    AITEEA extends its All out support to AIBSNLEA in the First MV to be held on 7.12.2016

  • All My dear Friends & Fraternity; As all of you are well aware that AITEEA is pursuing hard the Pay Parity Issue (initial basic 22820 from DOA) of All Post 2007 Executives with respect to second PRC from the Ministry of Communication to the highest corridors of top Management. Since the inception of this association, we have not spared a single moment as a team & put all out efforts to raise this genuine demand of our pay loss at every avenue of Policy makers & before main stream associations. Now as membership verification is coming nearer & nearer, it seems as if All main stream association are willing to take our issue as their core agenda & in turn they need our support. This is among appreciable achievements of AITEEA as it has been successful in making it as the issue of All associations. Now we have to evaluate to whom we have to rely on & to whom we have to shed off. After major discussion with top leaders of All Main stream Associations & after thoroughly evaluating all pros and con's , it is decided by Our CHQ with consensus that AIBSNEA is the most Earnest who is willing to take up and resolve our issue genuinely before implementation of 3rd PRC. Therefore AITEEA extends its All out support to AIBSNLEA & request All its members specially to post 2007 Executive Fraternity & well-wishers to support AIBSNLEA in this membership verification. Now it is our duty to try our best to make AIBSNLEA no.1 association by casting our valuable vote at ballot no.1 for the sake of fastest resolution of our Pay Loss Issue. All our Circle/District Office bearers are requested to take it as Do or Die situation for the thumping majority of AIBSNLEA.
  • GS-AITEEA

AIBSNLEA extends its sincere thanks and gratitude to AITEEA CHQ leadership & their entire membership thought-out the country for extending their valuable support and making AIBSNLEA No.1 Executive Associations by casting their vote to AIBSNLEA on 07.12.2016. AIBSNLEA ensures the settlement of their pay loss of JTO 2007 & 2008 batches and to bring them in IDA pay Rs. 22820/-. AIBSNLEA will not leave any stone unturned for the resolution of this issue. AIBSNLEA will always stand with AITEE to safeguard the interest of executives in BSNL and to save BSNL.

Election campaign of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA at BSNL Corporate Office, New Delhi:

BSNL Corporate Office AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA both together are all set to create a history in the 1st Membership Verification of the Executive Associations. Nukkad Sabhas has been organized on 01.12.2016 and 05.12.2016 followed by desk to desk canvassing by a large group of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA office bearers and activists. An overwhelming response is observed in all the executives.

<<<<Click here for the Glimpses of the Nukkad Sabha at BSNL Corporate Office>>>>>>

AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA will take appropriate action at the appropriate forum against the false allegations levelled against Warangal Executives by other Association.

Membership Verification vis-à-vis the Role of AIGETOA - AIGETOA appeals all Executives to vote AIBSNLEA in coming Membership Verification on 7th December 2016.

Rightly Said by one of the mainstream associations, the bargaining power depends on the majority of the recognized Association and that in turn decides the acceleration in settling the issues.

The Management’s vision on the ensuing Referendum is quite clear. The reply which they have submitted to AIGETOA states the purpose without any ambiguity. It is stated that Management wants to hold referendum as they want to take the view of the majority association on issues like Restructuring of BSNL, Rationalization of Posts, Recruitment of Management Services, cadres etc. Therefore, prime purpose of the referendum process is to recruit Management Trainees, DGMs in the middle management and curtailment in the number of Posts. 
Now we can understand the desperation level of those who were asking for referendum to happen. However, now when it is happening, it is duty of each and every executive that the right association should come forward. 

As far as the status of AIGETOA is concerned, we have been pursuing for separate representation status for BSNL Recruited Executives. Our case for separate recognition is being heard in Kolkata High Court and Court has stated that the current referendum is subject to outcome of the case. The case is listed for arguments next week. We hope for a positive outcome from the Hon’ble court. We are also thankful to AIBSNLEA for supporting the stand of AIGETOA and conveying to management that separate recognition for association of BSNL recruits should be ensured. Similarly, our circle bodies are pursuing their cases at Different Courts. We sincerely hope that a positive outcome will be there. Those who are saying that AIGETOA will not survive, are simply running into fools paradise, these are their day dreams or atmost some identity crisis syndrome. AIGETOA was, is and will remain as the custodian of the DR's Right and anybody claiming beyond that is a simple prejudice and nothing else. People are smart enough to realize and if anybody thinks that DRs can be forced to follow a cult syndrome, then that is again their day dream.

As we are aware that after the ensuing membership verification, there will be only two Associations in the BSNL and the policy matters and HR issues will be discussed and negotiated only with the majority Association. Therefore in the membership contest, it is very important that the number one association comes with a thumping majority so that the second association cannot become a hurdle in policy making. Therefore it becomes the duty of Electoral College to ensure that the scenario post refer
endum gives a clear mandate to the majority association so that the issues can be carried forward without any hitch and glitches. Accordingly, AIGETOA appeals to all the executives to ensure that votes remains in favor of the association which can carry the issues and aspirations of the whole executive fraternity. Accordingly, it is expected from each and every executive that they should cast their vote in favor of association which can carry their aspirations and issues effectively before management and does not become the tool for carrying forward the agenda of Management. Any vote which is not polled in favor is equivalent to voting against your own issues. So votes should positively be casted by every eligible executive and they should ensure the their vote should not go waste.

Now the question that comes in the mind that whom should the executives vote for. It is expected from each and every executive that he should be aware of his rights and his issues. He should remain aware of what is good for us and what is bad. Who can carry our aspirations and who can kill our future career. 

AIGETOA has always stood firm for the rights of the executives especially for the issues pertaining to the BSNL recruits. The burning issues vis-à-vis the stand of AIGETOA is as below:

Pay - We once again emphasize that AIGETOA is for replacement of initial two scales only. All other options can be explored later on when E1A and E2A are replaced by E2 and E3.

We have suggested merging of Sr. SDE scales and SDE scales which would entail the youngsters to reach E4 scale in 10 years of service instead of 15 years. Alternatively we gave a proposal to replace the initial two scales and that everything else can be taken care of later on once the standard pay scales are in place. We are against keeping an executive in E3 scale for 10 years. If any body needs five promotions assured, they may ask management to extend it to E7. This will give a great boost to the careers of the youngsters and assured time bound Promotions upto E7 level will end the stagnation in E6 level for seniors also. We are thankful to AIBSNLEA for carrying for supporting our cause. We are also thankful to them that they have clarified that if management comes with a proposal where initial two scales are replaced, the same will be acceptable to them. 

The Promotion is given as per EPP in every five years without keeping an executive in E3 scale for 10 years which can be discussed after the implementation of initial two scales, the same was acceptable to United Forum earlier also and same is acceptable to United Forum now also. Further, the talks of Financial implication of this proposal is also very less.

We are also thankful to AIBSNLEA for agreeing to carry forward the demand of Pay Parity of Executives recruited after 1.1.2007 with those recruited before 1.1.2007 i.e. Rs. 22820/- as initial basic. We are grateful that they have delinked initial basic of Rs. 22820/- with proposal of standard pay scales and are pursuing it as a separate demand so that the younger executives can at least overcome the burden of Pay Loss. AIGETOA is determined for the Resolution of Pay Anomaly though in different way i.e. E2 + 3 increments. However now that AIBSNLEA has agreed to carry forward this demand, AIGETOA will ensure that they don’t deviate from it post referendum. AIGETOA is also determined that mandatory provisions of second PRC recommendations is ensured before extending the third PRC Benefits. We are determined to go to any extent for that including legal means. 

The Pre-condition to put the Executives in E3 scale for 10 years was the prime reason for management offering the proposal of upgrading all scales as management was also not convinced on this unreasonable demand. Now this is for people to decide who wanted cascading and who did not.

Promotion
 -  AIGETOA is for securing the careers of thousands and thousands of the BSNL recruited executives. AIGETOA is for a career path where each and every executive who enters the department should have the path to reach the level of CMD. AIGETOA supports a stand where there is no limit of posts at AGM Level, there is no capping on AGM posts. AIGETOA supports a hierarchy where the promotions are not being talked up to the level of Sr. SDE. AIGETOA is in favor of a stand where there is no lateral recruitment above the level of JTO/JAO/Equivalent. AIGETOA wants a promotion mechanism where BSNL is free of words like MT, DGM recruitment. AIGETOA is for a promotional scheme which does not differentiate the selected 150 to reach upper scales and leaving all other executives in lurch. AIGETOA is in favor of implementing Khan Committee report in its true spirit not twisting and tweaking. AIGETOA wants to streamline the Rota amongst the executives in line with the quota from beginning. 

AIGETOA wants time bound functional promotion upto E7 becomes a reality for all executives. AIGETOA knows the difference between LDCE and that of LATERAL RECRUITMENT. AIGETOA Knows the difference between creating a new Cadre (MT) and giving promotions through LDCE.

AIGETOA agrees, accepts and states that there is huge talent pool available in BSNL and hence we don’t want middle management through Parachute Landing. Dream of AIGETOA is that one amongst us reaches to the esteemed post of CMD BSNL. AIGETOA is against bringing back the DoT legacy in BSNL where the group B officers were forced to retire without reaching STS level. AIGETOA cannot forget the talent of those who rendered services in BSNL for so many years. AIGETOA feels the blood of Executives is Fresh enough to take over the responsibilities of Middle and Higher Management in BSNL.

AIGETOA is thankful to AIBSNLEA for extending its helping hands in carrying forward the agenda of AIGETOA. It was because of AIGETOA’s struggle that MT has not been allowed in department till date. It is AIGETOA which stopped entry of MT in year 2008 and 2009 and together with AIBSNLEA in the year 2015-16. It is because we stopped MT, that so many seniors are now regular DGMs else that replication of old DoT era was not very far when Group B officers were forced to retire as PoTA DE.

AIGETOA is for parity between Executives getting promotion through LDCE and DPC. Hence AIGETOA wants that SDE RRs should be passed at the earliest. AIGETOA wants that executives waiting for their promotions for so many years should be promoted immediately without any further wait. AIGETOA wants that corrected seniority list should be submitted to court immediately so that promotions through DPC may be held smoothly. AIGETOA wants that promotion orders of the LDCE passed candidates be issued immediately and those trying to delay it and linking it through CPSU should be taught a lesson. AIGETOA is extremely thankful to AIBSNLEA for pursuing the agenda of Executives and sincerely hopes that long pending dispute of Rota in Quota shall be applied to executives promoted through all vacancy years. 

AIGETOA really appreciates them who went in the meeting with agitation withdrawal letter in their pocket in United Forum Struggle 2012. It was AIGETOA which took a firm stand that a committee should be constituted for examining the CPSU and Pay Scales Proposal else people were willing to withdraw just over a cup of tea with management and now claiming credit for constitution of Khan Committee. It was our vision that now the scales proposal and CPSU proposal is captured in black & white with positive recommendation
.

AIGETOA is for extending one increment to all the executives whose promotion orders have been delayed by Management. We are thankful to AIBSNLEA for assuring that one increment shall be extended to all whose promotion orders have been delayed due to administrative reasons.

AIGETOA is for the welfare of DR fraternity and hence welcomes the support of AIBSNLEA as they have carried forward our agenda without any ambiguity and without any preconditions like executives should be forced to stay for 10 years in E3, Middle Management should have parachute landing in BSNL, one assured promotion in CPSU etc. etc. They are firm that executives should not be forced to stay in E3 for 10 years just like us, They are dead against recruitment of MT/DGM just like us, They want promotion channel with a path to reach the apex level just like us. We thank AIBSNLEA for the efforts they took to protect the interests of BSNL recruited Executives.

Pension
 - AIGETOA is against any Hypocrisy in this most important demand of BSNL recruits which pertains to the social security of them after retirement. AIGETOA wants full 30 percent SAB and any dilution in that is not acceptable. Those who are asking for 30 Percent Superannuation Benefit.. and keeping 6 Percent demand in their manifesto should at least make their calculations correct. AIGETOA is against anybody calling the demand of 12 Percent unrealistic. AIGETOA is against anybody not attending the meeting and saying others surrendered. There was a call for everybody in the meeting... General Secretary AIBSNLEA was also not in the station on that day but their AGS attended the meeting. AGS and President AIGETOA attended the meeting. President NFTE also attended the meeting. Those who did not even bother to send their representative in the meeting for reasons best known are now calling that they would have ensured more. Perhaps they were aware what is going to happen and wanted to wash their hands away from it and hence missed the meeting...That meeting paved the way for creation of Superannuation Trust for BSNL recruits.. That meeting Paved the way for revision of quantum of Superannuation Contribution after actuarial analysis...that meeting paved the way for revision in date of implementation ...and it is that meeting that Management is agreeing for increasing the quantum now. We are against this Hypocrisy of doing nothing when given a chance and then singing the song. We are thankful to AIBSNLEA for helping us towards resolution of the issues. We are thankful to them for actually working and not just singing the songs. ..

We want that who so ever comes first should carry forward the agenda of resolution of burning issues pertaining to all BSNL recruits. Accordingly we want the one who supports Merger of Sr. SDE and SDE cadres and extending Promotions as Per EPP. This will open the gates of E7 for seniors also. We want that somebody who comes first should defeat the designs of Management to recruit MTs and DGMs in the middle. We want somebody who sincerely and whole heartedly works for Pay Parity of the executives recruited after 01.01.2007. We want somebody who says demand of 12 Percent Superannuation is realistic, somebody who works for getting 30 Percent Superannuation Benefit on ground. We sincerely hope that all the executives will understand what is good for them and request them to be on the side where the resolution of the issue lies. We sincerely hope and believe that AIBSNLEA will come out with a thumping majority from the sample survey taken and we feel that our issues are in safe hands.

With regard to the future of AIGETOA after referendum, our case for granting separate recognition to association for BSNL recruited Executives is under persuasion at Hon’ble Kolkata High Court by AIGETOA CHQ, Hon’ble Allahabad High Court by representatives of UP West and UP East Circle and at Hon’ble High Court at Cuttack by representatives of Odisha Circle. As you are aware that Hon’ble High Court admits the case only when there is merit in the case and accordingly we believe that Hon’ble Court of Law will consider our representation. On that front also, AIBSNLEA has supported us by writing to management for the separate representative status to association for BSNL recruited executives. Therefore, in the event of judgement coming in our favor, it becomes all the way necessary that both the representative association works in synch with each other for resolution of the issues. Further, the name of AIGETOA is associated with the fight for right...Till that fighting spirit is there inside us, any referendum, any recognition, any management can not stop us from fighting for our rights.

We find that AIBSNLEA is in our side on the issues and hence we appeal all the executives to be on AIBSNLEA side in referendum to be held on 7th December 2016 and vote for them.

False propaganda spread by SNEA(I) against AIBSNEA: SNEA(I) has made false propaganda on their CHQ website regarding Kerala issue. The fact remains that SNEA(I) during their agitation in Kerala Circle against transfers and postings of their members tried to victimize the members of AIBSNLEA through Circle administration. They wanted cancellation of transfer orders of their members only but they never wanted same treatment for the members of AIBSNLEA rather tried to misbehave & harass lady member of AIBSNLEA. Against this AIBSNLEA protested and demanded to protect the interest of AIBSNLEA members and demanded stern action against the culprits, who have misbehaved and harassed a lady officer -  the member of AIBSNLEA.

AIBSNLEA never supported the Ex-CGMT Kerala Circle Shri M.S.S. Rao and declared him an honest officer. Shri M.S.S. Rao fought with Director (CFA)- the Director of South Zone and CMD BSNL, hence suffered.

AIBSNLEA never support corruption in BSNL whereas one association continued to do this business, and writing letters in support of vendors for procurement of materials, against vendors to cancel the tenders and to support some other vendor, who is writing letters against GMTD/CGMT for the transfers and posting of their favorable GMs and CGMs in the Circle.

AIBSNLEA is forced to clarify as mentioned above since it is alleged wrongly. AIBSNLEA always concentrate to settle the problems of its members and to save their interest and never indulge in corrupt practices by supporting one vendor or opposing other vendor.

Com. P.N. Sharma, CS AIGETOA in his address cleared about the need of referendum and also explained against whom this referendum is. He also explained about what we get in this referendum?  He mentioned that in Rajasthan Circle the position of AIBSNLEA is very strong and the same is reflected during his visit in various branches of Raj.Circle with CS AIBSNLEA.

In his address, he praised Rajasthan Circle for untiring support in All India/ CHQ Calls any time. He also mentioned that he started his association career as District Secretary from Jaipur SSA and also explained the need of MOU with AIGETOA and assured GS AIGETOA victory of AIBSNLEA is victory of AIGETOA.

During his elaborated speech he deliberated the history of problems and the efforts of AIBSNLEA in getting resolution of all the issues like finalization and implementation of  Executive Promotion Policy, Transparent Transfer Policy,2nd PRC implementation with 30% fitment benefit, Pay Revision of Executives after formation of BSNL.  He said that he is in continuous campaign since the last 2 months all over the country to all the members for their overwhelming support to be No. 1 executive association in the forthcoming membership verification of BSNL executives, AIBSNLEA consisting of 10 executive association of BSNL i.e Telecom Engg, Telecom Finance and Accounts, Civil, Electrical, Architecture, TF Engg wings, PA/PS, Central Secretariat Staff, AD(OL).  He appraised that at the time of formation of BSNL and after exercise of our absorption BSNL Management assured us that executive promotion policy shall be implemented in BSNL.  All our legitimate issues were not settled for 6-7 years after the formation of BSNL . After a long struggles against negative approach of the then ITS officers, EPP was achieved in 18-01-2007. But EPP is not achieved as per our aspiration.  Our demand is that there should be non post based assured time bound promotion of absorbed Group B executive up to the level of SG-DGM and after that according to the vacancy.  Earlier one JTO used to get only one promotion during his service and retired from maximum DE (Ad-Hoc).But Now with the consistent efforts of AIBSNLEA, our lot of Executives have got promoted to DGM in Engg, Finance, TF and C/E/Arch wings.   AIBSNLEA is against any lateral entry above the rank of JTO and JAO and determined to get MTRR/DR DGM RR scrapped and for promotion of Executives recruited from Basic Cadre (JTO/JAO) up to the highest level of CGM/CMD like other CPSUs. He elaborated that 3rd PRC is coming, before that our E2 & E3 pay scales for JTO and SDE level Executives.  This is a heart burnt issue of our sister association when the DR executives will reach SDE to DE scale after completion of 10 years of service by merging SDE and Sr.SDE cadre, so they are trying to remain in the E-3 scale for the 10 years to be a hindrance to our young executives.  Our demand is that E1A to be replaced by E-2 and E2A to be replaced by E-3. But due to indifferent attitude of DoT Administration, the issue is yet to be resolved. AIBSNLEA is determined to resolve the issue and invoked all members to be ready for agitation on the issue. He discussed the efforts of  AIBSNLEA in getting removal of 60:40 condition of pension and 78.2% fitment benefit orders for pensioners. He said that AIBSNLEA is determined that 30 % superannuation is to be settled and this should be given effect from 1-1-2007, in the same manner by which 2005, 2010 JAO batch pay anomaly case has been settled, 2007 and 2008 batches JTOs should be given pay scale of Rs. 22,820/- and their pay scale should be revised.  He informed that E-1+5 increments to JAO 2013,JTO (SRD) PA cadre, SDE RR modification, E-5 to E-6 time bound promotions to DGMs, MT Quota diversion to CAO waiting for board approval.  Now a Committee has been constituted to examine the cases already approved by MC of BSNL Board. AIBSNLEA is consistently pursing with the Management to get this issues settled in the BSNL Board meeting to be held on 17th Dec-2016.He intimated that  2000 SDE to DE and 828 AO to CAO DPC is under process.  8600 JTO to SDE, SDE to EE Civil is under process.  48 PPS post has been created. AD (OL) restructuring approval is pending in DoT.  25% Sr. Hindi Translator posts will be upgraded to JTO scale.  GSM with GPRS data facility, mobile handset and 525 plan have been provided. Now their further improvement is under active consideration. In the 3rd PRC BSNL being a Schedule A company all the benefits should be given accordingly.  BSNL is the only telecom sector to provide service in remote area of Uttaranchal, Jammu & Kashmir.  BSNL has earned operating profit for the last three consecutive financial years. And last year, it was Rs. 3880 crores.  So pay should be revised in 3rd PRC.  It should be extended to BSNL pensioner also.  This is our responsibility and we have made our presentation to 3rd PRC twice.  JAO 2016 batch have got their posting and orders have been issued recently for making him eligible for voting power.

He said that AIBSNLEA is determined that 30 % superannuation is to be settled and this should be given effect from 1-1-2007, in the same manner by which 2005, 2010 JAO batch pay anomaly case has been settled, 2007 and 2008 batches JTOs should be given pay scale of Rs. 22,820/- and their pay scale should be revised.  He informed that E-1+5 increments to JAO 2013,JTO (SRD) PA cadre, SDE RR modification, E-5 to E-6 time bound promotions to DGMs, MT Quota diversion to CAO waiting for board approval.  Now a Committee has been constituted to examine the cases already approved by MC of BSNL Board. AIBSNLEA is consistently pursing with the Management to get this issues settled in the BSNL Board meeting to be held on 17th Dec-2016.He intimated that  2000 SDE to DE and 828 AO to CAO DPC is under process.  8600 JTO to SDE, SDE to EE Civil is under process.  48 PPS post has been created. AD (OL) restructuring approval is pending in DoT.  25% Sr. Hindi Translator posts will be upgrad to JTO scale.  GSM with GPRS data facility, mobile handset and 525 plan have been provided. Now their further improvement is under active consideration. In the 3rd PRC BSNL being a Schedule A company all the benefits should be given accordingly.  BSNL is the only telecom sector to provide service in remote area of Uttaranchal, Jammu & Kashmir.  BSNL has earned operating profit for the last three consecutive financial years. And last year, it was Rs. 3880 crores.  So pay should be revised in 3rd PRC.  It should be extended to BSNL pensioner also.  This is our responsibility and we have made our presentation to 3rd PRC twice.  JAO 2016 batch have got their posting and orders have been issued recently for making him eligible for voting power. Now efforts are being made for their regular postings.

Com. GS told that AIBSNLEA has requested BSNL Management to take immediate steps for conducting CPCs from SDE to DE, AO to CAO, JAO to AO, SDE © to EE ©, LDCE from JTO to nSDE and filing the appeal in the Hon’ble High Court of Punjab and Haryana as well as impaled in the SLP pending in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in the matter of Laxmi Narayan against the judgment of Hon’ble High Court of Punjab and Haryana as per the legal opinion given by the Solicitor General of India.  We have also requested to expedite the CPCs to fill up about 2000 vacant DE posts and about 900 CAO posts immediately since there is no stay order on promotion. The CPCs can be conducted by implementing SC/ST roster as per the availability of DoP&T guidelines and outcome of the Hon’ble Courts.

AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA is opposing MT Recruitment, DR DGM Recruitment and keeping one Executive in E3 scale for 10 years. AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA demands no lateral entry above JTO and JAO level since BSNL have talented Executives having B.Tech, M.Tech, MBA, ICWA, CA qualifications. These Executives are capable of leading the BSNL better then any outsider. AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA is committed for replacement of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 to JTO and SDE equivalent Executives and to remove the pay loss of JTOs 2007 and 2008 batches by achieving Rs 22820 pay scale instead of 19020 in the pre-revised pay scale as already achieved by AIBSNLEA for JTO 2005 and JAO 2010 batch and also ROTA Quota to LDCE by amendment of SDE RR etc.

AIBSNLEA is always at the forefront during agitation calls given by Forum of BSNL Unions and Associationsto oppose the wrong policies of the Government. On Subsidiary Tower Company issue he informed that AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA has opposed it.  There is a strike on 15thDecember 2016 on this issue.  54% reduction in loss of BSNL has been occurred during this year.  Revenue flow of BSNL is increasing gradually and in last financial year it was Rs. 31,000 Crores.  Com. GS discussed in detail the efforts being taken continuously for resolving the issues by both the associations i.e. AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA. He said that AIBSNLEA is concerned with Executives interests as well as equally concerned with the viability of BSNL and that is why AIBSNLEA always pursued DOT on the issues like protest against SAM Pitroda Committee recommendation, VRS to one Lakh employees, Unbundling of Copper Conductor, Refund of BWA Spectrum, payment of rural deficit, 30% disinvestment in BSNL etc. He invited the attention of all the  members to cast their vote in favour of AIBSNLEA on 7th December 2016 at  Sl . No.1. He thanked AIGETOA for their unconditional support and assured all DR fraternity that AIBSNLEA is always committed for the betterment of BSNL Direct recruits.

(2) We requested CMD BSNL to use his good office to get cleared the BSNL's proposal on replacement of E1A to E2 & E2A to E3 pay scales from DoT. We also expressed our concern against the negative attitude of Addl. Secy. on BSNL's proposal. CMD assured to discuss the matter with Secy(T), DoT.

(3) We expressed our concern on delay in the approval of SDE RR by BSNL Board despite instructions of Hon'ble Court for early clearance. We further requested CMD BSNL to intervene in the matter so that SDE RR is passed at the earliest. Once SDE RR is approved, the discontent between the LDCE passed & SDEs promoted from SCF quota shall be finished once for all  to ensure that Rota and Quota is implemented for all.

CS AITEEA Mr. Prashant Nag and Com. Girish Kumar apprised AIBSNLEA GS Shri Prahlad Rai regarding the long pending 2007 and 2008 pay parity issue. GS AIBSNLEA agreed that the 2007 and 2008 batches pay parity issue is genuine and said that it is taken up as it's agenda by AIBSNLEA GS. Also GS AIBSNLEA promised that he would personally pursue the case with management and requested the entire 2007 and 2008 batches to have belief in the United Forum. There is no better person than our beloved GS Rai sir to convince the management regarding the same.

 

GS AIBSNLEA reiterated that they have resolved the issue of JAO 2010 batch by constituting a committee at corporate level. And hence in the similar manner GS promised that he will put in all his efforts to resolve 2007 and 2008 batch pay parity issue by upward revision to E2 and it will be implemented with effect from 1.1.2007. Since the formation of our association, a lot of our important issues are resolved. We fought against the BSNL management. Our assured career progression is not being implemented due to pending non decision of ITS absorption. EPP was discussed in detail and Executive Promotion Policy was implemented in 2007 but still we are not satisfied. We tried for filling up of vacant posts by DPCs. Transparent transfer policy came into existence only by persuasion of AIBSNLEA. Scrapping of MT RR is our agenda. 12% superannuation benefits will also be got approved. Please believe us and we will not break your trust. Replacement of E1A to E2 & E2A to E3 for JTO and SDE equivalent executives is our demand.

 

GS AIGETOA also insisted that voting on neutral platform equals to not voting at all and also warned all the DR'S to be careful about the future as the vote is just going to be a waste. Superannuation benefit was asked 12%. Other Association says it is unrealistic demand. Don't waste your votes please as giving vote on any other platforms is equal to not voting.

And last year, it was Rs. 3800 crores.  So pay should be revised in 3rd PRC.  It should be extended to BSNL pensioner also.  This is our responsibility and we have made our presentation to PRC.  JAO 2016 batch have got their posting and orders have been issued today for making him eligible for voting power. Subsidiary Tower Company we opposed it.  There is a strike on 15thDecember 2016 on this issue.  54% loss of BSNL has been reduced during the last 4 years.  Revenue of BSNL is increasing gradually last year it was Rs. 31,000 Crores. Com. Rai discussed in detail the efforts being taken continuously for resolving the issues by both the associations i.e. AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA . He said that AIBSNLEA is concerned with Executives interests as well as equally concerned with the viability of BSNL and that?s why AIBSNLEA always pursued DOT on the issues like protest against SAM Pitroda Committee recommendation, VRS, Unbundling of Copper Conductor, Refund of BWA Spectrum, Request for ADC charges etc.He invited the attention of all the  members by advising not to waste their valuable votes by any means and appealed all the executives to cast their vote in favour of AIBSNLEA on 7th December 2016 at  Sl . No.1

 

Thereafter an open session was organized in which Com. GS Prahlad Rai, Com. AGS, AIGETOA  Wasi Ahmad & Com. OS(N) Devesh Verma replied all the queries of participants to their full satisfaction.

29.11.2016:   A Report on the GB meeting on Election campaign of UF of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA at RTTC Auditorum Bhubaneswar on 27.11.2016

 

A Grand Joint Election Campaign meeting of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA of Odisha was held on 27.11.2016 at RTTC Auditorium Bhubaneswar. Members of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA across the length and breadth of Odisha had attended the meeting with enthusiasm.

 Sri Sarat Chandra Pradhan, Circle President-AIBSNLEA chaired the meeting and delivered the welcome speech. He also focused upon the cause of convening the meeting and emphasized upon the importance of referendum process so far as viability of BSNL and protection of common interest of the interest of BSNL executives are concerned.

 

Sri Dhiren Kumar Parida, Circle Secretary, AIGETOA in his speech mentioned that AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA can only resolve all the pending cadre issues related to the DR executives. He recalled how the support of the DR executives of Odisha are turning in favour of AIBSNLEA and assured the gathering that AIBSNLEA will gain 70% of the total votes in Odisha.

    

Comrade Benudhar Mishra , Circle Secretary AIBSNLEA Odisha emphasized that wining of AIBSNLEA is the need of the hour. AIBSNLEA?s win is required for wellbeing of BSNL executives of all fraternities as well as for the viability of BSNL. He pointed out that AIBSNLEA GS Comrade Prahallad Rai is the greatest leader in the history of DOT and BSNL. He has been an iconic leader on whom all the executives of BSNL have deep faith. Sri Mishra praised the way in which Sri Ravi Shil Verma is leading the young and meritorious direct recruit executives in the country. Sri Mishra also praised the hard works rendered by Comrade Dhiren Parida , CS-AIGETOA and Sri Ashok Acharya , Joint Secretary, AIGETOA. Sri Mishra assured the house that AIBSNLEA shall obtain majority in the membership verification on 07.12.2016.

 

Sri S.K.Jena, Advisor, CHQ AIBSNLEA appreciated the achievement of AIBSNLEA in resolving a number of cadre issues to the satisfaction of various cadres of executives in BSNL.  He further added that AIBSNL always has shown concerned towards the issues of both the serving and retiring employees & that was the reason why the combination of Prahlad Rai, the symbol of experience and comrade Ravishil Verma is the symbol of energy has been accepted towards achieving the ultimate target in the interest of the executives.

 

Sri Ashok Acharya, Jt.Secy.(East), AIGETOA endorsed the thoughts of the previous speakers by mentioning there are two basic reasons why AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA have joined hands together. It is the well establishes, vast experience of comrade Prahlad Rai in presenting issues of 10 nos. of Associations for last 12 years successfully & the dynamism of comrade Ravishil Verma. The other reason why com.P.Rai is the most dependable leader because he has a magic stick through which he brings the management to his fold to get the work done.

 

It was comrade Dipak Sahu, AGS(East Zone), AIGETOA who is in his address discussed various cadre issues emphasizing upon the EPF issues mainly for all BSNL Recruits & Direct Recruits. The journey of AIGETOA, he added , started first with the fight against stopping MT issues & it was comrade Prahlad Rai, the only leader who supported the cause. So who wells can the more dependable than him? A person who always stands against the interest of the staffs or the person who has been resolving the cadre issues of all executives for the last 12 years? The answer is quite but   obvious. Comrade Prahlad Rai is the leader who can lead the brigade in the right direction.

 Com.P. Mukhapadhaya, Organising Secy.(East), AIBSNLEA requested the house to ensure 100% polling on 7th December 2016 & to motivate still undecided members through personal approach to vote in favour of AIBSNLEA. He also inspired the members by saying winning or loosing in a election although matters but that is not all, because AIBSNLEA always believes in doing work and it will continue the work untiringly, out come of election may come, whatever.Further he encouraged the whole house by slogan of the time ? YAAD RAKHO SAAT NOVEMBER, AIBSNLEA PAHELA NUMBER?

 

Then it was the turn of one of the two star campaigners, the persons 2nd in command, comrade Ravishil Verma, General Secy., AIGETOA. In his address he with all modesty and sincerity why AIGETOA chose AIBSNLEA as an alliance. It was because AIBSNLEA has the dynamite named P.Rai, who has a reputation for running multicadered associtations with dignity, not under any compulsion. He also praised comrade P.Rai for his capability in resolving issues with the management in a best way possible. He added by saying how AIGETOA does not repent by choosing AIBSNLEA because that was the only the right decision . Both join hands with a strong conviction and confidence to fight until the issues of all the executives of both the associations are resolved. That could be only possible through Josh of AIGETOA and Hosh of AIBSNLEA. He also condemned the fact that BSNL management and SNEA speak the same language which will never go in the interest of entire executives. 3 P?s i.e. PAY, PROMOTION & PENSION was the brain child of AIGETOA. It was an important part of in his address. No stone will be left unturned until the goal is achieved. MT points was strongly condemned by him since it would be instrumental to stop the carrier progression of the existing executives. Recognition in the process, is not the matter of concerned because fight will continue with the precaution power of as long as the approach is right. And the cause is just.

 

Then it was the turn of the star & supreme commander, General Secy., AIBSNLEA, Com. Prahlad Rai,  He was the favorite of the crowed, whose speech was non-awaited by the members. He started his speech by appreciating ODISHA circle as a profit making circle right from the beginning.According to him Odisha Circle has always remained ahead in responding to any CHQ. Calls any time. He enlighted the house by keeping all the cadre issues already resolved, yet to be resolved one by one. He also pointed out how  efforts are being taken continuously for resolving the issues by both the associations i.e. AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA . He also expressed his concern regarding 2nd PRC which may affect BSNL executives the interest of BSNL executives, if the related issues are not settled in time and for that membership verification carries lot of importance. Only a positive force like united forum can put-forth its agenda before the management and the government once we win over a negative force like SNEA. Victory of  AIBSNLEA will be the victory of all BSNL executives & the victory of BSNL as well .He invited the attention of all the  members by advising not to waste their valuable votes by any means.

 

The meeting came to an end by vote of thanks offered by Com. Pradeep Mohanty, Circle President, AIGETOA & finally the national anthem.

29.11.2016:   A Report on the GB meeting on Election campaign of UF of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA at Telephone Bhavan Kolkata on 28.11.2016

Joint General Body meeting of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA was held at Telephone Bhawan Kolkata Telephones District at 2.00 pm on 28-11-2016 with huge gathering in a grand manner.  Around 750 executives attended. The meeting was presided over by Sri Tridip Chakraborty, President, AIBSNLEA/CTD.

 

CS WB AIBSNLEA Comrade B K Bhattacharjee, President, Comrade Swapan Bose, ACS Com Anirudhha Bose, Adv. CHQ Comrade Basudev Chakraborty, CS CTD AIGETOA Comrade Saikat Das, President Comrade Amit Das, AGS Comrade Deepak Sahoo and veteran leader Comrade Amit Gupta graced the occasion by their precious presence on the dais.

 

All the dignitaries on the dais were felicitated with flower bouquet in the very beginning. Comrade Prahlad Rai inaugurated the manifesto of UF/CTD on the stage.

 

Comrade Saikat Das, Com Deepak Sahoo addressed the gathering by expressing their full support to AIBSNLEA in the forthcoming EMV on 07-12-2016. They reiterated that on AIBSNLEA can fulfill and achieve the demands of BSNL recruited executives.

 

Comrade Prasun kr. Mukhopadhyay, CS CTD & OS (East) CHQ AIBSNLEA delivered his speech.  In his short deliberation he discussed about the role of our association and the joint movement with AIGETOA.  This is first time the membership verification of BSNL executive to be held on 7th December, 2016. Our election manifesto has been prepared and issued today in this historic meeting in Kolkata. He appealed all the members to cast their valuable vote in favour of our beloved association at Serial No. 1 in the ballot paper and become No. 1 executive association on 7th December 2016 to fight for scrapping of MTRR, DGM recruitment, replacement of the pay scale of E-1A to E-2, E-2A to E-3 & subsequent up gradation up to E-4 to E-7, implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy, 30 % superannuation benefit to BR executive.  He questioned about the performance of our sister association we have witnessed in the past.  Their only achievement is nothing but transfer & posting of their members, pro-management activities like favouring MTRR, DGM recruitment etc.  So defeat them to this association in this verification and save BSNL, save the interest of BSNL executive.  Because we have achieved 5 increment of JAO 2010 batch, we are fighting for JAO 2013 batch.  Above all, we are fighting for 3Ps. Pay, Promotion and Pension.  We have settled pension of 37a of BSNL pensioner.  If the AIBSNLEA becomes No.1 executive Association, the 3rd PRC and other cadre based issues to be settled.  AIBSNLEA will protect the right of all the executive.

 

Comrade Ravi  Shil Verma, GS AIGETOA in his address explained needs and effects of MOU between the two associations of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA.  He thanked veteran leader of AIBSNLEA Comrade Amit Gupta for his important role with the formation of MOU in the year 2013. He stressed the needs of struggle and fight jointly with BSNL management for all the issues of our executive irrespective of all executive cadres.  He stated that nearly 14,000 votes of AIGETOA will be in favour of AIBSNLEA along with 16,000 votes of AIBSNLEA resulting which we must win in this verification.  There is no such force who will counter these two associations.  He stated that other sister association is trying to keep away from AIBSNLEA.  According to him other association has a desire to bring the verification from management so that they can stop scrapping of MTRR and DGM recruitment, E-2 E-3 pay scale, stay 10 years in the same pay scale of E-3.  But now they are afraid that their dream will not be possible if AIGETOA join hands with AIBSNLEA.  The role of other sister association is always against future prospect of young executive.   Our demand is that there should be no lateral recruitment beyond JTO/JAO.  After pay and promotion then they want to block further in the issue of 30 % superannuation benefit to the BR executives.  If any achievement comes through hard fought battle of these two associations, they have shared of this as achievement of their own and hence they claimed that all credits to them.  Finally he appealed all the executives to cast their vote in favour of AIBSNLEA on 7th December 2016 in Sl . No.1

 

Our beloved GS Comrade Prahlad Rrai of AIBSNLEA during his elaborate deliberation discussed all the issues of BSNL executive.  He shared his experience of his long leadership for the struggles in past as well as in present.  We have started our campaign for the last 2 months all over the country to all the members for their overwhelming support to be No. 1 executive association in the forthcoming membership verification of BSNL executive.  AIBSNLEA   consisting of 10 executive association of BSNL Engg. AFSOA, Civil, Electrical, Architecture, PA/PS, Secretariat, AD(OL).  He apprised that at the time of formation of BSNL and after exercise of our absorption BSNL   management assured us that executive promotion policy shall implemented in BSNL.  But after a lot of struggles and negative approach with the then ITS officers it was achieved in 18-01-2007.  All our legitimate issues are not settled for 6-7 years.  But EPP is not achieved as per our aspiration.  Our demand is that there will be scope of promotion of absorbed Group ?B? executive upto the level of DGM after that according to the vacancy.  ITS Gr. A absorption is pending till date. 50 % post of group ?A? should be filled up from promotee officers. Earlier one JTO got only one promotion during his service and retired from that post.  Whereas, one ADET of JTS recruitment was having 7 promotions up to the level of Member of Telecom Commission.  After 2008, MTRR came again in 2016.  We are opposing MTRR and DGM recruitment.  After the verification, management is to sit with the majority executive association on this issue.  Our sister association is in favour of the above.  We are against any lateral entry above the rank of JTO and JAO.  3rd PRC is coming, before that our pay scale should be finalized this is our demand.  This is a heart burnt issue of our sister association when the BR executives will reach SDE to DE scale after completion of 15 years of service so they are trying to remain in the E-3 scale for the 10 years to be a hindrance to our young executives.  Our demand is that E1A to be replaced by E-2 and E2A to be replaced by E-3 and subsequently E-3 to E-4, E-5 to E-6, E-6 to E-7 before 3rd PRC.  He apprised us that he as Circle Secretary of JETA in Rajasthan circle and Shri Amit Gupta Circle Secretary of WB Circle were fighting for pay scale of JTO of Rs. 1640-2900 and achieved.  Now our sister association claimed that they have achieved it.  Under rule 37-A our pension is now secured but for our BR executives, their 30% superannuation is not settled yet.  Before the 3rd PRC 30 % superannuation is to be settled and this should be given effect from 1-1-2007.  2005, 2010 batch pay anomaly case has been settled. 2007 batch JTOs should be given pay scale of Rs. 22,280/- and their pay scale should be revised.  E-1+5 increments to JAO 2013, PA cadre, SDERR, MT Quota diversion to CAO waiting for board approval.  All other HR issues lying with BSNL management should be settled before December, 2016.  SDE LDCE result postings will be issued after maintaining SC/ST roster.  2000 SDE to DE and 800 AO to CAO DPC is under process.  2700 JTO to SDE, JAO to AO, SDE to EE Civil/Electrical is under process.  PPS post has been created. AD (OL) restructuring approval is pending in DoT.  25% Sr. Hindi Translator to be upgraded to JTO scale.  GSM with GPRS data facility, mobile handset and 525 plan have been provided. Now their further improvement is under active consideration. In the 3rd PRC BSNL should be considered as a Schedule ?A? company.  BSNL is the only telecom sector to provide service in remote area of Uttaranchal, Jammu & Kashmir.  BSNL has earned operating profit for the last consecutive financial years. And last year, it was Rs. 3800 crores.  So pay should be revised in 3rd PRC.  It should be extended BSNL pensioner also.  This is our responsibility and we have made our presentation to PRC.  JAO 2016 batch have got their posting and they are eligible for voting power.  Against the wrong policies of BSNL and calling of any agitational programme called by forum, AIBSNLEA always in the forefront.  VRS we have opposed it.  65% market share of BSNL broadband service is at present.  Rural deficit charges given to BSNL, pension contribution should be on the actual basic pay instead of maximum of pay scale.  Subsidiary Tower Company we opposed it.  There is a strike on 15th December 2016 on this issue.  54% loss of BSNL has been reduced during the last 4 years.  Revenue of BSNL is increasing gradually last year it was Rs. 31,000 Crores.  Now we are not a sick company. In the membership verification we must finish at No. 1. 

Lastly he appealed all the executives of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA to cast their vote in favour of AIBSNLEA and get the AIBSNLEA No.1 to protect the interest of all the executives.  Kolkata is ideal of trade union movement.  Again he appealed all the executives to ensure their votes on 7th of December in favor of AIBSNLEA in Sl. No.1

 

The meeting ended with slogan shouting & expressing our faith in UF and win in the EMV.

AIBSNLEA का पहला नंबर

Misleading information on the website of one Association

An Association has recently in a glorified tale on their website has mentioned that whatever good has happened, it?s because of them and whatever bad has happened , it?s because of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA. The mighty association becomes very powerful when something good happens and becomes helpless if something does not happen.

 

AIBSNLEA was formed in 2004, perhaps that fact was forgotten by the friendly association. The fact is that the negotiated settlement was being done by the individual officers of DoT and their great leader (the Chairman) was at the forefront at that time. It?s a good thing that they have accepted that E1A and E2A happened because of them. Irony is that they are claiming credit for the greatest sin that have committed by agreeing to the intermediate pay scales for the reasons best known to them while at the same time E2 scales were given by MTNL for JTO and E3 for SDEs. Their sin has degraded the cadre forever and instead of being ashamed, they are trying to glorify this treacherous act.

 

When DPE rejected intermediate pay scales, Khan Committee recommended the replacement of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3. Again the sinister design of the sister association came into the picture and they tried to en-cash the situation by trying to stagnate the young executives in E3 scale for 10 years. The fact remains that when agitation program was launched by AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA, the saviour association tried its level best to sabotage the agitation program with hand in gloves with management as if the agitation call was given against them. Whatever, we have written on our website is true and the previous updates on their website will tell the true story. We don?t have anything to comment on that. They have even claimed credit for the cascading effect.

 

We once again emphasize that United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA is for replacement of initial two scales and giving the promotions as per EPP in every five years. We have accordingly suggested for merging Sr. SDE scales and SDE scales which would have entailed the youngsters to reach the E4 scale in 10 years of service instead of 15 years. This would have given a great boost in their careers also but that was not digestible to the saviour association as according to them, which would have resulted in heart burn for their members. Assured time bound Promotions upto E7 level would have ended the stagnation in E6 level also. We also offered that at least agree for changing the initial two scales and dealing with the anomalies later on but that was also not acceptable to them. The only thing that was acceptable was keeping an executive in 10 years in E3 and we could not have allowed such injustice with our youngsters. Their adamant attitude was the reason for BSNL sending the proposal of upgrading all scales. Those who are trying to wash away their hands were the persons actually responsible for this cascading proposal. The dates which they are referring for us in their website are merely our updates on BSNL?s proposal.

 

Even on CPSU, their stand is more of carrying forward the agenda of management then to get promotions. They say that Khan Committee report will become invalid if the scales of SDE and Sr.SDE scales are merged. If they would have slightest knowledge on this important issue, they should never would have told so. In CPSU, scales are important, not the designation associated with them. What would have stopped us from reaching the scale of E7 for all executives? They say that they are happy with one promotion while we say that the promotion upto AGM level should not be limited with number of Posts. They try to put forward the management?s agenda of capping the number of posts at AGM Level. They say MT/DGM recruitment should happen, we ask for scrapping of these RRs as we feel the blood of executives of BSNL are fresh enough to handle these middle management. While we want to create a CPSU hierarchy, where each and every executive of BSNL sees a well defined path to reach upto the level of CMD. While we want our youngsters to not face the same fate which we have faced in DoT and then in BSNL, they want to give those youngsters the same Fate accompli of waiting Fifteen - Fifteen years for one promotion.

 

We are interested in getting SDE RRs passed as soon as possible so that the problem of seniority between LDCE passed SDEs and DPC promoted SDEs become sorted for ever, they want these RRs to be delayed as much as possible for the reasons best known to them.

 

They even now are advocating for conducting MT exam and are equating it with LDCE. We fail to understand, why they are trying to make fool of the executives as if they don?t know the difference between Lateral Recruitment and Promotion. They are trying to toe the management agenda; they are trying to befool the executives by projecting MT similar to LDCE. We would like to inform them that they should study HR and should understand that MT recruitment means creation of an altogether different cadre with different service conditions, different promotional avenues. Those calling it a fast track mechanism are nothing but making a fool of the entire executive fraternity. They agree, accept and state that there is huge talent pool available in BSNL but still they want middle management through Parachute Landing. When they say that they want to select a few for promotions, they are clearly emphasizing that maximum of the executives in BSNL are not fit for promotions for AGM level posts and beyond. All they want is a creation of a new cadre with handful of exclusive talent forgetting about others who have rendered their services in organization from almost 5 to 20 years. Their agenda is quite clear. The way they have justified DGM recruitment, makes everything crystal clear. They want to bring back the same DoT legacy in BSNL where the group B officers were forced to retire after getting adhoc DE/CAO/EE level. They have become the mouth piece of their masters.. calling the blood of executives as not fresh...trying to create a class within class...advocating for  DGM recruitment and calling them who challenged this as Hypocrite.. It is very clear what they have in store for the whole executive Fraternity.

 

As far as Hypocrisy is concerned, we would like to know from them what is Hypocrisy...asking for 30 Percent Superannuation Benefit.. and keeping 6 Percent demand in their manifesto. We would like to inform them that 18 plus six comes to 24 and not 30.  For  30 Percent Superannuation Benefit, you have to ask for 12 Percent. But how you can ask for 12 Percent...You have already called that demand unrealistic. You say CMD BSNL agreed for 4 Percent...but papers say some thing else...out of your imagination you can say anything.....you say you were not present in the meeting...but there was a call for every body in the meeting... General Secretary AIBSNLEA was also not in the station on that day but our AGS hq attended the meeting. AGS and President AIGETOA attended the meeting. President NFTE also attended the meeting. Those who had care for the issue attended the meeting. But perhaps you were busy and least bothered to send some body else to attend the meeting or perhaps you were aware what is going to happen and wanted to wash your hands away from it...That meeting paved the way for creation of Superannuation Trust for BSNL recruits.. That meeting Paved the way for revision of quantum of Superannuation Contribution after actuarial analysis...that meeting paved the way for revision in date of implementation ...and it is that meeting that Management is agreeing for increasing the quantum now...but how does that matter to you...all you are interested in singing the song that CMD agreed for 6 Percent...what you did for this 6 percent till date...except for singing this song...

 

You say that we are playing in connivance with management... Truth is known to everybody... we have never pursued for MV...and in reply given in a court, management has clearly stated that they want this MV because they want to take decisions in important issues like Organisational Restructuring, Rationalisation of number of posts, recruitment of Management Cadre etc. The only two parties pressing for this MV were the saviours and the BSNL Management...now that purpose of MV is clear, we leave it for the executives to decide...who is playing connivance with Management... We request executives to analyse and decide on this..

 

Their stand vis-a-vis our stand on the issues highlighted in the website:

So called Saviours

AIBSNLEA

10 years in E3 scale and promotions from E3 to E3.. No commitment on Pay Parity

5 years in E3 scale and merging of Sr. SDE and SDE scales resulting in promotions upto E7 level for all...Firm commitment for Pay Parity and extending 22820/- as initial basic.

MT and DGM recruitment in BSNL

No lateral recruitment above JTO/JAO level

Happy with CPSU Hierarchy with limit of Posts at AGM level

CPSU hierarchy as per Khan Committee with no limit on posts upto AGM

Happy with one promotion

defined path to reach the higher posts of GM, CGM, Director, CMD

6 Percent Superannuation Fund Contribution and 12 Percent unrealistic

12 Percent Superannuation Fund Contribution and we feel that is realistic and rightful due

Now it is very clear, who is website association....doing wrongs and glorifying the wrongs...God save the so called SAVIOURS...

26.11.2016:   A report on the General Body meeting of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA at Patna on 24.11.2016:

A historic General Body Meet of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA was held on 24th Nov?2016 on the land of Patliputra, Patna (Bihar). The joint meeting was organized in the Campus of Sanchar Parisar, Budh Marg Patna witnessed a huge gathering of more than 450 Executives (50% strength of the Circle). The meeting was attended and addressed by the Central and Circle leadership of both the associations. Sri Prahlad Rai [GS-AIBSNLEA], Sri Ravi Shil Verma [GS-AIGETOA], Sri Prussuna Mukhh Upadhya [OS-AIBSNLEA], Sri Krishna Kumar [CS-AIBSNLEA Bihar], Sri Wasi Ahmad [CS-AIGETOA Bihar], Sri J. P. Sharma [CWC-AIBSNLEA], Sri Mukesh Kumar [OS-AIGETOA CHQ], Sri Prashant Gaurav [Adv-AIGETOA CHQ], Sri Amit Kumar [CP-AIGETOA Bihar] and others attended the meeting and addressed the gathering on current scenario of Pay, Pension & Promotion of executives and ongoing Membership Verification in BSNL.

 

Sri Prahlad Rai touched down the lane of memory from history of struggle for the welfare of the executives as well as department to the creation of AIBSNLEA by amalgamation of TEN EXECUTIVES ASSOCIATIONS in 2004. He also enlightened the mass about the circumstances of coming together of two major associations i.e. AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA to ensure the rights of executives to be extended without delay by the BSNL Management and its commitment to the welfare and a real CPSU culture in the department in terms of 3Ps. Sri Prahlad Rai informed the gathering about the recent development of HR fronts for all cadre i.e. from Telecom, Finance, Civil, Elect, Arch, PA/PS, RBA and others.

 

Sri Prahlad Rai clarified his stand on Standard Pay Scale that the AIBSNLEA is fighting for replacement of E1A/E2A by E2/E3 for JTO/SDE equivalent cadre respectively. He clarified that after the provision of E3 to SDE, the non-functional post Senior SDE (presently at E3) should be abolished to protect the change of scale for each executive after five years as per existing EPP. By implementing this policy, we can get standard pay scale of E2/E3 for JTO/SDE equivalent with five time bound financial upgradation (as assured in absorption policy) without keeping an executive for 10 years in a single grade. It will also remove the concept of cascading which is seen as a stumbling block in settling the standard pay scale issue.

 

He also clearly emphasized that AIBSNLEA is completely against any lateral entry above to JTO/JAO and wants to ensure the Career Progression of internal Executives to the highest level in BSNL. He also told the gathering that the complete 30% Superannuation Benefits is a due of all BSNL Recruited Executives and the department cannot shy away from its due responsibility on the name of financial crunch. This facility will have to be extended in all cases.

 

SRI PRAHLAD RAI [GS-AIBSNLEA] APPEALED TO ALL EXECUTVES TO VOTE EN-MASS @ BALLOT NO-1 TO MAKE THE EXISTING NUMBER ONE ASSOCIATION i.e. AIBSNLEA AS MAJORITY ASSOCIATION TO SAFEGUARD THE INTEREST OF ALL EXECUTIVES WITHOUT DISCRIMINATION IN BSNL AS WELL AS ENSURE GROWTH OF THE BSNL.

  

Sri Ravi Shil Verma [GS-AIGETOA] addressed the gathering about the three years journey with AIBSNLEA under the MoU signed between these two associations not for MV but for the fight and resolution of the issues of the executives. This joint fought one after another battle for the rights and due of the executive fraternity and also got some success. The examples of this joint fight of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA resulted in the formation of Khan Committee and its positive recommendation for Standard Pay Scale for JTO/SDE equivalent and broader roadmap for career progression in terms CPSU Cadre Hierarchy Proposal. The approval of CMD BSNL for replacement of E1A/E2A by E2/E3 for JTO/SDE equivalent and sending the same to DoT for its final nod. The approval of Superannuation Benefits  by the BSNL and then DoT for BSNL Recruited Employees, although it is quite low but he clearly told that the quantum will be increased to 12% and date of effect will be 01-01-2007 once the policy gets into shape by next month. He also told in the meeting that the combination of AIBSANLEA & AIGETOA forced the management to cancel the Notification of MT, which was a direct blow to our career progression. We also ensured for the management to draft a CPSU Proposal and share for finalization. Although the draft of management was not in line with our discussion and we have given our dissent note and new proposal. There are a series of events which can?t be enumerated in little time but there is a complete synch both the associations.

 

But Ravi Shil ji told that many proposal like Implementation of Standard Pay Scale, Pay loss to the post 2007 Recruited JTO/JAO, MT/DGM Recruitment form External Market, CPSU Proposal for ensuring career progression of the executives up-to higher post of GM/CGM etc, enhancement in various facilities like Medical, LTC, Transport, TA/DA etc will be dealt with the Majority Association elected in the Membership Verification. We have seen previous membership verification for non-executives and the power of recognized unions to deal with the management. But still we believe that the selected Majority Association will have a say in the HR Policy of the BSNL. Hence while casting your vote; you should be very cautious as any vote against number one will be used against your interest. So we must come out en-mass to Vote for AIBSNLEA at No-1 in the upcoming Executives Membership of BSNL on 7th December?2016.

 

Sri Prussuna Mukhhopadhya [OS-AIBSNLEA], Sri Krishna Kumar CS-AIBSNLEA Bihar, Sri Wasi Ahmad CS-AIGETOA Bihar and other leaders also address the gathering and appealed all executives to make AIBSNLEA Majority Association in upcoming membership verification by giving your vote at No-1 in the Ballot Paper on 7th December?16. The assessment of ground realities in Bihar and across the country has shown that the AIBSNLEA @ No-1 is getting 60% of eligible votes in Bihar Circle and 50% of eligible votes in the whole BSNL.

 

WE APPEAL ALL EXECUTVES TO GIVE US A MINIMUM OF 60% OF ELIGIBLE VOTES IN THE COUNTRY TO STRONGLY FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS IN FRONT OF THE BSNL MANAGEMENT AFTER BECOMNG MAJORITY ASSOCIATION.

<<<Click here for the letter from SR Cell >>>>>>

A malicious campaign is being spread by that United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA is insisting on cascading effect.

 

In this regard, it is informed to all and sundry that United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA has insisted on replacement of non standard intermediate pay scales and merging of non-functional SR SDE scale with SDE scale. This would have enabled the smooth resolution of the whole issue as none of the groups would have been at loss. 

 

All we have opposed is keeping an executive in E3 scales for 10 years.

 

We have given two suggestions one was for merger of scale...and second was to replace two initial scales of E1A and E2A with E2 and E3 and give promotions as per EPP as and when due...This would have enabled all Executives getting promotions upto E7 Scale and resolution of the crucial pay issue for our young executives. This proposal would have benefited the youngsters as the Intermediate Pay Scales would have been replaced and would have also benefited in their career as they would have got E4 Scale after 10 years of service. The management was also quite supportive of the proposal, however our sister association categorically stated that this proposal is not acceptable to them. They were not even agreeable to changing the scales without disturbing EPP and dealing the anomalies later on as has been done in case of other anomalies related to 2nd PRC.

 

The only thing that was acceptable to them was replacement of scales with changes in EPP by keeping an executive in E3 scales for 10 years or replaces all scales outrightly...

 

CMD BSNL after sensing no breakthrough, directed Establishment Cell to process replacing all scales as he was also not convinced with idea of keeping an executive in a single scale for 10 years.

 

Friends those singing the tunes of calling themselves as messiahs of Youngsters should reply what heartburn they would have faced if our youngsters would have got E4 in 10 years...what loss they would have faced if the five promotions would have been given up to E7.

 

We have always worked with utmost sincerity on the issues. We never have heart burn if our youngsters are getting any benefit. It is a natural process that those coming late in department always benefit and if anybody is having heart burn for that then it is a serious question mark on working of the Association...

 

We request all the executives to not to be misguided by such malice campaigns..we request all to analyse the facts, action of the association, approach on the issues..and then decide...We still wonder who went to DoT and informed AST that E1A and E2A is an Scale decided by cabinet as a part of negotiated settlement and only cabinet can lower the scales..we are very much intrigued who went to AST and told him that replacing initial two scales will result into legal consequences...we still fail to understand that two stalwarts of the saviour association go to DoT and same day proposal is returned but the same gets mention on their website as positive development..after all what was cooking.. ... we leave it for the people to analyse and decide who is doing what...what is the fact...what is hidden..

 

For those who are singing the tunes of themselves being the saviours of youngsters and spreading this mischievous campaign..we would like to know what is their stand on the most importance issues of PPP...I.e. Pay Promotion and Pension...

 

Their stand on the issues itself tells how much they care about the executives..how much they care about the youngsters :

 

1. They want MT and DGMs from outside...They ask BSNL for infusion of fresh blood...as if the blood of youngsters present in BSNL is not fresh...They say MT RR need not be scrapped and is necessary for BSNL..

 

2. They say they are happy with one promotion...They say they are happy with limit of Posts on AGM level...They say they are happy with promotions upto Sr SDE...They feel OK with Parachute Management in the middle..

 

3. They say that Executive should stay in E3 scales for 10 years as not doing same may result into heartburn if SDE and Sr SDE scales are merged,  juniors may get promoted to E4 after ten years of service..They say asking for promotions upto E7 level is illogical ...They say E7 is forte  of some classified groups and can not be extended to ordinary executives of BSNL...for them Pay Loss is a non issue...

 

4. They are happy with 6% contribution in Superannuation Fund for DRs...They call demand of 12 percent as illogical and unrealistic demand...They say DRs will already have crores and crores of Rupees in their fund from EPF..

 

These are some of the excerpts from their stand on the most important issues of Executives I.e. PPP.......Pay Promotion and Pension..which is sufficient to explain what they have in store for executives..

 

Friends...we have always believed on doing work on ground..we have always believed in that actions speaks louder then the words...we work for the whole fraternity..we take care that none of the executives are at loss.

 

Approach of United Forum of AIBSNLA and AIGETOA on 3Ps-

 

1. No lateral recruitment above JTO/JAO/Equivalent ... We consider blood of youngsters from BSNL as fresh and competent enough to run BSNL.. We believe that none other than themselves should be in the forefront of the company ..we believe none other than the BSNL executives should occupy the top management posts of BSNL...NO MT..NO DGM is our demand..we want scrapping of MT RRs in totality..

 

2. We believe in promotions upto AGM level without any limit on posts..We believe that there should be a contemporary CPSU hierarchy policy in place...We want that each executive who joins BSNL should have a well defined path to reach the level of CMD...we believe that E7 ..E8...E9 is for an ordinary BSNL executive also and it does not belong to particular class...we support Khan Committee report...

 

3. We ask for replacement of E1A and E2A scales with E2 and E3 and we say that an executive should not be forced to remain in E3 scales for 10 years...We don,t have heartburn when our young executives get E4 five years earlier then us...We ask for merging Sr SDE and SDE scales..We consider Pay Loss as an important issue and we are working on that..we are trying for constitution of a committee in similar lines as being done in the case of departmental JAOs of 2010 batch...We are fighting for treating Departmental TTAs who were selected as JTOs in DR a quota as promotion..and accordingly for their pay fixation considering their appointment as Promotion..we would like to highlight that cascading is a non issue for us ..

 

4. We don't consider 12 percent contribution as unrealistic ... we consider 12 percent fully justified and as rightful due for all BSNL recruits...We consider implementation date for Superannuation fund as the date on which employee was recruited in BSNL right from the date 01.10.2000..we consider as implementation of Death Relief Scheme as the most important requirement..

 

5. Filling up of the vacant Gr. ?B?, STS & JAG level posts on regular basis till the time CPSE cadre hierarchy comes into existence..

 

6. Notional pay fixation for JTOs/SDEs (C/E/Arch/TF) Engg Wings & PA cadre, E1+5 increments to JAOs of 2013 & 2015 Batches/JTOs SRD & PA Cadre..

 

7. Modification in SDE RR..

 

8. Time Bound Promotions to DGMs (Promoted from Gr. B cadres) from E-5 to E-6 grade..

 

We have highlighted the stand of the so called saviour association on some most important issues vis-a-vis our stand. We request the whole BSNL executive Fraternity to think, introspect and decide..We request executive to Vote for NO MT recruitment..We request to Vote for No DGM recruitment..We request to Vote for merging of Sr SDE and SDE scales and not placing an executive in E3 scales for 10 years..We request to Vote for 30 Percent Superannuation Contribution..we request to vote for 12 Percent Superannuation contribution as realistic contribution..

  

Long Live United Forum..Long Live AIBSNLEA ..Long Live AIGETOA ..

Glimpses of the meeting follows

AIBSNLEA efforts to safeguard the  interest of BSNL Executives absorbed or BSNL recruited.

AIBSNLEA has tried to get resolve the contentious HR issues during the last 10-11 years wherein the EPP was notified on 18.1.2007 with the great and sincere efforts of  AIBSNLEA, because the then BSNL management with a indifferent attitude was not implementing the assured career progression to executives even after completion of 6-7 years after the formation of BSNL.  With the untiring efforts of AIBSNLEA the then Secy (T) Dr. J.S.Sarma interfered in the matter and high level committee headed by Sh. S.Bhave, Addl.Secy (T) was constituted.  AIBSNLEA provided the necessary feed back to the committee in favor of EPP and accordingly Sh. Bhave committee submitted its report which was finally discussed with AIBSNLEA in the formal meeting with the then Secy (T) Sh. D.S.Mathur on 10.1.2007 and thereafter with the approval of the BSNL Board this EPP was notified on 18.1.2007.  AIBSNLEA brought the kind intervention of then Secy (T) Dr. J.S.Sarma and  perks were granted to all executives w.e.f 1.1.2005.  GSM telephone connection with STD facility handset and GPRS DATA service were provided with the efforts of AIBSNLEA.  All the STS vacant posts of DEs/AOs/EEs(C/Ele/Arch/TF) were not being  filled up till 2006.  This issue was  brought to the notice of Secy (T) Dr. J.S.Sarma and with his kind intervention the direction was given to CMD BSNL, Dir (HR) to fill up 2375 DEs posts and all the vacant STS level posts of Accounts, (Civil/Elect/Arch/TF)  Engg wings where the absorption of Group A officers was completed.  With our continuous persuasion first time after the formation of BSNL 2375 DEs,361 CAOs and about 300 EEs(C/E/Arch/TF) promotion orders were issued on adhoc basis in the year 2006.

 

AIBSNLEA succeeded in getting notified BSNL MSRR-2009and the detailed discussions with BSNL Management and after BSNL MSRR notification the regularization of Adhoc STS (DEs,CAOs, EEs took place.  As soon as DEs/CAOs/EEs were regularly promoted.  AIBSNLEA tried for DGM promotions and first time in the year 2009, DGMs Engg, DGM(Fin) and SE (C/E/Arch/TF) were promoted on Adhoc basis.  On completion of 4 years of regular STS service, AIBSNLEA succeeded in getting  regular promotion order of DGMs.  It was a historical achievement to have regular DGMs promoted from Gr. B level executives.

 

AIBSNLEA also succeeded in getting implemented 2nd PRC report in BSNL with 30% fitment benefit being a schedule A and profit making PSU.  AIBSNLEA efforts only got released presidential directives on 27th Feb 2009 from DOT.  The DOT effort to grant 20% fitment benefit was strongly opposed by AIBSNLEA.  E-1+5  advance increments benefit could be achieved by AIBSNLEA through Sh. K.C.G.K Pillai committee and now the efforts are being made to get the same benefit to JAO-2013, 2015 batches, JTO (SRD) and PA cadre.

 

48 PPS Posts have  been created with all the CGMs in field units and 5 Sr. PPS posts in BSNL C.O. Restructuring  of AD (OL)  cadre proposal got approved from BSNL MC and now pending for approval of DOT.

 

With  the struggle of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA, BSNL has approved in its MC for replacement of E-1A by E2, E2-A by E3 of JTO and SDE equivalent executives in BSNL which is pending in DOT for clearance .To avoid stagnation in E3 grade for 10 years, BSNL has proposed to upgrade subsequent pay scales.  But the DOT administration is interested to lower the pay scales E1-A by E-1 and E2 A by E2 scales which cannot be tolerated.  Hence we have to keep ready for a strong and decisive struggle in BSNL to achieve E2 and E-3 IDA pay scales for JTO and SDE equivalent executives.  AIBSNLEA is committed to achieve standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTO and SDE equivalent executives in BSNL.

 

AIBSNLEA efforts yielded result in getting set-up Khan committee headed by the then ED (NB) Sh. M.A.Khan.  The Committee report on CPSU cadre hierarchy  is pending in Pers. cell of BSNL C.O. for consideration but the same is being delayed for implementation on the pretext of MT recruitment. AIBSNLEA is strongly opposing MT recruitment above JTO/JAO level also demanding DGM RR scrapping.  AIBSNLEA strongly feels that BSNL is having young and talented executives available having B Tech/M tech MBA, ICWA and CA qualifications and they  should reach to the rank of GM/CGMs and will be  eligible for BSNL Board of Directors/CMD interviews due to age profile.  Hence, AIBSNLEA will never allow recruitment of MT/DGMs above JTO/JAO level.

 

 AIBSNLEA demands 12% contribution  from BSNL towards 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees w.ef. 01.01.2007.    BSNL absorbed employees are covered with pension Rule 37A.  60-40 provision secretly introduced by Govt. has now been withdrawn with the  AIBSNLEA untiring efforts.  78.2% IDA pay fixation benefit has been granted to BSNL employees and BSNL pensioners. Stepping up of pay of seniors w.r.t their juniors under EPP . The manner AIBSNLEA in  concern for the  settlement of the HR issues, in the similar manner AIBSNLEA in concern towards viability of BSNL also.  Hence as and when an agitation  call is given by the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations the AIBSNLEA is always at the forefront  to  protest against the wrong policies of the Govt. and failure of the  BSNL Management in providing required materials to field Units.  With  our efforts only the 30% disinvestment of BSNL could be   wherein 20000 crs BSNL?s divested money was going out of the exchequer  of the Govt. VRS to one lakhs workers was opposed because BSNL never provided the road map to maintain the existing 34000 telephone Exchanges in the country.  Unbundling of copper conductor was also stopped  that is why  today BSNL?s  Broad Band market share is more than 65%  With our struggle only  Rs.6740/- crores BSNL spectrum charges were refunded to BSNL Rs.1500 Rural deficit charges for the FY 2011-12 was paid by DOT to  BSNL.  now the sanction of  Rs.1250 cr rural deficit charges has come from Govt.Efforts are being made to pay pension contribution on actual basic of BSNL employees instead of maximum of the pay.

 

Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations has served a notice to protect against the  fragmentation of BSNL in Tower subsidiary. 15th Dec 2016 one day  strike will be there to protest against the creation of Tower subsidiary.

 

In this manner AIBSNLEA is safeguarding  the interest of all the BSNL executives and to save BSNL.  AIBSNLEA have cordial relations with all the unions/Associations of BSNL. In view of the above all the BSNL executives are requested to vote and support to AIBSNLEA in the Executive Membership verification to save BSNL and its executives interest.

 

AIBSNLEA extends sincere gratitude and thanks to the CHQ of AIGETOA and their members for their  unqualified support to AIBSNLEA in the membership verification. AIBSNLEA  also reciprocate the same to AIGETOA and assure that after becoming No.1 executive Association, it  will take all the efforts for the settlement of DR executives pending issues on  top priority along with other  issues.

AIBSNLEA extends its sincere thanks and gratitude to the AIGETOA for extending the unqualified support to AIBSNLEA in the forthcoming Membership Verification.

1. Shri Anupam Srivastava, CMD BSNL regarding - Conducting CPCs for promotion and filling-up of the vacant SDEs/DEs/AGMs/AOs/CAOs posts considering SC/ST Roaster implementation as per the DoP&T guidelines. <<<Click here for letter>>>>>>  

18.11.2016:    Status of E1A & E2A replacement of pay scale by E2 & E3 scales: BSNL's proposal for the replacement of E1A & E2A by E2 & E3 respectively is pending at Internal Finance of DoT. It is understood that Member(F) proposed to take the presentation from BSNL on this issue but Addl. Secy(T) has suggested to give E1 & E2 pay scales to JTO & SDE equivalent executives. He is not agreeing   BSNL's proposal for replacement of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3. AST has wrongly mentioned that intermediatory  pay scales E1A and E2A were not approved by DoT, which is not correct. The fact remains, that E1A and E2A pay scales were duly approved by DoT and DPE. Hence, now E1A and E2A pay scales cannot be lowered to E1 and E2 pay scales as suggested by AST. Against this attitude of DoT Administration, we have to plan strong agitation to impress upon BSNL Management to get approved this proposal from DoT. Get ready for the struggle.

Status of HR Issues:

 

1. Implementation of Executives Promotion Policy in BSNL: AIBSNLEA untiring & persistent effort's yielded result in getting issued Executive Promotion Policy on 18.01.2007 and got implemented but still some issues remains un-resolved as under:-

 

A. Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy- Change of designations on each Time Bound upgradation on functional basis: BSNL Management constituted a Joint Committee Headed by Shri M.A. KHAN, ED(NB) to submit a report on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, E2-E3 Pay scale to JTO/SDE equivalent executives and First time bound promotions on completion of four years. The KHAN Committee submitted its recommendations on both the issues i.e. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and E2-E3 Pay scale to JTO/SDE equivalent executives in the month of Sept. 2015 but due to reluctance of the nodal units i.e. Pers. Cell to implement the KHAN Committee report it is still pending. Recently, the Pers. Cell has given a proposal on the CPSU Cadre hierarchy. The final discussions on the issue with the Associations are yet to take place. It is, therefore, requested to kindly give your valuable suggestion in writing for taking them with the Management.

 

B. Implementation of E-2, E-3 standard IDA Pay scales to JTO and SDE equivalent executives in BSNL: No intermediary scales have been permitted under DPE O.Ms. Dated 26.11.2008 and 02.04.2009. Generally, promotion has to be from one 'Grade' to next higher 'Grade' with it corresponding scale as per the promotion policy of respective CPSEs. A CPSE cannot have more than one pay scale in a grade (say DGM & GM in E8 pay scale) to promote its executives within the same grade'. Ignoring the DPE O.Ms. on implementation of 2nd PRC recommendation for standard pay scales E-2 & E-3 for JTO/SDE equivalent executives, BSNL Management is continuing efforts to implement E1A & E2A intermediate IDA pay scales in BSNL for JTO/SDE equivalent executives, which is not at all justified. In view of this, standard IDA pay scales E-2 & E-3 as recommended by 2nd PRC and KHAN Committee has to be implemented in BSNL for JTO and SDE equivalent executives to provide justice. DPE has again clarified not to allow intermediary pay scales in PSUs.

 

After United  Forum struggle in May-2016, the proposal for replacement of E1A by E2, E2A by E3 and subsequent scales upgradation has been approved by the Management Committee of BSNL Board and now pending for the approval of DoT.

 

C. Date of effect of Implementation of revised IDA Pay Scales for the Executives w.e.f. 1.10.2000: BSNL management has granted benefit of residency period w.e.f. 1.10.2000 to the Executives i.e. JTO/SDE (Civil/Electrical/Arch./TF) Engineering wings, CSSs, PAs/PSs, JAOs etc. for whom the RRs were notified after 1.10.2000 and accordingly the pay scales were upgraded. Whereas, as per Dr. Vinay Shahi's committee recommendations the upgraded scales for the above executives' should have been implemented w.e.f. 1.10.2000 on actual basis or notional basis.  BSNL Corporate Office has issued order of notional pay fixation for JAOs w.e.f. 01.10.2000, we are demanding similar benefit to other upgraded cadres also. The proposal moved by PGM(BW) is still pending with BSNL Management.

 

D. Time bound promotion from E-5 to E-6 to the DGMs promoted from Grp.'B' Executives:. The proposal for modification in BSNL MS RR 2009 for Time bound promotion from E-5 to E-6 to the DGMs promoted from Grp.'B' Executives has been cleared by the MC. However, it is still awaited for withdrawal from the agenda of BSNL Board.

 

E. One time placement of SDE to Sr. SDE: As per DOT agreement and commitment of BSNL at the time of absorption of Group 'B' officers in BSNL on 01.10.2000, the SDEs who completed 5 years of regular service would be provided one time placement in the Sr. SDE grade. A proposal to give relief to the stagnating SDEs for their placement in the Sr. SDEs grade through Cadre Review Concept, on the back drop of the demand of the Association to reduce the eligibility criteria from 12 years to 5 years (As approved by Telecom Commission in 1994) for placement in the existing scheme, was approved by DoT and discussed in the GoM. This was subsequently remitted to BSNL. It was assured by Hon'ble MOC & IT, in the meeting held on 22-10-2001 with the Association that BSNL has agreed to the proposal in principle and a board memo was under preparation. We further understand that the memo was also finalized, but was not placed in the BSNL Board meeting. The majority of TES Group 'B' officers has been absorbed in BSNL and the BSNL Executive Promotional Policy is implemented w.e.f. 01-10-2000, the issue needs to be settled favorably. BSNL Management is continuously replying that since this issue was not in the terms and reference of absorption of Gr. 'B' Officers in BSNL, now it cannot be considered after implementation of the Executive promotion policy. We have requested Director (HR) to re-examine the case in view of the feedback provided by our Association. 

 

F. Settlement of Pay anomaly cases wherein senior Executives are drawing less pay than their juniors: BSNL CO, Pers. Cell has filed SLP against Hon'ble High Court, Kerala judgment in The Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, wherein AIBSNLEA has been impleaded. Hon'ble Supreme Court of India has dismissed the SLP of BSNL. AIBSNLEA has made the representation to extend the similar benefit to all as granted by Hon'ble High Court Kerala. Pers. Cell of BSNL Corporate Office is examining the case.

 

G. Amendment in BSNL MSRRs allowing Diploma holders to the promotion of EE: As per these BSNLMS RRs, the existing JTOs/SDEs (C/E/Arch) Engineering wings having diploma qualification were not eligible to be promoted to the grade of Assistant General Manager EE/Arch. AIBSNLEA strongly protested against this discrimination and finally BSNL Management issued amendment on BSNLMS RRs allowing Diploma holder SDEs (C/E/Arch) to the post of EE as per 1994 DoT RRs. We have again pleaded to remove discrimination on the pretext of degree/diploma qualification to the promotion of EE from SDE (C/E/Arch) and parity with the JTO (T) / SDE (T). On our persuasion a committee comprising of GM(Pers.), PGM(BW)/(EW)/(Arch) was constituted to examine the issue. We submitted our views to the committee members. Now the committee has submitted its recommendations to the Management Committee which has cleared the proposal. The BSNL Board approval is still expected. It is understood that 50%-50% EE(C/E) posts will be shared by the Degree and Diploma holder SDEs(C/E). Meanwhile DoT allowed diploma holders with 10 years technical experience to be treated at par with degree holders for EE promotions which was also endorsed by BSNL but it was challenged by some degree holders in the court and stay order has been granted. The case is pending in Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi. We have further requested management to implement committee report to consider 50%-50% EE(C/E) posts shared by the Degree and Diploma holder SDEs(C/E).

 

2. 30%Superannuation benefits to directly recruited employees as per DPE guidelines: We requested CMD BSNL, Director (HR/EB) and ED (Finance) to resolve superannuation benefits to directly recruited employees as per DPE guidelines and BSNL should contribute 12% as Superannuation Benefits in respect of Direct Recruits to fulfill the limit of 30% contribution.The remuneration committee of BSNL Board recommended to start a superannuation benefit trust to directly recruited BSNL employees with a contribution of 3% initially and further it can be reviewed on the basis of financial health of the company. DoT issued the Presidential Directives in this regard and now, the BSNL Management is under process for creation of a trust and other formalities in this regard.

 

3. Management Trainees Recruitment Rule-2009: AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA's consistent effort yielded results in getting deferred MT Exam - 2015 but some executives associations and non - executives Unions are continuously making efforts for MT recruitment. Our considered opinion is that since the CPSU Cadre hierarchy for non - post based promotions up to JAG selection grade is under discussion in Committee, the MTRRs has no relevance.  The MT Examination notification has already been withdrawn. But, BSNL Management has to scrap the MTRRs.

 

4. DGM Recruitment: The qualified and experienced Executives in BSNL having 10 to 20 years of service should also get an opportunity to compete with others for the DGM posts by making appropriate, justified and rational changes in the eligibility conditions. This would mark the beginning of allowing BSNL to have a management structure of its own at DGM level which by virtue of age profile will be groomed into senior management in due course of time. This strategic move will not only meet the career growth of aspiring talented executives in BSNL but will immensely contribute towards growth and viability of BSNL. However, in the recently held DGM Recruitment it does not happen and the internal candidates however allowed writing the examination but their result is not declared treating them not-eligible.

 

6.CPCs to fill up the vacant JAG, STS Group 'A' & Group 'B' Grade posts in BSNL on adhoc/ Regular basis :

 

a. JTO (T) to SDE (T) CPC against seniority cum fitness quota (67%): The Court case regarding JTO to SDE promotions in the Hon'ble CAT Bench Chandigarh came for hearing on 31st March 2016 and dismissed. However, still there is a stay order granted by the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala on promotion from JTO to SDE.

LDCE from JTO (T) to SDE (T): BSNL conducted LDCE from JTO (T) to SDE (T) to fill-up the TES Gr.'B' LDCE quota vacancies of the year 2010-11but Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh granted stay order on declaration of result till the time the seniority quota promotion orders are issue. The Hon'ble CAT has now vacated the stay order and instructed the BSNL that the promotion orders as per the LDCE result can be issued subject to making suitable amendments in the SDE RR restricting reservations on promotions as per the judgment of Hon'ble Supreme Court of India.

After submission of the report by the Committee the case was posted for hearing on 18.04.2016 and thereafter being listed on every Tuesday.

Lal's case restoring their earlier position and shall not put any employee over and above the present petitioners on the basis of the seniority in the service in the entry year. While implementing the above judgment DoT/BSNL has re-casted the seniority of 45+20+9+4=78 (about) TES Gr. 'B' officers only whereas, thousands of TES Gr. 'B' officers are to be provided similar benefit. Now TES Gr. 'B' officers promotions to DE is being issued on the basis of two seniority lists i.e. one on rule-1966 and another on para rule-206 basis. It has caused serious anomaly and heart burn to the TES Gr. 'B' officers in BSNL. Regarding implementation of Rule-206 or Rule-1966, BSNL Management has filed SLP in the Hon'ble Supreme Court for clarification. Hon'ble Supreme Court has delivered the judgment on 21.01.2015 on TES Gr. 'B' seniority to re-casted on the basis of Rule ' 206 and one expert committee headed by Shri Rammurthy, Retd Judge of Hon'ble High Court with one member has been constituted to submit report within a period of six months to examine the repercussions on beneficiaries of RR ' 1966. After submission of the report by the Committee, the case was posted for hearing on 18.04.2016 and thereafter being listed on every Tuesday. But unfortunately, it could not be heard even for a single time due to paucity of the time.

Inspite of the said interim order BSNL issued promotion order for the posts of DGM to 172 DE/AGM out of 270 SDEs on 8.2.2012.  Contempt petition no. 403 of 2012 was filed by promote Sh. M. Shamugam for initiating contempt processing against contemnor CMD BSNL and other officials of BSNL. The said contempt petition no. 403 of 2012 was listed before the Hon'ble Supreme Court on 26.7.2013 and the Hon'ble Court issued show cause notices and directed for personal appearance of contemnors  CMD, BSNL, Director(HR) and AGM (Pers.) of BSNL. The Contempt Case was heard on 23rd Sept 2013 and disposed of but next date of hearing is yet to announced.

 

147 SDEs (LDCE Quota) retrospective seniority case:

AIBSNLEA's OA 2126/2009 in Principal Bench CAT, New Delhi reference mentioned in  the Operative portion of the judgment on 147 SDEs (LDCE Quota) retrospective seniority case:

 

'We have to remind ourselves, some more are waiting in the wings, watching the proceedings, to jump on at the appropriate time. We cannot, but, record our deep anguish and displeasure at such conduct. We say this, because, the matter has been raised in various Benches of the Central Administrative Tribunal in Chandigarh, Cuttack, Calcutta and the Principal Bench with varying results. We only notice the proceedings pending before the Principal Bench (Judicial I) Delhi of the Central Administrative Tribunal, in O.A 2126/2009 wherein all the 147 merit based candidates are stated to be parties. We have been taken through the order of the Principal Bench dated 21.9.2011 wherein the proceedings pending before the various Benches were noticed, while considering the application for reference to a larger Bench. The Principal Bench has referred to OA No.86/2009 which challenged the seniority of the 147 persons as also the stay order of this Court dated 18.2.2010. The Principal Bench in paragraph 11 held so:

 

Contention raised by the counsel for the respondents before us is that since two contradictory views have been expressed by different Benches of the Tribunal, namely, Ernakulum Bench and Chandigarh Bench, the matter should be referred to the Full Bench. We, however, of the opinion that even if the matter is referred to the Full Bench, no purpose would be served because ultimately this very issue is pending before the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala. Once the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala gives its view, it would be binding not only on the parties but also on the Tribunal unless, it is upset by the Hon'ble Supreme Court or by some other High Court in some other proceedings. At that time the matter can be finally resolved.'

 

BSNL filed an SLP in the Hon'ble Supreme Court along with other respondents. The last date of hearing was 18th April 2016 and thereafter being listed on every Tuesday. But unfortunately, it could not be heard even for a single time due to paucity of the time.

 

7. Restructuring of AD (OL) Cadre: The committee constituted under the Chairmanship of Addl. GM (Estt.) has submitted the report to the competent authority recommending to revise the pay scale of AD(OL). The Pers. Cell has received the clearance / comments of EF Cell and on that basis the revised proposal with matching saving concept is being processed to the competent authority for approval wherein the pay scales of AD(OL) will be at par with SDE/AO and 25% Sr. Hindi Translator posts are being upgraded equivalent to JTO cadre. After the approval of the competent authority in BSNL the case has been referred to DoT for ratification where it is being examined by the Estb Cell. Final orders will be taken after the concurrence of Finance Wing / DoT.

 

8. Regularization of offg. JTOs: The suggestion put forward by AIBSNLEA in the matter of regularization of the remaining officiating JTOs by a onetime personal upgradation, is the correct feasible and viable solution. On the basis of legal opinion BSNL Management decided to modify the JTO RR 2001 and accordingly a committee was constituted wherein AIBSNLEA submitted suggestions/views and finally committee submitted report to frame the new JTO-RR-2014. After the approval of BSNL Management Committee and BSNL Board, the regularization of the Offg JTOs started and now all the officiating JTOs have completed their Phase-II training and joined as regular JTO.

 

AIBSNLEA filed case in the Hon'ble Principal CAT Delhi for granting FR-22(1)a(i) pay fixation benefits to the Officiating JTOs and got favorable judgment which has been implemented partially in most of the circle.  That is over payment recovery has been stopped.  But, pay has been reduced as per the corporate office letter dated 22.12.2015.  AIBSNLEA pursuing for the extension of FR 22 (1)(a)(i) benefits to the officiating JTOs. 

 

9. Allowing to exercise option to Departmental JAOs on their promotion: The pay anomaly case of departmental JAO-2010 batch joined after 7th May 2010 was taken up by AIBSNLEA and got settled favorably.

 

10. E1+5 Increments benefit to JTO (SRD), JAOs 2013 batch and PAs: The BSNL Management Committee has cleared the proposal of E1+5 Increments benefit to JTO (SRD), JAOs 2013 batch and PAs which is still pending for BSNL Board approval.

 

11. Antedating of pay -  anomaly due to accrual of increment of Junior earlier than the senior after fixation of pay in revised pay scale implementation of 2nd PRC: We further requested to restore the original order dated 23.09.2009 wherein provision for ante-dating the increment of the senior to that of the junior was envisaged. Alternatively, management can think of any other solution that will address the issue of anomaly wherein the junior does not draw more pay than the senior and also the senior does not face any drop in his basic pay which he/she will be drawing by virtue of the 3% annual increment provided in the rule. The Committee constituted to examine the case has not recommended changing the present order. We will still continue to pursue the case till its resolution to our satisfaction.

 

12. Implementation of DPE order for payment of 78.2% IDA fitment benefit w.e.f. 01.01.2007 in BSNL Pensioners: DoT has issued Presidential Directives and orders for implementation of 78.2% IDA pay fixation for existing BSNL employees on 10.06.2013. Similarly now, DoT has also issued Presidential Directives and orders for implementation of 78.2% IDA pay fixation for BSNL Pensioners also.

 

13. Payment of pension contribution of the IDA pay scales: We requested to BSNL Management to take up the matter with DoP&T/DoT for modification in payment of pension contribution from highest of IDA pay scale to the actual basic pay from BSNL. As the case was referred to DPP&W and DOP&T by DoT and now DoT vide letter no. 7-45/2008/TA-I/409-433 dated 01.03.2012 submitted that Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) has not concurred the above proposal. Hence the Pension contribution in respect of absorbed BSNL employees are to be recovered as per the previous methodology as stipulated vide DoT letter no. 7-45/2008/TA-I/409-433 dated 25.02.2010.

 

All the Circle Secretaries presented the activities already taken in connection with the membership verifications, further proposed activities for the remaining period, membership strength, anticipated votes in the membership verification for AIBSNEA, support and activities of AIGETOA, strength of AIBSNLEA and weakness of AIBSNLEA, wherein we have to concentrate more, weakness of other participant associations, etc. with various suggestions
