“ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY”. Keeping this old adage in mind the department of Central Excise and Customs, for promotion of sports amongst Central Government employees in the year 1976 initiated competitive sporting amongst the officers and staff of the department. Our department has produced many stalwarts in the field of Basketball, Football, Badminton and Athletics, who have won many medals and have brought laurels to our country and department. It has been decided that, this year on 8th July, 2016 along with, the 40th anniversary of the “Initiation of our department into professional sports”, we will be commemorating the International Day against Drug Abuse, by organizing a friendly cricket match among all Central Excise officers and staff of Cochin Commissionerate, Hqrs. office, CCO, Audit Commissionerate, Appeals Commissionerate and all Divisional offices.
