Mitra, CT, Com. S. Awon, CWC Member met with CGMT, WBTC at his chamber on 19.09.2018. After introducing all Office Bearers present over there he expressed his gratitude to CGMT for being present at the Open Session held on 31.08.2018 at Moulali Yuva Kendra at such short notice albeit of his busy schedule. Also CS thanked him for issuing a DO Letter No. CGM/WB/DEV. MTG/2018 dated 5th September, 2018 regarding constitution of different teams with specific responsibilities in various verticals in SSA/BA with nominating corresponding Reporting Authority of each vertical at Circle level.

Also CS demanded CGMT to bring all the manpower irrespective of Executives, Non-executives and others  posted at different establishments of WBTC under the purview of above said  specific verticals. It is demanded further to fix up accountability and responsibility to each and every official irrespective of Executives,  Non-executives and others preferably in one vertical  provided with required resources and infrastructure . CGMT assured to take appropriate measure in this regard.

Next CS pointed out to the CGMT that UG Cables of different dimensions are proposed to be diverted from this circle. This would lead to hamper the UG cable laying proposals in future. In this point CGMT opined that at this critical juncture, UG cable laying is not a good position compared to the upcoming technologies like FTTH. Rather he insisted to close the exchanges with less than 20 DELs and the UG cables laid in those exchange areas may be recovered by pulling with tractors and the same may be utilized for fault restoration purpose.

Further, CS requested to the CGMT to complete the pending ATs and other formalities so that the NOFN infrastructure may be handed over to BBNL yielding additional revenue for the Circle. Also the same infrastructure may be solicited with BBNL for utilization for our own network as and where required. In this regard, CGMT dissented that NOFN work progress is not up to the mark for various reasons in the Circle. Specifically he remarked that due to lossy incremental OFC stretches, the progress is getting badly delayed.

Regarding pending HR issues, detailed discussion has taken place with CGMT. In the context of posting of newly promoted SDEs and AGMs, he replied that already order has been issued to the SSA heads for issuance of intra SSA posting as per the requirement. It is reiterated to him to kindly percolate the same order to all the SSA heads again to issue the posting orders of the newly promoted SDEs/AGMs as well. He told that the necessary instruction will be conveyed by him to GM (HR).

Meeting with Smt Sujatha T Ray Dir/HR & Admin

A delegation of SNEA/CTC and WBTC met Smt Sujatha T Ray Dir/HR & Admin at Ballygunge Place , Kolkata in the intervening slot of Review Meeting as part of the official fixture. Com Dilip Saha CS/CTD, Com Tapas Ghosh CS/WB, Com Soumen Ghosh ACS/CTD, Com Sankar Sanyal Jt Secretary(E), Com Ankur Singh AO/ETP, Com Anisul Haq AO/TF, Com Tapas Mazumder, CAO and Com Madhuchandra Rakshit represented the said delegation.

After a brief exchange of pleasantries, We thanked Dir/HR for issuing the promotion orders from JTO to SDE & SDE to AGM/DE/EE cadre in Telecom, Civil, Electrical, TF etc. and also from JAO to AO. We should introduced the CAOs (L/A) under purview of promotion and wanted to know the hurdles for effecting promotion of 2003 & 2005 AOs in spite of sufficient and indisputable vacancy (regular) existing to accommodate them. Dir HR spoke of litigation in court and that next date of hearing is on 07/09/2018. But then, she is trying to see, if the dates could be proponed for early submission from BSNL. In as much as catch up rule is concerned, the same is not applicable for CPSEs. We apprised her that a figure of 670(approx) vacancy existing in the cadre of CAO and that 2003 & 2005 AO promotes could hardly fill in 450(approx). So, apparently, there is no reason not to go ahead with the promotion. Dir/HR clarified that submission from BSNL is required before the management could go ahead with the promotion and that if the dates of hearing could be prefixed, there is likelihood of orders being issued by end of Aug 2018. 


DIR(HR) was reminded of around 6000 vacancies existing in the cadre of SDE and that effecting promotion upto the year of 2010 should not pose a problem. She assured to explore all means to promote to the best extent feasible. When asked, whether parity in promotion in all cadres can be expected in the coming days? She retorted, that accounts, under the existing system always have had a privilege, however, the matter of parity is under her active consideration. 

E2/E3 IDA pay scales for the cadre of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO and other equivalent cadres :– We apprised her of the initiative taken by the association during this intervening period and as had been suggested by her in the last meeting in Kolkata. In fact, the letter addressed to Hon’ble Minister of Communication in recent past drew intervention from the appropriate authority to see the file return from DoP&T to DOT. Thereafter, DOT had send the file to DPE, reportedly with statement of facts considered to be incorrect. SNEA had already met Secretary/DPE and Advisor DPE to brief on the issue put the facts in perspective with DPE. The submission by DOT that E1A and E2A are meant for absorbees only is thoroughly incorrect. Association requested her to depute some senior officers to DPE to clear the haze. Dir/HR readily agreed to the proposal and said that GM/Establishment is already tasked with the job.

3rd PRC:-Dir/HR exhorted to meet Hon’ble Minister in this regard and apprise him of the situation. She said, Hon’ble Minister was very keen to go ahead with it but unfortunately, of late, no meeting could be held in this regard. She also informed that one or two unions/association had sought meeting with Hon’ble Minister but reportedly no confirmation has been conveyed in this regard. She is of the opinion, either the unions and associations meet the minister to know on its status or management could seek a meeting to apprise on its progress. 

Promotion from SDE to DE:–Dir/HR informed that she is contemplating to effect list no-8. 

Promotion from DE to DGM:–Dir/HR informed that around 700 vacancies are existing in the cadre of DGM. A further up-gradation would be required to accommodate all eligible DEs till date. She informed the management has kept the matter under consideration.

Association queried on when management is deciding to implement CPSE Hierarchy– Dir/HR shot back to know what SNEA is expecting of ? Association said that SNEA/CHQ had always been a proponent of CPSE Hierarchy and advocated for early implementation. The large number of promotion that had occurred indeed brought about a great deal of content but it has widened the notion of disparity too. Dir/HR replied that she would try her best to bring about parity in promotion. However, some court cases are to be taken care of before effecting promotion in some cadres. She believes, the notification could come out in Aug or Sept 2018–hopefully by then the decks would get cleared and left out promotions effected. She also made it a point that notification in respect of CPSE Hierarchy shall have retrospective effect.

Focus should be on improving the external plant, instead of equipments at customer premises. For this, SSA heads should be enpowered to procure materials like jumper wire, UY connector, CT Boxes etc. Business Area concept taken away the powers of small SSA heads, TDMs or TDEs. First their financial powers are to be restored. Management agreed to consider our suggestions.

b) Free Call Diversion Facility from Land Phone to Mobile:Management welcomed our suggestions and assured early actions.

c) Empanelment of vendors and no procurement of modems: It is informed that management seriously considered this demand from us and decision is already taken:

i) for empanelment of vendors.

ii) to procure quality/branded modems only and if required, tender document will be amended/modified for that purpose.

We further stressed that purchase, if at all required should be restricted to branded items with additional features, 3G inbuilt data card etc with latest software. Management agreed to consider this points also.

In a major breakthrough, the draft proposal on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy presented by PGM and Jt GM(Pers) to CMD and DIR(HR). It is understood that CMD almost agreed to the proposal and directed to process it further.

It will be a great breakthrough for all the cadres. On implementation, it will bring uniformity in promotional avenues

to all the cadres in different wing upto AGM/CAO equivalent grades.

In the intervening period of processing the CPSU Hierarchy, the ongoing promotions upto 2015-16 vacancy years will be completed to the extent possible for the smooth change over to CPSU Hierarchy.

In another major breakthrough, management agreed to our demand for increasing the DGM(T) posts from the present 1303. Mgt agreed to increase the number from 1303 to 1900, almost 50% hike. Still we are trying for some more increase in the

number to maintain a ratio with the number of AGMs in CPSU Hierarchy. Telecom Engg side is having

very less number of posts comparing to other streams.

C H Q Leaders are continuously knocking the doors of BSNL, DoT and MOC

to fulfill our long cherished demands within a very short time

Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations vigorously pursued the HR issues with CMD/BSNL, DIR(HR), PS to MoSC, PGM(Pers), PGM(Estt) and GM(FP) during last one week. The following positive developments also happened in various issues. In addition to the CHQ leaders of JF, Com Laxman, President/AIGETOA was also available at HQ during this week.

a) Implementation of standard pay scales of E2 and E3 w.e.f 01.01.2007:

BSNL proposal is not seriously processed by DoT so far. The matter is still at Director/Jt Secretary level. So JF leaders met PS to MoSC for expediting the approval. After discussion, PS assured that the matter will be discussed with Hon Minister and an opinion will be made. Thereafter necessary actions will be taken. We sincerely hope that DoT will review its decision and approve the BSNL proposal for E2 and E3 scales before 06th August as JF agitations on pay scales are postponed till 06.08.2017. 

b) Promotions in different cadres:

i) JTO(T) to SDE(T) promotion in both quotas: The gradation particulars of the JTOs upto 2005 rect year called by BSNLCO from the Circles. This is due to huge retirement of senior JTOs and large number of JTOs in the AIEL passed the LDCE for SDE(T) promotion. BSNLCO directed Kerala Circle to file an urgent MA for allowing BSNL to go ahead with DPC and promotions subject to the outcome of the court cases. Pers section of BSNLCO called the applicants of the case at Ernakulam for discussion during the month of May, on the initiative of JF. Mgt assured them that there are sufficient vacancies to promote all the eligible JTOs and to facilitate the DPC and promotion. Seniority fixation will be decided as per court decision. They responded very positively. Once court grants permission in the MA for conduction of DPC and issuing promotion orders, we will be able to go ahead with promotion orders immediately. JF is in touch with the applicants and have clarified the stand and the strong initiatives from management side in this regard.

Meanwhile an administrative decision shall be taken by the management to go ahead with promotions in light of the court judgments on reservation, Govt guidelines and the SLP filed in the Hon SC. This will be filed as an affidavit in the Hon Chandigarh HC before effecting promotions in all the cadres where judgment on reservation is involved. This will pave the way to promotions through LDCE/DPC which have been held up for so long.

ii) JAO to AO promotion: The proposal for administrative approval for conducting the DPC is processed, vacancy yearwise. More than 650 vacancies are there as on date. After the approval, ACRs will be collected and VC will be called.

iii) SDE to DE promotion: The roster preparation for 2014-15 and 2015-16 (as on 31.03.2016) almost completed. It will be sent to SCT Cell for approval. Simultaneously action will be initiated to call the VCs. Large number of missing ACR cases are there which is uploaded in the intranet and in our website. All CSs and SSA secretaries to pursue urgently and send the ACRs. The assessment report and soft copy also required urgently.

iv) AO to CAO promotion: Action is initiated for administrative approval. After that ACRs will be collected from CR section and VCs will be called.

v) SDE( C) to EE( C) promotion: Once BSNL mgt taken a decision on reservation issue based on the judgment and Govt orders, this promotion can be issued. DPC is already conducted. Only fresh VC required.

c) 30% Superannuation Benefits: After lot of persuasion, management moved a proposal for increasing the contribution by 2%. However, JF and the Unions & Associations are trying its level best to increase the contribution as per our demand. Earlier management proposed the increase in stages, starting with 1%. File is in EF section, discussion completed and expected the clearance by Monday. It is expected to be cleared by the MC of the BSNL Board in a month time.

d) CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation: The draft proposal is examined by Legal Cell and returned to Pers Cell with their opinion. During discussions with management, it was decided to switch over to CPSU Hierarchy on completion of the ongoing DPCs which are in advanced stages. A presentation on CPSU Hierarchy will be given to the CMD in the last week of July. We demanded CPSU Hierarchy implementation w.e.f 01.01.2017, protecting all the ongoing promotions. We are trying to get it approved in the next Board meeting in Sept/October. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation will ensure that all the Executives are promoted to the next grade, upto AGM grade, in a time bound manner independent of the number of vacancies. 

e) Approval of HR plan: After lot of discussions, on 12.07.2017, Restg cell made a presentation of the draft HR plan to the MC of BSNL board. Since all the HR issues are pending in the Board due to non finalization of HR plan, we are strongly pursuing it so that HR plan also will be approved in the next Board meeting. E1+5 increments, SDE RR, CAO post diversion, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation, increase in Superannuation fund, E1A/E2A notionally from 01.10.2000 for Civil/Elect/TF/PA/PS etc, 1st TBP etc will be approved by Board only after finalization of HR plan.

On approval of HR plan, posts in all the cadres will be drastically reduced due to large scale closure of landlines. So along with approval of HR plan, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy also to implemented, otherwise all the functional promotions will be stopped.

Calls from the CHQ and Circle body ..

Joint Forum of BSNL Executives’ Associations comprising of SNEA, AIGETOA, BEA, BASE(India), BSNLOA and TSOA served notice to Secretary, DoT and CMD/BSNL Demands: See the Letter to Secretary, DoT and Letter to CMD/BSNL

Our next course of Protest and action Program are as:

1. 25th, 26th and 27th April 2017 72 hours relay hunger strike at SSA and Circle Headquarters, Sanchar Bhavan/BSNL Headquarters.

2. 28th April 2017: One day Mass Casual Leave by all Executives of BSNL.

3. 1st May 2017 onwards: Indefinite relay hunger strike at SSA, Circle and BSNL Headquarters and Work According to Rule along with Complete Non-Cooperation till resolution of the issue.

4. The program shall be intensified further from 10th May 2017 onwards if they will be reluctant on this burning issue.

Joint Forum of BSNL Executives’ Associations served notice to Secretary, DoT and CMD/BSNL demanding settlement of the following demands by 10th May, 2017

1. Immediate Issuance of Promotion Orders from JTO (T) to SDE (T) under DPC/LDCE quota and issuance of Promotion Orders in all other cadres, in all the wings under both quotas.

2. Extending 30 percent Superannuation Benefit to the BSNL recruited employees along with revision in date of implementation from the beginning.

3. Extending initial basic of Rs. 22820/- to the Executives recruited post 01.01.2007.

4. Uniform 1st Time Bound Promotion in Four Years for all Executives.

5. Extending E1A and E2A scales notionally to JTO/SDEs of Civil/Electrical/Arch/TF wings and PA/PS cadres w.e.f. 01.10.2000.

6. Scrapping of ongoing DR-DGM recruitment and DR-DGM/MT RRs.

7. Resolution of other long pending HR issues.

Comrades, it is a Do or Die battle for us. On pay scales DoT already issued PO and we have to mount tremendous pressure to reverse the order. For the seniors, it is their responsibility to protect the cadre and its dignity. What struggle they had done in 1986, 1996 and 2002 for the up-gradation of the cadres remind us how important this issue for all of us. If we allow demotion of JTO and SDE cadre, tomorrow same fate may follow for other cadres also. The status of the company also will be degraded by the lowering of pay scales. For the youngsters, they have to understand that their pay and status is going down for ever. They should not allow the office bearers to be complacent and should mount pressure at each level by fully participating in the struggle. They have to take the lead in this crucial struggle to shake the DoT establishment. This will be the last opportunity for all of us to get this prestigious pay scale for the cadres, for the post 2007 recruited executives and the future. Similarly other HR issues also to be addressed without further delay.
