Dear Comrades,







       We had an excellent session at Ahmedabad. Thanks to the leaders and delegates, who have taken pain to join the session.  Ahmedabad unit has put in their best to make the stay comfortable and there was no lacunae in the part of hospitality. Problems have been heard, discussed and resolution taken for the probable ways to get the solution.  It is understood that some zones do not have strong team to take up the issues with the authority. National leaders have assured to extend support to make strong association in those zones, which is the need of the hour.  Once again, I express my gratitude to all those who have contributed their best, whether physically or financially, directly or indirectly, to make the Gujarat convention and National meeting very very 'successful'.

   In the meantime, Board has issued a letter on 20th Jan, 2016 enclosing a list of 288 A.O.s name whose complete documents/information are required for convening the DPC for promotion to the post of Chief Accounts Officer.  (Board letter is linked herewith - click on Letter & Annexure).  Zonal leaders are requested to follow up in their respective zones to send the documents/information to the Board immediately.

   The emergency meeting of the all India Association and 1st Convention of the Gujarat Unit, held on 23rd January, 2016 in Ahmedabad turned out to be a grand success.  Delegates from all over the country took part.  The meeting was inaugurated by Hon’ble Chief guest Dr. Manoj Kumar Rajak, IRS, Addl.

4. Promotion to the post of CAO and Seniority List of Administrative Officer.
5.One Time Relaxation for promotion to various grades on the basis of existing RRs.

       The delegates resolved to go even to the extent of agitation to pursue to the above issues.  Simultaneously legal options on the issue of Recruitment Rules of EA & TA would also be explored.  To start with appointment would be sought with the Revenue Secretary to ventilate our grievance and disparity that exists on various fronts between CBDT and CBEC, particularly the matter of Pay structure and Recruitment Rules.

      It was also a matter of great satisfaction that different Commissionerates located in various parts of Gujarat came together for the sake of unity and formed an all Gujarat State Committee, covering the entire State of Gujarat and union territory of Dadra, Daman & Diu.  Shri Vikash Kumar Gupta was selected unanimously as General Secretary of all Gujarat Committee.  The details of the Committee is being given in the website of the state unit.

HAPPY NEW YEAR - 2016

Dear Comrades, 
The leadership of this association wishes a very happy and prosperous new year 2016 to all its members all across the country.

Graphic Happy New Year -mn3


We sincerely hope that 2016 will bring some solutions of some of the raging problems, engendered in 2015 and even prior to that.  Problems are many and stiff.  We have lots to ponder about the future of our service career and well beings of our family.  But today it is not the right day to delve in such perturbations.  Let us trust our ability and the conviction to concur the difficulties.  I would like to reassure our members that we shall continue to render our best of efforts to further the cause of ministerial cadre in every fora.  I appeal all the ministerial officers posted at different Commissionerates in Central Excise and Service Tax formations to come forward and join hands to form a strong and vibrant association.  It is the platform on which we can share our pains and discuss the ways and means to combat the odds.  The platform can only function on a long term basis once everybody comes forward in his own capacity.  Comrades there is no shortcut routes for success.  We only have to struggle and struggle together.

    Our Comrades of the Gujarat Zone has provided us a grand opportunity to come together at this crucial stage.  As we have already informed that an emergency meeting of the association will be held in Ahmedabad along with the zonal meeting of the Gujarat unit on 23.01.2016 in Ahmedabad.  May I take this opportunity to invite you once again to Ahmedabad on 23.01.2016 and the beautiful state of Gujarat (LINKED HEREWITH). 


      !!!! VERY VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 TO YOU & YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS !!!!

Yours comradely,

VISIT TO DELHI FROM 01st DEC, 2015 TO 03rd DEC, 2015

Dear Comrades,

       In continuation to my earlier message, I would like to share the following about my visit to Delhi, along with Shri Ram Lalit and Shri Prosenjit Pandey,  during 01st Dec 2015 to 03rd Dec 2015:


   The meeting with Member (P&V) lasted for more than an hour. Even though she told us that she would discuss only on the main agenda that is ‘withdrawal / amendment of RR of EA’, we could talk on other pending issues too. Madam was not ready to agree that the RR was finalized unilaterally, but our side once again stressed that the stakeholders were not given an opportunity to be heard before finalizing the said RR, hence the framing guidelines of RR given by DoPT was not followed. We also put forth that CBDT still follows the old RR and even the draft RR for EA in CBDT, has three years as qualifying service as Tax Assistant. Other points, like comparison between MACP and promotion, currency of 6th CPC, joining of this service by freshers leaving other organisation etc., were also brought forward during the discussion. In a nutshell, our side vehemently opposed the publication of new RR of EA, which would spoil the career of existing TAs and also who are about to join. She instructed Joint Secretary (Admin) to examine the issue and take up this with other authorities like DoPT etc.

          Madam was informed about the confusion created in some zones over the issue of letter by Board on 17th September 2015 and subsequent publication of RR of EA on 28th September 2015. She was of the opinion that pre-restructured vacancies can still be filled up on the basis of old/existing RR.

   This association put the demand that with regard to the promotion to TA from LDC, while counting the service of Havaldar, the service rendered as Sepoy, before being re-designated as Havaldar, should also be counted. Member (P&V) responded in a positive manner. We requested to issue an Order on this issue.

     With regard to the DPC for promotion to CAO, this association expressed its deep concern over the delay. Member (P&V) said that she would look into the matter and make it happen at the earliest. However, it was pointed out that reply from various zones on VC/IC were pending, causing the delay. Zonal leaders are requested to follow up the matter in their respective zones.  D.O. letter issued by Member (P&V) on this front is linked herewith - D.O. Letter & Annexure-III.

   On our demand to meet Hon’ble Chairman, CBEC to explain the seriousness of the issue of RR of EA, madam took us to Chairman and matter was discussed with the Chairman, CBEC.

    We also met concerned Deputy Secretaries and Under Secretaries in the Board to pursue different issues and requested to move the files to higher level officers for early action.

    We visited the office of DGHRD to find out the status of finalization of seniority list of A.O.s from the year 01.01.2009 to 30.06.2014.  It is learnt that many zones have not sent the filled up proforma as desired by the DGHRD letter having F. No. 8/B/187/HRD (HRM)/2014 dated 18.11.2015 (CLICK TO DOWNLOAD PAGE-1, PAGE-2 & PAGE-3) along with the seniority list of the respective zones.   All the zonal leaders are requested to take up the matter with concerned authorities and send the filled up proforma with signature, at the earliest. Copy of the above referred letter dated 18.11.15 is posted below for instant view:



Yours Comradely,

Dear Comrades,
                    
           As you are aware that Board convened a meeting on 14.12.2015 to discuss our views and observations on the report of 7th Central Pay Commission, Shri Ram Lalit, Liaison Secretary represented in the meeting. Subsequently Board has issued the Minutes of the meeting held on 14.12.15 under the chairmanship of Joint Secretary (Admn-EC) (CLICK TO SEE THE MINUTES DT. 14.12.15). We were in constant touch with other two ministerial associations of Customs wing and firmed out our basic demands which is also echoed by the 7th CPC like 6th CPC.  We want parity in Pay Structure with the similarly placed ministerial officers in CSS & CBDT.  Our submission is linked herewith (CLICK TO- 7TH CPC SUBMISSION DT.11.12.15 TO BOARD & SUBMISSION DT.11.12.15  ON 7TH CPC IN HIGHLIGHTS).  This association follows up this demand in subsequent occasions also.
   
        Besides, in response to Board's circulation, seeking suggestion on relaxation of the Recruitment Rules of STA & TA, we have also submitted our views (CLICK TO VIEW - STA-RELAXATION & TA-RELAXATION).

       This association also pursuing some relaxation in the pre-restructured Recruitment Rules and also demanding for scraping of the RR of EA in its present form.  Board vide it's communication dated 14.12.2015 (available in CBEC website click here to see)  has tried to defend the RR of EA which we will oppose properly with justification.

Yours Comradely,
