a) Pay anomaly of JTO 2007 & 2008 batches and new JAO batch: GS explained the background of the case and the assurances given by CMD as well as earlier ED(Fin). She agreed to our view that the new rects should not be demoralised at the beginning of their career as they will be the future of the company. She assured positive action on this crucial issue.

UNETHICAL TRADE PRACTICE MADE BY M/s AIRTEL IN MP CIRCLE ON MOBILE NUMBER PORTABILITY:
From the very beginning of launching MNP, Private Telecom Operators are opting for unfair trade practices to increase their customer base. While committing the unfair practice, even they did not consider the aspect of national security.
        Recently, same action done by M/s Airtel in Madya Pradesh. For attracting new customers after MNP, a call from Airtel has arrived to thousands of BSNL customers of MP by creating identical mobile number requesting him to switch over to Airtel after MNP.
      As soon as the complaint was received that subscribers are getting calls from the number showing their own CLI, MP SNEA(I) comrades in Consumer Mobility section took the immediate action and found that these calls were from Airtel network. After getting complete details like CDR etc, a complaint was filed with DOT TERM Cell MP.
     Similarly, subscribers of M/s Idea were unable to send SMS to 1900 for porting-out to BSNL as such SMSs were blocked by Idea. For this also, another complaint was filed with DOT TERM Cell MP.
    Investigation on this issue is being carried out by the TERM Cell Bhopal. Meanwhile, this matter has been sent to Corporate Office and other Security Agencies for further necessary action.CMTS CO section has written a very strong letter to GM (Regulation) Corporate Office on the subject with copy to all Security Agencies and TERM cell. For the letter, click here
   This news was also published in leading newspapers of Bhopal. For the news, click here FOR NEWS
CS SNEA MP has written a letter on this issue to our GS. All our activists should also become vigilant on such issues in our circle and report such cases immediately to CS SNEA.
   From this incident it is clear that for the safe-guarding of national security, sound health of BSNL is very much required.
             So, FOR MAINTAINING A SAFE AND SECURE NATION, PLEASE MAKE BSNL HEALTHY.

SNEA(I) takes up the issue of Pension Contribution with Sec/DOT:  BSNL is to pay pension contribution based on the existing basic pay, not on the maximum as envisaged in the superseded order of DOP&T dated 19.11.2009 in respect of the employees absorbed in BSNL -- BSNL is arbitrarily compelled to pay pension contribution on the maximum of the pay scale based on a non-existent superseded order of DOP&T -- in fact almost double the amount  actually due to be paid by BSNL.

GS writes to Hon MOC & IT regarding loss making Rural Services, BSNLs social obligation and demands Govt support as assured in NTP 99. Government undermining singular efforts of BSNL in meeting its social obligations to build massive Country wide basic telecom infrastructure at incredibly huge costs in rural areas –continuing violation of one policy commitment after another to compensate it for incurring huge recurring losses to sustain rural operations in a fiercely competitive but non - existent level playing telecom market --  revenue from the rural land line services is about 1,048 Crores from 1.5 crore lines which works out an average revenue of just Rs 58 per line per month-- revenue from all other recoveries, including PCO, is about 1,696 Crores, with an average of Rs 94 per line per month -- On the contrary, the OPEX for the same period on rural lines was Rs 12,681 Crores, with an average expenditure of Rs 702 per line per month. This shows the huge gap between the cost on rural services and the revenue coming from them just to meet social commitments of the government. Private operators making loud noises about creation of level playing field have neither so far seen nor will ever see the light of these areas. Keeping in view the policy commitments of NTP 99 and other commitments of the government, the huge burden on BSNL because of its continued sole participation to provide land line services in highly loss making rural areas and also undertaking other activities  towards fulfillment of the social obligations of the Govt. has to be assessed afresh, in a broader and holistic perspective and compensated suitably.

23rd Jan 2011 2G SCAM- Arithmetic or How to Help the Corporate Houses? KAPIL Sibal has now thought fit not only to pick up all the arguments given by A Raja for giving 2G license and spectrum at throw-away prices to favoured corporate houses, but has also added a few of his own. Thus, if Unitech and Swan made thousands of crores by selling a part of their equity within months of securing the 2G licenses, we should not complain as this somehow has also helped the consumer. Further, according to the minister, the CAG is entirely devoid of arithmetic – it cannot distinguish between Rs 1.76 lakh crore and the number zero; if it only knew its numbers – according to Kapil Sibal -- they would have known that the exchequer has really suffered no loss. In other words, there was no scam, no undervaluation of the spectrum and no loss to the exchequer, only some minor procedural lapses.

Message from Circle Secretary-
Dear Friends Happy New Year-2011 to you all, your families, your friends, your aspirations andabove all to our beloved BSNL.We have just observed end of turbulent 2010 in Telecom Industry. Let all of us learn a lesson that unless and until we rise above our levels ; work together irrespective of assigned duties for bringing back the far away appearing glorious status that we had long long ago.
Friends I am not pessimistic, nor do I say  this to express scorn and contempt. There are "n" number of reasons for the present state , much above our level. But let nobody decide our level, that's what I mean to say " Rise above your level"- Do whatever you can to bring back the past glory of BSNL. We have capability, resources as well as opportunities. But here we should not forget  that whatever the opportunities we have, are open to other operators too. We have to make most of every opportunity.
So dear friends work hard- Luck favors the brave or rather brave people change the direction of prosperity towards them. On the first day of 2011 let all of us swear to work hard with all our vigor, dedication and time to remove the dust that has covered the shining glory of our beloved BSNL.

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced”

1.1.11 EDITORIAL: TESA FLASH

Resolution for New Year – Define a new BSNL that goes to war against corruption and a thoroughly inefficient and indecisive management:

The year 2011 should see the beginning of new BSNL in which not only the policy makers in DOT, the management of BSNL and the trade unions at large should be playing a new and pragmatic role but in which the tolerance to corruption, delays in decision making by inertia ridden BSNL management and inefficiency is zero. BSNL is today corrupt not only at individual but dangerously at the Organizational level too, particularly at the policy deciding level. The corruption has eaten very deep into the vitals of the Company.

Whereas there is not even an iota of doubt about corruption fast destroying the wherewithal’s and fabric of BSNL, what is terribly disturbing and of great concern is BSNL top managements virtual complete complicity in it by not even trying to acknowledge the very presence of this fast spreading virus, let alone combating it.

BSNL management should open up their eyes to see how CEO of Coal India, Partha Bhatacharya, through his exemplary integrity, untiring efforts, extraordinary team effort and total transparent functioning fought the political mafia that had pushed Coal India to the brink of disaster to take it to the pristine glory. Company that was engulfed by widespread corruption is today corruption free. Corruption is visible at individual level and has disappeared at Organizational level. Spate of hard and quick decisions by dashing Bhattacharya that transformed Coal India includes introducing e-auctions to eliminate middlemen, understanding the nitty gritties of business, perfecting the fine art of striking a balance between employee’s interest and that of Company, setting medium term targets to achieve the best long term result, smoothly eradicating tender corruption by introducing concept of Pre-NIT etc, etc.

Compare this to the unthinkably lousiest management that we have and of which we are really ashamed. Let alone finalization of tenders for GSM procurement, which continue to be a nightmare, even tenders for procurement of crucial MLLN and centralised Trans NMS equipment are languishing for years and no one is just bothered. Virtual failure of potential CDR and Wimax projects, complete failure to replace existing switches by NGN, continuing glitches in implementation of critical ERP project etc.etc., is nothing but an indelible stigma on core professional competence and integrity of decision making process of executive directors and internal directors of bsnl/board. That is the awful quality of management we have.

Thus we will have to become the change we want to see in every BSNL person. We will socially boycott those who come to wealth through corrupt means. It will dawn upon us that a national institution of great pride of three lakh people cannot be corrupt because a handful of top management and a good number amongst and below us are corrupt. We will realize too that corruption hacks away at the roots of the Company.

Hence, we will regard corruption as an unpatriotic act, and come to the realization that no amount of action on the part of the government and management, even if it musters the intent for such action, which, of course, is remote, can make much headway, unless, we all, together, make a resolution for a 2011 that will define a new BSNL that will go to war against Corruption.
