No. AIPAEA/CHQ/Circular/12/2019  Dated 18-02-2019                                  

Dear Comrades,

      At the outset, CHQ, congratulates all the Units for successfully observing the First three phases of our agitational programs on six point charter of demands, and the two days National Strike on 08 & 09 January 2019 as per the call of Confederation. Almost every week, General Secretary (GS) visited Delhi, pursued our issues with the authorities - ADG, Director (PA-Admn), Director (SR), DDG(PA-Admn), Sr. DDG (PAF). Meaningful discussions were held on various issues like victimization issue of Chennai, Cuttack & Kolkata, recovery of stepped up pay of PAOs Hyderabad & Bhopal, Under Rule 38 transfer cases, special recruitment at Regional level in Assam, NE and other Circle where vacancies are in large number, building issue of Ahmedabad & Hyderabad, formation of new PAOs at Dehradun and Vijayawada, holding of JA confirmatory exam twice in a year. Issues of Cadre restructuring and modifications in the RR of AAO cadre were also discussed emphatically. A clarification, though inadequate on the recovery of stepping up issue of Hyderabad has been issued on 08.02.2019, efforts are on for another clarification covering all the left out points to get it issued by PA Wing. The General Secretary brought to the notice of authorities the problems arising out of implementation of CSI and urged them to resolve such problems by taking corrective measures.

The meeting with the Sr. DDG on the six point charter of demand on which we conducted three phases of agitation was held on 08.02.2019, the views of Administration on the issues of filling of vacant posts, resolving problems in CSI, under Rule 38 transfer, opening of PAOs at Dehradun and Vijayawada, cadre restructuring of PAO, Regional Recruitment in circles where vacancies are more than 50%, victimization of staff was very much positive. As far as SCF promotion in AAO Cadre authorities were non committal under the pretext that matter is subjudice. We pointed out that AIPAEA was not a party in any of these cases. It was then assured by the Sr DDG (PAF)  that this issue will first be informally taken up  with cadre controlling authority and with her concurrence move the proposal for the same. We also demanded special audit of the LDCE examination of AAO cadre held in July 2018, as scores of irregularities have been noticed. They agreed to conduct appropriate enquiry into the cases brought to their notice and against whom complaints are made. In view of the meeting and the positive approach of Authorities, the fourth phase of our agitation of one day Dharna on 19th February 2019, stands deferred.


          CHQ conveys it’s revolutionary greetings to all the Circle leadership for successfully conducting the two days National Strike. As reported by the Circle Secretaries the strike was better than all the previous strikes with youngsters taking active part in the strike. Strike was near total in circles of Jaipur, Cuttack, Hyderabad, Guwahati & Trivandrum and above 70% at Kolkata, Chennai & Sundernagar. At Nagpur also a very good strike was observed this time and in the Northern States also there was improvement in strike as compared to previous strikes. It is urged to Circle leadership to reach to the common members and educate them the issues for which we are fighting and prepare them for further struggles in future.
