Gupta, DIR(CFA) and Sri M C Choube, ED(CN) and held discussions on issues related with growth of West Bengal and Kolkata TD Circles.

Meeting with Sri Anupam Srivastava, DIR(CM) on 08.09.2014: Detailed discussions held for more than one hour on developmental issues. Our comrades made extensive study on the GSM services, BTS outage, revenue from BTSs, performance of franchisees, retailers and DSAs working in SSA/BTS wise, USO BTSs etc and made presentation to the DIR(CM). Association suggested to make the retailers and franchises and DSAs more accountable to make them market and sell our product as now they are focusing only on top up business. Large no of BTSs are there where no francise or retailer or DSA is available. The USO BTSs not providing revenue will be closed down and shifted to other potential areas. Further to make each Executive and employees involve in the sales and marketing, “BRAMA”, a pilot project implemented in Kolkata SSA which is proposed to be extended to other SSAs also.

Meeting with Sri N K. Gupta, DIR(CFA) on 09.09.2014: During the meeting with DIR(CFA) in which GM(BB) Sri Manikkam also presnt, the following issues discussed: a) requirement of 5 pair and higher size cable, b) strengthening the repair centre at Training centre for  repairing C DoT cards by providing required infrastructure and sufficient fund available so that all types of C DoT cards can be repaired, at present vendor is not able to repair the cards and thousands of cards are not repaired for months together and c) being a lightning prone area, special fund allocation for improving the exchange earthing etc.

 

Meeting with Sri M C Choube, ED(CN) on 09.09.2014: Discussion held for more than one hour for the optical fibre network of Eastern region. A very good presentation of status of OF network of ETR especially under WB and CTD Circles made by the comrades of ETR to ED(CN). The discussion focused on the slow pace of OF project work by ETP, hiring of dark fibres from Rail Tel for one or two years for giving un-interrupted connectivity to South, West and East corridors. ED(CN) suggested to swap the fibre with Rail Tel as Rail Tel is demanding fibre from BSNL for NOFN project.

Meeting with GM(FP): GS, President, AGS Com Sankar Sanyal, CS/WB Circle Com Tapas Ghosh, CS/CTD Com Dilip shah and other activists met GM(FP) on 09.09.2014 and held discussions on JAO to AO promotion. More than 1800 AO vacancies are available but there is a move to restrict the DPC for around 1500 vacancies leaving the vacancies of 2013-14. Some forces are working to restrict the promotions by keeping the 2010 batch JAOs out, but Management should not became part of this, Assn pointed out. Assn strongly demanded to complete the DPC for all the vacancy years including 2013-14 so that JAOs of 2010 batch also can get promotion.

All Circle Office Bearers, CWC members, Zonal Secretaries, Zonal Presidents, Zonal Office Bearers and activists are requested to make extensive preparations by conducting Branch/ SSA level meetings and meeting each and every Executive one by one and make them to join the ongoing struggle and make the ongoing  following agitational programme a grand success.

7th June2014 GS writes to Management on important resolutions of CWC Jaipur:

2.Resolution on abnormal delay in switching over to mechanism of CPSU cadre hierarchy.

3.Resolution adopted by CWC on 30% superannuation benefits.

4.Resolution adopted by CWC on generalization of FR 22 1 (A) 1

 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.

21. CWC decided to demand “Notional date of promotion” for the JTOs who could not join in March, 2011 promotion order due to stay on promotion orders.

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

Payment of Govt pension to MTNL employees under Rule 37A: It is understood that as per GoM recommendations, the Union Cabinet discussed the issue in the cabinet meeting on 26.12.2013 as an agenda. Since the Minster of Personnel Sri Narayana Swamy was not present in the Cabinet meeting, the Cabinet deferred the formal decision to the next meeting eventhough it was an agenda. The proposal is to pay Govt pension under Rule 37A for all the MTNL absorbed employees as in the case of BSNL. As on today, the entire pension of MTNL retired employees are paid by MTNL, not by the Govt which made MTNL sick. Now the whole pension liability will be taken over by Govt. This was a major demand of MTNL employees which was strongly supported the employees of BSNL. Another major proposal in the cabinet memo is the pension contribution from MTNL employees – it is proposed to pay on the actual basic pay instead of maximum of the pay scales. This will pave the way for settlement of BSNL pension contribution also on the same line.

19th August'2013 GS writes to CMD  for an urgent meeting to discuss long pending unresolved issues whose non resolution has evoked strong  and  widespread  resentment and agitation among the members of our Association throughout country.

a) Standard pay scales of E2, E3, etc for JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs etc upto Selection Grade JAG replacing the pre-revised scale of E1A, E2A etc. JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 face huge difference in pay with respect to JTO/JAOs recruited prior to 01.01.2007 who got 30% fitment with 78.2% IDA neutralization.

b) Time Bound Functional promotion from JTO/JAO to Selection Grade JAG clearly specified in the terms and conditions of absorption in BSNL after negotiated settlement with this Association at the time of absorption. First Time Bound promotion uniformly after 4 years since 01.10.2000 for all the Executives.

c) 30% superannuation benefit to the BSNL recruited employees as per the agreement between Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations and BSNL Mgt on 12.06.2012.

d) Promotion from JTO to SDE under 67% quota for the vacancy years 2009-10, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 (as on today) considering the huge stagnation in the cadre of JTOs. Notification and holding of LDCE from JTO to SDE against 33% quota for the vacancy years 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13.

e) Filling up of 80% of STS posts on regular basis in all streams to end unwarranted adhocism - Appropriate amendment in BSNL MS RRs. Action to fill up the remaining DGM posts.

f) Settlement of EPF related issues like option for "Maximum pension" instead of "Minimum pension" and Centralised EPF payment etc.

g) Settlement of long pending pay anomalies like

i) Antedating

ii) Pay protection for the increments drawn during officiating promotion till the implementation of TBP policy and Senior drawing less pay than Junior after promotions and

iii) DNI option on Adhoc promotions from a lower scale to a higher scale.

h) Immediate recruitment of MTs from among Intl candidates till the implementation of Time Bound Functional promotion.

17th August'2013 Meeting with GM(Estt): GS, President and AGS Com Arvind Dahiya met Sri R. K. Goyal, GM(Estt) on 16.08.13 and held discussions on standard E2, E3 etc pay scales for JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs etc upto SGJAG and LICE to JTO under 35% and 15% quota, regularization of officiating JTOs etc.

Assn held discussions on implementation of standard pay scales from E2, E3 to E7 for all the Executives from JTO/JAO to SGJAG. The standard pay scale has to be implemented as per the direction of Govt/DPE. Non finalization of the pay scales demoralised the entire JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007. The TBP policy also not able to implement properly since pay scale of SDE/AO grade was not finalised. In the present situation, BSNL may approach the 3rd PRC without a pay scale which will create an anomalous situation. GM(E) assured further discussions on the issue after GM(EF) resume duty.

On LICE for JTO rect, GM(E) informed that the LICE result will be declared at the earliest and immediately after that the training also will be started. On specific issue of Kolkatta TD where none of the candidates passed the LICE, GM(E) informed that the Circle can hold another LICE within 4 to 6 months time. We requested to expedite the declaration of results as it will give big relief to BSNL considering the large no of unfilled JTO vacancies. Further it will motivate large no of TTAs aspiring promotion to JTO cadre.

Regularization of Offtg JTOs can be either by upgradation of posts as a onetime measure or by creating supernumerary posts. Assn pointed out that the regularization should ensure their smooth future career progression also and it should not create further litigation on seniority with the JTOs recruited through LICE as in the earlier occasions. On this GM(E) categorically told us that Mgt is aware of this issue and the Offtg JTOs regularization will be done on a prospective date and hence seniority also. The matter will be examined by the legal section before taking any decision. The seniority of the JTOs recruited by ongoing LICE will not be affected. We requested to expedite the process

09th August'2013  State Conference of West Bengal State Branch:-

The XXIV State Conference of West Bengal State Branch was held at Kolkata from 06th to 08th August, 2013. On 6th August 2013, Pre Conference  and on 7th August 2013 , Open Session were held at CTO TI Hall, Kolkata. Delegate session was held on 7th & 8th August 2013 at R.N.Mukherjee Hall, The Institution Of Engineers ( India ), 8 Gokhale Road, Kolkata- 20. GS, CHQ President, AGS Com Sankar Sanyal and Jt Sec(East) Com Ramesh Kumar addressed the delegate session and explained the active role of the Association in resolving the issues related to the Executives since 1986, through continuous struggle:

a) JE cadre was upgraded from 1400-2300 scale to 1640-2900 scale with change of designation as JTO through a Union Cabinet decision.

b) in 1990, through joint struggle, for first time in the history of any Central Govt. dept, time bound promotion (financial upgradation) concept was introduced in DoT by which JTOs and SDEs started getting lateral advancements after 12 years, again a cabinet decision.

c) in 1996 through Vth CPC, JTO pay scale was again upgraded from 5500- 9000 to 6500-10500 scale and cadre was also elevated from Group C to Group B gazetted which ensured that, at the time of BSNL formation, all the JTOs are absorbed as Executives instead of Non Executives.

d) In 2002, SNEA(I) rejected absorption without Terms and Conditions while it was acceptable to all other Assns and Non Executives.

e) SNEA(I) alone through struggle demanded the Terms and conditions of absorption and succeeded in getting Pay Scale, Time bound promotions and Fitment formula.

f) SNEA(I) defeated the management decision to absorb  JTO, SDE in the pay scale of E1, E2 at the time of absorption .

g) SNEA(I) ensured employers EPF contribution is at the rate of 13.5 % of current Basic + IDA instead of maximum ceiling of Rs 6500 irrespective of basic. From 2001 to 2005, the EPF contribution was a fixed amount of Rs 780 (12% of Rs 6500) for all the Executives irrespective of the emoluments. This benefitted the Non Executives (TTAs) also.

h) SNEA(I) compelled the management to extent the 30 % fitment benefit to all  JTOs recruited in 2005 irrespective of the  date of joining i.e after 1.1.2007.

i) SNEA(I) demanded standard E2, E3 etc pay scales in place of E1A and E2A and continuously struggled for that since 2009. SNEA(I) ensured the unity of all the Executives in the struggle from 2012 in the banner of United Forum for the larger interest of the cadre. The issue has to be resolved in the shortest time as promised by the Management recently through a positive recommendation from the joint committee. We cannot have any compromise on this basic issue as accepting any number of increments in E1 scale will be suicidal for the cadre. Then in 3rd PRC, JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs will be automatically placed in E1, E2 scale respectively? It is not at all acceptable to us.

j) The Time Bound Functional promotion, the agreement between SNEA(I) (erstwhile TEOA) was reached with BSNL Mgt in 2002 and became part of the terms and conditions for absorption in BSNL to be implemented at  the earliest. This is nothing but CPSU cadre hierarchy. The joint committee deliberations should be expedited for the smooth implementation of functional promotions on a time bound basis.

k) SNEA(I) compelled the management to grant 5 additional increments to  JTOs/JAOs of 2007 and 2008 batch and those who joined after 2007 to overcome the pay loss till  finalization of  revised pay scale of  E2 and E3 in place of E1A and E2A.

l) SNEA(I) took leading role in mobilising the Executives and Non Executives for the implementation of 78.2% IDA fitment, 30% superannuation benefit and Child Care Leave. Orders on 78.2% and CCL have already been issued. The committee constituted for 30% superannuation benefit submitted its reports and Assn is trying to mobilise the opinion of all the Unions/Assns to have maximum contribution from BSNL side.

Further SNEA(I) is focussing on the revival of BSNL our beloved company. This is also equally or more important than resolution of cadre issues since company is our bread and butter. Resolution of the cadre issues does not have any meaning unless and until BSNL is having the money to pay. SNEA(I) is really concerned about the future of the seniors and more concerned about the young recruits who are having 20 to 30 years service to go. If we are forgetting the financial health of the company and focussing on cadre issues alone, we are doing a big mistake. When others are silent on these most important issue, we had taken a leading role to raise and focus on issues of viability of BSNL.  

The open session was held on 07th August, 2013 and more than 350 comrades attended the open session. GS, CHQ President, Shri  Salil Kumar Bhaduri, CGM/WBTC, Shri  Gautam Chakravarty, CGM/CTD, Shri  S Rajhans  CGM/TS & TF, several GMs of CTD & West Bengal Telecom Circle  and Com.

GS writes to the CMD/ BSNL to incorporate appropriate amendments in BSNLMS RR-2009 to end existing Adhocism in STS promotions. Assn proposes a) to earmark maximum 600 to 800 STS posts exclusively for MT recruitment and the remaining STS posts to be filled by regular promotion instead of Adhoc promotion and b) to have a separate seniority for STS promotion quota from TES Gr B and MT quota, and promotions to the DGM posts may be given from the respective seniority lists to the extent of 50% quota specified for each stream in the BSNL MS RRs. This is a mechanism till the implementation of Time bound functional promotion / CPSU cadre hierarchy in BSNL.

21st January'2013  Hon.PCAT NewDelhi delivered an important judgement in     
                             Management Trainee RR case filed by the Association

      Hon. PCAT NewDelhi declared that the restriction on age and qualification for internal candidates in the MT RR is arbitrary and discriminatory and directed the authorities to revise the MT RR accordingly.
     Further the Hon. Court directed that the ongoing MT recruitment process should be completed as per the interim direction given by the Hon. Ernakulam CAT (i.e) without age and qualification restriction.
     This is a great victory for the stand taken by this Association, that the restriction of age and qualification in MT RR is discriminatory and the same is now vindicated by this judgement.
     Originally our Association challenged the MT RR at Hon. Ernakulam CAT and got provisional admission, later on the case has been transferred to Hon. PCAT NewDelhi. The Association is fighting this case along with AIBSNLEA at Hon.PCAT, NewDelhi.
