Standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc: DoT intimated the decision of DPE on the BSNL proposal of intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A to CMD, BSNL. DPE earlier rejected the proposal of E1A and E2A. Now Assn will pursue the implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 --- E7 for the Executives in BSNL. Last few months Assn vigorously pursued the matter in DoT and DPE and met all the concerned officers in DoT and DPE including Secretary/DPE, Jt Sec/DPE, Jt Sec/DoT etc and ensured that DPE is not approving the proposal of E1A and E2A send by BSNL through DoT.

This is one of the major step for implementation of standard pay scales in BSNL which SNEA(I) pursuing with top most priority with the support of all the Executives.

Meeting with CMD, BSNL: GS and President met Sri A. N. Rai, CMD, BSNL and held discussions on the ongoing agitation in Kerala Circle for the last 29 days. CMD informed us that appropriate instructions are already issued to Sri MSS Rao, CGMT/Kerala to resolve the issues immediately. CMD was very unhappy due to the fact that even after strict instructions, vindictive actions are continued by the CGMT. CMD further told us that since instructions are already issued by BSNLCO, Assn may reconsider the programme of hunger strike at BSNLCO from tomorrow and facilitate the dialogue. GS and President explained the compelling reasons to start agitation programmes at CHQ level as situation in Kerala is worsening day by day due to vindictive actions. CMD assured that no further vindictive actions will be taken by the CGMT like charge sheet, memo, dies-non, second medical opinion etc and CGMT is directed to invite Assn for discussion and resolution of all issues. Assn assured that SNEA(I) will respond very positively in case CGMT is ready to resolve the issues.

On JTO to SDE promotion case, Assn requested CMD that BSNL to engage a senior lawyer from Delhi to defend the case at Ernakulam as Kerala Circle repeatedly failed to defend the case properly. CMD assured that he will give proper directions to Pers section and GM(Estt) holding the charge of GM(Pers) in this regard.

Before meeting CMD, GS, President, both AGSs and CS/CO met GM(SR). GM(SR) informed that CMD decided to issue appropriate instructions today itself to CGMT/Kerala to discuss all the issues with the Association and resolve them. This is in addition to the instructions already conveyed to CGMT telephonically by CMD. CGMT is asked to give a report in three days time. Since CMD already intervened in the matter, CMD desires that the letter for holding two days hunger strike at BSNLCO to be reconsidered. GS and President explained the compelling reasons to start agitation programmes at CHQ level as situation in Kerala is worsening day by day due to vindictive actions. GM(SR) suggested to postpone the programmes for few days to facilitate the dialogue and resolution of the issues.  

CGMT invited SNEA(I)/KRL for discussions today A/N itself but for the convenience of the Assn, meeting postponed to tomorrow A/N.

In order to have a conducive atmosphere for discussion and resolution of the issues, the hunger strike at BSNL CO on 24th and 25th postponed to 31st July and 01st August, 2014.

Massive victimization of members of this Association by CGM/Kerala because of firm and sustained opposition of the Association towards waiving off/reducing penalty of Rs 30 crores, by present CGM/Kerala, imposed against Nortel, vendor for GSM expansion, in the year 2011, in conformity with stipulated contractual obligations, for its abnormal delay in implementing phase 1V GSM expansion- Benign and expeditious intervention solicited

Relay hunger strike by our Kerala Comrades continues for the 24th day---.

As CMD/BSNL and DIR(CFA) intervened in the matter, Assn restrained itself from aggravating the situation as requested by them. But the arrogant CGMT Sri MSS Rao is continuing his vindictive actions like issuing dies non to the comrades availing leave and participating in the hunger strike, video graphing the agitating comrades including lady comrades which created wide spread criticism about his motives, issuing memos, transfers etc which cannot be tolerated. But this gimmicks did not demoralize the valiant comrades and the hunger strike is continuing for the 24th day. The services are severely affected. SSA Heads are closing thousands of complaint dockets without attending the fault. We are confident that CMD/BSNL and DIR/CFA will resolve the issues without any delay.

 

If the issues are not resolved in another few days, Assn is planning for All India agitation as decided in the CWC. All CHQ office bearers should be ready to come to New Delhi next week on a very short notice.

Meeting with Sri Anupam Srivastava: GS and President met Sri Anupam Srivastava and discussed the alleged corrupt activities of Sri MSS Rao, CGMT Kerala in the Nortel penalty waving case. He had formed committees after committee to get a favourable report to reduce the 30 Cr penalty imposed by earlier CGMT in 2011 based on the recommendation of a high level committee. DIR(CM) categorically told that there is no instruction from BSNLCO to review any penalty and if CGM is doing so, it is his own decision only. Now matter is under examination by CM cell and appropriate action will be taken.

Assn categorically told that all his corrupt activities and transfer of GMs, DGMs and Executives who are not supporting his corrupt activities will be fully exposed by the Assn. As a result he is becoming more and more vindictive day by day. But ultimately he has to pay the price for his corrupt activities and provocative actions.

The profit theory of Mr MSS Rao is not his contribution but because of the smart tariff revision by BSNLCO. The tariff revision alone given 143 Cr additional revenue in CFA (72 Cr in basic phone + 71 Cr in broadband) and about 120 Cr in CM segment. If the tariff revision was not happened, then the profit would have been about 150 Cr instead of 411 cr as boosted by Mr Rao.

SNEA(I) demanded amendments of some important provisions before the commencement of verification which will be examined by the committee shortly.

JTO to SDE promotion case at Hon CAT, Ernakulam. The OA was listed for “Final disposal” on 16.07.14. However it is learned that BSNL lawyer sought adjournment as senior lawyer engaged by BSNL was out of station. Assn will be taking up the issue with the top BSNL Management, the lack of interest shown by Kerala CGMT in ensuring the appearance of Senior lawyer in the court when the case was listed one month back itself. When BSNLCO is eagerly waiting for the outcome of the case after completing all the preparatory works for promotions, the stand of CGMT Kerala even defying the repeated instructions of BSNLCO and DIR(HR) is astonishing.  

The SLP filed by BSNL and all other connected SLPs on Rule 206 seniority is listed for final hearing in the Hon Supreme Court on 17.07.2014.

On the alleged large scale corruption charges against Sri MSS Rao, CGMT, CMD informed that the Nortel issue is made over to DIR(CM) for thorough inquiry. Fixing of staffing norms by CGMT ignoring the staffing norms of BSNLCO and exercise of rationalization in the name of CGMTs norms, CMD told us that no Circle is having such power to change the norms and all Circles has to follow the norms fixed by BSNLCO and posts sanctioned by BSNLCO. Tomorrow, Assn will be meeting DIR(CFA) also.

Case at Hon Supreme Court on 147 seniority.
The SLPs alongwith the MAs filed by the applicants and BSNL came up for arguments on 07/07/2014. The applicants (147 officers) and BSNL pleaded for allowing the promotions. Our senior lawyer strongly opposed any stay on Hon EKM High Court order and argued that any promotion including 147 officers will be as good as stay of Hon EKM judgment and CAT judgment. After hearing the pleading from both sides, Hon SC decided for final hearing of the SLPs in the last week of September and dispose off the matter on merit. Meanwhile Hon SC allowed to go ahead with promotions as per the existing seniority subject to the outcome of the SLP.

Highest Number of DELs...Smart Working Practices...? DCRMS...?

At last Kerala Circle falls to 18th Position in Basic revenue growth as per Corporate Office office letter. It is shocking to see that Kerala Falls to 18th Position in revenue growth under the Smart Working of CGMT Kerala Circle…

Let us have a close look at the growth figures of Kerala in terms of real statistics, reports of TRAI, orders of Corporate office to establish that Kerala Circle has actually registered a negative growth with reference to previous Year. For this, we are producing hereunder two detailed reports.
We can clearly find out that, despite increase in revenue in 2013-14, which is  again largely due to increase in tariffs rather than increase in volume of traffic, the profit during 2013-14 is 43.42% as compared to profits of with respect to 92.08% and 93.84 registered in 2012-13 and 2011-12.

Please see the huge decline in Profit Growth
chart
Let us look at following salient, mindboggling and revealing facts and parameters.

  • The expected profit for 2013-14 was more than 500 Cr. The revenue and profit should have increased further due to the effect of hike in tariff.
  • The effect of tariff hike is about 11%, but the total growth of Kerala Circle is just 7.69%.
  • If the tariff hike was not implemented, the revenue would have come down drastically and even the profit would have been less than that of 2012-13.
  • In CFA segment alone, the revenue increased during 2013-14 by 45 Cr (-8.59% in 2012-13 to 3.45% in 2013-14) comparing to previous years. In 2011-12, revenue decreased by 131.6 Cr(-8.43%) and in 2012-13, the revenue was further down by 122.7 Cr (-8.59%). Increase in revenue in CFA segment is only due to increase in rentals from Rs 50 to Rs 110(annual plan closed). In the Broadband Segment it can be seen that, despite negative growth during 2013-14 (Broad band connections fell down from 79,717 during 2012-13 to 50,544 during 2013-14), revenue increased by 71 Cr only due to tariff hike, not growth which was negative. Total landline connections are about 27 lakhs.
  • The tariff hike alone increased the revenue of CFA segment at least by 150 Cr.
  • Negative growth in mobile segment. Even after the tariff hike in 3G, WiMax and infra sharing, mobile revenue during 2013-14 increased only by 178.4 Cr (14.29%) compared to previous years. Without any tariff hike, the mobile revenue increased by 187.6 CR (20.44%) in 2011-12 and 145.5 Cr (13.19%) in 2012-13.
  • Large no of Broad band disconnections in 2013-14 (1.217 lakhs).

General Secretary Com. K. Sebastin, CHQ President Com. G. L. Jogi and Circle Secretary, Kerala Com. George Varghese met DIR(CFA) Sri N. K. Gupta on 11.07.2014 and discussed the issues related to Kerala Circle. CS, Kerala was also invited by the BSNL Management for discussions and resolution of all the issues. CS/Kerala explained the issues in detail to DIR(CFA). DIR(CFA) informed that he is very much aware of the issues in Kerala Circle and assured that prompt action will be taken by BSNLCO to resolve the issues. Kerala being the model Circle in BSNL, Management is very serious in the developments in Kerala Circle and all actions will be taken to restore the confidence of the employees.

Yesterday, 10.07.2014, we had a meeting for more than three hours with Sr. GM (NWO), Sri. Mittal who is deputed by CMD and DIR(CFA) to discuss the issues with all the concerned and have first hand information. CS, Kerala emphasized the point that the issue behind the on-going agitation in Kerala is not just because of transfer issued in May 2014 as propogated by some quarters to divert from the core issues like corruption, but against the bad policies of CGMT, his attitude, deliberate attempt to dismantle the monitoring mechanisms and unhealthy work culture, shifting of experienced and efficient officers and Executives from the wings/sections, attempt to change the staffing norms  and reduction of posts sanctioned by BSNLCO, rotational transfer etc since Sri. M.S.S Rao assumed the charge of CGMT. CHQ office bearers also pointed out that he become vindictive when Association started questioning some of his actions which may lead to corruption for crores of rupees. To terrorize the senior officers like GMs, DGMs and Executives, he is using transfer as one of the tool. CS, BSNLCO Com. A.A. Khan was also present in both the meetings.

DPE out rightly rejects the proposal sent by DOT recently to allow BSNL to introduce replacement scales of E1A and E2A for JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs in BSNL based on the decision of the BSNL Board.

This Association has had been having consistent interaction with the concerned officers in DPE for the last about three months to impress upon them and convince them not to take an exception to the proposal of DOT to allow BSNL to introduce non standard IDA replacement scales of E1A and E2A in BSNL for JTO/SDEs in the context of guidelines issued by DPE to all the CPSUs not to extend non standards IDA scales. DPE has further directed DOT to correct any aberration, if at all, in this regard.

With the rejection of proposal by DPE, our demand to extend standard IDA scales of E2 and E3 for JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs gets strengthened since BSNL Management very recently during our organizational actions made a firm commitment to us that it will consider our demand of extending standard pay scales of E2 and E3 with an open mind in case DPE takes a contrary view to the decision of BSNL Board to allow extending replacement IDA scales of E1A and E2A to JTOs, SDEs etc. This is a very positive development and surely brings us closer to resolution of our demand of extending standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs, SDEs etc.

This Association has had series of discussions with concerned officers in DPE on this issue. CHQ president and GS had a detailed discussion on this issue with Secy/DPE and JtSecy/DPE nearly three months before and succeeded in impressing upon them to reiterate to DOT that BSNL must switch over to standard IDA scales approved by Govt. based on the recommendations of 2nd PRC and immediately correct any anomalous situation that prevails in BSNL with regard to existence of non standard IDA scales. This is a big milestone as far as resolving the issue of extending standard scales of E2 and E3 to JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs etc is concerned and gives us huge strategic leverage to get the issue resolved.
