A Report on the GB meeting on Election campaign of UF of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA at Telephone Bhavan Kolkata on 28.11.2016
A Joint General Body meeting of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA was held at Telephone Bhawan Kolkata Telephones District at 2.00 pm on 28-11-2016 with huge gathering in a grand manner. Around 750 executives attended. The meeting was presided over by Sri Tridip Chakraborty, President, AIBSNLEA/CTD.
CS WB AIBSNLEA Comrade B K Bhattacharjee, President, Comrade Swapan Bose, ACS Com Anirudhha Bose, Adv. CHQ Comrade Basudev Chakraborty, CS CTD AIGETOA Comrade Saikat Das, President Comrade Amit Das, AGS Comrade Deepak Sahoo and veteran leader Comrade Amit Gupta graced the occasion by their precious presence on the dais.
All the dignitaries on the dais were felicitated with flower bouquet in the very beginning. Comrade Prahlad Rai inaugurated the manifesto of UF/CTD on the stage.
Comrade Saikat Das, Com Deepak Sahoo addressed the gathering by expressing their full support to AIBSNLEA in the forthcoming EMV on 07-12-2016. They reiterated that on AIBSNLEA can fulfill and achieve the demands of BSNL recruited executives.
Comrade Prasun kr. Mukhopadhyay, CS CTD & OS (East) CHQ AIBSNLEA delivered his speech. In his short deliberation he discussed about the role of our association and the joint movement with AIGETOA. This is first time the membership verification of BSNL executive to be held on 7thDecember, 2016. Our election manifesto has been prepared and issued today in this historic meeting in Kolkata. He appealed all the members to cast their valuable vote in favour of our beloved association at Serial No. 1 in the ballot paper and become No. 1 executive association on 7thDecember 2016 to fight for scrapping of MTRR, DGM recruitment, replacement of the pay scale of E-1A to E-2, E-2A to E-3 & subsequent up gradation up to E-4 to E-7, implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy, 30 % superannuation benefit to BR executive. He questioned about the performance of our sister association we have witnessed in the past. Their only achievement is nothing but transfer & posting of their members, pro-management activities like favouring MTRR, DGM recruitment etc. So defeat them to this association in this verification and save BSNL, save the interest of BSNL executive. Because we have achieved 5 increment of JAO 2010 batch, we are fighting for JAO 2013 batch. Above all, we are fighting for 3Ps. Pay, Promotion and Pension. We have settled pension of 37a of BSNL pensioner. If the AIBSNLEA becomes No.1 executive Association, the 3rd PRC and other cadre based issues to be settled. AIBSNLEA will protect the right of all the executive.
Comrade Ravi Shil Verma, GS AIGETOA in his address explained needs and effects of MOU between the two associations of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA. He thanked veteran leader of AIBSNLEA Comrade Amit Gupta for his important role with the formation of MOU in the year 2013. He stressed the needs of struggle and fight jointly with BSNL management for all the issues of our executive irrespective of all executive cadres. He stated that nearly 14,000 votes of AIGETOA will be in favour of AIBSNLEA along with 16,000 votes of AIBSNLEA resulting which we must win in this verification. There is no such force who will counter these two associations. He stated that other sister association is trying to keep away from AIBSNLEA. According to him other association has a desire to bring the verification from management so that they can stop scrapping of MTRR and DGM recruitment, E-2 E-3 pay scale, stay 10 years in the same pay scale of E-3. But now they are afraid that their dream will not be possible if AIGETOA join hands with AIBSNLEA. The role of other sister association is always against future prospect of young executive. Our demand is that there should be no lateral recruitment beyond JTO/JAO. After pay and promotion then they want to block further in the issue of 30 % superannuation benefit to the BR executives. If any achievement comes through hard fought battle of these two associations, they have shared of this as achievement of their own and hence they claimed that all credits to them. Finally he appealed all the executives to cast their vote in favour of AIBSNLEA on 7th December 2016 in Sl . No.1
Our beloved GS Comrade Prahlad Rrai of AIBSNLEA during his elaborate deliberation discussed all the issues of BSNL executive. He shared his experience of his long leadership for the struggles in past as well as in present. We have started our campaign for the last 2 months all over the country to all the members for their overwhelming support to be No. 1 executive association in the forthcoming membership verification of BSNL executive. AIBSNLEA consisting of 10 executive association of BSNL Engg. AFSOA, Civil, Electrical, Architecture, PA/PS, Secretariat, AD(OL). He apprised that at the time of formation of BSNL and after exercise of our absorption BSNL management assured us that executive promotion policy shall implemented in BSNL. But after a lot of struggles and negative approach with the then ITS officers it was achieved in 18-01-2007. All our legitimate issues are not settled for 6-7 years. But EPP is not achieved as per our aspiration. Our demand is that there will be scope of promotion of absorbed Group “B” executive upto the level of DGM after that according to the vacancy. ITS Gr. A absorption is pending till date. 50 % post of group “A” should be filled up from promotee officers. Earlier one JTO got only one promotion during his service and retired from that post. Whereas, one ADET of JTS recruitment was having 7 promotions up to the level of Member of Telecom Commission. After 2008, MTRR came again in 2016. We are opposing MTRR and DGM recruitment. After the verification, management is to sit with the majority executive association on this issue. Our sister association is in favour of the above. We are against any lateral entry above the rank of JTO and JAO. 3rd PRC is coming, before that our pay scale should be finalized this is our demand. This is a heart burnt issue of our sister association when the BR executives will reach SDE to DE scale after completion of 15 years of service so they are trying to remain in the E-3 scale for the 10 years to be a hindrance to our young executives. Our demand is that E1A to be replaced by E-2 and E2A to be replaced by E-3 and subsequently E-3 to E-4, E-5 to E-6, E-6 to E-7 before 3rd PRC. He apprised us that he as Circle Secretary of JETA in Rajasthan circle and Shri Amit Gupta Circle Secretary of WB Circle were fighting for pay scale of JTO of Rs. 1640-2900 and achieved. Now our sister association claimed that they have achieved it. Under rule 37-A our pension is now secured but for our BR executives, their 30% superannuation is not settled yet. Before the 3rd PRC 30 % superannuation is to be settled and this should be given effect from 1-1-2007. 2005, 2010 batch pay anomaly case has been settled. 2007 batch JTOs should be given pay scale of Rs. 22,280/- and their pay scale should be revised. E-1+5 increments to JAO 2013, PA cadre, SDERR, MT Quota diversion to CAO waiting for board approval. All other HR issues lying with BSNL management should be settled before December, 2016. SDE LDCE result postings will be issued after maintaining SC/ST roster. 2000 SDE to DE and 800 AO to CAO DPC is under process. 2700 JTO to SDE, JAO to AO, SDE to EE Civil/Electrical is under process. PPS post has been created. AD (OL) restructuring approval is pending in DoT. 25% Sr. Hindi Translator to be upgraded to JTO scale. GSM with GPRS data facility, mobile handset and 525 plan have been provided. Now their further improvement is under active consideration. In the 3rd PRC BSNL should be considered as a Schedule “A” company. BSNL is the only telecom sector to provide service in remote area of Uttaranchal, Jammu & Kashmir. BSNL has earned operating profit for the last consecutive financial years. And last year, it was Rs. 3800 crores. So pay should be revised in 3rd PRC. It should be extended BSNL pensioner also. This is our responsibility and we have made our presentation to PRC. JAO 2016 batch have got their posting and they are eligible for voting power. Against the wrong policies of BSNL and calling of any agitational programme called by forum, AIBSNLEA always in the forefront. VRS we have opposed it. 65% market share of BSNL broadband service is at present. Rural deficit charges given to BSNL, pension contribution should be on the actual basic pay instead of maximum of pay scale. Subsidiary Tower Company we opposed it. There is a strike on 15th December 2016 on this issue. 54% loss of BSNL has been reduced during the last 4 years. Revenue of BSNL is increasing gradually last year it was Rs. 31,000 Crores. Now we are not a sick company. In the membership verification we must finish at No. 1.
Lastly he appealed all the executives of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA to cast their vote in favour of AIBSNLEA and get the AIBSNLEA No.1 to protect the interest of all the executives. Kolkata is ideal of trade union movement. Again he appealed all the executives to ensure their votes on 7th of December in favor of AIBSNLEA in Sl. No.1
The meeting ended with slogan shouting & expressing our faith in UF and win in the EMV.
On 28-11-2016 GS met CGM/CTD alongwith CS,President & AIGETOA leader after GB.They discussed about modalities of EMV in CTD & requested CGM to include newly promoted JAOs of CTD in the Voter list as per BSNL CO order.CGM informed that thair names will be included and they can cast their vote exactly according to the provisions contained in BSNL CO letter.
A malicious campaign is being spread by that United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA is insisting on cascading effect.
In this regard, it is informed to all and sundry that United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA has insisted on replacement of non standard intermediate pay scales and merging of non-functional SR SDE scale with SDE scale. This would have enabled the smooth resolution of the whole issue as none of the groups would have been at loss.
All we have opposed is keeping an executive in E3 scales for 10 years.
We have given two suggestions one was for merger of scale...and second was to replace two initial scales of E1A and E2A with E2 and E3 and give promotions as per EPP as and when due...This would have enabled all Executives getting promotions upto E7 Scale and resolution of the crucial pay issue for our young executives. This proposal would have benefited the youngsters as the Intermediate Pay Scales would have been replaced and would have also benefited in their career as they would have got E4 Scale after 10 years of service. The management was also quite supportive of the proposal, however our sister association categorically stated that this proposal is not acceptable to them. They were not even agreeable to changing the scales without disturbing EPP and dealing the anomalies later on as has been done in case of other anomalies related to 2nd PRC.
The only thing that was acceptable to them was replacement of scales with changes in EPP by keeping an executive in E3 scales for 10 years or replaces all scales outrightly...
CMD BSNL after sensing no breakthrough, directed Establishment Cell to process replacing all scales as he was also not convinced with idea of keeping an executive in a single scale for 10 years.
Friends those singing the tunes of calling themselves as messiahs of Youngsters should reply what heartburn they would have faced if our youngsters would have got E4 in 10 years...what loss they would have faced if the five promotions would have been given up to E7.
We have always worked with utmost sincerity on the issues. We never have heart burn if our youngsters are getting any benefit. It is a natural process that those coming late in department always benefit and if anybody is having heart burn for that then it is a serious question mark on working of the Association...
We request all the executives to not to be misguided by such malice campaigns..we request all to analyse the facts, action of the association, approach on the issues..and then decide...We still wonder who went to DoT and informed AST that E1A and E2A is an Scale decided by cabinet as a part of negotiated settlement and only cabinet can lower the scales..we are very much intrigued who went to AST and told him that replacing initial two scales will result into legal consequences...we still fail to understand that two stalwarts of the saviour association go to DoT and same day proposal is returned but the same gets mention on their website as positive development..after all what was cooking.. ... we leave it for the people to analyse and decide who is doing what...what is the fact...what is hidden..
For those who are singing the tunes of themselves being the saviours of youngsters and spreading this mischievous campaign..we would like to know what is their stand on the most importance issues of PPP...I.e. Pay Promotion and Pension...
Their stand on the issues itself tells how much they care about the executives..how much they care about the youngsters :
1. They want MT and DGMs from outside...They ask BSNL for infusion of fresh blood...as if the blood of youngsters present in BSNL is not fresh...They say MT RR need not be scrapped and is necessary for BSNL..
2. They say they are happy with one promotion...They say they are happy with limit of Posts on AGM level...They say they are happy with promotions upto Sr SDE...They feel OK with Parachute Management in the middle..
3. They say that Executive should stay in E3 scales for 10 years as not doing same may result into heartburn if SDE and Sr SDE scales are merged, juniors may get promoted to E4 after ten years of service..They say asking for promotions upto E7 level is illogical ...They say E7 is forte of some classified groups and can not be extended to ordinary executives of BSNL...for them Pay Loss is a non issue...
4. They are happy with 6% contribution in Superannuation Fund for DRs...They call demand of 12 percent as illogical and unrealistic demand...They say DRs will already have crores and crores of Rupees in their fund from EPF..
These are some of the excerpts from their stand on the most important issues of Executives I.e. PPP.......Pay Promotion and Pension..which is sufficient to explain what they have in store for executives..
Friends...we have always believed on doing work on ground..we have always believed in that actions speaks louder then the words...we work for the whole fraternity..we take care that none of the executives are at loss.
Approach of United Forum of AIBSNLA and AIGETOA on 3Ps-
1. No lateral recruitment above JTO/JAO/Equivalent ... We consider blood of youngsters from BSNL as fresh and competent enough to run BSNL.. We believe that none other than themselves should be in the forefront of the company ..we believe none other than the BSNL executives should occupy the top management posts of BSNL...NO MT..NO DGM is our demand..we want scrapping of MT RRs in totality..
2. We believe in promotions upto AGM level without any limit on posts..We believe that there should be a contemporary CPSU hierarchy policy in place...We want that each executive who joins BSNL should have a well defined path to reach the level of CMD...we believe that E7 ..E8...E9 is for an ordinary BSNL executive also and it does not belong to particular class...we support Khan Committee report...
3. We ask for replacement of E1A and E2A scales with E2 and E3 and we say that an executive should not be forced to remain in E3 scales for 10 years...We don,t have heartburn when our young executives get E4 five years earlier then us...We ask for merging Sr SDE and SDE scales..We consider Pay Loss as an important issue and we are working on that..we are trying for constitution of a committee in similar lines as being done in the case of departmental JAOs of 2010 batch...We are fighting for treating Departmental TTAs who were selected as JTOs in DR a quota as promotion..and accordingly for their pay fixation considering their appointment as Promotion..we would like to highlight that cascading is a non issue for us ..
4. We don't consider 12 percent contribution as unrealistic ... we consider 12 percent fully justified and as rightful due for all BSNL recruits...We consider implementation date for Superannuation fund as the date on which employee was recruited in BSNL right from the date 01.10.2000..we consider as implementation of Death Relief Scheme as the most important requirement..
5. Filling up of the vacant Gr. “B”, STS & JAG level posts on regular basis till the time CPSE cadre hierarchy comes into existence..
6. Notional pay fixation for JTOs/SDEs (C/E/Arch/TF) Engg Wings & PA cadre, E1+5 increments to JAOs of 2013 & 2015 Batches/JTOs SRD & PA Cadre..
7. Modification in SDE RR..
8. Time Bound Promotions to DGMs (Promoted from Gr. B cadres) from E-5 to E-6 grade..
We have highlighted the stand of the so called saviour association on some most important issues vis-a-vis our stand. We request the whole BSNL executive Fraternity to think, introspect and decide..We request executive to Vote for NO MT recruitment..We request to Vote for No DGM recruitment..We request to Vote for merging of Sr SDE and SDE scales and not placing an executive in E3 scales for 10 years..We request to Vote for 30 Percent Superannuation Contribution..we request to vote for 12 Percent Superannuation contribution as realistic contribution..
Long Live United Forum..Long Live AIBSNLEA ..Long Live AIGETOA .
AIBSNLEA efforts to safeguard the interest of BSNL Executives absorbed or BSNL recruited.
AIBSNLEA has tried to get resolve the contentious HR issues during the last 10-11 years wherein the EPP was notified on 18.1.2007 with the great and sincere efforts of AIBSNLEA, because the then BSNL management with a indifferent attitude was not implementing the assured career progression to executives even after completion of 6-7 years after the formation of BSNL. With the untiring efforts of AIBSNLEA the then Secy (T) Dr. J.S.Sarma interfered in the matter and high level committee headed by Sh. S.Bhave, Addl.Secy (T) was constituted. AIBSNLEA provided the necessary feed back to the committee in favor of EPP and accordingly Sh. Bhave committee submitted its report which was finally discussed with AIBSNLEA in the formal meeting with the then Secy (T) Sh. D.S.Mathur on 10.1.2007 and thereafter with the approval of the BSNL Board this EPP was notified on 18.1.2007. AIBSNLEA brought the kind intervention of then Secy (T) Dr. J.S.Sarma and perks were granted to all executives w.e.f 1.1.2005. GSM telephone connection with STD facility handset and GPRS DATA service were provided with the efforts of AIBSNLEA. All the STS vacant posts of DEs/AOs/EEs(C/Ele/Arch/TF) were not being filled up till 2006. This issue was brought to the notice of Secy (T) Dr. J.S.Sarma and with his kind intervention the direction was given to CMD BSNL, Dir (HR) to fill up 2375 DEs posts and all the vacant STS level posts of Accounts, (Civil/Elect/Arch/TF) Engg wings where the absorption of Group A officers was completed. With our continuous persuasion first time after the formation of BSNL 2375 DEs,361 CAOs and about 300 EEs(C/E/Arch/TF) promotion orders were issued on adhoc basis in the year 2006.
AIBSNLEA succeeded in getting notified BSNL MSRR-2009and the detailed discussions with BSNL Management and after BSNL MSRR notification the regularization of Adhoc STS (DEs,CAOs, EEs took place. As soon as DEs/CAOs/EEs were regularly promoted. AIBSNLEA tried for DGM promotions and first time in the year 2009, DGMs Engg, DGM(Fin) and SE (C/E/Arch/TF) were promoted on Adhoc basis. On completion of 4 years of regular STS service, AIBSNLEA succeeded in getting regular promotion order of DGMs. It was a historical achievement to have regular DGMs promoted from Gr. B level executives.
AIBSNLEA also succeeded in getting implemented 2nd PRC report in BSNL with 30% fitment benefit being a schedule A and profit making PSU. AIBSNLEA efforts only got released presidential directives on 27th Feb 2009 from DOT. The DOT effort to grant 20% fitment benefit was strongly opposed by AIBSNLEA. E-1+5 advance increments benefit could be achieved by AIBSNLEA through Sh. K.C.G.K Pillai committee and now the efforts are being made to get the same benefit to JAO-2013, 2015 batches, JTO (SRD) and PA cadre.
48 PPS Posts have been created with all the CGMs in field units and 5 Sr. PPS posts in BSNL C.O. Restructuring of AD (OL) cadre proposal got approved from BSNL MC and now pending for approval of DOT.
With the struggle of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA, BSNL has approved in its MC for replacement of E-1A by E2, E2-A by E3 of JTO and SDE equivalent executives in BSNL which is pending in DOT for clearance .To avoid stagnation in E3 grade for 10 years, BSNL has proposed to upgrade subsequent pay scales. But the DOT administration is interested to lower the pay scales E1-A by E-1 and E2 A by E2 scales which cannot be tolerated. Hence we have to keep ready for a strong and decisive struggle in BSNL to achieve E2 and E-3 IDA pay scales for JTO and SDE equivalent executives. AIBSNLEA is committed to achieve standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTO and SDE equivalent executives in BSNL.
AIBSNLEA efforts yielded result in getting set-up Khan committee headed by the then ED (NB) Sh. M.A.Khan. The Committee report on CPSU cadre hierarchy is pending in Pers. cell of BSNL C.O. for consideration but the same is being delayed for implementation on the pretext of MT recruitment. AIBSNLEA is strongly opposing MT recruitment above JTO/JAO level also demanding DGM RR scrapping. AIBSNLEA strongly feels that BSNL is having young and talented executives available having B Tech/M tech MBA, ICWA and CA qualifications and they should reach to the rank of GM/CGMs and will be eligible for BSNL Board of Directors/CMD interviews due to age profile. Hence, AIBSNLEA will never allow recruitment of MT/DGMs above JTO/JAO level.
AIBSNLEA demands 12% contribution from BSNL towards 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees w.ef. 01.01.2007. BSNL absorbed employees are covered with pension Rule 37A. 60-40 provision secretly introduced by Govt. has now been withdrawn with the AIBSNLEA untiring efforts. 78.2% IDA pay fixation benefit has been granted to BSNL employees and BSNL pensioners. Stepping up of pay of seniors w.r.t their juniors under EPP . The manner AIBSNLEA in concern for the settlement of the HR issues, in the similar manner AIBSNLEA in concern towards viability of BSNL also. Hence as and when an agitation call is given by the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations the AIBSNLEA is always at the forefront to protest against the wrong policies of the Govt. and failure of the BSNL Management in providing required materials to field Units. With our efforts only the 30% disinvestment of BSNL could be wherein 20000 crs BSNL’s divested money was going out of the exchequer of the Govt. VRS to one lakhs workers was opposed because BSNL never provided the road map to maintain the existing 34000 telephone Exchanges in the country. Unbundling of copper conductor was also stopped that is why today BSNL’s Broad Band market share is more than 65% With our struggle only Rs.6740/- crores BSNL spectrum charges were refunded to BSNL Rs.1500 Rural deficit charges for the FY 2011-12 was paid by DOT to BSNL. now the sanction of Rs.1250 cr rural deficit charges has come from Govt.Efforts are being made to pay pension contribution on actual basic of BSNL employees instead of maximum of the pay.
Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations has served a notice to protect against the fragmentation of BSNL in Tower subsidiary. 15th Dec 2016 one day strike will be there to protest against the creation of Tower subsidiary.
In this manner AIBSNLEA is safeguarding the interest of all the BSNL executives and to save BSNL. AIBSNLEA have cordial relations with all the unions/Associations of BSNL. In view of the above all the BSNL executives are requested to vote and support to AIBSNLEA in the Executive Membership verification to save BSNL and its executives interest.
AIBSNLEA extends sincere gratitude and thanks to the CHQ of AIGETOA and their members for their unqualified support to AIBSNLEA in the membership verification. AIBSNLEA also reciprocate the same to AIGETOA and assure that after becoming No.1 executive Association, it will take all the efforts for the settlement of DR executives pending issues on top priority along with other issues.
AIBSNLEA extends its sincere thanks and gratitude to the AIGETOA for extending the unqualified support to AIBSNLEA in the forthcoming Membership Verification.

Status of HR Issues:
1. Implementation of Executives Promotion Policy in BSNL: AIBSNLEA untiring & persistent effort’s yielded result in getting issued Executive Promotion Policy on 18.01.2007 and got implemented but still some issues remains un-resolved as under:-
A. Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy- Change of designations on each Time Bound upgradation on functional basis: BSNL Management constituted a Joint Committee Headed by Shri M.A. KHAN, ED(NB) to submit a report on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, E2-E3 Pay scale to JTO/SDE equivalent executives and First time bound promotions on completion of four years. The KHAN Committee submitted its recommendations on both the issues i.e. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and E2-E3 Pay scale to JTO/SDE equivalent executives in the month of Sept. 2015 but due to reluctance of the nodal units i.e. Pers. Cell to implement the KHAN Committee report it is still pending. Recently, the Pers. Cell has given a proposal on the CPSU Cadre hierarchy. The final discussions on the issue with the Associations are yet to take place. It is, therefore, requested to kindly give your valuable suggestion in writing for taking them with the Management.
B. Implementation of E-2, E-3 standard IDA Pay scales to JTO and SDE equivalent executives in BSNL: No intermediary scales have been permitted under DPE O.Ms. Dated 26.11.2008 and 02.04.2009. Generally, promotion has to be from one ‘Grade’ to next higher ‘Grade’ with it corresponding scale as per the promotion policy of respective CPSEs. A CPSE cannot have more than one pay scale in a grade (say DGM & GM in E8 pay scale) to promote its executives within the same grade”. Ignoring the DPE O.Ms. on implementation of 2nd PRC recommendation for standard pay scales E-2 & E-3 for JTO/SDE equivalent executives, BSNL Management is continuing efforts to implement E1A & E2A intermediate IDA pay scales in BSNL for JTO/SDE equivalent executives, which is not at all justified. In view of this, standard IDA pay scales E-2 & E-3 as recommended by 2nd PRC and KHAN Committee has to be implemented in BSNL for JTO and SDE equivalent executives to provide justice. DPE has again clarified not to allow intermediary pay scales in PSUs.
After United Forum struggle in May-2016, the proposal for replacement of E1A by E2, E2A by E3 and subsequent scales upgradation has been approved by the Management Committee of BSNL Board and now pending for the approval of DoT.
C. Date of effect of Implementation of revised IDA Pay Scales for the Executives w.e.f. 1.10.2000: BSNL management has granted benefit of residency period w.e.f. 1.10.2000 to the Executives i.e. JTO/SDE (Civil/Electrical/Arch./TF) Engineering wings, CSSs, PAs/PSs, JAOs etc. for whom the RRs were notified after 1.10.2000 and accordingly the pay scales were upgraded. Whereas, as per Dr. Vinay Shahi’s committee recommendations the upgraded scales for the above executives’ should have been implemented w.e.f. 1.10.2000 on actual basis or notional basis. BSNL Corporate Office has issued order of notional pay fixation for JAOs w.e.f. 01.10.2000, we are demanding similar benefit to other upgraded cadres also. The proposal moved by PGM(BW) is still pending with BSNL Management.
D. Time bound promotion from E-5 to E-6 to the DGMs promoted from Grp.”B” Executives:. The proposal for modification in BSNL MS RR 2009 for Time bound promotion from E-5 to E-6 to the DGMs promoted from Grp.”B” Executives has been cleared by the MC. However, it is still awaited for withdrawal from the agenda of BSNL Board.
E. One time placement of SDE to Sr. SDE: As per DOT agreement and commitment of BSNL at the time of absorption of Group ‘B’ officers in BSNL on 01.10.2000, the SDEs who completed 5 years of regular service would be provided one time placement in the Sr. SDE grade. A proposal to give relief to the stagnating SDEs for their placement in the Sr. SDEs grade through Cadre Review Concept, on the back drop of the demand of the Association to reduce the eligibility criteria from 12 years to 5 years (As approved by Telecom Commission in 1994) for placement in the existing scheme, was approved by DoT and discussed in the GoM. This was subsequently remitted to BSNL. It was assured by Hon’ble MOC & IT, in the meeting held on 22-10-2001 with the Association that BSNL has agreed to the proposal in principle and a board memo was under preparation. We further understand that the memo was also finalized, but was not placed in the BSNL Board meeting. The majority of TES Group ‘B’ officers has been absorbed in BSNL and the BSNL Executive Promotional Policy is implemented w.e.f. 01-10-2000, the issue needs to be settled favorably. BSNL Management is continuously replying that since this issue was not in the terms and reference of absorption of Gr. ‘B’ Officers in BSNL, now it cannot be considered after implementation of the Executive promotion policy. We have requested Director (HR) to re-examine the case in view of the feedback provided by our Association.
F. Settlement of Pay anomaly cases wherein senior Executives are drawing less pay than their juniors:BSNL CO, Pers. Cell has filed SLP against Hon’ble High Court, Kerala judgment in The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, wherein AIBSNLEA has been impleaded. Hon’ble Supreme Court of India has dismissed the SLP of BSNL. AIBSNLEA has made the representation to extend the similar benefit to all as granted by Hon’ble High Court Kerala. Pers. Cell of BSNL Corporate Office is examining the case.
G. Amendment in BSNL MSRRs allowing Diploma holders to the promotion of EE: As per these BSNLMS RRs, the existing JTOs/SDEs (C/E/Arch) Engineering wings having diploma qualification were not eligible to be promoted to the grade of Assistant General Manager EE/Arch. AIBSNLEA strongly protested against this discrimination and finally BSNL Management issued amendment on BSNLMS RRs allowing Diploma holder SDEs (C/E/Arch) to the post of EE as per 1994 DoT RRs. We have again pleaded to remove discrimination on the pretext of degree/diploma qualification to the promotion of EE from SDE (C/E/Arch) and parity with the JTO (T) / SDE (T). On our persuasion a committee comprising of GM(Pers.), PGM(BW)/(EW)/(Arch) was constituted to examine the issue. We submitted our views to the committee members. Now the committee has submitted its recommendations to the Management Committee which has cleared the proposal. The BSNL Board approval is still expected. It is understood that 50%-50% EE(C/E) posts will be shared by the Degree and Diploma holder SDEs(C/E). Meanwhile DoT allowed diploma holders with 10 years technical experience to be treated at par with degree holders for EE promotions which was also endorsed by BSNL but it was challenged by some degree holders in the court and stay order has been granted. The case is pending in Hon’ble PB CAT New Delhi. We have further requested management to implement committee report to consider 50%-50% EE(C/E) posts shared by the Degree and Diploma holder SDEs(C/E).
2. 30%Superannuation benefits to directly recruited employees as per DPE guidelines: We requested CMD BSNL, Director (HR/EB) and ED (Finance) to resolve superannuation benefits to directly recruited employees as per DPE guidelines and BSNL should contribute 12% as Superannuation Benefits in respect of Direct Recruits to fulfill the limit of 30% contribution.The remuneration committee of BSNL Board recommended to start a superannuation benefit trust to directly recruited BSNL employees with a contribution of 3% initially and further it can be reviewed on the basis of financial health of the company. DoT issued the Presidential Directives in this regard and now, the BSNL Management is under process for creation of a trust and other formalities in this regard.
3. Management Trainees Recruitment Rule-2009: AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA’s consistent effort yielded results in getting deferred MT Exam - 2015 but some executives associations and non - executives Unions are continuously making efforts for MT recruitment. Our considered opinion is that since the CPSU Cadre hierarchy for non - post based promotions up to JAG selection grade is under discussion in Committee, the MTRRs has no relevance. The MT Examination notification has already been withdrawn. But, BSNL Management has to scrap the MTRRs.
4. DGM Recruitment: The qualified and experienced Executives in BSNL having 10 to 20 years of service should also get an opportunity to compete with others for the DGM posts by making appropriate, justified and rational changes in the eligibility conditions. This would mark the beginning of allowing BSNL to have a management structure of its own at DGM level which by virtue of age profile will be groomed into senior management in due course of time. This strategic move will not only meet the career growth of aspiring talented executives in BSNL but will immensely contribute towards growth and viability of BSNL. However, in the recently held DGM Recruitment it does not happen and the internal candidates however allowed writing the examination but their result is not declared treating them not-eligible.
6.CPCs to fill up the vacant JAG, STS Group ‘A’ & Group ‘B’ Grade posts in BSNL on adhoc/ Regular basis :
a. JTO (T) to SDE (T) CPC against seniority cum fitness quota (67%): The Court case regarding JTO to SDE promotions in the Hon’ble CAT Bench Chandigarh came for hearing on 31st March 2016 and dismissed. However, still there is a stay order granted by the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala on promotion from JTO to SDE. After vacation of the stay orders by Hon'ble High Court of Kerala, the CPC proceeding for JTO to SDE promotions will be expedited to fill up 6600 SDE(T) vacant posts.
b. LDCE from JTO (T) to SDE (T): BSNL conducted LDCE from JTO (T) to SDE (T) to fill-up the TES Gr.”B” LDCE quota vacancies of the year 2010-11but Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh granted stay order on declaration of result till the time the seniority quota promotion orders are issue. The Hon’ble CAT has now vacated the stay order and instructed the BSNL that the promotion orders as per the LDCE result can be issued subject to making suitable amendments in the SDE RR restricting reservations on promotions as per the judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. Now BSNL Management has to take a call on this.
c. CPC from SDE (T) to DE Regular: CPC from SDE (T) to DE Regular is in progress to fill up about 750 DEs posts but the promotion orders could not be issued due to stay order on promotions granted by Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh on the basis of SC/ST roster implementation in BSNL.

d. CPC form DE (T) to DGM (Engg.): The CPC was initiated to fill-up 480 DGM posts on Adhoc basis one year before but due to pendency of court case promotion orders could not be issued.

After submission of the report by the Committee the case was posted for hearing on 18.04.2016 and thereafter being listed on every Tuesday. But unfortunately, it could not be heard even for a single time due to paucity of the time. After taking the legal opinion from Sr. Advocate of BSNL, Addl. Solicitor General of India on TES Group ‘B’ seniority pending court cases , BSNL Management decided to expedite CPC and issued 213 DGM promotion orders on 03.03.2016 against which a contempt application was filed by 147 SDEs (LDCE quota) in Hon’ble Supreme Court which was dismissed. Thereafter BSNL Management continued to expedite CPC and issued 445 DGM promotion order on 31st March, 2016.

Now, as on date about 350 DGM Posts are vacant for which preparatory action for conducting the next CPC has been initiated.
e. CPC from JAO to AO: We continued our efforts to get expedite CPC and finally with our untiring efforts, the promotion orders from JAO to AO of 1552 AOs were issued wherein, majority AOs have been posted in the same circle, only a few AOs about 50 were posted to other circles that to nearby circles. Further CPC to fill up about 600 AO posts could not be initiated due to pending court case in the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh on SC/ST roster implementation in BSNL. The Hon’ble CAT has now vacated the stay order and instructed the BSNL that the promotion orders can be issued subject to restricting reservations on promotions as per the judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.

Further, CPC work of CAO regular promotion was in progress to fill up about 290 CAOs posts on regular basis and 336 CAOs posts of MT quota on adhoc basis but due to stay order granted by Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh, the promotion order could not be issued. The Hon’ble CAT has now vacated the stay order and instructed the BSNL that the promotion orders can be issued subject to restricting reservations on promotions as per the judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. Now BSNL Management has to take a call on this.

Lal's case restoring their earlier position and shall not put any employee over and above the present petitioners on the basis of the seniority in the service in the entry year. While implementing the above judgment DoT/BSNL has re-casted the seniority of 45+20+9+4=78 (about) TES Gr. 'B' officers only whereas, thousands of TES Gr. 'B' officers are to be provided similar benefit. Now TES Gr. 'B' officers promotions to DE is being issued on the basis of two seniority lists i.e. one on rule-1966 and another on para rule-206 basis. It has caused serious anomaly and heart burn to the TES Gr. 'B' officers in BSNL. Regarding implementation of Rule-206 or Rule-1966, BSNL Management has filed SLP in the Hon’ble Supreme Court for clarification. Hon’ble Supreme Court has delivered the judgment on 21.01.2015 on TES Gr. “B” seniority to re-casted on the basis of Rule – 206 and one expert committee headed by Shri Rammurthy, Retd Judge of Hon’ble High Court with one member has been constituted to submit report within a period of six months to examine the repercussions on beneficiaries of RR – 1966. After submission of the report by the Committee, the case was posted for hearing on 18.04.2016 and thereafter being listed on every Tuesday. But unfortunately, it could not be heard even for a single time due to paucity of the time.
270 SDEs seniority case:
The Hon'ble Supreme Court on 12.5.2008 passed an interim order for maintenance of "Status quo". Inspite of the said interim order BSNL issued promotion order for the posts of DGM to 172 DE/AGM out of 270 SDEs on 8.2.2012. Contempt petition no. 403 of 2012 was filed by promote Sh. M. Shamugam for initiating contempt processing against contemnor CMD BSNL and other officials of BSNL. The said contempt petition no. 403 of 2012 was listed before the Hon'ble Supreme Court on 26.7.2013 and the Hon'ble Court issued show cause notices and directed for personal appearance of contemnors CMD, BSNL, Director(HR) and AGM (Pers.) of BSNL. The Contempt Case was heard on 23rd Sept 2013 and disposed of but next date of hearing is yet to announced.
147 SDEs (LDCE Quota) retrospective seniority case:
AIBSNLEA’s OA 2126/2009 in Principal Bench CAT, New Delhi reference mentioned in the Operative portion of the judgment on 147 SDEs (LDCE Quota) retrospective seniority case:
“We have to remind ourselves, some more are waiting in the wings, watching the proceedings, to jump on at the appropriate time. We cannot, but, record our deep anguish and displeasure at such conduct. We say this, because, the matter has been raised in various Benches of the Central Administrative Tribunal in Chandigarh, Cuttack, Calcutta and the Principal Bench with varying results. We only notice the proceedings pending before the Principal Bench (Judicial I) Delhi of the Central Administrative Tribunal, in O.A 2126/2009 wherein all the 147 merit based candidates are stated to be parties. We have been taken through the order of the Principal Bench dated 21.9.2011 wherein the proceedings pending before the various Benches were noticed, while considering the application for reference to a larger Bench. The Principal Bench has referred to OA No.86/2009 which challenged the seniority of the 147 persons as also the stay order of this Court dated 18.2.2010. The Principal Bench in paragraph 11 held so:
Contention raised by the counsel for the respondents before us is that since two contradictory views have been expressed by different Benches of the Tribunal, namely, Ernakulum Bench and Chandigarh Bench, the matter should be referred to the Full Bench. We, however, of the opinion that even if the matter is referred to the Full Bench, no purpose would be served because ultimately this very issue is pending before the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala. Once the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala gives its view, it would be binding not only on the parties but also on the Tribunal unless, it is upset by the Hon'ble Supreme Court or by some other High Court in some other proceedings. At that time the matter can be finally resolved.”
BSNL filed an SLP in the Hon’ble Supreme Court along with other respondents. The last date of hearing was 18th April 2016 and thereafter being listed on every Tuesday. But unfortunately, it could not be heard even for a single time due to paucity of the time.
7. Restructuring of AD (OL) Cadre: The committee constituted under the Chairmanship of Addl. GM (Estt.) has submitted the report to the competent authority recommending to revise the pay scale of AD(OL). The Pers. Cell has received the clearance / comments of EF Cell and on that basis the revised proposal with matching saving concept is being processed to the competent authority for approval wherein the pay scales of AD(OL) will be at par with SDE/AO and 25% Sr. Hindi Translator posts are being upgraded equivalent to JTO cadre. After the approval of the competent authority in BSNL the case has been referred to DoT for ratification where it is being examined by the Estb Cell. Final orders will be taken after the concurrence of Finance Wing / DoT.
8. Regularization of offg. JTOs: The suggestion put forward by AIBSNLEA in the matter of regularization of the remaining officiating JTOs by a onetime personal upgradation, is the correct feasible and viable solution. On the basis of legal opinion BSNL Management decided to modify the JTO RR 2001 and accordingly a committee was constituted wherein AIBSNLEA submitted suggestions/views and finally committee submitted report to frame the new JTO-RR-2014. After the approval of BSNL Management Committee and BSNL Board, the regularization of the Offg JTOs started and now all the officiating JTOs have completed their Phase-II training and joined as regular JTO.
AIBSNLEA filed case in the Hon’ble Principal CAT Delhi for granting FR-22(1)a(i) pay fixation benefits to the Officiating JTOs and got favorable judgment which has been implemented partially in most of the circle. That is over payment recovery has been stopped. But, pay has been reduced as per the corporate office letter dated 22.12.2015. AIBSNLEA pursuing for the extension of FR 22 (1)(a)(i) benefits to the officiating JTOs.
9. Allowing to exercise option to Departmental JAOs on their promotion: The pay anomaly case of departmental JAO-2010 batch joined after 7th May 2010 was taken up by AIBSNLEA and got settled favorably.
10. E1+5 Increments benefit to JTO (SRD), JAOs 2013 batch and PAs: The BSNL Management Committee has cleared the proposal of E1+5 Increments benefit to JTO (SRD), JAOs 2013 batch and PAs which is still pending for BSNL Board approval.
11. Antedating of pay - anomaly due to accrual of increment of Junior earlier than the senior after fixation of pay in revised pay scale implementation of 2nd PRC: We further requested to restore the original order dated 23.09.2009 wherein provision for ante-dating the increment of the senior to that of the junior was envisaged. Alternatively, management can think of any other solution that will address the issue of anomaly wherein the junior does not draw more pay than the senior and also the senior does not face any drop in his basic pay which he/she will be drawing by virtue of the 3% annual increment provided in the rule. The Committee constituted to examine the case has not recommended changing the present order. We will still continue to pursue the case till its resolution to our satisfaction.
12. Implementation of DPE order for payment of 78.2% IDA fitment benefit w.e.f. 01.01.2007 in BSNL Pensioners: DoT has issued Presidential Directives and orders for implementation of 78.2% IDA pay fixation for existing BSNL employees on 10.06.2013. Similarly now, DoT has also issued Presidential Directives and orders for implementation of 78.2% IDA pay fixation for BSNL Pensioners also.
13. Payment of pension contribution of the IDA pay scales: We requested to BSNL Management to take up the matter with DoP&T/DoT for modification in payment of pension contribution from highest of IDA pay scale to the actual basic pay from BSNL. As the case was referred to DPP&W and DOP&T by DoT and now DoT vide letter no. 7-45/2008/TA-I/409-433 dated 01.03.2012 submitted that Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) has not concurred the above proposal. Hence the Pension contribution in respect of absorbed BSNL employees are to be recovered as per the previous methodology as stipulated vide DoT letter no. 7-45/2008/TA-I/409-433 dated 25.02.2010.
