DPE needlessly advises DOT to get cabinet approval to relax/amend affordability clause for BSNL:

Therefore we feel that DPE advice to DoT to get cabinet approval for relaxation/amendment of guidelines is needless. AIBSNLOA will continue to take up the matter with DPE as well as MOSC.

Leaders of Organisation of BSNL Unions and Associations meet Shri Anant Geete, Hon'ble Minister of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises:

Taking forward their efforts further in the matter of early implementation of pay revision for BSNL employees, Leaders of Organisation of BSNL Unions and Associations, Com.Rakesh Sethi GS AIBSNLOA, Com.Rana Pratap GS BEA, Com.Zile Singh GS BSNLSU, Com Manoj Dewadi and Com.P.C. Rastogi AGS, AIBSNLOA met Shri Anant Geete, Hon'ble Minister of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises today and submitted a Memorandum requesting him to direct DoT regarding revision of pay scales of BSNL employees. They explained to him that BSNL's losses was due to its implementing social obligations of Government of India by providing financially unviable service in rural and remote areas, the Government not keeping its assurance at the time of formation of BSNL that it will be compensated for these services and BSNL being compelled to make pension contribution on the maximum of the pay scale instead of on the basis of actual pay, to cite a few reasons. They pointed out that MTNL employees were given pay revision with the maximum of 30% fitment during second pay revision, inspite of existence of affordability clause then too and MTNL making losses consecutively. BSNL had added 40 million subscribers in March 2018 alone, and it was necessary to keep the morale of the employees high in order to achieve early turn around of BSNL. They requested the Minister to ensure that DPE gives positive advice to DoT in response to its letter forwarding BSNL proposal for pay revision. Hon'ble Minister said that he will forward the Memorandum to DPE for examination and necessary action.   View the Memorandum

Since DoT has forwarded BSNL proposal for pay revision to DPE for its advice, we urged him to talk to MoHI&PE regarding this. He assured that he will take up the issue with MoHI&PE and request him to do the needful for early implementation of pay revision of BSNL employees.

In both the occasions, MTNL making losses for several years consecutively and the Government Orders on 2nd PRC stipulating ‘affordability’ clause almost similar to the one recommended by the 3rd PRC were not a bar for MOC/DOT deciding to grant the maximum allowed fitment to MTNL executives....In view of the above, we request you to kindly advise DoT that Hon’ble MOSC is competent to approve pay revision of BSNL Executives w.e.f. 1.1.2017 as proposed by BSNL Board.'   Read More

Meeting with GM (Pers):

GS along with Com. P.C.Rastogi, AGS and Com. Sanjay Vishnoi met GM (Pers) on Friday (6.4.2018) and discussed the following:

(i) Granting upgradation to E6 pay scale for executives working as DGM on adhoc basis:

We told GM(Pers) that this issue is pending from 2016 but till date no action has been taken to issue necessary clarification by pers section. We told GM (Pers) that due to wrong interpretation of an earlier clarification issued by Personnel section on 25.07.20012, not only field units but also BSNL CO is not allowing financial upgradation from E5 to E6 to DGM(Adhoc). We explained that while the clarification issued by BSNL Corporate Office vide letter No.400-66/2011-Pers.I dated 25th July 2012 on applicability of Foot Note-1 under Schedules IA, IB, IC and ID of BSNL MS RR 2009 states that “Any other level executives viz. DGM and above are not eligible for consideration under the EPP as their time bound upgradation to NF grades is clearly enshrined in the BSNL MS RR-2009.” As there is no provision for DGM (Adhoc) in BSNL MS RR, it is to be taken that the term ‘DGM’ in the above clarification is to be taken as Regular DGM. The substantive grade of Adhoc DGM is to be treated as Regular STS and these executives should be given the benefit of upgradation upto E6 scale as provided in the BSNL EPP 2007. GM (Pers) immediately called AGM (Pers-Policy) and asked him about the status of the issue. AGM told him that issue was submitted to MC but till date no decision has taken by the MC. GM (Pers) has given instruction to AGM (Pers-Policy) to submit the issue once again so that clarification can be issued.

(ii) Re-opening of eAPAR window for 2016-17:

We once again requested GM (Pers) for re-opening of eAPAR window for those executives who could not complete their eAPAR for the year 2016-17 due to various reasons. GM (Pers) assured us that necessary action will be taken soon.

(iii) Delay in finalisation of EPP Amendment & RR (Cadre Hierarchy) and Promotion from JTO to SDE and SDE to SDE to DE:

We drew attention of GM (Pers) on this issue and enquired him about the present status of finalisation of EPP Amendment & Recruitment Rules. GM (Pers) said that necessary details, as requested have already been forwarded to DoT and BSNL is waiting for their reply so that further action may be taken. We requested GM (Pers) that as finalisation of EPP A&RR is edelayed necessary action for issue of promotion orders from JTO to SDE and SDE to DE may be taken as per our earlier discussion, since there is lot of frustration among all the executives because of delay in issue of promotion orders. We requested him that the alternate plan may be implemented immediately for holding DPCs. GM (Pers) assured that action will be taken for getting early approval from BSNL Management for the alternate plan. We also drew the attention of GM (Pers) that still some senior executives of list no 3, 4 and 5 are waiting for their promotion. Earlier these executives could not get the promotion due to some reasons but now promotion orders can be issued for these executives because presently there is no dispute in these seniority lists. GM (Pers) spoke to Jt GM (Pers) and asked him to prepare list of executives who are still working as SDE and are in list no. 3, 4 and 5. He assured us necessary will be taken on this soon.
In addition, we also discussed some local issues of BSNL CO like Delay in releasing of look-on orders from SDE to DE, posting of staff in vacant posts and issue of look-on order for DE to DGM posts as number of DGM posts are lying vacant in BSNL CO. GM (Pers) assured us tht he will look in to this and issue necessary orders.
