  3. 3. The wise authors of IIMpressions knew what they were writing when they had described Swapneel as “a person with the best interests of the world at hand”. Indeed, he had the best interests of everyone when he sent this mass mail on Nov 27 th 1998 Hi, this is for all those guys who have taken credit cards from Citibank on campus. as far as I remember, those guys had reissued cards during their cyberzone inauguration with the understanding that these would be free from that moment on for a period of 2 years. This was supposed to be irrespective of whether you already had taken the card on campus during PGP1 or you had the card from when you were working. now they have applied annual fees on the credit card. I called them up. they started saying stuff like : you are working now, you have already had 2 free years etc. so we wont waive off the fees. But i happen to know that they have waived the fees for the symbiosis class of 97 , so they might as well do it for us. if anyone knows anything more about this, let me know. also, don't forget to call in and fight with them . they waived my colleagues‘ fees, who are from symbiosis and my own add-on card fees after 2-3 calls & a threat to return the card.
