All India Central Excise Inspectors’ Association
HYDERABAD BRANCH Dated : 11.03.2015
The Chief Commissioner,
Customs, Central Excise and Service Tax,
Sub: Inter Commissionerate Transfer –Request for forwarding of the representations -Regarding.
It is humbly submitted to the benign Chief Commissioner that many representations which were submitted by the Inspectors working in Hyderabad Zone and Vizag Zone seeking Inter Commissionerates Transfer to other Zones have not been forwarded so far.
2. It is submitted that Ministry vide letter F.No. A.22015/23/2011-Ad.III.A dated 27.10.2011 had lifted the ban on Inter Commissionerate Transfer in respect of Inspectors of Customs and Central Excise subject to completion of prescribed probation period. Recruitment Rules prescribes two years of probation period for Inspectors of Central Excise and accordingly, Inspectors working in these two zones have submitted representation requesting Inter Commissionerate Transfer after completion of two years of probation period as stipulated in the letter referred to above.
3. Some of the ICT representations which were forwarded to the concerned zones have been considered favorably and the officers also got posted to their native place. The Association is grateful for the benign action and extends its sincere gratitude to the Chief Commissioner and cadre controlling Commissioner of Hyderabad for their generous action. However, it is regretted to bring to your kind notice that some of the representations are yet to be forwarded to the respective zones.
4. All India Central Excise Inspectors’ Association, Hyderabad is aware of the fact of acute paucity of Inspectors after cadre restructuring as most of the senior inspectors got promoted as Superintendents. However, it is pertinent to submit that Staff Selection Commission has completed interview of 2013 Batch and final result of direct recruit inspector is awaited and the same is likely to be released very shortly. Further, written examination results for 2014 batch have also been declared by the Staff Selection Commission. It is expected that the inspector strength is likely to be augmented by the SSC in the coming months thereby averting the paucity in Inspector cadre. Further, a large number of STAs are also on the verge of Promotion to the cadre of Inspectors.
5. Since the process of acceptance of representations will also take reasonable time at the other end, it is requested that all such representations may please be forwarded to the concerned zones for necessary action. However, for the sake of administrative convenience, the relief of the officers whose representations are considered favourably at the other end, may be deferred till the new batch of inspectors allotted to Hyderabad / Vizag zone join the Department.
Thanking you Madam,
Copy submitted to the Commissioner, Customs, Central Excise and Service Tax, Hyderabad –I Commissionerate.
