Dated: 2.2.2012

28th All India Conference of ITEF

The ITEF, Gujarat Ciorcle has already informed you the details of the programme of the All India Conference. The Host Unit is making all out efforts so that no stone is left unturned in making the Conference a grand success. Along with collection of advertisement for the souvenir, it is also requested to kindly adhere to the number of delegates and observers fixed for your respective circles. Since limited arrangements are being made at the venue, which is at an isolated location and away from Ahmedabad city your all out support and co-operation is required for making the Conference a memorable. This is necessary so as to ensure that the Host unit is not put into unnecessary difficulties and also to ensure a pleasant and comfortable stay of the delegates.

Secretariat Meeting

The Secretariat of the ITEF met on 31st January, 2012 at New Delhi. The draft report of the Secretary General to the all India Conference and statement of accounts for the years 2009-10 and 2010-11 were discussed and accepted. The Secretary General reported the outcome of the JCA meeting held on 24th December, 2011. It was informed that it was decided to meet again after meeting in the respective decision making forums for deciding further course of action. However, the ITGOA revived their agitational programme from 31th January, 2012 and a request was made to the ITEF on the same day to join them. In their circular they have made reference to the assurances of the ITEF leadership in their BGM held at Mumbai on 18.1.2012. Unfortunately without imbibing the spirit of that assurance and also of the decisions taken at the JCA meeting on 24.12.2011, they commenced their agitation without causing any discussion with the ITEF. Even the Secretariat of the Federation could not discuss the issue in the secretariat meeting on 31st of January, 2012, as the request came to us late in the day. As the Conference is only a fortnight away, further course of action will have to be decided after discussion in the ensuing All India Conference.

Cadre Restructuring

The DOPT has cleared the Cadre restructuring proposal. According to our understanding there has been a reduction of 391 posts in the Group A cadres up to the level of DCIT. The proposal in respect of Gr.B&C has already been cleared by the Department of Expenditure and Finance Minister without any changes. Now the cadre restructuring proposal is expected to go to the group of Secretaries and then to the Cabinet for clearance.
