Acharya Kolkata participated in the discussion. However, the house altogether was against the unilateral imposition of the e-payment system in the Civil Accounts Organisation and also was of the view that the matter should be discussed by the authority to resolve it across the table.

3.     Problems in ZAOS of CBDT:-

The item was initiated by Com.S.P.Roy,

The meeting was agreed to be convened by him in April 2012. but subsequently he had backed out without assigning any valid reason.  This is not at all appreciable. However, some of problems referred by the Association have been resolved by his office in the mean time.

 Retaliating the letter of the AICAEA to Pr. CCA, CBDT on the various anti-employee activities of the CA, CBDT, Mumbai, the  CA, CBDT, Mumbai had ordered for deduction of pay of the employees participated in the one day general Strike on 28th February2012.

The Federal Council meeting directed Secretary General to take up the matter directly with the Pr. CCA, CBDT.

Huparikar and Com. P. M. Viswamitra (Hyderabad) participated in the discussion. However, due to paucity of time, majority of the Councilors could not study the document properly and hence most of them were not in a position to place their views in this respect.
