22.05.2017: Meeting with CMD, BSNL:

GS, FS, AGS (HQ) and Advisor (HQ) met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding:

a) Implementation of E-2 and E-3 pay scales as replacement of E-1A and E-2A and upgradation of Subsequent pay scales:  We expressed our serious concern against the BSNL’s latest letter to DOT in limiting replacement E-1A by E-2 and E-2A by E-3 pay scales revising its earlier proposal of up-gradation of subsequent pay scales E-3 by E-4, E-4 by E-5, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7.  This limitation will create disparity among the pay scales of Executives in BSNL. Several seniors executives in E-5 scale are stagnated for the last two years and executives will be forced to continue in E-3 pay scale for more than 10 years which will cause further frustration. We categorically told that in case the subsequent pay scales are not up-graded, then against this disparity AIBSNLEA will be forced to go on agitation. CMD after discussion assured to look in to the matter.

 

b) Implementation of 3rd PRC: We appraised CMD about our discussions with Addl. Secretary (T) in this regard and requested CMD BSNL to kindly use his good office in DPE through Secretary (T) to get approved the 3rd PRC report implementation in BSNL with 15% fitment.  CMD assured to discuss the matter with Secretary (T)

 

c) Illegal promotion of 41 DGMs (Engg.) of 147 SDEs of LDCE quota whose seniority have been quashed by Hon’ble High Court Kerala and SLP is pending in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India:  We expressed our resentment against the illegal promotion of ineligible DEs to 41 DGM (Engg) posts of 147 SDEs of LDCE quota whose seniority is quashed by the Hon’ble High Court Kerala and SLP is pending in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. The JTOs joined in the year 1995,1994,1993,1992,1991 and 1990  have been assigned seniority  as SDEs against the vacancy of year 1994,1995, 1996 which has been quashed by Hon’ble High Court Kerala because these JTOs were eligible to write TES Gr-‘B’ examination on completion of 5 years of JTO regular service and thereafter only they can eligible to write TES Gr.’B’ LDCE.  Here the JTOs who were not born in the cadre of JTOs are given TES Gr ‘B’ seniority prior to their JTO joining in the department.  CMD BSNL after detail discussions assured to get examine the case at the earliest.

On our request of 15% fitment benefit to BSNL executives, Joint Secretary (Admn.) replied that in the past meeting with Secretary it was clarified that 3rd PRC report has already been notified and on the basis further decisions are to be taken.  It seems that DoT may not recommend 15% fitment to BSNL employees. Against this we have to decide strategies to achieve 15% fitment at any cost.

16.05.2017 Comrade V.K. Paramasivam (VKP) is no more

Our veteran, one of very strong leader at various levels Comrade VKP expired on 16.05.2017.  VKP, an inspirational personality with full of sincerity and motivation.

15.05.2017: Meeting with Director (HR)

GS, FS, AGS (HQ) met Director (HR) and discussed:

(A) Implementation of 3rd PRC report: We requested Director (HR) for using her good office in DoT/DPE for the implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL. Director (HR) mentioned that earlier Member (S), Telecom Commission has submitted the same proposal of BSNL to DPE in this regard but now the matter is being handled by Addl. Secretary (T), DoT, hence matter needs to be persuaded by all of us in DoT/DPE to get approved 15% fitment benefit to BSNL executives.

 

(B) DE to DGM (promotion): While extending  our thanks for issuing 438 DGM promotion we expressed serious resentment against 41 DGMs promotion of 147 (LDCE) SDEs group whose seniority has been quashed by the Hon'ble High Court Kerala and SLP in pending in the Hon'ble Supreme Court to decide their seniority.  Hence these 41 non-eligible DEs have been promoted to DGM posts above their senior DEs. It has caused serious frustration amongst the senior DEs who are fighting in the Hon'ble Supreme Court for justice.  Director (HR), after detailed discussions in the presence of GM (SR), Jt. GM (Pers.) and OSD directed Jt. GM (Pers.) to take immediate legal opinion and will further discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA after joining of PGM (Pers.) from leave shortly.

15.05.2017: Meeting with CMD BSNL

GS, FS,  AGS(HQ) met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding

(a) Implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment: We requested CMD BSNL for getting approved 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefit for BSNL executives from DOT/DPE. CMD BSNL informed that BSNL has already recommended to DOT for 15% fitment benefit to BSNL executives and on Friday (12-5-2017) Jt. Secy. (T) DoT has submitted the same to DPE for further necessary action.  He assured to discuss the matter with new Secretary (T) shortly and will try to plead before DPE along with DoT officers.  He further mentioned that Member (S), Telecom Commission has transferred this matter to Administrative Cell of DOT as it is of their domain. He was dealing the matter earlier since the out going Secretary (T), Shri J.S Deepak assigned him this work. CMD advised us also to pursue the matter in DoT/DPE for positive implementation.

 

(b) DE to DGM promotion:  We extended our thanks for issuing 438 DGM promotion orders but expressed serious resentment against the 41 DGMs promotion of the DEs who belongs to 147 LDCE SDEs (T) group whose seniority has been quashed by the  Hon'ble High Court Kerala and  SLP is still pending in the  Hon'ble Supreme Court to decide their seniority.  Hence the non-eligible DEs have been promoted above the senior DEs.  It has caused serious resentment and demoralisation to senior DEs who will now work under their juniors.  CMD appreciated our concern and mentioned that he has already directed Director (HR) to investigate the matter as per the letter given by us in this regard.

15.05.2017:  Implementation of Govt. decision on the recommendations of the 7th CPC - Revision of pension of pre 2016 pensioners / family pensioners - Instructions on Pension revision of BSNL Pensioners:

GM(Pers.) informed that posting on promotion from DE to DGM(Engg.) are being finalized & after returning of PGM (Pers) from leave tomorrow, the approval of Director (HR), BSNL Board will be taken to fill-up 513 DGM (Engg.) posts. The promotion orders are expected tomorrow.

02.05.2017 AIBSNLEA stand on replacement of existing pay scales:

AIBSNLEA has reiterated its stand on the replacement of intermediatory pay scales E1A, E2A and other scales E3,E4,E5, E6 by E2,E3,E4,E5,E6 and E7 respectively and accordingly has given a letter to CMD, BSNL and Secretary (Telecom) for reconsideration. In this connection BSNL has already sent a proposal to DoT vide letter number 1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 06.06.2016 for approval wherein-

 

(i) Pay scale of JTO & SDE (& equivalent executives) may be revised to E2 and E3 respectively as replacement of pre-revised scale of E1A / E2A w.e.f. 01.01.2007.

(ii) The pay scales E3, E4, E5 & E6 may be up-graded to E4, E5, E6 & E7 w.e.f. 01.01.2007 in respect of the cadres of Sr. SDE, AGM, DGM and SG-DGM respectively and appropriate changes may accordingly be approved in the BSNL Executive Promotion Policy.

 

AIBSNLEA is demanding the same for the benefit of all executives. AIBSNLEA represents all disciplines of the executive of BSNL whether it is BSNL absorbed or BSNL recruited, hence trying for benefit of all the cadres. In case, Executive Associations do not insist upon for the approval of above BSNLs proposal then all the Executive Cadres will never forgive them. Moreover replacement of E1A by E2, E2A by E3 and subsequent pay scales E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7 was first item in the Manifesto of AIBSNLEA for the Membership Verification held in December 2016. AIBSNLEA strongly opposed keeping one Executive in E3 Scale for ten years consequent upon revision of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 scales.    

 

JTO / JAO promotions will not end at the level of SDE / AO only but they will be promoted to the higher grades also. In view of this all the pay scales have to be up-graded as already accepted and recommended by the BSNL Management.

 

When AIBSNLEA is demanding up-gradation of scales up-to E-7 grade, how it can be unfortunate? AIBSNLEA has been demanding for the replacement of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 but it cannot drop the demand of up-gradation of higher scales upto E7 grade since it represents all the cadres of BSNL executives.

 

In aforesaid proposal financial burden on BSNL towards perks & allowances of the executives would be bare minimum as the executives from the scales E3, E4, E5 and E6 would be simply placed to the next higher scale i.e. E4, E5, E6 & E7 and most of them will not get any financial benefit even of a single penny except those whose stagnation comes to an end. Hence, there would not be any cascading effect.

 

We therefore, just requested CMD, BSNL to insist upon DoT for approval of this proposal to resolve the problem once for all.

 

We have also requested BSNL Management to persuade for approval of the proposal of deduction of pension contribution payable to DoT on actual pay of an executive instead of the highest of his/her pay scale. This will reduce the additional financial implications on BSNL on account of pension contributions to bare minimum.

 

However, AIBSNLEA support will continue to AIGETOA for their strugle.

02.05.2017 Circulation of fake order on replacement of E1A and E2A pay scales by E2 and E3 pay scales respectively:

GS discussed with Director (PSU) to confirm the validity of a letter send by him on 01.05.2017 regarding replacement of E1A and E2A pay scales by E2 and E3 pay scales respectively. Director (PSU) informed that NO SUCH ORDER HAS BEEN SIGNED BY HIM. It is a fake order which has been circulated fraudulently by some miscreants.

GS mentioned that the Govt. has withdrawn the ADC charges and not allowed BSNL to participate in the 3G spectrum bid and subsequently BSNL was imposed the 3G spectrum with highest rate.  Subsequently Govt has taken away the reserve fund of 30,000 crores from BSNL and BSNL was not able to procure the equipment required for its expansion.   The Govt. is taking the pension contribution from BSNL on highest of IDA pay scale instead of the actual pay of an executive. He mentioned that Rs 500 Crores/Annum may be saved by taking pension contribution on actual basic.  

Com GS mentioned due to the strong opposition by the associations and unions only the dis-investment has not been taken place in the BSNL.  Dis-investment has not helped MTNL.  Com GS further mentioned that the present trend of the declining profit is a serious concern for all of us and there is a great need to think over it.

Com GS mentioned that all the dues of BSNL i.e. pending rural deficit charges, BSNL refund etc should be cleared immediately by the Government.

 

He explained that how due to the efforts of AIBSNLEA, Government has not succeeded to privatize BSNL on the issues like VRS, 30% disinvestment and unbundling of last mile copper and this is the only role of Trade Unions by which the disinvestment and unbundling of Copper conductor has not taken place in BSNL.

 

Com GS explained the role of AIBSNLEA in the viability of BSNL. GS mentioned the firm Commitment of AIBSNLEA towards the Viability of BSNL.

24.04.2017 AIBSNLEA supports AIGETOA agitation

 

AIBSNLEA has extended its support to the agitation of AIGETOA in view of the common demands for which we jointly struggled in the past under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executives' Associations. The arbitrary notification of E1A & E2A intermediatory pay scales by DoT has lowered the status of JTO & SDE equivalent executives. Future recruitment of JTO & JAO will take place in E1 pay scale only. This fact was well known that DoT has processed E1A & E2A intermediatory pay scales then how the said Majority Executive Association has allowed its notification. In the recent referendum of Executives' Associations, Majority Association has been given all negotiation powers on policy matters concerning to the executives in BSNL. Hence, the Majority Association just after the notification of these intermediatory pay scales should have exhausted all negotiation channels in BSNL & DoT to get withdrawal of this notification instead of jumping into agitation directly. However, it is up-to them to take such decision. AIGETOA has preferred to align with the Majority Association for the settlement of HR issues leaving aside the platform of United Forum of BSNL Executives' Associations comprising AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA & AITEEA.

 

AIBSNLEA, eventhough is committed to support AIGETOA in their efforts for settlement of the genuine HR issues but AIBSNLEA can't be mortgaged to some association. AIBSNLEA is struggling for getting limited Trade Union Facilities at All India Level/Circle Level & SSA Level with BSNL Management and through court cases.

 

At present after the referendum process AIBSNLEA CHQ, Circles & SSAs are not mentally prepared for the agitation. In case the CHQ Office Bearers, Circle/District Office Bearers & Members are victimized by the management, AIBSNLEA does not have any recognized channel to save them.

 

In view of this, AIBSNLEA decided to extend its solidarity support to AIGETOA struggle. We extend our best wishes and support for the success of their struggle & settlement of HR issues.

24.04.2017 Report on the Open Session held during the 6th Circle Conference of AIBSNLEA Maharashtra Circle on 22nd April 2017   at A V Hall, Sant Gadagebaba University, Tapowan Road Amaravati

Com. A G Joshi, CS AIBSNLEA MH Circle welcomed all the dignitaries.  In his address he mentioned that after launching the GSM services by the BSNL, the tariff of GSM services has been drastically reduced.  The work of NOFN is in progress and the CGM MH Circle is taking keen interest in completing the same within the target period.  He mentioned that Shri Peeyush Khare Sir is contacting each and every officer of the field units, which no other earlier Circle head had done. This is motivating the field officers. He mentioned that in the recent transfer orders of Executives, there are a few cases where the transfer has been done without any criteria and such cases needs to be modified.  Com. Joshi stated that after the brain storming session with the associations and unions, the points raised by the associations and unions such as delay in processing the file has already been taken care by the CGM and the delay in processing the file has been reduced and now the files are getting cleared within 2 to 3 days. He requested that the same practice of clearing the files within 2 to 3 days is to be implemented in SSA level also. He also stated that after the introduction of bio-metric attendance system, discipline has also been improved. 

 

Shri Ajay Sawatkar, Sr. GMT, Amravati in his address appreciated the delegates and office bearers in attending the meeting at Amravati inspite of severe heat.  He wished the conference to discuss the past, present and future departmental plans.  He stated that Hon. CGM MH Circle has already given the target upto SDE level on the 1st day of the financial year itself and it is now the responsibility of each and every field officers to achieve the target by discharging their duties.  He also mentioned that the guidance of Hon. M.P. Shri Adsul sir will help every one of us and requested him to brief about the Govt. Plans.  He expressed his sincere thanks for inviting him for the conference.

 

Dr. R S Sapkal, Head of Department Chemical Technology, SGBAU, Amravati expressed his gratitude for inviting the University Head and stated that he is attending the meeting on behalf of the Head of the University, as he has gone to Delhi to attend an urgent meeting. He mentioned that the campus of the university is echo friendly having 450 acres of land and requested the conference to make policy decisions in improving the BSNL services to the customers. He mentioned that BSNL is giving very good service and the University is using landline as well as GSM services.  He requested to improve the GSM coverage in the campus. He briefed about the University which is having 23 post graduate departments, 450 affiliated colleges having 4,50,000 students, 9 faculties.  He expressed that any project if assigned to the university by the BSNL can be completed within the target. 

 

Com Prahlad Rai, General Secretary AIBSNLEA CHQ has expressed his gratitude to the organizers of the 6th Circle Conference of AIBSNLEA MH Circle for inviting him.  In his address he mentioned that Maharashtra Telecom Circle is the biggest telecom circle in BSNL as well as for AIBSNLEA.  He expressed that under the leadership of Shri Peeyush Khare, CGM, the MH circle should be a profit making circle, as the circle has good customer base and can very well grow and increase revenue.  He also stated that many circles are moving towards the profit making and under the leadership of Shri Khare Sir, MH circle will soon join in the list of profit making circles like Kerala, Odissa, A & N and J & K. He stated that BSNL is a PSU and not a Govt. Department, we have to earn to get salary.  It will be only possible to protect the PPP by doing hard work and turn around the BSNL into profit.  It is also possible only by giving best services to its customers.

 

He has mentioned that the BSNL has been formed after converting the Govt. Department with 3.5 lakhs employees who have taken absorption and the BSNL was giving best services and made profit till 2008-09.  Thereafter due to the wrong policies of the Govt BSNL become as a loss making PSU.  He has mentioned that the Govt has withdrawn the ADC charges, not allowed BSNL to participate in the 3G spectrum bid and subsequently BSNL was imposed the 3G spectrum with highest rate, when Airtel was given option to opt the circles.  Subsequently Govt has taken away the reserve fund of 30,000 crores from BSNL and BSNL was not able to procure the equipment required for its expansion.   The Govt is taking the pension contribution from BSNL on highest of IDA pay scale instead of the actual pay of an executive.  He also mentioned that in order to get the benefit of the 3rd PRC, working hard and making BSNL as profit making company is very much essential.  He also stated that BSNL is the only telecom service provider serving the nation in its true spirit during any natural calamities.   BSNL always gives reliable services during natural calamities without looking for the profit.  He mentioned that inspite of stiff competition and introduction of JIO service for free, the sale of SIM of BSNL has not been reduced.  He mentioned that CMD BSNL has introduced very innovative plans like night free calling, free national roaming etc.

 

Com Prahlad Rai requested Hon. M.P. Shri Adsul Sir to raise the issue with Government regarding tower subsidiary company.  Presently BSNL has more than 65000 towers and the subsidiary company will be controlled by the BSNL and later on it will be sold out by the Govt.  He stated that the officers working in BSNL are the Govt. Officers and due to the strong opposition by the associations and unions only the dis-investment has not been taken place in the BSNL.  Dis-investment has not helped MTNL.  Merger of MTNL which is a listed company and ITI which is manufacturing industry with the BSNL as a service provider will again affect the survival of BSNL.  He also stated that due to the existence of BSNL only the tariff is under control and after the introduction of GSM services by the BSNL in the year 2002 the tariff has come down in the GSM sector which otherwise was charging for incoming also.  He mentioned that survival of BSNL is the need of the Nation and requested Hon. M.P. Sir to help BSNL to overcome the issues.

 

He also briefed about the HR issues, achievements of the AIBSNLEA  status of various CPCs, Court Cases, DE to DGM promotion, E1 – E2 pay scale status, CPSE cadre hierarchy issue, restructuring of Raja Bhasha Adhikari, E1+5 increment, SDE RR, Diversion of posts of CAOs, etc. He mentioned that AIBSNLEA is very much concerned about the HR issues and will definitely achieve the desired results, but requested all the executives to provide best services to the customers and increase the revenue and has re-iterated that the survival of BSNL is very well linked with the future benefits of its employees. 

 

He congratulated the Amravati Team for holding the conference in a best manner.

 

Shri Anandrao Adsul, Hon. M.P. of Parliament in his address stated that he is the leader of many organisations.  He stated that a leader is a person who leads the organisation where we are working who knows all the positive and negative sides of the organisation and also who leads the problems of the colleagues as an Association, Com. Prahlad Rai, G.S. of AIBNLEA is a perfect leader.  He assured that as an M.P. he will take up the problems with the Govt along with the leaders of the AIBSNLEA. He assured to meet the Hon. MoC very soon along with the leaders of AIBSNLEA and requested Com. Prahlad Rai to make the detailed note and representation with all the relevant points.

 

He mentioned that he is the leader of 6 state and 6 central trade unions and he can very well co-relate with the issues of the workers. He briefed about the positions he was holding including the Minister of state (Finance).   He mentioned that 90% of the PSUs in the country are in problem and are in heavy loss. He briefed about the duties and responsibilities of the unions and associations.  He also stated that the organisation is there that is why unions and associations exists, hence taking care of the organisation is the prime duties of the associations and unions. 

 

He also mentioned that competition is essential for the improvement. There will be no improvement without competition.  There are infrastructures available with BSNL. In private, the decisions are taken immediately and implemented which is not happening in the PSUs.  Delay in decision amount to denial.

 

He mentioned that there are big opportunities for BSNL in tribal areas, as now a days, tribal population also in need of the latest technology and mobile services with latest handsets.  He stated that the days we were waiting for the customers had gone and now we have to approach the customers.  There are problems everywhere and the life is to face the problems.

 

The Govt. is very well interested with the revival of BSNL and having a proposal. There is a good opportunity given to BSNL by the Govt to provide OFC connectivity to all the Panchayats which is a biggest business for the BSNL.  He stated that CGMs should make presentation and should meet the MoC and he has assured to accompany the CGMs and / or the Association representatives to the MoC to settle the issues.  He thanked the organizers for inviting him for the session.

 

Shri Peeyush Khare, CGM MH Circle Mumbai extended thanks for inviting him for the session. He mentioned that BSNL is to serve the nation irrespective of any natural calamity, since last 70-80 years, we are serving the nation and will continue to serve the nation.  He stated that now we have to stop asking and get the things from own efforts. The work of connecting the Gram Panchayats and Village with NOFN has been awarded to BSNL.  BSNL has already laid more than 3500 kms of Fibre in a record time.  Already 15000 Gram Panchayats connections are ready.  BSNL has got a very good opportunity to earn profit through NOFN project. Some of the state Governments want to do the work of laying of NOFN project by themselves, this has to be taken up through Associations and with the help of Hon. M.P. and requested Com Prahlad Rai to take up the issue with the help of Hon. Adsul ji to retain the NOFN work to BSNL only.  BSNL is having PAN India network and out of one lakh Gram Panchayats, the work of 85,000 G.Ps has already been carried out by BSNL as other agencies like TCIL, Railtel, Powergrid has been failed in this project.

 

He mentioned that he has already completed 6 months as CGM.  He mentioned that every employee / executive will be given ample opportunity to improve.  In case no improvement is made by individuals, strict action will be initiated.  He requested everyone to love the work, worship the place of work, love work places. He mentioned that the element of fear should always be there.  He also stated that the result does not matter, but the efforts with full devotion is the expectation from the executives and non-executives.  He also stated that everyone should have a feeling that the organization will run by the efforts of all.  At present only 20% of the work force is working hard.  The remaining 80% also should start working hard.

 

He mentioned that the individual targets has already been assigned to the field officers based on the past performance with reasonable increment of 5% which is the standard of industry.  He stated that a core group has been formed at Circle level for all the areas in order to reduce the gap between the Circle and the field.   They can be contacted through phone, email or SMS. 

 

He also stated that BSNL is facing competition with the companies who are having complete freedom to take any decision which BSNL do not have.  He stated that more than 4000 BTSs are proposed.  All the SSA heads have been requested to inform the next year plan with consultation with the public representative of their area viz. MPs, MLAs, Franchisees, etc.  He requested to give importance to Adarsh Gram project and to give connectivity.  He also stated to take maximum efforts in the month of April as the performance of April will be the performance of the year.  He also stated that more than 4000 WIFI hot spots and 15000 Gram Panchayats network expansion is also to be taken place and expected to have better performance.

 

He also stated that in the financial year 2018-19, Maharashtra Circle will be a net profit making Circle

 

He requested the leaders to get the transfer orders implemented.  He also stated that the MH circle is the only state where 100% request transfers has been considered.  Executives transferred have to be relieved by the SSA head or else, Circle office has to relieve them through ERP.  He also stated that the legitimate cases will be considered.  He also stated that in case of poor performance at least 10-15 transfers will be done to keep the element of fear amongst the executives.

 

He also stated that in future request transfers will be considered only if recommended by the SSA heads favorably.   The target assigned is only to see the profit in the balance sheet and to get the pay revision.  The target assigned is purely based on the past performance and the feedback received from the field.  He requested everyone to expedite the work.

But, the further discussions in the Cabinet Secretariat are yet to be taken only after joining of the new Secretary (Telecom) in DoT.

 

We also extended our sincere thanks to Member (Services) for issuing the orders of enhancing the gratuity limit from 10 Lakhs to 20 Lakhs for BSNL Pensioners. Member (Services) mentioned that he made efforts to get it approved from Cabinet secretariat and thereafter immediately issued the orders.

Member (Services) also mentioned regarding double pay fixation in the same scale under EPP has been objected by the CCA and the matter is under discussions.

It has also degraded the JTO and SDE equivalent cadres of the executives. Since future recruitment of JTO/JAO will be in the E1 IDA Pay scale only. Director (HR) mentioned that she tried to discuss the matter with Addl. Secretary (T), DoT but he is on leave. She also discuss the matter with PS to Hon'ble MOSC (IC) wherein he clarified that the proposal sent by BSNL/DoT has been approved by the Hon'ble MOSC (IC).

PGM (Estt) who was also present in the meeting explained that Kerala Circle has raised some queries in this regard referring DoP&T instruction on SC/ST carried forward vacancies and Pers. Cell letter issued in the year 2013 on creation of PA cadre posts. After examining the Kerala Circle letter it was found logical and on that basis immediately the said clarification was kept abeyance till the matter is finalized. Director (HR) directed PGM (Estt) to discuss the matter with PGM (Pers.) and take the written clarification in this regard at the earliest to resolve the issue.

(vii) Non-consideration of request / immunity ground transfers in the Finance Wing: We expressed our serious resentment against the non-consideration of request / immunity ground transfers in the Finance Wing. Director (HR) assured to discuss the matter with GM (FP).

(viii) Approval of BSNL Board on the HR issues cleared by BSNL MC: We requested for an early approval of BSNL Board on the pending HR issues cleared by BSNL MC long before i.e. E1+5 advance increments benefit to JTO(SRD)/JAO 2013 batch & PA Cadre, diversion of 50% MT quota CAO posts to Seniority quota, modification in SDE RR & E5 toE6 grade time bound promotions to DGM(Adhoc) etc. Director(HR) mentioned that as soon as HR Plan of BSNL is approved by BSNL Board, immediately all these pending HR issues will also be approved by BSNL Board.

18.04.2017 Active support of AIBSNLEA to the agitation programmes being launched by Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations :

 

AIBSNLEA extends its its active support to the agitation programmes being launched by the Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations in view of the common HR issues of Executives raised in the charter of demands as the settlement of the important issues is more important rather than the credit who so ever takes it.

 

Further, at this juncture, AIBSNLEA suggests to have a single Executive Association by merging all the existing Executive Associations in BSNL. Single Executive Association will have a great strength and bargaining power to impress upon the DoT Administration as well as BSNL Management and to provide a safe umbrella to the entire executive fraternity of BSNL. This concept is available in many PSUs.

14.04.2017:Special General Body meeting at Port Blaire of Andaman & Nicobar Circle: Com. GS attended and addressed the Special General Body meeting at Port Blaire of Andaman & Nicobar Circle on 13th April, 2017 in Hotel Sun Sea Resort. Com. B. Partra, DGM & Circle President A&N Circle welcomed the members & Com. GS. He discussed regarding the financial viability of A&N Circle & difficulties being faced by the executives in relieving on tenure transfers. He requested CHQ intervention.

Com. Samir Choudhary, Circle Secretary A&N Circle in his keynote address while welcoming Com. GS discussed the issue related to A&N Circle& CHQ level. He explained that A&N Circle is facing acute shortage of executives in all the discipline.  On tenure transfers, substitutes are not being posted to A&N Circle hence executives are facing difficulties in getting relieved. He also apprised regarding non relieving of executives of Civil Wing, who have been transferred on tenure by Chief Engineer Civil WB Circle Kolkata & now BSNL Corporate Office has changed the reporting of A&N Circle Civil Wing to Chennai Chief Engineer Civil to technical control. It has caused the problem. He requested CHQ intervention. He also requested to expedite CPCs from JTO to SDE, SDE to DE, DE to DGM, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, CAO to DGM(F), JTO(C/E) to SDE(C/E), SDE(C) to EE(C) etc and requested to upgrade the post of PA to CGM A&N Circle to the grade of PS. He also requested  for consideration of pending tenure transfer cases etc.

Com. GS in his address extended sincere thanks to Com. Circle President & Circle Secretary for arranging Special General Body meeting on short notice in a grand manner. He congratulated all the executives for making A&N Circle a profit making Circle. He also discussed the importance of A&N state in safe guarding in the interest of Nation. He appreciated the efficient mobile service in A&N Circle in comparison to other private operators.  Com. GS discussed in detail regarding viability of BSNL i.e. absence of Govt. support & lack of interest of BSNL management to safe guard the interest of BSNL & its executives. He expressed resentment against arbitrary notification of intermediatory E1A & E2A pay scales by DoT,  which has lowered the pay scales of JTO/SDE equivalent executives. Also killing of the issues i.e. Rs. 22820/- pay fixation case of JTOs/JAOs post recruited 2007 and CPSU cadre hierarchy as recommended by KHAN Committee. He explained that how BSNL management in a calculated & strategic manner has buried the issues. Similarly, many other important HR issues i.e. E1+5 advance increment, diversion of 50% MT quota CAO posts to seniority quota, non- modification of SDE RR, E5 to E6 pay fixation to DGM(Adhoc) etc. are pending for the last one & half year for want of BSNL's Board approval. All CPCs are held up on the pretext of pending court cases but no sincere efforts are being made by the BSNL management to resolve the issue.

AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA & AITEEA under banner of United Forum launched agitation programme in the month of Dec., 2016 for the settlement of these important issues and with the assurance given by the BSNL management, the agitation was deferred. Thereafter BSNL management immediately victimized the office bearers & the members of these associations by issuing memorandum & salary deduction making dias-non. Unfortunately this act of BSNL management was supported by some executive associations, which has weakened the unity of executives in BSNL. He suggested that in BSNL there should be only one executive association to fight with the management & to safeguard the interest of BSNL community. He further extended sincere thanks to A&N Circle for organizing the meeting in a nice manner. Com. GS suggested merging of all associations in a single association for the unity of BSNL's executive & to fight against management to safeguard the interest of BSNL executives.

Com. R. Chandrashekaran,  DGM(IFA) extended vote of thanks. Dinner followed.

29.03.2017: Protest against lowering of payscales of JTO/JAO, SDE/AO & equivalent cadres: United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA & AITEEA strongly protest against the notification of DoT OM dated 28.03.2017 wherein payscales of JTO/JAO, SDE/AO & equivalent cadres have been lowered arbitrarily, which will seriously demoralize & de-motivate  the executives in BSNL. We express our strong resentment against the DoT decision & failure of BSNL Management in this regard.

United Forum of Executives Associations will shortly finalize the protest actions against such demoralizing act of DoT / BSNL.

It is unfortunate that the matter has been mis-handled by some executives Associations by giving a call of agitation & withdrawing without any fruitful outcome. It has strengthen DoT to ignore the protest of BSNL Executives. The fact remains that efforts were taken by the same executive associations to sabotage the outgoing agitation call given by United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations in the month of Dec., 2016 and Jan., 2017 and they impressed upon the BSNL Management to victimize the CHQ/Circle/Distt. level office bearers of United Forum by issuing the memorandum & deduction of salary for two days i.e. 27th & 28th Dec., 2016 for participating in Dharna programme. These actions has strengthen the BSNL/DoT management to conveniently ignore the genuine grievances of executives in BSNL.

Hence, United Forum has to decide its own course of actions to protest the interest of entire BSNL Executives community rather coming under the trap of so called executive associations to further damage the interest of executives of BSNL.

Let us decide & keep ready for the conclusive struggle to show the strength of executives in achieving the settlement of legitimate demands.
