All the gatherings given tribute to Com.VKP photo placed in the conference hall.

 Com.S.Kamaraj, ACS, in his inaugural  address mentioned that BSNL is increasing revenue year by year and  15% fitment benefit should be extended to BSNL Employees.  GPF payment to employees is badly delayed and need to be settled. Central Government is insisting BSNL to conduct meetings to propaganda their achievements and expenditure in this regard is to be incurred by BSNL, whereas no funds are provided to BSNL for its growth.  But the Government is fully supported and encouraged the private operators.

 Com.L.Subbaryan, DS NFTE,  in his speech stated that the affordability clause in the 3rd PRC report will not applicable to BSNL and  15% fitment benefit should be extended to BSNL Employees.  There is no additional burden on BSNL to extend the 15% fitment benefit in 3rd PRC since 90% employees are retiring within five years.   Further he pointed out that we have to maintain our unity to achieve our demands.

 Com Usmanali, Ex DS, in his speech appreciated the AIBSNLEA CBE Branch for increase its membership from 50 to 130 and stated that there is no debate in first or second position during the MVP but AIBSNLEA should be “always ahead “  in struggle and solving the issues.

 Our Chief Guest Shri.V.Sundar,PGM CBT,  in his Special address mentioned that the growth in GSM segment is positive whereas in the Landline segment it is negative. We have to concentrate on FTTH segment for the better growth of BSNL.  We have to concentrate on the re connection of the disconnected landlines and ensure to retain the existing customers by providing good service.

 Com N.Velusamy  DS in his address stated  that we have conducted “NALANDANA” and SWAS programmes.  But there is no expected result.  Man power assistance is to be extended to all Sub divisions on need basis to restore the faults immediately in order to retain the existing customers. Customers are in need of uninterrupted BB service and higher speed.  We have to concentrate on these aspects. He has requested the PGM to settle the local HR issues and given some useful inputs for Landline revenue growth and minimizing the expenditure.

 Our Guest of Honour Shri K. Panneerselvam, DGM (F)  in his speech appreciated the involvement of the staff in increasing the revenue of BSNL. The staff must work for BSNL with prioritising the work to get good output. We have to give good service to the customers for development of  the BSNL.  There should not be any slackness in the service.

 Com N.P.Rajedran, ADS, BSNLEU in his special address mentioned the all Unions and Associations have initiated more ideas and programmes like Swas, Melas and 1 hour extra work  etc. This shows our unity for growth of BSNL.  But the Govt is diverting our issues with irrelevant issues. The fitment is to be given 25% in III PRC, ie. We are eligible to get 10% for 1st 5 years in 2012 and 15% for  2nd 5 years in 2017.  He insisted for unity among trade unions at this crucial stage.

 Com M.Danushkodi, Area Secretary, Erode, in his special address requested the CHQ for the speedy settlement of HR issues such as CPCs, III PRC etc. We have to find out ways and means to improve Financial position of BSNL.

 Com A.Sivaraj, Ex-COS in his address pointed out for membership increase, conducting of meetings etc. He appreciated the Circle association for better functioning. The CHQ must give strike calls with confidence to achieve our demands. CHQ must make efforts to unite all and fight for III PRC fitment benefits and other long pending HR issues. The CHQ should take all out efforts with administration for all payments to staff, to suppliers and to contractors in time.

 Com Murthy ACS, AIGETOA in his speech, wishes for the III PRC fitment benefit and insisted for the unity in all levels to achieve our demands.

 Guest of Honour, Com  C.Duraiarasan, CS in his address narrated the III PRC report and present status.  We are incurring expenditure about 1 lakh for one exchange which gives only meagre revenue about Rs.6,000/-.  There are about 8500 such exchanges all over India. We can calculate the total expenditure incurring on these aspects.  This expenditure should be compensated with USO subsidy.  The Govt has to support BSNL for this expenditure by providing funds.  III PRC is last PRC for majority of the employees.  So we have to concentrate and get the benefits. He narrated the court case and delay in CPCs and expecting early decision of the management. The majority association has allowed the MTRR. He insisted for simplified and modified VC report for Look on and regular promotion etc.

 Guest of Honour, Com S.Sivakumar, CHQ president, in his address narrated the functioning of the Coimbatore branch during election campaign and due to  in depth campaign in Coimbatore, AIBSNLEA got 155 votes and congratulated the Office bearers. He insisted  the newly elected body to meet all executives and explain the stand of AIBSNLEA in up gradation of Pay scale to all  executives starting from JTO/JAO cadre to DGM (i.e from E2 to E7). There are only 120  CAOs (regular) against 1335 CAO sanctioned posts and informed the house that AO to CAO CPC has already been iniitated  for 882 eligible Officers. . He mentioned that AO to CAO , JTO to SDE, SDE to DE  and JAO to AO CPC are delayed due to various court cases. However CHQ is pursuing with Management for the conduction of all CPS and assured that Promotion orders will be issued for the above said cadres very shortly. He also stated that  AIBSNLEA is ready for united struggle but SNEA and AIGETOA  announced the struggle without consulting AIBSNLEA. He explained about the steps taken by AIBSNLEA for achieving 15% fitment benefit in the III PRC and justification put forth by AIBSNLEA for the relaxation of affordability clause and as Priority Sector . He also mentioned that GS AIBSNLEA is writing so many letters in this regard to the Honourable Minister for Communictions &IT, SEcretary(T), Secretary(DPE) and CMD.

The session resumed  again by 2.20 P.M after the lunch break 

 Com B.Manikandan, Circle OS in his special address narrated how AIBSNLEA is taken up the issues of the Officiating JTOs  and the Officiating JTOs now become Regular JTOs joined in AIBSNLEA with a fond hope and in good faith that AIBSNLEA is the only association to safeguard  the interest of allexecutives .  

Guest of Honour, Com P.Tamilselvan, Circle President in his address explained the need of the hour is to get III PRC fitment benefits and settlement other pending HR issues. BSNL management has to concentrate on landline connections also for revenue growth.

 Com S.Rajamanickam, DGM (F) Erode in his address narrated the pay in 1979  and pay in 2016. We got the pay, because of strong trade unions only.  With unity of all, we have to get the III PRC benefits.  BSNL revenue growth has been affected due to entry of Reliance JIO in the Telecom Field..

 Com  Kesavan, raised the issues such as delay in payment of Tower rent. The suppliers are in very anger and scolding in un parliamentarly words for delay in payment of rent to them in time.  He requested the CHQ to take up the issue with  Corporate Management for releasing of funds in time.

Our beloved Comrade and Circle President Tamilselvam father expired at 4.30 AM today. AIBSNLEA TN CIRCLE  expresses heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.


Dear comrades!
Coimbatore District Conference will be held on 18.06.2017 at Thomas Club , Coimbatore 


It is time for introspection to Majority Association

Dear Comrades! AIBSNLEA have been fighting for the settlement of all the legitimate HR issues and viability of BSNL since its inception and achieved many mile stones during the period by getting implemented grant of perks  to executives w.e.f. 01.01.2005, implementation of EPP w.e.f 18.01.2007, filling of all vacant STS Group- A level posts in all discipline by getting clearance from DoT in Sept.-2006, Transparent Transfer Policy-2008, BSNL MSRR-2009, Withdrawal of MT RR-2008 and 2011, Regularization of all adhoc level executives in all disciplines, filling up of the vacant DGM/SE posts in all disciplines, 3% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees, framing of JTO RR-2014 and conduction of JTO LICE, Creation of  PPS and Sr. PPS posts, regularization of offg. JTOs Rs. 22820/- Pay anomaly resolution by formation of Committee and active participation in all the struggles of BSNL Unions and Associations to protect the interest of BSNL etc.

Recently in Dec.-2016 BSNL Management conducted referendum for majority executive Association wherein AIBSNLEA by getting 18,400 votes got Support Association status and thereafter continuously trying to protect  the interest of all the BSNL executives i.e. BSNL recruited or absorbed. After referendum under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations on agitation was launched for the settlement of the burning demands i.e. pay loss of post 2007 recruited executives, standard pay scales by replacing E1A by E2, E2A by E3 and subsequent pay scales E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7, 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees, CPSU Cadre hierarchy as per the Khan Committee report, 3rd PRC implementation with 15% fitment benefit and pension revision of BSNL pensioners etc on the positive assurance given by the CMD BSNL, Director(HR); the agitation programme was deferred. But immediately just after the agitation deferment, BSNL management took vindictive actions again the three General Secretaries of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA by issuing “Show Cause” notice, deduction of salary of two days DHARNA organized on 27thand 28th Dec-2016 by cancelling the sanctioned E/L and C/L etc.

Thereafter, on 28th March-2017, DoT administration issued Presidential Directives for E1A and E2A intermediary pay scales which created unrest and accordingly AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA organized protest demonstration on 06.04.2017 wherein Com. GS, AIGETOA was also requested to sign the notice but he expressed his inability in signing the agitation notice of United Forum and mentioned  that he is in favour of Joint struggle of all the Associations wherein he along with his members already actively participated in Majority Association demonstrations held on 30/03/2017.

Com. GS, AIGETOA was requested by GS AIBSNLEA and GS, AITEEA for serving a agitation notice under the banner of United Forum for protest actions, but GS AIGETOA was perhaps committed to Majority Association to go on agitation on United Forum platform and insisted us also to come and join with them rather than starting agitation. And finally they formed Joint Forum and served a notice of agitation on 10.04.2017 when the GS AIBSNLEA was on LTC at Port Blair w.e.f. 09.04.2017 to 16.04.2017. I explained to GS AIGETOA and GS SNEA that at present I am away from CHQ and after having the talk with our  CHQ Office bearers and Circle Secretaries, I shall be able to take the decision because just three months before referendum has taken place wherein lot of hot exchanges have taken place, so that immediately joint struggle is not possible. We have to convince and mentally prepare our members at base level for joint struggle then only it is possible for us to come together but it was ignored for which the reasons are best know to them and they served the notice under the banner of Joint Forum denouncing United Forum. Now  Majority Associations is alleging support Association to derail all the HR issues which JF and BSNL Management jointly trying to resolve. The fact remains that Jt. Forum in collision with the BSNL Management is trying to sabotage the important HR issues which the support Association could bring on track i.e. E1-A by E2, E2-A by E3 and subsequent up gradation of pay scales E3 by E4, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7 which was approved by Management Committee of BSNL Board and was sent to DOT on 06.08.2016 during the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA. The majority Association since beginning tried to sabotage it and after referendum pressurized the BSNL Management to trunked the proposal making it half i.e. upto E1-A by E2 and E2-A by E3 only wherein double fixation is E3 grade, means one executive will remain in E3 scale for 10 years in violation of EPP which will invite litigations. Knowing well this fact they are befooling the executives and trying to harm the interest of all the executives of BSNL. They pressurized BSNL Management to withdrawal the earlier 06.06.2016 proposal and hafted it upto  E1-A by E2 and E2-A by E3 only. But with the vigorous efforts of AIBSNLEA, they could not succeed in it and now BSNL has replied the queries of DoT pleading that BSNL’s earlier proposal of 06.06.2016 may be considered in two parts. AIBSNLEA will continue to make its efforts for upgradation of all thepay  scales E1-A to E2, E2-A to E3, E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7 in the larger interest of all the executives.

Majority Association is sabotaging the CPSU Cadre Hirarchy, Khan Committee report by allowing  MT recruitment and allowing post based promotions in STS level. We will strongly oppose such acts of Majority Association.

30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees came with the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA only. Majority Association never contributed in this regard.

PGM(PF) Ms. A. Panda, Committee of pay anomaly of Rs. 22820/- of JTOs/JAOs post recruited 1.1.2007 was constituted on the demand of AIBSNKLEA and AITEEA by CMD BSNL. But the Majority Association trying to sabotage committee report raising huge financial implication to benefit thousands of executives in the report in line of Estt. Cell  pleadings.

Notional pay fixation of JTOs/SDEs(C/E/Arch/TF) Engineering wings and PA cadre.  This issue was initiated and taken  by AIBSNLEA and with its sincere efforts only the management committee of BSNL Board has cleared it and now BSNL board approval is awaited. This issue was hijacked by majority association.

E1+5 advance increment benefit to JTOs/JAOs could be settled by AIBSNLEA through KCGK Pillai Committee report. Now JTO(SRD), JAO 2013 batch and PAs case has been cleared by BSNL Management committee and awaited for BSNL board approval.

MT diversion in Telecom Engg. Could take place first and then MT diversion of CAOs posts got cleared from Management committee of BSNL board and now awaited for BSNL board approval.

E5 to E6 time bound promotion and EPP to DGM adhoc by modification in BSNL MS RR got approved from Management committee of BSNL and now awaited for BSNL board approval.

AD(O/L) cadre restructuring  got approved from Management committee of BSNL and now DOT approval is awaited.

About 1200 DGM(Engg.) and about 250 DGM(Fin)/ DGM(TF), about 100 SE(Elect./Civil) promotion could become possible with the untiring  efforts of AIBSNLEA

Sincere efforts are being made to get expedite CPCs from JTO to SDE, SDE to DE, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, CAO to DGM(Finance), JTO(C/E) to SDE(C/E), SDE(c) to EE(C), etc by taking some solution in view of the legal opinion on Hon’ble High Court Chandigarh judgment and DP&T guidelines on SC/ST roster implementation.

In this manner AIBSNLEA will continue to work to safeguard the interest of all the executives of BSNL.

Majority association now after referendum should honestly concentrate for the settlement of pending HR issues in the interest of all the executives instead of doing vote bank politics. Majority association should not worry on support association affairs. Support association knows it’s responsibility well.

It’s a fact that AIBSNLEA got about 18400 plus votes during referendum and got support association status with the help of AIGETOA and AITEEA. AIBSNLEA is committed to protect the interest of its members and supporters. Now AIGETOA leadership preferred to align with Majority Association under the banner of Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations under the assurance that they will achieve their demands and no vindictive actions will be there against them which the GS AIGETOA faced  Show Cause notice during the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA. Now BSNL Management leaving Majority Association leaders aside has victimized GS AIGETOA by serving majority penalty charge sheet. It has caused panic and now majority Association is desperate to mount pressure on BSNL Management to withdraw the vindictive Actions through the agitation of BSNL Unions and Associations on the pretext of 3rd PRC implementation, whereas, CMD BSNL with all the Board of Directors met Honourable MOS(C) (I/C) on 16.06.2017 and pleaded for implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit, then where is the need of going on strike at this juncture. However, we are against any victimization of Association/Union leaders/members for organizing legitimate Trade Union activities but they should be fair in their approach.

AIBSNLEA never harmed the interest of anyone and never deviated from its policies under the pressure like Majority association. AIBSNLEA is using all the channels to get implemented 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit and pension revision. In case any difficulty is faced in this regard will not hesitate to take harder Trade Union action programmes in term of even indefinite strike.

AIBSNLEA was never interested to mention above facts but the majority Association write up on their website 15.06.2017 has forced to explain.

Why AIBSNLEA is not participating in the agitation call given by the Unions and Associations of BSNL?

15.6.2017: Dear Comrades! A meeting of BSNL Unions / Associations was held at New Delhi on 02.06.2017 to discuss the implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL. The meeting was convened by Com. P Abhimanyu GS, BSNLEU and was presided over by GS, AIBSNLEA.

During discussions, as GS, AIBSNLEA while expressing our concern on 3rd PRC implementation we demanded that the particular Clause of the Rule 14 (1) of the BSNL (REA) Rules, 2013 which prevents executive Associations participation along with the non-executives unions agitation programs i.e.Further, the Association will not join hands with the non-executives unions for furtherance of their issues and / or participate in any kind of joint trade union action. should be deleted / withdrawn.

We further explained that during the agitation program of United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations comprising of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA, for organizing DHARNA on 27th and 28th December 2016, all the three General Secretaries were issued Show Cause notice to initiate the disciplinary action under BSNL CDA conduct rules, wherein violation of Executives Associations recognition rules was also the charge against us. The sanctioned E/L and C/L for two days on 27th & 28thDecember 2016 of GS, AIBSNLEA and GS AITEEA were cancelled and a dies-non was made with two days salary cut. This issue was immediately brought to the notice of all the Unions/ Associations and accordingly GS BSNLEU and GS NFTE met CMD BSNL and Director (HR) BSNL and protested against this and gave a letter of protest but BSNL management did not withdrawn the Show Cause notices and salary cut even after a lapse of five months. We explained that under these circumstances, where we represent the executives of DGM/DE/CAO/EE/SDE/AO/JTO/JAO ranks, it is difficult to participate in the strike call because these executives are the soft target of the management and AIBSNLEA do not have any recognized channel to protect these executives. Hence, BSNL Unions/ Associations first take up the issue with BSNL Management for withdrawal of all the vindictive actions and to stop such actions against the legitimate Trade Union activities of the BSNL Unions/ Associations. But unfortunately it was not given due consideration.

The Demand of unconditionally withdrawing the BSNL C.O. letter dated 08.05.2017 banning all trade union activities in BSNL was related to the ongoing agitation of Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations. In compliance to the Honourable Patiala Court,New Delhi orders it was banned. It cannot be imposed on all the unions/ associations. Presently the matter is being defended by the Joint Forum in the Honourable Patiala House Court. This issue should be discussed with BSNL management

 both the majority Unions/Associations. We impressed upon that making it a demand of strike along with the demand of 3rd PRC implementation is not correct as it dilutes the main demand.

Moreover, the Joint Forum of Executive Associations agitation was mainly to get replacement of E-1A by E2 and E-2A by E3 only wherein they are demanding withdrawal of BSNLs earlier proposal which was send to DOT on 06.06.2016 during the agitation and the demand of United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations comprising of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA as

1. Replacement of E-1A by E-2 and E-2A by E-2 and E-2 by E-3 pay scales w.e.f. 1.1.2007 and

2 Upgradation of subsequent pay scales E-2 by E-4, E-4 by E-5, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 w.e.f. 1.1.2007.

This demand of Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations has trunked the BSNLs complete proposal and has halved the demand. Hence, AIBSNLEA cannot associate with such associations agitation call.

In view of the above, AIBSNLEA will extend its solidarity support to the agitation call of BSNL Unions/ Associations on common demand of 3rd PRC related issues implementation.

We appreciate the efforts taken by BSNL  Management in DOT for the implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefits for BSNL employees. Now, CMD BSNL along with all the BSNL Board members are meeting with Honourable MOS (C) )(I/C) on 16.06.2017 at 2:30 PM demanding 3rd PRC implementation with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL.

In the meeting conducted by CMD BSNL with the representatives of BSNL Unions/ Associations on 03.06.2017, CMD BSNL categorically told that he will make his best efforts for the implementations of 3rd PRC in BSNL and in case he fails in getting implemented 3rd PRC in BSNL he will resign from the post of CMD BSNL owning the responsibility. It is really appreciable stand of CMD BSNL. We should trust his efforts and extend our fullest support to him in his endeavor.

AIBSNLEA is continuously making its sincere efforts in convincing the officers in DOT/DPE in person in support of 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit. We have also requested Honourable MOS (C) (I/C) and Secretary (T) to grant us a meeting to represent our views in this regard. Let us, continue our efforts to ensure implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL.
