BANGALORE: Assuring officers of the Indian Revenue Service that their long standing demand for Cadre Review, V Narayanasamy, Union Minister of State for DoPT, PMO and Parliament Affairs on Friday said, “Within a fortnight cadre review will be finalised with the PMO’s approval. The government will safeguard your interests.” He was addressing the inaugural session of the All India Convention of the Indian Revenue Service Association.
Placing the blame for the inordinate delay in cadre review on the association, Narayanasamy said that the association must take the initiative and put pressure on the government. “For 10 years no initiative was taken. The fault is in your part,” he said. Praising the service, he went on to add that the Food Security Bill would require expenses of `86,000 crore and these were calculated by the government based on generation by the IRS. The service, so far has seen only four cadre reviews between 1975 to 2000 and DoPT guidelines state that cadre review is a must every five years. He said that in HAG+ category where the second category had to report to the first, the government is working out a system where seniority will be maintained. “Middle-level officers will be given more than what you asked for. I will be meeting Finance Secretary and chairman of CBDT next week to finalise additional posts for middle-level,” he said. He also announced that the CBDT chairman would now have a fixed tenure instead of a period of three months which will allow the incumbent to focus on major issues like pay scales and cadre reviews. In a lighter vein, the minister also said that IRS would have to look at increasing its expected collection from  Rs 5,32,000 crore to Rs 6,00,000 crore after the cadre review decisions were made.

UPDATE ON SOME IMPORTANT ISSUES:

Posted by Secretary General on 6:57 AM with 1 comment


Recently S.G and President paid a visit to North Block and other important offices of New Delhi.
After several discussion with various officials viz: Chairman, Member(P&V), J.S.(Admn.) of C.B.E.C & Additional Secretary D.O.P&T , D.G. & A.D.G (H.R.D & H.R.M) we would like to place the following statement for information of our members:
  • Restructuring file has not yet sent back to our Board,
  • Several rounds of discussion going on amongst D.O.P&T, C.B.E.C and Deptt of Revenue.
  • As assured by HRM the file would come back to C.B.E.C for finalization of cabinet note by the end of this month.
  • There is a fair chance of reduction of Gr. ‘A’ post as D.O.P&T deals with right sizing of Gr. ‘A’ strength in a restructuring of a particular department.
  • Reduction of Gr.’B’ post from the proposed strength was  ruled out by the above officials.

      On the serious issue of Senior drawing less pay than Juniors the following steps have been taken recently::
  • fished out the file from D.O.P& T
  • After a hell bent discussion with Director D.O.P&T sent it back to Expenditure
  • Had meeting with director D.O.P&T & Director (EIII) along with Under Secretary ( EIIIA) Expenditure and successfully convinced them to delink the two pending issues and to instruct department of Revenue and C.B.E.C to issue order for fixation of seniors drawing less pay than juniors in relation to pay of Rs, 17,140 of Direct recruits from 01.01.2006.
  • The other part in relation to fixation of pay on par with pre-revised payscale of Rs. 7450/- has become a general issue and D.O.P&T instructed the Expenditure Ministry to take its decision taking in to consideration its ramification on national exchequer and Government.
  • Though Expenditure appears to be not very keen in granting the required fixation of pay on par with pre-revised payscale of Rs. 7450/-, yet, we are hopeful as almost all departments inclusive of C.B.D.T have initiated  their representation on this issue.
         On the issue of ICT it was intimated to Board officials that Chief Commissioners of different field formations are fixing their own criteria in granting I.C.T and it is learnt that depending upon the representation of our Association, the point in relation to abolition of the term ‘probationary period’ is under strong consideration of board along with various other points on this issue.

CIRCULAR- 01/12
Dear Comrades,

Wish you a happy and prosperous new year 2012.


    As you are aware, the 1st CEC of the AICEIA after the 16th Convention is going to be held at Hyderabad on 27th and 28th of January, 2012.  I appreciate the initiative taken by our Hyderabad Branch for hosting an all India Meeting.
  
 In our previous all India meetings we have decided to resolve various issues and before the commencement of next meeting also we hope to do as much as possible.            XVI Convention at Bengaluru also proved to be successful on that count.  The following important issues were proved to be successful on which we also placed our hands during last six months:
·        To resolve the ratio issue for promotion to the grade of Assistant Commissioner;
·        Inter Commissionerate transfer;
·        PFRDA bill
We know that our members have their valuable opinion in this regard.  Hence we invite detailed discussion and like to chalk out probable resolvable correction on these issues after taking it threadbare in the Unit/Branch/Circle level.  You all are aware of the fact that AICEIA supported and participated in the Parliament rally held on 25.11.2011 and subsequently it was found that that the PFRDA bill could not be tabled in the Parliament succumbing to the protest from the working class.

We invite your esteemed opinion on the following issues too:
1.     Minimum fixation after correction of GP from Rs. 4200/- to Rs. 4600/- should be implemented forthwith.
2.     Inspectors up to 2002 batch should be promoted in this restructuring throughout India.
3.     Demand for taking base-cadre seniority for promotions to Gr.A to bring parity with analogous cadres.
4.     Regional disparities for promotions in the grade of Inspector to Superintendent should be wiped off.
5.     Superintendents’ GP should be made Rs.5,400/-.
6.     Anomally in the case of MACP after the GP of Rs.5,400/-.
7.     All India Strike call given by the Steering committee of Central and State government Workers on 28th February 2011 on the following agenda:

·         No Contractorisatlon of work of permanent/perennial nature and payment of wages and benefits to the contract workers at  the same rate as available to the regular workers of the Industry/establishment.
·          Amendment   of  Minimum   Wages   Act   to   ensure   universal  coverage irrespective of the schedules and fixation of statutory minimum wage at
not less than Rs.10,000/-.

It was learnt that in Chennai day before yesterday our colleagues asked FM about the fate of CR. It was assured that the file would be cleared by this financial year.
