CS,President & ACS met GM(HR)  & DIR(Vig) on 03-03-2015.

We discussed with GM(HR) about PA-PS promotion both LDCE & Seniority quota.We expressed our anxiety about delay in the process.We expressed our dissatisfaction about the way of  EARS implementation.We said till date it has not been implemented for all & without any discussion dept.has published order to attach it with salary.We also pinted out that for a cancer patient HCU unjustifiedly disallowed certain medicines in outdoor bill also.We requested for some transfer & posting.

GM assured to look into the request & for HCU case he told to check the matter then proper action may be taken.For EARS he told that he was unaware of such order and he will inquire it.

Dir(Vig) assured us about Dipankar Saha case will be settled very shortly as answer to query of CVC sent from CTD.Other cases are also dealt with proper priority & promptness.

Request transfer cases of Accounts personnel has been forwarded to GM(Fin) who left office when we went to meetCS intimated over phone and may meet GM(Fin) today to express our anxiety regarding some matters.

CS,President,Adv(E),took part in CENTRAL OFFICE BEARERS AND CIRCLE SECRETARIES MEETING HELD ON 25th and 26th February 2015 AT ANDHRA ASSOCIATION BUILDING, LODHI ROAD, NEW DELHI. Com.Amit Gupta was also invited by GS.

The Views and suggestion placed by our Circle are as follows:

1.JTO-SDE(67%) posting:

 We demanded that as soon as the case is vacated the posting may be given at once without waiting for the vigilance clearance.Later the same may be done by the respective circles. It has been already done in JAO-AO order.This proposal was well accepted by the house & GS agreed to pursue in this line.

2.Look after arrangement in SDE & higher post:

  We strongly opposed about the present practice of giving LA instead of Officiating promotion.We demanded that Officiating promotion system should be restored.And in the meantime CTD is forcing to take LA as mandatory which is to be made optional.

GS told that the order quoted by CTD for mandatory LA is inappropriate,it is applicable for regular promotion,LA is always optional.He advised CS to take the case with CTD administration.He also agreed to pursue for Officiating.

3.Anomaly in JAO-AO Promotion:

   We pointed out that in the recent JAO-AO promotion there are gross anomalies.GS accepted the fact & told that we did not pressed so much against it in order to release the order early to avoid further delay.But as and when it was pointed out amendment are being issued by the active persuasion of CHQ.More re allotment/modification may be issued in future.

4.Long pending HR cases like AD(OL) upgradation,PPS post creation,JTO(RR), 5 increments for JAO 2013 Batch:

   We raise the points for immediate settlement.GS accepted that all the cases particularly AD(OL) case is very very long pending.He informed us that HR policy has been accepted in the last meeting of the BSNL Board. Till this time they were not discussing HR issues.Now it will be easy to pursue and hoped for early settlement.

5.FR 22(1)(a)(i) for Officiating JTOs:

   We thanked GS for implementation of Court award the the our officiating JTOs & requested to arrange for extending the facility to JTOs who officiated till 2004.

GS agreed and assured that CHQ is thinking about Court Case in this regard if required.At the same time GS informed that cases in Supreme Court are higlhy expensive,lawyer charges are Rs 3-3.5 lakhs per hearing. Already lot of expenditure has been made to fight the Offtg JTO case. He urged upon the CSs to collect fund for Offtg JTO case from members for extending financial aid to CHQ.

He also mentioned about the Parliament March and memorandum with 1 Crore Public Signature to the Hon'ble P.M. He also mentioned about the discussions taken place in the meetings important and burning issues of executives viz. CPSU cadre hierarchy, E2 – E3 pay scale to JTO and SDE equivalent executives.  It is mentioned that DoT has cheated all the BSNL absorbees by giving written assurance for Govt Pension under Rule 37A by subsequently mentioning the 60%-40% formula for contribution condition in the pay revision by the BSNL.  Though DoP&T has agreed to fix the pension the same has not been implemented and the pension liability of the BSNL is equal to the receipt side.


Making  such clause in the Pension revision will definitely burden the BSNL and BSNL is economy is badly affecting due the such financial burden.  The pension contribution of the retired employees of erstwhile DoT and MTNL is also being made on the BSNL and requested look into the matter for the better benefit of BSNL.  He also mentioned about the issue of AD(OL), PPS Posts creation and lack of concern in the HR team of BSNL CO who takes care of everybody.   He also mentioned about the limitation of CMD in many cases but requested to look into these aspects.

He wished great success and assured fullest support on behalf of the AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA.  He mentioned that under the leadership of Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL will definitely grow.


Com. Ravi Shil Verma in his speech on behalf of the gathering extended fullest support, presence, and are ready to work 24 x 7 Hrs for the revival of the BSNL and is waiting for your direction.  All the HR issues are leaving with him being the head of the organisation.


Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL thanked the gathering.  He mentioned that there is big BSNL Board meeting fixed for tomorrow morning and many works are to be completed.  He mentioned that there are many HR issues pending and lot of pressure.  He mentioned that the vehicle will move with two wheels only and the BSNL Management and Associations are the two wheels of the BSNL.  He assured that he is ready to sit with the Association to settle the HR related issues of executives.  He mentioned that BSNL fallen down to the lower level from the No.1 status to No. 10 in revenue generation and No. 5 in Market Share.  There is a life in the organization and are still able to manage operational expenses.  Once we make the BSNL profitable all the HR related issues will definitely restore and the aspiration of the members will be met by the BSNL management.
