Sub: Cadre Review process.
Sir,      
            It is to submit with due regards that there exist the provisions only for the cadre review of Group A as on date. Whenever the cadre review/cadre restructuring in any department, particularly in Central Board of Excise & Customs (now Central Board of Indirect Tax & Customs) 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 time. No need to submit that the main purpose of a cadre review 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. Cadre review 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 has ever been observed particularly in Central Board of Excise & Customs (now Central Board of Indirect Tax & Customs) 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, Rajya Sabha Secretariat etc. are easily being promoted to the Level-13 and Level-14.
4. It is also well pertinent to mention that there is no direct recruitment at Group A entry level in the developed countries like UK, France etc. which is the only reason that Inspector or even lower level officers reach the top positions in these countries because of their interests being duly looked under cadre review/cadre restructuring.
5. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly take necessary steps for the cadre review particularly for the officers who joins/have joined the Central Board of Excise & Customs as Inspector of Central Excise to fulfill the main purpose as submitted under para 2 above alongwith the cadre review of the Group A and also formulate the provisions for the cadre review for Group B and C in general enabling them to reach top levels
            Thanking you, 
                                                                                                                                         Yours sincerely,

Sir,      
            It is to submit with due regards that the cadre review proposal for CBIC is to be submitted upto December’ 2018 as per DOPT OM issued vide F. No. I. 11019/9/2018-CRD Dt. 25.05.18. It is further to submit that the interests only of Group A are looked after, whenever the cadre review/cadre restructuring happens in the Central Board of Excise & Customs (now Central Board of Indirect Tax & Customs).  
2. No need to submit that the main purpose of a cadre review 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.

No need also to submit that the Group B and C officers are also the part and parcel of the service in our CBIC.
            3. But unfortunately, no such process of cadre review has ever been observed in Central Board of Excise & Customs particularly for Group B and C officers fulfilling the main purpose for these cadres as submitted under para 2 above.
4. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly take necessary steps for the cadre review particularly for the officers who joins/have joined the Central Board of Excise & Customs as Inspector of Central Excise to fulfill the main purpose as submitted under para 2 above alongwith the cadre review of the Group A

Dear Sir,
Kindly refer to the draft RRs of Central Excise Superintendents being circulated on social media as well as Ref. No. 144/AIB/P/18 Dt. 13.06.18 and Ref. No. 129/AIB/E/18 Dt. 28.05.18 (both addressed to you) of the Association alongwith others on RRs.
2. In the said draft RRs, the qualifying service for the promotion from Inspector to Superintendent has been mentioned as three years for field formations whereas it has been put only two years under the draft RRs meant for the Superintendents working in the Directorates under CBIC issued vide letter F.No. 10A12/1/2018-Ad.IIB Dt. 04.06.18. The Association has also been informed vide letter F.No. 10A60/28/2018-Ad.IIB Dt. 08.05.18 in response to CPGRAM registration No. CBOC/E/2018/01085 Dt. 28.03.18 that amendment in eligibility criteria to 2 years for promotion of Inspectors of Central Excise to Superintendent has been approved by DOPT.
3. Further, it will be a clear discrimination if the eligibility is made same not only for above both categories but also for Central Excise Inspectors, Preventive Officers and Examiners which is to be only 2 years as per the DOPT OM No. AB-14017/61/2008-Estt.(RR) Dt. 24.03.09.  
4. Inviting your kind attention to the verdict given in OA No. 2323/2012, the RRs are to be reframed to bring all the Inspectors (i.e. Inspectors of Central Excise, Preventive Officers and Examiners of Customs) recruited in a particular year through All India Combined Examination in parity to maintain the principle of equal opportunity & equality before law and to save the senior Central Excise officers from humiliation of working under their juniors of Customs belonging to the same cadre of Inspector in CBEC.
            5. Accordingly, it is requested to do the needful in the matter taking the due consideration of all submissions made by the Association on the issue.
            Thanking you,
Yours sincerely,

Sub: Grievance Petition of All India Association of Central Excise Gazetted Executive Officers-reg.
Sir,
Kindly refer to your letter F.No.A-26017/237/2017-Ad.IIA Dt. 25.05.18 regarding pgportal grievance petition No. PMOPG/E/2018/0143428 Dt. 30.03.18 in r/o Batch to batch Non Functional Financial Upgradation (NFU) to our officers to grant financial parity with the best placed counterparts of CSS etc.
2. The 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. As far as the CCA and duties & responsibilities are concerned, the same are also different for all Group A cadres. 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 of them 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. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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. 
7. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly take necessary steps to bring non-functional financial up-gradation (NFU) to Central Excise officers joining as Inspector at par with the best placed Group B counterparts of CSS etc. for the sake of justice at least to grant them financial parity and also 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.
            Thanking you,
Yours sincerely,

Central Government Employees can access ehrms.gov.in for personal information, leave, LTC, Loan / advance, Official Tour, E-Service Book and other Service related matters

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
An online platform has been launched for central government employees to apply for leave and access their service-related information, according to an official statement issued on Monday.
With launch of the website ehrms.gov.in, five bigger modules covering 25 applications have been launched. These are:
  • Personnel Information System– which has functionalities of self-updating by employees.
  • Leave- Leave of all kind may be claimed and sanctioned through website that will become part of service book.
  • LTC- All function related to LTC application, Eligibility Check, Sanction, Advance claim, Final reimbursements, Leave encashment.
  • Loan/Advances- All kind of loan and advances can be claimed, sanctioned and paid through it.
  • Tour: – All tour applications to be submitted through system and TA advance may also be claimed.
  • E-service book- Already launched on 30.03.2017, will also be integrated.
The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh launched the electronic-Human Resource Management System (e-HRMS). He launched it during the observance of Good Governance Day by the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions. The Minister launched the 25 applications of 5 modules of the system. The e-service book launched for DoPT during March this year will also be integrated into the e-HRMS.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Jitendra Singh said that Good Governance Day is observed to mark the birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. He said that under the leadership and inspiration of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the Government has taken various initiatives to attain the goal of ‘minimum government, maximum governance’.  He said that the launch of e-HRMS is also a step towards the ‘ease of governance’. The Minister further said that this is an initiative by which the technology will be put to the optimum use. The other departments and state governments will also follow this system in due course, he added.
The DoPT Secretary, Shri Ajay Mittal said that good governance is not a product, but a continuous process. This is the way by which maximum good can be done to the maximum people. He said that maximum efforts should be made to our capability and improvements should also be the part of the process.
Speaking on the launch of e-HRMS, Ms Neeta Verma, DG, NIC said that the software will give a comprehensive and combined view of the human resource deployed by the Government. She also said that it is a cost-effective initiative, thus sustainable in the long-term. It will also provide HR analytics for the Government, she added. She further said that it will help Government to post right man at right post, thus extract best of an employee.
With launch of e-HRMS, employees will be able to not only see all their details w.r.t service book, leave, GPF, Salary etc., but also apply for different kind of claims/reimbursements, loan/advances, leave, leave encashment, LTC advances, Tour etc. on a single platform.
Employees shall not be dependant for data updating on administration, but they may themselves update the data with their login subject to verification by concerned administration. They will be able to track status and match details instantly. The system is designed in a way to obtain all management related inputs/reports through its Dashboard and all pendency of data updating as well as claims will be seen online by senior authorities that will instil more responsibility and accountability among all government servants.
This is a step in the direction of fully automated Human Resource Management System with a target to bring all employees of Government of India on employee portal so that all processes of personnel management from hiring to retiring will be on digital platform and manual system of handling personnel management will be dispensed with.
This system has various advantages such as providing Dash board for employee and management, Updated service records, E-governance in office procedures, Reduced file movement, Faster service delivery, Assist in decision making, Common document repository of employees, Standardization of Master Data, Minimize manual entry of data, Ease of sharing information among stake holders, e-Sign for accountability/authenticity, PFMS and e-HRMS integration for faster payments of GPF, advances, Loans, reimbursements. This will reduce employee’s grievances to a certain extent. Even availability of online data of employees will help organisation to take many administrative decisions easily like planning of recruitments, posting of official to a task as per their experience and qualification, easily available online to the administration. It will also help employees to concentrate more on public service once free from personal anxiety of getting their due work done. That will enhance public delivery more satisfactory and more employees will be available for core work of the Government than maintaining of Service Book.
Availability of centralized data will enable Government for policy research and planning as such educational qualifications and other competencies and deficiencies may be easily obtained. It will enable Government to take transfer and posting decisions more pragmatically based on reliable first hand data.
The e-service book for DOPT employees launched on March 30, 2017 was also an initiative taken to fully automate it with live updating of all records. It was envisaged to go on a bigger and single platform for all central government employees and all transactions from Hiring to Retiring of a government servant should be fully automated.

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.
            Thanking you,
Yours sincerely,


 (RAVI MALIK),
Secretary General.
