Dear Editor,

Let me start from the first day I met Mr. Suresh Sharma, Director of Satkar Travels along with Mr R.K. Narula , Vice President, Satkar Travels in the chamber of Adv Naveen Mishra. Mr Sharma  expressed his intention of sending group to my hotel  on signing  an agreement for 16 months . We agreed and next day they both left to Delhi .

Last week of Oct , 2 management staff with 2 cook landed and took charge and an amount of Rs 4,00,000/- in 3 instalments was deposited . I insisted that I will need 3 month advance and one month rent ie; 10 lakhs  if they are willing to take for the said period or else I will charge them as per actual .

The agreement never happened . I kept on sending mails calming for room  rent. They said that as their Manager & staff are in the hotel they would clear the payment .

On the 1st of Dec , I requested for the money and warned them for consequences. 4th Dec  I filled a written complained  to P S Aberdeen , on 5th another complained , On 6th Dec I had to switch of the power supply at 6 am and forced all guest to either pay or check out . Till this time No action was taken by the police department. Yesterday evening the Agencies had sent return tickets for their  staff and directed them to move out to different hotel . Today even the manager of the company  left and hotel and are hiding in Hotel Vivek , Garacharma . Surprisingly on action is taken and I came the agent are leaving for Delhi by after noon flight .

Requesting you to please take up this matter.

It is to bring to your notice that the coconut trees planted in the premises of the G.B Pant hospital (near female ward and dialysis unit and in the parking area) has become a safety hazard for the patients and the general public passing through that area. The coconuts keep on falling continuously creating a health hazard and can cause serious accidents with the patients and public in future. To avoid any such mishaps, it is requested to kindly bring to the knowledge of the authorities to cut down the coconut trees in the premises of G.B. Pant Hospital area.

Dear Editor,

It is learnt that most of time commuters who violates traffic rules end up paying fine 10 times higher than actual. It is very sad that people are facing such problems even in today's time.

Sir, as per rule the officers of the rank of ASI and above of A&N Traffic Police have powers to prosecute the violators at the spot, but in case the violator chooses to go to the court, challans are sent to the court. In Port Blair mostly no such option is given to the commuters, who violate traffic rules, instead they are forced to pay the penalties on the spot.

Therefore to increase transparency in working of A&N, Traffic police and reduce possibility of misuse of prosecution power, I am requesting your good self to publish an article giving details of basic Traffic penalties of A&N Motor Vehicle ACT in your esteemed paper on public interest. And also I would like to request the general public to demand third copy of challan with section and brief description of the offence along with the payment receipt of their challans.
