19.09.2018Meeting with Director(HR), BSNL Board: GS, President  met Director(HR) BSNL Board and discussed regarding:

a) AO to CAO Promotion:  We expressed our serious concern against the delay in issuing Promotion orders from AO to CAO even after the stay order has been vacated by the Hon.ble CAT Chandigarh. Director (HR) mentioned that Sr. GM(FP) is expediting the CPC but on the verdict of the Hon.ble CAT Chandigarh and on SC/ST roster implementation the legal opinion has been sought from a Senior Advocate which will be received within 2-3 days and there after the Promotion order to fill-up the vacant CAO Posts will be issued immediately. We are expecting AO to CAO Promotion order in the next week only.

b) Holding of CPCs in all the disciplines through upgradation: We requested Director (HR) for issuing Promotion orders in all the disciplines through upgradation. Director (HR) mentioned that promotions through CPCs were being issued by upgradation also but meanwhile some Associations opposed CPCs and some individuals filed Contempt cases, which has stalled the process. However, today in the SC/ST Parliamentary Committee meeting in Parliament these two issues were raised, i.e., promotions through upgradations and SC/ST roster in CPSU Cadre Hierarchy wherein CMD BSNL replied that upgradation in all the Cadres simultaneously is under consideration and SC/ST roster applications in CPSU Cadre Hierarchy is being examined in BSNL which will be sent to DOT for clearance and thereafter it will be notified. Dir (HR) assured that  efforts will be made to fill up the vacant posts through CPCs.

Notice for “Mass Dharna” on 15.09.2018in front of CGM,STR, Chennai was issued. Based on the assurances to sort out the issues given by the Director (HR) and PGM (Pers), BSNL CO New Delhi to our General Secretary and CHQ President, the proposed Dharna is deferred.

Further decision will be taken in this regard as per the advice of the CHQ.

VC has been called for 621 Sr.AOs/AOs and subsequently 45 Sr.AOs/AOs for the promotion of CAOs.
District Secretaries may approach the SSA Administration and arrange to send the VC today itself. Only on receipt of the VC at BSNL Corporate Office, the Promotion orders will be issued. 
12.09.2018 Meeting with Sr.GM (FP), BSNL CO regarding to AO to CAO promotion: 
A) GS, President and AGS (Fin.) met Sr. GM FP and discussed regarding AO to CAO promotions and requested to issue promotion order to CAO Grade. Sr. GM (FP) informed that the proposal to fill up the vacant CAO posts about 600 has been approved by the Competent Authority for expediting CPC. SEA Cell has already called the VCRs of the eligible candidates from CVO. Sr.GM (FP) today met personally with CVO CO, BSNL for issuing VCRs at the earliest. Sr. GM (FP) mentioned that VCRs are expected to be received by day after tomorrow and after conduction of CPCs and approval of minutes by the Competent Authority, the promotion orders may be issued in the next week only. GM (Pers.) in our last meeting held yesterday informed that the upgradation of the posts in all the disciplines, decision will be taken by the Competent Authority only. It is understood that the Competent Authority is not happy due to filing of the Contempt cases against CMD BSNL, Director (HR) and other Officers for issuing the promotion orders on JTO to SDE and SDE to DE. The contempt cases have been filed in the Hon.ble CAT Ernakulam and Hon.ble CAT, Chandigarh by some DR. JTOs and Shri Ramesh Kumar, SDE & District Secretary, SNEA Rothak, Harayana respectively. So it seems that till the time contempt cases are not withdrawn or disposed off no upgradation of posts will be taken by the Competent Authority. 
B) Utilization of MT quota CAO Posts to Seniority quota promotions: We requested the Sr.GM(FP) to take the approval of the Management Committee of BSNL Board for the utilization of 336 MT quota CAO Posts to Seniority quota promotions till the time diversion of theses posts is approved by the BSNL Board and decision on upgradation to CAO Posts are taken.

We explained that our AOs are waiting for promotion for the last 15 years. Sr. GM (FP) appreciated our concern and explained that the proposal to fulfill the existing vacant CAO posts about 600 has been sent to GM (Pers.) for clearance to issue promotion orders. She also mentioned that the earlier proposal to upgrade the post in CAO grade is pending in Pers. cell for clearance. After the clearance and approval of the competent authority the upgradation to CAO posts will be considered. She assured for early issuance of the promotion order to fill up the vacant CAO posts the VCRs of the eligible AOs have been called from vigilance cell. We requested to issue promotion order subject to availability of VC at circle level.

We persuaded in the Pers. Cell to the concern officers for giving early clearance to the AO to CAO promotions against vacant CAO posts and upgradation to CAO posts. It is understood that shortly clearance will be given by Pers. cell for AO to CAO promotion against vacant posts but regarding upgradation of the posts in   all the discipline, decision will be by the competent authority.

What is happening at STR?

1.                Com.Rajendran Eguine Roy DE STR Madurai was promoted as DGM and posted to Kerala Circle. After one year stay at Kerala, he has requested for transfer to Tamilnadu/STR on compassionate ground that he is left with LESS THAN ONE YEAR of Service. His request was considered positively by the BSNL CO and order was issued to STR. He has requested the CGMM STR for posting at Chennai or any place within Tamilnadu area. But to everybody’s surprise, he was posted to STR, Bangalore. In the mean time, DGMs were retired in STR Circle on 30.06.2018.  Again he requested the CGM for his posting at Chennai, but his request was not considered. Our Circle Association has met the CGM and requested him for his posting at Chennai, but he has turned the deaf ear to our request. Again he has requested BSNL CO, New Delhi for posting to TNT Circle or STR TN Circle and the same was persuaded by the CHQ and the Director (HR) was kind enough to issue orders to CGM STR to post him at Tamilnadu STR. Again he has met and requested the CGM to post him at Chennai, but unfortunately his request was not at all considered. On 07.09.2018, we, the CS, ACS Com.V.Sundararajan & ACS Com.K.Leninram requested for a meeting to discuss the issue. BUT IT WAS BLATANTLY REFUSED BY THE CGM TO MEET THE CIRCLE OFFICE BEARERS OF THE ASSOCIATION. It is wondering fact that a CGM is refusing to meet the Office bearers of a Service Association, in the era of conducting opinion leaders meeting even for discussing administrative decisions and sales and marketing strategies. It is not known whether the CGM STR is living in fools’ paradise. 

The most wondering fact is that when the CGM is posted as CGM Chennai Telephones JUST 4 KMs distance from STR Head Quarters, he made hue and cry to cancel his orders. But he is insisting a DGM to go to Bangalore even though he is left with LESS THAN NINE MONTHS SERVICE for retirement.

It is learnt that one (ill) advisor who has tried to continue in STR after retirement as Consultant through back door entry, is in the back ground of the episode.

Is it wrong on our part to demand for posting of Com.Roy, who is going to retire on 30.04.2019, within STR Tamilnadu, AS PER THE BSNL CORPORATE OFFICE ORERS?

2.  Just one year back, Com.Eguine Roy was Looking after DGM Post at Madurai as per orders CGM, STR, Chennai. On joining of a regular DGM at Madurai, he was ordered to look after some area of DGMM Madurai by the STR Administration. But somebody has jumped from sky to earth, not to continue such arrangement. Administration has also yielded to their pressure. But it is not known how two regular DGMs are functioning at the same STSR, Madurai, whereas the sanctioned DGM post is kept vacant at Coimbatore. Even though there is a change in the Head of Circle, the approach is not changed.

Is it wrong on our part to demand the STR Administration to post a DGM at Coimbatore against a sanctioned post to maintain the STR more effectively?

3.             In MPLS Bangalore, many highly qualified JTOs are working to maintain the OM activities. But the OM activities are thrown to Vendors on AMC Contract basis, by which Crores of Rupees of hard earned money of BSNL is being wasted by the STR Administration.

Is it wrong to demand for an open enquiry on the above issue?

In the back drop of the above issues, AIBSNLEA TN Circle body is decided to conduct a “Mass Dharna” programme in front of the office of the CGM STR on 15.09.2018 demanding settlement of the above issues and also to put an end to the inhuman and undemocratic attitude of the CGM STR.

All the Circle Office bearers, District Secretaries and Presidents and all the comrades of the nearby SSAs are requested to participate in the agitation programme and make it successful and also to make the Administration to realise that nobody can ignore the genuine demands of our Association.

                                  AIBSNLEA Zindabad!


07.09.2018: Meeting with Director(HR) BSNL Board: GS, President & AGS (Finance) met Director(HR) BSNL Board and extended sincere thanks for the efforts taken in getting stay order vacated on Promotion from AO to CAO in the Hon.ble CAT Chandigarh by deputing Sr. GM(FP) and DGM(SEA) to brief the BSNLs Advocate and attending Hon.ble CAT Chandigarh. We also requested to issue promotion orders immediately since the CPC work has been completed. Director (HR) appreciated our concern and assured for the early issuance of AO to CAO Promotion orders.

We expressed our serious concern against the casual handling of the DE to DGM (T) stay order vacation case and contempt case against SDE to DE Promotion in the same court at Chandigarh. We explained that yesterday DE to DGM case was not even heard by Hon.ble CAT on the pretext of judgment awaited from the Hon.ble Supreme Court on SC/ST reservation and posted for hearing in October 2018 on DE to DGM case and 27th September 2018 on SDE to DE contempt case. Our members are seriously frustrated and agitated on this issue. Director (HR) appreciated our concern and directed GM (Pers.) and AGM( Legal) Pers. Cell to take immediate steps to get vacated the stay order from DE to DGM and settlement of contempt case on SDE to DE case. Director (HR) assured an early action in these cases. GM (Pers.), GM(SR), OSD and AGM (Legal) Pers. Cell were available in the meeting. 

07.09.2018: Congratulations! AO to CAO Promotion stay is vacated by  Hon.ble  CAT  Chandigarh  today. AIBSNLEA  persistent  efforts yielded result. On request of AIBSNLEA, Director(HR), BSNL Board directed GM(FP & DGM (SEA) BSNL Corporate Office, New Delhi to attend the court in person.  Accordingly, GM(FP) & DGM (SEA) met BSNLs  Advocate yesterday and briefed  the MA  filed by  BSNL for getting stay order vacated.
AIBSNLEA will continue its efforts for getting CPC expedited from AO to CAO.
