22.02.2017: Refuting SNEA's derogatory remarks about AIBSNLEA while reporting JTO to SDE promotion case: Regarding JTO to SDE promotion related case (OP CAT-45/2015 and similar OP) in Hon. High Court of Kerala, SNEA(I) is simply trying to misguide general members by giving false and derogatory comments about AIBSNLEA while reporting news of the court proceedings in their website. 
Being an impleading respondent in OA filed in CAT and a respondent in subsequent OP-CAT now pending in HC of Kerala, AIBSNLEA filed our version (in support of BSNL, the main respondent) in the appropriate courts at the appropriate time. Our role, as in the case of all other impleading respondents, was to support BSNL's stand which is correct and legal as per various rules and procedures for fixation of seniority of JTOs, preparation of eligibility list, and several other related issues involved in this case. We did this job through the advocate representing AIBSNLEA.
It is to be noted that AIBSNLEA is the only association impleaded in this case in its own name in the capacity as an association of executives, initially at the time of coming this matter as an OA in the CAT Ernakulam and then became a respondent in OP-CAT at High Court of Kerala when appeal was filed by petitioners. The petitioners were a group of direct recruited (DR) JTOs, but their contentions were not acceptable as per rules. SNEA(I) is not a party in this case as an association, though some of their affected members got impleaded in this case.
AIBSNLEA was bold enough to appear as impleading party in the case and expressed our stand openly in public as we have nothing to hide. By impleading in the association's name, we wanted to protect the justified and genuine interests of all general members.
The other association was not concerned about this, but they only wanted to play behind the screen, giving a space for twisting their stand between DR JTOs and JTOs recruited during 1996 to 2000, according to their will and wish. Initially they played "a hide and seek game" and did not became an impleading respondent, as they wanted favors from both sides in view of referendum. In fact they have no right to comment on AIBSNEA in this regard as they are not at all a party in the party-array of this case. Honorable members are requested to realize the cheap politics now being played by that association with an ill-motive of defaming this organization.

21.02.2017:   GS met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding filling up of vacant posts of DEs/CAOs & DGMs. We requested that about 2000 DEs posts, 1000 CAOs posts and about 400 DGM(Engg.) & 100 posts of DGM(Fin.) are vacant. Similarly, about 160 EEs(Civil) posts are also vacant but the vacant posts of DEs/CAOs/EEs(Civil) are not being filled up on the pretext of pending court cases. From DE to DGM, CAO to DGM(Fin.) no court case is pending hence all these posts should be filled up immediately to meet the requirement of field units & to remove the stagnation in the career prospective of Group-'B' level executives. CMD appreciated our concern and assured to discuss the matter with Director(HR) for an early action.

We also requested for the implementation of 3rd PRC report with full fitment benefit in BSNL. CMD assured to look into the matter. It is understood that BSNL is submitting its feedback to DoT on 3rd PRC recommendations by tomorrow wherein BSNL is trying to provide 15% fitment benefit (highest fitment benefit) to BSNL executives on implementation of 3rd PRC. The HR Group of BSNL is actively involved in this process under the control of CGM(Legal), BSNL Corporate Office, New Delhi. AIBSNLEA is pursuing regularly at all the levels.

One Association's Advocate wanted to remand to case to be heard again in the Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam but BSNL's Sr. Advocate Sh. R.D. Aggarawalla opposed of remanding the case in view of further delay the case. He pleaded that there is acute stagnation in the career progression of JTOs and in BSNL field units the work is suffering due to the shortage of SDEs/SDOs.

17.02.2017:   Status report on 3rd PRC:

GS met with GM (SR) and discussed regarding the status of 3rd PRC recommendations with reference to BSNL. GM (SR) informed that after the presentation given by DoT to the Group of Secretaries meeting held on 02.02.2017 wherein DoT has been advised to submit  the financial  position of the PSUs under the control of DoT. Accordingly, DoT has asked the feedback / comments of BSNL by Monday in this regard which is being replied shortly.

 

It is understood that as per 3rd PRC interim report, if a PSU has 20 % liability of PBT on account of 3rd PRC implementation it may give 15% fitment, PSU having 30% liability of PBT on account of 3rd PRC implementation may give 10% fitment and PSU having 40% liability of PBT on account of 3rd PRC implementation may give 5% fitment benefit. At present BSNL's PBT is minus in %age.

 

In view of that we have pleaded 3rd PRC to take operational profit of a PSU instead of PBT into consideration.

Kamaraj delivered inaugural address. Com. Dhanuskodi, Com. Periasamy, Com. Subramanian, Com. Ramanathan, Com.

Delay in settlement of genuine HR issues causing frustration among the executives:  AIBSNLEA have been trying for the settlement of long pending HR issues in the several formal/informal meetings with the BSNL management but even after the written assurances given, none of the pressing issue has been settled till date. It has caused serious frustration among the executives .  One JTO recruited in the year 1995 and having completed 21 years of service in one cadre, one SDE of year 2000 have completed 16 years' service as SDE is waiting his second promotion to the post of DE. Similar is the situation in civil/Electrical/Arch/Telecom Factory, Engineering wings and Accounts & Finance wing of BSNL.  All these promotions stuck on the pretext of pending Court cases.  But these cases were never defended by BSNL seriously in the court  which resulted stalling the CPCs and stagnation in the career of executives.  The fact remains that wherever the management is serious the early settlement of the court case wherever they  take serious efforts and get immediate dispose off the case.  But our court cases are being handled in a routine manner.  In view of the growing frustration, BSNL management should defend all pending court cases with upmost priority and seriousness. Similar is the situation wherein all other HR issues lying unsettled ie. E-2,E-3 standard pay scales to JTO/SDE equivalent executives, CPSU cadre hierarchy implementation, First Time Bound promotion on 4 years of service in all cases,Rs.22820/- pay fixation to all the JTOs/JAOs, recruited post 2007, 30% superannuation benefit with 12% contribution from BSNL w.e.f 1.1.2007, posting of LDCE qualified JTO to  SDEs, restructuring of AD(O/L) cadre, PPS post creation with  all PGMs, E1+5  advance increments to JTO(SRD), JAO-2013 batch and PA cadre, E-5 to E-6 grade promotion to  DGM Adhoc under EPP, 50% diversion of MT quota CAO posts to seniority quota etc.

In the above important HR issues the E-2, E-3 standard pay scales to JTO and SDE equivalent executives, proposal is pending in DOT since for the last  3-4 months. Adl. Secy (T) has clearly mentioned in the file that E-1A and E-2A pay scales should be approved by Cabinet in BSNL and in future JTO/JAO equivalent  should be recruited in E-1 scale only.  BSNL management is yet to take up the matter with Secy. (T) for his kind intervention before 3rd PRC implementation otherwise it will put executives in huge financial loss while implementation of 3rd PRC.  CPSU cadre hierarchy proposed by Khan Committee has been  disagreed by BSNL pers cell and now a new CPSU cadre hierarchy is being drafted to ensure MT recruitment at STS level.

Hence the Khan committee recommendation on CPSU cadre hierarchy have been ignored.  The committee on Rs.2820/- pay fixation is under discussion but some members of the committee are yet to  change their view in support of this 22820/- implementation.  On 30% SAB, a trust has now been created with the untiring efforts of United Forum with 3% contribution but it has to increase up to 12% with the effective date of 1.1.2007.

The HR issues ie. LDCE qualified  JTOs posting as SDE(T)  after modification of SDE(RR) E1+5 advance increments to JTO(SRD) JAO-2013 batch and PA cadre, 50% MT (CAO) posts diversion to seniority quota etc. are yet to be cleared by the BSNL Board.  Like this many other HR issues also pending for settlement.  All these issues can be resolved when BSNL Management gives a serious thought on these issues.  Most of the issues remained pending for settlement on the pretext of membership verification and now two months are over after MV but none of the issue is towards settlement.  Now the recognized Association has also the responsibility to ensure for early settlement of all the pressing HR issues on priority rather than threatening and harming the members   of other  Associations.

a)  CPC from JTO(T) to SDE (T): We expressed our serious concern against non filling up of the vacant SDEs (T) (about 8000 posts) on the pretext of pending court cases.  PGM (Pers) appreciated our concern and informed that tomorrow the  case is coming for hearing in the Hon'ble High Court  Kerala and it is expected that stay on promotion will be vacated.  Shri.R.D.

b)  CPC from SDE to DE, AO to CAO: We requested to  expedite CPCs to fill up all the vacant CAOs and DEs Posts.  PGM (Pers) informed that CPCs work is in progress and a SLP has been prepared to be filed in the Hon'ble Supreme Court just after the return of Sh.R.D. Aggarwalla from Kerala.

GS, FS, AGS (HQ) and AGS (Finance) met with Director (HR) in the presence of GM (SR) and discussed regarding:

(i) Harassment & Victimization of AIBSNEA Office Bearers: We expressed our serious concern against the harassment of AIBSNLEA members by the Office Bearers / Members of SNEA in some circles in day to day work. In the capacity of immediate superior executives, who are incidentally our members, are assigning work to their subordinate executives, who happen to be the office bearers / members of SNEA they are  threatening and making gheros of their immediate superior executive who is our member and harassing by making abusing words and false complaints. We quoted recently held some incidences in Punjab Circle, Karnataka Circle, Gujarat Circle etc. Director (HR) immediately directed GM (SR) to take the report from the concern Circle Heads and to take immediate action to ensure discipline in the organization.

We also informed Director (HR) that in some circles vindicating actions are being taken by the Management by the way of issuing show cause notice against participation in peaceful demonstrative actions on the call of United Forum even after calling off the said demonstrative action programs on 06.01.2017 after the cordial meeting with Director (HR). We requested to stop such type of vindictive action to prevail harmony in the interest of BSNL. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter.

(ii)  Problems being faced by the members of AIBSNLEA in completing the subscription deduction form: We informed that in the field units some immediate superior / counter signing officers on the format of subscription deduction are pressing our members to fill up the form of a particular association to whom they belongs. Hence, our members are being terrorized under the threat of spoiling their careers / APAR in case they do not fill up the form as per their direction. Hence, we requested to remove the column of counter sign from the format since executives are well educated and well known to the management. Director (HR) immediately directed GM (SR) to modify the said format immediately to avoid such incidences and to allow to prevail democracy in the organization. 

(iii) Extension of some facilities to AIBSNLEA for its smooth functioning: We requested for granting some facilities to AIBSNLEA for its smooth functioning in day to day working. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter.

(iv) Implementation of E2 & E3 standard pay scales to JTO & SDE equivalent executives: We requested for the implementation of E2 & E3 standard pay scales to JTO & SDE equivalent executives in BSNL by getting an early approval of DoT. Director(HR) mentioned that matter is pending in DoT wherein AST has already proposed to send the proposal of approving E1A & E2A pay scales in BSNL & E1 pay scale to future JTOs/JAOs. She assured that CMD will be discussing this matter with Secy(T) shortly so that issue is resolved before notification of 3 PRC report.

(v) Allowing option to exercise 10%quota JAOs: We requested to issue order in respect of JAOs recruited through 10% quota at par with JAOs-2010 batch of 40% quota. GM(FP) was present in the meeting and assured to process the case for settlement.

(vi) Settlement of the long pending HR issues: We requested for the settlement of the long pending HR issues which are already approved by the BSNL MC through the committee of HR group of DoT & BSNL. Director (HR) informed that in the last HR group of DoT & BSNL officers meeting held on 19.01.2017 could discuss only HR Plan of BSNL and still discussions are to take place in this regard in this month itself by this committee. Thereafter only, this committee will consider all the pending HR issues which are linked HR Plan of BSNL i.e. Modification in SDE RR, Diversion of 50% MT Quota Posts of CAOs to seniority quota, E1+5 increments benefits to the JAO Batch 2013, JTO SRD and PA Cadre etc. We further requested for early considerations.

(vii) CPCs to fill up the vacant DE/CAO/EE (C) vacant posts: We expressed our concern against non filling up of the vacant posts of the DE/CAO/EE (C) cadres on the pretext of pending court cases. Director (HR) immediately spoke to PGM (Pers.) and directed him to immediately file SLP in the Hon'ble Supreme Court against the judgment of Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh as per the advice of the ASG by the next week itself to remove the statement in the CPCs. 

01.02.2017:   Meeting with PGM (Pers.)

GS met with PGM (Pers.) and discussed regarding:

A Restructuring of CSS cadre in BSNL. We requested to restructure the CSS cadre in BSNL by way of creating some more DGM / Jt. GM Posts in BSNL.

01.02.2017:   GS AIBSNLEA, GS AIGETOA and GS AITEEA met Smt. A. Panda, PGM (PF-II) and Chairman of the committee and discussed the issue of Pay parity for the executives recruited post 01.01.2007. It was explained that the matter needs a considerate and holistic view. It was explained to the chairman of the committee that the executives recruited post 01.01.2007 are facing a huge pay loss on account of non-extension of 22820/- as initial basic. The loss of these executives is going to multiply manifold with inception of 3rd PRC benefits. We explained the technicalities associated with the issue. The chairman was apprised of the fact that such type of relaxations have been done earlier also in the case of Direct recruits and so the same should be extended in case of the executives recruited Post 01.01.2007.

We further pleaded that the option allowed on pay fixation on promotion after 07.05.2010 to the departmental JAOs of 2010 batch is completely justified. PGM (PF-II) appreciated our concern and mentioned that this case was justified and as per rule.

We requested Chairman of the committee that FR should be relaxed for fixing Rs. 22820/- as minimum basic of JTOs/JAOs recruited post 01.01.2007 as done on several occasions earlier.

United forum has submitted one more representation on the pay parity issue of executives recruited post 01.01.2007. <<<<Click here for the representation>>>>

5.                 Implementation of CPSU Hierarchy in line with Khan Committee Report:

It was brought to the notice of Director (HR) that how Personnel cell can formulate CPSU policy without taking into account our inputs as United Forum represents a major group in BSNL and the BSNL recruited executives shall be the most effected persons with this policy. We categorically told that any compromise with the interests of the executives shall result into protest both through organizational actions as well as legally. Director (HR) appreciated the concern and instructed GM (SR) & PGM (Pers) that input of United Forum should also be taken into account and CPSU Policy shouldn?t be finalized without the concurrence of United Forum leaders. The related approval in this regard may be obtained from her in the file.

Only the concurrence of the members of the HR committee is required. It was informed to us that due to non-availability of JS (Admin), DoT because of his busy schedule, the same is withheld. We requested Director (HR) for her intervention in convening the meeting urgently which will pave the way of issue of promotion order of the LDCE-2015 qualified candidates. She assured that she will intervene personally to convene the meeting at the earliest. The whole process will tried to be completed in January?2017.

 

7.                 Immediate conduction of CPCs in all disciplines:

10.            Notional Pay fixation of all upgraded pay scales w.e.f 1.10.2000 of JTO/SDE (C/E)/Arch/TF) and PA cadre: 

We requested to settle the issue by giving parity with JTO (T)/SDE (T) in this regard as while upgrading these cadres the parity w.r.t pay, qualification and designation have already been given.  It should not be relate with the JEs/AEs of Railway and CPWD departments as MC suggested.  Director (HR) assured to discuss the matter with PGM (Estt.) for an early solution.

On these issues Director(HR) mentioned that  all the pending HR issues approved by BSNL MC will be discussed by the  Committee formed by DOT comprising Jt.Secy. (Admn), DDG (TPF), Director (CM) and Director (HR) and shortly clearance from BSNL Board will be taken.

United Forum of BSNL Executives' Associations comprising AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA & AITEEA deferred the ongoing agitational programme in response to the positive attitude and concern shown by BSNL Management for the settlement of the demands in the meeting held on 06.01.2017 at 15.30 hrs.  <<<<Click here for deferment letter of UF to BSNL Management>>>>>  <<<Click here for SR Cell letter>>>>>

03.01.2017:   BSNL Corporate Office issued order regarding grant of the facility of deduction of subscription to AIBSNLEA the support association in BSNL <<<<Click here for order>>>

Implement Dilli Chalo / Work According to Rule and non Cooperation programme successfully: United Forum of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA call of agitation programme of Dilli Chalo / Work According to Rule and Non-Cooperation programme implement successfully in 100% participation to protest against non settlement of the important pending HR issues, non recognizing AIBSNLEA in 17 Telecom Circles where it won with majority votes and against the indifferent, biased & vindictive attitude of the BSNL Management.

All the Circle Secretaries are requested to immediately send the number of candidates reaching Delhi w.e.f 10th Jan.2017 onwards to CHQ immediately for their proper arrangements.

Sh. T.C. Jain, Financial Secretary and Sh. Rajpal, AGS(Fin.) may be informed accordingly.

Dear Comrades,

At the Outset, AIBSNLEA Wishes all the members of the Executive Fraternity of BSNL, a very happy and prosperous New Year 2017. We wish you all the success in the year 2017 and sincerely hope that at least now BSNL management will rise up to the occasion and settle the long pending HR issues.

This is another matter that Director (HR) and Her Team has started the year with another series of vindictive actions against the leadership of the constituent partner of United Forum i.e. AIGETOA by issuing show cause notices under Section 5(27) and Rule 22 to Finance Secretary AIGETOA and Joint Secretary (North), AIGETOA for pursuing the matter of Ex-General Secretary AIGETOA - Shri R P Shahu with a charge that they have undesirably met Director (HR) on 25.11.2016 and sought the status report in respect of disposal of disciplinary cases against Shri R P Shahu.

It is pertinent to mention that as General Secretaries of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA were away on tour, Joint Secretary and Finance Secretary AIGETOA met Director (HR) on Friday, the 25th November 2016, Evening  after taking due permission from her through her PS to discuss the status on the assurance issued by SR cell vide letter no. BSNL/7-9/SR/2016 dated 23rd November 2016 wherein it was stated that the decision on the same shall be taken within a week. The Joint Secretary and Finance Secretary were asked to Meet Director (HR) by the General Secretaries as per directions of CMD BSNL in the meeting on 23rd November 2016 to discuss the matter after 2-3 days.  Based on the assurance, the joint agitation program was withdrawn.

Now, the Management is showing its true colors and are trying to come up with vindictive and Coercive actions. They are trying to impose upon a virtual GAG order on United Forum with active support from the antagonists of United Forum.

So Comrades! Time has come to respond to such arm twisting techniques by Director (HR) and her Team. Unless we Strike hard... our issues are not going to see the light of the day?We Again repeat what we posted some days back:

"Its Now or Never? Its Today or No day? Its at this point of time or no time?.Its time to show our unity?Its time to show that we care.. Its time to show that We exist?Its time to show that We are there.. there for our rights?"

We know that Management is after us like anything... We know that Management will not resolve the things so easily?We know that We have been marked at Point blank....but we will not relent?. ?We are not worried because We know that it is our fight?It is our resolve... It is our destiny?.We will achieve it.. Let Management come and Finish us?.Let Management come and Hit us? Let Management come forward with their agenda? We will reply with our struggle?

Today, we are into warzone?From here we don't have to look backwards?We have to move forward...We have to conquer and conquer at all costs... even at the cost of ourselves?.

Dear Comrades,  Kindly book the tickets to New Delhi so that one and all can reach BSNL CO on 10th January 2017 at 11:00 AM.

Further, also ensure the success of the work according to rule and non-cooperation program -

There is no room for being complacent?There is no room for being Hesitant?There is no room for being ignorant because if you don't come up now?it will be never for all of us??.

So ONE and ALL Participate ? EN- Masse ---

10th January ? "Delhi Chalo" for Indefinite Dharna at BSNL CO

Let us, fight for the settlement of long pending HR issues against killing of democracy by not recognizing number - 1 majority executive association to AIBSNLEA, who won 17 Circles and majority of SSAs and to fight against the indifferent biased and vindictive attitude of the BSNL Management.

Dear Comrades

United Forum of Executive Associations consisting of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA thanks one and all for coming forward and supporting the movement against killing of democracy and resolution of the long pending HR issues pertaining to BSNL executives.

Comrades, contrary to the congratulatory messages floated on the website of the sister association, the situation is different in reality. The burning issue of extending Standard Pay Scales of E-2 and E-3 in place of non-standard E1A and E2A is slowly dying a death at DoT with hand in gloves approach of Management and the sister association. DoT has not moved an inch from its earlier stand of sending  the proposal to the Cabinet of approving E1A and E2A. The only way it was possible was through merger of Sr. SDE and SDE scales. That was not allowed by the so called warrior association for reasons of heart burn. DoT is not in mood to replace even the initial two scales and if we don?t fight it out now, the issue will be killed forever.  Without struggle, this issue is not going to see the light of the day. So, if we really want the issues to be resolved, we have to come forward and show our might.

The crocodile tears of the Association singing Majority - Majority tune is now visible to one and all. They have claimed that the committee was formed at their insistence. While the same association was some days back claiming that 22820 cannot be given without achieving E2. United Forum of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA worked tirelessly for this issue and when there was some development, the claimants came forward and claimed it as their achievement and SR cell also came forward and issued minutes for the testimony of the falsified achievement. This shows that the friendly association instead of becoming representative association of executives, have become the spokes persons of Management Side.

All the write-ups on their website are showing that they have achieved moon but the fact remains that nothing is being done and whatever initiation is being done because of sincere efforts of the United Forum, the management and their representative association leaves no stone unturned for derailing that. .

Resolution of Rule-8 cases is another glaring example where these so called majority-majority singers have been trying to block the efforts taken by United Forum at CO and Circle level. All they are interested is to retain these executives in their current circle so that their Leadership keep on enjoying the fruits on the heads of the innocent executives waiting to go to their parent circle. Similar is the case of DPC and LDCE, where they have been instrumental in blocking the issuance of orders just to keep executives running for their long awaited promotion.

So Comrades, struggle is the only option and the only solution.   WE HAVE TO COME FORWARD AND RISE TO CALL OF THE TIME.

SO MAKE EXTENSIVE PREPARATIONS FOR SUCCESS OF THE PROTEST ACTION PROGRAM AND MAKE IT SUCCESSFUL ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. IT?S A DO OR DIE SITUATION FOR ALL OF US AND THERE IS NO ROOM FOR COMPLACENCY.

ITS NOW OR NEVER.

26.12.2016:   Agitation Call given by the United Forum of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA & AITEEA:

26.12.2016:   Meeting with RLC (C) New Delhi:

GS, AGS (HQ) along with GS, AIGETOA and GS, AITEEA attended the meeting called by the RLC(C), New Delhi on the issue of the Notice for protest and organizational action program against the delay in settlement of burning HR issue. DGM (SR), along with DGM (Estt.) and AGM (SR) represented the Management side. We categorically mentioned that our intention by way of agitation is just to attract the attention of apex management toward the issues which are pending since long and the management is not holding discussions & taking decision.

 

Representatives from Management side were not in a position right now to commit anything about the steps/decisions to be taken on the issues.

 

During discussions RLC(C) mentioned that protest actions i.e. Dharnas, Demonstrations are your democratic right to attract the attention of the management and management should discuss and take decision on the issues.

 

RLC (C) then advised the representatives to ensure that the existing industrial relations status of the organization is not derailed at any cost. Management may also take appropriate steps/decisions in order to resolve the issue. Both the parties are advised to adhere the Section 22 and Section 33 of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947.

26.12.2016:   Implement Agitation Call given by United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations: 100% Participation in two Days Dharna (i.e. 27th and 28th Dec., 2016) at SSA/Circle and BSNL CO level  - BSNL Management with an indifferent and callous attitude is ignoring the settlement of genuine demands of BSNL Executives. Many important HR issues are unsettled due to the total negligent attitude of the management. AIBSNLEA has won 17 Circles and majority of SSAs during Membership Verification but has not been given recognition of majority executive association , hence the democracy has been killed. Against this onslaught, United Forum has given the call of agitation, it is the situation of do or die.

All the CHQ Office bearers, Circle/Branch Secretaries are requested  to implement the organizational action program by 100% participation successfully.

21.12.2016:   Cadre Review of Indian Telecommunications Service, Group ?'

The Cabinet on Wednesday approved the Cadre Review of Indian Telecommunications Service, Group ?'.

The proposal has the following salient features:

(a). Creation of one Apex level post of Director General of Telecom.
(b). The number of Duty posts has been fixed as 853.
(c). A Deputation Reserve of 310 posts has been provided for deputation of ITS officers to other Departments / organizations.
(d). A special diminishing reserve has been provided for posting of ITS officers in BSNL/MTNL.
(e). Cadre strength restricted to the present working strength of 1690.
 

The approval would result in strengthening of the cadre structure both at the DoT headquarters and in the field units on the basis of functional requirement. It will also meet the requirement of skilled manpower in BSNL/MTNL. This will reduce the existing stagnation of ITS officers.

Indian Telecom Service Group 'A" was constituted in 1965 to meet the policy, technical and managerial functions of the government in areas related to telecommunications. Selected through Engineering Services examination conducted by Union Public Service Commission, the officers of ITS are working in management and administrative positions in the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and its PSUs (BSNL, MTNL and TCIL), Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Telecom Dispute Settlement Administrative Tribunal (TDSAT), and also in other Central Ministries/ Departments/ Autonomous Bodies and State governments on deputation.

These facts coupled with the stagnation in various grades of the service necessitated a review of the structure of ITS.

The Cadre Strength has been restricted to the present working strength of the cadre, and the cadre review would entail no fresh financial commitment for Government.

21.12.2016:   GS, AGS (HQ), AGS (F) and GS, AITEEA met GM (FP) and discussed regarding:

 

A. CPCs from AO to CAO and JAO to AO: We requested to expedite CPCs from AO to CAO and initiate CPC from JAO to AO. GM (FP) informed that ACRs of the eligible AOs are being collected from Circles with the screening report to expedite the CPC. On the issue of JAO to AO CPC. GM (FP) mentioned that after CAO CPC, against the resultant vacancies of the CAOs the CPC from JAO to AO will be initiated to fill-up all vacant AO posts. We requested to initiate the CPC from HJAO to AO immediately since more than 1000 AO vacancies are already available. We also requested for calling the VCRs of AOs from CVO.

 

B. Settlement regarding Pay Parity issue of Direct Recruited JTO of 2007 & 2008 batches in the light of 2nd PRC: We requested for the settlement of Pay Parity issue of Direct Recruited JTO of 2007 & 2008 batches in the light of 2nd PRC. GM (FP) mentioned that in case of future committee, if the opinion or comments of FP cell are desired, we will give a positive note in this regard.

 

C. Consideration of request / tenure transfers of AOs/CAOs/DGM (F): We requested for consideration of request / tenure transfers of AOs/ CAOs/ DGM (F). GM (FP) assured to look into.

  

D. Training of newly recruited JAOs: We requested for an early training of newly recruited JAOs posted in Haryana Circle. GM (FP) assured to look into it earliest.

21.12.2016:   Meeting with GM (Estt):

GS, AGS (HQ), AGS (F) and GS, AITEEA along with CS AIGETOA, BSNL CO met GM (Estt) and discussed regarding the replacement of Intermediate Pay Scale E1A & E2A by Standard Pay Scale E2 & E3. We requested:

 

That it is high time for BSNL management to pursue the replacement of Intermediate Pay Scale E1A & E2A by Standard Pay Scales E2 & E3 respectively with a maximum residency period of 5 years in any scale/grade as per existing Executive Promotion Policy (EPP)-2007.This proposal will have minimum financial implications.

 

Replacement of E1A scale by E2 in Food Corporation of India (FCI) has been implemented successfully despite having a substantive post at E2.It could be a glaring & pertinent example/way to deal with such a situation. Fortunately in BSNL, there is no substantive post at E3 level; therefore the replacement of Intermediate Pay Scale E1A & E2A by Standard Pay Scales E2 & E3 respectively in BSNL is more rational & easier to implement.

 

After applying above proposal, anomaly, if any arises, may be dealt separately after due discussions & deliberations.

 

GM (Estt) informed that the proposal for replacement of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 and keeping one executive in E3 grade for ten years and to maintain five promotion under EPP is being send to DoT immediately. We strongly opposed the proposal of keeping one executive in E3 grade for ten years. In this regard GM (Estt) further informed that the recognized executive association [SNEA (I)] has agreed with the proposal for keeping one executive for ten years and keeping five promotions intact.

 

It is understood that this proposal has been placed in the Management Committee of BSNL Board today and after its approval it will immediately will be sent to DoT for consideration and approval.

21.12.2016:   Misleading spread out by SNEA (I) on their website regarding implementation of E-2 and E-3 IDA Pay Scales

On implementation of E-2 and E-3 IDA Pay Scales, AIBSNLEA has been demanding immediate replacement of E-1A & E-2A IDA Pay Scales by standard E-2 and E-3 IDA Pay Scales. The same demand was raised by GS, AIBSNLEA with Addl. Secretary (Telecom), DoT on 14.12.2016 in the presence of all the GSs of BSNL Unions/Associations. AST never asked specifically from GS, AIBSNLEA but he was explaining the DoT stand on this issue. AIBSNLEA is not there to support the demand of SNEA (I) for keeping one executive in E-3 scale for 10 years and against this AIBSNLEA will protest. Let, DoT immediately implement E-2 and E-3 Pay Scales for JTO/SDE equivalent executives in BSNL. SNEA (I) should stop misguiding the executives in this regard.

 16.12.2016:     

 Dear comrades,

 

Membership verification of Executive Association is over but against the killing of the democracy by BSNL Management wherein AIBSNLEA even after winning of 17 circles with majority votes has been declared as support association is not accepted.  Against this our struggle will continue in BSNL.  Already united Forum of BSNL executives Associations comprising AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and  AITEEA  has served a notice for organisational action programme commencing w.e.f  20th December 2016 against the non settlement of pending HR issues pertaining to pay, promotion and pension of the executives.  AIBSNLEA has secured 18377 votes during membership verification and has emerged as the second largest executive association. Hence it is the duty and responsibility of AIBSNLEA to protect the interest of these large numbers of executives.  In the name of recognised association we can't allow one association to play with the carrier of thousands of our members.  We have equal rights to protect the interest of our members and management cannot ignore our strength.  Hence, we are determined and committed to get resolved all important HR issues pertaining to pay, promotion and pension  of the executives. Let us be united under the umbrella of United Forum of BSNL executives Association comprising AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA to struggle and get settled the legitimate demands.   Unity is strength.  Some vested interests will always  try to break our unity but with our strong commitment and conviction of unity give them befitting reply by not allowing to weaken our unity. 

16.12.2016:    Misleading information given by one Association after the membership verification

On 14-12-2016, in continuation to the discussion on Tower Subsidiary issue with AST/DOT, the issue of replacement of Intermediate E1A and E2A scales by E2 and E3 was raised only by GS, AIBSNLEA and not by any other leader as claimed by GS, SNEA on his website.  AST replied that he is taking up the issue for approval of E1A and E-2A from Cabinet for those executives who have been recruited in E-1A and E-2A pay scales and the JTO/JAOs recruited subsequently will get E-1 scale only. 

 

Against this, GS AIBSNLEA pleaded that E-1A and E-2A scales were already approved by the DPE during 1st PRC and now E-1A and E-2A scales should immediately be replaced by E-2 and E-3 Standard Pay scales.  AST mentioned that in case E-1A and E-2A scales are replaced by E-2 and E-3 scales then there  is a  legal right of revision of E-3 by E-4, E-4 by E-5, E-5 by E-6,  E-6 by E-7, E-7 by E-8, E-8 by E-9 & E-9 by E-9A and he is fully convinced with this legal aspect.  Hence, DOT will sent both the proposals first to approve E-1A and E-2A intermediate Pay scales after 2nd PRC for those JTOs/JAOs equivalent who have been recruited in E-1A scales and the second proposal as per the BSNL's proposal to replace all the pay scales to the cabinet for consideration and approval.  We pleaded that sending the proposal will delay the matter hence, DOT should settle the scales in DOT itself.  AIBSNLEA strongly pleaded that since initial two scales of E1A and E2A are provisional and hence immediate replacement of E-1A &E-2A pay scales by standard pay scales of E-2 and E-3 is the necessity of the hour and all other scales can be decided subsequently. The issue was raised by the AIBSNLEA only in the said meeting with AST while the so called majority Association didn't prefer to raise the issue in that meetingAIBSNLEA is committed for replacement of E-1A and E-2A scales by Standard E-2 and E-3 pay scales by DOT before 3rd PRC. AIBSNLEA strongly protested against the degradation of the scales with AST?s proposal to give E-1 pay scales to JTOs/JAOs.  It will degrade the status of JTO/JAO cadre in BSNL.  We expressed our firm opinion on replacing of initial two scales leaving aside all other scales and anomalies. Those claiming to be the saviours are actually the proponents of Cascading and intentionally they are passing the buck on other associations. Even after MV, they have not come out of the MV fever and still trying to befool the executives by claiming that they are doing everything while in actuality doing nothing except raising the false propaganda. We can understand their problem. They tried to suppress the information for reasons best known to them and when we apprised members of the actual position, they are just into the cover up mode. Even a small child will not accept this claim that somebody did not posted the information as there was strike. How strike stops somebody from sharing the full information while information pertaining to Tower Subsidiary was uploaded without any delay.

 

The issue to release of recently held JE Examination was raised by the leaders of non-executive unions wherein AST expressed his ignorance but assured to look in to the matter
