01.04.2014:Report of 1st Circle Executive Committee (CEC) meeting of AIBSNLEA Odisha Circle held on 23.03.2014 at Seminar Hall, RTTC, Bhubaneswar: The first Circle Executive Committee (CEC) meeting of AIBSNLEA Odisha Circle was held on 23.03.2014 at seminar hall of RTTC  Bhubaneswar in a grand manner under the president ship of Com KN Sahoo.  After hoisting the Association flag by the circle president, all the comrades have assembled in the hall. The meeting was attended by Circle Office Bearers, CWC Member, Branch Presidents and Secretaries of Odisha. Our dynamic and beloved leader Com BK Bhattacharjee  OS(East) CHQ, Com BD Nath  Ex Circle Secy  and  Com SK Jena  AGS CHQ also graced the occasion.

At the outset Com SC Pradhan Branch Secy Bhubaneswar welcomed all the participants. In his introductory speech the President  Com KN Sahoo stressed upon the increase of membership under do or die principle due to the forthcoming membership verification. He cited some burning issues to be debated in the CEC.   

Then all the branch secretaries put forth their reports. Com RK Panda Circle Secy Odisha replied to the queries asked by all Branch Secretaries as well as other members. He placed Circle Secy's report in the house regarding various activities done in last six months. In his report he stressed the various HR issues solved at circle level, betterment of services and procurement of stores in Odisha circle. The report of Circle Secy was passed by the house. Com NP Das Finance Secy submitted audited finance report and it was passed in the house. He requested all Branch Secretaries to ensure collection of subscription for CHQ and Circle quota in time.  Com BD Nath Ex Circle Secy in his speech elaborated the role of our association in the development of BSNL. Com BK Bhhatacharjee OS(East) in his speech  elaborated the developments at CHQ level along with the importance of increasing the membership of our association. Com SK Jena AGS CHQ in his speech gave importance to hold seminars and workshops for viability of BSNL. The seminar hall was full-packed by the office bearers and members of different branches of Odisha Circle. The following resolutions  are passed in the CEC. RESOLUTIONS OF CEC:

1. The proposed new promotion policy is not accepted by the staff.

2. In a recent letter no.WLF/8-36/2013 dtd 2.9.2014, the CGM, Odisha has circulated that a BSNL employee can reimburse the medical claim of his dependant parents if he/she is the only son/daughter of his/her parents and the parents reside with them at the same home where the employee resides. The circular seems to be irrelevant. Let the case be clarified by the Corporate Office.

3. Pending DPC's in Corporate Office: It is requested to expedite the pending DPC's in respect of all disciplines and to fill up all the vacancies.

 4. Immediate preparation of Gradation List of 2010 JAO Batch.

5. 30% superannuation benefits for Direct Recruit BSNL employees.

6. Due to the shortage of DE/CAO all out circle and tenure transfer order should be cancelled.

7. Guidelines for IQ Reservations should be clarified:-

So many irregularities are being noticed in reservation of BSNL IQs throughout India.

a.       IQs are normally not allotted to common employees. Some IQs remain permanently reserved for some higher officers.

b.      If at all allotted to common employees any time, the same is cancelled when demanded by higher officers.

c.       IQs are found allotted in the name of higher officers, but actually occupied by others who are not related  to the him.

d.      There is no provision of collecting advance payment for IQ reservation. As a result, some unscrupulous officers book the IQ in advance but do not turn up to stay in such IQs. In many cases, they even do not cancel their requisition and as a result the IQ remains vaccant . Thus the other aspirant is deprived of staying in the IQ and there is a financial loss to BSNL.

e.      In some cases people are staying in IQs for unlimited periods.

In view of above  the detailed guidelines of IQ reservation may please be circulated.
