a)  Immediate relieving of JTOs /TTAOs working on deputation basis: We expressed our serious concern against such arbitrary order in the mid academic session of relieving of JTOs/TTAs working on deputation basis and directing circles not to recommend/forward the applications for further extension/deputation. GM (Estt) mentioned that in some Circles, some JTOs/TTAs are working on deputation without any further extension from BSNL CO and parent Circles are pressing hard for their relieving. Hence, the order was issued for relieving. However, he assured that applications for extension of deputation or fresh deputation will be considered.

We have strongly protested for not considering request transfer of JTOs of Karnataka, Assam, NE-I. NE-II, WB Circles under Rule-8. GM(Estt) assured to speak to concerned CGMs immediately to consider request transfers of JTOs. GM(Estt) mentioned that Policy has been reiterated, no new decision taken.

Modification/retention of DEs on regular Promotion: We requested to-

i)  Fill up to 90% of the vacancies instead of 70% in the KTK,TN, CHTD, MH and UP(East) to avoid sudden vacuum and maintenance problems in the Circles.

CMD mentioned that all the officers on promotion distributed on pro rata basis in the entire deficit Circles. It is not possible to modify all the posting order on the pretext of two and half years of service. But some genuine case will be considered after 29/09/2014.

 

CMD assured to hold review meeting to discuss HR issues after 25/09/2014.

 

We express our serious concern about remarks of Secretary, Telecom towards services of BSNL in J& K circle. We pleaded that BSNL staff without getting Food for 2-3 days restored the services and still trying to provide service in difficult situation. Govt. should appreciate the efforts made by BSNL staff restoring Telecom services in J&K Circle.

22.09.2014: GS, Com H Y Andeli CS, Karnataka Circle and Com Rama Rao CWC member AP, met GM (SR) and discussed regarding-

22.09.2014:   GS, and Com H Y Andeli CS, Karnataka Circle met GM (Pers.) and discussed regarding

a) Modification/retention of DEs on regular Promotion: In the DET (Regular) promotion order issued on 20/08/2014, All the SDEs promoted as DETs on regular basis of all Circles except KTK, TN, CHTD, MH and UP(East) have been retained in the same Circle. About 300 SDEs of KTK, TN, CHTD, MH and UP(East) after serving 32 to 34 years of service and left with just 3 to 4 years of service have been posted to farthest Circles of India even though 30% vacancies are still available in these Circles. It is noticed that more than 100 SDEs have declined their promotion due to health, age and family problem etc in the last 3 DPCs. Purpose of issuing promotion order is thus defeated.  It is requested to fill up all the vacant posts of DETs and modify the remaining SDEs promotion and posting order to adjacent Circles on humanitarian and sympathetic ground. 140 DEs of KTK have been posted to the farthest Circles of 2500 Km and above. At present 50 vacancies are available. Around 70 DEs vacancies are going to arise if the DGM promotion order being issued in this month. Totally 120 DETs posts are falling vacant. In addition to above, Sanctioning of 67 posts of DETs is awaited from BSNL CO. Circle is going to face difficulty in maintaining systems. Some SSAs are not having DETs. We have requested to retain at least 50 DETs out of 140 out of the Circle. Fill up posts of DETs up to 90 % instead of 70%. So that Circles can sustain revenue & work pressure. GM(Pers) tried to justify the posting order as per the requirement of the circle and mention that SDE to DET promotion order has been issued against vacant posts in all the circles and on pro rata basis in all the circles. However he mentioned that some genuine cases may be considered after 29/09/2014. We further requested to consider genuine cases before 29/09/2014 to get the benefit of Time bound promotion under EPP.

b)  SDEs after serving 32 to 34 years of service and having less than 2 years & 7 months of service to retire are posted to other Circles on DE Regular promotion. After completion of 7 months of his service as DET Regular in other Circle, his left out service will remain less than 2 years. Then, in that case as per the transfer policy, the DET will apply for transfer to his parent Circle. BSNL has to spend heavy transfer grant for serving only 7 - 8 months.  We have requested to retain SDEs on their promotion as DET (Regular) who is having less than 3 years of service as on 20/08/2014 in the same Circle instead of 31/03/2014. GM(Pers)  mentioned that all the request transfers irrespective of service left over will be consider after serving two years of service.

Shri G.Ravi, PGM (Finance), TN Circle mentioned that Cash Flow management is very critical in BSNL. But we have to face the stiff competitions and challenges from the Private Operators. We have to be united and work together and compete like Kerala Circle to earn the Profit. Revenue increase in TN Circle up to Aug’2014 comparing to the previous year is 2% only. We have to strive hard to improve our Revenue. Each one of us is a Leader. With mutual Co-operation we can do better. We should be pragmatic, realistic, prudent and balanced and we have to follow the rules strictly. He also requested the Executives of TN Circle to work hard to increase the Cash flow and immediate action has to be taken to collect the outstanding revenue due to the BSNL.

Shri Shri S.P.Singh Nimrana, PCE(E) TN Circle mentioned that Looking on arrangement orders has been issued as per the request of the AIBSNLEA and he appreciated that AIBSNLEA leaders are always coming with solutions to the problems.  He also pointed out that it is a matter of great concern that the Deloittee Committee recommended the scrapping of Electrical/Civil/Architectural wings. He also mentioned that it is painful to make such report without consulting any of the CGMs .He also mentioned that Energy bill is reduced by 13.5 Cr comparing to last year. He requested that we have to reduce our Expenditure and raise our revenue. Marketing actions to be increased and we have to raise the sales.

Smt.S.E.Rajam, GM, Madurai mentioned that Hope should come in the darkness. Hope with efforts will bring BSNL a profit making PSU. She recollected the mind setting of Employees at the time Corporatization during 2000 whether BSNL will survive and earn profit.  Yes, it will survive for another 10 years i.e up to the date of my Retirement. Because of the hopes and efforts taken by our Executives and Non Executives BSNL earned Profit up to 31.3.2009. BSNL is continuously making losses for the last five consecutive years.Hence we are deliberating now about the “New Challenges and Hopes for Revival of BSNL as profit making PSU”. Definitely we will strive hard with hope and make the BSNL as Profit making PSU.

Com.V.K.Paramasivam, CHQ Advisor mentioned that the “Customer Delight Month” has been organized by AIBSNLEA. Then only we came to know the delay in procurement OF Cables, Joint Kits, Modems, Clip instruments and sim cards which drastically affected the Growth of BSNL. We are working for the social commitment of India and 28000 BSNL Rural Telephone Exchanges are working in India. During “Thane Puyal” our Towers were only working in Cuddalore and Puducherry. Recent J&K Flood also our BSNL network is only working for the affected people. .  To attain our goal AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA forged an alliance and the victory of this alliance can not only save BSNL but also pave the way for settlement of our vital HR issues such as settlement of E2 and E3 pay scales for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO cadres and their equivalents respectively for which each one of us should work hard in mobilizing the Executives in support of our Alliance in the referendum for electing the majority Executive Associations. 

Com.S.R.Patil,OS(South) CHQ mentioned that we are humble to our Customers. 24x7 services has to be given to the IT people by the BSNL. But we are not giving services to them and lost the revenue from BB Segment. Due to good will only customers are with BSNL. We have to provide best customer service to them.

Com Lakshmanan, Vice President, AIGETOA, CHQ mentioned that the requirement of the customers is changing day by day. Now 4G,3G,WIFI, Free chat, Push message are familiarized with the common people and young generation and no one  is waiting  for basic  telephone.They want Data only. They will automatically come to Global.We have to see the other Private Operator and we have to think about the Data Services. In Hyderabad, if you want WIFi, you have to call a Private Operator Mobile No. immediately WIFI is connected. In BSNL also Technocrats, Engineering Graduates and ITPC professionals are available but no innovative thinking/ideas are implemented in the field. Without any notice to the Customers, Free Night BB usage has been withdrawn by the BSNL. This wrong decision of BSNL gave a negative impact and customers are switched over to the Private Operator. Govt  Want to sell the BSNL shares and OFC. We should come together. It is the message to the Govt. Of India. He appreciated the working of Com. Prahlad Rai & thanked him in the way the historical MOU is signed. He appealed all the members of both the association to work hard & not only get the mandate for number one position but to create no scope for second association.

Com. P Venugopal, President CHQ AIBSNLEA welcomed all the dignitaries on dias. In his speech he  thanked the TN Circle team for the wonderful arrangements. He briefed about the Madurai city and the history of the city and expected that all will be returning to their city with memorable moments. He mentioned about the achievements made by the AIBSNLEA. He also mentioned about certain measures to be adopted by the BSNL for its viability such as encouraging payments through RTGS/NEFT instead of sending cheques by post, reduction in the no. of security guards, maximizing the no. of exchanges having free cooling facility, reduction in sanctioned EB load, capacity reduction and redeployment of Engine Alternators to reduce fuel expenses, increasing the no. of exchanges / BTS sites powered by Solar Energy and Mass calling programme, merge of RGMTTC, RTTC and CTTC, formation of dedicated teams at SSA level to offer priority treatment to redress the grievances of High calling / Corporate / Commercially important / Broadband customers, etc. reforming / streamlining the cable fault clearing mechanism at the field level so as to ensure seamless services, high calling landline connections can be converted as ISDN / PRI cover plan of Rs.5000 or Rs.10000, organizing BSNL festivals in Govt. offices, schools, colleges, factories, etc to market / promote BSNL products / services. He also mentioned that AIBSNLEA is always in the forefront to shoulder with BSNL unions / associations in the joint struggle against wrong policies of the BSNL/Govt. and the step motherly treatment of DoT. He mentioned about various methods which can be adopted to save lot of money for the viable of the BSNL.

Com Prahlad Rai, GS AIBSNLEA CHQ thanked the TN Circle for inviting him to attend the 5th Circle Conference of AIBSNLEA TN Circle. He mentioned that during the visit to Chennai, PGM(F) TN Circle informed that  Revenue increase in TN Circle up to Aug’2014 comparing to the previous year is 2% . It is achieved due to the Commitment, hard work  and Discipline of the Executives of TN Circle . TN Circle will also earn profit like Kerala, Orissa  and J&K very soon.

Regarding status of 78.2% IDA pay fixation to BSNL pensioners he  stated that DOT has taken a decision to seek cabinet approval for extending the benefit to those retired between 01-01-2007 and 09-06-2013 also because of the 60-40 issue. The DOT had already decided to seek cabinet approval for the pre 2007 retirees. Now, the Department  of  Expenditure will send the file back to the DOT to prepare the cabinet note in this regard.

He mentioned that GOI is having 100% stake in PSU. But Govt is directing BSNL to pay in the name so many Taxes and BSNL has paid the same. CMD, Director(F) and Director(HR) posts are vacant.  The NDA Government even after 100 days has not posted CMD.

He mentioned that In Tamilnadu, STR & Chennai Telephones so many lady comrades were transferred during DE Regular promotion. He assured that he has already taken up the cases with CMD and the requests are being examined for retention and will be processed to the Competent Authority for decision at the earliest. Regarding CPC from JAO to AO, he informed that he has requested the Competent Authority to clear the JAO to AO CPC proposal and the same will be cleared today and  the promotion order will be issued shortly.  Regarding VCRs to CAO (Regular), DE(Regular) and  DGM (Engg.) Adhoc Promotions, our association is making all efforts & requested CVO for sending the VCRs for the CPCs of 400 CAO (Regular), 200 DE(Regular) left out cases, and 480 DGM (Engg) Adhoc Promotions. All efforts are being made to collect the VCRs from circles. 

GS informed the house for his efforts for getting released 131 DGM (Finance) Adhoc to DGM (Finance) Regular promotion. He is making all efforts for getting issued early promotion orders of DGM(Finance/Adhoc)  to DGM(Finance/Regular) since all the VCRs from CVO office has been received in SEA cell . Regarding CPC from AO to CAO(Regular) he mentioned that CPC process to fill up 230 CAOs posts has been initiated. ACRs/VCRs are being collected shortly to expedite CPC.

Regarding 30% Superannuation benefit to the BSNL recruited employees as per DPE guidelines,  he informed that the matter is pending with ED(Finance). We will be discussing with the competent authority shortly  for  further necessary action. Regarding  E2 and E3 standard IDA pay scales to the JTOs and SDE equivalent executives he said that the clarification from DPE on E1A and E2A pay scales has been received and shortly it will be put up to the competent authority for further necessary action.  Regarding merger of Civil/Electrical/Arch. wings with SSAs he said that we are strongly protesting against the merger of Civil/Electrical/Arch. wings executives at SSA level beacuse one Executive Engineer will be reporting to one SSA Head and will work for 4-5 SSAs, which will adversely affect day to day work of all the SSAs and CE/SE will not have any control on these executives directly. On this issue, we had met ED(NB) who told that he has already submitted a proposal to CMD, BSNL to stop this merger in view of practical difficulties.

 

Regarding  consideration of Para 8 transfers of JTOs from hard tenure circles he informed that about 60-70 JTOs, circles have already considered para-8 transfers but the hard tenure circles are yet to consider in view of shortage. AIBSNLEA consistent efforts yielded result in getting released order  regarding Modification in the guidelines in transfer to Soft Tenure areas in BSNL

He also mentioned that we are aware of the hidden Agenda of the Govt.  Govt.  want to sell the BSNL OFC and Shares. They are threatening us. Through Forum of Unions & Associations we will issue Indefinite Strike Notice. It is a tool for us. We have to Unite. In spite of all these shortcomings w e have to work hard with the available sources. 30% Disinvestment and VRS is the old story. Let us contribute Maximum. Make BSNL Profit Making. We are continuously fighting against the wrong policies of the GOI and  we were able to stop it in the past through struggles.

Finally Sri. G.V.Reddy, the CGM, Tamilnadu Circle spoke in detail about the condition of our BSNL. The main hurdles for the BSNL are External Challenges and Internal Challenges. The financial constraints, lack of innovative ideas, inadequate efforts on our side are some of the internal problems and the insufficient care towards the end-users while taking our products to them, competition from private operators are of external challenges the BSNL has to meet. But our network is still powerful. The legacy of our system and network throughout the Nation could never be challenged by anyone. The skill of our work force also cannot be underestimated. But we have to take sustained efforts in increasing the revenue and making the end-user delighted. That is the main task. If so, BSNL will survive ever, he told. He greeted the Conference for the success and thanked us for having given such opportunity.

The Open Session commenced at 17.00 hours and ended at 22.15 hours with the vote of thanks given by Com.R.Sarat Babu JAO on behalf of the Reception Committee.

20.09.2014: Recent  developments in Kerala Circle: CGMT called a meeting of all the three executive's associations on 12-9-2014, to arrive at a consensus in the issue of  allowing all pending  request transfers in the cadre of JTOs/ SDEs in Kerala circle. A total of 79 cases were pending- 38 JTOS and 39 SDEs. SNEA's demand was to release all these cases without substitutes as sufficient number of newly recruited JTOs have been posted recently. CGM insisted for a one-to-one transfer back ( out-going transfer) for allowing request-transfers.  CGM's version was that all the newly recruited JTOs were posted in deficiency SSAs to maintain an equilibrium by way  of equalising the percentage of deficiency and now it is almost equal every where,. If any further transfer out-ward to a choice station/SSA is allowed now without making an equal number of transfer (one-to-one) back  from the corresponding stations , then this equilibrium will be  disturbed. according to CGM.

CS, AIBSNLEA,  presented  the following suggestion to resolve the issue in an amicable way. We requested to the CGM that, all pending request transfers to choice stations registered so far may be allowed without insisting for posting of substitutes for the time being. as it is unfair to issue compulsory transfers during the middle of academic year.  It can be done only after 31st March 2015. Till then such compensating transfers may be deferred. Most probably, JTO to SDE regular promotion will take place in the immediate future, as the stay order can be vacated on 9th  October 2014 itself due to the appearance of Senior Counsel Mr. Ramkumar for BSNL in the CAT Ernakulam in OA 185/2013. In that case newly promoted SDEs can be distributed to the deficiency SSAs without ordering any further inter-SSA transfers for maintaining equilibrium. In case this is not happening before 31-3-2015, then a fresh review based on the HR statistics at that time may be done and the minimum required shifting can be done based on long-stay. 

CGMT accepted this proposal of AIBSNLEA and  agreed to release all pending request transfers without insisting for one-to-one transfer back. Accordingly he issued all pending request transfer cases on the very next day, which finally resolved the issue.

19.09.2014: GS discussed with GM(FP) regarding

03.09.2014: GS, AGS(HQ), Circle President TN Circle met GM(SR) , DGM(SR) and discussed regarding:

(a) CPC from SDE(T) to DE(T) Regular of left out cases:  We requested to expedite the CPC from SDE(T) to DE(T) Regular of the left out cases at the earliest.  GM(SR) the chairman CPC mentioned that he is ceased with the CPC work and shortly CPC will be expedited of the left out cases.

(b) Relieving of JTOs/TTAs working on Deputations:  We expressed our serious concern against the relieving of JTOs/TTAs working on deputations cases from one circle to other circles on request and in the interest of service.  GM(SR) mentioned that he has discussed the matter with GM(Estt.) after our discussion and GM(Estt.) has appraised that the order has been issued with reference to those who have not been extended deputation by the competent authority and withhold by circles against the policy i.e. 5 years from normal circles and 3 years from the hard tenure circles.  We pleaded that these conditions are available for the deputation from one PSU to other PSU or Department.  In BSNL, JTOs/TTAs have been deputed from one circle to other circle on need basis and on their request, and the pleading of GM(Estt) is not reflecting in the said order.  Hence, such hasty action of relieving is not justified.   GM(SR) assured to further look into the matter.  

(c) Consideration for cancellation / modification of posting orders on DE Promotion on medical ground / immunity ground / Lady Executives / Spouse Cases:  We expressed our resentment against non-consideration of cancellation / modification of posting orders on DE Promotion on medical ground / immunity ground / Lady Executives / Spouse Cases etc. In many of the cases, the Pers. Cell has given posting on promotion on pick and choose method in violation of the BSNL Transfer Policy and immunity provisions available to the recognized Association Office Bearers.  Hence, no good-will prevails between the Management and the Association.  GM(SR) assured to discuss the matter with the competent authority and the concern officers.

03.09.2014: GS, FS , AGS(HQ),  President TN Circle and CS UP(East) Circle met GM(FP) and discussed regarding :-

(a) CPC from JAO to AO:   We requested to issue promotion orders from JAO to AO since the scrutiny work of ACRs / VCRs of the eligible JAOs has been completed by SEA Cell, BSNL Corporate Office.  GM(FP) mentioned that after completing the scrutiny work, the proposal to expedite CPC from JAO to AO has been sent to Dir(HR) for approval but he has marked the file to GM(Pers) for clearance and he has already discussed the matter with GM(Pers.). GM (Pers) has asked some more information which will be given to him by tomorrow.  He assured that as soon as the approval of the competent authority is received the promotion order to fill up about 1450 AO posts will be issued immediately.

(b) CPC from AO to CAO:  We requested to take up the matter with CMD BSNL for diversion of the 25% MT Quota Posts to the Seniority Quota which has already been cleared by BSNL Management Committee.  GM(FP) assured that he will plead with the competent authority to allow diversion as per BSNL MC decision without waiting for BSNL Board approval as the BSNL Board has already allowed diversion of 25% MT Quota Posts to the Seniority Quota Posts in Telecom Operation Wing.  However, the proposal to fill up about 250 CAO Posts of Seniority Quota has been sent to the competent authority for approval to initiate CPC considering the vacant CAO posts consequent upon promotion to DGM(F).

(c) CPC from CAO(Adhoc) to CAO(Regular):  GM(FP) assured to further talk in CVO Office for providing VCRs to expedite CPC.  We appraised him about our discussion with CVO in this regard.

(d) CPC from DGM(Adhoc) to DGM(Regular):  GM(FP) mentioned that VCRs of all the eligible executives have been received but some ACRs are still pending and efforts are being made to collect the ACRs. He assured to expedite CPC.

(e) Consideration of Request Transfers:  We requested for consideration of the request for transfer cases on the immunity available to the Office Bearers.  He assured to look in to the matter.

(f) Allowing option of JAO joined after 10-05-2007:  we requested to convene committee meeting at the earliest and to discuss the feedback given by this Association.  GM(FP) assured an early action in this regard.
