Today 18 06 2018 in response to our letter to CGM CTD with copy to Dir(HR) & GS CGM called me over phone at about 12 noon. The initial reaction of CGM was that he is in receipt of the letter and he asked why letter is written without discussing the issue with him. He further said this time he is honuoring the letter, but next time he will send back the letter without giving any cognizance. He suggests that we must talk to him before writing any such letter. He further mentioned that whatever is being done is as per instruction of CMD and he will not learn rules and regulation from the Association. He emphasized that such letters will spread the negativity. Only AIBSNLEA is protesting the actions while other associations and unions are appreciating the actions and there by speaking positivity. He also alleged that we are trying to cover our member's inefficiency. While discussion he even questioned my performance as DE regarding collection of dues and retention of TD lines.
I politely replied that AIBSNLEA doesn't believe in negligence of duty and negativity. All the Accounts people who are doing commendable job are all our members.Our engineering members are also involved in discharging their duties with responsiblity and devotion against all odds. We only protested the illegitimate use of dies non and humiliation faced by the executives in the meetings. I also told why all the workloads of different jobs like retailer visit,franchisee SIM cell,collection of dues always given to CSC and external section.Why transmission and CMTS executives are excluded from these kind of jobs.Why exchange/DSLAM failure due to fibre cut and transmission issue are not restored in a time bound manner? He avoided the reply and suggested that the external units should submit a report calculating the loss for such disruptions.
Again I politely remind him that we are neither against the discipline imposition nor spreading negativity, rather,we always work hard and motivate our members to work for the development of CTD.But,we do not like to lose our dignity which we earned by serving in the department in a prolonged career. Present situation is demotivating the executives which is not acceptable to us.He said we should not accuse him personally, I replied in nowhere in that letter anybody is personally accused, only the repressive behaviour of the administration is being objected. At last he again reiterated that before writing any letter we should visit him and tell our grievances.And if any executive feels any problem he may go on leave.
The telephonic conversation lasted for about 15 minutes. Comrades, we feel the purpose of writing the letter has been achieved and we also consider the discussion as a positive consequence of the protest letter written by our mighty Association. What is painful is that the leaders of the other association are not projecting true feeling of their members to the management, but if CGM has to be believed, they are projecting the opposite picture to him. May be they are all afraid and doing so to please CGM. They should remember that as leaders they are duty-bound to serve their members not the management.
We can assure all executives that AIBSNLEA CTD will always rise to such occasions in any case of humiliation and unjustied steps taken by the Administration and will never be cowed down, come what may.

AIBSNLEA tried to get filled up all vacant 10,000 posts of SDE (T) but the Management took a decision to fill-up only 3,200 posts with respect to the LDCE conducted for the year 2009-10 and 2010-11 and rest of the vacancies they considered as under dispute and therefore left it. We will continue our efforts to get filled-up all these vacant posts.

Core Committee Members meeting with CMD BSNL:
CMD BSNL called a meeting of the core committee members of all Unions and Associations wherein Comrade GS along with core committee members i.e. GS.BSNLEU, GS/NFTE and GS/SNEA attended the meeting. CMD BSNL mentioned that joint efforts of BSNL Management and all employees are required to increase the revenue of BSNL.
CFA segment: He mentioned that Broad-band connections surrender is taking place due to speed limit constraints and FTTH growth is also not much. He further mentioned that we should explain the customers that Broad-band copper market is not for speed, it is for download wherein maximum 2Mbps to 20Mbps. The tariff under Rs. 99 Plan 70 GB down load is available for speed purpose Mbps Plan through FTTH should be recommended wherein the Exchange to Subscriber premises wireless network is being created on revenue sharing basis through channel partners immediately. CAPEX will be arranged to have our own wireless system.
Cable TV operators (Local TV) are also facing threat from JIO and now we will make them cannel partner on 50:50 revenue sharing basis. In this manner the Brad band target has now been increased to 20 times.
CM Segment: CMD mentioned that in CM segment 40% revenue has gone down which has affected cash flow. The main reason is that BSNL don’t have 4G spectrum and metro cities lie Delhi & Mumbai. Now BSNL decided to deal directly with retailers along-with franchises. The commission will be paid 12% whereas Reliance JIO is giving 9% and Airtel 5%. Proper monitoring system on retailers is very much required. Recently BSNL has signed an MoU with Patanjali Group and now offering a special plan of Rs. 144 with unlimited voice, 1.5GB data per day to all Patanjali card holders. Through this we should capture the market.
EB Segment: CMD informed that last year our revenue growth was positive in this segment by providing maximum lease line circuits after 7-8 months JIO is also entering in this field. To compete with now BSNL officers have to leave their rooms and go for marketing. And this moment is known“KAMRA CHODO - Leave the Rooms”. In this manner, CMD clarified that BSNL has to increase its revenue without depending on Govt support. At this stage, we can not ask Govt support in view of the implementation of 3rd PRC. We assured to discuss the matter and mobilize the employees in this regard.
Incentive to BSNL employees and BSNL pensioners: CMD informed that we are finalizing an incentive scheme under Marketing Cell to the BSNL employees and BSNL pensioners for selling the BSNL brands and to become channel partners.

BSNL Corporate Office revises the seniority list 147 LDCE passed executives of TES Gr. "B" equivalent to SDE (T). <<Click here for letter>>>
Judgement dated 05.06.2018 in OP(CAT) No.45/2015 on the files of Hon’ble High Court of Kerala:
The judgement in the above case along with other connected cases was pronounced by the Division Bench of the Hon’ble High Court comprising Hon’ble Mr.Justice. C.T Ravikumar & Hon’ble Mr.Justice. K.P.Jyothindranath on 05.06.2018 when AIBSNLEA counselor Advocate Benny M John appeared on behalf of AIBSNLEA, the 16th respondent.
The prima facie understanding regarding the judgment is as follows:
* The main findings of the Tribunal were not interfered by the Court.
* The final eligibility list is to be prepared within 6 months and provisional promotions can be done on a 1:1 ratio equally from the senior most promotees and senior most direct recruitees.
* It seems some contrary observations and directions in the judgment and the same can be detailed only on receipt of the certified copy of the judgement.
AIBSNLEA has applied for the certified copy of the judgement and the same will be shared on receipt.
Misleading information by AIGETOA against AIBSNLEA posted on their website dated 30.05.2018.
AIGETOA in their website as updated on 30.05.2018 the GS AIBSNLEA falsely indicated AIGETOA name about the Allahabad court case and un-necessarily bothered Director (HR) for the reasons best known to him. This update on AIGETOA CHQ website is false and un-called for a responsible Association without verifying the facts. The fact remains that AIBSNLEA CHQ Office Bearers had meeting with Director (HR) in the presence of GM (Pers.) and demanded to issue JTO to SDE (T) SCF quota promotions also since these JTOs are waiting for their first promotion since 1995 JTO Recruitment year. Director (HR) appreciated our concern and asked GM (Pers.) to explain the bottle neck in the promotion of JTO to SDE (T) SCF quota, if any. GM (Pers) explained that the court case in the Hon’ble High Court, Kerala has been listed for pronouncement of the judgment on 4th June 2018 and one more court case stay order is pending in the Hon’ble High Court Allahabad and in this regard yesterday GS AIGETOA has assured him to get withdraw the court case by tomorrow itself. After hearing this reply Director (HR) immediately spoke with CGMT Kerala Circle and directed him to take all the efforts through BSNL’s advocate to get the judgment pronounced on 4th June itself wherein CGMT Kerala Circle assured her to get the judgment pronounced on 4th June 2018. Just after this, Director (HR) immediately called the GS AIGETOA in her chamber and advised him to ensure withdrawal of court case from Allahabad High Court by tomorrow itself and GS AIGETOA assured for its compliance by tomorrow. During these discussions, AIBSNLEA CHQ Office Bearers were present but they did not interact in between and never implicate the name of AIGETOA in it. Both the above actions of Director (HR) were based on the feedback given by the GM (Pers) only. Thus the allegation of GS AIGETOA against GS AIBSNLEA is false and uncalled for.
AIBSNLEA is working and safe guarding the interests of entire BSNL executive’s community in true sense which can be witnessed since its inception in the year 2004. AIBSNLEA need not to learn the functioning from the friendly Association. With the untiring efforts of AIBSNLEA only the BSNL Management decided to initiate CPCs to fill-up the vacant Group “B” and Group “A” level posts (up to DGM level) and after this decision, AIBSNLEA promptly persuaded to issue promotion orders wherever it is immediately possible. About 2000 LDCE qualified JTOs were waiting for their posting on promotions due to SC/ST Roster implementation court case and SDE RR modifications. BSNL Management responded positive to our demand and immediately issued modified SDE RRs. These two decisions paved the way to issue promotion orders of LDCE passed JTOs to the post of SDE (T) and accordingly, Management issued the promotion orders of 1987 SDEs of LDCE quota.
To continue the process, AIBSNLEA emphasized BSNL Management to speed up CPCs work to fill-up all vacant SDE/AO and DE/CAO equivalent posts before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. Whereas, the fact remains that the so called joint forum is continuously pressurizing BSNL Management for immediate implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy without holding of CPCs. The executives can analyse the truth with the ongoing developments for the last three years where more than 2000 LDCE qualified JTOs were waiting for their SDE promotion and the 4500 JTOs are waiting for the last 22 years for their first promotion to SDE cadre under SCF quota.
WHAT THESE MIGHTY ASSOCIATIONS WERE DOING FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS? Now every body is trying to take the credit for the promotions, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy etc when these are becoming reality. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy was demanded by AIBSNLEA in the year 2011 where a committee headed by Shri S.R. Kapoor, the then PGM (FP) was constituted thereafter again another committee headed by the then PGM (SR) Shri N.K. Narang was constituted but both the committees failed to submit the report. Thereafter, a new committee headed by the then ED (NB) Shri M.A, Khan was constituted wherein AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA were the members from Association side and after many marathon meetings the committee report was submitted which was twisted by Pers Cell BSNL Corporate Office in close coordination with the so called majority Association after referendum and with the support of their associate Association of Joint Forum. But, with the timely action taken by AIBSNLEA, many important modifications / improvements were incorporated in the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. AIBSNLEA always demanded cut-off date from the last CPC or from the year of recruitment and some more issues but BSNL Board approved it with prospective date of implementation which AIBSNLEA protested and demanded immediate holding of CPCs to fill up the vacant SDE/AO, DE/CAO and equivalent posts before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy to save the executives from humiliation because after CPSU cadre Hierarchy implementation all the existing RRs and posts of Group “B” and STS equivalent will be abolished and under new promotion policy. Under this CPSU Cadre Hierarchy these SDEs/ AOs equivalent executives are first to be promoted to the functional post of Sr. SDE/ Sr. AO equivalent and thereafter to the post of DE/CAO. It will further stagnate the existing SDEs and AOs who are waiting for their DE/CAO promotion.
Whether the so called joint forum leaders are not aware of the facts that BSNL Management is intending to notify MT Recruitment simultaneously with the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy? If known, why they are hiding this fact from their members? Since they claim that they were involved in the process of finalization of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and what is their stand now?
AIBSNLEA has cleared its view to the BSNL Management on all the occasions whether it is during discussions or in writing to oppose MT Recruitment at STS level. Thus AIBSNLEA in true sense trying to protect the interest of entire executive community in BSNL rather than playing with the career prospects of executives in BSNL. Let the executives be understand the game plan of the so called Joint Forum Associations from the above facts.

Issue of Additional Increment on regular promotion to a scale.
BSNL Corporate Office today circulated a copy of the DoT letter number 40-12/2004-Pen(T) (Pt.) dated 17.05.2017 for compliance by all units of BSNL. According to this letter, in order to process the pension case an undertaking from the retiring BSNL employees may be obtained to the effect that in case the court cases filed against the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 are decided in favour of DoT, the retiree shall refund the over-paid amount on account of grant of an extra-increment on post based promotion under the EPP of BSNL.
Since, the case for quashing the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 has been filed and won by AIBSNLEA but DoT continued to reduce the pay before retirement.
