Recently it is observed that there are frequent cables damaged by the private/local bodies. In many cases the cable has been stolen also, sometimes, there is no control on occurring of cable damages. In such a situation, restoration work gets delayed and quality of service gets suffered. Further, in many circles, sufficient numbers of cable jointers are not available. Under these circumstances, it is difficult to maintain the parameters of Quality of services of basic services in SSAs/circles. In order to achieve better Quality of service parameters, it is felt necessary to have outsourcing of maintenance of underground (UG) cables including jointing.

27.01.2016   MEDIA NEWS:  Shri Anupam Shrivastav a man behind reforms and revival of BSNL
Courtesy from tele service media news pl put this line

In January 2015, Anupam Shrivastava was appointed CMD of BSNL and in the last one year he has been instrumental in scripting BSNL’s transformation.

After a long time, BSNL has shown profitability in FY2014-15. BSNL’s revenue for FY2014-15 increased by 2.4 percent to register Rs 28,654 crore whereas its services revenue increased by 4.2 percent to reach Rs 27,242 crore. On the other hand from an operating loss of Rs 691 crore in FY2013-14, BSNL registered an operating profit of Rs 672 crore in FY2014-15.

It is heartening to know that FY2014-15 has also shown the highest services revenue for BSNL in the last five years – FY2010-11 (Rs 27,045 crore), FY2011-12 (Rs 25,998 crore), FY2012-13 (Rs 25,655 crore) and FY2013-14 (Rs 26,153 crore) thanks to mobile expansion strategy of BSNL which helped the company to add 47 lakh mobile subscribers in FY 2014-15 thereby reversing the trend of negative growth in previous years. BSNL has also shown outstanding mobile data growth of 92 percent in FY 2014-15 registering a revenue of Rs 1,380 crore.

In the last 12 months, BSNL has added 1.84 million 3G subscribers and 0.22 million broadband subscribers showing a growth of 2.3 percent for both 3G and broadband. To increase its data carrying capability, BSNL has focused on Wi-Fi, data center, 3G, 4G and FTTH in a big way. Till date, BSNL has installed 650 Wi-Fi hotspots to give a big fillip to data. In terms of FTTH, BSNL has done well in 45 cities and increased its subscribers by 71 percent in a year’s timeframe.

Commenting on data revenue, Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL said, “We have missed on voice bus but we do not want to miss on the data bus. For any company data is the key and we are increasing data carrying capability and focusing on data centric business with main focus on Wi-Fi.”

“In the last one year, BSNL has strengthened its mobile data portfolio by focusing on Wi-Fi, strengthening its data network and core network (like OTN, MPLS and OFC), expansion of SGSN & GGSN, FTTH (Fiber to the Home) and others and this has resulted in huge jump in data revenue,” added Shrivastava.

BSNL’s Performance In 2015
Parameters – End-2014 – End-2015 – Growth (in%)
Mobile Towers – 77,920 – 78,754 – 1.07
OFC (in RKm) – 741,076 – 748,350 – 1.0
Mobile Subscribers – 79,340,005 – 81,178,657 – 2.3
Wi-Fi Hotspots – NA – 650 – NA
Employees – 225,512 – 211,495 – (-6.2)
Broadband Subscribers – 9,934,068 – 10,158,792 – 2.3
3G Subscribers – 8,919,408 – 9,473,885 – 6.2
IPTV Subscribers – 1,143 – 1,031 – (-9.8)
FTTH Subscribers – 35,752 – 61,053 – 70.8
NOFN OFC laid in 66,990 Kms and completed in 28,579 gram panchayats
NGN Capacity Migration is 1,524,899 lines working at 261 sites in Phase – I
NA Stands for Not Applicable

The company is also investing a lot to increase its data carrying capability. In terms of Capex, BSNL has invested Rs 3,300 crore in FY 2014-15 and plans are to invest Rs 7,700 crore in FY 2015-16.

“Capex investment in the current fiscal is focused on mobile network, core network (OTN, MPLS, router and OFC), next generation network and data expansion,” commented Anupam Shrivastava.

Seeing its performance in calendar 2015, BSNL is also expected to do well in FY 2015-16 both in terms of revenue and profitability but its biggest concern in 2016 would be its 211,495 employees and tackling MTNL’s operations. In FY 2014-15 BSNL’s biggest expenditure was salary and perk which contributed Rs 14,963 crore. In order to be profitable, BSNL has to see how it can reduce salary and perk by giving an attractive VRS (voluntary retirement scheme) to its employees. Tackling MTNL’s operations would be a big task for BSNL if the government decides to handover its operations in FY 2016-17.

23.01.2016  BSNL CO Mumbai FC Section issued CAO L/A order on as is where is basis except  one, who is transferred from Buldhana to Aurangabad.  Comrades we have requested to Shri Dhage GM (F) L/A BSNL CO Mumbai, to give all L/A promotion on as is where is basis.

GS and GS AIRBSNLEWA Com. Kishan Singh, Convener Forum of MTNL Unions & Associations Com. M K Bagchi met concern officers of DPE ( Department of Public Enterprise) and discussed regarding inclusion of IDA pension revision provision of BSNL & MTNL pensioners in 3rd PRC. It was confirmed that DPE has received a letter from DOT & our letter from Jt. Secretary (Cabinet) for taking up the issue with 3rd PRC as term and reference for BSNL/MTNL pensioners IDA pension revision. All it could happen due to our continuous persuasion with Secy. (T), Addl. Secy. (T) DOT, JT. Secretary (Cabinet) and DPE officers. DPE has now decided to take up the matter of BSNL/MTNL pensioners, IDA pension revision with 3rd PRC after its constitution. The 3rd PRC constitution proposal sent by DPE is pending in PMO for approval.






GS and GS AIRBSNLEWA met senior officers of DOT and discussed regarding-


a)  78.2% IDA pay fixation case of BSNL pensioners- It is informed that legal opinion of law ministry has been received in DOT on Cabinet Note for 78.2% IDA pay fixation case of BSNL pensioners. Now DOT pension cell has moved the cabinet note to the competent authority for approval. It is understood that after the vetting of internal finance of DOT, the cabinet note will be approved by the Hon'ble MOC & IT and then it may be sent to cabinet for approval.


b)   IDA pension revision of BSNL/MTNL pensioners- It is informed that Admn. cell of DOT is taking up the case of IDA pension revision of BSNL/MTNL pensioners with implementation committee of secretaries of 7th CPC for consideration.


c)    CGHS medical facility to BSNL/MTNL pensioners- It was informed that Ministry of Medical & Health is yet to consider the case. Decision is awaited, though in principal Ministry of Medical & Health has agreed to extend the CGHS medical facility to BSNL/MTNL pensioners. 


GS, OS (West), CS MH Circle met GM (Estt), BSNL CO and discussed regarding fixation of pay on promotion for executive employees - clarification on method pf pay on promotion w.r.t. 2nd Pay revision:


We extended thanks for issuing the orders but protested against the comment that the pay fixation method may be given notionally w.e.f. 01.01.2007 and actually from the date of approval by DOT i.e. 06.01.2016. We demanded payment of arrears as per the 2nd PRC notification as it was delayed due to administrative reasons without any fault of the individual. GM (Estt)  assured to look into and also discussed as follows:-


(a) Fixation of pay of officiating JTOs under FR 22(I)a(i)and reversion before sending them for Phase-I, training-


b) Recruitment of JTOs/ TTAs:- GM (Estt) informed that recruitment cell has already been advised to fill up more than 10000 vacant JTO posts. Similarly, it has been decided to go for 2000 JTO DR quota and 2500 TTA DR quota recruitment immediately. We further protested against this order dated 22 Dec-2015 and requested for its withdrawal , since as per BSNL Board decision these JTOs are to be regularized even without  any further  training and reversion but due to Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh and Ernakulam Judgement the super numeric posts of JTOs  could not be created further hence, a via media arrangement has been made by framing  new JTO RR-2014 just to regularized these JTO officiating. Hence, reversion of officiating JTOs is not at all justified at this juncture and it is violation of the BSNL Board decision. But the GM (Estt) was reluctant to withdraw this order. Now legal course of action are immediately to be taken. Quota will be recruited on the basis of one circle choice only to avoid distant circle postings.

BSNL came into existence on 1ST OCT 2000. BSNL Board after formation of BSNL issued JTO RR 2001 JTO on 26/09/2001.The Colum no.12, of JTO RR-2001, which stipulates for 35% promotional quota kept reserved for Departmental candidate through Competitive Exam amongst following Group C employees below 50 years of Age on the date of Exam, and employees of technical Wing, namely PI, RSA, WO, AEA, TTA, having qualification & experience of 10 years service in Group C, Cadre.


In the year 2001 BSNL Board took a decision to absorb all Screen Test qualified TTA’s @ 500 Persons per year by diversion of the Posts from DR quota as per clause 7 of Recruitment Rules 1996, and also  as per practice prevailing in DOT in accommodating earlier Screen Test qualified PI, RSA, WO, AEA, TTA,  for the post for JTO. As per BSNL Board decision @ of 500 Screen Test qualified TTA’s are promoted up to Year 2007and it is totaling to 3500 TTA’s completed JTO PHASE – I training and posted in field as officiating JTOs.


In this background in the year 2007 Civil Writ Petition no 5608 of 2007 was field before the Honorable High Court of Punjab & Haryana by 8 TTA’s who are recruited by BSNL and posted as TTA in the year 2002, as per BSNL TTA RR. As per the say submitted by these TTAs, that they are eligible for promotion under the prevailing rules but deprived as 500 posts of JTOs each year was diverted from the outsider quota to departmental quota to accommodate these 3500 already qualified JTOs as regular JTOs in the BSNL and that short of 500 vacancies are not made available for these DR TTAs to appear them as promotion to JTOs. So these TTA requested the judicial authority for cancellation of the diverted quota and revert back and restore the position


 In the said case, it is understood that the petitioners (DR TTAs) field the information about their qualifications and service experience. It was presented before the Court that these TTAs are having 15 to 20 years experience before the Punjab & Haryana High Court and claimed that, as Department has not conducted Departmental Exam. & Direct Recruitment and hence they were aggrieved and request the court that the diversion of posts for DR quota to the Departmental promotion quota for accommodating these JTO PHASE I completed TTAs is to be stopped.


The CGMT Haryana submitted the written statement in the Civil Writ Petition no. 5608 of 2007, on behalf of BSNL. In this statement there is no mention about the length of services made by these 8TTs in the Department and it was not brought on record of the Honorable High Court that the claim by 8 applicants about their experience put in the Department is not as per the record and the say submitted by JTO (O) Forum


In the year 2007 for appearing in the Departmental Comp. Exam against 35% quota, they should have had 10 Years experience in the post of TTA & hence they cannot claim any relief since they did not have the minimum required qualification to appear in the said Exam at all. All these and many other facts were not brought in the notice of the Hon’ble High Court in the written format statement. A.G.M. o/o CGMT Haryana has filed this written statement in the court.


Again after the judgment in the Civil writ petition 5608 the council for BSNL opined that this is a fit case for filing SLP in Supreme Court & Review Petition before Honorable  High Court of Punjab & Haryana but the Corporate Office did not wait the Review Petition and simultaneously after the judgment restraining the further Diversion of JTO posts from DR Quota, issued promotion orders by Diversion of Direct Recruitment Quota, This act of BSNL facilitated the group of TTA’s  to file Contempt petition against BSNL.  

Honorable High court has ordered In review petition shri. Kuldeep  Goyal  the then CMD BSNL for personal appearance. At the time of when the Review petition was to be field, the BSNL Authorities were busy in ensuring how to prevent the personal appearance of Shri. Kuldeep  Goyal the then CMD BSNL before the Honorable  High Court of Punjab & Haryana, in the contempt case by paying huge money to the lawyer. And further to avoid contempt of Court, decided to implement the court order in spite of the BSNL council opined to file SLP in Supreme Court & Review petition before the Honorable High Court of Punjab & Haryana.


Even though as per the Terms & Conditions of Absorption, circulated vide BSNL/IV/SR/200. Dated 2nd Jan. 2001 Para 11 States,


The group C&D employees who appear for any promotional examination whether direct or departmental and qualify in such examinations./ Outsiders coming through direct recruitment process, would rank junior to all other employees in the promotional cadre who had already been qualified in the earlier examination even though they get absorbed in BSNL subsequently”.       


All the TTA’s who passed Ltd. Competitive Exam in the year 2013 are junior to all JTO (O) in every criteria, but the BSNL authorities are trying to make all of them senior to JTO (O). This is injustice in the eyes of law. The 3500 JTO’s promoted earlier against Diversion of Direct Recruitment Quota are allowed to continue as JTO by creation of Supernumerary Posts after the court order keeping them in services senior to the 2002 TTA’s recruited and passed JTO Examination in 2013. However the BSNL Administration deliberately did not decide, the fate of remaining 2500 TTA’s who qualified the same JTO Promotion Examination in the year 2000.          


With the help of RTI Act 2005 & Through Punjab & Haryana High Court the information collected is about around 600 pages actual and factual information about the case. (CPIO & First Appellate Authority of CGMT BSNL Haryana refused to provide the information under RTI Act for more than two years, in that period suspected JTO promotion LICE were hurriedly conducted in which every appeared employee has passed and promoted. And only after the three online hearings before honorable Chief Information Commissioner BSNL authorities unwillingly supplied the information sought). Going through the information received it is clearly visible that, it was a calculated move to stop the promotion process of officiating JTO’s by applicants & Respondent jointly.         


In the circumstances explained above, we have requested the BSNL Management please kindly get the whole matter investigated and take suitable action against the concerned for their misdeed abusing their delegated powers for extraneous reasons and justice done to the Officiating JTO’s who are Qualified in JTO Promotion Exam in the Year 2000, Successfully Completed JTO Phase-I Training in the year 2004-2005, and contentiously working as JTO with full responsibilities of the posts for more than 10 years.


AGM (Legal) o/o CGM BSNL endorsed the instructions for Revision of Fees payable to the various categories of central government council, with immediate effect.

13.01.2016  BSNL CO Mumbai issued Tenure transfer orders of JTO

<<<<< CLICK FOR ORDER >>>>>



Comrades it is understood from the resources, that state owned company BSNL has made an agreement with Reliance JIO for Tower sharing and use the voice services of BSNL. We all know that Reliance Communication (RCOM) does not have coverage in many areas, while BSNL has among the best coverage and networks in India. Reliance JIO does not have its own voice spectrum and needs to tie-up with other operators for conducting voice operations. BSNL had, even earlier, requested to the governments that it should be allowed to tie-up with private operators. The loss-making firm wants to increase revenue and cut losses by tying up with private operators. It was opined that if BSNL made an agreement with Reliance JIO it will be a major boost to Reliance JIO as it would get pan-India 2G coverage from the deal. It would also help BSNL. It seems that now BSNL is being allowed to enter into deals with private operators. It is understood that this agreement was made in June 14, more than 6 months have lapsed but the stake holders (BSNL OPTEES) employees are not that much aware of all happenings.

 It is expected that this entire exercise should be, open and transparent manner and details of the same should be shared with our member employees,   to ensure that BSNL is going to be benefited from this commercial offering. The future, and rights of employees, has to be secured. It is learnt that BSNL and Reliance JIO had, in 2014, signed a ‘tower sharing’ deal, under which JIO would put up its 4G base stations atop BSNL’s towers. BSNL, despite having tremendous resources at its disposal, has been unable to make profits as expected due to several reasons, including wrong policies, communication gap within the organization and a forced expansion into non-profitable rural hinter lands. Comrades, this back door beak entrance of private operator should we allow? Forget the difference of opinions, union association platform. We all together introspect ourselves, think unite, and ask BSNL about this deal and then we will decide whether to oppose? or support? Think and act. 



As per the DPE OM No W-02/0002/2014-DPE (WC)GL-i/16 dated 4TH Jan 16 for revised IDA rates @112.4 % WEF 1ST Jan 16 BSNL CO NEW DELHI has endorsed this ORDER TO ALL CONCERNED.


<<<<< Click for orders >>>>>




Comrades, all of us are well aware of the fact that, after taking over the charge as DIR (HR) by Smt Sujata Ray madam a lot of initiative is being taken by HR wing of BSNL in respect of welfare all staff. Morale of the working community in BSNL was boosted resulting in the output of individuals also. She being from basically Finance wing, is trying to satisfy each and every member of BSNL family with in the limited resources available with her for HR development. Always it is said that, the Union/Association and HR are always run parallel or in cross means either two ways of opinion which never comes together or there is always cross or conflict. Here she realized this situation and started a dialogue with this working class, and created a feelings of oneness. This move of her started getting shape a bond of oneness and start working effectively. Differences of opinions are being converted into consciences and the bridge is started being developed of confidence, and the fortification in relation between management and Unions/Associations started. She has fixed schedules for meeting with Association/Unions and a process of continuous dialogue was started. This noble work influenced by an evil eye and corporate office has suspended the meeting schedule. We urge the management please lift the ban and DIR (HR) may please be given free hand and reinstate the schedule of discussion.

We also assured him that AIBSNLEA MH is very much confident that the new assigned target will also be surpassed by all of us under the able guidance and leadership of our beloved CGMT MH CIRCLE. We also suggested him that we have to center our focus towards SECOND SIM. As all of us know that, in Chennai, where other operators could not keep their services up due to power cut but BSNL kept their services up by keeping the power on by their DG set. This has benefitted to the customers who are having double SIM and out of that one is of BSNL. Every one of us has experienced that the FAITH generated by this incidence has boom the sale of BSNL SIM in flood affected area. We may take the advantage of this fact and if we market our product second SIM as life jacket for communication in emergency with some concessional offer, definitely we are sure about the increase in sale and turnover of BSNL. 


We requested CGMT Maharashtra circle about the shortage of Sims, in particular about the NANO Sims and shortage of Battery sets, Cards, Cable, UY Connectors, Jointing Kits and drop wire etc may be looked into. We also requested and brought to the notice that BSNL staff is facing problems in getting GPF withdrawals /advances. CGMT assured and aware of this situation will be taken at corporate level by his office.


We discussed with him about the Rule 8 transfer policy, request transfers in JTO/SDE/DE cadre. Looking after promotions in SDE/DE/DGM cadre, non following the seniority list no 6 & 7, and issue of Tenure transfer orders. BSNL Diary issue and the procedure for payment and view of AIBSNLEA MH Circle and stand on that subject was discussed in detail. We informed CGMT Maharashtra about the biased functioning of Sr GM Amarawati towards AIBSNLEA newly elected DS Com Labhane, and injustice to him made by Amarawati administration. In past also issue of same nature was experienced by an ITS officer as individual, hence we request to CGMT Maharashtra please look into. We appraised him about the opaque functioning of Raigad SSA. Non adhering the transfer policy norms, keeping all executives coming from Kalyan/CO Mumbai on transfer to Raigad at Panvel and putting BSNL in loss. We quoted classical examples for this favor especially bestowed by the DGM (A) at Raigad sitting at Panvel to selective officers, by giving them unauthorized DE L/A to the very near and dear of DGM (A) and close with …..... ?. (Known to everybody)


CGMT Maharashtra listen all our issues. We requested him to look into and he agreed with our views and he will discuss it with GM (HR & A). Meeting was lasted for one hour.

Comrades, on 06/01/2015 CS along with Com C M Saste, OS (W), Com K A Mohire, Circle Prez,  Com T S Gajakosh, ACS, Com S S Bhosale, ACS, Com S R Pophale, ACS, AIBSNLEA MH, Com Raju Gaikwad CEC member CO Mumbai, Com Hrushikesh, executive member, CO Mumbai office, Com Betale, comrades from Circle office  met Shri Sandeep  Agrawal  GM (HR & A) Maharashtra Circle.


We on behalf of AIBSNLEA MH Circle greeted him a very happy New Year and discussed the following points.


1)  Raigad Issue: - We appraised the situation of Raigad SSA. The HQ of Raigad SSA is at Panvel which is under MMRDA Mumbai area with 30% HRA and service area of MTNL. The SSA head is always looking after the activities by sitting at Mumbai office. This act on part of SSA head made the DGM (A) much more powerful and tempted to use it in colorful way.


At Panvel the DE Trans, DE Mobile DE NOFN along with their most of SDEs are sitting at Panvel and their equipment is at PEN, Alibag the DHQ of Raigad.


Near about 4/5 officers are doing DE L/A unofficially.  CO Mumbai has not authorized to issue any L/A orders to SSA heads but in Raigad SSA 4/5 officers are doing DE L/A and signing the crores of NOFN bills without having the authority. In past Raigad has experienced the bad effects of non following the norms in cable work even though the authority seems not have taken any lesson, cognizance from that. We request GM (HR & A) to look into.


2)  Non following the seniority list 6 & 7 in DE L/A:- we quoted examples and explain in detail the issue and made administration aware that it is a contempt of court hence please be looked and address the issue sensitively.


3)  BSNL diary 2016 issue: - Already we have communicated our view and stand to administration and requested him to fix amount and disbursed the amount through salary or BSNL CO Mumbai should print the same at their own.


4)  Request transfers of JTO/SDE/DE and tenure transfers: - we requested GM (HR & A) to please expedite the process and discussed the issue and modus operandi to make this issue transparent.


5) We express our stand and views for the posting of new incumbent executives in Maharashtra Circle. Any executive coming to Maharashtra Circle on transfer from non tenure circle and who has worked in Maharashtra circle in past may please be posted as per his choice and the executives coming to Maharashtra on transfer/promotion for the first time in Maharashtra may be posted as per administrative convenience.


6) JTO officiating issue: - We discussed the issue in detail and requested him please arrange the training for those who are willing to undergo the first phase training again as per RR of JTOS 2014. As the matter is subjudice, GM (HR & A) assured that he will look in to the matter.


7)  Staff Quarter allotment :- We expressed our dissatisfaction and resentment to  GM (HR & A) about the style and working of the estate (L & B ) section at CO and the policy adopted by the SDE (L&B), manipulating of records favoritism to particular association members or using that chair power to attract the new members, and holding that post years together. We quote the classic examples with proof and demanded detailed departmental inquiry. GM also agreed and he also had noticed some irregularities on prima- fascia. He requested us to wait and watch as he is setting the new procedure which is transparent.


8) Force relieving of officer by CO New Delhi: - We have quoted 9 examples where wrong reliving of officers from ERP by CO New Delhi is done.

29.12.2015Comrades, AIBSNLEA Maharashtra was continuously pursuing the matter of SDE (L/A) with Circle administration since last one year. When we took over the charge as CS in June 15 at Satara Conference the first point of our agenda submitted to management is SDE L/A.


We along with our President and CHQ office bearers met the then CGMT and had an agenda meeting in month of July 15, Prominent issue was SDE L/A issue. CGMT Maharashtra agreed with our views and instructed the then GM (HR & A) to prepare the list of eligible JTOS and vacancy position of SDEs, based on the assets as on March 15. The tortoise speed of the then Praveen (expert) was preparing the list since July but could not complete the task. HR Management was changed in the first week of December 15. We met New GM (HR & A) at Circle office, welcome him and narrated and appraised the situation of HR in Maharashtra Circle. He is kind enough and heard our issues including delay in SDE L/A orders. Within two weeks of time he could get the approval for 100 SDEs post to be filled up by SDE L/A in Maharashtra Circle from CGMT Maharashtra. We express our thanks and gratitude to Honorable CGMT and GM (HR & A) Maharashtra Circle for quick and positive response to our justified demand.


<<< Click for letter & vacancy position and list of officers in zone of  Consideration >>>


BSNL CO New Delhi issued a letter to all CGMs to relive the Executives whose orders are issued within stipulated period of three months time and if not relived by Circle then these officers will be relived automatically through ERP by Corporate office.


BSNL CO also instructed the CGMs the officers under transfer to out of circle tenure stations  should not be relived to Circle soft tenure, to escape them to perform duties at hard tenure.


As a onetime measure this time it is relaxed for those who are working at present in soft tenure.


In Maharashtra circle, one officer after transfer to hard tenure was transferred to Gadchiroli, a soft tenure in Maharashtra, but he has not joined to soft tenure hence he has to relive to hard tenure. If he would have been joined to soft tenure prior to this order he would have get benefit of this order.

22.12.2015Meeting with GM (Pers) BSNL CO New Delhi


GS, Advisor (HQ) & CS Delhi Circle met GM (Pers) and discussed:


a. CPC from JTO to SDE (T) and SDE (T) to DE (T): We expressed our resentment against the casual approach of BSNL Management in handling the court cases related to to Executive promotions i.e. on 16th November 2015 in the Hon'ble Chandigarh CAT neither advocate nor any officer attended the Hon'ble court from BSNL side and the case is now posted for hearing on 9th January 2016 Also the rejoinder has not been submitted by BSNL Kerala Circle yet in the Hon'ble High Court Kerala to get vacate the stay order on JTO to SDE (T) promotions.  It is a known fact that due to the stay order against promotions from JTO to SDE (T), SDE (T) to DE (T), AO to CAO granted by Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh the CPCs are held up since long and the BSNL Management is dealing court cases very casually. It is a most frustrating situation. GM (Pers) appreciated our concern and assured to concentrate on all these court cases carefully.


b. CPC from DE to DGM (Engg): We expressed our serious concern against non-filling up the vacant DGM posts on the pretext of pending court cases whereas there is no stay order on promotions. Every time BSNL Management is assuring that promotions orders will be issued by 31st October then 31st December and now 31st March 2016 which is not a reality. It reflects that BSNL Management with an indifferent attitude to deprive the eligible DEs from promotions is dragging the issue. It has caused serious frustration and resentment among the executives. GM (Pers) appreciated our concern and expressed his ineligibility in issuing the promotion orders in absence of the clearance from higher ups. AIBSNLEA will further discuss the matter Director (HR) and CMD BSNL for an early decision in this regard.


c. Cancellation of transfer orders of SDEs / DEs / DGMs serving or served the soft tenure stations: We resented against the relieving of SDEs/DEs/DGMs serving or served the soft tenure stations through ERP in violation of the soft tenure transfer policy and its arbitrary modification. GM (Pers) mentioned that tomorrow 1430 Hrs he has called a meeting of all Executive Associations to discuss the matter for an early solution. Similarly, he also assured that some SDEs wrongly relieved through ERP have been examined and their transfer orders will be cancelled shortly.


AGM (Estt) CO BSNL Mumbai issued letter requesting to submit IPR for PE 31/12/2015 in soft copy with HRMS NO for Non ITS cadre officers/official in the given format and for ITS cadre officers, physical hard copy is required along with soft copy.

        <<<<<<  Market share of all operators for PE 31/10/2015 >>>>>>


In Land line still we are at top position with 78%and more share but we should see to achieve more than 90% in days to come. The SWAS scheme will be starting from 30th December 2015. In mobile services we are lagging as we have only market share less than 8% while other operators are having 5 times ,4 times more market share than BSNL. Since Airtel - Vodafone - Idea (AVI) have joined hands and their market share is more than 65%, BSNL has to compete with this situation and to grow its market share by providing best telecom services to its users at an affordable price. 


Comrades, it is a real time to rise for the occasion, be unite and struggle hard to regain the glory of BSNL. The statistical data about BSNL market share is an eye opener for us and if we miss the bus then only we have to have wash our eyes.

21.12.2015Why should you subscribe BSNL’s Unlimited Broadband Combo Plan  Rs. 990 ?

If you have missed, just to recall that BSNL has launched a new unlimited broadband combo plan with fixed monthly charge (FMC) of Rs 990 with a very special feature of additional storage on messaging service 6GB i.e. BSNL is providing specially 6GB storage in their e-mail associated with every broadband connection however in all other plan, BSNL provides 1GB only.

BSNL has already started accepting subscription for this broadband plan from 26 November, 2015 in its all telecom circles across the country.

Now the question is what is special in 6GB storage when even every free emailing service offers more than 6GB storage, like Gmail offers 15GB storage, Yahoo mail offers whopping 1TB (Terabyte) which is equal to 1024GB. Then what is the special in BSNL’s emailing service.

18.12.2015Comrades, it seems from last week, about the activities at CO BSNL Mumbai office, that Mumbai CO office has appointed a puppet PRO externally, a private agency, who has been authorized to give the names of executives, their portfolio, work entrusted, their contact numbers in official capacity, and publishing it on their Association mouth organ with official designation and not on association designation, for getting executives redresses resolved. If it is so, then we feel no need of keeping HR and Admin Officers and staff and can be deployed to other task.


It was a customary in past that allotment of SSA posting was done prior to the joining of executives from another Circle. The initiator of that file in staff section is being involved in that process naturally the name of SSA where the new incumbent is going to be posted is known to him in prior to its approval. It is experienced in past that ringing was started from staff section to the concerned about their posting and if any change is required request for change was asked and accordingly posting was done of some not of all. With this new procedure the new incumbent has to join first and has to made request to the authority and not to the below level of authority. It is not correct on part of Association as such immediately we should express our doubt about their integrity. Let us wait and see. To make the system more transparent we have already suggested the policy to administration that any incumbent executive coming to MH circle  has served in MH Circle he should be given the choice of SSA at par with Tenure completed executive and if the executive is joining for first time then as per the administrative convenience or as per the request if feasible. So there will be no need to meet any higher officer, or initiator of staff section, or leader of any Association.


Transfer and posting, please contact…… mob no….. for difficulties in training, please contact …. Willingness is to be given, please contact….. What is going on?


Total anarchy comrades. No control of Administration.


Comrades, JTO (officiating) training issue is cleared by CO BSNL New Delhi, that while sending the JTO (off) for training they should sent directly without reverting back as TTA. Question was of again doing JTO Phase- I training even though it has been done already by these JTOs (off). Honorable CAT has ordered to maintain status as it is. The Praveen and its policy influenced so called expertise officer referred this CO BSNL and the mesh is created. It is expected that MH circle would have been issued clear guidelines over this issue.


CS AIBSNLEA writes to CGMT Maharashtra about this unauthorized channel for calling willingness, and running parallel system of administration by putting official name and the mobile numbers and Fax Numbers on the mouth organ of their Association.

11.12.2015                      The Status of 206 Seniority case in Hon'ble Supreme Court:  


The 206 seniority case along with the expert’s committee report came up before Hon'ble Supreme Court today. The case is now posted for hearing to 16.02.2016 along with 147 case.


                    United Forum meeting with CMD BSNL and Director (HR):


 The representatives of United Forum of BSNL Executives Association of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA were invited by Director (HR) to discuss the demands raised in the agitation notice in the presence of PGM (SR), GM (PERS) and Additional GM (SR).  GS AIBSNLEA, Advisor (HQ) AIBSNLEA and President AIGETOA, AGS AIGETOA, CS DELHI AIGETOA & Delhi CWC Member AIGETOA attended the meeting on behalf of United Forum. All the demands were discussed in detail but Director (HR) preferred to take the final view by CMD BSNL for resolution of the demands and she immediately arranged a meeting of United Forum with CMD BSNL in his chamber. Further, on the issues, all the demands were discussed in detail with CMD BSNL in the presence of Director (HR) and other officers. CMD appreciated our concern and after detailed discussions directed Director (HR) to give written assurance for the settlement of the demands in a time bound manner. The minutes of the meeting will be released on Monday and thereafter United Forum will decide the future course of actions.


CMD BSNL appreciated the concern of United Forum and acknowledged that under the changed scenario in BSNL, the MT recruitment is not the requirement of BSNL since ITS officers are continuing in BSNL on deployment basis, STS level executives are being promoted to DGM (Posts) in all disciplines, absorbed group A level executives are being promoted to the grade of SAG and HAG in BSNL and enough internal talent is available in BSNL to take the higher managerial positions with new promotion policies to be framed.  CMD BSNL emphasized that there is need for promoting internal talent in the company and hence HR wing should devise strategy to promote the internal executives and groom them for taking higher responsibilities.  United Forum requested that if Management is not willing to recruit Management Trainees any further, then there is no need to hold the SRD recruitment also as when the main exam is not taking place then there is no question of filling up the reserved vacancies either. United Forum side also emphasized that when there has been no recruitment for even vertical reservation posts for SC/ST/OBC categories etc., how BSNL can hold SRD for PWD candidates which is a horizontal reservation. CMD BSNL acknowledged the associations side views but explained that the ongoing process for Recruitment of MT (SRD) is being done under the directions of DoP&T/DoT on the basis of Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgment and BSNL is under compulsion to hold the exam unless until there is specific directive from the  Hon'ble court for not going ahead. United Forum side told CMD BSNL that the directions of Hon'ble Supreme court is for filling up the unfilled vacancies and not for filling up the vacancies of a cadre which has not yet been born in BSNL.  United Forum further informed that this has happened due to reporting the unfilled vacancies of MT as back log inadvertently and hence there is no need for going on for recruitment in a cadre whose future in BSNL is yet uncertain. CMD BSNL expressed his inability to stop the process in absence of any specific directions from court. However, CMD BSNL directed Director (HR) that MT exam which was deferred on 7th July 2015 be deferred for another six months further and in the meanwhile the proposal for scrapping of MT recruitment altogether be taken up in the next meeting of the BSNL Board.  


CMD BSNL also asked Director (HR) to finalize the implementation of committee recommendation on CPSU Hierarchy and Standard IDA Pay scales (E2 and E3) to JTO and SDE equivalent executives by 26thJanuary 2016. He further directed Director (HR) and GM (Pers) to fill up all DGM Vacant posts by 31stMarch 2015 on regular basis.


On DGM recruitment, he directed GM (Pers/Recruitment) to declare the results of internal executives who appeared in the exam. GM (Recruitment) said that the same has not been done in view of the court orders. United Forum side informed that there is no bar by Hon'ble Court on declaring the results and Hon'ble Court has only upheld that framing the recruitment rules are prerogative of BSNL. CMD BSNL acknowledged the United Forum view and asked GM (Pers) to arrange for the declaration of results and if required, he should seek the permission of Hon'ble court. He also asked GM (Pers/Rectt) to review the DGM RRs for ending the discrimination vis-à-vis internal executives and come up with a revised RR where there is no discrimination with internal executives. On the ongoing recruitment process, CMD BSNL asked GM (Pers) to keep him informed on the further developments and to inform the association side before taking any final decision.


On other issues, Director (HR) assured that she shall be looking for their resolution of these issues within a defined time frame and requested association side to be in continuous touch for expediting all issues like filling up of the vacant posts in Group B/STS/JAG equivalent grades, creation of PPS posts, implementation of 30% Superannuation Benefits to Direct Recruits,  restructuring of AD (OL) Cadres, E1+5 advance increment benefit to JTO (SRD)/JAO 2013 batch and PA Cadre, Declaration of LDCE results, allowing of Stepping of Pay to seniors w.r.t their Juniors, framing of policy in regard to Rule-8 cases, etc.


United Forum side also requested for holding a joint agenda meet with Director (HR) on all issues shortly hereafter.

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.

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 

good or bad, as if, critising anything and everything is their birth right.  But, we are sure one cannot fool

 everybody for ever and people are smart enough to understand the truth.

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.

Circle office issued transfer and posting of SDEs (Civil)..  << clik for copy >>


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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????

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.

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

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!!!!!!!
