Dear Comrades,
CONVENTION CALLS FOR REORGANISING LOCAL JACS
            The National Convention of Accounts & Audit Employees and Officers held at Hyderabad on 10th January 2016 was attended by nearly 200 delegates representing All India Audit & Accounts Association, All India Audit & Accounts Officers Association, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category II, All India Postal Accounts Employees Association, All India Pay & Accounts Officers Association (Civil), All India P&T Accounts & Finance Officers Association and ,  All India Federation of Divisional Accounts Officers and Divisional Accountants Associations.

            The Convention was inaugurated by Com Venugopal, former General Secretary, All India Insurance Employees Association.
            In all 20 speakers participated in the discussion on the declaration presented by Com V Bhattacharjee, Convenor.
            The Convention called upon the constituent organisations and its field formations to ensure formation of JAC in all stations so as to carry out the calls of the Apex JAC effectively and purposefully.
            The Convention called upon all the audit and accounts employees and officers to observe day long dharna at a centralised place in every station, under the banner of JAC, on 11th February 2016. This will be followed by Signature campaign on the charter of demands. The
Convention also decided to organise Dharna at New Delhi in June-July 2016.
            Copy of the declaration adopted by the Convention and the JAC circular are attached.

AMENDMENT TO RECRUITEMENT RULES
            The Recruitment Rules for Auditor/Accountant, Senior Auditor/Accountant were expected to be notified in the month of February. But the new condition introduced by the DOPT that the draft notification has to be first placed in the public domain for comments before it being processed has delayed it.
            It means that after the statutory one month, the whole process for approval by DOPT and Law Ministry will have to be repeated, causing delay.
            This also would result delay in the promotion of DEO as Auditor/Accountant till the revised recruitment rule for Auditor/Accountant is notified in the Gazette. It may take another 6 -8 months for the whole process to be over.
            In the mean time, CAG administration has issued circular on training and promotion of DEO as Console operator – DEO Gr II with GP 2800 – for those who have put 5 years of service.
            This has caused doubts in the minds of DEOs that they will not have chance to become Auditor/Accountant.
            This issue was raised with administration – especially in the background of the RR for Auditor/Accountant getting delayed. We have requested that those who get promoted as Console Operator may also be given opportunity to become Auditor/Accountant as and when the revised Recruitment Rules for Auditor/Accountant are notified, maintaining their original seniority in DEO cadre. This has been positively responded by the administration. We will have to be vigilant to ensure that the same is implemented.

NATIONAL CONVENTION ON THE DEMANDS OF GRANT OF APPROPRIATE PAY SCALES TO EMPLOYEES AND OFFICERS OF ACCOUNTS AND AUDIT
 Dated 10th January 2016

DECLARATION

The representatives of  All India Audit & Accounts Association, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, All India Postal Accounts Employees Association,  All India Audit and Accounts Officers Association , All India Association of Pay & Accounts Officers (Civil), All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, Category-II, All India Federation of Divisional Accounts Officers and Divisional Accountants Associations met in the  National Convention on 10th January 2016, Conference Hall, 4th Floor, Nirman Bhawan, CPWD, Koti, Hyderabad.
The Convention, in conformity with the observations given by the National Joint Council of Action of the Central Government Employees, totally rejects the anti-employee recommendations of the 7th CPC. The mutilation of Dr. Aykroyd formula in computation of minimum wages based on the 12-monthly average (ending on 1.7.2015) prices of essential commodities supplied by Labour Bureau at Shimla was a total jugglery on the part of 7thCPC. 
The convention considers that, reduction in the wages of women employee who avail CCL, forcing the employees to go on voluntary retirement on completion of 20 years of service in the name of ‘inefficiency’, earmarking ‘very good’ for MACP, withdrawal of all types of short term advances like festival/cycle/ LTC etc, refusal to recommend for scrapping of new Pension scheme, refusal to propose for dispensing with the outsourcing/casualisation/ contractorisation by regularizing the  employees engaged through such methods for regular government functions  are the most retrograde and  the anti-employee recommendations of the 7CPC.
The meeting noted that on the issue of formation of Apex Level Grievance redressal mechanism to the Group B Gazetted Officers and Promotee Group A Officers, even after 67 years of independence, settlement has not taken place mainly because of intransigent and adamant stand of the Ministry of Finance, Government of India.  The meeting noted that on all other demands also there is a dilly dallying attitude on the part of authorities resulting in non-settlement.
The Convention congratulates the Central Government employees for observing 27th November 2015 as BLACK DAY by wearing black badges and holding (lunch hour) demonstration at the work place and organizing lunch hour demonstration on 30th December 2015 responding to the call of NJCA, which was duly endorsed by the Confederation.
The Convention endorses the 26 Point Charter of Demands on issues related to the recommendations of the 7th CPC submitted to the Cabinet Secretary on 10th December 2015 by the Staff Side, National Council, JCM and on behalf of the NJCA and also by the CCGGOO to the Government to discuss and settle the demands immediately.
The Convention also endorses the decisions taken by NJCA on organizational actions including the decision of massive Dharna on 19th, 20th and 21st January 2016 and Indefinite Strike in the 1st Week of March 2016 with an appeal to the entirety of the Accounts and Audit Employees and Officers of the country  to  prepare  and  participate  in  all  preparatory programmes and the Strike action under the
guidance of the local Co-ordination Committees and JCAs.
The Convention takes the opportunity to congratulate all those employees and officers of Indian Audit and Accounts Department and other organised Accounts Cadre who responded the call of Apex JAC i.e. observance of demands day on 15th December 2015 and submission of the demands of the Accounts and Audit Employees and Officers in the form of Resolution to local Head of Offices for onward transmission to higher authorities.
The Convention totally agrees with the following proposals for pay structure for Audit & Accounts Cadres submitted by the apex level JAC to secretary, Department of Expenditure ON 11TH December 2015 seeking mitigation of the injustice done to the accounts and audit cadres by the 7th CPC.
1.   Accounts/Audit Assistant:

Dear Comrades,

NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE CALLS UPON TO ORGANISE
‘COMRADE SK VYAS MEMORIAL LECTURE’
 ON 13 FEBRUARY – EVERY YEAR

            It is going to be one year on 13th February – we are yet to get adjusted to the reality that Com SK Vyas is not amidst us.

            The role of Com Vyas in the audit movement, in the movement of central government employees shall ever be remembered. No history of either audit movement and for that matter of central government employees’ movement can be written without SK Vyas. His role, involvement, contributions and above all the sacrifices are beyond words, unparalleled.

            There will not be a replacement for Com SK Vyas – and there cannot be also. He is a glittering star that will guide us in the days to come.

            The National Executive Committee felt that the remembrance of Vyasji cannot and should not be quite ritualistic. Vyasji was a voracious reader, he read anything that came on his way. From trash to classics he read. Vyasji used to advise not to ignore anything as trash or something that is too hard to understand. You have something to learn from everything and anything will be understood when you want to, that is what Vyasji used to tell us.

            Naturally, the best tribute to Vyasji would be by gaining some knowledge, some more information on a subject, using it for growth of the movement and advancement of the society.

            The National Executive Committee therefore calls upon all the Units to organise, here onwards, COMRADE SK VYAS MEMORIAL LECTURE on 12th February in every station, this year and on 13th February every year – on a given subject. The speaker should be somebody who can present the subject in its entirety. A leading, learned figure in the station may be chosen as a speaker.


The subject for this year is:

Demand for Minimum wage and Living Wage – in the context of economic liberalisation.

The National Executive Committee further decided to bring out a souvenir in memory of Com SK Vyas – every unit is requested to contribute their mite towards souvenir. The idea is to release the souvenir in a function on 15th April – Association Day at New Delhi. The details shall be communicated later, separately to each unit.

All the Units are requested to organise “Com SK Vyas Memorial Lecture” with maximum participation and a detailed report may be sent to HQr.

It shall be highly appreciated if every unit e-mail the transcript of the lecture to HQr which can be printed in the souvenir which shall be useful to all.

            With greetings,

Yours fraternally
