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.

C.   BSNL and MTNL Merger: Assn requested Sec/DoT to address the contentious issues before a decision is taken on merger. The huge market liability of Rs 11,000 Crores for MTNL will sink BSNL also if it is merged with BSNL without taking over the liability by the Govt. Issues like Seniority, pay disparity, pay scales and disinvest of MTNL etc to be addressed before a final decision is taken. Sec/DoT assured that these issues will be taken care before a decision is taken on merger.

D.  Appointment of CMD and Directors for BSNL: Assn requested to fill up the vacant posts of CMD and Board of Directors in BSNL as a first step towards revival of BSNL. Since CMD and many Board member posts are lying vacant, policy decisions and initiatives are delaying in BSNL.  

16 JAN 15: Meeting with Sr GM(SR): GS and President met Sri Shameem Akhtar, Sr GM(SR) and held discussions on the pending issues related to membership verification like provision for a settlement on policy issues which strengthens the relations between Management and recognised Assn and end multiplicity of Assns, no of office bearers of Assn at Circle level and collection of fund other than subscription from the members. Sr GM(SR) assured that he will try to discuss these issues again in the Committee.

On membership verification, Sr GM informed that CMD already interacted with CGM/KTK and as per direction of CMD an early hearing application is moved for early hearing disposal of the case which may come at any time. The case is already come back to the original bench.

14 JAN 15: By adding four new post of DEs in Mobile Pune, AGM Staff Mumbai calls revised willingness for DE L/A arrangements and revised last date of submission of willingness is 16/01/2015. Order <<<>>>

       When more than 16 posts of DEs are being managed by local looking after arrangements in Mobile unit itself by violating guidelines issued by BSNL CO, the Circle Office has merely added four posts keeping space for continuation of illegal L/A arrangements locally and creating troubles for executives. Apart from these 16 DE vacancies in Mobile Unit, in many of SSAs, local arrangements are made for fulfilling requirement of DEs for smooth maintenance of day to day working. AGM/DEs are having different financial powers & different authorities as compared to SDEs/JTOs and needs to be given proper & legal orders for using all these authorities. It seems that vacancies of only Circle office are calculated as per actual requirement and in case of all other SSAs/Units, there is need to correct the vacancies different units as per minimum requirement.

14 JAN 15: Meeting with GM (Estt) on E2, E3 pay scales replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A: GS and both AGSs met GM(Estt) on 12.01.2015 to discuss E2, E3 pay scales and holding committee meeting. GM (Estt) told that in the last committee meeting, demand for E2 to E7 pay scales which is not part of the terms and conditions of the committee was raised by some members and the cabinet decision on MTNL has come where cabinet decided to reduce the pay scales of MTNL to that of BSNL, the question of whether E2, E3 can be implemented in BSNL is referred to DoT. Association strongly protested against this action to refer the matter back to DoT since last three years from Feb, 2012 onwards this issue is simply shuttling in the name of DoT, DPE etc. In the Committee meeting on 17.11.2014, Chairman directed GM (Estt) to refer the matter to DIR(HR)/CMD to decided on the terms of reference of the Committee but now the matter has been sent to DoT against the decision taken in the committee meeting. This is nothing but delay tactics.

We clearly told GM (Estt) that cabinet decision on MTNL is a latest development in 2014 and we are discussing about the pay revision and revised pay scales replacing intermediary scales of E1A and E2A from 01.01.2007. Whatever be the rationalization of pay scales has to happen, it will be from the next pay revision from 2017 and not from 01.01.2007. In the name of development in MTNL, there is no justification in delaying the finalization of pay scales of BSNL w.e.f. 01.01.2007. If comparison with MTNL is required, then BSNL has to consider for parity in pay from 01.10.2000 till rationalization is done.

GM (Estt) mentioned that E1 and E2 scale is already approved by BSNL Board and it is implemented in BSNL. On that GS replied that its implementation is provisional pending final decision on the pay scales for which the Committee is constituted and DoT has to approve the same. GM (Estt) further told that some section of Executives has apprehension that on implementation of E2, E3 pay scale alone, anomaly will occur as JTOs of 2001/2002 batch will reach E3 scale in 9 to 11 years where as 2005/2007/2008 batches will reaches in 4 to 6 years. It is always a fact that in any pay revision youngsters will be benefitted than the seniors but the seniors never come on the way of the future of youngsters, which is the history of trade union movement. In 1986 pay revision also, seniors pay even got reduced but they whole heartedly welcomed the up gradation of the pay scales of the JTO cadre and struggled for that. No Assn or Executive of BSNL is against extending E2, E3 pay scales to the JTO/JAOs of 2007, 2008 and later recruitments.  Assn clearly told GM(Estt) that our demand is E2 to E7 scale but due to Managements apprehension about the huge financial implication on pension contribution, at least to give relief to the JTOs of 2007 and 2008 batch and JTO/JAOs recruited after 2007, the terms of reference of the joint committee was decided as to examine the implementation of E2, E3 scale replacing intermediary Pay scales of E1A and E2A for JTO and SDE cadres keeping the other scales pending for the time being till pension contribution issue is settled.  

The latest developments show that the Management is in no mood to implement at least E2, E3 pay scales for the time being. CMD and other senior officers again and again assured us to resolve the issues through discussions in the Joint Committee but in fact the issue is referred to DoT again without any valid reason. This shows that management want to demote the cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO to E1 and E2 scales. We have no other option left other than to restart the agitation programmes which we are held in abeyance on assurances from CMD, BSNL.


14 JAN 15: Meeting with GM(FP): GS and both AGSs met GM(FP) and held discussions on JAO to AO promotion, AO to CAO promotion for around 230 posts, meeting of the Committee on option case of 2010 batch etc. On JAO to AO promotion, CLO raised some queries about the unassessed cases, most of them are absconding cases and it will be submitted after CLO returns from leave on 15th.

 2 JAN 15: Editorial January 2015 <<<>>>


2 JAN 15:Meeting with CMD/BSNL on E2, E3 pay scale and membership verification: GS, CHQ President and AGS Com Dahiya met Sri A. N. Rai, CMD/BSNL and held discussions on the above issues.

Assn told CMD that first time after the formation of Joint Committee, a brief meeting on E2, E3 pay scale issue was held on 17.11.2014. In that meeting Chairman and others inclined to consider E2, E3 scales for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO alone which will settle the issues of JTO/JAOs of 2007, 2008 and later recruits and the non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A if cascading effect is not there. The demand for cascading effect of pay scales upto E7 scale has been referred to CMD by the Chairman as it is not part of the original terms of reference of the committee.

CMD informed that such HR issues are not at all clearing by the Board as DoT is taking tough stand on HR issues. He suggested to consider the issue in the next pay revision in 2017. All these issues can be projected before the 3rd PRC and solution can be found. To meet the pay loss issue, 5 increments also given to the JTO/JAOs, CMD informed. The pension contribution issue also not agreed by DoT to finalise the pay sales.

Assn very strongly pleaded that BSNL cannot approach the 3rd PRC with non standard pay scales and as on today, the pay scales of JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs, the basic cadres are not finalized. So at least the revised pay scales for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO replacing E1A and E2A to be finalized soon. It cannot be postponed further. Assn also pleaded that it was agreed in March 2014 that in case DPE not agreeing for E1A and E2A and pension contribution issue is not resolved, the possibility of extending standard pay scales of E2, E3 for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO alone will be considered. So atleast this portion has to be settled immediately.  

Finally CMD agreed to consider the proposal and informed that he will direct the Chairman accordingly.

It is understood that Estt wing moved a file to DIR/CMD regarding terms of reference of the Committee as suggested by the Chairman. But surprisingly it contains some other very negative information regarding MTNL pension issue and reference on cabinet decision on MTNL issue to bring parity in MTNL pay scales with that of BSNL and in that case whether E2, E3 can be considered now or not without the clearance from DoT since it is a cabinet decision. What is the motive of such a negative note to CMD when Chairman instructed to refer only the terms of reference to CMD is not known. Other Assns also may be aware of this development. Assn is committed to ensure that JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 (2007, 2008, 2010 etc) is placed in the standard pay scales of E2 and SDE/AOs in E3 scale.

On settling the issues of E2, E3 pay scales which will give relief to the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 especially the 2007 and 2008 batch JTOs and 2010 JAO/ SRD JTOs and meet our demand for standard pay scales for the basic cadres which are facing demotion. We are in touch with other Assns in UF and awaiting the response from them. We hope that they also will respond positively to the issue of the basic cadres and especially that of the JTOs of 2007, 2008 and 2010 JAO/JTOs and they cannot take a negative stand on this important issue of standard pay scales of E2, E3 especially for JTO/JAOs of 2007, 2008, 2010 etc. The 3rd PRC is going to be formed shortly, so we have to settle the issue without further delay.

If the response from Management is not positive, we have to start the agitation which we deferred. We are watching the developments on other issues also.

On membership verification, Assn requested to expedite the court case at Banglore. It is not handled properly by the Management. On the issues to be resolved, Assn requested CMD to make necessary changes in the rules namely provision for a settlement with the recognized Assn which distinguishes the recognized Assn from other Assns, keeping the no of office-bearers at Circle level as 15 and provision for collection of fund as decided by the competent forums. Meanwhile Assn demanded to restore all the trade union facilities extended to SNEA(I) in 2004 as verification process is taking time. By May, 2015, almost one year it is going to complete after the initiation of verification process. CMD immediately spoken to GM(SR) and directed him to examine the status of court case and other issues raised by the Assn for modification and brief him.

30 DEC 14: BSNL CO issued reminder for sending VCRs, APRs & Assessment Reports for SDE Reg DPC under 67% Seniority cum Fitness Quota and now issued time schedule for submitting Screening Committee Reports and APRs. Letter <<<>>>

    It is good news for Maharashtra Comrades that with prompt & timely action by officers in Establishment Section and with keen persuasion by District Secretaries & Circle Office Bearers of SNEA (I) Maharashtra, all the APRs & VCRs were received in time by Circle Office from all SSAs and entire information of Maharashtra Circle i.e. VCRs and Assessment Sheet for this DPC has been sent to BSNL CO by speed post as well as by email on 26/12/2014 itself. Now Maharashtra Circle is ready to handover the hard copies of APRs & Assessment Sheet at any time. But unfortunately in this schedule Maharashtra Circle is given slot on last day i.e. on 28/01/2014, after period of more than one month. Further, on the same day, many of the major Circles have been given time slot which may create heavy rush in single and being last day. SNEA (I) MH will take up matter for allotment of early time slot/schedule for submission of hard copies of this information by Maharashtra Circle.   


29 DEC 14: Cheating on name & fame of BSNL continues now on name of Recruitment of “Telecom Assistants” in BSNL call centres: The fraudulent persons continue to cheat public by using name and fame of BSNL. Earlier these culprits have targeted Doctors on name of Medical treatments of BSNL employees and benefits to their hospitals, then to landlords for leasing out land for constructions of BSNL towers and now on name of recruitment of TTAs in BSNL.   Bogus Appointment letter <<<>>> 

·        These culprits apply one after other ideas for cheating public by using name & fame of BSNL and trapping innocents in their net.

·        In this new concept, the needy persons are being trapped with such bogus calls on some known information of BSNL and here also same method may be used by bogus issuing call letters even on letter pad of BSNL with stamp & signature and post of Dy GM Pers Delhi

·        In an appointment letter dated 18/12/2014 issued to one Mr. Akash Meshram, directly on name of Dy General Manager Personal BSNL without name but with Signature, Stamp & bogus Office Address at D-27, Connaught Place, Inner Circle, New Delhi it is informed that the person will be recruited on permanent post of Telecom Assistant and it is informed that person appointed will be provided laptop, Mobile Handset with sim card and dress code. To go ahead with job one has to undergo 25 days training and thereafter joining letter will be issued and for joining one has to deposit Rs. 5800 as Security deposit and it is assured that this amount will be refunded after completion of said 25 days training.

·        It is specifically stressed that security deposit is to be deposited in Bank Account of BSNL on name of authorised Financer Officer of BSNL. This letter assures for different existing and non existence allowances and insurances to recruited person. 

·        It is important that name of BSNL is misused for cheating public openly and unfortunately no action is taken for any misuse by BSNL authorities at any level. There needs to be have special unit to keep watch on such misuse of BSNL name and authority and stop harassment & cheating of public, unfortunately nothing is seen for last 4-5 years and culprits use to trap & cheat innocent public on name of BSNL, thereby spoiling image of BSNL.  

·        If we look at small advertisements in many of the newspapers it is seen that there are many works and vacancies in BSNL, but unfortunately BSNL management does not know about it. 

·        In earlier occasions also SNEA(I) has taken initiatives against such cheatings and our comrades of SNEA(I) Kalyan have played vital role in stopping such cheating of doctors by culprits and by action of alerts comrades one person was arrested and since then the cheating of doctors has been reduced rather stopped at least in Maharashtra Circle.

·        But thereafter funda of leasing private land was raised and call centre same was also raised & defeated by SNEA (I) by directly calling concerned phone numbers and making them clear that such bogus letters have been taken note seriously and they will have to face action for such misleading and cheating ideas and since then we have not received much complaints on leasing out land for BSNL.

·        In present case also we have called on the said numbers and at first instance it was informed that one urgent meeting is going on and please call after half an hour. When we called after half an hour, both the numbers are no reply and till now the numbers are not being replied.

·        All these facts confirm that this entire matter is cheating idea on name & fame of BSNL.

·        We have brought the facts to notice of concerned officers in BSNL and let us hope that serious note of this crime is taken by someone in BSNL at competent position and action is taken against misuse of BSNL name, fame, letter pad, logo and fraudulent signatures which are crimes in eyes of law. 

·        Only positive we employees and executives of BSNL can take from this is that the value, prestige & importance of BSNL till continues and note that if  many of the culprits are able to earn lakhs & Crores of rupees just by using name of BSNL, many of the vendors and partners of BSNL are earning Crores from and on name of BSNL and we the permanent stakeholders of BSNL should understand the values of services and job we own  and devote more on BSNL works as we have got best opportunity to serve in this company, owned by Govt of India.

·        All comrades are requested to take note of it and take timely care by bringing awareness among the general public, friends & relatives so that no one comes in trap of such culprits and be part to stop misuse of name of BSNL by best possible ways.

23 DEC 14: AGM M&S CFA Mumbai endorsed the letter issued by BSNL CO for revision of landline & CDMA Pulse rate w.e.f. 01/01/2015.  Letter <<<>>>

          It is most unfortunate that while there is no change in calls to be made to network of other Private Operators, there is increase by 33.33 % in call rates  which will be made to BSNLs own network  and there will be increase by 50% on calls to be made from BSNLT to MTNL Mumbai& Delhi Network. This is how our authorities at BSNL are away from the actual requirement of the landline customers. It is fact that many of the BSNL landline customers are surrendering landline mainly due to heavy rental and now this increase in call rates on its own network will not benefit BSNL but it will have reverse effect and there will be many fold impact increasing number of landline & CDMA surrender cases. From such decesions, it is seen that BSNL management has decided to close its own and basic services on which crores of rupees have been invested by BSNL & now investing by adding NGN switches with expenditure of hundreds of crores. This is really serious matter and SNEA (I) MH will take up this matter with concerned authorities.

          All District Secretaries, Circle office Bearers, Activists, Officers  & Staff can send their views & comments with details to Com. S.R.Kalmegh ACS (East) SNEA (I) MH by email or sms/call on Mobile No. 9422857071.    


22 DEC 14: Complete collapse of Regulatory Mechanism in BSNL deliberately engineered and carefully planned by top BSNL Management to facilitate private operators squeeze and wreck havoc with resources of BSNL. Allowing private operators to have cake walk in 3 G ICR case in Supreme Court classic instance of BSNL Management compromising legitimate business interests of the Company at a time when it is profusely bleeding:
The move to systematically demolish a once robust regulatory mechanism in BSNL started nearly four years before and today it is non- existent. Systematically demolishing Regulatory Mechanism of such a gigantic telecom company was a well calculated and planned strategy of top BSNL Management with ulterior and dubious motives to allow private operators to have a free ground vis-a-vis eating into the revenues of BSNL and they have succeeded in their sinister designs. Regulatory mechanisms are today the nerve centres of telecom service providers and BSNL is having nothing such as regulation today. Nothing means really nothing. This deserves strongest condemnation of BSNL Management for allowing continuance of a situation where private operators have a free and unhindered walk by eating into the vitals of the Company and are allowed to jeopardize   legitimate business interests of the Company wilfully. These are the credentials of BSNL Management. What a pity. How management is directly contributing deliberately towards disaster of the Company.

Director (CM)/BSNL must and has to own total responsibility and must be taken to severe task for serious, unpardonable and deliberate lapse of allowing Private Operators to have a free run in 3G ICR case in Supreme Court Vis-a-Vis BSNL: Since 90% of the regulatory issues relate to wireless segment of the business, Director(CM), with nearly more than a one and a half year in the saddle now, should have taken immediate action to ensure that a robust and vibrant regulatory mechanism is put in place. Despite persistent pleadings by this Association to take immediate action to have a robust regulatory mechanism in place, Director (CM) took just no action and the result of all this was that BSNL was not represented in the Supreme Court recently in the most important case of 3G ICR case recently and obviously Supreme Court did not stay the order of TDSAT to allow private operators to roam in 3G segment through illegitimate ICR pacts. Who pays for the massive losses that BSNL is suffering from in 3G segment because of cartelization by Vodafone, Idea and Airtel?  We have good reasons to conclude that top BSNL Management has been part and parcel of facilitating this cartelization and allowing private operators to encroach upon 3G business of BSNL through illegitimate ICR pacts and eat into resources of BSNL. From the discussions with top management of BSNL, it appears as if this is not even an issue for them. We did not expect action from previous Director (CM) for very obvious reasons, but new Director (CM) on whom huge expectations hinged has disappointed and betrayed the trust of the Company by allowing its interests to be compromised. Will Director (CM), instead of acting in a bureaucratic way, be proactive, tough and take actions on the ground that lead to tangible results. It is high time for young Director (CM) to introspect and initiate serious and meaningful initiatives that restore his credibility. Director (CM) should be conscious of the fact that for the first time potential wireless segment of the Company has gone into the red and he has to own up responsibility and must be held accountable for this debacle. 

The beginning of all this should be to immediately have a very strong, lively and vibrant Regulatory Mechanism in the Company where people having complete knowledge of very complex issues relating to telecom policy regimes, networking, regulatory policy frameworks, IUC, telecom traffic flows, tariff structures are posted. Let the present mechanism which is non- existent be done away with as quickly as possible. Heads would have rolled over for such a lapse in a private enterprise.


22 DEC 14: Meeting with CMD / BSNL: CHQ president, AGS, Com Dahiya, CS/TN and CS/BSNL CO met CMD on 19-12-2014 and conveyed strongest resentment of the Association because of deliberate failure of BSNL Management to let allow private operators to have a free go in the Supreme Court in the 3G ICR case since BSNL was not represented and naturally Supreme Court did not stay the operation of TDSAT judgement to allow private operators to offer 3G services through illegitimate ICR pacts. Even though DOT pleaded for interim injunction on the operation of the TDSAT Judgement, but it did not cut much ice with the Court since 3G business of BSNL is adversely impacted through such illegitimate policy breaches. This plea cannot be put forth by DOT since it is a licensor/policy enforcer and it has to restrict its arguments to policy breaches. BSNLs 3G business is impacted and violation of this breach of policy is affecting 3G business of BSNL only. BSNL had exclusive locus standi to pitch this argument but since it was not represented, Supreme Court did not stay order of TDSAT and private operators had naturally a free run which was facilitated by BSNL Management, we informed CMD.

          We also informed CMD that critical Regulatory Mechanism in BSNL is collapsed and is non-existent today. Immediate action needs to be taken to put in place a very robust and lively Regulatory Mechanism to take care of critical and very intricate regulatory issues which have become extremely significant and relevant in present day telecom scenario, we urged upon CMD. It is really very sad and unfortunate that BSNL, which once had a very tough and viable regulatory mechanism to defend its interests in various Courts, today has nothing like regulation, we apprised CMD. CMD assured that he would act immediately on this important issue.


22 DEC 14: Meeting with Director (CM): CHQ president, AGS Com Dahiya, CS/TN and CS/BSNL CO met Director (CM) on 19-12-2014 and conveyed to him also serious resentment of the Association over the lapse of BSNL Management in not defending 3G ICR case in Supreme Court and thereby allowing private operators to have their way on such an important issue. We reminded Director (CM) that, since 90% of the regulatory issues pertain to CM wing, it was prime responsibility of Director (CM) to ensure that a very robust regulatory mechanism exists to defend policy and regulatory issues in various courts. We also reminded him that on several occasions in the past, this Association requested his intervention on this important issue but nothing really happened.

Finally, we once again urged upon him to take action on war footing to put in place a very formidable and sound Regulatory Mechanism in the Company since more than 90% of regulatory issues relate to wireless segment. We also suggested that Regulatory wing of BSNL should be under direct control of Director (CM). We were assured of a very quick response.

20 DEC 14: Contempt case relating to repatriation ITS in Hon'ble HC of Delhi: DOT came under scathing fire from Hon'ble HC of Delhi for its blatant and deliberate violation of the Judgement of Hon’ble High Court regarding repatriation of ITS. Hon’ble HC severely reprimanded and came down heavily on the counsel appearing for DOT for its naked manipulations in implementing the judgement of HC.

Hon’ble Court, short of passing a formal order for breach and contempt of its Judgement delivered by Hon’ble High Court in March, 2012 regarding repatriation of ITS, came very close to terming the actions of DOT as amounting to contempt of Court. At one point of time, the Hon’ble bench asked DOTs counsel to immediately and personally summon Secy/DOT to the Court to explain the conduct and actions of DOT in completely breaching implementation of the Judgement of the Court and persistently misleading the Court regarding its implementation.

However, after painstaking pleadings and explanation by DOTs counsel and his assurances to the Hon’ble Court that necessary corrective actions would be initiated towards implementation of the judgement in letter and spirit, the matter was posted to 5th March, 2015. What is extremely important is that Hon’ble High Court felt completely convinced and satisfied, after detailed arguments by counsel of SNEA (I) that DOT has perpetrated clear breach of Judgement amounting to contempt. The stand of this Association towards ITS repatriation is undoubtedly getting vindicated.  


19 DEC 14: AGM Staff Mumbai issued orders for Tenure Transfers of JTOs for Quarter Ending December 2014. Order <<<>>>

13 DEC 14: Meeting with CMD/BSNL:  CHQ President along with both AGSs met CMD and apprised him in detail on the need of BSNL to get impleaded in Supreme Court on 3G ICR roaming issue on which Supreme Court has admitted SLP of DOT and issued notices to Airtel, Vodafone and Idea. We reminded CMD that SNEA took the first step of filing a writ petition in Delhi High court in Nov 2010 challenging 3G ICR roaming pacts on the ground that such illegitimate pacts were forbidden by policy and directly jeopardized business interests of BSNL in 3G segment. Only after WP of SNEA was admitted by Delhi High Court and notices were issued to DOT by High Court did DOT issue notices to Airtel, Vodafone and Idea asking them to stop providing of 3G services in areas where they did not have spectrum and license through illegal ICR roaming pacts. We informed CMD that BSNL should get impleaded in the case now in Supreme Court to defend its 3G business interests which were encroached upon illegitimately by Airtel, Vodafone and Idea through ICR pacts and seek appropriate compensation for huge losses that 3G business of BSNL suffered due to such illegitimate 3G pacts and breach of policy. We also apprised CMD that DOT would only seek imposition of penalties on Airtel, Vodafone and Idea because of blatant breach of policy and will not raise the issue of huge losses suffered by BSNL. The issues of losses suffered by BSNL because of breach of policy would have to quantified and raised by BSNL only. After detailed discussion, CMD, while appreciating our concern and stand, asked us to have further discussions with Director (CM) regarding BSNL getting impleaded in Supreme Court. However, Association is seriously considering of getting impleaded in Supreme Court in SLP filed by DOT challenging judgment of TDSAT allowing providing of 3G services through ICR pacts.


13 DEC 14: Meeting with Member Services/DOT: CHQ President along with both AGSs met M(S)/DoT and apprised him in detail on the issue of pension contribution by BSNL to Govt. M(S) was informed that BSNL in accordance to the orders of DOP&T needs to pay pension contribution to Govt. on actual basic pay, not on maximum of scale. In this connection, we cited the letter of DOP&T addressed to GS/SNEA (I) wherein it is adequately clarified by DOP&T that BSNL must pay pension contribution on actual basic as is being done by other Central Govt. Departments. We informed M(S) of our discussions with concerned officers in DOP&T and DOP&PW on this issue and their stand that BSNL like other Central Govt. Departments has to pay pension contribution on actual basic instead of on maximum of scale as is being done as of now. We requested M(S) of his intervention in sending the issue to DOP&T to obtain their views. M(S), while stating that he was not aware of the issue, assured that he would examine the issue and take further action.


13 DEC 14: Meeting with Member(Finance)/DOT: CHQ President and both the AGSs have had very heated exchange of views with M(F)/DOT on the issue of pension contribution by BSNL on actual basic, instead of on maximum that BSNL is being forced to pay by DOT. We told M (F) in very clear terms that this Association completely disagrees with her perception that BSNL make pension contribution on maximum of scale. The stand of DOT in forcing BSNL to make pension contribution on maximum of scale is arbitrary and in total contravention of letter written by DOP&T to GS/SNEA (I). We also informed M (F) about the positive stand of the concerned officers in DOP&T on the issue and their concrete assurances that once the matter is referred to DOP&T by DOT, DOP&T would take a very positive view in keeping with its orders of 2009. 
However, M (F) maintained that unless DOP&T directly conveys to DOT its stand on pension contribution by BSNL, DOT would not take further action and refer the matter to DOP&T for further clarification. However, after further discussions, M (F) finally agreed to consider referring the matter to DOP&T for further clarification if the issue is referred to DOT by BSNL management.   


13 DEC 14: In a letter addressed to Circle Heads, BSNL CO clarified that employees joined after 31/07/2014 are not covered under GSLI and instructed not to recover GSLI subscription from salary of employees joined after 31/07/2014 till further instructions on this subject.. Letter <<<>>>

If it is materialised, it will be sufficient to meet the immediate requirements.

For long terms expansion, Phase VIII is planned in four stages. In the first stage, focus will be given on Wi-Fi hot spots in all major locations. In the second stage, focus will be on data service and core equipment expansion like GGSN, SGSN will be taken up. In the 3rd stage, sharing of active infra like BTS with other operators will be taken up so that coverage can be increased without much capital investment. In the fourth stage, focus will be for expansion of mobile network in the locations which are not covered by sharing etc.

On SIM tender, the tender called by BSNLCO is cancelled due to vigilance complaint. After this, Circles are directed to go for limited tender for immediate requirement. To facilitate this, the financial power of CGM is increased from 2.5 lakhs to 25 lakhs.

25 Nov 14:Meeting with CMD:

CHQ president along with both the AGSs met CMD and discussed following issues.

A)CMD was informed about disinformation campaign being spearheaded that BSNL is entirely responsible for slow broad band penetration and that BBNL should be entrusted with the job of providing high speed internet to consumers directly. In this connection, Association apprised CMD about meeting recently chaired by MOC&IT wherein he directed top officials of DOT to draw a blueprint to convert BBNL from a business to business enterprise to business to consumer enterprise. CMD was apprised about very serious consequences of this unwarranted move of MOC&IT to reduce BSNL to rubbles. Association pleaded with CMD to convey very strongly to MOC&IT that BSNL is in no way responsible for very poor high speed internet penetration to dispel this impression as quickly as possible. Association will take recourse to very tough organizational actions in case MOC&IT continues his unwarranted diatribe against BSNL in order to push through ulterior motives of the Government to sell BSNL to vested interests on false and unfounded grounds of BSNL not being able to live up to its commitment of providing high speed broadband in rural areas. MOC&IT must instead focus to address chronic policy paralysis which is adversely impeding growth of BSNL and has got worse since taking over of present MOC&IT.


B)Association requested and urged upon CMD to immediately direct concerned officers to issue re allotment orders of recently   promoted regular STS officers in case of TN and CH/TD. CMD assured that orders of re allotment to TN and CH/TD would be issued in a day or two. We expressed our gratitude to CMD.

20 Nov 14: Confirmation of JAO in Maharashtra Circle: BSNL CO issued clarification to Circle Heads & Circle IFAs that on completion of probation period confirmation orders of JAOs including JAOs on deputation to other Circles to be issued by Appointing authority thereby Recruiting Circle. Letter <<<>>> 

This was the issue referred by SNEA (I) Maharashtra to SNEA (I) CHQ as FC Section of Maharashtra under direct control of Mrs. Marina George Sr GM Fin Mumbai has taken stand that the confirmation will be issued by BSNL CO and no action was initiated for confirmation of JAOs even after request from individual comrades. On the contrary in reply to letter issued by BSNL CO it is intimated that 58 JAOs are to be confirmed and nothing is mentioned about action being taken for confirmation or any clarification required on this subject. Hope with clarification at least this shameful act will be corrected and all 58 JAOs will be confirmed in time bound manner without creating further confusion as BSNL CO has given deadline for completion of confirmation of all JAOs and compliance thereof as 01/12/2014. This is one of the examples of careless approach by FC section under direct control of Sr GM Fin Mumbai.

SNEA(I) MH conveys sincere thanks to Com. K. Sebastin GS & Com. Vivek Wankhede AGS CHQ for prompt action and getting clarification issued on this important issue which has given way for confirmation of JAOs working in Maharashtra Circle that to be in timebound manner.


20 Nov 14: Meeting with GM(FP): GS and AGS Com Vivek Wankhede, met GM(FP) on 18.11.2014 and discussed JAO to AO promotion and confirmation of JAO 2010 batch for completing the DPC work. The DPC proposal is still under the consideration of BSNL Management. On confirmation, GM (FP) agreed that it cannot be linked with promotion when juniors are already confirmed and considering for promotion. Further on confirmation of JAO 2010 batch, GM (FP) assured that direction will be issued shortly to all the Circles to complete the job by Circles itself as confirmation is in the domain of recruiting Circles. Some Circles written to BSNLCO for issuing confirmation orders by BSNLCO.

18 Nov 14: Meeting of the Joint Committee on E2, E3 pay scale and CPSU cadre hierarchy:  Discussions held on implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy. Finally it is decided to continue the discussions after 15 days in which Assns will give a presentation. The official side will study the financial implications if any on the issue. On implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 for JTOs, SDEs and equivalent cadres, the official side was inclined to consider E2, E3 pay scales for JTOs, SDEs etc replacing E1A and E2A if there is no cascading effect to other scales from E3 onwards. On the demand for implementation of standard pay scales from E2, E3 to E7, Chairman told that this is not the mandate of the committee and if E2 to E7 has to be discussed, it has to be brought to the notice of Management as it is having huge financial implications. The mandate is limited to E2, E3 for JTOs, SDEs and equivalent cadres in place of non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A. Further DoT also to be consulted since pension issue is involved. If Management agrees to modify the mandate to the committee, it will be discussed further. Chairman directed GM (Estt) to take up the matter with DIR and CMD and get the feedback. All the members of the Joint Committee except GM (SR) was present in the meeting. GS and AGS represented SNEA (I).

14 Nov 14:JTO to SDE seniority case at Hon CAT, Ernakulam: The arguments in the OA continued for more than 3 hours today and concluded at 5.50 PM. Judgment is reserved. Since the Hon division bench is not sitting next week and the same member will not be available next time, the arguments went up to 5.50 PM to conclude. One Administrative member was deputed from Hon CAT, Banglore to Ernakulam just for this week. Our Assn took the lead in all aspects and our pleading with BSNL to file an MA in addition to our MA for allowing BSNL to go ahead with promotions, helped in listing the case for early hearing. Originally the case was posted to 17.11.2014 but division bench is not available on that day. In Chennai also, SNEA only became party and defended the case properly.


14 Nov 14: JAO to AO Promotion Status: After continuous persuasion of SNEA (I), JAO 2010 batch has been now included in JAO to AO promotion in the same DPC. The 2010 SC, ST JAOs will get promotion and the orders will be issued in two sets in compliance of court judgment. First for JAOs of 2003 and 2004 batch and second for JAOs of 2006, 2007 & 2010 (only SC, ST) batch. Inclusion of 2010 batch with SC, ST quota happened only after the intervention of SNEA (I). We will pursue the DPC for the remaining vacancies also.


14 Nov 14: In a positive initiative by Finance wing to make early payments of Leave Encashment of Retired Employees, GM Fin Mumbai issued instructions for keeping Xerox copies of leave records in Service Book before sending service books to the Pension Cell and the calculation of leave encashment on basis of this Xerox data & ERP data. Letter <<<>>>

Though letter is issued on name of GM Fin Mumbai it is not signed copy and we have doubt about the proper response from IFAs on unsigned instructions on very important matter related to money of retired employees.  If these instructions are implemented properly, all the employees will get Leave Encashment on the last day of the month after their retirement and hence this is very positive step.


14 Nov 14: While calling for willingness specially for All India Soft Tenure stations in Bihar Circle, BSNL CO clarified that about all the facilities available for All India Hard Tenure Stations are available on posting to All India Soft Tenure Stations and only difference is in Tenure Period which is of two years for Hard Tenure Stations and three years for Soft Tenure Stations.

13 Nov 14: JTO to SDE seniority case at Hon CAT, Ernakulam: Preliminary arguments started today. Our senior lawyer pleaded for allowing BSNL to go ahead with promotions but bench was not inclined to modify the interim order at this moment.

12 Nov 14: Restrictions on International Tours by Govt Officers: Department of Expenditure, Govt Of India, issued instructions restricting all Govt Officers from International Travel/Tour on Government Expenses and if such tour is sponsored by inviting organisations in Public Interest & Government Business at Home the maximum period allowed is four days in Calendar  year. Letter <<<>>>

It is important that para 4 of letter clearly says that these guidelines are also applicable to PSUs/PSEs. Let us hope that these guidelines will be implemented by BSNL not only for international Travels /Tours but such restrictions of maximum tour period in Calendar year needs to be strictly implemented in BSNL as presently this official tour facility is being misused by some of officers by converting personal tours in official tours by arranging some official meetings at the tourist locations. We have already witnessed that some meetings of Corporate level have been arranged at locations like Pune, just to make it convenient to all the officers to be present in marriage of daughter of one of officer working BSNL. Not only this, but one Official Management meeting of WTP was arranged away from HQ Mumbai to tourist place Goa and shamelessly along with family members Not only tours, but many of the official vehicles are being used for totally personal business from dropping school going kids, grandsons/daughters in schools even to colleges, family visits at Shopping malls, Cinema Theatres or even site seeing of the families & friends of such selfish officers. Many of us have witnessed that many of on job wards of such selfish officers working in private firms or other organisations are using BSNL vehicles for their office journey. It is unfortunate that responsible authorities in BSNL are keeping eyes closed for such open eye misuse as they also did not have moral to set such misuse right.  This is one of the reasons for the present condition of BSNL and it is not still understood by management and even if understood, there is no courage in any of the responsible officers to stop all this day light misuse.Anyhow this is ray of hope for BSNL for putting restrictions on maximum tours in calendar year and restrictions on misuse by conversion of personal visit in official tours harassing all the officers to be present in meeting even on holidays and definitely on misuse use of vehicles for personal works.

27 Oct 14: News from SNEA(I) CHQ on Recommendation of TRAI on Spectrum Issue: GS writes to Hon. MoC & IT regarding the Recommendation of TRAI to force BSNL to surrender 1.2 MHz spectrum in premium 900 MHz band to protect vested interest of private operators to cripple strategic telecom company of the Country perverse and motivated, deserving unequivocal condemnation.

This Association unequivocally denounces and condemns the retrograde recommendation of TRAI asking BSNL to surrender 1.2 mhz in premium 900 mhz band and earmarking it for private operators in the upcoming auctions. Nexus of present Chairman / TRAI with private operators is so naked and deplorable that he goes on to the extent of snatching 1.2 mhz in premium 900mhz band from BSNL and offering 1.2 mhz in redundant band of 1800 mhz to ensure that private operators are in a position to offer premium services and reduce BSNL to rubbles.

This role of Chairman/TRAI reminds us of a corrupt ex Chairman/Trai, Pradeep Baijal, who played havoc with BSNL by arbitrarily phasing out ADC. Later on it was revealed that he had a deep rooted nexus with private operators at whose instance he abolished ADC and thereby crippled BSNL. Let us get ready and fully expose present Chairman/Trai and his actions to protect vested interest of private operators at the cost of BSNL. Rahul Khullar is trying to dig last nail in the coffin of BSNL and has virtually made up his mind to consign BSNL to flames.

Get ready to expose Rahul Khullar on the streets of the Country for trying to destroy Country’s most strategic and prestigious Telecom Company.

21 Oct 14: By taking note of unawareness among BSNL’s own executives observed by CGMT MH about 54141 services & displeasure thereof, DGM S&M Mumbai issued orders for awareness about 54141 services among BSNL executives. Letter  <<<>>>

However, here it seems that DGM S&M Mumbai has forgotten to give brief idea about the 54141 sms services available for customers and that’s reason why BSNL executives are not aware about such useful and customer friendly services offered by BSNL. It has been mentioned in this letter to have test sms by all executives on 54141 on routine & regular basis and reason given is awareness among the executives.

This is customer friendly facility provided by BSNL, wherein customer in need of any telecom services from BSNL will not have to approach BSNL office personally and customer in need of BSNL services has to just send sms on 54141 if he is using BSNL mobile or on 9400054141 if customer is using mobile other than BSNL with short code for concerned services. On receipt of such sms, BSNL representative will visit to the customer premises for different services and complete all related formalities for providing services required by the said customer.


21 Oct 14: Meeting of JAC Maharashtra with Shri. M.K. Jain, CGMT MH: As decided in the special meeting of Joint Action Committee, Maharashtra Circle on implementation of Deloitte recommendations, Circle Secretaries, CHQ & Circle leaders from different Unions & Associations had special and urgent meeting with Shri. M. K. Jain, CGMT MH in his chamber at 1630 Hrs on 20/10/2014. The delegation submitted memorandum of JAC Maharashtra protesting implementation of Deloitte recommendations & its arbitrary implementation in Maharashtra Circle. Copy of Memorandum   <<<>>>

Shri. M. K. Jain, CGMT MH speared time from his busy schedule and granted meeting JAC to have discussions with Deloitte recommendations and implementation of Area office Concept in Maharashtra Circle. CGMT MH went through the entire memorandum word by word before start of discussions. Thereafter initiating discussions, he explained the steps taken by his office on this issue from the date of receipt of Deloitte Committee recommendations by his office and response to reminders issued by BSNL CO.

JAC MH brought to notice of CGMT MH that the letter issued by BSNL CO reads that Deloitte recommendations are being implemented in Maharashtra Circle only due to his recommendations as CGMT and objected on such recommendations affecting working of BSNL Maharashtra Circle. Shri. Jain, CGMT MH made it clear that his office has not given any recommendations and his office letter dated 20/09/2014 referred in BSNL CO orders for pilot implementation of Deloitte in Maharashtra, does not recommend anything and these are just comments as asked by BSNL CO after HOCC Meeting and his office has responded after reminders from BSNL CO. He further added that   nothing has been specially recommended on his part or on part of Maharashtra Circle. However he made it clear that he has received call from GM Restructuring BSNL CO on this subject and has discussed implementation of Deloitte recommendations in Maharashtra Circle. CGMT further informed that in HOCC Meeting also it was decided that Deloitte recommendations will not be implemented as it is in BSNL and decision will be taken after pilot implementation in some of Circle and results thereof. In this case BSNL CO has selected Maharashtra Circle as pilot and he has given consent for same.

We brought to notice of CGMT that report says that these recommendations are to be implemented after 2016 as First phase i.e. after total ERP Rollout & how Circle management has agreed for its implementations before rollout of ERP. CGMT MH said that ERP has been fully implemented in Maharashtra Circle at least on papers and agreed that there are many unresolved issues with ERP in Maharashtra Circle and under administrative compulsions he has given consent.

We then asked why in each and every such experiments only Maharashtra Circle is taken as pilot, right from CDR to Deloitte and why BSNL management is not looking at other Circles for any such experiment. We also pointed out that if ERP implementation was the only criteria then it should have been implemented in Karnataka Circle where ERP has been implemented before Maharashtra Circle. However it did not happen, as CGMT KTK has not given any such consent as given by CGMT MH. JAC MH registered strong objection on selection of Maharashtra as pilot at each and every occasions and CGMT MH also agreed to our views and added that he has witnessed bad impact of such experiments in Maharashtra Circle.

We had detailed discussions on merger of smaller SSAs with bigger SSAs and mainly asked about availability of officers of GM/DGM level as recommended by Deloitte and if these many officers of GM/DGM level officers are available then what is problem in posting them as SSA Head and what is idea in centralizing them at major places and we will like to know the benefits of such centralization. CGMT expressed that he has no detail idea about benefits and his office has just submitted comments on HR issues as called by BSNL CO. As no comments were called by BSNL CO on remaining recommendations submitted by Deloitte in its 572 pages report, his office has not taken any decision on implementation of any other recommendations of Deloitte.      

We brought to his notice that all the Unions and Associations are opposing Deloitte recommendations since its submission in BSNL. We also asked why his office has not consulted Unions/Associations in Maharashtra Circle before sending his special recommendations cum comments on this subject to BSNL CO. He explained that till the day he got sms from CS SNEA(I) MH, he was not aware about the oppose of Deloitte recommendations by Unions & Associations and whatever steps have been taken by his office are routine and nothing has been done special for it. He also added that none of representative of Deloitee has discussed any of the issue with him at any time and may have discussed with earlier CGMT. He said that it was not question of he likes or dislike Deloitte recommendations, but it was official procedure as per information/comments called by BSNL CO which were sent by Add GM HR/Admn Mumbai with his approval.

CGMT MH further added that now he has understood the unrest and oppose from all Unions and Associations for Deolitte recommendations and he immediately marked JAC memorandum to Sr GM HR/Admn & Addl DGM HR/Admn for reprocessing file by adding views expressed by JAC. He assured JAC Delegation that his office will write a letter to BSNL CO in changed scenario & difficulties in implementation of Area Office concept in Maharashtra Circle. He also expressed that no one has brought to his notice that there is oppose in implementation of Deloitte recommendations from Unions /Associations, hence he has never thought from different angle and everything was taken as routine matter, and hence there is some confusion.

We also requested CGMT MH to express his views & experience as GMT when he was handling charge of two SSAs and was he able to give attention & proper justification to second SSA attached to him as additional charge wherein he clarified that it is not possible to take care of all issues in both the SSAs to proper depth and second SSA is always given second priority. When asked for his personal views about SSA Merger, he made it clear that he also finds that merger of SSAs in this manner will not give results as expected by Deolitte.

On arbitrary changes made by Maharashtra Circle in these original Deloitte recommendations, CGMT MH informed that some of recommendations of Deloitte on merger of SSAs like Dhule with Kalyan are found wrong and cannot be implemented practically and his office has suggested some modifications for reporting of Dhule to Nashik, some changes in merger of geographical area, shifting of PGMT post from Kalyan to Nagpur etc. He also clarified that he has already made it clear to BSNL CO that till required DGMs/GMs are not posted in Maharashtra Circle he will not implement Area Office Concept in Maharashtra Circle. 

 After listening grievances in detail and understanding practical difficulties in Merger of SSAs, Shri. M.K. Jain, CGMT MH assured to review the decision of Area Office Concept & its implementation in Maharashtra Circle and take up matter with BSNL Corporate office in view of protest by Joint Action Committee of Maharashtra Circle through meeting & memorandum submitted thereof. He also directed us to take up matter with BSNL CO through CHQ leaders and assured that if required he will have further discussions with JAC on this subject. We also assured him to give detailed feedback on this subject. This urgent Meeting concluded with positive assurance by CGMT MH to write to BSNL CO about the difficulties faced in implementation of Area office Concept in Maharashtra Circle and to have further discussions with JAC on this subject.

Editorial: October, 2014

Our struggle turns the tables decisively – revives critical frozen issues of standard scales, 30% superannuation, CPSU hierarchy and paves way for their resolution.

Critical HR issues, particularly the ones relating to young and talented folk recruited in BSNL, virtually forgotten and lying in deep frozen state for the last about two years, got a fresh lease of life through our recent struggle when BSNL Management in principle agreed to initiate continuous discussions for their resolution. Our struggle thus opened a window of opportunity for resolution of these issues which have been lying in deep slumber for a pretty long time. If BSNL Management is serious and honest enough this time to continue the dialogue in right earnestness till resolution of issues is comprehensively addressed, we, on our part, would be equally honest, if not more than BSNL Management, to maintain complete industrial peace and tranquility. If BSNL Management tries to dither and betray, the way they have done thus far, we will be as ruthless and unrelenting as anything this time.

BSNL Management has to clearly recognize and understand that resolution of issues of extending standard pay scales, 30% superannuation benefits and introduction of time bound functional promotions will go a long long way in changing the complexion and direction of the Company. Addressing these issues will surely mean correction of serious HR policy aberration that has been inordinately delayed and that will inevitably have quite significant and far reaching consequences in so far as revival of the Company is concerned.

We too do understand and recognize the constraints that BSNL faces on account of resource crunch, but we are pretty confident of coming out with very viable alternatives to offset the repercussions that BSNL Management anticipates while taking final call on these crucial issues. Besides, management will make a serious error of judgment if it undermines the huge motivational impact that resolution of these issues will have on the demoralized working force. Management should factor in the huge positive impact that resolution of these issues will undoubtedly have on resource generation and should not ignore this hard fact.

In case Management once again betrays, we are more than willing to join hand with forces that have hot and ethical blood of struggle running through their veins. If that materializes, good enough, otherwise we are quite determined and fully equipped to carry forward the struggle singlehandedly till we reach our destination of comprehensive resolution of these HR issues of paramount and strategic importance. We do have sufficient organizational capacity and resilience to take on such formidable challenges singlehandedly. Our past stands out an eloquent and unquestionable testimony to this hard reality.

At the end of the day, BSNL Management has to clearly understand that Human Resource is not garbage the way it has been treating it. If it treats talented Human Resources as garbage, end product would be surely garbage and that is clearly visible in the Company as of now. The bottom line is that Human Resource is greatest asset provided one acknowledges this underlying and irrefutable fact. Human resource has to be spotted, harnessed, trained and accordingly deployed, motivated and optimally utilized. Professional HR managers exploit HR to the hilt and convert it into goldmine. That is where professionalism In HR counts and makes a big difference between orthodox and modern innovative approach. BSNL Management continues to be captivated by deep traditionalism. We and the Company is a direct victim of this deep rooted conservatism of BSNL Management. Saddest part of the whole story is that even in this era of digital world when professional HR Managers are working day in and day out to enforce radical HR motivational policies, BSNL Management has not been able to come out of deep conservatism and move even an inch forward.

All said and done, Comrades, we wholeheartedly congratulate you for your spontaneous and overwhelming response to the recent call given by CHQ. Your enthusiasm and readiness to struggle has enthused central leadership and it added confidence and has undoubtedly opened a serious window of opportunity to reopen issues that have been lying in deep slumber for more than two years. In case BSNL Management is once again found to be wanting in its approach, we shall not lose even a minute in calling upon you to come out on the streets ruthlessly. For that, maintain complete organizational preparedness.


14 Oct 14: Update on GPF Balance: It is reliability learnt that the major hurdles in over delayed work of updating GPF balance and calculation of Interest of year 2013-14, which was held up and struck off for last six months for different reasons has been resolved. The entire work will be completed by end of this week and all employees & officers working in Maharashtra Circle will be in position to confirm their updated GPF balance with proper calculation of interest for Year 2013-14.

       It is unfortunate that correction of such manmade mistakes has taken period of six months and no doubt blame game continues among different units/sections of BSNL and ERP vendor M/S HCL. This is how BSNL is being exploited by vendors for incompetency on part of officers dealing with vendors. It was quiet possible to correct this mistake at earlier stage also and probably in April-May 2014, but unfortunately nothing happened in time and all employees and officers throughout Maharashtra Circle were kept under tension & fear of accountability of their GPF Money.              

      SNEA(I) MH  was continuously pursuing this issue & has taken up this issue at different levels and with different officers from bottom to Top and during recent visit of Shri. N. K. Gupta,  Director CFA on 26/09/2014, we have raised this issue and brought to his notice how GPF money of all employees & officers working in Maharashtra Circle including CGMT MH is unaccounted for last six months for silly mistakes and how BSNL is unable to find out what is mistake and who is responsible for it. Thereafter the matter has been given serious attention by concerned authorities and work has been started to correct mistakes by finding out actual faults and errors in processing GPF data through ERP. Anyhow, after period of six months we will be able to get account of our hard earned GPF Money & if nothing goes wrong again, within fortnight,  we will be receiving GPF Statements for Year 2013-14 with Opening balance of Year 2014-15.

10 Oct 14:Meeting with CMD: CHQ President and AGS, Com Wankhede, met CMD and sought his kind intervention and requested him to direct GM(P) to consider compassionate transfer cases, reallotment to Circles like CH, TN, KTK, MH based on the assurances given by him and also inter- Circle request transfers in accordance to transfer policy. CMD was kind enough to assure us that he will have discussion with GM (P) on all these issues. 

10 Oct 14: Meeting with GM(P)/BSNL CO: CHQ President along with AGSs, Com Dahiya and Com  Wankhede, and Com A. A. khan met GM(P) and conveyed him the strongest resentment prevailing in the field units on account of non settlement of very genuine medical cases like cancer, mentally retarded, physically handicapped etc etc. the Association in clear terms conveyed to GM(P) that there is an overwhelming feeling which is quite justified and not unfounded that Management of late has become quite insensitive and completely devoid of compassion by neglecting very justified and highly genuine cases on medical grounds which ought to be considered with compassion and on priority. GM (P) was also reminded that assurances given by him in May, 2014 that genuine medical cases would be given due consideration have been completely ignored.

         Association also registered very strong protest over non consideration of reallotment on recent promotion to regular STS to circles like Chennai, TN, MH and Karnataka where large scale disruption has taken place despite availability of good number of vacancies. GM(P) was also conveyed strong resentment of the Association over blatant breach of assurance given by CMD that in circles like Chennai, TN, KTK etc. vacancies likely to arise on account of adhoc DGM promotion would be factored into for posting of regular STS. We reminded GM (P) that despite his assurance that a fresh assessment of the whole issue would be undertaken after 29th Sept, 14, nothing has so far been done and people are suffering like anything.

Also continuing and inexplicable delay in issuing inter-circle request transfers has caused wide spread resentment particularly when such requests have been made without TA/TP and are in accordance with the provisions of transfer policy. We informed GM(P) that Association very strongly protests and opposes such arbitrary functioning of the Management where legitimate inter- circle request transfers are not being issued in accordance to transfer policy. We also drew the attention of GM(P) over abnormal and unnecessary delay in issuing the transfer orders of all those who have completed more than two years at BSNL CO and are desperately waiting for their transfer orders for the last six months.

          However, after having lodged our strongest protest over continuing and incomprehensible delay in sorting out these issues and also over arbitrary way of decision making, and after a very detailed discussion, GM(P) assured that all the cases of compassionate transfers, reallotment to Circles like CH, TN, KTK, MH etc and inter- circle transfers, including from BSNL CO, would be considered very shortly and sympathetically.

While CGM/Kerala Circle is continuing his acts of indiscriminate victimizations, there is no intervention from BSNL Management to prevail upon CGM to comply with the terms of negotiated settlement between him and our Association, with the intervention of top BSNL Management. Instead, CGM is going ahead with his acts of victimization even after negotiated settlement.

Com. Padamnabh Rao, Jt Secy/South, felt extremely weak and exhausted and police tried to shift him to govt. hospital. However, he resisted being shifted to hospital and is continuing his fast.

CGM is trying his best to get him forcibly shifted to hospital but our Kerala comrades are determined to defeat his move also.

07 SEP 14 : We condemn this act very strongly:

                     Pune admin has issued order of JTOs from Rural to Urban and vice-versa vide No: PTA/SE-12/JTO Rural Tenure/III/2012/48 Dated 01-09-2014


              What we see from the said order, only intention best known to the management is keeping mouth shut and be a mute spectators of the show. The   management has  dumped the transfer policy in order to rehabilate some of the executives. We should strongly oppose such act of management. The management have gone completely astray because of narrow consideration and affinity towards implementing the transfer orders.

                 What wrong has the executive done to the management? Only because they did not had any godfather? Or they didn't find any unfair channel to get their orders changed or get cancelled. We strongly oppose and protest to such act of management who dares to challenge with all executives fraternity.

                          We being the only association which will continuously fight against all such injustices and we will adopt all fair means to satisfy and legitimate right of executives. Comrades, it is my sincere request to all the executives to join us in this struggle against injustice and always fight for our justice. Implementation of transparent transfer policy is our motto and admin should not dare to be partial.  “We appeal to all the executives................ join us with full enthusiasm in this struggle................”
