Update on BSNL Board meeting held on 12.10.2017


BSNL Board Meeting held today as per the schedule wherein the implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL was one of the agenda item. It is understood that 3rd PRC report was discussed for one hour. Addl. Secretary (T), DoT, the Govt. nominee in the Board however, did not agree to discuss the agenda since sufficient time is not given to study the agenda.


So the matter is postponed to be discussed in the next Board meeting scheduled to be held after Diwali tentatively 23rd or 24th October 2017. It seems that Addl. Secretary (T), DoT, the Govt. nominee in the Board is not in the favour of implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL.


In view of that all the BSNL Unions and Associations should mobilize the organization action programs to impress upon the Govt. for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL. All the Circle Secretaries / District Secretaries are requested to ensure 100% participation in the proposed agitation programmes of All Union & Associations of BSNL.


Lunch Hour Agitation Programme in Kerala  under the banner of All Unions and Associations of BSNL will be carried out on 17/10/2017(Tuesday) instead of 16/10/2017 due to the inconvenience of  Harthal ,

CS , CP , CVP and DS TVM Met PGM-F on appointment and discussed all the pending issues with Finance/Accounts vertical . Some of the issues discussed follows.


Higher Pension option of BSNL DRs:

On the request of AIBSNLEA , PGMF again written to Regional PF Commissioner , Trivandrum requesting to re examine Higher Pension option of BSNL DRs and allow the eligible employees of BSNL to exercise an option for contributing to the pension fund on higher wages . The exercise of option is done in some other circles.


It is fact that a member contributing to PF on wages exceeding the ceiling cannot be debarred from exercising options to contribute on higher wages to pension fund. The first request was turned down by Regional PF Commissioner. MOL & E vide letter dated 16/03/2017 has conveyed its approval to allow members of EPS , 1995 who had contributed on higher wages exceeding the statutory ceiling of Rs.6500/- in the PF to divert 8.33 % of the salary exceeding Rs.6500/- to the Pension Fund. PGM F assured that the options will be  taken from  Kerala Circle also.


ERP- Proper cashbook extraction from SAP

CSCs have to do legacy, manual as well as in ERP for accounting purpose. If a proper cashbook can be extracted from SAP much time can be saved by our CSC personnel. Even though the requirement is projected at the time of SD module implementation itself no result. Hence, it is to be taken up with administration to avoid waste of man power even after ERP implementation.  PGM appreciated our concern and informed that as per the request submitted in our last meeting, he has written to GM FICO CO in this regard. We extended sincere thanks to PGM.


Phase-I Training of JAOs ( 6 SC/ST candidates  and 5 Vacancies arise out of the opting of JAO candidates to JTO posts) :

We requested for speeding up of the process. But , PGM informed that as per corporate office letter , circle cannot fill up the 5 vacancies   occurred due to the opting of JAOs to JTO posts 


Pending LA for AO/CAO cadres:

We requested to fill up the vacant AO/CAO posts all along Kerala circle without any more delay . We input all the details of vacancies in AO/CAO cadres . PGM assured to fill up all the posts.

BSNL filed 14 writ petitions in HONBLE Kerala High court against the FR 22 1(a) 1 pay fixation of officiating JTOs . From  year 2010 onwards these cases are pending with this court . During this period officiating JTOs   of other circles filed for fr22 1(a)1 protection cases . For all these cases favourable judgment were received from PCAT  New Delhi. However, BSNL  filed appeal in high court of  New Delhi .  New Delhi  high court dismissed this appeal with remarks that it  is  subject to the outcome of  pending cases in high court of kerala . BSNL  again went to supreme court . Supreme court also dismissed this SLP and  made same remarks that   the outcome of  the case is subjected to the verdict of  kerala Highcourt. Finally 15/09/2017 Honble kerala high court dismissed all 14 petitions with FR 22 1 (a) 1 . Now all officiating JTOS are  eligible for   FR 22 1(a) 1  and no Recovery will happen further on this fixation already done .

CS and BS CO branch met GM(A/HR) Shri. Robin Poddar and discussed all the pending Service/HR issues  . DGM(HR) Shri. James Sagayaraj and AGM(HR/Rec)  Shri Mahesh were also present during  the meeting. Some of the HR issues discussed follows..


Phase-I Training of DR JTOs:

We have requested for an early release of the training schedule from BRBRAITT Jabalpur like two batches of 30 candidate each scheduled for RTTC Rajpura and RTTC Hyderabad . We also requested to release the Name  list of 30 candidates for the phase –I training at RTTC Rajpura , Punchab so that they can reserve ticket for  conveyance  at the earliest . GM appreciated our concern and assured to peruse further with BRBRAITT for releasing the schedule though possible dates are from November 2017 onwards. He also assured to release the list of the candidates today itself in intranet.


Considering Request Transfer of JTOs (VY 2013-14) posted out of  parent BA :

We informed the natural heartburn of JTOs against VY 2013-14 . Most of them are posted in remote BAs while most of the junior JTOs against VY 2014-15 are posted in parent BAs. We are not against posting the junior JTOs to parent BAs and we requested to post all the JTOs against VY 2015-16 also to the parent BAs . The heavy shortage of JTOs in various BAs were to be addressed initially and all JTOs against VY 2013-14 were posted accordingly.


We requested to consider all the request of these JTOs working in non-Parent BAs to Parent BAs  because of around 525 JTOs ( LICE  & DR)  are in the pipe line to be posted after Phase-I training. GM , DGM and AGM shared our concern and assured to look into it .   


Phase-I training option to RTTC Trivandrum from CTTC Indore for those who are undergoing Pre-basic training at CTTC Indore:

We requested to consider the requests at least on merit. GM assured to look into the requests and assured to try his level best, but he was non-committed.


JTO Phase-II training of erstwhile O-JTOs and Phase-I training of left out candidates :

This case also discussed in detail and requested to arrange Phase-II training for the  Phase-I completed erstwhile O-JTOs . All the JTOs are completing two years of JTO service and short of awarding second increment .   Awarding of second increment may not be delayed due to lagging of Phase-II training. GM assured to take up the matter with BRBRAITT.


CS and BS CO branch met PGM(F) Shri.KK Vel and discussed all the pending issues with Accounts/Finance Vertical. Some of the issues discussed follows

Filling up of 6 JAO vacancies :

We requested to complete the formalities for the Phase-I training of all the 6 JAO aspirants.  PGM (F)  appreciated our concern and informed that the letter in this regard addressed to him by this association was handed over to recruitment cell and they are on the process . He added that request of AIBSNLEA would be materialised without delay.

Long Pending AO/CAO LA :

We reminded the request we have done in the last meeting regarding this. PGM(F) replied a positive outcome on the pending LA   issue will happen without much delay

Posting of Com. Rajeev , JAO NTR N.Delhi to CLT BA:

We requested his posting to his parent BA , Calicut .  PGM(F) replied that being it a mutual transfer he can be posted to Palakkad BA only because of acute shortage of Account personal in PKD BA.  PGM(F)  mentioned  that AIBSNLEA already took up the case of shortage in Palakkad BA . However we requested to consider our request when another new JAO is posted to Palakkad BA . We also reminded that Com.Rajesh at PKD BA has completed JAO phase-I training and his posting will happen with the next batch of 6 JAOs.


We further added that AIBSNLEA knows the shortage and the over workload of JAO/AO/CAO level officers all along Kerala circle as administration also knowing. Most of the officers are leaving office in late hours due to heavy work load , they are  conducting Melas even for Sundays and other holidays  etc . But, it was quite amazing to watch  the call of the “so called majority association”  to  reduce the strength of Accounts/Finance cadre officers and to stop JAO recruitment anymore . Due to the timely intervention of the executive friendly association AIBSNLEA, the Accounts/Finance Cadre killing operation of that association with hidden agenda was derailed.
