Similarly increase in bench mark will create huge droppings whereas droppings have been assured less than 4% at the time of formulation of EPP, increase in residency period from 5/7 years to 12 years from SDE/AO to DE/ CAO promotion and without finalization of the seniority lists of executive cadres will create legal complications. CMD assured to look into the matter.

Dir (HR) mentioned that this issue was raised by AIBSNLEA & AIRBSNLEWA  in the inaugural function of AIBSNLEA CHQ office wherein she had assured an early action. Accordingly, this step has been taken and she directed GM (SR) to take similar action at all Circle levels also as requested by us.

Similarly increase in bench mark will create huge droppings, increase in residency period from 5/7 years to 12 years for SDE/AO for the promotion to DE / CAO and without finalization of the seniority lists of executive cadres will create legal complications.

Director (HR) assured to look into the matter.

15.05.2018 Meeting with GM(Pers): GS, President and AGS (DR) met GM(Pers) and discussed regarding implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy and requested to discuss the observations given by Jt. Secy. so that the same can be informed to our members. GM(Pers) appreciated our concern and discussed point wise all the observations made by JS (Admn.). The following discussions took place.

a) CPSU cadre hierarchy: GM(Pers) informed that response on CPSU cadre hierarchy proposal approved by  BSNL MC has been received from Jt. Secy. (Admn) DoT, Govt. nominee Director of BSNL Board  wherein he has  given some  objections in the proposal submitted by the BSNL  viz.

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.

xi) Promotion to be given in the feeder cadre as per existing policy, if there is no court stay order is pending on promotion.

xii) All the cadres seniority lists should be finalized immediately etc.

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. We expressed our serious concern against the observations made by JS (Admn.) 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.

Wings) subject to outcome of the Court cases as per the management committee approval. GM (Pers) assured for an early action to move the proposal for initiating CPCs in all disciplines

GM (Pers) assured that immediate action will be taken after getting opinion of CVO.

d) Promotion from JTO to SDE(Telecom.) 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. GM (Pers) mentioned that the VCRs have already been called from the Circles and the action to initiate CPC will be take shortly.

It is worth while to mention that AIBSNLEA only has initiated and filed the case in Hon'ble PBCAT New Delhi and got quashed the DoT's disputed letter date 05.07.2017 for all irrespective of any discrimination.

11.05.2018 Meeting with Member (F)  DoT:

GS, President, AGS (DR) met Member (F), DoT and discussed regarding:

a) Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit: We apprised Member (F) about the discussions had between Hon'ble MoSC (I/C) and the representatives of All union and Associations and  requested  to use her good office for early  implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit as recommended by BSNL Board. We also apprised that  the reply from DPE in this regard has also been received in DoT long before. Now the  administrative ministry can consider implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL as per its recommendations on affordability clause. Member (F) told that she will examine the case positively and give the concurrence to the proposal . She mentioned that  she will support in respect of PRC implementation in BSNL.

Revision of pension of BSNL pensioners: We requested member (F), DoT for revision of the  pension of BSNL pensioners after 3rd PRC report. Member (F) mentioned she is of the opinion that pension revision of BSNL pensioners will take place only after their pay revision. We pleaded that BSNL pensioners are not playing any role in the affordability of BSNL, thus their pension revision should be delinked with the pay revision. Member (F) advised us to take up the matter with Member (S).

c) Payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum pay scale: We requested Member (F) to send the BSNLs proposal to DoE with the comments of internal finance of DoT to charge pension contribution of BSNL employee on actual basic pay instead of maximum of the pay scale as per DOPT instruction available. Member (F) mentioned that she is not convinced by argument of excess burden as BSNL can take various steps to control various wasteful expenses such as Foreign trips, stay in Five Star hotel etc. We pleaded that after 3rd PRC implementation this will impose excess burden of Rs .1400 crore on BSNL, however as per 6 CPC  recommendation and DOPT instruction, pension contribution should be on  actual basic pay. Member (F) assured that she will examine the case as per prevailing rules as and when proposal will come to her office.

d) Withdrawal of additional increment on post based promotion in the same pay scale under EPP vide DoT letter dated 05.07.2017: We expressed our serious concern against the recoveries being made to the BSNL employees on their retirement and pension is reduced even the Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi has quashed the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 in the case filed by AIBSNLEA.  Member (F) told that matter is sub judies and DoT administration decided to file appeal in Upper courts. However, she advise us to take up the case in Estt. Section, DoT to instruct CCAs to stop recoveries by taking undertaking from  BSNL Pensioners.

We further pleaded that BSNL pensioners are not playing any role in the affordability of BSNL, thus their pension revision should be delinked with the pay revision and as per the BSNL reply to DoT that at present the pension liability of BSNL pensioners is about Rs. 4200 Crores and after the revision of pension with 15% fitment benefit it will increase Rs. 4800 Crores. DDG (Estt.) lastly told that he will further discuss the matter with the concern officers of Estt. Cell of DoT.

c) Payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum pay scale: We requested DDG(Estt.) to send the BSNLs proposal to DoE with the comments of internal finance of DoT to charge pension contribution of BSNL employee on actual basic pay instead of maximum of the pay scale as per the DOPT instruction available. DDG(Estt.) mentioned that the comments internal finance DoT are awaited.

10.05.2018 Meeting with Dir(PSU) DoT:- GS, President, AGS (DR) met Dir(PSU) DoT and discussed regarding.

a) Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit: We requested Dir(PSU) for the implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit as recommended by BSNL Board. We also pleaded that administrative ministry can consider implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL as per its recommendations on affordability clause. However, the reply from DPE in this regard has also been received in DoT long before. Dir(PSU) mentioned that the DPE reply has been given cognizance by all the Sr. Officers in DoT but further action is yet to be taken. It seems that the work regarding preparation of Cabinet note for relaxation in the affordability clause has not yet started in DoT. This a serious situation and all the Unions and Associations of BSNL Should immediately decide their strategies to impress upon DoT for the settlement of this issue otherwise the issue will linger on in DoT.

27.03.2018  Effectively organise lunch hour demonstrations today on the Subsidiary Tower Company issue.

The All Unions and Associations of BSNL has given call to conduct lunch hour demonstrations tomorrow the 27.03.2018, against the decision of the government to form BSNL's Subsidiary Tower Company, and also against the decision of the DoT, to appoint Shri Amit Yadav, IAS, as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company. Circle and district secretaries are requested to make maximum mobilisations, in coordination with the other constituents of AUAB, and make the programme successful. Memorandum should also be submitted to the Chief General Managers and the State Governors.

The All Unions and Associations of BSNL is organising a powerful lunch hour demonstration in front of the Sanchar Bhawan today.

 

As per the Cabinet decision, Subsidiary Tower Company will come under the control of the Board of Directors of BSNL. As such, the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company should be appointed only by the BSNL's Board of Directors. However, the DoT, in a high-handed manner, has appointed an IAS officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, without even informing the Board of Directors of BSNL. This it self clearly shows that, the Subsidiary Tower Company will not come under the control of BSNL. The whole game plan of the government is, to snatch the entire mobile towers of BSNL, in the guise of forming a separate tower company. Hence, opposing the formation of the Subsidiary Tower Company, and also opposing the high-handed action of the DoT, of appointing an IAS officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, the AUAB will be organising a powerful lunch hour demonstration in front of the Sanchar Bhawan today.

26.03.2018  Meeting with Advisor (Operations)/ Member (S) DoT:- GS, President and AGS (Finance) met Shri Deepak Sinha Advisor(Operations)/ Member (S) and congratulated him on assuming the high office of Advisor (Operations) DoT who may look after the charge of Member (Services) also.

"the absorption of TES Group-B officers in MTNL/BSNL has attained finality. However, the matters related to seniority / court cases in respect of these absorbed employees are still being handled by Estt. Division of DoT. It has been decided that all the matter pertaining to these absorbed TES Group-B Employees will henceforth be dealt by respective PSU only and not by DoT. All the records pertaining to seniority/ court cases in respect of these absorbed employees are being transferred to the respective PSU. This issues with the approval of Secretary (T)"

Advisor (Operations) after seeing the letter assured to reply BSNL in accordance of the DoT letter dated 06.09.2008.
