Notification of MSRRs 2023:

As the matter of MSRR has already been taken up by the Forum of Associations of BSNL comprising AIBSNLEA/AIGETOA/SNEA/SEWA/TOA, so much discussion was not there on it and the forum would take up this further.

Posting of 45 officers in JAG grade to BSNL from DOT:

AIBSNLEA shared our concern in the posting of the 45 officers in JAG grade to BSNL from DOT. As per the DOT letter No 12-2/2022-STG-I-Part (2) dated 31.12.2023, it is learned that 82 officers are promoted in JAG of ITS Group “A” by DOT and out of them 45 officers are deputed in BSNL out of which 22 officers were recruited in DOT era in recruitment years 1991 to 1997 as JTO similar to many other officers recruited by DOT and subsequently absorbed in BSNL. At the time absorption in BSNL all have been offered to opt for BSNL by DOT/BSNL Management, but they denied to take absorption in BSNL and opted DOT. Now these officers are promoted as regular JAG and posted in BSNL. We also shared that this Association is going on receiving grievances from our senior executives on this posting that though the absorbed employees are still working in the AGM grade only. AIBSNLEA further requested to consider the posting of these JAG officers in BSNL against DR DGM quota only and all the eligible AGMs/DGM(Adhoc) in BSNL should immediately be promoted to the grade of regular DGM since sufficient vacancies are available to avoid any heartburning and Humiliation of the existing executives.

Much delayed 3rd PRC for BSNL Employees:

AIBSNLEA requested to consider the much delayed and long-awaited 3rd PRC for the BSNL employees as BSNL has the EBIDTA positive for the last 2 consecutive years and reportedly BSNL may touch operating profit for this FY-2022-23. For the Last FY 2021-22, the BSNL total Income was Rs.19053 Crores and total expenditure (exclude interest & dep.) was of Rs.18109 Crore thus EBIDTA Positive by Rs.944 Crore but there was a Net Loss for the year by Rs.6982 Crores. This year BSNL received much financial packages from GOI as part of 2nd revival package including the Viability Gap funding of Rs.13789 Crores for operating the commercially unviable rural wireline operation done by BSNL. CMD BSNL replied that BSNL has to pay for the 2G spectrum licence fee to DOT may increase our expenditure for this FY 2023. DIR(HR), was also present on the meeting, has informed that the revenue from BSNL operations is not getting increased is a concern for BSNL. AIBSNLEA requested to consider immediately the 3rd PRC for BSNL employees since it is due from 01.01.2017 and more than 6 years have already been elapsed. CMD BSNL mentioned that we will look into it after the Financial Results of the FY 2022-23.  

Due to some urgent meeting called for CMD BSNL, we could not discuss on other pending points. These pending points will be discussed in the next Meeting with CMD BSNL.

10.01.2023     Today, the 10th Jan 2023, the GS Com Shaji V and the President Com Rajpal Sharma had an emergency meeting with CMD BSNL Shri PK Purwar ji and discussed the following matter

Long Pending AO - CAO Court Case at Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh regarding Status-quo on AO to CAO promotions (OA No 1435/ 2018 )

AIBSNLEA Shared our sincere gratitude to CMD BSNL for causing to arrange an eminent Sr. Advocate from the Hon. Supreme Court of India to deal the case at the CAT Chandigarh as promised by CMD to this Association. We further appraised CMD on the heartburn of the affected executives due to the case. When all pending promotions in all streams are almost completely released by BSNL management, but the long-lasting blockage of the Status-quo called by the Hon. CAT Chandigarh could not be vacated is a painful matter of real concern to AIBSNLEA. More discussions on the Case and related matters happened with CMD for around half an hour since the AIBSNLEA CHQ team and CS AIBSNLEA Punjab had been very much available in the CAT Chandigarh all along the arguments of the Case.  CMD BSNL had a patient hearing on all our points and appals.

Further, CMD BSNL shared that CMD is ready to have a conference call with the Lawyer and AIBSNLEA to update all the relevant points to vacate the stay and whatever be the amount to be paid for that BSNL will pay additionally to the Lawyer , if required. AIBSNLEA extended whole hearted thanks and regards to CMD for his very sincere approach for getting way to give the very long pending promotion orders for the executives in Accounts fraternity. CMD BSNL replied that he is also equally or more worried on this pending promotion.

We have categorically informed all concerned that without taking care of the existing eligible executives, any changes in existing MSRR will result into huge dissatisfaction. the Forum Leaders requested one and all of the concerned  committee to postpone the amendments in MSRR to 1st April 2023 and use the period for extending promotions to all eligible executives who have completed their residency period and addressing the concerns raised by us by way of mutual discussions. We again emphasized that none of the association are against meritocracy and we only are opposing the cutoff date and want a smooth transition to the next MSRR regime which can only be ensured by taking care of promotions of all eligible by extending the date of implementing the amendments in MSRR to 1st April 2023 and addressing the concerns raised by various stakeholders during this period.
Director HR assured to look into the concerns raised by all the associations including the matter of extending date of implementing the amendments to 1st April 2023.

We hereby assure one and all that associations are fully committed to protect the rights of all and will ensure that promotions of all eligible executives including those who will become eligible on 1st January 2023 are done. Further we are also committed to ensure that the concerns raised by various stakeholders are taken into consideration and resolved to the satisfaction of all.

19.12.2022    Meeting Of Forum Of BSNL Associations (AIBSNLEA , SNEA , AIGETOA & SEWA) With Hon . CMD BSNL On Draft MSRR 2023 on 19-12-2022 : Monday.
The meeting of leaders from Forum of Associations of BSNL was held with CMD BSNL. Discussion on apprehensions related to amendment of MSRR 2023 took place with CMD BSNL. CMD BSNL welcomed all the participants and informed about the view of management with respect to the proposed changes in the MSRR 2023 and his vision to move organization towards a meritocracy. CMD BSNL further told leaders to share the apprehensions on the proposed MSRR draft.
Forum leaders expressed that none of the association is against introduction of meritocracy but the change over should be gradual and should not be done in a haste. We are apprehensive that such hasty implementation will result into complete mess where all the future promotions shall be marred with litigations. We firmly shared our view that any changes in MSRR should only be done after executing the promotions of all eligible candidates who have completed their residency period in the grade and also those who are about to complete their residency on  01.01.2023. It is very clear that proposed MSRR 2023 completely blocks the career progression of already eligible executives who have already served in organization for so long and now when their promotion is due, we will be making them devoid of promotions by bringing a new MSRR. We informed CMD BSNL that this will not go down well with executives and in view of the DOPT provisions, even this will not stand the test of law. We expressed firmly that first management should promote all the eligible executives across various streams and grades to next grade before moving on to the new regime. We demanded promotions to all eligible executives including AGM Equivalent to DGM Equivalent grade in all streams (Telecom, Finance, Civil, Electrical, TF and Architecture), SDE to AGM Promotions including List 12 and 13 in Telecom Stream, AO to CAO in finance stream, SDE to EE in Civil stream, JTO to SDE SCF/LDCE in Telecom Stream. We also highlighted that committee should have representatives of all stakeholders and deliberations can be held thereafter once all eligible executives are promoted. Leaders also raised the pending promotions of SDE Reversal candidates, PWD Candidates and further promotions in JTO to SDE cadre. Leaders also highlighted the need for inclusion of management side representative belonging to the reserved category candidate as new MSRR will affect the careers of all executives. Leaders also highlighted that the cut-off date of implementing next MSRR should be 1st April instead of 1st January. Further leaders also told that provision should be there for meritorious candidates but before that eligible executives should be promoted to avoid any legal complications. Leaders all expressed that all existing eligible executives can be accommodated with slight tweaking, adjustment and creating extra posts because of 4G saturation, BBNL Merger and revision in restructuring norms.

CMD BSNL noted all points and told that he is open to all suggestions. He told us that after discussing with his team, he shall be reverting back on what best can be done. Further CMD BSNL assured that Calendar of DPCs and LICE/LDCE to be conducted in 2023 will be published in first week of January 2023 itself. The meeting ended on a positive note and we hope that our inputs and demands shall be taken care of before moving on to the next MSRR regime. Leaders extended their thanks to CMD BSNL and PGM SR and hoped that the inputs shall be considered in a positive and time-bound manner.

Dear Comrades , in the continuing fight against the very executive unfriendly Draft MSRRs 2023 , which will detrimentally affect the carrier up gradation of executives in BSNL , the Executives' Associations ( AIBSNLEA , SNEA , AIGETOA & SEWA) in BSNL formed a "Forum Of Associations in BSNL" .

After two three rounds of discussions among the "Forum Of Associations in BSNL" , today  the Forum leaders write to the CMD BSNL for " the immediate withholding of further action on the draft MSSR 2023 and execute regular promotions for all eligible executives those who will complete their residency on 01-01-2023 based on the existing MSRRs 2009 and thereafter start fresh deliberations on MSRRs 2023 by reconstituting the MSRR Committe with inclusion of representatives from all stake holders ( BSNL Executives & Management)...."

 

<<<Forum Letter to the CMD BSNL>>>

14.12.2022    GS and President met GM (Pers) and discussed on the progress of filing MA to vacate the “Status Quo”  called by the CAT Chandigarh on AO to CAO promotion in 2018 . GM ( Pers) informed that as per the request of AIBSNLEA , BSNL management already directed Haryana Circle to do so . AIBSNLEA extended sincere thanks for the same . We expect the MA will be filed by today or by tomorrow.

We requested to release all the pending individual request transfers . GM (Pers) replied that management is going on considering all the eligible transfers and pending if any will be released without delay .

On Draft MSRRs 2023 AIBSNLEA submitted our views :-

AIBSNLEA appreciate the efforts of BSNL Management to frame a New BSNL MSRRs viz BSNL MSRRs 2023.

Hurry and untimely introduction of BSNL MSRRs-2023 (Telecom Operation), having widely suspected favouritisms to a small group, may end up the whole promotion possibilities to AGM, DGM & higher levels through possible litigations based on the biased MSRRs

All Existing vacancies prior to the date of notification of new MSRR-2023 shall be filled up through existing MSRRs 2009 only.

Even after the notification of New MSRRs, the old MSRR shall only be valid for carrying out CPCs to be completed prior to the new MSRRs.

As per DOPT guidelines, the vacancy quota carried over from the previous VYs (SQ /DR)  shall not be diverted to any other quota , when new MSRR is deviced. New Vacancies falling after the notification of new MSRR only shall be used for SQ/LICE quotas.

BSNL MSRRs-2023 in all streams may be finalized and notified in a single go in line with BSNL MSRRs 2009 to avoid fresh litigations on the disproportion of things among different streams.

For the larger interest of BSNL, the draft BSNL MSRRs-2023 may kindly be kept aside until all CPCs in all streams are completed as on 01-01-2023 starting with AGM(T) to DGM(T) promotion orders as your kindness promised for the same on many occasions.

Career Progression of Able Executives in BSNL to the higher management levels viz GM/PGM/CGM shall be ensured. Which would attract efficient carrier aspirants to BSNL so that an officer joined in JTO & equivalent cadre can reach up to the Level of CGM.

According to the need of a Calendar Year, the DR quota may be diverted to internal quota, if needed to accommodate the extremely talented & experienced pool of officers in DM/AGM levels available with BSNL & to accommodate to AGM/DGM levels as a token of motivation to the officers who have performed extra ordinarily to BSNL but short of qualifying length of service.

The confusing Note 1 in page 8 of draft MSRRs-2023 may be deprecated for “ the eligibility for LICE to AGM/DGM Levels shall be E4/E5 respectively”

The benefit of one additional increment on post based promotion when the executives are in the current scale of the post is there in MSRRs2009 and is missing with the new draft MSRRs 2023 . It shall be restored .

Later GS and President met PGM(Establishment) and discussed on MSSRs 2023 and submitted the above views of AIBSNLEA  . Both GM(Pers) and PGM(Estt) had a patient hearing and had healthy interactions.

13.12.2022    BSNL CO ordered to enforce effects of linking of online attendance system with ERP from 01-01-2023. All Controlling officers are to submit the Online attendance of subordinates timely.

06.12.2022   GS writes to the CMD BSNL on the Hurry and untimely introduction of BSNL MSRRs-2023 (Telecom Operation), having widely suspected favoritism to a small group, may end up the whole promotion possibilities to AGM, DGM & higher levels through possible litigations based on the biased MSRRs. For the larger interest of BSNL, the draft BSNL MSRRs-2023 may kindly be kept aside until all CPCs in all streams are completed as on 01-01-2023 starting with AGM(T) to DGM(T) promotion orders .

Respected Sir, 

At the outset permit us to share our sincere regards and gratitude to your acumen for causing the smooth release of some of the long-awaited promotions in various streams viz Electrical, Architecture, Telecom Factory, CSS, Telecom Operations, etc. These Promotion orders caused a good sense of motivation and enthusiasm among the BSNL executives which would certainly contribute to better yielding in BSNL. We are damn sure that BSNL management is sincerely working on releasing all the pending promotion orders in all streams including that in the much-awaited AO to CAO , SDE(C) to EE(C) etc. cadres.

We are proud of you Sir that in the recent past BSNL has been awarded two back-to-back revival packages which helped BSNL to afloat with an authorized capital of Rs 1.5 Lack Crores from a mere Rs 40,000 Crores. We are extremely thankful and obliged to the Government of India and DOT for awarding life to our BSNL. A comfortable and balanced future is expected for BSNL after the revival packages, especially by inducting state-of-the-art Core switching /transmission equipment, 4G Technology, etc.

In spite of all, BSNL is still passing through a turbulent transition phase with many aspects viz Operation/HR integration of MTNL & BBNL, distress from BSNL Employees on Pending 3rd PRC, 30% Superannuation benefit to BSNL Recruited employees as per DPE guidelines, E2-E3 Standard pay scales to JTO/SDE Equivalent executives, Rs. 22820/- to be extended to all the LICE/DR JTOs of 2007 & 2008 Batches & DR JTO/JAO 2010 Batches, E1+5 increments to JTO (SRD) and all LICE /DR Post 2010 JAO/JTO Batches and PA cadre, reversion of 2007 LDCE SDE-JTO(2001 DR Batch), Scrapping of SDE Equivalent RRs for 7 Years as promotion period between JTO equivalent to SDE equivalent instead of 12 years and further 7 years for AGM equ Promotions, etc. in addition to multiples of  Court cases in relation to promotions of executives and other HR matters. However, this association has full faith in you Sir that you can manage all these odds effortlessly and turn around BSNL in the near future.

Now, we are constrained to draw your kind attention to the above-cited subject of the hurry and untimely introduction of BSNL MSRRs-2023 (Telecom Operation), having widely suspected favoritism to a small group. We request your kindness to intervene in the matter and direct the concerned officers in BSNL to have sufficient interactions for taking the views of all stakeholders. Some of the Paragraphs and Notes in the draft BSNL MSRRs-2023 (Telecom Operation) are on prima facie & generally perceived to compulsively attract litigations to end up the very purpose of the   BSNL MSRRs-2023 in the Courts of Law. From our past experience too, we feel that the proposed draft BSNL MSRRs-2023 (Telecom Operation) may be another bait to attract fresh litigators. BSNL MSRRs-2023 in all streams may be finalized and notified in a single go in line with BSNL MSRRs 2009 to avoid fresh litigations on the disproportion of things among different streams. Moreover, the issues on SDE(T) RR – 2022 have not been finalized and notified yet. Hence, in this turbulent transition phase of BSNL, for the better and larger interest of BSNL, the proposed draft BSNL MSRRs-2023 may kindly be directed to keep aside until healthy discussions will be completed with all the stakeholders on the MSRRs. We kindly request you to cause the completion of CPCs on all cadres in all streams, before going ahead with the proposed MSRRs 2023 , starting with the CPC for AGM(T) to DGM(T) as of 01-01-2023 .

 As per the revised sanctioned strength in the post-VRS restructuring, the internal quota for DGM(T) is 1116 and that of the DR DGM(T) is 120. The internal quota of DGM(T) is purely under the Seniority Quota as per MSRRs 2009 and it cannot be diverted to any other quota under any new MSRRs as this will turn off the promotion opportunity of the very rich experienced senior executives in BSNL who are waiting long for the last functional promotion of their career. For DGM(T) promotion against the available vacancies, a good number of AGM(T)s have already completed their 4 years of regular stay in AGM(T) cadre as of 29-06-2022 are eligible for DGM(T) promotion from 01-01-2023 in addition to many DGMT (Adhoc) officers . Hence, CPC for AGM(T) to DGM(T) for all the 1116 vacancies may kindly be ordered as of 01-01-2023. This will certainly cause subsequent CPCs for SDE(T) to AGM(T) for 1116 vacancies and CPCs for JTO (T) to SDE(T) for 1116 vacancies. The same is the merit for different cadres in other Streams too.

  We once again earnestly request your kindness to cause to issue necessary instructions to the concerned to complete the CPC for 1116 DGM(T) vacancies on 01-01-2023 and issue the promotion orders from AGM(T) to DGM(T). Further , we fervently request your kindness to cause to issue necessary instructions to the concerned to release all the other eligible promotion orders as on 01-01-2023 in all cadres of other streams also viz Finance, Civil, Electrical , TF , CSS , CSSS etc before the notification of the MSRRs 2023 , subsequent to the promotion orders from AGM(T) to DGM(T).

                

With Kind regards,

06.12.2022    Update on the Long-awaited AO to CAO Promotion:

BSNL management informed to AIBSNLEA CHQ that, understandably the Double Bench (DB) has been constituted in CAT Chandigarh. It is also informed that BSNL management is filing a fresh MA as per the request of this Association for the vacation of the “Status Quo” on AO to CAO promotion called by the CAT in 2018.

As we have reported multiple times through our website, upon the fair and persistent efforts of AIBSNLEA, BSNL management has been trying their level best to vacate the “Status Quo”. AIBSNLEA is very much thankful for the efforts of BSNL management. The vacation of “Status Quo “could not happen despite all out efforts of BSNL management upon the reason of court that the case is a DB matter.

Now, the DB is constituted in CAT Chandigarh and BSNL filing MA for early hearing also, we hope that the “Status Quo” will be vacated by the Hon CAT Chandigarh. This will pave the way to the release of the Long-awaited AO to CAO Promotion orders as soon as the “Status Quo” is vacated. AIBSNLEA CHQ is closely monitoring and pursuing the case.

01.12.2022    GS writes to the CMD BSNL with Copy to the new DIR (Finance) Shri. Rajiv Kumar ji also for his kind information and intervention to resolve the long pending  grant of 5 (five) advance increments on the minimum revised E1 IDA Pay Scale of Rs.16400-40500 to the SRD JTOs & DR Specially abled 2010 batch, LDCE JAOs 2013 batch DR JAOs of 2015, 2018 batch, DR JTO of 2017 batch LDCE JAOs of 2016 batches and LDCE JTOs of 2016 & 2017 batches .

--- due to the consistent effort of AIBSNLEA the matter had been considered and approved by the MC of the BSNL Board. But the approval of the BSNL Board is kept pending for the past so many years.....

.....The difference in basic pay of DR  JTOs of 2010  (Specially abled), DR JAOs of 2015, 2018, DR JTOs of 2017, LDCE JAO 2016 and LDCE JTO 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 facingto the  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.......
