Condolences

Posted by Secretary General on 11:48 AM with 3 comments
Our Advisor Com.Kousik Roy lost his father this morning. The demise happened in Kolkata following a brief illness. Com Kousik Roy had lost his mother too just a few months earlier.
AICEIA offers its deepest condolences to the bereaved family in this hour of grief.

Meetings under the Joint Consultative Machinery or Grievance Redressal Mechanism are being held in most Commissionerates.  It is suggested that  in those Zones/Commissionerates where such meeetings are not being held regularly, the matter may be taken up with the Commissioners/Chief Commissioners by the AICEIA Branches/Circles, preferably in co-ordination with other Associations. Points should be sponsored for discussion in such meetings after careful consideration, and necessary follow-up too should be done on the various decisions/ assurances that are made/ given in the course of the meetings. 

As regards crucial issues, it is felt that we need not wait for JCM or any other forum to take them up before appropriate authorities. Such an instance came to light  in Mumbai recently. One of our offices at Dharavi was in a dilapidated condition, and posed serious risk of injury to personnel working there. This was pointed out specifically to the jurisdictional Commissioner by the AICEIA Mumbai Circle General Secretary Com Shishir K Agnihotri and President Com Chandra Bhushan during the course of a meeting. However, as usually happens, no action was taken on it. Ultimately an accident occurred - a portion of the roof of that building fell on an Inspector, and he suffered some serious injuries, which fortunately were not were not critical. Thereafter, the said office bearers of AICEIA Mumbai Circle  took up the matter strongly again with the jurisdictional Commissioner and  Chief Commissioner, who visited the spot, and necessary directions have since been issued for repairing the building forthwith. The point that is being sought to be made here is that we often have to work in hazardous conditions, sometimes facing threat to life and limb. We need to be proactive about this, and we must repeatedly submit written complaints regarding such conditions, and non-availability of essential amenities in our workplaces, not waiting for any mishap to happen.

JAC UPDATE & FEDERATION WITH SUPDT.ASSN.

Posted by Secretary General on 11:24 AM with No comments

The National Convention of the JAC (Joint Action Committee) of the Staff Associations in CBEC was held at Chennai on 08.10.2012. Representatives of Associations of Customs Ministerial, Customs Group C, Central Excise Inspectors, Central Excise & Service Tax Ministerial Officers, Telecom. and Central Excise Group C (Executive)  along with office bearers of the   Central Excise Superintendents’ Association  attended the meeting . The situation consequent to the agitation on 26th September, 2012 was reviewed, and it was decided to intensify our joint agitation programme by observing a Protest Week from 19.11.2012 to 23.11.2012 with all members of the participating Associations wearing black badges on all these days and holding demonstrations before the Zonal/ Commissionerate/Division offices during the lunch break.  On 23.11.2012 no work would be done after the protest meeting, i.e.  a “total pen down”  shall be observed  in the afternoon on  that day.
Secretary General of AICEIA was unanimously chosen to be the new Joint Convenor  of the JAC  from the Central Excise side since Com Kousik Roy, consequent to  his promotion as Superintendent,  expressed his desire to step down from that position.  
The Secretary General of the Superintendents’ Association and the President and Secretary General of Inspectors’ Association also had a  meeting over the AICEIA’s proposal to form a Federation of both the Associations. It has been agreed that during mid- December the same will be given a formal shape on mutually agreed terms.   In the interim the All India office bearers of both the Associations will work in co-ordination with each other to facilitate formation of the Federation and both the Secretaries General would act as Joint Convenors of the common forum till then.  It was also decided that the office bearers of both the associations at the field level would form a common platform for an easy synchronization and formation of a federation in December 2012.
Information on disposition of Inspectors in different Cadre Control Zones per their  length of service  has been received so far from Mumbai, Karnataka, Kerala and Lucknow only.  All other Circle/Unit Secretaries are requested once again to immediately furnish data for their respective Zones in the format appended to the blogpost dated   6th October 2012. It is clarified that the date of joining in the grade as Inspector is to be reckoned for calculating the numbers to be reflected in the Table.
