TALKS FAIL - AUAB DECIDES TO GO AHEAD WITH THE STRIKE
Posted on 16 Feb 2019
Talks fail - AUAB decides to go ahead with the strike :
Today the CMD BSNL and Director HR met the AUAB leaders. The AUAB representatives told the Management that, they are prepared to accept 3rd Pay Revision with 5% fitment, as offered earlier by the DoT. However, they demanded that this commitment should be given in writing by the DoT, so that the AUAB can consider deferment of the strike. Even this demand of the AUAB is not accepted. Further, the DoT has also diluted it's earlier assurance to give DA neutralisation. The DoT is demanding that the AUAB should call off the strike, in view of the terror attack in Pulwama. The Secretary, Telecom, has put a condition that she would not meet the AUAB leaders, unless they call off the strike. Immediately after the meeting with the BSNL Management, all the General Secretaries of the AUAB met and decided to go ahead with the strike. The AUAB has also decided to exempt J&K circle from the strike, to ensure maintenance of services, in the backdrop of the terror attack. The AUAB requests all the circle and district unions to organise the strike powerfully.
UPDATE ON LEGAL PROCEDINGS ON JTO TO SDE SCF PROMOTIONS
Posted on 16 Feb 2019
Update on legal procedings on JTO to SDE SCF Promotions :
The charge sheet proceedings stay was heard at Hon HC, Kerala today. The management side mentioned about the review petitions pending for hearing and Hon Court directed to hear all the petitions together and posted the same to 25/3/2019 along with Review petitions. It is learnt that the reviews are filed by BSNL, AIBSNLEA & some Members of SNEA.
These reviews were filed (despite the fact that), after a wrong implementation by the BSNL management by executing promotions on 15.06.2018, where the absorbee executives from DoT (including thousands of absorbees who got JTO promotions after BSNL formation with back dated YOR). Absorbed executives only promoted (even who were joined as JTO from 2001- 2014 as JTO) and not even a single BSNL Recruit JTO - against the very spirit for interim promotions of Hon HC judgment dated 05.06.18.
We can't find the rationale for the review/clarification on judgment which were not raised/not known to the management, when one side PRs promotions executed in an over night ?? The answer is simple, These 'N' number of review petitions are made simply to delay the justified promotions to BSNL Recruits through SCF quota.

MESSAGE FROM GS
Posted on 13 Feb 2019
Message from GS:
Dear all, Lot of panic has been spread in the employees due to recent media reports and social media campaign. Sudden sense of panic has creeped up in all minds and specially the BSNL recruits keeping in view the number of years we have to spend in BSNL. Our bread and butter comes from BSNL and we can not let it send to back stage or be closed. As per our information, there is no such closure proposal as of now and in all probabilities, a revival package will be in offering . AIGETOA is in favour of implementing VRS and it should be offered to all employees above 50 years of age. We are also in support of reducing retirement age to 58 if government considers it necessary to run BSNL. For us survival of BSNL is a must and all the issues come secondary.
In the recently concluded CEC meeting at Jammu, CHQ team had an extensive discussion on the revival issues and our HR issues. On the revival plan, we will support any move of government which is for the betterment of BSNL and its sustainability. We have already submitted our official view on the matter to IIM team constituted for revival of BSNL and we will be submitting it to other higher ups in administrative ministry including PMO. On the HR issues of BSNL, specially the Promotion issues and MT issue, CHQ has decided to go for Organisational means if management does not come for corrective action immediately. Though our battle in Hon'ble court of law will persist but we are not willing to wait any more with respect to our long pending promotion issues and MT recruitment issue.
We hereby appeal all BSNL Recruits to get united and speak in one voice. Remember we have everything to lose if BSNL fails to survive. We all will have to ensure that BSNL remains safe, progressive and on the path of revival.

UPDATE ON AUAB MEETING
Posted on 01 Feb 2019
Update on AUAB Meeting :
AUAB meeting was held today at 11:30 AM. GS AIGETOA strongly expressed resentment on behalf of all BSNL recruits for casual handling of 2nd PRC pending benefits issue by management . GS categorically stated that under such scenario, it will be difficult for us to be in AUAB if BR issues are not handled in a proper way. GS also raised that in the letter submitted yesterday wrt anomalies of Pension, it is mentioned that pension contribution will be given on 15 Percent Fitment calculation. In such case, 15 Percent Fitment should also be the basis for calculation for Superannuation Contribution. It was informed by the AUAB leaders representing the issue before DoT that on E2-E3, additional Secretary has proposed a meeting in next week where this issue will be discussed threadbare to take it towards resolution. All the constituents also told that they are very serious towards the pending 2nd PRC benefits issue and nothing will be let loose on any aspects. Standard Pay scale of E2 n E3 shall continue to be discussed and for SAB, BSNL management shall be asked for expeditious resolution. On the confusion with regard to the differential treatment of pension contribution and Superannuation Contribution, it was decided by all Leaders of AUAB that contribution towards Superannuation Fund will be based on same Fitment formula which will be used for Pension Contribution. GS AIGETOA once again emphasised that AIGETOA believes in inclusive progress of all but if at any point of time, BSNL Recruits issue will be compromised, we will not hesitate in coming out of all the activities and will choose our individual path.

As regards the 3rd Pay Revision, in today's meeting, the DoT side offered Pay Revision with 5% fitment. If the AUAB accepted that, then this issue would be placed for the approval of the Digital Commission ( erstwhile Telecom Commission) meeting, to be held on 05-02-2019, and that thereafter it would be taken for the approval of the Cabinet, said the DoT side. The AUAB stated that 5% fitment is very low and that they could not accept it.

DRACONIAN MT RULE IS OUT TO DESTROY YOUR CAREER AND GROWTH IN BSNL
Posted on 27 Jan 2019
Draconian MT Rule is out to destroy your career and growth in BSNL
A time to question your leaderships, wherever you are associated:
It is a matter of great concern for all right minded people that the MT Ghost is again out to destroy your already shrinking opportunities in BSNL. On one side, promotions for BSNL Recruits are not being given and on the other side, BRs are being pushed in DoT era again by the BSNL Management in connivance with the so-called recognized association to bulldoze your aspiration and motivation in this company. If you will go through the flashback, just recall how none of the JTOs/SDEs were even reaching to the post of Adhoc DET while people joining at ADT (today's MT) were reaching to apex of their career in DoT era. The current MT recruitment process is similar to that and is nothing but old wine in a new bottle. It is going to stop all your future avenues by snatching your right of promotion and giving it to the handful of external people looking to rule over you again by proxy setting.
We all know that this MT (Internal) can't be executed in standalone mode while MT (External) is the other part of same MT RR 2013. Management will definitely start recruiting MT (External) citing legal hurdles and non-availability of the candidates from the internal mode. The MSRR 2009 clearly directs preparation of STS Inter-se-seniority list in 1:1 format from gradation list of SCF DE (promoted from SDE/AO) and MT (External & Internal) for the purpose of DGM promotion i.e. 50 percent of the DGMs posts are to be kept reserved for MT quota. It is expected that a stage will soon reach when only DEs promoted from MT quota will occupy all top slots as was being done earlier in DoT Era. Once higher positions will be occupied by the MTs, it will force all the SCF DEs getting promoted from SDE/AO to stagnate at DET and rest at SDE level and superannuate from the very same post except for few lucky chaps. Are you happy with this development? Definitely No !!!
If you dig deeper into this, then the sinister design of the proclaimed corners will be more clearly visible. The first MT, if recruited this year, is going to become DGM either at the end of year 2026 or at the beginning of year 2027. So till 2027, all the DGMs post will be there in platter for the proclaimed ones (Only Senior Batches - Rest all will stagnate) with no takers from Fast Track quota. By that time, all the so called well wishers of the young blood will leave department and the one, who is going to remain in department, will be the BSNL Recruits and executives of later year batches of DOT.
So, Friends, this MT recruitment exercise is a process intended to kill the careers of all BSNL Recruit JTOs and all the SDEs belonging to List 8, List 9 and future lists. This is what, the so-called recognized representatives are doing to the executive fraternity and we all need to oppose it full throttle.
If BSNL Recruits and other executives want to come out of this never ending waiting list to be promoted beyond DE level, then only way is to ask for their "Rightful Internal Fast Track Promotion consisting of 50 percent of DE Level posts reserved for qualified , meritorious and performing candidates" (Earlier 2730 posts and now after 4200 more posts have been created, so ideally internal fast track quota should be of 4830 Posts and since 4200 posts have gone to SCF quota, therefore Internal Fast Track quota at STS should be 6930 (4200 plus 2730). Remember, MT is not a fast track promotion methodology but a new recruitment exercise, which envisages creation of a new cadre just like previous DoT era and will push the careers of all executives towards doomsday. We all will have to understand that without scrapping of MT RRs and MT Recruitment; internal fast track promotion methodology can never come. We all have to appreciate that at least 6930 Posts are to be made available to the meritorious, qualified and performing executives as per the provisions of MS RR in DE Level through Internal Fast Track mode and in the same ratio, DGMs and GMs post should be increased).
So, every executive must ask their leadership about the Possible factors and trade off for which their dreams and careers have been compromised and why the leaders have kept a tacit silence on this burning issue. Some have even gone to the extent of openly supporting management in this and are doing rounds to keep management informed about the new cases filed on MT and suggestions with regard to handling of the cases and completing the MT Recruitment process in a lightening speed.
AIGETOA has been fighting this MT menace since 2008 and successfully defended and will continue to do so but the others are weakening our fight to protect your right. However, we are firm on our vision, we will not allow this MT at any cost.

UPDATE ON MT EXAMINATION
Posted on 25 Jan 2019
Flash News : In a case filed by one of the activists for AIGETOA as the proclaimed SENA calls us, Hon'ble court has directed BSNL to extend the last date of filling up of MT registration forms to a date beyond next date of hearing on the aforesaid case. The next date of hearing is 7th February 2019. On next date, we are very sure of favourable Judgement quashing the recruitment notification because of BSNL not following the Hon'ble Court Directions.
Friends, AIGETOA is trying its best possible efforts to stop this MT Recruitment either through court or through organisational means. At any cost, we will not let management and their spokespersons to put our careers into jeopardy by imposing this lateral recruitment on our heads. Friends, Come what may, we will not let this recruitment happen.
We once again re-emphasise the need for unity amongst BSNL Recruits and a single Umbrella for all BRs. Being united is the only solution for all our problems.
UPDATE ON JTO TO SDE THROUGH SCF QUOTA & MT
Posted on 24 Jan 2019
Update on JTO to SDE through SCF quota & MT :
GS AIGETOA Ravi Shil Verma along with Vice Presidents Shri B K Mehta and Shri V K Singh met GM SR and expressed the resentment of BSNL Recruits over the delay in issuing the promotions of JTO to SDE through SCF quota. We emphasised that it has been brought to the notice of all by the recognised association that management is not going ahead with the promotions as some applicants have filed the contempt case against management. We sought the authenticity of such statements which have been repeatedly reflected on the website of the so called recognised association by quoting the discussions with management. GM SR categorically denied any such thought from management side and informed the confusion over own merit and on merit in implementation of reservation has yet not been cleared and the reference sent to one of the ASGs has been returned back without any opinion. ASG has directed BSNL to get the opinion from SG/ASG who was representing government side in Hon'ble Supreme Court when Judgement on reservation was delivered. The needful is being done. BSNL has further sent the reference to DoPT also and a team from BSNL shall be personally pursuing at DoP&T for clarification. GM SR said that they are expecting that within next 10-12 days, opinion on Own Merit and ON Merit issue will be received. So friends contrary to the claims posted on website of the so called recognised association, the fact is that clarification on the reservation issue has yet not been received is the main show stopper in the way of promotions.
In the meanwhile, The execution OA & contempt hearing on 1:1 JTO to SDE promotion was heard at Hon CAT, Ernakulam today. As there was one month stay for contempt proceedings ftom Hon HC EKM, the proceedings are adjourned to 21/2/19.
The review petitions filed at Hon HC by some members of another associations and management is listed for hearing on 15/2/2019.
The SAB from DoJ for BSNL recruits posted for next hearing on 31/1/19 at Hon CAT, Ernakulam. Surprisingly the same enthusiasm for impleading is not shown by the members of said associations there.
On the MT issue, association side expressed its firm opposition to the lateral recruitment and informed GM SR that under any circumstances, AIGETOA will not allow this recruitment to go through as either internal or external, this recruitment is going to kill the career prospects of thousands and thousands of BSNL Recruits and will force them to retire at SDE/DE level.
GS AIGETOA told GM SR that if management does not comes out with issuance of promotion orders and withdrawal of MT notification, association shall be compelled to launch agitational action programs and for that management solely will be responsible. GM SR assured to look into the matter and apprise Director HR about the resentment prevailing in the minds of BSNL Recruits as expressed by AIGETOA.
THE PROCLAIMED SENA- FRIENDS OR FOES- BSNL RECRUITS SHOULD ANALYZE AND DECIDE :
Posted on 23 Jan 2019
The Proclaimed SENA- Friends or Foes- BSNL Recruits should analyze and decide :
Hon'ble High Court, Kerala has stayed the Proceedings of contempt in 1:1 SCF Promotions for one month. It is learnt that management has gone with the plea that they were ready to execute the promotion order for full compliance of the Hon'ble Court's Judgment but CAT Bench of Ernakulum has not given them the time to do so and there are procedural lapses in the contempt proceedings. Accordingly, based on that, it appears that we may expect the promotion orders soon. The OA filed for execution of Hon'ble High Court Judgment is also posted at Hon CAT for hearing on 24th January 2019. Lets wait for the management's submission in the Hon'ble court of Law and further actions.
In the meanwhile, we are really astonished to read the update on the website of the proclaimed SENA where they are virtually busy defending themselves and abusing BSNL recruits who are fighting for their rights. Below are our direct questions to them:
1. Who/ What stopped management from executing the blanket 1:1 promotions including for BRs in June 2018.
2. Why the judgment was partially executed & Why a Partial AIEL made without any BR JTOs.
3. Why ST List was not executed when it was statutory for DPCs.
4. If there was any problem for BRs DPC, who resolved that problem and how.
5. What/ Who made stalling/ delaying the process of promotions by On/ Own Merit issue when management was ready to execute the promotions by the end of December-2018.
6. Why minutes after this Own Merit and On Merit saga started, they immediately started vouching for CPSU hierarchy. Two days before they were claiming credit for DPC promotions.
If they have answers to above questions then how they can blame petitioners, who are BRs, fighting for the rights of BSNL recruits. This is nothing but their tactics just to befool their members to keep their membership intact, which is already in down churn.
The fact of the matter is that right from the day one, these types of people have indulged themselves in mischief mongering against BSNL Recruits. They misguided the management taking the guise of their membership strength and advantage of some of their cronies fitted in the channel who helped them by misinterpreting the judgment before higher ups. Their sinister game plan was to impose the half cooked CPSU hierarchy from 01.07.2018 after ensuring majority of their executives, who were absorbed from DoT, gets their promotions in JTO to SDE and SDE to DE by 30.06.2018. The seats were upgraded without following the norms and every body forgot BSNL Recruits except AIGETOA. It was the fight of AIGETOA, that DPC process was initiated before 30.06.2018, which failed their malicious design of imposing half cooked CPSU hierarchy on the BSNL Recruits waiting for promotions from JTO to SDE. Everybody can go through the ever changing stands on to their website and ensure the authenticity of our statements. They knew fully well that CPSU once implemented will be stayed very next day as it has many basic lacunae, which will put the careers of the left out executives, which are mostly BSNL recruits in a state of complete jeopardy for next many years. Still they tried to impose it on BSNL Recruits without making the corrections.
They are calling BRs who are fighting for their rights as egotists while the actual fact is that they believe only in pampering the management and misguiding the management vociferously. How an association can call the persons fighting for their rights as egotists. Instead of pressing management to issue the orders which is pending for BR fraternity, they are trying to find faults in activities of other associations and they call themselves as authorized representatives of BSNL Executives. When they can force management to go for contemptuous action, what stops them from forcing management to do the right thing? They should ask this question from themselves, why it took so long for management to file this affidavit, why they did not file it in July 2018 when contempt hearing was on. Actually, management filed the affidavit only when it was proved beyond doubt before Hon court that the partial execution was a faulty step and Hon'ble Court observed them guilty of contempt.
Still, while we are busy pursuing and finding the way out for promotions, not learning from the past, the Proclaimed ones have again engaged in Mudslinging just to befool the BSNL Recruits. Their efforts to include Supernumerary JTOs in the list made to deny promotional opportunities to 2012 LICE JTOs, speaks volumes about their concern for the BSNL Recruits. Their attempt to keep the competitive quota people out from the reckoning in promotions to AGMs and DGMs speaks bulk about their concern for relatively young executives and the open partiality with BRs and DoT batches of later years. The real fact is because of these legacy SENAs of BSNL, all relatively younger executives (either BSNL Recruits or the competitive quota people) are suffering like anything.
In the same way, they are justifying MT Recruitment, calling it a fast track promotion method while they are well aware of the fact that after failing maximum through internal exam, external MT recruitment will be started. This is also a surety that once internal MT goes through, external recruitment will be initiated citing provisions of MTRRs and non-availability of sufficient qualified candidates. Not only that, but by accepting E3 Scale recruitment for MTs they are in a way trying to close the doors for E2/E3 scale implementation prospects also. Even, they are trying to derail the organizational/legal measures to stop this lateral recruitment above JTOs/JAOs. How much more will they befool the executives. Same thing they did on SAB also. When management agreed for 8 percent, they started circulating an RTI, which stated that BSNL recruits are getting, much more than what is being projected. Same thing they did for 22820 also by raising a demand which was not at all practicable and justified. They are the basic reason behind denial of the promotions to BSNL recruits, from both in JTO as well as SDE grade and they are the one behind all the problems which BSNL Recruits are facing - be it Pay (22820, E2/E3), be it Pension (SAB pending) or be it Promotions (JTO-SDE, List 8 & 9).
Their only Job is to misguide, mismanage and derail the benefits what ever is to be given to BSNL Recruits and the Competitive quota people. They should remain rest assured that no self-respecting executive in BSNL will buy their argument except few of their cronies.
As far as AIGETOA is concerned, we are following our course of action and we know that management cannot withhold these promotions for long. If the proclaimed SENA wants to take the credit, they may take. We are concerned with only promotions. Let the Proclaimed SENA remain happy with their ego.
But they should remember one thing; AIGETOA will not allow any harm to the prospects of BSNL Recruits. Our determination and firm resolve to fight for the rights will outweigh their sinister plans. Their malicious and malaise designs will be defeated. Justice can be delayed but not denied.
