New CHQ Team of AIGETOA has been endorsed by the BSNL Corporate Office for all purpose in line with the election held at Bhopal on 14th March 2022. This Team is a mix of previous body OBs and new entrants i.e. a combination of experience and youthfulness under the leadership of our vibrant General Secretary Shri Wasi Ahmad and Young All India President Shri Veerbhadra Rao. In a Special General Body Meeting held though online on 15.04.2022, our most respected and tallest leader Shri Ravi Shil Verma has also been unanimously nominated as Chairman of AIGETOA. The new team has swung into action immediately towards various outstanding issues of the Executives as well as the policies for revival and survival of BSNL. In recent times, the Team has held several meetings at different level of authorities in BSNL, DoT and DoPT. At the same time, CHQ has attended various meetings of the combined platform of AUAB as well as our ally association SEWA also. In between, OBs of New CHQ has also succeeded in meeting various Hon’ble Members of Parliament as well as Member of Parliamentary Committee on Communication and Information Technology, Govt of India to further precipitate and resolve our issues. We have set our agenda very clearly to ensure resolution of long pending issue of Standard Pay Scale E2-E3, Pay loss issue of JTO/JAO, Issuance of long awaited promotion in AGM/CAO/EE, SDE/AO/AE and other grades and settlement of Reversal Issue, full 30 percent Superannuation Benefits (SAB), Creation of mechanism for the Fast Track Promotion Channel through MS RR, Cashless MRS facility and Group Health Insurance Policy by BSNL, Revision of Allowances, Restoration of LTC, 3rd PRC in BSNL etc.
Despite getting the Majority Representative Association tag in the most difficult phase of BSNL as well as mankind, we have been able to clinch long pending issue of promotions from JTO to SDE and other equivalent grades, the transparent and unform transfer Policy, clinching maximum posts in the middle level management despite surrender of almost 14000 post due to VRS, streamling and clearing of Rule 8 cases, incorporation of stagnation criteria through personal upgradation in RRs, incorporation of fast track promotion policy in various RRs, notification for LICE for JE to JTO, deposit of arrears of SAB fund, Up to date deposit of EPF contribution, timely payment of medical bills, maintenance expenditure are to name a few. Today we have created an echo system where no executive is dependent upon anybody for processing of his Requests down to the SSA level. In the most critical period of Covid, we extended a health policy at such rates that many thousand employees of BSNL were able to have a health cover and they got the benefits of almost 20 crores as claim settlement, we have been able to get created BSNL Covid Fund for the families of all our brothers who left us due to Covid. The achievements are many but at the same time there has been certain setbacks also for which we are fighting hard and will ensure that justice prevails for all. We will claim our successes and at the same time we will not hesitate in accepting our failures also and will strive to overcome those failures and convert them to success. Executives voted for change and change is visible.
This changed scenario was not possible without the ardent support of the OBs, Members and Executive Fraternity. Still some association play the game of number and try to deceive management on various occasions though SAP Count. Now, a time has come to give a full support in terms of numbers also to cement the position of the association for a harder and efficient way for resolution of issues. So, we request all of you to please come forward and extend a hand of support for a better future in BSNL. Following is the Team of AIGETOA CHQ for your service at all time.
