BSNL Should Expedite the Process to Issue Long Due Promotions in AGM (Telecom) and other Grades – DOPT issued direction on the matter of Reservation in Promotions…

The recent order of the DOPT dated 12th April’2022 on the matter of Reservation in Promotion in the light of the judgment by the Hon’ble Supreme Court judgment dated 28th Jan’2022 in Jarnail Singh & Ors Versus V. Laxmi Narain Gupta Case & Ors (Civil Appeal No 629 of 2022 arising out of SLP(C) No 30621 of 2011) has given an opening for issuing of promotion by all Departments of the Central Government. The Promotion in AGM, CAO, AO and other grades was halted in BSNL also owing to the matte of Reservation in Promotion being challenged in the Court of Law. Now the deck is clear for the issuance of the promotion after the DOPT Order.

It is extremely painful to note that SDEs are waiting for their next promotions in the grade of AGM from Vacancy Years 2001-02 to 2009-10 onwards despite completing their residency period and working in SDE cadre since last 8-18 years despite possessing the qualifying service and availability of the vacancies. AIGETOA demands immediate issuance of the promotion in the AGM (T) and other grades in view of the long suffering by the Executives as well as acute requirement by the organisation, which is struggling due to shortage of officers on the AGM/CAO grades. All Circles are requested to ensure completion of the online updating of APAR grading of offline period as instructed by the corporate Office in December’2021 and issuance of the certificate by the GM(HR) of the Circle in this regard.
