NATIONAL CONVENTION ON MEMORANDUM TO VII CPC

19th July 2014 at Azad Bhawan, ITO, New Delhi

DECLARATION

The representatives of  All India Audit & Accounts Association, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, All India Postal Accounts Employees Association, All India Defence Accounts Employees Association, Kolkata, All India Accounts & Audit 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 19th July 2014 at Azad Bhawan at New Delhi.

The Convention endorses the Memorandum submitted by the Staff Side, National Council, JCM as also the memorandum submitted by the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers, New Delhi with regard to common cadres such as MTS etc.

The Convention considering the status, duties and functions of IA&AD and organised Accounts Organisations such as Civil Accounts, Postal Accounts, Defence Accounts and Railway Accounts under Government of India unanimously resolve to raise the demand for a pay structure befitting its stature and duties to various Audit and Accounts Cadres with the VII CPC. 

The Convention, therefore, decide to submit our proposals for pay structure for Audit & Accounts Cadres and hope that the VII CPC will consider our submissions on total parity with CSS cadres on merit, duties and responsibilities and the accepted principles and the recommendations of the 4th and 6th CPC.

The Convention further decides that for the following grounds different cadres in IA&AD and Organised Accounts be given a better treatment by 7th CPC.

The Accounting and Auditing Departments are not administrative offices and in these departments, all items of work are of technical nature. Like administrative offices there is no method of receiving Dak/letters and dispatch of those in the Accounts Organization or in any other departments of Accounts and Audit.  The LDCs in the Accounts and Audit Departments are discharging technical responsibilities and performing the duties of Accounts Assistants. Therefore, the cadre LDC in the Audit and Accounting formations should be upgraded as Accounts/Audit Assistants.
The Auditor/Accountant – more than 67 % Graduates - have to pass a departmental Confirmatory examination on completion of 1 year failing which he/she is liable to be demoted and appointed as fresh LDC. They are promoted as SA on completion of 3 years as Auditor/Accountant and after passing a Departmental Confirmatory examination. This definitely put the SA above the Assistant in CSS. Hence the convention proposes for same pay for SA Gr I and Assistants of CSS and higher pay for SA Gr II.

The Assistant Audit/Accounts Officer in IA&AD & Organised Accounts has an element of direct recruitment where as the Section Officer of CSS is a promotee from Assistant – 50% through seniority and 50% through LDCE. The Auditor/Accountant or SA has to negotiate one of the toughest departmental examinations (SAS Examination) to become AAO. The AAO in IA &A D & Organised Accounts is thus above the SO of the CSS while it is treated as inferior. Minimum what is expected is grant of same pay with SO of CCS at maximum while a higher pay at entry level.

This Convention therefore decides to demand the following pay restructure for Audit & Accounts cadres with the VII CPC.

1
LDC(Redesignated  as Audit/Accounts Assistant)
GP 1900, PB1
GP 2400  PB1
41000

The Convention further resolves to reorganise and reactivate the local committees of the Joint Action Committee at every station through the joint visits of the leaders of the Apex JAC and sustained agitational programmes. The Convention call upon every field formations of the constituent organisations to ensure total participation of its membership in all the agitational programmes call for which shall be given by the Apex JAC in the days to come.
