"Intensified agitation" and CBDT's response

JCA has intensified it's agitation including non submission of statistical reports and not participating in search and survey operation.
As a result of agitation conducted by the JCA, chairman CBDT invited Central JCA for a meeting on 27.05.17where most of the demands have been addressed positively and Chairman asked JCA to withdraw the agitation but JCA leadership asked for official publication of assurances given in form of minutes of the meeting. It may be so because in the past lots of assurances were given but  very few did actually materialize. Sometimes members asked about the credibility of leaders. So this time leaders chose to be extra cautious.
Details of the meeting as procured from  JCA sources :
