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 Associations has allowed its notification. In the recent referendum of Executives' Associations, the so called "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 associations. AIBSNLEA is struggling for getting limited Trade Union Facilities at All India Level/Circle Level & SSA Level with BSNL Management 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 for the success of their struggle & settlement of HR issues through the ongoing path.

19.04.2017 Meeting with Member (Services), Telecom Commission, DoT New Delhi: GS, AGS (HQ) met with Member (Services), Telecom Commission, DoT New Delhi and discussed regarding the progress on implementation of the recommendations of 3rd PRC in BSNL. Member (Services) informed that the BSNL's comments in this regard with positive comments from DoT have been sent to Cabinet Secretariat for taking further necessary action. 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) informed that DoT has also taken-up the issue of IDA Pension revision of BSNL pensioners with 3rd PRC in Cabinet Secretariat. We appraised him that earlier also the pension revision of BSNL pensioner was delayed by two years and 78.2% fitment benefit is also delayed by three years. Now, BSNL pensioners demanding 78.2% fitment benefit from 01.01.2007 are filing court cases.

 

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. We pleaded that EPP was approved by BSNL Board and the DoT and thereafter the notification was issued. Hence, at this stage review of EPP will cause serious resentment among the executives of BSNL. Member (Services) assured to look into the matter in case if it is routed through him.

19.04.2017 Meeting with Director (HR), BSNL Board, New Delhi: GS, AGS (HQ) met with Director (HR) and discussed regarding:

(i) Additional facilities to AIBSNLEA: We requested for grant of special CLs to the office bearers of AIBSNLEA for attending organizational activities and smooth functioning of the Association. Director (HR) assured an early action in this regard.

(ii) E2 and E3 pay scales for JTO and SDE equivalent cadres: We requested Director (HR) to take up the matter with DoT to withdraw the OM dated 28.03.2017 on E1A and E2A pay scales notification. Implementation of intermediatory pay scales E1A and E2A are lowering the pay scales of the executives without any penalty imposed. 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). However, she will try to discuss the matter with Secretary (Telecom).

(iii) Pay fixation initially at Rs. 22820/- of the JTOs and equivalent cadres recruited post 2007: We requested Director (HR) for the settlement of this pending issue delinking with E1A and E2A pay scales. Director (HR) mentioned that Smt. A. Panda, PGM (PF-II) committee report was studied and some clarifications have been asked from the committee Chairperson. She assured an early action in this regard.  

(iv) Conduction of CPCs: We expressed our serious concern against the non-holding of the CPCs in almost all the cadres which have been stalled in the name of pending court cases. It has caused stagnation in the career prospects of executives. Director (HR) appreciated our concern and mentioned that tomorrow she is going to meet with Sr. Advocate Sr. R.D. Aggrawala to find a way out to conduct CPCs in view of the urgent requirement of BSNL and pending court cases. We requested Director (HR) to discuss the Kerala High Court issue also with the Sr. Advocate wherein the hearings are completed and the judgment is kept reserved. Director (HR) assured to discuss this issue also.

(v) Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy:  We requested for the implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy as recommended by the Khan Committee. We also expressed our anguish against the burring of Khan Committee report by the Pers. Cell and drafting a new CPSU cadre hierarchy up-to SDE level only by introduction of MTs. Director (HR) mentioned that the new draft proposal prepared by the Pers. Cell has been agreed by SNEA(I), the Majority Association. However, she assured to direct PGM (Pers.) to discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA also.

(vi) Method of vacancy calculation for the cadre of JTOs: We expressed our concern against keeping in abeyance the orders earlier issued by the Estt Cell of BSNL Corporate Office in respect of Punjab circle and other circles. 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. She assured an early action in this regard.

(ix) Posting of LDCE qualified JTOs in SDE grade: Director(HR) mentioned that as soon as the modification in SDE RR is approved by BSNL Board and she will discuss a Sr. Advocate to take out the way for promotion in view of Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh judgment & SLP filed in Hon'ble Supreme Court in this regard.

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.

13.04.2017: Status of CPCs:DE to DGM:GS discussed with Jt. GM(Pers.) regarding CPC from DE to DGM(Engg.) to expedite it. Jt. DGM(Pers.) mentioned that the Chairman CPC & Members of CPC are securitizing APARs & this work may be completed next week byTuesday/Wednesday and thereafter promotion order may be issued on Friday i.e. dated 21st April, 2017. We further requested to speed up the CPC work.

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.

17.03.2017:   GS met with Jt. GM (Pers.) and discussed regarding:

1. Withdrawal of BSNL's order dated 25.07.2016 on pay fixation under EPP: We requested to withdraw the BSNL's order dated 25.07.2016 on pay fixation under EPP wherein the additional increment given on post based promotion is not affixation under FR 22 (1) (a) (i) rather it is an incentive given to the executive for shouldering higher responsibilities and it is not covered under FRSR, the DNI allowed under TBP remained un-altered which is fixed under the proviso of FRSR. The impact of this order (25.07.2016 order) is on many executives who have already been retired as the EPP was implemented long back from 01.10.2000. Similarly, there will be huge task while making correction the pay of large number of executives which will invite litigations. AIBSLEA has already given a letter followed by a reminder to the Addl. Secy (T), DoT in this regard to review the decision as the EPP was approved by BSNL Board and DoT.

Jt. GM (Pers) informed that a presentation on pay fixation under EPP is going to be made to Addl. Secy (T) today at 1500 Hrs by the Estb. and Pers. Cell of BSNL CO. He expected that today some solution will be taken.

17.03.2017:   CMD, BSNL called the representatives of the Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations for a meeting  wherein Com. GS attended the meeting.

CMD apprised in the meeting that as per Govt. of India instructions he has directed all the BSNL Corporate Office and all the Circles to complete the valuation of BSNL land by 30th June 2017 (within three months). GM (BW), BSNL CO and GM (CA), BSNL CA has been directed to evaluate the land value of BNSL Corporate Office within one week time. Similarly, all the Circles/SSAs are to evaluate their available land through a consultant i.e. KPMG. This accounting will be based on India Accounting System (IAS) instead of the earlier General Accounting Procedure (GAP). Now all companies are supposed to keep their accounts as per IAS. The net worth of BSNL will be calculated based on the Assets generated after 01.10.2000. At present the net worth of BSNL is slightly negative i.e. about Rs 4,000 ? Rs. 5,000 Crores during the last 16 years. BSNL is having about 10,000 plots of the land which may come estimated Rs. 1,50,000 Crores as per the today's market value. In view of this all the available land in SSAs/Circles should be evaluated properly and nothing should be left unaccounted. KPMG will be a 3rd party market valuer. AT the time of formation on 01.10.2000 the assets transferred to BSNL were about Rs. 68,000 Crores value which has now been de-valuated to Rs. 45,000/- Crore.    By way of this valuation the deprecation of BSNL will be reduced and LD will not effect. Last year the BSNL's EBITDA was Rs. 3,850/- Crores and this year also the EBITDA is +ve side.

 

On the issue of spectrum allocation, BSNL has already requested DoT to allocate 2100 MHz band in addition to 700 MHz.

 

On BSNL and MTNL merger issue CMD mentioned that we are not against the merger of BSNL and MTNL as synergy but three important issues are required to be settled by the Govt. before merger i.e. (1) the debt of Rs. 19,000/- Crore should not be transferred to BSNL.

(2) salary structure of BSNL and MTNL employees should be at par and

(3) MTNL should be de-listed before merger.

 

On implementation 3rd PRC recommendations CMD mentioned that he will look into the matter for maximum benefit for its employees.
