20.07.2017:3rd PRC implementation in BSNL:

The cabinet has approved 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefit to the PSU executives for their pay hike w.e.f. 01.01.2017 on 19.07.2017 in its meeting Chaired by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. Now on the basis of Cabinet approval on 3rd PRC report (DPE) Department of Public Enterprises (Govt. of India) will issue its notification shortly addressing to all the Administrative Ministries and PSUs.

As per our past experience during 2nd PRC implementation, now after the DPE notification DOT Administrative Ministry will endorse to BSNL and the BSNL Board will take decision for 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL for BSNL Executives and thereafter the Administrative Ministry after examining the BSNL Board Approval will issue the Presidential Directives for the implementation of 3rdPRC report in BSNL for its Executives

It is understood that this process dependents on the respective PSUs Board to consider 3rd PRC recommendation on the basis of their affordability conditions and any dispension in the affordability clause may perhaps be relaxed by the Administrative Ministry or Cabinet. In the case of BSNL as per 3rdPRC report the Affordability clause needs dispension in view of its operational profit/ positive AIBITA. It is to be find out from DOT whether this work has been done by DOT or through Cabinet approval in its meeting held yesterday.

AIBSNLEA closely watching all the developments and meeting all the concern officers in DPE/DOT for a favorable decision. Few days before AIBSNLEA met Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) and yesterday with Sect (T) just before the Cabinet meeting which was attended by Secy. (T) and pleaded for implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL in the interest of BSNL viability and its Executives otherwise they will be demotivated which directly will harm the BSNL Let Us, wait for DPE notification and DOT decision in this regard. Thereafter, we will decide our due course of action.

SSA News:

Tuticorin SSA:  The atrocities being done by the local Administration against our members are beyond tolerable. Notice was issued by the SSA branch for Trade Union Action programme. Subsequently the same was deferred on the assurances given by the GM. It was assured; there will be no discrimination among the executives on Association basis, since the local leadership in the Administration is completely changed.

But the things are not changed. Even now biased attitude exists even in petty issues.

a.   A DGM level officer declined his promotion and continuing as DE. For providing a Broadband connection, he approached the Administration but nothing moved, simply because he does not belong to their Association. Our Association has to take up the case.  The worthy point to mention here is, in Trichy SSA, the officers who declined DGM promotion are accommodated as ‘”Officers on Special Duty” with all the facilities attached to DGM post like Chamber, Car etc., because they are their members. We are not jealous against those officers but it pricks us when providing even BB facility is denied to such a senior officer of the same status in TT SSA, because he is not their member.

b.   Incentive scheme to motivate the staff to increase the growth of LL & BB was effective from 12.09.2016.The staff pertaining to a particular sub division was purposefully avoided by the AGM (Sales), only because the officer in-charge of the Sub-division is not their member.

c.   ‘T’ shirts purchased for marketing activities for about Rs.30,000- are kept in Godown for more than Two months. Even though there are so many staff working in marketing section and proving their marketing talent the ‘T’ shirts are not supplied to them. For keeping in Godown, why the ‘T’ shirts are purchased? It is known only to the Tuticorin Administration.  These types of activities are de motivating the staff.

Still we hope, the GM, Tuticorin will intervene and instruct the Officers at the helm of affairs to run the administration in impartial manner.

If things are not improving and the biased attitude continues, there is no other option except to revive the trade union programme, which was deferred.

Circle Association will take up the issues at the appropriate forum.
