GS, AIBSNLEA once again written (Reminder) to Shri P.K.Purwar, CMD BSNL and requested for immediate creation of Trust/Fund  for Post Retirement Medical Benefit for BSNL Recruits and releasing the  full pending arrears to the  Trust with effect from 01.01.2007 so as to mitigate the suffering being faced/would be faced  by the BSNL Direct Recruits and their families after VRS, Retirement,  Death etc., and to avoid any resentment and frustration among the BSNL Direct Recruits.

In this regard, GS AIBSNLEA has already written to CMD BSNL on 4.7.2020 and requested CMD, BSNL , Director(HR) and Director(Finance) for the past one year in so many meetings for immediate creation of Trust/Fund  for Post Retirement Medical Benefit for BSNL Recruits and releasing the  full pending arrears to the  Trust with effect from 01.01.2007.But till date no action has been taken in this regard. Hence Reminder has been written by the GS AIBSNLEA to CMD BSNL for immediate action in this regard.

Suggestions of AIBSNLEA

1.   PRMB should be a well defined contribution just like Superannuation Pension fund, EPFO Contribution ,Gratuity Fund etc.,

2.     This 3.3% of PRMB should be made as Defined contribution & Separate BSNL PRMB Trust should be formed otherwise this 3.3% contribution has no meaning & it should not be counted for Superannuation Benefits contribution.

3.     The effective date of creation of the Trust/Fund for Post Retirement Medical Benefit for the Direct Recruits Employees of BSNL must be 01.01.2007 i.e., the date of effect of 2nd PRC recommendations otherwise it will be a gross injustice to the BSNL Direct Recruits.

Anshu Prakash Ji,Chairman (DCC) & Secretary (T), DoT, Govt. of India regarding request for immediate release of long pending outstanding dues amounting to Rs.29,540/- crore to BSNL 

He insisted the Secretary(T) DOT for the immediate release the Claims Payable to BSNL to the tune of Rs.29,540 Cr  viz., Compensation to BSNL for un-remunerative but Socially desirable Projects ( i.e., for serving in Rural / Tribal/ Naxalite prone/LWE Areas) Compensation for carrying out Govt. Projects, Excess payment of Pension Contribution, Reimbursement of Leave encashment paid to the absorbed employees for the DoT period , Interest on Wi-Max Spectrum etc., which will definitely useful to BSNL for the timely disbursement Salary to the Employees of BSNL for improving its Services during the Pandemic and  Financial Crunch period.

 

Several measures of the Government of India, aimed at compensating BSNL for un-remunerative but Socially desirable Projects have provided the support required for Financial Viability of such operations to a great extent, in a scenario where the opportunities of cross subsidizing its Services have almost disappeared in a hyper competitive urban market. A Major Package of such support was in the form of subsidy for its Rural Operations through various schemes of USO fund. Several Government Projects have also been awarded to BSNL on nomination basis, where BSNL earns a centage for Execution. However, Technical evolutions in Telecom Network Landscape, intensity of competition in Telecom Sector, and inadequacy of Capital resources with BSNL has presented it with twin challenges of supporting a high maintenance Legacy Network on one hand and decreasing demand for its Services, which lag rest of the Industry by a Generation, on the other. BSNL is obliged to continue to provide the Services in Rural Areas which were provided with Capital as well as operational Subsidy under USO Fund  Schemes, even after the period of Subsidy expires, and the Services continue to be Financially non-viable. It is important to note that challenge of Financial viability is not restricted to Wire line Services only. BSNL provides mobile telephone Services also  in Rural and remote locations in Border States and North East Region by incurring huge cost of more than 150 Crore towards IDR Bandwidth and VSAT charges.

Whereas a long term solution in terms of assured access to adequate Capital resources needs to be evolved, continuing the arrangements for funding of viability gap in rural operations needs to be ensured for financial viability of BSNL’s operations and its continued relevance in Indian Telecom Services Segment. BSNL received last support for its rural Wire line operations installed before the introduction of USO funded Schemes, for a period upto July 2013. The Rural Wire line Network Infrastructure and Exchanges continue to be maintained by BSNL regularly, and the existence of this infrastructure has enabled Government in realizing the objectives of providing affordable access to Broadband Services to Rural India, through Bharat Net Work. Whereas the deficit on account of Maintenance of this Infrastructure being borne by BSNL is not only draining its Financial resources, the quantum of loss in its Books of Accounts is also impairing its capacity to raise fresh Capital from Banks and Financial Institutions. As on date BSNL borrowed around Rs.24,000 Cr from Banks.

 

The matter of subsidy for Rural Wire line operation of BSNL has been under constant pursuance with Member(Finance) and Officers of DoT by the GS, AIBSNLEA for the last one year. BSNL Management has also pursuing the issue with the Joint Secretary(Admin), USOF Administrator,  Member Finance and other Officers of DoT time and again through various meetings  but the deficit in Rural Wire line operation for FY 2014-15 to 2019-20 to the tune of Rs.13789 Cr. ( As per the Audited statement of Accounts of BSNL) has not been   reimbursed till date.

 

 

BSNL is facing severe Financial Crisis and not able to pay even Salary in time, for the past 20 months, Electricity Bills, Towers Rent, Vehicle Running Expenses, SAB benefits, Fuel Expenses, Contractual Labour Bills, Payment to Vendors, Telecom Infra Service Providers and Local Cable TV Operators etc. It has caused serious demoralization and frustration among all the concerned. The OPEX, CAPEX, Statutory and other accumulated Liabilities are also pending for more than Rs.12,800 Crore and it is likely to increase in the months to come.

 

BSNL is not able to meet even its fund requirement for monthly salary due to heavy dip in Cash inflow for the past 20 months. Cash flow for the month of Apr’2021 was Rs.1400 Cr. whereas it is reduced to Rs.1000 Cr during May’2021 (i.e 29% decrease) and likely to continue in June’2021 also due to Pandemic situation. But our monthly Operating Expenditure is around Rs.9000Cr.

Further, the gap between monthly revenue and bare expenses to continue operations as a growing concern has reached a level where continuing with BSNL operations could be nearly impossible without immediate infusion of adequate liquidity

 

Matter has been further aggravated by the Second wave of Covid-19 pandemic due to which BSNL has to extend the Pay by date of the bills receivable from its Customers leading to delay in collections. Many of our employees have got infected by the Virus leading to exponential increase in Medical Expenses. Sufficient funds are not available with BSNL to meet its liabilities. Adequate funds for even the salary of June’ 2021 are not expected to be available due to the impact of lockdown and delay in collections. Help from DoT by releasing the above amount would provide the much needed support to BSNL at this stage, especially in view of the present pandemic.

So in the present Scenario, DoT has to release the long pending outstanding dues amounting to Rs.29,540/- Cr to BSNL  so that BSNL can tide over the current acute financial crises and meet its obligations.

Hence the need of the Hour is all the Unions and Associations of BSNL should join together and unitedly fight and demand  DoT for the immediate release of long pending outstanding dues amounting to Rs.29,540/- Cr to BSNL so as to disburse the Salary of BSNL Employees in time and payment of other pending bills by BSNL due to the present pandemic situation . <<<Click here for letter>>>

GS AIBSNLEA suggested that if the Committee of the BSNL is functioning as a Facilitator and bargain with the Govt. Insurance Companies like National Insurance Company, New India Assurance Company, Oriental Health Insurance and United India Insurance Company, we will get comparatively lower Premium Rates and the Premium amount can be deducted from the Employees’ Salary and can be remitted to the Insurance Company by the BSNL Management as in the case of GTI Scheme.

Sr.GM(Admin)  positively responded and assured that the Management will implement the Scheme very shortly after getting approval from the Competent Authority.

08-01-2021 : CHQ news

GS AIBSNLEA, AGS and CHQ-Auditor met Shri P.K. Purwar CMD, BSNL and discussed regarding:

 

a) E-Tender for Planning, Engineering, Supply, Installation, Testing, Commissioning and AMC of 4G Mobile Net Work : We enquired the CMD BSNL about the recent Detailed Notice Inviting E-Tender issued on 01.01.2021, sought proposal through the (EOI) Expression Of Interest from the Indian Companies for Planning, Engineering, Supply, Installation, Testing, Commissioning and AMC of 4G Mobile Net Work.

 

CMD, BSNL mentioned that as per the approval of DoT on 29.12.2020, BSNL Board has approved the proposal immediately and issued Tender Notification inviting proposal through EOI for the procurement of Equipments, AMC etc., for the tentative 57,000 4G Sites with prior Registration and Proof of Concept (POC) from the Indian Companies interested in participating the upcoming 4G Tender as per the initiative of GOI ÁTAMNIRBHAR BHARAT’ to promote Indigenous Manufacturing in Telecom Sector on 01.01.2021. CMD further mentioned that the Bidder or its Consortium Member(s) should fulfill the Technical Proven-ness requirement i.e, experience of Planning, Engineering, Supply, Installation and Commissioning. The Bidder not fulfilling Technical Proven-ness requirement shall be eligible for upcoming 4G Tender if they complete the POC successfully against this EOI.

 

CMD further told that through this E-tender Notification by Mass Media the message has gone to the nook and corner of India “that BSNL is going to launch 4G services shortly” and hopes that things will be changed in the positive direction very soon.

 

b) BSNL has to manage MTNL Mobile Net work on outsourcing basis: We enquired about the financial assistance, if any, will be given to BSNL by the Govt. to maintain MTNL Mobile Net Work in Delhi & Mumbai.  We told CMD that we have to invest very huge amount (CAPEX) to put back the MTNL Net Work in order and we have to insist Financial Assistance from the Govt., since BSNL itself is struggling for maintaining its own Mobile Net Work due to heavy financial crunch. CMD, BSNL informed that we have to wait for another one month for completing the formalities and then only we will assess the situation and our Targets.

 

c) Free Corona Vaccine to BSNL Employees treating them as Frontline workers: CMD BSNL mentioned that he has already gone through the letter given by AIBSNLEA in this regard and appreciated our concern for writing such a letter in the interest of BSNL Workers with a copy to Hon’ble Minister for Health and Family Welfare. He assured that he will take up the issue with the Secretary (H&FW) through Secretary (T). <<<Click Here FOR GS LETTER>>>

 

d) Compensation and Financial Assistance to the family members of deceased BSNL Employees due to Covid-19: We requested CMD BSNL to consider the Compensation and Financial Assistance to the family members of deceased BSNL Employees due to Covid-19, AIBSNLEA has taken up and requesting for the past 6 months. CMD BSNL mentioned that the proposal was discussed in the BSNL Board Meeting in length but not considered due to heavy financial crunch.

 

e) Non remittance of SAB recovered from monthly Salary of  Apr’ 2020 to Nov’ 2020: We brought to the notice of CMD that SAB benefits in respect of DRs of BSNL recovered from the monthly Salary of Apr’2020 to Nov’2020 has not been remitted to the Concern Authorities, resulting in non receipt of Pensionery benefits by the Retired Officials. CMD assured to look in to the matter.

 

f) Restructuring and Regular Promotion in all the Cadres: GS appraised the CMD BSNL that thousands of Executives already drawing Higher Scales are working in the entry level grade of JTO equivalent and waiting for their 1st Promotion for the years together. Likewise SDE(T)/ SDE(C/E/TF/Arch)/ AOs/ CCS/ PS cadres are waiting for their regular promotions since long. The Promotions are held up by the Management in the name of Restructuring and various Court Cases on Reservation & Seniority issues. AIBSNLEA has continuously pursuing and requesting the BSNL Management for the issuance of Regular Promotion” Orders in all Cadres of all the Streams. We categorically told that AIBSNLEA strongly oppose any look-after arrangement in higher grade but we demand immediate promotions on ‘Regular Basis’.

 

CMD mentioned that restructuring proposal is likely to be finalized shortly and presented to the BSNL Board for Approval. CMD further told that Management is ready to consider the Promotions in all the Cadres but due to Hurdles created by filing cases in various Courts, Management is facing problems and not in a position to issue Promotion orders in a timely manner and dead lock is continued.

 

g) Discrimination in consideration of request transfers of Accounts Personnel: We brought to the kind attention of CMD that request transfers in respect of Accounts Personnel has not been considered  by the Management for the past 7 months in the name of Restructuring,  whereas request transfers have been considered in all other cadres. We also explained CMD BSNL about the problems being faced by the Accounts Personnel without family in other Circles for more than 3 years due to Covid-19 and requested him to consider the cases on Humanitarian grounds and issue necessary instructions to the concerned Authorities for issuance of transfer orders. CMD after patient hearing advised us to take up the issue with Director (Fin)/Director (HR) and also assured to looked into.

 

h) Compassionate Appointment to the family members of deceased BSNL Employees due to Covid-19: CMD BSNL mentioned that the proposal was discussed in the BSNL Board Meeting but not considered due to heavy financial crunch.

 

 i) Financial Status of the Company and benefits of Tower Company: CMD BSNL mentioned that the Company is earning Operating Profit (EBITDA positive) in the first half of the F.Y 2020-21 i.e., after 5 years and revenue is slightly increasing. We requested CMD for the disbursement of monthly Salary on the last day of the month. CMD told that our day to day Cash flow is not sufficient for our Operation and Maintenance and this year 2021 also BSNL will face severe financial crunch, since in addition to monthly/quarterly expenditure of Salary, O&M expenditure, Bank Interest, GST,TDS, L.Fee and Spectrum Charges etc., also BSNL is having Liability to pay Rs.3000 Cr to DoT Vendors in respect of Advance received for Bharat Net Projects. In addition to that BSNL is not yet getting any Loan from Banks for CAPEX on the basis of Sovereign Guarantee Bonds or fledging of Monetized Assets till date.

 

Regarding Tower Company CMD mentioned that BSNL earn several hundred Crores due to non remittance of L.Fee w.r.t. AGR but BSNL is getting very good revenue from the External Projects of Civil & Electrical Wing from Odisha, H.P and other Circles for which separate Escrow Account is being maintained.

CMD requested that each and every employee should work hard to increase our day to day collection/Revenue and follow the Austerity measures instructions issued by BSNL CO scrupulously to control over the Expenditure. We assure CMD BSNL that AIBSNLEA is always support the Management for the betterment of BSNL and finally requested the CMD BSNL to consider the Promotions in all the Cadres so as to boost the morale of the Young Executives in BSNL.

Wrong recovery of Overpayment from 2010 departmental 40% JAO quota AOs.

The whole avoidable process starts at Circle Office, may be, by a misinterpretation of the contents envisaged in the corporate office letter dated 14-01-2020. It says only to recover amount overpaid due to any wrong fixation of pay done to 2010 departmental JAOs. The instance cases referred in the letter are the cases where fixation was given from the date of promotion of JAO as per clause 3.6 of the Non executives’ pay revision order circulated vide letter No. 1-16/2010-PAT (BSNL) Dated 07- 05-2010. In many circles, the option (as per 3.6) was considered and pay was fixed on 2010 itself counting the officiating period of JAO and continue to draw the pay and allowed increment thereby before its regularization by Corporate Office letter dated 24- 07-2015  .

 

The CGMT Kerala extended a very patient hearing on the matter and CGMT convinced the unfortunate note of circle office . CGMT directed IFA Kerala circle to calculate due drawn for all the affected Accounts officers in connection with Option for 2nd PRC in 2015. If any arrears it would not be extended as per CO guidelines and if any net excess amount paid, it would be recovered.

 

AIBSNLEA Kerala circle extends sincere regards to CGMT  Shri. C.V  Vinod for his timely intervention and having taken a very fair decision on the matter according to BSNL guidelines.

Notice for the 7th Circle Conference  - On Line - of AIBSNLEA Kerala Circle

.

12-10-2020

CS Com.Shaji , CFS Com.Biju Gopal , CVP Com.Rajan and DS TCR Com. Aneesh  Antony  had a pre-appointed meeting on 08-10-2020 with the CGMT Kerala Shri. C.V  Vinod . The meeting started around 4.45 PM and extended up to 6.45 PM. We discussed the following matters.

 

Include FTTH count also to the total DEL count:

The DEL calculated for LL: 1 , BB : 1.5 and Leased Line :2 . Being ARPU of FTTH is heavier than BB and as FTTH lines being added in an exponentially increasing way, DEL count for FTTH is mandatory for justification of the Executives’ post in BSNL. If we will not consider the FTTH DEL count as BB customers are switching to FTTH , the geographical seize of clusters will increase and the  number of clusters will  shrunk badly affecting performance of BA .

 

As on 30-09-2020 BSNL Kerala has 1, 38,647 FTTH Connections. Most of the customers are migrated BSNL BB Customers. The proportional DEL value is more than that in 2 or 3 BAs. We requested CGMT to take FTTH DEL count as 2 while fixing cluster seize. CGMT shared our concern and replied that surely he would take up the concern to corporate office.

 

Distribution plan of SDE/JTO and AO/JAOs

We expressed our concern on showing surplus 30 executives in Accounts/Finance vertical in Kerala. We shared our concern on the non counting of the posts of officers (AO/JAO) working very effectively in CSCs. AO/JAO can effectively distributed for marketing. CGMT assured to consider all these suggestions till Corporate Office instruct differently.

 

BSNL can Eruct 4” GI Pipe for extending FTTH connections in feasible locations :

As of now BSNL and N/E LCOs extend OFC for FTTH through non-BSNL poles in almost all areas. KSEB already informed in black and white to remove our cables to reduce the overload of their poles. Understandably Rs.400 / Rs.200 are the rent per pole per year for KSEB in urban/rural areas. BSNL can freely do FTTH business by erecting sufficient GI poles coast @Rs 1500 per pole and the ROI can be earned within 2/3 years in terms of rent from E/N LCOs. We requested CGMT to consider the case with deserved merit as the CFA sector migrating to FTTH business especially on the fact that BSNL starting to extend any LL Directory number with FTTH line.  CGMT appreciate our concern and assured to look into the matter.

 

Online attendance : frustration and morale demotion of executives working round the clock for BSNL

Most of the officers working in Transmission, BSS and other similar fields are discharging their duties till late night rather round the clock. They are certainly humiliated on many days to attend office @9.30AM to mark online attendance after attending faults in late nights. They are not getting enough rest and leads to health issues and reduction of efficiency. It is badly affecting the output. Provisions may be extended to adjust the morning reporting time with the last day's attendance Mark-Off time. If exit time is more than 6 hours late than the normal exit time, their next day's attendance may be allowed to mark as duty off with the approval of controlling officer. Or, instead, flexibility in reporting duty shall be extended to the affected officials on a balanced way.

CGMT appreciated the hard working executives and non-executives carrying out extra efforts for the benefits of BSNL even after office hours. Further, CGMT suggested online attendance is a free matter of choice between these officials and their controlling officers. Everyone in this sector can invariably use Mob App for marking attendance. We appreciate the concern of CGMT Kerala.  

 

Immediate filling of  DGM/AGM and DGM/CAO  in Kerala Circle as per the direction of Restructuring cell of BSNL Corporate office ( File No. 4-02/2014-Restg Vol.V (Pt.) dated 27-08-2020)

We requested to fill up all the vacant posts in DGM/AGM /CAO cadres in Kerala as per the instructions.  We reminded CGMT that the new plan of DGM/CAO vacancies in Kerala exactly matches with the suggestion and subsequent letter submitted by AIBSNLEA Kerala . CGMT assured to do the postings accordingly

GS writes to Shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL requesting to issue necessary instructions/guidelines to all concerned for plugging the extraordinary slips in the growing up FTTH Sector for BSNL through N/E LCOs to avert turns which may open up Pandora Box resulting in nail-biting situations to BSNL....

AIBSNLEA CHQ received feedback from many of the Circle Secretaries & Field Units that wide spared anguish are being reported by many of the BSNL FTTH Customers connected through N/E LCOs that Voice quality is not there, unpleasant noise while on hook, one-way speech etc. etc.,

On behalf of AIBSNLEA, we submitted our suggestions & views that:

 

*Quality of both “Voice” and “Data” may be ensured...

*AT procedure for BSNL OLTs may be extended to non-BSNL OLTs also...

*Authenticity of address for FTTH provision by LCOs may be cross checked...

*As per the constraints in allotment of VLAN-ID for Voice Service, chance of disguised fraudulent voice calls prevails in FTTH Service. Any Directory number can be configured from any other ONT. This may be arrested by providing password changing options to the Customers. This can be implemented through NIB Nodes...

Dear Friends!

It is very surprising to note that so many claimants are there for the recently released outstanding SAB payments from Sept, 2019 to Jan, 2020 and it is very ridiculous to see that mud sliding and Website war is going on even after the completion of the 2nd MV in some Association's sites, which is not a healthy trend for the interest and Welfare of the BSNL Executives and BSNL. We, on behalf of AIBSNLEA wish to inform you all that AIBSNLEA is the only Association taken up the issue with the BSNL Management continuously, by writing letters and persuasion with CMD BSNL, Director (Finance), Director (HR) & Sr.GM (CBB) Corporate Office from time to time and due to consistent and dedicated efforts of AIBSNLEA, the outstanding SAB benefits has been finally released. Please go-through the AIBSNLEA CHQ website for the letters written and issues taken up with the BSNL Management in this regards.

Meeting with CMD BSNL:

Today  GS and AGS AIBSNLEA  met CMD BSNL Shri P.K. Purwar and discussed regarding:

1) Special Insurance Coverage for the BSNL employees who are maintaining essential Telecom Services throughout India against COVID-19 and Financial Assistance/Compensation to the bereaved family members of BSNL Employees, who expired due to Covid-19: We requested the CMD BSNL for the immediate extension of the Special Insurance Coverage of Rs.50 lakh to the BSNL employees who are maintaining essential Telecom Services throughout India against COVID-19 as suggested by AIBSNLEA during the month of April 2020 and we also impressed upon the CMD BSNL that due to non-payment of Medical claim reimbursement bills for indoor treatment to the Hospitals, our Executives and Non-Executives are being facing problems for admission in the Approved Hospitals for cashless treatment for Corona as well as other treatments.

CMD BSNL mentioned that due to heavy financial crunch in BSNL, BSNL Management is not in a position to extend the Special Insurance Coverage to the BSNL Employees. However, CMD mentioned that as per the suggestions of AIBSNLEA, BSNL Management has already written to DoT during the month of May,2020 itself for the extension of Financial support to BSNL so as to pay the Compensation to the bereaved family members of BSNL Employees. GS AIBSNLEA has written the letter in this regard to the BSNL Management  in the Month of April' 2020 itself. <<<Click here for GS letter dt 14.04.2020>>>

He assured that he will personally take up the issue again with the Secretary (T) and Member (Finance) DoT for getting the Financial support for the Compensation to the bereaved family members of BSNL Employees, who expired due to Covid-19. We handed over the reminder Letter addressed to CMD BSNL in this regard. <<<CLICK Here for Letter>>>

(2) Fixing the Time Line for Monthly Salary disbursement: We requested the CMD BSNL to fix the time line for the disbursement of monthly salary on the last working day of the concerned month since the Net Salary expenditure is estimated around Rs.425 Cr and BSNL can very well manage the Net Salary Monthly expenditure from the monthly collection of around Rs.1350 Cr. CMD mentioned that now only Sovereign Guarantee approval has received from DoT and BSNL Management is proposed to release the Bonds before the end of September' 2020, then only our commitments towards Bank etc., will be reduced and opined that after this process only BSNL Management may be in a position to pay the monthly salary in time.

We requested the CMD to release at least August, 2020 salary in the last week of August 2020 due to the “Onam” Festival. CMD mentioned that we are not having sufficient funds for the disbursement of August Salary since July salary was paid on 20th August, 2020.

 

(3) Immediate promotions to all the Grades and Streams considering the post VRS Scenario: We requested to conduct the CPCs immediately for the promotion in the Cadres of:

(a) JTO(T) to SDE(T)

(b) JTO(C/E/TF/Arch) to SDE(C/E/TF/Arch)

(c) SDE(T) to DE(T)

CMD mentioned that due to 2nd MVP the Promotion issue was not considered and he assured to consider the Regular Promotions in all the Cadres at the earliest.

(4) Discrepancies in the Provisional Seniority list No.9 of SDE(T) for DE(T) Promotions: We have brought to the notice of CMD about the discrepancies observed in the Provisional Seniority list No.9 of SDE(T) for the promotion of DE(T) issued by the Pers branch on 10.8.2020 and we categorically mentioned that the provisional Seniority List 9 is not prepared purely on the basis of the date of joining in accordance with the judgment pronounced by Hon’ble Supreme Court. But it is prepared on Date of Joining within the vacancy Year.

We further explained the CMD that the SDE(T) RR 2002 Amendment (That is Modification/addition/deletion in SDE(T) RR 2002) circulation dated 08-May-2018 as in Annexure 8 – “the Inter-se Seniority of the officers promoted against Seniority Quota (SQ-67%) and those who are promoted through LDCE/LICE quota (CQ-33%) against the particular vacancy year shall be fixed in the ratio of 2:1 irrespective of the year of appointment/date of joining”. “This Modification applicable with effect from 28/08/2015”only. Any RR amendment is applicable from that date (that is Prospective in nature) but not on retrospectively. CMD assured to look into the matter.

Meeting with Director (Finance) BSNL Board:

Today GS and AGS, AIBSNLEA met Director (Finance) and discussed regarding:

(1) Disbursement of Monthly Salary on due date in every month: We expressed our serious concern regarding the non-disbursement of monthly Salary on due date. We appraised that after VRS, our monthly Salary expenditure has been reduced to 50%, the Net salary works out to Rs.425 cr. only, but BSNL Management is not able to disburse the monthly salary in time and every month it is getting delayed almost 20 days. We requested Director (Finance) to stream line the timely payment of Salary in every month.

Director (Fin) informed that we have cleared almost all our liabilities and trying to update all the pending liabilities also. We have obtained the moratorium for Bank Loan/Interest also for 6 months during Covid-19 which is due to be paid during the month of Sept., 2020. Further, BSNL has received the approval for Sovereign Guarantee and BSNL Management is proposing to issue the Bonds up to the last week of Sept., 2020. By the issue of Bonds Management is expecting at least Rs.4250 Cr. and we may manage the salary in time with in next three-four months.  

 

(2)   Extension of option for Pay Fixation in respect of JAOs (Departmental) (10% Quota) of 2010 Batch: Director (Fin) informed that the Committee recommendation in this regard has been accepted and approved by the Competent Authority and assured that the formal orders will be issued with in a couple of days. AIBSNLEA has taken up this issue continuously for so many years and finally there is a ray of hope that is we are seeing the light at the end of the Tunnel since we are expecting the fruitful results shortly for our consistent and sincere efforts.

 

(3) Consideration of request transfers in the Cadre of Accounts Personnel: We requested Director (Fin) to consider the request transfers in the Cadre of AOs and CAOs since they have already completed more than 30 months service in the present Circle and requested for transfer to their Home Circles to join with their family. We also impressed upon the Director (Fin) that our Accounts Personnel are facing so much problems due to Covid-19 in other than their Home Circles and further requested to consider the transfer requests on Humanitarian Grounds. Director (Fin) immediately discussed over phone with PGM (Pers) to process the transfer requests on priority basis including the requests received from Accounts Personnel of BSNL Corporate Office. PGM (Pers) replied that the cases are processed and order will be issued shortly after getting necessary approval.

(4) Request for Withdrawal of letter issued on the  presumption of Telangana  Circle regarding  the wrong  Pay fixation done against first up-gradation under Executive Promotion Policy (EPP) for the JAOs of 1999 Batch by DGM Vigilance of CGMT, TS Circle: We impressed upon the Director (Fin) that the issue was discussed with  Dir(HR), DIR(Fin), PGM(Pers), Sr.GM(Estt),  GM(EF) and DGM (Pers) in detail several times with relevant orders/clarifications issued by the DoT, Pers & SEA Branch of BSNL CO, but even after a lapse of five months, the issue has not been resolved. To our surprise, TS Circle has revised the Pay fixation of Account Officers (JAOs 1999 batch) who are presently working in BSNL as well as who opted for BSNL VRS-2019 and wrongly ordered for recovery of Overpayment to the tune of Rs.7 Lakh to 12 Lakh and stall the regularization process (Pension & retirement benefits) of VRS optees in a biased and arbitrary manner with ulterior motive on the basis of frivolous complaint, which is against the Natural justice. We requested Director (Fin) to issue necessary directions to withdraw the arbitrary orders of reducing the Pay of aggrieved JAOs of 1999 batch. Director (Fin) immediately spoken to Director (HR) over phone and requested to resolve the issue on priority basis since the issue is pending at Pers branch for a petty long time. <<<Click here for GS letter reminder III >>>

In this regard, GS AIBSNLEA discussed with Director (HR) at 19.00 hrs. and requested to issue the necessary orders immediately. Director (HR) after discussing with PGM (Pers) over phone assured to issue the direction shortly.
