GS (I/C) along with CHQ SP, CFS & ACS Bihar met with Director (CM) on his his visit to Patna on 17.06.2019. He was welcomed on his first visit to Patna after assuming the charge of the Director (CM). We apprised about severe crisis in maintaining the BTS and other services due to acute shortage of basic support. The BTS availability has gone down to 60-70% at many locations including Bihar primarily due to power issue. The commercial power are being snapped on dues and engines are not running due to no fuel, forcing shut down of the system. This is pushing BSNL Circles further in trouble as proper fund is not coming to maintain the services. We apprised that this will further derail the revenue position and hence it will affect the prospect of BSNL. Because it's not only BTS facing the heat but the lease line, FTTH, Enterprise Customers, Broadband, Bharat Net services are also worsening in want of fund. This may shake the faith of many stakeholders and hence immediate remedial measures needs to be taken restore the services and confidence of our esteemed customers and channel partners.
The Director(CM) informed that the situation on financial part is not good and BSNL Board are trying it's best to improve the situation by meeting DOT regularly for funds. Our new Hon'ble Minister, Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad ji has also been appraised. The Director informed that the situation will improve soon and we all have to be together in tough time and it will be over very soon. Click here for photos

The GS (I/C), Sri Wasi Ahmad visited the Corporate Office, New Delhi from 29th-31st May'2019 for pursuance of various issues and association meetings with various levels in the management and also to held parley with the AIGETOA Team to see preparedness of upcoming AIC of AIGETOA scheduled on 11-13th Jul'2019. The details of meetings held are as following:
Meeting with CMD:
CHQ Team of AIGETOA met CMD BSNL and discussed the issue of JTO to SDE promotions. It was apprised to him that due inordinate delay in issue of JTO to SDE promotion, huge unrest is creeping into the minds of youngsters. We discussed the ongoing court case at Ernakulum on various aspects and stressed the need that it shouldn't be used as roadblock in the promotion. It was also emphasized that no stay is at Ernakulum on the promotion but department is lingering on the pretext of legal without valid reason. The CMD assured to look into it to resolve and also asked us to further deliberate the issue with the PGM (Pers), Corporate Office, New Delhi.
We also discussed that despite categorical assurance from management for increase in the quantum of Superannuation Benefit (SAB) by another 3% by 31st Mar'2019, the same is still awaited. It is worth to note here that only 5% SAB is being contributed by BSNL at present where as AIGETOA is demanding to scale it to 12% w.e.f. 01.01.2007 as per the 2nd PRC Recommendations. We also apprised the CMD regarding inefficient handling of the LICE held by Recruitment Section and requested him to take necessary action in this regard.
Meeting with Director (CM):
Thereafter, the team CHQ met with Shri S.P. Tripathi Ji, Director (CM) who is also looking after the works of HR at corporate office and had an elaborate discussion on the issues of JTO to SDE promotion under DPC, notification of next LDCE for JTO to SDE promotion, publication of SDE provisional seniority list-9 as per Rota Quota/revised RR, issuance of SDE final seniority list-8, implementation of Mediclaim Policy, Uniform Deputation policy for all executives. On the JTO to SDE promotion in DPC quota, the Director assured that all necessary actions shall be taken to ensure promotion. He said management is not averse to suggestions of association to resolve the issue and said whatever is required from admin side; BSNL will do to end the deadlock. He also asked the association to extend cooperation in resolving the issues, where we clarified that no court has stayed the process, so the department should move ahead with the promotion without prejudice. Although, association is always ready to settle the issue, if any in the larger interest of the BR fraternity. As far the SDE seniority list is concerned, he gave a patience hearing and agreed to the proposal of association for publication of provisional seniority list-9 and circulation of final seniority list-8. We apprised that SDE RR has already been revised by MC and so list-9 should be prepared on the basis of Rota-Quota. He told that he is aware of the subject and will discuss the matter further with the concerned unit about the methodology and thereafter issue suitable direction to start preparing the seniority list-9. He also agreed to issue final seniority list-8 for circulation.
On mediclaim policy implementation, he has instructed PGM Admin to finalize the same. He said BSNL is willing to bear the expenditure of CGHS policy as onetime fee, if executives are willing to shift to CGHS facility and he has instructed PGM admin to explore this also. On deputation, he apprised that a uniform policy has to be finalized by the BSNL in consultation with all stake holders keeping in mind the interest of the department as well as the employee both. He told that discussions are going on and also asked us to submit our points to be taken care while deciding on the subject. He assured that the deputation policy should be uniform and not on preferential basis. The association will be submitting the letter on deputation very shortly.
Meeting with PGM (Pers):
The meeting with PGM (Pers) held on 31st May'2019 after his joining to the office. A detailed deliberation was held with the PGM(Pers) on the issue of promotion of JTO to SDE as well as ongoing Ernakulum Court Case. He was also apprised that the promotion should be issued as no stay is on the promotion by Hon'ble Court. He appraised that department has filed a review petition in the Hon'ble Court and waiting for outcome of the hearing which is about to be held by 20th June'2019. A detail discussion was held to end the deadlock in present scenario and issue of the promotion order, which will continue in the first week of June. We apprised PGM(Pers) that management should take cognizance of the anger and turmoil developing in the minds of executives and the same are increasing day by day due to non issuance of promotion. Any loss of industrial peace due to this reason will be solely responsibility of the management as it may snow boil in a major confrontation on the issue. We still believe that the management will take reasonable initiative to end the impasse to issue JTO to SDE promotion order in larger interest of the department & industrial peace.
Meeting with the AIC Coordination Committee:
A meeting was also held with the AIC conduction
coordination committee members at Corporate Office New Delhi, whose chairman is
Shri Shailesh Yadav. The venue details as collected by the committee and other
parameters about holding of AIC were deliberated in detail. The venue detail was
not finalized and it was advised to the team to further fine tune it and work on
other aspects of the AIC simultaneously. Shri Ravi Shil Verma GS-AIGETOA was
requested to supervise the whole process for conduction of the AIC along with
the Team assigned the works. A tentative budget has been framed which will be

UPDATES ON VARIOUS ISSUES :
Posted on 30 May 2019
Update on JTO to SDE DPC
The review petitions filed by BSNL management, AIBSNLEA and activists of SNEA listed for hearing at Hon'ble High Court, Kerala on 27.05.2019. The case postponed to 20.06.2019 as one of the judges recused from hearing the case. It will come up before a new bench expectedly on 20.06.2019. This association had already mentioned about vested interested sections, who filed the review after executing promotions for only PR Quota in JTO to SDE cadre and that too by giving back date of seniority. The reviews by them were sought on Training Centre Marks and Back Dated YoR occupancy of absorbed JTOs.
Facts on Training Centre Marks:
The Judgment dated 5/6/18 has never differentiated between PR/DRs while commenting about the applicability of training center marks for Seniority fixation. If this is confusion and needs clarification, then it has to be for both section of JTOs (i.e. both DRs and PRs). Astonishingly, the promotions which was executed on 15/6/18, PR JTOs seniority were also graded with training center marks only. The truth is that training centre marks is not at all a dispute on the 1:1 case. The training Centre marks is for deciding INTRA-SE-seniority within the quota i.e. within the same type of JTOs. i.e. within DRs or within PRs. On the other hand the dispute was on INTER-Se-Seniority i.e. in 1:1 ratio of seniority between PR & DR JTO (as per JTO RRs which envisages 50% each for DR & PR JTOs) which is the basic guiding factor by DoP&T. This fixation of 1:1 fixation between DR JTO and PR JTO is the main cause of court case, as the same has not been followed by BSNL.
So it is quite clear that review on Training Centre Marks criterion is not at all required as no body has challenged that aspect. It is an intentional picture created by some sections who doesn't want promotions to happen for the want of a non-existent CPSU hierarchy implementation, which is not going to come for years as BSNL has itself filed an affidavit before Hon'ble CAT that the policy has yet not been finalized.
Back dated Year of Recruitment (YoR) occupancy of PR JTOs:
This is the main reason for review, where thousands of Absorbee JTOs who have joined in JTO cadre even much later to direct recruit JTOs, were awarded with higher seniority and without following 1:1 as envisaged, even in recruitment rules / DoPT guidelines. With final judgement from Hon HC, Kerala this matter was already cleared, but due to the vested efforts of some group, the 1:1 principle was never followed and promotion kept on happening in PR quota making BSNL recruits devoid of their rights. For this dilly dallying and misguidance by some sections with the help of their foray into their legal team, BSNL was forced to execute an order which finally resulted into decision by the court as guilty of contempt action.
Thus it's ample clear that the unfounded review is automatically heading to what it is intended, and the plan made by review petitioners like AIBSNLEA and SNEA activists are now running on the head of career progression of thousands of BSNL recruits.
Now, crocodile tears are shed by those who mislead management and trapped management into contempt of direction and ruined the career prospects of thousands of BSNL Recruits. Earlier, they could succeed in surrendering many posts of SDE and their plan was to restrict the promotion of BSNL Recruits. However they failed in their design as AIGETOA pursued tirelessly to include the current vacancies also for promotions which were vacated by those getting promoted else their sinister design was to restrict the promotions to earlier available vacancies and not the current one. But our alertness and persuasion prevented them from getting any further damage to BR community.
Friends, stating this, we are not shelving our responsibility to ensure promotions but just trying to apprise you about the roles played by these so called messiah of executives. AIGETOA is exploring all options and will come up with firm action plan if DPC for JTO to SDE promotions are not ensured soon. We request our circle team to remain prepared for any eventuality to seek justice for your brothers and sisters on any cost. We also request management to utilize the opportunity and settled the long pending promotion of JTO to SDE immediately as patience is running out and anger is reaching to its zenith.
STAY ON MT RESULT CONTINUES TILL FINALISATION OF COURT CASE AT HON'BLE CAT CHANDIGARH:
Posted on 28 May 2019
Stay on MT result continues till finalisation of Court Case at Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh:
Today 4 court cases filed by AIGETOA as an Association and its members with regard to MT case came up for hearing at Hon'ble Chandigarh CAT today. BSNL advocate argued that reservation and vacancy year concept does not apply as it is a Direct Recruitment. Our lawyer argued that in PWD reservation case, BSNL has given a submission that it is a promotion case. So contradictory submissions are being given by BSNL in different cases. After detailed arguments Hon'ble court granted an absolute stay on the publication of result for MT examination till the outcome of the case is reached. BSNL is not allowed to publish the result. However Hon'ble court gave BSNL a little relief as they contended that due to delay, lot of money is going to agency that the agency can compile the result but the same shall have to be kept in sealed cover and can not be published. The next date of hearing is 30th July 2019.
Friends claimants can be many, but the fact is that meticulous handling of the issue by our legal team has kept our fight for right secure. We don't talk big but our actions speak for ourselves.
