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, 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.
