15.04.2010:-UF WRITES TO CMD,BSNL :- UF writes to CMD, BSNL on arbitrary and obsolete approach of BCG -GM(Rest) utilizing BCG to create huge promotional outlets for unabsorbed ITS officers by reducing the promotional avenues of JTOs/JAOs and SDEs/AOs: Click Here  Page-1  Page-2

1) Proposed reduction of 19000 JTO / JAO posts, 6500 SDE posts, 160 CAO posts and 70 DGM(F) posts.

2) To create additional 30 SAG posts and 100 HAG posts.

3) JTOs are yet to get their first functional promotion even after 13 years.

4) Highest level of inefficiency in the Company today is because of heavy concentration in SAG and HAG.

5) Sam Pitroda and other telecom experts rightly feel that just 200 SAG and 50 HAG are more than sufficient to run the Company smoothly.

6) The only objective to create such a huge number of posts of SAG and HAG in BSNL is to get promoted to these cadres in BSNL and then get repatriated to DOT on higher posts.

7)In deciding the crucial process of restructuring, let Managers absorbed in the Company get involved in the process, instead of those who have no stake in the growth of Organization.

12.04.2010:CMD BSNL called GS, AIBSNLEA and discussed:-                                                     

(a) Performance of BSNL : Regarding BSNL's performance, CMD mentioned that BSNL's turnover and overall performance is good but due to recent revised Pay/Wage revision BSNL's profit is declining. He wanted feed back on implementation of Restructuring process at SSA level and its impact. We explained that the restructuring suggested by BCG is finding difficulty in the field units/SSAs because to implement vertical bifurcation in NWP-CFA, Enterprise Business and Consumer Mobility is not practically possible due to shortage of manpower in rural areas. We suggested that BSNL should more concentrate to retain land line and Broad band services and their monthly rental needs review in comparison of GSM tariff. CMD assured to look into the matter.

 (b) Indefinite Strike w.e.f. 20.04.2010:- CMD appealed that Indefinite strike should be withdrawn in view of the customers inconvenience and image of BSNL. We explained that such decision may be taken by Joint Action Committee of BSNL Unions/Associations only and Govt/BSNL should not impose VRS, disinvestments of BSNL and should immediately decide ITS Officers absorption in BSNL as well as IDA pension revision of BSNL pensioners. Also should not allow unbundling of BSNL's last mile copper conductor and private operators to roam on BSNL's network on inter circle basis. BSNL should immediately have GSM equipment to meet out the demand of customers etc. on all these issues after brief discussions CMD assured that he will arrange a meeting of JAC leaders with Hon'ble MOC&IT shortly. 

(c) Implementation of DPE O.M. dated 02.04.2009 :- We requested for immediate implementation of DPE O.M. dated 2nd April 2009 regarding IDA fitment benefit from 68.8% to 78.2% . CMD further mentioned that if 78.2% of IDA fitment is given then 30% fitment benefit need reversion in view of BSNL's profit declining. We strongly oppose such thinking and requested to implement DPE O.M. in its true spirit. 

(d) Modification of BSNL MSRRs of Civil/Elect/Arch executives: We expressed our serious concern against non regularization of adhoc EEs Civil/Elect/Arch on the pretext of BSNLMS RRs. We requested that DOT RRs would not be diluted in BSNL in any case. CMD assured to look into the matter. 

(e) Regularisation of adhoc DEs:- We expressed our serious resentment against delay in regularization of adhoc DEs on the pretext of pending Court case and DOT direction etc.,. We requested CMD for his kind intervention to break the stalemate created by BSNL's Pers. Cell. CMD assured to discuss the matter with Director (HR) at the earliest.

(F) Finalisation of E1A, E2A and E9A IDA pay scales :  We requested that E1A, E2A and E9A IDA pay scales in the revised pay scale should be finalised at the earliest. Delay is causing frustration in the Executives. We pleaded that E9B new IDA pay scale proposed by BSNL Board should be dealt seperately. CMD assured to discuss the matter with Member (Fin) and Secy (T) for early finalisation.
