There was a meeting by CM today regarding city's beautification matters. It was decided that World Tourism Day on 27th Sep would be celebrated on the theme "Dream - Green & Clean". I mentioned that we'll celebrate it at Digha. Later in the day, I had a meeting with Soumen Pal, EO DSDA. I told him to have a meeting involving the DM, SDO Panchayats etc. Here is a photo from the web on this year's logo:
A delegation of CII headed by the Director - Skills, Affirmative Action and School Education met me today to discuss about Skill Development. I told that a 5-storied Vocational Training Centre creating about 2.5 lakh sq ft is nearing completion and is expected to be completed within the year. I said that they could take it up with the Technical Education department to see how best it could be operationalised.

One Mr Jain - himself a Chartered Accountant - met me today to expedite his plot transfer in Salt Lake. He said he was ready to pay the govt transfer fees right away. He'd applied in the prescribed format a few days ago. I have taken steps to expedite the matter and I hope it will be the first such case.
