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