With nothing left to be happy about in terms of career prospects, pay or any other service matter, superintendents of central excise, service tax and customs will gather before the residences of Joint Secretary (Administration) and Member (PandV) of the Central Board of Excise and Customs on September 20 in a symbolic manner to highlight their pain through a Satyagraha programme in New Delhi.
The same programme will be observed before the residences of CBEC chairperson and the Revenue Secretary on September 21.
Despite disappointment, job dissatisfaction, demotivation, humiliation and frustration, the revenue targets are regularly being achieved above the set targets by the sincere, committed and dedicated efforts of these officers but nobody is worried about their career prospects.
These officers are forced to retire at a PB2 (the lowest Group B gazetted) post with only single promotion in the service career of 35-40 years after joining as Inspector whereas their common entry counterparts are easily enjoying PB4 levels (Joint Secretary and Commissioner, top level Group A posts) after getting 5-6 promotions.
These officers are getting promotion (if any) merely to Junior Time Scale while their counterparts of CPWD, CSS, CSSS, AFHQS, Railway Board, Rajya Sabha Secretariat and many others like administrative services, police services, forest services, engineering services, state services etc. to senior time scale.
