Breaking News & Events


Sep 1, 2014

Our beloved General Secretary Shri. R.P. Shahuji assured to all members need not to worry, United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations (AIGETOA & AIBSNLEA) has already taken this issue with management and is perusing the same strongly. We will not hesitate in going to the extreme if management doesn't withdraw this arbitrary order. The displacements will not be allowed at any cost. Click here for letter


Aug 31, 2014

In Joint Meeting of AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA on 22nd Aug-14 at Hyderabad, it was decided to submit joint cautionary letter to management on various pending HR issues and then launch Joint agitation if need arise. But unfortunately getting this message, SNEA (I) has declared it’s agitation program alone. It indubitable that during the referendum process management cannot take decision under agitation pressure of any stand-alone association participating in referendum process. In fact management was in the process to take decision on Standard Pay Scale, 30% Superannuation, Time Bound Functional Promotion & Uniform Period of 4 years for First Time Bound Promotion etc. this decision will be held up due to this agitation notice as management cannot take risk to give credit to any single association.

 What forced SNEA (I) to serve agitation notice alone during the process of referendum is very much clear. This association doesn't see their commitment to resolve the very basic issues in respect of direct recruits but their agitation is simply to withhold the resolution.

 AIGETOA has already held long agitation of about 50 days during last one year on these issues, results of which is very much visible that every association including BSNL top management have recognized the legitimacy of our issues. Despite of the fact that SNEA (I) has served this agitation notice to sabotage the resolution of the issues, AIGETOA will extend full physical support if they really show their commitment towards resolution of the issues and they serve notice for stronger agitation then AIGETOA has already held. We are also confident that AIBSNLEA will come together along with AIGETOA to support this strong agitation program.

 Com. Kabir Das, GS Officiating JTO Association in his speech requested to settle the long pending issue of amendment of JTO RR to take care of the officiating JTOs.

Com. Amit Gupta, Sr. Veteran Leader and the AGS AIRBSNLWEA   in his speech mentioned that retired officer never get any chance to address the Board level officers and thanked the AP circle for giving an opportunity to address the gathering.  He demanded 78.2% IDA fixation to the pensioners' for the executives who have been retired prior to 10.6.2013.  If it is paid atleast for one month prior to the retirement without any arrears, there will be substantial difference in the pension.  He also mentioned that the medical facilities for the retired officers are very poor.  The bills of pensioners for outside treatment are pending for years together.  He thanked GS AIBSNLEA for taking up and pursuing the demand of the pensioners for 78.2% IDA fixation and giving a change to address the grievances in the forum.  

Com. Kaushik, GS TEAM, MTNL, Delhi in his speech mentioned that the people joining the Govt. service for the social security and employment security.  He has mentioned that there is lack of HR management in the BSNL. Earlier days, the then Govt. were mentioning that the JTOs are the back bone of the organisation.  Both the BSNL and MTNL are in loss just because of the wrong policies of the Govt. for which the employees are not responsible.  It is for the BSNL management to appraise the case to the Govt.  When there is a clear cut direction that 30% benefit has to be granted the reason for not implementing the same is not known.  The option in BSNL and MTNL has been given by the employees out of compulsion.  The children of the many of the senior have completed engineering and working in private sector and changing the job frequently without any loyalty to the company.  Whereas, these young graduate engineers are having loyalty for which they are being punished by the BSNL management.  There should not be any pay difference in the officers between BSNL and MTNL.  The pay scale drawing by the MTNL should be immediately paid by the BSNL.  He requested to the officers of the board level management to take a decision to grant E2 scale to the JTO/JAO and equivalent officers.  He has also mentioned that many of the young officers are leaving the BSNL after serving for 3-4 years and taking training with the expenses of the BSNL due to the wrong HR policies of the BSNL. With the change of time personal management has gone and Human resources management is in force.  The work force is not the liability of the management it is the responsibility and asset of the management. He demanded that there should be no disparity between MTNL and BSNL, immediate implementation of 30% benefit to the youngsters and within 20 years the executives entered in E2 should reach to E11scale.

Shri S S Aggarwal, GM (Personal) BSNL CO on behalf of the HR heads of the BSNL management wished best wishes for the joint open session.  He mentioned that there was a head of circle conference in the Delhi during last two days and all the heads of Circles are putting their best efforts to revive the BSNL.  He mentioned that MoC in the heads of the circle conference has communicated that new Govt. wants the  BSNL to perform its best. It is seen that all the board of Directors are working hard for the better of the BSNL and putting their maximum efforts.  It was because of these Directors that these many DE posts could get filled by diversion from the DR quota.  The management of BSNL is working for the benefit of its employees and public.  He agreed that the workforce is the assets of the BSNL.  He mentioned that almost all the senior officers are in the verge of retirement and the young officers are only going to run the BSNL in the future.  He requested to have faith in the BSNL management, he mentioned that BSNL management is with its workforce.  He mentioned that in order to balance out the shortages, there are some transfers in the recent DE regular order which is part of the promotion.  He informed that the syllabus of the JTO LICE has been simplified. He mentioned the Com. Prahlad Rai is a matured leader taking care of all the executives.

Shri Kalyan Sagar, CGM NATFM, Hyderabad conveyed all the best on behalf of the E.D. (Finance) who could not attend the function.  He mentioned that we have assets and liabilities.  The workforce is Human capital.  There are as many as opportunities as much of the employees.  The brand name of BSNL should be converted into brand equity with joint efforts.  He demanded the BSNL top management to give hope to its employees.  As regards the pay fixation of JAO 2010 batch  will be taken care.   He mentioned that Delloittee consultant has not contacted any of the CGMs before finalizing their report and demanded the BSNL top management to take care of these matters.  He mentioned that it is painful to make such report without consulting any of the CGMs.  NATFM will support for any cause to strengthen the BSNL management.  He also wished best wishes to the CWC.

Shri V Srinivasan, CGM AP Telecom Circle  mentioned that he has attended the meeting of the MoC, wherein MoC has informed that Govt. has made many programmes to improve the telecom services in the country which needs step by step progress.  MoC also mentioned in the HoCC that BSNL have been losing customers as well as financially.  The customer perception about BSNL is not positive.  Blaming each other is the human weakness.  He has mentioned about the revenue collection and net loss of BSNL.  He also mentioned that 78.2% IDA pay has resulting in 110 crore less revenue for the last year in the AP Circle.   He mentioned about the status of the ITI and mentioned that when there is no money in the company no association / unions will exist.  He also mentioned that it is our responsibility to prosper the BSNL instead of talking about individual prosperity. In the organization for doing work everybody want approval from the boss, but at the same time for taking salary from the bank, they do not want any permission from boss. When we get the salary at the end of the month, it is our personal responsibility to discharge my duty without any direction from boss. The destiny of BSNL is in our thoughts words and actions and we have to see that we create a good destine for the BSNL. Only when we are ready to take temporary pain then only you can get long term gain. He has also mentioned that he has a good co-ordinal relation with the AIBSNLEA team of AP.

Shri Anupam Srivastava, Director (CM/Finance), BSNL C.O mentioned that the employees and the officers are the actual assets of the BSNL.  13000 crore is being paid towards the salary per annum to these employees.  He mentioned that he is happy to be here in the joint open session of the AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA.  He mentioned that 'H' in the word Hyderabad stands for Honesty and he has started his career in ECIL, Hyderabad.

He mentioned that during his first interaction with the MoC, MoC has mentioned that Govt. has done lot of injustice to the BSNL and now want to improve it and all the Directors should work hard failing which they will not be spared.  He mentioned that if we approach with commitment, success cannot run away from us.  He also mentioned that united respective efficiency can lead us to the destination and get success.

He mentioned that AIBSNLEA maintains the website efficiently with entirely details which many of the senior officers visiting to get the information.  He also mentioned that there is good transparency in the AIBSNLEA, wherein everybody is allowed to express their views.  We have allowed other operators to compete with us freely instead we should have followed the policy of British Telecom who is the operator of the telecom operators, not sharing of copper cable with the private completers were not right, thirdly not sharing the tower timely.

He also mentioned that now we are growing with negative revenue in the Mobile business and need commitment from the CGMs and his team to install the towers in time to start earning the revenues.

Mobile Data is the future growth of the BSNL and the voice business has gone and the same is taken over by data.  The key business is in the Data and the landline asset should be utilized to strengthen the data network. He mentioned that together we can achieve a better future for the BSNL.

Shri N K Gupta, Director (CFA), BSNL C.O informed that Secretary Telecom has convened a meeting on Tuesday afternoon to discuss about the revival of the BSNL.  He mentioned that Board of Directors are not the owner of the BSNL, they are also answerable to their superiors.  When there is no money with BSNL how can be made the payment. He informed that the day is not far when we have to take loan to pay the salary.  We have to increase the revenue from Mobiles services.  He mentioned that the BSNL management has good respect towards the young generation and it is for them to see that the BSNL prospects.   BSNL management is always having soft corner towards the young generation and wants to consider the demands of the AIGETOA.  However, when the financial constraints come on the way, the decisions are delayed. 

He mentioned that as per the discussions with the MoC, Govt. is serious about revival of BSNL and MTNL. Because of the security reasons, BSNL should continue for the country.  He further mentioned that there is lot of disconnection in Broadband throughout the country which needs immediately action to arrest the trend.  This is one of the major reasons for loss of revenue.

BSNL has modernized the website of BSNL making it more customers friendly and take many services. He told that, implementation of the NGN switch in progress throughout the country, which needs fullest co-operation and action from the executives. He mentioned that some miscreants want the BSNL should not grow by making illogical complaints about tenders and all put allegations on the genuine officers, which we need to take care.  He wished all the best to the open session and expected that good decisions will be arrived out of the discussions to improve the BSNL.

GS AIBSNLEA mentioned that before joining of Shri N.K. Gupta, there was no tender available for any of the equipments and materials has started arriving at the field office which gives some relief to the field.  He also mentioned that there are loans for procurement of the equipment, and behalf of the executives GS assured the BSNL management that all the executives will work hard and support the BSNL in turn to the Nation. He also mentioned that there are many vigilance complaints against the leaders and the associations will stand with the BSNL management and will not allow any miscreant to damage the growth of BSNL.

 GS AIBSNLEA, OS (North) AIBSNLEA alongwith, VP AIGETOA Shri Mantosh Kumar and CWC Member AIGETOA Shri Shubhendu Sharma met GM (SR), Sh. Neeraj Verma. Meeting lasted more than an hour and various issues were discussed at length:

 Membership verification: It was insisted from the association side to conduct an unbiased election for the executive association. As this is an organisation and voters are related with each other in many counts thus such influence may have rippling effect against the spirit and motto of referendum. We pleaded that the secrecy and transparency should be remain prime most factors in the ensuing referendum process. GM (SR) assured to look into the matter.

Superannuation benefits to BSNL recruited Executives:Association side has reiterated that 30% superannuation benefits must be extended to all direct recruits of BSNL for their social security. It was conveyed to GM (SR) that these benefits are for direct recruits only and he insisted for some documentary support in this regard to further strengthen the case. We pleaded that the case is very genuine in nature and the time has came that the case should be resolve in true spirit. GM (SR) assured to look into the matter and advised to have discussions with GM (Estt.) and GM (CA) BSNL CO on this issue.

Salary refund in various circles: It was suggested to initiate affirmative move like salary refund during agitation period to induce synergy among the workforce. Association has pointed out that salary cut process was not implemented in uniformity leading to huge financial loss to few persons, refunding of salary may prove a confidence building measure. GM (SR) assured to look into the matter.

Implementation of Standard pay scale i.e. E-2, E-3: As DPE has rejected the non standard E1A, E2A pay scale and the same has been endorsed by DoT to BSNL. BSNL management has left with no other options rather implementing E2, and E3 for JTOs and SDEs. GM (SR) was convinced but mentioned that Government should consider payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of highest of the pay scale and suggested to take up the issue with Establishment cell.

Inter circle transfer (Rule- 8) cases: Association side has emphasized to settle the long pending Rule- 8 cases. Lighting up the issue association pointed out that out of 34000 sanctioned strength of JTOs only around 14000 is the current working strength, which leads about 62% shortage of JTOs at national level. It is essential to discover some ways for proper induction of manpower rather than harassing executives who are in need. Shortage can not be the region to turn down a genuine request as lesser induction may be a policy decision to reduce operating expenses in a particular time frame. GM (SR) appreciated our concern and mentioned that new JTO RR 2014 and new TTA RR 2014 may sort out the problem.

Payment of the Honorarium to the Trainers at SSA level:We demanded to issue the orders to the field units for the release of the honorarium to the identified trainers at SSA Level for implementing the HOCC agenda skill set improvement training at SSA level. GM (SR) assured to look into the matter.

Aug 8, 2014

                                Today is 8th August, a historic day for AIGETOA.

Just look behind one year, We all remember this day as a sign of unity among direct recruits irrespective of cast, creed and batches. Many would ask what did we achieve out of this unity? Friends, protest and agitation is not to achieve result on the floor of agitation but it just to show our commitment and highlight the genuineness of our demands. Success of any agitation and protest is not measured in terms of immediate outcome on the floor but it is measured in terms of participation of members, showing our unity, highlighting the genuineness of demands and pushing the demands upwards in the priority of resolution.

No one can deny that this association had been able to achieve all these things with all of your support. Top management of BSNL including boards of director have first time realized not only the genuineness of our issues but also the importance of direct recruits for survival of BSNL. Struggle is continues process till the achievement of justice and we will keep it on in one or other form. Once again, congratulation to all of you for making this day as sign of unity among direct recruits in BSNL and showing our commitment and struggle against injustice


Aug 8, 2014

Some of ex-representatives of AIGETOA who could not secure their leadership position in AIGETOA due to obvious reason are now spreading false rumor that registration of AIGETOA is no more valid. They are the people who had tried their level best by making false complain to Registrar of Society and BSNL management to create trouble during our agitation in July-Aug-2014 but they were failed to do so, now they are once again become active to disunite direct recruit fraternity by spreading false rumor.

Be aware of such people having only personal interest. AIGETOA is already in the process to take appropriate actions against these ex representatives for their wrong deeds while holding the post of AIGETOA.

It is to clarify that AIGETOA and it's present governing body is fully valid and registered under society act of Haryana Government. Haryana Government has amended its society act and hence asked all the associations under Haryana Government to apply for new registration number under new act by submitting their audit report, membership list and constitution copy. This association is already in the process to submit these requirements. Till new registration numbers of societies are not allotted, old registration number of the societies will remain valid.

Hence all direct recruits are requested, do not be trapped behind such rumors created by vested interest, come forward, give your hands together, deposit subscription /membership form and make this association strong

GS writes to CMD BSNL in regard to the issues raised by SNEA at Kerala circle

Jul 13, 2014

GS writes to CMD BSNL in regard to the issues raised by SNEA at Kerala circle. AIGETOA has requested for intervention of CMD BSNL and has extended its moral support on the issues which pertains to growth and development of BSNL. Friends some of the members may wonder why we have extended support to SNEA when their approach towards our issues and our association has never been very positive. But we are of the firm view that issues of growth and survival raised by any association should not be suppressed in a coercive way by any management. It gives rise to ruthlessness and arrogance on the part of management which will not be good for any association and any organisation in future. Keeping this point in view we have extended our moral support on the issues pertaining to growth and survival of BSNL and have requested to analyse and reconsider the decisions which appear anti-business prima facie. However, in regard to taking a final call on the future course of action, we have authorized AIGETOA Kerala circle body. Click here for Letter

Acknowledging that both BSNL and MTNL are currently in financial distress, the government today said it is "quite serious" to restore the health of the two telecom services providers by adopting various measures like a whopping Rs 39,458 crore fresh investment over five years. "Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) are in financial distress.

BSNL and MTNL are faced with declining revenues from loss of market share, increasing expenditure and inability of invest in expansion of communications network," Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said in Rajya Sabha during Question Hour.

Responding to a question on the performance of the two PSUs, he said,"The Government is quite serious to improve the health of the two bodies."

DoT to create new ISP licence for cable TV broadband operators.

Jul 7, 2014

DoT  is planning to create a new category of internet service provider (ISP) licence for provisioning of cable TV broadband services. The move is aimed at leveraging extensive infrastructure of cable TV service provider to drive broadband penetration in the country.In this regard, the government is keen to reconsider a proposal of India's broadband policy of 2004, which had suggested use of the country's cable TV infrastructure as a franchisee network of internet service providers for providing broadband services.

The creation of a separate ISP licence is likely to be a part of the new broadband policy that the government is framing. The policy will envisage provision of broadband services as a fundamental right and aims to attract investor interest for development of optic fibre cable (OFC) networks.The new policy is also likely to advance the target date for broadband penetration to 600 million from 2020 to 2019, while the target of 175 million by 2015 will continue.

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.
