CIRCULAR  02/2013 
Dated 15.02.2013

I.                    Central Excise Day Boycott
 AICEIA has given a call to boycott all celebrations to be held in connection with the Central Excise Day 2013. Notice in this respect has already been served to the Chairperson CBEC (copy annexed). Similar notices may please be served immediately by AICEIA Circle/Branch Secretaries to respective Chief Commissioners / Commissioners, if not already done.

All office bearers should actively canvass support for this Boycott to ensure that none from our cadre is forced or lured by the authorities to participate in the Central Excise Day programmes.

II.                   Greivance Redressal Mechanism Meetings
Meetings for Redressal of Grievances have to be conducted regularly  at Zonal and Commissionerate levels. If this is not being followed in any formation the Branch Secretary/ Circle Secretary  concerned should immediately take up the matter with the officers  responsible for convening such meetings and get the same held regularly. It should be insisted that minutes of such meetings be issued expeditiously,   recording all deliberations that transpire in the said meetings, decisions taken,  and differences arising between the staff side and official side, if any, to enable proper follow-up at higher levels, on those issues on which it is required.

III.                Enhanced Monthly Membership Subscription from April’13
      It is reminded that among the important decisions taken at  the Patna  Convention (Dec’12) was      that wef 01.04.2013 the AICEIA  monthly membership subscription amount would be Rs 60/-, one-third of which would be payable to the Central Body of the Association, and our Constitution was duly amended accordingly.  Please do all necessary preparations  for effecting collection from members’ salaries at the appropriate rate, and inform all DDOs accordingly well in advance and please keep reminding them to do the  needful to avoid  any inconvenience on this count in future. A suggestion in this regard is that for operational  and accounting convenience, collection for  a period of 12 months together  can be done in JULY of each year, and any new or left out members can be covered by a supplementary exercise in the following JANUARY.

IV.               DDO Certificates
All Circle/Branch Secretaries should go all out to mobilize members, enhance membership and collect DDO Certificates (only all those units who have not yet submitted DDO Certificates issued during or after October’12 ) and forward those to the Secretary General  immediately.

V.                  Strengthening Organisation
All India office bearers are requested to undertake  tours  and hold meetings with members even in the remotest locations in their respective regions to strengthen the grassroots level Organisation so that movements can be conducted in the coming days more effectively and cohesively pan-India.
