Dear Comrades,

We are at the penultimate days of 2017. The year had progressed marking our united struggle along with the All India Association of Pay and Accounts Officers (Civil) under the banner of Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees & Officers Associations for realization of our common Charter of Demands. Our first united action programme in 2017 had started on 20th January, 2017 with lunch hour demonstration. We went to the extent of sending resolution on 13th July 2017 to the Prime Minister of India and staging half day walk out on 13th September, 2017. Other than Delhi and some stations of Northern India, members from rest of the country had participated in the half day walkout and made it a grand success.  Our last programme during the year was the round the clock mass dharna from 7th to 8th December, 2017 in front of Controller General of Account’s Office, New Delhi in which hundreds of Officers and Employees of from entire length and breadth the country had participated. As a result the authorities responded.
Through our struggle we could successfully change the recourse of many issues. We could successfully stop the authorities from filling up 643 vacant posts of AAOs by bringing persons on deputation basis from other departments.  We could compel the authorities to grant adhoc promotions to eligible Senior Accountants as AAOs in terms of the orders issued by Controller General of Accounts on 30th December 2016.  We could be successful in getting the Departmental Examination System restored for all Cadres.  We could create the compulsion for the authorities to complete the membership re-verification and verification processes of All India Association of Pay and Accounts Officers (Civil) and All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category II respectively. One of our major achievements in 2017 is the formation of independent Departmental Council (JCM) under Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance which is represented exclusively by the Civil Accounts Employees. Despite all negative efforts by a section of the officers of CGA office, we could create compulsion on the CGA authorities to co-operate with the Department of Expenditure in their endeavor for forming the Departmental Council.
Not only departmental issues, we have also played a pivotal role in building up Central Government Employees movement under the banner of Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers and could achieve a lot of common demands of the Central Government Employees. All these could be possible because of the co-operation, scarifies and support by our members.  We offer our sincere thanks to all of them.
The New Year 2018 is now knocking at the door and we are yet to achieve many of our demands. Therefore,
we shall have to carry forward our struggles. We are sure, if we carry forward the united struggle we shall definitely achieve our pending demands.
On behalf of the National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations, we wish the readers of this Circular a very a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2018 and aspire that, our members shall continue to offer their support so that our unsolved issues are settled.
Our next course of action on the demand of settlement of Departmental demands is one day token strike on 15th March2018. Therefore, please prepare for the same.

Apart from resorting to Industrial action on 15th March, 2018 it was also decided by the COC of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Associations during the ongoing round the clock mass dharna from 7th to 8th December, 2017 that, Reminder Day-1 on 8th January, 2018 (Monday) and Reminder Day-II on 8th February, 2018 (Thursday) respectively shall be observed by all local COCs/Branches at their respective stations. On these days the local COCs/Branches shall hold a centralized meeting to inform the progress of the 15 Point Charter of Demands to the members and thereafter adopt a resolution and forward it to the Controller General of Accounts.
The Branches are therefore, requested to contact the Branches of AIAPAO (Civil) and observe REMINDER DAY-I on 8th January, 2018 unitedly. The Resolution to be adopted and forwarded to Controller General of Accounts is furnished in the COC Circular No. 16 dated 29th December 2017.

CGA office vide letter dated 20th December 2017 has requested AICAEA to provide certain informations against demands No. 3©, 11(ii) (a) and (b), 11(iv), 11(vii) and 13 respectively. Since we need some feedback for giving reply against item No.11 (iv), you are requested to furnish following informations by return of post/e-mail to the Central Headquarter.
1.      Whether any MTS is in receipt of two ACP benefits before 31.08.2008 and third MACP on or after 01.09.2008.
2.      If so, names of the MTS, Ministry/Department and PAO with Station with details.
3.      Grade Pay after 2nd ACP and 3rd MACP respectively.
4.      Further details if any.
Till we submit this information, Controller General of Accounts Office shall not fix the meeting. Therefore, please respond early. If no case is there in your Branch, please send a ‘NIL’ report without fail.

CGA office has drafted and circulated a Recruitment Rule for AAOs which is totally anti-employee. If this recruitment rule is adopted, career prospects of Civil Accounts cadres shall be ruined. We shall have to register our strong protest against the move and also send our views to CGA.

Therefore, all of you are requested to hold Branch meeting and send the views of your Branch within 4th January 2018 by email only so that the all India headquarters could submit the summed up view to CGA within 10th January 2018. No individual opinion in the Whatsapp shall be taken into consideration. If any individual member wishes to send their opinion, they shall have to route their opinion through the unit and Branch only.

With warm greetings,
(V. Bhattacharjee)
Secretary General
