Meeting of the Forum with the CMD on 22nd July 2013

The Forum leaders met Shri R.K. Upadhyay, CMD, BSNL on 22nd July 2013 and discussed the following issues regarding the expansion, customer services etc:
1. Maintenance of BTS:
The Forum leaders pointed out that a good number of BTS are not either functioning or are having difficulties of power connection / shortage of diesel etc. There is much delay in repairing fault. This is adversely affecting the services. CMD assured that action is being taken in this matter.
2. Disposal of scraps:
The Forum pointed that despite corporate office instructions, the scrap materials have not been disposed. BSNL will be getting Crores of rupees in each SSA if the scraps are sold, which will also keep the stores and premises clean. CMD agreed to issue suitable instructions in the matter.
3. Renting, Leasing of vacant quarters / office buildings /training institutes etc:
The Unions wanted that the vacant quarters / offices be rented to Central Govt./State government/PSUs so that some revenue can be earned. In the same way, the training institutes can also be rented for training purposes government establishments etc. This is being done to a certain extent at present which can be extended to other places.
4. Telecom Factories:
The Forum demanded that the Telecom Factories be modernized, new engineers recruited and new items introduced for manufacturing. Thousands of towers are manufactured and available in Telecom factories, but in some SSAs, the same are purchased from outside. It should be ensured that the towers should be purchased from TFs only.
It was also suggested that the production of drop-wire should be increased, since there is shortage at present. New products should be manufactured.
5. Marketing to be expanded:
The Forum stated that putting more executives and non-executives in the Marketing section will be necessary.
6. Procurement of equipment:
The unions pointed that despite supply of some cable, there is still acute shortage. CMD informed that tender for more cables are in the process and will be finalized quickly. BSNL is making all efforts for the utilisation of the Europe- India Gateway under-sea cables by negotiating with the other companies on the issue of making available the platform at Mumbai.
7. Regular meetings of Works Committee:
Though instructions have been issued one year back to form Works Committees in all the SSAs with the participations of the representatives of the unions, it has not been implemented. The works committees should start functioning immediately, where discussion can take place and decision taken on the expansion and improvement of services. CMD was positive on this issue.
Both the CMD and the Forum agreed that similar meetings will be much helpful in improving the financial viability and service of BSNL.

19.07.2013:Congratulations! Promotion orders of 1587 DEs are issued: AIBSNLEA consistent and untiring efforts yielded result in getting released the posting on promotion order from SDE(T) to 1587 DEs on  Adhoc basis   (OC=1240, SC=249, ST=98). AIBSNLEA has also ensured the proper implementation of SC/ST roaster.

The CPC is conducted to fill up 1860 DEs Posts (OC =1445, SC= 293, ST= 122). But  273  DEs posts  could not be filled up  as in OC category 156(137 shield cover cases + 19 from 147)  , SC category  44 (42 un accessed + 2 of 147), ST category  24(24 un accessed + 0 of 147) and some with misc. reasons.

The last promotion orders from SDE (T) to DE Adhoc were issued in June & July, 2010 of 2700 DEs, thereafter, we continuously tried to get filled up the vacant DEs posts. BSNL Management initially agreed to fill up 760 DEs posts of seniority - cum -fitness  quota and initiated the CPC process but meanwhile we continued our efforts to fill up MT Quota posts from  SDEs(T) to DE on adhoc basis as per BSNL MSRRs provisions. Finally, CMD BSNL and BSNL Management Committee allowed  to utilize 1100 MT quota posts. After this, BSNL C.O. Pers. Cell started CPC process to fill up 1860 DEs posts. We tried our level best through our Circle Secretaries to get collected the ACRs/VCRs of eligible SDEs and finally got completed. During the period so many court cases took place and stay order was granted in the Hon'ble CAT Chennai wherein we got impleaded and finally  stay was vacated. Further attempts were made to stall CPC by some individuals but could not succeed and finally today, the promotion order is issued. About 273 SDEs are yet to be promoted against remaining vacant posts of 1860 DEs shortly . We will try our best to get collected the missing ACRs /VCRs and will ensure that left out promotions orders are issued shortly .

About 450 DEs on promotion have been given out posting due to non availability of vacant DEs posts  in their Parent Circles like KTK,CHTD,STR,TN, UP(E) & Inspection Circle etc. All the postings have been made to equalize the shortage in Circles. All newly promoted DEs are requested to join their new assignment immediately to avoid stalemate due to litigations .Moreover , these promotion orders have been issued after three years of the last  CPCs in the Year 2010.Due to litigations further CPCs may be delayed with old experience.

At the outset, we extend our sincere gratitude and thanks to CMD BSNL , Director(HR), Sr. GM (Pers.), CVO, GM(SR), CLO, Concerned AGMs and all the staff members of Pers. Cell ,Vigilance Cell  etc. for their prompt, positive and helping attitude in issuing the promotion orders. The Pers cell  staff untiring efforts  day and night in completing the CPC process and issuing posting on promotions orders on fast track method are  highly appreciable .

19.07.2013:   CPC from SDE(T) to DE completed. Promotion orders expected shortly : It is understood that CPC to Fill up 1860 DEs post  has been completed today and after the the approval of CMD, BSNL orders may be issued shortly. About 1590 DEs posts are expected to be filled up immediately. Details will be given after issuance of the orders.

Decisions taken in the meeting of the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations held on 17th July 2013.

A meeting of the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations was held on 17th July 2013 at BSNLMS Office. Com. Rajmouli, NFTE, presided. Com. V.A.N. Namboodiri, Convener, reported about the developments after the last meeting and also briefed on the agenda. After detailed discussions, the following decisions were taken:

1.  Protest against FDI increase in telecom :The meeting expressed its strong protest against the government's decision to increase the FDI in telecom sector from 74% to 100% and defense sector from 26% to 49%. These are two sectors connected with national security and the present decision compromises security concerns of the nation. The unlimited FDI funds to private companies will adversely affect the growth of BSNL and MTNL. Immediately on hearing the proposal for increase in FDI in telecom, the Forum had given call for lunch hour demonstration on 9th July, which was well organised. The Forum decided to organise Badge wearing and Demonstration  on 25th July protesting against the decision to increase FDI in Telecom and defense sectors and demanding that the decision be dropped forthwith. The following will be the slogan on the Badge:

DROP DECISION TO INCREASE FDI IN TELECOM AND DEFENSE

 2.  All India convention on 3rd August 2013 :The Mavlankar Hall has been booked for the convention.  Senior Trade Union leaders who are also Members of parliament have been invited to address the convention. Food packets will be supplied to the participants. Poster will be designed and put in the unions' websites. The circles/SSAs should print and supply. 1000 posters will be printed for Delhi.

 All the unions should donate at least Rs. 5,000. Major unions should contribute more as agreed in the meeting.  They should give an advance of Rs. 10,000 in addition to the amount already paid.

 3.   Closure of Telegram Services :Despite strong protest by the Forum, the management has closed the telegram services. The meeting expressed its protest against the closure. A  PIL petition is pending in the Chennai High Court in which BSNLEU has also applied for getting impleaded. Though the booking of telegrams is stopped, due to the court case, the system and connections continue as it is.

4.   78.2% IDA pay fixation and connected issues: Though the order for payment of 78.2% IDA  pay fixation has been issued, the following issues remain to be settled.

a)  Orders for pre-2007 and post -  2007 pensioners are yet to be issued.

b)  Many allowances are granted at 68.8% IDA only, though the agreement between the BSNL Management and Forum did not have such a condition.

c)  Thousands of officials in the lowest pay scales will not get the benefit of 78.2% IDA pay fixation, since they have already reached the maximum of the scale and is stagnating.

d)  The question of notional pension has to be examined.

e)   There was no agreement with the Forum regarding arrears, except that it will be paid when the financial position improves. But this is not specifically mentioned.\

All these issues are to be taken with the management. A meeting may be arranged with the CMD, preferably this week itself.

The other items in the agenda viz. Grant of allowances to the executives and Non-executives as in the case of ITS officers ordered now and Retirement benefits to BSNL recruited employees will be discussed in the Core Committee meeting to be held at 04.00 PM on 18th July at National Council Office, Room.

All the Circle/Branch Secretaries are requested to give their comments/suggestions on the  issues related to provision of superannuation benefits to directly recruited employees.

17.07.2013: Regarding regularisation of officiating JTOs:: It is reported that, the Hon'ble High Court of Punjab & Haryana at Chandigarh  was pleased  enough to close the Contempt of Court case COCP 1431/2008 against CMD BSNL & others filed by some petitioners in WPC 5608/2007 in the matter of diversion of DR quota JTO vacancies. The counsel for contempt petitioners has  chosen to withdraw the contempt petition and the high court has been pleased to dispose of the contempt petition on his statement. No adverse observation  with  account to supernumerary posting of Officiating  JTOs have been made by the court virtually accepting the stand of BSNL to adjust earlier test qualifying offg. JTOs. This order will pave way for adjustment/regular promotion of  all other offg. JTOs as a one time measure all over india. 
The BSNL Management have to proceed further in an impartial and judicious manner to settle the issues of officiating JTOs  amicably. The present development shows  that the suggestion  already put forward by AIBSNLEA in the matter of regularisation of the remaining officiating JTOs by a one time personal upgradation, is the correct  feasible and viable solution. Now the authorities are also at liberty to settle the issue by creating sufficient number of supernumerary posts. There was no need to wait for the closure of the Contempt of Court Case. BSNL ought to have  initiated  the regularisation of the remaining officiating JTOs through the upgradation as demanded by all recognised trade unions and associations in BSNL.   Now it is  time for the BSNL authorities to act judiciously and keep word as assured in writing  to AIBSNLEA  in this matter  in connection with the  settlement of  the latest Organisational  Actions called by AIBSNLEA.

09.07.2013: AIBSNLEA OA 2126/2009 in Principal Bench CAT, New Delhi reference mentioned in  the Operative portion of the judgment on 147 SDEs (LDCE Quota) retrospective seniority case:

17. We have to remind ourselves, some more are waiting in the wings, watching the proceedings, to jump on at the appropriate time. We cannot, but, record our deep anguish and displeasure at such conduct. We say this, because, the matter has been raised in various Benches of the Central Administrative Tribunal in Chandigarh, Cuttak, Calcutta and the Principal Bench with varying results. We only notice the proceedings pending before the Principal Bench (Judicial I) Delhi of the Central Administrative Tribunal, in O.A 2126/2009 wherein all the 147 merit based candidates are stated to be parties. We have been taken through the order of the Principal Bench dated 21.9.2011 wherein the proceedings pending before the various Benches were noticed, while considering the application for reference to a larger Bench. The Principal Bench has referred to OA No.86/2009 which challenged the seniority of the 147 persons as also the stay order of this Court dated 18.2.2010. The Principal Bench in paragraph 11 held so:

Contention raised by the counsel for the respondents before us is that since two contradictory views have been expressed by different Benches of the Tribunal, namely, Ernakulam Bench and Chandigarh Bench, the matter should be referred to the Full Bench. We, however, of the opinion that even if the matter is referred to the Full Bench, no purpose would be served because ultimately this very issue is pending before the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala. Once the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala gives its view, it would be binding not only on the parties but also on the Tribunal unless, it is upset by the Hon'ble Supreme Court or by some other High Court in some other proceedings. At that time the matter can be finally resolved. <<<Click here for the CAVEAT Filed by AIBSNLEA in The Hon'ble Supreme Court>>>>

(e) Regarding Left out cases of 2nd ACP benefit as per our letter dated 07.05.2013. PGM(BW) told that a letter has been written to Sr. DDG(BW) DoT for further n/a please.

04.07.2013: Operative portion of the judgment on 147 SDEs (LDCE Quota) retrospective seniority case:

36. Looking at the entire findings in Ext.P4 we are of the considered opinion that the Tribunal while directing the conduct of one consolidated qualifying and competitive examination for the period between 1992-96; also took judicial notice of the fact that all the vacancies prior to 1994 were filled up by candidates who had qualified in the examination of 1989. Specific O.P (CAT)3019/2011 and connected judicial notice taken of this fact and the observation that one cannot hope to put the clock back for all intents and purposes, in our considered opinion is a pointer to the fact that the Tribunal did not brook any upseting of filling up of vacancies prior to 1994. It is also pertinent that the candidates who qualified prior to 1991 were held to be admitted seniors of those qualifying later on. Though as contended by the LDCE candidates, who are the petitioners herein, such seniority was only against the quota of qualifying candidates and did not at all affect the competitive candidates; obviously, there is no pleading that any of the petitioners or any of the 147 persons included in the list of competitive candidates had qualified and were placed high on merit in the combined examinations, held prior to 1991. A candidate qualifying in the examination acquires a right to be promoted to the available vacancy and assignment of seniority only with respect to the year of qualification. Can a person who O.P (CAT)3019/2011 and connected qualified in the DQE and came out meritorious in the LDCE of a particular year, said to have acquired a right to a position prior to the year of his qualification'. In the absence of any such specific rule we are unable to answer the question in the affirmative.

47. Merely because the LDCE was not held from 1989 that does not create a vested right in the 147 candidates to be assigned seniority in the 1/3rd quota of LDCE from the year 1990 onwards. We have already found that the DQE and LDCE exams held in 2000-2003 were only to the vacancies of 1994-95, 1995-96 and 1996-97 (up to 22.7.1996). The promotion to the DQE quota can only be from the year in which a candidate qualified. The promotion on the basis of the LDCE can also be only to those 1/3rd available vacancies in the year of the LDCE. The distinction is in so far as the DQE is considered to the 2/3rd quota from the year in which he qualifies vis-a-vis the seniority among the DQE candidates; and on the basis of his qualification is considered in all the subsequent years. While the LDCE is considered only to the vacancies available in that year and the rank obtained by a candidate not entitling him to be considered in any subsequent years. Hence the 147 candidates ought to be considered for the 1/3rd vacancies in 1994-95, 1995-96 and 1996-97 (up to 22.7.1996) according to their merit as also their eligibility to appear for the combined examination. The eligibility year has to be considered since, one combined examination was held for three years. A candidate entitled to appear in 1996 (by reason of completing five years of regular service in the feeder category on the 1st of the January of the year) cannot be placed in the vacancy of 1994-1995; however, high his rank may be. If the seniority list requires any re-cast on the above lines; obviously, the official respondent ought to do so.
In the circumstances, we do not find any reason to differ from the decision of the Tribunal impugned in the writ petitions or interfere with the dismissal of the review applications impugned in the Original Petitions (CAT). The Writ Petitions and Original Petitions (CAT) are dismissed, however, with no costs.

03.07.2013:GS, AGS(C/E/Arch/TF) met GM(Estt.) and discussed regarding

(a) Clarification on JAOs Offg. arrangement: We requested to give early clarification on JAO Offg. case as asked by SEA Cell BSNL C.O. GM(Estt.) mentioned that he has seen the case and has given advice that JTO Offg. is continuing in BSNL, similarly, the cadre controlling authority of JAO Cadre may take the decision. He assured for early reply to SEA Cell.

(b) Allowing option to JAOs who joined after 07.05.2010 from non-executive cadres: We requested to allow exercising option who joined after 07.05.2010 as JAOs in different Circles in different months after declaration of JAO Part-II result and JAO training. GM(Estt.) further mentioned that he is still not convinced  on this issue since such provision does not exists in FR/SR as well as in DPE guidelines. However, he assured to re-examine the feedback given by our Association.

(c) 3% fitment benefit on promotion first in substantive grade and thereafter on promotion grade: We requested that since DPE has clarified that pay fixation first should be given 3% fitment benefit on promotion first in substantive grade and thereafter on promotion grade. GM(Estt.) assured for early issuance of the order as per DPE guidelines.

AIBSNLEA efforts to get filled up the vacant JAG/STS/Group-'B' level posts: AISBNLEA consistent efforts with BSNL Management and through our Circle Secretary Kerala to get early pronouncement of the Court judgment through BSNL's advocate. Sr. GM(Pers.) on several occasions spoke to CGMT Kerala Circle for early judgment. Finally, we succeeded in getting judgment pronounced. We met concern officers in Pers. Cell and Vigilance Cell to expedite the CPC work so that further litigations are avoided and promotion order is issued. With the positive and helping attitude of CMD BSNL, Director(HR), the 119 DGMs promotion order was issued on 02.07.2013 itself.

 

Similarly, we continuously persuaded in BSNL C.O. recruitment Cell, Pers. Cell, Vigilance Cell for early declaration of LDCE result and SDEs promotion order. BSNL C.O. took immediate  steps on fast track to collect VCRs and issuing posting  order on promotion of 2380 SDEs(T) on the same day of LDCE result issued by working day and night hours. Our GS, AGS(HQ) were continuously pursuing and remained present till the time promotion order of DGMs and JTO to SDEs were issued.

-

We also appreciated the efforts taken by our Circle / Branch Secretaries in completing the ACRs and sending VCRs to BSNL C.O. to expedite CPCs. It helped a lot in issuing promotion order on fast track. Similarly, AIBSNLEA is making sincere efforts to get expedite the CPCs from JTO to SDE(T) and SDE to DE Adhoc and Regular basis.

 

In this regard, our  Circle/Branch Secretaries are to ensure immediate sending of ACRs for DE Regular CPC against the vacancy year 2011-12 and VCRs against the years 2009-10, 2010-11 & 2011-12 vacancies of DEs. Also VCRs of eligible JTOs to SDE(T) promotion.

 

Director(HR) has also assured to take immediate necessary steps to notify LDCE to fill up SDEs(T) posts of the vacancies of  years 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13.

 

 We also requested CMD, BSNL, Director(HR) to fill up the vacant posts of EEs(C/E). It is understood that the representations of SDEs(C/E) and our Association on allowing diploma holders to the posts of EE(C/E) and entry of MTs etc are being examined, thereafter only the action will be taken for modification of BSNL MSRRs and to initiate CPC.

03.07.2013:   GS, AGS(HQ),  AGS(C/E/Arch/TF) met CMD BSNL, Director(HR), Sr. GM(Pers.), GM(SR), DGM(Pers.) and othr concerned officers in BSNL C.O. and extended our sincere gratitude and thanks for issuing 119 DGMs and 2380 SDEs promotion orders by taking prompt action. We also requested to fill up the  vacant SDEs, DEs and DGMs posts at the earliest.

 

Sr. GM(Pers.) mentioned that CPC from SDE(T) to DE Adhoc / Regular are in process as well as the CPC from JTO to SDE(T) of seniority-cum-fitness quota is also in process. He assured that sincere efforts are being made to fill up about 1860 posts of DEs on adhoc & about 1500 posts on regular basis and also about 2000 posts of SDEs(T) on regular basis at the earliest.

 

Sr. GM(Pers.) also assured that as soon as the VCRs are received SDE(TF) to AGM(TF) CPC will be conducted and the CPC to fill up SDEs(TF) posts has been initiated.

 

We requested Sr. GM(Pers.) to re-examine the posting on promotion order wherein in some Circles 80 to 90% JTOs on promotion to SDE have been transferred and posted to hard tenure Circles. It will create immediate shortage of executives in that particular Circle, which will adversely affect the Circle viability and mass dislocation of executives. In view of this SDEs on promotion should have been posted in the deficit circles from nearby circles and on proportionate basis. However, some requests have been considered.

03.07.2013: GS, AGS(HQ),  AGS(C/E/Arch/TF) met  Director(Fin.), BSNL Board and requested to fill up vacant DGM(Fin.), CAO and AO posts at the earliest. Director(Fin.) mentioned that the CPCs to fill up vacant DGM and CAO posts are in process but JAO to AO CPC is held up due to legal case pending. However, he assured an early action in this regard.
