Refuting SNEA's derogatory remarks about AIBSNLEA while reporting JTO to SDE promotion case:

Regarding JTO to SDE promotion related case (OP CAT-45/2015 and similar OP) in Hon. High Court of Kerala, SNEA(I) is simply trying to misguide general members by giving false and derogatory comments about AIBSNLEA while reporting news of the court proceedings in their website. 
Being an impleading respondent in OA filed in CAT and a respondent in subsequent OP-CAT now pending in HC of Kerala, AIBSNLEA filed our version (in support of BSNL, the main respondent) in the appropriate courts at the appropriate time. Our role, as in the case of all other impleading respondents, was to support BSNL's stand which is correct and legal as per various rules and procedures for fixation of seniority of JTOs, preparation of eligibility list, and several other related issues involved in this case. We did this job through the advocate representing AIBSNLEA.
It is to be noted that AIBSNLEA is the only association impleaded in this case in its own name in the capacity as an association of executives, initially at the time of coming this matter as an OA in the CAT Ernakulam and then became a respondent in OP-CAT at High Court of Kerala when appeal was filed by petitioners. The petitioners were a group of direct recruited (DR) JTOs, but their contentions were not acceptable as per rules. SNEA(I) is not a party in this case as an association, though some of their affected members got impleaded in this case.
AIBSNLEA was bold enough to appear as impleading party in the case and expressed our stand openly in public as we have nothing to hide. By impleading in the association's name, we wanted to protect the justified and genuine interests of all general members.
The other association was not concerned about this, but they only wanted to play behind the screen, giving a space for twisting their stand between DR JTOs and JTOs recruited during 1996 to 2000, according to their will and wish. Initially they played "a hide and seek game" and did not become an impleading respondent, as they wanted favors from both sides in view of referendum. In fact they have no right to comment on AIBSNEA in this regard as they are not at all a party in the party-array of this case. Honorable members are requested to realize the cheap politics now being played by that association with an ill-motive of defaming this organization.

23-02-2017

GS met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding filling up of vacant posts of DEs/CAOs & DGMs. We requested that about 2000 DEs posts, 1000 CAOs posts and about 400 DGM(Engg.) & 100 posts of DGM(Fin.) are vacant. Similarly, about 160 EEs(Civil) posts are also vacant but the vacant posts of DEs/CAOs/EEs(Civil) are not being filled up on the pretext of pending court cases. From DE to DGM, CAO to DGM(Fin.) no court case is pending hence all these posts should be filled up immediately to meet the requirement of field units & to remove the stagnation in the career prospective of Group-'B' level executives. CMD appreciated our concern and assured to discuss the matter with Director(HR) for an early action.

We also requested for the implementation of 3rd PRC report with full fitment benefit in BSNL. CMD assured to look into the matter. It is understood that BSNL is submitting its feedback to DoT on 3rd PRC recommendations by tomorrow wherein BSNL is trying to provide 15% fitment benefit (highest fitment benefit) to BSNL executives on implementation of 3rd PRC. The HR Group of BSNL is actively involved in this process under the control of CGM(Legal), BSNL Corporate Office, New Delhi. AIBSNLEA is pursuing regularly at all the levels.

CS & President met GM(HR/Admn) on 20-02-2017 and requested him to expedite the Faculty Allowance case of Sri P K Mondal DE/NSCBTTC pending for quite some time.New file has been initiated.GM assured early solution.We also discussed about the posting of JTOs who are undergoing training at present,we requested to see that external plant should get manned for generation of revenue in the interest of CTD. CS also written a letter to GM(Fin) requesting that AOs who are on transfer list may be released after 31-03-2017 so that any difficulty in IT & and in field may not happen due to year ending.

We are very much thankful to DGM/NWO/S for his active cooperation in settling transfer/posting case of our members.

Status report on 3rd PRC:

GS met GM (SR) and discussed regarding the status of 3rd PRC recommendations with reference to BSNL. GM (SR) informed that after the presentation given by DoT to the Group of Secretaries meeting held on 02.02.2017 wherein DoT has been advised to submit  the financial  position of the PSUs under the control of DoT. Accordingly, DoT has asked the feedback / comments of BSNL by Monday in this regard which is being replied shortly.

It is understood that as per 3rd PRC interim report, if a PSU has 20 % liability of PBT on account of 3rd PRC implementation it may give 15% fitment, PSU having 30% liability of PBT on account of 3rd PRC implementation may give 10% fitment and PSU having 40% liability of PBT on account of 3rd PRC implementation may give 5% fitment benefit. At present BSNL's PBT is minus in %age.

In view of that we have pleaded 3rd PRC to take operational profit of a PSU instead of  PBT into consideration.

We thanked GM for their cooperation.

Meeting with Director (HR) :

GS, FS, AGS (HQ) and AGS (Finance) met with Director (HR) in the presence of GM (SR) and discussed regarding:

(i) Harassment & Victimization of AIBSNLEA Office Bearers: We expressed our serious concern against the harassment of AIBSNLEA members by the Office Bearers / Members of SNEA in some circles in day to day work. In the capacity of immediate superior executives, who are incidentally our members, are assigning work to their subordinate executives, who happen to be the office bearers / members of SNEA they are  threatening and making gheros of their immediate superior executive who is our member and harassing by making abusing words and false complaints. We quoted recently held some incidences in Punjab Circle, Karnataka Circle, Gujarat Circle etc. Director (HR) immediately directed GM (SR) to take the report from the concern Circle Heads and to take immediate action to ensure discipline in the organization.

We also informed Director (HR) that in some circles vindicating actions are being taken by the Management by the way of issuing show cause notice against participation in peaceful demonstrative actions on the call of United Forum even after calling off the said demonstrative action programs on 06.01.2017 after the cordial meeting with Director (HR). We requested to stop such type of vindictive action to prevail harmony in the interest of BSNL. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter.

(ii)  Problems being faced by the members of AIBSNLEA in completing the subscription deduction form: We informed that in the field units some immediate superior / counter signing officers on the format of subscription deduction are pressing our members to fill up the form of a particular association to whom they belongs. Hence, our members are being terrorized under the threat of spoiling their careers / APAR in case they do not fill up the form as per their direction. Hence, we requested to remove the column of counter sign from the format since executives are well educated and well known to the management. Director (HR) immediately directed GM (SR) to modify the said format immediately to avoid such incidences and to allow to prevail democracy in the organization. 

(iii) Extension of some facilities to AIBSNLEA for its smooth functioning: We requested for granting some facilities to AIBSNLEA for its smooth functioning in day to day working. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter.

(iv) Implementation of E2 & E3 standard pay scales to JTO & SDE equivalent executives: We requested for the implementation of E2 & E3 standard pay scales to JTO & SDE equivalent executives in BSNL by getting an early approval of DoT. Director(HR) mentioned that matter is pending in DoT wherein AST has already proposed to send the proposal of approving E1A & E2A pay scales in BSNL & E1 pay scale to future JTOs/JAOs. She assured that CMD will be discussing this matter with Secy(T) shortly so that issue is resolved before notification of 3 PRC report.

(v) Allowing option to exercise 10%quota JAOs: We requested to issue order in respect of JAOs recruited through 10% quota at par with JAOs-2010 batch of 40% quota. GM(FP) was present in the meeting and assured to process the case for settlement.

(vi) Settlement of the long pending HR issues: We requested for the settlement of the long pending HR issues which are already approved by the BSNL MC through the committee of HR group of DoT & BSNL.

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.

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.

The related approval in this regard may be obtained from her in the file.

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:

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.
