The meeting started at 2.30 PM and concluded around 4.15 PM . GM(A/HR) Shri. Robin Poddar was present all along the meeting. Later we again met GM (A/HR) and elaborated the cases entrusted to him by CGMT.
At the outset we extended sincere thanks to CGMT on considering the demands of AIBSNLEA in releasing the request/long stay transfer orders for SDE/JTOs respecting the existing norms . Also we have extended gratitude on immediate consideration and actions on our suggestions of service matters like switch off of D-TAX Medical College Exchange TVM , was holding ON unnecessarily . Due to the immediate action, BSNL could save lacks of rupees in Electricity Bill.
All the pending request transfers and shortfalls in the recently released long stay transfer orders were discussed. CGMT assured to consider almost all of our requests of individual cases. CGMT directed GM (A/HR) to process the cases.
AGM /AO/CAO (LA) in various BAs : We expressed concern on not releasing LA orders for some BAs while the orders issued for other BAs. CGMT replied that CO is releasing LA orders on the request from BAs . We highlighted the case of BAs like TVM wherein 5 DE(LA) were requested and 2 CAO posts are vacant . CGMT assured to look into the matter without delay.

Discontent on routing files of Accounts/Finance offices unnecessarily to AGM/SDE level between PGM(F) and CGMT : We expressed our strong displeasure on this newly introduced method that is delaying files to completion and creates turbulence of the HR matters of finance vertical which was smooth till recently.

Status on the JTO to SDE promotion case in Hon'ble High Court of Kerala:
The case on JTO to SDE promotions was listed for hearing in Hon'ble High Court of Kerala today but could not be taken-up due to paucity of time. Now the case is listed for tomorrow at 16.15 Hrs.
AIBSNLEA CHQ busted with facts and figures the Misleading information by AIGETOA against AIBSNLEA posted on their website dated 30.05.2018 and asking why the so called joint forum is continuously pressurizing BSNL Management for immediate implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy without holding of CPCs ? What action they have taken against the package ( CPSU CH + DGM & MT Recruitment) ?
AIGETOA in their website as updated on 30.05.2018 the GS AIBSNLEA falsely indicated AIGETOA name about the Allahabad court case and un-necessarily bothered Director (HR) for the reasons best known to him. This update on AIGETOA CHQ website is false and un-called for a responsible Association without verifying the facts. The fact remains that AIBSNLEA CHQ Office Bearers had meeting with Director (HR) in the presence of GM (Pers.) and demanded to issue JTO to SDE (T) SCF quota promotions also since these JTOs are waiting for their first promotion since 1995 JTO Recruitment year. Director (HR) appreciated our concern and asked GM (Pers.) to explain the bottle neck in the promotion of JTO to SDE (T) SCF quota, if any. GM (Pers) explained that the court case in the Hon’ble High Court, Kerala has been listed for pronouncement of the judgment on 4th June 2018 and one more court case stay order is pending in the Hon’ble High Court Allahabad and in this regard yesterday GS AIGETOA has assured him to get withdraw the court case by tomorrow itself. After hearing this reply Director (HR) immediately spoke with CGMT Kerala Circle and directed him to take all the efforts through BSNL’s advocate to get the judgment pronounced on 4th June itself wherein CGMT Kerala Circle assured her to get the judgment pronounced on 4th June 2018. Just after this, Director (HR) immediately called the GS AIGETOA in her chamber and advised him to ensure withdrawal of court case from Allahabad High Court by tomorrow itself and GS AIGETOA assured for its compliance by tomorrow. During these discussions, AIBSNLEA CHQ Office Bearers were present but they did not interact in between and never implicate the name of AIGETOA in it. Both the above actions of Director (HR) were based on the feedback given by the GM (Pers) only. Thus the allegation of GS AIGETOA against GS AIBSNLEA is false and uncalled for.
AIBSNLEA is working and safe guarding the interests of entire BSNL executive’s community in true sense which can be witnessed since its inception in the year 2004. AIBSNLEA need not to learn the functioning from the friendly Association. With the untiring efforts of AIBSNLEA only the BSNL Management decided to initiate CPCs to fill-up the vacant Group “B” and Group “A” level posts (up to DGM level) and after this decision, AIBSNLEA promptly persuaded to issue promotion orders wherever it is immediately possible. About 2000 LDCE qualified JTOs were waiting for their posting on promotions due to SC/ST Roster implementation court case and SDE RR modifications. BSNL Management responded positive to our demand and immediately issued modified SDE RRs. These two decisions paved the way to issue promotion orders of LDCE passed JTOs to the post of SDE (T) and accordingly, Management issued the promotion orders of 1987 SDEs of LDCE quota.
To continue the process, AIBSNLEA emphasized BSNL Management to speed up CPCs work to fill-up all vacant SDE/AO and DE/CAO equivalent posts before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. Whereas, the fact remains that the so called joint forum is continuously pressurizing BSNL Management for immediate implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy without holding of CPCs. The executives can analyse the truth with the ongoing developments for the last three years where more than 2000 LDCE qualified JTOs were waiting for their SDE promotion and the 4500 JTOs are waiting for the last 22 years for their first promotion to SDE cadre under SCF quota.
WHAT THESE MIGHTY ASSOCIATIONS WERE DOING FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS? Now every body is trying to take the credit for the promotions, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy etc when these are becoming reality. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy was demanded by AIBSNLEA in the year 2011 where a committee headed by Shri S.R. Kapoor, the then PGM (FP) was constituted thereafter again another committee headed by the then PGM (SR) Shri N.K. Narang was constituted but both the committees failed to submit the report. Thereafter, a new committee headed by the then ED (NB) Shri M.A, Khan was constituted wherein AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA were the members from Association side and after many marathon meetings the committee report was submitted which was twisted by Pers Cell BSNL Corporate Office in close coordination with the so called majority Association after referendum and with the support of their associate Association of Joint Forum. But, with the timely action taken by AIBSNLEA, many important modifications / improvements were incorporated in the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. AIBSNLEA always demanded cut-off date from the last CPC or from the year of recruitment and some more issues but BSNL Board approved it with prospective date of implementation which AIBSNLEA protested and demanded immediate holding of CPCs to fill up the vacant SDE/AO, DE/CAO and equivalent posts before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy to save the executives from humiliation because after CPSU cadre Hierarchy implementation all the existing RRs and posts of Group “B” and STS equivalent will be abolished and under new promotion policy. Under this CPSU Cadre Hierarchy these SDEs/ AOs equivalent executives are first to be promoted to the functional post of Sr. SDE/ Sr. AO equivalent and thereafter to the post of DE/CAO. It will further stagnate the existing SDEs and AOs who are waiting for their DE/CAO promotion.
Whether the so called joint forum leaders are not aware of the facts that BSNL Management is intending to notify MT Recruitment simultaneously with the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy? If known, why they are hiding this fact from their members? Since they claim that they were involved in the process of finalization of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and what is their stand now?
AIBSNLEA has cleared its view to the BSNL Management on all the occasions whether it is during discussions or in writing to oppose MT Recruitment at STS level. Thus AIBSNLEA in true sense trying to protect the interest of entire executive community in BSNL rather than playing with the career prospects of executives in BSNL. Let the executives be understand the game plan of the so called Joint Forum Associations from the above facts.
CS writes to GS AIBSNLEA for his kind intervention and perusal for conducting CPC of 2010 batch JAOs to AO before CCH implementation .
Once again the leader in you have proved the mettle of you that all the pending CPCs are being completed by corporate office in a war footing way before implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy to honor the eligible executives who were starving to get the deserved long pending promotions. We bestow a big salute to you on standing and fighting against the evil colluding forces who are trying to slaughter all the deserved promotion avenues of eligible executives under the banner of “ Majority Association” by implementing CPSU cadre hierarchy in a hefty way without having any foresight or bird’s eye view.
For example , If CPSU cadre hierarchy is implemented as one association is demanding , an SDE(T) who had been regularized in 2001 having 17 years of regular service in the cadre of SDE(T) will be promoted to Sr.SDE equivalent functional post for 3 more years to elevate to the grade of AGM . Thus the SDE(T) will get AGM post after 20 years along with executives completing only 8 Years of service in SDE& Sr.SDE grade. Since the corporate office is speedily moving in the direction as per the demand of AIBSNLEA, the SDE(T) would be promoted to AGM in 2018 itself before the CPSU cadre hierarchy implementation . Similar is the case of all other cadres . Thus, CPSU cadre hierarchy can be implemented in BSNL without any litigation only if all pending CPCs are completed.
Dear Comrade, I would like to highlight some of the facts for your kind intervention and perusal for conducting CPC for 2010 batch JAOs to AO before CCH implementation is detailed below

Meeting with Director (HR), BSNL Board, New Delhi:
GS, President met Director (HR), BSNL Board and expressed serious resentment against non holding of CPCs to fill up the vacant Group-‘A' and Group-‘B' equivalent posts in BSNL and demanded that before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy all the existing executives in JTO/JAO, SDE/AO and DE/CAO equivalent cadres should be promoted to the next higher vacant posts under the existing RRs. Non holding of CPCs before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy will cause serious frustration and resentment among the existing executives who are waiting their due promotions for the last many years. Director (HR), BSNL Board immediately called GM (Pers.) and discussed the matter in detail. The cadre wise details are as under:-
Promotion from JTO to SDE (T) SCF quota : We requested Director (HR) to direct Pers. Cell to initiate CPCs by calling of APARs and VCs of the eligible candidates to fill up the vacant Group-'B' posts in the cadre of SDE (T). GM (Pers.) apprised that the court case in Hon'ble High Court Kerala has been posted for pronouncement of Judgement on 1st or 4th June, 2018 and one another stay order on promotion has been granted by Hon'ble CAT Allahabad in a case filed by some DR JTOs.
Director (HR) immediately spoke with CGMT Kerala Circle and directed him to pursue in Hon'ble High Court for early pronouncement of the Judgement and called GS, AIGETOA and advised him to immediately withdraw the court case in the Hon'ble CAT Allahabad since she has already issued LDCE quota promotion orders. She categorically mentioned that in my family I can't see that some persons are happy and some others are unhappy and demoralized. GS AIGETOA assured Director (HR) that by tomorrow the court case in Hon'ble CAT Allahabad will be withdrawn. She further directed GM (Pers.) to initiate the process to promote about 4500 eligible JTOs to the post of SDE (T) with existing RRs. GM (Pers.) assured to issue promotion orders shortly.
Promotion from SDE (T) to DE (T): GM (Prs.) apprised that at present there is a dispute among the SDEs(T) on seniority list no. 6 & 7 which is to be shorted out. Director (HR) asked him that how many DE vacancies are there and how many SDEs are eligible for promotions. GM (Pers.) mentioned that about 3500 DEs vacancies are there and additional 800 DEs posts are required to promote all the SDEs of seniority list no. 6 & 7. Director (HR) immediately directed GM (Pers.) to submit a proposal for the up-gradation of 800 SDEs posts to DEs posts on Matching Saving Concept and instructed him to initiate CPCs to promote all SDEs of seniority list no. 6 & 7 to DE posts before CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation. GM (Pers.) assured to process the case of 800 posts up-gradation and to fill up 4300 DEs posts by conducting CPCs. He promised to complete this exercise within one month.
Promotion from DE (T) to DGM (Engg.): GM (Pers.) appraised that about 700 clear DGM vacant posts are there and about 200 Additional GM entrusted posts are there that can be utilized. Thus total 900 DGMs can be promoted in view of the Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh & DoP&T instructions available on catch up rule. Director (HR) assured that the CPC will be initiated immediately to fill up 900 DGM (Engg.)
Promotion from JAO to AO: We apprised Director (HR) to fill up about 1300 AO vacant posts by settling the JAO seniority dispute. She directed our CHQ President to pursue with the court case applicants who has filed the case in Bangalore to withdraw the case & settle the issue amicably as per DoP&T instructions available. She assured that she will discuss the matter with GM (FP) to initiate CPCs after her return from leave on 4th June, 2018.
Promotion from AO to CAO: We requested Director (HR) to fill up about 1000 CAO posts on the similar lines of DE to DGM promotions on catch up rule. Director (HR) assured that the similar actions will be taken on catch up rule as being decided in DE to DGM promotion.
Promotion from CAO to DGM (Adhoc) : We requested to fill up 40 DGM (F) vacant posts by granting relaxation of one year services to the CAOs not having requisite service experience for the promotion to grade of DGM. Director (HR) assured an early action in this regard.
Promotion from JTO (TF) to SDE (TF) and SDE (TF) to AGM (TF): We requested to fill up all the vacant AGM (TF) and SDE (TF) posts as per the proposal submitted by GM (TF) to Pers. Cell BSNL Corporate Office for clearance. We apprised Director (HR) that the proposal for the promotion from JTO (TF) to SDE (TF) for filling up of 44 SCF quota Posts and the promotion from SDE (TF) to AGM (TF) for filling up of 5 vacant posts has already been approved by the Competent Authority during Nov’ 2017 but till date CPC process has not been initiated. Director (HR) immediately directed GM (Pers) to initiate the CPC for the promotion from JTO (TF) to SDE (TF) for filling up of 44 SCF quota vacant Posts and for the promotion from SDE (TF) to AGM (TF) for filling up of 5 vacant posts. GM (Pers.) assured an early action in this regard.
Promotion from SDE (E) to EE (E): We expressed our resentment against the BW Cell BSNL Corporate Office attitude wherein the EE (E) CPCs are being conducted in violation of the BSNL MSRR. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter.
Promotion from JTO (E) to SDE (E) : We requested Director (HR) to fill up the vacant SDE (E) posts through CPCs. Director (HR) directed GM (Pers.) to discuss the matter with CGM (EW).
In this manner after detailed discussions, GM (Pers.) assured to conduct all CPCs within one month on war footing manner.

CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal approved by the BSNL Board - our concerns thereof
GM (Pres.) of BSNL Corporate Office convinced the BSNL Management and the Board of Directors in their meeting held on 28.05.2018 about the need of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and got approved it by replacing the existing EPP and BSNL MS RRs. Also pleaded that on implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy no financial implication will be there rather BSNL will save additional one increment benefit on post based promotions under EPP.
BSNL Board has approved the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy for BSNL Executives with the prospective date of its notification and further directed to abolish the entire vacant Group “B” and STS level posts as on 1st July 2018. It is a great injustice towards the executives who were eligible to be promoted to the next higher post on the functional basis as per the existing RRs and against the available vacancies in Group “B” and Group “A” level posts. All these executives are losing their past service which will frustrate and demoralize these executives as no proper consideration has been given for their past service. It is also said that in the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, there will be time bound post based promotions but contrary to this, adhoc promotions have also been introduced at the level of AGM in the case of non-availability of the posts which needs SC/ST roster implementation.
In order to overcome this unpleasant situation, we would like to suggest that as per the existing RRs all the vacant posts of Group “B” and Group “A” level should be filled up first since there is no stay order on promotions from any court. Only some directions are there to re-fix the seniority and on implementation of SC/ST roster. The TES Group “B” seniority lists should immediately be finalized based upon the Hon’ble Apex Court judgments otherwise the non-post based time bound promotions to the higher post under CPSU Cadre Hierarchy will not be possible.
In the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal approved by the BSNL Board the following shortcomings will put executives in loss and will invite litigations:
1. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy for BSNL Executives with the prospective date of its notification will cause great injustice towards the senior executives.
2. All vacant Group “B” and STS level posts as on 1st July 2018 are going to be abolished. RRs and sanctioned posts cannot be abolished in an arbitrary and retrospective manner. It is a great injustice towards the executives who were eligible to be promoted to the next higher post on the functional basis as per the existing RRs and against the available vacancies in Group “B” and Group “A” level posts.
3. The SC/ST Roster implementation on the pretext of non-post based time bound functional promotion has been denied whereas the adhoc promotions at AGM level have been introduced which can be against vacancies only,
4. The eligibility criterion i.e. the residency period for STS level posts has been increased to 12 years from 5/7 years. Introduction of Sr. SDE /Sr. AO as functional promotion have increased the stagnation to the SDE/AO and equivalent cadres.
5. Stringent bench marks have been introduced which will cause huge droppings,
6. Non implementation of Hon’ble Supreme Court judgments on TES Group “B” seniority before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy will invite litigations.
AIBSNLEA has requested CMD BSNL to kindly intervene in the matter and direct the Pers. Cell for conducting the CPCs to fill-up the entire vacant Group “B” and STS level posts immediately before notification of the corrected CPSU Care Hierarchy on the prospective date to avoid humiliation of executives and the scope of litigations.
So called majority Association in their website posting on 29.05.2018 have made a false claim that the formal discussions have been taken place with them only which is not correct. The fact remains that Pers, Cell of BSNL Corporate Office supplied the draft proposal to AIBSNLEA on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and had discussions more than three times at the instances of CMD BSNL and Director (HR) wherein we submitted our views / suggestions to the BSNL Management for consideration. Some suggestions given by AIBSNLEA have been considered for example non-post based time bound promotion up to the level of AGM instead of Sr. SDE, Jt. DGM designation to the executives drawing E5 scale and numerical bench mark consideration instead of subjective classifications etc. But, many suggestions have not been considered since the so called majority Association agreed upon.
BSNL Board in its meeting held today afternoon at Hyderabad approved CPSU Cadre Hierarchy on prospective dated i.e. date of notification implementation. The CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation with prospective date will not benefit the existing executives. In view of that before its notification, AIBSNLEA will continue its efforts to get fill up all Group-‘B’ and STS/JAG equivalent vacant posts of all disciplines through CPCs.
The other suggestions given by AIBSNLEA to consider time bound functional promotion upto AGM Level, Jt. GM designation to the STS level officers working in E-5 grade has been considered and approved by BSNL Board.
The other issues i.e. eligibility conditions for promotion from SDE/AO to DE/CAO within 7 years instead of 12 years, benchmarks on numerical basis and SC/ST roster implementation have been considered or not will be find out shortly.
It is learnt that BSNL Board has recommended to abolish all SDE/AO, DE/CAO equivalent posts w.e.f. 01st July, 2018. Thus the all vacant posts of Group-'B' and STS level are necessarily required to be filled up by conducting CPCs before 1st July 2018 so that the existing majority executives may get desired benefits of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy .
BSNL Management has to take immediate necessary steps to finalize that TES Group-'B' seniority as per the Hon'ble SC judgments to fill up the vacant posts to avoid further litigations.

AIBSNLEA was formally launched on 1st May, 2004 by merging 10 DoT recognized Group-'B' officers Associations & thus represents in true sense all disciplines of Executives of BSNL i.e. Telecom Engineering, Telecom Finance & Accounts, Civil / Electrical / Arch./ TFs Engineering Wings, Personnel Staffs (PA/PS/PSS), CSS Staffs, AD(O/L) & General Disciplines of BSNL.
So , AIBSNLEA is the only one association standing/fighting for all the benefits of all the executives in Telecom Finance & Accounts department . From the very beginning, one association has been standing/fighting against the profits of the executives in Finance & Accounts department through series of destructive measures . Last one in the series was their destructive letter to CMD BSNL demanding no more recruitment of Finance & Accounts personal to BSNL . But, as usual, AIBSNLEA has to fight for Finance & Accounts department by writing to CMD to recruit young JAOs for the benefit of BSNL .
Thus only because of AIBSNLEA, young DR-JAOs are joining to BSNL. AIBSNLEA sincerely Welcomes every one of you to BSNL.

GS writes to:
1. Shri Manoj Sinha Ji, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications (I/C), New Delhi regarding:
(A). Our serious concern over Transfer of BSNL Assets to DoT.
2. Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL regarding:
(A). Filling-up of the vacant Four Executive Director (ED) posts in BSNL – Our concern regarding.
(B). Discrimination and anomaly between executives of Civil/Electrical/Architecture/TF and Finance/Telecom - Reg.
Meeting with GM(Pers): GS, President and AGS (DR) met GM(Pers) and discussed regarding implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy and requested to discuss the observations given by Jt. Secy. so that the same can be informed to our members. GM(Pers) appreciated our concern and discussed point wise all the observations made by JS (Admn.). The following discussions took place.
a) CPSU cadre hierarchy: GM(Pers) informed that response on CPSU cadre hierarchy proposal approved by BSNL MC has been received from Jt. Secy. (Admn) DoT, Govt. nominee Director of BSNL Board wherein he has given some objections in the proposal submitted by the BSNL viz.
i) In the BSNLs proposal cleared by BSNL MC will create financial and legal implications due to effective date of implementation from 01.01.2017. In view of this JS has suggested to give date of effect from prospective date
ii) The existing vacancies are to be filled up subject to outcome of court case by conducting CPCs.
iii) Prior approval of BSNL Board/DoT is required wherein promotions affecting pension instead of only BSNL MC approval.
iv) Existing EPP shouldn't be continued in BSNL after implementation of CPSU hierarchy.
v) BSNL HR plan has not been finalized on the required no. of posts which needs clarification.
vi) The Screening committee has to be conducted on every time bound functional promotions under CPSU cade hierarchy instead of automatic promotion for the executives working in higher scales.
vii) The clause 5.6 is irrelevant para on AGM (Adhoc) as no vacancy based promotion up to AGM.
viii) Date of financial upgradation E4-E5 and E5-E6 has to be explained since the CPSU time bound functional promotions are limiting up to E4 scale only.
ix) Any functional promotion in the same scale no additional increment is allowed.
x) The bench mark should be very good (35) for OC and Good (31) for SC/ST instead of good (31) and Average (27) bench mark.
xi) Promotion to be given in the feeder cadre as per existing policy, if there is no court stay order is pending on promotion.
xii) All the cadres seniority lists should be finalized immediately etc.
GM Pers told that these issues needs to be examined and submitted to the JS for consideration before submitting the final proposal to the BSNL Board. We expressed our serious concern against the observations made by JS (Admn.) DoT wherein the date of effect has been suggested from prospective date, similarly the eligibility condition from SDE/AO to DE/CAO promotion is now prescribed 12 years' service instead of 5/7 years of service and increase in bench mark etc. will not at all benefit the executives rather will put them into loss.
We further requested to consider date of effect from the last DPC date/ year of recruitment and to consider our views/ suggestions given earlier on all the clauses vide our letter no. AIBSNLEA/CHQ/CPSU/2017 dated 15.11.2017. Also requested to expedite CPCs on priority.
b) Filling up of the Vacant Group-A and Group-B equivalent posts: We requested GM(Pers) to initiate CPCs to fill up the vacant Group-A and Group-B level posts in all wings i.e. telecom , finance , electrical ,civil , Arch, Telecom factory (Engg. Wings) subject to outcome of the Court cases as per the management committee approval. GM (Pers) assured for an early action to move the proposal for initiating CPCs in all disciplines
c) Posting of LDCE qualified JTOs on promotion to SDE: we requested to issue promotions orders for LDCE qualified JTOs to the post of SDEs subject to VC in view of the decisions taken by the Management committee, in line with the some previous promotion orders. Immediately, GM (Pers.) contacted to GM(Vig.) in this regard . GM (Vig.) has told that he will take opinion of CVO BSNL and convey to Pers. cell. GM (Pers) assured that immediate action will be taken after getting opinion of CVO.
d) Promotion from JTO to SDE(Telecom.) SCF quota:- We requested GM(Pers) to initiate CPC to fill up the vacant TES Group-B posts since the judgement of Hon'ble High Court Kerala is expected to be pronounced after 23rd May 2018. Since the new SDE RR has been notifying on seniority fixation in SDE cadre on ROTA Quota basis which may allow favorable judgement, this will allow promotions. More than 10000 SDE(Telecom.) vacant posts are there which needs immediate filling up. Earlier the CPC was initiated to fill up about 6000 SDE (T) posts but due to stay orders the same was held up. Most of the APARs of the eligible JTOs were accessed through screening process for promotion thus now only one or two years APARs needs to be accessed for promotion. GM (Pers) mentioned that the VCRs have already been called from the Circles and the action to initiate CPC will be take shortly.
e) Implementation of Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement on TES Group-‘B' Seniority cases: We requested for early implementation of Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement on TES Group-‘B' Seniority cases to avoid contempt. After detail discussions, GM (Pers.) mentioned that Committee constituted regarding 147 SDEs case will finalize its report /observation shortly and assured that to Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement will be implemented soon in its true sprit to avoid contempt of court cases. He also mentioned that rule 206 implementation case is in progress for implementation and it will be implemented immediately after completion of 147 case.
(vi) Consideration of request / tenure transfers of SDEs/DEs and DGMs: We requested for request transfers / modification / implementation of tenure transfers of SDEs/DEs and DGMs. GM(Pers.) assured to look into the matter.
Issue of increment on regular promotion to a scale:
BSNL Corporate Office issues orders regarding Pay fixation matters relating to BSNL Employees under provisions of EPP - Issue of increment on regular promotion to a scale - CAT Principle Bench New Delhi orders dated 21.12.2017.
It is worth while to mention that AIBSNLEA only has initiated and filed the case in Hon'ble PBCAT New Delhi and got quashed the DoT's disputed letter date 05.07.2017 for all irrespective of any discrimination.
Meeting with Member (F) DoT:
GS, President, AGS (DR) met Member (F), DoT and discussed regarding:
a) Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit: We apprised Member (F) about the discussions had between Hon’ble MoSC (I/C) and the representatives of All union and Associations and requested to use her good office for early implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit as recommended by BSNL Board. We also apprised that the reply from DPE in this regard has also been received in DoT long before. Now the administrative ministry can consider implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL as per its recommendations on affordability clause. Member (F) told that she will examine the case positively and give the concurrence to the proposal . She mentioned that she will support in respect of PRC implementation in BSNL.
Meeting with Dir(PSU) DoT:- GS, President, AGS (DR) met Dir(PSU) DoT and discussed regarding.
a) Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit: We requested Dir(PSU) for the implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit as recommended by BSNL Board. We also pleaded that administrative ministry can consider implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL as per its recommendations on affordability clause. However, the reply from DPE in this regard has also been received in DoT long before. Dir(PSU) mentioned that the DPE reply has been given cognizance by all the Sr. Officers in DoT but further action is yet to be taken. It seems that the work regarding preparation of Cabinet note for relaxation in the affordability clause has not yet started in DoT. This a serious situation and all the Unions and Associations of BSNL Should immediately decide their strategies to impress upon DoT for the settlement of this issue otherwise the issue will linger on in DoT.
b) Reply to BSNL on CPSU cadre hierarchy: Dir (PSU) confirmed that Jt. Secy. (Admn) Dot being the Govt. Nominee Director of BSNL Board has sent his observations to BSNL for the rectification in the CPSU Cadre hierarchy proposal before its placement in the next BSNL Board meeting which scheduled to be held on 28thMay 2018.

To reduce legal expenses the volume of amount will be examine and on that basis only appeals to the higher Benches will be proposed.

Release of Long stay request Transfer Orders :

We requested to consider the rotational transfer of sensitive posts within circle office . GM informed that the process is already on .
As we have communicated internally on 27-04-2017, Powered by the very righteous and strong stand of AIBSNLEA Kerala , it is reliably understood that , circle office is releasing the request transfers of SDE/JTOs who were transferred out on long stay from parent BA in 2016 by giving suitable substitute by Operating SDE long stay list : despite prolonged obnoxious stand of another association to “NOT TO OPERATE” the SDEs long stay list for the reason known to them only .
In a first , the orders will be released for those who were transferred in April-2016. On our strong request, administration agreed to release remaining request transfers Subsequently. First set of orders will be released in this week itself.
