Dear Comrades,

In continuation of the efforts made by the All India Associations of Superintendent and Inspector of Central Excise, Customs & S. Tax, a joint meeting of the leaders of All India Associations of Minsterial, Sepoys, Inspector & Superintendent cadres was held at New Delhi on 05.04.2011. Unfortunately on 6th of April 2011 at New Delhi Central Excise Ministerial Association declined to go for agitation.
However, with other organizations it was agreed that the common agenda for all the associations is restructuring and the agitation programme will be taken up in a phased manner which will start from 20th April, 2011 culminating to one day mass casual leave on 27th of May; the next phase of action will be a huge parliament rally at the time of Badal session of the parliament.
At this point the major chunk of the CBEC which includes nearly Thirty (30) thousand employees altogether, i.e. Inspectors and Superintendents of Central Excise chalked out the following agenda points and decided to add one more day in the list of the agitation programme i.e. 6th of May, on that date at least 2000 Inspectors and Superintendents of Central Excise shall go for whole day fasting in front of Jantar Mantar.
