The END Of AN ERA..
It was in sept,1974 that a batch of around 40 persons were appointed as Inspectors in the dept,which included many DRs and good number of promotees as well.The largest batcch of DRs which included talented Sports men in various fields,some of them represented India as well after joining the Dept.
All were lucky enough to reach upto Asst.Commissioner,though some had a touch and go for one or two months and many had become DCs and served upto ten-Twelve years as AC/DC.Since all were adhoc,their claim for further promotions were not given..
In January,2013,we are bidding farewell to this Lucky batch of 1974--with rett. of the TWO Asst Commissioners viz.Mr VP Omkumar ,veteran Basketball;and NV Aravindakshan ,Veteran Athlete-Hurdles Champion in CRS sports meet for max. no. of years.
The 1974 batch of Inspectors had been arranging their annual meet in every sept,for last so many years,perhaps UNIQUE of its kind till now.
Let us place on record the yeomen services rendered by these two collegues and also that of the entire batch of 1974.
Personally, I take this opportunity to salute all my friends of 1974 batch and wish them all the best in their life after retirement.
MAY GOD BLESS ALL.
