Many leading economists of our country were of the views that India needs government employees more than the existing with decent pay packages for effective governance and they were expecting that the 7th CPC will recommend better pay prospects to central government employees to ensure better governance. The 7th Central Pay Commission headed by Justice Sh. A K Mathur submitted its report to the Finance Minister Sh. Arun Jaitley on 19.11.2015.  All sections of Indian media started propagating it as a big bonanza for central government employees and analyzing its effect on the Indian economy but in their analysis they forgot to analyze the Commission's failure in granting justified pay scale, better career prospects, addressing genuine grievances of the employees etc.  Despite many positive assurances by the Commission in the meeting with AICEIA, the Commission did not address our genuine demands.  Thus, the All India Central Excise Inspectors' Association marks this recommendation as DISAPPOINTING and WORST RECOMMENDATIONS EVER. 
Comrades,  the Central Pay Commission failed to address the genuine grievances of the our cadre but we should keep in our mind that this recommendation of the 7th CPC is not final and it is subject to modification based on the impact and objections and responses of both sides i.e. Central Government and Staff Associations/Unions/Federations.  So, it is high time and we should keep our self ready for any type of Agitations/Strikes/Demonstrations etc. to address the insensitiveness of the Commission towards our cadre and get justice from the government. 

In the backdrop of these events, all the Branches/Circles of AICEIA are requested to be prepared for any type of Agitations/Strikes/Demonstrations etc. on very short notice.


Yours fraternally,

Abhishek Kamal

The National JCA has decided to defer the Indefinite Strike slated from 23rd November, 2015 to a date during budget session of the parliament.  Further, the NJCA decided to call a massive protest demonstration in front of all offices on November 19th 2015 by wearing black badges.

We, being the part of NJCA, also took the resolution in the Central Executive Committee Meeting of AICEIA at Ahmedabad to participate in the indefinite strike slated from 23.11.2015.  Since, the NJCA has deferred the Indefinite Strike and called for a massive protest deomonstration on 19.11.2015, we should also prepare for the demonstration.  All the Branches/Circles are requested to prepare for this demonstration and co-ordinate with the sister Associations/Federations for making this a grand success.

The Notice of the demonstration will be issued soon.
