26.02.2013: Special General Body Meeting of Trivandrum SSA and Circle Office Branch held on 22.2.2013 at Trivandrum in the presence of Com.P.Venugopal, All India President: A combined meeting of the GB of Circle Office branch Trivandrum and Trivandrum SSA branch was held at Trivandrum on 22.02.2013 in the presence of Com. P.Venugopal, CHQ President, who was on tour to Trivandrum then. All available Circle office-bearers of AIBSNLEA including the Circle Secretary attended the meeting which was chaired by Com. M. Shyamkumar, the Circle President. A good number of officiating JTOs, who are members of AIBSNLEA from various parts of the circle attended and participated in deliberations.

All India President Com. P. Venugopal was the guest of honour. The main agenda of the Special Meeting was to analyze the most burning issue which remains unresolved for so many years ie. the regularization of Offtg. JTOs. It was to mainly focus on this issue and to review its present status and further course of action to be suggested at CHQ level for its proper resolution. The hall was jam packed with members who came well in time to hear from the CHQ President on various important issues.

The meeting started with silent prayer at 5.30 PM followed by welcome address by Trivandrum Branch Secretary Com.I.Minimole. She wholeheartedly welcomed the guest of honor Com.P. Venugopal for the willingness extended by him to attend the meeting in spite of his very busy official schedules at Trivandrum. Also, expressed very warm welcome to Com.T.K. Managalanandan, Circle Secretary, for joining the meeting after having traveled all along from Ernakulum to headquarters exclusively to attend the Special General Body. After extending a very warm welcome to all the participants, emphasized the importance of the meeting and requested all to have a very focused discussion on the offtg. JTOs issues and to come up with concrete solutions to submit before CHQ for resolving the matter.

Com.M.Shyam Kumar, Circle President, in his Presidential Address explained in detail, the gravity of the issue and expressed concern on the issue getting prolonged without any signs of timely resolution. The affected executives are showing signs of frustration which has become a matter of serious concern. As many of the Circles have already initiated steps for the conduct of LICE for JTOs as per the latest guidelines issued from Corporate office it is high time to take up the issue again with the administration seeking favorable remedial measures without any further delay. He also advised the affected members to co-operate, be patient enough and appreciate the earnest efforts taken by the association so far for getting the issue highlighted at appropriate levels and its continuing efforts to permanently resolve the issue in a most logical way.

Com.T.K. Managalanandan, Circle Secretary in his very detailed address touched and highlighted the various aspects of the issue, its root cause, present status and suggested the future steps to be initiated for its permanent settlement. He criticized the indifferent attitude shown by administration in this burning issue as they are not at all interested to solve the problem instead always tries to prolong and drag it on illogical grounds. He requested all to co-operate to frame out a draft suggestion to CHQ to present before CMD and BSNL Board for immediate intervention and resolution of the issue. We have already communicated on several occasions regarding the collusions prevailing in this matter which unnecessarily create an artificial stalemate. Still it continues which has to be culminated and not at all permitted to prolong further indefinitely. CHQ should cause suitable remedial measures in this regard. Thereafter the affected executives from the Offtg. JTOs fold spoke on the occasion and expressed their serious anguish on the issue as the same decides their existence in the department and their future carrier prospects as well. They have immense faith in our organization and they do earnestly believe that AIBSNLEA will be the only association which is capable of solving the issue in the most favorable and judicious way. Having spent a very long period in uncertainty on their career prospects it is very high time for its final resolution, they complained. Also stated that their present state is similar to that of a slip between the cup and the lip and hence CHQ should initiate all out efforts to get the matter resolved without any further delay.

Com.P. Venugopal, All India President had delivered an inspirational and detailed speech in which he narrated the entire activities being undertaken at CHQ level. At the outset he expressed his hearty congratulations to Trivandrum Members for arranging the Special General Body within a very short notice and bringing maximum members to the meeting and making it a very grand success. He discussed in detail on the viability issues, ITS repatriation status, settlement of 78.2 IDA fixation, HR issues etc. He expressed concern on the liquidity crunch of BSNL in the recent days especially during this month where there was a real crisis in allotment of funds even for the payment of GPF to employees. There is no other go for the management but to raise funds through loans for developmental activities though our day to day expenses are within our revenue collections. For the survival of BSNL he advised all to contribute maximum for revenue augmentation and should always be minimal in incurring expenses. Many of our cadre progressions are not being materialized due to the non-cooperative approach of the ITS. The non-settlement of Offtg. JTO's issue is also a similar case which is being dragged by them in the name of legal grounds without understanding or purposefully evading the root cause of the issue. However, CHQ is well aware of the issue and all out efforts will be continued for its favorable settlement within the possible minimum period duly taking up with CMD through personal appearances. The deliberations of this meeting will be given due importance and the matter will be presented before the CMD and will be explained well by the CHQ delegation soon after his return to office. He told that he had fully conceived the gravity of the issue and now it is up to CHQ to get the matter resolved for which he has given his whole hearted support and will take all possible steps for its early settlement.

The CHQ President agreed that the workable suggestion will be raised before the CMD as our strong demand immediately. The meeting came to an end at 8.15 PM with formal vote of thanks proposed by Com. K.Mohan Kumar, CWC Member.

25.02.2013: Status of SDE to DE(Adhoc) Promotion Court Case at Hon'ble CAT Chennai: There are two OAs now. The first OA dealt with quashing of restoration of seniority to 147 officers under 1966 which was already restored by the Corporate Office and communicated to the Circles. But after this OA filed, staus quo was given by the Hon'ble CAT/Chennai until the reply would be given by the Department. Now the department filed the reply, it is reported. The department filed writ in the Hon'ble High Court/ Chennai to uphold the decision taken by the Corporate Office previously. For the writ, it is admitted but ordered that staus quo will be continued. It will be heard within two weeks.

For the second OA filed by a group of people deals with stopping of preparatory works for the DPC for SDE to DE. They object the list of seniority released by the administration in the month of September, 2012 just for correction, as competitive hands were enmasse shown as seniors. To this OA, stay was given by the Hon'ble CAT, Chennai. Today it came for hearing. We pleaded that this case also related with seniority and reply was given to Hon'ble CAT, Chennai against OA I. But no specific order was submitted to this effect. So Hon'ble CAT Chennai postponed the case to 26.03.2013. If any advancement in hearing is needed as requested by the Department, separate application may be submitted with the order issued, if any, to OA I and it will be considered and date of advanced hearing will be announced afterwards.

19.02.2013:Status of ITS Officers absorption issue: GS, AGS(HQ) met concern DoT officers and discussed regarding ITS Officers absorption issue. It is understood that the Cabinet Note sent by DoT has been approved by Cabinet in its meeting held on 13.02.2013. The silent feature of the Cabinet Note are reliably learnt as under :

(a) The absorption process of Group-'A' Officers in BSNL/ MTNL will end henceforth.

(b) The Group-'A' & 'B' level Officers absorbed in BSNL/MTNL, their seniority is de-linked with the Group-'A' officers on deemed  deputation to BSNL/MTNL.

(c) The Group-'A' & 'B' level executives of BSNL/MTNL will get promotion against  STS/JAG/SAG/HAG level posts on priority.  The 941 ITS Officers in BSNL and 83 ITS Officers in MTNL will be posted against remaining vacant JAG/SAG/HAG level posts.

(d) The deemed deputation of 941 ITS Officers in BSNL and 83 ITS Officers in MTNL is allowed to continue for the next 10 years. About 40 ITS Officers from lower grade (i.e. JAG) will be relieved every year progressively. (Similarly 10-15 ITS officers in SAG/HAG grade will retire every year). In this manner, in the next 10 years all the ITS Officers on deemed deputation in BSNL/MTNL will be repatriated to DoT.

(e) The ITS Officers cadre will be restructured in DoT shortly and presently 463 ITS officers will be accommodated in DoT and against these 463 posts of JAG/SAG/HAG, the ITS officers will get their promotion till the time cadre is restructured in DoT.

(f)  During the period of 10 years, BSNL/MTNL Managements have to ensure to create their own top level Management so that 40 ITS Officers are relieved progressively on every year basis.

It seems that Hon'ble Court may not allow to continue deemed deputation in view of the earlier Govt. of India's policy, Court decision and discrimination towards absorbed employees. However, Association will continue to fight organisanally and legally against discrimination.

Unite for struggle against the BSNL Management's indifferent & vindictive attitude

The Trade Union action call given by United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations comprising AIBSNLEA, SNEA(I) and AIGETOA to protest against the arbitrary notification of Special Recruitment Rules of Sr. DGM, non- finalization of E2-E3 standard IDA pay scales & CPSUs Cadre hierarchy in BSNL in the month of Feb'2012 was deferred on the written assurance of BSNL Management that a Committee will examine the demands and will submit its report within a period of six months. Accordingly a Committee headed by PGM(SR) was constituted along with the representatives of executives' Associations. The said Committee had three meetings to discuss the above demands i.e.  withdrawal of Special Recruitment Rules of Sr. DGM, non- finalization of E2-E3 standard IDA pay scales & CPSUs Cadre hierarchy in BSNL and as suggested  by the official side officers to the representatives of executives Associations,  they  submitted a draft proposal on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy for consideration. But the officers side members instead of considering the proposal started continuing to mention that CPSU Cadre hierarchy  in BSNL is not possible due to Govt. legacy and dispute continues. Executives Associations categorically told that at the time of formation of BSNL the executives were assured "non-post based time bound promotions upto SG JAG level grade and post based promotions after SAG and above levels  only". But BSNL Management has implemented EPP for time bound and post based promotions basis.  The assured policy never said that there would be financial upgradation at all levels, recruitment of DGMs and Management Trainees were also never the part of the promotion policy that was offered. The settled promotion policy offered to the Group-'B' level executives in BSNL at the time of their absorption in BSNL has been twisted and diluted - it is gross injustice & betrayal. The change of designation on each financial upgradation is not given to the executives whereas the deputationist ITS officers are being given higher designations viz Sr. GM even without getting the Sr. GM scale in BSNL.

As on today, JTOs promoted as SDE in 1994 are waiting for their second promotion as DE/AGM even after 18 years. The number of SDEs completed the minimum qualifying service of 7 years and waiting for DE/AGM promotion are more than 10,000. The situation is worse in the case of DGM cadre due to various reasons. The impact of further squeezing the already limited promotional avenues can have serious repercussions on the growth of company since such a step will fully demoralize already highly demoralized executives.

Instead of doing proper work study and creating post based on workload, the present move of the BSNL Management to reduce the posts by 30% just because CGM/GM level posts are reducing is not at all justifiable. Already field units are suffering due to shortage of Executives at key positions especially in landline sector, the level of supervision and quality of service is deteriorating further day by day. Further, this is the minimum promotional avenues and motivation available to the Executives.

But the ITS dominated BSNL Management in BSNL is not able to appreciate the genuine concern of the absorbed executives and prefer to continue put hurdles in their career prospects by way of not filling up vacant Group-'B', STS & JAG level posts and by lateral induction at the level of JAG and STS level. In this manner the Management has prefer to force its executives to once again choose the path of confrontation and non-cooperation. The Management, which is controlled by deputationist, has been completely exposed through its actions.

United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations has already expressed its serious resentment against the indifferent and vindictive attitude of the BSNL Management, we shall now wait for the outcome of the immediate initiative of the Management to implement the CPSU Cadre hierarchy in terms of non-post based time bound promotions upto the JAG Selection grade, stopping of lateral induction at STS and JAG level and implementation of E-2, E-3 standard IDA pay scales. In case the Management fails or continues to play with us, we shall get ready to give them a befitting reply.

All the CHQ Office Bearers, Circle/Branch Secretaries are requested to submit their opinion on this issue immediately to CHQ for further submission.

13.02.2013:BSNL Board remuneration committee meeting: It is understood that remuneration Committee of BSNL Board comprising Director (HR), Director (Fin), two independent BSNL Board Directors and one Govt. nominee Director in BSNL Board is continuously holding meetings in BSNL Corporate Office. Despite the protest of United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations, BSNL Management is considering to reduce the number of DGM/DE equivalent posts in BSNL instead of increasing the no. of posts against several new services are launched. Let us, get ready to protest against such ulterior motives of the BSNL Management shortly.

13.02.2013: GS, FS and GS SNEA(I) met concern offciers in DoT and discussed about absorption issue. It is understood that Cabinet Note on absorption of Group-'A' ITS Officers in BSNL/MTNL submitted to Union Cabinet by DOT on 23.01.2013 & Supplementary Note on 08.02.2013  is coming for consideration in Union Cabinet Meeting today evening at 17.30 Hrs.

13.02.2013: CPC from SDE(E) to EE(E): GS discussed with PGM(EW)  regarding filling up of vacant EEs(E) posts. PGM(EW) mentioned that the provisional seniority list of SDEs(E) has been circulated for comments up to 21.02.2013. Also the information regarding higher qualification/degree acquired while in service has been called to finalize the seniority list. After receiving the comments and required information the final seniority list will be prepared and immediately CPC will be initiated to fill up about 40 EEs(E) vacant posts.

13.02.2013:Revision of MTRRs -2009: AIBSNLEA consistent effort yielded results in getting proposal for revision of MTRRs -2009. AIBSNLEA against the provisions of age and qualification in the MTRR-2009 for internal candidates immediately challenged in the Hon'ble CAT Ernakuam and got the direction to allow existing executives provisionally as internal candidates in MT examination. Against this BSNL Management made an appeal in the Hon'ble Kerala High Court and the appeal was dismissed. Similarly, some more cases were filed in different courts through out the country; hence BSNL Management filed case in the PB CAT New Delhi to get transferred all the cases in PB CAT, New Delhi. Hon'ble PB CAT, New Delhi allowed transferring the cases and AIBSNLEA further impleaded in the case at PB CAT, New Delhi.

Recently OA no. 777/2010 between BSNL V/s AIBSNLEA in Hon'ble PB CAT, New Delhi delivered final judgement wherein Hon'ble PB CAT directed that the ongoing MT recruitment process should be completed as per the interim direction given by the Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam (i.e.) without age and qualification restriction as per the prayer filed by AIBSNLEA.

This is a great victory for the stand taken by this Association, that the restriction of age and qualification in MT RR is discriminatory and the same is now vindicated by this judgement.

Consequent upon BSNL Management has prepared a revised draft on MTRR -2009 allowing B.Sc. Ist Class and 50 years age for internal candidates and has asked the opinion and views of the Association. Presently the issues raised by AIBSNLEA have been addressed upto some extent, but still on some points our views are to be submitted on 18.2.2013 to the BSNL Management. Now, our considered opinion is that since the CPSU Cadre hierarchy for non- post based promotions upto JAG selection grade is under discussion in Committee, the MTRRs has no relevance. However, all the CHQ Office Bearers, Circle/Branch Secretaries are requested to submit their opinion on this issue immediately to CHQ for further submission.  <<<Click here for Proposed revisions in the RRs of MT-2009>>>
