Dear Comrades,

                                    MASS C L – ADMINISTRATION STANDS EXPOSED                             

                             The massive expression of discontent by the employees and officers of IA&AD over the delay in arriving at negotiated settlement of on charter of demands has lead to a situation where-in the administration has, as never before or rather reminiscing the 1960s, is attempting to create panicky situation amongst the rank and file of the Associations.

                        Many methodologies are adopted for this. One is to 'leak out certain confidential informations' where as there is nothing confidential in all these. The other one is to issue 'show cause notice'. When in one is asked to explain why disciplinary action should not be taken against him or her under FR 17 (A)/(I) and CCS conduct Rules 1964, it doesnot make any difference whether you call it a memo or show cause notice – it is one and the same. But the phrase 'show cause' is used deliberately in an attempt to confuse the membership.

                             Every Unit may please ask extension of time to furnish a reply to the show cause notice by 15  days.

                        Draft reply attached to this circular may be given on completion of the extended period.

                                                          LETTER TO CAG                                           

                        We have written a letter to CAG explaining the position leading to the decision to go for a Mass Casual Leave, which is quite a constitutional means to express the discontent of the employees and officers. Letter is published in the April issue of Auditlekha Samanvay.

                        The insistence of the administration that there could be discussion only when the programme of Mass CL is withdrawn is responsible for the employees and officers going on action.                         

                        There has been no formal meeting with Dy CAG since 2007, though we submit agenda items for discussion for a bilateral meeting with every DAI. Many of the issues are waiting for decision for years.

                        The question of victimisation is kept unresolved, while provocations are repeatedly made in the offices like O/o PAG (A&E) AP, Hyderabad. The restrictions on the activities of the Associations are attempted in many offices, especially in the O/o PAG (A&E), AP, Hyderabad.

                        Most funniest has been the reply on CAG's personal intervention with FM on the issue of implementation of arbitration award and grant of higher pay scales – we are asked: why the hurry, there are three more years for the present CAG to retire!

                        The Cabinet Secretary meets the staff side and discusses when strike notice is given, but CAG administration takes it insulting to discuss "under threat". What is expected of the administration of CAG is the spirit of the Constitution of India, ie SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY.

                        We had no option but to express our discontent, overcoming the various terror tactics applied by administration, the employees and officers remained absent on 8th April 2010 and majority of the offices remained virtually deserted on that day.

                        We are not for confrontation. The fact that after there was no serious action on Departmental Front since the half day walk out on 21st June 2007 testifies it. But the patience wears out when things do not move on the right track and right time despite repeated pleas.

                        We are sure the rank and file of the Associations would give befitting reply to the terror tactics of the administration just as they did on 8th April 2010.

                        With greetings,                     

Yours fraternally

Draft reply

To                                                                                                                   

The PAG/DGA /AG/Director/DD

………………..

 

Sir,

                                                   Kindly refer to Memo /show cause vide  No…………………………………..Date…………..

               In this regard, I may submit that there is no provision in the Conduct Rules under which employees can not take Mass Casual Leave. To treat Mass Casual Leave as strike is an executive order which has no statutory validity.               

   To go on a casual leave in order to register a protest comes under exercise of Fundamental Right of freedom of expression and therefore treat it as a virtual strike is an infringement of the above fundamental right of freedom of expression. As a matter of fact authorities should take note of the discontent expressed by the employees by constitutional means of going on Casual Leave collectively and take positive measures to settle the grievances. Your proposal to proceed against me is not only an unconstitutional and illegal action but it betrays a total negative and confrontist attitude towards the action taken by the Staff Associations.

                           I therefore request you to refrain from any action that you have proposed in the show cause notice/memo. I further request that the casual leave applied may please be sanctioned.     

   Thanking you in anticipation

Yours faithfully

Dear Comrades,

OBSERVE ASSOCIATION DAY ON 15TH APRIL

 

87 years back on 15th April 1923 a few brave and honest men gathered at Nagpur and founded the All India Audit & Accounts Association.

 

Looking back, we have great things to be proud of – of our selfless leadership of yesteryears, of the sacrifices of hundreds of leaders and activists, so on and so forth.

 

We have seen many ups and downs. We did come out of the difficult periods maintaining unity and without wavering on the path of struggle.

 

It is time to remember those who walked ahead of us, those who never demanded a pay back, but those who gave everything for the movement. Every office has got atleast two or three of them.

 

It is time to rekindle the spirit of unity and struggle by systematic and democratic functioning.

 

It is the time to carry the legacy of struggle ahead, with a band of dedicated leadership and cadres at every station and office.

 

Let us re-dedicate ourselves to the task of organisation building and unity on this great day.

 

Let us pledge to enroll every employee and officer as a member, raise the level of every member to that of an activist and bring up all the activists as leaders and to raise the vision and understanding of leaders to an enviable level.

 

All the units may observe the Association Day by flag hoisting and meetings with total involvement of membership.

 

Report on the observance of the Association Day may please be sent (with photographs).

 

With regards

Yours fraternally

Dear Comrades,

 

HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS!

MASSIVE RESENTMENT RECORDED

ON NON-SETTLEMENT OF BURNING ISSUES

 

            The Central Head Quarter of All India Audit & Accounts Association and Apex JAC greet and congratulate every audit and accounts employee and officer for the magnificent show of dissent by joining the call for Mass Casual Leave.

            The Audit & Accounts employees and officers rose like one person to record its disapproval of non settlement of burning issues faced by them through negotiation with the Association by massively abstaining from work on 8th April 2010.

            Breaking from the past every body - from Gr D to SAO - joined the mass abstention demanding negotiated settlement of charter of demands and also standing upto the mandarins in the North Block who deny the status and pay scale to audit and accounts employees and officers at par with those in CSS.

            This massive protest also conveyed to the CAG's administration that the draconian laws and perverted officers' actions will be questioned and the victimisations of the Association leaders, be it in Kerala, Rajkot, Gwalior, Kolkata or elsewhere will not be tolerated.

            This time we saw a new method of administration bending backward and sanctioning leave liberally. That is what we want, sanction leave for all those who applied – whether Casual leave, Earned leave or medical leave. The offices through out India wore a deserted look today ie, 8th April 2010.

 

            The employees and officers abstained –either by applying CL on 8th April or by availing leave for more than one day (when we give call for one day work stoppage, the administration wants more days' work stoppage!) in the following stations and offices.

 

            Kohima, Nagaland – Near total in Accounts Category II and III

               Shillong, Meghalaya – Near total in Accounts Cat II and III

            Guwahati, Assam – Near total in Accounts Cat II and III

            Kolkata, WB - Nobody was present in the offices of PAG (Audit), PDA (C), PAG (A&E)

Total in ERly Audit, P&T Audit, MAB II, Defence Audit, MAB II

            Bhubaneswar, Orissa – Total in Accounts Cat II & III

            Puri, Orissa – Total in Accounts Cat II & III

            Shimla, HP – Total in Accounts Cat III

            Chandigarh, Punjab – More than 70% in Accounts Cat II & III

            Jaipur, Rajasthan – Total in Audit Cat II & III

                                         Near total in Accounts Cat II & III

            Gwalior, MP – 30% in Accounts Cat III

            Bhopal, MP – Total in Audit Cat II & III

            Nagpur – 70% in Accounts Cat II and 20% in Accounts Cat III

            Nagpur - Total in P&T Audit, Cat II & III

Lucknow – Near total in P&T Audit Cat III despite terror (Those who were called and threatened to sign withdrew the signature, giving in writing that they are on CL)

            Ahmedabad, Gujarat – handful only abstained.

            Mumbai, Maharashtra – Nearly 70 % in Accounts Cat II & III, AG (Commercial Audit)

                                                Total in DGA Central, Audit Cat III

                                                Nearly 25% in PAG (Audit) Cat III

                                                Near total in MAB I & II

            Hyderabad, AP - 63% in Accounts Cat III, despite reign of terror let lose by PAG

                                      25% on CL, another 25% abstained, SC Rly Audit Cat II & III

            Bangalore, Karnataka – Total abstention in A&E Office

            Chennai, Tamil Nadu – Nearly 33 % on CL, another 33 % abstained in A&E Office

                                                25% on CL in Audit Office

            Kerala – Lunch hour demonstration only

 

THIS IS A LESSON, THIS IS A BEGINNING

            The administration wanted this Association to withdraw the Mass Casual Leave programme of 8th April 2010 but without any commitment on settlement of issues.

            It was told in clear terms to administration that withdrawal or deferment will be considered if the issues of victimisation is addressed to immediately and CAG make a personal intervention on the issues of implementation of arbitration award and pay scales while a road map is agreed to on negotiated settlement on other items in the charter of demands.

            The administration tried to create terror in certain pockets. Despite all these the employees and officers have stood firm.

            The CHQ salute one and all.

 

TERROR TACTICS FAIL IN AP

            The CHQ salute the valiant comrades of Accounts Cat III Association, Hyderabad, AP for the commendable success in overcoming the terror created by the PAG (A&E).

 

SAS EXAM SCHEME

            CAG administration has issued orders on new pattern and syllabus for SAS examination from the forthcoming examination in November 2010 onwards.

            We find that some of the proposals given by this Association have been accepted, especially on study leave and excluding paper on statistics. Also, flexibility on choosing the papers – though exactly not the way we demanded – has been considered.

            Copy of the order is enclosed.

 

            With regards

Yours fraternally
