In 1991 All India Radio Administrative staff Association (AIRASA) was started with limited members at Madras with the efforts of Comrade S.N. Somu. Later it was decided to conduct South Zone conference of AIRASA. Comrade Somu had travelled all over south to mobilise the support and to reconstruct the of administrative staff association. South Zone convention was conducted during October 1991 at Chennai. Comrade Somu was elected as President of ADASA and served during 1993-96. He traveled all over India to campaign for ADASA and to bring unity among administrative staff. His efforts to strengthen ADASA are remarkable and unforgettable. He has joined the service in 1976 as CG.II. He got promotion in 1984 as CG.I. and in 2007 as Head Clerk at AIR, Tuticorn. He has worked at Bangalore, Coimbatore, Trivandrum and Kodikanal also. Now Comrade Somu is going to retire on 31st of May, 2011 as Head Clerk from AIR, Chennai. We, the members of ADASA salute the leader Comrade S.N. Somu. We can never forget the support extended to ADASA. We wish him a happy and peaceful retired life.


  1. i have seen same on adasa web site but there is no provision to express views. he is the man who made to realize me that association of clerical staff is there. i m there in adasa because of him. but sorry to say people who r there and were there in adasa on positions kept him in dark room . i wish him a happy retired life with a hope with confidence that i will have his guidance for the betterment of cadre in future also.

  2. I am thankful to the blog for my portrait and also acknowledge the comment of GK Acharya. But I dont understand the statement of keeping me in dark rather deny the statement. I am very well available in the main stream of ADASA and everyday the people in the position kept me informed the latest position. I once again assure you that I am available for any work in ADASA.
