Today is the constitution Day

26.11.2015                        APPEAL TO ALL AIBSNLEA MH CIRCLE COMRADES










Comrades, let me tell you frankly, still today also BSNL CO Mumbai is expressing the same favoritism to one group of executive Association.


An AGM level officer from Marathwada region & his transfer order was issued in the month of October 15, to Asam/NETF tenure Circle, on long stay basis. The officer then approached to another group, for change of transfer & posting station from hard tenure to soft tenure in Maharashtra. Without getting cancellation of that order issued by BSNL CO New Delhi, BSNL CO Mumbai office issued his order to soft tenure Gadchiroli, as TDM Gadchiroli, in L/A capacity. The process of issuing DGM L/A order is in progress and yet to be completed and prior to it the officers name was selected to work as TDM L/A at Gadchiroli.


There are Some persons always say that we support the policy then as per the policy the first 10/40 executives who are in the zone of consideration of longest stay of Circle/SSA seniority,  their application cannot be considered for change of Station /SSA/Circle especially for Circle/SSA  hard & soft tenure. Here the officer had already transferred out of circle to hard tenure then how he is eligible to get soft tenure with in the circle. Is it not the break in Policy?


Comrades, kindly remember the views expressed by the other group about a lady officer of SDE cadre of PUNE SSA, on her request transfer to ITPC Pune. How low level words were being used to describe the lady. We can quote some wordings and epithets as she has used her mussel power, money power, Bengali Baba, Black Magic, and so on. She is in top of seniority list of SSA as the above case.   Now what happened in this AGM level transfer case from Marathwada region case? Why now such dirty epithets are being used in respect of this case. Can we say that, is it an improvement in expression? Or, something else has made them to keep silent over this issue.


While issuing this order there is no reference of corporate office order and letter issued to corporate says that already we have issued the order for soft tenure, so please cancel this order but actual facts are different. We have already represented the case for the review as this individual case has broken the transfer policy guide lines.

18.11.2015                                   Hireling Minstrel of Administration  

Kudos the wrong doing of administration, for getting favoritism, and for individual benefit is nothing but to declare oneself as a YES MAN.


Recently BSNL CO Mumbai has issued the letter with reference to the letter issued  by corporate office and endorsed their views by advising the Circle Secretaries of recognized Associations of Maharashtra circle not to take up the individual cases in regards with transfer and posting of Executives. It is a general advice to Association.


Comrades Association means individuals are associated with each other and make an institution and work on condominium principle to propagate the interest of cadre/ fraternity welfare which includes the individual also.


In this letter it is also mentioned that in any such individual cases the policy if it is not followed then it can be brought the notice of administration for review. Association is made of individuals and will always take such cases where injustice is observed on prima facie.


In some genuine cases on medical ground, personal ground such as midterm of education year, or dependent/wards problem of severe nature, these can be the exceptional cases but sometimes administration seems to act smartly and gave benefit to those who are so called flatterer to them. Such cases yes, comrades, has to be taken at task by the Associations.


AIBSNLEA Maharashtra will always fight for justice not only to their members but also for all executive fraternity. Maharashtra Circle administration is inclined towards one group, that has also been proved up to corporate level in dealing HR issues of executives. In our all previous correspondence with administration we have pointed out how the policy is being kept aside for individuals of the particular group and not uniformly adopted, applied to all. Hence we have served a trade Union Notice to administration.


When someone is  supporting in loud voice  to the letter issued by BSNL CO Mumbai regarding the taking up of individual cases in the plea that they always support policy then one question start mingling in the mind that, when it was a policy adopted by Circle management not to forward the request transfer application of SDEs for inter Circle transfer then how the application of a SDE from Nagar to BSNL CO Delhi is being forwarded to CVC cell and that to also being a Circle office bearer?, and at the same time application of SDE from Jalgaon was rejected on plea of shortage to WTR. Is not discrimination? Break of Policy? Another case who has not applied to NCNGN but application converted to NCNGN at Circle office by CO Mumbai as their own can we justify the rulings? Third case is deletion of waiting list without approval of competent authority. If we start counting such cases, there are N number of cases we can quote here where it is crystal clear the administration is inclined towards on group. At these times, then why these so called policy follower have kept their mouth shut?


We the AIBSNLEA members always will fight against injustice and against the discrimination made by the administration towards the executive fraternity irrespective of membership of individual.

Comrades, As per the clause of transfer policy the official whose service is less than 2 years, may be given choice of station. The base is of humanity. The retiring official should not face any hardship at the time of retirement, the BSNL has included in transfer policy.


The order of an Executive of AGM rank from Sindhudurg to Pune is issued at own cost and request and that also prior to just 5 months before of completion of Two Years. His tenure is going to complete in March 16. By taking own cost the official has saved BSNL TA/DA /TFR Grant tuning more than one lack rupees.


This has not happened for first time. One month back only CO Mumbai office issued a DGM L/A order to CO Mumbai to Nashik As DGM L/A at own cost even prior to  completion of 2 years stay break and that also for non tenure to non tenure station. So CO Mumbai office previously was also kind enough towards one group only but comrades, our strength and oppose towards inclined and indifferent approach of Sr. G M (HQ &A) CO Mumbai towards that group, made to change to give that benefit to our comrades also,  but for that we have to struggle united and continuously.

                DoT plans new holding company for BSNL, MTNL


The department of telecommunications (DoT) is actively considering setting up a holding company, with state-run telecom companies Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) as its subsidiaries. The move is expected to revive the ailing public sector undertaking companies, by synergizing their operations.

This is one option recommended by IIM-Bangalore in a report on measures for reviving the firms, according to a senior official from the department. The others include delisting
 MTNL and then merging it with BSNL, and MTNL becoming a subsidiary of BSNL.


"The first option of a holding company, with two public sector undertakings (PSUs) as subsidiaries, looks most feasible, as of now. In this, MTNL won't have to be delisted. And, we can easily synergize their operations," the official added. DOT had asked IIM Bangalore to undertake a feasibility report on the merger of BSNL and MTNL. "A final decision is expected to be taken in next few months, which will go for a Cabinet approval subsequently," the official said.

Anarchy and favoritism at circle office Mumbai


BSNL CO issued inter circle transfer order, of SDEs and one SDE from Ahemadnagar was transferred to BSNL CO N Delhi  CVC cell. Circle office Mumbai is not forwarding  request applications of SDEs / JTOs to other Circles except tenure Circle then how the application  of said SDE was forwarded to BSNL CO for CVC Cell? Answer is easy the officer transferred is an Office bearer of the other executive association and their leader get felicitated by administration. Definitely there is a nexus, a chain, operating in staff section that prepare the data base and initiates the file with favorable remarks. We appeal the administrator to exhibit the courage to dig out the odds. Shri BARI SDE from Jalgaon request to WTR, rejected on plea of shortage then how the case of office bearer of other executive association is recommended when there is  a customary not to post office bearers of Unions/Association in Vigilance Cell.




The latest position of the BSNL on all India basis and position of BSNL at Maharashtra


Comrades, if we see, the data shown in that chart, it is a very sorry state about wireless position. The first Number is more than four times bigger in numbers than us. What is the reason? Let us introspect our self as well as study and prepare a data base for the down fall in wireless segment.

If we see the population wise in Maharashtra the total phone connections (Wire+Wireless) is near about 8 crores. There is some scope in getting additional new customers but a huge scope for port in from other operators.


Port change mainly depends on quality of service, marketing, affordability for both means to provider and customers.


Aggression in marketing, sale, availability of network, hassle free access, corporate look and environment, quick decision and redress mechanism of complaint, user friendly plans and options, and decentralization of Powers should be the tools for increasing the base.

All comrades are requested to please prepare data of your SSA and the traffic analysis and traffic data BTS wise with loading percentage.



CS served the notice to  MH BSNL Management for indifferent attitude of SR GM (HQ &A) towards AIBSNLEA members of Maharashtra circle.

After receipt of notice the administration started contacting office bearers and some individual members asking whether CS has consulted to you prior to issue of notice. Whether CS has taken you in confidence? And so on. Even Sr GM (HQ &A) contacted our President Com Mohire and enquiring that whether CS has issued this Notice as his own then com Mohire told all communication must be with CS and he has been authorized in Our Osmanabad COB meet as well as the administration has no business in this regard.

Comrades this is an unethical action on the part of administration and proves its indifferent attitude towards AIBSNLEA. We strongly protest such activities and matter is already been reported to CHQ and Com Prlhad Rai  GS AIBSNLEA CHQ to inform DIR (HR) BSNL CO.

A detailed report in this regard follows



GS, FS AGS (HQ) met GM (Admn) and discussed regarding improvement in the revised policy for service GSM, RSTC & Broadband to Executives and retired Executives. Following points were discussed.

(a)  Enhancement of 200 free calls limit per month on RSTC, & enhancement of free call limit on GSM Telephone connection to STS level officer from 500 calls to 800 calls.

(b)  Rent free Broadband service connection to all Executives with BSNL 750 plan.

(c)  All the BSNL executives should be provided GSM Handsets of the cost of Rs.3000/-, Rs. 4000/- & Rs. 5000/- to the JTO/SDE/DE level executives instead of Rs. 1500/- , Rs. 2500/- Rs. 3500/- respectively.

(d)  All Executives’ should be allowed CUG facility on RSTC at circle level.

(e)  3G Mobile service with Data facility to all Executives. 

GM (Admn) informed that the proposal is being sent to BSNL MC for approving data facility to BSNL executives. Necessary orders in this regard will be issued after getting the approval from MC. He further informed that a proposal has also been sent to MC to allow BSNL Pensioners to opt for CGHS facility.

The indifferent attitude of GM (HR), MH circle towards the members of AIBSBNLEA: Director (HR) immediately spoke to CGMT Maharashtra and discussed the matter and advised him to further discuss the matter with her by tomorrow on 30/10/15 for an early solution. CGMT Maharashtra rushed to Delhi on 29/10/15 by evening flight. Today there is a meeting of CGMT MH with DIR (HR) at BSNL CO Delhi.


29.10.2015Corporate Office issued orders for cancellation of transfer orders and retention of the SDEs to all India hard tenure with immediate effect.

<<<< Click for order >>>



AIBSNLEA Maharashtra Circle has raised the issue of counting of MTNL stay in territorial Circle as per the

 transfer policy guidelines clause 11d and the view of the AIBSNLEA is upheld by corporate office and in

 response to that Maharashtra Circle has under compulsion of corporate guidelines  made a revised list

 and sent to corporate office and AIBSNLEA MH has taken pains to pursue it at corporate office and office

 bearers of AIBSNLEA MH has personally visited BSNL Corporate Office  to plead the case. This has result

 in getting the orders cancelled.   

It was a difficult task to convince the BSNL management as one of  the other Association of executives

 has  strongly opposed the issue due to the interest best known to them and the  stand of CHQ of the said 

association in this regard  was to oppose to the  counting of stay of non territorial Circle in Territorial

 Circle  rather than taking up the matter for the benefit of their members, may be due to some ulterior motive 

or vested interest, which god only knows.  Everyone is well aware that a letter was also written to Dir (HR) 

to oppose the inclusion of MTNL stay by the other Association


Hence AIBSNLEA truly representing and taking care of the executives of all the disciplines took the lead to 

protect the interest of executives irrespective of the membership of association and upheld the Justice to 

al the eligible executives.  That is why the common members got  their Justice at their Doorsteps


It needless to say that cirtain people can be seen through out our life to criticise any move whether it is

22.10.2015    HAPPY DASSERA TO ALL



Really BSNL Maharashtra Circle office is doing tricks and applying FUNDAS resembling with word magic in transfer and postings of Executives, by applying so called intellectual ideas.


Let me explain to all our comrades. On 9/9/15 SDE to DE promotion orders were issued by corporate office. Expertise and seasoned staff section Maharashtra Circle applied their own Funda. The posting file was kept pending days together. Actually 8 SDEs were there in the list out of that, only two SDEs, one from Sangli and another from Satara SSA. These two SSA are having no vacancy in cadre of DE, hence it is difficult for administration to accommodate. Out of these two one SDE from Sangli whose name is in this order as DE has some severe medical problem and he has already requested for his retention at Sangli on that ground which is also enlisted in exemption from transfer category so he has been posted at Sangli. Now only one is left. He also requested own cost at Pune. His request was not considered and posting was proposed at Akola where there is acute shortage along with his request to give Pune mobile. Here an intellectual idea applied and this officer has posted to Kalyan and order issued after 38 days. The officer again requested to post for Kolhapur on 16/10/15 evening and get relieved to Kalyan, and it is understood he has also not joined Kalyan as on date & his application of request has not reached Circle office. Now the Circle on 19/10/15 issued a single transfer order of Shri Yadav DE from Sangli to Akola in the name of accommodation to Shri Mujawar DE who has medical problem. When the administration has got a officer to post him at Akola in regular promotion list , he post him at Kalyan and again one officer from Sangli on long stay at Sangli pretext transferred him to Akola. BSNL has to incur double TA/DA expenditure. Now it is understood that the officer from Satara has requested Kolhapur and the order if issued as per his request then it will be at own cost. As per transfer and posting policy either new or senior most in the Circle has to move as per Hon Nagpur Court verdict. If Kolhapur vacancy has to be filled then there is a request pending from Sangli to Kolhapur (Com. TakkanawarDE) and is available in waiting list published in the intranet. So automatically there will not be any problem for accommodation for Shri Mujawar. If this new request has to operate for change of posting of regular DE promotion then old request also must be considered.


All these cause a chaos in the minds of executives so it was an easy task to post as is where is basis or post the officer from this promotion list to Akola.


BSNL corporate office has again issued instructions to all ERP heads to ensure the leave encashment payments to be given to the retiring employee in the same month along with that month’s salary. At initial stage there was a problem in ERP-SAP about running the pay roll salary model and supplementary module. The problem has been resolved and the procedure to run these two models in ERP –SAP has communicated to all concern. All procedural details are again circulated in this letter.


                                            <<<<<< Copy of Circular >>>


Corporate office has issued a list of 1159 DEs (regular/adhoc) who were promoted as regular/adhoc DEs but their date of Joining has not been communicated to corporate office by respective Circles. Corporate office instructed to all concerned to give all information about joining of all DES enlisted in the Excel sheet.


Comrades yesterday only we discussed about date of joining of an officer who could not join in 40 days to his ordered destination that is, on or before 18/10/15. In this list also his number is appearing. Definitely his joining date will be after 40 days and Circle administration has to make request to corporate office due to our prompt and fast track staff section action  who required 38 days to issue the order hence official can not avail his joining time hence the officer may please be allowed to join after 40 days also.

20.10.2015 Comrades, AIBSNLEA Maharashtra Circle was continuously perusing with Maharashtra Circle administration about pendency of Rule 8 transfers of JTOs since we took over the charge as a Circle secretary. We have taken this issue in our agenda point meeting held with CGMT Maharashtra on 23 June 15. BSNL Maharashtra Circle was lingering the process. We have also taken up the issue of SDEs out of Circle transfer issue with CGMT Maharashtra. The stand of Administration was acute shortage of JTOs and SDEs. This issue was experienced near about by all circles. Hence we feel that new recruitment is the solution for this issue. That is why, we refer this issue to AIBSNLEA CHQ and Com Pralhad Rai GS AIBSNLEA has taken this issue at task and Corporate office has sought information for 50% direct quota vacancy position Circle wise and the rule 8 applications pending at Circle office. The report has to submit up to 31/10/15.


<<<< Click for letter >>>


Comrades Corporate office had issued the orders for regular DE in first week of September 15. Near about 8 SDEs of Maharashtra was got promotion to regular DE. All were retained at Maharashtra. The quick and prompt response by BSNL Maharashtra Circle administration especially by the staff section took near about 38 days to issue their posting order. Is this much delay is justified? Is it not an injustice to these executives?  Comrades you know that in Promotion the officer has to join within 40 days after the date of issue of corporate office order. The expiry date of joining was 18/10/15 Sunday. Circle office issued the order and displayed on intranet on 16/10/15 afternoon. Total 8 orders were issued. Out of 8 only One executive was posted to out of his working SSA 250 Km away from his home SSA. As there is no alternative, with his parent SSA to relieve him on promotion on 16/10/15 A/N then and then only he can join at his new assignment on 17/10/15 as on 18/10/15 being a Sunday. The said executive could  not / can avail joining time. Such a prompt, efficient Circle administration who is supposed to take care of their staff acted upon. It is understood that, some of us are supporting such so called active, intellectual, innovative, vibrant staff section chief. We are observing the situation. Now we know that the concerned executive will be asked by so called expertise in Hindi we may say Praveen in execution, and change of SSA application directly submitted to the Messiah  for consideration in own cost and request. Then marketing of their act as intellectual idea saved BSNL Money in transfer grant will be done. The said Messiah then suggest to transfer an SAG level officer from Nagpur to take GM EB Circle Office charge and giving lacks of rupees as transfer grant to ITS and depriving it to the executives who are the members of our unity. Comrades awake. Jago bhai. Giving change of SSA, considering request is not wrong, every trade union leader will always see the welfare of their members but at the same time he should also raise the voice for injustice. Now today also if the officer joined at his new or change of SSA, the joining will be after 40 days. How this grace period will be adjusted?  whether the officer has to forgo the promotion? Why the officer has to suffer? So many questions will arise and Circle administration has to give reply to corporate office. Let us hope for the best.

BSNL to allow landline users avail free call benefit on Mobile

BSNL mobile subscribers will soon be able to avail free calling benefits offered on their landline phone as the state-run firm is going to roll out a convergence platform that will sync subscribers’ mobile and fixed line connections.


“We are in the process of rolling out fix mobile convergence platform by Diwali. This will enable consumers avail value added service in mobile phones, make free night calls from mobile phones if they have subscribed to landline and host of other modern facilities,” BSNL Chairman and MD Shri. Anupam Shrivastava told PTI.


He said that with this roll out, consumers will be able to link their mobile and landline accounts.


“The sync between the two accounts will be such that it will enable our subscribers receive their landline calls on mobile phones,” Shrivastava said.


BSNL has invested over Rs 400 crores to modernize its landlines.


The company slipped to sixth position in terms of overall subscriber base in April. At the end of August, BSNL’s total subscriber base was around 7.8 crore. After a long period, BSNL in July and August 2015 ranked among top five mobile players in terms of net addition of monthly subscribers.


BSNL, however, has been losing customers in landline space despite offering free night calls from landline to any phone in India.


“We have been able to arrest decline rate in landline connections. In a few months and with launch of fix mobile convergence, our landline should turn positive. We have already turned gainer for mobile subscribers under mobile number portability scheme,” Shrivastava said.


The company has launched free roaming scheme which enables its subscribers to attend free incoming calls while travelling anywhere in the country at no extra cost.


“Free roaming scheme has become one of the major growth drivers for uptake in mobile subscriber number,” Shrivastava added.


The company is also in the process to tie up with Hitachi’s ATM business unit which will allow its landline customers, who pay bill offline, to make payment anytime during the day.


“Many landline users still pay bill at our counter. The counters are open for limited time and between peak office hours i.e. 10am — 2pm. We are partnering with Hitachi. It will install ATM at our premise which will also accept cash. BSNL customers will be able to pay their bills at this ATM as per their convenience,” Shrivastava said.


He said that Hitachi ATM machines will be rolled out initially in small cities around March 2016.


BSNL will also get revenue share from each transaction made on ATMs installed in its premise. Source (News in THE HINDU )

It is a practice, that the BSNL corporate office allots funds, as per the requests of employees for GPF advances, month wise. Then raise the requirement towards DOT for reimbursement. It is understood from corporate office, that the DoT is not making timely reimbursement of the amount spent by BSNL, for paying GPF advances. It is learnt that an amount of Rs. 890 crores is thus outstanding from the DoT till date. hence employees are not paid GPF advance in the month of September, since Corporate Office did not allot funds to circles for the same.

01.10.2015 78.2% IDA MERGER -  STILL A LONG LONG WAY TO GO !!!

GS, AIBSNLEA,   GS and  President AIRBSNLEWA met the concerned officers in DoT yesterday and discussed regarding 50% IDA Merger amounting to 78.2% IDA fitment benefit to pre 01.01.2007 and post 01.01.2007 BSNL pensioners. It is understood that some of the queries (which were statistical) of DoE have been replied by the Internal Finance of DoT and remaining (Justification part) are left for reply by the Pension Cell of DoT. The case has been received in the Pension Cell from Internal Finance of DoT.

Queries raised by DOE, 1) Regarding waiver of BSNL’s liability apart from payment of pension contribution as determined by Dept. Of Expenditure/ COS/ Cabinet Decision dated 27/1/2005 in contravention of / in pursuance of provisions made in Rule 37-A of CCS Pension Rules 1972 2)Related to  the Pensions paid/ Pensioner’s data of DoT Pensioners/ deemed DoT Pensioners w.e.f. 1/10/2000 onwards, its financial implications for the Govt. of India, 3) Details of any loans extended by DOT to BSNL over last 15 years, 4) Financial viability of BSNL/ whether BSNL was in loss mode and reasons thereof and 5) Why should Govt. of India bear responsibility for non-performance/ loss making of BSNL, 6) Status of Pension Revision in other PSUs, 7) Implications of 50% IDA Merger for MTNL Pensioners,  and 8)Also sought detailed justification from DoT along with the additional  grounds on which waiver is being sought now after  proposing/ moving Cabinet Note specifying  Pension Liability on part of BSNL  as determined earlier vide Cabinet Decision dated 27/1/2005.

During discussions it was pointed out by them that additional Pension liability imposed on BSNL by Dept. Of Expenditure/ COS/ Cabinet Decision dated 27/1/2005 was   in contravention of provisions made in Rule 37-A of CCS Pension Rules 1972 but Deptt. Of Expenditure viewed these provisions to be made in pursuance of Rule 37-A of CCS Pension Rules 1972,

Regarding loans extended by Govt. of India/ DoT  to BSNL,    no loan has been given to BSNL from DoT except the Notional/ hypothetical  loan of Rs. 7500/- Crores (Paper Loan only) against which BSNL has paid interest amount @ 14.5 % to DoT about Rs. 12,000/- Crores and refunded the hypothetical loan in cash after repeated requests to  DoT to free BSNL from the liability of hypothetical loan.

As per DoE, the 60% pension liability of BSNL Pensioners as per the existing provisions of January 2005 order should continue since DoT was run as a commercial organization and  all the assets of the then DoT/DTS/DTO were transferred to BSNL. However, in true sense, the liabilities of DoT  have been transferred to BSNL but the assets have not been transferred to BSNL. Many constraints were imposed upon BSNL, which hindered its financial viability and growth.

Regarding pension revision in other PSUs, it was pointed out that apart from BSNL and MTNL, IDA Pension was paid by Govt. to employees of Food and Civil Supplies Department absorbed in Food Corporation of India, and the same was being revised periodically. In other PSUs like Port Trust of India, and LIC etc. pension was being paid through TRUST and it was being revised periodically.

Regarding 50% IDA Merger for MTNL Pensioners, the issue has not arisen so far because this has not yet been extended to MTNL Employees. The case for MTNL Pensioners shall arise only after extending the benefit of 50% IDA Merger for MTNL Employees.

Detailed justification for 60:40 waiver of Pension liability is proving to be a  tough nut to crack, and the main justification with DoT lies in the fact that DoT has consistently maintained even under earlier Cabinet Note of 2004-05 that responsibility of Pension Payment under Rule 37-A lies with the Govt. of India and payment of Pension cannot be denied or held up due to financial status of BSNL.

01.10.20151ST OCTOBER – let us make a vow of building a TEAM for our BSNL


We, on behalf of AIBSNLEA MH Circle, and on my personal behalf, wish to all followers, fans, employees of BSNL, customers, business partners, channel partners, and all INDIANS A Very Happy BSNL DAY.


Comrades, let us make a vow of building a team for BSNL for the development, prosperity, and improve the Indian economy the digital India through BSNL.


TEAM means, TOGETHER EVERYONE ACHIEVES MORE., as per Mary. Lou Retton, the gold medal gymnastic in 1984 Olympics. Individuals score runs but teams wins game. The base route foundation of this team script is Positive believing. Everybody always speaks about positive thinking but this terminology of positive believing is beyond the positive thinking. Positive believing adds a new dimension which brings your heart in the picture, to give you the feelings and passion and that leads from changing the feelings of having a Job to Job’s having you. It means, developing of feelings of belongingness.


It is a practice to measure an IQ of individual while selecting the person to a job but in addition to it if we can access the EI, that is emotional intelligence, then it is an add on features. The EI brings energy, self control, discipline, and other success quality, and helps individual a much higher level of accomplishment. The most important thing of this EI is the coworkers immediately and instinctively picked up the pace; hence the value of the employee having more EI with IQ increases in company and goes beyond the extra- miler and personal productivity.


Far too many people have no idea about what they can do, as all of them were being told that what they cannot do. They do not know what they want as they were never been told, what is available for them. Let us take action the first step towards growth. Let us take a responsibility, of making BSNL to prosperand excel our best to keep BSNL flag high and high.

24.9.2015                                          CROCODILE TEARS


Comrades, we are very much thankful to BSNL corporate Office Pers. Cell for their kind consideration of the requests for retention/cancellation of transfers of executives of Maharashtra. Corporate Office is well aware of the facts, especially about administration of Maharashtra Circle, proved for its indifferent approach towards one executive Association, in dealing their HR Cases. by applying delay tactics, in forwarding their requests, to proper authorities for their settlements, and promptness in disposing the cases of  the other Association. Comrades, it is not the first time that corporate office has given retention/cancellation of transfer of executives of Maharashtra circle only. But also extend the benefit to other circles also depending on merit of the cases.  Case of Sholapur( transfer order to Asam pending from 2011)get cancelled recently, case from Pune, Transfer order to hard tenure (order pending since 2012) got change of station to WTR still kept pending up to midyear of June 15, Transfer order issued directly by corporate Office  in the cadre of DE to NGN Circle without comments of Circle. An ITS officer retention to Pune also been done by corporate office based on his request.


Maharashtra Circle is somewhat CHOOSEE extending the same kindness to the executives belonging to specific group, by not reliving them through ERP, ( extension for retention to an executive of architect wing by denying others) keeping and dropping names from long stay list, (CIRCLE OFFICE), Not issuing reliving order months together for the Executives in circle Office under Admin section dealing with L & B activities, to hard tenure, and issuing reliving order to Asam, of an executive from Satara within 15 days even knowing the fact that he is not in the first ten long stay list, changing of willingness at Circle level without recommendation of SSA head case of Nashik and getting order issued by passing waiting list to NGN section is also a  type of kindness already exhibited by Circle administration and it is witnessed by all comrades of Maharashtra in past. This is well known facts of Maharashtra Circle administration. Corporate Office knows about it from the litmus taste of ITPC Order (keeping Willingness  application months together without any action and comments)


In DE L/A order willingness was called from the eligible officers and an officer from Satara has given his willingness to Pune at own cost and his retention order was issued up to 31/03/16 that is more than 180 days. His juniors are doing L/A in DE cadre and there is no vacancy at Satara in DE cadre, hence as per rule the officer senior to them must get his L/A at Pune. It is not gimmick it is a right of an employee and it is bound duty of any service union, association is bound to see welfare of employee irrespective of its membership, that is why we do not raise objection in case of an officer of DGM level when he get back to Nashik prior to his completion of tenure. The said officer has came in the interest of service to circle office in the interest of service with TA/DA he has to return to BSNL for going back to Nashik.


Comrades, we should not make mockery if somebody requests for retention/cancellation to corporate office on genuine ground such as medical of its own or dependent family member for retention/cancellation of transfer from one place to another station.  We appeal to all comrades of Maharashtra BSNL, that AIBSNLEA is the only Association always take care of Members welfare and struggle for their rights.


So it is Better flatter a fool than fight him


BSNL Circle Office Mumbai After lapse of one month endorsed orders for retention of SDE under transfer to NETF Circle up to of 31/03/2016 at Satara in Maharashtra Circle.

22.9.2015    CS writes to CGM, MH Circle ---  It is very painful, and regrets to inform you about the anarchy, in Administration of Circle office dealing with HR section of Executives. It is very sorry to state you that in spite of several letters addressed to your good self, reciprocation is a big zero. Biased dealings in resolving HR issues, by Circle administration towards AIBSNLEA MH members has created and kindled the unrest in the minds of Oppressed executive fraternity, embezzlement of the records without prior approval, may lead towards the degenerating industrial harmony. Opacity, scantiness, biased approached towards the points raised by this Association is deprecatory to the glory earned through their disciplines by ancestor monarchs of Circle administration.    <<< Click for letter >>>

    AIBSNLEA is the only Association takes CARE of the employees of BSNL



READ the STORY How the BSNL Employee was kept in Dark regarding his/her right of Pension. WE have to vanquish the deceitful trick and find out the dark horse. Who is the back stabber?

Please go through the following details, think, and react. AIBSNLEA has strip away the shady move.


                    60:40 Pension sharing decision ---- Must be withdrawn


This decision is necessary for BSNL pensioners’ security on or before 01/10/2000

On revelation of the existence of the Cabinet Memo on 60:40 decision in 2005 itself, Com. AGS, AIRBSNLEWA,  Sh Amit Kumar Gupta submitted three RTI applications. Two application were addressed to Sh S L Meena, Director (Budget ) and one application was addressed to Sh Prachis Khanna, Director (Estt.) DOT asking documents related to such approval reply of which is awaited.


 SR NO 1                               <<Read the applications>> 


Documents as asked for has since been supplied by the Director (Budget), which reveals the unknown facts about the 60:40 pension sharing decision by the Cabinet in January 2005 itself. It may be recalled that through the earlier documents received through earlier RTI, it was understood that Cabinet approval on 60:40 was taken only in January 2011. 95 pages of documents received now, most of which are marked secret, are being placed below chronologically for information of all concerned. (Employees, Pensioners, Leaders of Union/Associations, BSNL management etc).

On 29-10-2004, DoT prepared a draft cabinet note for approval of the cabinet in which it was mentioned that the pension liability will be with Government and BSNL will pay the pension contribution as per FR 116. This cabinet note was strongly objected by Department of Expenditure (DOE). The note was placed before the cabinet on 24-11-2004, where it was not approved but decided to place the memo to the committee of secretaries (COS) and further examine the issue along with recommendation of COS.


      SR NO 2                        <<  Draft Cabinet Memo 24-10-2004>>


      SR NO 3                        << Annexure 1 to this memo>>


    Comprising the cabinet memo Dt 25-09-2000 regarding formation of BSNL.


     SR NO 4                                  << Annexure 2 >> 


   Approval of Cabinet dt 27-09-2000 to the memo dt 25-09-2000.


  SR NO 5                              << Annexure 3 >> 


Gazette notification of Rule 37A,Pension contribution rates and views of various departments.


  SR NO 6                              <<annexure 4 &5>>


Subsequently COS comprising secretaries of Telecom and Expenditure along with the Cabinet Secretary met on 14-12-2004 and decided to recommend 60:40 pension sharing system. 


 SR NO 7                        <<the minutes of the meeting>>   


Accordingly  the Cabinet note dated 14-1-2005 was prepared proposing the 60:40 pension sharing and the Cabinet  gave its approval on 27-1-2005. Read 


 SR NO 8                         <<the Cabinet Memo dated 14-1-2005>> 


Further the Deputy Secretary (Cabinet) wrote to DoT to supply them the orders in pursuance of the decision of the Cabinet. DoT complied and replied to them. Before that a meeting was held on 21-02-2005 between CMDs of BSNL & MTNL with Secy DoT and after that CMD BSNL wrote a DO to Secretary DoT on 24-02-2005 which was replied on 15-03-2005 Read carefully.


 SR NO 9                                       <<the related documents>>


On 15-06-2006, DoT for the first time made public the decision of 60:40 pension sharing but not mentioned that this was a decision of the cabinet. On which all Associations and Unions protested. The decision of DoT related to situation developed after 16-06-2006 is reflected in a 4 page document (note sheets). Report of the committee on issues raised by BSNL Union also may be read.


 SR NO 10                                 << referred documents>> 


Careful study of at least the main documents (excluding the annexure) uploaded will certainly reveal the seriousness of the situation. Viewers may read the documents and decide for themselves, whether the situation is such that the BSNL pensioners can sleep comfortably and there is no problem whatsoever on their pension????

05.9.2015                                        Rotten apple spoils the barrel

Comrades, It is very unfortunate, that when an authority plays a biased role and make discretion amongst the executive fraternity, by virtue of power conferred by the company to see the welfare of their assets, then only anarchy, chaos will be the result. Best example is DE L/A orders issued on 04/09/2015, one day prior to teacher’s day. Today is 5th September, Teachers Day. It is a right time and occasion to teach the lesson to so called, venerated Expert, Praveen, Guru sit in administration and disturbing the industrial harmony and peace.


Maharashtra Circle has shown  - 6.4% growth. If we introspect we could find that there is a huge unrest amongst the executives due to poor HR. When we tried to focus on it and try to bring these lacunas case by case administration says no individual cases please. The letter was mailed to me as CS AIBSNLEA and without observing the proper channel of communication and by an individual without any covering and approval of authority to do so.

                                           <<< CLICK FOR LETTER >>>


Comrades in recent DE L/A seniors are being deprived and too juniors are enjoying the DE L/A. It is a tradition of Circle Office to make injustice on eligible persons. Com Ladde, Com Dinkar, and so on submitted their willingness to Pune but their juniors were promoted at Pune locally, and seniors were being deprived in the name of saving of TA/DA or anything else?  This is against the rule. We expressed our resentment and the attitude to be punished. There are so many instances where administration has made blunders in dealing HR issues related with transfer and postings of executives. CS writes to CGMT to discuss all the issues.

Friends, being a holy month of SHRAVAN, it is a customary to tell a story to all members in a family, as the members can understand the moral of story, and develop their personality, approach, and a holistic change to see the things. We remember the story which I heard from my grandmother, which can be narrated as below.


In old days there was a state, (say Maharashtra) and for consecutive three years there was no rain. A famine occurred. Arduous situation, there was no food, no water. All the citizens went to the king for help. King was very Praveen, I mean expert, in handling such situation. He ordered all citizens has to give all the milk and pour it on idol of lord Shiva, and fill up the room by milk and pray the almighty for rain. All citizens follow the instructions but could not fill the room by milk. All citizens went home and collect all the milk and milk kept for kids also they took with themselves by keeping the children starving and pour it in Shivalaya. But Shivalaya remains half filled.  An old grandmother, after feeding to all her grandsons and granddaughters residual a cup of milk, she brought and pours in Shivalaya. Miracle happened. Shivalaya was flooded by milk. Rain started and everybody became happy.


Moral of story,” if you satisfy the family members on priority you will get the results” Maharashtra Circle has shown - 6.4% growth.


Think what is the reason?


Who is responsible?


What should be our course of action?


Who is rotten apple?


Ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

 Let us prevent it, with our Unity and struggle

Circle has been transferred to Gujarat Circle.  She was instrumental in implementing the ERP in the Circle inspite of many odds.  She was successful in implementing the software and settling the short coming in the system.  She during her period had proved herself as an efficient and strong officer not to bend upon any pressure tactics/black mailing / Zundashay.   She had taken many stern stands for the better financial growth of the Circle.  We take this opportunity to express our best wishes for her new assigned at Gujarat.

02.9.2015    Corporate Office called for vigilance report for the DPC of seniority quota. <<copy >>>>
02.9.2015    Comrades, it is the height of arrogance, and anarchy, chaos, to issue an extension to DE L/A order without time frame for second time. We have also cautioned for the first time but the adamant circle administration ignores the fact and second time circle office issued DE L/a on old seniority is nothing but is a contempt of court order. Circle secretary AIBSNLEA MH Circle repudiate the procrastination and express dissatisfaction towards linseed circle administration and dilly-dallying tactics in issuing DE L/A orders


Comrades, the circle office is pressing hard to SSA heads to relieve the executives whose orders were being issued long back and warned to adhere the instructions strictly.


Brothers and sisters and Friends, kindly recall the web updates of AIBSNLEA MH site some three months back in reference of ITPC issue. CS AIBSNLEA MH has written a letter to CGMT Maharashtra regarding relieving of executives to ITPC.


The stand taken by CGMT MH that, the orders were issued by CO New Delhi without taking consent of CGMT MH and acute shortage of executives cannot be made effective and will not be followed. The same thing is being reciprocated by SSA head now. CGM office should not feel bad as the precedence laid in ITPC issue,  is not to follow higher office order. We have already communicated to CGM and CMD BSNL also through our open letter, such type of incidence will happen in future and lead to chaos.


If we go through the mouth organs of all the associations,  It is experienced that, almost all the executives’ associations are complaining about the working of Staff and HR section of Circle office. In a mouth organ of an association habitual of calling executives by ill epithets as …… less, (shame, use, hope …etc) has also now complaining about the working of staff section at circle office. It means the either head of staff section, or all the executives working in staff section need to be changed. Charity begins at home. We request CGMT MH let us start the SWACHATA ABHIYAN from HR section at circle office.

01.9.2015   Comrades of Maharashtra, off late it is observed, by all the executive fraternity of BSNL Maharashtra circle, that always talking about others, with bad epithets, expressing others with ……..less. Here you can fill in the……with the words USE, HOPE, SHAME, CARE, SENSE, and publishing it on their own moth organ. It is a cheap type of journalism.


It is a well said, “When you exercise your freedom to express yourself at the lowest level, you ultimately condemn yourself to live at the level “


Freedom means exemption from power or control by another. You are free in our society to express our feelings in a  decent manner or free to indulge in criticizing with bad epithets, as CHAMACHA, BANGALI BABA, BLACK MAGIC to our own brothers and sisters in executive fraternity, especially about lady comrades, saying her as using muscle, wealth,  &  ….. , Power with name, practically comes under immoral behavior. Usage of such language becomes habit and then addiction, which means at that point you have given up your freedom and chosen slavery.


Always saying others …. Less, means other will also reciprocate it in same manner.


Comrades, please read out Para 11 f, of transfer policy, reproduced below


For considering executives for tenure posting on transfer, the executives with longest stay in a particular circle would be considered first.  Female executives would also be encouraged to serve in tenure postings. However, posting of unwilling female executives to hard tenure stations would be avoided. Due recognition to female executives, who have served in hard tenure locations, shall be given in their ACRs.


It is written in policy for an office record Unwillingness of Female candidates to be noted and may be excluded for posting in hard tenure. Every lady comrades of BSNL Maharashtra is known to the fact that unless and until, our sisters consents their willingness for hard tenure, it is next to impossible to consider their names for transfer to longest stay.


Kindly recall the stand taken by those about four years back about MTNL stay by the so called born leaders then you will realize their face.


Comrades at the time of absorption there were three choices to the executives working in BSNL/MTNL(derived from DOT )


1) BSNL with 37 a CCS, CCA pension rules with E1 + E2 /2= E1A pay scale to JTO and so on


2) MTNL with 37 pension & E2- JTO, E3- SDE (diff of pension rule)


3) DOT


Prior to 1/10/2000 those who have came from MTNL to BSNL or vice versa, the executives’ scales and pension rule were same.


Comrades changing of SSA  and getting posting at head office for Association is really a good thing but, to recoup the  loss in HRA (due to occupation of staff quarters) from Association, by making resolution passed in CEC by playing with sentiments of common members, can we say it as altruistic ?


Think who is selfish!!!!!!!

31.8.2015    Maharashtra BSNL, Circle office Mumbai, displayed the stay of executives in MTNL Mumbai for correction /omission /deletion for calculation of stay in MH circle after merging the stay in BSNL+ MTNL the list will be send to Corporate office for further disposal.


  <<<<< Click for list >>>>


Circle Secretary AIBSNLEA MH circle requests and appeal to CGMT MH Circle to make detailed enquiry through vigilance cell for colorful Pick and choose policy for getting transferred to NCNGN Circle, at Pune, deletion of name from waiting list of Pune, without approval and from authority and consent from individual, not following of procedures in maintain the waiting list, biased approach in resolving transfer cases, favoritism, ITPC issue, loss to the BSNL by delaying the reliving of executives to ITPC, in general the business and functioning of staff cell related with transfer and posting. Detailed letter follows.

29.8.2015    Circle Secretary Com. A G Joshi along with CHQ office Bearers of Maharashtra Com. C.M. Saste, OS (W), Com. K. P. Nair, AGS and Com. K A Mohire, Circle President and other CWC members attended the CWC meeting held on 25.8.2015 and 26.08.2015 at Kolkata.  A Joint Open Session of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA was held on 25.8.2015 wherein CMD BSNL, Director (CFA), BSNL, Sr. G.M. (SR), BSNL Corporate office were attended and addressed the session besides the CGMs and G.Ms stationed at Kolkata and other trader union / association leaders.

Com. A G Joshi addressed the CWC and presented the report of the Circle.  He being the Vice President, CHQ has also presided over the CWC during the absence of President.

Com. C.M. Saste presented the report on the organisational matters of CHQ and Com. K.P. Nair presented the report on the pending issues of the PA /PS cadre, its status and steps taken by the CHQ.  He has assured to look into the case of recent clarification order of PA/PS cadre issued by the corporate office.

20.8.2015      Comrades, An officer whose transfer order is issued from MH Circle to NCNGN on 17/8/15 has applied to RTTC Pune, and his application is forwarded by GM Nashik with substitute to CO Mumbai for RTTC Pune.


Based on his request in month of August 14 his waiting list was taken at sr no 5 to Pune in a register of waiting list with in Maharashtra, and then conveniently shifted for deputation to NCNGN without mentioning his request to RTTC Pune by the AD staff B at CO Mumbai. The chain of proposal is as below


SDE staff B--- AGM staff---direct Add GM HR--- Sr GM HR/A and discussed this issue with CGM over phone (who is on tour to Amaravati) on 30/9/14. All this file movement is within ONE DAY ONLY that is on 30/9/14 what a prompt action!!! If such type of action if it is initiated then  ACCHE DIN …..HAi. Interesting fact is that in above chain DGM staff was dropped as may be ODD MAN OUT.


4) As per the guide lines over deputation without TA /DA, the order must be for specific days, but here there is no mention of specific period.


5) Name of Shri Gaikar was deleted from the waiting list to Pune by AD staff B without approval of competent authority. Shri Gaikar has applied for Pune in the month of April 14 and his name was not in first 100 top long stay list, and even though he was transferred to Jalgaon in one to one transfer against the court decision.


6) Changing the willingness from RTTC to NCNGN in file and processing of file on that matter leads to the suspect about the creditability and trustworthiness and transparency in the minds of executives, about working of circle administration. We feel all these acts are time extravagance and making unbounded loss and detrimental, pernicious to the development of bond between administrations and executives as well as to the growth of BSNL


We demand a detailed administrative/ Vigilance Inquiry as deems fit to be initiated

17.8.2015      Necromancy  …. Leading towards anarchy……..


Comrades, since last week C S AIBSNLEA MH and Com Saste C M OS (W) were camped at AIBSNLEA HQ at Delhi, for Association work. Since long back we were in forage for the character who was made famous in a series of daily soap episodes over the ITPC issue, retention issue of executives at Pune, having epithet as CHAMACHA, muscle / money power giant, as a black magician,….baba, messiah who keeps the capacity to change the orders, and go on the rampage in so called smooth functioning of Maharashtra BSNL Circle administration as per the script written and published in the mouth organ of the association. We could not find such personality at Delhi, but let me tell you we feel, the existence of that personality at BSNL Maharashtra Circle, doing all such activities, behind the curtain. It is a well known proverb when we are pointing towards others three fingers pointing towards us


Comrade, take the ITPC Case


1)  Corporate office called willingness from the Executives to work at ITPC Pune   and asked to send on the corporate office mail id


2)  Corporate office called the remarks from CGMT MH and CGM ITPC on the received willingness request.


3)  CGM ITPC after going through the list submitted by corporate office with remarks and recommendation sent to corporate office for further disposal within stipulated period.


4)  CGMT MH circle could not find time may be due to busy schedule even after three reminders from corporate office not sent the list with remarks to corporate office


5) ITPC was paying rupees one lack per outsourced person for twelve person amounting twelve lack per month for getting their work done, hence to save such an big amount, ITPC was being in badly need of BSNL executives.


6)  Corporate Office issued transfer orders for 12 executives, to ITPC Pune.


Comrade here the conceit sprouted. Here first time we experienced the presence conjurer with magic wand. Necromancy starts working.


7) Questions were raised about the correctness of list, its authenticity, and story of shortage of executives take the shape and lead the situation in a very entertaining manner, columns to columns, and pages to pages.


8) CGMT MH Circle administration called options from executives for ITPC by their own separately under the influence of ……Baba (Praveen, I mean, Expert and well conversant in transfer and posting) available here itself. The basic condition was that all applications must be through proper channel.


Comrade, see the fun, as per the information received under RTI Act, more than 20 and odd applications received at circle office, out of that 9 applications were shortlisted as per N/S 3 without file number dated 31/3/15. The short listing was done as per the criteria mentioned below


Less than 15 years of service (conveniently SSA or MH circle not mentioned)


Having knowledge of computer etc (etc means what?) please understand.


Name of Officer is not figure in top 5of long stay of SSA/Circle


Another remark in note sheet that one per SSA executive was recommended up to DGM(HR) and at The above level one Name of Shri Bavaskar from Pune TD which is at serial No 1 was deleted and  name of shri Manish bhatnagar at serial no 5 being working at tenure station hence dropped and at serial no 7 the name of Shri Sakharekar was barred as working in Pune mobile and at serial no 9 the name of Shri. Degaovkar was also dropped as he is working in Pune mobile and the in between name of Shri Fernandez at serial no 8 was included by the authority by passing the Sr No1, 5 and 7  all this process is available at 4/c


Please think Comrades


All above applications were not forwarded through proper channel and only one application of Shri Thorat from Jalgaon was forwarded that also through proper substitute.


The order issued by corporate office for 12 executives was sent back to corporate by MH circle on the plea of shortage and their application were not being sent through proper channel. Here exactly 180 degree U turns even though the applications are not through proper channel their names were also been sent to corporate office for issue of the order. The oral approval of CGMT MH was taken by Circle office for sending the names to corporate office, as CGMT MH was on tour to Amaravati and covering approval was taken as the same as replica for reliving of SDE to ITPC in the last December 14 and by sms. This SMS funda was nomenclature as chamachegiri in that publication of the other Association mouth organ then what is the nomenclature we should name for this act?


 So another contradiction in this note sheet is that this is linked up with letters of corporate office received for the first order of 12 executives and say of MH circle as acute shortage of executives in response to these letters.


Keeping this process lingering for near about 8/9 months the ITPC Pune has no any alternative to keep their work on outsourcing and incurring expenditure to the tune of 1 CRORE. It is nothing but a loss to the BSNL


Think Comrades.


Comrades, if we see it is very difficult task to get the requested SSA /Station in time, but an interesting story in case of a SDE who is custodian of an Associations’ constitution requested in the month of August 14 from a station to RTTC Pune, (after Com Gaikar Bhausaheb SDE application to Pune.)  SSA head forwarded with substitute the application of the chief custodian to circle office. It was quite natural to get Pune was a difficult job, the messiah a character,  as made famous by in the story, who used to use a colorful use of chair and exhibits the magic wand wizard and willingness converted from RTTC to NCNGN Circle and deleting the name of Gaikar and issuing deputation order without calling volunteers and today his order is issued to NCNGN Circle by corporate office neglecting deleting in un authorize way the Gaikar request for medical treatment of his Sun at Pune. We demand a detailed departmental/vigilance inquiry as deems fit.

17.8.2015 BSNL Corporate Office SEA section of Finance wing has called detailed information and stay particulars of STS and JAG level staff details in excel sheet for administrative reasons

11.8.2015  Comrades see the contradiction in the stand taken by circle administration in the issue of calling options for DE L/A and the calling options for ITPC by corporate. Circle office is very much PRAVEEN,  I mean expert in changing their stand as per situation and as per their whims and fancy.


For ITPC issue Circle administration pleaded with corporate office, and taken a stiff stand that these willingness were  called by corporate office directly without circle office consent and now for calling DE L/A circle office change their stand in 180 degree and well defined tested operated in past Praveen (expert) theory of GHUM JAAO again adopted and now without consent of SSA head CO Mumbai also called options from executives directly on email id.


What will be the situation if any SSA head took the stand that these willingness are not submitted through me hence I will not relieve these executive to other SSA, just imagine, it will lead to anarchy in the Circle Organisation BSNL.   <<CLICK HERE FOR LIST OF EXECUTIVES >>

3.8.2015 Parliamentary panel pitches for regulations for mobile towers

By PTI | 2 Aug, 2015, 11.25AM IST


NEW DELHI: Observing that Indians are more "vulnerable and prone" to Electro-magnetic Radiation than Europeans, a Parliamentary panel has recommended the need for a comprehensive study to establish risk levels and adverse health effects of EMR from cell phone towers. 

A department-related Parliamentary standing committee on Science and Technology and 
Environment and Forests has urged the Department of Telecommunications to consider framing suitable regulations regarding the location and inspection of mobile towers. The committee also took note of the various reports and studies and felt that unrestricted setting up of mobile towers and antennas in cities and smaller towns resulted in a "concentrated" effect. "The committee recommends that the department of telecommunications consider framing suitable regulations and guidelines regarding the location and inspection of mobile towers," the committee chaired by former Union Minister Ashwani Kumar said in its report. It also said the number of qualified inspectors to carry out inspections to check the effects of EMR from cell towers should be increased."The committee is aware that Indians are more vulnerable and prone to risk from radiation as compared to European countries because of their low body mass index and low fat content. "The committee recommends that comprehensive scientific studies need to be undertaken to conclusively establish the level of risk and adverse health effects of EMR of cell towers," it said.

It said the committee currently working on the issue be directed to expedite its report which should be given within a stipulated time frame. The panel also said the recommendations of the expert committee constituted to study the impact of mobile towers on birds and bees should be implemented so that the harmful effects of EMR on birds, bees, insects and others may be minimized. The committee took note of the supervision by Telecom Enforcement Resource and Monitoring (TERM) cells to ensure compliance of Base Transceiver Station (BTS) guidelines. "The committee recommends that apart from self-certification, random checking and inspection reports should be made public so that public at large is aware of the issue. “Stringent penalties for violation of norms and guidelines be prescribed and these should go beyond fiscal penalties," the committee said. The committee observed that the effects of electromagnetic radiation on health of human beings, animals, birds, honeybees through radiation from mobile phone towers is a matter of concern and intense public discourse. The committee feels that the issues arising there from needed to be "flagged".
