[14.12.2016]It is the unorganised workers who are the worst hit.
It is the unorganised workers, who are very severely affected by the Note Ban, imposed by the Modi government. Unorganised workers constitute 90% of the total work force of the country. They find it extremely difficult to get their wages since their wages are paid in cash. Even after more than one month of the demonetisation, the severity of the problem has not reduced. Times of India, which is widely considered to be a pro-corporate paper, has reported yesterday the 13-12-2016 that 23.4 lakh workers did not get any work in November, 2016. No work means they will not get any money for their livelihood. Still long queues are standing before banks and ATMs. But Prime Minister and Finance Minister keep saying that the situation is coming to normal.
[13.12.2016]Organise massive rallies at circle and district levels tomorrow the 14.12.2016.

They told the OSD that the exam was conducted online and that it has been conducted in the most transparent, fare and free manner.
