Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon'ble Minister of State for
Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL -
A historical meeting:
A meeting is held
at the Sanchar Bhawan today the 24.02.2018, between Shri
Manoj Sinha, Hon'ble Minister of State for Communications
and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL (AUAB). Together
with the Minister, Secretary, DoT, Special Secretary, DoT,
Joint Secretary (Admn.), DoT, DDG (Esst), DoT, Shri Anand
Kumar, OSD to the Hon'ble Minister, CMD BSNL and Director
(HR) BSNL were present. From the All Unions and Associations
of BSNL, Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, Com. Chandeswar Singh, GS,
NFTE, Com. K. Sebastin, GS, SNEA, Com. Prahlad Rai, GS,
AIBSNLEA, Com. K. Jayaprakash, GS, FNTO, Com. N.D. Ram, GS,
SEWA BSNL, Com. Ravi Shil Verma, GS, AIGETOA, Com.
Mallikarjuna, President, BSNL MS and Com. S.D. Sharma, GS,
BSNL ATM, participated in the discussions. The
representatives of the AUAB heartily thanked the Hon'ble
Minister for taking out time to meet them. Detailed
discussions took place on the memorandum submitted to the
Hon'ble Minister, the details of which are as follows:-
So far, the DoT has been maintaining that BSNL employees are
not eligible for 3rd Pay Revision. In today's
meeting the Hon'ble Minister agreed that the issue of 3rd
Pay Revision of BSNL employees would be processed and would
be taken for the approval of the DPE and the Cabinet. This
is a great achievement. We have broken the stalemate that
prevailed in the Pay Revision issue. At the same time we
have to be vigilant, till the final approval is given by the
Subsidiary Tower Company.
The AUAB representatives expressed their apprehension that
in the name of formation of the Tower Company, the 66,000
mobile towers of BSNL are being snatched away from BSNL.
They also pointed out that the decision of the Cabinet that,
the Subsidiary Tower Company would remain under the control
of BSNL Management, has been violated, through the
appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of Subsidiary Tower
Company. They further pointed out that even BSNL Management
was not taken in to confidence in the appointment of an IAS
officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, which
clearly shows that the Subsidiary Tower Company would not be
under the control of BSNL Management. The reply given by the
Hon'ble Minister in this regard is not satisfactory. The
AUAB has to find ways and means to ensure the rolling back
of the Subsidiary Tower Company.
the discussions on the issue, GS AIBSNLEA raised the issue
of additional increment on post based promotions under the
executive promotion policy provisions which
has been denounced by DoT vide letter dated 05.07.2017 and
lakhs of rupees recoveries are taking place of BSNL
executives and BSNL pensioners. He instantly submitted
Hon'ble PB CAT judgment copy to Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) wherein
the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 has been quashed. Hon'ble
MOSC (I/C) immediately directed DoT administration to look
into the matter. Now, we can expect that DoT may not
go for appeal against the PBCAT order in this regard after
The representatives of AUAB strongly argued that pension
revision should be done to the BSNL pensioners. It was
pointed out that the BSNL pensioners and the Central
Government pensioners are covered by the same rules. They
argued that when pension revision is settled for the Central
Government pensioners, the same should not be denied to the
BSNL pensioners. The Hon'ble Minister assured that needful
action would be taken to settle this issue.
It was strongly argued that pension contribution in respect
of BSNL employees cannot be calculated on the basis of
maximum of the pay scale, when the same is calculated on the
basis of actual basic pay, in the case of Central Government
employees. It was pointed out that as per the DoP&T order
issued in 2006, pension contribution of the Central
Government employees is being deducted on the basis of
actual pay only. The Hon'ble Minister directed the
Secretary, DoT, that this issue should be settled as per
(5)Allotment of 4G
spectrum to BSNL.
The AUAB representatives pointed out that it will be
extremely difficult for BSNL to compete with the private
operators, without providing 4G service. They strongly
argued that the proposal of the BSNL Management, for the
allotment of 4G spectrum by the Government, should be
accepted. The Hon'ble Minister replied in the positive and
assured that needful action would be taken.
retirement age from 60 to 58.
The AUAB representatives strongly argued that the retirement
age of the BSNL employees should not be reduced from 60 to
58, as a measure for the revival of BSNL. The Hon'ble
Minister told that the government is not having any proposal
to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58.
(7)Left out issues
of the 2nd PRC.
The AUAB representatives pointed out that this issue is
lingering on very long time and needs to be settled. The
Hon'ble Minister stated that this issue would be looked into
by the Secretary, DoT.
At the end of the meeting, the Hon'ble
Minister stated that the representatives of AUAB could meet
him again, as well as the Secretary, DoT, in continuation of
today's meeting. The representatives of AUAB heartily
thanked the Minister for his positive response to most of
After the meeting
with the Hon'ble Minister, a meeting of the AUAB was held in
the FNTO's office. All the General Secretaries expressed
their satisfaction with regards to the progress in the
issues. They also expressed the view that all these have
happened only because of the united struggles and massive
mobilization by the entire Non-Executives and Executives,
for which they deserve appreciation.
BSNL Corporate Office issues orders for cancellation of

to the BSNL serving employees. GM (Admin) mentioned that
extension of medical reimbursement without vouchers is under

Budget Cell of BSNL C.O. for comments thereafter only the
decision will be taken.
Meeting with DDG (Estt), DoT:
GS along with GS / BSNLEU and
GS / SNEA met DDG (Estt), DoT regarding pension revision of
BSNL pensioners. We requested him that DoT should not
link pension revision with the pay revision of BSNL
serving employees which is not justified since the BSNL
pensioners are not related with the affordability of BSNL.
During their service their pension contribution has already
been paid to DoT. We requested him to de-link the pension
revision of BSNL pensioners from the case of pay revision of
BSNL serving employees. DDG (Estt) assured to look into.
Meeting with Secretary
GS along with GS / BSNLEU and
GS / SNEA met Secretary (Telecom), DoT and requested for
considering the BSNL's proposal for implementation of 3rd
PRC recommendation with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL. We
expressed our concern that the BSNL Board recommendations in
this regard are pending in DoT for the last three months but
no steps have been taken so far for its implementation. We
further requested that DoT should relax the "Affordability
Clause" of 3rd PRC or should take relaxation from
Union Cabinet in the interest of BSNL and its employees. We
pleaded that BSNL employees are working with their full
commitment for the growth of BSNL and also timely completing
the various Govt. projects like BHARAT NET, NFS & LWE etc.
Pay revision in BSNL is must
to keep motivated the BSNL employees and in the interest of
the viability of BSNL. Delay in consideration of pay
revision has caused serious frustrations, resentment and
demotivation amongst the BSNL employees. We explained that
most of the BSNL employees were DoT employees only before
their absorption in BSNL and as per Govt. of India Policy,
after formation of the BSNL they exercised their option for
taking absorption in BSNL under the assurances of better
pay, promotion and pension but now the same is being
deprived off on one pretext or another.
Regarding pension revision of
BSNL pensioners, we apprised her that DoT Pension Cell is
linking the pension revision with the pay revision of BSNL
serving employees which is not justified since the BSNL
pensioners are not related with the affordability of BSNL.
During their service, their pension contribution has already
been paid to DoT. The DDG (Estt) every time is explaining
that in case the pension revision is done for BSNL
pensioners without the pay revision of BSNL serving
employees there will be anomalies in the pension. He is
explaining that in case the pension is revised without
considering the pay revision of BSNL serving employees, in
that case BSNL pensioners retired prior to 01.01.2017 will
draw more pension than the BSNL pensioners who retired or
retiring after 01.01.2017. In this regard, we requested
Secretary (Telecom) for her kind intervention for resolving
We also apprised
Secretary (Telecom) regarding no initiation on wage revision
negotiation of non-executives with non-executives Unions on
the pretext of pending revision of pay scales of executives.
Secretary (Telecom), after
giving patient hearing assured an early action in this
regard and mentioned that Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) is also telling
in all the meetings that we will consider the case. We
extended thanks for granting the meeting.

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

intimated that he has already conveyed Director (HR) about
the concerns raised by AIBSNLA. He sought brief of major
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
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
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

come of the court case. CMD assured to look into the matter.
GS and AGS (HQ) met Director
(Estt. ), DOT and discussed regarding:
A. Pension revision of BSNL
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
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.

by Hon'ble PB CAT, ND.
Meeting with Special Secretary
GS and AGS (HQ) met Shri N.
Sivasailam, Special Secretary (Telecom), DoT and discussed
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
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.

to BSNL: We requested
for allocation for 4G spectrum to BSNL for a fair
