3. Issues related to Membership verification among Executive Assns: a) making changes in the new Recognition Rules, b) deduction of subscription from the salary and c) restoration of trade union facilities.
4. Pay anomalies: a) Recovery /reduction in pay and Committee on Offtg pay fixation, b) Antedating of increments, c) Senior drawing less pay than the juniors -- generalization of Hon Supreme Court order, d) annual increment @ 3% of current basic pay.
Maximum publicity and marketing has to be done to the new BB schemes of 2 Mbps speed among the customers and public.
Along with that the Free call facility during night hours is a good package to offer to the public.
Free roaming facility for mobile connections is another attractive offer.
A net increase of about 4% is observed in the revenue during last few months, a very very positive and promising trend. However we have to grow further and further, month by month to reach the figure of 15% to offset the losses.
All employees are to contribute much more towards the growth and revenue generation so that we have to get all the benefits of 3rd PRC.
Congratulations: Chairman, Joint Committee submitted the recommendations of the Joint Committee on a) E2, E3 pay scales, b) CPSU cadre hierarchy and c) First TB promotion uniformly after 4 years w.e.f 01.10.2000 to CMD, BSNL today:
GS Com K. Sebastin and Chairman/SNEA Com G. L. Jogi met CMD, BSNL and held discussions on the following subjects:
A. Further actions on the recommendations of the Joint Committee: GS thanked CMD for the reconstitution of the Committee and monitoring the progress also. GS requested expeditious actions on the recommendations of the Jt Committee.
On our apprehension about the dissent note by the committee members from official side, CMD assured that management is committed to resolve the issues and the dissent note will not come on the way. CMD informed that the report has been already marked to DIR(HR) for further actions.
The Joint Committee recommended:
i) Replacement of intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A with standard pay scales of E2 and E3 w.e.f 01.01.2007.
ii) Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy or TB functional promotion from JTO/JAO --> SDE/AO --> Sr SDE/Sr AO -->DE/CAO/EE without linking with existing seniority and availability of posts, with a residency period of 5 years for each promotion from one grade to the next grade.
iii) Maximum residency period for first TB promotion is recommended to reduce from 6 years to 5 years w.e.f 01.10.2000.
The committee has been reconstituted after SNEA agitation in April-May, 2015 with Sri Mohammed Ashraf Khan as the Chairman. This decision has been taken in the meeting between SNEA and CMD, DIR(HR) and ED(Fin) on 06.05.2015 during the agitation. CMD assured in the meeting that the committee will conclude the recommendations by 15.08.2015 by regular meetings, atleast once in a fortnight. The earlier committee formed on 28.02.2012 was defunct for more than 3 years which compelled SNEA to launch trade union actions in February, 2014 and in April-May, 2015. After the reconstitution, SNEA followed up the issues on a day to day basis which resulted in the final recommendations within four and half months time. Before that SNEA pursued the pay scale issue in DoT and DPE vigorously and got the proposal of intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A rejected by DPE.
Comrades, we have to be very vigilant and in full organizational preparedness to ensure that the recommendations are implemented in totality without any change. As some negative forces are working to see that no cadre issue is getting resolved for the absorbed/directly recruited Executives, we have to keep ourselves prepared for any organizational actions in short notice to see that the recommendations are getting implemented in the minimum possible time.
B. Popularising and effective marketing of new Broad band schemes with 2 Mbps speed. CMD requested to give maximum publicity to the new schemes and get maximum connections. The revenue has to increase considerably in the coming months by the new initiatives.

Kerala Circle conducts “massive convention" at Trivandrum.
Kerala Circle Unions of SNEA and BSNLEU conducted a “massive convention" at Trivandrum today. More than 500 comrades participated. The convention is conducted in the backdrop of the massive victimizations and vindictive actions of Sri M.S.S.Rao, on the leaders and activists of SNEA and BSNLEU. Com.K.Mohanan, CS/BSNLEU, welcomed every one. Com George Varghese, CS/SNEA presided over the convention. It was addressed by a host of leaders including Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS/BSNLEU, Com.R.Rajan, CHQ Treasurer/SNEA, Com.V.A.N.Namboodiri, Com.P.V.Chandrasekaran, Patron/AIBDPA, Com.Animesh Mitra, Secretary General/BSNLCCWF, Com.Saibal Sengupta, Treasurer/BSNLEU, Com. Pratap Kumar, AGS/BSNLEU, Com.K. Sudheer, CP/SNEA Com.N.A.Abraham, EX-CS/SNEA and others. Com.P.Abhimanyu and Com.R.Rajan narrated the developments that have taken place at New Delhi in connection with the developments in Kerala circle. All the leaders severely condemned the victimisations that have been imposed on the activists and declared that every single victimisation will be withdrawn within the shortest possible time.
Eventhough GS/SNEA had gone to Kerala for attending the convention,
he could not address the convention as he has to return to New Delhi urgently on
Sunday night itself due to some pressing organizational activities.

Expert Committee meeting on revision of seniority lists 1 to 5: The last meeting of the committee held today. It is expected that the report will be submitted by the Expert Committee to the Hon Supreme Court by 15th October, 2015. Now the case is listed for hearing on 31.10.2015. So far 17 sittings made by the committee.
It is expected that the expert committee report will be:
a) As per Hon SC order dated 20.01.2015, the seniority lists 1 to 5 is revised to old 1 to 17 (promoted upto 1994) followed by list 18 (those promoted in 1998 and subsequent years).
b) On revision of seniority, there will not be any reversion from Substantiate status. Those who promoted earlier and become junior on revision of seniority and may face reversion, the promotion and pay will be protected.
c) The seniors on revision /restoration of seniority list 1 to 17 will be given notional promotion, notional pay (without arrears), pension and the service will be counted for the next promotion.
d) The 147 officers will not be included in seniority list 1 to 17 as their names were not available in the original list. Assn strongly objected BSNL move to include their names in the original list 1 to 17 by inserting their names and giving seniority from 1990 onwards. Further Hon Ernakulam HC quashed their revision of seniority from 1994 to 1990 onwards also. Finally BSNL agreed to submit the original seniority lists of 1 to 17 to the expert committee without inserting the names of 147 officers which committee accepted. Now they are placed in the next seniority list of 18 (for those promoted in 1998 or later), giving seniority from 1994 to 1996 onwards till Hon SC decides the SLP.
