F. No. AICEIA/CBEC/CR/2014/42                        Date: 10.02.2015    


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 05.08.2014, 20.08.2014, 28.10.2014, 07.11.2014, 18.11.2014 and 07.01.2015 on various subjects and Board’s letter F.No.A-23018/8/2014-Ad.IIB dated 20.01.2015 vide which we have been informed that the date of promotion will be reckoned as the actual date, except in special circumstances.
        In this context, it is submitted that the Board has earlier fixed the date 30.09.2014 as unified date for promotion to the grade of Superintendent against new posts created in the CR.  This step was taken to prevent disparity in All India Seniority List of the Superintendents.  Later, the consequential vacancies of Superintendent were also created on account of promotion of Superintendent to AC JTS on 22.10.2014 in various CCAs.  But the different CCAs conducted DPCs to the grade of the Superintendent on different dates.  Hence, fixing of unified date at a time and different dates of promotion afterwards will not serve any purpose.  Further, this will lead to irreparable loss of seniority to the Inspectors on promotion to the grade of Superintendent.  It is once again requested to consider and fix the unified date of Promotion for the consequential vacancies.
         Sir, despite our repeated requests, the DPC has not been conducted in Central Excise Zone, Chennai and Mumbai against the consequential vacancies.  It is, therefore, requested to order:-
1.      the Cadre Controlling Authorities of Chennai and Mumbai 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.
      It is also to intimate that some CCAs are giving promotion to the grade of the Superintendent on “adhoc” basis whereas in some zones on “regular” basis. The adhoc promotion leads to loss of seniority and pay related benefits.  It is, therefore, requested to order the concerned CCAs to give promotion on “regular” basis for maintaining the uniformity in promotion and avoiding any loss of seniority. 
         Thanking you.                                                                                     
Yours faithfully,

               Abhishek Kamal     
Secretary General
