Hon'ble High Court Kerala dismissed BSNL's appeal in this case and thereafter BSNL Corporate Office got transferred all the cases in Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi [ OA no. 777/2010 between BSNL V/s AIBSNLEA] . AIBSNLEA continues to pursue in the Hon'ble PB CAT and now Hon'ble PBCAT New Delhi declared that the restriction on age and qualification for internal candidates in the MT RR is arbitrary and discriminatory and directed the BSNL Management  to revise the MTRR accordingly.

Hon'ble PB CAT  also directed that the ongoing MT recruitment process should be completed as per the interim direction given by the Hon'ble  CAT Ernakulam  (i.e.) without age and qualification restriction as per the prayer filed by AIBSNLEA.

This is a great victory for the stand taken by this Association, that the restriction of age and qualification in MT RR is discriminatory and the same is now vindicated by this judgement.

This Association is fighting this case along with SNEA(I) in  Hon'ble PB CAT, New Delhi.

20.01.2013: Editorial TELEWAVE - JAN'2013 Edition:

BSNL Managements' INDIFFERENT ATTITUDE TOWARDS EXECUTIVES WILL ADVERSELY AFFECT ITs VIABILITY

BSNL Management for the last one year is opting to confront with its fifty thousand executives. The difference between the executives and the deputationist lead BSNL Management was getting wider and wider over the last one year mainly on the issue of repatriation of non-optee ITS officers as per DOT & Court order. The executives under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executives' Associations have been strongly opposing the decision of the management to recruit DGMs and Management Trainees from outside and not allowing existing executives to get promoted against BSNL's JAG/SAG/HAG level posts. In the month Feb'2012, United Forum of BSNL Executives' Associations launched agitation programmes and thereafter a written assurance was given by the BSNL Management to constitute a committee comprising BSNL Officers and the representatives of the Executives Associations to submit recommendation for the implementation of CPSU Cadre hierarchy, finalization of E1A, E2A IDA pay scales and the repercations on the promotion avenues of SDEs/DEs on upgradation of 600 DGM to Sr. DGM posts etc. The Committee Headed by PGM(SR) could met only thrice during last one year. The executives Associations unanimously drafted and submitted a proposal on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy to the official side three months before but the Committee meeting is not being conducted to resolve the issues with negligent attitude. United Forum has already apprised the developments on this issue to the Director (HR) as well as CMD, BSNL but they also remain silent on this issue. It reflects the indifferent attitude of the BSNL Management in solving the legitimate issues of BSNL Executives.

All the PSUs converted from Govt. department or created have their own CPSU cadre hierarchy wherein the Basic entry level is only in the E2 IDA pay scale, nowhere the recruitment at E4 or E6 grades are being made but in BSNL ITS dominated management having government mindset wants to continue with Government legacy just to ensure that BSNL absorbed and recruited executives do not get any benefit of CPSU cadre hierarchy. BSNL Management is only concerned to safeguard the interest of ITS Officers working on deputation in BSNL by giving them uninterrupted promotions against BSNL Posts and all the benefits of 6th CPC ignoring the viability of BSNL.   

DPE vide OM No. 2(12)/2009-DPE(WC), Govt. Of India has clarified that each CPSEs can only adopt and recruit executives to the 10 grades (E0 to E9) provided in the DPE guidelines. The grade and corresponding scale of pay cannot be altered by the CPSEs. Appropriate nomenclature for these Grades as per the standard practice of the CPSEs may be followed. Whereas, BSNL Management is determine to continue with intermediate IDA pay scales i.e. E1A and E2A ignoring the DPE guidelines. It also reflects the indifferent mindset of the management. 

Similarly, BSNL Management on the basis of existing BSNL MSRRs is not holding CPCs to fill up the vacant Group -'B', STS/JAG level posts. Hence, a large number of DGMs/ DEs / SDEs(T) posts [i.e. about 500 DGMs, 2000 DEs and 3500 SDEs(T)] are lying vacant for the last 2-3 years but these posts are not being filled up on one or the other pretext. Already there is acute stagnation in the career prospects of JTOs/SDEs/DEs in BSNL. One JTO recruitment in year-1994, after 16 years of JTO service is waiting for his first regular promotion of SDE(T). One SDE of 1994 year's DPC promoted is waiting his DE promotion after 18 years of service and one DE promoted in the year -2006 is waiting his DGM promotion. This fact is well known to the BSNL Management but the BSNL Management is continuing the efforts that how these BSNL absorbed JTOs/SDEs/DEs are made frustrated. The recent decision of the BSNL Management Committee is the glaring example of the indifferent attitude wherein the utilization of 1100 vacant MT quota posts of DEs are not allowed for DE adhoc promotion as per the provisions of BSNL MSRRs.

BSNL Management Committee decision not to allow adhoc/local officiating promotions will certainly adversely affect the career prospects of the JTOs/SDEs/DEs and it will also affect the smooth functioning of the field units of BSNL. It seems that BSNL Management in a calculative way is moving to frustrate the BSNL absorbed executives ignoring the BSNL's viability. During discussions, BSNL Management is pleading that vacant DGMs/DEs/SDEs(T) posts can't be filled up due to pending court cases. But the fact remains that most of the court cases are the outcome of DOT administration's and BSNL Management's wrong policies. Today, if, the BSNL Management is really inclined to fill up the vacant DGMs/DEs/SDEs(T) posts, these posts can easily be filled up subject to outcome of the court cases as happened on earlier occasions when the BSNL Management desired to fill up the vacant DGMs/DEs/SDEs(T) posts.

The Senior Executives are drawing less salary than their juniors on implementation of EPP. United Forum has been requesting to remove the pay anomaly of seniors w.r.t. their juniors by allowing stepping of pay and antedating of DNI. Hon'ble CAT Ernakulum has given the judgment to allow stepping of pay of seniors w.r.t. their juniors which is upheld  by Hon'ble  Kerala High Court against that BSNL Management has filed SLP in the Hon'ble APEX Court. Two Committees in this regard were constituted to resolve the issues but they also gave negative recommendations, which reflects the total indifferent attitude of BSNL Management .

We understand that the BSNL management will appreciate the concern of BSNL Executives in resolving the above mentioned legitimate issues at the earliest and the Committees will also submit their recommendations at the earliest. Any further delay in settlement of these issues will force United Forum to resume its deferred agitation programme shortly. Let there be a no reservation to join hands. Let all the executives unite and get ready for a decisive struggle, which may have to be launched at any moment.
