20.07.2016: View Media Report:

Niti Aayog may consider strategic sale in BSNL, MTNL.

SNEA unequivocally and strongly condemn the diabolical and sinister move of the GOVERNMENT in general and the NITI AAYOG in particular in considering strategic sale of National Telecom Institution of the Country – BSNL. SNEA wows that each and every member of SNEA will fight to the last drop of his blood to ensure that the government does not venture and dare to even remotely go ahead with such retrograde decision.

SNEA warns the government and the Niti Aayog to desist from taking such a preposterous decision failing which this association will fully expose the government, policy makers, the Niti Aayog of massive political corruption, bureaucratic red tape, complete lack of autonomy for the BSNL Management and protecting vested private operators that has lead to the declining revenue of BSNL and its becoming weak. The government, policy makers squarely responsible for the present state of affairs of BSNL.

SNEA calls upon its members throughout the country to start gearing up for a prolonged and sustained struggle to completely expose and defeat the ulterior design of the government to sell even 1% of the stake of government in BSNL, let alone strategic sale of BSNL that is being contemplated by the government.

SNEA has to remain fully prepared for what could be a bloodshed struggle to fully safe guard against BSNL – a strategic prestigious National Telecom Institution of telecom from attacks from the government, vested interest and bureaucracy. This National Telecom Institution of telecom has met in the most extraordinary and unparalleled manner social obligation of the various telecom policies of government from time to time and has met the aspirations of the common man in providing telecom services of universal qualities at affordable price.

Let the government carefully evaluate and analyze to how private operators have destabilized telecom sector and abdicated and blatantly violated their responsibility mandated to them by the policy in providing services in remote and far flung areas of the country. The Government must heavily come down on private operators for their naked policies violation that has resulted in weakening of BSNL.

Requested to strongly project to the BSNL Management for extension of E1A and E2A Scales notionally w.e.f 01.10.2000 to the electrical wing as recommended by Vinay Sahi committee, finalization of results of JTO(E), LICE.

  14.07.2016: GS along with Chairman, AGS Com P.P.Rao and JS Com Aravind Pal Dahiya met Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL on 14.07.2016 and discussed following issues.

1. Requested his intervention in clearance of the proposal of E2, E3 and E4 to E7 pay scales to Executives as recommended by BSNL and sent to DOT. Association informed the discussions we had at various levels of Officers in DOT during the intervening period. CMD assured his personal intervention.

2. Requested for the finalization of Jt Committee recommendation on CPSU cadre Hierarchy as assured by the BSNL Management. The dead line is fixed as 31.08.2016, concrete and brainstorming discussions to take place on the proposal. Unless the management and the Associations work in synchronization, the issue cannot be resolved. Requested intervention at higher level for the early implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy as all the Executives Promotions are struck up in one court or the other.

3.Association discussed on the issues to be highlighted before 3rd PRC by the BSNL Management and the letter submitted on PRC by SNEA. CMD informed that he had gone through the SNEA suggestions and try to incorporate them. Association requested for projecting BSNL as equivalent to NAVRATNA PSU, as it is operating on PAN India basis with more than Rs 31,000 Crores revenue. Since BSNL is in service sector, the profitability should not be the criteria for finalizing the pay scales. As BSNL is providing services in the nook and corner of the country and non remunerative areas. BSNL is the only operator adhering to the social obligations and meeting the expectations of the Govt. Requested for projecting to the 3rdPRC with special mention about the services BSNL rendering in entire Rural areas and hence the Pay Scales to be finalized without linking with the profitability of the company.

GS and AGS along with the GS SNATTA, Dy GS SNATTA and other Office bearers met GM (Estt) and requested to consider the relaxation for all the TTAs of 2007 recruitment to be made eligible for JTO LICE held on 22.05.2016 to resolve the issue once for all. Present relaxation created more anomaly. In some Circles, TTA exam held in 2008 but they joined for training before 01.07.2008, but relaxation not given. GM(Estt) explained that relaxation is given for those Circles where atleast one batch started training before 01.07.2008 irrespective of date of TTA examination. If any Circle is left out, it will be covered, she assured. We pointed out that clarification is not specifying this fact but taken as a cut off date of 31.12.2007 for TTA exam, irrespective of training. GM further clarified that it is applicable only for the Circles where trg started before 01.07.2008 and it is not applicable for a Circle where trg started after 01.07.2008 but TTA exam held before 31.12.2007. Assn told mgt that rect section and Circles not interpreted the clarification as explained now and it may further vitiate the situation. So viable solution may be to allow everybody. The relaxations thus given, needs to be ratified later by the competent authority, ie BSNL Board to protect the executives from legal hurdle at the later date. GM(Estt) assured to examine the matter in view of the suggestions given by us.

GS and AGS also discussed with GM (Estt) on the 3rd PRC proposals to be submitted by the BSNL and requested to give all possible inputs that project BSNL equivalent to NAVRATNA PSU.
