To

The Presidents/General Secretaries,

All the Units/Circles of ITGOA/ITEF,

Members of ITGOA/ITEF.

Comrade,

Sub:     The issues discussed in the QRM dated 21-07-2015.

The Quarterly Review Meeting of the Joint Council of Action with the Chairperson, CBDT was held on 21-07-2015 at New Delhi. Detailed discussions were made on all the agenda items given by the JCA and outcome on each item is narrated as under:

Item No. 1                                                    

A.     ITO to ACIT for the left-out vacancies of R.Y. 2013-14 and entire vacancies of R.Y.s 2014-15 and  2015-16.

The Official side accepted that the Board has failed in keeping its promises in finalising the calculation of vacancies, as assured in various official meetings in last 5 months, due to the complications in the matter and as the JCA was not ready to accept the 180 number of promotions for the R.Y.s 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16. The staff side expressed that the issue was discussed at length with the Board in last 5 months and submissions of JCA/ITGOA were submitted time and again. It was also told that it was the CBDT to take a call in regard to the number of vacancies to be filled up immediately or the JCA would be compelled to go back to its members to decide on the course of agitation. The Chairperson directed the DGIT (HRD) and the JS (Admin.) to complete the file work of vacancy calculation within a week’s time and she assured that the Board would take the decision on the number of promotions to be held immediately thereafter.

 B.   Regularization of JCIT of 2002 Batch.

The matter is still pending with UPSC from October, 2014. The official side stated that the Board was regularly pursuing the issue of holding DPC for last 09 months, but the UPSC did not hold the DPC yet, on various objections. The recent objection of the UPSC has been addressed and the file is with the UPSC for DPC.

 C.   Promotion in STS of 2006/2007 & 2008/2009 batches with retrospective effect.

The ACsIT of 2006 & 2007 batch were promoted to the DCIT cadre on 20.06.2012 & 17.10.2012 respectively, which were otherwise due w.e.f. 01.01.2011 & 01.01.2012 respectively. Similarly DCIT promotions of 2008/2009 batches were also late. This was adversely affecting to their JCIT promotion since the length of service in the DCIT cadre was the criteria for that. The matter had been resolved as the DoPT had given relaxation to the officers promoted on 20.06.2012 & 17.10.2012 for their adhoc promotions to JCIT cadre w.e.f. 01.04.2015 and 01.04.2016 retrospectively for the promotions to the JCIT cadre on ad-hoc basis. On demand from the staff side, the Official side declared the screening committee meeting for ad-hoc promotion of 2006 batch would be on 28-07-2015. The deficiencies in APARs of most of the officers in the promotion zone have already been eradicated. A few left-out cases have been intimated to the General Secretaries of the respective Units on 21.07.2015 for expeditious completion of APAR. The staff side also demanded that the option might be asked from the officers in the promotion zone and the CBDT agreed to it. As per the decision, the Data Base cell has already opened the window inviting options of such officers.

Item No. 2

(i)   Relaxation of eligibility condition to fill up posts in higher cadre of AO/PS.

In this subject, the Presidents/General secretaries of all the Units of ITGOA are requested to send the details of officers available in cadres of AO, Grade-III and AO, Grade-II along with their length of service so that the CHQ can suggest the required amount of relaxation to the Board.
