Shimla Meeting of the AICEIA CEC, update on CR

Posted by Secretary General on 8/01/2013 12:10:00 PM with No comments
The first meeting of the present  Central Executive  Committee of the All India Central Excise Inspectors’ Association was held at Shimla on 27th and 28th of July 2013. AICEIA wholeheartedly thanks the host unit – the Chandigarh Circle of the AICEIA - for the excellent arrangements.

All issues concerning the cadre were discussed at length in the meeting, and several decisions taken on the course to be charted by the Association in the days to come, and some Committees have been formed to deal with specific sectors. Details will be posted here very soon.

Prior to the CEC meet and for a couple of days after that, the  Central office bearers were at Delhi, meeting Board officials and influential government functionaries. The DGHRD has informed that the date for meeting by the Committee of Secretaries for taking a decision on the CBEC’s CR proposals has not been fixed yet, but the matter is being pursued continuously with DoP&T and the Cabinet Secretariat at the highest level. 

Fresh representations have been submitted to the Board demanding promotion of Inspectors who have completed the residency period, and casting of All India Seniority List of Inspectors, even as we  reiterate the organisational desiderata of time bound promotions and parity in promotions among the three feeder cadres. AICEIA  has been assured that at least in the  Restructuring exercise, stagnation and regional disparities in promotion from Inspector to Superintendent will be done away with.   

Yet unresolved issues like denial of MACP benefits to certain classes of officers  among Inspectors, and delay in allowing to all Inspectors the  benefit of  entry level pay stipulated for direct recruit Inspectors have been taken up again in the concerned sections of the Board office, and copies of certain documents not available with them were provided.
