Meeting with CMD:
CHQ president along with both the AGSs met CMD and discussed following issues.
A)    CMD was informed about disinformation campaign being spearheaded that BSNL is entirely responsible for slow broad band penetration and that BBNL should be entrusted with the job of providing high speed internet to consumers directly. In this connection, Association apprised CMD about meeting recently chaired by MOC&IT wherein he directed top officials of DOT to draw a blueprint to convert BBNL from a business to business enterprise to business to consumer enterprise. CMD was apprised about very serious consequences of this unwarranted move of MOC&IT to reduce BSNL to rubbles. Association pleaded with CMD to convey very strongly to MOC&IT that BSNL is in no way responsible for very poor high speed internet penetration to dispel this impression as quickly as possible. Association will take recourse to very tough organizational actions in case MOC&IT continues his unwarranted diatribe against BSNL in order to push through ulterior motives of the Government to sell BSNL to vested interests on false and unfounded grounds of BSNL not being able to live up to its commitment of providing high speed broadband in rural areas. MOC&IT must instead focus to address chronic policy paralysis which is adversely impeding growth of BSNL and has got worse since taking over of present MOC&IT.
B)    Association requested and urged upon CMD to immediately direct concerned officers to issue re allotment orders of recently promoted regular STS officers in case of TN and CH/TD. CMD assured that orders of re allotment to TN and CH/TD would be issued in a day or two. We expressed our gratitude to CMD.

Since Coal India workers has deferred the strike, the lunch hour demonstration of SNEA(I) scheduled tomorrow (24-11-2014)  in support of Coal India is deferred till further notice.

22-11-2014

Extend full support to strike by Coal India workers on 24th Nov, 14.
Comrades throughout the Country must hold massive country wide lunch hour demonstrations at CGM/GM Hqs in support of the strike by Coal India workers to oppose the unwarranted move of the govt. to offload its 10% equity in profit making CPSU which has been operating in a hostile and counterproductive climate of unprecedented political corruption in nexus with corrupt private sector for the last two decades. Hats off to workers of Coal India who, despite all the odds and massive political corruption and policy paralysis in the sector, yielded positive and encouraging results. Extend them full support in defeating ulterior motives of the govt. to shield corrupt private sector yet again at the cost of highly strategic and revenue yielding CPSU.

22-11-2014

MOC & IT mulling final burial of BSNL
Comrades get ready for a protracted and do or die struggle to defeat diabolical moves of the govt. to consign strategic national telecom institution to flames. On the pretext of slow pace of broad band penetration, for which BSNL is in no way responsible, MOC&IT is preparing fertile and elaborate ground for final burial of BSNL by converting BBNL into full fledged service provider to kill our potential broad band segment business and create a parallel state owned competitor. End result of this would inevitably be that both companies collapse.  Comrades, rise to the occasion to safeguard our beloved Company from annihilation and knock down sinister moves of MOC&IT and the Govt. Alibi of slow broad band penetration is a calculated ploy to hand over strategic and monopolistic last mile to private sector.    
MOC&IT is totally unconcerned, disinterested and unconnected to chronic and multiple policy ills afflicting BSNL. No effort is made by MOC&IT yet to even look cursorily at some basic issues that continue to paralyze growth of BSNL. Policy paralysis continues and Govts Hoopla to end policy paralysis is a complete hoax with regard to BSNL. MOC&IT needs to connect to hard ground realities of BSNL and come out of the ivory tower that he is living in since his taking over with regard to BSNL.
Our struggle has to force MOC&IT to come out of ivory tower and reconcile to and understand hard ground realities of BSNL so as to comprehensively address chronic and basic issues that impede growth of BSNL. Our struggle has to remind MOC&IT that he is the owner of the prestigious and strategic telecom institution of the Nation and that it is his fundamental responsibility to strengthen it, not weaken it. As of now he has made no effort whatsoever to even understand the basic issues that require comprehensive and expeditious resolution.   
As far as we are concerned, we are fully committed to deliver high speed internet to common man through highly ambitious Digital India initiative of the Govt. MOC&ITs apprehensions that BSNL cannot deliver on high promise of PM to deliver high speed internet are unfounded and devoid of reality. Our struggle has to force him to understand the larger issues of policy in BSNL that need quick resolution. BSNL will never be found wanting in meeting the objectives spelt out by the Govt., once basic and larger issues are addressed in totality. That has to be the essence and objective of our struggle. And SNEA, given its chequered legacy and history of walking that first crucial extra mile of struggle, is fully capable of creating this situation. Gear up  to create that situation that compels MOC to have a hard look at the ground realities prevailing in BSNL that have jeopardized its growth.

GS Writes to Hon.Prime Minister of India regarding filling up of CMD/BSNL and Dir(HR), DIR(Fin) posts --- Govts public posture to revive BSNL hollow and dubious. strategic and key positions like CMD/BSNL vacant for months together, Director(HR) and Director(Finance) unfilled for years together. Gigantic and strategic Company is being deliberately allowed to decay so as to help private operators and eventually justify its sale to vested interests. Present MOC&IT betraying Govts proclaimed public stand to end policy paralysis and has miserably failed to take elementary steps to revive BSNL.

Meeting of the Joint Committee on E2, E3 pay scale and CPSU cadre hierarchy.

Discussions held on implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy. Finally it is decided to continue the discussions after 15 days in which Assns will give a presentation. The official side will study the financial implications if any on the issue.

On implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 for JTOs, SDEs and equivalent cadres, the official side was inclined to consider E2, E3 pay scales for JTOs, SDEs etc replacing E1A and E2A if there is no cascading effect to other scales from E3 onwards. On the demand for implementation of standard pay scales from E2, E3 to E7, Chairman told that this is not the mandate of the committee and if E2 to E7 has to be discussed, it has to be brought to the notice of Management as it is having huge financial implications. The mandate is limited to E2, E3 for JTOs, SDEs and equivalent cadres in place of non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A. Further DoT also to be consulted since pension issue is involved. If Management agrees to modify the mandate to the committee, it will be discussed further. Chairman directed GM(Estt) to take up the matter with DIR and CMD and get the feedback.  

All the members of the Joint Committee except GM(SR) was present in the meeting. GS and AGS represented SNEA(I).

JTO to SDE seniority case at Hon CAT, Ernakulam. The arguments in the OA continued for more than 3 hours today and concluded at 5.50 PM. Judgment is reserved. Since the Hon division bench is not sitting next week and the same member will not be available next time, the arguments went upto 5.50 PM to conclude. One Administrative member was deputed from Hon CAT, Banglore to Ernakulam just for this week. Our Assn took the lead in all aspects and our pleading with BSNL to file an MA in addition to our MA for allowing BSNL to go ahead with promotions, helped in listing the case for early hearing. Originally the case was posted to 17.11.2014 but division bench is not available on that day. 

In Chennai also, SNEA only became party and defended the case properly.

The Stand of the association in strongly opposing the recommendation of TRAI to force BSNL to surrender 1.2 Mhz spectrum in premium 900 Mhz band and thereby put it up for upcoming auction for private operators fully vindicated. Association virtually condemned the nexus between TRAI and private operators while recommending BSNL should surrender 1.2 Mhz spectrum in premium 900 Mhz band. 

Our letter addressed to Hon. MoC & IT on 27-10-2014 strongly denounces the recommendation (View Copy of the letter).

In line with the arguments put forth by this association to oppose the said recommendation, DOT, Policy makers also out rightly rejects the recommendation of TRAI to allocate more spectrum than is presently available in the upcoming auction.
