Sub: Redressal of the staff grievances under Employee Grievance Redressal Mechanism vs. achieving revenue target.
Sir,
            Kindly refer to the very first meeting of the Association with your goodself regarding staff grievances. At the end of the meeting, your goodself was pleased to appeal the Association asking its members to work for the achievement of the revenue target for the financial year of 2014-15 because of CBEC being far behind of the same as compared to previous years. The Association was assured by you to look into all of the staff grievances as soon as the work of revenue target achievement is finalised. Accordingly, the Association also promised to be with you on the issue and communicated your appeal to its members further appealing them to work for the achievement of the revenue target.
2. It is further submitted with due regards that the revenue has already been achieved like always above the target by the committed efforts done by our officers and you have also shown your happiness vide DO letter dt. 08.04.15 in this regard congratulating the officers working throughout the country. But very unfortunately, no steps seem to be taken to redress the staff grievances despite of the work done by the staff to achieve the revenue target as per your appeal made to the Association. As a result, the staffside has been suffering miserably like ever being neglected in toto and all of their grievences being unredressed. A minuted meeting for the same, therefore, is much awaited.
            3. In view of the above, it is requested that the immediate steps may kindly be taken to redress all of the staff grievances under the employee grievance redressal mechanism. Association requests and expects for the disposal of all of the grievances during your kind tenure as Chairman of the CBEC. No need to submit that all of the grievances have already been submitted to the concerned authorities including your goodself. If required and asked, all of the grievances shall be submitted again.           
Thanking you,                                                                         
Yours faithfully,

Sub: Meeting of 25.05.15.
Sir,
Kindly refer to the meeting of the Association held with your goodself on 25.05.15 and the points submitted by the Association vide its Ref. No. 58/A/15 Dt. 25.05.15.
2. It is submitted with due regards that you were kind enough to give patient hearing to the Association. You were also pleased to assure the Association to take necessary action at least regarding the following points on the immediate basis having personal supervision-
A. Immediate conducting of DPCs upto 2015-16 panel year for the post of Asstt. Commissioner as per DOPT provisions as our officers are regularly retiring without promotion despite of a huge number of promotional vacancies being in hand: The DPC upto 2015-16 should have been conducted in the month of January, 2015. Immediate steps may kindly be taken to update the DPC as we have conducted the DPC only upto 2013-14, which was also incomplete. The DPCs for the years 2013-14, 2014-15 & 2015-16 should have been conducted in January-13, January-14 & January-15 respectively. It is also well pertinent to mention that 2118 posts of temporary Asstt. Commissioner have been created merely for 5 years only for the promotions of the promotee officers, out of which 1½ years have already expired and our officers are forced to retire without promotion despite of thousands of promotional posts being in hand.  
B. Implementation of the CBEC circular issued vide F. No. A-26017/44/94-Ad II (A) Dt. 08.03.95 regarding arrears of pay: This circular was issued based on the order of Jabalpur CAT but the same is still unimplemented. Immediate steps may kindly be taken to implement the same. Unfortunately, no action is being taken despite of repeated assurances.
C. Retrospective implementation of the pay scale revision of the Superintendents at par with NCB: The Superintendents of NCB and Central Excise were the part & parcel of one & the same RRs once upon a time having a common seniority list for being promoted to the same post. The pay scale of the Superintendents of NCB has been upgraded and they have also been granted time scale after 4 years of service based on our precedent. But they have been granted retrospective benefit since 01.01.1996 whereas we have been given prospective benefit since 21.04.04. Immediate steps may kindly be taken to undo the discrimination.  
            3. It is also submitted that we were very much hopeful and enthusiastic to get some positive result at an early date at least regarding the above points but anything is still awaited even after around one month.
            4. It is, therefore, once more requested to your goodself to take necessary action in the matter at the earliest possible date. We expect some relief regarding these points in your kind tenure itself.       
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Sub: Report of the B. B. Agrawal study group on stagnation of group B officers.
Sir,
            Kindly refer to the Ref. No. 19/P/15 Dt. 13.02.15 of the Association.
            2. It is again submitted with due regards that the issue of extraordinarily acute stagnation being faced by our officers was raised before the Cabinet Secretary by the Association and he was kind enough to recommend to the Cabinet of India to take extra measures in addition to the cadre restructuring to remove the stagnation of group B executive officers of Central Excise. The Cabinet was also pleased to accept and approve the same. As a result, the subject mentioned study group was formed. The time granted to the said study group to submit its report has already expired but the report is still awaited.
            3. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly ask the study group to submit its report at an early date and take due measures to enable the Central Excise executive officers to enter into PB4 levels like their counterparts. Even otherwise, it is requested to take due measures on immediate basis for group B executive officers of Central Excise as per the approval by the Cabinet.
            Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Sub: Order dt. 08.12.14 of Hon’ble High Court of Madras in Writ Petition No. 19024 of 2014 & M.P. No. 1 of 2014 filed by Sh. R. Chandrasekaran.
Sir,
Kindly refer to letter F. No. A-23011/23/2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 26.05.15 of CBEC addressed to the Chief Commissioner of Central Excise Chennai Zone and copy endorsed to the Pr Chief Controller of Accounts, New Delhi as well as various representations of the Association requesting for the general implementation of various court orders.
            2. It is submitted with due regards that the legal verdicts are not being implemented in general by the CBEC/Govt. even after being finalized by the various legal courts whether relating to MACP upgradation or stepping-up in the case of ACP/MACP upgradation or time scale or any other issue. The benefit of the verdicts is being granted only to the applicant forcing other similarly situated officers to adopt the legal recourse which wastes the time, resources and money not only of the individuals but also of the Govt. as well as Courts.
            3. The benefit of the court verdicts at least in the following matters has not been granted to all similarly situated officers in general except the applicants despite of being finalized at the level of the Apex Court/High Court-
            A. MACP upgradation in the promotional hierarchy quashing the para 8.1 of MACPS.
            B. Stepping-up of pay of seniors, if junior is getting higher pay on account of ACP/MACPS.     
            C. Grade pay of Rs. 5400/- to the officers after completion of 4 years in the pay scale of Superintendent on account of ACP/MACP upgradation at the time of working as Inspector.
            D. Not offsetting of time scale with the MACP upgradation in case of IInd ACP holders etc. etc.
            4. The Hon'ble Supreme Court in the judgment dt. 17.10.14 in the Civil Appeal No. 9849 of 2014 in the matter of State of Uttar Pradesh & Ors Vs. Arvind Kumar Srivastava & Ors has held as under: 
            “Normal rule is that when a particular set of employees is given relief by the Court, all other identically situated persons need to be treated alike by extending that benefit. Not doing so would amount to discrimination and would be violative of Article 14 of the Constitution of IndiaThis principle needs to be applied in service matters more emphatically as the service jurisprudence evolved by this Court from time to time postulates that all similarly situated persons should be treated similarly. Therefore, the normal rule would be that merely because other similarly situated persons did not approach the Court earlier, they are not to be treated differently.
            5. In spite of various such decisions of Apex Court and various other courts already brought to the kind knowledge of the administration, the benefit is not being extended to all other similarly situated employees. If any matter on service issue/policy is implemented based on the verdict given by the legal court, the Govt. is bound to give its benefit to all similarly situated employees. No need to say that no Govt. organization/department/ministry is above the courts and it seems contemptuous, if the benefit of the court orders is not given to the similarly situated employees.
           

6. As per the discriminatory practice, the orders for general implementation benefitting all equally placed officers have also not been issued in the subject-mentioned matter to force other concerned officers to go to the legal courts. It will not only increase the unwarranted litigations but is also against the policy of the govt. to minimize the litigations. But it seems that none in the administration side is worried to implement the govt. policy of minimum litigations. 
7. In view of the above, it is requested that the benefit of all of the court orders deciding the general issue relating to any matter including the ones mentioned in para 3 above as well as subject-mentioned matter may kindly be granted to all similarly situated employees at an early date through a general order without forcing them to go for legal recourse.
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Sub: Transfer posting in the grade of Asstt./ Deputy Commissioners-regarding.
Sir,
Kindly refer to letter F. No. A-22013/5/2015-Ad.II Dt. 17.06.15 of CBEC addressed to all Chief Commissioners and Director Generals under CBEC on the above subject.
2. It is submitted with due regards that the newly promoted 2118 Asstt. Commissioners were kept at the existing stations as per the request of the Association as well as the established past practice barring those who were willing to get their station changed or cases where the vacancies were not existing at the existing station. In case of non-existence of vacancies at the existing/requested station and also keeping in view the connectivity with the parent station/zone, the youngest officers were transferred to other nearest stations/zones with the intention to call them back to the parent station/zone at the earliest possible opportunity on existence of vacancies.
3. Now vide above referred letter of the CBEC, it has been forced to change the existing stations of all of the promotee Asstt. Commissioners promoted against temporary posts. The reason of this decision is no way understood. They got their promotions at the fag end after having suffered with the gross injustice for decades. It will again be the gross injustice with them, if they are transferred to outstations in their old age as nobody will be able to shift the all-settled family to new station. Nobody will also be able to have double establishments, one at old station and another at new station. It will only place them under unwarranted and unbearable financial burden.
4. Moreover, there seems no administrative inconvenience in placing them at their existing stations. The displacement from their existing station will also place the govt. under unnecessary financial burden to give them transfer grant, transfer allowance etc. in the present time of controlling the govt. expenditure for which our present Prime Minister is also very serious.
5. In view of the above, it is requested not to displace the promotee Asstt./Deputy Commissioners from their existing station without any valid reason and merely as a matter of pleasure barring the willing ones.
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Secretary General.
