RESOLUTION ADOPTED IN EXTENDED FEDERAL COUNCILMEETING HELD AT DELHI ON 3RD AND 4TH OCTOBER 2012
This extended Federal Executive meeting
of the National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations (represented by the
All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and All India Civil Accounts
Employees Association Category-II) held in Delhi on 3rd and 4th
October 2012 noted with anguish over the installation of CCTV Camera inside the
office premise of PAO, BSF, New Delhi by the Civil Accounts authorities.
Monitoring of employees using CCTV is the gross invasion of privacy of
employees especially women. Hence, the representatives of the Association
requested CCA ,MHA during the meeting held on4th July 2012 and asked him to
direct the concerned authority of PAO ,BSF New Delhi to remove the CCTV Cameras
as there is no security threat as
sufficient security arrangement has been provided in the entrance of the office. Moreover,
there is no such provision under the government of India rules to install CCTV Cameras
to monitor employees working inside the office room where the employees are
sitting and working.
During the meeting the official side alleged
that employees are indulging in malpractices which compelled the authorities to
install the CCTV inside the office. The staff side refuted the wild allegation
made by the authorities against the innocent Gr-B & C Employees and
registered its protest. It is nothing but
serious charge which questioning the honesty and integrity of entire employees
of the office. After a prolonged discussion the staff side instead of taking an
adamant stand, requested the authorities to change angle of CCTC Cameras in such a manner that the employees are able
to work comfortably without any fear of
invasion of their privacy. Although the authorities had assured that they would
take necessary steps in this respect but even after lapse of three months no
action has been taken.
This meeting therefore, once again
requests the CCA, Ministry of Home Affairs to direct the local administration
of PAO, BSF to take necessary action in consultation with the Branch Committee
members of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association South end Branch,
Delhi, i. e. the PAO, BSF Delhi without any further delay.
This meeting resolves that, if the
matter is not settled the Association shall have no other alternative but to adopt
the path of agitation and the Association shall not be responsible for any
disturbance of prevailing congenial atmosphere in the Civil Accounts
The meeting resolves to forward the
Resolution to CCA, MHA and CGA.
