27.10.2010 : MASS DHARNA on 28.10.2010 : Convener JAC met CMD BSNL and discussed about payment of Bonus before Diwali. CMD reiterated the stand that Bonus cannot be paid since Company is in loss. However, he may put the issue before BSNL Board. All the Circle / Branch Secretaries are requested to implement JAC programme of MASS DHARNA on 28th Oct, 2010 successfully.

27.10.2010 : GS discussed with PGM (BW) regarding :

(a) DPC to regularise adhoc EEs (C) : PGM (BW) informed that the DPC to regularise about 220 EEs (C) adhoc is in progress. Most of the ACRs / VCRs have been received. Efforts are being made to complete DPC at the earliest and issuing regular promotion order after the approval of the competent authority.

(b) Consideration of request / tenure transfers of SDEs / EEs (C) : We requested for consideration of request / tenure transfers and modification of some transfer orders of SDEs (C) / EEs (C). PGM (BW) assured to look into the matter.

27.10.2010 : GS, President, AGS (HQ), FS met CMD BSNL and discussed :

(a) Payment of PLI : We requested for payment of PLI for the year 2009-10 since BSNL got good grading and the provision for payment of PLI was already made in the balance sheet of BSNL for year 2009-10. CMD mentioned that since BSNL is not making profit and as per DPE guidelines PLI cannot be paid. He immediately spoke to CMD MTNL and inquired about PLI payment in MTNL. CMD MTNL replied that since MTNL has made 2500 crores loss for the year 2009-10 and as per DPE guidelines PLI cannot be paid to employees. After discussion with CMD MTNL, CMD BSNL tried to convince that Unions and Associations should drop the issue at this juncture and should call upon the employees for earning profit for BSNL. He further mentioned that even small acts can earn profit e.g. one employee should bring one broadband customer everyday and SDOs / JTOs should hold regular meetings with their line staff at least twice in a week to discuss the developmental and maintenance activities. It will provide leadership and involvement of staff. When we apprised him about the shortage of drop wire and telephone instruments in field units, he immediately spoke to Dir (CFA) and asked the store / material position. Dir (CFA) apprised him that drop wire is being directly procured by Circles from Telecom Factory and regarding shortage of telephone instruments no Circle has reported to BSNL CO. In this regard, CMD advised to provide the feedback to Dir (CFA) for necessary action. CMD lastly assured to put up the PLI issue in the next BSNL Board meeting for consideration.

(b) Implementation of DPE order regarding 78.2% IDA fitment benefit instead of 68.8% : We further requested for implementation of DPE order regarding 78.2% IDA fitment benefit instead of 68.8%. CMD mentioned that the matter was discussed in the BSNL Board meeting but BSNL Board advised to implement the order only when there is a sign of profit in BSNL. He advised that efforts should be made to earn profit in this current financial year so that such issues can be considered. He informed that BSNL is to borrow Rs. 2000 crores shortly to meet out the regular expenses. If this DPE order is implemented Rs. 1000 crores financial implications will be there immediately. We further requested that it is the DPE order which needs implementation like 6th CPC recommendations implementations.

(c) DPC to fill up vacant DGM (Engg) posts and DEs regularisation : We requested to fill up all vacant DGM (Engg) posts and to regularise adhoc DEs against vacant DE regular posts. CMD informed that both the DPCs are in progress and shortly the process will be completed.

(d) Cancellation of transfer orders of Gr. B level Executives on the basis of ODI lists : CMD mentioned that the matter has already been taken up with DOT for clarification about Gr. B level Executives transfers on the basis of ODI lists. However, he assured to further discuss the matter with Member (S) for early clarification.

(e) Unlawful recoveries of PAs / PSs of Kerala Circle based on BSNL CO Pers section clarification : We expressed our serious concern against BSNL CO clarification issued to CGMT Kerala Circle regarding not considering the period from 01.10.2000 to 01.01.2004 for the purpose of counting of residency period for EPP in case of PAs / PSs for whom the RRs were notified on 01.01.2004. After BSNL CO clarification, CGMT Kerala Circle has issued order for recoveries of 81 PAs / PSs of Kerala Circle, who will be facing Rs. 2.5 to 3 lakhs (each) recoveries. We requested to withdraw the order in view of earlier BSNL Management decision and requested to stop recoveries. CMD assured to look into the matter.

Most of the General Secretaries and the Convenor of the JAC participated in the hunger strike. The programme is very successful. On behalf of the management, shri R.K. Agarwal, Director (Planning) invited the fasting leaders for discussion. After detailed discussion, the Director (Planning) assured that our demand for payment of bonus would be strongly taken up in the next Board meeting.

15.10.2010: Date of Dharna changed to 28.10.2010 :-The JAC had earlier given call to conduct Nation Wide dharna on 19.10.2010. However, it came to the notice of the JAC leaders that Shri Gopal Das, CMD BSNL had gone on a foreign tour and would be returning to the Delhi only around 23.10.2010. In view of this development the JAC, in its meeting held today, decided to change the date of the dharna to 28.10.2010, since there is no use in holding the dharna when the CMD has gone on foreign tour.

13.10.2010: JAC finalises strike notice - Dates of strike and March to Parliament changed :- The JAC meeting took place yesterday the 12.10.2010, at New Delhi. In the meeting, the demands to be incorporated in the 3 day strike notice were finalized. The JAC has made a change in the dates of the 3 day strike. This was necessitated due to the fact that the counting of votes for Bihar assembly elections is to take place on 24.10.2010. Similarly, the date for "March to the Parliament" is also changed in view of the fact that the US President is visiting Delhi and will be addressing the Indian Parliament. Now, the final dates of the strike and "March to Parliament" will be as follows.
