The AUAB representatives categorically demanded that 3rd Pay Revision should be settled with 15% fitment. The CMD BSNL also stated that the BSNL Management sticks on to it’s earlier position that 3rd Pay Revision should be settled with 15% fitment. The AUAB pointed out that the notification for Parliament election would be issued any time in the month of March, 2019 and that the available time for the settlement of 3rd Pay Revision was very less. The representatives also pointed out that the AUAB would be constrained to restart the agitation, if no favourable settlement comes on time.

11.01.2019:  Meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction (Institutional Mechanism)  and meeting between the AUAB and the Addl.Secretary(T), DoT:

A meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction (Institutional Mechanism) was held in the Sanchar Bhawan yesterday the 10-01-2019. From the AUAB, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU & Convener, Com. Chandeswar Singh, GS, NFTE & Chairman, Com.K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA and Com.Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA participated. Shri.R.K.Kandelwal, Joint Secretary(Admn.) - Convener Committee, Shri S.K.Jain, DDG(Estt.), Sh. Rajeev Kumar DDG(Budget), Sh. Sanjay Agarwal, Director(Estt.), Sh. Pawan Gupta, Director(PSU), from DoT side and Ms.Sujata Ray, Director(HR) and ShriA.M.Gupta, GM(SR) from BSNL side were present in the meeting.
It may be remembered that the AUAB strongly demanded that this Committee should be chaired by the Addl. Secretary(T), and that no result would be achieved if it is presided over by the Joint Secretary level officer. Whatever we predicted, has proved to be correct. The Joint Secretary(Admn.) and the DDG(Estt.) were not able to give any worthwhile information about the status of the issues, viz., 3rd Pay Revision, Allotment of 4G spectrum, Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay and Pension Revision. Both the officers are completely negative on our issues. No worth mentioning outcome came from this meeting.
Hence, after this meeting, the AUAB leaders went and met Shri Anshu Prakash, Addl. Secretary(T) and expressed their total dissatisfaction about the outcome of the meeting. Shri R.K.Kandelwal, Joint Secretary (Admn.), Ms. Sujata Ray, Director (HR) and Shri A.M.Gupta, GM(SR) were also present. Thereafter, full fledged discussion took place with the Addl.Secretary(T).

3rd Pay Revision :
Detailed discussion took place. The Addl. Secretary(T) told that the DoT is ready to settle the 3rd Pay Revision. But, he categorically told that it will be very difficult for the DoT to get the approval of the Cabinet for 15% fitment, since BSNL’s financial position does not allow payment of such high salary. He requested the AUAB and the BSNL Management to discuss and take viable decision and bring to DoT immediately so that this can be taken in next Digital Commission scheduled to be held in the first week of Feb., 2019.

4G spectrum to BSNL:
As regards the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, the Addl. Secretary(T) confidently told that the DoT would do it’s best to get the Cabinet approval for the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL. He expressed hope that the Digital Commission meeting to be held in the 1st week of February would give the necessary clearance, after which it would go for the Cabinet approval.

Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay:
As regards the issue of Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay, the Addl. Secretary(T) told that the Department of Expenditure (DoE) has sought certain details and that the DoT has already written to the BSNL in this regard. The Director (HR) replied that within 1 or 2 days, BSNL would send a reply to the DoT. The Addl. Secretary(T) assured that thereafter prompt action would be taken to get the approval of the DoE.

Pension Revision:
On this issue, the AUAB representatives expressed their dissatisfaction and demanded that prompt action should be taken by the DoT. Thereafter, detailed discussion took place with regards to the fitment, etc. Finally, the Addl. Secretary(T) requested Director(HR) to provide with copies of relevant documents like Govt. orders related to the earlier pension revision documents to the employees, etc.
 

Left out items of 2nd PRC :At the end of the meeting, the Addl. Secretary(T), DoT suggested that the AUAB representatives could again meet him next week. In addition to that left out items of 2nd PRC, Director(HR) BSNL informed that the BSNL Management is taking necessary action to enhance the superannuation benefits from 5% to 8%.

Facts regarding proposed change in the rate of pension contribution would be effective from implementation from 01.01.2007 are as under:-

Basis of the above date is implementation of 2nd PRC in BSNL, as DoP&T OM implemented at time of 6th CPC.

Detailed justification as under :
As per file no . DOT 7-1/2000 /TA-I/17 dated 31.07.2002 pension contribution payable by BSNL will be as per rates prescribed under FR 116 & 117 i.e. Calculation of monthly contribution towards cost of Pension payable during foreign service.

As per the DOP&T OM dated 15th May, 2000, based on the decision of the government on the recommendations of the 5th CPC, pension contribution payable w.e.f 01.01.1996 in respect of employees on foreign service/deputation was based on the maximum of the pay scale. Accordingly, based on this order, BSNL has been paying pension contribution to DoT for the BSNL absorbed employees w.e.f 01.10.2000 on maximum of the scale.

However, based on the recommendations of 6th CPC on pay revision of the Central Govt Employees w.e.f 01.01.2006, the government, vide DOP&T order No. 2/34/2008-Estt. (Pay II) dated 19.11.2009 w.e.f 01.01.2006 in respect of employees on foreign service/deputation, is to be paid on the existing basic pay (pay band plus grade pay) and not on the maximum of the pay scale. It superseded the OM dated 15.05.2000.
This order is effective from the date of implementation of 6th CPC i.e. 1.1.2006. Therefore effective date of implementation n BSNL should be 01.01.2007 i.e. implementation of 2nd PRC.

As per PIB release 26th Dec., 2013 regarding, Disbursement of pensionary benefits to all the combined service pension optee absorbed employees of Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL), sister PSU of BSNL are as under:-

“consequential amendments to the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, adjustments in respect of Government pension liability previously discharged by MTNL and proposed change in methodology in pension contribution as per FR-116 upto 31.12.2005 on the maximum of the IDA pay-scales and with effect from 01.01.2006 on the actual pay drawn in the IDA pay-scales will be made. “

31.12.2018:  Convener, AUAB writes to  Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL regarding  reduction of the retirement age of BSNL employees....<<<Click here for letter>>>>

28.12.2018:  BSNL's Proposal for reduction of retirement age from 60 years to 58 years to DOT: In response to DOT letter dated 6-11.2018, BSNL Management has proposed reduction of retirement age as 58 years instead of 60 years for revision of pay of Board level and below Board level executives of BSNL under 3rd PRC. Even this BSNL's proposal is not acceptable to DoT, mentioning that the financial implication for implementation of 3rd PRC i.e. Rs. 2980 Crore annually could not be substantiated.
It is surprising that BSNL Management has given such proposal to DoT even without discussing with the BSNL Unions and Associations. This is a serious situation and AUAB has to immediately react against such actions of DoT/BSNL.
It is understood that IIM Ahmedabad report on revival of BSNL may also suggest the reduction of retirement age as 58 years instead of 60 years.

27.12.2018:  Meeting with Addl. Secy(T), DoT: AST DoT granted meeting today to AIBSNLEA to discuss regarding

(i) Constitution of committee comprising DOT/BSNL officers and AUAB representatives for AUAB demands: We expressed our concern against non inclusion of the Executive Associations in the said committee and not holding of the Committee meeting. AST appreciated our concern & directed Jt. Secy(Admin), DoT to consider the inclusion of Executive Associations name in the committee & to  take the approval of Secy(T), DoT. We further requested to head the Committee by AST. AST directed Jt. Secy(Admin), DoT to hold the committee meeting at the earliest and mentioned that due to his business it will be difficult for him to head the committee.

(ii) Status of AUAB demands: AST to our query on the settlement of AUAB demands, mentioned that :-

(a) Payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum of the pay scale: AST tried to contact  with Member(S), DoT to discuss the matter but he was not available in the office then he directed DDG(Estt.) to come & discuss the matter with him. Further he mentioned that DoT may immediately reply to DoE that 01.01.2017 can be the cut of date for its implementation at present. We requested him to consider 01.01.2006 as per DoP&T order.

(b) Delinking of pension revision from pay revision of BSNL employees: AST directed Jt. Secy(Admin), DoT, who was present in the meeting, to discuss the matter with Jt. Secy, DoP&PW, Mr. Mathur for consideration & early reply to DoT letter. He also assured to discuss the matter with Member(S)/DDG(Estt.) for early settlement of the issue.

Jt. Secy(Admin), DoT mentioned that the DoT letter dated 19.12.2018 has been given to BSNL to reply the queries made by IFD of DoT. AST mentioned that yesterday they had a detailed meeting with Smt. Rekha Jain & her team, the representatives of IIM Ahmedabad on revival of BSNL & thes IIM Ahmedabad report submission to DoT is expected on 4th Jan.,2019. On the basis of IIM Ahmedabad report Cabinet Note will be moved to Cabinet for the implementation of 3rd PRC.

We further requested AST to hold the committee meeting at the earliest as per the suggestions given by Convener AUAB. The delay in settlement of AUAB demands is causing resentment & frustration among the BSNL employees. To avoid resumption of Indefinite Strike by AUAB, the demands should immediately be settled by DoT as assured by the Hon'ble MOSC & Secy(T), DoT. AST mentioned that AUAB leaders can any time meet with him in the first week of Jan., 2019 to discuss the demands.

CGHS office at Jaipur says it should be 2071 as per DoT & their CGHS HQ Circulars. The CCA Telecom Jaipur also wrote a letter Addl. Director, CGHS Jaipur mentioning that A/C Head 3225 has been changed to 2071 & they didn't accept the application form of the applicants and has sought permission their HQ, New Delhi. Similarly many BSNL pensioners PPOs are not mentioning debiting A/C Head.

DDG(Estt.) & Director(Estt.), DoT assured to take up the matter with CGHS authority at HQ New Delhi for issuing necessary instructions to Rajasthan Circle CGHS Authority.

05.12.2018:  Revision of Pension of BSNL's Pensioners: DDG(Estt.) DoT confirmed that a proposal for delinking of pension revision of BSNL Pensioners from the pay revision of BSNL employees has been sent to DoP&PW for comments/Policy. He advised to pursue in DoP&PW for early reply to DoT.
05.12.2018:  Meeting with Dy. Secretary, DoP&PW New Delhi: GS, President & GS Team(MTNL) and President RTOWA (MTNL) met Dy. Secretary, DoP&PW Sh. Sanjay Wadhavan& discussed regarding DoT proposal for delinking of pension revision of BSNL Pensioner from the pay revision of BSNL employees. Dy. Secretary, DoP&PW confirmed that DoT proposal has been received in his office & is under consideration. We apprised him the need of delinking of pension from pay revision in detail. After detail discussion Dy. Secretary, DoP&PW assured that he will process the case to higher up's and after the approval it will send to DoT. He also mentioned that in case DoT has recommended delinking of pension revision they may not have objections. He assured that reply may be given to DoT within 2-3 weeks of time.

04.12.2018:  The indefinite strike from 03.12.2018 has been deferred till further intimation by AUAB - After meeting held with Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) on 03.12.2018. 

a.  4G Spectrum Allocation to BSNL: Non-allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL has been a major handicap for BSNL growth. The assurance given by the Hon'ble MoS(C) in this regard in 24th Feb., 2018, was not implemented. In yesterday's meeting, the Hon'ble MoS(C) intimated that the Cabinet Note on the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL is already circulated to the other ministries for comments. He also assured to depute a senior officer of the DoT to those nodal ministries to quicken the process. Once this process is completed, the Hon'ble MoS(C) assured to take up this issue in the next Cabinet meeting itself. It is assured now that BSNL is going to get 4G spectrum shortly. This is a major break through in the financial revival of BSNL, and undoubtedly a very big achievement of the AUAB.

b.  Pension revision of  BSNL Pensioners: So far, the DoT has been linking pension revision of BSNL pensioners  with the pay revision of the BSNL employees. They have taken a firm stand that pension revision could be done only when pay revision is done to the serving employees. However, in the meeting held with the Secretary(T), DoT on 02.12.2018, and also in the meeting with the Hon'ble MoS(C) on 03.12.2018, the AUAB is informed that pension revision of the retirees is now delinked from the pay revision of the employees and the matter has been send to DoP&PW for consideration. This is a very big achievement of this strike call. AUAB will continue to take all out efforts to ensure that the revision of pension is done at the earliest.

c. Implementation of government rules in the payment of pension contribution by BSNL: The Hon'ble MoS(C) categorically told that government rule will be implemented, according to which BSNL has to pay pension contribution, based on actual basic pay. A letter has already been gone to the finance ministry, with the recommendation of the DoT. Settlement of this issue, is also a boost for the financial revival of BSNL.    

d.  Left out issues of the 2nd PRC: The BSNL Management has long been demanding that Management should fulfil the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, that 30% of the pay should be contributed by the Management towards superannuation benefits of the Directly Recruited employees. On this issue, the CMD BSNL has assured, in the meeting held with him on 02.12.2018, that BSNL's contribution towards pension contribution will be increased by another 3%, by March, 2019, and the remaining will be increased thereafter in one go. Thus, the non-implementation of the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, in respect of superannuation benefits is also resolved.   

In addition to this, GS AIBSNLEA requested for the revision of Pay scales E-1 by E-2, E-2 by E-3 and upgradation of subsequent pay scales E-3 by E-4, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 as per the BSNL C.O letters addressed to Jt.Secretary (Admin), DoT vide No.1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 6.6.2016 <<<<Click here for letter>>> and vide Letter No. 1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 12.06.2017 <<<<Click here for letter>>>; Hon'ble MoS(C) directed DoT officers for consideration.

e.  3rd Pay Revision of employees: No final settlement is reached in respect of the 3rd Pay Revision of the employees. It was told in the discussion by the Hon'ble MoS(C) as well as by the Secretary(T), DoT, that pay revision of the employees would be done, but 15% fitment cannot be given. The AUAB representatives gave a detailed presentation to the Hon'ble MoS(C), justifying pay revision with 15% fitment. However, it was not accepted. The AUAB feels that this issue needs to be further persued with the DoT, for which some more time needs to be given.

DoT is constituting a committee of comprising officers of DoT/BSNL and the representatives of AUAB to meet fortnightly  to have a follow-up action on the above issues.

The leaders of the AUAB, in the meeting held after talks with the Hon'ble MoS(C), appreciated the fact that the strike call has brought major achievements to the BSNL employees, and that these achievements have got to be consolidated, by way of implementation of the assurances / issuing of letters. As regards the wage revision is concerned, the AUAB has decided to give some more time to the DoT to sort out the matter. However, struggles become inevitable, if the persuasions of the AUAB fail.

20.11.2018:  Meeting with Director(HR), BSNL Board:

GS, President, AGS(Fin.) & AGS(DR) met Director(HR), BSNL Board & requested for issuing the promotion order from AO to CAO. Director(HR) mentioned that yesterday evening Sr. GM(Admin) with the comments of CLO has submitted the file to her good office. Now the proposal submitted by Sr. GM(FP) has been examined and some corrections are suggested to Sr. GM(FP), which will be replied today itself and thereafter promotion orders from AO to CAO will be issued. Thereafter Director(HR) called Sr. GM(FP), GM(Pers.) & CLO to issue the promotion orders after making some corrections in the draft proposal of CPC minutes.

We further requested that now the promotion orders should not be delayed on one pretext or the other. Our members are seriously frustrated & agitated due to abnormal delay in issuing the promotion orders from AO to CAO. We expressed our concern that in the month of June-2018, AO to CAO promotions could not be issued because of the pending stay order. The stay order was vacated two months before but the promotion orders are not issued to fill up even the vacant CAO posts are available. The earlier proposal to upgrade 1200 CAO posts and utilization of 336 MT quota posts was not considered, it has caused serious frustration & resentment among the members of AIBSNLEA. Director(HR) appreciated our concern & assured to issue promotion orders from AO to CAO against the vacant CAO posts.  We are expecting promotion orders from AO to CAO will be issued shortly.

(b) CAO to DGM(Fin.) promotion orders: We requested to issue CAO to DGM(Fin.) promotion orders as the file was approved by CMD BSNL three-four days before. Director(HR) confirmed that CMD approval has been received & the promotion order of 17 nos. CAO to DGM(Fin.) will be issued shortly.

08.11.2018:  AIBSNLEA Kerala Circle submitted their views on Revival of BSNL on 02nd Nov., 2018 to IIM Ahmadabad  engaged by DOT :

AIBSNLEA Kerala was called for submitting their views on Revival of BSNL by the team IIM Ahmadabad engaged by DOT for submitting revival plan for BSNL on 02-11-2018. The IIM Team Comprise of Madam Prof: Rekha Jain, Prof:  Ajay Pandey,  Prof:Vishal Guptha and Shri.Miheer Agnihothri.

Circle Secretary, Kerala Circle  Com V. Shaji, CEC Member TVM Com.Rajan and ADS CO Branch Com. Sherafudeen were from AIBSNLEA Side. Shri. Robin Poddar GM(A/HR) and Shri. Satheesh Jt GM were there as BSNL Management representatives.

AIBSNLEA got the first opportunity to submit  their views. They submitted all the relevant points to the IIM team for the revival of BSNL in a very delightful way. Total interaction was there from all team members  on all our suggestions and all points were noted after amiable discussions.  Our presentation and discussions were lasted for one hour.

AIBSNLEA clearly emphasized that allotment of 4G spectrum and award of 3rd PRC to BSNL employees with 15% benefits will be the two pillars to fix the first stepping stone for the revival of BSNL. While submitting our view for no recommendation for VRS / CRS, committee sought clarification. As of now BSNL suffering to meet funds for disbursing salary, now how can we expect a good VRS package from BSNL employees ?, we replied. We further replied to the comment , if DOT give money for VRS package?, DOT must pump capital for constructive activities of BSNL like 3rd PRC and 4G spectrum not destructive  activities like CRS/VRS. While asking why are we against non-absorption in BSNL, we submitted that BSNL has very talented officers including absorbed ITS/IES and absorbed officers  in Finance department burning for getting timely  salary at least , the non absorbers simply enjoying facilities of BSNL  those are barred for others, along  with 7th CPC benefits. In addition, they are blocking promotion avenues of absorbed officers by occupying higher posts.  

We discontent another association's suggestion that training only motivate employees than 3rd PRC. Though training will definitely motivate employees, the need of the time is 3rd PRC and 4G   spectrum. 

AIBSNLEA Kerala Circle submitted our suggestions in mail to the Team IIM........<<<Click here AIBSNLEA Kerala Circle suggestions for BSNL's Revival>>

26.10.2018:  AIBSNLEA efforts in achieving 30% Superannuation benefit for the BSNL recruited  employees :- AIBSNLEA along with other unions and associations strongly demanded 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited executives as per the recommendations of 2nd PRC. BSNL was giving  18% superannuation benefit  in terms of gratuity, EPF and Medical benefit etc., to BSNL recruited employees. The pension through EPF is a meager amount to DR employees  in comparison to BSNL absorbed employees Pensionary benefit  as per the CCS(CCA)Rules.1972.The EPF contribution of DR employees was also settled by the  vigorous  pursuance of AIBSNLEA  in the year 2004-2005 and persuaded to Provident fund authorities for making it transparent and online assessed. To achieve 30% superannuation benefit AIBSNLEA continued  its efforts initially in BSNL C.O. Establishment cell where the GM(Estt.) was accepting only 1% contribution which  was not agreed by us and on our demand  a committee headed by Smt Geeta Rao the then ED(Finance )was constituted to whom AIBSNLEA pleaded for 12% remaining superannuation  benefit and the committee recommended 3% contribution. In the month of May-June 2016 AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations launched the agitation programme and got achieved 3% contribution from BSNL in superannuation benefit. However, AIBSNLEA continued its efforts to increase it upto 12% and management further considered to increase 2% and total now 5%.AIBSNLEA efforts will continue to achieve 12% contribution to achieve 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees.  .

E2 and E3 standard Pay scales  to JTO and SDE equivalent executives :   

After the 2nd PRC recommendations notified in March -2009,AIBSNLEA demanded standard Pay Scales E2 and E3 to JTO and SDE equivalent executives. And got rectified the Pay anomaly from the Sh. K.C.G.K. Pillai, the then PGM(FP) committee report by giving 5-advance increments in the  revised Pay Scale after 2nd PRC implementation which removed the pay anomaly of JTO/JAO. Initially issue of granting intermediary pay scales E1-A and E2-A to JTO and SDE equivalent executives was sent to DOT/DPE by BSNL but DPE denied to grant intermediately pay scales, these intermediary  pay scale effort was made by BSNL but all the time DPE disagreed BSNL proposal. In view of the DPE denial of intermediately Pay scales AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA demanded the standard pay scales E-2 and E-3 to JTO and SDE equivalent executives and subsequent upgradation of E-3 to E-4,E-4 to E-5, E-5 to E-6 and E-6 by E-7. Accordingly on 06.06.2016 BSNL management sent proposal to DOT recommending replacement of E1-A by E-2, E-2A by E-3 and upgradation of subsequent pay scales of E-3 by E-4,E-4 by E-5 , E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7.This proposal was in  active consideration of  DOT. But after the membership verification of Executive Association in Dec.2016 Majority Association  mounted the pressure on BSNL management to limit the proposal up to the replacement of E1-A by E-2 and E-2A by E-3 only. BSNL Management further send a revised proposal to  DOT limiting replacement of Pay scales E1-A by E-2 and E-2A by E-3 and the subsequent upgradation of  E-3 by E-4,E-4 by E-5 , E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 may be considered at the time of implementation of 3rd PRC. This kind of modification was not appreciated by DOT and they categorically mentioned that in case E1A and E2A are replaced by E2 and E3 Pay scales leaving aside the upgradation of subsequent pay scales will invite litigation and  not logical. In view of this DOT Administration decided to downgrade the E1A by E1 and E2A by E2 standard scales and issued the Presidential orders. In a systematic manner the issue was killed by the so called Majority Association. However, AIBSNLEA will continue its efforts to get replaced E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 and subsequent upgradation of E-3 by E-4,E-4 by E-5 , E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 .

24.10.2018:   AIBSNLEA efforts in getting released about 13000 executives promotion orders through CPCs before implementation of proposed CPSU Cadre hierarchy :

After the Membership verification AIBSNLEA was granted the 2nd Majority Association status and later support Association. Even after winning in the 17 Circles and losing in 14 Circles, AIBSNLEA was granted support Association status on the basis of total votes secured. Against this AIBSNLEA filed a case in the Hon'ble High Court Allahabad which is still pending for decision. After the referendum the so called Majority Association impressed upon the Management that they should only be discussed all the issues no other Association should be heard or allow to function. This created great disunity among the executives and Management very successfully divided the executives to their convenience. So called majority Association instead of killing of other Associations should have taken efforts with all Associations to bring them together on the common issues for the betterment of executive cadres but they avoided this.

Present Status of promotions through CPCs & CPSU CH:  In view of the Court cases on TES Group “B' seniority the promotions were held up. To overcome with this situation AIBSNLEA proposed to implement CPSU cadre hierarchy  in the year 2012 and to achieve this AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA launched agitation programs in February 2013 under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations and thereafter a Committee headed by the then  PGM (FP) Shri S.R. Kapoor was constituted to discuss the matter. AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA were the members of the committee. But due to serious difference of opinion between the staff side and management side members of the committee could not submit the report.

Again second time the then PGM (SR) Shri N.K. Narang was made the Chairman of the committee but this Committee also failed to submit the report. In the year -2015 after the Joining of New CMD Shri Anupam Shrivastava the matter was further raised and he was kind enough to further reconstitute the Committee headed by the Shri. M.A .Khan the then ED (NB), GM (Estt.) and GM (EF) were official side members and AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA were the staff side members. After marathon meetings Mr. Khan Committee submitted its recommendations. AIBSNLEA constantly persuaded for the implementation of Khan Committee recommendations but meanwhile BSNL Management started the MV process of Executive Association which derail the process. Pers. Cell BSNL C.O. was not at all interested to implement Khan Committee report on CPSU Cadre hierarchy and ignored the views of  other Executive Associations and in collusion with so called majority Association diluted the Khan Committee report and tried to limit functional  promotions up to Sr. SDE level only etc. Against this dilution AIBSNLEA strongly protested   with CMD BSNL, Director (HR) and they appreciated the concern of AIBSNLEA and directed PGM (Pers.) to discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA wherein AIBSNLEA demanded Khan committee implementation in the true sense i.e.

  • Functional promotions up to AGM level, 

  • E-5 Grade AGMs to be designated Jt. DGM 

  • Selection on the basis of  numerical benchmarks,

  • Reduction of residency period from SDE/ AO to DE/CAO from 12 years to 5  years,

  • Date of effect from the last DPC conducted and ;

  • SC/ST roaster implementation as per DoP & T guidelines 

  • No functional Post of Sr SDE/Sr AO

  • No MT recruitment beyond JTO /JAO cadre etc.

PGM (Pers.) after detailed discussions incorporated  some suggestions of AIBSNLEA  i.e. functional promotion up to AGM level, Jt. DGM designation E-5 grade AGMs and bench marks on numerical basis etc. This got approved by the MC and thereafter BSNL Board.

AIBSNLEA persuaded up to level of JS (Admin), DoT cum Govt. Nominee Director in BSNL Board for improvement in Draft CPSU instead of the implementation of half cooked policy with severe Bottlenecks . which yielded result as Board while giving approval to CPSU cadre hierarchy directed to complete the ongoing CPCs before implementation of CPSU CH.

BSNL Board approved the CPSU Cadre hierarchy with date effect from its date of notification i.e. prospective date. It created path hole in CPSU Cadre hierarchy concept and most of the existing executives are not benefited with this policy. However, knowing this fact AIBSNLEA convince the BSNL Management to held CPCs to promote all the eligible executives to the next grade on functional basis before implementation of the CPSU Cadre hierarchy. BSNL Management appreciated AIBSNLEA concern and conducted CPCs in all the cadres and promoted about 13000 executives to the next higher grade on functional basis. This could not be tolerated by the so called majority Association and they protested against holding of CPCs and demanded to implement CPSU cadre hierarchy only. But they failed and to create a road block and they demanded parity among all the cadres which was not immediately possible as in all the Cadre there was difference from DoT legacy.  To stall the process of CPCs filed contempt cases against CMD and Director (HR) for issuing promotions. It frustrated the Management and finally all the promotions through CPCs are stalled. AIBSNLEA is still trying that as soon as the contempt cases are settled promotions should be made available through CPCs immediately to benefit the executives' monitory and status. Now so called majority Association is claiming that due to their pressure on CPSU Cadre hierarchy, CPCs has taken place which is beyond truth.

23.10.2018:   Meeting with DDG (Estt)   DOT:

GS & President met DDG (Estt), DOT and discussed regarding

A) Pension Revision: We requested the DDG (Estt), DOT for the Pension Revision of BSNL Pensioners by delinking the Pay Revision as the Pension of BSNL Pensioners is also being paid under CCS (CCA) Pension Rules 1972 as Govt. Pension. DDG (Estt) mentioned that the BSNL Pensioners Pension is being paid as per the CCS (CCA) Pension Rules 1972 but there is no mention about the Pension Revision. Govt. Pensioners Pension is being revised along with the Pay Revision as the practice. Similarly the BSNL Pensioners Pension Revision was also made along with the Pay Revision of BSNL Employees on implementation of 2nd PRC. At present 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL is under consideration in DOT and after the Pay Revision only the Pension can be revised. This stand has been taken by the Establishment Cell of DOT.

B) Payment of Pension contribution on Actual basic pay instead of Maximum of the Pay:  DDG (Estt) informed that n the meeting held on 17.10.2018, Hon'ble MOSC(IC) has directed the Member (Finance) to look in to the matter. Thus some early decision is expected in this regard.

The same has been clarified by the respective Circle CCAs and the Head of Accounts is also given but the Medical Authorities wants a copy of the letter of DOT Budget Cell. We requested DDG (Estt) to settle the issue. DDG (Estt) advised us to give a letter in this regard for necessary action. We will submit the Letter shortly.
