Gandhi's great Grandson Mr.TUSHAR GANDHI makes key note address at ASCI on 10-9-2011. He has much understanding of the Gandhian philosophy. His attachment to the non-violence unpeccable.

On the invitation of SARVODAYA, AP Chapter, Hyd, Mr Tushar Gandhi, great grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, visited Hyderabad to render key note address on 10-9-2011(6 - 8.30PM) at Administrative Staff College of India.
To me, it is one of the memorable interactions that would be remembered for long. 
His simplicity with high degree of understanding of Mahatma's conviction on the methods of Truth and Non-violence made everyone spell bound. While narrating a heart rending event took place during SALT SATYAGRAHA Movement involving a SIKH Patriot , his voice went silent in grief for few seconds. Seeing him in such status, all those listening him in apt silence and total attention fell spell bound with increased vibrating hearts and watery eyes. His capacity to move the audience to enliven the events of almost a century old is superb and would instill confidence in the Gandhian Faith that shook the mighty British Empire.
The session undoubtedly become a memorabilia and remains for long.

Some of the photos taken by the organisers are posted below for view.[The author of this post is in WHILE full sleeve shirt and with spectacles. ]

 THE RESOLUTION PASSED IS AS SUGGESTED BY ALL  INDIA ASSOCIATION THAT READS AS UNDER


Resolution:

This General Body of the Sr Accounts Officers & Accounts Officers’ Association,  Office of the Principal Accountant General (A&E) AP, Hyderabad in its meeting held on July 20th 2011, notes that the just demand of AOs/SAOs of the IA&AD for improvement in Grade Pay, being pursued through the All India Audit and Accounts Officers Association, and has remained unmet by the authorities.     
            It further notes that the latest set of representation justifying our demand was submitted to the Finance Minister on 23rd March by the Federation. However it appears that these representation have not received the attention of the concerned authorities even after three months, perpetuating the gross injustice being suffered by the AOs/SAOs.
           This General Body, therefore, resolves that it should remind the Secretary (Expenditure) of its demands and to seek expeditious settlement of the demands.
           It is further resolved that for this purpose a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Secretary Expenditure.
          The General Body directs the Secretary of the Association to carry out this by forwarding the resolution to the authorities as above.

GOOD NEWS to departmental promotees ! Their pay would be hiked on par with their junior Direct Recruitees who were appointed on or after 1-1-2006.

Please CLICK on the CAPTION to get the orders of CBDT

The Central Board of Direct Taxes(Income Tax Department) has considered the representations from Departmental promotees for fixation of pay equivalent to minimum entry pay prescribed for Direct Recruites (appointed on or after 1.1.2006). Also, stepping up of pay of  senior promotees with reference to direct recuit juniors recruited on or after 1.1.2006 and whose basic pay was more than that of their seniors, was considered.
Now, the CBDT has issued ordes to the effect that the stepping up of basic pay of seniors is allowed.  It has been laid down that such stepping up can be claimed only in the case of those cadres which have an direct recruitment and where a directly recruited junior is actually drawing more basic pay than the seniors.  In such cases, the basis pay of seniors will be stepped up w.r.to the basic pay of junior. 
Stepping up will be applicable from the date junior direct recruit actually draws higher basic pay than his senior.
Let us await same kind of clarification from our CAG office. Putting some pressure is needed now.
The issue hence forth will be settled partially only. Some may get relief where a Direct Recruitee is appointed on 1-1-2010. Where such DR is appointed at a later date, the senior Deptl Promotee would get his pay on par with that of DR, neither  w.e.f. 1-1-2006 nor from his date of promotion BUT W.E.F. THE DATE OF APPOINTMENT OF HIS JUNIOR DR [in other words the Deptl Promotees should pray for an appointment of a DR at the earliest in their office AND well before their pay gets enhanced by way of increments, to the level of pay allowed to a DR.
THIS ABONOXIOUS DISPARITY SHOULD BE REMOVED BY THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE TO PROVE IT's CAPACITY TO UNDERSTAND THE ILLOGICAL PAY FIXATIONS THAT SHATTER THE SPIRITS OF Deptl Promotees.

As you are all aware our Association is vigorously pursuing the issue of Upgradation of Grade pays of AOs & Sr.AOs.

Keeping this goal in view the Federation is relentlessly pursuing the matter with the Finance Minister. We have already presented a memorandum to Honorable Finance Minister. We are also presenting our case before as many Cabinet Ministers and Members of Parliament as possible to persuade them to take up our issue with Finance Minister.
