Wishes All a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year – 2017
HOLD LUNCH HOUR DEMONSTRATION IN FRONT OF THE
PAOS OF CBEC ON 9TH FEBRUARY, 2017
The employees working in the Civil Accounts setup of CBEC are suffering extremely. The administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC has been maintaining a harassing and vindictive attitude towards the employees. They are threatening and harassing those employees who are raising their voice of protests and on the other hand extending undue favour to their Hench men.
While discussing the Madurai and the Jaipur episodes with the Principal CCA, CBEC on 9th August 2016, she had asked the representatives of the Association to submit the items agenda for a formal meeting. Accordingly, the Central Headquarters of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association vide its letter dated 28.08.2016 had submitted 20 (twenty) items seeking a formal meeting. These issues were relating to filling up of vacant posts, provision of LDC and MTS, vacation of vindictive actions, Grant of better Pay Scales to DEOs, promotion of better employer employee relations, consideration of transfer requests, clearance of long pending compassionate appointment cases, clearance of MACP cases, ensuring proper drinking water supply and grant of annual honorarium to all etc.
Following the letter dated 28.08.2016; the Central Headquarters of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association issued reminders on 28.09.2016 and 24.11.2016 for convening the meeting. But no meeting was fixed. In pursuance of these letters, when the representatives of the Association called on the Administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC, the administration conveyed that, it would ensure that no meeting is fixed between the Central Headquarters of the Association and the Principal Chief Controller of Accounts, Central Board Excise and Customs. However, Unit Association is welcome for meeting on any day. In order to maintain a congenial atmosphere and to maintain the cordial relation between the National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations and the All India Association of Pay and Accounts Officers (Civil), the NFCAA repeatedly discussed the problem created by administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC with the President and Secretary General of All India Association of Pay and Accounts Officers (Civil). Responding to the request of National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations, President of All India Association of Pay and Accounts Officers (Civil) had also requested the administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC in the first week of December, 2016 to arrange the meeting. But, the administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC had given false assurance to him too as no meeting was arranged. The administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC has taken this position because of two reasons No. 1 if a meeting is held between the all India representatives and the Pr. CCA, CBEC misheves of administration shall get exposed and No. 2 if the meeting takes place between the unit representatives and Pr. CCA, CBEC sufficient pressure of administration could be exerted on the representatives of the unit Association in isolation and there would be no necessity of offering any commitment on any of the issues to the employees representatives and at the same time administration shall be able to claim that the meeting was convened with the Association.
Further, administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC has also conveyed to the members who had requested directly to the officers of administration for conceding their requests that, their reqeusts shall not be considered because they had approached the Association.
During last year, apart from vindictive transfer order of Madurai, all other transfer orders were issued in a selective manner without observing any norm or guidelines prescribed by DOPT & CVC. Even after holding DPC, the orders of Compassionate appointments have not been issued and reasons behind this are not obviously beyond doubt. Further, to harras, Secretary General, personally, the administration of CBEC is not reimbursing his sixth months old indoor medical reimbursing claim and not responding to the request of the Association to fix the Pay of the Secretary General after implementation of 7CPC recommendations.
In view of the above discussed anti-employee and negative attitudes of the CBEC authorities it has been decided that, all Branches shall hold lunch hour protest demonstration in front of the PAOs of CBEC Units on 9th February, 2017. The meeting shall adopt following Resolution and hand over one copy to the local head of office of CBEC and endorse its copies to the Pr. CCA, CBEC, New Delhi and the CGA under intimation to Federation Headquarters.
Dear Comrades, please implement the programme. If you do not implement the programme unitedly, your problems would not move towards the direction of settlement. It has been repeatedly established that, struggle leads to success. In CBEC setup itself the path has been shown in the recent past by Jaipur and Madurai Units.
With warm greetings,
This meeting of members of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category-II being held under the banner of National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations _____________________ (Name of Station) ______________________ Branch today the 9th February, 2017 noted that, in pursuance of the discussion held been the Pr.

CCA, CBEC.
But it is nearly six months, the Principal Chief Controller Accounts, Central Board of Excise and Customs did not fix any meeting. The Central Headquarters of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association issued repeated request letters for convening the meeting. But no response was received.
