CMD BSNL Likely to get nod
soon to run MTNL’s mobile services
will provide managed services to MTNL, which includes, telecom equipment
procurement and maintenance, technology and business advisory services.
Bharat Sanchar Nigam
Ltd. (BSNL) expects a go-ahead shortly from the telecom department to
manage the mobile services operations offered by Mahanagar Telephone
Nigam Ltd. (MTNL) to bring a deeper synergies between the two state-run
telcos. BSNL will provide managed services to MTNL that include telecom
equipment procurement and maintenance, technology and business advisory
services. "Telecom department is considering to bring mobile business of
BSNL and MTNL together in an effort to bring synergy between the two
companies," Shrivastava told ET, adding that the decision is likely to
come soon. The matter has been hanging fire since 2012, and was
originally a part of a UPA- II proposal aimed to bring operational
coherence between the two financially struggling telcos to principally
help MTNL, which operates in Delhi and Mumbai, to overcome market
challenges and turn around its consumer mobile business. BSNL operates
in the rest of India's 22 circles. For the fiscal ended March 31, 2016,
MTNL reported a net loss of Rs 2012.24 crore which includes a loss of
nearly Rs 1,800 crore on account of mobile services alone. Both, BSNL
and MTNL had entered into a strategic agreement in September 2013 and
are currently working together to tap enterprise businesses, including
leased lines, which according to them is performing well. NEWS SITES
Sign in/Sign up 08 June 2016, 3:10 PM IST A lot of discussions have
already taken place, and in order to leverage each other, the government
is considering bringing mobile services together in a way that BSNL
would run MTNL's network, as the latter's network is old and the PSU is
not able to invest anymore, Shrivastava added. MTNL, unlike BSNL and
other private sector operators, won't be able to offer fourthgeneration
or 4G LTE-based services to subscribers anytime soon as the company does
not have liberalized spectrum and its licenses are expiring in 2017.
Telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, while presenting the department's
score card, recently said that the government was aggressively working
to create a synergy between the two public sector companies with an aim
to turnaround MTNL's mobile business. The government-owned telco still
relies heavily on its wire line business which constitutes nearly 80% of
its overall revenues and operates 2,000 mobile tower sites in the two

United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA Meeting with Director (HR)
held a meeting with the representatives of United Forum of AIBSNLEA &
AIGETOA in response to the agitation call and to discuss the demands.
GS, FS and President, OS, AIGETOA with some other office bearers
attended the meeting. From management side GM (Pers), GM (SR), Addl. GM
(SR), Jt. GM(Pers), DGM (Estt) and OSD to Director (HR) were present.
Director (HR) welcomed all the representatives and explained that BSNL
has done well in this financial year with the support and involvement of
all the employees and now any agitation may hamper the growth of BSNL.
Management is trying to resolve the demands raised by the United Forum
but it needs time to understand and decide the issues. We extended
thanks to Director (HR) for arranging a meeting to discuss our demands
and mentioned that we are also equally concern for the viability of BSNL
but our long pending genuine HR issues needs resolution. Hereafter the
discussion on demands took place as follows:
Immediate implementation of the
recommendation of the committee headed by Sh. M. A. Khan, ED (NB) on
standard E2 & E3 scales for JTO & SDE Equivalent executives.
after detail discussions mentioned that Management has decided to
communicate the administrative decision to implement the recommendation
of the Committee headed by Sh. M.A. Khan, ED(NB) on Standard E-2 and
E-3 Pay Scales for JTO & SDE equivalent executives. She further
informed that anomalies if any shall be dealt separately but as of now
management is moving ahead with replacement of scales as demanded by
United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA. We told that we expect a positive
outcome on the issue when all the stake holders have agreed in unison
for replacing the scales.
Implementation of Khan Committee
recommendations on CPSU Hierarchy:
informed that Personnel cell is seeking two months’ time to implement
the same which was out rightly rejected by us. We told that already
several timelines have been given in past and even in the CMD BSNL
meeting held on 14.12.2015. It was assured by CMD BSNL to implement Khan
Committee report on both the above issues i.e. standard E2 & E3 scales
for JTO & SDE Equivalent executives & CPSU Hierarchy before 26thJan-2016
but none has been honoured even after lapse of five months period. So we
require now orders and not mere assurances as our people are not willing
to wait anymore. We told them nothing is impossible and if personnel
section makes some extra effort, final resolution requires just one/two
weeks’ time. Director (HR) told that she will arrange to convey
administrative approval in principle for the implementation of Khan
Committee Recommendations in regard to CPSU Hierarchy. We informed
Director (HR) that till orders are issued, we will continue with our
organizational action program. Director (HR) assured to come up with
concrete action plan after discussing it further with HR team.
3 Scrapping of MT RRs:
Though GM (Pers)
emphasized that there is need for Management Trainee in BSNL for
specialized works like sales, marketing, EB, Legal as fresh talent is
required there. We once again emphasized that any recruitment of the
Fresher above JTO/JAO level is not acceptable to us. We said if BSNL is
in such dire need, why don’t they recruit the specialized cadres (like
sales, marketing etc) at the same level at which JTOs/JAOs are
recruited. Director (HR) said that she has been given an impression
that we won’t allow such recruitment even at the level of JTO/JAO. We
said that our demand is that there should not be entry of fresher’s at
level higher to JTO/JAO and our entry is what in other PSUs are called
Executive/Management Trainees. Director (HR) told that when head of the
organization has committed for scrapping current MT RRs, there is no
issue as such in doing that. She told that she shall be conveying the
same to CMD and in all probabilities, current MT RRs will be scrapped
and instead the process for recruiting specialized trainees (Sales,
Marketing, Legal, EB etc.) at the level of JTO/JAO shall be processed.
She agreed to come up on the same after discussions with HR team.
4 Scrapping of DGM RRs:
It was agreed
by management but they said that we should allow at least current
process. We categorically stated that this is not acceptable to us.
Director (HR) told us to submit a letter in this regard so that the same
can be examined to take a conclusive decision.
5 Extending 30% Superannuation to Direct Recruits
(HR) told us that 3 percent contribution has been agreed by the BSNL
Board. She told that putting the system in place was first need and that
has been done. In the decision, scope is there for revisiting the
quantum after actuarial analysis and annually also and revision of date
of implementation as demanded by AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA. She said that it
took a herculean effort from her side to get even 3 percent approved. We
thanked Director (HR) for the efforts but conveyed categorically to her
that 30 percent is our rightful due and we will keep on our fight till
it is enhanced further as committed at different platforms or till BSNL
informs us about the fund in which 13.8 percent is going towards post
retrial medical benefits.
6 LDCE results:
for appointing a senior lawyer for pursuing the case at Chandigarh CAT
which was agreed to by Management. We further requested Personnel wing
that for the want of reply from BSNL side, the cases should not be held
up and accordingly timely replies should be submitted. We further told
that now the results can be declared as courts has granted permission
for the same. Personnel cell asked us to give the copy of judgement. We
have given them the copy of judgment which shall be examined by the
7 Pay losses to JTOs/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 and fixation of pay
in respect of departmental outsider (TTAs) appointed after 01.01.2007:
As regard to
outsider (TTAs) case is concerned, it was informed that same cannot be
agreed upon. We told that there are compulsive grounds which has been
overlooked by Establishment cell like a TTA of the same batch or may be
junior promoted after these JTOs through LICE is getting more pay than
the JTO recruited through Direct Quota. Director (HR) expressed her
surprise that why these factors does not come up in front of officers
dealing with it. She told us to represent afresh with all the relevant
facts. Regarding Pay loss, time line will be intimated to us after
consulting with HR team.
8 Rule-8 Cases:
Time line of
the resolution will be intimated to us in one week.
9 Resolution of various other long pending HR issues like taking urgent
necessary action for:
conduction of various CPCs in all the disciplines to fill up the vacant
group-A and Group B equivalent posts in a time bound manner:
our serious concern against non-conduction of CPCs from JTO to SDE (T),
SDE (T) to DE, DE to DGM, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, CAO to DGM(F), JTO
(C/E) to SDE(C/E) , SDE(C/E) to EE(C/E), EE(C/E) to SE(C/E) JTO (TF) to
SDE(TF), SDE (TF) to AGM(TF), AGM(TF) to DGM(TF) on the pretext of some
pending Court cases etc. GM (Pers.) informed that in JTO (T) to SDE (T)
promotion court case in the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala, a senior
Advocate Sh. R.D. Aggrawala has been appointed to plead the case in the
next hearing in May- 2016 to get the stay order vacated.
SDE to DE and
AO to CAO Court case in the Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh the reply has been
filed and case will be heard on 18-5-2016. Thereafter only writ
petition may be filed in the Hon’ble High Court of Chandigarh.
B Notional pay
fixation of all upgraded pay-scales w.e.f. 01.10.2000:
our serious resentment and non-resolution of this long pending issue due
to the indifferent approach of Est. Cell. Director (HR) directed DGM (Estt)
to put up the case immediately. She assured to further discuss the
matter with the Association.
C One time
relaxation to Steno Grade-III for their promotion to PA cadre:
Matter will be
further discussed with HR team separately.
D Settlement of
Pay anomaly cases where junior executives are drawing more pay than
Jt. GM (Pers)
informed that required information have been received from the circles
an shortly will be discussed in the committee of GMs. We resented
against the abnormal delay. Director (HR) directed GM (Pers) to take an
early action in this regard.
E Diversion of
50% MT quota CAO posts to seniority quota:
informed that the matter has to be discussed in the BSNL Board. We
demanded it to withdraw from the agenda of BSNL Board meetings and to

United Forum of BSNL
Executives’ Associations comprising AIBSNLEA AND AIGETOA served
agitation notice against breach of commitment and assurances given by
In spite of BSNL
Management’s firm commitment and assurance given vide letter No. BSNL/7-3/SR/2015
dated 14.12.2015, BSNL Management has not taken any concrete action for
settlement of the long pending genuine demands, United Forum of AIBSNLEA
& AIGETOA had several informal and formal meetings with the GM (Pers.),
GM (Estt), Director (HR) and CMD BSNL but the issues could not be
resolved due to the total negative attitude of the Establishment and
Pers. Cell of BSNL CO. In all the meetings CMD BSNL and Director (HR)
have appreciated our concern and assured positive action but due to the
negative approach of Estt. and Pers. Cell, majority of the issues could
not be resolved. Recently on 26.4.2016 in the meeting held with
Director (HR) it was pleaded by all the Executive Associations to
implement Khan Committee report first by replacing E1 A by E2 and E2 A
by E3 IDA Pay sales which was appreciated by Director (HR) but the GM (Estt)
continued to plead that before implementation of Khan Committee report
on E2 and E3 IDA Pay scales, it should be ensured that one SDE
equivalent executive having E3 Pay scales will get his next financial up
gradation as Sr. SDE in the same pay sale of E3 only. Which AIBSNLEA and
AIGETOA strongly protested and categorically demanded the next
subsequent time bound promotion in the higher grade E4 should be there
only as per the provisions of EPP wherein it is clearly envisaged that
“first time bound financial up gradation during 4-6 years and subsequent
time bound financial up gradations after every 5 years only”. Hence,
after E3 pay scale the next time bound up gradation after 5 years should
be there in the higher pay scale of E4 only. We can’t accept E3 scale
for 10 years for SDE and Sr. SDE without any pay fixation benefit.
Whereas, our sister Association told that they will be happy in case (SDE)
E3 to (Sr. SDE) E4 up gradation is given after 5 years otherwise they
will also be happy to have E3 IDA Pay scale for SDE and Sr. SDE. This
approach is strengthening the pleading of GM (Estt) which will finally
put executives in loss.
Similarly, CPSU cadre
hierarchy implementation is being dragged by Pers. Cell on the pretext
of MT recruitment and on that basis they are framing a Promotion Policy
which is against the recommendations of Khan Committee. The MT
recruitment is being supported by our sister Association which is also
strengthening the views of Pers. Cell and will finally block the carrier
progression of BSNL’s young executives in the same manner which we
seniors have suffered in DOT due to JTS recruitment rules wherein a JTO
use to retire as Adhoc DE only.
Hence, accepting E3 scale
for SDE and Sr. SDE will put one executive in one scale E3 for 10 years
contrary to the provisions of EPP and it will effect 3rd PRC
implementation also. Our sister Association should understand that
instead of strengthening the pleadings of Estt. Cell and Pers. Cell,
they should safeguard the interest of executives in true sense. Their
efforts in the past also were always to derail the process by giving
agitation call on vital issues and withdrawing without any concrete
results. In real sense they are playing with the future of young JTOs/JAOs
by putting them in E3 scale for 10 years and introducing MT in DE
grade. Majority of young executives of all disciplines belongs to
AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA and they have full trust and confidence in these
associations. In true sense these Associations are only safeguarding
the interest of all executives of BSNL.
United Forum has demanded
each financial up gradation on completion of 5 years of service in each
grade as recommended by Khan Committee i.e. E2->E3->E4->E5->E6->E7 etc.
The Sr. SDE grade is a non-functional grade which comes in between SDE
and DE promotions. In case the Sr. SDE non-functional grade is
abolished it will give faster functional promotion to (JTO) E2 à (SDE)
E3à (DE) E4 within 10 years of service which otherwise one executives is
getting after 15 years. Earlier days at the time of formation of BSNL in
DOT set up Sr. SDE/Sr. AO were the functional grades and in BSNL also
before implementation of EPP the Sr. SDE designation was given but after
the EPP implementation the Sr. SDE designation on time bound promotion
in E3 grade is not given. Hence, in case the non-functional grade of
Sr. SDE is abolished it will pave the fast track promotion to young
executives. In case, if it continues to exist, in that situation all
time bound promotions should be available after each 5 years in the
scales E2 to E3, E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7.
If the Khan Committee
recommendations are implemented in its true spirit, the pay protection
has to be given to all the seniors who have already been given the time
bound and post based promotion at the time of replacement of E1 A by E2,
E2A by E3 IDA pay scales w.e.f. 1.1.2007. Some cascading effect will
always be there but does not mean that executives should be deprived
from their legitimate Pay scales.
The 30% superannuation
benefit has to be implemented with minimum contribution of 6% from
employer instead of 3% as assured by BSNL management on earlier
meetings. Resolution of the following other long pending HR issues
needs urgent necessary action for:
conduction of various CPCs in all the disciplines to fill up the vacant
group-A and Group B equivalent posts in a time bound manner, notional
pay fixation of all upgraded pay-scales w.e.f. 01.10.2000, one time
relaxation to Steno Grade-III for their promotion to PA cadre,
settlement of Pay Anomaly cases where junior executives are drawing more
pay than senior executives, special recruitment drive for hard
tenure/shortfall circles, FR 22(I)a(i) pay fixation to officiating JTOs,
restructuring of AD (OL) cadres, finalization of new SDE RR 2014 in line
with association suggestions, Diversion of 50% MT quota CAO Posts to the
Seniority Quota etc.
of LDCE results, Settlement of Rule-8 transfer cases, Pay loss to JTOs/JAOs
recruited after 01.01.2007 and fixation of pay in respect of
departmental outsider (TTA) appointed as JTOs, extension of E1+ 5
advance increment benefits to JTO (SRD)/JAO 2013 batch and PA Cadre and
other long pending HR issues submitted earlier.
AIBSNLEA has been demanding
immediate conduction of Membership verification but due to Hon’ble High
Court Karnataka stay order it is delayed. However, AIBSNLEA is ready to
face referendum at any point of time.
All these issues needs
immediate settlement as assured by BSNL management on the earlier
Let us, implement the
agitation call with its full strength, defeat the ulterior motives of
the vested interests and to get resolve the long pending issues for the
betterment of BSNL executives.

CO Mumbai issued revised posting order of newly promoted adhoc DGM
A regular DE of Sangli SSA was transferred and posted as DGM Adhoc at
Kolhapur. AIBSNLEA pointed out to circle administration that the officer
is senior and his junior is posted at Sangli so it is against the
policy. Both these officers are left with only 9 months of service. We
request BSNL CO Mumbai that for nine months we have to spent min. 2
lacks rupees on TA DA etc and it can be saved if this officer is
retained at sangli for rest period of 9 months. We also approached to
Sr. GM Sangli and expressed our views to Shri Ravikant Sir and
immediately Ravikant Sir also wrote a letter for retention of this
officer as being sincere and efficient officer. We thank CGMT MH Circle
, Sr GM (HR & A ) , DGM (HR) and last but not the least shri Ravikant
Sir for his immediate and prompt action for welfare of an executive as
well as attitude for saving BSNL money.

In both SSAs promoted officers are more than 3 in numbers. It was
expected that the seniors will be posted in same SSA and Juniors will be

DGM. Out of that the senior most officer Shri Vishnu Gholase is shifted to
Kolhapur and the Junior officer to him is kept at Sangli. Shri Gholase is

MTNL MULLS MOBILE SERVICES WITH BSNL ON REVENUE SHARING BASIS
State-run MTNL is working on a plan to operate its mobile
services business in Delhi and Mumbai in partnership with BSNL on a
revenue sharing basis. MTNL mulls mobile services with BSNL on revenue
sharing basis. State-run MTNL is working on a plan to operate its mobile
services business in Delhi and Mumbai in partnership with BSNL on a
revenue sharing basis. "We are having a very low market share in mobile
services and not in a position to make capital investment. We are in
discussions with BSNL that can invest in infrastructure and run our
mobile business on a revenue share basis," MTNL CMD N K Yadav told PTI
in an interview. As per latest TRAI report, MTNL had 36.23 lakh mobile
customers at the end of January 2016, accounting for 0.36 per cent of
total market share. He said the company has not been able to place the
mobile network expansion order for which Nokia Networks was selected due
to financial as well technical challenges. Sh. Yadav further said it
will have to depend on debt for expanding mobile network and the
interest that it will pay on procurement will not be in sync with the
income it will generate from the mobile business. "BSNL has high
negotiating power as their scale of operation is much larger compared to
MTNL. A high level committee at DoT is evaluating the way we can work in
sync with other. We are seeing if BSNL can operate MTNL mobile network
on a revenue share basis," Yadav said. When contacted, BSNL
Chairman and Managing Director Anupam
Shrivastava said BSNL is ready to invest and work with MTNL and
discussions in this context are going on. Sh.Yadav said the
spectrum payment of about Rs 11,000 crore by MTNL in 2010 disturbed its
balance sheet. "Besides principle, it (spectrum payment) increased
interest on debt raised by MTNL. We have huge interest which we have
been trying to lower by cutting cost and focusing on area where we are
strong like fixed line broadband," Yadav said. As per Trai report, MTNL
is the third largest player with 13.79 per cent market share in
fixed-line connections. MTNL is focusing on converting its landline only
users to broadband users, which it expects will increase average revenue
per user (ARPU), he said. "Out of about 35 lakh landline customers we
have, only 12 lakh are using broadband. We get ARPU of Rs 200 from voice
calls and ARPU of Rs 500 from broadband. We are targeting to convert 60
per cent of only telephone service users to come on broadband by
December," Yadav added.

This Day in
History (29-Mar-1857) – Sepoy Mangal Pandey shot the first bullet of
1857 Indian mutiny in the barracks of Barrackpur against British Empire
Mangal Pandey was part of the 6th
Company of the 34th Bengal Native Infantry and was a devout Hindu. In
1857, British officers decided to have a trial run of the newly acquired
cartridges with the 19th battalion at Barakpur near Kolkata. The
cartridges had the coating of cows’ / pigs’ fat. These cartridges had to
be bitten off in order to remove the cover prior use and this went
against the religious beliefs of the Muslims and Hindus. The general
opinion was that the Britishers had deliberately done this to hurt the
sentiments. the soldiers not only refused to use those cartridges but
they revolted against such an experiment. On that day, the British
officers did not react as they were outnumbered but they decided to call
in for reinforcements. British soldiers from Burma came in and disarmed
the soldiers of that battalion, humiliated them and threw them out.
Mangal Pandey was enraged at the
idea of the humiliation and on Sunday, 29th March 1857, he revolted. He
leapt into the parade ground and started inspiring the Indian soldiers
to fight against the injustice. Sargent Major Hudson ordered to catch
hold of him but not a single soldier moved. Hudson got hit with a bullet
fired by Mangal Pandey. On seeing this, Lieutenant Baugh came towards
Pandey riding on his horse but the bullet coming out of Mangal Pandey’s
gun went through the horse and the horse collapsed along with the
Lieutenant. Before Mangal Pandey could re-load his gun, Baugh took out
his gun but Mangal Pandey took out his sword. Baugh fired at him but
Mangal Pandey dodged and overpowered Baugh with his sword. Hudson and
Baugh ran away.
In the meantime, a soldier
named Shaikh Paltu went towards Mangal Pandey and caught hold of Pandey
from behind. Pandey managed to shake him off. He also ran away fearing
for his life. Afterwards, General Hyeres came with many European
soldiers; but by that time, it was noon and
Mangal Pandey was tired. As he realized that he would now be caught by
the British, he turned the gun towards his chest and fired. He collapsed
on the ground and lost consciousness; only after which the British could
catch him. Injured, Pandey was taken to the military hospital. Within a
week, he was tried in the Military Court and was hung till death on 8

CMD, BSNL writes all the
Chief General Managers of the field units regarding the expectations of
Hon'ble MOC&IT from BSNL in the coming times. Hon'ble
MOC&IT while inaugurating a number of new services launched by BSNL on
17.03.2016 was very skeptical about the required publicity of popular
schemes already offered to both BSNL landline and mobile customers and
gave examples of even some Members of Parliament not being aware of
schemes like Night Time Free Calling from BSNL landline etc. Hon'ble MOC&IT
also reiterated the fact that mind-set, working and dealing with
customer methodology has to change in BSNL immediately and pressed for
punitive action against non-performing officers / officials. CMD has
especially quoted "

Positive STEP towards the CPSU hierarchy by CO BSNL New Delhi
CO has issued revised reporting structure for JTO/SDE in Telecom
Operation stream in the back drop of acute shortage of manpower in
The mechanism is purely on
administrative expediency, wherever JTOs (not entrusted with looking
after arrangement) are proposed to be used in posts/roles
manned/assigned for SDEs, so as to meet the administrative needs &
shortage at crucial positions and by empowering those JTOs with
administrative and financial powers attached with the post subject to
the condition that the concerned executive is already placed in that
scale i.e. JTO in the scale of E2 and above. Under the arrangement,
wherever a JTO is used in place of SDE, i.e. hierarchy will begin from
that level itself giving shape to the reporting and reviewing structure
i.e. JTO reporting to AGM. However, in other cases, where the
availability allows placement of a JTO under SDE, there the existing
hierarchy shall continue. The arrangement has to be worked out in a
manner so as to involve minimal transfer/posting.
We were demanding since long back that
JTO will report to AGM directly and in Maharashtra Circle already this
scheme exists and while calculating the justified strength MH circle is
taking into consideration the strength of JTOs + SDEs.

Associations and is flourishing under the leadership of Com. Prahlad Rai.
Com. A.G. Joshi, C.S., AIBSNLEA MH Circle
in his opening remark mentioned that the AIBSNLEA is holding its CEC
First Time in Mumbai. He mentioned that all the HR issuing are being
taken up with the Sr. GM (HR & A) who is newly joined in the Circle and
is being settled amicably. He stated that the justice delayed is
justice denied and requested the Circle Administration to settle the
grievance without any delay. He appreciated the efforts of the G.S.,
CHQ in settling the grievances and supporting the Circle Body during the
time of crisis. He also mentioned that with the co-ordination of all
the Associations and Unions, SWAS (Service with a Smile) has been
started and is very effective.
Com. K.P. Nair, AGS, CHQ in his speech
mentioned that as and when Seniors Officers are joined, the Secretarial
Assistance should be immediately provided and in case of shortage, the
Personal Assistant / Personal Secretary of the subordinate officer
should be directed to work under the Senior office till a permanent
arrangement is made instead of asking someone other than the PA/PS to
carry out the works of the PA/PS. He also mentioned that in case of any
acute shortage of PA/PS, recruitment from the open market as per the
R.R. may be taken up with the Corporate Office. He also mentioned that
in the ERP as and when the PA is applying for leave and the controlling
officer is sanctioning it, sanction of leave is not possible without
entering the HRMS number of the PA/PS looking after the charge of the
PA/PS proceeding on leave. Since most of the officers are having only
one PA/PS, it is difficult to make looking after arrangements an
requested the ERP / IT team to take some alternative solution.

congratulated Com. Prahlad Rai for getting the transfer order of Com. A
G Joshi cancelled that too before the CEC and requested CGMT, MH Circle

appropriate action so as to save BSNL money. He has pointed out that
some executives allotted the Jabalpur Training Centre, are getting it
changed by some vested interest people with malafide intention and
requested CGMT to take appropriate action to stop the same.
Shri Sandeep Agrawal, Sr. G.M. (HR&A), BSNL,
Mumbai – Guest of Honour is his speech extended gratitude to the
Association for inviting him for the function. He mentioned issues
related to HR will be always there and if one issue settled, another one
will arise. He mentioned that there will be no difficulty in settling
the issues we the association and management work together. He assured
to settle all the pending issues at the earliest.
Com. Prahlad Rai, G.S., AIBSNLEA, CHQ
extended thanks for inviting him for the historical CEC at Mumbai. He
mentioned that the Maharashtra Circle is the biggest organization of the
AIBSNLEA and is the important circle in the association providing
support in policy making issues and HR issues. He mentioned that
Maharashtra Circle is also important circle in BSNL. He opined that if
Kerala and Orissa Circles can make profit, he find no reason why
Maharashtra Telecom not able to make profit. Maharashtra Circle
management is very responsible and the public is also very supportive.
BSNL corporate office is closely monitoring the activities of the
Maharashtra Circle being the important circle. He stated that when
the Maharashtra Circle starts making profit, BSNL as a whole will
become a profitable Organisation. He mentioned that BSNL is not Govt.
and not getting any support for CAPEX from the ex-chequer
Com GS expressed his
serious concerns regarding continuous trend
of the losses in
BSNL and emphasized that there
is a great need to think over it. Com GS mentioned that all the dues of
BSNL i.e. pending rural deficit charges Rs.
1250 crores, BWA refund
etc should be cleared immediately by the Government. In
his detailed address Com.
GS also highlighted the issues showing the indifferent attitude of
Government, Encroachment of Rule 37 A pension by introducing 60:40
issue, 78.2% pay fixation in case of BSNL pensioners, exhausting BSNL
reserve funds of 30,000 Crores has
adversely affected the viability of BSNL.
He mentioned that
non-reimbursement of USO funds, Licence fee, payment of interest on the
paper loan of Rs.7500 crores, pension contribution on the highest pay
are the other aspects which leads the BSNL into Loss. In case the
pension contribution is paid on actual basis on that account alone BSNL
can save 400 crores. Everything is the calculated strategy of the Govt.
to make the BSNL into Loss.
He mentioned that there
29000 telephones exchange in the country out of which 28000 exchanges
are in Rural areas. The revenue earned from 1000 exchanges in the Urban
area is spending on rural exchanges in rural areas telecom services.
He mentioned that as on
1.10.2000, when the BSNL was formed the staff strength was more and we
made profit. Now the staff strength is reduced to 1.5 lakh, but it is
making loss. It proves that the staff strength is not the reason for
the loss. He mentioned that the rural deficit charges of 1250 crores
should have paid before 31.3.2016, the same should have been reflected
in the accounts and balance sheet, though it is approved by the
Ministry, DoT has not arranged for it. The commitment made by the
Govt. while forming the BSNL was not fulfilled by the Govt.

informed that due to various court cases at Hon. Kerala high Court &
CAT, Chandigarh, there is huge delay in issuance of promotion orders in
various cadres. He added that promotion orders may be issued for more
than 6600 JTOs, 750 SDEs, 600 AOs, 480 DEs will get promotion within 15
days upon the clearance of stay. He informed that BSNL CMD has given
assurance that all vacant DGM posts will be filled up by 31.03.2016 upon
clearance on seniority issue from the Hon. Supreme Court.
discussed regarding various issues i.e. notional pay fixation of all
upgraded pay scales from1-10-2000, 5 advance increments benefit to JTO
SRD, JAO 2013 batch and PA cadre, withdrawal of clarification on
reversion of officiating JTOs while sending them to JTO phase II

He mentioned that BSNL is
not a sick industry. Circles have started functioning well. Many has
started in positive direction. He stated that with the available
resources only we have to make profit. The only need of the hour is
attitude change. He mentioned that the recent increase in the MNP is
due to the change in the attitude.
He mentioned that
Association is not only concerned with the HR issues and grievances of
the executives, we are there to provide quality service to the value
He also mentioned that many
number of melas are organized, Customer Service Centre is extended to

pensions and no support has been given to MTNL after disinvesting 46%.
The disinvested money of the BSNL was to be utilized in other various

Govt. is expected and we have to earn ourselves.
He also mentioned that
11000 crores I.T. refund is due to the BSNL which has been awarded by
the arbitration award by IT department.
He finally mentioned that
CMD is making lot of efforts, upto 31.3.2016 what best can be done to
make profit has to be done by one and all by commissioning all the
pending lease lines and other connections.

for the associations. Even then whatever issues are left out the same
will be settled under the leadership of Com. A G Joshi and Com. Prahlad
Rai and no grievance will be left out. He requested all to take care of
the BSNL as mentioned by Com. Prahlad Rai.
mentioned that many issues were there. 4 years have been wasted to the
non availability of tender for mobile services. After introduction of
e-tender for Phase XI only tender got5 success and now equipment got
from ZTE. The quality equipment got from ZTE has benefited to BSNL.
But, the Maharashtra Circle could not get ZTE equipment, as the Western
Region tender was not finalized with ZTE. CGMT mentioned that as
compared to other regions, Western Region got only 400 BTSs as against
the requirement of 7000 towers. No add on order has been given for
Maharashtra Circle as the cost of ZTE equipment for Maharashtra circle
is costly. Efforts to get the equipment ordered against Maharashtra for
other circles and getting diversion after its receipt has also not
agreed by the ZTE.
mentioned that unless the Western region gets equipment, Maharashtra
cannot flourish and Circle will remain back as compared to any other
circles, as floating of another tender may take minimum one and half
year, by the time Maharashtra Circle will loose the customers to other
operators. He has requested Com. Prahlad Rai to take up the issue
with the BSNL Management to get the ZTE equipment allotted for
Maharashtra Circle. He mentioned that the 10% of the revenue of BSNL is
from MH Circle and 25% revenue of the EB is also from MH Circle. CGMT
requested all to bring more and more customers, as the night free scheme
is very popular and inspite of free calls at night, revenue has not been
reduced on that account.
mentioned that youth has to be attracted towards BSNL by offering with
value added and prompt services. A separate cell is also working to
handle the issues of youth. CGMT mentioned that BSNL presence in
Facebook and twitter is important to attract the youth, as the same is
less costly than many other traditional methods.
appreciated the efforts of introducing SWAS by the united forum and
requested one and all to do it in its true spirit and also request to
make best use of the remaining days of the March month.
Shri P. Venugopal, President AIBSNLEA CHQ,
in his address appreciated the MH Circle organization of AIBSNLEA for
conducting the CEC in a wonderful manner. He mentioned more than 500
membership has been increased after the last CEC at Satara and the
credit goes to Com. A G Joshi and team. He mentioned that decoration
and other arrangement of the CEC is commendable. He also appreciated
Com. Joshi and his CS report giving credit to others for the achievement
and taking blame for the failures by himself and has proved himself as a
mentioned that many cases are pending due to court cases and association
has limited role in the case of court matters. Some of the issues may
get settled immediately and some may take some time. Requested members
to remain united and not to leave the association which is taking care
of every executive for petty reasons.
pointed out that GM Amravati and PGM Nagpur is not supporting the
AIBSNLEA. He mentioned that AIBSNLEA is true association and will not
take up anything illegal and will always approach the administration
with solutions. He appealed CGMT to advise these officers to proper
deal with the AIBSNLEA organization of respective SSAs.
appreciated the Whatsapp group activities and messaging method of
Maharashtra Circle. Requested all to participate in the ensuing AIC,
during middle of June 2016 at Mysore. He mentioned that AIBSNLEA
Maharashtra is the number One association and will remain No.1. As
regards financial viability, he requested everyone to work hard. A
positive approach from BSNL side is sufficient to retain / attract the
customers. Many flood like situations are handled only by BSNL and the
public is very well aware of it. Keep the BSNL viability as first and
foremost issue, rest will be assured by the AIBSNLEA CHQ.
