Status of E2, E3 pay scales: Based on the BSNL reply dated 18.08.2016 on revision of pay scales, PSU section once again processed the BSNL proposal on 05.09.2016. We requested PSU section to focus the reply of BSNL where it replied that replacement of E1A and E2A to E2 and E3 is part of 2nd PRC for which presidential order is not issued by DoT so far. It cannot be referred to DPE or 3rd PRC as suggested by DoT. It has to be decided now itself. It is learned that PSU section opined that there is no objection as the proposal is in line with the DPE guidelines. It is confirmed that the proposal moved from Addl Secretary, DoT to Finance section yesterday morning. The real challenge lies in getting DoT Finance approval as last time DoT Finance only objected the proposal citing financial implications.

United Forum demands the intervention of CMD and DIR(HR) at this crucial stage.

History, status and vision of SNEA on Superannuation benefit to BSNL directly recruited employees:

After pay, pension and terminal benefits are the most important concern for any serving employee. Similarly, for the employees directly recruited by BSNL, Superannuation benefit is the most important issue directly affecting their social security. At the time of formation of BSNL itself, this important issue got covered in Rule 37A. As per Rule 37A, BSNL employees absorbed from DoT are covered by Govt pension under CCS pension Rules 1972 and for the BSNL directly recruited employees, a separate pension fund is to be formed. Instead of forming a separate pension fund, EPF pension scheme introduced for the BSNL directly recruited employees, after discussion with the Unions and Assns. All were demanding for a more secured EPF scheme instead of forming a pension fund.

Initially, the EPF contribution was a fixed amount of Rs 781/- per month for all the BSNL directly recruited JTO/JAOs, with the ceiling of 12% of 6500, irrespective of the emoluments. BSNL continued the same contribution till 2005. SNEA struggled since 2003 for the removal of the ceiling on EPF contribution, demanding full 12% of the emoluments (basic pay plus IDA) as the employer contribution. Finally BSNL management agreed to our demand in May, 2005 and BSNL Board approved the proposal with retrospective effect. The orders issued removing the ceiling on 12th August, 2005 with retrospective effect, making provision for EPF contribution @ 12% of emoluments, w/o ceiling, a big achievement for the BSNL direct recruits. This was the second major issue, SNEA could settle for the BSNL directly recruited JTO/JAOs. First was the E1A pay scale for the direct recruits also at par with the absorbed officers instead of E1 scale.

2nd PRC recommended a separate pension fund, with a contribution, maximum upto 30% of the emoluments towards PF, Pension, Gratuity and Post Retirement Medical Benefits. This demand came into limelight when Forum gone on agitation in 2012 along with other demands of 78.2% IDA and CCL. Till that time management was taken a stand that there is no need for a separate pension fund as EPF scheme is available. During settlement of the agitation, management agreed to constitute a committee to examine it.The committee recommended for a separate pension fund, starting with a contribution of 2% from BSNL.

In 2013-14, then CMD agreed for 4% contribution and in our AIC at Jaipur, present CMD assured 6% contribution, in the presence of almost all the General Secretaries. However there was no conscience among the Unions/Assns even on 6%, sticking to unrealistic demand of 12%. On 19.02.2016 in our absence, management announced 3% in a meeting and gone ahead with that. SNEA strongly protested against this betrayal. We are continuing our struggle to see that this 3% contribution is enhanced to the 6% as assured to SNEA for the time being. We shall continue to struggle for the full 30% Eventhough the 3% proposal is approved by Board and gone to DoT for approval, our strong protest reopened the case and management agreed to review the contribution after recalculation of the medical expenses. Now UF also taken it as a demand in the trade union notice.

The proposal is pursued in DoT for early administrative approval. Association met almost all the senior officers in DoT in this regard. On 19.08.2016, an agenda meeting was held with secretary, DoT in this regard in which Secretary directed the concerned officers to clear the proposal and assured that DoT approval will be communicated to BSNL shortly.

Our future agenda in 3rd PRC is to ensure that superannuation benefit is becoming a mandatory provision, giving no scope to the management to linger on or decide the quantum of contribution.

History, status and vision of SNEA on E2, E3 Pay Scales for JTO, SDE and equivalent Cadres:

Earnest Appeal from SNEA to “All the Stake Holders” to join hands for a conclusive fight on E2, E3 Pay scales in the coming days.

Comrades, today the basic cadres, JTO and SDE equivalent are under threat of demotion. These prestigious cadres got higher pay scales and recognition through continuous struggles for the last three decades, since 1984. The JTO cadre is having the history of struggles and the Association also got transformed after each struggle from erstwhile JETA(I) to JTOA(I) to TEOA(I) to SNEA.

During DoT era, cadre based Associations was the concept.  During 1980s, the pay scales of JE (Jr Engineer and now JTO), was less than that of JAOs and even selection grade PIs. Through continuous struggles for three years from 1984 to 1987, JEs redesignated as JTOs and the pay scale revised from 425-15-700 to 550 - --- (revised scale of 1400-40-2700 to 1640-60-2900). The agitation was so terrific, Union Cabinet forced to decide the pay scales of JTO Cadre in DoT. The Assn also renamed from JETA(I) to JTOA(I).

During V Central Pay commission (CPC), through continuous struggle and interaction with CPC, JTOA(I) (SNEA) achieved further recognition by one more upward revision of pay scales from 5500-150-9000(pre-revised 1640-60-2900) to Rs.6500-200-10500 (pre-revised 2000- --) w.e.from 1st January 1996. As a natural process, upgradation of pay scales of SDE took place from 6500-200-10500 to 7500-250-12000 due to upward revision of pay scale of JTO. Assn also renamed from JTOA(I) to TEOA(I), eligible to enroll all JTOs and officers promoted from JTO cadre.

After formation of BSNL, the Group B Gazetted status given us recognition in the way of absorption as an Executive in BSNL. All other similar cadres absorbed in BSNL as Non Executives. During absorption process, TEOA(SNEA) was the only Assn demanded terms and conditions for absorption in BSNL/MTNL like a) pay scales, b) Promotion policy and c) Fitment formula for an informed choice. We would like to mention here that all other Sister Organizations gave their consent to BSNL Management that they are ready to get absorbed in BSNL with an Adhoc payment of Rs.2000/-. TEOA(SNEA) fought the matter organizationally and legally in Court of Law and compelled BSNL Management to declare Terms and Conditions before Absorption. Management offered E1, E2, --- E6 Pay scales to JTO, SDE, Sr SDE, DE, DGM and SG DGM equivalent grades. TEOA(SNEA) demanded E2 scale for JTO, E3 for SDE, ----E7 scale for SG DGM. TEOA(SNEA) single handedly fought again organizationally in 2002-03 by Nationwide struggle. BSNL management finally agreed for E1A, E2A, --- E6 for JTO, SDE, --- equivalent grades in 2003. Even though management was decided to extend only E1 pay scales for the BSNL recruits, our agitation forced them to extend E1A scales for all, absorbees as well as new BSNL recruits. Here we would like to mention that Pay scale of JTO / SDE is concern of SNEA (Erstwhile known as TEOA, JTOA, and JETA) since decades and by lot of struggle we have achieved results also.

2nd PRC given us another opportunity to demand for E2, E3 --- pay scales which was our original demand since formation of BSNL. A joint committee was formed in 2012 after the joint agitation of United Forum but it was practically defunct.  E1A and E2A are the only two pay scales where the presidential orders are not issued by DoT. All other pay scales, E3 to E9, presidential orders are issued by DoT in 2009 and implemented in BSNL. More importantly these are the entry level pay scales of the basic cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO. Terms of reference of the Joint Committee was limited to replacement of E1A and E2A scales by E2 and E3. SNEA is sincerely trying for E2, E3 keeping the larger interest of the cadre as well as the interest of the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007. Mgt was decided to demote the cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO by reducing the pay scales from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2. The demand of E2 scale from 01.10.2000, cascading effect etc from some sections was suiting the mgt which want to crush our legitimate demand of E2, E3 scales replacing E1A and E2A. When others were not serious on the issue, SNEA alone started organizational actions since February, 2014. During the agitations mgt again referred E1A and E2A scales to DoT and DPE for approval. By our timely intervention, DPE and DoT rejected the proposal in July, 2014. Only SNEA was pursuing this matter with DoT and DPE on a day to day basis to get the proposal rejected. If E1A and E2A scales were approved by DoT/DPE, then there is no scope for E2, E3 pay scales! Again SNEA launched agitation in Sept, 2014 and April-May, 2015 which resulted in the reconstitution of the Joint Committee with a dynamic absorbed officer as its new Chairman. Further CMD directed the Jt Committee to meet regularly atleast once in a fortnight and submit the recommendations in 3 months time. Our vigil and continuous efforts in the Jt Committee resulted in a very positive and sweeping recommendation from the Jt Committee, which recommended replacement of intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A with standard pay scales of E2 and E3 w.e.f 01.01.2007. Unfortunately, after signing the committee recommendation by all the three Assns, there was change in view in some sections. In the name of cascading effect etc they tried their level best, in connivance with the mgt, to derail the issue. We told one and all including Management that E2 to E7 is the demand of SNEA since absorption but E2 and E3 proposal should be separate from E4 to E7 as we are in immediate need of finalization of E2, E3 pay scales before 3rd PRC. Simultaneously the assured five TB promotions between 4 to 6 years, which we achieved in 2002 through sustained struggle, should not be disturbed. Knowing very well that DoT will not agree for a mini wage revision in the name of cascading effect just ahead of 3rd PRC, some sections compelled BSNL mgt to send a mini wage revision proposal to DoT. As assured to the Assn in the meeting with CMD and DIR(HR) on 17.05.2016, the MC approved the pay scale proposal in two parts 1) E1A to E2, E2A to E3 and 2) E3 to E4, --, E6 to E7 and the proposals sent to DoT directly. The second part will be an uphill task as these scales are already approved by DoT in 2009 and the proposal is like another wage revision as all the scales are getting upgraded. It may take more time as it may have to go to Union Cabinet due to MTNL issue, which is not an easy task. Knowing all these facts, our friends tried for a single proposal from E2, E3 to E7.

As we afraid, DoT rejected the combined proposal of E2, ---- E7 citing huge financial implications. DoT didn’t examine the first part of the proposal from E1A to E2 and E2A to E3 in isolation. DoT even suggested to refer the matter to 3rd PRC where as the issue has to be dealt by BSNL and DPE. We will oppose this tooth and nail. Now all the Associations understood what is feasible and realistic and joined together demanding immediate approval of E2, E3 scales without disturbing the five TB promotions already we are having. If the promotions are disturbed, Jt Committee recommendation and implementation of CPSU Hierarchy also will be jeopardised. All are joined together with this single agenda. Strong organizational actions will be starting soon. We are committed to ensure that our basic cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO are not demoted. We are committed to see that our young comrades recruited after 01.01.2007 who are the committed soldiers of SNEA are getting E2, E3 scales with 5 promotions which the seniors are getting now.

The demand of E2, E3 is alive today, only due to the struggle of SNEA since 2014. It will be a natural process to get Sr SDE/Sr AO scale shifting from E3 to E4, then E4 to E5 --- E6 to E7, atleast during 3rd PRC implementation. If E2, E3 not settled now, before 3rd PRC, there is no scope for E2, E3, -- E7 as it will automatically end up in E1+5 increments, E2, E3, --- E6 forever, which management is trying to implement. Before 3rd PRC, atleast E2, E3 should be settled. At any cost, we should not allow demotion to happen. Once E2, E3 pay scales are approved, the demand of pay parity of Rs 22820/- for 2007 and 2008 batch can be strongly pursued.

Comrades, our immediate aim is to get the approval of E2, E3 pay scales replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A. E1A and E2A are the two pay scales, presidential orders are not issued so far. So, it is part of 2nd PRC and should settle before 3rd PRC. Whatever glory our predecessors earned for these cadres through various struggles, we should not allow that to fade. Now all the Assns joined together with this minimum demand. We will keep the five TB promotions intact, so that it will automatically lead to E2, E3, -- E7 in the coming days.

First Circle Executive committee of Rajasthan Circle was held on 02.07.2016 at Jaipur. All the CEC members' participated in the meeting except district secretary Bundi. CHQ President Mr. A.A. Khan, G.S. Mr. K. Sebastin and Mr. Shankar Sharma CHQ vice president attended and addressed the house. before lunch session report of circle secretary has been put-up for discursion and adoption, after that report of district secretaries and Area secretaries have been put-up for discursion and it's adoption.

The main agenda of this CEC was first membership verification among executive associations'. The membership verification among executive associations' was alobretally discussed on reports submitted by SSA secretaries for the concern SSA and it was unanimously decided the at SSA level executive committee meeting will be conducted and special teams will be forward to mobilize the executives for this membership verification up to 31st July 2016. And it was also decided that districts where branches are not in function should be also make functioning within a month. There should not be any SSA without formation of SNEA district branch till 15th of August 2016.

Circle secretary highlighted the achievements of the Rajasthan Circle in last one year time due to continuously persuasion by our association the position of availability of various stores for development and maintenance of telecom network have been improved drastically due to  procurement the stores  and made available to the field units by circle administration. At present there is no any shortage of any material at Rajasthan Circle. All the HR issue which were due have been got settled by continuous persuasion with circle administration.  

In their address, GS and CHQ President explained the activities at CHQ level on BSNL growth related issues, successful implementation of SWAS programme, need for generating maximum revenue and coming out of losses in this financial year 2016-17 in view of 3rd PRC, HR issues like 3rd PRC, replacement of E1A and E2A with E2 and E3 scales, promotions, CPSU Hierarchy, 30% superannuation benefit, E1A/E@A for Civil/Elect/Arch/TF/PA/PS etc notionally from 01.10.2000, officiating pay fixation etc.

Multiplicity of Assns and the vested interests playing havoc with the future of the Executives. None of the important HR issues are getting resolved. Our committed members and the Executives are the victims of this. Few with vested interests and selfish agenda are taking the entire cadre into ransom. Overall cadre interest is totally neglected/missing on various issues, rather petty interests and selfish motives taking leading positions. Recently we are witnessing that instead of making serious efforts to get the Khan Committee recommendations which will benefit the entire cadre by upgrading the pay scales from E1A to E2 and E2A to E3 for the entry /basic cadres, will give better pay for the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007, will give functional promotions instead of financial upgradations to thousands and thousands of Executives after every five years who are waiting for promotions for years together, the anomaly in 1st TBP for thousands of Executives are getting resolved, the Assns made the recommendations in October, 2015 are not allowing the management to implement the same recommendations now. More challenging job will be the 3rd PRC. We struggled under NCOA and got the 3rd PRC constituted. More vigourous struggles are required in the future for the delinking of pay revision from profitability by amending the terms of reference and making pension revision also part of the terms of reference. Simultaneously we have to work for making the company profitable and ofcourse out of the red zone in this year itself. A strong Executive Association with thumbing majority is the need of the hour. To end this deadlock situation, membership verification is the only solution. We should start strenuously working on coming out with flying colours and with thumbs up majority from the ensuing membership verification. It will surely be a litmus test for our organizational capacity and our commitment and determination to face successfully challenges howsoever formidable they are. That is our history and we have to repeat history with impeccable precision. Our unity, commitment and organizational alertness and preparedness on these issues will drive us to the destination.

For the convenience of the Executives, maximum polling booths are to be allotted ensuring atleast one polling booth per division.

SNEA is in the forefront of all struggles to protect the interest of BSNL and its revival. Unbundling of copper cable, ADC, disinvestment, 45.5 M GSM tender cancellation, BWA spectrum refund, ITS absorption issue, 3G roaming, tenders and procurement, expansion of network, MTNL and BSNL merger, Tower subsidiary, pension contribution, 78.2% IDA, filling the posts of CMD and Directors, pension revision etc etc are some of the major contributions.

Similarly SNEA, through continuous struggle during last three decades, uplifted the cadres especially the basic cadre of JTO and to protect the interest of Executives as a whole. The pay scales got revised threes time in 1986, in 1996 and in 2002 at the time of absorption, all through struggles. In 2002, when all other Assns agreed for absorption in BSNL without specifying the terms and condition for absorption, just for an adhoc payment of Rs 2000/, SNEA  alone struggled against that. That struggle resulted in the finalizations  of terms and condition for absorption, ie. a) pay scales of E1A, E2A, E3, E4, E5, E6, b) five TB promotions between 4-6 years upto SG JAG (in DoT only one TBP available after 12 years) and c) Point to point fixation in the new pay scales. From 2003 to 2005, SNEA struggled for making the EPF contribution @12% of the emoluments, without the ceiling on Rs 6500/-. BSNL was making EPF contribution of a fixed amount of Rs 780/- ever month till 2005 (@12% of Rs 6500/-, the upper ceiling). Finally BSNL agreed and orders issued in August, 2005, with retrospective effect from 01.10.2000. Another breakthrough was the EPP order in 2007, BSNL MS RR in 2009, partially implementing the agreement reached in 2002 during agitation. Present struggle and focus is on the implementation of E2, E3 scales for the basic cadres of JTO/JAO, SDE/AO etc and CPSU cadre hierarchy as assured to us in 2002. On both issues we are struggling since 2002.

The most important task ahead for SNEA is the constitution of 3rd PRC and its implementation. SNEA started the struggle in the platform of NCOA and launched series of agitation programmes since November, 2015 demanding 3rd PRC constitution. Finally 3rd PRC constituted on 09.06.2016. It is our responsibility to ensure that 3rd PRC is fully implemented in BSNL. For this we have to struggle to delink the profitability from PRC implementation. Simultaneously we have to ensure that pension revision also becoming part of 3rd PRC. These are the major challenges before us.

The biggest challenge before us is to get the standard pay scales of E2 and E3 in replacement of E1A and E2A, for the entry level cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO implemented immediately as 3rd PRC is constituted. Otherwise the pay revision for the entire BSNL Executives will be jeopardised, simply due to this one reason alone. Keeping the future of JTO/JAOs recruited after 2007 and the 3rd PRC in mind, SNEA for the last few years, struggling to get the standard pay scales of E2, E3 implemented in BSNL replacing E1A and E2A. The initial proposal of E1A and E2A got rejected by DoT and DPE due to the efforts of SNEA in July, 2014. We met the officers in DoT and DPE including the Secretary/DPE in this regard. The agitation in April/May, 2015 by SNEA, resulted in the reconstitution of the Joint Committee. SNEA was behind all these developments and finally Jt Committee come out with sweeping recommendations which will change the pay scales and promotional avenues of the Executives in BSNL.

It is the sole responsibility of SNEA to get the Khan committee recommendations implemented in true spirit, without dilution, which are in the larger interest of the cadre. Lot of negative forces are working to undermine the Khan Committee recommendations. Strategically we delinked E2, E3 from E4, --- E7 upgradation as E4, --- E7 upgradation is equivalent to another mini wage revision and DoT may take longer time to decided on that. Due to Union Cabinet decision on MTNL pay scales, it may have to go to the cabinet itself. Others deliberately taken up this issue to derail E2, E3 and to deny the benefits to 2007 and 2008 JTOs and JTO/JAOs recruited after that. SNEA demanding E2, E3 scales with five existing promotions, each promotion after every 5 years, some are struggling to see that the promotions are reduced from five to four by abolishing SDE or Sr SDE grades. They want to create confusion in the mgt, make anomalies and recoveries and anarchy in the company. The ultimate aim is to dump Khan Committee recommendations (inspite of being part of that) as it is formed due to singular efforts of SNEA. If SDE or Sr SDE grade is abolished, the Khan committee recommendations becomes redundant and CPSU cadre Hierarchy and 1st TBP after 4-5 years will not be implemented by the management. When they questioned Khan Committee recommendations, even mgt started talking about another Committee. New Committee means another 3 to 4 years!

Sensing the danger of dumping the Khan Committee recommendations by the management, SNEA compelled to start the agitation. Sensing the urgency of the situation, Mgt started serious discussions with the Assn on various issues on 11.05.16 followed by 17.05.16. After thorough discussions with CMD, DIR(HR) and whole HR team, some concrete decisions are taken to settle all the important HR issues in a time bound manner. Our one day Dharna protected the Khan Committee recommendations. Otherwise, the selfish motives and petty interests would have buried the recommendations by this time and mgt also would have happily gone ahead with E1+5 increments, E2, E3, -- E6 scales, no CPSU Hierarchy, no 1st TBP etc etc. Populism and playing to the gallery has never worked in trade union struggles. Holding on to hard ground realities has always yielded tangible and everlasting results. It is election time, we have to be very careful about such populistic demands from various sections and should not fall into their trap. It has seen in regularisation of Offtg JTOs(from 2000), implementation of 78.2% IDA fitment(with arrears), 30% superannuation benefit (nothing less than 12%), E2/E3 from 01.10.2000 etc etc.

In view of the 3rd PRC and for the benefit of the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007, it is  agreed to move proposals in two parts on pay scales, one as per the Khan Committee recommendations on standard pay scales of E2, E3 replacing E1A and E2A with necessary changes in EPP protecting five TBP, after every five years as recommended by the Committee. The second proposal will cover the cascading factor, upgradation of scales upto E7. The proposal is approved by the MC on 01.06.2016 and send to DoT on 06.06.2016 itself for administrative approval. Getting DoT approval will be a tough job, we have to struggle a lot for that. The demand for 22820/ for the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 are to be pursued after the implementation of E2, E3, --- pay scales with the BSNL mgt.

CPSU Hierarchy process is fast tracked. Our single agenda is to get Khan Committee recommendations implemented without any dilution. If that is ensured, a fresh JTO after 5 years of service will become SDE(now 15 to 20 years), an SDE after 5 years of service will become Sr SDE (total 10 years) and Sr SDE after 5 years will become AGM (total 15 years, now 30 to 35 years). While implementation, mgt assured that our demand 1) as a onetime measure, promotion to SDE, Sr SDE and DE grades without DPC for the Executives in higher scales with sufficient service, 2) address all seniority related issues like LDCE seniority, promotion quota seniority, Direct/Dept rect, Qualifying/non-qualifying etc, 3) change of designations to Asst Manager, Dy Manager, Manager, Asst General Manager, 4) decentralization of DPCs to Circles, 5) uniform date of promotion to end anomalies etc will be considered positively.

1st TBP after 4 to 5 years instead of 4 to 6 w.e.f 01.10.2000 is the demand of SNEA alone and it become a new item in the reconstituted Jt Committee. It was a major anomaly for the 1993, 1994, 1995 -- etc batches who got first TBP in 6 years whereas their seniors as well as juniors got it in 4 to 5 years. The recommendation will be processed immediately after CPSU, mgt assured. The EPP will be amended for that purpose, giving 1st TBP in 2005 instead of 2006.

Officiating pay fixation, protection of pay -- withdrawal of wrong clarifications by BSNL: Thousands of JTOs, JAOs, SDEs, AOs officiated in higher post during DoT and BSNL period prior to the clarification are facing reduction in pay by one or two increments and recovery of lakhs of rupees due to EPP clarification dated 19.02.2010 and 30.05.2007. After lot of deliberations, now mgt assured that necessary steps will be taken to correct both the clarifications. The process is already on as assured to us. This is one of the major achievements due to the agitation.

30% superannuation benefits. At our Jaipur AIC, CMD assured 6% contribution to begin with. Earlier in 2014, the CMD assured 4%. But there was no conscience as some are insisting for 12%. Mgt later on made a proposal of 3% in a meeting held on 19.02.16 in which SNEA was not present. Since much opposition was not there from the participants like the demand of full 12% in the meeting, mgt gone ahead with the proposal. The proposal of 3% is now approved by BSNL Board. On our strong protest mgt decided to review the contribution, CMD and DIR(HR) assured us. 4% and 6% proposals not agreed demanding full 12% but finally compromised for 3% in our absence without any protest!.

Promotions in various cadres: All the promotions JTO to SDE, SDE to DE, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, SDE to EE are stayed by various courts. To expedite the JTO to SDE case at Ernakulum, as per our request, BSNL engaged senior lawyer from Hon Supreme Court. We are trying for early hearing of the case. The stay on declaration of LDCE result was vacated by the CAT, Chandigargh and after Assn intervention, the results declared. However stay continuing on promotion. Seniority cum fitness and LDCE promotions are progressing parallel for the vacancies upto 2013-14. The LDCE also notified upto 2013-14, exams will be held yearwise as per the notified schedule. LDCE case along with the case on SDE to DE promotion is listed for 08.07.2016. SDE to DE promotions also, APARs kept ready. JAO to AO promotion and CAO promotion is listed for 12.07.2016. Assn pursuing all the cases in different courts. At all level, Assn is for the SDE RR provisions where vacancy yearwise promotions are envisaged. Unfortunately Hon SC didn’t accepted this fact eventhough BSNL filed the SLPs along with affected parties. We will maintain our stand that date of joining cannot be the criteria to decide the seniority in any cadre, JTO, JAO, SDE, DE  etc. The seniority of the remaining SDEs from list 9 onwards will be finalised as per the latest DoPT OM dated 04.03.2014 in which seniority will be assigned as per vacancy year, according to the quota, reiterating the earlier position(DoPT withdrawn the clarification on date of joining). Due to the multiplicity of the litigation, the only viable alternative is CPSU Hierarchy.

Notional pay of E1A and E2A for Civil/Elect/Arch/TF/PA/PS cadres w.e.f 01.10.2000: Our Kanyakumari AIC decided to work for uniform promotion policy and uniform pay scales for all the Executives, irrespective of wings. On TB promotions, we could achieve it through EPP. On functional promotion, it will be achieved through CPSU hierarchy. On pay scales, still we are struggling. But we could make a breakthrough on 17.05.2016 when SNEA got an assurance from CMD that this anomaly will be resolved. This is another achievement of our recent agitation.

The meeting decided to work unitedly to

Date 28.05.2016

Meeting with Chief General Manager Rajasthan

Circle President Mr. V.S. Kichar and C.S. met CGMT Rajasthan to discuss the points as per letter Dated 23-05-2016

We have discussed our proposals for change of posting stations on transfer as per request of executives. CGMT told that posting on transfers has been done as per load factor of the concern SSA and Geographical area of the SSA. so any change in order will further create imbalance  in the man power of SSA that will effect the maintenance of  unpopular  SSAs like Barmer, Jhalawar, Jaisalmer, SGR and Sirohi, so association should not insist and compel the administration for this change of posting station on transfer.

We have requested for consideration of request transfer of Mr. B.L. Gurawaria SDE, from Sirohi to Jaipur on completion of two year stay at sirohi, though officer has given his undertaking that he will not ask any break in stay for enter circle transfer due to working at soft tenure station. CGMT agreed that he will look in to the case and do needful as early as possible.

We have requested for consideration of request transfer of Mr. Jile Singh JTO, from Sikar to Jaipur as immunity on the ground of disable child, CGMT agreed to look in to the matter sympathetically and consider the request as early as possible.

We have requested that refusal for accepting promotion by the officer on promotion should be counted from the date of issuing of promotion order not from the date of acceptance of  refusal by competent authority, CGMT told that rule does not permit in this matter. He can arrange to accept the refusal from the date of receipt of refusal at circle office from SSA. It is hardly  a gap of one week in submission of refusal by officer to SSA and receiving the same at circle office. where is the delay of three to four months.

We have also requested for reduction of debarring period for consideration for promotion of refusal from on year to six months only, though the looking after arrangement being made for six months only. CGMT told that as per demand of both the associations we have already seek the  clarification from corporate office but circle administration have not received any reply from corporate office in this matter till date. This is a policy matter so decision can not be taken at circle level.

We have also discussed regarding procurement of testing equipments i.e. OTDR and Power meters for maintenance of transmission network of the circle, CGMT told that procurement is under process but manufacturing companies and suppliers are not responding for supplying of Power meters.

We have discussed the shortage of staff in NTR Circle at various stations in Rajasthan. CGMT told that if association provide the feed back for willing persons then circle administration is ready to post them in NTR Circle at suggested stations.
