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.

He specially conveyed that he has received lot of feedback from SNEA on different HR issues and it has made him to understand the real issues in field units and conveyed thanks to SNEA for such valuable feedback time to time.

We will like to put on records that as PGM Pers his doors were always open for individuals who were approaching him for redressal of grievances and has always given justice to all genuine requests by individuals.

Though his period of PGM Pers was just one year and four months, he has been instrumental in completing important tasks given by CND BSNL and Director HR BSNL Board viz. SDE to AGM Telecom Promotions, filling of vacant posts till 31/12/2022 of all wings and cadres having no court case pending, MT recruitment and posting, Revision of the Tenure Policy, modifications in Transfer policy for posting on completion of Tenure to CNTX and Territorial Circle, modification of all the MSRRs etc.

He never worked under any pressure and always gave justice well within the BSNL guidelines.

Shri. S.N.

He has never disappointed SNEA and whatever issues we have raised with him were always discussed to depth and thereafter either he convinced us that whatever we have analysed is wrong or he was getting convinced with our stand and taking corrective actions required without any hesitation. He has set best example how one officer at such important position can be unbiased, deeply honest and how one can extend help to BSNL Executives in best possible manner.

With his transfer to DoT, we the executives in BSNL will miss his benign presence in BSNL but as he is delighted by selection at NIT PRIT as per his option, and we convey our best wishes for grand success in this new assignment of his choice.

AGM Pers Policy BSNL CO writes to all Circle Heads clarifying the date of applicability of the revised consolidated Policy for All India Hard/Semi Hard /Soft Tenure station. Copy<<<>>

Due to certain lines added in the revised consolidated guidelines dated 19/09/2023, there was much confusion in the field units and mainly the Officers already working at All India Hard Tenure stations were under tension and fear of extension of their tenure as per revised Policy.

Similar confusion was seen among the Officers working at newly declared all India Semi Hard & Soft Tenure stations and already existing All India Soft Tenure Stations which are now delisted from the list of Soft Tenure Stations.

Immediately on issuing these revised guidelines, SNEA has received many queries/calls and we have made it clear that new guidelines will be effective from the date of issue of the orders and the same also was confirmed from PGM Pers BSNL CO.

Now, the same has been confirmed by this clarification issued by the Pers Policy section and now matter is crystal clear that Officers working at already declared Tenure stations including Officers from soft tenure stations which are delisted now will get request transfers on completion of tenure as per old policy guidelines.

These new guidelines will be applicable to Officers joining the tenure stations from the date of issue of revised consolidated guidelines and tenure of Officers working at the newly declared All India Semi Hard /Soft Tenure stations will be counted from the date of issuing these revised consolidated guidelines and their stay while working earlier to this order will not be counted as tenure period of Semi Hard/Soft Tenure stations.

There are other certain issues in this revised policy and SNEA is consolidating the feedback received from DS/ CS concerned.

We request all CS to send the feedback on this revised policy to Shri. Brelin Isaac, AGS SNEA CHQ latest by 15/11/2023.  

We will take a fresh call on all such issues created due to revised Transfer policy guidelines for Tenure stations and we are hopeful for getting required changes in this revised policy. 


AGM Pers BSNL CO writes to all Circle Heads Purification of stay particulars of the working Officers to update the career history / stay particulars of the Officers in ERP of all those Officers whose circle stay is greater than 18 years in first phase and compliance by 16/11/2023.  Copy<<<>>

As per this letter and as we have observed there are many issues noticed after issuing long stay transfers in the last two years due to wrong stay particulars and mainly stay of Officers working at All India Soft Tenure was not correctly updated.

Earlier officers in the Pers Section took stand that the data is correct as they have extracted it from ESS but with projection of factual position, it was later accepted for required corrections of data and modification of the orders issued as per the wrong data.

SNEA has always taken stand for no transfers for name sake transfers and continuously pursued for not issuing mass long stay transfers and the same has not been accepted by Management.

It is unfortunate that management has wrong feedback/understanding that all SDEs/ AGMs/ DGMs are working at the same place for life long when it is fact that except few all these officers have undergone more than three transfers within the Circle.

We are further pursuing for not issuing long stay transfers which has no way benefitted BSNL but has been reason for unwanted and avoidable disturbance to hundreds of Officers and their family members and also it has adverse impact on the working of many Circles.

No doubt, this letter is a step forward towards preparations for issuing long stay transfers and we all will have to take firm call on it.

SNEA has already taken up certain issues related to long stay transfers and as first step the Officers from All India Soft Tenure were excluded by counting their stay correctly, then the Officers working at All India hard Tenure stations are excluded from the Inter Circle Transfers, retention for educational grounds of 12th STD Ward, genuine medical ground cases etc and we are thankful to Management for understanding our concern and responding positively.  

Till now we have pursed with all concerned officers including CMD BSNL and we will definitely take a fresh call for review and to stop mass and general long stay transfers and if not possible to stop all long stay transfer, then to limit it to meet the shortages of the Officers in the Circles/BAs having acute shortage of Executives.

We are and will be also pursuing for not transferring the Officers under long stay from the Circles having acute shortage of officers.   

We are also pursuing for the exclusion of names of female Officers from Inter Circle Long stay transfers as many of female Officers have faced extreme difficulties due to inter Circle Long stay transfers. 

We strongly believe that if Management has money to spend on mass long stay transfers, there should not be any scarcity of funds for extending facilities like enhanced Mobile Handset reimbursement limit, extending laptop policy, restoring LTC facility, payment of GTT/GHI premium, revised TA/DA etc.   

We are hopeful for kind consideration of our requests by CMD BSNL as Head of BSNL family and till time we request all our esteemed members and leaders to share their views and feedback to DS/CS concerned.

DS/CS SNEA will in turn send consolidated details to Shri. Vimal Raghunath, AGS SNEA CHQ for consolidating these views and feedback so as to pursue this critical issue related to long stay transfers directly affecting the office working and family life of each and every officer in BSNL. Let us hope for the best.

Though these vacancies were available for the last one year, and dates in the calendar for DPC were crossed, no initiatives were taken and SNEA has brought matter to the notice of CMD BSNL and we were informed that delay is due to issues in issuing LICE notification.

To avoid further delay in promotions and by understanding the date of eligibility for next promotions as on 1st of January every year, we have requested for early DPC for all vacancies till year 2023 so that all can be promoted before 01/01/2024.

We have requested CMD BSNL for conducting DPCs through SCF quota by diverting posts of LICE Quota for the executives eligible for LICE of vacancies as on 01/01/2023, but our repeated requests are not given consideration by saying LICE is required to bring meritocracy in BSNL.

As per the stand taken by BSNL Management, to avoid disputes and court cases, the DPC for SCF quota and LICE Quota are to be conducted and accordingly DPCs for these Posts will be held in December 2023.

We are also pursuing promotions for other posts and wings which are pending due to court cases and we are hopeful for conduction of DPCs for remaining posts also by Dec 2023.

Though date is not yet finalized it is understood that LICE for these Examinations will be held in the second week of December 2023 through IIT Guwahati and formal and exact dates for these LICEs will be announced shortly.

The meeting with Hon. MOC started with the thanks note by SNEA to Hon. MoC for the Rs 1.64 lakh Crore Revival Package. BSNL. At the outset we conveyed thanks for the extraordinary efforts by Hon. MoC and Government of India over the period for revival of BSNL and updated that the support extended by GoI has made a lot of changes in working of BSNL which are clearly visible in day to day activities of office working.

Hon. MoC asked where the changes are seen in overall working or we are just sharing it for praising him. We informed that there are many changes and improvements in the overall working of BSNL and efforts are visible in terms of upgradation of Infrastructure and improved network uptime. We added that the changes are visible at many places and we are hopeful for similar changes all over India as CMD BSNL is continuously monitoring its progress.

We also conveyed thanks to Hon. MoC for his initiatives by conducting different public meetings and promoting BSNL services and mainly clarifying the doubts about BSNL services and special efforts for systematic improvement in BSNL services.

We especially appreciated the stand taken by Hon MoC in a recent public meeting on manufacturing and testing of indigenous 4G Equipment of which a video has been viral about the stability & reliability of 4G indigenous equipment is viral on social media. Such actions and initiatives have given much confidence about 4G indigenous equipment to the public of India and they are eagerly waiting for the launching of BSNL 4G services.

We conveyed that we executives of BSNL are highly motivated by the act of Hon. MoC by expressing concern about improving BSNL services with quote for change in BSNL services from Bhai Sahab Nahi Lagata to Bhai Sahab Naya Lagega and such comments from Hon. MoC has really changed the public approach and opinion about BSNL services. Thereafter we have very elaborate and detailed discussions on different issues as detailed below.

Objectives of SNEA as only Recognised Majority Association in BSNL: The detailed meeting started with introduction of all participants and Hon. MoC specifically took update on office working and contribution of everyone and was pleased to see active involvement of the SNEA team in BSNL activities.

Hon. MoC also has also taken update information about SNEA and its working. We have updated that SNEA is association in existence since 1946 and is now working fully for growth and development of BSNL. We explained how SNEA has taken stand to support initiatives of GoI through CMD BSNL for revival of BSNL and how SNEA keeps approach to resolve the issues through pursuation with BSNL management and respecting support of GoI to BSNL, no agitational call is given by SNEA even though some genuine issues are not resolved.

Hon MoC appreciated our approach and the way in which the association has come forward for the growth of BSNL.

We shared the details about the historic achievement of SNEA and its alliance partners in the recently held third Membership verification and how SNEA has got historical support of 53% Votes.

We conveyed that during MV campaign meetings we have seen that the efforts of Hon MoC and Government of India for revival of BSNL are appreciated and accepted by executives in BSNL and revival of BSNL was one of the agenda of third MV campaigning.

We shared that as the only Recognised Majority Association in BSNL, and with such huge responsibility with us, we are duty bound to resolve the pending issues. We narrated that many issues are being taken care of by CMD BSNL and certain issues beyond the powers of CMD BSNL and hence BSNL Board needs kind intervention of Hon. MoC.

We also narrated about the negativity being spread about affiliation of BSNL executives to particular political parties and clarified the doubts. We briefed that SNEA is not affiliated to any political party as the same is restricted being Government Servants and the constitution of SNEA does not permit any affiliation till 4/5th of total executives support the proposal of affiliation. But we the leaders and members of SNEA are highly impressed with the changes in approach of GoI towards BSNL and requested for similar change in approach towards the executives in BSNL. We informed that the main objective of our association is Growth of BSNL and benefits and betterment of executives in BSNL. We also added that being executives of PSUs having 100% stake with Government of India, we strongly believe that all genuine issues of BSNL Executives will be properly addressed and resolved with kind intervention of Hon. MoC and support of the Government of India.

Hon. MoC gave us patience hearing to our say and in response congratulated for Victory of SNEA and directed us to use this huge mandate for growth and development of BSNL. He specifically mentioned the need for improved quality of services with the approach of Customer is king and the members of Majority Association has huge responsibility for bringing such changes in work culture.

Mission of Hon. PM of India: Hon MoC updated us about the mission by Hon. Modi ji for Atmnirbhar Bharat and expectations from BSNL. It is the mission of Hon PM to make India self-dependent in manufacturing world class GSM Equipment in India and generation of Jobs within India. Though this was a difficult task as many of the developed countries have failed in manufacturing GSM Equipment, under the keen watch of Hon PM India, our country has come up with Indigenous GSM Equipment. This Indigenous equipment is highly tested and in the coming days it will be exported to other countries. While exporting Equipment, it will be first exported to developed countries and its wide acceptance will definitely increase demand of Indigenous 4G/5G Equipment.

BSNL Strategic Partner of GoI: Hon. MoC informed that BSNL is strategic partner of Government of India and hence all possible support is being extended to BSNL. Now, BSNL has to play a very important role in different missions of GoI viz Digital India, 4G Saturation project, Bharat Udyami Projects etc and specially advised us to come forward with all out efforts to complete these projects. He desired association to become part of these projects and see that these projects are completed in a time bound manner and clear message is given by actions of employees of BSNL and customers should feel that BSNL has changed and is changing with support extended by GoI. We responded that we have understood the importance and all executives in BSNL are putting their efforts in achieving targets and we will pass on the message to each and every executive of BSNL.

Stability and Financial Viability of BSNL: On stability and financial viability of BSNL, Hon. MoC informed that Government of India has taken firm stand for No Disinvestment of BSNL and BSNL will continue to be PSU with its 100% ownership with Government of India with mission to make BSNL a profit making PSU by Year 2027. In the coming days, BSNL will become as a self-dependent and stable PSU in the Telecom sector. He firmly assured that Executives of BSNL should not worry about it and keep focus on their duties. He assured that as of now the matter of BSNL survival is over and BSNL will flourish in coming days and expect a similar approach by executives in giving quality services to customers. We elaborated that we are facing issues due to non-availability of 4G GSM Services to compete with private telecom operators and with launching of 4G services Pan India, BSNL will be in competition of data services in Telecom sector and it will be a game changer. 

Use of 4G/5G Indigenous Equipment in India: Hon MoC informed that Indigenous 4G Equipment be upgraded to 5G GSM is being supplied to only BSNL and it has been put in use in Punjab Circle on pilot basis and shortly it will be expanded all over India. The testing of these Equipment has been highly successful to tune that in normal course Equipment if handle the One Lakh calls at a time it is said to be passed the quality Test. But the Indigenous 4G Equipment has been successfully tested for One Crore calls at time and hence there will not be much issues when these equipment is put in use on Pan India. But till the testing is going on as its stability in connectivity with the existing network of BSNL is to be accessed before formal launch and the same is also at final stage.

Pressure to Stop Indigenous GSM Equipment Manufacturing by Government of India: Hon. MoC shared that there was much pressure and different offers from Manufactures of GSM Equipment to stop Indigenous GSM Equipment Manufacturing by India, but it has been firmly decided by Hon. PM Shri. Modiji to go ahead with self-dependency of India and in coming days India will be one of very few and prominent Exporter of 4G & 5G GSM Equipment. Hon MoC also informed that with high quality successful testing of one Crore simultaneous calls and developments in 5G, India will be in position to export BSNL 4G/5G to UK, US and similar developed countries. On wide acceptance of the quality and uses of GSM equipment, the same will be exported to other under developed or developing countries and this mission will add good revenue for BSNL. Earlier even handset was not manufactured in India and now GSM equipment, which was a monopoly of a few companies and countries, is being manufactured by India and will be exported in days to come.

Launching of Pan India & Full-fledged 4G GSM services by BSNL: We requested Hon MoC for starting early 4G GSM services by BSNL. Hon MoC responded that he is keen on it and now it is time to launch 4G services by BSNL on PAN India basis. Hon. MoC declared that BSNL 4G services will be inaugurated by the Hon Prime Minister of India during this Diwali Festival and in step by step manner, the entire network of BSNL will be the 4G Network and very shortly 4G services will be provided by BSNL all over India.

Upgradation of BSNL Network to 5G Network: We narrated that other operators are providing 5G services and to meet the competition in Telecom Market it is required that BSNL also should provide 5G services. Hon. MoC informed that 3G and 4G GSM Network of BSNL will be upgraded to 5G Network and it is proposed that after stability of 4G Indigenous equipment in overall GSM network, from 15th August 2024 onwards the entire 4G equipment will be upgraded to 5G Equipment as the 4G Indigenous equipment is compatible to be upgraded to 5G with some software changes. With pan India 4G and 5G services, BSNL will be in position to compete with Private Telecom Operators as BSNL is given the highest spectrum which will keep BSNL in the tough competition in speed of data services.

Stand on Continuation of existing 2G GSM Network: Hon. MoC informed that the 2G BTS will continue to work in BSNL network till some time more as it has special demand. There are certain issues of integration of 2G BTS and technical teams are working on it. All the 3G BTS will be upgraded/replaced to 4G Indigenous GSM Equipment. Depending on the outcome of integration of existing 2G BTS with Indigenous GSM Equipment, final call will be taken on continuation or scrapping of 2G BTSs in BSNL network.

Target for addition of Customer base of BSNL: Hon. MoC informed that with the launching of 4G services by BSNL all over India, BSNL has to meet the challenge of increasing its customer base from existing 7 Crore customers to 10 Crore Customer base and the final target is increasing the overall customer base of BSNL to 20 Crore. Hon. MoC specially conveyed us to see that BSNL executives gear up for increasing the customer base by reaching out to the public and offering very polite and customer centric services. Hon MoC added that Customer is God for us and customer satisfaction should be the ultimate motive of BSNL and its executives. Hon MoC emphasised that BSNL 4G/5G services will be a great opportunity to BSNL for the addition of customer base and it can be achieved with sincere efforts of each executive. Once BSNL again gains the confidence of Public, Customer, the growth of BSNL will be exponential. We responded that Ten Crore Customer base is a huge target but it can be achieved with BSNL 4G/5G Services and Bharat Udyami Project and we the executives in BSNL under valuable guidance of CMD BSNL will put in all our efforts for achieving these high targets. Hon MoC informed that he will be monitoring these targets and will also support BSNL by issuing directions for utilising BSNL 4G/5G Services for all Officers /staff of Railway and other Government Offices so that BSNL will be meet Targets of Ten Crore connections by BSNL, and appealed to executives to provide quality services and 24X 7 services to these customers.

Improvement in MTNL GSM services in Delhi and Mumbai: During discussions on the need for the improvement in Telecom services at Economic capital of India, Mumbai and the political capital of India, Delhi, Hon. MoC informed that these services are to be maintained by BSNL and already works have been handed over to BSNL. We updated that though some GSM works are transferred to BSNL till the maintenance of GSM and all other services is done by MTNL only and there is no much involvement of BSNL. MTNL is facing a huge shortage of manpower and there are issues of extension of existing AMC and even in BSNL/MTNL offices also there are issues in GSM services. Hon. MoC immediately directed concerned officers telephonically to take review of the maintenance of GSM services in MTNL area and made it clear that BSNL has to maintain the services in the MTNL area. He added that the ongoing issues due to old Equipment will be resolved by replacing these Equipment by Indigenous GSM Equipment and very shortly the changes in GSM and other telecom services in Mumbai and Delhi will be visible.

Continuation of MTNL and its future: During discussions Hon MoC asked us our opinion on continuation of loss making MTNL as a separate PSU. We responded that there is scope for business in the MTNL area and the services need to be provided to the customers and hence MTNL services may be continued. Hon MoC expressed concern over the poor services and there is need of improvement which will happen with its merger with BSNL. We said that it is understood that in the proposal of merger of MTNL with BSNL earlier an option was available for continuation in MTNL, but the same has been withdrawn later. Hon. MoC informed that it is not a matter of option, but he is really worried about the continued losses made by MTNL and his ministry is ascertaining all possibilities of continuation of MTNL services, but the same seems to be difficult. Hon. MoC added his office welcomes suggestions for improvement of MTNL and its services. In conclusion Hon. MoC assured that some concrete decision will be taken on Telecom services in MTNL area but stressed that BSNL will have to take lead in providing services in MTNL area as chances of closure of loss making MTNL are more.

Deputation of Officers in BSNL: We have brought to notice of Hon. MoC about promotion of BSNL officers and those who have not opted for BSNL in earlier days are now promoted against BSNL posts and posted as seniors to the then senior officers absorbed in BSNL. Hon MoC asked us our stand on deputation of ITS officers from DoT in BSNL. We informed that ITS officers who are willing to work in BSNL may be allowed to continue in BSNL and who want to go back to DoT may be permitted to go back and no unwilling officer should be forcefully retained in BSNL on deputation. We requested that the officers in BSNL who are senior to similarly placed officers on Deputation may be given consideration for promotion over the officers on Deputation. We quoted that last year some DGM level officers are deputed to BSNL who are juniors to DGMs/AGMs working in BSNL, but the officers who are absorbed in BSNL are not given promotion and this is the reason for mass unrest among absorbed officers.  We also added that the willing ITS officers on deputation, Absorbed ITS Officers in BSNL and Officers recruited for senior management of BSNL can take care of issues of BSNL with good spirit and unwilling officers creates negative impact on working of BAs and Circles. Hon. MoC responded that there is need to have its own management of BSNL and steps are being taken in this direction so that deputation can be stopped in the coming days. He informed that BSNL has already taken up some steps in this direction and further required steps will be taken in coming days.

Involvement of BSNL Absorbed/Recruited officers in Policy making of BSNL: We have drawn attention of Hon MoC towards the fact that since formation of BSNL i.e. last 23 years have been passed, but till the overall control of framing BSNL Policies for executives in BSNL is in hands of Officers on deputation. There are many ITS Officers who have opted and absorbed in BSNL and BSNL has recruited certain officers who have reached to GM/PGM level but no one is given opportunity to lead the team which is framing Policies for executives of BSNL. Hence about all policies are framed in the interest of officers on deputation and against the interest of officers absorbed in BSNL or recruited by BSNL. This is one of reasons for unrest among executives as this one sided approach has badly affected career progression of BSNL Recruited and Absorbed officers and even absorbed ITS officers are sufferers of one sided policy framing. We also narrated that there is unrest among absorbed officers of similar level as the Salary of officers on deputation is double than the officers absorbed/recruited in BSNL who are having the same rather higher responsibilities. We requested for positioning and involvement of BSNL Absorbed /Recruited officers in framing policies for BSNL Executives as whole. After elaborate discussions on these issues Hon MoC assured to look into it and see what best can be done on this front.

Upgradation of BSNL network by utilising BBNL network: We have added that the merger of BBNL has added many works to BSNL and there is need of utilisation of BBNL infrastructure for providing services till GPs. Hon MoC informed that it is a strategic decision of amalgamation of BBNL with BSNL and it will have a very positive impact on growth of Telecom sector specifically in Rural area. We responded that our executives are taking care of all the issues related to BBNL services by the special presence of our executives even at SDCA level and reaching to the remotest need of telecom services. Hon MoC informed that this is the mission under Digital India project by the Government led by Hon. Modji and Executives in BSNL should make it highly successful.

Promotion of all the eligible executives by Restoring justified posts: We have drawn attention of Hon MoC towards the fact that the promotions in BSNL are held up for years together and many eligible executives are waiting for even their first promotion after 24 years of service and this is reason for unrest among the executives. Hon. MoC informed that till BSNL gets financial stability, keep aside all the promotions as its financial impact will derail the BSNL revival process. We have elaborated that the promotions in BSNL are much delayed and its implementation at this stage will not have any financial impact on performance of BSNL as even a single rupee will not be added in the salary of Executives promoted. But issuing promotions of eligible officers will definitely be morale boosting and motivating for the executives in BSNL and it will be helpful in achieving the high targets of 4G Saturation Project and Bharat Udyami Project. We appreciated and congratulated Hon MoC for his initiatives to promote thousands of officers in Railways and requested him for similar action in BSNL for pending promotions. Hon. MoC informed that officers in Railways have given excellent performance wherein railways got Profit of Rs 1 Lakh Crore. With such exemplary performance only thousands of promotions happened in Railways as reward. He added that the officers in BSNL will also have to perform in similar manner to achieve the target assigned and firmly assured to pass on all the due benefits including promotions to BSNL Officers. We expressed how BSNL officers are serving customers in extreme conditions and even by making office expenses from their pockets with such great support from Hon MoC and GoI, we are always ready for putting special efforts to achieve targets assigned by DoT/GoI. After understanding the concern expressed by us, Hon. MoC assured to take review of promotions in BSNL and to ascertain possibilities of all possible promotions of the executives in BSNL. Hon. MoC firmly assured that he will see that the opportunities for promotions in BSNL are increased to such a level that even JTO recruited by BSNL will have the opportunity to reach the post of CMD BSNL. He added that at this stage it may look like the dream but it will surely become reality in the coming days.  

Implementation of Upgraded Standard Pay Scales: We have drawn attention of Hon MoC on the burning issue of Pay loss per month due to downgrading of Pay scales for JTOs/JAOs by DoT. The case has been strongly recommended by BSNL but DoT has not agreed to the concerns expressed by BSNL. There are many guidelines which are supporting this demand but there is no consideration given by DoT. When BSNL proposed for upgradation of Upgradation of Intermediate Pay Scales of JTOs/JAOs from E1A to E2, and DoT has downgraded pay scales from E1A to E1 and due to this about 15000 Executives out of total 30000 Executives are facing loss of Rs 10 to 15 thousands every month.  Hon MoC was of the opinion that such issues will definitely cause additional financial burden on BSNL and this issue can be discussed after some positive growth by BSNL. We elaborated that this is long pending issues for which BSNL executives are waiting for years together and it has no much or huge financial implications as being projected. We elaborated that GoI has given package of Rs 1.64 Lakh Crore and for implementation of Upgraded Standard Pay scales only Rs 100 Crore will be required by BSNL per year and DoT has not to bear even single rupee as all the beneficiaries are BSNL recruited JTOs and hence there is no pension burden to DoT. Hon. MoC responded that Rs 100 Crore is not a big issue but at this particular time, one has to think on adding any financial burden on BSNL. We elaborated that resolution of this issue affecting 50% of total executives will definitely motivate the JTOs/JAOs who are directly contributing in field units for growth of BSNL. Implementation of Standard Pay Scales  will be supportive action in achieving the Targets assigned under Bharat Udyami Project and 4G Saturation Project and in no way, it will be burden for BSNL. We also narrated that there are many JTOs/JAOs who are facing more pay loss for no mistake on their part and requested for timely resolution of this very important and critical issue of BSNL Executives. After elaborate discussions, on this issue Hon. MoC directed us to give a brief note on this issue along with supporting documents and assured us to look into it. Hon. MoC specially mentioned that once BSNL reaches the figure of 10 Crores Customer base, all such issues will be given consideration and directed us to convey message to executives in BSNL to put their all out efforts in growth of BSNL and firmly assured about settlement of all such financial pending dues of BSNL Executives.

Implementation of 3rd PRC to BSNL Executives: We have put forth how with failure of negotiations of the 3rd PRC implementation with then Hon MoC, the executives in BSNL are suffering and compelled to work during year 2023 at the salary of Year 2007. We added that BSNL has been in operation profit for the last three consecutive years and will continue to be a profit making entity as per the mission given by GoI. We expressed that BSNL is a strategic Partner of GoI and has to provide services to each and every corner of India. In such services, BSNL has to bear the loss and it is obvious. One side BSNL is compelled to give services without much thinking on profit and other side we executives in BSNL are denied the third PRC implementation by quoting such loss. We added that due to pay scales of 2007, each and every executive is facing stagnation and even a single routine increment is not available for the majority of Executives including senior officers in BSNL management and this is the reason for mass unrest among BSNL Executives. We appealed to Hon MoC for looking into issues affecting each and every executive and non-executive in BSNL. Hon MoC informed that he is aware of this issue and assured to implement third PRC in BSNL, but as per financial conditions of BSNL as of now it is difficult. But with the launching of 4G services there will be much addition of customer base in BSNL and any such additional financial burden can be looked into once BSNL earns profit from its operation. He directed us to meet the target of 10 Crore customer base for BSNL and be ready for implementation of third PRC. Hon MoC added that if BSNL could cross these targets suitably his office will surely think on implementation of third PRC higher fitment formula also. Hon MOC added that only required at this stage is selfless contribution of Executives of BSNL to meet the target of 10 Crore Customer base and every demand including this important demand of third PRC implementation will be taken care by his office.

Arresting Brain Drain out of BSNL: We have narrated that due to heavy financial losses in pay, lack of promotional opportunities, many of JTOs/JAOs recruited by BSNL are leaving BSNL and joining at other Govt organisations and even in Private institutions as about 4 to 5 JTOs/SDEs are opting for VR every month and there is need of some concrete action on part of BSNL and DoT to stop Brain drain. We specifically narrated that BSNL is recruiting highly qualified GATE qualified JTOs and not giving the desired salary as mentioned in RR Notifications for recruitment of these JTOs/JAOs. These are very talented JTOs/JAOs of BSNL with vast experience of the Telecom sector and feeling demotivated and cheated due to reduced salary. Hon. MOC agreed to the concern expressed by us and emphasised that GATE qualified Officers should get their due salaries. Hon MOC assured to look into reasons for brain drain from BSNL and to explore the talent of these officers for growth of BSNL. Hon. MoC was optimistic that in the coming days the working atmosphere in BSNL will be changed to such an extent that there will be no brain drain from BSNL but there will be an inward trend for joining BSNL. Hon. MoC specially added that the successful and timely implementation of 4G GSM projects, Bharat Udyami Projects by BSNL will create many opportunities to Executives in BSNL and firmly assured to have some concrete steps viz. creating promotional opportunities in BSNL. Hon MoC was firm on making an attractive package in BSNL so as to retain the existing expertise and attract the talent from the Market.

Hon. MoC directed us to take pursuation of all the issues discussed with his PS at Delhi and submit the required representations and documents in support of issues raised by Association.

Delinking of Pension revision and Pension revision of retired officers of BSNL: We conveyed thanks to Hon MoC for responding positively to demand of SNPWA and other associations of retired officers for delinking of Pension revision from BSNL pay revision. Hon MOC informed that the leaders of retired officer associations have pursued with his office and he had different meetings with them and issue of delinking Pension from Pay revision has been decided by his office. We also requested for similar action for Pension Revision with suitable fitment formula. Hon. MoC informed that the proposal for Pension Revision is also under consideration and after completing formalities at DoT, same has been sent to DPE for further concurrence and firmly assured for positive resolution of both the issues. 

In conclusion of this very fruitful and highly successful special meeting held for about 55 minutes, Hon. MoC specially directed us to keep eagle eye on the target of Ten Crore customer base for BSNL and be ready for getting due benefits of BSNL Executives. Hon. MoC made it clear that present revival package is the last revival package given to BSNL and if employees of BSNL do not reciprocate it, then no new revival package will be given to BSNL and hence all employees should give their best for growth of BSNL.

Hon MoC firmly assured for continued support to BSNL and directed us to give timely feedback on issues related to growth and development of BSNL. Hon MoC given clear message that Customer is GOD and all employees of BSNL should treat them as GOD and only customer centric approach can save BSNL.

Hon. MoC specially reminded us that after launching 4G/5G services 10 Crore Connection should be the first target and assured that on achieving this target of 10 Crore Connection, maximum issues of BSNL Employees will get resolved. After 10 Crore connections second target will to achieved 20 Crore connection and on its success every demand of Executives including future demands of BSNL executives will be given consideration.

We conveyed sincere thanks for sparing much valuable time by Hon MoC and valuable guidance for future action plan of BSNL and assured to stand behind him and Government of India by all means in achieving all targets assigned to BSNL including final mission of making BSNL as profit making PSU by 2027.

In overall discussions and guidance, we have seen Hon. MOC in very affirmative about continued support to BSNL and was quite optimistic for overall growth of BSNL out of revival package and about good future of BSNL and its executives.
