05.08.2022    GS AIBSNLEA writes to the CMD BSNL for the immediate issuance of Promotion order of SDE(T) to AGM(T) for all who are present in current Seniority Lists No. 8, 9 & 10, 11, 12 & 13 without accepting any room for divisive politics made by the so called Majority Association.

There is no Ambiguity in Foot-Note -2 below Schedule 1A of MSRR, 2009 as interpreted by the so called Majority Association in an Un-fair manner and divisive language of revulsion from narrow minded vision. By the Letter addressed to CMD BSNL, the so called Majority Association wants to derail or delay the ongoing SDE/AO to AGM/CAO and equivalent promotion process.

In this regard Speaking order has also been issued by the BSNL Corporate Office, New Delhi vide the above cited reference to the Hon’ble CAT, Chennai through CGM, Chennai with a copy to the respondent Association AIGETOA on 27.06.2018, wherein it was clearly mentioned that “However the Competent Authority i.e., BSNL Board could not  remain obvious to the fact that both through the absorption of erstwhile DoT/DTS/DTO employees and through recruitment under its own 2001 RRs for JTO, a homogeneous mix of engineering graduates and other graduates were available in its human resource in the JTO/SDE grades on the date promulgation of BSNL MS RRs. Also, it could not ignore the fact that at no point in the past were any of the SDEs, where engineering graduate or otherwise, made in eligible for promotion to DE/AGM grades.”Besides, in the instructions/guidelines for making RR issued by DOP&T, vide O.M.No.AB.14017/48/2010-Estt..(RR)dt.31.12.2010, it has been very clearly stipulated that [3.1.3 Where the eligible Service for promotion prescribed in the existing rules is being enhanced (to be in conformity with the guidelines issued by this Department) and the change is likely to affect adversely some persons holding the feeder grade posts on regular basis, a note to that effect that the eligibility service shall continue to be the same for persons holding the feeder posts on regular basis on the date notification of the revised rules, could be included in the revised rules.] Hence existing incumbents holding the posts of Executives on regular basis on the date of notification of these RRs shall continue to be eligible for promotion to the grade of DE/AGM/CAO means the persons holding the feeder cadre posts(Say JTO equivalent Executive Post) on regular basis.

Pursuant to the orders contained in the above said speaking Order by the BSNL CO on 27.06.2018, more than 4500 SDE(T) to DE/AGM promotion orders hav also been issued by the BSNL CO on 29.06.2018 and in the month of July’2018 also.

The so called majority Association suppressed all the facts, Speaking order to Honble CAT Chennai and the AGM Promotion orders issued on 29.06.2018 etc., and  again singing the song of wrong interpretation of Foot-Note -2 below Schedule 1A of MSRR, 2009 “existing incumbents holding the posts of Executives on regular basis on the date of notification of these RRs shall continue to be eligible for promotion to the grade of DE/AGM/CAO” in an Un-fair manner and divisive language of revulsion from narrow minded vision.

AIBSNLEA in a unique and transparent manner submitted the facts to the Management with the relevant Speaking Order issued by the BSNL CO and always trying its best to get Promotion Orders for all eligible Executives in a transparent manner.

In view of the foregoing facts, Promotion order of SDE(T) to AGM(T) for all who are present in current seniority Lists 8, 9 & 10, 11, 12 & 13 may be issued without accepting any room for divisive politics. Same treatment in Promotion may be extended to all other streams. Understandably the DPC for Promotion order of SDE(T) to AGM(T) is in the pipeline. Any kind of non-conventional twists and turns will help to delay the process of Promotions.  During the SDE(T) to AGM(T) promotions in 2018 also, some vested interest groups of people tried to sabotage  the promotion process but they could not succeed      …… continues………

On behalf of AIBSNLEA, Shri J.K. Patel, Dy. General Secretary has congratulated the CMD BSNL and all the Board of Directors for their continuous hard work for the past one year to convince the PMO, MOC, Sec.(T) and DoT officers to put faith in BSNL and thanked them for working assiduously to bring this revival package 2.0 and getting strong support for BSNL. He also expressed the heartiest gratitude and sincere thanks to the Hon. PM, Shri Narendra Modiji, Hon. MOC, Shri Ashwini Vaishnavji and the Union Cabinet for granting 2nd revival package for BSNL during a very crucial period.

In his deliberation, he mentioned that AIBSNLEA was also continuously pursuing the matters with PMO, Secretary (T), Sr. Officers in DoT as well as with the BSNL Management for granting the support for Viability Gap Funding from Govt. for amounting to Rs.13,789 Crore for the last 6 years.  

He also expressed the feelings of field units about the shortage of funds and cash crunch and facing difficulties in day to day maintenance of the services and also for Capital expenditure. Sometimes executives are also using their own pocket money for attending very urgent nature of network issues. Dy.GS also explained about the real feelings of the common employee about the BSNL that whether BSNL will revive, survive and continue or closed which has caused serious frustration, de-motivation and confusion among the minds of the primary employee.

However, it is now very much clear with this 2nd Revival Package awarded by the Central Government to BSNL that the hopes are again generated and we can together call that “Andhera Hatega and Suraj Nikalega”. On behalf of AIBSNLEA, he assured that we will work hard to achieve the targets even before the dead lines given by the Hon. PM for the Mission-500.

Simultaneously, he also mentioned that we all are ready to work more than 8 hours but our prolonged HR issues, Promotion, Pay & Perks should be settled within a due timeline. He also emphasized that there will be no much financial burden in the Promotions due to all the eligible executives since most of them have already crossed the Pay Scale of their respective Promoted Posts. He explained that several HR issues can be settled at the level of BSNL Management itself and need not to be sent even to DoT which needs immediate settlement and rest may be recommended to DoT for their final settlement in the due course of time with regular persuasion so that each Executive and Employee is highly motivated and energized to deliver the best for the growth of our great Organization BSNL. Before conclude, he once again Congratulated and extended sincere thanks towards the untiring efforts done by the CMD BSNL and the Board of Directors in getting the 2nd Revival Package in favour of BSNL. On behalf of AIBSNLEA family, he specially conveyed the heartfelt gratitude to the Hon. PM Shri Narendra Modiji, Hon. MOC, Shri Ashwini Vaishnavji, MoSC Shri Devusing Chauhanji, Secretary (T) Shri K. Rajaraman ji, Sr.DDG (PM) DoT and all the Sr. Officers of DoT.

02.08.2022    GS writes to Shri P.K. Purwar ji CMD BSNL regarding immediate issuance of long awaited AGM/CAO equivalent posts for all Streams. 

Since the Court disputes in respect of Reservation & Seniority issues may drag indefinitely to prolonged and no one not known about the final Judgment from the Hon'ble Court of Law for solution especially when thousands of cases are dragged down due to the interruption of Covid-19 Pandemic. 

The repeated swinging of hopes and despair created to the minds of the aspirants pushed all the affected Executives into frustration.

AIBSNLEA appealed to issue immediate prolonged promotion orders without much delay in all Streams in a single go as a special measure.   <<<Click here for GS Letter>>>

28.07.2022   Revival Package 2.0 for BSNL amounting to Rs.1.64 lakh Crore:

Telecom is a strategic sector. Presence of BSNL in telecom market acts as a market balancer. BSNL plays a crucial role in expansion of telecom services in rural areas, development of indigenous technology and disaster relief. To make BSNL financially viable, the Union Cabinet chaired by the Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji today approved the revival package of BSNL amounting to Rs 1.64 Lakh Crore.

Revival measures approved by the Union Cabinet focus on infusing fresh capital for upgrading BSNL services, allocating spectrum, de-stressing its balance sheet, and augmenting its fiber network by merging Bharat Broadband Nigam Limited (BBNL) with BSNL.

All CHQ Office Bearers, Circle/District Secretaries are requested to implement the same in true sense.

26.07.2022   Meeting with Sr. Officers in Corporate Office:

CHQ President and Dy.GS AIBSNLEA met various Senior Officers in BSNL Corporate Office in HR/ Pers, Estt., SR & Rectt and discussed on vital issues in depth. Outcome on the basis of the discussions on various issues is as under:

A) Promotion from SDE(T) to DE(T)/AGM(T): We enquired about the latest status of the Promotion process in SDE(T) to AGM(T). It is mentioned that the CPC/ Promotion process is already started and promotion order would be released after some due formalities. AIBSNLEA has reaffirm it’s earlier view that all eligible SDE(T)s who have completed the qualifying service of 7 years (list 8 to 13) may be considered for the AGM(T) promotions in one go to avoid any displeasure among the eligible executives. Our concern was appreciated by the Sr. Officers and shared our views that all eligible executives will be promoted without any prejudice and legal complicity. CMD BSNL has already directed to go through the DoT & DoPT promotion orders and depute the officers or call for the details/ clarifications to follow the same principle in BSNL in respect of the reservation in promotions.

It is further enlightened, on our query, that the BSNL Management is getting ready for SDET to AGMT promotion and no further written consent is required and the promotion will be happened as per the DoP&T OM dated 12.04.2022 read with OM dt 1997 regarding roaster issue. If any clarification is required from DoT/DOPT in this regard, it will be called for very quickly. AIBSNLEA again reiterated & suggested that all eligible SDEs may be promoted in a single go so that no future legal hurdle/litigation would be there.

However it is opined that as per the Management perspective, the promotions can be given to only available vacancies. AIBSNLEA strongly protested against it and exerted pressure that if the Promotions for SDEs is given, please promote all the eligible candidates from the list No 8 to 13 who have completed the eligible 7 years of service in SDE cadre as an one time measure.

It is mentioned that BSNL Management is trying its level best to execute the promotion orders as early as possible without any legal complexities. We emphasized that promotion orders may be released without any further delay since it is already delayed right from the implementation of VRS 2019. It is again assured for the early issuance of the same.

B) Promotion from AO to CAO: We submitted that in the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh, nothing has happened on the latest date (14.07.2022) of hearing also and this Association has been continuously getting the appraisal from the members of Accounts fraternity that the AO to CAO promotion has struck unfortunately since 2018 in the Court of Law after calling “Status Quo” from CAT Chandigarh. It is uncalled for that the Status Quo is continued for the years together. Though the Management is continuously trying to vacate the “Status Quo”, but nothing has fruitfully happened since 29.11.2018 and all the eligible executives are very much annoyed. This is a great concern for AIBSNLEA and hence much more sincere efforts are expected from the BSNL Management to release the AO to CAO promotion immediately is quite natural. During the last discussion with AIBSNLEA it was assured that if the Status Quo will not be removed on the next date i.e. 14.07.2022, the BSNL Management will move to the Higher Court for further course of action. Now this is the high time to approach to the Higher Court to get vacate the Status Quo from the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh.

This delay very badly affecting the working morale of the affected Accounts Officers since the very unlucky turn in their carrier happened in 2018 after the issuance of the AO to CAO promotion and consequential “Status Quo” called for by Hon’ble Court resulted some of the AOs could not join on their CAO posts even after issuance of their promotion orders and before the status quo is ordered some juniors to them had fortunately joined as CAO. The unluckily seniors faced handicap in joining their CAO posts due to their inter Circle transfer, not relieved and “Status Quo” ordered by the Hon’ble Court. In turn, the AOs who are Seniors but AOs even now and falling four years loss in CAO service compared to their juniors when counted for next CAO to DGM(F) promotion. This is a very big anomaly in the History of the BSNL.

It is unfortunate that the JAOs appointed since 1996 onwards are waiting for their due CAO promotion for the past 26 years. The eligible executives for CAO promotion are very less, hence in the interest of the BSNL and manning the CAOs/IFAs positions in the Corporate, Circle HQs & Business Areas offices in an efficient manner necessary relaxation for 15 - 16 days may also be considered in the very interest of BSNL Services for the promotions from AO to CAO in BSNL.

Concerned Sr. Officers totally shared our concern empathetically and informed that Management is doing their level best to vacate the “Status Quo” from the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh by engaging Sr. Counsel/ASG. This time unfortunately Division Bench was not available and the case was not heard and listed for 23.08.2022. On query to approach to the Higher Court, it is shared that at this stage if BSNL will approach to the Higher Court, it may issue further notices to the related parties resulted may take further more time and we may lose the opportunity from the Hon’ble CAT on the next date of hearing so it is not advisable at this stage and we may wait for the next date of hearing for final disposal/ vacation of the Status Quo etc. Management side assured once again that Management will take extra efforts to get vacate the unfortunate hurdle in AO to CAO promotion at the earliest and BSNL will be able to issue AO to CAO promotion also since BSNL is incurring huge expenditure in this case in the Court of Law.

C) Promotion for all other equivalent Cadres of SDE/AO in all other Streams and further from AGM(T)/CAO to DGM(Tel./Fin.), DGM (Adhoc) to DGM (Regular) and equivalent Cadres: We requested for the issuance of all pending promotion orders in all other Cadres than Telecom/Accounts viz: Civil, Elect, TF, Arch., PA/PS/PPS, CSS/CSSS etc. It is mentioned that let the ongoing process for the promotion from SDE to AGM be completed. Similar action will immediately be initiated for the issuance of the promotion orders for all the equivalent cadres also.

In respect of AGM/CAO equivalent to DGM equivalent and also for Adhoc to Regular promotions, it has been mentioned that presently the officers promoted in 2018 are not eligible for next higher promotion. As and when any executive will be eligible and the vacancies are available they will be promoted to the respective regular DGM posts without any legal hurdles and any relaxation cannot be considered at this stage. The Management is very much keen to give the promotions for all Cadres but any legal hurdle will badly delay the process of promotions.  

D) Huge reduction/cut in Accounts Officers’ Sanctioned strength in Chennai TD and Kolkatta TD after BSNL Restructuring: AIBSNLEA requested for the enhancement of the Sanctioned strength of Executives in Accounts Cadre as proposed by the concerned CGMTs of CHTD and Kol TD.  We pleaded for the enhancement of Sanctioned Posts of Accounts Executives in these Circles on the performance basis at par with Major Circles

In this regard it is replied that the Management is analyzing and reviewing the situations once again and the Strength of the Executives in Chennai TD and Kolkata TD would be enhanced further as requested by AIBSNLEA. AIBSNLEA extended since thanks for it.

E) Merger of NATFM with ALTTC and the Accounts Officers shifted without extending Options.

AIBSNLEA submitted the bad fate of Executives of Accounts Vertical in NATFAM Hyderabad. Along with the merger of NATFAM Hyderabad to ALTTC Ghaziabad, the Accounts Executives have also been transferred from Hyderabad to ALTTC Ghaziabad without extending the chance to exercise Options for the other Circles/BAs etc., whereas options were called from the Executives working in other RTTCs Rajpura /Jaipur /Lucknow for their posting in Territorial Circles when those Training Centers have been merged. Similarly, in Telecom side also options have been called for when QA & Inspection Circle is merged and we are thank-full to the BSNL management that almost all the executives have been retained in the same Circle as per their options. This is an embarrassing situation for the Executives in NATFAM only. It is re-assured to take remedial actions in favor of the transferred Executives to ALTTC.  AIBSNLEA hoping that the orders for the NETFAM executives also will be issued shortly.

F) Victimized transfer of DS Ludhiana to Patiala: AIBSNLEA discussed the matter in detail. After patient hearing it is mentioned that the request of AIBSNLEA has already been taken up and the detailed report in this regard is being called for from the CGMT Punjab Circle. Accordingly the corrective action will be taken; is assured by the Authority concern.

G) Bug in the APAR software package: We have already written to the BSNL Management on the issue to debug the malicious trap in the APAR software package and save the future of several dedicated officers already trapped, for the reason no way related to them, through the avoidable bug in the ERP system. We have reiterated that the inadvertent error while reporting/ reviewing eAPAR has been reported by our Circle Secretary, CHTD Circle causing non-consideration of the Financial Up gradation/ promotion to the executives and it is a highly regrettable matter. This is not the lone case of Chennai TD. Understandably, in some cases, the Reporting & Reviewing authorities giving notes also in writing in favour of the affected officers stating that the wrong option selected against “Integrity” column under para 4 of eAPAR which has been happened inadvertently and could not be corrected since there is no option to revert it further after some time line. These noting of the Reporting & Reviewing authorities may be treated as “Beyond Doubt”. After patient hearing it is informed that the matter reported by AIBSNLEA is genuine and it has been taken up with the concerned authorities in Corporate Office. Some concerned officers are on leave and on their return; after discussion necessary modification will be arranged in the eAPAR software to avoid future recurrences. Necessary guidelines/instructions will also be issued in respect of the existing cases where it is happened inadvertently and the affected executives are facing hardship etc., It is assured to AIBSNLEA that no executive will be left behind from their due up-gradation/ promotion due to the inadvertent error for the reason no way related to them. AIBSNLEA extended since thanks to the BSNL Management.          

Many individual genuine transfer cases like Chronic Medical Ground, Couple Cases, Education Ground since the Children studding in Higher Classes and other pending OTP applications, Modification, Retentions etc., affected to our members have also been discussed in detail. Cases of transfers where orders already issued but not relieved yet have also been discussed and several genuine cases have been agreed by the authorities and necessary orders will be issued shortly. The Sr. Officers appreciated AIBSNLEA in taking up matters with the Management in a convincing manner.

14.07.2022 GS writes to Director (HR) BSNL Board on the Pay disparity among executives recruited just before and after 01-01-2007, demanding  Rs.22820 Pay Fixation for all to avoid any pay loss .

AIBSNLEA would like to draw the kind attention of the Management on the above matter. In this regard, we wish to submit that in BSNL, the basic pay and the Pay Scales of the Executives recruited prior to 01.01.2007 and after 01.01.2007 onwards are entirely different which created widespread resentment among the Executives recruited after 01.01.2007. There is huge difference in Pay to the tune of Rs. 10000/- between the two sets of Executives. Even their Pay scales are not finalized so far. The affected officers are deeply demoted to a lower Pay scale and placed in E1 scale provisionally......

14.07.2022 My Dear Executives in BSNL, Greetings to one and all

It is thrillingly noticed and get reported from the Circles that several fresh Memberships are getting enrolled with AIBSNLEA.

AIBSNLEA is the lone gentle and capable Association holding thousands of Executives from all disciplines of BSNL under its shelter for arranging legitimate benefits to our esteemed members. The legacy and pride of AIBSNLEA is unmatched with any other Associations in BSNL.

It is also reported that some low-priced sentimental move from our sister associations are going around our members in some pockets telling that AIBSNLEA will be either Support or Merge with them. This is totally baseless and false. As loudly declared in our AIC at Chennai in March 2022, AIBSNLEA will fight independently in the next referendum also. We request our Sister Associations also to stop these foul plays.

AIBSNLEA has clear clarity on the fact that  all Executives in BSNL are well capable of understanding what is going on in BSNL from the side of Associations positioned at MA & SA specially in settling Long pending HR issues including Promotions for All Cadres , 30% SAB , implementation of Standard Pay Scales E2 & E3 and E1+5 increments etc. When we analyze the Performance of BSNL Associations for the Past 5.5 years, i.e. right from 1st referendum, only AIBSNLEA could yield something for the Executives in terms of Mass Promotions in all Cadres during 2018. Even though AIBSNLEA was the Support Association by that time we could yield much for the benefits of Executives when the then Majority Association was asking for only CPSU cadre Hierarchy. AIBSNLEA is always for the better promotion prospective of Executives but on practicality.

Presently , even our long pending genuine promotions in all cadres are lasting for years together and our executive comrades are deeply  frustrated in a way that cannot be narrated here through words but it can be experienced by those who have been really affected viz SDE(T) to AGM(T) , AO to CAO , SDE(E) to EE(E) , SDE( C ) to EE( C ) , PS to PPS , PPS to Sr PPS and all others. Here we are not blaming only to the Management for not happening the promotions , but what contributions from the MA(Majority Association ) and SA( Support Association ) have been rendered  is the matter of concern for the Executives in BSNL. Had AIBSNLEA been in the helm of affairs, certainly the promotion orders could have been released already in all Cadres is an assured fact based on our past experience as had been showcased in 2018. Why did MA and SA sign MOU with Management? What is the logic behind it? Do any OM  from DOT is there to issue promotion orders through  MOU? Moreover, what is the basic logic behind in arranging signature from one welfare association for promotion ? Is it not the utter failure of MA and SA ? In many departments and PSUs , pending  promotion orders are being released and why only in BSNL it has been not been happened ? Is it also  not the failure of MA and SA of BSNL ?  Intentionally AIBSNLEA has not taken part in this drama because we felt that MA and SA are not serious on getting the promotion orders released, though we have the support of Thousands of beloved executives in BSNL

BSNL Executives made mandate for MA and SA for extracting out the genuine  rights of the executives including due promotions from Management than engaging with some sort of drama. Even now we feel that enough windows of possibilities are there to get the long pending promotion orders released for all cadres in BSNL. It is saddened to note that by hitting on the term of “Reservation in Promotion”, promotions in all verticals for all executives including OC/SC and ST are struck and road block is happened. AIBSNLEA perceive that this dead lock can easily be unlocked with suitable Key combinations.

AIBSNLEA is not telling some sentimental stories and not wishing to showcase some website series of Agitation Dramas to canvass members as we feel  that  all executives in BSNL are well educated and knowledgably ahead to understand what is what …

Dear Com, believe in the Legacy , Gentleness and Maturity of AIBSNLEA ….

Join AIBSNLEA En mass ….Tomorrows are Yours….  AIBSNLEA will not do all these Dramas but always giving positive results than your expectations.

This window opening for Membership Enrolment is just a Semifinal and the Final, the Membership Verification of Executives’ Association, is falling in Next Year. Think Wisely…..Join Hands with AIBSNLEA and Strengthen its’ Matured leadership….



On Behalf of AIBSNLEA CHQ ,


14.07.2022 Update on the Status of the Court Case filed by AIBSNLEA  against UOI (DOT) on Withdrawal of the Additional Increment in the same Scale on Functional Promotion under EPP: Writ Petition (C) No 9237 of 2018.

DoT vide its letter dated 05.07.2017 withdraw additional Increment in the same Scale on Functional Promotion under EPP. Against this arbitrary action by DoT, AIBSNLEA immediately filed an OA in the Hon’ble PB CAT New Delhi for quashing the orders. Accordingly, Hon’ble PB CAT after some hearings quashed & set aside the said order of DoT dated 05.07.2017. Even after that DoT continued to reduce the pension of the BSNL retiree executives, against this AIBSNLEA filed a Contempt Petition in the Hon’ble PB CAT New Delhi. Thereafter DoT stopped reducing the Pension/revising the Pay fixation by obtaining an undertaking from the BSNL Executives; This negative effect of reduction in Pension calculation is common for executives absorbed in BSNL and for  DR executives.

DoT has filed Writ Petition in the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi wherein AIBSNLEA has filed a Caveat. 

AIBSNLEA Leaders have submitted its' views in the meeting held on 30.09.2019 between representative officers of DoT & BSNL and render justice by withdrawing the impugned order of DoT dated 05.07.2017.

The case in the Honb’le High Court, Delhi was listed on different dates but could not heard due to Covid situation during 2020 - 2021 and it was last heard on 28.03.2022. Now the case is re-notified for further hearing on 31.08.2022.

In the mean time DoT directed BSNL on 07.02.2020, to withdraw the additional increment as per the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 which was quashed by Hon’ble PB CAT New Delhi on 21.12.2017 and pending with the Honb’le High Court, Delhi. As per the suggestions of AIBSNLEA in the meeting held on 30.09.2019, BSNL Management again written a letter to the Secretary (Telecom) on 22.07.2021 requesting to withdraw the DoT order dated 05.07.2017. But surprisingly DoT vide its letter dated 30.03.2022 once again directed to implement the order dated 05.07.2017 which is against Hon’ble PB CAT New Delhi order dated 21.12.2017 and it is Contempt of Court.

As AIBSNLEA CHQ promised and written on website on 23.06.2022 that AIBSNLEA is going to issue “Legal Notice” to DoT, and file the Application and Counter Affidavit in the Honb’le High Court, Delhi through our Sr. Counsel. Accordingly AIBSNLEA has filed an Application in Hon'ble HC of Delhi through our Senior Counsel immediately on the opening of the Court on 04.07.2022 after vacations.

This Case is listed for Yesterday i.e. 13-07-2022, but the Court could not sit on some reasons and posted further for hearing on 05-08-2022.  

AIBSNLEA is the only Association taken up this very prestigious case wherein all Executives both absorbed in BSNL and directly recruited by BSNL are affected financially, especially during Pension Calculation on Superannuation.

13.07.2022 Status of All India Eligibility List of JAOs 2016 & 2018 Batches:
