The Support Association Finally Ends the 67 Days Show Off Dharna

The So called Dharna of SA ended day before yesterday without any breakthrough on any issue for which they have broken the larger unity of the Executives Associations in December-2021. It seems the fear of long stay execution (26 years) has played a key role in this withdrawal. The so called Dharna ended without any show off with none of the agenda points being settled or even assured by the management. This shows the real intent that the whole episode was just a gimmick and proves the fact how their earlier leadership was trying to befool the members. They broke the executive unity with big-big words and finally settled for nothing except for a glass of Juice.

AIGETOA has always been on the right path and today our words have been proved correct beyond any doubt. The concept of Stagnation Criteria has been well accepted by management and the same will be ensured in MS RRs also along with Fast Track Promotion Policy as assured by management to AIGETOA earlier. The concern of Executives wrt Stagnation Criteria of 12 years in SDE RR has also been taken care of by management in its Board Meeting held on 28th March 2022 after strong pursuance by AIGETOA. Contrary to the updates shared by SNEA on their website, management has already agreed to the request of AIGETOA to reduce the Stagnation Criteria of 12 years and accordingly BSNL Board has passed the SDE RR and has authorized the CMD BSNL/Management Committee on decision with respect to relaxation in the stagnation criteria. The apprehensions raised by AIGETOA with respect to Pay Scales have also been duly acknowledged and BSNL Board has considered the corrective action in SDE RR in its meeting held on 28th March 2022. We were waiting for confirmation on finalization of minutes to inform all about the developments because we wanted to be doubly sure before publishing anything not like the irresponsible updates on the website of our sister association which were later on deleted from their website. Now the minutes are going to be released very soon and SDE RR is also going to be notified along with promotion of left out JTOs of 2008 batch in pipeline. This shows and proves the strong will power and methodical approach of AIGETOA towards resolution of long pending HR issues and its role as Majority Association. As updated earlier, it is also understood that the second reminder to DoT for approval of E2 pay scales is also under process and shall be sent soon. We also ensure all our young brothers and sisters belonging to SRD Batch, LICE 2014 and subsequent batches that your promotion shall also be ensured well in time. We also assure those waiting for AGM Promotions that AIGETOA will take care of this burning issue and will take all efforts to ensure promotion of all Eligible SDEs to AGM grade and will not allow anybody to stagnate in the cadre anymore. Similarly, the promotion in CAO and other equivalent grades are also being pursued as the DoPT OM has clarified the matter of Reservation in Promotion. We will take care of aspirations of our seniors also wrt regular DGM promotions as we don’t believe in any adhocism.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all Executives of BSNL, Members of AIGETOA for standing strongly with the association. We also extend our gratitude to the members and OBs of other association for endorsing and supporting our stand. The result of your faith and patience is getting visible slowly and steadily with wrong doings of previous 20 years being set right now.

From the day one we have been telling, half baked CPSU hierarchy will never see light of the day, but a hype was being kept created by Ex-leadership of SNEA and in the process they almost befooled executives for around 4 years now and stopped the promotions of Executives belonging to different grades and streams. Now SNEA finally accepted this fact on their website also but by this time it killed the precious years of Executives specially those waiting for SDE and AGM promotions and especially the JTOs belonging to 2007, 2008, SRD and LICE batches. This should also act as an eye opener for all those who were criticising AIGETOA earlier.

However, it’s worth to note that new GS SNEA is agreeing with the line adopted by AIGETOA. It can be seen that SNEA is also endorsing the AIGETOA’s view on their website and rightly so. This type of pragmatic thought process needs to be there as support Association. This will help Majority Recognised Association AIGETOA in achieving the objectives very fast and more strongly. We hope such pragmatism continues and they start supporting AIGETOA in its efforts to achieve the long pending HR issues and we will also reciprocate equally.

Let us hope for a renewed unity amongst executives as now all association agreeing on the line adopted by AIGETOA which contains the unique blend of time bound Criteria within the framework of vacancy based promotions.

Let us together solve the issues of PPP unitedly.

Together We Will – Definitely.
