CPSU Proposal approved by the MC
Congratulations to One and AllDear Comrades

Kudos to CHQ under the great leader ship of beloved GS Com. K Sebastin . We are very much proud to be the members of SNEA and congratulations to all the comrades.

Many congratulations to the leadership at CHQ, Circle and SSA level. Once again congratulations to all the executives and many thanks to the CHQ for this historic achievement.
J Umamahesh CS SNEA AP.
Broad agreement reached between the Recognised Association SNEA and BSNL Management on Uniform Time Bound Functional Promotion (CPSU Cadre Hierarchy) proposal.
I. It will be a Uniform Time Bound Functional Promotion policy for all the Executives in different cadres and in different wings upto AGM grade. This will end the disparity in promotions between various cadres in different wings and provides uniform promotional avenues to all the Executives in different wings.
II. New designations will be as follows:
JTO /JAO equivalent grade - Deputy Manager
SDE/AO equivalent grade - Manager
Sr SDE /Sr.AO equivalent grade - Sr. Manager
AGM /CAO/EE/DE equivalent grade -Asst General Manager
III. Date of implementation: 01.01.2017. As a onetime measure, all the existing Executives in higher scales and completed the qualifying service will be placed in higher grades on 01.01.2017 itself without conducting fresh DPC.
IV. Subsequent review: 1st Jan/1st July, 2018 onwards, twice in a year.
V. Existing Executives in higher scales will be placed in higher grades without conducting fresh DPC.
VI. Promotion upto AGM grade will be on Rect year/ vacancy year basis.
VII. Functional Promotion upto AGM grade will be on Time Bound basis as under:
a) Deputy Manager (JTO/JAO) to Manager (SDE/AO) --- 5 years.
b) Manager (SDE/AO) to Sr Manager (Sr SDE/Sr AO) --- 5 years.
c) Sr Manager (Sr SDE/Sr AO) to AGM (DE/CAO/EE) --- 5 years.
d) Since Sr Manager (Sr SDE) grade is newly introduced as a functional grade, time bound promotion to AGM grade will be after 5 years of service in Sr Manager (Sr SDE/Sr AO) grade or 12 years combined service in SDE & Sr SDE equivalent grades, whichever is less. e) If sufficient number of eligible Executives is not available for AGM/CAO promotion, Adhoc promotions will be given by relaxing the qualifying service.
VIII. Time Bound upgradations to higher scales will continue for the Executives already working in higher scales, on completion of qualifying service in the lower scale.
IX. Relaxation in qualifying service for the Executives in higher scales:
a) Manager (SDE/AO) in E3 scale will be considered for promotion to Sr Manager Grade after 3 years of service in Manager Grade. All will get AGM promotion in 8 years.
b) Dy Manager (JTO/JAO) in E4 scale will be considered for promotion to Sr Manager Grade after 3 years of service in Manager Grade. All will get AGM promotion in 8 years.
c) Dy Manager (JTO/JAO) in E3 scale will be considered for promotion to Sr Manager Grade after 4 years of service in Manager Grade. All will get AGM promotion in 9 years.
X. One year relaxation for the Dy Managers (JTO/JAO) recruited for the same rect year.
XI. Present LDCE passed and corresponding vacancy year Seniority Quota Executives will be enbloc senior to other JTOs. They will be treated as SDE from 01.01.2017 itself.
On CPSU Hierarchy, the formal discussions are taken place with the recognized Assns only, as per the provisions of Recognition Rules. SNEA only have the right for negotiation/discussion with the management on such policy matters. On large number of issues, agreement reached between both sides. But on some issues, management did not fully agree to the demands, citing administrative constraints.
This will be the major breakthrough for all the Executives and a direct result of the membership verification and becoming recognized Association. During verification campaign, it was assured by SNEA that it will try to get promotions within 3 months, ie. by March, 2017. By this new policy, promotions will be effected from January, 2017 itself, just one month after the MV.
AIGETOA also contributed to frame the proposal by valid suggestions and we really appreciate their positive and pragmatic approach to end the deadlock situation in promotions.
Due to various reasons Assn could not update the latest developments and this major breakthrough to our activists at various levels for the last two months when proposal was under finalization.
SNEA AP extends best wishes for all comrades who retired on 31-10-2017 on superannuation, for a happy and peaceful retired life. Comrade you are starting a new journey and exceptional chapter of your life. May your days be filled with elation and triumph. We thank you for your dedication & congratulate you on your retirement.

Mobilise all Eexecutives and Non Executives of BSNL and make it grand success.
Developments of E2, E3 pay scales:
It is learnt that DoT has sent a very negative note to the Hon MoSC office, fully justifying the Presidential order issued by DoT on 28.03.2017, lowering the pay scales from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2. Minister office called the file and sought the status of the case from DoT due to the continuous efforts of JF. AS(T)/JS(T) prepared the note themselves and submitted it to MoSC office directly. They had cited mainly affordability clause, huge expenditure, wrongly quoted BSNL proposal etc to justify it. DoT want to inform BSNL to implement the PO, the note says.
Comrades JF is trying to convince the Minister through various sources, through CMD and DIR(HR) and through political sources. However we should be at the highest level of organizational preparedness. The issue reached a crucial stage now.
All our SSA/Branch Secretaries should mobilise the Joint Forum to start the organizational programmes on 30.10.2017. In case of urgency, we should be fully prepared to start the agitations even prior to 30.10.2017.
