Subject: Modification of the abstract of XT-I Diary regarding.
Attention is invited to Circular No. 53/88-CX-6 dated 12.07.1998 wherein a revised abstract of XT-I diary was circulated. Over the years, the Central Excise laws and procedures have undergone several changes, and a need was felt to revise the format of the XT-I Diary. The revised XT-I contains important work carried out during a month and it does not require reporting of daily functioning as was being done in present XT-I format. Accordingly, the revised abstract of XT-I Diary is annexed to this Circular. Henceforth, the XT-I Diary shall be maintained as per the revised format. The new format shall come into effect from 01.10.2007.
2. While examining this issue, the Board has observed that the details reflected in XT-I Diary show the work done by field officer in discharge of duties and hence, it serves as an effective tool in the administration and inspection of respective offices. Therefore, it should be ensured that the XT-I Diary is written by all the concerned officers as per the existing guidelines.
3. The field formations may be instructed suitably.
4. Hindi version of the Circular follow.
