·        The Sanchar Awards were announced on 28/02/2018 and it is proposed to distribute it in function of BSNL Foundation day celebrations on 01/10/2018. Letter <<<>>>

·        By taking note of feelings expressed by many of the comrades about the expenses being made on BSNL day celebrations when BSNL is going through very poor financial conditions, the District Secretaries of Unions and Associations in Circle Office Mumbai have written this letter which has been signed Com. Yeswant Kekare, DS BSNLEU Mumbai, Com. Milind Ingle, DS NFTE BSNL Mumbai, Com. Anil Dubey, DS SNEA Mumbai and Com Hrushikesh Walawalkar, DS AIBSNLEA Mumbai and was handed over on 28/09/2018.

·        In response to this letter, Shri. R. C. Chavan, DGM Admn Mumbai called meeting to discuss the issues raised by All Unions & Associations in Circle Office Mumbai which was attended by Com. Yeswant Kekare, DS BSNLEU Mumbai, Com. Milind Ingle, DS NFTE BSNL Mumbai,  Com. Anil Dubey, DS SNEA Mumbai and Com Hrushikesh Walawalkar, DS AIBSNLEA Mumbai.

·        After detail discussions on the subject, it was decided and announced by DGM Admn Mumbai that by taking note of concern raised by DS of Unions and Associations Mumbai the lunch arranged for BSNL day celebrations has been cancelled and TWWO function will be held separately in same hall after the BSNL day celebration function and meeting was concluded.

·        However, after conclusive decision in meeting by DGM HR Mumbai, again Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai has called fresh meeting and it was also attended by same leaders along with DGM Admn Mumbai. 

·        It is reported that Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai was much annoyed with the decision announced by DGM Admn Mumbai and he started discussions with hot temperament. He stated that you leaders are not aware about the issue and issuing foolish letters. This was objected by Com Anil Dubey, DS SNEA Mumbai further discussions were hot among them, and GM HR Admn Mumbai said that he does not want to discuss further with Com Anil Dubey and there is no need of discussions on this subject.

·        Com Anil Dubey, DS SNEA Mumbai also stressed that if discussions were not required then meeting should not have been called by him and management would have given reply in writing and made it clear that he was called for discussions only by GM HR Admn Mumbai and he has not joined meeting at his own and he has no interest to continue such one sided discussions and left the meeting by registering strong protest against wrong doings of management. 

·        Then discussions with other DS also concluded and GM HR Admn asked them to give in writing for cancellation of food arrangements and withdrawal of letter given by Unions and Associations Mumbai.

·        But these leaders have informed that they will discuss among them separately and decide whether to give in writing or not.

·        Thereafter, matter was discussed by all four DS and it was decided that they have already given in writing and action needs to be taken by management in its response and no need of any letter again from them as demanded by GM HR Admn Mumbai. 

·        Finally, with strong pleading and powerful argument by all DS, the management has decided to cancel the Food arrangements for BSNL day Celebrations. Letter <<<>>>

·        In food arrangements, Pav Bhaji and Pulav was arranged for 1000 peoples and estimated expenses were Rs. 1,70,000.00 ( Rupees One Lakh Seventy Thousands) and same would have increased by some more numbers as usually happens in such public arrangements.

·        GM HR Admn Mumbai has requested to allow the award Distribution of TWWO as it is with assurance that it will not be lengthy function and same has been agreed by these leaders. 

·        In later developments, may be with intervention of Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH, the Circle management has responded very positively and as per information given by Shri. R. C. Chavan DGM Admn Mumbai now there are changes in the venue of this function and the BSNL day celebrations proposed in Sangam Community Centre” in BSNL Staff Quarters Complex is shifted to “Second Floor, Conference Hall, BSNL Administrative Building, Circle Office Mumbai in same campus and further expenses on rented Chairs and arrangements on PA system etc is also saved.

·        It is reported that there is no change in schedule of Function and it will start at 1000 hrs on 01/10/2018 as planned earlier.

·        We all are aware that the financial condition of BSNL has reached to critical condition and BSNL do not have money to meet any of the expenses even for arranging retirement function of retired employees which comes in just thousands of rupees, how lakhs of rupees can be wasted in BSNL day celebrations, needs be analyzed and understood to the depth.

·        CGMT MH has already underlined that some of SSA Heads are not holding retirement function for want of funds or non availability of the Temporary advances, the strict orders have been issued for more than 70% reduction of EOIs and Security Guards, payments of the vendors are not being cleared for months together even after final settlement of the bills, there is no money for filling diesel in DG sets, running departmental vehicles and so on and at the same time expenses were proposed in lakhs of rupees in BSNL day celebrations only in Circle Office Mumbai and no any such celebration arrangements has been proposed in any of the SSA.

·        Many of the comrades from filed units have expressed that they are spending days and nights for sale of SIM cards which earns revenue approximately Rs. 100 per month, visiting customers for outstanding amounts and earning revenue for BSNL and nothing was proposed for celebration in any of the SSA and celebrations are proposed only in Circle Office Mumbai, which is not correct.

·        In HOCC meeting held before two days at Delhi which was attended by all CGMs, vertical heads at BSNL CO and Directors of BSNL Board, wherein CGMT MH has given proposal that 20% salary of BSNL employees in Maharashtra Circle should be stopped immediately so as to make them work more sincerely and feel heat of the financial condition of BSNL.

·        But, here in Circle Office Mumbai, DGM Admn Mumbai and GM HR Admn Mumbai have planned for making expenses of lakhs of rupees on BSNL day celebrations that to be only in Mumbai.

·        The District Secretaries in Circle Office Mumbai have objected for it and made it clear that management cannot go ahead by neglecting the feelings and sentiments of BSNL workforce struggling to increase revenue for BSNL to meet present competition in Telecom sector.  

·        SNEA MH congratulates and appreciates the stand taken by the District Secretaries of Unions & Associations in Mumbai viz. Com. Yeswant Kekare, DS BSNLEU Mumbai, Com. Milind Ingle, DS NFTE BSNL Mumbai, Com. Anil Dubey, DS SNEA Mumbai and Com Hrushikesh Walawalkar, DS AIBSNLEA Mumbai to safeguard interest of BSNL thereby requesting management for corrective actions to save avoidable expenses.  

·        SNEA MH conveys thanks to Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH, Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai and Shri. R.C.Chavan DGM Admn Mumbai for prompt & positive response to the concern expressed by leaders of Union & Associations in Mumbai and giving feeling that management is also really concerned about the poor financial conditions of BSNL and everybody has to follow it now.

·        SNEA MH appeals all comrades in Circle office Mumbai to attend this function sharply at 1000 hrs in 2nd Floor Conference Hall, Santacruz West Mumbai and make it grand success.

25 SEP 18:  DGM Admn Mumbai issued orders for celebrations of BSNL Formation Day and Vishist  Sanchar Sewa Padak Award Distribution function on 01/10/2018 at Circle Office Mumbai. Letter <<<>>>

·        It is good that BSNL day is being celebrated but where it is required to make huge expenses on celebrations when there is no money with BSNL to meet even day-to-day minimum required expenses to maintain services.

·        When BSNL is facing such extreme critical financial condition as never seen before and same has been repeatedly pronounced by Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH at each and every occasion even by warning every now and then that there is no money to pay even salary of coming month and he is making certain efforts to arrange salary every month, here DGM Admn Mumbai is issuing orders for celebration of BSNL day in lavish manner by arranging food for all participants with expenditure of lakhs of rupees.

·        We are surprised where CGMT MH is right or DGM Admn Mumbai is rightly aware about financial condition of BSNL and there is much confusion among the workforce of BSNL on such dual approach of Circle Management.

·        Here GM HR Admn Mumbai has issued orders for direct reduction of medical bills by 12% for not availing discounts as BSNLs financial condition is not good, and his office is making expenditure of lakhs of rupees on such function when there are clear guidelines from BSNL CO for arranging such functions with minimum expenditures.

·        Further, there is drought like situation in Maharashtra Circle as there are no proper rains in some districts or excess rain in some districts, thousands of citizens of Kerala state have been passed away or suffered lifetime losses due to natural calamities of heavy rains/floods, such heavy expenses on functions should be avoided as a wise decisions, but now days we see lack of such thinking on part of Circle management.

·        Further, it is fact that many of the field officers of BSNL Maharashtra Circle are facing problems as there is no money for diesel refilling, there is no money to grant Temporary advances to executives to meet day to day expenses, no money for medical bill reimbursement, no money for minimum required Security Guards, no money for minimum required contract labours, no money to pay outstanding bills of the contractors and all these works are practically stalled up, morally such functions in lavish manner should be avoided.

·        But we cannot expect such wise decision from Circle management and we will have only to listen from management about curtailment of expenditure in giving services to customers without any such action for saving expenditure even on avoidable functions on part of management.

·        Many of the comrades have shared that when BSNL is facing such critical condition there is no need of arranging food for all participants thereby increasing expenditure of lakhs of rupees of BSNL when BSNL is not in position to meet day-to-day expenses and we can attend function even without such lavish arrangements.  

·        It is also seen that in such prestigious function of Vishisth Sanchar Award Distribution, the function of TWWO is mixed and some certificates for TWWO members for their contribution within TWWO itself are being issued on this occasion thereby degrading the importance of the “Sanchar Awards”.

·        By look at the arrangements of the function and it is also understood that this year also the awards of TWOO will be mixed with Sanchar awards.

·        TWWO is welfare organisation and there are many other welfare organisations including official organisation of BSNL i.e.  Spots and Cultural Welfare Board and BSNL teams are achieving different awards/certificates but these welfare organisations are also not allowed to distribute certificate in this function and in back door attempts only TWWO is permitted to take direct part in Distribution of awards and making this official function of BSNL day Celebration as Function of TWWO.

·        If TWWO is permitted for distribution certificates for their members from Dias of BSNL day celebrations, then there is need of addition of certificate distributions by other welfare boards,  SEWA which is also welfare organisation, all Unions/Associations in BSNL so that equal opportunity is given to all.

·        We cannot allow management to permit only TWWO to distribute its certificates in official Function of BSNL as spouse of CGMT MH is head of TWWO MH Circle which is mandatory condition of TWWO functioning.

·        SNEA MH will take up matter with CGMT MH, GM HR/Admn and DGM Admn Mumbai for avoiding unwanted expenditure on these celebrations of BSNL day and also for not mixing TWWO certificate distribution with Prestigious Sanchar wards Distribution function and maintain prestige of these awards and BSNL day celebrations.


25 SEP 18:  CAO FC Mumbai calls for 15 point VC Performa from different SSAs in respect of 36 AOs for next spell of CAO LA arrangements. Letter <<<>>>

·        It is fact that nowadays VC is online and everywhere on line VC is being adopted and accepted even for Regular promotions, but here in old traditional method working of FC section, CAO FC calls for the hard copies of VCs that to be just for continuation of LA arrangements.

·        This happens when CGMT MH has given clear cut instructions in formal Meeting with SNEA as well as in one of the Circle level management meeting for not calling any hard copy of VCs and go for only online VCs and its responsibility of concerned SSA Head to update VC and Administrative data in ERP 

·        SNEA MH will take up matter with concerned officers for not calling hard copies of VCs, go for online VCs, and move towards the digital age from traditional Hard copy age thereby saving time, money and waste of work force in such routine works.

·        After detail discussions, he has assured to settle all cases with sympathetic grounds and action will be taken in cases of extreme disobedience beyond reasonable time limit.

14 SEP 18:   AGM A&E BSNL CO issued transfer order of SEEs in which Com. Prakash Khade  SEE Raipur, Chhattisgarh is transferred as per his Own Cost request  and posted as SEE Nagpur, the post which was deliberately kept vacant for last one year in game plan of CEE Mumbai to keep the charge of SEE Mumbai with him. Letter <<<>>>


14 SEP 18:   AGM A&E BSNL CO issued for SEE LA all Over India where there EEs from MH Circle are given SEE LA arrangements. Letter <<<>>>

·        In Maharashtra Circle, this issue was created by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai as then SEE LA Mumbai & Nagpur along with other EE LA & SDE LA were reverted quoting that there were irregularities while issuing LA orders by earlier CEEs.

·        In this game plan, Com.  Jhagaru Ram, SEE Mumbai, who is top most senior all Over India, was reverted as EE and his charge of SEE Mumbai was taken over directly by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai and since then for last one year Shri.  Soni is directly using financial powers of SEE Mumbai.

·        This issue was raised by SNEA MH and requested Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai to fill up vacant posts of SEE Mumbai as well as SEE Nagpur by fresh LA orders.

·        After pressure from SNEA MH, then the willingness were called by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai to fill up vacant posts of SEE Mumbai and Nagpur.

·        Accordingly, some of eligible EEs have submitted willingness for SEE LA and it was expected that SEE LA orders would be issued as per the seniority. However, nothing was done even after receipt of sufficient number of willingness were received and matter was kept undecided by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai and he continued to hold charge of SEE Mumbai and was unwilling to handover it to anybody which he would have to handover to SEE Mumbai if SEE LA orders were issued.

·        SNEA MH has again pursued matter with Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai and after repeated reminders, he has issued orders for SEE LA, but he further played game and has issued SEE LA orders without financial powers and compelled the concerned officers to refuse the SEE LA Orders and continued to keep charge of SEE LA Mumbai with him mainly all the financial powers unofficially/officially continued with Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai.

·        Meantime, Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai transferred Shri. S.B.Joshi, EE Kolhapur and he was assured to give SEE LA at Mumbai as he was eligible and has opted for SEE LA either at Mumbai or at Nagpur, but after his transfer to Mumbai, also he was never given SEE LA charge and he was used to settle local arrangements of EEs as per predefined plan of Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai.

·        When SNEA MH again raised matter with Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai for issuing SEE LA Orders as per seniority and willingness, he informed that Com. Jhagaru Ram & Com. S B Joshi both have refused to accept the SEE LA Orders. We have informed that both have submitted written willingness and how can he say that they have refused, he informed that earlier both were willing and now both are verbally not willing and hence he is not issuing orders. We requested for issuing orders and let them refuse in writing as we have confirmed from both that their willingness continued and have never refused as assumed by CEE Mumbai.

·        Thus Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai continued to keep charge of SEE LA Mumbai with him by continued his childish rather extra intelligent game play to keep charge of SEE LA with him as many financial matters are under control of SEE Mumbai and he do not want to hand over his dealing to anybody else.  

·        SNEA MH has raised this issue in Formal meeting & some other meetings with CGMT MH and brought to his notice how Shri. Rajeev Soni is depriving the eligible EEs from taking over charge of SEE LA and how he is interested to deal with financial activities of SEE LA Mumbai.   

·        Then CGMT MH also has directed Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai to take corrective action, but till Shri. Soni did not act and in extra intelligent idea, he sent proposal with wrong seniority and wrong data to GM HR Admn Mumbai for approval of SEE LA Mumbai/Nagpur, which was naturally rejected by GM HR/Admn Mumbai as it was with malafide intention and was continued to be without financial powers.

·        When this proposal was rejected/objected by GM HR Admn Mumbai, then matter was referred to Shri. Pravin Varshney CGM EW BSNL CO and it was decided that SEE LA orders would be issued BSNL CO centrally for filling all vacant post of SEEs all over India and since last 3-4 months again Shri. Soni continued with charge of SEE Mumbai.

·        Then willingness were called from all eligible EEs all over India as per the seniority list and many EEs have submitted willingness including Com. Jhagaru Ram, Com. S. B. Joshi have submitted willingness respectively for SEE Mumbai and SEE Guwahati.

·        Finally, the SEE LA orders are issued centrally by BSNL CO and these orders are as per the seniority, as per the willingness and with financial powers as being continuously pursued by SNEA MH and thus stand of SNEA MH is once again proved right.

·        Thus the unwanted issue created by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai by denying SEE LA Orders to eligible officers in Maharashtra Circle is finally settled giving justice concerned executives by continuous persuasion by SNEA MH over the period of one year and after final and firm intervention of Shri. Pravin Varsheny CGM EW BSNL CO New Delhi, and hopefully now Shri. Rajeev Soni will handover charge of SEE Mumbai to Com. Jhagaru Ram who was not allowed to function as SEE Mumbai even though he is the senior most EE all over India.

·        SNEA MH congratulates all the officers promoted as SEE LA and mainly Com. Jhagaru Ram, Com. S. B. Joshi after struggle of one year and conveys best wishes for new assignment.

·        We are hopeful that charge handing over and taking over will take place without creation of any further hurdles by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai as being done for last one-year period.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Pravin Varshney CGM EW BSNL CO, Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH, Shri.  Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai for their timely intervention, support to the stand taken by SNEA MH for giving SEE LA promotions as per the seniority and mainly with financial powers to promoted SEE LA and thereby stopping game plan by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai to keep the charge of SEE LA officially as well as unofficially with him.

·        We have informed him that relieving of all JAOs may be issued from FC section for all JAOs in single order as many of the IFAs can relieve JAOs and manage the works till joining of new JAOs, and objected for such pick and choose relieving creating unrest among the JAOs under transfer.

·        GM Finance Mumbai has assured to have review of the matter for relieving all JAOs in one order and he firmly informed he was never interested in such pick and choose relieving and has issued orders under compulsions from BSNL CO, but he will take care for future relieving.

·        It has been brought to notice of SNEA MH by some of JAOs that rumors are being spread that the Rule 9 transfers which will not be implemented by Maharashtra Circle will be cancelled.

·        SNEA MH appeals all these JAOs under transfer, not to believe on any such rumors, "Be Happy" that you have got early Rule 9 transfers and be assured that SNEA MH will take care of relieving of all JAOs one by one and within period 2-3 months.

·        Anyone having critical and urgent need of relieving, he/she may represent for early relieving along with supporting documents through proper channel and all such cases recommended by IFAs/SSA Heads, will be pursued for early relieving from Maharashtra Circle.
