Joint Forum writes to Hon MoSC: Reconsideration of the wrong presidential order issued by DoT on 28.03.2017, totally negating the recommendations of BSNL Board by lowering the pay scales of the entry level cadres of JTO and SDE equivalent from the proposed E2 scale to E1 and E3 scale to E2. Reconsider the decision to refer the matter to DoPT and take a favourable decision based on the DPE letter of 09.07.2014. In case Govt feels it is required to be referred, it may be referred to the nodal Ministry, DPE and not DoPT.

Meeting with DIR(CM) on 01.12.2017: GS, President and AGS met Sri R K Mittal, DIR(CM) and held discussions on starting 4G services by BSNL. An expert committee has been formed by BSNL to make recommendations in this regard. The committee recommended for using the Wi-Max spectrum for starting the 4G services.  The ecosystem for starting the 4G services in 2600 MHz Wi-Max spectrum is the major challenge, DIR informed. Again BSNL has to take a call on whether to continue Wi-Max services or not. Alternative spectrum in lieu of Wi-Max spectrum also can be taken up with DoT. In both cases, the nodes are to be procured.

DIR(CM) further told that BSNL is making a strong case for allotting another 5 MHz spectrum in the same 2100 MHz band to start 4G services. Earlier response from DoT was not at all encouraging but now slight change is visible in the approach of DoT. The present nodes are compatible for that purpose. Management is very seriously considering for starting 4G services and various options are explored for this purposes, DIR informed.
