(i) Implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL: We requested to implement 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL by getting an early approval from BSNL MC and BSNL Board. Also requested to use his good office in DOT to get approved 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL. CMD, BSNL mentioned that shortly the matter will be discussed in the Management Committee of BSNL Board and thereafter in BSNL Board for its approval.

But CMD remained non-committal on this issue and mentioned that let us wait and watch the approval of BSNL MC/ BSNL Board.

Mohan SDE DS/ Trichy gave the welcome address. Com S. Kamaraj SDE ACS/TN Circle detailed the importance of meeting arranged in Trichy on 3rd PRC Implementation in BNSL under question mark & involvement of CHQ/AIBSNLEA on 3rd PRC and the meetings with MOSC, DOT, BSNL Management etc.

 

Com C. Duraiarasan Circle Secretary/TN Circle gave a address in this meeting. He detailed 3rd PRC recommendations, DPE & cabinet approval, affordability clause applicable to BSNL, sister association struggle with BSNLEU on 3rd PRC etc.

 

Com S.Sivakumar President/CHQ/AIBSNLEA gave a special address in this meeting. He elaborately spoke in 3rd PRC issues on 3rd PRC committee Report by Justice Satish Chandra, DPE/Cabinet approval. After arrival of DPE notifications, CMD called all officers/union representatives, in the meeting GS/CHQ told that BSNL is able to give 15% fitment in 3rd PRC by applying affordability clause in DPE guidelines as per Telecom Policy-1999. He proposed to form a committee to explore the possibilities to recommend 15% fitment. Accordingly, a committee formed and the same is likely to submit the report to BSNL Management Committee. The same is to be submitted to BSNL Board in the 2nd week of September for recommendations to DOT. Then DOT has to decide to issue presidential directives on 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL.

 

BSNL which was making profit earlier has gone at loss due to wrong policies of the Government of India and it now started turning around due to combined efforts of Employees and Management. Under the Dynamic Leadership of our present CMD Shri.Anupam Srivatsava, the Company has started upward journey of reclaiming its rightful place in the midst of extremely tough competitors.

 

Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations has conducted campaign for promoting the newly introduced schemes which is never and anywhere seen in any other PSUs, where executive and non-executives going to market places, railway stations and Bus stands.  Now we are introducing the SWAS that is Service with A Smile.  Except BSNL, no other Executive or Non-Executive Association of any PSU is telling its employees to improve the services. The growth of mobile connection in BSNL has been increased drastically as compared to the private operators, which has made TRAI to declare that BSNL is the fastest growing mobile company of the country.  

 

Due to the Combined efforts of the Employees and Management BSNL Operating profit increased by six fold jump i.e., from Rs.672 crore in the preceding year to Rs.3855 crore in 2015-16 and BSNL Revenue from operations rose 4.4 percent to Rs.28,449 crore during the financial year ended March 2016.

 

There are positive signs of improvement.  BSNL was number 1 once and due to various reasons, its positions had come down.  All the new technologies like NOFN, etc is helping BSNL to improve.  With such a aggressive market and competition, the market share of BSNL as gone up.   The revenue from operation has been increased. Our Employees are working hard to increase the revenue of BSNL.  There are virtual turn around going on in the organization.   Kerala, Maharashtra and Odissa Circle have earned Profit during F.Y 2016-17. Operating Profit of Tamil Nadu Circle has also been increased during F.Y 2016-17   as compared to previous year.

 

Regarding the implementation 3rd Pay Revision Committee Recommendation in BSNL with 15% fitment, BSNL is not getting any financial support from the Govt. and regulating the tariffs in Telecom Sector of the country. BSNL has paid more than Rs. 2 lakh Crores to the Govt. in terms of license fee, taxes dividend etc after its inception. Against the notional loan of Rs. 7500 Crores, BSNL has paid Rs.14000 Crores as interest @ 14.5% to DoT. After its formation, BSNL has never been given any financial support by the Govt. rather BSNL is implementing Govt. prestigious projects for example NOFN, NFS, LWE, etc. without getting much profit. In 3rd Pay Revision Committee   report some relaxation in the affordability clause to some specific PSUs have been recommended. On this basis, BSNL can make a case to the Administrative Ministry i.e. DoT for approval.  As per the request of AIBSNLEA, a Committee has been formed by the CMD BSNL to study the 3rd PRC recommendations and submit its report. After the Approval of BSNL Board the recommendation will be forwarded to the Department of Telecommunications for approval and issuance of Presidential Orders. AIBSNLEA is regularly  perusing in this regard. AIBSNLEA CHQ has written so many letters to Hon'ble MOSC/Secretary  DOT/DPE  /CMD BSNL and met them personally stating that as per the Para 5 of the 3rd PRC committee recommendations as per the Telecom Policy 1999,  BSNL has been formed to meet out the specific agenda  of Government of India. i.e. providing Telecom Services without any budgetary support and BSNL is paying License Fee, Spectrum charges, and other charges as per the order of the Government of India from time to time deviating to the agreed principles on 01/10/2000.

 

CMD BSNL and Hon. MOSC is also in favour of implementation of the 3rd PRC in BSNL.   Hon. MOSC is of the opinion that the efforts and hard work should continue and ensure that the turnaround continue. Hon'ble MOSC categorically told in the Cabinet meeting that 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL in must for its survival. CMD BSNL advised us to pursue in DoT and be vigilant.

 

We urged our Members to take the responsibility of the journey.  It is the time to remain all the Unions and Associations unite and make the BSNL to regain its original glory and continue to process of revival. 

 

Let all the BSNL Unions and Associations come together to get implemented the 3rd PRC report in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit as a single and common demand through negotiations or the decisive struggle keeping aside all the differences at this crucial juncture.

 

It was also decided in recently concluded 2nd CWC Meeting of AIBSNLEA at Trivandrum that in case if the 3rd PRC recommendation are not implemented in BSNL then AIBSNLEA CHQ may start a joint united struggle with other Unions / Associations in due course of time.

 

Nearly more than 100 members attended in the meeting. Press Report is given to press media.

AIBSNLEA Zindabad… AIBSNLEA Zindabad….

23.08.2017: Misleading reporting by SNEA on CPSU Cadre hierarchy:-

SNEA on its CHQ website has put some misleading information regarding their negotiation with Management on CPSU Cadre hierarchy. The fact remains that in the earlier updates of SNEA in its CHQ Website it never mentioned about its stand on CPSU Cadre hierarchy and discussions held with PGM (Pers.). SNEA always mentioned that CPSU Cadre hierarchy is being implemented with the efforts of them. The fact remains that PGM (Pers.) had several rounds of meeting with SNEA before preparing the draft proposal of CPSU hierarchy which he presented to CMD BSNL in the presence of Director (HR) after the consent given by SNEA wherein PGM (Pers.) pleaded non-post based time bound promotions up to SDE/AO level only and post based promotions DE/CAO onwards. This was not agreed by CMD BSNL and Director (HR) and they directed PGM (Pers.) to modify the proposal to provide non-post based time bound promotions up to DE/CAO grade and post based promotions from DGM and onwards grade. This fact was confirmed by PGM (Pers.) and Director (HR) to AIBSNLEA in the recent informal meetings. AIBSNLEA stand was always to implement CPSU Cadre hierarchy as per the Khan Committee recommendation only. Now seeing the developments and the stand taken by CMD BSNL and Director (HR) on CPSU cadre hierarchy, SNEA is changing its stand. However, it is good that good sins has prevailed to them.  

22.08.2017: GS met with Jt. GM (Pres.), BSNL Corporate Office and discussed regrading:

A. CPC from JTO to SDE (T): We requested to file one MA in Hon'ble High Court of Kerala for early pronouncement of the judgment which is kept reserved since long. Jt. GM (Pers.) assured that shortly the MA will be filed in this regard. He further mentioned that the CPC work is in progress, the VCRs of the eligible JTOs are being collected from the Circles. He assured as soon the court stay order is vacated the CPC will be expedited. SLP in the Hon'ble Apex court against the judgment of Hon'ble High Court of Chandigarh has already been filed.

 

B. CPC from SDE to DE: We requested to expedite the CPC from SDE to DE. Jt. GM (Pers.) informed that the CPC work is in progress but recently Hon'ble Supreme Court two judges bench judgment on SDEs LDCE quota seniority has been pronounced in supersession to the earlier judgment of three judge's bench of Hon'ble Supreme Court. Legal opinion in this regard has been sought whether the judgment can be implemented or an appeal is required to be filed in Hon'ble Supreme Court. SLP in the Hon'ble Apex court in against the judgment of Hon'ble High Court of Chandigarh has already been filed on the SC/ST roaster implementation.

 

C. CPC from DE to DGM (E) left out cases: We requested to issue for 32 left out cases of DE to DGM promotions and to fill up all vacant posts arises consequent to declination of DGM promotions by some of the DEs. Jt. GM (Pers.) informed that recently Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh has granted the stay order on promotions from DE to DGM without implementing the Hon'ble Supreme Court's judgment on Catch up rule for consideration of SC/ST candidate promotion.

And they tried to trunked the replacement of pay scales earlier proposal of BSNL dated 06.06.2016 up to the level of E3 scale only and demanded to keep one executive in E3 scale for 10 years.

18.08.2017: Need of united struggles for the settlement of wage revision:

GS replies Shri P. Abhimanyu, General Secretary, BSNL Employees Union, CHQ in reference to his letter number BSNLEU/103 (Forum) dated 10.08.2017 on the subject the need of united struggles for the settlement of wage revision. While appreciating his feelings that the wage revision of BSNL employees is must GS has categorically mentioned that DoT and Government should give a special consideration to dispense the affordability clause of 3rd PRC with reference to BSNL as it is discharging certain important responsibilities on behalf of the Govt. of India by implementing NOFN successfully, NFS and LWE projects assigned to BSNL. BSNL also provides reliable telecom services to customers during natural calamities in the country on priority without getting any extra financial support from the government. BSNL also governs the tariffs in telecom sector and ensure telecom services on affordable rates to the customers.

 

At present CMD BSNL along with complete BSNL Board is making its sincere and honest efforts for the implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL. Hon'ble MoSC (I/C) is also of the same view and making efforts to get the Govt. approval for dispension of the said affordability clause of 3rd PRC report for BSNL. In this connection as per our discussions held with CMD BSNL on 09.08.2017, an internal committee of BSNL officers has been constituted to explore the modalities for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit. The committee meeting is over and the report is being submitted shortly which will be placed before the Management committee of BSNL and thereafter to the BSNL Board for approval. As assured by CMD BSNL after the approval of BSNL Board, he will take up the matter in DoT for its approval and issuance of Presidential Directives.

 

In our opinion, we should closely monitor all these developments and in case we find any difficulty at any level in this regard then immediately we all BSNL Unions and Associations should discuss and decide the strategy to impress upon the DoT / Govt. for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL through our decisive struggle. We assure our fullest participation in the struggle, if need be.

GS along with GS of BSNLEU and GS SNEA was invited by CMD BSNL today at 12 PM to discuss regarding implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL. GS NFTE BSNL was also invited but due to lack of communication he could not attend the meeting. CMD BSNL initiated the discussion on 3rd PRC report implementation in BSNL. He mentioned that in 3rd PRC report some relaxation in the affordability clause to some specific PSUs have been recommended. On this basis, we can make a case to the Administrative Ministry i.e. DoT for approval. He explained that in general, the 3rd PRC recommendations are not favourable to BSNL but we have to take some favoarble points to get implemented the 3rd PRC report in BSNL. Comrade GS AIBSNLEA suggested him to immediately form a committee in BSNL Corporate Office to study the 3rd PRC report and to submit a report with in one week for consideration of BSNL Management committee and thereafter to the BSNL Board. CMD BSNL appreciated our suggestion and mentioned that immediately a committee will be formed in BSNL Corporate Office which will submit its report with in one week to place in the next BSNL Management Committee meeting and hereafter immediately in the BSNL Board for approval. CMD BSNL explained that he has already discussed in DoT with senior officers on this issue wherein Additional Secretary (T), who is the Govt nominee Board of Director also in BSNL Board, has mentioned that since he has already supported BSNL's view point in the Cabinet Secretary meeting. In view of that he is in support with BSNL on this issue. CMD BSNL explained that BSNL is not getting any financial support from the Govt. and regulating the tariffs in Telecom Sector of the country. BSNL has paid more than Rs. 2 lakh Crores to the Govt. in terms of license fee, taxes dividend etc after its inception. Against the notional loan of Rs. 7500 Crores, BSNL has paid Rs.14000 Crores as interest amount only @ 14.5% to DoT. After its formation, BSNL has never been given any financial support by the Govt. rather BSNL is implementing Govt. prestigious projects for example NOFN, NFS, LWE, etc. with out getting much profit.

 

CMD BSNL further explained that Member (F) of DoT is of the opinion that in case if the 3rd PRC report is implemented in BSNL than BSNL will be closed with in three years. But, in his opinion in case if the 3rd PRC report is not implemented in BSNL than BSNL may be closed with in three months time. The additional burden of Rs. 2800 Crores on implementation of 3rd PRC report with full 15% fitment benefit in BSNL may be earned with the help of all the BSNL employees but to save the Rs. 2800 Crores by not implementing 3rd PRC report may give three times loss to BSNL. In view of this Govt should consider 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL. He advised all to work together for the implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL on proiority. He further reiteriated that he is ready to resign from the post of CMD BSNL in case if the 3rd PRC report is not impelemnetd in BSNL. We further suggested him that first CMD BSNL should get the approval of BSNL Board on 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL and then sent to DoT for approval thereafter only we will be able impress upon to DoT for its implementation in BSNL.

 

Let all the BSNL Unions and Assocations come together to get implemented the 3rd PRC report in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit as a single and common demand through negotiations or the decisive struggle keeping aside all the differences at this crucial juncture.

Pay Revision of Board level and below Board level Executives and Non­ Unionised  Supervisors  of  Central Public Sector Enterprises  (CPSEs) w.e.f. 01.01.2017-.....<<<Click here for letter>>>>

Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations in BSNL-Process in this regard…….

DPE has issued OM W-02/0028/2017-DPE (WC)-GL-XIII/17 dated 3rd August, 2017 regarding Pay Revision of Board Level and below Board Level executives and Non-Unionised Supervisors of Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) w.e.f. 01.01/2017.

As per the presentation submitted by AIBSNLEA CHQ and consistent efforts taken with the Hon'ble MOC , Secretary Telecom, Secretary DPE, and CMD BSNL  for the dispension  in the  affordability clause for BSNL  and extension of 3rd  PRC to BSNL Employees has now been reflected in DPE OM dated 03.08.2017.

In this regard, AIBSNLEA CHQ has written so many letters to Hon'ble MOC/Secretary  DOT/DPE  /CMD BSNL and met them personally stating that as per the Para 5 of the 3 PRC committee recommendations as per the Telecom Policy 1999,  BSNL has been formed to meet out the specific agenda  of Government of India. i.e. providing Telecom Services without any budgetary support and BSNL is paying License Fee, Spectrum charges, and other charges  as per the order of the Government of India from time to time deviating to the agreed principles on 01/10/2000.

A letter written by GS CHQ to Honorable MOC Shri Manoj Sinha Ji  on 08.06.2017 <<<Click here for GS AIBSNLEA Letter>>>>  has been furnished for the reference of our members.  The DPE OM dated 03/08/2017 vide Annexure-II Para II of Page No 19 which is reproduced below.

Affordability to certain types of CPSEs:

b)  The affordability condition shall also be applicable to the CPSEs registered under Section 25 of the Companies Act, 1956, or under Section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013 (which by the very nature of their business are not-for profit companies) for implementation of the revised compensation structure (including Performance Related Pay) as being recommended for other CPSEs.

c)  There are also certain CPSEs which have been formed as independent Government companies under a statute to perform a specific agenda / regulatory functions. The revenue stream of such CPSEs are not linked to profits from the open market in a competitive scenario but are governed through the fees & charges, as prescribed and amended from time to time by the Government. There is no budgetary support provided by the Government to such CPSEs. In consideration that the impact of the revised compensation structure (including Performance Related Pay) would supposedly form the part of revenue stream for such CPSEs, the affordability condition shall not be applicable to these CPSEs; however the implementation of same shall be subject to the approval of Administrative Ministry upon agreeing and ensuring to incorporate the impact of the revised compensation structure into the revenue stream.

On the basis of the above recommendations now BSNL Board has to recommend implementation of 3rd PRC report with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL and thereafter it has to be sent to DoT for the approval and issuance of the Presidential Directives. We have to impress upon BSNL Management in this regard for an early Board approval and sending to DoT thereafter we have to pursue in DoT for the approval of BSNL Board proposal and early issuance of presidential directives.  

Comrades, as assured by CMD BSNL, the 3rd PRC recommendations has to be approved by BSNL Board for its implementation in BSNL and thereafter to get the approval of DoT for issuance of Presidential Directives.   We are confident that CMD BSNL will fulfill his commitment in this regard. Let us,  concentrate on this issue and pursue vigorously for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL.

26.07.2017: Status of 3rd PRC notification by DPE:

DPE has send the minutes of the Cabinet Meeting held on 19.07.2017 to the Cabinet Secretariat for confirmation in the last week. The confirmation of minutes is expected by this week and thereafter the OM on notification of 3rd PRC implementation may be issued by DPE in the next week. After the notification of the OM the respective PSUs will take decision regarding its implementation for their executives. And, thereafter the respective PSUs will sent to their respective administrative ministries for the approval and issuance of Presidential Directives. In this manner after the notification of DPE OM on 3rd PRC implementation, BSNL Board will take the decision for its implementation in BSNL for its executives and thereafter it will be sent to DoT for approval and issuance of Presidential Directives.

 

We have to see that notification of DPE OM is allowing BSNL to implement 3rd PRC report or not. Whether the Cabinet has empowered respective PSU Boards or administrative ministries to give dispension in the affordability clause as recommended earlier in the interim report of 3rd PRC.

 

In case, the respective PSU Boards/ administrative ministry are empowered by Cabinet for dispension in the affordability condition of the PSU then it is the BSNL Board and administrative ministry who can take decision immediately for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL for its executives otherwise BSNL Board has to take up the matter with the administrative ministry to take the Govt. approval on dispension in the affordability clause for BSNL.

 

AIBSNLEA is monitoring all these developments very closely and will decide the future course of actions accordingly.

21.07.2017:AIBSNLEA efforts for   3rd PRC implementation in BSNL:

AIBSNLEA CHQ have been making its best efforts in DoT / Ministry/ DPE to conveyance the concern authorities for the implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL Accordingly the facts are being informed to all concern through our CHQ Website. As rightly reported by AIBSNLEA in the morning of 20.7.2017 in our CHQ Website the actual status and process of 3rd PRC implementation in PSUs / BSNL was later on confirmed by Shri Niteswar Kumar ji (IAS) PS to Hon'ble MOSC in the meeting held with AIBSNLEA on 20.7.2017( Evening). Hence , AIBSNLEA is correctly informing all the developments on day to day   basis to our members through our CHQ web site and doing hard work to ensure 3rd PRC Implementation in BSNL. But the so called Majority Association instead of informing the actual status and truth is creating hype in the minds of the Executives for which the reasons are best known to them.

The actual process of 3rd PRC implementation is that after the notification of 3rd PRC implementation in PSUs for the Pay hike of Executives the respective PSUs will take decision in their Board and will send the proposal to the Administrative Ministry for the issuance of the Presidential Directive. Similarly after DPE notification of 3rd PRC recommendations, BSNL Board will take the decision and will send to DOT for approval and for issuance of Presidential Directives. Now in the DPE notification it has to be seen that whether the Administrative Ministry/Board of the PSUs have been empowered by the Cabinet to allow dispension of the “Affordability Clause" of 3rd PRC report. In case Board/Administrative Ministry is empowered then BSNL Board and DOT Administration should implement the 3rd PRC in BSNL in the interest of its Viability otherwise, we have to fight organisationally.

Today GS contacted the concerned Officers of DPE with regard to the Notification of 3rd PRC, it is understood that the draft notification on cabinet approval has been processed to the higher level Officers for approval. The notification of 3rd PRC is expected in the next week.

AIBSNLEA is committed for 3rd PRC implementation and in case the BSNL Board/DOT Administration do not implement it,  in that  case AIBSNLEA will never hesitate to go on indefinite Strike.  Let us watch the developments closely and will take immediate organisational action, if required at the appropriate time.
