Dear Comrades!  Hearty Congratulations!

 

Due to continuous and consistent efforts of AIBSNLEA CHQ (from March 2020 onwards) the favourable Clarificatory orders and approval of the CMD BSNL has been conveyed to CGM Telungana on 13.11.2020 regarding Pay fixation issue of JAO 1999 batch. AIBSNLEA CHQ whole heartedly convey its thanks and gratitude to the CMD BSNL, Director (HR), Director (Finance), PGM (Pers.), DGM (Pers.) and whole Pers. Team.  It is delayed Justice not a denied Justice.

10.11.2020: GS writes to The PGM (Pers) BSNL Corporate Office regarding request for placing in the JTO graduation list- <<<Click here for letter>>>

10.11.2020: GS writes to Shri P.K.Purwar, CMD BSNL regarding immediate conduction of LDCE - 33% quota as per SDE(T) RR from  the Vacancy Year 2011-12 onwards CPC was not conducted for the issuance of the Promotion orders from JTO(T)  SDE (T) for the vacancy year 2011-12 onwards for SCF 67% quota and through LDCE 33% quota as per existing SDE(T) RR from among the eligible JTOs. The 1999 Batch LICE JTOs and the BSNL JTOs recruits including 2001 Batch onwards are still waiting for their first promotion for the last 6 to 20years.

 

Last DPC was conducted in June 2018 for the vacant posts upto the Vacancy Year 2010-11 for SCF quota hence, for the LDCE quota promotions upto the vacancy year 2010-11 were made through LDCE 2015. The LDCE for next vacancy year 2011-12 is still to be announced even after delay of five years and two years have been passed since the last SCF & LDCE promotions issued in June’2018. We are unable to understand that how can we call it as Fast Track promotion of JTO to SDE (T).

 

AIBSNLEA is representing this matter at different level for quite long time. It is learnt that the CPC work is going on in Pers. Branch for consideration of Promotion orders from JTO(T) to SDE(T) under SCF 67% quota from the Vacancy Year 2011-12 onwards. Likewise BSNL Management has to conduct the LDCE under 33% quota as per SDE RR in a time bound manner. Sir, as per SDE(T) RR, LDCE is to be conducted every year in a time bound manner. But it is a matter of deep concern that LDCEs were conducted only three times (2007, 2012 & 2015) during the span of 20 years since BSNL formation. The last LDCE exam was conducted only in 2015 i.e. for the Vacancy Year 2010-11, for which the promotion orders were issued only in June, 2018 along with promotion orders of SCF quota.

 

We would therefore request your good self to kindly intervene in the matter and issue instructions to the Officers concerned to immediately notify the LDCE for the due vacant posts of SDE (T) as per existing SDE (T)RR  so that the young JTOs of BSNL may get their first due fast track promotion in time and serve the Company with a better zeal and enthusiasm.

20.10.2020: GS AIBSNLEA, AGS and CHQ-Auditor met PGM (Pers.) CO BSNL on 16.10.2020 and discussed regarding:

 

1) Request for Preparation of AIEL List No.3 for JTO(T) : We requested  for the early preparation of All India Eligibility List of JTO(T) for the Recruitment Year 2009 to 2016. PGM(Pers.) mentioned that the gradation list particulars/details of JTOs promoted/recruited is being called for on today by the Pers Branch from the Circles from the Recruitment Year 2009 onwards with the instructions to furnish the details before 30.11.2020.

 

2) Request for consideration of Regular Promotions in all the Streams in the light of the DoT OM dated 13.10.2020: GS appraised the PGM(Pers) that thousands of Executives drawing Higher Scales are working in the entry level grade of JTO equivalent for 6 to 25 years and waiting for their 1st Promotion for the years together. Likewise SDE(T)/SDE(C/E/TF/Arch)/AOs & CCS cadres are waiting for their regular promotion since long. The Promotions are held up due to various Court Cases on Reservation & Seniority issues. AIBSNLEA has continuously pursuing and requesting the BSNL Management for the issuance of Regular Promotion Orders in all Cadres of all the Streams  in order to fill up the huge vacuum created due to VRS-2019 from Jan’ 2020 onwards.

(2) Consideration of AO to CAO regular promotion in the light of the DoT OM dated 13.10.2020: GS appraised the Director (Finance) that the Accounts Personnel, from 1996 JAO Batch onwards are waiting for their Promotion to the Grade of CAO despite the fact that vacancies are more than the available eligible Accounts Officers in BSNL.

GS appraised the Director (Fin) about the non-following of the instructions of BSNL Corporate Office and Hon’ble Supreme Court Judgment strictly by all the field units and intimated about the contrary order issued by the Estt. Branch of BSNL CO on 20.07.2020, resulting lakhs of Rupees have been recovered from the Ex-gratia Payment paid to the retirees who have gone on VRS under the Scheme of BSNL VRS-2019, in the name of excess payment and in violation of the Hon’ble Supreme Court Judgment. He further pleaded that it is not fair on the part of the BSNL Management to recover the said excess payment made to the employees (who have gone on VRS etc.,) before five years in a biased manner, which would be impermissible in Law and clear deviation from the Hon’ble Supreme Court Judgment as well as BSNL CO instructions.

 

GS further explained that the issue was discussed with Sr.GM (Estt.) but the Sr.GM (Estt) advised to take up the issue with the Director (Fin). After patient hearing, Director (Fin.) mentioned that he is not aware of the issue. GS immediately handed over the letter already addressed to Director (HR) with a copy to Director (Fin).

Today GS AIBSNLEA, AGS and CHQ-Auditor met PGM (Pers.) CO BSNL on courtesy call. AIBSNLEA congratulate Shri R.K. Goyal for assuming the charges of PGM (Pers.) and we discussed the following issues:

We further explained the PGM (Pers.) that as per the SDE(T) RR 2002 Amendment (That is Modification/addition/deletion in SDE(T) RR 2002) circulation dated 08-May-2018 “the Inter-se Seniority of the officers promoted against Seniority Quota (SQ-67%) and those who are promoted through LDCE/LICE quota (CQ-33%) against the particular vacancy year shall be fixed in the ratio of 2:1 irrespective of the year of appointment/ date of joining”This Modification will be applicable with effect from 28/08/2015 onwards only.

08.10.2020 Meeting with Shri P.K. Sinha Ji, Member (Finance) DoT:

Today GS AIBSNLEA, AGS, FS/CHQ and CHQ-Auditor met Member (Finance) DoT and extend our sincere thanks on behalf of AIBSNLEA for conveying the Govt. approval for the Sovereign Guaranteed Bonds to BSNL to the tune of Rs.8500 Crores to meet out the Capex and the Debts of BSNL. Member (Finance) appreciated our concern and assured that DoT will always support BSNL for its Revival & Survival and he further mentioned that so many Govt. funded Projects viz: LWE, Smart City, Bharat Net etc., are allotted to BSNL to increase its revenue and Cash inflow. Member (Fin) also mentioned that DoT is always ready to offer so many Govt. Projects to BSNL so as to increase its Cash Flow. However, BSNL Management is not ready to give its consent for the additional Projects. We discussed the following important issues with Member (Finance) DoT:-

 

(1)Pension Contribution as per the Govt. Rule (FR 116): We requested the Member (Fin) to use his Good Offices with the MoF, Dept. of Expenditure for the approval of the payment of monthly Pension Contribution by BSNL (as per FR 116) on the basis of the actual Basic Pay instead of the maximum of the Pay Scale w.e.f 01.01.2007 as agreed by the Ex- Telecom. Minister Shri Manoj Sinha Ji with the AUAB Leaders. Member (Finance) mentioned that as decided by the Dept. of Expenditure necessary calculation/ inputs have been submitted to the DoE and positive results are expected shortly.

   We further requested Member (Fin.) that the issue has to be settled favourably since for the past 13 years (i.e. from 01.01.2007) BSNL has paid excess payment to the tune of more than Rs.2500 Crores towards the Pension Contribution to DoT.

 

(2)100% Neutralization of IDA w.e.f. 01.01.2017: We enquired about the status of the Neutralization of 100% IDA with the Basic Pay for the BSNL Employees w.e.f. 01.01.2017 for which the Memorandum has already been submitted by AIBSNLEA on 04.11.2019 in the meeting with Hon’ble Minister of Communications & IT, Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad Ji. In the Memorandum, AIBSNLEA has submitted that the IDA may be merged with basic pay from 01-01-2017 since it had crossed 50% bench mark. It is a routine practice in the Govt. of India. The similar decision has also been taken by the Government during 2004. Since DPE guidelines mentioned about the affordability and profitability to get any Pay Revision with additional fitment, we just urged upon to merely merge the IDA of 119.5% (i.e. 100% Neutralization) as on 01-01-2017 with the existing Basic Pay and give the benefit as done in the past. Member (Fin.) appreciated our concern and replied that your demand is genuine but due to Covid-19 and financial control austerity measures issued by the Ministry of Finance, this 100% Neutralization is not to be considered by the Govt at present.

 

(3)Monetization of Select Land/Building Telecom Assets: Member (Fin.) informed that process of Monetization of some selected Land Assets is at the final stage and it will be decided in the Committee Meeting soon which will definitely be benefited for BSNL.

 

(4)Immediate payment of Claims Recoverable from DoT: We requested Member (Fin.) to release the outstanding amount of Claims Recoverable from DoT to BSNL to the tune of Rs.1500 Crores viz: Govt. aided Projects, LSC, Pay & Allowance, Telecom Services provided to DoT/CCA/Term Cell, Rent of Buildings, Repair & Mtce, Electricity etc., Member (Fin.) mentioned that most of the outstanding amount of claims recoverable from DoT except Govt. funded Projects has already been cleared by the DoT. However, he advised to take up the issue with the BSNL Management to submit the proper claim, if any outstanding is there; we will immediately clear it since we are also equally concern with the Revival of BSNL.  

 

(5)Non-settlement of GPF Withdrawal from CCA Office Delhi for the BSNL Corporate Office employees: We informed Member (Fin.) that the requests for GPF Final Withdrawal/ Advances are pending for release of the payment since last two months with CCA Delhi for one or other reason.

   Member (Finance) immediately contacted CCA Delhi over phone and enquired about the status. CCA New Delhi replied to Member (Fin.) that due to Data updation which was recently transferred from DoT HQ to CCA New Delhi, some delay was there and now it is set right and also informed that no request is pending with CCA at present. Member (Fin.) advised us to follow up the issue with the concerned branch of BSNL Corporate Office and assured that if any problem is there, you are always free to contact me at any time. 

(6)Compensation for the BSNL employees who are maintaining essential Telecom Services throughout India against COVID-19 and financial assistance to the bereaved family member(s) of BSNL Employees, who expired due to Covid-19: We requested the Member (Finance) for the consideration of the payment of Compensation to the bereaved family members of BSNL Employees, who expired due to Covid-19 by maintaining the essential Telecom Services as per the proposal submitted by the BSNL. We appraised the untimely death of about 8 numbers of young JTOs/ SDEs/ DEs in BSNL due to Covid-19 while on duty and we also informed that AIBSNLEA has requested CMD BSNL to consider and release the Compensation amount to the bereaved Family Members. CMD BSNL informed us that the necessary proposal in this regard has already been submitted to DoT for consideration. Member (Fin.) replied that no such proposal has been received from BSNL till date and opined that it can be managed by BSNL itself.  

 

(7)Payment of the final installment of Ex-gratia to BSNL VRS-19 retirees: GS AIBSNLEA enquired about the payment of the last installment of Ex-gratia to be paid to the BSNL VRS-19 retirees which was assured to be paid before 30.06.2020 as per the Union Cabinet decision. Member (Finance) appreciated our concern and mentioned that till date no claim/demand regarding the payment of the final installment of Ex-gratia is received from BSNL.  He assured that DoT is ready to pay the same at any time as and when claim will be raised by BSNL. He further mentioned that DoT has already taken a Special Permission from the Ministry of Finance for the exemption from 5% Ceiling which was imposed by the MoF due to Covid-19 Pandemic. Member (Finance) further mentioned that any delay in payment is due to BSNL only as they are stating that some final adjustment is pending between the VRS retirees and the BSNL which has not yet been reconciled and final claim will be submitted after proper reconciliation only. However he further mentioned that DoT has to pay full remaining amount of the Ex-gratia to BSNL and if any settlement in between the VRS retirees and the BSNL is there, the same should have been reconciled timely and any delay in this regard is not a good practice by the BSNL.

The Meeting has lasted for more than One and Half hour.

05.10.2020 Grant of 5 (five) Advance Increments on the minimum revised E1 IDA Pay Scale of Rs.16400-40500 to the SRD JTOs  & DRs Specially abled  2010 batch, LDCE JAO 2013 batch  DR JAOs of 2015, 2018 batch, DR JTO of 2017 batch  LDCE JAO 2016 batch and LDCE JTOs  of 2016 & 2017 batches.

 

To the Kind attention of all Post 2010 Batch DR/LDCE JTOs & JAOs Batches:

Dear Friends! AIBSNLEA is the only Association continuously taking up the issue of E1+ 5 increments to the post 2010 JTO/JAO DR & LDCE  at different level for quite long time due to non approval  of E2 Scale by the DoT. GS, AIBSNLEA has written to the BSNL Management about this anomaly and explained about huge difference in Pay to the tune of Rs 10000/- between the two sets of Executives recruited after 01.01.2007 onwards which created widespread resentment among the young Executives. The young DR and LDCE JTOs/JAOs  were demoted to a lower Pay scale and placed in E1 scale provisionally.

Due to consistent  and continuous  efforts of AIBSNLEA , BSNL Board approved the grant of 5(five) advance increments on the minimum of the revised E1 pay scale of Rs. 16400-40500 to the directly recruited JTOs of 2007 and 2008 batches and directly recruited JAOs in respect of whom result declared in 2010 have been ordered to be fixed at Rs.19020/- and subsequently  BSNL Board approved the same for JAO 2010 LICE batch (both 10% Quota & 40% Quota).

Like that due to continuous persuasion of AIBSNLEA with the BSNL Management, the grant of 5(five) advance increments on the minimum of the revised E1 pay scale of Rs. 16400-40500 to SRD JTOs 2010 batch and LDCE JAOs 2013 batch has been considered and approved by the MC of the Board of Directors. But the approval of BSNL Board is kept pending for the past so many months due to BSNL Restructuring Plan.

Friends! now Restructuring Plan is likely to be finalized in BSNL and it is the right time to intervene in the matter. We always standing with Solidarity for the legitimate rights of the Executives and get them settled also but now it is the responsibility of the Majority as well as Support Associations to get settled this issue immediately.  

AIBSNLEA brought to the notice of the CMD, BSNL that the initial Pay of DR JTO Specially-abled 2010 Batch, DR JAOs of 2015, 2018 Batch, DR JTOs of 2017 Batch, LDCE JAOs of 2016 batch and LDCE JTOs of 2016 & 2017 batch recruited/appointed as per the same Recruitment Rules as of DR JAO 2010 Batch was fixed at Rs.16400/- only and they are deprived from getting of 5 Advance increments; which is clear disparity and serious anomaly among the similarly placed JTOs/JAOs. The difference in basic pay of DR JTO Specially abled 2010 Batch, DR JAOs of 2015, 2018, DR JTOs of 2017, LDCE JAOs 2016 and LDCE JTOs 2016 & 2017 batches become Rs 2620/- (Rs,19020– Rs.16400) comparing to the DR JTOs of 2007 batch, 2008 batch and JAOs of 2010 LDCE batch. If other allowances are added, the real difference in salary today will be around Rs 10,000/-. On implementation of 3rd PRC, the difference will further increase and continue with time due to increase in IDA and annual increment. Further all are facing major losses in the form of career progression (time bound promotion), retirement benefits like E.P.F., Gratuity etc., due to discrimination of the initial basic pay compared to other similarly placed JTO/JAOs. 

AIBSNLEA in it’s letter also mentioned that they will get E-2 Scale as per the time bound EPP after 6 years only since they are placed in Rs.16400- 40500 Scale and they have not touched the next Scale within 4 years (as per the BSNL EPP) due to non grant 5(five) Advance increments. Whereas the earlier 2007&2008 DR JTO batch, 2010 DR JAO and 2010 LDCE batches  have got E2 Scale in 4 years which is the great injustice  and discrimination.

Due to implementation of VRS-2019 in BSNL and sudden outbreak of the present pandemic situation, the immediate propulsion faced by the Executives, especially the younger ones are hard to believe. They have already labeled themselves as silent fighters, who fought not only for their livelihood but also to run the Dreams of Indian Telecommunication amidst the most turbulent condition. Surprisingly, these Energetic, Educated and Committed Brigades have continuously been deprived in many spheres relating to their career in BSNL service. The financial difference of Rs.10,000/- per month between them and their counterparts due to Pay loss  is unimaginable and unfair too.

In view of the foregoing,  AIBSNLEA fervently appeal to the CMD BSNL to kindly intervene in the matter and cause to issue necessary instructions to the Officers concerned to extend E1+5 increments to SRD JTOs 2010 Batch, DR JTO Specially-abled 2010 Batch, LDCE JAOs 2013 Batch, DR JAOs of 2015, 2018 Batch, DR JTOs of 2017 Batch, LDCE JAOs 2016 and LDCE JTOs 2016 & 2017 Batches so as to increase the morale of the Young Executives.....<<<Click here for letter>>>

28.09.2020 Meeting with CMD BSNL:

Today GS & AGS AIBSNLEA met with CMD BSNL:

At the outset, we congratulated CMD BSNL for making efforts by his good office and his Team to create the Trust & Faith in BSNL among the Investors since BSNL got over subscribed of the BSNL Bonds issued on 21.09.2020 i.e. more than twice for a total worth of Rs.17183.10 Cr. 

CMD BSNL thanked the Investors to show their faith in BSNL and mentioned that due to positive & constructive support from the Secretary (Telecom), DoT Officers, Ministry of Finance/Govt. Of India and the untiring efforts made by BSNL officers involved in the matter, it was possible. It was a time bound work and successfully released within a short span of time. 

We discussed regarding:

(A) Status of Reversion of 2007- LDCE SDEs (2001 DR Batch):

CMD mentioned that the Committee has been constituted to resolve the issue and it is expected that committee will submit its report very soon and will be resolved thereafter. However, CMD mentioned that he is not aware about the latest development and advised us to meet the officers concerned in this regard.  

Earlier, as requested by AIBSNLEA, a Committee was formed to look in to the issues regarding Reversion of 2007- LDCE SDEs (2001 DR Batch). AIBSNLEA submitted its views before the Committee Members during the month of June, 2020 as per the Directions of the Director (HR). The Committee required reports from all the Circles. The same was received by the Pers. Branch. Several rounds of meeting of the Committee was conducted for the past 4 months and it is reliably learnt that recommendation of the Committee is  positive and the decision will be taken after the approval of the Competent Authority shortly.

(B) Status of JAO 1999 Batch Pay fixation and recovery issue in respect of Telungana and AP Circles:- GS handed over the letters written by GS AIBSNLEA in this regard to CMD BSNL. CMD assured that the issue will be resolved after discussion with the Director (HR).

GS briefed about the history of the case & regarding the discussions already held with Director (HR) and his team in this regard. CMD assured to look into the matter.

 

(C) Regularization of Salary:-  We enquired about the disbursement of Monthly Salary in time since BSNL got money through Bonds and the employees are facing financial problems in the absence of timely payment of monthly salary to them. CMD mentioned that BSNL has more than 20000 Crore Loan from Banks, first it will be reduced and the disbursement of monthly Salary will be streamlined within few months.

 

(D) Regular Promotions in all the Streams since acute shortage in almost all the Cadres due to VRS-19:

CMD mentioned that after Restructuring is completed and implemented, the promotions will also be looked into wherever due/feasible & possible.

 

CMD was too busy and we could not discuss remaining issues due to paucity of time. CMD assured to meet again and discuss remaining issues in detail.

28.09.2020GS writes to Shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL regarding

(1) Request for Promotions of Executives in all Streams/Grades in BSNL on “Regular Basis”, instead of any ‘Look-After arrangement’ from among the Executives already drawing Higher Pay Scales.... <<<Click here for letter>>>

(2) Request for Promotions from DGM (Adhoc) to DGM (Regular) for both in Telecom Engineering and Finance Streams....<<<Click here for letter>>>

28.09.2020GS writes to Shri Arvind Vadnerkar, Director (HR), BSNL Board regarding request for issuance of Clarification regarding Non-recovery of excess payment made for a period in excess of five years to the retired or due to retire within One Year Executives in pursuance to the Hon’ble Supreme Court Judgment- <<<Click here for letter>>>
25.09.2020Conciliation conducted by the RLC (Central),Delhi on 24.9.2020 on the demands of the 3 Days Strike held from 18.2.2019  to 20.2.2019:

The RLC (Central) conducted a conciliation meeting on 24.9.2020, on the demands contained in the Strike Notice, served by the AUAB for the 3 days Strike which took place from 18th February, 2019. Com.S.Sivakumar, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com.P.Abhimanyu, Convenor, AUAB & GS BSNLEU, Com.Suresh Kumar, GS, BSNL MS, Com.Anil Kumar, GS, BSNL ATM and Com.H.P.Singh, GS, BSNL OA, participated in this conciliation. From the BSNL Management side, Shri A.K.Sinha, DGM(SR) participated in the conciliation meeting. The important arguments placed by the AUAB in the meeting are as detailed below:-

1.  Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL:The Government has allotted 4G spectrum to BSNL. But, BSNL could not launch 4G Service, due to the cancellation of its 4G Tender, as per the directive of the Government of India. The AUAB demanded that BSNL should be allowed to launch its 4G Service immediately.

2.     Pay Revision to Employees: The DoT has already directed BSNL Management to immediately negotiate the wage settlement of the Non-Executives, sign the agreement and send the same for the approval of the DoT. However, BSNL Management had abruptly discontinued the wage negotiation. BSNL Management should be told to resume the wage negotiations.

3.     Pension Revision: Pension Revision has already been implemented to the DoT retirees. Whereas, their counterparts in BSNL, are not getting the Pension Revision till date. The Government should immediately implement Pension revision to the BSNL retirees by de-linking it from the Pay revision of the serving employees.

4.     Payment of Pension contribution: The AUAB demanded that the Government of India Rule should be implemented in respect of payment of Pension Contribution by BSNL to DoT. (i.e.,  As per F.R.116,  Pension contribution to be paid on actual basic Pay instead of the Maximum of the Pay Scale).

5.     Superannuation Benefits (SAB) of the Directly Recruited employees: The CMD BSNL assured in February, 2019 that BSNL's contribution towards the SAB would be increased by 3% before 31.03.2019 and the short fall in BSNL’s 30% contribution would be made good in the subsequent financial year. The Management has gone back from this assurance. The settlement of this demand should not be dragged on, by linking it with the financial condition of the Company.  The Management should immediately start contributing its full 30% contribution towards the SAB.

After the discussion, the RLC directed the BSNL Management to discuss and decide the issue of at least Wage Revision of the Non-Executives. Next sitting of the Conciliation will be held at 11:30 hrs on 26.11.2020.

25.09.2020 GS writes to The Director (HR), BSNL Board request for issuance of instructions to follow BSNL Executive Transfer Policy in true spirit, which is not followed scrupulously by the BSNL Uttarakhand Circle Administration in issuance of Bulk Intra-Circle transfers of SDEs in the interest of Service <<<Click here for the letter>>>

Purwar, CMD BSNL requesting to issue necessary instructions/guidelines to all concerned for plugging the extraordinary slips in the growing up FTTH Sector for BSNL through N/E LCOs to avert turns which may open up Pandora Box resulting in nail-biting situations to BSNL....

AIBSNLEA CHQ received feedback from many of the Circle Secretaries & Field Units that wide spared anguish are being reported by many of the BSNL FTTH Customers connected through N/E LCOs that Voice quality is not there, unpleasant noise while on hook, one-way speech etc. etc.,

On behalf of AIBSNLEA, we submitted our suggestions & views that:

 

*Quality of both “Voice” and “Data” may be ensured...

*AT procedure for BSNL OLTs may be extended to non-BSNL OLTs also...

*Authenticity of address for FTTH provision by LCOs may be cross checked...

*As per the constraints in allotment of VLAN-ID for Voice Service, chance of disguised fraudulent voice calls prevails in FTTH Service. Any Directory number can be configured from any other ONT. This may be arrested by providing password changing options to the Customers. This can be implemented through NIB Nodes...

Director (Finance) mentioned that it is the Team work and it is the credibility of the BSNL where Investors have shown their faith in BSNL. On behalf of AIBSNLEA, we congratulated CMD BSNL, Board of Directors and the Banking Team of BSNL Corporate Office for making untiring efforts for the successful release of BSNL Bonds with in a short time. We  discussed regarding:

 

(1)Compensation for the BSNL employees who are maintaining essential Telecom Services throughout India against COVID-19 and financial assistance and compassionate appointment to the bereaved family member(s) of BSNL Employees, who expired due to Covid-19:

AIBSNLEA taken up the matter with CMD BSNL & Director (Fin.) and  discussed in several meetings since March 2020. As per the request of AIBSNLEA, a proposal has been moved for the Compensation to the bereaved family members of BSNL Employees, who expired due to Covid-19 for the approval of CMD BSNL.

In addition to that as requested by AIBSNLEA with CMD BSNL and Director (Fin.) on 25.08.2020, a MC Note was moved for considering Compassionate Appointment to the eligible bereaved family members of the deceased BSNL Employee.

It is reliably learnt that the issue was discussed in the Management Committee Meeting held on 22.09.2020 and the MC required some additional inputs in this regard.

AIBSNLEA will continue its efforts for getting compensation and compassionate appointment for the bereaved family members of the deceased BSNL employees.

(2)Consideration of request transfers of Accounts Personnel:

We requested the Director (Fin) to consider the pending request transfers in the Cadre of CAO/AO since they have already completed more than 30 months service in the present Circle and requested for transfer back to their Home Circles to join with their family. We also impressed upon the Director (Fin) that the Accounts Personnel are facing so much problems due to Covid-19 in other than their Home Circles and further requested to consider the transfer requests on Humanitarian Grounds. Director (Fin) assured to consider the transfer requests on priority basis. However, Director (Fin) mentioned that the orders will be issued after analyzing and reviewing the Overall Scenario of Man Power Planning due to the proposed Restructuring of SSAs and BAs in BSNL.

(3) Post reduction due to Restructuring, Consolidation of SSAs into BAs: We brought to the kind attention of the Director (Fin.) that due to merger of small SSAs and creation of Business Areas, so many DGM/AGM/CAO posts are reduced. We further explained to the Dir (Fin) that new GMs posts are creating by surrendering DGM and AGM posts. We strongly protested against the move of the BSNL Management by reduction of DGM/AGM/CAO posts which will drastically affect the promotional avenues of the Young Executives.

We requested on the basis of the revenue of the SSAs in the Category 1,2,3 BAs, sufficient numbers of DGM/AGM/CAO posts has to be created without any additional expenditure since more number of eligible Executives waiting for their due promotions.

We expressed our serious concern regarding the reduction of DGM (F) Posts to CAOs in the Category 2 Business Areas and we demanded DGM (Accs & Budg) should be posted in the category 2 BAs instead of CAOs.

After patient hearing, Director (Fin) assured to discuss our suggestions and views with the CMD and Director (HR).

<<<Click here for the order>>>

28.08.2020 GS writes to the CMD BSNL for the immediate issuance of promotion orders in all the disciplines/grades by giving one time relaxation in the qualifying service, wherever required for those who are drawing the higher scales, to manage the acute shortage in the Field Units/Administrative Offices of BSNL so as to maintain the vast Telecom Network, OFC, Telephone Exchanges, Administrative Offices etc., in an efficient manner......

GS further mentioned that all the Executives are expected that due promotions will be given during the implementation of the VRS, but even after 07 months nothing is moving in the Pers. Branch and making the situation very worst. There is a huge stagnation in promotion among different wings.

Most of the Executives are drawing Two to Four Stages higher Scales than their Substantive Scale/Grade but waiting for their Regular Promotions from years together. Since the Executives are already working/ drawing in the higher scales, promotion is not going to make any financial implication either to BSNL or DoT. The regular promotion orders can be issued from among the Executives working in higher scales, before the implementation of the Cadre Restructuring in BSNL.

Any Look-after arrangement is a stop-gap arrangement and should not be continued for the months/years together. We strongly oppose any look-after arrangement in higher grade but we demand immediate promotions on ‘Regular Basis’. If immediate steps are not taken, Services will be severely affected since the Executives are reluctant to take higher responsibilities on short-term/temporary/look-after basis and the Management should not discourage the Executives.       <<<Click here for GS letter>>>

Dear Friends!

It is very surprising to note that so many claimants are there for the recently released outstanding SAB payments from Sept, 2019 to Jan, 2020 and it is very ridiculous to see that mud sliding and Website war is going on even after the completion of the 2nd MV in some Association's sites, which is not a healthy trend for the interest and Welfare of the BSNL Executives and BSNL. We, on behalf of AIBSNLEA wish to inform you all that AIBSNLEA is the only Association taken up the issue with the BSNL Management continuously, by writing letters and persuasion with CMD BSNL, Director (Finance), Director (HR) & Sr.GM (CBB) Corporate Office from time to time and due to consistent and dedicated efforts of AIBSNLEA, the outstanding SAB benefits has been finally released. Please go-through the AIBSNLEA CHQ website for the letters written and issues taken up with the BSNL Management in this regards.

Comrades! Also see our AIBSNLEA CHQ Website write-ups dated 11.06.2020,  10.06.2020  &  04.06.2020 and so on... meetings with CMD BSNL, Director (HR) & Director (Finance) which is the documentary proof for efforts taken by AIBSNLEA.......Comrades! Truth is Always Truth.

 

Ground & field work always speaks the truth but those who are running the Association through only WhatsApp & Website claiming for the settlement of the issue. Reality & the Truth has come to the Light now.

AIBSNLEA strongly believes that the “Actual Fight & Action at the Ground level is the only solution to this Leg Pulling approach".

 

Dear Friends! From the above, you can very well understand that AIBSNLEA is the only Association always voice fiercely raising the Legitimate and Genuine Demands of all the Executives before the Management and continuously pursuing with the Management without seeing any Cadre, Caste & Creed.

AIBSNLEA always believes that 'Actions Speak Louder than the Words'.

 

AIBSNLEA respect the verdict of the majority of the Executives. At the same time, we fervently appeal to the Majority Recognized representative Association and the Support Association, instead of fighting with each other through Website, please come forward to fight unitedly for the settlement of the long pending HR issues and to safe guard the interests and legitimate rights of all the BSNL Employees.

1) Special Insurance Coverage for the BSNL employees who are maintaining essential Telecom Services throughout India against COVID-19 and Financial Assistance/Compensation to the bereaved family members of BSNL Employees, who expired due to Covid-19: We requested the CMD BSNL for the immediate extension of the Special Insurance Coverage of Rs.50 lakh to the BSNL employees who are maintaining essential Telecom Services throughout India against COVID-19 as suggested by AIBSNLEA during the month of April 2020 and we also impressed upon the CMD BSNL that due to non-payment of Medical claim reimbursement bills for indoor treatment to the Hospitals, our Executives and Non-Executives are being facing problems for admission in the Approved Hospitals for cashless treatment for Corona as well as other treatments.

CMD BSNL mentioned that due to heavy financial crunch in BSNL, BSNL Management is not in a position to extend the Special Insurance Coverage to the BSNL Employees. However, CMD mentioned that as per the suggestions of AIBSNLEA, BSNL Management has already written to DoT during the month of May,2020 itself for the extension of Financial support to BSNL so as to pay the Compensation to the bereaved family members of BSNL Employees.

(2) Fixing the Time Line for Monthly Salary disbursement: We requested the CMD BSNL to fix the time line for the disbursement of monthly salary on the last working day of the concerned month since the Net Salary expenditure is estimated around Rs.425 Cr and BSNL can very well manage the Net Salary Monthly expenditure from the monthly collection of around Rs.1350 Cr. CMD mentioned that now only Sovereign Guarantee approval has received from DoT and BSNL Management is proposed to release the Bonds before the end of September' 2020, then only our commitments towards Bank etc., will be reduced and opined that after this process only BSNL Management may be in a position to pay the monthly salary in time.

We requested the CMD to release at least August, 2020 salary in the last week of August 2020 due to the “Onam” Festival. CMD mentioned that we are not having sufficient funds for the disbursement of August Salary since July salary was paid on 20th August, 2020.

We have obtained the moratorium for Bank Loan/Interest also for 6 months during Covid-19 which is due to be paid during the month of Sept., 2020. Further, BSNL has received the approval for Sovereign Guarantee and BSNL Management is proposing to issue the Bonds up to the last week of Sept., 2020.

AIBSNLEA has taken up this issue continuously for so many years and finally there is a ray of hope that is we are seeing the light at the end of the Tunnel since we are expecting the fruitful results shortly for our consistent and sincere efforts.

 

(3) Consideration of request transfers in the Cadre of Accounts Personnel: We requested Director (Fin) to consider the request transfers in the Cadre of AOs and CAOs since they have already completed more than 30 months service in the present Circle and requested for transfer to their Home Circles to join with their family. We also impressed upon the Director (Fin) that our Accounts Personnel are facing so much problems due to Covid-19 in other than their Home Circles and further requested to consider the transfer requests on Humanitarian Grounds. Director (Fin) immediately discussed over phone with PGM (Pers) to process the transfer requests on priority basis including the requests received from Accounts Personnel of BSNL Corporate Office. PGM (Pers) replied that the cases are processed and order will be issued shortly after getting necessary approval.

(4) Request for Withdrawal of letter issued on the  presumption of Telangana  Circle regarding  the wrong  Pay fixation done against first up-gradation under Executive Promotion Policy (EPP) for the JAOs of 1999 Batch by DGM Vigilance of CGMT, TS Circle: We impressed upon the Director (Fin) that the issue was discussed with  Dir(HR), DIR(Fin), PGM(Pers), Sr.GM(Estt),  GM(EF) and DGM (Pers) in detail several times with relevant orders/clarifications issued by the DoT, Pers & SEA Branch of BSNL CO, but even after a lapse of five months, the issue has not been resolved. To our surprise, TS Circle has revised the Pay fixation of Account Officers (JAOs 1999 batch) who are presently working in BSNL as well as who opted for BSNL VRS-2019 and wrongly ordered for recovery of Overpayment to the tune of Rs.7 Lakh to 12 Lakh and stall the regularization process (Pension & retirement benefits) of VRS optees in a biased and arbitrary manner with ulterior motive on the basis of frivolous complaint, which is against the Natural justice. We requested Director (Fin) to issue necessary directions to withdraw the arbitrary orders of reducing the Pay of aggrieved JAOs of 1999 batch. Director (Fin) immediately spoken to Director (HR) over phone and requested to resolve the issue on priority basis since the issue is pending at Pers branch for a petty long time. <<<Click here for GS letter reminder III >>>

In this regard, GS AIBSNLEA discussed with Director (HR) at 19.00 hrs. and requested to issue the necessary orders immediately. Director (HR) after discussing with PGM (Pers) over phone assured to issue the direction shortly.

AN  APPEAL  BY  AIBSNLEA

Dear Friends!

August 18th 2020, is the most crucial day for BSNL Executives’ career because this day decides who will represent the Executives of BSNL before Management, this day decides who will negotiate with the Management on behalf of all Executives, this day will decide who can take care of BSNL future/ Survival in view of the present Financial crunch of BSNL/Covid-19...etc., etc.... So friends, time/ opportunity to take crucial decisions will not come again and again....... So everybody must vote on 18th August 2020 without fail as the Vote is the most powerful weapon in Democracy...... So now you are going to vote ... To whom you are to vote? Please vote for AIBSNLEA at Sl. No. 1, why?

AIBSNLEA has always proved itself as an actuator in all drives of the legitimate demands of BSNL Executives.

AIBSNLEA believes in the ground work and not in the mere pump and show on bandwagons. Fight can’t be win by standing on bandwagons, we believes that it is only the ground work with full of sweat and blood flow which brings outcomes.

Fights can’t be won by mischievous/malicious/fake propaganda on WhatsApp etc., without doing any ground work. AIBSNLEA always believes that actions speak louder than the words.

AIBSNLEA believes that there is never just one thing that leads to success for anyone, feel it always a combination of passion, dedication, hard work, and being in the right place at the right time and AIBSNLEA success is known to everyone.

Despite the several negative forces running every nook and corner to derail the resolution of issues and doing all sort of propaganda to just achieve their sinister motives, AIBSNLEA strongly believes that the “Actual fighting/action at Ground level” is the only solution to this Leg-pulling approach by some overzealous/vested interest mongers/groups.

The roots of AIBSNLEA are nourished by the water of different rivers like Associations of all the Streams. This is the real strength of AIBSNLEA and it has no need to be proved before anyone.

Nobody can steal its sunshine glory because nobody can steal the aroma of flower. Now, this is the time to make the glory of AIBSNLEA more shining, make the power of

AIBSNLEA more intensified and time to say a big ‘NO’ to further Machiavellian moves of our opponents.

Every Executive should come forward to join Hands with AIBSNLEA for safe future of BSNL & its Executives as well.

PL. VOTE AT SL. NO. 1

15.08.2020SANKALP PATHRA OF SNEA - “The CAT is out of the BAG”

SNEA has conducted a video conferencing during Janmashtami in which our Ex-Dir HR & Ex-Executive Director have participated. During the course of the interaction, they have expressed certain remarks and finally appreciated the role of SNEA in supporting the Decisions of Management.

The Salient comments of Ex-Executive Director who was the chairman of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy committee are:

The JTO to DE/AGM & JAO to CAO are interchangeable under the proposed CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and SNEA played a vital role in arriving at this important conclusion.

This means instead of demanding for a Promotion from one cadre to higher cadre, the SNEA has simply surrendered our prestige and made JTO, SDE, DE / JAO, AO, CAO as Equal. This means “Dilution of cadre”.

The Salient features of the interactions with Ex-DIR-HR are:

All the Old guards have gone and a virtual Heart Transplantation is done on BSNL -- that means the SNEA had a big role in removing the old Heart.

SNEA is the Charioteer and the GMs of BSNL CO are in the Rath during the process of finalization of CPSU cadre Hierarchy and the SNEA has literally made a “Trade off” -- Means What?

Before the Board Meeting at Hyderabad the Ex-DIR-HR herself felt that CPSU Cadre Hierarchy is not suitable for a company like BSNL- that is why AIBSNLEA  demanded and got the Mega14000 Promotion  in all the Streams before the implementation of CPSU CH(i.e.,  SDE to DGM level) which created the Mile stone in the History of DoT BSNL

The Management Trainees at various levels is a must for BSNL to grow and SNEA leaders have great vision on that- which clearly shows that SNEA is against the carrier progression of Young DRs.

The Strike Era of Trade Unions has gone and only a negotiation can make some settlement possible which SNEA has understood well --- that means all their (SNEA) Strike Threat is only on paper.

                                                                                                                            

From the above video conferencing, it is very clear that SNEA is not depending on what they have done during the  past three and half  years  and doubted about their victory in the 2nd MVP since they have not achieved anything for the past three and half years and miserably failed.

If SNEA is try to get more Votes from the Executives through this appreciation made by the Ex Executive Director Shri M.M. Khan, why they opposed the recommendation of Khan Committee report and derailed the CPSU CH process for the past 3 and half years.

AIBSNLEA feel this is highly unethical on the part of such highly placed officers, although retired, to praise publically about one Association. During this 2nd MVP Period they should have avoided attending such meetings. If at all required to attend and address such meeting, they should mention about all the Associations Particularly the role of AIBSNLEA. AIBSNLEA strongly condemned the unethical and illegal Act of respectable Ex-Director (HR) & Executive Director of BSNL Board for supporting SNEA through Video Conferencing for the cheap publicity of SNEA in the forthcoming 2nd MVP. It clearly shows that SNEA is smelling the defeat, now trying to influence the Executives in their favour in this unethical way.

 By attempting to rope in the votes of Executives, the SNEA masterminded something but finally landed in a misadventure by which they have caught hold of the Tiger’s Tail and this will be a permanent SCAR on the image of SNEA, which boasted itself as warriors of Trade Union Movement. Not only the self respect of thousands of Executives has been pledged by SNEA at the feet of the Management but also they have made a GROSS VIOLATION OF STIPULATED CODE OF CONDUCT RULES FOR AN ELECTION. The whole episode now identifies the True Colours of SNEA.

THE WHOLE 2nd MVP PROCESS HAS BEEN MADE AS  A MOCKERY OF DEMOCRACY BY SNEA.  At least now, our Executives must Re orient their thought and mind about SNEA. Come out openly and show them the Door. If it is not NOW then it will be NEVER.

Hence, We fervently appeal all the Executives don’t get confused by this type of unethical Video display and  it is the time to introspect, think over, Decide & Follow Your Heart and cast your Valuable Vote in favour of AIBSNLEA  at   SL. No 1

and make AIBSNLEA as No 1 Association to safeguard the interest of BSNL Executives & save the BSNL.

 

AIBSNLEA  ZINDABAD!    BSNL ZINDABAD!

AIBSNLEA has the Great Leadership with deep Trade Union Experience, Hard Bargainer & Bold Team at CHQ along with great experienced Chairman & Advisers etc.

AIBSNLEA deeply involved at all levels in finding out ways and means for all out growth and maximization of Revenue of BSNL which gives us our daily bread and butter. 

AIBSNLEA‘s magnificent struggle and its achievements has paved the way for the settlement of the long pending HR issues of BSNL Executives and has proved its strength and importance of AIBSNLEA  before the Management.
