All ACRs and VC should reach BSNL-CO this week itself. Since VC for most of the Circles are expiring by the end of first week of February, DPC has to complete by that time. Otherwise fresh VC from all Circles required and it may take minimum two months.
Last few months, CHQ was repeatedly reminding our CSs to send the ACRs and VC to complete the preparatory work by the time court case will be over but few Circles only responded. Now, court case is over but ACR and VC is not ready!
20.01.2015: GS writes to Sri Anupam Shrivastava, new CMD, BSNL extending unqualified, committed and total support of this Association in steering the Company out of the deep crisis that it is engulfed in right now.
· Human resources are our biggest strength. The morale of the employees in BSNL is down and confidence building measures to motivate the employees are the need of the hour. Resolution of the following issues and career growth must be on highest priority:
a) Finalization of Standard pay scales for the basic cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO w.e.f 01.01.2007. Even after 8 years, the pay scales are not finalised.
b) Finalization of Superannuation benefit to the BSNL recruited employees.
· Strict enforcement of discipline, accountability, close monitoring of performance, especially of SSA heads which are nerve centres of growth, monitoring of quality of services and execution of projects at all the levels.
Finalization of tenders and procurement of materials in a time bound manner, facilitating the Circles/SSAs to complete the project in time and provide quality service shall be on the top of the agenda.
Last, but not least, is taming corruption ruthlessly which is fast raising its ugly head.
· Corporate office of the company should be policy think tank and a huge reserve of policy formulations and monitoring of execution of policies.
· Top management of the Company has to safeguard the legitimate interests of the Company.

Meeting with GM(Estt) on E2, E3 pay scales replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A:
GS and both AGSs met GM(Estt) on 12.01.2015 to discuss E2, E3 pay scales and holding committee meeting. GM(Estt) told that in the last committee meeting, demand for E2 to E7 pay scales which is not part of the terms and conditions of the committee was raised by some members and the cabinet decision on MTNL has come where cabinet decided to reduce the pay scales of MTNL to that of BSNL, the question of whether E2, E3 can be implemented in BSNL is referred to DoT. Association strongly protested against this action to refer the matter back to DoT since last three years from Feb, 2012 onwards this issue is simply shuttling in the name of DoT, DPE etc. In the Committee meeting on 17.11.2014, Chairman directed GM(Estt) to refer the matter to DIR(HR)/CMD to decided on the terms of reference of the Committee but now the matter has sent to DoT against the decision taken in the committee meeting. This is nothing but delay tactics.
We clearly told GM(Estt) that cabinet decision on MTNL is a latest development in 2014 and we are discussing about the pay revision and revised pay scales replacing intermediary scales of E1A and E2A from 01.01.2007. Whatever be the rationalization of pay scales has to happen, it will be from the next pay revision from 2017 and not from 01.01.2007. In the name of development in MTNL, there is no justification in delaying the finalization of pay scales of BSNL w.e.f 01.01.2007. If comaprisson with MTNL is required, then BSNL has to consider for parity in pay from 01.10.2000 till rationalization is done.
GM(Estt) mentioned that E1 and E2 scale is already approved by BSNL Board and it is implemented in BSNL. On that GS replied that its implementation is provisional pending final decision on the pay scales for which the Committee is constituted and DoT has to approve the same. GM(Estt) further told that some section of Executives has apprehension that on implementation of E2, E3 pay scale alone, anomaly will occur as JTOs of 2001/2002 batch will reach E3 scale in 9 to 11 years where as 2005/2007/2008 batches will reaches in 4 to 6 years. It is always a fact that in any pay revision youngsters will be benefitted than the seniors but the seniors never come on the way of the future of youngsters, which is the history of trade union movement. In 1986 pay revision also, seniors pay even got reduced but they whole heartedly welcomed the upgradation of the pay scales of the JTO cadre and struggled for that. No Assn or Executive of BSNL is against extending E2, E3 pay scales to the JTO/JAOs of 2007, 2008 and later recruitments. Assn clearly told GM(Estt) that our demand is E2 to E7 scale but due Managements apprehension about the huge financial implication on pension contribution, atleast to give relief to the JTOs of 2007 and 2008 batch and JTO/JAOs recruited after 2007, the terms of reference of the joint committee was decided as to examine the implementation of E2, E3 scale replacing intermediary Pay scales of E1A and E2A for JTO and SDE cadres keeping the other scales pending for the time being till pension contribution issue is settled.
The latest developments shows that the Management is in no mood to implement atleast E2, E3 pay scales for the time being. CMD and other senior officers again and again assured us to resolve the issues through discussions in the Joint Committee but in fact the issue is referred to DoT again without any valid reason. This shows that management want to demote the cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO to E1 and E2 scales.
We have no other option left other than to restart the agitation programmes which we are held in abeyance on assurances from CMD, BSNL.
