                Wishing all the members of AICEIA, their family and friends, a very happy, prosperous, peaceful, healthy and successful New Year. A new committee has been formed at the XVIIth AICEIA Convention in Patna with the support of delegates from all across the country. The responses and resolutions from each and every Circle were a guiding force to the newly formed comittee and work has already started in the decided direction, immediately after the Convention. A letter has already been sent to the Finance Minister of the country with a copy to the Revenue Secretary to intervene into issues like Cadre Restructuring and Stagnation. A meeting was convened by DG (HRD) to discuss the existing welfare measures, suggest new measures and ways and means to make the cadre aware of such Welfare Schemes. Very soon we will be submitting the amended Constitution and the Resolutions taken in our Patna Convention to the Board. Several messages have been received by me and other office bearers from members hailing from different parts of the country. I take this opportunity to thank each and every member of AICEIA for their support and look forward for suggestions, discussions and communications from one and all. As is agreed by all, we are standing at a crucial junction with issues like Stagnation, Upgradation, Cadre Restructuring, GST, regional disparity, ICT, base cadre seniority, and many others. We have also decided to actively pursue the legal battle for notional fixation w.e.f 1.1.1996 and grant of GP of 5400. Most of these issues have been thoroughly discussed and minuted in our convention. Perhaps some issues which required more deliberations could not be done, mainly due to time constraints. Each and every member is requested to share and communicate their views and opinions through their zonal/circle committees. Let us all resolve together to stay united and bring to the fore even those who are not yet members of AICEIA. Many of our esteemed delegates have vowed to bring in more DDO certificates and collect more funds both of which are vital for the strength of our organisation. In this regard the Constitution of AICEIA has been amended to increase the membership fee from Rs. 40/- to Rs. 60/- per month w.e.f. 1.4.2013. A stronger organisation would strenghten our morale and send stronger signals in the corridors of North Block and other such places of power that are time and again turning a deaf ear to many of our grievances and genuine demands. Our predecessors have done an excellent job in forming this organization and strengthening it. They have started a journey and we have to continue it gathering more force, more momentum and more vigour; this in spite of reports that the members are understandably de-motivated and their morale is at an all time low. It should be our combined endeavour to motivate all and our efforts should solely be towards the benefit of the cadre in general. I strongly believe that the darkest hour is just before dawn. Once again wishing one and all A Very Happy New Year. 
--A.Satish, President, AICEIA
