(b)   Cadre review and revival of movement under the banner of the COC of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Associations and functioning of COC at different levels.
It was  noted  by the meeting that, the  Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Associations had met in Mumbai on 1st June 2016 and decided to resort to organizational actions like Branch wise Dharna  and centralized Dharna  in front of CGA office some times in June and July 2016  respectively on following demands-
1.       Cadre review of Group B and C cadres
2.       Continuation of recognized status of AIAPAO(Civil)
3.       Grant of Recognition to AICAEACAT II.
These decisions were circulated by the Co-ordination Committee vide its Circular No.2 dated 03-06-2016.
The meeting of the extended federal executives endorsed the decisions of the Co-ordination Committee. However, due to serving strike notice of indefinite strike from 11th July 2016 jointly by all Associations even for these three demands too, the meeting proposed that situation may be reviewed by the Co-ordination Committee  after the Indefinite Strike and thereafter decide about the next course of action.
(c)       Attack on members of PAO, CBEC, Jaipur -  regarding
The meeting noted that, in addition Jaipur, members of many other offices are under attack and severe attacks have been launched in PAO, CBEC, Madurai. The meeting therefore, considered the situations prevailing in all those offices one by one and took decisions accordingly.
Jaipur: For the last six months the employees working in the PAO have been facing various atrocities of the local administration. The Unit Association when requested the PAO to resolve the matter, he refused.   The matter was then brought to the knowledge of the higher authorities. But they took an aggressive attitude towards the employees and the CCA, CBEC himself alongwith his team of officers from the administration of Pr. Accounts office visited the PAO, CBEC, Jaipur with the intention to identify the protesters and transfer  them to other stations. But the members of the Unit stood unitedly; they revealed more fact of harassing the women employees. The Unit Association and the AICAEA, Rajasthan Branch took united stand and wrote to PCCA, CBEC, CGA and Central Headquarters of AICAEA formally narrating the situation. Accordingly, the Central headquarters of AICAEA furnished full facts with evidences to the Principal CCA, CBEC and the Controller General of Accounts.  However, reluctance on the part of PCCA, CBEC to negotiate had compelled the NFCAA headquarters to mobilize the leaders of the Branches of Delhi and hold a forced negotiation. 
After this meeting, the women employees of the office have submitted individual representations to the Pr. CCA, CBEC explaining the incidents of misbehavior they have been facing. But the administration Pr. CBEC did not taken any tangible action.  However, due to unity of the members of the Association and intervention of CGA, the PCCA, CBEC has finally setup an inquiry committee. 
The meeting of the extended federal executives while hailing the members of Rajasthan Brach as a whole and PAO, CBEC, Jaipur  in particular for exhibition of exemplary unity decided that,  struggle should continue and NFCAA shall  exert with full  capacity to  provide  justice to  the members of PAO, CBEC, Jaipur.
Madurai: the local administration of PAO, CBEC, Madurai had conspired to remove some of the members from the office to curb the strength of the Unit Association. As such it had recommended for transfer of two members in violation of the policies of Department of Personnel and Training and the directives of Central Vigilance Commission circulated by the CGA through OM dated 15-12-2015.  Learning this fact, the Unit Association had approached the Dy. CA, Chennai and the PCCA, CBEC, New Delhi under intimation to Tamilnadu and Pondicherry Branch and Central Headquarters of NFCAA. Committee members of AICAEA and AICAEACAT II, Tamilnadu and Pondicherry Branch had met the Dy. CA, CBEC, Chennai and requested him vide letter dated 20-05-2016 that the transfer of persons being totally against the interest of the office and employees as there are vacancies in the PAO, Central Excise, Madurai itself, the move to transfer the officials from the office may be avoided by filling up of posts in the other stations through direct recruitments etc. But the Dy.CA recommended for transfer of two members and the Pr. CCA CCA, CBEC vide an order dated 1st June 2016 had ordered for transferred of two employees vindictively to PAO, Central Excise Tiunelveli  form Madurai.  Among the persons transferred, one had gone to Madurai by seeking transfer on personal request from Chennai and the other person is a physically handicapped one.
In protest against this, Unit has resorted to pen down strike instantly and it has been continuing.  The Branches of Tamilnadu and Pondicherry have also been demonstrating in front of the office of the Dy. CA.CBEC, Chennai.
Midst all these, when Secretary General met CCA, CBEC and pointed out the lapses  in the  orders, he accepted the mistakes and revoked the orders partially through withdrawal of orders of only one of the employees who is physically handicapped. But no action to put the entire situation in order has been taken by the administration.
The meeting of the Federal executives hailed the members of PAO, CBEC, Maduari and considering the gravity of the situation adopted a Resolution protesting the actions of the authorities and forwarded to all concerned. The meeting also directed all Branches to resort to immediate protest demonstrations in front of CBEC units of all stations/ Branch headquarters. The meeting further directed the federation headquarters to take required decisions according to the developments of the situations.
Till this circular is prepared, demonstrations had started in Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Cochin. Observing that the protest is becoming more militant and spreading throughout the country, the PAO, CBEC, Madurai and Dy.CA, CBEC, Chennai negotiated with the Unit and Branch respectively on 14th June 2016 and assured that recommendations for reversal of transfer orders of the member concerned and no disciplinary action against agitation shall be made to the higher authority. After this development, Secretary General discussed with the CCA, CBEC who expressed that the action shall rely on the recommendations of lower authorities. In view of this the Unit took the decision of suspending the pen down strike temporarily and resume normal functioning of the office.
Hyderabad: The PAO, Ministry of HRD Unit, Hyderabad has been protesting for the quite some time past against the harassment to the members by the local administration.  The working atmosphere of the office has been totally vitiated due to undisciplined functioning of the local administration itself. Responding to the agitation by the Unit Association and Andhra Pradesh Branch, though the higher authorities have intervened but they have not taken any tangible action so far. The Federation Headquarters has also discussed the matter with the authorities.
In view of this situation, the meeting of the Federal Executives decided that, if no action is taken by the authorities immediately, federation headquarters should take decisions according to the need of the situation.
Delhi: In Pr. Accounts office, Ministry of Agriculture, New Delhi a vindictive transfer order was issued in the last week of May 2016 to one of the members who stood witness to the abusive language used by one of PAOs towards the employees. The Unit and Branch Associations reacted sharply and decided to resist the attack. The higher authorities however, acted rationally and after holding dialogue the representatives of the Branches and Headquarters of NFCAA withdrew the transfer order.
The meeting of the federal executives congratulated the Unit concerned and the Delhi Branch for their united and timely action.
Agenda No.4. Organizational review
a)      Holding of 7th Federal Council meeting of NFCAA
                It has been decided unanimously that the 7th Federal Council meeting of NFCAA along with the Central Working Committee Meetings of AICAEA and AICAEA CAT II shall be held in Jaipur in November 2016. The Branches of Rajasthan shall therefore, conduct their Branch Conferences immediately by inviting the Secretary Generals of both Associations and also start preparations for the 7th Federal Council meeting.
            All other Branches have been directed by the meeting to extend financial and organizational co-operation to the host Branches. It has been assured by Federal Executive members and Branch Secretaries from different Branches that all co-operations shall be extended by them for making the 7th Federal Council Meeting at Jaipur a grand success.
Formation of NFCAA Branches
                It has also been decided that, as per the standing decision of the NFCAA, the Branches NFCAA should be revived /formed immediately. The decisions taken in the earlier meetings of NFCAA may be circulated once again by the federation headquarters. 
b)      Recognition to AICAEA Cat-II & NFCAA.
It was once again observed by the meeting that the authorities are not inclined to accord recognition to the AICAEA CAT II and hence, the question of recognition to NFCAA is still far away.  The attention of the meeting was also invited regarding promotion of parallelism by the authorities in contravention of the provisions of the rules.   
The meeting therefore, emphasized that AICAEACAT II is essential to be recognized and all efforts in this direction shall have to be taken.
The meeting appealed upon the members to defeat the attempt of destroying the unity of the employees and strengthen the AICAEACAT II by continuing their membership in the Association which is a 12 years old organization of AAOs and fighting for the causes of the cadre along with the rest of Service Associations of Civil Accounts organization shoulder to shoulder without even having the recognized status.
It was further decided by the meeting that the AICAEA CAT II may meet in its National Executives Meeting immediately and decide the step to be taken by it for uniting the AAOs.
c)       Enhancement of membership and continuation of Foreign Service of Secretary General.
It was observed by the meeting that there were improvements in membership strength and majority of the members of AICAEA are subscribing under the revised rate of subscription. But the membership subscription is not regular except a few Branches of AICAEA. Units of Punjab, Haryana, Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh are not paying any subscription for years together. Much improvement is required in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, North East, Gujrat etc.
Above situation has been considered as very serious as the functioning of the Association and Foreign Service of the Secretary General is dependent on the regularity and quantum of membership subscriptions.  The meeting therefore, requested the members to appreciate the fact that without finance organization can never provide better service to the members and appealed upon them to ensure deduction of their subscription and remittance of the amount to the organization.
As regards Delhi, the meeting directed the Delhi branches to units regularly and ensure visit of atleast one unit every day.
d)      Unit and Branch Conferences and Branch level women convention.
While deliberating on this issue, the meeting observed that, much effort to visit stations and reactivating the Branches were taken during the period. Secretary General and Finance Secretary of AICAEA had visited Bhopal units in April 2016 and one of the Comrades from Indore had lended his best co-operation of the success of the visit. All units of Bhopal held their elections but the Branch Conference has to take place.
A team of the available leaders of the NFCAA, Delhi visited Southend Branch Delhi in May 2016 and requested the members to hold the Branch Conference at the earliest.
Secretary General and Com. Ravishankar Tank, Asstt. Secretary General, AICAEA visited the Units of Dehradun in May 2016. Since many new Units have now come to existence in Uttarakhand, the Units have assured that they shall form the Branch at the earliest. 
A composite team of office bearers of AICAEA, AICAEA CATII and AIAPAO (Civil) from Mumbai had visited Pune and Nashik in May 2016. Branches of all three Associations have been formed in these stations during the visit of the team.
The meeting requested all Branches/ Stations/ states yet to hold their Branch Conferences to complete the same within 31st August 2016 so that they are able to depute Delegates in the 7th Federal Council meeting of NFCAA scheduled to be held at Jaipur tentatively in November 2016.
Agenda No.5 Pendency of staff problems in different Ministries/Departments – non settlement regarding
In view of the long pendency of issues concerning with the members working under Ministry of Home Affairs, the extended federal executives meeting decided that, Pr. CCA, MHA should be once again approached for conducting the meeting. All Branches may send the pending items from their Units urgently.  In case no meeting takes place, organizational actions should be adopted.
The AICAEA, Delhi Branch reported that the Pr. CCA, CBEC unit, Delhi vide a resolution dated 8th June 2016 has decided to refer 14 demands of the Unit pending  for discussion with the Principal CCA, CBEC Branch  requested to take  up  the items with  the Principal CCA, CBEC alongwith the issues of other units and Branches of the country and accommodate the executive committee members of the unit Association in the team of representatives who shall negotiate the items with authorities of Pr. CCA, CBEC, Delhi. The meeting of the Federal Executives has accordingly decided to take up all issues of CBEC Unit, Delhi together with the issues of other Units with the Pr. CCA, CBEC and directed all Branches to send the items immediately.
Agenda No.6. Common movements of Accounts and Audit employees and officers and functioning of joint Action Committee of Accounts and Audit employees and Officers organizations.
The meeting while reviewing the functioning of apex JAC and its local formations, observed that all tiers of the JAC have become non-functional. Though the NFCAA had implemented all the decisions including signature campaign taken in the National Convention of the Accounts and Audit Employees and Officers held at Hyderabad on 10th January 2016, but Signature campaign call was not implemented by other constituents. The Meeting therefore, decided to approach the Chairman for discussing about the continuation of JAC and restoration of the functioning of the JAC.
Agenda No.7.Misc, if any with the permission of chair.
Distress of Com Jitendra Prasad, AAO, posted in PAO, Patent and Trade Marks, Mumbai for last one year on the allegation of his involvement in  financial  irregularities occurred in the PAO was deliberated in the meeting. He is under the inquiry process of CBI. Since individual is a victim of the circumstance, the matter was discussed by Com. Ajay K Patole and V. Bhattacharjee with CGA also during all India Conference in Chennai. As he is having liability and facing lots of financial difficulties in maintaining the family and dealing the legal matters, the Mumbai Branch had extended him financial support. Now, the Mumbai Branches have requested all to extend their supporting hand to Com. Jitender Prasad so that he and his family can be supported financially. In view of this, the meeting decided to appeal upon all Civil Account employees of the country to contribute generously and urgently. All contributions should be accumulated at the Branches and forwarded directly to Mumbai Branch under intimation to federation headquarters.  For remitting the money Com. Ajay K. Patole (Mob. No.09820107720) or Com. Rajesh Singh (Mob. No.07738568753) may be contacted.
It was also discussed and decided that the issues of proportionate expansions of the PAO/ Civil Accounts setup
due to further expansion of the Commissionerate of Central Excise and enhancement powers of PAOs of CBEC regarding reimbursement of medical claims shall be taken up with the authorities.
The meeting was thereafter declared as over by the President.
With warm greetings,
(V.Bhattacharjee)
Secretary General

But the transfer orders had been issued by the administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC in violation of the policies of Department of Personnel and Training, Government of India instructions and also the directives of Central Vigilance Commission circulated by the CGA through OM dated 15-12-2015.
When the Secretary General of AICAEA had pointed out these lapses in the said orders to the CCA, CBEC, New Delhi he accepted the mistakes and thereby the administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC has revoked the orders partially through withdrawal of orders of only one of the employees who is physically handicapped. But no action to put the entire situation in order has been taken by the administration so far.
2.      For the last six months the employees working in the PAO, Central Excise, Jaipur have been facing various atrocities of the local administration. Since there is no working environment in the office due to the misbehavior of the officers operating the administration, the employees, the AICAEA, Rajasthan Branch and finally the All India Associations furnished the full facts with evidences to the authorities of Principal CCA, CBEC and the Controller General of Accounts.  These apart, the women employees of the office also submitted individual representations to the Pr. CCA, CBEC authorities explaining the incidents of misbehavior they have been facing. But the administration Pr. CBEC has not taken any tangible action to resolve such a serious and sensitive matter at the required pace. 
This meeting therefore, urges upon the higher authorities to resolve above issues through mutual dialogue with the representatives of the Associations so that protest actions of the employees do not spread intensively throughout the country. 
            The meeting resolves to forward the copies of this resolution to
1.      The Secretary, Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance,
2.      The Secretary Department of Revenue, Ministry of Finance,
3.      The Controller General of Accounts, Ministry of Finance and
4.      The Pr. Chief Controller of Accounts, Central Board of Excise and Customs, New Delhi.
