 Status of the Court case in JTO to SDE promotion in Hon'ble High Court Kerala at Ernakulam:The  information  published by SNEA(I) in their CHQ website  on 25th and 26th June, 2015 regarding  JTO to SDE promotion case  pending in the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala,  is wrong  and misleading. SNEA(I) claims that they have filed an MA along with BSNL for urgent hearing. This is not true. In this matter theSNEA(I) is not a party at all in the Hon'ble CAT as well in the appeal pending with Hon'ble HC.  Only AIBSNLEA  impleaded as  rep. No.16  in the OA filed by some of the JTOs in CAT Ernakulam.  No other association was a party in it. As they are not a party in it,   how can  they say that they ( SNEA(I) ) filed an  MA for early posting in HC?

AIBSNLEA got impleaded in this case in CAT,  only to protect the genuine and  legitimate interests of its members. We do not know why the other association  did not became a  party in it with  their own identity. But they pretend otherwise and publish false statements to misguide general members.

It is stated by the SNEA(I) that the "Hon'ble court directed to complete the service to AIBSNLEA and then list the case". This itself implies that, notice has not so far been served to AIBSNLEA in this matter. There is no case of not accepting the notice by respondent No.16 (AIBSNLEA). On the other hand,  there is a case of not serving the notice by the authority concerned  which is actually a matter beyond the control of the respondent. However, AIBSNLEA filed a fresh Vakalthnama and entrusted the matter with a competent advocate in the High Court for taking notice and proceeding further in this matter, without waiting for a formal notice service. Our general members may please realize that the other association is simply trying  to fish out of troubled water.

This unjust write-up of SNEA(I) mislead the JTOs and is nothing but outcome of their frustration in the ongoing situations and to divert the attention of executives.

AIBSNLEA in true sense is safeguarding the interest of entire BSNL executives community that is why immediately AIBSNLEA got impleaded in Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam in this case whereas SNEA(I) did not bothered to impleade in the case.  AIBSNLEA will ensure early hearing of the case to break the stalemate in JTO to SDE promotion.


On 24-06-2015 ACS's of AIBSNLEA alongwith CS & other leaders of AIGETOA met CGM/CTD and expressed our resentment against BSNL CO's decision to go with MT Recruitment process.We handed over signature of executives of CTD against this process.We also explained that we are being compelled to take resort to TU action against such illogical & sinister move of the management.We requested him to convey our sentiment to the BSNL HQ.


United Forum of BSNL Executives' Associations (AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA)  serves a notice for resuming the deferred organizational actions to protest against the arbitrary recruitment of Management Trainee and non-settlement of long pending HR issues in BSNL. <<<Click here for the Notice>>>>

As per the decision of the competent authority, a committee has been formed to discuss the issue of recruitment of Management Trainee (Telecom Operation/Telecom Finance) from Internal and External candidates in BSNL. <<<Click here for letter>>>>The committee meeting was held today at 15.00 Hrs. GS AIBSNLEA, President AIGETOA, GS SNEA (I) and AGS AIBSNLOA attended the meeting.


GM (Pers) initiated the meeting and briefed the requirement of MT Recruitment in BSNL as per BSNL Board decision and explained the efforts to settle the pending HR issues of the Executives. He invited the opinion/ comments of the representatives of the Executives’ Associations. Three Executive Associations (AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AIBSNLOA) unanimously demanded for immediate withdrawal of MT Recruitment notification and impressed upon to finalize the CPSU cadre hierarchy. However, one Association (SNEA (I)) was of the view that MT Recruitment process should not be stopped on the pretext that if they wait till  finalization of the CPSU cadre hierarchy  then their members will cross the age of 50 years and they will not be eligible to appear in the MT Recruitment Examination. All the Executive Associations also demanded to fill up the vacant SDEs/DEs/DGMs equivalent posts immediately in a time bound manner. GM (Pers) after hearing the views mentioned that he will like to study the CPSU cadre hierarchy related material and will convene next meeting of the committee during the coming week.


AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA categorically told that holding of committee meeting will be fruitful only when the MT Recruitment notification is withdrawn immediately otherwise the discussions will be of no use, merely a wastage of time and we cannot give a long rope to the Management on this issue. Hence, we will be forced to resume the deferred agitation program immediately.


GS, FS, AGS (HQ) and President AIGETOA met CMD, BSNL and Director (HR), BSNL and further requested to withdraw the ongoing MT Recruitment process immediately and for the settlement of pending HR issues. CMD, BSNL and Director (HR) mentioned that let the committee to submit its report thereafter final decision will be taken in this regard. We further explained that GM (Pers) is explaining that he has a mandate to discuss the matter in view of the Board directions communicated by CMD BSNL and seems to continue with the MT Recruitment process. Hence, we are forced to resume the deferred agitation program immediately.


GS discussed with CMD, BSNL regarding the outcome of the BSNL Board Meeting on yesterday on the approval of HR issues cleared by MC on withdrawal of MT recruitment. CMD informed that some HR issues cleared by MC came for discussion in BSNL Board wherein Board prefers that first all the HR issues should be discussed in remuneration committee in BSNL Board thereafter these issues should be put up to BSNL Board for approval. Hence, after the clearance of remuneration committee, all the HR issues will be put up to BSNL  Board for approval.

Regarding MT recruitment withdrawal, CMD informed that matter was discussed in the Board Meeting & the concern of the executives was appraised to the Board and after some informal discussions, Board authorized CMD BSNL to re-look into the matter. He advised us to discuss the matter in person on Monday / Tuesday.


GS discussed with Company Secretary & Sr. GM (Legal), BSNL Corporate Office regarding BSNL Board Meeting today. Company Secretary & Sr. GM (Legal) appraised that  only one of the HR  issues agenda came for discussion in BSNL Board Meeting today. Only the discussion took place in meeting are on technical & procurement items.  The next BSNL Board meeting will be held in the 2nd or 3rd Week of July, 2015.

b. Guide lines for forwarduing transfer requests on completion of tenure posting other wise issued by Pers Cell on 04.06.2015: We expressed our serious concern against the guidelines wherein nothing is mentioned regarding consideration of tenure transfer cases of executives serving in hard tenure circles because quarterly consideration will cause delay and frustration amongst these executives and in case the request transfer applications are not forwarded by SSA/Circles to the BSNL CO the Associations will only be raising the issues which has to be directly considered by Pers. Cell. GM (Pers ) appreciated our concern and assured that while issuing tenure transfer orders all the eligible executives for transfer in that quarter will be considered and orders will be issued in advance so that on completion the tenure they may immediately be relieved. Also assured that circles have to forward the request transfer application to BSNL Corporate Office in all the cases with any comment but they can not with held the requests.

Viewers are aware about the RTI application made by our veteran leader com Amit kumar Gupta on 60:40 pension sharing issue which revealed the cabinet approval of this 60:40 pension sharing with BSNL (Uploaded in this site on 10-02-15). Further Com Gupta made a 2nd RTI asking several questions and copies of the note sheets of the relevant file. DOT has replied most of the questions and also supplied 10 pages of note sheets of the relevant file. All the documents are being uploaded now for information of everyone. It is now revealed from the note sheets, that while processing the cabinet memo dated 29-12-2010, mention of the DOT letter dated 5-1-2009 was there including the brief content that if BSNL is unable to pay then Govt. will still pay the pension, in the draft cabinet note (page 60/N) which was subsequently removed from the final draft cabinet note (page 79/N). The reason of the removal is still unknown as DOT has not furnished the in between note sheets from 63/N to 76/N although they are also relevant to the RTI question no 7.


As understood presently DOT is granting only a relaxation on 60:40 pension sharing with BSNL, in the present cabinet note under process for 78.2% IDA fixation for pensioners, and not removing the clause permanently. However we have to be careful and wait for the final order on 78.2%. Further DOT has admitted that they have not consulted BSNL while processing the cabinet Memo dated 29-12-2010.
