A Word of Caution

Posted by Secretary General on 4/28/2014 02:11:00 PM with No comments
It has been brought to our notice that certain outfits  impersonating as Branches/Circles/Units of the All India Central Excise Inspectors' Association are using the emblem, recognition details and other distinctive information/insignia of our Association and using them fraudulently on letterheads to correspond with the CBEC/ Ministry/ Govt. masquerading as representing/being  the AICEIA or Regional Units of the AICEIA. It is also reported that a few individuals/groups of individuals having no connection whatsoever with the AICEIA have  been collecting money/ contributions/membership subscriptions from Inspectors of Central Excise of a few Commissionerates. While  normally we would have ignored such devious elements with the contempt they deserve, at this crucial time for the cadre we have no option but to warn such elements that if such activities do not stop forthwith, AICEIA would not hesitate to lodge complaints in appropriate fora, and also initiate action as per law for fraud and impersonation. Confusion created by spreading of malicious rumours and submission of representations to the Board/ Ministry or other authorities  by persons not authorised to do so, often containing  false and misleading information will not be tolerated any longer, especially in view of the enormous damage  done earlier  by such unscrupulous elements' unauthorised activities.

Attention of all concerned  is also invited to Board's Instructions stating that all communication with the CBEC or Ministry by Staff Associations have to be necessarily done only by their National Bodies and that it is mandatory that any correspondence from their regional/local  formations/units have to be routed through the National Hqrs of the concerned Association for those to be  even considered. Violation of this will invite disciplinary action against the offending individuals/units  of the AICEIA, and the Board will also be requested not to entertain those and to take necessary action against those making such communication flouting Government regulations.

We exhort all Inspectors of Central Excise all across the country to unite and strengthen the hands of the AICEIA to ensure bringing in an era of equity among us first, and conditions where we can work with self-respect and dignity,  and be assured of just and reasonable  career advancement prospects for each one of us.  Kindly do not give credence to rumours being spread with malicious intent, and do not give in to threats or inducements of any kind from any quarters, and indulge in any acts which would sow seeds of mistrust and disunity within the cadre, and would cause only detriment to overall interests of the fraternity in the longer run.
