The Credit Mongers are into the derailing business again – This time on SDE Reversal issue : Recently some associations who were simply sleeping on the issues pertaining to BSNL Recruits have suddenly became active. One such issue is the SDE reversal issue and the same has been assured by Director HR to AIGETOA that this issue will be resolved within this month. However, it is sad to see that some associations instead of precipitating the issue in a proper way, are simply doing just the opposite and raising apprehension in the mind of committee
members. However our team is active enough to sense their malicious campaign and have apprised the committee members about the details of this issue. We have also submitted another set of bulleted points made by our Chennai/TN team to the HR team.

The so called crusaders are so indulged into anti BR activity that instead of making things clear to management , they are doing just the opposite. Another glaring example for this is their so called CPSU Hierarchy proposal. After singing the song of stoppage of promotions by AIGETOA and its activists, they have suddenly changed the records and now are singing that promotion can not happen due to reservation issue. This is a simple derailing strategy as now when we have set the things in right direction, they are going to management and telling them to do just the opposite. The burning proof is that the second lieutenant who was vociferously opposing CPSU Hierarchy Proposal have now joined hands with them and together they are destroying the future of BSNL Recruits.

However, AIGETOA will not let them do this and we will ensure the resolution of the issues come what may.. enough is enough.. we have exercised enough patience.. now we will teach all those who are into this derailing technique, a suitable lesson.

So, Once again we request all BSNL Recruits to analyse, realise and conceptualise the reality and join hands together under the larger umbrella of AIGETOA for a final settlement of our issues.


review meeting of agenda items and the resolution as discussed in our earlier meeting AIGETOA team is scheduled to be held with Director HR and his team on
22nd May 2020. On the reversal issue AIGETOA team has already met each member of the committee and have apprised them of the situation and possible solution. We were pleased to learn that majority members of the committee except one is convinced with our arguments and are in favour of a final resolution to this injustice. They have sought certain details which our team has already submitted.

Discussion was also held with committee members on JTO to SDE DPC and LDCE notification and it is understood that HR team is working in the direction of
issuance of promotions. Further w.r.t preparation of list 9, necessary directions have been issued to process it. Our pursuance is also on wrt SDE to AGM promotions and we are trying to sort out the created problems by activists of the erstwhile legacy associations.

Further updates shall be provided after discussion in the review meeting with Director HR to be held on 22nd May 2020. Discussion with SR team has also been held with respect to change in membership window and notification of next MV. Our team is working on that.

Friends claimants of the output will be many but believe us, it is our team which has been pursuing all the issues through all means and are ready to go to any extent to resolve it without waiting any further for the same. Now that issues are coming in pipeline, sudden updates are visible on the website of those who were till last week concerned about issuance of DGM promotions and relaxation in Residency period for AGM to DGM promotion. However we request these credit mongers that we will give all the credit to them, now they should not create any more nuisance by giving confusing inputs to HR team. We are more focused on the resolution than the credit thing. We know credit mongers and problem creators will be punished when the time will come for the same.


GS-AIGETOA writes to the CMD BSNL to roll back the order of curtailment in ceiling of with voucher outdoor medical reimbursement and start of without-voucher facility with 12.5 days pay (Basic+DA) along with MEDICLAIM POLICY for indoor treatment for executives working in the company and start of PRMB Fund for BSNL Recruited executives immediately. He also cautioned the management to keep the interests of working executives on priority while framing
policies instead of retired employees as the working class are the real warriors, who is earning for the company even in this pandemic of COVID-19. He demanded to implement the following immediately.

Immediate restoration of the outdoor medical facility with-voucher ceiling to 23 days of pay (Basic+DA) as existing earlier for the working employees of BSNL. Immediate start of outdoor medical facility without-voucher with 12.5 days of pay (Basic+DA) as existing earlier for the working employees of BSNL. Start of Mediclaim Policy for Indoor Treatment for working Executives. It is important to note that the average age of executives has reduced significantly after VRS in BSNL. Hence EMI for mediclaim policy of Rs 10 Lakhs will be significantly low and in fact a better option for both executives as well as the department. It will also reduced engagement of man power on this account which has already depleted in post VRS. Hence, the mediclaim policy should be implemented at the earliest for executives at least. Immediate start of Post Retirement Medical Benefit (PRMB) fund for BSNL Recruited Executives in line with the 2nd PRC Recommendations implemented in BSNL. The matter has been discussed time and again and management has assured on many occasions to start the PRMB Fund but the same has not been started till date. Hence, it must be started w.e.f 01.01.2007 for the BSNL recruited executives with suitable institutions to ensure proper coverage of medical expenses on post retirement for BSNL recruited executives also. Immediate payment of all outstanding dues of medical bills for working employees of BSNL.

One more blow to the working Employees of the organization especially BSNL Recruits who are already at marginal end in the company through ill conceived downward revision in Outdoor Medical Policy – Another gift of the Majority and Support Association in their tenure to the employees of BSNL:

AIGETOA strongly protest against the office order issued by BSNL for Outdoor Medical Claims reducing the ceiling from existing 23 days to 15 days of pay (Basic+DA) for employees of BSNL. All Executives in general and BSNL Recruits in particular are already facing a huge financial loss and career stagnation due to No Promotion, No 3rd PRC, No Standard Pay Scale, No full SAB, No PRMB, No other allowances, No timely Salary Payment, No Medical Payment etc. Instead of ensuring timely payment of salary, clearing of medical dues pending for last one year, clearing of due amount spent by our executives to maintain the network, settling of pay loss issues for executives recruited after 2K7, settling of long pending standard pay scale issue of E2-E3, issuing long awaited promotion of JTO to SDE & SDE to AGM, settlement of SDE reversion/other HR issues and above all extending the benefits of 3rd PRC to executives, who are working in life threatening condition of COVID-19; the management came with another anti employee order of downward revision of the ceiling of Outdoor Medical Claim. AIGETOA strongly oppose it and demand followings for our working executives: 
Restore existing ceiling of 23 days pay (Basic+DA) in cases of with-vouchers outdoor medical claim.
Start additional option of without-voucher outdoor medical claim as 12.5 days of pay (Basic+DA).  Start of option of Mediclaim policy Indoor treatment. It may not be out of place to appraise you that:

Now motto of extending facilities to majority and support association beyond the  recognition period is getting reflected. These associations who are nowadays working hand-in-glove to each other and write firing lines on their websites for DGM promotion etc are surprisingly silent on such vital matter which gives enough hint of their concurrence. But we just want to convey the management that we were avoiding confrontation in the larger interest of the organization for success of revival measures initiated by the government considering our longest shell life in BSNL but we can’t be a mute spectator when the interest of BSNL Recruits are at stake through one after other orders keeping silence on the
resolution of long pending HR issues. This can’t be tolerated anymore and now we call our leaders/members to start preparing for another battle in near future to snatch the due rights.

Summary of discussion held with Director HR on major pending issues:

1) JTO to SDE Promotion through DPC /LDCE: GS discussed the matter with Director HR on phone and highlighted severe resentment among the executives for non issuance of promotion of JTO to SDE. The Director HR told GS about the developments which has happened in line with our 24-Feb meeting but also told that the issue couldn’t move to conclusive end due to Covid-19. GS raised the serious concern on delay and requested to immediately restart the works where it was left before lockdown. The Director assured to direct Personal Section to resume the left out works pending as per discussions so that the process of DPC could be realised. GS highlighted that the LDCE notification is also pending despite instructions by the director to do so. Director HR assured for earliest necessary action in this regard.

2) SDE reversion case: GS raised the matter strongly with the Director and remind him about our last meeting discussion. It was decided in the meeting to settle it as a one time measure but still the order is awaited to this affect. The Director HR informed that works are going in the same line and he assured to get it done by the end of current month. The GS also apprised about hardships faced by the those got reverted as well as those issued notices without their fault. It’s extreme
injustice to these officers who are being suffering due to high handness of the
department since more than a decade of legitimate promotion. He requested the
Director to instruct the section to ensure adherence of the time line and ensure
its final resolution in this month.

3) Preparation of List 9:  Team will pursue to initiate the process for the Preparation of List 9 as per discussion held with DIR HR.

4) Promotion in SDE to AGM cadre and AO to CAO cadre: Also effort will be given to expedite promotion process in the other cadre ie JAO to AO, AO to CAO, SDE to DE/AGM cadre. GS has categorically stated that any drastic reduction in the name of restructuring will result in stagnation of all cadres and will be strongly opposed by association. GS also told that AIGETOA will take all efforts to end the stalemate w.r.t on merit and own merit issue so that a win win situation for all occur. GS said that now it?? high time that pending promotions of all eligible executives may be given in all cadres. CHQ team reviewed the status of the issues and decided to pursue the issues with a fixed time line of three months. As it is not possible at present for GS and other CHQ office bearer to travel to BSNL HQ New Delhi, it was unanimously decided that CHQ team available at BSNL CO will act in full force to expedite the persuasion process in the guidance of All India President for the settlement of long pending HR issues as per agenda meeting held with DIR HR on 24/25th Feb 2020. It was also decided that All India President Shri Ravi Shil Verma and AGS Shri Yogendra Kumar is authorised to pursue the issues and meet/communicate with the management on behalf of GS during this period and a formal communication shall be made to management in this regard.

5) CHQ team also reviewed the status of other important issues like Standard pay scale /Pay Loss issues/ 30 percent SAB etc. : For Standard Pay Scale issue, CHQ will reinitiate the discussion with DoT and press for early resolution. With regard to Pay Loss issue, the court case filed by AIGETOA members will be pursued along with simultaneous negotiations with management in this regard. For rule 8 and pending transfer cases, discussions  have been held and the same shall be pursued with.

6) Activity for the CS/CP:Circle Secretaries are requested to submit bank statement, expenditure voucher for the FY 2019-2020 to FS CHQ AIGETOA latest by 31st May 2020 to complete the CHQ audit process as per the time schedule. As it is not possible to conduct regular circle or district meeting as per the constitution of the association, Circle Secretaries are requested conduct meeting through available online video conferencing app.

7) Opening of Membership Window & Notification of MV: Management illegally extended facility twice to those associations whose tenure already completed long back without conduction of MV. CHQ already conveyed its resentment to CMD/DIR HR regarding illegal facility extension and also served letter to start agitational program, which could not be executed due to COVID 19 outbreak in India. Hence CHQ team decided that, AIGETOA will rigorously pursue with CMD/DIR HR for the immediate opening of membership window, notification for conduction of MV without any further facility extension. It was decided that pending issues as stated above will be pursued with management in a time-bound manner and if at any point of time, it is felt that things are not moving expeditiously, we will immediately start organisational action program. Hence CS/CP are requested to arrange/conduct meeting through online app and make themselves ready for protest against management in case things are not settled as per the commitment given by DIR HR.
