Dear Comrades,

We have taken up the case with the PGM(F) to give DGMF( L/A ) promotion to the CAOs instead of IFA arrangement.

It is agreed and L/A promotion is considered for the vacant DGMF post at Circle Office. CS is promoted as DGM (Taxation).

The same will be considered for the SSAs also on need basis  after  completion of  BA merger activities.

Thanks to PGM(F) & DGM (F) and Finance wing Officers.

 We explained our concern that salary to BSNL employees should be paid on due date keep them motivated. Also clearly payments of electricity bills to avoid disconnections and payment to vendors against AMC to maintain uninterrupted services Director (Finance) mentioned that he is equally concern for the payment of Salary on due date and other payments but the salary payment alone needs 1300 Crores and other payments 900 Crores per month, whereas monthly revenue collection is less than 1300 Crores. In case the other payments are released, salary may be delayed. However to meet this requirement, efforts are being made to take some funds from DoT, loan from banks etc. But taking bank loans cannot be the permanent solution. He advised that by any means daily revenue collection has to be increased by reducing the expenses and fetching more and more revenue with the existing services. Banking sector is also reluctant in giving loan in the Telecom Sector due to huge NPA.

CS writes to GS for taking up the transfer cases of DGM (Engg.)

Respected Comrade,

Sub: Request Transfers in the cadre of DGM (Engg.) - reg.

Most of the DGMs transferred out of TN Circle during 2017 have completed / completing Two Years of Service by June-2019.

Hence the cases may be taken up at appropriate level at BSNL CO for issue of transfer orders to those who are completing two years up to Jun-2019, before issue of promotion / posting orders of Adhoc DGMs, so that they can be accommodated in their home SSA/Station.

Also in Tamilnadu Circle, the eligible candidates for DGM promotion are higher than the vacancies available as on date. Hence it is requested that while arriving vacancies, the retirement vacancy up to 31.03.2020 or at least up to Dec-2019 may be taken into account so that the seniors at the verge of retirement may be accommodated in TN Circle itself. 

With regards,                     

Circle Secretary
