31.12.2012: BSNL Corporate Office issued instructions for Extension of online submission date only for DR-DGM <<<Click Here for letter>>>

31.12.2012: Rajasthan Circle and Kerala Circle  donated Rs.51,000/- &  Rs. 10,000/- (First Installment) respectively  for purchase of Car for CHQ. All other Circles are also requested to donate as promised in CWC Ahemadabad, which will also be uploaded on receipt of the money.

BSNL Executive Diary-2013: BSNL Management with an indifferent  attitude has issued instructions vide no. 4-5/2012-Admn.II dated 14.12.2012 under economy of expenditure austerity measures that no diaries will be issued to the executives for the calendar year 2013. However, BSNL Corporate Office vide no. 4-5/2012-Admn.II dated 28.12.2012 has further issued order that the Circles/Units who have already placed firm P.O. on or before 14.12.2012, may go ahead with purchase of diaries as ordered. On the other hand, the BSNL Management has purchased Maruti SX-4, Swift Dezire cars to PGMs / GMs level officers, foreign trips are continuing in BSNL to Senior officers, frequent tours of seniors officers, club fees, Blackberry instruments, frequent purchase of latest design of laptops, unlimited Broadband service connection and IPTV connections have been provided to all the JAG and above level officers. It is beyond imagination that how curtailment of a meager amount of Rs. 140/- per executive for one year can save the BSNL from financial crises.   

This association strongly feels that an executive cannot perform his day to day duty properly without keeping day to day account in his diary. We therefore request all the members of AIBSNLEA to purchase Executive Diary-2013 at their own cost from their respective Branch/Circle Secretaries at the earliest.

All the Branch Secretaries are requested to place Purchase Order to CHQ via Circle at the earliest so that Diaries can be dispatched in the first week of Jan'2013. Limited Stock is available at CHQ for sell.

21.12.2012: GS met GM(Estt.) BSNL Corporate Office and discussed

  • Allowing option to Deptt. JAOs joined after NEPP implementation: We extended thanks for giving 5- Advance increments to Deptt. JAOs joined after NEPP implementation to provide parity with DR JTOs/JAOs. Also requested to consider for allowing option to exercise to Deptt. JAOs. GM(Estt.) mentioned that Committee has examined the case for allowing option but did not found justified. However, some more feedback may be provided, if any, to further examine.

  • Regularization of Offg. JTOs: We requested to take immediate necessary steps to regularize offg. JTOs by one time upgradation before holding JTO LICE. GM(Estt.) mentioned that due to legal cases it has become difficult to take any action in this regard. However, any action for regularization/upgradation may be taken after the settlement of Court case.

  • Antedating of DNI: We requested for the settlement of antedating of DNI case wherein senior is drawing less pay than their junior which can be settled through antedating of DNI of senior w.r.t. their junior executive. GM(Estt.) further advised to discuss the matter with concern AGM(PAT) and thereafter the case can further be discussed. We will further discussed the matter with concern officers with some more feedback on this issue shortly.

21.12.2012: GS discussed with PGM(EW) and requested to initiate CPC from SDE(E) to EE(E). PGM(EW) mentioned that against the SEDs(E) seniority list (issued by DOT) some SDEs(E) have represented for corrections and the same have been sent to Sr. DDG(BW) DOT for consideration. As soon as the clarification is given by DOT, the CPC will be initiated. However, we have already requested Sr. DDG(BW) DOT for an early clarification.

21.12.2012: GS discussed with PGM(BW) regarding early holding of CPC from JTO(C) to SDE(C). PGM(BW) mentioned that the undisputed seniority list of JTOs  has been sent to Director(HR) for approval and after the approval of the competent authority the CPC will be initiated to fill up the vacant SDEs(C) posts.

20.12.2012: Status of 78.2% IDA fitment case in DoT: GS, FS, AGS(HQ) met Director (TPF) DoT and requested to clear the case of BSNL employees 78.2% IDA fitment proposal to the Competent Authority. It is understood that the case has been seen by Jt. Secy(Admn.), Member(S), AST, DDG(TPF) on BSNL pensioners fitment issue. Director(TPF) mentioned that the case is being examined and assured to clear at the earliest.

20.12.2012: GS, FS, AGS(HQ) met Sr. DDG(BW), DoT and requested for necessary corrections in the SDEs(E) seniority list as represented by many SDEs(E) through PGM(BW), BSNL Corporate Office. Sr. DDG(BW) assured to look into the matter.

19.12.2012: GS, FS met GM(Trg.) and discussed regarding

(a) Online mandatory training to executives under EPP: We further expressed our serious concern against continuation of Online mandatory training examination which has been imposed on Group-'B' level executives only under EPP whereas, such mandatory training provisions have not been made in Non-Executives promotion policy as well as in BSNL MSRRs for Group-'A' level executives. Group-'B' level executives on their each time bound upgradation are compulsorily should undergo the mandatory Online training examination even in the age of 55 to 60 years. Some executives, who are not computer friendly are not getting passed online training examination whereas, they have completed 30 to 35 years of service successfully. It is causing lot of humiliation, harassment and social demoralization to these senior executives. We requested that the online mandatory training examination should immediately be stopped till the decision is taken in this regard and the executives who have completed mandatory training once and having 55 years should be exempted from further mandatory training examinations and those who are not computer friendly and could not qualify online training in one attempt should be sent to in-house training course to BSNL's training centers. GM(Trg.) assured to look into the matter.   

(b) Re-imbursement of course fee for higher studies under BSNL Management Scheme: The stipulations of BSNL Distance Learning Scheme shall be applicable from 1st October-2010 & would be available up to 30.09.2013. Re-imbursement of course fee for higher studies under BSNL Management Scheme, is NOT Eligible if the course (Programme) is not completed before 30-09-2013. Many officers and employees have taken admission paying heavy fee to upgrade their skill hoping that fees paid will be reimbursed. We requested GM(Trg.) to arrange to issue the order at least to the persons who have enrolled and enrolling for higher studies before 30-9-2013.  GM(Trg.) assured to look into the matter.

19.12.2012: GS, FS, AGS(HQ) met Sr. GM(Pers.) and discussed about holding of CPC from SDE(T) to DE to fill up about 2200 vacant DEs posts. Sr. GM(Pers.) further mentioned that the proposal for utilization of 1100 MT quota posts out of 2700 MT posts has not been accepted by BSNL Management Committee. However, the proposal to fill up about 700 DEs vacant posts of seniority-cum-fitness quota is being processed to initiate the CPC to the Competent Authority. We pleaded that as per BSNL MSRRs provisions, BSNL Management on the actual requirement basis may recruit MTs and remaining MT quota posts may be filled up on adhoc basis by SDEs(T). Accordingly, earlier  BSNL decided to recruit 600 MTs and issued notification for recruitment but the same was stayed by Hon'ble Court and the process got stalled. It is a fact that MTs may be recruited as per the requirement of BSNL to fill up the higher level posts in future and to ensure proper career prospectus to them. Bulk recruitment of MTs may stagnate the MTs upto DGM level only.

In view of this, such provisions have been made in the BSNL MSRRs. Hence, keeping such large number of DEs posts vacant is not only stagnating the career prospectus of executives but also adversely affecting the viability of BSNL.

It seems that by not allowing to fill up vacant DEs posts by BSNL Management, non settling the issues i.e. Seniors drawing less pay then their Junior executives, Ante-dating of pay of Seniors w.r.t. their Juniors, CPSU Cadre hierarchy, E-1A, E-2A pay scales and  stopping Diary supply to executives are the outcome of revengeful attitude of the BSNL Management against Group-'B' level executives who are struggling for committed leadership in BSNL by ending deputation.

07.12.2012: GS, FS met Director(HR) and discussed

  • Filling up of vacant DGM/DE posts: We expressed our serious concern against non filling up of vacant DGMs & DEs posts Director (HR) mentioned that in today's BSNL Board meeting Govt. Directors (DOT) wanted to know the status of Court Case in Hon'ble Kerala High Court and the way out to fill up to vacant DGMs posts by promotions . We explained that there is no stay order against DE to DGM promotion but BSNL Management should  consider promotion in the true spirit of the Court judgments and should immediately fill up the vacant DGM posts since a large number of DEs are retiring every month without getting DGM promotions. Director (HR) assured an early solution on this issue.

    He also mentioned that in yesterday's Management Committee meeting utilization of 1100 MT quota/(STS) posts was further  discussed but MC asked the clarification about the existing MT posts and STS posts status which will be explained shortly.

    BSNL Management has recently constituted a Committee to review MTRRs whereas the committee constituted to submit report on CPSU Cadre hierarchy and E1A and E2A pay scales 10 months before is not at all meeting to discuss the issues.

    It is understood that BSNL Management is not at all interested to allow promotions from SDE to DE and DE to DGM with an indifferent attitude. Against this we are strongly protest orgainisationally at the earliest.

03.12.2012: GS, FS, AGS(HQ) met GM(FP) and discussed about some modifications / request transfer cases of AOs/CAOs. GM(FP) after detail discussions on genuine cases assured to examine the cases for settlement.

03.12.2012: GS along with some Offg. JTOs met GM(Estt.) and discussed [Addl. GM(Estt.) was present]. We requested to regularize about 2300 Offg. JTOs as one time measure before holding JTO LICE. GM(Estt.)  mentioned that regularization of Offg. JTOs at present is not possible in view of the pending Contempt of Court Case in Hon'ble High Court, Chandigarh. We further pleaded that required number of JTOs posts can be reserved for the Offg. JTOs and they are exempted to appear in JTO LICE. GM(Estt.) advised to seek the legal opinion on this issue. The contempt of Court case has been posted for hearing on 23rd Jan'2012. We expressed our serious concern against the inert presence of BSNL's lawyer in the Hon'ble High Court when a contempt is pending against CMD, BSNL which is continuing for the last more than three years.

The lack of concern of BSNL Management on this issue has caused threat of reversion of 3500 JTOs as well as non-regularization of 2300 Offg. JTOs.  As employer, BSNL Management should have seriously fought the case to safeguard the interest of BSNL as well as its employees. The 3500 JTOs working on regular basis for the last 6-10 years are facing threat of reversion and 2300 TTAs working as Offg. JTOs for the last 6-7 years are not being regularized.

29.11.2012: GS, FS, AGS(HQ) met Sr. GM(Pers.) and discussed:-

  • CPC from SDE to DE: They requested to expedite the CPC from  SDE to DE Adhoc/Regular. Sr. GM(Pers.) mentioned that BSNL's Management Committee is not considering to fill up vacant DEs posts on adhoc basis and has advised Pers. Cell to fill up the DEs Posts on regular basis only. Hence, no utilization of MT quota posts on adhoc basis is accepted and now only 600-700 vacant DEs posts of seniority-cum-fitness quota can be filled up. They protested against such indifferent attitude of BSNL Management towards BSNL executives whereas provisions exists in BSNL MSRRs  that 50% vacant DEs posts of MT quota can be filled up on adhoc basis.

  • CPC from DE to DGM: Sr. GM(Pers.) further mentioned that 147 SDEs seniority case judgement is awaited from Hon'ble High Court Kerala. However, he assured to discuss the matter and to take solution with the competent authority to fill up the vacant DGM posts immediately.

29.11.2012: GS, FS and GS, President, SNEA(I) met Member (Finance), DOT Smt. Sadhna Dixit and requested for early clearance of 78.2% IDA fitment order as approved and sent by BSNL Board long before. Also the queries raised by DOT have already been clarified by BSNL. They explained that DPE issued supplementary order of 2nd PRC on 2nd April'2009 on the basis of Committee of Ministers recommendations wherein they found that "The benefit of merger of 50% DA with Basic Pay w.e.f. 01.01.2007 effectively amounting to 78.2%, would be allowed for the purpose of fitment and pay fixation in the revised pay scales (para 2(i) of DPE O.M. dated 26.11.2008)".

Comrades, it is a Do or Die situation for BSNL employees wherein they have been betrayed by Govt. of India by getting absorbed them in BSNL/MTNL and now allowing deputation of the ITS who disobeyed the Govt. of India's absorption instructions and enjoying the status of Govt. servants on deputation to BSNL/MTNL without owning the responsibilities of both the PSUs. DoT has now taken U-turn and sent a Cabinet Note for allowing ITS deputation in BSNL/MTNL for the next 10-years ignoring the Govt. instructions and Viability of BSNL/MTNL.

Against this blatant  discrimination, all BSNL/MTNL employees are on the path of agitation and they will continue to fight till the time justice is given to them.

The Parliament March/Rally on 22nd Nov'2012 will be organised at Delhi and Mumbai.

All the Circle Office Bearers, Branch Secretaries are to mobilize our members for active participation in Massive Demonstration on 8th Nov'2012 throughout the country.

07.11.2012: Status of ITS repatriation Court case: Hon'ble High Court Delhi heard the ITS repatriation case today morning. Addl. Solicitor General submitted reply and presented case on behalf of the Union of India. ASG in his reply  sought 10 years time for relieving 945 non-optee ITS from BSNL and 83 ITS from MTNL i.e. 10% every year in progressive manner. Hon'ble Bench told that the 10 years time demanded  is "absurd" and asked that why these ITS are not opting BSNL / MTNL. BSNL's advocate mentioned that these ITS want to continue as Govt. Officer and only 62 ITS have been absorbed in BSNL. On query by Hon'ble Judge regarding number of ITS to be repatriated from BSNL and MTNL. It was informed that 945 ITS from BSNL and 83 from MTNL are to be repatriated. Hon'ble Judge immediately mentioned that 83 ITS in MTNL is meager number and they can be relieved immediately.

The Advocate from MTNL absorbed Group-'A' officers side pleaded that these non-optee ITS are given promotions against their posts illegally and depriving their promotions. Hon'ble court mentioned that their interest is being look after.

Repatriated ITS advocate requested for repatriation of all non-optee ITS and further putting them on deputation to BSNL / MTNL. Against this our advocate pleaded that this will be against the DOP&T orders. Hon'ble court mentioned that there is no difference between deemed deputation or deputation. Hence rejected the submission.

Against 10 years demand of DoT to allow deputation, our advocate strongly objected and mentioned that earlier BSNL / MTNL sought 2 years (25 months) time to relieve non-optee ITS and it was rejected by Hon'ble Court and now again asking 10 years time for relieving is not at all justified, Hon'ble court mentioned that even now it will not be given.

ASG informed about the Cabinet Note sent to Nodal Ministries and being discussed by the Committee of Secretaries and after the clearance, it will be sent to cabinet for approval.

Hon'ble Court mentioned that sending Cabinet Note will not affect the Court proceedings. However, court agreed  to mention the development in the judgment.

Hon'ble Court finally directed Govt. to repatriate non-optee ITS from BSNL/MTNL upto 15th Dec'2012. In case, they are not relieved, Govt. should submit a concrete proposal/plan upto 15.12.2012 explaining that in what reasonable time they can be relieved. The case is re-notified on 18th Dec'2012. Our impleadment application is also allowed to be re-notified on 18.12.2012.

Comrades, we are to orginisationally fight against the discriminatory attitude of DoT administration and BSNL/MTNL Managements towards BSNL/MTNL employees. Joint Forum agitation programmes are to be ensured for successful implementation.
