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.

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
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

Forum writes to Hon Prime
Minister on Chennai Flood: Exemplary and unparalleled effort

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

Ports, Tourist destinations, Bus stands, Hospitals, parks, Fishing Harbours,

to this proposal also.

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.

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.

BABASAHEB AMBEDKAR ON HIS MAHAPARINIRVAN DIN.
4 DEC 15: CHQ News
meeting with Smt Sujata T Ray, DIR(HR): The
scheduled agenda meeting with DIR(HR) (first Tuesday of each month) held on
02.12.2015. GS, President and Jt Sec attended the meeting. 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 01.10.2000.
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 requirement also.
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 examined.
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 of FRSR.
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 Executives.
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
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
with GM(Pers) on 01.12.2015: GS along with CHQ President and Jt Sec held
discussions with GM(P) and DGM(P) on the following issues.
of Jt Committee recommendations on E2, E3 pay scales, CPSU cadre hierarchy: The necessary changes in
the EPP has to be examined by Pers section so that required informations can be
submitted to the Esst 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.
to SDE case – delay in filing the reply. GM informed that already
directions are given to Kerala Circle to file the reply. Additional
informations if any will be given after discussions.
4. Court case on 206 case
based on the expert committee report. Assn requested that BSNL has to take
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
Regular promotion also. Actions may be taken for regular promotions also. Mgt
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.
6. Court case on BSNLMS RR
clarifications for Civil/Electrical wings. The case is already heard and
judgment is reserved.
7. Notional pay w.e.f
01.10.2000 for Civil/Elect etc wings. The issue is still under
examination with Estt section.
8. Amendment in Transfer
policy. The proposal to amend the transfer policy to consider the combined stay
of all Executives in a Territorial Circle comprising of the recruiting and non-recruiting
Circles is approved by the Management Committee. This policy will be
implemented from next quarter from January, 2016.

10 OCT 15:DGM CSC Mumbai calls for vendor category information from all
SSAs/units for introduction of new procedure for bill payments w.e.f.
01/11/2015. Letter <<<>>>
introduction of ERP in Maharashtra Circle to have double check and avoid
duplicate/non genuine payments of vendor bills, this stringent system of
confirmation of ERP payments by covering email was started. This was time
consuming procedure as till the confirmation email is not received till the
payments were not released though it was appearing in ERP.
Ø This has
created panic in the filed officers and among vendors as for such small reasons
the payments were held up from days to months together. Also it was doubt
created by Finance wing officers on the integrity of the ERP system itself.
Ø 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

Further actions on the recommendations of

recommendations of the Jt Committee.
On our apprehension about the dissent note by the committee members from
official side, CMD assured that management is committed to resolve the issues
and the dissent note will not come on the way. CMD informed that the report has
been already marked to DIR (HR) for further actions.
The Joint Committee
Replacement of intermediary pay scales
of E1A and E2A with standard pay scales of E2 and E3 w.e.f 01.01.2007.
Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy or
TB functional promotion from JTO/JAO --> SDE/AO --> Sr SDE/Sr
AO -->DE/CAO/EE without linking with existing seniority and availability of
posts, with a residency period of 5 years for each promotion from one grade to
the next grade.
Maximum residency period for first TB
promotion is recommended to reduce from 6 years to 5 years w.e.f 01.10.2000.
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.
New Business Avenue by imparting training
– advantage of recent tour to Kenya to attend the Afro-Asia submit. CMD explained
the new initiatives to increase the revenue by imparting training with the
available infrastructure. BSNL utilizing this as an opportunity and DoT is
supporting BSNL to get new businesses.

met Shri N. Sivasailam, Additional Secretary, DoT today. Since the Additional
Secretary is also a director of the BSNL Board, the Core Committee members discussed
a number of issues connected with the viability of BSNL and solicited his
fullest cooperation for strengthening the Company. The Additional Secretary
responded very positively. He expressed his desire that BSNL should become the
no.1 telecom operator in the country and assured his fullest cooperation for
it. We drew his attention to the fact that the post of Director (Finance),
BSNL, is lying vacant for a very long time, which is adversely affecting the
functioning of the Company.

seniority lists 1 to 5: The last meeting of the
committee held today. It is expected that the report will be submitted by the
Expert Committee to the Hon Supreme Court by 15th October, 2015. Now the case is listed for hearing on

It is expected
that the expert committee report will be:
Hon SC order dated 20.01.2015, the seniority lists 1 to 5 is revised to old 1 to
17 (promoted up to 1994) followed by list 18 (those promoted in 1998 and
revision of seniority, there will not be any reversion from Substantiate
status. Those who promoted earlier and become junior on revision of seniority and
may face reversion, the promotion and pay will be protected.
seniors on revision /restoration of seniority list 1 to 17 will be given
notional promotion, notional pay (without arrears), pension and the service
will be counted for the next promotion.
147 officers will not be included in seniority list 1 to 17 as their names were
not available in the original list. Assn strongly objected BSNL move to include
their names in the original list 1 to 17 by inserting their names and giving seniority
from 1990 onwards. Further Hon Ernakulam HC quashed their revision of seniority
from 1994 to 1990 onwards also. Finally 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. Now they are placed in the next
seniority list of 18 (for those promoted in 1998 or later), giving seniority
from 1994 to 1996 onwards till
Hon SC decides the SLP.

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 struggle. 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.

SEPt 15: GS SNEA (I) CHQ writes to Director HR BSNL Board on wrong
procedure adopted by BSNL Corporate office in counting long stay of SDEs in
Maharashtra Circle by adding MTNL stay for calculating stay in MH Circle and
rightly points out how the stay of two different territorial Circles namely
MTNL Mumbai Circle & BSNL Maharashtra Circle is intentionally
misinterpreted for combined counting in recent clarification issued by BSNL CO.
SEPt 15: Allotment
of laptops directly to SDE/JTO in charge of BTS Maintenance: AGM
NWP GSM Mumbai issues allotment of 37 brand new & highly technical laptops
directly on name of JTO/SDE in charge of BTS Maintenance team for each and
every SSAs in Maharashtra Circle. Letter <<<>>>
2 SEPt 15: BSNL
CO writes Circle heads for sending consolidated data and applications of
request transfers on quarterly basis and assures to consider all requests on
quarterly basis. Letter <<<>>>
In Maharashtra Circle about 20 requests in
SDE Cadre for out of Circle transfer are held up & about 4-5 SDEs under
transfer from Maharashtra Circle are yet to be relieved. SNEA (I) MH has taken
up this issue with Shri. Pravin Malhotra, Sr GM HR/Admn Mumbai and has
assured to consider all pending requests for transfer/relieving to other Circle
sympathetically and we are hopeful that as per this letter all such requests
will be considered & sent to BSNL CO before end of this quarter.
But there is issue of relieving
officers whose requests are not sent through proper channel and direct copies
of individuals are entertained by BSNL CO,
in such cases which not routed through its Circle Office, the
Maharashtra Circle has taken stand not to relieve these officers even though
order have been issued by BSNL CO. We will also take up matter with competent
authorities for relieving of officers under transfer, but all comrades are
requested to follow guidelines issued by BSNL CO on this subject and send all
request through proper channel and in cases there is reluctance from controlling
officer/SSA Head to forwarding request, fresh representation addressed to CGMT
MH along with copy of original request may sent with name & post of officer
withholding request at any stage.

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)

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
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 s
