CS,President & OS attended the meeting of FORUM/CTD at BSNLEU Union room on 07-10-2015.Discussions were held about development of CTD.Our views were expressed by CS as follows:

1.Enforcement of Discipline & Punctuality:In CTD punctuality in attendance,discipline in discharging duty & execution of work in a time bound manner is to be enforced in every level starting from highest authority to the lowest worker in order to rescue CTD from distress.

2.FORUM's Role as  leader: It is evident that CTD management is failing consistently to uplift the position.In this juncture FORUM can & should play a vital role.We can share the experience of our fellow comrades of different association/union in other profit making circles like Kerala,Odisha,AP etc and try to implement here in CTD.

3.Quickness in fault clearance: It is often observed from the statistics shown that CTD is lagging in same day/24 hrs fault clearance very much.Within CTD some areas like Srirampur,Bidhannagar doing well but some areas like South ,Jadavpur,Central are backward.FORUM may organise knowledge sharing amongs the areas to improve the situation.More emphasis should be given on same day fault clearance.

4.Motivational Meeting:FORUM should organise gate meeting,group meeting,seminar etc to motivate executives & non executives in the mass level to come forward with initiative to save the CTD with enthusiasm.Let us take it as a challenge of our own.

5.Role of HR section in CTD:It is noticed in the recent past that the role of HR section of CTD is poor. Often it is seen that much time being lapsed for taking a simple decision.It is dampening our spirit.GM/HR in particular is not playing his role as a vertical head properly despite several proposal.He is avoiding to hear forom the leaders of FORUM.Regarding implementation of ERP no meeting organised,no training imparted,nothing has been discussed with FORUM.As s result of it workers are suffering & the field executives are getting accused without any fault of them.In our opinion it is a conspiracy to mislead the workers make a confrontation between executives & non executives.FORUM should take note of this & act accodingly.

6.NGN implementaion: Regarding implementation of NGN project again th e management is showing unplanned & whimsical attitude.Some places good exchanges are proposed to be replaced,some places after erection of switch again it was uprooted.Now it has been known that NGN cannot support ISDN PRI/BRI channel hence we have to maintain the old exch also until & unless there is a modification from the maker.It will increase the expenditure.FORUM is expected to look into this.

7.Condition of Cable: We all know that cable condition of CTD is not in a good shape.There are some paper core cable also.In this condition we cannot provide satisfactory service to the customers despite of modernisation of equipment indoor.KMC authority is objecting long cable laying without signing MOU.GM(Tx) is entrusted with the responsibility.But till now nothing has been done.Without replacing the old cable in a planned manner we cannot extend the facility to the customer and every modernisation will go in vain. FORUM should emphasize in this field.

8.Sales & Marketing: It is learnt from different circles which are making profit their maximum staff are deputed in the S & M field.On the contrary CTD has no strong S & M section.Previously there were three DGM posts in S & M which has bee reduced to one at present.In Area also Marketing section is printing posters only in actual.We should plan and demand preparation of strong S & M without which CTD will lose its visibility and as a result our customer base will be decaying.

9.Monthly Meeting of FORUM: FORUM should demand regular monthly meeting with the CTD management on the development issues only.Before that FORUM should sit together to review & finalise proposals.
