MORE DECISIONS OF FEDERAL EXECUTIVE MEETING HELD AT DELHI ON 11TH MAY 2012
In the Meeting the introduction of “e-payment –Gateway” system was discussed. The salient features of the system were discussed in length.
It has been noted that while the CGA circulated the pilot study during December/2011, there was no such proposal for extending the “e-payment gateway” to the CDDOs of the departmental DDOs. However, as per the recent amendment made by the CGA in the Receipts and Payments Rules, the electronic gateway was opened to the departmental DDOs also. So there is a possibility that in future, the CDDOs may be allowed to upload voucher classification details and “e lekha” upload directly by them to the CGA, on daily basis which may come to the knowledge of the concerned PAOs, only during compilation of monthly accounts. Thereby, it is feared that in future, the importance of the accounting functions of the PAO would get marginalized by the department.
Apart from the above, it has been noted that the posts of Cashier, Cheque Writer as well as the work of Expenditure Scroll Posting at PAO Level would be reduced, thereby; such posts would be abolished in future.
After the discussion, it was finally decided upon that every branch would discuss about the system in details and present their view in paper in the ensuring CWC Meeting to be held in Pune, so that a consensus can be arrived at that meeting. Till then opposition to e-payment shall continue.
Cadre restructuring is due for a long time. In our Civil Accounts Set up, Cadre Restructuring has not been done for a pretty long time. Whereas, in Revenue Departments particularly in CBEC/DBDT this issue has been taken care of and in CBDT it is already approved by the Ministry of Finance. In CBEC it is on the move.
So it is presumed that in other ministries also the same would be the case.
So it is high time that we demand for the Cadre Restructuring so that some of our demands would be filled up.
In this connection, it is noted as per the recommendations of the VI CPC, the cadre
controlling authorities may undertake “Restructuring” in line with their grant of grade pays according to posts/scales. It was emphasized in the CPC Report to finish the task of restructuring before the date
But so far our CGA has not taken any positive step in this regard. The matter has not
even been initiated at the discussion level with the representatives of the Associations.
So it was decided unanimously in the meeting that all the Branches after discussion at their level, shall submit written proposal so that a uniform decision may be taken at the Federal Executive Meeting at Pune.
