March to Raj Bhawan / Collectorate / DM Office on 9th March, 2017 -- Make extensive preparations:

The meeting of the Unions and Associations of BSNL, held on 06-02-2017 unanimously decided to organise March to Raj Bhawan / Collectorate / DM Offices on 09.03.2017. In other words Rallies should be conducted at all Circle and District headquarters on 09-03-2017.


a) Opposing Niti Ayogs proposal for Closure and transfer of BSNL assets to State Govts.

b) Opposing formation of Subsidiary Tower Company.

c) Demanding allotment of 4G spectrum, free of cost, to BSNL.

d) Opposing favours being extended to Reliance Jio.


This programme will help us in a big way, to propagate among the public, the conspiracies being hatched by the Government and the Niti Ayog, to disinvest and finish BSNL in one way or the other way. All Circle and SSA Secretaries are requested to coordinate with the other Unions and Associations for the successful implementation of the rallies on 09.03.2017. 


Developments on E2, E3 pay scales:

As per the letter from DoT, DIR(HR) and PGM(Estt) tried to make a presentation to AST and other officers of DoT on 10.02.2017. According to the informations, AST already made up his mind on the issue and not even bothered to listen to BSNL presentation. AST maintained his earlier stand that E1 and E2 pay scales to be given for the new recruits and for those recruited in E1A scale, additional increments will be given. Otherwise E1A and E2A pay scales will be approved by sending it to Union Cabinet.

DIR(HR) informed that AST opined that E1A and E2A pay scale is applicable only for those absorbed from DoT and for the BSNL recruits, E1 and E2 pay scales are applicable from 2000 onwards. BSNL done a mistake by new recruitment in E1A scale from 2001.

Finally the decision is going to be taken by Secretary, DoT and the CMDs say in this regard will be very crucial. The confusion created on the pay scales during the last two years given sufficient opportunity and time for DoT to take such a negative stand.

Now the Executives are in three stages, in E1 scale of Rs 16400, in E1+5 of Rs 19020, at Rs 22820 etc. AST and DoT is thinking about E1 scale of Rs 16400 only, not even E1+ 5 increments of Rs 19020 or E2 scale of Rs 20600.

Comrades, it is high time to maintain unity among all the Executives. We will not allow any force to demote the cadre. Our unity, unity among the Executives only can save the cadre from demotion to E1 and E2 scales. 


Congratulations: The court case filed by SNEA at Hon PCAT, New Delhi for the pay fixation under FR22(1)(a)(1) without the restriction of FR 35  for the officiating JTOs come up for hearing today and we got favourable judgment. The benefit extended to SNEA members as in the case of others. We met PGM(Estt) and held further discussions on its immediate implementation. Once judgment copy is received, it will be immediately endorsed to the Circles, PGM(Estt) assured. Our Jt Sec Com Arvind Dahiya was present in the court to pursue the case.
