31.03.2010 : GS, AGS (HQ) met GM(Pers) and discussed-

(a) DPC from DE to DGM:- We expressed our serious resentment against non-issuance of promotion order from DE to DGM. Every month many DEs are retiring. GM(Pers) informed that the matter has been discussed with Member(S) DOT and he is of the opinion that BSNL should first take clearance from Jaipur CAT and if the clearance is not given appeal may be filed in Rajasthan High Court. Similarly, GM(Legal) BSNL has also given the opinion  that if BSNL issue promotion order without Jaipur CAT clearance, it will invite contempt of Court. Like this, he tried to convince that promotion order from DE to DGM cannot be issued in the present situation. We strongly opposed all these pleadings because there is no stay order is granted by JAIPUR CAT. But the BSNL Management with a biased attitude is withholding the promotion.  

(b) Regularisation of Adhoc DEs:- GM(Pers) mentioned that DOT instructions 162 SDEs whom seniority case is pending in Hon'ble  Supreme Court may be regularised, but as per our legal opinion they cannot be regularise and similar stand is taken by the Executive Associations. Hence, till the outcome of the Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgment regularisation may not be completed. Against this we contested and demanded that BSNL  Management should take immediate decision in this regard otherwise we will be forced to start organisational Action Programmes.

(c) DPC from SDE(T) to DE Adhoc:- GM(Pers) confirmed that in this regard case is listed for hearing in J&K High court on 2rd April 2010, Where he himself will be present.

After detail discussions on the above issued we expressed our serious resentment and categorically told that shortly we resort organisational Action Programmes against partition attitude of the BSNL Management.

31.03.2010: CGMT Rajasthan Circle contacted GS and discussed regarding Jaipur CAT case filed by some ITS Officers to get stay order against DGM DPC. He explained that he has given local officiating promotion to Des(ITS Officers) as DGM as it was being given earlier also. Hence he has only continued the local officiating promotion. Regarding regular promotee DEs, he mentioned that due non availability of ACRs and VCRs they could not be promoted and he is making the effort to complete the ACRS/VCRs and will issue the promotion order to DGM within a week's time.

Regarding Jaipur CAT case he clarified that he was not aware about the case pending in Jaipur CAT, because neither GM(Admn) Rajasthan Circle nor GM(Pers) apprised him about the pending case in Jaipur CAT. He only could learn about Jaipur CAT case from Director(HR) today when he discuss the matter. He immediately discuss the matter with GM(Admn) Rajasthan Circle and found that there is no stay order granted by Jaipur CAT against DGM DPC, but one interim direction is given for which yesterday only DOT/BSNL CO reply has been received in Circle Office and the same is today filed in Jaipur CAT. Hence on his part no manipulation/favouritism has been made because he was never brief the case by GM(Pers) BSNL CO. Which is affecting  All India DPC. He assured that he will not indulge in any favouritism. The case is listed for hearing in Jaipur CAT on 01.04.2010.

JAC pleaded that in case the ITS officers absorption issue is resolved & BSNL having its own Managers at policy making level will definitely make BSNL a vibrant organization.

12.03.10 : Joint Forum of Unions / Associations of Non-Executives and Executives strongly protest the arbitrary recommendations of Shri Sam Pitroda Committee for BSNL revival and its implementation. JF issues NOTICE to hold Lunch Hour Mass Demonstration on Monday 15.03.10 at BSNL Corporate Office, Circle and SSA Headquarters. All the CHQ Office Bearers / CSs / Branch Secretaries are requested to make it a grand success. Click here for NOTICE

12.03.2010: GS contacted concerned Authorities of DOT about implementation of Shri Sam Pitroda committee recommendations on BSNL revival : It is understood that the DOT has raised serious concern over suggestions made by the Committee for changes in BSNL. The recommendations include disinvestment of 30% Govt. equity in BSNL, reducing the employees by a third, canceling the telecom equipment order for 93 million GSM line and replacing it with network outsourcing deals.

The report by Pitroda offers a long term solution. It does not address the existing issues and the concerns that may arise while following the long term plan. If BSNL shifts to an outsourcing model for procuring equipment, as suggested by the report, it would take 8-10 months and all this while, it would not be able to add capacity. This would further push the company down in the Indian mobile market. The officer said, they were not involved while preparing the report on BSNL and committee had not taken any ground work to learn about the functioning of BSNL and the unions / Associations. The finance Ministry is not ready to provide support to a VRS scheme of BSNL. If money does not come from the Finance Ministry as a special package, it cannot implement the scheme at all. The proposals, though cleared by the BSNL Board, would be difficult to implement without the support of the Union/Associations.
