:CWC at Lucknow- A BRIEF REPORT ON CWC MEETING HELD AT LUCKNOW::

The CWC meeting of AIBSNLOA was held in city of Nawab Lucknow at Hotel Galaxy International in a very grand manner. CWC meeting was attended by all the CSs, CPs and CWC members. AIBSNLOA UP (East) Circle has hosted the Central Working Committee Meeting of AIBSNLOA at Lucknow on 21st and 22nd September 2018, marking another milestone in the history of AIBSNLOA. Comrades of UP(East) Circle led by Circle President Com R.P. Singh & Circle Secretary Com. D.C. Gupta, assisted by Com. K.C. Tripathi FS & Com. K. C. Yadav, VP, Com. Gautam and guided by Com. P. C.

Rajasekaran, CHQ President, in his opening remarks laid the roadmap touching all the important issues pertaining to BSNL Executives and appealed to all the CWC members for active participation in deliberations and making this CWC meeting successful. After opening remarks by Com. President, UP (E) President and CS welcomed the participants. Speaker after speaker exposed the failure of the so called Majority and support Executive Associations which have belied the expectations of those who had voted for them. The two associations, which are now formally recognised as Majority and Support associations but were enjoying facilities and patronage of Management for nearly 12 years since the year 2004, were in for criticism for their inability to settle vital issues viz. replacement of E1A and E2A scales by E2 and E3 pay scales, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy & Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL and for their role in making the simple issues more complex by taking different stands at different points of time. The meeting reiterated and approved the stand taken by AIBSNLOA on these issues and urged the CHQ to pursue these issues relentlessly. General Secretary, in his speech explained how AIBSNLOA has effectively played its role after membership verification, remaining the third association in membership. He narrated how majority associations failed to resolve any issue but AIBSNLOA has succeeded in resolving various issues related to promotions in various cadres, settlement of individual grievances of its members, Financial up-gradation up to E6 scale to DGM (Adhoc), role of AIBSNLOA in revision of pay scale of ADOL, superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees etc. The General Secretary report received unanimous approval of the meeting. Based on the views expressed by the participants during the lively deliberations, many resolutions were passed unanimously. It was decided to hold the next AIC in Chennai jointly hosted by Chennai Telephones and Tamilnadu circles.  VIEW RESOLUTIONS

BSNL CO has issued orders promoting 2855 JTOs (T) against 67% seniority cum fitness quota and another 284 JTOs subject to ascertaining their Vigilance status. This has ended the agony of the JTOs who were waiting for their promotion for more than a decade. It is really sad that many have retired during this period without getting their due promotion. When others were making merry over acceptance in principle by BSNL Board, the Executive Promotion Policy Amendment & Recruitment Rules to be implemented from 1.7.2018, AIBSNLOA was first among a few associations which demanded filling up of all existing vacancies in all grades before implementation of the EPP A&RR and sincerely worked for it. Supreme court orders on promotion with reservation and judgment of Ernakulam High Court came as timely boon. However, our gratitude goes out to the Personnel Section, right from DM, AGM, Jt.GM and GM who acted with swiftness to ensure issue of the orders and Director (HR) & CMD who were behind the decision.  VIEW ORDER

On behalf of Organisation of BSNL Unions and Associations, GS AIBSNLOA, GS BSNLWRU and GS BEA met Shri Parvesh Sahib Singh, MP, Delhi West today, submitted a letter explaining the justification and rights of the BSNL employees in getting pay revision at par with other PSUs. They elaborated on all the points mentioned in the letter and questioned DoT's stand that BSNL is not eligible for pay revision as per the 'affordability' clause, since the same DoT approved pay revision w.e.f. 1.1.2007 for MTNL employees when the 'affordability' clause was very much there in the Government decision on Second Pay Revision Committee and when MTNL was incurring losses consecutively for several years then. They explained the role of BSNL in all important government projects including Digital India, the fact that BSNL was incurring losses only because of it implementing the social obligation of the Government by providing financially unviable services in rural and remote areas. They mentioned that the MOSC expressed his desire to get the pay revision implemented for BSNL employees whenever BSNL employees met him during his tour across the country, but a section fo DoT officers were reluctant to pursue BSNL proposals on the matter. They requested the MP to use his good offices to impress upon MOSC/DoT for early settlement of the issue. Shri Parvesh Sahib Singh, MP has agreed to take up the matter with the DoT as well as the MOSC..  VIEW LETTER  VIEW PHOTO

The meeting lasted nearly an hour, was cordial and facilitated exchange of views on 3rd Pay Revision for BSNL employees and formation of Tower Company. On behalf of OUA two Memoranda were submitted to CMD and discussions revolved mainly around the two issues highlighted in the Memoranda. View Memorandum on Pay Revision View Memorandum on Tower company CMD said he was very much hopeful that pay revision will be implemented for BSNL employees this year itself. He mentioned that BSNL proposals for pay revision was approved by all the four independent Directors in BSNL Board as well as the DoT representative. He said that Hon'ble MOSC was in favour of pay revision to be implemented for BSNL employees. While admitting that there were two views among DoT officers, with one section insisting to demonstrate as to how BSNL will meet the extra financial burden, he said that though BSNL revenue has gone down during the last three quarters, all efforts are being made to increase the revenue in the present quarter. He pointed out that compared to other private operators, BSNL has been doing well financially. He believed that even Jio effect will not be long lasting. He therefore appealed to all of us to work together to concentrate on revenue growth by acting as Sales & Marketing Personnel in office and PR personnel outside office. On Tower company, he said that apprehensions about formation of separate tower company are unfounded and affirmed that the BSNL Tower Company Limited is a subsdiary of BSNL formed with the sole aim of increasing revenue. Any deviation from the stated goal in the Cabinet decision will require concurrence of the Cabinet itself. The role of strategic partner, if any in future, will be limited to only monetisation of the tower assets and there is no threat of privatisation, he said. To another query from us, he categorically stated that neither VRS nor reduction in retirement age is under consideration. BSNL, MTNL merger is also not being considered, he said.

PGM(Fin) replied that our request will addressed and on receipt of account details temporary advance will be paid to the respective current account. (5)Reporting and Reviewing structure: We reiterated to re-examine the Circle administration order with reference to Reporting and Reviewing structure of DGMs in Finance wing of SSAs.PGM replied that as per convention from DOT days DGM(TR) has been reporting to the IFA (DGM-Finance) of SSA. We categorically pointed out that the Corporate office order does not say that DGM(TR) has to report to DGM(Fin) of SSA. Therefore this issue will be referred to Corporate office for clarification.
