7 APR 15 Meeting with Director (HR): CHQ President, AGS, Com Dahiya and CS/BSNL Co, Com Khan, met Director(HR) and discussed following issues. 

A.  Filing of SLP in Honble Supreme Court by BSNL against the stay granted by Ernakulam High Court on JTO to TES Gr B promotion:
We strongly pleaded that BSNL should immediately file an SLP in Honble Supreme Court to vacate the stay granted by Ernakulam High Court on JTO to TES Gr B promotion. We informed Director (HR) that there are very strong and justified grounds for BSNL to file SLP against interim order of Ernakulam High Court in view of judgments given by CAT Chennai and CAT Ernakulam comprehensively dismissing the petitions challenging the promotion from JTO to TES Gr on merits. The grounds cited in Ernakulam High Court challenging JTO to TES Gr B promotion are more or less the same that were raised in CAT Chennai and CAT Ernakulam. We also informed Director (HR) that BSNL Management cannot sit as a silent spectator in view of the fact that JTOs are waiting for more than 20- years for their first promotion and must act very swiftly to ensure that stay granted by Ernakulam High Court is vacated is vacated at the earliest. Director (HR) was also informed that this Association is also filing SLP in Supreme Court against the stay granted by Ernakulum High Court. After having been apprised of all the facts, Director (HR) assured that he would discuss immediately the issue with concerned officers and whatever legal action is needed to be taken to facilitate holding of DPC from JTO to TES Gr B would surely be taken. 

B.    Restoration of trade union facilities withdrawn after notification of membership verification process We once again reminded Director (HR) about the discussions we have had with him on this issue and his assurance that he would consider restoration of trade union facilities withdrawn after notification of verification process. We informed him that despite his assurances no further action has been taken in this regard. Director (HR) assured that he would initiate action on this issue immediately.

C.   Reversion of 73 JTOs of UP (W): We apprised Director (HR) on this issue on the same lines we apprised CMD and sought his immediate intervention to ensure that such a dangerous situation does not arise. Director (HR) assured that he would try to take a very sympathetic view of the whole after examining it in detail.


7 APR 15 In two separate letters, AGM Staff Mumbai issued waiting list of request transfers in JTO and SDE Cadre. JTO W/L <<<>>>  SDE W/L   <<<>>>

 Any requests for cancellation or modification of transfers are to be submitted latest by 20/04/2015.  It is also seen over the years that some of officers are not in need of transfers but applying transfers and when order is issued then pressing hard for cancellation, which is wastage of time and energy.

The officers who are not in need of transfers should withdraw their request as it is difficult to get the transfer orders cancelled once it is issued and it unnecessarily disturbs the life of substitute being posted against him and also it affects chain of substitutes.It is also seen that some of officers have submitted options more than one and Staff Section may give any choice available and it is seen that latter stage said comrades complain that it was not his first choice. Hence all such comrades who have given multiple options are requested to confirm choice and give only one most favorite choice and if he /she is willing for any of the opted SSAs, then no problem.

  The officers, who are coming in long stay list of SSA, may also think on their probable transfer as substitute and if their name is coming under zone of substitute, and if willing for any of the SSA, may submit their willingness accordingly to avoid transfers at unwanted locations, otherwise no problem.  

The officers in waiting list should be careful this time, as this is April Month and the request transfers will be considered during this month on the basis of this waiting list. 


6 APR 15 Seniority List 6 and 7 of TES Group B equivalent to SDE (T) Revised: BSNL CO issued revised seniority list 6 & 7 of SDEs as per judgment dated 25.08.2009 of Hon bled CAT, Chandigarh Bench in TA No. 84/HR/2009.

TESA FLASH Editorial:

E1 scale for JTOs and E2 for SDEs?

No promotion even after twenty years! 

Is BSNL Management taking us back to the DoT era of 1980s?

The pay scale of JEs (now JTO) during 1980s was less than that of the selection Grade RSA/PI and that of the JAOs. Hardly 150 to 200 JEs were getting promotion as AEs (now SDE) in an year during that period. For the first promotion, JEs has to wait for 20 to 25 years! Thousands of JEs, even direct recruits, retired without a single promotion as AE. This was the situation in DoT during the 1980s.

The situation has drastically changed during the last three decades just because of the continuous struggle by the Association. All the struggles launched by the Association were astounding successes due to the unity among the officers. The pay scale of JEs was revised upwards thrice, first in 1986, next in 1996 and then again in 2000. External agencies like National Productivity council (NPC) in 1986 and 1996 made sweeping recommendations for upward revision of pay scales after making extensive studies on the strategic importance of this cadre. In 1996, NPC recommended the elevation of the cadre from Group “C” to Group “B” Gazetted along with the pay rise. Both recommendations were accepted and accordingly V CPC recommended upgraded pay scales and Group “B” Gazetted status to JTO cadre. Since 1990, we have witnessed thousands of JTOs being promoted as SDEs.

Recognition of this basic cadre in terms of pay scales and status motivated the entire cadres which in turn contributed towards the growth in Telecom sector. During 1990s and early 2000s, we had seen unprecedented growth in the Telecom sector, in DoT. This was definitely the contribution of the highly motivated employees of DoT and BSNL during that period.

Now, in BSNL, things are started moving in the reverse direction. The pay scales of JTOs and SDEs due for revision from 01.01.2007 has not been finalised so far under the pretext of profitability eventhough the company was making huge profits at that point of time. From 2012 onwards the management has been constantly assuring us of E2, E3 scales if DoT and DPE did not agree to intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A. Now, it appears that the management has more or less made up its mind to demote the backbone of the company, JTO/JAO and SDE/AO to E1 and E2 scales. In the name of litigations, promotions are not at all taking place in SDE, DE and DGM cadres. Litigations are due to the flaws in the RRs or recruitment/promotion processes, not due to the fault of employees. This cannot be an excuse for the management for denying the promotions for years together. In the same company where equal promotional opportunity is expected for all the cadres, the disparity in promotions are so much, in one cadre, Executives have to wait for 20 to 25 years for a promotion while in some other equivalent cadres in other wings promotions are effected just within 5 years. In the present situation, there is no scope for any promotions in the near future at least for another two years in most of the cadres. Anticipating this situation, the Association was demanding a switch over to Time Bound Functional promotions which is also a part of the terms and conditions for absorption. The consultant also recommended the same. But there is no response at all.  There are other serious issues also to be addressed.

The demoralization and de-motivation among the executives reached alarming proportions as very serious issues related to pay scales and promotion, the only motivational aspect available in the company are not getting addressed for years together whatever be the reason. Executives can contribute towards growth of the company provided they are motivated. Therefore, these issues are to be addressed without any delay while giving equal importance to issues related to policies and procurement.

It is at this juncture that we are compelled to serve notice even when a strike notice is already given under the banner of Forum on policy and expansion related issues. We cannot be a simple spectator to what is happening to the cadre as we are the only ones who fought for the cadre, fought for the upliftment of the cadre and continue to fight for that. Let all of us be united as in 1980s and 1990s so that nobody can break us. We will end this journey only when the dignity of the cadre is protected and the issues are comprehensively addressed to our satisfaction. We appeal to all the Executives to join hands in this struggle for the prestige, nay, the existence of the cadre.

We requested to complete the work at the earliest and issue the promotion order this month itself, if possible as DPC is already over and current VC is available.

c.      Transfer from soft tenure stations on promotions, long stay etc: After detailed discussions, it was agreed to implement uniform policy for all tenure stations. Accordingly the transfer from soft tenure stations will be cancelled shortly. This issue was discussed with DIR(HR) also recently.

19 MAR 15: Meeting with Sri A. N. Rai, DIR(HR), BSNL on 13.03.2015: GS and President met Sri A. N. Rai and discussed the following issues:

a.     Switching over to Time bound Functional promotion from the existing seniority based promotions: Now promotions in various cadres held up due to litigations especially in Engg wing. Thousands of SDE, DE and DGM posts are vacant. JTO eligibility list is under challenge since 2009. All the SDE seniority lists (1 to 7) are quashed by the Hon Supreme Court. Promotions in various wings of the same company varies years together. JAO to AO promotion happening in 4 years whereas JTO(T) to SDE(T) promotion is not happening even after 20 years, JTO (C/E) to SDE(C/E) promotion is after 22 to 23 years etc. The uniform promotion policy for all the cadres in various wings is to be implemented as assured at the time of promotion.  Only solution is to switch over to TB functional promotion. The consultant also proposed the same. DIR(HR) assured that serious discussions in this regard can be held in the month of April.

b.    Finalization of  pay scales of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO cadres by E2, E3 scales from 01.01.2007: Assn pointed out that even after repeated assurances by the Management and rejection of the proposal by the DPE and DoT, no action is taken by the management so far to finalise the pay scales. The basic cadres are facing the threat of demotion which cannot be accepted at all. DIR(HR) is of the firm view that management is not in a position to consider this proposal due to financial constraints and even suggested that the future recruitment can be in E1 scale.

c.      30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees: Assn requested to resolve this issue as it is pending since pay revision. DIR(HR) informed that considering the financial condition of the company, 2% to 3% is under consideration of the Management at present which will be reviewed later. Assn requested to reconsider this and work out a mutually agreeable solution for all the stake holders with considerable hike in the percentage.

d.    Transfer from soft tenure areas: Assn requested to clear the confusion on transfer from soft tenure areas on long stay and promotion. The treatment on tenure and soft tenure stations should be uniform for all the purposes to avoid confusion. DIR (HR) agreed to our suggestions and told that uniform policy will be followed for tenure and soft tenure areas on transfer on long stay and promotion.

Comrades, the developments on pay scales, TB functional promotion and 30% superannuation benefits are not at all encouraging. On the other hand Management is not able to promote the executives to the vacant SDE, DE and DGM posts, simply citing court cases. This all compel us to re-launch the trade union actions we deferred in March, 2014 after repeated assurances. Make preparations accordingly.

19 MAR 15: Meeting with Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL on 16.03.2015: GS, President and both AGSs met Sri Anupam Shrivastava and discussed the following issues:

a.     Switching over to Time bound Functional promotion from the existing seniority based promotions: Assn explained the litigations going on seniority related issues which blocked the promotions in almost all the cadres. The litigations may continue in the future also. Only solution is to switch over to TB functional promotion. The consultant also proposed the same.

b.    Implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 from 01.01.2007: Even after repeated assurances by the Management and rejection of the proposal by the DPE and DoT, no action is taken by the management so far. The basic cadres are facing the threat of demotion which cannot be accepted at all.

After discussion CMD, suggested to have further discussion with DIR (HR) on these issues and will have discussions after that.

After discussions, Sr GM HR/Admn Mumbai has expressed the circumstances under which such harsh decision is taken by his office. He was kind enough to review matter for receiving all Rule-8 applications in Circle Office Mumbai and to maintain waiting list register for same and accordingly & immediately corrigendum is issued today for same. As such all SSA Heads and controlling officers will not held up any Rule-8 request transfer applications of JTOs and all the applications will be forwarded with their recommendations to Staff Section Mumbai and staff section will maintain Waiting list register for all such Rule-8 applications.

This is just some relief to JTOs seeking rule-8 transfers and it will be step towards transferency in implementation of Rule-8 request transfers  which are being received in more numbers nowadays and in recent past Circle Office has taken decision not to implement any Rule-8 transfer order due to acute shortage of JTOs. SNEA (I) MH will continue persuasion of this matter with probable solutions and methods for implementation of all these Rule-8 transfers at least in phase manner and at the same time matter will be taken up with BSNL Corporate Office for fresh recruitment of JTOs. In case JTO recruitment is not possible in coming days, then matter will be taken up for relieving of JTOs under Rule -8 transfers by calculating strength of JTO & SDEs together or by adopting any other probable solutions wherein works of BSNL will not suffer to much extent and JTOs asking Rule-8 transfer will also not suffer for long time. Let us hope for the best.

22 FEB 15: Meeting with Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD/BSNL: GS Com K. Sebastin, CHQ President Com G L Jogi and AGS Com Vivek Wankhede met Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL on 20.02.2015 and held discussions for about one hour on issues related to revival of BSNL and HR issues. Initially the meeting was scheduled for 09.02.2015 but due to the meeting with the Forum on the same day, it was postponed to 20.02.15. At the outset we assured our full support and cooperation to him for all the initiatives taken by the Management for the revival of BSNL.

CMD informed that Management will be very tough on the non performers and clear message is already given to all Circles/SSAs. Tough measures will be initiated to bring accountability and easy-going /indiscipline will not be tolerated at all.

On merger of SSAs, Assn told CMD that this move should not further concentrate the power and decision making. CMD informed that as a first step, the HR, Finance and planning activities in few Circles only will be centralised and the performance monitored for one year. If it is found effective, it will be implemented in other Circles also. The operations and related activities will remain with the concerned SSAs.

Finalization of standard Pay scales of E2, E3 etc for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO and equivalent cadre w.e.f. 01.01.2007: Assn explained the whole issue to the new CMD - assurance given in 2012 to Joint committee formation, rejection of E1A and E2A proposal by DoT, reiteration of implementations of standard pay scales by DPE in December/2012, assurance given to the Assn in March-Sept, 2014, rejection of E1A and E2A proposal by DPE in July, 2014 etc. The JTO/JAO and SDE/AO cadres which are the backbone of the company is not having pay scales for the last 8 years. There is a difference of Rs 3800/ between the basic pay of a JTO recruited prior to 01.01.2007 and after 01.01.2007.

CMD surprised to see that the pay scales of the JTO and SDE cadres are not finalised for 8 years even after clear instructions and rejection of the E1A and E2A proposal by the DPE/DoT and the committee is not deliberating and finalizing its recommendations as per the mandate given to it. Assn pointed out that in order to further delay the process, MTNL pension issue is unnecessary raised now which is no way connected with the pay revision w.e.f. 01.01.2007. CMD assured that he will discuss the matter with DIR (HR) and ensure that the committee concludes its report and a final decision is taken. We hope that CMD and DIR (HR) will take a final call on E2, E3 pay scales since E1A and E2A scales are repeatedly rejected by DPE and DoT.

Time Bound Functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy: GS told CMD that as on today JTO to SDE promotion, SDE to DE promotion and DE to DGM promotions are under litigation and Management is not able to fill up the vacancies. The entire promotions based on existing seniority lists from JTO to DGM are blocked. Being that the ground reality, the rationale behind the HR wings move even to stop the “proposal to give time bound promotion up to AGM level without consideration of vacancy” is not known. Is the HR wing having any other proposal to give promotion to the executives from JTO to DGM without any hurdle other than this? We don’t want to here again and again that promotions cannot be done due to court cases. Assn clearly told that nothing less than this proposal is acceptable to us and Management has to reconsider its decision to restrict Time bound promotion without consideration of vacancy” only up to SDE level. CMD assured us to examine the matter before implementation.

30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees: Assn explained the status of the issue. CMD informed that the Management is aware of the issue and some proposal is under consideration. Assn told CMD that the proposal under consideration is not going to solve the problem and requested to work out a reasonable solution to the issue after discussion with all stake holders since just like pay scale issue, the affected employees are losing the pension benefits for years together, from 2007.

CMD had a patient hearing for an hour and we got the right opportunity to draw his attention to some of the major HR issues. This is the first time we got such an opportunity to discuss the HR issues with the CMD. We hope that CMD will take appropriate action and initiative to resolve these issues as he understood that these issues are to be resolved in order to motivate the employees.

14 FEB 15: Meeting with Director (HR): CHQ President and both AGSs met Director (HR) to discuss following issues:

Immediate restoration of trade union facilities suspended consequent to initiation of flawed, objective less, mock and ridiculous membership verification process: We clearly conveyed to Director (HR) that it is completely unfair and arbitrary on the part of Management to keep trade union facilities in frozen condition since notification of membership verification process which is stayed by Karnataka HC for the last more than six months. Besides, this Association is completely and strongly opposed to going ahead with membership verification unless basic and pertinent issues raised by this Association and whose resolution alone will help achieve basic objective of membership verification process are comprehensively addressed, we informed Director(HR). We urged upon Director (HR) to initiate immediate action towards restoration of trade union facilities enjoyed by this Association prior to commencement of membership verification since day to day functioning of the Association stands adversely impacted on frivolous, flimsy and non- existent grounds. Director (HR) assured of very quick action to restore the facilities as early as possible and also assured that he will direct Sr GM (SR) to initiate appropriate action in this regard.  

b.    Monitoring of progress of DPC: We sought personal intervention of Director (HR) to monitor progress of ongoing seniority cum fitness DPC from JTO to TES Gr B and informed him that the progress of DPC is not as quick and on expected lines. We also informed Director (HR) that his personal intervention in closely monitoring progress of DPC has become absolutely necessary in view of slow pace of DPC work. Director (HR) assured that he will monitor progress of DPC personally besides directing concerned officers to expedite DPC as much as possible. Subsequently, we have had discussion with DGM (P) regarding accelerating the pace of DPC work and he assured that necessary action is already being taken to complete the work as quickly as possible.

14 FEB 15: Meeting with Sr GM (SR): We apprised Sr GM (SR) about the discussions that we have had with Director (HR) regarding restoration of trade union facilities and also pleaded with him to initiate quick action to ensure that facilities that have been suspended arbitrarily are restored at the earliest since there is absolutely no justification whatsoever in continuing with suspension of these facilities. Sr GM (SR) categorically assured that immediate action within a couple of days would be initiated to restore the facilities as quickly as possible.

12 FEB 15: Copy of interim stay order on JTO to SDE promotions for 3 weeks w.e.f. 04.02.2015 from Hon HC, Kerala: SNEA(I) is the only Assn, we reiterate the only Assn, present in the Hon HC and opposed the stay application in the Hon High Court. Our strong opposition along with the arguments of BSNL lawyer restricted the interim stay for 3 weeks even though the court initially granted stay for one month. In Hon CAT also, impleading applications were filed by others but they never bothered to file reply/counter reply or engage lawyer to argue the case even on final hearing dates. So comrades, don’t get confused or carried away by the propaganda from any quarter. Next date is 24.02.2015. Assn will be filing the counter reply shortly. Assn is pursuing with Management also to file the reply by BSNL in time.

Several Circles, the work is not at all progressing. Since the work is mainly handled by the Plg wing, PGM (BW) requested Assn to pursue at different level to complete the work as early as possible. Proper monetization of land assets can be done only after the mutation of land into BSNL name.

b. External projects, Construction of ATMs, renting our building, quarters etc: PGM (BW) explained the progress in this area and the initiatives taken by different Circles. Some Circles done excellent job by taking up large no of external projects where as some circles taken no initiative in this regard.

  9 FEB 15: By quoting acute shortage of JTOs in Maharashtra Circle, AGM Staff Mumbai issued orders for not forwarding Rule 8 request transfer orders of JTOs from Maharashtra to other Circles. Letter <<<>>>

         Till now all the Rule 8 requests of JTOs have been pursued by SNEA(I) MH and have been issued by Maharashtra Circle as total no. of cases were less at particular time and there was some recruitment /promotions to JTO cadre. But due to no recruitment of JTOs, over the years, there is acute shortage of JTOs in Maharashtra Circle as merely 19% JTOs are working in Maharashtra Circle w.r.t. to sanctioned strength. Also in one stroke about 45 JTOs have requested for Rule 8 transfer from Maharashtra/WTP/WTR Circles and none of controlling officers is ready to relive JTOs without substitute mainly due to acute shortage and as there is no chance of immediate substitute in JTO cadre. Though there are no restrictions on mutual transfers, the restrictions have been put on all Rule 8 transfers of all JTOs from Maharashtra Circle. Though SNEA (I) MH understands the acute shortage of JTOs, total ban of rule 8 transfers of JTOs out of Maharashtra Circle, without any line of future action is not proper & acceptable solutions and SNEA (I) MH will take up this matter with Circle Management for some practical remedy on implementation of Rule 8 transfers of JTOs in phase manner by making alternative/ stop gap arrangements.

 2 FEB 15: News From SNEA(I) MH on DE L/A Promotions: SNEA (I) MH writes to Shri. M.K.Jain, CGMT MH Circle about unrest among the comrades about careless approach of Circle management in dealing with DE LA arrangements & compulsions on SSA Heads as well as our SDEs to illegally work as DE LA.  Letter <<<>>>

BSNL CO Orders for Looking After Arrangements <<<>>

SNEA (I) MH points out the following main issues:

·        Adoption of procedure for long-long note sheets by CGMT MH and fear in minds of officers in processing files creating overall delay in settlement of cases.

·        How Circle Management creates wrong picture as if the SDEs are given promotions, when fact is that Looking After is not promotion & it is just stop gap arrangement to fill vacant posts.

·        Points about the careless approach and poor mindset of Staff section in dealing with look after arrangements.

·        Ill mindset of Circle management in calculation of vacancy position of DEs in different SSA, and actual posting of DE in LA arrangements.

·        When 176 posts of DEs are vacant throughout Maharashtra Circle, the staff section counts only 85 vacancies and out of that 85 vacancies only 23 are filled, making DE LA as great Joke.

·        Giving list of 38 officers working as DE Illegally in different SSAs, calls for fresh look on the vacancy position and alternative arrangements to meet the shortages of DEs in different SSAs

·        With wrong interpretation of DE LA & DE Regular promotions, four SDEs already working as DE LA have been denied their right by excluding their names in  DE LA orders and compulsions are created on them for working under juniors.

·        When about 38 SDEs are working illegally as DE LA with local orders of SSA/Unit Heads, the circle management continues with its Mechanical approach by counting DE posts of rational basis.

·        This happens when BSNL has to pay nothing to executives in this temporary arrangement and on the contrary BSNL benefits by giving higher responsibility to executives.   

·        Points out how the SDEs are compelled to work in capacity of DGMs even though they are not eligible to work in DE LA and how one SDE is compelled to be part of Purchase Committee of Telecom factory when it should be DGM level officer or minimum AGM level Officer.

·        Points about poor approach of management wherein SDEs far juniors are compelled to work as DE LA and how three Regular DEs are kept without any work and how one of them is enjoying “Sound Sleep” during duty hours and how nothing has been done by management.

·         How one SDEs whose name doesn’t come in DE LA list is compelled to work as DE CPC (Central Procurement Cell ) dealing with crores of rupees dealings with procurement of stores/equipments for entire Maharashtra circle.

·        Points the controversy that SDEs working as DE LA with local orders continues to work as DE LA without break and how SDEs working as DE LA are revered as SDE on completion of 180 days.

·        How the request of many of SSA Heads for posting additional DEs to meet administrative and functional requirement of SSA are shown dust bin and how SSA heads are compelled to issue illegal DE LA Orders locally.

·        Letter also points out how Circle Management and specially CGMT MH is biased towards such general HR issues and how CGMT MH is taking keen interest only in selected cases of his “Chamchas” and “Culprits” by violating rules and guidelines of BSNL thereby down grading dignity and respect of post of CGMT MH.  

·         How Executives who are in need of reliving are not relived and executives who are not in need of transfers are compulsorily relieved without any human approach.

·        Letter appeals CGMT MH to come out of wrong feedback from His Chamchas and culprits leaders and deal all HR issues in unbiased approach.

·        Appeals CGMT MH to have fresh look at DE LA arrangements and take timely corrective action in this matter and all other pending HR issues.

31 JAN 15: Meeting with ED/finance: CHQ President Com. G.L.Jogi,  and AGS, Com Daihya, met ED/finance MS Sujata Ray and elaborately discussed following important issues relating to Telecom Finance personnel:

A.  Proposed amendment of BSNLMS RRs of telecom finance: We informed ED/finance that telecom finance personnel continue to be grossly discriminated against because of inordinate delay in amending RRs to bring them at par with Telecom Engg. and that this discrimination is unfair, unwarranted and completely unacceptable to this Association. Simply because   Board/directors from DOT want HR plan to be finalized by BSNL and for that reason they are vetoing the proposed amendment is totally unreasonable and irrational. ED/Finance, while acknowledging our serious and genuine concern on this issue, maintained that this issue has to be dealt by the BSNL/Board and that she is broadly in agreement to push through the proposed amendment in order to bring about complete parity between telecom finance and Engg. wings in so far as RRs are concerned. However, she advised us to discuss the issue with concerned officers and assured us of her support on this issue. We will be very shortly discussing this issue with Board of Directors from DOT and CMD/BSNL, urging upon them to immediately end this discrimination by enhancing the percentage of STS posts to be filled up on regular basis from existing 50% to 75%. We assure our telecom finance Comrades that we will pursue this issue vigorously and relentlessly till the proposed and badly delayed amendment of RRs is approved by BSNL/Board.

B.    Filling up about 250 unfilled posts of CAOs immediately: We requested ED/finance to initiate immediate action towards filling up of about 250 available posts of CAOs since large number of CAOs are getting retired and are thus being deprived of their promotion.

16 JAN 15: Meeting with Secretary, DoT on 14.01.2015: GS and CHQ President met Sri Rakesh Gargh, Sec/DoT and discussed the following issues:

A.  3G ICR pact by private operators and its impact on BSNL: Both GS and President explained the issue in detail to Sec/DoT. The case was originated as a result of the petition filed by SNEA in the Hon Delhi HC. The 3G ICR pact affects BSNL business. Also BSNL is forced to pay pan India spectrum charges, about 5000 Crores excess of other operators paid. BSNL invested huge money for infrastructure also but the other operators are providing services without having a network and no investment for network expansion. In the case of TDSAT verdict, Sri Kuldeep Singh is having conflict of interest since he has already taken a stand as CMD/DIR (OP), MTNL that 3G roaming is correct and called for tender for 3G roaming pact with other operators. Assn requested to bring these facts before the Hon SC during pleadings.

B.    Pension contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum of the pay scale as per DoPT order dated 19.11.2009: Assn pointed out that the orders of the nodal agency DoPT to implement the order on pension contribution w.e.f 01.01.2006 is not implemented in case of BSNL absorbed employees. Administrative Ministry DoT forcing BSNL to continue to pay pension contribution on maximum of the pay scale and BSNL is forced to pay about Rs 300 Crores in excess as pension contribution per year. DoPT vide letter dated 24.04.2014 communicated to the Assn that the pension contribution is regulated as per the order dated 19.11.2009. After detailed discussion, Sec/DoT told us to give a note in this regard.
