4th April 2014 Meeting with DIR(HR): GS Com K Sebastin, President Com G L Jogi and AGS Com Vivek Wankhede met Sri A N Rai, DIR(HR) on 02.04.2014 and discussed:
a)    Amendment to BSNLMS RR in case of promotion from SDE (C/E) to EE(C/E): DIR(HR) informed that the proposal is under the active consideration of BSNL Management. However the claim of different stake holders on the matter to be examined. Assn strongly pleaded for bringing parity at par with other streams like Telecom / Finance etc as that will be the best solution available. DIR(HR) agreed to examine the proposal with the relevant facts and legal issues before taking a final decision. As the amendment may take few months time and the new RR will be in force from the date of notification, Assn requested to complete the DPCs at the earliest. 
b)    DPC from JTO to SDE, SDE to DE and DE to DGM: DIR(HR) informed that they are waiting for the decision from Hon CAT on JTO to SDE promotion. On SDE to DE and DE to DGM promotions, BSNL is filing an IA in the Hon Supreme Court seeking clarifications on the interim order of “status on seniority” citing the acute shortage. 
c)    Tenure transfer and issuing transfer orders well before completion of tenure: Nowadays, it is observed that even after completion of tenure, the transfer orders are not issued by BSNLCO resulting in overstay in tenure places. There is no meaning in declaring these stations as tenure places if the officials are forced to overstay there, Assn pointed out. The tenure transfer order of officials completed tenure at Leh in J&K on 23.02.2014 (with -14 degree temp), not issued even today. The transfer orders are not issued on flimsy grounds that the applications are not received through proper channel etc. Assn demanded that the tenure transfer orders should be issued well in advance, two months before the completion of tenure and the officials should be relieved immediately after completion of tenure without waiting for the substitute. All data is available in the HRMS package like date of joining, leave etc and BSNLCO has to act on the HRMS data based on the advance copy if the formal forwarding letter not received well in advance.  DIR(HR) immediately directed GM(P) to make a waiting list at Pers section and issue transfer orders well in advance from the list.  
d)    Rule 8 transfer cases: Assn requested to consider the Rule 8 cases as large no of JTOs completed more than 8 years and some of the female JTOs are staying with their small kids and some are finding it difficult to get suitable marriage alliance. Now TTA to JTO LICE candidates joined in the Circles as JTOs and CGMs will be in a position to consider the cases. DIR(HR) assured to take up the matter with the CGMs immediately.
e)    Retention of the officials after 31.03.2014: DIR(HR) mentioned that the retention upto 31.03.2014 given in order to give sufficient time to move to the new places after making suitable arrangements and now all have to move to the new places. Assn requested to consider the genuine medical cases like cancer, mental and physical retarded cases of self and family members etc and the immunity cases as per the rule. DIR(HR) agreed to examine such cases.

15th March 2014 What forced SNEA(I) to launch agitation programme:
Promotion from JTO(T) to SDE(T) under 67% quota for the vacancy years 2009-10 onwards, JAO to AO promotions, holding of LDCE from JTO(T) to SDE(T) against 33% quota for the vacancy years 2010-11 onwards, SDE to DE promotions in all streams, DE to DGM promotions. Increase the number of Management Trainees (Intl) from the proposed 150 to a minimum of 300.

The preparatory work for JTO(T) to SDE(T) promotion started two years back. The JTOs recruited for 1995 vacancy year is waiting for their first promotion for the last 17 to 18 years, the level of stagnation we witnessed in DoT period of 1990s. Vacancies from 2009-10 onwards lying unfilled! The All India Eligibility list prepared, ACRs and VCs collected, months back.Then why not DPC and promotions? The answer is very simple. BSNL Mgt could not get the stay vacated from Hon CAT, EKM. More frankly, CGMT/KRL and his team not taken any step to get the stay vacated even after the intervention of DIR(HR)! CGMs are not listening to the CMD / DIR(HR)/ BSNLCO? Our Board of Directors to introspect. Assn put the best legal team available in Ernakulam in the name of respondents, but as the main affected party, BSNL, not coming forward to defend the case, understanding the gravity of the situation, then what option left for us?

Similarly LDCE quota from 2010-11 is also pending. Now the Mgt agreed to simplify the papers by making it a single paper, but the process is not picking up momentum. It can take few weeks time but not months or years together. LDCE is a fast track promotion to motivate the talented performers and if it is not happening for years together, then where is the motivation? The very purpose of conducting LDCE is getting defeated.

SDEs promoted in 1994 are still waiting for their DE promotion when more than 2700 DE posts out of 3978 in the 75% quota lying vacant! Of course some of them are working as Adhoc DEs. The vacancies of 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 remains unfilled. We are really grateful to BSNL Mgt for taking a decision to end Adhocism in DE promotion. But it has to translate into promotions. VCs are called repeatedly, getting expired. The legal complications on seniority, created by DoT/BSNL is the main hurdle. Even then, BSNL can go ahead with promotions as done earlier, if it has the will to do it and give promotions to the eligible candidates. Otherwise there are so many of excuses, this court case, that court case etc.Whenever Mgt took bold decision either in 2010 or in 2013, we had seen they are coming out successful with promotion orders. The situation in 2014 is not different. Only missing link is the will power of BSNL Management to go ahead with promotions!

JAO to AO promotions also delayed years together due to court cases between BSNL absorbed JAOs, postal JAOs and BSNL recruited JAOs. Another court case on roster matter. Now legal hurdles are over and there are sufficient no of vacancies to accommodate all the sections. Again some bold decisions on the judgment is to be taken by BSNL Mgt to effect promotions. When BSNL Mgt is competent to take decisions, there is no justification to seek clarifications from DoT or DOPT.  

Amendment to BSNLMS RR for making Diploma holders also eligible for SDE(C/E/Arch) to EE(C/E/Arch) promotion is under the consideration of Mgt for long time. When parity brought in all the cadres for scales, time bound promotions etc, the undue delay in the amendment causing heartburns among the senior comrades of Civil/Elect/Arch wings.  The Mgt should act swiftly to make the necessary amendments. 

DE to DGM promotions: Few years back, there was no eligible candidate in BSNL for DGM promotions. Today hundreds of Executives are eligible for DE promotions and field units are suffering due to shortage of DGMs. About 40% DGM posts are vacant. All the preparatory work completed but again the bold decision from the management to give promotions to the eligible candidates.

MT (Intl) recruitment started in 2007 for filling up the vacuum in the top Management. In 2014 also, situation is not different. The proposal is lying idle in the rect cell. In 2009, the decision was to rect 500 MTs. After 5 years, the proposal is to recruit 150 MTs. In other words, BSNL Mgt is in the reverse gear. Not only the DoT recruits, even the BSNL rects are crossing 40 years of age, the eligibility condition. When vacancies and requirements are more, recruitment in less number!

These promotions should continue till the Time Bound Functional promotion concept is implemented in BSNL. All the vacant posts to be filled up on war footing as seniors are retiring without getting their eligible promotions even at the fag end of their service. The youngsters to be motivated to get better performance. 

When initiative and urgency on the part of the management missing, when persuasions not yielding desired results, what option left for us now?

13th March 2014

What forced SNEA(I) to launch agitation programme: 
30% Superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees
As per DPE order dated 26.11.2008, "CPSE would be allowed 30% of basic pay as superannuation benefits, which may include CPF, Gratuity, Pension and Post Retirement Medical Benefits. The CPSEs should formulate their own mechanisms to manage these funds on their own or operate these through insurance companies on fixed contribution basis“. It was later clarified by DPE vide letter dated 02.4.2009, which states that “The ceiling of 30% towards superannuation benefit would be calculated on Basic pay + IDA, instead of Basic pay alone. CPSEs that do not have superannuation scheme may formulate such scheme and obtain the approval of their administrative Ministry“. DPE fixed the upper ceiling of 30% of BP+IDA, providing liberty to CPSEs to determine and decide the split up of each component of 30% regarding PF, Gratuity, pension and PRMB. CPSUs like BHEL, Coal India, NTPC, Power Grid Corporation, NLC, AAI, EIL have already implemented this scheme w.e.f 01.01.2007. They are contributing uniformly 12% towards PF, 8% to 9.31% towards gratuity plus PRMB and 8.5% to 10% towards pension within the ceiling of 30%.
Trust should be constituted to monitor the implementation of scheme in transparent and smooth manner. The trust should be jointly managed by the nominees from Employer as well as from Employees for purpose of transparency and accountability. The date of effect of the scheme should be 01.01.2007 instead of “date of approval of the scheme by the Administrative Ministry”. The date of effect from 1.1.2007 is being uniformly followed by all the CPSEs. There is absolutely no rationale or justification for BSNL Management to take a decision contrary to what is decided by all CPSEs. 
Govt. proposed introduction of these schemes as social security measures for the welfare of the employees. At present, BSNL is making contribution of 12% towards EPF. The present BSNL MR scheme is one of the best medical facilities available in the country with 100% reimbursement and it should continue as it is. The component for gratuity and PMRB should be worked out accordingly in comparison with other CPSEs and the remaining amount has to be contributed by BSNL making the total contribution reaches the ceiling of 30%. 
BSNL Management’s argument that “unlike other PSUs which implemented this scheme, BSNL is a loss making PSU and none of the loss making PSU implemented this scheme” is not a proper justification at all with regard to retirement benefits? Is BSNL was a loss making PSU on 01.01.2007, the crucial date or on 26.11.2008, the date of DPE order?  Loss or profit alone cannot be a criteria to decide the pay and terminal benefits. It is our duty to protect the future of all our employees.  Future of the absorbed employees are protected by Govt pension, the future of the BSNL recruited employees can be protected only by this scheme with full 30% contribution.

13th March 2014 What forced SNEA(I) to launch agitation programme:
Formation of subsidiary tower company, move to merge BSNL & MTNL without settling the critical policy issues, no strategy/initiative to counter the threat of Reliance-Jio, pension contribution on actual basic, not allowing BSNL to trade and share spectrum---.
BSNL is the only CPSU in the country having 100% Govt holding. Earlier move of the Govt to disinvest BSNL and unbundle copper cable were defeated by the employees through continuous struggle. Now, in the name of revival and revitalization of BSNL, the EGoM and Govt trying to dismantle BSNL by forming different subsidiary companies, one for towers, second may be for land asset and the third for Optical Fibre Corporation. Already BBNL is formed. Ultimately, these subsidiaries will be disinvested through strategic sales, leading to disinvestment of BSNL. When Govt proposes and facilitates merger and acquisition for the pvt players, why its own company BSNL is being dismantled by forming subsidiaries? After the subsidiary formation, what is left in BSNL, 2.4 lakh employees! Can we, be a silent spectator to witness the dismantling of our beloved company BSNL?
As on today MTNL is having more than 13,000 Cr bank liability and paying about 1,500 Cr as interest alone per year. More than 44% of MTNL share is in the market. Large number of HR issues are pending to be sorted out.Without taking over the market liability and buying back the shares by Govt and sorting out the HR related issue, is the merger really going to help revival of BSNL & MTNL? Will it not be another Indian Airlines-Air India experiment?
Reliance –Jio is putting towers at every 500 meters in nook and corner of the country. It is reported that they are going to launch 4G services this year itself. Entire our BB and 3G customers will be their target. Whether our BSNL Management is having any plan or strategy to counter this move and protect the high end subscribers? Nothing is visible as on today. Can we allow this to continue?
After VI CPC implementation, the pension contribution shall be paid on the actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale for all the employees covered under CCS pension rules, 1972. BSNL absorbed employees are covered under CCS pension rules, 1972. Then why DoT/Govt is forcing BSNL to pay pension contribution on maximum of the pay scale? Why they are forcing BSNL to pay Rs 300 Cr excess each year and under which rule?
Spectrum trading and sharing is allowed for those who got the spectrum through auction! What about BSNL? Is the Govt policies are framed to help pvt players and finish BSNL?
Future of our employees at stake! There are employees and Executives with 5 years, 10 years, 20 years and 30 years of service left. What about their future, ie. our future, if the company is allowed to be systematically dismantled like this, in the pretext of revival? Where we will go? Can we allow this to happen?If we allow, then our struggle in the future will not be for any pay or perks or promotion or pensionary benefits, but it will be for our salary!

Vijay Kumar Singh director (ADM), Department of Expenditure on 10-03-2014 and discussed the issue of 78.2% IDA merger to BSNL pensioners. Convener pointed out that there has been much delay in the DoE and requested for early approval.

5th March 2014 TESA FLASH: Editorial- February, 2014
Struggle and struggle alone is the only path to fight and defeat anarchy – demotion of basic cadre and prolonged neglect of resolution of other key issues is anarchy - let us not just look back.

For the last couple of years we were singularly and intensely engrossed in addressing key issues of revival of our beloved company more than the cadre issues since we have a deep rooted and well founded conviction that “we can grow only when the company grows”. At the same time, we have been relentlessly pursuing resolution of left over critical issues related to 2nd PRC on which DPE/Govt has taken decision like standard pay scales, 30% superannuation to BSNL recruits etc.Resolution of other equally important issues like uniformity in first time bound promotion, removal of pay anomalies, antedating of increment were also high on our agenda. Even after three years of intense persuasion, virtually none of the above issues was ever seriously considered by Management for resolution.

The last nail in the coffin was dug recently when the basic cadre of JTO was arbitrarily demoted from E1A to E1 scale and that too when the committee constituted two years back to examine introduction of standard pay scales did not even meet once to discuss the issue. This is anarchy and anarchy has to be exposed and defeated through struggle alone. What else is needed to trigger industrial unrest and if we don’t succeed in defeating this situation and correcting this aberration, in 2017 we will land in a situation where we will be completely left high and dry as far as we getting standard pay scales are concerned.

Unresolved issues related to TBP policy, non settlement of pay anomaly issues which has created intense heartburning amongst our members for obvious reasons has resulted in a situation where our comrades are facing recovery of lakhs of rupees at the time of their superannuation and reduction of their pension by one to two increments, are pending since 2007. The stagnation in JTO cadre has reached yet again alarming proportion of about 20 years to the one we witnessed in 1990s. JTOs of 1995 batch are waiting for their first promotion when more than 5000 SDE posts are lying vacant for years together. The situation as far as JAO to AO, SDE to DE and DE to DGM promotions in different streams is no different.  Management takes shelter under Court cases to justify inordinate delay in issuing promotion orders and virtually does not take any concrete and timely action to defend provisions of RRs being legally challenged indiscriminately or takes no corrective action to avoid litigations.

Sinister moves of policy makers and vested interests to dismantle the company by formation of subsidiaries, merger of BSNL & MTNL without addressing critical issues like government owning up fully market liabilities of MTNL, disinvestment of about 45% equity of MTNL, and cadre issues, total inaction on the part of BSNL Management to formulate strategy to counter Reliance –Jio, pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale are very important and strategic issues related to the viability and future of our company which need to be comprehensively and conclusively addressed.

All these developments have compelled the Association to go on to the streets. We pursed with utmost sincerity for years together to resolve the issues across the table but the response from the Management to say the least was disappointing, rather negative. Committees constituted by the competent authority to address the issues of standard pay scales did not even meet once, not even to receive inputs from the Associations to justify the demand of extending standard pay scales. If we are not alert and proactive, the standard pay scale issue may get reduced to a pay anomaly issue or pay parity issue as we are presently witnessing. Long term and comprehensive resolution is getting standard pay scales, not addressing the issue in a piecemeal manner like giving some increments here and there. That could be dangerous. Best scheme of time bound promotions that we have as of now may become a nightmare in the future. 30% superannuation might be restricted to a mere 2%, the DPCs may be delayed years together. Our beloved company will be destabilized, dismantled and eventually disinvested. Comrades, let us wake up, struggle unitedly, shoulder to shoulder, to protect our company, to protect our genuine career prospects.

The decision of NTEA to join hands with SNEA(I) and struggle together to address unresolved critical issues of career growth of executives like standard pay scales, CPSU cadre hierarchy and 30% superannuation benefits and also larger issues of the growth of the Company is a welcome and healthy move which will surely strengthen forces of unity and eventually contribute towards expeditious resolution of just and legitimate issues of career growth.

Yes comrades, we have started our struggle and it has to reach its logical conclusion, may be in stages. But one phase of struggle will lead to another and this will continue till we reach our destination. We have to be resolute and committed to the cause. This struggle will have to create history yet again in terms of the basic cadre of JTO having to regain its pristine glory. This struggle has to succeed to get our very justified demand of standard pay scales resolved, to put in place a mechanism of time bound functional promotion, to achieve our just demand of 30% superannuation benefits etc. This struggle will be very important in the context of addressing critical issues of career growth which have been neglected by callous and unconcerned BSNL Management. This struggle has to defeat the designs of vested interests that are hell bent upon to dismantle and disintegrate the Company. This struggle has to protect the Company from getting disinvested, This struggle has to defeat the moves of policy makers to impose huge market liability of MTNL on BSNL in the name of merger of MTNL and BSNL. Merger of two companies is ideal provided it is brought about in objective terms.

Thus Comrades let us come out courageously, fearlessly and unitedly and make the Organizational programmes of 6th March  and 19th March onwards an astounding success to force the Management and policy makers to address these issues conclusively. We have yet again to demonstrate our strength, our unity. Our voice across the country, from East to West, North to South must be heard in loud and clear terms by BSNL Management in the coming days so as to wake up the management from deep slumber. We should not look back till we achieve ours goal.
5th March 2014 Meeting with Sri. V. Umashankar, Jt Secy/DOT on 05.03.2014: GS and President had a very detailed and meaningful discussion on following important issues.
A)  Pension contribution by BSNL on actual basic instead of on maximum of scale: We apprised Jt Secy/DOT in detail about the discussions that we have had with Hon MOS, DOPT, Sh Narayanasamy, and the follow up extensive discussions we had with Jt Secy/DOP&PW and Jt Secy/DOPT on the issue of pension contribution by BSNL on actual basic in terms of the decision taken by the Union Cabinet at the time of formation of BSNL in year 2000 that pension and issues related to pension for BSNL absorbed employees would be strictly regulated in conformity with Central Govt. departments. In that context, BSNL is to pay pension on actual basic as all other Central Govt. departments are paying.
This stand of ours was adequately appreciated by Jt Secy/DOPT who advised us to ask DOT to move the case afresh for consideration by DOPT and DOE. Secy/DOT also assured us on 4th March that he would also reconsider examining the issue of pension contribution on actual basic by BSNL. In view of all these developments, we requested Jt Secy/DOT to initiate the note afresh for consideration of DOPT and DOE. Jt secy/DOT assured that within ten days he would initiate action on this issue and advised us to pursue the case thereafter with DOPT and DOE.
B) Issue of standard IDA pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs/SDES etc: We informed JtSecy/DOT about our discussions very recently with Jt Sec/DPE on the decision of BSNL management to introduce non standard IDA pay scales of E1 and E2 for JTOs/SDEs. We told Jt Secy/DOT that Jt Sec/DPE clearly told us that DPE would not rescind its decision of allowing non standard IDA scales in CPSUs. In this context, we requested Jt Secy/DOT to abandon the move of referring non standard pay scales of E1 and E2 to DPE for consideration and instead direct BSNL to consider extending standard scales of E2 and E3 as directed by DPE. However, Jt Secy/DOT mentioned that this issue is to be decided by BSNL management.   
C) Merger of BSNL and MTNL: We conveyed our serious and justified apprehensions on the issue of merger like BSNL being burdened with huge market liability of about 13000 crores that MTNL has, Governments stake in BSNL getting diluted because govt’s holding in MTNL is already offloaded to the extent of 44% MTNL and very contentious and complex HR issues. However, Jt Secy/DOT elaborately spelt out meticulous and structured mechanism that Govt. is to adopt to address these legitimate concerns of BSNL before taking a final call on the issue of merger.
5th March 2014 Meeting with Secy/DOT on 4th March, 2014:
Com V.A.N. Namboodiri, convener Jt Forum, CHQ President and GS/SNEA(I) and GS/AIBSNLEA met Secy/DOT and apprised him of serious concern of BSNL employees on the issue of merger of BSNL and MTNL without comprehensively sorting out some critical and basic issues like Govt. taking complete responsibility of the liabilities of MTNL, disinvestment of existing 44% shares of MTNL not affecting the 100% stake that govt. holds in BSNL and addressing contentious HR issues. Secy/DOT assured that all our concerns would be adequately addressed and met and that we would be taken in full confidence before any decision is taken by Govt. on the issue of merger.
On the issue of formation of a subsidiary tower Company also we expressed our serious apprehensions since such a move would disintegrate BSNL eventually resulting in hiving off potential tower business of BSNL. Secy/DOT assured that this issue would also be discussed with us. On the issue of pension contribution by BSNL on maximum of scale instead on actual basic, Secy/DOT assured that he would once again reexamine the issue in the context of commitment made to BSNL employees at the time absorption in BSNL. The meeting lasted for about 45 minutes and was held in a very cordial and frank atmosphere.
5th March 2014 Recruitment Year would be the year of initiating the recruitment process against a vacancy year.

3) 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees as per the agreement between the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations and the BSNL Mgt on 12.06.2012.

4) Dismantling BSNL by constituting subsidiary tower Company:

5) Abject and unpardonable failure of BSNL Management in not responding to deadly emerging challenges that growth of Company faces, particularly its potential broadband business segment, from its competitors, particularly Reliance- Jio venture.

6) Pension contribution by BSNL on actual basic pay instead of on maximum

7) Discriminating BSNL in the context of not allowing it to trade and share spectrum

8) Promotion from JTO(T) to SDE(T) under 67% quota for the vacancy years 2009-10 onwards, JAO to AO promotions, holding of LDCE from JTO(T) to SDE(T) against 33% quota for the vacancy years 2010-11 onwards, SDE to DE promotions in all streams, DE to DGM promotions.

9) Settlement of long pending pay anomalies i) Pay protection during officiating promotion till the implementation of TBP ii) Antedating of increment iii) Senior drawing less pay than Junior after promotions.

10)     Increase the number of Management Trainees (Intl) from the proposed 150 to a minimum of 300 and take expeditious action to complete the recruitment process.

The meeting lasted for more than two hours. During the meeting, Assn made the stand clear on all the issues to the Mgt side. Mgt side explained their stand on the issues as usual. The issues raised in the letter dated 25.02.2014 related to Govt will be referred to DoT for further actions. On the query why management is not implementing E2, E3, E4 etc pay scales when the financial implication is minimum and no financial implications for the Executives working as on 31.12.2006, Mgt had no convincing answer.

 

Comrades, Management is in no mood to implement the standard pay scales or settling the other issues in a time bound manner. Gear up for the full day Dharna on 06.03.2014 and relay hunger strike on 19th March onwards.

4th March 2014 MTNL Pension: Govt notifies the amendment to CCS pension Rules 1972 and Rule 37A extending Govt pension to MTNL optees also w.e.f 01.10.2000 similar to BSNL optees.

14th Feb 2014 Important decisions of Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations meeting at New Delhi:

An emergency meeting of the Forum off BSNL Unions and Associations was held on 13.02.2014. The meeting seriously discussed the formation of subsidiary companies for tower asset, proposed merger of BSNL and MTNL as well as other recommendations of the GoM. The meeting also discussed about the expansion of BSNL networks to face competition. After detailed discussions, the meeting decided to submit a memorandum to the government on the following issues.

1) MTNL is having a huge market liability of around Rs.12,000 crores. Further, MTNL shares have already been sold in the market to the extent of 46%. Lot of HR issues are also there to resolve before merger. Under these circumstances, if BSNL and MTNL are merged, it will seriously affect the revival of both BSNL and MTNL. Hence, the meeting decided that the government should first address these issues comprehensively, before the merger of BSNL and MTNL.

2) The meeting strongly condemned the unilateral decisions taken by the BSNL Board to create subsidiary companies- one for the infrastructure and one for the land asset. The tower asset, land and the Optical Fibre network are the major strength of BSNL. If they are separated from BSNL, then nothing remain in BSNL leaving the 2.4 lakh employees. The meeting demanded that these decisions should be scrapped.

3) The meeting decided that the government should fully compensate the loss being incurred by BSNL, on account of running rural landline service only to meet the social obligations of the Govt.

4) The meeting decided that the government should extend soft loans to BSNL, to meet its capital expenditure, for procurement of equipments, for the immediate expansion/upgradation of its networks to face the aggressive competition from the competitors.

5) The meeting decided that, BSNL should be exempted from the payment that the government has stipulated for spectrum liberalisation. It may be noted that liberalisation of 900 Mhz spectrum is very much essential for BSNL to provide 4G service. BSNL should be given the freedom of spectrum trading, since it will help BSNL to mobilise resources. As per the conditions laid down by the GoM, BSNL cannot trade its spectrum.

6) The meeting decided that BSNL should be given freedom to procure equipments for all the four zones through tender. At present, the government has mandated that BSNL should procure 30% of the equipments (West Zone for mobile) only from ITI. Expansion of networks in the West Zone is seriously affected for the past so many years, as a result of this condition. ITI is not manufacturing any GSM equipment.

7) The meeting decided to write to the Prime Minister, demanding not to grant any extension of service to the incumbent CMD, after his superannuation, as well as to take immediate action to fill up the posts of DIR(HR) and DIR(Fin).

8) The meeting decided to further take up the issue of 30% superannuation benefit to the BSNL recruited employees with CMD/BSNL. BSNL recruited about 31983 employees (20016 Non Executives and 11967 Executives). In the agreement signed on 12.06.2012 with BSNL Mgt and Forum, BSNL agreed to review the decision.

Further course of Trade Union action will be intimated in due course.
Comrades, last few years, Association is struggling to resolve the long pending HR issues trough deliberations. Considering the stiff competition in the telecom field, as a responsible Association, we have resorted to great restraint, strictly following the path of negotiations, fully focusing on the growth and financial viability of the company. The Management appears to have exploited our concern for the prospects of the Company, in turn, closing its eyes on the genuine issues pending for a very long time. The lethargic attitude of the BSNL Management in looking at the serious issues, not to speak of resolving them, has left the Association with no other alternative but to serve notice for Trade Union actions demanding the immediate resolution of the issues. As per our Patna CWC decisions, we tried our level best to have a united struggle in the banner of United Forum but could not succeed. The proposed move to demote the basic cadres JTO/JAO to E1 scale and other major pending issues forced the Association to serve the notice.

11th Jan 2014 Notional date of promotion : In a major development, Hon Principal CAT, New Delhi extended notional date of promotion in its judgment dated 02.01.2014 in a case filed by the comrades of MTNL who passed the LDCE held in 2001 by DoT. This judgment of Hon PCAT will help other similar cases in different CATs. Hon PCAT directed to extend the benfit w.e.f 23.01.2002 as in the case of Hon Banglore Bench and further allowed arrears also (which was not allowed by Hon Banglore bench).
Operative portion of the judgment: "From the aforesaid facts of this OA, there cannot be any doubt that it is squarely covered by the order of the Bangalore Bench of this Tribunal in OA No.181/2009 (supra). For the same reason, the objection regarding delay and latches raised by the Respondents have no merit.  The Respondents have already granted the year-wise seniority to the Applicants as SDE.

10th Jan 2014 'The era of rising losses in BSNL has stopped' - R K Upadhyay CMD BSNL
With some considering it as a sinking ship, some connect because of the strong emotional bond, and a large chunk of people behaving indifferently, Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL) today evokes mixed feelings in the telecom industry. This sinking ship was boarded by an industry veteran Rakesh Kumar Upadhyay as its captain on April 2011, with determination and responsibilities to sail it through the troubled waters. Upadhyay, who will bid adieu on March 2014 after his three years tenure in the company, spoke to VOICE&DATA about BSNL’s future and its current challenges.

9th Jan 2014 Singular, exclusive, tireless and spectacular role of SNEA(I) in surrender of obsolete BWA spectrum band by BSNL and refund of spectrum charges by Government.
What BSNL Management ought to have done was remarkably and incredibly done by SNEA(I) when in October, 2010 it brought to the notice of then Secy/DOT, Sh R. Chandrashekar, that BSNL having paid market value of  Rs 8000 crores has been allocated an obsolete BWA spectrum band having no business utility since the band that BSNL has been allocated a band which lacks the flexibility of switching over to LTE platform and also economies of scale since international telecom gear manufacturers do not manufacture equipment in this redundant band.
Secy/DOT blatantly refused to acknowledge our statement of facts. However when we persisted, Secy/DOT summoned Wireless Advisor/DOT to ascertain facts. Secy/DOT was taken aback completely when Wireless Advisor endorsed what we said about redundancy of BWA spectrum band allocated to BSNL. Secy/DOT found it very hard to believe since BSNL Management never brought this important issue to his notice.
However, thereafter Secy/DOT advised us to create sufficient pressure on BSNL Management to force them to decide to surrender this obsolete spectrum band and seek refund of BWA spectrum fees paid by BSNL at market value.
And thus was the issue of refund of BWA spectrum fees to BSNL by Govt. born and with that started our tireless struggle to force BSNL Management to decide to surrender this spectrum band and seek its refund from Govt. But BSNL management was defiant and unrelenting to surrender this redundant spectrum band despite our persistent efforts. It was only when present CMD took over in April, 2011 that we found some response from him to consider surrender of BWA spectrum band and seek refund of BWA spectrum fees.
Thus the issue of surrender of BWA spectrum band and seek the refund of BWA spectrum fees was born just because of singular, tireless and spectacular intervention of this Association and the end result of this untiring and exclusive struggle of this Association today culminated in the decision of the Union Cabinet to refund BWA spectrum charges to both BSNL and MTNL.  This is truly historical as far as role of SNEA(I) in securing refund of BWA spectrum is concerned.
Kindly visit following letters written by us to recollect facts....
  1. Our letter SNEA(I)/CHQ/Hon MOC&IT/2/2-11 dated 2nd Feb, 2011 addressed to Sh. Kapil Sibal.
  2. Our letter SNEA(I)/CHQ/Hon MOC&IT/4/3-11 dated 17th March, 2011 addressed to Sh. Kapil Sibal.
  3. Our letter SNEA(I)/CHQ/Honble MPs/2/11-11 dated 4th Nov, 11 to MPs of consultative committee of telecom.
  4. Our letter SNEA(I)/CHQ/MOC&IT/2012-14 dated 22nd April, 2013 addressed to Sh.Kapil Sibal.
  5. Our memorandum CHQ/GOM/2012-14/01 dated 5th May, 2013 addressed to Chairman EGOM, Sh.P. Chidabaram.
Our struggle on this issue also reminds us how we fought against the decision of former telecom minister, Sh. A.Raja, to cancel tender for procurement of 45.5 million equipment of GSM in 2007. Also our exclusive action of filing a Writ Petition in Delhi High Court in Nov,2011 challenging providing of 3G services illegitimately by private operators through ICR pacts which were forbidden by policy. When our WP was admitted by Delhi High Court and notices were issues to DOT, then only DOT swung into action and issued notices to private operators restraining them from providing of 3G services through illegal ICR pacts. Today the issue is in Supreme Court only and only because we filed WP in Delhi HC in NOV 2011 forcing DOT to act against these operators by issuing notices to them since providing of pan india 3G services is exclusive domain of BSNL.

BSNL Board approved the proposal to ammend BSNLMS RR 2009 to increase the Regular STS quota from 50% to 75% 

It is understood that today BSNL Board approved the proposal to amend BSNLMS RR 2009 to increase the Regular STS quota from 50% to 75% (3978 posts) by ending decade old adhocism. SNEA(I) was making all out efforts for the last few years to end the adhocism by increasing the regular STS quota and reserving fixed no of posts(1325) for MT recruitment.In the meeting between SNEA(I) and CMD/BSNL on 20.08.2013, CMD accepted the demand and acted swiftly to get the amendment at the earliest. Last Board meeting, the matter was deferred due to some serious objections from some Board members. Last week we met all the Board members especially Additional Secretary DOT and DDG (TPF) again and explained the issue and requested to clear the proposal in todays Board meeting. This amendment will pave the way for further career progression of the Executives in the long run. Comrades, this is a great breakthrough. We are extremely thankful to Sri R. K. Upadhay, CMD/BSNL, Sri A N Rai, DIR (EB/HR), all other BSNL Board directors, GM(Pers)/Addl GM(Pers) etc for this amendment.

This is really a new year gift to BSNL Executives.

Editorial - November 2013(TESA FLASH)

Company’s restructuring in right direction and broader perspective critical for revival/revitalization. Conceptualization of elementary and   easily implementable HR reforms will go long way to catalyze revival. 
Restructuring and reforms in BSNL started way back in 2003 when the highly acclaimed KPMG was appointed as a consultant. But this effort, lacking sense of purpose and objective, as a consequence, produced only a still-born. BCG, not less renowned and reputed than the KPMG, was roped in 2008 and the end result was even worse. That these renowned global giant consultants could not do anything was not because of the organizational complexities but because of the vested interests of the top Management who felt their existence would be challenged once reforms are pushed through. Of course, the men in command also completely lacked the much needed professional acumen to execute the roadmap. Even elementary restructuring changes could not be pushed through because the restructuring wing was bogged down by narrow considerations, completely lacked the much needed field exposure and expertise essential for such tasks and also the minimum understanding of the ground realities. With all these inherent shortcomings, so called attempts to restructure and reform BSNL were just superficial, lacking objectivity, vision and commitment.
However some recent initiatives suggested in the just concluded HOCC seem to be working out like upgrading and downgrading some of the SSAs based on revenues and business. This Association has been pleading for this for quite some time but obviously due to very petty considerations, a thought was never given in this direction. Such proposition in the past was rejected by the BSNL Board since it was not projected with clarity and objectivity. But this time, CGMs, having an in depth understanding and exposure of the working of the field units, put their foot down and pleaded in HOCC to have a fresh look at this important issue and results are visible today. Another radical reform to be pushed through is to link past performance to posting of SSA/Circle heads rather than linking it to seniority. Performers should replace non performers and work shirkers as SSA/Circle heads.
This process has not to stop here. Merger of Project Circles with Maintenance regions and of QA and T&D Circles with territorial Circles in the shortest possible time to considerably reduce the establishment costs and also help redeployment of the surplus staff to badly needed and potential field units has to be expeditiously implemented. These elementary changes should have come through long time back.
Introduction of a performance Management system in BSNL is yet another critical HR initiative the Association has been pleading hard to introduce for a long time. BSNL introduced the Balanced Business Score Card which turned out to be a big farce, again due to total lack of purpose, commitment and sincerity to enforce. For quite some time now we have been hearing of introduction of mechanism to measure performance in objective terms in the form of IPMS. Take it from us it is going to be yet another big fiasco the way it is going about.
  
Mechanism to measure performance in objective parameters and thereby link it to career growth is dire need of the Company since performers and work shirkers which are as of now on the same platform have to be segregated. This will give real impetus to the growth of the Company and make all the difference. Entire landscape of the Company will undergo a paradigm shift. It is only a question of conceptualizing, understanding and putting through this HR reform. Seen in this context, introduction of CPSU cadre hierarchy is just appropriate provided its huge significance and impact on the growth of the Company is understood in proper context, without prejudice and bias and, in the larger interests of the Company.
It is very high time for the Management to recognize the potential of talented and performing Human Resources in the Company and think over a concerted approach on HR activities. Implementable and useful short term reforms can be easily pushed through right now by constituting a dedicated team having sufficient field exposure. This team comprising of Restructuring, Establishment, Personnel, Recruitment and Training can be preferably headed by an ED. The success of this team will undoubtedly depend on to what extent it is ready to shed all inhibitions and narrow considerations and its   acknowledgment of the fact that Human Resource is a huge asset, not garbage the way it is treated. It can easily and quickly come out with a genuine and executable roadmap for restructuring, manpower deployment and its optimum utilization. This simple effort will go a long way in catalyzing the process of revival.

12th Nov 2013 EDITORIAL:

Clarion call of Patna CWC – loud and clear -


Strengthen SNEA(I), strengthen BSNL: 


CWC meeting which just concluded at Patna had marathon and brainstorming discussions on both issues of growth of the Company as well as career growth of our members. While acknowledging the Herculean and singular effort of the Association in accomplishing unprecedented and huge breakthroughs in the past in career growth of our Comrades in terms of upgradtion of pay scales and status, getting thousands and thousands of Comrades promoted in different cadres, resolving basic conditions of absorption in BSNL like pay scales, time bound promotions, BSNL MS RRs which cleared bottlenecks of the past three decades and define and assure functional career growth up to top Management level for our young comrades, recent improvisation in BSNL MR RRs which is expected to end decades old adhocism in STS and usher in regular promotion to STS against 75% posts, streamlining transfer policy, continuing protracted legal battle to end deputation of ITS, merger of 50% IDA with basic, implementation of 2nd PRC report and recent huge breakthrough of 78.2% IDA merger, GSM tender and procurement, critical issues related to the policies and policy violations by private operators jeopardizing growth of the Company, highlighting failure of the top management of BSNL to introduce innovative business and HR reforms in the company, defeating move of the vested interests to unbundle copper, ensuring govt. continues to hold 100% equity in BSNL, pension revision etc., working committee also extensively deliberated on how to successfully face emerging formidable challenges of the future and strategies and plan of action to be adopted.

That future challenges are arduous and many were well acknowledged.  While on one hand we are to intensely and consistently struggle to keep our bread and butter alive, on the other motivational levels of our members have be good enough in terms of ensuring their career growth to keep things moving.We have the Himalayan task of facing our next pay revision which is just at our door step in the face of stark and dreadful reality of Company registering recurring losses for the last four years in a row. How do we go about in such a precariously poised situation is a big question? Do we move forward or continue stranded in the existing scales like many sick CPSUs continue in scales of 1992 and 1997? Moving forward unquestionably means Company has to grow and register profits to leverage and justify implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations in BSNL.

JTO, stepping stone and backbone of this Association and the Company at large, which was uplifted twice by this Association alone through relentless struggles today faces the threat of demotion unless we struggle and succeed in forcing the management to restore the pristine glory that this cadre earned through series of historic struggles from the platform of this Association. Standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTO and SDE are high on the agenda and imminent struggle to resolve this crucial issue is the resolution of this CWC which was focused in its deliberations on resolution of key issues of young Comrades.  CWC also unanimously resolved to relentlessly continue its crusade to force the management to introduce a very healthy, time tested and innovative HR measure in the name of CPSU cadre hierarchy. This measured and carefully evaluated HR mechanism of career growth based on objective paramerts of performance will not only motivate performers but will have a huge positive impact on the growth of the Company, besides ending spate of litigations on seniority that have killed our career growth. HR managers of the Company has to give up their conservative outlook and recognize the enormous potential of this strategic HR reform and eventually embrace it. CWC also recognized and underlined the importance of pushing Company’s front line stake holders to top positions of the management so as to end deputation of ITS in BSNL which has impacted the growth of the Company like anything. Seen in this context, CWC felt great importance of immediate MT recruitment from within the Company.

On the policy front, illegal 3G roaming, proposed move to allow spectrum sharing/trading and Intra Circle 3G Roaming, copper cable unbundling, BWA spectrum refund, compensation for the losing making rural wire line service which BSNL maintains to meet the social obligations of the Govt, disinvestment of the company etc. were identified as the challenges by this CWC before us as far as Govt’s policy is concerned. Procurement of stores, reforms in procurement policy, bringing reforms in the work culture, modernization of the network, professionalism in decision making and its implementation, safeguarding the company from attacks by vested interests, massive corruption etc. are the areas where continuous struggle is inevitable. 

Accomplishing HR issues is impossible Unless Company is brought out of the present mess and is healthy and starts growing. In the given very very difficult situation our primary task and responsibility is to revive BSNL and make it grow. Before next PRC, just within 3 years from now, we have to do it, by hook or crook, otherwise we will miss the bus. As in the past, we have to play the crucial role of revival of the Company in the coming days. Doctored prescription to achieve this is simple- conviction, determination, dedication and unwavering commitment. Thus clarion call of Patna CWC to our beloved members is very loud and clear: ”Strengthen SNEA(I) to strengthen BSNL”.

2nd Nov 2013 CWC meeting at Patna:

The CWC meeting held at Patna, Bihar on 25th and 26thOctober, 2013 was attended by all the Circles except NE II. The host circle made excellent arrangements for comfortable boarding and lodging of participants at Patliputra Sports Complex, Patna.

 

The CWC meeting started with flag hoisting by CHQ President. GS   presented a brief report of the activities during the intervening period since holding of CWC at Chennai. CWC started with a very positive note since long awaited promotion orders to DE (Regular) for the vacancy year 2010-11 was issued on the first day of CWC meet. CSs reported the Circle level activities, emphasizing on the issues related to revival of BSNL like quality of service, Change in work culture, redeployment, status of availability of stores, implementation of ERP project, financial condition during last few years etc, in addition to the organizational activities of the Circle.

 

The CWC discussed the following issues in detail and took following important decisions after extensive deliberations.

 

a) Standard Pay scales of E2, E3, E4 etc for JTO/JAO, SDE/AO and equivalent cadres,

b) Promotions in different wings from JTO/JAO to SDE/AO, Regular promotion from SDE/Adhoc DE to DE and Adhoc promotion from STS to JAG,
c) Time Bound functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy,
d) Amendment of BSNLMS RRs to fill up 75% posts of STS on regular basis and earmark the rest for MTs ending Adhocism,
e) ITS issue,
f) Membership verification among Executives’ Associations,
g) amendment to BSNLMS RR for promotion from SDE(C/E) etc to EE(C/E) etc, 
h) Seniority issues,
i)court cases related to seniority,
j) Holding of Circle / SSA Conferences,
k) First time bound promotion uniformly in 4 years for different cadres,
l) implementation of notional pay for JE/AE(C/E/) etc w.e.f 01.10.2000, equivalent to JAO cadre, 
m) Transfer policy etc. All the CWC members very actively participated in the discussions.

 In the concluding session, Sri Vijoy Kumar, CGMT/Bihar Circle, Com Chandeshwar Singh, GS/NFTE BSNL and Com V.K.Tomar, GS/MTNLEA briefly addressed the CWC.

2nd Nov 2013 Important decisions of CWC, Patna:

a) Standard Pay scales of E2, E3, E4 etc for JTO/JAO, SDE/AO and equivalent cadres: The CWC discussed the issue in detail and came to the unanimous conclusion that the 2007 and 2008 batch JTOs pay scale issue has to be resolved at the earliest. Further, CWC reiterated that it is an issue of the pay scale of the basic cadres, JTO/JAOs and SDE/AO etc. Various agencies like National productivity Council etc. evaluated the job content of the basic JTO cadre and underlined the strategic significance of these cadres and finally recommended upgraded pay scale for JTO cadre in 1986 which was further upgraded by 5th CPC in 1996 after strenuous efforts by the then TEOA(I).

 

The house concluded that the issue of financial implications in terms of pension contribution by BSNL on the maximum of the scale raised by the Management on earlier occasions is no longer a hurdle in resolution of the issue since it is understood that ministry of finance has concurred to the proposal of DOT to allow BSNL to make pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the scale. It is high time CWC felt for BSNL management to settle the issue by extending standard pay scales of E2, E3, E4 etc since financial implications are virtually negligible.

 

The CWC after extensive deliberations unanimously decided that the standard pay scale issue has to be resolved at the earliest and BSNL should not approach the 3rd PRC in an anomalous situation of intermediate pay scales. Further, CWC resolved that under no circumstances should the cadre of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO be allowed to be degraded or demoted by reducing the existing pay scale from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2. CWC resolved to go for trade union actions if the issue is not getting settled through discussions in the Joint Committee already constituted by BSNLO Management nearly 20 months before. CWC resolved that the possibility of struggle to resolve the issue under the banner of UF may be explored fully and if joint struggle is not materializing, SNEA(I) alone should go for struggle to settle this issue, the way we struggled years together for the upliftment of these cadres.

b) Time Bound functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy has to be pursued vigorously in the Joint committee. 

c)        Membership verification among Executives’ Associations: The membership verification process is initiated by the BSNL Mgt as demanded by all the Executives Associations. The Rules and regulations governing conduct of membership verification among Executive Associations in BSNL is expected to be notified shortly. The Circle, SSA, Branch level preparation should start immediately to face the membership verifications. All the Non members should be approached in the coming days to enroll them as our members.

 

The role of the Association in settling the basic cadre issues and ushering career growth for the Executives like pay scale upgradation in 1986, struggle for lateral advancement or time bound promotions in DoT during 1990s, pay scale upgradation in 1996 and conferment of Group B Gazetted status to JTO cadre which ensured absorption of JTO in the Executive category, struggle for getting terms and conditions of absorption in BSNL defined and thereby defeating the sinister designs of management to absorb us as bonded laborers by offering us just Rs 2000/- as interim relief, struggle for getting improvised IDA pay scales and time bound promotion policy etc under the banner of “Executive Negotiating Council (ENC)”, comprising TEOA(I), BSNLEA and MTNLEA which also ensured that the pay scale of E1A, E2A, E3, E4 etc uniformly extended for all the Executives irrespective of whether absorbed or recruited in BSNL (when BSNL Mgt was firm to give only E1 scale to BSNL recruits as is being done today), five assured Time bound promotions within 4 to 6 years of residency period, EPF contribution by BSNL @ 12% of basic + IDA without ceiling instead of a fixed amount @12% of Rs 6500/- irrespective of emoluments which was followed in BSNL from the year 2001 to 2005, BSNLMS RR 2009 which ensures career growth up to CGM level by breaking the bottle neck of JTS and ensuring DE regular promotion from 0% to 50%, and again now to 75%, reducing Extl MT quota from 100% to 25% and now to 12.5%, LDCE for faster career growth for young Executives, implementation of 2nd PRC report and 78.2% IDA fitment in BSNL, JTO to SDE, SDE to DE and DE to DGM promotions in different wings etc. must be given extensive coverage and brought to the notice of the Executives.

 

The struggle on policy issues related to Govt. which adversely impact the growth of the company, completion of ITS absorption through legal battle, cancellation of 2G tender in 2007, illegal 3G roaming and selling of service by pvt operators without spectrum and licence, surrender of redundant BWA spectrum and refund of BWA spectrum charges, pension contribution by BSNL on actual basic instead of the maximum of the scale, procurement of store, redeployment, change in work culture and attitude etc etc. has to continue with resolution and commitment.

d) Constitution amendment committee was constituted with Com George Varghese as Chairman, Com Dilip Saha, Com B G Patel and Com R C Tripathi as members. The committee will submit its recommendations in the next CWC meeting.

e) The CWC unanimously decided to grant Circle status to SNEA(I), A&N Circle.

 

f)  Circle / SSA conferences have to be held in time.

a) JTO to SDE promotions: Assn demanded for immediate action to get clearance from Hon Ernakulam CAT for the JTO to SDE promotion. Immediate action is required to complete the DPC at the shortest time as JTOs of 1995 batch onwards are waiting for their first promotion. Meanwhile the efforts to complete the DPC for the missing cases of 2008-09 vacancies are going on. After this DPC, the DPC for the years 2009-10 onwards can be started. Sr GM informed that the DPC related work already started as most of the ACRs are received from the Circles. The scrutiny of the assessment sheet and ACRs received from the Circle is going on. 
b) DE (Regular)/ Adhoc promotion: Sr GM informed that the DPC is in the final stage for the vac year 2010-11. The resultant vacancy in SDE cadre on DE promotion is very much useful to give promotion from JTO to SDE cadre.

11th Sep 2013 Meeting with Sri A N Rai, DIR(HR): GS, AGSs Com Arvind Dahiya and Com V M Wankhede met DIR(HR) on 10.09.2013 and held discussions on the following issues:

a) Standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc for JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs etc.

Assn drawn the attention of DIR(HR) about this long pending issue. Almost 5 years back, 2007 batch JTOs joined in BSNL but so far their pay scale is not fixed. Reduction of pay scale from E1A to E1 is nothing but demotion of the cadre itself evenif 5 increments are given. For SDE/AO grade also , E2 scale is fixed provisionally, so the TBP from JTO/JAO to SDE/AO grade also become provisional.  Their further promotions also will became disputed. Assn pleaded strongly for the resolution of this most important cadre issue. The pay scale of the basic cadre itself is not finalised, it is to be taken seriously. After discussion, DIR(HR) assured that this issue will be discussed in the Management Committee.

b) JTO to SDE promotion under seniority quota:

Assn requested to expedite the DPC work as almost all the ACRs and VC received from the Circles. JTOs of 1995 batch waiting for the promotion even after 17 years. DIR(HR) assured to expedite the DPC work.

c) MC approval for BSNLMS RR amendment keeping 1000 STS posts for MT rect and filling the remaining posts on regular basis and the proposal for relaxation of qualifying service for promotion to DGM posts:

DIR(HR) informed that some discussions already took place in the Management Committee and the proposal will be cleared after further discussions.            

d) Modification to nearby Circles for SDE to DE(Adhoc) promotions:Assn requested to consider the request for modification to nearby Circles like AP, KRL, MH etc. After discussion DIR(HR) informed that while posting certain criteria like seniority has been maintained. So any modification can be done based on seniority only.

e) Modification in respect of LDCE candidates: Assn brought to the notice of DIR(HR) that lot of rumours are spreading in the field units that modification of posting orders will be taking place and most of the JTOs promoted and posted to other Circles are on leave for so many days anticipating modification. We requested DIR(HR) to end this uncertainity by modifying all the cases. DIR(HR) clearly told us that Management has already taken a decision at CMD and DIR(HR) level that there will be no change in the Circle of posting. By this it is clear that there was no movement or proposal or assurance to  modify the LDCE postings and whatever the rumours spread in the field units have no base at all. Those who are interested to join the promotional posts may join immediately, DIR(HR) informed. Management is even proposing to cancel the promotion orders of those JTOs / SDEs who are not joined so far.

c. 30% superannuation benefits to the BSNL recruited employees as per the agreement between Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations and BSNL Mgt on 12.06.2012.

d. Promotion from JTO to SDE under 67% quota for the vacancy years 2009-10, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 (as on today) considering the huge stagnation in the cadre of JTOs. Notification and holding of LDCE from JTO to SDE against 33% quota for the vacancy years 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13.

e. Filling up of 80% of STS posts on regular basis in all streams to end unwarranted adhocism - Appropriate amendment in BSNL MS RRs. Action to fill up the remaining DGM posts.

f. Settlement of EPF related issues like option for "Maximum pension" instead of "Minimum pension" and Centralised EPF payment etc.

g. Settlement of long pending pay anomalies like-(i) Antedating

(ii) Pay protection for the increments drawn during officiating promotion till the implementation of TBP policy and Senior drawing less pay than Junior after promotions and

(iii) DNI option on Adhoc promotions from a lower scale to a higher scale.

About 3500 JTOs have so far been regularized by diverting equal number of posts from direct recruitment quota of JTOs.........

6th Aug 2013 Meeting with GM(SR):

GS, CHQ President and both the AGSs at HQs met GM(SR) on 05.08.2013 and held discussions on immediate holding of Committee meetings to resolve the issues of E2, E3 standard pay scales and implementation of Time Bound functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy as per the terms and conditions of absorption. Association pointed out that the joint committee comprising of senior officers of BSNL management and the GSs of the United Forum has been constituted more than 18 months back but no progress has been made on these issues because of total lack of interest on part of officers of the management in the joint committee. This has created considerable resentment among the Executives, especially the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007.

GM(SR) informed that BSNL Management is sincerely trying to resolve the issues one after other on priority basis and resolution of these two issues requires lot of deliberations and that is the reason, the Joint Committee has been constituted. Management is trying to hold the meeting of the joint committee at the earliest and is very keen to resolve the issues in a time bound manner. We pleaded for very quick resolution of these issues.

Regularization of officiating JTOs:

CHQ President, AGSs Com Arvind Dahiya and Com V M Wankhade met Sri R. K. Goyal, GM(Estt) on 05.08.2013 and held detailed discussions on regularization of officiating JTOs. Association strongly pleaded for their regularization on a one time measure as the contempt petition at Hon Chandigargh High Court was dropped some days back. After detailed discussions GM(Estt) assured that very positive action would be taken after taking legal opinion on the issue. Association strongly pleaded for quick resolution of this highly justified issue. GS could not attend the meeting as he left for Kolkatta in the A/N to attend the WB State Branch Conference.

Association has been consistently pleading for the regularization of the officiating JTOs since 2004 by one time up gradation as per the decision of the CWC at Ludhiana.

6th Aug 2013

CS, CP and CHQ Office bearers meeting at YMCA Hall New Delhi on 02.08.2013.

 All the Circles except AS, NE II and JKD attended the meeting. After Presidential address GS briefed about the developments having taken place during the intervening period after the CWC meeting at Chennai in Jan 2013.
The meeting deliberated on the following issues:

a) Issues related to our young comrades like E2, E3 pay scales, 30% superannuation, EPF related issues and CPSU cadre hierarchy etc.

i) E2, E3 etc pay scales for JTO/JAO, SDE/AO etc and equivalent cadres is an issue that Assn has been pursuing since 2009 consequent upon implementation of 2nd PRC report. Another important issue related to pay revision, the 78.2% IDA fitment, was resolved through continuous struggle for the last four years by the Forum. After the implementation of 78.2% IDA fitment, the demand for standard pay scales of E2, E3 has become more and more justified and relevant since the difference in basic pay has increased from Rs 2600 to Rs 3800 for a newly recruited JTO. All the CSs opined that this issue has to be resolved on topmost priority as decided in our last AIC and Assn should go for strong trade union action if the issue is not resolved shortly though mutual discussions. Serious ground level preparations at the grass root should start immediately.

(ii) 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees:Assn will submit its response to the committee report within a few days. Further Assn will be interacting with other Unions/Assns in the Forum to have a common strategy on this issue.

Govt. pension for the BSNL absorbed was finalized prior to the Corportization and the gazette notification in this respect was issued on 30th Sept 2000 introducing Rule 37A in pension rules. In case of MTNL, it was finalised well before this as MTNL was formed since 1984. The pay scales of executives of BSNL and MTNL were settled after intense struggle under the banner of Executive Negotiating Council (ENC) comprising of TEOA, BSNLEA and MTNL EA. Later on TEOA and BSNLEA merged together and formed SNEA(I). No discussion or negotiation on pension was required at that point as the pension issue was settled for all the employees prior to formation of BSNL. None other than TEOA and BSNLEA participated  in the agitation for the pay scales and terms and condition for absorption in BSNL.

iii) EPF related issues: The most important issue faced by the BSNL recruited employees was the payment of EPF contribution on actual emoluments (Basic+IDA) instead of the maximum ceiling of Rs 6500.  Since 2001, BSNL Mgt was paying a fixed amount of Rs 780 (12% of Rs 6500) per month towards EPF contribution for all the employees irrespective of their emoluments. After 3 years of continuous pursuation by SNEA(I) alone, this issue has been resolved and BSNL Mgt issued orders in 2005 to pay the EPF subscription on actual emoluments without any ceiling or restriction of Rs 6500. Resolution of this issue not only benefited the Executives, but also the Non Executives recruited by BSNL.

Now remaining EPF related issues has to be pursued like a) maximum pension option in which pension is even better than Govt pension, b) centralised EPF payment and c) EPF statements. Assn is even exploring the possibility of approaching the Hon Court against the EPF authorities for getting an opportunity to exercise option for maximum pension. By default, the option is given as minimum pension for all the BSNL employees as none of them are aware of the fact that they have to exercise the option at the initial stage itself. In minimum pension option, a nominal amount is credited towards pension head and the remaining amount of the contribution is credited towards savings.

b) The promotion from JTO to SDE, SDE to DE (Adhoc/Regular) and DE to DGM. The DE(Adhoc) to DE(Reg) DPC is in progress.

c) JTO to SDE promotion under seniority quota: The ACRs from few Circles like AP, AS, JKD, WTP etc are pending. Assn is trying to complete the DPC at the earliest in order to issue the promotion orders for  the vacancies upto 2011-12 for which ACRs are called for.

d) JTO to SDE promotion under LDCE quota: Efforts are being taken to notify the next LDCE at the earliest.

e) Membership verification among Executives Associations: The BSNL Mgt has formed a committee to frame rules and regulations and the modalities for membership verification. The committee held two rounds of meeting. All the Circle /SSA/Branches must hold the conferences where  ever it is due and get ready for membership verification.

a)   BSNL should increase the PF contribution from the employer’s side from the   proposed 2% to 12%. 2% is too inadequate and not acceptable at all.

b)   The date of effect of the scheme should be 01.01.2007 instead of “date of approval of the scheme by the Administrative Ministry”. 

c)   The trust should be jointly managed by the nominees from Employer as well as from Employees for purpose of transparency and accountability.

28th July 2013 Repeat History of 1986 glorious struggle that uplifted the cadre of erstwhile JE to JTO and brought it pristine glory – Don’t let lose that glory by allowing BSNL Management/ Bureaucracy in DOT to denigrate cadre of JTO/SDE.

Get fully ready and gear up organizationally for sustained struggle to:

A) Restore lost glory of cadre of JTO/SDE. E2 and E3 are the only standard IDA scales that JTOs/SDEs of BSNL are legitimately and justly entitled to and qualified for, and

B) Implement time tested and foolproof cadre hierarchy mechanism of career growth of executives in CPSUs.

Senior Comrades of the organization will easily recapitulate the historical struggle of 1986 that uplifted the cadre of erstwhile JE which was in the pay scale of 425-700 to JTO and brought it pristine glory. That glorious struggle paved the way for all future struggles that were launched thereafter and further consolidated the position of JTO cadre. Another historical breakthrough for the cadre of JTOs/SDEs came in a big way in 1996 entirely because of the then Association of JTOs i.e JTOA(I) when JTO was further upgraded to 6500-10500 and conferred Group B gazetted status. This historical milestone alone facilitated absorption of cadre of JTOs as executives in BSNL, besides enabling TES Group B to be placed in the scale of 7500-12000.

Glorious struggle of 1986 did not bring any monetary benefit to Senior Comrades but uplifted the cadre in a big way and resulted in unprecedented monetary benefits to young Comrades. But there was no regret from the seniors who spearheaded the struggle with deep rooted conviction and finally steered it to great depths of victory. The launching pad of that historical struggle was the then JETA(I) which got transformed to JTOA(I) consequent upon change of designation from JE to JTO along with upgradation of pay scale.

From then onwards till now, we never looked back and continued our march with determination to help us consolidate our career growth in one way or the other. From the platform of the then JTOA(I), in 1990, when the functional stagnation of JTO reached unimaginable magnitude of 20 years, we struggled and succeeded for the first time in Govt. of India to get lateral advancement to the scale of TES Group B after 12 years so as to get some career growth relief.

This was followed by truly historical milestone in 1996 when cadre of JTO was further upgraded to 6500-10500 and conferred Group B gazetted status by Vth CPC. This was entirely because of intense and unprecedented persuasion and extraordinary ground work of the then JTOA(I) leadership. This remarkable breakthrough alone facilitated absorption of JTOs as executives in BSNL. 

Having uplifted the cadre of JTO/SDE(from 425-700 to present status) to such levels through continuous struggles, should we now allow BSNL Management to let lose our glory by demoting and denigrating the cadre of JTOs/SDEs and inflicting irreparable and irreversible damage on us? We should rise up in arms to defeat this diabolical move of DOT bureaucracy and BSNL Management. Can we afford a situation where 3rd PRC, due in 2017 is forced to place JTOs/SDEs in equivalent of existing standard E1 and E2 pay scales? No, never, not by any stretch of imagination. The only way out is to get ready for a protracted countrywide struggle to secure and safeguard our prestige and existing by forcing management to extend standard E2 and E3 IDA scales to JTOs/SDEs. This is the only way out. Get ready for this yet another struggle to defeat the ulterior motive of BSNL management to demote and humiliate us.

Similarly, on the crucial issue of ensuring our uninterrupted career growth, based on performance and free from the hassles of seniority that has virtually frozen our functional career growth, there is no other alternative but to introduce time tested and foolproof mechanism of cadre hierarch being very successfully implemented by all progressive CPSUs.Introducing this innovative HR mechanism will enormously help Company to grow since career growth would be linked to performance and would also be in conformity with the terms and conditions of our absorption which clearly envisage that a JTO will get promotion upto SG/JAG on time bound basis, between 4-6 years, regardless of the availability of posts which would be needed only after SAG onwards.

Diabolical designs of BSNL Management are clearly visible from the highly irresponsible and pathetic manner in which the committee that was constituted more than 20 months before by the competent authority to deliberate extensively on these twin crucial issues conducted, conveying very clear and loud message that BSNL Management is not at all interested in resolution of these key issues. To say the least, the way committee conducted in despicable manner deserves strongest condemnation.

Comrades, start making serious organizational preparation for what could be yet another historical and protracted struggle to safeguard and restore the dignity of the cadre of JTOs/SDEs. And, let seniors take big lead, the way they did in 1986, to spearhead and steer this struggle to victory.
25th July 2013 Request to immediately resolve very important issues of standard IDA pay scales of E2 and E3, introduction of mechanism of CPSU cadre hierarchy and 30% superannuation benefits to employees recruited in BSNL....... GS writes to CMD, BSNL.

To, CMD BSNL,

"Your goodself is fully aware that a committee with very specific terms of reference to examine two crucial issues of extension of standard IDA pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs/SDEs and introduction of CPSU cadre hierarchy was set up in Feb. 12 by competent authority and the committee was set a deadline of six months to give its recommendations on these two issues. Needless to say, that the official members of the committee were never serious or inclined to examine and discuss the issues with the representatives of the three executive Associations who are also the members of the committee

More than 20 months have passed since the committee was constituted and there is hardly any tangible result. This is because the official members of the committee have been treating the issues in a very superficial manner, thus not only denigrating the status of the committee but virtually making it a mockery. We pleaded with DIR(HR) time and again to direct the members of the committee to get down to serious and meaningful task for which it was constituted but it did not yield any result. We also apprised you about the sorry state of affairs of the committee, seeking your personal intervention, but things did not improve at all. This superficial and very casual approach of the committee members to address these twin issues has naturally generated widespread and tremendous anguish and resentment amongst the executives for very justified and obvious reasons.

JTOs recruited from 2007 onwards are the worst sufferers and victims of the apathy of the Management because of non settlement of standard IDA pay scales. Similarly on extending 30% superannuation benefits to recruits of BSNL, there is already an understanding with the Forum of BSNL Associations/Unions. This is also getting delayed for no reasons.

Abnormal and unwarranted delay in resolution of these issues has caused enormous frustration and demoralization at the grass root level which is also adversely impacting the performance of the Company. While extending our moral support to the struggle launched by AIGETOA for resolution of these issues, we solicit your kind intervention and request you to initiate action towards quick resolution of these issues."

With regards,
K. Sebastin/GS SNEA(I) CHQ

24th July 2013 Dear Comrades,
Stand of this Association on outstanding and crucial issues of JTO/JAOs recruited in BSNL whose settlement is primarily delayed because of game of one-upmanship.
Critical issues of standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs/SDEs and introduction of CPSU cadre hierarchy were identified as key and basic issues to be resolved by all the three Associations i.e AIGETOA, AIBSNL EA and SNEA(I). Accordingly, programme of organizational actions was jointly decided in Feb,12 and thereafter a committee, in which GSs of all the three Associations are included as members, to address these twin issues were constituted and the committee was asked to give its recommendations within a period of six months.
It is a fact that due to some reasons, lack of cohesiveness was visible but that never means that unity should be disrupted. In a game of one-upmanship, which is counterproductive as far as trade union movement is concerned; this fabric of unity is broken by embarking on programmes of organizational actions. We do definitely acknowledge the exclusive right of every Association / Union to independently launch programmes of action but this specific act of one-upmanship amounts to disruption of unity and will surely not help in resolution of   core issues of standard IDA pay scales and CPSU cadre hierarchy. Resolution of these crucial issues calls for united and sustained organizational actions. If someone feels like scoring over the other, resolution of these crucial issues will surely get defeated. Thus the need of the hour is a consolidated, united and sustained struggle for resolution of these issues.
SNEA(I) does not naturally support any isolated organizational action to get these key issues resolved since isolated actions will never and never help resolution of these core issues for obvious reasons, and against the background of the fact that we have already initiated a united struggle for resolution of these issues, any isolated action on the part of anyone would be counterproductive and surely defeating these issues. Let us tirelessly continue our crusade from the United platform from where we started and let no one be under any illusion that he is the sole champion and saviour of JTOs recruited in BSNL which is a just a myth and not a reality. Let us all together tirelessly work towards great objective of achieving exemplary unity and solidarity of executives that will rock the management, not disrupting unity and solidarity that is so easy to do.   

1) E2, E3 pay scales for JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs and equivalent cadres:

The standard pay scale of E2 and E3 is one of the core issues that this Association is struggling to resolve. This is an issue which affects the entire Executives in general and the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 and getting recruited in the coming days in particular. Furthermore, non resolution of standard E3 pay scale for SDE and equivalent cadres is adversely affecting the time bound promotions also. The justification for E2, E3 scale got very strong after the implementation of 78.2% IDA fitment which was overdue for the employees of BSNL. After the implementation of 78.2% IDA fitment, Assn is focussing on the resolution of this key issue and is according highest priority to its resolution.


2) Time Bound functional promotion and CPSU cadre hierarchy:

Time bound functional promotion from JTO to Selection Grade JAG was the result of the historic agitation in 2002-03 by SNEA(I) (erstwhile TEOA(I)) while finalizing terms and condition for absorption like promotional avenues, pay scales, fitment method  etc before absorption, and the agreement between SNEA(I) and BSNL Mgt. When all other Assns were ready for absorption, without spelling terms and conditions, just for Rs 2000/-, SNEA(I) singlehandedly struggled to get the pay scales and promotion policies declared before absorption. When EPP was implemented in 2007, functional promotion and time bound promotions were kept as two different channels. When functional promotions became a nightmare, due to different court cases related to seniority, Assn decided to work towards implementation of time bound functional promotion or CPSU Cadre hierarchy. The official side in the committee has given some proposals and it is time for UF to discuss and decide the strategies of how to go ahead.


3) 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees:

This is a common demand related to the Non Executives and Executives recruited by BSNL. There is no link between 30% superannuation benefit and 78.2% IDA fitment. 78.2% fitment is part of 2nd pay revision which BSNL did not implement and the employees of BSNL were struggling since 2009. If anybody think there is some link, then it will be appropriate for them to take a decision that they will not avail 78.2% IDA fitment benefit till the resolution of 30% superannuation. The issue of 30% superannuation and Child Care Leave got focussed only and only because of agitation by Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations in June, 2012 and the final agreement reached on 12.06.2012, not because of any isolated effort by anyone as is being propagated and claimed.


As per the agreement with the Forum, the committee on 30% superannuation has been constituted and the committee has given some recommendations also. Based on the recommendations, the Mgt has sought the opinion of all the Unions/Associations on its implementation. This breakthrough is also part of the agreement with the Forum only. In one of the meetings between UF and DIR(HR), AIGETOA representatives themselves suggested that BSNL start with contribution of 2% from BSNL side. However, the recommendations of the committee are under discussion within the Forum and the Forum is trying to give a common response to the recommendations of the BSNL Mgt. Now the issue appears to be on the right track of settlement. This issue can be resolved under the banner of Forum only since majority of the BSNL recruits are Non Executives, and without the involvement of Non Executives Unions, this issue cannot be resolved. We will vigorously pursue resolution of this issue from the platform of the Forum.

We are confident that the first two issues can be successfully resolved in the Joint Committee already constituted, and if not, the issue can be further discussed in the UF and appropriate organizational strategies and united programmes of action can be chalked out to resolve these highly legitimate and genuine issues.

Payment of 78.2% fitment benefit to employees of KTK and other Circles where ERP is implemented: 
GS Com K. Sebastin, Forum Convenor Com VAN Namboodiri and GS/BSNLEU Com Abhimanyu met DIR(CFA) and discussd the issue. This issue has been brought to the notice of DIR(CFA) last week itself by the Forum. DIR(CFA) informed Forum that necessary modifications in the ERP software has been developed by HCL by Saturday and now 78.2% IDA fitment can be implemented through ERP also. Initially HCL was asking for 2 weeks time but due to the strong intervention of DIR(CFA), they developed the programme in 2 days time. As soon as Circles are completing the pay fixation, salary can be drawn through ERP for the Circles where ERP is implemented.
Further Forum had discussions on supply of U/G cables to the Circles. DIR(CFA) informed the Forum that e-tender has been floated with the provision of reverse auctions also. Even then the rates are too high. So negotiation is going on with the vendors and tomorrow (23rd) the PNC is meeting to have further negotiation.

Decisions taken in the meeting of the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations CHQ held
on 17th July 2013 at New Delhi

A meeting of the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations was held on 17th July 2013 at New Delhi. After detailed discussions, the following decisions were taken:

1.  All India convention on 3rd August 2013 at New Delhi on revival of BSNL: Senior Trade Union leaders who are also Members of parliament have been invited to address the convention.

2.  Protest against FDI increase in Telecom and Defence sector: The meeting expressed its strong protest against the government’s decision to increase the FDI in telecom sector from 74% to 100% and defence sector from 26% to 49%. These are two sectors connected with national security and the present decision compromises security concerns of the nation. The unlimited flow of funds through FDI to private companies will adversely affect the growth and survival of BSNL and MTNL. The Forum decided to organise Badge wearing and Demonstration  on 25th July protesting against the decision to increase FDI in Telecom and defence sectors and demanding that the decision be dropped forthwith.

 

3.   78.2% IDA pay fixation and connected issues: Though the order for payment of 78.2% IDA pay fixation has been issued for the serving employees, the following issues remains unsettled.

a)  Orders for pre-2007 and post - 2007 pensioners are yet to be issued.

b) The PO issued by DoT has to be modified with respect to payment of arrears.

c)  Many allowances are granted at 68.8% IDA only, though the agreement between the BSNL Management and Forum did not have such a condition.

All these issues are to be taken with the management. A meeting may be arranged with the CMD, preferably this week itself.

4) 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees:

 As per the agreement reached between the Forum and Management on 12.06.2012, a committee has been formed to study the issue in its totality. The committee has submitted its report and now BSNL asked views from the Unions/Associations on the issue. Forum decided to give a common reply after further discussions on the subject.

5) Forum protested the decision to Grant allowances to the ITS officers alone and decided to demand the same for Executives and Non-executives as in the case of ITS officers.

Congratulations to all !!!!

JTO(T) to SDE(T) promotion orders issued for 2380 JTOs under 33% LDCE quota for the vacancy years 2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10. For remaining JTOs posting order will be issued on receipt of VCs by corporate office.

Comrades, the LDCE result was ready after revaluation some time back but SNEA(I) insisted Management not to declare the results unless and until promotion and posting orders are ready. With the past experience, if promotion orders are not issued immediately after declaration of the results, there is a possibility of litigations and the entire promotions may be hold up again. For issuing promotion orders, VCs from Circles was the major hurdle. The VC of the 22 newly LDCE passed JTOs also collected from Circles confidentially. Eventhough there was lot of pressure on the Management to declare the results, Mgt agreed to our suggestion and declared the results when promotion orders are almost ready. 

CHQ was in constant touch with Pers Cell and almost all the representations for posting considered by Pers Cell. However future requests also will be taken up with Management. Sr GM(Pers) assured that if any left out cases are there, it will be considered after issuing the promotion orders.

Congratulations to all the promoted Executives. CHQ and the whole membership is thankful to Circle Secretaries and other office bearers who are instrumental in sending the VC in time.

We extend our profound gratitude to CMD/BSNL, DIR(HR), Sr GM(Pers), DGM(Pers) and the entire Pers II section team members for their dedicated efforts in issuing the promotion orders. The Pers II section was working day and night since last Saturday to issue the promotion orders.

Comrades, Association is pursuing with Management to notify the LDCE for the next vacancy years 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 at the earliest. Focus on the preparations for the coming LDCEs. Simultaneously we are trying to expedite the DPC from JTO to SDE on topmost priority.

78.2% IDA fitment w.e.from 01.01.2007

One of our decisions at AIC, Nanded accomplished. Our entire focus should be towards revival of our beloved company --- simultaneously we will struggle vigorously to settle other core issues like standard E2, E3 pay scales, 30% super annuation benefits, CPSU cadre hierarchy etc etc.

 

Comrades, our struggle for 78.2% IDA fitment for 100% IDA neutralization w.e.from 01.01.2007 come to a positive note by the issuing of presidential orders by DoT on 10.06.2013. It was a long long struggle, a great struggle which each and every individual, participated in the struggle can remember forever. This landmark breakthrough was possible because of sustained and tireless struggle by the employees of BSNL from the Forum of BSNL Unions / Executive Associations. The struggle really started almost 4 years back and our continuous struggle and persuation at different level resulted in an agreement with BSNL Management on 12.06.2012. After that it was a herculean task for the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations and especially SNEA(I), to pursue the matter at different level in DOT as well as BSNL. Two times DoT returned the proposal to BSNL on flimsy ground, but we ensured that BSNL is firm on its commitment to the employees and not diluting the proposal. By ensuring that, we left little scope for DoT to deny our justified demand. However some negative elements continued their game plan to derail the process by suggesting it to refer the matter to Union Cabinet/ Finance Ministry. Our consistent persuation and interaction with senior officers in DoT on a day today basis saved the proposal and finally made DoT to take an administrative decision “not to send the proposal either to Union Cabinet or to Finance Ministry”. When DoT finally decided to refer the matter to BRPSE for their comments, we met the concerned officers in BRPSE in advance and made up their opinion in favour of the proposal. In the final leg, in the run upto indefinite strike, CMD/BSNL played a crucial role which ensured the intervention of Hon MOC&IT. DIR(F)/BSNL also played an important role till the last moment. By the settlement of 78.2% IDA issue, the basic pay will be increased by almost 6%, which is equivalent to a “double promotion”. This can be treated as a mini pay revision also considering the present financial condition of the company. For a serving BSNL Executive, the pay hike will be ranging from Rs 3000/ to Rs 4500/- and for the pensioners, the hike in pension will be more than Rs 2000/ per month. All this we could achieve through the solidarity and commitment of our members. Comrades, no struggle means, no 78.2% IDA fitment.


With the same solidarity and commitment and with the rich tradition of SNEA(I) to struggle for the common cause of the cadre, we have to struggle for the settlement of our core cadre issues like standard pay scales of E2, E3, 30% super annuation benefits and CPSU cadre hierarchy in the coming days.


Comrades, we achieved this milestone when the company is registering recurring losses for the last 4 years. Now it is our turn to reciprocate and revive the company. This settlement should highly motivate our employees and that should translate into business and additional revenue generation in the coming days.We are confident that the employees of BSNL would continue to participate in the future struggle for revival/ revitalisation of BSNL and as Executives, we have to take the lead and strengthen the Forum.

1st July 2013 LDCE Result will be declared in a couple of days.

Com Jogi retires …… 

Com. G L Jogi, the lion, yes, the lion-hearted and lion-throated leader of men needs no introduction to anyone on the trade union scene of the country. He has left inimitable and indelible marks on organized Trade Union activities. The likes of him rarely have traversed this  planet. The great strides made by him on the cadre issues of the JTOs and the Executives of DOT and BSNL , including promotion of 8000 JTOs in one stroke, the unity of the entire Executive Community, the honorable entry of the Executives in the BSNL entity, the graceful terms and conditions for absorption, the drafting of the BSNMS RRs, steps initiated towards cadre-hierarchy system in BSNL, the ITS absorption issue, the 78.2% DA etc are only too well known to you and therefore requires no elaboration.

He, and Com. W.SeshagiriRao, were the only two leaders in the whole country who resisted the corporatization of the DOT till the end. But once the BSNL came into existence it was his prime concern to ensure the profitability and the financial viability of BSNL, even when everything looked smooth and the profits were at Rs. 10,000 per year. His relentless fights to maintain a profitable organization can be well read in all his statements, writings and fights both on the Association as well as external fronts.  The 45.5 million GSM tender, the unbundling of copper, the ADC charges, the Universal Service Obligation Fund etc were all fought valiantly with all the strength he could muster. All these definitely yielded rich dividends also. His stiff resistance to corruption at the cost of inviting personal animosity with all and sundry in the top echelons of hierarchy, is something that only his strength and courage can dare and accommodate. His stiff, stern and undaunted fights against fraudulent allocation of 2G spectrum to real estate companies like Unitech, Swan etc, and permitting them to piggyback on BSNL thrusting on it an illegal roaming agreement, arbitrary and fraudulent allocation of BWA spectrum, breach of policy by private operators in cartelizing the 3G tender and roaming with each other, allocation of sub standard 2.6 GHz BWA Spectrum to BSNL, discrimination to BSNL in procurement of Chinese equipment, compulsion on BSNL to pay license fees and spectrum charges based  on income inclusive of non-telecom activities, fight against corruption particularly the fraudulent Wi-Max deal, fight against unethical provisions of NTP 2012,  are but a few that the limitations of this page can contain.  And for sure he was greatly successful in reaching the desired results, utilizing not only the Association platform but also other agencies like other Unions, media and the Court. Most of the issues thus highlighted received national attention with the media engrossed in them for several, not weeks, but months.  Naturally true to his ilk, he hid himself from the limelight. He sought not fame but justice and this he was able to achieve. 

His interaction with Sri Sam Pitroda on Telecom and BSNL, particularly in the live interview in the AIC at Nanded  is a testimony  of his gigantic stature at the National level. We certainly are proud that we walked this earth holding hands with such great personalities. Yes, we were really fortunate.

His concern for the employees was not limited to the BSNL. His stern stand during the agitation in the oil sector, organizing the officers of all Central Government Organisations and fighting till the punitive measures were reversed, can stem only from rare gems like him.

We are extremely fortunate to have him with us for many more years to lead us and inspire us. Today when he is stepping out of the portals of the BSNL and retiring from his official duties, all our Comrades thank him profusely for his official services in the BSNL.

29th June 2013
Our CHQ President, Veteran Leader Com.G.L.JOGI retired today.On behalf of our SNEA(I),Bihar Circle We congratulate him and to have a peaceful retired life.

Appeal from CS/SNEA(I), Uttarakhand to all BSNL Employees.

“Every body in the country is continuously viewing the news of recent Natural calamity in Uttarakhand in 16th June, and every body is shocked.  Defence forces and state Govt. teams have evacuated about 40000 people but still there are more than that those are trapped in odd situations. There is no estimation about the number of casualties which may rise to  Several thousands.  The pilgrims from all over the world are trapped there without food, water and shelter. Center & State Govts are doing their best to provide relieve to the victims  of  the disaster,  which  is of massive nature  and spread at various locations, a lot work has still to be done .  Although our comrades posted at these SSAs are working day & night to restore the services, we being sensitive citizens, must extend our hand to the victims at this juncture.  SNEA(I) Uttarakhand, therefore, proposes to that all the BSNL  Employees/Executives of BSNL contribute one day salary towards the PM’s relief fund”.

That also when the company is registering recurring losses for the last 4 years and the accumulated losses crossed Rs 24,000 Crores.  Now it is our turn to reciprocate as the Forum of BSNL Unions /Associations committed to the BSNL Management at the time of agreement on 12.06.2012 on behalf of the entire BSNL employees. This settlement highly motivated our employees definitely and that should translate into business and additional revenue generation in the coming days.

Thereafter, the leaders solicited the intervention of Sec/DoT for an early resolution of 78.2% IDA merger for 100% IDA neutralization as on 01.01.2007. Secy/DoT was very much concerned about the indefinite strike w.e.f 12.06.2013 as GoM are meeting on 11.6.2013 to discuss the revival of BSNL and MTNL. We explained that the Govt orders on 78.2% IDA merger for 100% IDA neutralization was issued 4 years back and an agreement was signed on 12.06.2012 between Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations with BSNL Management. The BSNL Board proposal is pending with DoT for the last 9 months.  There was no need to refer it to BRPSE for comments as BRPSE had already clarified to us that since BSNL is not a sick PSU, consultation with BRPSE not at all required. In order to delay the order, some officers in DoT are intentionally doing all these things. We also requested to use his good office to get the comments from BRPSE at the earliest for early settlement of the issue in order to avoid unrest in BSNL. Secy/DoT categorically told that the agreement signed with the BSNL Management will be implemented. He assured that he will try to resolve the issue at the earliest and may meet the leaders again in a couple of days. GS and President represented SNEA(I) in this meeting.
Comrades, we have to continue the preparations for successful implementation of indefinite strike call w.e.f. 12.06.2013 till the issue is resolved favorably.
6th June 2013 On a reference from BSNL to DoP&T on utilization of unfilled vacancies from LDCE or promotee quota streams and method of fixation of seniority as per SDE RR, DoP&T clarified as under:

a) Clarification on utilization of unfilled vacancies from LDCE or promotee quota streams:

“The unfilled vacancies including backlog vacancies of STs/SCs from LDCE or promotee quota streams are to be carried forward to the succeeding year in respective quota and would not be added to the current year vacancies. The current year vacancies are to be distributed in the ratio prescribed in the RR’s as illustrated in DOPT OM Dated 19.01.2007”.


b)Clarification on method of fixation of seniority as per SDE RR.

“--------- the relative seniority of the officers promoted under promotion quota and LDCE shall be determined according to the rotation of the vacancies between available incumbents of both the modes which is based on the quota of vacancies reserved for the recruitment through each of the modes, namely in the ratio of 3:1. Consolidated instructions in the matter has been notified by the DOPT in OM No- 20011/12/2008- Estt. (D) dated 11/11/2010 available on the website of the department”.


It is understood that, BSNL carried forwarded 2202 unfilled vacancies in the LDCE quota for the vacancy year 2005-06 to the fresh vacancies of 2006-07 and again distributed in the ratio 2:1 as per DoP&T OM dated 19.01.2007. By this, 1468 vacancies of LDCE quota were transferred to seniority quota of 2006-07. However according to our data, none of these vacancies has been utilized for promotion under seniority quota as sufficient no of vacancies were available in the seniority quota itself for the vacancy years 2005-06, 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09. Still unfilled vacancies are available in the seniority quota upto the vacancy year 2008-09 for which DPC was held in 2011.
By this clarification of DoP&T, the issue has been resolved and the 1468 vacancies, most of them are SC/ST quota vacancies, will be restored back to LDCE quota. When the dispute has come, Assn requested Management to refer the matter to DoP&T for their clarification and pursued the same in DOT also which resulted the resolution of the issue. We welcome the outcome which resolved one controversy. Further promotions in both the quotas will be done as per the clarifications.
