It is the first time in the History of BSNL after its formation that the 27 DGM Regular Promotions orders in the Telecom Operation steam and 123DGM (Finance) Regular Promotion are issued. With the untiring effort of AIBSNLEA, the BSNLMSRR-2009 came into existence and  on completion of required STS  ( 4 Year )service  these regular promotion  orders have been issued in Telecom Finance and Operation Streams. It is a great breakthrough in the Promotional avenues of BSNL executives. Though these DGMs have less span of their remaining service period, hence may not inspire GM Promotion But Young JTOs/JAOs may inspire their Promotion to the SAG/HAG level in future. Let us continue our efforts for timely CPCs.

Chaubey,  ED (CN) to discuss the issues of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and E2/E3 equivalent IDA pay scales for JTO/SDE and Equivalent Executives. We pleaded to implement that the promotional avenues assured at the time of absorption to Executives i.e. the non post based time bound upgradation upto SG-JAG level and post based promotion after SAG and above levels. We pleaded every time bound promotion should be functional with the change of designation to that grade and to provide further fast track promotions to fill up higher SAG/JAG level posts some mechanism can be decided to reduce time bound promotions from 5 to 3 years on each upgradation.
Chairman committee after detailed discussion advised to submit a common draft proposal from all Executives' Associations within a week time so that after 15 days, Committee Meeting can further be arranged.
Similarly on the issue of Standard IDA pay scale of E2-E3 for JTO/SDE Equivalent Executives a plan brought to the notice of the committee that already DPE sent a proposal on the basis of Group of Secretaries recommendations that in two PSUs  under one Administrative Ministry, there should not be two different pay scales upto E8 level to avoid heart burning.
On this issue Chairman advised to GM (Estt.) to take up the matter with the competent authority for further necessary action. We pleaded that an immediate action has to be taken on the E2/E3 pay scale by the Committee as per its mandate and DPE proposal can separately be dealt.
Chairman assured to discuss the matter in the next Committee meeting after one month after taking the view of the competent authority.

12.11.2014:   GS discussed with GM(Rectt.), BSNL Corporate Office regarding notification of LDCE form JTO(T) to SDE(T).

12.11.2014: GS attended and addressed the felicitation function of Sh A.K.Garg Ex CMD MTNL on his superannuation organized by Retired Telecom Officers Welfare Associations (RTOWA) MTNL at New Delhi.
12.11.2014: GS and AGS AIRBSNLEWA Com Amit Gupta met DDG(Estt) DoT Sh R K Misra and discussed 78.2% IDA fixation for pensioners issue. The discussion lasted for more than 2 hours. All the points related to the issue has been discussed. It is understood that our letter dated 29-10-2014 addressed to Secy(T) has been carefully studied by DoT officers but they have decided to ignore the points raised and pursue further in the line of the DoE's memo. Accordingly the cabinet note has already been prepared and being processed accordingly for inter ministerial circulation and comments as per the procedure. Our letter is being ignored as we are the lone voice against such injustice of undue pension curtailment. DoT is in impression that everybody is in hurry to get the present benefit for which they are ready to sacrifice the due pension arrears. We strongly protested to such views and pointed out that even the Supreme Court has given several judgments against curtailment
 of pension and pensionary benefits. DDG(Estt) appreciated our view and mentioned that he has to abide by the DoE's memo for the present. We mentined that in that case the only option for the pensioners  are to go to court only . But the effected pensioners are more than one lakh in which many family pensioners are also there. It will never be possible for each one of them to go to court, as a result ultimately majority of pensioners will face deprivation only. We requested DDG(Estt) to do justice to this huge number of pensioners and not to deprive them by curtailing the pension arrears and pensionary benefits like Gratuity ,leave encashment and commutation which are also part of pension. He assured to consider.

CMD enquired whether DoT will agree to it. We requested him to send the proposal to DoT. CMD agreed to examine.

GM (EST) mentioned that 30% superannuation benefit matter is pending with ED(Finance) committee. Similarly the issues like CPSU cadre hierarchy, E2/E3 pay scale for JTO/SDE equivalent cadres will be discussed in the committee on 14-11-2014.

11.11.2014: GS, AGS(HQ) attended the meeting on Switching over to the on line examination pattern for BSNL internal and external examination arranged by GM (Recruitment) BSNL CO to discuss with all the BSNL unions and Associations. We welcome the move to switch over the on line examination pattern and suggested that examination fee from internal candidates should not be there, the number of attempts should be unlimited and the age limit should be 55 years instead of 50 years. We pleaded that LDCE from JTO (T) to SDE(T), LICE of JAOs should be immediately conducted since the syllabus have been approved and the vacancies are clarified.

GM (Pers) mentioned that some genuine medical ground cases and the cases recommended by the CGMs have been considered but all the vacancies cannot be filled up by local SDEs on promotion ignoring other circle shortages. We further pleaded on DGM promotion many vacancies are taking place which will create shortage in the circles. He assured to look into the matter.

c)  Restructuring of AD(OL) Cadre: We expressed our concern against delay in restructuring of AD (OL) cadre even after the committee report submitted long before.

05.11.2014: Status of JAO to AO Promotion: GS discussed with GM(FP) regarding JAO to AO promotion. GM(FP) mentioned that CPC minutes are pending with CLO for clearance. SEA Cell has already clarified the queries made by CLO but CLO is telling that he is preparing some questioners to clarify further, which will be send to SEA Cell by next week. We requested that the requirement of CLO to fill up 214 SC quota AO Posts and 180 ST quota AO posts may be filled up by expediting the CPC.

GM(FP) clarified that in this CPC all eligible SC & ST quota JAO posts has been considered for promotion and to fill up 400 SC-ST quota posts, 2010  Batch JAOs were not eligible for promotion on 1st July 2013. To incorporate 2010 Batch JAOs (SC-ST quota), first their confirmation order are to be issued & after taking the approval of the Competent Authority to fill up AO vacancies upto 1st July 2014, CPC has to be initiated which may take another 4-5 months' time in completing CPC.

Hence, CLO is being requested to give clearance to the present CPC by transferring backlog SC-ST vacancies in next CPC, which may immediately be initiated. Moreover, it is learnt that the applicant in Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh in JAO to AO promotion court case has also served a legal notice to CMD BSNL & all concern against implementation of SC/ST roster on promotion inviolation of Court judgment. It may further complicate the issue. Hence, he was non-committal on JAO to AO promotion in near future.

CPC from CAO(A) to CAO(R)  left out Cases: We requested for early issuance of left out CAO(A) to CAO(R) promotions order. GM(FP) mentioned that about 100 CAOs(A)  VCRs are still awaited and on receipt of all these VCRs the promotion order will be issued.

05.11.2014: Status of TES Gr."B" Rule 206 Seniority case in Hon'ble Supreme Court.: The concerned CAs/SLPs, listed as Item No. 101 in the court No. 08 came up for hearing today as per the schedule but could not be heard completely because of paucity of time.
