15.02.2018  Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi issues orders in OA No. 2649 quashing DOT Order dated 5/7/2017:

Congratulations! AIBSNLEA's consistent efforts yielded results in getting delivered a favourable judgment by the Hon'ble PBCAT New Delhi for quashing the DoT letter dated 05.07.2017 which rescinded grant of an extra increment on post based promotion under EPP. Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi has issued orders in OA No. 2649 quashing DOT Order dated 5/7/2017. While writing the judgment Hon'ble PBCAT has mentioned that "The applicants have basically prayed for retention of para I.II (v) of the EPP (Annexure A-2, which has been duly approved by the Government according to its policy. There has been no policy change as such in the Government in regard to the service conditions of the BSNL employees. The controversy has arisen only on account of P&T audit unnecessarily trying to compare financial upgradation under the EPP with that under the MACP, not realizing that these two schemes are applicable to two separate set of employees.

11. In the conspectus of the discussions in the foregoing paras as well as considering the background of introduction of EPP, I am of the view that the impugned Annexure A-1 order dated 05.07.2017 is not at all legally as well as ethically justifiable. Its retention would create trust deficit between the BSNL employees and the Central Government, which is also unwarranted. Hence, I quash and set aside the impugned Annexure A-1 order dated 05.07.2017. Accordingly, the OA stands allowed.

<<<Click here for the judgment copy >>>>>>

This judgment is a glaring example about the of working of AIBSNLEA which fights sincerely and legally for the interests of all employees without any discrimination.

08.02.2018  Meeting with GM (Pers.), BSNL Corporate Office:

GS, FS and AGS (DR) met GM (Pers.) and discussed about the draft CPSU cadre hierarchy proposal  to be submitted in tomorrows BSNL Board meeting. We requested GM (Pers.) that the suggestions made by AIBSNLEA must be addressed in proposal before being it tabled to BSNL Board.  GM (Pers) intimated that he has already conveyed Director (HR) about the concerns raised by AIBSNLA. He sought brief of major points.

1. Ignorance of length of service and seniority: in proposed draft the length of service and the seniority is categorically ignored as it equalise the services of 25 years with 5 years. Therefore we suggested that instead of implementation from 01.01.2017 it should be from the date of last CPC held in that cadre and the year of recruitment otherwise it will not be beneficial to the executives in the Cadre(s) having more than 5 years' service. GM (Pers) told that it will result in two notional promotions, we told that BSNL is paying the 2 or 3 upgraded scales, so clubbing of services in next upgraded post can be a option.

2. Increase of residency  period for AGM grade from 7 years to 12 years: Residency period from SDE/Sr SDE to AGM and equivalent cadre should be maximum 7 years only.

3. MT Recruitment: We opposed the MT recruitment provision at STS level in the CPSU cadre hierarchy and mention of Adhoc promotions on STS posts. We told that as per the direction given by CMD, there should be non-post based  functional promotion upto AGM level then why the question of Adhoc promotions on AGM posts arises. The Adhoc promotion takes place against the vacancies and post based promotions.

4. Conduction of CPCs before switching to CPSU CH: We reiterated our stand that all pending CPCs should be completed and promotion orders should be issued immediately subject to outcome of court cases as there is no stay on issuing Promotions orders. About 10,000  SDE (T), 3,500 AGM, 500 DGM, 1,000 AO, 1,000 CAO, 100 SDE (Civil), 200 EE (Civil), 150 SDE (Electrical) and some Telecom Factory Posts are lying vacant which are to be immediately filled-up.

 

We also requested to early implementation of Hon'ble Apex court order in Rule 206 and 147 cases. GM (Pers.) assured to work out some way to complete the CPCs and issue promotion orders and to intimate our views regarding  the CPSU Hierarchy to the Management.

08.02.2018  Meeting with CMD, BSNL:

GS and AGS (HQ) met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding:

A. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy Proposal in BSNL: We requested CMD BSNL to consider our apprehensions and suggestions on the proposed CPSU Cadre Hierarchy Proposal in BSNL before being it tabled in the BSNL Board meeting being held on 09.02.2018. CMD BSNL assured to look into.

B. Filling-up of the vacant Gr. “B” and Gr. “A” Posts by conducting the CPCs: We requested CMD BSNL for filling-up of the vacant Gr. “B” and Gr. “A” Posts on adhoc basis subject to out come of the court case. CMD assured to look into the matter.

08.02.2018  Meeting with Director (Estt. ), DOT:

GS and AGS (HQ) met  Director (Estt. ), DOT and discussed regarding:

A. Pension revision of BSNL Pensioners: We requested to consider immediate revision of pension of BSNL Pensioners. Director (Estt.) mentioned that as per ruling position there is provision for revision of pension in isolation till the time pay revision of serving employees in BSNL takes place.  We pleaded that BSNL pensioners are not playing any role in the profit or loses of BSNL and during their service period pension contribution to DOT was paid. Thus their pension revision should be dealt separately. Director (Estt) further mentioned that Hon'ble MOSC (IC) has replied to VIP references that there is no rule exists through which revision of pension of BSNL pensioners is ascertained. The revision of pension can be considered by DOT, only with the consent of Nodal ministries and Cabinet approval after revision of pay scale of serving employees of BSNL.

B. Withdrawal of additional increment on the post based promotion in the same scale under EPP: Director (Estt) mentioned that DOT letter dated 05.07.2017 is still in existence and accordingly action needs to be taken by BSNL. Further any review may be consider only after the receipt of the judgement from Hon'ble PB CAT  New Delhi in the case filed by AIBSNLEA. The judgment copy is yet to be released by Hon'ble PB CAT, ND.

08.02.2018  Meeting with Special Secretary (Telecom), DoT

GS and AGS (HQ) met Shri N. Sivasailam, Special Secretary (Telecom), DoT and discussed regarding:

A. Implementation of 3rd PRC Recommendations in BSNL: We requested to approve the BSNL's proposal on Implementation of 3rd PRC Recommendations in BSNL. SST mentioned that in view of affordability clause of the 3rd PRC recommendations the case of BSNL is not covered, thus DoT has not taken any action and no case is now pending in DoT. We pleaded that pay revision in BSNL is must to keep motivated the employees and in the interest of viability of BSNL. SST mentioned that this point he has already pleaded before Cabinet Secretary in the meeting of secretaries that BSNL is the biggest PSU and having maximum man-power after railways hence affordability clause needs relaxation but the Cabinet Secretary did not consider any relaxation. He further mentioned that now this matter can be reviewed through Political decision, DPE or Cabinet Secretariat only. He advised that you achieve Rs. 32,000/- Crore revenue then only DoT may reconsider the case. 

B. Pension revision of BSNL pensioners: We requested to consider immediately revision of pension of BSNL pensioners. SST mentioned that he is in favor of revision of    pension of BSNL pensioners separately since it has no relevance with the affordability of BSNL since the BSNL will not bear the expenses of pension revision. He advised to discuss the matter with Member (S) and Member (F) for the settlement of the issue. He also assured to discuss the matter with Member (S) and Member (F)

C. Payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay of BSNL employees: We requested to consider the Payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay of BSNL employees. SST mentioned that He is not convinced in this regard and cannot recommend the case to the DOE. He gave justification that when one employee enters in lower scale and retires in higher scale, his pension contribution is varying but the payment of pension is being paid on the last pay drawn which is high. We pleaded that same thing is happening in Govt also but pension contribution is being taken on actual basic pay of the employee. But he was not ready for the argument.

D. Reduction of retirement age from 60 years to 58 Years in BSNL: We enquired about the move of DOT on Reduction of retirement age from 60 years to 58 Years in BSNL. SST mentioned that the issue pertains to revival plan of BSNL and it has no relevance with the implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL and in DOT nobody has power to negotiate on this line on pay revision.

E. MTNL merger with BSNL: SST mentioned that yesterday Hon'ble MOSC (IC) has replied in the parliament that there is no such proposal is under consideration in DOT presently in view of the Financial position of BSNL.

F. Allocation of 4 G spectrum to BSNL: We requested for allocation for 4G spectrum to BSNL for a fair competition in the market. SST mentioned that matter is under active consideration and shortly final decision will be taken.

G. Filling-up of the vacant Gr. B and Gr. Posts in BSNL: We requested SST to use his good office for filling-up of the vacant Gr. B and Gr. A Posts in BSNL for which all the CPCs have been stalled in the name of pending court cases.  SST assured to look into and categorically mentioned that the CPCs can be conducted and the vacant posts can be filled-up on adhoc basis subject to out come of the court case.

17.01.2018  Meeting with CMD BSNL:

CMD BSNL convened a meeting of the members of steering committee of All Unions and Associations of BSNL. Comrade GS attended the meeting wherein CMD BSNL mentioned that this year we all from TM to CMD should concentrate to strengthen BSNL's Sales & Marketing work. He apprised that BSNL's net worth is about 35,000 Crore. The operational profit of BSNL last year was about 4000 Crore that was significant to other private operator. The EBITDA of BSNL was positive of Rs. 1684 Crore. BSNL's asset reserves is Rs. 91684 Crore, land value is about 789 Crore. The loss of BSNL has gone down. BSNL is having only 4200 Crore's loan which is insignificant comparison other Telecom Operators. In view of this BSNL is a very strong organization, neither SICK nor incipient SICK.

 

CMD further mentioned that 4G spectrum and technology is a must in BSNL for the public perception and its requirement. In view of that BSNL Board has already taken a decision in its last Board meeting held on 21.12.2017 to get allocated 4G spectrum from DoT and DPR has been sent to DoT for approval. BSNL needs to pay Rs. 16000 Crore to get allocated 4G spectrum from DoT for next 10 years. BSNL has decided to launch 4G mobile service on 31st January 2018 by improving its existing mobile network in some of the Circles. After allocation of 4G spectrum from DoT, the 4G service will be rolled out throughout the county. We have requested DoT to utilize 5000 Crore remaining equity of BSNL in allocation of the 4G spectrum. Rs. 17500 Crore was Govt. equity in BSNL at the time its formation. Out of which equity of about Rs. 12500 Crore has already been utilized. 50% spectrum charges can be adjusted against equity and remaining amount will be paid in 10 installment in 10 years. In this manner BSNL is trying to get 4G allocation from DoT at the earliest.

 

On the issue of creation of Tower Subsidiary, CMD mentioned that in case the Tower Subsidiary 100% control remains with BSNL than it is beneficial to BSNL otherwise it may not be beneficial. The appointment of CMD Tower Subsidiary Company has been decided by DoT which was not in his notice. All the representatives expressed their resentment against the creation of Tower Subsidiary.

 

Regarding 3rd PRC, we expressed our serious concern against delay in DoT in giving approval for its implementation in BSNL. We explained that revision of pay of BSNL employees is a must to keep them motivated and in the interest of BSNL's viability. The revision of pension of BSNL pensioners should also be settled immediately by DoT. We requested CMD BSNL to use his good office to get the approval of Hon'ble MOS (C) (I/C) in this regard. CMD assured to discuss the matter further in DoT and Ministry.

 

CMD appealed that despite of some constraints we all employees of BSNL should concentrate to increase its revenue by strengthening Sales and Marketing.

10.01.2018  Meeting with DDG (Estt.) DoT:

a) GS, President met DDG (Estt.) DoT and discussed regarding revision of pension for BSNL pensioners. We requested to consider revision of BSNL pensioners de-linking with the revision of pay scale of BSNL Employees since, BSNL pensioners are no way related with the profit and losses of the BSNL. The pension contribution has already been paid to DoT during their service, so now there is no justification of linking revision of pension with pay revision. DDG (Estt.) mentioned that they are waiting for the decision on pay revision of BSNL executives and thereafter pension revision of BSNL pensioners will be processed. He explained the reason that incase the pension of the BSNL pensioners before 3rd PRC implementation on the basis of 2nd PRC is revised than the pension revision of the existing pensioners after 01.01.2017 will be lesser which will create anomaly. We explained that some formula has to be evolve by DOT to revise the pension and to avoid such anomalies. DDG (Estt.) assured to look into the matter.

b) Delay in settlement of pensionary benefits of BSNL pensioners who retired after July-2017 on the pretext of DoT letter dated 05.07.2017. We explained that against DoT letter dated 05.07.2017 stay order has been granted by Hon'ble CAT Jaipur in favor of 28 applicants and Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi has also allowed the OA filed by AIBSNLEA requesting to quash the said order of DoT dated 05.07.2017. DDG (Estt.) mentioned that a clarification is being issued to BSNL and CCAs to settle all the pension cases on the basis of DoT letter dated 05.07.2017 immediately and the cases of the applicants in the court may be decided subject to outcome of the court cases. He assured to issue this instruction in next week itself. The 28 applicants in Jaipur CAT Bench has filed contempt of Court which will be heard in the next week and the judgement in Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi is expected to be delivered in the next week.

PGM (Pers) informed that shortly he will hold a meeting of all concerned sectional officers to study the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgments for their implementations.

C CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal: PGM (Pers.) mentioned that due to the stay granted by the Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam, the BSNL Board has not approved the proposal moved by the Pers. Cell.

The case was heard on 09.01.2018 and posted for further hearing on 18.01.2018. But the stay is continued. 

D CPC for DE to DGM left out cases: We requested for issuing promotion orders from DE to DGM left out cases. PGM (Pers.) mentioned that the matter was sent to CGM (Legal) for legal opinion which has now been received and on that basis further action will be taken.       

09.01.2018  Meeting CMD BSNL:

GS President along with the representatives of All Unions and Associations of BSNL met CMD BSNL and expressed our resentment against the creation of Tower Subsidiary and appointment of JS (A)/DoT as the Chairman of the Subsidiary Company.

 DOT vide its letter no.79-51/2017 -SU dated 21.12.2017, has appointed Shri Amit Yadav (IAS) ,Joint Secretary (Admin), DOT as CMD of tower subsidiary company of BSNL. It  seems that the Government is moving fast to operate tower subsidiary. It is surprising that as per Union Cabinet decision the tower subsidiary will be fully owned by BSNL , but after seeing the DOT order it is difficult to understand that whether tower subsidiary will be controlled directly by DOT or through BSNL. We strongly oppose such active move of Government to fragment BSNL assets.

When the Chips are down

 

What you Gonna do, when the chips are down?

Now that chips are down,

Win if you can, give if you must;

Ain't nobody but yourself to trust;

Help yourself, to hell with the rest,

Even to foster parents, who now don't love you best.

What you gonna do when the chips are down?

Now that chips are down,

Aim for the goal, shoot to kill;

If you don't do it, then other one will;

Though time ain't easy, people ain't fair,

But BSNL got to fight for its rightful share.
