Subject: - Canvassing of political and other outside influence in matters arising out of service.
Reference:- Your office vide OM No:- A-32014/1/2002/MFCGA/Gr.B/Vol.III/Policy/ Pt.file/225 dated 21st February, 2017
Your office vide above OM has conveyed that your office has observed there is a substantial increase in number of VIP references regarding transfer and posting from Gr-B/Gr-C Officers/officials in violation of Rule 20 of the CCS (conduct) Rules, 1964 and any instance of violation of these rules/orders would be viewed seriously and the employees(s) responsible for such violation would be dealt with under the rules.
We appreciate the decision taken by your office and request you to undo all the transfers effected through VIP references and do justice to those employees and officer who have been denied their legitimately due transfers due to the transfers done by your office on the basis of VIP references.
Further, due to non-implementation of transfer policy of AAO/PAO in a transparent manner by the Civil Accounts authorities, many innocent officials are facing deprivation and their families are suffering.
In this respect, we would like to invite your kind attention to the Resolution dated 19th January 2017 adopted by the Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Associations, Tamilnadu and Pondicherry Branch, Chennai and forwarded to your good-self vide forwarding No. COC/T&P/2017 dated 20.01.2017(copy enclosed). Through the said resolution, the Co-ordination Committee has brought it to your kind information that, one Shri B. Somasundaram, AAO working in CBEC, Chennai was promoted as Accounts Officer and posted to PFMS, Trivandrum. But the authorities of the Principal CCA, CBEC did not relieve him for months together and now his transfer order has been cancelled by your office and he has been promoted and posted as Accounts Officer in CBEC, Chennai itself against the leave vacancy of Shri. M. Boopalachandran, Sr. AO. There are several AAOs who are senior to Shri B. Somasundaram had moved out of station by honoring the Transfer Policy and obeying the orders of CGA. But they are waiting for their turn to be posted back to their choice station i.e. Chennai. Moreover, as a standing policy in the Civil Accounts Organisation no person is given promotion in the same office. But this criterion has not also been followed in the instant case.
Since the above situation is a gross violation of the provisions of the transfer policy framed by your office itself and a case of favoritism, the Co-ordination committee of Tamilnadu has endeavored its best to invite your kind attention by forwarding resolutions and holding protest actions like wearing of Black Badges, lunch hour meetings and signature campaign etc. during the past few days.
This Association endorses the approach and request of the Co-ordination Committee of Tamilnadu and Pondicherry Branch and requests you to kindly intervene personally into the matter and ensure implementation of the transfer policy in a transparent manner so that the employees and officers of the Civil Accounts Organisation could feel that they are working under a fair and judicious authority.
