Sir,
Kindly refer to your letter F.No.A-26017/237/2017-Ad.IIA Dt. 25.05.18 regarding pgportal grievance petition No. CBOEC/E/2018/01119 Dt. 28.03.18 in r/o Flexible Complementary/Dynamic Assured Career Progression Scheme for Superintendents.
2. The issue of at least five functional promotions to officers after joining as Inspector has already been recommended by the CBIC vide OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16 in r/o 7th CPC report which needs to be taken up seriously by our CBIC.
3. The study team constituted by the CBIC has taken no step till date on the issue even after the expiry of more than 4.5 years of the recommendations of the Cabinet/CRC/Cabinet Secretary to take extra measures to remove stagnation of group B Central Excise executive officers independent of cadre restructuring.
4. The temporary posts of Asstt. Commissioner have been created for a limited period with the clause of no further promotion. Even if these 2118 posts are further extended, our officers will not be able to get five promotions due to the clause of no further promotion after being promoted against these pots. Moreover, these posts have also not been included in the RRs. So, our officers will not be able to get adequate career progression on account of these posts.
5. If direct recruitment to Group A service can’t be less than 50%, the remaining 50% meant for promotions may kindly be made “post based instead of vacancy based” as our officers are always at loss on account of it being vacancy based. However, the DOPT has already asked that direct recruitment should not be more than 3% of the total strength. In such case, the remaining 47% may also kindly be attributed for the purpose of promotions. Reduction in the percentage of direct recruitment will also help to improve the stature of direct Group A service instead of affecting it adversely. This is the only reason that DOPT also asked to minimize the direct recruitment to the limit of 3% otherwise the officers of the same batch may be Additional Commissioner or Commissioner or Principal/Chief Commissioner or Member/Chairman.  
6. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly take necessary steps to bring Flexible Complementary/Dynamic Assured Career Progression Scheme or separate service or in-situ promotion scheme for Superintendents to grant them minimum five promotions after joining as Inspector. In the meantime, it is requested to implement the scheme granting in-situ promotion to the post of Asstt. Commissioner after completion of 20 years and to the post of Deputy Commissioner after completion of 25 years of service respectively after joining as Inspector as approved by the Board in the meeting of 18.02.11.

Sub: Reimbursement of brief case/bag/ladies purse.
Sir,
It is to submit with due regards that the reimbursement of office brief case/bag/ladies purse is allowed to the officers as per the DOPT OM D-21013/4/2012-Ad.II Dt. 15.05.12 as also reiterated vide Circular No. D-15014/3/2016-GAR Dt. 31.08.16 of the Deptt. of Revenue, Ministry of Finance. As per above OM of DOPT as well as Circular of Deptt. of Revenue, our Superintendents and Asstt. Commissioners are entitled for the reimbursement of Rs. 4000/- for the purpose.
2. But very unfortunately, the objections are being put by the PAO at some places like Vadodara for the want of departmental OM/Circular for the officers of CBEC/CBIC saying that these officers are not covered under the DOPT orders. At the most of other places, no objection is being raised by the PAO. As per the concerned PAO, the benefit can be given to our officers only after the issuance of the departmental Circular based on the DOPT OM. No need to say that such Circulars are needed to be issued on each and every matter as per the version of the concerned PAO as the authority of the nodal department has been challenged by the said PAO.
3. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly issue the due directions to the concerned PAO as the said office is also not ready to follow the clarification issued by the HRD wing off CBEC/CBIC vide letter F. No. 712/303/HRD/WF-I/2013/7454 Dt. 06.01.17.

Sir,
Kindly refer to your letter F.No.A-26017/237/2017-Ad.IIA Dt. 25.05.18 regarding pgportal grievance petition No. CBOC/E/2018/01086 Dt. 28.03.18.
2. Non-functional financial upgradation (NFU) has already been brought for Group A officers vide DOPT OM No. AB.14017/64/2008-Estt.(RR) Dt. 24.04.09 to grant them financial parity with their counterparts of IAS, the best placed Group A cadre. So, no need to say that bringing of NFU to grant financial parity to Group B officers with the best placed counterpart is also urgent need of time. CCA and duties & responsibilities are also different for Group A cadres but they have been granted NFU. Association has not compared Superintendent with CSS but asked for grant of NFU to bring financial parity with the best placed counterpart. Even otherwise, the Superintendents have been conferred with higher duties & responsibilities in comparison to any other counterpart including CSS. No need also to say that the CBIC has already recommended the grant of NFU for Superintendents at least on four occasions.
3. There are so many precedents of Group B gazetted officers being promoted directly to STS. There also exists precedent of promotion from GP of 6600/- to GP of 8700/- in CPWD. The promotion of Superintendent to STS as well as uniform promotional hierarchy across all departments/ministries has also already been recommended by CBIC which is urgent need of time as MACPS has been proved to be lossfull for our officers. As far as the question of the residency period is concerned, the same may be prescribed as per the DOPT OM No. AB-14017/61/2008-Estt.(RR) dt. 24.03.09.
4. Time limit for implementation of verdict given in OA No. 2323/2012 by the CAT has already expired which certainly invites contempt. The RRs are required to be reframed immediately prescribing the qualifying services in consonance of the DOPT OM No. AB-14017/61/2008-Estt.(RR) dt. 24.03.09 and having provision of automatic upgradation to higher grade on completion of one and half times of residency period as per the prayer of the Association.
5. You are silent in your reply on the issues like Time bound promotions/scales, Notional promotions, Creation of supernumerary posts, Creation of separate service, Direct promotion to higher posts, In-situ promotions, Batch to batch functional upgradation and Introduction of Flexible Complementary Promotion Scheme (FCS) or Dynamic Assured Career Progression Scheme (DACP).     
 6. The needful may kindly be done taking due consideration of the representations of the Association already made.

2. It is to submit with due regards that the Pay Commission is merely a recommending body. It is not necessary that the govt. employees can not be placed in the enhanced scales without the recommendations of the Pay Commission. The most burning example is of the DSP of CBI, the counterparts of the Superintendents, who were placed in the higher scale equivalent to group A retrospectively w.e.f. 01.01.86 vide the order of 1996 without any recommendation of the Pay Commission or any other expert body.

Madam,
                        Kindly refer to the submissions made on 08.06.18 in person.
           2. It is to submit with due regards that the DPC for the post of Asstt. Commissioner for the years 2016-17 and 2017-18 has already happened under your kind Chair. The Association is again grateful to your goodself for the same. A few more points as below were also submitted to your goodself for the due redressal on the occasion-
            (i) DPC for the post of Asstt. Commissioner for the transition year 2018.
(ii) Revival of in-situ promotion scheme as approved in Board meeting of 18.02.11.
(iii) Bringing a scheme for Central Excise/CGST executive officers benefitting the old as well as young generations.
(iv) Batch to batch Non Functional Financial Upgradation (NFU) to our officers to grant financial parity with the best placed counterparts of CSS etc.
(v) Flexible Complementary/Dynamic Assured Career Progression Scheme for Superintendents in accordance of the observation of CBEC under OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16 about the disparities in promotions that it is an alarming anomalous situation.
3. Your goodself was kind enough to assure the Association to do the needful regarding the above points saying that the issues relating to the CBIC would be redressed by the Board itself and the issues requiring to be sent to the concerned nodal department would be recommended to the same. It is to submit further that at least two very first issues of the above mentioned points can be resolved at the Board level itself.
4. In view of the above, it is requested to do the needful accordingly. The Association is very much hopeful that our officers would be able to get the benefit in r/o the above issues during your kind reign itself.
            Thanking you,

One more negative step by Sh. Manimohan & associates


Dear friends,
Namaste.
Each and every effort is being made to get the DPC for the post of Asstt. Commissioner done for the transition year 2018. Again very unfortunately as the Association came to know, Sh. Manimohan & associates have communicated to the CBIC that it would be contempt of the Supreme Court, if DPC is conducted beyond 2017-18. Their version is that the Supreme Court gave permission for the DPC for the years 2016-17 and 2017-18 only. Thus, they are thinking to take one more negative step against the interest of the cadre to go for contempt of the Supreme Court, if DPC is happened for the transition year 2018. It is really not known from where these persons are getting funds to fight against the interest of the cadre. They should know that the DPC is common interest of the cadre as every officer including all zones wants to be promoted. Not only it, the officers belonging to lower cadres also get benefit of the promotion if the officers belonging to higher cadre are promoted. Let us hope that the good sense would prevail one day but perhaps after making the irreparable loss to the cadre. 
Loving regards,
Ravi Malik,
