Com. GS Summed up with the reply of the queries raised by all the Circle Secretaries.

On the issue of the DGM to Jt. GM promotion, Com. GS informed that we are perusing the case. Com. GS told that after the persuasions of AIBSNLEA only the promotions of JTO to SDE LDCE quota (about 2000) has issued. In SCF 3000 JTOs of 1999 batch have promoted. DRs were not been taken into consideration by the intervention of SCF by the SNEA.  We demanded to promote list No. 8 and 9 and Management agreed on list no. 8 but SNEA raised the issue to bring parity among the cadres in promotions, which has derailed the process. Earlier SNEA was impressing the management to implement the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy w.e.f. 31st July, 2018 but when they get failed in getting its implementation then to stop the promotions through CPCs they demanded parity. The fact remains that there was never parity among the various cadres in promotions due to various reasons even that prevailed in DoT. Management got disappointment due to such attitude of the Majority Association and stop the promotion through CPCs. AIBSNLEA continued to pursue  with CMD BSNL , Director(HR) , GM(Pers.) for issuing the promotions through CPCs in all disciplines and to maintain equalization in the cadres as far as possible. AIBSNLEA also extended its sincere gratitude and thanks to the managements for issuing 12,000 executives promotions within a month time, which has became a history.  AIBSNLEA is also demanded implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy but before its implementation all the existing eligible executives should be promoted to the next grade as per the existing RRs. We also briefed the management that in case CPSU CH  is implanted without conducting CPCs there will be court cases and in case the stay order is granted then BSNL Management will not be in a position to issue any promotion order through CPCs or CPSU CH. BSNL Management has appreciated our concern and assured to examine our apprehensions and for an early  action in this regard.

AIBSNLEA  efforts will continue to ensure holding of CPCs for the promotion for all the eligible executives before implementation of CPCU CH to provide  their service waitage  and financial benefits.

Com. GS told that AIBSNLEA played a big role in vacating the stay on JAO to AO promotion and 2300 promotions took place. In AO to CAO Court case BSNL Management filed the MA on our persuasion only. Stay order date on catch up Rule of DE to DGM hearing is 05.09.2018. DE to DGM contempt case date of hearing is 07.09.2018. AIBSNLEA impledment in AO to CAO case will derail the process.  GS informed that we will pursue the matter of GM (TR) in AP Circle. GS assured to take up the issue of posting new staff at BRBRAITT.

Regarding one day salary to Kerala calamity, Com. GS informed that we will support the donation of one day salary to Kerala Calamity. GS explained that the meeting at Jaipur was extremely necessary due to MV and was held by the approval of President and CHQ Office Bearers at ND. GS explained that the meeting at Delhi was also necessary for the issuance of the promotions before 30.06.2018. So it was not the wasteful expenditure at that time. To have second line leadership, Com. GS explained that AIBSNLEA have five Asstt. General Secretaries along with 15 CHQ Office Bearers who are leading the organization and they are available to serve the association as second line leadership if required.

Regarding the legal fund Com. GS told that now the subscription is directly coming to CHQ so that we have funds but there are so many legal cases AIBSNLEA is fighting. Now Rule 206 has been misinterpreted by the BSNL CO. Thus seprate legal fund is must.

GS assured to take up the matter of Hungama Service with Management. GS assured to takeup the matter of delayed GPF payment in HP Circle. GS informed that 28.08.2018 Board Meeting the AD (OL) case will be taken up.  Com.

08.08.2018: Meeting with Director (HR), BSNL Board, New Delhi

GS, President and AGS (HQ) met Director (HR), BSNL Board. GM (SR), GM (Pers) and OSD to Director (HR) were also present in the meeting. We expressed our serious concern over the issuance of letter dated 07.08.2018 by the Pers Cell on revision of seniority list of TES Gr -B in compliance of Hon.ble  Supreme Court judgment dated 21.01.2015 and 14.12.2017 in Civil Appeal No(s). 4389 of 2010 wherein demotion of thousands of the executives is contemplated by the version of Pers. Cell which is of the opinion that on the recommendations made by the Expert Committee, the Hon.ble  Supreme Court has refrained from passing any order thereon, except that 14 persons who were said to have been given promotions – 3 persons in BSNL and 11 persons in MTNL may not be now disturbed. This is misinterpretation by the Pers. Cell. We requested Director (HR) to have an independent advice from the ASG of India on the plan of the Pers. Cell for the implementation of the Hon.ble  Supreme Court judgments dated 21.01.2015 and 14.12.2017.

After detailed discussion on our pleading, Director (HR) directed GM (Pers) to take the advice from the ASG of Govt. of India. She also directed GM (Pers) to issue a clarification immediately that consequent to revised seniority, the pension of the retired executives will not be reduced. She also assured us that on receipt of the advice from the ASG the implementation plan will be reviewed and modified accordingly.

AIBSNLEA is consulting and taking legal advice from its Advocate who have pleaded the case in the Hon.ble  Supreme Court as well as in the Expert Committee and accordingly on the that basis further action will be taken immediately.

Conduction of CPCs in all the disciplines:

We further requested Director (HR) to conduct CPCs of all the eligible executives in all the disciplines to be promoted to the next grade before implementation of the CPSU CH. Director (HR) directed GM (Pers) to put up the proposal for conducting the CPCs immediately to CMD BSNL for approval. GM (Pers) assured an early action in this regard.


08.08.2018:  Look after Arrangement in the higher grade/s by Executives of Finance Stream in Maharashtra Circle - Clarification issued by BSNL Corporate Office:

BSNL Corporate Office issued a clarification that the executives who are reluctant to hold the responsibility of higher grade being assigned to them under look after arrangement due to any reason may be allowed to submit their refusal requests and the competent authority may accept their refusal requests with the understanding that they are refusing to shoulder the higher responsibility . In that scenario, such executives need not be enforced to join the higher post ordered under the look after scheme and some alternative arrangement be made.

The meeting decided to write to the Secretary DOT, expressing dissatisfaction that, despite efforts were taken by the AUAB, to hold a meeting with her, the Secretary DoT, has not met the AUAB, not even once in the past 5 months. The meeting also decided to seek a meeting with the Secretary DoT immediately, and decided to give call for the next phase of agitation, in case the meeting does not materialise.

Next meeting of AUAB will be held at 15:00 hrs. on 23-08-2018 at BSNL MS Office


02.08.2018:Meeting with CMD, BSNL: GS, President, met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding

A) Implementation of 3rd PRC  with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL: On the query of CMD BSNL regarding AUAB meeting with Hon.ble MOSC(I/C) held yesterday, we appraised him that the Hon.ble MOSC(I/C) has assured to discuss our demands with Secretary Telecom on 03.08.2018. CMD BSNL mentioned that the matter was discussed by him also with the Hon.ble MOSC(I/C) wherein he has requested that DOT should decide payment of Pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the Pay scale and there after the implementation of 3rd PRC recommendation in BSNL should be left to the BSNL Management. However he assured that in case he is invited by the Hon.ble MOSC(I/C)  during the discussion with Secretary Telecom on this issue he will further suggest the same.

B) CPCs to be conducted in all disciplines for the eligible Executives before the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy:  We  further extended our sincere  gratitude and thanks to CMD BSNL for issuing promotion orders for 12000 Executives within a period of one month. But we expressed our serious concern against the statement of GM(Pers) to limit the CPCs up to the year 2005 only and not for upgrading the posts to promote the eligible executives of all disciplines before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. CMD BSNL advised that the matter should be discussed with the DIR(HR) who has clarity in this regard. He further mentioned that no such decision is taken at his level to limit the promotions up to the year 2005 only.  However  AIBSNLEA will discuss the matter with DIR(HR) shortly.

C) Implementation of Rule-206 of SDE Seniority: We expressed our serious concern against the mis-interpretation of  Hon.ble Supreme Court Judgement on Rule-206 of SDEs Seniority case by  Pers Cell of BSNL Corporate Office. We requested the DIR(HR) to seek the legal opinion from a Senior Advocate accordingly Dir(HR) directed the Pers Cell of the BSNL Corporate Office to seek the legal opinion from  an  Advocate  but the Pers Cell BSNL  Corporate Office never took the legal opinion from an Advocate but as per the legal advice of legal cell of BSNL Corporate Office has taken the approval from the Competent authority. Thus the Hon.ble Supreme Court judgement has been made in fictitious which will cause further litigation.   Also will invite vigilance complaint against the mishandling of the Hon.ble Supreme Court judgement for which the reasons are best known to Pers Cell. We further requested CMD BSNL for his kind intervention and giving a direction to the Pers Cell to seek the Legal opinion from an Advocate instead of depending on the Legal Advice given by the Legal Cell of BSNL Corporate Office, CMD BSNL assured to look in to the matter.

D)  Grant of Pay  Rs.22820/- to the JTOs/JAOs post recruited 2007 : We requested the CMD BSNL to consider for granting of Pay Scale of Rs.22820/- to the JTOs/JAOs post recruited 2007 to remove the pay anomaly after implementation of the 2nd PRC report and to avoid their huge Pay loss. CMD BSNL assured to look in the matter.


01.08.2018: Meeting with GM(Pers) : GS, President, met  GM(Pers) and discussed regarding

A) Regarding JTO to SDE Promotion:   We demanded that all the eligible JTOs should be promoted to SDE (T) by filling-up of   7500 vacant SDEs posts. GM(Pers) informed that the process has already been started to fill up all the vacant SDEs Posts. The necessary data from most of the Circles have been received.

He further mentioned that the Competent Authority  has advised to expedite CPCs in those cadres where the vacancies are available. The earlier upgradation in some cadres was done to overcome with the pending court cases. We further pleaded that to bring equilibrium among the cadres the upgradation/restructuring in the cadres is needed. GM(Pers) mentioned that now the Competent Authority has desired to bring equalization among the cadres,  only  up to the year 2005 as a reference point of Last CPC conducted or the Year of Recruitment so that upgradation in the cadres can be avoided.

It seems that the Competent Authority has taken such decision under the pressure mounted by some Association to bring parity among the cadres up to the year 2013 of JAO to AO Promotion which is not practically possible in all the cadres without upgradations. Perhaps the Management has taken such decision to limit promotions up to the year 2005 instead of year 2010 and thereafter. We strongly opposed such decision and mentioned that such decision will  disappoint and demotivate thousands of Executives at this stage those who are eagerly waiting for their promotion through CPCs. GM (Pers) further mentioned that the matter may be discussed with the Competent Authority only to revise the decision.

B) SDE to DE promotions  :  We requested  that the Promotion orders should be issued to reduce stagnation in the cadre of SDE (T) by promoting all the eligible SDEs promoted up to the year 2010. GM(Pers) mentioned that at  present no exercise is being made for the promotion from SDE to DE wherein upgradation is needed and the same is not agreed by the Competent Authority now.

C) Regarding AO to CAO promotion : GM(Pers) mentioned that  promotions from AO to CAO can be issued against the vacant CAO posts only after the vacation of the stay order on promotion from Hon.ble Chandigarh CAT. Now upgradation is not accepted by the Competent Authority.

D) DE to DGM Promotion: We requested for issuing DE to DGM promotion. GM(Pers) mentioned that the promotion orders from DE to DGM can be issued after the vacation of the stay order on promotion from Hon.ble Chandigarh CAT on catch up Rule. The case is listed for hearing in the Hon.ble CAT Chandigarh on 7.9.2018 along with AO to CAO case.

E) Restructuring of AD(O/L) cadre:  We requested GM(Pers) for issuing the restructuring order of AD(O/L) cadre as the clearance has been received from DoT. GM(Pers) mentioned  that it will be put up to the BSNL Board for approval and thereafter order will be issued. We informed that all the earlier Restructuring proposals were only approved by the Management Committee of the BSNL Board. GM(Pers) assured to look in to the matter.

Some Association in the name of parity in the promotions among all the cadres has tried to derail the  process of CPCs  and always mounting pressure on Management for the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and also opposing  promotion of Executives through CPCs pleading that BSNL is loosing money  due to one additional increment benefit in the promotions through CPCs, And  threatening the BSNL Management to stop CPCs otherwise they will go on Agitation, which has become a routine threat from them. Some Officers having over jealousy attitude and sitting in the BSNL Management are also happy with this kind of situation where the Group  B  level Executives continue to stagnate in one cadre for more than 15 years.

AIBSNLEA efforts will continue to get promoted all the eligible executives to the next higher post before implementation of CPSU CH. AIBSNLEA efforts have already yielded results in getting released 12,000 executives promotions despite of many hurdles. Let us, come together to defeat  such negative forces in BSNL.


01.08.2018:   AUAB meets Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon.ble MoSC(I/C) in the Parliament House: The representatives of the All Unions and Associations of BSNL met Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon.ble MoSC(I/C) in the Parliament House today.

S.D. Sharma, GS, ATM BSNL and Com.J. Vijaya Kumar, Dy.GS, TEPU.

The AUAB leaders expressed their serious concern against the non-implementation of the assurances given by Hon.ble MoSC(I/C), in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, with the representatives of AUAB. They further pointed out that, during the last five months, not even a single meeting has been granted by the Hon.ble MoSC(I/C) and the Secretary (T), to discuss about the implementation of the assurances.

1)  Assurance was given by Hon.ble MoSC(I/C), to get the affordability clause of 3rd PRC relaxed, w.r.t. BSNL. However, the DoT has not started the preparation of the Cabinet Note for getting the affordability clause of the 3rd PRC relaxed for BSNL.

2)  Direction was given by Hon.ble MoSC(IC) to the Secretary(T), to take action for collecting pension contribution from BSNL on actual basic pay, as per the government order, instead of the maximum of the pay scale. DoT has not taken any action in this regard till date.

3)  Hon.ble MoSC(I/C) directed the Secretary, Telecom, in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, to take necessary action for revision of pension of BSNL Pensioners. No action has been taken so far.

4)  Hon.ble MoSC(I/C) gave assurance in the meeting held on 24.02.2018, for allocation of 4G Spectrum to BSNL, but so far same is not allotted to BSNL.

After discussion on the above issues, the Hon.ble MoSC(I/C) stated that the issue of 4G Spectrum allocation is in the hands of the government, and that it would be done shortly. Regarding pay revision, pension contribution on actual basic pay and revision of pension of BSNL Pensioners, the Hon.ble MoSC(I/C) assured that he would discuss all these issues with the Secretary, Telecom, on 3rd August, 2018.

Hon.ble MoSC(I/C) further stated that the employees should earn revenue for BSNL, in addition to raising the demands. The AUAB leaders replied that they are giving tough competition to Reliance JIO, who is providing services based on predatory pricing. Shri M.B. Rajesh, MP, extended his thanks to the Hon.ble MoSC(I/C) for granting the meeting and discussing the issues.

We extended our sincere gratitude and thanks to Hon.ble MoSC (I/C) for granting the meeting and also extended thanks to Shri M.B. Rajesh, MP, for arranging the meeting.  <<<<Click here for glimpses>>>
