Meeting with Shri S P Tripathi, DIR(CM&HR) on 23.07.2019: GS, President and AGS met DIR(CM&HR) and held discussions on:

1) Arranging fund for meeting the OPEX and CAPEX: We appraised the ground realities in the field units where the works are largely affected due to fund shortage. Since services are started affecting, hundreds of connections are getting closed every day which will have serious impact on the revenue in the coming days. Director also shared our view and informed that efforts are going on for getting bank loan to tide over the situation temporarily. The response from the Bankers meeting on last friday was positive.

2) Promotions in different cadres and notification of CPSU Hierarchy for bringing uniformity and parity in promotions: We expressed our serious concern for not getting any promotion orders. In the name of court cases and contempt, no promotion is taking place for the last one year, further demoralising the Executives. As a solution to this situation, BSNL Board approved the new promotion policy but BSNL is not implementing it for the reasons known to the management alone. It is doubted that mgt is not implementing it as it is more beneficial to the Executives and the Executives will get timely promotion. Director assured to work out on this for giving due promotions at the earliest. On DGM promotion, actions are taken to file the MA at Hon CAT, CDG.

3) Stopping the proposed move of reversion of SDEs promoted in 2008 through LDCE: We explained the issue and requested Director to review the decision for reversion and not to revert the eligible JTOs of 2001 batch.

4) Wrong implementation of Perquisite Tax: We cited the IT provisions, f IT Tribunal, Indore orders on the subject and the instructions issued by IT Department exempting Perquisite Tax for the accommodation provided by another CPSU, HMT Ltd to justify our demand that Perquisite Tax is not applicable for the Quarters allotted to BSNL employees. Director assured to take appropriate action.

5) Pending request transfers: We requested to clear all the pending request transfers, including the shortage Circles. Executives are posted to the shortage Circles on the assurance that they will be given transfer after completion of 2 years. Director assured to clear the request transfers.

Our continuous persuasion with BSNL Management, DoT, Hon Minister and Hon Prime Minister for arranging funds getting momentum:

On last Friday, 19.07.2019, different bankers had a meeting with BSNL management for arranging loan for BSNL. As a follow up action, a meeting being held at DoT today, 22.07.2019 with the bankers, chaired by Secretary DoT. CMD BSNL made a detailed presentation to the bankers. BSNL and Govt is impressing upon the bankers about the BSNL revival plan and the urgent need for loan.

SNEA drawn the attention of the Govt at various level by taking up the issue with Secretary/DoT, Hon Telecom Minster and finally at the highest level of Govt by writing to the Hon Prime Minister on 15.07.2019 for facilitating immediate loan to BSNL for meeting the expenditure towards OPEX and CAPEX, till revival package is implemented.

Meeting with Sri Arun Kumar, PGM(Pers) on 22.07.2019: GS, President and both AGSs met PGM (Pers) and held discussions on:

1) Stopping the proposed move of reversion of SDEs promoted in 2008 through LDCE: We informed PGM (Pers) that JTOs of 2001 batch are eligible as per the provisions of RR and the clarifications issued by BSNLCO to different Circles during the notification of LDCE. Since BSNL declared them eligible, it is the responsibility of BSNL to protect their promotion also. The subsequent clarification issued after the conduction of the LDCE should be applicable prospectively, not retrospectively, we told. SNEA also drawn the attention of PGM about the earlier instances SNEA taken up the issue and the stopping of reversion on earlier occasions. Since they are already promoted as SDEs, they could not appear for subsequent LDCEs conducted by BSNL, sealing their future. PGM informed that BSNL is interested to protect them and will try to help them but it is a court verdict.

2) DGM (T) promotion: The MA is filed at Hon CAT, CDG. It is expected to listed for hearing this week.

3) Pending request transfers: PGM assured to clear the request transfer which are forwarded through proper channel.

Urgent need for speedy revival of BSNL by facilitating short term bank loan or soft loan for BSNL for meeting urgent requirement for OPEX / CAPEX, 4G spectrum allotment, permission for land monetization and payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay which will improve the cash flow. Implementation of 3rd PRC for BSNL employees as recommended by the Premier Consultant, IIM (Ahmadabad) as part of revival for BSNL is very significant for revival of BSNL. If the decision is delayed by another 2 to 3 months, it will be too late as BSNL network may deteriorate beyond repair/revival, making revival impossible.... GS writes to Hon. Prime minister of India.
