ONETIME RELAXATION IN RECRUITMENT RULES OF INSPECTOR, STA, STENO GR-I & TA AND CAO DPC

Dear Comrades,
                        As you are all aware that Board has invited proposals from different zones in terms of relaxation in the existing Recruitment Rules to facilitate promotions.  However the responses from the zones have been very slow.  Only handful responses of zones have given the details of vacancy position of their zones.  Board needs to assess the vacancy position and the need for relaxation at the all India level.  Therefore I request my friends from different zones (particularly from the large zones) to pursue with the local administrations and send the zonal proposals.

            You are also aware that this Association has submitted its suggestions towards grant of onetime relaxation in the existing Recruitment Rules.  In fact G. Samdani Khan, the General Secretary of Hyderabad Unit had taken up these issues along with our submission in person with Hon’ble Member (P&V) at Delhi.  Madam also wanted the replies to come from all the zones.  I am also in receipt of further suggestions on relaxation of certain clause of the Recruitment Rules of Tax Assistant and Inspector from different zones.  Most of the proposals have been incorporated in our submission.  For others, we will have further consultation.

            As per as the next DPC for promotion to CAO is concerned, again, the delay is attributable to the delays on the part of the zones for sending the desired ACR/APAR, dossiers etc. to the Board.  Member (P&V) herself has written D.O. letter to all the Chief Commissioners.  It is unfortunate that our members are not concerned enough to pursue with the local administration.  DPC has to happen only with the full details to be provided by the zones.  We also expect that the draft Seniority List for the Administrative Officers from 01.01.2009 onwards will be published shortly.  Members are requested to take note of the same and submit their representations if any in quick time so that the same can be finalized by the Board.

Yours Comradely,

Dear Comrades,

                       Leader of this Association G. Samdani Khan, Organizing Secretary has been to Delhi on 26.02.15 & 27.02.15. During his stay, he met Hon'ble Board Member (P&V) and taken up the issue of Onetime relaxation in the Recruitment Rule of Inspector, STA & TA on the line of this Association's suggestion made on it's letter dated 23.02.2015 and submitted  the same letter to the Member (P&V) (CLICK HERE TO SEE THE LETTER). Member (P&V) has informed that reports with reference to Board's letter dated 09.02.15 on the issue of "onetime relaxation in RRs of Inspector, STA, TA" are pending from many zones.

        I request all the zonal leaders and the central office bearers to take initiatives and pursue with the concerned zonal administrations, so that the report pertaining to one time relaxation in the RRs is sent to the Board immediately and a copy of the same report may also be sent to the All India Body (i.e.-email- pramanik.ashim4@ gmail.com) so that the matter can be taken up with the Board in a strong way on the basis of the vacancy figures of different zones.

1.  Bangalore    -    23
2.  Vadodara     -    11
3.  Kolkata        -    28

DETAIL REPORT OF DELHI VISIT (DURING THE PERIOD OF 16.12.14 TO 18.12.14)



President - Ashim Pramanick [ Middle ]
Asst. Secretary General - Tarun Kumar Seal [ left hand side ]
Organizing Secretary - G. Samdani Khan [ right hand side ]




Dear Comrades,
                   In continuation to my earlier message on 19.12.2014 let me share some of the details on each of the following issues which were taken up during our last visit to Delhi:-

   1.   Promotion to Chief Accounts Officer (CAO) and updating of Seniority List of Administrative Officers

While it is necessary to update the Seniority List of Administrative Officers, but the same should not be linked with holding of the next DPC of CAO.  It was emphasized that Senior Administrative Officers are retiring every month without getting the promotion, despite availability of vacancy in the post of CAO.  We have made a submission on this front (Click to see the copies of letters no. 1.Member(P&V) -Page1 & Page2, 2.JS(Admin.) and 3.Chairman).

Member (P&V) was in agreement with our suggestion and assured that necessary action will be initiated to hold the DPC for promotion to CAO on the basis of the final Seniority List of Administrative Officer (updated upto 2008).  The Member (P&V) has also assured to see that the Seniority List of Administrative Officer is updated on receipt of full facts from the zones (reports were pending from Mumbai, Chennai and DG Inspection as on date).

    2.   Promotion to the post of Inspector:

This Association has made two separate submissions (Click to see the copies for relaxation letters no. 1.Member(P&V) and 2.DGHRD) and (also Click for Retention clause letters no. 1.Chairman, 2.JS(Admin.) and 3.Member(P&V)-Page1 and Page2, one on relaxation of provisions of the existing Recruitment Rule and the other on incorporation of “Retention” clause in the forthcoming Recruitment Rule of Inspector.  The issues were discussed at length with Member (P&V), Deputy Secretary, Ad.IIIA & Ad.IIIB and Under Secretary, Ad.IIIA & Ad.IIIB.  It was assured that the same will be examined.  We need to follow rigorously on this front.  I request the zonal leaders to come forward and make a concerted effort.

3.   Operation of existing Recruitment Rule of Senior Tax Assistant (STA):

It has been the phenomena in most zones that the additional posts created in Executive Assistant (EA), are not being filled up for want of Recruitment Rule of EA etc.  It was requested to issue a clarification on this front (Click to see the copies of the letters no. 1.Chairman, 2.JS(Admin.) and 3.Member(P&V)-Page1 & Page2).  The fact remains that the existing Recruitment Rule of STA is still in vogue till the RR of EA is notified and it was requested to operate that RR to fill up the vacancies.  The response was also positive and we expect some clarification from the Board.

    4.   Relaxation/Amendment in the Recruitment Rule of Tax Assistant (TA):

We have been making this request for quite some time to amend/relax the Recruitment Rule of TA to facilitate promotion from LDC.  Board has also assured earlier to consider this request.  We once again made similar request to Member (P&V) (Click to see the copies of the letters no. 1.Chairman-Page1 & Page2, 2.Member(P&V)-Page1 & Page2).

As tried to impress upon you that issues are required to be followed up on a regular basis to ensure some result.  We are certainly lacking on this front.  We don’t have the organization manpower to run an effective show at this moment.  Thus it is imperative to induct some broadminded, energetic and willing person in the field of All India Association.  I have already told you that All India Convention is likely to be held in Hyderabad in 2nd or 3rd week of April, 2015 to come and join us there.

          With best wishes.
          Yours Comradely,
