21 Dec 20: Approval of Rule 8 and Rule 9 Request of JAOs: In continuation to continuous persuasion by SNEA MH with CGMT MH Circle, finally CGMT MH has conveyed approval for considering Rule 8 Request transfers of eligible JAOs.

·        Now all these applications with the approval of CGMT MH will be sent to concern Circles for getting consent for acceptance of requests of these JAOs by concerned Circles. On receipt of the consent the relieving orders will be issued by Maharashtra Circle for Rule 8 transfers of all eligible JAOs. On rule 9 transfers, it is reported that the matter will be reviewed case by case and decision will be taken as per the guidelines on the subject.

·        This issue of JAO Rule 8 /9 Request transfers was pending for last one year for one or other manmade issues and SNEA MH was consciously pursuing it from officers in FC/Staff section to CGMT MH. Earlier it was matter of dispute between FC section and Staff section who will issue orders in revised scenario and it was finally decied that all transfers in Finance wing will be issued by GM HR Admn Mumbai in consultation of GM Fin Mumbai. Then it was matter of tracing applications received from all in FC and Staff section, its consolidation of applications and data and processing in e files,  the delay on part of staff section in processing files once consent and green signal was given by CGMT MH to go ahead with processing file  for approval quoting different reasons then approval of CGMT MH with concurrence of GM Fin Mumbai and so on.

·       SNEA MH had many rounds of discussions with CGMT MH conveying hardship and difficulties of these JAOs. In our recent meeting with CGMT MH on 16/11/2020 also this was one of important issue and CGMT MH has assured for consideration of it. Finally CGMT MH has conveyed approval and given relief to the JAOs who were waiting for their turn of request transfer for long time.

·       SNEA MH conveys thanks to Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra, CGMT MH Circle and Shri. Vivek Mahavar, GM Fin Mumbai for giving consideration to long pending Rule 8/9 request transfers of JAOs.


 21 Dec 20: Meeting with Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra CGMT MH Circle: Delegation of SNEA met Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra, CGMT MH Circle on 16/12/2020 and had detail discussions on ongoing and pending HR issues. Shri. M. K. Mishra, GM HR Admn Mumbai and Shri. K.H. More DGM Admn Mumbai were also present as per directions of CGMT MH Circle. The details of discussions are as follows.

·        Special Request to BSNL CO for one time Grant of funds for all pending Temporary Advances in ERP: We have once again requested CGMT MH for taking up matter with BSNL CO for grant of funds for releasing pending payments of Temporary advances. We added that executives in field units are facing hardship and as we are reaching towards the end of financial year, we fear that all Temporary advances will be closed and the executives will be again in trouble as happened in past. CGMT MH informed that letter has been already written to BSNL CO and assured to take review of it.

·        Consideration of Rule 8 and Rule 9 Request of JAOs: We have once again drawn attention of CGMT MH on consideration of long pending Rule 8 & Rule 9 request transfers of JAOs and even though it has been positively assured by him in our all meetings in recent past, the issue is not cleared and the concerned JAOs have now become panic. CGMT MH informed that the file has been processed long back and it is with him. He has called for requirement of JAOs in Maharashtra Circle and assured that after review of the MH requirement he will take final decision accordingly within 2-3 days.

·        ERP Relieving of willing Executives from Tenure/Non tenure stations: We have conveyed thanks for intervention of CGMT MH in relieving of executives under transfer from Tenure Stations to better extent and drawn his attention towards fact that few left out executives are waiting for their relieving. WE added that many of the executives under transfer are ready to join the tenure stations, but they are not being relieved by concerned SSA or their controlling officers and request to relieve all such officer through ERP. CGMT MH assured to review matter and take final call on this matter shortly.

·        Consideration of Request Transfers from Non-Tenure SSAs: We have brought to notice of CGMT MH that nowadays some selected orders are being issued by Staff section on pick and choose basis only in respect of officers who can convey their grievances to GM HR Admn Mumbai or CGMT MH Mumbai by personal visits to Mumbai or through some other sources. But there are many officers who have not represented their grievances by personal visit to Mumbai or through these sources are till waiting for consideration of their own cost request transfers. Such pick and choose orders have created mass unrest among these executives and we requested to give consideration to all pending request transfers. We have reminded CGMT MH about our last discussions and his direction to then GM HR Admn Mumbai about consideration of one to one transfers, mutual transfers, chain transfers and transfer from SSAs having excess executives to SSAs having shortage of executives wherein no cost of BSNL is involved and the concern of BSNL for posting executives at required places can be taken care. By understanding our concern, CGMT MH directed GM HR Admn Mumbai to process the pending request transfers and assured to decide matter suitably at the earliest. 

·        Request Transfers of Executives in Electrical wing: We have brought to the notice of CGMT MH that there is dispute in the issue that who will issue the transfer orders of executives in Electrical wing as some orders are issued by GM HR Admn Mumbai and some orders are being issued by Electrical wing and both these offices are issuing orders on pick and choose basis. CGMT MH informed that all the transfers of all wings including Electrical wing will be issued by GM HR Admn Mumbai in consultation with concerned vertical Head and vertical heads will not issue any orders for change of SSA and directed GM HR Admn Mumbai to follow this procedure equally for all. We have informed him that in Electrical wing and in some other units, the applications for request transfers are kept on hold by the controlling officers and we brought to is notice similar action by CE Elect Nagpur. CGMT MH informed that no application will be kept on hold by any officer and same should be forwarded to GM HR Admn Mumbai with recommendations. CGMT MH further assured that he will direct CE Elect Nagpur to forward all such applications kept on hold in his office if any. We have further brought to notice of many of the request of JTOs in Electrical wing and requested CGMT MH to consider all requests at the earliest. CGMT MH informed that the review of requirement of Electrical wing executives in all SSAs will be taken as per the restructuring norms and requirement for centralized Electricity Billing works at Mumbai and accordingly all requests of electrical wing executives will be given shortly.

·        Corrective action on wrong SDE LA Orders issued by office CE Electrical Mumbai: We have once again elaborated issue of wrong procedure followed by Electrical wing Mumbai in issuing SDE Elect LA Orders and certain officers are deliberately deprived from SDE LA by keeping post vacant in certain SSA and posting additional SDEs in certain SSA. We reminded him that as per discussions with him. We have submitted grievances in writing and more than one month passed on it but no corrective action is being taken either from GM HR Admn Mumbai or by CE Electrical Mumbai even though all officers agrees that there is mistake in issuing SDE ELA orders by Electrical wing and it violates recent BSNL CO guidelines issued by BSNL CO for issuing orders for LA arrangements up to DE/EE cadre. We again expressed our concern about filling of vacant post of SDE/EE Electrical at major SAs like Pune, Nashik, Nanded, Sindhudurg, Ratnagiri etc on priority basis. After clearly understanding the issue, CGMT MH directed to GM HR Admn Mumbai to review the requirement of SDEs/EEs in all SSAs as per the revised norms being finalized by Electrical wing Delhi and its copy is available with CEE Mumbai and issue revised orders for SDE Elect and EE Elect under looking After arrangements as per the local seniority in that SSA and in conclusion directed to close this issue being repeatedly raised by association with corrective action as per directions on the subject.

·        Vertical wise Posting of DGMs in CO Mumbai: We have brought to notice of CGMT MH that though DGM LA orders are issued no posting has been done allotting vertical to them. GM HR Admn Mumbai said that there is no need of allotment of verticals and individual may should take charge of DGM of the AGM post they are holding as norms are not yet issued by BSNL CO for posting of executives in Circle Office. We have submitted the list  of the vacant post and officers orders LA arrangements and made it clear that in one Vertical more officers are given LA arrangements than the post vacant and in some vertical posts are vacant but no AGM is eligible DGM LA. Inaction on part Staff section for issuing posting order is wrong and if these officers were to be posted at same AGM post then there was no need of issuing DGM LA Orders. . CGMT MH agreed to our concern that without issuing orders for vertical posting as DGM no one can take charge of DGM post. Understanding concern raised by us and after going through the list of AGMs ordered for DGM LA and vacant post of DGMs in different verticals in Circle Office Mumbai, CGMT MH directed GM HR Admn Mumbai to bring details to him and he will decided posting accordingly within no time and orders for posting as DGM may it be in same vertical or change of vertical needs to be issued

·        Looking After arrangement in AGM/SDE Cadres: We have brought to the notice of CGMT MH that after DM posting and earlier also many of the post of AGMs/DEs and SDEs are vacant in telecom, Electrical and Civil wing and BSNL CO has given directions for filling vacant post through local seniors and in many of SSAs such LA orders are issued and are being extended or fresh orders are being issued locally. But in certain SSAs and in particular in Circle Office Mumbai, no such Looking After arrangements are issued as per seniority in JTO and SDE cadre as individual are directed to hold the charges as per wish of vertical Heads and SSA Heads in some cases. As such there is need of issuing LA orders for filling vacant post of SDEs and DEs in these units under LA arrangements so that certain uniformity is maintained equally for all. CGMT MH directed GM HR Admn Mumbai to look into this issues.

·        Undue delay in Pay Fixation of VRS Opted then Offg JTOs: We conveyed thanks to CGMT MH for giving concern to stand of SNEA MH to nominate an AO centrally for dealing with issues of Revised Pay Fixation of JTOs who opted for VRS and then BSNL Corporate Office has directed for their pay fixation as per directions of Hon Court. But while implementing the order instead of posting experienced AO/JAO, one newly recruited JAOs who is not aware about the procedure of pay fixation is spared aby posted by Finance wing and hence no work has been started even after new JAO has joined duties on her transfer. CGMT asked DGM Admn what are the issues and he also confirmed that it would have been appropriate that experienced AO should have been posted for this work and new JAO posting has added burden on the single AO in his office as new JAO is reporting to her. CGMT MH informed that there nothing new and old if she has nay issue in understanding issues, she should discuss it with other experience persons and its responsibility of her controlling officers to get work done. She will not be final authority and the revised fixation will also be checked by her seniors and there should be any reason for delaying works. He directed DGM Admn Mumbai to start the works of revised pay fixation immediately. The DGM Admn Mumbai informed that the files of individual are at SSAs and hence facing issues. WE have informed that service book are with CCA hence it has been decided to settle all such cases centrally and if not then please see that all service books are sent to SSA and they can complete the pay fixation and drawn attention of CGMT MH that this issue is pending for last 4-5 months and no proper action is being taken. Finally CGMT MH directed DGM Admn Mumbai to start work immediately by taking service books from CCA and files and documents required if any from SSA may be called by email and work must be completed centrally and without further delay.

·        Release of withheld Leave Encashment of VRS Opted Executives: We have brought to notice of CGMT MH the critical issues faced by the executives who have retired in recent past or opted for VRS and their pensionary benefits are kept on hold. CGMT MH informed that these are cases wherein complaints of cate validity and cases where individuals have not submitted documents in SAMPANNA. He added that efforts are made by persuasion with SSAs for submission of documents and till there is reluctance on part of individuals and review of such cases is being done. On the cases of pending Caste Validity, the matter has been discussed with Director HR BSNL Board and issue has been discussed to the depth. As per discussions and decision in last VC with Director HR, the details have been sent to BSNL CO and reply is awaited. On queries, it is being informed that reply will be sent soon, which is expected at any time.

·        Withholding of Pension of certain Officers/Officials by CCA for want of information from Maharashtra Circle: We have brought to his notice of CGMT MH that in certain cases, even provisional Pension of some of executives have been stopped since July 2020 and no action is taken on it. CGMT MH informed that there is no such case and provisional pension is being paid to all VRS opted executives. We have brought to his notice where Provisional pension is stopped by CCA as required information is not submitted by GM HR Admn Mumbai. There is dispute between GM HR Admn Mumbai and CCA Mumbai about the cases where individual have applied for Caste validity before VRS/Retirement and CCA says that these names are not added in the list of revised letter for provisional pension by GM HR Admn Mumbai and GM HR Admn Mumbai was of the opinion that there is no need of any such letter as they should be paid regular pension. As new GM HR Admn Mumbai was not aware about the issue, CGMT MH called DGM Admn Mumbai who confirmed information expressed by us and views expressed by us on ongoing dispute and pension of some of employees is kept on hold since July 2020. Then CGMT MH got update information from DGM Admn Mumbai and he confirmed that there are such 49 cases and he has received such representations which are under process of consideration. Then CGMT MH directed us to take up matter with CCA Mumbai. We have narrated that we have already taken up matter with CCA Mumbai, it was informed that the provisional Pension is being paid to the employees whose names appears in the list given by GM HR Admn Mumbai but these cases are not referred in the revised list submitted. After understanding issue to the depth CGMT MH directed GM HR Admn/DGM Admn Mumbai to take up matter a fresh and see that pension of all such executives and non-executives in restored at the earliest.

·        Review of Fake caste complaints and sympathetic consideration of request by individuals: We have brought to the notice of CGMT MH about the hardship faced by the executives against whom complaints have been received about Fake caste certificate and are facing extreme difficulties to get Cast validity due to changed scenario. Many of the employees have got Caste certificate from the competent Authority as per the prevailing guidelines on the subject at that time and have submitted it for getting employment in DoT and BSNL. But later the process of Caste Validity has been introduced by Maharashtra Government wherein the proof of caste before 1960 establishing caste are required and many of the employees are facing issues in getting such documents and hence there is need of review of the cases one by one and cases by case and not in masses as being done presently. CGMT MH informed that he is aware about the issue as same is being discussed for years together. The caste certificate is issued by State Government and whatever rules are being followed in state will be blindly followed by BSNL and we have no alternatives for same. WE have narrated him the conspiracy being played with only ST Category employees in BSNL Maharashtra Circle and some from Staff Section Mumbai or ERP Team has handed over list of about 900 BSNL employees recruited in Maharashtra Circle under ST Category and compliant has been made against each and every employees recruited under ST Category. Since last 3-4 years, all are being tortured by naming them as Fake/ Bogus Caste certificate and are running from pillars to post for getting validity and some are successful. But many are still able to get Caste certificate and its authenticity from issuing authority office records, but are not able to get the Caste validity as old documents establishing caste of his/her Caste forefathers are not available. If cases are reviewed as per the information given by them and certain procedures followed in other departments and offices, the matter can be resolved. Such extreme harassment is being done only in BSNL Maharashtra Circle and mater is not handled properly by certain officers in staff section and now everybody is running away from responsibility showing fingers at others and is busy in establishing how he is right. It is unfortunate that the employees who could get validity were named as Bogus/Fake caste person just on such mass complaint on basis of deliberately leaked ERP data of ST category employees in BSNL MH Circle. We added that there may be some real cases of Bogus/Fake Caste certificate and we do not advocate for such cases and BSNL is free to deal with all such cases. It is mistake of BSNL /DoT Officers/Offices concerned who did not take corrective action as directed by BSNL and kept issue pending linking it to validity and treating employees as Bogus/Fake in mass. This is really painful to these individuals and their family members that at the verge of retirement or after retirement also they are being deliberately tortured. Listening patiently to our concern, CGMT MH replied that he has sympathy towards all but these complaints are old and being perused y complainant as well as affected employees with supporting documents and is office has tried its level best to get solutions. He added that his office is bound by the prevailing guidelines on the subject and no one from BSNL can go beyond these guidelines and directed that issue can be resolved only if the State Government confirms the views expressed by these individuals and matter can cleared either with caste validity by individuals or by orders from competent authority of Maharashtra Government confirming the say of these individuals and directed us to take up matter accordingly and assured full co-operation from BSNL side to settle all such disputed cases one by one or case by case as per directions of competent authority.

Provision of One Lakh FTTH Connections by Maharashtra Circle is also important milestone achievement

·        This is result of collective efforts put by all the Staff, Officers and Business partners of BSNL i.e. TIPs/RBSPs who have put dedicated efforts in achieving this milestone. It is important that provision of FTTH Connections is adding good revenue for BSNL as compared to any other product of BSNL and hence there is need to put all out efforts by all the staff /officers and business partners to provide maximum FTTH Connections in days to come. Provision of FTTH Connections on demand by customer will be important action on part of all of us for survival of BSNL and our survival in such strong BSNL.

 6 Dec 20: AGM Staff Mumbai issued SSA/BA wise Executive strength as per the revised guidelines issued by BSNL Corporate Office for Restructuring and consolidation of BAs/SSA. Letter <<<>>>

·        SNEA MH is pursuing for the request transfers for non-tenure SSAs for long time and every time the reason of revised staff strength was quoted by the management and no progress was seen for last six months.

·        Before implementation of VRS, BSNL CO has issued guidelines for deployment of executives in Post VRS scenario.  Copy <<<>>> 

·        Maharashtra Circle also issued letter showing excess /shortage of executives. Copy <<<>>> 

·        Earlier also such strength executive was issued and many transfers from excess to shortage SSAs were proposed, but there were issues as mass dislocation was proposed from Major SSAs and hence we have opposed such mass transfers and CGMT MH was kind enough to understand the grievances raised by SNEA MH. . Copy <<<>>> 

·        Otherwise with consolidation of BAs, the Executives transferred to SSAs on name of excess/shortage would have been again transferred to BA locations because with consolidation of BAs, number of post of executives at BAs has increased and it is reduced at SSAs.

·        SNEA MH was continuously on job about proper justification and finally the guidelines for BA consolidation has been issued by BSNL CO. Copy <<<>>> 

·        The guidelines are also issued for Executive Requirement for GSM Mtce works within BAs/SSAs. Copy <<<>>> 

·        Till the guidelines for justification of executives in Circle Office, Mobile Nodal centers are not issued by BSNL CO and same are expected at any time.

·        Since last two months GM HR Admn Mumbai has worked on the calculating executive strength in each BA and Area Operation as per these guidelines for consolidation of BAs/SSAs and justification of executives depending on assets.

·        It is informed by GM HR Admn Mumbai that this data has been discussed with all BA Heads in VC held by CGMT MH and all BA Heads have given consent for same.

·        In Operation Areas/SSAs headed by DGMs, minimum two executives (JE/JTO/SDE counted together) are justified per SDCA, two are justified for Indoor Works, Four for BTS Mtce, Four for Trans Mtce, two each for Sales & Mktg, EB, Stores and Commercial/BB.

·        In Operation Areas/SSAs headed by AGMs, minimum two executives (JE/JTO/SDE counted together) are justified per SDCA, one for Indoor Works, two For BTS Mtce, two for Trans Mtce, one each for Sales & Mktg, EB, Stores and Commercial/BB.

·        The staff strength for Circle Office. Nodal Centre Pune and RTCC has been prepared on basis of working strength or requirement

·        It is seen that there is adjustment in data on basis of some presumptions and hence there is reduction in post in Big SSAs and there is increase in post at small SSAs.

·        If calculation is done without any assumptions and presumptions and only as per norms issued by BSNL Corporate office, there will be changes in excess/shortage strength of SSAs.

·        This data is prepared on basis of the transfer orders issued and with understanding that all the transfer orders will be implemented and the working executive strength for purpose of excess/shortage in any SSA/BA is counted accordingly. This also includes the recent DGM LA transfer orders issued recently. It seems that many of SSA/BA Heads have not gone to the depth of calculations as done by GM HR Admn Mumbai and hence there is much difference in executive strength with practical requirement in SSAs and BAs.

·        As such, all the DS/DOBs and activists are requested to go through all the Circulars issued by BSNL CO, the assets in SSAs like No. of BTS/Trans Route Kms with SSAs, other post which are working for other SSAs like NCNGN, BB, FTTH, CDR etc and the calculation of Executive strength done and actual available executives in SSAs.

·        All are requested to discuss this issue with SSA/BA Heads as fresh for discrepancies if any and matter may be conveyed in writing to GM HR Admn Mumbai with detail justification and relevant documents.

·        The details of discrepancies may also be sent by email on so that matter can be taken up with GM HR Admn/CGMT MH for required corrections.

·        Once the Executive strength is finalized the executives in excess/shortage can be decided and the request transfers from Non Tenure SSAs can be given consideration without further delay and hence early action and response from all DS will highly appreciated.

 4 Dec 20: AD Staff A Mumbai issued transfer orders of JAOs/AOs in Maharashtra Circle considering request transfers as well as company cost transfer orders as per the revised justification of consolidated BAs  Letter <<<>>>

·        Though SSA/BA wise Executive strength of account wing is not officially published, but it is understood that as per revised norms three JAOs/AOs are justified in SSAs/Operation Area and about 11 JAOs/AOs are justified in BAs wherein JAOs/AOs are equally counted in strength.

·        As per these norms, the request transfers at Own Cost are given consideration and some transfers are issued in the interest of service i.e. Company cost from SSAs having excess Executives mainly from SSAs to BAs as number of Executives at BA have increased three times of SSAs as majority works of SSAs are centralized at BAs.

·        It is seen that though majority of request transfers are given consideration, some of executives are transferred from one corner of Circle to another corner and this will certainly cause extreme hardship to the individuals.

·        There are some cases, where some executives are already transferred but their names are shown again in this transfer order and we have brought to the notice of Staff section for corrective action. 

·        The individuals having any grievances in these transfer posting may represent their grievances and send it through proper channel to AGM Staff Mumbai by email on or and its copy may be please given to DS SNEA concerned. SNEA MH will pursue for consideration of all such genuine requests.

·        We have also discussed about other requests given by individuals for change of SSA and refusal of on DGM LA promotions and GM HR & Admn Mumbai has assured to given consideration of all such requests which will be received by 05/12/2020.

·        All the AGMs/DEs given DGM responsibility under LA arrangements if have any grievances on posting including change of SSA, refusal of LA etc may be please sent by email on or latest by 05/12/2020 and its copy may be please given to DS SNEA concerned.

Letter <<<>>>


3 Dec 20: AGM Staff Mumbai issued single and out of turn request transfer of JTO Electrical and this request transfer was first issued at Company cost and same is later modified as Own Cost. Letter <<<>>> Corrigendum <<<>>>

·        There are many other request pending from JTOs/SDEs in Electrical wing and CGMT MH has always assured to give consideration to all these request transfers from Electrical wing.

·        But instead of giving consideration to all such request transfers this single order has been issued creating unrest among other executives of Electrical wing.

·        SNEA MH has received many calls/queries on such single transfer order and not considering their requests and we have updated them about the issue. It is good that with this single request transfer, the process of consideration of request transfers in Electrical wing is started and in similar manner justice needs to be given to all similarly placed executives.

·        SNEA MH will take up matter with CGMT MH for considering request of all JTOs in Electrical wing at par with this order with equal justice to all.
