Stop shifting Sub-Regional PF Office from Jangipur

This petition had 64 supporters

Dear Sir / Madam,

It has been reported that the Sub-Regional PF Office in Jangipur (West Bengal) has planned to shift to Berhampore (West Bengal). With great concern, we would like to inform you that there are more than five and a half lakh (5.5 lacs) Bidi workers, particularly in and around Jangipur constituency and very strongly, they are the main beneficiaries of this PF Office.

This Sub-Regional PF Office of Jangipur was founded by the Shri Pranab Mukherjee, Defence Minister of that time and also MP of Jangipur at that time. The main reason for setting up this PF office to facilitate the service of PF office to the large population of Bidi Workers (mostly women) in Jangipur. As for this reason, they are befitted tremendously.

Now, recently it is reported that this regional PF office of Jangipur is proposed to shift from Jangipur to Berhampore (District town of Murshidabad, West Bengal) which located more than 52 km away from the present office in Jangipur. If this office is shifted from Jangipur to Berhampore then one has to spend a whole day for any PF office related work at Berhampore which is more than 100 km travelling (to and fro)have very much costly (in terms of bus fare) to the poor Bidi workers in Jangipur area.

Therefore, we would like to request you to please remain the present PF office set up at the same location (Jangipur) for the benefit of poor Bidi workers in Jangipur.

Yours faithfully,
Soumik Das
