F. No. AICEIA/CBEC/CR/2014/37                                                   Date: 29.12.2014
The Chairman,
Central Board of Excise & Customs,
North Block,
New Delhi-110 001.

Subject: - Convening of DPC for promotion of Inspectors to the Grade of the Superintendent of Central Excise and protection of Seniority - Reg.
       Please refer to our letters dated 28.10.2014, 07.11.2014 and 18.11.2014 under captioned subject, "Fixation of single unified date of promotion across all Cadre Controlling Zones - request reg".

          Your kind attention is invited on the fact that the DPC for promotion to the grade of Superintendent has not been convened in Central Excise & Service Tax, Chennai Zone and Mumbai Zone against the vacancies created due to promotion from the grade of the Superintendent, Central Excise to the grade of Assistant Commissioner, Central Excise & Customs vide Office Order No. 192/2014 dated 22.10.2014 issued by CBEC.  

         Sir, the inordinate delay in convening the DPC in Chennai Zone and Mumbai Zone has caused undue mental agony to several Inspectors of both zones.  It is established fact that the cadre of Inspector in Central Excise is the most stagnated cadre in any of the Central Government departments and delay in promotion affects moral of the cadre.        
        The DPC for the promotion of Inspector to the grade of the Superintendent has already been conducted in almost all the zones of Central Excise.  It is, therefore, requested to order:-

1.      the respective Cadre Controlling Authorities to conduct the DPC on priority basis and without further delay.
2.   to protect the seniority in the grade of the Superintendents, of those Inspectors, who have been badly affected due to these inordinate delays.
          Thanking you.                                                       
Yours faithfully,

Abhishek Kamal
Secretary General
