Dear Members,

Bhaskar Dasgupta, Electrical – 1981, withdrew his nomination on 30 July 2017 i.e. within the time limit for withdrawal. His letter for withdrawal went to spam box of e-mail address of the Election Commission. Spam mails were not checked before compiling the final list of the contesting candidates. We are sorry for that.

Attached please find the revised list excluding the name of Bhaskar Dasgupta. Now the total number of Contesting Candidates stands at 49 (forty nine).

Name of Bhaskar Dasgupta will not be there in the ballot.

Thanks and regards,

Dear Electorates of GAABESU Election,

For convenience of electorates, election commission has decided to keep one ballot box (in addition to ballot box at GAABESU office) at a secured place under custody of election commission in B E College Ex-Students’ Club at CK-14 Salt Lake Kolkata – 700091 (near CK Market).

Any member who will receive his/her ballot through e-mail but will intend to drop the cast ballot in person may drop his cast ballot in the ballot box in B E College Ex-Students’ Club by signing the register mentioning his/her name and batch.

Ballot Box in B E Ex-Students’ Club will be available for dropping from evening of 07 August 2017 till 6.00PM on 18 August 2017. On other days ballot box in B E College Ex-Students’ Club will be accessible from 09:00AM to 08:00 PM.

Thanks and regards,

Dear Electorates of GAABESU Election,

Although arrangement for keeping Ballot Box was made for convenience of the members, some of the contesting candidates expressed serious concern in keeping ballot box for dropping cast ballot. They feel that fairness of the Election process would be seriously hampered if ballot boxes are kept for dropping cast ballots in person.

We would request all members receiving ballot by e-mail to return back scan/photo of the cast ballot to Election Commission mail as an attachment from his/her personal mail address registered with GAABESU.

Since Ballot Box in GAABESU office has been kept from 07 August 2017 it would be sealed at 6:00 PM today (08 August 2017). After that no facility of personal dropping of ballot will be available. 

Ballot Box has not yet been kept in B E College Ex-Students’ Club. Decision of keeping a Ballot Box there stands automatically withdrawn.

We appeal to all the members for a healthy spirit of free and fair election. Election process can definitely be free and fair if the electorates want to.

Dear Electorates of GAABESU Election,

Election Commission has been getting many mails from Electorates expressing their inconvenience for closing ballot box at GAABESU office after keeping it open for two days. During the period the ballot box atGAABESU office was kept open some of the electorates dropped their ballot personally in the ballot box kept in GAABESU office as per direction given.

Since keeping a ballot box at GAABESU Office was as per initial announcement and intimation to electorates individually while sending ballots, the Election Commission reviewed the decision and decided unanimously to reopen the ballot box at GAABESU office with effect from 12:00 noon (IST) on 11 August 2017 to 06:00 PM (IST) on 18 August 2017 excepting Sunday and other holidays (i.e. GAABESU office shall remain closed on 13 August 2017 and 15 August 2017).

As already announced members dropping ballots in person shall mention their name, batch and sign on the register kept in the GAABESU office.

Since keeping ballot box in B E College Ex-Students’ Club at Salt Lake, as subsequently announced, was not there in the initial announcement, no ballot box has been kept in B E College Ex-Students’ Club at Salt Lake as already intimated. Inconvenience to some of the electorates for this is regretted.

Postal ballots from persons whom ballots were sent by post, are being kept in a secured manner.

Thanks and regards,

Dear All,

Some of our mails sent to electorates bounced back. We have been able to resend in most cases.

We have not been able to get correct e-mail address of following members. It would be helpful if alumni knowing them, as their batch mate or otherwise, could request them to write to GAABESU to register their correct/ present e-mail address so that we can communicate with them from Election Commission after receiving their correct e-mail address from GAABESU.

Election Commission directs that the Executive Committee (EC) should immediately declare the date, time and venue of the AGM and same should be cross checked with the Election Commission, to ascertain their convenience. Election Commission would prefer that the AGM be held on a Saturday afternoon with minimum further time lapse.

Election Commission wiil announce the date for counting, where candidates or their formally designated representative will be permitted to be present, only on receipt of confirmation from EC about the despatch of the notice for AGM.

Election Commission will not entertain any further communication on this subject, except for the formal communication on the date, venue and time of the AGM.
