Subject: - Computer based AAO (Civil) Examination – Regulation and Syllabus – reg.
This Association is very happy to note from the OM. No. 34012/MF.CGA (E)/AAO Online Exam/Vol.II/1049, dated 15th Jan, 2020 of your office that you have kindly decided to introduce the new computer based AAO (Civil) Examination from the year 2020 onwards and published Regulations and syllabus on 15th January, 2020. This Association has also noted that, majority of the suggestions and proposals offered by it through its letter dated 29-06-2018 and in the formal meeting convened by the CGA authorities on 21st August 2018 including the suggestion for continuation of eight papers in the examination have been accepted and accommodated suitably in the provisions of the Regulations and the Syllabus.
On account of this favorable action of your office, the main portion of the item “ No. 2. Restoration of AAO (Civil) Examination system discontinued since last two years - implementation of the new pattern of examination and continuation of exemptions acquired by the candidates in the old pattern of examination in consideration of proposals given by the AICAEA” submitted by the Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees & Officers Associations vide its MEMORANDUM No.COC/CA/2019/Corr-20 Dated: 02.12.2019 has been settled. A large number of aspiring fresh candidates shall now be able to appear for the examination after waiting for nearly five years.
Therefore, on behalf of the Association, I offer sincere thanks to you and totality of the officers and staff members of your office who have kindly endeavored to resolve this long pending issue.
However, total settlement of the issue is yet to be there, as the entire cross section of candidates who had cleared upto 7(seven) papers and some among them who could not clear their 8th paper for a few marks in the previous system of AAO(Civil) Examination are waiting for justice. Non-consideration of the requests of these set of candidates and the repeated requests of the Association to allow this set of employees to migrate to the new system of Examination with the exemption acquired in the existing system has created a disastrous situation for the career prospects of the candidates who had made their sincere and hard labour to clear those papers. In connection with this, I would like to draw your kind attention towards some of the facts discussed below:-
In view of the above circumstances and as per the opportunity made available for the
stakeholders in para 16.3 of the OM dated 15th Januarys 2020, I on behalf of the Association
have been directed to request you the following-
We request you to kindly convene a meeting with us exclusively on this item at your level in the first week of February 2020 and thereby give us the opportunity to supplement our views we have placed through this letter and there is a settlement of this issue across the table through mutual dialogue so that the candidates who are having exemptions in some of the papers could start their preparations for appearing the forth coming examination immediately with a clear understanding in them.
