18.08.2018  CHQ NEWS   Extending the benefit of FR22(1)(a)(1) for the JTOs officiated earlier. The Hon SC dismissed the SLP filed by BSNL. BSNL counsel given his opinion to file a review petition in the Hon SC. However Estt section proposed to implement the judgment without going for further litigations. This will go to CGM(Legal) and then to DIR(HR) for the final decision. 

18.08.2018  CHQ NEWS  Meeting in DPE regarding the DoT clarification on E2 and E3 scales: GM(Estt) and DGM(Estt) will be meeting the DPE officers today, 17.08.2018 to appraise the issue in details. BSNL will be focussing the fact that there is no E1 or E2 scales in BSNL and the pay scales approved by DoT/DPE and implemented in BSNL is only E1A and E2A, they informed. For second PRC, the PBT for the year 2007-08 has to be considered. BSNL recommend E2 and E3 scales, not E1 and E2.

18.08.2018 CHQ NEWS Committee meeting on Group Term Insurance (GTI) with SBI Life: The committee consisting of GM(Estt), GM(Restg), GM(SR) and GM(CA)  held negotiations with SBI Life. SNEA also invited by the committee during the discussion. The rate quoted by SBI Life is:

1) Annual premium of Rs 1.42 per thousand for a coverage of 50 lakhs for the age group of 18 to 50 years. For monthly premium, rate will be slightly high. GST will be separate.

2) The premium will be same even after crossing the age of 50.

3) Minimum 50% of the Executives should join the scheme.

4) The rate of premium will be reviewed after 3 years.

5) No medical is required.

  We are trying to complete the negotiations at the earliest. We asked them to give the draft MoU to study the other terms and conditions. Thereafter a chance will be given to the Executives to opt out of the scheme. More participation in the scheme will give us an opportunity to bargain for lower premium.

This is one of the major issue we are pursuing after the MV.

23.07.2018      The AUAB meeting held on 04.07.2018 taken some important decisions to boost sales, marketing and provisioning of new connections with special focus on FTTH, Leased circuits, Broadband and Mobile connections to increase the revenue.

The important decisions are:

(1) To call upon the employees to observe a movement called BSNL AT YOUR DOORSTEP, till the end of the current financial year, to reach out to the public, for boosting BSNLs sales and revenue generation.

(2) To form separate Core Committees for intensifying the marketing of FTTH, Broadband, Leased lines and mobile connections consisting of employees at Circle and District levels.

(3) To call upon each employee (other than those who are posted in the marketing and Extl plant), to dedicate at least a day in a week, for marketing activities.

SNEA may take lead in forming the Core Committees in coordination with other Union/Assns.


  E2, E3 pay scales replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.01.2007 for JTO/JAO equivalent cadres.

  Com K Sebastin, GS/SNEA and Com V K Tomar, SG/NCOA met Shri Agrim Kaushal, Advisor/ DPE and Director/DPE on 18.07.2018 and held discussions regarding the DoT reference to DPE on E2 and E3 pay scales. Earlier Secretary/DPE directed us to meet the Advisor/DPE in this regard. We explained the background of the issue. BSNL recommended E2 and E3 pay scales replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A, w.e.f 01.01.2007. Ignoring BSNL recommendation, DoT approved E1 and E2 scales by lowering the pay scales from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2.

    DoT is of the view that E1 and E2 are the pay scales applicable for BSNL direct rects from 2001 onwards and E1A and E2A are special dispensation for those got absorbed from DoT into BSNL for facilitating smooth absorption. The decline in revenue and the recurring losses was the other reason for lowering the pay scales.

   BSNL did not implemented the Presidential Order and requested DoT to reconsider the decision and approve E2 and E3 pay scales as recommended by BSNL. It is also informed to DoT that E1 and E2 pay scales are not recommended by BSNL. As per the affordability clause, BSNL made Rs 4451 Crores as PBT during 2007-08 and hence eligible for full pay revision benefits of 2nd PRC.

   We demanded that suitable direction should be given to DoT to review the decision and notify the pay scales based on:

1) BSNL recommendation,

2) considering the affordability clause for the year 2007-08 and

3) not allow DoT to lower the pay scales and downgrade the cadres.

   The representation from SNEA is received by DPE. However the reference from DoT is yet to be received by DPE, it is informed.

Our demand for revised pay scales E2 and E3 will be applicable for all the JTO/JAOs recruited from 2007 onwards, including those recruited in the provisional pay scale of E1 and the future recruits.

28.06.2018  GS Met DIR HR  along with GM Pers regarding the promotion orders. It's informed that the promotion orders can be issued tomorrow only. The assessment details from almost 10 Circles recieved today only and the VC also for list 8 which is taking time. The entire work will be completed today and the approval also. Tomorrow orders for all the streams will be issued together. Other streams orders also pending.

  Comrades we are having no words to appreciate our CHQ team. Since yesterday they are continuously working and today morning at 5.30 AM they started feeding AP data. Many thanks to our District secretaries, COBs, other active comrades and AP circle administration who had extended all possible support in sending the Screening report to BSNL CO Delhi. Whole night our leaders sat with DPC team and still DPC work is going on. Some paper tigers who informed through their website that yesterday evening itself DPC minutes are approved are not seen any where in the BSNL CO New Delhi. Perhaps after releasing the orders they may write " after consistent efforts promotion orders are issued". This is the time to expose those obstacles. Once again thanks a lot to all our comrades for raising to the occasion.

   Special thanks to GM HR AP Cirle and his team for taking keen interest for forwarding screening committee Report to BSNL CO even in late night.

27.06.2018 The Screening Committee report of list no 5,6,7, and SC/ST candidates in list no 8 of SDE to DE/AGM  CPC pertaining to AP circle has been sent to BSNL CO.

22.06.2018 Circle Office issued regular posting orders to PAs .

22.06.2018  On our continuous persuasion today Circle Office issued orders for posting of SDEs  promoted in JTO to SDE SCF  and  all are posted in same SSA .

22.06.2018 JTO to SDE promotion case at Hon CAT, Ernakulam: The case came up for hearing today. Hon CAT declined to stay the promotion order. The arguments on the contempt petition completed and judgment reserved. Sr Counsel engaged by BSNL pleaded the case very well. The OA posted to 29.06.2018.


CHQ Office bearers and CS meeting at New Delhi on 18.06.2018:

  It was a moment of celebration for all as 1) the SNEA demand for CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation is approved by the BSNL Board on 28.05.2018, paving the way for smooth career progression in the future and 2) more than 5,000 JTOs promoted as SDEs within one month period through SCF and LDCE for the vacancy years 2009-10 and 2010-11.

   The meeting decided to demand the implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy on or before 01.07.2018 as per the CWC decisions. Already CPSU cadre Hierarchy delayed by one and half years as the date of implementation changed from 01.01.2017 to a prospective date, any delay in implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy will delay all the future promotions for all.

  Meanwhile in the intervening period, all out efforts will be made to effect promotions in all the streams, ie. SDE to DE, AO to CAO, SDE(C/E) to EE(C/E), SDE(TF) to AGM(TF), JTO(T/C/E/TF)/JAO to SDE(T/C/E/TF)/AO.

   Assn will be giving more focus for settlement of E2 and E3 scales, now pending in DoT and if required will launch organizational actions.

  30% Superannuation benefit to BSNL direct rects: By the formation of pension fund with 5% contribution, now the total contribution reached 25% out of 30%. Further increase in the contribution will be pursued as it is directly linked with the social security.

   Uniform 1st TB Promotion: This is the issue for all the JTO/JAOs recruited from 1993 to 1999 who got the first TBP after 5 or 6 years. Khan Committee recommended for uniform 5 years. However Hyderabad CWC decided to demand TBP after 4 years instead of 5 years. Management was waiting for the finalization of the CPSU Hierarchy. EPP 2007 has to be amended retrospectively, w.e.f 01.10.2004 for implementing Uniform TBP with the approval of BSNL Board and DoT.

   Group Term Insurance (GTI): Competitive quote is expected from LIC, this week. Assn is in touch with LIC in this regard. GTI will be implemented making 3 or 4 age slabs to get the benefit of customarised premium to the Executives of different age groups.

  Filing of Court case for EPF full pension option: The list of Executives recruited directly by BSNL, covered under EPF and opted for the full pension option is to be made available to CHQ by respective CSs within one month. Jt Sec(S) Com Pandurang Nayak and AGS Com Chinamya Sahoo will coordinate with all CSs in this regard.

  The pay parity of 22820 will be pursued to settle the issue by giving additional increments as the demand for settlement as a pay anomaly issue is not agreed by the management.

    Settlement of Rule 8 cases at the time of implementation of CPSU Hierarchy.

18.06.2018 GS writes to Hon Minister: Review of the Presidential Order issued by DoT on 28.03.2017, lowering the pay scales from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2 and approval of BSNL proposal for standard pay scales of E2 and E3, replacing E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.01.2007 as per the assurances given earlier. 

16.06.2018       Congratulations to One and All
JTO(T) to SDE(T) promotion orders issued for 3139 JTOs against 3500 vacancies.

Promotion Orders

SNEA AP congratulate all the promoted JTOs who are the soldiers of SNEA.

 We could issue the promotion orders under severe adverse conditions, malpropaganda of stay on promotions, misinterpretation of the court orders to mislead their supporters etc etc. 

 We are extremely grateful to Smt Sujata T Ray, DIR(HR) who had taken every step to ensure that the promotion orders are issued.

With out confirming officially don't create confusion among the comrades. If at all any official information is there same will be updated
                        There is another attempt by the same group to stall the promotion by filing a fresh case at Ernakulam CAT and stay the DPC. Court didn't stay the promotion but directed to comply the HC judgement before issuing the promotion orders.

We are going ahead. We will update any other development.

Again at 8 PM our P.P.Rao forwarded 13 members list of combined AP and asked to submit the VCs. With the help of local ERP admin, VJA, verified 13 cases and found that 10 cases belong to either expired or VRS/superannuation. One case of Warangal already promoted as SDE. One belongs to some other state and for the last case HRMS No wrongly mentioned.  I have submitted the corrected data to GS and as well to the BSNL corporate office Delhi.

08.06.2018 All the DSs are requested to update the data for Preparatory work for promotion to different grades / streams.(Updation of data in ERP). BSNLCO has made arrangement for updation of data by individual through POP UP Menu in ESS Module. Hence all the executives are requested for updation of their data immediately.

07.06.2018   Hon Kerala HC ( Earnakulam) Judgment on JTO(T) to SDE (T)SCF delivered on 5.6.2018.

The main features of the judgement are:

A) JTOs recruited by BSNL as per JTO RR 2001 cannot claim the vacancy or seniority prior to 2000. It is reserved for the DoT officers. The basic contention of AIGETOA to interpolate seniority in the ratio 1:1 prior to the vacancies of 2000 has been rejected. This was the crux of the issue.

B) The promotion and seniority of JTOs recruited for 1995 to 1999 are intact and the eligibility list prepared by BSNL is correct.

C) The seniority of direct rect JTOs and the supernumerary JTOs recruited for the years 2001 to 2007 has to be revised based on date of appointment and date of promotion.

As such there is no hindrance in giving promotion from the final eligibility list prepared and circulated by BSNL from among JTOs recruited from 1995 to 1999.  

Except the method of fixation of seniority of the JTOs recruited from 2001 onwards, all the pleadings of SNEA and BSNL management accepted by the Hon High Court.

CHQ will take all out efforts to issue the promotion orders as quickly as possible.


06.06.2018 BSNLCO has requested all the Circles to send the data in the proforma for the Preparatory work for promotion to AGM(T)- requirement of data / tabulation sheet of all executives from seniority list no.8
Information required for List no8


Hon High Court of Kerala pronounced the Judgment today (05.06.2018) in the JTO to SDE Promotion case: The salient features are:

 1. JTOs recruited directly by BSNL after 2001 can have no right to claim for the vacancies earmarked for direct rect during the period from 1996-2000 in DoT. No provision of law or any authority which confer them an indefeasible right to claim allotment of rect years as 1996 onwards -----. Certainly from the date of their appointment in BSNL the petitioners are having the right to get their seniority fixed in accordance with JTO RRs 2001 framed by BSNL.

 2. JTO seniority list is to be prepared not on the basis of Trg Centre marks, but based on date of promotion in cases of promotees and date of appointment in case of direct rects.

  3. Final eligibility list is to be prepared within 6 months.

 4. In the meantime BSNL can make provisional promotion against the vacancies equally from among senior most promotes and senior most direct recruites.

 Provision 1 and 4 seems to be contradictory. The judgment copy will be available in 1 or 2 days.

 CHQ will take all necessary steps immediately to get the judgment stayed by the Hon SC in case it is adverse.

 The applicants main prayer was for interpolation of Promotes and direct rects in the ratio 1:1, irrespective of recruitment year. If the prayer was allowed, then 1995 to 1999 rect promotee JTOs will be interpolated with 2001 to 2005 BSNL direct rect JTOs in the ratio 1:1. Similarly 2007 and 2008 BSNL direct rect JTOs will be interpolated with 2014 to 2017 rect promotee JTOs in the ratio 1:1.  


 Uniform Time Bound Functional promotion Policy, 2018 or CPSU Cadre Hierarchy:

     GS alongwith President and AGS met CMD and DIR(HR) on 04.06.2018 and once again thanked them for approving the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal in the Board meeting held on 28.05.2018. GS personally thanked both of them for keeping the commitment given by them to the GS that they are committed to CPSU Hierarchy as mutually agreed upon and will ensure the Board approval without any change. GS reached HQ today, 04.06.18. It was only due to their timely intervention at various occasions, the policy could finalise, overcoming the major issues like bench marks, huge number of Executives at AGM equivalent grades in all streams, relaxation in qualifying service for the Executives in higher scales, date of effect etc.

      GS interacted with the CMD, DIR(HR), DIR(EB), DIR(CM) and all the four external Board directors on 27.05.2018, one day prior to the Board meeting requesting them to approve the proposal in the Board meeting on 28.05.2018.

    This is a direct result of membership verification and the first major HR issue settled by SNEA through negotiations over a period of two years, after becoming the only recognized Executives Association through membership verification. The commitment given by SNEA to all the Executives at the time of MV is getting fulfilled by this and thousands and thousands of Executives will get the time bound functional promotion.

      By this  policy three functional promotions are assured  after  every   Five years  from   Dy Manager (JTO/JAO equivalent) to Manager(SDE/AO equivalent) to Sr Manager(Sr SDE/Sr AO equivalent) to Asst General Manager (AGM/CAO/EE equivalent) without linking with availability of posts. Jt DGM(NF) designation is approved for the AGMs in E5/E6 scales and eligible for DGM promotion. At present JTOs with more than 20 years of service is waiting for the first promotion due to shortage of vacancies. Executives having more than 30-35 years of service got only one promotion.

     It is a historic decision paving the way for smooth functional promotions on time bound basis in the future. Our demand for Uniform Time Bound Functional promotion for all the Executives and the firm resolution to bring parity in promotions among various wings finally got the approval of full BSNL Board. An impression and confusion was created by some sections in the minds of Extl Board directors and DoT directors that the new policy is needed as the promotions are blocked due to litigations and reservation issue. By our strong lobbying among these directors we could overcome this negative propaganda and convince them the need for uniform promotional avenues and parity in promotions for all the cadres as per the terms and conditions for absorption and as per the promotion policies prevailed in other CPSUs. Both DIR(HR) and CMD also strongly pleaded and fought for a Uniform promotion policy for all the Executives as practiced in other CPSUs. Both of them strongly pleaded till the last moment for getting the proposal approved for w.e.f 01.01.2017. However the Govt directors were very much against this, fearing litigations on that ground. If the court case was not filed at CAT EKM against the CPSU Hierarchy and the stay order was not passed on 20.12.2017, the BSNL Board meeting on 21.12.2017 might have approved the proposal w.e.f 01.01.2017 itself as the DoT Board member made objections on retrospective date was not attended that Board meeting. Evenif it is prospective, it could have from 01.01.2018. By filing this case nothing achieved but the promotion of thousands and thousands of Executives delayed by 1 ½ years and their subsequent promotions also. It needs introspection.

    The policy will be notified once the Board meeting minutes are approved. It has to be implemented at the earliest, latest by 01.07.2018 as majority of the Executives will be getting promotion to Manager, Sr Manager, AGM and Jt DGM by this policy only and qualifying service for future promotions are linked with this.

     Bench mark for the promotion in the new policy was one of the major challenges for us. Initially BSNL management was also insisting for atleast 3 very Good and 2 Good for JTO equivalent to SDE equivalent promotion which we could bring down to 5 Good through marathon negotiations. Further our request for following marks instead of grading also accepted by the management which will be further beneficial to the Executives (low grading in an year will be compensated with the better grading for another year).

      Further we had discussions with CMD and DIR(HR) regarding issuing promotion orders as much possible during the intervening period as CPSU Hierarchy will be implemented latest by 01.07.2018. Since the date of implementation of CPSU Hierarchy has become prospective and the major hurdle on promotions, the reservation issue is temporarily overcome by the interim order of Hon Supreme Court, we requested to issue the promotion orders as much possible. JTO to SDE promotion case judgment is expected tomorrow (05.06.18) which will pave the way for JTO to SDE promotion which is badly delayed for more than 6 years due to litigations. Management assured to complete the promotions as much feasible within this short period without giving any scope for future litigations after implementation of CPSU Hierarchy. JTO/JAO to SDE/AO promotions in all the streams are under consideration. On SDE to DE promotion also mgt is making all efforts to complete the DPCs by diverting the MT quota. Since the seniority list is under dispute, entire list no 6&7 has to be promoted in a single order for which more vacancies are required. Seniority will be as per the final order of Hon SC. Mgt is working some way out for this including upgradation of posts. On AO to CAO promotion, catchup rule is the major hurdle. Various options are under consideration. EE(C/E) and AGM(TF) promotions also under consideration. Around 700 DGM(T) vacancies are available. Since 206 final judgment has come, we demanded for regular promotion to DGM(T) posts as per revised seniority.

   We are trying our level best to issue maximum promotion orders in this month followed by promotion through CPSU Hierarchy w.e.f 01.07.2018.
