27 NOV 15:  CAO FC Mumbai issued waiting list of request transfer within Maharashtra Circle in respect of Finance wing officers. Letter <<<>>>

       After successful persuasion of publication of waiting list of request transfers in Telecom, Electrical, Civil wing, SNEA MH has strongly pursued for publication of waiting list of request transfers in Finance wing. The last such list was published in Sep 2014 and thereafter adamant stand was taken by some officers in FC section and waiting list was deliberately not published for prolonged period creating hundreds of doubts on its working. We have always demanded for transparent working of FC section and now each and every comrade in Finance wing who has requested for transfer is now aware about status of his application for transfer.       

        SNEA MH appreciates this positive step by new HR team of Finance wing MH Circle and let us hope that hence forth the transfer posting of Finance wing officers will also be issued in transparent manner and mainly as per the transfer policy guidelines issued by BSNL.

NCOA represented by Com Baby Thomas, Secretary General/NCOA, Com V K Tomar, President/NCOA, Com K Sebastin, GS/SNEA and Com Shiwani, Treasurer/BHEL Federation.

During discussion, Sec and Addl Sec informed that now Govt is seriously considering the NCOA demand for constitution of the 3rd PRC. PMO already initiated the process and Secretary/DPE is meeting Cabinet Secretary today itself on the matter. Since VII CPC report already submitted, Govt is actively considering the proposal of DPE to constitute the 3rd PRC. Again a reminder was send to Cabinet Secretariat and PMO on 18.11.2015 along with the copy of the notice served by NCOA.

The notice given by NCOA generated tremendous pressure in the Govt and DPE. Sec and Addl Sec appealed NCOA not to go for any protest action at this point of time when Govt is actively considering the demand of NCOA for constitution of 3rd PRC. They assured that Govt will constitute the 3rd PRC without any further delay.

Based on the assurance given by Secretary/DPE, NCOA decided to postpone the protest demonstration arranged on 26.11.2015 by one month.

In the meeting, Secretary/DPE specially mentioned about BSNL performance last year in which it recorded operational profit and in revival path which is good news for all of us and congratulated the GS, all the employees and BSNL management.

26 NOV 15: Meeting with Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL on 23.11.2015: CMD BSNL invited core committee members of the Forum to explain the performance and balance sheet of BSNL for the last financial year, 2014-15. The salient features are:

·         Last year, BSNL recorded operational profit of 672 Crores. Previous year loss was 691 Crores.

·         Top line revenue increased by 4.16%, highest during last 5 years.

·         Even in CFA segment, revenue from services increased more than 1%.

·         As per the new norms for calculation of depreciation applicable from 2014-15 onwards, the depreciation increased considerably and hence the total loss as per balance sheet increased from 6900 Cr to 8600 Cr. If the old depreciation method was used, the loss would have been less by 1500 Cr.

·         On future expansion plan, CMD explained that major MPLS expansion in EB segment is finalized and equipment will be available in 4 to 6 months.

·         In GSM front, add on order is already placed for replacing the Phase I, II and III eqpts and Nortel and Nokia eqpts of Phase IV. For western zone separate tender will be floated. More investment will be made on Wi-Fi hotspots.

CMD appealed to all the employees to work together taking these positive developments and the collective movement stated yielding results. Circles are started lot of marketing initiatives. Bihar Circle is conducting road shows. In TN Circle, Assns and Unions are sponsoring some SSAs having very poor performance and improved a lot.

19 NOV 15:  By quoting Audit Objections &  delay in payments of Security guards,  GM Fin Mumbai writes SSA Heads for curtailment of expenditure on Security guards provided by DGR sponsored agencies and restrict it only for vital installations and trouble prone areas. Letter <<<>>>

           These guidelines needs to taken in true sense by all the officers in filed units and action needs to be taken for the curtailment of expenditure on Security guards wherever possible and the first step is being taken by CE Civil Mumbai by stopping services of a Security Guard engaged as “Status Symbol” only for half part of A wing of Sixth Floor utilized only for office & Secretariat of CGMT MH Circle. This is additional Security provided in addition to no. of Security Guards employed at main gate and entrance of main Building and this wrong procedure was started by one of CGM before 4-5 years and unfortunately in typical “Red Tape” working style same is being followed without any review of its requirement.  If this Security Guard is required and justified then all other Security Guards are fully justified and required and hence there is no use of such formal letter and BSNL Money will be wasted on such unwanted expenditure. Let us hope everybody including office of CGMT MH Circle responds to these instructions positively and in true sense. 


19 NOV 15: Meeting with GM (Pers): GS along with CHQ President and Jt Sec met GM (Pers) and held discussions on the following issues. Jt DGM also present in the meeting.

a.     Finalization of committee meeting on Officiating pay fixation and withdrawal of the clarifications: GS explained that this issue was discussed so many times and the committee is expected to submit the report by 31.08.2015 as per schedule. However the report is not finalized so far and thousands of Executives are affected and facing recovery. Last meeting was held on 15.09.2015 in which GS also explained the case in detail to the Committee. GM informed that the committee will try to meet this week itself, most probably on Friday.

b.    Extending similar benefits to Later JTO and Sr SDE as extended to AAO and Sr AO grades: BSNLCO issued clarifications recently treating AAO and Sr AO as functional promotions and extending the benefit of first TBP under EPP after 4 years. However similar benefits are not extended to similar grades like Lateral JTO and Sr SDE. Earlier the demand for treating Lateral JTO, AAO, Sr SDE and Sr AO was taken up by the associations but it was turned down by quoting the provisions of post based promotions under EPP and hierarchy followed in DoT/BSNL. The decision of management to extend the benefit to AAO and Sr AO grades is a very positive decision but similar benefits are to be extended to the equivalent grades of Lateral JTO and Sr SDE also. Management tried to justify the discrimination but Assn categorically told that it has to be extended to all the similarly placed cadres in all the wings to have uniform promotional avenue.

c.      Expediting the JTO to SDE case at Ernakulam: The necessary information is provided to Kerala Circle and the counter reply will be filed this week. BSNLCO is in touch with the concerned officers for early hearing of the case.

d.    Court cases at Chandigarh restraining promotions with reservation without satisfying the conditions on Nagaraju case—JTO to SDE, JAO to AO, SDE to DE and AO to CAO promotions: GM informed that Attorney General of India (AG) given its opinion and based on the opinion, BSNL will be filing the reply in the Hon CAT shortly. BSNL is trying to vacate the stay on promotions.

e.     DE to DGM (Adhoc) promotions: Since another year ACR is required for the promotions and DPC after November, Assn requested to issue the DGM (Adhoc) promotions at the earliest before this month end. GM (P) assured that management is very keen to issue the promotion orders at the earliest considering the huge vacancies in the field units. DGM (Regular) promotion can be processed only after the final decision from the Hon SC on the expert committee report on 206.

f.       Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy in BSNL: As Pers section is the nodal wing dealing with EPP, RRs, seniority etc, it has to play an important role in its implementation. The promotions which are blocked due to various reasons can be streamlined only by this mechanism, Assn pointed out.

g.    Notional pay fixation of E1A and E2A scale for Civil/Elect etc wings w.e.f. 01.10.2000 to have uniform promotional avenues: The proposal is under examination in Estt wing, GM (P) informed.

h.    Declaring Rajouri, Poonch, Udhampur etc of J&K Circle, 1.5 year tenure instead of 2 year as proposed by the Circle: GM Pers informed that some proposal of changes in the transfer policy is under the consideration of the management. Along with the proposal, this issue also under consideration. Assn requested for a positive decision in this regard. GM (P) assured that the issue will be addressed positively.

i.       Correction in the long standing transfers from ITPC: GS pointed out that the transfer orders issued by BSNLCO were based on the wrong longstanding list submitted by the ITPC. Later on, ITPC corrected the long stay list and accordingly the transfer orders are to be modified. Further the transfer should be made point to point as done for other Circles. After discussion, it was agreed to examine the case based on the revised list.

j.        Counting of MTNL stay for the purpose of counting the stay in MH Circle etc: Assn explained that the clarification issued by the BSNLCO is contrary to the stand taken by BSNL so far and it is against the transfer policy also. It will create problems for other units at Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai etc. Hence it needs to be corrected and Assn already taken up the matter. It is decided to further discuss the issue.

Ø This is good trend started by the Circle administration that the officers are being repatriated back to parent SSA on attending 58 years of service.

Ø Earlier the request of officers transferred on long stay basis were not considered for posting to parent or choice SSA before completion of two years service at posted SSA.

Ø Now all such requests on completion of 58 years age are being considered even though two years minimum service is not completed by the concerned officer and hence all the officers who have reached or will reach 58 years of age as on 31/03/2016 should apply for request transfer to their choice station and only issue is such transfers will be at “Own Cost”

Ø  SNEA MH will pursue for saving time, energy and reducing hardship of such officers who are being transferred when they are having less than two years for completing age of 58 years as on 31/03/2016 and it will be best option if such officers are out of their working SSA and excluded from long stay.

Ø  After all, similarly affected comrades should get benefits of lenient view taken by Circle management and hence all such comrades who have completed or will be completing age of 58 years as on 31/03/2016 regardless of completion of two years service at transferred SSA, are requested to apply for Own Cost request transfer as all these request are being considered by Circle Management .coming out of restrictions of transfer policy

 11 NOV 15:  BSNL CO issued corrigendum to the transfer & posting of Finance wing Officers, wherein it is clarified that  the executives working at Hard/Soft Tenure stations are to be relieved only on completion of their two years tenure including excess leave if any. Letter <<<>>>

ü The letter states that the excess leave taken at hard tenure is to be included in Two years tenure meaning that service rendered practically and leave availed at tenure stations will be added for counting of two years tenure.

ü It further states that two years services is required only at hard/Soft Tenure stations and this condition is not applicable for non tenure stations and anyone can opt back before completion of two years.

ü This is really good news and will be helpful in considering request of executives who are transferred within Maharashtra Circle due to “Hopeless Bhaskar Transfer Policy”.

ü All such willing Finance wing officers may apply for request transfer even before completion of two years break/tenure.

ü This corrigendum is issued only in respect of Finance wing officers and for telecom /Civil/Elect/Arch wing officers, the Pers/BW  Cell may issues similar guidelines and till then all these officers will have to complete two years tenure excluding excess leave availed at tenure station and minimum stay of two years for becoming eligible for request transfer. 

ü  At least the victims of “Hopeless Bhaskar Transfer Policy” within Maharashtra will get some relief & justice with this clarification. Let us hope for the best.

2 NOV 15: Successful Migration to New MKS GSM CUG Plan : :  About 12 lakh GSM customers from all the three old Maha Krushi Sanchar (MKS) CUG Plans i.e. MKS -I, MKS-II & MKS-III are migrated to New & single MKS plan since yesterday i.e. 01/11/2015.  MKS is most popular CUG plan among BSNL customers throughout Maharashtra State. It is important and encouraging that before migrating to new plan with new monthly charges of Rs 141 per month from present Rs 108 &109, many of the existing prepaid customers have opted for annual recharge of Rs 1188 & Rs 1199. It is reported that on last day before migration, there was heavy rush at many of the Cash Counter/CSCs throughout Maharashtra state for this annual recharge and getting services at old rate. It is understood that about Rs. Ten Crores have been deposited by the MKS prepaid customers before migration and it is proof of the mass support of farmers and their dependents to this most popular CUG Plan.

This new MKS plan gives CUG facility for all 12 lakh customers of old three plans & their dependents, some of the earlier MKS customers got double the data download from earlier 200 Mb to 400 Mb, increased talk time on BSNL network and hence this modified plan maintains the popularity and is most demanded CUG Plan. We should happy to note that huge cash has been collected at all the CSCs and all these customers will be attached to BSNL with more loyalty.

Though many of the customers have recharged for annual plan there is much unrest among many of the customers as with new MKS plan there will be reduction in outgoing calls to operators within free limit and reduction in free data download limit etc. Many of the customers have registered their protest by personally visiting CSCs, meeting staff & officers of BSNL and even by calling on helpline numbers and demanded for the restoration of old tariffs and facilities. It is also seen that many of the customers supported the increase in monthly charges but have demanded for restoration of free talk time to private operators and free data download limit.  Some of customers have expressed that amount can be further increased marginally but earlier facilities must be restored. It is also demanded that facility of old rate should be extended to post-paid customers by taking advance charges of one year. Some of customers also approached  political leaders, Hon. MPs and many of the officers from BSNL have received calls from Hon MPs and demanded for restoration of facilities and rates as per earlier plan or at least for some reduction in monthly charges.

EB team BSNL Pune is consolidating all the suggestions/demands received either directly from customers or from the BSNL Staff/Officers and if required corrective action will be taken by BSNL by giving weightage to the convenience to the customers and at the same time giving due consideration to the loss and profit of BSNL by running such highest CUG Plan. As such all the staff and officers are requested to send their feedback, views, suggestions, demands from customers with full justification  by email  directly to Com. Mahanand Gaikwad SDE EB Pune on    or by sms/WhatsApp on Mob 9420495477 without further delay.

At the same time everybody from BSNL should explain the customers stand of BSNL behind such increase of small amount of Rs. 32 per month including all taxes. This is first increase after introduction of this plan and this hike is fully justified as compared to increase in inflation over the period. Please try to explain all the queries of customers to their satisfaction with full confidence so that customers are not misguided by representatives of other operators. If you find difficult to explain it to customers or you need any clarification please feel free to call directly to Com. Gaikwad SDE EB Pune, but we should grab this opportunity for increasing GSM subscriber base of BSNL.
