We are very much proud for the confidence and reliance put on our service in recent years by our present Government specially, our Honourable Chief Minister. We convey our heartiest respect and thanks to her. We expect a great changeover in the scenario of Service Cadre in recent years and to give us this opportunity. We convey our heartiest thanks to the Hon’ble Finance Minister, Additional Chief Secretary, Finance Department and Finance Secretary and all officers and staff of the Finance Department, Govt. of West Bengal.
First of all, I would like to convey my thanks to everybody and good wishes from the core of my heart on behalf of our Association at the present moment when we are going to launch our website www.oaaas.in in new shape and in this occasion I also convey my good wishes in the coming celebration of the Id-uz-zoha and Sarodotsov.
Many ups and downs we have seen despite that we are marching forward for a better tomorrow and in a recent past we ourselves of three Associations sat together at the Office of the Kolkata Collectorate and an unanimous resolution was passed for moving some key demands to our Hon'ble Chief Minister and the house bestow upon us the responsibility to make a ground work and accordingly, we succeeded to achieve the same. All are well aware that we could be able to send our message to Hon'ble Chief Minister and out of our prime demand, a demand of Scale No. 21 i.e. for the post of Special Secretary has recently been awarded a good number by the Finance Department inter alia in which order, Government appreciated the West Bengal Audit & Accounts Service Cadre in the financial management arena.
We hope and believe that in future this type of united movement will definitely bring the success to get our legitimate demand fulfilled. In this context, I must convey this message that our Association very recently submitted a letter to Hon'ble Chief Minister seeking a uniform benefit like WBCS (Executive) cadre and from our side we are constantly pursuing the same. For upliftment of service and for bringing a good parity we will always demand to our Government for allowing the legitimate demand and we believe that our letter of demand will get proper weightage and Government will issue the necessary order for betterment of this service. We also welcome the good gesture of Government to send on Training of WBA & AS Cadre Officers at Oxford even.
I must request to all the members to cooperate in all respect and also convey my thanks to the well wishers and patrons those who have contributed to launch the website in a new shape in as much as I convey my thanks to our beloved members those who have wholeheartedly supported for launching the website in a new shape and hope that they will also cooperate for further enrichment of this site.
