Central Board of Excise &Customs,
Subject : Annual General Transfer for the year 2011 in the Rajkot Sector of Gujarat Zone.
Sir, as your goodself must be aware of the severe logjamthat has occurred in issuance of annual transfers order in the commissionerates of entire Gujarat Zone, due to abrupt and gravely ill-timed change proposed in the existing Transfer and Posting Policy in the Customs side of the Gujarat Zone by the Chief Commissioner of Customs, Gujarat Zone, Ahmedabad.
2.The new Transfer and Posting Policy for Gujarat was floated by the office of Chief Commissioner at the fag end of May, 2011. On being apprised about the practical and administrative difficulties in overhauling the entire Central Excise set-up, Chief Commissioner of Customs, AhmedabadZone, Ahmedabad (who incidentally holds the charge of Chief Commissioner of Central Excise, Vadodara Zone and Ahmedabad Zone) has agreed to defer the Central Excise policy as of now. However, Chief Commissioner is now pressing for effecting transfer and postings under a newly framed Customs Policy circulated on 10.6.2010. The deadline for issuance of Annual Transfer orders framed by the then Chief Commissioner of Central Excise, Ahmedabad for Rajkot Sector, comprising of Central Excise Commissionerates of Rajkot and Bhavnagar and Customs (P) Commissionerate, Jamnagar is 15th April and the new Customs Policy now circulated by the Chief Commissioner of Customs, Gujarat Zone, Ahmedabad, irrespective of its merits/demerits, also set out the deadline for issuing orders as15th May. Both these deadlines have passed since long and no orders for Customs formations have been issued.
3.Consequent upon prolonged and unjustified delay in issuing the orders, our members unanimously believe that issuing any order now does not augur well with overall welfare of members, whose children have already started attending schools for the current academic year, i. e. 2011-12.
In view of above, it would be in the interest of overall welfare of staff and their family members if annual general transfer for Rajkot sector comprising of 3 Commissionerates as above, is concluded by issuing minimum station transfer orders &rotation orders after taking into consideration request/willingness made by individual members.
