CS Writes to CGMT regarding the immediate release of JTOs on request transfer orders to parent SSA.
Sub: Release of all executives as per Letter HR-III/2-10/Tranfr&Posting/2016-17/4 dates
The much-awaited release of JTO executives as per order in reference is not being completed evenly along BAs. This created anxious confusions among the candidates on their release . The non-release of candidates from one BA to another BA resulted non-release of candidates from second BA. This unwholesome stage can be solved by releasing all the remaining candidates through ERP. Hence, we request your good office to release the candidate to parent SSA immediately through ERP.
With Warm regards,
Unions and Associations of BSNL writes to Shri J.S. Deepak, Secretary, Department of Telecommunications regarding program of Conducting March to Raj Bhawan and Collectorate / DM Officethroughout the country by the Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL on 09-03-2017 to highlight the following issues.

Sub: LICE and External JTO vacancy recalculation as per DoPT guide lines in Kerala circle also :-reg.
While the implementation of JTO RR 2014 on 14-10-2015 , Kerala circle had a total vacancy strength of 2364 with a mere 604 vacancies only filled remaining a vacancy strength of 1760 as detailed below.
Total sanctioned strength 2364
Working strength 604
External vacancy 1001
Internal vacancy 759
As per DoPT guidelines on 19-Jan-2007 (Annexture-1) , the total vacancies are to be divided in the 50:50 proportions as detailed below. Thus internal vacancies will enhance to 880 numbers instead of 759 numbers.
Total vacancy = 1001(External vacancy) + 759(internal vacancy)
50:50 proportions, Internal vacancy = 1760/2
Unfortunately this method of vacancy calculation has not been
followed here in Kerala
. Hence only 759 vacancies were
Total three LICEs were conducted after RR-2014. Third exam against VY 2015-16 was conducted on 11-12-2016 . Junior Engineers up to 2009 batch were eligible for this VY . There are around 280 LICE aspirants against the VY 2015-16 and Kerala circle has only 17 (OC) vacancies left with for the year , as detailed in Annexure-III .
Recently on 07/02/2017 corporate office allowed Punjab Circle to distribute the vacancies in 50:50 proportions for internal and external quota as per the DOPT guidelines ( Annexure-II ). Hence we request your good office to adopt the same methodology in Kerala circle also propelling an additional 121 vacancies created for the VY , as explained above , amounting a total 138(121+17) vacancies . It would a motivating move to the hard working young talent JEs and other eligible candidates against VY 2015-16 in Kerala Circle. Moreover, the acute shortage of JTOs in field units can be overtaken.

Refuting SNEA's derogatory remarks about AIBSNLEA while reporting JTO to SDE promotion case:
Regarding JTO to SDE promotion related case (OP CAT-45/2015 and similar OP) in Hon. High Court of Kerala, SNEA(I) is simply trying to misguide general members by giving false and derogatory comments about AIBSNLEA while reporting news of the court proceedings in their website.
GS met CMD BSNL and discussed regarding filling up of vacant posts of DEs/CAOs & DGMs. We requested that about 2000 DEs posts, 1000 CAOs posts and about 400 DGM(Engg.) & 100 posts of DGM(Fin.) are vacant. Similarly, about 160 EEs(Civil) posts are also vacant but the vacant posts of DEs/CAOs/EEs(Civil) are not being filled up on the pretext of pending court cases. From DE to DGM, CAO to DGM(Fin.) no court case is pending hence all these posts should be filled up immediately to meet the requirement of field units & to remove the stagnation in the career prospective of Group-'B' level executives. CMD appreciated our concern and assured to discuss the matter with Director(HR) for an early action.
We also requested for the implementation of 3rd PRC report with full fitment benefit in BSNL. CMD assured to look into the matter. It is understood that BSNL is submitting its feedback to DoT on 3rd PRC recommendations by tomorrow wherein BSNL is trying to provide 15% fitment benefit (highest fitment benefit) to BSNL executives on implementation of 3rd PRC. The HR Group of BSNL is actively involved in this process under the control of CGM(Legal), BSNL Corporate Office, New Delhi. AIBSNLEA is pursuing regularly at all the levels.
