GS AIGETOA writes to US (SNG), Department of Telecom, in response to his letter dated 14.07.2023 to the CMD BSNL regarding issuing presidential orders to the employees, recruited and sent for training by DoT, prior to 01.10.2000 and who joined duty after formation of BSNL, requesting to treat them as DoT recruitees, based on the criterion laid down by the Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare.
GS AIGETOA emphasizes that its crucial to note that the observations outlined in the letter of US (SNG) do not align with the historical precedence set by the Department of Telecommunications in similar cases, nor do they conform to the legal determinations rendered by various courts in relation to this issue. Additionally, the observations appear to be at odds with the criteria established by the Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare in matters of this nature.
In light of the aforementioned considerations, AIGETOA has requested to DOT for the reconsideration of the matter. To facilitate this, we have prepared a point-wise reply to the observations presented in your letter. This reply encapsulates our perspective and rationale, supported by existing regulations, legal judgments, and relevant precedents. We earnestly hope that you will take into account these crucial factors and reconsider your stance on this matter.
