It is time for introspection to Majority Association
AIBSNLEA have been fighting for the settlement of all the legitimate HR issues and viability of BSNL since its inception and achieved many mile stones during the period by getting implemented grant of perks to executives w.e.f. 01.01.2005, implementation of EPP w.e.f 18.01.2007, filling of all vacant STS Group-‘A’ level posts in all discipline by getting clearance from DoT in Sept.-2006, Transparent Transfer Policy-2008, BSNL MSRR-2009, Implementation of 2nd PRC recommendations in BSNL with full 30% fitment benefits in BSNL, IDA Pension revision for BSNL Pensioners issued on 15.03.2011, Merger of 50% DA with Basic Pay w.e.f. 01.01.2007 effectively amounting to 78.2% for the purpose of fitment and pay fixation in the revised pay scales, Withdrawal of 60:40 provision in the Pension Rules 37A for BSNL employees and payment of 78.2% fitment benefit to BSNL Pensioners, Withdrawal of MT RR-2008 and 2011, Regularization of adhoc level executives in all disciplines, filling up of the vacant DGM/SE posts in all disciplines, 3% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees, framing of JTO RR-2014 and conduction of JTO LICE, Creation of PPS and Sr. PPS posts, regularization of offg. JTOs, Rs. 22820/- Pay anomaly resolution by formation of Committee and active participation in all the struggles of BSNL Unions and Associations to protect the interest of BSNL etc.
Recently in December-2016 BSNL Management conducted referendum for majority executive Association wherein AIBSNLEA by getting 18,400 votes got Support Association status and thereafter continuously trying to protect the interest of all the BSNL executives i.e. whether it is BSNL recruited or absorbed in BSNL. After referendum under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations one agitation was launched for the settlement of the burning demands i.e. pay loss of post 2007 recruited executives, standard pay scales by replacing E1A by E2, E2A by E3 and subsequent up-gradation of pay scales E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7, 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees, CPSU Cadre hierarchy as per the Khan Committee report, 3rd PRC implementation with 15% fitment benefit and pension revision of BSNL pensioners etc. On the positive assurance given by the CMD BSNL and Director (HR) the agitation programme was deferred. But immediately just after the deferment of the agitation, BSNL management took vindictive actions against the General Secretaries of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA by issuing “Show Cause” notice, deduction of salary of two days DHARNA organized on 27th and 28th Dec-2016 by cancelling the sanctioned E/L and C/L etc.
Thereafter, on 28th March-2017, DoT administration issued ‘Presidential Directives’ for E1A and E2A intermediary pay scales which created unrest and accordingly AIBSNALEA and AITEEA organized protest demonstration on 06.04.2017 wherein Com. GS, AIGETOA was also requested to sign the notice but he expressed his inability in signing the agitation notice of United Forum and mentioned that he is in favour of Joint struggle of all the Associations and he along with his members already actively participated in demonstrations made on 30/03/2017 by the Majority Association. Com. GS, AIGETOA was requested by GS AIBSNLEA and GS, AITEEA for serving a agitation notice under the banner of United Forum for protest actions, but GS AIGETOA was perhaps committed to Majority Association not to go for agitation on the platform of United Forum and insisted us also to come and join with them rather than starting agitation. And finally they formed Joint Forum and served a notice of agitation on 10.04.2017 when the GS AIBSNLEA was on LTC at Port Blair w.e.f. 09.04.2017 to 16.04.2017. I explained to GS AIGETOA and GS SNEA that at present I am away from CHQ and after having the talk with our CHQ Office bearers and Circle Secretaries, I shall be able to take the decision because just three months before referendum has taken place wherein lot of hot exchanges have taken place, so immediate joint struggle is not possible. We have to convince and mentally prepare our members at base level for joint struggle then only it would be possible for us to come together but it was ignored for which the reasons are best known to them and finally they served the notice under the banner of Joint Forum denouncing United Forum. Now, Majority Associations is alleging support Association to derail all the HR issues which JF and BSNL Management jointly trying to resolve.
The fact remains that Jt. Forum in collision with the BSNL Management is trying to sabotage the important HR issues which the support Association have brought on track i.e. E1-A by E2, E2-A by E3 and subsequent up-gradation of pay scales E3 by E4, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7 which was approved by Management Committee of BSNL Board and was sent to DoT on 06.06.2016 during the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA.
The majority Association since beginning tried to sabotage it and after referendum pressurized the BSNL Management to trunked the proposal making it half i.e. upto E1-A by E2 and E2-A by E3 only wherein double fixation in E3 grade, means one executive will remain in E3 scale for 10 years in violation of EPP which will invite litigations. Knowing well this fact they are befooling the executives and trying to harm the interest of all the executives of BSNL. They pressurized BSNL Management to withdraw the earlier 06.06.2016 proposal and halved it up-to E1-A by E2 and E2-A by E3 only. But with the vigorous efforts of AIBSNLEA, they could not succeed in it and now BSNL has replied the queries of DoT pleading that BSNL’s earlier proposal of 06.06.2016 may be considered in two parts. AIBSNLEA will continue to make its efforts for up-gradation of all the pay scales E1-A to E2, E2-A to E3, E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7 in the larger interest of all the executives.
Majority Association is sabotaging the Khan Committee report on CPSU Cadre Hirarchy by allowing MT recruitment and allowing post based promotions up-to STS level only. We will strongly oppose such acts of Majority Association.
30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees precipitated after the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA only. Majority Association never contributed in this regard.
PGM (PF) Ms. A. Panda, Committee on pay anomaly of Rs. 22820/- of JTOs/JAOs post recruited 1.1.2007 was constituted on the demand of AIBSNLEA and AITEEA by CMD BSNL. But the Majority Association trying to sabotage the committee report raising huge financial implication to benefit thousands of executives in the report in line of Estt. Cell pleadings.
Notional pay fixation issue of JTOs/SDEs(C/E/Arch/TF) Engineering wings and PA cadre was initiated and taken by AIBSNLEA and with it’s sincere efforts only the management committee of BSNL Board has cleared it and now BSNL board approval is awaited. This issue was hijacked by majority association. E1+5 advance increment benefit to JTOs/JAOs could be settled by AIBSNLEA through KCGK Pillai Committee report. Now JTO(SRD), JAO 2013 batch and PAs case has been cleared by BSNL Management committee and awaiting BSNL board approval.
Diversion of MT Quota posts to seniority quota posts in Telecom Engg. could take place first and then diversion of MT Quota posts to seniority quota posts of CAOs cadre got cleared from Management committee of BSNL board and now waiting for BSNL board approval. E5 to E6 time bound promotion and EPP to DGM adhoc by modification in BSNL MS RR got approved from Management committee of BSNL and now waiting for BSNL board approval. AD(O/L) cadre restructuring got approved from Management committee of BSNL and now DOT approval is awaited. All the queries asked by DoT has been replied by BSNL. About 1200 DGM(Engg.) and about 250 DGM(Fin)/ DGM(TF), about 100 SE(Elect./Civil) promotion could become possible with the untiring efforts of AIBSNLEA.
Sincere efforts are being made to get expedite CPCs from JTO to SDE, SDE to DE, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, CAO to DGM(Finance), JTO(C/E) to SDE(C/E), SDE(c) to EE(C), etc by taking some solution in view of the legal opinion on Hon’ble High Court Chandigarh judgment and DP&T guidelines on SC/ST roster implementation.
In this manner AIBSNLEA will continue to work to safeguard the interest of all the executives of BSNL.
Majority association after referendum should honestly concentrate for the settlement of pending HR issues in the interest of all the executives instead of doing vote bank politics. Majority association should not worry on support association affairs. Support association knows it’s responsibility well.
It’s a fact that AIBSNLEA got about 18400 plus votes during referendum and got support association status with the help of AIGETOA and AITEEA. AIBSNLEA is committed to protect the interest of its members and supporters. Now AIGETOA leadership preferred to align with Majority Association under the banner of Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations under the assurance that they will achieve their demands and no vindictive actions will be there against them which the GS AIGETOA faced “Show Cause” notice during the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA. Now BSNL Management leaving Majority Association leaders aside has victimized GS AIGETOA by serving majority penalty charge sheet. It has caused panic and now majority Association is desperate to mount pressure on BSNL Management to withdraw the vindictive actions through the agitation of BSNL Unions and Associations on the pretext of 3rdPRC implementation, whereas, CMD BSNL with all the Board of Directors met Hon’ble MOS(C) (I/C) on 16.06.2017 and pleaded for implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit, then where is the need of going on strike at this juncture. However, we are against any victimization of Association/Union leaders/members for organizing legitimate Trade Union activities but they should be fair in their approach.
AIBSNLEA never harmed the interest of anyone and never deviated from its policies under the pressure like Majority association. AIBSNLEA is using all the channels to get implemented 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit and pension revision. In case if any difficulty is faced in this regard it will not hesitate to take harder Trade Union action programmes in term of even indefinite strike.
AIBSNLEA was never interested to mention above facts but the majority Association write up on their website 15.06.2017 has forced to explain.

Why AIBSNLEA is not participating in the agitation call given by the Unions and Associations of BSNL?
A meeting of BSNL Unions / Associations was held at New Delhi on 02.06.2017 to discuss the implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL. The meeting was convened by Com. P Abhimanyu GS, BSNLEU and was presided over by GS, AIBSNLEA.During discussions, as GS, AIBSNLEA while expressing our concern on 3rd PRC implementation we demanded that the particular Clause of the Rule 14 (1) of the BSNL (REA) Rules, 2013 which prevents executive Association’s participation along with the non-executives unions’ agitation programs i.e. “Further, the Association will not join hands with the non-executives’ unions for furtherance of their issues and / or participate in any kind of joint trade union action.” should be deleted / withdrawn.We further explained that during the agitation program of United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations comprising of AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA and AITEEA, for organizing “DHARNA” on 27th and 28th December 2016, all the three General Secretaries were issued “Show Cause” notice to initiate the disciplinary action under BSNL CDA conduct rules, wherein violation of Executives Associations recognition rules was also the charge against us. The sanctioned E/L and C/L for two days on 27th & 28thDecember 2016 of GS, AIBSNLEA and GS AITEEA were cancelled and a dies-non was made with two days salary cut. This issue was immediately brought to the notice of all the Unions/ Associations and accordingly GS BSNLEU and GS NFTE met CMD BSNL and Director (HR) BSNL and protested against this and gave a letter of protest but BSNL management did not withdrawn the “Show Cause” notices and “salary cut” even after a lapse of five months. We explained that under these circumstances, where we represent the executives of DGM/DE/CAO/EE/SDE/AO/JTO/JAO ranks, it is difficult to participate in the strike call because these executives are the soft target of the management and AIBSNLEA do not have any recognized channel to protect these executives. Hence, BSNL Unions/ Associations first take up the issue with BSNL management for withdrawal of all the vindictive actions and to stop such actions against the legitimate Trade Union activities of the BSNL Unions/ Associations. But unfortunately it was not given due consideration.The Demand of unconditionally withdrawing the BSNL C.O. letter dated 08.05.2017 banning all trade union activities in BSNL was related to the ongoing agitation of Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations. In compliance to the Hon’ble Patiala Court New Delhi orders it was banned. It cannot be imposed on all the unions/ associations. Presently the matter is being defended by the Joint Forum in the Hon’ble Patiala House Court. This issue should be discussed with BSNL management by both the majority Unions/Associations. We impressed upon that making it a demand of “strike” along with the demand of 3rd PRC implementation is not correct as it dilutes the main demand.Moreover, the Joint Forum of Executive Associations’ agitation was mainly to get replacement of E-1A by E2 and E-2A by E3 only wherein they are demanding withdrawal of BSNL’s earlier proposal which was send to DOT on 06.06.2016 during the agitation and the demand of United Forum of BSNL Executive Associations comprising of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA as1. Replacement of E-1A by E-2 and E-2A by E-2 and E-2 by E-3 pay scales w.e.f. 1.1.2007 and2 Upgradation of subsequent pay scales E-2 by E-4, E-4 by E-5, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 w.e.f. 1.1.2007.This demand of Joint Forum of BSNL Executives Associations has trunked the BSNL’s complete proposal and has halved the demand. Hence, AIBSNLEA can’t associate with such association’s agitation call.
In view of the above, AIBSNLEA will extend its solidarity support to the agitation call of BSNL Unions/ Associations on common demand of 3rd PRC related issues implementation.
We appreciate the efforts taken by BSNL Management in DOT for the implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefits for BSNL employees. Now, CMD BSNL along with all the BSNL Board members are meeting with Hon’ble MOS (C) )(I/C) on 16.06.2017 at 2:30 PM demanding 3rd PRC implementation with 15% fitment benefits in BSNL.In the meeting conducted by CMD BSNL with the representatives of BSNL Unions/ Associations on 03.06.2017, CMD BSNL categorically told that he will make his best efforts for the implementations of 3rdPRC in BSNL and in case he fails in getting implemented 3rd PRC in BSNL he will resign from the post of CMD BSNL owning the responsibility. It is really appreciable stand of CMD BSNL. We should trust his efforts and extend our fullest support to him in his endeavor.AIBSNLEA is continuously making its sincere efforts in convincing the officers in DOT/DPE in person in support of 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit. We have also requested Hon’ble MOS (C) (I/C) and Secretary (T) to grant us a meeting to represent our views in this regard. Let us, continue our efforts to ensure implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL.

AIBSNLEA Stand on Standard Pay Scales issue and clarification.
AIBSNLEA is sincerely trying for the last so many years for the effective and practical implementation of Standard pay scales (E2- for JTO/JAO and Equivalent cadres and E3 – for SDE/AO and Equivalent cadres). While the discussion came up initially, from several sources it was evident that without cascading effect (E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7) it cannot be implemented in BSNL. If at all standard pay scale is implemented without cascading effect, its damn sure that so many litigations will be filed in the courts due to the deadly issues of junior/ senior, heavy pay loss to the executives in the E2A scale, on the wedge of getting E3 compared to the executives at the beginning of E2A Scale and also holding an executive for 10 years in E3 scale is unlike any other PSUs. Thus practically the court cases will stop the implementation of Standard pay scales without cascading effect like so many promotions of JTO/SDE are stopped through court intervention. In addition to these many of senior executives are stagnating for the last couple of years without any annual increment.
By foreseeing these realties, AIBSNLEA took a stand since beginning for the implementation of standard pay scales with cascading effect because we want to implement this for the benefits of all the BSNL executives. More over, this implementation of standard pay scales with cascading effect is doubly benefitting for the young talents of BSNL working in the non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A. Those who want to see that standard pay scales are not implemented in BSNL at any cost, can only opt for implementation of standard pay scales without cascading effect. During the agitation of United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA ,Management Committee of BSNL Board deliberated over the issue at length and decided to recommend up-gradation of pay scales of E3, E4, E5 & E6 for Sr. SDE, AGM, DGM and SG-DGM and equivalent posts to E4, E5, E6 & E7 respectively w.e.f. 01.01.2007. Accordingly the proposal was sent to DoT vide letter number 1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 06.06.2016 for approval. But now the Majority Association is trying to get withdrawn the proposal and want to restrict the upgradation up to E2 and E3 Scales only. Hence they are harming the interest of all the BSNL Executives.
In spite of this, while DOT rejected the proposal of implementation of standard pay scales with cascading effect, AIBSNLEA also took a stand with the demand for implementation of standard pay scales without cascading effect with an expectation and symptoms that DOT will approve. DOT did not consider even implementation of E2 and E3 Pay Scales without cascading effect and approved E-1A and E-2A intermediatory Pay Scales.
But, what happened next is the outright rejection of the proposal. Who is responsible for this catastrophe? After referendum, one association, self-proclaimed as saviours of BSNL and BSNL executives, is recognised as Majority association gave trade union notice for the implementation standard pay scales for E2 & E3 alone to DOT and at a later stage withdrawn their demand for the reason known to them. When a recognised association demanding something and at a later stage unconditionally withdrawing the demands does clearly indicating that they are not serious on the demand of getting standard pay scales to BSNL Executives. This only triggered DOT to pronounce Presidential Orders for unwanted E1/E2 scales. How that association can wash off their hands? Do they think they can eye wash others from their calculated move by yelling and shedding crocodile tears in public after things are happened as per their wish ?
Now what a responsible association has to do? AIBSNLEA is doing for the benefits of all the executives without giving any scope for litigations. …. ……. …..
