27th July 2010 Great and sustained efforts of SNEA(I) in seeking timely intervention of CVC to expose a big scandal of procurement of obsolete Cordect technology by TN Circle of BSNL at huge cost of 35 crores from M/s Midas Communications is fully vindicated – Contract for procurement of redundant Cordect technology by TN Circle from MS Midas Communications is terminated by validation committee since it failed to meet technical requirements. Bank guarantee of Midas communications worth Rs 2 crores ceased by BSNL. The appeal of Midas Communications against termination of contract by BSNL in Hon’ble Madurai Bench of High Court of Chennai will be heard on 02.08.2010. Interestingly, Dr Ashok Jhunjunwala was on board of directors of both BSNL and Midas Communications when BSNL decided to procure obsolete technology, raising serious issues about the role of Dr Jhunjunwala in forcing BSNL to procure redundant technology from Midas Communications.
This Association relentlessly and courageously pursued the matter with CVC to expose the big fraud that procurement of Cordect technology was. We are extremely thankful to CVC for their timely, serious and effective intervention in directing DOT to get to the root of the issue that forced DOT to initiate serious investigation into the whole issue.
However, this Association stands committed to severely take to task concerned highly corrupt officers of BSNL Co who were having a close and unholy nexus with Midas Communications and were consistently coercing TN Circle to place the orders for purchase of obsolete equipment from Midas communications. These corrupt senior officers who stand fully exposed need to be sent to gallows for playing with resources of BSNL. We shall not spare them, even though they have started escaping here and there from the sensitive positions they held in BSNL Co which they grossly abused to develop unholy nexus and commit virtual frauds.
This Association has however greatest satisfaction of saving precious Rs 35 crores of BSNL which would have been surely squandered away but for timely and relentless intervention of this Association.

27th July 2010 BSNL employees charge DoT of favouring pvt operators:
An employee association of BSNL, which is reeling under severe financial pressure due to falling profits and market share, has charged the Department of Telecom for pursuing policies favouring private operators especially with regard to licence fee and spectrum charges.
"This highly prejudiced and discriminatory treatment met out to BSNL by DoT even though inexplicable and incomprehensible could be largely attributed to overstaying of officers in the sensitive licencing wing of DoT in complete disregard of repeated instructions of DoP to shift officers dealing with sensitive issues beyond reasonable time span because of their proximity with vested interests," a representative of Sanchar Nigam Executives' Association said.

19th July 2010 Unholy nexus between top BSNL executives, telecom firms alleged: The Sanchar Nigam Executives Association (India) of the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has written to Cabinet Secretary K.M. Chandrasekhar, urging him to strictly deal with the issue of some top BSNL executives joining private telecom companies.
In the past few years, several top executives of BSNL and the Mahanagar Telecom Nigam Limited (which operates in Delhi and Mumbai) — besides those of the Department of Telecommunications — have joined hands with leading telecom operators and equipment manufacturers, who in turn are utilising their experience to counter the State-owned telecom firms, said association general secretary G.L.

17th July 2010 Union fears nexus between BSNL officers, telcos; seeks probe Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd's employees' union has sought a probe into the possibility of a nexus between some officers with private telecom operators to stall the PSU's roll-out plans. This comes after the Government last month hauled up two former BSNL officers for taking up a job with a private telecom company post-retirement without taking approvals. “The modus operandi of such an unholy and unscrupulous nexus is carefully calibrated and the mechanism of its detection is so feeble that hardly anyone is brought to book. But, the fact of the matter remains that a large numbers of officers of top management of BSNL, particularly at the board/CGM level, develop a very close nexus with service providers, while in active job, and, immediately, after their retirement, joins them as consultants,” said Mr G.L. Jogi, General Secretary, SNEA.

The urge and resolution of BSNL workers of TN/Chennai to get involved in a protracted struggle to defeat diabolical policies of the government to privatize BSNL and fully safeguard it was clearly manifest in the mood that was upbeat and vibrant from the beginning of the convention to the end. Chennai convention undoubtedly heralded the beginning of historical movement of workers of BSNL to take on and comprehensively defeat the vested interests within and outside the government, bureaucracy and a thoroughly inefficient and unprofessional BSNL management bent upon destabilizing and jeopardizing the growth of BSNL.
JAC of all other Circles should get fully motivated at remarkably splendid efforts of the Organizers of Chennai convention and emulate them in all respects to make conventions in their respective Circles an astounding success like Chennai. We wholeheartedly congratulate JAC of TN/Chennai for organizing such a historical convention that is bound to pave the way for holding of similar conventions at other places throughout the Country. Chennai convention, in addition to Central JAC members, was addressed by Com Suburaman, GS/TEPU, Com Madhivanan, NFTE, Com Vallinayagam, GS/FNTO and a number of Central trade union leaders of TN State. The valedictory address was given by Respected Com Kuppuswamy, President/TEPU and ex-MP.

2nd July 2010 General Secretary and SNEA(I) CHQ Team express their view on Mega Promotion Order issued by BSNL CO from SDE(T) to Adhoc STS:
We have really no words to express deepest sense of gratitude to Dir(HRD), GM(P),CVO, DGM(P) ,AGM(DPC) and AGM(Pers.-I) and the entire team of officials connected with the issuing of promotion for their extraordinary commitment and hard work in issuing the promotion order of 1679 SDEs despite severe and unprecedented constrains in terms of diverse and conflicting numerous judgments from various Tribunals/ High courts on the issue of promotion from TES Gr.B to STS. These officers burnt midnight oil and worked round the clock to issue the said orders. We have seen this kind of situation for the first time when the whole team of personnel section functioned in total cohesion to ensure that promotion orders are issued. It was a Herculean task given the fact that various groups tried their level best and even continued today to stall the adhoc promotion to STS on flimsy grounds. GM(P) applied himself in exemplary manner to bring out the promotion order in the midst of contradictory court judgments. Finally we congratulate our comrades for their promotion to STS and appeal to others to repose their trust and confidence in the just mechanism of our organization. Association assures all of them that future promotions to adhoc JAG, regular STS, adhoc STS(remaining) & TES Gr. B would be done at the earliest, provided no further efforts are made to stall these processes through legal means.
1st July 2010

Congratulations !!! Adhoc STS promotion orders for 1679 SDEs issued .
OC -- 1308 (upto seniority no. 15300), SC -- 286 (upto seniority no. 16221.1) and ST -- 85 (upto seniority no. 24491). 149 SDEs out of 1679 are posted outside the Circle mostly due to shortage of vacancies.All SDEs of Bihar Circle accommodated in Bihar Circle on promotion.
 We are extremely thankful to DIR(HR), GM(Pers), CVO, DGM(Pers), AGM(DPC) and the entire executives and staff in DPC, CVO office and Pers-I Section for issuing the promotion order by maintaining the SC/ST quota, based on roaster position. 

1st July 2010 Meeting with Director (HR) regarding issuing of promotion orders to adhoc STS: GS along with both the AGSs had a discussion with Director (HR) and GM (Personnel) regarding issuing of promotion orders from TES Gr B to Adhoc STS as early as possible.
During the course of discussion, it was revealed that promotion order for entire 2400 SDEs cannot be issued because of availability of inadequate number of SDEs belonging to the SC category. The overall size of the promotion order had thus to be scaled down to about 1700 odd so as to fully comply with the provisions of SC/ST roster. While fully appreciating and acknowledging the stand of the Management to fully adhere to the provisions of SC/ST roster to protect the legitimate interests of SC/ST Comrades, we strongly pleaded to initiate immediate action to call for the CRs of SDEs belonging to SC/ST category to issue the promotion orders of the remaining about 700 TES Gr B. We were categorically assured by Director (HRD) that under all circumstances the promotion of remaining 700 SDEs would be issued by the end of July,10. From our side, we reiterated our stand that the roster provisions should be fully complied with while issuing the promotion orders for the remaining 700 SDEs also. The size of the promotion order had to be thus reduced from 2400 to 1700 odd because of non availability of CRs of SDEs belonging to the SC category to ensure that proportion of OC, SC and ST in the promotion order is fully in accordance to the prevailing rules of the government and SC/ST Comrades are not deprived of their legitimate share while issuing the promotion orders. We once again made a fervent appeal to Director (HRD) to fully ensure that discrimination of any kind is not met out to SC/ST Comrades and their legitimate interests are fully protected. It is because of our continuous monitoring and insistence to maintain the quota of SC/ST Comrades that the promotion orders are issued fully in compliance of the roster provisions.
However, all efforts to issue the promotion orders of remaining 700 SDEs by including appropriate number of eligible SC/ST Comrades to meet the roster requirements are being made and we fully assure the remaining 700 SDEs, including SC/ST comrades, that the promotion orders for them would be issued by the end of July, 2010.
CSs have to ensure that CRs being called for to get adequate number of eligible SC/ST Comrades are sent to BSNL CO at the earliest. A letter from BSNL CO in this regard is being sent to the field units very shortly.
1st July 2010 Status of Court Case against SDE(T) to DE(Adhoc) DPC in Hon'ble CAT Bangalore: The case filed by SC-ST Welfare Association in Hon'ble CAT Bangalore against SDE(T) to DE(Adhoc) DPC was heard today but the advocate of the applicants side was not present.

(b)Poor growth of BSNL Telecom Services- CMD expressed his serious concern against the poor growth of BSNL GSM Services in comparison to the private operators. JAC pleaded that proper monitoring in Circles /SSAs is required and the problems /deficiencies if any should immediately be looked into. JAC suggested that some Circles/SSAs of poor growth should be identified and some groups/teams represented by Management side and Staff side should visit the Circles and should find out the reasons of poor growth and immediate corrective measures should be taken. CMD agreed to the proposal and early decision in this regard.
(c) Payment of 3G and BWA spectrum charges- JAC expressed its serious resentment against the payment of 3G and BWA spectrum charges without discussing with JAC. CMD explained that there was a tremendous pressure from Govt. to release the payments of 3G and BWA spectrum charges . He mentioned that matter has been taken up with DoT Member (F) regarding reimbursement of the spectrum fee being the BSNL state owned company and providing Telecom Services in the rural part of the Country on reduced rental.
