“On 23 Mar, the team APCSOA was verbally assured by the competent authority that some urgent issues of the Association would be resolved before 30  March 2023, but till today no visible initiatives have been taken to resolve the same,” the intimation letter said.

The Association, in its  earlier ultimatum dated 07 March informed the authorities that  “there is a growing feeling within the cadre, that the service matters pertaining to the cadre, as repeatedly raised by APCSOA from time to time is not been given due seriousness and urgency by the authority concern.”

The Association said that with no other options left, it is compelled to resort to democratic means for resolution of the officers’ issues.
