EPF Procedure for On-Line Transfer Claims – reg.

Sep 21, 2014

GS submitted the concern of AIGETOA on the issue of HR integration of BSNL and MTNL.

Sep 20, 2014

Our main concern are :

 Pay scale of all executives of BSNL must be upgraded at par with MTNL executives along with notional pay fixation on point to point basis from 01-10-2000. Deference amount must be paid to all BSNL executives as arrear.

As absorbed executives/non-executives of BSNL and MTNL both are already covered under Central Government pension scheme, 30% superannuation benefit as ordered by DPE must be extended to all direct recruits executives/non-executives (who are not covered under government pension scheme) of BSNL and MTNL from Oct-2000.

BSNL and MTNL both must formulate common executives promotion policy before merger in such a way that seniority and availability of post can be delinked and time bound functional promotion up to SG-JAG level can be extended to executives. This will not only end hundreds of litigation on seniority issues already exist or likely to exist on merger of BSNL and MTNL but also fulfill the commitment made to the executives in terms of absorption condition. <<Click here for submission >>

GS writes letter to CMD BSNL on cases of appointment on compassionate grounds to a dependent family member of BSNL employee died in harness thereby leaving his family in penury and without any means of livelihood. Click here for letter


We are working in Government Company and serving various social obligations rather doing purely commercial business. Apart from this, we all are human being and supposed to have feeling of the pain of such fateful families. Decision on such cases must have been taken fast and out of turn but it is regret to mention that there are number of such cases lying pending since long with the corporate office High Power Committee to take decision upon which shows the level of sensitivity towards such pain. This is not only depriving the family of deceased but also challenging the loyalty of the working employees of BSNL.

GS AIGETOA writes to GS SNEA (I) in respect of their ongoing agitation and requested to appeal all executives associations of BSNL to further intensify the agitation program. Click here for letter

Authorities were in process to resolution of our very basic issues in respect of pay scale and superannuation benefits but due to the stand alone notice served by SNEA (I) same is lingered. We all must know that when referendum process of executives association is in place it is almost impossible to take decision under pressure of agitation notice by any single association participating in referendum process. Tentative dates for further intensifying the agitation program as declared in the website of SNEA (I) indicates that this agitation is just to stop the resolution of the issues till the referendum. This association hopes that executives association must be keen towards resolution of the issues on merit rather political stunt to attract the favor of Direct Recruits Executives in referendum.

Government considers closing some loss-making state firms like BSNL, MTNL, Air India. Click here for Media News

Government officials are to meet today to consider proposals to close struggling state-backed operators Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL), the Economic Times writes. The officials are to review options for the ten biggest loss-making state-held entities, a list which also includes Air India, Hindustan Photofilms and Hindustan Fertilisers Corporation and was responsible for a combined net loss of INR245 billion (USD4.01 billion) in the 2012/2013 financial year. Whilst extreme measures such as closure are on the table, the officials are also to look into the potential to revive the ailing businesses, through capital infusion, joint ventures and management changes.

 Plans to shut down any of the firms will face fierce opposition from trade unions, however. A spokesperson for Bharatiya Mazadoor Sangh (Indian Workers’ Union BMS) was quoted as saying that it will work with other unions to block the move: ‘We are coordinating with all central trade unions on the matter. We are fortunate that all trade unions are on the same page when it comes to these issues.’ Action from trade unions have long made the situation at BSNL worse, obstructing efforts to restructure the telco, fearing lay-offs.

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.

Apr 25, 2013

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.
