GS writes to Shri Anupam Shrivatava, CMD/BSNL:

Notification for Recruitment of Management Trainee (External) – Recruitment from External candidates and placing them above the existing Executives, virtually killing the career growth will demoralize thousands of highly talented and experienced Executives working in BSNL. Evolve a fast track promotion policy to promote talented internal candidates through meaningful rigorous screening mechanism to occupy higher positions after implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy approved by the BSNL Board and promoting all the eligible Executives to the higher grades. 

As far as so-called internal MT is concerned, the need of the hour is to get DGM level Executives left with sufficient service to head the company from among the experienced internal candidates by meaningful rigorous screening. There is no point in giving chance to internal candidates at E3, E4, E5 scales to compete for a post in E3 scale.

SNEA demands:

1) Review the decision to recruit Management Trainees from open market at E3 scale and evolve a suitable fast track promotion policy to promote the Internal talent to high management positions through rigorous screening.

2) Before any such attempt, promote all the eligible candidates and bring parity and uniformity in promotions for the existing Executives in equivalent cadres by implementing the CPSU Cadre Hierarchy w.e.f. 01.07.2018 as approved by the BSNL Board.

Option for Group Term Insurance (GTI):

All the remaining Executives also submit their opinions immediately. All those upto age group of 50 shall opt for the GTI as it is very much beneficial for them. 

No medical certificate is required for this scheme which is the main advantage. The premium will remain as the same till the retirement (even after crossing the age of 50). This is an initiative taken by SNEA for the welfare of our young comrades. All CSs and SSA Secretaries may contact our members and make them to submit the options through ERP before 20.12.2018.

All the Executives are requested to exercise their option before 20.12.2018.

GS and President met Shri R K Khandelwal, Joint Sec (A)/DoT and DIR(PSU) and held discussions on the BSNL proposal for replacement of E1A and E2A pay scales with standard pay scales of E2 and E3 w.e.f 01.01.2007. Since he is posted as JS recently, he is not aware of the details and we tried to explain to him.

It is reliably learned that as assured to AUAB, a very positive recommendation on Pension Contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum of the pay scale is sent by DoT to Ministry of Finance and it reached MoF. We hope a positive decision from MoF shortly. This will take us one step close to 3rd PRC.

One cannot imagine implementation of 3rd PRC without settling this issue. After 3rd PRC implementation, Pension Contribution alone will shoot up to about Rs 2420 Crores (presently it is less than 200 Cr if it is on actual basic pay), it will be about Rs 875 Cr (with 15% fitment). A difference of more than 1500 Cr in Pension contribution alone. Even for 0% fitment also, BSNL has to pay Rs 2420 Cr as Pension Contribution! This is the reason why AUAB given top priority to settle this issue before 3rd PRC.
