CMD BSNL called AUAB leaders in his Chamber where on behalf of AIBSNLEA, Com. S.Sivakumar, GS attended the meeting. The issues discussed are as under:-

AUAB meets the CMD BSNL - Discusses issues related to the revival package:-

Leaders of the AUAB met the CMD BSNL on 24.10.2019 evening after P.P. presentation and interactive session and discussed about certain issues related to the revival package approved by the Cabinet. Shri Arvind Vadnerkar, Director (HR) and Shri A.M. Gupta, GM (SR) was present. Com. P.Abhimanyu, Convenor, Com. Chandeswar Singh, Chairman, Com. K.Sebastin, GS,SNEA, Com.

The following issues were discussed.

At the outset of the meeting, the leaders appreciated the efforts taken by Shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL, for the efforts taken by him, for getting the allotment of 4G spectrum and other financial assistances to BSNL approved by the government. 

a) No rolling back of the retirement age to 58 years.

Even in yesterdays meeting, the CMD BSNL stated that the option of rolling back of the retirement age to 58 is still there with the DoT/government. The AUAB submitted its letter to the CMD BSNL, signed by all the above mentioned leaders, demanding that the retirement age should not be rolled back to 58 years, by advancing the reasonings as to why it should not be done. CMD BSNL assured that the letter would be forwarded to the government. 

b) Facing the shortage of manpower, consequent to the implementation of the VRS. 

It is pointed out by the AUAB that, after the implementation of the VRS, there will be acute shortage of manpower and the work load will increase tremendously. Consequently, the quality of the services will be badly affected, if suitable remedial measures are not taken. The CMD BSNL shared the concern of the AUAB. However, he stated that, the situation is fluid now and that appropriate action would be taken depending upon the situation. 

c) As per Rules, commutation of Pension can be done when the employee is alive. Now, as per the Cabinet decision, Pension will be settled only on the date of actual retirement of the employee who opts for VRS. In case, if a VRS optee dies before the date of his actual retirement, then his/her family cannot get the benefit of commutation of pension. The AUAB demanded that this issue should be resolved. The CMD BSNL assured that needful would be done.

d) Sending back the officers to their parent circles to facilitate settlement of their pension.

The AUAB pointed out that the officers who have already been transferred to far-away places and who will be availing VRS, will have to be sent back immediately to their parent circles, to facilitate settlement of their pension. This is because; pension can be settled only by their parent circles, argued the leader. The CMD BSNL appreciated the concern of the leaders and assured that needful would be done in this regard.

24-10-2019

Dear GS, 

 

During the meeting with CMD BSNL and DoT, the following two points may be discussed please.  


1.The limit of exemption of any amount received by an employee of a public sector company at the time of his voluntary retirement in accordance with any scheme of voluntary retirement was fixed at Rs.5,00,000/-  by the Finance Act 1993. Before 01-04-1993 any amount received by a Public Sector employee was exempt from income tax.  It has been more than 26 years since the limit was revised.  Hence, this may be considered upward revision.


2. Payment of gratuity after attaining the age of superannuation (now 60) or after 5 years, whichever is earlier.  Here, it may be emphasized that after attaining the age of deemed superannuation date from time to time as decided by the Organization.  Now it is 60 after some time if it is reduced to 58, the settlement to be made at 58, ie the date of superannuation.  Say an employee now 56 years will receive the gratuity on completion of age of 60 years as per rules the existing rules. Suppose, if superannuation age is reduced at a later date, he has to receive at 58 (need not wait for two more years.)

                

                                                                                      With Regards,

                                                                                                                         Sd…

                                                                                              Circle Secretary,

                                                                                          AIBSNLEA, TN Circle.

GM in the E-7 Scale before the implementation of the proposed VRS in BSNL. After detailed discussion, Director (HR) assured to look in to the matter. GS handed over a letter addressed to Director (HR) in this regard.

C) Amendments in Deputation Policy: We requested Director (HR) to review the Deputation Policy in the background of present financial crunch of BSNL. So many executives in various Grades have applied for deputation to various Organizations and waiting for forwarding of their applications. We suggested that it is the high time to amend the Deputation Policy and forward the eligible applications to the concern Organizations since BSNL Management is struggling for timely disbursement of salary to its employees. Director (HR) assured to discuss the matter with the CMD BSNL for further decision. GS handed over a letter addressed to Director (HR) in this regard.

G) Request for remittance of recoveries from Salary to concerned authority: We brought to the notice of Director (HR) that the recoveries from Salary viz: GPF, Bank Loan EMIs, Society, LIC and PLI etc. have not been remitted to the Concerned Authorities since last five months. Due to non-remittance of the above said dues, employees are suffering a lot. BSNL Employees are not able to get GPF advance/withdrawal and Society Loan etc., for celebrating Diwali festival. Further, the negligence and fault on the part of the Management towards the delayed payment of Bank Loan EMIs resulting in imposition of Penal interest on the employees by the Bank Authorities.

We requested Director (HR) at least two or three months LIC/ PLI premium recoveries may be released for remittance before the end of this month so that the Policies will be alive since for the past five months it has not been remitted. Director (HR) after patient hearing assured to look in to the matter. GS handed over a letter addressed to Director (HR) in this regard.

Message to our GS

Dear GS,

As you are aware well, the recoveries made from the Salary of the Employees are NOT remitted to the Banks, LIC, GPF, Society etc.

In this connection I wish to request you to kindly take up with the Management to give TOP priority to the recovery towards LIC. LIC premiums are not remitted for the last 5 months. If the same is not remitted this month also, then the policy will be made inactive and claim for any fatal incidents will not be honoured by the LIC. Also for the survivors, they have to go for medical examination for renewal.

Hence the recovery towards LIC/PLI premium amount may be arranged to be remitted before end of this month either in full or at least two or three months so that the policies will be alive.

16-10-2019

Transfer Cases of DEs/DGMs

 

There is no justification on the part of the Management not considering the request transfers to the DGMs/DEs those who are transferred out of their Home Circle on Promotion/Longstanding basis even after completing two years stay and also crossed 58 years of age.

 

The officers those who have obeyed the orders of the BSNL CO and joined in the new place of Posting on Promotion/Transfer shall be honoured by the Management by considering their transfer request on completion of two years of stay at least on OWN Cost. Moreover they have crossed 58 years of age and about another six months over. At least now, if the transfer orders are issued; it will take two to three months for getting relief and joining in their Home Circle and they can stay in their home circle at the verge of their retirement.

 

The new policy of the Management for considering the request transfer only on completion of 59 years of age is NOT AT ALL JUSTIFIED. Posting of substitute for considering their requests is also NOT CORRECT. One side the Management is recommending for reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58. Another side reduction of staff through VRS is also being discussed. If any of one of the above proposals is implemented, then from where they will get substitutes. There are DEs eligible for look on DGMs available in those Circles and after issue of promotion orders in the cadre of DE/AGM, sufficient AGMs are also available.

 

Hence considering the request transfer of DGMs/DEs is highly justified and the CHQ should demand for issue of transfer orders for all the DGMs/DEs those who have completed two years stay on own cost.

03-10-2019

Congratulations!

Time Bound Up-gradation of Executives E-5 to E-6 (JAG NFSG) – in respect of Engineering Officers,  Order has been issued for the first set, on 01.10.2019, the date from which they are due. Orders for the left out officers will be issued soon.

Hats off to the Management & HR Wing!!

We expect the orders will be issued for Finance Officers also early.

In an interview to National Herald Comrade S. Sivakumar, GS, AIBSNLEA told the reporter that BSNL delays salary again.

The employees of the state-run Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) have not got their salaries for two months in a row and those employed with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) have not got their September salary.

MTNL employees have not got their August and September salary. Their July salary was credited in the last week of September. There has been silence since then about the salaries due for the month of August and September. 

“After much deliberation, the July salary was credited just a few days ago. August and September salaries are now pending. We will protest soon,” said AK Kaushik, general secretary of the Telecom Executive Association of MTNL (Delhi-Mumbai). 

In case of BSNL, this is the third consecutive month where salaries have been delayed. The employees got their August salary after it was delayed for almost 20 days. Now, the employees expect a similar delay for the September salary too. Earlier, this year the February salary was paid much later in March. 

The BSNL trade unions have called for a “lunch-hour demonstration” on Tuesday, October 1, to protest against salary delay and non-payment of wages to contract workers and total ban on capital expenditure. BSNL has demanded that the government must take the responsibility of paying all the BSNL employees it is the owner of the company. 

The unions have demanded allotment of 4G Spectrum, land monetisation, payment of salary by due date, payment to contract workers and implementation of third pay revision. The payment of pension contribution by BSNL, as per government rules, is also on their charter of demands. 

Salaries of both BSNL and MTNL are supposed to be credited on the last working day of the month. BSNL’s salary expenses are about ₹800 crore, as the firm employs 1,63,902 personnel, of which, 46,597 are executives and 1,17,305 non-executives. MTNL has about 22,000 employees and the salary expenses come up to Rs 160 crore. 

BSNL Revival Plan

A group of secretaries was asked to study and decide on the fate of the ailing PSU. No conclusive consensus has been reached yet. A meeting called by the principal secretary to the PM PK Mishra to also reach a decision about the fate of BSNL and MTNL did not reach a conclusion. It was attended by the top officials of BSNL, MTNL, officials from the PMO and Niti Aayog. 

BSNL has been seeking the allocation of 4G spectrum, but the government has not yet allotted it. “Now, the government is asking for guarantees that the allocation of 4G spectrum would help in reviving BSNL,” explained S Sivakumar, General Secretary of BSNL Executive Association.
