Team SNEA WB firstly congratulated CGM madam on her transfer to Delhi. Team also conveyed that the contribution of CGM madam will be remembered in the history of WBTC for making positive changes in so many cases.

Further through the course of the meeting, Team SNEA requested CGM Madam to consider all Rule 8 cases, as all employees in the waiting list are facing huge difficulties. Also BSNL Corporate Office has issued clear guidelines to relieve all the R-8 employees and declared WBTC as excess circle for JTOs, due to which JEs are not getting their due promotion in WBTC.

CGM Madam conveyed that WBTC has overall shortage of about 200 executives combining JTO, SDE and AGm cadre and it may be difficult to manage works if all are released in one go. It was conveyed that there are shortage of 200 executives, but in JTO rule 8 waiting list only 8-9 officers are there. So if we could relieve them, there should not be huge adverse impact as a whole. Moreover after MM streamlining, some of the regular works in BAs will be mitigated. Also in last more than 3 years WBTC did not release anyone in Rule 8. After detailed discussion, CGM madam had agreed to review all the Rule 8 cases.

Team SNEA discussed the difficulties faced in Siliguri BA due to non availability of GM SLG BA, due to personal reasons. Presently the charge of GM SLG is being looked after by GM ASL. It was also conveyed to CGM madam that when CS and ACS HQ were in Durgapur for providing Karmayogi Motivational Training, they met GM ASL and discussed about the issues of SLG BA. GM ASL clearly stated that it is not possible for him to look all in details in SLG BA, he will take actions on those cases for which Eoffice/SAP file comes to him. CGM madam was requested to give the Charge of GM SLG BA to the senior most executive in Siliguri BA. CGM Madam agreed on the views presented by SNEA team. CGM madam informed that she had already talked with Corporate Office for giving replacement of GM SLG. She also intimated that she will review about looking after of GM SLG BA.

About recently issued order by WBTC regarding sanction strength of Executives in different OAs/BAs, concerns were raised that there are some disputes as no DGM post assigned against SLG and KGP OA. Also the distribution of other executives are not in order. CGM madam requested the team to submit in detailed format and assured necessary actions will be taken accordingly.

Other discussions in detail were about many individual cases and about maturing of OTP cases. CGM madam responded that as per administrative need in few locations, options will be called from the executives to fill the requirements.

Other issues about development of WBTC were also discussed.

Finally the meeting ended with positive notes.

We would like to gladly announce that Rule-8 transfer cases consideration has been started after a long time. It was a tough struggle for SNEA to convince the CGM WB to issue the order since WB is an executive deficient circle. The issue was raised in every meeting for about last one and a half year and the results are now in front of us. We will continue to pursue all the other Rule-8 transfer cases likewise.


<<<26 September 2023>>>

On 26/09/2023 Team SNEA WB and SEWA WB met with Sr. GM Finance on agenda meeting as per submitted agendas by SNEA and SEWA. The meeting was attended by CS SNEA, DP CO Distt, CP SEWA, CS SEWA and DY CS SEWA.

At the outset of the meeting Sr. GM Finance congratulated us for the landslide victory in 3rd MV with 52.07% votes.

In his opening speech CS SNEA conveyed thanks for his kind words and intimated that now onwards SNEA and SEWA together will work in unison and come to his good office to raise issues faced by finance Executives throughout the circle. He also added that a good number of finance executives have become part of SNEA in last membership change over window and even a good number of votes have been casted in favor of SNEA by huge number of finance Executives. So it's our moral duty to raise the issues of Finance Executives in front of Circle management. Also transparency must be prevailed in the system for each and every issue.

Further CS SEWA briefed about the roles of SEWA in protracting the interest of SC/ST fraternity as well as over all BSNL. He also detailed about the alliance of SNEA and SEWA. In conclusion of his opening speech he also emphasized on the proper policy with transparency which is our foremost demand.

Sr. GM Finance acknowledged and ensured the best possible solution for betterment of BSNL as well as Executives.

CP SEWA conveyed that Finance Executives in WBTC are putting their best efforts to uplift the revenue and achieve Target assigned by higher offices.

Sr GM Finance reciprocated that he is recognizing and appreciating Finance Executives whenever someone is doing excellent. Most of the things in WBTC have become streamlined by this time.

After the initial words, the meeting got to the agendas. Regarding EPF issues, from Associations side we conveyed thanks for approving almost all applications of EPF Higher Pension. However, we sought for early resolutions of issues like pending approval of EPF Higher pension, EPF issues of Bankura and Burdwan, deposit for training period contribution and contribution for in between gap period.

Sr GM Finance ensured that he is fully agreed and pursuing EPF issues very intensively for early resolutions. These issues will be sorted out very shortly.

Regarding uneven distribution of finance executives, we showed the strength of finance executives BA/OA wise and requested for posting of executives in even manner by adopting transparent policy and not to adopt any pick and choose method.

Sr GM Finance accepted the fact and ensured to review it and also will take necessary steps to meet up the shortage. He also assured that no pick and choose will be there.

From Associations side we requested for publication of longest stay list of JAOs/AOs  and the shortage of any OA/BA should be filled up from the longest stay list if willing candidate is not found. Also it will be beneficial in giving L/A orders wherever required as per this list. Another one of our demand was to maintain reservation roster as per BSNL CO guidelines. In the continuation, we also requested to consider all OTP cases. There are many cases where OTP applications have been rejected 2-3 times without any reason.

Sr GM Finance acknowledged the same. He ascertained to prepare the longest stay list, but also mentioned that it will take some time to prepare the list. However, OTP cases will be reviewed by him and will try to consider maximum cases.

Next, we requested for allotment of at least one vehicle at OA/BA level for finance executives for day to day works.

Sr GM Finance responded to take up the matter with HR section. But he also mentioned that he is putting his best efforts to allot vehicle for finance executives.

We raised the issue of Temporary Advance as field officers are not getting the Ty Advance in time. In few BA the ty advance requests are being curtailed like anything.

Sr GM Finance acknowledged us that for running the show in the field, Ty Advance is essential and his office is having no intention to delay for making the Ty Advance payment. He intimated us to take up the case with respective BA Heads.

We also discussed about the growth of BSNL WBTC, merger of WB and CTD, IPMS, individual cases and others issues related to finance.

The meeting was very much sound and healthy discussions were made. The meeting lasted for about more than 2 Hr 30 Minutes.

Finally the meeting was concluded and Sr GM Finance assured us that he will review the points of discussion again in the next week and enlighten us about their progress.
