The Confederation of Central Government Gazetted Officers’ Organisations is an apex level organization embracing in its fold a number of Gazetted Officers’ Organisations of the Central Government departments such as Railway Promotee Officers, Income Tax Gazetted Officers, All India Audit and Accounts Officers, Pay and Accounts Officers(Civil), Postal & Telecom financial Accounts Officers, Zoological Survey, Botanical Survey, Customs Preventive Officers, Indian Ordinance Factories Gazetted Officers, DRDO Technical Officers, DGQA Engineers, CPWD Engineers, Postal Officers, Marine product Export Development Authority promotee Officers, Statistical Gazetted Officers, etc.
As you may be aware, Sir, the Gazetted officers are facing lot of difficulties in withdrawing cash from their bank accounts due to demonetization process of Rs.1000 and Rs.500 currency notes. Many of these officers often undertake tours to discharge the Government Duties. Banks have imposed a cap of Rs.24000 from Savings Bank account. The compulsion to wait in the queue for hours for withdrawal of cash adversely affects their discharge of Government duties in time.
In view of the peculiar situation, I request you to issue necessary instructions to all Pay Drawing and Disbursing Officers to make arrangements for payment of salary of November 2016 in cash to all Gazetted and prmotee Group ’A’ officers, as a onetime measure, on or before 30th November 2016.
