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 should not 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.

ix) Any functional promotion in the same scale no additional increment is allowed.

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.

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.

We further pleaded that BSNL pensioners are not playing any role in the affordability of BSNL, thus their pension revision should be delinked with the pay revision and as per the BSNL reply to DoT that at present the pension liability of BSNL pensioners is about Rs. 4200 Crores and after the revision of pension with 15% fitment benefit it will increase Rs. 4800 Crores. DDG (Estt.) lastly told that he will further discuss the matter with the concern officers of Estt. Cell of DoT.

c) Payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum pay scale: We requested DDG(Estt.) to send the BSNLs proposal to DoE with the comments of internal finance of DoT to charge pension contribution of BSNL employee on actual basic pay instead of maximum of the pay scale as per the DOPT instruction available. DDG(Estt.) mentioned that the comments internal finance DoT are awaited.
