<<<Click here for letter>>>

Today CS, CP and ACS Com.Sundararajan met GM (HR&Admn.) and CGM and discussed the following issues;

1.        To take up the case with BSNL CO regarding non-recovery of Group Term Insurance  for the officers those who have wrongly opted for it and now represented for non-recovery.

It is informed that a letter will be written on receipt of the representations received in Circle Office from the individuals.

 2.        Transfer case of Com.Suresh Khanna JTO, Trichy to Madurai.

GM HR is not in favour of our request. We have explained that  the case is fully justified on medical grounds and also some other cases were already considered even with in one month whereas he has already completed more than a year at Trichy SSA.

CGM agreed to discuss the case with GM HR. We hope the case will be considered favourably.

 3.        Transfer case of Com.Senthil Kumaralingam.

It was informed by the GM HR that the case is under process and orders will be issued shortly.

 4.        Rotational transfer in the cadre of SDEs at Thanjavur SSA.

The case was discussed in detail. Due to the present finanial crisis prevailing in BSNL, Corporate Office has issued instructions that the request transfers will be considered only at Own Cost even after three years. And also to minimise the transfer to the extreme necessity. There is no restriction in filling up the shortage. At this juncture rotation transfer simply for the sake of transfer is not acceptable.

GM HR agreed to discuss with the PGM/Thanjavur.

 We have appraised the case to the CGM also. Let us wait for a day or two for result.

On the repressive measures, AUAB explained that FR 17A is not part of CDA Rules or it is not adopted by BSNL so far and hence it is not applicable for BSNL employees. The action initiated under FR 17A is not valid, AUAB explained to management. CMD BSNL & Director(HR) assured to look into the matter.

A Mass DHARNA  will be conducted in front of CGM Office on 08.03.2019 by the AUAB TN Circle protesting delay in payment of Salary for the month Feb-2019 and demanding immediate payment.
AUAB Leaders Meeting with Director (CFA/CM/Finance) Shri Vivek Benzal : AUAB Leaders met Director (CFA/CM/Finance) and expressed our serious concern and protested against the non-disbursement of February 2019 Salary to all the Circles except BSNL Corporate Office, Kerala, Odisha and J&K Circle. AUAB Leaders also informed the Director (CFA/CM/Finance), this partial attitude of disbursement of February 2019 Salary in a selective manner to some of the Circles created frustration and demotivation among the BSNL Employees. Director (CFA/CM/Finance) informed that he has taken over the charges of Director(Finance) today morning only and assured AUAB Leaders to analyse the financial condition and to take immediate action for the payment of the February 2019 Salary. He further mentioned that Circles are demanding funds for Operation and Maintenance which also needs to be seen.

We requested the Director (CFA/CM/Finance) for the immediate release of funds for the disbursement of February 2019 Salary so as to achieve all the targets before 31st March 2019 and to maximize the revenue by the BSNL Executives and Non-Executives with full motivation. Director (CFA/CM/Finance) assured that he will try to sort out the issues within this week. He informed that the BSNL Management is writing a letter to Secretary (T) for enhancing the Ceiling Limit for availing CAPEX Loan which will be discussed in the BSNL Board Meeting most probably in the next week and after the Board approval it will be sent to DoT for consideration. Comrade GS & President attended this meeting.

Meeting with Director (HR): GS and President met Director (HR), BSNL Board and discussed regarding
A) Payment of February 2019 Salary:
 We expressed our serious concern against non-disbursement of February 2019 Salary to all the Circles except BSNL Corporate Office, Kerala, Odisha and J&K Circle. Dir (HR) appreciated our concern and mentioned that now Director (Fin) Charge has been made over to Director (CFA) who will be looking in to the matter. However, efforts are being made for arranging funds to release the February 2019 salary but now everybody should try to increase the Revenue of BSNL to ensure timely disbursement of salary.
B) DE to DGM (T) Promotion:
 We requested to issue DE to DGM (T) Promotion orders to fill up about 900 vacant DGM (T) Posts. We also resented against the 30 days’ time given in calling the objections on DE Seniority List whereas it could have been 15 days’ time also to examine the Seniority based on the objections and issuing Promotion orders. Dir (HR) assured to discuss the matter with PGM (Pers) for an early action. 
C) Request transfers in the cadre of DGM (Fin):
 We requested Dir (HR) for the early issuance of request/tenure transfers in the cadre of DGM(Fin). Director (HR) assured to look in to the matter.
Shri G.Nagarethinam DGM CM Erode lost his wife at Bhavani on 04.03.2019.
AIBSNLEA TN CIRCLE extends its deepest condolences on the sad demise.
Protest demonstrations against non-payment of salary: 
It is very unfortunate that payment of salaries of the Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL, for the month of February, 2019, is not made today. All of us are aware that BSNL is not getting the permission of the DoT, for taking bank loans. The AUAB has already demanded that the DoT should immediately permit BSNL for taking bank loans, to tide over the crisis. However, so far, the DoT has not given the necessary approval.

The AUAB has called on the employees to organise demonstrations tomorrow the 01.03.2019, protesting the non-payment of salary, and demanding the DoT, to immediately grant sanction to BSNL, for taking bank loans.

All the members of AIBSNLEA are requested to participate actively in the said demonstration..............
