We on behalf of this Co-ordination Committee forwarding those representations signed by more than three thousand officers and employees of the organization  for your kind perusal.
            So far as the issue of Cadre Review is concerned, all major departments of Government of India have undertaken cadre review in respect of Group “B” and “C” cadres of their respective departments. The Cadre Review of ICAS cadres have also been done five times by the Civil Accounts authorities after the formation of the Civil Accounts organization in 1976 by reducing the existing promotion prospects of AO/Sr.AO. But the Cadre Review of group “B” and “C” cadres of Civil Accounts organization was not done even for a single time.
            Apart from the issue of cadre review, group  “B” and “C” officers and employees are suffering extremely for non-settlement of ten other very important issues connected with - conducting various departmental examinations, posting/promotion of AAO (Civil) qualified persons in 2013 and 2014, grant of recognition to AICAEA Category II, continuation of the status and  facilities of recognition to AIAPAO(Civil), grant of promotion to Senior Accountants as AAOs under 10% promotion quota,  grant of upgraded pay scales to AAOs (GP 5400 after 4 years) and Senior Accountants (at par with Assistants of Central Secretariat i.e.GP 4600), extension of Gr-A Status and higher pay scales to AO/Sr. AO (PB3 GP Rs. 6600 i.e. level 11 and GP Rs. 7600i.e. level 12  after two year), grant of parity to secretarial (Stenographers) cadres with Central secretariat secretarial cadres, upgradation of LDCs as Accounts Assistant (GP 2400) and Accountant( GP 4200),  merger of DEO with Accountant/ Senior Accountant, extension of the benefit of treatment of  joining to the post of JAO/AAO after passing the examination as fresh appointment as has been done by CAG, adoption of mutually agreed transfer policy, giving timely promotion to AOs/Sr.AOs to the higher posts and ACP/ MACP benefits to other cadres by conducting DPCs regularly, grant of benefit of II ACP to Sr. Accountant from the date passing competitive examination/ 1st July of the next year of passing open examination conducted by SSC, grant of financial up gradations to MTS under ACP/MACPS at par with CAG’s organization, Grant of Headquarter allowance to Sr.PS/PS/Stenos posted in CGA office, removal of anomaly in grade pay arisen in PAO, CRPF after amalgamation of the office in Civil Accounts Organization, relaxation for revision of option for fixation of pay in the revised pay structure for persons promoted to the grade of Asstt. Accounts Officer (AAO) after 01.01.2006, suitable office accommodation with amenities to CHQ of AIAPAO (Civil) and alternative accommodation and amenities to the Central Office of AICAEA etc.

            In the formal meeting held on 15th November 2016 between the official side of CGA and the representatives of the Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Associations under the Chairpersonship of Joint Controller General of Accounts, the official side had assured staff side that the issue of cadre review shall be finalized and submitted to Department of Expenditure and expeditious settlement of ten other pending issued would also be done within a period of one month.

          The assurances given by the official side was discussed by the meeting of the co-ordination committee on 16th November2016. The meeting was happy to find that the Civil Accounts authorizes have kindly appreciated to plight of the officers and employees of the organization. Hence the meeting had unanimously decided to defer it’s decision of staging day long protest Dharna on 16th November 2016 in front of Block-E, GPOA, INA, New Delhi for a month(Reference- Resolution dated 16th November 2016 forwarded vide letter No. COC/CA/201/Corr-5 dated 16-11-20-16).

          We hope, after examining the enclosed representations of the Officers and employees, you would kindly appreciate their sentiments and take early favourable actions so that, we being the representatives of them are not placed  to revive our decision of  staging the day long Dharna and stage the same in front of Block-E, GPOA, INA, New Delhi on 16th December 2016 .

Subject: - Item No. 9 (v) of minutes of the meeting held on 15th November, 2016 between the official side of CGA Office and staff side representing the Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Associations.

Sir,

            I have been directed to refer to the above mentioned subject and state that, this Association vide item No:- 9(v) requested to consider the demand of grant of two financial upgradation to MTS under ACPS who had completed 24 years of service before implementation of MACPS. It was requested that the scheme may be implemented in the manner in which the O/o Principal Director of Audit, Economic and Services Ministries, Delhi vide order No:- AMG.1/Admn-1/32 dated 25.06.2014 has implemented in respect of the MTS working in that Department. In the very first para of the said orders it has been very correctly discussed that:-
           
“Consequent upon acceptance of the recommendation of 6th Central Pay Commission, all the erstwhile Group-D posts viz. Safaiwala, Water Man, Chowkidar, Mali, Farash, Peon, Senior Peon, Daftri, Junior Gestener Operator, etc. have been upgraded and merged in Pay Band-I (Rs. 5200-20200) with Grade Pay of Rs. 1800/-. The Post of Record Keeper was also merged in the same Grade Pay of Rs. 1800/-. Headquarters’ office vide its letter No. 197-Staff Entt.I/Pay/52-2014 dated 13.02.2014 has also clarified that all the officials who were MTS as on 01.01.2006 and completed 12/24 years of regular service on 01.01.2006 and between 01.01.2006 and 31.08.2008 are eligible for grant of 1st and 2nd financial up-gradation under ACPS and 3rd financial up-gradation under MACPS on completion of 30 years of regular service. In terms of the headquarters’ office aforesaid clarification, the financial up-gradation already granted to the officials of MTS cadre (as on 01.01.2006) of this office and the office of the Pr. Director of Audit, Scientific Departments, New Delhi (common cadre) has now been reviewed and revised, as per the Appendix hereto, from the date shown against each.”

            This decision has been authenticated by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India vide letter No: - 708-staff hak 1/254-2014 dated 04.06.2015   relevant paras of which states the following-
“…………. that the revised pay structure after obtaining on job training the non-matriculate MTS have  been placed in PB-1with Grade Pay of Rs.1800/-i.e. equivalent to the matriculate MTS as on 01.01.2006. Hence, on job training to non-matriculate MTS place them at par with Matriculate MTS w.e.f 01.01.2006.
2.             Further, the promotions earned/financial upgradation(s) earned under ACP scheme in past to those post(s)which now carry the same Grade Pay of Rs.1800/- due to merger of post(s)recommended by 6th CPC are to be ignored for the purpose of grant of financial up gradation under ACP/MACP Scheme. Hence, on completion of 12/24 years of service between  01.01.2006 and 31.08.2008 such MTS are eligible for consideration of 1st and 2nd financial up gradation under ACP Scheme  to higher grade pay of Rs.1900/- and 2800/-  respectively  subject to fulfillment of required condition under para 6 below Annexure-I to DOPT’s OM No.35034/1/97-Estt.(D)dated 09-08-1999. Also in case such MTS are granted 2nd financial up gradation to the grade pay of Rs. 2800/- under ACP Scheme, they shall be eligible for 3rd financial up gradation under MACP Scheme on completion of 30 years of service on or after 01.09.2008.”
            It is evident that the Organization of C&AG has taken above decision on the basis of the Illustration-I below para 5 of the Annexure-I of DOPT OM No:- 35034/3/2008-Estt. (D) Dated 19th May 2009 (copy enclosed). The para five of the DOPT OM is reproduced below:-

“5.  Promotions earned/upgradations granted under the ACP Scheme in the past to those grades which now carry the same grade pay due to merger of pay scales/upgradations of posts recommended by the Sixth Pay Commission shall be ignored for the purpose of granting upgradations under modified ACPS.

        Illustration –I
       
        The pre-revised hierarchy (in ascending order) in a particular organization was as under:-
           
            Rs. 5000-8000, Rs. 5500-9000 and Rs. 6500-10500

(a)  A Government servant who was recruited in the hierarchy in the pre-revised pay scale Rs. 5000-8000 and who did not get a promotion even after 25 years of service prior to 01.01.2006, in his case as on 01.01.2006 he would have got two financial upgradations under ACP to the next grades in the hierarchy of his organization, i.e., to the pre-revised scales of Rs. 5500-9000 and Rs. 6500-10500.
(b)  Another Government servant recruited in the same hierarchy in the pre-revised scale of Rs. 5000-8000 has also completed about 25 years of service, but he got two promotions to the next higher grades of Rs. 5500-9000 and Rs. 6500-10500 during this period.
In the case of both (a) and (b) above, the promotions/financial upgradations granted under ACP to the pre-revised scales of Rs. 5500-9000 and Rs. 6500-10500 prior to 01.01.2006 will be ignored on account of merger of the pre-revised scales of Rs. 5000-8000, Rs. 5500-9000 and Rs. 6500-10500 recommended by the Sixth CPC. As per CCS (RP) Rules, both of them will be granted grade pay of Rs. 4200 in the pay band PB-2. After the implementation of MACPS, two financial upgradations will be granted both in the case of (a) and (b) above to the next higher grade pays of Rs. 4800 in the pay band PB-2.”

            It appears from the note dated 12.08.2016 of DOPT (forwarded to this Association by your office on 22.08.2016) that the DOPT is now contradicting its original OM dated 19.05.2009 which has been implemented in all departments of the Government of India.
            Therefore, this issue deserves further discussion and a fresh reference to DOPT as well. But, it has been recorded in the minutes that:-
“DOPT has not accepted the proposal. Association was accordingly intimated vide this office letter dated 22.08.2016.  Matter closed”
            Closure of the item unilaterally by the official side is not acceptable to the staff side on the following grounds:-

1.      The MTS working in the organizations of C&AG and CGA are Central Government Employees and Service conditions of Central Government Employees are regulated by one single authority through DOPT and Ministry of Finance.
2.      The MTS working in the organizations of C&AG and CGA are the part of organized Accounts cadres. The Government of India and the Central Pay Commissions have been always giving the same treatment to all cadres of both the organizations.
3.      Treatment of same group of Employees differently by same employer (i.e. Central Government) is untenable and these poor paid lowest grade employees should be accorded justice.
4.      Since the MTS of other Central Government Department are having the benefit, the MTS of Civil Accounts Organization should not be deprived in isolation.
            Therefore, we request you that, instead of closing the item, it may kindly be taken up with the Government effectively.

Thanking you,
Yours Sincerely,
Enclo:- as above
