CAT issues notice to Revenue Secretary, CBEC chairman
Chandigarh, Sept 30 (PTI) The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) today issued notice returnable by October 25 to Revenue Secretary Sunil Mitra and Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) Chairman V Sridhar for allegedly defying its earlier order.
The CAT issued the notice on a contempt petition by CBEC Inspector Rajesh Rai and others charging the officials with defying an earlier order on May 5, 2006 which directs that reservation should not be carried out in upgraded posts of Excise and Customs departments.
The CBEC had upgraded around 913 posts from Inspector to Superintendent level across the country in 1997, petitioner’s counsel V K Sharma said.
Rai and others moved High Court demanding that there should not be any reservation in upgraded posts.
