Members & Spl. Invitees – NE &
Members of Women’s Committee

Dear Comrades,
On 27th September 2018, this Association had a courtesy meeting with Shri RS Mathrani, DAI (HR & LB). Immediately thereafter, charges of DAsI and ADAsI were reshuffled by CAG and HR& LB charge was allotted to Shri AWK Langsteih, ADAI.

We had a courtesy meeting with Shri AWK Langsteih, ADAI (HR & LB)  on 19th November 2018. The Association was represented by, in addition to the Secretary General, Comrades Tapas Bose, President, V Sreekumar & Anilkumar, Additional Secretaries General and G Rajagopal, Assistant Secretary General. Shri KB Jamal, Pr. Director, Staff and RK Choudhary, SAO/JCM were also present during the meeting.

The following issues were discussed:
1.      Cadre Restructuring - we raised our concern over the delay and expressed our apprehension that the enthusiasm that was seen at the official end is not visible as of now.

We were informed that the draft report is getting finalised and is expected to be submitted by end of December 2018.

2.      Denial of NFU to AAOs and Supervisors - all the facts were presented including functional responsibilities. The fact that Adhoc AAO is designated as Gazetted was also brought to the notice of ADAI.

ADAI assured to have a fresh look on the issue.

3.      Functional Facilities to Associations at field level -

* Delay in recognition of Civil Audit Association, Allahabad – It was assured to effect check off system without any further delay.
** Denial of functional facility to Commercial Audit Cat 3 Association, MAB 1 & 2 Mumbai – It was assured to give time for the Association to enroll membership from MAB 2 (as the HQr office itself reversed its decision on Constitutional amendment)
*** Transfer of President of Defence Audit Association, Kolkata – It was informed that CAG’s standing order in this regard has been conveyed to DGA (Defence). As it has not been enforced, ADAI assured to intervene.
**** Non transmission of Resolution by AG/DG/PDA: We brought to the notice of ADAI that resolutions adopted by the field level Units are not forwarded by the field offices raising silly objections.
                  ADAI assured to look into the matter.

4.      Shifting of AP office to Vijayawada: We presented the hardship and the loss that the personnel of undivided AP office would be faced with when posted to Vijayawada (on deputation). The fact that nearly 300 personnel – from MTS to AAO – would be forced to maintain two establishments was also presented. Loss on account of HRA, Transport Allowance and deprivation of CGHS facilities were also taken up. We requested for rescheduling of shifting of office to 2022.
      ADAI stated that all concerned were notified about shifting of office from Hyderabad to Vijayawada in December 2017 itself. He further stated that the Accounts sections are already functioning from Vijayawada. He expressed the fear that if we don’t shift the office - i.e. the entitlement functions - in April 2019, the State Government may get a ruse to take over the functions in which case we will be the total loser.
      (After meeting ADAI, President and Secretary General of Assistant Accounts Officers Association and Com G Rajagopal, General Secretary, Accounts Category III Association met Pr Director, Staff along with Secretary General and discussed the issues involved in detail. PD, Staff informed that HQr office took up the issue of grant of HRA and TA at Hyderabad rate to those deputationists who will be posted to Vijayawada with Deptt. Of Expr which did not agree with the proposal).

5.      Recruitment in the Canteen and Regularisation of contract labour employed with Canteens
      ADAI agreed to examine the issue.
      While discussing this issue, we also raised the question of regularisation of personnel working on contract basis in different cadres in the Mizoram. ADAI did not comment on this.

                   With greetings,
Yours fraternally

M. S. Raja
Secretary General
