Updates on Various Issues

Posted by Secretary General on 9/19/2017 12:29:00 PM with No comments
A delegation comprising of Com. Anupam Neeraj, President, Com. Rananjay Pratap Singh, Liaison Secretary and the undersigned, visited Delhi & Mumbai to attend a series of official & organizational meetings on various issues.

On 14.09.2017, a meeting of Joint Action Committee (JAC) of all three Inspector-based Associations of CBEC [i.e. AICEIA, AIACEGEO and IRS (IDT) OA] was held at New Maharashtra Sadan, New Delhi, where various career related issues and pay related matters were discussed and joint memorandums were finalised. Later in the afternoon, the delegates of all these three Associations of the JAC visited Sh. Pon Radhakrishnan, Minister of State (Revenue), Ministry of Finance, Govt. of India at his residence at 16, Talkatora Road, New Delhi.  The meeting was held in a very cordial atmosphere. The Office-Bearers of Associations apprised the MoS about their views regarding smooth implementation of GST & also intimated him about the expectations of Cadre in GST.  The MoS assured of all possible measures for successful augmentation of GST and taking care of concerns of Cadre in GST. 

On 15.09.2017, the delegation of AICEIA separately visited various authorities at CBEC, North Block, New Delhi and reminded the authorities about the pending issues with them.  Further, a meeting of the Office-Bearers of JAC was also held with the Member (A), CBEC, Govt. of India.  Dear comrades, due to non-supply of information on ICT by various Branches of AICEIA on time, the delegation could not apprise the authorities about ICT issue in full details.  The facts, figures and comments of the Branches might have helped the delegation more in its endeavour but, it is really unfortunate, disheartening & disappointing that most of the Branches failed to supply the requisite data on time. Only Kerala, Rajkot, Hyderabad, Guntur, Shillong and Aurangabad Circle/Branches supplied us the data on time.

It is also pertinent to mention here that now the CBEC, as evident from the experience of its working style will call for these data from the CCAs which will not only delay the process but also give emphasis on the views of authority. We here again request our Circles and Branches to compile the data fast and also keep watch on the submissions of the concerned CCAs, if they are asked for by the CBEC.  Despite all  these hurdles, the All India Body is trying its best to get this issue resolved as early as possible.

Further, as decided vide Circular No. 01/2017 dated 05.09.2017 of the COC,  the 2nd  meeting of the Coordination Committee of Associations in the CBIC was held on 16.09.2017 at New Customs House, Ballard Estate, Mumbai.  Com. Abhishek Singh, J. S. (West) and Com. Amit Kumar Jain, President, AICEIA Mumbai Circle also participated in the meeting.  Total 43 delegates from thirteen Associations representing Group A, B & C staffs of CBIC participated in the meeting and it was unanimously decided to observe "DEMANDS DAY" on 04.10.2017 by holding lunch-hour meetings in all Headquarters offices and thereafter submitting the Charter of Demands to various Authorities, by the units of the Organisations and their All India Bodies, to be followed up by sending of the Charter of Demands by the individual members to all concerned authorities through various channels eg. twitter, whatsapp, mails, local press etc. We hereby appeal all our branches/circles to meet all the participating associations at branch/circle level and start preparing for the Demand Day right now, as we have little time in our hand.
