Editorial, July, 2014

Membership verification shall bring unity among the Executives:

BSNL Management proposes to hold the membership verification among Executives Associations which SNEA(I) has been demanding for years together. Unlike other CPSUs in various sectors, where single Association represents the entire Executives, in BSNL, several Associations exist due to legacy. One of the major objectives of membership verification is to end this multiplicity and bring about unity among the Executives. Multiple Associations will only strengthen the hands of the Management and delay or deny the genuine cadre interests. We are witnessing this during the last few years.

To face the membership verification, SNEA(I), has come out with a Manifesto which spells out the vision and future agenda of the Association. SNEA(I) is fully committed to the growth of the company and the career progression of the Executives. Our agenda and focus for the next three years is as follows.

1.  Make the organization fully profitable in another three years. Intervene in Government policy making with appropriate suggestions to protect the public sector against intrusion, disinvestment and encroachment. Ensure job security to the young comrades recruited by BSNL and DoT.

2. Emphasis to be laid on modern Management with greater role and involvement of the middle management.

3. A responsible, professional and corruption-free top management which has stakes in the welfare of the Company and only the Company. Deputation of ITS from DoT into BSNL should end. Legal and organizational actions will be pursued vigorously.

4. No subsidiaries by breaking BSNL into pieces.

5. Start preparations for 3rd PRC due in 2017, fully focusing on the growth of the company.

6. Implementation of 30% superannuation benefits in respect of Direct Rect BSNL employees and Executives in particular as per DPE guidelines.

7.   Implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3, ----, E7 w.e.f 01.01.2007 for the Executives in BSNL. The disparity in pay between the Executives recruited prior to and after 01.01.2007 to be resolved.

8. To fill up all the vacancies in all cadres as on date by promotion from JTO/JAO to SDE/AO, SDE/AO to DE/CAO, DE/CAO to DGM in different wings through DPCs and LDCEs till Time Bound Functional promotion is implemented.

9.Introduction of LDCE in AO promotion also. Conduction of LDCE on a year to year basis till Time Bound Functional promotion is implemented.

10. Introduction of Time Bound Functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy in BSNL with strong focus on performance. It should not be linked with existing seniority or availability of post. Evolve a fast track mechanism in CPSU cadre hierarchy itself for faster promotions to fill up the Top management positions in future from among the internal candidates.

11.Resolution of EPF anomalies, centralized EPF payment at least Region wise, exploring the possibility of switching over to Full Pension option.

12. Association stands fully committed to safeguard legitimate interests of SC/ST Comrades in accordance to the provisions of the constitution and orders of DOP&T issued from time to time with regard to their seniority, promotional quota, postings etc. 

13.  All consequential benefits of 78.2% IDA merger from 01.01.2007 like HRA, PUC, arrears etc. For the pensioners, actual benefits from 01.01.2007.

14. Amendment to BSNLMS RR to end adhocism by increasing the Regular promotion quota from 50% to 75% in Finance / Civil / Electrical/ Arch wings at par with Telecom wing to have uniformity in promotions.

15. Pension revision in 2017 without linking it with pay revision.

16. Maintain uniformity in first time bound up-gradation i.e. four years in respect of all Executives w.e.from 01.10.2000.

17.Amendment to BSNLMS RR for bringing uniformity in promotion in Civil / Electrical/ Arch wings at par with Telecom and Finance wings.

18.Total parity in pay scales between the two wings- Civil/Elect/Arches and Finance by extending Group B pay scales notionally w.e.f 01.10.2000 to JTO(C/E/Arch) and SDE (C/E/Arch) on lines similar to JAO pay scales.

19. Notional date of promotions to the LDCE candidates as per court order.

20.Regularization of officiating JTOs and JTO rect, both Dept & Outsider quota.

21.TTA to JTO (Dept) outsider, pay loss to be addressed.

22. Perks like Transport allowance to be hiked and All India LTC, Medical payment without voucher etc to be reintroduced.

This verification process should ultimately lead to unity among all the Executives. No more multiplicity to play in the hands of the Management. Let all Executives in BSNL work for that, for the future of the Executives.

CHQ NEWS:Up dates on Kerala and Standard Payscales issues:

24.07.2014: Meeting with CMD, BSNL: GS and President met Sri A. N. Rai, CMD, BSNL and held discussions on the ongoing agitation in Kerala Circle for the last 29 days. CMD informed us that appropriate instructions are already issued to Sri MSS Rao, CGMT/Kerala to resolve the issues immediately. CMD was very unhappy due to the fact that even after strict instructions, vindictive actions are continued by the CGMT. CMD further told us that since instructions are already issued by BSNLCO, Assn may reconsider the programme of hunger strike at BSNLCO from tomorrow and facilitate the dialogue. GS and President explained the compelling reasons to start agitation programmes at CHQ level as situation in Kerala is worsening day by day due to vindictive actions. CMD assured that no further vindictive actions will be taken by the CGMT like charge sheet, memo, dies-non, second medical opinion etc and CGMT is directed to invite Assn for discussion and resolution of all issues. Assn assured that SNEA(I) will respond very positively in case CGMT is ready to resolve the issues.

On JTO to SDE promotion case, Assn requested CMD that BSNL to engage a senior lawyer from Delhi to defend the case at Ernakulam as Kerala Circle repeatedly failed to defend the case properly. CMD assured that he will give proper directions to Pers section and GM(Estt) holding the charge of GM(Pers) in this regard.

Before meeting CMD, GS, President, both AGSs and CS/CO met GM(SR). GM(SR) informed that CMD decided to issue appropriate instructions today itself to CGMT/Kerala to discuss all the issues with the Association and resolve them. This is in addition to the instructions already conveyed to CGMT telephonically by CMD. CGMT is asked to give a report in three days time. Since CMD already intervened in the matter, CMD desires that the letter for holding two days hunger strike at BSNLCO to be reconsidered. GS and President explained the compelling reasons to start agitation programmes at CHQ level as situation in Kerala is worsening day by day due to vindictive actions. GM(SR) suggested to postpone the programmes for few days to facilitate the dialogue and resolution of the issues.  

CGMT invited SNEA(I)/KRL for discussions today A/N itself but for the convenience of the Assn, meeting postponed to tomorrow A/N.

In order to have a conducive atmosphere for discussion and resolution of the issues, the hunger strike at BSNL CO on 24th and 25th postponed to 31st July and 01st August, 2014.

All Circles to hold one day hunger strike at Circle HQs on 31st July, 2014 in solidarity and support of our Kerala Comrades.

Update on Standard Payscales:

24.07.2014: Standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc: DoT intimated the decision of DPE on the BSNL proposal of intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A to CMD, BSNL. DPE earlier rejected the proposal of E1A and E2A. Now Assn will pursue the implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 --- E7 for the Executives in BSNL. Last few months Assn vigorously pursued the matter in DoT and DPE and met all the concerned officers in DoT and DPE including Secretary/DPE, Jt Sec/DPE, Jt Sec/DoT etc and ensured that DPE is not approving the proposal of E1A and E2A send by BSNL through DoT.

This is one of the major step for implementation of standard pay scales in BSNL which SNEA(I) pursuing with top most priority with the support of all the Executives.

16.07.2014: CHQ NEWS: JTO to SDE promotion case at Hon CAT, Ernakulam.

The OA was listed for “Final disposal” on 16.07.14. However it is learned that BSNL lawyer sought adjournment as senior lawyer engaged by BSNL was out of station. Assn will be taking up the issue with the top BSNL Management, the lack of interest shown by Kerala CGMT in ensuring the appearance of Senior lawyer in the court when the case was listed one month back itself. When BSNLCO is eagerly waiting for the outcome of the case after completing all the preparatory works for promotions, the stand of CGMT Kerala even defying the repeated instructions of BSNLCO and DIR(HR) is astonishing.

10.07.2014: Com SR Chandrasekhar SDE, ITPC-DC HYD appreciated by Shri Ramchand, Sr G.M (IT), Corporate office for developing an IT tool and it saved Rs. 2.5 Cr to BSNL.

Dear SR Chandrasekhar

Today the steering committee of ERP, chaired by DIR(CFA) and consisting of ED(F), ED(IT), CGM IT and myself decided to use the in-house developed tool SRCS for managing servers, databases, applications, backups, storage utilization etc in a data centre.
Your efforts in developing this and using this in the CDR system is commendable. Your effort to put that to use in the ERP system is once again laudable.

the committee also decided not to procure hpov for ERP.

You have straightaway saved Rs. 2.75 cr for BSNL

CONGRATS and BEST WISHES to YOU and to all those who helped you achieve this. Pl ease continue the spirit.

I am specially happy that one of our DOTSOFT team members did this.
