DGM Pers DPC JM BSNL CO writes to all Circle Heads of Territorial and Non-Territorial Circles regarding Looking after arrangement at AGM Telecom.Copy <<<>>

As vacancies of AGMs all over India are filled last year and now about 450 posts are vacant for which process of CPC is was scheduled in Month of July 2023.

 CPC Calendar<<<>>

But CPC could not be held as it was decided by Management that CPC for LDCE and SCF quota promotions will be held together. There was much time taken over for finalization of LICE syllabus, Notification and schedule and last moment some administrative issues are reported at side of LICE conducting agency.

Now the LICE is scheduled in March 2023 and hence to meet requirement of field units, this special extension is given for look after in AGM Telecom against these available vacancies till the issue of regular promotions of AGM Telecom, or until further orders,whichever is earlier.

Meantime, SNEA CHQ has requested CMD BSNL for kind intervention and to issue directions for issuing at least SCF quota promotions of all wings and cadres before end of Year 2023, so that the eligibility of the promoted Executives for further promotions is counted w.e.f. 01/01/2024 and the vacancies created with these promotions can be utilised for filling vacancies by CPCs to be held during Year 2024 and we are hopeful for CPC for SCF promotions shortly. 


AGM Pers BSNL CO writes to all Circle Heads regarding revised Terms and conditions for deputation of SDEs from BSNL to various units under DoT.Copy <<<>>

DoT has issued revised guidelines for deputation of Gr B officers as well as Gr C staff, but BSNL has endorsed these guidelines only for GR B SDEs in Telecom wing and not any other GR B posts n BSNL.

Deputation to DoT for fixed number of posts has been allowed since long but the terms and conditions were not well defined in respect of facilities, leave rules, HRA, Pay &Allowances etc and mainly dispute was on payment of SAB/Pension contribution which was not paid by BSNL.

These issues were raised by BSNL and now all the terms and conditions are defined and majority of payments including SAB/Pension, EPF contribution will be borne by DoT.

One more major change is that earlier deputation for three years and now it will be five years.

AGM Pers ERP BSNL CO issued office memorandum regarding submission of Leave requests and Leave approval through FIORI applications by using their SAP login ID and password. Copy <<<>>

FIORI applications are one of the features of upgraded ERP system with latest version which is mobile compatible, and this is important facility of upgraded SAP server.

Presently majority of works on SAP are done on Desktop or Laptop and accessibility from mobile was some what difficult or is not possible at all.

But with this FIORI applications many of these works can be done through this application which can be accessed from Mobile also.

To start with FRACing (Framework of Roles Activities and competencies), leave request and approval is permitted through FIORI applications and after successful implementation of this, the request and approval of Temporary advances, submission and approval of different Purchase Orders will be possible through this FIORI applications.

This will allow flexible working to the executives and one can complete these works while out of the office also by using open internet environment.

AGM Rectt BSNL CO writes to all Circle Heads conveying for date of LICE to be conducted for Six cadres in different wings.  Copy <<<>>

The notification for these Competitive Examinations was issued long back, the schedule for submission of online LICE was issued, but the dates of LICE were not issued as there were some administrative issues with the institute conducting LICE.

This will be Computer Based Online Examination scheduled on Sunday, 04/02/2024 at 1000 AM on different testing Centers all over India for filling vacant post under LICE Quota SE/DGM Civil/Electrical, SDE Arch, DM CSS, PS CSS, KRA, JE Telecom.

The LICE for other streams where there is no legal hurdle or process is not stayed by any court, the process of conduction of LICE is under process and the LICE for these posts will be scheduled in March 2024.  

BSNL has decided fixed calendar for conduction of DPCs of SCF and LICE quota together, but no promotions could happen till this last second month of Year 2023 as it was decided for filling posts under SCF and LICE quota together. 

Now about all LICEs will be scheduled in Year 2024 and hence chances of filling of LICE quota vacancies within the year 2023 is not possible.

But filling of the vacancies under SCF quota is quite possible and SNEA is pursuing for filling up SCF quota vacancies so that the vacancies created under these posts and be utilized during the DPCs for further promotions in Year 2024.

CONGRATULATIONS TO SHRI. VIVEK BANZAL JI, DIRECTOR CFA BSNL BOARD: Delegation of SNEA and its five star alliance partners consisting Shri. M. S. Adasul, GS SNEA, Shri. N.D. Ram, GS SEWA, Shri. R.K. Gupta, GS DEWAB and Shri Suresh Chand Meena VP SEWA CHQ congratulated Shri Vivek Banzal ji, Director CFA BSNL Board, on extension his term as Director CFA BSNL Board and conveyed best wishes for grand success in second term as Director CFA BSNL Board.

As per orders from PSEB endorsed by BSNL the term of his term as Director CFA is extended from 17/10/2023 to 30/09/2026 i.e. till the date of his superannuation retirement. Copy <<<>>

This is very positive step for the overall growth of BSNL as Shri Vivek Banzal ji has taken many initiatives for growth of CFA sector in General and for growth of FTTH network in particular. His spectacular leadership has done wonders for growth of CFA segment and even during period of pandemic Corona also, BSNL was supported by positive growth of FTTH segment. He has been instrumental in successful implementation of many projects in CFA segment and recent feather in his cap was Bharat Udyami Project which has given new life to CFA segment. As he has been highly successful in first term of five years as Director CFA BSNL Board, surely his fresh term as Director CFA BSNL will give strong strength and further positive growth to BSNL in general and CFA Vertical in particular.


Forceful action of DoT for withdrawal of ownership of ALTTC Campus from BSNL: DoT issued letter withdrawing order for status quo in disputed matter of forceful taking over of Prominent, Prime and Prestigious Training Centre of BSNL ALTTC Ghaziabad by DoT for running newly established DoT Training Centre NTIPRIT. Copy <<<>>

This has created mass unrest among all executives and non-executives in BSNL as some officers in DoT are behind taking over this Prestigious and Prominent Training Centre of BSNL by adopting illegal and forceful methods.

It is seen that these officers in DoT are working in systematic manner to defame image of ITS officers working in BSNL with misleading information about the poor maintenance of ALTTC Campus by BSNL and projecting that if DoT takes over this campus, then only ALTTC can be maintained in better way otherwise not.

It is important that ALTTC is also headed by ITS Officer on Deputation and till the officers at DoT are crying foul that ALTTC is not maintained properly and what about this act with such a biased approach.

It is a fact that DoT does not have its own unit for development or maintenance of any Training Centre and earlier DoT was using services of Civil and Electrical wing for the same and now by avoiding services from BSNL, they are using services of CPWD. 

Important point is that except few BSNL recruited DGMs promoted as GMs and some GMs from Civil Electrical wing, there is no officer in BSNL to serve at level of GM/PGM and CGMs i.e. BSNL does not have any its own management and for 23 years of formation of BSNL only ITS Officers from DoT are running BSNL and majority of them are on deputation as majority have strongly opposed proposal by the Government of India for permanent absorption in BSNL.

It means DoT as well as BSNL is managed fully by the ITS officers from DoT and practically BSNL does not have its management except BSNL Board.

As such, all the work at DoT and BSNL are managed by the same ITS officers and there is always dispute among certain officers.

There are excellent ITS officers working in BSNL and DoT also, but only few ITS officers have always created such issues and spoiled the name of others and the same is situation here. We have very high regards for the ITS officers who have and who are rendering their honest and devoted services to BSNL while working in BSNL and even while working at DoT.

Now it seems that the officers working in DoT are unhappy with their ITS brothers in BSNL and hence since last few years they are creating a picture in front of Secretary DoT that their ITS brothers on deputation or absorbed in BSNL have failed in maintaining ALTTC Campus.

From this order it is clear that now also they have been successful in creating picture in the eyes of Secretary DoT that the ITS brothers working in BSNL have failed and the ITS officers can maintain ALTTC in a better way.

Honourable Secretary DoT is new to the working of DoT and it seems that he is being given misleading information about entire activities at ALTTC.

Otherwise how it is possible that BSNL which is having its own Civil/Electrical and Architecture wing to carry out all the works, which has huge experience of construction and maintained of thousands of buildings of BSNL, MTNL and DOT and which has in hand and completed many External Projects for other PSUs, Central Government Departments and State Governments, is not in position to maintain even its own developed Prestigious Training Centre. Such misleading information can be spread and shared by officers who are having a biased approach towards BSNL.

Unfortunately, this biased approach of few ITS officers in DoT towards BSNL and their action to take over BSNL’s land is being projected in News/Print and social media as biased act of the Government of India and it happened during specific period when the Elections for State assembly of four prominent stats were at last stage and polling date was nearing.

All these actions of negative feedback and attempt to grab one more property of BSNL has created a negative image of the Government of India for no direct reason or action from the Government of India. Copy <<<>>

In similar manner, in Year 2010, in such first attempt DoT has already taken over the land of 50.31 Acres from BSNL for developing its own High Class Training Centre with name National Institute for Communication Finance (NICF) and the same has been developed on this place at Ghitorni, New Delhi. Copy <<<>>

This was accepted by BSNL without any resistance and as needed by DoT. But it is understood that this training Centre is specially developed for the Finance wing of DoT where the training for ITS officers of DoT is not being conducted up to the expectations of these few ITS officers or due to   resistance of the officers in the Finance wing of DoT.

These Officers of DoT who could not get space in this Training Centre, and have then constituted a committee consisting of only DoT officers and this committee has recommended that ALTTC campus should be taken over by DoT. Copy <<<>>

In a systematic game plan, a committee of DoT was constituted to decide on land requirements of DoT training Centre and has inspected the entire ALTTC Ghaziabad and have taken decision about land of BSNL.

It is not to our surprise, that in this very important committee to decide on transfer of 81 acres land with well-established Rs 80 Crore valued building and asset on this land of BSNL with market value Rs 6000.00 Crores (in words Six Thousands Crores only), surprisingly no members from BSNL Board or below board level was consulted or asked for their opinion and in one sided action, it has been decided to take over the entire ALTTC campus of 81 Acres by DoT by closing entire ALTTC BSNL and to set new Training Centre of DoT with new name NTIPRIT.  Copy <<<>>

Naturally, DoT being the Government Department and very powerful and having good amount of funds to develop new world class Training Centre, due to some biased officers, entire focus is kept on closure of well-established and world class training Centre of BSNL and attempts are made that DoT is building its own world class training Centre, which is nothing but poor attempt to damage image of BSNL, its officers and  one more attempt to establish that BSNL officers are useless to the extent that they even cannot maintain their training centres and the same officers while in DoT are able to maintain the said training centre when there is no department or unit within DoT to look into Civil/Electrical issues. This is one more indirect attempt to withdraw the works and assets allotted to BSNL and handover the works to CPWD.

In February 2022, DoT has issued one sided order for forceful taking over of ALTTC Campus and the same was kept in abeyance with strong protest by AUAB and status quo order was issued. Copy <<<>>

It was decided that ALTTC and NTIPRIT will continue to function from the same campus and one entire Floor was allotted for NTIPRIT against only maintenance charges and no rent or any other charges are claimed by BSNL. 

Honourable Minister of State Communications Shri. Devusinh  Chauhan ji was aware about the dispute between the of ALTTC Campus and hence during visit of ALTTC on 21/07/2022 has issued clear directions on this subject while addressing combined meeting of officers of ALTTC & NTIPRIT held in Room No 806  that NTIPRIT will build its own building at open space at ALTTC campus and ALTTC will function from present building and hostel and till time of having separate building by NTIPRIT,  both ALTTC and NTIPRIT will continue to function from ALTTC by using present infrastructure. It is unfortunate that the clear directions of Honorable MoSC are also not respected and certain officers continue to grab entire ALTTC and its campus from BSNL.

Thereafter, everything was smooth and activities of both the training Centres i.e. ALTTC and NTIPRIT are in smooth operations. But mean time, new Secretary DoT has taken over the charge and the concerned Officers in DoT have again started their old agenda of taking over ALTTC campus of BSNL and accordingly one Tour of Secretary DoT was arranged to ALTTC where BSNL officers were kept away from this visits and one sided feedback was given to Secretary DoT.

The said officers were successful in projecting Secretary DoT that BSNL is not maintaining the campus properly and DoT has to take over this campus for effective maintenance and developing it through CPWD.

It is understood that DoT has asked CPWD for renovation of ALTTC Hostel for use of ITS officers of DoT who will be joining the training at NTIPRIT, and CPWD has prepared estimate of Rs Nine Crore for repairs and renovation of this Hostel, but has not approved estimate stating that land is not on name of DoT.

It is important that BSNL is making expenditure on Renovation of the Hostels as per requests of the DoT and till now 48 Rooms of J C Bose Hostel and all rooms of Raman Hostel are renovated and are ready with AC accommodations.

Perhaps, all such positive actions by BSNL are not brought to the notice of Secretary DoT and only negative information seems to be given to the new Respected Secretary DoT and accordingly on one sided feedback such based actions are being taken spoiling the name and image of the Government of India.

It is a fact that DoT has given two projects of thousands of Crores to BSNL to provide GSM and FTTH services in rural areas and BSNL is implementing every project of GoI and DoT successfully.

Unfortunately it is being wrongly projected that BSNL is not maintaining its assets at ALTTC Campus only and again issued forceful, illegal, unethical and one sided Presidential Order for forceful taking over of BSNL assets of Rs 6000 Crores at ALTTC Ghaziabad without passing even single rupee benefits to BSNL.

This was protested by all Unions and Associations in BSNL on Platform of AUAB and in response DoT has issued orders for status quo and since then ALTTC BSNL and NTIPRIT DoT are working smoothly in the same campus.

But after the changeover in portfolio of the Secretary DoT, before a few months, the overactive officers in Department of Telecommunication have processed file, a fresh and now DoT has withdrawn status quo order and now directed to hand over the entire ALTTC Campus latest by 17/12/2023.

This is one of the forceful act by some officers in the administrative unit of BSNL and this is the best example of how certain officers in DoT are working against the interest of its own PSU i.e. BSNL.

ALTTC Ghaziabad is one of the Prestigious, Important and Pride Training Centre for BSNL which has till now given and is giving training to lakhs of Executives in BSNL. After the formation of BSNL, the entire property was handed over to BSNL, but the process of transfer of land on name of BSNL is not completed by BSNL in the last 23 years for different reasons. Copy <<<>>

Now DoT has started taking benefits out of pending transfer of lands from DoT to BSNL and till already Netaji Nagar Compound of Delhi has been totally taken over by DoT, tare rather posting few thousand Crores of direct loss to BSNL.

In similar manner, there is notice issues for taking over of BSNL Heritage building Eastern Court, Janpath New Delhi and if such actions are not opposed by tooth and nail, all the properties of BSNL will be taken over by DoT One by One and BSNL will be shown as loss making company as that of MTNL.

We feel that is one more attempt to create unrest among Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL and derail the special and sincere efforts of the Government of India for revival of BSNL. We have to come to this conclusion as there was and is group of officers who were on front line for the formation of PSUs BSNL and MTNL and to send all other officers and staff to these PSUs, but they do not want to join these PSUs and this issue is not settled since last 23 years of formation of BSNL.

By creating such unwanted issues, these officers may be making attempts to establish that whatever may be support given by GoI, BSNL cannot be revived as planned by Hon. MoC and Hon. PMO.  Such attempts have already damaged the working of BSNL and MTNL in the past and such more attempts will cause further loss and damage to BSNL.

As such, there is need to oppose all such biased actions of certain officers of DoT and already this issue has been discussed by leaders of AUAB in online meeting

On this burning and most sensitive issue, online emergency meeting of AUAB leaders and mainly GS of constituent Unions/ Associations was held on 14/11/2023 evening and it has unanimously been decided to pursue this issue seriously and if required agitational call will be given by AUAB after analysing response from DoT to request of AUAB.

Accordingly, AUAB has given a request letter to Secretary DoT requesting for withdrawal of order for taking over of ALTTC Campus by DoT and also asking time for meeting with Secretary DoT to put up our side with supporting documents. Copy <<<>> 

Thereafter leaders of AUAB mainly Shri. Abhimanyu, GS BSNLEU, Shri. M. S. Adasul, GS SNEA, Shri. N.D. Ram, GS SEWA and Shri. Shaji V. GS AIBSNLEA had a meeting with Shri. P.K. Purwar ji CMD BSNL, in presence of Shri Sandip Govil Director HR BSNL Board and expressed our feeling and strong protest against this based action by few officers from DoT and requested to revoke this order. 

Further, Shri. M. S. Adasul, GS SNEA, Shri. N.D. Ram GS SEWA along with other leaders have a meeting with Shri A.K. Sahu, Member Services DoT and registered protest about this one sided action by DoT and requested to revoke this order, cancel the original order for forceful taking over of ALTTC BSNL Campus by DoT.

Time has come to ask DoT to take over entire assets of BSNL along with entire staff and officers of BSNL under Department of Telecommunication and in this case, we will not have any opposition to any such action by DoT. But we cannot be mute spectators of the game plan of transferring only liabilities to BSNL and taking over all assets and properties of thousands of Crores by DoT.

SNEA appeals all the Executives and Non-Executives in BSNL to understand the seriousness of this issue of forceful taking over of BSNL property by certain officer in DoT and how one side we are being fooled on name of financial condition of BSNL and how the few officers in DoT are working in systematic game plan to take over Prominent Assets of BSNL causing direct loss to BSNL and be ready for strong protest of this biased and one sided action if no positive response is received on the request of AUAB.  


AGM Rect. BSNL CO writes to all Circle Heads for e-Verification of data of the registered candidates who have registered for total Six LICEs for which nomination is open in ERP/ESS. Copy <<<>>

The ERP/SAP data may be checked/ verified/ updated from service book of the registered candidates for the particular LICE, as per eligibility particulars mentioned in notified RR, on daily basis.

Though it was planned by Recruitment Cell and expected to hold these LICEs in December 2023, it seems to be difficult due to administrative reasons at IIT conducting this Examination and now it is expected that LICEs will be held in January 2024.

Apart from these Six LICE, the work for online registration for other LICEs where no court cases are pending is under active consideration and hopefully process for DPC for promotions and registration for these LICEs also will be opened for these wings and cadres in coming days.

SNEA is seriously pursuing for holding DPC for JTO to SDE Promotion in Civil and Electrical wing as JTOs in this wing are waiting for their first Promotion for last 23 to 24 years.

First it was reported that LICE preparations are not ready and BSNL want to simultaneously for LICE and SCF and when LICE for other verticals and cadres are notified and registration for same also started, but registration for the LICE for JTO to SDE Promotions in Civil/Electrical wing not yet started by quoting pending court case of Year 2017 at CAT Chandigarh about combined notification issued for LICE of SDE promotions in Civil and Electrical wing.

No LICE was conducted and nothing is pending part of this LICE Notification of 2017, but one case filed during that time is till not cleared and BW unit of BSNL CO has submitted request in court for closure of case as it has lost relevance over the period of last five years.

SNEA is pursuing for clearance of court case and/or starting process for DPC for JTO to SDE Promotions in Civil and Electrical wing without waiting for the reply or there is no stay order in this case.

We are in touch with CGM BW, CGM EW as well as Pers DPC cell and we are hopeful that this DPC process for JTO to SDE Promotions in Civil and Electrical wing will also start shortly.


DGM Pers BSNL CO issued Corrigendum in Recruitment Rules of BSNL Management Services-2023 (Stream Wise) in the field of selection and minimum qualifying service for promotion to AGM/DE and equivalent level.Copy <<<>>

Some individuals and some units were interpreting the regular service as combined service i.e. service in present grade/cadre as well as regular service in earlier grades/ cadres.

Now it is clarified that eligibility service will be counted on of the cadre in which officer concerned is working. e.g. AGM promotions service of only in SDE Regular cadre will be counted and no Regular Service in JTO cadre or SDE Looking after cadre will be added/counted in eligibility service years for AGM Promotions. Same principle is applicable to all the cadres and wings.
