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.

As decided in the agenda meeting, the Committee on Group Term Insurance (GTI) held negotiations with LIC and SBI Life on Group Term Insurance (GTI) for all the BSNL Executives. 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.

17-05-2018

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.

Meeting with Shri Anupam Shrivatava, CMD, BSNL on 14.05.2018:

GS, President and AGS met CMD, BSNL and held discussions on various issues. On the follow up of HOCC meeting, Circle and SSA level meeting will be held shortly, CMD informed. The hiring of dark fibre from Assam to Siliguri also brought to his notice. The agreement with OIL will be over in June 2018 and it has to be renewed. It is learned that some private agencies, Mukund, is approaching BSNL offering lesser rates. But their fibre is laid along the NH just like BSNL cables and it also will be damaged just like BSNL OF cable. The existing hired cable is tapped at various places and if new cable is hired from other agencies, the same work has to be repeated once gain. For the reliability of the media, we have to continue with OIL and PGCIL cables, Assn told.

On Board approval for CPSU Hierarchy, CMD told that BSNL will stick on to the original proposal with date of effect as 01.01.2017. BSNL Board meeting is scheduled for 28.05.2018. Since JS has made some suggestions, the suggestions will be discussed in the Board meeting instead of circulation of file and various points will be explained in the Board meeting so that proposal will get cleared, CMD informed.

Meanwhile the promotions if any given during the intervening period should be w.e.f 01.01.2017, in line with CPSU proposal in order to avoid future anomalies and litigations, Assn told CMD. Seniors given promotion prospectively and juniors getting promotion w.e.f 01.01.2017 through CPSU Hierarchy will create anomalies. The promotions for limited numbers should not create hurdles for the smooth implementation of CPSU Hierarchy as thousands of Executives are waiting for promotion through CPSU Hierarchy, Assn told.

As per the instruction of DIR(HR), GS, President and AGS met GM(Pers) and Jt GM(Pers) and held discussions on the various suggestions/objections of JS.

BSNL will have just two functional Directors (out of five) from July, 2018 onwards.

Meeting with Smt Sujata T Ray, DIR(HR) on 04.05.2018: GS and President met DIR(HR) and held discussions on the following issues.

a) Implementation of Uniform Time Bound promotion (CPSU Cadre Hierarchy): Assn expressed its strong resentment in the delay on approval of the proposal. Hundreds of Executives due for promotion are retiring every month and the youngsters are losing their service for the future promotions. DIR(HR) informed that the response from the Jt Sec and BSNL Board member is expected by Tuesday. JS is on official tour and will be back on Monday. Based on the response further actions will be initiated.

We are waiting for the response from the JS and the further initiatives from the BSNL management. If there is any more delay tactics from DoT or BSNL, we will not hesitate to go for trade union actions in the near future. It is suspected that the strong stand taken by the Assns and Unions against Tower subsidiary formation is delaying the clearance from the JS, which cannot be accepted.

b) Uniform policy for considering request transfers, maintaining waiting list: Assn mentioned that the request transfers are not considered on uniform policy, some are considered on OWN cost and some on company cost which is arbitrary. As per policy all transfer after 3 years will be in the company cost evenif it is a request transfer. Due to financial condition it is not followed especially in Telecom Engg side whereas some cases are considered on company cost. Further waiting list is not maintained. DIR(HR) assured to maintain transparency and uniform procedure for considering request transfers. Further discussions will be held in the formal meetings.  

c) Early implementation of Hon SC judgments on Rule 206 seniority and 147 seniority: We requested to expedite both as finalization of seniority will pave the way for the promotion of the eligible candidates to DE/DGM grades. DIR(HR) informed that the committee formed for 147 seniority will examine the implementation part next week and a decision will be taken shortly on 147 seniority. Subsequently 206 seniority revision will be implemented.

d) Arbitrary Transfers in Civil wing of AP Circle and SDE(Electrical) transfers by PGM(EW): We explained the arbitrary transfer made by CE(Civil), AP Zone and the discussion with PGM(BW) in this regard. Similarly in Electrical wing also transfers are issued without any justification. DIR(HR) is very unhappy about the arbitrary transfers and assured to intervene.

The formal agenda meeting with DIR(HR) to discuss various HR issues is fixed for 16.05.2018.

We explained the queries from JS/DoT and the reply given by BSNL. She is very much convinced on the BSNL proposal and assured that she will clear the proposal with date of effect as 01.01.2017 as and when it reaches her. In the last Board meeting she had some reservations regarding the dated of implementation as 01.01.2017, from a retrospective effect.

Developments on replacement of the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A with standard pay scales of E2 and E3 w.e.f 01.01.2007 for all the post 2007 recruits:

Dept of Expenditure (DoE), Ministry of Finance replied to DoT on the queries in the expected lines. In its reply, DoE replied that pay Revision in CPSUs are under the domain of DPE and DoE is not dealing with the pay revision of CPSU Executives. Accordingly DoT may take appropriate action, DoE advised DoT.  

Earlier DoP&T also taken the same stand and replied to DoT accordingly.

In this regard we met Hon Minster of State for Finance Shri Pon Radhakrishnan on 07.03.2018 and requested his intervention. Subsequently we pursued the matter with the concerned officers in DoE several times.

Now DoT has to take a decision in this regard based on DoE and DoP&T reply.
