1.    DE to DGM (Engineering)promotion : We expressed our serious concern against non-filling of the vacant DGM Posts. The CPC is being dragged on the pretext of pending court case whereas there is no stay on the issuance of promotion orders of DE to DGM (Engg). Director (HR) appreciated our concern and mentioned that a certain group of the SDEs/DEs have been sending representations/SMSs which has created confusions but however, the CPC is under consideration and shortly promotion orders will be issued for 217 DGM posts.

2.    CPSU Cadre Hierarchy:  DIR (HR) directed DGM (Pers) to have a meeting with the representatives United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA and prepare a detailed presentation on CPSU cadre hierarchy for submission to CMD on 22ndFebruary 2016 and thereafter final discussions will be held on 25th February 2016 with the United Forum.

3.    E2-E3 pay scale: On the pay scale issue, Director said that the file is with her and she directed GM (Establishment) to hold a meeting with United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA. The meeting has been fixed on 16thFebruary 2016 at 15:00 hours wherein all the pending points will be discussed and showstoppers if any shall be taken care of.

4.    In regard to 30% Superannuation Benefits to BSNL Recruited Employees, it was informed that the issue is in active consideration and it has been agreed in principle that benefits are to be extended. However the quantum and date of implementation is to be decided by the remuneration committee of BSNL Board which is likely to meet either on 22nd or 23rd of the February 2016.

5.     Rule-8 transfer cases: The process for special recruitment in deficit circles has been expedited and GM recruitment is being posted exclusively so that the process can go in fast track mode.

6.    Date of Effect of Implementation of Upgraded Pay Scales w.e.f. 01.10.2000 to the JTOs/SDEs Civil/Electrical/Arch/TF Engineering wings and PA/PS Cadre: Director (HR) assured further to discuss the matter with GM (Estt) for an early resolution. Director (HR) appreciated our concern and mentioned that these may be taken up with CMD BSNL for a decision on the same.

7.    Restoration of LTC/Leave Encashment on LTC, HRA on 78.2 % instead of 68.8 percent fitment, Payment of 50% Medical claims without vouchers etc.: We requested for restoration of these benefits which were linked with the profit of BSNL and now that BSNL has shown operating profit, the benefits which were put on hold should be restored.

From the above, it is very clear that though management has been giving assurances and trying to resolve the issues but HR managers down the line are perhaps creating hurdles on the way. We have decided to wait till February 29th 2016 for resolution and clarity on the issues. Thereafter, United Forum shall be once gain resuming the deferred agitation Program and this time nothing less than final orders will lead to withdrawal or deferment of the Program. We request members to be prepared for the decisive struggle if need arises in future.

We extended thanks for issuing the orders but protested against the comment that the pay fixation method may be given notionally w.e.f. 01.01.2007 and actually from the date of approval by DOT i.e. 06.01.2016. We demanded payment of arrears as per the 2nd PRC notification as it was delayed due to administrative reasons without any fault of the individual. GM (Estt)  assured to look into and also discussed as follows:-

(a) Fixation of pay of officiating JTOs under FR22(I)a(i)and reversion before sending them for Phase-I, training- we further protested against this order dated 22 Dec-2015 and requested for its withdrawal , since as per BSNL Board decision these JTOs are to be regularized even without  any further  training and reversion but due to Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh and Ernakulam Judgements the super numeric posts of JTOs  could not be created further hence, a via media arrangement has been made by framing  new JTO RR-2014 just to regularized these JTO officiating. Hence, reversion of officiating JTOs is not at all justified at this juncture and it is violation of the BSNL Board decision. But the GM(Estt) was reluctant to withdraw this order. Now legal course of action are immediately to be taken.

b) Recruitment of JTOs/ TTAs:- GM (Estt) informed that recruitment cell has already been advised to fill up more than 10000 vacant JTO posts. Similarly, it has been decided to go for 2000 JTO DR quota and 2500 TTA DR quota recruitment immediately. This time JTOs DR quota will be recruited on the basis of one circle choice only to avoid distant circle postings.

20.01.2016:  GS, OS (West), CS MH Circle met PGM (EW), BSNL CO and discussed regarding:

A. Consideration of SDEs retention / modification /cancellation of transfer orders on genuine grounds: We requested for consideration of some SDEs (Electrical) of Maharashtra Circle retention / modification /cancellation of transfer orders on genuine grounds. PGM (EW) assured to examine and consider the cases.

B. Filling up the vacant posts of PCE/CE/SE/EE (Electrical): We requested for filling up of the vacant posts of PCE/CE/SE/EE (Electrical). PGM (EW) informed that to initiate the CPCs proposals from CE to PCE, SE to CE have been sent to the competent authority for approval. As soon as the approval is received the CPCs will be expedited.

The CPC from EE to SE is in progress and most of the ACRs / VCRs of the eligible EEs have been received. CPC will be expedited and promotion orders will be issued shortly to fill up 27 vacant SE (Electrical) posts.
