The delegation had raised objections against the recent orders issued by the authority in respect of the posting and transfers of the persons passed AAO© examination and those who have been promoted as AO from AAO. The delegation pointed out that the transfer orders are being issued without any norm and the authorities are not even maintaining minimum transparency in issuing the orders. Moreover, the CGA office is neither following the instructions of DOPT nor the provisions of the transfer policy adopted and announced by the CGA Office itself. The delegation stated in clear terms that the transfer policy is with full of flaws and authorities have been using it as a tool for harassment to the employees. Further, certain vested interest have been fulfilling their personal objectives by taking advantage of all these situations, The delegation had cited some specific examples from which it was clear that - many paras of the O.M. issued by CGA office on 14th May 2008 on transfer policy is not being followed by CGA office itself.. Preferences for posting to convenient stations given by the individuals as per provision of the O.M.was ignored and ordered for posting in another station. Representations of the candidates where they themselves or their dependents suffering from epilepsy, asthma and cardiac problems etc were also ignored completely and they have been ordered for posting in Islands in the Indian Ocean even. The delegation had mentioned that, such inhuman decisions have brought miseries for many. Recently one of the AAOs who was suffering form heart disease was forcefully posted outstation has expired on the Railway platform. Finally Jt. CGA assured that, the cases pointed out shall be reviewed by him personally.
The Delegation also demanded that, official meeting between CGA and national Executives of the AICAEA and AICAEA CAT II may be arranged at the earliest.
It was demanded by the delegation that the proposals of the Association on the issues like grant of honorarium for checking of Pay fixation cases and revised pension cases and revision of the rate of qualification pay etc are since lying pending with CGA office for nearly one year, orders may be issued with out further delay.
Delegation was surprised to learn from Jt. CGA that, letters of the Association on the above issues and even the Government orders relating to formation of departmental Anomaly Committee was not put up to him by his office. Therefore, this very fact indicates the quality if functiong of highest office of the Civil Accounts Organization.
