Only few proposals were received by the committee. They are summarized as below:

 

1.Annulment of 60:40 pension sharing system limiting Govt's liability only to 60%  of the collection received from BSNL. Due to effective persuasions by AIBSNLEA and AIRBSNLEWA, DOT has moved the cabinet memo for annulment of this provision along with 78.2%  IDA fixation for pensioners proposal. If Central Cabinet agrees to the proposal then it is good for all. Otherwise AIBSNLEA should take legal action against this draconian law.

2.Pension Revision Should be delinked from implementation of PRC report to serving employees. The liability of pension revision due to PRC report lies with DOT whereas that of serving employees is with BSNL. If due to any reason BSNL does not implement the PRC recommendation, pension revision should not be held up  for that. Even for a serving employee for whom PRC is not implemented, pension should be fixed based on the pay he would have got, had his pay been fixed as per PRC.

3.Inclusion of PENSION REVISION in the terms and references of 3rd PRC. 3rd PRC has been constituted. In spite of DOT,s letter, Pension Revision is not included in terms and reference of the committee.  Association should try to include this important issue in the terms and reference of  the PRC.

4.Indoor and Outdoor medical facilities for serving and retired employees: Association should take up the issue with BSNL for smooth payment of outdoor and indoor medical claims.

5.Empanelment of Hospitals for treatment on cash basis on CGHS rate. Corporate office should instruct the circles to empanel hospitals who will offer treatment on cash basis at CGHS rates only and shall supply all treatment related documents , required  to get the reimbursement .

29.06.2016:     Minutes of the Joint Meeting of  AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA at Mysuru on 18.06.2016

 

Com. P Venugopal, President AIBENLEA welcomed one and all to the joint session of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA and take part in the discussions.  He appreciated the Karnataka Circle for holding a wonderful Open Session in a remarkable manner.

 

Com. Ravi Shil Verma, President AIGETOA welcomed one and all and appreciated Com. H Y Andeli and team for creating a new height by holding the open session in a grand manner and requested his team to learn organizing skill from Com. H Y Andeli and other senior leaders.  He also mentioned that while discussing various issues of the executives he suggested of forming a common platform due to which the existence of united forum has been came into effect.  He mentioned that the decision to form the united forum with AIBSNLEA has taken us to new heights.  The wisdom of Prahlad Rai and P. Venugopal and their advice and have continuously followed and had never a feeling of working with a different association.  He mentioned that he has no regret and the issues has taken a U turn after joining hands together.  During the last three years, the achievements have been there because of this join effort.  The idea of amalgamation of energy of youngsters and experience of AIBSNLEA was the idea initially while forming the united forum.  He expected that at all level such feeling of togetherness and united should be made and reflected.  He mentioned that he is confident of resolving the issues pending.  He mentioned that we should follow and respect the MOU signed in its true spirit and work together and mentioned that there is no need of any apprehension that AIGETOA is different than AIBSNLEA. He mentioned that after leaving the hall, everyone should have a feeling that it is our united forum and we are together.

 

Com Prahlad Rai, GS AIBSNLEA mentioned that the very purpose of holding the joint session is to discuss the forthcoming membership verification and requested everyone to participate in the discussion and come out with innovative ideas to get success in the verification.  Now the time has come to prove that we are the number one association in the verification.   He mentioned that an MOU was signed between AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA and there is an understanding in the MOU about how to go ahead by keeping the unity.  Many joint CWCs and CHQ office bearers were held to discuss various issues and modalities of keeping the MOU in its true spirit. 

 

GS briefed about the activities taken place after forming the united forum.  He also briefed about all the pending issues taken up with the BSNL management, details of discussion taken with the BSNL management, ground for the decision of going ahead with the agitation programme for settlement of various issues mainly viz. E2-E7 pay scale, CPSU cadre hierarchy and implementation of Khan Committee, Pension contribution on actual basic etc, approach of the sister association on the issues, etc.   He mentioned that the members of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA throughout the country has fully participated in the agitation programme which has compelled the BSNL management to take the favorable decision.  The achievement was the result of the joint efforts of both AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA which has compelled the BSNL management, in spite of the efforts by other to sabotage the agitation. 

 

Now the membership verification is the major challenge.   Once the verification is over, BSNL management will discuss all the major issues with only number one association.  The supporting association will get only minor trade union facilities without any status and there will be no position for the third association.  Unless we become number one association, we cannot achieve the goal and settle the grievances of the executives and we will not get any desired result.  This is the serious concern which everyone has to think and discuss and come out with innovative ideas and methods.

 

The issue of how the MOU can be implemented and how to go ahead with is also to be discussed.  He opined to have a merged association by merging both together and have one association with one central body for the betterment of the executives and safeguard the interest of the executives.

 

Com. Amit Roy, AGS AIGETOA in his address stated that as far as the AIGETOA is concerned only three PPPs are the aim.  To achieve these three PPPs and goals, we alone struggled for many years and AIBSNLEA also struggled its own way to settle the issues.  Subsequently we thought of being together and due to the togetherness we could achieve many.  Now it is very near to achieve our goal and in the meantime the referendum has been notified.  He mentioned that we are united and somehow we could convince the CMD that the approach of the management is illogical.  CMD has agreed to the proposal of not keeping executives in 10 years in any level.    The joint session has been arranged to discuss the modalities and the united forum wanted to be the number one in the verification.

 

Com. Dr. G.K. Patil delegate from Maharashtra AIBSLNEA stated that the issue has to be taken seriously to flourish our executives.  Both the association should merge and work as one for the betterment of the executives and AIBSNLE has already have experience of merging 10 association in the past.  The amalgamation should take place after verification.

 

Com. Prasunkumar Mukhopadhay, CS AIBSNLEA Kolkata Telephones opined that the MOU was signed to achieve the Pay, Promotion and Pension.  It is the final stage to settle these three issues under the experienced leadership of Com. Prahlad Rai.  AISBNLEA was formed by merging 10 association and the leadership of AIBSNLEA has able experience to deal with the cases of all disciplines.   We should face the referendum in the name of AIBSNLEA first and sit and decide later about the merger of both the associations.  Our utmost agenda should be to defeat the sister associations in the referendum by honouring the MOU signed by us.

 

Com. Morodia, CS AIBSNLEA Rajasthan opined that there is a good co-ordination and understanding at all circles and should face the verification first and then go ahead with the merger proposal.

 

Com. Dr. V.P. Singh, CS, AIBSNLEA, BSNL Corporate Office we should expose the association working against the larger interest of the executives.  A co-ordination committee to be formed at all level.  Give a message of unity to the co-ordination committee.  List of resolved and unresolved issues are to be listed out and prioritize the issues based.  GS, AIBSNLEA leadership has very good experience, oratory capacity and good leaders of both the organisations should form a committee and work together.

 

Com.  Shivakumar, CS AIBSNLEA Tamil Nadu opined that the need of the hour is to amalgamate both the associations to defeat the unethical activities of the by reaching an understanding with sharing of posts of office bearers.  The verification should be faced after merging. 

 

Com. K C Jena CWC MEMBER AIBSNLEA from Odissa opined that we should analyze our strength and propagate the achievement and reach to the members.

 

Com. Satyajyoti Nath, CS AIGETOA, Assam personally opined that neither AIGETOA intent to participate in the verification nor interest to fight it alone. United forum should work together.  He has mentioned about the difficulties of AIGETOA members of Assam like not getting Rule 8 transfers and there cannot be any break through on the issue.  He mentioned that CHQ of both association should immediately get some positive result immediately.  He also briefed about various burning issues faced by the executives of Assam especially the members of AIGETOA. 

 

Com. Manjunath, All India Spokes Person, AIGETOA explained the limitations of the constitutions of both the associations and unless the modalities are worked out about seat sharing, we cannot move ahead.  Hence we have to decide about the future of amalgamation or going as it is.

Com. Guruprasad, CWC member, AIBSNLEA form Tamil Nadu Merger is required.  Do one, Do it today and Do it now.

 

Com. Biswajit Chakraborthy, AIBSNELEA Assam opined that AIGETOA should become the 11th association merging with AIBSNLEA.

 

Com. V K Paramasivam, Advisor, AIBSNLEA  opined that after few years, only the members of AIGETOA will remain in BSNL and will have to take the lead, as the members of AIBSNLEA will be retiring shortly.  In future the members of present AIGETOA will have to take care of cadres of PA/PS and AD (OL) and be the leader of the mass and every cadre.  He requested the AIGETOA comrades to merge with AIBSNLEA and take lead of the organization.

 

Com. Bangaru Doraiswami, CP AIBSNLEA Tamil Nadu opined that amalgamation should be done right now.

 

Com. P N Sharma CS AIGETOA, Rajasthan: said that only the supreme bodies of both bodies are to decide regarding the merger. We are to decide modalities for the referendum only. AIGETOA CHQ thinks that if merger is need of the hour we may go ahead for merger for a long term vision. And, this should be done before the referendum. A close group may decide the modalities of the merger and the ratio.  

 

Com. Amrendo Mitro, CTD AIBSNLEA: He said the AIBSNLEA is an association of ten amalgamated associations.

 

Com. K.K. Barsar, ACS, AIBSNLEA Rajasthan: He said the merger issue is so important that we should decide cautiously. We are already with AIGETOA. The coordination between AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA must be enriched at the level of SSA.

 

Com. Wasi CS AIGETOA Bihar: The management has issued notice for referendum as per the conspiracy of SNEA. The 1993 OM is the bible for constitution of Associations. BSNL should categorize the employees first.  This is the right time to amalgamate both the association and is the need of the hour. He said that one association can merge into other. One association should have its leader while the other should have its name. Since no body other than Shri Prahlad Rai can lead the forum, he suggested that AIBSNLEA should merge with AIGETOA under the leadership of Shri Prahlad Rai.

 

Com. Mathew, CS AIGETOA, Gujarat opined that all the AIGETOA members should enmass vote for AIBSNLEA.  AIGETOA should not lose its status.  After verification quota should be deducted from salary and pay to the AIGETOA part to them. 

 

Com. C.M. Saste, OS AIBSNLEA opined that the merger should be taken right now for the betterment of the executive's fraternity. 

 

Com. Subashish Guha CWC member AIBSNLEA Kolkata Telephones said both the associations should merge and lead the association by Com. Ravi Shil Verma after com. Prahlad Rai retired in the next year.

 

After detailed discussions house unanimously resolved that-

 

1.  AIGETOA will discuss with GM (SR) regarding their applicant status and to apply for referendum.

 

2. As per MOU, AIGETOA will support AIBSNLEA in referendum Process and AIBSNLEA will ask all the Direct Recruits who have joined AIBSNLEA to be enrolled in AIGETOA. This shall be followed by all Circles and Branch level in totality.

3. In partial modification of the earlier MoU, the Direct Recruits TTAs who have become JTOs shall also be enrolled by AIGETOA. AIBSNLEA once again reiterated its support to AIGETOA for extending distinct recognition for representation of Direct Recruits and issues.

 

4. AIGETOA will propose two DR JTOs for CHQ body of AIBSNLEA and similarly at Circle / Branch level.

 

5. One co-ordination committee of 10 members (5 members from each Association) will be formed at CHQ level to propose the merger of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA or new association immediately just after the referendum process is completed.

24.06.2016:      BSNL Corporate Office circulates that an OA has been filed by Shri Chet Ram & others Versus CMD, BSNL before Hon'ble CAT, Jodhpur Bench. The main grievance of the applicant in the OA is that "clause set forth in schedule in column 11 of JTO (T) RR-2014 is erroneous by which respondent department has arbitrarily provided for the absorption of officiating JTO's and making discrimination amongst its employees as it provides the double treatment for the appointment for the post of JTO against 50% internal quota by providing absorption to the screening test qualified & phase-I trained officiating JTO's and then LICE for remaining posts."

 

The Hon'ble CAT in its interim order dated 06.04.2016 has said "Heard counsel for applicant. We are not inclined to grant any other interim order other than that if at all any promotions are made, it will be subject to the result of the OA and all those promotees must be specifically informed of the existence of this OA, so that they can, if they want to get themselves, be impleaded".

 

To comply with the orders, all such promotes (Officiating JTO's, regularized as per provisions of new JTO (T) RR-2014) are informed of the existence of this OA, so that they can, if they want to get themselves, be impleaded. The case is listed for hearing on 04.07.2016. <<<<Click here for BSNL CO Letter>>>>> <<<<Click here for Hon'ble CAT Order>>>>>

24.06.2016:     Meeting with Member (Finance), Telecom Commission:

GS along with the members of Core Committee of the Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations met with Member (Finance) and discussed regarding:

 

A. GPF Payments to BSNL employees through CCA: We expressed our apprehensions regarding payment of GPF to BSNL employees through CCAs in the field units of BSNL. Member (Finance) confirmed that DoT is going to decide a policy for payment of GPF to BSNL employees through CCAs wherein she explained that the sanction of the GPF payment will be issued by the concerned SSA which will go to Circle Office then to CCA Office for payment. The CCA after examining the sanction will make the payment in the bank account of the concerned employee directly under intimation to the SSA. The payment will be released twice / thrice in a month. This experiment is started in Punjab Telecom Circle by today itself which can be seen and experienced.

 

B. Payment of pension contribution on actual basic of BSNL pensioners: We requested to take up the matter with Govt. for payment of pension contribution on actual basic of BSNL pensioners. Member (Finance) informed that the matter has already been taken up with the Govt. nodal ministries i.e. DoP&W, DoPT and DoE wherein DoE has clarified that in CDA scales the pay scales are on grade pay basis but in BSNL it is not there. Hence, the pension contribution to be made on the maximum of the IDA pay scale however, DoE has advised to take up the opinion of DoP&W and DoPT in this regard. And now the same has been sent to DoP&W and DoPT for clarification.

 

C. Payment of Salary of BSNL employees working in DoT on deputation, Electricity/Water Bills to BSNL from DoT: We requested for releasing the payment of Salary of BSNL employees working in DoT on deputation, Electricity/Water Bills to BSNL from DoT. Member (Finance) clarified that in TERM Cell of DoT, BSNL employees are working against the non-sanctioned posts which are to be sanctioned by DoT. But in CCAs, the employees on deputation are working against the sanctioned posts. Hence, there is no hurdle on payment in respect of these employees but there is a problem for TERM Cell employees with respect to their payment of salary from DoT. She further mentioned that it is logical that DoT should make the payment of Electricity / Water Bill and other maintenance charges to BSNL.

On the issue of implementation of E2 to E7 IDA Pay scales, Director (HR) informed that DoT made some queries on BSNL's proposal for replacing the existing scales by E2 to E7 IDA Pay Scales that what will be the financial Burdon on BSNL on implementation of the revised pay scales which has been replied to DoT that mainly the pension contribution payment from 01.01.2007 amounting about 364 Crores will be born by the BSNL. The reply has been sent to DoT.

 

Director (HR) further mentioned that the DoT has raised the objection in giving pay fitment benefit on each promotion in E9 scale and granting DNI on its actual date after time bound promotion by allowing options. DoT has advised that as per DoPT instructions DNI can be given only after completion of the service of one year. Hence, DoT is insisting to review of the fixations and make the recoveries of the excess amount paid.

 

We requested to settle the appeal cases of Comrade R.P. Shahu, SDE, MP Circle and Comrade A. Thomas, SDE, Rajasthan Circle at the earliest. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter.

He mentioned that while taking the decisions, the matter is discussed with all the leaders of unions and associations and exchange the views of both unions and management.    There are miles to go and it?s only a beginning. He remembered the days he worked in Mysuru. He shared his experience when he joined the organization in 1981 and the working condition of the organization.  He stated that he learned many things from the first officer with whom he worked on joining the organisation. He mentioned that he is lucky to have the executives like every one present in the auditorium.  Many important decisions have been taken by BSNL recently even though there was conflict on many issues.   We are here today as a fresh unit.   Whatever decisions to be taken will have to take today is the approach of the present BSNL management.  The roaming free service made BSNL to revive CM revival by adding one crore with MNP positive, CM revenue increased.  Night calling free service was the idea of Shri N K Gupta Director (CFA), which has arrested the decline of the landline. 

We are here to take BSNL further forward and the financial results are encouraging.  This year the operative profit is going to increase and within 2-3 years, BSNL will turn into profit making company.   He mentioned that he is confident that with the present work force of 2,10,000 employees, BSNL can turn into profit.  He stated that the only asset of the BSNL is its HR.
