Meeting with Sri V. Umashankar, Jt Sec(T), DoT: GS Com K Sebastin met Sri V. Umashankar, JS(T) on 22.10.2014 and held discussions on the following subject:
a) Implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc for JTO/JAO, SDE/AO etc: Since DPE rejected the proposal of E1A and E2A, Assn requested to implement the standard pay scales of E2 and E3. Those young JTO/JAOs joined after 01.01.2007 facing huge difference in pay comparing to their seniors and this demoralizes them at the beginning of their career. Further at the time of their recruitment, they were offered E1A pay scale which is likely to be revived upwards, but once they joined in BSNL, they were demoted to E1 scale. For the revival of BSNL, motivation of this young comrades are very much required. JS(T) concurred with our views and opined that they should not be de-motivated at all and everything possible to motivate the young recruits should be considered.
b) Status of merger of BSNL and MTNL: JS(T) informed that the issue is under the active consideration of the Govt and discussion is going on at different levels.
