From all accounts, Inspectors and also staff and officers from other cadres of the CBEC participated in the 26.09.2012 Agitation in huge numbers at scores of  Central Excise and Customs offices all across the country. In Punjab, West Bengal, Kerala, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Karnataka, Gujarat, the North East, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and other states the Agitation has been a great success. Very satisfying is the fact that Inspectors from Delhi and Mumbai participated actively and spontaneously in this programme, thanks to the initiative taken by the leadership at the two places.
Thanks are due to Com Jayaseelan C, General Secretary, Karnataka Circle of the AICEIA for putting together the above collage.
The AICEIA has again written to the CBEC on the need to urgently resolve issues concerning transfer of Inspectors from one Cadre Control Zone to another, and also on matters relating to DPCs, also highlighting the fact that the DPC exercise for effecting promotion of Inspectors to Superintendents against vacancies arising out of recent promotions of Superintendents as ACs has not yet been undertaken in Mumbai and Shillong . These and other most important issues like steps required to address the acute stagnation that  Inspectors in most  Zones face shall be shortly taken up with the CBEC at the top level by the AICEIA office bearers.
The next Convention of the AICEIA will be held at Patna on 16th and 17th of  December 2012. Delegates may make travel arrangements accordingly. Notice in this respect shall be issued soon.

September 26, 2012 : UNITY IS STRENGTH

Posted by Secretary General on 8:47 PM with 1 comment
Today's Agitation has been a resounding success, and undoubtedly an important milestone for the organisational movement in the CBEC. We owe this success primarily to the UNITY forged between all constituents of the Joint Action Committee, the Central Excise Superintendents' Association and all other organisations who have finally joined hands with one another.

Reports of spontaneous  participation in overwhelming numbers cutting across all cadres are pouring in from all parts of the country.
More details will be posted soon.

AICEIA thanks and salutes the thousands whose active response to this Agitation call has made it the massive success it has been.

However, our struggle is far from over, Comrades.......it promises to be a long and hard road ahead, but if we continue to demonstrate this sagacity and spirit of accommodation, we will certainly be able to bring to fruition our longstanding career aspirations.

It is requested that from all the centres where protest meetings were held today, the Savingram suggested by the JAC (draft appended below) may be sent to the Revenue Secretary and Chairperson, CBEC immediately, in separate envelopes, by Speed Post, if not sent already.

Comrades,

Please go all out to make the Agitation on 26th September'12 a huge success. We have to make our collective  voice heard to get our just demands conceded by the Government.

On the call of the Joint Action Committee of Associations in the CBEC and the Superintendents' Association, each one of us  has to wear a black badge, observe a daylong fast and participate in a protest meeting during the lunch break on 26.09.12 in support of our Charters of  Demands. 

AICEIA  office bearers should kindly co-ordinate at regional and local levels  with the Associations of Superintendents, Ministerial Officers, Drivers, Sepoys and Hawaldars, Telecommunication Staff and all others to make the programme a massive success.

Meetings during Lunch break must be held jointly, and the following savingram suggested by the JAC should be sent to both the Revenue Secretary  as well as the Chairperson CBEC in separate envelopes by Speed Post  to effectively register our  just and collective protest at the appropriate level.

 

Long Live JAC. Long Live Our UNITY.

During lunch break, meetings should be held at all Hqrs offices – Commissioners’ and Chief Commissioners’ offices, and also at other locations/ lower formations too like  Division Offices. Co-ordination   Committees may be formed with office bearers of other Associations participating in the JAC, which now Includes Associations  from both Customs and Excise sides representing Superintendents, Ministerial Officers, Gr C Executive (Sepoys, Drivers, Hawaldars etc.) and Telecommunication Staff, apart from us Inspectors. Notices may be served well in advance to all Chief Commissioners and Commissioners and Divisional Heads etc. by the respective Circle Secretaries and Branch/Unit Secretaries  regarding the Protest Programme. The Notice served to Revenue Secretary by the Joint Convenors of the JAC is enclosed. Wherever possible similar joint notices may be   served signed by Representatives of all Associations, or even those available. If joint notices with other Associations is getting delayed then notices may be served signed  by our Circle Secretaries and Branch/Unit Secretaries.

7. To demand immediate sanction of more posts especially of Superintendents and Inspectors for Service Tax work, which has increased by leaps and bounds, and which in view of the acute staff shortage is causing extreme hardship by work overburden on the available officers.
