He further told us that discussion on promotional aspects will be taken up from 15th November as next week after Diwali meetings of Audit Committee, Board Meetings of BSNL as well as MTNL are scheduled. He once again reassured that it will be ensured that stagnation is taken care of and executives do not suffer on this account.

Thereafter Team met Director HR and other Directors of BSNL Board and extended Diwali Wishes. Team also met PGM Pers and had a brief discussion on JTO to SDE Promotions, Publishing of Subsequent SDE Seniority Lists, Next course of action with regard to SDE to DE and AO to CAO promotions and also of other streams. PGM Pers told that there is no reason to panic and all necessary actions shall be taken to ensure that no executive suffers on the part of promotions. He told that slowly and steadily, things are being streamlined and step by step we are moving forward. He also told that preparatory action with regard to further DPC in JTO to SDE has already been initiated and similarly they will move forward in other grades and streams. He told that promotion in AGM cadre is linked to outcome of SLP while we told to ensure that covering all eligible by any means will resolve the reservation issue and the same needs to be explored expeditiously. Action on publishing the subsequent SDE Seniority list is underway and JAO Final Seniority list is also being published. Further discussion on promotional avenues will take place from 15th onwards and we will take all necessary actions to bring all the stakeholders on board and move ahead jointly with consensus.

We once again reaffirm that AIGETOA is fully committed to ensure that promotion happens in a time bound manner and shall take all necessary action to ensure this. AIGETOA as well as Forum of Executive Association has already committed and decided that ensuring promotions in a time bound manner is our priority and we will take all necessary action to ensure this.

The association is closely pursuing the issue and awaiting the actual content of board minutes and management response on ground about execution of promotion in various grades and streams. We are restraining ourselves to give ample chance to the management for execution of long awaited promotion and working in tandem with Forum of Executive Associations in this regard. But we want to apprise the management that the executives are loosing patience and faith due to inordinate delay in issuing of promotions. An early action in this regard from the management is highly required to maintain industrial peace.
