Sr.GM (Estt) further assured to discuss the matter with the concerned DGM(Estt) for early settlement and advice us to explain the matter in detail to concern DGM(Estt.).
DE to DGM promotion:
AIBSNLEA is making sincere efforts for DE to DGM promotion to fill-up all vacant DGM posts on Adhoc basis. Accordingly Pers. Cell of BSNL CO has initiated the process of DE to DGM promotion by calling APAR and VCR. All the APAR/ VCRs of the eligible DEs have been received in Pers. Cell. The approval for conducting CPC from DE to DGM yet to be received by Pers. Cell from the competent authority. The seniority list of SDEs have been finalized by Pers. cell on the basis of rule 206 and has been submitted to the competent authority for approval. After the approval on SDE seniority list, the DE seniority list is finalized and will be submitted to the competent authority for approval. As per the direction given by Hon’ble CAT Chandigarh CPC will be expedited on finalization of DEs seniority list.
The CPC will be expedited after the approval of the competent authority on SDEs and DE seniority list only. Thus promotion orders from DE to DGM may be expected in the next week only.
Some associations is demanding DE to DGM promotion on regular basis ignoring the fact that the DGMs promoted on regular basis will not be governed by EPP and will be deprived from getting time bound promotion in E6 grade which is due in most of the cases in the month of October 2019. Most of the DEs are at present stagnated in the E5 grade, and on getting E6 grade under EPP they will be benefited by Two increments. In case these DGMs are promoted for regular basis then they will be govern by BSNL MSRR provisions only and will be entitled for next time bound promotion in E7 grade after 5 year as Jt. GM.
Thus these regularly promoted DGMs will be debarred to get benefit of Time bound promotion in E6 grade under EPP. The fact remains that most of the DGMs being promoted in CPC will retire within 5 years in the grade of E5 only. In this manner these executives will be getting two increment less in their pay as well as pensionery benefits.
Some Association is claiming that let these promotion order be issued on regular basis thereafter they will get modified /amended the BSNL MSRR / EPP provisions. It is pertinent to mentioned that this association is well aware of present ruling position then why they kept mum so far for amending the rules and how they are confident to get amended these rules immediately . it seems this association is interested to put these DGMs in Financial loss for their whole life for which reasons are best known to them. AIBSNLEA knowing all these facts is demanding DGM promotion on adhoc basis immediately and DGM regular promotion after Nov 2019.
DOP&PW advice to DOT on VRS in BSNL / MTNL: It is understood that DOP&PW has given advice to DOT on implementation of VRS in BSNL/MTNL i.e. VRS scheme proposed by DoT is as per DPE guidelines and is relevant for the employees of PSUs, who do not get pension under CCS Pension Rule on Volunteer Retirement. The pension of BSNL/ MTNL employees is regulated by CCS Pension rule and the same is paid by the Govt. from Consolidate Fund of India. Rule 37 A of CCS (P) Rule provides for volunteer retirement after completion of 10 years combined qualifying service these employees of BSNL/MTNL could be encouraged to go on volunteer retirement under the existing rule 37 A instead of offering the Ex gratia in addition to the normal pensionary benefits available in terms of rule 37 A of CCS (Pension) rules.
In accordance with the rule 37 A of those rules, their pension is also be paid by the Govt. DoT may, therefore, examine in consultation with DoPT whether, instead of offering them a Special Volunteer Retirement Scheme (VRS), these employees could be transferred to surplus cell for redeployment in DoT or other Govt. Departments of the Central Govt. for the remaining period of their service in accordance with the scheme of DoPT for redeployment of the surplus staff.
From the above, it seems that DoP&PW is not in favour of imposing VRS to those employees who have taken absorption in BSNL/MTNL and opted for combined service and are governed for Govt. pension under rule 37 A. Hence, AIBSNLEA demands DoT/ Govt. to extent financial support to BSNL/MTNL for their growth , maintenance & operations as per the recommendation given by the GoM earlier in 2013-14.
CS and DS TVM met GM(A/HR) , Kerala Circle , Shri. R. Sathesh and requested to relieve off all officers who are under order of transfer in ERP without delay . He replied that some executives are already relieved. He assured to consider our request after contacting BA heads.
Regularization of the date of Promotion of AGMs/DEs as 29.6.2018: We requested to regularize of the date of Promotion of AGMs/DEs as 29.6.2018 irrespective of their date of joining duty and extension of subsequent benefits if any with respect to the date of Promotion on 29.6.2018 pursuant to the instructions contained in AGM (Pers.I) BSNL CO, New Delhi Letter dated 4.7.2018, 5.7.2018 & 6.7.2018. As of now all the AGMs/DEs promoted on the first list stands en block junior to all other AGM/DEs joined subsequently . As per the latest Apex court direction, the date of joining is the criteria to fix seniority. GM assured to look into the matter on deserving merit.
Release of transfer orders on request of two year completed LICE JTOs : We requested to issue the transfer orders due to availability of sufficient JTOs in the BAs. Moreover these unlucky JTOs requested transfer belongs the first JTO batch. All the subsequent batches of JTOs luckily got posting in their parent BA. This is a matter deserving appreciation to management, but the seniors are not brought back yet to parent BA is an unhappy situation. GM assured to discuss the matter with CGMT for a fruitful result.
CS , CVP and DS Pathanamthitta Com.Abhilash met DGM(HR) Smt. Ponnammal R and enquired about the status of pending Financial up gradation orders . DGM(HR) replied that as demanded by this association , all the pending Financial up gradation orders up to E3-E4 have been released for the VCs received . Fresh VCs are called for the pending cases. DSC , Department Screening Committee , for E4-E5 and E5-E6 to be chaired by CGMT . DSC for E4-E5 and E5-E6 has also been convened. Almost all the cases are considered. E4-E5 and E5-E6 up gradation orders will be released this week itself. All the pending cases will be released subsequently.
We requested to initiate ERP release of all the executives who are under order of inter BA transfer so that they can join back to parent BA without delay. This practice is being followed in Kerala Circle. DGM(HR) assured to take up the matter .

Director (HR) mentioned that as per the request of AIBSNLEA she has directed PGM (Pers.) to examine the matter in the light of EPP and BSNL MSRR provisions and to take decision in the manner where the executives are not put in loss.
Meeting with Sr.GM (Estt): GS, President and AGS (Finance) met Sr.GM (Estt) and discussed regarding
a) Cancellation of GTI Nominations erroneously given and requested for Refund: We requested for Cancellation of GTI Nominations erroneously given by the Executives in various Circles while opening of ESS Portal and refund of the wrongly deducted amount in March 2019 Salary on the basis of the list of Executives of various Circles furnished by AIBSNLEA and Various Circles. Sr.GM (Estt) informed that so many representations have been received from various Circles for the cancellation of GTI Nominations and refund of wrong recovery made from March 2019 Salary. He assured to discuss the matter with GM (Trg) , Director (HR) and LIC authorities for early resolution of the issue.
b) Extension of FR 22(1) (a) (i) benefits to the Ex. Officiating JTOs w.e.from 1.1..2007: We requested Sr.GM (Estt) to generalize the BSNL CO order dated 15.11.2018 regarding the fixation of Pay under FR-22 (1) (a) (i) with effect from 1.1.2007 to the officials, who were screening test passed & were officiating in the grade of JTO, to all Circles instead of limiting to some Circles alone and we also requested to withdraw the wrong Fixation order dated 22.12.2015. In this regard we informed the Sr.GM (Estt) that AIBSNLEA has written a letter to the DIR (HR) on 19.11.2018 but no action has been taken in this regard. After detailed discussion Sr.GM (Estt) assured to discuss the matter with the concerned DGM(Estt) for early settlement.
GS, President met concern officers of DOT and found that DOT has sent Cabinet Note on Revival of BSNL to consider three points (a) 4G spectrum allocation to BSNL (b) monitisation of BSNL land and(c) VRS to 54000 employees on Gujarat model.
The VRS has been recommended of 50 years above age employees on the existing pay only.3rd PRC pay fixation in VRS is not under consideration.
The cabinet meeting is expected to be held on 15-4-2019.
5% incentive on ex- grasia is also recommended.
30% income tax deduction on ex-grasia will be there as "profits in lieu of salary" under section 17(3) of the Income Tax Act and the Employer would be liable to deduct tax on the same under section 192 of the I T Act.
The employees who opts VRS will also be loosing their increments of their left out service which will affect their pension for whole life.
In case 3rd PRC is implemented after VRS and on Revival of BSNL for the remaining employees, there pay may be revised notionally from a later date as happened in the case of 78.2% fitment order on BSNL pensioners & 73% order for MTNL, which will benefit them in terms of pension and pensionary benefits. But the employees taking VRS may not get the benefit.
The ex-grasia amount will be paid form amount of BSNLs land monitisation no funds from Govt.
Without having any roadmap for the operation and mtce of BSNL infrastructure may harm the quality of service and will further put BSNL into loss. The MTNL example is there where the VRS has been imposed twice but couldn't revive MTNL rather put in heavy loss. We feel that Govt should allow monitisation of BSNL land and the funds collected through this should be utilised for BSNL Operation and maintenance instead of imposing VRS. During next 3-years about 50000 employees will retire on their superannuation.
Thus Govt should drop VRS from revival plan of BSNL. VRS is neither beneficial to the employees nor to the BSNL.

Holding protest demonstration on 12-04-2019, opposing VRS
Unions and Associations of BSNL are organising Protest Demonstrations throughout the country on 12-04-2019, against the implementation of VRS in BSNL.
All the CHQ Office Bearers, Circle / District Secretaries are requested to hold Protest Demonstrations against the arbitrary imposing of VRS in BSNL by making 100% participation of our members at BSNL CO/Circle and District Levels.<<<Click here for notice>>>
Why AIBSNLEA is opposing VRS?
You are aware that DoT, under the instructions of PMO, has suddenly decided to roll out VRS Plan for BSNL/MTNL employees. BSNL Management has been assured that there will be no dearth the money to give effect to VRS proposal. Almost 54000 existing employees of BSNL are supposed to go out the roll of the BSNL on implementation of this VRS. This is done under the pretext of “Revival of BSNL/MTNL”.
You are also aware that all BSNL Unions and Associations barring a few, have decided collectively to oppose this move of the Government and AIBSNLEA is a party to this and accordingly Notice has been issued to the DoT/BSNL to hold protest demonstration on 12th April 2019.
The question is why have we taken such decision? Does it mean, we as Associations and Unions of BSNL do not have any concern for revival of BSNL from the ongoing crisis? Or, is it that we are indifferent about the interests of the individual members? It is to everybody’s knowledge that the Unions and Associations of BSNL are very responsible Trade Union organizations and interest of BSNL is prime in their minds. For last couple of years the Unions and Associations have been constantly fighting for uplift of BSNL in the arena of cut throat competition. We have resisted every moves by the authority that be to inflict harm to BSNL directly or indirectly. Years before we have demanded to roll out 4G in BSNL to make it more competition fit. Other demands having financial implications e.g. payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum of pay scale have been demanded and pressed for by us. At the same time we have opposed the move of VRS even earlier. Why?
Association is aware that there may be individual members who, out of their own unique situation or personal financial equation may feel that VRS is up to his or her interest. AIBSNLEA is sensitive to the interests of individual members.
But we must understand that the issue like VRS at this crucial juncture cannot and should not be viewed through a narrow prism of individual gain or loss. We, the office-bearers at various level must try to weigh it on broader perspective. BSNL should stay healthy. There are employees who have long service life left. They should not be sacrificed for short term gain.
Our Association is not opposed to VRS par se. We are aware that in PSU systems, VRS is an accepted proposition. We are also aware that in some organizations VRS is implemented to the advantage of the organizations and the employees have been benefited as well. It is a win win situation there.
In these organizations where VRS is successfully implemented, the entire road map is carefully chalked out on long drawn perspective. VRS is planned 2-3 years before. The targeted employees are identified carefully, mapping the need of the field and the action for suitable replacement is initiated well in advance. So that there is no shortage of man power.
The instant VRS proposal is brought in a hurry and it is apparent that actual purpose behind it is not the revival of BSNL but something else. Just considered the situation how and when such proposal is being hurriedly push through.
A few weeks/months before unions and associations were demanding some important issues related to well-being of BSNL, even DOT / BSNL precipitated an agitation in BSNL . DOT and Ministry were not in a mood to consider any of such demand. Even at the instructions of the higher-ups payment of the salary of employees was stalled. Now when the entire country press into election mode and Model Code of Conduct is affected. Suddenly all this proposals were brought in the hasty move. BSNL Unions and Associations and other stake holders of BSNL have never been taken in to confidence or even consulted before taking such hasty decision. What is the reason?
We are sure this may be anything other than in the interest of BSNL. By such move they want to harm BSNL and make it in a retrograde situation in the competitive scenario. Privatization may also be hidden agenda .
On the contrary, consider the case of MTNL where VRS has been implemented twice so far. But the net result is that MTNL became weaker and weaker at this. Now when DOT is proposing VRS in MTNL for the third time to reduce 10000 employees, MTNL is having at present 22000 employees and already experiencing acute shortage of working hands in the field units. The revenue hits at the lowest bottom. The strength of employees has been reduced drastically but so is the customer base and revenue earning. None in DOT/Govt is interested to look at it. It is as if, reducing the employees is their ultimate objective and not revival of MTNL. One can easily understand what is going to happen in MTNL in coming few days.
For BSNL, VRS is being thought of only from one angle. Let the strength of the employees be reduced so that present wage bill is reduced. But there is no consideration about the resultant impact in the field units. We are certain that minimizing the working hands by applying mindless VRS without having any regard to its immediate retrograde impact in the field, cannot serve any meaningful purpose in the way of reviving of BSNL. It will go in MTNL way. One VRS will follow another VRS but crisis will continue. Unmindful reduction of staff will lead to a situation where offloading of day to day maintenance work will be assigned to the petty contractors. Cost will be enhanced but efficiency will be reduced resulting into steady loss of customers and revenue. We cannot have opportunistic approach on such a vital issue which will affect the BSNL and its employees.
