 After a warm welcome by the host Circle members and silence for a minute in the memory of the departed comrades, there were welcome addresses by the Circle Secretaries of host Circles Tamilnadu Telecom and Chennai Telephones. The members then introduced themselves to the house. The CWC Meet  resumed at Hotel Chandra Park, Egmore, Chennai after the Open Session.

OPEN SESSION : The Open Session on the occasion of CWC Meet commenced at 12.10 hrs with lightning of sacred lamp by Shri Kuldeep Goyal, CMD, BSNL and other dignarities. After the prayer "Itni Shakti humen Dena Data ..." the host Circle Comrades from Tamilnadu and Chennai warmly welcomed the Chief Guest Shri Kuldeep Goyal, CMD, BSNL, Guests of honour Shri S.R.Kapoor, ED (Finance), CGMs Tamilnadu Circle, Chennai Telephones, STR and STP, GM (SR), BSNL CO, Special Guest Com G.L.Jogi, GS (SNEA), Com K.Sathyanarayana, President and Com Prahlad Rai, GS with Garlands, Shawls and Mementos.

In the welcome address, Com K.Sathyanarayana, President raised the issues of revision of perks and raising the IDA from 68.8% to 78.2% in calculation of new IDA pay scales as per the DPE OM dated 02.04.2009.

In his welcome address, Com N.Verapandian, CS, Tamilnadu Circle expressed his gratitude to the CHQ for giving Tamilnadu Circle and Chennai Telephones a chance to organise this CWC. He unfolded many facts about the historical city Chennai. He welcomed all the guests and members attending the CWC Meet from all the nook and corners of the country.

Key Note delivered by Com Prahlad Rai, GS contained all the important issues related to organisational structure, viability of BSNL and HR issues related to all the constituent cadres like BSNLMS RRs, MTRR, change of designation with time bound promotion, one time placement of SDEs to Sr. SDE grade, issues related to pensioners, issues related to Civil/Electrical/TF/Arch,AD OL pay revision issue, issues related to various DPCs, TES  Gr. B Seniority list irregularities, withdrawal of ACP benefits of JTOs/SDE(C/E) and PAs/PSs (CSS), revision of perks and imlementation of DPE OM dated 02.04.2009, pay anomalies of JTO 2005 batch, EPF statements of BSNL recruitees, JTO officiating regularisation, creation of PPS posts in field units etc.

GS also discussed the issue of membership verification. He expressed that AIBSNLEA is in the favour of single Association but membership verification should take place after completion of ITS officers' absorption in BSNL. He hoped that CMD, BSNL will try his best for keeping his words regarding completion of ITS absorption process by the end of this calendar year. GS mentioned that this association is not opposed to any cadre but demands ending the deemed deputation/deputation in BSNL. The absorption process can not be lingered on endlessly. BSNL can not rise without having its own managers at the highest posts instead of those on deputation, who do not feel belongingness towards BSNL.

GS opposed the Govt's move to disinvest BSNL by the way of listing it as it will not help BSNL to grow in any way. Only motivated workforce and committed managers can help in it. GS also discussed regarding poor after sales service in broadband connections, problems at Call Centres and Revenue Collection Centres, illogical tax and interests paid by BSNL, instructions to Govt. departments etc. to take telecom facilities from BSNL only, strengthening of marketing and sales units in BSNL for proper growth of BSNL with respect to market share and revenue.

Shri Shakeel Ahmed, GM (SR) in his brief address mentioned that he is fully aware of all the issues raised by the association and ready to discuss any of them at any time. Regarding ITS absorption issue, he mentioned that executives should concentrate for the growth of BSNL instead of going for cadre wars.  He assured for his full cooperation for resolving the issues wherever possible.

Shri D. Varadarajan, CGM Tamilnadu Circle, Shri A. Subramanian, CGM, Chennai Telephones, Shri S.Raghavan, CGM Mtce., STR, Chennai and Shri P.R.Ananthan, CGM Project, STP, Chennai also addressed the Open Session and appealed to provide quality service with the available resources to our customers.

Com G.L.Jogi, GS, SNEA in his address thanked the Association for inviting him to the CWC Meet. He spoke about various factors affecting growth and viability of BSNL. He stated that due to intervention by the ministry the market share of BSNL has gone down steeply whereas the market share of private players has been increased as they were free to procure equipment and enhance their capability at a time when BSNL was not having any equipment for expansion of its cellular services. The equipment orders could be placed only after united strike by Executives and Non-executives in July 2007. The non-absorption of ITS officers is also reason for declining market share as no development activities are taking place in full swing.

Shri S.R.Kapoor, ED (Fin) in his address appreciated the Association  for its efforts for growth of BSNL as well as for cadre issues of the Executives. He thanked for giving him the opportunity to attend the Meet.

Shri Kuldeep Goyal, CMD BSNL in his address  expressed his deep concern over the decline of BSNL's profit. He appealed all the Executives to work for the growth of BSNL only for one year and forget rest of the issues. He stressed over more revenue generation from mobile services including Value Added Services by adopting better market and sales strategy as per the market requirements. He apprised about the efforts made for capturing enterprise business. He stressed over the need of BSNL becoming a complete and end to end solution provider for all the services provided by it to the customers rather than remaining a telecom company only. He told about capturing a business of 9000 crores from the Defence Ministry during next 3 years.

CMD mentioned that there is no more business in voice transmission now. Business is to be fetched from data and video traffic. Mobile TV especially on 3G is one of the examples of it. In his opinion tower sharing, better BTS maintenance, reduction on security expenditures by reviewing those, portability to higher ARPU customers etc. are the other ways to increase profit. He appealed to increase our strength in rural area as 60% of the growth is in rural area. CMD described 3G as our strength and encash it by proper marketing and promotions. He mentioned that in near future WiMAX is being launched to provide broadband in a radius of 15 kms without copper wire. CDR and ERP are also going to benefit BSNL.

Regarding ITS absorption issue, CMD told that efforts are being to resolve the issue early. On not allowing BSNL for procurement from Huwai, CMD told that the matter is being taken up with the Govt. He expressed his opinion in favour of listing of BSNL but with the consent of Executives.

In his vote of thanks,  Com P. Jones Samuel Raj, CS, Chennai Telephone Circle thanked the Chief Guest, the guests of honour, special guest, members and Executives present in the open session on behalf of host Circle branches. The meeting hall of Hotel New Woodlands was jam packed.
