AIBSNLEA Kerala was called for submitting our views on Revival of BSNL by the team IIM Ahmadabad engaged by DOT for submitting revival plan for BSNL , yesterday on 02-11-2018. The IIM Team Comprise of Madam Prof: Rekha Jain , Prof:  Ajay Pandey ,  Prof:Vishal Guptha and Shri.Miheer Agnihothri .


AIBSNLEA got the first opportunity to submit  our views . We submitted all the relevant points to the IIM team for the revival of BSNL in a very delightful way. Total interaction was there from all team members  to all our suggestions and all points were noted after amiable discussions.  Our presentation and discussions were lasted for one hour.


CS Com V. Shaji , CEC Member TVM Com.Rajan and ADS CO Branch Com.Sherafudeen were in AIBSNLEA Side . Shri.Robin Poddar GM(A/HR) and Shri.Satheesh Jt GM were there as BSNL Management representatives.


AIBSNLEA clearly emphasizes that allotment of 4G spectrum and award of 3rd PRC to BSNL employees with 15% benefits will be the two pillars to fix the first stepping stone for the revival of BSNL .While submitting our view no recommendation for VRS/CRS , committee sought clarification . As of now BSNL suffering to meet funds for disbursing salary, now how can we expect a good VRS package from BSNL employees ? , we replied. We further replied to the comment , if DOT give money for VRS package ?, DOT must pump capital for constructive activities of BSNL like 3rd PRC and 4G spectrum not destructive  activities like CRS/VRS. While asking why are we against non-absorbers in BSNL , we submitted that BSNL has very talented officers including absorbed ITS/IES and absorbed officers  in Finance department burning for getting timely  salary at least , the non absorbers simply enjoying facilities of BSNL  those are barred for others, along  with 7nth CPC benefits . In addition, they are blocking promotion avenues of absorbed officers by occupying higher posts.  


We discontent another association’s suggestion that training only motivate employees than 3rd PRC . Though training will definitely motivate employees , the need of the time is 3rd PRC and 4G   spectrum. 


We thank our hard core member and TVM branch office bearer Com.Noushad Lal  ( DR JTO ) , a very dynamic faculty member at RTTC Trivandrum for contributing very creative suggestions to the revival of BSNL.


We submitted our suggestions in mail to the Team IIM.

24-10-2018: CHQ News

GS & President met GM (Pers) and discussed regarding

A) JTO to SDE (T) Promotion: We requested GM (Pers) for the immediate issuance of Promotion order from JTO to SDE for the 5000 vacant posts in the cadre of SDE (T). GM (Pers) informed that the exemption application of CMD BSNL personal appearance in the JTO to SDE Promotion Contempt case in the Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam has been filed and the case is listed for hearing on 29.10.2018 after the clearance from the Court for CPC from JTO to SDE (T) will be expedited.


BSNL has also filed review Petition against the Hon'ble High Court Kerala  Judgement.

B) AO to CAO Promotion:   We resented against the delay in the process of promotion from AO to CAO on the pretext of legal opinion. The stay order was vacated by the Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh one and half month before but the promotion orders are not being issued. GM(Pers) informed that a meeting is being hold by Director (HR) today to discuss the matter and some break through will be made in this direction  to  issue AO to CAO Promotion orders immediately.


C) CAO to DGM (F) Promotion: We requested  GM (Pers) to get approved  CAO to DGM(F) CPC minutes from CMD BSNL which is kept pending for more than one month. We explained the GM (Pers) that no Contempt case or Stay is pending in any Court for the CAO to DGM(F) Promotion and the CAO to DGM(F) CPC was conducted after the approval MC of the BSNL Board. After detailed discussion GM (Pers) assured to discuss the issue with the CMD for getting early clearance.


AIBSNLEA efforts in getting released about 13000 executives promotion orders through CPCs before implementation of proposed CPSU Cadre hierarchy :

After the Membership verification AIBSNLEA was granted the 2nd Majority Association status and later support Association. Even after winning in the 17 Circles and losing in 14 Circles, AIBSNLEA was granted support Association status on the basis of total votes secured. Against this AIBSNLEA filed a case in the Hon'ble High Court Allahabad which is still pending for decision. After the referendum the so called Majority Association impressed upon the Management that they should only be discussed all the issues no other Association should be heard or allow to function. This created great disunity among the executives and Management very successfully divided the executives to their convenience. So called majority Association instead of killing of other Associations should have taken efforts with all Associations to bring them together on the common issues for the betterment of executive cadres but they avoided this.

Present Status of promotions through CPCs & CPSU CH:  In view of the Court cases on TES Group “B' seniority the promotions were held up. To overcome with this situation AIBSNLEA proposed to implement CPSU cadre hierarchy  in the year 2012 and to achieve this AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA launched agitation programs in February 2013 under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations and thereafter a Committee headed by the then  PGM (FP) Shri S.R. Kapoor was constituted to discuss the matter. AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA were the members of the committee. But due to serious difference of opinion between the staff side and management side members of the committee could not submit the report.

Again second time the then PGM (SR) Shri N.K. Narang was made the Chairman of the committee but this Committee also failed to submit the report. In the year -2015 after the Joining of New CMD Shri Anupam Shrivastava the matter was further raised and he was kind enough to further reconstitute the Committee headed by the Shri. M.A .Khan the then ED (NB), GM (Estt.) and GM (EF) were official side members and AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA were the staff side members. After marathon meetings Mr. Khan Committee submitted its recommendations. AIBSNLEA constantly persuaded for the implementation of Khan Committee recommendations but meanwhile BSNL Management started the MV process of Executive Association which derail the process. Pers. Cell BSNL C.O. was not at all interested to implement Khan Committee report on CPSU Cadre hierarchy and ignored the views of  other Executive Associations and in collusion with so called majority Association diluted the Khan Committee report and tried to limit functional  promotions up to Sr. SDE level only etc. Against this dilution AIBSNLEA strongly protested   with CMD BSNL, Director (HR) and they appreciated the concern of AIBSNLEA and directed PGM (Pers.) to discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA wherein AIBSNLEA demanded Khan committee implementation in the true sense i.e.

  • Functional promotions up to AGM level, 
  • E-5 Grade AGMs to be designated Jt. DGM 
  • Selection on the basis of  numerical benchmarks,
  • Reduction of residency period from SDE/ AO to DE/CAO from 12 years to 5  years,
  • Date of effect from the last DPC conducted and ;
  • SC/ST roaster implementation as per DoP & T guidelines 
  • No functional Post of Sr SDE/Sr AO
  • No MT recruitment beyond JTO /JAO cadre etc.

PGM (Pers.) after detailed discussions incorporated  some suggestions of AIBSNLEA  i.e. functional promotion up to AGM level, Jt. DGM designation E-5 grade AGMs and bench marks on numerical basis etc. This got approved by the MC and thereafter BSNL Board.

AIBSNLEA persuaded up to level of JS (Admin), DoT cum Govt. Nominee Director in BSNL Board for improvement in Draft CPSU instead of the implementation of half cooked policy with severe Bottlenecks . which yielded result as Board while giving approval to CPSU cadre hierarchy directed to complete the ongoing CPCs before implementation of CPSU CH.

BSNL Board approved the CPSU Cadre hierarchy with date effect from its date of notification i.e. prospective date. It created path hole in CPSU Cadre hierarchy concept and most of the existing executives are not benefited with this policy. However, knowing this fact AIBSNLEA convince the BSNL Management to held CPCs to promote all the eligible executives to the next grade on functional basis before implementation of the CPSU Cadre hierarchy. BSNL Management appreciated AIBSNLEA concern and conducted CPCs in all the cadres and promoted about 13000 executives to the next higher grade on functional basis. This could not be tolerated by the so called majority Association and they protested against holding of CPCs and demanded to implement CPSU cadre hierarchy only. But they failed and to create a road block and they demanded parity among all the cadres which was not immediately possible as in all the Cadre there was difference from DoT legacy.  To stall the process of CPCs filed contempt cases against CMD and Director (HR) for issuing promotions. It frustrated the Management and finally all the promotions through CPCs are stalled. AIBSNLEA is still trying that as soon as the contempt cases are settled promotions should be made available through CPCs immediately to benefit the executives' monitory and status. Now so called majority Association is claiming that due to their pressure on CPSU Cadre hierarchy, CPCs has taken place which is beyond truth.
