Subject: - Non-settlement of long pending issues concerning with Employees & Officers of Civil Accounts Organization.


            We the undersigned have been directed to refer to the above and state that, responding to your office letter  No:- A-11019/25/2018/MF.CGA/NGE/AICAEA/Part/266 dated 18th March, 2020, the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association  and All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category II functioning as the affiliates of  National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations(NFCAA) vide their letter No AICAEA-AICAEA CAT-II/HQ/A-2/2020/140 dated 19.03.2020  had conveyed the  decisions of suspending the scheduled Dharna in front of your office on 19th March 2020 and in front of the office of the Secretary,  Department of Expenditure on 20th March 2020 till the time the crisis of coronavirus arisen in the country settles down. 
Further, immediately after the imposition of lock down, the Civil Accounts organisation was declared as essential service by the Ministry of Finance and ordered the employees and officers of the organisation to complete the payment functions before the close of the financial year on 31st March 2020. The Associations performed as catalysts in this situation and the employees and officers have completed the assigned task within the targeted date risking their lives and the lives of their family members and even facing the atrocities of police in different cities.  Not only this, even now when the pandemic of COVID- 19 is spreading unabated in the country, Civil Accounts employees are performing their duties without even arrangements of basic protective equipment and facilities  like face masks, hand sanitisers and sanitization of office premises etc.
            But even after three weeks of introduction of Unlock 1 by the Government of India, we
haven’t received any favourable response to any of the pending issues either from your end or from the end of the Department of Expenditure. Moreover, after you took over the charge of the Office of the Controller General of Accounts, it is nearly 8(eight) months now you have not even convened a single meeting with the representatives of the Associations while as per  norm prescribed by the Government of India, heads of the departments/ organisations should meet the employees Associations at least in every three months with the objective of resolving the grievances of their employees so that employer-employee relationship is promoted and efficiency of the department is maintained. Therefore, as per this norm, at least two meetings between you and the representatives of the Associations should have taken place till date. But, it is most unfortunately it is to record here that no meeting was convened by you so far.  
            Under the above circumstances, a huge number of grievances of the employees has piled up apart from the long pending issues and hence, there are sufficient justifications that our members have become restive against the apathetic attitude of the authorities towards their genuine problems.
            However, after exhaustive examination of a long list of pending issues, we have been directed to forward only a few very important items with the request to you to resolve them through mutual dialogue across the table.
            Accordingly, we are enclosing herewith the list of items as “Agenda Items” we propose to discuss and request you to kindly make arrangements for the meeting and settlement of the issues.
            We are however, constrained to inform that, if this request letter of ours is also ignored, we shall be forced to resume our protest actions and it would begin on 25th June 2020 with office wise protest meetings.  
            We hope, will kindly examine the enclosed “Agenda Items” personally and take appropriate favourable actions to resolve the grievances of the officers and employees across the table congenially.  
Thanking you,
Yours Sincerely,
Encl: as above
