F.No. AICEIA/RJT/1/2008 Date: 11.12.2013
The Chief Commissioner,
Central Excise Zone,
Sub.: Non-forwarding of representations / Transfer Applications to competent authority.
It has been brought to the notice of the Association that the Representations/ Transfer Applications submitted by the Inspectors serving at Bhavnagar Commissionerate are not being forwarded to the competent authorities i.e your good office and to the Commissioner, Rajkot Commissionerate. The reason cited being that there is acute shortage of staff at Bhavnagar Commisssionerate and hence no one can be relieved so, the representations need not be forwarded.
The officers have their personal reasons, also some difficulties and their transfer requests which they want to put up to your good self / competent authorities for kind consideration. However these applications are not being forwarded to you or Commissioner, Rajkot. The reason given is also not satisfactory and justifying. Sir, when representations made for Inter Commissionerate Transfer have been forwarded and also the officers in the grade of Inspectors have been relieved, there seems to be no justification for non-forwarding of representations/ transfer applications made by officers on various grounds. Injustice and unequal treatment is done to these officers by not forwarding their Transfer Applications by the concerned Section. Further various instructions are issued stating that the representations / transfer applications received by the administration may be forwarded to the competent authorities.
In view of above, it is requested to kindly issue suitable directions to Bhavnagar Commissionerate regarding forwarding of Transfer Applications to the competent authority at the earliest.
Association would be greatly indebted to your Honour if the above concerns are looked in to favorably.
