All the CSs are requested to send the modifications required in Postings on Promotion (JTO to SDE) of both LDCE and SCF executives immediately through mail. Also the CSs are requested to send the discrepancies if any ( like promotion orders issued to retired / died etc) missing names in the list immediately.

21-06-2018


As decided in the CS and CHQ meeting, all CSs and CHQ office bearers should reach New Delhi by 27th or 28th morning itself and we have to be at New Delhi till BSNL notifies the proposal. The Kolkata/ Hyderabad/ Bhubaneswar CWC directions to implement CPSU Cadre Hierarchy at the earliest date put immense responsibility on our shoulders. 

21-06-2018


Management is trying to delay the notification of CPSU Hierarchy promotion and delay all the promotions to more than 25,000 Executives. The BSNL Board approved the proposal with effect from 28.05.2018.

GS, President, AGS and Jt Sec met CMD and held discussion regarding notification of CPSU Hierarchy proposal. CMD opined that it can be notified after the completion of ongoing promotions. We are shocked to hear this from our beloved CMD. According to our information some DPCs may take few months and if all the DPCs are to be held it will take years together. By the prospective date of approval by the Board, all the Executives already lost 1 ½ years.  Any delay in notification will delay the subsequent promotions also. Hardly 20% to 30% of the Executives eligible for promotion as per the new promotion policy only will be covered by the present DPC. Delaying the promotion for another 6 months, for the vast majority of the Executives, more than 70%, is not justified. Telecom Engg side is worstly affected and it will continue to suffer, we told. Even on SDE to DE promotion we suggested to give the promotion without DPC for all the SDEs in list 5,6,7 & 8 who are in E4 or E5 scale by 28th (just like CPSU promotion) as the seniority list is under dispute and giving promotion through either seniority route for limited vacancies may end up in another litigation. That litigation will continue even after implementation of CPSU Hierarchy and the very purpose of CPSU Hierarchy implementation will be defeated. CMD was non committal on our proposal but asked us to discuss with DIR(HR). Finally CMD agreed to some extent to our demand and told that he will direct to complete all DPCs before 30th and notify CPSU Hierarchy before 1st July. 

Earlier in the meeting with GM(Pers) on CPSU Hierarchy notification and progress in the SDE to DE DPC, he indicated that he requires minimum 2 months to complete the DPC work and tentative schedule is middle of August. It is communicated to Dir(HR) and CMD in the evening.  From this we can understand the level of preparation for the DPC at BSNLCO. However we are trying our level best to get some tangible results.

We have to be very very vigilant for the next few days and be ready to go to any extent. All the negative elements will play all dirty politics to derail the notification of CPSU Hierarchy as almost all their members got promotion earlier and we have to be united like a rock.

This will be the lifeline for the career growth of Executives. This will be the unique opportunity to have uniform promotion policy and parity in promotions across all streams.

JTO to SDE promotion: The same section who are working against promotions and want to fight only court cases, filed an MA in the Hon CAT yesterday, challenging the promotion order dated 15.06.2018 and praying for staying/quashing the promotion orders.  Another contempt petition also filed against BSNL management. Interestingly the applicants are JTOs joined in 2009 and 2010 whose name is not available in the eligibility list at all published in 2015. This move may further delay all the promotions. Assn also impleaded in the case through the affected persons, promoted recently.

CHQ Office bearers and CS meeting at New Delhi on 18.06.2018:  It was a moment of celebration for all as 1) the SNEA demand for CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation is approved by the BSNL Board on 28.05.2018, paving the way for smooth career progression in the future and 2) more than 5,000 JTOs promoted as SDEs within one month period through SCF and LDCE for the vacancy years 2009-10 and 2010-11.

The meeting decided to demand the implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy on or before 01.07.2018 as per the CWC decisions. Already CPSU cadre Hierarchy delayed by one and half years as the date of implementation changed from 01.01.2017 to a prospective date, any delay in implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy will delay all the future promotions for all.

Meanwhile in the intervening period, all out efforts will be made to effect promotions in all the streams, ie. SDE to DE, AO to CAO, SDE(C/E) to EE(C/E), SDE(TF) to AGM(TF), JTO(T/C/E/TF)/JAO to SDE(T/C/E/TF)/AO.

Assn will be giving more focus for settlement of E2 and E3 scales, now pending in DoT and if required will launch organizational actions.

30% Superannuation benefit to BSNL direct rects: By the formation of pension fund with 5% contribution, now the total contribution reached 25% out of 30%. Further increase in the contribution will be pursued as it is directly linked with the social security.

Uniform 1st TB Promotion: This is the issue for all the JTO/JAOs recruited from 1993 to 1999 who got the first TBP after 5 or 6 years. Khan Committee recommended for uniform 5 years. However Hyderabad CWC decided to demand TBP after 4 years instead of 5 years. Management was waiting for the finalization of the CPSU Hierarchy. EPP 2007 has to be amended retrospectively, w.e.f 01.10.2004 for implementing Uniform TBP with the approval of BSNL Board and DoT.

Group Term Insurance (GTI): Competitive quote is expected from LIC, this week. Assn is in touch with LIC in this regard. GTI will be implemented making 3 or 4 age slabs to get the benefit of customarised premium to the Executives of different age groups.

Filing of Court case for EPF full pension option: The list of Executives recruited directly by BSNL, covered under EPF and opted for the full pension option is to be made available to CHQ by respective CSs within one month. Jt Sec(S) Com Pandurang Nayak and AGS Com Chinamya Sahoo will coordinate with all CSs in this regard.

The pay parity of 22820 will be pursued to settle the issue by giving additional increments as the demand for settlement as a pay anomaly issue is not agreed by the management.

GS, President and AGS met DIR(HR) on 18.06.2018 and extended sincere gratitude for issuing JTO to SDE promotions for the vacancies of 2009-10 and 2010-11 bringing the SCF and LDCE at par. This was possible only due to the firm stand taken by DIR(HR) and the Pers section by correctly interpreting the Hon EKM HC order. Some sections even made false propaganda by telling the management and others that there is stay on promotions from CAT, EKM and tried to stop the promotions. Earlier they confused management and other Executives by stating that Hon HC given a 1:1 judgment. In fact it is a temporary measure, applicable only in case BSNL is issuing provisional promotions before finalization of AIEL.

Further discussions held on completing the DPCs and notification of the CPSU Hierarchy promotions which gives promotions to all the eligible Executives. We requested DIR(HR) to complete all the promotions in all the streams of Telecom, Finance, Civil, Electrical, TF, Arch etc by this month end as much possible and notify the CPSU Hierarchy by 28.06.2018 so that remaining Executives, including those retiring this month gets their eligible promotions. Executives already lost 1 and 1/2 years service, even for future promotions as BSNL Board approved the CPSU proposal prospectively. Further delay in its implementation will damage the Executives future career.

DIR(HR) assured to do the best possible for issuing the promotion orders immediately without delaying CPSU Hierarchy and she will review the progress with all the concerned GMs today itself.

All CSs and Office bearers are requested to send the APAR, VC etc latest by 22.06.18 for completing the formalities before 28.06.2018.
