Shri N.B.Singh,
Central Board of Direct Taxes,

Dear Sir,

Sub: Re-engagement of retired personnel in the Department- Regarding-

Kindly refer to your DO letter addressed to the Chief Commissioners on the above subject.
In this connection we are to bring to your kind notice that the re-engagement of Inspectors who are retired is not desirable in as much as the Inspector of Income-tax is one of the prescribed authority under the IT Act and are entrusted with statutory functions. This apart, we do not have unmanageable deficiency of manpower in the cadre of Inspectors in any charge. Besides the Staff Selection Commission has already given dockets for filling up the present vacancies in the Cadre of Inspectors and the allocation has also been made amongst various charges.
In the cases of Tax Assistants and Stenographers Gr. III, it may be stated that there is no likelihood of anybody retiring on superannuation as TA or Steno Gr.III. The decision taken at the CCsIT Conference, for the above reasons is not practically feasible for implementation.
We, therefore request that instead of redeploying the retired personnel which is not practically feasible for the reasons stated above, Government agencies like employment exchanges may be approached for short term engagement of persons.

Thanking you,
Yours fraternally,

Secretary General.
