Circular- 08/09

Posted by Secretary General on 4:50 PM with 10 comments

Comrades,

Right after completion of our 2nd phase of agitation we got an appointment with member (P&V) that we have intimated to you all through our Circular 07/09.

Immediately after the meeting Board had issued one letter to the Pr.CCA’s office requesting them to modify there letter and to instruct the PAO’s not to deduct salary on the basis of the Deputy Controller of Account’s letter. A copy of the letter we have already published in our blogger (aiceia.blogspot.com).

The meeting convened by the Joint Secretary (Per), Dept. of Expenditure turned out to be a delaying tactic. The Expenditure intimated that they require more time to analyse the issue vis-a-vis the demands from other cadres and they wants to take a holistic view of the matter and after that it would be placed before the Finance Minister. We pressed for fixing a time frame but the expenditure was non-committal. After this meeting, we had an informal meeting with ITEF and Customs Preventive Federation and decided to seek a joint meeting with the Revenue Secretary.

On 12th of October All the three organizations under the revenue department sent a joint letter to Revenue Secretary seeking his intervention in this matter. Further these three organizations decided to sit in a joint meeting in Delhi at the earliest.

In the mean time Office bearers while contacted over phone have opined positively in favour of industrial action, some of them suggested for indefinite Strike action, hence, AICEIA has taken a decision to go for token strike in the last week of November along with other organizations of Revenue Department, AICEIA is trying its level best to garner Superintendent Associations support and participation in the token strike.

A detailed campaign programme chalked out and placed under neath:

Income Tax Employees Federation.

All India Central Excise Inspectors' Association

. All India Customs Preventive Services Federation

Shri P.V.Bhide

Secretary, Revenue

Ministry of Finance,

Govt. of India,

North Block

New Delhi. 110001

Dear Sir,

Sub : Revision of Grade Pay of Inspectors of Incometax, Central Excise

And Customs Departments. Reg:

We solicit your kind reference to the discussion at the meeting chaired by your goodself on23rd July, 2009 on the above subject.

You had been good enough to direct all concerned at the said meeting tha the question of trant of revised grade pay at Rs 4600/- as per the Revised Pay Rules, 2008, Part B and C Section Para ii applicable in the case of Inspectors of Revenue department must be separately considered, divourced from the similar issues pertaining to other categories of personnel. You had also assured the representatives of the Ministerial Staff of Central Excise Department that their case for up-gradation of grade pay would be discussed and sorted out separately.

In the light of the said decision,the organizations representaitng Inspectors in both CBEC and CBDT were invited for a discussion with the Joint Secretary (Per) on 24.8.2009 when certain alternate suggestions were mooted on behalf of the Official side, which however did not meet to address the issue.

We were again asked to attend a meeting today chaired by the Joint Secretary (Per) to discuss the issue further. Having placed our submission in the arlier meeting, we were hopeful of a settlement of this issue in today’s meeting. We are to however, regretfully inform you that the stand taken by the official side in the meeting was contrary to what was decided by you on 23rd July, 2009 as also the position taken by the Department of Expenditure on 24th August, 2009 in as much as they have informed us categorically that the issue of revision of grade pay for Inspectors of the Revenue Department cannot be decided in isolation and they would collect details of all similar cases from all departments of the Government of India so as to consider the repercussions and financial implications before the issue is placed for the consideration of the Hon’ble Finance Minister. They further added that the settlement of the question of revision of grade pay of Inspectors of Revenue Department is likely to be delayed. They also could not indicate even a time frame in which they would be able to take a view in the matter.

We are totally disappointed over this unsavoury development and feel obliged to meet your goodself in view of your earlier decision to consider the case of Inspectors separately. We shall be grateful, if you will kindly indicate the time and date convenient to you so that the representatives of the Federations/Associations, which represent the Inspectors in CBDT/CBEC call call on you.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Ashok B. Salunkh Kousik Roy I.B Mishra SecretaryGenral,ITEF Secretary Gerenal, AICEIA SecretaryGeneral,AICPEF
