Dear Comrades,

DEMAND OF CONVERSION OF DEOS AS ACCOUNTANTS:
ALL DEOS ARE TO REPRESENT

Out of about 40 Ministry/Department wise departmentalized Accounting formations, posts dealing with data entry and Computer operations were created in the departmentalized accounts organization of CBEC and Central Pension Accounting Office.
Nearly 75 posts of KPOS (now DEO) were created under the then Chief Controller of Accounts, Central Board of Excise & Customs (now Pr. CCA, CBEC) in the year 1984-85 by down grading equal number posts of Accountants in the Pay Scale of Rs.950-1500 +Rs.20 special pay i.e. in the pay scale of LDC with special pay for doing technical nature. This was done despite vehement objections by the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association but with the passive support of the rival Association of that time created by authorities like present scenario. As there were recruitments to the posts of KPOs, the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association had to soften its opposition and taken care of the interests of the new recruits in the Cadre.
In terms of Ministry of Finance O.M. dated 11-9-89(implementation of Seshagiri Committee Report for EDP cadres of Central Government) the KPOs were re-designated as DEO Grade-A and granted the scale of Rs. 1150-1500 with effect from 11-09-1989 without any special pay. But the Controller General of Accounts dined to extend this benefit to the DEOs of CBEC. The All India Civil Accounts Employees Association was therefore, had to fight a legal battle to make the benefit available for the DEOs of CBEC(CAT, PB, New Delhi judgment dated 07.07.2008) .
In 1990, when the CPAO was created, authorities created another set of KPO/DEO posts in that office.
But the authorities did not formulate any RR for the Cadre of DEO and only after sustained struggle by All India Civil Accounts Employees Association; the authorities prescribed a Recruitment Rules for this new Cadre in 1994.
But the RR being totally with a subjective approach, none of the Employees of the Cadre could get a single promotion in application of the provisions of this RR. Till the time of framing of Recruitment Rules, the DEOs of CBEC had completed more than 8 years of service. The LDCs recruited in the organization along with them had received promotion as Accountant and many of them had become Senior Accountants also. Therefore, the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association kept on demanding conversion of DEOs as Accountants.
In late nineties another attack come on DEOs.  A section of candidates took the shelter of court to stop the DEOs from appearing the JAO (Civil) Examination.   Instantly, the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association had stood in the way of such a destructive approach and removed the attempt of creating the hurdle for the DEOs.
Though authorities did not concede the demand of conversion of DEO as Accountants in spite of sustained persuasion by the Association, but by using back door process one Smti. Rita Nishikant Sindhe, DEO from CPAO was converted as Accountant and transferred her to Nagpur vide CPAO, New Delhi O/o No:- CPAO/Estt/P.F/DEO/92 dated 29.11.2000. She got all benefits as Accountant. However, the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association continued its struggle on the demand of conversion of all other DEOs as Accountants.
In 2014-15 the then Pr. Chief Controller of Accounts, Central Board of Excise & Customs had decided to declare all DEOs as surplus unilaterally  and send them to surplus pool on the ground that there was no work left for DEOs in the Central Board of Excise & Customs setup due to change in the working conditions. But when the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association resorted to agitation, the then Controller General of Accounts intervened and stalled the process of declaring the DEOs of CBEC setup as surplus.
Thereafter, the DEOs of CBEC have been redeployed and entrusted the works of Accountants/Senior Accountants officially which complements the long pending demand of conversion of DEOs as Accountants.
The demand of conversion of DEOs as Accountants was placed before the 5th, 6th and 7th CPCs by the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association. But unfortunately, no pay commission had considered the matter.
The issue is now pending in the departmental Council (JCM), Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance. Moreover, in the Cadre Review proposal submitted to Controller General of Accounts in 2018, the demand has been once again reiterated.
Under the above circumstances it has been decided that:
1.     Central headquarters of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association shall issue a fresh letter to the authorities requesting them to settle the demand immediately (being circulated separately).
2.     All DEOs shall represent to the authorities requesting to convert them as Accountant indicating works they have been allocated officially.
3.     Copies of the representations should reach to the Central Headquarters of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association within 26th October, 2018.
4.     If the authorities do not respond we shall have to go for legal action.
The draft of the representation is annexed to this Circular. It should be neatly typed and then submitted to the authorities with proper signature etc. and advance copy should also be sent to CGA.
All Branches and Units are requested to give wide publicity of this Circular among the members and guide them for processing their representations.

With warm greetings,
(V. Bhattacharjee)
