B. P. Tambat AGM Staff Mumbai, Shri. V. J. Bhandirge AD Staff Mumbai Shri. M. M. Apte, AGM Estt Mumbai Shri. V. K. Dethe AD ERP Mumbai, Mrs. Veena Naik, JTO HRD Mumbai for prompt action in completing all official formalities related to this order and issuing orders in record time of three days. 


29 MAY 18:  AGM Staff Mumbai endorsed the BSNL CO promotion orders from JTO to SDE under LDCE Quota. Letter <<<>>>

·        As per this letter, the declarations are to be submitted by these individual candidates directly to AGM Staff Mumbai with copy to concerned SSA.

·        Further VCs of these candidates are to be updated by SSAs in ERP if not updated earlier for e-VC with certificate thereof so that posting orders of these JTOs can be issued at the earliest.

·        Total ninety JTOs have been declared successful in Maharashtra Circle out of which majority are active members and leaders of SNEA.

·        SNEA MH congratulates all these JTOs on their long awaited SDE promotions and conveys all of them best wishes for new assignment as SDE.

·        Though there is unrest among all JTOs about delayed SDE promotions, these LDCE passed candidates got posting order after wait of about two years and till the JTOs under SCF quota who are seniors and waiting for their SDE promotions for last 15-20 years have not got posting order in view of court case which will be decided on 30/05/2018.

·        Though it was quiet possible to issue both the LDCE & SCF quota together as demanded by majority of the executives and mainly by SNEA, as we represent majority of executives in BSNL and SNEA has to take care of all and not that of particular group as being done by some associations, due to certain issues on part of management the LDCE orders are issued just some days advance and this has created mass unrest among SCF quota JTO and some individuals have starting expressing feelings against each other, which is not at all correct and good for future and unity of executives in BSNL. 

·        It is most important that though LDCE orders are issued early, the seniority of the SCF JTOs will be maintained as it is and there is no base in fear factor created by some groups about loss of seniority and same is clearly visible from the undertaking from the concerned LDCE passed JTOs.

·        It was quiet possible for management to maintain equilibrium, but it seems that just for gap of 3-4 working days, scope is given for unrest /disputes among executives both LDCE as well SCF category and mass unrest has been seen among the executives of BSNL about such actions of the management.

·        SNEA MH appeals all comrades not to come in trap of groupisim as LDCE or SCF created by certain groups and some officers in the management and be united with firm assurance that SNEA will strongly pursue for issuing promotion orders of SCF quota JTO also and everybody will get justice and it is just time of some days.

·        Further SNEA MH is keenly pursuing for early issuing of posting orders of these LDCE passed JTO as about all declaration has reached to Circle office Mumbai and hopefully posting orders will be issued by today.

It was responded by loud claps by all the officers present there.

23 MAY 18:  Finally, AGM Staff Mumbai issued orders for fresh DGM LA against refusals and orders for consideration of request for change of SSA in DGM LA.  Fresh DGM LA Order <<<>>>   Order Change of SSA <<<>>>

·        After prolonged wait of about one month period, finally the orders for fresh DGM LA has been issued to fill up vacant posts against the refusals submitted by concerned DEs on genuine ground. 

·        Earlier, after issuing DGM/DE LA post, management has taken stand that there is no provision for acceptance of refusals in LA arrangements though same is available only in Adhoc/regular promotions.

·        Matter was then continuously pursued by SNEA MH and we have different rounds of discussions with CGMT MH,  GM HR/Admn Mumbai and all concerned officers and we have brought to the notice of management that certain clauses of the transfer policy are contradicting with the stand of Circle management Not to Accept the Refusals” in LA arrangements.  

·        After through discussions in last meeting by SNEA MH with CGMT MH on 03/05/2017, it was decided to review matter of acceptance of refusals on these clauses of transfer policy which are reproduced here. 

1.            The officers with age of 57 years who are barred for out of SSA transfers as per transfer policy.

2.            The officers who have joined any particular SSA on request transfer and that to be when on own cost request transfers then they are not transferred out of SSA before completion of two years.

3.            The officers who have joined any particular SSA after completion of tenure are not disturbed by out of SSA transfers till completion of three years as they are having immunity from transfer in view of completion of tenure.

4.            The request on medical grounds as defined in the transfer policy.

5.            Consideration of request for change of SSA by some individuals where vacancy exits.

·        Accordingly, review has been taken by GM HR/Admn Mumbai and his team and proposal was finalised to some extent and same was also rejected by CGMT as it was not as per the guidelines.

·        Then again the second proposal was prepared and this time Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai personally spoke to all the DEs eligible for the DGM LA and called for verbal willingness and processed in file.

·        As such, the orders have been issued for fresh DGM LA and accordingly 20 fresh officers are given consideration against 17 refusal as in this revised posting Sindhudurg, Gadchiroli, Parbhani, Satara & Amravati SSAs have got two DGMs, small SSAs like Dhule, Jalgaon & Beed got three DGMs, Ahmednagar & Aurangabad SSA got four DGMs and Pune SSA got 18 DGMs.  

·        Now all the officers eligible for DGM LA and not fitting in above criteria have been given consideration and no DE eligible for DGM LA is left in Maharashtra Circle.

·        Though it was assured by CGMT MH,  GM HR/Admn Mumbai for strict adherence to above criteria, till name of Com. S.V. Pawar DE Mumbai who is senior to all other promoted in this revised list is missing and on query to Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Mumbai, he could not give any reason for such missing name and pointed fingers to GM HR/Admn Mumbai.

·        Further, Com. L.S. Basinge DE Sangli who has joined Sangli SSA at Own Cost transfer just before one month has been transferred to Sindhudurg against the criteria defined and when one post of DGM is vacant in Sangli SSA.

·        Com. S.S. Mambrukhane, DE Solapur has submitted willingness for Kalyan SSA as he has experience of working in Kalyan SSA, but other unwilling DEs are posted to Kalyan SSA and request of Com Mumbrakhane has not given consideration and he is posted to Ratnagiri.

·        Except these three issues, SNEA MH has not received any grievances from DS/members concerned in this revised/fresh DGM LA orders.

·        The orders for acceptance of the refusals has not been issued as it is understood that last moment CGMT MH has taken stand to first let these new officers join and then the orders for acceptance of refusal as per above criteria will be issued. SNEA MH will take up matter for early orders for acceptance of the refusal.

·        It is fact that about all refusal in DGM LA are accepted or their request for change of SSA has been given consideration.

·        The SSA like Gadchiroli & Sindhudurg SSA where two DGM level officers are posted without any GM level Officer, the senior DGM will be Head of SSA and junior will carry other DGM level activities.

·        No doubt that for SSAs like Beed, Dhule, Gadchiroli, Sindhudurg, Ahmednagar etc where more DGMs are posted, there will be issue of arrangement of cabin and vehicles for office establishment and hopefully it will be taken care locally.

·        The stand of management that refusal in LA arrangement will not be accepted except extreme medical issues has been fully agreed by SNEA and we also feel that one has to come forward and contribute with more responsibility with higher scale in TBP.

·        Now, only issue remains that in next spell of DGM LA, some of the officers who have refused the DGM LA in last spell will be eligible and in such cases juniors may be reverted but in this case also such juniors who will be reverted will be given opportunity to join back to their working SSA as there is provision for same in LA arrangements.

·        Thus with detail feedback from all DS & COBs of SNEA, finally with continuous persuasion  by SNEA MH, the matter of DGM LA has been given consideration to better extent and at the same time the requirement of DGMs in different SSAs have been taken care.

·        This will be relief to all the DEs who were having genuine difficulties due to age factor and personal issues and also the SSAs like Sindhudurg, Akola, Wardha, Ratnagiri etc which were not having SSA Heads, will get SSA Heads with this LA arrangements.

·        Though time taken for review of this changes of about 17 officers is much more, it was due to fact that Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH was busy with HOCC Meeting at Delhi for three days, then with 5G Summit held at Hotel Leela Mumbai for two days wherein Hon MoSC has attended the meeting and finally one day visit of CMD BSNL to Circle office Mumbai and then more time was taken by Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai to have personal talk with all officers and to understand these 20 requests and process it in the file as per expectations of CGMT MH.

·        SNEA MH conveys thanks to Shri Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH, Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR/Admn Mumbai, Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai, Shri. B P Tambat AGM Staff Mumbai and Shri. V. J. Bhandirge AD Staff Mumbai for review of matter of acceptance of refusal and for giving consideration to the acceptance of refusal well within Transfer policy guidelines thereby giving relief to all affected DEs and also for meeting requirement of DGMs in SSAs having shortage of DGMs with revised arrangements.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to all DS/COBs/DOBs for their timely feedback on this issue and giving unconditional support to take decision on this matter to get issues settled. We also convey sincere thanks to all the comrades who have kept faith on SNEA even though salary of about all executives under transfer has been stopped due to ERP relieving which has given us time to pursue all such genuine cases. We also convey our regret to the affected comrades for some delay in settlement of their grievances.

·        Now, similar exercise will be carried out for acceptance of refusals in DE LA on the well-defined guidelines in transfer policy and matter of review of DE LA will also be given after the ongoing Circle Management meeting.

·        The officers who are fitting in above criteria may wait with risk of salary which may not be drawn for this month also and one has to take decision on to wait or join at place of posting as per his/her requirement and depth of grievances he/she is having.

·        SNEA MH is also pursuing for some request for change of SSA on genuine grounds, with some mutual changes in JTO/SDE transfer as per information received from DS SNEA concerned and for retention on educational grounds i.e. son/daughter studying in 10th or 12th Standard this year, let us hope that these issues also will be settled after settlement of issues of DE LA arrangements. Let us hope for the best.

23 MAY 18:  OSD to Director CFA calls for meeting of vendors to review status of poor operations of Wi-Fi HotSpot operation. Letter <<<>>>

·        This new “White Elephant” of BSNL in which BSNL has invested money in Crores of rupees and revenue generated is being in hundreds of rupees, which is really matter of concern.

·        This project is directly affecting to growth of BSNL mainly due to poor quality of equipment’s supplied, poor range from the Wi-Fi HotSpot and poor planning of locations of Hotspots wherein no chance of generation revenue is possible.

·        By accessing the real facts about operation of this project, it is crystal clear that till serious action is taken against culprits, there are no chances of improvement of services and realisation of BSNL‘s money invested in this project and God only knows when BSNL will start earning revenue from this “White Elephant” project.

·        Unfortunately, BSNL officers have not taken any lesson from such useless project wherein vendors get their amount but BSNL never get even invested cost and such projects are main reason for losses of thousands of Crores to BSNL.

·        Let us hope this meeting, will have deep thinking on viability of this project and BSNL customers start getting range from these Wi-Fi HotSpots otherwise expenditure on such meetings will be also another Burdon on BSNL.

·        Award I <<<>>> Award II <<<>>> Award III <<<>>> Award IV <<<>>> All <<<>>>

·        Shri Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai expressed that it was result of collective efforts by his team and gave credit to all the team members of Finance wing who have contributed for such outstanding works in very active manner. He was optimistic for such performance during this year also as he has very good & dedicated team of account personals.

·        At the start of the discussions, Shri Vivek Mahavar expressed his displeasure over the way in which issue of Com. Mahadevan CAO LA was highlighted by SNEA MH on its website. He expressed that personal discussions also are quoted in this news and he is not happy with that. We have made clear that there was nothing personal and we have written what are the facts and there is much unrest among the executives due to such pick and choose retention on name of ERP works when entire work is being carried out by four JAOs working there.  We have made it clear that when other comrades including female comrades are compelled to join new place of posting mercilessly then there is no need of any favour to any individual and whatever policy is adopted should be equally adopted for all. GM Fin Mumbai informed that he will take care as per his wish and not under pressure and we have expressed our displeasure on such undue favouritism and informed that f discrepancies are not settled, SNEA MH will continue to protest by all means.

·        The details of discussions on other issues is as follows. 

1.     Status of Proposal for Group Term Insurance for Executives submitted by SNEA MH: SNEA has brought to the notice of GM Fin Mumbai that SNEA MH has submitted proposal in January 2018 and even after four months passed TI and Benevolent Fund and due to delay in finalisation of proposal, the family members of some executives who passed during intervention period have not got benefits of this scheme with aim to extend supporting hand during crises period. GM Fin Mumbai informed that he personally believes that this will not be helpful to all executives and young executives will have to pay more premiums as compared to old ones. We have informed him that there are slabs as per the age of the executives opting for it and age s of executives is being taken care while calculating premium of the GTI scheme. In MP Circle same has been implemented and many of the executives have opted for it. GM Fin Mumbai further informed that social security of family members is very important and added that SNEA MH has submitted good proposal for Social security of the family members of the executives in difficult period and he is happy to see that SNEA MH has good step by submitting such proposal. He informed that he has already received quotation from HDFC, LIC, ICICI and a few other insurance firms for GTI and soon the most suitable proposal will be finalized and made public with an option to enroll for the GTI Scheme and depending on the total number of executives participating in it, further negotiations will be held with concern insurance companies for getting most reasonable and minimum quotes of the premium. SNEA MH informed that the existing GTI proposal of LIC for MP Circle can be referred to implement it in MH Circle and GM Fin responded that same proposal cannot be implemented and he is of the opinion to go with proposal of any company and not limited to LIC. WE have cleared that we also do not have any intention to go only with LIC; our only suggestion was it is PSU and being PSU executives we will have to give preference of other PSU proposal other than the private company.  GM Fin Mumbai informed that he will try to get best proposal i.e. maximum insurance amount with minimum premium.  We requested for early action in this regards and GM Fin Mumbai assured to look into it and give final shape to this proposal at the earliest.

2.     Status of proposal submitted by SNEA MH on Benevolent fund: When we have asked for status of benevolent Fund, GM Fin Mumbai expressed that he is not aware about it. We have elaborated him that SNEA MH has submitted the proposal of Benevolent Fund also along with the GTI proposal and both the proposals are part of same letter. On query by GM Fin Mumbai about method of operation of Benevolent Fund, we have updated him about is operation and how it will be functional in BSNL through trust of BSNL officers and representatives of the recognized and support associations. GM Fin responded that he is not in favour of any such trust and why should his office take risk on operation of funds. We have elaborated him that BSNL is making deductions from salary of employees for ‘n’ number of reasons and there is no harm in deduction Rs. 100 per member of this fund in case of unfortunate death of any member who has opted for benevolent fund. We also added that Rs. 100 is not big amount as helping hand to the family members in case of the death of executives who s member of this fund. Also many of the executives and even employees are supporting the affected family during period of crises by not only hundred rupees but some time in thousands of rupees as their social responsibilities. But till GM Fin Mumbai was reluctant on operation of Benevolent Fund and expressed that he will not allow this proposal and will not take more burdon of the works of trust and money distribution. Then we have pointed him out that he and his Finance office has to do nothing and entire work will be carried out by Admn section and only role of finance will be deduction of Rs 100 from salary of the members of this fund in case of unfortunate death of the member of the fund and whatever amount will be collected with such deductions same is to be transferred to the account of family member of concerned executive and all such details will be intimated n sanction memo issued by Admn section and as deductions are to be done through ERP there is nothing like burdon for his account wing officers as feared by him but it will be one more opportunity to be participant for social service to its own executives n period of crises. Then GM Fin Mumbai asked where this fund will be applicable only for the executives or it will be applicable to non-executives also. We have informed him that SNEA MH has submitted proposal for executives as we are representing executives and it will be good gesture on management that similar fund is operated for Non-Executives also but same decision may be taken in consultation with Circle Secretaries of the Unions in Maharashtra Circles and accordingly either separate Benevolent Fund may be operated or both executives and non-executives can be member of same Benevolent Fund. After elaborate discussions also the reluctance on part of GM Fin Mumbai continued and he informed that f he has nothing to do it with benevolent fund then matter may be taken with GM HR/Admn Mumbai and his office will take care of deductions as per the sanction letters from the Admn section.

3.     Consideration of request transfer of account wing: SNEA MH informed GM Fin that request transfers of executives in Account wing are pending and there is much unrest among comrades when the transfers of Telecom wing are take care in due time. It was decided in formal meeting by CGMT MH that all request transfers will be given consideration before 31/03/2018 but same is not adhered in Account wing. GM Fin informed that he will like to discuss it with DGM FC Mumbai and after discussions request will be given consideration. Then we have brought to his notice that FC section has submitted proposal on basis of the request received by the individual officers but GM Fin Mumbai informed that though proposal has been submitted, he needs to go through it for better functioning of all the units and mainly equalization of shortage of all SSAs. He also added that the proposal could not be finalized as many of the requests are for transfer to SSAs where already excess Account Personals are working and hence he has proposal not to consider any request to such SSAs having excess executives, but matter is yet to be finalized. He added that he is aware of the urgency of considering request transfers in view of start of academic year, but he does not want to disturb any officers during on-going Audit. Once the Audit is completed then he will look into request transfers of account Personals. We requested him that orders may be issued now and same can be implemented after completion of Audit and if we wait for completion of audit, then it may go behind July/August 2018 and it will create more difficulties to the executives waiting for transfers as well as substitutes posted for it. GM Fin Mumbai informed that the on-going Audit will be completed within fortnight and most probably by end of May 2018 and hence all request transfers will be taken care immediately after that and matter will not be delayed for long time.

4.     Dual Approach in CAO LA Arrangements retention and transfer: SNEA MH expressed huge displeasure for not following the standard policy by FC Section and the stand of dual approach where on one side some officers are being given undue favour by keeping them at same location in substantive grade while others are transferred and this is not fare practices. GM Fin informed that he is aware of the aberration and matter has been already discussed and corrective action will be taken accordingly but time cannot be fixed for that. We informed that we do not have any hesitation if all CAO LA transfers are cancelled, but we have objection that someone is favoured and some are compelled for transfers. We also cleared that in uniform policy f he cancels all CAO LA Orders; we do not have any objection. GM Fin Mumbai assured to review the CAO LA transfers and positive action on this matter after closure of the Accounts.

5.     Request of Com Ramteke, Com Mrs. Tayade in CAO LA transfers: SNEA MH informed that Com Ramteke AO Nagpur has submitted request for change of SSA from Buldhana to Wardha as CAO posted at Wardha is retained at Nagpur and post of CAO Wardha is vacant. Further Com Tayade AO Nashik has submitted refusal on CAO LA transfer to Dhule as she has already completed Tenure out of Maharashtra and has recently joined Nashik SSA and she also has genuine family problems. Both the request can be considered on the genuine grounds given by both the officers. GM Fin Mumbai informed that he will ask DGM FC to check the status of all such requests and its possibility of review and after completion of Audit decision will be taken on all the refusal request of CAO LA.

6.     Shortage of Account wing Executives in different SSAs:  We have brought to the notice of GM Fin about acute shortage of Account wing executives in some of SSAs. We conveyed thanks for giving sufficient AOs for Gadchiroli SSA, but some more JAOs are required. We also narrated that similar situation exists in some other SSAs and many of the SSAs have excess Account personal. GM Fin Mumbai informed that he has already planned for equalization of Account wing officers after closure of accounts it will be surely taken care.  He further informed that soon about 135 DR JAO will join in Maharashtra Circle as the document verification process has already started and on while their posting on completion of training, his office will take care of shortage of JAOs in different SSAs and also in case of urgent requirement some reshuffling will also  be issued to meet shortages.

7.     Publication of SSA wise executive strength showing excess /Shortage: SNEA MH informed that though it has been agreed that there are excess and shortage of executives exact data has not been published by FC section and t is not clear which SSAs have excess Account personals and which have really shortage. In absence of this data posting is being done randomly and many of the executives do not have idea about their position for transfers. We requested GM Fin Mumbai that before considering transfer request transfers and equalization of executives from Excess to shortage, staff strength of all SSAs should be published along with list of officers who are n zone of transfer as excess officers along with the list of SSAs having vacancies to meet shortage. This will bring awareness among the Account Personals and may opt for suitable station having vacancy and may plan to request for transfer to break their tenure at present SSA. GM Fin Mumbai agreed to the suggestion and said that this will be done so that transparency is maintained and all can check their position and further this process will also help in getting the data of FC section corrected.

8.     Preparation of Circle Gradation list of all JAOs in MH Circle: SNEA MH informed that it has been more than 2 years since the last DR JAO batch has joined and their probation period has also ended. But till no action has been taken for preparation of Circle gradation list of JAOs in Maharashtra Circle and requested to prepare such CGL for all JAOs working in Maharashtra Circle.  GM Fin Mumbai informed that once Audit process is completed and all request transfers are taken care, the work of Circle Gradation list will also be completed and CGKL will be published shortly.

9.     Issuing minutes of formal meeting: SNEA MH informed that the minutes of the formal meeting held in Dec 2017 are much delayed and it's almost time for the next formal meeting. GM Fin informed that he will be getting the minutes finalized and issued at the earliest

10.            Relieving of Com. Deshpande CAO Ahmednagar as his one month deputation is over and he is compelled to continue since last three months: SNEA MH brought to the notice of GM Fin Mumbai about injustice to Com Deshpande by hrs prolonged retention at Ahmednagar when deputation was issued just for one month. We narrated that Com Deshpande has joined Ahmednagar on deputation as per his direction without any hesitation as it was for one month period and by now more than three months have been passed, but he is not relieved. He is having genuine problems as his spouse also is working at Kolhapur and is facing hardship in maintain office as well as family responsibilities.  Since the deputation period is already over FC Section needs to issue reliving orders at the earliest or GMT Ahmednagar may be asked to relieve Com Deshpande to Kolhapur. GM Fin Mumbai informed Com Deshpande was favoured by issuing orders and relieving thereof when there was shortage at Ahmednagar and hence he was given deputation for one month, but has been continued as he is doing very good job and account closure also is going on. He added that already orders have been issued for posting of DGM Fin Ahmednagar & CAO for Ahmednagar and after completion of Audit he will see that DGM Fin posted to Ahmednagar will be relieved from Jalgaon to join Ahmednagar and then Com Deshpande will be surely relieved.

11.            Posting of CAOs in Kalyan SSA: We have brought to the notice of GM Fin Mumbai that there is no CAO working in Kalyan SSA and some of CAO LA have also requested for change of SSA to Kalyan and may be given consideration. GM Fin Mumbai informed that he is aware about the issue, and assured that in review of CAO LA, if possible same will be taken care.

But since last three months no action has been taken on this letter. GM Fin informed that he has not received any complaints from BBNW Pune. We have informed him that same is rightly available in FC section and once file also was processed but no decision has been taken yet and BBNW unit continue to suffer. GM Fin Mumbai informed that he is not aware of such letter but assured to look into this BBNW issue while considering other request transfers.

18 MAY 18:  AGM Estt Mumbai writes SSA Heads for updating 15 point VC data in ERP and issue certificate for updating data so that VC can be submitted on line.  Letter <<<>>>

·        This VC data for JTO to SDE DPC has been called on many occasions over the period of last 4-5 years but till there is much confusion among the officers as the data is not properly maintained in Establishment section and officers concerned are transferred and relieved without handing over charge properly.

·        Now no records are found in Establishment section and whatever records are available, Shri. B.A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai himself has doubt about the authenticity of the records of his office and hence it took four days to endorse this letter by Circle Office.

·        Hence though list of the JTOs eligible for this JTO to SDE DPC under SCF as well as LDCE Quota is ready with Estt section, same is not published and uncertainty remains on this issue.

·        Preparation of Circle Gradation list is responsibility of Estt Cell as per data to be given by Staff section, but here it is observed that there is no proper communication between Estt section and Staff section under DGM HR Mumbai and hence uncertainty continues.

·        SNEA MH has finally taken matter with different officers from JTO Estt Mumbai to GM HR/Admn Mumbai and after continuous persuasion and elaborating facts to all the officers, this letter has been issued, but here also confusion has been created.

·        Normally, as per the guidelines attached, the list of officer for whom VCs are required is submitted by Circle Esst/Staff section to Vigilance section and then Vigilance section will grant VC and send its details  to  Circle Esst/Staff section and same is forwarded to concerned units and in this case to Pers cell BSNL CO.

·        But unfortunately as per this letter by Estt section, the Staff/Estt section have diverted responsibility directly to Vigilance cell and it is reported to SSA to convey it to Vigilance cell along with Certificate, which is not correct.

·        Now, all the officers in Staff/Admn sections of concerned SSAs/Units needs to take review at their own  and access the data of  JTOs working in their SSA/Units as fresh and consolidate it.

·        Accordingly, the gradation particulars of JTOs recruited up to 2005 under OC/SC Category and JTOs recruited up to 2007 under ST category is called for second All India Eligibility list and it is to be sent by 25/05/2018.

·        The current VC of all JTOs eligible under SCF quota as above and VC as on 21/05/2016 for JTOs who are declared successful under LDCE Quota against vacancy year 2010-11 and unfilled vacancies up to 2008-09 are to  be sent by 21/01/2018.

·        After updating VC data in ERP in respect of all these JTOs, Certificate and list of the JTOs eligible for this DPC as above, needs to be forwarded to AGM Estt Mumbai who in turn will forwards it to Vigilance section and VCs can be sent by on line method as desired by Personal Cell BSNL CO by 21/05/2018.

·        As already time of five days out of total eight days has been wasted in clearing doubts of DGM HR Mumbai, all the officers in Staff/Admn Section of concerned SSAs/units are requested to take action by today itself and see that certificate and list of eligible JTOs under SCF as well LDCE quota is issued today itself.  

·        For any issue related to updation of data in ERP and certificate by SSA Heads to please contact/write to Com. Sachin Sarode, ACS East SNEA MH Mob 9423591903 and Com. M. M. Apte AGM Estt Mumbai Mob 9423986155, landline 022-26467576 on

 16 MAY 18:  Meeting with Shri. Ashok Purohit, CGM WTR Mumbai: SNEA delegation led by Com. N. B. Teni, CWC Member SNEA MH, Com. I. A. Ansari DS SNEA WTR Mumbai and Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH had meeting with Shri. Ashok Purohit, CGM WTR Mumbai on 27/04/2018 in his chamber at Prabhadevi, Dadar West Mumbai. This meeting was also attended by Shri.  A. K. Kanaujia, PGMM, WTR Mumbai, Shri. N. S. Rokade, Jt.GM M WTR Mumbai and Shri. A. S. Waichol, DGM Admin WTR Mumbai.

·        At the start of meeting Com. I.A Ansari, DS SNEA WTR conveyed thanks to CGM WTR and his entre HR team for giving consideration of all requests of JTOs/SDEs who have joined WTR Circle and also for relieving of all JTOs under rule 8 transfers. He also conveyed that due to good gesture by CGM WTR, majority of the issues are settled, but there is need of some actions on the part of the management for uplifting moral of executives working at WTR. He added that though request of incoming JTOs/SDEs are given consideration the request of executives within WTR needs to be given consideration.

·        In reciprocation, Shri. Ashok Purohit,CGM WTR conveyed that WTR being small unit and having very good working environment , his office is able to take care of the HR issues and till any issues are left same are always welcome. He conveyed thanks to Maharashtra Circle management for giving some JTO/SDE to WTR and emphasised that there is need of much more work force of executives and non-executives in WTR. He conveyed special thanks to SNEA MH for taking up issue of shortage of executives in WTR and also requested to pursue matter for additional posting of executives from Telecom and Account wing and Non Executives in WTR different units. He added that many of the SSA Heads are not understanding the requirement of WTR and while posting staff /officers to WTR, the last priority is given to WTR which is not correct.  He assured for total co-operation to SNEA with appeal that members of SNEA also should come forward and with suggestions for better working of WTR. The other details of discussions are as follows.

1.        Shortage of Executives at WTR units at Goa, Sindhudurg &Wardha: SNEA delegation has brought to the notice of CGM WTR that there is acute shortage of DE/SDE in Goa, SDE in Sindhudurg as only one JTO working at WTR Sindhudurg, SDE at Wardha as no single JTO/SDE s working for WTR Wardha because no officer is posted against transfers/VRS from these units. We also brought to notice that due to heavy road widening activities at these places, the works of fault restoration is badly delayed and mainly the other executives are overloaded as they have to look after works of these officers as well as their own works CGM WTR informed that he is aware about such shortage and not only these places, but many other places there is shortage in WTR. He added that his office has already taken up matter with CGMT MH and SNEA may also pursue for additional posting of JTOs/SDEs to WTR. SNEA requested that it will be better that the location wise vacancy  throughout WTR Maharashtra Circle  is published by WTR and accordingly the executives from Maharashtra Circle can opt for that particular vacant post and Maharashtra Circle will consider such request for WTR, but said officer may be posted by WTR to the choice place given by said officer. CGM WTR informed that same is readily available and directed DGM Admn to give its copy and assured that all such officers joining will be given choice posting as far as possible except Mumbai as with recent transfers WTR has got sufficient officers at Mumbai.

2.        Data on Executive of WTR Circle as called by CGMT MH Maharashtra Circle: We have informed that the matter of posting additional JTO/SDE to WTR has been taken up by SNEA MH with GM HR/Admn Mumbai and CGMT MH, but it was informed that even after transfer of about 30 officers from MH Circle to WTR, details of postings have not been conveyed by WTR to Maharashtra Circle. We further informed that GM HR/Admn Mumbai has called for stay particulars of the officers working at WTR in view of the facts that many of the officers from WTR are working at same post/location for period of more than 20 years while the officers from MH Circle are transferred on long stay transfer less than 10 years. It was insisted by Maharashtra Circle le that for meeting shortage of executives at certain places within WTR  Maharashtra Circle, management of WTR Circle should carry out the long stay transfers within WTR MH and every time additional officers can be posted from MH Circle to WTR on name of shortage. After issuing orders for rearrangement of officers on long stay transfers, then the additional officers can be posted from MH to WTR on the requests. CGM WTR informed that he has not received any such letter from Maharashtra Circle and if received same will be definitely complied including sending information on stay particulars of all executives. CGM WTR informed that WTR being short unit, he is not of the opinion of any long stay transfers, but transfers will be issued only for considering request and substitute thereof. He added that there is acute shortage of officers in WTR and till additional JTO/SDEs/DEs are posted to WTR, works cannot be managed with such within WTR transfers. We have informed that the copy of letter will be sent to WTR again after its collection from Maharashtra Circle and if it is compiled to some extent, then SNEA MH will also further pursue for additional posting of executives for WTR.

3.        Consideration of Requests within WTR: SNEA brought to notice of CGMT MH that there are some request pending for consideration within WTR and some request transfers issued are not implemented and hence there is unrest among the executives. It was also informed that there is no procedure to know whereabouts about application/request of any officer for transfer.  CGM WTR informed that there are only few requests within WTR and assured that very shortly all such request also will be given consideration. 

4.        Posting of New JTOs in field units for consideration of request transfers: SNEA informed that as per guidelines all the new JTOs are to be posted to field units, but in WTR these guidelines are not followed. The JTOs who are working at remote places are compelled to work at said places, but two newly recruited GATE JTOs are posted at Mumbai against these guidelines and when there is shortage of JTOs in filed units and some request are pending for change of SSA /location within WTR. Posting of new JTOs will not serve purpose of intention behind guidelines issued by BSNL Corporate to post these officers at filed units to get to death experience of the works and have adequate knowledge of multitasking works. CGM WTR informed that his office has received only two new JTOs and same are posted for C-PON work which is important work, but assured that in future these guidelines will be taken care if new JTOs are posted to WTR Circle.

5.        Transfer of the officers who have joined WTR from MH Circle due to long stay in the particular SSA and opted for WTR Circle: SNEA brought to the notice of CGM WTR that due to long stay transfer at particular SSA, some of officers have taken shelter of WTR and they are posted in same SSA where he/she is longest stayed officer, and others who did not opted for WTR are being transferred on name of long stay and unfortunately many such cases are from popular locations like Pune, Nagpur, Nashik and Kalyan and this discrimination and intelligent idea to get shelter in WTR has created unrest among other executives. There is no objection if any officer continues to work at any unpopular station and WTR management gives it due consideration, but such prolonged working at popular stations and get escape from long stay transfers only few executives with injustice to others not acceptable to SNEA. As such, there is need of review of transfers of all such officers under long stay and the guidelines on the subject need to be followed equally for all. CGM WTR agreed that such corrective action will be taken after review of the data and requested SNEA to given names of such officers working in WTR.

6.        Call for long stay data by WTR and fear of mass transfers within WTR: SNEA brought to the notice of management that in recent past Circle Office has called for data of stay particulars and choice of posting from all officers and this has created fear among the officers. CGM WTR informed that though data has been called, no such mass rotational transfers will be issued within WTR and only request transfers will be considered and there is no need of any such fear among executives but requested that some more officers are required at some locations of WTR to full fill minimum required executives’ requirement. Then we have conveyed that in such cases the long stay officer may be transferred and SNEA has no issue, if it is done in uniform policy manner and with minimum disturbance.   CGM WTR informed that there is no need to worry and he and his office will take care of all such issues.

7.        Filling Vacant post of DEs/AGMs under LA arrangements: SNEA brought to the notice of CGM WTR that there are many post of DE/AGM vacant and there is no initiative for filling up such posts, but additional burden is passed on other DEs. CGM WTR informed that action will be taken to fill up all such vacant post of AGMs/DEs but it may not be possible to fill up all posts due to shortage of executives in WTR, but assured to take care by fresh DE LA orders as per the seniority list.

8.        Rearrangements of officers within Mumbai as per the request of individual officers: SNEA discussed some individual request which can be settled with rearrangements among the existing officers as some of officer have requested for it. After detail discussions, CGM WTR assured to take care of all such issues and directed DS SNEA WTR to submit such detail proposal and it will be taken care. But he insisted that SNEA should not pursue for consideration of officers working at technical post even though said officer is requesting for it. Such request will also be taken care, but with making suitable arrangements and he do not want to use technically expert hands in administrative works. 

9.        Consideration of Transfer to tenure stations: Com. Ansari DS SNEA WTR suggested that some of officers are transferred to tenure stations and some have escaped from such transfers by opting to nearby SSA and now situation that the officers who have already worked at tenure stations are again compelled to join Tenure stations, which is not fare. As such , it is required that while posting to tenure stations, the officer who have completed tenure earlier should not be posted to tenure station and officers who have never served at tenure stations should be posted to tenure stations to meet shortage of as substitute to consider the request from tenure station. After detail discussions, PGMM Mumbai agreed to take care of concern expressed by SNEA.

10.   Pay anomaly among officiating period of certain officers: SNEA brought to the notice of CGM WTR about long pending issue of Pay anomaly due to non-consideration of request by officers and how even after the matter was approved and fixation memo were issued but it was kept on hold at last moment by giving family reason. Com.  N. B.  Teni, CWC Member specially added that recently BSNL CO also has clarified matter and Hon Court also has issued directives to BSNL/DoT and hence there is need to settle the unrest among the affected executives. CGM WTR assured to look into this issue as fresh but directed to submit fresh request/proposal with all supporting documents and matter will be decided on merits and guidelines thereof.

11.   Requirement of Account Officers at WTR: CGM WTR informed that there is need of Account Office in WTR Mumbai and his office has sent request but no AO is posted and many works including personal claims are pending. We informed him that there are many JAOs/AOs who are willing to work at WTR Mumbai and Maharashtra Circle has ample AOs/JAOs in Mumbai and many of them are willing to work at WTR Mumbai. SNEA will pursue for consideration of request of such willing JAO/AO for posting to WTR Mumbai, but request needs to be sent by WTR Circle.

12.   Harassment of executives and staff by SDE NMS Prabhadevi and need of corrective action thereof: SNEA brought to the notice of CGM WTR about rude behaviour of Com. Pradeep Khairkar, SDE NMS Prabhadevi Dadar and elaborated how his actions have already troubled other officers and staff in this office. Some officers from management tried to safeguard him by saying that he is doing good work, but we have made it clear that he is doing good work it does not mean that he is given free hand to trouble others and there is need of immediate control of his actions being in Government Organisation. We have also brought to notice of CGM WTR that Com. Pradeep Khairkar is staying away from family and may be in need of transfer to Pune to stay with his family and we have no issue if his request is given consideration, but he cannot be allowed to trouble executives and staff and management should not support such actions. CGM WTR taken serous note of concern shown by SNEA and assured to take care of the issue raised by SNEA and to have immediate corrective action.

In conclusion of the meeting, Shri. Ashok Purohit, CGM WTR appealed that all officers should focus on works and faults needs to be attended in time bound manner and suggestion from SNEA to improve working of WTR is always welcome.

 Com. A. I. Ansari, DS SNEA WTR conveyed thanks to CGM WTR and all other officers present in the meeting for their good gesture, very fruitful discussions  and for giving due consideration to issues of WTR comrades raised by SNEA WTR.

Thus the discussions which started with lunch by WTR management were held in very co-cordial manner and healthy atmosphere. All the issues raised by SNEA MH were given patience hearing with assurance to take care of all HR issues of executives in WTR.

14 MAY 18:  By quoting old letters from May 2017, AGM Pers II BSNL Corporate Office calls for gradation particulars and VCs for promotion to SDE Grade under SCF as well as LDCE quota.  Letter <<<>>>

·        The gradation particulars of JTOs recruited up to 2005 under OC/SC Category and JTOs recruited up to 2007 under ST category is called for second All India Eligibility list and it is to be sent by 25/05/2018.

·        The current VC of all JTOs eligible under SCF quota as above and VC as on 21/05/2016 for JTOs who are declared successful under LDCE Quota against vacancy year 2010-11 and unfilled vacancies up to 2008-09 are to  be sent by 21/01/2018.

·        Regarding VCs, till old tradition of sending VCs by hard copy is followed in MH Circle and by this way VCs cannot be sent by 21/05/2018 and it may take months together.

·        SNEA MH has already taken up matter for taking VCs from ERP in formal meeting held with CGMT MH and he has directed to take VCs only from ERP and no need to send VCs through hard copies with signature of controlling officers.

·        But till same procedure is continued because many of the SSA Heads have not submitted certificate to AGM Establishment certifying that entire administrative data of the officers in concerned SSA has been updated in the ERP.

·        Unfortunately, these certificates are not issued by SSA Heads when said data has been uploaded correctly to better extent and same is used for getting hard copy from ERP and sending it to Circle office with signature of all officers which are not at all required after implementation of ERP, but same is unnecessarily continued as the data updation certificate is not issued by SSA Heads for correctness of data which is an obligatory official formality as required by Vigilance cell.

·        The updation of data is continuous process and if SSA Heads issue certificate for updation of data as on today, then also VCs can be taken by online method and there is no need of any sending VCs n hard copy.

·        As such all DS/COBs and activist are requested to immediately take up matter with concerned Staff/Admn section of SSA and mainly with SSA Head for issuing such certificate on updation of data in ERP and sending it to AGM Establishment Mumbai at the earliest so that VCs of all comrades eligible for SDE DPC under SCF as well as LDCE quota which is in large numbers can be sent well within time. 

·        For any issue related to updation of data in ERP and certificate thereof by SSA Heads to start procedure of “online” VCs for all DPCs, concerned officers, members, activists and leaders may contact/write to Com. Sachin Sarode, ACS East SNEA MH Mob 9423591903 and Com. M. M. Apte AGM Estt Mumbai Mob 9423986155 ,landline 022-26467576 on and it may be ensured that these certificates are issued by end of this week.

·        SNEA MH will again take up matter for taking VCs through ERP for this DPC as well as all other DPCs and we will stop the wastage of manpower and precious time of hundreds of officers in taking printout from ERP, signing on each case and then sending it through DAK and will also save time taken through this overall process and Vigilance/Estt section of Circle Office will extract report directly from ERP and forward its soft copy to Personal BSNL CO in this case or to other units asking VC n any future case.


14 MAY 18:  AGM Staff Mumbai issued Own Cost Deputation order in DGM Cadre from Mumbai to Kalyan for 15 days or till regular incumbent joins.  Letter <<<>>>

·        This order is issued even after joining of officer at Mumbai on his transfer from Kalyan to Mumbai and when he is left with few months of his superannuation retirement.

·        This step has been taken as none of DGM posted in Kalyan SSA has joined Kalyan SSA and all the three DGMs posted in Kalyan SSA are relieved through ERP and joined at new place of posting.

·        Practically for last one month there is no single DGM in Kalyan SSA and such poor conditions even the request for change of station by JTOs/SDEs joined in Kalyan SSA are not given consideration as GMT Kalyan is unable to take decision in absence of DGM when all these requests are adjustable among these comrades.

·        Let us hope that with joining of at least one DGM back to earlier SSA, such burning issues will be resolved.

10 MAY 18:  Jt GM Pers BSNL CO issued orders for modification, deletion and addition n SDE RR 2002. Letter <<<>>>

·        These changes are applicable from retrospective effect i.e. from 28/08/2015.

·        The seniority among Seniority cum Fitness quota and Competitive Quota will be fixed in 2:1 ratio in particular vacancy year regardless of Year of Appointment or date of joining.

·        JTOs who will complete three years regular service as on 1st July of the vacancy year will be eligible for SDE LDCE for that particular year. 

·        Year wise vacancy calculations will be done as per DoPT guidelines issued/to be issued time to time.

·        Promotion from JTO to SDE will be done by BSNL Corporate office on basis of All India Eligibility list and the vacancies will be calculated as on 1st July of that particular Year.

·        Now Management committee will decide the syllabus for SDE LDCE Examination and earlier it was decided by BSNL Board.

·        Regular SDEs also will continue to be eligible for enhancement of his/her position in the SDE seniority list against vacancies for which he/she is eligible and LDCE was not conducted for that particular year.

·        These points were missing/wrongly added in SDE RR 2002 which has delayed overall process of LDCE calling for different court cases and hence this modification has been issued.

·        Due to such ambiguity, about 1500 LDCE passed JTOs are waiting for their posting even though LDCE was held in Year 2015 and results are declared in Year 2016 and till today posting has not been issued for these LDCE passed SDEs and vacancies under SCF Quota are not filled after Year 2011 and about 12000 SDE post are vacant throughout BSNL. Thus neither Seniority cum Fitness nor Completive Quota post of SDEs are filled for years together and there is mass unrest among the JTOs which is known as backbone cadre of BSNL.   


 10 MAY 18:  Jt GM Arch BSNL CO issued merger of re-organisation of the majority of the establishment of Architecture wing in BSNL. Letter <<<>>>

·        As per the re-organisation orders wherein three offices of Chief Architects at Chandigarh, Ahmedabad & Hyderabad are merged respectively with Shimla, Jaipur, Bengaluru with upgradation of the senor Architects as Chief Architects.

·        The establishment of four offices of the Senior Architects at Ambala, Bhopal, Patna & Bhubaneswar along with one office of Senior Architects at Guwahati will be closed from 30/06/2018.

·        Accordingly the revised sanction strength of each office with area of jurisdiction of the offices in published.  Letter <<<>>>

·        This revised justification is issued by adding strength of merged/closed offices with concerned units but practically these many officers are not working as many of them are transferred to Telecom wing and many posts are vacant due to retirement/VRS.

·        Due to reduction of Architectural works, many of officers from Architecture wing are already working on deputation/transfer to Telecom wing and in Architecture  units like Bhopal all five JTOs and one SDE are on deputation to Telecom wing and hence there was practically no Architecture wing in existence since VRS of then Sr Architect Bhopal since 2014.

·        Hence this order for closure of some of Architectural wing offices are just official formalities and with this order the Architecture establishments with less manpower and work are either merged or permanently closed which will save expenditure on such establishments.

·        In the Mumbai office even though there are sanctioned post of Chief Architect -01, Senior Architect 02, Architect 04, Dy Architect 02, SDE/AE 04 & JTOs 22, practically there are only Chief Architect -01, Senior Architect 00, Architect 01, Dy Architect 01, SDE/AE 00 & JTOs 05 and only one Architect working in Mumbai is also under transfer since last one year to Delhi, but not yet relieved.

·        Due to reduction of workload of Architecture wing, Maharashtra Circle has already taken decision before 5-6 years and accordingly as on today one Senior Architect and five JTOs are transferred from Architecture wing and are posted in Telecom wing. The Chief Architecture is also redesigned as GM Co-ordination and given additional reasonability of PG & Social media works.

·        All these officers are giving their best to BSNL with such change of work pattern from Architecture to Telecom and have proved their excellence while working in Telecom wing also.

·        When some of JTOs Arch were transferred to Telecom wing and were working happily, unfortunately efforts were made to call back them to Architecture wing by disturbing their locations and  SNEA MH has taken up this matter and these JTOs are now working at place/unit of their choice.

·        Thus practically in Mumbai Architecture office, one Senior Architect in LA arrangements, one Architect and five JTOs i.e. total seven officers are working purely in Architecture wing and for such small unit of seven officers, the post of Chief Architecture and full establishment thereof is not at all justified.

·        In last formal meeting SNEA MH has raised issue of proper utilisation of talent available in Architecture wing and CGMT MH has assured for same.

·        Let us hope that with such reorganisation, in coming days the JTOs/SDEs in Architecture wing who are without any promotions for last 20-25 years and even do not have any scope of any further promotion are practically merged with Civil/Telecom wing and let us hope that these JTOs/SDEs Arch also get minimum level of motivation at least by one promotion in his/her life.


9 MAY 18:  Jt GM Pers II BSNL CO issued orders for transfer posting of GM level officers working in Maharashtra Circle and order of one officer is cancelled and another officer is transferred. Letter <<<>>>

·        As per this order, the transfer order of Shri. Amit Shrivastav, GM Mobile Nagpur issued just before fortnight has been cancelled and Shri. Nitin Chayande GMT Yavatmal is posted as GMM WTR Nagpur in place of Shri. Shrivastav.

·        In extreme casual approach towards the Yavatmal SSA, Shri. Nitin Chayande, GMT Yavatmal is transferred without posting any substitute and Shri. Amit Shrivastav is retained at Nagpur as GM Mobile Nagpur.

·        With this retention/cancellation of transfer order total three GMs will continue to work as GM Mobile Nagpur viz.  Shri. Amit Shrivastav, Shri. V D Godghate and Mrs Namrata Tiwari against only one sanctioned post of GM Mobile Nagpur.

·        This is how the Personal section of BSNL Corporate Office has very casual approach about working of BSNL and how the individual request of GM level officers are given priority for retention of officers at Popular stations like Nagpur and how deliberately the post of SSA Heads are filled in or kept vacant as per will & wish and mainly need of concerned officer even by crossing limits of sanctioned post and how post of SSA Heads at Yavatmal, Akola, Buldhana, Parbhani, Ratnagiri , Sindhudurg etc are deliberately kept vacant.

·        When there are no proper posting of SSA Heads and post of SSA Heads are kept vacant for years together, we are seeing that some of officers are talking about loss incurred by these SSAs.

·        Such losses are but natural in absence of SSA Head in small SSA and due to posting of excess senior officers at popular SSAs like Pune, Nagpur.

·        It can be seen that earlier in Business area Amravati two GM/PGM level officers posted and in Business Area Sangli two separate GMs are posted for Sangli and Satara SSAs and one GM level officer as SSA Head is compelled to report another GM level officer as BA Head and matter that where junior will report to senior or senior will report to junior was discussed for months together.

·        This gives clear picture of poor HR management at posting of GM level Officers and how BSNL money is being wasted by issuing such unwanted transfer posting of GM level officers by keeping aside priority and requirement of BSNL.

·        Let us pray God that he may give some wisdom to officers responsible for such posting of GM level officers and at least minimum required priority is given for working and requirement of BSNL while posting GM level officers at position of SSA/BA Head.


 10 MAY 18:  Finally after issuing four transfer orders in period of three months in respect of Shri. Rahul Rane, newly promoted GM, Personal cell of BSNL Corporate office finds A & N Circle as suitable place of posting for Shri. Rane. Order IV <<<>>>

·        This is best example how the officers in personal Cell of BSNL Corporate office are not having proper records and how their approach is very causal even while posting of GM level officers which is top most cadre in about more than 90% offices/units of BSNL.

·        On his first, promotion Shri. Rahul Rane was first posted as GMT Jalgaon where already one GM was working. Order I  <<<>>>

·        Then by understanding that already one GM is working at Jalgaon , the said order was cancelled on next day Shri. Rahul Rane was posted as GMT Ahmednagar but here also one another GM was working and hence Ahmednagar order also was cancelled later on 25/01/2018. Order II <<<>>>

·        Then Shri. Rahul Rane was posted as GM NOFN Mumbai and after prolonged wait he has joined in Circle Office Mumbai on 22/04/2018 and has taken over charge of GM NOFN Mumbai. Order III <<<>>>

·        But within 20 days of his taking over charge of GM NOFN Mumbai, Shri. Rahul Rane is again transferred to A&N Circle as per his request and now he will have to join as GM Plg & Admn A&N Circle. He will have to join at new place of posting by relinquishing charge of GM NOFN as no substitute is posted against him as GM NOFN while issuing his transfer to A&N Circle.

·        Only one corrective step has been taken by Personal Cell is that his transfer order from ITPC Pune to NOFN Mumbai will be treated at own Cost. 

·        This poor approach of Personal cell is really matter of concern and nowadays posting of GM level officers seems to given consideration in very casual manner and for no mistake on part of these officers, their image is spoiled.

·        All these four posting orders of single officer Shri. Rahul Rane, GM in period of three months clearly establishes the poor and very casual approach of BSNL Pers cell even n posting of GM level officers.

·        Let us hope, there will be some change in such extreme casual approach, and some minimum level of respect and dignity of GM level officers in maintained in BSNL.



 9 MAY 18:  AGM Pers II BSNL CO calls for volunteers from SDEs for posting in NCNGN, BBNW & NFS Circles. Letter <<<>>>

·        SDEs with age 55 or less as on 31/05/2018 can apply for same.

·        Applications in prescribed format are to be submitted through Proper channel and no direct application will be entertained by Personal Cell, Delhi.

·        Last date for submission of the request through proper channel is 25/05/2018.

·        The posting to these Circles will be for minimum three years and once order is issued orders will not be modified and retention on any grounds will not be granted.

·        The Circles will have to recommend the application in prescribed format without asking for substitute and no substitute will be posted against such transfers to NCNGN, BBNW, and NFS Circle.

·        The vacancy position, location of posting has not been declared where there are chances of posting of willing officers in these Circles and hence chances are there for posting of officer within territory of the concerned Circle, but same cannot be firmly assured and hence one who submits willingness should apply when he/she is able to work at any of the units of NCNGN, BBNW and NFS Circles.

·        Willing SDEs who have already applied for transfer to NCNGN , BBNW and NFS Circles but their request has not been considered till today, should apply a fresh for request transfer to  NCNGN , BBNW and NFS Circle and forward the request through proper channel to AGM Pers Cell BSNL CO New Delhi.

·        One has to submit their willingness with self-analysis and if he/she is ready to work at any of the location of NCNGN, BBNW and NFS Circle.

·        While granting immunity, some of office bearers are retained on the post the Looking After post wherein no vacancy exists, but matter is under review by Circle management.

·        After review, if it is found that vacancy does not exist in LA cadre in SSA in which officer is retained, then these officers will be retained in substantive cadre as DE or SDE as the case may be and if vacancy exist then the said officer will continue in Looking After cadre till his retention period.

 8 MAY 18:  CS SNEA MH writes Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH Circle about  unrest among the Nagpur Comrades against prolonged retention of Mrs. Namrata Tiwari GMT Nagpur and request for immediate review of her posting at Nagpur corrective action thereof Letter <<<>>>

·        Mrs Namrata Tiwari is posted in Nagpur SSA since 1994 and she has longest stay of more than 24 years at Nagpur and when each and every officer from JTO/JAO to PGM are transferred, only Mrs Namrata Tiwari has been retained in Nagpur SSA from her entry as ADET at Nagpur to PGMT Nagpur and she has worked as DE, DGM, GM Nagpur in intervening period. 

·        Due to such extreme long over stay at single SSA Nagpur, she has developed some personal enmities with each and every employee and officer and hence Forum of Unions and Associations of BSNL at Nagpur is demanding for transfer of Mrs. Namrata Tiwari, GMT Nagpur since last one year and many times such grievances has been represented to CGMT MH Circle.

·        Copies of letters by Joint Forum Nagpur. I <<<>>>  II <<<>>>  III <<<>>>

·        Later on request of Joint Forum of Unions and Associations, Circle Secretaries of BSNLEU MH, NFTE BSNL MH, AIGETOA MH & SNEA MH have represented grievances of staff and officers at Nagpur SSA and written letter to CGMT MH and its copies were sent to all concerned officers in Dec 2017. Copy <<<>>>

·        Further, CS BSNLEU MH & CS NFTE BSNL MH has raised this issue unrest among staff and officers in BSNL Nagpur in recent CCM meeting held at Mumbai and CS SNEA MH has raised this issue in pre-formal meeting with GM HR/Admn Mumbai and has also made it one of the important agenda point of formal meeting with CGMT MH Circle.

·        But even after such repeated representations Mrs. Namrata Tiwari is not only retained at Nagpur SSA as GMT Nagpur, but now she is given additional charge of PGM Mobile Nagpur when already two GMs are working against one sanctioned post of GM Mobile Nagpur.

·        When SSA like Akola do not have SSA Head for last one & half month as charge of GMT Akola s not handed over to any DGM/GM since 31/03/2018 due to shortage of officers, the Nagpur SSA has one PGM and one GM against one sanctioned post of GM//PGM and Nagpur Mobile is having three GMs in place of one sanctioned post of GM/PGM.

·        In most surprising manner Mrs Namrata Tiwari is having double reporting to PGMTD Nagpur as well as PGM CM Mumbai/CGMT MH respectively as GMT Nagpur & PGM Mobile Nagpur.

·        Even though BSNL CO has called for options from GM/PGM level officers with stay of four years in SSA and six years in Circle, Mrs. Namrata Tiwari has not submitted any option but continues her efforts for retention at Nagpur SSA by using her influential sources and CGMT MH also has responded to her such unwanted action by giving her additional charge of  PGM Mobile Nagpur when she is still not officially promoted as PGM and when already two GMs are working at one sanctioned post f GM Mobile Nagpur.

·        SNEA MH reminds CGMT MH about the unrest among the Nagpur Comrades due to such prolonged retention of Mrs Namrata Tiwari  as GMT Nagpur and requested CGMT MH Circle:

A.     To immediately withdraw additional charge of PGM Mobile Nagpur given to Mrs Namrata Tiwari and give free hand to Shri. V. D. Godghate, GM Mobile Nagpur to carry out the works related to Mobile mtce and expansion works of Phase VIIII.4 in Vidarbha and Marathwada region

B.       The case of Mrs Namrata Tiwari may please be recommended for out of Maharashtra transfer on basis of long stay of 24 years, on basis of the complaints made by Joint Forum Nagpur and Maharashtra Circle and mainly on suicidal death of one of the contractor in the office of GMT Nagpur when Mrs Namrata Tiwari was SSA Head Nagpur and as FIR has been lodged against her.

C.      Also action may be initiated against Mrs. Namrata Tiwari under CDA or CCA rules as applicable to her for outside influence for managing her retention for period of 24 years in Nagpur SSA and her political influence is clearly visible and it is now an open secret.

D.     We will further request to have separate investigation of allegations made by Joint Forum of Unions and Associations at Nagpur against Mrs. Namrata Tiwari due to her egoistic behaviour because the committee constituted earlier has not submitted report since last nine months and as earlier members of the committee were the officers working under her and due to nature of Mrs Tiwari, none of them will dare to submit report and if report s submitted the committee members will not dare to write facts which are directly evident against their “Boss”.

E.       GM HR/Admn Mumbai may be please directed to act on the complaints submitted by Joint Forum of Unions & Associations of BSNL at Nagpur and Maharashtra Circle and at least such complaints needs to be brought to the notice of Director HR BSNL Board so that Personal cell understand the gravity of the issues due to prolonged stay of Mrs Namrata Tiwari GMT in Nagpur SSA and her name is included in the long stay list of GMs in Maharashtra Circle and she is posted out of Maharashtra Circle thereby giving due respect to transfer policy and CVC guidelines on the subject.

F.        Till the investigation of complaints against Mrs. Namrata Tiwari is not completed she may be sent on leave thereby withdrawing charge of GMT Nagpur as PGMT Nagpur is rightly available to take care of all works at Nagpur

G.     Or of it is not possible to send Mrs. Namrata Tiwari on long leave for fare investigation of complaints against her; she may be transferred out of Maharashtra Circle there by complying CVC guidelines for stay of the GM level officers in any SSA/Circle.



 7 MAY 18:  Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Mumbai conveys an appeal with heading /subject “Delays in Joining” by Circle Management to all officers under out of SSA Transfer on request, substitutes and in LA arrangements to immediately join their respective place of posting. Letter <<<>>>

·        DGM HR Mumbai makes such appeal by giving reference to all 26 letters including 19 transfer orders in respect of JTO, SDE, DE & DGM in Telecom wing who are transferred out of SSA at Own cost request, substitutes to such requests and transfer under DE/AGM/DGM LA orders.

·        This appeal is made as till some of SSA Heads have kept on hold the certain officers even they are relieved from ERP and their salary has been kept on hold and some of officers have not joined new place of posting even after ERP relieving.

·        When officer on transfer is relieved through ERP by Circle Office, it means it is direct relieving by Circle Office thereby withdrawing his/her authorities from working SSA, withdrawing control of present SSA Head & controlling officers from said officer and his/her salary and other activities in ERP are stopped and same will be restored only if he/she joins in new SSA and ERP team either at SSA or Circle do not have authority to restore it.

·        If anyone is to be restored in exceptional case then docket needs to be booked with ERP Team at Corporate office with revised order for cancellation of transfer and then only ERP authorities can be restored and salary of the officer can be drawn. 

·        It is understood that by now many of the officers have joined new place of posting and few are still waiting for some modification, changes as they have requested to Circle Management for same and till same are not given consideration. Also some of SSA Heads have not issued covering orders for ERP relieving.

·        As such appeal by DGM HR Admn Mumbai has certain sense and concerned officers should respond it positively.

·        It is fact that SSA like Akola has no SSA Head since last one month, many of the SSA do not have DGM since transfer/retirement of earlier officer posted and SSAs like Ratnagiri, Goa, Yavatmal, Buldhana, Bhandara Gadchiroli & Wardha have acute shortage of DEs and in some of these SSAs no single DE is available and hence certain officers needs to join these SSAs for smooth functioning of the SSAs and for relieving of tenure completed officers.

·        SNEA MH is pursuing mainly for the acceptance of refusal in DE/DGM  LA orders with GM HR/Admn Mumbai & CGMT MH and with such continuous persuasion, in our last discussions on this subject, CGMT MH has given consent to accept refusals of the officers who are age barred for out of SSA transfer, who have not completed two years stay  after joining present SSA, the officers who have completed Circle/All India Tenure and not completed  four years of stay in SSA where they have joined after completion of tenure, who have genuine medical issues of self or close family member and who have requested for grant of immunity being responsible Office Bearer of association eligible for grant of immunity subject to condition that on consideration of such requests  for change of SSA/Refusal , then next order will be issued against these refusals and then SNEA should not again stress for acceptance of refusal as someone has to join these SSAs having shortage of DGMs/DEs and this chain of refusals should stop and should not be never ending process.

·        As such, SNEA MH also appeals to all such officers under transfers to have critical analysis of the issues and the guidelines on the subject and if they do not have any extreme genuine grounds as defined in transfer policy for retention, cancellation or modification of their transfer, then he/she should immediately respond to this appeal and join at new place of posting without any further delay.

·        SNEA Members who have genuine problems as defined in transfer policy and who have submitted their representation with supporting documents through proper channel with recommendation of SSA Heads, may wait with full patience and by understanding risk that till their grievances are not addressed by Circle Management, he/she will not get salary of even Month of April 2018 and till the month he/she either joins in SSA under transfer or same SSA as per the modified orders by Circle office Mumbai on basis of his/her representation.  

·        DS SNEA concerned may bring awareness among these officers under transfer and who are members of SNEA about all these risks and guidelines on the subject and till they are ready to wait, SNEA MH will continue to pursue such genuine ground request with Circle management after confirmation of names of such officers and genuineness of his/her request received from DS SNEA concerned.


 7 MAY 18:  SDE LO HQ Civil Mumbai issued order nominating “Link Officer” as substitute arrangements of Looking After Arrangements and thereby giving certain responsibilities of Executive Engineer Civil and all SDEs except one are posted in same SSA. Letter <<<>>> Withdrawal of LA arrangement in Civil wing <<<>>>

·        Earlier the in Year 2013,  Looking After arrangements as Temporary and stop gap arrangements and same is being continued for last five years without any benefits to the concerned officers but only change of designation was the benefit.

·        With introduction of Looking After Arrangements as substitute arrangements for Local Officiating Arrangements, the facility of TA/DA, deputation till the local officiating period, full functional powers of officiating cadre were withdrawn and only change of designation was allowed as Stop Gap and purely temporary arrangements and in most disrespectful manner such temporary arrangements was and is being continued for last five years.

·        But now, due to court case on dispute between Diploma and Degree holders in Civil wing, the said Looking After arrangement which was no use for individuals, is also discontinued and next idea of humiliation of executives is introduced and in one more step of extreme humiliation of the officers, the concerned officers will have to carry out said works with new name of “Link Officer” and God knows which senseless officer has given such hopeless name to the substitute to LA arrangement and only benefit of change of designation is also withdrawn.

·        Thus the failure of management and mainly legal cell of BSNL Corporate office to overcome the court cases with firm and determined stand, the entire promotions of executives in cadre of DGM and below are unofficially kept on hold but the promotions of Jt GM and above post are being issues regularly without any fear of such court case and this is biased approach of BSNL management to hide failure of legal cell of BSNL Corporate office.

·        Time has really come to tell BSNL management in clear words that please start the process by restoring promotions and please do not continue to play with promotions of the Middle and lower management officers and please give minimum level of respect as desired by the concerned officer otherwise we will have to refuse in mass all such useless and senseless Looking After arrangement and this disgusting new Link Officer arrangement.

·        If management is given free hand in this way to continue with such humiliating temporary arrangements, the day will not be far away when we will continue of compelled to work as JTO but will have to carry the works of DGMs/GMs.

·        Com. Abhay Kesarkar JS NRU SNEA MH Com. Anil Dubey, DS SNEA Circle Office Mumbai and Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH had meeting with Shri. Kumar Manoj, CE Civil Mumbai in his chamber on 02/05/2018 and also expressed his unhappiness and difficulties in issuing such Linking officer order which is not perfect solution to meet requirement of man power at EE level. He further added that as he is not left with any other option after withdrawal of LA arrangement in Civil wing, he will be issuing such Linked Officer order so that day to day works will be taken care.

·        As such these link officers will have to carry out all responsibilities of SE Civil except passing the bills and without change of present designation SDE.

 4 MAY 18:  Finally, Fact remains that long stay transfer cannot be avoided even after change of Association: AGM Staff Mumbai issued the orders for change of SSA on the long stay transfers on the request of concerned officers.  Order I <<<>>>  Order II <<<>>>

·        These orders are issued as per the change of SSA request of the concerned officers with supporting medical grounds.

·        Earlier, Circle Management has taken stand that no modification /cancellation of transfer orders issued will be issued except question of life and death and now same stand has been changed and the action has been initiated for consideration of request change or change of SSA.

·        As per prevailing policy adopted by staff section,  all such changes are normally issued at Own cost, but here scope for deviation from this practice seems to be given as nothing has been mentioned in this order about cost of transfer.

·        Also, while issuing such change of SSA, with revised procedure adopted by staff section in all other cases, these officers are also relieved through ERP and same procedure is not followed in this case thereby giving scope for back door retention of these officers against the directives of CGMT MH.   

·        SNEA MH has already raised this issue of cost of transfer with concerned officers for issuing corrigendum for clarifying it as Own Cost Transfers & relieve these officers also through ERP or apply similar principal in all such request for change of SSA and nothing should be mentioned about cost of transfer and none of officer should be relieved through ERP on such change of SSA request.

·        It is fact that Com. Mrs M.R. Sakpal and Com. Mr. V. D. Mishra were the active members of SNEA and when the long stay transfer was issued by Circle Management they have approached SNEA for cancellation of their transfers at that time and SNEA has clarified that transfer policy is applicable equally for all and their transfers cannot be cancelled.

·        When SNEA has taken totally transparent stand for equal applicability of long stay for all, these then SNEA members annoyed with stand of SNEA, were then given assurances by leaders of other association that if these members join their association then will be saved from such long stay transfers and unfortunately these comrades are trapped in the such net and with such false assurance have changed their loyalty and membership.

·        Every action has some temporary benefits and here also due to allegations against Circle Management and mainly as management also want to give scope for divide and rule policy among executives have given unofficial stay on implementation of certain transfers and no action was taken on some transfers for period of two years.

·        This was reason for mass unrest against the Circle Management creating disparity among the executives and when many of executives have understood the transfer policy and have joined place of posting, these selected comrades have opted for using certain ideas to get transfer order cancelled, but finally could not succeed.

·        Com. Mrs. Sakpal JTO CO Mumbai was transferred from Mumbai to Kalyan and has changed her membership from SNEA to other association and has made efforts to cancel order , but when matter was pursued by the recognised association SNEA for equal treatment for all executives, finally Circle Management has decided to implement all such orders and all the transfer orders pending were implemented by relieving through ERP and unfortunately only Com. Mrs. Sakpal was not relieved on pick and choose basis.

·        SNEA MH has again taken up matter with Circle management and by understanding fact that she may not get suitable posting in Kalyan SSA or may be last attempt to get order cancelled and retained in Mumbai, after action has been initiated for implementation of order, she has requested for change of SSA from Kalyan to WTR Mumbai and Circle Management was responding positively.

·        But again, SNEA MH has taken up matter of equal treatment for all and demanded that if the request of Com. Mrs Sakpal is being considered for posting at WTR Mumbai then all such similar requests by executives under transfer out of Mumbai should be given consideration and naturally it was not possible for management.

·        We also have made it clear that SNEA MH has no objection  if request of Mrs Sakpal is considered  for transfer to WTR, but in such case her posting should be considered for any unit of WTR other than Mumbai and Kalyan from where and to where Mrs Sakpal was transferred under long stay and such change of SSA/unit  has no meaning in real implementation of long stay transfer and with such strong and continuous persuasion finally management has taken stand not to consider her request for posting to WTR Mumbai and Kalyan and may be at any other places in WTR.

·        Finally, by understanding facts that there is no any other option then the following transfer order, everybody has to undergo transfer if he/she comes under long stay transfer Com. Mrs. Sakpal has opted for Satara SSA and her request has been given consideration by Circle management.

·        Same was case with Com. V D Mishra SDE Amravati and he was active member of SNEA and on his JTO to SDE promotion, he was transferred from Amravati to Wardha and by using some outside influence he managed his transfer back to Amravati within period of one and half year.

·        But to his bad luck, after joining back to Amravati without break of two years at Wardha, he was transferred in Amravati Rural area as was the longest stayed officer at Amravati city and then he has applied for retention up to end of academic session and SNEA Amravati has pursued his request successfully.

·        But before such retention period is over, Com. Mishra has left SNEA and has joined other association and over the night he has taken post of DS which has facility of transfer immunity on transfer.
