24.04.2015:  BSNL Corporate Office issued tenure transfer of SDEs. << click here >>>
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.




20.04.2015:  MAKE TWO DAYS STRIKE ON 21.04.2015 AND 22.04.2015, 100% SUCCESS.

CHQ:  Forum of BSNL Unions / Associations & other Unions/Associations met today morning and after analysing the CMD's meeting held on Friday, 17.04.2015 and unanimously decided to make 100% success of two days nation wide strike on 21.04.2015 and 22.04.2015. Since, most of the demands pertains to DoT/Govt. and till date no initiative has been taken by DoT to hold the meeting with the Forum or to take some initiative for resolution of the demands. All the CHQ leaders of Maharashtra Circle, Circle Office Bearers /District Secretaries and activists of AIBSNLEA are requested to ensure 100% participation in the strike call.

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.

J.E. (C/E) is the basic feeder cadre for the post of AE (C/E), whereas AE (C/E) promoted from JE(C/E) and AEE recruited through UPSC were promoted to the post of EE(C/E) in the ratio 50 : 50.

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.

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.

          <<<<<<                  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

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.

  Decisions of the meeting of Forum held on 7th January 2015

A meeting of the Forum was held today, 7th January 2015, at the Corporate Office premises presided over by Com. Islam Ahmad, President, NFTE. The convener reported about the developments and actions taken after the last meeting of the Forum held on 30-12-2014. All the unions/associations  of executives and non-executives, who have not come to the Forum so far  have been approached to be party to the 'Save BSNL Campaign' and connected programme of action to make them completely successful. Members of Parliament of various political parties have been addressed to take up the issues of BSNL and its revival with the government. All the 11 Central Trade Unions as also independent federations in Railways, Defence, Postal, other central Government Employees Unions, State government employees, Insurance, Banks  etc. also have been approached for solidarity and support for our struggle. Press Statements were issued focusing on our 'Save BSNL Campaign', which have been published in some newspapers.

After detailed discussion, the following decisions were taken:

1. As per the reports so far received, the dharna yesterday was held in most of the centres. The General Secretaries will collect full information and wherever the same has not been organised should be told to conduct the same at least on the last day. Good number of comrades have participated from UP(West) yesterday and from Haryana today in the dharna at Corporate Office. C.O. and NTR circle should bring maximum workers tomorrow (08.01.2015) for the dharna in C.O.

2. The Circle level Conventions as part of the 'Save BSNL Campaign' should be organised early with the participation of all unions. Com.P.Abhimanyu, General Secretary, BSNLEU is entrusted with the task of co-ordinating and fixing the date of the conventions in consultation with other General Secretaries.

3. The 'Save BSNL Campaign' should be effectively organised. More than one crore signature is to be collected in the Memorandum to the Prime Minister and all the unions together have to make maximum efforts for the same.  Clear message should go from the General Secretaries to organise the programme in a very effective way. The target fixed is one crore signature, but it should be more than that. The Circles should plan in such a way that number of signatures collected should be more than 50 times the number of the employees in the circle. The signatures thus collected should reach the All India Convener (V.A.N. Namboodiri, Convener, Forum, D-7, Telegraph Place, Gole Market, New Delhi -110001  Mob: 9868231431) before 15th February 2015, so as to submit on the day of the Parliament March to the Prime Minister.

4. The details of the arrangements for the Parliament March on 25th February 2015 will be further discussed in the next meeting of the Forum. The unions/associations intimated the number of participants in the Parliament March from their respective unions/associations.

Other unions will also intimate the number of participants.

5. Necessary funds for the Parliament March and other connected matters will be decided and contributed by the unions/associations in the next meeting of the Forum.

6. Circulars in the ‘Save BSNL Campaign’ should be issued both in English and Hindi. A Note on how to approach the people should be prepared and circulated. The Circle Secretaries should translate these in the regional language and circulate. Local comrades should meet the M.P. of the constituency and request for support.

7.  Joint meetings of all the unions/associations at Circle and SSA levels should be held to plan the programmes in an effective way.




Dear Comrade,

The 7 lakh Coal India Workers are on strike from 6th January 2015, protesting against proposed disinvestment/privatisation of the coal sector through the Coal Ordinance issued by the government after the winter session of the Parliament, in which the Coal Bill could not be passed due to strong opposition. The disinvestment/privatisation will result in the coal mines of the country being handed over to the corporates / big industrial houses for maximising their profit. This will be the loss of national assets. The strike is complete. The demands of the coal workers are that the Coal Ordinance should be scrapped and the Coal Bill pending in the Parliament should be withdrawn. This is a 'do or die' struggle of the workers of the largest public sector in the country.

All the unions in the coal sector including BMS, INTUC, HMS, CITU, AITUC etc. are organsing the strike jointly. As the BSNL Unions/Associations have gone on joint strike against disinvestment/privatisation of BSNL, the coal workers are also on the struggle path against the same. The struggle requires our whole-hearted support and solidarity. The government cannot be allowed to privatise the precious coal sector.

The Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations in its meeting held today, 7th January 2015, discussed the matter and has unanimously decided to call upon the BSNL workers to jointly organise demonstrations on 8th January at all SSAs/Circles and Corporate office protesting against the Coal Ordinance, privatisation/disinvestment of coal sector and also extending full solidarity and support to the indefinite strike of the coal workers.

Let us organise the Protest Demonstration with massive participation.

It is the first time in the History of BSNL after its formation that the 27 DGM Regular Promotions orders in the Telecom Operation steam and 123DGM (Finance) Regular Promotion are issued. With the untiring effort of AIBSNLEA, the BSNLMSRR-2009 came into existence and  on completion of required STS  ( 4 Year )service  these regular promotion  orders have been issued in Telecom Finance and Operation Streams. It is a great breakthrough in the Promotional avenues of BSNL executives. Though these DGMs have less span of their remaining service period, hence may not inspire GM Promotion But Young JTOs/JAOs may inspire their Promotion to the SAG/HAG level in future. Let us continue our efforts for timely CPCs.

GS explained the role of AIBSNLEA in the view of viability of BSNL, which is the most important issue on this crucial juncture. Com. GS explained the discriminatory attitude of the Government towards BSNL in the terms of payment of Rural deficits, ADC Charges, Heavy BWA Spectrum Fee and notional loan of Rs.7500 Crores etc. He explained BSNL Executives' are not at all responsible for today's situation because they are not the policy makers, but involved only in the policy implementation.
