Dear DR-JAO Candidates...
AIBSNLEA was formally launched on 1st May, 2004 by merging 10 DoT recognized Group-'B' officers Associations & thus represents in true sense all disciplines of Executives of BSNL i.e. Telecom Engineering, Telecom Finance & Accounts, Civil / Electrical / Arch./ TFs Engineering Wings, Personnel Staffs (PA/PS/PSS), CSS Staffs, AD(O/L) & General Disciplines of BSNL.
So , AIBSNLEA is the only one association standing/fighting for all the benefits of all the executives in Telecom Finance & Accounts department . From the very beginning, one association has been standing/fighting against the profits of the executives in Finance & Accounts department through series of destructive measures . Last one in the series was their destructive letter to CMD BSNL demanding no more recruitment of Finance & Accounts personal to BSNL . But, as usual, AIBSNLEA has to fight for Finance & Accounts department by writing to CMD to recruit young JAOs for the benefit of BSNL .
Thus only because of AIBSNLEA, young DR-JAOs are joining to BSNL. AIBSNLEA sincerely Welcomes every one of you to BSNL.
SNEA’s demand : not to give life to any more DR-JAO in BSNL <<<<< Click to view Letter>>>>

Meeting with GM(Pers): GS, President and AGS (DR) met GM(Pers) and discussed regarding implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy and requested to discuss the observations given by Jt. Secy. so that the same can be informed to our members. GM(Pers) appreciated our concern and discussed point wise all the observations made by JS (Admn.). The following discussions took place.
a) CPSU cadre hierarchy: GM(Pers) informed that response on CPSU cadre hierarchy proposal approved by BSNL MC has been received from Jt. Secy. (Admn) DoT, Govt. nominee Director of BSNL Board wherein he has given some objections in the proposal submitted by the BSNL viz.
i) In the BSNLs proposal cleared by BSNL MC will create financial and legal implications due to effective date of implementation from 01.01.2017. In view of this JS has suggested to give date of effect from prospective date
ii) The existing vacancies are to be filled up subject to outcome of court case by conducting CPCs.
iii) Prior approval of BSNL Board/DoT is required wherein promotions affecting pension instead of only BSNL MC approval.
iv) Existing EPP shouldn't be continued in BSNL after implementation of CPSU hierarchy.
v) BSNL HR plan has not been finalized on the required no. of posts which needs clarification.
vi) The Screening committee has to be conducted on every time bound functional promotions under CPSU cade hierarchy instead of automatic promotion for the executives working in higher scales.
vii) The clause 5.6 is irrelevant para on AGM (Adhoc) as no vacancy based promotion up to AGM.
viii) Date of financial upgradation E4-E5 and E5-E6 has to be explained since the CPSU time bound functional promotions are limiting up to E4 scale only.
ix) Any functional promotion in the same scale no additional increment is allowed.
x) The bench mark should be very good (35) for OC and Good (31) for SC/ST instead of good (31) and Average (27) bench mark.
xi) Promotion to be given in the feeder cadre as per existing policy, if there is no court stay order is pending on promotion.
xii) All the cadres seniority lists should be finalized immediately etc.
GM Pers told that these issues needs to be examined and submitted to the JS for consideration before submitting the final proposal to the BSNL Board. We expressed our serious concern against the observations made by JS (Admn.) DoT wherein the date of effect has been suggested from prospective date, similarly the eligibility condition from SDE/AO to DE/CAO promotion is now prescribed 12 years' service instead of 5/7 years of service and increase in bench mark etc. will not at all benefit the executives rather will put them into loss.
We further requested to consider date of effect from the last DPC date/ year of recruitment and to consider our views/ suggestions given earlier on all the clauses vide our letter no. AIBSNLEA/CHQ/CPSU/2017 dated 15.11.2017. Also requested to expedite CPCs on priority.
b) Filling up of the Vacant Group-A and Group-B equivalent posts: We requested GM(Pers) to initiate CPCs to fill up the vacant Group-A and Group-B level posts in all wings i.e. telecom , finance , electrical ,civil , Arch, Telecom factory (Engg. Wings) subject to outcome of the Court cases as per the management committee approval. GM (Pers) assured for an early action to move the proposal for initiating CPCs in all disciplines
c) Posting of LDCE qualified JTOs on promotion to SDE: we requested to issue promotions orders for LDCE qualified JTOs to the post of SDEs subject to VC in view of the decisions taken by the Management committee, in line with the some previous promotion orders. Immediately, GM (Pers.) contacted to GM(Vig.) in this regard . GM (Vig.) has told that he will take opinion of CVO BSNL and convey to Pers. cell. GM (Pers) assured that immediate action will be taken after getting opinion of CVO.
d) Promotion from JTO to SDE(Telecom.) SCF quota:- We requested GM(Pers) to initiate CPC to fill up the vacant TES Group-B posts since the judgement of Hon'ble High Court Kerala is expected to be pronounced after 23rd May 2018. Since the new SDE RR has been notifying on seniority fixation in SDE cadre on ROTA Quota basis which may allow favorable judgement, this will allow promotions. More than 10000 SDE(Telecom.) vacant posts are there which needs immediate filling up. Earlier the CPC was initiated to fill up about 6000 SDE (T) posts but due to stay orders the same was held up. Most of the APARs of the eligible JTOs were accessed through screening process for promotion thus now only one or two years APARs needs to be accessed for promotion. GM (Pers) mentioned that the VCRs have already been called from the Circles and the action to initiate CPC will be take shortly.
e) Implementation of Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement on TES Group-‘B' Seniority cases: We requested for early implementation of Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement on TES Group-‘B' Seniority cases to avoid contempt. After detail discussions, GM (Pers.) mentioned that Committee constituted regarding 147 SDEs case will finalize its report /observation shortly and assured that to Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement will be implemented soon in its true sprit to avoid contempt of court cases. He also mentioned that rule 206 implementation case is in progress for implementation and it will be implemented immediately after completion of 147 case.
(vi) Consideration of request / tenure transfers of SDEs/DEs and DGMs: We requested for request transfers / modification / implementation of tenure transfers of SDEs/DEs and DGMs. GM(Pers.) assured to look into the matter.
Issue of increment on regular promotion to a scale:
BSNL Corporate Office issues orders regarding Pay fixation matters relating to BSNL Employees under provisions of EPP - Issue of increment on regular promotion to a scale - CAT Principle Bench New Delhi orders dated 21.12.2017.
It is worth while to mention that AIBSNLEA only has initiated and filed the case in Hon'ble PBCAT New Delhi and got quashed the DoT's disputed letter date 05.07.2017 for all irrespective of any discrimination.

We also apprised that the reply from DPE in this regard has also been received in DoT long before. Now the administrative ministry can consider implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL as per its recommendations on affordability clause.

Meeting with Dir(PSU) DoT:- GS, President, AGS (DR) met Dir(PSU) DoT and discussed regarding.
a) Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit: We requested Dir(PSU) for the implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit as recommended by BSNL Board. We also pleaded that administrative ministry can consider implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL as per its recommendations on affordability clause. However, the reply from DPE in this regard has also been received in DoT long before. Dir(PSU) mentioned that the DPE reply has been given cognizance by all the Sr. Officers in DoT but further action is yet to be taken. It seems that the work regarding preparation of Cabinet note for relaxation in the affordability clause has not yet started in DoT. This a serious situation and all the Unions and Associations of BSNL Should immediately decide their strategies to impress upon DoT for the settlement of this issue otherwise the issue will linger on in DoT.
b) Reply to BSNL on CPSU cadre hierarchy: Dir (PSU) confirmed that Jt. Secy. (Admn) Dot being the Govt. Nominee Director of BSNL Board has sent his observations to BSNL for the rectification in the CPSU Cadre hierarchy proposal before its placement in the next BSNL Board meeting which scheduled to be held on 28thMay 2018.
