Message from Army to Soldiers

In the proud tradition of the Air Force,  the Brothers in Arms and the IAF family has sent the following condolence message to those  died in the chopper crash while engaged in saving the lives of thousands of people in the Uttarakhand disaster:

" You all have done us proud, for you gave your life in service of your countrymen without discretion of colour, caste, creed or religion - more importantly, in their hour of need. You are now a guiding beacon in our deeds. Your selfless sacrifice in Operation Rahat is monumental and just remembering it would be more than any pilgrimage to us."

All Indians will be sharing the same condolence to those brave hearts who sacrificed themselves to save others in the hour of need.

Decisions of the Forum Meeting held on 26th June 2013

A meeting of the Forum of BSNL Unions / Associations was held on 26th June 2013 at the BSNLMS office. Com. Islam Ahmad presided. Com. V.A.N. Namboodiri, Convener briefed the meeting about the activities after the last meeting.

The disaster in Uttarakhand:

1. The meeting expressed its deep grief and condolence to the more than 1,000 people killed due to the savage floods and landslides in Uttarakhand. Many more are feared to be killed. Thousands are still stranded and in danger. The meeting conveyed its heartfelt condolences to the families of the bereaved people.

2. The Forum meeting appreciated and expressed its thanks to the Military (including Air Force and all defence personnel) for the continued efforts to save the stranded pilgrims, tourists and local population round the clock, without even considering their own safety. Already some of these army personnel have sacrificed their lives to bring the stranded to safety. The Forum condoled the death of these brave hearts who are the pride of the country.

3. The meeting unanimously decided to donate one day pay to the Prime Minister's Relief Fund for helping the people affected by the Uttarakhand disaster. The Forum requested that the amount be deducted from the salary of the employees. (It is expected that the donation will come around Rs. 40 to 50 crore.)  The Forum has also suggested that an advance by BSNL be immediately given to Relief Fund, without waiting for the collection.

4. The Forum urged the BSNL Management to make all efforts for the immediate restoration of the BSNL services in the state. Our employees have been doing their best to restore the services, even working 24 hours. The Forum requests the management to make available all required equipment for the restoration. Forum wants the management to immediately take necessary steps to assist the BSNL employees who have been affected due to the disaster both in Uttarakhand and those tourists/ pilgrims from other circles.

5. The Forum requested DOT to financially support BSNL in its efforts to restore the services in Uttarakhand. This will help BSNL which is in a weak financial position.

Historical achievement of Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations on implementation of 78.2% IDA Pay fixation

Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations continuously persuaded for implementation of DPE OM dated 2nd April,2009 on 78.2% IDA Pay fixation for the last four years. The OM was issued as a total package of 2nd PRC recommendations and that time BSNL's net profit for the year 2008-09 was Rs. 574 crores after tax and 1272 crores before tax. But the BSNL Management continuously pleaded that since BSNL has started making losses since the years 2009-10 onwards, it is not possible to implement the DPE order. BSNL Unions and Associations also did not pressurize the Management for its implementation. But on dated 25.05.2012 & 21.05.2013 BSNL Management issued order for the payment of all the allowances as recommended by 6th CPC to the deputationist ITS Officers in BSNL ignoring the losses of BSNL which gave clear cut message that BSNL's losses is not the real criteria to deny the implementation of DPE order but it is the willingness of the Management to whom they give or to whom they deny. It created unrest and resentment among the BSNL employees and the Forum of BSNL Unions / Associations served notice of Indefinite strike w.e.f. 12th June 2012 and Mass Dharna on 6th June,2013 which was very successfully implemented but later on the indefinite strike call was deferred in view of the agreement signed between BSNL Management and the representatives of BSNL Unions/Associations on 12th June,2012.

BSNL Board approved the proposal for implementation of 78.2% IDA pay fixation and sent to DoT in Sept'2012 for approval. DoT raised queries twice which were immediately replied by BSNL. But, instead of giving approval DoT referred the case to BRPSE for comments since BSNL is making continues losses. BRPSE replied that it has no concern with regard to pay and allowances paid by the PSU but it is concern only when some revival plan is submitted. Delay seriously frustrated the BSNL employees and finally the BSNL Unions/Associations served notice for Indefinite strike w.e.f. 12th June 2013. In response to the agitation Call given by Forum, the DoT administration and BSNL Management started thinking for the settlement of issue and finally with the intervention of Secy(T), DoT Hon'ble MOC&IT approved the proposal on 10th June,2013 and on the same day DoT issued the Presidential Directive for implementation of DPE OM dated 2nd April'2009 on 78.2% IDA pay fixation. On the basis of DoT Order, BSNL Corporate Office also issued order for implementation of DPE ON dated 2nd April,2013. In this manner, the consistent efforts of BSNL Unions/Associations made Historical achievement for BSNL employees. AIBSNLEA was always at the forefront during struggle.

Once again, we extended our sincere thanks to all the members for their active participation in Mass DHARNA & Demonstration and also readiness to make indefinite strike call a complete success. We also extended sincere thanks to all the Senior Officers in DoT and BSNL for their positiveness in implementing the DPE order.

We appraised him that the case is pending in DoT for the last 10 months and the queries made by DoT have been replied by BSNL twice. Whereas,  the deputationist ITS Officers have been given all the allowances of 6th CPC. Secy(T) appreciated our concern and mentioned that strike call should have not been given since the GoM is working on revival of BSNL.

Also they are being given regular promotions against BSNL's posts. Whereas, BSNL absorbed Group-'A' & 'B' level executives are not being promoted against SAG/JAG/SAG/HAG level posts ignoring Cabinet decision.

Also committed management is required to run the PSU. Thousands of Group-'A' level posts are lying vacant but no promotions are being made in BSNL which created frustration and de-motivation amongst the absorbed BSNL executives.

03.06.2013:Hon'ble Principal Bench CAT, New Delhi judgment dated 21.05.2013 in the LDCE case for promotion from JTO(T) to SDE(T):

 

:OPERATIVE PORTION:

.............

19. In our considered view, still there are discrepancies and, therefore, still there is scope for improvement. According to the Expert Committee, for some questions, 2 options can be taken as correct, for some other questions all options are wrong and for few other questions, one option is alone correct. But according to paper setters for some questions (3) three options are correct and for some other questions (2) two options are correct. In such circumstance, we shall look forward to the principles laid down by Apex Court which say that merit shall not be allowed to be the casualty of wrong answer key and the correct answers shall not be sacrificed. Further, in such circumstances, as far as possible, the final authority to decide whether a answer is correct or wrong shall be left to the Expert(s). For some questions, however, if the decision of the Expert(s) does not solve all the problem, we are bound to take appropriate decisions. Therefore, there is nothing wrong in accepting the recommendation of the Expert Committee to award one full mark to all the answers where all options are wrong. Again, for a set of questions when the Expert Committee says option D is the only correct answer and for another set of questions when it says, option A alone is the correct answer, the Respondent-BSNL shall go with the said recommendations and not to substitute them with its own compromise formula of awarding full one mark to all who have opted for A , B and D or A and D respectively. Conversely, the recommendation of the Expert Committee that two options for another set of questions also cannot be accepted as it would create further confusion, particularly when there is negative marking. Therefore, all such questions shall be totally ignored.
20.
We, therefore, dispose of all these OAs with the direction to the Respondent-BSNL to re-evaluate all the answer sheets of all the candidates based on the aforesaid principles and parameters and prepare a fresh list of qualified candidates. Since the examination was held on 04.03.2012 and candidates are awaiting for their promotion for over an year, the Respondent-BSNL shall ensure that the fresh list of qualified candidates is published as early as possible, preferably within 2 months from the date of receipt of a copy of this order.
