Issue of Absorption of ITS Group A officers:
The cabinet, yesterday, is reported
to have considered and approved the DoT Note based on the
recommendations of the Group of Ministers. In the face of their demand
of absorption from a prospective date having been rejected by the GoM, last
minute efforts, by a section to get atleast pro-rata pension from a
prospective date, also have failed. Now the process for absorption of
ITS Group A officers has to start forthwith.

24.07.2008: A+ categorisation of BSNL by the 2nd Pay Revision
committee for CPSEs - CLAIMS & THE FACTS: 'The
moment the 2nd Pay Revision Committee for CPSEs in its
recommendations submitted to the Government categorized the CPSEs into five
categories i.e A+, A, B, C and D in place of existing categorization in four
categories i.e A, B, C and D and incidentally BSNL has got a place in
category A+ having passed through the parameters fixed by the Pay Revision
Committee of its own for deciding the categorization for the CPSEs, the other
two Executives’ Associations in BSNL started making tall claims that it is
because of them that the BSNL has been classified as A+.' These claims
are far from the facts.

writes to Minister of Communications on ITI merger:'At
present, BSNL itself is fighting a grim battle for its survival. Its profit
margin has dipped considerably. The employees are having sleepless nights
about their future. In these circumstances, BSNL cannot afford to tag with a
sinking boat. Therefore, the proposal for merger of M/S ITI Limited with
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has to be discarded right now.' 'However,
any proposal for treating M/S ITI Limited as a subsidiary to BSNL or for
having a joint venture between M/s ITI Ltd and BSNL could be considered with
no direct or indirect liability on BSNL.'

We learn with distress that there has been an
attempt to forcibly enter and occupy TESA Bhawan at Noida on 12.07.2008 by
some people who had been at Delhi to attend a Circle Secretaries' meeting of
another Association. Never before, such an atrocious event has been
heard of, in the history of trade unions in Telecom and it is really shocking to know
that those who lead Executives' association have stooped so much low. Such
acts are to be condemned by all. Intolerance and violence are symptoms
of weak minds and have always been rejected by masses. We only hope that
this madness ends here. For more details visit
14.07.2008: TTA comrades through
out the country are worried about the implications of the Punjab/Haryana
High Court ordering restoration of JTO posts diverted from 50% outside quota to
35% departmental qualifying quota. CHQ has already taken up the issue
with BSNL administration. TTA comrades who are interested to know the
details may contact Com.R.R.Balasubramanian, ACS, Tamilnadu Circle in his

lot of queries are being received by us regarding revision of seniority list of the TES Group B Officers in the same principle
that was followed for fixation of seniority of S/Shri Brij Mohan and P N
Lal. Following orders in a contempt petition in Supreme Court, DoT revised seniority of
54 SDEs (45 SDEs who were petitioners in the Contempt Petition in Supreme
Court and another 9 in a petition in HP High Court) under the same principle
and some of these 54 SDEs have been recently promoted as DE Adhoc. DoT was
earlier stated to have been seeking the advice of Ministry of Law whether the
seniority of all SDEs similarly placed is also to be revised. It is now learnt
that DoT has finally decided that seniority of all
similarly placed SDEs cannot be revised as they were not applicants in the
above petitions, implying that the benefit of revision of the seniority will
be available only to those who obtain similar orders from the court.
of absorption of ITS Group A:
On the basis of the recommendations
of the Group of Ministers, DoT has prepared and sent a fresh note for
consideration by the Cabinet. The Cabinet is yet to discuss the issue.

of the proposal for merger of BSNL and MTNL - A wrong
move at wrong moment:
Two Associations of BSNL Executives and another two in MTNL have suddenly
revived an old issue …………It is really a matter of serious concern when the
sword of disinvestment of BSNL’s stake is still in the neck why then this move
for merger of BSNL and MTNL is revived ? Is it the result of any internal
understanding with the Management ?
