GS and President had a meeting with Sr.GM ( CA/ERP-FICO) Shri.Surajit Mandal and shared the sincere greetings of AIBSNLEA CHQ to him in causing to open a window in ESS Portal to exercise the EPF Higher Pension Option for the eligible BSNL employees . AIBSNLEA requested to extend the window period for exercising the options from 31st Jan 2023 to at least a week time as the window is just opened today the 30th Jan 2023 and just two days are insufficient for completing the whole process especially in the backdrop of the fact that some of the employees’ data are to be updated in ERP after the latest promotion, transfer and postings. We further requested to publish one joint option form, if possible, with all the relevant details so that the eligible employees can fill it up and upload the details. This will coverup the missing nomenclature updates of employees in ERP and also help to submit the Option form timely to EPFO . Sr.GM ( CA/ERP-FICO) had a patient listening of our suggestions and appreciated AIBSNLEA in sharing the feedback and concerns in relation with the ESS window.

Sr.GM ( CA/ERP-FICO) shared that a new option form is under preparation and suggested AIBSNLEA to input any modifications. Sr.GM (CA/ERP-FICO) considered the submissions of AIBSNLEA in finalising the Joint Option Form and demonstrated the ways of entering the details through Online Portal . Sr GM informed that one intranet link will be opened for the retired employees for the online submission of their option through OTP based authentication . After some more discussion Sr.GM ( CA/ERP-FICO) assured that the Joint option form with all the relevant details will be published today itself in Intranet .

This is very enthusiastic to report that around 7.30 PM , Sr.GM ( CA/ERP-FICO) informed from his office to AIBSNLEA CHQ that the letter is updated in intranet for the early submission of the Joint Option Form from all the eligible employees in BSNL without waiting for the last date of submission , the 10th Feb-2023. AIBSNLEA reciprocated thanks to Sr.GM.

AIBSNLEA CHQ request all the eligible executives to submit the Joint Option form duly filled in this week itself so that by Next Week BSNL can submit the same to the EPFO for further processing.

Notification of MSRRs 2023:

As the matter of MSRR has already been taken up by the Forum of Associations of BSNL comprising AIBSNLEA/AIGETOA/SNEA/SEWA/TOA, so much discussion was not there on it and the forum would take up this further.

Posting of 45 officers in JAG grade to BSNL from DOT:

AIBSNLEA shared our concern in the posting of the 45 officers in JAG grade to BSNL from DOT. As per the DOT letter No 12-2/2022-STG-I-Part (2) dated 31.12.2023, it is learned that 82 officers are promoted in JAG of ITS Group “A” by DOT and out of them 45 officers are deputed in BSNL out of which 22 officers were recruited in DOT era in recruitment years 1991 to 1997 as JTO similar to many other officers recruited by DOT and subsequently absorbed in BSNL. At the time absorption in BSNL all have been offered to opt for BSNL by DOT/BSNL Management, but they denied to take absorption in BSNL and opted DOT. Now these officers are promoted as regular JAG and posted in BSNL. We also shared that this Association is going on receiving grievances from our senior executives on this posting that though the absorbed employees are still working in the AGM grade only. AIBSNLEA further requested to consider the posting of these JAG officers in BSNL against DR DGM quota only and all the eligible AGMs/DGM(Adhoc) in BSNL should immediately be promoted to the grade of regular DGM since sufficient vacancies are available to avoid any heartburning and Humiliation of the existing executives.

Much delayed 3rd PRC for BSNL Employees:

AIBSNLEA requested to consider the much delayed and long-awaited 3rd PRC for the BSNL employees as BSNL has the EBIDTA positive for the last 2 consecutive years and reportedly BSNL may touch operating profit for this FY-2022-23. For the Last FY 2021-22, the BSNL total Income was Rs.19053 Crores and total expenditure (exclude interest & dep.) was of Rs.18109 Crore thus EBIDTA Positive by Rs.944 Crore but there was a Net Loss for the year by Rs.6982 Crores. This year BSNL received much financial packages from GOI as part of 2nd revival package including the Viability Gap funding of Rs.13789 Crores for operating the commercially unviable rural wireline operation done by BSNL. CMD BSNL replied that BSNL has to pay for the 2G spectrum licence fee to DOT may increase our expenditure for this FY 2023. DIR(HR), was also present on the meeting, has informed that the revenue from BSNL operations is not getting increased is a concern for BSNL. AIBSNLEA requested to consider immediately the 3rd PRC for BSNL employees since it is due from 01.01.2017 and more than 6 years have already been elapsed. CMD BSNL mentioned that we will look into it after the Financial Results of the FY 2022-23.  

Due to some urgent meeting called for CMD BSNL, we could not discuss on other pending points. These pending points will be discussed in the next Meeting with CMD BSNL.

10.01.2023     Today, the 10th Jan 2023, the GS Com Shaji V and the President Com Rajpal Sharma had an emergency meeting with CMD BSNL Shri PK Purwar ji and discussed the following matter

Long Pending AO - CAO Court Case at Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh regarding Status-quo on AO to CAO promotions (OA No 1435/ 2018 )

AIBSNLEA Shared our sincere gratitude to CMD BSNL for causing to arrange an eminent Sr. Advocate from the Hon. Supreme Court of India to deal the case at the CAT Chandigarh as promised by CMD to this Association. We further appraised CMD on the heartburn of the affected executives due to the case. When all pending promotions in all streams are almost completely released by BSNL management, but the long-lasting blockage of the Status-quo called by the Hon. CAT Chandigarh could not be vacated is a painful matter of real concern to AIBSNLEA. More discussions on the Case and related matters happened with CMD for around half an hour since the AIBSNLEA CHQ team and CS AIBSNLEA Punjab had been very much available in the CAT Chandigarh all along the arguments of the Case.  CMD BSNL had a patient hearing on all our points and appals.

Further, CMD BSNL shared that CMD is ready to have a conference call with the Lawyer and AIBSNLEA to update all the relevant points to vacate the stay and whatever be the amount to be paid for that BSNL will pay additionally to the Lawyer , if required. AIBSNLEA extended whole hearted thanks and regards to CMD for his very sincere approach for getting way to give the very long pending promotion orders for the executives in Accounts fraternity. CMD BSNL replied that he is also equally or more worried on this pending promotion.
