F.No. AICEIA/RJT/1/2008 Date: 27.11.2013
The Chief Commissioner,
Sub.: Non Forwarding of Inter Commissionerate transfer applications to competent authority.
Kindly refer to the Board’s circular F.No. A.22015/23/2011-AD-III.A dated 27.10.2011vide which ban on Inter Commissionerate Transfer in respect of willing officers in Group “B”, “C” &”D” posts under CBEC has been lifted.
In this connection it has been brought to the notice of the association that the Inter Commissionerate transfer applications submitted by the Inspectors of Custom Preventive Commissionerate, Jamnagar were not forwarded to the Chief Commissioner Customs, Ahmedabad. However after reply to various queries by the administration and personal persuasion/ request by the individual officers and association their applications were forwarded to the Chief Commissioner Customs, Ahmedabad office after almost one and a half year.
Now these applications of Inter Commissionerate Transfer transferred are stuck up at Chief Commissioner Customs, Ahmedabad office and are not being forwarded to the competent authority i.e. Chief Commissioner, Central Excise Zone, Vadodara (the cadre controlling authority) for onward transmission.
Sir, after various representations and vigorous efforts made by national Association ban was lifted by the Board to provide an equal opportunity to all the officers who wanted to be transferred to or near to their home town or their home state subject to their losing of seniority. Some officers of Customs Preventive Commissionerate Jamnagar who have submitted Inter Commissionerate Transfer application are being deprived from the benefits of this policy framed by Board. Injustice and unequal treatment is done to the officers of Custom Preventive Commissionerate, Jamnagar by not forwarding of their ICT applications by the administration because on other hand ICT applications received from other Central Excise Commissionerate of the Zone and of other Zones are being forwarded to the competent authorities and also the ICT orders are also being issued.
In view of above it is requested to kindly forward the Inter Commissionerate Transfer Applications submitted by the officers of Customs Preventive, Jamnagar, which fulfill the conditions as liad down in the aforesaid circular, to the competent authority at the earliest. Further it is also requested to kindly issue suitable instructions the Customs Commissionerate, Jamnagar to forward the application to your office at the earliest upon receipt of the same by their office.
Association would be greatly indebted to your Honour if the above concerns are looked in to favorably.
