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.
