Job Profile and Promotion Aspects – Accountant in CGA / Postal / Telecom / Others – SSC CGL

SSC CGL Recruits Accountant in CGA & Others every year.

Here is the job profile and promotion chances based on the content of real working professional : –

CGA : – Comptroller General Of Accounts : –

CGA is the Cadre agency for Accounts services of all the Central Government Ministries ( LIke , MEA , HRD , etc ) and Central Government Departments ( Like CBI , Excise ).

CGA recruits you at the level of Accountant with 2800 Grade Pay and your work in the ministry is to pass bill and make salary statement and internal audit ( Minimal Chances ) only for the concerned office.

Salary  of this post with can be seen here : – See Salary Here

Your first and compulsory promotion is on the post of Sr. Accountants after 3 year of regular service.

After the post of Sr Accountants you may get ur 2nd promotion to AAO ( Assistant Account officer – 4800 Grade Pay Gazatted ) but to become AAO u need to clear department exam – SAS

Remember : – If u do not clear your departmental exam u will be Sr Accountant life time but salary will increase.

Now it is totally on u that u become AAO in 3 years ( After 3 years u are eligible to sit for AAO Exam ) or after 10 years or never.

( Benefits of CGA over CAG : – 1.) Lifetime in Delhi in Good Ministry

2.) In CAG even u clear SAS exam – it take years to become AAO while in CGA promotion is immediate .)

Next Promotion After AAO : – AO( Accounts Officer – 5400 Garde Pay – It may take 15 years )

Next Promotion : – ( 5400 grade pay In Pay Band 3 ) : – This is the last promotion possible for the candidates recruited through SSC Exams . It will be after 12-15 year service as AO.

So this is all about CGA Accountant – Easy Life – 5 Days a week job – Minimal Work – AC Cabin – Fair Promotion Chances – 0 Corruption.

Now in 2000 , CGA separated 2 departments from Itself due to their large cadre strength and different Job Profile .

1.) Department of Telecom

2.) department of Post

Now , Department of Telecom : –

( Worst Department under CGL career growth wise  – strictly to be filled in last of preference )  : –

Postal Accounts Department : –

better from telecom but bad as compared to cga …

u will be sa in 3 years and as per new rules u will be divisional accountant ( 4600 gp ) in another 3 years subject to availability of seats.

( aao exam is also open. after 6 years of service )

  1. Sir plz give some information regarding assistant in other ministries grade pay 4200….I.e about its posting in delhi only or could be other place ..??????…its job profile and promotional aspect…..

  2. Admin which would be better between cag auditor & postal accountant…….according to ur suggestion……as i have heard that in cag maximumu ppl retire at sr AO with grade pay of 5400…….

    • Totally ur decesion ……

      postal …. 0 koi field visit nahi …. kahi dhakke nahi khane … 10 to 5 …. Typical Govt Job .. 5 days a week …. Better Promotion …. 0 Social status

      Cag …. Bahut Jyada Field Visits …. Fair Promotion ….. Good social status …… and many more benefits .

      Life is ur so decesion should be yours .

  3. Just tell meabout grade pay …… postal what grade pay we can reach…..n what abt cag……jindagi to dhakke khane ke liye hi bani hain 😉

    • Bhai agar SAS na nikla toh sari life Sr Accountant ….. Nikal Gaya toh 6600 sure hai chance 7600 k bhi poore honge if worked hard

    • 0 socail status means as compared to the inspectors/auditors rank …. Otherwise toh its a gud job not that bad ….

      Remember as what SSC NWR director said 80 lac application fpr 3-4000 clerks by SSC CHSL 2015 . You are much above them.

  4. A small correction above is AO to SR. AO in Postal or Telecom after 2 years not 12 years. From the last 15 years there is no recruitment for AAO in Postal and Telecom. There are 750 AAO vacancies as on 01.07.2015
    Almost 2/3 posts are vacant .

    • Satyan Raju …. The information provided above is given to us by A Deputy CCA ( 6600 Grade Pay officer ) who once recruited as LDC.

      But we would still like to hear from your side as well.

      It would be great if you could mail us all the details at …

      We will post the article by your name here . Perhaps this may clear many queries of job aspirants ….

      • Respected Sir,

  6. Dear Admin,
    First of all thanks to you for sharing such a valuable information. We were in dilemma about 7th pay commission salary hike but you cleared our doubts, I am working in Infosys from last 4 years, got selected in TA CBEC 2014, having aim of IAS, state PCS , Can you plz guide me if I should join TA(CBEC) or not.
    I want to know about work profile,promotion aspects of TA, your suggestion will be really appreciable

    • If ur aim had been truly IAS , You would have never asked this question.
      Remember one thing :- JO banna hai woh banna hai at any cost …….
      (However na ban paye toh apki TA ki nokri apka gujara karwa degi … Don’t worry . Now its upto u either stuck in SSC jobs profile or play blindly for UPSC )

  7. i am getting vadodara region in ta in cbec in 2013 ….
    and getting CGA according to ur list …. should I join TA ? i want delhi
    when will the joining of accountant will come?

    • completely ur choice – we can not say anything .. however i would prefer postal because it will make u gazetted officer in 3-5 years.

  8. Hello sir ,
    Actually during DV, in date of graduation I put up date of convocation as was mentioned on the degree, my online verification form was created on that basis, but during the checkin, the checker put the date of last sem mark sheet as the day f graduation, now my dossier has two dates as graduation dates, one one the initial page and different one on online verification from in dossier, will it create any problem.. Pls reply..

      • Right now I m out f station for quite a while, in case I cannot do it, will it lead to disqualification or any major issues, the dates mentioned are correct, just that on the first page the graduation date is date of final mark sheet and at the end of dossier, there is the online verification form, which has the date of convocation as graduation date.. So after the nomination, if they see the discrepancy, will they cancel my allotment or give time for clarification… If going to ssc office need to be done urgently, I will do it

    • most probable dec end main lenge ….. ye kyu diya iska jwab ahi ssc ki marji ….. kyoki aaj tak kisi ne unke is tarike k kilaf avaj nahi utai isliye woh aisa kar rahe hai …. aap avaj utana chao toh utha sakte ho … court main chale jao ….

      main 100% assure karta hu k ssc ko apne is tarike ko bhi band karna padega aur allocation bhi dubara karni padegi …. choice is urs … otherwise be happy with what u have ….
