This was also one of the factor for absorption in BSNL but now on the pretext of financial constraints the medical bills of BSNL serving employees and pensioners are pending months together. we requested to release timely funds against medical claims. Some employees are interested to switch over to CGHS Scheme for BSNL MRS but they are not being considered due to confusion in code number by the respective CGHS dispensaries. This issue needs to settled in DoT level and those who are allowed to switch over CGHS Scheme their one time medical fee reimbursement from BSNL is also getting delayed. We requested CMD BSNL for his kind intervention for the settlement of above mentioned issues. CMD BSNL after detailed discussions assured to look into matter.

Singh, GS, NFTE is on tour. The following issues were discussed in detail wherein CMD BSNL appraised that a very important HOCC is being held in BSNL CO on 24th & 25th Sept. 2018. in this meeting mainly the developments activities and strategies to earn more revenue will be discussed. 

"BSNL At Your Door steps" will be launched on 24.09.2018: The AUAB has already taken decision to conduct "BSNL At Your Doorsteps" movement, to boost BSNL's revenue collection, by stepping up sales and marketing of the Company. The AUAB has also desired that, this movement should be jointly launched by the AUAB and the Management. This issue was discussed in today's meeting.

Finally, the following decisions are taken.

a.      "BSNL At Your Doorsteps" will be jointly launched by the AUAB.

b.     The inauguration of this movement will take place at BSNL Corporate Office on 24th September, 2018 evening. All the CGMs will also participate in this launching. (HOCC is taking place in Corporate Office on 24th & 25th September, 2018).

CMD BSNL also told that he will try to bring BSNL's Brand Ambassador on this occasion.

CMD BSNL will handover flood relief amount to the CM, Kerala.

The AUAB has already requested the CMD BSNL to deduct one day's basic pay from willing officials. In today's meeting the representatives requested that the deducted amount should be handed over by the CMD BSNL, to the Chief Minister of Kerala.

Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL: The representatives expressed their concern over the undue delay in the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL and also over the network congestion prevailing in many parts of the country. They drew the attention of the CMD to media reports, which have quoted the Hon'ble MoS(C) as saying that, 4G spectrum would be allotted to BSNL only in December, 2018. The CMD BSNL told that, he is taking all out efforts for the early allotment of 4G spectrum and recently he has again written an emotional letter to Secy(T), DoT for immediate allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL which has 40 watt Tx capacity whereas BSNL's 2G/3G spectrum is having 20Watt Tx capacity  and this is the urgent need of hour.

Subsidiary Tower Company: The AUAB is opposing the Subsidiary Tower Company tooth and nail. Decision has been taken to stall the Board meeting, and also for total walk out by the Executives and Non- Executives, in case Board meeting is scheduled, for giving approval for the appointment of CMD of Subsidiary Tower Company. This issue came up for discussion today.

Consolidation is taking place in a big way in the telecom sector. All the small operators have closed down their business. After the recent merger of Vodafone and Idea, there are only 4 operators in each circle. BSNL, Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone - Idea. Under these circumstances, there will be very less business for the Subsidiary Tower Company and now it has no relevance to operate tower subsidiary company.  Now there is no sustainability of tower subsidiary company. The BSNL Management has informed this to the government, through it's letter, written a last week only. This was explained by the CMD BSNL in today's meeting.

Outsourcing of passive maintenance of BSNL's towers:The representatives expressed their concern at the outsourcing. The CMD BSNL replied that at present the "uptime" of BSNL towers is only 80% - 85%. The uptime will increase to 97%, due to this outsourcing. Further, BSNL will save Rs.100 crore by way of maintenance expenditures through outsourcing. While the active maintenance of towers would be continued to be done by BSNL, only the passive maintenance, including provisioning  of batteries, engine alternators, diesel, payment of EB bill, etc., would be done by the outsourced party.

It is understood that the Competent Authority is not happy due to filing of the Contempt cases against CMD BSNL, Director(HR) and other Officers for issuing the promotion orders on JTO to SDE and SDE to DE. The contempt cases have been filed in the Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam and Hon'ble CAT, Chandigarh by some DR. JTOs and Shri Ramesh Kumar, SDE & District Secretary, SNEA Rothak, Harayana respectively. So it seems that till the time contempt cases are not withdrawn or disposed off no upgradation of posts will be taken by the Competent Authority.

We explained that our AOs are waiting for promotion for the last 15 years.

She also mentioned that the earlier proposal to upgrade the post in CAO grade is pending in Pers. cell for clearance. After the clearance and approval of the competent authority the upgradation to CAO posts will be considered. She assured for early issuance of the promotion order to fill up the vacant CAO posts the VCRs of the eligible AOs have been called from vigilance cell. We requested to issue promotion order subject to availability of VC at circle level.

We persuaded in the Pers. Cell to the concern officers for giving early clearance to the AO to CAO promotions against vacant CAO posts and upgradation to CAO posts.

30.08.2018  Advocate report on the ITS Absorption Case in Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi: This is to inform you that the captioned matter was listed today (i.e. 29.08.2018) as Item No. 9 in Court No. 1 before a Bench Comprising of Hon'ble Justice (Retd.) Narasimha Reddy and Hon'ble Member Ms. Aradhana Johri at the Principal Bench, Central Administrative Tribunal.
When the matter was called out I sought a passover on behalf of Mr. Rao. However, the Bench was not inclined to passover the matter.
Accordingly, I apprised the Bench of the facts of the matter and the decision of the Hon'ble High Court in W.P. 22515/2012 decided on 17.04.2012 and the mandamus issued therein. Thereafter, the Bench was informed of the subsequent Orders passed by the High Court whereby the extensions sought by DOT was rejected. On reading the Impugned Orders dated 11.03.2013 issued by DOT & BSNL, the Bench was of the view that there seems to be partial compliance, and in any event if the same are in violation of the Orders passed by the High Court then the appropriate remedy would lie before the High Court. On this, I informed the Bench of the earlier Writ Petition that had been filed by the Applicants, whereby they were directed to seek an appropriate remedy, which was before the Central Administrative Tribunal. The Hon'ble Bench also opined that the Contempt Proceedings were pending in the High Court and the Applicants should agitate the issue therein. I submitted that the remedy available to the Applicants under the Contempt proceedings is separate from the present proceedings since the Court hearing the Contempt can either order punishment or imprisonment, and cannot grant the relief of quashing the Impugned Orders dated 11.03.2013, which can only be done by the Tribunal. The Bench was also informed of the Order passed by the High Court directed the CAT to proceed with the OA and that the pendency of the Contempt should not come in way of the OA.
After hearing the parties, the Hon'ble Bench was of the view that until the matter is pending in the High Court, the CAT cannot give any direction since ultimately it would be bound by the decision of the High Court. Accordingly, the Original Application has been disposed of with liberty to file a fresh OA after the decision of the High Court.

BRIEF REPORT OF THE 3rd CENTRAL WORKING COMMITTEE MEETING OF AIBSNLEA HELD AT DeHRADUN FROM 18th August, 2018 to 19th August, 2018:

 

The 3rd Central Working Committee Meeting of AIBSNLEA held at  'Dev Bhoomi' Dehradun, Uttaranchal on 18th August, 2018 and 19th August, 2018. The Flag Hosting was done by the Com. President and the General Secretary. After the flag Hosting, Com. President in his opening remarks told about the achievement of the AIBSNLEA for the promotion of more than 12000 Executives in last one month span. He requested all to use their positive gesture in enhancing the membership of the AIBSNLEA. He requested all to go through the agenda and involve themselves for the positive participation in the CWC deliberations till end for getting the fruitful results. Com. President mentioned that due to the historical achievements, the believe of executives on AIBSNLEA has increased.

Com. Brij Mohan Dhyani, CS Uttaranchal and Host of the CWC Meet, delivered the welcome address. In his address Com. Dhyani welcomed all guests coming to Dev Bhoomi- Dehradun, from all nook and corners of the country. He told that although the UTTARANCHAL is small Circle but he has tried his level best to make the CWC a comfortable one. CP Uttaranchal Com. L.K. Thapaliyal Ji welcomed the President CHQ by garlanding. CWC Uttaranchal Bisit Ji welcomed the GS AIBSNLEA by garlanding. All CHQ office bearers, Advisors and consultants were warm welcomed by garlanding the Host Circle. Haldwani branch and CWC Uttaranchal Bisit ji presented shawl to GS. All CWC participants were welcomed by presenting Uttaranchal traditional CAP.

After the welcome program Com President appealed all to go through the agenda and tell about the modification. CWC approved the agenda program. One minute silence was observed in the memory of departed comrades.

Self introduction was made by all the comrades on the appeal of President CHQ. All the CWC participants made their self introduction.

After the self introduction the CWC Dehradun confirmed the minutes of the CWC Thiruvanatpuram. CWC Dehradun unanimously confirmed the minutes.

Com. President appealed all the Circle Secretaries to deposit the legal and Diary payments.

Com. Ganeshan from Chennai donated Rs 15000 to CHQ.

Most of the Circles actively participated and placed their report in the CWC Meet at Dehradun expect A&N Circle, ALTTC GZB Circle and J&K Circle due to unavoidable reasons.

After completion of the Circle Secretary reports, Com. President requested Com. GS to Summed up.

Com. GS Summed up with the reply of the queries raised by all the Circle Secretaries.

On the issue of the DGM to Jt. GM promotion, Com. GS informed that we are perusing the case. Com. GS told that after the persuasions of AIBSNLEA only the promotions of JTO to SDE LDCE quota (about 2000) has issued. In SCF 3000 JTOs of 1999 batch have promoted. DRs were not been taken into consideration by the intervention of SCF by the SNEA.  We demanded to promote list No. 8 and 9 and Management agreed on list no. 8 but SNEA raised the issue to bring parity among the cadres in promotions, which has derailed the process. Earlier SNEA was impressing the management to implement the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy w.e.f. 31st July, 2018 but when they get failed in getting its implementation then to stop the promotions through CPCs they demanded parity. The fact remains that there was never parity among the various cadres in promotions due to various reasons even that prevailed in DoT. Management got disappointment due to such attitude of the Majority Association and stop the promotion through CPCs. AIBSNLEA continued to pursue  with CMD BSNL , Director(HR) , GM(Pers.) for issuing the promotions through CPCs in all disciplines and to maintain equalization in the cadres as far as possible. AIBSNLEA also extended its sincere gratitude and thanks to the managements for issuing 12,000 executives promotions within a month time, which has became a history.  AIBSNLEA is also demanded implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy but before its implementation all the existing eligible executives should be promoted to the next grade as per the existing RRs. We also briefed the management that in case CPSU CH  is implanted without conducting CPCs there will be court cases and in case the stay order is granted then BSNL Management will not be in a position to issue any promotion order through CPCs or CPSU CH. BSNL Management has appreciated our concern and assured to examine our apprehensions and for an early  action in this regard.

AIBSNLEA  efforts will continue to ensure holding of CPCs for the promotion for all the eligible executives before implementation of CPCU CH to provide  their service waitage  and financial benefits.

Com. GS told that AIBSNLEA played a big role in vacating the stay on JAO to AO promotion and 2300 promotions took place. In AO to CAO Court case BSNL Management filed the MA on our persuasion only. Stay order date on catch up Rule of DE to DGM hearing is 05.09.2018. DE to DGM contempt case date of hearing is 07.09.2018. AIBSNLEA impledment in AO to CAO case will derail the process.  GS informed that we will pursue the matter of GM (TR) in AP Circle. GS assured to take up the issue of posting new staff at BRBRAITT.

Regarding one day salary to Kerala calamity, Com. GS informed that we will support the donation of one day salary to Kerala Calamity. GS explained that the meeting at Jaipur was extremely necessary due to MV and was held by the approval of President and CHQ Office Bearers at ND. GS explained that the meeting at Delhi was also necessary for the issuance of the promotions before 30.06.2018. So it was not the wasteful expenditure at that time. To have second line leadership, Com. GS explained that AIBSNLEA have five Asstt. General Secretaries along with 15 CHQ Office Bearers who are leading the organization and they are available to serve the association as second line leadership if required.

Regarding the legal fund Com. GS told that now the subscription is directly coming to CHQ so that we have funds but there are so many legal cases AIBSNLEA is fighting. Now Rule 206 has been misinterpreted by the BSNL CO. Thus seprate legal fund is must.

GS assured to take up the matter of Hungama Service with Management. GS assured to takeup the matter of delayed GPF payment in HP Circle. GS informed that 28.08.2018 Board Meeting the AD (OL) case will be taken up.  Com.

GS assured that we will discuss the case of special recruitment drive. GS asked Com. Sukaisema to send the letter of CGM NE-II for tenure problem.

This is misinterpretation by the Pers. Cell. We requested Director (HR) to have an independent advice from the ASG of India on the plan of the Pers. Cell for the implementation of the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgments dated 21.01.2015 and 14.12.2017.

She also assured us that on receipt of the advice from the ASG the implementation plan will be reviewed and modified accordingly.

 

AIBSNLEA is consulting and taking legal advice from its Advocate who have pleaded the case in the Hon'ble Supreme Court as well as in the Expert Committee and accordingly on the that basis further action will be taken immediately.

 

Conduction of CPCs in all the disciplines:

We further requested Director (HR) to conduct CPCs of all the eligible executives in all the disciplines to be promoted to the next grade before implementation of the CPSU CH. Director (HR) directed GM (Pers) to put up the proposal for conducting the CPCs immediately to CMD BSNL for approval. GM (Pers) assured an early action in this regard.

03.08.2018  Meeting with Director (HR), BSNL Board, New Delhi: 

GS, President, AGS (HQ) and AGS (DR) met Director (HR), BSNL Board and extended  invitation for attending the Open Session of the CWC meeting being held at Dehradun. Director (HR) accepted our invitation and told that she will try to attend the CWC of AIBSNLEA, Dehradun. We further discussed regarding:

A) Implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL: We apprise Director (HR) about the AUAB meeting with Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) held on 01.08.2018. We informed her that the Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) has assured to discuss our demands with Secretary Telecom on 3.8.2018. We also mentioned about our meeting with CMD BSNL held on yesterday wherein CMD BSNL had mentioned that the Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) has held discussions with him also wherein he has categorically mentioned that DOT should decide payment of Pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the Pay scale and there after the implementation of 3rd PRC recommendation in BSNL should be left to the BSNL Management. Director (HR) also endorsed the same thought and advised us to continuously pursue with MOSC (I/C) and Secretary (T).  

B) CPCs to be conducted in all disciplines for the eligible Executives before the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy:  We again extended our sincere gratitude and thanks to Director (HR) for issuing promotion orders for 12000 Executives within a period of one month. But we expressed our serious concern against the statement of GM(Pers) to limit the CPCs up to the year 2005 only and not for upgrading the posts to promote the eligible executives of all disciplines before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. Director (HR) instructed her OSD to have a meeting today afternoon itself with GM (Pers) in the presence of GM (SR) to examine and calculate actual requirement of up-gradation of the posts up to a particular year taking as a reference point i.e. Last CPC conducted or the Year of Recruitment in all disciplines.    

C) Implementation of Rule-206 of SDE Seniority: We expressed our serious concern against the mis-interpretation of Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement on Rule-206 of SDEs Seniority case by Pers Cell of BSNL Corporate Office. We told Director (HR) that we had requested her self to seek legal opinion from Senior Advocate. But, unfortunately, Pers Cell BSNL Corporate Office never took the legal opinion from an Advocate and instead as per the advice of legal cell of BSNL Corporate Office has taken the approval from the competent authority. Thus the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement has been made in fructuous which will cause further litigation. Also will invite vigilance complaint against the mishandling of the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement for which the reasons are best known to Pers Cell. We further requested Director (HR) for her kind intervention and giving a direction to the Pers Cell to seek the Legal opinion from an Advocate instead of depending on the Legal Advice given by the Legal Cell of BSNL Corporate Office. Director (HR) assured to look in to the matter.

D) Clarification on transfers on looking after arrangements in Maharashtra Circle: We expressed our serious concern toward non-issuance of the clarification on transfers on looking after arrangements in Maharashtra Circle by the Pers. Cell. GM (SR) informed that he is going to issue a reminder in this regard shortly. 

E) Harassment of AIBSNLEA Office Bearers in Amritsar SSA of Punjab Circle: We expressed our serious concern over the harassment of AIBSNLEA Office Bearers in Amritsar SSA of Punjab Circle by the SSA Administration. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter

A) Implementation of 3rd PRC  with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL: On the query of CMD BSNL regarding AUAB meeting with Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) held yesterday, we appraised him that the Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) has assured to discuss our demands with Secretary Telecom on 3.8.2018 . CMD BSNL mentioned that the matter was discussed by him also with the Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) wherein he has requested that DOT should decide payment of Pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the Pay scale and there after the implementation of 3rd PRC recommendation in BSNL should be left to the BSNL Management. However he assured that in case he is invited by the Hon'ble MOSC(I/C)  during the discussion with Secretary Telecom on this issue he will further suggest the same.

B) CPCs to be conducted in all disciplines for the eligible Executives before the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy :  We  further extended our sincere  gratitude and thanks to CMD BSNL for issuing promotion orders for 12000 Executives within a period of one month. But we expressed our serious concern against the statement of GM(Pers) to limit the CPCs up to the year 2005 only and not for upgrading the posts to promote the eligible executives of all disciplines before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. CMD BSNL advised that the matter should be discussed with the DIR(HR) who has clarity in this regard. He further mentioned that no such decision is taken at his level to limit the promotions up to the year 2005 only.  However  AIBSNLEA will discuss the matter with DIR(HR) shortly.

C) Implementation of Rule-206 of SDE Seniority : We expressed our serious concern against the mis-interpretation of  Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement on Rule-206 of SDEs Seniority case by  Pers Cell of BSNL Corporate Office. We requested the DIR(HR) to seek the legal opinion from a Senior Advocate accordingly Dir(HR) directed the Pers Cell of the BSNL Corporate Office to seek the legal opinion from  an  Advocate  but the Pers Cell BSNL  Corporate Office never took the legal opinion from an Advocate but as per the legal advice of legal cell of BSNL Corporate Office has taken the approval from the Competent authority. Thus the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement has been made in fictitious which will cause further litigation.   Also will invite vigilance complaint against the mishandling of the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement for which the reasons are best known to Pers Cell. We further requested CMD BSNL for his kind intervention and giving a direction to the Pers Cell to seek the Legal opinion from an Advocate instead of depending on the Legal Advice given by the Legal Cell of BSNL Corporate Office, CMD BSNL assured to look in to the matter.

D)  Grant of Pay  Rs.22820/- to the JTOs/JAOs post recruited 2007 : We requested the CMD BSNL to consider for granting of Pay Scale of Rs.22820/- to the JTOs/JAOs post recruited 2007 to remove the pay anomaly after implementation of the 2nd PRC report and to avoid their huge Pay loss.

01.08.2018  AUAB meets Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) in the Parliament House: The representatives of the All Unions and Associations of BSNL met Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) in the Parliament House today. Shri M.B. Rajesh, MP, Kerala, has taken the initiative to arrange the meeting between the AUAB and the Hon'ble MoSC(I/C), and he was also present during the discussion.

The AUAB leaders who participated in today's meeting are Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU, Com.Sheshadri, Dy.GS, NFTE BSNL, Com.Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com.K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA,  Com.Ravi Shil Verma, GS, AIGETOA,  Com.Suresh Kumar, GS, BSNL MS, Com. S.D. Sharma, GS, ATM BSNL and Com.J. Vijaya Kumar, Dy.GS, TEPU.

The AUAB leaders expressed their serious concern against the non-implementation of the assurances given by Hon'ble MoSC(I/C), in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, with the representatives of AUAB. They further pointed out that, during the last five months, not even a single meeting has been granted by the Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) and the Secretary (T), to discuss about the implementation of the assurances.

1)  Assurance was given by Hon'ble MoSC(I/C), to get the affordability clause of 3rd PRC relaxed, w.r.t. BSNL. However, the DoT has not started the preparation of the Cabinet Note for getting the affordability clause of the 3rd PRC relaxed for BSNL.

2)  Direction was given by Hon'ble MoSC(IC) to the Secretary(T), to take action for collecting pension contribution from BSNL on actual basic pay, as per the government order, instead of the maximum of the pay scale. DoT has not taken any action in this regard till date.

3)  Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) directed the Secretary, Telecom, in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, to take necessary action for revision of pension of BSNL Pensioners. No action has been taken so far.

4)  Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) gave assurance in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, for allocation of 4G Spectrum to BSNL, but so far same is not allotted to BSNL.

After discussion on the above issues, the Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) stated that the issue of 4G Spectrum allocation is in the hands of the government, and that it would be done shortly. Regarding pay revision, pension contribution on actual basic pay and revision of pension of BSNL Pensioners, the Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) assured that he would discuss all these issues with the Secretary, Telecom, on 3rd August, 2018.

Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) further stated that the employees should earn revenue for BSNL, in addition to raising the demands. The AUAB leaders replied that they are giving tough competition to Reliance JIO, who is providing services based on predatory pricing. Shri M.B. Rajesh, MP, extended his thanks to the Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) for granting the meeting and discussing the issues.

We extended our sincere gratitude and thanks to Hon'ble MoSC (I/C) for granting the meeting and also extended thanks to Shri M.B. Rajesh, MP, for arranging the meeting.  <<<<Click here for glimpses>>>

01.08.2018: Meeting with GM(Pers) : GS, President, met  GM(Pers) and discussed regarding

A) Regarding JTO to SDE Promotion:   We demanded that all the eligible JTOs should be promoted to SDE (T) by filling-up of   7500 vacant SDEs posts. GM(Pers) informed that the process has already been started to fill up all the vacant SDEs Posts. The necessary data from most of the Circles have been received.

He further mentioned that the Competent Authority  has advised to expedite CPCs in those cadres where the vacancies are available. The earlier upgradation in some cadres was done to overcome with the pending court cases. We further pleaded that to bring equilibrium among the cadres the upgradation/restructuring in the cadres is needed. GM(Pers) mentioned that now the Competent Authority has desired to bring equalization among the cadres,  only  up to the year 2005 as a reference point of Last CPC conducted or the Year of Recruitment so that upgradation in the cadres can be avoided.

It seems that the Competent Authority has taken such decision under the pressure mounted by some Association to bring parity among the cadres up to the year 2013 of JAO to AO Promotion which is not practically possible in all the cadres without upgradations. Perhaps the Management has taken such decision to limit promotions up to the year 2005 instead of year 2010 and thereafter. We strongly opposed such decision and mentioned that such decision will  disappoint and demotivate thousands of Executives at this stage those who are eagerly waiting for their promotion through CPCs. GM (Pers) further mentioned that the matter may be discussed with the Competent Authority only to revise the decision.

B) SDE to DE promotions  :  We requested  that the Promotion orders should be issued to reduce stagnation in the cadre of SDE (T) by promoting all the eligible SDEs promoted up to the year 2010. GM(Pers) mentioned that at  present no exercise is being made for the promotion from SDE to DE wherein upgradation is needed and the same is not agreed by the Competent Authority now.

C) Regarding AO to CAO promotion : GM(Pers) mentioned that  promotions from AO to CAO can be issued against the vacant CAO posts only after the vacation of the stay order on promotion from Hon'ble Chandigarh CAT. Now upgradation is not accepted by the Competent Authority.

D) DE to DGM Promotion: We requested for issuing DE to DGM promotion. GM(Pers) mentioned that the promotion orders from DE to DGM can be issued after the vacation of the stay order on promotion from Hon'ble Chandigarh CAT on catch up Rule. The case is listed for hearing in the Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh on 7.9.2018 along with AO to CAO case.

E) Restructuring of AD(O/L) cadre:  We requested GM(Pers) for issuing the restructuring order of AD(O/L) cadre as the clearance has been received from DoT. GM(Pers) mentioned  that it will be put up to the BSNL Board for approval and thereafter order will be issued. We informed that all the earlier Restructuring proposals were only approved by the Management Committee of the BSNL Board. GM(Pers) assured to look in to the matter.

Some Association in the name of parity in the promotions among all the cadres has tried to derail the  process of CPCs  and always mounting pressure on Management for the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and also opposing  promotion of Executives through CPCs pleading that BSNL is loosing money  due to one additional increment benefit in the promotions through CPCs, And  threatening the BSNL Management to stop CPCs otherwise they will go on Agitation, which has become a routine threat from them. Some Officers having over jealousy attitude and sitting in the BSNL Management are also happy with this kind of situation where the Group 'B' level Executives continue to stagnate in one cadre for more than 15 years.

AIBSNLEA efforts will continue to get promoted all the eligible executives to the next higher post before implementation of CPSU CH. AIBSNLEA efforts have already yielded results in getting released 12,000 executives promotions despite of many hurdles. Let us, come together to defeat the such negative forces in BSNL.
