In the bilateral meeting on 20th April 2009 with Principal Director, Staff, the following issues were also discussed – rather certain clarifications and some amendments/improvements to the scheme of adhoc SO were sought - to in addition to the agenda items as given in the Circular 10.
Two of such issues were related to transfer of SOGE Civil Audit passed candidates from A&E office to Civil Audit offices.
Some units have reported that there are some candidates in A&E offices who opted for SOGE Civil Audit only because there was no chance for any career advancement in A&E offices. Some of them have passed the papers of SOGE Accounts. Under the scheme given vide circular dated 25th March 2009 by CAG, these personnel would not be considered for adhoc promotion because they are candidates for SOGE Civil Audit. It was also pointed out that some candidates, as in the office of AG (A&E), AP, Hyderabad, had represented way back in 2007 for being considered/declared as SOGE Accounts passed and their representation is still pending.
We requested that relaxation to this clause may be given and a fresh option may be given to all such personnel to remain in A&E office itself, ie to withdraw from SOGE Civil Audit and considered as SOGE Accounts passed.
It was stated by Pr Director Staff that at this stage no such request could be considered. On being further requested it was stated that any request for relaxation can be considered after the implementation of the scheme.
We also took up the issue of taking SOGE Civil Audit passed candidates from A&E offices in Audit offices where vacancies in the SO/AAO cadre are limited or marginal.
It was clarified that (P)AG (Audit) has to work out how many posts will be required to accommodate all such SOGE civil audit passed personnel and have to seek sanction for additional posts. It was further clarified that all such candidates from A&E offices would be taken on deputation against additional posts, without affecting the promotional prospects of future candidates in Civil Audit offices.
Another issue we raised was on the regularisation of daily wage employees. We were informed by Pr Director, Staff some scheme is being worked out and it is expected that we can expect some action in this regard soon.
