To,
Sh. S. Ramesh,
Chairman, CBIC,

Sub: Transfers & postings of Asstt. Commissioners.
Sir,
            Your kind attention is invited to the Office Orders numbered 107/2018 and 108/2018 both Dt. 03.07.18 of CBIC alongwith the letter Ref. No. 174/AIB/T/18 Dt. 09.07.18 of the Association.
            2. Further, the following submissions are made with due regards for due redressal:
            (i) The transfer policy has not been followed as there exist many deviations from the policy.
(ii) The officers are very much demoralised due to the deviations and non-consideration of their requests which will affect their professional abilities, further hampering the performance.
(iii) Whereas many recently promoted Asstt. Commissioners with more than 3 years of service have been allowed to continue at the existing station/zone (which is really a very good thing), many of the officers retiring within 3 years have not been brought to their requested stations. The policy says that the officers who have 3 or less years of service left shall be posted to the station/region of their choice.
(iv) Genuine compassionate grounds including medical ones of self as well as family members have not been given due consideration.
            (v) The policy being followed in 2017 & 2018 is totally different from the policy followed in 2014.
            (vi) The postings in Directorates have been made based on recommendations instead of following the policy.
            (vii) The policy says about the change of station whereas the zones have been changed.
            3. It is also worth to mention that these officers have been promoted against the temporary posts of the Asstt. Commissioner with the clause of “no further promotion” and also not being included in the recruitment rules. The officers didn’t get the benefit of even a single paisa on being promoted against these posts at the fag end on account of already working in the same pay scale. Many of them rather forced to get less emoluments on account of being transferred to the cities with less HRA. Due to this reason, a good number of the officers preferred to forgo the promotion against these posts and many are forced to plan to be voluntarily retired.
4. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly review the transfer orders with the due sympathy particularly giving due consideration to the representations/willingness of the officers.
            Thanking you,
Yours sincerely,


(RAVI MALIK),
Secretary General.

To,
The Cabinet Secretary,
President House, New Delhi.
Sub: Cadre Restructuring in CBIC.
Sir,      
            It is to submit with due regards that there exist the provisions only for the cadre restructuring for Group A’ as on date. Whenever the cadre review/cadre restructuring in any department, particularly in Central Board of Indirect Tax & Customs (CBIC) is done, the interests only of Group ‘A’ are looked after.    
2. This practice of looking after the interests only of Group ‘A’ is prevalent perhaps due to the fact that there exist no provisions for the cadre review for Group ‘B’ or ‘C’ which are required to be formulated as the urgent need of the time. No need to submit that the main purpose of a cadre review/cadre restructuring is to restructure a cadre in such a way as to remove the deficiencies which might be existing at the time of the constitution of a service or have crept-in subsequently and ensure that the cadre structure satisfies the functional, structural and personnel considerations. It provides an opportunity to overcome various bottlenecks, remove existing distortions and bring about rationalisation of cadre structure so as to improve the efficiency and morale of the cadre officers as well as to avoid promotional blocks and also to harmonise the functional needs with the legitimate career expectations of cadre members and thereby, enhance the effectiveness of the service in the fulfilment of the objectives for which it has been established.
            3. Unfortunately, no such process of cadre review/cadre restructuring has ever been observed particularly in the CBIC for Group ‘B’ or ‘C’ officers fulfilling the main purpose for these cadres as submitted under para 2 above. Here, the most of the officers joining as Inspector of Central Excise in Level-7 are forced to retire merely after one promotion at the post of Superintendent in Level-8 whereas their counterparts appointed in Level-7 including Customs, CBDT, CSS, RajyaSabha Secretariat etc. are easily being promoted to the Level-13 and Level-14.
4. It is also well pertinent to mention that it was approved and recommended by the Cabinet in 2013 at the time of last cadre restructuring of CBIC to bring a scheme for Group ‘B’ Central Excise executive officers independent of cadre restructuring to remove their stagnation but unfortunately, nothing has been done till date even after the expiry of around five years.
5. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly take necessary steps-
(a) For the cadre review/cadre restructuring particularly for the officers who join/have joined the CBIC as Inspector of Central Excise to fulfill the main purpose as submitted under para 2 above alongwith the cadre review/cadre restructuring of the Group ‘A’.
(b) Also formulate the provisions for the cadre review/cadre restructuring for Group ‘B’ and ‘C’ in general enabling them to reach top levels.
(c) To implement the recommendations of the Cabinet to bring a scheme for Group ‘B’ Central Excise executive officers to reach them Level-13 & 14 like other counterparts before the processing of the current cadre restructuring in CBIC.
            Thanking you, 
                                                                                                                                                   Yours sincerely,


(RAVI MALIK),
Secretary General.
