Meeting of Core Committee of the Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations with CMD BSNL:

CMD conducted a meeting with the members of Core Committee of Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations and discussed regarding true implementation of recently launched on 1th May 2015 the revolutionary schemes for revival of BSNL i.e. Free Night Calling from BSNL land lines to any number of any operator in India between 9pm to 7am and Free Roaming for incoming calls on BSNL mobiles. Director (CFA), GM (NWP-CFA), GM (NWO-CM), GM (PP, S&M and Infra) were present in the meeting. GS AIBSNLEA as Core Committee member attended the meeting

 

CMD initiated the discussion to give a wide publicity of the schemes and their implementations so that new customers for both land line and mobile are generated. He mentioned that the sole purpose of conducting the meeting to have a joint effort for revival of BSNL. God has given the window to avail the opportunity through these new schemes and such opportunities come once in life. He impressed upon to organise Melas, improve quality of service to attract more and more customers to BSNL. Each and every employee should involve him/herself for revival of BSNL.

 

Director (CFA) informed that WiFi modems are available and the cost is now reduced to Rs. 1500/-. It should also be given wide publicity.

 

The concerned GMs informed that during the last Financial Year land line connection were added in the range of 8 lakhs but after launch of these schemes there is a jump of 36% in the land line segment and during May 2015 the increase in landline connection is 11.6 lakhs. Now during the July 2015, it has already crossed 15 lakhs connections.  And there is a scope of further increase in this segment up to 30 lakhs connections per month.

 

Regarding MNP, the port-in which was earlier negative has converted into positive upto 1 lakh line per month. With these developments the revenue will also increase shortly.

 

CMD emphasized proper monitoring on franchise and retail outlets. Concerned GM informed that as per franchise policy franchise premises is to be visited daily by Managers (SDEs/JTOs) and Retail outlets by the concerned TTAs/TMs.

 

Before launching of these schemes the disconnection was 1.20 lakh per month. Now up to 15th July 2015 the disconnection is reduced to 40-45 Thousands. Also Ten (10) Telecom Circles are coming to positive side i.e. A & N,  Assam, Chennai TD, Haryana, Jharkhand, J&K, NE-I, Punjab, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu Circles.

 

Director (CFA) further informed that in case of DNP, the incoming facility will now be allowed for 60 days instead of earlier 30 days. The DNPs are also deferred by pursuing customers in view of the newly launched schemes.

 

Core Committee leaders apprised the actual status of implementation of these schemes in field units and the efforts taken by the Forum in this regard. But the response from Branches and Circles is not encouraging hence Circles/SSA Heads should be directed to hold meeting with the Circle/Branch level Forum leaders to mobilize and involve the employees for the success of these schemes. They also apprised about the scarcity of material in some circles mainly drop wire i.e. Karnataka, Maharashtra, MP, Gujarat, Haryana, Kerala Circles etc.

 

In Kerala Circle the main problem is of scarcity of man power since the contractual labor are on strike and TMs are retiring every month. Similarly to meet the demand of NTCs 5 Pair cable requirement is also there. Some more suggestions were given by the Core Committee to make these schemes popular. Core Committee also informed that some retired Executives/Non-executives have offered their free services for promotion of these schemes purely on volunteer basis has to be encouraged. CMD assured to look into all the valuable suggestions and directed concerned GMs to have regular interaction with the members of Core Committee on these issues.

 

Director (CFA) mentioned that he himself or his GMs may be apprised regarding shortage of material, if any in Circles/SSAs through SMS or in person by the members of the Core Committee.

 

Core Committee members extended thanks to the CMD BSNL for conducting the meeting.

United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA  Meeting with the Director (HR):

 

United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA  held a meeting with the Dir(HR) along with the Sr GM(SR) , GM(Estt), GM(Pers), GM(FP), Addl GM(BW), AGM(Elect)  in the Board room at 12 hrs to discuss the following demands. GS, AGS (C/E/A/TF), FS and AFS from AIBSNLEA and GS, CS Delhi, CWC Member Delhi from AIGETOA attended the meeting. The Dir (HR) mentioned that the HR cell is for the employees and all genuine issues should be resolved in favor of the employees to motivate them so that they contribute their utmost to the BSNL for restoring its lost glory. UF assured its fullest cooperation. Dir (HR) initiated discussions on the four demands of the UF as hereunder:

1)  Superannuation benefits to Direct Recruited executives as per the provision of sub-rule (23) of rule 37A of CCS pension rule and as per DPE guidelines:  BSNL should contribute 12% of Basic + DA as Superannuation Benefits in respect of Direct Recruits and the effective date of implementation of Superannuation benefits of BSNL Recruited Employees must be 01.10.2000.

Reply: As per the direction of Dir (HR), the GM (Estt) submitted a gist of the pensionary benefits available to the absorbed employees vis-à-vis to the DR employees considering present proposal of 3% contribution which shows that direct recruits will get more pension on their retirement. United Forum was not satisfied with the calculation submitted by GM (East) as same is not covering the actual retirement benefit available till death of employees. UF pleaded for 12% contribution from BSNL side as per the DPE order and submitted the actual calculation which shows that even after 12% of contribution towards pension fund direct recruits will get only 1/8th pension in comparison to absorbed employees. After some discussions the Dir (HR) appreciated our concern and mentioned that management has proposed 3% contribution as superannuation benefit which is cleared by BSNL MC and is pending with BSNL Board Remuneration Committee for clearance and thereafter by BSNL board, based on the calculations submitted by the GM (Estt), which in her opinion is a balance between absorbed and DR employees.  Dir (HR) directed the GM (Estt) to have separate meeting with UF to understand the calculation of each other within 2-3 days' time so that the pensionary benefits of the absorbed employees and the BSNL recruited employees are on equal footing. Director (HR) was very much concern with this issue and clearly said that employer has the responsibility to secure the retrial life of it's employees. She mentioned that BSNL is ready to take decision for increasing the contribution to minimize the gap if any between absorbed and direct recruits in terms of their retrial benefits after seeing the fresh calculation to be submitted by GM (East) which consider the views of the UF. She further directed that the revised proposal, if any shall be submitted to the Remuneration Committee before the next Board Meeting. The Dir (HR) assured justice to all employees. UF submitted a detailed calculation sheet/ draft today itself and we will have further discussion with the GM (Estt) shortly on this issue.

2. Some issues related to Executive promotion policy (EPP) needs immediate settlement in addition to CPSU cadre hierarchy and  first time bound promotion after 4 years of service in all the cases as under

(a)   Time bound promotion from E-5 to E-6 to the DGMs promoted from Grp."B" Executives:

Reply: GM(Pers) informed that the issue is pending with BSNL Board for approval for the last 7-8 months.

Thereafter all the pending HR issues cleared by BSNL MC will also be approved by BSNL Board.

(b) Date of effect of Implementation of revised upgraded IDA Pay Scales for the Executives w.e.f. 1.10.2000 on notional basis:

Reply: Addl GM (BW) and GM (Pers) apprised the status of the case which is now pending in Pers cell for consideration after the comments of the GM (FP).

GM(FP) mentioned that the legal opinion from GM(Legal) has been sought and as per the advice of GM (Pers) to consider promotions on Adhoc basis after taking approval from Hon'ble CAT, Chandigarh is being taken.

Status of E2 & E3 Pay scales to JTO & SDE equivalent executives, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and First time bound promotion after four years:  AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA consistent efforts yielded result in convincing the Committee Members for recommending E2 & E3 Pay scales to SDE & JTO equivalent executives. AIBSNLEA is making sincere efforts since 2009 for implementation of the standard IDA pay scales E2 & E3 to JTO &  SDE equivalent executives respectively w.e.f. 01.01.2007 as per 2nd PRC recommendations but  the BSNL Management continued its efforts to get approved the similar pay scale to the inter-mediatory pay scales of E1A & E2A whereas the BSNL's proposal on inter-mediatory pay scales have been rejected by DoT/DPE three times . During the period when BSNL's proposal of inter-mediatory pay scales was pending in DoT for  consideration, AIBSNLEA proposed  five advance increments benefits to JTO/JAO level executives in E1 pay scales to compensate their pay deficit immediately. It was considered by Sh. K.C.G.K Pillai Committee & BSNL Board. Hence, now financial implication in granting E2 & E3  standard IDA pay scales  to JTO &  SDE equivalent executives has comes about 46 crores only. Hence, Committee agreed to recommend E2 & E3 pay scales for implementation.

In the next committee meeting, the discussion on CPSU cadre Hierarchy & First time bound promotion after four years in all the cases will take place. The Committee is expected to submit its report by the end of August, 2015 and after the approval of the Competent Authority, it will be sent to BSNL Management Committee and BSNL Board for approval.

After the approval of BSNL Board, the matter will send to DoT for approval. In this manner if every thing goes smoothly then minimum six to seven months time is required for its implementation.

AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA efforts will continue for the settlement of these pressing issues.

AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA are the member of the Committee headed by ED(NB) earlier by PGM(SR) and ED(CN) since February, 2012 at the time of its composition.

The things have started in positive direction after the struggle of United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA.

Let us strengthen executive's unity for more achievement in the days to come.

!!!!!!!  Organizational Action programs deferred for six months  !!!!!!!

Organizational Action programs deferred for six months: Three days nationwide hunger fast called by the united forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA was observed successfully all over India on first day. Executives from the nook and corner of the country participated actively and shown overwhelming support to make the programs a grand success.

Realizing the gravity and strength of the agitation, four rounds of talks were held with Senior GM (SR), GM (Pers), Director (HR) and CMD BSNL with the representatives of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA. Considering our demands and acknowledging the genuineness of the issues raised and the subsequent resentment and unrest amongst the executives, BSNL management informed us that they have deferred the internal and external MT exam for six months. We insisted that since the discussion on CPSU hierarchy is going on in the committee headed by ED (NB), any discussion on the requirement of any fast track mechanism within internal candidates should be held thereafter and MT in any form is not acceptable to us. We also pleaded with management to inform the timeline for resolution and progress on other pending HR issues discussed with Director (HR). Director (HR) appreciated our concern and directed Senior GM (SR) to issue a letter in line with the discussions.

Thereafter, CMD BSNL assured that he has been personally monitoring the developments and he is aware of the commitment given by HR wing. He further reaffirmed his commitment for resolution of the NO MT issue raised by the forum and resolution of other HR issues in a time bound manner. He also assured us that an agenda meeting with United Forum shall be held on Monday, the 13th July 2015 for his review of the HR issues. CMD BSNL emphasized on the need for exercising restraint and patience in view of the formalities associated with the matter. He also asked us to concentrate on the viability of the BSNL and making the recently launched schemes popular i.e. free night calling and free roaming and to provide quality services to the customers. We assured our fullest cooperation in his endeavor to turn around BSNL and to achieve its pristine glory.

Com GS, President AIBSNEA and President, AGS AIGETOA attended all the meetings with the management and also addressed the meeting during hunger fast at BSNL CO, New Delhi.

In response to the positive gesture shown by the BSNL management particularly CMD BSNL, forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA has decided to defer the ongoing agitation program for six months. Though, some break through has been achieved but final outcome is awaited. We sincerely hope that management will honor its commitment for implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy and resolution of pending HR issues in a time bound manner failing which we all should keep ourselves ready for resuming the deferred agitation program. At this juncture, we request all the members of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA and other executives who supported the program, to resume their duties immediately and to concentrate for the growth of BSNL. We extend our sincere gratitude and heartfelt thanks to all the office bearers, esteemed members and well-wishers for their overwhelming support to the agitation program.

                                                                                                      Appeal

- The MT recruitment process must be withdrawn to provide smooth career progression to the JTO/JAO  and SDE/AO equivalent executives in BSNL.

 

- The uncertainty created on settlement of the HR issues due to introduced hurdle of Remuneration Committee must be avoided and all the HR issues cleared by the BSNL Management Committee should be approved by the BSNL Board instead of sending to Board’s Remuneration Committee.

 

Guidelines for the proposed Relay Hunger Fast from 07th July 2015 to 09th July 2015:

·      All members of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA should participate in the Hunger Fast Program dividing themselves into 3 batches for 3 days. Unwell members should also participate, however, may be for a lesser period.

·      Hunger Fast should start at 10.00 hrs and continue up to 18.00 hrs. All the participants must take their seat by 1000 hrs availing casual leave for the day and must not leave the place except for natures call.

·      The participants may take only drinking water if required and nothing else (tea, biscuit etc) during the period of the Fast.

·     Other members, who are not sitting for the Hunger Fast on that day, must attend the camp during lunch hours for demonstration. Remember that they are also on “Work According to Rule” Program hence their full concentration should be towards the agitation only and nowhere else.

·      Use of mobile phones should be minimum and only for urgent cause. Attending official calls sitting at the “Hunger Fast” place must be avoided.

·      Decorate the “Hunger Fast” suitably by banners and posters displaying the demands and the deprivations.

·      Remember future of the executives is depending on successful implementation of the agitation program.

OBSERVATION OF AIBSNLEA

Status of the Court case in JTO to SDE promotion in Hon'ble High Court Kerala at Ernakulam: The  information  published by SNEA(I) in their CHQ website  on 25th and 26th June, 2015 regarding  JTO to SDE promotion case  pending in the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala,  is wrong  and misleading. SNEA(I) claims that they have filed an MA along with BSNL for urgent hearing. This is not true. In this matter the SNEA(I) is not a party at all in the Hon'ble CAT as well in the appeal pending with Hon'ble HC.  Only AIBSNLEA  impleaded as  rep. No.16  in the OA filed by some of the JTOs in CAT Ernakulam.  No other association was a party in it. As they are not a party in it,   how can  they say that they ( SNEA(I) ) filed an  MA for early posting in HC?

AIBSNLEA got impleaded in this case in CAT,  only to protect the genuine and  legitimate interests of its members. We do not know why the other association  did not became a  party in it with  their own identity. But they pretend otherwise and publish false statements to misguide general members.

It is stated by the SNEA(I) that the "Hon'ble court directed to complete the service to AIBSNLEA and then list the case". This itself implies that, notice has not so far been served to AIBSNLEA in this matter. There is no case of not accepting the notice by respondent No.16 (AIBSNLEA). On the other hand,  there is a case of not serving the notice by the authority concerned  which is actually a matter beyond the control of the respondent. However, AIBSNLEA filed a fresh Vakalthnama and entrusted the matter with a competent advocate in the High Court for taking notice and proceeding further in this matter, without waiting for a formal notice service. Our general members may please realize that the other association is simply trying  to fish out of troubled water.

This unjust write-up of SNEA(I) mislead the JTOs and is nothing but outcome of their frustration in the ongoing situations and to divert the attention of executives.

AIBSNLEA in true sense is safeguarding the interest of entire BSNL executives community that is why immediately AIBSNLEA got impleaded in Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam in this case whereas SNEA(I) did not bothered to impleade in the case.  AIBSNLEA will ensure early hearing of the case to break the stalemate in JTO to SDE promotion.

OBSERVATION OF SNEA(I)

This is rejoinder to some of the misleading information published in the website of AIBSNLEA. SNEA(I) never claimed that it is directly a party in the JTO to SDE promotion case. For strategic reasons, SNEA(I) fighting the case in the name of the additional respondents no 6 to 14 and private respondent 7 from Chennai and 8 from Jabalpur who are SNEA(I) members in the original case at CAT and High Court(HC) by engaging Sr Lawyer Sri. O. V. Radhakrishan. The reply, MA, urgent memo etc will be filed in the name of the respondents. In Chennai also SNEA(I) fought the case in the name of private respondents only. Similarly in most of the cases, due to strategic reasons, SNEA(I) is fighting in the name of affected party, eg: 1966 seniority, 270 seniority, 147 seniority etc. In few cases only, SNEA(I) is directly a party like ITS case, 3G case, MT case, LDCE  case etc.

In the name of private respondents, SNEA(I) is directly party in the case. AIBSNLEA simply impleaded in the CAT and even they couldnot include a single affected party (JTO) from Kerala or elsewhere alongwith them! It is admitted by them that they are not filed the vakalathnama in the Hon HC even after 5 months since February. Without filing vakalathnama and appointing a lawyer, how they are fighting for the JTOs in the HC for the last 5 months, it is not known? If they are sincere in the case why they didn’t filed the vakalathnama and engaged the lawyer for 5 months? Why they are waiting for the notice from court? They should have available in the court from day one to defend the case. Are they not aware of the fact that appeal is filed in the HC?  Everytime in the website they are writing that they are fighting in the high court but in reality they are not appeared even once in the HC. In the CAT also just they filed an impleadment application but their lawyer was not present in most of the days even on the final hearing dates in the Tribunal. This fact we didn’t reported earlier keeping trade union ethics. Whether they impleaded in the case just to delay the case like this? However, we are very happy to know that now they filed the vakalathnama on getting intimation from us.

Cause list of the case at Hon Ernakulam High Court on 25.06.2015

 

GS informed GS and AGS of AIBSNLEA about the unfortunate development at Hon Ernakulam High Court where the urgent application for early hearing of the JTO to SDE promotion case is not heard as AIBSNLEA, one of the respondent in the case not accepted the notice and filed vakalathnama which resulted in “service not complete”. The appeal was filed in the Hon HC in the first week of Feb, 2015 but even after 5 months, they could not accept the notice and file vakalathnama. The handling of such cases which affects the career growth of thousands of JTOs by the Associations so casually is unimaginable. However they promised early action.

Meeting with Director (HR) further failed- Make two days Dharna 100% success:

Today Director (HR) called the representatives of Forum (AIGETOA+AIBSNLEA) for a meeting again. GS AIBSNLEA, FS AIBSNLEA, GS AIGETOA, AIP AIGETOA and AGS AIGETOA attended the meeting held in the chamber of Dir (HR). Director (HR) explained that some of the HR issues are already in pipeline and for MT issue it is needed to take BSNL board into confidence before taking any decision. In view of this Director (HR) requested to withdraw the agitation programme. Forum requested Director (HR) for giving concrete time bound, written assurance for the resolution of long pending HR issues and immediate withdrawal of the MT recruitment and in the absence of MT withdrawal, it is not possible for us to withdraw our agitation if the recruitment process of MT remains on and HR issues are not resolved. Although Director (HR) has shown some positive sign but in the absence of any concrete decision, the talk is further failed.

This is the matter of our career and dignity, hence Forum has no option other than to continue with the proposed agitation. Forum will not withdraw this agitation till unconditional withdrawal of MT and concrete resolution of other HR issues.  

Friends, Forum is fully confident that we will be able stop the unjustified and unwarranted MT recruitment and resolve our long pending HR issues. All the Executives are requested to ensure full participation on 9th and 10th June-2015 to make two days Dharna a grand success and be ready for further intensification of the protest actions.

The facts on Re-Constitution of Committee to discuss E2 and E3 standard IDA Pay Scales to JTO and SDE equivalent executives, implementation CPSU Cadre Hierarchy in BSNL and first time bound financial up gradation (Time bound promotion) after 4 years in all the cases.

It is a known fact that a committee headed by Shri N. K. Narang, PGM(SR) was constituted in February-2012 with the members of GM(SR), GM(Pers.), GM(Estt.), GM(Rest), GM(FP), GM(EF), Sr. GM(NWP-CFA) and DGM(Pers.) and General Secretaries of AIBSNLEA, SNEA(I) & AIGETOA after the agitation program of United Forum of Executives Associations but the discussions were derailed due to the uncalled for approach of some office bearers of an association. Further, the Committee was re-constituted under the chairman ship of Shri. M.C. Choubey, PGM (NWP-CFA) [At present ED (CN)] but since then some of the committee members i.e. GM (Pers.), GM (Estt), GM (SR) and GM (Restg.) have been transferred and ED (CN) himself is extremely busy in his office work hence, the committee is further re-constituted. AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA has been assured by CMD BSNL on 6th May, 2015 itself but we did not publish it just because it was an administrative arrangement.  That day itself CMD directed Director (HR), BSNL to hold meeting with AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA on pending HR issues.  Accordingly, meetings are being arranged with AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA for which the minutes are not being issued in view of the ensuing referendum of majority association.  But some executive association unilaterally without having discussion with the constituent associations of United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations launched series of agitation Programs in the last two years on the common issues which both the associations AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA are pursuing with the management continuously. Earlier, AIGETOA conducted agitation program during 2014 & the so called Association did not come forward to support the agitation despite repeated requests from AIGETOA and unqualified support extended by AIBSNLEA. The fact remains that the agitation approach of an Association in continuous manner has derailed the negotiated settlement on common issues during the last two years and perhaps that was the mission of that association.  Now also the same Association is claiming that they only can get settled the HR issues individually then why they are allowing BSNL Management to make AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA the members of the committee? AIBSNLEA never created hurdles to the actions of any other executive associations and its moto is settlement of the issue, may it be by any Association or by the management itself, which is more important rather than doing politics with the issues, hence AIBSNLEA is never over jealous to the success of any association nor interested in going deep about the activities of other Associations, provided the claimed success is not mere an eyewash.

POINTS FOR DISCUSSION IN

MANAGEMENT  CUM DEVELOPMENT MEETING – 24.04.2015

   

C.S.C. –  

Opening of Customer Service Centers/Customer Care Nodes from 08.00 Hrs. to 20.00 Hrs. or at least 08.00 Hrs. to 18.00 Hrs. Staff posted at C.S.Cs. should be given weekly off on rotational basis.

 Fault Clearance –

 Mechanism must be adopted for rectification of faults on Sundays and Holidays and faults must not kept pending on account of holidays.

 Improvement of OFC Media –

 Out sourcing of OFC media maintenance may be considered now to avoid delay of maintenance work. Every month co-ordination meeting should be held with ETR & ETP to review . Ring within the SSA should be function properly.  

Micro SIMs –  

Micro SIMs should be available always at CSCs and arrangement of SIM cutting tool at CSCs may be made for change from normal SIM to Micro SIM.  

Telephone Bills in respect of BSNL employees –  

Printing and distribution of telephone bills of “0” figure in respect of BSNL employees for their residential service/broadband connection may be stopped.

Payment of Postpaid bills through C.Topup –

Payment of Postpaid bill  through C Top up by giving target to the Franchisees. If the above service have introduced through Franchisees, Postpaid customers may get relief for making the payment of their bill.

 Timely issuance of Landline & Broadband bills - 

 Suitable mechanism may be introduced for timely issuance and distribution of Landline and Broadband bills. For this purpose Circle as well SSA level meeting may be arranged with Postal Authority. Incentive equal to postal commission may be paid to the line staff for distribution of Landline/Broadband bills and collection thereof. Procedure may be adopted for hand delivery of Bill for more then Rs 2000 through staff . 

 Repairing of faulty RU Cards - 

 Through out WBTC, so many RU Cards are faulty which may be viewed from “Sancharika Booking”. Some faults are pending since 2012.  Actually nobody checking the fault booking status at Sancharika. Faults booking status at Sancharika may be viewed seriously.  

Provision of RF Tool –  

Mobile service in WBTC was introduced in the year 2002.  But till date, exclusive Drive Test Tool has not been provided to all the SSAs. At present WBTC is having 8 Nos. Agilent, 9 Nos. TEMS and 2 Nos. NEMO for planning activity whereas WBTC is having 14 SSAs + 2 Divisions. Special attention is required for procurement of additional R.F.Tool.       

Provision of 14.4 Mbps Speed for 3G Mobile Service –  

Phase-V Tender envisaged provisioning of 14.4 Mbps Speed per sector per carrier in the 3G Network. The compliance of above tender requirement was sought from the Phase-V Vendor M/S Erricson. M/S Erricson has agreed in the year 2010 to provide 14.4 Mbps Speed in 3G Network of BSNL. But the same has not yet been implemented under W.B.T.C. This has caused huge loss of BSNL customers.  High level investigation may be made why the same has not yet been implemented in WBTC in contravention of the tender clause.

Closer of commercially unviable hired IP Sites –  

Information received from BSNL HQ that IP Sites having traffic ≤ 10  Earlg. Like ‘O’ – 25,  ≤ 3 = 62, ≤ 5 = 78,  ≤ 10 = 117, should be identified at Circle level and SSAs may try to improve the identified IP sites otherwise close the same.  

Life expired Batteries of BTS Sites -  

In respect of total BTSs installed during 2002 to 2009, life of all most all the Batteries have been expired but life span of Power Plant is 15 years. Now modified GR published by BSNL management in respect of Power Plant. It is proposed that while replacement of battery is being done, simultaneously module of the Power Plant  may also be replaced. If the functioning of the Power Plant may not be improved, there will be no use for installation of battery.

RNP/Burned Modules should be replaced as well as premature scrapping of Power Plant may be allowed specially for VELERE Type Modules supplied by M/S Nortel. If the same is not done, no improvement will take place in respect of QOS of Mobile Service. Even circle office called tender but failed  

Tender for RIGGER is much essential for Minilink, VSWR rectification and orientation etc. which is not available in WBTC. It should be done from Circle level for improvement of service.  

Marketing Policy  -  

It should be reviewed very seriously.   Separate detailed  discussion is required.  

Sharing of BTS sities –  

Initially Circle Office did not follow the rules of sharing as per MSA. Now Circle Office  is giving heavy pressure to the SSAs for sharing the sites.……                       

thout site agreement with Landlord, the RFIE was issued from circle office. During  issuing of order, they have mentioned that “ tentative  date of RFIE”. What is the meaning of tentative date. It is presumed that during this period site agreement with land lord will be done. But every body knows that site agreement is completely depends on LAND LORD. Field officer can only pursued the same. Actually CM section of circle office by passing their responsibility. The circle office issuing the letter to the SSA heads to fix up for responsibility against officers/officials who are not taking action to make the sites ready for installation. Even they have issued letter stating that “unwanted delay due to mainly WHIMSICAL attitude towards completion of negotiation & agreement with land lord .

Why circle office except the service order FORM which is not at available in the MSA or any where? It is clearly written the head that RFIE check list. Is there any form in the name of RFIE check list in the MSA?  Then question is  that why it has happen? Our demand a high level enquiry committee may be constituted in this regard for fixing up the responsibility.   

Guidelines on rent enhancement sought by Landlords - 

 Guidelines was available that E.C. Committee may consider rent revision for leasing out sites in a time bound manner as a business care by taking into account.  On the other hand in the consolidates instructions/guidelines, it has clearly mentioned that E.C. of SSA (SSA Head/IFA) it may consider the rent like as above. However, additional financial liability of BSNL should not in general be more than 20% of the existing rent. Similarly CGMs with the concurrence of IFA are empowered to increase up to 25% only in respect of rare cases. In this regard specific clear instruction is required from competent authority.

Business Area Mapping –

Re-organization of Administration  & Operation of Telecom. by Business Area Mapping of SSA is completely different thing.

First as per guidelines, re-categorization of the SSAs will be done i.e. Distribution of SAG level officers in Telecom. Operation on provisional basis based on revenue earning viz. 10 Crore – TDE, 10-30 Crores – TDM, 30-300 Crores – GM, > 300 Crores – PGM vide No. 4-3/2011-Rest,/Vol.II Dtd. 28.10.2013. It was implemented partially, step by step between August 2014 to Sept 2014.

Where re-organization of PAU (Primary Accounting Unit) was issued from Corporate Office. But W.B.T.C. implemented the same in the name of Business Area Mapping – before implementation of ERP. It should be thoroughly discussed.  

Realization of IUC charges from different operators in time -  

Finance Wing should be concentrate on realization of huge outstanding. Circle IFA should concentrate as per minutes of the meeting Dtd. 27.7.2012 at BSNL HQ.  Stress should be given for realization of IUC charges from different operators in time. Reduction of outstanding dues is very low. This needs to be analyzed & n/a to be taken for incurring cash inflow

 Training regarding finalization of Tender procedure –

Instead of following the standard guidelines, every officers are following their own procedure for finalization of tender. Even for supply of Diary 2015, which is supposed to be supplied during 1st week of January, have not yet been finalized.

Tender should be finalized following the guidelines framed by the management. Flow Chart for procurement process should be strictly followed. A practical training may be arranged for Tender procedure. A check list may be circulated or a book may be published by WBTC for speedy finalization of Tender.     

HR Issue –  

Our Association is not satisfied about the policy taken by W.B.T.Circle, especially in Finance Wing. Longest stayed list of JAO has not yet been published as per Corporate Office Guidelines. Repeated transfer orders are being issued in Finance Wing which may be avoided.     

 

Development Meeting at SSA level may be arranged on regular intervals by involving Unions/Associations.  

 

                At last,    WBT circle having less than 50%  man power .Is it possible to maintain entire volume of work by this man power ?

Works  related with BROAD BAND, NOFN, ERP, NKN Project, NMEICT, e-COURT Project, SREI, SAMADHAN, WIMAX, e-DISTRIBUTOR, THRESHOLD/CREDIT LIMIT,KUBER,SWAN Project, CCNTS Project, FITH, Project SMILE, B.B.KIOSK, LWE Project, UDDAN, USOF, SOLER PV System, MOBILE for BOARDER& NAXALIST Area, Project VIJOY, C-DOT Card REPAIRING, CDMA, NGN, VAS, SCREEPING, Etc…ETC…..  

Considering the situation of circle ,should not issue instruction for fixing responsibility .It will be better & more helpful to give some appreciation letter  which may encourage the staffs & officers  that is why our Association demanding since long  “ Best Customer Service Award “ under WBT . Hope this time our request will be consider.

As per decision of circle committee meeting, the following decision has been adopted by circle secretary

MINUTES OF THE CENTRAL OFFICE BEARERS AND CIRCLE SECRETARIES MEETING HELD ON 25th and 26th February 2015 AT ANDHRA ASSOCIATION BUILDING, LODHI ROAD, NEW DELHI.

Com. P Venugopal, President in his opening remark mentioned that more than 35000 signature have been obtained and submitted to the Hon’ble PM.  The Parliament March was a successful.  The presence of the CMD in the meeting on 25.2.2015 was successful and a great achievement for all of us.  This could happen just because of  the relation of our GS with the CMD.  He mentioned that membership collection is very very poor and sad.  It is noticed that the circles are not keen on collecting the subscription is very much clear.  Regular meetings are not conducted by the circles and subscriptions are not collected regularly.  It is very much difficult to meet the day to day expenditure of the CHQ.  Now a time has come, if we do not improve the financial condition, the status of AIBSNLEA will be similar to that of BSNL.  We are not shouldering our responsibility.

 

The agenda item were discussed and approved.

 

After the self-introduction and observing two minutes silence in the memory of departed comrades, the GS report was presented.

 

In the report GS mentioned that the meeting here at New Delhi for the Central Office Bearers, Advisors and Circle Secretaries meeting of AIBSNLEA, after All India Conference at Nashik from 10th  November, 2013 to 12th November, 2013 and CWC Meeting held ay Hyderabad in August,2015. In today’s meeting, we shall have the objective assessment of the efforts that we have initiated and the result that we could achieve after CWC Meet Hyderabad. We may also like to decide here the future plan of actions on Organisational Matters, Membership Verification of Executives Associations, Viability of BSNL & Status of long pending HR issues.

 

GS mentioned that this Central Office Bearers, Advisors and Circle Secretaries Meeting is being held at the most crucial period at New Delhi when BSNL has notified referendum of majority Executives’ Associations and election is decided to be held in May’2015. BSNL is incurring losses for the last five years and may further face loss in this year. After CWC Meeting, Hyderabad, all the resolutions were immediately submitted to BSNL Management and DoT administration for settlement. All the issues of importance have been discussed in the informal meetings with Secretary DoT/CMD BSNL and other Sr. Officers of DoT/BSNL. But still many issues remains unresolved.  

 

He also mentioned in his report that in the Organisational front, we are to ascertain that Circles/Branches are functioning well by holding regular Branch/Circle elections and all the organisational action calls given by CHQ are implemented successfully. The membership has increased at Branches / Circles and some more efforts are required to enroll more & more executives to strengthen the Association, in view of the proposed membership verification of executive association. CHQ/Circle quota payment has to be ensured. There should be critical examination of our strength and weaknesses, so that proper corrective measures, wherever necessary, could be decided.

 

He also mentioned that we are to discuss the status of HR issues related to various cadres, which are to be taken up by AIBSNLEA at the appropriate level. Settlement of the issues is too judged on proper perspective, so that the unresolved issues could be planned to get resolved expeditiously.

 

BSNL's very existence and its viability is one of the important issue which need a thorough discussion. Performance of BSNL in all fronts have to be analyzed properly. We shall have to analyze, why the growth of BSNL is not up to our expectations and come out with concrete proposals to make BSNL a strong and viable Organisation. Implementation of ERP needs detailed discussions.

 

GS stated that the Confidence building measures in customers shall have to be given priority. Strategies are to be evolved for more revenue generation and its collection. This meeting may suggest reducing the operational cost and stoppage of unwanted expenditures. Delay in procurement of material i.e. drop wire, SIM cards, PIJF Cables/Jointing kits, MLLN/CPE Modems etc is adversely affecting the growth of BSNL and arbitrary deployment of ITS officers in BSNL are also matters of serious concern to all of us. This meeting should decide the definite line of action to get resolve the long pending issues and burning items related to viability of BSNL.

 

GS also stated that implementation of the assured Promotional Avenue i.e. CPSU Cadre hierarchy, implementation of E-2 & E-3 IDA pay scales to JTO/SDE equivalent executives, BSNL’s HR Plan will take the centre stage during the discussions in this meeting. We are aware that the Management is not ready to implement CPSU Cadre hierarchy and E-2, E-3 standard IDA Pay scales. This meeting would also like to adopt time bound action plan to get the issue sorted out once for all.

 

GS mentioned that this would  certainly be an important meeting before referendum. During the period, after 4th All India Conference, Nashik, Maharastra Circle and CWC Meeting at Hyderabad. AIBSNLEA’s consistent and untiring efforts yielded result in getting settled many issues. There had been numerous important developments which needs thorough and critical examination.

 

GS in his report requested to discuss the organizational status and activities of the association, mainly covering the period since Aug’2014 after CWC Meet Hyderabad. 

 

The report were discussed para by para in detail on the following points.

 

1.    Membership

 

2.    Contribution towards legal fund

 

3.    Membership verification of the Executives Association in BSNL:

 

4.    Regular Election of Branch/Circle Body of AIBSNLEA

 

5.    Journal/Circular/Website

Com. Amit Gupta in his speech welcomed Com. Udayasuryan back to the AIBSNLEA.  He requested Udayasurayan

to take similar action in Tamil Nadu to re-organisation and efforts to get the AIBSNLOA merged to AIBSNLEA.  

Many other circles AIBSNLOA is already merged. 

 

GS appreciated the decision of Com Udayasuryan to coming back to the AIBSNLEA by amalgamating the

AIBSNLOA and the strength of the AIBSNLEA, Chennai Telephones has increased.  The house welcomed the

decision of the Com. Udayasuryan.

GS, AGS(HQ) attended the meeting on Switching over to the on line examination pattern for BSNL internal and external examination arranged by GM (Recruitment) BSNL CO to discuss with all the BSNL unions and Associations. We welcome the move to switch over the on line examination pattern and suggested that examination fee from internal candidates should not be there, the number of attempts should be unlimited and the age limit should be 55 years instead of 50 years. We pleaded that LDCE from JTO (T) to SDE(T), LICE of JAOs should be immediately conducted since the syllabus have been approved and the vacancies are clarified. We also pleaded that outsider exam of JTOs may be based on GATE score. GM (Training ) appreciated our concern and assured to discuss the suggestion with the competent authority.

Finalisation of JTO R/R 2014: GM(Estt) mentioned that he will be taking up the matter in the next Board meeting for an early solution. He also mentioned that the E1 plus 5 increment benefit to JAO 2013 Batch, JTO(SRD) and PAs will also be taken in the next Board meeting.
