A delegation comprising of Com. Rananjay Pratap Singh, President, Com. Samiran Goswami, Organizing Secretary, Com. P. P Gupta, Joint Secretary, South Zone and the undersigned, visited Delhi to discuss various issues with top brass of CBIC & DoR, North Block, New Delhi.

On 14.03.2018, Com. Rananjay Pratap Singh, President visited CBIC, North Block and discussed various issues like feasibility of ICT, enactment of new Recruitment Rules for the post of Superintendent of Central Excise (CGST), action on DoPT OM dated 25.03.1996, non-conduct of DPC’s at various CCAs, inaction of CCAs like Vadodara on the directions given by CBIC etc. with Director, Ad.-II A & B, CBIC, New Delhi and requested him to take steps to minimize litigations on service matters. Com. Rananjay Pratap Singh, President also made efforts to meet Member (A), JS (A) & Commissioner (Co-ordination), CBIC, New Delhi but, due to their engagements outside North Block, meetings could not be held.

On 15.03.2018, the delegation of AICEIA visited various authorities at CBIC, North Block, New Delhi and made gentle but, effective reminders to the authorities like US, Ad.-II A and US, Ad. II B about the pending issues with them. Later, a meeting of the said Office-Bearers of AICEIA was also held with the Member (A), CBIC, Govt. of India. Resolution adopted in XXth Convention, Mumbai alongwith other communications were submitted. We discussed various issues like feasibility of ICT, enactment of new Recruitment Rules for the post of Superintendent of Central Excise (CGST), action on DoPT OM dated 25.03.1996, non-conduct of DPC’s at various CCAs, inaction of CCAs like Vadodara on the directions given by CBIC etc. and requested Member (A), CBIC, GoI to take steps to minimize litigations on service matters. Member (A), CBIC, GoI was kind enough to give us patient hearing and responded in affirmative on almost all the issues and assured to take necessary steps. Regarding ICT, initially the Member (A), CBIC, GoI opposed our submission due to non-insertion of provision of ICT in new RR but, later due to our vigorous persuasion, he agreed to find out legal backing for continuation of current procedure of ICT. We requested the Member (A), CBIC, GoI to convene a minuted meeting with AICEIA which was accepted by him.

On the same day, due to good liaising, Com. Rananjay Pratap Singh, President could get time from Shri Mahesh Tiwari, PS to MoS (Finance), DoR, GoI and Shri Niraj Verma, OSD to MoS (Finance), DoR, GoI and discussed several issues relating to welfare of Cadre at large with an emphasis to minimize the litigations on service matters. Com. Rananjay Pratap Singh, President has been assured for an appointment with MoS (Finance), DoR, GoI very soon. AICEIA looks forward to avail this opportunity for discussing the grievances of the Cadre.

On 16.03.2018, the delegation visited the office of DGHRD at Veer Singh Marg & Saket and discussed issues relating to welfare of Cadre at large. The delegation may be invited by ADG, HRM very soon for further discussions. 

Long live unity, long live AICEIA!
Yours fraternally,
