LETTER TO CHAIRMAN ON 30.08.2010

Posted by Secretary General on 8/30/2010 04:02:00 PM with 96 comments
AICEIA/PRES/2010 ` Dated 30.08.2010

To
The Chairman,
Central Board of Excise & Customs,
Department of Revenue, Ministry of Finance,
North Block, New Delhi.

Sir,
Sub: Stay on promotions ordered by Calcutta High Court – Reg

A kind reference is invited to our letter dated 23.07.2010 wherein we had requested inter alia to direct all cadre controlling authorities to conduct the DPCs and keep the panel ready for issuance of promotion order immediately on vacation of the stay.

Now that the stay order issued by the Honourable High Court of Calcutta in WP (CT) No. 261/2008 has been modified on 27.08.2010 we request your good self to issue immediate instructions to the cadre controlling authorities to convene the DPC in their zone and to keep the panel ready. It may also be instructed that the promotion orders issued as a result of the DPC should be given effect from 01.07.2010 as the delay in issue of the order is only on account of the stay order. This stipulation is essential as the date of promotion would have a bearing in the matter of next promotion as well in the matter fixation of pay and also to ensure uniformity among the zones.

As you are well aware, the officers who are in the line of promotion have already put in more than 17 years of service and the delay in getting the promotions have caused deep sense of resentment and frustration among the officers. I request you that the agony may not be compounded further and necessary orders be issued.

In anticipation I remain.

Yours faithfully

The Secretary General,
All India Central Excise Inspector’s Association,
15/1, Strand Road, Custom House,
Kolkata.

Respected Sir,

Sub: Administrative decisions taken by the Chief Commissioner/ Commissioners against the Government Policies in this Zone – reg.


Please refer to this Circle communication Ref. No. AICEIA Chd. Circle/41/2010 dated 21.06.2010, addressed to the Hon’ble Member (CX), CBEC New Delhi with a copy to your good office.
The Chandigarh Circle feels its pleasure while informing that after the kind intervention of the Hon’ble Member as well as our All India Leadership, the Administration at Chandigarh Zone has given an opportunity to this Circle to discuss the issues raised. On coming to know that the issues raised have not been presented properly, the Chief Commissioner has passed directions to the Commissioners under his charge to give a serious look to the deviations from the agreed upon norms, inclusive of those deviations where relaxations were obtained, and take immediate corrective steps to ensure a transparent administration. On 10.08.2010, the Chief Commissioner has given a patient hearing assuring all the grievances of the Association to be resolved within 15 days. Thereafter, a Committee of Commissioners/Additional Commissioners was formed and we were given a hearing again on 19.08.2010 in which the issues raised were discussed in detail. The Committee of Commissioners/Additional Commissioners has assured immediate remedial action in respect of the deviations from the agreed upon norms and strict implementation of government directives. In the entire process of attending to the issues raised, the Chief Commissioner as well as the Committee of Commissioners/Additional Commissioners has gone beyond the call of the Association and we feel highly obliged while welcoming steps taken in this regard. However, much remains in action to maintain the spirits.
This all has been possible due to the futuristic approach of the Hon’ble Member (CX) as well as the Secretary General who have come to the rescue of saving honours as well as identity of the Zones/Circles under their charge. This Circle especially acknowledges the efforts put in by you as Secretary General, All India Central Excise Inspector’s Association, Kolkata, who stood by this Circle in this hour of crisis when the matters were presented to the Hon’ble Member (CX), CBEC, New Delhi. Your actions, surely, administrate the propriety of All India Leadership and the suggestion over discussions with the administration at Chandigarh Zone has supplemented your farsightedness. It has been a matter of pride for us as Chandigarh Circle is enjoying the blessings of All India body under the able leadership of Sh. Arun Zacharia, the President and Sh. Ajay Kundu, the Working President.
In view of the recent developments at the level of Administration at Chandigarh Zone, we request your goodself to put on hold the implementation of resolution arrived at the Central Executive Committee Meeting of AICEIA, Kolkata, held at Indore (M.P.). We are re-assured that all the administrative decisions taken against the Government policies shall be reversed. We shall be submitting the outcome of actions taken by the Administration, very shortly. In the meantime, you may like to inform the Hon’ble Member (CX), CBEC, New Delhi, appropriately.
Assuring the best on behalf of Chandigarh Circle.
Yours faithfully

Association was involved with the case of WPCT 261/2008 from the very first day. We have narrated in our ATR the reasons as to why we were unable to implead ourselves in the case. In fact Authorities in West Bengal tried their level best to lift the stay order but unfortunately the case was heard and as per the out come we have to wait for some more days. The CEC decided to implead in the case in order to modify the stay. However, at this point of time it may not be feasible to implead ourselves in the case as the same is posted for final disposal. Still, as per decision, we shall consult lawyers and shall implead ourselves in the case if situation permits.

CEC decided to go for combined movement with the other Cadre Associations in the Revenue Department and to form a Joint Action Committee along with the Superintendent Association in our department.

CEC applauded the efforts of Sri Hemant Kumar Ghoshal and Sri Ajit Kumar K.G. and M.P. Chattishgarh Circle for considerable contribution and special effort for spreading the Association within the region.

As decided in the meeting we shall write letters to the general secretary’s of different branches and Circles to submit their dues DDO certificates within August 31st and if the time is too short they can be given another months time on request; after this we shall write to Chief Commissioner of that particular zone about the status of the Association running there and for the non-responsive units it will be intimated to the concerned authority that they have no connection with the only recognized Association i.e. AICEIA.

Our Ex President wrote a letter to chairman to derecognize our Association and simultaneously applied for recognition of another Association. He asked Board to give the original name of AICEIA to his Association in case Board derecognizes our Association; this off-putting activity of some of our members is to be stopped immediately because this type of anti Association activities destroys the unity and good name of the Association. It was decided in the Indore CEC meeting that the members who are indulging in this type of conduct should be expelled from the Association after serving a show cause notice within a week of issuance of this circular. The office bearers shall discuss the reply (may be over phone, e-media etc) and after discussion final expulsion from the Association should be effected within not more than one month from the date of this CEC.

From 25th August 2010 we shall start our agitation Programme. On that date we would organize a lunch hour demonstration programme followed by black badge wearing from 30th Aug 2010 to 3rd September 2010, and a lunch hour Dharna Programme on 3rd September in front of Every Chief Commissioner’s office. Massive campaign programme in every Branch / Circle should be conducted from 3rd to 14th of September, a whole day Dharna Programme is to be organized in every Chief Commissioner’s office on 15th of September. Mean while we shall participate in the Strike Programme convened by National JCA & Confederation of Central Government Employees and in those Branches/ circles. Where Strike is not possible a sit –in demonstration can be organized.
