Congratulations !
Posting Orders issued to the DR JAOs.
Hearty Welcome to the fresh Executives.
JAOs are allotted to the needy SSAs to the maximum extent possible. Still there are some grievances with SSAs. 
CS addressed the CHQ to take up with BSNL CO to declare additional select list of 10 candidates against those who have not accepted the offer. 
On receipt of the same, we will take up with the PGMF for further allotment to the needy SSAs.

Filling up of CAO MT Quota vacancies:

SEA Section is adding fuel to the fire. Already the Sr.AOs/AOs are very much frustrated and agitated against the delay in promotion to the Cadre of CAO. Instead of promoting the eligible internal candidates, trying to fill up the MT Quota is unjustified and unwarranted.

Three years back 50 % of MT Quota in DE cadre is diverted to SCF Quota and the vacancies are filled up.

Our CHQ is trying now for utilizing of 50 % of MT Quota of CAO posts, which is still pending.

Even for filling up of remaining 50 % of MT Quota, management decision has to be taken. But MT RR is kept  pending as per the assurances given by the management to our Association after the trade union action programme conducted by AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA two years back.

Now unilaterally SEA section cannot initiate such proposal only for CAO cadre. Parity is to be maintained for all equivalent cadres.

CHQ is addressed on this issue.


CAO Promotion:

Inordinate delay in issue of promotion orders is beyond tolerance limit even after pronouncement of Final Judgement by the Highest Court .

Management has to take a decision in light of the Hon.ble Supreme Court Judgement on reservation points.

As per the decision taken in the CEC held at Madurai, CHQ is requested to initiate TU Action Programme demanding issue of CAO promotion without further delay
