Modifications in the guidelines in transfer to Soft tenure areas in BSNL reg.

By this order, i) Executives posted to Soft Tenure area shall, on completion of tenure, be considered for choice posting and ii) Executive already served in a soft tenure shall be entitled for the benefit of break in Circle tenure.

Message from Former CMD Sri.R.K.Upadhyay:
Congratulations for Regular DE promotion list. I am sure the occassion will be used by these Regular DEs / AGMs to rededicate them for the progress of business of our beloved company BSNL.

Comrades,

Since there is no initiative on the part of BSNL management to resolve the most important and long pending HR issues like E2, E3 pay scales even after rejection of E1A and E2A pay scales by DPE and DoP, 30% superannuation benefits to BSNL directly recruited employees, JTO to SDE promotion, CPSU cadre hierarchy etc., association is compelled to restart the agitation programme. The programme of trade union action will be announced on Monday (25-08-2014).


All CSs, SSA / Branch secretaries, office bearers at all levels and activists are requested to start massive preparations at grass root level by convening  General body meetings at SSA / Branch level and important locations.

All VCs should reach BSNLCO latest by 29.08.2014. Otherwise our DPC will be delayed evenif we are getting relief from the court cases tomorrow. All CSs may treat it as very urgent.

Congratulations to one and all !!! DE Regular promotion orders issued for 2303 SDE/Adhoc DEs: This promotion will be another historic milestone in the history of BSNL/DoT.

Singular efforts of SNEA(I) in 2013-14 increased the DE regular quota from 50% to 75% and increased the posts by 1378, ending Adhocism.

By this DPC, clearing a record no of 2771 vacancies for 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 in a single list, DE regular promotion becomes current.

Practically SNEA(I) worked in tandem with the DPC team and BSNL Management for the last several months to achieve this goal. 

Last Seniority No: OC- 19270, SC—23400, ST-30818.308.

The DPC conducted for 2771 vacancies, 2303 promoted in this list. Remaining 468 cases are a) un-assessed cases due to non availability of ACRs or b) VC not received cases or c) other sealed cover cases. 132 SDEs are still left out in list no 5.

 

Around 1000 SDEs are promoted as DEs and those vacancies can be utilized for JTO to SDE promotion.

SNEA(I) is extremely grateful to Sri A. N. Rai, CMD/DIR(HR), BSNL for filling all the DE vacancies on regular basis. Further, we are also thankful to Sri Neeraj Verma, Chairman/DPC, Sri S S Aggarwal/GM(Pers), Sri Ram Shakal, CLO, Sri P S V Rama Rao, AGM/DPC, Sri G. D. Mishra, AGM/VA, Smt Elizabeth, DM/DPC, Smt Ponnammal, DM/DPC, Sri Vijoy Choudhary, DM/VA and Smt Kanakalakshmi, DM/DPC for making the dream come true.

There are no words to express our gratitude to Sri Deepak Aggarwal, Addl GM(Pers) who took all the pains to complete the DPC for 2771 vacancies in a record time.

Our CSs, SSA Secs, CHQ Office bearers and activists at different levels took all the pains and worked with all sincerity to arrange ACRs and VCs in time.

Our team of both AGSs at CHQ, especially Com Vivek Wankhede were fully involved in this DPC work, round the clock, for the last few months in collecting ACRs and VCs from different Circles.

Once again congratulations to all the promoted comrades and wish them all the best.

Meeting with Sri A. N. Rai, CMD/BSNL. GS Com K Sebastin and President Com G L Jogi met Sri A. N. Rai, CMD/BSNL and discussed the following issues:

A)       Continuing vindictive actions by CGMT, Kerala even after the settlement of issues and reluctance to honour the written assurances: Assn told CMD that some of the written assurances given by the CGMT like “no vindictive action will be taken against the Executives” is not implemented in its true spirit. Instead of that, provocative action is continuing by transferring the Circle Treasurer, Dist President and other activists to remote places in the name of routine transfer which is nothing but vindictive action and it has to be withdrawn. Repeated written assurances to implement the transfer of SDE/JTOs who are posted to different SSAs two years back is not implemented. CMD himself was assured the Assn on 16.07.2014 that transfer of 76 SDE/JTOs who are posted to different SSAs two years back are approved by CGMT and orders will be issued. Even this assurance of CMD is not implemented. The vindictive actions like show cause, leave period, charge sheets etc also to be settled sympathetically as assured by the CGMT. We further requested the intervention of CMD as the agitation in Kerala Circle was withdrawn after his intervention and assurances and written assurance from CGMT/Kerala. CMD assured that he will ensure all the commitments given by him and CGMT/Kerala is implemented and he will discuss all these issues with CGMT/Kerala this week itself when he is coming for HOCC meeting.

 

DE Regular promotion for the vacancy years 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14. Since DPC for 2011-12 and 2012-13 is over, Assn requested to issue the promotion order tomorrow itself before the expiry of VC. CMD assured prompt action. Assn further requested to consider the following points at the time of posting. a) Retention all Executives having less than 3 years of service as on 31.08.2014 in the same Circle as done in previous years. b) As DGM promotion is also expected shortly, the resultant vacancies also to be considered at the time of posting. c) Posting strictly as per seniority to the extent vacancies are available. d) Accommodating the female Executives and 56 plus age in the nearby Circles. CMD assured to consider all the points and directed us to have further detail discussion with GM(Pers).

Proposed amendments are futile since they are deficient in achieving the much awaited objective of parity and allow continuance of discrimination..... GS writes to CMD.

Meeting with Sri A. N Rai, CMD/BSNL: GS Com K Sebastin and President Com G L Jogi met Sri A. N Rai, CMD/BSNL on 08.08.2014 and held discussion. At the outset, CMD told that financial condition of the company is not good and every month, Corporate office is struggling to disburse the salaries and other expenses related to operations and maintenance. The external board members are not agreeing for any proposal involving financial implications to the company.

If the financial condition is not improved, the 3rd pay revision in 2017 will be a big question. If pay revision is not implemented, then BSNL employees will be treated as second class citizens (like ITI employees!). All should work together to ensure to avoid such situation in BSNL for the BSNL employees.

However Assn strongly pleaded that delay in resolution of some of the long pending HR issues like standard pay scales, 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees, promotions in different cadres etc will further demoralize the Executives. When company is looking forward for revival, the following HR issues to be resolved quickly which will boost the morale of the Executives and they will be contributing miraculously towards the growth of the company. Further the following issues discussed:

a)  Agitation programmes in Kerala Circle: Assn explained to CMD that most of the assurances given by the CGMT/KRL at the time of settlement is not yet implemented even after one week. Three weeks back, CMD informed us that the request transfer orders are approved, but till this date, the orders are not released even after the assurance of CMD. The vindictive actions initiated by the Management like die-non, show cause, charge sheet etc to be withdrawn as per the agreement. Since these confidence building measures are not started implementing, the field units are not come to the normal situation which effectively affecting the services. CMD assured to intervene in the matter.

b)  Implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 etd for JTO/JAO, SDE/AO etc: Assn explained that the BSNL proposal of E1A and E2A pay scale is rejected by DPE and DoT communicated the same to BSNL. As per the understanding reached during the last agitation and decisions of the meeting held on 19.03.2014, now the Joint committee has to work out the implementation of E2, E3 pay scales. After deliberations, CMD agreed to deliberate the matter in the committee further.

c)   30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruites: Assn pointed out that this issue is delayed for years together even after the agreement in June, 2012 with the Forum. The high level committee also didn’t deliberate the issue seriously. CMD informed that again the matter is referred back to the HLC which will be headed by new ED(Fin) and told us to have further discussions with HLC and ED(Fin).

d)   Promotion from JTO to SDE cadre and LDCE: The court case is now listed for 23.08.2014, Saturday to have final haring. Assn requested CMD to ensure the presence of senior lawyer on that day. The DPC related work also to be expedited. CMD agreed to instruct CGM/Kerala.

e) Promotion from SDE/Adhoc DE to DE Regular: Assn requested to complete the DPC at the earliest as VCs expiring by 3rd week. Since large no of transfers are involved, about 10% of VCs are not received so far. CMD assured to complete the DPC before expiry of the same.

f) Rule 8 transfers: Assn brought to the notice of CMD that even after JTO recruitment, Circles are not considering the Rule 8 transfers. Large no of JTOs including ladies are working in difficult areas including NE I, Assam, J&K etc and completed more than 5 to 8 years. Assn requested the intervention of CMD in this issue. CMD assured to examine the issue.

Meeting with Sri S S Aggarwal, GM(Pers): GS Com K Sebastin, AGS Com Aravind Dahiya, CS/TN Com M Gopinathan and CT/TN Com Jayaraman met GM(Pers) on 06.08.2014 and discussed the following issues:

2)        SDE/Adhoc DE to DE Regular promotion: We informed about the VC status from different Circles and requested to complete the DPC for 2011-12 and 2012-13 by next week before the expiry of the VC and DPC for 2013-14 by this month end. In case VCs not received their case will be kept pending. GM(Pers) ascertained the status from DPC section also.

3)        DE to DGM promotion: The status of VC and ACR discussed. It is decided to expedite both ACRs and VC.

4)        Modification of transfer from Soft tenure places in AP and PB Circles: GM (Pers) informed that the proposal is under the consideration of todays MC meeting and once it is approved, necessary action will be taken to cancel the orders.

5)        Request transfers in SDE and DE cadre: After discussion, GM (Pers) agreed to consider the pending request transfer cases.

6)        Posting volunteers to ITPC, Pune etc: Volunteers are called by BSNLCO and Assn requested to issue the transfer orders. GM (Pers) told that posting to ITPC is not done as excess number of Executives are working in ITPC, much above the sanctioned strength. Action is initiated to regularize this by diversion of posts from other circles to ITPC by Estt section. Once this process is over, request to ITPC will be considered.

08-08-2014

VC status for JTO to SDE promotion: The new VC called for JTO to SDE promotion not received by Pers II section of BSNLCO from any one of the Circle. Without VC, the DPC cannot be held even if the case at Hon CAT, EKM is decided on 23.08.2014 (Assn also impleaded in the case). So, all the CSs and activists to ensure that the JTO VC is reaching BSNCO directly to Pers II section of BSNLCO before 23.08.2014.

DE Regular promotion: BSNLCO is not in a position to go ahead with DPC work as VC from few Circles not reached CVO office (NTR(34), AS(22), NE I/NE II(15), J&K(14), AP(12), OR(12), PB(09)) irrespective of repeated reminders to our CSs on a daily basis when other Circles send it 3 months back. If these Circles are not sending the VCs by Friday, the DPC work has to be stopped and fresh VC has to call for all other Circles.

These CSs will be responsible for such delay in promotion for months together to our own comrades because they are not in a position to send the VC in 3 months time.

Circle Executive Committee meeting of SNEA (I), Punjab Circle: The CEC meeting of Punjab Circle was held at Jalandhar on 30.07.2014. C/P Com Gurpreet Singh presided over the meeting and C/S Amarjit Singh addressed the CEC. All the SSA Secretaries presented the report in the CEC meeting. CS informed the house that almost 97% of the newly promoted JTOs joined SNEA(I). An opens session was held in the afternoon which was attended by the newly joined JTOs, CS/SNATTA, the leaders and activists of SNEA(I) from different SSAs and SEWA BSNL activists also. Com K. Sebastin GS, Com G L Jogi President and Com Arvind Dahiya AGS addressed the CEC.

Com GS, President and AGS in their address explained the history of this Association and the JTO cadre. Along with the change of designation, pay scales and status of JTO cadre, ie from ESP to JE and then to JTO, the name of the Association also changed from TESA to JETA(I), JETA(I) to JTOA(I), JTOA(I) to TEOA(I) and finally to SNEA(I). The pay scales also got changed from Rs 1400/- to Rs 1640/ in 1986, then to Rs 2000/ equivalent in 1996 and finally to E1A from 01.10.2000. The status also changed from Group C to Group B Gazetted in 1996 and then absorbed/recruited as an Executive in BSNL. JTO and SDE cadre got one time bound promotion each in 1990s, first time in the history of any central Govt department. All these achived due to continuous struggle of our senior comrades in the banner of JETA(I) / JTOA(I) / TEOA(I).

After formation of BSNL, TEOA was the only Association opposed the proposed absorption into BSNL without any terms and conditions like pay scales, promotion policy and fitment formula. All other Assns are ready to get absorbed in BSNL on an adhoc payment of Rs 2000/ offered by BSNL Management. TEOA legally and organizationally fought against this and come out successful. In 2002-03 through another historic struggle by SNEA(I) alone, Management agreed for E1A, E2A, ---- E6 pay scales (our demand was E2, E3, -- - and Management side offer was E1, E2, ---), Time Bound promotions between 4 to 6 years from JTO/JAO to SG JAG grade and point to point fitment. The EPF contribution @ 12% Basic plus IDA without ceiling instead of a fixed amount of 12% of Rs 6500/ with ceiling (paid upto 2005) for the BSNL recruited employees was another milestone. BSNL taken this decision in May 2005, Board approved it on 11.07.2005 and orders issued on 12.08.2005. On 18.1.2007 TBP policy announced which ensured 5 TBP in a span of maximum 26 years of service, another career breakthrough as a result of our struggle in 2002-03. Till that time hardly one or two TBP was available in DoT/BSNL from JTO to Lateral JTO and from SDE to Sr SDE after 12 years of service in each cadre. SNEA(I) fought the court case against LDCE which resulted in the promotion of about 900 JTOs of 2001 batch in the LDCE in 2008. After that SNEA(I) struggled for revamping the LDCE and OMR system introduced, descriptive type question pattern changed to objective type multiple choice questions, giving no chance for subjectivity. BSNLMS RR 2009 come into force on 14.07.2009 abolishing the bottle neck of JTS, ensuring promotions directly from SDE to DE/AGM and further upto GM/CGM in the coming days. A direct rect JTO was retiring with just one promotion as SDE till 2009, but BSNLMS RR ensured that the Executives are getting promotion upto DGM today and the younger generation will definitely reach upto GM/CGM. Further progress made in the BSNLMS RR in 2013-14 by increasing the regular quota from 50% to 75%, the real beneficiaries will be the younger generation.  After long legal hurdle, last LDCE also conducted for the vacancies upto 2009-10. In all the promotions and postings, SNEA(I) was committed to protect the interest of SC/ST comrades as per provisions of constitution and Govt orders and even ensured that 15% and 7.5% quota is maintained for postings also. Now we are focusing on the promotion from JTO to SDE, year to year LDCE, SDE/Adhoc DE to DE Regular and DE to DGM promotions. JTO to SDE promotion in Civil/Electrical in both seniority and LDCE quota became current. The amendment of BSNLMS RR for Civil/Electrical wings for EE promotion, notional pay for JTO(C/E) etc w.e.f 01.10.2000 at par with JAO cadre, first TBP uniformly after 4 years, notional date of promotion for the LDCE candidates in line with court order etc are pursued by the Assn.

Our priority issues and important cadre issues are a) the standard pay scale of E2, E3 etc for JTO/JAO, SDE/AO etc b) 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees, c) Time Bound functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy etc. SNEA(I) is committed to struggle for the settlement of these issues which will change the career prospects of entire BSNL Executives.

Role of SNEA(I) was unique one in settling several issues like GSM tender in 2007, ITS issue, 78.2% IDA fitment, BWA spectrum refund, procurement of materials, 3G roaming issue, revival of BSNL etc etc. We are committed to the revival of BSNL.

Both leaders appealed to all the Executives to work for the membership verification, for the Unity of the Executives, for a SINGLE STRONG REPRESENTATIVE ASSOCIATION IN BSNL as in other CPSUs. This will be for the speedy settlement of cadre issues, for the revival of BSNL and to secure the job security of our young comrades.
