Com P. Venugopal, President, AIBSNLEA, in his address expressed sincere gratitude to Jabalpur Circle, BRBRAITT, for making wonderful arrangement for the CWC. President  informed that since the inception of BSNL, all the executives and non-executives are dedicatedly working for the growth of BSNL.  But, it is painful to say that the ITS officers, who are leading us is not able to take a decision on their absorption issue.  He requested the ITS officers to get absorb in BSNL and join the work force of BSNL so that BSNL can achieve its original position.  He informed that DoT has requested the executives of face any contingency situation to manage the BSNL in the case of ITS officer not opted for BSNL.  President has informed that on behalf of the Association our CHQ has already informed the DoT that BSNL executives are ready to face any challenge. President has stated that at the time when BSNL employees were putting their maximum efforts to bring back the BSNL in its original position despite of all odds, the management has proposed the VRS and the same has diverted the focus of the employees from its efforts.  MTNL has in no way benefited with VRS and the same will be the result in BSNL too.  The VRS is proposed to cover up the mis-management of BSNL by the management.  As regards the viability of BSNL, BSNL has earned profit around 9 years, the revenue in landline itself has reduced drastically, where all the taxes, etc. liable to be paid by the BSNL in intact and there is no change in it.   He informed that AIBSNLEA is striving its best to educate its members and in supporting the management to grow and earn its original position.  He has requested all the members to provide better and delighted services to its customers.

Com.

He requested all the ITS officers to get absorbed in the BSNL and to be part of the organisation and lead the force.    He also pointed out that in case ITS officers are not willing to get absorbed in the BSNL they should go back to DoT, so that BSNL can make its own arrangement and the uncertainty will be ended once for all.  

Shri A.C. Mishra, Sr. GMTD, Jabalpur in his addressed  informed that the dynamic leader like Shri Prahlad Rai is capable to take care of all the needs of the executives and expressed that BSNL management will look into the issues favourably and settle the issues. He informed that BSNL is in the 4th position as on date in the market.  Lack of timely procurement of equipment and non-focus on products like WLL and its technology, planning and sales strategy is cause of it.  WiMAX also is now in uncertainty and BWA spectrum is being returned to DoT.  In case BSNL is not planning and implementing and its sale technology, the situation of BSNL will more worsened. Value addition to the landline services are required to keep the basis services.  Lack of modems and EPBTs are also contributing  heavily in the present situation of BSNL.  He has pointed out that overall change in  technology  implementation , attitude, sale strategy,  is the need of the hour.

Shri G.C. Manna, Sr. G.M. , Inspection Circle, Jabalpur mentioned that  as regards the quality of service, as mentioned by the GS, the quality of service of 114 places was analysed by the inspection circle and there is an overall improvement in the services and requested to keep the same trend.  The telecommunication journal released by Inspection circle  was presented to all the dignitaries on the Dias and also to all members present.  He informed that the journal is released in two volumes and requested every one to subscribe the magazine so that all the technical / technological development and its knowledge can be passed to all and also through its newly designed website.  He informed that all the publications are registered one.

He stated that we should focus and be dedicated to increase the  revenue and stop worrying.  BRBRAITT has designed a motivational course and the same will be imparted to around 2500 executives including top management. He informed that BRBRAITT has designed and commenced imparting multiple number of  courses for the outsiders.

Shri Jitendra Vyas, CGM(TF), Jabalpur  in his speech stated that many of us are seeing that what we get from others, instead looking that what we are giving.  He further mentioned that de-centralisation of necessary powers are required to satisfy the customers at all levels right from counter staff.    He stated that self analyzation is must and we have to learn to give the same what we expect from others.

04.10.2011:  Note on discussion between the JAC and BSNL management, held on 03.10.2011 <<Click here for Note on discussion>>

04.10.2011: Meeting with CMD BSNL: GS, President, AGS(HQ) met CMD, BSNL and discussed

(a) Viability of BSNL &  VRS: We requested to CMD BSNL to apprise about the status of VRS. CMD informed that BSNL Board has approved the VRS and today itself the same may be sent to administrative ministry (DoT) for its consideration. CMD tried to justified that it is  voluntarily retirement scheme which will be in the interest of BSNL and also in the interest of employees who is going to take VRS as well as who remains in the BSNL. He also mentioned that an organization with average age of employees more than 49 years,  can't survive in long term and it is only one of the efforts by which BSNL can be make a vibrant organization. He also added that VRS will be implemented only when the DoT provides financial support. We reacted that in case the one lakh employees are given VRS, how the organization will run, having such a big infrastructure in landline & Mobile network in the rural and urban areas of the country. It will over load the remaining employees and will adversely affect the services and customer care. Hence, VRS can't be the solution to turn around the company. BSNL Management should concentrate for the procurement of GSM equipment, telephone instruments, cables, Broadband modems, MLLN equipments, drop wire etc and proper planning to utilize the existing expert man-power for the growth of BSNL. CMD mentioned that we are planning to lease out towers and spare bandwidth of OFC network to vendors for earning revenue but these are the hygienic points only and major revenue expenditure can be saved by reducing staff. He mentioned that BSNL is earning about Rs. 100 crs. per day but its expenditure is more and upto Sept'2011 (this financial year) the release of fund from Corporate office is Rs. 1000 crs. more than the receipts. However, we opposed VRS proposal at this juncture and outsourcing .  

(b) ITS absorption issue: On our query on ITS absorption issue, CMD informed that this time it is a real process of absorption for ITS officers and it will end thereafter. He mentioned that government is serious to complete the absorption process and in case the ITS officers do not exercise the option, they will be repatriated to DoT and BSNL will start its  own recruitment on need basis. He mentioned that it may take more than six months time which may affect the growth of BSNL also but BSNL has to  face the situation.

(c) Holding of DPCs in various cadres: We expressed our serious concern against the non-holding of DPCs in various cadres. Whereas a large number of Group - 'A' and 'B' posts are lying vacant.  CMD assured to look into the matter.  

(d) Merging of Mtce. Region , Telecom Project Circles with Territorial Circles and  Inspection Circle with QA Circle :  We suggested to reduce the establishment expenditure by merging of Mtce. , Telecom Project Circles with Territorial Circles and  Inspection Circle with QA Circle.  CMD assured to look into the matter.

04.10.2011:GS , President met Sr. GM(Pers.) and discussed

(a) DPCs from SDE(T) to DE(Adhoc) & DE(Regular) : We requested to initiate DPCs to fill up vacant  DEs (Adhoc) / DE(Regular) posts.  Sr. GM(Pers.) mentioned that legal opinion is being taken to operate TES Group - 'B' list no. 6  shortly to initiate DPCs. We explained that in  Jun'10-July'10 already list no. 6 has been operated during the DE(adhoc)/(Regular) promotions.  He assured an early action in this regard.

(b) Filling up of DGM(Engg.) posts : We requested to fill up vacant DGM posts by the eligible DEs. Sr. GM(Pers.) mentioned that DoT opinion on 270 SDEs seniority court case has been sought. We further requested that atleast the officers whose seniority is un- disputed may be promoted since they are retiring.   Sr. GM(Pers.) advice to take up the matter with competent authority.

(c) Submission of Committee reports on Pay anomaly case - Senior Executives are drawing less pay than their Juniors and Sr. AO/Sr. SDE & PA/PS recovery case: We expressed our serious concern against delay in submitting Committee report on Pay anomaly case - Senior Executives are drawing less pay than their Juniors and Sr. AO/Sr. SDE & PA/PS recovery case. Sr. GM(Pers.) informed that today committee meeting could not be held due to busy schedule of PGM(FP).
