27.09.2010:  GS, President, AGS(F) met ED(F) & discussed :-

(a) Filling up of vacant DGM(F) Posts:- We requested for filling up of vacant DGM(F) Posts (about 103) since the DPC was completed along with 269 DGM(F) promotions. ED(F) mentioned that BSNL Management Committee has allowed to fill up about 70 DGM (F) posts. The minutes are awaited. As soon as the minutes and the VCRs of eligible candidate are received, promotion order will be issued. 

(b) Consideration of request/tenure transfers of JAOs/AOs/CAOs:- We requested to consider all pending request / tenure transfers of JAOs/AOs/CAOs, who completed Two years of service upto 30st Sep'2010.  ED(F) assured to look into the matter.

ED (F) mentioned that matter is under consideration but after seeing the all implications decision will be taken.

27.09.2010:  GS, President, AGS(F), AGS (HQ) met Sr. GM (Estt.) & discussed :-

(a)  Finalisation of JTO seniority list in circles:- We requested for early finalisation of JTO seniority list in circles so that DPC to SDE(T) promotion can be held. Sr. GM (Estt.) mentioned that efforts are being made to finalise the JTO seniority list but certain objections have been raised on finalising the seniority list e.g. JTO seniority list to be finalise on the basis of date of appointment in the cadre not, on the basis of year of recruitment etc. We expressed our serious concern against delay in finalising the seniority list since more then 10,000 SDEs(T) posts are lying vacant. Sr. GM (Estt.) further mentioned that Associations can sit together and resolve the issue.

(b) Regularisation of Officiating JTOs:- Sr. GM mentioned that  regularisation of officiationg JTO issue could not be resolved due to contempt case pending in Hon'ble Chandigarh High Court. The fate of 3500 regularly promoted JTOs (Departmental) and remaining officiating JTOs depends on the outcome of court judgment. He further advised that applicants and aggrieved JTOs can sit together and resolve the issue.

(c) Regarding implementation of 78.2% fitment benefit and revision of Transport allowance Sr. GM (Estt.) further mentioned that these issues can be resolved in case BSNL makes profit. He impressed upon that Unions/Associations should educate their members for earning the profit. We mentioned that we have been appealing our member to concentrate more for the growth of BSNL and to provide quality service but BSNL Management is laviously spending money on tours, meetings, vehicles and giving maximum facilities to JAG and above level officers e.g. Free Blackberry instruments, 3G, IPTV, Laptops, MBA courses on BSNLs costs etc. No austerity measures are observed in BSNL and  missing of leadership are the main reasons which are adversely affecting the viability of BSNL.

(c) Retention of DEs on promotion to their parent Circles:- We requested to retain DEs on promotion to their parent Circles by creating additional DEs posts in new services viz. Karnataka, TN, Chennai TD and STR Circles where DEs vacant posts are not available. CMD mentioned that at this juncture no additional DEs posts can be created, hence SDEs on promotion to DE are to go to other Circles only where the vacancies are available. He advised that people should not waste time in waiting for retention. We further pleaded for modification of posting order to nearby Circles wherever the DEs vacancies are available. He accepted the request and advised to submit such cases.
