Meeting with Addl. Secretary (Telecom), DoT:

GS and President along with the GS and President of AIRBSNLEWA met Addl. Secretary (T), DoT and discussed regarding:

A Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL: We requested for implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL as per the BSNL Board’s decision which is already sent to DoT for approval and issuance of Presidential Directives. AST mentioned that the BSNL’s proposal on 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL is being processed. During the discussions, the AST was responsive.

 B Payment of Pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale: We requested to consider payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale. AST mentioned that the BSNL’s proposal in this regard was considered and decided that DoT can not recommend payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale to DoE in view of the fact the pension contribution paid by BSNL for their employees is on different substantive grade pay scales and thereafter the employee is being retired in higher scale. So initially the pension contribution was paid in lesser amount to DoT DoT as per the lower scale. We further pleaded that the 6th CPC in the year 2006 had recommended pension contribution to be taken on actual basic pay of the employee. In view of that, it should be considered on actual basic but AST was firm on his decision.

 C Revision of the Pension of BSNL Pensioners: We requested AST to take an early action for revision of the pension of the BSNL pensioners who are drawing Govt. Pension under Rule 37A. We explained that Sr. DDG (Estt), DoT is mentioning that the revision of pension of BSNL pensioners will be considered after the pay revision of BSNL serving employees on implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations otherwise, there will be a disparity in the pension of the BSNL pensioners who will retire later on. AST after giving patient hearing told that we will look into the mater for an early action in this regard. GS, AIRBSNLEWA gave a letter to AST in this regard which he marked immediately to the concerned section for taking an early action.

 D Additional increment case on post based proposition under EPP: AST categorically mentioned that the matter is sub-judice so he can not make any comment on this issue.

 E Restructuring of AD (OL) cadre in BSNL: We requested to give clearance to BSNL on restructuring of AD (OL) cadre. AST assured to look into.


Meeting with PGM(Pers) , BSNL CO on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy

GS, President, AGS (HQ), AGS (FIN ) and AGS (DR) met with PGM (Pers.) and discussed about  proposed Draft CPSU cadre hierarchy. PGM (Pers.) initiated the discussion by reiterating the MC direction that CPSU proposal is being discussed with associations to make policy more employee and organisation centric. We told that response submitted by AIBSNLEA contains para wise suggestions, by considering them Policy can be made beneficial for both employee and organisation.

We reiterated our stand that all pending CPCs should be completed and promotion orders should be issued before implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy and priority should be given to conduct CPCs first to fill up all the vacant post of Group- 'A' and Group-' B'. Pers. cell need to take legal opinion wherever required, to break the stalemate in promotions in various cadres as per DOP&T guidelines on SC/ST rosters implementation.

PGM (Pers.) assured to work out some way to complete the CPCs processes and issue promotion orders and simultaneously finalise the CPSU Hierarchy.

We strongly opposed the MT recruitment provision at STS level in the CPSU cadre hierarchy. PGM (Pers.) told that management trainee is need of the organisation. We mentioned that  AIBSNLEA will never accept MT at STS level. We categorically told that MT recruitment at STS level will block the career prospects of all the existing executives  at JTO / JAO and SDE / AO level and they will retire at AGM level only. If management feels that BSNL need market talent then recruit MT in Sales, Marketing, HR and  Legal etc. at JTO/JAO level only. Engineering and Finance vertical are already having executives at JTO / JAO equivalent to Management Trainee. Along with this, If management feels that there is requirement at policy making level, BSNL may recruit higher management professionals at GM level with suitable experience and probation.

We also opposed ignorance of length of service and seniority in proposed draft and increase of resend period for AGM grade from 7 years to 12 years. Residency period from SDE to AGM and equivalent cadre should be maximum 7 years only.

We suggested the benchmarks should be on basis of Khan Committee report and numeric based to avoid huge dropping.

We also suggested that implemention of date of CPSU Policy should be from the date of last CPC held in that cadre instead of 01.01.2017, otherwise it will not be beneficial to the  executives in the Cadre (s) having more than 20 years of service.

The executives already in E5 scales should be given the designation of Jt. DGM immediately as per Khan Committee report.

We suggested that before going to any final decision all cadre controlling authorities like Civil , Electrical , Arch, Finance, TF and CSS etc. should be consulted and taken care of their views / suggestions also.

We further suggested that Pers. cell may convene a joint meeting of all executive associations for more deliberation and making a consensus on CPSU policy which is more employee and organisation centric.

At last we requested PGM (Pers) that he should go through our view and suggestion with open mind to make CPSU Cadre hierarchy to become reality. He assured to apprise AIBSNLEA views to BSNL management committee for consideration.

AIBSNLEA will have a meeting with Addl. Secretary (T), DoT tomorrow at 14.30 Hrs and will have discussions with PGM (Pers.) on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy draft proposal submitted by AIBSNLEA tomorrow morning at 10.00 hrs.

Meeting with PGM (Pers.) to discuss the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal:

GS, President, AGS (HQ), AGS (Fin), and AGS (DR) had meeting with PGM (Pers.) on CPSU cadre hierarchy. The meeting was scheduled as per direction of the Management Committee of BSNL Board. GM (SR), Jt. GM (Pers) and DGM (Pers-II) were also present in the meeting.  AIBSNLEA submitted its detailed Para wise response to the draft policy approved by BSNL Management committee.

PGM (Pers) had apprised that purpose of the MC‘s direction to discuss with associations to make policy more employee and organization centric. He requested that AIBSNLEA should support the policy to break the stalemate in the promotions of executives in BSNL.

AIBSNLEA made it clear that we are never against the CPSU hierarchy rather we have been demanding it to implement in the true sense and as per Khan Committee recommendations.  We further clarified that our suggestions are to safe guard the interest of the entire executives and it will give value additions to it. In view of this Pers. Cell should carefully go through our views / suggestions with open mind without any prejudice. Then point by point discussion was held. 

While discussion, we strongly  opposed the MT recruitment, ignorance of  the weightage to seniority, reduction of sanctioned strength, increase in eligibility condition from of 7 to 12 years for the promotion of SDE/AO to DE /AGM/CAO, Time bound promotion in SG-JAG grade should be in E7 instead of E6 etc.

PGM (Pers) appreciated our concern in this regard and impress upon to consider MT Recruitment to full-fill the management requirement immediately but we categorically told that AIBSNLEA is firm on its stand and will not accept MT Recruitment at STS level which will block the career progression of executives. Today the meeting started at 15.00 hrs as per the schedule and continued till 18.00 hrs thereafter, PGM (Pers.) mentioned that he will study the submissions made by AIBSNLEA point by point and thereafter he will discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA again on 22nd and 23rd Nov, 2017.

BSNL Executive promotion Policy Amendment & Recruitment Rules, 2017

Pros and Cons

The pros and cons on implementation of the Draft Rectt./Promotion Rule,  proposing Time bound functional promotion upto AGM grade for all cadres / streams are as under:-.

1.2: The modified policy shall be implemented w.e.f. 01.01.2017:

Pros: The modified policy implementing w.e.f. 01.01.2017 will provide time bound functional promotion upto AGM level which will benefit the newly recruited executives, recruited after 2010.

Cons: The modified policy implementing w.e.f. 01.01.2017 will not give benefit to the senior executives in the cadre having more than 20 years of service which will cause frustration and discontentment among them. For example, one JTO recruited in the year 1995 and completed 21 years of service is still waiting his first functional promotion as a SDE and one JTO recruited in the year 2011 completed 5 years of service will get SDE promotion together.  No service weightage to the senior executive is ensured.    

1.3: On approval of the policy, all existing RR in the grade of SDE /equivalent will be treated as scrapped and MSRR 2009 will be modified to the extent that promotion of AGM/DE Grade in all the schedule-IA, IB, IC & ID shall be treated to be deleted. Remaining portion of MSRR shall be continued to be followed as per the existing provision. MT recruitment will continue as per the existing provision of Recruitment Rule of MT.

Pros: MT recruitment at STS level as per the existing provisions of recruitment rule of MT, It may help in filling up Top level SAG/HAG level post on fast track method through MTs of outside and inside quote.  Few of Group B level executives will also get a chance to become MT through this process.                                                

Cons: MT recruitment at STS level will block the career progression of Group B level executives as we have experienced in DOT setup through JTS OF ITS Grup A recruitment rules 1991. Where in one DR JTO of DOT used to retire as Adhoc DE after completing 37-38 years of service. The similar situation will develop in BSNL after the introduction of MT recruitment.                                  

1.4: Powers for relaxation/ modification/ amendment to these rules will vest with the Management committee of BSNL Board.

Pros: It will provide easy path to BSNL management to relax/modify/amendment to these rules with the approval of management committee of BSNL Board.

Cons: BSNL management, as its own or under the unforeseen pressures may any time relax/modify/amend these rules with the approval of BSNL MC which may be in the interest of executives or against. These rules are approved by the BSNL Board and cleared by DOT may not be allowed to BSNL management to make such provisions since the pension payment is being made by DOT.   

3.0: Authorized strength of the Service: The authorized strength of the executives in various cadre/stream shall be as per the provisional HR plan

Pros: As per Deloite recommendations the sanction posts of Group A and B level executives will be reduced the wage payment liability of BSNL through the proposed HR plan.                 

Cons: As per new HR plan based on Deloite recommendations the huge number of sanctioned posts of Group A and B will be reduced which will adversely affect the career progression of BSNL executives by way of stagnation due to non-availability of the posts. 

5.1: All the existing Executives up to AGM/DGM(Adhoc) shall continue to be considered  for financial up-gradation to the next higher scale upto E-6 scale on completion of 5 years of service from the date of placement in lower scale through conduction of CPC. The benchmarks considered for financial up-gradation shall be as per the prescribed provisions in the schedule. The new Benchmarks shall be applied to those executives whose financial up-gradations are due w.e.f. 01.01.2018.

Pros: The stringent benchmark will filtered the executives and the less number of executives will be promoted to the higher post to reduce to number.

Cons: The stringent benchmark will block the career prospect of majority executives thus the spirit of time bound promotion on functional basis to all executives will be defeated. Considering this, the benchmark proposed by Khan Committee was appropriate of functional promotions.

5.3 II: All the executives eligible for promotion for a vacancy year i.e. promotion under SCF, for which the result of the LDCE (other channel of promotion) has been issued and promotion order is pending, the promotion of executives of both the channel shall be considered deemed to have been promoted before 1.1.2017 and they shall be treated en-bloc senior to the executives promoted as per this Rule.

Pros: The promotion of executives of both the channel shall be considered deemed to have been promoted before 1.1.2017 and they shall be treated en-bloc senior to the executives promoted as per this Rule. It will depend upon the year to year vacancies.

Cons: The executives of LDCE quota appeared through a particular vacancy year will continue to claim their seniority along with the vacancies of SCF quota. It may invite litigations and derail the process.

12.0: The executive shall join the place of posting on promotion within 40 days of the issue of the order of promotion by BSNL CO. The period of 40 days may be extended in exceptional and deserving case, in the interest of service, where the Administrative requirement so demands with the approval of appointing authority. In case the Executives who are granted functional promotion but fails to join the promoted grade within the time or decline promotion, then Management reserves the right to forfeit his promotion and executive shall not be considered for functional promotion or financial up-gradation to higher scale for next one Year or next CPC whichever is later, from the date of deemed refusal (after 40 days) or from date of application of refusal.

Pros and Cons: If on promotion outside circle one is forced to refuse due to medical/ family issues, he will stagnate in his own pay scale as there is no financial upgradation. This type of situation should be relaxed and genuinely should be weighted.

16.0: New designations for Executives: In the Policy new Designation has been incorporated and shall hereafter be followed at all levels at H.Q./Circle/SSA etc.

Pros and ConsKhan committee has no where suggested Sr. SDE as functional promotion and tightening the norms by deciding even one  "Average" as disqualification in promotion for JTO, SDE, Sr. SDE, DE cadres i.e. for the span of 20 years. We strongly submits that there is no need to alive the Sr. SDE cadre. By this inclusion the Executives will be derailed from their justified promotions and will be bound to remain in the same pay scale for 10 years, which is the violation of EPP. We strongly oppose such inclusion.
