3. Attack on members of PAOs, Central Excise Jaipur and Madurai:-
The meeting took the stock of the situation and observed certain positive developments. CGA has intervened effectively and asked Pr. CCA, CBEC to settle the problems in both the offices. Pr. CCA, CBEC met the delegation of Delhi based office bearers of AICAEA on 9th August 2016 and ordered for payment of salary of Com. Velapathy Pandian of Madurai. Com. Velapathy Pandian was not paid salary for more than two months.
After detailed discussion, the meeting passed a resolution and forwarded it to all concerned. The copy of the resolution is annexed to this circular.
It has however, been decided that, if no effective measure to resolve the problems in Jaipur and Madurai are taken by the authorities within reasonable period of time, the Federation Headquarters shall review the situation and take decision on next cause of action.
4. 7th CPC related issues:- Pay Scales of Civil Accounts Cadres:-
CGA vide an OM dated 10.08.2016 issued orders prescribing the revised Pay Scales applicable to different cadres after implementation of 7th CPC report. However, the Central Headquarters of AICAEA vide its letter dated 14th August 2016 raised the demand of granting higher pay scales to the cadres like AAO, Sr. Acctt, Private Secretary and Sr. Private Secretary etc. The copy of the letter has already been circulated/posted in website.
The meeting directed federation headquarters to continue persuasion of the demands raised.
5. Status of Cadre review:-
The status of the demand of Cadre Review was also reviewed by the meeting. It was reported in the meeting that the authorities have decided to finalize the proposal of cadre review and recommended to the higher authorities.
In view of this, meeting directed Secretary General to ascertain the latest position of the demand and take necessary action as per the need of the situation.
6. Organizational review:-
The meeting also reviewed the position of the organization. It has been observed that, though the AICAEA, Gujrat Branch and Rajasthan Branch have held their Conferences, but many units and Branches are yet to hold their conferences. Membership Subscription from some members/Units of both AICAEA and AICAEA Cat-II are long due. Such a situation has been causing impediment in functions of the organization. Moreover, due to shortage of fund, Branches and Units are suffering and they are unable to function up to the expectation of the members.
The meeting after examining all aspects made following appeal to the members:-
1. Strengthen the organization through democratic exercises – hold conferences of Branches and units.
2. Ensure deduction of membership subscription so that recognition and the seats in the National Council JCM and Department Council JCM could be retained by the Association.
3. Contribute Rs:- 200/- (Rupees two hundred only) as special contribution from arrears of 7th CPC for stabilization of the fund position of Branches, Central Headquarters and Federation Headquarters. The amount would be equally shared by Branches and Central Headquarters @ Rs:- 100/- (Rupees one hundred only) per member. However, Branches may take their own decision for raising more fund if they decide so.
The meeting was declared over after the above discussions were over.
With warm greetings,
This meeting of the available Federal Executive members of National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations represented by the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category-II held today i.e. 18th August 2016 in Chennai deliberated on the up-to-date situations in PAO, Central Excise, Jaipur and PAO, Central Excise, Madurai.
The meeting is very happy to note that the Controller General of Accounts was kind enough to intervene into the state of affairs of the Pay and Accounts offices of CBEC, Jaipur and Madurai. His office on the whole has sought an effective intervention of Pr. CCA, CBEC for settlement of situation arisen in both the offices. The meeting therefore, conveys it’s sincere thanks to the Controller General of Accounts and all other officers of his office.
The meeting is also happy to note that, the Pr. CCA, CBEC had personally interacted with the Delhi based representatives of the Association on 9th August 2016 and agreed to respond positively. She had instantly instructed her administration to release of salary of the official transferred from Madurai to out of station and not paid salary by the PAO, CBEC, Madurai for two and a half months. The meeting therefore, conveys it’s thanks to the Principal CCA, CBEC for the sympathetic and humanitarian action taken by her.
The meeting however, observed that the administration of the Pr. CCA, CBEC has not taken any tangible step to settle the situation prevailing in PAO, Central Excise, Jaipur for last six months. Though the fact of the incidents and grievances of the employees had been systematically brought to the notice of the authorities by the Unit, Branch and Central Headquarters of the Association respectively but administration of the Pr. CCA, CBEC has been trying to process the so called inquiry against the grievances of employees by ignoring the Association and official procedure. Not only this, the administration is creating pressure on the individual employees in different forms which are nothing but attempts of drifting the focus of the issue to a different direction.
As regards the situation prevailing in PAO, Central Excise, Madurai, the meeting of the Federal Executives examined the reporting of the meeting held on 9th August 2016 in Delhi between the Pr. CBEC and the Delhi based representatives of the Association and also the subsequent discussion held in the informal meeting on 17th of August 2017 between the Dy.CA, CBEC, South Zone, Chennai and the delegation of National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations composed of Shri S. Bhattacharjee, President, Shri B. Sitaram, Vice President, Shri V. Bhattacharjee, Secretary General, Shri A. Balasubramaniam, Asstt. Secretary General, AICAEA, Shri G. K. Nair, Secretary General and Shri. M.S. Manivasan, Finance Secretary, AICAEACAT II. It was clearly evident before the meeting of the federal executive that the situation in Madurai was created due to the direct nexus between AO of PAO, Central Excise, Madurai and the administration of Principal CCA, CBEC. The PAO of Central Excise, Madurai being occupied with vested interests has been pouring in false and fictitious reports about the staff position to the administration of Pr. CCA, CBEC. Reportedly, he had gone to the extent of manipulating the seniority of the employees of his office and sending false work allocation reports to the office of the Pr.CCA, CBEC. On the other hand, the administration of the Pr. CCA, CBEC also kept various informations and reporting of the zonal head of the south zone away from the notice of higher authorities i.e. Pr. CCA, CBEC. It was extremely surprising for the meeting of the federal executives to find that the representation of the individual who had been transferred vindictively from Madurai was forwarded by the Dy. CA. CBEC South Zone, Chennai, but it was not placed for consideration of Pr. CCA, CBEC for nearly two months by her administration. The fact of submission of representation by the affected official concerned and its forwarding to the office of the Pr. CCA, CBEC by the Dy.CA, CBEC, South Zone, Chennai came to surface on 9th August 2016 when the representatives of the Association reported the matter to the Pr. CCA, CBEC.
This meeting therefore, deplores the activities of the local administrations of PAOs of Central Excise, Jaipur and Madurai and also the actions of the administration of the Pr. CCA, CBEC as they are responsible for creating turmoil in the offices by handling the issues without following the measures laid down by the government of India and by not keeping the senior authorities i.e. Pr. CCA, CBEC and the CGA properly informed.
Considering the gravity of the situation emerged as an outcome of the above discussion, the meeting resolved to urge upon the Principal Chief Controller of Accounts, CBEC and the Controller General of Accounts to kindly intervene personally and settle the stalemate in PAO, Central Excise, Jaipur and PAO, Central Excise, Madurai at the earliest.
The meeting also resolves that the Resolution adopted shall be forwarded to the Controller General of Accounts and the Principal Chief Controller of Accounts, Central Board of Excise and Customs and all others concerned.
