Team AIGETOA Meeting with Member Services, Director (Estt) and Deputy Secretary PSU-1, DoT on 22.09.2022:

Team AIGETOA comprising of Shri Veerbhadra Rao, President, Shri Wasi Ahmad GS, Shri Vivek Kumar Singh AGS, and Shri Rakesh Meena CS NTR held detailed meeting with Member Services, Director Estt and Deputy Director (PSU-1) regarding the approval of SDE RR and implementation of standard scale in BSNL which is long pending HR matter in BSNL for the settlement of intermediary pay scale by replacing the E1A scale to E2 and E2A scale by E3 for the JTOs and SDEs equivalents. We again lodged our strong protest in front of Member Services on the letter issued by DoT on dated 29/04/2022 and its disagreement on account of cascading, which is in complete contravention of the proposal of BSNL. The statement of Dot that the earlier PO of Dot dated 28.03.2017 for standard Scale has endorsement of DPE does not hold merits.

We apprised about our multiple meetings in recent times which were held in the DoT with the other seniors officers of DoT on the above matter and the concerns raised by the association. We informed Member Services that the order issued by DoT has created a serious ruckus among the Executives fraternity of BSNL and it may disturb the peace of the organization if not rolled back immediately as DPE has never given concurrence on the intermediate scale proposal of DoT. We demanded from the DoT officials that, Is there any letter had been issued by DPE regarding the intermediate scale approval, it need to shared with the majority recognized association of the BSNL i.e AIGETOA and if it is not issued, DoT must role back its order issued on 29/04/2022. After the detailed deliberation for the half an hour, Members Services finally marked the letter to the concerned cell for putting up the case again with the fresh inputs provided by the AIGETOA.

Later association held discussion with Director (Estt) and DS (PSU-1) regarding the approval of SDE RR which is pending for the approval from DoT. Association informed to the DoT officers that the query placed by their office on the SDE RR has again reverted back by the BSNL and the same need to be processed for the early approval from the DoT finance wing after receiving the inputs from the BSNL. And association is hopeful that the inputs provided by the AIGETOA have been incorporated for the final approval of the SDE RR at the earliest. And we finally requested DoT to kindly approve the SDE RR at the earliest as this doesn`t have any financial implication.
