No. 2/2018-19

Dated, 9th July, 2018

The Presidents/General Secretaries
of all the Units/Circles of ITGOA and ITEF

Dear Comrades,
Sub : Long Pending issues & ongoing agitation – regarding

As decided earlier by the Central JCA to embark upon the path of agitation on various issues affecting the membership of the JCA from 17th May 2018, all the affiliated units have participated in the agitation programme and successfully completed the first phase of agitation. It was due to the unified agitation of the members of the JCA, the CBDT had invited the JCA for a discussion on 26th June 2018 on the charter of demands. Though the meeting lasted more than 2(two) hours but no such concrete/positive assurances were received from the Chairman, CBDT regarding resolving of the issues at the earliest. On 27th June 2018 the matter was discussed in the Central JCA meeting held at Civic Centre, Delhi. The meeting threadbarely discussed the outcome of the meeting with the Chairman, CBDT and was of the opinion to continue the ongoing agitation till the minutes of the meeting is made available to the JCA. It was further decided that on receipt of the minutes, further intensification of the agitation would be decided, if necessary.

As per the decision of the meeting, we have persuaded with the Authorities of the CBDT for issuing the minutes immediately but the same was till awaited. Moreover, we have also observed that some of the issues on which positive assurances were given by the Chairman, CBDT, there were no progress. Considering the impasse continuing in the Board on resolving the issues we have no other alternative but to intensify the agitation.

Accordingly, as per the decision of the Central JCA meeting dated 27th June 2018 authorising the Joint Convenors to suggest for the intensification of the agitation, it is now decided to mount Phase-II of our agitation from 23rd July 2018. It was further decided to submit the same to the Chairman, CBDT informing him about the intensification of the agitational programme if the issues did not get resolved by 20th July 2018. It was further decided to hold Press meet on 20th July 2018 by all the Circles/Units at their respective headquarters for wider publicity of the issues relating to genuine grievances of the officers and employees of the Department. A press note in this regard will be forwarded by Central JCA to all Circles/Units in due time. The Central JCA will also undertake mobilisation programme from 16th to 20th July, 2018 and all Unit leadership are requested for extensive campaigning in all offices of respective Regions for implementation of the following programme successfully.

The next phase of agitation will be as under :- JULY 2018 ONWARDS

1) Lunch Hour Demonstration on 23rd July, 2018 in all stations;

2) To boycott Income Tax Day on 24th July 2018 and observing Black Day by wearing Black Ribbons. The members of JCA will not participate in any meeting of the committee that may be constituted for organising this programme immediately after issuance of the Circular of JCA.

4) Half-a-day (from 2 PM) Walk Out on 28th August 2018.


One day Token Strike on 12TH September, 2018 by the members of the JCA. It was also decided that the Central JCA will meet again to take stock of the situation during the month of August, 2018. All the units of the JCA are requested to ensure implementation of the aforementioned agitational programme in case of non-settlement of the issues within 20th July 2018.

It was also decided that in many regions the local administration had constituted committees for celebration of the Income Tax Day on 24th July 2018. As we have already decided to boycott the Income Tax Day celebration hence we appeal to all our members who were nominated in the committees should not extend any co-operation in this respect. We are hopeful that with the cent percentage participation of all the units and members, the issues above will reach to a logical end.

With revolutionary greetings,

Yours fraternally,

Dress Code prescribed for Income Tax Employees

Dress Code prescribed for Income Tax Employees

Dated: 02.03.2018

Office Order

Reg: Dress Code prescribed for Income Tax Employees

The Income Tax Department strives to maintain a workplace environment that is well functioning and maintain high standard of conduct and decorum. As part of that effort, the Department requires employees to maintain a neat, clean and formal appearance that is appropriate for the workplace setting.

It if often seen that a large number of employees, especially the younger members of the department come dress casually for the office, which is unexpected of them.

All the Officers/Officials/ staff members should be attired in appropriate, formal, clean, modest and decent clothes. Casual and party attire should be strictly avoided during appearance in office. Any staff member who does not meet the attire, will be subject to corrective action and may be asked to leave the premises to change clothing.

This issues with the prior approval of the competent authority.

Grand Success of Income Tax Employees Strike held on 8.10.2015 – JCA Circular

Grand Success of Income Tax Employees Strike held on 8.10.2015 – JCA Circular

A-2/95, Manishinath Bhawan, Rajouri Garden, New Delhi-110 027

Joint Convenors :

Rupak Sarkar

Bhaskar Bhattacharya

No. N-1/2015-16

Dated: 09th October, 2015

The Presidents/General Secretaries,
Of all the Units of ITGOA and ITEF.

Dear Comrades,

Sub: The call for Agitation

A Red Salute to all the members of JCA for making the Strike on 08-10-2015 a grand success in the entire Tax-India. The reports of the whole-hearted participation of members of ITGOA and ITEF from all regions across the country are very encouraging. The agony and frustration of our members were expressed against the indifferent and partisan attitude of the CBDT towards the just demands of 97% of officers/officials of the Department in a very disciplined and organised manner making virtual closures of the Income Tax Offices in the entire country. The Joint Council of Action felt that the agitation programmes and strike action are in the national interest in as much as early resolution to the problems by the intervention of the political authority will bring about a conducive climate to concentrate on tax collection and other statutory duties of the Department and this fact was properly been taken into the notice of the print & electronic media all over the country.

We, on behalf of the Central JCA, once again congratulate the leaders of all the Units/Circles of ITGOA/ITEF for their herculean efforts that has ensured such a grand success to the said strike.

With fraternal greetings,

Yours comradely,

(Bhaskar Bhattacharya) (Rupak Sarkar)
Joint Convenors

All India Strike 2013 Latest News:Income Tax Employees all over the country will be going 2 days strike

All India Strike 2013 Latest News:Income Tax Employees all over the country will be going 2 days strike

All India strike on 20th & 21st February, 2013

The Income Tax Employees all over the country will be going 2 days strike action on 20th & 21st February, 2013, as per the call given by the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers. The strike is in pursuance of the 15-point charter of demands formulated by the Confederation and also in support of the common issues as per the Charter of demands submitted by the joint trade union movement of the country.

This historic 2-days strike action is going to be the biggest ever strike action of the Indian working class on the common issues arising out of the neo-liberal economic policies  being pursued by the UPA-II Govt. which has resulted in sky rocketing prices of essential commodities and withdrawl of subsidies provided to the poor and common man of this country. The Workers are being exploited in the name of contractorisation, privatisation and outsourcing. The Pension is being privatised with the introduction of new Pension scheme and allowing FDI in Pension. In such a situation the workers are left with no other alternative but to go on a united struggle to oppose these anti-people policies. We call upon all our members to ensure that the strike slated for 20th & 21st February, 2013 is made a total success.
