Sub: Renewal of recognition.
Sir,
Kindly refer to the following communications of the Association-
i) Ref. No. 218/R/14 Dt. 26.11.14.                                  ii) Ref. No. 06/R/15 Dt. 27.01.15.
iii) Ref. No. 112/R/15 Dt. 08.09.15.                                iv) Ref. No. 156/R/15 Dt. 27.12.15.
v) Ref. No. 171/R/16 Dt. 13.10.16.
2. Your kind attention is also invited to the letter F. No. CBEC-10C13(12)/1/2016-Ad.II B Dt. 29.09.16 mentioning that the recognition of this Association has lapsed on 20.01.15 and proposal for renewal is awaited.
3. It is further submitted with due regards that the recognition of this Association has never lapsed as there is no provision of renewal of a Service Association under RSA, 1993 Rules. Rules say only about recognition without any mandate for renewal. It is also worth to submit that there exists no other Association to represent the Central Excise Superintendents.  
4. However, the recognition of the Association was renewed on being insisted by the concerned section vide letter F. No. 12017/10/2012-Ad.IVA Dt. 25.02.13 of the CBEC further for 5 years. It means that there arises no question of lapse of recognition prior to 25.02.18 even as per the version of the concerned section.
5. However despite of no renewal required, this Association sent the renewal proposal vide its communication under Ref. No. 218/R/14 Dt. 26.11.14 well in advance on insistence of the concerned section which was responded after more than one year by that section vide letter F.No.B. 12017/09/2015-AdIVA Dt. 11.12.15. Again despite of no requirement of renewal under the current rules, all queries were replied vide Ref. No. 156/R/15 Dt. 27.12.15 by the Association immediately after receiving the above said letter from the concerned section.
6. This Association has been complying all the conditions and Govt. instructions set out in the CCS (RSA) Rules, 1993 and will keep complying the same regularly. It is also worth to submit that the recognition of the Association has never been withdrawn due to any lapse in complying the conditions or due to any other reason.
7. In view of the above, it is requested to take the necessary action accordingly to strike down the name of this Association from the list of the associations whose recognition has been lapsed as per the version of the concerned section. If any re-verification of membership is required, it is requested that the same may kindly be asked from the field formations 'on line' keeping in view that the thrust of the present govt. is already on paperless work and salaries of the govt. employees are already being prepared as well as sent electronically direct to the accounts of the concerned individuals.
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Sub: Delay in processing of deputation applications.
Madam,
            It is submitted with due regards that the applications are being invited by the CBEC for filling the posts of Asstt. Commissioner/Deputy Commissioner in various SEZs and Asstt. Director/Deputy Director in various Directorates from time to time but the time period to apply for the same is given very short, i.e., only 20 days.
2. It is further submitted that the applications of the interested officers are not being processed timely on account of such a short period to apply. This delay in processing of applications for deputation finally results in non-forwarding of the applications of these officers as the processing of application at every stage from division to Commissionerate and then Commissionerate to CCO consumes a lot of time and thereby, the applications are being disposed off with the remark that the last date is over.  
3. In view of the above, it is requested that the date in such cases may kindly be extended for two months and the concerned CCO may also be directed to forward the applications to the CBEC/competent authority invariably on time. It is also requested that the advance applications may also kindly be duly considered in such cases.
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,



(RAVI MALIK),
Secretary General.
Copy with the request for necessary action to:
The Chief Commissioner, Central Excise Bhopal Zone, Bhopal: It is also requested to kindly forward such applications to the concerned authority even after the due date, if the officers have applied timely. The concerned authority may kindly decide the final fate of such applications.

Sub: Vehicles for Range Offices.
Madam,
            Kindly refer to the draft vehicle policy placed on CBEC website and calling for comments.
            2. It is submitted with due regards that no provision has been made for vehicle for Range Offices in the draft policy. No need to submit that the Range offices attend various field activities including export ceiling, identification of defaulters, location of assets, service of notices,  verification of premises for registration, issuance of installation certificates after due verifications etc.
3. The nature of job of the Range Officers demands mobility on above account requiring independent mode of commuting at short notice. Accordingly, one vehicle for every Range Office in addition to the vehicle provided to Division office is very much required. The kilometer ceiling should also be considerably higher (3000 Kms) for vehicles provided to Range Office. It may kindly be appreciated that the vehicle is not a luxury but a necessity to enable a Range Office perform official duties in efficient and independent manner.
4. In view of the above, it is requested that the provision may kindly be made of allotment of one vehicle for every Range Office in addition to the vehicle provided to Division office.
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Sub: Batch to batch Non Functional Financial Upgradation to our officers to grant financial parity with the best placed counterparts of CSS etc. on the lines of other Group ‘A’ cadres vs. IAS.
Madam,
            Kindly refer to the letter F. No. 8/B/70/HRD (HRM)/2014 Dt. 16.01.14 and OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16 of CBEC.
2. It is submitted with due regards that Central Excise 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 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) 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). 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. Thus, the Central Excise Superintendents are getting salary even less than the pension of their counterparts.
3. 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 was recommended only for Group ‘A’ organized service by the VIth CPC.
4. 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) in the Ministries get the benefit of promotions upto the Joint Secretary level, i.e., i) SO with GP of Rs. 5400/- in PB3 after 4 years of service, ii) US (Grade-I) with GP of Rs.6600/-, iii) DS with GP of Rs. 7600/-, iv) Director with GP of Rs. 8700/- in PB-4 and v) JS with GP of Rs. 10000/-. We have nothing against them and wish even more promotions for them. However, their counterpart Inspectors of Central Excise in CBEC recruited as Group-B (Non Gazetted) through the same All India competitive examination get only one promotion in 35/40 years of service career.
5. The Assistants/Section Officers are working in the headquarters offices on policy making seats whereas the Inspectors/Superintendents of Central Excise 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 are not treated at par with the counterparts of CSS. 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.
6. The Assistants/Section Officers are working in the headquarters offices on policy making seats whereas the Inspectors/Superintendents of Central Excise 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 are not treated at par with the counterparts of CSS. 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.
7. 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 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. Needless to submit that they are already earning the major portion of the govt. revenues. It is also worth to submit that the Govt. of India has regularly been earning the revenue far ahead of the revenue targets in r/o of Central Excise duty, Customs duty and Service Tax particularly due to the efficient, committed & effective efforts of the workforce in the form of Central Excise Inspectors/Superintendents despite of their total demoralisation, disappointment and job-dissatisfaction in r/o pay & perks, career prospects and working conditions.
8. 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, 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 officers.
9. As far as the importance of the responsibilities is concerned, the Superintendents are discharging all functions relating to assessment, investigation & intelligence, issuance of Show Cause Notices with the powers of adjudication. They have not only been conferred with the judicial powers in the matter of adjudication but also been conferred with the judicial powers of recording statements of various persons in terms of Section 14 of the Central Excise Act, 1944 or Section 108 of the Customs Act, 1962.  The statements tendered before the Central Excise 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 powers 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 already being highly paid with extra perks but also treated in a far better way in the matter of career prospects than our Superintendents in our country.
10. 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 being given 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 GST in the forthcoming times. In the actual terms, they are the ‘backbone of the government’ on account of being responsible to earn the finance for the government. But very unfortunately, they are being totally ignored in every matter.
11. 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’ Gazetted and Non-Gazetted officers. The group ‘A’ officers have already been granted financial parity by the Government of India by the grant of non-functional financial upgradation to other group ‘A’ officers at par with the counterparts of IAS. 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.  The Inspectors and Superintendents of Central Excise are being discriminated despite of collecting the major portion of Government revenues and are not being awarded due career prospects as well as appropriate pay packages.
12. No need to submit that the VIth as well as VIIth CPC has 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.
13. This NFU was also recommended for our officers to the VIIth Pay Commission by the CBEC vide F. No. 8/B/70/HRD (HRM)/2014 Dt. 16.01.14 but, unfortunately, the CPC kept mum on the issue despite of being agreed in Jodhpur meeting.
14. It has again been recommended by CBEC to the Revenue Hqrs for Central Excise Superintendents and Inspectors vide OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16 after the issuance of the 7th CPC report. But very unfortunately, nothing has happened to the proposal till date.
             15. In view of the above, it is requested that the Central Excise Superintendents may also kindly be granted non-functional financial up-gradation to grant them at least financial parity with their best placed common entry counterparts of CSS etc. (recruited in the same pay scale through common entry examination) after entry into Group ‘B’ or equivalent grade on batch to batch basis enabling them to retire in PB4 like their counterparts too. The proposal sent already to the Revenue Hqrs vide OM F. No.A-26017/154//2015-Ad.IIA Dt. 22.02.16 of CBEC may kindly, therefore, be pursued with the nodal department to reach the finality. It is reiterated that the claim of the Central Excise Superintendents becomes even stronger than other Group B counterparts on account of the judicial powers granted to them to adjudicate the relevant cases and recording statements like a Magistrate under Section 14 of Central Excise Act and Section 108 of Customs Act having validity even before the Supreme Court and also the Adjudication Orders being prepared by them for the Commissioner level officers.

Sub: Scheme to improve the career prospects of Central Excise Superintendents/Inspectors as these officers are retiring with single promotion in the service career of 35-40 years.
Madam,
               It is submitted with due regards that our officers are retiring with single promotion on a PB2 post (Level-8) in a career of 35-40 years after joining the job as Inspector (Level-7) whereas our counterparts are easily attaining PB4 levels (Level-13 & above) with 5-6 promotions. The Group ‘B’ Gazetted officers of ours join the job as Inspector (Group ‘B’ Non-Gazetted) and retire as Superintendent after getting only one promotion during the entire service career barring 1% whereas other common entry counterparts including Examiners (under same organization of CBEC in same cadre of Inspector), CSS and CBDT under the same Department of Revenue of same Ministry of Finance are getting 5 to 6 promotions upto the level of Joint Secretary/Commissioner after being recruited through one and the same process in the same grade. The matter was raised before the Cabinet Secretary and he was pleased to recommend to the Cabinet to bring the measures to remove the stagnation of our officers independent of cadre restructuring which was duly approved by the Cabinet but no step has been taken till date even after expiry of more than 3 years.
               2. There is no change in the scenario regarding our career prospects despite of the repeated requests and representations made to the administration. Gross injustice is being done to our officers despite of being instrumental with full dedication & commitment to collect the biggest portion of Govt. revenues always above even redefined revenue targets. Temporary posts of Asstt. Commissioner created in the cadre restructuring are also unable to undo the injustice being done with our officers, that’s why the Cabinet approved to bring measures independent of cadre restructuring on the issue of our stagnation. These temporary posts will only enable to get around 4% of our officers get JTS post without any right for further promotions.
3. Very unfortunately, no measures have been taken till date to remove the stagnation of group ‘B’ executive officers in CBEC despite of the recommendations of Cabinet/CRC/Cabinet Secretary. A scheme is, therefore, required to be formulated on immediate basis enabling Central Excise Superintendents and Inspectors also entered into PB4 levels (at least a Grade Pay of Rs. 8700/-/Level-13) like the common entry counterparts of CBDT, CSS, Customs etc. This can be done by introduction of flexible/dynamic promotion/complementing scheme. Flexible complementing promotion scheme was introduced in the Department of Science & Technology to remove stagnation of stagnated officers. Benefit of dynamic assured career progression scheme has been given to Drivers in some departments.
4. Central Excise Superintendents/Inspectors are also forced to work under their extreme juniors of Customs (Examiners) belonging to one & the 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 as well as same nature of job. Examiner of 1984 has already become Addl. Commissioner (GP-Rs. 8700/- in PB4/Level-13) 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). We have nothing against any of our counterparts including Customs and wish them to get even more promotions but the discrimination being done to us should be undone by bringing at par with them maintaining the relative seniority in accordance of the initial recruitment without reverting back any of them. Instead, our officers may kindly be brought at par with them by promoting to respective levels.
5. Thus, the problem of acute stagnation existing in the cadre of Central Excise Superintendent and Inspector can be solved, if a flexible complementary promotional scheme (FCS) or dynamic assured career progression (DACP) scheme is introduced for them after joining as Inspector. As per the recommendations of IVth CPC, the flexible promotional scheme was introduced in the Department of Science and Technology. The Vth CPC vide chapter 54 of its report made a number of recommendations for modification of this scheme. The DOPT vide Notification No. 2/41/97-Plc, dated 9.11.98 made the regulation of in situ promotion under such Flexible Promotional Scheme. It has been further reviewed by the DOPT in the light of 6th CPC recommendations and modified Flexible Complementing Scheme guidelines issued vide OM No. AB/4017/37/2008-Esst(R) dated 10.09.10. FCS and MACPS both are also applicable simultaneously in the case of these officers.
               6. In view of the above particularly considering the extraordinarily acute stagnation of our officers, it is requested to kindly bring the scheme accordingly to enable our officers also attain PB4 levels (Level-13 & above) to grant-
(a) At least 5 in-situ promotions in uniform promotional hierarchy of functional promotions across all Ministries/departments of Govt. of India under flexible/dynamic promotion/complementing scheme (FCS or DACP) or
(b) In-situ promotions/non-functional upgradation on completion of residency periods as prescribed by DOPT under OM No. AB.14017/61/2008-Estt. (RR) Dt. 24.03.09 after joining as Inspector.
               It is also worth to submit that none of the above measures would require any functional post to be created. 
               Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Madam,
Kindly refer to the Ref. No. 31/P/17 Dt. 28.02.17 and 39/P/17 Dt. 10.03.17of the Association.
            2. It is submitted with due regards that the promotions have not been affected against the promotional quota in respect of regular/permanent posts in the last DPC. Thus, 230+200+230+104=764 posts are to be added for promotion of our officers against the promotional quota in respect of regular/permanent posts for the forthcoming DPC for the year 2016-17.
            3. It is further submitted that the DPC for the years 2014-15 and 2015-16 has been done for 1261 posts but promotion orders have been issued merely for 844 officers in all. Thus, 417 (1261-844) posts are also to be added for the forthcoming DPC.
4. Final figure is again to be reached by also adding all retirements, VRS, demise etc. against temporary posts. Accordingly, we have 1200+ posts of Asstt. Commissioner in hands as on date.
5. It is also worth to submit that the officers promoted against temporary posts have also not been moved upwards against regular posts which is required to be done immediately. This will increase the number of promotional posts at temporary level.
6. In view of the above, it is requested that immediate steps may kindly be taken to fill-up all vacant posts of Asstt. Commissioner by making upward movement (against regular/permanent posts) of the officers promoted against temporary posts to benefit the maximum number of our officers who are forced to retire merely after single promotion in the career.
                        Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Meeting with Member (P&V)

Dear friends,
namaste.
A meeting was held with the Member (P&V) yesterday on 14.03.17. The issues like DPC, shortage of staff, Transfer & posting, pay matter forwarded by DOPT etc. were discussed. Non-inclusion of promotional quota against regular posts in last DPC was raised. Accordingly, she was requested to initiate immediate steps to conduct the next DPC. She was positive on the issue and said to do the needful soon. Regarding transfers & postings of the newly promoted Asstt. Commissioners (who are our members as per Constitution of our Association), she was requested to make no displacement or minimum displacement. She said that she would do her best. Shortage of working hands with the Superintendents was also discussed. She said that we are already on the job to recruit required number of Inspectors and Tax Assistants. She was also requested to promote the eligible Tax Assistants to the post of Inspector based on the qualifying service at par with CBDT as also requested by our ministerial officers to us. She assured to do the needful. She was also requested to do something for Drivers as requested by them to us. She said that a scheme may be devised for their promotion to clerical cadre. She was also requested to do the needful on our pay matters in r/o our representation forwarded to CBEC through Revenue Hqrs by DOPT as a result of our meeting with DOPT Secretary. She assured to do the needful. She was also requested to look into other issues of our cadre as well as other cadres by having periodical meetings. She agreed to this point and intended to have such meeting probably in the month of April or May and at every quarter after that. She said that field formations have already been directed to hold such meetings.
Love,
Ravi Malik.
