Attack on the employees by Pr. CCA, CBDT

The authorities of Pr. CCA, CBDT has lunched attack on the employees. Violating the understanding between Association and administration, the office of Pr. CCA, CBDT has issued orders for transfer of the Accountants and Sr. Accountants to Field Pay Units at different stations from the ZAOS.

It was agreed by the authorities of Pr. CCA, CBDT that the vacancies in those Filed Pay Units which are located in the stations where ZAOs do not exist shall be filled up either by fresh recruits or volunteers willing to be posted in Field Pay Units.

            But recently, the office of Pr. CCA, CBDT has issued orders transferring Sr. Accountants from ZAOs of Meerut, Jaipur, Locknow, Bangalore, Bhubaneswar and Pune to different Field Pay Units. The orders for transfers have been issued without any norm and in a selective manner which are unethical and anti-employee. Most of the persons who are unwilling to move have informed us that, authorities are adamant. Such on action on the part of the authorities of Pr. CCA, CBDT has placed our members to a great inconvenience in fag end of their service.

            National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations shall not tolerate such anti-worker approach of Pr. CCA, CBDT and fight it back with its full might.
