(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.

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)

In this regard, GS explained that AIBSNLEA CHQ has received more than 400 representations which have already been forwarded to Pers.

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.
