Need of united struggles for the settlement of wage revision:

GS replies Shri P. Abhimanyu, General Secretary, BSNL Employees Union, CHQ in reference to his letter number BSNLEU/103 (Forum) dated 10.08.2017 on the subject the need of united struggles for the settlement of wage revision. While appreciating his feelings that the wage revision of BSNL employees is must GS has categorically mentioned that DoT and Government should give a special consideration to dispense the affordability clause of 3rd PRC with reference to BSNL as it is discharging certain important responsibilities on behalf of the Govt. of India by implementing NOFN successfully, NFS and LWE projects assigned to BSNL. BSNL also provides reliable telecom services to customers during natural calamities in the country on priority without getting any extra financial support from the government. BSNL also governs the tariffs in telecom sector and ensure telecom services on affordable rates to the customers.

 

At present CMD BSNL along with complete BSNL Board is making its sincere and honest efforts for the implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL. Hon'ble MoSC (I/C) is also of the same view and making efforts to get the Govt. approval for dispension of the said affordability clause of 3rd PRC report for BSNL. In this connection as per our discussions held with CMD BSNL on 09.08.2017, an internal committee of BSNL officers has been constituted to explore the modalities for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit. The committee meeting is over and the report is being submitted shortly which will be placed before the Management committee of BSNL and thereafter to the BSNL Board for approval. As assured by CMD BSNL after the approval of BSNL Board, he will take up the matter in DoT for its approval and issuance of Presidential Directives.

 

In our opinion, we should closely monitor all these developments and in case we find any difficulty at any level in this regard then immediately we all BSNL Unions and Associations should discuss and decide the strategy to impress upon the DoT / Govt. for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL through our decisive struggle. We assure our fullest participation in the struggle, if need be.

09.08.2017: CMD BSNL meeting with BSNL Unions and Associations Core Group:

 

GS along with GS of BSNLEU and GS SNEA was invited by CMD BSNL today at 12 PM to discuss regarding implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL. GS NFTE BSNL was also invited but due to lack of communication he could not attend the meeting. CMD BSNL initiated the discussion on 3rd PRC report implementation in BSNL. He mentioned that in 3rd PRC report some relaxation in the affordability clause to some specific PSUs have been recommended. On this basis, we can make a case to the Administrative Ministry i.e. DoT for approval. He explained that in general, the 3rd PRC recommendations are not favourable to BSNL but we have to take some favoarble points to get implemented the 3rd PRC report in BSNL. Comrade GS AIBSNLEA suggested him to immediately form a committee in BSNL Corporate Office to study the 3rd PRC report and to submit a report with in one week for consideration of BSNL Management committee and thereafter to the BSNL Board. CMD BSNL appreciated our suggestion and mentioned that immediately a committee will be formed in BSNL Corporate Office which will submit its report with in one week to place in the next BSNL Management Committee meeting and hereafter immediately in the BSNL Board for approval. CMD BSNL explained that he has already discussed in DoT with senior officers on this issue wherein Additional Secretary (T), who is the Govt nominee Board of Director also in BSNL Board, has mentioned that since he has already supported BSNL’s view point in the Cabinet Secretary meeting. In view of that he is in support with BSNL on this issue. CMD BSNL explained that BSNL is not getting any financial support from the Govt. and regulating the tariffs in Telecom Sector of the country. BSNL has paid more than Rs. 2 lakh Crores to the Govt. in terms of license fee, taxes dividend etc after its inception. Against the notional loan of Rs. 7500 Crores, BSNL has paid Rs.14000 Crores as interest amount only @ 14.5% to DoT. After its formation, BSNL has never been given any financial support by the Govt. rather BSNL is implementing Govt. prestigious projects for example NOFN, NFS, LWE, etc. with out getting much profit.

 

CMD BSNL further explained that Member (F) of DoT is of the opinion that in case if the 3rd PRC report is implemented in BSNL than BSNL will be closed with in three years. But, in his opinion in case if the 3rd PRC report is not implemented in BSNL than BSNL may be closed with in three months time. The additional burden of Rs. 2800 Crores on implementation of 3rd PRC report with full 15% fitment benefit in BSNL may be earned with the help of all the BSNL employees but to save the Rs. 2800 Crores by not implementing 3rdPRC report may give three times loss to BSNL. In view of this Govt should consider 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL. He advised all to work together for the implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL on proiority. He further reiteriated that he is ready to resign from the post of CMD BSNL in case if the 3rd PRC report is not impelemnetd in BSNL. We further suggested him that first CMD BSNL should get the approval of BSNL Board on 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL and then sent to DoT for approval thereafter only we will be able impress upon to DoT for its implementation in BSNL.

 

Let all the BSNL Unions and Assocations come together to get implemented the 3rd PRC report in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit as a single and common demand through negotiations or the decisive struggle keeping aside all the differences at this crucial juncture.

DPE issued order regarding decision on allowances other than the allowances under 'Cafeteria approach' w.r.t. Pay Revision of Board level and below Board level Executives and Non­ Unionised  Supervisors  of  Central Public Sector Enterprises  (CPSEs) w.e.f. 01.01.2017-.....<<<Click here for letter>>>>

 

Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations in BSNL-Process in this regard…….

DPE has issued OM W-02/0028/2017-DPE (WC)-GL-XIII/17 dated 3rd August, 2017 regarding Pay Revision of Board Level and below Board Level executives and Non-Unionised Supervisors of Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) w.e.f. 01.01/2017.

As per the presentation submitted by AIBSNLEA CHQ and consistent efforts taken with the Hon’ble MOC , Secretary Telecom, Secretary DPE, and CMD BSNL  for the dispension  in the  affordability clause for BSNL  and extension of 3rd  PRC to BSNL Employees has now been reflected in DPE OM dated 03.08.2017.

In this regard, AIBSNLEA CHQ has written so many letters to Hon’ble MOC/Secretary  DOT/DPE  /CMD BSNL and met them personally stating that as per the Para 5 of the 3 PRC committee recommendations as per the Telecom Policy 1999,  BSNL has been formed to meet out the specific agenda  of Government of India. i.e. providing Telecom Services without any budgetary support and BSNL is paying License Fee, Spectrum charges, and other charges  as per the order of the Government of India from time to time deviating to the agreed principles on 01/10/2000.

A letter written by GS CHQ to Honorable MOC Shri Manoj Sinha Ji  on 08.06.2017 <<<Click here for GS AIBSNLEA Letter>>>>  has been furnished for the reference of our members.  The DPE OM dated 03/08/2017 vide Annexure-II Para II of Page No 19 which is reproduced below.

Affordability to certain types of CPSEs:

b)  The affordability condition shall also be applicable to the CPSEs registered under Section 25 of the Companies Act, 1956, or under Section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013 (which by the very nature of their business are not-for profit companies) for implementation of the revised compensation structure (including Performance Related Pay) as being recommended for other CPSEs.

c)  There are also certain CPSEs which have been formed as independent Government companies under a statute to perform a specific agenda / regulatory functions. The revenue stream of such CPSEs are not linked to profits from the open market in a competitive scenario but are governed through the fees & charges, as prescribed and amended from time to time by the Government. There is no budgetary support provided by the Government to such CPSEs. In consideration that the impact of the revised compensation structure (including Performance Related Pay) would supposedly form the part of revenue stream for such CPSEs, the affordability condition shall not be applicable to these CPSEs; however the implementation of same shall be subject to the approval of Administrative Ministry upon agreeing and ensuring to incorporate the impact of the revised compensation structure into the revenue stream.

On the basis of the above recommendations now BSNL Board has to recommend implementation of 3rd PRC report with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL and thereafter it has to be sent to DoT for the approval and issuance of the Presidential Directives. We have to impress upon BSNL Management in this regard for an early Board approval and sending to DoT thereafter we have to pursue in DoT for the approval of BSNL Board proposal and early issuance of presidential directives.  

Comrades, as assured by CMD BSNL, the 3rd PRC recommendations has to be approved by BSNL Board for its implementation in BSNL and thereafter to get the approval of DoT for issuance of Presidential Directives.   We are confident that CMD BSNL will fulfill his commitment in this regard. Let us,  concentrate on this issue and pursue vigorously for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL.

CMD explained that it is for the people those who do not at all work and contribute to BSNL they may be dealt through this rule. For good people it will not adversely affect. We further told that this rule may be misused by management with vengeance attitude. He told that will be looked after by the top management.  But, we still requested to withdraw this amendment.

BSNL Corporate Office issues clarification that the Immunity from transfer is available to the Recognized Union(s), Recognized Association & Support Association and the transfer of the Office Bearers to CHQ/Circle/SSA HQs falls under the facility of "Immunity from transfer" therefore, such transfer are to be treated as transfer in the interest of service.

26.07.2017: Status of 3rd PRC notification by DPE:

DPE has send the minutes of the Cabinet Meeting held on 19.07.2017 to the Cabinet Secretariat for confirmation in the last week. The confirmation of minutes is expected by this week and thereafter the OM on notification of 3rd PRC implementation may be issued by DPE in the next week. After the notification of the OM the respective PSUs will take decision regarding its implementation for their executives. And, thereafter the respective PSUs will sent to their respective administrative ministries for the approval and issuance of Presidential Directives. In this manner after the notification of DPE OM on 3rd PRC implementation, BSNL Board will take the decision for its implementation in BSNL for its executives and thereafter it will be sent to DoT for approval and issuance of Presidential Directives.

 

We have to see that notification of DPE OM is allowing BSNL to implement 3rd PRC report or not. Whether the Cabinet has empowered respective PSU Boards or administrative ministries to give dispension in the affordability clause as recommended earlier in the interim report of 3rd PRC.

 

In case, the respective PSU Boards/ administrative ministry are empowered by Cabinet for dispension in the affordability condition of the PSU then it is the BSNL Board and administrative ministry who can take decision immediately for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL for its executives otherwise BSNL Board has to take up the matter with the administrative ministry to take the Govt. approval on dispension in the affordability clause for BSNL.

 

AIBSNLEA is monitoring all these developments very closely and will decide the future course of actions accordingly.

21.07.2017:AIBSNLEA efforts for   3rd PRC implementation in BSNL:

AIBSNLEA CHQ have been making its best efforts in DoT / Ministry/ DPE to conveyance the concern authorities for the implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL Accordingly the facts are being informed to all concern through our CHQ Website. As rightly reported by AIBSNLEA in the morning of 20.7.2017 in our CHQ Website the actual status and process of 3rd PRC implementation in PSUs / BSNL was later on confirmed by Shri Niteswar Kumar ji (IAS) PS to Hon'ble MOSC in the meeting held with AIBSNLEA on 20.7.2017( Evening). Hence , AIBSNLEA is correctly informing all the developments on day to day   basis to our members through our CHQ web site and doing hard work to ensure 3rd PRC Implementation in BSNL. But the so called Majority Association instead of informing the actual status and truth is creating hipe in the minds of the Executives for which the reasons are best known to them.

The actual process of 3rd PRC implementation is that after the notification of 3rd PRC implementation in PSUs for the Pay hike of Executives the respective PSUs will take decision in their Board and will send the proposal to the Administrative Ministry for the issuance of the Presidential Directive. Similarly after DPE notification of 3rd PRC recommendations, BSNL Board will take the decision and will send to DOT for approval and for issuance of Presidential Directives. Now in the DPE notification it has to be seen that whether the Administrative Ministry/Board of the PSUs have been empowered by the Cabinet to allow dispension of the “Affordability Clause"of 3rd PRC report. In case Board/Administrative Ministry is empowered then BSNL Board and DOT Administration should implement the 3rd PRC in BSNL in the interest of its Viability otherwise, we have to fight organisationally.

Today GS contacted the concerned Officers of DPE with regard to the Notification of 3rd PRC, it is understood that the draft notification on cabinet approval has been processed to the higher level Officers for approval. The notification of 3rd PRC is expected in the next week.

AIBSNLEA is committed for 3rd PRC implementation and in case the BSNL Board/DOT Administration do not implement it,  in that  case AIBSNLEA will never hesitate to go on indefinite Strike.  Let us watch the developments closely and will take immediate organisational action, if required at the appropriate time.
