We had a very fruitful meeting with the DGHRM in presence of three other officials of DGHRD office.
Member (A) has assured that nothing negative steps would happen to this cadre. As he is new in the chair, he asked to give submissions on each issue like the type of self contained note, which our Association & Customs Association will submit jointly at the earliest.
AO RRs file has returned to Board with some small query from DoPT again. File is pending with Member (A) Sir and will be sent back to DoPT very soon.
CAO promotion proposal is held up for the want of docs from CBN and Mumbai Zone (docs in respect of total three officers only. All of our National leaders are in touch to both sides; hope to solve it up soon. Relaxation issues of EA & Inspector, the data are sought from all field formations which are pending at present.
Amendment of RRs (EA and Inspector), Board has sought few justifications from the DGHRD for its further process.
Amendment of TA RRs file has been sent back by the DoP&T to Board with some queries. So, ICT in the grade of TA is very much operative as per the existing RRs of TA dated 10.01.2014.
Other important issues, we will find out from other sections including Ad III A & III B of Board on tomorrow and will inform accordingly. We visited along with our National team and Customs SG at Hudco Visala (AD IIIA & ADIIIB Section) palace where all processes of Amendment of RRs & Relaxation files related to TA, EA and Inspector are being initiated.
First we met DS AD.IIIA related to ICT clause in TA RR we put our strong disagreement with removal this clause and said that we will never accept this in any case. After a long discussion, he told that in that case before its issuance, it will be put in the Board's website for stake holder's comments. DoP&T has just returned the TA RRs file to Board with some queries. So it’s big news for all those friends who were seeking ICT as per TA RRs.
Then we went to meet DS & US of AD IIIB where we discussed all the points regarding Relaxation and Amendment of RRs in the cadres of EA and Inspr and they directed us to submit our brief point wise proposals on it & also assured us that any amendment of RRs will be uploaded in the website for stake holders comments before its final publication / notification. We assured them that the OTR report as desired from all India field formations will be submitted by this month positively.. They told us that they will try their level best to give OTR this time in the grades of EA & Inspector, as ministerial cadres are the mostly affected at this juncture. We appreciated the positive intend of DS & US Sirs.
One important thing to share with you that the Cadre Restricting may not come before 2020 or 2021.
I really wish that what have been assured by all the Board Officials and DGHRD officers during our tour will be taken shortly and all of our major problems will be resolved soon in a positive mode. Hope for the best.
One thing to share u all. No harm will be occurred in respect of pension and all other pensionary benefits for the Ad-hoc officers who are retired or going to be retired. Board has assured on this front and is going to issue a clarification very soon.
