17 MAY 16: Congratulations!!!! Comrades, our unity and commitment leading to resolution of the long pending issues: In view of the Relay Hunger Strike from tomorrow onwards, CMD and DIR(HR) called SNEA for detailed discussion on various HR issues as decided in the meeting held on 13.05.2016. From Assn side GS, President, AGS and Jt Sec attended the meeting. GM (Pers), GM(Estt), GM(SR), Addl GM(Pers) and DGM(Estt) was present in the meeting.

Ø  At the outset CMD told that he had taken it very seriously that a very responsible Assn like SNEA gone for agitation at a very crucial period. This year is very crucial for BSNL as 3rd PRC is fully depending on this years performance. All the issues will be resolved in a time bound manner, CMD assured.

Ø  GS and President explained the compulsion of the Assn to serve notice as no decision is taken on Joint Committee recommendations even after 7 months even though all the three Assns given a unanimous recommendation, thousands of JTOs, JAOs, SDEs, AOs officiated as SDE, AO, DE, CAO in DoT and BSNL before 19.02.2010 are facing recovery and reduction of pay due to wrong clarifications, on 30% superannuation the assurances are not followed, notional pay for Civil/Elect etc not considered so far etc giving an impression that management is not serious on resolving the issues. Even though the time schedule given after the meeting with DIR(HR) is reasonable, Assn want concrete action plan how the issues are going to be resolved within the target dates:

Ø  After that discussions held on various agenda items:

1. Implementation of Joint Committee recommendations on:

a)      Standard pay scales of E2, E3 replacing E1A and E2A:  Assn strongly pleaded for its early implementation as 3rd PRC is fast approaching. Already there is a unanimous opinion in the Khan Committee on the issue and hence there is no justification for delaying the matter further. The five assured promotions should not be disturbed. The cascading effect also to be considered from E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7, Assn demanded. On this CMD informed that there is an additional financial implication of more than 200 Cores for this alone and DoT may not agree for change of all the pay scales. After detailed discussion, CMD assured that first, Khan Committee recommendation will be implemented by replacing E1A to E2 and E2A to E3 by making necessary changes in the EPP to protect the five TB promotions and it will not be linked with cascading factor. It will be taken to MC and approved latest by 31st May, as assured. CMD categorically assured that it is the responsibility of BSNL management to get it approved from DoT and he personally taken the responsibility for that. On our repeated pleading for cascading effect from E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7, CMD assured that it will be considered after this.

b)     Time Bound Functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy: GM(Pers) explained the status of the issue. Assn demanded that as a onetime measure, Executives on higher pay scales may be promoted to the next higher grade without DPC by taking VC, as DPCs are already done for TBP. Further pleaded that the DPCs should be decentralised, promotion shall be based on recruitment year wise giving relaxation to the qualifying service for the Executives recruited/promoted in the same vacancy year, uniform date of promotion, change of designation by giving designation followed in BSNL CO like Asst Manager for JTO, Dy Manager for SDE, Manager for Sr SDE, Asst General Manager for DE etc. Assn expressed its concern over the delay as a simple issue like standard pay scales taken so much time, so management is not serious on this issue also. On this CMD directed GM(Pers) to stick to the target date. GM(Pers) assured CMD, DIR(HR) and Assn that the draft will be ready by the target date of 31st August.

c)      Uniform TBP between 4 to 5 years instead of 4 to 6 years w.e.f 01.10.2000: Assn strongly protested as this issue was not even reflected in the letter on action plan on various issues. GM(Pers) explained that it is linked with CPSU and will be processed after that and hence not shown as a separate item. Assn explained that this can be settled earlier itself and it has to be implemented w.e.f. 01.10.2000. Since CPSU related work is already started, finally it was assured that it will be processed immediately after that. Necessary correction in the action plan also will be made.

2.     Officiating pay fixation, pay protection – withdrawal of wrong clarifications issued on 30.05.2007 and 19.02.2010: Assn explained the issue in detail. Management side maintained that a committee examined the matter and found that the orders/clarifications are correct. Now after submission of further data, mgt agreed that it will be re-examined based on the additional inputs given by the Assn like MC Note, Hon SC orders, FRSR etc. Assn demanded that since the clarifications are wrong and it is against the provisions of EPP order dated 18.01.2007 and FRSR, it has to be withdrawn immediately. Pay protection is provided under FRSR and as long as FRSR is followed in BSNL, it cannot take a contradictory stand. Thousands of SDEs, AOs, DEs and CAOs are facing pay reduction and recovery by the wrong clarification. After thorough discussion, management finally agreed to withdraw both the clarifications dated 30.05.2007 (sl no.10) and 19.02.2010(sl no.4 and 9). This is a great breakthrough and will give relief to more than 15,000 SDEs, AOs, DEs and CAOs who are facing pay reduction and recovery by the wrong clarification. By this, this issue will be fully settled.

3.     30% Superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited Employees: As assured in the meeting with DIR(HR), the contribution will be worked out after the recalculation of the medical expenditure.

4.     Membership verification among Executives Associations by addressing the issues raised. Restoration of trade union facilities and deduction of subscription from Salary till membership verification is conducted: Mgt side explained that salary deduction cannot be implemented as it will influence the verification. Then Assn demanded that the verification has to be done as notified earlier and there is no stay on the verification as claimed by the mgt. On this CMD and DIR(HR) responded very positively and directed concerned officers to take all necessary actions to complete the verification at the earliest in a time bound manner. Finally, management decided to conduct the membership verification due to our struggle. This will be another breakthrough.

5.     Promotions in different wings from JTO to SDE, JAO to AO, SDE to DE/EE, AAO to CAO and DE to DGM: DIR(HR) informed that all efforts are being taken to resolve the court cases. A senior lawyer from Hon Supreme Court is deputed to Ernakulam for final arguments. Similarly other cases also will be dealt.

6.     Notional pay of E1A and E2A for Civil/Elect wings w.e.f 01.10.2000: Assn explained the Vinai Shahi Committee report, BSNL Board decision etc. Earlier it was linked with JAO pay scales but now it is settled for JAO in isolation. But only for Civil/Elect wings Executives, E1A and E2A pay scales are not implemented. BSNL policy is a) uniform promotion policy and b) uniform pay scales for all the equivalent cadres in different wings. To have uniform pay scales of E1A and E2A for all the JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs it has to be implemented for Civil/Elect etc wings also w.e.f 01.10.2000. After discussion CMD directed concerned officers to settle the issue favourably ensuring uniform pay scales for all the Executives w.e.f 01.10.2000. This issue was pending for years together and after the intervention of CMD and DIR(HR), it is getting settled. This is another major breakthrough in todays meeting.

7.     First Time Bound Promotion after 4 years from Lateral JTO and Sr SDE grades as done in the case of AAO and Sr AO grades: It is decided to examine the case as per earlier discussion. Assn clearly told that it will not tolerate any discrimination. Management assured that there will not be any discrimination and the whole issue will be examined in totality as per the time schedule.

There are no words to congratulate all the Executives, especially our SNEA comrades who stood solidly behind the issues and struggled shoulder to shoulder. Hats off to them. Congratulations to all the CSs, SSA/Branch secretaries and office bearers and activists at different level for their effective leadership to make the struggle a grand success.

Our struggle will ensure that the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.1.2007, i.e. 2007, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015 and future recruits getting E2 scale starting with Rs 20600. This will set the stage for implementation of 3rd PRC. When the others tried their best to derail the issue by raising irrelevant things, our struggle saved the issue.

Comrades, we had only deferred the agitation programme, not withdrawn it knowing very well that lot of negative forces are working against the resolution of the issues. We should be very careful about their tactics. We have to keep all the organizational preparedness to respond in a short notice if there is any deviation from the commitment and target dates.


17 MAY 16: Relay Hunger Strike on 18th, 19th and 20th may 2016 at Circle/SSA HQs: Make extensive preparations to make the Relay Hunger Strike successful. Our demand of standard pay scales of E2, E3 with five promotions (with or without cascading effect) for the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 should settle before constitution of 3rd PRC. Settlement of CPSU cadre Hierarchy, 1st TBP, 30% superannuation benefit with minimum 6% as promised, Officiating pay protection, Notional pay of E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.10.2000 for Civil/Elect etc etc are fully depends upon the success of our struggle. All Executives are requested to join this movement for the upliftment of the cadres.

16 MAY 16: In continuation of strategic decision to replace all ITS officers from the posts of HR/Admn, now BSNL CO issued orders for replacing GM HR/Admn Mumbai Maharashtra Circle.  Letter <<<>>>

·        This order is issued two & half month advance as this order will be effective only after 31/07/2016. 

·        Shri. Kumar Manoj, GM L&B Mumbai & CE Civil is posted as GM HR/Admn Mumbai replacing Shri. Sandeep K. Agrawal present GM HR/Admn Mumbai

·        As per this order Shri. Sandeep K. Agrawal GM HR/Admn Mumbai is posted as GM NWO CFA Mumbai in place of Shri. Pravin Malhotra PGM NWP CFA Mumbai on his superannuation retirement.

·        Shri. Sandeep K. Agrawal will be third GM level officer transferred from post of GM HR/Admn Mumbai before completion of his term/tenure and posted as GM NWO CFA Mumbai as earlier also Shri. B. K. Agrawal, Shri. Pravin Malhotra, were transferred and posted from GM HR/Admn Mumbai to GM NWO CFA Mumbai. This time also this bad tradition has been maintained by BSNL Corporate office and continued with its causal approach while posting senior officers in Maharashtra Circle.

·        Shri. Sandeep K. Agarwal was posted as GM HR/Admn Mumbai just few months back and now he has taken over grip of the HR issues of Maharashtra Circle and all off sudden he is transferred from this important post related to HR issues of majority of comrades in Maharashtra Circle. 

·        BSNL Corporate office is always playing politics while posting CGMs and GM HR/Admn Mumbai and internal enmities are always given priority over the priorities of BSNL 

·        It was quiet possible to post Shri. Kumar Manoj as GM HR/Admn Mumbai before posting of Shri. Sandeep Agrawal as policy of replacing ITS officers from GM HR/Admn posts was started before this action and many of the ITS officers working at HR/Admn including DGM/GM Pers BSNL CO were replaced long back

·        It was also possible that the orders would have been issued just before its implementation date and under what circumstances these orders are issued two and half month also smells something wrong as such advance order may disturb present smooth working system. 

·        But while replacing GM HR/Admn for Maharashtra Circle it was delayed for unknown reasons even though one change has been effected in between and thus one more officers is humiliated by transferring him from the post of GM HR/ Admn Mumbai while he also was doing his best on resolution of HR issues of Maharashtra Circle.

·        Let us hope that at least after this posting BSNL Corporate office stops politics/ Gimmicks in posting of GM HR/Admn Mumbai & humiliation of officers on post GM HR/Admn Mumbai and mainly maintain their dignity & respect and give free hand and ample time to understand the HR issues to the proper depth and to resolve the issues to its root cause.

14 MAY 16:  Meeting with CMD, BSNL on 13.05.2016: CMD BSNL had a brief meeting with GSs of SNEA, AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA. Even though we are not interested for a combined meeting, after continues request, GS attended the meeting. CMD sought the opinion of the Assns on two issues:

1.     Implementation of Khan Committee recommendation on standard pay scales of E2, E3: First AIBSNLEA told their view that as per the recommendation; E1A should be replaced by E2 and E2A by E3. Anomalies if any should be settled later by changes in the EPP after implementation.

·        SNEA reiterated its stand that the committee recommendation is to be implemented in totality from the beginning. It can be implemented in two ways: a) with cascading effect: E2(JTO), E3(SDE), E4(Sr SDE), E5(DE), E6(DGM) and E7(SG DGM), in that case no change is required in EPP which was our original demand or b) by simply replacing E1A with E2 and E2A with E3. i.e. E2(JTO), E3(SDE), E3(Sr SDE), E4(DE), E5(DGM), E6(SG DGM) with necessary changes in EPP as recommended by Khan committee to protect five promotions and anomalies.

·        As per Khan Committee, one Executive has to work in E3 (pre-revised E2A) scale in SDE grade for 5 years and in Sr SDE grade for 5 years in the same E3 (pre-revised E3) scale already approved by DoT. In other words, on Khan Committee implementation also, one Executive has to work in E3 scale for 10 years, 5 years as SDE and 5 years as Sr SDE.

·        Since mgmt is not ready to implement the first option with cascading effect, the second option is acceptable to us to resolve the issue provided management is ensuring promotion and fixation benefit from SDE to Sr SDE in the same E3 scale after 5 years, GS told.

·        As per Khan Committee recommendation, one executive has to work 5 years as SDE in E3 scale and 5 years as Sr SDE in E3 scale. If Khan Committee felt that an Executive has to work only 5 years in E3 scale, it would not have recommended E2A to E3 scale again, since E3 scale was already approved by DoT in 2009 itself as replacement scale for pre-revised E3 for the Sr SDE/Sr AO. Only E1A to E2 was sufficient. Both Assns should have demanded only E1A to E2. Then why simply creating confusion now, we could not understand. Is it a calculated move to derail its implementation?

2.     Management Trainee Recruitment: There is no requirement of Extl MT as abundant talent is available within the company. Thousands of highly talented and experienced Executives are available within BSNL. MT (Intl) is a fast track promotion for the meritorious candidates, another fast track promotion like LDCE. The rect should be completed at the earliest as the candidates already lost one precious year due to the delay. The number can be increased from 150 to 300, About 11,000 Executives applied for the MT (Intl) rect, GS told. More than the employees, it is the requirement of the company to build a top management from among the potential talent within BSNL as ITS officers are leaving BSNL and there will be total vacuum at GM/CGM level. GS told CMD that SNEA and AIBSNLEA fought for eligibility to all the Executives of BSNL for appearing in the MT (Intl) exam by launching agitation and even fought legal battle at Ernakulum and PCAT New Delhi and now they had taken a U Turn on the issue. SNEA always stood on principles and continue with that.

         Since there is no further improvement on the issues, all efforts are to be made to make the Relay Hunger Strike from 18-20, May 2016 a grand success.

13 MAY 16: AGM Staff Mumbai issued DGM posting orders on incumbent joining MH Circle on request transfer. Letter <<<>>>

·         CGMT Maharashtra Circle is highly pleased to post excess DGMs for Pune SSA and with this posting total 13 DGMs are posted to Pune SSA against 12 sanctioned posts of DGMs.

·         Now even the small unit like RTCC Pune which was headed by DE for years together that to be with looking After DE is now headed by Add GM level Officer.

·         It is disgusting to know that in Pune SSA that when two Add GMs are given Charge of GMs one Add GM is given Charge of DE may be due fact that there is shortage of GMs and DEs in Pune SSA.

·         This may be due to the disputes among certain officers in Pune SSA and their approach to CGMT MH Circle, but it is loss of the high level BSNL manpower.

·        In recent past Director HR has written special letter for proper utilization of DGM level officers, but it seems that these instructions of Director HR are not applicable to CGMT MH and Maharashtra Circle.

·         When there is shortage of DGMs in many of SSAs, how CGMT MH and his office is pleased to post more than sanctioned post DGMs to Pune needs special understanding and depth of the issue.

·         We fear that if manpower is not utilised properly then it will take Pune SSA to more negative performance as the salary & office expenses of these higher level officers will be additional burden for Pune SSA.

·         Let us hope with this over pleased actions of CGMT MH Circle, the Pune SSA also grow with over faster rate with proper utilisation of manpower with uniform application of ideas of responsibility at particular time and it is need of time otherwise it will wastage of the pleasant approach of CGMT MH Circle towards Pune SSA.

Some of comrades attended Dharana during full day and extended total support. Though management has shown some concern and taken some initiatives for resolution of the issues raised by SNEA, the comrades have expressed that we should not keep in such trap of management of giving assurances and not keeping t and have shown total commitment for the continuation of Dharana and intensify t further till the demands are given reasonable conclusion by the management and not just assurances as happened earlier.

After the Dharana started at BSNLCO, the discussion started at 11.10 am and continued for one and half hours. GS, CHQ President and AGS participated. During discussions, Assn clearly told management that sufficient discussions were already held on the issues but no concrete decision has come. In the name of consensus, issues are dragging. Already there is a consensus on some of the issues and Joint Committee recommendations are made.

DIR (HR) informed that on implementation of standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A, Administrative decision will be taken today itself to implement the recommendations as it is. Assn once again made its stand very clear that E2, E3 scales should be implemented immediately from 01.01.2007 replacing E1A and E2A without disturbing the 5 time bound promotions already Executives having as recommended by the Khan Committee.  

Further discussions held on CPSU Hierarchy, 1st TBP, Offtg pay protection, 30% superannuation, Ist TBP from JTO (LA) and Sr SDE after 4 years, Notional pay scale of E1A and E2A for JTO/SDE(C/E) etc w.e.f 01.10.2000. On these issues, management is trying to settle them in a time bound manner and the time schedule will be intimated to all, DIR (HR) informed.

Comrades, we had seen lot of assurances in the past also. This time we have to ensure that management is taking concrete decisions to settle the issues. So, make extensive preparations for the next programme from 18th to 20th May, 2016. Campaigning may be done by making special GBs at SSA level.

  10  MAY 16: AGM Staff Mumbai issued “pick and choose” transfer orders in respect of only two SDEs by keeping aside the entire waiting list and their own transfer policy guidelines.   Letter <<<>>>

·        It is really painful to know that Circle management seems to adopt old practices of pick and choose transfers.

·        In strange and may be with malafide intention transfer order of only two SDEs has been issued by over-ruling the waiting list of request transfers in SDE cadre.

·        It is understood that this pick and choose method has been adopted as per directions of CGMT MH Circle and reasons for such special actions are hidden but it is really attack on the equal treatment policy being adopted for long time to all the executives.

·        When the file for all the Non Tenure SSAs request transfers both in JTO & SDE cadres is pending for last one month with different dramatic reasons , transfer order of only these two SDEs , one from Akola to Nagpur and one from Yavatmal to Amravati is issued without posting substitute.

·        Here it is matter direct violations is seen as some of the officers who have joined Akola before the officer under transfer are not given consideration, officers on top of the waiting list for Nagpur & Amravati SSA are kept aside and these pick and choose cases are given consideration.

·        It seems that Circle management is not worried about the issues of masses and unrest thereof like good number of executives held up at the Tenure stations for want of relievers, non-implementation of hundreds of transfer orders issued over the years and management seems to be interested in only such pick and choose cases by keeping aside the ethics being followed by transparent management, which has created unrest among the executives and it smells something wrong at this level.

·         SNEA MH has registered protest against such pick & choose and mainly biased approach of Circle management and naturally the concerned officers were unable to answer the real reasons for such pick and choose approach.

·         Anyhow, to cover up these pick & choose transfers now the file for considering all pending requests from Non tenure stations is processed and is now available with DGM HR Mumbai.

·         Let us hope that all the pending request transfers of JTOs/SDEs from Non tenure stations are given speed in similar manner and Circle management shows concern of equal treatment for all executives and makes it clear that henceforth there will not be any scope for such biased practices and all will be given equal treatment and at least similar placed cases are given consideration on such consideration of cases of special interest of some officers in Circle management.

·        In important and very positive step by Circle management, all these JTOs are allotted in their home SSA and most probably their posting after completion of field training will be done in same SSA.

·        It is important that all these Offg JTOs have struggled lot and till last date of joining the JTO Phase I training they were misguided by giving new ideas against prevailing guidelines, modified JTO RR and were under fear of transfer out of SSA and SNEA Maharashtra has cleared all the doubts by elaborating facts.

·        With their positive approach, now the dream of these TTAs to become Regular JTO is being fulfilled after prolonged period.

·        After completion of field training, all will be posted as Regular JTO and will be freed from the chain of every six month reversion and then Officiating promotion. 

·        To avoid any further completion after completion of field training and even becoming Regular JTO, SNEA MH is on job to arrange for JTO Phase II training to all these JTOs as early as possible. l 

·        SNEA MH congratulates all these comrades for successful completion of JTO Phase I training & firmly moving towards last step of field training for becoming Regular JTOs.

·         We appeal all other left out Offg JTO who are now revered as TTA, to understand the reality in becoming Regular JTO and if they wish then submit the willingness for JTO Phase –I training with justified reasons for not attending JTO Phase I training at earlier stage and move towards becoming Regular JTO.

Accordingly, all SNEA comrades are requested to come forward and respond to the occasion and liberally contribute to Maharashtra Chief Minister Draught Relief Fund with minimum of Rs. 1000.00 for this genuine cause. Though this is minimum amount, There is no limit for maximum donation individuals feeling/showing more social responsibility may contribute more amount as they wish and write the amount in consent letter as per their wish to contribute as everyone contributing to this genuine cause will get Income Tax relief under 80 CC and entire amount will be deducted from total taxable Income Tax of Year 2016-17.

All such willing executives may submit their consent as per format attached to their DS SNEA and DS will prepare consolidated list for his District and will hand over the list to ACS concerned.  On the basis of this consent, the amount desired by individual will be deducted from the May 2016 salary of the concerned executive and entire amount through the cheque issued by BSNL Maharashtra Circle will be handed over to Hon.
