05-01-2016:BSNL CO issued detail instructions to Circle Heads for conduction
of LICE for promotion to the post of JTO Telecom as per new JTO RR 2014 for
filling up vacancies up to 31/03/2016 under 50% quota. Letter <<<>>>
This is great chance for all TTAs in Maharashtra Circle as many of the
vacancies of JTOs are unfilled and number of eligible
candidates also are less than the vacancy position for some of vacancy
years and hence chances of their becoming JTOs are more as compared to eligible
candidates in other circles. All eligible comrades,
should concentrate on preparations of LICE with full devotion and dedication
for their bright future in BSNL and grab this opportunity of carrier
progression within BSNL.

05-01-2016: CHQ NEWS Director CM
BSNL CO writes DO letter to all CGMs for signing all GSM AMCs and send
compliance. Letter <<<>>>
We all are aware about the quality of
work done by these vendors under AMC agreement and the poor quality of works
and grabbing at least 75% of total AMC amount is one of the funda
adopted by vendors as there is no awareness among the executives working in
Mobile wing or their signing certificates for satisfactory work by these
vendors either under pressure from seniors or with careless approach as it is
one of the routine work. It is seen
that many of the officers are not aware about the terms, conditions of such
AMCs and are till signing certificates under pressure or due to lack of
awareness of loss to BSNL.
All the comrades working
in field units are appealed to take update knowledge of AMCs available for GSM
equipment’s and understand and study the terms and conditions of such AMCs and
then sign the certificates of satisfactory services. No doubt that in some of
AMCs, no such certificate is also required and AMC bills are paid without such
scrutiny creating loss to BSNL. This will at least help us in getting services
from these vendors as per AMCs and at least have some watch on expenditure of crores of rupees of BSNL being made on such AMCs where services are not utilised
BSNL to proper depth.

GMs/Sr GMs as PGM for 37 unabsorbed senior ITS
officer without any change in duties, substantial status, pay, responsibilities

This order will not give any output either for
BSNL or for these individual officers but it will definitely help to certain
extent in resolving the present conflict between absorbed and unabsorbed ITS
officers about their reporting to junior unabsorbed ITS officers after their
fast track promotion as compared to promotions of unabsorbed ITS officers.

18 DEC 15: CHQ
Forum writes to Hon Prime
Minister on Chennai Flood: Exemplary and unparalleled effort
of the BSNL in providing landline and mobile services during recent catastrophe
and life threatening turmoil at Chennai should act as an eye opener for Telecom
Policy makers who have been abjectly overlooking with disdain the great
contribution that BSNL has played in the past and continues to play during the
time National calamities strike and when question of grave National Security
arises. Private operators have betrayed and continue to betray. Policy framework needs to
recognize this critical fact and firm policy provisions to strengthen BSNL need
to be incorporated and executed like 1) Free Space to built up mobile network
at every Government buildings, Pilgrim Centers, Airports, Railway stations,
Ports, Tourist destinations, Bus stands, Hospitals, parks, Fishing Harbours, Beach, Market places, Educational institutions
and other State Govt. offices etc and 2) reduce the huge Air Wave
/Satellite Charges levied from BSNL for giving Telecom services in Andaman,
Jammu Kashmir, Lakshadweep and North East areas.

on 17.12.2015 and held discussions on:
of Jt Committee recommendations on E2, E3 pay scales,
CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and first TBP after 5 years: Assn explained the urgency to process the recommendations. Since 3rd
PRC is going to be constituted, it is very urgent to settle the standard pay
scales. Otherwise it will create problem during interaction with 3rd
PRC. CMD assured that it will be processed as assured to the Assn at the time
of re-constitution of the Jt Committee itself.
b) The Forum
initiative of 100 days drive “SERVICE WITH A SMILE” w.e.f 01.01.2016. CMD was very much enthusiastic about
the initiative taken by the Forum and assured that the programme
will be inaugurated simultaneously at BSNLCO, Circle and SSA HQs.

Forum leaders meeting with Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL: Forum leaders met CMD, BSNL on 11.12.2015 and conveyed the decision of
the Forum to observe 100 days drive: “SERVICE WITH A SMILE” (S W A S) from 01st January,
2016 onwards. CMD very much appreciated the initiative taken by the Forum and
assured full support. Forum further requested to formally inaugurate the drive

to this proposal also.
“SERVICE WITH A SMILE” (SWAS) 100 DAYS

Reconnection of Broadband and Landline connections.·
Special focus on Enterprise Business,
Leased line, CUG and 3G customers.·
Special focus us on MNP.
Forum suggested another marketing
initiative, “Free call diversion
from Mobile to Land line and from Land line to Mobile”. Free call diversion
from Mobile to Land line can popularize and increase the usage of landlines at
residences and offices and solve complaints of Low Coverage, No coverage and
indoor coverage at residences, offices, buildings etc. Free call diversion from
Land line to Mobile on faulty conditions ensures that the customer is not
missing any calls to the faulty telephone.

Circular -- decisions of the Forum meeting on 10.12.2015
17 DEC 15: BSNL CO
issued clarification in respect of posting to All India Soft Tenure stations and
for counting of stay of executives working in Non-Territorial & City based
Circles. Letter <<<>>>
· Though letter states that these
modifications are issued to facilitate and promote executives for posting to
hard, Soft tenure stations, the modification issued for break on posting to
same Circle Soft Tenure station is discouraging as it will not count for break
in long stay except period for which officer is working at soft tenure station
and he/she will not transferred for two years after completion of All India
Soft tenure. SNEA will take up this
matter for restoration of facility for counting break in Circle stay of officer
working at tenure station. This order defeats the purpose of calling these
stations as All India Soft Tenures stations if long stay break is not granted
for all India transfers.
· The counting of stay of non-territorial
Circle and territorial Circle together was resolution passed in our CEC
Aurangabad and has been finally accepted by BSNL CO.
· This clarification will definitely reduce
the request transfers from Non territorial Circle like WTP/WTR/DNW/INSP etc. to Territorial circles
like MH and vice versa just for break of long stay and now even after such
transfer the stay will be counted from the entry in the Circle cadre regardless
of his/her working in Non-Territorial or territorial circle.
17 DEC 15:Shri. G. K. Upadhyay, CGMT MH appreciates efforts for C Top up revenue and congratulate Sindhudurg , Gadchiroli, Nagpur, Dhule, Latur & Nashik SSAs for more than 100 % and Amravati, Pune, Solapur, Beed & Ahmednagar SSA for more than 90 % achievement during Month

7 DEC 15: CHQ News
Meeting with Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD/BSNL on
07.12.2015: GS met CMD, BSNL and held
discussions regarding implementation of Joint Committee recommendations on E2,
E3 pay scales, CPSU cadre hierarchy and first TB promotion. GS informed CMD
that the recommendations are submitted two months back, on 07.10.2015. But the
recommendations are not processed so far on CPSU cadre Hierarchy and first TBP.
Instead of processing the recommendation of the Committee headed by an officer
of the level of ED, confusion is created by the dissent note by two members. GS told CMD that it
was pointed out at the time of reconstitution of the committee itself that some
members will never allow any solution to the issues benefiting the absorbed
employees, but management assured that they will take the responsibility in
that case. When it was known to everybody that they will never agree for any
solution to these issues, there is no point in discussing the note submitted by
them without proper justification.
GS further added that
last week DIR(HR) assured that a decision will be
taken in two weeks time on the recommendations. CMD informed that DIR(HR) discussed the matter with him few days back. CMD
assured that the committee recommendations will be taken very seriously and
will be processed without further delay.

From Mgt side PGM(SR), GM(Estt),
GM(Pers), Addl GM(P),
DGM(SR) and DGM(Rect) attended. Discussions held on
the following points:
actions on the Joint Committee report on a) implementation of E2, E3 pay scales
replacing intermediary pay scales of E1A, E2A etc and b) introduction of CPSU
cadre hierarchy in BSNL, first TBP after 5 years w.e.f
pointed out that finalization of pay scales of the basic cadres of JTO/JAO,
SDE/AO and equivalent cadre is pending since the 2nd wage revision on
01.01.2007. The Joint Committee submitted its recommendations on 07.10.2015. It
may be finalised at the earliest. Since all the promotions are stayed
especially by the Hon CAT, Chandigarh on Nagaraju
case, the stalemate on present functional promotion may continue for longer
period. The recommendations on CPSU cadre hierarchy will be an ideal
alternative to the present two tier promotion system which suits the company’s
Jt Committee recommendations on E2, E3 pay scale are
processed by the Estt wing. Since GM(Estt) was one of the members of the Jt
Committee and taken a view against the recommendation, Assn expressed
apprehension with regard to her proposal on the subject. Finally after discussions
DIR(HR) informed that decision on the proposal already
reached DIR(HR) office on E2, E3 pay scales will be taken within one weeks
time. Since some committee members given different views, it also will be
cadre hierarchy, the Restg wing submitted its views
and the matter is under examination in Pers section. Addl GM(P) informed that report is
salient on some aspects and it has to be examined in detail. GS informed that
as committee member, all aspects are examined and such points can be discussed.
Since it is a policy matter, formalities are to be worked out when management
taken a view on the policy matter. After discussions it is decided that the
issue will be examined and processed in two weeks time. Any specific issue left
which is to be addressed by the Committee itself, it will be listed out. Then
mgt will take a decision on that or it may be referred back to the committee
for further examination. The 3rd recommendation on first TBP after 5
years will be processed with this.
We are waiting for a positive decision from
the management on both issues in another two weeks time.
on pay fixation on offtg promotion --
Recovery/reduction in pay.
is told that the committee submitted its report. The Committee not agreed to
our demand to withdraw the illegal clarifications issued on 30.05.2007 and
19.02.2010. Committee is of the opinion that they are in order. Assn told the
committee that the clarification dated 30.05.2010 at sl
no 10 is contrary to the provisions II(i), (v) and
(vi) of the EPP order dated 18.01.2007 which is approved by BSNL Board as well
as DoT. So clarification without the approval of BSNL Board, contrary to the
provisions of EPP is illegal. Further clarification dated 19.02.2010
disallowing the pay on officiating promotion is against the various provisions
the JTO/JAO officiated as SDE/AO, SDE/AO officiated as DE/CAO, DE/CAO
officiated as DGM etc atleast for a year either in
DoT or BSNL and got adhoc or regular promotion after
01.10.2000 will be affected by this decision. They will face reduction in pay
by two to three increments, pension and recovery of pay to the tune of lakhs of rupees. Only way out is to withdraw the illegal
clarifications issued. DIR(HR) told that the findings
of the committee will be intimated to the Assn and further clarifications on
the observations of the committee can be taken up. If the recommendation of the
committee is accepted, it will affect more than 15,000 Executives having
serious implications leading to industrial unrest.
TBP from Lateral JTO to SDE and Sr SDE to DE grades
after four years instead of five years as in the case of promotion from AAO to
AO and Sr AAO to CAO.
explained that there no difference in promotion from AAO to AO and Sr AO to CAO and corresponding engineering cadres like
lateral JTO to SDE and Sr SDE to DE in the Time Bound
promotion policy. The hierarchy followed in BSNL is uniform and TBP is implemented
based on the hierarchy. Our demand for TBP from lateral JTO to SDE, AAO to AO, Sr SDE to DE and Sr AO to CAO
grades are rejected on the same plea earlier. Now the benefit is extended to
one section leaving the others which created large scale resentment among the
Executives. Assn requested to extend the benefit uniformly to all the
discussion DIR(HR) directed to examine the case and
further directed the concerned officers that in future uniformity should be
ensured for all the sections of Executives in all promotions.
pay of E1A and E2A scales for the JTO/SDE (Civil/Electrical/Arch) wings w.e.f 01.10.2000.
is under examination in Estt wing. The Vinay Sahi Committee
recommendations, the BSNL Board decisions on the report and the circumstances
in which JAO cadre given the benefit etc are under examination by Estt wing.
verification related issues – restoration of facilities in view of delay,
deduction of subscription from salary, modification on policy etc.
It was told
by management that BSNL filed an early hearing application and it will be heard
shortly. However, Assn pointed out that the stalemate is continuing for months
together. Atleast BSNL has to restore the facilities
and start deduction of subscription from salary. After discussion, DIR(HR) told that we will wait for another month and if no
decision is coming from court, Assns demand will be considered.
3 DEC 15: CHQ News Meeting

wing as and when required. Mgt agreed to examine the case. The recommendations
on CPSU hierarchy are under examination.
meeting on offtg promotion. Mgt informed that the
committee is finalised its recommendations but details not divulged. However it is gathered
that the committee is not in favour of withdrawal of the illegal clarifications
which are against the provisions of the EPP order and FRSR. In that case all
the Executives officiated in DoT or BSNL in any post and got regular promotion
after 01.10.2000 in BSNL will face reduction in pay, pension and recovery of
pay. We are very clearly told that in case management not withdrawing the
illegal clarification, it will lead to industrial unrest.

directions are given to Kerala Circle to file the reply. Additional informations if any will be given after discussions.

actions to ensure that the issue is decided by the Hon SC at the earliest. The
case is listed for 11.12.2015.
5. DGM Promotion: Assn requested to expedite the same.
Since all the DEs are completed 4 years of service, they are eligible for DGM

informed that actions are already initiated to fill up all the vacancies,
around 750 and for regular promotion if additional ACRs are required, it will
be collected also.

clarifications for Civil/Electrical wings. The case is already heard and
judgment is reserved.

created by Finance wing officers on the integrity of the ERP system itself.
Now this time consuming procedure of sending
confirmation by email will be stopped from 01/11/2015 & payments will be
released as appearing in ERP system itself without waiting for confirmation of
email. This will save time of officers in ERP as well as field units as the
officers in field units will not have to
send covering email and officers in CSC will not have to check
hundred/thousands of emails daily which was one of the reasons for delayed
payments in CSC.
Let us hope this new procedure speed up the bill payments
through ERP and the saved energy of the officers is used for creative works
without doubts on integrity of field officers and integrity of ERP system

The committee has been
reconstituted after SNEA agitation in April-May, 2015 with Sri Mohammed Ashraf Khan as the Chairman. This decision has been taken
in the meeting between SNEA and CMD, DIR (HR) and ED (Fin) on 06.05.2015 during
the agitation. CMD assured in the meeting that the committee will conclude the
recommendations by 15.08.2015 by regular meetings, at least once in a
fortnight. The earlier committee formed on 28.02.2012 was
defunct for more than 3 years which compelled SNEA to launch trade union
actions in February, 2014 and in April-May, 2015. After the reconstitution, SNEA
followed up the issues on a day to day basis which resulted in the final
recommendations within four and half months’ time. Before that SNEA pursued the
pay scale issue in DoT and DPE vigorously and got the
proposal of intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A rejected by DPE.
Comrades, we have to be very vigilant
and in full organizational preparedness to ensure that the recommendations are
implemented in totality without any change. As some negative forces are working
to see that no cadre issue is getting resolved for the absorbed/directly
recruited Executives, we have to keep ourselves prepared for any organizational
actions in short notice to see that the recommendations are getting implemented
in the minimum possible time. B. Popularizing and effective marketing of
new Broad band schemes with 2 Mbps speed. CMD requested to give maximum publicity
to the new schemes and get maximum connections. The revenue has to increase
considerably in the coming months by the new initiatives.

notional promotion, notional pay (without arrears), pension and the service

147 officers will not be included in seniority list 1 to 17 as their names were

BSNL agreed to submit the original seniority lists of 1 to 17 to the expert
committee without inserting the names of 147 officers which committee accepted.

SEP 15: Congratulations !!!: Joint Committee recommendations on the
agenda of a) CPSU Cadre hierarchy and b) first TBP uniformly after 4
years to remove the anomaly is signed by all the Committee members. We
thank Sri Mohammed Ashraf Khan, Chairman of
the Jt Committee to complete the task in time.
The Joint Committee was reconstituted with new Chairman after SNEA
agitation in April – May, 2015 and our discussions with CMD, DIR (HR) and ED
(Fin) on 06.05.2015. The Committee has given time up to 15.08.2015.
The 3rd agenda
of first TBP after 4 years also become part of the Joint Committee agenda as a
result of our agitation. Earlier Jt Committee could not do anything in this regard.Ultimately our struggle
for that last two years, from February, 2014 onwards demanding finalization of
standard pay scales of E2, E3 replacing E1A and E2A, implementation of CPSU cadre
hierarchy and first TBP uniformly after 4 years are getting positive
recommendations from the Joint Committee, a very positive and bold step towards
the total resolution of the issue. Our efforts to get the proposal of
E1A and E2A scales rejected by DoT and DPE was the turning point in the
The report will be
submitted to CMD, BSNL on 05.10.2015, after his return from tour. As expected, two committee members from official side,
Smt. Madhu Arora, GM (Estt) and Smt. Smitha Choudhary, GM (EF) given dissent
note. While GM (Estt) given some alternate
suggestions at least, GM (EF) completely disagree with all the positive
recommendations which benefits the company as well as the Executives.
The main recommendations are:a. JTO to SDE and equivalent eligibility shall be 5 years
of regular service in the grade and a benchmark to be kept as Good and not more than one Average. For SC/ST candidates two
Average may be allowed.b. SDE to Sr SDE and equivalent
eligibility shall be 5 years of regular service in the grade and benchmark to
be kept as Good and not more than one Average. For
SC/ST candidates two Average may be allowed.c. Sr SDE to DE and equivalent eligibility shall be 5 years
of regular service in the grade and benchmark to be kept as Good
and not more than one Average. For SC/ST candidates two Average
may be allowed.d. DE to DGM promotion will be restricted to the
availability of posts. The balance DEs may be promoted as Jt
DGM (parking Lot). DE to DGM and equivalent eligibility shall be 5 years of
regular service as DE and bench mark to be kept as Very Good and not more than
one Good. For SC/ST candidates not more than two Good.e. DGM to JAG- SG and equivalent may be promoted in the
grade of E6 in 5 years as per existing time bound promotion scheme with the
bench mark of Very Good and not more than one Good.f. The bench marks in above (c) & (d) are same as in
Schedule -II of existing CPC as per Group ARRs.g. There are some UPSC recruited DEs or equivalent of
1995 batch etc as on today. All UPSC recruits of all batches may be promoted
en-bloc to DGM if they meet the bench mark. The executives already promoted to
higher post on post based promotion will stand senior en-bloc.
Agenda No.3: To examine the implementation of first time bound promotion uniformly
after four years w.e.f. 01.10.2000: Committee is of the view that after the
recommendation given above for CPSU cadre hierarchy, this issue gets resolved
partially. As per recommendation already given for Agenda 1 in the third
meeting of committee on 09.07.2015, the minimum service required for up
gradation from E2 to E3 as proposed in (a) above is 5 years.
To address the anomaly, the committee recommends that
first pay scale up gradation will be given in maximum of five years instead of
six years, notionally w.e.f. 01.10.2000. However,
existing provision of first time bound promotion after reaching minimum of net
higher scales in four years shall remain unaffected.

assured that CHQ will provide all possible material to provide maximum
connections. He thanked organizers for invitation
Com. S.V. Bhad,
CP SNEA (I) MH Circle thanked team of SNEA (I) Pune
for arranging Special General Body meeting in such a grand way. He elaborated
the main reason for creation of PSUs in India was to generate employment however
gigantic PSU like BSNL is made to loss because of delay in decision, wrong
policies and unprecedented favoritism to private companies. Delay in decision
making has put BSNL in today awkward position. Key posts like CMD, Director
Fin, and Director HR were kept vacant for more than a year. However it was the
pressure of Forum of all Unions/Associations in BSNL that post of CMD and
Director HR are now filled. BSNL has lost good no of customers while
implementing CDR/ERP. Deloitte recommendations are made without any
consultation with unions/associations of BSNL and without ascertaining need of
customers and employees working in BSNL. He highlighted the efforts of SNEA (I)
CHQ for conducting DPCs for JTO-SDE, SDE-DE and DE-DGM promotions. He told how
SNEA (I) CHQ is making continuous efforts in removing the discrimination
between diploma and degree holder of civil wing which is mainly occurring at
the time of their promotions. He appealed all to join Save BSNL –Save nation
campaign. He narrated that most of the executives in MH are now joining SNEA
(I). Not only JTO/SDE/DE/DGM level officers are member of SNEA (I) but GM level
officers are also joining SNEA (I) MH Circle. He shared his experience with practical examples about the
difference of attitude of leaders of different.
The meeting was concluded with
vote of thanks and thereafter National Anthem.
2 sept 15: Today’s Strike by Central Trade Unions &
especially by different unions in BSNL: Central Trade unions are going
for one day strike on 02.09.2015. The strike is against the anti employee
policies of the Govt, against disinvestment of CPSUs,
minimum wages hike for the labourers etc. SNEA (I) has decided to provide
solidarity support to the strike by joining the demonstrations with the
HAPPY 69th INDEPENDENCE DAY
5 AUG 15: Joint Committee meeting on CPSU cadre hierarch: The Joint committee meeting held
today and discussion took place for about two hours. Chairman and members from
Management side proposed very stringent attendant conditions along with
interview, grade of service and educational qualifications to decide the
promotions. The bench mark should be minimum “Very Good” according to them even
for JTO to SDE promotion.
SNEA (I) made the following submissions:
1. The terms and conditions of
absorption in BSNL ensured Time Bound promotions from JTO to SG JAG grade
between 4 to 6 years with attendant conditions, without linking promotions with
availability of posts. Promotions beyond SGJAG will be based on availability of
2. However in Executive Promotion
Policy (EPP), the promotions are divided into two parts, I. Time bound IDA pay
scale up gradations and II. Post based promotions.
very strongly opposed any interview for promotions or promotions based on
educational qualifications. Now thousands of Executives are working in
different scales. They are getting pay scales and good pay. But due to various
reasons, mainly due to litigations they are not getting functional promotion
which provides higher responsibility and status. For example thousands of
Executives are in Sr SDE scale (E3) but working as
JTO. Similarly thousands of Executives are in DGM scale (E5) or in DE scale
(E4) but still working as SDEs. Again, recently the promotions in almost all
the cadres in BSNL are stayed by Hon Chandigarh Tribunal without implementing
judgment on Nagaraju case on SC/ST reservation. So the
new promotion policy should address the twin problems of i) seniority related issues and ii)
availability of vacancies/posts as much possible and ensure smooth promotions.
following points are to be deliberated.
Time bound functional promotion has
to be implemented upto which grade, without linking it
with availability of posts and minimum how many promotions can be assured. For
this data can be verified to know how many Executives are working in each
Reporting and hierarchy to be followed in the new
set up and duties and responsibilities.
Bench mark for each promotion to be
reviewed and decided as per the present practice.
d) Qualifying service and quantum of relaxation in
New Designations to be introduced
No of promotions: The minimum
number of promotions should be maintained as 5 itself in the new scheme also.
No of Executives working in each
grade. Majority of the Executives are working in Telecom Engg wing. The total number is about 34,500.
JTO Scale-- About 4800, SDE Scale
-- About 4300, Sr SDE Scale - About 11800, AGM
Scale -- About 7800, DGM Scale --About 5200, SG JAG Scale -- About 600.
d) Accounts – 6500, Civil – 1747, Elect: 1134, Arch --- 147, TF --- 122, Misc – 425.
Reporting, hierarchy to be followed
and duties and responsibilities: Bell curve issue can be addressed by
following hierarchy. Existing hierarchy to be changed (JTO -à SDE -àDE -à DGM) to JTO/SDE/Sr SDE/DE --à DGM/SG JAG -àGM -à PGM. Duties and
responsibilities can be modified accordingly.
Bench mark: BSNL Executives are working in
different areas like External, Internal, installations, planning, offices,
mobile, transmission, landline etc. The performance of the
Executives are depending upon the area of their posting and availability
of material, manpower, labour, stores, equipments etc. So the performance of
the Executives working in various areas cannot be compared at all on the basis
of APAR alone. Most of the other PSUs are in production sector and the nature
of job is more or less same or comparable. They are having time tested
mechanisms of performance evaluation. So the promotion mechanism in other CPSUs
cannot be copied as such in BSNL at least for the time being. So the new bench
mark should be finalized considering this fact as well as and the bench mark
existing today for post based promotions.
Qualifying service and quantum of
relaxation in service: The qualifying service should be between 4 to 6 years as
per the terms and condition and it should not be more than 6 years in any case.
Note: Now IDA pay scale up
gradations are given on completion of qualifying service. Post based
promotions are given with relaxation in service (1 year relaxation for JTO to
SDE promotion where the qualifying service is 3 years). Since the
pre-appointment training varies from one to two years, relaxation of qualifying
service to the Executives of same rect year (in case of rect) / vacancy year (in case of promotion) also to
be considered. Similar relaxation is to be considered for promotion to DE grade
also for the existing Executives working at SDE/Sr
SDE/DE scales. However no relaxation is required for Sr
SDE grade. For the Executives who got relaxation for promotion to the SDE grade
as per the new scheme, further relaxation at Sr SDE
and DE grade are not required.
New Designation to be followed as
done in BSNLCO:
j) After discussion, Mgt side agreed for Time Bound
functional promotions to SDE and Sr SDE grades.
Promotion to AGM and DGM grades on time bound basis will collapse the existing
mechanism, according to the members from Mgt side. We
strongly opposed this view. Discussion will continue in the next
meeting on 13.08.2015, 3 PM.
