At the outset, AIBSNLEA shared our happiness that due to the BSNL Revival Packages and subsequent finest maneuvering of things from CMD BSNL resulted in an unaudited net additional revenue in the tune of hundreds of crores of rupees (@ 750 Crores) to BSNL compared to last FY, even though  4G Mobile Service was not available to BSNL in a big way.  CMD BSNL reciprocates with sincere Thanks.

Invitation of the CMD to the CWC scheduled in New Delhi on 6th and 7th May 2023

Leaders of AIBSNLEA reverentially requested CMD BSNL to make it convenient to attend the Open Session as ‘Chief Guest’ on the occasion of the Central Working Committee of AIBSNLEA CHQ at New Delhi on 6th May, 2023. This will encourage the members of this Association and add more momentum to the well-being of BSNL.

Long-pending promotions from AO to CAO struck at Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh (OA No 1435/2018)

This matter was discussed in detail with CMD BSNL for the issuance of long pending AO to CAO promotion orders by considering any of the alternate dispute resolution methods as well, as this lone unresolved promotion has been pending for more than 4 years due to the inordinate delay in vacating the ‘Status Quo’ from the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh. CMD shared the concern and explained all the sincere efforts CMD BSNL has taken so far. The sincere efforts of CMD BSNL to resolve the matter of AO to CAO promotion is well perceived by all the stakeholders. The inordinate delay in resolving the matter, still pending with the Hon’ble court indefinitely, is a woeful subject.

We requested CMD BSNL to explore the possibility of approaching the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India to get the Status Quo vacated. CMD replied that as we are all aware of it and on the request AIBSNLEA , the learned counsel from the Supreme Court of India is already engaged to CAT Chandigarh for the case. Management is also equally worried about the undue delay in the AO to CAO promotion but the delay is due to the delay in settling the case in the  Hon’ble Court only. During the further course of discussion, CMD BSNL called DIR (HR) over the phone and directed to do the needful at the earliest and to explore all the feasibilities including an early hearing, approach to the higher Courts (High Court/Supreme Court) & vacation of Status Quo for the early resolution of the long pending Court case.  

Pending promotions from JTO to SDE, SDE to AGM, AGM to DGM equivalent in all streams and the DGM (ad-hoc) to DGM (regular).

AIBSNLEA requested CMD BSNL for the CPC for JTO to SDE promotion, including JTO AIL No:3, SDE(T) to AGM (T) promotions to all the eligible SDEs who have already completed their residency periods, so that justice in the promotion will be extended to all the eligible SDEs of List 9 to 13.

There are around 3053 eligible executives in the SDE cadre are waiting for their Gr. ‘A’ promotion after completing their residency period; List – 9 (206), List – 10 (112), List – 11 (584), List - 12 (1769) & List - 13 (382). More than sufficient vacancies for the promotion of these young officers can be arranged by BSNL Management through the method as follows without any financial implication:


Sanctioned / proposed posts

After carrying out the  CPCs for SDE to AGM, JTO to SDE  CPC may also be conducted. The Same CPCs may be carried out in all other streams to promote all the eligible executives. CMD BSNL responded that all the pending CPCs for the available vacancies will be carried out as per the new RRs . Regarding the DGM (adhoc) to DGM (regular) promotion, the CMD explained the efforts being taken by the BSNL management to remove the legal hurdle, and the orders will be issued immediately after getting some relief from the Court.

Implementation of the 3rd PRC for BSNL Employees:

AIBSNLEA has requested immediate implementation of the much-expected and very long pending 3rd PRC for BSNL employees against the backdrop of a reported good increase in the unaudited revenue of around 750 crores to BSNL in the last financial year. The CMD BSNL categorically replied that as per DPE guidelines for the 3rd PRC, BSNL cannot move for the 3rd PRC proposal as the profitability of BSNL is not suit to any of the recommendation brackets of 3rd PRC, but the Management will not oppose and will be most happy to grant the 3rd PRC to BSNL employees if any such proposal will come.

Inter Circle Long Stay transfer of AGMT/SDET for 25/24 Years:

AIBSNLEA requested to consider all the genuine requests of the concerned executives for retention in their parent circle for a period of one year or so during the course of the issuance of inter-circle long-stay transfers. CMD BSNL replied that the same shall be considered with due care.

The meeting of AIBSNLEA CHQ with the CMD of BSNL was very fruitful, and the meeting was completed on a very positive note.

18.04.2023    GS and President  met the Director (Finance) BSNL Board and discussed all the prevailing matters related to Accounts and Finance including the matter of issual of Certificate in compliance of para 26(6) of the Employees Provident Fund Scheme, 1952 for contribution to PF for higher pension.

AIBSNLEA requested Director (Finance) to cause release the Certificate from the Employer (BSNL) to the eligible employees from the concerned DDOs the authorization form, (Certificate in compliance of para 26(6) of the Employees Provident Fund Scheme, 1952 for contribution to PF) so that with the Employer Certificate the eligible officers can submit their options for higher EPF Pension online before the last date of 03.05.2023. All these forms duly signed by DDOs are also to be submitted to respective RPFCs (Regional Provident Fund Commissioner) well in advance. Director (Finance) totally shared the concern of AIBSNLEA and assured that the same is under process and the certificate will be released soon.

AIBSNLEA has been perusing the matter of smooth submission of option for higher pension of BSNL DRs with DIR(HR)/Sr GM(CA) etc in BSNL CO , right from the Hon’ble Supreme Court judgement dated November 4, 2022 has provided one-time opportunity for eligible employees to opt for higher pension from Employees' Pension Scheme (EPS) under the Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) Scheme. The last date to apply for the same was March 3, 2023 and the same was further extended for two months i.e. up to 3.05.2023. AIBSNLEA doing our level best at all levels to ensure the completion of the option submission process smoothly within the stipulated date.

AIBSNLEA shared  the brewing up grievances , to DIR (Finance),  from among the Officers in AO Cadre waiting long for  their long pending promotion orders to CAO grade. The promotion orders are pending due to the OA No 1435/2018: ’Status Quo’ in the AO to CAO Promotion case-2018. AIBSNLEA requested Dir (Finance) to cause to issue the promotion orders from AO to CAO by any mean i.e. ad-hoc mode, if possible or appeal to the Hon’ble Supreme Court for further direction since Hon’ble CAT has given next date of hearing as 07.08.2023 i.e. after a long gap of four months. This will certainly pave way to release promotion orders from AO to CAO and further from JAO to AO cadres too. Director (Finance) assured to explore all the possibilities for the same by discussing the genuine matter with Director (HR), GM (Pers) & Legal team.

On the mass transfer of Accounts officers from CHTD to Karnataka, AIBSNLEA submitted the ill feeling communicated by the officers under transfer from CHTD that no options have been called upon for their choice Circles as well as not adopted the longest stay. These officers have been struck off through ERP from parent Circle very speedily compared to the transfer orders released very prior to this transfer order i.e. orders issued in Jan., 2023 have not yet been implemented. Director (Finance) mentioned that the transfers from CHTD to Karnataka were done due to the acute shortage of Accounts personnel in Karnataka Circle. As per restructuring of BSNL man power,  CHTD  has  excess officers in Finance Stream and hence the practicality of extending options for choice circles to the officers in CHTD was not there . Director (Finance) added that the transfer orders are issued to the very nearest circle. AIBSNLEA requested to consider the individual genuine requests , if any , for retention in CHTD or re-allotment on the merit of request . Director (Finance) assured to look into the matter .
