The All India Association of Pay and Accounts Officers (Civil) has submitted the cadre review proposals for Accounts officer and Senior Accounts Officers on 14th April 2018 to the Controller General of Accounts.
The basic approach of taken by the National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations (NFCAA) and All India Association of Pay and Accounts Officers (Civil) being one and the same, the spirit of unity among three associations prevails. Therefore, persuasion of the demand of early settlement of Cadre Review and other common issues shall continue from the platform of Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Associations.
Other decisions taken by the extended federal executive meeting shall be informed through another circular.
With warm greetings,

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CADRE REVIEW PROPOSAL
SUBMITTED JOINTLY BY
THE CENTRAL HEADQUARTERS OF
ALL INDIA CIVIL ACCOUNTS EMPLOYEES ASSOCIATION
AND
ALL INDIA CIVIL ACCOUNTS EMPLOYEES ASSOCIATION CATEGORY II
(The proposals cover all cadres from the level of MTS to AAOs)

·            Objective of formation of “Departmentalized Accounting Wings” now called as “Civil Accounts Organization” has been achieved but the elevated status of Group B & C cadres ought to be there being a far cry yet - need to be resolved.
·            In last forty two years there is more than 62.5% growth of ICAS cadres and the Group C & D (now MTS) suffered negative growth to the extent of 20% which caused serious imbalance of hierarchical pyramid of the Civil Accounts Organization - needs to be brought in order.
·            In spite of computerization and automation, need for manpower requirements in the lower formations of the organization continued to rise as a natural course due to increase in workload as a result of expansion of Ministries/Departments, introduction of various new schemes and plans with target of making the Digital India a success, at least 25% additional posts in Group B and C cadres may be created.
·            Long pending demand of the Associations on the basis of the scientifically established justification of equal status and pay scales to Group B and C Employees on par with Central Secretariat cadres disturbed repeatedly and denied of late may be restored.
·            Each and every Group B and C personnel from entry level should be made entitled to at least five promotions in the entire service career.
·            In the changed scenario of working condition and responsibilities of the employees, the posts may be upgraded.
·            Concepts of one work one salary, one post one salary and equal pay for equal work may be made the criteria for devising the pay structures in the cadre review process and multiple posts and cadres performing same nature of work may be merged/upgraded to the main functional posts and converted into a single cadre.
·            In order to give minimum relief to the officers and employees from the existing condition of stagnation in same post from the date of appointment and absolute blockage from career advancements, 33.33% posts in all grades may be made promotional posts from lower grades.
·            There should not be more than ten years residency in one post/scale.
·            Following structure of cadres for civil accounts organization (CCAS) should be there.
