Subject: Minutes of the meeting held with CGA on 12/12/2011.
I have been directed to refer your office letter No: - A-11019/25/2011/MF. CGA(A)/NGE/AICAEA-HQ/581 dated 06/02/2011 on the above mentioned subject and state that, all the National Executive Members of this Association attended the meeting held on 12th December 2011 under your Chairpersonship have examined the minutes of the meeting and directed me to convey following observations of the National Executive Committee on the whole:-
1. It was categorically assured personally by the Chairman of the meeting to the National Executive members present in the meeting that the final copy of Minutes shall be issued after consulting the available representatives of the National Executives of the Association at the draft stage. Accordingly, Secretary General had approached the Accounts Officer concerned several times and requested him to kindly intimate the date and time of discussion on the draft minutes. But he did not respond. On 18th January 2012, when Secretary General and Finance Secretary had met Smt. Sonali Singh, Jt. CGA, she assured that the minutes would be issued within seven days and before finalization, it would definitely be shown to the available National Executives for their views. Again on 8th February 2012, when Secretary General talked to Shri Deepak Tripathi, Dy. CGA on some other matters, he had requested for a discussion on the draft minute also. Responding to the request of Secretary General, Shri Tripathi had assured that the discussion would be done soon. But infact the minutes were unilaterally finalized and dispatched on 6th February 2012 to the Association.
Such type of an undignified approach and ignoring of JCM norms by the office of the highest authority of the organization are not acceptable and appreciable.
3. Decision of closing down even a single item was neither proposed nor discussed in the meeting. But unprecedentedly and undemocratically 12 out of 20 items have been shown as closed in minutes. Moreover, while putting the unilateral remark “As such, the items stands closed”, it has not been considered whether the minutes against the item drafted was actually conveying the spirit of the discussion or not, and whether the contents of the minutes is conveying any conclusion or not.
Unilaterally closing down the issues of Employees Association after mutual dialogue across the table is thus autocratic and untenable.
The National Executive therefore, directed me to request you to ask your office to treat the above minutes prepared hastily and forwarded by them to this Association to treat as a draft minutes and issue a fresh minutes after discussing with the available National Executive members of Association.
The National Executive shall meet at Nagpur on 22nd of this month. The meeting shall review the outcome of the meeting held with the authority on 12th December 2011 and current status of those items discussed. While doing so, the meeting of the National Executive shall no doubt keep it in its consideration that, you would not kindly ignore this letter and thereby ensure that the prevailing congenial atmosphere between the employees and authorities is not disturbed and there is no agitational action by the Employees Associations.
Copy to All National Executive Members.
