Sub: Promotion of ad hoc Assistant Commissioners to the post of Deputy Commissioner on completion of 4 years of service.
Madam,
With due regards, your kind attention is invited to the judgement of the Hon’ble CAT, Madras in OA No. 998/2001 and 873/2007 ordering promotion of all ad hoc Asstt. Commissioners to the post of Deputy Commissioner on completion of 4 years of service. These judgements were duly accepted by the CBEC. As a result, all ad hoc Asstt. Commissioners completing 4 years of service upto 2004 (w.e.f. 1997) were promoted to the post of Deputy Commissioner by way of review DPC. Accordingly, all 2005 onwards ad hoc Asstt. Commissioners were also promoted to the post of Deputy Commissioner on completion of 4 years of service by holding regular DPCs.  
2. It is further submitted that 300 regular and 2118 temporary posts of Asstt. Commissioner were created in December, 2013 as a result of cadre restructuring, DPC for which was held by a delay of around one year in the month of October, 2014 despite of these posts being belonged to the year 2013-14. No need to submit that the DPC for the vacancy year of 2013-14 was to be conducted in the month of January, 2013 as per the provisions. So, one supplementary DPC was required to be conducted immediate after the creation of these posts for the year 2013-14. Thus, all officers promoted in October, 2014 belong to the panel relating to the year 2013-14 and, technically, this panel belongs to the month of January, 2013.   
3. Thus, the ad hoc Asstt. Commissioners belonging to the panel of January, 2013 should have been promoted to the post of Deputy Commissioner in the month of January, 2017. Accordingly, all Asstt. Commissioners (whether ad hoc or regular) belonging to the month of January of the respective vacancy year are to be promoted (on completion of 4 years of service) to the post of Deputy Commissioner  in the month of January of respective year.
4. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly take necessary steps to promote all ad hoc Asstt. Commissioners of October, 2014 to the post of Deputy Commissioner and so on.
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Sub: Request for appointment.
Madam
            With due regards, a gentle reminder is made to your goodself about your kind willingness to bring a scheme for Central Excise executive officers benefitting the old as well as young generation. We are very hopeful and waiting for the same very eagerly but the same is yet to come.
2. As far as the distribution of assessees between the states and centre is concerned, the same has also been started without paying any heed to the career prospects of workforce of CBEC itself alongwith Central Govt. The redressal of other HR issues relating to the Central Excise gazetted executive officers is also long pending. The condition relating to the implementation of various court verdicts and decisions taken in employee grievance redressal meetings is also the worst. The meetings under employee grievance redressal mechanism are not being held despite of being due after every two months. Thus, the list of the grievances of your workforce has become endless.
3. Accordingly, it is requested to have a board meeting to listen the Association in person for due redressal of the following points under employee grievance redressal mechanism -
(1) Scheme benefitting the old as well as young Central Excise executive officers.
(2) Upgradation of posts/scales like state governments under GST.
(3) DPC for the post of Asstt. Commissioner.
(4) Batch to batch Non Functional Financial Upgradation to our officers to grant at least financial parity with the best placed counterparts of CSS etc.
(5) Implementation of the court verdicts including Subramanium case regarding time scale by Hon’ble Supreme Court and OA No. 2323/2012 regarding RRs by Principal Bench of Hon’ble CAT.
(6) Distribution of assesses between states and centre.
(7) Infrastructure and office space.
(8) Implementation of the decisions taken in earlier meetings and finalization/redressal of old points.
(9) any other point/s.  
            2. Your goodself is once more requested to look into the above issues for the sake of justice to the Central Excise executive officers, the most of whom are retiring with single promotion in their career after joining as Inspector.
Thanking you.
Yours faithfully,

Sub: Retention of General Pool accommodation in Delhi for the officers transferred to NCR.
Sir,
Kindly refer to the Ref. No. 23/AIB/A/17 Dt. 06.07.17 of the Association.
            2. It is again submitted with due regards that a good number of officers, working under CBEC, have been transferred to National Capital Region on implementation of GST. Many of them are having General Pool accommodation in Delhi.
            3. It is further submitted that the families including old aged parents and school/college going children of these officers are settled in Delhi for many years. Their wards are making due studies in the schools, colleges and institutes situated in Delhi itself. Parents and other family members of these officers may also be under medical treatment in the various hospitals situated in Delhi. Many of other family affairs of them may be settled in Delhi.
4. But the retention of General Pool accommodation is not permitted as per the existing guidelines of the Directorate of Estates, Ministry of Urban Development, if an officer is transferred out of Delhi. Retention of accommodation is not allowed, even if the officer is posted in National Capital Region. Thus, such officers are finding it difficult to retain the govt. accommodation allotted to them in Delhi.
            5. In this regard, it is also worth to mention that the Noida Export Processing Zone (NEPZ)/Noida Special Economic Zone (NSEZ) were allotted a quota in Delhi by the Directorate of Estates. The officers posted at NEPZ/NSEZ, Noida can retain such accommodation in Delhi. They are also permitted to apply afresh, if they desire so. No need to say that Delhi has now become an integral part of the National Capital Region. Accordingly being assured of retaining the accommodation in Delhi, shall help these officers to perform their duties peacefully under the GST regime.
            6. In view of the above, it is requested that the officers transferred from Delhi to NCR may kindly be allowed to retain the accommodation at Delhi by earmarking a quota of General Pool accommodation to the officers of CBEC.
            Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Sir,
Kindly refer to the Ref. No. 91/AIB/LTC/17 Dt. 06.09.17 of the Association and DOPT OM issued vide No. 31011/ 3/ 2014-Estt.(A-IV) Dt. 19.09.16 with the subject, “Central Civil Services (Leave Travel Concession) Rules, 1988 — Relaxation to travel by air to visit NER, J&K and A&N”.
2. Para 2 of the above mentioned DOPT OM states as under-
“2. The above special dispensation is subject to the following terms & conditions:
(i) All eligible Government servants may avail LTC to visit any place in NER/A&N/J&K against the conversion of their one Home Town LTC in a four year block.
(ii) Government servants whose Home Town and Headquarters/place of posting are the same are not allowed the conversion.”
3. It is submitted with due regards that not to allow conversion of one Home Town LTC to NER/A&N/J&K LTC is great injustice to the officers whose Home Town and Headquarters/place of posting are the same. This is also not in the interest of the tourism.
4. It is further submitted that these officers are already at loss in regard of Home Town LTC as “to be posted/transferred to Home Town or not” is not in their hands. They are transferred/posted to Home Town or any station as per the transfer/posting policy/norms in force.
5. In view of the above; it is requested that the matter may kindly be reviewed and the officers posted at Home Towns may also be allowed to convert Home Town LTC into regular LTC, otherwise the officers having Home Town in Delhi State, Chandigarh and Puducherry U.T. etc. would never be able to get this opportunity on posting to their Home Town despite of being resident of state/U.T. instead of mention of any town.
Thanking you,

Sir,
            Kindly refer to your letter D. O. F. No. 450/17/2017-Cus-IV Dt. 07.11.17 sent to various Central Excise and Customs formations.
            2. With due regards, it is to submit that the views of the Association may also kindly be taken for due consideration before arriving at final decision on the issue. The only way on the issue seems to form independent Customs Commissionrates/formations/divisions/houses manned by Central Excise personnel to reassign Customs functions to them falling under the erstwhile Central Excise/CGST jurisdictional area.
            3. The best way, however, seems to unify the Central Excise/CGST and Customs grades at group ‘B’ and ‘C’ levels like already existing in Group ‘A’. The Association has already given its submissions on the issue of unification on various occasions.
            4. In view of the above, it is also requested to give an appointment to the Association to place view points on the subject mentioned issue in person before your goodself/Board.

Sub: Distribution of assessees between Centre and States.
Madam,
With due regards and inviting your kind attention to the Ref. No. 142/AIB/E/17 Dt. 05.11.17 of the Association too, it is to submit that the work of the distribution of assessees has been started in r/o GST. In Uttar Pradesh, the distribution of pre-existing assessees with the Central Government has been made in the manner that the units with about 65% of revenue have been transferred to State Government including big revenue paying units. But this distribution doesn’t seem justifiable as far as the transfer of the assessees pre-existing with the Central Government is concerned. We are not aware of the revenue position of the assessees transferred/to be transferred to the Central Government from the State Government.   
2. It also seems that this distribution has been done without waiting for any formal communication from the Board. Further, it seems that the formula for the distribution of assessees is yet to be finalized by the GST Council.
3. If the distribution is done without keeping in mind the revenue position to be with the Central Government after the distribution, the same will neither be in the interest of the Central Government nor CBEC particularly keeping in view the compensation clause for State Governments. It will also affect the career prospects of the workforce of the CBEC for the want of functional justification.
4. No need to submit that the Association has been making continuous submissions on the issue of the distribution of the assessees between Centre and States and it was assured that “neither the man power will be reduced under GST nor the career prospects of our officers will be affected adversely on the implementation of GST”.
5. In view of the above, it is requested to follow a justifiable formula for the distribution of the assessees between the Centre and States duly keeping the interest of the Central Government, CBEC and man power of the CBEC intact without transferring the pre-existing bigger assesses to the States in the interest of the revenue of Central Government.
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Distribution of assessees under GST

Dear Frnds,
Namaste.
Distribution of assessees between Centre and States has been started without any formal communication from CBEC and also without finlisation of distribution formula by GST council. In Uttar Pradesh, existing assessees with Centre have been transferred to State leaving only 35% revenue with Centre. Big units like ITC, Samsung etc. have been transferred to State. We don't know what would be transferred to Centre by State and what would be final revenue position with Centre. If revenue position with Centre becomes weak by such transfer, no need to say that it would affect functional justification of manpower under CBEC very adversely. We all have to think seriously what to do regarding it. It'll CERTAINLY affect our career avenues very badly. No need to say that Central Excise Inspectors and Superintendents are already facing the worst career prospects.
Love,

With due regards, the forthcoming issues are submitted for your kind consideration and due redressal w.r.t. the e-mail request of the Association made to your goodself on 24.10.17. Even if any of issues had been sent to the Department of Expenditure for approval/consideration by the CBEC, it seems that the same have never been placed before your goodself. A bit detailed representation on each issue is also enclosed alongwith explaining the things in a bit clear manner. The issues are as under-

(1)  Implementation of para 7.15.24 of 6th CPC report in the light of UO No. 6/37/98-IC Dt. 24.11.14 of Expenditure (as detailed in Annexure-I enclosed herewith).

(2) Retrospective implementation of the pay scale of Central Excise Superintendents at par with NCB Superintendents as  cleared by IFU vide F. No. A-26017/65/2003-Ad-II(A) of CBEC (as detailed in Annexure-II enclosed herewith).

(3)  Batch to batch Non Functional Financial Upgradation to our officers to grant financial parity with the best placed counterparts of CSS etc. as recommended by CBEC vide OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16 (as detailed in Annexure-III enclosed herewith).

Sub: Implementation of para 7.15.24 of 6th CPC report in light of UO No. 6/37/98-IC Dt. 24.11.14 of Expenditure.
Sir,
With due regards, it is to submit that the pay scale of the Chief Enforcement Officers, analogous counterparts of Central Excise Superintendent, under our own Department of Revenue was enhanced to Rs. 8000-13500/- without the recommendations by CPC vide Order F. No. 1612612004-Ad.I.C dt. 04.10.05. The 6th  CPC under para 7.14.25 recommended to maintain parity between the post of Chief Enforcement Officer and Central Excise Superintendent etc. which has not been implemented till date. Subsequently, the post of the Chief Enforcement Officer was re-designated as Assistant Director. The duties and responsibilities of Assistant Director (re-designated) of Enforcement Directorate are at par with the duties and responsibilities of the post of Central Excise Superintendent. The Central Excise Superintendents join the Enforcement Directorate as Assistant Director on deputation basis also. The Chief Enforcement Officers are also being paid 25% extra salary per month again without the recommendations of CPC.
               2. The competent authority in the Govt. of India (Department of Expenditure) has, however, approved an initial grade pay of Rs. 5400/- in PB2 for Central Excise Superintendents on 21.11.14 considering para 7.15.24 of the report of 6th CPC but it was communicated finally to CBEC vide UO No. 6/37/98-IC Dt. 24.11.14 to send the case to 7th CPC.
               3. It is really unfortunate and totally unjustified that the matter duly recommended by the 6th CPC and duly accepted by the competent authority was again asked to be sent to 7th CPC. It was, however, neither sent to the 7th CPC nor implemented till date. Even if it was sent to the 7th CPC and was again recommended, who knows that it would have not again been asked to be sent to the next CPC/s under an unending process.
               4. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly undo the discrimination by implementing the para 7.15.24 of 6th CPC report in accordance of the approval by the competent authority of the Expenditure on 21.11.14 vide UO No. 6/37/98-IC to give justice to the Central Excise/CGST Superintendents.

Sub: Retrospective implementation of pay scale of Central Excise Superintendents at par with NCB Superintendents who were the part & parcel of one & the same RRs having a common seniority list for being promoted to the common post of Asstt. Commissioner.
Sir,
With due regards, it is to submit that the pay scale of the Superintendents of Narcotics Control Bureau was revised to Rs. 7500-12000/- from Rs. 6500-10500/- w.e.f. 01.01.96 with all consequential benefits vide U.O. No. 169/1/2005-IC dt. 11.04.05 of the Department of Expenditure leading to the issuance of Order F. No. II/2(38)/2004-Estt. dt. 20.04.05 by the Narcotics Control Bureau whereas the pay scale of the Superintendents of Central Excise was revised to Rs. 7500-12000/- from Rs. 6500-10500/- prospective effect w.e.f. 21.04.04, i.e., from the date of issuance of the order vide O.M. No. 6/37/98-IC dt. 21.04.04.
            2. It is worth to submit that the Superintendents of Narcotics Control Bureau were granted the retrospective benefit despite of the fact that their pay scale was revised even after the revision of pay scale of Superintendents of Central Excise. The Association has been continuously raising the demand for implementing the revised pay scale with retrospective effect for central Excise Superintendents instead of 21.04.2004 since very beginning but nothing has happened till date. It is further submitted that the Superintendents in Narcotics Control Bureau were also granted the non-functional time scale on completion of 4 years of service based on the parity with the Superintendents of Central Excise and also based on the precedent of the grant of time scale to later.  
3. Further, there exists an established parity and relativity between the Superintendents of NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) and Superintendents of Central Excise as the nature of duties, mode of recruitment, functions and responsibilities of these posts are the same. The Superintendents of Central Excise are also working as Superintendents in NCB since the creation of NCB. NCB was also a part of CBEC under the Department of Revenue and remained its part till 18.02.03. The Superintendents of NCB were sharing common seniority with the Superintendents of Central Excise for promotion to the Group ‘A’ post of Asstt. Commissioner till 18.02.03. The Allocation of Business Rules, 1961 were amended vide Notification No. I/22/1/2003-CAB dt. 18.02.03 [S.O. 193(E)] to include the NCB in the Ministry of Home Affairs. Even after that, NCB is being monitored by the CBEC/Department of Revenue and the Superintendents of Central Excise are till now performing their duties as Superintendents of NCB.
4. The mode of recruitment of the Inspectors in CBEC and Intelligence Officers (Inspector grade) in NCB is also common. The posts of Superintendents in CBEC and NCB are also filled-up through promotion from the Inspectors and Intelligence Officers. The High Power Committee formed by the then Finance Minister also accepted that the Superintendents of Central Excise and the Superintendents of NCB are at par. Further, the Sixth  Pay  Commission  had  categorically  observed  vide  Para  7.15.20  of  its  report  that  the  duties  & responsibilities attached to these posts whether in Central Excise or in the Narcotics Control Bureau are similar.
              5. Thus, the non-grant of retrospective revision of pay scale to the Central Excise Superintendents is not justified as the grave anomaly has arisen on account of the different dates of revision prescribed by the Department of Expenditure for different categories of employees. If the pay scale of the Superintendents of NCB was revised retrospectively w.e.f. 01.01.96 by the Department of Expenditure, the prospective revision of pay scale from 21.04.04 for the Superintendents of Central Excise is gross injustice to them.
            6. It is also worth to submit with due regards that the matter was also recommended to the Department of Expenditure by the CBEC with due clearance from IFU vide F. No. A-26017/65/2003-Ad-II(A) of CBEC but the same has been returned to CBEC by the Expenditure perhaps as a routine manner without considering the merits of the case.
7. In view of the above, it is requested to kindly give the retrospective effect to the enhanced pay scale of the Central Excise Superintendents at par with the Superintendents of NCB for the sake of justice.
            Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,



(RAVI MALIK),

Sub: Batch to batch Non Functional Financial Upgradation to our officers to grant financial parity with the best placed counterparts of CSS etc.
Sir,
            With due regards, it is to submit that Central Excise/CGST Superintendents are retiring with single promotion on a PB2 post in a career of 35-40 years whereas their common entry counterparts of Customs, CBDT, CSS etc. are easily being promoted to PB4 (Level-13 & above) levels with 5-6 promotions. Central Excise Superintendents are also forced to work under their extreme juniors of Customs (Examiners) belonging to one & same cadre of Inspector and recruited through one & same process under one & same organization of CBEC in one & same department of Revenue of one & same Ministry of Finance with one & same administrative hierarchy. Examiner of 1984 has already become Addl. Commissioner (GP-Rs. 8700/- in PB4/Level-13) years ago after getting 5 promotions whereas the Central Excise Inspector of 1984 is yet to get IInd promotion to JTS post of Asstt. Commissioner (GP-Rs. 5400/- in PB3/Level-10). The counterparts of CSS including Rajya Sabha Secretariat and CBDT are already reaching the level of Joint Secretary and Commissioner respectively in the GP of Rs. 10000/- in PB4 (Level-14). We have nothing against these counterparts and wish them to get even more promotions but also request same benefit for us. We may kindly be granted at least financial parity with them as the Central Excise Superintendents are getting salary even less than the pension of above counterparts.
2. All organised group ‘A’ officers recruited with IAS,  the best placed group ‘A’ service, in the same pay scale through common entry have been granted financial parity with  counterparts of IAS in the form of non-functional financial up-gradation (NFU) vide DOPT OM No. AB.14017/64/2008-Estt.(RR) Dt. 24.04.09 to compensate lack of promotions as compared to IAS. This scheme was introduced for group ‘A’ officers to compensate financial loss in comparison to counterparts of IAS. Particularly keeping in view the extraordinarily acute stagnation of Central Excise Superintendents & Inspectors, a proposal for grant of non-functional financial up-gradation to grant them financial parity with the counterparts of CSS was approved and recommended to DOPT by the CBEC. But DOPT without going into the merits returned the same simply saying that NFU is applicable only for Group ‘A’ organized service.
3. As far as the group ‘B’ officers are concerned, the CSS officers are the best placed group ‘B’ officers of Govt. of India like IAS in group ‘A’. The group ‘B’ officers at the level of Inspector of Central Excise and the Assistant of CSS are recruited in a common scale of pay through common entry examination conducted by SSC. The officers recruited as Assistant (Group-B, Non Gazetted, Level-7) in the Ministries get the benefit of promotions upto the Joint Secretary level, i.e., i) SO with GP of Rs. 4800/- (Level-8) and Rs. 5400/- in PB3 (Level-10) after 4 years of service, ii) US (Grade-I) with GP of Rs.6600/- (Level-11), iii) DS with GP of Rs. 7600/- (Level-12), iv) Director with GP of Rs. 8700/- (Level-13) and JS with GP of Rs. 10000/- (Level-14). However, the majority of their counterpart Inspectors of Central Excise in CBEC recruited as Group-B (Non Gazetted) through the same All India competitive examination gets only one promotion in 35/40 years of service career.
 4. The Assistants/Section Officers are working in the headquarters offices on policy making seats whereas the Inspectors/Superintendents of Central Excise/CGST are working on more important seats of revenue collection in the field formations. Despite of working on more important seats, the Inspectors/Superintendents of Central Excise/CGST are not treated at par with the counterparts of CSS at least in financial matters. These CSS counterparts are retiring 4-5 grades above the officers recruited as the Inspector of Central Excise. On account of this, the CSS counterparts are getting 60% more pay than the officers recruited as Inspector of Central Excise. Even the pension of CSS counterparts is more than the salary of the officers recruited as Inspector of Central Excise.
5. The group ‘A’ officers in the Ministries are selected under Central Staffing Scheme on deputation basis from organized Group ‘A’ Services or from CSS officers being promoted from the post of Assistant/Section Officer but no such opportunity is available for the Inspectors/Superintendents of Central Excise who are not only looking after the work relating to the collection of Central Excise duty but also looking  after  the  work of collection of Customs duty (including Inland Air Travel Tax and Foreign Travel Tax) and Service Tax and also CGST & IGST. Needless to submit that they are already earning the maximum portion of the govt. revenues always far ahead even of the revised revenue targets with the efficient, committed & effective efforts despite of their total demoralisation, disappointment and job-dissatisfaction in r/o pay & perks, career prospects and working conditions.
6. Above facts very well manifest the injustice meted out to officers recruited as Central Excise Inspector despite of the most important work of revenue collection being done by them for govt. During this course, they have been facing every threat including life of them as well as their families by the hard core criminals, dreaded smugglers and white collared criminals alongwith tremendous administrative pressures. Thus, the officers recruited as the Inspector of Central Excise deserve a far better treatment in every aspect including pay, perks and career prospects. The grant of the non-functional financial upgradation on batch to batch basis with the common entry counterparts of CSS may really be a solace for these hard working Central Excise/CGST officers.
7. As far as the importance of the work responsibilities is concerned, the Superintendents are discharging all functions relating to assessment, investigation & intelligence, issuance of Show Cause Notices with the responsibility of adjudication. They have not only been conferred with the judicial responsibilities in the matter of adjudication but also conferred with the judicial responsibilities of recording statements of various persons in terms of Section 14 of the Central Excise Act, 1944 and Section 108 of the Customs Act, 1962.  The statements tendered before the Central Excise/CGST Superintendent have a legal binding and are treated as a valid piece of evidence by various courts including the Hon’ble Supreme Court just like the statements tendered before a Magistrate. Not only it, the Adjudication Orders are also being prepared by them for the Commissioner level officers. No such responsibilities have been conferred to the CSS officers or any other counterparts of Central Excise Superintendents/Inspectors. It is also important to mention that the judicial officers are not only being highly paid with extra perks but also treated in a far better way in the matter of career prospects in our country.
8. Though the Central Excise Superintendents are performing more responsible work functions as compared to other common entry counterparts, yet they are facing the worst career prospects instead of getting better treatment. This injustice is being faced by them despite of being the ‘backbone of the government revenue’ on account of being the major revenue collectors for the government in the form of Central Excise duty, Customs duty and Service Tax and also CGST & IGST. In the actual terms, they are the ‘backbone of the government’ on account of being responsible for the finance of the government. But very unfortunately, they are being totally ignored in every matter.
9. The parity is the basic concept of our Constitution and the parity in promotions is required to be maintained amongst the similarly placed employees but the Government of India have not initiated any action to maintain parity in promotions as well as pay packages amongst the Group ‘B’ officers. The group ‘A’ officers have already been granted financial parity by the Government of India by the grant of non-functional financial upgradation at par with the counterparts of IAS. Like it, the grant of the batch to batch non-functional financial upgradation after entry into group ‘B’ or equivalent grade is also the immediate need of the time for all group ‘B’ officers to bring them at par at least financially with the best placed group ‘B’ counterparts like CSS etc.  
 10. No need to submit that the VIth as well as VIIth CPC have already recommended to bring parity between the officers of headquarters offices and field offices keeping in view the utmost importance of the work being done by the field officers.
11. The matter was also recommended to the 7th CPC by the CBEC as advised by the Department of Expenditure (Ref. OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16 of CBEC) but the CPC kept silence on it without giving any finding. After the publication of 7th CPC report, the matter was again recommended by CBEC vide above mentioned OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16 (enclosed herewith) for the consideration of Empowered Committee but the Committee also remained silent on it.
12. In view of the above, it is requested to consider the matter sympathetically to grant non-functional financial up-gradation (NFU) to Central Excise/CGST Superintendents/Inspectors at par with the best placed Group ‘B’ counterparts of CSS for the sake of justice.

Sub: Initial pay scale to Central Excise/CGST Superintendent at par with DSP of CBI w.r.t. OM No. 1148/Dir(A)/2008 Dt. 08.12.08 of the Expenditure (also recommended by CBEC vide OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16) alongwith other perks & allowances etc.
Sir,  
            With due regards, it is to submit that the feeder cadre of Inspector was placed at par in the matter of pay scale in CBEC and CBI on 21.04.04 but the promotional cadre of Central Excise/CGST Superintendent is still awaited to be placed at par with the DSP of CBI (promotional cadre for Inspector in CBI). However, the 7th CPC has again recommended a higher pay scale for the Inspectors of CBI based on wrong facts saying that the CBI Inspector was working in a higher pay scale than the Central Excise Inspector prior to the formation of 7th CPC.
2. It is further submitted that new higher responsibilities of judicial nature were conferred upon Central Excise Superintendents vide Circular No.  922/12/ 2010-CX issued vide F. No. 208/2/2009-CX-6 Dt. 18.05.10 and 130/12/2010–ST issued vide F. No. 137/68/2010-CX. 4 Dt. 20.05.10. Their responsibilities have again been increased 10 times by enhancing the adjudication limit to Rs. 10 lac vide circular No. 1049/37/2016-CX issued vide F. No. 267/40/2016-CX.8 Dt. 29.09.16 of CBEC. No need to say that increased/higher responsibilities are always directly linked with the increased/higher pay scales. But very unfortunately, there is no increase in the pay scale of Central Excise Superintendents despite of the responsibilities of these officers being on regular increase.
3. Central Excise/CGST Superintendents have also been conferred with new higher technical/scientific responsibilities of ACES since 2010 and now GSTN under GST. The claim of these Superintendents becomes even stronger on account of recording statements like a Magistrate under Section 14 of Central Excise Act & Section 108 of Customs Act having validity even before the Hon’ble Supreme Court. Not only it, the Adjudication Orders are also being prepared by them for Commissioner level officers.  No such responsibilities have been conferred upon any counterpart of them including CBI. They are also being conferred with the new additional responsibilities every year in the Finance Bill (Budget). No need to say that Central Excise/CGST Superintendents also have to play a very important role by bearing very important responsibilities under GST too.
4. Despite of the admission by Expenditure Department Under RTI vide OM No. 1148/Dir(A)/2008 Dt. 08.12.08 (enclosed herewith) that the pay scale of Central Excise Superintendent was enhanced on 21.04.04 to grant them parity with DSP of CBI/DCIO of IB (analogous counterparts of Central Excise Superintendent), Central Excise Superintendent was not given the said parity and was granted merely a lower pay scale of Rs. 7500-12000/- w.e.f. 21.04.04 instead of Rs. 8000-13500/- or equivalent (pay scale of DSP of CBI/DCIO of IB).        
5. Govt. enhanced the pay scale of DSP of CBI without recommendations of CPC and also without any increase in their responsibilities considering them as Police Organisation. However, Hon’ble CAT of Jabalpur in order in r/o OA No. 45/2000 didn’t consider them as Police Organisation, whereas Special Police Establishment (Executive Staff)  Recruitment  Rules  and CBI Recruitment Rules, 1987 consider department of Central Excise as a Police Organisation. Section 21 of Central Excise Act and Section 53 of NDPS Act also confer powers of Officer-in-Charge of Police Station on Central Excise officers.
6. The Central Excise personnel are also deployed on International Airports, International Sea Ports and International borders side by side with IB, CBI, Army, BSF, CRPF and ITBP etc. These personnel have suffered heavy casualties while dealing with trans-border criminals and countering with the dreaded smugglers.  Also as per the OM issued vide F. No. 8/B/90/HRD (HRM)/2011 (Part-I)/4853 Dt. 21.10.14 and No.C.30013/11/2011-Ad.IV.A Dt.02.08.13 of CBEC/the Govt. of India, the Central Excise Superintendents perform their duties in the nature and style of ‘Military’ and ‘Navy’ being uniformed officers bearing “Ashoka Emblem”. Thus, Central Excise/CGST Superintendents are required to be placed under a pay scale even higher than the DSP of CBI on the lines of Military and Navy.   
            7. Till 07.02.96, the pay scale of both posts (Central Excise Superintendent and DSP of CBI) was same, i.e., Rs. 2000-3500/-. Govt. of India vide OM No. 245/23/95 – AVD-II Dt. 08.02.96 of DOPT enhanced the pay scale of DSP of CBI to Rs. 2200-4000/- retrospectively w.e.f. 01.01.86 without any increase in their responsibilities and also without recommendations of CPC. Thus, it is gross injustice not to bring the Central Excise Superintendent at least at par with the DSP of CBI in the matter of pay scale particularly when the govt. (department of expenditure) also admitted that pay scale of Central Excise Superintendent was enhanced to Rs. 7500-12000/- to grant them parity with the DSP of CBI/DCIO of IB. It is also worth to submit that the DSP of CBI etc. are also being paid 25% per month extra salary and also 13 months salary in the year, the same may also kindly be given to the Central Excise/CGST Superintendents and Inspectors.
            8. The plea by Central Excise Superintendents for grant of GP of Rs. 5400/- in PB3 has been turned down stating that it is the group ‘A’ entry scale belonging to the promotional post of Asstt. Commissioner, to which Superintendent is a feeder post. That being the case, the feeder post of Assistant and promotional post of Section Officer were placed in the same pay scale in CSS once upon a time just before the implementation of 6th CPC report. Likewise, feeder and promotional posts were being placed in the same pay scale in Audit and Accounts services. Also Group ‘B’ officers in the Sate Governments and Group ‘A’ All India Service Officers are recruited in the same grade pay of Rs. 5400/- in PB3 and get next promotion to the same post in grade pay of Rs. 6600/-. Further, it is also a fact that the pay of any Assistant Commissioner (direct) will always be less than a Superintendent on account of acute stagnation at Inspector and Superintendent levels. Accordingly, there should not be any problem to place the Central Excise Superintendent in the Grade Pay of Rs. 5400/- in PB3 (Level 10). This problem may, however, also be solved by promoting the Superintendent directly to STS (Level 11) post like most of the other counterparts or even making the group ‘A’ entry into Grade Pay of Rs. 6600/- (Level 11).
            9. Grant of the pay scale at par with the analogous counterparts of CBI to all Group ‘B’ gazetted executive officers in CBEC/CBIC including the Central Excise/CGST Superintendents, Customs Superintendents and Customs Appraisers will involve a negligible financial implication merely to the tune of around Rs. 18 crore particularly when they are earning the revenue always above the set targets regularly every year. They have collected the revenue to the tune of Rs. 8,86,000 crore for the year 2016-17 which is very well above the set target.
10. It is also worth to submit that only a negligible amount of merely around 80 paise is being incurred to collect Rs. 100/- by these officers despite of being faced the worst pay packages and also the worst career prospects. No need to say that the revenue collection and efficiency in the indirect tax administration would increase multifold, if these officers are made job-satisfied regarding their pay matters and career prospects.  
            11. Intelligence and investigation is integral part of the work responsibilities of Central Excise Superintendents like DSP of CBI. Central Excise Superintendents are performing rather more expert responsibilities than DSP of CBI, that's why they (and also Central Excise Inspectors) are allowed to go to CBI on deputation as DSP of CBI or above but DSP of CBI (or any cadre of CBI) is not allowed to come to Central Excise/CGST/Customs on deputation.
              12. The CBEC has also recommended for the grant of a Grade Pay of Rs. 5400/- in PB3 (Level-10) for the Central Excise Superintendents at par with the DSP of CBI and also to give them next promotion in STS vide OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16 (enclosed with Annexure-III) after the issuance of the 7th CPC report. But the matter is yet to reach the finality.
               13. In view of the above, it is requested to place the Central Excise/CGST Superintendents at least under a grade pay of Rs. 5400/- in PB3 (Level-10) or equivalent scale alongwith other perks & allowances etc. w.e.f. the date of the grant of the same to the DSP of CBI.
               Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
Encl: As above.
