AIGETOA seek Promotions to all Eligible Executives, put an end to demotivation – GS writes to CMD BSNL Shri P K Purwar Ji :

AIGETOA highlighted the gross injustice faced by BSNL executives regarding promotional avenues. Despite suggestions and appreciation from the Hon’ble MoC and management, the resolution of promotional issues has not been prioritized, even though it bears no financial implication for BSNL.

AIGETOA emphasizes the need for justice for executives who cleared the LDCE in 2012 and have been working in the SDE grade for over 10 years, with their seniority pushed down through no fault of their own. AIGETOA suggests that promoting all eligible SDEs to the AGM grade can resolve this issue. Additionally, the association proposes the implementation of an upper cap on the residency period for promotions across various streams, including Telecom, Finance, CSS, Civil, Electrical, and Architecture, through personal upgradation of incumbent posts.

Criticizing the current HR policy, AIGETOA argues that executives should not be forced to appear in LICEs at every level, unlike ideal PSUs that offer time-bound promotions to entry-level executives. They attribute the majority of court cases to the introduction of competitive exams in BSNL, leading to disillusionment and frustration among executives.

The letter also highlights the ongoing legal challenges to the recruitment of MT (Management Trainees). AIGETOA demands the management to scrap the arbitrary MT Recruitment Process and divert the seats to the DPC Quota.

Association urges the BSNL management to ensure a minimum career progression up to the AGM level through personal upgradation and the creation of promotional posts without increasing the total sanctioned strength. We also request the utilization of vacant posts in the Telecom, Accounts, and Finance cadres for DPC promotions and the diversion of SETs and DR DGM posts for DPCs to create additional opportunities.

The association hope that the BSNL management will recognize the demotivation among executives and direct the HR unit to complete the promotions of all eligible executives through the seniority cum fitness mode, providing expeditious relief.

It is our understanding that regular vacancies have existed in the CSS cadre for promotions from DM to AGM Regular & AGM to DGM, Regular and eligible employees have been eagerly awaiting their promotions in accordance with the established rules and regulations.

Congratulations !! As a first step, notional Promotions of those AGMs whose DPC was done in 2018 have been issued.

This case has been exclusively taken by our Association. We have brought into the knowledge of the BSNL management by writing the necessary correspondence and pursuing the matter at the highest level i.e. CMD & DIR HR. This was one of the pending roadblocks for finalization of seniority of the AGMs promoted in 2018 for consideration of them for DGM Promotions and utilization of these vacancies for promotion in SDE to AGM grade and JTO to SDE grade.

We extend our thanks to CMD, director HR & PGM Pers for issuing these promotions as per their words in the last meetings. Now we look for further promotions across various grades as per the discussions and methodology suggested by AIGETOA.
