CBEC seeks approval for 33% hike in staff strength
Chennai, April 7: The Central

Board of Excise and Customs has sought from the Government a 33 per cent

increase in staff strength.

The department plans to recruit officers in the A, B and C categories. The

proposal is with the Department of Personnel and Training. Once approved, it

will go to the Cabinet for approval, said Mr S.K. Goel, Chairman, CBEC.

Mr Goel was responding to a query from mediapersons about the shortage of

customs officers at the Chennai port that was affecting the free flow of

containerised goods. “The shortage is not only in Chennai but across India. We

hope to solve it by recruiting more officers. I cannot give you a timeframe on

the staff addition,” he said.
