W/O, Gautam G. Goswami

Western Railway.
 
This is to bring to your notice that my husband Mr. Gautam Goswami (CHRI, GIM) was transferred to GIM from ADI on promotion and he is working at GIM since April 2010 to till date.
 
He has also been transferred back to ADI station as per your office letter number EC/839/1/Reservation Staff (P.T) O. O. Number 27/11 dated 31st January, 2011. But due to some reason what so ever it is not known that this order has been cancelled for which no office order has been received and he is still working at GIM station.
 
However,  I am aged 46 years, suffered from Tuberculosis 22 years back. And due to this recently I have been diagonised with low haemoglobin counts and was asked to get hospitalised. But due to my liabilities in absence of my husband and no relatives nearby, I have to single handedly take care of aged (more than 85 years) old father in law and mother in law, an unmarried daughter where I do not have any male member in my family, I had to refuse to get hospitalised. Adding to this terrible situation we have to manage 2 establishments (1 at Gandhidham for my husband and 1 here in Ahmedabad)
 
 I would like to request you to please consider my pitiable situation (you can hopefully understand) and help me to get in touch with some authority to transfer my husband back to Ahmedabad Area so that he can take care of the family along with his duties. However, I have emailed my situation to srdcm.adi@wr.railnet​.gov.in and drm.adi@wr.railnet.g​ov.in but didnot get any response from such senior Authorities. 
 

Hope for a positive response at the earliest.
