In the pre-revised pay, the IDA is learned to have increased by 7.1% w.e.f. 01.04.2011.



Another landmark achievement for the JTO cadre -- For the last seven to eight months, we are struggling to get this promotion order. BSNL prepared the SC/ST roster which took much more time than we expected and made the promotions based on the roster.SNEA(I) CHQ didn't updated anything on our website regarding the progress of this DPC for the last few months as some court cases are going on at different CATs and there was a strong move to stop the promotions. Finally we could get the much delayed promotion orders for the vacancies upto the year 2008-09.The stay at Hon Chennai CAT in the case filed on behalf of AIGETOA was only for the vacancy year 2009-10 and on the second eligibility list (as their prayer was only for that).
Most of the SDEs on promotion have been given posting in the same cricles where the vacancies are available. About  127 SDEs are posted to Deficit Circles.

The stay at Hon'ble Chennai CAT was only for the vacancy year 2009-10 and for the second eligibility list.
We extend our sincere gratitude and thanks to Sh. S.C. Misra, CMD BSNL,former DIR(HR) Shri Gopal Das, DIR(HR), Sh. A.K. Garg, Director(HR) , Sh. A.K. Jain, Sr. GM(Pers.), Sh. Virendra Prasad, Addl. GM(Pers.), Sh. V.K. Sinha, AGM(Pers.-II) and the concern  officers of Pers. Cell, BSNL CO for issuing the promotion order
SNEA(I) Bihar Circle express its gratitude to all the SSA/Branch Secretaries and other office bearers at all the levels for their tremendous support. Congratulations to all the promoted Executives

29th March 2011 Moment of great pride and satisfaction- Association owns a Sprawling New Home at New Delhi.

Association owns a new three storey, three side open 24 X 48 ft. (127 Sq yds) sprawling building just 50 M from Ramesh Nagar Metro station in the most posh Colony of Ramesh Nagar. The new spacious home of beloved Comrades of this Association faces two beautiful parks, has a 12 ft road in the front (adjoining park) and 10 ft road on the right side and a 6ft back line. The building has a big hall, a lobby and a bed room with luxurious wash room in the ground floor plus sufficient parking space annexed to the hall. First floor has two spacious bed rooms, wash room, kitchen, lobby and a huge balcony measuring 24 X 12 ft The second floor has three bed rooms, kitchen, lobby, wash room and balcony measuring 12X12 ft. On the top we have a terrace almost about the size of the plot. The structure of the building is quite sturdy and of quality material, has sufficient wardrobes studded with quality wood work and other accessories. The building is facing North-East.

The total cost of the building is approximately 3.0 Crores (Rs 2.85 crores actual cost+ miscellaneous charges like registration fees, broker commission etc.)

With this new spacious home of ours at the National Capital, we are not only proud of having realized our dream but our comrades visiting National Capital now onwards will have a very comfortable stay along with their families in their new home. In terms of connectivity, it is about 10 and 14 Kms from New Delhi Railway station and the Airport.

 Purchase of this this new building has been possible entirely because of painstaking and sincere efforts of our both AGSs at HQs, Com Khan and Com. Sebstian, and our office assistant Digamber. 

With the purchase of this new home, we have exhausted our reserves and will have to struggle to meet our day to day expenditure unless our beloved Comrades throughout the country voluntarily and instantaneously come forward to generously contribute to meet the huge cost of the building as well as huge legal expenditure that we are incurring these days to defend our RRs to ensure our functional promotions. There should be virtually no need for CHQ to make fresh appeal to contribute since CWC Bhopal has already decided to collect Rs 500/ per member to meet expenditure on both purchase of new building and legal. Moreover, the response should be voluntary and with great amount of enthusiasm, pride and satisfaction of having acquired a huge asset for our beloved Comrades. Donations need not be coercive. That is why we are not making any specific appeals in this regard.

26th March 2011 First time, BSNL Management/Committee agreed to consider the proposal of standard Scales E2 & E3 for JTOs/JAOs and SDEs/AOs or equivalent cadres after strong and suitable facts in terms of financial implication present by SNEA(I) CHQ:The Committee constituted to resolve the pay anomaly of JTOs of 2007 & 2008 batch as per the demand taken up by this SNEA(I) , called us for a meeting on 25.03.2011 at 10:30 Hrs. GS along with both AGSs held discussions with the committee. Chairman and other members Sr GM(Estt), Sr GM(SR), Sr GM(Pers), Sr GM(EF) were present. DGM(Estt), DGM(EF), AGM(SR) and AGM(P-IV) were also present.

 Committee suggested E1 + 5 increments for JTO cadre and E2 scale for SDE cadre. Committee also suggested that the demand for “First Time Bound Promotion after 4 years” also will be met by this proposal. It is also learned that some are agreeable for this proposal.
The proposal of E1+5 increment and E2 scale was totally rejected by the SNEA(I) on 03.03.2011 itself and decided to continue with the agitation programme. Later based on the assurance of the Chairman and Sr GM(SR) to reconsider their proposal, SNEA(I) deferred the Dharna on 04.03.2011.

 SNEA(I) pointed out that lowering the pay scale of SDE to E2 and giving TBP after 4 years was not our demand.

 By this even after getting TBP in 4 years, a JTO will not reach the minimum of E2A scale (Rs. 22500). Similarly a JTO will not reach the minimum of proposed E3 scale (Rs 24900) even after 8 years. (How this proposal will be acceptable?)

 Chairman asked our proposal to solve the issue. GS explained how JTO cadre has been recognised by premier agencies like IIM/Banglore, National Productivity Council during IVth and Vth CPC period etc. The JTO cadre has been continuously uplifted in 1987, 1996 and in 2003. It is unfortunate that BSNL is not recognising this cadre and demoralising it by lowering the pay scales. These young JTO/JAOs, SDEs/AOs has to be motivated and that is the need of the hour. Demoralising them by demotion at the entry level itself will be disastrous for the company.

 SNEA(I) proposed standard pay scales of E2, E3, E4, E5, E6 and E7 for JTO, SDE, Sr SDE, DE, DGM, SGJAG and equivalent cadres.

Committee opined that this will have huge financial implications especially in terms of pension contribution to DOT. The change of scales above E3 may not give any benefit to the employees also.  

SNEA(I) made a compromise for the upliftment of the cadre and suggested that the change of scales from E3 to E4 onwards can be considered after the pension contribution issue is resolved and now the proposal of giving E2 and E3 pay scales for JTOs, SDEs and equivalent cadres may be considered.  

Comrades, we had shown the same spirit in 1987 when pay scales revised to 1640-60-2900. Thousands of our senior comrades faced pay loss and recovery when their pay reduced from Rs 1720/ to Rs 1700/ on revision of pay scales. But all of them unitedly fought for the cadre. We should also unitedly fight with the same spirit again for the upliftment of the JTO cadre.

 Finally, Committee agreed to work out the financial implications on giving E2, E3 pay scales for JTOs, SDEs etc.

 For the first time, BSNL Management/Committee agreed to consider the proposal of E2, E3 scales for JTOs and SDEs etc.

 For achieving this goal, SNEA(I) requires wholehearted support from all the Executives --- seniors as well as juniors.

 We should not allow the demotion of the cadres at any cost.

 GS letter to the Chairman of the Committee <<proposal>>

    • Placing JTOs and SDEs in a lower scale means demotion of around 35,000 Executives in BSNL which will be strongly opposed by SNEA(I).

      some important facts regarding financial implication:
        • There is no financial implication on giving E3 scale for SDEs etc as all of them already crossed the minimum of E3 scale as on 01.01.2007.

      • Similarly there will not be any hike in pay for DE and DGM cadres also as all of them crossed the minimum of the scale.


      • The financial implications on BSNL for implementing standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTO and SDE cadre is very small amount for the 5,500 JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 as given below.
      1. The maximum financial implication on giving E2 scale instead of E1A scale will be around Rs 21.07 Cores for one year. ((Rs 1750 + 43% IDA + Average 20% HRA + EPF @ 13.61%) x 12 months) = 21.07 Crores.
      1. The maximum financial implication on giving E2 scale instead of E1 + 5 increment will be around Rs 19.27 Cores for one year. (( Rs 1600 + 43% IDA + Average 20% HRA + EPF @ 13.61%) x  12 months) = 19.27 Crores.

       If lower pay scales like E1, E2 are given, then also there will be financial implications in terms of Time Bound Promotions.

      1) If E1 and E2 scale is given for JTO and SDE equivalent cadres, then there will be equal financial implications on account of Time Bound Promotions also.

      2) If revised E1A, E2A scales or E1 and E2 scales are given, then JTOs joined on or after 2001 will get their first time bound promotion on 01.01.2007 itself or on completion of 4 years whichever is later as all of them touches the minimum of the next higher E2 or E2A scale. For 2005 batch, all of them will get first TBP on completion of 4 years. Normally they are getting only after 6 years.

      3)  If E2, E3 pay scales given, then almost all will get their first time bound on completion of 5 or 6 years only.

      4) There are around 10000 JTOs/JAOs joined since 2001 who are eligible for their first time bound promotion on or after 01.01.2007.

      5) All of them will get their every TBP two years in advance, as they are getting their first TBP in 4 years instead of 6 years. Their pay on 01.01.2007 or on completion of 4 years will be between 24000 and 25000.

      6) The maximum financial implication on giving this TBP will be around Rs 16.42 Cores for one year ((Rs 750 + 43% IDA + Average 20% HRA + EPF @ 13.61%) x  12 months) = 16.42 Crores. Second year also same additional expenditure will be there.

      7) If E2, E3 scale is not getting, 2007 and 2008 and the future batches will be the biggest sufferers in terms of lower pay scales as well as TBP.

25th March 2011 LATEST UPDATE # Pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs and SDEs or Equivalent cadres:: The Committee invited SNEA(I) for a formal meeting at 10:30 Hrs on 25.03.2011.
Assn will reiterate its consistent stand for standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc for JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs etc and continuing pre-revised scale of 9850-250-14600 till finalization of new scales.
In the earlier meetings on 03rd March and subsequent meetings, Assn made it clear that E1 + 5 increment for JTO/JAOs and E2 scale for SDE/AOs are not at all acceptable. Assn deferred the agitation only when Chairman and GM(SR) assured to review the proposal.

24th March 2011 Pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs and SDEs or Equivalent cadres: GS again writes to the Chairman of the Committee regarding Placing JTOs recruited after 01.01.2007 in the pre-revised pay scale of 9850-250-14600 provisionally till finalization of standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs and SDEs <<Click Here for Letter>>

GS and AGS K. Sebastin met Shri K C G K Pillai, PGM(FP) and Chairman of the committee and held further discussions on the issue. We requested him to provisionally recommend pre revised 9850-250-14600 scale for JTOs and process standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc for JTO, SDE etc. Later on GS and AGS met GM(EF) and held further discussions on the same issue. It is understood that Committee explored the possibility of giving E1 + 5 increments for JTO cadre and E2 scale for SDE cadre. GS categorically told the Chairman and GM (EF) that SNEA(I) already made it clear several times that it will not allow the demotion of JTO and SDE cadres on one pretext or other and E1+5 increment is not at all acceptable to us even though the amount is slightly higher than revised E1A scale. The only one option is to process standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc as DOT already rejected E1A and E2A pay scales. Chairman and GM (EF) requested further inputs in this regard and we promised to provide the same soon. SNEA(I) determined to fight for standard pay scales.

14th March 2011 New CMD for BSNL & MTNL by this month end: The two telecom PSUs -- BSNL and MTNL are likely to get their respective CMDs by the end of this month.
"After March 18, which is the last date for the receipt of applications by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), it will take 2-3 weeks to get the name from the selection committee formed under the leadership of Sam Pitroda," Telecom Secretary R Chandrashekar told PTI.
The post of BSNL is vacant since August 1, 2010, and in MTNL, it is vacant since January 10, 2010.
The appointment shall be on contract and for a period of three years, which can be extended for a further period of three years based on a performance evaluation by an external expert group.
Earlier, the DoT scrapped the list of successful candidates picked by the old selection panel and had set-up the new search-cum-selection panel to carry out the process of selection of CMDs for the two state-run telecom firms. Meanwhile, government has given the additional charge of BSNL CMD to  DoT Member (Services)Shri S C Misra. The old search-cum-selection committee formed in July, 2010, for the job had come under controversy. The BSNL employees' union(SNEA) had challenged the process and selection made by the old search panel in the Delhi High Court. The new panel is headed by Sam Pitroda. Other members in this panel are UIDAI Chairman Nandan Nilekani , Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister T K A Nair and Cabinet Secretary K M Chandrashekhar.

7th March 2011 Good News for JTOs of 2001 & 2002 batch in Bihar Circle:Officiating promotion from JTO(T) to SDE(T)-SINCERE EFFORT NEVER GOES IN VAIN  and once again Sincere and Consistent effort made by SNEA(I) Bihar Circle become fruitful for our Young and Dynamic Executives.    Name of 72 numbers of JTO from 2001 and 2002 batch who are eligible for officiating  promotion fro JTO(T) to SDE(T) has been issued by Circle Office Patna.The ACR/APAR and VC report called by Admin Section. The compilation work of ACR/APAR from 2005-06 to 2009-10 is under process and status will be uploaded on our website within a couple days in the interest of our members.
Once again requested to all JTOs of 2001 & 2002 batch must be submit their ACR/APAR upto current Financial Year if not submit till date.

The JTOs/JAOs belonging to the 2007 and 2008 batches, having appointed them in the pre revised IDA scales of 9850-250-14600, subjecting them to a monthly loss of Rs.5000 arbitrarily fixing them at the minimum of revised E1(Rs. 16400)  scale for just no reason whatsoever, whereas the JTOs recruited before 2007 year pay has been fixed up in the previous pay scale. It has caused discrimination in the same cadre of JTO. At least fix them in the pre-revised IDA scale of 9850-250-250-14600 till finalization of new IDA scales(E2) for JTOs/JAOs.


Present Grade

Pre revised scale

Revised scale

Min pay on 30% fitment

Proposed Grade

Proposed scale











































It can be seen that the starting of standard scales of E2 and E3 is even lower than that of the minimum of pay fixation with 30% fitment as on 01.01.07, i.e, even after getting standard scales of E2 and E3, there is absolutely no increase in the basic pay demonstrated in the following chart:

JTOs/JAOs joined

Basic pay

DA 68.8 %

DA 78.2 %

On 01.01.2007 with 30% fitment

Rs. 21,620/-

Rs. 22,820/-

Proposed scale as on 01.01.2007 (E1A scale)

Rs. 18,850/-

Rs. 18,850/-

Standard E2 scale

Rs. 20,600/-

Rs. 20,600/-

The minimum of the proposed E1A scale is less than that of the pay and allowances received in the pre revised scale as on 01.01.2007.

This is justified and broad-shouldered reason that SNEA(I) demands to resolve this issue on replacing standard IDA scales by E2 and E3 for JTOs/JAOs and SDEs/AOs or equivalent executives in BSNL w.e.f. 01.01.2007 at the earliest.
