22.11.2017:: Meeting with Addl. Secretary (Telecom), DoT:

GS and President along with the GS and President of AIRBSNLEWA met Addl. Secretary (T), DoT and discussed regarding:

A. Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL: We requested for implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL as per the BSNL Board decision which is already sent to DoT for approval and issuance of Presidential Directives. AST mentioned that the BSNL’s proposal on 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL is being processed. During the discussions, the AST was responsive.

 B. Payment of Pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale: We requested to consider payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale. AST mentioned that the BSNL proposal in this regard was considered and decided that DoT can not recommend payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale to DoE in view of the fact the pension contribution paid by BSNL for their employees is on different substantive grade pay scales and thereafter the employee is being retired in higher scale. So initially the pension contribution was paid in lesser amount to DoT as per the lower scale. We further pleaded that the 6th CPC in the year 2006 had recommended pension contribution to be taken on actual basic pay of the employee. In view of that, it should be considered on actual basic but AST was firm on his decision.

 C Revision of the Pension of BSNL Pensioners: We requested AST to take an early action for revision of the pension of the BSNL pensioners who are drawing Govt. Pension under Rule 37A. We explained that Sr. DDG (Estt), DoT is mentioning that the revision of pension of BSNL pensioners will be considered after the pay revision of BSNL serving employees on implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations otherwise, there will be a disparity in the pension of the BSNL pensioners who will retire later on. AST after giving patient hearing told that we will look into the matter for an early action in this regard. GS, AIRBSNLEWA gave a letter to AST in this regard which he marked immediately to the concerned section for taking an early action.

 D Additional increment case on post based proposition under EPP: AST categorically mentioned that the matter is sub-judice. So he cannot make any comment on this issue.

 E Restructuring of AD (OL) cadre in BSNL: We requested to give clearance to BSNL on restructuring of AD (OL) cadre. AST assured to look into.


22.11.2017:Meeting with PGM (Pers) , BSNL CO on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy

GS, President, AGS (HQ), AGS (FIN ) and AGS (DR) met with PGM (Pers.) and discussed about  proposed Draft CPSU cadre hierarchy. PGM (Pers.) initiated the discussion by reiterating the MC direction that CPSU proposal is being discussed with associations to make policy more employee and organisation centric. We told that response submitted by AIBSNLEA contains Para-wise suggestions, by considering them Policy can be made beneficial for both the employee and organisation.

We reiterated our stand that all pending CPCs should be completed and promotion orders should be issued before implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy and priority should be given to conduct CPCs first to fill up all the vacant post of Group-A and Group- B. Pers. cell need to take legal opinion wherever required, to break the stalemate in promotions in various cadres as per DOP&T guidelines on SC/ST rosters implementation.

PGM (Pers.) assured to work out some way to complete the CPCs processes and issue promotion orders and simultaneously finalise the CPSU Hierarchy.

We strongly opposed the MT recruitment provision at STS level in the CPSU cadre hierarchy. PGM (Pers.) told that management trainee is need of the organisation. We mentioned that  AIBSNLEA will never accept MT at STS level. We categorically told that MT recruitment at STS level will block the career prospects of all the existing executives  at JTO / JAO and SDE / AO level and they will retire at AGM level only. If management feels that BSNL need market talent then recruit MT in Sales, Marketing, HR and  Legal etc. at JTO/JAO level only. Engineering and Finance vertical are already having executives at JTO / JAO equivalent to Management Trainee. Along with this, If management feels that there is requirement at policy making level, BSNL may recruit higher management professionals at GM level with suitable experience and probation.

We also opposed ignorance of length of service and seniority in proposed draft and increase of resend period for AGM grade from 7 years to 12 years. Residency period from SDE to AGM and equivalent cadre should be maximum 7 years only.

We suggested the benchmarks should be on basis of Khan Committee report and numeric based to avoid huge dropping.

We also suggested that implemention of date of CPSU Policy should be from the date of last CPC held in that cadre instead of 01.01.2017, otherwise it will not be beneficial to the  executives in the Cadre (s) having more than 20 years of service.

The executives already in E5 scales should be given the designation of Jt. DGM immediately as per Khan Committee report.

 We suggested that before going to any final decision all cadre controlling authorities like Civil, Electrical, Arch, Finance, TF and CSS etc. should be consulted and taken care of their views / suggestions also.

 We further suggested that Pers. cell may convene a joint meeting of all executive associations for more deliberation and making a consensus on CPSU policy which is more employee and organisation centric.

 At last we requested PGM (Pers) that he should go through our view and suggestion with open mind to make CPSU Cadre hierarchy to become reality. He assured to appraise AIBSNLEA views to BSNL management committee for consideration.


22.11.2017: Wage Negotiations for workmen in Central Public Sector Enterprises:

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Honoruble Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the Wage Policy for the 8th Round of Wage Negotiations for workmen in Central Public Sector Enterprises.

 In this policy it is clearly mentioned that in those CPSEs for which the Government has approved restructuring / revival plan, the wage revision will be done as per the provisions of the approved restructuring / revival plan only.


AIBSNLEA CHQ will have a meeting with Addl. Secretary (T), DoT today at 14.30 Hrs.  and have discussions with PGM (Pers.) today at 1000 Hrs. on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy draft proposal submitted by AIBSNLEA.

21.11.2017: Meeting with CMD, BSNL:

GS President met CMD BSNL and apprised him about our discussions with Hon.ble MOSC (I/C) on implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations in BSNL and his comments. CMD BSNL mentioned that it is beneficial for BSNL that DoT should approve the BSNL Board proposal on 3rd PRC. He assured to continue his efforts in DoT to get the proposal approved.   

 Meeting with Hon.ble MoSC (I/C), Govt. of India:

GS, President, FS and AGS (HQ) met Hon.ble MOSC (I/C) Shri Manoj Sinha Ji and submitted a memorandum requesting implementation of 3rd recommendations in BSNL with full 15% fitment benefit.  We further requested him that BSNL Board has already approved that proposal on implementation of 3rdPRC recommendations in BSNL and has sent the proposal to DoT for approval wherein your kind intervention is required in getting exemption on the affordability clause from Govt. We also quoted the example of FCI which is also a Govt. converted PSU and was formed with a specific agenda and exempted from the affordability clause. Similarly, BSNL should also be exempted from the affordability clause since it was also formed from 1.10.2000 with a specific agenda on the basis of NTP-1999 to provide Telecom Services to the customers on affordable rates and to ensure national security. Hon.ble MOSC (I/C) appreciated our concern and mentioned that they are communicating BSNL Board shortly in this regard.

Director (HR) after discussions mentioned that first we should complete our discussions with PGM (Pers.) on this issue and thereafter she may be apprised. We further requested that CPCs should be expedited immediately subject to outcome of the court judgments. Director (HR) assured to look into the matter.

After getting stay order vacated the CPC will be expedited.

CPCs from JTO to SDE, SDE to DE, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, SDE(C) to EE(C) etc- We requested to fill up the vacant posts of SDE/AO and DE/CAO.
