It is known to all of us that hundreds of villages have also been washed away alongwith thousands of human lives.
The Income Tax Employees Federation felt it imperative on its part to devote our energy and resource into providing relief and succour to those affected and rebuilding the lost property and infrastructure and rehabilitation of the people. We have, therefore, decided to bestow one day’s salary towards the above objectives, through the Prime Ministers Relief Fund. We have also called upon all our members to donate the same to the PMRF.
Since all the Non-gazetted employees are our members and with a view to ensure speedy and proper remittance of the fund, we request your goodself to kindly issue necessary directions to the Cadre Controlling Authorities to effect the deduction and remit the funds to the Prime Ministers Relief Fund.
