GS letter to Hon MoSC

   Hon Ernakulam High Court Verdict on EPF Full Pension Case will Pave way for All Beneficiaries to get a chance of giving New Options for full pension. Highlight is that Calculation of Pension Basic on the Basis of Last 60 months of Service also cancelled and last 12 months average restored. The Hon. High Court has announced the verdict on EPF Full Pension Case given by a Large Number of Employees from different PSUs and other Sectors. In the verdict, Hon. High Court of Kerala Cancelled the anti employee clauses like
1) Cut Off Date for exercising Full Pension option,
2) calculation of Pension Basic on the Basis of Last 60 Months and
3) service charge of 1.6% where the employees are paying additional contribution.

  Our Co-Members in NCOA from different CPSUs were conducting this case and as per their advises we were waiting for this order from Hon. High Court before going for any case to Supreme Court or any other Courts in India. We are now waiting for the Modified direction from EPFO. If it is limited to the parties of the Petitions for which the Judgement was pronounced, then we will also move to Court as declared by CHQ in line with this favorable order from Hon High Court of Kerala. SNEA CHQ has already decided in the Bhubaneswar CWC to file the Petition with all interested beneficiaries as parties for Full Pension Option. So all Members are advised to wait for some more time for the direction from CHQ for further movement.

  Meanwhile, We have noticed that very massive Fund Collections were made by Leaders of some Other Association for Filing the Case for EPF Full Pension by creating a Panic Situation among all BSNL DR Executives that opportunity for exercising Full Pension Option will be given only for those who can file a petition before a Particular Date. Since SNEA is fully aware of the developments through our NCOA Leaders from other PSUs having EPF Pension Option issues for both Retired and Serving Employees, We were advising the Members of SNEA to stay calm for further direction from High Court of Kerala. Here once again, it is informing that, SNEA CHQ will initiate the Case with the Legal Fund if any Directions issued against the Employees from EPFO on the basis of this Order from Hon High Court of Kerala and if any further requirement from the members for our Legal Fight, it will be informed to all Members through Association Platforms. Further the judgement not addressed the issue of exempted and non-exempted trust but it is not applicable for BSNL.

13.10.2018   Group Term Insurance(GTI): The final premium quote received from LIC is Rs 1.6 per thousand rupees for a coverage of 50 lakhs for the age group upto 50 years. The rate will be reviewed after 3 years. The same slab will continue till they attain 60 years. The Committee will be submitting its report to DIR(HR) in this regard shortly. GS met GM(Trg) who coordinates the GTI scheme and held discussions today and requested to expedite the proposal. GS asked simultaneously to work out for an option if any Executive wants to opt out of the scheme.
13.10.2018 Fund collection for the All India Conference: The Bhubaneswar CWC meeting decided to collect an amount of Rs 200/ per member for meeting the huge expenditure towards AIC. In that Rs 100/- will be for the CHQ expenditure and Rs 50/- each will be for the SSA and Circle for meeting their huge expenditure towards AIC.

   Meeting with Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD/BSNL on 04.10.2018: GS met CMD/BSNL and held discussion on the proposal of E2/E3 scales and its approval by DoT. GS informed CMD that the reply given by DPE is processed by DoT and the file is with Secretary/DoT for further directions. GS requested immediate intervention of CMD by personally taking up the matter with Secretary. CMD assured to discuss with Secretary once she returns to the office on 14.10.2018. Meanwhile a DO letter regarding early approval of E2/E3 pay scales will be sent from CMD, it is assured.  

   Meeting with Shri Keshav Rao, GM(Pers) on 04.10.2018: GS, President, AGS and Jt sec met GM(Pers) and held discussion on 1) resubmitting the Committee report on CPSU Hierarchy, 2) JTO to SDE promotion, 3) Soft tenure break and 4) promotion for the missing cases.

1) On the Committee report, it is informed that it may take few more days as some feedback is yet to get from some section.

2) On JTO to SDE promotion, we held detailed discussion based on our letter dated 17.09.2018. Since Hon HC permitted to give promotions even before finalization of AIEL, all possibility is to be explored for the promotions from the remaining JTOs, to the extent possible. The AIEL is finalized for the DoT rect upto 1999, DoT rect and BSNL rect are segregated by Hon HC and promotion orders are issued. Remaining JTOs can be promoted on interim measure. The promotion can be regularized after finalization of AIEL, we suggested. Management is trying to establish that there is no contempt and of opined that after giving much awaited promotions, management is facing contempt and other court cases which is not a positive sign. Finally GM(P) assured to examine the matter and continue the discussions next week.

3) Soft tenure break: The matter will be discussed with DIR(HR) for approval.

4) Promotion for the missing cases: Due to the contempt cases, further promotions are not processing, GM(P) informed. We explained that the pending cases are nothing to do with the contempt cases and they are very seniors, their juniors are already promoted. Finally GM(P) assured to discuss this with DIR(HR) and do the needful.

   Meeting with Shri Sourabh Tyagi, Sr GM(Estt) on 04.10.2018: GS met Sr GM(Estt) and held discussion on 1) sending a DO letter regarding early approval of E2/E3 pay scales and 2) Board approval for E1/E2A pay scales notionally from 01.10.2000 for the Civil/Electrical/TF/Arch/PA/Ps etc and 3) Board approval for the AD(OL) scale:

    Based on the discussions held earlier with CMD, DIR(HR) and GM(Estt), a draft DO letter is prepared, GM(Estt) informed.

    On approval of E1A/E2A scales from 01.10.2000, the possibility of settling the issue without altering the Presidential order is under examination. Whether it can be shifted to another date to overcome the objections of DOT, it is under examination.

   The AD(OL) pay scale proposal is an agenda in todays Board meeting and in all probability, it will be approved, informed GM(Estt).

   GS writes to CMD/BSNL: Outsourcing of O&M activities of passive infra of Non-collocated BTS sites – the rates needed to be revisited again in view of 1) huge investment BSNL already made in the last few years, 2) the exorbitantly higher rates and 3) revenue from the BTSs.
