CS , CP , CVP and DS TVM met PGM-F Kerala Circle Shri.KK Vel  on 7-12-2017 and discussed all the pending HR issues of accounts fraternity

 

The Long Pending increment Preponement of 1999 JAO batch officers:

We expressed discontent in non-settling of the issue so far. PGM informed that the matter is recommended and forwarded to CGMT on the prolonged request of AIBSNLEA . We extended sincere thanks in initiating  the very long pending issue , which has been settled by all other circles very long ago, for favourable settlement   . Later CS & CP requested CGMT Kerala also to settle the long pending issue favourably as done in other circles   . CGMT Kerala was very positive and assured to settle down the matter. We expect favourable orders shortly.

 

Training of 6 JAOs

As we have informed on 23-11-2017 , the training schedule is released . We extended profound thanks on scheduling Phase-I training of these candidates as assured to this association

 

Result declaration of 5 JAO candidates

We expressed  dissatisfaction on non-declaration of results for  5 vacancies arose against the JAO VY 2015-16 . PGM informed that as per corporate office latest letter only one vacancy can be considered as the clear vacancy due to the declining of one JAO candidate and   the other 4 vacancies were generated  due to the option of  Phase-I completed JAOs to JTOs .  As per latest SEA section order No.4-22/2013-SEA dated 01-12-2017 the vacancies can be counted against the candidates who have qualified the exam successfully but declined to join the post of JAOs. But we argued that the same letter provisioned an opportunity for the remaining 4 vacancies also by the wording  and there are still some vacancies left out “ . Later we met DGM(HR) and AGM(HR/Recr) Shri. Mahesh to reconsider the matter . They informed that as per latest SEA section letter,  circle office will declare result of one vacancy and our request will also be considered after the result declaration for one vacancy.

 

Harassment to JAOs effectively  maintaining CSCs by SDE(T) as controlling officers

We requested to initiate righteous actions to stop harassment by SDE to JAO subordinate. We quoted an example of the same with Kottakkal CSC in Malappuram BA .  We further requested to protect the morale and efficiency of the young JAOs from the intimidation of SDE controlling officer without delay for the sake of healthy office performance  . Moreover we  requested either accord the administrative control of the JAO to an AO or shift the JAO from CSC to a JTO. PGM listened all our wordings and assured to take up the matter at concerned levels for a positive outcome.

 

Filling of AO/CAO vacancies

We expressed our displeasure on non filling of the vacancies all along Kerala . The LA arrangements are being given to the eligible candidates without any financial engagements to BSNL . Thus, it is a way of motivating the executives. Negating LA provisioning against existing vacancies cannot be appreciated .  PGM shared our concern and suggested the same is his opinion  . He assured to look into the matter .

 

Transfer request of JAO/AOs to parent BA

We requested to consider the request transfers to parent BA especially for those who are retiring within two years . He appreciated our concern and replied that he can’t violate the presidency followed in Kerala circle of completing two years for transfer to parent BA . He further mentioned in Palakkad BA , so many young  JAOs leaving BSNL to other departments created acute shortage  of accounts wing.

Meeting with PGM (Pers) BSNL CO

GS, President, FS, AGS(HQ) and AGS (Finance) met PGM(Pers) and discussed regarding CPSU cadre Hierarchy implementation in BSNL. PGM (Pers) informed that the draft proposal prepared by Pers cell has been approved by Management Committee of BSNL Board and has been sent to CGM (Legal) to put up in the next BSNL Board Meeting for approval. He appraised that some suggestions/ views given by AIBSNLEA have been considered i.e. Designation of Jt. DGM in E-5 Grade as per Khan Committee report, bench marks on numeric basis and some relaxation to SC/ST candidates in bench marks etc. he further mentioned that cut-off date of implementation has remained 01.01.2017 and MT recruitment will take place as per existing MT RRs.

He mentioned that he has informed about the discussions held with all the Executive Associations to the Management Committee and thereafter he has taken the approval. We strongly opposed the MT recruitment as STS level, SDE to DE equivalent promotions within 7 years instead of 12 years and demanded cut-off date as reference to next promotions from the date of last CPC. PGM(Pers) during discussions told that initially Pers. Cell proposal was up to Sr. SDE to make functional Promotions on time bound manner but with the persuasion of AIBSNLEA the competent authority directed them to make the proposal up to AGM level and now again some modifications in the earlier draft proposal have been made on the suggestion given by AIBSNLEA. However, we will discuss the matter to CMD BSNL and Director (HR) to appraised our concern in this regard.

We humbly request our Kerala Circle Management to extend this HR friendly /motivating approach further to improve efficiency of Kerala Circle.

 

Dear Comrades , we wish to re-post the content we have posted on 23-11-2017

...Eyewash of Super Heroes Continues...

It is learned that the so called majority association , during their campaign this week at RTTC , collected choice posting request  from  the ongoing JTO trainee batches ( VY 2015-16) at RTTC Trivandrum by assuring that they will strive hard to get parent BA/Choice  posting to all the trainees for JTO Posting.  But , the fact is that as per the demand of AIBSNLEA, Kerala  already the file is mooted to post all the LICE candidates at their Parent BAs in the last week itself . AIBSNLEA Kerala once again intervened at DGM(HR) level  in last week for the consideration  of request from some of the trainee comrades whose parent BAs are not the currently working BA and we requested to wait till the individual request formally reach to circle office from RTTC Trivandrum. DGM(HR) aprreciated the suggestion and apparently, file is turned back to AGM(HR) for the consideration of individual request also .

DGM(HR) aprreciated the suggestion and apparently, file is turned back to AGM(HR) for the consideration of individual request also .

 

On Tuesday (22/11/2017) CS and CVP met AGM (HR) after meeting GM(HR/Admin)  and assess the progress . AGM(HR)  informed the file is with him and as and when the individual requests from RTTC reach  , he will escalate the file to CGMT by considering the requests. Since the request from RTTC not reached till 22/11/2017 , we called DE(TM) RTTC and informed the reaching of the requests are delayed from RTTC . Further it is assured the requests will be available to AGM(HR) on the very next day.

 

Being this as fact   it is laughable to watch another associations’ ruckus   to pocket the credit, as usual , of posting LICE JTOs to choice places

 

Status of releasing training of pending JAO Training for 6 Candidates(reservation)

Due to the consistent effort of AIBSNLEA , the request for date of JAO Phase_I  training is available with NATFM . We expect the release of training schedule within a week time . CHQ also took up the case for the early release of training dates.

 

Status of pending  result declaration for 5 JAO candidates

CS and CVP met  GM(A/HR) and discussed the matter in detail .  We requested to release the result of all the 5 resultant vacancies as done by other circle. In addition to the one candidate not joined for JAO training, 4 more JAO vacancies aroused due to the discontinuation of JAOs to JTO cadre. GM(A/HR) totally shared our view and assured to look into the matter.

Meeting with Addl. Secretary (Telecom), DoT:

GS and President along with the GS and President of AIRBSNLEWA met Addl. Secretary (T), DoT and discussed regarding:

A Implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL: We requested for implementation of 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL as per the BSNL Board’s decision which is already sent to DoT for approval and issuance of Presidential Directives. AST mentioned that the BSNL’s proposal on 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL is being processed. During the discussions, the AST was responsive.

 

B Payment of Pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale: We requested to consider payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale. AST mentioned that the BSNL’s proposal in this regard was considered and decided that DoT can not recommend payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay scale to DoE in view of the fact the pension contribution paid by BSNL for their employees is on different substantive grade pay scales and thereafter the employee is being retired in higher scale. So initially the pension contribution was paid in lesser amount to DoT DoT as per the lower scale. We further pleaded that the 6th CPC in the year 2006 had recommended pension contribution to be taken on actual basic pay of the employee. In view of that, it should be considered on actual basic but AST was firm on his decision.

 

Meeting with Hon’ble MoSC (I/C), Govt. of India:

GS, President, FS and AGS (HQ) met Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) Shri Manoj Sinha Ji and submitted a memorandum requesting implementation of 3rd recommendations in BSNL with full 15% fitment benefit.  We further requested him that BSNL Board has already approved that proposal on implementation of 3rdPRC recommendations in BSNL and has sent the proposal to DoT for approval wherein your kind intervention is required in getting exemption on the affordability clause from Govt. We also quoted the example of FCI which is also a Govt. converted PSU and was formed with a specific agenda and exempted from the affordability clause. Similarly, BSNL should also be exempted from the affordability clause since it was also formed from 1.10.2000 with a specific agenda on the basis of NTP-1999 to provide Telecom Services to the customers on affordable rates and to ensure national security. Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) appreciated our concern and mentioned that they are communicating BSNL Board shortly in this regard.

Meeting with PGM(Pers) , BSNL CO on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy

GS, President, AGS (HQ), AGS (FIN ) and AGS (DR) met with PGM (Pers.) and discussed about  proposed Draft CPSU cadre hierarchy. PGM (Pers.) initiated the discussion by reiterating the MC direction that CPSU proposal is being discussed with associations to make policy more employee and organisation centric. We told that response submitted by AIBSNLEA contains para wise suggestions, by considering them Policy can be made beneficial for both employee and organisation.

We reiterated our stand that all pending CPCs should be completed and promotion orders should be issued before implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy and priority should be given to conduct CPCs first to fill up all the vacant post of Group- 'A' and Group-' B'. Pers. cell need to take legal opinion wherever required, to break the stalemate in promotions in various cadres as per DOP&T guidelines on SC/ST rosters implementation. 

PGM (Pers.) assured to work out some way to complete the CPCs processes and issue promotion orders and simultaneously finalise the CPSU Hierarchy. 

We strongly opposed the MT recruitment provision at STS level in the CPSU cadre hierarchy. PGM (Pers.) told that management trainee is need of the organisation. We mentioned that  AIBSNLEA will never accept MT at STS level. We categorically told that MT recruitment at STS level will block the career prospects of all the existing executives  at JTO / JAO and SDE / AO level and they will retire at AGM level only. If management feels that BSNL need market talent then recruit MT in Sales, Marketing, HR and  Legal etc. at JTO/JAO level only. Engineering and Finance vertical are already having executives at JTO / JAO equivalent to Management Trainee. Along with this, If management feels that there is requirement at policy making level, BSNL may recruit higher management professionals at GM level with suitable experience and probation. 

We also opposed ignorance of length of service and seniority in proposed draft and increase of resend period for AGM grade from 7 years to 12 years. Residency period from SDE to AGM and equivalent cadre should be maximum 7 years only.

 

We suggested the benchmarks should be on basis of Khan Committee report and numeric based to avoid huge dropping.

 

We also suggested that implemention of date of CPSU Policy should be from the date of last CPC held in that cadre instead of 01.01.2017, otherwise it will not be beneficial to the  executives in the Cadre (s) having more than 20 years of service.

 

The executives already in E5 scales should be given the designation of Jt. DGM immediately as per Khan Committee report.

 

We suggested that before going to any final decision all cadre controlling authorities like Civil , Electrical , Arch, Finance, TF and CSS etc. should be consulted and taken care of their views / suggestions also.

 

We further suggested that Pers. cell may convene a joint meeting of all executive associations for more deliberation and making a consensus on CPSU policy which is more employee and organisation centric.

 

At last we requested PGM (Pers) that he should go through our view and suggestion with open mind to make CPSU Cadre hierarchy to become reality. He assured to apprise AIBSNLEA views to BSNL management committee for consideration.

Human Chain by all BSNL Unions and Associations will be organized on 23-11-2017(Thursday) for the implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit. Settlement of left out issues related to 2nd PRC and against creation of BSNL's Tower Subsidiary.

Meeting with PGM (Pers.) to discuss the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy proposal:

GS, President, AGS (HQ), AGS (Fin), and AGS (DR) had meeting with PGM (Pers.) on CPSU cadre hierarchy. The meeting was scheduled as per direction of the Management Committee of BSNL Board. GM (SR), Jt. GM (Pers) and DGM (Pers-II) were also present in the meeting.  AIBSNLEA submitted its detailed Para wise response to the draft policy approved by BSNL Management committee.

 

PGM (Pers) had apprised that purpose of the MC‘s direction to discuss with associations to make policy more employee and organization centric. He requested that AIBSNLEA should support the policy to break the stalemate in the promotions of executives in BSNL.

 

AIBSNLEA made it clear that we are never against the CPSU hierarchy rather we have been demanding it to implement in the true sense and as per Khan Committee recommendations.  We further clarified that our suggestions are to safe guard the interest of the entire executives and it will give value additions to it. In view of this Pers. Cell should carefully go through our views / suggestions with open mind without any prejudice. Then point by point discussion was held. 

 

While discussion, we strongly  opposed the MT recruitment, ignorance of  the weightage to seniority, reduction of sanctioned strength, increase in eligibility condition from of 7 to 12 years for the promotion of SDE/AO to DE /AGM/CAO, Time bound promotion in SG-JAG grade should be in E7 instead of E6 etc.

 

PGM (Pers) appreciated our concern in this regard and impress upon to consider MT Recruitment to full-fill the management requirement immediately but we categorically told that AIBSNLEA is firm on its stand and will not accept MT Recruitment at STS level which will block the career progression of executives. Today the meeting started at 15.00 hrs as per the schedule and continued till 18.00 hrs thereafter, PGM (Pers.) mentioned that he will study the submissions made by AIBSNLEA point by point and thereafter he will discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA again on 22nd and 23rd Nov, 2017.

BSNL Executive promotion Policy Amendment & Recruitment Rules, 2017

Pros and Cons

The pros and cons on implementation of the Draft Rectt./Promotion Rule,  proposing Time bound functional promotion upto AGM grade for all cadres / streams are as under:-.

1.2: The modified policy shall be implemented w.e.f. 01.01.2017:

Pros: The modified policy implementing w.e.f. 01.01.2017 will provide time bound functional promotion upto AGM level which will benefit the newly recruited executives, recruited after 2010.

Cons: The modified policy implementing w.e.f. 01.01.2017 will not give benefit to the senior executives in the cadre having more than 20 years of service which will cause frustration and discontentment among them. For example, one JTO recruited in the year 1995 and completed 21 years of service is still waiting his first functional promotion as a SDE and one JTO recruited in the year 2011 completed 5 years of service will get SDE promotion together.  No service weightage to the senior executive is ensured.    

 

1.3: On approval of the policy, all existing RR in the grade of SDE /equivalent will be treated as scrapped and MSRR 2009 will be modified to the extent that promotion of AGM/DE Grade in all the schedule-IA, IB, IC & ID shall be treated to be deleted. Remaining portion of MSRR shall be continued to be followed as per the existing provision. MT recruitment will continue as per the existing provision of Recruitment Rule of MT.

Pros: MT recruitment at STS level as per the existing provisions of recruitment rule of MT, It may help in filling up Top level SAG/HAG level post on fast track method through MTs of outside and inside quote.  Few of Group B level executives will also get a chance to become MT through this process.                                                

Cons: MT recruitment at STS level will block the career progression of Group B level executives as we have experienced in DOT setup through JTS OF ITS Grup A recruitment rules 1991. Where in one DR JTO of DOT used to retire as Adhoc DE after completing 37-38 years of service. The similar situation will develop in BSNL after the introduction of MT recruitment.                                  

 

1.4: Powers for relaxation/ modification/ amendment to these rules will vest with the Management committee of BSNL Board.

Pros: It will provide easy path to BSNL management to relax/modify/amendment to these rules with the approval of management committee of BSNL Board.

Cons: BSNL management, as its own or under the unforeseen pressures may any time relax/modify/amend these rules with the approval of BSNL MC which may be in the interest of executives or against. These rules are approved by the BSNL Board and cleared by DOT may not be allowed to BSNL management to make such provisions since the pension payment is being made by DOT.   

 

3.0: Authorized strength of the Service: The authorized strength of the executives in various cadre/stream shall be as per the provisional HR plan

Pros: As per Deloite recommendations the sanction posts of Group A and B level executives will be reduced the wage payment liability of BSNL through the proposed HR plan.                 

Cons: As per new HR plan based on Deloite recommendations the huge number of sanctioned posts of Group A and B will be reduced which will adversely affect the career progression of BSNL executives by way of stagnation due to non-availability of the posts. 

 

5.1: All the existing Executives up to AGM/DGM(Adhoc) shall continue to be considered  for financial up-gradation to the next higher scale upto E-6 scale on completion of 5 years of service from the date of placement in lower scale through conduction of CPC. The benchmarks considered for financial up-gradation shall be as per the prescribed provisions in the schedule. The new Benchmarks shall be applied to those executives whose financial up-gradations are due w.e.f. 01.01.2018.

Pros: The stringent benchmark will filtered the executives and the less number of executives will be promoted to the higher post to reduce to number.

Cons: The stringent benchmark will block the career prospect of majority executives thus the spirit of time bound promotion on functional basis to all executives will be defeated. Considering this, the benchmark proposed by Khan Committee was appropriate of functional promotions.

 

5.3 II: All the executives eligible for promotion for a vacancy year i.e. promotion under SCF, for which the result of the LDCE (other channel of promotion) has been issued and promotion order is pending, the promotion of executives of both the channel shall be considered deemed to have been promoted before 1.1.2017 and they shall be treated en-bloc senior to the executives promoted as per this Rule.

Pros: The promotion of executives of both the channel shall be considered deemed to have been promoted before 1.1.2017 and they shall be treated en-bloc senior to the executives promoted as per this Rule. It will depend upon the year to year vacancies.

Cons: The executives of LDCE quota appeared through a particular vacancy year will continue to claim their seniority along with the vacancies of SCF quota. It may invite litigations and derail the process.

 

12.0: The executive shall join the place of posting on promotion within 40 days of the issue of the order of promotion by BSNL CO. The period of 40 days may be extended in exceptional and deserving case, in the interest of service, where the Administrative requirement so demands with the approval of appointing authority. In case the Executives who are granted functional promotion but fails to join the promoted grade within the time or decline promotion, then Management reserves the right to forfeit his promotion and executive shall not be considered for functional promotion or financial up-gradation to higher scale for next one Year or next CPC whichever is later, from the date of deemed refusal (after 40 days) or from date of application of refusal.

Pros and Cons: If on promotion outside circle one is forced to refuse due to medical/ family issues, he will stagnate in his own pay scale as there is no financial upgradation. This type of situation should be relaxed and genuinely should be weighted.

 

16.0: New designations for Executives: In the Policy new Designation has been incorporated and shall hereafter be followed at all levels at H.Q./Circle/SSA etc.

Pros and Cons: Khan committee has no where suggested Sr. SDE as functional promotion and tightening the norms by deciding even one  "Average" as disqualification in promotion for JTO, SDE, Sr. SDE, DE cadres i.e. for the span of 20 years. We strongly submits that there is no need to alive the Sr. SDE cadre. By this inclusion the Executives will be derailed from their justified promotions and will be bound to remain in the same pay scale for 10 years, which is the violation of EPP. We strongly oppose such inclusion.

CPSU Cadre Hirarchy in BSNL:

The Majority Association is now busy in sugar-coating the quinine pill on behalf of the Management.

 

Anyone who will read the posting in the website of SNEA dated 5-11-2017 will certainly wonder whether it is a message from a trade union or management. The write-up resembles very much with the appeals generally posted by GM (SR) to console agitated employees.

It is claimed in the website that the draft proposal posted in our website is no way connected to the proposal approved by MC and informed that the full proposal will be posted by them once they receive it from management. This means that they are waiting the detrimental cadre hierarchy order to be approved and issued before circulation. Cowards Act. If they have courage let them come out and say which point in the draft proposal uploaded by us is wrong and what is the right. For what this hush hush is all about ?

 

It is propagated that the "promotion will be without fresh CPC and without delay". What's the meaning of fresh CPC and no delay. Will the present system of evaluating APAR and VC will be dispensed with. At present VC is valid for 3 months and CPC conducted for the eligible candidates. Then how delay can be avoided and there will be no need of fresh CPC.

 

Shamelessly it is written that " Khan Committee recommendation is implemented as it is 5-5-5 years except for benchmarks which are slightly tightened by the management." Khan committee has nowhere suggested Sr. SDE as functional promotion and tightening the norms by deciding even one  "Average" as disqualification in promotion for JTO, SDE, Sr SDE, DE cadres i.e. for the span of 20 years is "slightly tighting " in the eyes of the majority Association. What a desperation to cover the misdeeds of the Management.

 

The committee headed by Mr Khan, Ex. ED (NB) deliberated the issue on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy at length where all the executive Association has given there opinion. After taking opinion of all, the report was signed by all Associations including SNEA. Now what is the necessity and compulsion on part of SNEA to deviate from the report that too secretly and without discussion in any forum. Why SNEA is overactive to convince the executives about the good (?) points in the new proposal. CPSU Cadre Hierarchy is for executives who are qualified enough to understand themselves what is good and what is bad for them. They why this extra initiative? When EPP was drafted there was no need of secrecy and education. All Executives welcomed the scheme because it was good for them. Therefore without wasting the energy on preaching let the majority Association come out with the total scheme as they categorically mention the draft proposal uploaded by us is far from reality.

 

We appeal to the Majority Association please stop such actions to damage the entire executives cadre for may be some fringe benefit for some people.

Betrayal towards BSNL Executives on issue of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy :

*The CPSU Cadre Hierarchy (CCH) is secretly planned by SNEA with Pers. Cell of BSNL only for smooth implementation of DOT's order on E1 & E2 scales in BSNL at the cost of the executives career.*

The SNEA leadership while uploading the secretly planned CCH 
(They themselves admitted in same posting) never related the existing pay scales with the proposed Hierarchy. As in reality those are perfectly matching with the DOT's order E1 for JTO, E2 For SDE and that is the reason for which all this secrecy about.


Pl see how perfectly it is matched.
E1 - JTO/JAO (Dy Manager)
E2 - SDE/AO (Manager)
E3 - SrSDE/SrAO ( Sr Manager)
E4 - DE/CAO ( Asst. GM).
E5 - DGM 

Otherwise had the demand of SNEA E2 for JTO and E3 for SDE was genuine, they would have never agreed to such CCH proposal. Because in that situation the ideal proposal should have been:
E2 - JTO/JAO (Dy Manager)
E3 - SDE/AO (Manager)
E4 - SrSDE/SrAO ( Sr Manager)
E5 - DE/CAO ( Asst. GM).
E6 - DGM

But SNEA is all along opposing the cascading demand on all scales and demand only E2 for JTO and E3 for SDE which means if the same demand is achieved without cascading then in the proposed CCH the pay structure will be:


E2 - JTO/JAO (Dy Manager)
*E3 - SDE/AO (Manager)*
*E3 - SrSDE/SrAO ( Sr. Manager)*
E4 - DE/CAO ( Asst. GM).
i.e. 10 years in E3 scale in spite of a functional promotion in between.

*Conclusion : The executives of BSNL are put into a loose-loose situation with the proposed CCH. Either accept E1 for JTO and get next scale with each functional promotion or accept 10 years in E3 scale although functional promotion from Manager to Sr Manager*

*Other pertinent points like fast track promotion, benefits for SC/ST are also missing in the proposal*.

The issue of converting promotion to Sr SDE/Sr AO as functional promotion is of vital importance for the cadre. Earlier whenever this issue was deliberated in any forum, the decision was always against introduction of a functional grade between SDE/AO and DE/CAO. Now SNEA has given its consent for introduction of the functional grade Sr Manager. *Will they kindly inform the executive fraternity when and in which forum they deliberated and decided such vital issue. If deliberated then why they kept it secret from the entire community of Executives of BSNL.*

It is also interesting to note the attitude of AIGETOA leadership. As claimed by SNEA in their website, AIGETOA was also consulted while planning this secret CCH. If it is true how they gave consent to such system which is out and out detrimental to all the DRs of BSNL.

*Finally on the point of secrecy. We have earlier experience on management formulating detrimental orders / schemes secretly,. This is the first time we are seeing the Majority Assn. is also becoming a part of the secret mission for damaging the cadre which they represent*. 

*Remember only conspiracies are required to be kept secret, good plannings need not.*

Status on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy

Management Committee of BSNL Board has discussed & approved in principle the draft proposal submitted by PGM(Pers.) to BSNL Management Committee but BSNL Management Committee has advised Pers. Cell to have discussions & to take opinion of other executives' associations also mainly with AIBSNLEA before submitting the proposal to the BSNL Board for approval.

 

Majority Executive Association in coordination with PGM(Pers.) has formulated the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy draft proposal wherein the recommendations on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy by KHAN Committee has been diluted / distorted which is against the terms & conditions of the assurances given before absorption to BSNL executives. The GS Majority Executive Association was also one of the members of KHAN Committee who signed the recommendations & now deviated from that.

 

AIBSNLEA will protest against the such proposal which will harm the assured career progression.

CS  requested PGM_F Kerala Shri.KK Vel  to take steps in positive direction to declare vacancies of JAOs in Kerala in the light of the BSNL Corporate Office conveys approval for utilization of resultant vacancies arose due to declining of some candidates for the left out qualified candidates at Circle Level .

 

AIBSNLEA Kerala has been taking up the matter from the very beginning of this issue and many formal requests both in letter and in meetings were submitted at PGMF level . But ,  lastly circle office informed that as per the then direction of corporate office letter , circles  are not permitted to operate the LICE list to fill up remaining vacancies . Now due to the pressure of AIBSNLEA CHQ the very favourable letter is released. In Kerala a minimum of  5 (Five) vacancies are   estimated.

 

We sincerely congratulate GS AIBSNLEA for achieving this breakthrough while another association openly stands against accounts fraternity in many ways including their recent stand that “No more Junior  Accounts Officers is to be posted in BSNL”.
