In the last Circle Working Committee Meeting of AIAIASP, Odisha Circle Branch held on 05.12.2010 deliberation was held on the following important points along with other points and resolution was passed as under:
- The Department is sleeping over the proposal of upgradation of GP of IPs to Rs.4600/- taking CAT case filed by an ASP(and another) on individual capacity as the pretext. The applicant in the OA is not even a member of AIAIASP. Govt's intention of denying the benefit as an act of step-motherly attitude to IP line officials is very much evident from the stand taken in Counter Affidavit in the CAT case. The Govt. has not only opposed the OA tooth and nail but has presented its stand by twisting the facts to suit its ill-intention. In such circumstances, exhibition of resentment of the IP cadre in a persistent and continued manner by way of wearing black badge in the first week of every month is considered as one of the appropriate means. Resolution was passed to follow it in Odisha Circle with due notice to Circle Administration and to place suggestion before the CHQ to consider adopting and following it at all-India basis.
- The Department is extracting arduous nature of work in shape of invigilation duty from Inspectorial staff by paying them a paltry sum towards remuneration (honorarium) . The rate fixed 3 decades ago has remained unchanged and unrevised which is no more acceptable. On appeal from AIAIASP, the members in Odisha Circle have refused to take payment of the honorarium. Resolution was passed to inform the Heads of Circle/Regions/Divisions about the fact of refusal to take payment of the homnorarium by our members and to request Circle head to get the rate revised at par with the remuneration being paid by Staff Selection Commission at the earliest, failing which the members would consider absenting themselves from invigilation duty.
- Merger of IP & ASP cadres is acceptable to facilitate upgradation of GP of IPs to Rs.4600/- w.e.f 01.01.2006. CHQ may pursue the proposal with the Govt. to get the enhanced GP at the earliest. The Association should ensure that the accepted GP enables the IPs to reach at the level of RS.5400/- at least on financial upgradation under MACP III.
