An Experience of an IRS[C&CE] officer

Hello all,I am publishing an experience of a senior Commissioner level IRS[C&CE] officer without quoting his/her name here for general education to the Civil Service Aspirants...This is what he/she says:-

          "I opted for IC & CES after IAS as I was not keen on IFS and IPS. I was told IC &CES will give variety compared to Income Tax. It has reward schemes. My experience in the last 20 odd years vis-a-vis my initial assumptions is as follows:

1. In my two stints as AC/DC Division I could play the role in administration, adjudication (judicial), preventive (policing) and public relations (External Relations) and a team player (private executive). The position gave me immense insights in to the business processes of trade and industry and associated problems making me fit to be an advisor on these matters

2. Working in Customs: import assessment, export assessment, dock examination, and Courier cargo clearance gave me the skills of an Engineer or material/goods expert. Passenger clearance at airport... gave me superb insights in to human behaviour and human relationships; coordination with other agencies and working in a networked environment

3. Working in CESTAT, Legal, Audit, and Preventive, etc made me discriminate good argument and bad argument. It taught me appreciate that every one has a good argument and bad argument. I learnt how to advance my argument, views, opinions, etc without hurting others thought these are not in line with others views/opinions.

4. As JC/ADC I worked in sevice tax, major air cargo, minor port, CCO and NACEN. It gave me opportunity to work in a "staff role/supportive role". The period is used

for institution building: mentoring AC/DCs and learning leadership skills from seniors. I learnt coordination jobs, peer relation management, and self capacity building (did MPA in Singaporea)

5. As ADG, NACEN: I am happy to be part of capacity building machinery of CBEC.

My experience with the service is good. May be I got opportunity to work in all areas of work and at various places. I may be the very FEW WHO SERVED IN ALL FIVE ZONES. Ofcourse my stint in Central Zone is on addl charge basis (RTI, Patna and Kanpur)

I am of the view that our service is a combination of IAS (territorial jurisdiction), IPS (Uniform and Investigation), IFS (Coin Postings), and Judicial (adjudication). It gives immense variety.

To make the service better we need better house keeping and rest will be taken care."   Source:- Writeup on Facebook

Hope you are doing well. I have been looking for someone to answer my query so here I am..
