Meeting between Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL - A historical meeting:

A meeting is held at the Sanchar Bhawan today the 24.02.2018, between Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL (AUAB). Together with the Minister, Secretary, DoT, Special Secretary, DoT, Joint Secretary (Admn.), DoT, DDG (Esst), DoT, Shri Anand Kumar, OSD to the Hon’ble Minister, CMD BSNL and Director (HR) BSNL were present. From the All Unions and Associations of BSNL, Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, Com. Chandeswar Singh, GS, NFTE, Com. K. Sebastin, GS, SNEA, Com. Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com. K. Jayaprakash, GS, FNTO, Com. N.D. Ram, GS, SEWA BSNL, Com. Ravi Shil Verma, GS, AIGETOA, Com. Mallikarjuna, President, BSNL MS and Com. S.D. Sharma, GS, BSNL ATM, participated in the discussions. The representatives of the AUAB heartily thanked the Hon’ble Minister for taking out time to meet them. Detailed discussions took place on the memorandum submitted to the Hon’ble Minister, the details of which are as follows:-

1.  3rd Pay Revision.

So far, the DoT has been maintaining that BSNL employees are not eligible for 3rdPay Revision. In today’s meeting the Hon’ble Minister agreed that the issue of 3rdPay Revision of BSNL employees would be processed and would be taken for the approval of the DPE and the Cabinet. This is a great achievement. We have broken the stalemate that prevailed in the Pay Revision issue. At the same time we have to be vigilant, till the final approval is given by the Cabinet.

2.  Formation of Subsidiary Tower Company.

The AUAB representatives expressed their apprehension that in the name of formation of the Tower Company, the 66,000 mobile towers of BSNL are being snatched away from BSNL. They also pointed out that the decision of the Cabinet that, the Subsidiary Tower Company would remain under the control of BSNL Management, has been violated, through the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of Subsidiary Tower Company. They further pointed out that even BSNL Management was not taken in to confidence in the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, which clearly shows that the Subsidiary Tower Company would not be under the control of BSNL Management. The reply given by the Hon’ble Minister in this regard is not satisfactory. The AUAB has to find ways and means to ensure the rolling back of the Subsidiary Tower Company.

During the discussions on the issue, GS AIBSNLEA raised the issue of additional increment on post based promotions under the provisions of executive promotion policy provisions which has been denounced by DoT vide letter dated 05.07.2017 and lakhs of rupees recoveries are taking place of BSNL executives and BSNL pensioners. He instantly submitted Hon’ble PB CAT judgment copy to Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) wherein the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 has been quashed. Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) immediately directed DoT administration to look into the matter.  Now, we can expect that DoT may not go for appeal against the PB CAT order in this regard after this meeting.

3.  Pension Revision.

The representatives of AUAB strongly argued that pension revision should be done to the BSNL pensioners. It was pointed out that the BSNL pensioners and the Central Government pensioners are covered by the same rules. They argued that when pension revision is settled for the Central Government pensioners, the same should not be denied to the BSNL pensioners. The Hon’ble Minister assured that needful action would be taken to settle this issue. 

4. Calculation of Pension Contribution.

It was strongly argued that pension contribution in respect of BSNL employees cannot be calculated on the basis of maximum of the pay scale, when the same is calculated on the basis of actual basic pay, in the case of Central Government employees. It was pointed out that as per the DoP&T order issued in 2006, pension contribution of the Central Government employees is being deducted on the basis of actual pay only. The Hon’ble Minister directed the Secretary, DoT, that this issue should be settled as per Government orders.

5.Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL.

The AUAB representatives pointed out that it will be extremely difficult for BSNL to compete with the private operators, without providing 4G service. They strongly argued that the proposal of the BSNL Management, for the allotment of 4G spectrum by the Government, should be accepted. The Hon’ble Minister replied in the positive and assured that needful action would be taken.

6. Reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58.

The AUAB representatives strongly argued that the retirement age of the BSNL employees should not be reduced from 60 to 58, as a measure for the revival of BSNL. The Hon’ble Minister told that the government is not having any proposal to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58.

7.Left out issues of the 2nd PRC.

The AUAB representatives pointed out that this issue is lingering on very long time and needs to be settled. The Hon’ble Minister stated that this issue would be looked into by the Secretary, DoT.

At the end of the meeting, the Hon’ble Minister stated that the representatives of AUAB could meet him again, as well as the Secretary, DoT, in continuation of today’s meeting. The representatives of AUAB heartily thanked the Minister for his positive response to most of the issues.

After the meeting with the Hon’ble Minister, a meeting of the AUAB was held in the FNTO’s office. All the General Secretaries expressed their satisfaction with regards to the progress in the issues. They also expressed the view that all these have happened only because of the united struggles and massive mobilization by the entire Non-Executives and Executives, for which they deserve appreciation.

Meeting with Secretary (Telecom), DoT:

GS along with GS / BSNLEU and GS / SNEA met Secretary (Telecom), DoT and requested for considering the BSNL’s proposal for implementation of 3rd PRC recommendation with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL. We expressed our concern that the BSNL Board recommendations in this regard are pending in DoT for the last three months but no steps have been taken so far for its implementation. We further requested that DoT should relax the “Affordability Clause” of 3rd PRC or should take relaxation from Union Cabinet in the interest of BSNL and its employees. We pleaded that BSNL employees are working with their full commitment for the growth of BSNL and also timely completing the various Govt. projects like BHARAT NET, NFS & LWE etc.

Pay revision in BSNL is must to keep motivated the BSNL employees and in the interest of the viability of BSNL. Delay in consideration of pay revision has caused serious frustrations, resentment and demotivation amongst the BSNL employees. We explained that most of the BSNL employees were DoT employees only before their absorption in BSNL and as per Govt. of India Policy, after formation of the BSNL they exercised their option for taking absorption in BSNL under the assurances of better pay, promotion and pension but now the same is being deprived off on one pretext or another.

Regarding pension revision of BSNL pensioners, we apprised her that DoT Pension Cell is linking the pension revision with the pay revision of BSNL serving employees which is not justified since the BSNL pensioners are not related with the affordability of BSNL. During their service, their pension contribution has already been paid to DoT. The DDG (Estt) every time is explaining that in case the pension revision is done for BSNL pensioners without the pay revision of BSNL serving employees there will be anomalies in the pension. He is explaining that in case the pension is revised without considering the pay revision of BSNL serving employees, in that case BSNL pensioners retired prior to 01.01.2017 will draw more pension than the BSNL pensioners who retired or retiring after 01.01.2017. In this regard, we requested Secretary (Telecom) for her kind intervention for resolving the issue.

Secretary (Telecom), after giving patient hearing assured an early action in this regard and mentioned that Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) is also telling in all the meetings that we will consider the case. We extended thanks for granting the meeting.

Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi issues orders in OA No. 2649 quashing DOT Order dated 5/7/2017:

Congratulations! AIBSNLEA's consistent efforts yielded results in getting delivered a favourable judgment by the Hon'ble PBCAT New Delhi for quashing the DoT letter dated 05.07.2017 which rescinded grant of an extra increment on post based promotion under EPP. Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi has issued orders in OA No. 2649 quashing DOT Order dated 5/7/2017. While writing the judgment Hon'ble PBCAT has mentioned that "The applicants have basically prayed for retention of para I.II (v) of the EPP (Annexure A-2, which has been duly approved by the Government according to its policy. There has been no policy change as such in the Government in regard to the service conditions of the BSNL employees. The controversy has arisen only on account of P&T audit unnecessarily trying to compare financial upgradation under the EPP with that under the MACP, not realizing that these two schemes are applicable to two separate set of employees.

11. In the conspectus of the discussions in the foregoing paras as well as considering the background of introduction of EPP, I am of the view that the impugned Annexure A-1 order dated 05.07.2017 is not at all legally as well as ethically justifiable. Its retention would create trust deficit between the BSNL employees and the Central Government, which is also unwarranted. Hence, I quash and set aside the impugned Annexure A-1 order dated 05.07.2017. Accordingly, the OA stands allowed.

<<<Click here for the judgment copy >>>>>>

This judgment is a glaring example about the of working of AIBSNLEA which fights sincerely and legally for the interests of all employees without any discrimination.

Meeting with Dir (HR) BSNL Board: GS, President AGS (HQ) and AGS (Finance) met Dir(HR) BSNL Board and discussed regarding

a) Implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL: We requested Dir (HR) to use her good office in getting cleared BSNLs proposal for 3rd PRC implementation from DOT. Dir (HR) mentioned that BSNL Board approval on 3rd PRC implementation was sent to DOT one month before but till date it is pending and no body from DOT is discussing the matter with BSNL management. Thus the matter has to be discussed with Secretary Telecom and Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) for their kind intervention and its implementation. We expressed our concern that BSNL only is executing the dream project of Hon'ble Prime Minister regarding NOFN work (Bharat Net Project), NFS Work and LWE project etc. and now Govt. is neglecting BSNL workers for their wage revision by telling implementation 3rd PRC is not justified.

b) Withdrawal of Tower Subsidiary:  Dir (HR) mentioned that the decision on creation of Tower Subsidiary and appointment of CMD Tower Subsidiary has been taken by Govt. and now any review may be done by Govt. only. The matter has to be taken up with Hon'ble MOSC (I/C).

c) Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy: We requested for implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy by including our views / suggestion in the draft proposal of Pers. Cell BSNL CO. Dir (HR) mentioned that some views/ suggestion given by our Association are taken into consideration and the same will be placed before next board Meeting scheduled to be held on 8th Feb-2018. She assured that some more modifications as suggested by our Association may be considered after the approval of BSNL Board.

d) Holding of CPCs to fill up vacant Group-B and Group-A equivalent posts:  We expressed our serious concern against non-filling up of the vacant Group-B & Group-A equivalent posts of all the disciplines on the pretext of pending Court Cases.
