"BSNL broken another history: A 1990 rect JTO(Arch) given promotion as SDE(Arch) after 28 years of service as JTO. Last week BSNL promoted a JTO(TF) of 1991 rect as SDE. While working for the welfare of all the sections, SNEA always stand for such deprived lot to bring them at par with others," proclaims the recognised association website.

Is this a matter of pride? Is this not a shame on the recognised association which enjoyed all facilities of a recognised association ever since 2004? Is this the way the association 'STANDS FOR' deprived lot? Perhaps leaving things uncared for years and chest-beating when the issues resolve on their own is part of its 'history'.

What have they achieved in the past one and a half years after officially crowned as recognised association?

E2, E3 pay scales in place of E1, E2 ? No
Cadre hierarchy? No
30% Superannuation benefit for BSNL recruited employees? No
Rs.22820 pay scale for JTOs of Batch 2007 onwards ? No
Implementation of 3rd pay revision in BSNL? No

Formation of BSNL Tower corporation? a big YES

The recognised association and the support association are enjoying the facilities since the year 2004. Like political parties, they both played the 'vote bank' game alternatively. In the name of getting the issues of BSNL direct recruits resolved, they betrayed both the BSNL absorbed as well as BSNL recruited executives all these years, meanwhile enjoying the exclusive power of negotiation with Management, membership in committees, special casual leave and more than all, misusing the facility of immunity and misusing the recognition as a tool to harass and coerce members of other associations to join them.
Any how, BSNL executives have by now become aware of the fact that whatever move they make on issues is to safeguard their top leadership.


On the other hand, AIBSNLOA has been doing whatever possible at the right time and in the right direction. When other associations were basking under the glory of their 'achieving' Board approval for cadre hierarchy, AIBSNLOA met GM (Pers) on 30.5.2018 and pressed for completion of promotion in all grades before implementing the cadre hierarchy. GM (Pers) who was to go on leave from next day, kick started the process by issuing instructions to all officers and officials of Personnel section to start processing the matter. Interim order of Supreme court and final order from Ernakulam High court came handy at the right time. Promotion orders started raining. Realising the sudden turn of events the recognised and support associations competed to reap the outcome, notwithstanding dramatic mudslinging on each other as to who went to court on what issue and who stands for which cadre. Ignoring all these, AIBSNLOA continues to pursue promotion to CAO grade, promotion to DGM (T), promotion to DE from seniority list 8 and promotion to SDE for the left out absorbees and BSNL recruited JTOs who have put in long years of service.

AIBSNLOA always works silently with the only thought about welfare of the Executives. For example AIBSNLOA relentlessly and successfully pursued grant of E6 scales to adhoc DGMs. Declaration of the Udhampur SSA and Rajouri and some stations of J&K circle as hard tenure station and tenure of these station modified from 2 years to one and half/ one year and provisioning of all due powers and facilities to 'Looking after' executives. AIBSNLOA's role in revision of ADOL pay scale cannot be denied. A long list of many small but significant achievements have earlier been published in this website.

It is time for all absorbed as well as BSNL recruited executives to see the truth and to rally behind AIBSNLOA. With a little support AIBSNLOA has been able to achieve many things during the past 10 years. With large scale support, AIBSNLOA can and will resolve major issues to the advantage of executives.
We appeal to all executives who have by now understood the reality to come out openly and join AIBSNLOA.


This is time for a wise decision.

GM (SR) further said that efforts will be made for submission of report within the shortest period of time so that action will be taken by the DOT at the earliest. Apart from this, discussions were also held on revised promotion policy (cadre hierarchy) and reservation in revised promotion policy and issue of promotion orders in different grades.

Meeting with General Manager (pers):

GS met GM (Pers) on dated 09.07.2018 and discussed the following:

(i) SDE to DE/AGM promotion from the list number 8 onward:

GS requested GM (Pers) to consider issue of promotion orders from SDE to DE/AGM from the seniority list number 8 onwards. GM (Pers) said that it is under consideration and after getting approval from competent authority promotion orders will be issued.

(ii) JTO to SDE promotion:

We also requested GM (Pers) to issue promotion orders from JTO (T) to SDE(T) for all the existing vacancies at the earliest as a huge number of BSNL recruited JTOs are waiting for their first promotion even after 18 year of their service as JTOs. We said that we are aware that due to court case it is being delayed but management can take an appropriate decision, as taken in issue of other promotion orders. We requested early action in this regard.

(iii) DE/AGM to DGM promotion:

We also requested GM (Pers) for considering issue of orders of promotion from DE/AGM to DGM since after issue of SDE to DE/AGM promotion orders about 10,000 DEs/AGMs will be working against which only 700 DGM will be available. As per HR plan the ratio between DGM to DE should be 1:4 which means about 2500 DGMs will be required. Therefore Pers section should not only move a proposal of creating additional 1800 posts for DGM but also take necessary action for promoting all the eligible AGMs/DEs. GM(Pers) told us that our proposal may be considered but due to court case pending in CAT Chandigarh BSNL management cannot take any decion in this regard. However he informed us that in this regard soon a MA will be filed by BSNL in CAT Chandigarh. GM (Pers) said that after getting favorable decision necessary will be taken for issuing of promotion orders from DE to DGM.

Updates from General Secretary:


(1) SDE (T) to DE Promotion:

CMD BSNL has reportedly approved the proposal for upgradation of about 2300 SDE posts to DE posts and diverting 1000 Management Trainee posts for DE promotion, so that about 4800 SDEs of list no 5,6 & 7 can be promoted as DE.

(2) DE to DGM promotion:

Before initiating the process for DPC, PERS section is said to be preparing to file a Miscellaneous Application in CAT Chandigarh for allowing BSNL for conducting DPC without following the catch-up rule in view of recent decision of Hon'ble SC of India and order issued by DOP&T on reservation in promotions. After getting orders from Hon'ble CAT necessary action will be taken for conducting DPC from DE to DGM. A favourable decision in the MA will also pave the way for promotion from AO to CAO and other promotions too where DPC have been held up due to direction given by courts to conduct DPC by considering catch-up rule.

(3) JTO (TF) to SDE (TF) and SDE(TF) to AGM (TF) promotions:

As per our information various hurdles have been removed and now DPC work will commence soon. Final seniority list of JTO (TF) has been uploaded in our website and DPC for 34 clearly available vacancies of SDE (TF) will be held soon. We will make efforts to ensure that DPC is held for all the available vacancies. DPC for SDE to AGM will be held for 14 vacancies.

Meeting with DGM (FP):

GS met DGM (FP) on 15.06.2018 and discussed about Promotion to AO and CAO consequent to the interim orders of Hon'ble Supreme Court on reservation in promotion. We also refered to our earlier discussions with GM (FP) on this issue. DGM (FP) informed us that SEA section is not in position to issue the promotion orders due to various court cases pendng. He said that JAO to AO promotion is held up due to stay by Hon'ble Karnataka High court by the departmental JAO of 2010 opposing the combined eligibility list of outsider and departmental JAO. However, efforts are being taken by SEA section to vacate the stay. SEA section also proposed to upgrade some of JAO post to AO post so that maximum number of JAOs can get the promotion. File in this regard is with PERS section. Later in the day we discussed this matter with Jt GM (PERS) requesting early clearing the concerned file. If the proposal of SEA section is agreed to, more than 1000 JAOs may be promoted as AOs. AO to CAO Promotion is also held up due to various court cases pending in Haryana and MP. In this regard a common case is being filed by PERS section and efforts are being taken by PERS section to file MA in all the courts through ASG or senior advocate. We hope that soon a decision may come so that about 500 AOs may get the promotion.

Promotion of JTOs (T) to the grade of SDE (T) in B.S.N.L. against 67% seniority-cum-fitness quota:

BSNL CO has issued orders promoting 2855 JTOs (T) against 67% seniority cum fitness quota and another 284 JTOs subject to ascertaining their Vigilance status. This has ended the agony of the JTOs who were waiting for their promotion for more than a decade. It is really sad that many have retired during this period without getting their due promotion. When others were making merry over acceptance in principle by BSNL Board, the Executive Promotion Policy Amendment & Recruitment Rules to be implemented from 1.7.2018, AIBSNLOA was first among a few associations which demanded filling up of all existing vacancies in all grades before implementation of the EPP A&RR and sincerely worked for it. Supreme court orders on promotion with reservation and judgment of Ernakulam High Court came as timely boon. However, our gratitude goes out to the Personnel Section, right from DM, AGM, Jt.GM and GM who acted with swiftness to ensure issue of the orders and Director (HR) & CMD who were behind the decision.

Meeting with Director (PSU), DoT:

GS along with Shri S.P. Sharma GS BSNLWRU met Director (PSU) DoT and discussed the following issues:

1. Pay revision for BSNL employees with 15% fitment:

Director (PSU), DoT informed us that the proposal forwarded by BSNL Board was sent to DPE for their comments and advice because the proposal of BSNL Board was not in accordance with the guidelines issued by DPE as per the recommendations of 3rd PRC. DPE had returned the proposal to DoT with the comments that the proposal of BSNL is not as per the already issued DPE guidelines based on the recommendation of 3rd PRC and the approval of Cabinet. It had suggested that DoT should therefore take the approval of the Cabinet. Therefore, cabinet note is being prepared by DoT in consultation with the DoT Finance. The cabinet note will be submitted to Hon’ble MOC & IT for his approval. Once this is approved by the Hon’ ble MOC & IT the note will be circulated to all the concerned Ministries governing the departments DoE, DOP&W, DPE, Niti Aayog etc. Afterwards, the Cabinet memo along with the comments of different Ministries will be submitted to Cabinet for its approval. On our enquiry, Director (PSU) informed us that cabinet note is being prepared on the same line as proposed by BSNL. But this whole process will take about two to three months. We requested him to expedite the work as the delay is causing anxiety among BSNL employees. On this, he assured us that BSNL employees will definitely get the pay revision and he will try to complete the work at his end at the earliest.

2. Replacement of E1A and E2A scale by E2 & E3 pay scales to the JTO and SDE equivalent executives of BSNL:

In this regard Director(PSU) informed us that proposal was sent to DPE and DoE for their comments but comments received from both are not positive and both the departments have said that this issue can be decided by the concern administrative ministry. As pay scale for JTO and SDE cadre has already been decided by the DoT and conveyed to BSNL, no further action is required from DoT side. We requested Director (PSU), DoT that DoT, being an administrative ministry, should take an appropriate action in this regard to keep the morale of BSNL executives high, especially newly recruited JTOs. Director (PSU) assured us that he will look into it.

3. Revision of pension of BSNL retirees:

In this regard Director(PSU) informed us that this does not come under his preview but said that revision of pension is possible only after revision of pay of BSNL employees because fitment benefit for pension revision will depend upon the fitment benefit for pay revision of serving BSNL employees.

Meeting with General Manager (SR):

GS along with leaders Organisation of BSNL Unions and Associations met GM (SR) yesterday and enquired about the status of 3rd PRC in DoT and submission of cabinet note for implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL. We also informed GM (SR) that already a letter has been given by OBUA to Hon'ble Prime Minister of India wherein it has been mentioned that for implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL approval of cabinet is not required. Because earlier also, at the time of implementation of 2nd PRC recommendation in MTNL, Hon'ble MOC has given approval of implementation of 2nd PRC in MTNL inspite of MTNL making losses. GM (SR) appreciated our point and we requested GM (SR) for taking up the case with this point so that 3rd PRC can be implemented in BSNL at the earliest.

We also drew his attention to our letter to Hon'ble Prime Minister in respect of the formation of BSNL tower company and appointment of CMD for it by DoT, which is against the Articles of Association of the tower company. (According to Article 130 “CHAIRMAN: (a) So long as the Company remains a subsidiary of BSNL, Chairman BSNL will also act as its Chairman or the BSNL may nominate a Director as Chairman of the Director's meetings and determine the period for which he is to hold office.”).

We enquired about the status of our letters requesting GM (SR) for allotment of office accommodation to AIBSNLOA in BSNL Corporate Office, special C/L to the office bearers of AIBSNLOA and grant of immunity to our office bearer also. GM (SR) assured us that he will take necessary action on our requests.

We also requested GM (SR) to intervene in the matter of transfer of our Circle President of UP (W), Who has been transferred from UP(W) to NE-II circle, on the plea of longest stay while two other DGMs (F) working in UP (W) Circle are having longer stay than him. GM (SR) assured us that he will talk to the GM (FP) and ask her to take necessary action on our request.

GM (SR) also informed us that a new Grievance Redressal Cell has been opened for resolving the problems of the pensioners and a link has been created which can be accessed online either through the mobile or web. (Form available at   https://goo.gl/forms/PI5OasDWWYsulgus2 )

Meeting with General Manager (Pers):

GS along with Com. Sanjay Vishnoi met GM (Pers) on 30.5.2018 and discussed the following:

(I) Approval of cadre hierarchy by BSNL Board:

GM (Pers) told us that in the meeting of BSNL Board, held at Hyderabad, BSNL Board has given in-principle approval for amendment in present EPP and implementation of amendments from a prospective date i.e. 01.07.2018. As per new amendments all the executives who completed 12 years of service as SDE/AO or equivalent cadre will be designated as AGM/CAO etc. and those who completed 5 yeras of service as SDE/AO or equivalent cadre will be designated as Sr SDE/ Sr AO etc. All the JTO/ JAO and equivalent cadre executives who completed five year of service in the cadre will be designated as SDE/ AO etc. For further details he asked us to wait till the issue of circular on the subject matter.

(II) Filling up the vacant posts in different cadres:

We extended our thanks to GM (Pers) for issue the promotion orders from JTO to SDE under LDCE quota and requested him to take further necessary action for issue of promotion order for SCF quota also in different cadres because number of senior executives are waiting for their promotion for the last 20-25 years. GM (Pers) tlold that he also wanted to issue the promotion order from JTO to SDE under SCF quota but due to stay granted by Hon'ble High Court of Allahabad on promotion and delay in pronouncing the decision by Hon'ble High Court of Kerala, this may be delayed. In this regard efforts are being made for vacation of stay by convincing the petitioner to take back his application. GM(Pers) also said that hopefully decision of Hon'ble High Court of Kerala may be given in first week of June 2018. We requested GM(Pers) that before implementation of amended EPP all the vacant posts available in different cadres should be filled up. GM (Pers) assured us that before implementing the amended EPP all the available vacant posts in different cadres will be filled up as per present RRs. Later we learnt that necessary direction has been issued by the GM(Pers) to his staff for taking necessary action to fill up the vacant posts of SDE, DE and DGM. We will continue our efforts and hope that in next 1-2 months promotion orders in all cadres for the existing vacancies will be issued by the BSNL Management.

(iii) E-6 scale to adhoc DGM:

We once again raised this issue with GM (Pers) that we are still waiting for clarification on this issue. GM (Pers) immediately asked AGM (Pers-I) to put up the case for necessary clarification. He assured us that soon orders will be issued in this regard.

Organisation of BSNL Unions and Associations writes to Prime Minister requesting his intervention on removal of aberration in DPE guidelines on affordability for pay revision of BSNL employees:

'Affordability cannot be equated to profitability during any specific period. The performance of the CPSE vis-à-vis its stated objectives can only be a yardstick to decide on the pay revision. Employees cannot be asked to bear the cross for no fault of theirs. In this regard, it is pertinent to note that BSNL has good scores and rating in the annual Memoranda of Undertaking with DOT, which is a measure of financial and physical performance of BSNL in achieving the targets set by the administrative department, the DoT. It will also be appropriate to point out that BSNL has been achieving ‘Excellent’ rating every year in the Corporate Governance Grading Report compiled by DPE.'   Read More

DPE needlessly advises DOT to get cabinet approval to relax/amend affordability clause for BSNL:

In our letter to Secretary DPE and then our submission to the Minister of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises, we had drawn attention to the fact that the amendment to Presidential Order issued by DoT modifying the fitment benefit from 5% to 30% for MTNL Executives inspite of existence of affordability clause in Second PRC recommendations had only the approval of Hon’ble MOC&IT with the concurrence of Finance Wing of DoT. Therefore we feel that DPE advice to DoT to get cabinet approval for relaxation/amendment of guidelines is needless. AIBSNLOA will continue to take up the matter with DPE as well as MOSC.

Leaders of Organisation of BSNL Unions and Associations meet Shri Anant Geete, Hon'ble Minister of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises:

Taking forward their efforts further in the matter of early implementation of pay revision for BSNL employees, Leaders of Organisation of BSNL Unions and Associations, Com.Rakesh Sethi GS AIBSNLOA, Com.Rana Pratap GS BEA, Com.Zile Singh GS BSNLSU, Com Manoj Dewadi and Com.P.C. Rastogi AGS, AIBSNLOA met Shri Anant Geete, Hon'ble Minister of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises today and submitted a Memorandum requesting him to direct DoT regarding revision of pay scales of BSNL employees. They explained to him that BSNL's losses was due to its implementing social obligations of Government of India by providing financially unviable service in rural and remote areas, the Government not keeping its assurance at the time of formation of BSNL that it will be compensated for these services and BSNL being compelled to make pension contribution on the maximum of the pay scale instead of on the basis of actual pay, to cite a few reasons. They pointed out that MTNL employees were given pay revision with the maximum of 30% fitment during second pay revision, inspite of existence of affordability clause then too and MTNL making losses consecutively. BSNL had added 40 million subscribers in March 2018 alone, and it was necessary to keep the morale of the employees high in order to achieve early turn around of BSNL. They requested the Minister to ensure that DPE gives positive advice to DoT in response to its letter forwarding BSNL proposal for pay revision. Hon'ble Minister said that he will forward the Memorandum to DPE for examination and necessary action.   View the Memorandum

Since DoT has forwarded BSNL proposal for pay revision to DPE for its advice, we urged him to talk to MoHI&PE regarding this.

CHQ writes to Secretary DPE regarding Pay revision of BSNL Executives despite the affordability clause:

'From the amendment dated 10.5.2010 it may be seen that the fitment benefit of 30% had the approval of Hon’ble MOC&IT with the concurrence of Finance Wing of DoT. In both the occasions, MTNL making losses for several years consecutively and the Government Orders on 2nd PRC stipulating ‘affordability’ clause almost similar to the one recommended by the 3rd PRC were not a bar for MOC/DOT deciding to grant the maximum allowed fitment to MTNL executives....In view of the above, we request you to kindly advise DoT that Hon’ble MOSC is competent to approve pay revision of BSNL Executives w.e.f. 1.1.2017 as proposed by BSNL Board.'   Read More

Meeting with GM (Pers):

GS along with Com. P.C.Rastogi, AGS and Com. Sanjay Vishnoi met GM (Pers) on Friday (6.4.2018) and discussed the following:

(i) Granting upgradation to E6 pay scale for executives working as DGM on adhoc basis:

We told GM(Pers) that this issue is pending from 2016 but till date no action has been taken to issue necessary clarification by pers section. We told GM (Pers) that due to wrong interpretation of an earlier clarification issued by Personnel section on 25.07.20012, not only field units but also BSNL CO is not allowing financial upgradation from E5 to E6 to DGM(Adhoc). We explained that while the clarification issued by BSNL Corporate Office vide letter No.400-66/2011-Pers.I dated 25th July 2012 on applicability of Foot Note-1 under Schedules IA, IB, IC and ID of BSNL MS RR 2009 states that “Any other level executives viz. DGM and above are not eligible for consideration under the EPP as their time bound upgradation to NF grades is clearly enshrined in the BSNL MS RR-2009.” As there is no provision for DGM (Adhoc) in BSNL MS RR, it is to be taken that the term ‘DGM’ in the above clarification is to be taken as Regular DGM. The substantive grade of Adhoc DGM is to be treated as Regular STS and these executives should be given the benefit of upgradation upto E6 scale as provided in the BSNL EPP 2007. GM (Pers) immediately called AGM (Pers-Policy) and asked him about the status of the issue. AGM told him that issue was submitted to MC but till date no decision has taken by the MC. GM (Pers) has given instruction to AGM (Pers-Policy) to submit the issue once again so that clarification can be issued.

(ii) Re-opening of eAPAR window for 2016-17:

We once again requested GM (Pers) for re-opening of eAPAR window for those executives who could not complete their eAPAR for the year 2016-17 due to various reasons. GM (Pers) assured us that necessary action will be taken soon.

(iii) Delay in finalisation of EPP Amendment & RR (Cadre Hierarchy) and Promotion from JTO to SDE and SDE to SDE to DE:

We drew attention of GM (Pers) on this issue and enquired him about the present status of finalisation of EPP Amendment & Recruitment Rules. GM (Pers) said that necessary details, as requested have already been forwarded to DoT and BSNL is waiting for their reply so that further action may be taken. We requested GM (Pers) that as finalisation of EPP A&RR is edelayed necessary action for issue of promotion orders from JTO to SDE and SDE to DE may be taken as per our earlier discussion, since there is lot of frustration among all the executives because of delay in issue of promotion orders. We requested him that the alternate plan may be implemented immediately for holding DPCs. GM (Pers) assured that action will be taken for getting early approval from BSNL Management for the alternate plan. We also drew the attention of GM (Pers) that still some senior executives of list no 3, 4 and 5 are waiting for their promotion. Earlier these executives could not get the promotion due to some reasons but now promotion orders can be issued for these executives because presently there is no dispute in these seniority lists. GM (Pers) spoke to Jt GM (Pers) and asked him to prepare list of executives who are still working as SDE and are in list no. 3, 4 and 5. He assured us necessary will be taken on this soon.
In addition, we also discussed some local issues of BSNL CO like Delay in releasing of look-on orders from SDE to DE, posting of staff in vacant posts and issue of look-on order for DE to DGM posts as number of DGM posts are lying vacant in BSNL CO. GM (Pers) assured us tht he will look in to this and issue necessary orders.
