Dear Comrades,


            The National Executive Committee held at New Delhi on 1st October 2016 decided to observe 15th November 2016 as Demands Day in pursuance of the Charter of Demands adopted by the 47th Conference held at Nagpur from 8th August to 11th August 2016.

All the Units are requested to hold lunch hour meetings, adopt the resolution (given along with Circular) and submit it to the Head of Department by the Executive Committee in a deputation, with a covering letter requesting for onward transmission to CAG.

            As per the decision of the National Executive Committee, the 2nd phase of agitation would be one day Dharna by the Executive Committee members on 7th December 2016. The members may be kept informed of the decisions taken by the 47th Conference and the National Executive committee meeting on 1st October 2016.

            The recent decision of the CAG office to restructure the audit offices, reducing the staff strength at base level (i.e. at Auditor/SA level) without consulting the staff side is just an inkling of what is in store for us in future. We could see the drastic reduction In all the branches of audit. They are also working out the staff strength requirement in A&E wing also.  

            The members have to be made well aware of the developments and the dangers.

            Simultaneously, the members be mobilized for the future struggles on the issues related to 7th CPC including the March to Parliament on 15th December 2016.
