CIRCULAR-25

15/1089-90, VASUNDHARA, VASUNDHARA (P.O.), Dt. GHAZIABAD (U.P), PIN-201012

Reference: AIA/Circular-25/2013                                                             Dated: 29th November 2013

To
Unit Secretaries,
Members & Spl. Invitees – NE &
Members of Women’s Committee

The National Executive Committee of the Association in its meeting held on 24-25 July 2013 had decided to have visits by a team of NE members to various stations to reactivate the organisation from the grass root level. The visits to various stations are over. The visit to few stations had to be rescheduled due to certain unexpected situations.

The National Executive would meet on 11-12 December 2013 at New Delhi to chalk out the next phase in the efforts to revitalise the organisation.

The Units where the visits are over are requested to send a report to the CHQ on their experience during the visit of the All India leaders, its impact on the organisation and the follow up they had on their own to these visits. The report should reach the CHQ by 8th December 2013.

Case Filed

The National Executive Committee had also decided to file case in the Pr CAT on the issue of difference in pay of promotee vis-à-vis direct recruitees. The same has been filed in the Pr CAT, New Delhi. The operating part of the OA has already been mailed to all.

The case came up for admission today and the court has ordered issuance of notice to the respondents. The case has been posted for 23rd January 2014.

The CHQ has sent a request to all the units to remit Rs 1000/ per head towards meeting the cost of litigation (collecting from those who are deprived of the pay of the direct recruitees on promotion). Some Units have already remitted, while majority of the units are yet to comply with it. All the Units are requested to remit the amount so collected without further delay.

SAS/RA exam
We have been continuously pursuing the twin issues of negative marking in the exams as well number of chances for SAS exam.

As far as number of chances in the examination is concerned, the department has now increased the number of chances to 10, limiting this benefit to those who have got exemption or those who have passed atleast 5 papers. We welcome this. This has given relief to many a candidate who otherwise would have been left high and dry. We will continue our efforts for 10 chances without strings. (Copy of the Circular was mailed to all Units on the very next day of issue of the circular).

As regards discarding of negative marks, the departmental authorities have not shown any inclination to accede to our demand. We will be continuing with our efforts.

Arrears on Pay Parity (1996 - Feb 2003)

The case won the employees of Railway Accounts, Thiruvananthapuram has been implemented by the Railway Board only in respect of those six persons who had approached the court. The Apex JAC met on 27th November 2013 and decided for agitational programmes on charter of demands including payment of arrears as per court order.

The JAC has decided to organise lunch hour demonstration on 19th December 2013 in all offices and day long dharna by the Executive Committee members on 29th January 2014 followed by massive Dharna at Jantar Mantar in the last week of February 2014 or 1st week of March 2014. The National Executives of all the constituent organisations would hold a joint meeting on 11th January 2014 at New Delhi. 

We endorse the decisions taken by the Apex JAC and call upon every unit to implement the programmes. The charter of demands finalised by the Apex JAC is given in the enclosed JAC Circular 05-2013.

With greetings,
Yours fraternally
