Dear Friends and Well Wishers!

We learnt a lot of lessons in 2020, faced lot of problems and lost so many livelihoods throughout the World due to COVID-19. But we can’t forget the year -2020 in which BSNL has been revived with Rs.8500 Cr Sovereign Guarantee Bonds, VRS of our beloved friends, non getting of Regular Promotions, non allotment of 4G Spectrum and non finalisation of 4G Tender.

However, AIBSNLEA and BSNL will Focus on what we have rather than what we don’t have. We will fight together and make BSNL to regain it’s original pristine Glory and grow to another level.

AIBSNLEA always fight for the due and legitimate rights of BSNL Executives.

AIBSNLEA wishes that the New Year 2021 will born with new Happiness and Glory to keep the Mankind Healthy,  Wealthy and Peaceful all over the World.


………Regards………GS AIBSNLEA

Today GS AIBSNLEA, AGS (Fin.) and CHQ-Auditor met Shri R.K. Goyal, PGM (Pers.) CO BSNL and discussed regarding:

(a) JTO to SDE (T) Promotions:  We enquired about the status of JTO (T) to SDE promotion. PGM (Pers) mentioned that the preparatory work is going on in full swing. Required data is being collected from various Circles. Personnel branch is trying its best to issue JTO (T) to SDE (T) promotion orders shortly. It is expected that approximately 4500 JTOs will get SDE (T) promotion.


(b) Request for consideration of Regular Promotions in all the Streams in the light of the DoT OM dated 13.10.2020: GS appraised the PGM(Pers) that thousands of Executives already drawing Higher Scales are working in the entry level grade of JTO equivalent and waiting for their 1st Promotion for the years together. Likewise SDE(T)/ SDE(C/E/TF/Arch)/ AOs/ CCS/ PS cadres are waiting for their regular promotions since long. The Promotions are held up by the Management in the name of various Court Cases on Reservation & Seniority issues. AIBSNLEA has continuously pursuing and requesting the BSNL Management for the issuance of Regular Promotion Orders in all Cadres of all the Streams. We strongly oppose any look-after arrangement in higher grade but we demand immediate promotions on ‘Regular Basis’. 


We also brought to the notice of PGM (Pers) that recently, SCT Cell of DoT has issued an Office Memorandum dated 13th October, 2020 (regarding Clarifications on the issues relating to Reservation in Promotion for SCs/STs) after gathering the valuable Legal Opinion/Advice and in consultation with the ‘Ministry of Law & Justice’’, ‘DoP&T’ and the ‘Attorney General of India’ on the specific clarification sought by the Parliamentary Committee on welfare of SCs & STs and requested PGM(Pers) to consider all the long awaited regular promotions in all the Cadres in the light of the recent Clarifications contained in DoT OM dated 13.10.2020. PGM (Pers) after patient hearing mentioned that the BSNL Management is trying to sort out the Promotion issue with a workable solution acceptable to all through discussions.


(c) Discrepancies in the Provisional Seniority list No.9 of SDE(T) for the Promotion to DE(T): We appraised the PGM (Pers.) about the discrepancies observed in the Provisional Seniority list No.9 of SDE(T) for the promotion to DE(T) issued by the Pers Branch on 10.08.2020 and we categorically mentioned that the Provisional Seniority List No. 9 is not prepared purely on the basis of the date of joining in accordance with the judgment pronounced by Hon’ble Supreme Court, but it is prepared on the basis of Date of Joining within the vacancy Year.(c)    


Any RR amendment is applicable from that date (that is Prospective in nature) but not on retrospectively. In this regard, GS explained that AIBSNLEA CHQ has received more than 400 representations which have already been forwarded to Pers. Branch and requested the PGM(Pers) to finalise the list without any deviation from the Hon’ble Court Orders so as to avoid any further Litigation. (d)   


PGM (Pers.) mentioned that it will not be finalized immediately and he is already occupied in several other important tasks and it will be better to have a detailed discussion  in this regard in the first week of January’ 2021. PGM (Pers) assured that the issue will be discussed and the discrepancies will be removed and the list will be finalized.


(d)  Consideration of request transfers in the Cadre of AGM/CAO/SDE/AO:- We requested PGM(Pers.) to consider the pending request transfers in the Cadre of AO/SDE/AGM/CAO. PGM (Pers.) mentioned that all pending genuine request transfers will be considered and it will be issued shortly after getting the due approval from the Competent Authority.


(e) Consideration of Regular Promotion in the Cadre of DGM(T)  and  DGM(Finance): GS requested for the consideration of  DGM (Adhoc) to Regular Promotion in both Telecom & Finance Streams. GS explained that the issue was discussed with CMD BSNL, Director (HR) and Director (Finance) from Jan, 2020 onwards in view of the vacuum created due to VRS-19. 


GS further mentioned that as on date only 150 DGM(T) and 12 DGM (Finance) Adhoc are working in BSNL as against the Sanctioned Strength of 1331 and 402 respectively. All Adhoc DGMs have already completed 4 years of Regular service in DE/CAO (STS Grade) as on 1st Jan 2020 and as per BSNL MS RR- 2009, all are eligible for Regular DGM Promotion. Moreover they have completed 3 to 4 years as Ad-hoc DGM also and No Financial implication/ monetary benefit/Reservation issue will be involved in this promotion.


PGM (Pers) mentioned that due to Rule 206 case, the DGM (T) Regular promotions could not be processed. He also mentioned that regular DGM Promotions in Finance Stream will also be considered along with the Telecom Wing.

GS writes to Shri P.K.Purwar, CMD BSNL regarding immediate conduction of LDCE – 33% quota as per SDE(T) RR from  the Vacancy Year 2011-12 onwards CPC was not conducted for the issuance of the Promotion orders from JTO(T)  SDE (T) for the vacancy year 2011-12 onwards for SCF 67% quota and through LDCE 33% quota as per existing SDE(T) RR from among the eligible JTOs. The 1999 Batch LICE JTOs and the BSNL JTOs recruits including 2001 Batch onwards are still waiting for their first promotion for the last 6 to 20years.


Last DPC was conducted in June 2018 for the vacant posts upto the Vacancy Year 2010-11 for SCF quota hence, for the LDCE quota promotions upto the vacancy year 2010-11 were made through LDCE 2015. The LDCE for next vacancy year 2011-12 is still to be announced even after delay of five years and two years have been passed since the last SCF & LDCE promotions issued in June’2018. We are unable to understand that how can we call it as Fast Track promotion of JTO to SDE (T).


AIBSNLEA is representing this matter at different level for quite long time. It is learnt that the CPC work is going on in Pers. Branch for consideration of Promotion orders from JTO(T) to SDE(T) under SCF 67% quota from the Vacancy Year 2011-12 onwards. Likewise BSNL Management has to conduct the LDCE under 33% quota as per SDE RR in a time bound manner. Sir, as per SDE(T) RR, LDCE is to be conducted every year in a time bound manner. But it is a matter of deep concern that LDCEs were conducted only three times (2007, 2012 & 2015) during the span of 20 years since BSNL formation. The last LDCE exam was conducted only in 2015 i.e. for the Vacancy Year 2010-11, for which the promotion orders were issued only in June, 2018 along with promotion orders of SCF quota.

We would therefore request your good self to kindly intervene in the matter and issue instructions to the Officers concerned to immediately notify the LDCE for the due vacant posts of SDE (T) as per existing SDE (T)RR  so that the young JTOs of BSNL may get their first due fast track promotion in time and serve the Company with a better zeal and enthusiasm.
