CS,President,ACS,OSs alongwith CS & AGS/CHQ AIGETOA met GM(HR & Admn.) 0n 18-05-2016.We strongly protested & conveyed our resentment about a recent transfer order in DGM grade.We reacted against the way the transfer order was issued proactively in an unprecedented way while the same GM is turning deaf ear to several request transfer case pending for months together.

We also criticized the way to retain some SDEs relieved in ERP.Although it was known to the authority since November 2015 no fruitful action was made by the HR section in time.Now hastily some effort has been taken which is neither beneficial to the particular executives nor to CTD.This is the outcome of ineffective role of the HR section particularly of GM(HR).

Later we met GM(NWO/P CFA II) and protested abot the way department is trying to put all additional loads upon the shoulders of members of our Associations only.We requested him to rearrange executives in the Areas under his jurisdiction so that the shortage & workload may be equitably distributed to run the show.GM appreciated our view & informed us he has already taken the run down the executive strength in different sections for this purpose.We indicated our resentment about the way DGM Central had been transferred.


It has been confirmed that the request for granting one more chance to Sri K D Bhagat has been recommended favourably & forwarded to BSNL CO by the competent authority of CTD.CS will pursue the case with GS for early disposal.


On 17-05-2016 CEC meeting was held in Association Room.Members present there discussed about resolutions to be moved in 5th AIC.

The postponed Circle Executive meeting of AIBSNLEA/CTD will be held on 17-05-2016 at Association Office from 10 AM. All concerned are requested to attend in time.


 Meeting with CMD BSNL

CMD BSNL Called President AIGETOA, GS AIBSNLEA and GS SNEA for a meeting. CMD Mentioned that in this financial year, BSNL has shown good performance vis-à-vis the last year and requested us to reconsider us that agitation program will adversely effect the  growth of BSNL. He shown us the messages from field units wherein it was mentioned that all executives are sitting outside and work is badly suffering and BSNL is not in position to afford it for even 10 minutes. Hence intervene and control the situation.

United forum explained that we have been demanding  implementation of Khan Committee report in its true spirit and as assured by Director (HR), the recommendations be implemented first and the anomalies can be examined later on. We also  requested that CPSU cadre hierarchy with scrapping of MT recruitment and DGM RRSs  with no lateral recruitment above JTO/JAO cadre, immediate holding of CPCs to fill up all group A and Group B vacant posts and settlement of other demands.

However, we have been taken aback with the one more U turn by GS SNEA as he said now anomalies be examined first ( Perhaps for the first time anomalies which will happen in future should be examined before implementation) and then scales be replaced perhaps sensing the mood of CMD BSNL inclination towards our view. He further demanded MT recruitment be held immediately with one more absurd logic that exams cannot be scrapped once notified..

We further informed CMD BSNL that his HR team is working overnight to derail all the issues and infact the decisions conveyed at the level of CMD/Director (HR) is also not being obeyed and HR team acts just opposite what is decided at that level. Perhaps they may not be as concerned as CMD and Director (HR) for the reasons know to all of us….

CMD decided to hold the meeting with United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA on Thursday, 19th May in presence of Director (HR).

We requested CMD to give final settlement and administrative orders on the issues after the meeting as already lot of discussions have taken place.


CS,ACS,VP alongwith sectional representative met to welcome the newly posted Chief Engineer(Electrical) Sri Subir Kumar Biswas on 11-05-2016 at his chamber at 2/5A J C Road.We greeted him with a flower bouquet.Some discussion also taken place as follows:


1.Regular/EPP Promotion delay: We pointed out that different promotions of executives at electrical sections are being delayed due to vigilance clearance as it is routed via WB circle. 

CE intimated us as WB circle is declared as co-ordinating circle by BSNL CO,the VC are routed like this.However he will talk to both the DGM(Vig.) take proper steps so that it may be done from Vigilance section of CTD for CTD executives.

2.Delay in settling Medical Claims especially for retired executives:We intimated that due to non creation od R code of executives medical claims are kept aside after introduction of ERP.At least 14-15 retired executives are suffering.

CE took note and assured to take up the case with Accounts section & it will be settled soon.

3.Procurement of Computer & allied accessories:We pointed out that due to implementation of ERP at different offices Computrers are necessary.We wanted immediate procurement.

CE intimated that 38 new computers are being procured at DGS&D rate.Payment modalities are to be finalised.The a second lot may be procured.However the problem will be settled soon.

4.Life expired ACs replacement:We intimated him that due to non replacement of life expired ACs several BTS &  RLUs are not working properly.As a result of it service is being hampered.

CE informed us that 203 nos.of ACs hve been procured and being despatched to different sites for installation.Scrapping of old ones are also being processed.Second lot will be purchased after finalising the payment modality. He expected that this problem will be sorted out very early.

5.Unjustified transfer orders: We informed that an effort was made recently to destabilise our members by issuing unjustified transfer orders.However with our intervention the competent authority has stopped it.We wanted that in future orders may issued as per norms & guidelines of Dept.We are not opposing any justified transfer orders.The association may be consulted in this case.

CE took note of this and assured any such orders will be issued as per need & norms in this regard will be adhered to.Associations may be consulted if required.

6.Lift in Chittaranjan Building:We intimated that lift of Chittaranjan Exch.building is out of order since a couple of years.It is very troublesome for employees & customers also to climb stories through steps.We requested some immediate action.

CE was astonished to know this fact as last time when he was in CTD he was aware of this problem.However he assured to look into this matter for early solution.

Some local problems were discussed also.

The meeting ended in very encouraging atmosphere.We requested him for granting us a full agenda meeting in future & assured for warm co-operation for the betterment of BSNL & hoped that under his dynamic leadership we surely can progress towards betterment.


BSNL Managements biased and indifferent attitude towards executives who turned around the company is reflected in the record of discussion published by SR Cell on 11.05.2016:

Record of discussion of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA meeting with Director (HR) has been released wherein the issues / demands raised by Association and the proposed disposal / settlement plan by BSNL Management is attached.  BSNL Corporate Office vide letter number BSNL/7-3/SR/2015 dated 11.05.2016 issues target dates on the agenda items / issues raised by Associations relating to Pers. / Estt Section<<<<Click here for the letter of SR Cell >>>Wherein, regarding conduction of various CPCs in Telecom Finance and Accounts, Telecom Factory Wings and CPC from JTO (C/E) to SDE (C/E) and EE(C/E) to SE (C/E) has not been mentioned. Our comments on various issues are as under:

1. Regarding AD (O/L) cadre restructuring proposal based of the committee report is being further delayed for next two months,

2. Pay anomaly cases with respect to juniors despite the Hon’ble Supreme Court judgement is being further delayed for the next four months.

3. Khan Committee recommendations on CPSU cadre hierarchy are totally ignored   and further modified structure will be planned in next two months and thereafter a joint committee will be formed to look into the implementations wherein the final proposal will be submitted after four months to the committee. In this manner the CPSU cadre hierarchy issue will be further dragged years together.

4. E2 and E3 scales for JTO and SDE equivalent executives: It is understood that BSNL Management will be submitting a memo to the MC of BSNL Board for grant of E2 and E3 scales for JTO and SDE equivalent cadres in replacement of E1A and E2A scales respectively with necessary changes as per recommendations of the Khan Committee wherein, it is being submitted that SDE and Sr. SDEs will remain in the E3 pay scales for ten years which is in violation of EPP and cannot be accepted.

5. Scrapping of the MTRR: Matter under review and proposal modified will be submitted to MC of BSNL Board wherein some modifications are suggested despite the assurances given in the meeting held with CMD BSNL on 14.12.2015 for scrapping the MTRR.

6. DGM RR: Despite the assurances given in the meeting held with CMD BSNL on 14.12.2015 for scrapping DGM RRs further a joint committee is proposed to be formed to complicate the issue.

7. Extending 30% superannuation benefits to BSNL recruited employees: A proposal approved by BSNL Board is being sent to DoT for approval by 15.06.2016 wherein 3% contribution from BSNL will be made as the superannuation benefits to the BSNL recruited employees whereas 6% contribution was assured earlier.

8. One time relaxation to steno grade III for their promotion to PA cadre: Ignoring the demand it is mentioned that Stenographer –III are covered under NEPP for promotions, in additions to the provisions available for the LICE for the post of PA. No further action is required on the subject is not acceptable.

9. Pay fixation in respect of Departmental outsider TTAs appointed as JTOs:  These Departmental TTA under direct recruitment quota after tendering technical resignation cannot be treated as promotions hence the options under Para 3.6 of the office order date 07.05.2010 is not admissible. The case is being killed by Estt. Cell ignoring the DoP&T pay fixation rules as well as other PSUs pay fixation orders.

10. E1+5 increments benefits to JTO (SRD), JAO 2013 Batch and PA cadre: The BSNL Board has given the approval on this issue for the executives’ recruited upto18.07.2014 only. The executives recruited in the year 2015 are not covered with this proposal.

11. Notional pay fixation of E1A and E2A for Civil/Electrical Wings w.e.f 01.10.2000: SEA branch has stated that the instruction issued in respect of JAO are in consonance with MoF order which was duly approved by DoT but the fact remains that the MoF order was related to AAO pay scales which was duly approved by DoT and not for JAOs. The Dr. Vinay Shahi, Ex. Jt. DDG (SEA) committee report was for the purpose of time bound IDA scale upgradation on actual basis but BSNL Management decided only the residency for the purpose of EPP. It is understood that further proposal is being submitted to the management to kill the case finally.


In view of the above, it seems that the management is adamant with an indifferent and biased attitude in not settling any of the genuine case hence there is no reason to re-think on our ongoing agitation program rather there is need to strengthen it to give a befitting reply to the anti-executives management.


One can understand the plan game of one sister Association which is playing in the hands of BSNL Management and helping in killing the issues for the reasons best known to them only.

Only some critical cases with chronic disease and recommended by CGMs are being examined and considered.

The DHARNA PROGRAMME on 12-05-2016 has been deferred to 13-05-2016 on the request of CMD to CHQ due to counting of verification of Non Executive Unions.However other day's programme should implemented in full spirit.


United Forum of BSNL Executives’ Associations comprising AIBSNLEA AND AIGETOA served agitation notice against breach of commitment and assurances given by Management

In spite of BSNL Management’s firm commitment and assurance given vide letter No. BSNL/7-3/SR/2015 dated 14.12.2015, BSNL Management has not taken any concrete action for settlement of the long pending genuine demands, United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA had several informal and formal meetings with the GM (Pers.), GM (Estt), Director (HR) and CMD BSNL but the issues could not be resolved due to the total negative attitude of the Establishment and Pers. Cell of BSNL CO.  In all the meetings CMD BSNL and Director (HR) have appreciated our concern and assured positive action but due to the negative approach of Estt and Pers. Cell, majority of the issues could not be resolved.  Recently on 26.4.2016 in the meeting held with Director (HR) it was pleaded by all the Executive Associations to implement Khan Committee report first by replacing E1 A by E2 and E2 A by E3 IDA Pay sales which was appreciated by Director (HR) but the GM (Estt) continued to plead that before implementation of Khan Committee report on E2 and E3 IDA Pay scales, it should be ensured that one SDE equivalent executive having E3 Pay scales will get his next financial upgradation as Sr. SDE in the same pay sale of E3 only. Which AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA strongly protested and categorically demanded the next subsequent time bound promotion in the higher grade E4 should be there only as per the provisions of EPP wherein it is  clearly envisaged that “first time bound financial upgradation during 4-6 years and subsequent time bound financial upgradations after every 5 years only”.  Hence, after E3 pay scale the next time bound upgradation after 5 years should be there in the higher pay scale of E4 only. We can’t accept E3 scale for 10 years for SDE and Sr. SDE without any pay fixation benefit.  Whereas, our sister Association told that they will be happy in case (SDE) E3 to (Sr. SDE) E4 upgradation is given after%2
