Dated 17.11.2012

The Joint Action Committee has called for observance of  a Protest Week from 19th to 23rd of November’12, in all offices of Central Excise, Customs and Service Tax across India and reports being received from all corners of the country indicate that preparations are on in full swing to make the programme a huge success.

Meanwhile the Central Excise Superintendents’ Association [AIACEGEO] has unilaterally announced on 16.11.2012 that it is withdrawing from this agitation. In the meeting at Chennai on 08.10.2012 the Superintendents’ Association and JAC had  chalked out the Agitation Programme with mutual understanding that the same would be conducted jointly, and since the Superintendents’ Association had certain reservations on a couple of Demands in the JAC Charter, they would have an independent Charter of Demands. All suggestions put forth by the Superintendents’ Association were accommodated in the JAC programme and correspondence, and co-operation in every possible manner was extended to them in our attempt to foster a spirit of unity and solidarity among all deprived cadres in the CBEC.  It is unfortunate that at the eleventh hour, without consulting the JAC or even informing any of us, the  Central Excise Superintendents’ Association has backtracked and called off the agitation. However it is heartening to note that some regional formations of the Superintendents’ Association have informed that they would be participating in the JAC programme.

Certain vested interests are spreading rumours  that the  JAC too has withdrawn the call to observe the Protest Week. Kindly lend no credence to these. After detailed consultations among constituents of the JAC, it is clarified that our agitation is on, and all Group B and Group C officers and staff of the CBEC [Executive and Ministerial, Gazetted and Non-Gazetted, from both the Customs and Excise sides] are exhorted to actively and whole heartedly participate in this Agitation Programme in overwhelming numbers to unequivocally convey to the Board and the Government that we will no longer continue to silently suffer the ignominies heaped on us.
