15-10-2020 Dept of Telecom issues clarifications to BSNL and MTNL on various queries relating to Reservation in promotion for SC/ST based on the legal opinion received from the Ld. Attorney General of India (AG) regarding various court orders and its implications through the Law Ministry and DoP&T. DoT sought the legal opinion on various points as per the direction of the Parliamentary Committee.
The Union Govt plea through the IA for giving Adhoc promotions till final decision, based on the interim order of the Hon SC also not decided by Hon SC, it is explained in para iv.b). The IA is clubbed with the SLP.
It endorses our concern and view point on the impact of reservation in promotions due to Hon Supreme Court orders and various court orders. Some Associations tried to downplay it for the sake of MV as if there is no serious problem for the promotions.
The Hon CAT/Chandigarh judgment dated 25.02.2020 against AO, CAO and DE promotions made the promotions provisional. Further Hon CAT directed BSNL to formulate policies as per the conditions laid down by the Hon CAT in its order. It is learned that same judgment is applicable for BSNL for promotion to other cadres also.
Anticipating such developments from our past experience, SNEA worked out the non-post based promotion policy well in advance which is free from litigations related to Reservation and Seniority. It is high time to go all out for its implementation from 01.07.2018, irrespective of any DPC taking place or not.

15-10-2020 Congratulations: BSNL circulated the AIEL of JTOs with the same age old criteria of Rect Year and Training Centre marks, vindicating SNEA stand.
The AIGETOA demand for: i) 1:1 inter-se seniority (irrespective of rect year) and ii) seniority based on Date of Joining rejected again vindicating SNEA stand.
The AIEL circulated on 12.10.2020 is same as that of the final AIEL circulated on 20.02.2015 and again on 14.06.2018, except placing the supernumerary JTOs recruited from 2001 to 2007 rect years at the bottom of each Rect years. Against these AIEL only, AIGETOA fought the cases at CAT and High Court and filed contempt petition and stopped the second DPC in 2018. The major contention of AIGETOA was that the DR JTOs of 2001 rect year onwards are to be interpolated with 1995 to 1999 rect promotee JTOs as there was no DR rect during 1995 to 1999. Another contention of AIGETOA was that the 1995 to 1999 rect JTOs who joined in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 etc through the LICE quota and SC/ST quota are excess promotees. Both contentions are not accepted by the Court as well BSNL. BSNL placed all of them in respective Rect years from 1995 to 1999, irrespective of DoJ in the new AIEL also.
Whether AIGETOA and their activists will accept this AIEL or again go for litigations as done in 2015 and 2018 is to wait and watch as the AIEL published on 14.06.2018 and 12.10.2020 is one and the same. We hope that better sense will prevail on them and they will not oppose this AIEL and stop DPC as done in the past.
Last 10 years, AIGETOA was fighting legal battle in different courts claiming for 1:1 seniority irrespective of Rect year (1:1 interpolation of 2001 rect DRs with 1995 Rect promotees) and declaring the 1995 to 1999 rect JTOs joined after 2000 as excess promotees.
If litigations were not there, all the JTOs upto 2001 would have become SDEs in 2015 itself as per the final AIEL dated 20.02.2015. Remaining JTOs become SDEs in 2018 or even earlier.
The AIEL particulars for the remaining batches also will be called shortly as assured by the management.
The new PGM(Pers) immediately after joining, took immediate action for changing the criteria of inter-se-seniority from DoJ to Rect year and Training Centre marks. He was earlier GM(Estt) and instrumental for JTO RR 2014.
Their agenda is very clear now:
i) Delay and thereby deny the promotions to large number of JTOs (1995 to 1999), about 4000 in promotee quota. They retired without getting promotions. They were not a contender for further promotion to DE.
ii) Delay the promotion of remaining JTOs upto 2005 and the 2007 and 2008 JTOs also by not allowing the DPC in 2018. If litigation was not there, DPC and LDCE could have conducted year wise w/o delaying promotions.
Most importantly, they are working with the management to derail the much awaited Time Bound Functional Promotion (CPSU Cadre Hierarchy) which will give smooth promotion to the youngsters from 01.07.2018 onwards. Our efforts will continue to get the new promotion policy implemented and these JTOs also gets their SDE promotion from 01.07.2018 itself instead of a prospective date. Equally important, other eligible Executives in other cadres also have to get their promotion from 01.07.2018 onwards. Definitely we will be successful in our efforts and the coming CWC will be taking very strong decisions to get it implemented without any more delay.
