MEETING WITH MEMBER INCONCLUSIVE…..

Posted by Secretary General on 7:44 PM with 2 comments


JAC leaders met the Member (P&V) at her chamber as scheduled.  Meeting took place in a very serious atmosphere with a 14-member delegation of JAC on one side and a 7-member official side including DGHRD and Director.  Madam admitted problems with the DOPT in approving the CR proposals in the present form.  The JAC insisted for the status and shape of the present proposals and also the feedback for the memorandum submitted on 25.1.2011.   Our Association represented by the President and the SG reiterated our demands for at least three functional promotions up to JC level and actions to remove regional disparity by creating all-India seniority for Inspectors.  After heated and prolonged discussions, the Member borrowed more time to revert back to us.  We have set a deadline of 2nd week of April in writing.  A communication on the same lines was sent to the Hon’ble FM with a copy to Secretary, DOPT. 
Other issues taken up during the visit:
1.       Ratio to the promotion to Gr.A level:
 The application filed by the Board to review the retrospective effect for the new ratio for promotions to the grade of Gr.A officers, is coming up before the Hon’ble SC on 30.3.2012.  Though it is evident that our Board is backing the interests of Customs Appraisers, justice would be meted out by the apex court.   
2.       Pending issues on ICT:  
As regards ICT, another representation dt.23.3.2012 was given to the Chairman, CBEC which is reproduced here.   Necessary follow up action has to be done in this regard vigorously for which affected Circles should also act to pursue the CCAs to represent to the Board.
3.       Notional fixation of pay w.e.f. 1.1.1996:
Department of Expenditure was contacted for the status of Judgment of Hon’ble CAT, Mumbai Bench.  No decision has yet been taken on the same though an appeal is a certainty.   Meanwhile we are also going ahead with an application before same Bench for a similar relief.
4.       Fixation of 7450 basic pay:
DoE was contacted over this issue and they are waiting for further instructions from the DOPT to settle the issue amicably.
5.       Unified GPF account No.:
It is confirmed that the office of the CGA has already initiated steps for development of a web based centralized GPF Accounting System on outsourced basis through NIC.



Latest on ICT


Ref. No. AICIEA/CBEC/95/2012                                                                      Dated:  23.3.2012.

To
Sri S.K.Goel
Chairman, CBEC,
North Block,New Delhi.

Sir,
                          Subject:  Denial of benefit after lifting of ban on ICT.

          Kind attention is invited to the Board’s letter F.No.A22015/23/2011-Ad.III.A dt.27.10.2011 lifting the ban on Inter Commissionerate Transfer which was in vogue since 19.2.2004.  The Association vide letter dt.24.11.2011 has pointed out certain areas of concern like consideration of applications of transferees who are on probation, repatriation of officers under deputation etc. which are yet to get the active consideration of the Board.

2.       It is also matter of grave concern that many cadre controlling authorities are not forwarding the applications of transfer seekers on the grounds that there are shortages of Inspectors.   Needless to emphasise, it is the duty of the responsible administration to get the post of Inspectors filled through DR and promotion as and when the vacancy arises.   It may be noted that only after much persuasion, the ban on ICT which was in effect for more than 7 years, has been lifted and in order to get the benefit out of it, there should be a uniform policy amongst the CCAs to consider the applications for ICT received by them.  It is noticed that the situations at Chennai  and Kerala zones are acute and the officers, who are far away from their home, are highly disturbed  as their applications on genuine grounds are not being considered, when their junior colleagues in other zones are getting ICT based on the Board’s letter dt.27.10.2011.

3.      View above, it is requested that instructions may kindly be issued immediately to all the CCAs to have a uniform policy to consider all the applications received for ICT so that no Inspector is deprived of his legitimate right in getting the ICT in time. Passionately we would like to request you that all the pending points raised in the Association’s letter dt.24.11.2011 like probation period and repatriation may kindly be cleared without further delay.
                                                                    Yours faithfully,

    (Kousik Roy)

LETTER dt.12.3.2012 TO THE SG, AIACEGO.

Posted by Secretary General on 10:28 AM with 1 comment

To

Shri Ravi Malik,
Secretary General,
AIACEGO,
New Delhi.

Sir,

Information received from reliable sources reveal that there is going to be a 30% cut in Group – A post, from the proposal made by the Board. It is apprehended that the proposal for creation of Audit Commissionerates would be abolished. In the present situation, promotion chances to the entry level of Class – I is going tobe  reduced substantially by virtue of which the stagnation in the grade of Superintendent of CEX will remain as such and may further aggravate.   Acceptance of present format of CR may cause great loss in the career progression. At this crucial juncture it is imperative to fight together. Hence I earnestly appeal to you to join / support the agitation call given by the Joint Action Committee under CBEC.  You are also requested to give suggestions in this matter so that a sustainable fight/agitation could be launched. After the agitation program on 16th March 2012, as per your convenience, you may call a joint meeting with me and other leaders of JAC at any place decide by you for discussion in this matter.

Sincerely yours,

Kousik Roy
Kolkata,
Dated: 12.3.2012.
