29th June 2010 TESA FLASH (Editorial – June, 10)
BSNL rapidly heading towards bankruptcy – reserves as on March, 11 – Minus 12559 crores – this is the definition of bankruptcy of a commercial organization in terms of simple financial language.
Are we aware of this simple statistics and what it really means?
In simple terms it means the Company will have no finances and means to pay for the monthly wages in the days to come.
What is the monthly annual wage bill inclusive of pensionary provisions, leave salary etc for employees of BSNL – 12000 crores approximately.
Who are going to be hit – all absorbed employees of BSNL, except ITS, and their innocent families will shortly start bleeding because of the financial crisis that has engulfed BSNL from all sides.
Does BSNL have any other resources except its fixed assets of land and buildings etc. to meet the huge expenditure on annual wages, let alone future expansion plans – No.
Who is responsible for present deadly crisis - government’s total lack of will and interest to groom BSNL as a viable commercial Company as its 100% equity holder, frequent and uncalled for political and bureaucratic interference in day to day business policies of the Company, a thoroughly inefficient, unprofessional management, devoid of vision and leadership qualities, prone to interference, and fundamentally not owing allegiance to the Company, and trade unions/associations cutting across all considerations and affiliations.
Can the situation be retrieved and who can do that – At this belated stage, when everything is virtually lost, only a brave, spirited and determined fight and movement of the workers can reverse the situation.
Trade unions/associations need to understand that it is meaningless to indulge in cat races to decide who is going to be number one, two etc. It has no relevance in the present context where workers and their families will start experiencing worst and unbelievable financial situations very soon. Trade unions/associations will be solely responsible for massacring their workers if they don’t read the writing on the wall.
29th June 2010 Objectives of and critical issues before JACs at Central/Circle/SSA levels and the very tough and unparalleled challenges that they face and have to overcome in the days to come:
Objective of Joint Action Committees at Central/Circle/SSA levels – Complete responsibility of building a formidable and sustained Country wide movement to focus the crucial and basic issues that require serious and immediate policy intervention of the government to comprehensively address issues of viability on all the fronts. Also to develop extraordinary sense of oneness and total cohesion at base level among all the affiliates of JAC.
Immediately constitute JACs at Circle/SSA levels and make them as highly proactive and vibrant instruments of building massive media and public support for upcoming struggles.
Huge challenges before JACs at Circle/SSA levels: to get proactively and fully involved in arresting rampant and ever increasing corruption in the field units, radically improve very poor quality of services, introduce modern and business like customer interface, isolate work shirkers, force management at Circle/SSA levels to enforce policy decisions that help in improving quality of services, customer interface and growth.
What are the issues – Pragmatic policy initiatives of the government relating to revival of BSNL, a highly professional BSNL management belonging to the Company having sweeping and absolute powers to take business and commercial policy decisions without any interference from the bureaucracy in DOT and investigating agencies like CVC, CBI etc., focus on right investment policies and emerging areas of telecom business.
29th June 2010 VC reached CVO, BSNL CO Office from all the Circles for Adhoc promotion from SDE(T) to STS today.

28th June 2010 Status of LDCE for TES Group-B: We are getting lot of enquiries from members regarding status of LDCE for TES Group-B scheduled to be held on 4th July 2010, As on now BSNL is trying hard to defend the Recruitment Rules, already moved to Delhi High Court on 24th June 2010 against the CAT principal bench judgment of allowing about 120 DR JTOs recruited against vacancy year 2005 and thereafter. All of them had already got caveat order from High court against grant of any stay on Principal bench in this case High court must have to hear all the applicants before taking any decision. Association is in touch with CHQ & will put the status report on exam as and when we receive any further information on this subject, till then all the members are advised to continue their studies and preparations for LDCE as per scheduled programme.
25th June 2010 Central JAC met Hon’ble MOC&IT Sh A. Raja at Coimbatore on 25th June,10: Representatives of Central JAC, including GS, met Hon’ble MOC&IT to seek his immediate kind intervention regarding refund of 3G and BWA Spectrum Charges paid by BSNL on the grounds that BSNL, being an incumbent operator fulfilling the socio-economic obligations of the government with regard to ensuring uninterrupted growth of telecom sector in remotest parts of the Country, is fully qualified to pay spectrum charges for both 3G and BWA at reserve prices, and in accordance to the provisions of NTP 1999 according to which BSNL paid a minimum charge of Rs 100 crores for 2G spectrum. The reserves of BSNL are virtually exhausted by arbitrary payment of about 18,500 crores as spectrum Charges for 3G and BWA and with this payment BSNL is all set to be bankrupt. We pleaded with him to intervene as quickly as possible to save the families of more than three lakh workers from being thrown on to the streets.
Besides, we pleaded with Hon’ble MOC &IT that BSNL has been subject to worst kind of discrimination by not allowing it to bid for commercial Circles instead of slapping pan India license fees for 3G and BWA spectrum. Hon’ble MOC & IT fully assured that he will very strongly plead these justified issues of refund of spectrum charges by BSNL with Hon’ble PM and Finance Minister who is also the Chairman of the eGOM for allocation of 3G and BWA spectrum.
As regards continuing delay to address the important issues of ITS absorption, revision of pension, procurement of GSM equipment for immediate expansion and payment of 9.4 % IDA in tune with orders of DPE, pointed out by JAC, Hon’ble MOC & IT also assured that on his return to Delhi he will hold further discussions with JAC regarding non settlement of these issues by DOT on which Country wide strike was held on 20th April,10. JAC clearly reiterated that bureaucracy in DOT, particularly Secy-DOT, was taking absolutely no interest in addressing and resolving the issues on which he gave very specific and concrete commitments has been given on the basis of which strike of 20th April, 10 was deferred by JAC.
25th June 2010 Pilgrims on Amarnath yatra can stay connected, thanks to BSNL(Published in-The Hindu 25th June2010): Lakhs of devotees who visit Jammu and Kashmir between July and August to undertake a trek to the Amarnath cave shrine have a pleasant surprise this year.
Thanks to monumental efforts by State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd., the devotees can now remain connected during the long trek between the base camp and the cave.
While all private operators have so far shunned the idea of installing these towers on the yatra route, the BSNL took it as a challenge and as part of its social obligation and commitment to provide seamless connectivity to mobile users undertaking the Amarnath yatra, Union Minister of State for Communications and Information Technology Sachin Pilot said.

24th June 2010 Updates on 3G and BWA spectrum charges:
JAC trying to meet Hon Prime Minister and Finance Minister in this regard.
JAC leaders are at Coimbatore to meet the Hon MOC Sh A. Raja on 24.06.2010.
JAC leaders met Hon MOS & IT Sh Sachin Pilot on 22.06.2010.
JAC leaders had a meeting with BSNL Management Committee on 21.06.2010.
JAC leaders met Secretary DoT on 18.06.2010.
24th June 2010 Payment of BWA Spectrum charges of Rs. 8343 Crores from BSNL to DOT HQ - BSNL Management paid BWA spectrum charges of Rs. 8313 Crores plus Rs. 30 Crores as penal interest for two days i.e. 23rd & 24th June 2010 to DOT HQ despite the assurance given by the CMD BSNL in the presence of BSNL Management Committee that the payment will be made after discussion with the JAC. Hence BSNL has paid Rs.18500 Crores spectrum charges of 3G and BWA which has minus the BSNL reserve from Rs. 28000 Crores to Rs. 8500 Crores. The same will be finished in the payment of wage revision (about Rs. 4000 Crores) & for creating fund for leave encashment (about Rs. 5000 Crores). It is a matter of great concern to all BSNL personnel. JAC will consider immediate strong protest actions against arbitrary payment.

Government is pressing BSNL Management for immediate payment of Rs. 8313 Crores BWA Spectrum charges. BSNL has already paid Rs. 10,178 Crores to DoT. Payment of BWA Spectrum Charges of Rs. 8313 Crores from BSNL to DoT will finish the BSNL reserves.

19th June 2010 Do or die situation has descended.
DOT has asked BSNL to pay Rs 8313.78 crores as spectrum charges for BWA latest by 22nd June, 2010, in addition to Rs 10,186 crores that it has already paid for 3G spectrum.
Does BSNL really need BWA spectrum to provide internet/ broadband services when it has nearly 70% unutilized copper?
Is it worth for a Company reeling under severe financial crisis to invest Rs 8313 crores on a business whose returns as of now are negative?

Private operators having bid for BWA spectrum for select potential circles are not going to use it for providing Wimax services but are to wait for a year or so for new upcoming technology Long term evolution (LTE) to provide 4 G services on BWA spectrum once LTE is marketed in India. Besides, private operators have already formed a strong cartel to ensure that they do not compete with each other in potential circles to protect their business interests and also save on their investments on payment of spectrum charges. They have also closely followed this strategy while auctioning of 3G spectrum. BSNL, on the other hand, has paid Rs 10,186 crores, for Pan India, more than 60% of what other leading operators like Airtel, Vodafone, Reliance etc., have paid without giving it any opportunity to select Circles if its business choice. In the same manner, Govt.., without offering BSNL any choice to decide its select Circles, has asked it to arbitrarily pay Rs 8313 crores on BWA spectrum, more than 70% of what other leading operators like Airtel, Vodafone, Reliance etc have paid for select Circles.
What is the way out?
BSNL should straightaway surrender BWA spectrum even though it has invested little over 1200 crores to procure Wimax equipment which has neither so far nor is in future going to yield any revenues. It is in the best business interests of BSNL to lose 1200 crores rather than squander away Rs 8400 crores by paying on BWA spectrum and completely exhaust the reserves of BSNL.
Will BSNL management do it?
No, no, no, not at all. It needs a thoroughly professional and tough management full of conviction, honesty and courage to confront administrative ministry and comprehensively defeat its ulterior motives to land BSNL in bankruptcy. We are not going to land in bankruptcy - we are almost bankrupt with our reserves depleting very fast. In a day or two, CMD/BSNL will hand over on a platter another Rs 8313 crores to DOT as BWA spectrum charges, reducing our reserves from 36,000 crores to just about 10, 000 crores. It needs likes of late Sh.Subhir Raha, Chairman ONGC, who defeated the efforts of bureaucrats and politicians to make ONGC bankrupt. Our management is just nowhere even remotely near him.
Who has to save BSNL from total bankruptcy?
Each and every worker of BSNL totally regardless of which Union/Association he or she belongs to has to rise up in arms and hit back with greatest force to defeat well planned conspiracy to sell BSNL to vested interests. We all irrespective of where we stand have a fundamental responsibility to safeguard our families and protect our beloved bread earner from total disaster. We have nothing to lose. We have virtually lost everything.
So, why should we be scared of hitting out at the government with tremendous and unparalleled courage and unwavering conviction?
Why should we create a painful and pathetic situation where we tell our Children that we were cowards not to struggle and be able to protect our jobs, Company and their future?
Whether we succeed or not is an entirely different matter - let us not helplessly watch losing our bread and butter but give a lasting fight till our last breath that posterity remembers as truly historical. This is our humble appeal to every one whose livelihood and the future of family is dependent exclusively on health of BSNL. All our internal scores we can settle once we primarily emerge successful in protecting our beloved Company from getting sunk to the bottom in the deep waters. Let us first create a situation where we can subsequently settle our internal tussles.
18th June 2010 Details of Joint Action Committee Meeting held on 17.06.2010: JAC meeting was held on 17.06.2010 to discuss the developments after implementation of Demonstration on 14.06.2010 and Massive Dharna on 16.06.2010. JAC expressed its serious concern against Govt’s letter to BSNL Management for the payment of BWA Spectrum Charges of Rs. 8313.86 crores by 22nd June 2010 positively. JAC also expressed its serious resentment against the payment of 3G Spectrum fees of Rs. 10,178 crores and demanded its refund and not to make the payment of BWA Spectrum Charges or payment for few Circles only where BSNL actually need BWA Spectrum. JAC also expressed its serious concern against wiping out of BSNL’s reserve funds by paying Rs. 10,178 crores for 3G Spectrum charges, Rs. 8313.86 crores for BWA Spectrum Charges to be paid by 22nd June 2010 (if paid), Rs. 4000 crores estimated payment for Non-Executive wage revision arrears, about Rs. 4500 crores for separate reserve fund to be created for leave encashment and about Rs. 3000 crores to meet out the deficit of the current FY. Hence the BSNL’s present reserve of about Rs. 28000 crores will be finished by the end of Dec 2010. In view of the above facts, in January 2011, BSNL will not have any reserve fund and all the expenditure (including salary) will depend upon cash inflow (collection through Circles). In case of insufficient funds it is presumed that all the expenditures will be met out through the aid of Govt, if any, or managed through loan from outside. JAC on the above issues will immediately send detailed protest letter to the Govt. and will meet to CMD BSNL, Secy (T), Hon’ble MoC&IT and Hon’ble Prime Minister of India demanding waiving off BWA Spectrum Charges and refund of 3G Spectrum Charges already paid in view of BSNL being state owned company and its continuous decline in profit or BSNL should be given freedom to provide its services in the areas of its choice as in case of private operators.
17th June 2010 “ Bharat Strike Nigam Limited ”?

This is the sarcastic remark that one of the leading newspapers has made about BSNL recently. It is implied in the remark that the employees of BSNL use to frequently go on strike, without any valid reason. The remark is not only an irresponsible one, but it tends to twist the fact also. On the contrary, it can be proudly said that BSNL is surviving even today, only because of the timely interventions made by the unions and associations here. <<< CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS >>>

16th June 2010 THE HINDU reports-BSNL forced to pay more spectrum charges - “It is a serious issue… while we are being forced to pay despite financial difficulties, private operators are making merry. We are writing to the Telecom Secretary to exempt us also from the hike order or we, as principal stakeholders in the company, will move court seeking relief and refund of the amount so far. If the department cannot take legal action, we certainly can do so,” said Sanchar Nigam Executives Association (India) General Secretary G.L. Jogi.

15th June 2010 What is the compulsion for the struggle that Joint Action Committee of Associations/Unions of BSNL Executive & Non Executives is constrained to revives agitational programme ?
Government’s sheer apathy, indifference and calculated moves of the vested interests in DOT in not protecting the legitimate interests of BSNL by forcing it to arbitrarily pay 3G spectrum charges amounting more than Rs 10, 186.58 crores in sharp contrast to Rs 5731, 5054, 6499, 2021, 5864 and 5769 crores paid by Bharti, Vodafone, Aircel, Reliance, Tata and Idea respectively and also more than 13000 crores as spectrum charges for BWA so that BSNL lands in bankruptcy and is eventually privatized.
While BSNL is forced to pay 10, 186 crores for Pan India licence on Pan India basis, without giving it an opportunity to select service areas of its choice based on its commercial potential, Private operators were offered complete choice to decide select service areas on the basis of their commercial interests and thus have had to pay less than half of what BSNL has been forced to pay by DOT. Not only that, huge and incredible rural and social obligations of the government that BSNL has been relentlessly meeting have been totally disregarded by the insensitive bureaucracy in DOT.
It is extremely important to mention here that New Telecom Policy -1999 clearly mentions that BSNL need not pay any entry fees for getting cellular mobile services license bundled with 4.4 mhz having provision to enhance it to 6.2 mhz. Even the full license fee paid by BSNL was required to be reimbursed according to the provisions of New Telecom Policy – 1999.
BSNL Management’s strong and justified plea of completely exempting BSNL from payment of 3G spectrum charges based on formidable grounds of policy and commitments of the government from time to time and also the fact that BSNL have had no choice to select Circles based on its commercial decisions is being brushed aside by bureaucracy and vested interests in DOT whose sole job and objective is to fully protect the interests of the private operators. BSNL shall be within a couple of days forced by DOT to pay more than 13000 crores as spectrum charges for BWA auction for which presently is continuing. BSNL does not need any BWA spectrum since it has already more than adequate copper to provide reliable broadband services. There is absolutely no justification for BSNL to hold on to BWA spectrum and shell out more than Rs 13000 crores from its reserves for having met social obligations of the government to provide broadband in remote areas on BWA spectrum. Here also private operators are given exclusive choice to decide their select service areas based on their commercial interests whereas BSNL will be forced to pay on pan India basis without giving it any opportunity to select its service areas.
Why all this is being done by bureaucracy and a couple of officers having strong nexus with private operators and developed firm vested interests?
The game plan of bureaucracy and these vested interests officers in DOT dealing with licensing policy is crystal clear. By forcing BSNL to pay 10186 crores for 3G spectrum and roughly 13000 crores on BWA spectrum, the resources of BSNL will not only be exhausted but will be in negative. Reserves, not profits, will be in negative, Company would be declared bankrupt and serious efforts aimed at Privatization of this prestigious national telecom Company will begin, and with that the objective of MNCs and their henchmen in the government and the bureaucracy will be achieved.
Can anyone in BSNL regardless of his affiliation remain a mute spectator when all out and calibrated efforts are being made to make BSNL bankrupt and finally sell it?
We should all rise above all other considerations regardless of where we stand and comprehensively defeat the diabolical designs of the vested interests within and outside the government to sell this Company to MNCs in a manner similar to VSNL. Calculated strategy and efforts have started to sell BSNL by declaring it bankrupt and it all depends how much united we remain at this crucial hour to defeat such sinister moves of the vested interests.

Joint Action Committee of Associations/Unions of BSNL Executive & Non Executives revives agitational programme 
<<< Details Programme >>>
10th June 2010 GS writes to DIR (HR) on the pay anomaly of JTO 2007 and 2008 batches: JTOs of 2007 & 2008 batch recruited in the pay scale of 9850- 250-14600. Provisionally they were placed in the E1 scale of 16400- 40500 resulting a pay loss of Rs. 4000 per month which is against the recruitment conditions. Some circles have fixed their pay in the pre-revised scales to avoid the anomaly.
<<< CLICK HERE FOR LETTER >>>
To overcome this serious anomaly SNEA (I) demands-
1) fixing their pay in the pre - revised scale to at least protect their pay and
2) standard pay scales E2 & E3 in place of E1A & E2A are to be processed and sent to DOT.

Circle Secretary SNEA(I) Bihar taken up the above case in the interest of all BSNL recruited JTOs of 2001,2002,2005,2007 & 2008 batch with General Secretary SNEA(I) CHQ and same may be raised on proper place. Positive result should be expected in future.

10th June 2010 Joint Action Committee (JAC) Meeting on 09.06.2010:
JAC leaders met on 09.06.2010 at New Delhi and discussed the status of demands / assurances given by Hon'ble MoC&IT in the meeting held on 20.04.2010, on the first day of Indefinite Strike. JAC after detailed discussions come to the conclusion that there is no seriousness on the part of DOT/BSNL for the redressal of the JAC demands and on the assurances given by Hon'ble MoC&IT. Even after a lapse of 1 month and 20 days, the Cabinet Note on ITS officers' absorption and IDA pension revision issues has not been prepared and circulated to nodal ministries, whereas the assurance was given that within one month period the Cabinet Note on both the issues will be sent for inter-ministerial circulation and thereafter within 2-3 months Cabinet approval will be taken.
JAC earlier demanded the waival of 3G and WiMAX spectrum charges in view of the financial condition and requested CMD, BSNL to take up the matter with Govt. Instead of taking up the matter with Govt, BSNL Management has promptly paid 3G spectrum charges of Rs. 10,186.56 Cr to DOT from the cash reserves without showing any resistance or a request for deferred payment in view of the continuous decline of BSNL's profit.
When WiMAX spectrum auction is over within a few days, BSNL has to pay another 9000 Cr and by that BSNLs cash reserve will exhaust.
BSNL Management ignoring the demand of JAC and without bothering the BSNL's financial health is trying to exhaust BSNLs cash reserves. This is a very serious development that will definitely affect all future developmental plans of BSNL including procurement of GSM equipments.
It was seriously viewed by JAC and demanded that 3G spectrum charges should immediately be refunded to BSNL and consider deferred payment for a period of 20 years (license period) on yearly basis for 3G and WiMAX spectrum charges.
The assurance given by Hon'ble MoC&IT and CMD, BSNL for the procurement of 10 million GSM lines immediately for Eastern & Northern Zones has been reduced to 5.5 million GSM lines by BSNL Board on the intervention of DOT and that will adversely affect the growth of BSNL and its viability.
The 78.2% IDA neutralisation instead of 68.8% as per DPE OM dated 02.04.2009 has not been implemented by BSNL Management, despite the assurance given by the Hon'ble MoC&IT.
JAC demanded that Govt. of India should direct all Central / State Govt, departments and PSUs to avail telecom services from BSNL / MTNL only and also should allow BSNL to procure equipments on competitive rates from any supplier / vendor on international security standards irrespective of technology.
On the above issues, JAC unanimously decided to resort immediate trade union action programmes i.e. Massive Demonstration on Monday, 14th June 2010 during Lunch / Closing hours and Mass Dharna for one day on Wednesday, 16th June 2010 at Circle / SSA HQs. All the Circle /District/ Branch Secretaries are requested to ensure successful implementation of Agitation Programmes. Future course of action will be decided by JAC shortly.
