Director (HR) letter on shortage of Personnel in the Executive grades in various circles - management thereof:

'BSNL has to manage its operations with a level of shortage in the manpower at the executive level while its business processes take a churn. Many processes are being outsourced leaving only monitoring work with the managers. It is a challenge to utilize the overall staff strength, which is still on the higher side, in a profitable manner. There is no use harping on the shortage at regular intervals. Circle Heads may exercise their managerial capacity in allocating the available executives in the best possible manner under the various schemes mentioned above.'   Read More

GS speech on E2 E3 issue in Meerut Meeting:

We have been receiving number of emails asking us to settle E2 E3 issue before 3rd PRC recommendations are submitted. We would like to reiterate that AIBSNLOA was the first association, to demand replacement of E1A AND E2A by E2 AND E3 scale, immediately after the recommendations of 2nd PRC was implemented. But the two Executive Associations then enjoying facilities only pursued equivalent pay scales of E1A and E2A. AIBSNLOA pursued the matter continuously and DPE too while forwarding AIBSNLOA letter, wrote to DoT on 20.10.2009 for taking necessary action at their end. AIBSNLOA also time and again pointed out that the Department of Public Enterprises, in its O M dated 02.04.2009, has clearly instructed against introduction of any intermediary scales and further asserted that “If there has been any aberrations, they need to be corrected.” and hence approving E2 and E3 scales to JTOs & equivalent cadres and SDEs & equivalent cadres is the only way out, since DPE cannot be expected to approve intermediary E1A and E2A scales.” The two associations were content with BSNL's proposal to only get equivalent to E1 A and E2 A scales. After DoT too rejected this proposal, these so called major associations fell to the delaying tactics by BSNL and agreed to formation of committee, which was not at all required. No other PSU went to DPE seeking equivalent of intermediary pay scales. DPE approval is not required for fitment in the standard pay scales given by DPE. BSNL and the two associations have made this issue so complex that a simple replacement of intermediary scales with standard scales now appears to be a very big issue and all are now more anxious whether it will be possible to achieve or not.  AIBSNLOA assures all the affected executives that this is a very simple issue and can be achieved easily but only honest and rational efforts are required. These two associations have allowed placement of JTOs and SDEs in lower scales, E1 and E2, lower than the scales they were having prior to 1.1.2007. Have faith in AIBSNLOA and we assure you that we will try our best to resolve the issue at the earliest.

FBEA leaders meet Director (HR):

FBEA leaders, GS AIBSNLOA, GS BEA of BSNL and CHQ President & GS of AITEEA met Director (HR) today and discussed the following issues. Sr.GM (Pers), GM (SR), GM (Estt) and GM (FP) were present:

1.Addressing pay loss issue of JTOs/JAOs appointed after 1.1.2007:

We explained that JTOs/JAOs appointed after 1.1.2007 got their pay fixed at Rs.19020 and those who were appointed before 1.1.2007 got their pay fixed at Rs.22820, while the recruitment notice in both cases mentioned the pre-revised scale of Rs.9850-250-14600. We therefore requested that their starting pay be re-fixed at Rs.22820. Director (HR) has asked GM (FP) to discuss the matter with the Federation leaders and report to her back.

2.Superannuation benefits to BSNL recruited employees:

We thanked Director (HR) for getting approval for the proposal, though BSNL contribution was less than expected and wanted it to be revised. We mentioned that last year, during our discussion with GM (Estt) we were told that 5 to 6% contribution was under consideration. We also requested that the benefits should be extended atleast from 1.1.2007. Director (HR) said that the scheme has to be implemented first and certainly there is possibility of revision of BSNL contribution in the future.

3.Replacement of E1 to E6 scales with E2 to E7 scales:

We requested that CMD should make all efforts to convince DoT to approve BSNL proposal. GM (Estt) said that the file is with Member (Finance), DoT and all efforts are being made to get the proposal approved.

4. Resolving of all HR issues including CPSU Cadre Hierarchy before Membership Verification:

Director (HR) assured that efforts are on to resolve all the issues at the earliest.

5.Absence of level playing field for Membership Verification:

We explained in detail that the Management is favouring two Executive Associations by addressing them on major HR issues and not taking into confidence all the 10 participant associations. Director (HR) assured that discussions will be held with all the 10 associations and asked Sr.GM (Pers) to provide copies of BSNL proposal on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy to all the participant associations and said that level playing field will be ensured till the process of verification is completed.

CWC MEETING AT JAIPUR - A MILESTONE IN THE HISTORY OF AIBSNLOA:

Rajasthan is famous for its precious stones like Ruby, Emarald, Garnets, Agate, Amethyst, Topaz, Lapis lazuli, Carnelian etc. AIBSNLOA Rajasthan Circle has added a GEM in the Pagdi of AIBSNLOA, when it hosted the Central Working Committee Meeting of AIBSNLOA at Jaipur on 26th and 27th September 2016, marking another milestone in the history of AIBSNLOA. Comrades of Rajasthan Circle led by Circle President Com Mahesh Pareek & Circle Secretary Com.R.L.Agarwal, assisted by Com.S.P.Jain, OS (North) & Com.G.H.Ganshyam, DM BSNL CO and guided by Com.O.P.Jat, had made extraordinary arrangements for the meeting, accommodation as well as dining. Deliberations in the meeting, presided over by Com.K.Rajasekaran, CHQ President, reflected the enthusiasm and confidence the members have reposed on AIBSNLOA. Speaker after speaker exposed the failure of three Executive Associations which were part of the Joint Committee constituted by the Management to recommend on major HR issues. The two associations which enjoyed facilities and patronage of Management all these years were in for criticism for their inability to settle these issues viz. E2 E3 scales, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy & Superannuation benefits for BSNL recruited employees and for their role in making the simple issues more complex by taking different stand at different points of time. The meeting reiterated and approved the stand taken by AIBSNLOA on these issues and urged the CHQ to pursue these issues relentlessly. The meeting also discussed the Membership Verification of Executive Associations in all details. The meeting raised doubts about the intention of the Management and the timing of verification. Management's continued leaning towards the three associations, witnessed in its exclusive discussion with them on the three HR issues when the verification process is on, was disapproved by the meeting and the meeting has authorised the General Secretary to take appropriate steps to accomplish level playing field, in letter and spirit, as assured by the Management and to ensure fair and free election. The CWC meeting also has decided the strategy, in minute details, for campaigning and polling related responsibilities of Circles and Districts. The functioning of the CHQ, particularly the General Secretay Com.Rakesh Sethi was applauded by all the speakers.

A colourful Open Session was held at 1130 Hrs on 26th September 2016.

He cited media reports comparing BSNL tariff with that of others clearly establishing that BSNL offered the cheapest. He announced that BSNL has put up an operating profit of 3855 crores last year of which 1900 crores was from interest paid by IT department towards the amount due to be refunded to BSNL. The loss has also come down from 8000 crores to 3000 crores. He appreciated the three Directors of BSNL Board for their hard work in improving the services and the revenue in their respective areas. He said the employees too have played an effective role by way of programmes like "SWAS". But he opined that there was still a lot of scope for improvement, since all store materials are readily available. He expressed his concern about the probabilities of the impending pay revision and requested that all should work together at this crucial juncture. He declared that the strategy of BSNL now is "Competition and Collaboration", meaning that we will compete effectively with our resources and will collobarate with others where we do not have the resources.

THREE ASSOCIATIONS REJECT AIBSNLOA’S PROPOSAL FOR JOINT ACTION BY ALL EXECUTIVE ASSOCIATIONS TO ACHIEVE IMPLEMENTATION OF BSNL PROPOSAL TO DOT TO RESOLVE THE PAY SCALE REVISION ISSUE OF JTO/EQUIVALENT AND SDE/EQUIVALENT CADRES:

Following our observation in this website on 15.08.2016 that “At least now, all should unite with a common approach to defeat the high-handedness of DoT”, we took the lead and approached one Executive Association for a Joint action by all the Associations. But another association which was also a member of the Joint Committees on this issue is said to have rejected our proposal for united action. Now the three Associations which were members of the earlier Joint Committees have together announced ‘Trade Union progamme’ demanding implementation of Khan Committee recommendations of replacing E1A and E2A scales with E2 and E3 scales. Maybe they want to project themselves as the ‘sole saviours’ of the BSNL recruited JTOs/JAOs, having failed to settle the issue during the past seven years even though they were the members of the Official Committees set up by BSNL for the purpose. It appears that no one has learnt any lesson from the past. On our part, we believe that it is entirely the responsibility of CMD BSNL to get his proposal approved by the DoT without any dilution of it by seeking re-examination of the issue. We will devise our strategy accordingly.

22.08.2016:

CHQ writes to MOC on DoT’s irrational action in rejecting BSNL proposal to remove aberrations in non-standard pay scales as directed by DPE:

'Moreover, DoT's concern about 'huge financial burden on Government Exchequer is far from any truth as there will be no additional financial implication either for BSNL or for the Government in upgrading the E3 to E6 scales as all would have crossed the minimum of the next higher scales and there will be no impact on pension too. The financial implication in replacing the E1A and E2A pay scales with E2 and E3 pay scales for JTOs & their equivalent cadres and SDEs & their equivalent cadres respectively is minimal and major portion of the additional cost estimated by BSNL will be Pension Contribution to be paid to the Government only. But this small gesture will benefit BSNL by providing an atmosphere to retain the services of young new entrants and ensure that they are not forced to migrate to other organisations in search of higher emoluments. In fact, because of the delay by BSNL in taking a decision on the issue, during the past seven years, many JTOs have already left BSNL opting for even other PSUs having one level higher pay scales.'   Read More

It is a fact that which all the Telcom companies of the world are profit-making units, the BSNL was turning into a heavy loss making undertaking.

DoT rejects BSNL proposal for replacing E1A, E2 A scales with E2 and E3 scales and upgradation of E3, E4, E5 and E6 scales w.e.f. 1.1.2007:

DoT has written to BSNL rejecting the proposal sent by BSNL on the plea that considering the present financial position of the Company and the huge financial burden on Government Exchequer in the shape of revised pensionary benefits and recurring burden of pension. DoT has once again shown its apathy towards genuine issues of BSNL employees. This comes at a time when every one from the Minister feels elated about improving financial status of BSNL. DoT's concern about 'huge financial burden on Government Exchequer is far from any truth as there will be no additional financial implication either for BSNL or for the Government in upgrading the E3 to E6 scales as all would have crossed the minimum of the next higher scales and there will be no impact on pension too. One Executive Association had reported in its website that in a meeting with CMD on 10.8.2016, the association requested his personal intervention to get it expedited in DoT before DoT/Fin is taking negative stand on the whole proposal and that the "CMD assured to speak to Addl Sec and do the needful". If what the association has reported is correct, then it means that the CMD who was aware of the rejection of its proposal by DoT on 9.8.2016 itself, as seen from the CMD office Seal in the DOT letter, had knowingly given a wrong assurance to the association. Else the report of the association is defective. DoT has added insult to injury by suggesting referring the issue to 3rd PRC, which is nothing but mockery, as DoT and BSNL has not honoured the recommendations of 2nd PRC itself on many counts. We do not understand the 'concern' of DoT about the huge financial burden on Government Exchequer, since it did not have such concern when it proposed and got approved Government Pension as per Rule 37 A of CCS (Pension) Rules for MTNL employees in higher pay scales right from 1.10.2000 involving very huge and recurrent expenditure for the Government. Refusing to accept AIBSNLOA's stand from the year 2009 for replacing all the scales E1 to E6 with E2 to E7 scales, raking up the issue very late and compromising with the Management by the Associations which enjoyed the facilities since 2004, has cost the Executives heavily. Atleast now, all should unite with a common approach to defeat the high-handedness of DoT. And BSNL Management is just enjoying the situation by pitting the Associations against each other at this crucial time in the name of membership verification.   View DoT letter

Meeting with Director (HR):

GS along with AGS HQ and CS Corporate Office Circle had a meeting with Director (HR) today. Sr. GM (Pers) and GM (SR) were present. GS congratulated Director (HR) for the successful implementation of SWAS programme reaching out to the cutomers which started yesterday throughout the country. He thanked Director (HR) for conceding one of our long pending demands of extending the benefit of 78.2% for HRA purpose also. Then, we brought to the notice of Director (HR) about violations in Rules and Procedures and BSNL Transfer Policy itself by circle/SSA administrations which pushes the affected Executives to seek legal remedy. We also pointed out that the genuine grievances of Executives under trasnfer many times go unconsidered, although Personnel Section is trying to help specific cases brought to their notice. We drew the attention of Director (HR) towards a letter written to her about the unhelpful and arbitrary acts of CGM Chennai Telephones, completely violating all norms and procedures and the provisions of BSNL Transfer Policy and her refusal even to listen to requests for corrective action. We emphasized that it is not a question of an individual Executive having his tenure as Faculty member of RTTC Maraimalainagar cut-short halfway, but a question of following of established norms and principles by the Circle Administration. We expressed our anguish that the CGM Chennai Telephones refused to discuss the issue at all, threatening that she will go out if our office bearers further raised the issue. Director (HR) understood the depth of the problem and has asked Sr.GM (Pers) to call for a report from CGM Chennai Telephones. Director (HR) also accepted that some times the genuine grievances of Executives go unconsidered. Later we discussed the issue of promotion to SDE/AO, STS, DGM grade on adhoc as well as regular basis. Sr. GM (Pers) said that promotion orders could not be issued because of pendency of various court cases. After discussions, Director (HR) agreed to consider the promotion of left out SDEs in Seniority List 5 for promotion to STS grade and directed Sr.GM (Pers) to seriously consider and find a way out of the situation caused by court cases. However, she added that the Management is worried about large number of Executives declining the promotion. We explained to her that Executives getting their promotion at the fag end of their service are practically not able to move out. We insisted that time bound functional promotion alone can be a solution for this. We also put up specific solutions in this regard and the Director (HR) was appreciative of our proposals and has agreed to consider them with all seriousness.

Admissibility of HRA at IDA Basic Pay with 78.2%:

BSNL CO has issued orders allowing HRA at IDA basic pay with 78.2% fitment benefit in respect of Executives and Non-Executives, but only w.e.f. 1.10.2016. Immediately after the BSNL letter dated 13.6.2013 stating that, "all allowances like Medical reimbursement with voucher for outdoor treatment, Professional Up-gradation Allowance and House Rent Allowance etc shall continue to be paid at IDA basic pay with 68.8% fitment till further orders", we protested that it was contradicting DoT's Presidential orders dated 10.6.2013 as well as DPE guidelines and requested review of the decision and allowing all allowances at IDA basic pay with 78.2% fitment with retrospective effect. But the unions and associations which signed the agreement with BSNL in June 2012 did not raise an eye brow against breach of the agreement itself, which had provided for review of payment of these allowances on 1.4.2013. Now some of them may claim this as an achievement, when all of us have lost our rightful claim for nearly nine years. Anyway we should thank the Management that it had the heart to allow the benefit atleast now, though from a prospective date, with no one hard-pressing for it, except for keeping an item alive in National Council.   View orders
