CGHS office at Jaipur says it should be 2071 as per DoT & their CGHS HQ Circulars. The CCA Telecom Jaipur also wrote a letter Addl. Director, CGHS Jaipur mentioning that A/C Head 3225 has been changed to 2071 & they didn't accept the application form of the applicants and has sought permission their HQ, New Delhi. Similarly many BSNL pensioners PPOs are not mentioning debiting A/C Head.

DDG(Estt.) & Director(Estt.), DoT assured to take up the matter with CGHS authority at HQ New Delhi for issuing necessary instructions to Rajasthan Circle CGHS Authority.

05.12.2018:  Revision of Pension of BSNL's Pensioners: DDG(Estt.) DoT confirmed that a proposal for delinking of pension revision of BSNL Pensioners from the pay revision of BSNL employees has been sent to DoP&PW for comments/Policy. He advised to pursue in DoP&PW for early reply to DoT.

Sanjay Wadhavan& discussed regarding DoT proposal for delinking of pension revision of BSNL Pensioner from the pay revision of BSNL employees. Dy.

After detail discussion Dy. Secretary, DoP&PW assured that he will process the case to higher up's and after the approval it will send to DoT. He also mentioned that in case DoT has recommended delinking of pension revision they may not have objections. He assured that reply may be given to DoT within 2-3 weeks of time.

04.12.2018:  The indefinite strike from 03.12.2018 has been deferred till further intimation by AUAB - After meeting held with Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) on 03.12.2018. 

a.  4G Spectrum Allocation to BSNL: Non-allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL has been a major handicap for BSNL growth. The assurance given by the Hon'ble MoS(C) in this regard in 24th Feb., 2018, was not implemented. In yesterday's meeting, the Hon'ble MoS(C) intimated that the Cabinet Note on the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL is already circulated to the other ministries for comments. He also assured to depute a senior officer of the DoT to those nodal ministries to quicken the process. Once this process is completed, the Hon'ble MoS(C) assured to take up this issue in the next Cabinet meeting itself. It is assured now that BSNL is going to get 4G spectrum shortly. This is a major break through in the financial revival of BSNL, and undoubtedly a very big achievement of the AUAB.

b.  Pension revision of  BSNL Pensioners: So far, the DoT has been linking pension revision of BSNL pensioners  with the pay revision of the BSNL employees. They have taken a firm stand that pension revision could be done only when pay revision is done to the serving employees. However, in the meeting held with the Secretary(T), DoT on 02.12.2018, and also in the meeting with the Hon'ble MoS(C) on 03.12.2018, the AUAB is informed that pension revision of the retirees is now delinked from the pay revision of the employees and the matter has been send to DoP&PW for consideration. This is a very big achievement of this strike call. AUAB will continue to take all out efforts to ensure that the revision of pension is done at the earliest.

c. Implementation of government rules in the payment of pension contribution by BSNL: The Hon'ble MoS(C) categorically told that government rule will be implemented, according to which BSNL has to pay pension contribution, based on actual basic pay. A letter has already been gone to the finance ministry, with the recommendation of the DoT. Settlement of this issue, is also a boost for the financial revival of BSNL.    

d.  Left out issues of the 2nd PRC: The BSNL Management has long been demanding that Management should fulfil the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, that 30% of the pay should be contributed by the Management towards superannuation benefits of the Directly Recruited employees. On this issue, the CMD BSNL has assured, in the meeting held with him on 02.12.2018, that BSNL's contribution towards pension contribution will be increased by another 3%, by March, 2019, and the remaining will be increased thereafter in one go. Thus, the non-implementation of the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, in respect of superannuation benefits is also resolved.   

In addition to this, GS AIBSNLEA requested for the revision of Pay scales E-1 by E-2, E-2 by E-3 and upgradation of subsequent pay scales E-3 by E-4, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 as per the BSNL C.O letters addressed to Jt.Secretary (Admin), DoT vide No.1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 6.6.2016 <<<<Click here for letter>>> and vide Letter No. 1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 12.06.2017 <<<<Click here for letter>>>; Hon'ble MoS(C) directed DoT officers for consideration.

e.  3rd Pay Revision of employees: No final settlement is reached in respect of the 3rd Pay Revision of the employees. It was told in the discussion by the Hon'ble MoS(C) as well as by the Secretary(T), DoT, that pay revision of the employees would be done, but 15% fitment cannot be given. The AUAB representatives gave a detailed presentation to the Hon'ble MoS(C), justifying pay revision with 15% fitment. However, it was not accepted. The AUAB feels that this issue needs to be further persued with the DoT, for which some more time needs to be given.

DoT is constituting a committee of comprising officers of DoT/BSNL and the representatives of AUAB to meet fortnightly  to have a follow-up action on the above issues.

The leaders of the AUAB, in the meeting held after talks with the Hon'ble MoS(C), appreciated the fact that the strike call has brought major achievements to the BSNL employees, and that these achievements have got to be consolidated, by way of implementation of the assurances / issuing of letters. As regards the wage revision is concerned, the AUAB has decided to give some more time to the DoT to sort out the matter. However, struggles become inevitable, if the persuasions of the AUAB fail.

20.11.2018:  Meeting with Director(HR), BSNL Board:

GS, President, AGS(Fin.) & AGS(DR) met Director(HR), BSNL Board & requested for issuing the promotion order from AO to CAO. Director(HR) mentioned that yesterday evening Sr. GM(Admin) with the comments of CLO has submitted the file to her good office. Now the proposal submitted by Sr. GM(FP) has been examined and some corrections are suggested to Sr. GM(FP), which will be replied today itself and thereafter promotion orders from AO to CAO will be issued. Thereafter Director(HR) called Sr. GM(FP), GM(Pers.) & CLO to issue the promotion orders after making some corrections in the draft proposal of CPC minutes.

We further requested that now the promotion orders should not be delayed on one pretext or the other. Our members are seriously frustrated & agitated due to abnormal delay in issuing the promotion orders from AO to CAO. We expressed our concern that in the month of June-2018, AO to CAO promotions could not be issued because of the pending stay order. The stay order was vacated two months before but the promotion orders are not issued to fill up even the vacant CAO posts are available. The earlier proposal to upgrade 1200 CAO posts and utilization of 336 MT quota posts was not considered, it has caused serious frustration & resentment among the members of AIBSNLEA. Director(HR) appreciated our concern & assured to issue promotion orders from AO to CAO against the vacant CAO posts.  We are expecting promotion orders from AO to CAO will be issued shortly.

(b) CAO to DGM(Fin.) promotion orders: We requested to issue CAO to DGM(Fin.) promotion orders as the file was approved by CMD BSNL three-four days before. Director(HR) confirmed that CMD approval has been received & the promotion order of 17 nos. CAO to DGM(Fin.) will be issued shortly.

08.11.2018:  AIBSNLEA Kerala Circle submitted their views on Revival of BSNL on 02nd Nov., 2018 to IIM Ahmadabad  engaged by DOT :

AIBSNLEA Kerala was called for submitting their views on Revival of BSNL by the team IIM Ahmadabad engaged by DOT for submitting revival plan for BSNL on 02-11-2018. The IIM Team Comprise of Madam Prof: Rekha Jain, Prof:  Ajay Pandey,  Prof:Vishal Guptha and Shri.Miheer Agnihothri.

Circle Secretary, Kerala Circle  Com V. Shaji, CEC Member TVM Com.Rajan and ADS CO Branch Com. Sherafudeen were from AIBSNLEA Side. Shri. Robin Poddar GM(A/HR) and Shri. Satheesh Jt GM were there as BSNL Management representatives.

AIBSNLEA got the first opportunity to submit  their views. They submitted all the relevant points to the IIM team for the revival of BSNL in a very delightful way. Total interaction was there from all team members  on all our suggestions and all points were noted after amiable discussions.  Our presentation and discussions were lasted for one hour.

AIBSNLEA clearly emphasized that allotment of 4G spectrum and award of 3rd PRC to BSNL employees with 15% benefits will be the two pillars to fix the first stepping stone for the revival of BSNL. While submitting our view for no recommendation for VRS / CRS, committee sought clarification. As of now BSNL suffering to meet funds for disbursing salary, now how can we expect a good VRS package from BSNL employees ?, we replied. We further replied to the comment , if DOT give money for VRS package?, DOT must pump capital for constructive activities of BSNL like 3rd PRC and 4G spectrum not destructive  activities like CRS/VRS. While asking why are we against non-absorption in BSNL, we submitted that BSNL has very talented officers including absorbed ITS/IES and absorbed officers  in Finance department burning for getting timely  salary at least , the non absorbers simply enjoying facilities of BSNL  those are barred for others, along  with 7th CPC benefits. In addition, they are blocking promotion avenues of absorbed officers by occupying higher posts.  

We discontent another association's suggestion that training only motivate employees than 3rd PRC. Though training will definitely motivate employees, the need of the time is 3rd PRC and 4G   spectrum. 

AIBSNLEA Kerala Circle submitted our suggestions in mail to the Team IIM........<<<Click here AIBSNLEA Kerala Circle suggestions for BSNL's Revival>>

26.10.2018:  AIBSNLEA efforts in achieving 30% Superannuation benefit for the BSNL recruited  employees :- AIBSNLEA along with other unions and associations strongly demanded 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited executives as per the recommendations of 2nd PRC. BSNL was giving  18% superannuation benefit  in terms of gratuity, EPF and Medical benefit etc., to BSNL recruited employees. The pension through EPF is a meager amount to DR employees  in comparison to BSNL absorbed employees Pensionary benefit  as per the CCS(CCA)Rules.1972.The EPF contribution of DR employees was also settled by the  vigorous  pursuance of AIBSNLEA  in the year 2004-2005 and persuaded to Provident fund authorities for making it transparent and online assessed. To achieve 30% superannuation benefit AIBSNLEA continued  its efforts initially in BSNL C.O. Establishment cell where the GM(Estt.) was accepting only 1% contribution which  was not agreed by us and on our demand  a committee headed by Smt Geeta Rao the then ED(Finance )was constituted to whom AIBSNLEA pleaded for 12% remaining superannuation  benefit and the committee recommended 3% contribution. In the month of May-June 2016 AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations launched the agitation programme and got achieved 3% contribution from BSNL in superannuation benefit. However, AIBSNLEA continued its efforts to increase it upto 12% and management further considered to increase 2% and total now 5%.AIBSNLEA efforts will continue to achieve 12% contribution to achieve 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees.  .

E2 and E3 standard Pay scales  to JTO and SDE equivalent executives :   

After the 2nd PRC recommendations notified in March -2009,AIBSNLEA demanded standard Pay Scales E2 and E3 to JTO and SDE equivalent executives. And got rectified the Pay anomaly from the Sh. K.C.G.K. Pillai, the then PGM(FP) committee report by giving 5-advance increments in the  revised Pay Scale after 2nd PRC implementation which removed the pay anomaly of JTO/JAO. Initially issue of granting intermediary pay scales E1-A and E2-A to JTO and SDE equivalent executives was sent to DOT/DPE by BSNL but DPE denied to grant intermediately pay scales, these intermediary  pay scale effort was made by BSNL but all the time DPE disagreed BSNL proposal. In view of the DPE denial of intermediately Pay scales AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA demanded the standard pay scales E-2 and E-3 to JTO and SDE equivalent executives and subsequent upgradation of E-3 to E-4,E-4 to E-5, E-5 to E-6 and E-6 by E-7. Accordingly on 06.06.2016 BSNL management sent proposal to DOT recommending replacement of E1-A by E-2, E-2A by E-3 and upgradation of subsequent pay scales of E-3 by E-4,E-4 by E-5 , E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7.This proposal was in  active consideration of  DOT. But after the membership verification of Executive Association in Dec.2016 Majority Association  mounted the pressure on BSNL management to limit the proposal up to the replacement of E1-A by E-2 and E-2A by E-3 only. BSNL Management further send a revised proposal to  DOT limiting replacement of Pay scales E1-A by E-2 and E-2A by E-3 and the subsequent upgradation of  E-3 by E-4,E-4 by E-5 , E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 may be considered at the time of implementation of 3rd PRC. This kind of modification was not appreciated by DOT and they categorically mentioned that in case E1A and E2A are replaced by E2 and E3 Pay scales leaving aside the upgradation of subsequent pay scales will invite litigation and  not logical. In view of this DOT Administration decided to downgrade the E1A by E1 and E2A by E2 standard scales and issued the Presidential orders. In a systematic manner the issue was killed by the so called Majority Association. However, AIBSNLEA will continue its efforts to get replaced E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 and subsequent upgradation of E-3 by E-4,E-4 by E-5 , E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 .

24.10.2018:  Meeting with GM (Pers)

24.10.2018:   AIBSNLEA efforts in getting released about 13000 executives promotion orders through CPCs before implementation of proposed CPSU Cadre hierarchy :

After the Membership verification AIBSNLEA was granted the 2nd Majority Association status and later support Association. Even after winning in the 17 Circles and losing in 14 Circles, AIBSNLEA was granted support Association status on the basis of total votes secured. Against this AIBSNLEA filed a case in the Hon'ble High Court Allahabad which is still pending for decision. After the referendum the so called Majority Association impressed upon the Management that they should only be discussed all the issues no other Association should be heard or allow to function. This created great disunity among the executives and Management very successfully divided the executives to their convenience. So called majority Association instead of killing of other Associations should have taken efforts with all Associations to bring them together on the common issues for the betterment of executive cadres but they avoided this.

Present Status of promotions through CPCs & CPSU CH:  In view of the Court cases on TES Group “B' seniority the promotions were held up. To overcome with this situation AIBSNLEA proposed to implement CPSU cadre hierarchy  in the year 2012 and to achieve this AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA launched agitation programs in February 2013 under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations and thereafter a Committee headed by the then  PGM (FP) Shri S.R. Kapoor was constituted to discuss the matter. AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA were the members of the committee. But due to serious difference of opinion between the staff side and management side members of the committee could not submit the report.

Again second time the then PGM (SR) Shri N.K. Narang was made the Chairman of the committee but this Committee also failed to submit the report. In the year -2015 after the Joining of New CMD Shri Anupam Shrivastava the matter was further raised and he was kind enough to further reconstitute the Committee headed by the Shri. M.A .Khan the then ED (NB), GM (Estt.) and GM (EF) were official side members and AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA were the staff side members. After marathon meetings Mr. Khan Committee submitted its recommendations. AIBSNLEA constantly persuaded for the implementation of Khan Committee recommendations but meanwhile BSNL Management started the MV process of Executive Association which derail the process. Pers. Cell BSNL C.O. was not at all interested to implement Khan Committee report on CPSU Cadre hierarchy and ignored the views of  other Executive Associations and in collusion with so called majority Association diluted the Khan Committee report and tried to limit functional  promotions up to Sr. SDE level only etc. Against this dilution AIBSNLEA strongly protested   with CMD BSNL, Director (HR) and they appreciated the concern of AIBSNLEA and directed PGM (Pers.) to discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA wherein AIBSNLEA demanded Khan committee implementation in the true sense i.e.

  • Functional promotions up to AGM level, 

  • E-5 Grade AGMs to be designated Jt. DGM 

  • Selection on the basis of  numerical benchmarks,

  • Reduction of residency period from SDE/ AO to DE/CAO from 12 years to 5  years,

  • Date of effect from the last DPC conducted and ;

  • SC/ST roaster implementation as per DoP & T guidelines 

  • No functional Post of Sr SDE/Sr AO

  • No MT recruitment beyond JTO /JAO cadre etc.

PGM (Pers.) after detailed discussions incorporated  some suggestions of AIBSNLEA  i.e. functional promotion up to AGM level, Jt. DGM designation E-5 grade AGMs and bench marks on numerical basis etc. This got approved by the MC and thereafter BSNL Board.

AIBSNLEA persuaded up to level of JS (Admin), DoT cum Govt. Nominee Director in BSNL Board for improvement in Draft CPSU instead of the implementation of half cooked policy with severe Bottlenecks . which yielded result as Board while giving approval to CPSU cadre hierarchy directed to complete the ongoing CPCs before implementation of CPSU CH.

BSNL Board approved the CPSU Cadre hierarchy with date effect from its date of notification i.e. prospective date. It created path hole in CPSU Cadre hierarchy concept and most of the existing executives are not benefited with this policy. However, knowing this fact AIBSNLEA convince the BSNL Management to held CPCs to promote all the eligible executives to the next grade on functional basis before implementation of the CPSU Cadre hierarchy. BSNL Management appreciated AIBSNLEA concern and conducted CPCs in all the cadres and promoted about 13000 executives to the next higher grade on functional basis. This could not be tolerated by the so called majority Association and they protested against holding of CPCs and demanded to implement CPSU cadre hierarchy only. But they failed and to create a road block and they demanded parity among all the cadres which was not immediately possible as in all the Cadre there was difference from DoT legacy.  To stall the process of CPCs filed contempt cases against CMD and Director (HR) for issuing promotions. It frustrated the Management and finally all the promotions through CPCs are stalled. AIBSNLEA is still trying that as soon as the contempt cases are settled promotions should be made available through CPCs immediately to benefit the executives' monitory and status. Now so called majority Association is claiming that due to their pressure on CPSU Cadre hierarchy, CPCs has taken place which is beyond truth.

23.10.2018:   Meeting with DDG (Estt)   DOT:

GS & President met DDG (Estt), DOT and discussed regarding

A) Pension Revision: We requested the DDG (Estt), DOT for the Pension Revision of BSNL Pensioners by delinking the Pay Revision as the Pension of BSNL Pensioners is also being paid under CCS (CCA) Pension Rules 1972 as Govt. Pension. DDG (Estt) mentioned that the BSNL Pensioners Pension is being paid as per the CCS (CCA) Pension Rules 1972 but there is no mention about the Pension Revision. Govt.
