DoT had raised certain queries on replacement scales for pre-revised E1A, E2A pay scales for JTOs, SDEs & equivalent cadres  <<<<Click here for the DoT letter dated 19.05.2017>>>>

 

It is learnt that BSNL Management on 12.06.2017 while replying the queries of DoT mentioned that BSNL is requesting for E2 and E3 scales in replacement of pre-revised E1A and  E2A i.e. Part-I of the proposal in BSNL’s letter dated 06.06.2016 for replacement of E1A and E2A with E2 & E3 being a residual issue of 2ndPRC and may be approved. The Part-II of the BSNL’s proposal will be taken up at the time of 3rd PRC.

 

Though the BSNL Management has not withdrawn its proposal sent on 06.06.2016 but this revised proposal is impracticable wherein a section of executives’ pay will be revised with effect from 01.01.2007 as per 2ndPRC report and other section of executives subsequent pay up-gradation will be taken up at the time of 3rdPRC.

AIBSNLEA will continue its efforts to get implemented the BSNL’s earlier proposal sent to DoT on 06.06.2016 to provide justice to all the executives in order to remove their pay anomaly and stagnation.

20.06.2017: Meeting of GS, FS and AGS (GS) with PGM (Pers.) BSNL Corporate Office:

 

As directed by CMD BSNL, PGM (Pers), BSNL Corporate Office held a meeting with AIBSNLEA to discuss the complaint lodged by us against the illegal promotion orders for 42 officers issued by Pers Cell for the promotion from DE to DGM from the list of 147 executives whose seniority has been quashed by the Hon’ble High Court Kerala and direction was given to BSNL “to be placed their seniority against the SDEs (T) vacancies of the year 1994-95, 1995-96 and 1996-97 (up to 22.07.1996) according to their merit as also their eligibility to appear for combined examination. The eligibility year has to be considered since; one combined examination was held for three years. A candidate entitled to appear in 1996 (by reason of completing five years of regular service in the feeder category on the January of the year) cannot be placed in the vacancy of 1994-95. However, high his rank may be, if the seniority list require any recast on the above lines, obviously, the official respondent ought to do so”. But the Pers cell pleaded that they have fixed up 147 SDEs (T) LDCE quota seniority as per 1986 SDE RR on the basis of year of recruitment since the Hon’ble High Court Kerala judgement has been challenged by the respondents in the Hon’ble Supreme Court and it has grant “status quo” in the year 2013. We explained that Hon’ble Supreme Court has further delivered its the judgement to recast the TES GR-B seniority on the basis of Rulr-206 and upheld the seniority  lists no.1 to 17 as sacrosanct  instead of the seniority list numbers 1 to 5 prepared on the basis of Rule-1966 i.e. year of recruitment basis. Hence, the seniority of 147 SDEs (T) of LDCE quota has to be decided by examining their seniority as per Hon’ble High Court Kerala directions but the Pers Cell BSNL CO is not ready to hear our arguments.

 

In view of this, the affected candidates are to pursue in the Hon’ble Supreme Court for an early decision on the pending SLP in the matter of the seniority of 147 LDCE quota SDEs. BSNL Pers Cell is not ready to rectify their mistake in the line of Hon’ble High Court Kerala Judgment by placing 147 SDEs of LDCE quota in proper manner in the revised seniority list as per the Hon’ble Supreme Court judgement delivered in the year 2015. We have to continue our protest in this regard. GS, FS, AGS (HQ) attended and deliberated in the meeting.

 

After the above discussions we discussed regarding promotion order of left out DGMs (Engg.). We requested for issuing promotions orders for DGM (Engg) of the 49 officers for whom the CPC has been completed. PGM (Pers) mentioned that the approval of the competent authority has been received and tomorrow these 49 DGMs promotion orders will be issued. We further requested to expedite CPC of 25 left out DGMs also. PGM (Pers) assured to hold CPC at the earliest and issue of DGM promotion order of the remaining left out cases.

 

CGM MH circle has appealed to all SDOs to achieve the Landline and broadband  Targets as  we are nearing  Q1 ending.

CS AIBSNLEA extends the appeal to all SDOs to put in extra effort  and complete the LL and BB targets  for Q1. Further issues, problems if any are  faced by and SDOs  then the same may be brought to light at this stage . This will  enable us to solve those issues and ensure that do not reoccur and hamper our  remaining Quarter targets.

CS AIBSLNEA is constantly in touch with CGM and discussing on issues brought to his notice regarding target achievement and performance enhancement and the same are being positively being responded and resolved by  the administration

16.06.2017:                          It is time for introspection to Majority Association

AIBSNLEA have been fighting for the settlement of all the legitimate HR issues and viability of BSNL since its inception and achieved many mile stones during the period by getting implemented grant of perks  to executives w.e.f. 01.01.2005, implementation of EPP w.e.f 18.01.2007, filling of all vacant STS Group-‘A’ level posts in all discipline by getting clearance from DoT in Sept.-2006, Transparent Transfer Policy-2008, BSNL MSRR-2009, Implementation of 2nd PRC recommendations in BSNL with full 30% fitment benefits in BSNL, IDA Pension revision for BSNL Pensioners issued on 15.03.2011, Merger of 50% DA with Basic Pay w.e.f. 01.01.2007 effectively amounting to 78.2% for the purpose of fitment and pay fixation in the revised pay scales, Withdrawal of 60:40 provision in  the Pension Rules 37A for BSNL employees and payment of 78.2% fitment benefit to BSNL Pensioners, Withdrawal of MT RR-2008 and 2011, Regularization of adhoc level executives in all disciplines, filling up of the vacant DGM/SE posts in all disciplines, 3% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees, framing of JTO RR-2014 and conduction of JTO LICE, Creation of  PPS and Sr. PPS posts, regularization of offg. JTOs,  Rs. 22820/- Pay anomaly resolution by formation of Committee and active participation in all the struggles of BSNL Unions and Associations to protect the interest of BSNL etc.

 

Recently in December-2016 BSNL Management conducted referendum for majority executive Association wherein AIBSNLEA by getting 18,400 votes got Support Association status and thereafter continuously trying to protect  the interest of all the BSNL executives i.e. whether it is BSNL recruited or absorbed in BSNL. After referendum under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations one agitation was launched for the settlement of the burning demands i.e. pay loss of post 2007 recruited executives, standard pay scales by replacing E1A by E2, E2A by E3 and subsequent up-gradation of pay scales E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7, 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees, CPSU Cadre hierarchy as per the Khan Committee report, 3rd PRC implementation with 15% fitment benefit and pension revision of BSNL pensioners etc. On the positive assurance given by the CMD BSNL and Director (HR) the agitation programme was deferred. But immediately just after the deferment of the agitation, BSNL management took vindictive actions against the General Secretaries of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA by issuing “Show Cause” notice, deduction of salary of two days DHARNA organized on 27th and 28th Dec-2016 by cancelling the sanctioned E/L and C/L etc.

 

Thereafter, on 28th March-2017, DoT administration issued ‘Presidential Directives’ for E1A and E2A intermediary pay scales which created unrest and accordingly AIBSNALEA and AITEEA organized protest demonstration on 06.04.2017 wherein Com. GS, AIGETOA was also requested to sign the notice but he expressed his inability in signing the agitation notice of United Forum and mentioned  that he is in favour of Joint struggle of all the Associations and he along with his members already actively participated in demonstrations made on 30/03/2017 by the Majority Association. Com. GS, AIGETOA was requested by GS AIBSNLEA and GS, AITEEA for serving a agitation notice under the banner of United Forum for protest actions, but GS AIGETOA was perhaps committed to Majority Association not to go for agitation on the platform of United Forum and insisted us also to come and join with them rather than starting agitation. And finally they formed Joint Forum and served a notice of agitation on 10.04.2017 when the GS AIBSNLEA was on LTC at Port Blair w.e.f. 09.04.2017 to 16.04.2017. I explained to GS AIGETOA and GS SNEA that at present I am away from CHQ and after having the talk with our CHQ Office bearers and Circle Secretaries, I shall be able to take the decision because just three months before referendum has taken place wherein lot of hot exchanges have taken place, so immediate joint struggle is not possible. We have to convince and mentally prepare our members at base level for joint struggle then only it would be possible for us to come together but it was ignored for which the reasons are best known to them and finally they served the notice under the banner of Joint Forum denouncing United Forum. Now,  Majority Associations is alleging support Association to derail all the HR issues which JF and BSNL Management jointly trying to resolve.

 

The fact remains that Jt. Forum in collision with the BSNL Management is trying to sabotage the important HR issues which the support Association have brought on track i.e. E1-A by E2, E2-A by E3 and subsequent up-gradation of pay scales E3 by E4, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7 which was approved by Management Committee of BSNL Board and was sent to DoT on 06.06.2016 during the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA.

 

The majority Association since beginning tried to sabotage it and after referendum pressurized the BSNL Management to trunked the proposal making it half i.e. upto E1-A by E2 and E2-A by E3 only wherein double fixation in E3 grade, means one executive will remain in E3 scale for 10 years in violation of EPP which will invite litigations. Knowing well this fact they are befooling the executives and trying to harm the interest of all the executives of BSNL. They pressurized BSNL Management to withdraw the earlier 06.06.2016 proposal and halved it up-to  E1-A by E2 and E2-A by E3 only. But with the vigorous efforts of AIBSNLEA, they could not succeed in it and now BSNL has replied the queries of DoT pleading that BSNL’s earlier proposal of 06.06.2016 may be considered in two parts. AIBSNLEA will continue to make its efforts for up-gradation of all the pay  scales E1-A to E2, E2-A to E3, E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7 in the larger interest of all the executives.

 

Majority Association is sabotaging the Khan Committee report on CPSU Cadre Hirarchy  by allowing  MT recruitment and allowing post based promotions up-to STS level only. We will strongly oppose such acts of Majority Association.

 

30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees precipitated after the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA only. Majority Association never contributed in this regard.

 

PGM (PF) Ms. A. Panda, Committee on pay anomaly of Rs. 22820/- of JTOs/JAOs post recruited 1.1.2007 was constituted on the demand of AIBSNLEA and AITEEA by CMD BSNL. But the Majority Association trying to sabotage the committee report raising huge financial implication to benefit thousands of executives in the report in line of Estt. Cell  pleadings.

 

Notional pay fixation issue of JTOs/SDEs(C/E/Arch/TF) Engineering wings and PA cadre was initiated and taken  by AIBSNLEA and with it’s sincere efforts only the management committee of BSNL Board has cleared it and now BSNL board approval is awaited. This issue was hijacked by majority association. E1+5 advance increment benefit to JTOs/JAOs could be settled by AIBSNLEA through KCGK Pillai Committee report. Now JTO(SRD), JAO 2013 batch and PAs case has been cleared by BSNL Management committee and awaiting BSNL board approval.


Diversion of MT Quota posts to seniority quota posts in Telecom Engg. could take place first and then diversion of MT Quota posts to seniority quota posts of CAOs cadre got cleared from Management committee of BSNL board and now waiting for BSNL board approval. E5 to E6 time bound promotion and EPP to DGM adhoc by modification in BSNL MS RR got approved from Management committee of BSNL and now waiting for BSNL board approval. AD(O/L) cadre restructuring  got approved from Management committee of BSNL and now DOT approval is awaited. All the queries asked by DoT has been replied by BSNL. About 1200 DGM(Engg.) and about 250 DGM(Fin)/ DGM(TF), about 100 SE(Elect./Civil) promotion could become possible with the untiring  efforts of AIBSNLEA.

 

Sincere efforts are being made to get expedite CPCs from JTO to SDE, SDE to DE, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, CAO to DGM(Finance), JTO(C/E) to SDE(C/E), SDE(c) to EE(C), etc by taking some solution in view of the legal opinion on Hon’ble High Court Chandigarh judgment and DP&T guidelines on SC/ST roster implementation.

 

In this manner AIBSNLEA will continue to work to safeguard the interest of all the executives of BSNL.

 

Majority association after referendum should honestly concentrate for the settlement of pending HR issues in the interest of all the executives instead of doing vote bank politics. Majority association should not worry on support association affairs. Support association knows it’s responsibility well.

 

It’s a fact that AIBSNLEA got about 18400 plus votes during referendum and got support association status with the help of AIGETOA and AITEEA. AIBSNLEA is committed to protect the interest of its members and supporters. Now AIGETOA leadership preferred to align with Majority Association under the banner of Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations under the assurance that they will achieve their demands and no vindictive actions will be there against them which the GS AIGETOA faced  “Show Cause” notice during the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA. Now BSNL Management leaving Majority Association leaders aside has victimized  GS AIGETOA by serving majority penalty charge sheet. It has caused panic and now majority Association is desperate to mount pressure on BSNL Management to withdraw the vindictive actions through the agitation of BSNL Unions and Associations on the pretext of 3rdPRC implementation, whereas, CMD BSNL with all the Board of Directors met Hon’ble MOS(C) (I/C) on 16.06.2017 and pleaded for implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit, then where is the need of going on strike at this juncture. However, we are against any victimization of Association/Union leaders/members for organizing legitimate Trade Union activities but they should be fair in their approach.

 

AIBSNLEA never harmed the interest of anyone and never deviated from its policies under the pressure like Majority association. AIBSNLEA is using all the channels to get implemented 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit and pension revision. In case if any difficulty is faced in this regard it  will not hesitate to take harder Trade Union action programmes in term of even indefinite strike.

 

AIBSNLEA was never interested to mention above facts but the majority Association write up on their website 15.06.2017 has forced to explain.

Meeting with PGM (Pers.) BSNL Corporate Office, New Delhi :

GS along with CWC member Uttarakhand Shri G S Bisht, Vice President Chhattisgarh Madam Anuradha and representative from Rajasthan Circle met PGM (Pers.) regarding the restructuring case of AD (OL). PGM (Pers.) discussed with Director (PSU) Shri Pawan Gupta and requested him for early clearance of the issue. The matter of SLP regarding 2002 R/R was also discussed during the meeting. BSNL Management has shown its positive view in both the issues.

 

Why AIBSNLEA is not participating in the agitation call given by the Unions and Associations of BSNL?

A meeting of BSNL Unions / Associations was held at New Delhi on 02.06.2017 to discuss the implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL. The meeting was convened by Com. P Abhimanyu GS, BSNLEU and was presided over by GS, AIBSNLEA.

 

During discussions, as GS, AIBSNLEA while expressing our concern on 3rd PRC implementation we demanded that the particular Clause of the Rule 14 (1) of the BSNL (REA) Rules, 2013 which prevents executive Association's participation along with the non-executives unions' agitation programs i.e. "Further, the Association will not join hands with the non-executives' unions for furtherance of their issues and / or participate in any kind of joint trade union action." should be deleted / withdrawn.

 

We further explained that during the agitation program of United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations comprising of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA, for organizing "DHARNA" on 27th and 28th December 2016, all the three General Secretaries were issued "Show Cause" notice to initiate the disciplinary action under BSNL CDA conduct rules, wherein violation of Executives Associations recognition rules was also the charge against us. The sanctioned E/L and C/L for two days on 27th & 28th December 2016 of GS, AIBSNLEA and GS AITEEA were cancelled and a dies-non was made with two days salary cut. This issue was immediately brought to the notice of all the Unions/ Associations and accordingly GS BSNLEU and GS NFTE met CMD BSNL and Director (HR) BSNL and protested against this and gave a letter of protest but BSNL management did not withdrawn the "Show Cause" notices and "salary cut" even after a lapse of five months. We explained that under these circumstances, where we represent the executives of DGM/DE/CAO/EE/SDE/AO/JTO/JAO ranks, it is difficult to participate in the strike call because these executives are the soft target of the management and AIBSNLEA do not have any recognized channel to protect these executives. Hence, BSNL Unions/ Associations first take up the issue with BSNL Management for withdrawal of all the vindictive actions and to stop such actions against the legitimate Trade Union activities of the BSNL Unions/ Associations. But unfortunately it was not given due consideration.

 

The Demand of unconditionally withdrawing the BSNL C.O. letter dated 08.05.2017 banning all trade union activities in BSNL was related to the ongoing agitation of Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations. In compliance to the Hon'ble Patiala Court,New Delhi orders it was banned. It cannot be imposed on all the unions/ associations. Presently the matter is being defended by the Joint Forum in the Hon'ble Patiala House Court. This issue should be discussed with BSNL management by both the majority Unions/Associations. We impressed upon that making it a demand of "strike" along with the demand of 3rd PRC implementation is not correct as it dilutes the main demand.

 

Moreover, the Joint Forum of Executive Associations' agitation was mainly to get replacement of E-1A by E2 and E-2A by E3 only wherein they are demanding withdrawal of BSNL's earlier proposal which was send to DOT on 06.06.2016 during the agitation and the demand of United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations comprising of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA as (1). Replacement of E-1A by E-2 and E-2A by E-3 w.e.f. 1.1.2007 and (2). Upgradation of subsequent pay scales E-3 by E-4, E-4 by E-5, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 w.e.f. 1.1.2007.

 

This demand of Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations has trunked the BSNL's complete proposal and has halved the demand. Hence, AIBSNLEA can't associate with such association's agitation call.

 

In view of the above, AIBSNLEA will extend its solidarity support to the agitation call of BSNL Unions/ Associations on common demand of 3rd PRC related issues implementation.

 

We appreciate the efforts taken by BSNL  Management in DOT for the implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefits for BSNL employees. Now, CMD BSNL along with all the BSNL Board members are meeting with Hon'ble MOS (C) )(I/C) on 16.06.2017 at 2:30 PM demanding 3rd PRC implementation with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL.

 

In the meeting conducted by CMD BSNL with the representatives of BSNL Unions/ Associations on 03.06.2017, CMD BSNL categorically told that he will make his best efforts for the implementations of 3rdPRC in BSNL and in case he fails in getting implemented 3rd PRC in BSNL he will resign from the post of CMD BSNL owning the responsibility. It is really appreciable stand of CMD BSNL. We should trust his efforts and extend our fullest support to him in his endeavour.

 

AIBSNLEA is continuously making its sincere efforts in convincing the officers in DOT/DPE in person in support of 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit. We have also requested Hon'ble MOS (C) (I/C) and Secretary (T) to grant us a meeting to represent our views in this regard. Let us, continue our efforts to ensure implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL.

 

14.06.2017  GS met with PGM (EW) and discussed regarding

(a) Filling up of the vacant SDEs (E) Posts: We extended our thanks for issuing 12 SDEs ( E ) regular promotion and requested to fill-up all vacant ( about 122) SDEs( Electrical) posts by expediting CPC. PGM (EW) mentioned that the proposal to initiate CPC to fill-up all vacant SDEs (Electrical) posts is processed but the CPC can be expedited and promotion orders can be issued only after the decision is taken by the competent authority in view of the Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh judgement  and DoP&T instructions on SC/ST roster implementation. He assured an early action in this regard.

(b) Re-diversion of EE (Electrical) Post from Rajasthan Telecom Circle to Gujarat Telecom Circle: We requested PGM (EW) for re-diversion of EE (Electrical) post from Rajasthan Telecom Circle to Gujarat Telecom Circle since the EE (Electrical) posts are already vacant in Rajasthan Telecom Circle. PGM (EW) assured to look into the matter.

 

12.06.2017 United forum leaders meeting with CMD BSNL:

GS & GS AITEEA meet CMD BSNL and request for grant of Rs.22820/- pay scales to the JTOs/ JAOs post recruited year 2007.

After 2nd PRC report their pay has been reduced to Rs.19020/- in the revised pay scale i.e. E1+5 advance increment. We also quoted some examples where in dispension in the cut of date has been given and demanded the same dispension in this case also.  CMD after detail discussions assured to look into the Ms Panda PGM (FP) committee report and to take some solution to remove the pay anomaly.

Request to Grant some facilities to AIBSNLEA:  We requested CMD BSNL for the consideration of some facilities to AIBSNLEA for its smooth functioning. CMD assured to look into the matter.

DoT queries on replacement scales for pre-revised E1A, E2A pay scales for JTOs, SDEs & equivalent cadres.

It is learnt that DoT has asked certain queries on replacement scales for pre-revised E1A, E2A pay scales for JTOs, SDEs & equivalent cadres. <<<<Click here for the letter>>>>

 

It is also learnt that now BSNL Management has decided to withdraw BSNL's earlier proposal dated 06.06.2016 wherein it was requested to DoT for grant of approval for-

(i) Pay scale of JTO & SDE (& equivalent executives) may be revised to E2 and E3 respectively as replacement of pre-revised scale of E1A / E2A w.e.f. 01.01.2007.

(ii) The pay scales E3, E4, E5 & E6 may be up-graded to E4, E5, E6 & E7 w.e.f. 01.01.2007 in respect of the cadres of Sr. SDE, AGM, DGM and SG-DGM respectively and appropriate changes may accordingly be approved in the BSNL Executive Promotion Policy.

 

BSNL Management is now proposing to limit replacement of Pay scale of JTO & SDE (& equivalent executives) to E2 and E3 respectively as replacement of pre-revised scale of E1A / E2A w.e.f. 01.01.2007 with double pay fixation in E3 Pay scale means an executive will remain in E3 scale for 10 years.

 

This proposal will invite many litigations and frustration amongst the stagnating executives. AIBSNLEA will continue to fight against these odds.

05.06.2017:

AIBSNLEA Stand on Standard Pay Scales issue and clarification thereof

Dear Comrades,

AIBSNLEA is sincerely trying for the last so many years for the effective and practical implementation of Standard pay scales (E2- for JTO/JAO and Equivalent cadres and E3 – for SDE/AO and Equivalent cadres). While the discussion came up initially, from several sources it was evident that without cascading effect (E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7) it cannot be implemented in BSNL. If at all standard pay scale is implemented without cascading effect, its damn sure that so many litigations will be filed in the courts due to the deadly issues of junior/ senior, heavy pay loss to the executives in the E2A scale, on the wedge of getting E3 compared to the executives at the beginning of E2A Scale and also holding an executive for 10 years in E3 scale is unlike any other PSUs. Thus practically the court cases will stop the implementation of Standard pay scales without cascading effect like so many promotions of JTO/SDE are stopped through court intervention. In addition to these many of senior executives are stagnating for the last couple of years without any annual increment.

By foreseeing these realties, AIBSNLEA took a stand since beginning for the implementation of standard pay scales with cascading effect because we want to implement this for the benefits of all the BSNL executives. More over, this implementation of standard pay scales with cascading effect is doubly benefitting for the young talents of BSNL working in the non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A. Those who want to see that standard pay scales are not implemented in BSNL at any cost, can only opt for implementation of standard pay scales without cascading effect. During the agitation of United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA ,Management Committee of BSNL Board deliberated over the issue at length and decided to recommend up-gradation of pay scales of E3, E4, E5 & E6 for Sr. SDE, AGM, DGM and SG-DGM and equivalent posts to E4, E5, E6 & E7 respectively w.e.f. 01.01.2007. Accordingly the proposal was sent to DoT vide letter number 1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 06.06.2016 for approval. But now the Majority Association is trying to get withdrawn the proposal and want to restrict the upgradation up to E2 and E3 Scales only. Hence they are harming the interest of all the BSNL Executives.

In spite of this, while DOT rejected the proposal of implementation of standard pay scales with cascading effect, AIBSNLEA also took a stand with the demand for implementation of standard pay scales without cascading effect with an expectation and symptoms that DOT will approve. DOT did not consider even implementation of E2 and E3 Pay Scales without cascading effect and approved E-1A and E-2A intermediatory Pay Scales.

But, what happened next is the outright rejection of the proposal. Who is responsible for this catastrophe? After referendum, one association, self-proclaimed as saviours of BSNL and BSNL executives, is recognised as Majority association gave trade union notice for the implementation standard pay scales for E2 & E3 alone to DOT and at a later stage withdrawn their demand for the reason known to them. When a recognised association demanding something and at a later stage unconditionally withdrawing the demands does clearly indicating that they are not serious on the demand of getting standard pay scales to BSNL Executives. This only triggered DOT to pronounce Presidential Orders for unwanted E1/E2 scales. How that association can wash off their hands? Do they think they can eye wash others from their calculated move by yelling and shedding crocodile tears in public after things are happened as per their wish ?

Now what a responsible association has to do? AIBSNLEA is doing for the benefits of all the executives without giving any scope for litigations. ....  .......  .....

 
03.06.2017:  

CS AIBSNLEA MH thanks CGM MH and GM HR for considering "our request" of posting JTOs on basis of  marks obtained and at the same time considering  "as is where is basis"  posting in  maximum cases . Further CS thanks  the administration for carrying out posting in  transparent and crystal clear manner.        Order copy  <1> <2>     

03.06.2017:  APAR guidelines issued by FC for outstanding grading  <copy>

 

02.06.2017:  GS writes to Shri Anupam Srivastava, CMD BSNL regarding reply to DoT queries on replacement scales for pre-revised E1A, E2A pay scales for JTOs, SDEs & equivalent cadres. Wherein it is mentioned that replacement of E1A and E2A pay scales with E2 and E3 scales only, keeping other scales untouched, will have implications for already approved E3 pay scale for Sr. SDE because of the provisions of the Executive Promotion Policy (EPP). Under these circumstances, an executive will have to remain in the same E3 scale for a span of ten years.

 

This is against the provisions of the EPP, implemented in BSNL after recommendations of the High Power Committee chaired by the then Addl. Secretary (T), DoT Shri Y.S. Bhave wherein five time bound financial up-gradations from E1A (4-6 years) -> E2A (5 years) -> E3 (5 years) -> E4 (5 years) -> E5 (5 years) -> E6 have been provided to BSNL executives.

 

Management Committee of BSNL Board has deliberated over the issue at length and decided to recommend up-gradation of pay scales of E3, E4, E5 & E6 for Sr. SDE, AGM, DGM and SG-DGM and equivalent posts to E4, E5, E6 & E7 respectively w.e.f. 01.01.2007. Accordingly it was sent to DoT vide letter number 1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 06.06.2016 for approval.

 

Some of the senior executives are stagnating in E5 scale from the last 1-2 years. Many of them, who have fortunately or unfortunately become DGM and bearing higher responsibilities, are deprived off the time bound promotions to the E-6 scale under the EPP in the name of BSNL MSRR. As such they are not having any motivating factor.

 

Therefore, we have requested  to kindly request DoT for approval of-

(i) Pay scale of JTO & SDE (& equivalent executives) may be revised to E2 and E3 respectively as replacement of pre-revised scale of E1A / E2A w.e.f. 01.01.2007.

(ii) The pay scales E3, E4, E5 & E6 may be up-graded to E4, E5, E6 & E7 w.e.f. 01.01.2007 in respect of the cadres of Sr. SDE, AGM, DGM and SG-DGM respectively and appropriate changes may accordingly be approved in the BSNL Executive Promotion Policy.

 

The executives from the scales E3, E4, E5 and E6 would be simply placed to the next higher scale i.e. E4, E5, E6 & E7, most of them will not get any financial benefit even of a single penny except those whose stagnation comes to an end.

 

Further, it is also requested that persuasions may be done for approval of the proposal of deduction of pension contribution payable to DoT on actual pay of an executive instead of the highest of his/her pay scale. This will reduce the additional financial implications on BSNL to bare minimum as the said additional financial burden on BSNL would remain only on account of increased pay and allowances in respect of directly recruited JTOs / JAOs and a few number of DR-DGMs.

 

It is reliably learnt that BSNL Management is now withdrawing its earlier proposal dated 06.06.2016 and limiting replacement of Pay scales E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 only. It has caused serious frustration, resentment and agitations among the senior executives i.e. SDEs, DEs, and DGMs whose Pay scales are stagnated and they are being forced to remain in E3 Pay scales for 10 Years in violation of EPP provisions.

 

We strongly believe that frequent agitations are noxious to the viability of BSNL and put a question mark on the dealing ability of HR Management. We, therefore requested to kindly resolve the whole issue in one go considering all probable pros and cons instead of doctoring it in piecemeal. Withdrawal of BSNL’s earlier proposal dated 06.06.2016 in this regard will forced us to go for agitation.

22.05.2017: Meeting with CMD, BSNL:

GS, FS, AGS (HQ) and Advisor (HQ) met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding:

a) Implementation of E-2 and E-3 pay scales as replacement of E-1A and E-2A and upgradation of Subsequent pay scales:  We expressed our serious concern against the BSNL’s latest letter to DOT in limiting replacement E-1A by E-2 and E-2A by E-3 pay scales revising its earlier proposal of up-gradation of subsequent pay scales E-3 by E-4, E-4 by E-5, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7.  This limitation will create disparity among the pay scales of Executives in BSNL. Several seniors executives in E-5 scale are stagnated for the last two years and executives will be forced to continue in E-3 pay scale for more than 10 years which will cause further frustration. We categorically told that in case the subsequent pay scales are not up-graded, then against this disparity AIBSNLEA will be forced to go on agitation. CMD after discussion assured to look in to the matter.

 

b) Implementation of 3rd PRC: We appraised CMD about our discussions with Addl. Secretary (T) in this regard and requested CMD BSNL to kindly use his good office in DPE through Secretary (T) to get approved the 3rd PRC report implementation in BSNL with 15% fitment.  CMD assured to discuss the matter with Secretary (T)

 

c) Illegal promotion of 41 DGMs (Engg.) of 147 SDEs of LDCE quota whose seniority have been quashed by Hon’ble High Court Kerala and SLP is pending in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India:  We expressed our resentment against the illegal promotion of ineligible DEs to 41 DGM (Engg) posts of 147 SDEs of LDCE quota whose seniority is quashed by the Hon’ble High Court Kerala and SLP is pending in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. The JTOs joined in the year 1995,1994,1993,1992,1991 and 1990  have been assigned seniority  as SDEs against the vacancy of year 1994,1995, 1996 which has been quashed by Hon’ble High Court Kerala because these JTOs were eligible to write TES Gr-‘B’ examination on completion of 5 years of JTO regular service and thereafter only they can eligible to write TES Gr.’B’ LDCE.  Here the JTOs who were not born in the cadre of JTOs are given TES Gr ‘B’ seniority prior to their JTO joining in the department.  CMD BSNL after detail discussions assured to get examine the case at the earliest.

(A) Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit: We inquired about the outcome of the Group of Secretaries meeting held in Cabinet Secretariat on 12.05.2017 which was attended by Addl. Secretary (T). AST informed that earlier 3rd PRC matter was being dealt by Member (S) but he himself has wrote in the file and transferred the matter to his section to deal the matter. Hence, in the same line of DoT which was earlier presented by Member (S) in the previous meeting of Group of Secretaries. He has also represented the same views of DoT based on the proposal submitted by BSNL and approved from Hon’ble MOS (C).

During the presentation Cabinet Secretary asked to the Group of Secretaries and Secretary DPE that is there any opposition / suggestion / modification in the 3rd PRC Report by the respective Ministries representing various PSUs. Secretary DPE clarified that there is no opposition / suggestion / modification in the 3rd PRC Report but there are some proposals for relaxation in the 3rd PRC recommendations for which Cabinet Secretary mentioned that major deviations from PRC report are not acceptable but some minor deviations / relaxations may be considered by DPE. AST further informed that specific case of BSNL was not discussed in the meeting.

It is under stood that DPE will finalize the 3rd PRC recommendations shortly and there after will submit to Cabinet for approval.

Issue related to IDA Pension revision of BSNL Pensioners was also discussed but Cabinet Secretary categorically told that since Pension revision is not the issue related to PRC hence cannot be discussed in this meeting and may be dealt separately by the concerned Ministry.

(B) Replacement of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 and subsequent up-gradation of E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7 in BSNL: We requested to approve the BSNL’s earlier proposal of replacement of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 and subsequent up-gradation of E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7. AST mentioned that he got approved the E1A and E2A pay scales from Hon’ble MOS (C) and issued the Presidential Directives after having a thorough analysis and based on the BSNL’s first proposal submitted in the year 2009. However, in case if any review is considered DoT will take an overall view in this regard.

(C) Clarification on change of DNI after Post Based Promotion under EPP: We requested to issue clarification on change of DNI after Post Based Promotion under EPP. We further requested not to make any recoveries in case if the DNI is shifted after 12 months. AST assured for no recovery.

(D) Creation of Tower Subsidiary of BSNL: AST informed that the matter has been discussed in Govt. wherein Rs. 580 Crore loan against the Stamp Duty has to be paid by the Tower Subsidiary Company which will not be paid by BSNL but the Tower Subsidiary Company will take loan from banks and will repay within a span of seven and half year. The creation of Tower Subsidiary Company will be under the 100% control of BSNL and it will be mandatory on the part of Tower Subsidiary Company to safe guard the interest of BSNL in all circumstances.  

 

Meeting with GM (FP), BSNL Corporate Office:

GS, FS and CS MH Circle met with GM (FP) and discussed regarding:

(A) CPC from JAO to AO, AO to CAO: We requested to expedite the CPCs from JAO to AO and AO to CAO. GM (FP) mentioned that the CPC process from AO to CAO has been started to fill-up about 700 AO Vacant posts which will cover entire JAO – 2010 Batch. APARs/VCRs have been called for. AO to CAO CPC is depending on the basis of SLP outcome in the Hon’ble Supreme Court. SLP has already been filed in the Hon’ble Supreme Court against the judgment of Hon’ble High Court Chandigarh. He assured an early action in this regard.

(B) CPC from CAO to DGM (F): We requested to fill-up all vacant DGM (F) posts. GM (FP) mentioned that the CPC to fill-up about 70 DGM (F) vacant posts is being initiated shortly and APARs/VCRs will be collected.

(C) Consideration of request / tenure transfer cases in the cadre of Accounts personnel: We requested for consideration of request / tenure transfer cases in the cadre of Accounts personnel. GM (FP) assured to look into the pending cases.

 

17.05.2017 Meeting with PGM (Estt), BSNL Corporate Office:

GS, AGS (HQ) and CS MH Circle met with PGM (Estt), BSNL Corporate Office and discussed regarding:

(A) Notional Pay fixation of all the up-graded Pay scales w.e.f. 01.10.2000 – Case of JTO/SDE (C/E/Arch/TF) and PA Cadre: We requested PGM (Estt) to get approved the matter from BSNL Management Committee Meeting by clarifying the earlier queries of the Management Committee. AIBSNLEA has already submitted the suggestions for its implementation. PGM (Estt) informed that the matter is in the agenda of BSNL Management Committee being held today and she will try to get approved it. She confirmed that AIBSNLEA views has been taken care in this regard.

(B) Replacement of E1A and E2A by E2 and E3 scales and subsequent pay scales up-gradation: PGM (Estt) mentioned that at present as directed by CMD BSNL a revised proposal to replace E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 has been sent to DoT for consideration. Regarding up-gradation of subsequent Pay Scale proposal she told that this will be dealt separately. We pleaded that one stroke only the issue should have been settled to avoid further anomaly i.e. double pay fixation in E-3 scale or keeping one executive in E-3 scale for 10 years etc. PGM (Estt) advised to discuss the matter with CMD BSNL.

(C) Rs. 22820/- Pay fixation to JTOs/JAOs of post 2007 batches: We requested to consider the case of Pay anomaly of JTOs/JAOs post recruited year 2007. PGM (Estt) mentioned that in her views the issue is not justified after the cut of date of 01.01.2007 to give fixation in the pre revised pay scales. Also it will cause huge financial implications. We requested to consider the case sympathetically to avoid Pay anomaly.

(D) TTA to JTO Promotions through DR Quota Pay fixation case: We requested to re-consider the case in view of the feedback given by AIBSNLEA to treat TTA to JTO DR quota as promotion after technical resignation. PGM (Estt) mentioned that in her views TTA to JTO DR quota recruitment cannot be treated as promotion. However, in Government, if such examples are there the same may be provided to her for consideration. PGM (Estt) also informed that some aggrieved officer have gone to the courts for relief. Let us wait till the out come of these court cases.

16.05.2017: Meeting with CMD, BSNL:

GS met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding:

(A) Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations in BSNL with 15% fitment:  We apprised CMD BSNL regarding our meeting with Jt. Secy (Admn) on DoT presentation to DPE by AST, DoT. CMD immediately discussed the matter with Director (HR) and Member (S) to confirm the developments. CMD categorically mentioned that in view of BSNL’s positive EBITA (i.e. Earning Before Interest, Taxes and Amortization), DoT should recommend 15% fitment to BSNL executives to DPE.  However, he assured to discuss the matter with Secretary (T) for favourable decision.  He also advised us to meet Secretary (T) and Secretary, DPE to achieve 15% fitment.

 

(B) Replacement of E-1A by E-2, E-2A by E-3 and subsequent pay scales up-gradation-  We requested CMD BSNL to use his good office in getting approved the BSNL’s earlier proposal for the replacement of E-1A by E-2, E2A by E-3  and  upgradation of subsequent  pay scales  as a permanent solution.  CMD BSNL mentioned that he will make effort in DOT to resolve the issue but the important issue is 3rd PRC.  We explained that replacement of pay scales need settlement before 3rd PRC only to avoid lowering of the  scales.

 

 Meeting with Joint Secretary (Admn.) DoT:

GS, AGS (HQ) met with Joint Secretary (Admn.), DoT and discussed regarding:

(A) Replacement of E1A by E-2 and E2 by E-3 and subsequent pay scales accordingly: We requested for consideration of replacement of E-1A by E-2, E-2A by E-3 and subsequent pay scales E-3 by E-4, E-4 by E-5, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 for JTO/SDE/Sr. SDE/DE/DGM equivalent executive cadres as per the initial proposal of BSNL to remove the stagnation and to resolve the issue once for all since there is not much financial implications. Joint Secretary (Admn.) DoT after detail discussions mentioned that DoT will take decision on the basis of overall purview.

 

(B) Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment: We inquired about the outcome of DoT presentation to DPE made by DoT on 12.5.2017. Joint Secretary (Admn.) informed that the presentation to DPE was made by Addl. Secretary (T) and not by him. The brief note on the discussion with DPE will be received from Addl. Secretary (T) soon.  He advised us to meet Addl. Secretary (T) to know the details. On our request of 15% fitment benefit to BSNL executives, Joint Secretary (Admn.) replied that in the past meeting with Secretary it was clarified that 3rd PRC report has already been notified and on the basis further decisions are to be taken.  It seems that DoT may not recommend 15% fitment to BSNL employees. Against this we have to decide strategies to achieve 15% fitment at any cost.

GS, VP II Com. Chakoli and AGS (HQ) met CMD BSNL, Director (HR) and PGM (Pers) in their chambers and extended sincere thanks for issuing the 438 DGM promotion orders.  We also extended thanks for increasing the number of vacancies from 388 to 513 counting vacant DGM posts consequent up on promotion of (ITS Officers) Addl.GM  to GM Posts.  During discussion CMD BSNL congratulated all the newly promoted DGMs and mentioned that now more than 1200 DGMs (Engg) promoted from Grp 'B' cadre are holding the posts of DGMs.  They should take the responsibility of their area and should be decisive in their day to day work.  All the time they should not depend on GM’s instructions/guidance.  He further mentioned that Group ‘B’ officers should feel motivated and contribute more for the growth of BSNL.  He also appreciated our approach that through discussion only such results can be achieved.  We assured him our fullest cooperation and support for the growth of BSNL.

 

Director (HR) also congratulated all the newly promoted DGMs and mentioned that they should contribute more for the growth of BSNL.  PGM (Pers) mentioned that efforts have been made to give posting on promotion as a policy with minimum disturbance.  Now all the promoted DGMs should give their best to BSNL since they are in field units to run the BSNL.  We assured them our fullest cooperation.

 

Dear comrades,  It is a historical achievement that more than 1200 DGMs (Engg) are now working in BSNL promoted from Gr.'B' cadre. This is the outcome of our sustained efforts during the last 11-12 years wherein we ensured that proper promotion policy is in place.  Hence, BSNL MSRR-2009 come in to existence which pave the way for the DGMs promotion in all the disciplines of BSNL. AIBSNLEA efforts will continue to ensure for  filling up of all the STS and SDE equivalent vacant posts to remove the stagnation in the carrier prospects of Gr.'B'  level Executives. About remaining 74 vacant DGM posts will be filled up shortly on receipt of the APARs and by holding CPC.  Let us , now  concentrate for filling  up of the vacant SDEs, DEs, AOs, CAOs, EEs(C),SDEs(C/E/TF) Posts immediately.

AIBSNLEA stand on replacement of existing pay scales:

AIBSNLEA has reiterated its stand on the replacement of intermediatory pay scales E1A, E2A and other scales E3,E4,E5, E6 by E2,E3,E4,E5,E6 and E7 respectively and accordingly has given a letter to CMD, BSNL and Secretary (Telecom) for reconsideration. In this connection BSNL has already sent a proposal to DoT vide letter number 1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 06.06.2016 for approval wherein-

 

(i) Pay scale of JTO & SDE (& equivalent executives) may be revised to E2 and E3 respectively as replacement of pre-revised scale of E1A / E2A w.e.f. 01.01.2007.

(ii) The pay scales E3, E4, E5 & E6 may be up-graded to E4, E5, E6 & E7 w.e.f. 01.01.2007 in respect of the cadres of Sr. SDE, AGM, DGM and SG-DGM respectively and appropriate changes may accordingly be approved in the BSNL Executive Promotion Policy.

 

AIBSNLEA is demanding the same for the benefit of all executives. AIBSNLEA represents all disciplines of the executive of BSNL whether it is BSNL absorbed or BSNL recruited, hence trying for benefit of all the cadres. In case, Executive Associations do not insist upon for the approval of above BSNLs proposal then all the Executive Cadres will never forgive them. Moreover replacement of E1A by E2, E2A by E3 and subsequent pay scales E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7 was first item in the Manifesto of AIBSNLEA for the Membership Verification held in December 2016. AIBSNLEA strongly opposed keeping one Executive in E3 Scale for ten years consequent upon revision of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 scales.    

 

JTO / JAO promotions will not end at the level of SDE / AO only but they will be promoted to the higher grades also. In view of this all the pay scales have to be up-graded as already accepted and recommended by the BSNL Management.

 

When AIBSNLEA is demanding up-gradation of scales up-to E-7 grade, how it can be unfortunate? AIBSNLEA has been demanding for the replacement of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3 but it cannot drop the demand of up-gradation of higher scales upto E7 grade since it represents all the cadres of BSNL executives.

 

In aforesaid proposal financial burden on BSNL towards perks & allowances of the executives would be bare minimum as the executives from the scales E3, E4, E5 and E6 would be simply placed to the next higher scale i.e. E4, E5, E6 & E7 and most of them will not get any financial benefit even of a single penny except those whose stagnation comes to an end. Hence, there would not be any cascading effect.

 

We therefore, just requested CMD, BSNL to insist upon DoT for approval of this proposal to resolve the problem once for all.

 

We have also requested BSNL Management to persuade for approval of the proposal of deduction of pension contribution payable to DoT on actual pay of an executive instead of the highest of his/her pay scale. This will reduce the additional financial implications on BSNL on account of pension contributions to bare minimum.

 

However, AIBSNLEA support will continue to AIGETOA for their strugle.
