Hon Supreme Court judgment dated 12.08.2014 on list No 6 & 7 seniority: 

The SLPs filed by BSNL and other individuals challenging the Hon Bombay and Ernakulam High Court orders quashing the seniority list 6 & 7 dismissed. Hon Courts directed BSNL to recast the seniority list based on “date of joining”. The seniority of about 5600 LDCE passed candidates of 2004, 2008 and 2013, promoted as per SDE RR 1996 and 2002 has to be fixed based on “date of joining”, putting a big question mark on the relevance of LDCE.

By this DPC, clearing a record no of 2771 vacancies for 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 in a single list, DE regular promotion becomes current.

Around 1000 SDEs are promoted as DEs and those vacancies can be utilized for JTO to SDE promotion.

SNEA(I) is extremely grateful to Sri A. N. Rai, CMD/DIR(HR), BSNL for filling all the DE vacancies on regular basis.

Our CSs, SSA Secs, CHQ Office bearers and activists at different levels took all the pains and worked with all sincerity to arrange ACRs and VCs in time.

Our team of both AGSs at CHQ, especially Com Vivek Wankhede were fully involved in this DPC work, round the clock, for the last few months in collecting ACRs and VCs from different Circles.

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.
