During discussions OSD to Dir (HR) informed that to promote JTO to SDE up to the year of 2010 batch, 7000 SDEs posts are required and at present we are having sufficient vacant SDEs posts thus promotions can be made.

OSD informed that to promote SDEs, who were promoted up to the year 2009-10, we need 5000 additional DEs posts which is possible through up-gradation only. However, efforts are being made to promote 5000 SDEs to DE cadre from TES Group-B seniority list no. 8 & 9.

Regarding AO to CAO promotion OSD immediately discussed with AGM (Legal),  Pers (Cell) to tag all the three court cases in Hon.ble CAT, Chandigarh on Catchup rule of SC/ST roster. AGM (Legal) assured him to discuss with the BSNLs lawyer. He assured that upgradation in CAO cadre will also be done along with other cadres.

In Civil/ electrical/ Architectural/ Telecom. Factory /PA/PSS/CSS cadres upgradation will also be considered along with the above cadres. OSD further mentioned that GM(Pers) is doing exercise to calculate the exact number of posts required for promotions to cover up to the year of 2010 DPC or year of recruitment. After the approval of the competent authority further action regarding CPCs in all discipline will be taken shortly. We requested for an early action in this regards.

Dear Comrades,

Congratulations !!!

BSNL issued clarificatory orders on "Grant of One additional Increment on post based promotion in the same Pay Scale " under provisions of Para II(V) of EPP. 

This is issued in light of the Judgement pronounced by PB CAT New Delhi on  21.12.2017  which squashed and set aside the DoT orders of withdrawing the additional increment. The OA was  filed by AIBSNLEA.

According to this order all the JAOs/JTOs and other equivalent cadres in E-2 pay scale and recently promoted as AOs/SDEs will get one additional Increment in the same scale and the DNI will not change.

Similarly the SDEs and other equivalent cadres in E-4 Scale and promoted as DEs are also eligible for one additional increment without change in their DNI. 

All the promoted Executives may submit their Charge Reports on the date of promotion without waiting for DNI. They will get the additional increment on the Date of Promotion and the next Increment will be drawn on their DNI. 

This is the additional bonanza to the promoted Executives.

However these benefits will not be applicable to those Executives who have crossed their promoted Scale of Post.

*AN OPEN LETTER*

(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.

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.

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.

30.06.2018: AIBSNLEA Vision and Positive approach benefited thousands of Executives by promotion through CPCs: AIBSNLEA since beginning was trying to get filled up all the vacant Group-B and Group-A (STS) equivalent posts and simultaneously persuaded for the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy since Feb-2011. AIBSNLEA was demanding CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation in the form of Non Post Based time bound functional promotions upto the level of SG-JAG level and post based promotions after SAG level and above. Accordingly a Joint Committee headed by the then PGM(FP) Sh. S.R. Kapoor was constituted wherein AIBSNLEA, SNEA & AIGETOA were the participants but the Committee could not reach the unanimity and Mr. S.R. Kapoor retired. Then Sh. N.K. Narang, the then PGM(SR) headed the Committee but this Committee also failed to submitted the report. Thereafter, our CMD BSNL Sh. Anupam Shrivastava ji intervene in the matter and a new Committee headed by the then ED(NB) Sh. M.A. Khan was constituted having the GM(Estt.), GM(EF), Jt. GM(Pers.) official side members and Association side AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA as the members.

This Committee after number of marathon meetings submitted the report in Sept-2016 but the report was not liked by the then PGM(Pers.) and he kept it pending. Again we took up the matter with CMD/Director(HR) BSNL and after their intervention PGM(Pers.) redrafted the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy in discussion with so called majority Associations and gave presentation to CMD/Director(HR) BSNL wherein he limited the functional promotions up to Sr. SDE level only, the bench marks were made stringent and Jt. DGM designation to E-5 grade to AGMs was not considered. AIBSNLEA immediately protested against such dilution of Khan Committee report and demanded immediately to take the views of AIBSNLEA also as 2nd majority Association. Management Committee of BSNL Board immediately directed PGM(Pers.) to take the views of AIBSNLEA also after discussions PGM(Pers.) hold discussions with AIBSNLEA and incorporated some suggestions viz. functional promotion up to AGM Level, Jt. DGM designation in E-5 scale and numerical benchmarks for promotion to avoid heavy droppings etc. The cutoff date from last CPC or year of recruitment, eligibility SDE/AO to DE/CAO was not considered 7 years instead of 12 years and the cutoff date was decided 01.01.2017.

This revised CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal was considered by the Management Committee of BSNL Board but the BSNL Board approached the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy on prospective dated which created problem that seniors was not getting any benefit of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy rather were being put in loss. In view of this, AIBSNLEA impressed upon the management for the filling up of all the vacant Group-B and GroupA (STS) level posts immediately before the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. AIBSNLEA concern was appreciated by the management and they started the process of CPCs immediately. In the first phase management Committee allowed Pers. Cell to conduct the CPCs in accordance with the promotions being made by other ministries. Meanwhile Hon.ble Supreme Court delivered the judgment on SC/ST roster implementation in promotions and accordingly BSNL Management immediately issued 1987JTO to SDE(T) LDCE quota promotions and 3000 JTO to SDE(T) SCF quota promotions.
AIBSNLEA continued its efforts to get conducted CPCs in all disciplines which resulted 2227 JAO to AO promotions, 3450 SDE(T) to DE Promotions, JTO(TF) to SDE(TF) and SDE(TF) to AGM(TF) promotions, SDE(E) to EE(E) and JTO(C) to SDE(C) promotions. Now efforts are being made to get CPCs conducted from AO to CAO, JTO (T) to SDE(T) to fill up all the vacant posts. The promotion orders from JTO (E) to SDE (E) and SDE (C) to EE (C) are expected shortly.

All the above promotion orders have been issued and are being issued with the untiring and dedicated efforts of AIBSNLEA. Some vested interests tried to block the CPCs but failed. AIBSNLEA always demanded CPSU Cadre hierarchy on the basis of Khan Committee report to benefit the executives in true sense/sprit.

AIBSNLEA congratulated all the executives got promoted and now getting promoted. History has been created in BSNL.

AIBSNLEA is extremely thankful to CMD, BSNL, Direrctor(HR), Director(CM), Director(CFA/EB), CGM(Legal), GM(Pers.), GM(Estt.), Jt. GM(Pers.), GM(SR) and the concerned officers of Pers. Cell, who involved in the process of CPCs and completed successfully by their Hard Work within the assigned dead line.
