Dear Executives of BSNL,
We extend our heartfelt gratitude, representing AIGETOA, for your pivotal role in establishing our association as the Majority Representative Executive Association during the 2nd Membership Verification. As we stand on the brink of a new era for Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), we take immense pride and honour in presenting ourselves for the upcoming Membership Verification (3rd MV) of BSNL executives, with the aim of being elected as the recognized Majority Representative Association for the next term.
AIGETOA embarked its journey 18 years ago, characterized by its inclusive, democratic, fair and transparent approach in representing various pertinent issues. Throughout its recognition period over last 3 years, it has diligently endeavoured to rectify the substantial repercussions that the legacy establishment and associations that preceded it have inflicted upon the internal systems of BSNL and the biased practices that existed over the past two decades. It’s our firm conviction that AIGETOA has been at the forefront of driving positive change and progress for all of us and our beloved organization – BSNL, over the last recognition period.
In the past three years, our combined efforts and unwavering dedication have yielded a multitude of achievements. AIGETOA has been successful in advocating for numerous promotions by clearing the hurdles, ensuring the career growth and recognition of deserving executives. We have also diligently worked to instil transparency and equity in policies, cultivating a supportive and thriving work environment. We have sincerely tried to make a difference within the system and we believe that we made a positive impact in all spheres related with employees and the Organization. The professional way of approaching issues, our trustworthiness, sincere and honest working style, etc. have made applauds from all.
Nonetheless, we acknowledge that some commitments made during the previous MV could not be fully realized, primarily due to severe financial constraints that plagued BSNL. Additionally, the unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns significantly impacted our capacity to actively pursue certain demands for a substantial part of the recognition period. We wholeheartedly embrace acknowledging our limitations in this aspect before the BSNL fraternity, as we firmly believe that this practice only serves to enhance our resolve and resilience. Rest assured that our determination remains steadfast in overcoming these hurdles and relentlessly advocating for your rights and well-being.
Furthermore, we have added a new dimension to our efforts in pursuing the promises by affiliating with the largest umbrella organization of trade unions in India, BMS (Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh). BMS possesses a significant voice that resonates in both the highest echelons of Government as well as political corridors. Through this affiliation, we anticipate regular and systematic interactions with government authorities at the highest levels to address various issues in the coming days, especially those issues which have financial liability and need clearance from government. Immediately within one month of affiliation, GS BMS has raised the issues of Pay Scale, Pay Loss, 30% SAB, Promotions, Revision in Allowances and Perks and the 3rd PRC implementation for BSNL employees with Hon’ble Minister Shri Ashwini Vaishnav Ji and has assured us of their fullest support. Thus, now the situation is getting different as BSNL came to Operation profit in last two FYs and we are able to reach to Ministry level and now with the involvement and presence of AIGETOA in lead position, considerable progress will be made.
The result of this affiliation is automatically visible with a series of meetings with the dignitaries at the highest level including two times meeting with Hon’ble MoC Shri Ashwini Vaishnav ji, Two Times Meeting with Hon’ble MoSC Shri Devusinh Chauhan Ji, One Meeting with Hon’ble Minister of Defense and Member of the GoM Shri Rajnath Singh Ji and many other Hon’ble dignitaries and MPs who all have assured to take the voice pertaining to our issues at the highest level and our issues of Pay Scales, Pay Loss and 3rd PRC are being precipitated at the highest level.
Please refer the appended evaluation or Assessment of Shapath Patra 2020 for more details. As you peruse this section, it is our aspiration that you will find our Assessment of Shapath Patra 2020 to be exceptionally informative and an essential tool in evaluating our performance over the preceding years. Nevertheless, as we have admitted earlier, we do agree that some of the promises made previously, remain unrealized so far due to reasons beyond our control. We assure that will continue to persist with our genuine and dedicated efforts to navigate these challenges with a clear and insightful understanding of the issues at hand.
However, we wish to underscore our unwavering resolve to actualize those promises which we passionately pursued in our current recognition period, but remain unfulfilled due to the formidable financial challenges faced by BSNL despite certain aspects making considerable progress. With this context in mind, we proudly unveil our commitment for the future, which forms the bedrock of our candidacy in the forthcoming 3rd MV. We are embarking on a journey of transparency and commitment and we present a comprehensive catalogue of the promises we intend to fulfil. Our dedication to transparency is the cornerstone of this manifesto, ensuring you are well-informed about the aspirations we hold for our shared future.
We remain confident that everyone will recognize our sincere and honest approach in pursuing our promises despite the multiple challenges that we encountered. And at this crucial juncture, we rely on your unwavering support to continue our journey towards a brighter future for BSNL. Your vote in the impending MV will shape our organization’s path for the next three years.
Together, we can conquer challenges, uphold integrity, and forge a stronger, united BSNL. We implore upon you to join us in our quest for a more prosperous and fulfilling career at BSNL.
Hence we earnestly invite your participation in the upcoming Membership Verification scheduled for 12-09-2023 and urge you to cast your vote in favour of AIGETOA at Serial No 3 and together, let’s illuminate the path for a brighter tomorrow.
