  • 30.12.2011:Special Lateral Direct Recruitment -2011 of BSNL Management Services: BSNL has notified Special Lateral Direct Recruitment -2011 of BSNL Management Services for recruitment of Sr.DGMs and GMs/PGMs/CGMs (Telecom Operations) in E6 and E9 IDA scales on immediate absorption basis as a special measure. The earlier Direct Recruitment of DGMs has lent precedence to this RR. But the proposal of retention of seniority of the new recruits vs already absorbed officers (against which AIBSNLOA alone had raised strong and valid objections in its letter to DoT and DoPT) does not find a place in this RR. Officers already absorbed will be enbloc senior to those who are to be recruited as per this RR. Without provision for retaining the seniority and without any hope of pension for the service in BSNL, this RR may not be as attractive as the repatriated ITS officers would have wanted it to be. Anyway recruitment of Sr.DGMs and GMs in such a large number, that too as a special measure, is quite uncalled-for. We would raise the issue appropriately. View notification...
