We all are aware that the most of us (barring a few) were retiring merely after single promotion in the career a few years ago after joining the post of Inspector of Central Excise. As a result of the efforts made by the Association, a stage has come that our officers are able to get at least two promotions in the career now. But unfortunately, a fight has also started to get promoted earlier than others resulting into stay on DPC for the post of Asstt. Commissioner. No doubt that every body has legal right to fight in one's interest. But as far as DPC is concerned, it should not be halted or stopped because a good number of our officers are retiring regularly on monthly basis without getting promotion.
No need to say that the promotions are to be affected on ad hoc basis. If there is any discrepancy, the same can be rectified at the time of regularization or on implementation of any legal verdict. During the pendency of any legal process, the promotion orders may be issued subject to the final outcome of the same.
But unfortunately, I came to know that some of our brothers are planning to get the DPC stayed. It is, therefore, requested to all concerned to kindly not get the DPC stayed because it would again result into the retirement of a good number of our officers without promotion despite of a good number of vacancies in hands. No need to say that the stay of DPC for the post of Asstt. Commissioner would also affect the promotions from the post of Inspector to Superintendent and also below Inspector level as the cascading vacancies are also to be filled-up by promotion of our brothers belonging to Inspector and Ministerial cadres. Any stay to DPC will also halt the promotions of equal number of officers at lower levels.
