11.06.2018 Core Committee Members meeting with CMD BSNL:

CMD BSNL called a meeting of the core committee members of all Unions and Associations wherein Comrade GS along with core committee members i.e. GS.BSNLEU, GS/NFTE and GS/SNEA attended the meeting. CMD BSNL mentioned that joint efforts of BSNL Management and all employees are required to increase the revenue of BSNL.

CFA segment: He mentioned that Broad-band connections surrender is taking place due to speed limit constraints and FTTH growth is also not much. He further mentioned that we should explain the customers that Broad-band copper market is not for speed, it is for download wherein maximum 2Mbps to 20Mbps. The tariff under Rs. 99 Plan 70 GB down load is available for speed purpose Mbps Plan through FTTH should be recommended wherein the Exchange to Subscriber premises wireless network is being created on revenue sharing basis through channel partners immediately. CAPEX will be arranged to have our own wireless system.

Cable TV operators (Local TV) are also facing threat from JIO and now we will make them cannel partner on 50:50 revenue sharing basis. In this manner the Brad band target has now been increased to 20 times.

CM Segment: CMD mentioned that in CM segment 40% revenue has gone down which has affected cash flow. The main reason is that BSNL don’t have 4G spectrum and metro cities lie Delhi & Mumbai. Now BSNL decided to deal directly with retailers along-with franchises.  The commission will be paid 12% whereas Reliance JIO is giving 9% and Airtel 5%. Proper monitoring system on retailers is very much required. Recently BSNL has signed an MoU with Patanjali Group and now offering a special plan of Rs. 144 with unlimited voice, 1.5GB data per day to all Patanjali card holders. Through this we should capture the market.

EB Segment: CMD informed that last year our revenue growth was positive in this segment by providing maximum lease line circuits after 7-8 months JIO is also entering in this field. To compete with now BSNL officers have to leave their rooms and go for marketing.  And this moment is known “KAMRA CHODO - Leave the Rooms”. In this manner, CMD clarified that BSNL has to increase its revenue without depending on Govt support. At this stage, we can not ask Govt support in view of the implementation of 3rd PRC. We assured to discuss the matter and mobilize the employees in this regard.

Incentive to BSNL employees and BSNL pensioners: CMD informed that we are finalizing an incentive scheme under Marketing Cell to the BSNL employees and BSNL pensioners for selling the BSNL brands and to become channel partners.

07.06.2018 Judgment dated 05.06.2018 in OP (CAT) No.45/2015 pronounced by Hon’ble High Court of Kerala in matter of the inter-se seniority list of JTOs:

Certified copy of the judgment has been received by AIBSNLEA through its advocate.

<<Click here for the certified copy of the judgment>>

 

Stand of AIBSNLEA on the judgment pronounced by Hon’ble High Court of Kerala on 05.06.2017 in the matter of JTO to SDE promotions:

1. Hon’ble High Court Kerala is of the view that the pragmatic way of fixing seniority of the departmental JTOs and Direct Recruit JTOs would be reckon date of appointment as regards to the Direct Recruits and the date of promotion as regard to the promotes, once they successfully complete the training and then interpose them in the seniority list in accordance with the rotation of quotas, reckoning their due seniority or position in their respective list of appointment or order of promotion. In such circumstances the direct recruits are entitled to be considered for inclusion in the seniority list only after their actual entry in service and they could not make any claim to the un-filled quota of direct recruits during the period 1996 to 2001.   

2 the final seniority list by BSNL has to be finalized with in a period of six months from the date of receipts of the copy of this judgment on the above mentioned principal.

3 It will be open for BSNL to effect promotion against the unfilled vacancies of SDE equalling distributing the vacancy amongst the senior most directly recruited JTOs and senior most promote JTO subject to finalization of the final eligibility list of JTOs.   

 

In view of the above, AIBSNLEA feels that BSNL Management can immediately expedite CPC from JTO to SDE (T) SCF quota from the departmental JTOs of the vacancy year 1996 to 2001 and thereafter from a consolidated list of equally distributing departmental JTOs and direct recruit JTOs in 1:1 ratio.  Accordingly about 4500 departmental JTO will immediately be promoted along with direct recruited JTOs of the year 2002 Batch and SC/ST upto 2005 Batch. Thus BSNL Management should initiate and expedite CPC.

 

Before implementation of the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, if above promotions orders are issued there will be no dispute of seniority which will avoid further litigations.

04.06.2018 Status on the JTO to SDE promotion case in Hon'ble High Court of Kerala:

The case on JTO to SDE promotions was listed for hearing in Hon'ble High Court of Kerala today but could not be taken-up due to paucity of time. Now the case is listed for tomorrow at 16.15 Hrs.

04.06.2018 Misleading information by AIGETOA against AIBSNLEA posted on their website dated 30.05.2018.

 

AIGETOA in their website as updated on 30.05.2018 the GS AIBSNLEA falsely indicated AIGETOA name about the Allahabad court case and un-necessarily bothered Director (HR) for the reasons best known to him. This update on AIGETOA CHQ website is false and un-called for a responsible Association without verifying the facts. The fact remains that AIBSNLEA CHQ Office Bearers had meeting with Director (HR) in the presence of GM (Pers.) and demanded to issue JTO to SDE (T) SCF quota promotions also since these JTOs are waiting for their first promotion since 1995 JTO Recruitment year. Director (HR) appreciated our concern and asked GM (Pers.) to explain the bottle neck in the promotion of JTO to SDE (T) SCF quota, if any. GM (Pers) explained that the court case in the Hon’ble High Court, Kerala has been listed for pronouncement of the judgment on 4th June 2018 and one more court case stay order is pending in the Hon’ble High Court Allahabad and  in this regard yesterday GS AIGETOA has assured him to get withdraw the court case by tomorrow itself. After hearing this reply Director (HR) immediately spoke with CGMT Kerala Circle and directed him to take all the efforts through BSNL’s advocate to get the judgment pronounced on 4th June itself wherein CGMT Kerala Circle assured her to get the judgment pronounced on 4th June 2018. Just after this, Director (HR) immediately called the GS AIGETOA in her chamber and advised him to ensure withdrawal of court case from Allahabad High Court by tomorrow itself and GS AIGETOA assured for its compliance by tomorrow. During these discussions, AIBSNLEA CHQ Office Bearers were present but they did not interact in between and never implicate the name of AIGETOA in it. Both the above actions of Director (HR) were based on the feedback given by the GM (Pers) only. Thus the allegation of GS AIGETOA against GS AIBSNLEA is false and uncalled for.

 

AIBSNLEA is working and safe guarding the interests of entire BSNL executive’s community in true sense which can be witnessed since its inception in the year 2004. AIBSNLEA need not to learn the functioning from the friendly Association. With the untiring efforts of AIBSNLEA only the BSNL Management decided to initiate CPCs to fill-up the vacant Group “B” and Group “A” level posts (up to DGM level) and after this decision, AIBSNLEA promptly persuaded to issue promotion orders wherever it is immediately possible. About 2000 LDCE qualified JTOs were waiting for their posting on promotions due to SC/ST Roster implementation court case and SDE RR modifications. BSNL Management responded positive to our demand and immediately issued modified SDE RRs. These two decisions paved the way to issue promotion orders of LDCE passed JTOs to the post of SDE (T) and accordingly, Management issued the promotion orders of 1987 SDEs of LDCE quota.

 

To continue the process, AIBSNLEA emphasized BSNL Management to speed up CPCs work to fill-up all vacant SDE/AO and DE/CAO equivalent posts before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. Whereas, the fact remains that the so called joint forum is continuously pressurizing BSNL Management for immediate implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy without holding of CPCs. The executives can analyse the truth with the ongoing developments for the last three years where more than 2000 LDCE qualified JTOs were waiting for their SDE promotion and the 4500 JTOs are waiting for the last 22 years for their first promotion to SDE cadre under SCF quota.

 

WHAT THESE MIGHTY ASSOCIATIONS WERE DOING FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS? Now every body is trying to take the credit for the promotions, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy etc when these are becoming reality. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy was demanded by AIBSNLEA in the year 2011 where a committee headed by Shri S.R. Kapoor, the then PGM (FP) was constituted thereafter again another committee headed by the then PGM (SR) Shri N.K. Narang was constituted but both the committees failed to submit the report. Thereafter, a new committee headed by the then ED (NB) Shri M.A, Khan was constituted wherein AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA were the members from Association side and after many marathon meetings the committee report was submitted which was twisted by Pers Cell BSNL Corporate Office in close coordination with the so called majority Association after referendum and with the support of their associate Association of Joint Forum. But, with the timely action taken by AIBSNLEA, many important modifications / improvements were incorporated in the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. AIBSNLEA always demanded cut-off date from the last CPC or from the year of recruitment and some more issues but BSNL Board approved it with prospective date of implementation which AIBSNLEA protested and demanded immediate holding of CPCs to fill up the vacant SDE/AO, DE/CAO and equivalent posts before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy to save the executives from humiliation because after CPSU cadre Hierarchy implementation all the existing RRs and posts of Group “B” and STS equivalent will be abolished and  under new promotion policy. Under this CPSU Cadre Hierarchy these SDEs/ AOs equivalent executives are first to be promoted to the functional post of Sr. SDE/ Sr. AO equivalent and thereafter to the post of DE/CAO. It will further stagnate the existing SDEs and AOs who are waiting for their DE/CAO promotion.

 

Whether the so called joint forum leaders are not aware of the facts that BSNL Management is intending to notify MT Recruitment simultaneously with the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy? If known, why they are hiding this fact from their members? Since they claim that they were involved in the process of finalization of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and what is their stand now?

 

AIBSNLEA has cleared its view to the BSNL Management on all the occasions whether it is during discussions or in writing to oppose MT Recruitment at STS level. Thus AIBSNLEA in true sense trying to protect the interest of entire executive community in BSNL rather than playing with the career prospects of executives in BSNL. Let the executives be understand the game plan of the so called Joint Forum Associations from the above facts.

01.06.2018 Pers. Cell of BSNL Corporate Office, New Delhi issued instructions to update the status of executives in ERP on or before 06.06.2018 since the process for Promotion to different grades of all executives / Streams is in active consideration.

30.05.2018 Issue of Additional Increment on regular promotion to a scale.

BSNL Corporate Office today circulated a copy of the DoT letter number 40-12/2004-Pen(T) (Pt.) dated 17.05.2017 for compliance by all units of BSNL. According to this letter, in order to process the pension case an undertaking from the retiring BSNL employees may be obtained to the effect that in case the court cases filed against the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 are decided in favour of DoT, the retiree shall refund the over-paid amount on account of grant of an extra-increment on post based promotion under the EPP of BSNL.

Since, the case for quashing the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 has been filed and won by AIBSNLEA but DoT continued to reduce the pay before retirement. Against that AIBSNLEA file a Contempt Petition in the Hon'ble PBCAT New Delhi. Notices have been issued to the respondents. The Contempt case is posted for hearing on 16.07.2018. In response to this, DoT has issued the letter as above to the CCAs now to fix-up the pension after taking an undertaking without reduction of the pay.

30.05.2018 Meeting with Director (HR), BSNL Board, New Delhi:

 

GS, President met Director (HR), BSNL Board and expressed serious resentment against non holding of CPCs to fill up the vacant Group-‘A' and Group-‘B' equivalent posts in BSNL and demanded that before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy all the existing executives in JTO/JAO, SDE/AO and DE/CAO equivalent cadres should be promoted to the next higher vacant posts under the existing RRs. Non holding of CPCs before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy will cause serious frustration and resentment among the existing executives who are waiting their due promotions for the last many years. Director (HR), BSNL Board immediately called  GM (Pers.) and discussed the matter in detail. The cadre wise details are as under:-

 

Promotion from JTO to SDE (T) SCF quota : We requested Director (HR) to direct Pers. Cell to initiate CPCs by calling of APARs and VCs of the eligible candidates to fill up the vacant Group-'B' posts in the cadre of SDE (T). GM (Pers.) apprised that the court case in Hon'ble  High Court Kerala has been posted for pronouncement of Judgement on 1st or 4th June, 2018 and one another stay order on promotion has been granted by Hon'ble CAT Allahabad in a case filed by some DR JTOs.

Director (HR) immediately spoke with CGMT Kerala Circle and directed him to pursue in Hon'ble High Court for early pronouncement of the Judgement and called GS, AIGETOA and advised him to immediately withdraw the court case in the Hon'ble CAT Allahabad since she has already issued LDCE quota promotion orders. She categorically mentioned that in my family I can't see that some persons are happy and some others are unhappy and demoralized. GS AIGETOA assured Director (HR) that by tomorrow the court case in Hon'ble CAT Allahabad will be withdrawn. She further directed GM (Pers.) to initiate the process to promote about 4500 eligible JTOs to the post of SDE (T) with existing RRs. GM (Pers.) assured to issue promotion orders shortly.

 

Promotion from SDE (T) to DE (T): GM (Prs.) apprised that at present there is a dispute among the SDEs(T) on seniority list no. 6 & 7 which is to be sorted out. Director (HR) asked him that how many DE vacancies are there and how many SDEs are eligible for promotions. GM (Pers.) mentioned that about 3500 DEs vacancies are there and additional 800 DEs posts are required to promote all the SDEs of seniority list no. 6 & 7. Director (HR) immediately directed GM (Pers.) to submit a proposal for the up-gradation of 800 SDEs posts to DEs posts on Matching Saving Concept and instructed him to initiate CPCs  to promote all SDEs of seniority list no. 6 & 7 to DE posts before  CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation. GM (Pers.) assured to process the case of 800 posts up-gradation and to fill up 4300 DEs posts by conducting CPCs. He promised to complete this exercise within one month.

 

Promotion from  DE (T) to DGM (Engg.): GM (Pers.) appraised that about 700 clear DGM vacant posts are there and about 200 Additional GM entrusted posts are there that can be utilized. Thus total 900 DGMs can be promoted in view of the Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh & DoP&T instructions available on catch up rule. Director (HR) assured that the CPC will be initiated immediately to fill up 900 DGM (Engg.)

 

Promotion from JAO to AO: We apprised Director (HR) to fill up about 1300 AO vacant posts by settling the JAO seniority dispute. She directed our CHQ President to pursue with the court case applicants who has filed the case in Bangalore to withdraw the case & settle the issue amicably as per DoP&T instructions available. She assured that she will discuss the matter with GM (FP) to initiate CPCs after her return from leave on 4th June, 2018.

 

Promotion from AO to CAO: We requested Director (HR) to fill up about 1000 CAO posts on the similar lines of DE to DGM promotions on catch up rule. Director (HR) assured that the similar actions will be taken on catch up rule as being decided in DE to DGM promotion.

 

Promotion from CAO to DGM (Adhoc) : We requested to fill up 40 DGM (F) vacant posts by granting relaxation of one year services to the CAOs not having requisite service experience for the promotion to grade of DGM. Director (HR) assured an early action in this regard.

 

Promotion from JTO (TF) to SDE (TF) and SDE (TF) to AGM (TF): We requested to fill up all the vacant AGM (TF) and SDE (TF) posts as per the proposal submitted by GM (TF) to Pers. Cell BSNL Corporate Office for clearance. We apprised Director (HR) that the proposal for the promotion from JTO (TF) to SDE (TF) for filling up of 44 SCF quota Posts and the promotion from SDE (TF) to AGM (TF) for filling up of 5 vacant posts has already been approved by the Competent Authority during Nov’ 2017 but till date CPC process has not been initiated. Director (HR) immediately directed GM (Pers) to initiate the CPC for the promotion from JTO (TF) to SDE (TF) for filling up of 44 SCF quota vacant Posts and for the promotion from SDE (TF) to AGM (TF) for filling up of 5 vacant posts. GM (Pers.) assured an early action in this regard.

 

Promotion from SDE (C/E) to EE (C/E): We expressed our resentment against the BW Cell BSNL Corporate Office attitude wherein the EE (C/E) CPCs are being conducted in violation of the BSNL MSRR. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter.

 

Promotion from JTO (E) to SDE (E) : We requested Director (HR) to fill up the vacant SDE (E) posts through CPCs. Director (HR) directed GM (Pers.) to discuss the matter with CGM (EW).

 

In this manner after detailed discussions, GM (Pers.) assured to conduct all CPCs within one month on war footing manner. We further requested Director (HR) to ensure that all CPCs are conducted as mentioned above before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. Director (HR) firmly told to ensure conduction of CPCs in a given time frame.

 

(b) Grant of agenda meeting to AIBSNLEA: We requested Director (HR) for granting a formal meeting to AIBSNLEA. Director (HR) immediately decided to hold formal meeting with AIBSNLEA on 28th June, 2018.

At last, we extended our sincere gratitude & thanks to Director (HR) for showing her positive concern towards executives.

29.05.2018 CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal approved by the BSNL Board - our concerns thereof

 

GM (Pres.) of BSNL Corporate Office convinced the BSNL Management and the Board of Directors in their meeting held on 28.05.2018 about the need of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and got approved it by replacing the existing EPP and BSNL MS RRs. Also pleaded that on implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy no financial implication will be there rather BSNL will save additional one increment benefit on post based promotions under EPP.  

 

BSNL Board has approved the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy for BSNL Executives with the prospective date of its notification and further directed to abolish the entire vacant Group “B” and STS level posts as on 1st July 2018. It is a great injustice towards the executives who were eligible to be promoted to the next higher post on the functional basis as per the existing RRs and against the available vacancies in Group “B” and Group “A” level posts. All these executives are losing their past service which will frustrate and demoralize these executives as no proper consideration has been given for their past service. It is also said that in the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, there will be time bound non-post based promotions but contrary to this, adhoc promotions have also been introduced at the level of AGM in the case of non-availability of the eligible candidates which means that these promotions will be against vacant posts which needs SC/ST roster implementation. Against non-post based time bound functional promotion whosoever is eligible having requisite residency period should be promoted to AGM grade on regular basis. Since, it is non-post based time bound promotion in that case why adhoc promotion?     

 

In order to overcome this unpleasant situation, we would like to suggest that as per the existing RRs all the vacant posts of Group “B” and Group “A” level should be filled up first since there is no stay order on promotions from any court. Only some directions are there to re-fix the seniority and on implementation of SC/ST roster. The TES Group “B” seniority lists should immediately be finalized based upon the Hon'ble Apex Court judgments otherwise  the non-post based time bound promotions to the higher post under CPSU Cadre Hierarchy will not be possible.    

 

In the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal approved by the BSNL Board the following shortcomings will put executives in loss and will invite litigations:

 

1. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy for BSNL Executives with the prospective date of its notification will cause great injustice towards the senior executives.

2. All vacant Group “B” and STS level posts as on 1st July 2018 are going to be abolished. RRs and sanctioned posts cannot be abolished in an arbitrary and retrospective manner. It is a great injustice towards the executives who were eligible to be promoted to the next higher post on the functional basis as per the existing RRs and against the available vacancies in Group “B” and Group “A” level posts.  

3. The SC/ST Roster implementation on the pretext of non-post based time bound functional promotion has been denied whereas the adhoc promotions at AGM level have been introduced which can be against vacancies only,

4. The eligibility criterion i.e. the residency period for STS level posts has been increased to 12 years from 5/7 years. Introduction of Sr. SDE /Sr. AO as functional promotion have increased the stagnation to the SDE/AO and equivalent cadres.

5. Stringent bench marks have been introduced which will cause huge droppings,

6. Non implementation of Hon'ble Supreme Court judgments on TES Group “B” seniority before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy will invite litigations.

 

AIBSNLEA has requested CMD BSNL to kindly intervene in the matter and direct the Pers. Cell for conducting the CPCs to fill-up the entire vacant Group “B” and STS level posts immediately before notification of the corrected CPSU Care Hierarchy on the prospective date to avoid humiliation of executives and the scope of litigations.

 

So called majority Association in their website posting on 29.05.2018 have made a false claim that the formal discussions have been taken place with them only which is not correct. The fact remains that Pers, Cell of BSNL Corporate Office supplied the draft proposal to AIBSNLEA on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and had discussions more than three times at the instances of CMD BSNL and Director (HR) wherein we submitted our views / suggestions to the BSNL Management for consideration. Some suggestions given by AIBSNLEA have been considered for example non-post based time bound promotion up to the level of AGM instead of Sr. SDE, Jt. DGM designation to the executives drawing E5 scale and numerical bench mark consideration instead of subjective classifications etc.  But, many suggestions have not been considered since the so called majority Association agreed upon.

28.05.2018 It is also learnt that no discussions were taken place on Creation of the Tower Subsidiary Company of BSNL in BSNL's Board meeting held today afternoon at Hyderabad.

28.05.2018 CPSU Cadre Hierarchy approved by BSNL Board on prospective date implementation: BSNL Board in its meeting held today afternoon at Hyderabad approved CPSU Cadre Hierarchy on prospective dated i.e. date of notification will be the date of implementation. The CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation with prospective date will not benefit the existing executives. In view of that before its notification, AIBSNLEA will continue its efforts to get fill up all Group-‘B' and STS/JAG equivalent vacant posts of all disciplines through CPCs.

The suggestions given by AIBSNLEA to consider time bound functional promotion upto AGM Level, Jt. DGM designation to the STS level officers working in E-5 grade has been considered and approved by BSNL Board.

 

The other issues i.e. eligibility conditions for promotion from SDE/AO to DE/CAO within 7 years instead of 12 years, benchmarks on numerical basis and SC/ST roster implementation have been considered or not will be find out shortly.

 

It is learnt that BSNL Board has recommended to abolish all SDE/AO, DE/CAO equivalent posts w.e.f. 01st July, 2018. Thus the all vacant posts of Group-'B' and STS level are necessarily required to be filled up by conducting CPCs before 1st July 2018 so that the existing majority executives may get desired benefits of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy.

 

BSNL Management has to take immediate necessary steps to finalize that TES Group-'B' seniority as per the Hon'ble SC judgments to fill up the vacant posts to avoid further litigations.

i) In the BSNLs proposal cleared by BSNL MC will create financial and legal implications due to effective date of implementation from 01.01.2017. In view of this JS has suggested to give date of effect from prospective date

ii) The existing vacancies are to be filled up subject to outcome of court case by conducting CPCs.

iii)  Prior approval of BSNL Board/DoT is required wherein promotions affecting pension instead of only BSNL MC approval.

iv) Existing EPP shouldn't be continued in BSNL after implementation of CPSU hierarchy.

v) BSNL HR plan has not been finalized on the required no. of posts which needs clarification.

vi) The Screening committee has to be conducted on every time bound functional promotions under CPSU cade hierarchy instead of automatic promotion for the executives working in higher scales.

vii) The clause 5.6 is irrelevant para on AGM (Adhoc) as no vacancy based promotion up to AGM.

viii) Date of financial upgradation E4-E5 and E5-E6 has to be explained since the CPSU time bound functional promotions are limiting up to E4 scale only.

ix) Any functional promotion in the same scale no additional increment is allowed.

x) The bench mark should be very good (35) for OC and Good (31) for SC/ST instead of good (31) and Average (27) bench mark.

GM Pers told that these issues needs to be examined and submitted to the JS for consideration before submitting the final proposal to the BSNL Board.

DoT wherein the date of effect has been suggested from prospective date, similarly the eligibility condition from SDE/AO to DE/CAO promotion is now prescribed 12 years' service instead of 5/7 years of service and increase in bench mark etc. will not at all benefit the executives rather will put them into loss.

We further requested to consider date of effect from the last DPC date/ year of recruitment and to consider our views/ suggestions given earlier on all the clauses vide our letter no. AIBSNLEA/CHQ/CPSU/2017 dated 15.11.2017. Also requested to expedite CPCs on priority.

SCF quota:- We requested GM(Pers) to initiate CPC to fill up the vacant TES Group-B posts since the judgement of Hon'ble High Court Kerala is expected to be pronounced after 23rd May 2018. Since the new SDE RR has been notifying on seniority fixation in SDE cadre on ROTA Quota basis which may allow favorable judgement, this will allow promotions. More than 10000 SDE(Telecom.) vacant posts are there which needs immediate filling up. Earlier the CPC was initiated to fill up about 6000 SDE (T) posts but due to stay orders the same was held up. Most of the APARs of the eligible JTOs were accessed through screening process for promotion thus now only one or two years APARs needs to be accessed for promotion.

GS mentioned that the KTK Circle is a very important Circle for AIBSNLEA.  He appreciated efforts CS and his team for increasing the membership. He pointed out that how govt. has managed to exhaust all our reserves in a very calculative manner and cautioned the members to remain united and alert to safeguard their rights.  Disinvestment policy of Govt. will never allow a comfortable position for BSNL as a bright example of MTNL's financial position in front of us.  Com. GS mentioned that the viability and existence of BSNL is the most important issue today and we have to analyse the reasons of BSNL's today's position. Com GS informed that after more than Rs. 10,000 Crores profit in 2004-05, in recent past years BSNL have made the Losses , which is a serious concern for all of us.  In his detailed address Com.

In addition to this Spectrum Allocation and bidding process on high rates are the example of step behaviour of the Government towards BSNL, which is a Government owned company. Com. GS explained the efforts extended by AIBSNLEA for the creation of a trust in LIC of India for Leave Encashment fund of Rs. 4,825 Crores on which BSNL is earning 400 Crores Interest per annum and leave encashment payment is being immediately. Com. GS informed that 4G spectrum and technology is a must in BSNL for the public perception and its requirement. In view of that last BSNL Board meeting has already taken a decision to get allocated 4G spectrum from DoT. He told that BSNL needs to pay Rs. 10,000 Crore to get allocated 4G spectrum from DoT, wherein, Rs. 2500 crore equity has already been utilized, remaining  Rs 5000 Crore equity amount is pending which can be adjusted towards cost of 50% of 4G spectrum and  remaining  Rs. 5,000 Crore will be paid in 10 equal annual  instalments.

 

Com GS further explained the burning issues of the Headquarters level. He informed that AIBSNLEA made the presentation to 3rd PRC committee for relaxing the affordability clause due to social obligation and BSNL's role in natural calamities. He mentioned that BSNL has the responsibilities of TAC/CAG/CVC and Audits and the private operators are not having these responsibilities. But even then BSNL works for nation building and does not think about profit or loss. Com. GS mentioned that the success of DIGITAL INDIA fully depends on BSNL and its Employees. He informed that due to BSNL Union and Associations opposition, the SAM G Pitroda recommendations like 30% disinvestment, VRS to 1 lakh employees, unbundling of the copper conductor could not be implemented  and due to the same only the BSNL is having more than 65% BB market share at present.

He informed that due to the opposition of the Associations and Unions of BSNL, implementation of Sam Pitroda recommendations like VRS to one lakh employees, 30% disinvestment, unbundling of copper conductor etc, which were fatal to the existence of BSNL, were not implemented in BSNL.

 

In his speech, Com.

He told that DOT is always showing step mother attitude towards BSNL and as an example he quoted that DOT is charging Pension Contribution on the maximum of the Pay-scale instead of on actual pay drawn, which is affecting the exchequer of the BSNL badly. He told that he brought this fact to the notice of Hon'ble Minister during his recent meeting and Minister immediately ordered the Secretary, DOT to look into the matter for taking corrective measures in this regard.

 

Com. Prahlad Rai, General Secretary, AIBSNLEA, in his address regretted that many Comrades are going to Courts regarding their promotions without any valid grounds, which resulted in delay in conducting DPC/CPC for promoting the executives to the higher posts/cadres.  He also   discussed about the FR (22)(1) (a)(i) fixation issue, restructuring of AD OL cadre, etc. Lastly, Com.
