I alongwith the National President Sh. Ashim Pramanik and Secretary General Sh. Shankar Kumar Saha had been in Delhi during the last week. We took stalk of the status of various issues and pursued them at the concerned levels of CBEC. The issues are as under:
1. Much delayed promotion to Chief Accounts Officer (CAO).
2. One Time Relaxation for promotion to Administrative Officer, Inspector & Senior Tax Assistant.
3. Promotion against newly created posts on the basis of the existing Recruitment Rules.
4. Counting of the length of service of Sepoy as qualifying service in the post of Havaldar for the purpose of promotion of LDC to the post of TA.
5. Notification of the Recruitment Rules of Executive Assistant (EA) at variance with that of CBDT.
6. Recruitment Rules and Seniority List of Administrative Officer.
7. Revision of Pay and assignment of up-graded Pay structure in the wake of implementation of 7th Pay Commission.
The developments on certain issues were positive, whereas, on certain other issues it was not so bright. We followed up everything and met the Senior Officers to expedite them. Details are being placed in our subsequent message.
On organizational front we decided to firm up our ties with CoC. Though we could not take part in the CoC meeting held on 28.03.2016 for an unavoidable reasons, our President was in constant touch with the CoC leadership. It was felt that issues relating to up-gradation of Pay can be better pursued from a bigger platform like CoC [A Committee consisting all Association of CBEC and CBDT] (Minutes of the CoC meeting held on 28.03.2016 is linked herewith).
We also finally took a call to go for judicial redressal on the disparity of the Recruitment Rules of Executive Assistant with that of CBDT. I along with some Comrades of Delhi Unit will finalize the netegrity in due time and as early as possible.
I am sure that you will be keen to know on the developments to your career advancement. But right now I don’t have the finished product for you on my way back from Delhi. But we will take all practicable and possible steps.Looking forward to interact you through my next message.
