No.COC/CA/2016/Circular-3                                                                                                        dated 07-09-2016
                    The Federal Executive members/ National Executive/ Branch Secretaries
                    of NFCAA and AIAPAO(C)

Dear Comrades,
At the very outset, we congratulate the totality of the AOs and Sr. AOs for making call of Black Badge wearing program on 1st and 2nd September, 2016 in support of the demands raised by CCGGOO an overwhelming success. We also congratulate the members of NFCAA for making the one day strike call given by Central Trade Unions and Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers on 2nd September, 2016 a grand success.
It is nearly two months, this co-ordination committee (COC) did not issue any circular. It is because of various developments at the National level centering the recommendations of 7CPC.  We were required to observe the situation before taking any decision. Therefore, we abstained from taking step in a hurry.
Since the situation emerged now has been indicating the move to be taken by us unitedly, we have discussed the developments at the COC level and decided to revive joint actions in support of our pending demands and on the issue of Cadre Review in particular.
 We were assured by CGA that, as soon as the 7th CPC recommendations are implemented, his office would take appropriate action for referring the demand of Cadre Review to the Ministry of Finance. But, it is more than a month after 7 CPC report has been implement and CGA has not taken any action in this regard.
This apart, the issues like continuation of recognized status of AIAPAO (Civil) – grant of recognition to AICAEA Cat-II – conducting the departmental examinations - issuing orders for posting of AAO(C) qualified candidates - filling up of vacant posts of AAO through adhoc promotions of AAO(C)  Examination qualified persons and senior most Senior Accountants etc. – grant of higher pay scale to DEOs as per the directive of CAT - grant of ACP/MACP benefits to Gr-B&C employees as had been granted in other departments- improvement in promotion prospects of MTS- Improvements in the service conditions benefits  of Stenographers  as available in other departments and various other issues of our combined charter of demands have not made any progress.
In view of the above situations, we have arrived at the conclusion that, unless there are united and
sustained organizational actions by all of us, no action shall be taken by the authorities.  We have therefore, decided to submit joint letter from the apex level organizations on 21st September 2016 to CGA and hold following action programmes. We appeal upon all to implement the programs unitedly:-
1.     Joint Lunch Hour demonstration on 27th September, 2016 in front of senior most Officer of the station and forwarding of Resolution to CGA (Draft Resolution enclosed).
2.     Signature Campaign from 27th September, 2016 onwards for mobilization of members (draft shall be sent separately).
3.     Day Long Joint Dharna at all centers on 26th October 2016. Dispatch of Signature sheets to CGA Jointly by the Branches.
4.     Joint Dharna by Central Working Committee members of AICAEA, AICAEA Cat-II and AIAPAO (Civil) in front of the office of CGA in November, 2016 (date shall be informed later).

Since the programmes decided would be possible to be implemented effectively if the leadership of NFCAA & AIPAO (Civil) works together as one under the common banner of Co-ordination Committee, we have decided that all Branches should form the state/ station/ region level Co-ordination Committees and complete this task within 20th September, 2016. The composition of the Branch/Station level Co-ordination Committee shall be as under:-
Name:- Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Association,………….Branch.
Office Bearers:-
1. Chairpersons:-                        Presidents of the Branches of NFCAA and AIAPAO (Civil)
2.  Joint Conveners:-                   Branch Secretaries of the Branches of NFCAA and AIAPAO (Civil)
3.  Committee Members:-           All Committee members of the Branches of AICAEA,   AICAEA Cat-II    & AIAPAO (Civil)
For the better functioning of the coordination committee, necessary modifications may be done locally.
We further request all (except West Bengal where State level COC exists) that, immediately after formation of local coordination committees, the Central Headquarters concerned may be informed and wide publicity about its formation may be given so that each and every officer and employee of the Branch/ station/ state concerned could know about the formation of the Co-ordination Committee.
With warm greetings
