Update of Discussion of Forum of Associations leaders on draft MSRR:

Yesterday, Leaders from Forum of All Associations of BSNL met all the committee members including chairman of the Committee Shri R K Goyal, PGM Estt Shri Saurabh Tyagi, GM Pers Shri S N Gupta and PGM SR Ms Anita Johari. The leaders apprised them of the underlying apprehensions and objections on the proposed MSRR draft. This was done as a follow up of the meeting with CMD BSNL. We also met Director Finance Sh Rajeev Kumar and apprised him about the concern.

Thereafter, today the team met Director HR and discussed on the points. This was the second meeting with the Director HR on the issue. We have categorically informed all concerned that without taking care of the existing eligible executives, any changes in existing MSRR will result into huge dissatisfaction. We requested them to postpone the ammendment in MSRR to 1st April 2023 and use the period for extending promotions to all eligible executives who have completed their residency period and addressing the concerns raised by us by way of mutual discussions. We again emphasized that none of the association are against meritocracy and we only are opposing the cutoff date and want a smooth transition to the next MSRR regime which can only be ensured by taking care of promotions of all eligible by extending the date of implementing the ammendments in MSRR to 1st April 2023 and addressing the concerns raised by various stakeholders during this period. Director HR assured to look into the concerns raised by all the associations including the matter of extending date of implementing the amendments to 1st April 2023.

We hereby assure one and all that associations are fully committed to protect the rights of all and will ensure that promotions of all eligible executives including those who will become eligible on 1st January 2023 are done. Further we are also committed to ensure that the concerns raised by various stakeholders are taken into consideration and resolved to the satisfaction of all.

With Warm Regards

Forum of Associations of BSNL
