Thanks to the Postal Department, a candidate from the city, who had applied for the post of Junior Trackman in the Railways got a call letter for the written examination, but 12 days after the test was held!
D. Shankar Silaparasetty of Nandagiri Nagar at Akkayyapalem had applied to the Railway Recruitment Cell of East Coast Railway at Bhubaneswar. The examination was scheduled for June 10.
The date on the envelope shows that the letter was posted by the Railways at Bhubaneswar on June 4. The stamping shows that it was received at Akkayyapalem Post Office on June 22 and it was delivered the same day to the addressee. The letter took 18 days to travel a distance of around 400 km.
The Postal Department must have thought ‘better late than never’.
But alas, the candidate has lost a golden opportunity.
