From all accounts, Inspectors and also staff and officers from other cadres of the CBEC participated in the 26.09.2012 Agitation in huge numbers at scores of Central Excise and Customs offices all across the country. In Punjab, West Bengal, Kerala, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Karnataka, Gujarat, the North East, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and other states the Agitation has been a great success. Very satisfying is the fact that Inspectors from Delhi and Mumbai participated actively and spontaneously in this programme, thanks to the initiative taken by the leadership at the two places.

Thanks are due to Com Jayaseelan C, General Secretary, Karnataka Circle of the AICEIA for putting together the above collage.
The AICEIA has again written to the CBEC on the need to urgently resolve issues concerning transfer of Inspectors from one Cadre Control Zone to another, and also on matters relating to DPCs, also highlighting the fact that the DPC exercise for effecting promotion of Inspectors to Superintendents against vacancies arising out of recent promotions of Superintendents as ACs has not yet been undertaken in Mumbai and Shillong . These and other most important issues like steps required to address the acute stagnation that Inspectors in most Zones face shall be shortly taken up with the CBEC at the top level by the AICEIA office bearers.
The next Convention of the AICEIA will be held at Patna on 16th and 17th of December 2012. Delegates may make travel arrangements accordingly. Notice in this respect shall be issued soon.
