25.08.2016: CHQ NEWS:

Draft proposal on CPSU Hierarchy upto AGM Grade.

Our major demands and suggestions are accepted by the management to great extent:

a) Time Bound Functional promotion to SDE/AO, Sr SDE/Sr AO and AGM/CAO after completion of 5 years of service.

b) Promotions delinked from seniority.

c) Promotions delinked from availability of posts, fully upto Sr SDE/Sr AO grade.

SNEA suggestions accepted by the management:

1) First promotion immediately on implementation itself, without DPC, for the Executives working in higher scales. Example: JTO in E2A scale. Immediately he will be promoted as SDE w/o DPC. This will give great relief to thousands and thousands of JTOs, SDEs, JAOs and AOs waiting for promotions for years together.

2) For the Executives working in two or more higher scales, two years relaxation in the qualifying service for the second promotion. Example: A JTO in E3 scale. Immediately he will be promoted as SDE w/o DPC and he will be promoted as Sr SDE after 3 years of service as SDE (relaxation of 2 years).

3) Change of designation for each grade.

4) Uniform date of promotion, 1st January or 1st July. Similarly uniform date of increment, 1st January or 1st July. In future, anomalies will not be there.

5) DPCs decentralised to respective Circles.

Challenges in the draft CPSU proposal, to be addressed in totality:

a) Time Bound Functional promotion to AGM grade for the existing SDE/AOs having 10 years of combined service as SDE/Sr SDE or AO/Sr AO without linking with the availability of posts. As and when remaining SDE/AOs completes 10 years, promotion to AGM grade.

b) To get the CPSU Hierarchy upto AGM grade as recommended by the Khan Committee, processed first, separately, w/o linking with the promotions to higher grades. Promotions to higher grades are to be dealt separately, later.

c) Increasing the number of DGM posts to atleast 2000.

d)After implementation of CPSU Hierarchy upto AGM, processing the promotions from DGM onwards with necessary changes.

These outstanding issues are to be settled. UF comprising of SNEA, AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA is committed to that and our struggles will lead to its resolution.

23.08.2016: As per the call given by United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations LUNCH HOUR DEMONSTRATIONS were conducted successfully throughout AP Circle. SNEA AP congratulates all the executives who have participated in the lunch hour demo.

04.08.2016: Presentation before 3rd PRC:

NCOA representing more than 1.6 lakh Executives of 264 CPSUs given a detailed presentation before the 3rd Pay Revision Committee. On 03.08.2016 discussions held in the Committee room for about 01 hr 15 mts eventhough it was an introductory meeting. When NCOA sought an appointment for presentation, Chairman immediately given permission and called us for discussion. Chairman Justice Satish Chandra (Retd) & Members, Prof Manoj Panda, Sri Shailendra Pal Singh and Sri Madhukar Gupta, Sec/DPE were present. After detailed discussion, Chairman directed us to give a detailed presentation on all the issues before the full 3rd Pay Revision Committee on 04.08.2016 at 3 pm.

On 04.08.2016, NCOA given an excellent presentation on various demands. As suggested by the PRC members, the presentation was made with full justification of the demands with possible solutions also. Eventhough the allotted time was only 20 minutes, the presentation and discussion took more than one hour. In addition to the Chairman and all PRC members, officers from SCOPE also were present in the meeting. All the issues discussed in detail. Chairman and PRC members had lot of queries and NCOA could clarify all the points to their satisfaction.

These are the important issues deliberated in the meeting with PRC:

1) PRC should be implemented for all the CPSUs without linking with affordability. Our main focus was on this important aspect. Employees having limited role in loss /profit of the company. They are depending on Govt/company policies, market conditions and other external factors. Balance sheet is prepared on the basis of several factors like depreciation. We explained with the example of BSNL where the operational profit is about 2000 Cr but due to huge depreciation value, balance sheet still shows losses. The Operating profit concept very much appreciated by the PRC. We could convince PRC that profit/loss alone cannot be the criteria for revision of Pay.

  Periodicity. It should be 5 years, co-terminus with Non executives.

  Pay Scales: New pay scales may be arrived with IDA as on Jan 2017 merged with basic Pay with fitment of 30% on basic Pay plus DA and rounded off to nearest 100. All pay scales should be open ended to address stagnation as recommended by 2nd PRC and 7th CPC.

Fitment: Uniform fitment of 30%.

  Dearness Allowance: Present System of 100% neutralisation on quarterly basis, based on AICPI shall be followed.

  Annual increment shall be 4%. A uniform date of increment may be followed for all employees in the CPSU. Notional Increment on promotion shall be awarded and fixed in the next higher stage.

  House Rent Allowance:3) Automatic pension revision for the BSNL/MTNL pensioners The present Rate of HRA shall be continued

HRA shall be calculated based on Pay (Basic Pay plus DA) so that it is indexed

  Perks and Allowances shall be calculated based on emoluments(Basic pay plus DA). Present system of Cafeteria approach shall continue. The Ceiling on Perks and Allowances may be fixed as 50% of Pay (Basic plus DA). Bell Curve should be abolished as it is unscientific. Accenture, KPMG, IBM, Infosys, Wipro, TCS, CISCO, Microsoft, HCL Technologies, Google, Adobe have abandoned the bell curve based system performance appraisal. All of them are switching to a continuous feedback process throughout the year to get a holistic view of performance and potential.

  Child care leave to be made mandatory for all CPSUs.

  Performance Related Pay(PRP) with an objective PMS. It should have two parts, Productivity linked PRP and Profit linked PRP.

Even for sick/loss making CPSUs except allowances all The Minimum Salary shall include Basic Pay plus IDA, HRA, Medical facility and Company contribution towards terminal benefits.

2) Superannuation benefit with fixed components PF, Gratuity, Employee Pension Scheme and Medical Benefits for Retired Employees. Our main focus was to make it mandatory like pay scale revision. CPSUs should not be given flexibility on deciding the quantum of contribution.

3) Automatic pension revision for the BSNL/MTNL pensioners absorbed from DoT as per CCS pension Rules 1972. Since the pension is paid on IDA scales, it should be covered by PRC as requested by DoT.

It was an excellent opportunity for NCOA as we could interact with the PRC for 02 Hrs 25 minutes in two days covering all the main issues. Com Baby Thomas, Secretary General/NCOA, Com V. K. Tomar, President NCOA, Com KSN Raju, Com K. Sebastin, GS/SNEA, Com Vidyasagar/BHEL, Com Lakhsmi Narayan/BEL and office bearers from other CPSUs participated.

  28.07.2016: CHQ NEWS:

Meeting with Shri N. Sivasailam, Addl Secretary, DoT on 28.07.2016: GS, CHQ President and Chairman met Addl Secretary, DoT and held discussions on the following issues:

a) Approval of E2, E3, -- pay scales replacing non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A: As suggested by CMD in the meeting on 21.07.2016, Assn explained the background of the issue once again to Addl Sec. E1A and E2A pay scales are not approved by DoT being non standard pay scales. The presidential orders for these two scales not issued by DoT, which is part of 2nd PRC. Addl Sec again started with E1 and E2 replacing E1A and E2A and proposing measures to protest the pay or extending pay equivalent to E1A by any means. By sending the proposal of E2, E3, -- E7 by BSNL, the little scope for considering E1A to E2 and E2A to E3 also reduced, Addl Sec told us. Addl Sec is of the view that it has to be referred to DPE even without recommendation as there is no justification for E4 to E7 or it can be examined at the time of 3rd PRC. Assn explained that E1A and E2A are rejected by DoT and DPE and hence there is no need to send it again to DPE. Reduction of pay scales to E1 and E2 is nothing but demotion which cannot be accepted. Further Assn pointed out that replacement scales for E1A and E2A are part of 2nd PRC and DoT should consider it separately. In that case, according to Addl Sec, BSNL should have taken it separately, not linking with other scales. Finally after lot of discussion, Addl Sec agreed to consider E2 and E3 and replacement of E1A and E2A with E2 and E3 will be recommended to DPE with the BSNL proposal.

b) Superannuation benefit to BSNL direct rect employees: The stand of DoT on this issue also not positive even though DoT didn’t have any financial implications. The thinking in DoT is that even this fund is not required. Assn explained to Addl Sec about the DPE orders in this regard and BSNL rects are not covered by any pension schemes other than this. Addl Sec assured settle it positively.

DoT is very negative in settling both the issues, at all levels as expected. Assn is trying its level best to settle the issues through discussion, without industrial unrest. However, the developments are not at all positive. All organizational preparedness is to be maintained to launch any struggle at short notice.

Double fixation as per the provisions of EPP: EPP provides one additional increment on post based promotion from same scale to same scale. This has been objected by DoT pension cell recently. Assn explained the background and told Addl Sec that this provision is part of EPP and EPP order is issued after the approval of DoT. So DoT also cannot make objections now. Addl Sec informed that DoT not objected Additional increment on post based promotion but BSNL treating it as Advance increment instead of Additional increment and allowing option and change of DNI. This is not allowed, DNI will remain the same as given at the time of scale upgradation. The recent DoT order is wrongly interpreted and assured that it will be corrected. He immediately given instructions to the concerned officers to correct the order.

  20.07.2016: View Media Report:

Niti Aayog may consider strategic sale in BSNL, MTNL.

SNEA unequivocally and strongly condemn the diabolical and sinister move of the GOVERNMENT in general and the NITI AAYOG in particular in considering strategic sale of National Telecom Institution of the Country – BSNL. SNEA wows that each and every member of SNEA will fight to the last drop of his blood to ensure that the government does not venture and dare to even remotely go ahead with such retrograde decision.

SNEA warns the government and the Niti Aayog to desist from taking such a preposterous decision failing which this association will fully expose the government, policy makers, the Niti Aayog of massive political corruption, bureaucratic red tape, complete lack of autonomy for the BSNL Management and protecting vested private operators that has lead to the declining revenue of BSNL and its becoming weak. The government, policy makers squarely responsible for the present state of affairs of BSNL.

SNEA calls upon its members throughout the country to start gearing up for a prolonged and sustained struggle to completely expose and defeat the ulterior design of the government to sell even 1% of the stake of government in BSNL, let alone strategic sale of BSNL that is being contemplated by the government.

SNEA has to remain fully prepared for what could be a bloodshed struggle to fully safe guard against BSNL – a strategic prestigious National Telecom Institution of telecom from attacks from the government, vested interest and bureaucracy. This National Telecom Institution of telecom has met in the most extraordinary and unparalleled manner social obligation of the various telecom policies of government from time to time and has met the aspirations of the common man in providing telecom services of universal qualities at affordable price.

Let the government carefully evaluate and analyze to how private operators have destabilized telecom sector and abdicated and blatantly violated their responsibility mandated to them by the policy in providing services in remote and far flung areas of the country. The Government must heavily come down on private operators for their naked policies violation that has resulted in weakening of BSNL.

  14.07.2016: GS along with Chairman, AGS Com P.P.Rao and JS Com Aravind Pal Dahiya met Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL on 14.07.2016 and discussed following issues.

1. Requested his intervention in clearance of the proposal of E2, E3 and E4 to E7 pay scales to Executives as recommended by BSNL and sent to DOT. Association informed the discussions we had at various levels of Officers in DOT during the intervening period. CMD assured his personal intervention.

2. Requested for the finalization of Jt Committee recommendation on CPSU cadre Hierarchy as assured by the BSNL Management. The dead line is fixed as 31.08.2016, concrete and brainstorming discussions to take place on the proposal. Unless the management and the Associations work in synchronization, the issue cannot be resolved. Requested intervention at higher level for the early implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy as all the Executives Promotions are struck up in one court or the other.

3.Association discussed on the issues to be highlighted before 3rd PRC by the BSNL Management and the letter submitted on PRC by SNEA. CMD informed that he had gone through the SNEA suggestions and try to incorporate them. Association requested for projecting BSNL as equivalent to NAVRATNA PSU, as it is operating on PAN India basis with more than Rs 31,000 Crores revenue. Since BSNL is in service sector, the profitability should not be the criteria for finalizing the pay scales. As BSNL is providing services in the nook and corner of the country and non remunerative areas. BSNL is the only operator adhering to the social obligations and meeting the expectations of the Govt. Requested for projecting to the 3rdPRC with special mention about the services BSNL rendering in entire Rural areas and hence the Pay Scales to be finalized without linking with the profitability of the company.

GS and AGS along with the GS SNATTA, Dy GS SNATTA and other Office bearers met GM (Estt) and requested to consider the relaxation for all the TTAs of 2007 recruitment to be made eligible for JTO LICE held on 22.05.2016 to resolve the issue once for all. Present relaxation created more anomaly. In some Circles, TTA exam held in 2008 but they joined for training before 01.07.2008, but relaxation not given. GM(Estt) explained that relaxation is given for those Circles where atleast one batch started training before 01.07.2008 irrespective of date of TTA examination. If any Circle is left out, it will be covered, she assured. We pointed out that clarification is not specifying this fact but taken as a cut off date of 31.12.2007 for TTA exam, irrespective of training. GM further clarified that it is applicable only for the Circles where trg started before 01.07.2008 and it is not applicable for a Circle where trg started after 01.07.2008 but TTA exam held before 31.12.2007. Assn told mgt that rect section and Circles not interpreted the clarification as explained now and it may further vitiate the situation. So viable solution may be to allow everybody. The relaxations thus given, needs to be ratified later by the competent authority, ie BSNL Board to protect the executives from legal hurdle at the later date. GM(Estt) assured to examine the matter in view of the suggestions given by us.

GS and AGS also discussed with GM (Estt) on the 3rd PRC proposals to be submitted by the BSNL and requested to give all possible inputs that project BSNL equivalent to NAVRATNA PSU.
