21.09.2018  Details of the discussion with BSNL management on 20.09.2018 on the charter of demands of the agitation programs from 24.09.2018 onwards:

  BSNL management invited SNEA for discussions on various issues raised in the charter of demands. GS, CHQ President, AGS and Jt Sec(C) attended the meeting. DIR(HR), GM(SR), GM(Pers) and DGM(Estt) was present from management side.  The discussions continued for more than one and half hours on various issues.

At the outset DIR(HR) informed that BSNL management is taking very serious efforts to implement CPSU Cadre Hierarchy which is already approved by the BSNL Board, to settle E2 & E3 pay scales and other issues and discussion is going on at different level to resolve the issues, the proposed agitation programs from 24.09.2018 is to be avoided. All the genuine demands are getting attention and management is sincerely trying to resolve them. Thereafter discussion started on the various demands:

1. Notify and implement BSNL Executive promotion Policy Amendment & Recruitment Rules, 2017 (CPSU Cadre Hierarchy) w.e.f. 01.07.2018 which is approved by the BSNL Board and solve the huge stagnation in different cadres. Bring Parity and Uniformity in promotions among equivalent cadres of different wings. All the existing vacancies in different cadres like SDE(T), CAO etc shall be filled notionally w.e.f. 29.06.2018 as per the earlier rules.

 DIR(HR) informed that management is very seriously working on it. BSNL Board already approved it and management spent more than 2 years to finalise the policy, which is going to benefit all the executives. While approving the new promotion policy, BSNL Board directed to ensure that Govt policies on reservation is followed in the new policy also. This matter is under examination.

 Meanwhile the matter come up before the Parliamentary Standing Committee for the welfare of SCs and STs also, along with several other issues. The Committee called the management on 19.09.2018. Initially CMD and DIR(HR) sought exemption from personal appearance due to the Board meeting scheduled for 19.09.18 but later on decided to attend the meeting. The Full BSNL Board meeting scheduled for 19.09.2018 was cancelled for this purpose which reflects the seriousness shown by CMD and DIR(HR) on this issue.

 The Committee formed will complete the formalities and submit its final report by next week and thereafter it will be submitted to the competent authority. Management is trying its level best to implement it at the earliest by taking everyone into confidence, DIR(HR) assured.

 Comrades, now the issue is moving in the right direction and results are expected without much delay. We are working with the management for the early notification and its implementation.

 On promotions, DIR(HR) informed that whatever promotions and upgradations done, it lead to litigations and contempt of court. Court cases increased only. CMD is not at all in favour of any more upgradation. JTO to SDE promotions also will be considered once contempt is withdrawn. On AO to CAO promotion, it was informed that the stay is vacated, the DPC is on and promotion orders can be issued as soon as the legal opinion is received from the Sr lawyer from whom the opinion sought. On our specific request to consider JTO to SDE promotion under SCF, where the seniority can be decided later on, finally DIR(HR) agreed to have further discussion with GM(P) on this matter. However mgt expressed its doubt how promotion can be effected without publishing AIEL? As per HC order, only provisional promotion (same as Adhoc/Offtg/LA promotion which does not give seniority or counting of service) can be given in the ratio 1:1, before publishing AIEL. The contempt case at Ernakulam filed by AIGETOA activists is the major hurdle for JTO to SDE promotion where more than 5,500 vacancies are available.

2. Approval of E2 and E3 pay scales w.e.f. 01.01.2007 replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A for all the post 2007 recruited JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs and equivalent cadres.

 DIR(HR) explained the efforts taken by the mgt by deputing BSNL Officers to DPE for explaining the matter to DPE officials. Mgt is committed to E2 and E3 scales and all possible measures will be taken to settle it. CMD will write a DO letter to Secretary in this regard to expedite the approval of E2 and E3.

 Assn also informed DIR(HR) and others the continuous efforts taken by it. Assn met the Hon Union Minister for Heavy Industries, Shri Anat Geete and requested his intervention to modify the DPE reply. As per the intervention of the Hon Minister, we are trying to meet the Secretary/DPE in this regard.

 E2 and E3 pay scales is the most important HR issue for the BSNL Executives, like the new promotion policy, which is to be resolved at the earliest, we demanded. DIR(HR) assured that CMD and DIR(HR) will work together with the Assn for the settlement of E2 and E3 scales.

3. First Time Bound Financial Upgradation as per EPP-2007, uniformly after 4 years, instead of 4 to 6 years.

 We explained the matter to DIR(HR). The JTO/JAOs recruited from 1993 to 2001 got their first TB promotion in 5 or 6 years where as the juniors are getting it after 4 years. This is the anomaly created after the implementation of 2nd PRC with 30% fitment and 78.2% IDA merger. This anomaly referred to the Khan Committee. Khan Committee recommended CPSU Hierarchy after 5 years by reducing it from 6 years as in EPP. On the same line, recommended the first TB promotion for the earlier rects also after 5 years. But this anomaly can be settled only if the first TB promotion is extended uniformly after 4 years, Assn told. The informations regarding the number of Executives affected are already collected from the Circles. After discussion, GM(Pers) informed that the details will be processed in a couple of weeks and will be submitted to the competent authority.

 It is a very positive development as mgt so far reluctant to process the case on the plea that BSNL Board and DoT will not agree for the amendment of EPP with retrospective effect, from 01.10.2004.

4. E1+5 increments for the post 2010 rect JTO/JAOs and equivalent cadres.

 The benefit of E1+5 increments is not extended to the thousands of JTO/JAOs rected after 2010. The new rects are getting the pay of Rs 16400 only where as earlier batches are getting minimum E1+5 increments. The pay loss of these JTO/JAOs recruited in 2010(SRD), 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 etc are huge. Thousands of LICE JTO/JAOs also affected and they are also drawing less than E1+5 increments. Even the PO issued by DoT on 28.03.2017 extended Rs 18850. Taking the benefit out of that, E1+5 increments may be extended to the remaining JTO/JAOs recruited after 2010.

  Management is very sympathetic to this demand. It was informed that the proposal for E1+5 increments for the JTO/JAOs recruited upto 2014 is pending in the BSNL Board since, 2015. BSNL Board took a stand that it will be approved only after the approval of HR plan. For remaining JTO/JAOs, Board is not ready to consider E1+5 as they are recruited in E1 scale. We strongly objected this as the E1 pay scale is a provisional pay scale and even the pay scales in the RR for JAO, JTO(C/E) etc are still E1A.   

 We demanded that as per the PO issued by DoT, E1+5 can be extended. We have to find a way to extend it without notifying the PO issued by DoT, we demanded. Management assured to discuss it further to find some way out, keeping the demand for E2 and E3 scales intact.

5. E1A and E2A scales notionally w.e.f. 01.10.2000 for the JTOs and SDEs in Civil, Electrical, TF, Arch, PA, PS etc and equivalent cadres.

 This proposal is already approved by the MC of the BSNL Board and placed before the full BSNL Board for its approval. However DoT objected it stating that E1A and E2A scales can be extended only to those working in the corresponding CDA scales before 01.10.2000. The JEs and AEs were not in that sale on 01.10.2000, so it cannot be considered. The presidential order issued at the time of absorption cannot be altered now, according to DoT. We explained the background and the need to bring parity in the pay scales as on 01.10.2000 for all the equivalent cadres. Moreover the JTOs and SDEs of these streams are working in the same pay scales for a few months which is a serious anomaly. Recently AD(OL) case also settled like that. Finally it was agreed to examine it, whether it can be implemented without altering the PO issued on 01.10.2000, to overcome the DoT objection.

6. Increase the DGM(T) posts, atleast by another 800 for maintaining a ratio 1:4 and filling up all the DGM(T) vacancies on regular basis.

 Increase in DGM(T) posts is a demand we raised 1 year back. The number of DGM(T) posts was less, comparing to any other streams. 1331 DGM(T) posts are available against the 5303 AGM posts. Even the available DGM(T) posts, maximum were occupied by the ITS officers on deputation which further affected our limited promotional avenues.

 The creation of another 3410 AGM posts recently through upgradation strengthened our demand for increasing the DGM(T) posts atleast by another 800. Now the total number of AGM post is 8713. Moreover, the number of AGMs after implementation of CPSU Hierarchy will be between 8500 to 9500, so naturally the DGM posts is to be increased, we argued the case with full justification.

 Finally management in principle agreed to our demand for increasing the DGM(T) posts to maintain a reasonable ratio. It is to be further discussed and worked out whether it can be done through HR plan or through cadre review. It will be a major breakthrough for the cadre after the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy approval. Similarly for other streams also, same ratio will be worked out.

 On DGM(T) promotions, BSNL is filed a MA in the Hon CAT to vacate the stay citing the vacation of stay in a similar case, AO to CAO promotion. It is expected to hear on next Monday. The original case is listed for 27.10.2018 only. Once stay is vacated, DPC will be held including the DRDGM vacant posts and promotion orders will be issued.

 Comrades, the extensive preparations for the agitation programs by the CHQ and the Circles compelled the management to invite SNEA for negotiation. We had made extensive arrangements for the agitation programs. The response from our activists was so positive, they were solidly with CHQ supporting from all the corners. In addition to CS and CP, large number of activists planned to reach New Delhi from far off places to participate in the agitation. It shows the commitment and conviction of our comrades on the issues. It is a great break thorough, now management assured us to work together to settle the issues in a time bound manner. Congratulations to one and all.

 We are extremely grateful to CMD/BSNL, DIR(HR) and other senior officers for the timely intervention to resolve the issues through discussion. Further we are very happy to note that we could do it without going into agitation, through negotiations especially when we are fully involved in the field units for the revival of BSNL. Once again, congratulations to one and all.

Letter

19.09.2018

 What compelled SNEA to launch agitations from 24.09.18:

       The developments which compelled SNEA to launch the agitations from 24.09.2018 on various issues will be discussed one by one. When negotiations and discussions does not yield the result and resolution of the issues, we don’t have any other option other than trade union actions. Normally in such situations, management will get involve in serious discussions to settle the issues in the best possible manner but unfortunately nowadays, the entire energy is diverted in doing research, how to discipline the Associations/ Unions, instead of addressing the serious HR issues comprehensively. In this situation, as a responsible Recognised Executive Association, we are duty bound to protect the interest of our members as well as all the BSNL Executives.

1. Notify and implement BSNL Executive promotion Policy Amendment & Recruitment Rules, 2017 (CPSU Cadre Hierarchy) w.e.f. 01.07.2018 which is approved by the BSNL Board and solve the huge stagnation in different cadres. Bring Parity and Uniformity in promotions among equivalent cadres of different wings. All the existing vacancies in different cadres like SDE(T), CAO etc shall be filled notionally w.e.f. 29.06.2018 as per the earlier rules.

    The urge for a Uniform Time Bound Functional Promotion policy, delinking from availability of posts and seniority related issues, as prevailing in other CPSUs, was the demand of our beloved Association from the day of formation of BSNL. This is because of our bitter experience in the past, directly recruited JTOs retired as JTOs, without a single promotion or waiting for 20 to 25 years for one promotion etc due to want of vacancies. SNEA alone fought for the Time Bound Functional Promotion policy in 2002 and laid the strong foundation in the form of Terms and condition for absorption. In 2005, we sincerely tried to erect the structure in the form of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy by demanding Time Bound Promotion upto SG JAG level (E6 scale) but we could not fully succeed in the agitation. Finally EPP-2007 implemented and post based promotions continued as part of it as in a Govt department.

    As a result of our agitation in 2015, the demand again picked momentum by the formation of Khan Committee. The Committee made a positive recommendation in October, 2015, recommending Time Bound Functional promotion upto AGM grade, after every 5 years. After the MV, management and SNEA further negotiated for the implementation as assured at the time of absorption in BSNL. Finally, after considering the views of other stake holders also, the new promotion policy was approved by the BSNL Board on 28.05.2018.

  The approval of the minutes of the Board meeting taken some time and according to the approval, two points required to be examined before its implementation, 1) Whether financial implication is there or not for prior concurrence of DoT and 2) Reservation policies of the Govt is followed in the new policy? In the intervening period, before the next due date of promotion, ie. 01.07.2018 we conducted all the DPCs which are feasible in a record time and issued the promotion orders on 29.06.2018 which made the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy w.e.f 01.07.2018 very smooth.

  Meanwhile both the issues referred to two separate Committees:

  1) Whether financial implication is there or not for which prior DoT concurrence required: The Committee after careful examination recommended that there is no additional financial implication on implementation of the new promotion policy, rather saving is there and as such it need not require the prior approval of DoT.

  2) Reservation policies of the Govt is followed in the new policy? This matter was referred to a Committee of senior officers comprising Sr GM(Estt), GM(Per), GM(EF&FP) and GM(CLO). This Committee after exhaustive deliberations on the subject come to a conclusion that the Govt policies of Reservation is followed in the new promotion policy and submitted a unanimous report in this regard.

  With the very positive recommendations from both the Committees, naturally we expected its notification and implementation atleast from 01.07.2018. By approving the proposal with a prospective date, instead of the proposed date of 01.01.2017, the Executives already lost one and half years of service. This already have a big impact on the future promotions. After implementation of the policy this issue to be deliberated further by seeking amendment for more relaxation.

  Now management is dilly dallying on the notification and implementation w.e.f 01.07.2018. According to our rough calculation, about 18,500 Executives are expected to get promotion to one or the other grades w.e.f 01.07.2018. The HR plan and drastic reduction on the number of posts (about 40%) is hanging over our heads. So far we could stop it, till the approval of the new non-post based promotion policy, by delinking the promotions from the availability of posts and seniority. On approval of HR plan, it may become even difficult to justify the recent promotions as the number of posts will be less than the promotions. So many HR issues like E1+5 increments etc is pending in the BSNL Board, since 2014 for the approval, in the name of HR plan finalization.

  All the vacancies in almost all the cadres filled up on 29.06.2018. Even after that, Executives recruited in the year 1988 as JTO(Arch) still remain as a JTO as there is no vacancy. JTO(E/C) form 1997/1998 are waiting for promotion, even SC/ST comrades. Is they does not deserve even a single promotion? SDE(C/E/T) from 1998/2004 are waiting for AGM promotion. Every time can we look towards the Hon courts, vacation of stay and vacancies for our promotions? Can upgradation of posts as and when required is a feasible solution when the posts itself is going to be cut drastically? Even the SC/ST Executives are waiting for 10 to 15 years for their promotion in different cadres. As a solution we could get three assured Time Bound Functional promotions after 5 years in the new policy

  Comrades, CHQ could negotiate an excellent non-post based, Uniform Time Bound Functional Promotion Policy upto AGM Equivalent Grade, delinking from the seniority, as per the terms and conditions of absorption in BSNL. We could get it approved by the BSNL Board also. Finally our efforts since 2002 for the implementation of a non-post based, Uniform Time Bound Functional Promotion Policy got Board approval, upto AGM Equivalent Grade. Now CHQ is facing difficulty in getting it notified and implemented. It is not possible without your active support. Our sincere efforts for the last 15 years should yield the desired results, ie. Un-interrupted promotions as in EPP. We seek your active support and participation in the coming agitational programs from 24.09.2018 with full spirit and commitment.

 The PARITY IN PROMOTIONS among equivalent cadres in different wings is not a simple demand, we meant business. At the same time we once again want to make it clear that it is not against any particular cadre, rather it is for the welfare and uniform treatment of all the equivalent cadres. In upgradations or CPSU Hierarchy, parity is to be maintained atleast in the future. Discrimination in promotions will lead to demoralization and ultimately affects the performance.

  There are huge number of vacancies available prior to 30.06.2018 in SDE(T) cadre and good number of vacancies in CAO cadre. This vacancies are to be filled as on 29.06.2018 as their juniors in equivalent cadres in other wings already promoted on 29.06.2018. This will bring parity in those cadres also. This demand already we placed before the management to protect the interest of our comrades.

19.09.2018 GS writes to DIR(HR): JTO to SDE promotions under SCF quota for about 5,500 vacancies for the years 2011-12 to 2017-18. Since the High Court decision on the review petition is pending, it is requested to explore the possibility of conduction of DPC covering all the JTOs of a particular year, without publishing the AIEL. As there is no stay on promotion, promotion orders can be issued to the maximum possible extent, recruitment year wise and the seniority can be decided later on, based on the final outcome of the court cases. Since the vacancies are existing prior to 30.06.2018, the promotion orders may be issued notionally w.e.f 29.06.2018, at par with the juniors promoted from other cadres on 29.06.2018. As per the available vacancies, the JTOs recruited for the years 2010 & 2013 also may be covered and hence the eligibility list particulars of the JTOs recruited in 2010 (SRD) and 2013 also may be called from Circles:

       GS writes to CMD/BSNL regarding promotion to AGM Grade: Large number of AGM vacancies were reserved for untraceable cases at the time of DPC and it is reported that excess promotions happened against SC/ST quota in the promotion to AGM cadre. The matter may be reviewed and the eligible SDEs in list 8 waiting for promotion may be given promotion w.e.f. 29.06.2018 as their juniors are promoted on 29.06.2018.

10.09.2018 DoT reference to DPE on replacement of E1A and E2A scale
with E2 and E3 scales.

      
  It explains the damages made by the stand taken by one Association to the cadre and the advantage taken out of that by DoT, quoting their stand. DoT cleverly utilized their demand to scuttle the genuine demand for E2 and E3 scales in the name of cascading effect. It also exposes the allegation made by another Association against SNEA that BSNL offered E2 pay scales for the JTO/JAOs recruited by BSNL at the time of absorption in BSNL but SNEA compromised for E1A scale.

   SNEA consistently telling our beloved comrades that at the time of absorption BSNL offered E1 and E2 pay scales for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO equivalent cadres and SNEA demanded E2 and E3 scales respectively.As a result of very strong agitations in 2002 which paralysed the country, BSNL agreed for E1A and E2A scales.

   Atleast now the truth has come out from the mouth of DoT itself.

25.08.2018        JTO to SDE promotion case at Ernakulam:
   
   BSNL filed review petition in the Hon Ernakulam High Court against the order dated 05.06.2018 quashing the AIEL of direct recruits and excess promotees based on training centre marks as the inter-se seniority criteria. Hon HC ordered to fix the inter-se seniority of direct recruits and excess promotees as per date of joining/promotion. In the review petition BSNL pleaded for:

1. Restoration of training center marks for fixing the inter-se seniority among direct rects,
2. Restoration of rect year concept and
3. Deletion of the reference in the HC order that excess promotion is there from 1995 onwards instead of 2001 onwards. Once the review petition is allowed and trg centre marks is restored, we will be able to expedite the JTO to SDE promotion.

   We hope that the applicants who are AIGETOA activists will not oppose the review petition to restore the trg centre marks and help to issue promotion orders.

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.

  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.
