AIGETOA chq: United forum meeting with CMD BSNL and Director (HR):

Dec 12, 2015

The representatives of united forum of BSNL executives association of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA were invited by Director (HR) to discuss the demands raised in the agitation notice in the presence of PGM (SR), GM (PERS) and Additional GM (SR). GS AIBSNLEA, Advisor (HQ) AIBSNLEA and President AIGETOA, AGS AIGETOA, CS DELHI AIGETOA & Delhi CWC Member AIGETOA attended the meeting on behalf of United Forum. All the demands were discussed in detail but Director (HR) preferred to take the final view by CMD BSNL for resolution of the demands and she immediately arranged a meeting of United Forum with CMD BSNL in his chamber. Further, on the issues, all the demands were discussed in detail with CMD BSNL in the presence of Director (HR) and other officers. CMD appreciated our concern and after detailed discussions, directed Director (HR) to give written assurance for the settlement of the demands in a time bound manner. The minutes of the meeting will be released on Monday and thereafter United Forum will decide the future course of actions.

 

CMD BSNL appreciated the concern of United Forum and acknowledged that under the changed scenario in BSNL, the MT recruitment is not the requirement of BSNL since ITS officers are continuing in BSNL on deployment basis, STS level executives are being promoted to DGM (Posts) in all disciplines, absorbed group A level executives are being promoted to the grade of SAG and HAG in BSNL and enough internal talent is available in BSNL to take the higher managerial positions with new promotion policies to be framed. CMD BSNL emphasized that there is need for promoting internal talent in the company and hence HR wing should devise strategy to promote the internal executives and groom them for taking higher responsibilities. United Forum requested that if Management is not willing to recruit Management Trainees any further, then there is no need to hold the SRD recruitment also as when the main exam is not taking place then there is no question of filling up the reserved vacancies either. United Forum side also emphasized that when there has been no recruitment for even vertical reservation posts for SC/ST/OBC categories etc., how BSNL can hold SRD for PWD candidates which is a horizontal reservation. CMD BSNL acknowledged the associations side views but explained that the ongoing process for Recruitment of MT (SRD) is being done under the directions of DoP&T/DoT on the basis of Hon’ble Supreme Court Judgement and BSNL is under compulsion to hold the exam unless until there is specific directive from the Hon’ble court for not going ahead. United Forum side told CMD BSNL that the directions of Hon’ble Supreme court is for filling up the unfilled vacancies and not for filling up the vacancies of a cadre which has not yet been born in BSNL. United Forum further informed that this has happened due to reporting the unfilled vacancies of MT as back log inadvertently and hence there is no need for going on for recruitment in a cadre whose future in BSNL is yet uncertain. CMD BSNL expressed his inability to stop the process in absence of any specific directions from court. However, CMD BSNL directed Director (HR) that MT exam which was deferred on 7th July 2015 be deferred for another six months further and in the meanwhile the proposal for scrapping of MT recruitment altogether be taken up in the next meeting of the BSNL Board.

 

CMD BSNL also asked Director (HR) to finalize the implementation of committee recommendation on CPSU Hierarchy and Standard IDA Pay scales (E2 and E3) to JTO and SDE equivalent executives by 26th January 2016. He further directed Director (HR) and GM (Pers) to fill up all DGM Vacant posts by 31st March 2015 on regular basis.
On DGM recruitment, he directed GM (Pers/Recruitment) to declare the results of internal executives who appeared in the exam. GM (Recruitment) said that the same has not been done in view of the court orders. United Forum side informed that there is no bar by Hon’ble Court on declaring the results and Hon’ble Court has only upheld that framing the recruitment rules are prerogative of BSNL. CMD BSNL acknowledged the United Forum view and asked GM (Pers) to arrange for the declaration of results and if required, he should seek the permission of Hon’ble court. He also asked GM (Pers/Rectt) to review the DGM RRs for ending the discrimination vis-à-vis internal executives and come up with a revised RR where there is no discrimination with internal executives. On the ongoing recruitment process, CMD BSNL asked GM (Pers) to keep him informed on the further developments and to inform the association side before taking any final decision.

 

On other issues, Director (HR) assured that she shall be looking for their resolution of these issues within a defined time frame and requested association side to be in continuous touch for expediting all issues like filling up of the vacant posts in Group B/STS/JAG equivalent grades, creation of PPS posts, implementation of 30% Superannuation Benefits to Direct Recruits, restructuring of AD (OL) Cadres, E1+5 advance increment benefit to JTO (SRD)/JAO 2013 batch and PA Cadre, Declaration of LDCE results, allowing of Stepping of Pay to seniors w.r.t their Juniors, framing of policy in regard to Rule-8 cases, etc.

 

United Forum side also requested for holding a joint agenda meet with director (HR) on all issues shortly hereafter.

BSNL CO ISSUED ORDER FOR MAKING EPF CONTRIBUTION FOR TRAINING PERIOD

Aug 10, 2015

Congratulation one and all

 

After very long struggle by this association singularly and after assuming the charge by our new Director (HR) and then tough instruction to concern cell in our last agenda meeting held on 04-08-2015 finally BSNL CO has issued order for making EPF contribution for training period. Click here for order <<<Letter>>>

 

It shows that consistent struggle for genuine issues never go to vain. We remember the great words from our Director (HR) in our last agenda meeting that justice should not be denied in pretext of financial position of the company. It is instruction from Director (HR) to HR managers that employees are most voluble assets of the company and every issue of the employees must be addressed on merit and bring the resolution accordingly without keeping in mind the financial position of the company. It is responsibility of the company to arrange money for genuine issues. This association is very much hopeful that these words of Director (HR) will open the door of justice and our all the genuine issues will be resolved on merit.

HOLDING OF DEMONSTRATIONS ON 12.08.2015

Aug 10, 2015

It is learnt that Cabinet has approved the BSNL proposal for formation of a Subsidiary Tower Company, by hiving off the 65000 mobile towers of BSNL. In this regard, BSNL top management has conducted awareness session before representatives of all associations and unions in the month of May-2014. All representatives had supported the idea but opposed the formation of new company. As the tower business is Profitable business and need dedicated team for operation and maintenance hence association had proposed for formation of separate vertical within BSNL instead of forming new company. Formation of new company is nothing but may be hidden agenda of Government to privatize all such profitable area of BSNL one by one.

CHQ Updates:Kind attention young members of this association- 30% fitment case dismissed by Humble P-CAT

Apr 30, 2013

It is learnt that case filled by some group of JTO recruited after 1.1.2007 before Humble P-CAT Delhi seeking 30% fitment as of existing executive citing principle of equality i.e. equal pay for equal work has been out-rightly dismissed on 23rd April-2013.

 

 On various platforms this association has been trying to convey to the members that this principle does not hold good in this case. There is only possibility of getting E2 pay scale that to tough fight is require through this association platform with your active support. This association will also try to minimise the pay difference once pay scale is finalized but it is not possible without your active support. Many may confuse this young blood to expend the hard earn money in knocking the door of court of law with the issue having no merit but it is only the association which can bring the justice.

Hence extend your full support to this association taking full ownership. Instead of begging, Association has decided to snatch our rights through the mouth of evil BSNL management in time bound manner which require unconditional and close association of members with full trust on leadership.

The CEC meet of AIGETOA CHQ and CS/CP was held on 21st and 22nd April 2013 at CTO Sabhagar complex, New Delhi. Representatives of almost all of the circles participated in the meet. The meeting was held as per agenda schedule wherein CHQ and CS/CP/CWC of the circles voiced their opinion on various agenda items. Some important activities like finalization of the election norms and future course of action for the association were finalized.

 On 21st April association related activities were finalized and various resolutions were taken regarding the election process for next AIC. Details of the resolution will be circulated through group mail.

 On 22nd April, representatives met again and burning issues were discussed.

 After discussions, it was noted by each member present in the meeting that management has been continuously ignoring the interests of the Direct recruits and are not willing to listen their grievances. It was decided that we have waited enough and if management is not willing, we have to make them listen and force them to resolve the issues.

 Thereafter, GS along with other representatives unanimously decided that no further begging, they should immediately go to CMD and tell them that they will have to listen to the grievances and resolve the issues cum rights in a time bound manner. GS along with all the representatives then moved to the third floor of BSNL CO to meet CMD. Unfortunately, CMD was on leave due to some medical problem, we all Gherao Director(HR/EB) with shouting slogan “AIGETOA ZINDABAD, BSNL MANAGEMENT MURDABAD”and in a clear manner communicated that till management doesn’t commits the resolution of the issues and define the timelines, not even a single person will move an inch from the place and we all sat together. We all were ready to face any consequences including police arrest for snatching our rights.

 Director (HR/EB) sensing the gravity of the situation called to meet the representatives and discuss the issues. Immediately heads of various HR groups and Finance wing dealing with the issues were called. The meeting lasted for 3 hours and various issues were discussed and timelines were committed. In the first phase some of the long pending cadre issues were discussed. The minutes of the meeting will be released soon. Click here for Detail of the discussion

 Friends, though Director (HR/EB) has realized the reason behind desperation of the executives up to such extent and committed for the resolution of issues in timelines but we should not relax. We should be vigilant enough of the situation and be ready for striking hard with a loud voice and full vigor if the issues are not settled in time line as committed by Director (HR/EB). We should keep ourselves prepared for next struggle which is start soon after the timelines. If management resolves, well and fine otherwise we have to once again make them realize the might and power of the DR unity.

MTNL to deploy telecom tech developed by IIT-B across city.

Apr 8, 2013

Mumbai will be the first city to have India-developed Carrier Ethernet Switch Routers that provide telecommunication services with an additional layer of security for customer data.These routers can carry leased services, software-defined networking and secure communications. The Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd will deploy these routers across eight sites in the city.The telecom hardware is being manufactured by the Hyderabad-based Electronics Corporation of India Ltd (ECIL) under licence from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. The national telecom carrier and the electronics major signed a memorandum of understanding at the IIT last week to implement the initiative.This is perhaps the first instance where a carrier-class technology developed at an academic institution has found its way to a tier-1 provider in India in the transport network, a release from ECIL said.

The Ethernet switch routers have been designed and developed by IIT, Bombay. They are the fastest in the business and consume less power. MTNL will will offer carrier-class services to enterprise customers, government agencies and other bodies from each site.

These include Ethernet services, leased lines and MPLS network access from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps. The backbone of the network will consist of 10 Gbps links that would route carrier Ethernet and optical transport network packets.Devang Khakhar, Director, IIT Bombay said that the deployment of its licensed technology would set a new benchmark in technology adoption from the IIT system to industry.

Peeyush Agrawal, Executive Director, MTNL said an earlier version of the hardware was tried in its data centre after its launch in May 2011.P. Sudhakar, Chairman and Managing Director, ECIL said the collaboration with IIT Bombay helped bring the technology to the market.

Telecom won’t lay golden egg for now: Hon.MoC Shri.Sibal

Apr 6, 2013

Union telecom minister Kapil Sibal said on Wednesday that he fears signing files as he doesn’t know how courts would interpret such decisions in the future. The telecom sector will never lay a golden egg again.“The bureaucrat wonders if he should take this decision if ten years from now, somebody hauls him up in the court and says it is time for him to go in... I fear... I personally sitting on that chair. I fear to sign something as I don’t know what is going to happen in the court of law five years from now,” Sibal said, in response to questions at the CII’s annual general meeting.

 Union telecom minister Kapil Sibal said that it is time that the contours of jurisdiction must be respected.“In the absence of that we are going to go through a chaotic state of affairs, which is no good for anybody. The sense of fear emanates from there,” he said. This sense of fear has happened since 2010 he said, and blamed “the CAG and the most independent media in the world,” among others, for this.

Sibal said that the telecom sector was the golden goose which laid the golden egg and the government itself has just got a mere Rs 1,000 crore.  The golden goose will never lay the golden egg again for a little while ... What is the result of all this? The sector is under debt of Rs 2.50 lakh crore. So I like to know who has benefited?,” questioned Sibal.
