Com. Amit Gupta, Sr. Veteran Leader and the AGS AIRBSNLWEA   in his speech mentioned that retired officer never get any chance to address the Board level officers and thanked the AP circle for giving an opportunity to address the gathering.  He demanded 78.2% IDA fixation to the pensioners' for the executives who have been retired prior to 10.6.2013.  If it is paid atleast for one month prior to the retirement without any arrears, there will be substantial difference in the pension.  He also mentioned that the medical facilities for the retired officers are very poor.  The bills of pensioners for outside treatment are pending for years together.  He thanked GS AIBSNLEA for taking up and pursuing the demand of the pensioners for 78.2% IDA fixation and giving a change to address the grievances in the forum.  

Com. Kaushik, GS TEAM, MTNL, Delhi in his speech mentioned that the people joining the Govt. service for the social security and employment security.  He has mentioned that there is lack of HR management in the BSNL.  Earlier days, the then Govt. were mentioning that the JTOs are the back bone of the organisation.  Both the BSNL and MTNL are in loss just because of the wrong policies of the Govt. for which the employees are not responsible.  It is for the BSNL management to appraise the case to the Govt.  When there is a clear cut direction that 30% benefit has to be granted the reason for not implementing the same is not known.  The option in BSNL and MTNL has been given by the employees out of compulsion.  The children of the many of the senior have completed engineering and working in private sector and changing the job frequently without any loyalty to the company.  Whereas, these young graduate engineers are having loyalty for which they are being punished by the BSNL management.  There should not be any pay difference in the officers between BSNL and MTNL.  The pay scale drawing by the MTNL should be immediately paid by the BSNL.  He requested to the officers of the board level management to take a decision to grant E2 scale to the JTO/JAO and equivalent officers.  He has also mentioned that many of the young officers are leaving the BSNL after serving for 3-4 years and taking training with the expenses of the BSNL due to the wrong HR policies of the BSNL. With the change of time personal management has gone and Human resources management is in force.  The work force is not the liability of the management it is the responsibility and asset of the management. He demanded that there should be no disparity between MTNL and BSNL, immediate implementation of 30% benefit to the youngsters and within 20 years the executives entered in E2 should reach to E11scale.

Shri S S Aggarwal, GM (Personal) BSNL CO on behalf of the HR heads of the BSNL management wished best wishes for the joint open session.  He mentioned that there was a head of circle conference in the Delhi during last two days and all the heads of Circles are putting their best efforts to revive the BSNL.  He mentioned that MoC in the heads of the circle conference has communicated that new Govt. wants the BSNL to perform its best.  It is seen that all the board of Directors are working hard for the better of the BSNL and putting their maximum efforts.  It was because of these Directors that these many DE posts could get filled by diversion from the DR quota.  The management of BSNL is working for the benefit of its employees and public.  He agreed that the workforce is the assets of the BSNL.  He mentioned that almost all the senior officers are in the verge of retirement and the young officers are only going to run the BSNL in the future.  He requested to have faith in the BSNL management, he mentioned that BSNL management is with its workforce.  He mentioned that in order to balance out the shortages, there are some transfers in the recent DE regular order which is part of the promotion.  He informed that the syllabus of the JTO LICE has been simplified. He mentioned the Com. Prahlad Rai is a matured leader taking care of all the executives.

Shri Kalyan Sagar, CGM NATFM, Hyderabad conveyed all the best on behalf of the E.D. (Finance) who could not attend the function.  He mentioned that we have assets and liabilities.  The workforce is Human capital.  There are as many as opportunities as much of the employees.  The brand name of BSNL should be converted into brand equity with joint efforts.  He demanded the BSNL top management to give hope to its employees.  As regards the pay fixation of JAO 2010 batch  will be taken care.   He mentioned that Delloittee consultant has not contacted any of the CGMs before finalizing their report and demanded the BSNL top management to take care of these matters.  He mentioned that it is painful to make such report without consulting any of the CGMs.  NATFM will support for any cause to strengthen the BSNL management.  He also wished best wishes to the CWC.

Shri V Srinivasan, CGM AP Telecom Circle  mentioned that he has attended the meeting of the MoC, wherein MoC has informed that Govt. has made many programmes to improve the telecom services in the country which needs step by step progress.  MoC also mentioned in the HoCC that BSNL have been losing customers as well as financially.  The customer perception about BSNL is not positive.  Blaming each other is the human weakness.  He has mentioned about the revenue collection and net loss of BSNL.  He also mentioned that 78.2% IDA pay has resulting in 110 crore less revenue for the last year in the AP Circle.   He mentioned about the status of the ITI and mentioned that when there is no money in the company no association / unions will exist.  He also mentioned that it is our responsibility to prosper the BSNL instead of talking about individual prosperity. In the organization for doing work everybody want approval from the boss, but at the same time for taking salary from the bank, they do not want any permission from boss. When we get the salary at the end of the month, it is our personal responsibility to discharge my duty without any direction from boss. The destiny of BSNL is in our thoughts words and actions and we have to see that we create a good destine for the BSNL. Only when we are ready to take temporary pain then only you can get long term gain. He has also mentioned that he has a good co-ordinal relation with the AIBSNLEA team of AP.

Shri Anupam Srivastava, Director (CM/Finance), BSNL C.O mentioned that the employees and the officers are the actual assets of the BSNL.  13000 crore is being paid towards the salary per annum to these employees.  He mentioned that he is happy to be here in the joint open session of the AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA.  He mentioned that 'H' in the word Hyderabad stands for Honesty and he has started his career in ECIL, Hyderabad.

He mentioned that during his first interaction with the MoC, MoC has mentioned that Govt. has done lot of injustice to the BSNL and now want to improve it and all the Directors should work hard failing which they will not be spared.  He mentioned that if we approach with commitment, success cannot run away from us.  He also mentioned that united respective efficiency can lead us to the destination and get success.

He mentioned that AIBSNLEA maintains the website efficiently with entirely details which many of the senior officers visiting to get the information.  He also mentioned that there is good transparency in the AIBSNLEA, wherein everybody is allowed to express their views.  We have allowed other operators to compete with us freely instead we should have followed the policy of British Telecom who is the operator of the telecom operators, not sharing of copper cable with the private completers were not right, thirdly not sharing the tower timely.

He also mentioned that now we are growing with negative revenue in the Mobile business and need commitment from the CGMs and his team to install the towers in time to start earning the revenues.

Mobile Data is the future growth of the BSNL and the voice business has gone and the same is taken over by data.  The key business is in the Data and the landline asset should be utilized to strengthen the data network.  He mentioned that together we can achieve a better future for the BSNL.

12.08.2014:Status of ITS Group A Officers Court Case against deployment: The contempt case on ITS issue in Hon'ble High Court of Delhi was listed for hearing on dated 19.03.2014 as CASE No. 227/2013 in  Court No. 7 before Hon'ble Justice S.K. Misra at the High Court of Delhi at New Delhi. Mr. Rajshekhar Rao appeared on behalf of the Petitioners. Mr. Sikri appeared on behalf of BSNL and Mr. Vaibhav Kalra appeared on behalf of DOT. The case is posted for hearing on 14.10.2014. AIBSNLEA is party in this case alongwith BSNLEU and SNEA.

The writ petition filed by AIBSNLEA, BSNLEU and SNEA came for hearing on 12.08.2014, the Hon'ble Central Administrative Tribunal, Principal Bench at New Delhi. However, as Court No. 1 was not sitting on 18.04.2013, the matter was heard in Court No.2 before the bench comprising of Hon'ble Mr. George Paracken and Hon'ble Mr. Sudhir Kumar.

Mr. Rajshekhar Rao appeared on behalf of the Applicants. Counsel for DOT entered appearance. However nobody appeared for B.S.N.L.

After hearing the submissions put forward by Mr. Rao, the Hon'ble Tribunal was pleased to admit the matter and therefore issued notice to the Respondents. Mr. Rao's submissions were two fold, firstly the contumacious disregard of the Order of the Hon'ble High Court in W.P. 22515/2005 and the consistent effort of the Respondents to issue the Orders which virtually supersede a judicial decision which in itself was illegal. Secondly, it was submitted that the officers who had not exercised the option at the material time were now being deployed to BSNL which will gravely prejudice the promotional benefits of the Applicants. Notice has been issued on the prayer made for stay of the Impugned Orders and the Respondents have been directed to file a Reply as regards the same. The captioned matter has been notified for hearing on17.09.2014.

11.08.2014: GS, OS (North) alongwith, VP AIGETOA Shri Mantosh Kumar and CWC Member AIGETOA Shri Shubhendu Sharma met GM (SR), Sh. Neeraj Verma. Meeting lasted more than an hour and various issues were discussed at length:

(i) Membership verification: It was insisted from the association side to conduct an unbiased election for the executive association. As this is an organisation and voters are related with each other in many counts thus such influence may have rippling effect against the spirit and motto of referendum. We pleaded that the secrecy and transparency should be remain prime most factors in the ensuing referendum process. GM (SR) assured to look into the matter.

(ii) Superannuation benefits to BSNL recruited Executives: Association side has reiterated that 30% superannuation benefits must be extended to all direct recruits of BSNL for their social security. It was conveyed to GM (SR) that these benefits are for direct recruits only and he insisted for some documentary support in this regard to further strengthen the case. We pleaded that the case is very genuine in nature and the time has came that the case should be resolve in true spirit. GM (SR) assured to look into the matter and advised to have discussions with GM (Estt.) and GM (CA) BSNL CO on this issue.

(iii) Salary refund in various circles: It was suggested to initiate affirmative move like salary refund during agitation period to induce synergy among the workforce. Association has pointed out that salary cut process was not implemented in uniformity leading to huge financial loss to few persons, refunding of salary may prove a confidence building measure. GM (SR) assured to look into the matter.

(iv) Implementation of Standard pay scale i.e. E-2, E-3: As DPE has rejected the non standard E1A, E2A pay scale and the same has been endorsed by DoT to BSNL. BSNL management has left with no other options rather implementing E2, and E3 for JTOs and SDEs. GM (SR) was convinced but mentioned that Government should consider payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of highest of the pay scale and suggested to take up the issue with Establishment cell.

(v) Inter circle transfer (Rule- 8) cases: Association side has emphasized to settle the long pending Rule- 8 cases. Lighting up the issue association pointed out that out of 34000 sanctioned strength of JTOs only around 14000 is the current working strength, which leads about 62% shortage of JTOs at national level. It is essential to discover some ways for proper induction of manpower rather than harassing executives who are in need. Shortage can not be the region to turn down a genuine request as lesser induction may be a policy decision to reduce operating expenses in a particular time frame. GM (SR) appreciated our concern and mentioned that new JTO RR 2014 and new TTA RR 2014 may sort out the problem.

(vi) Payment of the Honorarium to the Trainers at SSA level:  We demanded to issue the orders to the field units for the release of the honorarium to the identified trainers at SSA Level for implementing the HOCC agenda skill set improvement training at SSA level. GM (SR) assured to look into the matter.
