Now based upon that BSNL will submit its final draft on the 3rd PRC report to DoT for comments and onward submission to DPE.

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.

In the opening remarks, Circle President Com Ulhas congratulated all the SSA District Presidents, District Secretaries and all the active Members who have contributed a lot for the success of 1st Membership verification and also requested all the Office Bearers to enhance the membership in their respective SSAs in the days to come.

 

District Secretaries of different SSAs submitted the detailed report.

 

Com. Prahlad Rai, GS in his inspiring speech elaborately explained about latest status of the viability of BSNL,  The HR issues viz., JTO to SDE CPC, SDE to DE CPC, AO to CAO CPC, JAO to CAO CPC CPSU cadre hierarchy, Extension of 30% Superannuation Benefit to the BSNL recruited employees, Scrapping of MT /DGM RRs, Pay fixation of Offg. JTOs, Extension of 22,820 as initial basic to the executive's recruited post 01.01.2007, Standard pay scale implementation and all the activities being undertaken at CHQ level for the betterment and growth of both the executives and BSNL including the pending 3rd PRC benefits. 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 for the early settlement of the court case, 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. Addl. 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 cadres 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 recommendations 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 i.e., 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.

 

Members interacted with GS in respect of DPC, implementation of 3rd PRC, retention to Karnataka Circle.

 

Com Shivakumar President CHQ addressed the members, in respect of pay fixation of JTO officiating FR 22 (I)(A)(1),FR 35(A) other related matters.

Nagaraju N., District Secretary BGTD Com Hiremath presented the detailed report for the period.

Com. Prahlad Rai, GS in his inspiring speech elaborately explained about latest status of the viability of BSNL,  The HR issues viz., JTO to SDE CPC, SDE to DE CPC, AO to CAO CPC, JAO to CAO CPC CPSU cadre hierarchy, Extension of 30% Superannuation Benefit to the BSNL recruited employees, Scrapping of MT /DGM RRs, Pay fixation of Offg. JTOs, Extension of 22,820 as initial basic to the executive's recruited post 01.01.2007, Standard pay scale implementation and all the activities being undertaken at CHQ level for the betterment and growth of both the executives and BSNL including the pending 3rd PRC benefits. 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 for the early settlement of the court case they take serious efforts and get immediate disposes 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 i.e. 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 the proposal is pending in DOT since for the last 3-4 months. Addl. 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 cadres should be recruited in E-1 scale only.  BSNL management is yet to take up the matter with Secretary (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 recommendations 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 i.e. 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.

 

General Secretary congratulated the new team headed by Com Nagaraju N in BGTD and stressed upon the need to strengthen the association and enhance the membership in BGTD. He also assured that the case is presented by the BGTD comrades especially that of JAOs of 2000 batch will be taken up and pursued at CHQ level.

GS, AGS (F), OS (W) along with GS AIGETOA discussed the issue of Pay fixation of Rs. 22820/- to JTOs/ JAOs post recruited 01.01.2007.

We pleaded that Rs. 22820/- pay fixation issue has no relevance with the replacement of E1A and E2A pay scales by E2 and E3, it is a case of Pay anomaly which has to be sorted out by BSNL without the approval of DoT. But, she adhere to her decision.

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.

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.

Udhayasuriyan Org. Secretary (South) CHQ.  A grand merger function was conducted at Hotel Arun Trichy on today morning under the chairmanship of Com Abdul Salam DP AIBSNLEA Trichy.  

 

 The Hall was fully jam packed.  Com. Mohan D.S Trichy welcomed the gathering and whole heartedly welcomed the Leaders and members who have newly joined in AIBSNLEA. Com. Kamaraj delivered inaugural address. Com. Dhanuskodi, Com. Periasamy, Com. Subramanian, Com. Ramanathan, Com. Sakthivel and Com.Asok kumar praised the functioning of AIBSNLEA Circle and CHQ body.  Com. Bangaru Krishnasamy, Circle President AIBSNLEA , Com. Sangli DGM(F) CHTD, Com. M.K. Ganesan ACS, Com. N. Veerapandian, Ex. C.S., and CWC member Com. P. Udhayasurian, C.S CHTD and Organising Secretary(South) CHQ and Com. Sivakumar CHQ president delivered Special Address.

 

Frontline leaders of the AIBSNLOA who have joined in AIBSNLEA assured to strengthern AIBSNLEA in Tamilnadu Circle.  Com. Sivakumar C.S., TN circle assured to safeguard the interest of the comrades who have joined in AIBSNLEA.

 

CHQ President Com. Sivakumar presented shawl to the forfront leaders of AIBSNLOA who have joined in AIBSNLEA.  Com Periasamy delivered vote of thanks.  The merger function was arranged in a grand manner by the Trichy Comrades.

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.

02.02.2017:   Meeting with Director (HR) :

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. PGM (Pers.) informed that the matter is under active consideration for creation of 4 additional DGM (CSS) posts in addition to the existing 6 DGM (CSS) posts on matching saving concept which will shortly be submitted to the competent authority i.e. BSNL MC / Board for approval.

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>>>>

PGM (Estt) informed that the matter was submitted to BSNL MC for consideration but the MC wanted status of the Pay scales of the JTO equivalent cadres in other Govt. departments which have been received but not supporting our stand. However, it is being submitted to MC for consideration. We pleaded that since the JE/AE (CEAT) have been given parity with respect to their pay scale, designation, qualification etc. with JTO/SDE (Telecom) hence, the pay fixation on notional / actual basis has to be given w.e.f. 01.10.2000 to this under privileged group as per the recommendations of Dr. Vinay Shahi committee. PGM (Estt) further mentioned that after Dr. Vinay Shahi committee recommendations, the BSNL Board has considered the pay fixation under EPP for the purpose of counting of residency period w.e.f. 01.10.2000. We again pleaded for its review only.

The meeting was held in congenial environment and point wise deliberation held in accordance with the notice. The point wise discussion was held as below:

 

1.                 Recognition to AIBSNLEA in leading Circles/SSAs:

United Forum requested for extending the recognition to AIBSNLEA as majority association in circles where AIBSNLEA has won. The management side informed that legal opinion has been sought. GS AIBSNLEA requested that he has submitted some fresh inputs and decision may be taken after examining those inputs. Director (HR) assured to look into the same.

It was assured that the CMD and Director (HR) will meet to the Secretary DoT in next week and press for approval of E2-E3 for JTO-SDE equivalent by DoT.

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.

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:

As agreed earlier, the decision shall be taken on MT RRs after discussions with majority association. For DGM RRs, the decision to scrap has already been taken earlier and necessary action in this regard shall be taken soon.

 

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:

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.

21.12.2016:  

Our CHQ Advisor, Shri Alkendra Singh, EE (Electrical) Rajasthan lost his mother on 20.12.2016. At this occasion, we pray almighty God to rest her soul in heaven.

In the first phase of agitation, members successfully organized Massive Demonstration today throughout the country. A large number of executives actively participated in the demonstration. In BSNL Corporate Office, a large number of executives assembled and protested against the indifferent attitude of BSNL Management for not settling the long pending issues and killing the democracy. All the CHQ Office Bearers of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA stationed at New Delhi along with the Circle Office Bearers of these Associations actively mobilized the executives and made the demonstration a grand success. We extend our sincere thanks to all the executives who made demonstration a success.

 20.12.2016:   Meeting With GM (Pers):

Later on GS AIBSNLEA, GS AIGETOA, JS AIGETOA and Advisor AIBSNLEA met GM (Pers) and discussed the issue of pending CPCs (JTO to SDE. SDE to DE, DE to DGM) and issuance of posting orders of LDCE 2015 passed executives. GM (Pers) informed that as suggested by the Forum, efforts are being made to delink the SDE RRs from Board and get it approved from Management Committee. The matter is in the purview of CMD BSNL and Director (HR). We once again requested GM (Pers) to issue provisional posting orders by taking undertaking from the executives. We requested to issue the provisional promotional orders immediately. GM (Pers) assured to take necessary action in this regard.

On the CPC from JTO to SDE, GM (Pers) mentioned that in the next date of hearing in the Hon?ble High court Kerala, senior advocate from BSNL will attend the case and efforts will be made to get the stay order vacated.

CPC from DE to DGM has been initiated to fill up about 400 DGM Posts, ACRs/VCRs are being collected to expedite the CPC.

The reply from DoT is still awaited on the restructuring the AD (OL) Cadre and he has discussed the matter today with Director (PSU), DoT for early clearance.
