Friends, the affidavit filed by dear Sh. S. Rajagopalan has given me an idea that I should also pursue for my seniority from 1984 or early instead of 1986. I was recruited as Central Excise Inspector vide advertisement Dated 28.04.84 in The Employment News and joined on 28.04.86 after getting relieved from CSS. Vacancies were advertised on 28.04.84, it means these were communicated to the recruiting body (SSC) even earlier than 28.04.84, may be even in 1983. And no need to say that these were located even earlier. So, it seems that I should also file a case asking the seniority from a date earlier than 28.04.84 which may fall even in the year 1983 instead of 1986.
