Contempt case relating to repatriation ITS in Honble HC of Delhi:

DOT came under scathing fire from Honble HC of Delhi for its blatant and deliberate violation of the Judgement of Honble High Court regarding repatriation of ITS. Honble HC severely reprimanded and came down heavily on the counsel appearing for DOT for its naked manipulations in implementing the judgement of HC.

Honble Court, short of passing a formal order for breach and contempt of its Judgement delivered by Honble High Court in March, 2012 regarding repatriation of ITS, came very close to terming the actions of DOT as amounting to contempt of Court. At one point of time, the Honble bench asked DOTs counsel to immediately and personally summon Secy/DOT to the Court to explain the conduct and actions of DOT in completely breaching implementation of the Judgement of the Court and persistently misleading the Court regarding its implementation.

However, after painstaking pleadings and explanation by DOTs counsel and his assurances to the Honble Court that necessary corrective actions would be initiated towards implementation of the judgement in letter and spirit, the matter was posted to 5th March, 2015. What is extremely important is that Honble High Court felt completely convinced and satisfied, after detailed arguments by counsel of SNEA(I), that DOT has perpetrated  clear breach of Judgement amounting to contempt. The stand of this Association towards ITS repatriation is undoubtedly getting vindicated.

Meeting with CMD/BSNL:
CHQ President along with both AGSs met CMD and apprised him in detail on the need of BSNL to get impleaded in Supreme Court on 3G ICR roaming issue on which Supreme Court has admitted SLP of DOT and issued notices to Airtel, Vodafone and Idea. We reminded CMD that SNEA took the first step of filing a writ petition in Delhi High court in Nov 2010 challenging 3G ICR roaming pacts on the ground that such illegitimate pacts were forbidden by policy and directly jeopardized business interests of BSNL in 3G segment. Only after WP of SNEA was admitted by Delhi High Court and notices were issued to DOT by High Court did DOT issue notices to Airtel, Vodafone and Idea asking them to stop providing of 3G services in areas where they did not have spectrum and license through illegal ICR roaming pacts.
We informed CMD that BSNL should get impleaded in the case now in Supreme Court to defend its 3G business interests which were encroached upon illegitimately by Airtel, Vodafone and Idea through ICR pacts and seek appropriate compensation for huge losses that 3G business of BSNL suffered due to such illegitimate 3G pacts and breach of policy. We also apprised CMD that DOT would only seek imposition of penalties on Airtel, Vodafone and Idea because of blatant breach of policy and will not raise the issue of huge losses suffered by BSNL. The issues of losses suffered by BSNL because of breach of policy would have to quantified and raised by BSNL only. After detailed discussion, CMD, while appreciating our concern and stand, asked us to have further discussions with director(CM) regarding BSNL getting impleaded in Supreme court. However, Association is seriously considering of getting impleaded in Supreme Court in SLP filed by DOT challenging judgement of TDSAT allowing providing of 3G services through ICR pacts.

Meeting with Member Services/DOT: CHQ President along with both AGSs met M(S)/DoT and apprised him in detail on the issue of pension contribution by BSNL to Govt. M(S) was informed that BSNL in accordance to the orders of DOP&T needs to pay pension contribution to Govt. on actual basic pay, not on maximum of scale. In this connection, we cited the letter of DOP&T addressed to GS/SNEA(I) wherein it is adequately clarified by DOP&T that BSNL must pay pension contribution on actual basic as is being done by other Central Govt. Departments. We informed M(S) of our discussions with concerned officers in DOP&T and DOP&PW on this issue and their stand that BSNL like other Central Govt. Departments has to pay pension contribution on actual basic instead of on maximum of scale as is being done as of now. We requested M(S) of his intervention in sending the issue to DOP&T to obtain their views. M(S), while stating that he was not aware of the issue, assured that he would examine the issue and take further action.

Meeting with Member(Finance)/DOT: CHQ President and both the AGSs have had very heated exchange of views with M(F)/DOT on the issue of pension contribution by BSNL on actual basic, instead of on maximum that BSNL is being forced to pay by DOT. We told M(F) in very clear terms that this Association completely disagrees with her perception that BSNL make pension contribution on maximum of scale. The stand of DOT in forcing BSNL to make pension contribution on maximum of scale is arbitrary and in total contravention of letter written by DOP&T to GS/SNEA(I). We also informed M(F) about the positive stand of the concerned officers in DOP&T on the issue and their concrete assurances that once the matter is referred to DOP&T by DOT, DOP&T would take a very positive view in keeping with its orders of 2009.
However, M(F) maintained that unless DOP&T directly conveys to  DOT its stand on pension contribution by BSNL, DOT would not take further action and refer the matter to DOP&T for further clarification. However, after further discussions, M(F) finally agreed to consider referring the matter to DOP&T for further clarification if the issue is referred to DOT by BSNL management.

Meeting with Sri Anupam Srivastava, DIR(CM):

GS and AGS Com Vivek Wankhede met DIR(CM) and discussed about Mobile expansion, tender for the SIMs etc: On Mobile expansion DIR(CM) informed that discussion is going on with M/s ZTE for 50% add on quantity on phase VII tender itself. If it is materialised, it will be sufficient to meet the immediate requirements.

For long terms expansion, Phase VIII is planned in four stages. In the first stage, focus will be given on Wi-Fi hot spots in all major locations. In the second stage, focus will be on data service and core equipment expansion like GGSN, SGSN will be taken up. In the 3rd stage, sharing of active infra like BTS with other operators will be taken up so that coverage can be increased without much capital investment. In the fourth stage, focus will be for expansion of mobile network in the locations which are not covered by sharing etc.

On SIM tender, the tender called by BSNLCO is cancelled due to vigilance complaint. After this, Circles are directed to go for limited tender for immediate requirement. To facilitate this, the financial power of CGM is increased from 2.5 lakhs to 25 lakhs.

JTO to SDE Promotion – Urgent attention of CS, Office bearers and activists:

The preparatory work for the DPC can be completed only if 2 years additional ACRs (for 1998, 1999 and 2001 rect JTOs and ST candidates upto 2005 rect year) and VCs are reached at BSNLCO. So far the assessment report received only from BSNLCO and JKD Circles eventhough the last date was 30.11.2014. In this condition, CHQ will not be in a position to issue the promotion order for all the vacancies immediately even if the judgment is pronounced.

Irrespective of repeated reminders, the response from Circles are not encouraging and the ACRs and VC are not reaching BSNLCO. Like 2011, there is every possibility of stay on the judgment if the promotion orders are not issued at least one week time from the date of judgment. Our CSs, other office-bearers and the affected JTOs should come forward to see that ACRs and VC reaching BSNLCO latest by 12.12.2014.

GS writes to DIR(HR) regarding notification for LDCE from JTO(T) to SDE(T) requesting

a) Reducing the minimum qualifying marks from 50% to 45% for “OC” category and from 45% to 40% for “SC/ST” category.

b) Sympathetic consideration of eligibility of JTOs of the same batch of 2008 to appear in the LDCE and

c) Removal of ambiguity in the scheme and syllabus for LDCE.


The proposal for reducing the qualifying marks from 50% to 45% for “OC” category and from 45% to 40% for “SC/ST” category was gone to the BSNL Board along with the scheme and syllabus but BSNL Board didn’t approved reduction of qualifying marks while approving the change in scheme and syllabus. Since it is a clear discrimination, it needs to be addressed.

Editorial -November, 2014 

Leadership and sheer political will required to enable BSNL to realize exciting vision of Digital India. Inept, prejudiced and visionless BABUS sunk in deep red tape reduce BSNL to shambles. MOC&IT needs deeper understanding of and honest feedback to identify chronic malaise afflicting BSNL to stop its decay.

Babus have wrecked havoc with strategic public institutions of the Country. BSNL is a classic instance where bureaucracy has inflicted irreversible and incalculable damage on the Company. Irrational, prejudiced, stubborn and myopic babu mentality of the so called policy makers in the Govt. in not addressing career related issues that would have facilitated absorption of ITS and put BSNL in a commanding position in terms of leadership it needed and still needs to give it real fillip to grow is at the very root of deep crisis that BSNL is in. Today, BSNL is caught in terrible chaos and virtual anarchy because of severe leadership crisis.

How much paradoxical and unfortunate it is that such a gigantic company today is decaying because of incredible leadership crisis it is caught in. Intransigent stand, perverse and stale thinking of babus in DOT/MOF/DOP&T/Cabinet Secy have led to a situation where the Company is today profusely bleeding because of leadership crisis. Neither could babus lure ITS into such a gigantic company to lead it from the front as its stake holders nor did they move that critical extra mile to rope in top telecom professionals from the market to lead the Company. Caught in the quagmire of and stuck in the mud of babudom, they virtually consigned the company to flames. Right from babus in DOT up to the Cabinet Secy, no one just cared to visualize fatal consequences of not deciding that crucial issue of who leads such a gigantic Company in such an intense and cut throat competitive environment. After all an expenditure of a few hundred or even a thousand crores to facilitate ITS absorption in BSNL meant peanuts to allow such a strategically important Company of the Government whose market worth is about 4 lakh crores to grow. Babus also threw stimulating proposal of Sam Pitroda to rope in telecom professionals from the market to the dust bin.

Leaving such a gigantic telecom company high and dry and in the lurch in terms of leadership, these babus are today opining to the political leadership that BSNL is an inefficient organization and putting the entire blame on it for tardy pace of broad band penetration. These babus took catastrophic, ill conceived decision of forming BBNL. Why and what for? They have perfect acumen to create bottlenecks and impede growth. They are best at it. Having created incredibly terrible mess in formation of BBNL, these babus are making BSNL a scapegoat for tardy broadband penetration and digging that final nail in the coffin of BSNL by articulating that BBNL be converted into a business to consumer organization. May be in this ulterior design of babus, they are finding support from ITS who are desperately trying to get rehabilitated here and there.

Babus in DOT, MOF, PMs office etc. are a stigma on BSNL and are squarely responsible for making it bleed- illegitimately holding up refund of nearly Rs 7000 crores on account of surrender of redundant BWA spectrum, forcing BSNL to pay Rs 10000 crores for pan India 3G spectrum while giving full liberty to private operators to decide circles of their choice and allowing them further to enter into a cartel to jeopardize BSNL’s 3G business, forcing BSNL to pay pension contribution on maximum of scales in contravention of orders of DOP&T, blatantly abdicating crisp clear policy commitments to compensate BSNL for meeting social obligations of telecom policy in rural areas, not filling up crucial positions of board of directors for years together, infringing on potential broad band business of BSNL by business by creating a parallel service provider in BBNL, not allowing BSNL to procure GSM equipment from Chinese vendors while allowing private operators to purchase, forcing merger of BSNL and MTNL without resolving contentious issues, severe leadership crisis etc. etc. and the list of their misdeeds keeps on swelling.

Who does not understand and recognize that impact and consequences of deep internet penetration on improved GDP are immense, from providing access to markets, to spreading the growth of financial services, to improvements in productivity and to information access and the list is really unending. The vision of Digital India recognizes these exciting possibilities and the future that deep internet penetration holds in transforming lives all over again. The challenge in executing all this is undoubtedly daunting and needs capacity for this to happen. Stale and perverse bureaucratic thinking will act a stumbling block in accomplishing big dream of Digital India. Extraordinary leadership and sheer political will is needed to sort through critical issues in realizing greater good of delivering on the exciting vision of Digital India.

Gigantic and strategic Telecom Company of the Country, BSNL, has to be intimately involved in accomplishing the big dream of Digital India. Govt. already has its Own Company with 100% stake in it. The Company is on a very strong wicket with massive and widespread infrastructure, unutilized bandwidth, digital transmission and switching networks, manpower etc. etc. It is the entire responsibility of MOC&IT to make it sure that its own Company is biggest and critical partner in accomplishing Digital India dream. It cannot afford to and should not allow its own Company to rot. That would be a doomsday for the Nation. If that happens, posterity will not forgive present MOC&IT on who high hopes hinge and he would be also reckoned as one of the numerous culprits who contributed towards decay of this once robust Company.

JTO to SDE Promotion – Urgent attention of CS, Office bearers and activists:

A single DPC can be held for all the five vacancy years from 2009-10 to 2013-14 for about 5000 vacancies if all the Circles are sending assessment report with additional ACRs of two years 2010-11, 2011-12 of 1998, 1999 and 2001 batch JTOs of all categories and ST category from 2002 to 2005 with VC for 1999 & 2001 (OC and SC only). So far the assessment report and ACRs not received from all major Circles eventhough the last date is 30.11.2014 (see the reminder issued on 18.11.14).

If the additional ACRs and VC not received from all the Circles in another 15 days, the DPC will be split into two parts. In that case the second DPC will be normally delayed by three to four months. Due to court cases, it will be better to have a single DPC at the earliest.

All CSs, office bearers and activists at all levels to gear up to send the additional ACRs and VCs within no time so that a combined DPC can be held for all the vaccancies immediately after the judgment.

Com GS in his address gave latest status on all the issues like E2, E3 Standard pay scales and pay disparity of JTOs of 2007 & 2008, 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruits, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, JTO to SDE promotions and the efforts to make a single DPC, LDCE from JTO to SDE and eligibility criteria, SDE to DE Regular Promotions for 2710 posts by ending the age old adhocism permanently, JAO to AO Promotions, AO to CAO, DE to DGM Adhoc Promotions, CAO to DGM Promotions, DGM Adhoc to DGM Regular both in Engineering and Accounts, regularization of Officiating JTOs, Pay anomalies of TTAs selected as DR JTOs, issues concerning Civil/Electrical/Arch/PAs/ PSs/OLs, Seniority cases of List No. 6 &7/206 /147 etc, supply of materials, BSNL and MTNL merger, subsidiary formation, BBSNL project etc.
GS explained the status of Membership Verification process and appealed to all the comrades to work towards verification so that SNEA(I) can become the majority Association with thumbing majority. This will lead to unity of all the Executives like other CPSUs ending the multiplicity of Assns. A single and strong recognised Assn is the need of the hour to resolve all the outstanding issues with special focus on the cadre interests.
On querry on delay on settlement of E2, E3 pay scales which makes lot of hurt burn among the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007, GS assured that in case pension contribution issue is further delayed, the possibility of extending E2, E3 pay scales alone for the time being without cascading effect also will be explored keeping the demand upto E7 scale open and SNEA(I) is open to the idea. On CPSU cadre hierarchy also, first change of designation along with pay scale will be expedited as functional promotion part is taking time.
