27.09.2019: Progress in DGM (Adhoc) promotion - Meeting with Director (HR): DE to DGM promotions are badly affected due to an MA filed by the BSNL in Hon CAT, Chandigarh seeking permission for DGM (Adhoc) promotion which was repeatedly getting adjourned, without hearing. Now, it is posted to December, 2019. The DGM DPC has almost been over in the first week of January 2019. But due to the pending court cases it could not be concluded till date. Meanwhile, now no objection from all the 5 applicants in the original OA for going ahead with the DGM(Adhoc) promotions have been obtained in the last week. Thus one of the major hurdles has now been over in this case. GS, AGS (Finance) and FS met Director (HR) and PGM (Pers) along with the GS & AGS of SNEA in the evening and requested to expedite the process so that promotion orders can be issued by Monday, 30.09.2019. Director (HR) assured to make all efforts to issue the promotion orders by Monday even though a lot of formalities are pending.

27.09.2019: Meeting with CMD BSNL: GS & AGS (Finance) met CMD BSNL. We enquired about the outcome of yesterday’s meeting in PMO regarding Revival of BSNL, disbursement of Salary for the Month of September’ 2019, remittance of salary recoveries & other payments like Electricity bills & Rent etc., CMD BSNL mentioned that no positive decision has emerged in the yesterday’s PMO Meeting. A Committee consists of Four Secretaries was formed with the directions to study whether Revival of BSNL is necessary and submit it’s report within a week. CMD BSNL appreciated our concern and mentioned that presently we are earning the revenue only about Rs.1300 crores per month whereas our monthly expenditure is more than 2200 crores. In the month of Sept.’ 2019 we have to pay the quarterly payment of Principal & Interest to the tune of Rs.750 crores to various Bank Loans and huge amount towards Electricity Bills is also pending. Today we have released Rs.300 crores including Electricity Bills. Hence for the disbursement of the salary for Sept.’ 2019, we are depending on our cash flow only to be received from tomorrow onwards. Since Nationalised Banks are not come forward to sanction loans to BSNL on the basis of ‘Letter of Comfort’ issued by DoT, we have no other option but to earn more revenue to meet out all our expenditures including salary as well as we have to minimize the expenditures including reduction in the Contractual Labours. We requested that periodical meetings with the General Secretaries of the Unions and Associations, who are also the Stakeholders of the Company may be conducted to get better results and coordination between Management and Employees for the betterment of the BSNL. We further suggested that before issuing of the instructions to the field units to achieve the targets and deduction of salary/ disciplinary action for not achieving the targets etc., the Strategies to be evolved to come out of the present crisis, the working pattern of the BSNL Executives/ Non-executives in the changed scenario and better utilization of BSNL Manpower in Marketing & other Outdoor Activities to compete with the other Private Operators to be discussed with the Representatives of the Recognized Unions and Associations of BSNL for the betterment of the Company and to regain its original pristine glory. After the detailed discussions, CMD BSNL appreciated our concern and opined that AIBSNLEA may come out with the suggestions for the betterment of BSNL and to maximize the revenue. CMD further assured the Management is planning to conduct the combined meeting of all Unions and Associations with the Management in the 2nd week of October’ 2019. Regarding DE to DGM (T) Promotion, we requested CMD BSNL to issue necessary instructions for the immediate issuance of DGM (T) Promotion order on or before 30.09.2019 subject to VC clearance. CMD mentioned that he is not the aware of the latest status of the case. However, he advised to discuss the matter with Director (CM/HR).

Director (CM/HR) appreciated our concern and mentioned that Management is working out to combine the transfer orders with the DE to DGM Promotion orders. However, he assured that if the DGM Promotion orders are delayed, the request transfers cases of those who are at the age of 58+ and on genuine Medical Grounds cases will be considered.


C) Request transfers in the cadre of DET/AGM at own cost on genuine Medical Grounds & 58+ age:- We requested to consider the request transfers on own cost in respect of DEs who have already completed 58 years of age and on genuine medical grounds cases. Director (CM/HR) assured that the genuine cases will be considered.

We responded positively and requested the Director (CM/HR) that the BSNL Management should also come forward to conduct periodical meetings with the General Secretaries of the Recognized Unions and Associations to get better results & coordination between Management & Employees for the betterment of the BSNL. We further suggested that the strategies to be evolved to come out of the present crisis, the working pattern of the BSNL Executives/ Non-executives in the changed scenario for better utilization of BSNL Manpower in Marketing & other outdoor activities to compete with the other Private Operators to be discussed with the Representatives of the Recognized Unions and Associations of BSNL for the betterment of the Company and to regain its original pristine glory.

AGM/DE to DGM (Engg) Promotion:- We expressed our serious concern over the non-issuance of Ad-hoc DGM(T) promotions as there is no stay on promotions and nearly 1150 DGM(T) vacancies are available now but the AGMs eligible for DGM promotion are only 1126. We requested BSNL management may take immediate steps to promote all the eligible AGMs to DGMs against the vacancies on ad-hoc basis.

PGM (Pers.), after detailed discussion, elaborated that the promotion is held up due to Hon.ble Chandigarh CAT Court directions, wherein BSNL has filed MA in Hon.ble CAT Chandigarh for early hearing but could not heard due to one or another reason for the past few months.

PGM (Pers.) further mentioned that the promotion for DGM(T) can be given if all the applicants give a declaration mentioning therein that [we have no objection if our name will also be included in the promotion orders and the case of Seniority can be decided later on.]

We replied that it can be tried by contacting all the applicants in both the Court Cases by the Pers. Section and the Association can also extend the best help in this regard to sort out the issue of long awaited DGM(T) promotion orders.

We finally requested PGM (Pers.) to kindly use his good offices for the issuance of DGM(T) Promotion orders on ad-hoc basis before 30.09.2019. We hope that some positive response will come from both the sides to sort out the matter so that the promotion orders can be released early.

Request transfers in the cadre of DGM (T):- We requested to convert West Bengal Circle (except Kolkata) into Soft Tenure station so that shortage of Executives in WB Circle can be managed and the DGMs/TDMs working in WB Circle can be transferred to their home circles after completion of the tenure period. We have also requested PGM (Pers) to consider the request transfers cases on humanitarian grounds since they are facing many problems in their old age of 58+. PGM (Pers) immediately spoken to CGM WBT over phone and requested him to send the proposal/ recommendation for the same. PGM (Pers.) assured us to look into the matter and sort out the issue after discussion with Director (HR) shortly. 

Request transfers in the cadre of CAOs:- We requested for the consideration of request transfers in the cadre of CAOs. PGM (Pers) immediately directed DGM (Pers) to put up the same.

Request transfers in the cadre of DET/AGM:- We requested to consider the request transfers on own cost in respect of DEs who have already completed more than 2 years. PGM (Pers) mentioned that the request transfers are under hold as per the instructions of Director (HR) due to the financial constraints. He further advised us to discuss the matter with Director (HR).

Request transfers on genuine Medical Grounds:- We requested for consideration of the requests transfers in the cadre of AGM/DE/SDE/AOs on Medical Grounds. PGM (Pers) mentioned that the cases are under process and orders will be issued shortly. 

Promotion of regular DGM to Jt.GM:- We requested to consider the promotion of regular DGMs (presently in E5 Scale) as Jt.GM (E7 Scale) who have completed four years of service as DGM since they are not eligible for getting E6 Scale. PGM (Pers) mentioned that the matter is under consideration and pending in BSNL Board which will be considered after finalization of the HR Plan in BSNL.
