Kind Attention All Direct Recruits Executives - Only You Can Help Yourself
AIGETOA is the only platform to raise the voice of direct recruit executives but AIGETOA name alone cannot help you to get your rights. It is only you who can help yourself. We are very thankful that some persons have started raising the voice for the issues related to direct recruits however in view of the history; there is a dire need to brain storm the basic before joining hands with them.
Standard pay scale of E2 to JTO/JAO: Pay scale of JTO/JAO should have been E2 from the inception of BSNL but same was downgraded to E1A to compensate for the pension contribution of absorbed JTO/JAO and the same was agreed by these so called messiahs. There is no hurdle to extend E2 pay scale to direct recruits JTO/JAO but striking for E2 pay scale to all JTO/JAO is nothing but just to create pressure to the management so that management may not extend the E2 pay scale to direct recruits. Professionally qualified direct recruits are entitled for even E3 pay scale from 01.01.2007 in lieu of upgradation of engineering graduate in Government of India and other CPSEs but the same has never been demanded for the reasons best known to them.
30% superannuation benefit: The recommendation of 30% defined contribution towards superannuation benefit in CPSEs is applicable to those who are not covered under defined benefit of government pension. Some persons are demanding the same for direct recruits through their websites but internally they are forcing the management to compare the CTC on contribution towards retirement benefit of direct recruits and absorbed executives.
CPSE cadre hierarchy/no external MT, DGM: On one side, they are crying for implementation of CPSE cadre hierarchy in BSNL in respect of career progression of executives and other side they are forcing the management to degrade the bench mark and no weightage for qualification which is leading to unnecessary delay. Professionally qualified direct recruits JTO/JAO recruited through All India open competition is already MT who should have been the succession of top management in BSNL but these do not allow them to get their entitlement. They are forcing the management to put us below so that there can be scope for management to make another MT recruitment ignoring already recruited professional qualified JTO/JAO.
Executives cannot demand, in fact there cannot be any negotiation/bargaining in respect of pay, career and retirement benefit as these are finalized by Government of India through DPE. Executives can only force the management to implement the DPE orders/guidelines. All the three issues mentioned above are entitlement of Direct recruits executives in BSNL but it is demand for others. Some persons are trying to insert their individual demands in between our entitlements not to gain anything but just to create hurdles. It is really painful to see that some of the direct recruits are being part of creating hurdle on their own entitlements. This association appeals all the direct recruits to first analyze and then decide.
This association appeals to every direct recruit to please stand together on the platform of AIGETOA for your own cause. Donít think that some of the direct recruits can enable you to get your entitlements. Donít think that somebody will come to invite you. Some of the representatives are putting their day and night, blood and sweats. Support them who are fighting for your own cause by extending your hand before they get exhausted.
All DS and Circle Representatives are requested to go through the presentation submitted by AIGETOA to HLC and submit the same to your SSA/Circle head. Try to explain them about the issues raised by AIGETOA by having personal one to one meeting. Click here for submission by AIGETOA to the HLC & Various Annexure

Subject : Adverse Comments by CGM MP Telecom Circle Sh N K Yadav openly against the CHQ Leadership of AIGETOA, Acting as Virtual Spokesperson of Some Group
Adverse Comments by CGM MP Telecom Circle Sh N K Yadav openly against the CHQ Leadership of AIGETOA, Acting as Virtual Spokesperson of Some Group :
On 6th March 2014, CGM MP Telecom Circle Sh N K Yadav has made some adverse comments openly against the CHQ leadership of AIGETOA in the development meeting held at Indore. DPE has ordered 30% superannuation benefit to CPSEís executives and many CPSEs have already implemented the same but, he has also told that ďeven god can not extend superannuation benefit to executives working in any PSUĒ. He has acted as Judge and gave his ruling that pension is given only in government Deptt and PSUs donít create superannuation funds for pension. He said that it is AIGETOA CHQ leaders who have unnecessary put up this issue and they donít have any knowledge. He has appealed direct recruits in open meeting where all the executives of Indore region were present, to immediately expel the CHQ leaders and make some retired employee as leader of AIGETOA. He has also warned that no circle will give any privilege to AIGETOA if same leadership continues and association will be finished. We really salute the knowledge level of Honíble CGM MP and request him to just go through Internet and search whether the PSUs are offering the pension or not.
Referendum rule of association verification is already issued and referendum process is on. Such bad remark against AIGETOA leadership in open meeting is not at all expected from any circle head and the reasons for doing this negative publicity against this association will have to be explained by CGM MP. It is very much clear that CGM MP is singing in the same tune in which our friendly association sings to all direct recruits which gives us all reasons to believe that he is acting as virtual spokesperson of such elements. CHQ AIGETOA has sought apology against such bad remarks by the CGM for which CGM has refused. CGM MP Telecom circle has been acting vindictive against direct recruits of MP. Circle since some time back. He has taken personal interest in salary cut and followed all the SSA heads telephonically to cut the salary. Under pressure of CGM, all SSA head have cut the salary without even following the basic guidelines and rules. After long strike by AIGETOA in the month of July-Aug-2013, corporate office has issued order for online transfer of EPF and directed CGMs to purchase digital signature but the same CGM could not ensure this and no letters/DO/Verbal orders to any SSA head was ever issued as the same was beneficial to the Direct Recruits. The swiftness with which CGM acts on the BSNL CO orders for salary cut turns into lethargy when the same BSNL CO issues any order in the interest of DRs. He has issued vindictive transfer order of our All India President, helped in serving the charge sheets for raising the voice against wrongful acts in transfer and posting of direct recruits. He has also threatened direct recruits to see in the future transfer and posting.
Enough is now enough; AIGETOA MP Telecom Circle has decided for peaceful protest against such act of CGM MP. Telecom Circle. All members of Bhopal are requested to gather at Circle Office Bhopal at 1:00 pm on 07/03/2014. CGM has to apologize for his unsolicited comments against CHQ leaders, he has to refund salary immediately which has been cut without following any rules, he has to immediately order for purchase of digital signature for online EPF transfer, CGM MP will have to explain under what rule the salary has been cut based on mere absentee statement, CGM MP has to explain whether the salary of executives are being prepared on the basis of absentee statement and if so whether every monthís absentee statement for all executives right from top to bottom is being sent to DDOs, CGM MP will have to explain the motive behind bringing all the Direct recruits on road with such type of irrational salary cut, CGM MP will have to explain whether this blatant violation of rules while cutting the salary has resulted into fixing the responsibilities for the lapses, CGM MP has to explain the reasons behind not endorsing the No Work No Pay orders of BSNL CO for the Dharna Call on 6th March by our very friendly association, CGM MP will have to explain why he has interfered into internal working of any association and for whose benefit etc. The Questions are many and we will try to get all the answers.
Friends!! Now itís high time to prove that such type of vindictive actions will not dent the membership base of AIGETOA. Itís high time to prove that even high profile spokes persons cannot win even a single membership for our adversaries. We will have to prove that all the bad objects in the path of the DRs shall be dealt like that only so that it may act as deterrent to others also.
