GS Com K. Sebastin and Chairman/SNEA Com G. L. Jogi met CMD, BSNL and held discussions on the following subject:
A. Further actions on the recommendations of the Joint Committee: GS thanked CMD for the reconstitution of the Committee and monitoring the progress also. GS requested expeditious actions on the recommendations of the Jt Committee.
On our apprehension about the dissent note by the committee members from official side, CMD assured that management is committed to resolve the issues and the dissent note will not come on the way. CMD informed that the report has been already marked to DIR(HR) for further actions.
The Joint Committee recommended:
i) Replacement of intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A with standard pay scales of E2 and E3 w.e.f 01.01.2007.
ii) Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy or TB functional promotion from JTO/JAO & SDE/AO & Sr SDE/Sr AO & DE/CAO/EE without linking with existing seniority and availability of posts with a residency period of 5 years for each promotion.
iii) Maximum residency period for first TB promotion is recommended to reduce from 6 years to 5 years w.e.f 01.10.2000.
The committee has been reconstituted after SNEA agitation in April-May, 2015 with Sri Mohammed Ashraf Khan as the Chairman. This decision has been taken in the meeting between SNEA and CMD, DIR(HR) and ED(Fin) on 06.05.2015 during the agitation. CMD assured in the meeting that the committee will conclude the recommendations by 15.08.2015 by regular meetings, atleast once in a fortnight. The earlier committee formed on 28.02.2012 was defunct for more than 3 years which compelled SNEA to launch trade union actions in February, 2014 and in April-May, 2015. After the reconstitution, SNEA followed up the issues on a day to day basis which resulted in the final recommendations within four and half months. Before that SNEA pursued the pay scale issue in DoT and DPE and got the proposal of E1A and e2A rejected by DPE.
Comrades, we have to be very vigilant and in full organizational preparedness to ensure that the recommendations are implemented in totality without any change. As some negative forces are working to see that no cadre issue is getting resolved for the absorbed/directly recruited Executives, we have to keep ourselves prepared for any organizational actions in short notice to see that the recommendations are getting implemented in minimum possible time.
B. Popularising and effective marketing of new Broad band schemes with 2 Mbps speed.
C. New business avenue by imparting training – advantage of recent tour to Kenya to attend the Afro-Asia submit.

M. S. S. Rao, allowing him to continue on sensitive post. Delay in deciding on issue of such importance is completely against the spirit of Hon Prime Minister to get rid the system of corruption.

c) The seniors on revision /restoration of seniority list 1 to 17 will be given notional promotion, notional pay (without arrears), pension and the service will be counted for the next promotion.
d) The 147 officers will not be included in seniority list 1 to 17 as their names were not available in the original list. Assn strongly objected BSNL move to include their names in the original list 1 to 17 by inserting their names and giving seniority from 1990 onwards. Further Hon Ernakulam HC quashed their revision of seniority from 1994 to 1990 onwards also. Finally BSNL agreed to submit the original seniority lists of 1 to 17 to the expert committee without inserting the names of 147 officers which committee accepted.
