Hi all

Howz u r preparation

If u thunk like this u will get nothing in life

In ocean of unempltment u have to do what ever come to u r way

 This is for people cribbing and misguiding people with wrong information regarding AAO post. Please folks stop this game of trying to reduce competition by wrong means. It is without any doubt the best post under SSC CGL 2016 not only because it has 4800 grade pay , there are many more reasons.

1) The exposure you get here is immense. The work involves auditing balance sheets and expenditure of various PSU'S and government offices.

2) It is the only post in CGL in which you can get to do work related to policy making (after 20 years of service you may reach level of deputy auditor general).

3) As far as promotion is concerned , You can rise to level of senior deputy auditor general which is equivalent to IRS (Indian Revenue Services). Ya first promotion is slow which takes 6-8 years but after that promotions are fast. (one becomes senior audit officer only 2-4 years after 1st promotion).

4) As far as SAS exam is concerned.The exam is of very basic nature and people circulating fake news regarding it. People already working in CAG at grade pay 4200 when selected for AAO (via internal promotion or via departmental exam) are made to undergo a training and after that exam is conducted. If they fail they are demoted back to their orignal 4200 grade pay. It is first time that direct recruitment of AAO is being conducted so regarding it nothing is clear.

5)Ya the job involves lot of travelling but it is highly subjective that someone likes to travel or not. You can get transferred only after minimum 3 years. You get 600-650Rs (Fixed) per day as travelling allowance when you are working on an assignment that involves travelling. You can easily save half of that amount. (Its not black money but a legal white money).

6) After working for 10-15 years in CAG you can easily switch to private sector consulting firms like BCG , PWC EY , KPMG etc...

There are numerous more positives of this post which without any doubt makes it best post in CGL 2016. People misguiding others stop doing so. (PS: I am not an appointed official of CAG to blabber about its post.)
