Meeting with Addl. Secretary
GS and President along with the GS and
President of AIRBSNLEWA met Addl. Secretary (T), DoT and
A Implementation of 3rd PRC
recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL:
We requested for implementation of 3rd
PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL as per
the BSNL Board’s decision which is already sent to DoT for
approval and issuance of Presidential Directives. AST
mentioned that the BSNL’s proposal on 3rd PRC
recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL is being
processed. During the discussions, the AST was responsive.
B Payment of Pension contribution on
actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale:
We requested to consider payment of pension contribution on
actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale. AST
mentioned that the BSNL’s proposal in this regard was
considered and decided that DoT can not recommend payment of
pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of
the pay scale to DoE in view of the fact the pension
contribution paid by BSNL for their employees is on
different substantive grade pay scales and thereafter the
employee is being retired in higher scale. So initially the
pension contribution was paid in lesser amount to DoT DoT as
per the lower scale. We further pleaded that the 6th
CPC in the year 2006 had recommended pension contribution to
be taken on actual basic pay of the employee. In view of
that, it should be considered on actual basic but AST was
firm on his decision.
C Revision of the Pension of BSNL
Pensioners: We requested AST to
take an early action for revision of the pension of the BSNL
pensioners who are drawing Govt. Pension under Rule 37A. We
explained that Sr. DDG (Estt), DoT is mentioning that the
revision of pension of BSNL pensioners will be considered
after the pay revision of BSNL serving employees on
implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations otherwise, there
will be a disparity in the pension of the BSNL pensioners
who will retire later on. AST after giving patient hearing
told that we will look into the mater for an early action in
this regard. GS, AIRBSNLEWA gave a letter to AST in this
regard which he marked immediately to the concerned section
for taking an early action.
D Additional increment case on post
based proposition under EPP:
AST categorically mentioned that the matter is sub-judice so
he can not make any comment on this issue.
E Restructuring of AD (OL) cadre in
BSNL: We requested to give
clearance to BSNL on restructuring of AD (OL) cadre. AST
assured to look into.
Meeting with PGM(Pers) ,
BSNL CO on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy
GS, President, AGS (HQ),
AGS (FIN ) and AGS (DR) met with PGM (Pers.) and discussed
about proposed Draft CPSU cadre hierarchy. PGM (Pers.)
initiated the discussion by reiterating the MC direction that CPSU proposal is being discussed with associations to make
policy more employee and organisation centric. We told that
response submitted by AIBSNLEA contains para wise
suggestions, by considering them Policy can be made beneficial
for both employee and organisation.
We reiterated our stand
that all pending CPCs should be completed and promotion
orders should be issued before implementation of CPSU cadre
hierarchy and priority should be given to conduct CPCs first
to fill up all the vacant post of Group-'A' and Group-' B'. Pers.
cell need to take legal opinion wherever required, to break
the stalemate in promotions in various cadres as per DOP&T
guidelines on SC/ST rosters implementation.
PGM (Pers.) assured to
work out some way to complete the CPCs processes and issue
promotion orders and simultaneously finalise the CPSU
We strongly opposed the MT
recruitment provision at STS level in the CPSU cadre
hierarchy. PGM (Pers.) told that
management trainee is need of the organisation. We mentioned
that AIBSNLEA will never accept MT at STS level.
We categorically told that MT recruitment at STS level
will block the career prospects of all the existing
executives at JTO / JAO and SDE / AO level and they will retire at AGM
level only. If management feels that BSNL need market talent
then recruit MT in Sales, Marketing, HR and Legal etc. at JTO/JAO level only. Engineering and Finance vertical are
already having executives at JTO / JAO equivalent to
Management Trainee. Along with this, If management feels that
there is requirement at policy making level, BSNL may
recruit higher management professionals at GM level with
suitable experience and probation.
We also opposed ignorance
of length of service and seniority in proposed draft and
increase of resend period for AGM grade from 7 years to 12
years. Residency period from SDE to AGM and
equivalent cadre should be maximum 7 years only.
We suggested the
benchmarks should be on basis of Khan Committee report and
numeric based to avoid huge dropping.
We also suggested that
implemention of date of CPSU Policy
should be from the date of last CPC held in that cadre
instead of 01.01.2017, otherwise it will not be beneficial to the
executives in the Cadre (s) having more than 20 years of service.
The executives already in
E5 scales should be given the designation of Jt. DGM
immediately as per Khan Committee report.
We suggested that before
going to any final decision all cadre controlling
authorities like Civil , Electrical , Arch, Finance, TF and
CSS etc. should be consulted and taken care of their views
/ suggestions also.
We further suggested that Pers. cell may convene a joint meeting of all executive
associations for more deliberation and making a consensus on CPSU policy which is more employee and organisation centric.
At last we requested PGM (Pers)
that he should go through our view and suggestion with open
mind to make CPSU Cadre hierarchy to become reality. He
assured to apprise AIBSNLEA views to BSNL management
committee for consideration.
AIBSNLEA will have a meeting
with Addl. Secretary (T), DoT tomorrow at 14.30 Hrs and will
have discussions with PGM (Pers.) on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy
draft proposal submitted by AIBSNLEA tomorrow morning at

further requested him that BSNL Board has already approved
that proposal on implementation of 3rd PRC
recommendations in BSNL and has sent the proposal to DoT for
approval wherein your kind intervention is required in
getting exemption on the affordability clause from Govt. We
also quoted the example of FCI which is also a Govt.
converted PSU and was formed with a specific agenda and
exempted from the affordability clause. Similarly, BSNL
should also be exempted from the affordability clause since
it was also formed from 1.10.2000 with a specific agenda on
the basis of NTP-1999 to provide Telecom Services to the
customers on affordable rates and to ensure national
security. Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) appreciated our concern and

on this issue and thereafter she may be apprised. We further
requested that CPCs should be expedited immediately subject
to outcome of the court judgments. Director (HR) assured to
look into the matter.

(c) Request for transfer / posting /

The pros and cons on implementation of the Draft Rectt./Promotion
Rule, proposing Time bound functional promotion upto AGM
grade for all cadres / streams are as under:-.
1.2: The modified policy shall be implemented w.e.f.
modified policy implementing w.e.f. 01.01.2017 will provide
time bound functional promotion upto AGM level which will
benefit the newly recruited executives, recruited after
modified policy implementing w.e.f. 01.01.2017 will not give
benefit to the senior executives in the cadre having more
than 20 years of service which will cause frustration and
discontentment among them. For example, one JTO recruited in
the year 1995 and completed 21 years of service is still
waiting his first functional promotion as a SDE and one JTO
recruited in the year 2011 completed 5 years of service will
get SDE promotion together. No service weightage to the
senior executive is ensured.
1.3: On approval of the policy, all existing RR in the grade
of SDE /equivalent will be treated as scrapped and MSRR 2009
will be modified to the extent that promotion of AGM/DE
Grade in all the schedule-IA,
IB, IC & ID shall be treated to be deleted. Remaining
portion of MSRR shall be continued to be followed as per the
existing provision. MT recruitment will continue as per
the existing provision of Recruitment Rule of MT.
MT recruitment at STS level as per the existing provisions
of recruitment rule of MT, It may help in filling up Top
level SAG/HAG level post on fast track method through MTs of
outside and inside quote. Few of Group B level executives
will also get a chance to become MT through this
MT recruitment at STS level will block the career
progression of Group B level executives as we have
experienced in DOT setup through JTS OF ITS Grup A
recruitment rules 1991. Where in one DR JTO of DOT used to
retire as Adhoc DE after completing 37-38 years of service.
The similar situation will develop in BSNL after the
introduction of MT recruitment.
1.4: Powers for relaxation/ modification/ amendment to these
rules will vest with the Management committee of BSNL Board.
will provide easy path to BSNL management to
relax/modify/amendment to these rules with the approval of
management committee of BSNL Board.
BSNL management, as its own or under the unforeseen
pressures may any time relax/modify/amend these rules with
the approval of BSNL MC which may be in the interest of
executives or against. These rules are approved by the BSNL
Board and cleared by DOT may not be allowed to BSNL
management to make such provisions since the pension payment
is being made by DOT.
3.0: Authorized strength of the Service: The authorized
strength of the executives in various cadre/stream shall be
as per the provisional HR plan
per Deloite recommendations the sanction posts of Group A
and B level executives will be reduced the wage payment
liability of BSNL through the proposed HR
per new HR plan based on Deloite recommendations the huge
number of sanctioned posts of Group A and B will be reduced
which will adversely affect the career progression of BSNL
executives by way of stagnation due to non-availability of
5.1: All the existing Executives up to AGM/DGM(Adhoc) shall
continue to be considered for financial up-gradation to the
next higher scale upto E-6 scale on completion of 5 years of
service from the date of placement in lower scale through
conduction of CPC. The benchmarks considered for financial
up-gradation shall be as per the prescribed provisions in
the schedule. The new Benchmarks shall be applied to those
executives whose financial up-gradations are due w.e.f.
stringent benchmark will filtered the executives and the
less number of executives will be promoted to the higher
post to reduce to number.
stringent benchmark will block the career prospect of
majority executives thus the spirit of time bound promotion
on functional basis to all executives will be defeated.
Considering this, the benchmark proposed by Khan Committee
was appropriate of functional promotions.
5.3 II: All the executives eligible for promotion for a
vacancy year i.e. promotion under SCF, for which the result
of the LDCE (other channel of promotion) has been issued and
promotion order is pending, the promotion of executives of
both the channel shall be considered deemed to have been
promoted before 1.1.2017 and they shall be treated en-bloc
senior to the executives promoted as per this Rule.
promotion of executives of both the channel shall be
considered deemed to have been promoted before 1.1.2017 and
they shall be treated en-bloc senior to the executives
promoted as per this Rule. It will depend upon the year to
executives of LDCE quota appeared through a particular
vacancy year will continue to claim their seniority along
with the vacancies of SCF quota. It may invite litigations
and derail the process.
12.0: The executive shall join the place of posting on
promotion within 40 days of the issue of the order of
promotion by BSNL CO. The period of 40 days may be extended
in exceptional and deserving case, in the interest of
service, where the Administrative requirement so demands
with the approval of appointing authority. In case the
Executives who are granted functional promotion but fails to
join the promoted grade within the time or decline
promotion, then Management reserves the right to forfeit his
promotion and executive shall not be considered for
functional promotion or financial up-gradation to higher
scale for next one Year or next CPC whichever is later, from
the date of deemed refusal (after 40 days) or from date of
application of refusal.
Pros and Cons:
If on promotion outside circle one is forced to refuse due
to medical/ family issues, he will stagnate in his own pay
scale as there is no financial upgradation. This type of
situation should be relaxed and genuinely should be
16.0: New designations for Executives: In the Policy new
Designation has been incorporated and shall hereafter be
followed at all levels at H.Q./Circle/SSA etc.
Pros and Cons:
Khan committee has no where suggested Sr. SDE as functional
promotion and tightening the norms by deciding even one
"Average" as disqualification in promotion for JTO, SDE, Sr.
SDE, DE cadres i.e. for the span of 20 years. We strongly
submits that there is no need to alive the Sr. SDE cadre. By
this inclusion the Executives will be derailed from their
justified promotions and will be bound to remain in the same
pay scale for 10 years, which is the violation of EPP. We
strongly oppose such inclusion.

President met with PGM(EW), BSNL
Corporate Office, New Delhi and congratulated him on
assuming the high office of PGM(EW), BSNL C.O. New Delhi and
assured him our full cooperation. PGM(EW) appreciated our
concern and reciprocated the same. The following issues were
from JTO(E) to SDE(E) & SDE(E) to EE(E):
We expressed our concern against non
filling up of vacant 120 SDE(E) posts on regular basis and a
bout 32 vacant EE(E) posts. PGM(EW) mentioned that due to
court cases pending on SC/ST Roster implementation, the CPCs
could not be initiated. We explained that since there is no
court cases pending in JTO(E) to SDE(E) & SDE(E) to EE(E) ,
thus CPCs can be initiated and expedited. PGM(EW) after
having discussions with AGM(Admin.) EW Wing assured to move
the proposal for initiating CPCs to fill up the vacant SDE(E)
/EE(E) vacant posts. He assured early action in this regard.

settlement of E-2 & E-3 standard pay scales to the JTO & SDE
equivalent executives in BSNL:

MOSC (I/C) Shri Niteshwar Kumar and has discuss the matter
on E-2 & E-3 pay scale issue and he has assured to appraised
the issue to the Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) for review the PO since
the earlier PO has been issued with the approval of Hon'ble

implementation with 15% fitment benefit and the same

directed GM (Estt.) for sending the BSNL Board approval on

depends on Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) & Secretary (T) support.
Since, the middle level administration in DOT is not
issue of payment of pension contribution on actual basic
instead of maximum of the pay of BSNL employees to DOT. Dir
(HR) mentioned that matter is still pending in the
establishment cell of DOT to reply DOE queries wherein
internal finance of DOT has also asked many quires in this
regard. It seems that DOT Administration is not favorable to
recommend the case to DOE.
of CPCs to fill-up the vacant Group-B and Group-A level
We expressed our serious concern against the non-filling of
the Group-B and Group-A level about 17000 vacant posts on
the pretext of pending court cases. PGM (Pers) informed that
Three SLPs have been filed in the Hon'ble Supreme Court

the Registrar Court on 27th Oct.2017 wherein the notices
have been issued to all concerned and now the next hearing
is expected in the middle of Nov. month. He explained that
we have requested to the Hon'ble Supreme Court to give us
the clear direction that whether the Hon'ble High Court
Chandigarh Judgement has to be implemented of the DOP&T
guidelines should be implemented on SC/ST roster in BSNL to
fill-up about 17000 Group-B and Group-A level vacant posts
in the interest of BSNL and its executives. He opined that
on this hearing Hon'ble Supreme Court may give clear cut
direction in this regard and on that basis the CPCs will be
conducted immediately. Dir (HR) also informed that she along

the matter for an early decision in this regard.
of additional increment on promotion in the same pay scale
after time bound promotion under EPP:
asked the status of the court cases in this regard from
PGM(Pers) and GM(Estt.). We expressed our concern that on
6th Nov-2017 the case was heard in the Hon'ble PB CAT New
Delhi filed by AIBSNLEA in the month of July-2017 against
DOT order dated 05.07.2017 wherein for the last three

appearance and further delaying the case. She directed CGM
(Legal) and PGM (Pers) to deal the case on priority for an
early decision so that the pension cases can be settled
of CPSU cadre hierarchy in BSNL:
expressed our resentment towards the attitude of PGM (Pers)
for not discussing the draft proposal with AIBSNLEA 2nd
majority Executive Association on CPSU cadre hierarchy
before placing to the management committee of BSNL Board
wherein many discrepancies are seen which will harm the
assured carrier progression of BSNL Executives. The Khan
Committee recommendation which were finalized after the
signature of three Executive Associations i.e. AIBSNLEA,
SNEA and AIGETOA has been diluted/ deviated which is not
acceptable. We also mentioned that AIBSNLEA have been
demanding implementation of CPSU hierarchy in the line of
Khan Committee report. Dir (HR) mentioned that Management
Committee of BSNL Board has directed to discuss the draft
proposal with all stake holders before its submission to the
BSNL Board for approval and now you have opportunity to put
forth your views in this regard. She directed PGM(Pers) to
discuss with AIBSNLEA on point to point basis and to take
out view for further submission to the management committee
of BSNL Board. She also directed GM(SR) to be present in the
meeting on 15th Nov.2017 at 15.00 Hrs in the Chamber of
PGM(Pers) and thereafter she will personally discuss the
matter with AIBSNLEA before its submission to Management

CPSU Cadre Hirarchy in BSNL:
Majority Association is now busy in sugar-coating the
quinine pill on behalf of the Management.
Anyone who will read the posting in
the website of SNEA dated 5-11-2017 will
certainly wonder whether it is a message from a trade union
or management. The write-up resembles very much with
the appeals generally posted by GM (SR) to console agitated
It is claimed in the website that the
draft proposal posted in our website is no way connected to
the proposal approved by MC and informed that the full
proposal will be posted by them once they receive it from
management. This means that they are waiting the detrimental
cadre hierarchy order to be approved and issued before
circulation. Cowards Act. If they have courage let them come
out and say which point in the draft proposal uploaded by us
is wrong and what is the right. For what this hush hush is
all about ?
It is propagated that the "promotion
will be without fresh CPC and without delay". What's the
meaning of fresh CPC and no delay. Will the present system
of evaluating APAR and VC will be dispensed with. At present
VC is valid for 3 months and CPC conducted for the eligible
candidates. Then how delay can be avoided and there will be
no need of fresh CPC.
Shamelessly it is written that " Khan
Committee recommendation is implemented as it is 5-5-5 years
except for benchmarks which are slightly tightened by the
management." Khan committee has nowhere suggested Sr. SDE as
functional promotion and tightening the norms by deciding
even one "Average" as disqualification in promotion for JTO,
SDE, Sr SDE, DE cadres i.e. for the span of 20 years is
"slightly tighting " in the eyes of the majority
Association. What a desperation to cover the misdeeds of the
The committee headed by Mr Khan, Ex.
ED (NB) deliberated the issue on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy at
length where all the executive Association has given there
opinion. After taking opinion of all, the report was signed
by all Associations including SNEA. Now what is the
necessity and compulsion on part of SNEA to deviate from the
report that too secretly and without discussion in any
forum. Why SNEA is overactive to convince the executives
about the good (?) points in the new proposal. CPSU Cadre
Hierarchy is for executives who are qualified enough to
understand themselves what is good and what is bad for them.
They why this extra initiative? When EPP was drafted there
was no need of secrecy and education. All Executives
welcomed the scheme because it was good for them. Therefore
without wasting the energy on preaching let the majority
Association come out with the total scheme as they
categorically mention the draft proposal uploaded by us is
far from reality.
We appeal to the Majority
Association please stop such actions to damage the entire
executives cadre for may be some fringe benefit for some
of the Court Cases against the DoT
order dated 5.7.2017
for withdrawal of additional increment by fixation in same
scale on post based promotion under EPP.
The case filed by
AIBSNLEA vide OA/100/2649/2017
Hon'ble Principal Bench CAT New Delhi against the DOT
order dated 05.07.2017
for withdrawal of additional increment by fixation in same
scale on post based promotion under EPP came up for hearing
on 06.11.2017 in the Principal Bench of Hon'ble CAT (Court No. 4).
BSNL Advocate requested for supply of MA Copy and also
requested for hearing date in the first week of December.
AIBSNLEA advocate requested for immediate hearing. However,
Hon'ble court posted the matter for further hearing on 28th
04.11.2017Betrayal towards BSNL Executives on issue of CPSU Cadre
*The CPSU Cadre Hierarchy (CCH)
is secretly planned by SNEA with Pers. Cell of BSNL only for
smooth implementation of DOT's order on E1 & E2 scales in
BSNL at the cost of the executives career.*
The SNEA leadership while uploading the secretly planned CCH
(They themselves admitted in same posting) never related the
existing pay scales with the proposed Hierarchy. As in
reality those are perfectly matching with the DOT's order E1
for JTO, E2 For SDE and
that is the reason for which all
this secrecy about. Pl see how perfectly it is matched.
E1 - JTO/JAO (Dy Manager)
E2 - SDE/AO (Manager)
E3 - SrSDE/SrAO ( Sr Manager)
E4 - DE/CAO ( Asst. GM).
E5 - DGM
Otherwise had the demand of SNEA E2 for JTO and E3 for SDE
was genuine, they would have never agreed to such CCH
proposal. Because in that situation the ideal proposal
should have been:
E2 - JTO/JAO (Dy Manager)
E3 - SDE/AO (Manager)
E4 - SrSDE/SrAO ( Sr Manager)
E5 - DE/CAO ( Asst. GM).
E6 - DGM
But SNEA is all along opposing the cascading demand on all
scales and demand only E2 for JTO and E3 for SDE which means
if the same demand is achieved without cascading then in the
proposed CCH the pay structure will be:
E2 - JTO/JAO (Dy Manager)
*E3 - SDE/AO (Manager)*
*E3 - SrSDE/SrAO ( Sr. Manager)*
E4 - DE/CAO ( Asst. GM).
i.e. 10 years in E3 scale in spite of a functional promotion
The executives of BSNL are put into a loose-loose situation with
the proposed CCH. Either accept E1 for JTO and get next
scale with each functional promotion or accept 10 years in
E3 scale although functional promotion from Manager to Sr
*Other pertinent points like fast track promotion, benefits
for SC/ST are also missing in the proposal*.
The issue of converting
promotion to Sr SDE/Sr AO as functional promotion is of
vital importance for the cadre. Earlier whenever this issue
was deliberated in any forum, the decision was always
against introduction of a functional grade between SDE/AO
and DE/CAO. Now SNEA has given its consent for introduction
of the functional grade Sr Manager. *Will they kindly inform
the executive fraternity when and in which forum they
deliberated and decided such vital issue. If deliberated
then why they kept it secret from the entire community of
Executives of BSNL.*
It is also interesting to note the attitude of AIGETOA
leadership. As claimed by SNEA in their website, AIGETOA was
also consulted while planning this secret CCH. If it is true
how they gave consent to such system which is out and out
detrimental to all the DRs of BSNL.
*Finally on the point of secrecy. We have earlier experience
on management formulating detrimental orders / schemes
secretly,. This is the first time we are seeing the Majority
Assn. is also becoming a part of the secret mission for
damaging the cadre which they represent*.
*Remember only conspiracies are required to be kept secret,
good plannings need not.*

take opinion of other executives' associations also mainly
with AIBSNLEA before submitting the proposal to the BSNL

recommendations on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy by KHAN Committee

distorted which is
against the terms & conditions of the assurances given
before absorption to BSNL executives. The GS Majority
Executive Association was also one of the members of KHAN
Committee who signed the recommendations & now

assured career progression.
