Association, New Delhi Bank:

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 .
At the outset permit us to share
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
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.
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 .
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
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).
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
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.

(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

GS and President met GM (Pers) Sh S.N
ji and extended sincere regards and gratitude for the
smooth release of the long-awaited SDE(T) to AGM(T)
promotion orders on 16-11-2022 itself by taking extra
pain for the preparations till late at night on the day.
GM (Pers) shared the contentment of BSNL Management on
the release of pending eligible promotions to various
streams viz Electrical, Architecture, Telecom Factory,
CSS, Telecom Operations, etc, and told that BSNL
Management is sincerely working on further for the early
release of pending promotions in all other streams too.
Jt.GM (Pers) Sh.O N Tiwari ji was also present at the
our understanding, CPC for 2080 Vacancies falling as of
31-12-2021 in Telecom Engineering wing, was conducted
for SDE (T) to AGM(T) (GE-1724, SC – 198 & ST -158).
Promotion Orders issued for 1891; keeping reserved for
LDCE Reversion cases @ 100; Sealed covers: @30; Un-assed
matters: @20; Retired SDEs against the VY: @ 40. Hence,
as of now, only 40 AGM (T) vacancies are available.
AIBSNLEA submitted the real heart-burning situations
going on with Executives in Finance Stream waiting for
their eligible CAO promotion right from 2018 onwards. We
requested to file a fresh MA urgently for the early
vacation of the status quo called by the Hon’ble CAT
Chandigarh. GM (Pers) assured us to file the MA for the
early vacate of the stay. The unfortunate matter of
vacating the status quo is that the Status quo was
called by the Double Bench (DB) of CAT Chandigarh and
the case has not been taken up on the reason of the
unavailability of DB as Member (Admin) at the CAT
Chandigarh is vacant for long. AIBSNLEA CHQ is in
constant discussion with the Petitioners too of the
court case and by honouring their feelings, AIBSNLEA
requested the officers/petitioners to cooperate for the
vacation of status quo for the larger interest of all
the executives in the Accounts fraternity/stream who are
all waiting for long to their much awaited CAO
promotions. The Petitioners agreed and supported the
request of AIBSNLEA not to oppose the attempt of BSNL to
vacate the Stay. Though DB is not available now at CAT
Chandigarh, AIBSNLEA hopes for a better outcome as both
sides agreed to vacate the stay.
the promotions in Civil, CSSS (Central Secretariat
Stenographers Service; PA/PA/PPS/Sr PPS), etc BSNL
Management is working on it but till the vacation of the
court case in the Civil stream CPC cannot be carried
out. AIBSNLEA requested early action for vacating the
court intervention. GM (Pers) informed the efforts are
Draft MSRRs 2023 (Telecom Operations):
AIBSNLEA requested sufficient discussions with all
concerned may be carried out before formulating and
notifying the new MSRRs 2023 for all Streams in BSNL.
New MSRRs may not be notified in a hurry. AIBSNLEA
suggested notifying MSRRs of all streams in one go for
the broad and better interest of BSNL to avoid possible
litigations. AIBSNLEA submitted that 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. SQ/New Vacancies falling after the notification
of new MSRR only shall be used for SQ/LICE quotas. Any
deviations from these conditions may attract fresh
litigations. We further submitted that the burning
issues concerned with SDE (T) RR 2022 are not settled
yet, hence this is not the right and safe time, in the
better service interest of BSNL, to take up the fresh
bigger RR (MSRRs-2023) in a hurry for notification. GM (Pers)
had a patient hearing and suggested to discuss the
matter with DIR(HR). AIBSNLEA shared that we will
furnish all our submissions on MSRR 2023 with the CMD
BSNL and DIR(HR), BSNL Board.
Further, AIBSNLEA discussed and requested to release all
the pending transfer requests of the Executives of
different Cadres at the earliest. GM (Pers) mentioned
that all the requests are being considered in a phased
