Views on Revamp of SOGE



Issue I:  Performance of Candidates:

Remedies: 1. Agrees with the first proposal

2. As regards the proposal on grant of two weeks duty leave on two occasions in the career, we propose an improvement viz.

      Duty leave of 15 working days may be grated to all candidates on four occasions in the career for preparing for SOGE

                   3. Agrees with the proposal

We also propose the following:

1. The candidates may be given an option to take the examination in a staggered manner as is done in ICAI/ICWA.

2. Books, codes and Manuals, model answers etc should be made available to each candidate by the office during the study.

3. All theory papers may be made objective type.

4. All practical papers may have double valuation.

5. Model answer after each examination may be made available to each candidate.

6. Examination schedule may be announced three months in advance.

7. The periodicity of SOGE may be changed to six monthly as it was in the earlier days. 


Issue 2: Number of Attempts

Solution proposed on limiting the number of chances is not acceptable.

The number of chances a candidate can avail has been evolved over a period of time. Hence the present system needs to be continued.

Further, this may be extended to DRSOs also.


Issue 3: Restraining non serious candidates

Generally, agrees with the solution proposal.

Medical emergency of not only self but of family and immediate family members may be considered. Death in the immediate family may also be taken into account.


Issue 4: Criterion for passing

Agrees with the proposal


Other decisions:


1. Transform SOGE from subjective mode of Examination to objective mode of examination:

Our response to Issue 1 contains our views on this.


2. Reduce the number of Papers


Constitution, Computer & Statistics may be inducted as curriculum for induction training and refresher courses and may be taken away from the syllabus.

Dear Comrade Arun Vidwans,


            Hope this letter will find you in best of health and high spirits.


            This is in continuation to my letter dated 13th Sept 2009 and 4th January 2010.


            I am to inform that 45th Conference of All India audit & accounts Association held in February 2010 at Jaipur decided to endorse the call of Joint Action Committee of Accounts & Audit Employees and Officers Organisations to go for one day Mass Casual leave in pursuance of the charter of Demands. (The Circular of JAC is attached, including the Charter of Demands).


            The National Executive Committee of this Association in its meeting on 12-13 March 2010 decided to request the National Audit Federation to join the agitation of Mass Casual Leave of 8th April 2010 so as to ensure total unity of audit & accounts employees and officers.


            I, therefore, request you to cause an enabling decision and join the massive protest by audit & accounts employees and officers on 8th April 2010 in pursuance of the demands such as implantation of arbitration award on Audit/Accounts Pay scales and grant of higher pay scale to audit/accounts cadres at par with CSS cadres.


            I hope (and request) that your Federation would definitely join the Mass Casual Leave on 8th April 2010.


            Hope to hear positively.


            With warm regards,

Yours fraternally,



(M. S. Raja)

Secretary General

Dear Comrade Vidwans,


            I am to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated 30/10/2009. Thanks.


            To begin with, let me put my letter dated 13th September 2009 in the right perspective – the request was to come under one flag to face, challenge and overcome the menaces out of the policy drives of the government which the CAG of India would have to per se follow and implement.


            This Association which relentlessly espouses the cause of employees has faced victimisations in the past, fought against it, sometimes could retrieve the situation, sometimes not. We still marches on.


            We are proud of our comrades who still face the onslaughts courageously, without surrendering. We have the proud legacy of such valiant comrades. The fight against victimisations would continue, it is part of a bigger struggle for democratic & civil rights for employees. My aforementioned letter did not seek any help in this regard.


            I don't think we should get into the issues such as relative strength of organisations etc. Having mentioned about it in your letter, it would not be proper on my part to ignore it altogether also.


            As per the verification of the membership done by CAG in 2006, 56 Audit Associations are affiliated to us against 48 Audit Associations affiliated to National Audit Federation. (This is after excluding 5 Audit Associations affiliated to us, erroneously left out, taking the total Audit Associations affiliated to us to 61). 


            The issue at hand is how to unitedly fight under one banner to safeguard the interests of the personnel working in IA&AD and the Central Government employees in general.


            My letter dated 13th September 2009 – delivered to you in person at Nagpur by Com KC Mathai, Assistant Secretary General of this Association - was quite clear in its approach – it was an invitation to return to the parent organisation.


            As stated in the aforementioned letter, the modalities of 'home-coming' can be discussed and decided, once in principle you agree to it.


            We are meeting in our Triennial Conference (45th Conference) at Jaipur in the 1st week of February 2010. It shall be highly appreciated if you would positively respond to our invitation - rather it is our request - to return to the parent organisation.


            Let not small irritants prevent us from taking momentous steps. There is nothing that can not be settled through meaningful and honest discussions.


            Wishing you a Happy New Year,


            With warm regards,


Yours fraternally,




(M.S. Raja)

Secretary General
