"` Mass Dharna on 14th July, 2009
On the issue of the Departmental Examination, the ITEF leadership met the DIT(E) and demanded that Examination-2009 should be held under the old Rules and the new Rules should be introduced only from next year and in consultation with the ITEF. As there was no positive response from the DIT(E) we met the Member (P) who assured us to discuss the issue with the DG(Admn.). However, we were later informed over the telephone about their intention to proceed with the New Examination Rules without taking our suggestions/objections into consideration, from 2009 itself.
In the light of the above development we are of the considered opinion that only a strong trade union action will force the authorities to come to the negotiating table for a fruitful discussion on the issue.
It has therefore been decided to include this as one of the items of our Charter of demands for the ensuing agitational programme. We call upon all our Circles to ensure massive participation in the Dharna programme as per the decision of the CWC, which is scheduled for 14th July,2009 before all CCIT/CIT offices and make it a tremendous success.
(I) Assigning grade pay of Rs. 4600 as per Government of India notification to Inspectors, Private Secretaries and Administrative officers and Rs. 1800 to all Group D employees;
(ii) All employees are provided with mobile phone facility out of the infrastructure fund;
(iii) No outsourcing of any departmental functions, especially the return processing, as per the recommendations of the BPR report;
(iv) The BPR should not be acted upon without reaching an agreement with the ITEF
(v) All Group C employees be provided with desktop computers to facilitate and speed up the functions entrusted to them immediately.
(vi) Hold Deptl. Examination-2009 under old Rules and implement the new Rules from next year in consultation with ITEF."
