RECOVERY OF ADVANCE INCREMENT FROM ARREARS
We have just now sent you through sms the following message.
HOLD DEMONSTRATION IN FRONT OF ZAO'S OFFICE IF RECOVERY IS
INSISTED ON ADVANCE INCREMENT.
After obtaining the necessary sanction from the Chairman, CBDT, the DIT (HRD) has written to the Chief Controller of Accounts for the stay of recovery of the amount arising from the grant of advance increments for those who had passed the Departmental Examination in 2006,2007 and 2008. In fact the orders of the ZAO were illegal which should have been properly objected to by the CCITs. The audit objection would become final only after receipt of the reply from the concerned authority and considered by the Audit. No such procedure has been adopted by the ZAO in this matter. This apart, they had no difficulty in granting Qualification pay for those Auditors and Accountants who had qualified the SAS Examination. The rule that is quoted in our case was chosen not to be invoked in their own case. Despite the issuance of the letter by the Board for stay of recovery till a final decision in the matter, we have been informed by the Circle General Secretaries that some of the ZAO has been insisting in making the recovery. We are, therefore, left with no alternative but to tread the path of agitation. Hence the above message.
The Examination for 2009 stands postponed in view of the election in Maharashtra and Haryana. The exam will now commence from 26th October, 2009 as per the decision of the Directorate in this regard.
So far the Board has not given its consent to make the amendments in the rules in respect of the following:
(a) chance to improve performance for SC/ST candidate.
(b) Omission of O.P Paper from the ITOs Examination
(c) Reduce the negative marking from 1/4th to 1/8th.
The Sectt. Will meet on 11th and if no orders are issued by them we will be constrained to call upon all to boycott the Examination in view of the continuing impasse in the matter.
GRADE Pay for Inspectors.
Today we had a meeting on the above subject with the JS(Per). The issue has not been settled. . Contrary to the decision taken by the Revenue Secretary earlier to the effect that the issue will be separately considered and appropriate decision taken, the Expenditure Department has now proposed to consider this along with all other similar issues and demands. In view of this development, the Sectt. Meeting which is slated for 11th might be constrained to revive the decision to organize strike action in the winter session of the Parliament.
