23.08.2017: Misleading reporting by SNEA on CPSU Cadre hierarchy:

SNEA on its CHQ website has put some misleading information regarding their negotiation with Management on CPSU Cadre hierarchy. The fact remains that in the earlier updates of SNEA in its CHQ Website it never mentioned about its stand on CPSU Cadre hierarchy and discussions held with PGM (Pers.). SNEA always mentioned that CPSU Cadre hierarchy is being implemented with the efforts of them. The fact remains that PGM (Pers.) had several rounds of meeting with SNEA before preparing the draft proposal of CPSU hierarchy which he presented to CMD BSNL in the presence of Director (HR) after the consent given by SNEA wherein PGM (Pers.) pleaded non-post based time bound promotions up to SDE/AO level only and post based promotions DE/CAO onwards. This was not agreed by CMD BSNL and Director (HR) and they directed PGM (Pers.) to modify the proposal to provide non-post based time bound promotions up to DE/CAO grade and post based promotions from DGM and onwards grade. This fact was confirmed by PGM (Pers.) and Director (HR) to AIBSNLEA in the recent informal meetings. AIBSNLEA stand was always to implement CPSU Cadre hierarchy as per the Khan Committee recommendation only. Now seeing the developments and the stand taken by CMD BSNL and Director (HR) on CPSU cadre hierarchy, SNEA is changing its stand. However, it is good that good sins has prevailed to them.  

22.08.2017: GS met with Jt. GM (Pres.), BSNL Corporate Office and discussed regrading:

A. CPC from JTO to SDE (T): We requested to file one MA in Hon.ble High Court of Kerala for early pronouncement of the judgment which is kept reserved since long. Jt. GM (Pers.) assured that shortly the MA will be filed in this regard. He further mentioned that the CPC work is in progress, the VCRs of the eligible JTOs are being collected from the Circles. He assured as soon the court stay order is vacated the CPC will be expedited. SLP in the Hon.ble Apex court against the judgment of Hon.ble High Court of Chandigarh has already been filed.

B. CPC from SDE to DE: We requested to expedite the CPC from SDE to DE. Jt. GM (Pers.) informed that the CPC work is in progress but recently Hon.ble Supreme Court two judges bench judgment on SDEs LDCE quota seniority has been pronounced in supersession to the earlier judgment of three judges bench of Hon.ble Supreme Court. Legal opinion in this regard has been sought whether the judgment can be implemented or an appeal is required to be filed in Hon.ble Supreme Court. SLP in the Hon.ble Apex court in against the judgment of Hon.ble High Court of Chandigarh has already been filed on the SC/ST roaster implementation.

 C. CPC from DE to DGM (E) left out cases: We requested to issue for 32 left out cases of DE to DGM promotions and to fill up all vacant posts arises consequent to declination of DGM promotions by some of the DEs.

18.08.2017: Need of united struggles for the settlement of wage revision:

GS replies Shri P. Abhimanyu, General Secretary, BSNL Employees Union, CHQ in reference to his letter number BSNLEU/103 (Forum) dated 10.08.2017 on the subject the need of united struggles for the settlement of wage revision. While appreciating his feelings that the wage revision of BSNL employees is must GS has categorically mentioned that DoT and Government should give a special consideration to dispense the affordability clause of 3rd PRC with reference to BSNL as it is discharging certain important responsibilities on behalf of the Govt. of India by implementing NOFN successfully, NFS and LWE projects assigned to BSNL. BSNL also provides reliable telecom services to customers during natural calamities in the country on priority without getting any extra financial support from the government. BSNL also governs the tariffs in telecom sector and ensure telecom services on affordable rates to the customers.

 At present CMD BSNL along with complete BSNL Board is making its sincere and honest efforts for the implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL. Hon.ble MoSC (I/C) is also of the same view and making efforts to get the Govt. approval for dispension of the said affordability clause of 3rd PRC report for BSNL. In this connection as per our discussions held with CMD BSNL on 09.08.2017, an internal committee of BSNL officers has been constituted to explore the modalities for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit. The committee meeting is over and the report is being submitted shortly which will be placed before the Management committee of BSNL and thereafter to the BSNL Board for approval. As assured by CMD BSNL after the approval of BSNL Board, he will take up the matter in DoT for its approval and issuance of Presidential Directives.

 In our opinion, we should closely monitor all these developments and in case we find any difficulty at any level in this regard then immediately we all BSNL Unions and Associations should discuss and decide the strategy to impress upon the DoT / Govt. for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL through our decisive struggle. We assure our fullest participation in the struggle, if need be.

18.08.2017: CPSU Cadre hierarchy implementation in BSNL

In the meeting held with PGM (Pers.) on 17.08.2017, it was informed that the draft proposal on CPSU cadre hierarchy was discussed with CMD BSNL in the presence of Director (HR) wherein CMD BSNL has advised to make the provisions of time bound promotions on functional basis up to DE level and post based promotions JAG onwards. Accordingly, the draft proposal will now be modified. As reported earlier by AIBSNLEA that PGM (Pers.) in consultation with the so called majority association diluted the CPSU cadre hierarchy proposal by limiting time bound promotions up to the level of SDE/AO on functional basis and DE/CAO onwards level, post based promotions only. AIBSNLEA opposed this proposal to PGM (Pers.), Director (HR) and CMD BSNL and demanded to implement Khan Committee report in True Spirit. CMD BSNL appreciated our concern and now after PGM (Pers.) s presentation, he directed PGM (Pers.) to modify the proposal up to STS level non-post based time bound promotions.

The so called majority association is now congratulating for a major breakthrough whereas they tried to sabotage the Khan Committee report by limiting non-post based promotions up to SDE level. AIBSNLEAs timely efforts only could stop the ulterior motive of the so called majority association sabotaging the Khan Committee report. AIBSNLEA will ensure true implementation of the Khan Committee report of CPSU cadre hierarchy.  PGM (Pers.) also mentioned that CMD BSNL has desired to fill-up all vacant posts of Gr. A and Gr. B before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. AIBSNLEA is also demanding this only.
