HAPPY 69th INDEPENDENCE DAY

 

5 AUG 15: Joint Committee meeting on CPSU cadre hierarch: The Joint committee meeting held today and discussion took place for about two hours. Chairman and members from Management side proposed very stringent attendant conditions along with interview, grade of service and educational qualifications to decide the promotions. The bench mark should be minimum “Very Good” according to them even for JTO to SDE promotion.

SNEA (I) made the following submissions:

1.     The terms and conditions of absorption in BSNL ensured Time Bound promotions from JTO to SG JAG grade between 4 to 6 years with attendant conditions, without linking promotions with availability of posts. Promotions beyond SGJAG will be based on availability of posts.

2.     However in Executive Promotion Policy (EPP), the promotions are divided into two parts, I. Time bound IDA pay scale up gradations and II. Post based promotions.

SNEA (I) very strongly opposed any interview for promotions or promotions based on educational qualifications. Now thousands of Executives are working in different scales. They are getting pay scales and good pay. But due to various reasons, mainly due to litigations they are not getting functional promotion which provides higher responsibility and status. For example thousands of Executives are in Sr SDE scale (E3) but working as JTO. Similarly thousands of Executives are in DGM scale (E5) or in DE scale (E4) but still working as SDEs. Again, recently the promotions in almost all the cadres in BSNL are stayed by Hon Chandigarh Tribunal without implementing judgment on Nagaraju case on SC/ST reservation. So the new promotion policy should address the twin problems of i) seniority related issues and ii) availability of vacancies/posts as much possible and ensure smooth promotions.

The following points are to be deliberated.   

a)    Time bound functional promotion has to be implemented upto which grade, without linking it with availability of posts and minimum how many promotions can be assured. For this data can be verified to know how many Executives are working in each scale/grade.

b)    Reporting and hierarchy to be followed in the new set up and duties and responsibilities.

c)     Bench mark for each promotion to be reviewed and decided as per the present practice.

d)   Qualifying service and quantum of relaxation in service.

e)     New Designations to be introduced in BSNL.

f)      Financial implications.

a)    No of promotions: The minimum number of promotions should be maintained as 5 itself in the new scheme also.

b)    No of Executives working in each grade. Majority of the Executives are working in Telecom Engg wing. The total number is about 34,500.

c)     JTO Scale-- About 4800, SDE Scale -- About 4300, Sr SDE Scale  - About 11800, AGM Scale -- About 7800, DGM Scale --About 5200, SG JAG Scale -- About 600.

d)   Accounts – 6500, Civil – 1747, Elect: 1134,  Arch --- 147, TF --- 122, Misc – 425.

e)     Reporting, hierarchy to be followed and duties and responsibilities: Bell curve issue can be addressed by following hierarchy. Existing hierarchy to be changed (JTO -à SDE -àDE -à DGM) to JTO/SDE/Sr SDE/DE --à DGM/SG JAG -àGM -à PGM. Duties and responsibilities can be modified accordingly.

f)      Bench mark: BSNL Executives are working in different areas like External, Internal, installations, planning, offices, mobile, transmission, landline etc. The performance of the Executives are depending upon the area of their posting and availability of material, manpower, labour, stores, equipments etc. So the performance of the Executives working in various areas cannot be compared at all on the basis of APAR alone. Most of the other PSUs are in production sector and the nature of job is more or less same or comparable. They are having time tested mechanisms of performance evaluation. So the promotion mechanism in other CPSUs cannot be copied as such in BSNL at least for the time being. So the new bench mark should be finalized considering this fact as well as and the bench mark existing today for post based promotions.

g)    Qualifying service and quantum of relaxation in service: The qualifying service should be between 4 to 6 years as per the terms and condition and it should not be more than 6 years in any case.  

h)    Note: Now IDA pay scale up gradations are given on completion of qualifying service. Post based promotions are given with relaxation in service (1 year relaxation for JTO to SDE promotion where the qualifying service is 3 years). Since the pre-appointment training varies from one to two years, relaxation of qualifying service to the Executives of same rect year (in case of rect) / vacancy year (in case of promotion) also to be considered. Similar relaxation is to be considered for promotion to DE grade also for the existing Executives working at SDE/Sr SDE/DE scales. However no relaxation is required for Sr SDE grade. For the Executives who got relaxation for promotion to the SDE grade as per the new scheme, further relaxation at Sr SDE and DE grade are not required.

i)      New Designation to be followed as done in BSNLCO:

j)      After discussion, Mgt side agreed for Time Bound functional promotions to SDE and Sr SDE grades. Promotion to AGM and DGM grades on time bound basis will collapse the existing mechanism, according to the members from Mgt side. We strongly opposed this view. Discussion will continue in the next meeting on 13.08.2015, 3 PM.
