Chief Executive of Constituent Organizations
and Conveners, local JACs,
An informal meeting of the available representatives of apex level JAC held on 27th November 2015 held in Delhi. Com. M. S. Raja, Chairman, apex JAC and Secretary General, All India Audit and Accounts Association, Com. V. Bhattacharjee, Convener, apex JAC and Secretary General, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, Com. Santosh Kumar, President, All India Postal Accounts Employees Association, Com. T. Satyanaryana, General Secretary, All India Postal Accounts Employees Association, Com. S. Mohan, Secretary General, All India Audit Officers Association, Com. Pijush Roy, Senior leader, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, Com. Subhendu Roy Choudhury, Joint Secretary General were present in the meeting.
At the very outset, the meeting examined the recommendations of the 7CPC in respect Accounts and Audit employees and officers. It was observed that the 7CPC did not consider any of the demands of any of the cadre referred by the Joint Action Committee through its memorandum. The recommendations given are haphazard, confusing and self-contradictory too. Instead of recording the recommendations in respect of organized Accounts and IA&AD under a single Chapter like earlier Pay Commissions, the Commission has discussed and made its recommendations in piece meal in deferent Chapters and Paras, many of which are confusing and self-contradictory in nature.
Under above situations, the meeting felt that the unified approach of apex JAC and preparations for united action of the Accounts and Audit employees are the need of the hour. The meeting took following decisions-
1. A joint Memorandum to Secretary Department of Expenditure shall immediately be sent by the Apex JAC containing the signatures of representatives of all constituents of Apex JAC.
2. The Apex JAC leaders shall take effort to contact the leaders of all constituents including Railway Accounts and Defence Accounts.
3. All Constituents of Apex JAC shall forward the Memorandum to their respective heads of the Department/ organization requesting them to forward the same to the Secretaries Committee and implementation cell constituted/ being constituted for examining the recommendations of 7CPC (shall be emailed).
4. All Branches/ Units/ Circles of Constituents of JAC shall hold demands day on 15th December 2015 by holding lunch hour demonstration at their respective work spots and submit the Resolution (enclosed) to local Head of Office for onward transmission to higher authorities.
5. A National Convention of the Accounts and Audit employees and officers organizations shall be organized in Hyderabad on 10th January 2016 and all constituents are to mobilize required number of participants from their respective organizations (Details being informed shortly).
With warm greetings,
This General body meeting of the……………………………………………(name of Branch/Unit,/Circle Union/ Association)…………….(Station) held today the 15th December2015 records its protest against the retrograde recommendations of 7CPC and urges upon the Government of India to kindly discuss the issues referred by the Staff side National Council JCM and settle those across the table.
The Meeting also urges upon the authorities to kindly refer the request for following modifications and improvements sought on the recommendations of 7CPC by the Joint Action Committee of Accounts and Audit Employees and Officers organizations and make those applicable for the Accounts and Audit employees and Officers working in Organized Accounts and IA&AD.
1. Accounts/Audit Assistant:
The cadre of LDC in the Audit and Accounting formations may be re-designated as Accounts/Audit Assistants and granted the level 4 (Pay Scale of Table 5: Pay Matrix) which is the replacement scale of PB-1 Grade Pay Rs.2400.
2. Accountant/ Auditor:
The analysis and recommendation of the 7th CPC in respect of Accountant/Auditor (Para 11.62.15 – Chapter dealing with Indian Audit and Accounts Department) is not rational. It is requested to reject the said recommendation. Accountant/ Auditor/ Junior Accounts Assistants (in Railways) may kindly be granted the replacement pay scale of PB 2 GP 4200 i.e. level 6 (Pay Scale of Table 5Pay Matrix).
3. Senior Accountant /Auditor
The 7CPC has adopted the most unscientific method to deal with the pay parity issue with the Assistants of Central Secretariat. Assistants of Central Secretariat have been brought down to level 6 in the Pay Matrix and thus settling the parity claims of others. At the same time the Pay protection is allowed to the Assistants already in the G.P. of Rs.4600. This method adopted to negate the claims of pay parity is not rational. Disparity is allowed to continue further by way of Pay Protection. The Senior Accountants/Auditors are claiming higher-grade pay on scientific / historical ground. C&AG and CGA also recommended the higher Grade Pay in his Memorandum to 7th CPC. Appreciating all these facts the Senior Accountants/Auditors / Account Assistants (Railways) should be granted level 7 in the Pay Matrix by treating the Grade Pay of Rs. 4600 as replacement pay.
4. Assistant Accounts Officer:-
It is requested to accept the recommendation of 7 CPC in Para No. 11.12.140 grant of replacement scale of GP 5400(PB-2) i.e. Pay level 9 in the pay matrix to AAOs on completion of four years’ service and extend it to all AAOs working in the Organised Accounts and Audit Departments.
5. Accounts/Audit/Senior Accounts/Audit Officer:-
Grant following replacement Pay scales to Accounts/ Audit /Sr.Accounts/Audit Officers:-
· Audit/Accounts Officer/DAO Gr I GP 6600P B3 level 11 pay scale of Table 5.Pay Matrix
· Sr. Audit/Accounts Officer/DAO (15%) GP 7600 PB 3 level 12 pay scale of Table 5.Pay Matrix
6. Qualification Pay
Implementation of the 7CPC recommendation in Para 8.9.45 and make different types of Qualification Pay applicable to all organized accounts cadres and IA&AD cadres uniformly.
This General Body meeting resolves to forward Resolution to the local Head of the Office for onward transmission to the higher authorities concerned and also to the Convener, apex JAC and Secretary General of the …………………………Association.
