20 FEB 20:   Congratulation!!! DGM Pers SM BSNL Corporate Office issued long awaited DE to DGM Adhoc promotions orders for 195 executives.   Letter   <<<>>>     

·        This is first promotion order after VRS 2019 wherein 195 DEs are promoted as DGMs.

·        Many of these promoted Officers have not opted for VRS 2019 even though eligible and hence got chance to become DGM Adhoc.

·        In this order about all officers from Maharashtra Circle are retained in MH Circle and additionally three new DGMs from MP Circle are posted to Maharashtra Circle.

·        It will help in filling many of SSA Head post which are vacant or managed through Local looking after arrangements and very junior and unwilling officers are compelled to work as SSA Head that to be in present very difficult situation after VRS 2019. 

·        When everything on HR platform is negative in BSNL, this order even on Adhoc basis will give some hopes to left out officers that there are till hopes for promotions in BSNL.

·        There are thousands of post of SDEs and DE are vacant in BSNL, but management has not acted on it for years together for whatever may be reason and many officers have opted for VRS due to poor HR approach by BSNL management on promotional front.

·        It is unfortunate that hundreds of Executives eligible for DGM promotions have opted for VRS and immediately after 19 day of their VRS, the promotion orders have been issued wherein name of these officers are naturally missing.

·        Many such affected officers have personally shared their views and blamed management for delaying these promotions for years together on different reasons.

·        Some of them have expressed as its failure of associations also and SNEA MH agrees and respects the sentiments expressed by these affected members.
