ATTACK ON THE
CIVIL ACCOUNTS EMPLOYEES
we have given a call for Protest Demonstration during lunch hour on 12.11.2014 against the apathetic attitude of authorities towards our demands. Pr. CCA, CBEC has declared it against the conduct Rules. This is a direct interference in to the normal trade union activities of our Association. Peaceful demonstration during lunch hour is not violative of any conduct Rules. The Rule 7(ii) of the conduct Rules only prohibits such demonstration as are - “resort to or in any way abet any form of strike or coercion or physical duress in connection with any matter pertaining to his service or the service of any other Government servant”.
We have therefore, to take this move of the administration as an effort to curb our normal peaceful trade union activities. We have asked the CGA to direct the above authority to withdraw the aforementioned orders and to refrain from interfering into our functioning. In case the authorities do not mend their ways, we may have to agitate more intensively in order to protect our normal peaceful trade union activities.
We have issued following letter to the Controller General of Accounts

Your Kind attention is invited to the order No. APAR Cell/1(10)3/Association/2014-15/1022 dated 11-11-2014 issued by the Pr.CCA, CBEC declaring our peaceful demonstration on 12-11-2014 violative of Conduct Rules and directing staff not to participate in the demonstration. They also threatened the staff with disciplinary action, if they participate in it.
There is no rule in CCS Conduct Rules, 1965 prohibiting any peaceful demonstration by the employees.
Therefore, it is apparent that the above orders were issued by the Pr. CCA, CBEC only with a view to curb our normal peaceful Association activity which is not acceptable to the Association.
I therefore, request you to direct the above authority to withdraw the afore said orders and refrain from illegally interfering with our normal functioning.
