22nd Oct2014 Meeting with Sri V. Umashankar, Jt Sec(T), DoT: GS Com K Sebastin met Sri V. Umashankar, JS(T) on 22.10.2014 and held discussions on the following subject:

a) Implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc for JTO/JAO, SDE/AO etc:Since DPE rejected the proposal of E1A and E2A, Assn requested to implement the standard pay scales of E2 and E3. Those young JTO/JAOs joined after 01.01.2007 facing huge difference in pay comparing to their seniors and this demoralizes them at the beginning of their career. Further at the time of their recruitment, they were offered E1A pay scale which is likely to be revived upwards, but once they joined in BSNL, they were demoted to E1 scale. For the revival of BSNL, motivation of this young comrades are very much required. JS(T) concurred with our views and opined that they should not be de-motivated at all and everything possible to motivate the young recruits should be considered.
b) Status of merger of BSNL and MTNL: JS(T) informed that the issue is under the active consideration of the Govt and discussion is going on at different levels. Assn pointed out that contentious issues like market liability of MTNL, disinvestment of MTNL and HR issues are to be addressed first before taking any final decision. JS(T) informed that now the market liability of MTNL has come down to Rs 10,000 Crores after the recent financial assistance and it has to be addressed by Govt along with other issues.
c) Pension revision w.e.f 01.01.2017: GS told JS(T) that DPE is finalizing the terms of reference of 3rd PRC and the pension revision of BSNL absorbed employees also to be made part of the terms of reference as decided by the union cabinet. JS(T) directed DIR(PSU-I) to verify the cabinet decision and immediately take up with DPE for inclusion of pension revision also an item on the terms of reference.
d) Support to BSNL in lieu of VRS: The proposal of financial assistance to BSNL in lieu of VRS (50% of the salary of the targeted employees of about 70,000) for the next 10 years in a diminishing way is under the active consideration of Hon Union Finance Minister. Dept of Expenditure agreed with the proposal but Dept of Economic Affairs having reservations on the proposal. Hon Fin Minister has to take the Final decision.

22nd Oct2014 Meeting with GM(FP): GS and AGS Com Arvind Dahiya met GM(FP) on 22.10.2014 and held discussions on:

Assn pleaded for considering all the vacancies so that maximum eligible JAOs can be promoted as AOs. Association requested to issue the promotion orders keeping the interest of the SC/ST comrades also.

b) CAO(Adhoc) to CAO (Regular) promotion: The DPC for around 400 vacancies completed. The minutes of the DPC will be signed most probably today. The promotion orders will be issued at the earliest after getting the approval of the DPC minutes and promotion orders from the competent authority. The promotion order will be for around 350 nos as VC for the remaining cases not yet received. Assn assured to arrange the remaining VCs at the earliest.

c) DGM(Regular) promotion: We extended our sincere gratitude for completing the DPC and issuing the DGM(Regular) promotion orders.

d) Committee meeting on extending 30% fitment to 2010 JAOs: Few meetings held but didn’t come to any conclusion on the issue. Finance wing is very positive on the issue. Assn strongly pleaded for the settlement of the issue positively by extending 30% fitment to the JAOs of 2010 batch also.

26th Sep 2014 Meeting with ED(Finance): GS, CHQ President and Com M. Gopinathan, CS/TN Circle met Smt Sujata Ray and discussed the following issues:

a) 30% superannuation benefits to BSNL Recruits. Assn requested Madam to finalize the proposal at the earliest keeping in mind, the welfare of the employees as this is the only social security measure for them after retirement so that Management can take a decision on the matter at the earliest.

b) DPC from JAO to AO: Assn requested to expedite the DPC for all the vacancies:

It is understood that yesterday, there was a big demand from BSNLEU and NFTE in the National Council on the issue of 30% superannuation benefit in which CMD assured them an early action. In addition to the persuasion by ourselves, we are in touch with BSNLEU and NFTE on this crucial issue.

26th Sep 2014 Congratulations to all the comrades who stood with the Association in the testing time: 

Eventhough the BSNL management was insensitive to the Indefinite fast for the first three days, all the Unions and Associations supported the agitation from day one. GSs and Presidents of BSNLEU and NFTE visited the Pandal along with other leaders. GSs of BSNLMS, AIGETOA and AIBSNLOA also visited the pandal.

We cannot forget our great supporters at the National and Circle levels, the JAC, the Samara Sahayasamithi in Kerala, BSNLEU, NFTE, FNTO, BSNLMS and a lot of others, who have steadfastly and solidly stood with us for anything and everything that means trade union fraternity and solidarity. At the same time, always there will be exceptions and that has to happen to expose themselves before the whole world because they are afraid of charge sheets and punishments to their top Circle and SSA leaders at Trivandrum on the proven charges of fraud and financial irregularities, protected and helped for years, irrespective of repeated warnings and reminders by CVC/CVO to CGMT/Kerala. Otherwise how they can manage Circle level award to an activist who is “under currency of punishment” for financial irregularities! They are bound to support each other nakedly, now the whole world knows, they exposed themselves.

I have no words to congratulate each and every SNEA comrade across the country, especially comrades of Kerala Circle who refused to bow down in the face of the worst ever and unheard of tirades on the free minds of the Executives and employees. And at CHQ, we had a minor role to play, be with them and support them, we will continue to do that with the same vigour and commitment.

26th Sep 2014 GS writes to CMD/BSNL regarding Vindictive actions taken by CGMT/Kerala and other issues which created turmoil in Kerala Circle for the last few months.
Click here to view Letter.........
22nd Sep 2014 Indefinite fast at BSNLCO by CHQ leaders and activists starts today, 22.09.2014:
SNEA forced to launch such an agitation due to the continuing harassment and the vindictive actions of CGMT/Kerala, in the form of transfer of office bearers and activists, massive victimization in the form of dies-non, charge sheet to the office bearers at Circle level for participating in the hunger strike and writing to CMD/BSNL and Hon MOC by the General Secretary demanding inquiry into the  alleged attempt by CGMT/KRL to help/bail out the vendor M/s Nortel from paying penalty and AMC charges etc continuing after the settlement reached on 01.08.2014, clearly in violation of the terms of settlement. The services are deteriorated but CGMT is not concerned about that.
Against these vindictive actions, CHQ office bearers will be starting “Indefinite Fast” at BSNLCO and Kerala comrades at Circle office, Trivandrum from 22.09.2014. “Work according to Rule” in Kerala Circle will continue.
CHQ Treasurer and three AGSs are at Trivandrum in solidarity and support to the Kerala Comrades.
22nd Sep 2014 After getting feedback from the Circles, slight changes are made in the next programmes:

01.10.2014, BSNL Day: It will be observed by performing 1 hour extra work.

14.10.2014   : Lunch / closing hour demonstration at Circle/SSA HQs.

28.10.2014   : One day Dharna at Circle/SSA HQs.

10.11.2014 to 14.11.2014: Relay hunger strike at Circle/SSA HQs.


We sincerely hope that BSNL Management will listen to the burning issues of the Executives and resolve them without further delay. If the issues are not resolved, then we have to go ahead with the agitation programmes as declared and even to further intensify the agitation by 15th December, 2014 till the issues are resolved.   

Make extensive preparations by conducting Branch/ SSA level meetings and meeting each and every Executive one by one and make them to join the struggle.

20th Sep 2014 Indefinite Hunger strike by CHQ leaders at corporate office and CHQ Treasurer, Three AGSs from CHQ and Circle Leaders at Kerala circle office w.e.f 22-09-2014

19th Sep 2014 Massive participation in the Dharna held on 18th Sept, 2014 across the country --- 

congratulations to one and all.

Keep the momentum and start mobilization for the next programmes from 01.10.2014 onwards. We will continue our struggle till we achieve our demands as per the assurance given in March, 2014.

Massive participation reported from Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, UP(E), Karnataka, West Bengal, Kol TD, Punjab, Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Assam, NE I etc etc. Hundreds of Executives participated in the Dharna at Delhi, Chennai, Banglore, Patna, Pune, Hyderabad, Bhopal, Lucknow, Ludhiana etc.

The massive participation shows the large scale resentment among the Executives in non resolution of the crucial issues of the basic cadres, JTO/JAO, SDE/AO etc like E2, E3 pay scales, promotions, 30% superannuation benefits, CPSU cadre hierarchy etc even after the assurance from management in March, 2014.

Large no of Executives especially young comrades participated in the agitation, irrespective of membership realizing the fact that this struggle is going to decide their future. SNEA, the home of JTOs will never allow its demotion and continue the struggle for the promotion of JTO cadre by way of pay scales, promotions etc.

In TN and CHTD, the Dharna held on 19.09.2014 due to elections. J&K Circle was exempted from demonstration and Dharna as they are fully involved, round the clock, in restoration of the services in J&K.

19th Sep 2014 Indefinite fast from 22.09.2014 at BSNLCO by CHQ leaders:

BSNLCO issued instructions to Kerala Circle to implement all the commitments made to the Assn. Based on the instructions from BSNLCO and as per the commitments, CGMT/Kerala issued the transfer order to bring back 68 Executives who had posted to other SSAs two years back to meet the shortages.  

However, the vindictive actions, especially the transfer of office bearers and activists, massive victimization in the form of dies-non, charge sheet to the office bearers, transfer in the name of rationalization and ERP etc continuing after the settlement reached on 01.08.2014, clearly in violation of the terms of settlement.

Against these vindictive actions, CHQ office bearers will be starting “Indefinite Fast” at BSNLCO and Kerala Comrades at Circle office, Trivandrum from 22.09.2014. “Work according to Rule” in Kerala Circle also will continue. CHQ Treasurer and three AGSs are deputed to Kerala Circle. Remaining CHQ office bearers will be at New Delhi.

11th July 2014 DPE out rightly rejects the proposal sent by DOT recently to allow BSNL to introduce replacement scales of E1A and E2A for JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs in BSNL based on the decision of the BSNL Board.
This Association has had been having consistent interaction with the concerned officers in DPE for the last about three months to impress upon them and convince them not to take an exception to the proposal of DOT to allow BSNL to introduce non standard IDA replacement scales of E1A and E2A in BSNL for JTO/SDEs in the context of guidelines issued by DPE to all the CPSUs not to extend non standards IDA scales. DPE has further directed DOT to correct any aberration, if at all, in this regard.
With the rejection of proposal by DPE, our demand to extend standard IDA scales of E2 and E3 for JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs gets strengthened since BSNL Management very recently during our organizational actions made a firm commitment to us that it will consider our demand of extending standard pay scales of E2 and E3 with an open mind in case DPE takes a contrary view to the decision of BSNL Board to allow extending replacement IDA scales of E1A and E2A to JTOs, SDEs etc. This is a very positive development and surely brings us closer to resolution of our demand of extending standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs, SDEs etc.
This Association has had series of discussions with concerned officers in DPE on this issue. CHQ president and GS had a detailed discussion on this issue with Secy/DPE and JtSecy/DPE nearly three months before and succeeded in impressing upon them to reiterate to DOT that BSNL must switch over to standard IDA scales approved by Govt. based on the recommendations of 2nd PRC and immediately correct any anomalous situation that prevails in BSNL with regard to existence of non standard IDA scales. This is a big milestone as far as resolving the issue of extending standard scales of E2 and E3 to JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs etc is concerned and gives us huge strategic leverage to get the issue resolved.

8th July 2014 Case at Hon Supreme Court on 147 seniority: The SLPs along with the MAs filed by the applicants and BSNL came up for arguments today. The applicants (147 officers) and BSNL pleaded for allowing the promotions. Our senior lawyer strongly opposed any stay on Hon EKM High Court order and argued that any promotion including 147 officers will be as good as stay of Hon EKM judgment and CAT judgment. After hearing the pleading from both sides, Hon SC decided for final hearing of the SLPs in the last week of September and dispose off the matter on merit. Meanwhile Hon SC allowed to go ahead with promotions as per the existing seniority subject to the outcome of the SLP.

5th July 2014 Sharing of BTSs with other operators: GS Com K Sebastin, President Com G L Jogi and AGS Com Arvind Pal Dahiya had some discussion with DIR (CM) Sri Anupam Shrivastava on sharing of BTSs with other operators on 03-07-14. DIR (CM) told that sharing of BTSs with other operators especially in rural and uneconomical areas is to be considered. According to him, those BTSs are to be shared where the traffic is less. In lieu of that, BSNL can share BTSs of other operators where we don’t have BTS or having coverage problem. This will improve the coverage, quality and presence as no of BTSs will increase and ultimately bring revenue also. Already other private operators are doing this and earning revenue and improved the coverage.

Sri R K Upadhyay, CMD/BSNL retires on superannuation.

After 3 years and two months of service as CMD/BSNL, Sri R. K. Upadhyay, retired on 30.06.2014 on superannuation. He took over as CMD at a very difficult time when the cash reserves was nil, all the tenders, entire procurement of stores and equipments etc were at shambles. During his tenure he almost streamlined all the tendering processes which paved the way for phase VII GSM expansion, small tender for western zone for GSM, tenders for procurement of stores and materials like BB modems, UG cables, EPBTs, MLLN and MPLS equipments, NGN equipments etc.
He was instrumental in surrender of BWA spectrum and getting refund from Govt, 3G roaming, brining issues related to the viability of BSNL into the notice of GoM etc.
The employees of BSNL will remember him for his effective role in implementation of 78.2% IDA fitment when the company was passing through a difficult period and recording losses year after year.

The BSNL Executives especially SNEA(I) will be grateful to him for his excellent role in ending Adhocism by increasing the DE Regular quota from 50% to 75%. He stood like a rock after his commitment to SNEA(I) in a meeting on 10.08.2013 and fought with all to ensure that necessary amendments are pushed through the BSNL Board.
Sir, SNEA(I) wish you a happy and peaceful retired life.

30th June 2014 SNEA(I) Bihar Circle extends best wishes for all comrades who retire today  on  superannuation, for  a  happy  and  peaceful retired life. Comrade you are starting a  new  journey and exceptional chapter of your life.

18th June 2014 Govt to draw up revival plan for MTNL and BSNL:The government has said that it will initiate steps to revive ailing telecom PSUs MTNL and BSNL as it looks to arrest the gradual decline in the fortunes of the two companies that once dominated the Indian telecom market.
Communications and IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad was quoted by media as saying that steps will be taken on a priority basis to revive the two public sector units (PSUs), MTNL and unlisted BSNL, that have failed to ride the boom in the Indian telecom sector even as private operators like Airtel, Vodafone and Idea grew from strength to strength.
"I have found that MTNL and BSNL have not received as much attention as required. They need proper infrastructure support," Mr Prasad was quoted by the media as saying.
They need proper infrastructure support," Prasad said as he also urged the PSUs to lay a special emphasis on improving their services. "I have asked them to improve services for consumer satisfaction. The government will provide infrastructure support." 
In his first formal Press conference after taking over three weeks ago, the minister said he would directly monitor the performance of their networks. "I have decided that an NOC (network operating centre) will be set up in my chamber in which the number of BSNL-MTNL towers working or not working will appear on a screen before me," he said.
Speaking on the issue of spectrum trading and sharing, he said a final view will be taken on the matter shortly. Spectrum allocations will be done in a "transparent" manner. "The days of lobbying and favouritism are over. I have told my officers to work with courage and transparency."

31st May 2014 Important decisions of CWC Jaipur held on 26th &  27th May, 2014.

1. The CWC resolved to focus fully on the revival of BSNL in the next two yeas keeping in mind the next pay revision for the BSNL Executives due from 01.01.2017. The Management and all the employees should work in tandem to achieve this goal. Efforts should be made to ensure that “pension revision” also becomes one of the terms of reference of the next PRC.

2. The shortage of materials like OF cable, 5 pair cable, EPBTs, Modems and UG cable in Circles and MPLS ports are severely affecting the development and maintenance of the network. BSNLCO should ensure the availability of all essential materials in the field units for operation and maintenance activities.

3. The standard pay scales of E2, E3, -----, E7 should be implemented from 01.01.2007 without further delay. In case pension contribution issue is not getting resolved in a reasonable time, the possibility of extending relief to the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 especially the 2007 and 2008 batch JTOs may be explored.

4. The CWC demanded full 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL Recruited employees as it is a social security measure. The Management should consider the matter sympathetically. CWC decided that Association shall have further discussions with the Management to settle the issue at the earliest.

5. The CWC decided to explore the possibility of extending “Full Pension” option to the Executives and employees recruited directly by BSNL as a onetime measure as EPF pension with “Full Pension” option is equivalent to Govt pension. BSNL Corporate office should take up the matter with EPF authorities at appropriate level. Further the CWC demands centralized EPF payment.

6. The CWC decided to extend total solidarity and support to the agitating comrades of SNEA(I), Kerala Circle and stand with them wholeheartedly and unitedly for seeking settlement of their issues with the CGMT who works with a pre-determined mindset to destabilize the exemplary work culture existing in the Circle which has taken it to the heights of productivity and profitability.

7. Membership verification among Executives’ Association needs to be expedited. Meanwhile the issues raised by the Association are to be addressed by the Management to have meaningful membership verification. The subscription deduction through check off system to be demanded in case the membership verification is getting delayed further.

8. CWC outrightly rejected the draft proposal on CPSU cadre hierarchy as it is again linked with the availability of posts and seniority. Further CWC felt that by proposing very stringent attendant conditions, the Management is trying to take away even the minimum promotional avenues, today the Executives are having in BSNL. Time Bound Functional Promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy is to be pursued in the Joint Committee under the banner of United Forum.

9. For conducting the next All India Conference, 6 Circles namely Andhra Pradesh, Delhi (BSNLCO&NTR), Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan and UP(West) Circles came forward. The CWC directed the concerned Circles to submit the required data by 15th July, 2014 and final decision on the AIC venue will be taken by a Committee comprising of Com GS, Com CHQ Treasurer, Com Arvind Dahiya/AGS(HQ) and Com H Muthu/AGS.

10. CHQ Quota/Building Fund/Legal Fund payment: All defaulting Circles should clear the pending Building fund and Legal fund at the earliest. The CWC discussed the pending CHQ Quota/Building Fund/Legal Fund payment by Gujarat Circle. Circle Secretary, Gujarat Circle assured the CWC that GUJ Circle will pay maximum Building Fund, Legal Fund and all the pending CHQ quota by the first week of July, 2014.

11. Circle Conferences of Punjab, Jharkhand and NE II Circles are to be held within 3 months.

12. The constitution amendment committee submitted its report and the CWC after detailed deliberations approved the proposals. It will be placed before the next AIC for approval.

13. The CWC resolved that the pay anomalies like a) fixation of pay on officiating promotion and pay protection, b) Antedating of increment or implementation of uniform increment date and c) Senior drawing less pay than the Juniors etc are to be settled by BSNL.

14. First TBP after 4 years w.e.f 01.10.2000 to be pursued separately.

15. Many Circles reported very poor quality of Type II modem supplied by M/s Terracom. The range is hardly 2 to 4 meters in many modems supplied. It shall be taken up with BSNLCO.

16. As per the existing rules, immunity is not applicable for promotions. Accordingly for future promotions, immunity will not be extended. Genuine medical cases like cancer, mentally retarded cases, physically handicapped cases etc for the self and family members only should be taken up for retention in the Circle. Association should ensure that long standing Executives in the Circles should not be posted to the non recruiting Circles and nearby Circles to avoid long standing transfers to tenure circles.

17. CWC demands complete uniformity in the BSNLMS RR for promotion to EE cadre in Civil/Electrical/Arch wings like Telecom /Finance wing.

18. CWC decided to further take up the generalization of “notional date of promotion” for the Executives promoted in 2004 in LDCE quota once Hon Supreme Court gives a judgment in this regard.

19. The CWC demands generalization of FR 22(1)(a)(1) fixation benefit to all the Officiating JTOs and Officiating JTOs regularised upto 2007.

20. FR 22(1)(a)(1) fixation benefits and DNI option for the promotions from JTO to SDE made in May, 2000 shall be taken up with BSNL, DoT and DPE.

21. CWC decided to demand “Notional date of promotion” for the JTOs who could not join in March, 2011 promotion order due to stay on promotion orders.

22. CWC decided to repair and occupy the building at Dehradun, Uttarakhand. CHQ decided to provide loan to UKD Circle for the same.

16th May 2014 Meeting with Sri M. F. Farooqui, Secy/DOT:

Com G L Jogi/CHQ President and Com K Sebastin/GS met Secy/DOT on 15.05.2014 and had a detailed discussion with him on the issue of awarding installation/ maintenance of OF project in North Eastern Circles to be funded by USOF exclusively to BSNL:

This Association reliably learnt that Telecom Commission is mulling the option of inviting bids for execution/maintenance of Optical Fibre project in North Eastern Circles to be funded by USOF exclusively. Generally, govt. so far has had been awarding such projects funded by USOF exclusively to BSNL on nomination basis for very formidable, rational and obvious reasons.

In this connection, on learning about such serious development, we met Secy/DOT to request him to continue with the existing practice of awarding such projects to BSNL alone for very strong and justifiable reasons like BSNL has already made massive capital investments towards laying of telecom infrastructure in remotest areas from where it got no returns and the fact that BSNL has been the highest contributor towards the USOF. Against the backdrop of these facts, we made an impassioned plea to Secy/DOT to award this project also to BSNL. However, our pleading before Secy/DOT evoked very sharp reaction from him because of following reasons.

A)      Secy/DOT emphatically stated that BSNL has lost its appetite to execute projects funded by USOF and in this context he made pointed reference to NOFN project which continues to be a virtual non starter as on date and LWE (Left wing extremist) project in CHG, MP, OR, WB MH etc. which also has made no headway. Secy/DOT felt that while the govt. is very keen and is making best efforts to revive BSNL and has been unfailingly awarding USOF funded projects to BSNL, the response from BSNL to execute such projects to say the least has been extremely disappointing and quite tardy in terms of meeting timelines and other important project requirements.

B)        Another important fact mentioned by Secy/DOT is that BSNL is under wrong impression that govt. has a compulsion to award such projects to BSNL alone and that there are no takers for execution of such projects. BSNL must dispel this impression and understand that there are   “N” numbers of takers for execution of such projects.

C)       Secy/DOT conveyed in very clear terms that total lack of enthusiasm and interest on part of BSNL to undertake and execute such projects is driving govt. to consider the option of inviting bids for execution of such projects.

However, from our side, we also apprised in detail Secy/DOT about the constraints that BSNL is also facing in execution of such projects and pleaded with him to give BSNL opportunity to execute this pretigious project in Nort East. Secy/DOT mentioned that BSNL Management must approach DOT and in very clear terms convey its willingness to execute this project on terms and conditions like transfer of Network to BSNL after installation etc and hence BSNL will not get any capital from USOF for execution of this project. Secy/DOT assured that DOT would be always willing to give first preference to BSNL provided BSNL is ready to abide by terms and conditions decided for the project and execute the project within stipulated timelines.         

In the meantime Smt Annie Moreas, Member(Finance)/DOT also joined the discussions and she too very clearly indicated that DOT would be always ready and keen to listen to BSNL on such issues.

We also requested Secy/DOT and Member(Finance)/DOT to expeditiously resolve long pending issue of merger of 78.2% IDA with basic in respect of all those having retired from BSNL prior to 10th June 2013. Both Secy/DOT and M(F)/DOT responded very positively and quickly by reiterating that the issue is virtually on the final stages of resolution as far as DOT is concerned and very shortly will be sent to DOE for its concurrence. All the queries raised by DOE in this regard are being responded to by DOT on a very positive note.  

16th May 2014 Meeting with GM(FP): Com K Sebastin, GS and both AGSs Com Arvind Dahiya and Com Vivek Wankhede met GM(FP) on 15.05.2014 and discussed:

a) Promotion from JAO to AO: GM(FP) informed that the reply from DoT is still awaited. However preparatory work is going on but the progress is not good. So far the assessment sheet and details received from five or six Circles only.

b) AO/Sr AO to CAO (Adhoc) promotion: The proposal to divert MT quota of about 165 posts for CAO(Adhoc) promotion is sent to MC for the approval. Once divertion is approved, further acton will be taken.

c)  AO/Sr AO/ to CAO (Adhoc)  to CAO (Regular) promotion: Necessary action is already initiated for regular promotion:

d)   CAO to DGM(Adhoc) promotion: The DPC is over and the minutes are submitted for the approval of competent authority. It is expected that about 160 Executives will be covered by this promotion of which VC for about 25 cases are pending.

e)CAO/DGM(Adhoc) to DGM(Regular) promotion: The DPC work is already initiated for about 150 posts.
