12.04.2019:  Cabinet Note on Revival of BSNL-

GS, President met concern officers of DOT and found that DOT has sent Cabinet Note on Revival of BSNL to consider three points (a) 4G spectrum allocation to BSNL (b) monitisation of BSNL land and(c) VRS to 54000 employees on Gujarat model.

The VRS has been recommended of 50 years above age employees on the existing pay only. 3rd PRC pay fixation in VRS is not under consideration.

The cabinet meeting is expected to be held on 15-4-2019.

5% incentive on ex- grasia is also recommended.

30% income tax deduction on ex-grasia will be there as "profits in lieu of salary" under section 17(3) of the Income Tax Act and the Employer would be liable to deduct tax on the same under section 192 of the I T Act.

The employees who opts VRS will also be loosing their increments of their left out service which will affect their pension for whole life.

In case 3rd PRC is implemented after VRS and on Revival of BSNL for the remaining employees, there pay may be revised notionally from a later date as happened in the case of 78.2% fitment order on BSNL pensioners & 73% order for MTNL, which will benefit them in terms of pension and pensionary benefits. But the employees taking VRS may not get the benefit.

The ex-grasia amount will be paid form amount of BSNLs land monitisation no funds from Govt.

Without having any roadmap for the operation and mtce of BSNL infrastructure may harm the quality of service and will further put BSNL into loss. The MTNL example is there where the VRS has been imposed twice but couldn't revive MTNL rather put in heavy loss. We feel that Govt should allow monitisation of BSNL land and the funds collected through this should be utilised for BSNL Operation and maintenance instead of imposing VRS. During next 3-years about 50000 employees will retire on their superannuation.

Thus Govt should drop VRS from revival plan of BSNL. VRS is neither beneficial to the employees nor to the BSNL.

11.04.2019:   GS writes to The Director (HR), BSNL Board regarding request for Extension in joining time as DE (Telecom) on promotion - Case of Shri R.C. Gupta, SDE HR No. 198806397 Rajasthan Telecom Circle <<<Click here for letter>>>
10.04.2019:    Why AIBSNLEA is opposing VRS?

Dear Comrades,

You are aware that DoT, under the instructions of PMO, has suddenly decided to roll out VRS Plan for BSNL/MTNL employees. BSNL Management has been assured that there will be no dearth the money to give effect to VRS proposal. Almost 54000 existing employees of BSNL are supposed to go out the roll of the BSNL on implementation of this VRS. This is done under the pretext of “Revival of BSNL/MTNL”.

You are also aware that all BSNL Unions and Associations barring a few,  have  decided collectively to oppose this move of the Government and  AIBSNLEA  is a party to this and accordingly Notice has been issued to the DoT/BSNL to hold protest demonstration on  12th April 2019.

The question is why have we taken such decision? Does it mean, we as Associations and Unions of BSNL do not have any concern for revival of BSNL from the ongoing crisis? Or, is it that we are indifferent about the interests of the individual members?  It is to everybody’s knowledge that the Unions and Associations of BSNL are very responsible Trade Union organizations and interest of BSNL is prime in their minds. For last couple of years the Unions and Associations have been constantly fighting for uplift of BSNL in the arena of cut throat competition. We have resisted every moves by the authority that be to inflict harm to BSNL directly or indirectly. Years before we have demanded to roll out 4G in BSNL to make it more competition fit. Other demands having financial implications e.g. payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum of pay scale have been demanded and pressed for by us. At the same time we have opposed the move of VRS even earlier. Why?

Association is aware that there may be individual members who, out of their own unique situation or personal financial equation may feel that VRS is up to his or her interest. AIBSNLEA is sensitive to the interests of individual members.

But we must understand that the issue like VRS at this crucial juncture cannot and should not be viewed through a narrow prism of individual gain or loss. We, the office-bearers at various level must try to weigh it on broader perspective. BSNL should stay healthy. There are employees who have long service life left. They should not be sacrificed for short term gain.

Our Association is not opposed to VRS par se. We are aware that in PSU systems, VRS is an accepted proposition. We are also aware that in some organizations VRS is implemented to the advantage of the organizations and the employees have been benefited as well. It is a win win situation there.   

In these organizations where VRS is successfully implemented, the entire road map is carefully chalked out on long drawn perspective. VRS is planned 2-3 years before. The targeted employees are identified carefully, mapping the need of the field and the action for suitable replacement is initiated well in advance. So that there is no shortage of man power.

The instant VRS proposal is brought in a hurry and it is apparent that actual purpose behind it is not the revival of BSNL but something else. Just considered the situation how and when such proposal is being hurriedly push through.

 A few weeks/months before unions and associations were demanding some important issues related to well-being of BSNL, even DOT / BSNL precipitated an agitation in BSNL . DOT and Ministry were not in a mood to consider any of such demand. Even at the instructions of the higher-ups payment of the salary of employees was stalled. Now when the entire country press into election mode and Model Code of Conduct is affected. Suddenly all this proposals were brought in the hasty move. BSNL Unions and Associations and other stake holders of BSNL have never been taken in to confidence or even consulted before taking such hasty decision. What is the reason?

We are sure this may be anything other than in the interest of BSNL. By such move they want to harm BSNL and make it in a retrograde situation in the competitive scenario. Privatization may also be hidden agenda.                                                                                      

On the contrary, consider the case of MTNL where VRS has been implemented twice so far. But the net result is that MTNL became weaker and weaker at this. Now when DOT is proposing VRS in MTNL for the third time to reduce 10000 employees, MTNL is having at present 22000 employees and already experiencing acute shortage of working hands in the field units. The revenue hits at the lowest bottom. The strength of employees has been reduced   drastically but so is the customer base and revenue earning. None in DOT/Govt is interested to look at it. It is as if, reducing the employees is their ultimate objective and not revival of MTNL. One can easily understand what is going to happen in MTNL in coming few days.

For BSNL, VRS is being thought of only from one angle. Let the strength of the employees be reduced so that present wage bill is reduced. But there is no consideration about the resultant impact in the field units. We are certain that minimizing the working hands by applying mindless VRS without having any regard to its immediate retrograde impact in the field, cannot serve any meaningful purpose in the way of reviving of BSNL. It will go in MTNL way. One VRS will follow another VRS but crisis will continue. Unmindful reduction of staff will lead to a situation where offloading of day to day maintenance work will be assigned to the petty contractors. Cost will be enhanced but efficiency will be reduced resulting into steady loss of customers and revenue. We cannot have opportunistic approach on such a vital issue which will affect the BSNL and its employees.

The representatives of the AUAB pointed out that the wage cut, for participation in the 3 day strike, has been done based on wrong calculation. That is, the three day wages has been arrived, by taking 28 days as a month’s salary. Instead, a month’s salary should be calculated as 30 days. As a result, more money has been deducted from the salary of the employees. Further, three days wage cut should be calculated on basic pay and DA only. But in many places, this calculation has been done wrongly. The CMD BSNL and Director (HR) assured to do the needful on this.

An open session was held during the First Circle Executive Committee meeting of the AIBSNLEA Maharashtra Circle on 22.03.2019 at 11.30 hours in the Digambar Jain Auditorium, Kolhapur.

Hon'ble Member of Parliament Shri Yuvaraj Sambhijiraje Chatrapati was the Chief Guest.  Com. Prahlad Rai, GS AIBSNLEA CHQ, Com. K.P. Nair, AGS (GD), Com. C.M. Saste, OS(W), CHQ,  Shri V G Patil, DGM (CFA), Kolhapur were present besides  Circle Secretary Com. A G Joshi, Circle President Com Rajesh Parulekar, Circle Financial Secretary Com. Kokate.

All the members on the dias were welcomed and felicitated.

District level Leaders of  SNEA, BSNLEU, NFTE, SEWA, FNTO and office bearers of retired association were also present, felicitated and addressed the gathering.

Com. A G Joshi, Circle Secretary  welcomed one and all and briefed about the circumstances under which BSNL is passing through.   He urged one and all to be united in the crucial time and work hard to improve the financial position of the BSNL and also to support the CHQ of AUAB in fulfilling the proposed actions of AUAB for not only improving the BSNL financial condition also in order to achieve all the demands of the workers.  He extended all the support of entire Maharashtra Circle to GS AIBSNLEA and requested  to go ahead with the activities  He also requested Hon. M.P. Shri Yuvaraj Sambhijiraje Chatrapati  ji to support BSNL for its revival.

Com. Prahlad Rai, GS AIBSNLEA briefed about the present financial condition of the BSNL, reason and circumstances led to the present situation. Com. Prahlad Rai in his address mentioned that at the time of formation of BSNL 3.5 lakhs employees got absorbed in BSNL and these employees got 43000 crores profit in the earlier year.    Com Rai mentioned that the policies of the DoT / Govt. of India has led to the present circumstances of the BSNL.  DoT has assured the rural deficit charges against the rural services provided by the BSNL with 34000 exchanges, and DoT has stopped the payment of rural deficit charges based on the recommendation of the TRAI, whereas BSNL continued with its services in rural areas without the refund of rural deficit charges.  BSNL employees has reduced loss to half at 4000 crores in 2015-16 and made operative profit in the year 2014-15.  However, after the introduction of Reliance Jio with 8 months free services has affected the revenue due to price war.  Com. G S mentioned that the call drop in BSNL is much less as compared to any other service provider.   The request of BSNL management to allot 4G spectrum one and half year back but it has not been considered by the DoT till date .  The issue of allotment of 4G spectrum was raised many time in the Parliament and MoC has also assured to allot the 4G spectrum.  Inspite of BSNL installing 4G equipment and awaited for the allotment of 4G spectrum, the request has not been considered by the DoT.  This has also resulted in the revenue loss of BSNL, as BSNL has failed to meet the 4G demand of the customer, as against the 4G services provided by other service providers.

GS further mentioned that when all the operators are availing loans from the Banks, BSNL is not allowed to avail the loan facility and the request of BSNL to issue letter of comfort to avail the loan is also not considered.  This has also affected the revenue position of the BSNL has BSNL could is unable to compete with other services providers due to the negative approach of the beaurocrats in  the DoT.   He mentioned that first time in the history of DoT/BSNL, wages of the employees were not paid in time and the salary of the employees for the month of February 2019 was paid on 16.3.2019.

He also pointed out that the pension contribution is being collected by the DoT on the maximum of the pay scale as against the decision of the Govt. of India to collect it on the minimum of the basic.  This has also adversely affected the financial position of the BSNL.

GS further stated that DoT has collected huge amount in excess from the BSNL on allotment of 3G by allotting the same at the highest rate by not allowing BSNL to participate in the bid.   DoT has forcefully allotted the 3G spectrum to BSNL without giving any option to choose the circles.  This has also affected / contributed to the present financial position of BSNL.

GS further stated that as against the release of 2500 crores to BSNL, DoT has paid only 500 crores.  40% of the employees are involved in carrying out the NOFN project of the Govt. of India.   He mentioned that BSNL is carrying out  all the important project of the Govt. of India, Military services are also being met by the BSNL.  At every occasion, BSNL is only reaching the public during the crisis of natural calamity.  He pointed out that it is mandatory for the Govt. of allow BSNL to remain in service to protect the interest of the nation, security of the nation and to protect the larger interest of the public.

He informed that once the BSNL is not in the service sector, private operators will increase the tariff rate as per their whims and fans which is adversely affect the customers.

He demanded that BSNL employees are eligible for pay revision with 15% fitment at par with the other Govt. departments, as it was the need of the Govt. to form the BSNL from DoT.   The demand of the employees are very well justified. 

He also demanded that the pension revision of the retired officers and staff is the need of the hour, as the pension revision of all the staff and officers worked in the DoT has already been revised and that of the BSNL is not revised due to the reason that pay scale of BSNL employees has not been revised.  He mentioned that there was no such condition at the time of formation of BSNL and pay revision of the BSNL employees are no way connected with the pension revision of the retired employees, as the pension of all other employees retired from all other department has already been revised. 

Revision of pension is no way related to the profit and loss of the BSNL, as the retired employees are not contributing anything for the growth of the BSNL and they are no way responsible for the financial position of the BSNL and such stand of the DoT is irrelevant and not justified.

He has requested Hon. M.P. to use his good offices in resolving the issue by fulfilling the commitment given by the DoT at the time of formation of BSNL and also the assurances given by the MoSC to the AUAB representatives in the meetings held on 24.2.18 and 3.12.2018. 

Com Prahlad Rai also briefed about the activities of the AUAB at CHQ level, status and outcome of various trade union action, postponement of the indefinite strike in the month of December, details about various discussions with the MoC / DoT / BSNL management on the demands of the AUAB.  He also assured that AUAB will go to any extent to get the issues settled in favour of the employees with the support and co-operation from the field. He requested one and all to be united and support the AUAB of CHQ.    

Shri Yuvaraj Sambhajiraje Chatrapati, Hon. Member of Parliament in his address mentioned that the demand of the BSNL employees for the PRC is well justified, as when other Govt. departments are entitled for the pay and pension revision, BSNL employees are also eligible for pay revision and pension revision for the retired employees. 

He mentioned that the BSNL network is very good and appreciated the BSNL in providing the network coverage in the rural areas of the Maharashtra.  He also stated that even though there are various service providers, every family has at least one BSNL connection due to the reason that the network is available throughout the country in all the nook and corner of the rural areas.    He also mentioned that in the case only the private operators’ business is only  to be promoted, there was no need of formation of BSNL and commencing the services. 

He mentioned that due to the BSNL providing network in the nook and corner of the rural villages, villagers are able to contact the hospital  and public utility services away from about 40-60 kms from the villages head quarter. 

He extended his support for continuing the BSNL services for the larger interest of the nation and assured to take up the issue with the new government for settling the grievances of the BSNL employees.

While concluding the speech, Hon. M P advised GS AIBSNLEA to meet him at New Delhi and brief the issues to pursue with the Govt.

TO ONE & ALL

28.02.2019:  Protest demonstrations against non-payment of salary:
It is very unfortunate that payment of salaries of the Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL, for the month of February, 2019, is not made today. All of us are aware that BSNL is not getting the permission of the DoT, for taking bank loans. The AUAB has already demanded that the DoT should immediately permit BSNL for taking bank loans, to tide over the crisis. However, so far, the DoT has not given the necessary approval.

The AUAB has called on the employees to organise demonstrations tomorrow the 01.03.2019, protesting the non-payment of salary, and demanding the DoT, to immediately grant sanction to BSNL, for taking bank loans.

All the members of AIBSNLEA are requested to participate actively in the said demonstration..............<<<Click here for AUAB Circular>>>

21.02.2019:  DoT commission seeks revenue assurance from BSNL, MTNL for revival support - Public sector firms BSNL and MTNL have sought financial support, 4G spectrum and approvals for asset sales as part of their revival plans.

By PTI | Feb 21, 2019, 05.34 PM IST

The DCC decided on providing technology neutral connectivity to 361 uncovered villages.
The Digital Communications Commission (DCC) on Thursday asked loss-making telecom PSUs BSNL and MTNL to explain their turnaround strategy and give an assurance to achieve higher revenue for getting financial support, an official said.
Public sector firms BSNL and MTNL have sought financial support, 4G spectrum and approvals for asset sales as part of their revival plans.

"
DCC members wanted to know what is the revival plan, when will these (BSNL and MTNL) companies come back to health, how will they ensure that if they are given all the support, how exactly the commission can foresee that they will achieve higher revenue," an official source said after the meeting.

MTNL has sought a refund of interest that it paid for broadband wireless access spectrum which it was given by the government and asked to pay the price that was determined in auctions held in 2010.
Both state-run telecom firms have asked for permissions to monetise their land assets as well as the voluntary retirement scheme for employees on the Gujarat model. Under the Gujarat model, an amount equivalent to 35 days of salary for each completed year of service, and 25 days of salary for each year of service left till retirement is offered.

The VRS scheme for BSNL and MTNL will have a revenue impact of Rs 6,365 crore and Rs 2,120 crore respectively.
Both the companies have also sought spectrum for 4G services through equity infusion from the government.

MTNL, which operates in only Delhi and Mumbai, and expects that these measures will help the company is doing away with debt to the tune of around Rs 19,000 crore.
BSNL, which has the lowest debt of Rs 14,000 crore among all telecom operators, has sought 4G spectrum across India through equity infusion of Rs 7,000 crore. The total spectrum will cost the firm Rs 14,000 crore.
The PSUs have been also ailing because of high revenue to debt ratio due to a high number of government employees that were transferred by the Department of Telecom to them at the time of their formation. BSNL has 1.76 lakh employees across India and MTNL has 22,000 employees. It is estimated that 16,000 MTNL employees and 50 per cent of BSNL will retire while 50 per cent will retire in the next 5-6 years.
The revenue to wage ratio in case of MTNL has swelled to 90 per cent while in the case of BSNL it is around 60-70 per cent.
The DoT has recommended that VRS of both PSU should be funded through 10-year bond issue and the bond should be paid back by lease revenue that they will get from land asset monetisation.
DCC, the apex decision-making body at the DoT, has taken a call that revival of these PSUs is important because they operate in a strategic sector and therefore government presence in this sector is desirable. These are organisations with considerable strength capabilities as well as a strong asset base.
Besides, this the DCC has asked Universal Service Obligation Fund to work out on leasing of optical fibre network laid down under BharatNet project for 20 year period to telecom operators through auction to push its uptake and also evaluate sale option.
"After discussion, it was decided that the DoT must pressure this in all seriousness because this is a costly asset that is being created. However, DoT should also look at the outright sale of these fibre as well as leasing. USOF has been asked to work on it. In-principle the idea we must go ahead handling over this to the private sector on a long lease and ensure of its utilisation," the source said.
USOF has been also making an estimation of revenue proceeds through this process.
The DCC decided on providing technology neutral connectivity to 361 uncovered villages.
"
These are mostly in border areas. List of 261 villages which was given by MHA and some in J&K and some other uncovered areas. USOF has always gone for technologically pre-specified solutions but this time is a departure where only desired service levels and outcomes to be asked for," the source said.
If the project is successful than all tenders from USOF will be issued on technology neutral basis going to be technology neutral one.

19.02.2019:  Organise the 3rd day strike most effectively- AUAB calls on the employees.

The AUAB conducted it’s review meeting today evening. General Secretaries and senior office bearers of the constituents of the AUAB participated in the meeting. The meeting reviewed the 2nd day strike that has taken place in various circles. The meeting expressed it’s satisfaction that the 2nd day strike was very successful. In fact, in some circles, the strike percentage has improved, compared to the 1st day strike. The meeting also took serious note of the letter issued by the Corporate Office, threatening to take action under FR 17A.

The meeting resolved to inform the employees that, this attempt of the Management would be stiffly resisted by the AUAB. The meeting also took note of the strike particulars of the various circles, circulated by the Corporate Office. The figures contained factually incorrect details.

Finally, the meeting decided to take all out efforts to organise the 3rd day strike more effectively.

19.02.2019:  GS writes to Shri Anupam Shrivatsava, CMD BSNL regarding revision of Seniority of TES Gr. ‘B’ in compliance with Hon’ble Supreme Court Judgement dated 21.1.2015 & 14.12.2017 in Civil Appeal No.4389 of 2010....<<<<Click here for letter>>>
19.02.2019:  Strike continues with the same intensity for the 2nd Day.
The 2nd day strike of the Executives and Non-Executives in BSNL is going on as successfully as it was held on the 1st Day. Encouraging reports are coming from throughout the country. Demonstrations are being organised in each and every place, condemning the government for not allotting 4G spectrum to BSNL, for creating road-blocks in the financial revival of BSNL and also for not settling the 3rd Pay Revision. AIBSNLEA heartily congratulates all the comrades and requests to organise tomorrow’s strike also in the same intensity.

18.02.2019:  First day strike a roaring success - AUAB congratulates the employees.

The AUAB has heartily congratulated the Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL, for making the 1st day strike a roaring success. In it’s meeting held at 15:30 hrs today, the AUAB reviewed the 1st day strike. General Secretaries and senior office bearers of all the constituents of the AUAB attended. As per the report received from circles, the 1st day strike is near total. It is also observed that the strike is taking place in a totally peaceful manner. On one side, in it’s statement issued through the Press Information Bureau late last evening, the DoT had stated that, it is in the process of negotiating with the AUAB, to resolve the issues.

However, on the other side, the DoT has not come forward to invite the AUAB for talks, even after the employees have en-masse joined the 1st day strike. This only shows the double - talk of the DoT. Under these circumstances, today’s meeting of the AUAB, resolved to call upon the employees to further intensify the strike, and make it a cent percent success on the 2nd and 3rd days.

18.02.2019: 3-day Strike implemented successfully in its first day.

In the first day of the three days Strike call given by AUAB has been successfully implemented throughout the Country. Many Circles, it is reported that about 90 to 95% Employees have actively participated in this Strike. The reports of all the Circles are very encouraging.

DOT through PIB has given the Press release that DoT reiterates that positive steps are being taken by the Department in respect of all the demands.

No proper steps are taken by the DoT Administration/BSNL Management for the settlement of the legitimate demands which has forced AUAB to go on 3 days Strike. After the AUAB Strike Notice served on 1.2.2019, DoT Administration has not called the AUAB Leaders to discuss their demands for settlement which pertains to DoT only. BSNL Non Executives and Executives are seriously frustrated and agitated due to non-settlement of their long pending legitimate demands.

Today the CMD BSNL and Director(HR), BSNL Board met the AUAB leaders. The AUAB representatives told the Management that, they are prepared to accept 3rd Pay Revision with 5 % fitment, as offered earlier by the DoT. However, they  demanded that this commitment should be given in writing by the DoT, so that the AUAB can consider deferment of the strike. Even this demand of the AUAB is not accepted. Further, the DoT has also diluted it's earlier assurance to give DA neutralisation. The DoT is demanding that the AUAB should call off the strike, in view of the terror attack in Pulwama. The Secretary, Telecom, has put a condition that she would not meet the AUAB leaders, unless they call off the strike. Immediately after the meeting with the BSNL Management, all the General Secretaries of the AUAB met and decided to go ahead with the strike.

We categorically told that despite the assurances given in the Digital Commission Meeting held on 5th Feb., 2019 for 4G Spectrum allocation to BSNL and issues related to revival of BSNL, payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay have not been cleared by IFD(DoT) and not send to DoE. the queries raised by DoP&PW regarding IDA pension revision formula has not yet been replied by DoT. The Cabinet Note on pay revision of BSNL executives & non-executives for relaxing affordability clause of 3rd PRC has not been sent to Cabinet for approval. The left out issues of 2nd PRC are not yet settled.

He further explained that in MTNL revival plan, MTNL Management has suggested for reduction of age from 60 years to 58 years, VRS & there is no proposal for pay revision. The BSNL revival plan is now ready but informally Digital Commission has advised to DoT to take the comments of TRAI on this issue in view of the Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement. Thus 4G spectrum allocation will be send to TRAI for comments shortly. The other issues related to monitisation of non-core land of BSNL & VRS are to be discussed in the next Digital Commission Meeting to be held on 21st Feb., 2019 at 11.00 AM.

On the AUAB demands AST told that he will shortly arrange a meeting with Hon'ble MOSC(I/C). He appealed to defer three days strike. We explained that three days strike notice has been served to draw the attention of govt. fro the settlement of AUAB demands. In case the demands are not settled, AUAB will be forced to resume indefinite strike.

05.02.2019:  Digital Commission Meeting held today in DOT:- It is reliably learnt that the revival Plan of MTNL which was in DC  agenda could not be discussed today in view of the queries made by IFD(DOT). The revival plan of BSNL is yet to be prepared for want of final report on BSNL'S revival plan from IIM Ahemdabad. In BSNL'S revival plan, allotment of 4G Spectrum to BSNL is also the item for decision. It seems that the issues of revival of BSNL/MTNL are not the Priority items in DOT.

However, the meeting came to the conclusion that, no substantial progress has come on the issues of 3rd Pay Revision and Pension Revision. The meeting also came to the assessment that the time available for the settlement of demands is only upto February, 2019 and that the announcement for Parliament elections may come any time in March, 2019. Once the elections are announced, the Code of Discipline will also come into effect and no demand could be settled thereafter.

In view of the above reasons, the meeting decided to convey to the government that, the AUAB would be compelled to give call for the strike. The meeting also decided that the AUAB should meet the Additional Secretary, Telecom, in person, and communicate this.

GS AIBSNLEA and Advisor(N), CHQ Com. Karan Singh were present in the meeting.

11.01.2019:  Meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction (Institutional Mechanism)  and meeting between the AUAB and the Addl.Secretary(T), DoT:

A meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction (Institutional Mechanism) was held in the Sanchar Bhawan yesterday the 10-01-2019. From the AUAB, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU & Convener, Com. Chandeswar Singh, GS, NFTE & Chairman, Com.K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA and Com.Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA participated. Shri.R.K.Kandelwal, Joint Secretary(Admn.) - Convener Committee, Shri S.K.Jain, DDG(Estt.), Sh. Rajeev Kumar DDG(Budget), Sh. Sanjay Agarwal, Director(Estt.), Sh. Pawan Gupta, Director(PSU), from DoT side and Ms.Sujata Ray, Director(HR) and ShriA.M.Gupta, GM(SR) from BSNL side were present in the meeting.
It may be remembered that the AUAB strongly demanded that this Committee should be chaired by the Addl. Secretary(T), and that no result would be achieved if it is presided over by the Joint Secretary level officer. Whatever we predicted, has proved to be correct. The Joint Secretary(Admn.) and the DDG(Estt.) were not able to give any worthwhile information about the status of the issues, viz., 3rd Pay Revision, Allotment of 4G spectrum, Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay and Pension Revision. Both the officers are completely negative on our issues. No worth mentioning outcome came from this meeting.
Hence, after this meeting, the AUAB leaders went and met Shri Anshu Prakash, Addl. Secretary(T) and expressed their total dissatisfaction about the outcome of the meeting. Shri R.K.Kandelwal, Joint Secretary (Admn.), Ms. Sujata Ray, Director (HR) and Shri A.M.Gupta, GM(SR) were also present. Thereafter, full fledged discussion took place with the Addl.Secretary(T).

3rd Pay Revision :
Detailed discussion took place. The Addl. Secretary(T) told that the DoT is ready to settle the 3rd Pay Revision. But, he categorically told that it will be very difficult for the DoT to get the approval of the Cabinet for 15% fitment, since BSNL's financial position does not allow payment of such high salary. He requested the AUAB and the BSNL Management to discuss and take viable decision and bring to DoT immediately so that this can be taken in next Digital Commission scheduled to be held in the first week of Feb., 2019.

4G spectrum to BSNL:
As regards the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, the Addl. Secretary(T) confidently told that the DoT would do it's best to get the Cabinet approval for the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL. He expressed hope that the Digital Commission meeting to be held in the 1st week of February would give the necessary clearance, after which it would go for the Cabinet approval.

Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay:
As regards the issue of Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay, the Addl. Secretary(T) told that the Department of Expenditure (DoE) has sought certain details and that the DoT has already written to the BSNL in this regard. The Director (HR) replied that within 1 or 2 days, BSNL would send a reply to the DoT. The Addl. Secretary(T) assured that thereafter prompt action would be taken to get the approval of the DoE.

Pension Revision:
On this issue, the AUAB representatives expressed their dissatisfaction and demanded that prompt action should be taken by the DoT. Thereafter, detailed discussion took place with regards to the fitment, etc. Finally, the Addl. Secretary(T) requested Director(HR) to provide with copies of relevant documents like Govt. orders related to the earlier pension revision documents to the employees, etc.
 

Left out items of 2nd PRC :At the end of the meeting, the Addl. Secretary(T), DoT suggested that the AUAB representatives could again meet him next week. In addition to that left out items of 2nd PRC, Director(HR) BSNL informed that the BSNL Management is taking necessary action to enhance the superannuation benefits from 5% to 8%.

The gathering was very curious to listen their beloved leader Com.Prahlad Rai GS, AIBSNLEA .In a very impressive & commanding Speech GS covered all the issues from viability of BSNL to the organizational matters.
GS informed in response to DOT letter dated 6-11.2018, that BSNL Management has proposed reduction of retirement age as 58 years Instead of 60 years for revision of pay of Board level and below Board level executives of BSNL under 3rd PRC. Even this BSNL's proposal is not acceptable to DoT, mentioning that the financial implication for Implementation of 3rd PRC i.e. Rs. 2980 Crore annually could not be substantiated.

GS expressed his surprise that BSNL Management has given such proposal to DoT even without discussing with theBSNL Unions and Associations. This is a serious situation and our association with AUAB has to mmediately react against such Actions of DOT/BSNL Management.
Regarding JTO (T) To SDE (T) our GS informed that AIBSNLEA is seriously taking up the case to fill up about 4700 vacant SDE (T) posts Since there is no stay order in promotions from JTO (T) to SDE (T).But you know that due to contempt of court Case is pending in Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam promotion order from JTO(T) to SDE(T) could not be issued.
GS informed that AIBSNLEA is against recruitment of MT in BSNL,and CHQ is ready to  fight against the direct recruitment of MT in BSNL, the prospects of BSNL recruits officers will be badly affected if this channel is open and once again Our young officers will face the same situation which we the seniors have faced due to recruitment of ADT's.Regarding DE To DGM Promotion GM informed that Hon'able CAT Chandigarh vacated the Stay order from DE to DGM (T) promotion. You Know that about 890DGM (T) posts is vacant and adhoc DGM and Regular DE's who had completed 4 years service may get the benefit.
CHQ is seriously taking up the issue with Director HR & GM Pers. for early issue of promotion orders.

5. Revision of pay scales E1A by E2, E2A by E3, E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 & E6 by E7:
