Ø Though extension has not been issued, the CUG plan with minor changes has been relaunched and will be again highly accepted by the farmers of Maharashtra Circle.

23 OCT 15: Relieving of officer under Transfer “To & From” All India Tenure Stations: In special letter addressed to all CGMs, Ms. S.T.Ray, Director HR BSNL writes all CGMs for relieving of all SDEs/DEs/DGMs/GMs under transfer to & from all India Tenure Stations latest by 30/10/2015, with warning to relieve all these executives through ERP on 01/11/2015. Letter <<<>>>

Ø This will be great relief to the officers held up for months/years together at All India hard tenure stations after completion of prescribed tenure  and SNEA MH welcomes this move as it will prevail justice to all these comrades and will set precedence for better implementation of all India Tenure Transfers of executives completing their tenure.

Ø But we doubt how the BSNL CO will be in position to implement it when Pers Cell BSNL CO itself has biased approach towards the relieving of the executives under transfer to tenure station.

Ø In the recent past, it is seen that whoever is approaching Pers Cell BSNL CO, he/she is getting retention and that to be very random retention as per the wish & will of individual officer and we are sorry to say that Pers Cell seems to be helpless in stopping these officers and their malpractices rather actions at Personnel are supporting to individuals and their “God Fathers” for such pick and choose retention of non genuine cases.

Ø It makes us panic that the request of officers not having any genuine grounds but who are finding ways to reach Pers Cell BSNL CO are being retained randomly and particularly on pick and choose basis and the requests of officers having real & genuine difficulties/problems and who are not able to approach directly or indirectly or not able to manage chain to reach Pers cell of BSNL CO are made to suffer like anything and now forcibly relived and it is really matter of shame for Pers cell.

Ø We are sure that Director HR may not be aware of all these wrong practices going on at lower level and has issued strict and binding instructions for relieving all the officers under transfer to all India hard tenure stations.

Ø We know some of DGMs/SDEs who are expert in managing someone in Pers Cell will not bother to even such instructions that of Director HR BSNL Board as they have never worried when they are supported by such strong sources definitely who are more powerful than the Director HR.

Ø SNEA MH has no objection if this order is implemented equally & uniformly for all from GMs to SDEs as it will help in relieving of many of officers held up in Hard tenure stations, but if it is implemented in biased and pick and choose method and attempts are made for relieving officers in pick and choose method, it will definitely & strongly opposed by us as it is against natural justice.

Ø We will not allow such pick and choose relieving, that to be forcible relieving of some officers having genuine difficulties and retention of officers not having any genuine issues/problems as notified in transfer policy.

Ø  Let us hope that at least some sensitive officers in Pers cell itself takes note of unrest amongst the executives  about this biased approach and takes initiatives to stop all these pick and choose malpractices except genuine cases as referred in well defined transfer policy guidelines and this letter by Director HR is made applicable equally to all and everyone is given equal treatment and the present flow of officers and their influential sources inside/outside BSNL who are frequently visiting Pers Cell BSNL CO for managing individual  transfer is totally stopped.

Ø  Otherwise this letter even from highest HR authority of BSNL will be just routine formality and we fear over the days, such special letters from highest authorities will also lose their meaning/importance and it will be mere formality of threatening poor officers and supporting the officers who are managing transfers by hooks and crooks.

Senior officers of the CFA and Mobile wings were also present. The revenue from mobile services has grown by 3.49% during the period from April to September this year and that revenue from Enterprise business has grown by 25 %. The overall revenue has grown by 1.5%. The growth in landlines was also - 0.3% and very soon this will also become positive, said the CMD. He further stated that in the month of September alone we have added 1 lakh mobile connections through MNP. During previous months, it was about 30,000 each. However, he stated that mobile additions have decreased now, compared to the month of July and requested the Forum to take steps to motivate the employees in the marketing front. Major concern is eastern zone, where no improvement is happening. Situation is worse in WB and Kolkata TD Circles where the revenue figure is -14% and -9%. CMD further stated that our revenue needs to be increased at least by Rs.5,000 crores to offset the expenditure on wage revision alone from 01.01.2017. The leaders pointed out that acute shortage of cable, drop wire, 5 pair cable, etc. is still prevailing at the field level, which requires to be solved immediately to provide fault free service. The CMD assured that these items will be supplied immediately especially dropwire as per requirement to increase the and once again requested the Forum representatives to step up marketing activities. On the large scale complaint about the recent BB modem, CMD asked to bring few faulty modems for testing at BSNLCO. It will be arranged shortly.

This is good sign that after changeover of Finance wing senior management, immediate & positive step is taken for giving consideration to request transfers. SNEA MH has taken stand that transfer to Choice stations should be at own cost at par with Telecom, Civil & Electrical wing & expenditure on transfers should be minimum. This transfer order of AOs/JAOs supports this legal and official stand taken by us.  SNEA MH welcomes this positive step immediately after changes in senior management. Let us hope in days to come this positive attitude continues & all Finance wing officers in Maharashtra Circle get their choice of posting at least at own cost and at the same time money of BSNL is also saved by applying such intelligent HR ideas.

17 OCT 15:  Subsidy claim data for QE Sept 2015 received in time: Many of the comrades working on claims of subsidy have complained about over delay in updating data by ITPC Pune and it was reported that in some of quarters the data was not updated up to 25th of the month and on an average data was uploaded by 20th of the month. As such the field units were facing problems in consolidating the data, making document ready after taking thousands of print outs, getting it signed from different officers including SSA Head and its submission to Circle office causing delay by Circle office to submit it to CCA. In this process BSNL has to bear huge expenditure on last minute actions for completion of process and in submission of subsidy claims in time and in many cases the subsidy claim was denied due to delay.

As such during last meeting with Shri. Prabhash Singh CGM ITPC Pune on 21/08/2015, SNEA MH has raised these issues and elaborated him about the field difficulties and he has assured to look into issues so as data will be made available to field units at least by 15th of month.

It is important that Shri. Prabhash Singh CGM ITPC Pune and his team keeps the word and in this quarter the subsidy claim data for entire Maharashtra Circle is made available two days advance to the assured time as the data for Quarter Ending Sept 15  has been uploaded by ITPC Pune on 12/10/2015 & this is the commitment.

SNEA Maharashtra congratulates Shri. Prabhash Singh CGM ITPC Pune & his entire team of ITPC Pune involved in this work & convey sincere thanks for keeping the word and resolving the difficulties faced by field units by their timely action. We are confident that from next quarter onwards instead of uploading raw data, the uniformly processed subsidy claim data will be uploaded by ITPC Pune, which will save manpower of BSNL in different SSAs which is specially kept reserve for calculation of subsidy claims.

We also convey thanks to Com. K.L.Jadhav, DP, Com. V.N.Kokare, DS,  Com. Sunil Pawar DT and entire  team of SNEA ITPC Pune for continuous persuasion of this issue from table to table and officer to officers & getting matter finally resolved reduced the difficulties of entire Maharashtra Circle.

16 OCT 15: Forum Meeting with CGMT MH: Delegation of Forum of BSNL Unions & Associations led by Com. Nageshkumar Nalawade, CS BSNLEU comprising Com. R.N.Ayre CS NFTE BSNL MH, Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH, Com. K.S. Kulkarni, Secretary CHQ NFTE BSNL, Com. S.B.Bhosale, CT SNEA MH, Com. Anil Dubey, DS SNEA Mumbai, Com. Bhalchandra Mane, ACE BSNLEU MH, Com. Vijay Gosavi, ACS NFTE BSNL MH had meeting with Shri. G.K.Upadhay, on 14/10/2015 in his chember at Circle Office Mumbai and discussed prominent issues of Maharashtra Circle and submitted memorandum on protest against humiliation of Maharashtra Circle and intentional wrong posting of GM level officers at important portfolios of Maharashtra Circle creating hurdles in growth of BSNL in MH Circle. Memorandum <<<>>>        

·        During discussions delegation has drawn attention of CGMT towards the issues affecting to the growth of BSNL Maharashtra Circle and mainly about the careless approach of BSNL CO towards posting of Officers on prominent positions of GM/PGM EB Mumbai and Add GM NOFA Mumbai which has direct impact on growth of Maharashtra Circle. 

·        Shri. G.K.Upadhay, CGMT MH who first resisted accepting memorandum quoting that posting of GMs is being done by BSNL CO and directed leaders of Forum to approach senior officers at BSNL Corporate office. We have made him clear that the issue is related to growth & revenue of Maharashtra Circle and as head of Circle his role is very important in this matter to convey right things to BSNL CO.

·        After brief discussions, CGMT MH accepted the memorandum and added that the change in portfolios of GM EB and Add GM NOFN are not done in consultation with him and he has never demanded for same. He expressed that he also is surprised to know such changes of important portfolios.

·        He further added that the post of GM EB is important portfolio and as it was vacant for prolonged period, he has requested BSNL CO for filling this vacant post for 3-4 times and BSNL CO has perhaps issued orders by posting senior officers among GM level officers in Mumbai. He added that EB being important portfolio the senior officer is posted and later confirmed that he was consulted at last moment of issuing orders and as he also find no alternative arrangement for EB section.

·        We have brought to his notice about availability of other senior officers for the post of EB and stressed to have PGM level officer who could look into issues of Enterprise Business for entire Maharashtra. We explained him that as on today no new business is being added to BSNL Maharashtra Circle and entire energy is being used for maintaining existing business of BSNL.  CGMT silently agreed the facts and added that he is much worried about the works of EB and in absence of GM level officer he has to attend the meetings which is not possible.

·        We also pointed how BSNL CO proposes and he accepts to post a GM EB who is just left with eight month of services before his superannuation retirement. We have explained him issues in detail and made it clear the problems which will be faced by BSNL Maharashtra Circle by posting such officer as GM EB Mumbai. We also stressed to post PGM level officer who is left with reasonable service of at least 2-3 years so that he can take visionary decisions and motivate EB team and at the same time co-ordinate with all the units from Circle and BSNL CO.

·        We further pointed out that changing Add GM who is in charge of NOFN for Maharashtra Circle will again cause situation in MH Circle as that of last year which shifted CGM level officer. We made it clear that we have no objection for changing present GM HR/Admn Mumbai, but what message BSNL wants to give by posting him as GM EB Mumbai and how he will discharge more responsibilities as out of eight months left he will take time to learn and understand the customer & EB works.

·        We narrated him that new GM HR/Admn posted is not having administrative experience or was never in charge of SSA head and it will be difficult for him to deal with vast works of Staff, Admn, Disciplinary cases, legal, staff quarters, trainings etc and suitable substitute SAG level officer needs to be posted because in case of Disciplinary cases JAG level officer cannot take any decision and all workload will come to him as CGMT MH.    

·        After detail feedback and elaborate discussions, Shri. G.K.Upadhay CGMT MH agreed that the present order for change of portfolios is not justified and will affect the working of all the important portfolios and assured that he will take up matter with BSNL CO for suitable modification and directed us to take up at association level.  

·        Before these discussions, we had brought to the notice of CGMT MH the critical draught situation in Maharashtra Circle and conveyed him proposal of Forum to contributing Rs. 100 from willing staff & officers from Maharashtra Circle. This will strengthen the relations of BSNL with State Government and will be part of Social Responsibility on part of BSNL as well as its work Force. We also suggested that CGMT MH will make such appeal which is strongly supported by Forum of Unions & Associations as their members will contribute Rs. 100 per head minimum and maximum as individual wish and such amount will be deducted from Salary of November 2015. If anybody is unwilling to contribute, he/she should submit it in writing to AO Salary concerned directly and amount collected will be handed over centrally to Maharashtra Chief Minister Relief Fund wherein all Circle Secretaries of Forum will accompany CGMT MH Circle. After detail discussions on pros and cons of the issues Shri. G.K.Upadhay, CGMT MH accepted the proposal and requested to submit letter from Forum for same.

·        On conclusions of meeting, CGMT MH who was having short of time, appealed all the leaders to concentrate of achieving targets assigned to Maharashtra Circle and see that members of all Unions and associations contribute maximum for development of BSNL and assured to extend support whatever required by field units.

·         The fruitful discussions for more than 45 minutes concluded with thanks on both side and firm assurances to go ahead with the discussions and to work hard for growth of BSNL.

 14 OCT 15: BSNL CO issued transfer order of GM level Officers in which Shri. Pravin Malhotra GM HR/Admn is posted as GM EB Mumbai & Shri. J.B.Chavan Add GM NOFA is posted as GM HR/Admn Mumbai. Order <<<>>>  

·        Comrades, it seems that careless approach of BSNL management towards the overall functioning of Maharashtra Circle continues with more intensity.

·        This is one more example how BSNL management is playing with working of Maharashtra Circle and how the biggest Telecom circle of BSNL is being destabilized.

·        It is important that Enterprise Business of Maharashtra Circle is important portfolio as concerned to revenue generation as well as growth of BSNL throughout India as it deals with the bulk, major and important high revenue customers which contribute up to 20 % revenue of BSNL.

·        One side all the important officers from BSNL management are stressing for generation of revenue and increasing business and other side jokes after jokes are being created in posting officer in charge of such important portfolio responsible for revenue generation for BSNL.

·        It is really surprising that the post of PGM EB Mumbai is vacant since 31/07/2015 and when it was known that then GM was due for retirement, no action was taken to fill up the post and when action is taken to fill up post, the GM level officer Shri. Pravin Malhotra who is left with less than eight month of service is posted as GM EB Mumbai and it is but natural that the officer left with less than eight month service will not in position to meet with the requirement of BSNL Business at economical Capital of India.

·        When post of GM EB is filled by posting officer at verge of retirement, the responsibility of GM HR/Admn Mumbai is handed over to Shri. J.B.Chavan, who is well aware about the geographical area of MH Circle, by nature he is very humble & gentleman highly technical officer, but he has never handled any administrative unit even in small circle or has never worked as SSA Heads.

·        He is directly given responsibility of the second important portfolio of the administrative post of Maharashtra Circle after post of CGMT MH and he will have to face problems as many of his seniors who are hurted by his posting at important portfolio will not co-operate him in discharging duties as GM HR/Admn.  

·        It is further to note that Shri. J.B. Chavan is holding important portfolio of NOFN, the dream project of Govt of India which is being regularly monitored by Hon. MoC. You may remember that on the name of poor progress of NOFN during last , then CGMT MH also was transferred from MH Circle to WTP Circle and now he is in charge of OFC works not only of Maharashtra Circle, but in charge of OFC works of four Circles i.e. Maharashtra, Gujarat, MP & Chhattisgarh Circle. If non performance on OFC works in one circle was reason, then what made to make him in charge of similar works of Four Circles is still under question?

·        Now from same NOFN project only add GM Shri. J.B. Chavan posted is shifted without transferred without posting substitute in his place and posted as GM HR/Admn Mumbai and if such attitude continues this year also CGMT MH will be transferred in most humiliation & degrading manner for poor performance of NOFN project. 

·        This is not first time the BSNL management takes Maharashtra Circle casually, earlier the CGMT was transferred all of sudden on name of NOFN, the substitute posted was changed over the night and new substitute posted also do not join for about one month period and in Month of March 2015 the post of CGMT MH was vacant.

·        Comrades, we have already narrated that BSNL management has taken lenient view in the recent past and random retention orders are issued only in respect of certain officers and after lenient view it is turn of repetition of careless approach in filling important portfolios of Maharashtra Circle and here we are concerned as it has badly affected growth of BSNL Maharashtra Circle. 

·        Just before one month BSNL CO issued cancellation/retention order of GM level Officer who was relieved from Maharashtra Circle and officially send-off also was given to him by the concerned SSA and this was one of the examples of lenient view of BSNL management.

·        It is important that only few GM level Officers may be in hundreds are left in BSNL and HR section which directing every unit for proper HR approach, is not dealing with posting of GM level officer which are in few number and very important portfolios are filled with careless and causal manner and this definitely & directly hampers the growth of BSNL in Maharashtra Circle.

·        Now, it is part of discussions among some of the officers in Maharashtra Circle that its inter rivalry of some of senior officers in Maharashtra Circle which has given wrong feedback to BSNL Management and hence the transfers are issued without going to the depth of requirement of these important portfolios and without giving any importance to growth & revenue of BSNL Maharashtra Circle. 

·        SNEA MH is not worried about posting of GM HR/Admn and we will continue pursue our HR issues with any GM HR/Admn Mumbai, but we are worried about the fate of Enterprise Business & NOFN Project throughout Maharashtra Circle, if officers are transferred and shifted in such humiliating and degrading manner by diverting their focus on the works assigned.

·        We will definitely take up matter with different officers/offices from CGMT MH to BSNL CO for posting of proper GM level Officer as PGM/GM EB Mumbai and for availability of responsible officer for NOFN works throughout Maharashtra Circle.

·         Let us hope BSNL management understands the reality and take corrective action in filling these important portfolios and shows real concern about growth and revenue of BSNL Maharashtra Circle otherwise it will be just matter of Crocodile tears about survival of BSNL.

13 OCT 15: New guidelines for posting to ITPC/ERP: BSNL CO issued new guidelines for posting of SDEs to ITPC & ERP Cells with uniform selection criteria and executives having technical expertise. Letter <<<>>>

Ø As per this new procedure, GM CIT BSNL CO act as Nodal officer for calling volunteers for posting to ITPC/ERP to meet need of technical expertise at both the units and hence forth the representations for posting to ITPC /ERP needs to be addressed to GM CIT BSNL CO. 

Ø This selection will be done on basis of well defined five conditions viz. application through proper channel, minimum two years at the place of posting, name in the ODI/Agreed list, officers under transfer and position in long stay list.

Ø Though selection will be done by CIT cell, the transfer orders will be issued by Pers Cell on the basis of recommendations of CIT Cell.  

Ø Letter also directs to CIT Cell to prepare list of the officers working in ITPC/ERP who are no longer required at ITPC/ERP due to their technical adequacy and transfer all such technically unfit officers to other important assignment or to other Circles having shortage of executives. 

Ø Comrades, “Pick and choose posting of SDEs to ITPC Pune” was strongly & successfully opposed by SNEA MH at different levels for last one year and this letter supports the stand taken by SNEA MH.

Ø With these new guidelines the pick and choose posting will be totally stopped and ITPC/ERP will get Technical expert SDEs and henceforth ITPC Pune which has become hub of long stay officers in Maharashtra Circle and specifically from Pune will not give shelter to any long stay even though he/she is technically expert.

Ø It is good sign that non technical officers wasting their time & BSNL money in Technical team of ITPC/ERP due to pick and choose policy without having technical expertise in IT/ERP, will be now shifted out of ITPC/ERP and will be posted to other important but non technical assignments or to the circles having shortage of executives.

Ø This will stop unwanted transfers from Territorial Circles to ITPC/ERP and will put permanent lock on pick and choose transfers of only selected executives to ITPC Pune as happened during transfer orders issued last year.

Ø As such SNEA MH welcomes these guidelines and will be vigil to check that these guidelines are followed strictly in selection & posting of executives to ITPC/ERP.

 10 OCT 15: DGM CSC Mumbai calls for vendor category information from all SSAs/units for introduction of new procedure for bill payments w.e.f. 01/11/2015. Letter <<<>>>

Ø On introduction of ERP in Maharashtra Circle to have double check and avoid duplicate/non genuine payments of vendor bills, this stringent system of confirmation of ERP payments by covering email was started. This was time consuming procedure as till the confirmation email is not received till the payments were not released though it was appearing in ERP.

Ø This has created panic in the field officers and among vendors as for such small reasons the payments were held up from days to months together. Also it was doubt created by Finance wing officers on the integrity of the ERP system itself.

Ø  Now this time consuming procedure of sending confirmation by email will be stopped from 01/11/2015 & payments will be released as appearing in ERP system itself without waiting for confirmation of email. This will save time of officers in ERP as well as field units as the officers in field units will not have to send covering email and officers in CSC will not have to check hundred/thousands of emails daily which was one of the reasons for delayed payments in CSC.

Ø  Let us hope this new procedure speed up the bill payments through ERP and the saved energy of the officers is used for creative works without doubts on integrity of field officers and integrity of ERP system itself.

CMD assured in the meeting that the committee will conclude the recommendations by 15.08.2015 by regular meetings, at least once in a fortnight. The earlier committee formed on 28.02.2012 was defunct for more than 3 years which compelled SNEA to launch trade union actions in February, 2014 and in April-May, 2015. After the reconstitution, SNEA followed up the issues on a day to day basis which resulted in the final recommendations within four and half months’ time. Before that SNEA pursued the pay scale issue in DoT and DPE vigorously and got the proposal of intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A rejected by DPE.

Comrades, we have to be very vigilant and in full organizational preparedness to ensure that the recommendations are implemented in totality without any change. As some negative forces are working to see that no cadre issue is getting resolved for the absorbed/directly recruited Executives, we have to keep ourselves prepared for any organizational actions in short notice to see that the recommendations are getting implemented in the minimum possible time. 

B.   Popularizing and effective marketing of new Broad band schemes with 2 Mbps speed. CMD requested to give maximum publicity to the new schemes and get maximum connections. The revenue has to increase considerably in the coming months by the new initiatives.

New Business Avenue by imparting training – advantage of recent tour to Kenya to attend the Afro-Asia submit. CMD explained the new initiatives to increase the revenue by imparting training with the available infrastructure. BSNL utilizing this as an opportunity and DoT is supporting BSNL to get new businesses.

7 OCT 15: CAO FC Mumbai issued order for Looking arrangement as AO in respect of  124 JAOs for 179 days w.e.f. 06/10/2015 and all are posted in their working SSA itself.  Letter <<<>>>

Ø With this LA order about every JAO in Maharashtra Circle will be now functioning as AO and ample Account Officers will be available in each and every SSA and shortage of AOs will be minimized to good extent.

Ø It is good sign that Mr. Bhaskar CAO FC Mumbai and Mrs. Marina George, Sr GM Fin Mumbai have changed their mindset of random transfers as happened in the recent pick and choose transfers issued by both these officers & have now understood the wastage of BSNL Money on transfer and posting and have posted all JAOs as AO LA in same SSA.

Ø This may be fact that Mrs. Marina George, Sr GM Fin Mumbai who also has been transferred as per recent transfer order issued by BSNL CO and now after self transfer she has realized the problems/difficulties due to midsession transfers and hence nobody is transferred on name of looking after arrangement.

Ø If such idea was implemented in recent mass transfers of Finance wing officers, many of the transfers would have been avoided and JAOs/AOs under transfer will have given better services due to such good HR approach by FC section.

Ø SNEA MH congratulates both the officers for such positive action after long time and let us hope that this positive attitude continues with all other HR issues of Finance wing officers and manmade troubles to the Finance wing officers in Maharashtra Circle are kept minimum rather ‘Nil’.

Ø We are happy to see that with such positive step, lakhs of rupees of BSNL money will be saved which was being wasted just for satisfaction of individual’s ego or mainly due to lack of creative ideas for saving BSNL money in tune with BSNL transfer policy.

 6 OCT 15:  AGM Staff Mumbai issued orders of Voluntary retirement of Mrs. Jyoti Yelne SDE Pune from 05/10/2015 & same has been served yesterday. Letter <<<>>>

ü Comrades, may remember that Mrs. Yelne SDE Pune TD even though longest stayed SDE in Pune SSA  was transferred to ITPC on pick and choose basis that to be by two separate orders by BSNL CO, first on basis of wrong selections method by ITPC Pune itself and second time it was issued through the outside influence. 

ü This was one of the pick and choose transfers to ITPC Pune strongly objected by SNEA MH at different levels & then Mrs. Yelne has opted for VRS.

ü Comrades, this is clear signal by BSNL, that transfer policy is equally applicable to all executives and no one can escape from it & mainly long stay transfer cannot be avoided by applying any official or unofficial idea including outside influence. 

ü We further appeal all the comrades to respect transfer policy and follow it in true sense unless you are not having genuine medical issues defined in transfer policy so that everybody get equal treatment and at justice prevails for all.

ü Uniform implementation of transfer policy was & is stand of with SNEA MH and we will continue with it for all comrades.
