Sri. Gopinath M.K.

The person who has led the historical agitation in Central Excise Department in 1984 has been finally given the legitimate and inevitable promotion by Central Government on interference of the Honourable Central Administrative Tribunal, Kochi. Shri M. K. Gopinath, when he was working as Inspector of Central Excise in Cochin in 1984 led a historic and hilarious agitation under the banner of Joint Action Council of Kerala Central Excise Officers’ Association against the atrocities of the then administration of the Central Excise Department which culminated in a bilateral agreement and is regarded as a significant achievement of the Central Excise Staff organisation. Being the convener of the Joint Council Sri M. K. Gopinath was awarded an adverse entry in his confidential reports by an Officer not authorised to record such an entry which has denied his due promotions at various levels namely Superintendent, Assistant Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, Joint Commissioner and Additional Commissioner in time. These promotions were delayed on account of the personal vendetta against this Officer by the department for his sincere organisational activities. Though he has approached the department and also the President of India against this action he was not given any relief by the government during that period. Subsequently he approached the Honourable Central Administrative Tribunal, Kochi and the Tribunal finally ordered the government to grant all the promotions due to him in time. He has been finally promoted to the post of Additional Commissioner w.e.f January 2010 by the Honourable Finance Minister today with all consequential benefits.

He has held various capacities in the Inspector and Superintendent Federations as General Secretary and President and Senior Vice President of the All India Superintendent’s Federation. It is worth mentioning that he is the son of Late Vaikom Kumara Panicker, who was a leading freedom fighter and 10th President of the State Congress and recipient of Tamra Pathra from Government of India.
