    dear sir today on 10 jan 2013 the punjab national bank declared the result of SWO ‘A’ from the state of Punjab. The total seat from Punjab was 326 out of them 47 seat reserved for ex- serviceman. The bank had called 82 ex-serviceman for interview and hardly 37 ex-serviceman reached for interview. I was also among 37 persons and i was filling all the eligibility criteria and didn’t get selected. I don’t understand why. I am writing this comment because last year there was 60 seat reserved for ex-serviceman out of 600 from Punjab and the bank has filled only 12 seat and the candidates reached for interview was 200.One thing I also want to bring in your notice that all the public sector bank declaring result viz name SC, ST, Gen, PH, EXS but Punjab national bank is not doing like that.

      Dear Karunakaran, I am your batchmate M.Senguttuvan, 93597, left INS Circars’ Main Camp within ONE month having got selected for the Artificer Apprenticeship course.& hence we could not meet again.

      Your “Tree Plantation” initiative in memory of INS Khukhri Martyrs is a Great One. Unfortunately, I came to know of it just now & feel sad that I could not participate in it. In the last 2 years, I had been to INS Adyar
      many times & tried to visit the VSF Chennai Chapter. Bur the Office was always closed & there was no mention of any Timings. No one was able to give the right information. Could you kindly give the contact details of VSF Chennai Chapter & of your own if you don’t mind? My Contact No.09845023208, e-mail ID:, Bangalore

      Thanks and Best Regards,

    i am EXCHAA retired fromNnAVY IN 1994 AND I AM YET TO BE SUITABLE RE ENGAGED WITH A DECENT JOB. The Tade certificate issued to me by the CABS ,navy was not appreciated in my civil interviewS. also i do not have any official record to prove my service is equal to a degree for the purpose of job in civil. With the long time i am not in touch with my technical profession, . i reqiuest the forum to support me with any technical or administrative job which have the minimum dignity of my rank and i am sure, will keep the tradition of navy on my engagement. i am a resident of cochin and likes to based at cochin as my chjidren are schooling here. I request VSF to help and support me. i am aged 53 plus and have only few more years to serve..
