As informed already, late (Com.) Durgesh Panigrahi, ex AAO, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Mumbai  had died of severe cardiac arrest on the Platform of Ahmedabad Railway Station on 18th May 2010 due to the anti employee  transfer policy for the AAOs  and its  malicious operation by the CGA office.

            Mrs. Bhakti Lata Panigrahi w/o late Durgesh Panigrahi had fallen in a great distress with two small children due to sudden and untimely demise of her husband. On the basis of the informations and request of the Branches of Mumbai, Federation headquarters had requested CGA verbally to meet the representative of the Association for discussion and settlement of the matter. But CGA did not agree to meet. Subsequently, a delegation of Delhi based National Executive members of AICAEA had met the Jt.CGA and sought the intervention of CGA office in resolving the problem. But Jt. CGA had shown his total indifference over the whole incident and even disagreed to appreciate the fact that, it was the wrong handling of the case of late Com. Panigrahi  by CGA office which had caused the death of Com. Panigrahi.

            However, when the Federation Headquarter had approached the Chief Controller of Accounts, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare; she had responded positively and met the representatives of the Federation. She had agreed to consider the suggestions of the representatives of the Association regarding offering of an employment to Mrs. Panigrahi on compassionate ground. As a followup of the discussion, CCA, Health and Family Welfare had taken all actions expeditiously and offered appointment to Com. Mrs. Panigrahi. Finally Mrs. Panigrahi has reported for duty as a regular employee in the PAO, Health, Mumbai on 5th October 2010.  

            Though Mrs. Panigrahi has got justice to some extent, but it is very unfortunate that, officers of CGA Office has not taken any lesson from the death of Com.Durgesh Panigrahi. Despite repeated requests, Jt. CGA did not agree to reconsider the posting of one of the acute asthma patient from Hyderabad to Campbell Bay in the Indian Ocean and another epileptic patient from Hyderabad to Nagpur as AAOs. Present Joint CGA being unclean, adamant and anti employee in nature, we should unite and fight.
