CIRCULAR- 06/10 Dated: 30.09.2010.

Dear Comrades,

As of now D.P.C. is completed through out India and a good no. of our members assumed their new charges. We bid adieu to them and would like to thank all the members for showing their unprecedented patience in resolving this subject. We are persuading further for the effective date in the post Kolkata High court interim order scenario.

We congratulate each and every member who stead fast to our call for agitation on our 9 point charter of demands as this compelled CBEC to start dialogue with the only recognized Association. We had a comprehensive discussion on the points raised by the Association in its agitational programme

Point No. I The ongoing cadre Restructuring Exercise:

Chairman intimated that Finance Minister desires that Restructuring Exercise should be completed at the earliest and this time Board is proposing creation of a good no. of Superintendent and Assistant Commissioner’s post inclusive of other Class-I posts.

We have gathered that a huge no. of vacancy would be created in the superintendent as well as in the A.C/D.C. level. Before 23rd Sept. 2010 the Restructuring file went past Revenue Secretary, now the file is lying with Expenditure. In the mean time Finance Minister expressed his desire that the restructuring should be completed by the 31st of December, 2010. We have come to know that in the final proposal which was cleared by Revenue Secretary there is a proposal of 7800( app.) post of Superintendent and 4300+ (app.) post of class-I officers which will be fully promotional.

Point No. 2 Notional fixation of pay of Inspectors of Central Excise in the pre-revised scale of Rs. 6500-10500 with effect from 01.01.1996.

We argued that the rejection of the above demand by the Department of Expenditure is a colourable exercise of power as the principles adopted by the Government in granting retrospective effect while upgrading the pay scales in respect of other cadres, have not been applied in our case. We have submitted a non-exhaustive list of such cases:

No.

Name of the post / Ministry

Decision

1

Assistant Manager, Mail Motor Service, Department of Posts

Revised pay scale of Rs. 5500-9000 approved with effect from 1/1/1996

2

Higher pay scales granted notionally from 1/1/1996 with arrears payable with effect from 19/2/2003

This being a blatant case of discrimination of the officers of Revenue Department vis-Ă -vis the officers of other department we request that the issue be taken up with the Secretary (Expenditure) through the Secretary (Revenue).

Initially Chairman replied that CBEC has nothing to do, but afterwards he was agreed to our plea and assured that CBEC shall try to have a discussion with the Revenue Secretary in this regard.

Point No. 3 Fixation of minimum pay corresponding to pre-revised scale of Rs. 7450- 11500 consequent to up-gradation ordered on 13.11.2009.

In this regard we have pointed out that consequent to the upgradation of Grade Pay of Inspectors to Rs. 4600/- vide Boards letter F. No. A-26017/132/2009 – Ad II-A dated 23.11.2009 and Department of Expenditure OM no. 1/1/2008 – IC dated 13.11.2009 the pay of an Inspector who was drawing pay in the pay scale of 6500-10500 as on 01.01.2006 at a stage lesser than Rs. 7450/- has to be first upgraded to Rs. 7450/- and then fixed in the revised pay band by multiplying it with 1.86. However, in CBEC the Inspectors has been merely granted the higher-grade pay of Rs. 4600/- without re-fixing the pay in the pay band as above. This has also resulted in a anomalous situation where a senior Inspector who was in service prior to 01.01.2006 draws a pay less that an Inspector recruited after 01.01.2006.

This remedial action in order to bring the pay of the senior on par with the junior has already been done in the case of Central Secretariat Service but has not been extended to our officers. We have referred to the pay fixation done in the Central Secretariat Service Vide F.No.50/46/2008-AD1B order no. A/56 of 2010 dated 19th June 2010 and A/116 of 2010 dated 6th August 2010 and in the Department of Expenditure Vide F.No. A-26018/1/2008-ADII dated 7TH September 2010.

Chairman replied that Board has already sent the respective file to expenditure, expenditures view will be intimated within a shortwhile. How ever Board shall pursue for this issue.

Point No. 4 Anomaly in pay of 1992 batch Inspectors who received ACP prior to 20.04.2004.

anomaly in the pay of 1992 batch direct recruit Inspectors started initially consequent to the upgradation of pay scales of the post of Superintendent of Central Excise from Rs.6500-10500 to Rs. 7500-12500 w.e.f. 21/4/2004 vides Order No.6/37/98…dated 21/4/2004, issued by the Department of Expenditure. There arose a situation where those Inspectors who matured for ACP prior to the upgradation dated 21.04.2004 were given a lower pay stage than their junior officers of the same batch who matured for ACP subsequent to 21.04.2004. The demand for stepping up was denied on an erroneous premise that no anomaly is recognized where pay is fixed under ACP scheme which is purely personal to the employee and has no relation to seniority of the employees. We had challenged the above disposal by highlighting that the anomaly in pay has not been caused by ACP but due to the up-gradation of pay scale of Inspectors and Superintendent; that the same problem could have arisen in

the case of promotion also; that the situation highlighted is a unique one and is not covered by any of the clarifications issued by the DOPT with regard to the ACP scheme and does not pertain to the implementation of ACP scheme and hence the remedy lies elsewhere; and that Note 9 to Rule 7 of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 1997 contemplates stepping up of pay on par with that of the junior in a case where the senior is getting promotion before revision of pay-scales and junior after revision of pay-scales if the following conditions are satisfied

  • Both the senior and the junior employees should belong to the same cadre and the posts in which they have been promoted should be identical in the same cadre
  • Pre-revised and revised scales of pay of the lower and higher posts in which they are entitled to draw their pay should be identical.
  • The senior should draw at time of promotion pay equal to or higher than that of the junior
  • The anomaly should be directly due to application of FR 22 or any other Rule regulating pay-fixation on promotion in the revised scale,

In addition to the above stated reasons, we requested for a reconsideration of the decision on the following grounds.

  1. The Central Administrative Tribunal, Hyderabad Bench in its order dated 13.06.2008 in OA 31/2007 filed by Shri. Chalapati Rao & Ors had decided in favour of the instant demand and since the Honourable High Court of Andhra Pradesh declined to stay the order of the Tribunal, the Department decided to implement the order in favour of the applicants vide F. No. A-26017/95/2008 Ad II A dated 22.01.2010.
  2. The Central Administrative Tribunal, Chandigarh Bench in order dated 19.01.2010 in OA 156-JK/2009 filed by Ashok Kumar had directed to step up the pay of the senior officer who was not entitled for ACP on par with his junior who was in receipt of ACP. The Writ Petition filed by the Department against the CAT order has been dismissed.
  3. In view of the favourable judgments of various judicial forums, there is every chance of proliferation of litigation seeking the same relief. In terms of the National Litigation Policy the Department is duty bound to take steps for unnecessary litigation when the law on the subject is clear.

Chairman stated that the High Court pronounced the subject order only for the appellant , as expenditure rejected the subject issue earlier it can not be given to all the 1992 batch Inspectors straight away, bending to the pressure of the Association Chairman opined for a review of this case once again.

Point No.5 Lifting of ban on ICT

The ban on Inter Commissionerate order by the Board in 2004 is causing acute hardship to officers in Group B & C level. In the present scenario where officers are recruited on an all India basis but allotted permanently to a regional zone has further compounded the agony. However, Board vide Letter F. No. A- 22015/19/2006 AD III A dated 27.03.2009 had partially relaxed the ban to facilitate officers having spouse working in Government /PSU to avail ICT, it does not take care of the requirements of the cadre.

The reason behind the discontinuance of ICT at the first instance was the protracted litigation on the question of seniority. Litigation in this regard had arisen only because Board on some occasion tinkered with the policy by deviating from the well-established principles on seniority. Board had formulated the policy guidelines for Inter Commissionerate Transfer with effect from 20.05.1980 which was very specific that the transfer would be made against direct recruitment quota only, existing in the seniority zone to which transfer is sought and upon joining, the transferee would be placed in the bottom of seniority list of the year on which his/her transfer took place.. These guidelines have been upheld even by the Apex Court and therefore the perception that ICT would lead to litigation is unfounded.

In this regard we have pointed out that in the next door CBDT a well defined policy on ICT is in vogue. The principles adopted by them are similar to our 20.05.1980 circular and their scheme of ICT is working smoothly.

We have submitted that the facilities available to our counterparts in CBDT may be extended to us also by reintroducing ICT in accordance with the principles put forth in our circular dated 21.05.1980. Thanking you.

Initially chairman was reluctant to take up the case but later on promised to raise it in full Board Meeting and to short out the problem.

Point No. 6 JCM s should be conducted at the Board level and at local level at regular intervals.

We have pointed out that the JCM is an important Government Machinery which is not functional at the Board & Ministry level, in absence of JCM forum meetings the consultations/meetings are becoming procrastinated dialogue without reaching any tangible settlement on any issue. We have demanded immediately procedure should be initiated to conduct JCM at the Board level. Chairman assured of initiation of the process.

Point No. 7 Abolition of control room duty and uniform in Central Excise and Service Tax.

We have pointed out that in the post tobacco regime there is no necessity of continuation of Uniform and in the era of cell phone the utilization of Inspectors In control room is obsolete and misuse of man power, it is also to mention that there is no statutory provisions to wear uniform as is evident through a RTI reply from CBEC.

Chairman replied that the issue is under examination, other organizations like Superintendent of C.Ex. have not yet demanded such abolition. During our course of meeting Chairman intimated that Uniform Allowance is expected to be doubled shortly.

Point No. 8 The 1% incentive on incremental revenue should be utilized for providing facilities and infrastructure for lower level staffs also.

At the time of discussion on this point it was pointed out that in CBEC the benefit of 1% incentive has not been percolated to the lower level officers while in CBDT all the staffs are enjoying the benefit after it was duely considered by CBDT. Chairman agreed to discuss the issue in full Board meeting to arrive at a conclusion.

In the meeting, apart from the above issues we have discussed the following issues:

1. Departmental Clarification on MACP

Consequent upon issuance of the revised clarification on MACP published by DOPT we requested Chairman to rectify the departmental clarification on MACP.

Chairman replied that the issue will be examined whether any further clarification is necessary and if required necessary clarification will be issued.

2. Protocol duty performed by Inspectors to various higher officials and VVIP’s:

We requested to stop this practice of protocol duty. Chairman clearly stated that nowhere it is written that Inspectors or any officer are bound to perform protocol duty. Hence, if there is any report from any officer of excess that should be reported to Board and Board in turn shall take due measure for this type of overindulgence.

We would like to request our Circle/ Branch Secretaries and all iNdia office bearers to organize meetings through which we shall convince our members not to do ant protocol duty, if necessary we can issue a mandate for this, if there is any negative action from the local authority immediately we shall spread the fire of protest through out India.

3. Non-functioning of the departmental anomaly committee :

We have argued that the basic issues of anomalies are yet to be settled and there is no indication that it would be done in the near future. We requested our Board to impress upon Revenue Secretary to organize departmental Anomaly committee meeting immediately.

In our last circular we forget to mention that in our Indore CEC held on 31st July and 1st August 2010 it was decided that the next convention will be held at Tamilnadu Circle, time and venue will be decided by the circle.

It is also to mention that all the circle and branches are requested to send fund for the All India Association forthwith otherwise it will be hard-hitting for this Association to function after October 2010.

On the organizational front we are waiting for the reply of Pune, Patna and Mumbai Circle, We have not yet received neither DDO certificate nor Association Contribution from the following Circles/ zones

  • Mumbai Branch
  • Pune Circle
  • Bihar Jharkhand Circle
  • North East Circle
  • Vizag Branch
  • Guntur Branch
  • Hyderabad Branch
  • Noida Branch
  • Meerut Branch

As we were not aware of AP Circle and Hyderabad Branch, we have given temporary charge to one Industrious and responsible Inspector Sri Vigneshawar Raju for the Hyderabad Branch as well as Andhra Pradesh Circle. We are in search of proper leadership in the zones where there is either no activity or negative activity.

If we won’t get any reply from the defaulting zones by the end of October 2010 then we shall not allow these circles / Branches in our next Convention.

To

The President,

All office Bearers,

Circle and Branch Secretaries Comradely Yours

For wide circulation

All the friends,
kindly gone through my comments (as finding of Ett. Order no.127/2010 dated 30.9.2010 i.e; promotion order of Supdt. of Kolkata Zone) at bottom of the AICEIA's publication of Monday,27, Sepetember'2010

rajesh said...

Yes thats it horizon,, i repeatedly told that all possible stance are being taken to thwart the promotion of reserve category officers

rajesh said...

what you have pointed out is only tip of the iceberg

vengat said...

this is with reference to ict.
trichy unit brought the issue of ict in indore meet of newly appointed officers who have been appointed from all india merit list and the issue of ict of such officers to various cca's. hence, to take up the issue of such officers with protection of seniority of these officers as and when all india seniority is used.

similarly the macp/ acp issue
should be taken up in the light of conclusions arrived at macp anomalies committee meeting & dopt clarification that officers who have been place nfsg after 4 years of promotion will be eligible after 10 years from that date or after 30 years of service for 3 rd macp.

rnair said...

in mumbai, in the promotion orders issued, a SC officer who was placed below the officers eligible for promotion under the reserved category and who is of 1993 batch has been promoted under merit alongwith 89 batch officers. Is this the meaning of merit? I can understand a 89 batch SC officer promoted under merit along with general category officer and thereby allowing a SC officer of the later batch to be promoted in the reserved category. But here i think the DOPT circular is being misinterpreted and the general category officers are being victimised and losing their chance of promotion.

harizon said...

Mr.rnair,
certainly there is some extra ordinary incidence . To implement any kind of rules , some unusaual picture may . Like pay fixation .The Inspector who joined after 21.4.1992 they are getting one increment more than that of Inspector joined earlier in the same batch .

In this your case , some thing mistake or due to other ground is there .
Say, there is no appointment between the said candidate of 1989 and 1993; or dirct recriuted batch of 1989 is adjusted with promotee inspector of the batches of 1993 or vise-versa ; or it is an eye wash ;

Know that After adjustment of 3:1 of direct and Promotee, seniority list is prepared irespective of Reserve uoata or others .

harizon said...

Add aftyer last para-
Say, 3 Direct then one promotee,then 3 direct, on promotee . This promotee and Direct may be from separate batch .
Here the Merit list will be as :-D,D,D,P,D,D,D,P,D,D,and so on.

Bhagwan Singh said...

Dear friends,

We appear to be fighting over the trivial issues and losing sight of the real issue - we are bothered about the slots of Direct Vs. Promotees, General Versus reserved category and so on. We fail to see the real culprit - acute stagnation in our cadre and discrimination to our cadre on pay and promotional matters. Instead of addresing the real issue of stagnation, we are fighting the real issue.

To suffer and fight amongst ourselves appears to be the fate and habit of our cadre. In the coming restructuring, the litigation and regional disparity will further widen, as neither the Zones running ahead in promotions nor our Board appears to be serious to address the issues.

So please take the bull by the horns instead of running ahead of it.

Jai Hind,


Bhagwan Singh

rnair said...

If Mr. Bhagwan Singh was in place of that general category officer who was waiting anxiously for his first promotion after 21 years, only to find himself without a promotion after issue of promotion order, will he still preach this way? Iam not fighting with any category as the concerned officer is not at fault in any way. If there is a mistake, it is of the administration in interpreting the orders issued by DOPT. Hence i would request all officers who have knowledge about this issue to post their blogs as it will help to take remedial action in the matter if necessary. It has been confirmed that the SC officer promoted in merit is of 93 batch placed below the SC officers promoted under reserved category and moreover there are many general category officers, direct as well as promotees between the last promoted general category officer and the promoted SC officer. I would also request the association to give their opinion on this issue.

venugopal said...

Regarding MACP, i have been from the cadre of LDC. I have put more than 10 years of service as Inspector. My promotion as TA was in my way to get my 3rd MACP. No one giving voice to our case. Like me, many more promotee Inspectors have not seen their 3rd MACP. Even though Bhuvaneswer Commissionerate clearly stated that promotion to the cadre of TA is not to be considered as Promotion. This is being an all India Issue, kindly take up the issue with Board and get a clarificatory orders. So that we people get our 3rd MACP.

meena said...

i saw in hydcustomsblog
"jack: if u don't like brother inspector forgive, but don't reveal about date and time when brother has done has rape.
8 Oct 10, 01:28 PM
rajkiran: icestea says aiceia is false. aiceia says icestea is false. after all both r fellow brother inspectors. don't reveal about brothers even when they do rapes at this crucial cadre restructuring time.
8 Oct 10, 01:23 PM
???: dear raju, respect all indpectors even if our friend inspector has done 100 rapes !!! now icestea sent a letter to vigilance delhi about u & Mehaboobnagar Range transfer & leasing.

it seems simply two good brothers r fighting with each other at important time.

RAM said...

Well said Mr.Meena.

But it is also to be noted Raju should rastarain himself by looking after the interest of the Inspectors and need not act as a propaganda Secretary-like to AICEIA. He may be having his own whims and fancies - It is like - this alone is the Original Silk Shop and remaining are duplicate etc- advertisement. This should be desisted.

It is like throwing mud on each other. Now it seems clear both Raos are knowing the secrets of each other.

Be wise SV Rao

Mr. Singh, say - you are getting very less Salary or other benefits than your batch mate. Then what you will do ? Certainly you will not say that it is ok, as you are fighting for real benefit to be a JC or to get JC scale near soon . Instead of that you should throttle.

Yes, it is true for Association leader . If a simple colleague ask his leader that most of the people are getting no sensitive/price posting as per norms but some are getting price posting at random violating norms then the leader will address thir colleagues as comrade and warn them that there service is not secure and advice how to save their service .

harizon said...

SG of AICEIA, kindly give the reply of my above points ( i) to vi).
How you are telling –“we bid adieu” – It may be true for you and your Co.
Infact, it is also for the 11 Zones those who gave promotion earlier as per norms .
Moreover , the cader of that Zone has suffered for mainly for the kolkata
Zone those are or/and were misrepresenting/confusing the Roster .

One point :- With the help of contradictory OM dated 31.1.2005, the Kolkata Zone set aside the review dpc of 2004 and promptly started to give promotion maintaining the norms of effective date from 11.7.2002 as if they are very much Loyal.

But fun and joke is that the Kolkata Zone gave promotion about 441 Inspectors (to Supdt) for the year 2002-03(w.e.f 11.7.2002), but there were only 20 Sc Inspectors got promotion (to Supdt.) as reserve category. Who can explain it ? Kindly explain by SG of AICEIA as he is from Kolkata

Dear Comrades
For all those who talk about throwing mud on each other, i would like to clarify that if you have given your willingness to become a member of X Association and authorised your DDO to deduct subscription on the name of 'X' and handed over your authorisation to 'X' branch GS. The 'X' branch GS in violation CCS(RSA) Rules & against your willingness hands over the DDO certificate to 'Y' Association and the 'Y' applies to Ministry for recognition on the strength of 'X' DDO certificate.
If pointing out of the above irregularity is treated as mud throwing, I request any one dare to come out openly with your identity and debate the issue. Please do not make any comments without knowing the facts. if any one is interested please write to me to my email 'vig_raju@yahoo.co.in' I will send all the proof to the effect that the other man has done a cheating and fraud for his personal gain.

Bhagwan Singh said...

My dear Horizon

Good Morning and Sat Shri Akaal,

you do not appear to have taken my appeal to my broher Inspectors eschew fighting amongst ourselves in right and proper spirit. Nobody is being praised or defamed by that appeal; only point that is stressed is that instead of wasting our time and energy on internal fighting, we should address the real issue - the acute stagnation especially keeping in view the ongoing/under-way restructuring exercise.

However,my dear friend, there is scope for clarification from this end. U may kindly disclose your identity and talk to me on 09872703835 from your personal Mob no or mail me at "gillbs_887@rediffmail.com".

Hope that my appeal is taken in true and right spirit and everyone does his best to better the future prospects of our cadre.

awaiting from your response;

Lovingly yours

Bhagwan Singh,
Ludhiana, Punjab

arangavenu said...

I am happy that uniform allowance is doubled though we are fighting against the wearing of uniform. Though it is unfortunate that the order takes effects from 9/2009. Why it is not from 1.1.2006. Why the AICEIA is keeping silence. Kindly negotiate with Board and try to modify it to take effect from 1.1.2006. Eagerly awaiting your action.

arangavenu said...

What is latest development of restructuring ? Where the file is stagnating? Kindly publish the detailed developments soon.

harizon said...

Thank you Mr. Bhagwan Sing. I think you have realized something . I will converse with you but I am still awiting the reply from Secretary General ,AICEIA or General Secretary of AICEIA of Kolkata Zone .

Mr.P.Vigneshwar Rajguru, Spl. Convention to be held at your place where SG of AICEIA will be there . You should request for reply of the said points(which are very small points out of so many clumsy in each and every promotion order ) to SG what is/were going on Kolkata Zone for Promotion from Inspector to Superintendent .

Mr.arangavenue . I think Restructuring will suffer again as there are so many suppression, confusion in promotion order at Kolkata zone. Who are behind of this ? Kindly gone through the said points i) to vi) as sample for inquiry. Reply sought/awaiting from SG of AICEIA.

vengat said...

w.r.t. uniform allowance, the date of effect of uniform allowance is 1-9-08 and not 1-9-09. the reason is that all the allowances have been revised only w.e.f 1-9-08 i.e the date of notification of revised pay. and it is not specific to our department

arangavenu said...

icestea is very fast in publishing the matters reg. cadre restructuring. But aiceia is not updating the blog. What is the reason. It will demorilise our cadre member. Kindly keep in touch with member by updating the blog then and there.

RAM said...

can any one find the Central office bearers of AICEIA?

Ask PV Raju to whom the visit of SG & Co is a great news

BL Meena said...

Dear Ram
In my opinion a FIR may be lodged to find out Mr Roy & Co.

dharmender said...

dear raju,
how AICEIA got recognition in 2007, when Nagpur Federation was functioning and with their DDO Certificates, AICEIA got recognition.Can Kousik challenge this fact of back stabbing srinivas of nagpur. U donot know any thing and making ur self as a fool.
Dharmender Sinha

RAM said...

It is unpleasant to note the silence of the CEntarl office bearers for the past 21 days.

There are lot of burning issues like anamoly in 1992 batch Inpsectors, Cadre Restructure, Promotion to the cadre of Superintendents, improvement basic amenities to the officers at par with our counterparts in Income Tax.

But it seems they are happy with the self-proclaimed GS of Hyderabad unit and what not all.

It is not good to be silent as the members are equal just like the SG and president. They are no superior to other Inspectors. Let them understand

partha pratim said...

The blog has not been updated for the past two weeks. may we request the president or the SG to blog the latest position / picture of restructing as the whole cadre is eagerly awaiting for the same. Bijoya greetings to all of you.

Dear
Time has come to unite. Don't make janata dal out of our federation

S rayalu said...

We are all very haappy to that unifor allowance is doubled.
But is unifor required.
Is it not British leagasy? Is it not a terror symbol of british?
We changed proudly the timing of budget but not the uniform why?

arangavenu said...

Why u r anguish with icestea? they are fighting for the same cause i.e. for the welfare of inspectors community. they are not our enemy. while they are following up the cadre restructuring file, why not u? now, it is learnt that the cadre restructuring may delay for some more time i.e. upto march,2011? is it true?

N. BALRAJ said...

Comrade Arangavenu,
You,me,tom,dick and Hari are indian Citizens having unlimited freedom of speech & expression as we promptly do now but AICEIA and its office bearers are unfortunate elements that they are destined only to work and not to talk or write what they feel. They can only say or write what is authentic/official and mandated by the Rules/ members. Ofcourse I agree venu atleast ICESTEA does not have any such limitations.They can keep writing pages everyday but it is for the readers to verify its authenticity, No recognition rules dare enough to touch them. So let us keep hearing from them and be satisfied, (if for the time being). Let us keep patience. A day will come the AICEIA will proudly post the 'Sucess' in its blog.

BL Meena said...

Dear friends
Mr Balraj just has tried to defend faularity of Mr Roy & Co becoz there is no mention about present status any of our genuine demand or cadre restructuring.
RAISE YR VOICE AGAINST MR ROY & CO. WITHOUNT ANY HESITATION as they are bound to do the needful and to reply the colleauges.

JD said...

There is an old Chinese Proverb which says:
"Muddy water when wrongly stirred grows darker still...
when left alone, clears itself"

What amuses me is how most of us are venting our frustrations in our comments.

At least after so many years in the Dept and the never ending burden of stagnation, we should learn the art of diplomacy.

It is plain simple: If I have nothing to show, I keep silent. However if some thing good comes along the way, I promptly boast to the world that it has happened due to my silent efforts.

This is what AICEIA is doing.

There is nothing to show, so the silence.
And when something positive happens, even without any efforts from AICEIA, there will be a ten page article on this blog claiming self-credit.

There is a wind of change blowing in West Bengal and hopefully the same will happen in AICEIA too.

So all you colleagues out there, do not look to this place for information. Seek it around you and some from ICESTEA site.
Atleast there is some updated information there, even though it is one-man show there. Yet we can seek solace that one man is doing something and telling it to the world.
It is better than the bunch at AICEIA who are doing nothing, or doing it all wrong and keeping shut on the whole thing.

And a word of caution to all: Be wary of the Left politics being played by the AICEIA. We know what the outcome will be.
The mass will get nothing other than calls for agitation and strike. All actions will be negative, as a result of which what ever little positive is expected will also not come. And in the end, the only people who will prosper is the inner-circle.

JD, Mumbai.

rajaguru said...

The write up pf JD is very nice and analytic. I am sorry to point out that AICEIA is not active and not responsive. We are not able to get any useful and updated information from AICEIA website. The only one positive factor is that it has magnanimously allowed criticism. AICEIA should change the style of functioning.

Rakesh said...

I want to know the current status regarding ICT. I am falling under all india ranking system.

arangavenu said...

Dear Balraj, is it not my right to ask about the progress of cadre restructuring. I am also a member of AICEIA and not a member of ICESTEA. At this crucial juncture, each and every small happenings/developments at New Delhi is very very important to each and every member of AICEIA. Our blog is the only gateway to know about any progress. So, what is wrong in my question ? Dear comrade, kindly try understand the minds of the members who are struggling for the same cause and supporting AICIEA always.

BL Meena said...

Dear friends,
You all do as you wish, but Mr Roy & Co smiling thinking "commentators are fool & our style of working shall be remain unchanged i.e. our real victory"

After careful consideration I found Mr Roy as a man of adamant attitude that is why that since from 2nd CEC meeting (Jaipur) I raises my voice in commen interest and against attitude of Mr Roy & Co, but all in vain becoz I think most of the Association members are also equal responsible for the present situation.
Friends - I know that yr comments/views are based upon the voice of common members, but Mr Roy & Co is not bothering becoz they are busy in preparation of CONVENTION for interest of their near & dear, which will also result in similar game/situation.

Mr Roy & Co doing nothing that is why they are not publishing any efforts on our genuine demands or cadre restructuring.
At the end I request all the colleauges to first- they should raise voice against such elected office bearers, secondly - draw a strong line of action to achieve the justice/goal.
With regards
BL Meena, Inspr, Jaipur

Deshpande N.R. said...

We seem to have lost sight of our genuine demand of 5400 grade pay after completion of 4 years in the pay scale of pre-revised 7500. There is no mention of this issue in your circular. Has this issue been discussed at all? Kindly update.

RAM said...

It is a shock to note that Raju is updating the happenings in the federataion but the office bearers of the federataion are keeping silent.

So I request the Roy and Zachariah to modify the blogspot in such a way that when any one opens AICEIA blogspot, it is automatically redirected to Hyderabadcustoms's ie raju's blogspot.

I expect a speedy action, at least in this regard.

With regards

JD said...

I think a visit to icestea.com is required. It appears that AICEIA is in a panic mode, now that it appears that ICESTEA will be recognized soon.
Hence the silence from AICEIA.
Also it is learnt that ICESTEA has sent a written complain to DG-Vigilance agianst Mr Raju from Hyderabad. Any clarifications from Raju on this?

JD. Mumbai

RAM said...

Best way to evade critics - keep mum.

In some other web sites, some body is being promoted as SG.

All the best.

RAM said...

Kumar: We the Rajasthan members salute Vigneswara raju for his commendable job. If you do not get promotion in cadre restructuring, we want to see you as Sec.General

as posted in Hyderabadcustoms.blogspot.com

all the best.

It is not known what was the achievement? It is ok who bothers about achievements and solving issues.

BUt this is the fate of the Federation.

If i can start a blog or web site, i can also thinking of becoming as SG.

Of course India is a democratic country.

All the best

P.Vigneshwar Raju General Secretary said...

For all those critics- please see the latest information posted on hyderabadcustoms.blogspot.com.

RAM said...

Dear Raju

We are expecting the updates from the SG and President of the federation on the matters of concern for all india and not from the GS of a unit.

Further, it is clear what you have posted and how far it is relevant to the burning issues of the members.

Do not pose as yourself as a superman knowing everything.

It would be wise to post the matters from other wensites and dont claim it as an update.
