Meeting between Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL - 
A historical meeting:

A meeting is held at the Sanchar Bhawan today the 24.02.2018, between Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL (AUAB). Together with the Minister, Secretary, DoT, Special Secretary, DoT, Joint Secretary (Admn.), DoT, DDG (Esst), DoT, Shri Anand Kumar, OSD to the Hon’ble Minister, CMD BSNL and Director (HR) BSNL were present. From the All Unions and Associations of BSNL, Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, Com. Chandeswar Singh, GS, NFTE, Com. K. Sebastin, GS, SNEA, Com. Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com. K. Jayaprakash, GS, FNTO, Com. N.D. Ram, GS, SEWA BSNL, Com. Ravi Shil Verma, GS, AIGETOA, Com. Mallikarjuna, President, BSNL MS and Com. S.D. Sharma, GS, BSNL ATM, participated in the discussions. The representatives of the AUAB heartily thanked the Hon’ble Minister for taking out time to meet them. Detailed discussions took place on the memorandum submitted to the Hon’ble Minister, the details of which are as follows:-


(1)               3rd Pay Revision.

So far, the DoT has been maintaining that BSNL employees are not eligible for 3rd Pay Revision. In today’s meeting the Hon’ble Minister agreed that the issue of 3rd Pay Revision of BSNL employees would be processed and would be taken for the approval of the DPE and the Cabinet. This is a great achievement. We have broken the stalemate that prevailed in the Pay Revision issue. At the same time we have to be vigilant, till the final approval is given by the Cabinet.


(2)               Formation of Subsidiary Tower Company.

The AUAB representatives expressed their apprehension that in the name of formation of the Tower Company, the 66,000 mobile towers of BSNL are being snatched away from BSNL. They also pointed out that the decision of the Cabinet that, the Subsidiary Tower Company would remain under the control of BSNL Management, has been violated, through the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of Subsidiary Tower Company. They further pointed out that even BSNL Management was not taken in to confidence in the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, which clearly shows that the Subsidiary Tower Company would not be under the control of BSNL Management. The reply given by the Hon’ble Minister in this regard is not satisfactory. The AUAB has to find ways and means to ensure the rolling back of the Subsidiary Tower Company.


During the discussions on the issue, GS AIBSNLEA raised the issue of additional increment on post based promotions under the provisions of executive promotion policy provisions which has been denounced by DoT vide letter dated 05.07.2017 and lakhs of rupees recoveries are taking place of BSNL executives and BSNL pensioners. He instantly submitted Hon’ble PB CAT judgment copy to Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) wherein the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 has been quashed. Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) immediately directed DoT administration to look into the matter.  Now, we can expect that DoT may not go for appeal against the PBCAT order in this regard after this meeting.


(3)               Pension Revision.

The representatives of AUAB strongly argued that pension revision should be done to the BSNL pensioners. It was pointed out that the BSNL pensioners and the Central Government pensioners are covered by the same rules. They argued that when pension revision is settled for the Central Government pensioners, the same should not be denied to the BSNL pensioners. The Hon’ble Minister assured that needful action would be taken to settle this issue. 


(4)               Calculation of Pension Contribution.

It was strongly argued that pension contribution in respect of BSNL employees cannot be calculated on the basis of maximum of the pay scale, when the same is calculated on the basis of actual basic pay, in the case of Central Government employees. It was pointed out that as per the DoP&T order issued in 2006, pension contribution of the Central Government employees is being deducted on the basis of actual pay only. The Hon’ble Minister directed the Secretary, DoT, that this issue should be settled as per Government orders.


(5)               Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL.

The AUAB representatives pointed out that it will be extremely difficult for BSNL to compete with the private operators, without providing 4G service. They strongly argued that the proposal of the BSNL Management, for the allotment of 4G spectrum by the Government, should be accepted. The Hon’ble Minister replied in the positive and assured that needful action would be taken.


(6)               Reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58.

The AUAB representatives strongly argued that the retirement age of the BSNL employees should not be reduced from 60 to 58, as a measure for the revival of BSNL. The Hon’ble Minister told that the government is not having any proposal to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58.


(7)               Left out issues of the 2nd PRC.

The AUAB representatives pointed out that this issue is lingering on very long time and needs to be settled. The Hon’ble Minister stated that this issue would be looked into by the Secretary, DoT.


At the end of the meeting, the Hon’ble Minister stated that the representatives of AUAB could meet him again, as well as the Secretary, DoT, in continuation of today’s meeting. The representatives of AUAB heartily thanked the Minister for his positive response to most of the issues.


After the meeting with the Hon’ble Minister, a meeting of the AUAB was held in the FNTO’s office. All the General Secretaries expressed their satisfaction with regards to the progress in the issues. They also expressed the view that all these have happened only because of the united struggles and massive mobilization by the entire Non-Executives and Executives, for which they deserve appreciation.

Meeting with Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) with the representatives of All Unions  / Associations of BSNL: Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) has fixed up a meeting with the representatives of All Unions  / Associations of BSNL  on 24.02.2018 [Saturday] at 12.30 Hrs. to discuss the demands.


Today evening , CS , CVP, ACS , DFS TVM  addressed DR JTO Phase-I trainees and other JTO trainees who are undergoing training at RTTC Trivandrum by elaborating all the prevailing conditions of BSNL . AIBSNLEA exhorted the need of unity among all employees of BSNL for the survival of both BSNL and BSNL Employees . DR of BSNL are short of getting 5 more percent of superannuation benefits to 30%   while almost all other PSUs have already extended this benefits to their DRs . AIBSNLEA has been fighting for 30% benefits despite the fact that   another association had pointed out   on an occasion that this benefit cannot be extended to the DRs due to the financial crisis of BSNL .  AIBSNLEA is totally against the lateral entry of DGM/MT  , which will kill the career prospects of DR executives.  Moreover , only AIBSNLEA along with AIGETOA did fight against the  recruitment . AIBSNLEA is for E2-E3 Scale implementation  in true spirit .etc ....


While addressing the two batches erstwhile O-JTO batches of Phase-II undergoing JTOs,  CS and ACS detailed the progress status of FR 22 1 (a) 1 pay protection case .  The very lawful pay fixation and its protection is upheld by CAT , HC and SC without any room of apprehension after prolonged years of legal fighting .   Despite the fact, the apparent move of BSNL Corporate Office to review the case at SC will only result in loss to BSNL exchequer and delay in implementing the legitimate right. AIBSNLEA is trying at all the levels to implement the SC order at the earliest.


The meeting was welcomed by Com.Balakrishnan JTO , CEC Member from Kannur and Vote of thanks was proposed by Com.Madhu Pavithran JAO CMTS at RTTC Campus

Sanchar Bhavav March


DoT vide letter number 24-1/2018/SR communicated CMD, BSNL with respect to the agitation notice by All Unions and Associations of BSNL - Massive March to Sanchar Bhawan on 23.02.2018. Through this letter DoT has apprised the status of demands wherein all the demands have been denied which is the most frustrating situation. DoT instead of settling the issues in the interest of BSNL's viability and its employees denying the settlement of the legitimate demands.

Meeting with Secretary (Telecom), DoT:

GS/AIBSNLEA along with GS / BSNLEU and GS / SNEA met Secretary (Telecom), DoT and requested for considering the BSNL’s proposal for implementation of 3rd PRC recommendation with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL. We expressed our concern that the BSNL Board recommendations in this regard are pending in DoT for the last three months but no steps have been taken so far for its implementation. We further requested that DoT should relax the “Affordability Clause” of 3rd PRC or should take relaxation from Union Cabinet in the interest of BSNL and its employees. We pleaded that BSNL employees are working with their full commitment for the growth of BSNL and also timely completing the various Govt. projects like BHARAT NET, NFS & LWE etc.


Pay revision in BSNL is must to keep motivated the BSNL employees and in the interest of the viability of BSNL. Delay in consideration of pay revision has caused serious frustrations, resentment and demotivation amongst the BSNL employees. We explained that most of the BSNL employees were DoT employees only before their absorption in BSNL and as per Govt. of India Policy, after formation of the BSNL they exercised their option for taking absorption in BSNL under the assurances of better pay, promotion and pension but now the same is being deprived off on one pretext or another.


Regarding pension revision of BSNL pensioners, we apprised her that DoT Pension Cell is linking the pension revision with the pay revision of BSNL serving employees which is not justified since the BSNL pensioners are not related with the affordability of BSNL. During their service, their pension contribution has already been paid to DoT. The DDG (Estt) every time is explaining that in case the pension revision is done for BSNL pensioners without the pay revision of BSNL serving employees there will be anomalies in the pension. He is explaining that in case the pension is revised without considering the pay revision of BSNL serving employees, in that case BSNL pensioners retired prior to 01.01.2017 will draw more pension than the BSNL pensioners who retired or retiring after 01.01.2017. In this regard, we requested Secretary (Telecom) for her kind intervention for resolving the issue.


Secretary (Telecom), after giving patient hearing assured an early action in this regard and mentioned that Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) is also telling in all the meetings that we will consider the case. We extended thanks for granting the meeting.



Meeting with CMD BSNL : GS, President and FS met CMD BSNL  and discussed regarding

a) Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL: We requested CMD to use his good office in DoT for the approval of BSNL Board decision on 3rd PRC implementation and we also requested CMD BSNL to arrange a meeting with Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) and Secretary, DOT with all Unions and Associations of BSNL to discuss their demands. CMD BSNL assured to arrange a meeting within a couple of days.

b) Filling up of the vacant of Group-A & Group-B posts: We requested to hold CPCs to fill-up the vacant Group-A and Group-B posts on Adhoc basis subject to outcome of the pending Court Cases. CMD mentioned that after our earlier meeting on this issue he has issued necessary instructions to GM (Pers) and advised us to discuss the matter with GM (Pers) for an early action.

c) Implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy: CMD mentioned that the matter was discussed in the last BSNL Board meeting held on 08.02.2018 wherein Govt. nominee Director has asked to reply some of his queries. Thus after the approval from BSNL Board the matter will be sent to DOT for clearance. We further requested that the CPCs should be conducted simultaneously till the time CPSU Cadre Hierarchy is implemented.

Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi issues orders in OA No. 2649 quashing DOT Order dated 5/7/2017:

Congratulations! AIBSNLEA's consistent efforts yielded results in getting delivered a favourable judgment by the Hon'ble PBCAT New Delhi for quashing the DoT letter dated 05.07.2017 which rescinded grant of an extra increment on post based promotion under EPP. Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi has issued orders in OA No. 2649 quashing DOT Order dated 5/7/2017. While writing the judgment Hon'ble PBCAT has mentioned that "The applicants have basically prayed for retention of para I.II (v) of the EPP (Annexure A-2, which has been duly approved by the Government according to its policy. There has been no policy change as such in the Government in regard to the service conditions of the BSNL employees. The controversy has arisen only on account of P&T audit unnecessarily trying to compare financial upgradation under the EPP with that under the MACP, not realizing that these two schemes are applicable to two separate set of employees.

11. In the conspectus of the discussions in the foregoing paras as well as considering the background of introduction of EPP, I am of the view that the impugned Annexure A-1 order dated 05.07.2017 is not at all legally as well as ethically justifiable. Its retention would create trust deficit between the BSNL employees and the Central Government, which is also unwarranted. Hence, I quash and set aside the impugned Annexure A-1 order dated 05.07.2017. Accordingly, the OA stands allowed.

This judgment is a glaring example about the of working of AIBSNLEA which fights sincerely and legally for the interests of all employees without any discrimination.

Dir (HR) mentioned that BSNL Board approval on 3rd PRC implementation was sent to DOT one month before but till date it is pending and no body from DOT is discussing the matter with BSNL management. Thus the matter has to be discussed with Secretary Telecom and Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) for their kind intervention and its implementation. We expressed our concern that BSNL only is executing the dream project of Hon'ble Prime Minister regarding NOFN work (Bharat Net Project), NFS Work and LWE project etc. and now Govt. is neglecting BSNL workers for their wage revision by implementing 3rd PRC is not justified.

b) Withdrawal of Tower Subsidiary:  Dir (HR) mentioned that the decision on creation of Tower Subsidiary and appointment of CMD Tower Subsidiary has been taken by Govt. and now any review may be done by Govt. only. The matter has to be taken up with Hon'ble MOSC (I/C).

General Body  of AIBSNLEA Thrissur branch has been conducted at Recreation club hall , Thrissur on 25-01-2018 under the presidentialship of Com. Krishnan DP TCR . The members are welcomed by DS Com.Ashiq . CS and CVP attended the grand meeting .


While welcoming the gathering, DS narrated the very unhealthy/unethical political practice being adopted by one association in adding membership, which is no way suitable for an executive association . DP emphasised the need of unity among employees for a better BSNL.


CS elaborated all the prevailing situations of BSNL in service /HR and other matters.
