The Chief Commissioner,

Sir, as your honour is already aware that Rajkot Sector comprises of three Commissionerates i.e. Central Excise Commissionerate
Sir, your kind attention is invited to the present position of officers of Rajkot Commissionerate posted to Bhavnagar Commissionerate. During the restructuring of jurisdiction, bifurcation of the Rajkot Commissionerate which was carried out in the year 2001-02, two Central Excise Commissionerates viz.
During the annual general transfer order issued in May-2009 and June 2010 some officers of Rajkot Commissionerate were posted to Bhavnagar Commissionerate. Only few of these officers were repatriated to their parent Commissionerate as per the transfer policy. These officers have also given representations but administration has not considered their grounds as genuine and did not consider their requests. Further at the time of the annual general transfer order issued in May-2009 and June-2010 some of the officers whose parent Commissionerate is Rajkot Commissionerate, on repatriation from Customs Preventive Commissionerate Jamnagar were posted to Bhavnagar Commissionerate.
At present we do not have specific cadre of Custom officers. The Central Excise officers of Rajkot Commissionerate and Bhavnagar Commissionerate are sent on transfer basis to man Customs formation. After completion of their tenure of 4years in Customs Preventive Commissionerate Jamnagar the officers are to be repatriated to their respective parent Commissionerate. However from the annual general transfer order issued in May -2009, the officers of Rajkot Commissionerate (their parent Commissionerate) after completion of their tenure in Customs Preventive Commissionerate Jamnagar are being transferred to Central Excise Commissionerate Bhavnagar to fill deficiency/ vacancy. In this way in all they have completed more than around 5 years and more than 5 years of tenure out of their parent Commissionerate.
