Subject: - Non-merger of PAO, ISP and PAO, CNP, Nashik – request regarding.
I would like to bring it to your kind information that, there are 2 (two) PAO Offices functioning at Nashik under CCA, Ministry of Finance viz. PAO, CNP and PAO, ISP at Nashik Road. As per the existing scenario, sanctioned strength of both the offices is 1 PAO/Sr. AO, 2 AAOs, 6 Accts/Sr. Acctts and 1 MTS respectively. Presently, working strength of both the offices is 1 PAO, 1 AAO, 2 Acctts/Sr. Acctts only.
As the Cadre Review of Civil Accounts Organization is under process, it is understood that the proposal is under consideration at CCA, Ministry of Finance for merger of both the PAOs i.e. ISP and CNP, Nashik into one PAO with sanctioned strength of 1 PAO/Sr. AO, 1 AAO, 3 Acctts/Sr. Acctts and one MTS. Proposal is at final stage and is going to be recommended by O/o CCA, Ministry of Finance to the Internal Cadre Review Committee of your office.
Though, it is agreed that, after corporatization of mints and Presses, work load has drastically reduced but quantum of Pension cases involved in e-revision was huge. 5775 cases in PAO, CNP and 6969 cases in PAO, ISP and revision of these cases was herculian task which is still under process in PAO, ISP. In addition, there are substantial numbers of family pension cases pertaining to widowed/divorced/unmarried daughters are in receipt at PAO offices for authorization. All these pension files are being managed by PAOs of ISP and CNP, Nashik separately. Both the departments i.e. ISP and CNP are separate entity and working independently with separate HODs.
As the proposal is under consideration for merging of both the PAO i.e. ISP and CNP in to one, this move will not only reduce the sanctioned strength in each cadre but it will be very difficult to manage such huge records of both the offices at one place consequent on merger of the offices.
We therefore, request you to kindly direct the Internal Cadre Review Committee of your office to examine the contents of this letter and take a decision in consultation with the Chief Controller of Accounts, Ministry of Finance keeping in consideration the interest of organization and its employees.
