 Update on the matter of JTO to SDE promotion in Hon'ble High Court  of Kerala:

The OP (CAT) No. 45/2015 in the matter of JTO to SDE promotion in the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala came for hearing today in the court number 6-B Divisional Bench. Every advocate was ready but with ulterior motive, this time also, the petitioners advocate played  gimmicks and reported sick. This is perhaps the last weapon of the petitioner. Hon'ble Court very much convinced the genuineness of the case and unreasonable stay affecting 6.5K executives' promotions and decided to post  the hearing to next Thursday i.e. 23.07.2015.


CPC from JTO to SDE (T): GM (Pers.) mentioned that again the court case in the Hon’ble High Court Kerala is postponed to 23rd July 2015 since applicants’ advocate took the adjournment on his sickness ground.

AIBSNLEA has already submitted the members list in this regard. GM (Estt) assured an early action in this regard.

The OP  when came for hearing in the Division Bench of Hon'ble High Court  last  time on 10-7-2015, senior advocate from BSNL along with advocates from all other respondent sides appeared for argument. Shri Benny.M.John (High Court Advocate) appeared for AIBSNLEA being the impleading respondent in this case at High Court. All the advocates from the respondent side including AIBSNLEA were ready for argument, but the appellant's counsel requested for some more time for personal reasons. The Court then adjourned the case and posted for final hearing on 20th July 2015. The advocate appearing for AIBSNLEA is well appraised of the various aspects of this matter. He was asked to highlight the prevailing stalemate causing undue delay in allowing legitimate promotion of about 6600 JTOs. 

Instructions were given to him to bring the urgency and gravity of the matter to the kind notice of the Hon. High Court.  The case is under constant pursuit of our advocate at High Court. (Counsel for AIBSNLEA in High Court in the above OP (CAT):- Adv. Benny.M.John, MA, LLB, Phone No.09447397077,    or . AIBSNLEA persuaded with BSNL Management to file an MA for early hearing in the Hon'ble High Court Kerala, accordingly the MA has been filed by BSNL's Advocate.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 


Update on meeting with CMD BSNL in response to our agitation notice/demands: As per the assurance given by CMD, BSNL in response to the notice for the organizational program, meeting is held in the chamber of CMD BSNL and in the presence of Director (HR) on dated 13.07.2015 from 1500 hrs to 16:30 hrs. GS AIBSNLEA, FS AIBSNLEA, GS AIGETOA, AGS AIGETOA and one representative of AIGETOA BSNL CO Sh Vivek Kumar Singh participated in the meeting. Meeting lasted for about 1.5 hrs.
While initiating discussion CMD mentioned that mainly he has convened this meeting to discuss and understand the pending HR issues of our demands that's why he had called Director (HR) only. At the outset CMD had discussed regarding viability of BSNL and specifically about night calling and All India Roaming free scheme recently launched by BSNL and appealed to united forum to grab this opportunity to increase the customer base and revenue for BSNL for which forum has assured full cooperation and effort in field.
Almost all the issues were discussed in brief and received very positive response from CMD and Director (HR) both. CMD BSNL  after listening the brief of the various issues directed to Director (HR) to have detail discussion on all the issues for time bound resolution.  Director (HR) has advised to discuss only four issues of our demands in each meeting for resolution. The next meeting will be held with Director (HR) involving concern GMs on 16th July 2015 at 12:00 hrs and further meetings wil
l continue till the discussion/resolution of all the issues mentioned in the agitation notice. The detail of the today's discussion will be uploaded shortly.


We understand that our all the HR issues are on right track and definitely be resolved in due time. As our CMD and Director (HR) are showing full concern with our legitimate HR issues, we assured him to work overtime to grab the customers and revenue for the revival of BSNL. Recently our CMD has taken some bold decisions of free night calling and All India free roaming due to which customer perception has changed positively towards BSNL which is required to be en-cashed by giving wide publicity through organizing Melas, media publicity, providing immediate NTCs on demand, removal of faults within three hours, increasing up time of BTSs, monitoring of franchisees outlets, improving customer service centers, immediate resolution of billing and other complaints etc. To ensure successful implementation of above all the Circles/District branches of Forum of BSNL unions/associations must conduct joint meetings and to meet respective Circle/SSA heads for providing adequate resources/help.     



       JTO to SDE promotion case at Hon Ernakulam High Court: After preliminary hearing, Hon Court posted the matter to 20.07.2015 for final hearing and disposal. Our lawyer and BSNL pleaded for vacation of stay or disposal of the case as there is no merit in the case. 4 or 5 officers are opposing the promotion of thousands of JTOs, our lawyer pointed out. The applicants lawyer opposed it on the plea that they are questioning the policy and hence matter has to be heard in detail. According to the convenience of all parties, the matter posted to 20.07.2015 for final hearing and disposal.

!!!!!!!  Organizational Action programs deferred for six months  !!!!!!!

Organizational Action programs deferred for six months: Three days nationwide hunger fast called by the united forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA was observed successfully all over India on first day. Executives from the nook and corner of the country participated actively and shown overwhelming support to make the programs a grand success.

Realizing the gravity and strength of the agitation, four rounds of talks were held with Senior GM (SR), GM (Pers), Director (HR) and CMD BSNL with the representatives of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA. Considering our demands and acknowledging the genuineness of the issues raised and the subsequent resentment and unrest amongst the executives, BSNL management informed us that they have deferred the internal and external MT exam for six months. We insisted that since the discussion on CPSU hierarchy is going on in the committee headed by ED (NB), any discussion on the requirement of any fast track mechanism within internal candidates should be held thereafter and MT in any form is not acceptable to us. We also pleaded with management to inform the timeline for resolution and progress on other pending HR issues discussed with Director (HR). Director (HR) appreciated our concern and directed Senior GM (SR) to issue a letter in line with the discussions.

Thereafter, CMD BSNL assured that he has been personally monitoring the developments and he is aware of the commitment given by HR wing. He further reaffirmed his commitment for resolution of the NO MT issue raised by the forum and resolution of other HR issues in a time bound manner. He also assured us that an agenda meeting with United Forum shall be held on Monday, the 13th July 2015 for his review of the HR issues. CMD BSNL emphasized on the need for exercising restraint and patience in view of the formalities associated with the matter. He also asked us to concentrate on the viability of the BSNL and making the recently launched schemes popular i.e. free night calling and free roaming and to provide quality services to the customers. We assured our fullest cooperation in his endeavor to turn around BSNL and to achieve its pristine glory.

Com GS, President AIBSNEA and President, AGS AIGETOA attended all the meetings with the management and also addressed the meeting during hunger fast at BSNL CO, New Delhi.

In response to the positive gesture shown by the BSNL management particularly CMD BSNL, forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA has decided to defer the ongoing agitation program for six months. Though, some break through has been achieved but final outcome is awaited. We sincerely hope that management will honor its commitment for implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy and resolution of pending HR issues in a time bound manner failing which we all should keep ourselves ready for resuming the deferred agitation program. At this juncture, we request all the members of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA and other executives who supported the program, to resume their duties immediately and to concentrate for the growth of BSNL. We extend our sincere gratitude and heartfelt thanks to all the office bearers, esteemed members and well-wishers for their overwhelming support to the agitation program.
