                              DAY LONG MASS DHARNA ON 8-5-2012
Dear comrades,

The insensitive attitude of CBDT has forced us to embark on agitation. On 22nd March, the Central JCA served a letter on CBDT, requesting  for immediate steps to resolve grievances contained in 16 point common charter of demands. It was specifically requested to hold meeting with JCA leaders to settle issues within a month.  The Board, as usual ignored that letter. Another letter filed on 16th April  has also been ignored.  Absolutely  there are no efforts to redress our grievances. Sadly, the Chairman has refused to meet  ITGOA leaders even for a few minutes to discuss urgent issues.  This total careless attitude of CBDT  towards the promotee Officers and Staff has compelled us to tread the path of agitation. As a first step, day long MASS DHARNA will be staged on 8TH May in all CCIT/ CIT stations and a telegram to Chairman, CBDT to hold talks with JCA leaders will be sent .

  1. The ITEF was always lead by some Steno leaders, even though the strength of the union (about 85%) were ministerial cadres. They always made the authorities as well as the mainstream cadres tight-lipped to pave their way ahead with their own agenda. The Board and DoPT never wanted to include technical cadres in the feeder grades for promotion as Inspectors. Still they managed till now grabbing the post of Inspectors with 1985 Recruitment Rules ?! Even without a move from the mainstream cadres, the Board amended the ratio of ministerial cadres and stenos (3:1 to 4:1) excluding Steno-Gr-III from the feeder cadres in 2003. Again the Steno leaders, illegally, got it amended to continue the 1985 RR.
    This reveals the dormant condition of the mainstream cadres and leaders. Creeping into the cadre restructuring committee, they are trying to FOOL the ministerial cadres ! Now all cadres bearing GP 4200 are being merged to form ‘Executive Assistant’. We must understand that the post of AO will also be stolen from us along with Inspector post. But there must be only mainstream cadres in the feeder cadre for promotion as Inspectors and Administrative Officers. If this demand cannot be implemented, better keep off from the association – don’t get be-fooled anymore! Don’t be under mental slavery of some steno leaders anymore!

  2. Dear Comrade Purshothaman!
    If you would objectively look what the ITEF has collectively achieved till now, you'll perhaps restrain yourself from introducing biased attitude in unionism. It is a tragedy that one the members of the ITEF (I sincerely assume you are one) brings up divisive issues, after the leaders have rendered decades of unfettered service to the IT non gazetted staff fraternity. 'Steno Leader' or any other Leader does not matter as long as the organisation remains intact so as to retain and take further the cause of collective bargaining. 'Steno Leader' or any other leader, does not matter as long as the organisation is strong and it achieves the desired objectives. And what is this 'mainstream cadres'? Isn't every member of the ITEF from a mainstream? Kindly refrain from 'dividing' the ITEF on trivial issues.

    Thanks & Regards

    PS: I am not from the 'Steno Cadre'.
