After a long, long gap the CAG administration has shown some inclination (if it can be termed so) to settling the long pending demands of the personnel of IA & AD. As the formal meeting with DAI – agenda items for which has already been submitted – is awaited, one of the 16 point charter of demands, ie item No 10 - Grant promotion to employees against the direct recruitment quota – has been settled. Orders regarding amending recruitment rules enabling diverting vacancies under direct recruitment quota for promotions (for this panel year) were issued in respect of Auditors & Accountants in the last days of December 2008 itself. The recruitment rule for Clerks has also been amended making the vacancies in the direct recruitment quota available for the promotion of eligible Gr D under examination/seniority promotion quota for this panel year. Also, the Recruitment Rule for Clerks has further been amended so that panel shall be closed every year. The Circular in this regard has been issued by CAG office on 28th January 2009.
Every Unit should take care that promotion do take place in each of these cadres against the vacancies in the direct recruitment quota. This relaxation would be of great help to those waiting for promotion for quite number of years.
Also, we should ensure that every beneficiary and general member is made aware that it is through constant and relentless organisational pressure we could make the CAG administration see reason and concede to our demand. We must remember that this is the first time since 1992-93 relaxation by diverting vacancies in the direct recruit quota towards promotional quota has been done.
This is a vindication of the struggles that we launched during the last few years on departmental issues. It reassures us that we will be able to achieve further by intensifying our agitational programmes.
Strengthen the Organisation, Increase the Mass Base
The need, so as to launch intensified agitations on departmental issues, is to strengthen the organisation. This is, in the first step, by bringing about democratisation in the organisational functioning along with transparency in the functioning of the Associations at all levels. This will help us to reach out to every member while also enabling us who are not inclined towards Association activities. The result will be that the participation in the programmes as well as decision making processes will be much more.
Secondly, we should continue our effort to win over those sections of employees who have left the mainstream of Audit & Accounts Employees and gone astray. The leadership in the field level should take lead and special effort to engage these employees and their leadership in a continuous dialogue, bringing them closer to us first by ensuring participation in the actions on departmental front as well as common front of CG employees. The circulars of All India Audit & Accounts Association should be circulated amongst them.
The Extended National Executive would discuss these issues and take appropriate decisions in its meeting on 24-25 February 2009 at Thiruvananthapuram.
