Board has issued post-wise allocation of approved Cadre strength and re-organization of Central Excise, Customs & Service Tax formations including various Directorates. The said allocation Order was due before 31st March, 2014 but due to some tussle in increasing/decreasing of formations, it was delayed. However, with some cosmetic changes, it is issued. The position of Mumbai Cadre Controlling Zone is reproduced below. Separate staff for Audit and M & P is given. In LTU, strength has been increased. The Mumbai Officers posted in LTU Audit will look after the audit work of LTU Mumbai as well as LTU Chennai. In Mumbai Central Excise, Principal Chief Commissioner will have the Cade Controlling Authority. As on date, Inspector Cadre of Mumbai Zone just touched 1993 batch. The strength Supdt of Mumbai Cadre Controlling Zone is 1650. In the ensuing approved CR, the strength is increased to 2470. Thus, the increase is 820. The CESA Mumbai express its resentment to the content mentioned at Para-5 of Board’s letter dated 1st Aug, 2014, which is totally discriminatory. The stagnated Inspector Cadre of this Zone will get some solace at least. Further development in this regard will follow. For detailed clarification on finer prints another notification is expected from DoPT. In Zones for effecting functioning of the new Commissionerates/formations require another notification from Board and Trade Notice from the respective Zones.
