Updates on SDE Reversal Issue :

GS AIGETOA Shri Ravi Shil Verma and Convener Bharatiya Doorsanchar Manch Shri R C Pandey met Director HR and discussed about the immediate resolution of the SDE 2007 reversal issue. In view of the positive order pronounced on 12.03.2024, by Hon’ble CAT Lucknow bench in favour of the suffering executives regarding SDE reversal issue, We requested Dir(HR) to issue necessary directions down the line for immediate implementation and issuance of promotion orders.

We informed Dir(HR) that as per the judgment dated 12th March 2024, Hon’ble CAT Lucknow quashed an order issued by BSNL that reversed an employee’s seniority & promotion and directed the respondents to restore the name of applicants in the seniority list of SDEs within a period of two months.

We requested Dir(HR) that seeing the historical perspective of the case & assurances made in the past in various meetings/occasions to AIGETOA by the management to kindly give positive consideration to the issue and settle this on immediate basis.

Dir(HR) responded positively on the same and told that management is waiting for the written orders from Chennai CAT to take a decision after going through the judgement. We informed that due to some administrative reasons, the written orders from Hon’ble Chennai CAT is a bit delayed. However now that orders from Hon’ble Lucknow CAT has been issued, management can act upon immediately.

Director HR assured that after going through the written orders, the necessary decision shall be taken.

AIGETOA Team is consistently following up on the issue and will try to ensure the resolution expeditiously.
