Customs lower-rung officials threaten to go on indefinite strike

Feeling let down due to bleak promotional prospects and alleged discrimination in cadre restructuring, Group C Customs officers recruited for prevention of smuggling and other economic offences are contemplating to go on indefinite strike.

At the two-day conference of All India Customs Group C Officers’ Federation, which began here on Saturday at Customs House its secretary general Ashis Chakraborty declared that they were left with no option but to go on strike if their genuine demands were not conceded.

The conference is being organised under the aegis of Visakhapatnam Central Excise, Customs & Service Tax Group C Officers’ Association. Association general secretary B.V. Suryanarayana presided.
