Record of discussions of the meeting of  United Forum with Director (HR), BSNL Board held on 06.01.2017:

A meeting of leaders of the United Forum, comprising of GS- AIBSNLEA, GS- AIGETOA & GS-AITEEA held with full HR Team of BSNL Corporate Office under  the Chairmanship of Director (HR), BSNL Board for two and half hours on the invitation of BSNL management in backdrop of our ongoing Protest Program against the agitation notice served on 15th Dec 2016. The meeting was held in congenial environment and point wise deliberation held in accordance with the notice. The point wise discussion was held as below:

1.Recognition to AIBSNLEA in leading Circles/SSAs:

United Forum requested for extending the recognition to AIBSNLEA as majority association in circles where AIBSNLEA has won. The management side informed that legal opinion has been sought. GS AIBSNLEA requested that he has submitted some fresh inputs and decision may be taken after examining those inputs. Director (HR) assured to look into the same.

It was also highlighted to the Director (HR) that the facility for subscription deduction has yet not been given to AIGETOA. AIGETOA has submitted fresh request and the same may be extended to AIGETOA. Director (HR) told to GM (SR) to take necessary action in this regard. Further, she assured us that informal meetings shall be granted, as and when required.

2.Extension of Rs 22820/- as initial basic to JTOs/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007:

The management and the leaders of united forum discussed the matter in details and it was finalized that Committee formed to extend Rs 22820/- as initial basic for post 01.01.2007 recruited executives as per the meeting of the leaders of the United Forum with CMD on 22ndDec 2016 will submit its report expeditiously and recommendations shall be processed in one month to submit it for the approval of the board.

3.Replacement of intermediate Pay Scale of E1A, E2A by standard pay scale of E2, E3 for JTO and SDE equivalent:

Director (HR) told that the management is of the opinion that standard pay scale of E2-E3 for JTO-SDE equivalent should be implemented in BSNL but she also agreed that the issue has got stuck up in DoT and not moving on expected lines.  We requested that since there is agitation among the Executives, it is the best time to put pressure on DoT to finalize the standard scale of E2-E3. It was assured that the CMD and Director (HR) will meet to the Secretary DoT in next week and press for approval of E2-E3 for JTO-SDE equivalent by DoT. The association will follow up with the Director (HR) on the issue and take decision according to the situation.

4.Extension of 30% Superannuation Benefits to BSNL recruited employees:

It was informed by the Director (HR) that all pre-requisite have been completed and the trust has been formed. Now the composition of trust and the company to manage the corpus have to be approved by BSNL Board in its upcoming meeting. The quantum and date of effect as 01.01.2007 will be taken care after inception of the policy on paper. She assured us that she is very considerate on the issue and will definitely look forward to increase the quantum and revision in date of implementation.

5.Implementation of CPSU Hierarchy in line with Khan Committee Report:

It was brought to the notice of Director (HR) that how Personnel cell can formulate CPSU policy without taking into account our inputs as United Forum represents a major group in BSNL and the BSNL recruited executives shall be the most effected persons with this policy. We categorically told that any compromise with the interests of the executives shall result into protest both through organizational actions as well as legally. Director (HR) appreciated the concern and instructed GM (SR) & PGM (Pers) that input of United Forum should also be taken into account and CPSU Policy shouldn�t be finalized without the concurrence of United Forum leaders. The related approval in this regard may be obtained from her in the file.

6. Issuance of posting order of LDCE-2015 qualified candidates & modification of SDE RR:

It was apprised to us that the necessary formalities have been completed to delink the modification of SDE RR from BSNL Board and it will be once again finalized by the MC in a changed order. Only the concurrence of the members of the HR committee is required. It was informed to us that due to non-availability of JS (Admin), DoT because of his busy schedule, the same is withheld. We requested Director (HR) for her intervention in convening the meeting urgently which will pave the way of issue of promotion order of the LDCE-2015 qualified candidates. She assured that she will intervene personally to convene the meeting at the earliest. The whole process will tried to be completed in January 2017.

7.Immediate conduction of CPCs in all disciplines:

We expressed our serious concern that on the pretext of pending court cases all the CPCs are stalled.  It has caused stagnation and frustration among the executives ie.  JTO to SDE (T), SDE to DE, DE to DGM, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, CAO to DGM(F) JTO (TF) to SDE(TF), JTO(E/C) to SDE (E/C), SDE( C)to EE ( C) etc.  Director (HR) directed PGM (Pers) to look in to the matter for early filling up of the vacant Gr.B and A  Posts.

Instruction in this regard shall be issued to all CGMs. The association will follow up and try to ensure to issue of the letter from Corporate Office and relieving of our colleagues from Circle under Rule-8 in the current financial year.

9.Scrapping of MT RR/ DGM RR:

As agreed earlier, the decision shall be taken on MT RRs after discussions with majority association. For DGM RRs, the decision to scrap has already been taken earlier and necessary action in this regard shall be taken soon.

10.Notional Pay fixation of all upgraded pay scales w.e.f 1.10.2000 of JTO/SDE (C/E)/Arch/TF) and PA cadre: 

We requested to settle the issue by giving parity with JTO (T)/SDE (T) in this regard as while upgrading these cadres the parity w.r.t pay, qualification and designation have already been given.  It should not be relate with the JEs/AEs of Railway and CPWD departments as MC suggested.  Director (HR) assured to discuss the matter with PGM (Estt.) for an early solution.

11.Extension of one increment to LDCE 2012 passed candidates:  Issue shall be reexamined in light of the inputs submitted by us. 

12.Diversion of 50%MT quota CAO Posts to the seniority quota, extension of E1+5 increments to JTO SRD JAO-2013 and 2015 batches and E-5 to E-6 scale to DGMs (Adhoc):

Dear comrades,

Membership verification of Executive Association is over but against the killing of the democracy by BSNL Management wherein AIBSNLEA even after winning of 17 circles with majority votes has been declared as support association is not accepted.  Against this our struggle will continue in BSNL.  Already united Forum of BSNL executives Associations comprising AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and  AITEEA  has served a notice for organisational action programme commencing w.e.f  20th December 2016 against the non settlement of pending HR issues pertaining to pay, promotion and pension of the executives.  AIBSNLEA has secured 18377 votes during membership verification and has emerged as the second largest executive association. Hence it is the duty and responsibility of AIBSNLEA to protect the interest of these large numbers of executives.  In the name of recognised association we can't allow one association to play with the carrier of thousands of our members.  We have equal rights to protect the interest of our members and management cannot ignore our strength.  Hence, we are determined and committed to get resolved all important HR issues pertaining to pay, promotion and pension  of the executives. Let us be united under the umbrella of United Forum of BSNL executives Association comprising AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA to struggle and get settled the legitimate demands.   Unity is strength.  Some vested interests will always  try to break our unity but with our strong commitment and conviction of unity give them befitting reply by not allowing to weaken our unity. 

Misleading information given by one Association after the membership verification

On 14-12-2016, in continuation to the discussion on Tower Subsidiary issue with AST/DOT, the issue of replacement of Intermediate E1A and E2A scales by E2 and E3 was raised only by GS, AIBSNLEA and not by any other leader as claimed by GS, SNEA on his website.  AST replied that he is taking up the issue for approval of E1A and E-2A from Cabinet for those executives who have been recruited in E-1A and E-2A pay scales and the JTO/JAOs recruited subsequently will get E-1 scale only. 

Against this, GS AIBSNLEA pleaded that E-1A and E-2A scales were already approved by the DPE during 1st PRC and now E-1A and E-2A scales should immediately be replaced by E-2 and E-3 Standard Pay scales.  AST mentioned that in case E-1A and E-2A scales are replaced by E-2 and E-3 scales then there  is a  legal right of revision of E-3 by E-4, E-4 by E-5, E-5 by E-6,  E-6 by E-7, E-7 by E-8, E-8 by E-9 & E-9 by E-9A and he is fully convinced with this legal aspect.  Hence, DOT will sent both the proposals first to approve E-1A and E-2A intermediate Pay scales after 2nd PRC for those JTOs/JAOs equivalent who have been recruited in E-1A scales and the second proposal as per the BSNL's proposal to replace all the pay scales to the cabinet for consideration and approval.  We pleaded that sending the proposal will delay the matter hence, DOT should settle the scales in DOT itself.  AIBSNLEA strongly pleaded that since initial two scales of E1A and E2A are provisional and hence immediate replacement of E-1A &E-2A pay scales by standard pay scales of E-2 and E-3 is the necessity of the hour and all other scales can be decided subsequentlyThe issue was raised by the AIBSNLEA only in the said meeting with AST while the so called majority Association didn't prefer to raise the issue in that meeting.  AIBSNLEA is committed for replacement of E-1A and E-2A scales by Standard E-2 and E-3 pay scales by DOT before 3rd PRC. AIBSNLEA strongly protested against the degradation of the scales with AST‘s proposal to give E-1 pay scales to JTOs/JAOs.  It will degrade the status of JTO/JAO cadre in BSNL.  We expressed our firm opinion on replacing of initial two scales leaving aside all other scales and anomaliesThose claiming to be the saviours are actually the proponents of Cascading and intentionally they are passing the buck on other associations. Even after MV, they have not come out of the MV fever and still trying to befool the executives by claiming that they are doing everything while in actuality doing nothing except raising the false propaganda. We can understand their problem. They tried to suppress the information for reasons best known to them and when we apprised members of the actual position, they are just into the cover up mode. Even a small child will not accept this claim that somebody did not posted the information as there was strikeHow strike stops somebody from sharing the full information while information pertaining to Tower Subsidiary was uploaded without any delay.

The issue to release of recently held JE Examination was raised by the leaders of non-executive unions wherein AST expressed his ignorance but assured to look in to the matter

AITEEA extends its All out support to AIBSNLEA in the First MV to be held on 7.12.2016

All My dear Friends & Fraternity;

As all of you are well aware that AITEEA is pursuing hard the Pay Parity Issue (initial basic 22820 from DOA) of All Post 2007 Executives with respect to second PRC from the Ministry of Communication to the highest corridors of top Management. Since the inception of this association, we have not spared a single moment as a team & put all out efforts to raise this genuine demand of our pay loss at every avenue of Policy makers & before main stream associations. Now as membership verification is coming nearer & nearer, it seems as if All main stream association are willing to take our issue as their core agenda & in turn they need our support. This is among appreciable achievements of AITEEA as it has been successful in making it as the issue of All associations. Now we have to evaluate to whom we have to rely on & to whom we have to shed off. After major discussion with top leaders of All Main stream Associations & after thoroughly evaluating all pros and con's , it is decided by Our CHQ with consensus that AIBSNEA is the most Earnest who is willing to take up and resolve our issue genuinely before implementation of 3rd PRC. Therefore AITEEA extends its All out support to AIBSNLEA & request All its members specially to post 2007 Executive Fraternity & well-wishers to support AIBSNLEA in this membership verification. Now it is our duty to try our best to make AIBSNLEA no.1 association by casting our valuable vote at ballot no.1 for the sake of fastest resolution of our Pay Loss Issue. All our Circle/District Office bearers are requested to take it as Do or Die situation for the thumping majority of AIBSNLEA. -

GS-AITEEA

AIBSNLEA extends its sincere thanks and gratitude to AITEEA CHQ leadership & their entire membership thought-out the country for extending their valuable support and making AIBSNLEA No.1 Executive Associations by casting their vote to AIBSNLEA on 07.12.2016. AIBSNLEA ensures the settlement of their pay loss of JTO 2007 & 2008 batches and to bring them in IDA pay Rs. 22820/-. AIBSNLEA will not leave any stone unturned for the resolution of this issue. AIBSNLEA will always stand with AITEE to safeguard the interest of executives in BSNL and to save BSNL.

Membership Verification vis-à-vis the Role of AIGETOA

Rightly Said by one of the mainstream associations, the bargaining power depends on the majority of the recognized Association and that in turn decides the acceleration in settling the issues.
The Management’s vision on the ensuing Referendum is quite clear. The reply which they have submitted to AIGETOA states the purpose without any ambiguity. It is stated that Management wants to hold referendum as they want to take the view of the majority association on issues like Restructuring of BSNL, Rationalization of Posts, Recruitment of Management Services, cadres etc. Therefore, prime purpose of the referendum process is to recruit Management Trainees, DGMs in the middle management and curtailment in the number of Posts. Now we can understand the desperation level of those who were asking for referendum to happen. However, now when it is happening, it is duty of each and every executive that the right association should come forward. 
As far as the status of AIGETOA is concerned, we have been pursuing for separate representation status for BSNL Recruited Executives. Our case for separate recognition is being heard in Kolkata High Court and Court has stated that the current referendum is subject to outcome of the case. The case is listed for arguments next week. We hope for a positive outcome from the Hon’ble court. We are also thankful to AIBSNLEA for supporting the stand of AIGETOA and conveying to management that separate recognition for association of BSNL recruits should be ensured. Similarly, our circle bodies are pursuing their cases at Different Courts. We sincerely hope that a positive outcome will be there. Those who are saying that AIGETOA will not survive, are simply running into fools paradise, these are their day dreams or atmost some identity crisis syndrome. AIGETOA was, is and will remain as the custodian of the DR's Right and anybody claiming beyond that is a simple prejudice and nothing else. People are smart enough to realize and if anybody thinks that DRs can be forced to follow a cult syndrome, then that is again their day dream.
As we are aware that after the ensuing membership verification, there will be only two Associations in the BSNL and the policy matters and HR issues will be discussed and negotiated only with the majority Association. Therefore in the membership contest, it is very important that the number one association comes with a thumping majority so that the second association cannot become a hurdle in policy making. 
Therefore it becomes the duty of Electoral College to ensure that the scenario post referendum gives a clear mandate to the majority association so that the issues can be carried forward without any hitch and glitches. Accordingly, AIGETOA appeals to all the executives to ensure that votes remains in favor of the association which can carry the issues and aspirations of the whole executive fraternity. Accordingly, it is expected from each and every executive that they should cast their vote in favor of association which can carry their aspirations and issues effectively before management and does not become the tool for carrying forward the agenda of Management. Any vote which is not polled in favor is equivalent to voting against your own issues. So votes should positively be casted by every eligible executive and they should ensure the their vote should not go waste.
Now the question that comes in the mind that whom should the executives vote for. It is expected from each and every executive that he should be aware of his rights and his issues. He should remain aware of what is good for us and what is bad. Who can carry our aspirations and who can kill our future career. 
AIGETOA has always stood firm for the rights of the executives especially for the issues pertaining to the BSNL recruits. The burning issues vis-à-vis the stand of AIGETOA is as below:
Pay - We once again emphasize that AIGETOA is for replacement of initial two scales only. All other options can be explored later on when E1A and E2A are replaced by E2 and E3.
We have 
suggested merging of Sr. SDE scales and SDE scales which would entail the youngsters to reach E4 scale in 10 years of service instead of 15 years. Alternatively we gave a proposal to replace the initial two scales and that everything else can be taken care of later on once the standard pay scales are in place. We are against keeping an executive in E3 scale for 10 years. If any body needs five promotions assured, they may ask management to extend it to E7. This will give a great boost to the careers of the youngsters and assured time bound Promotions upto E7 level will end the stagnation in E6 level for seniors also. We are thankful to AIBSNLEA for carrying for supporting our cause. We are also thankful to them that they have clarified that if management comes with a proposal where initial two scales are replaced, the same will be acceptable to them. 
The Promotion is given as per EPP in every five years without keeping an executive in E3 scale for 10 years which can be discussed after the implementation of initial two scales, the same was acceptable to United Forum earlier also and same is acceptable to United Forum now also. Further, the talks of Financial implication of this proposal is also very less.
We are also thankful to AIBSNLEA for agreeing to carry forward the demand of Pay Parity of Executives recruited after 1.1.2007 with those recruited before 1.1.2007 i.e. Rs. 22820/- as initial basic. We are grateful that they have delinked initial basic of Rs. 22820/- with proposal of standard pay scales and are pursuing it as a separate demand so that the younger executives can at least overcome the burden of Pay Loss. AIGETOA is determined for the Resolution of Pay Anomaly though in different way i.e. E2 + 3 increments. However now that AIBSNLEA has agreed to carry forward this demand, AIGETOA will ensure that they don’t deviate from it post referendum. AIGETOA is also determined that mandatory provisions of second PRC recommendations is ensured before extending the third PRC Benefits. We are determined to go to any extent for that including legal means. 

The Pre-condition to put the Executives in E3 scale for 10 years was the prime reason for management offering the proposal of upgrading all scales as management was also not convinced on this unreasonable demand. Now this is for people to decide who wanted cascading and who did not.
Promotion -  AIGETOA is for securing the careers of thousands and thousands of the BSNL recruited executives. AIGETOA is for a career path where each and every executive who enters the department should have the path to reach the level of CMD. AIGETOA supports a stand where there is no limit of posts at AGM Level, there is no capping on AGM posts. AIGETOA supports a hierarchy where the promotions are not being talked up to the level of Sr. SDE. AIGETOA is in favor of a stand where there is no lateral recruitment above the level of JTO/JAO/Equivalent. AIGETOA wants a promotion mechanism where BSNL is free of words like MT, DGM recruitment. AIGETOA is for a promotional scheme which does not differentiate the selected 150 to reach upper scales and leaving all other executives in lurch. AIGETOA is in favor of implementing Khan Committee report in its true spirit not twisting and tweaking. AIGETOA wants to streamline the Rota amongst the executives in line with the quota from beginning. 
AIGETOA wants time bound functional promotion upto E7 becomes a reality for all executives. AIGETOA knows the difference between LDCE and that of LATERAL RECRUITMENT. AIGETOA Knows the difference between creating a new Cadre (MT) and giving promotions through LDCE.
AIGETOA agrees, accepts and states that there is huge talent pool available in BSNL and hence we don’t want middle management through Parachute Landing. Dream of AIGETOA is that one amongst us reaches to the esteemed post of CMD BSNL. AIGETOA is against bringing back the DoT legacy in BSNL where the group B officers were forced to retire without reaching STS level. AIGETOA cannot forget the talent of those who rendered services in BSNL for so many years. AIGETOA feels the blood of Executives is Fresh enough to take over the responsibilities of Middle and Higher Management in BSNL.
AIGETOA is thankful to AIBSNLEA for extending its helping hands in carrying forward the agenda of AIGETOA. It was because of AIGETOA’s struggle that MT has not been allowed in department till date. It is AIGETOA which stopped entry of MT in year 2008 and 2009 and together with AIBSNLEA in the year 2015-16. It is because we stopped MT, that so many seniors are now regular DGMs else that replication of old DoT era was not very far when Group B officers were forced to retire as PoTA DE.
AIGETOA is for parity between Executives getting promotion through LDCE and DPC. Hence AIGETOA wants that SDE RRs should be passed at the earliest. AIGETOA wants that executives waiting for their promotions for so many years should be promoted immediately without any further wait. AIGETOA wants that corrected seniority list should be submitted to court immediately so that promotions through DPC may be held smoothly. AIGETOA wants that promotion orders of the LDCE passed candidates be issued immediately and those trying to delay it and linking it through CPSU should be taught a lesson. AIGETOA is extremely thankful to AIBSNLEA for pursuing the agenda of Executives and sincerely hopes that long pending dispute of Rota in Quota shall be applied to executives promoted through all vacancy years. 
AIGETOA really appreciates them who went in the meeting with agitation withdrawal letter in their pocket in United Forum Struggle 2012. It was AIGETOA which took a firm stand that a committee should be constituted for examining the CPSU and Pay Scales Proposal else people were willing to withdraw just over a cup of tea with management and now claiming credit for constitution of Khan Committee. It was our vision that now the scales proposal and CPSU proposal is captured in black & white with positive recommendation.
AIGETOA is for extending one increment to all the executives whose promotion orders have been delayed by Management. We are thankful to AIBSNLEA for assuring that one increment shall be extended to all whose promotion orders have been delayed due to administrative reasons.
AIGETOA is for the welfare of DR fraternity and hence welcomes the support of AIBSNLEA as they have carried forward our agenda without any ambiguity and without any preconditions like executives should be forced to stay for 10 years in E3, Middle Management should have parachute landing in BSNL, one assured promotion in CPSU etc. etc. They are firm that executives should not be forced to stay in E3 for 10 years just like us, They are dead against recruitment of MT/DGM just like us, They want promotion channel with a path to reach the apex level just like us. We thank AIBSNLEA for the efforts they took to protect the interests of BSNL recruited Executives.
Pension - AIGETOA is against any Hypocrisy in this most important demand of BSNL recruits which pertains to the social security of them after retirement. AIGETOA wants full 30 percent SAB and any dilution in that is not acceptable. Those who are asking for 30 Percent Superannuation Benefit.. and keeping 6 Percent demand in their manifesto should at least make their calculations correct. AIGETOA is against anybody calling the demand of 12 Percent unrealistic. AIGETOA is against anybody not attending the meeting and saying others surrendered. There was a call for everybody in the meeting... General Secretary AIBSNLEA was also not in the station on that day but their AGS attended the meeting. AGS and President AIGETOA attended the meeting. President NFTE also attended the meeting. Those who did not even bother to send their representative in the meeting for reasons best known are now calling that they would have ensured more. Perhaps they were aware what is going to happen and wanted to wash their hands away from it and hence missed the meeting...That meeting paved the way for creation of Superannuation Trust for BSNL recruits.. That meeting Paved the way for revision of quantum of Superannuation Contribution after actuarial analysis...that meeting paved the way for revision in date of implementation ...and it is that meeting that Management is agreeing for increasing the quantum now. We are against this Hypocrisy of doing nothing when given a chance and then singing the song. We are thankful to AIBSNLEA for helping us towards resolution of the issues. We are thankful to them for actually working and not just singing the songs. ..
We want that who so ever comes first should carry forward the agenda of resolution of burning issues pertaining to all BSNL recruits. Accordingly we want the one who supports Merger of Sr. SDE and SDE cadres and extending Promotions as Per EPP. This will open the gates of E7 for seniors also. We want that somebody who comes first should defeat the designs of Management to recruit MTs and DGMs in the middle. We want somebody who sincerely and whole heartedly works for Pay Parity of the executives recruited after 01.01.2007. We want somebody who says demand of 12 Percent Superannuation is realistic, somebody who works for getting 30 Percent Superannuation Benefit on ground. We sincerely hope that all the executives will understand what is good for them and request them to be on the side where the resolution of the issue lies. We sincerely hope and believe that AIBSNLEA will come out with a thumping majority from the sample survey taken and we feel that our issues are in safe hands.With regard to the future of AIGETOA after referendum, our case for granting separate recognition to association for BSNL recruited Executives is under persuasion at Hon’ble Kolkata High Court by AIGETOA CHQ, Hon’ble Allahabad High Court by representatives of UP West and UP East Circle and at Hon’ble High Court at Cuttack by representatives of Odisha Circle. As you are aware that Hon’ble High Court admits the case only when there is merit in the case and accordingly we believe that Hon’ble Court of Law will consider our representation. On that front also, AIBSNLEA has supported us by writing to management for the separate representative status to association for BSNL recruited executives. Therefore, in the event of judgement coming in our favor, it becomes all the way necessary that both the representative association works in synch with each other for resolution of the issues. Further, the name of AIGETOA is associated with the fight for right...Till that fighting spirit is there inside us, any referendum, any recognition, any management can not stop us from fighting for our rights.
We find that AIBSNLEA is in our side on the issues and hence we appeal all the executives to be on AIBSNLEA side in referendum to be held on 7th December 2016 and vote for them.
