report on the ITS Absorption Case in Hon'ble PB CAT New
This is to
inform you that the captioned matter was listed today
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
When the matter was called out I sought a passover on behalf
of Mr. Rao. However, the Bench was not inclined to passover
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.
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.

completion of the Circle Secretary reports, Com. President
requested Com. GS to Summed up.
Summed up with the reply of the queries raised by all 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.
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.
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.
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.
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
to take up the matter of Hungama Service with Management. GS

14.12.2017 in Civil Appeal No(s). 4389 of 2010 wherein
demotion of thousands of the executives is contemplated by
the version of Pers. 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.

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
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.

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.

with Director (HR), BSNL Board, New Delhi:
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
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
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
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.

Maharashtra Circle by the Pers. Cell. GM (SR) informed that
he is going to issue a reminder in this regard shortly.

President, met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding
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

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.

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

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.
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.
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.
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.
Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) gave assurance in the meeting held on

competition to Reliance JIO, who is providing services based
on predatory pricing. Shri M.B. Rajesh, MP, extended his
thanks to the Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) for granting the meeting and

We extended our sincere gratitude and thanks to Hon'ble MoSC
(I/C) for granting the meeting and also extended thanks to
Shri M.B. Rajesh, MP, for arranging the meeting.
<<<<Click here for
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
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
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
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:
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.
