All these promotions will take effect from 30th September,2014. All these promotions will be treated as in-situ till the Board notifies the effective date for all the new formations.

III. Meeting of AIACEGEO, Hyderabad Zone with CC-Hyderabad, C-I and C-II:
We from AIACEGEO, Hyderabad Zone met CC, Hyderabad and Commisisoner-I yesterday and submitted our letters giving our associations views and suggestions in terms of resolutions passed in the EGBM for amending./replacing the IZT Policy,2013 and ICT Policy,2013 before implementation of CR.
CC and C-I have promised us that we will be called for consultations after they go through our views and suggestions.
IV. Repatriation of all the officers of Hyderabad Zone working in Vizag Zone:
At present there are around 140 Superintendents of Hyderabad Zone falling in four categories working in Vizag Zone.
Officers who are posted in 2012 on promotion, officers who are posted in 2013 on promotion, officers who are posted in 2014 on promotion and officers who are posted in AGT,2014 on rotation.
CC has told us that she has not taken a call on it and that as far as possible she will go as per the provisions of the existing IZT Policy but promised to intimate us before a decision is taken. However, since the request of the officers working in Vizag Zone for premature repatriation to Hyderabad Zone is quite genuine and legitimate, though the Association in terms of EGBM has taken a stand that only tenure completed officers should be repatriated during CR, we have told the administration that if they want to repatriate these officers, such repatriation should be done subject to placement of their Zonal seniority on top. However, detailed discussions will be held with the Administration later on all matters including repatriation.
However, C-1 is categorical that only tenure completed officers will be brought during CR implementation.
However, officers who have completed or completes two years tenure by the time of issuance of Transfer/Promotion Orders during October/November,2014 will be repatriated. We have suggested the cut-off date for completion of two years tenure as 30-11-2014.
All the officers who are promoted or posted before amendment or replacement of the existing IZTP,2013 with IZTP,2014 will be governed by the provisions of the IZTP,2013. As such, all the reduced tenure completed officers will have to make options for reduced tenure and submit their representations to CC-Hyderabad through proper channel. The option also includes foregoing of TA/DA and Table posting for one year in Hyderabad Zone.
V. Buildings and Infrastructure in Hyderabad Zone:
Commissioner-II is entrusted with searching and finalisation of buildings for Audit Commissionerate and Service Tax Commissionerate.
We met him yesterday and he has told us that advertisements inviting Tenders for new buildings of Audit and Service Tax Commissionerates have already been issued and Tenders will be opened very shortly.
We requested him to ensure that the new buildings are well equipped with all facilities including sufficient parking space. We also requested him to ensure that new buildings are located near to the HQRS Office at Basheerbagh. He has promised us that Tenders have been called for nearby building of Basheerbagh only and that due care will be taken in selecting the buildings.
Commissioner-II has said that the administration is prepared to spend upto Rs. 45 to Rs. 50/- per SFT for new buildings if CPWD accepts.
AIACEGEO, Hyderabad Zone has already requested the DG-HRD, CC-Hyderabad and C-I to provide all the infrastructural facilities including office space to the Superintendents as per the Boards Infrastructure Manual, for which they have responded positively.
