All Federal Executive Members,
All Women Committee Members,
All Branch Secretaries of AICAEA and AICAEA CAT-II,
STAGE HALF DAY WALK OUT ON 24TH MARCH 2009
In Protest against Abolition 0f More Than 200 Gr-C& D Posts and Indifferent Attitude of CGA towards the genuine Demands
- Within last two months, Civil Accounts authorities have abolished more than 200 Group C & D posts (Pr.CCA, CBDT-133, Pr. CCA, MEA- 25 and CCA, H&FW- 42) keeping us in dark. All posts abolished are of Peon/ LDC/Stenographers/ Accountants. While more than 47% posts have been created at the Gr.A level, 40%Group C &D posts has been reduced within last nine years ignoring the fact that the departments/ Ministries to which the Civil Accounts organisation has been serving have expanded to a great extent and nearly ten more new Ministries/ Departments have come into existence in the mean time. Civil Accounts authorities (other than, Pr.CCA, CBEC, CCA, Finance and CCA, Home) are now on the effort to create more Gr.A posts through abolition of our posts.
Abolition of posts have not only created heath hazardous work load on us, but our promotional prospects have been diminishing continuously.
- Despite repeated requests, Civil Accounts Authority has not taken any favourable step to resolve the genuine grievances of the employees relating to their pay scales generated after implementation of 6CPC. As such, LDC, Accountant, DEO, Sr. Accountant, Stenographers, Private Secretaries, Junior Accounts Officers and Assistant Accounts Officers of the organisation are working in a most humiliating condition of down graded status.
- None of the assurances given by the Civil Accounts authority and particularly the CGA was fulfilled within last two years. Even the smaller issues like - filling up vacant posts through absorption of persons working on deputation basis/direct recruitment/promotion - grant of recognition to AICAEA CAT II- Conversion of DEO as Accountant - vacation of unjustified vindictive actions taken against the employees by the local administrations of Nagpur and Allahabad - adoption of mutually agreed transfer policy in respect of JAO/AAO - and grant of promotion to non-matriculate Group-D employees qualified Departmental Examination prior to October, 2003 etc. finalized for settlement by the previous CGA were not settled within such a long time. Instead the corrupt and vindictive officers were offered protections and CGA office was filled up with a large number of substandard dealing hands during the period.
In view of the above circumstances and in protest against the anti- employee attitude of the Civil Accounts authorities, it has been decided that, members shall stage half day walk out from office on 24th March 2009. All members are to leave the office on the day after the lunch and not to return to the office on that day.
Branch and Unit Secretaries are requested to mobilise and educate the members by organising meetings and issuing of hand bills etc. to make the programme a grand success.
Intimation on the walk out shall be served to CGA jointly by AICAEA and AICAEA Cat II. No letter may be issued to the local authorities.
Since the Accounts Officers/ Senior Accounts Officers are responsible for running the offices, direct effect of abolition of posts and non filling of vacancies have been falling on them. Hence the Secretary General of All India Association of PAO(C) shall be approached to extend support. All Branch/ Unit Secretaries are also requested to meet the Accounts/Sr. Accounts officers of their stations/ states and urge upon them to extend support.
With warm greetings,
