Letter submitted during the meeting:-

F.No. AICEIA/CBEC/CR/2014/                                                    Date: 17.10.2014

The Member (P&V),
Central Board of Excise & Customs,
Department Of Revenue,
Ministry of Finance,
Government of India,
New Delhi-110 001.


                Sub: Non-Redressal of the Issues of Regional Disparity and All India                                                                                         Seniority List of Inspectors of Central Excise During Cadre Restructuring in CBEC.

                Please refer to the subject mentioned above.

                In this regard, your kind attention is invited to the fact that despite regular, numerous and continuous submissions and persuasions made by this Association, Cadre Restructuring in CBEC has been rolled out without giving any concern to the captioned issues. It is hard to understand for this Association the logic, legal bindings and concerns for which the Cadre Restructuring has been rolled out.

              This self-convincing and unilateral step of CBEC has lead to a situation where Cadre Restructuring has resulted in the following anomalies:-
1.  The regional disparity in promotion to the grade of the Superintendent, Central Excise increased drastically among different CCAs of Central Excise.
2.    Officers who got selected with higher merit will be placed junior to the officer who were at the bottom of the same select list.
3.    Officer who got selected prior will be placed junior to the officers selected in the subsequent examinations.
4.    Due to outcome of the point no. 2 & 3, there will be  a clear disagreement with the DOP&T OM no. 22011/7/86-Estt.(D) dated 3-7-86 para 2.1.
5.      There could have been a streamlined solution of permanent nature, but, now it has resulted in so many litigations.
6.      Even the minimum concerns like allocating the Audit Commissionerates for LTUs of the Stagnated Zones which is indifferent of geographical boundaries were not done.
7.    The officers whose ICT options for zones with better promotion zones  was granted by the authority will be promoted before officers whose ICT was not granted or not applied due to no fault of theirs.
8.   There will be a mad race for ICT for the zones where there are  too  many posts of Superintendents Central Excise but insufficient eligible Inspectors of Central Excise to get promotion.
9.  One Study Group formed by CBEC to study the stagnation in Group-B Executive Cadre has yet to submit its report when the the Cadre Restructuring has already been given effect to.

        In view of aforementioned submissions, your goodself is requested to make an early and suitable direction to the competent authority to make remedial action for above sited unwarranted situation.

            Thanking you in anticipation,

Yours faithfully,
Anupam Neeraj
