Myself along with G. Samdani Khan, Organizing Secretary and other Comrades from West Bengal, Hyderabad, New Delhi and Punjab have been on the move over the last three days visiting the various formations of the Board (CBEC). We summoned our all energy to pursue various issues, facing the well being of our members across the country. During our visit, we met Member (P&V) and had detailed discussions with the Deputy Secretaries and Under Secretaries of Ad.IIA/IIIA/IIIB/IV on the following issues:We have also submitted several representations which are linked with the message. The Association appreciates the cry of our members for relaxation in various form in the RR of Inspector for facilitations of promotions. But the unfortunate part is that replies to Board’s letter dated 09.02.2015 is wanting from many zones even after two and half months. Basic data about availabilities of vacancies and proposals from the Chief Commissioners were called for. In absence of the same, the proposals from the Board could not be firmed up. It is expected that a reminder letter will be issued shortly and the zonal leaders make it a point to pursue with their zonal administration to send the desired report to the Board at the earliest.It is also to be kept in mind that DoPT is not inclined to provide any relief in the old RR since the new one is already under consideration. We need to get our act together to impress the Authority in this regard. I hope the leadership will discuss the issue at length and take a call in the coming All India convention at Hyderabad to be held on 16.05.2015 (Saturday).This Association requested to consider the following relaxations vide our submissions dated 23.04.2015. The RR of Inspector, Executive Assistant (EA) and Stenographer Grade-I are under active consideration at various levels. We believe that some relief can only be provided if the “Retention Clause” is incorporated in the new RR. These, we have been pursuing for quite some time. However DoPT has to agree for that. We have submitted yet another representation on the said subject (CLICK HERE TO SEE) and also discussed with the concerned officers. I think that there is no room for complacency and the Hyderabad convention should deliberate the ways and means to achieve the same being of so much of vital importance for the future of the cadre. Despite our best efforts all necessary records are yet to be received by the Board as on 24.04.2015. Some information are still wanting for 11 officers (CLICK HERE TO SEE Page-1 &Page-2). Our Comrades from West Bengal, Delhi and Hyderabad zone have come forward to pursue the issue. It is not possible to give any tentative deadline at this stage. However the best efforts are on. Board’s communication dated 15.04.2015 regarding re-designation of posts of Deputy Office Superintendent (DOS) and Senior Tax Assistant (STA) has created a great deal of confusion in various zones. Decision of the government to re-designate such posts was taken in December, 2013. It is not clear as to what prompted the Board to convey the said decision after one and half years, since it was initially conveyed on 18.12.2013. Issue was appropriately taken up (CLICK HERE TO SEE). It was pointed out that such re-designated post of Executive Assistant (EA) will only take effect from the date of notification of new RR. It was also requested to fill up the vacant posts of Administrative Officer (AO) by relaxing the existing RR of AO. The detail exercise is required to stake a stronger claim on the subject. I request All India Zonal leaders to provide the following information through mail at my E-mail Id – As you aware that we have already given submission to 7th CPC. We visited the office of 7th CPC in person and sought an appointment with them. We also submitted the hard copy of our representation and met the officials. It was assumed that appointment will be given to us with the Commission in their good office where sufficient time will be provided. May I request our members to come and deliberate at Hyderabad at length, so that we can take up all the issues appropriately before 7th CPC. Before I conclude this message I once again request the representatives of all the zones to attend the Hyderabad convention scheduled on 16th May, 2015. Kindly keep in touch with the following Comrades:

OUR VISIT TO DELHI DURING 10TH TO 12TH  September, 2013 –

The highlight of the recent visit of the office bearers of this Association with Revenue Secretary and Hon’ble Chairperson of CBEC on 12/9/2013 at 4 p.m. and 5.30 p.m. respectively. The following points were taken up for discussion in accordance with a pre determined agenda:-

(1) Promotions to CAO:-  In the face of vigorous persuasion of this Association, it was assured that one DPC for the years 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 is most likely to be held in very soon. 

(2) All India Seniority list of A.O.:-  DGHRD is updating the All India Seniority list of A.O.  as on 31.12.2008 again. In this connection, the DGHRD has requested vide letter F.No.8/B/67/HRD(HRM)2011 dated 12.09.2013 to all Cadre Controlling Authorities to forward the seniority list of AO of their respective Zones.

(3) Recruitment Rule of A.O.:– It has been informed that Recruitment        Rule of A.O. has been sent to the Law Ministry and presently lying for translation to Hindi, following which it will go for notification in the official Gazette. 

(4) Pay Scales for A.O.: – It was pointed out by the leadership that Department of Expenditure is making certain submissions in the court of law through which they have acceded to the recommendation concerning parity between Headquarters organization and field formations like us. Board may take up the issue afresh with Department of Expenditure on the basis of their submissions before judicial fora.  Revenue Secretary has been very kind to accept our request and directed to do the needful.

(5)  Recruitment Rule of Inspector and age relaxation: - The Association vehemently argued for incorporation of a suitable clause in the new RR to protect the qualifying service i.e. – 2 years of present STAs & 10 years of TAs and Stenographers as well in terms of the DoPT’s guidelines.  It was also requested to remove age bar together and extent their facilities even before notification of new RR.  The Hon’ble Chairperson has been very kind to appreciate the Board for incorporation of a suitable provision for retention of the present qualifying service in the new RR and issued necessary direction to the concerned officers.  On age relaxation also, the response was positive.  We have submitted a separate representation seeking age relaxation even before notification of new RR.

(6)  Cadre Restructuring:-  The leadership pointed out that nothing has been conveyed to this Association on Cadre Restructuring proposals which has been altered many a times in the recent past.  The Revenue Secretary advised to submit a representation on this issue.  Subsequently, this Association was able to submit a representation with 4 tier structure of A.O. to the Revenue Secretary with a copy to Chairperson.  The Cadre-restructuring file is still pending with Committees of Secretaries and once it is cleared it will be sent to Cabinet.

The leadership of this Association also pursued DGHRD officials for preparation of All India Seniority list of A.O. and an early date of the CAO DPC  Besides we move around all the concerned administrative sections Ad.IIA & Ad.IIIB of CBEC and met the officials to pursue our issues, detailed above.  Over all it was a pretty successful tour which has engendered some kind of optimism.  

       Comradely Yours
