(To whom it may concern)

 *Sub : Ethics, Decency and Norms in Trade     Unionism.*


Comrade, We have noted with grave concern the write up appearing in your website abusing our GS AIBSNLEA Prahlad Rai. We can understand the your frustration  because of the non implementation of CPSU CH on 1st July for which you have  claimed your victory leaps and bounds in advance on one hand and implementation of CPCs of various cadres promoting 12000 executives as per demand of AIBSNLEA on the other. Although AIBSNLEA is never against CPSU CH but was logically demanded filling up of all vacant posts before implementation of CPSU CH which management has accepted and are in a procees of implementation. This is indigestible to you and every 2nd day you are threatening for agitation which never taking place. When management is working on warfooting for promoting executives, you are threatening agitation. From this itself one can understand your level of frustration.


Now you are personally after  Prahlad Rai GS AIBSNLEA.  You have unnecessary raised the issue of retirement date of Prahlad ji being fully aware of the constitutional provisions of AIBSNLEA. As at present four CHQ office bearers are retired but all are holding their posts till the pendency of present body as per the Constitution of AIBSNLEA. BSNL management is aware of it. But you have singled out only Prahlad Rai and raised objection on his functioning as GS. If any violation of REA rules took place, BSNL management is there to look after, Is it  ethical on your part to raise such issues with the management just to settle your personal score. You have even threatened to boycott the meetings which will be attended by Prahlad Rai as GS AIBSNLEA because he is retired, forgetting the fact that you have accompanied a retired person as your president in several meetings for one and half years and still you are accompanying him as Chairman. You are even ready to compromise with the unity of unions and associations if they support or speak in favour of Prahlad Rai for the sake of satisfying your ego.

Actually you are afraid of the wonderful performance of Prahlad Rai and his team which stands in the way of your desire to establish your one-upmanship image in BSNL. You are thinking that in the absence of Prahlad Rai you can easily establish your desired image. But we are sorry comrade, he will continue to lead AIBSNLEA for some more time and will be replaced by another even more powerful Prahlad Rai in due course. You have totally forgotten that in trade union individual is not important but the policy and vision of the organisation is. If you you dont change your attitude, your organisation also going to suffer. Come to the senses comrade.

Good Bye.

12.07.2018:  Status of Court Case in the matter of Contempt Petition on SDE to DE promotions:The contempt petition and the prayer for stay on SDE to DE promotions come up for hearing today in the Hon.ble CAT Chandigarh. BSNL counsel explained to the court about the Hon.ble Supreme Court Interim Order and DOPT guidelines which allowed reservation in promotions and how BSNL has given promotions based on these orders. After arguments, Hon.ble CAT declined to grant stay on the promotions and permission granted to BSNL to file a detailed affidavit on the Contempt Petition. The case is now posted to August, 2018. Jt GM (Pers) from BSNL Corporate Office was present in the Hon.ble CAT.


SC/ST promotion: Bench to consider reservation on Aug-3.

The SC bench refused to pass any interim order, even as Attorney General K K Venugopal contended that confusion was created due to multiple orders and reservations in promotion in various departments, including Railways, was stuck.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court fixed August 3 as the date for a Constitution bench to determine if there was a requirement to reconsider the 2006 M Nagaraj judgement. The verdict by a five-judge bench has put conditions like backwardness, inadequacy of representation and overall efficiency for reservation in promotion for the SC/ST employees. A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud refused to pass any interim order, even as Attorney General K K Venugopal contended that confusion was created due to multiple orders and reservations in promotion in various departments, including Railways, was stuck. We will not pass any interim. The matter would be put for consideration on August 3, the bench said, giving 10-day time to various parties to file their written submissions. Senior advocate Indira Jaising, representing some of the petitioners, contended that the apex court was required to take a holistic view in the matter.

Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan and advocate Kumar Parimal, representing All India Equality Forum contended the orders have been passed by the apex court in Maharashtra and Punjab matters, the issue should be referred to the Constitution bench, before passing any other order.

Let them clarify on what grounds they want reference. In last 10 years, we have seen individual benches making reference, this practice has to stop somewhere. There has to be certainty in law,   he said. On November 15, last, a three-judge bench reference, this practice has to stop somewhere. There has to be certainty in law,   he said.

On November 15, last, a three-judge bench referred the matter relating to re-examination of the apex courts 2006 landmark judgement in M Nagaraj Versus Union of India to the Constitution bench.

On June 5, a vacation bench said Union government was not debarred from making promotion in   accordance with law, on a contention by the Centre that advancement of SC/ST employees was held up due to previous orders.

The apex court on May 17 in the case of Jarnail Singh and others Versus Lachhmi Narain Gupta and others said,   It is directed that the pendency of this special leave petition shall not stand in the way of Union of India taking steps for the purpose of promotion from reserved to reserved and unreserved to unreserved and also in the matter of promotion on merits.  

A Special General body meeting of AIBSNLEA Tuticorin Branch was held at GM Office Complex on 11.07.2018. Circle Secretary and Com.I.Saravanan, ACS delivered special address in the meeting. New set of office bearers of SSA Branch were elected unanimously.
The details will be uploaded shortly.
Dear Comrades,

Very sad news: Com. Kubendiran CAO/SLM expired due to sudden Cardiac arrest on 07-07-2018 at Salem by 1500hrs.
Our heartfelt condolences...

Tamil Nadu Circle financial status for the year 2017-18 

Our circle has ended with a net loss of of Rs.389 crores (Previous year Rs.180 crores).  This increase in loss is mainly because of steep decrease in mobile and broadband revenue since commercial operation of Reliance Jio.  Our operational revenue decreased by Rs.350 crores in 2017-18. 

We need not worry about the current year loss as Tamil Nadu circle has recorded loss of Rs.430 crores in 2013-14  and Rs.475 crores in 2014-15.  As we increased more than 1.5 million lines in mobile segment last year, it is time to push the sales in all verticals.  

If we increase the revenue by 1 crore per day, TN circle will record profit.   Adding 1 crore per day will be difficult but possible.  TN circle is having around 120 SDCAs.  If, each SDCA increases its revenue by one lakh per day put together from Landline, Broadband, Mobile (Prepaid/Postpaid), WLL, Leased lines, Passive Infra sharing & others, next year we will end up with profit.  There is another way is to decrease the expenditure wherever possible.  Each and every employee put our best effort to increase revenue and decrease expenditure.

The Operational loss of TN circle is Rs.104 crores against operational profit of Rs.144 crores in previous year.

1.       Posting orders for SDEs/DEs:

Posting orders are being issued on “as-is where-is basis” at present. SSA allotments will be made after Circle allotment is finally decided by the Corporate Office.

2.       Considering Request transfer of JTOs:

3.       Date of Joining for SDEs of LICE on re-allotment:

The date of joining will be the date of re-allotment order issued by Circle Office. Their Seniority will not be affected because it is based on the date of promotion.

4.        Re-allotment of Com.Sekar, SDE/KMB to BSS/KMB

It is informed by the Administration that he has been accommodated in the same station. Anyhow we request the GM to consider his case at the time posting of additional SDE/JTO to BSS/KMB.

5.  Reconstitution of Special Welfare Board including AIBSNLEA on the lines of reconstitution of the Welfare Board of BSNL CO, ND.

It will be done as per Corporate Office guidelines.

6.       Looking after arrangement in the Cadre of SDE/DE:

LA will continue for some time till Circle Allotment for SDEs/DEs are decided by the BSNL CO, ND for the post where the present incumbent is reverted and he has not been promoted on regular basis, since no transfer could be effected as of now.

7.      Request transfer case of Com.Senthil Kumaralingam, DGM/Hosur.

It is informed by the GM that he has been ordered for DGM (L/A) at Hosur and the LA period is not over, his case cannot be considered now. But it is requested  that he has gone to Hosur in the interest of service on oral request of the Administration and he has not even claimed any Transfer benefits and also the present GM has recommended the case and he is sick due to hotel meals, his case may be considered at least at the time of promotion of Regular DGM for which Administration is positive.
