After a briefing about the functioning of the Federation, the Secretary General started discussing the points one by one. The outcome of the meeting is shown below:

Sl. No.

Demand

Explanation

1.

Re-organisation of Audit offices –

Issues in Madhya Pradesh, Jharkand, Kerala & Maharashtra.

 

 

DAI informed that during Sectoral Reorganisation of Audit Offices, Major & Minor heads of accounts were not taken as the sole criterion but many other parameters were also considered. Main thrust was given for minimum staff dislocation. On pointing out denial of meeting for discussing issues related to  reorganization of Audit offices, which was assured by the then DAI during an agenda meeting held on 12-07-2012, the Deputy CAG has directed DG(Staff) to convene an exclusive meeting at the earliest for discussing such issues.

2.

Issues relating to AAO cadre

Treat promotions after passing SAS examinations as fresh appointment and grant Entry Cadre minimum pay to all AAOs

Exercise of option for fixation of pay in revised pay structure in case of promotions in quick succession between 01.01.2006 and 28.08.2008.

After giving a patient hearing to the issues, DAI expressed her concern for these cadres and directed the Federation to take up all those issues before the 7th CPC to have a logical and positive result.

3.

Pay parity with Central Secretariat Service

Implement Arbitration award 2004

4.

Supervisor promotion

Increase supervisor quota to 20 per cent of the sanctioned strength of AAOs.

Supervisors shall not be reverted even if the office looses deficit status subsequently.

Nomenclature of “Supervisor” may be changed as Assistant Audit Officer with Gazetted status.

It was assured that the promotion quota to the post of Supervisor will be increased to 10 per cent of AAO cadre in consultation with the CAG. That is to regularize the additional 6 per cent quota increased temporarily in deficit offices.

5.

Grant Grade Pay `5400 to Hindi Officers

 

DAI after giving a patient hearing of the arguments of the Federation on the merit of the issue and the status of similarly placed officials in other departments, directed the DG(Staff) to assess the Sanctioned Strength, Men in Position and financial liability. It was assured that a decision will be taken in consultation with CAG.

6.

Issues relating to Auditor cadre

Grant grade pay of `4600/- to Sr. Auditors with effect from 01.01.2006.

Grant GP of `4200 to Auditors

Posting of Auditors in field parties

 

Advised the Federation to take up these issues with 7CPC.  Regarding posting of Auditors in field parties, directed the DG (Staff) to issue circular to all field offices.

7.

Promotion to Data Entry Operator as Console Operator/Auditor

Federation pointed out the likely stagnation in the DEO cadre due to the uncertainty in promotion channel. It was replied that framing of Recruitment Rules are in the final stage and will be issued before the first lot of DEOs qualify for next promotion. Federation’s request to allow DEOs to write for Departmental Examination for Auditor was accepted and it was assured that the same would be included in the Recruitment Rules.

8.

Revival of SAS/RA/CPD Examinations

Withdraw negative marking scheme from SAS/RA examinations.

Reduce pass mark to 40 per cent.

Provide unlimited chances for SAS Examination

Marks obtained in SAS/RA/CPD Examinations shall be declared immediately after completing the examinations like other internationally accepted online examinations.

Allow SAS passed candidates from audit offices to excise option for posting in office of their choice after passing of SAS exam as per Recruitment Rule

Permit Multi Tasking Staff also to appear for SAS examinations.

 

 

Even though the Federation highlighted low pass percentage in SAS examinations and demanded reduction of the pass mark to 40, to provide unlimited chances and to remove the negative marking system, the DAI categorically rejected the demand and told that the computer based exam system was introduced to have qualitative result and to make the candidates more competitive to clear the exam instead of having a lethargic approach. 

Further, when the Federation demanded for supplying past question papers/model papers, it was stated that a set of model question paper will be made available from next SAS main examinations.

Federation has also pointed out the inconsistency in number of questions being asked from each section. DAI assured that from next main examinations number of questions asked will be uniformly from all sections.

Issue of permitting Multi Tasking Staff to appear for SAS examinations, the demand was out rightly rejected. However, on pointing out the stagnation in MTS cadre and the need for increasing the percentage of examination quota for promotion to CT/Auditor cadre through departmental examinations, it was assured that the percentage of examination quota would be increased shortly to avoid stagnation in MTS cadre.

9.

Revival of Departmental Examinations

Grant one incentive increment after passing DCT & SAS

Introduce MCQ pattern for Departmental Examinations and SAS selection test also

 

Not discussed

 

10.

Transfer issues

In Sports quota recruitment Include disciplines of the choice of local Recreation Clubs

 

It was told that consolidated instructions on incentives for sports persons had already been implemented.

 

Federation appraised DAI about the low rates of DA being paid to the sports persons participating in the events and also the factual position prevailing. DAI has assured that participation in sports will be treated as duty and sports persons may claim TA/DA and other incidentals as per entitlement, orders to this effect will be issued soon.

Regarding allowing local recreation clubs to choose sports disciplines of their choice for sports quota recruitment, after a long deliberation, it was agreed that the field offices will be allowed to choose at least one stream/discipline of their choice.

12.

Code of ethics - Withdraw directions to issue Certificate/Undertaking to be given to Head of Auditee Units before commencement of audit.

Demand outrightly rejected as it is mandatory as per INTOSAI standards and the commitment given by CAG being the Chair Person. However, DAI informed that there is no need to get it signed from auditee institutions.

Resolution No.3


Grant meeting on Sector-wise Restructuring of Audit Offices

Restructuring of Audit office on Sectoral basis was implemented with effect from 1st April 2012 by entrusting independent charges of General & Social Sector to one of the Accountants General and Economic & Revenue Sector to the other Accountant General of each State. The implementation was not done in a uniform manner in the State Accountant General offices viz. Madhyapradesh, Jharkand, Kerala etc. The restructuring in the offices located in Maharashtra was initially done without considering the uniform policy adopted by the CAG and later kept on hold for the reasons better known to the CAG administration. Deputy C&AG on an agenda meeting held on 25th July 2012 with this federation assured that a separate meeting will be granted to discuss various issues relating to the restructuring of audit offices. Accordingly, this federation has requested the DAI for a meeting vide letter dated 08-04-2014. In reply to this, Senior Administrative Officer (JCM) vide letter dated 23-06-2014 has communicated that our request was sympathetically considered by the competent authority but not acceded to.

The Working Committee of the National Audit Federation held at the Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship (IIE), Guwahati, Assam on 21st and 22nd September 2014, deeply condemns the pessimistic and obscure attitude of the CAG administration to deny the already assured meeting without stating any reason. It is also observed that by denying a platform for constructive dialogue on disputed issues between the representatives of the staff side and the official side is against the principles of CCS(RSA) rules 1993. Hence, this Working Committee unanimously resolved to request the Comptroller and Auditor General of India to intervene in the matter and to direct the competent authority to grant this federation a separate meeting on the issues related to the Restructuring of Audit offices.

Circular No.6/2014-16/                               Dated : 10 September 2014


To

All Unit Secretaries /Central Office Bearers / Branch Secretaries/ Zonal Secretaries / Departmental Council Members / Chief Patron / Patrons / Special Invitees.


Demand for the implementation of CAT, Chennai Bench orders to all similarly placed officials.Convene General Body meeting on or before 17th September 2014 – Pass resolution.

Friends,

The Principal Accountant General (A&E), Chennai issued orders extending the benefit of MACP scheme by fixing the Grade Pay of Assistant Accounts Officers (Applicants in OAs 966 and 967 filed at Central Administrative Tribunal, Chennai Bench in 2009) at `5400 with effect from 1-09-2008, the date on which any one of the Senior Accountants (private respondents) in the said OAs was placed in GP of `5400 under MACP scheme vide order No.Pr.AG(A&E)/Estt.I/Gl.VI/ 2014-15/194 dated 28-08-2014. Forty eight Assistant Accounts Officers including three retired AAOs were given the benefit of the said judgment.

Some of the Assistant Accounts Officers drawing Grade Pay of `4800, aggrieved on granting of Grade Pay of `5400 to Senior Accountants subordinate to them in the Principal Accountant General (A&E), Chennai, Tamil Nadu by virtue of the implementation of Modified Assured Career Progression scheme introduced in the year 2008 approached the Honorable CAT, Chennai Bench to quash the office memorandum wherein such benefit was extended to the private respondent. Honorable CAT, observed that 'the private respondents who are functioning inferior than the applicants and who are not even qualified to be promoted to the post held by the applicants are given higher pay scale in the guise of implementation of the scheme which is unsustainable in law'. Further both the OAs were disposed in the terms that; "There will be a direction to the respondents to grant the revised pay to the applicants by extending the benefit of MACP Scheme in favour of the applicants by fixing their grade pay at Rs.5400/- from the date on which the said benefit was extended to the private respondents and to disburse the accrued arrears, if any, to the applicants within a period of four weeks from the date of receipt of copy of this order". The directions of CAT were upheld by the Honorable High Court of Madras and later on the SLP filed by CAG at the Apex Court was also dismissed and hence the office order cited was issued.

We have already demanded the CAG to issue directions for the implementation of the above judgment in its letter and spirit to all similarly placed employees by citing certain judgments pronounced by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India to avoid multiplicity of litigation and in the light of Vth Central Pay Commissions recommendations that the decisions taken in one specific case either by the judiciary or the Government should be applied to all other identical cases without forcing the other employees to approach the court of law for an identical remedy or relief. In order to pressurise the CAG administration to extend the benefit of the judgment to all similarly placed officers, I request all units to convene a General Body meeting on or before 17th September 2014 to pass a resolution (draft resolution enclosed) demanding the implementation of the above and to send a copy to the CAG. I also request you to forward a copy of the resolution to the Secretary General, National Audit federation for information by post or to hand over personally in the Working Committee meeting at Guwahati.

Sub:  Implementation of CAT, Chennai Bench orders – extending benefit of MACP scheme to applicants – fixing of Grade Pay at `5400 to applicants – reg.

Ref:  Pr.AG(A&E)/Estt.I/Gl.VI/2014-15/194 dated 28-08-2014 of Pr. AG(A&E), Tamil Nadu, Chennai.

Sir,

Kind attention is invited to the reference cited wherein it was ordered to extend the benefit of MACP scheme by fixing the Grade Pay of the applicants in OAs 966 and 967 filed at Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), Chennai Bench in 2009 at `5400 with effect from 1-09-2008, the date on which any one of the private respondents in the said OAs was placed in GP of `5400 under MACP scheme.

Some of the Assistant Accounts Officers drawing Grade Pay of `4800, aggrieved on granting of Grade Pay of `5400 to Senior Accountants subordinate to them in the Principal Accountant General (A&E), Chennai, Tamil Nadu by virtue of the implementation of Modified Assured Career Progression scheme introduced in the year 2008 approached the Honorable CAT, Chennai Bench to quash the office memorandum wherein such benefit was extended to the private respondent. Honorable CAT, observed that 'the private respondents who are functioning inferior than the applicants and who are not even qualified to be promoted to the post held by the applicants are given higher pay scale in the guise of implementation of the scheme which is unsustainable in law'. Further both the OAs were disposed in the terms that; "There will be a direction to the respondents to grant the revised pay to the applicants by extending the benefit of MACP Scheme in favour of the applicants by fixing their grade pay at Rs.5400/- from the date on which the said benefit was extended to the private respondents and to disburse the accrued arrears, if any, to the applicants within a period of four weeks from the date of receipt of copy of this order". The directions of CAT were upheld by the Honorable High Court of Madras and later on the SLP filed by CAG at the Apex Court was also dismissed and hence the office order cited was issued.

The Assistant Accounts Officers of Chennai office had expended huge amounts for arbitration upto the Supreme Court of India. By making the said judgment applicable to the original applicants only, similarly placed employees may be constrained to approach Courts of Law for getting the benefits extended to them also. Several judgments have been pronounced by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India to avoid multiplicity of litigation. Some of such judgments are cited below for kind information :-

(i)  The Apex court in the case of Amrit Lal Berry v. CCE, (1975) 4 SCC, held as under:-

“We may, however, observe that when a citizen aggrieved by the action of a government department has approached the Court and obtained a declaration of law in his favour, others, in like circumstances, should be able to rely on the sense of responsibility of the department concerned and to expect that they will be given the benefit of this declaration without the need to take their grievances to court”.

(ii)  In Inder Pal Yadav v. Union of India, (1985) 2 SCC 648, the Apex Court has held as under:-

“….. those who could not come to the court need not be at a comparative disadvantage to those who rushed in here. If they are otherwise similarly situated, they are entitled to similar treatment, if not by anyone else at the hands of the Court”.

(iii)  The V Central Pay Commission in its recommendation, in regard to extension of benefit of court judgment to similarly situated, held as under:-

“126.5 – Extending judicial decisions in matters of a general nature to all similarly placed employees. – We have observed that frequently, in cases of service litigation involving many similarly placed employees, the benefit of judgment is only extended to those employees who had agitated the matter before the Tribunal/Court. This generates a lot of needless litigation. It also runs contrary to the judgment given by the Full Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal, Bangalore in the case of C.S. Elias Ahmed and others v. UOI & others (O.A. No. 451 and 541 of 1991), wherein it was held that the entire class of employees who are similarly situated are required to be given the benefit of the decision whether or not they were parties to the original writ. Incidentally, this principle has been upheld by the Supreme Court in this case as well as in numerous other judgments like G.C. Ghosh v. UOI, [(1992) 19 ATC 94 (SC)], dated 20-07-1998; K.I. Shepherd v. UOI [(JT 1987 (3) SC 600)]; Abid Hussain v. UOI [(JT 1987 (1) SC 147], etc. Accordingly, we recommend that decisions taken in one specific case either by the judiciary or the Government should be applied to all other identical cases without forcing the other employees to approach the court of law for an identical remedy or relief. We clarify that this decision will apply only in cases where a principle or common issue of general nature applicable to a group or category of Government employees is concerned and not to matters relating to a specific grievance or anomaly of an individual employee”.

(iv)  In the case of Uttaranchal Forest Rangers’ Association (Direct Recruit) v. State of U.P., (2006) 10 SCC 346, the Apex court has referred to the decision in the case of State of Karnataka v. C Lalitha (2006) 2 SCC 747 as under:-

“29. Service jurisprudence evolved by this Court from time to time postulates that all persons similarly situated should be treated similarly. Only because one person has approached the court that would not mean that persons similarly situated should be treated differently”.

I, therefore, request the Honorable Comptroller and Auditor General of India to issue directions to implement the above judgment in its letter and spirit to all similarly placed Officers in IA&AD with effect from 1-09-2008 in order to uphold the observations of the Apex Court, another Constitutional Authority, on the above well settled law point. This will also help the employees to avoid unnecessary litigations, expenditure and to concentrate on their assigned duties.

                                                                                      Yours faithfully,

(Through Shri Mannsingh, Secretary/South Zone, NAF)

Dear friend,

The primary objective of a service organisation is the welfare of the staff members and upliftment of their career as well as service conditions. In the present scenario, functioning of service organisations is a challenging task. To come to the forefront of such activities and to fight for the genuine causes of the employees is more challenging and thankless. We recognise thankfully the earnest efforts put by the association leadership in the Offices of the Accountants General, Andhra Pradesh. You have rendered selfless service in safeguarding the interests of our colleagues in the AP Offices and their welfare activities. We are proud of the unstinting efforts taken by you in this regard. Nevertheless, we regret to know that you were made to pay heavily for those efforts, by way of the disciplinary action imposed on you. We have put our best to minimise the penalty, however, we are disappointed at the present status of things. 

As you are aware, the Working Committee meeting of the National Audit Federation is being held at Guwahati, Assam on 21st and 22nd of September 2014.  We would like to honour your services in recognition of the struggle which was undertaken to uphold the service conditions and welfare measures of our colleagues in the Offices of the Accountants General, AP. I am directed to invite S/Shri Rahul (Ex-Secretary, CAA, AP), Krishnamoorthy (Ex-Secy./South Zonal, NAF & Ex-Cadre Secy., CAA, AP) and E.S. Radhakrishna (Treasurer, CAA, AP) to the forthcoming Working Committee meeting.

Kindly make it convenient to attend.

Friends,

Courtesy meeting by office bearers of NAF with the Director General (Staff) – held on the 27th June 2014.

A courtesy meeting with the Director General (Staff) Smt. Annie G. Mathew was held on the 27th June 2014 at 11.30 am in which Shri. Renjith Singh, Assistant CAG (N) was also present. Shri. Taizuddin Ahmed, President, Shri. L.S. Sujith Kumar, Secretary General, Shri. Amol Kumar Das, Additional Secretary General & Shri. Rakesh Sharma, Assistant Secretary General of National Audit Federation were attended the meeting.

It was the first meeting of the newly elected office bearers of NAF with the CAG Administration after the 9th Biennial Conference. Since it was a courtesy meeting agenda points were not discussed. President Shri. Taizuddin Ahmed, introduced the new team members to the DG(Staff). After introduction, Secretary General told DG(Staff) that the federation has requested for an agenda meeting with Dy. CAG and also a meeting on the issues that have come up after the implementation of Sectoral Re-organisation in Maharastra & Madhya Pradesh State AG offices but no reply was received from the headquarters office. Madam told us that the present Dy. CAG is retiring on 31st July 2014 and hence the agenda meeting would be granted after that by the new Dy. CAG. But regarding meeting on Sectoral Reorganization, she said that the decisions taken by senior management was only after consulting the respective Accountants General of both the States and hence, the request from the Federation for meeting on that issue could not be acceded to.

Federation has also pointed out following issues which were discussed in earlier meetings with DAI & DG(Staff) but no follow up action was taken by the hqrs. office.

1.
