Yesterday we met Dir(HR), BSNL to expedite JTO to SDE promotions( both LDCE and Seniority cum fitness) as the same are badly delayed. We had drawn the attention of Madam as JTOs irrespective of the quota ie LDCE and seniority cum fitness should be carried out on war footing basis. It is really sad that the date of final date of hearing on 23rd May 2018 at Honourable Ernakulam High Court was all of sudden postponed to 30th May 2018 causing lot of frustration amongst the JTOs. The case was not listed at all. We demanded that a proper inquiry may please be made into the matter.
Further, we requested madam to take all necessary steps such that the much awaited CPSU cadre hierarchy is approved in the board meeting on 28th May 2018.

GM(Restg), GM(SR), GM(CA) and GM(Estt) are the committee members. GS/SNEA also specially invited for the meeting. After the negotiations, Committee directed both LIC and SBI Life to rework on the rates and submit fresh quotes with all the attached conditions within 2 weeks.

The formal agenda meeting with DIR(HR) held today, 17.05.2018 from 11.30 AM on the following agenda. GS, President, AGS, CS/BSNLCO and senior comrade Shri V K Yadav represented SNEA. GM(SR), GM(Pers), GM(Restg) and OSD to DIR(HR) were the other participants  in the discussion from official side:

1. Implementation of Group Term Insurance (GTI) for all the BSNL Executives:

Decision: Negotiation with LIC and SBI Life on Group Term Insurance (GTI) for all the BSNL Executives will be held today itself.

2. Restoration of break in Circle Tenure on posting to soft tenure stations as provided in the Transfer policy Dated 09.05.2012:

Decision: Break in Circle Tenure will be restored.

3. Uniform First Time Bound promotion:

An anomaly created after the implementation of 2nd PRC where all the Executives are getting 1st TBP after 4-5 years after 01.01.2007 where as the seniors got it in 5 or 6 years in 2005 or 2006. All the 1993 to 2001 rect JTOs joined before 2003 are affected by this. The matter has been referred to Khan Committee and Khan Committee recommended 4-5 years instead of 4-6 years. However in order to remove the anomaly, we demanded the 1st TBP uniformly after 4 years.

Management was very much reluctant on this demand as EPP-2007 has to be amended with retrospective effect, after so many years for meeting the demand.

Decision: It will be examined and processed once CPSU Hierarchy is approved and the residency period is finalized by Board for future promotions. Further discussions will be held after the Board approval.

4. HR Integration:

There is no uniformity in deciding the policy matters like promotions, transfers etc at BSNCO/Circle/SSA level, among different wings. For promotions, vacancy year is not followed in certain wings, creating anomaly. All the request transfers after 3 years are at the company cost, as per the transfer policy. However some wings/circles are giving transfer after 2 years at company cost whereas some other wing/unit, transfer is not given on company cost even after three years. The differential treatment between different wings created large scale resentment among the Executives in different wings. For the purpose of uniform policy in the company, HR integration is to be implemented. Huge man power deployed for the same work among different wings can be spared and can be redeployed effectively.

Decision: It is agreed to follow uniform policy and best HR practices by all the wings. For its smooth implementation, a Committee will be formed to examine the various issues raised by the Assn to bring uniformity in the HR practices followed in BSNL.

5. Finalization of HR Plan.

Since CPSU Hierarchy proposal is finalised delinking the promotions from availability of posts, HR plan finalization is to be expedited. Due to non finalization of HR plan, some HR issues like E1+5 for the JTO/JAOs recruited after 2010 are not approving by the BSNL Board. Rect and Transfers can be made judiciously based on the actual assets. This will help deployment of staff in the potential areas.

Decision: The additional posts as pointed out by the Assn for trans mtce, FTTH, Leased ctts, Govt projects etc are reworked and soon it will be send to the MC for approval. Thereafter it has to be cleared by the HR Committee and then by the Board. HR Plan finalization will be expedited.

6. Increasing the number of Office bearers of the Executive Associations from 7/11 to 15 at SSA /Circle level and recognition to the body at Circle offices and Metro Dists at par with SSA level:

The number of office bearers at Circle/SSA level was 15 each before finalization of the Recognition Rules. In the new Recognition Rules, it reduced to 11 and 07 respectively which is to be reviewed. This is badly affecting the functioning of the Association at Circle/SSA level as it has to represent and accommodate all the Executives in different streams, wings including non recruiting Circles in the Circle/SSA body. The office bearer number is to be increased to 15.

The elected body at various Circle offices, Metro Dists, ITPC, BBNW, TF etc are to be treated at par with the SSA level body and necessary clarifications are to be issued.

Lot of resistance was there from the part of GM(SR) to increase the number of office bearers citing the recognition Rule provisions, cost to the company, these issues are already examined by a Committee etc. Finally DIR(HR) assured to revisit the issue with a positive mind.

Decision: The demand for increasing the number of office bearers to 15 will be re-examined and necessary amendments will be done in the Recognition Rules.

Recognition to the elected body at various Circle offices, Metro Dists, ITPC, BBNW, TF etc will be considered and necessary clarifications will be issued.

7. Office accommodation at Circle/SSA level:

Some of the Circle/SSAs are insisting for instructions from BSNLCO citing the instructions issued for accommodation to Recognised Unions and SEWA BSNL. SNEA is the Recognised Executives Assn and it should be given accommodation at Circle/SSAs. Instructions may be issued to all the Circles.

DIR(HR) was kind enough to consider the matter and of the firm opinion that Recognised Assn also should be given accommodation as others are already enjoying.

Decision: The matter will be decided shortly with a positive approach.

After the discussion on the agenda points the following issues also discussed:

Board approval for CPSU approval: DIR(HR) assured that the reply will be submitted to the Board as assured to the Assn without any change in date of effect or bench marks. The original proposal along with the reply will be send to company secretary today itself for making it as an agenda for the Board meeting on 28.05.2018. DIR(HR) is very much hopeful that this time the Board will approve the proposal.

Rule -8 cases of KTK Circle: We explained the stand taken by the new CGM where he is not ready to consider fresh Rule 8 cases against 211 new JTOs joined. Earlier 173 JTOs transferred when JTO posting through LICE/Offtg regularization taken place. This also done after lot of struggle by SNEA and by the intervention of DIR(HR). DIR(HR) assured to examine the matter.

After the formal agenda meeting, GS and AGS met GM(SR) and held further discussions on the matter. We explained the developments during last three years and how the JTOs are relieved after lot of struggle. The Rule 8 cases settled since 2016 is taken now and fresh cases are not considering when new direct rect JTOs are joining in the field. Against new JTOs fresh Rule 8 is to be considered and 191 Rule 8 cases are still pending.

GS writes to CMD, BSNL: Promotion orders issued prior to the implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy should be with effective date as 01.01.2017. Promotion with prospective date will create anomaly as promotion order for the seniors will be on a prospective date and that of the Junior will be w.e.f. 01.01.2017, through CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. This will lead to anomaly and fresh litigations in the future.
