J.C.A/ M/12/2008 Dated: 2nd November , 2008
Central Board of Direct Taxes,
New Delhi 110 001.
We have been directed by the meeting of the Central JCA held at New Delhi on 2nd November to submit the enclosed Resolution for your kind consideration
( K.K.N. Kutty & Rajesh D Menon)
The Central JCA which met at New Delhi on 2nd November 2008, to review the response of the Board to the representations made by it to settle the charter of demands came to the conclusion that the Board has not made any attempt to negotiate and settle issues. The meeting also noted with dismay that the despite the notification issued by the Govt on 29.8.2008 in respect of Inspectors, AO Grade III, PS and DPA Group B the Grade Pay has not been raised to Rs.4600. The meeting took serious note of the fact that while passing the order no 141, promoting ITOs as ACsIT the agreed understanding of retaining the promotee officers in the same station whose children are studying in 10th and 12th Standard, working spouse ground and to post them as per the options exercised by them has not been followed. It is surprising that a new concept of obtaining vigilance clearance before allowing officers to assume charge as ACIT has been introduced without any valid reasoning.
The meeting therefore has decided to intensify the agitational programme in the following manner in the face of the stubborn attitude of the Board:
1. The members of the JCA will continue to abide by the earlier decision on agitational programme.
2. Members of JCA will not organize or participate in search and seizure action u/s 132 and Survey u/s 133A.
3. In case the demands are not settled including the modification of transfer orders and upgradation of Grade pay of Inspectors, AO Grade III, PS and DPA Group B immediately, the JCA will be constrained to call upon its members to organize a strike action besides continuing the ongoing agitational programmes.
