Members of Women’s Committee

Dear Comrades,

Implementation of NE Decisions

Mobilisation on NPS
            The NE meeting held at Bhubaneswar decided to hold a convention in each station. As the background paper could not be sent on time, the Convention may be held on 15th February 2018. The work paper (background paper) would be made available in the first week of Februray.

TU Camp
            The TU camp at Jaipur is being held on 29-30 January 2018.
            The Units that have been mentioned in the Circular 26/2017 are requested to intimate the date for TU camp. In the absence of any communication/confirmation, HQr would decide the date and communicate.

On cadre Restructuring
            The Committee set up to finalise the draft report will meet on 17th February 2018 at Bengaluru. The same would be circulated to the Units thereafter for their comments and inputs. The NE would meet at Hyderabad on 27-28 March 2018 to take a final call.

            In the meanwhile, we had written to the CAG for forming a committee on restructuring of cadres in IA&AD with representation to staff side. Copy of the letter is enclosed.

            The CAG’s administration, in turn, has asked us to submit our proposals to a Committee on Cadre Restructuring. It is not clear what the composition of the Committee is and who heads it. The letter is silent on staff side representation also.
We cannot accept an (anonymous) committee of officers with no staff representation. We don’t want a committee like pay commission which will hear us but will not do anything and even if they do, it won’t be in our interest. It is the career prospects of Gr C & B personnel at stake and we cannot compromise on it, especially because we have to wait 33 years for a cadre restructuring.

            DOPT has clearly stated that the Committee on cadre restructuring should have staff side representatives. In all other Departments, it is implemented in its true spirit. IA&AD cannot be allowed to be an exception.

Hold Lunch hour meeting and adopt Resolution
            Every Unit may adopt a resolution demanding a Committee on cadre restructuring with representation to the Staff Side by holding lunch hour meeting on 8th February 2018. (Draft Resolution is given elsewhere) submitting to respective HOD for onward transmission to CAG.

With greetings,

Yours fraternally

M. S. Raja
Secretary General

Draft Resolution

This meeting of the general members of …………………………………………Association, O/o……………………………………. held on today, 8th February 2018 considers the decision of the CAG to form a committee on restructuring of cadres in IA&AD as a welcome step.

This Association is of the considered view that the Committee’s function should be transparent, necessitating representation to the Staff side in the Committee set up for restructuring of cadres in IA&AD. This meeting would like to remind the CAG administration that DOPT’s standing instructions on the Committee on restructuring of cadres insists representation to the Staff Side.

This meeting of general members of this Association, therefore, urges upon the Comptroller & Auditor General of India to reconstitute the Committee on restructuring of cadres in IA&AD with representation to recognised Federations in IA&AD making the committee’s constitution known to all concerned.

Resolved to submit a copy of this resolution to CAG of India through proper channel.

Further resolve to forward a copy of this resolution to Secretary General, All India Audit & Accounts Association, CSV Warrier Bhawan, 15/1089-90, Vasundhara, District Ghaziabad, UP- 201012 for information.
