On dated 11.12.2017, the case was hear in the Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi wherein DoT Advocate pleaded that already a case regarding E2 - E3 is being heard by a double bench and since both the case are related to scales revision, these should be clubbed.

Both are altogether different cases and should be heard separately.


Hon'ble PB CAT agreed on the pleading of our advocate. Hon'ble PB CAT also mentioned that  even a single bench can heard this case. DoT Advocate then asked some more time for arguments. Considering the request of Hon'ble PB CAT posted the case for further hearing on 18.12.2017.

22.11.2017 Meeting with Addl. Secretary (Telecom), DoT:

GS and President along with the GS and President of AIRBSNLEWA met Addl. Secretary (T), DoT and discussed regarding:

A Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL: We requested for implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL as per the BSNL Board’s decision which is already sent to DoT for approval and issuance of Presidential Directives. AST mentioned that the BSNL’s proposal on 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL is being processed. During the discussions, the AST was responsive.


B Payment of Pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale: We requested to consider payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale. AST mentioned that the BSNL’s proposal in this regard was considered and decided that DoT can not recommend payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale to DoE in view of the fact the pension contribution paid by BSNL for their employees is on different substantive grade pay scales and thereafter the employee is being retired in higher scale. So initially the pension contribution was paid in lesser amount to DoT DoT as per the lower scale. We further pleaded that the 6th CPC in the year 2006 had recommended pension contribution to be taken on actual basic pay of the employee. In view of that, it should be considered on actual basic but AST was firm on his decision.


C Revision of the Pension of BSNL Pensioners: We requested AST to take an early action for revision of the pension of the BSNL pensioners who are drawing Govt. Pension under Rule 37A. We explained that Sr. DDG (Estt), DoT is mentioning that the revision of pension of BSNL pensioners will be considered after the pay revision of BSNL serving employees on implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations otherwise, there will be a disparity in the pension of the BSNL pensioners who will retire later on. AST after giving patient hearing told that we will look into the mater for an early action in this regard. GS, AIRBSNLEWA gave a letter to AST in this regard which he marked immediately to the concerned section for taking an early action.


D Additional increment case on post based proposition under EPP: AST categorically mentioned that the matter is sub-judice so he can not make any comment on this issue.


E Restructuring of AD (OL) cadre in BSNL: We requested to give clearance to BSNL on restructuring of AD (OL) cadre. AST assured to look into


22.11.2017 Meeting with PGM(Pers) , BSNL CO on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy

GS, President, AGS (HQ), AGS (FIN ) and AGS (DR) met with PGM (Pers.) and discussed about  proposed Draft CPSU cadre hierarchy. PGM (Pers.) initiated the discussion by reiterating the MC direction that CPSU proposal is being discussed with associations to make policy more employee and organisation centric. We told that response submitted by AIBSNLEA contains para wise suggestions, by considering them Policy can be made beneficial for both employee and organisation.

We reiterated our stand that all pending CPCs should be completed and promotion orders should be issued before implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy and priority should be given to conduct CPCs first to fill up all the vacant post of Group- 'A' and Group-' B'. Pers. cell need to take legal opinion wherever required, to break the stalemate in promotions in various cadres as per DOP&T guidelines on SC/ST rosters implementation.


PGM (Pers.) assured to work out some way to complete the CPCs processes and issue promotion orders and simultaneously finalise the CPSU Hierarchy.


We strongly opposed the MT recruitment provision at STS level in the CPSU cadre hierarchy. PGM (Pers.) told that management trainee is need of the organisation. We mentioned that  AIBSNLEA will never accept MT at STS level. We categorically told that MT recruitment at STS level will block the career prospects of all the existing executives  at JTO / JAO and SDE / AO level and they will retire at AGM level only. If management feels that BSNL need market talent then recruit MT in Sales, Marketing, HR and  Legal etc. at JTO/JAO level only. Engineering and Finance vertical are already having executives at JTO / JAO equivalent to Management Trainee. Along with this, If management feels that there is requirement at policy making level, BSNL may recruit higher management professionals at GM level with suitable experience and probation.


We also opposed ignorance of length of service and seniority in proposed draft and increase of resend period for AGM grade from 7 years to 12 years. Residency period from SDE to AGM and equivalent cadre should be maximum 7 years only.


We suggested the benchmarks should be on basis of Khan Committee report and numeric based to avoid huge dropping.


We also suggested that implemention of date of CPSU Policy should be from the date of last CPC held in that cadre instead of 01.01.2017, otherwise it will not be beneficial to the  executives in the Cadre (s) having more than 20 years of service.


The executives already in E5 scales should be given the designation of Jt. DGM immediately as per Khan Committee report.


We suggested that before going to any final decision all cadre controlling authorities like Civil , Electrical , Arch, Finance, TF and CSS etc. should be consulted and taken care of their views / suggestions also.


We further suggested that Pers. cell may convene a joint meeting of all executive associations for more deliberation and making a consensus on CPSU policy which is more employee and organisation centric.

PGM (Pers) mentioned that CPCs in these cadres can be conducted only after the directions are received from Hon'ble Apex Court on pending SLPs. He further informed that Supreme Court has agreed that the matter will be considered by five-judge bench. After the directions of Hon’ble Court CPC will be conducted.


15.11.2017 Meeting with PGM (Pers.) to discuss the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal:

GS, President, AGS (HQ), AGS (Fin), and AGS (DR) had meeting with PGM (Pers.) on CPSU cadre hierarchy. The meeting was scheduled as per direction of the Management Committee of BSNL Board. GM (SR), Jt. GM (Pers) and DGM (Pers-II) were also present in the meeting.  AIBSNLEA submitted its detailed Para wise response to the draft policy approved by BSNL Management committee.


PGM (Pers) had apprised that purpose of the MC‘s direction to discuss with associations to make policy more employee and organization centric. He requested that AIBSNLEA should support the policy to break the stalemate in the promotions of executives in BSNL.


AIBSNLEA made it clear that we are never against the CPSU hierarchy rather we have been demanding it to implement in the true sense and as per Khan Committee recommendations.  We further clarified that our suggestions are to safe guard the interest of the entire executives and it will give value additions to it. In view of this Pers. Cell should carefully go through our views / suggestions with open mind without any prejudice. Then point by point discussion was held. 


While discussion, we strongly  opposed the MT recruitment, ignorance of  the weightage to seniority, reduction of sanctioned strength, increase in eligibility condition from of 7 to 12 years for the promotion of SDE/AO to DE /AGM/CAO, Time bound promotion in SG-JAG grade should be in E7 instead of E6 etc.


PGM (Pers) appreciated our concern in this regard and impress upon to consider MT Recruitment to full-fill the management requirement immediately but we categorically told that AIBSNLEA is firm on its stand and will not accept MT Recruitment at STS level which will block the career progression of executives. Today the meeting started at 15.00 hrs as per the schedule and continued till 18.00 hrs thereafter, PGM (Pers.) mentioned that he will study the submissions made by AIBSNLEA point by point and thereafter he will discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA again on 22nd and 23rd Nov, 2017.

15.11.2017 CS writes to CGM for intervention regarding recent transfer orders in accounts

Conceited and cocky approach of head of FC section CO Mumbai towards specially AIBSNLEA members in accounts and finance wing in recent transfer and posting. The transfer order of  accounts executives issued by FC section with excessive extravagant publicity  in a very cursorily manner that created a panic and the monstrous act of head FC section which is inconceivable created a clamour in accounts field units. This is the violation of BSNL transfer policy.  AIBSNLEA has pointed out their blunder then to veneer their bloomer FC issued clarification which itself a violation of BSNL transfer policy. We are also receiving so many complaints about not following the prescribed procedure to comply the directives of Hon’ble Supreme courts by adopting unconstitutional shortcuts for compliance its ATR report particularly in constitutional validations in service matters related in HR section especially of Finance wing. CS requested to CGMT and GM (F) to post regular and experienced DGM as FC head with clear VC to avoid such type of irregularities.

CS writes to GM (F) regarding recent transfer orders

 It is observed while going through the list some discrepancies and in some cases transfer policy is violated and needs to be addressed and corrected as agreed open end for correction and improvement. We really appreciate the stance. We also expect that the role in correction the errors will be definitely proactive rather than reactive or of bystander.

13.11.2017 BSNL Executive promotion Policy Amendment & Recruitment Rules, 2017

Pros and Cons

The pros and cons on implementation of the Draft Rectt./Promotion Rule,  proposing Time bound functional promotion upto AGM grade for all cadres / streams are as under:-.

1.2: The modified policy shall be implemented w.e.f. 01.01.2017:

Pros: The modified policy implementing w.e.f. 01.01.2017 will provide time bound functional promotion upto AGM level which will benefit the newly recruited executives, recruited after 2010.

Cons: The modified policy implementing w.e.f. 01.01.2017 will not give benefit to the senior executives in the cadre having more than 20 years of service which will cause frustration and discontentment among them. For example, one JTO recruited in the year 1995 and completed 21 years of service is still waiting his first functional promotion as a SDE and one JTO recruited in the year 2011 completed 5 years of service will get SDE promotion together.  No service weightage to the senior executive is ensured.    


1.3: On approval of the policy, all existing RR in the grade of SDE /equivalent will be treated as scrapped and MSRR 2009 will be modified to the extent that promotion of AGM/DE Grade in all the schedule-IA, IB, IC & ID shall be treated to be deleted. Remaining portion of MSRR shall be continued to be followed as per the existing provision. MT recruitment will continue as per the existing provision of Recruitment Rule of MT.

Pros: MT recruitment at STS level as per the existing provisions of recruitment rule of MT, It may help in filling up Top level SAG/HAG level post on fast track method through MTs of outside and inside quote.  Few of Group B level executives will also get a chance to become MT through this process.                                                

Cons: MT recruitment at STS level will block the career progression of Group B level executives as we have experienced in DOT setup through JTS OF ITS Grup A recruitment rules 1991. Where in one DR JTO of DOT used to retire as Adhoc DE after completing 37-38 years of service. The similar situation will develop in BSNL after the introduction of MT recruitment.                                  


1.4: Powers for relaxation/ modification/ amendment to these rules will vest with the Management committee of BSNL Board.

Pros: It will provide easy path to BSNL management to relax/modify/amendment to these rules with the approval of management committee of BSNL Board.

Cons: BSNL management, as its own or under the unforeseen pressures may any time relax/modify/amend these rules with the approval of BSNL MC which may be in the interest of executives or against. These rules are approved by the BSNL Board and cleared by DOT may not be allowed to BSNL management to make such provisions since the pension payment is being made by DOT.   


3.0: Authorized strength of the Service: The authorized strength of the executives in various cadre/stream shall be as per the provisional HR plan

Pros: As per Deloite recommendations the sanction posts of Group A and B level executives will be reduced the wage payment liability of BSNL through the proposed HR plan.                 

Cons: As per new HR plan based on Deloite recommendations the huge number of sanctioned posts of Group A and B will be reduced which will adversely affect the career progression of BSNL executives by way of stagnation due to non-availability of the posts. 


5.1: All the existing Executives up to AGM/DGM(Adhoc) shall continue to be considered  for financial up-gradation to the next higher scale upto E-6 scale on completion of 5 years of service from the date of placement in lower scale through conduction of CPC. The benchmarks considered for financial up-gradation shall be as per the prescribed provisions in the schedule. The new Benchmarks shall be applied to those executives whose financial up-gradations are due w.e.f. 01.01.2018.

Pros: The stringent benchmark will filtered the executives and the less number of executives will be promoted to the higher post to reduce to number.

Cons: The stringent benchmark will block the career prospect of majority executives thus the spirit of time bound promotion on functional basis to all executives will be defeated. Considering this, the benchmark proposed by Khan Committee was appropriate of functional promotions.


5.3 II: All the executives eligible for promotion for a vacancy year i.e. promotion under SCF, for which the result of the LDCE (other channel of promotion) has been issued and promotion order is pending, the promotion of executives of both the channel shall be considered deemed to have been promoted before 1.1.2017 and they shall be treated en-bloc senior to the executives promoted as per this Rule.

Pros: The promotion of executives of both the channel shall be considered deemed to have been promoted before 1.1.2017 and they shall be treated en-bloc senior to the executives promoted as per this Rule. It will depend upon the year to year vacancies.

Cons: The executives of LDCE quota appeared through a particular vacancy year will continue to claim their seniority along with the vacancies of SCF quota. It may invite litigations and derail the process.


12.0: The executive shall join the place of posting on promotion within 40 days of the issue of the order of promotion by BSNL CO. The period of 40 days may be extended in exceptional and deserving case, in the interest of service, where the Administrative requirement so demands with the approval of appointing authority. In case the Executives who are granted functional promotion but fails to join the promoted grade within the time or decline promotion, then Management reserves the right to forfeit his promotion and executive shall not be considered for functional promotion or financial up-gradation to higher scale for next one Year or next CPC whichever is later, from the date of deemed refusal (after 40 days) or from date of application of refusal.

Pros and Cons: If on promotion outside circle one is forced to refuse due to medical/ family issues, he will stagnate in his own pay scale as there is no financial upgradation. This type of situation should be relaxed and genuinely should be weighted.


16.0: New designations for Executives: In the Policy new Designation has been incorporated and shall hereafter be followed at all levels at H.Q./Circle/SSA etc.

Pros and Cons: Khan committee has no where suggested Sr. SDE as functional promotion and tightening the norms by deciding even one  "Average" as disqualification in promotion for JTO, SDE, Sr. SDE, DE cadres i.e. for the span of 20 years. We strongly submits that there is no need to alive the Sr. SDE cadre. By this inclusion the Executives will be derailed from their justified promotions and will be bound to remain in the same pay scale for 10 years, which is the violation of EPP. We strongly oppose such inclusion.

                                                                        CHQ UPDATES   Meeting with Dir(HR) BSNL Board.


Director (HR) hold a meeting with AIBSNLEA representatives on 08.11.2017 and discussed the agenda items as under:-

1.   Implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL and settlement of E-2 & E-3 standard pay scales to the JTO & SDE equivalent executives in BSNL: We requested to get settled both the cases from DOT at the earliest to avoid unrest among the employees. Dir (HR) informed that she along with GM(Estt.) has met PS to Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) Shri Niteshwar Kumar and has discuss the matter on E-2 & E-3 pay scale issue and he has assured to appraised the issue to the Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) for review the PO since the earlier PO has been issued with the approval of Hon'ble MOSC(I/C).

On the issue of 3rd PRC report the BSNL Board has approved for its implementation with 15% fitment benefit and the same proposal will shortly be sent to DOT she immediately directed GM (Estt.) for sending the BSNL Board approval on 3rd PRC implementation for approval to DOT immediately. Dir (HR) mentioned that approval on 3rd PRC from DOT fully depends on Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) & Secretary (T) support. Since, the middle level administration in DOT is not favorable.

On the issue of payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay of BSNL employees to DOT. Dir (HR) mentioned that matter is still pending in the establishment cell of DOT to reply DOE queries wherein internal finance of DOT has also asked many quires in this regard. It seems that DOT Administration is not favorable to recommend the case to DOE.

2.    Holding of CPCs to fill-up the vacant Group-B and Group-A level vacant posts: We expressed our serious concern against the non-filling of the Group-B and Group-A level about 17000 vacant posts on the pretext of pending court cases. PGM (Pers) informed that Three SLPs have been filed in the Hon'ble Supreme Court against the Judgement of Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh on SC/ST roster implementation in BSNL the case was heard in the Registrar Court on 27th Oct.2017 wherein the notices have been issued to all concerned and now the next hearing is expected in the middle of Nov. month. He explained that we have requested to the Hon'ble Supreme Court to give us the clear direction that whether the Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh Judgement has to be implemented of the DOP&T guidelines should be implemented on SC/ST roster in BSNL to fill-up about 17000 Group-B and Group-A level vacant posts in the interest of BSNL and its executives. He opined that on this hearing Hon'ble Supreme Court may give clear cut direction in this regard and on that basis the CPCs will be conducted immediately. Dir (HR) also informed that she along with PGM (Pers) has met BSNLs senior Advocate and discussed the matter for an early decision in this regard.

3.     Withdrawal of additional increment on promotion in the same pay scale after time bound promotion under EPP: Dir (HR) asked the status of the court cases in this regard from PGM(Pers) and GM(Estt.). We expressed our concern that on 6th Nov-2017 the case was heard in the Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi filed by AIBSNLEA in the month of July-2017 against DOT order dated 05.07.2017 wherein for the last three hearings DOT Counselor shout time to file the reply and finally DOT filed the reply in Oct-2017 thereafter immediately AIBSNLEA Advocate also filed the rejoinder which was heard on 6th Nov-2017 in which Ist  time BSNLs Advocate appeared and demanded the MA copy and requested for adjournment of the Court for next 3 weeks wherein the now case is posted for hearing on 28th Nov-2017. Dir (HR) express her anguish against towards BSNLs Advocate late appearance and further delaying the case. She directed CGM (Legal) and PGM (Pers) to deal the case on priority for an early decision so that the pension cases can be settled accordingly.

4.     Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy in BSNL: We expressed our resentment towards the attitude of PGM (Pers) for not discussing the draft proposal with AIBSNLEA 2nd majority Executive Association on CPSU cadre hierarchy before placing to the management committee of BSNL Board wherein many discrepancies are seen which will harm the assured carrier progression of BSNL Executives. The Khan Committee recommendation which were finalized after the signature of three Executive Associations i.e. AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA has been diluted/ deviated which is not acceptable. We also mentioned that AIBSNLEA have been demanding implementation of CPSU hierarchy in the line of Khan Committee report. Dir (HR) mentioned that Management Committee of BSNL Board has directed to discuss the draft proposal with all stake holders before its submission to the BSNL Board for approval and now you have opportunity to put forth your views in this regard. She directed PGM(Pers) to discuss with AIBSNLEA on point to point basis and to take out view for further submission to the management committee of BSNL Board. She also directed GM(SR) to be present in the meeting on 15th Nov.2017 at 15.00 Hrs in the Chamber of PGM(Pers) and thereafter she will personally discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA before its submission to Management Committee of BSNL Board.

CS writes to GM (F) regarding transfer and posting of Accounts executives at par with BSNL transfer policy        <<<< Click for Letter >>>>




The Cabinet, in September, had cleared spinning off the mobile tower assets of the telecom corporation into a separate company.

BSNL owns 65,000 of the estimated 4.42 lakh total mobile towers in the country, or 15 per cent share.

A committee has already been formed with representatives from 
Telecom Department and BSNL to look into the requirements and formalities for the separate tower company, Shrivastava told PTI.

"We are also hiring a consultant... who will drive us through formation of tower company," he said.

The consultant could be hired on nomination basis, meaning a firm that has already done work for the telecom 
PSU, he added.

The corporation hopes to hire the consultant in about a fortnight, if all goes well.

Shrivastava said the final proposal outlining the modalities for the new company along with recommendations from the consultant could be placed before the BSNL board as early as December.

As per the Cabinet approval, the new company will be fully owned by BSNL. An independent, dedicated tower business of BSNL with a focused approach is also expected to lead to more external tenancies and, thereby, higher revenue at a time when 5G is all set to take off in a big way.

There will also be another upside.

"Unless we have separate company, the revenue for tower business or infrastructure business forms part of adjusted gross revenue. That attracts licence fee and spectrum usage charge at this point of time...Separate tower company will not attract that levy," he added

07.11.2017 Meeting with PGM (Pers.), BSNL Corporate Office:

GS, President and AGS (HQ) met PGM (Pers.) and discussed regarding CPSU Cadre Hierarchy issue. PGM (Pers.) shared the draft proposal on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy as approved by BSNL Management Committee under the condition to discuss it with all the executive associations before submission to BSNL Board.<<<Click here for draft proposal on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy as approved by BSNL MC>>>>>

All the members are requested to give their views/suggestions to CHQ immediately for further discussion with BSNL Management.

Director (HR), BSNL Board has called AIBSNLEA for discussion on the matter tomorrow afternoon at 12.00 pm. Thereafter, PGM (Pers.) has fixed up the meeting with AIBSNLEA on 15.11.2017 to discuss the matter further.


07.11.2017                                                              CPSU Cadre Hirarchy in BSNL:


                          The Majority Association is now busy in sugar-coating the quinine pill on behalf of the Management.


Anyone who will read the posting in the website of SNEA dated 5-11-2017 will certainly wonder whether it is a message from a trade union or management. The write-up resembles very much with the appeals generally posted by GM (SR) to console agitated employees.


It is claimed in the website that the draft proposal posted in our website is no way connected to the proposal approved by MC and informed that the full proposal will be posted by them once they receive it from management. This means that they are waiting the detrimental cadre hierarchy order to be approved and issued before circulation. Cowards Act. If they have courage let them come out and say which point in the draft proposal uploaded by us is wrong and what is the right. For what this hush hush is all about ?


It is propagated that the "promotion will be without fresh CPC and without delay". What's the meaning of fresh CPC and no delay. Will the present system of evaluating APAR and VC will be dispensed with. At present VC is valid for 3 months and CPC conducted for the eligible candidates. Then how delay can be avoided and there will be no need of fresh CPC.


Shamelessly it is written that " Khan Committee recommendation is implemented as it is 5-5-5 years except for benchmarks which are slightly tightened by the management." Khan committee has nowhere suggested Sr. SDE as functional promotion and tightening the norms by deciding even one  "Average" as disqualification in promotion for JTO, SDE, Sr SDE, DE cadres i.e. for the span of 20 years is "slightly tighting " in the eyes of the majority Association. What a desperation to cover the misdeeds of the Management.


The committee headed by Mr Khan, Ex. ED (NB) deliberated the issue on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy at length where all the executive Association has given there opinion. After taking opinion of all, the report was signed by all Associations including SNEA. Now what is the necessity and compulsion on part of SNEA to deviate from the report that too secretly and without discussion in any forum. Why SNEA is overactive to convince the executives about the good (?) points in the new proposal. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy is for executives who are qualified enough to understand themselves what is good and what is bad for them. They why this extra initiative? When EPP was drafted there was no need of secrecy and education. All Executives welcomed the scheme because it was good for them. Therefore without wasting the energy on preaching let the majority Association come out with the total scheme as they categorically mention the draft proposal uploaded by us is far from reality.


We appeal to the Majority Association please stop such actions to damage the entire executives cadre for may be some fringe benefit for some people.


06.11.2017 Status of the Court Cases against the DoT order dated 5.7.2017 for withdrawal of additional increment by fixation in same scale on post based promotion under EPP.

The case filed by AIBSNLEA vide OA/100/2649/2017 in Hon'ble Principal Bench CAT New Delhi against the DOT order dated 05.07.2017 for withdrawal of additional increment by fixation in same scale on post based promotion under EPP came up for hearing on 06.11.2017 in the Principal Bench of Hon'ble CAT (Court No. 4). BSNL Advocate requested for supply of MA Copy and also requested for hearing date in the first week of December. AIBSNLEA advocate requested for immediate hearing.

CS writes to GM (F) CO Mumbai regarding recent notification on stay, station seniority, tenure stations, and transfers in Accounts and Finance wing by FC section CO Mumbai. Blind imitation  and perfunctory act to swagger and bewitched to exhibit the Even handedness of FC section towards accounts executives at par with other executives in BSNL.

 In Maharashtra Circle. Since last three to four years it was propagated that there is no transparency, pick and choose policy, high injustice with accounts executives and need to be corrected. Every one now and then starts comparing their pain of transfers with accounts.  A totally new face for HR and junior in rank and file took over the charge of HR of finance. She has a great experience in managing the accounting successfully in liaison with audit and with the motivated intention to bestow the justice through uniformity with engineering transfer policy steps are being taken with the approval of the in charge of Finance in r leave period of regular office in charge. It is a good step but taken in a very hasty manner. We have some issues and are to be addressed on priority prior to issue the orders.

                             Betrayal towards BSNL Executives on issue of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy :

The CPSU Cadre Hierarchy(CCH) is secretly planned by SNEA with Pers Cell of BSNL only for smooth implementation of DOT's order on E1&E2 scales in BSNL at the cost of the executives career.

The SNEA leadership while uploading the secretly planned CCH (They themselves admitted in same posting) never related the existing pay scales with the proposed Hierarchy. As in reality those are perfectly matching with the DOT's order E1 for JTO, E2 For SDE and that is the reason for which all this secrecy about.
Pl see how perfectly it is matched.
E1 - JTO/JAO (Dy Manager)
E2 - SDE/AO (Manager)
E3 - SrSDE/SrAO ( Sr Manager)
E4 - DE/CAO ( Asst GM).
E5 - DGM

Otherwise had the demand of SNEA E2 for JTO and E3 for SDE was genuine, they would have never agreed to such CCH proposal. Because in that situation the ideal proposal should have been:
E2 - JTO/JAO (Dy Manager)
E3 - SDE/AO (Manager)
E4 - SrSDE/SrAO ( Sr Manager)
E5 - DE/CAO ( Asst GM).
E6 - DGM
But SNEA is all along opposing the cascading demand on all scales and demand only E2 for JTO and E3 for SDE which means if the same demand is achieved without cascading then in the proposed CCH the pay structure will be:
E2 - JTO/JAO (Dy Manager)
E3 - SDE/AO (Manager)
E3 - SrSDE/SrAO ( Sr Manager)
E4 - DE/CAO ( Asst GM).
i.e. 10 years in E3 scale in spite of a functional promotion in between.

Conclusion : The executives of BSNL are put into a loose-loose situation with the proposed CCH. Either accept E1 for JTO and get next scale with each functional promotion or accept 10 years in E3 scale although functional promotion from Manager to Sr Manager

Other pertinent points like first track promotion, benefits for SC/ST are also missing in the proposal.

The issue of converting promotion to Sr SDE/Sr AO as functional promotion is of vital importance for the cadre. Earlier whenever this issue was deliberated in any forum, the decision was always against introduction of a functional grade between SDE/AO and DE/CAO. Now SNEA has given its consent for introduction of the functional grade Sr Manager. Will they kindly inform the executive fraternity when and in which forum they deliberated and decided such vital issue. If deliberated then why they kept it secret from the entire community of Executives of BSNL.

It is also interesting to note the attitude of AIGETOA leadership. As claimed by SNEA in their website, AIGETOA was also consulted while planning this secret CCH. If it is true how they gave consent to such system which is out and out detrimental to all the DRs of BSNL.

Finally on the point of secrecy. We have earlier experience on management formulating detrimental orders/schemes secretly,. This is the first time we are seeing the Majority Assn is also becoming a part of the secret mission for damaging the cadre which they represent.

Remember only conspiracies are required to be kept secret, good plannings need not.

03.11.2017 GS writes to Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL, regarding deviation from Khan Committee report in draft CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal is not acceptable.

<<<Click here for the letter>>>> 

03.11.2017 Meeting with CMD BSNL:

GS, President, FS & AGS (HQ) met CMD, BSNL expressed our serious resentment against unilateral decision for CPSU Cadre Hierarchy wherein the Khan Committee report has been diluted. Also, Sr. SDE / Sr. AO non-functional grades are made functional to stagnate the executives. We handed over our protest letter to CMD BSNL in person and mentioned that while framing the draft proposal on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, Pers. Cell has not taken the views / suggestions of AIBSNLEA into consideration.

Any deviation from Khan Committee report is not acceptable to us. CMD BSNL after detailed discussion assured to look into the matter and also advised us to discuss the matter with Director (HR). He will also speak to Director (HR) on this issue.

B. Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations in BSNL: We requested CMD BSNL to get an early approval on implementation 3rd PRC recommendations in BSNL with full 15% fitment benefits from the DoT as the same has been approved by the BSNL Board. CMD BSNL mentioned that BSNL Board approval on implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL has been sent to DoT for issuance of Presidential Directives. On the reporting of one Association that Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) is not in favour of 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL, CMD BSNL reacted that Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) is one step ahead than us to implement the 3rd PRC recommendations in BSNL and recently he had informal meetings with Secretary (T) and Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) and discussed the matter and requested for its implementation in BSNL. Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) and Secretary (T) both are working in speedy manner to approve the 3rd PRC report implementation in BSNL.

CMD BSNL categorically mentioned that there may be some delay in getting approval from the Govt but 3rdPRC report will be implemented in BSNL.

C. Increase in Superannuation benefits from 3% to 5%: We requested CMD BSNL to get approval of DoT on increase of Superannuation benefits from 3% to 5%. CMD BSNL mentioned that after the approval of BSNL Board to increase the Superannuation benefits from 3% to 5%, the proposal has been sent to DoT for issuance of Presidential Directives.

We extended our sincere thanks for getting approved rhe 3rd PRC report implementation in BSNL with full 15% fitment benefits and increase in Superannuation benefits from 3% to 5%.

D. Filling of vacant Gr. “B” and Gr. “A” posts: We requested to get resolved that pending court cases through BSNL’s Advocate on a fast track manner so that the CPC can be conducted to fill up the vacant Gr ”B” and Gr” A” vacant posts. About 17,000 posts are lying vacant. CMD BSNL assured to look into the matter


03.11.2017 Update on the matter regarding seniority of 147 SDEs:

The matter came up for hearing today in the Hon’ble Supreme Court and posted for final hearing after two weeks.

02.11.2017                                       Status on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy


Management Committee of BSNL Board has discussed & approved in principle the draft proposal submitted by PGM(Pers.) to BSNL Management Committee but BSNL Management Committee has advised Pers. Cell to have discussions & to take opinion of other executives' associations also mainly with AIBSNLEA before submitting the proposal to the BSNL Board for approval.


Majority Executive Association in coordination with PGM(Pers.) has formulated the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy draft proposal wherein the recommendations on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy by KHAN Committee has been diluted / distorted which is against the terms & conditions of the assurances given before absorption to BSNL executives. The GS Majority Executive Association was also one of the members of KHAN Committee who signed the recommendations & now deviated from the stand taken.


At the time of GR B absorption in Annex IV it was assured by DOT that the promotions will be as JTO—SDE—DE—DGM—SG JAG. means 5 promotions. These promotions will be de linked from the availability of posts.  All three major Associations ( AIBSNLEA, SNEA, AIGETOA ) have agreed and are party to the agreement and KHAN Committee.


Meeting held on 16/03/2012 with all the three Association it was again signed by all three Association that there must be 5 promotions as JTO-SDE-DE-DGM-SG JAG. The present Chairman of SNEA was the then GS who has signed the minutes of the said meeting.

Comrades let me recall the CPSU hierarchy /time bound functional and financial up gradation history and the stand taken by TEOA, and now U turn taken by SNEA.


In Vijaywada CWC of TEOA ( Com S L Reddy President and Com W Sheshagiri Rao GS ) the resolution of Time bound functional promotion from JTO to SG JAG grade was moved and it was approved by the CWC Vijaywada. Then combined meeting of TEOA and the another Association  a split from TESA led by Com G L Jogi at Hyderabad also confirmed and unanimously passed the resolution of 5 promotion with time bound manner. After formation of BSNL the TESA and other 10 Association came under one umbrella of AIBSNLEA under leadership of Com Prhlad Rai GS and AIBSNLEA also passed the resolution of 5 time bound promotions with functional status as JTO-SDE-DE-DGM-SG JAG. AIGETOA also submitted the proposal and also added some fast track promotional policy mechanism under leadership of Com R P Sahu GS.


In DOT era an executive recruited as the then ES (engineering supervisor) renamed as  JE (junior engineer) re designated as JTO was retiring as POTA DE. POTA means Purely officiating temporary adhoc DE with substantive cadre as TES GR B only after putting 30 to 35 years of service. As there was a functional promotions with availiability of posts and ADET parallel recruitment. There was a huge frustration amongst executives. Hence to overcome this situation at the time of absorption in annex IV it was agreed by management that 5 Time bound functional promotions upto SG JAG level delinking from the availability of posts will be made.


In the letter 03/01/2014 written under the banner of united forum and signed by all three GS that is Com Prhlad Rai , Com K Sabestin and Com Ravisheel Verma also it is requested for  promotion from JTO to SG JAG.


Now being recognized (subject to outcome of different court cases decisions) has signed the CPSU hierarchy with allowing additional SR SDE category and lowering the functional promotion in time bound up to AGM with delinking of availability of POSTS. This stand has diluted the earlier stand taken by their predecessor. It is nothing but the replica of DOT era promotions. If we see the t drawbacks of this agreed so called diluted CPSU hierarchy with an Association whose recognition is subjected to the court decision then it will be the major injustice with executives.


JTO brought to E1 scale, No functional promotion in time bound manner  delinked from availability of posts, Residency period in SDE to DE increased from existing 5 years to 10 years due to insertion of Sr SDE Scale in E3 E4 scale no scope of furtherance of E5-E6 scale, No roaster applicability even being functional promotion is this an  achievement ? All these actions are the breach of faith of executives and violation of KHAN Committee report and DOP & T and DPE guide lines. I think this is a black day for BSNL Executives carrier.

           AIBSNLEA will protest against the such proposal which will harm the assured career progression.
