AIT News Network


NEW DELHI. 29th March 2016. The Government has finally booted out 15 unwanted Customs & Excise Officers with effect from 31st March 2016 under the provisions of Rule 56 J under which a Government Officer can be retired pre-maturely with all benefits.


The First list of Officers includes the names of 4 Officers of the Rank of Commissioner according to FinMin Sources and the names of the Officers were approved by the Finance Minister before he left for Australia on 28th March.


The name of a Commissioner Rank Officer who was raided twice by CBI and who faced criminal prosecution in court on charges of fraud and cheating was also on Top of the list but it is learnt his name was dropped from the list at the last minute and action has been deferred in this case.


The Orders will be served to the Officers on 31st March and the cheque for 3 month salary is being given to them as the Rule 56J required 3 month notice or 3 month salary in absence of notice.

This is the first list of Officers and such lists are expected every quarter as the Prime Minister has already issued instructions to review the records of Officers of the Department as the maximum complaints are being received against the Officers of Customs Excise & Service Tax Department. According to sources around 100 Officers may face the axe in coming days.


Several Officers of the Rank of Commissioner and Additional Commissioner who are managing juicy postings through their connections and engaged in corrupt practices are already under close watch of Agencies and more action is expected on Anti-corruption front.
