GS AIGETOA writes to CMD BSNL regarding Promotions of all eligible executives who have fulfilled the attendant conditions of eligibility as prescribed in MS RRs.
Around 150 odd numbers of officers are working on DGM (Adhoc) basis and are yet to be promoted to DGM on regular basis despite serving in the grade for many years. Management has not been able to promote these officers to regular DGM by citing the reasons of pending court cases. Further, around 1350 AGMs have also completed their requisite residency period in the grade. Many of them are working in the grade for last as DGM (L/A) in BSNL for the last two years with the total posts of 1116 JAG posts. These officers are not even promoted to DGM on ad-hoc basis, despite all vacancies remaining unfilled in the grade. These officers are still working as DGM (L/A) after fulfilling the eligibility conditions as prescribed in the governing RRs.
AIGETOA strongly demand that all those officers who are working under DGM (LA) having fulfilled the attendant conditions of eligibility as prescribed in MS RRs may be immediately given entrustment charge as DGM on regular basis such that the sagging morale of seniors can be boosted and management can also do away with the repetitive and perennial exercise of carrying out DGM (LA) promotions. Further all consequential benefits attached to the DGM posts must be extended to them as being done in other cases. AIGETOA feel that this is the only feasible and pragmatic way to impart justice to these officers. This will not only provide respite to these officers but it will also result in further promotions in other grades.
The scenario of consequential vacancies in various grades arising out of such entrustment shall be as stated below:
- Total No. of AGM vacancies arising out of DGM entrustments : 1116
- AGM vacancies unfilled as on date from internal quota : 650
- Total Number of Vacancies envisaged for external quota be diverted to internal quota : 300
- Hence total number of vacancies which can be made available for AGM promotions from existing strength : 2066
Hence Total 2066 SDEs can be promoted to AGM grade. This will further give opportunity to near about 2066 promotions from JTO to SDE along with 600 already available vacancies and further more so many vacancies will be created in JTO grade also.
This means by one decision, around 5900 promotions can be executed as per the below mentioned breakup:
- AGM to DGM : 1116
- SDE to AGM : 2066
- JTO to SDE : 2066 plus 600 vacant posts ie total 2666
Similarly the same methodology may be applied in Finance Grade also wherein the AOs having fulfilled the attendant conditions of eligibility as prescribed in MS RRs may be immediately given entrustment charge as CAO on regular basis. The scenario of consequential vacancies in various grades arising out of such entrustment shall be as stated below:
- AO to CAO : 712 plus 84 vacancies of SET quota ie 796
- JAO to AO: 796 Posts
Hence just by one out of box and technically feasible decision, around 7500 promotions can easily be executed. This will give a huge respite to the executives having fulfilled the eligibility conditions for promotions to next grade.
