18.08.2016:  Meeting with CMD, BSNL

GS, FS, AGS (HQ) and AGS (Fin.) met with CMD BSNL and congratulated him regarding the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s speech on 15th August 2016 referring about the revival of BSNL. CMD appreciated our feelings and mentioned that it will give a great boost to the revival of BSNL and message to all concern to support BSNL in this regard. We also apprised him about our presentation given to the Chairman and the members of 3rd PRC wherein they appreciated our pleadings on affordability and assured to consider the PSUs for Pay revision who are making operational profits. CMD also mentioned that he will feel happy after implementing 3rd PRC recommendations in full in case BSNL’s operational profit continues.

 

We also expressed our serious concern against the denial of DoT on BSNL’s proposal for revision of pay scales in BSNL as proposed. We categorically told that we are now being forced to go on agitation path and requested to avoid the agitation, CMD should use his good office to get the proposal cleared from DoT. CMD mentioned that he has already directed Director (HR) to immediately reply the DoT letter on point to point basis on all the points and to clarify that BSNL is ready to bear the financial liability arose in this regard. He assured to get the proposal cleared from DoT.

 

On the issue of CPSU cadre hierarchy, CMD mentioned that GM (Pers.) has already given the presentation to Director (HR) and shortly, the presentation will be given to MC of BSNL. Thereafter, opinion from all the Executive Associations will be taken for further action.

DoT has written a letter to BSNL rejecting the proposal sent by BSNL on the plea that considering the present financial position of the Company and the huge financial burden on Government Exchequer in the shape of benefits on revised pension and recurring burden due to revised pension the said proposal of BSNL can not be considered. DoT has once again shown its apathy towards genuine issues of BSNL employees. This comes at a time when everyone from the Minister feels elated about improving financial status of BSNL. DoT's concern about 'huge financial burden on Government Exchequer is far from any truth as there will be no additional financial implication either for BSNL or for the Government in upgrading the E3 to E6 scales as all would have crossed the minimum of the next higher scales and there will be no impact on pension too.

MH west zone and east zone executives are thrown out of Maharashtra. MH west executives are shunted out to Kerla Circle and MH east executives are posted to Chhattisgarh circle. It is total injustice to them. We feel that after a prolonged period a JTO is getting his promotion after waiting of twenty / Twenty four years at the fag end of their services to the state far away from their natives with incurring so much of expenditure on TA/DA , transfer grant is nothing but a really a parody to the back bone of civil executives. We have already taken up the issue with CHQ.

SAB        Superannuation benefit

What is a 'Superannuation'

Superannuation is an organizational pension program created by a company for the benefit of its employees. It is also referred to as a company pension plan. A pension plan is a retirement plan that requires an employer to make contributions into a pool of funds set aside for a worker's future benefit. The pool of funds is invested on the employee's behalf, and the tax exempt earnings on the investments generate an income benefit to the worker upon retirement.

Funds deposited in a superannuation account will grow typically without any tax implications until
 retirement means when a person chooses to leave the workforce. The concept of full retirement – being able to permanently leave the workforce in old age – is relatively new and for the most part only culturally-widespread in first-world countries. Many developed countries have some type of national pension or benefits system (i.e. the United States' Social Security system) to help supplement retirees'

'Superannuation'

As funds are added, by employer (and potentially employee) contribution and other traditional growth vehicles, the funds are reserved in a superannuation fund. This form of monetary fund will be used to pay out employee pension benefits as participating employees become eligible. An employee is deemed to be superannuated upon reaching the proper age or as a result of an infirmity. At that point, the employee will be able to draw benefits from the fund.

A superannuation fund differs from some other retirement investment mechanisms in that the benefit available to an eligible employee is defined by a set schedule and not by the performance of the investment.

Understanding Defined-Benefit Plans

 

As a defined benefit plan superannuation supplies a fixed, predetermined benefit depending on a variety of factors, but it is not dependent on market performance. Certain factors may include the number of years the person was employed with the company, the salary received by the employee, and the exact age at which the employee begin to draw the benefit. Employees often value these benefits for their predictability. From a business perspective, they can be more complex to administer, but they also allow for larger contributions than some other employer sponsored plans. Upon qualifying for retirement, the eligible employee receives a fixed amount, usually on a monthly basis. The amount is determined by a preexisting formula. The function of a superannuation, in that regard, is similar to receiving social security benefits upon reaching the qualifying age or under qualifying circumstances.

Difference from Other Investment-Based Retirement Plans

While superannuation guarantees a specific benefit once the employee qualifies, other traditional retirement vehicles may not. While superannuation is not affected by individual investment choices, retirement plans such as the 401(k) may be affected by positive and negative market fluctuations. In that sense, the exact benefit from an investment-based retirement plan may not be as predictable as those offered in superannuation.

A person on a defined-benefit plan should not have to be concerned with the total amount remaining in the account, and is at a low risk of running out of funds prior to death

Steps being taken for increased use of Technology in HR works in BSNL(By Pers Cell )

 

e-VC

This will enable online database of vigilance cases pending against officers / officials. The vigilance clearance will be issued only through ERP, resulting in saving of time and cost. The Circles vide BSNL CO Letter No 500-51/2016/ERP/Pers-I Dated 21.06.2016 have been instructed to issue a completion certificate regarding implementation of this module by 31.07.2016. No VC Performa will be issued in off line mode after 01.08.2016. This module is in final stage of its implementation.

 

 e-APAR

The self-appraisal, reporting, reviewing, disclosure and appeal of APAR will be done through ERP. The physical movement of APAR’s consumes lot of cost, time and energy at various levels. The e-APAR module would result in timely reporting and reviewing of APAR, thus resulting in timely and speedy DPC. This module is currently under development stage.

 

 e-DPC

This will enable smooth and timely implementation of BSNL Promotion Policy. This would prevent multiplicity of procedures which need be done in manual DPCs. DPC will be done on online platform without physical movement of APARs and VC’s, resulting in saving of time and cost. As this module is linked to e-APAR and e-VC Modules, so it can be implemented only after e-VC and e-APAR are implemented and put in use.

 

 e-Court Cases

This will enable online monitoring of various court cases and their status, resulting in timely response avoiding contempt and further litigations. The court cases can be monitored centrally. This is in the discussion stage.

 

 e-Longest Stay

This would help in bringing transparency in BSNL transfer policy. The circles have been instructed to update the pre ERP career history data of employees in ERP module, so that longest stay details of each cadre on all India basis can be generated through this module. This module is in the data updating stage. All Circles have been requested to update the data in ERP module by 15.07.2016, so that manual labor/energy in compilation of data, persuasion with different non territorial circles is minimized.

Dash on 26.7.2016 hanged himself and committed suicide under depression due to non issuance of his tenure transfer order in time.  It is the total negligent attitude of Personnel  cell.  AIBSNLEA has been requesting for timely tenure transfers of the executives.

 

CMD BSNL replied to GS, AIBSNLEA "I am aware .. this is very bad … my deepest condolence to him and his family .. I am told he was having some family issues… I have worked in NE for two and half years and can empathize with feelings of people posted…  will task Director (HR)/GM (Pers) to ensure quick transfer orders and also persuade substitutes to quickly join there without resorting to any political or other undue pressures..

 <<<Click here for letter>>>.

 

a. The pension liability in respect of employees of DOT/DTS/DTO who retired prior to 01.10.2000 is solely borne by Government of India and the BSNL will have no liability in respect of these employees.

b. The liability towards pensionary benefits including family pension to the BSNL employees (excepting those recruited after 01.10.2000), as per sub-rule 22 of Rule 37-A of CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 lies with the Government of India. The condition that the annual pension liability of the government shall not exceed 60% of the annual receipts to Government from the item specified in the O.M. dated 15.06.2006, is hereby rescinded.

c. BSNL will continue to discharge pension liability by way of pension contribution in accordance with FR 116.

This is an another feather in the cap of AIBSNLEA and AIRBSNLEWA,  who fought and persuaded from bottom to top to get a rid from this arbitrarily imposed provision on BSNL and thus ensures bright future of DOT/DTS/DTO employees absorbed in BSNL.
