Description: BSNL Fancy Mobile Number at Rs.2.25 Lakhs in eAuction


The next level of number selection is opting for a fancy number. Numbers having a sequence or any personal lucky number plays a vital role in number selection. BSNL is the only telecom company in India which had given an option to participate in auction to bid for the lucky number. In this line Gujarat people stands for the fancy number. An Ahmedabad based business man bid a BSNL Fancy number for 2.25 Lakh rupees.



Comrades, today the 22/5/2015, Circle Office issued the DGM  L/A order for five Executives after a long waiting of near about One month. We Congratulate all promotee Executives on their promotion as DGM L/A and Shri G K Upadhyay CGMT MH Circle for considering the request of Shri Dumare. By giving him PUNE Mobile. AS, Roll out process is in full speed at Pune, and it is a need of the hour, that an officer like Shri Dumare should lead such activities, who is very conversant with mobile activities.




Today Maharashtra Circle Office issued instructions to field units/SSA heads for reliving the Executives without further delay and with remarks that all representations for cancellation/change of posting or station/retention, are deemed to be disposed off and instructed  SSA heads  not to forward any representation to Circle Office. We appreciate the concern of Circle Office to give relief to aggrieved that is why Hon. CGMT has issued and signed the instructions personally.


We earnestly request Hon. CGMT that, please go through the enclosed list of the executives whose names are not appearing in the list enclosed with the order and we are confident that some genuine representatives which are not put up for consideration up to CGMT level for kind consideration and their names are appearing in this list. Already all such discrepancies were brought to the notice of Administration by Association.


CASE 1 Shri B D Gaikar SDE Nashik


Vide Circle off No A/STB/AE-20/SDE/ITPC-82 dtd 30/12/14 his revised transfer order was issued to ITPC Pune. This reference number is not refereed and mentioned in today’s instructions .C.O. N Delhi has issued Gaikar’s order to ITPC Pune. It is not cancelled from Corporate Office and Circle office order cannot supersede to C.O. order. We think that all these fact are not linked with the file by the administration at lower level for the reason best known to them.


Case No 2 Smt M H Gune SDE from A’Nagar


Smt Gune SDE A’Nagar already represented for cancellation of transfer on the basis of medical ground (Reasons of illness allowed to be exempted the official from transfer as per transfer policy approved by MH Circle and Corporate Office) Her representation also submitted in month of Feb/March 15 to CO Mumbai for kind consideration but we feel her application is also not at all moved for your kind consideration


Case NO 3 SmtS N Dhage  SDE A’Nagar


Com Dhage’s order was wrongly/purposely issued though she is not coming in the long stay. We are confident that her representation was also not processed from grass root level.


Case No 4  Smt S V Karve SDE GOA


Smt.  Karve is working in tenure station and requested to cancel her willingness to Pune and her representation also we are sure that it is not brought to the notice of your good self.


Case NO 5  Shri Kulkarni from  Raigad to Pune


Shri Kulkarni was transferred from Raigad to Pune six months back but he is not relived from Raigad. Now his name is not appearing in this list on the say that as per corporate order, he is under transfer to NE Circle and circle office will obey the corporate order first. This decision has put at loss of near about one and half lacks and mental agony. Here Circle Office will follow the corporate order and the same circle office will not follow the corporate office order in respect of ITPC issue


Case of Shri Pophale SDE Pune  By passing the corporate order to ITPC his name was included in transfer list keeping the name aside of  his senior in stay and issuing Shri.  Pophale’s order


Case NO 6 Shri BHEDE SDE Sangli


Shri  Bhede  SDE Sangli has getting continuous retention for last 2 years. His retention period expires on 31/12/14 but his name is not at all included in this list, for reason best known to administration.


We have been receiving so many complaints and expressions and views by our members that, it is a calculated move of the Circle Administration, and exhibits the poor HR approach towards Executives and keeping the NEW CGM in Dark, about all such ill incidences at circle office staff section administrator.


Comrades, please do not get Panic we will resolve the issue democratically by discussing the matter with authority across the table.  We appeal to Shri G K Upadhya Sir,  Please go through in all above cases in deep the truth will come up. Situation is becoming volatile and may lead to industrial unrest. We are confident CGMT is kind enough towards HR of executives and we are hopeful he will bestow the Justice

Please send your comments for lateral induction at STS level since we have talented JTOs/SDEs/DEs equivalent executives in BSNL. Lateral Induction will block the career prospectus of talented executives of BSNL.

Comrades in past DOT era we have experienced the impact of lateral induction at ADET level from ITS. It was grabbing both the TES Gr.B and STS post and years together our JTOS were waiting for their first promotion of SDE, hence please think and reciprocate the move of administration and react and send your comments to Circle /CHQ

All the /Branch Secretaries are requested to send their comments to C/S immediately in this regard on mail id jarun63@gmail.com

01.05.2015               At the outset I on my personnel behalf and on behalf of AIBSNLEA Maharashtra circle wish you all

HAPPY KAMGAR DIN                                 JAY MAHARASHTRA                          HAPPY MAHARASHTRA DIN  

                                            HAPPY 12 th FOUNDATION DAY OF AIBSNLEA                                                                  

My dear comrades of  BSNL Maharashtra,  from last near about two years we all have witnessed the working of Circle Office in dealing with the HR issues of executives. All their activities were seems to be under some unknown intimidation. The main reason is their leadership having nature of bully, hector type administration. The cases represented by AIBSNLEA Maharashtra Circle, faced always red tapism and the other Association demands were being processed without following norms with red carpet. The opposition was always being put down by the Staff administrator. The entire situation we have explained  to CGMT Maharashtra in our letter dated 30/4/15 and in our personnel meeting at Pune.


ITPC ISSUE   In the month of September 14 willingness were called by Corporate Office for ITPC Pune from the Executives, in respond to this letter many executives were submitted their willingness. As mentioned in the said letter CGM ITPC conducted telephonic interviews and short-listed the names and forwarded to Corporate Office. In turn Corporate Office, send the list to circle office Mumbai. 3 reminders were send for their comments, then Corporate office issued the orders as there was no response from CO Mumbai. In the said list there is a mix population of all the three Association members. All Officers whose orders were issued are not at all in transfer zone of longest stay. In this list there are 2 circle office bearers of AIBSNLEA at circle level, but I think there is no, Circle level office bearers, from other Association. This point triggered.  The stirrer started to play the game, at the cost of feelings of common members including their membership. The then CGM Maharashtra and Staff HR head of CO Mumbai inclined with views and start acting accordingly. After lapse of 3/4 months circle office call for willingness at their own, scrutinized and short listed 5 names. Mean while New CGMT joins Maharashtra Circle and he was informed the situation in biased way. Members are expressing that Non inclusion of stay count of executives working in circle office prior to issuance of intra Circle transfers for tenure is a tactics applied by the person sitting in the chair of SDE staff B with the help of staff section head with motto to bar some particulars officer to opt to ITPC. Recently Corporate Office wrote to CGMT Maharashtra for immediate relieving of Executives to ITPC as ordered. Circle Office has taken the different stand and in this the spirit of issuance of order to save BSNL money in lacks per month is getting defeated. Being at the helm of affairs every executive in Maharashtra is expecting justice from our kind CGMT Maharashtra


Implementation of order issued on 27/4 /15 It was expected the immediate implementation of orders for some executives about whom we have raised our voice in respect of the orders issued on 27/4/15. We asked to our Nashik comrades, about the relieving of the executive from Nashik then it was replied that yes the said executive is relieved today the 30/4/15. I asked how this has happened in such a supersonic way,  the reply is, it is learnt that  GM (A&HR) requested for immediate relieving for that executive, and it was sensed that there is a break out of discussion about the connection in between INDIRANAGAR and RANENAGAR  at NASHIK, influenced the early implementation. Here we demand a detailed investigation from competent authority that by denying a request, of a lady officer at Nashik, for change of station to CO Mumbai on the ground NO Vacancy at CO,  then how request of Nashik executive being considered at priority. Same is the case of Sholapur.


Relieving of executives from RAIGAD SSA The CO Mumbai shows the excess 14 executives at Raigad hence the relievers are not arranged for relieving Shri Kulkarni to Pune and Shri V M Shinde even after lapse of near about 8 months and odd. The promptness shown by the head of staff section in case of relieving of Nashik executive within a couple of days, then  why it is not extended to these poor executives at Raigad is the question asked by the members at Raigad to me. What should I answer? Shall I answer that be at the MERCY of circle staff head. At Raigad the executives coming from Mumbai and Kalyan especially want to be in 30% HRA hence with the help of Local DGM Shri Rao managed to get posted at PANVEL SSA HEAD QUARTER, and in the field the paucity of executives is being observed . Rationalization of staff has to be carried out. Comrades we will take all these issues with CGMT Maharashtra and find the truth and with the kindness of CGMT Maharashtra justice will be bestowed to all aggrieved.

30.04.2015:  CS writes to CGM regarding discrepancies in the transfer order.  < click copy >

29.04.2015:  DISCREPANCIES IN THE  TRANSFER ORDER ISSUED BY CIRCLE: Circle Office issued the 29 request transfer orders in JTO and SDE cadre in a first phase. This transfer orders also covers the request of executives who has completed 58 years of age. If we go through the orders thoroughly we found the discrepancies and biased approach in issuing the orders. Here we quote one example of formation of chain as below.


Kalyan (SARODE) ---- Jalgaon (Mahajan) -----Nashik (Akhade) -----instead of Kalyan posted to circle office


Kalyan kept vacant and at Kalyan shortage of executives. Why this is arranged is everybody knows. Is this a really commendable work? as the person coming from Nashik is an office bearer of other executive Association and the person sitting in chair of SDE staff B is an office bearer of that organization. The inclusion of chain business started from last two to three years. To make a phone call, from staff section, asking immediate option, non proper maintenance of waiting list records, are the tactics used  to make the executives panic. Another case for example, Mrs. Rairikar SDE Nashik was transferred to Jalagaon on point to point basis even though she is not in longest stay zone of consideration.  She requested for Ahemadnagar as change of SSA, because her son is studying in 12th std under HSC Board PUNE and Nagar is under HSC board Pune. But she was told that there is no vacancy at Nagar  then under compulsion she has given willingness to Dhule Immediately the so called LOCK put by Staff section for consideration incoming request to Nagar opened and in this order Shri Varpe  from Circle office posted to Nagar.


At circle office already the staff loading is 165% then there was no need to post more JTOs and SDEs , for example Shri Akhade and Shri Pawar denying the request seniority of Mrs Deshpande V S from Pune as she is not member of the other executive Association.


Here we appeal the administration, and request that please keep keen watch on such tactics of favoring to the particular group of executives belonging to certain executive association.

25.04.2015: Meeting with Shri G K UPADHYAY CGMT Maharashtra at PUNE

Circle Secretary along with, Com. C M Saste, Organizing Secretary (W), Com A A Kulkarni ACS MH Circle, Com. Vallabh Pophale, OS MH Circle, Com.

At the outset CGMT was welcomed by offering a beautiful bouquet. Relieving of executives for ITPC, relieving of executives to tenure stations, Relieving of Raigad and Ratnagiri Executives, whose orders were issued more than six months back, MMRDA issue, discrepancies in calculating the stay of executives, non following provisions of the clause  10 d of transfer policy, delay in settling the cases, Forwarding of rule 8 transfers of JTOs and VRS case of Com. Lamboodari,  SDE (L/A), DE (L/A) of Nagpur and regular refusal cases and DGM (L/A) left cases,  request to post as is where is basis, etc., especially raised by AIBSNLEA, No  Synchronization amongst the staff section, SMS by GM (A & HR ) to Circle Secretary,  are the main issues discussed with him, and we conveyed the views expressed by our members about the working style and the attitude experienced by our members while interacting with staff section especially related to transfer and posting of JTO/SDEs. We request CGM Maharashtra Circle to intervene and address these issues on top priority as these factors may deface, sully the glory of Circle office. We urged upon the need to break the feudalism arisen due to permanency in particular section from last 3-4 years. Being well civilized and well bread we cannot say the persons or about  their attitude, working in this section with bad, dirty epithet as used by others in their mouth organ repeatedly and spoiling the atmosphere. Meeting was concluded with assurance from CGMT to look into the points raised by this Association.

23.04.2015:  We appreciate the stand taken by the C A  section at corporate level regarding not to carry out any new work for DOT unless the 100% recovery of pending dues from the administrative ministry is received to BSNL. In the letter addressed to all Chief General Managers the C A section has clearly stressed upon the NO New Work for DOT prior to full recovery of pending amount.


The letter is issued by Shri PUNDE  G M (C A). HE is basically from Pune and we have experienced his style of working at Pune. A very straightforward,  soft  spoken,  administrative strict,  noble gentleman and caring nature personality. We all salute him for the courage shown by him to take the correct and firm step for welfare of BSNL. <<< LETTER >>>

23.04.2015:  Majestic, sterling performance by two lacks and odd BSNL employees

On 21st and 22nd April 2015 the whole nation had witnessed the dazzling participation in the two day metaphorical strike of BSNL employees for the noble cause “SAVE BSNL SAVE NATION”. The outburst is nothing but the spontaneous overflow of the bottle up feelings of employees against the wrong policies adopted by the administrative ministries, and the no support from the government to assist this fully owned government company for getting recouped for the losses incurred to maintain the social face of the government.


At the time of BIRTH of BSNL that is on 1/10/2000  it was assured by the government of India to all citizens of India that this will be a fully owned government company and to maintain its financial viability is the prime responsibility of the government.


If we see the last fifteen years the travel graph and path of financial stability of BSNL the picture is definitely gloomy, bleak. The travel of company is from ten thousand profits to ten thousand losses. This is the outcome of the wrong policies of the administrative ministry, obsequious administrative system, and lack in planning, political intrusion that made BSNL weak.


Revival of BSNL is the main motto behind this allegorical strike. The response to this call by the grass root members is really fantastic. It will be the booster dose to the trade unionist. Now the responsibility is more, on Leaders of delivering the results.


On behalf of AIBSNLEA Maharashtra Circle and on my personnel behalf I congratulate  and salute to all BSNL EMPLOYEES for showing  faith on BSNL, Leaders, your strength, unity, solidarity, affection and concern about nation growth. Similarly I express my sincere thanks to all CS/ DS/DP/FS/CWC/CHQ AND CIRCLE /DISTRICT OFFICE BEARERS OF ALL ASSOCIATIONS, UNIONS OF BSNL and electronic and print media, press NGOS other CPSUs association/unions for their active support to make this agitation radiant.

Comrade, we will have to initiate the mobilization and awareness against such attitude by a person who is a chief executive of an executive Association in BSNL. If we see in the past it seems the habit to criticize personally, by name, with dirty, unparlimentary adjectives for cheap publicity, especially for account personnel.


On 31st December publication of the mouth organ of this said Association it is published that the then CGM Maharashtra Circle is Bengali baba, black magician and so on. This was in respect of reliving of officers to ITPC and out of SSA transfer and especially our the then C S Shri. V P Kulkarni, and Sh B D Gaikar OS Mh Circle. It was published that Shri B D Gaikar was in long stay list, but comrade if you refer the longest stay particular list of executives, 100 names were published by circle office on 21/3/2014 Shri Gaikar Name was not appearing, means he was not in the station/SSA seniority list. It proves that the news published was incorrect and false, similarly, letter issued by corporate office about willingness for ITPC there was no mention for non inclusion of names who were in SSA long seniority list, that means here also misleading information is published, that is why there is footnote  about matter published in this……..in part or full…..cannot be used as a proof. It seems to be the habit.


Comrades, not to worry, we will bring down him a peg or two. We will take up this issue with administration at Circle level and through our GS at CHQ level.

16.04.2015:  Contragulations !!! Shri V N Dhage, DGM (ERP) is posted as GM (TR) (LA) Maharashtra Circle Office.  CS along with the entire members of AIBSNLEA MH Circle congratulates him for the new assignment as G.M. and extends full support.  << click here for copy of order >>>

10.04.2015:  Stay particular list in r/o JTO/AD/SDEs working in CO, Mumbai --- Displayed !!!!!!

In JTOs  list if we go through, we find that out of 74 JTOs, 80 % are BSNL recruitee and their average age is round about thirty. Quite young and energetic team is working in circle office as most of the IT related work in marketing , ERP, mobile related works is being handled by these young stalwarts of BSNL, and all are having stay of less than ten years with few 2 or 3  exceptions and 20% are DOT recrutiee but came from  Raigad, Base feeder station of circle office that is CTO  and Kalyan.


In list of SDE/AD, if we go through the exact reverse as in case of JTOs situation is being observed that 80%  of 72 SDEs/AD are from Kalyan, CTO ,or Raigad SSA and are DOT recrutiee. As per Transfer policy Clause10 , (d )


For counting Station/SSA tenure, the period of service rendered in the previous cadre (s)/grade (s) would be counted. For Inter circle transfer, stay will be counted from the date of regular promotion/recruitment into the grade of JTO/JAO and others equivalent to the first level of Executive Hierarchy.   Inter circle tenure based transfer in respect of Executives will continue to be restricted for SDE/ Other equivalent levels and above.   However, the number of officers transferred out of Circle at any time would not generally exceed 10% of the sanctioned strength in the Circle for officers upto STS level. Transfer/Posting history of  DOT employment shall be taken into account for the ex-DOT absorbed employees in BSNL.  Service period of 2 years or more will only be recognized while computing post/station/SSA/Circle tenure. For Territorial Circle Executives, while computing Station/SSA/Circle tenure, any stay in non-territorial Circle within the territorial jurisdiction of the Circle shall also be counted Similarly, for non-territorial Circle executives, stay of territorial circle shall be counted while computing Station/SSA/Circle tenure


If we go through the list it is observed that some executives were working in CTO Mumbai at CTO compound and at fountain telecom building under G M telegraph o/o CGMT MH Circle as well as prior to the shifting of Raigad SSA office from MOTA MARKET, to wireless compound then to Panvel since all offices were situated at MUMBAI station only  since their appointment and their stay has to be counted as per clause of above transfer policy 10 (d).


All are requested to go through the list and feedback to CS AIBSNLEA to point out the discrepancies if any.  << CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS >>

The pre-Internet era's faster means of money transfer to loved ones in far-flung villages through the traditional 'Money Order Service' of India Post will be wired to history, losing the race to instant money order service or iMO and Mobile Money Transfer that runs on smart web applications.

An aging 135-year old MO Service that first started fund remittance at the doorstep in 1880 could not weather the competition as iMO and Mobile Money Transfer became affordable and the most easy way of transferring money in case of emergency. The user of the iMO service can transfer an amount ranging from Rs 1,000 to Rs 50,000 in one transaction unlike a limit of Rs 5,000 in traditional MO Service.

"A notification in this regard will be issued soon by the Department of Post, but it has been decided that traditional Money Order Service will be discontinued and iMO and other faster services like mobile money transfer will remain in service. Discontinuation of traditional Money Order Services will come into effect from the date of notification," said a Department of Post official.

The department, which provides services with 1,55,333 post offices across the country, had discontinued the 160-year-old telegram service in 2013.

A Money Order carrying a limited words message on the coupon delivered to a house through 1,30,000 Branch Post Offices in rural areas always brought cheers in the receiver's family and postmen were generally treated with sweets and even gifted a token sum.

An official said the government decision came after the IT Modernisation Project that was launched in 2012 to provide Internet connectivity to all post offices yielded desired results.

According to a Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation report, from 2000-01 to 2012-13, the number of Money Orders had declined from 10.96 crore to about seven crore, while the amount issued under Money Orders had increased from Rs 5,851.8 crore to Rs 10,484 crore indicating that huge sums using iMO were being remitted.

3.   Recruitment to the post of JE(C/E) was carried out through advt. in news papers, etc. in which it was mentioned that they are eligible and also there is scope for promotion to AE (C/E), Also AE (C/E) would have lot of scope for promotion to further higher posts.

4.   DOP & T guidelines for training / amendment / relaxation of RR vide “OM No AB. 14017 / 48 / 2010 – Estt (RR)” dated 31st December 2010 which clearly says that  DOP & T “OM No AB. 14017 / 12 / 87 – Estt (RR) dated 18th March 1988 order shall be followed for “ Retention of existing eligibility service” for the feeder cadre. However it has not been followed.

Subsequently, amendment of recruitment rules was issued in 1994, wherein only Engg. Degree holders were eligible for the promotion from AE(C/E) to EE(C/E) and Diploma holders were barred for the same.

However, recruitment for the post of JE(C/E) was carried out subsequently with Diploma in Engg. only as the basic qualification, till the year Aug’2000 (just before the formation of BSNL).

7.   Subsequent promotions from AE(C/E) to EE(C/E) were done wherein Diploma holders were also considered for the promotion.

8.   BSNL was formed on 1st Oct 2000, Recruitment rules for JE(C/E) were amended in Dec 2001 and that of AE(C/E) in Feb 2002. As per this recruitment rule JE(C/E) was re-designated as JTO(C/E) and AE(C/E) as SDE(C/E). The basic qualification for the post of JTO(C/E) was now made as Degree in Engg.

9.   Promotion from SDE(C/E) to EE(C/E) was done wherein Diploma holders were also considered for the promotion, till the year Aug’2012 vide order no. 2-53/2011-Electrical  dtd. 14.08.12.

10. There was again an amendment of recruitment rules and BSNL MS RR was introduced on 14th July              2009 vide order no. 400-106/2007-Pers I.

11. Supporting facts :

1)   Existing SDE’s in other disciplines of BSNL continue to get promotions as DE’s (equivalent of EE(C/E)) irrespective of their qualification. This was due to the clause included in the recruitment rules 2009. However, such clause is absent in case of Civil & Electrical wings. (Ref. amendment vide order no. 400-106/2007-Pers.I  Dtd. 12th Oct. 2010).

          <<<<<<                  WHAT IS CYBER DEFAMATION            >>>>>




The invention of the internet the life has got a pace.. The internet provides the media to interact with the people worldwide. The world become very close .A new dimension came into existence through WEB and Social Networking, on line trade job uniting etc.


Cyberspace is a technical term. when two or more networking devices are networked togethe and on line ,web information are being communicated then it is called cyber spacer. The term has a very wide meaning also includes computers, computer networks, the internet, data, software etc.. Cyber law is the law that governs the crimes committed within the cyberspace. Cyber Defamation is also a cyber crime.


The term defamation is used to define the injury that is caused to the reputation of a person in the eyes of a third person. The injury can be done by words oral or written, or by signs or by visible representations. The intention of the person making the defamatory statement must be to lower the reputation of the person against whom the statement has been made in the eyes of the general public.


Cyber defamation is publishing of defamatory material against another person with the help of computers or internet. If someone publishes some defamatory statement about some other person on a website or send emails containing defamatory material to other persons with the intention to defame the other person about whom the statement has been made would amount to cyber defamation. The harm caused to a person by publishing a defamatory statement about him on a website

cyber defamation affects the welfare of the community as a whole and not merely of the individual victim.



The Indian Penal Code, 1860 contains provisions to deal with the menace of cyber defamation.

1. Section 499 of IPC:

  • Section 499 of IPC says that whoever, by words either spoken or intended to be read, or by signs or by visible representations, makes or publishes any imputation concerning any person intending to harm, or knowing or having reason to believe that such imputation will harm, the reputation of such person, is said, except in the cases hereinafter excepted, to defame that person.


  • The offence of defamation is punishable under Section 500 of IPC with a simple imprisonment up to 2 years or fine or both.

  • The law of defamation under Section 499 got extended to "Speech" and "Documents" in electronic form with the enactment of the Information Technology Act, 2000.


2. Section 469 of IPC:Section 469 of IPC says that whoever commits forgery, intending that the document or electronic record forged shall harm the reputation of any party, or knowing that it is likely to be used for that purpose shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine.The phrase “intending that the document forged” under Section 469 was replaced by the phrase “intending that the document or electronic record forged” vide the Information and Technology Act, 2000.


3. Section 503 of IPC :Section 503 of IPC defines the offense of criminal intimidation by use of use of emails and other electronic means of communication for threatening or intimidating any person or his property or reputation. Section 503 says that whoever, threatens another with any injury to his person, reputation or property, or to the person or reputation of any one in whom that person is interested, with intent to cause alarm to that person, or to cause that person to do any act which he is not legally bound to do, or to omit to do any act which that person is legally entitled to do, as the means of avoiding the execution of such threats, commits criminal intimidation.

                              INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ACT, 2000

The Section 66A of the Information Act, 2000 does not specifically deal with the offence of cyber defamation but it makes punishable the act of sending grossly offensive material for causing insult, injury or criminal intimidation.

Section 66A of the Information Act, 2000 

Section 66A of the IT Act says that any person who sends, by means of a computer resource or a communication device:-

  • any information that is grossly offensive or has menacing character; or
  • any content information which he knows to be false, but for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience, danger, obstruction, insult, injury, criminal intimidation, enmity, hatred, or ill will, persistently makes by making use of such computer resource or a communication device,                                            

  • any electronic mail or electronic mail message for the purpose of causing annoyance or inconvenience or to deceive or to mislead the addressee or recipient about the origin of such messages shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and with fine.



 State of Tamil Nadu v. Suhas Katti related to posting of obscene, defamatory and annoying message about a divorcee woman in the yahoo message group. E-Mails were also forwarded to the victim for information by the accused through a false e-mail account opened by him in the name of the victim. The posting of the message resulted in annoying phone calls to the lady in the belief that she was soliciting. Based on a complaint made by the victim in February    2004, the Police traced the accused to Mumbai and arrested him within the next few days. Relying on the expert witnesses and other evidence produced before it, including the witnesses of the Cyber Cafe owners, the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate held the accused guilty of offences under section 469, 509 IPC and 67 of IT Act, 2000 and the accused is convicted and is sentenced for the offence to undergo RI for 2 years under 469 IPC and to pay fine of Rs.500/-and for the offence u/s 509 IPC sentenced to undergo 1 year Simple imprisonment and to pay fine of Rs.500/- and for the offence u/s 67 of IT Act 2000 to undergo RI for 2 years and to pay fine of Rs.4000/- All sentences to run concurrently.” The conviction of the accused was achieved successfully within a relatively quick time of 7 months from the filing of the FIR.

Pension for the Absorbed BSNL employees and the 60:40 issue-


Present  Position:- When Erstwhile DoT employees took absorption in BSNL, it was assured by the Government by introducing Rule 37A in CCS Pension Rule 1972, that payment of pension is the responsibility of Government and shall be paid by the Government, BSNL’s responsibility will be only to pay the required pension contribution as per rules. (section 21 & 22 of Rule 37A). This was further clarified by the then Secretary DoT Sri Nripendra Kumar Misra  to Sri A K Sinha CMD BSNL on 15-03-2005, where commitment of DoT as per rule 37A has been reiterated.

Subsequently on January 5, 2009 Sri Sidhhartha Behura the then Secretary (T) vide memo no 40-12(2007) Pen (T), notified that the responsibility of the Government for payment of pension to BSNL absorbed employees shall not exceed 60% of the receipt to the Government on a) Dividend from BSNL, b) License fee from BSNL and c) Corporate Tax/Excise Duty/Service tax paid by BSNL. The balance amount if any will be borne by BSNL.

It was however also mentioned in the memo that the provision of 60% is only for “funding purpose”, and it does not in any way distract from the fact that ultimate liability of paying pension lies with the Government of India.

But on 11-07-2014 vide 40-13/2013-Pen(T), while replying a query related to 78.2% IDA fixation for pensioners DoT has informed the DoE that the provision of 60% is a cabinet decision. It was also mentioned that from the year 2011-12 onwards the pension paid by DoT is much higher than the 60% figure.

Being curious on how the cabinet approval was taken by the DoT on the 60% liability issue, Sri Amit Kumar Gupta, our AGS, filed an RTI application with DoT. The reply to the query reveals that while processing the implementation of 68.8% IDA fixation for pre 2007 pensioners, the DoT has mentioned this provision in the cabinet memo and got the approval of the Cabinet on 15-01-2011


Now as per the cabinet approval Government’s responsibility for payment of pension to absorbed BSNL employees is limited to 60% only

Minutes of 70th  Quality  Performance Meet at Jabalpur   Report  released.    << click for copy >>





State-tune telecom company BSNL is investing an over Rs 11,000 crore to improve its all-round services including strengthening network, modernizing telephone exchanges and installing mobile towers in the naxal-dominated areas, Parliament was informed on Wednesday. "BSNL and MTNL   are taking several steps to enhance revenues through investments to strengthen its network and focus on consumer care and service delivery to improve quality of service," Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad informed the Lok Sabha in a written reply. Both companies have drastically lost their subscriber base mainly due to inadequate investment that led to network coverage issues, inability to compete with private sector telecom firms with regard to marketing and customer satisfaction, he said. As per details shared by the minister, BSNL is augmenting its mobile network by installing additional 14,421 2G mobile sites and 10,605 3G sites with an estimated investment of Rs 4,804 crore. The state-run firm is modernizing all telephone exchanges with an investment of about Rs 600 crore for improving landline services. It is also migrating old technology system in exchanges in an agreement with C-DoT at an estimated cost of Rs 350 crore. The government has assigned work to BSNL to install 2,199 mobile towers in naxal-affected areas at an investment of Rs 3,567.58 crore and provide mobile connectivity to uncovered villages in Arunachal Pradesh and two districts of Assam with an investment of Rs 1,975.58 crore. On MTNL, Prasad said MTNL is also adding 1,080 3G mobile sites each in Delhi and Mumbai along with 800 2G sites in Delhi and 566 2G sites in Mumbai. The minister also mentioned that MTNL is modernizing its telephone exchange in same manner as BSNL. He, however, did not disclose the investment that MTNL is making in various projects. "MTNL has been unable to invest in expansion and modernization of network due to financial crisis. BSNL has been unable to invest in expansion of its network over the period 2009-13," Prasad added.

I don’t completely discount the merger but as of now my main focus is to revising the health of these two companies. I can tell you on your channel, you have been following this sector very closely, the way these two public sector undertakings have been ill-treated in the last seven years is something to be seen to be believed. Both of these companies were in profit by the year 2005-2006, thousands and thousands of crore. What happened in the subsequent years that hey have come under such a critical state? Something which I can openly tell you today that every attempt was made that they are not allowed to expand.

I haven’t said I am considering merger. I only said it is an option. As of now my firm focus is to first improve their health, make them more productive – MTNL and BSNL both. I am very happy in the 7th phase BSNL is going to make an investment of Rs 4000 crore by itself. Let me first restore their health. 



Telecom companies BSNL, MTNL   and Videocon are considering reducing call rates after telecom regulator TRAI cut down interconnection charges. "Removal of fixed termination charges will help BSNL serve its customer better. We will come up with better offers in next financial year. Customers will have more affordable services," BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Shrivastav told PTI.
