The Circle Secretary, Organising Secretary (Com. S Awon), and Asstt Secretary (Com. P K Roy) met GM(HR and Admin)/WBTC on 22-07-2015 and had a detailed discussion on HR issues still pending at HQ. The issues discussed are  :-

1) Prayer/Request transfer in the JTO/SDE(L/A) & SDE/AGM(L/A) :-Our Circle Body took sincere efforts for inter SSA transfer policy i.r.o. prayer/request transfer for the executive cadres (JTO/SDE/AGM) and ultimately on behalf on Circle Administration DGM(HR & Admin)/WBTC issued on 16-06-2015 the minutes of the common meeting between Administration and United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations held on 06-05-2015 on the said issue. As per the minutes, all prayer transfers to be issued by the Circle Administration within 15 days after issuance of the minutes, that means all the prayer transfer orders  to be issued by 1st week of July- We highlighted this issue to GM(HR & Admin) and expressed our strong resentment in this regard. GM assured to issue the prayer transfer orders in the cadre of JTO,SDE,SDE(L/A) and AGM(L/A) at the earliest possible time and sincere efforts would be taken by Circle Office in this regard. All the prayer transfer cases submitted by our beloved comrades  to be taken care by our Circle Body for implementation as per the proposals of the minutes agreed by Circle Administration. We also discussed Hard/Soft tenure transfer cases and we requested to issue the tenure transfer orders immediately for the executives who already completed tenure period. We requested GM(HR & Admin) to forward the applications to Corporate Office for the executives in tenure stations who opted for the posting to their respective parent Circles after completion of tenure.  

2) Option for DPC at CTTC, Salt Lake :- On behalf of our Association, we met several times with CGM, WBTC and GM(HR & Admin), WBTC to conduct DPC for the vacant posts in the cadre of SDE & JTO at CTTC, Salt Lake and both CGM & GM assured the same would be conducted at the earliest possible time. But it is very unfortunate to understand when the earliest possible time would be in action. Again we requested GM(HR & Admin) to conduct DPC for the vacant posts of SDE & JTO and he assured to hold the DPC by August 2015.

3) Issues related to Repairing Center at Salt Lake :- We discussed the issue of acute shortage of man-power specially i.r.o executives at the repairing center and requested to post staff immediately for survival of the repairing center. We highlighted that total staff strength of the repair center will reduce to only three after the month of September 2015. GM assured to provide staff at repairing center at the earliest. 

4) Executive Diary 2015 :-  We once again requested GM(HR & Admin) to issue the order regarding rate of Executive Diary 2015 immediately. GM expressed his concern in this regard mentioning administrative constraint specially made by GM(F) and he assured the said order would be issued very soon.   

5) Recruitment year of the JTOs recently promoted from TTA & Sr.TOA along with JTOs recruited under SRD quota :- We discussed the issue and GM(HR & Admin) assured to take necessary action in this regard. 

6) Look after arrangement for AGM and SDE :- As per information received by Circle Body from our beloved Zonal Secretaries -- There are vacancies in the post of SDE & AGM in several SSAs and SSA Heads are not taking initiatives to fill up the vacancies. We requested GM(HR & Admin) to take necessary action for look after arrangement in the cadre of SDE and AGM for the vacant posts. GM informed, Circle Office will take necessary action as per the recommendations sent by SSA Heads in this regard.

Congratulations: Amendment in BSNLMS RR for promotion of Diploma holders to EE posts in Civil/Elect etc wings released today.

By this clarification, one of the long pending demands of SNEA(I), ie. “Parity in promotions in all wings” and the assurances given to the Comrades of Civil/Elect etc wings materialised. The Kanyakumari All India Conference of SNEA(I)  in 2003, decided to demand parity for all cadres and continuously pursued for that. Parity in TBP already implemented. This was one of our demand in the agitation during April/May, 2015 also in which assurance was given to us by CMD and DIR(HR).

Night Free calling facility to landline customers:

It is observed that the Forum decision to popularise the night free call facility among the public and restore the glory of landline not gone down sell in the field units. The report of meeting of the Forum at Circle/SSA level and meeting with the Circle /SSA administrations is yet to be received from the Circles. Simultaneously All India Free roaming is also implemented by BSNL.

It is the time to go all out and utilise the opportunity and add more and more customers. The next PRC is in our doorstep and just 30 months away. If our company is not coming out of red in this 30 months time, we all will miss the Pay revision in 2017.

Now BSNL Management is trying to address some of the important HR issues like standard pay scales, CPSU cadre hierarchy and streamlining promotions, addressing pay anomalies, amendments in RRs etc. So Comrades, let us focus only on this issue of next PRC in 2017.

Once again energise Forum at Circle and SSA level with the sole agenda of revival of BSNL by 2017. Night Free call facility in landline and Free roaming in Mobile connections are two offers having the potential to generate huge revenue in future.

West Bengal Circle pursued with CHQ for a long time regarding total failure of back Bone Links and Inter National Gateways specially in Eastern India , resulting almost total failure of BB, Mobile , Data service through out West Bengal & other Circles in Eastern India. We requested CHQ to take up the issue and to pursue with CMD and others to get solution in this regard. CHQ met CMD/BSNL and DIR(EB) on 18.06.2015 and details of the meeting appended below :-

 GS, CHQ President and AGS Com Vivek Wankhede met CMD and DIR(EB) and discussed frequent failure of OF links between Guwahati and Kolkatta affecting services. Due to frequent failures, services are badly affected in NE Region and Kolkatta is frequently getting isolated. The performance of ETP, ETR and NETF in laying and maintaining OF cable for the last few years is very poor. For the last seven to eight years, BSNL is hiring fibre from PGCIL, OIL, Mukund etc to maintain the services incurring an expenditure of more than 20 crores per year in ETR alone. Even after 8 years, BSNL could not lay its own network. We requested for targeted action to lay fibre by ETP and NETF so that reliable services can be provided and huge expenditure on fibre/bandwidth hiring can be saved.

DIR(EB) further informed that as a temporary measure, action is taken to hire dark fibre from PGCIL from Guwahati to Chennai and will be commissioned in a couple of days. Similarly, special efforts are made to repair the OF cable especially in Bihar end Eastern region and improve the OF network of BSNL. ETP is planning for OF cable laying in a big way. Further discussions will be held next week.

Meanwhile the progress in OF cable laying, tender process etc by ETP and NETF may be furnished to CHQ by WB, AS, BR and NE Circles for a fruitful discussion next week.

1.       (1) HABRA BSC to MSC link failure resulting more than 110 BTS down.—due to OFC cut loss in fiber and mobile service is interrupted on several occasions in recent times. Existing OFC is maintained by ETR but regular and multiple OFC cuts by PWD and other operators in normal route and alternate path resulting interruption for which huge revenue loss is suffered by BSNL. Although requisition for new OFC laying was given to ETP organization three years back but OFC were not laid. Hence proposal for 3+1 digital microwave system installation at Habra BSC and Telephone Bhawan with regeneration at Barasat was given.

We proposed to CGM to issue the pending prayer/request/administrative transfer orders in the cadre of JTO/SDE/DE by 31st May,2015. But CGM WBTC assured to issue the said orders not by 31st May,2015 but by 15th June,2015.

7h May2015 Meeting with Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD/BSNL, Sri A. N. Rai, DIR(HR), Smt Sujata Ray, ED(Fin) and Sri Shameem Akthar, Sr GM(SR) on 06.05.2015:

CMD called Assn for discussion at 17.00 Hrs on the issues raised in the notice for trade union actions dated 23.03.2015.

GS and CHQ president explained CMD and others, the compulsion to serve the notice. The Joint committee constituted 3 years back not even met once to discuss the pay scale issue, only few rounds of

 discussions on CPSU cadre hierarchy where as the time frame given to the committee was only 6 months.

Then discussion took place on the charter of demands.

1.       Finalization of pay scales of JAO/JAOs, SDE/AOs and equivalent cadres w.e.f 01.01.2007 by replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A, E2A with standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc up to SGJAG.  No demotion of the basic cadres of JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs. The JTOs/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 face huge difference in pay compared to their counterparts recruited prior to 01.01.2007.

Whatever the pre-conditions set by the Management to consider E2, E3, -- pay scales like rejection of E1A and E2A scales by DoT and DPE was already met. Assn pursued the matter vigorously in DoT and DPE to have a final decision on the matter and ultimately on 09.07.2014, DPE rejected the proposal and directed BSNL to implement standard pay scales. Only SNEA(I) pursued the matter in DoT and DPE, even Management didn’t do it, leave the others. DoT conveyed the DPE decision to BSNL by July end. However BSNL not taken any action in this regard so far. Instead of processing E2, E3, --- pay scales as per the written assurance given to SNEA(I) in March, 2014, BSNL again written to DOT seeking directions whether BSNL can change the pay scales since in the case of MTNL, Union cabinet has taken a decision to make MTNL pay scales equivalent to BSNL pay scales in the next wage revision. Assn explained that this decision of Mgt is wrong as the cabinet decision was taken during Feb-March, 2014 and DoT intimated the rejection of E1A and E2A scales in July, 3 months later. DoT was aware of this development at that time. Moreover now pay scales are to be finalised from 01.01.2007 where as cabinet decision is applicable from 01.01.2017. (The stand taken by some committee members in the last meeting that E3, E4 scale for JTO and SDE is their demand and E2, E3 should be given from 01.10.2000 has given the Mgt opportunity to refer the matter to DoT. When Mgt is not ready to consider E2, E3 – from 01.01.2007 itself, raising the demand of E2, E3 from 01.10.2000 is nothing but derailing the demands. It will affect the entire cadre and especially the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 but they don’t care). The Joint committee constituted 3 years back does not meet even once to discuss the pay scale issue. CMD surprised to hear that and concluded that the committee failed in its responsibility.

Finally CMD decided to reconstitute the Joint Committee with new Chairman as some of the members already transferred. Our suggestion to conduct the Committee meetings every week also agreed. CMD directed that committee may meet every week or atleast once in a fortnight and finalise the report latest by 15.08.2015.

2.       Implementation of Time Bound Functional promotion between 4 to 6 years up to SG JAG as per the terms and conditions for absorption in BSNL and analogous to CPSU cadre hierarchy.

Assn pointed out that the entire promotions are blocked due to litigations. It the promotions are not delinked from seniority, no promotions can take place on the existing seniority lists from JTO to SDE onwards in the future. So immediately BSNL has to switch over to other mechanisms for promotions, Time Bound Functional promotions as agreed at the time of absorption.

It will be deliberated by the new committee.

3.       Settlement of long pending pay anomalies i) Pay fixation as per FRSR on officiating promotion consequent upon the implementation of TBP, ii) Senior drawing less pay than Junior after functional promotions and iii) Antedating of increment.

On Offtg pay fixation, the committee will be asked to submit the report immediately. Meanwhile the clarifications issued by BSNL on 30.05.2007 and 19.02.2010 will be re-examined.

On senior drawing less pay than the Juniors, the Hon Kerala High Court order and Hon SC order will be examined and possibility for generalization will be considered.

On Antedating, the matter will be re-examined. Assn pointed out that switching over to uniform increment date is the only option as done in Central Govt and other PSUs. DIR(HR) told ED(Fin) to examine the feasibility.

 

4.       First TBP uniformly after four years w.e.f 01.10.2000.

GS explained that all the Executives except the JTOs and other Executives recruited in 1993 to 2001 and the JTO/SDEs from Civil/Elect etc, all others got first TBP in 2004. After 01.01.2007, all are getting first TBP in 4 years. But one set of Executives as explained above got the first TBP only in 2006, it is a clear anomaly and discrimination. DIR(HR) explained that prior to 01.01.2007 it was happened since DoT service also counted for first TBP. After 01.01.2007, due to 30% fitment and 78.2%, the pay has increased considerably and close to next higher scale of E2.

Finally Mgt agreed to examine the issue in detail and referred the matter to the Joint Committee.

5.       Implementation of upgraded pay scales of E1A and E2A notionally w.e.f 01.10.2000 for Civil/Electrical/Arch wings at par with finance wing and amendments of RRs for these streams to being them at par with Telecom/Finance wing in respect of functional promotions.

GS explained that the Vinay Sahi committee recommended notional pay of E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.10.2000 for JTOs and SDEs in Civil/Elect/Arch wings in order to bring parity among all wings. But Mgt not accepted the recommendation on the plea that E1A scale is not extended to JAOs also w.e.f 01.10.2000. The RRs of JAO, JTO(C/E) and SDE(C/E) amended in 2001 and 2002 only. Recently E1A scale is notionally implemented for JAOs w.e.f 01.10.2000. Now only few hundreds of Executives in Civil/Elect/Arch etc wings only excluded. The issue is already processed by Civil/Elect wings. Finally Management agreed to consider the case based on the Vinay Sahi committee report.

Comrades, recent developments of placing JTO cadre in E1 scale in the proposed JTO RR 2014, road block on all promotions due to court cases, non settlement of pay anomalies etc created the situation that the entire cadre issues are getting sidelined, JTO/SDE and equivalent cadres getting demoted and future of the Executives are under severe threat. When others are not concerned about these developments and not serious on any agitations, SNEA(I) compelled to launch the agitation alone to protect the vital cadre interests.

CHQ is extremely happy to see the response from among all the Executives irrespective of affiliation. Unity among the Executives is the need of the hour to resolve the issues.

We are grateful to the CMD, DIR(HR) and other senior officers for their serious efforts to resolve the issues through dialogue.

Comrades, SNEA(I) nourished these cadres in the past by continuous struggles and will not allow any demotion of the cadre or road block on career prospects. We continue the struggle to protect them and further improve the prospects in the future also.

7th May2015 Congrats to one and all !

CMD called for discussion on Charter of demands.

 in regard to officiating JTOs.

View copy of GS letter.

30th May2014 Important decisions of CWC Jaipur held on 26th &  27th May, 2014.

1. The CWC resolved to focus fully on the revival of BSNL in the next two years keeping in mind the next pay revision for the BSNL Executives due from 01.01.2017. The Management and all the employees should work in tandem to achieve this goal. Efforts should be made to ensure that “pension revision” also becomes one of the terms of reference of the next PRC.

2. The shortage of materials like OF cable, 5 pair cable, EPBTs, Modems and UG cable in Circles and MPLS ports are severely affecting the development and maintenance of the network. BSNLCO should ensure the availability of all essential materials in the field units for operation and maintenance activities.

3. The standard pay scales of E2, E3, -----, E7 should be implemented from 01.01.2007 without further delay. In case pension contribution issue is not getting resolved in a reasonable time, the possibility of extending relief to the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 especially the 2007 and 2008 batch JTOs may be explored.

4. The CWC demanded full 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL Recruited employees as it is a social security measure. The Management should consider the matter sympathetically. CWC decided that Association shall have further discussions with the Management to settle the issue at the earliest.

5. The CWC decided to explore the possibility of extending “Full Pension” option to the Executives and employees recruited directly by BSNL as a onetime measure as EPF pension with “Full Pension” option is equivalent to Govt pension. BSNL Corporate office should take up the matter with EPF authorities at appropriate level. Further the CWC demands centralized EPF payment.

6. The CWC decided to extend total solidarity and support to the agitating comrades of SNEA(I), Kerala Circle and stand with them wholeheartedly and unitedly for seeking settlement of their issues with the CGMT who works with a pre-determined mindset to destabilize the exemplary work culture existing in the Circle which has taken it to the heights of productivity and profitability.

7. Membership verification among Executives’ Association needs to be expedited. Meanwhile the issues raised by the Association are to be addressed by the Management to have meaningful membership verification. The subscription deduction through check off system to be demanded in case the membership verification is getting delayed further.

8. CWC outrightly rejected the draft proposal on CPSU cadre hierarchy as it is again linked with the availability of posts and seniority. Further CWC felt that by proposing very stringent attendant conditions, the Management is trying to take away even the minimum promotional avenues, today the Executives are having in BSNL. Time Bound Functional Promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy is to be pursued in the Joint Committee under the banner of United Forum.

9. For conducting the next All India Conference, 6 Circles namely Andhra Pradesh, Delhi (BSNLCO&NTR), Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan and UP(West) Circles came forward. The CWC directed the concerned Circles to submit the required data by 15th July, 2014 and final decision on the AIC venue will be taken by a Committee comprising of Com GS, Com CHQ Treasurer, Com Arvind Dahiya/AGS(HQ) and Com H Muthu/AGS.

10. CHQ Quota/Building Fund/Legal Fund payment: All defaulting Circles should clear the pending Building fund and Legal fund at the earliest. The CWC discussed the pending CHQ Quota/Building Fund/Legal Fund payment by Gujarat Circle. Circle Secretary, Gujarat Circle assured the CWC that GUJ Circle will pay maximum Building Fund, Legal Fund and all the pending CHQ quota by the first week of July, 2014.

11. Circle Conferences of Punjab, Jharkhand and NE II Circles are to be held within 3 months.

12. The constitution amendment committee submitted its report and the CWC after detailed deliberations approved the proposals. It will be placed before the next AIC for approval.

13. The CWC resolved that the pay anomalies like a) fixation of pay on officiating promotion and pay protection, b) Antedating of increment or implementation of uniform increment date and c) Senior drawing less pay than the Juniors etc are to be settled by BSNL.

14. First TBP after 4 years w.e.f 01.10.2000 to be pursued separately.

15. Many Circles reported very poor quality of Type II modem supplied by M/s Terracom. The range is hardly 2 to 4 meters in many modems supplied. It shall be taken up with BSNLCO.

16. As per the existing rules, immunity is not applicable for promotions. Accordingly for future promotions, immunity will not be extended. Genuine medical cases like cancer, mentally retarded cases, physically handicapped cases etc for the self and family members only should be taken up for retention in the Circle. Association should ensure that long standing Executives in the Circles should not be posted to the non recruiting Circles and nearby Circles to avoid long standing transfers to tenure circles.

17. CWC demands complete uniformity in the BSNLMS RR for promotion to EE cadre in Civil/Electrical/Arch wings like Telecom /Finance wing.

18. CWC decided to further take up the generalization of “notional date of promotion” for the Executives promoted in 2004 in LDCE quota once Hon Supreme Court gives a judgment in this regard.

19. The CWC demands generalization of FR 22(1)(a)(1) fixation benefit to all the Officiating JTOs and Officiating JTOs regularised upto 2007.

20. FR 22(1)(a)(1) fixation benefits and DNI option for the promotions from JTO to SDE made in May, 2000 shall be taken up with BSNL, DoT and DPE.

28th Mar'2014 Seminar held on 25th March 2014 at Telephone Bhavan on constraints and remedies in service related to CMTS, Transmission, Broadband & GPON etc.

SNEA India/Calcutta Telephones Circle is extremely thankful to Shri Gautam chakraborty, CGM/CTD to have consented to and participate in the Interactive Session with Shri Gautam Kar PGM(O), Shri S. Samanta Sr GM/HR & Admin, Shri K.C Ghosh GM NWO-II/CFA, Shri Pradip Gupta GM/Tx, Shri S S Dhar GM/CMTS, Shri Sinha GM/Marketing and Shri Balai Dey DGM NWP-II/CFA on one side and field executives along with Circle and Zonal Office bearers on other side held on 25th of March 2014 at Telephone Bhavan.

The Session was an absorbing one, wherein both sides, quite candidly and unhesitantly dissected the constraints and shortcomings to find the root cause to deficient service in areas of CMTS, Transmission, Broadband, GPON etc and could come out with suggestions as remedies to such situation. The discussion was largely restricted to CMTS, Tx, GPON, BB to make way for extensive discussions within stipulated time and come out with solutions, implementable in practible perspective. The deliberations did not dither to stay away from self criticism and honest confessions; rather, all had risen above such tinsel wrapped ego to come out with constructive proposals to save BSNL/Calcutta Telephones. Landline is declining worldwide, so do in India, The revenue loss in the segment undoubtedly needs to be garnered from Broadband and CMTS service. The Broadband connection brings high ARPU, so do GPON. But to maintain standard service in these fields, the BTSs, DSLAMs, Tier-II switches, Fibre connection to housing complexes---stabilisation of Trans Media should be the top focus besides maintaing electrical installations/ apparatus at various terminals. 

Com Nirmal Kumar Sarkar President/CTC addressed the House briefing the need of such interactive sessions in today's position with respect to Calcutta Telephones and find ways to deliver better service to customers.

Com Shankar Sanyal AGS/SNEA(India) expressed vote of thanks to all participants, particularly to CGM to have responded so spontaneously and consenting to be part of the programme

 On 28th February, 2014 a General Body meeting was held at TI Hall , CTO building,Kolkata. Approx 400 members from each and every corner of West Bengal State & Sikkim attended the meeting. General Sectretary , Joint Secretary(East) and AGS /CHQ Com.Sankar Sanyal ,CGM CTD and CGM WBTC addressed  the meeting.

18th Feb'2014 State President, V.P(Com. M.K.Das), Org.Secy/South Bengal,Asstt. Secy/Circle, Zonal Secretary/Central South Zone & AGS(Com.S.Sanyal) met CGM/WBTC on 15.02.2014 and had a detailed discussion on the following issues:- 

(i) Formation of L-2 team in a proper manner at Circle Office Level for CDR issues and training:-   We requested CGM/WBTC to provide exclusive Officials at Executive Level for a) TR, b) Provisioning,c) CRM, d) Networking issues and we  expressed our strong demand regarding proper training to be arranged for the executives working at L-1 team/SSA level. We told CGM to arrange training for the Executives working at L-1/SSA & L-2 Level because which works to be done and how to be done  by the concerned Executives are not known to them. We had a talk with GM/ITPC in this regard and he told that there is provision for direct training at ITPC nodal centre at saltlake for the Executives working at L-1 or L-2 Level. We requested CGM to issue a circular to all SSA Heads for the said training if needed for the Executives working at L-1/L-2 team. CGM/WBTC agreed on the said matter to issue the circular and assured to take necessary action to provide Executives for L-2 team.

(ii) Allotment of fund on Line Maintenance & Optital Fibre Line Maintenance Under Jalpaiguri SSA :- We apprised CGM/WBTC that there are about thirty Exchanges in Jalpaiguri SSA are being maintained by Labour only as no Phone mechanic is there. Normal payment to labour for day to day Maintenance work are pending w.e.f Oct,2013  to Jan,2014. As per report of CAO/IFA, Jalpaiguri about 18 Lakh is urgently required at a time on only Line Maintenance & Labour payment  purpose to sustain Landline & Broadband customers of this SSA.GM/Jalpaiguri SSA already wrote a letter to GM/Finance/WBTC in this regard. We requested CGM to allot the fund at the earliest for survival of Jalpaiguri SSA. CGM/WBTC told that he would try his level best for fund allotment.

(iii)  Payment to I.T.I for control cards repairing :- We informed CGM/WBTC that some control cards are pending for repair with M/S I.T.I for non payment and I.T.I will not repair any card further more - the due amount is 4.5 Lakh. It was reported to GM/Finance several times by GM/Jalpaiguri SSA, but no action is taken at GM/Finance end. About 80 faulty control cards viz. ETS/TSC/ARC/BME/BPC/HMS are now in hand, which are to be sent for repairing to I.T.I, needs another 1.5 Lakh. So we requested CGM/WBTC for approval for repairing of Control cards within 28-02-2014 from Circle Office as well as allotment of fund which is due to I.T.I. CGM/WBTC assured to take n/a.

(iv) Correction in Data :-For providing NTC from DHUPGURI Exchange Urban 120 does not highlight in customize. So it is to be corrected.

(v) Manpower shortage at Five CSC in Jalpaiguri SSA :- We informed CGM/WBTC that there are no departmental staff at 5 CSC viz. Falacata, Dhupguri, Jayga, Alipurduar,Hashimara in Jalpaiguri SSA, but the said places are of huge revenue potential areas.So Customers of the said places are not in a position to pay their Telephone Bills at CSCs and as a result the customers' land lines are being disconnected automatically by ITPC. We requested CGM/WBTC to provide regular staff at the above mentioned CSCs immediately for survival of Jalpaiguri SSA. CGM/WBTC agreed on the matter.

(vi) Non deliver of subscribers' Telephone bills through out WBTC :- We apprised CGM/WBTC that a good nos of subscribers of WBTC are not getting their telephones bills. Subscribers are giving their complains at local exchanges in every month that they are not getting their telephones bills from their local post offices.We requested CGM to look into the matter and to take necessary steps . CGM informed us that as a pilot project in some SSAs ( CAL SSA/ ASL SSA/JPG SSA etc.) print of telephones bills would be done by vendors and distribution of telephones bills would be done by our own manpower.

(vii) HR issues:a) We requested CGM/WBTC to allot exclusive man power including executives and non-executives for CM-Vertical under SSA heads and under GM-CM/WBTC.CGM/WBTC agreed on this matter.b) Transfer posting and release of some executives. c)Issuance of DGM lookafter order  d) AGM lookafter arrangement and other issues.

Our prolonged demand of Revision of RR of JTO(T) 2001  has been accepted by the Management and a draft RR has been prepared and circulated among Associations. This has paved the way for early regularisation of officiating JTOs

This was the original proposal of this Association since 2004 to make them JTOs as a onetime measure by amending the RRs but it took 8 years due to conflicting demands and all of them lost precious 8 years service.

Comments should be sent to CHQ through mail to  sneachq@yahoo.com before 26-01-2014.

However this Association strongly and unequivocally condemn the move of BSNL Management to demote the cadre of JTO by recommending E1 Pay Scale to the cadre of JTO in the draft JTO Recruitment Rule. We are fully committed to expose and defeat the sinister designs of BSNL Management to denigrate the cadre of JTO. We have tirelessly struggled for decades to uplift the cadre of JTO and we shall shed every drop of our blood to ensure that the JTO cadre does not in any way loose its dignity and strategic importance in the company.

       We appeal to our comrades throughout the Country to gear-up organizationally and be prepared for organizational actions to defeat the diabolical designs of BSNL Management lock stock and barrel. Let us not leave any stone unturned to preserve the dignity and strategic importance of the cadre of JTO.Click here to view the draft RR
