P. Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU and Com. K. Sebastin, GS, SNEA attended the meeting. Com. C. Singh, GS, NFTE is on tour. The following issues were discussed in detail wherein CMD BSNL appraised that a very important HOCC is being held in BSNL CO on 24th & 25th Sept. 2018. in this meeting mainly the developments activities and strategies to earn more revenue will be discussed. 

BSNL At Your Door steps will be launched on 24.09.2018: 
The AUAB has already taken decision to conduct BSNL At Your Doorsteps movement, to boost BSNL s revenue collection, by stepping up sales and marketing of the Company. The AUAB has also desired that, this movement should be jointly launched by the AUAB and the Management. This issue was discussed in today s meeting. Finally, the following decisions are taken. 
a.       BSNL At Your Doorsteps will be jointly launched by the AUAB. 
b.   The inauguration of this movement will take place at BSNL Corporate Office on 24th September, 2018 evening. All the CGMs will also participate in this launching. (HOCC is taking place in Corporate Office on 24th & 25th September, 2018). CMD BSNL also told that he will try to bring BSNL s Brand Ambassador on this occasion. CMD BSNL will hand over the flood relief amount to the CM, Kerala. The AUAB has already requested the CMD BSNL to deduct one day s basic pay from willing officials. In todays meeting the representatives requested that the deducted amount should be handed over by the CMD BSNL, to the Chief Minister of Kerala.

Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL: 
The representatives expressed their concern over the undue delay in the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL and also over the network congestion prevailing in many parts of the country. They drew the attention of the CMD to media reports, which have quoted the Hon.ble MoS(C) as saying that, 4G spectrum would be allotted to BSNL only in December, 2018. The CMD BSNL told that, he is taking all out efforts for the early allotment of 4G spectrum and recently he has again written an emotional letter to Secy(T), DoT for immediate allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL which has 40 watt Tx capacity whereas BSNL s 2G/3G spectrum is having 20Watt Tx capacity and this is the urgent need of hour. 

Subsidiary Tower Company
The AUAB is opposing the Subsidiary Tower Company tooth and nail. Decision has been taken to stall the Board meeting, and also for total walk out by the Executives and Non- Executives, in case Board meeting is scheduled, for giving approval for the appointment of CMD of Subsidiary Tower Company. This issue came up for discussion today. Consolidation is taking place in a big way in the telecom sector. All the small operators have closed down their business. After the recent merger of Vodafone and Idea, there are only 4 operators in each circle. BSNL, Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone - Idea. Under these circumstances, there will be very less business for the Subsidiary Tower Company and now it has no relevance to operate tower subsidiary company. Now there is no sustainability of tower subsidiary company. The BSNL Management has informed this to the government, through it s letter, written a last week only. This was explained by the CMD BSNL in today s meeting. 

Outsourcing of passive maintenance of BSNL s towers
The representatives expressed their concern at the outsourcing. The CMD BSNL replied that at present the uptime of BSNL towers is only 80% - 85%. The uptime will increase to 97%, due to this outsourcing. Further, BSNL will save Rs.100 crore by way of maintenance expenditures through outsourcing. While the active maintenance of towers would be continued to be done by BSNL, only the passive maintenance, including provisioning of batteries, engine alternators, diesel, payment of EB bill, etc., would be done by the outsourced party. The total payment for this will be Rs.6633 crores. The CMD BSNL further told that, the cases filed in the Delhi High Court and Supreme Court, against this outsourcing, by vested interests, are already dismissed. 

BSNLs 3500 of BSNL CSCs to be used by UIDAI:
The CMD BSNL informed that UIDAI has decided to utilise 3500 of BSNL s CSCs for Aadhaar authentication. For this, the UIDAI will give money for Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure (OPEX) to BSNL. The CMD BSNL told that this would help BSNL. CMD BSNL desired that govt. should allot new projects to BSNL.

19.09.2018Meeting with Director(HR), BSNL Board: GS, President  met Director(HR) BSNL Board and discussed regarding:

a) AO to CAO Promotion:  We expressed our serious concern against the delay in issuing Promotion orders from AO to CAO even after the stay order has been vacated by the Hon.ble CAT Chandigarh. Director (HR) mentioned that Sr. GM(FP) is expediting the CPC but on the verdict of the Hon.ble CAT Chandigarh and on SC/ST roster implementation the legal opinion has been sought from a Senior Advocate which will be received within 2-3 days and there after the Promotion order to fill-up the vacant CAO Posts will be issued immediately. We are expecting AO to CAO Promotion order in the next week only.

b) Holding of CPCs in all the disciplines through upgradation: We requested Director (HR) for issuing Promotion orders in all the disciplines through upgradation. Director (HR) mentioned that promotions through CPCs were being issued by upgradation also but meanwhile some Associations opposed CPCs and some individuals filed Contempt cases, which has stalled the process. However, today in the SC/ST Parliamentary Committee meeting in Parliament these two issues were raised, i.e., promotions through upgradations and SC/ST roster in CPSU Cadre Hierarchy wherein CMD BSNL replied that upgradation in all the Cadres simultaneously is under consideration and SC/ST roster applications in CPSU Cadre Hierarchy is being examined in BSNL which will be sent to DOT for clearance and thereafter it will be notified. Dir (HR) assured that  efforts will be made to fill up the vacant posts through CPCs.

What is happening at STR?

1.                Com.Rajendran Eguine Roy DE STR Madurai was promoted as DGM and posted to Kerala Circle. After one year stay at Kerala, he has requested for transfer to Tamilnadu/STR on compassionate ground that he is left with LESS THAN ONE YEAR of Service. His request was considered positively by the BSNL CO and order was issued to STR. He has requested the CGMM STR for posting at Chennai or any place within Tamilnadu area. But to everybody’s surprise, he was posted to STR, Bangalore. In the mean time, DGMs were retired in STR Circle on 30.06.2018.  Again he requested the CGM for his posting at Chennai, but his request was not considered. Our Circle Association has met the CGM and requested him for his posting at Chennai, but he has turned the deaf ear to our request. Again he has requested BSNL CO, New Delhi for posting to TNT Circle or STR TN Circle and the same was persuaded by the CHQ and the Director (HR) was kind enough to issue orders to CGM STR to post him at Tamilnadu STR. Again he has met and requested the CGM to post him at Chennai, but unfortunately his request was not at all considered. On 07.09.2018, we, the CS, ACS Com.V.Sundararajan & ACS Com.K.Leninram requested for a meeting to discuss the issue. BUT IT WAS BLATANTLY REFUSED BY THE CGM TO MEET THE CIRCLE OFFICE BEARERS OF THE ASSOCIATION. It is wondering fact that a CGM is refusing to meet the Office bearers of a Service Association, in the era of conducting opinion leaders meeting even for discussing administrative decisions and sales and marketing strategies. It is not known whether the CGM STR is living in fools’ paradise. 

The most wondering fact is that when the CGM is posted as CGM Chennai Telephones JUST 4 KMs distance from STR Head Quarters, he made hue and cry to cancel his orders. But he is insisting a DGM to go to Bangalore even though he is left with LESS THAN NINE MONTHS SERVICE for retirement.

It is learnt that one (ill) advisor who has tried to continue in STR after retirement as Consultant through back door entry, is in the back ground of the episode.

Is it wrong on our part to demand for posting of Com.Roy, who is going to retire on 30.04.2019, within STR Tamilnadu, AS PER THE BSNL CORPORATE OFFICE ORERS?

2.  Just one year back, Com.Eguine Roy was Looking after DGM Post at Madurai as per orders CGM, STR, Chennai. On joining of a regular DGM at Madurai, he was ordered to look after some area of DGMM Madurai by the STR Administration. But somebody has jumped from sky to earth, not to continue such arrangement. Administration has also yielded to their pressure. But it is not known how two regular DGMs are functioning at the same STSR, Madurai, whereas the sanctioned DGM post is kept vacant at Coimbatore. Even though there is a change in the Head of Circle, the approach is not changed.

Is it wrong on our part to demand the STR Administration to post a DGM at Coimbatore against a sanctioned post to maintain the STR more effectively?

3.             In MPLS Bangalore, many highly qualified JTOs are working to maintain the OM activities. But the OM activities are thrown to Vendors on AMC Contract basis, by which Crores of Rupees of hard earned money of BSNL is being wasted by the STR Administration.

Is it wrong to demand for an open enquiry on the above issue?

In the back drop of the above issues, AIBSNLEA TN Circle body is decided to conduct a “Mass Dharna” programme in front of the office of the CGM STR on 15.09.2018 demanding settlement of the above issues and also to put an end to the inhuman and undemocratic attitude of the CGM STR.

All the Circle Office bearers, District Secretaries and Presidents and all the comrades of the nearby SSAs are requested to participate in the agitation programme and make it successful and also to make the Administration to realise that nobody can ignore the genuine demands of our Association.

                                  AIBSNLEA Zindabad!
