Dear Comrades,

The Qualification Pay for Auditors/Accounts has not been revised even
after passage of more than two years on implementation of SCPC report.
We had vide our letter dated AIA/B-1/31/2010 had requested CAG of
India to revise the qualification pay at par with the four advance
increments that was in vogue upto 3rd CPC, in tune with the upholding
of the CAT Chennai judgement on granting of four advance increments to
Auditors by the HC of Madras.

The Supreme Court of India in its judgement of 1st September 2010
rejected the appeal of the government of India against the Madras HC
judgement. The judgement of CAT as well as HC Madras is a judgement
with universal applicability and hence it has to be implemented in
respect of all in the IA&AD. But what has been done by the Department
is to implement it in respect of those who have gone to the CAT.

We have been demanding for quite long the re-introduction of the
scheme of four advance increments on passing of departmental
confirmatory examination for Auditors/Accountants. We re-iterated our
demand for re-introduction of the scheme of four advance increments in
place of qualification pay (our letter AIA/B-1/72/2010 dt 29th
November 2010) in the light of the Supreme Court upholding the
judgements of CAT & High Court, Madras.

All the units may therefore observe 22nd December 2010 as 'Replace
Qualification Pay with Four Advance Increments (on passing of
departmental examination) Day' by holding lunch hour demonstration and
adopting the enclosed resolution and submitting the same to CAG of
India through proper channel.

Further, we may go for signature campaign amongst the mass of
employees demanding implementation of Madras HC judgement on four
advance increments on passing of departmental confirmatory examination
universally in IA&AD. Signature Campaign Week may be observed from 3rd
January to 7th January 2011. Material for signature campaign would be
circulated separately.

With regards
Yours fraternally

(M.S.Raja)
Secretary General


RESOLUTION

This mass meeting of members of …………….Association, ……………….held on
22nd Decemebr 2010 take note that the Supreme Court of India rejected
the appeal by the government of India on the judgement of the High
Court of Madras in Writ Petition 13258/2003. The High Court of Madras
had upheld the order passed by the CAT Madras Bench in OA 229/2002.

These judgements of CAT as well as HC of Madras upheld t that the
Auditors of IA&AD are entitled for four advance increments as granted
to Accounts Assistants of Railway Accounts subsequent to a judgement
of Supreme Court.

Since the implementation of 3rd CPC recommendations in 1973, the
audit and accounts employees have been demanding the restoration of
the scheme of four advance increments to auditors & accountants on
passing of departmental confirmatory examination.

The recent decision of the Supreme Court upholding the decision given
by the HC of Madras upholds the merit of our demand.

This meeting therefore demand that the qualification pay that has not
been revised after the SCPC report implementation may be revised and
replaced with the scheme of four advance increments with effect from
1st January 2006.

This meeting of members of ………………….Association, …………..urges upon the
Comptroller & Auditor General of India to urgently intervene and grant
four advance increments to all auditors and accountants on passing of
departmental confirmatory examination with effect from 1.1.2006.

This meeting further request that the decision given by the HC of
Madras upheld by Supreme Court of India may be made applicable to all
eligible personnel in IA&AD.

Resolve to submit a copy of this resolution to Hon'ble CAG of India
through proper channel.

Further resolve to send a copy of this resolution to Secretary
General, All India Audit & Accounts Association, CSV Warrier Bhawan,
15/1089-90, Vasundhara, Dt. Ghaziabad (U.P.), PIN -201012.
