20.06.2012:  GS, President, AGS(HQ) met GM(Tranging) BSNL CO and discussed

(a) Identification of Training Needs: We appreciated the concern of BSNL Management for issuing instructions to Circles vide letter no. 4-1/2012-Trg. Dated 18.06.2012 for identification of training needs to the newly promoted SDEs to be posted in different verticals. We request that such special trainings are required to all the existing executives also in order to upgrade their skill in new technologies and to have their best utilization. GM(Training) mentioned that already refresher courses are being conducted in the Training Centers. We mentioned that Circles are not deputing and relieving executives to attend the refresher course trainings. Hence, further instructions to Circles are required to be released.

(b) Two weeks of training to executives whose pay is upgraded and on every promotion under EPP- needs review:  We expressed our concern that as per EPP every executive whose pay is upgraded to next higher IDA pay scale, the concerned executives shall have to compulsorily undergo Two Weeks of Training for being eligible for drawal of Second increment in the upgraded IDA scale. But later on it was changed to e-mode and online examination w.e.f. 01.04.2011 in view of saving expenditure of TA/DA and training Centers establishment cost etc considering the state of BSNL Finance. Even though saving is achieved in not conducting the classes, but the executives were asked to go to RTTCs to write the exams by incurring expenditure on TA/DA, which again a huge expenditure on BSNL.

Moreover, there is no such training provision exists in BSNL's non-executive promotion policy as well as no such training provision is envisaged in the BSNL MSRRs on Post based promotions to Group-'A' level executives. Also deputationist officers are getting uninterrupted functional promotions against BSNL's posts without undergone of any training course. We requested that the training/examination clauses of EPP are immediately withdrawn to save the huge expenditure of BSNL and to provide justice to Group-'B' level executives in BSNL.

GM(Trg.) mentioned that it is as per the provision exist in the EPP and advised to take up the matter at the appropriate level.

(i) BSNL employees post-settlement, defer indefinite agitation <<Click Here for detail news>>

14.06.2012:Congratulations ! AIBSNLEA consistent efforts yielded result in getting released the LDCE result on 12th June'2012. Due to court case pending in Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh filed by some executives demanding quashing the LDCE wherein some  JTOs have been allowed to appear in the LDCE for whom the reversion was avoided by creation of super-numeric posts. Wherein  Hon'ble High Court ordered contempt against CMD BSNL for creation of super-numeric posts of JTOs. We immediately met Director (EB/HR) and GM(Estt.) and other concern officers to defend the court case properly and early declaration of LDCE result so that stay order or  quashing the LDCE is avoided. Director (EB/HR) and GM(Estt.) immediately intervene in the matter and the LDCE result is declared quickly to avoid further complications.

Also this association represented through communications AIBSNLEA/CHQ/ Director (HR)/2011-12 and AIBSNLEA/CHQ/CMD/2011-12 dated 27.03.2012 & 29.03.2012 for removing ambiguity in questions and options w.r.t. provisional answer key provided by BSNL (Paper-I Advance Technical Paper- General)  of LDCE promotion to SDE(T) held on 04.03.2012 and remove the discrepancies in the questions of JTO to SDE(T) promotion exam (LDCE) held on 04.03.2102. With the untiring efforts of AIBSNLEA the descriptive type examination was changed to OMR based objective type examination which also made easy in preparing result of LDCE.

Our timely persuasion to correct the deficiencies and ambiguity in questions and options w.r.t answer key resulted "09 marks to all the candidates" in Paper-I and "Some marks to all candidates" for some questions in Paper-II also. This has resulted in getting pass maximum to 2726 candidates. Still, some vacancies remains unfilled in SC/ST quota of LDCE. Sincere efforts are being made to get released the promotion orders at the earliest. Pers. Cell-II BSNL Corporate Office  has already called the VCRs of SC/ST Candidates from Circles. All the Circle Secretaries are requested to ensure early sending of VCRs for early promotion orders.

We have also requested to Sr. GM(Pers.) for posting on promotion to SDEs in the same Circles where the vacancies are available or nearby Circles in case the vacancies are  not available. All the Circle Secretaries are requested to send representations of promoted SDEs to CHQ through FAX or e-mail for choice of posting  at the earliest to help our members.

Congratulations! Congratulations to all the successful candidates.

12.06.2012: General Body Meeting of AIBSNLEA CTD & WBT Circle at CTO Building Kolkata on 08-06-2012: A General Body Meeting of AIBSNLEA CTD & WBT Circle took place at CTO Building Kolkata on 08-06-2012 at 3 P.M.  Shri Prahlad Rai, GS and Shri P. Venugopal, President AIBSNLEA, CHQ  attended the meeting.  The meeting was grand success as the Hall was jam packed.   The meeting was presided over by Shri Tapan Das, President of AIBSNLEA CTD & Shri Swapan Bose, President of AIBSNLEA WBT jointly.  Shri Prasun Mukhopadhyay, CS CTD delivered his welcome  address with a key-note to the GS & President, CHQ & Shri Bijay Bhattacharyya also delivered welcome speech. Shri Amit Gupta OS(E),CHQ also indicated our current demands in his welcome note.

Shri P. Venugopal, President discussed various issues in BSNL.  He said that during the last two years the BSNL Management curtailed the expenditure due to shortage of fund.  Operating expenditure has also been cut.  He said that in Calcutta Telephones the situation is alarming as  the payment of Salary of Job Contract Labour and Security Guard are made by diverting fund from other heads. As a result Mtce. work is suffering.  He assured to ask BSNL Board to sanction extra fund otherwise it is very difficult to pay the salary of Job Contract Labour and Security Guard.  He mentioned that Customer Delight Month & Customer Delight year is observed through out India by the JAC with a view to earn more & more Revenue.  But it is very difficult to make the BSNL Financial viable unless the ITS OFFICERS ABSORPTION issue is resolved. 

BSNL Management is reluctant to complete the repatriation  process of ITS officers on the plea that if all the ITS Officer is released from BSNL at a time, there will be a crisis in the Management level.  But we are sure if the absorbed Executive take the charge of high office the BSNL may run well as an example of it he said that one DE as SSA Head is making profit in BSNL whereas the ITS officer it is going in loss.  He also mentioned that Executive Promotion Policy has been implemented successfully.  Now the Time Bound Promotion is done in a regular manner.  Earlier officiating DE/CAO got retired without getting regular promotion  but now this has changed at least they got the Time Bound Promotion and got financially benefited.  DPC from JAO to AO & AO to CAO & CAO to DGM is under process.  He thanked both the circle for the active role in the BSNL movement.

In his address Shri Prahlad Rai, GS AIBSNLEA expressed that last All India Conference was held at Kolkata successfully. He mentioned that in the CGM meeting, CGM Kolkata has requested to intervene for procurement of BROADBAND MODEM, Cable, Instruments, SMPS Power plant, battery etc.  GS assured to take the case for issue of required materials to the BSNL Management. All the important issues has been finalized except  ITS Absorption.  It was assured at the time of absorption that Time Bound Promotion upto the SG JAG level to given to the absorbed Executives of BSNL. There is a Transparent Transfer Policy imposed.  Earlier there were many illogical provisions.  Mobile Telephone connection to all the Executive has been sanctioned and cost of Handset also.  2nd PRC with 30% Fitment with Basic has been achieved.  All PSU Organization  protested for 68.8% IDA fitment since it was wrong.  It should be 78.2% instead of 68.8% and the DPE order has issued on 2nd April'2009.  That we  pursued with BSNL Management and they did not accept our demand, that time we were in profit of Rs. 574 crores.  After that during the last 3 years we are in loss.   

BSNL Management is very much interested to protect the interest of ITS Officers instead of making the BSNL Profitable.  At the time of formation of BSNL it was assured to reimbursement of license fee, ADC charge, payment from USO Fund for giving rural service, OPEX Charges Rs.  5,000 crores was to be given from Administrative Ministry now they  refused to payment towards license fee, ADC, USO.  No financial help was given to BSNL.  When Rs. 30,000 Crores cash reserve was there BSNL, Govt. exhausted this reserve on the plea of payment of WIMAX Spectrum, 3G Spectrum etc.  PAN India is compulsory for BSNL of 3G service.  10,200 crores was paid by BSNL whereas private operators  i.e. AIRTEL was paid only Rs. 5000 crores or less to Govt. of India.  Sam Pitroda Committee recommended for 30% disinvestment and VRS for 1,00,000 employees.  Lifeline of BSNL is COPPER WIRE which is recommended for unbundling. We strongly protested against these recommendations.  There is acute shortage of Telephone Instruments, Modem, Cable and we are unable to give new connections,  now Telecom Factory is manufacturing the drop wire and is supplying  to field units. Customer delight year is being observed by the JAC all over INDIA.  1 MILLION  BB (ADSL) Modem Tendering is finalized.  Cable Tender is also finalized.  45.5 Million GSM Tender was floated in the year 2007 but only 23.0 Million GSM Equipment was procured as a result of the protest by BSNL Non-Executives Unions & Executive Associations. 

Regarding Strike on 13th June'2012 onwards,  previously it was decided that only 31st MAY Demonstration and 6th June Dharna.  But later it was changed due to decision of the Management Committee for issuing order for payment of allotment of 6th  CPC for ITS officers though they are denying the genuine demand of Executive and non Executive of DPE order.  Absorption of ITS Officers is not yet finalized during the last 7 years.    Hon'ble  Delhi High Court gave 15 days time for ITS Officers to make their choice of employer.    Finally 30th September, 2012 is the last date for giving option of ITS Officers hereafter  that no deputationist ITS Officer should remain in BSNL.  We demand 78.2% IDA Fitment benefit and review of perks and allowances, payment of medical, LTC etc.  So please go on indefinite Strike w.e.f. 13th June, 2012. 

Regarding problems of Contractual  Labour.  A meeting was held with CGM Kolkata, we categorically told that it is the responsibility of CGM & GM to ensure that their wage payment is made in time and it  should not be imposed to our member.  CGM will arrange of fund for payment of contractual labour.  Pending Disciplinary cases - CMD BSNL directed that all cases received on monthly basis will be dealt by CGM with DGM(Vig.) &  necessary action will be taken for early settlement.   DPC from AO to CAO,   SDE to DE, DE to DGM, JAO to AO, JTO to SDE case is under process. But Court Cases are delaying the process in Telecom Engg. Wing.  Creation of PPS post to field units of BSNL, Scale of AD(O/L) case will be resolved shortly.  E1A & E2A Scale - CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, a Committee has been constituted.  Court case of SDE/JTO is settled and now it is under process.  1500 Ad-hoc DE - case is under process.  400 DGM Engineering Promotions is order is expected shortly.  SDE (67%) is expected in 2/3 months SDE(33%) result may come within weeks. There are  vacancies around 6000 in all. He suggested  that the 2nd upgradation case of AO and AAO to be resolved in Court only. He told that we will take up the case to stop ON LINE Exam. & reintroduce OFF LINE Exam. for EPP to the competent authority.

The meeting ended with thanks to the chair. The vote of thanks was given by Shri Manas Roy, VP/CHQ. <<Click Here for Glimpses>>

11.06.2012:Conciliatory proceedings with Dy. Labour Commissioner: Dy. Labour Commissioner called a meeting of Management and Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations on the notice for indefinite strike w.e.f 13.06.2012 as CLC was out of station. Director(EB), PGM(SR), GM(Estt.), DGM(SR) were present from Management side. President, AIBSNLEA and other Forum leaders participated in the proceedings. Management continued their earlier stand that the 78.2% IDA merger cannot be implemented now due to the financial condition of the company but silent on the crucial issue, why 100% DA neutralization was implemented for the unabsorbed Group A officers working in the same company and why discrimination? Forum leaders explained in the meeting that 100% IDA neutralization as on 01.01.2007 is nothing to do with todays financial condition and as per the Govt./DPE orders dated 26.11.2008, the profit for the year 2007-08 has to be take into account for the pay revision and on that year, BSNL was in profit with more than 30,000 Crores cash reserve. The present crisis occurred due to the lethargic attitude of BSNL Management and the Govt. in procuring equipments, taking prompt decisions and settling policy issues like ITS absorption for which the employees cannot be held responsible. BSNL employees are no way connected with this and they can merely implement the decisions taken by the top Management. Almost all the suggestions given by the Associations/Unions for the revival of the company in the last few years simply ignored by the BSNL Management and Govt. By non implementation of 100% IDA neutralization w.e.f 01.01.2007, BSNL employees are getting 12.5% less basic pay and salary from 01.01.2007. The pension of the retired employees including those retired prior to 01.01.2007 (2000 to 2006) also fixed with 68.8% only instead of 78.2% IDA.

As there is no breakthrough in the discussions, forum of BSNL Unions/Associations appeal to all our activists to make all out preparations for the indefinite strike w.e.f. 00.00 Hrs of 13.06.2012.

08.06.2012: INDEFINITE STRIKE IMMINENT : There are only three more days for the historic indefinite strike to start. According to reports received by the CHQ, the strike is going to be a hundred per cent success. Spontaneous and massive preparations are going on throughout the country to make the strike a historic success. All the Unions and associations of BSNL are united completely to end the injustice being meted out to the employees. From the Management side there is no honest and worth mentioning attempt to avert the strike. After the 1st June discussion, management has not taken any step to resolve the crises. The conciliation that is going to take place with the Chief Labour Commissioner next Monday is not going to yield any result, unless the management comes forward to settle the issue. Hence, in all probabilities, the indefinite strike from 13th instant has become imminent. Hence, CHQ calls upon all the leaders and cadres to take all out efforts to make the strike a resounding success. CLICK HERE: <<Circular>>,, <<Badge>>, <<Poster>>

The overwhelming response of BSNL employees in the MASS DHARNA programme on 31st May and 6th June 2012  has expressed their anguish and frustration against non implementation of 2nd PRC recommendation and DPE order for revision of allowances, perks and 78.2% IDA fitment benefit. MASS DHARNA was very successfully implemented in BSNL Corporate Office also.

BSNL Management with a negligent and indifferent attitude is not interested to settle the legitimate demands of BSNL employees wherein BSNL employees are drawing 9.4% less pay in their basic pay. But the deputationist ITS Officers are getting 100% DA fitment benefit as per 6th CPC recommendations. 

To strongly protest against the indifferent and discriminatory attitude of the BSNL management the Indefinite strike w.e.f. 13th June 2012 has to be very successfully  implemented till the time our legitimate demands are not resolved.

 (b) Removal of Pay anomaly caused on implementation of EPP, wherein seniors drawing less pay than juniors:We expressed our serious concern against negative report of committee on this issue despite of the Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam Bench direction to step up the pay of seniors w.r.t. their juniors as per the provision of FR&SR. GM(Estt) after some discussion mentioned that though he was member of the committee but he was not aware of such court Judgement. We apprised him that the Hon'ble Court judgement copy was forwarded by us to the Chairman and Convenor Committee, but they did not gave convergence   to this order.

(a)    Anomaly of pay due to anti-dating of DNI wherein seniors are drawing less pay then juniors on implementation of 2nd PRC: We strongly protested against further constituting a committee to examine the case as already one committee has submitted its report through which the issue could not be resolved. Director (EB) had detailed discussions on this issue and assured that the committee formed on this issue will submit its report within 10 days time and accordingly an early decision will be taken. We further proposed that while preponding the DNI of a senior executive to his junior's DNI and equal to him the DNI of senior should be restored on his due date of DNI, so that senior do not start getting less pay than their junior executive. Director (EB) assured to look into the matter and for an early settlement.  

(b) Pay anomaly case wherein senior executives drawing less pay than their juniors on the implementation of EPP.  We requested for his intervention on this issue so that the pay anomaly of seniors is removed. We explained  that on implementation of EPP wherein junior executive got post based promotion after getting time bound financial upgradation are drawing more salary than their senior executives who got post based promotion without getting time bound financial upgradation.

01.06.2012: Agitation Programmes of Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations will continue since the talk with CMD, BSNL failed: GS, President along with the representatives  of Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations attended meeting with CMD, BSNL. Director(EB), Director (Finance), PGM(SR), GM(Estt.), GM(CA), DGM(SR) and AGM(SR) were also present in the meeting. CMD, BSNL welcomed the representatives and asked to discuss their demands. The representatives of Forum one by one resented and strongly demanded the implementation of DPE orders dated 26th Nov'2008 and 2nd April'2009 and revision of Allowances as per 2nd PRC recommendations and 78.2% IDA fitment benefit in the pay respectively . They also protested against the discriminatory attitude of the BSNL Management wherein Management has issued order for payment of all the allowances  and pay fixation order to un-absorbed ITS Officers as per 6th CPC recommendations. CMD after hearing all the representatives of Forum accepted that they don't have much to discuss today but the demands of Forum can be accepted, only when the company's financial health improves, till the time employees should have patience. Forum leaders categorically told that since BSNL Management is giving all 6th CPC benefits to non-optee ITS Officers and providing vehicles (SWIFT Dzire, Maruti SX-4, Honda City etc.) then how management is pleading financial implications for BSNL absorbed employees.

 Hence, Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations after CMD's Meeting in  its meeting decided to continue proposed agitation programmes i.e. DHARNA on 6th June'2012  and Indefinite strike w.e.f. 13th June'2012 .
