Subject: Request for grant of Honorarium to the staff and officers working in different Pay and Accounts Offices of CBEC.

Madam,

            The Central Board of Excise and Customs and the Commissionerates functioning under it have undergone huge expansion. The quantum of revenue earnings by the Central Board of Excise and Customs all together have also increased manifold. But to commensurate the increased work load in accounting side, Government of India has not increased the strength of the officers & Employees of Accounting setup of CBEC proportionately. Rather, this setup is facing acute problem of shrinkage due to retirements, resignation and non-recruitment etc.

            Considering the above conditions and appreciating the services of employees and officers, all earlier Pr. CCA/ CCAs had recognized the sacrifices of the employees and officers by granting a token amount as honorarium to them without any discrimination every year.

            But this year, you have granted honorarium to a section of the employees. This development has generated wide spread disappointment among the employees and officers. Employees of different offices including your own office have resolutely urged upon you to kindly grant honorarium to all staff members without any discrimination. Some of the representatives of the Associations and many staff members from Delhi and Madurai etc. have even expressed their inability to accept the honorarium due to discrimination in granting the honorarium.

            Therefore, I request you to kindly grant honorarium to entirety of staff and officers of Civil Accounts setup of CBEC without any discrimination so that they are not demoralized and suffer from the feelings of unfair treatment towards them.

            This Association shall be highly thankful to you, if you kindly take an early favorable decision in this regard.

Thanking you

Subject: - Vindictiveness and harassment to employees by the Administration of PAO, CBEC, Jaipur - request for intervention regarding.

Madam,

            I have been directed to invite your kind attention to my letter endorsement No:- AICAEA/HQ/C-7/2016/156-158 dated: 17.02.2016 on the above mentioned subject and state that, it is more than two months your office has not taken any tangible action to  restore the working atmosphere in the PAO, Central Excise, Jaipur to enable the employees in the office to  discharge their duties with dignity and self-esteem.
            On 1st April 2016, when I met the CCA, CBEC on this matter, I was asked by him to specify the name of the complainants. But I explained him that the information on the prevailing situation of the office has been brought to our knowledge by the Rajasthan Branch of our Association and it was not the complaints of any individual(s). I had also assured him that the Association shall extend its full co-operation to the authorities if an independent inquiry is conducted to assess the actual fact.
            Subsequently, we were informed by the Rajasthan Branch Committee our Association that the AAO (Admn) of your Office and the CCA himself had visited the office on 7th and 8th April 2016 and took reporting from some of the employees selectively instead of interacting with the representatives of the Branch or Central Headquarters Association.  As such, preferring to have assessment from a section of terrified employees by the visiting officers ignoring the democratic forum is neither scientific nor acceptable by us.
            Therefore, on behalf of the Association I request you to kindly intervene into the matter personally and take necessary action for restoration of normalcy in the office without further delay.
 
Thanking you,
Yours Sincerely,


(V.Bhattacharjee)
Secretary General

Subject: - Vindictiveness and harassment to employees by the Administration of PAO, CBEC, Jaipur -  request for intervention regarding.

Sir,
            It has been brought to our notice by the Rajasthan Branch of our Association that the employees of PAO, CBEC, Jaipur are facing severe vindictiveness and complete hostility from the local administration. Actions and attitude of AAO (Admn.) towards all the staff members are totally vindictive and non-professional. He has been treating his sub-ordinates in a very uncivilized and unacceptable way. By exploiting his official position and under the patronage of the Sr. AO, he is not only using vulgar languages and harassing the employees in different forms but always threatening them that “Main Teri CR kharab kar dunga” and using many other unpartliamentary languages which cannot be recorded in black and white.
            Following few incidents are the examples of intolerable behavior of the AAO (Admn) and the Sr.AO which have totally vitiated the working atmosphere of the office.
1.       The AAO (Admn) has been shifting the staff frequently from one seat to another in less than two months as a result of which both official work and staff are suffering. One of the staff members was shifted from Rev. Accounts seat to Pension seat. AAO (Accounts) was forced to relieve the concerned individual from Accounts section even before he could hand over the charge to new incumbent. Though the said official was asked to attend the pension works without any guidance/ training, he disposed the works efficiently within the time frame set for him by the administration. But the administration continued its harassment to him in different forms like serving memos on baseless acquisitions and seeking explanations on non-issues. Under this situation he is passing his days with extreme mental stress.
2.      One of the staff members was compelled to leave the Headquarter during holidays (Sat/Sunday) due to a family circumstance beyond his control.  As there was no way to inform the  authorities  on closed holiday, he intimated the office telephonically on next working day i.e. on Monday that he had to  leave the station on an emergency condition and  he would be on leave for some specific days. As soon as he resumed duty, he was served a memo by AAO (Admn) and asked to explain “How and why he left the headquarters without permission?”- This action is nothing but deliberate mental torture to an employee.
3.       Two MTS are working in the office.  They are being served memos frequently on frivolous grounds by the AAO (Admn).
4.      AAO (Admn) purposely refuses CL and EL to the employees with the motive of harassing them.
5.      Behavior of Sr. Accounts Officer and AAO (Admn) towards women employees is highly indecorous. They misbehave and shout in an undignified manner on top of their voices towards the ladies which tantamount to gender bias and sexual harassments.
After taking prior permission from Sr.AO, when the two women employees of the office had been proceeding to participate in Central Revenue Sub zonal sports meet held on 07.12.2015 and 08.12.2015, the AAO (Admn) interfered into the affair. He shouted and misbehaved with them by using offensive languages. He also   threatened them that he would treat their absence from office as unauthorized and being the DDO, he would withhold their pay.
6.      The AAO (Admn), taking the advantage of being DDO, interferes in to the affairs of Accounts section. He purposely finds ways and means to interfere into the day to day work of Accounts section even during the presence of AAO (Accounts). His main motto is to humiliate the staff and issue memos instead of doing official work. He repeatedly threatens the staff by saying “Saare accountant mere hisab se kaam karenge, ya fir main unke hisaab se kaam karunga” and also “Main BSF se aaya hoon, mujhe goliyan chalani aati hai”. These statements are totally abusive and unbecoming of a government official.
7.      The AAO (Admn) is also interfering into the routine nature internal affairs of the recognized employees Association. He is using derogatory languages against the Association, purposefully harassing the Office bearers of the Association and threatening them in various forms. Not to mention about Branch Office Bearers, he is even creating obstruction to our Assistant Secretary General who is an all India Office Bearer and not allowing him to discharge his assigned organizational duties permissible under the Government of India Rules.
            The staff of PAO, CBEC, Jaipur is thus totally demoralized and feeling helpless due to continuous degrading work environment created by certain officers. It may be brought on record that due to increasing stress in office, one of the employees had faced a paralysis attack recently due increased blood pressure which is untenable.
            When Unit Association and the Rajasthan Branch of this Association took up these matters with the Head of office and requested him to resolve the issues across the table, the Sr. Accounts Officer concerned had refused to discuss with them stating that all powers are vested with AAO (Admn) and the staff shall have to deal with and satisfy him.
             It is clearly evident from the above facts that a total lawless condition is prevailing in the PAO, CBEC, Jaipur and the administration is treating the employees as their domestic servants.
            Therefore, on behalf of this Association, I request you to kindly intervene and take appropriate action to restore the congenial atmosphere in the office so that the employees working in the office could discharge their duties with dignity and self-esteem.
 
Thanking you,
Yours Sincerely,

(V.Bhattacharjee)
