12.10.2017 Update on BSNL Board meeting held on 12.10.2017

BSNL Board Meeting held today as per the schedule wherein the implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL was one of the agenda item. It is understood that 3rd PRC report was discussed for one hour. Addl. Secretary (T), DoT, the Govt. nominee in the Board however, did not agree to discuss the agenda since sufficient time is not given to study the agenda.

So the matter is postponed to be discussed in the next Board meeting scheduled to be held after Diwali tentatively 23rd or 24th October 2017. It seems that Addl. Secretary (T), DoT, the Govt. nominee in the Board is not in the favour of implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL.

In view of that all the BSNL Unions and Associations should mobilize the organization action programs to impress upon the Govt. for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL. All the Circle Secretaries / District Secretaries are requested to ensure 100% participation in the proposed agitation programmes of All Union & Associations of BSNL.

Meeting with DGM FC

 

CS along with ACS, DS Mumbai and OS Mumbai branch met DGM FC MH Circle at Mumbai CO office and discussed regarding Finance executive issues. The following issues were discussed reg   Finance executives pending request transfers and posting.

 

 At the outset we gave her warm wishes from AIBSNLEA MH for assuming the charge of DGM FC  for the first time. Her expertise is in dealing with files and the external, statutory audit successfully since last 3-4 years now she has entered in the ERA of dealing with Human resources, their feelings, requests, and their grievances and we are sure that she will handle and prove herself a good HR personal.

Near about 20 cases are pending at co office Mumbai since March 17 who has completed their tenure at different stations. Some cases of retention on humanity, medical dependant ground was also discussed. Some cases of change of stations on education ground of wards and on medical ground of spouse was also discussed with her in detail.

 DGM FC has given patient hearing to the grievances of Finance executives communicated by us to her and assured to look into.  She requested us to giver three weeks time to make the Data updated about stay of each and every executive to display on intranet for open communication to all and correction there off if any for keeping the transparency. We appreciate her concern.

We also suggested regarding declaration of tenure stations in Finance wing and declaration of some unpopular stations in addition to tenure stations for getting Finance executives to these stations also with assurance of 2 years break.

We express our resentment towards the recent criteria of performance attached with request transfers and for issuing looking after promotion orders other than specified by corporate office.

We also communicated the feelings of all IFAs regarding the recent circular about the execution of audit by IFAs only. We have given ample examples of difficulties and prediction of the practical difficulties in carrying out the audits at CO Mumbai office by calling IFAs only. We have given an example of Karnataka Circle audit pattern. In Karnataka Circle the audit party will be at CO office and on line they will fetch the data from system and where they found discrepancy or any clarification the audit party will take the SSA team on line get clarification from concern.The same pattern we demanded for MH circle also.

He informed that out of 18000 and plus account holders of MH and and more than 6000 and odd members of WTP,WTR, GUJARAT, CHATTISGARH and other west zone circles are GPF members and only 3-4 executives are handling this issue.MH circle has already handed over the list in the month of August 17 CCA office checked the list and found 600 and plus cases are  mismatching So the CCA revert the list to MH Circle .Only two days back the corrected list in the requisite Performa  was sent to Pr CCA office by MH circle . Now CCA office  is checking the list and the exact checking and discrepancies if any will be communicated to MH BSNL up to Thursday. Required fund is 1600 crores for DEEEPAWALI FESTIVAL withdrawal /advances . It is next to impossible to disburse the amount to the employees prior to deepawali.

Hence we communicated all the information and we request GM (F) Shri Mahawar Sir who is at CO New Delhi to ask one time settlement request as a special case to allot special allotment for MH circle to disburse the GPF amount to their stake holders prior to DEEPAWALI to the BSNL management and Dir HR and CMD. He assured to look into. We AIBSNLEA and BSNLEU will also persue at CO Delhi through our CHQ for early settlement of the issue.

Vishist Seva Padak prize distribution ceremony

 CS attended the Vishist Seva Padak prize distribution ceremony and congratulated all prize winners and pointed out that admin has insulted executives whose names were declared in 2015 as prize winners and after laps of one year their names were dropped This is injustice and detailed probe in this is requested by CS AIBSNLEA

 

07.10.2017

All the past penance of our electrical executives is at stake. Every body of us have witnessed as the executives in electrical wing worked as ascetic for growth of BSNL. Off late it is observed especially in Electrical wing that a practice is being adopted since decades by the chief office to give additional charge of SDE (E) to JTO(E) without observing the DPC guidelines, Circle seniority, Roaster and the additional charge is in addition to his regular charge of JTO. A JTO (E) is holding both the charge of JTO and SDE simultaneously years together continuously without break. The Chief office of Electrical wing itself seems to be violating the guidelines and principles of Promotion Policy in BSNL and our JTOs and SDEs are suffering and becoming scapegoat of such situations.

    CS writes to Chief Engineer (Electrical) O/O CGMT Maharashtra Circle.

It was informed by AIBSNLEA that  in accounts wing transfer  orders cannot be   scheduled  on 31st march like technical wing . Due to audit work which  extends to  2 months  execution/implementation of order get delayed . hence orders need to be issued on periodic basis .

This KPIs will be  disclosed first and suggestions of associations will be  taken on this. DGM FC will be issuing KPIs in this regards.

29.09.2017 CMD BSNL meeting with BSNL Unions and Associations Core Group:

GS along with GS of BSNLEU, GS NFTE and GS SNEA has attended the meeting convened by CMD BSNL today at 1530 hrs to discuss the present condition of BSNL.

 

CMD apprised about the Indian Mobile congress (IMC) on 25-26 September 2017 at Pragati Maidan wherein many private operators CEOs visited BSNL Stall and commented  by  Shri Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance industries that  himself said that BSNL is  standing in the competition in comparison to other operators. Best stall there is of BSNL.

 

Current market scenario CMD informed that positive side for BSNL is that the market share of BSNL has increased from 8.6 in March,2017 to 8.84 in July 2017 in mobile segment despite of  tough competition. Media has also reported that BSNL has challenge the Reliance Jio in the ongoing tariff war. Whole credit goes to the BSNL employees and we are proud of it.

 

However BSNL has suffered on financial front. Revenue in July impacted huge due to GST implementation. But with the sincere and dedicated efforts of the BSNL Finance wing officers in BSNL CO and IFA sin field units met the challenge and could resolve the problems immediately. In the month of Aug the realisation was 98.9% and in September till date 55%.  Due to this cash crunch in the month of July the salary was disbursed on OD.

 

Earlier IUC charges benchmark was 0.14 paisa which is now reduce to 0.6 paisa. In our opinion it should be minimum 0.22 paisa.

 

Now BSNL has to launch aggressive tariffs in view of this BSNL in collaboration with micromax is launching bundled feature phone having smartphone features on the price of Rs 2,200 and Rupees 97 sim with unlimited voice and Data. It will be matching brand with Jio. This product will save customers in rural and medium class. BSNL is subsidising Rs 1200 out of 2200 and this product will be named Bharat-1.

 

BSNL has also tied up with Vodafone on prepaid service for free roaming  now customer of BSNL may roam on Vodafone network freely . post-paid will also take place soon.

 

Recently BSNL has received Rs 1500 crores from NFS amount which will help immediately.

 

Mobile phase –VIII PO s have been placed in North south and West zone . In east zone PO will be placed shortly.

 

BSNL is earning around 12000 crores revenue per annum from CFA business. Hence its own strategies are different than other operators. As About Rs 16000 crore on salary payment alone .Wi-Fi, landline and Wi-Fi integrated to mobile network are being provided by BSNL only. Landline broadband it is giving good revenue through NGN wireless services, Wi-Fi services holds on the broadband market. Further any suggestion may be given by unions and association within one week time in this regard.

 

BSNL has also applied for 4G spectrum allocation (2100 MHz band) which will cater 3G also. The spectrum charges will be paid on yearly basis up to ten years. 2G phase VIII order need to be reviewed.

 

Regarding Core network, OTN phase-I and phase-II has come. PGCIL connectivity also effective.

 

3rd PRC implementation in BSNL with 15 % fitment benefit: CMD informed that BSNL MC has approved the 3rd PRC report with 15% fitment benefit and it has been sent to DOT for clearance. Simultaneously it will be placed in the next Board meeting for approval shortly. He further mentioned that Secretary Telecom also commented that BSNL deserves for 3rd PRC implementation and she will meet Hon’ble MOSC(I/C) along with CMD BSNL in the next week to get his consent. He also mentioned that Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) wants to implement 3rd PRC in BSNL from his core of heart.

 

Creation of tower subsidiary:

CMD mentioned that after creation of tower subsidiary immediately BSNL will get 8% tax saving benefit and tower subsidiary may help in giving more revenue to BSNL. The depreciation amount of BSNL will reduce about 1500 crores. BSNL will be giving initially Rs 7000 crores notional loan to tower subsidiary against which it will get interest.

 

As per our opinion the negative side is to pay rent to tower subsidiary for hiring towers. And the strategic  business partner induction may pave the way for its complete disinvestment and privatisation. CMD commented that in his opinion for next ten year it is not visible.

 

On the issue of PLI payment this year CMD assured to look into.

 

We also discussed our "Candle Light March" also with CMD.

 

After detailed discussions meeting ended at 1745 hrs.
