No-halt hurdle in commuter path
At the eastern entry/exit point of Park Circus railway station on the Sealdah South section, a no-parking signboard has been recently put up. However, it doesn't mention the agency which has installed it. Since fewer buses and autorickshaws are stopping near the sign, commuters are having to walk quite a distance and at times, even cross the tracks to reach the combined platform. Civic engineers should work out a better alternative so that people entering the station from the eastern side are saved the inconvenience.
Scurry to pay phone bill
It has become routine for BSNL to send bills to its landline subscribers just a few days before the payment due date. My latest bill was dispatched by CalTel on January 25 and was received by me on February 4. Since the due date was on February 6, I had to hurry and cancel other urgent work so that I could make the payment in time. Is this a deliberate ploy of BSNL to force subscribers to opt for the electronic clearance system'
Down the drain
Baranagar municipal authorities are careless about wastage of water from roadside stand pipes under their jurisdiction. Water has been flowing continuously from one such pipe near my residence for quite a few days. I request the municipality to immediately curb the wastage.
