AIGETOA writes to BSNL Management for re-opening of APAR window for YR 2020-21 as some number of employees have reported to have missed their APAR during CoVID period i.e. Year 2020-21 due to various reasons related to the Pandemic. Hence, as discussed, APAR window needs to be opened for Year 2020-21, as well, so that equal opportunity could be made available to all such executives.

AIGETOA writes to BSNL Mgmt for revision of seniority list in line with Hon’ble Kolkata CAT orders – Promoting all eligible SDEs to the grade of AGMs

AIGETOA writes to BSNL Management with regard to the incorrect interpretation of Hon’ble Kolkata CAT orders dated 13.09.2022, subsequently reiterated again vide order dated 11.11.2022 by BSNL & Restoration of Seniority of LDCE-2012 qualified executives wrt VY / ROTA-QUOTA allotment in terms with the Hon’ble Supreme Court Judgement in the matter of K Meghachandra Singh and promoting all eligible SDEs to the AGM grade before moving on to the Amended MSRR regime. Since management has preferred to move ahead to promote Junior Executives as per Rota Quota rule, AIGETOA has requested to promote all eligible SDEs before moving onto ammended MSRR regime to ensure equitable justice for all. The same can be easily accommodated within the ambit of current structure itself and BBNL Merger with BSNL and management must consider promoting all eligible SDEs to the grade of AGMs.

Further the seniority list also must be ammended in line with the Kolkata CAT directions.

Meeting with GM Pers on settlement of SDE 2007 reversal issue and status on promotions in AGM grade for PWD candidates

Meeting of Team AIGETOA consisting of Dy GS Shri Pavan Akhand, AIC Shri Ravi Shil Verma, AGSs Shri Sunil Gautam and Shri Yogendra Kumar with GM Pers on settlement of SDE 2007 reversal issue and status on promotions in AGM grade for PWD candidates:

SDE Reversal Case :

Team AIGETOA reminded GM Pers about the discussion with Director HR wherein Hon’ble Director HR has categorically directed to settle the SDE 2007 reversal issue without any further delay. We firmly told GM Pers that he should realize the agony of the affected candidates and should not delay the action anymore. We requested GM Pers to call for committee Meeting and resolve the issue by next week as these candidates have already faced enough hardships and this mental torture and agony must end now. GM Pers assured that he will do the needful and speak to Hon’ble Director HR in this regard. We also informed GM Pers that all Candidates are open to out of court settlement and legal tangles in various courts will not be any issue provided management takes firm initiative to end the dispute and reinstate the Seniority of these candidates. As far as the current status is concerned, their names were in DPC and seats are kept reserved for them. Team AIGETOA shall be taking this matter further with Director HR early next week.

Promotion in PWD Quota

With regard to promotions in PWD quota, it was informed that action for DPC has been taken in line with the Directions of Hon’ble PCAT and further necessary action shall be taken after getting directions from Hon’ble PCAT in next hearing.

Promotion for all eligible SDEs to AGM & AO to CAO

Earlier with CMD BSNL and Director HR, Team AIGETOA raised the issue of promotions for the all eligible SDEs to AGM grade, AO to CAO promotions and also the left out JTOs for the SDE promotions. It was informed that management remains open to the promotion within the ambit of rules and structure. We told Hon’ble CMD that within the ambit of current structure only, the promotions of all eligible SDEs are possible, the need is to recognise the injustice met out to competitive quota candidates belonging to list 12 and 13. There are enough precedence in the organization both recently as well as earlier which can ensure much awaited promotion to all eligible SDEs to AGM grade.

Promotion of left out JTOs to SDEs

Similarly now it’s high time that promotion to the remaining left out JTOs to SDE Cadre is executed immediately to avoid perpetual losses in their careers. We also requested CMD BSNL for AO to CAO promotions and informed him that now with both sides willing to sort out the issue with consensus amicably, management must not miss the opportunity to ensure Promotions in AO to CAO cadre.

While meeting Director HR also, we raised the same issues. Director HR assured to take our submissions into consideration.

Friends, A lot of apprehensions are going on in the minds of all executives. We firmly and non ambiguously affirm that we will ensure the promotions to all eligible before moving on to the amended MS RRs.

We would like to convey that while we don’t hesitate in applauding the good efforts of our management, in the same manner we don’t hesitate in standing tough and tall against the actions which are contrary to the interests of the fraternity as well as organisation.

We request one and all to remain united and lend their firm support in our endeavors to ensure the best for our executive cadre.

Together we will achieve everything.

Congratulations to one and all…Promotion from SDE(T) to AGM issued

Without collective efforts and support of all, it was not possible. We once again congratulate all those who have been promoted to the AGM grade.

Further AIGETOA is taking all necessary efforts to ensure promotions of the other left out SDEs also and we will not leave any stone unturned to achieve the goal. We have already intiated the actions

Further, Team AIGETOA already initiated all necessary efforts to ensure the promotions for other left out SDEs and we are very sure that with same grit, same determination and same perseverance, we will be able to accomplish this task well in time. We are very much aware of our next responsibility to ensure the promotion of all eligible SDEs to AGM grade and promotions of all eligible AOs to CAO grade. Also clearance of left out JTOs for SDE promotions.

Friends, this success is incomplete without achieving the other left out SDEs promotions and we Firmly affirm we will not leave group, executive or grade in lurch. We stand firmly for progress and we mean it.

Together We CAN, Together We Have and Together We Will Definitely Achieve Success.

Update on Meetings with CMD BSNL, Director HR

The discussions and efforts are paving the way for much awaited promotions into AGM cadre. AIGETOA team comprising of Dy. GS Sh Pavan Akhand and Chairman Sh Ravisheel Verma and AGS Shri Sunil Gautam had marathon discussions and meetings in the last week to clear the stalemate with regard to promotion as well as Seniority issue.

The team (Dy. GS Sh Pavan Akhand and Chairman Sh Ravisheel Verma) met CMD BSNL, Director HR and GM (Pers) yesterday and requested to way forward nod for the promotions. The meeting ended on positive note and CMD BSNL was kind enough to issue firm Directions down the line. We also requested CMD BSNL for initiating the process for the next lot of promotions without any further delay. We also apprised CMD BSNL that with new MS RR, BSNL has finally recognised the need for pushing the deserving ones further up in the career but we highlghted that certain things have been missed out which are needed to incorporated to ensure that a firm and rugged system is in place with equal opportunity to all the deserving ones. CMD BSNL assured that while management has tried it’s best to ensure a merit oriented path for Executives but they are open to further suggestions and all genuine inputs shall be considered. We sought a detailed meeting under the chairmanship of CMD BSNL to present our views. Our AIGETOA Team is studying the MSRR draft and shall be presenting it’s views after haiving a detailed study and inputs from all concerned.

We sincerely hope that the aspirations of senior executives and junior executives who are placed in various cadres and streams will be satisfactorily cleared. Further with regard to ongoing AGM promotions also, we are firm on our path to ensure Promotions for all within the shortest possible time and CMD BSNL has also assured us that once the process takes a start, he is open to discussion on next course of promotions,

We also highlighted that while the thrust of MSRR is on IPMS, the same is not being implemented in a scientific manner and instead targets which are assigned to the executives are unreasonable and practically unachievable most of the time. CMD BSNL recognised our concern and told that he also agrees that IPMS should be a firm and rugged system with reasonable and practical targets and assured that they shall be taking firm actions to ensure the much needed reforms in the system which includes hiring a consultancy firm also.

Later Dy. GS & AIC held discussions with CGM (NTR) PGM(SR), PGM (Est), GM (Pers) and held brief discussions with regard to draft of MS RRs. We told that though many inputs are covered but still certain things have been left out which are needed to be taken care of while amending the RRs. Committee Members asked us to provide our inputs. We told that we shall be reverting after having a detailed study. It is further understood from the discussions that there are some inadvertent errors with respect to the eligibility criteria are there in the draft which will be rectified while finalizing the RRs. We are very sure management will listen to our genuine apprehensions and will take necessary steps to accommodate the same.

Friends, slowly and steadily we are moving forward towards the change which we wanted to introduce in the system. We are aware that many things are still there to be taken care of but with our firm and United approach, we will be able to ensure that all lacuna is plugged off and finally we will succeed in creating a win win situation for all.

Need is to have firm faith and patience.

Together We Can. Together We Have. Together We will.
