          Sri S.Dutt Majumder,
          Chairman, Central Board of Excise & Customs,
          Department of Revenue, Ministry of Finance,
          North Block, New Delhi.

          Sub: Victimisation of office bearers of Association at Indore – Reg

          I wish to bring to your notice a blatant case of victimisation of an office bearer of this Association in Indore Commissionerate.
          As per the extant transfer policy in Indore Commissionerate, office bearers of the recognized association would be posted at Headquarter Office station. This policy is also in line with the DOP&T instruction in the matter of posting of office bearers of recognized staff associations.
          The Commissioner of Central Excise & Customs, Indore vide Establishment Order No. 80/2010 dated 02.12.2010 ordered for transfer of Shri. Amitabh Vijayavargia, President, All India Central Excise Inspectors’ Association, Indore Branch and Central Executive Committee member of All India Central Excise Inspectors’ Association from Indore to Gwalior which is 500 kms away. Immediately on issuance of the order, the local association took up the matter with the Commissioner, Indore and Chief Commissioner, Bhopal pointing out that –

i)                   the transfer is in violation of policy in this regard;
ii)                this is a clear case of victimisation of office bearer of a recognized Association;
iii)              the transfer is without bonafides and on extraneous reasons; and
iv)              the transfer is in the middle of the academic year

          Owing to the pendency of the representation, the transfer order was not acted upon and Shri. Amitabh Vijayavargia was not relieved till 03.02.2011. However on 04.02.2011, Shri. Amitabh Vijayavargia was relieved from his postings even prior to the disposal of the representation.

          The Central Executive Committee of All India Central Excise Inspectors’ Association in its recent meeting at New Delhi on 5th of February resolved to request you to issue urgent instructions to Commissioner, Indore to cancel the transfer order of Shri. Amithab Vijayavarghia  and post him to Indore . It is also resolved to inform you that in case this injustice is allowed to continue, All India Central Excise Inspectors’ Association would be forced to launch agitations through out the country.

          In anticipation of a favourable decision, I remain

Dated  09.02.2011                                                                             Yours faithfully

                                                                                              KOUSIK ROY
