Sub: Agitational Programme for not acceding the demand of upgradation of Grade Pay of Inspector Posts from Rs 4200 to Rs 4600
Ref: Our letter No.CHQ/IPASP/SCPC dated 23-12-2010
I invite your kind reference to my earlier letter of even number dated 23.12.2010 (copy attached) in which our Association raised the issue regarding upgradation of Grade Pay of the post of IP and merger of posts of ASP with IP.
A discussion in detail took place between the representatives of the Association and DDG (Estt.) on 05.04.2010. The Department was convinced about the justified GP of Rs 4600/-. As no positive action was forthcoming, reminders were given to the DOP on 24.06.2010, 09.08.2010 & 07.09.2010. Even then, the Department is indifferent to this issue. All the members of this Association are deeply aggrieved and agitated over the discrimination meted out to Inspector Posts cadre.
It is for your kind information that members of Inspector Posts cadre are law-abiding, peace loving and ever loyal to the Department. We don’t believe in extreme steps like “Dharna” “Strike” etc. It is unfortunate that the Department is considering favourably the demands of the service unions which often threaten with notice to strike work. But, genuine and justified demands of Inspector Posts cadre are not listened and looked into by the Department. As a result, our Association has been forced to show its protest in a peaceful and democratic manner.
As I have already informed in my letter cited in the reference, all Inspectors Posts and Assistant Superintendents Posts of this Association, working all over the country, as guided by the Central Working Committee will show our protest against the indifferent attitude/ injustice done to Inspector Posts cadre as per programme given below:
(1) Wearing of black badges for one day on 18.03.2011
(2) Demonstration before Circle Head Quarters on 08.04.2011
(3) Proceeding on mass casual leave for one day on 29.04.2011
Thank you, Madam.
