Meeting regarding transfer policy and various HR issues

Apr 14, 2014

Along with our ally association AIBSNLEA our AIGETOA Circle representatives had a detail discussion with circle management regarding transfer policy and various HR issues. Our CS  Shri Ashish Jain, CP Shri Riyajahmed Patvekar , CWC Shri Pankaj Bhavsar along with CS AIBSNLEA Shri V.P. Kulkrani, AGS AIBSNLEA, Shri A.J. Joshi, Shri C.S. Saste had participated from association side. From Management side CGMT shri M.K. Jain with Shri Pravinkumar Malhotra GM HR & Admin, Shri Mukesh Mangal DGM HR & Admin and AGM Admin Shri Sule were present.

Elaborate discussion on each point of transfer policy was carried out. Details are as below:-

  • Point No. 1 & 2 are discussed and there was no any suggestion.
  • Point No. 3:- On this point our forum insisted to consider date of application submitted to controlling officer as crucial date for consideration in waiting list in the transfer. This is to confirm that delay on part of SSA administration in forwarding the application will not affect official claim in wait list. This is agreed by management.
  • Point No. 4 & 5 are agreed
  • Point No.6: We have demanded for giving choice posting of executives posted at All India soft tenure stations (Sindhudurgh & Gadchiroli). As it was mentioned in the corporate office transfer policy not to give choice of posting for soft tenure stations management is willing to first call opinion of corporate office on providing such privilege.
  • Point No. 7 & 8 are agreed
  • Point No. 9:- We have demanded that permissible EL & CL within the tenure period of official should be counted. Any EL or CL beyond permissible limit will not be counted in serving at tenure station and official has to serve more the days he will avail extra leave in order to complete his tenure. Point was agreed by management.
  • Point No. 10 & 11:- We have very long discussion on implementing point to point request transfer. Both associations strongly refused to accept point to point transfers as it is against natural justice and there was court order against such method. We demanded for longest stay official should be go to the SSA as a reliver to official requested for transfer. While many peoples are enjoying stay for more than 30 years at same SSA, officials at popular stations like Nagpur, Pune, Nashik, Kalyan will be affected each time. Discussion goes on a long time and could not come to conclusion as both our associations and management are admant on their stands. After vigorous discussion it is decided to keep open these points for the discussion later on.
  • Point No. 12 - We have insisted for execution of request transfers twice in the year in the month of March and September. Management agreed on point.
  • Point no. 13, 14 & 15 agreed.
  • Point no. 16 : We have insisted to include the consideration of requests of officials having  mentally retired childrens on medical ground along with diseases mentioned in the draft. Also our association insisted to consider physically handicapped officials requests also. We have provided the policies of Govt of India regarding posting and transfer of PWD candidates. Management agreed on the point.
  • Point No. 17: Our ally association has raised objection ¿on intention to include point that immunity from transfer will not be granted automatically to union/association office bearers. This was assessed by management and agreed to delete such words. But management insisted to at least recommendation for such cases should be come through CS/CP of association.
  • Point No.18 : Regarding posting of staff from urban to rural and rural to urban within SSA including mobile Unit /RTTC/CTTC, both associations agreed on point except for GM (Nodal) Pune staff. As GM (Nodal) is directly reporting to CGMT Maharashtra and this staff is involved in handling mobile network not only in Maharashtra but all western zone of India we have demanded to give separate SSA privilege to GM(Nodal) and this staff should not be included in urban/rural transfer with PGMT Pune staff. Management assessed our point and agreed on this issue.
  • MMRDA area : Both associations strongly demanded that transfers within MMRDA area of Mumbai should not be considered as break in SSA. Also we have demanded that the area like Panvel where HRA is 30% should be excluded from the tenure stations list. Management assessed our point and it is decided to assess stations those are coming in MMRDA area and then will decide on matter. Also to exclude Panvel from tenure is also agreed.

The discussion was taken for more than 3 hours. Management in the guidance of CGMT Shri M.K. Jain has listened us very patiently and positively. Management is appreciated that both associations AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA are come ahead commonly to resolve issues in amicable way. Management appreciated this blender of experience and qualified youth in the form of forum of association.

We are thankful to Hon. CGMT Shri M.K. Jain for his positive listening to us. Also we are thankful to Hon GM(HR & Admin) Shri Pravinkumar Malhotra for his initiative and positive approch in solving the HR issues in co operation with associations. We also thankful to Shri Mukesh Managal DGM(HR & Admin) and AGM (Admin) Shri Sule for their efforts to solve issues,We also thankfull to CS  AIBSNLEA Shri V. P.

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.
