GOOD PREPARATION TO FIGHT BACK
The preparations for the show down have been going on well. Posters have been dispatched to all Branches and Units of the country. In Delhi, Central Office Bearers have been moving from unit to unit in a routine manner, explaining the issues, distributing hand bills/Posters and appealing upon the members to participate and make the Mass Dharna in front of CGA Office on 8th December2010 a grand success.

Departmental Anomaly Committee Meeting
The Departmental Anomaly Committee Meeting was held on 23rd November 2010 under the chairpersonship of Addl. Secretary (Revenue). Secretary General (the lone staff side member from Civil Accounts organization) and Com. A. K. Mehta, Vice President, AICAEA (representing AICAEA) attended the meeting.
Despite pointing out in writing and explaining personally to the Director (A), Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure on 22nd November 2010 by us, he did not agree to invite even a single officer from the Civil Accounts organization (CGA) as official side member in the Anomaly Committee and took an adamant position that, when CGA did not refer any item to him so far there was no question of involving CGA in this matter.
Similarly, CGA office was also requested by us in writing to pursue the matter of the presence of the officers from CGA office as official side representative in the meeting from Civil Accounts Organization in the greater interest of different categories of employees of Civil Accounts Organization. But CGA Office did not take any action. Subsequently when they were requested verbally on 22nd November to intervene into the matter, they stood on their ego and told us that, since they have not been invited, they would not approach the authorities of Ministry of Finance for their induction as official side representatives in the Anomaly Committee.
The meeting of 23rd November was however inconclusive. Due to paucity of time, a few items were discussed and adopted as anomaly items out of the 28th items referred by representatives of different Departments functioning under Revenue, Economic Affairs and Expenditure. It has been decided by the Chairman that another meeting will be convened for discussion of rest of the issues and their consideration as anomaly items. Four issues referred from AICAEA had not been discussed and those are expected to come up for discussion in the next meeting.
HOW TO TAKE LEAVE?
