RESOLUTION

This extended Federal Executive meeting of the National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations (NFCAA) represented by All India Civil Accounts Employees Association (AICAEA) and All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category-II held today the 29th April 2015 deliberated on the incident of refusal of Smti. Krishna Tyagi, CCA, CBEC to hold meeting with the National Executives of the Associations after inviting them for the formal meeting.

            It is more than a year; the authorities of the Pr. CCA, CBEC have not been conceding any of the requests of the employees, harassing them on one plea or the other and pursuing vindictive attitude towards those employees who are raising their voice against injustice and keeping relation with the Association activities. In fact, a condition of complete lawlessness is prevailing in the entire Civil Accounts setup of CBEC and the employees are confronting very serious difficulties in disposing their day to day work.

            The Pr. CCA and the CCA, CBEC are not following any of the rules of the Government of India and acting according to their whims and fancies.  They are not only refusing to abide by the Orders of Government of India and Controller General of Accounts applicable to the employees but have gone to the extent of refusing TA claims of the officials who have performed election duties  during Loksabha and Assembly Elections. They devised their own method of staff justification ignoring the SIU norms prescribed by the Government of India for staff justification and also took the decision of declaring a section of the employees as surplus without even consulting Controller General of Accounts who is the highest authority in the Civil Accounts organization.

            The obvious resultant adverse affect being the anguish, resentment and unrest among the employees, the AICAEA & AICAEA Category-II functioning under the banner of NFCAA took its best effort to resolve the deadlock across the table. But the Pr. CCA as well as CCA preferred to maintain their adamant attitude and they neither resolved any of the issues concerning with the employees including making provisions for minimum sitting arrangement of the employees  nor agreed to meet the representatives of employees Associations to maintain congenial atmosphere .

            Only after series of agitational actions by the NFCAA including a day long Dharna by the National level representatives of the NFCAA in front of office of the Principal CCA, CBEC on 25th February 2015, the Administration of the Office of Pr. CCA, CBEC vide letter dated 09.04.2014 informed the Association that the CCA, CBEC shall hold a formal meeting with the National Executives of both AICAEA and AICAEA Category-II on 29th April 2015. But, when the National Executive members of both Associations reached her office, in AGCR Building, New Delhi from different parts of the country, she refused to hold any meeting with the National Executives of the Associations and took the inflexible stand that she would meet only five individuals.

            The action of CCA, CBEC clearly shows that she had no intention to resolve the problems but to provoke the employees Associations to react.

            This meeting of Federal Executives condemns the above actions of the CCA, CBEC and demands immediate intervention and appropriate corrective actions against such type of an officer.

            The meeting resolves to forward the copies of this resolution to the Secretary, Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance, the Secretary Department of Revenue, Ministry of Finance, the Controller General of Accounts, Ministry of Finance, the Secretary, Ministry of Power and all others concerned.
