AIBSNLEA is the lone association that has taken up the matter of issuing Promotion orders from SDE(E) to EE(E) when the much-awaited SDE(T) to AGM(T) and AO to CAO promotion process has been stuck in court. Through our Letter dated 21/09/2022 and in the meeting of this association with CMD BSNL on 23/09/2022, AIBSNLEA requested the CMD BSNL to release all the pending promotion orders other than all those Promotion processes struck in court.  <<<GS Letter to CMD for SDE(E) to EE (E) on 21-09-2022 >>>

AIBSNLEA  requested to CMD BSNL that the release of possible promotion orders will 100% motivate all the executives and would convey the message that BSNL management is for giving eligible promotions to all executives. CMD BSNL readily agreed to our submission and initiated fruitful actions to release promotion orders during the meeting itself. 

Understandably, BSNL Management is sincerely working on CPCs to release all pending promotion orders in all streams that do not have court interventions against promotion orders.

04.11.2022     Update on SDE (E) to EE (E) Promotion: 

Efforts of AIBSNLEA CHQ for the breakthrough in BSNL Executives' Promotion by causing to release the SDE (E) to EE (E) Promotion is reaching finality. All the formalities for SDE (E) to EE (E)  Promotions including CPC Process have been Completed. Hopefully, by next Wednesday the Promotion Orders will be released.

Today GS , President , Dy GS & Auditor CHQ met GM(Pers) and discussed progress of the SDE (E) to EE (E) Promotion and requested to release the promotion orders by today itself .  GM  assured to release the orders by next week in due of some more office formalities . 

AIBSNLEA requested to release  all pending promotion orders for executives  in all streams including that in Telecom factory . GM(Pers) assured that after the release of SDE (E) to EE (E) Promotions, CPC for all other pending promotions in all streams will be carried out one.

AIBSNLEA requested for the best efforts from BSNL management to vacate  Court interventions/Stay in the very long pending AO to CAO & SDE to AGM Promotion Process . GM ( Pers) shared that BSNL management is trying their level best to vacate the stays from the CATs Chandigarh and Kolkatta.

GM ( Pers) assured to approach CAT Chandigarh with a fresh MA as requested by GS, AIBSNLEA to the CMD BSNL in the letter (No: AIBSNLEA/CHQ/CMD/2022 Date: 01.11.2022). GM ( Pers) shared that the matter of the letter is discussed with the CMD BSNL and CMD agreed to the same. Further, the matter has been discussed with BSNL counsel also. BSNL Management is waiting for the outcome of the case (OA No 1435/2018) on 14-11-2022, the next date of hearing.  << GS Letter to the CMD BSNL>>

In the SDE to AGM Promotion Process , the unfortunate situation is that CAT Kolkatta has not decided yet on the future course of action on the Review Application (RA 22/2022) filed by BSNL on 27.09.2022 after the direction of Hon’ble CAT Kolkata (OA No 350/01626/2022) on recasting the SDE Seniority Lists.

AIBSNLEA expressed our serious concern about the lingering process of SDE to AGM Promotion.....


04.11.2022   The Hon'ble Supreme Court of India (a three-judge Bench led by Chief Justice of India U.U. Lalit) Today on Friday, the  November 4, 2022, upheld the Employees' Pension (Amendment) Scheme, 2014 as "legal and valid" while reading down certain provisions of the scheme concerning current members.

The dispute primarily concerned the controversial amendments made to paragraph 11 of the Employees Pension Scheme (EPS) of 1995.    

This judgement is beneficial for those who are opting for EPF Pension

01.11.2022    GS Writes to Shri P. K. Purwar Ji,the CMD, BSNL , on the Kind intervention sought to the inordinate delay in vacating the ‘Status Quo’ on AO to CAO promotion from the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh due to non-constitution of the double bench in the CAT and requested to cause to file a fresh MA at CAT Chandigarh to vacate the ‘Status Quo’ - regarding

We would like to draw your kind attention to the above-cited subject. The Promotions in the Grade of AO to CAO are held up due to the “Status Quo” in the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh issued on 30.11.2018 and is pending for the last 4 years resulting stuck the promotions from AO to CAO for the last 4 years despite the fact that ample vacancies are available. BSNL has filed a Writ Petition in the Hon’ble High Court of Punjab and Haryana Chandigarh challenging the Interim Order passed by Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh in OA No 60/1435/2018 titled Anupam Yadav Vs BSNL on the above subject. The Hon’ble High Court has delivered the judgment dated 28.01.2020 in the CWP-9614-2019 (O&M) that: “We deemed it appropriate to dispose of the present WP with the direction to the learned CAT to decide at least the application moved by BSNL for Vacation/Modification of the initial impugned order within 15 days of the next hearing. The learned CAT is also requested to make an Endeavour to dispose of the main OA at the earliest…” however no disposal has been done by Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh even after the lapse of more than two years from the direction given by the Hon’ble HC of Punjab and Haryana in Jan 2020.

The case was posted for 27.10.2022 and is again postponed for the next hearing on 14.11.2022 due to the non-constitution/non-availability of the double bench at CAT Chandigarh. The case has already been postponed 30 times due to one or the other reason in the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh.

In view of the above unfortunate conditions, it is requested to kindly cause to ensure to get the ‘Status Quo’ is vacated by filling a fresh Misc. Application at CAT Chandigarh by bringing up the fact of non-commitment of the Hon’ble High Court’s directions pronounced on 28-01-2020 to the learned CAT Chandigarh to decide at least the application moved by BSNL for Vacation/Modification of the initial impugned order within 15 days of the next date of hearing and even after lapses of around three years nothing has happened. This is the right time to approach Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh by filling a fresh MA for lifting the ‘Status Quo’, especially on the fairground that even after a lapse of around three years of pronouncement of the BSNL favorable direction from the Hon’ble High Court to the CAT. This association is damn sure that the ‘Status Quo’ from the Hon’ble CAT can be vacated without delay, particularly by bringing genuine facts for consideration of CAT Chandigarh that around 54 CAOs are only working across the Country in BSNL against the Sanctioned Strength of 672 posts of CAOs and there is an acute shortage of officers in the Cadre of CAO and difficulties have been faced by the BSNL Management to run the organization with these lesser number of CAOs working against the Sanctioned Strength. Moreover, it is kindly mentioned here that the petitioner of this case has already retired from BSNL services.

Hence, once again we would request your good self to kindly intervene in the matter and cause to issue necessary instructions to the officers concerned for filling a fresh MA at CAT Chandigarh for lifting the ‘Status Quo’ called by the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh so that all vacant posts of CAOs in BSNL can be filled up on priority basis. Thus the young DR-AOs of BSNL may get the much-dreamed CAO Regular promotion since they have been deprived of their due promotions for years together and  they will serve the Company with better Zeal and Enthusiasm.

Sir, as you are well aware of the truth that the long pending promotions in all streams, whatever the reasons, turned thousands of heartened and motivated BSNL executives to disheartened and demotivated. No way this is entertaining a conducive atmosphere for the better interest of BSNL. Out of the three Ps (Pay , Promotion, and Perks) , granting eligible promotions to executives not leaving any monetary burden on BSNL in most cases. On the other hand, this will leverage more monitory additions to BSNL through motivated employees through promotions. In this pretext, this association requests your performing office to devise a mechanism to issue promotion orders in all streams across all cadres on yearly basis through the ERP platform in line with the granting of annual financial increments, Completion of APARs, Completion of IPMS etc. This will certainly enhance the performance efficiency level of BSNL and this is the high demand of the time. Your attention is kindly solicited to this proposal for auto issue of Promotion Orders in BSNL on yearly basis for a better BSNL.

17.10.2022    GS , President , DY GS and CHQ Auditor met GM (Pers) and discussed updates on the points those have been discussed in detail on 11-10-2022 with GM (Pers) by AIBSNLEA .

All those points we have discussed on 11-10-2022 were reported on the date and hence not repeating once again here and the progress on some of the points  follows :

Update on SDE (E) to EE (E) Promotion:  Efforts  of AIBSNLEA for the breakthrough in BSNL Executives' Promotion by releasing the SDE (E) to EE (E) Promotion will be materialized hopefully by next week since the clarity sought by BSNL from DoPT on the PwBD reservation in promotion issue have been received .

The SDE (E) to EE (E) Promotion Process is solely initiated through the directions by Hon. CMD BSNL on the letter of AIBSNLEA  and due to the subsequent request of AIBSNLEA to CMD BSNL that CPC for Promotions from SDE (E ) to EE ( E ) may be considered  as there is no court case against the promotion in Electrical Stream and to share the massage from Management that BSNL Management is not against any eligible promotions for the employees while most expected promotion orders in other streams are caused to hit legal blockage

<<<GS Letter to CMD  for SDE(E) to EE(E) >>>

Promotion from AO to CAO Cadre:  BSNL Management has initiated the preliminary work for CPC process for the promotion from AO to CAO also solely after the relentless efforts by AIBSNLEA only.

The updation of Entry/verification of off-line APAR data in respect of Accounts Officers for the period from 2010-11 onwards in SAP/ERP Portal is pending since long in many circles. In this regard AIBSNLEA has submitted a request letter to the GM(Pers). GM(Pers) assured to follow up the same with all defaulted circles so that this issue will not be hurdle in the finalization of CPC for AO to CAO promotions.  <<GS Letter to GM Pers>>

Progress on all other points including the release of request transfers through OTP are also discussed. GM(Pers) assured to consider all the points positively.

17.10.2022    GS Writes to Shri P. K. Purwar Ji,the CMD, BSNL , on the Clear anomaly of protecting and rewarding the executives, in the inter-Circle long Stay transfer orders for executives having more than 26 years of stay in a circle, who have disobeyed & challenged the BSNL CO’s transfer orders but were permitted to continue in their parent Circles. This has already created deep division among BSNL executives and pushed down the morale of the disciplined executives who have obeyed the transfer orders and joined the transferred Circle; the sample case of Transfer and Posting from J&K Circle ....

Respected Sir,

It is heavily constrained to bring to your kind notice with immense respect that some mystifying transfer cancellation/retention/ extension orders are getting released from BSNL Corporate Office on the transfer orders of executives under the inter-Circle long Stay for more than 26 years, even after more than five months of the release of the long stay transfer orders.  This association honour and share our sincere gratitude to BSNL management, if the cancellation/retention/ extension of orders is released from BSNL Corporate Office on genuine medical grounds. But, after understanding the large quantum of cancellation/retention/ extension of the transfer orders and after receiving feedback from almost all of our circle secretaries, we also feel that large numbers of ineligible executives are also protected to continue in their Parent Circle disobeying the inter-circle long stay transfer orders. This kind of protection and reward to those executives who have disobeyed & challenged the BSNL CO’s transfer orders is extremely painful, demoting, disbelief in the HR System of BSNL etc to all those executives who have regarded the transfer orders in great respect and joined to their newly transferred circles in the interest of BSNL service. Moreover, this would pave an unhealthy way for excuses for all future transfer orders.

This association is in receipt of resentment letters in this regard from many circle secretaries. One of the complaint letters, from CS, J&K is attached herewith for your kind ready reference wherein the anomaly with respect to the inter-Circle long Stay for more than 26 years elaborated as, Eighteen (18) executives had been transferred out from J&K and only Five(5) executives got relieved off and remaining Thirteen (13) executives are still working in J&K itself.

Transfer Ordered under the inter-Circle long Stay for more than 26 years dated from 2-5-2022


Not Relieved





DE/AGM (Telecom)




SDE (Telecom)


SDE (Electrical)




EE (Civil)








CS ( J&K) continued that out of  18 executive transferred by  BSNL corporate office , retention orders issued for 07 executives , the transfer order has been modified for one executive, the transfer order has been cancelled for one executive , One executive is transferred back to J&K &  remaining three (3) executives are not relieved yet even after 5 months of issuing the orders. Many Circles are having the same situation after release of the long stay transfer orders from 02-05-2022. This is an embarrassing, unhealthy and unbalancing situation in many ways and this situation (pampering the dissidents and tampering with the conformists) may not be permitted to sustain in BSNL for the better interest of BSNL  

Hence, with enormous respect, we request your able office that the Circle Secretary ( J&K) of this association, Sh Puran Chand Thappa, DE , HRNo (99503858) having Sl No:  68 in the BSNL CO Order Number No. BSNLCO-PETS/11(11)/1/2020-PERS1 Dated: 02-05-2022 got transferred to CNTXN (ExceptJ&K) and joined as DE(Satellite) Sikandrabad at Satellite Earth station in  UP on 24-06-2022   may kindly be arranged to transfer back to J&K in the ground of natural justice and as a token of appreciation to honour the BSNL CO transfer orders. If not, this shall send a negative wave down the line to all executives that those who are obeying BSNL CO orders would be betrayed especially when the lion’s share (>72%) of dissident executives who dishonoured BSNL CO transfer orders have been rewarded to Stay Back in Parent Circle. 

Sir, this scenario happened in J&K with the inter-Circle long Stay transfers for executives having more than 26 years of stay in a circle is almost a cross-section of what happened in all other circles of BSNL in respect of the long Stay transfer.

With Kind regards,                                            

                                            GS AIBSNLEA CHQ , NDL
