OUTCOME OF THE MEETINGS ON CADRE REVIEW HELD ON 17TH AUGUST 2018
You are aware, Controller General of Accounts vide OM No:- 32014/1/2014/MF.CGA/Gr.B/Cadre Review/366 dated 7th August, 2018 had invited different Associations formally and informally to hold meeting on 17th August 2018 regarding cadre review.
DISCUSSION WITH AICAEA & AICAEA CAT II
Responding to the invitation of the meeting a five+five member delegation of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category-II respectively attended the meeting with the official side at 11 AM on 17th August 18 which has lasted for about an hour. Thereafter the five member delegation of All India Association Pay and Accounts Officer (Civil) attended the meeting.
In the meeting between the delegation of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category-II and the official side of Controller General of Accounts Office, official side explained the method under which the official side had drawn up the conclusion of reducing the strength of 814 sanctioned posts of Group C. Responding to this, the staff side explained its position and stated logic for the necessity of expansion of the Group C cadre instead of reducing it. In forty years there was 62.5% growth of Group A cadre. There was growth in Group B cadre too. But there was no increase in the sanctioned strength of Group C cadres. Moreover, when less than 300 PAO/ZAOs in 1976 (38 Principal Accounts Offices, 265 PAOs and 46 IA wings in 1991) have risen steadily to 827 in 2018, there cannot be any valid ground that the Group C posts should be reduced. Moreover the FPUs of CBDT should be converted as full-fledged ZAOS. The official side appreciated the concern of staff side and agreed to revisit the entire proposal computed within a short spell of 2/3 weeks and also to do re-consultations with the PCCA/ CCA/ CA who are the heads of the departments. Further, the official side assured to have another round of discussion with the staff’s side for finalizing the issue of manpower computation and working out the issues of pay scales and career advancements for different cadres from the level of Sr. Acctt. to MTS.
DISCUSSION WITH AIAPAO (Civil)
In the meeting held between the official side and the representatives of AIAPAO (Civil) which commenced immediately after the above meeting, the staff side pointed out the consequence of reduction of posts of Group C cadres and also stated that, reduction in the strength in lower category of employees would create serious complication in the organization while the work load and number of PAO/RPAO/ZAO have been increased manifold. Further, it would not be possible to function the offices smoothly without having requisite staff of different categories. The meeting also discussed about the pay levels and percentages of posts to be granted to AO/Sr. AOs as a result of cadre review with minor changes with reference to proposals of other accounting organisations like Indian Audit and Accounts Department and the official side agreed with proposal of the staff side in Principle. It is also agreed to finalize the proposal within a month’s time. The de linking also discussed. As an interim measure the demand of the adhoc promotion in vacant promotional posts also submitted by association.
After the meetings with the authorities were over, available representatives of the Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees & workers Associations had met and reviewed the outcome of the meetings held with the authorities.
The meeting of the Co-ordination Committee had expressed its satisfaction on the positive approach of the Civil Accounts authorities. The meeting also offered it’s thanks to all members for extending their support and co-operation in the struggles for posting the demand towards settlement.
The meeting of the Co-ordination Committee also appealed upon all section of the members to unite and strengthen the Co-ordination Committee by strengthening their respective Associations.
