The CMD BSNL held a meeting today, with the major unions and associations. Com. Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA , Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU and Com. K. Sebastin, GS, SNEA attended the meeting. Com. C. Singh, GS, NFTE is on tour. The following issues were discussed in detail wherein CMD BSNL appraised that a very important HOCC is being held in BSNL CO on 24th & 25th Sept. 2018. in this meeting mainly the developments activities and strategies to earn more revenue will be discussed. 

"BSNL At Your Door steps" will be launched on 24.09.2018: The AUAB has already taken decision to conduct "BSNL At Your Doorsteps" movement, to boost BSNL's revenue collection, by stepping up sales and marketing of the Company. The AUAB has also desired that, this movement should be jointly launched by the AUAB and the Management. This issue was discussed in today's meeting.

Finally, the following decisions are taken.

a.      "BSNL At Your Doorsteps" will be jointly launched by the AUAB.

b.     The inauguration of this movement will take place at BSNL Corporate Office on 24th September, 2018 evening. All the CGMs will also participate in this launching. (HOCC is taking place in Corporate Office on 24th & 25th September, 2018).

CMD BSNL also told that he will try to bring BSNL's Brand Ambassador on this occasion.

CMD BSNL will handover flood relief amount to the CM, Kerala.

The AUAB has already requested the CMD BSNL to deduct one day's basic pay from willing officials. In today's meeting the representatives requested that the deducted amount should be handed over by the CMD BSNL, to the Chief Minister of Kerala.

Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL: The representatives expressed their concern over the undue delay in the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL and also over the network congestion prevailing in many parts of the country. They drew the attention of the CMD to media reports, which have quoted the Hon'ble MoS(C) as saying that, 4G spectrum would be allotted to BSNL only in December, 2018. The CMD BSNL told that, he is taking all out efforts for the early allotment of 4G spectrum and recently he has again written an emotional letter to Secy(T), DoT for immediate allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL which has 40 watt Tx capacity whereas BSNL's 2G/3G spectrum is having 20Watt Tx capacity  and this is the urgent need of hour.

Subsidiary Tower Company: The AUAB is opposing the Subsidiary Tower Company tooth and nail. Decision has been taken to stall the Board meeting, and also for total walk out by the Executives and Non- Executives, in case Board meeting is scheduled, for giving approval for the appointment of CMD of Subsidiary Tower Company. This issue came up for discussion today.

Consolidation is taking place in a big way in the telecom sector. All the small operators have closed down their business. After the recent merger of Vodafone and Idea, there are only 4 operators in each circle. BSNL, Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone - Idea. Under these circumstances, there will be very less business for the Subsidiary Tower Company and now it has no relevance to operate tower subsidiary company.  Now there is no sustainability of tower subsidiary company. The BSNL Management has informed this to the government, through it's letter, written a last week only. This was explained by the CMD BSNL in today's meeting.

Outsourcing of passive maintenance of BSNL's towers:The representatives expressed their concern at the outsourcing. The CMD BSNL replied that at present the "uptime" of BSNL towers is only 80% - 85%. The uptime will increase to 97%, due to this outsourcing. Further, BSNL will save Rs.100 crore by way of maintenance expenditures through outsourcing. While the active maintenance of towers would be continued to be done by BSNL, only the passive maintenance, including provisioning  of batteries, engine alternators, diesel, payment of EB bill, etc., would be done by the outsourced party. The total payment for this will be Rs.6633 crores. The CMD BSNL further told that, the cases filed in the Delhi High Court and Supreme Court, against this outsourcing, by vested interests, are already dismissed.

BSNL's 3500 of BSNL CSCs to be used by UIDAI:The CMD BSNL informed that UIDAI has decided to utilise 3500 of BSNL's CSCs for Aadhaar authentication. For this, the UIDAI will give money for Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure (OPEX) to BSNL. The CMD BSNL told that this would help BSNL.

CMD BSNL desired that govt. should allot new projects to BSNL.

It is understood that the Competent Authority is not happy due to filing of the Contempt cases against CMD BSNL, Director(HR) and other Officers for issuing the promotion orders on JTO to SDE and SDE to DE. The contempt cases have been filed in the Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam and Hon'ble CAT, Chandigarh by some DR. JTOs and Shri Ramesh Kumar, SDE & District Secretary, SNEA Rothak, Harayana respectively.

She also mentioned that the earlier proposal to upgrade the post in CAO grade is pending in Pers. cell for clearance. After the clearance and approval of the competent authority the upgradation to CAO posts will be considered. She assured for early issuance of the promotion order to fill up the vacant CAO posts the VCRs of the eligible AOs have been called from vigilance cell. We requested to issue promotion order subject to availability of VC at circle level.

We persuaded in the Pers. Cell to the concern officers for giving early clearance to the AO to CAO promotions against vacant CAO posts and upgradation to CAO posts.

30.08.2018  Advocate report on the ITS Absorption Case in Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi: This is to inform you that the captioned matter was listed today (i.e. 29.08.2018) as Item No. 9 in Court No. 1 before a Bench Comprising of Hon'ble Justice (Retd.) Narasimha Reddy and Hon'ble Member Ms. Aradhana Johri at the Principal Bench, Central Administrative Tribunal.
When the matter was called out I sought a passover on behalf of Mr. Rao. However, the Bench was not inclined to passover the matter.
Accordingly, I apprised the Bench of the facts of the matter and the decision of the Hon'ble High Court in W.P. 22515/2012 decided on 17.04.2012 and the mandamus issued therein. Thereafter, the Bench was informed of the subsequent Orders passed by the High Court whereby the extensions sought by DOT was rejected. On reading the Impugned Orders dated 11.03.2013 issued by DOT & BSNL, the Bench was of the view that there seems to be partial compliance, and in any event if the same are in violation of the Orders passed by the High Court then the appropriate remedy would lie before the High Court. On this, I informed the Bench of the earlier Writ Petition that had been filed by the Applicants, whereby they were directed to seek an appropriate remedy, which was before the Central Administrative Tribunal. The Hon'ble Bench also opined that the Contempt Proceedings were pending in the High Court and the Applicants should agitate the issue therein. I submitted that the remedy available to the Applicants under the Contempt proceedings is separate from the present proceedings since the Court hearing the Contempt can either order punishment or imprisonment, and cannot grant the relief of quashing the Impugned Orders dated 11.03.2013, which can only be done by the Tribunal. The Bench was also informed of the Order passed by the High Court directed the CAT to proceed with the OA and that the pendency of the Contempt should not come in way of the OA.
After hearing the parties, the Hon'ble Bench was of the view that until the matter is pending in the High Court, the CAT cannot give any direction since ultimately it would be bound by the decision of the High Court. Accordingly, the Original Application has been disposed of with liberty to file a fresh OA after the decision of the High Court.

BRIEF REPORT OF THE 3rd CENTRAL WORKING COMMITTEE MEETING OF AIBSNLEA HELD AT DeHRADUN FROM 18th August, 2018 to 19th August, 2018:

 

The 3rd Central Working Committee Meeting of AIBSNLEA held at  'Dev Bhoomi' Dehradun, Uttaranchal on 18th August, 2018 and 19th August, 2018. The Flag Hosting was done by the Com. President and the General Secretary. After the flag Hosting, Com. President in his opening remarks told about the achievement of the AIBSNLEA for the promotion of more than 12000 Executives in last one month span. He requested all to use their positive gesture in enhancing the membership of the AIBSNLEA. He requested all to go through the agenda and involve themselves for the positive participation in the CWC deliberations till end for getting the fruitful results. Com. President mentioned that due to the historical achievements, the believe of executives on AIBSNLEA has increased.

Com. Brij Mohan Dhyani, CS Uttaranchal and Host of the CWC Meet, delivered the welcome address. In his address Com. Dhyani welcomed all guests coming to Dev Bhoomi- Dehradun, from all nook and corners of the country. He told that although the UTTARANCHAL is small Circle but he has tried his level best to make the CWC a comfortable one. CP Uttaranchal Com. L.K. Thapaliyal Ji welcomed the President CHQ by garlanding. CWC Uttaranchal Bisit Ji welcomed the GS AIBSNLEA by garlanding. All CHQ office bearers, Advisors and consultants were warm welcomed by garlanding the Host Circle. Haldwani branch and CWC Uttaranchal Bisit ji presented shawl to GS. All CWC participants were welcomed by presenting Uttaranchal traditional CAP.

After the welcome program Com President appealed all to go through the agenda and tell about the modification. CWC approved the agenda program. One minute silence was observed in the memory of departed comrades.

Self introduction was made by all the comrades on the appeal of President CHQ. All the CWC participants made their self introduction.

After the self introduction the CWC Dehradun confirmed the minutes of the CWC Thiruvanatpuram. CWC Dehradun unanimously confirmed the minutes.

Com. President appealed all the Circle Secretaries to deposit the legal and Diary payments.

Com. Ganeshan from Chennai donated Rs 15000 to CHQ.

Most of the Circles actively participated and placed their report in the CWC Meet at Dehradun expect A&N Circle, ALTTC GZB Circle and J&K Circle due to unavoidable reasons.

After completion of the Circle Secretary reports, Com. President requested Com. GS to Summed up.

Com. GS Summed up with the reply of the queries raised by all the Circle Secretaries.

On the issue of the DGM to Jt. GM promotion, Com. GS informed that we are perusing the case. Com. GS told that after the persuasions of AIBSNLEA only the promotions of JTO to SDE LDCE quota (about 2000) has issued. In SCF 3000 JTOs of 1999 batch have promoted. DRs were not been taken into consideration by the intervention of SCF by the SNEA.  We demanded to promote list No. 8 and 9 and Management agreed on list no. 8 but SNEA raised the issue to bring parity among the cadres in promotions, which has derailed the process. Earlier SNEA was impressing the management to implement the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy w.e.f. 31st July, 2018 but when they get failed in getting its implementation then to stop the promotions through CPCs they demanded parity. The fact remains that there was never parity among the various cadres in promotions due to various reasons even that prevailed in DoT. Management got disappointment due to such attitude of the Majority Association and stop the promotion through CPCs. AIBSNLEA continued to pursue  with CMD BSNL , Director(HR) , GM(Pers.) for issuing the promotions through CPCs in all disciplines and to maintain equalization in the cadres as far as possible. AIBSNLEA also extended its sincere gratitude and thanks to the managements for issuing 12,000 executives promotions within a month time, which has became a history.  AIBSNLEA is also demanded implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy but before its implementation all the existing eligible executives should be promoted to the next grade as per the existing RRs. We also briefed the management that in case CPSU CH  is implanted without conducting CPCs there will be court cases and in case the stay order is granted then BSNL Management will not be in a position to issue any promotion order through CPCs or CPSU CH. BSNL Management has appreciated our concern and assured to examine our apprehensions and for an early  action in this regard.

AIBSNLEA  efforts will continue to ensure holding of CPCs for the promotion for all the eligible executives before implementation of CPCU CH to provide  their service waitage  and financial benefits.

Com. GS told that AIBSNLEA played a big role in vacating the stay on JAO to AO promotion and 2300 promotions took place. In AO to CAO Court case BSNL Management filed the MA on our persuasion only. Stay order date on catch up Rule of DE to DGM hearing is 05.09.2018. DE to DGM contempt case date of hearing is 07.09.2018. AIBSNLEA impledment in AO to CAO case will derail the process.  GS informed that we will pursue the matter of GM (TR) in AP Circle. GS assured to take up the issue of posting new staff at BRBRAITT.

Regarding one day salary to Kerala calamity, Com. GS informed that we will support the donation of one day salary to Kerala Calamity. GS explained that the meeting at Jaipur was extremely necessary due to MV and was held by the approval of President and CHQ Office Bearers at ND. GS explained that the meeting at Delhi was also necessary for the issuance of the promotions before 30.06.2018. So it was not the wasteful expenditure at that time. To have second line leadership, Com. GS explained that AIBSNLEA have five Asstt. General Secretaries along with 15 CHQ Office Bearers who are leading the organization and they are available to serve the association as second line leadership if required.

Regarding the legal fund Com. GS told that now the subscription is directly coming to CHQ so that we have funds but there are so many legal cases AIBSNLEA is fighting. Now Rule 206 has been misinterpreted by the BSNL CO. Thus seprate legal fund is must.

GS assured to take up the matter of Hungama Service with Management. GS assured to takeup the matter of delayed GPF payment in HP Circle. GS informed that 28.08.2018 Board Meeting the AD (OL) case will be taken up.  Com. GS assured that on E-2  & E-3 payscales  revised proposal has been again sent to DPE and we will discuss the case with Secy (T). GS assured that soon our DRs will get the benefits of 7% SAB. GS assured to pursue the matter of Rs. 22820 pay with CMD BSNL. GS assured to take up the Android mobile phone matter with Mgmt. For GTI GS told that we are perusing the case. We will discuss the Death Relief Fund with the Management.

Cell which is of the opinion that on the recommendations made by the Expert Committee, the Hon'ble Supreme Court has refrained from passing any order thereon, except that 14 persons who were said to have been given promotions – 3 persons in BSNL and 11 persons in MTNL may not be now disturbed. This is misinterpretation by the Pers. Cell. We requested Director (HR) to have an independent advice from the ASG of India on the plan of the Pers. Cell for the implementation of the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgments dated 21.01.2015 and 14.12.2017.

She also directed GM (Pers) to issue a clarification immediately that consequent to revised seniority, the pension of the retired executives will not be reduced. She also assured us that on receipt of the advice from the ASG the implementation plan will be reviewed and modified accordingly.

 

AIBSNLEA is consulting and taking legal advice from its Advocate who have pleaded the case in the Hon'ble Supreme Court as well as in the Expert Committee and accordingly on the that basis further action will be taken immediately.

 

Conduction of CPCs in all the disciplines:

We further requested Director (HR) to conduct CPCs of all the eligible executives in all the disciplines to be promoted to the next grade before implementation of the CPSU CH. Director (HR) directed GM (Pers) to put up the proposal for conducting the CPCs immediately to CMD BSNL for approval. GM (Pers) assured an early action in this regard.

GS, President, AGS (HQ) and AGS (DR) met Director (HR), BSNL Board and extended  invitation for attending the Open Session of the CWC meeting being held at Dehradun. Director (HR) accepted our invitation and told that she will try to attend the CWC of AIBSNLEA, Dehradun. We further discussed regarding:

A) Implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL: We apprise Director (HR) about the AUAB meeting with Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) held on 01.08.2018. We informed her that the Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) has assured to discuss our demands with Secretary Telecom on 3.8.2018. We also mentioned about our meeting with CMD BSNL held on yesterday wherein CMD BSNL had mentioned that the Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) has held discussions with him also wherein he has categorically mentioned that DOT should decide payment of Pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the Pay scale and there after the implementation of 3rd PRC recommendation in BSNL should be left to the BSNL Management. Director (HR) also endorsed the same thought and advised us to continuously pursue with MOSC (I/C) and Secretary (T).  

B) CPCs to be conducted in all disciplines for the eligible Executives before the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy:  We again extended our sincere gratitude and thanks to Director (HR) for issuing promotion orders for 12000 Executives within a period of one month. But we expressed our serious concern against the statement of GM(Pers) to limit the CPCs up to the year 2005 only and not for upgrading the posts to promote the eligible executives of all disciplines before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. Director (HR) instructed her OSD to have a meeting today afternoon itself with GM (Pers) in the presence of GM (SR) to examine and calculate actual requirement of up-gradation of the posts up to a particular year taking as a reference point i.e. Last CPC conducted or the Year of Recruitment in all disciplines.    

C) Implementation of Rule-206 of SDE Seniority: We expressed our serious concern against the mis-interpretation of Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement on Rule-206 of SDEs Seniority case by Pers Cell of BSNL Corporate Office. We told Director (HR) that we had requested her self to seek legal opinion from Senior Advocate. But, unfortunately, Pers Cell BSNL Corporate Office never took the legal opinion from an Advocate and instead as per the advice of legal cell of BSNL Corporate Office has taken the approval from the competent authority. Thus the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement has been made in fructuous which will cause further litigation. Also will invite vigilance complaint against the mishandling of the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement for which the reasons are best known to Pers Cell. We further requested Director (HR) for her kind intervention and giving a direction to the Pers Cell to seek the Legal opinion from an Advocate instead of depending on the Legal Advice given by the Legal Cell of BSNL Corporate Office. Director (HR) assured to look in to the matter.

D) Clarification on transfers on looking after arrangements in Maharashtra Circle: We expressed our serious concern toward non-issuance of the clarification on transfers on looking after arrangements in Maharashtra Circle by the Pers. Cell. GM (SR) informed that he is going to issue a reminder in this regard shortly. 

E) Harassment of AIBSNLEA Office Bearers in Amritsar SSA of Punjab Circle: We expressed our serious concern over the harassment of AIBSNLEA Office Bearers in Amritsar SSA of Punjab Circle by the SSA Administration. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter

A) Implementation of 3rd PRC  with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL: On the query of CMD BSNL regarding AUAB meeting with Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) held yesterday, we appraised him that the Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) has assured to discuss our demands with Secretary Telecom on 3.8.2018 . CMD BSNL mentioned that the matter was discussed by him also with the Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) wherein he has requested that DOT should decide payment of Pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the Pay scale and there after the implementation of 3rd PRC recommendation in BSNL should be left to the BSNL Management. However he assured that in case he is invited by the Hon'ble MOSC(I/C)  during the discussion with Secretary Telecom on this issue he will further suggest the same.

B) CPCs to be conducted in all disciplines for the eligible Executives before the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy :  We  further extended our sincere  gratitude and thanks to CMD BSNL for issuing promotion orders for 12000 Executives within a period of one month. But we expressed our serious concern against the statement of GM(Pers) to limit the CPCs up to the year 2005 only and not for upgrading the posts to promote the eligible executives of all disciplines before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. CMD BSNL advised that the matter should be discussed with the DIR(HR) who has clarity in this regard. He further mentioned that no such decision is taken at his level to limit the promotions up to the year 2005 only.  However  AIBSNLEA will discuss the matter with DIR(HR) shortly.

C) Implementation of Rule-206 of SDE Seniority : We expressed our serious concern against the mis-interpretation of  Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement on Rule-206 of SDEs Seniority case by  Pers Cell of BSNL Corporate Office. We requested the DIR(HR) to seek the legal opinion from a Senior Advocate accordingly Dir(HR) directed the Pers Cell of the BSNL Corporate Office to seek the legal opinion from  an  Advocate  but the Pers Cell BSNL  Corporate Office never took the legal opinion from an Advocate but as per the legal advice of legal cell of BSNL Corporate Office has taken the approval from the Competent authority. Thus the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement has been made in fictitious which will cause further litigation.   Also will invite vigilance complaint against the mishandling of the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement for which the reasons are best known to Pers Cell. We further requested CMD BSNL for his kind intervention and giving a direction to the Pers Cell to seek the Legal opinion from an Advocate instead of depending on the Legal Advice given by the Legal Cell of BSNL Corporate Office, CMD BSNL assured to look in to the matter.

D)  Grant of Pay  Rs.22820/- to the JTOs/JAOs post recruited 2007 : We requested the CMD BSNL to consider for granting of Pay Scale of Rs.22820/- to the JTOs/JAOs post recruited 2007 to remove the pay anomaly after implementation of the 2nd PRC report and to avoid their huge Pay loss.

Shri M.B. Rajesh, MP, Kerala, has taken the initiative to arrange the meeting between the AUAB and the Hon'ble MoSC(I/C), and he was also present during the discussion.

The AUAB leaders who participated in today's meeting are Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU, Com.Sheshadri, Dy.GS, NFTE BSNL, Com.Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com.K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA,  Com.Ravi Shil Verma, GS, AIGETOA,  Com.Suresh Kumar, GS, BSNL MS, Com. S.D. Sharma, GS, ATM BSNL and Com.J. Vijaya Kumar, Dy.GS, TEPU.

The AUAB leaders expressed their serious concern against the non-implementation of the assurances given by Hon'ble MoSC(I/C), in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, with the representatives of AUAB. They further pointed out that, during the last five months, not even a single meeting has been granted by the Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) and the Secretary (T), to discuss about the implementation of the assurances.

1)  Assurance was given by Hon'ble MoSC(I/C), to get the affordability clause of 3rd PRC relaxed, w.r.t. BSNL. However, the DoT has not started the preparation of the Cabinet Note for getting the affordability clause of the 3rd PRC relaxed for BSNL.

2)  Direction was given by Hon'ble MoSC(IC) to the Secretary(T), to take action for collecting pension contribution from BSNL on actual basic pay, as per the government order, instead of the maximum of the pay scale. DoT has not taken any action in this regard till date.

3)  Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) directed the Secretary, Telecom, in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, to take necessary action for revision of pension of BSNL Pensioners. No action has been taken so far.

4)  Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) gave assurance in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, for allocation of 4G Spectrum to BSNL, but so far same is not allotted to BSNL.

After discussion on the above issues, the Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) stated that the issue of 4G Spectrum allocation is in the hands of the government, and that it would be done shortly.

01.08.2018: Meeting with GM(Pers) : GS, President, met  GM(Pers) and discussed regarding

A) Regarding JTO to SDE Promotion:   We demanded that all the eligible JTOs should be promoted to SDE (T) by filling-up of   7500 vacant SDEs posts. GM(Pers) informed that the process has already been started to fill up all the vacant SDEs Posts. The necessary data from most of the Circles have been received.

He further mentioned that the Competent Authority  has advised to expedite CPCs in those cadres where the vacancies are available. The earlier upgradation in some cadres was done to overcome with the pending court cases. We further pleaded that to bring equilibrium among the cadres the upgradation/restructuring in the cadres is needed. GM(Pers) mentioned that now the Competent Authority has desired to bring equalization among the cadres,  only  up to the year 2005 as a reference point of Last CPC conducted or the Year of Recruitment so that upgradation in the cadres can be avoided.

It seems that the Competent Authority has taken such decision under the pressure mounted by some Association to bring parity among the cadres up to the year 2013 of JAO to AO Promotion which is not practically possible in all the cadres without upgradations. Perhaps the Management has taken such decision to limit promotions up to the year 2005 instead of year 2010 and thereafter. We strongly opposed such decision and mentioned that such decision will  disappoint and demotivate thousands of Executives at this stage those who are eagerly waiting for their promotion through CPCs. GM (Pers) further mentioned that the matter may be discussed with the Competent Authority only to revise the decision.

B) SDE to DE promotions  :  We requested  that the Promotion orders should be issued to reduce stagnation in the cadre of SDE (T) by promoting all the eligible SDEs promoted up to the year 2010. GM(Pers) mentioned that at  present no exercise is being made for the promotion from SDE to DE wherein upgradation is needed and the same is not agreed by the Competent Authority now.

C) Regarding AO to CAO promotion : GM(Pers) mentioned that  promotions from AO to CAO can be issued against the vacant CAO posts only after the vacation of the stay order on promotion from Hon'ble Chandigarh CAT. Now upgradation is not accepted by the Competent Authority.

D) DE to DGM Promotion: We requested for issuing DE to DGM promotion. GM(Pers) mentioned that the promotion orders from DE to DGM can be issued after the vacation of the stay order on promotion from Hon'ble Chandigarh CAT on catch up Rule. The case is listed for hearing in the Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh on 7.9.2018 along with AO to CAO case.

E) Restructuring of AD(O/L) cadre:  We requested GM(Pers) for issuing the restructuring order of AD(O/L) cadre as the clearance has been received from DoT. GM(Pers) mentioned  that it will be put up to the BSNL Board for approval and thereafter order will be issued. We informed that all the earlier Restructuring proposals were only approved by the Management Committee of the BSNL Board. GM(Pers) assured to look in to the matter.

Some Association in the name of parity in the promotions among all the cadres has tried to derail the  process of CPCs  and always mounting pressure on Management for the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and also opposing  promotion of Executives through CPCs pleading that BSNL is loosing money  due to one additional increment benefit in the promotions through CPCs, And  threatening the BSNL Management to stop CPCs otherwise they will go on Agitation, which has become a routine threat from them. Some Officers having over jealousy attitude and sitting in the BSNL Management are also happy with this kind of situation where the Group 'B' level Executives continue to stagnate in one cadre for more than 15 years.

AIBSNLEA efforts will continue to get promoted all the eligible executives to the next higher post before implementation of CPSU CH. AIBSNLEA efforts have already yielded results in getting released 12,000 executives promotions despite of many hurdles. Let us, come together to defeat the such negative forces in BSNL.

As reported by our counsel the matter was listed on 25.07.2018 as Item No. 63 in Court No. 7 before Hon'ble Justice Siddharth Mridul at the Delhi High Court.

 

Mr. Rajshekhar Rao appeared on behalf of the Petitioners. Mr. Vikram Jetly and Mr. Jasmeet Singh were present on behalf of the DOT. Senior Advocate Mr. Saket Sikri appeared on behalf of BSNL. Mr. Mittal assisted by Mr. Krishna, appeared on behalf of the ITS Officers. 

 

The matter was argued considerably. Mr. Mittal made submissions on behalf of the ITS Officers. The Hon'ble Judge while keeping in mind the decision passed by the High Court, observed that there was a practical difficulty in placing the ITS officers in DOT and was inclined to adjourn the same on the ground of no urgency. Thereafter, Mr. Rao requested the Court to hear the Petition filed by BSNL employees in as much as they were directly aggrieved by the contumacious conduct of the Respondents since the ITS officers were occupying senior positions in BSNL because of which no promotions were being made amongst the BSNL employees. Mr. Rao relied upon the DOT Memorandums and the subsequent decisions passed by the High Court, where time and again the Courts have denied the proposals given by DOT as was sought to be done by way of the Impugned Orders. On this, the Hon'ble Judge orally observed that in so far as the BSNL employees are concerned, DOT ought to consider the grievance of the BSNL employees and has re notified the matter on 25.10.2018

13.07.2018 AN OPEN LETTER BY THE MEMBERS OF AIBSNLEA

(To whom it may concern)

 

Subject:      Ethics, Decency and Norms in Trade Unionism.

 

Comrade,

 

We have noted with grave concern the write up appearing in your website abusing our GS AIBSNLEA Prahlad Rai. We can understand the your frustration  because of the non implementation of CPSU CH on 1st July for which you have claimed your victory leaps and bounds in advance on one hand and implementation of CPCs of various cadres promoting 12000 executives as per demand of AIBSNLEA on the other. Although, AIBSNLEA is never against CPSU CH but is logically demanding filling up of all vacant posts before implementation of CPSU CH which management has accepted and is in process of implementation. This is indigestible to you and every 2nd day you are threatening for agitation which never taking place. When management is working on war-footing for promoting executives, you are threatening agitation. From this itself, one can understand your level of frustration.

 

Now you are personally after Prahlad Rai GS AIBSNLEA. You have unnecessary raised the issue of retirement date of Prahlad Rai being fully aware of the constitutional provisions of AIBSNLEA. As at present four CHQ office bearers are retired but all are holding their posts till the pendency of present body as per the Constitution of AIBSNLEA. BSNL management is aware of it. But you have singled out only Prahlad Rai and raised objection on his functioning as GS. If any violation of REA rules took place, BSNL management is there to look after, is it ethical on your part to raise such issues with the management just to settle your personal score. You have even threatened to boycott the meetings which will be attended by Prahlad Rai as GS AIBSNLEA because he is retired, forgetting the fact that you have accompanied a retired person as your President in several meetings for one and half years and still you are accompanying him as Chairman. You are even ready to compromise with the unity of unions and associations if they support or speak in favour of Prahlad Rai for the sake of satisfying your ego.

 

Actually you are afraid of the wonderful performance of Prahlad Rai and his team which stands in the way of your desire to establish your one-upmanship image in BSNL. You are thinking that in the absence of Prahlad Rai you can easily establish your desired image. But we are sorry comrade, he will continue to lead AIBSNLEA for some more time and will be replaced by another even more powerful Prahlad Rai in due course. You have totally forgotten that in trade union individual is not important but the policy and vision of the organisation is. If you don't change your attitude, your organisation is also going to suffer. Come to the senses comrade.

 

Good Bye.

13.07.2018 Meeting with GM (Pers.), BSNL Corporate Office:

 

GM (Pers.) called AIBSNLEA for a meeting to discus regarding the promotions of executives. GS, President, AGS (HQ) and AGS (DR) attended the meeting. Jt. GM (Pers) was also present in the meeting.

 

We extended our sincere gratitude and thanks to the Management for issuing promotion orders of 12,000 executives within a months time which has been appreciated by all the executives. And, AIBSNLEA wants continuance of the process of promotions of the executives through CPCs before implementation of the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. GM (Pers) appreciated our concern and mentioned that Management still wants to continue the promotions through CPCs but unanimity in this respect should come from all the corners. He asked the opinion of AIBSNLEA regarding equalization of promotion avenues in all the disciplines. We explained that equalization in promotions in all the cadres should be ensured as far as possible.

 

We demanded that all the eligible JTOs should be promoted to SDE (T) by filling-up of the vacant SDEs posts and either through up-gradation or by diversion of LDCE quota posts to SCF quota.

 

SDE to DE promotions should be issued to reduce stagnation in the cadre of SDE (T) by promoting all the eligible SDEs. GM (Pers) mentioned that even to promote Seniority List No. 8 SDEs about 3500 post up-gradation would be required which will increase the strength of the DE to about 10500 wherein deployment plan is to be prepared. We mentioned that after implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy DE strength will be about 15000 in the year of 2022 and about 22000 in the year 2028. Thus promoting 10000 – 12000 should not be a problem through CPCs.

 

Regarding AO to CAO promotions, we requested to promote all the eligible AOs to the post of CAO by up-gradation of posts. GM (Pers) assured to discuss the matter with Director (HR).

 

For promotions in Civil/Electrical/Arch/TF/PA/PS/CSS cadres, GM (Pers) mentioned that regarding up-grading the posts of EE and equivalent cadres, proposal have been received in Pers. Cell and after discussion with Director (HR) a decision will be taken in this regard.

 

Regarding DE to DGM promotions GM (Pers) mentioned that an MA has been filed in the Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh on the basis of recent Hon'ble Court judgment and DOPT instructions. After vacation of the stay, CPC proceedings will be expedited to fill-up about 700 – 900 DGM posts.

 

Finally, GM (Pers) mentioned that AIBSNLEA concern on promotions will be apprised to the competent authority for further directions.   

13.07.2018 Status of Court cases in the Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi regarding 147 LDCE Quota SDEs seniority:

The matter in respect of K.B. Upasani & Ors Vs. M/o Personnel Public Grievance & Pension and Sanjay Kumar Aggarwal & Ors. Vs.

The OAs were filed by the applicants against their reversion consequent to the implementation of Hon'ble Supreme Court judgment dated 12.12.2017 in the matter of TES Group "B" seniority.

12.07.2018 SC/ST promotion: Bench to consider reservation on Aug 3, 2018:

The SC bench refused to pass any interim order even as Attorny General K K Venugopal contended that confusion was created due to multiple orders and reservation in promotion in various departments, including Railways was stuck. on Wednesday Supreme Court fixed August 3, 2018 as the date for constitution bench to determine if, to reconsider the 2006 M Nagaraj judgement.

10.07.2018 Demonstration by AUAB on 11-07-2018 at Circles and SSAs Head Quarters

As decided in the meeting of All Unions and Associations of BSNL (AUAB) demonstrations in front of the CCA offices at all Circles and at SSAs will be held on 11.07.2018 demanding the implementation of the assurances given by the Hon MOSC to the representatives of the All Unions and Associations of BSNL, in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, on the issues of implementation of 3rd Pay Revision to BSNL employees, implementation of Government of India Rules on payment of Pension Contribution by BSNL, the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL and Pension revision to BSNL Pensioners. 

All the Circle Secretaries / District Secretaries are requested coordinate with the constituent Unions and Associations and participate in the DEMONSTRATION on 11-07-2018 at Circles and SSAs and make it a grand success.

At BSNL Corporate Office demonstration will be held on 12-07-2018.

10.07.2018 Statement of Facts of Director (HR) meeting held on 09.07.2018:

Director (HR) BSNL Board convened a meeting of the General Secretaries of BSNLEU, NFTE, AIBSNLEA and SNEA. But GS/BSNLEU, GS/AIBSNLEA and GS/SNEA could attend the meeting with Director (HR) since GS/NFTE was out of station for attending his Union meetings at Mehboob Nagar. GM (Pers.), GM (SR) and OSD to Director (HR) were present in the meeting.

 

The very purpose of conducting the meeting of four General Secretaries of the recognised Unions/Associations was to discuss the dispute going on among the two major executive Associations which is damaging the environment of BSNL.

 

Director (HR) in the beginning of the meeting mentioned that the Management is trying to do its best for the betterment of all non-executives and executives. Thus every body should work together in unity for the betterment of BSNL and its employees.

 

Comrade GS/BSNLEU initiated the discussions and told Madam the main reasons of SNEA to write a letter against GS/AIBSNLEA is that at the instance of GS/AIBSNLEA, Mr. Khan CHQ President of SNEA has been reverted and transferred from BSNL Corporate Office to UP (W) Circle.

 

In response to this, Director (HR) replied that both the allegations against GS/AIBSNLEA are not correct and Management has not taken any action at the instance of GS/AIBSNLEA. The first point, reversal of Mr. Khan is the outcome of the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgment regarding the 147 LDCE Quota SDEs seniority case. In this respect, GS/SNEA reacted and mentioned that SNEA is not against the reversion but is against the eligibility decided by the BSNL Corporate Office in respect to these 147 LDCE Quota SDEs with reference to SDE RR provisions. Director (HR) immediately replied that BSNL Corporate Office has issued 147 LDCE Quota SDEs reversion orders in accordance to the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgment as understood. However, various court cases have been filed in different Hon'ble CATs & now based on that Management may review its decision, if required.

 

On the second point, Director (HR) mentioned that Mr. Khan, SDE has been transferred by the decision of Director (HR) and I am competent enough to transfer my executives. GS/SNEA reacted that the transfer of Mr. Khan is not on the basis of a policy. Then Director (HR) clarified that Management has decided not to keep all the Union/Association Office Bearers in BSNL Corporate Office. It was understood that Mr. Khan is having a house in Noida. In view of that it will be convenient for him to be posted at Noida. However, in case Mr. Khan has a difficulty in going to UP (West) then his order may be modified to Delhi today itself and accordingly, she directed GM (Pers) to put-up the case for issuance of the modified transfer orders of Mr. Khan.

 

Thereafter, Director (HR) discussed the objections raised by GS/SNEA regarding continuance of Shri Prahlad Rai as GS/AIBSNLEA even after his retirement. GS/SNEA reiterated his stand and told that my Association's stand is very clear that Mr. Prahlad Rai should not be allowed as GS/AIBSNLEA as per the BSNL (REA) Rules-2014. In this respect GS/AIBSNLEA replied that as per the decision of CWC Trivandrum and further decision taken in the CHQ Office Bearers & Circle Secretaries meet held at New Delhi, Shri Prahlad Rai will continue as GS along with other retired CHQ Office Bearers till next AIC which has already been requested to the BSNL Management. In the next CWC meeting of AIBSNLEA being held at Dehradun on 18th and 19th August 2018, the venue and time for the next AIC will be decided.

 

Comrade GS AIBSNLEA further mentioned that Comrade GS/SNEA has forgotten that in his last tenure, his CHQ President Comrade G.L. Jogi who retired on 30.06.2013 continued as CHQ President SNEA till next AIC of SNEA held in September 2015 at Jaipur about one and half years after his retirement that was also in violation of Executive Association SNEA recognition Rules 2004 i.e. only serving executive can become the Office Bearer of an Executive Association. But AIBSNLEA never raised any objection against Comrade Jogi's continuance after his retirement in writing or verbal. In this regard, GS/SNEA mentioned that Mr Jogi continued as CHQ President for one and half year but he did not make any communications. Then GS/AIBSNLEA clarified that normally President is not making any communications.

 

In this regard, GS/BSNLEU mentioned that such things are happening even in non-executive Unions also for example 2nd recognised Union, NFTE could hold its AIC after one year but such point was never raised by BSNLEU or any other Union. Then GS/SNEA reacted with anger to GS/BSNLEU that why they are interfering in this matter. If they do like this, SNEA may break its relations with AUAB. GS/BSNLEU replied that he is sitting here in the meeting on the invitation given by Director (HR) to resolve the dispute amicably and he further  mentioned that this is not the time to fight rather it is the time to safeguard the BSNL and its employees. Important issues like 3rd PRC, Pension Revision, Payment of Pension Contribution on actual and BSNL Tower Subsidiary are the important issues needs settlement through unity. The reply of GS/BSNLEU was appreciated and accepted by Director (HR). She further requested to keep harmony.

 

GS/SNEA immediately reacted and told that GS/AIBSNLEA for the last 15-20 days is updating on his CHQ website regarding promotions which is adversely affecting SNEA. He categorically told that Management should have implemented CPSU Cadre Hierarchy from 01.07.2018 it self to bring parity amongst the executives instead of conducting CPCs and promotion orders. Issuances of 12,000 promotion orders of executives have created disparity amongst the executives. GS/SNEA mentioned that GS/AIBSNLEA has written a letter against GS/SNEA not to allow him as GS/SNEA since he has been served with Charge Sheet in violation of BSNL (REA) Rules 2014.

 

In this regard, GS/AIBSNLEA clarified that he has not written any letter in response to GM (SR) letter which was addressed to CHQ President/AIBSNLEA. CHQ President in his reply has mentioned reference about GS/SNEA for violation of BSNL (REA) Rules -2014 and served as Major Penalty Charge Sheet even after he has been allowed to work as GS/SNEA. Also SNEA on their website spread hatred amongst the executives targeting particular cadres and community to create cadre war.  

 

Director (HR) mentioned that Management is ready to bring parity in all the cadres by promoting executives even by up-gradation of posts. 12,000 promotions of executives has been appreciated by each and every one and Management wants to continue this process to bring parity but it is unfortunate that now Management is being termed as VINDICTIVE since they have promoted 12,000 executives.

 

Director (HR) further mentioned that CPSU Cadre Hierarchy has been got approved by BSNL Management only from the BSNL Board despite of the many reservations. Some shortcomings of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy w.r.t SC/ST Roster are being examined and shortly some modifications will be made and the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy will be implemented since it is the baby of BSNL Management. Management wants to avoid litigations in CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. Director (HR) categorically told that parity in the promotions will be considered in all the cadres as far as possible before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. One side Associations are distributing sweets, felicitating the Management for issuing promotion orders and other side is telling vindictive to the Management. It is most unfortunate.

 

Lastly, Director (HR) clearly mentioned that if Associations continue to condemn the Management against the promotions then Management will not like to promote executives and meeting lasted.
