GS and FS met with GM (FP) and discussed regarding:

A. CPC from CAO to DGM (Fin.): We requested to expedite CPC from CAO to DGM (Fin.). GM (FP) mentioned that the CPC work to fill-up 247 vacant DGM (Fin.) posts has been initiated.

B. CPC from JAO to AO and AO to CAO: We requested to process the CPCs from JAO to AO and AO to CAO. GM (FP) mentioned that in the court case pending in Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh the clearance has been asked from Pers. Cell but the same is still awaited. However, he directed AGM (SEA) to issue reminder to GM (Pers.) for early clearance. We pleaded that the CPC work to promote 230 + 65 AOs to CAO posts on regular basis and 335 AOs promotion on adhoc basis against the MT quota posts was initiated one and half year before wherein all the ACRs / VCRs of the eligible AOs were collected and CPC was to be concluded but meanwhile due to court directions the promotions from AO to CAO has been restrained based on Hon'ble Supreme Court judgment in the matter of Nagaraj. BSNL is always implementing SC/ST rosters in all the promotions and till date DoPT has not endorsed the Hon'ble Supreme Court judgment in this regard. Hence, to proceed further the opinion of the Solicitor General of Govt. of India was taken. GM (Pers.) has been requested to give clearance in this regard at the earliest so that the CPC work from AO to CAO and JAO to AO can be initiated immediately. He assured to collect the ACRs / VCRs of the eligible AOs at the earliest.

C. Appointment of 34 JAOs in Kerala Circle pursuit to Hon'ble CAT orders: We extended our sincere thanks and gratitude for issuing the appointment orders in respect of 34 JAOs in Kerala Circle. GM (FP) appreciated our gesture.

D. Diversion of 50% MT quota CAO posts to seniority quota: We requested to bring in the agenda of the next BSNL Board meeting. GM (FP) assured to look into it.

Magnificent struggle of United Forum

Well Friends!!! United Forum will not comment on who is doing agitation through Website and who is doing on the groundIt is for the members to compare whether sitting on three days Hunger Fast is real agitation or converting one day Dharna into lunch hour demo and the lunch hour lasting for five minutes is real agitation. We will also not comment on the organizational ethics of the so called association who has been doing everything to derail the settlement of issues and running every nuke and corner to stop management from settling the demands of the United Forum. We also won’t comment on why it took ten days for them to publish the issues on their website as according to them everything was settled on 17thitself. Perhaps they were waiting for the final settlement with United Forum to claim the credit thereafter. Perhaps they think that members are fools and they will buy their wizard logics and unnecessary tantrums. However, we still request members to concentrate on the larger cause as indulging into unnecessary mudslinging will deviate us from our real goal. We request members to ignore the child like tantrums of the great warriors and concentrate on their work whole heartedly to overcome the losses which may have happened owing to the resentment of the executives.


The magnificent struggle of united forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA and its achievements has paved the way for the settlement of the long pending HR issues of BSNL executives and has proved the strength and importance of executives before management.

All the organisational actions i.e. demonstration, one day Dharna on 13.5.2016, day long hunger fast for three days on 25, 26, 27 may 2016 have been successfully implemented throughout the country. During the agitation, several meetings were held with BSNL management.  On 13th May, CMD called the General Secretaries of all the three Associations wherein date for the meeting was fixed as 19th May 2016 with all the three General Secretaries together. However, the GS of the friendly association held the meeting on 17th only for the reasons known to all as he was not willing to wait till 19th May 2016. In the meeting on 19th  May, Detailed discussion with CMD BSNL took place on the main issues of Standard Pay Scales, Implementation of CPSU Hierarchy, Abolishing of MT and DGM RRs, Implementation of 30% Superannuation to all DRs, conduction of CPCs, Declaration of LDCE results, consideration of Rule -8 cases and holding of recruitment drive in tenure and shortfall circles etc. Director (HR) & other HR Officers were also present in the meeting.

On the Pay scale issue, we demanded replacement of scales with promotions as per existing EPP. We explained to CMD BSNL that keeping one executive in E3 scales for 10 years just to offshoot his gain in lower scale is not at all justified. Earlier CMD was having some doubts about the demand because of wrong feeding from some corners but after listening to our arguments and submissions, CMD BSNL was convinced that whatever we are pleading is correct and keeping an executive in a scale for 10 years should not be done. He immediately directed for implementing our proposal. Establishment cell pointed out that if the proposal of United Forum is implemented, there may be lot of anomalies which can be difficult to settle afterwards. CMD BSNL told that whatever we are pleading is logical and asked what will happen if the scales are upgraded for all executives. Establishment cell pointed out that group B executive will reach E7 scales while as per EPP they can be promoted up to E6 only. Establishment cell also informed that there shall be huge financial implication on implementing this proposal. Establishment cell also pointed that with replacement of scales for all executives, there won’t be any anomalies. CMD BSNL told them that when executive are getting some benefit out of refusal by government, to snatch that benefit from executives is not good and BSNL should bear the expenses occurring as an outcome of refusal by government to implement E1A and E2A. We asked from CMD BSNL that whether the proposal which is resulting in huge financial implications can be implemented. He assured that he will get the proposal through as the financial burden is out of pension liability and the Amount will any how go to the government only. 

We also highlighted that as per current practice, the amount of pension contribution on highest basic is being paid only when the person retires and hence the burden is not immediate. However, we will go by management decisions but only thing that should be kept in mind is that replacement of E1A and E2A with E2 and E3 scales are immediate necessity as the executives joining after 1.1.2007 are facing losses in their salary and that an executive should not be made to remain in E3 scale for 10 years just because he has achieved E2 scale five years before his/her seniors. CMD BSNL again reassured that an Executive will not be kept in any scale for 10 years and he is willing to upgrade all the scales to avoid anomalies.

On the issue of implementation of KHAN COMMITTEE REPORT ON CPSU Hierarchy, CMD BSNL said that since the committee has proposed that executives may be given time bound functional promotion up to the scale of AGMs and in the DGM scale as Jt. DGM, management does not have any issue over it and the same shall be implemented as per KHAN COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS. On extending superannuation benefit, it was agreed that the quantum will be reconsidered after approval from DoT and the date of implementation shall also be reviewed with increasing financial performance by BSNL. On DGM RRs and the ongoing DGM recruitment, it was agreed that the same will be scrapped. On MT RR, Though the United Forum once again emphasized that they are against any lateral recruitment of fresher’s above JTO/JAO Equivalent, Director (HR) advised that keeping in view, the demand of other stake holders, the issue of scrapping of MT RRs may be dealt after the membership verification/referendum process of the Executive Associations and the view of the majority association shall be taken into consideration. Till that time MT recruitment shall be kept on hold. We agreed to the proposal as the action was to be taken by considering the view of the majority and if majority wants MT to be scrapped, it will be scrapped, if majority wants MT to be held, it will be heldCMD BSNL also directed HR team to take all necessary actions to expedite the CPCs and LDCE by engaging senior lawyers. On Rule-8 cases and special recruitment drive for hard tenure/short fall circles and other issues enumerated in agenda, a meeting was fixed with Director (HR) on 23rd May 2016. On 23rd May, the meeting was held with Director (HR) which continued on 24th May also where in all the demands of united forum were discussed in detail and the decisions were taken with a firm time line for implementation of the same with due commitment from all the HR Unit officers to adhere to the timelines. On 24th May 2016 evening, the meeting continued till 9:30 pm and after the decisions, the letter containing minutes of the meetings with decisions & firm timelines were prepared which was to be taken to CMD BSNL for approval. Hence, director (HR) advised us to wait in her office, while the minutes were discussed with CMD. About 10 pm GM (SR) returned after discussing with CMD BSNL and informed us that some corrections are required in the minutes of E-2 and E-3 pay scale. After corrections, we saw that there was ambiguity on the issue of number of years for the executives in E3 scale and requested to correct the letter accordingly. GM (SR) tried to contact Director (HR) but could not get her on telephone. Finally GM (SR) told that next morning of 25th May 2016, he shall discuss the matter with director (HR) and will inform us to release the decisions communicated in the meeting. ( All this while, the friendly association was on toes, running here and there to derail all these developments). However, on the inaction of the SR section to address the issue of keeping executives in E3 scale for 10 years next morning as there was no communication, we were forced to start Hunger Fast. In the evening, however, under pressure from some overzealous corners that didn’t bothered about the resolution of the issues just for the sake of credit, SR cell notified referendum and enforced code of conduct which acted as a tool for the friendly association in their quest for sabotaging the agitation and settlement of issues. On 26-5-2016 afternoon at 2.30PM, GM SR informed to attend meeting with Dir HR at 3.30pm. Dir HR in the meeting told that the minutes prepared till now can’t be issued as the notification of Executive Association has been issued and management has to maintain a level playing field. We told Director (HR) that notifying referendum was not called for at this time when the settlement of burning HR issues should have been the prime agenda. We asked if they can’t communicate the decisions then they should take action on ground as HR team will not sit idle till referendum and whether all the transfer postings are also going to be put on hold. We firmly emphasized that till clarity is not brought on the issue of keeping executives in E3 scales for how many years, we are not going to withdraw. We met CMD BSNL also and apprised him about the developments. CMD assured us to discuss the matter with Dir HR and Sr. GM legal. On 27-5-2016 again Dir (HR) called us and informed that as per legal advice, now decisions cannot be communicated formally, however they will issue a general letter stating that timelines committed with the association and decisions taken in the meeting shall be adhered to. Thereafter Director HR, issued the appeal stating that the timelines committed to the association shall be adhered to issues shall be resolved in a time bound manner.

Thereafter, in meeting with CMD BSNL, We again requested to bring clarity on the issue of number of years in which an executive shall be kept in E3 scale. After that, in another meeting with Director (HR) was held at 19:00 hours wherein she informed that CMD has approved the proposal to replace the scales of E1A with E2 and E2A with E3 and thereafter E3 to E4, E4 to E5,E5 to E6 and E6 toE7 with promotion from one grade to another in a span of Five years and no executive shall be kept in E3 scale for 10 years.When our continuous demand to not to keep executives in E3 scale for 10 years was agreed, we decided to defer our agitation.

Friends, a lot of talk has been made from the overzealous quarters about the organizational action program of United Forum and we have been able to protect the interest of the executives despite consistent hobnobbing and hand in gloves approach of the vested interests. We promise that we will keep on doing that.

Now going through their website, it appears that on CPSU hierarchy also, they are singing the tune of the management by showing different approach from that captured in KHAN COMMITTEE REPORT. However, their actual intent will be known only when the management finalizes the proposal. But that should not be a reason to worry, as we are maintaining a strict vigil and any detrimental activity which harms the interests of the executives shall be dealt with accordingly. 

Just Remember – Together We CanTogether We HaveTogether We Will.

Deferment of Organizational action Programme – call given by United Forum of AIBSNELA and AIGETOA

Congratulations to all the members and supporters of United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA !!!!!. We hereby congratulate all the rank and file of United Forum for their dedicated support and participation in the organizational action program. This is only the first step achieved and we have miles to go. We have been able to convince the management about the legitimacy of our demands and the firm timelines for resolutions have been committed. Despite the several negative forces running every nuke and corner to derail the resolution of issues and doing all sort of propaganda to just achieve their only one objective i.e. of membership verification. No doubt, Membership verification is the solution to this leg pulling approach by the overzealous corners but the same should not have been at the cost of derailing and sabotaging the issues by their unnecessary threats. We welcome them in Ballot Field also. Time will show them their real destiny. 

Now we request all the members to work sincerely and very hard to take BSNL to the new Heights. To our understanding, Management has already taken the first step towards fulfilling the commitment by approving the Management Committee proposal of replacing the scales from E2 to E7 and we sincerely hope and believe that management will honour all its commitments to keep the employee – employer relationship and industrial harmony at its best. We promise that we shall be keeping a strict vigilance over the issues to prevent any mischief from the overzealous corners.

Thanks and Gratitude once again to all the members for showing their exceptional support and hard-work to make this organizational action program successful…

In view of the positive approach of management and actual action taken on ground towards resolution of the issues… we hereby defer our organizational action program with a promise to return back if the things doesn’t go as committed.

On the first day of the HUNGER FAST programme more than 110 members of AIBSNLEA/AIGETOA CTD took part in the programme against the obstinate attitude of Management towards the legitimate demand of the Executives.At Lunch hour several other executives and leaders assembled to join the hunger fast participants.All leaders including CS and Presidents of both the organisations gave clarion call to make this programme successful.It was decided to ensure 100% participation on the 2nd day i.e,26-05-2016 so that BSNL Management can sense the intensity.

On behalf of Circle leadership to congratulate all comrades and organisers & hunger fast participants & request to make today's programme more intense by ensuring 100% attendance in Telephone Bhavan. 

                                         

                                         

25-05-2016

Talks with Director(HR) fails: Implement Organisational action programme with complete success i.e. 100% participation of the members. BSNL Management's indifferent & biased attitude has forced United Forum to continue agitation programme. This will be the decisive struggle.

All the Circle/Branch Secretaries are requested to ensure grand success of agitational programme.

Updates of Meeting with CMD and Director (HR) on 19.05.2016 and 23.05.2016: A meeting was held on 19th May 2016 with representatives of United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA with CMD BSNL in presence of Director (HR), GM (Establishment), Jt. GM (Pers), DGM (Estt).  The meeting lasted for more than two hours. The issues were discussed at length and concrete decisions has been taken. Thereafter, as per the instructions of CMD BSNL, a meeting of representatives of United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA was held with Director (HR) on 23.05.2016 in the presence of GM (Estt), GM (Rectt), Addl. GM (SR),    Jt. GM (Pers). The issues and their implementation was discussed in the meeting which lasted for around three hours and clear cut directions have been given to the concerned HR units to implement the same. Management side appealed for withdrawing the agitation program in view of the concrete decisions being conveyed. However, we are firm on our decision that any reconsideration of the agitation program can only be done if the management communicates the decisions in writing stating the implementation methodology along with time lines in clear cut terms. Director (HR) has guided SR cell to do the same. In case the decisions are communicated in true spirit, then only the review on the agitation program can be thought about.

All the Branch Secretaries are requested to ensure the success of implementation third phase of agitation program i.e. Day Long Hunger Fast for Three Days on 25th ,26th and 27th May 2016 along with "Work According to Rule" program w.e.f. 10:00 Hours on 25th May 2016 onwards.

CS,President,ACS,OSs alongwith CS & AGS/CHQ AIGETOA met GM(HR & Admn.) 0n 18-05-2016.We strongly protested & conveyed our resentment about a recent transfer order in DGM grade.We reacted against the way the transfer order was issued proactively in an unprecedented way while the same GM is turning deaf ear to several request transfer case pending for months together.

We also criticized the way to retain some SDEs relieved in ERP.Although it was known to the authority since November 2015 no fruitful action was made by the HR section in time.Now hastily some effort has been taken which is neither beneficial to the particular executives nor to CTD.This is the outcome of ineffective role of the HR section particularly of GM(HR).

Later we met GM(NWO/P CFA II) and protested abot the way department is trying to put all additional loads upon the shoulders of members of our Associations only.We requested him to rearrange executives in the Areas under his jurisdiction so that the shortage & workload may be equitably distributed to run the show.GM appreciated our view & informed us he has already taken the run down the executive strength in different sections for this purpose.We indicated our resentment about the way DGM Central had been transferred.

 Meeting with CMD BSNL

CMD BSNL Called President AIGETOA, GS AIBSNLEA and GS SNEA for a meeting. CMD Mentioned that in this financial year, BSNL has shown good performance vis-à-vis the last year and requested us to reconsider us that agitation program will adversely effect the  growth of BSNL. He shown us the messages from field units wherein it was mentioned that all executives are sitting outside and work is badly suffering and BSNL is not in position to afford it for even 10 minutes. Hence intervene and control the situation.

United forum explained that we have been demanding  implementation of Khan Committee report in its true spirit and as assured by Director (HR), the recommendations be implemented first and the anomalies can be examined later on. We also  requested that CPSU cadre hierarchy with scrapping of MT recruitment and DGM RRSs  with no lateral recruitment above JTO/JAO cadre, immediate holding of CPCs to fill up all group A and Group B vacant posts and settlement of other demands.

However, we have been taken aback with the one more U turn by GS SNEA as he said now anomalies be examined first ( Perhaps for the first time anomalies which will happen in future should be examined before implementation) and then scales be replaced perhaps sensing the mood of CMD BSNL inclination towards our view. He further demanded MT recruitment be held immediately with one more absurd logic that exams cannot be scrapped once notified..

We further informed CMD BSNL that his HR team is working overnight to derail all the issues and infact the decisions conveyed at the level of CMD/Director (HR) is also not being obeyed and HR team acts just opposite what is decided at that level. Perhaps they may not be as concerned as CMD and Director (HR) for the reasons know to all of us….

CMD decided to hold the meeting with United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA on Thursday, 19th May in presence of Director (HR).

We requested CMD to give final settlement and administrative orders on the issues after the meeting as already lot of discussions have taken place.

12-05-2016

CS,ACS,VP alongwith sectional representative met to welcome the newly posted Chief Engineer(Electrical) Sri Subir Kumar Biswas on 11-05-2016 at his chamber at 2/5A J C Road.We greeted him with a flower bouquet.Some discussion also taken place as follows:

                                                                          

1.Regular/EPP Promotion delay: We pointed out that different promotions of executives at electrical sections are being delayed due to vigilance clearance as it is routed via WB circle. 

CE intimated us as WB circle is declared as co-ordinating circle by BSNL CO,the VC are routed like this.However he will talk to both the DGM(Vig.) take proper steps so that it may be done from Vigilance section of CTD for CTD executives.

2.Delay in settling Medical Claims especially for retired executives:We intimated that due to non creation od R code of executives medical claims are kept aside after introduction of ERP.At least 14-15 retired executives are suffering.

CE took note and assured to take up the case with Accounts section & it will be settled soon.

3.Procurement of Computer & allied accessories:We pointed out that due to implementation of ERP at different offices Computrers are necessary.We wanted immediate procurement.

CE intimated that 38 new computers are being procured at DGS&D rate.Payment modalities are to be finalised.The a second lot may be procured.However the problem will be settled soon.

4.Life expired ACs replacement:We intimated him that due to non replacement of life expired ACs several BTS &  RLUs are not working properly.As a result of it service is being hampered.

CE informed us that 203 nos.of ACs hve been procured and being despatched to different sites for installation.Scrapping of old ones are also being processed.Second lot will be purchased after finalising the payment modality. He expected that this problem will be sorted out very early.

5.Unjustified transfer orders: We informed that an effort was made recently to destabilise our members by issuing unjustified transfer orders.However with our intervention the competent authority has stopped it.We wanted that in future orders may issued as per norms & guidelines of Dept.We are not opposing any justified transfer orders.The association may be consulted in this case.

CE took note of this and assured any such orders will be issued as per need & norms in this regard will be adhered to.Associations may be consulted if required.

6.Lift in Chittaranjan Building:We intimated that lift of Chittaranjan Exch.building is out of order since a couple of years.It is very troublesome for employees & customers also to climb stories through steps.We requested some immediate action.

CE was astonished to know this fact as last time when he was in CTD he was aware of this problem.However he assured to look into this matter for early solution.

Some local problems were discussed also.

The meeting ended in very encouraging atmosphere.We requested him for granting us a full agenda meeting in future & assured for warm co-operation for the betterment of BSNL & hoped that under his dynamic leadership we surely can progress towards betterment.

11-05-2016

BSNL Managements biased and indifferent attitude towards executives who turned around the company is reflected in the record of discussion published by SR Cell on 11.05.2016:

Record of discussion of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA meeting with Director (HR) has been released wherein the issues / demands raised by Association and the proposed disposal / settlement plan by BSNL Management is attached.  BSNL Corporate Office vide letter number BSNL/7-3/SR/2015 dated 11.05.2016 issues target dates on the agenda items / issues raised by Associations relating to Pers. / Estt Section<<<<Click here for the letter of SR Cell >>>Wherein, regarding conduction of various CPCs in Telecom Finance and Accounts, Telecom Factory Wings and CPC from JTO (C/E) to SDE (C/E) and EE(C/E) to SE (C/E) has not been mentioned. Our comments on various issues are as under:

1. Regarding AD (O/L) cadre restructuring proposal based of the committee report is being further delayed for next two months,

2. Pay anomaly cases with respect to juniors despite the Hon’ble Supreme Court judgement is being further delayed for the next four months.

3. Khan Committee recommendations on CPSU cadre hierarchy are totally ignored   and further modified structure will be planned in next two months and thereafter a joint committee will be formed to look into the implementations wherein the final proposal will be submitted after four months to the committee. In this manner the CPSU cadre hierarchy issue will be further dragged years together.

4. E2 and E3 scales for JTO and SDE equivalent executives: It is understood that BSNL Management will be submitting a memo to the MC of BSNL Board for grant of E2 and E3 scales for JTO and SDE equivalent cadres in replacement of E1A and E2A scales respectively with necessary changes as per recommendations of the Khan Committee wherein, it is being submitted that SDE and Sr. SDEs will remain in the E3 pay scales for ten years which is in violation of EPP and cannot be accepted.

5. Scrapping of the MTRR: Matter under review and proposal modified will be submitted to MC of BSNL Board wherein some modifications are suggested despite the assurances given in the meeting held with CMD BSNL on 14.12.2015 for scrapping the MTRR.

6. DGM RR: Despite the assurances given in the meeting held with CMD BSNL on 14.12.2015 for scrapping DGM RRs further a joint committee is proposed to be formed to complicate the issue.

7. Extending 30% superannuation benefits to BSNL recruited employees: A proposal approved by BSNL Board is being sent to DoT for approval by 15.06.2016 wherein 3% contribution from BSNL will be made as the superannuation benefits to the BSNL recruited employees whereas 6% contribution was assured earlier.

8. One time relaxation to steno grade III for their promotion to PA cadre: Ignoring the demand it is mentioned that Stenographer –III are covered under NEPP for promotions, in additions to the provisions available for the LICE for the post of PA. No further action is required on the subject is not acceptable.

9. Pay fixation in respect of Departmental outsider TTAs appointed as JTOs:  These Departmental TTA under direct recruitment quota after tendering technical resignation cannot be treated as promotions hence the options under Para 3.6 of the office order date 07.05.2010 is not admissible. The case is being killed by Estt. Cell ignoring the DoP&T pay fixation rules as well as other PSUs pay fixation orders.

10. E1+5 increments benefits to JTO (SRD), JAO 2013 Batch and PA cadre: The BSNL Board has given the approval on this issue for the executives’ recruited upto18.07.2014 only. The executives recruited in the year 2015 are not covered with this proposal.

11. Notional pay fixation of E1A and E2A for Civil/Electrical Wings w.e.f 01.10.2000: SEA branch has stated that the instruction issued in respect of JAO are in consonance with MoF order which was duly approved by DoT but the fact remains that the MoF order was related to AAO pay scales which was duly approved by DoT and not for JAOs. The Dr. Vinay Shahi, Ex. Jt. DDG (SEA) committee report was for the purpose of time bound IDA scale upgradation on actual basis but BSNL Management decided only the residency for the purpose of EPP. It is understood that further proposal is being submitted to the management to kill the case finally.

 

In view of the above, it seems that the management is adamant with an indifferent and biased attitude in not settling any of the genuine case hence there is no reason to re-think on our ongoing agitation program rather there is need to strengthen it to give a befitting reply to the anti-executives management.

 

One can understand the plan game of one sister Association which is playing in the hands of BSNL Management and helping in killing the issues for the reasons best known to them only.

A. Superannuation benefits to BSNL recruited employees: GM (Pers.) mentioned that BSNL Board in its meeting today has approved 3% contribution from BSNL as superannuation benefits to BSNL recruited employees. But AIBSNLEA will continue to struggle till it is not enhanced to 12%.

United Forum of BSNL Executives’ Associations comprising AIBSNLEA AND AIGETOA served agitation notice against breach of commitment and assurances given by Management

In spite of BSNL Management’s firm commitment and assurance given vide letter No. BSNL/7-3/SR/2015 dated 14.12.2015, BSNL Management has not taken any concrete action for settlement of the long pending genuine demands, United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA had several informal and formal meetings with the GM (Pers.), GM (Estt), Director (HR) and CMD BSNL but the issues could not be resolved due to the total negative attitude of the Establishment and Pers. Cell of BSNL CO.  In all the meetings CMD BSNL and Director (HR) have appreciated our concern and assured positive action but due to the negative approach of Estt and Pers. Cell, majority of the issues could not be resolved.  Recently on 26.4.2016 in the meeting held with Director (HR) it was pleaded by all the Executive Associations to implement Khan Committee report first by replacing E1 A by E2 and E2 A by E3 IDA Pay sales which was appreciated by Director (HR) but the GM (Estt) continued to plead that before implementation of Khan Committee report on E2 and E3 IDA Pay scales, it should be ensured that one SDE equivalent executive having E3 Pay scales will get his next financial upgradation as Sr. SDE in the same pay sale of E3 only. Which AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA strongly protested and categorically demanded the next subsequent time bound promotion in the higher grade E4 should be there only as per the provisions of EPP wherein it is  clearly envisaged that “first time bound financial upgradation during 4-6 years and subsequent time bound financial upgradations after every 5 years only”.  Hence, after E3 pay scale the next time bound upgradation after 5 years should be there in the higher pay scale of E4 only. We can’t accept E3 scale for 10 years for SDE and Sr. SDE without any pay fixation benefit.  Whereas, our sister Association told that they will be happy in case (SDE) E3 to (Sr. SDE) E4 upgradation is given after 5 years otherwise they will also be happy to have E3 IDA Pay scale for SDE and Sr. SDE.  This approach is strengthening the pleading of GM (Estt) which will finally put executives in loss.

 

Similarly, CPSU cadre hierarchy implementation is being dragged by Pers. Cell on the pretext of MT recruitment and on that basis they are framing a Promotion Policy which is against the recommendations of Khan Committee. The MT recruitment is being supported by our sister Association which is also strengthening the views of Pers. Cell and will finally block the carrier progression of BSNL’s young executives in the same manner which we seniors have suffered in DOT due to JTS recruitment rules wherein a JTO use to retire as Adhoc DE only.

 

Hence, accepting E3 scale for SDE and Sr. SDE will put one executive in one scale E3 for 10 years contrary to the provisions of EPP and it will effect 3rd PRC implementation also.  Our sister Association should understand that instead of strengthening the pleadings of Estt Cell and Pers. Cell, they should safeguard the interest of executives in true sense.  Their efforts in the past also were always to derail the process by giving agitation call on vital issues and withdrawing without any concrete results.  In real sense they are playing with the future of young JTOs/JAOs by putting them in E3 scale for 10 years and introducing MT in DE grade.  Majority of young executives of all disciplines belongs to AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA and they have full trust and confidence in these associations.  In true sense these Associations are only safeguarding the interest of all executives of BSNL.

 

United Forum has demanded each financial upgradation on completion of 5 years of service in each grade as recommended by Khan Committee i.e. E2->E3->E4->E5->E6->E7 etc.  The Sr. SDE grade is a non-functional grade which comes in between SDE and DE promotions.  In case the Sr. SDE non-functional grade is abolished it will give faster functional promotion to (JTO) E2 à (SDE) E3à (DE) E4 within 10 years of service which otherwise one executives is getting after 15 years. Earlier days at the time of formation of BSNL in DOT set up Sr. SDE/Sr. AO were the functional grades and in BSNL also before implementation of EPP the Sr. SDE designation was given but after the EPP implementation the Sr. SDE designation on time bound promotion in E3 grade is not given.  Hence, in case the non-functional grade of Sr. SDE is abolished it will pave the fast track promotion to young executives.  In case, if it continues to exist, in that situation all time bound promotions should be available after each 5 years in the scales E2 to E3, E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7.

 

If the Khan Committee recommendations are implemented in its true spirit, the pay protection has to be given to all the seniors who have already been given the time bound and post based promotion at the time of replacement of E1 A by E2, E2A by E3 IDA pay scales w.e.f. 1.1.2007. Some cascading effect will always be there but does not mean that executives should be deprived from their legitimate Pay scales. 

 

The 30% superannuation benefit has to be implemented with minimum contribution of 6% from employer instead of 3%   as assured by BSNL management on earlier meetings.   Resolution of the following other long pending HR issues needs urgent necessary action for:

 

A. Immediate conduction of various CPCs in all the disciplines to fill up the vacant group-A and Group B equivalent posts in a time bound manner, notional pay fixation of all upgraded pay-scales w.e.f. 01.10.2000, one time relaxation to Steno Grade-III for their promotion to PA cadre, settlement of Pay Anomaly cases where junior executives are drawing more pay than senior executives, special recruitment drive for hard tenure/shortfall circles, FR 22(I)a(i) pay fixation to officiating JTOs, restructuring of AD (OL) cadres, finalization of new SDE RR 2014 in line with association suggestions, Diversion of 50% MT quota CAO Posts to the Seniority Quota etc.

 

B. Declaration of LDCE results, Settlement of Rule-8 transfer cases, Pay loss to JTOs/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 and fixation of pay in respect of departmental outsider (TTA) appointed as JTOs, extension of E1+ 5 advance increment benefit to JTO (SRD)/JAO 2013 batch and PA Cadre and other long pending HR issues submitted earlier.

 

AIBSNLEA has been demanding immediate conduction of Membership verification but due to Hon’ble High Court Karnataka stay order it is delayed.  However, AIBSNLEA is ready to face referendum at any point of time.

 

All these issues needs immediate settlement as assured by BSNL management on the earlier occasions.

 

Let us, implement the agitation call with its full strength, defeat the ulterior motives of the vested interests and to get resolve the long pending issues for the betterment of BSNL executives.
