Contempt case at Hon CAT Ernakulam regarding JTO to SDE promotion on 15.06.2018 --- The contempt petition filed by AIGETOA activists against CMD/BSNL and GM(Pers) on the final AIEL published on 14.06.2018 and the JTO to SDE promotion on 15.06.2018 came up for hearing on 18.07.2018 and completed the arguments.

The main arguments from petitioner side were:

1. The court order was to give promotions in the ratio 1:1 which BSNL did not followed:

Sr Lawyer appearing for BSNL strongly opposed this argument. BSNL pleaded that 1:1 ratio is suggested by Hon High Court for giving provisional promotion prior to the finalization of AIEL. BSNL finalised and notified the final AIEL as per Hon HC order on 14.06.2018 and regular promotion orders were issued on 15.06.2018 based on the circulated AIEL. The AIEL is prepared rect year wise, based on trg centre marks. For the remaining cases after 2000, BSNL is collecting the date of appointment details from the field units. Thereafter suitable action will be taken. So BSNL complied with the court order fully, BSNL pleaded. Hon Court very much convinced on this arguments.

2. There is excess promotion prior to 2000 rect also.

Sr Lawyer strongly opposed this argument and made very clear to the Hon court that there is no excess promotion from 1995 to 1999 rect years. The excess promotion is from 2001 to 2007 years and their seniority will be fixed later on as per Hon HC order. For the years 1995 to 1999, in some cases the JTOs were joined after 2000 as the LICE for 15% quota was held later. The result and trg also taken place later which resulted delayed date of joining. However they are all recruited for 1995 to 1999 rect years for which they are eligible. Remaining cases are either SC/ST candidates for whom relaxation in marks was given later on or in some cases, rect year was allotted as per various court orders.  The details of such cases are getting collected from the Circles.

After completion of arguments, the contempt petition is listed for orders and will be posted after one month.

The outcome of the court cases from 2010 to 2018 (from CAT Chennai and subsequently at Ernakulam) is that about 3000 JTOs eligible for promotion are retired since 2012 without getting promotion (the provisional AIEL was prepared in 2012 for the JTO to SDE promotion) and the promotion is delayed for years together (by 2 to 6 years) for all the eligible JTOs. If court cases was not there, almost all the JTOs upto 2008 could have been promoted well before through SCF or LDCE for the vacancies upto 2017-18, including the applicants in the case. The youngsters lost their precious service for future promotions. Still promotions from 1999 rect year onwards are pending as BSNL could not finalise the AIEL due to the mess created by the Court order.

Finally who benefitted by this court cases for the last 8 years?

E2, E3 pay scales replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.01.2007 for JTO/JAO equivalent cadres.

Com K Sebastin, GS/SNEA and Com V K Tomar, SG/NCOA met Shri Agrim Kaushal, Advisor/ DPE and Director/DPE on 18.07.2018 and held discussions regarding the DoT reference to DPE on E2 and E3 pay scales. Earlier Secretary/DPE directed us to meet the Advisor/DPE in this regard. We explained the background of the issue. BSNL recommended E2 and E3 pay scales replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A, w.e.f 01.01.2007. Ignoring BSNL recommendation, DoT approved E1 and E2 scales by lowering the pay scales from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2.

DoT is of the view that E1 and E2 are the pay scales applicable for BSNL direct rects from 2001 onwards and E1A and E2A are special dispensation for those got absorbed from DoT into BSNL for facilitating smooth absorption. The decline in revenue and the recurring losses was the other reason for lowering the pay scales.

BSNL did not implemented the Presidential Order and requested DoT to reconsider the decision and approve E2 and E3 pay scales as recommended by BSNL. It is also informed to DoT that E1 and E2 pay scales are not recommended by BSNL. As per the affordability clause, BSNL made Rs 4451 Crores as PBT during 2007-08 and hence eligible for full pay revision benefits of 2nd PRC.

We demanded that suitable direction should be given to DoT to review the decision and notify the pay scales based on:

1) BSNL recommendation,

2) considering the affordability clause for the year 2007-08 and 

3) not allow DoT to lower the pay scales and downgrade the cadres.

The representation from SNEA is received by DPE. However the reference from DoT is yet to be received by DPE, it is informed.

Our demand for revised pay scales E2 and E3 will be applicable for all the JTO/JAOs recruited from 2007 onwards, including those recruited in the provisional pay scale of E1 and the future recruits.

GS writes to CMD/BSNL regarding Pay parity of Rs 22820/ for the post-2007 recruited JTO/JAOs. Requested to take a sympathetic view on the matter to extend 22820/- as initial basic pay as this pay loss is going to be multiplied manifold after implementation of the 3rd PRC. It can be processed separately so that the financial losses being faced by the Executives recruited post 2007 can be compensated.

GS, President and AGS held discussions with GM(Pers) on 12.07.2018, in continuation of the discussion held on 11.07.2018 on the demand for complete parity in promotions in all the equivalent cadres in different wings. The parity in promotions is a policy matter approved by BSNL Board on 28.05.2018, so our demand is fully justified, GS told. Management cannot discriminate the cadres in the matter of promotions in the name of upgradation of posts. Because of management decision, some Assns are making malpropaganda that SNEA is against the promotion of some cadres. In fact SNEA demanded promotion for all the cadres, waiting for promotions for more years along with their juniors. In other words, we cannot accept the logic that JTOs of 1994 to 2010 SRD batch becomes junior to JAOs of 2012 batch who got promotion on 29.06.2018.  Similarly SDEs in various wings promoted in 1998 onwards cannot become juniors to others. It is for the management to find the solution to ensure that all are getting promotions simultaneously, SNEA told.

On CAO promotion, we requested to issue the promotion orders for the AOs upto 2005 batch as there is no hurdle in issuing promotion orders for them and vacancies are available. Except SDE(T) cadre (total about 6000, SCF about 4000) and few hundred CAO posts, all the vacancies in other cadres already filled up by 30.06.2018, GM informed. The upgradation was given to AO and DE cadre under compulsory situation to come out of the court cases. Further upgradation of posts in various cadres is not agreed by management so far. We requested to get the approval for all the proposals for upgradation.

The requirement of upgradation of posts for bringing parity in promotions among various wings in equivalent cadres also discussed in detail along with the status of promotions in different cadres.

GS writes to CMD, BSNL regarding DE to DGM(T) promotion: Request to fill up all the DGM(T) vacancies (including the vacant DR DGM posts and Addl GMs taken charge as GMs) on regular basis. Further request to increase the DGM(T) posts atleast by another 800 by matching savings or by upgradation so that all the AGMs completed 4 years (with 1 year relaxation) can be promoted. Number of DGM(T) posts are very less in Telecom Engineering side in comparison with other streams in BSNL, resulting huge stagnation.

The contempt petition and the prayer for stay on SDE to DE promotions come up for hearing today.

After arguments, Hon CAT declined to stay the promotions and permission granted to BSNL to file a detailed affidavit on the contempt petition. The case posted to August, 2018. BSNL deputed Jt GM(Pers) to Chandigarh to coordinate the matter and explain how BSNL given the promotions to the Hon CAT, if required.

GM(Pers) invited SNEA for further discussions on our demand for parity in promotions. GS, President and Jt Sec participated in the meeting. Jt GM(Pers) was also available.

On parity, GM(Pers) exactly want to know the details. We categorically told that JAO 2012 batch is already promoted by creating 1400 additional AO posts by upgradation by abolishing about 1800 JAO posts. Similarly all JTO(T/C/E/TF/Arch/) and equivalent cadres also should be given promotions. Similarly 1999 rect JAO promoted in 2009 as AO is proposed to be promoted as CAO by upgradation of posts. Since AO vacancies are not available JAO posts are upgrading to CAO posts. Similarly SDE(T/C/E/TF/Arch) and equivalent cadres also should be given promotions by upgradation of posts. There is no issue for promoting around 400 AOs of 2003 and 2005 batch as vacancy is there but management is not doing that. The earlier decision for upgradation of JAO posts to AO posts and SDE posts to DE posts done to overcome the court cases. Management is not taken any decision so far to create CAO posts as proposed. If that happens, other cases also will be considered. Now around 6000 SDE vacancies are their of which 4000 is for SCF promotion for which work is going on. But the method of fixation of inter-se-seniority issue has to be addressed first, GM(P) informed. For that, views of the cadre controlling authority, Estt section is sought. We demanded the approval of the proposal for upgradation to CAO posts as well as upgradation to AGM/EE equivalent posts in other streams at the earliest to bring parity. GM is of the opinion that strict parity may not be possible always. We categorically told that this is applicable when post based promotions are given in Govt deptsBSNL is a CPSU and in CPSUs post based promotion concept is not there. In CPSUs, the grades are linked with the pay scales, not with the posts. In Govt set up, grades are linked with the posts. While approving the CPSU cadre Hierarchy, the principle of Parity or Uniform promotional avenues for all the equivalent cadres in different wings already approved by BSNL Board. So management has no other option, it has to bring parity in promotions by any means, we demanded. GM Pers assured bring these facts to the notice of DIR(HR) for further action. We informed GM(Pers) that time is running out and the Executives are very much agitated over the discrimination and humiliation. While we are very much grateful to the management for promoting about 12000 Executives in record time, the present situation does not allow us to celebrate it.

Some malpropaganda is going on in the social media in the name of SEWA BSNL that SNEA is opposing SC/ST reservation. If the news is spread by the knowledge of SEWA leadership, SNEA condemn that. SNEA always stood for the welfare of the SC/ST comrades and for their rights, not just by circulating speculations in the social media, but by action. However we did not endorse the activities of SEWA leaders to the extent of threatening management for getting promotion to some of their top leaders in the name of roster. This we had seen in 2010 when GS of another Assn making all types of objections in SDE to DE promotions till his name gets included in the list by extending the list by few hundreds. If the method of applying roster in SDE to DE promotion is wrong, then why they did not made the same demand for JTO to SDE promotion in SCF and LDCE quota? Why such demand not raised in earlier promotions, till date? If the SDE roster is not correct according to them, why they kept silent so far? SNEA CHQ is fully involved from the day one for the smooth conduction of the DPC by facilitating it by arranging VC, missing assessment reports, other particulars etc. Last one week we are dedicated for the missing cases mainly from list 8 where the SC/ST comrades are involved. All our CSs are in regular touch with the CHQ on hourly basis for the missing cases reported. We are not seen any activists from other Assns for facilitating the DPC except some people reaching the DPC / Pers section in the evening to collect the information and order copy. Now the DPC is conducted and everything is clear for another 83 SDEs of list 8 belongs to SC/ST and 26 from list 5, 6 & 7 and awaiting the approval of DIR (HR).

The urgent MA filed by BSNL at Hon Court for lifting the stay on AO to CAO promotions come up for hearing yesterday, 09.07.2018 but posted to September, 2018. The AO to CAO promotion is also stayed due to catch up Rule. The MA also filed based on the recent Hon SC interim order and the DoPT orders.

The contempt petition filed at Hon Chandigargh CAT on SDE to DE promotion come up for hearing yesterday, 09.07.2018 and posted to 12.07.2018. BSNL directed to explain how recent promotion orders are issued. Earlier Hon Court directed to give SDE to DE promotions by applying catch up Rules. After the recent Hon SC interim order, catch up Rule is not having relevance, that is the stand taken by BSNL management.

Meeting with DIR HR on 09.07.2018...

GS attended the meeting called by DIR HR in the presence of GM(SR) and GM(Pers). GS/BSNL EU and Shri Prahlad Rai was also present. Initially SNEA decided not to attend the meeting if Shri Prahlad Rai is invited. However, later we decided to meet Dir HR and make our points clear to the management instead of boycotting the meeting.

GS categorically told Dir HR that management is taking vindictive actions against office bearers of SNEA by charge sheeting the GS and transferring the CHQ President from BSNLCO to UP West Circle. At the same time management is patronaging Shri Prahlad Rai who retired long back and allowing for official meetings against the provisions of REA Rules. We protested against this biased attitude of the BSNL management, ie. Charge sheet and transfer to the Office bearers of the Recognised Assn for going for agitation for the standard pay scales for the JTO/JAOs and official meetings to a retired officer violating the provisions of REA Rules. AIBSNLEA has written to the management on 06.07.2018 that GS/ SNEA is charge sheeted and hence he cannot continue as GS. He should not be allowed to attend meetings! After lot of arguments, finally Dir HR agreed to revoke the transfer order of our beloved CHQ President. 

On parity in promotions, SNEA told management that recent promotions created hell of anomalies and more disparity in promotions among different cadres. Now 2012 JAO promoted by upgradation of posts where as 1994 rect JTO still continue as JTO in Civil wing, no upgradtion for them. It will create large number of court cases. We are trying to come out of court cases through a Uniform Promotion policy but now more and more court cases are going to come and the whole cadre is going to suffer in the future also. So far the court cases are for promotion to SDE/AO and AGM/CAO promotions, now it will spread to DGM promotions also. Management discriminated the cadres and humiliated the seniors who are working for years together. There is no sincere attempt to address the huge stagnation in different cadres either through implementation of Uniform promotion policy or by upgradation of posts except limited attempt in Telecom Engg side which is not at all sufficient. Eventhough more than 12,000 Executives got promotion in record time, we are not able to celebrate it due to the disparity and heartburn among the seniors who did not get the promotions where as some of their subordinates got promotion. GS demanded full parity in promotions in all the equivalent cadres, management has to find way out. DIR HR and OSD gone to the extent of telling that always Accounts wing is ahead and we cannot compare. GS strongly opposed this stand and categorically told that nothing less than parity in promotions is acceptable to SNEA. BSNL Board approved parity in promotions in the meeting held on 28.5.2018 and now BSNL has to bring parity by any means, GS told.

Regarding Shri Prahlad Rai attending the official meetings, SNEA made its stand very clear that REA Rules does not permit that and management already taken a decision in this regard. SNEA is nothing to do with the internal matters of others but retired personal cannot attend the official meetings. Dir HR requested to reconsider the decision in the best interest of BSNL as all together have to work for 3rd PRC implementation, pension contributions etc.  GS once again reiterated the Assn stand and categorically told that management cannot entertain retired officers and by that the meeting concluded.

Comrades, we are closely watching the developments. From the discussions it is not clear whether management is willing to bring parity or not and whether management is serious on this. So gear up for any type of agitation to bring parity in promotions, we cannot wait for long. This will only end the discrimination and humiliation to the Comrades in different wings.

BSNL Rs 249 Entry-Level Broadband Plans Gets Validity Extension Again: 5 Things to Know.

09-07-2018

GS writes to Smt Seema Bahuguna, Secretary/DPE regarding approval of standard pay scales of E2 and E3 w.e.f 01.01.2007 replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A as proposed by BSNL:

DoT reference to Dept Of Public Enterprises (DPE) regarding BSNL proposal for revision of the intermediary pay scales of 9850-250-14600 (E1A) and 11875-300-17275 (E2A) to the next higher standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for the JTO, SDE and equivalent Executives in BSNL w.e.f 01.01.2007, based on 2nd PRC recommendations. Since BSNL satisfies the affordability clause stipulated in the DPE OM dated 26.11.2008 (The Profit Before TAX, PBT for BSNL during 2007-08 is Rs 4451 Crores), 2nd PRC implemented with full 30% fitment. Based on DPE guidelines, BSNL Board recommended next higher standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing E1A and E2A scales. Contrary to the recommendations of BSNL Board and DPE guidelines on the affordability clause, DoT issued Presidential order on 28.03.2017, lowering the revised pay scales from E1A to E1 (16400-40500) and E2A to E2 (20600-46500). BSNL did not implemented the presidential orders since the pay scales of the entry cadres are lowered and sought review of the decision of DoT. Reference from DoT seeking views /comments from DPE in this regard:

The DoT proposal may be examined at the earliest and proper direction may be issued to DoT to:

a) Approve the pay scales based on BSNL recommendation which is mandatory as per para 17 of DPE guidelines dated 26.11.2008 and as per DPE guidelines dated 02.04.2009 and 09.07.2014.

b) The affordability clause is to be examined with reference to PBT of the year 2007-08 only, as per DPE guidelines.

c) The pay scale of any cadre should not be lowered, unilaterally, which will lead to demoralization and demotivation.

GS writes to CMD/BSNL: Parity in promotions in all the streams in SDE/AO and AGM/CAO equivalent cadres. Uniform promotional avenues for the Executives in all the streams is already approved by the BSNL Board on 28.05.2018. Request to consider the proposal for upgradations for all the cadres together to give a message to all the Executives that NO CADRE IN BSNL IS INFERIOR TO OTHERS. Requested to direct Pers section to process the proposals from all the wings. The approval for upgradation of posts for all the wings for all the equivalent cadres, ie. Telecom/Finance/ Civil/ Elect/ TF/ Arch/ CSS etc may be given simultaneously so that no cadre or stream will get preferential treatment.

BSNL broken another history: A 1990 rect JTO(Arch) given promotion as SDE(Arch) after 28 years of service as JTO. Last week BSNL promoted a JTO(TF) of 1991 rect as SDE. While working for the welfare of all the sections, SNEA always stand for such deprived lot to bring them at par with others.

Promotion order

07-07-2018

GS, President and AGS met GM(Pers) and Jt GM(Pers) and discussed the following issues:

a) Upgradation of posts for promotion to AGM/CAO and SDE/AO equivalent cadres and promoting all the eligible Executives completed the qualifying service of 7 years for AGM/CAO equivalent cadres and 3 years for SDE/AO equivalent cadres:

We elaborated the demand placed before the management to bring parity in promotions which is envisaged in the CPSU Hierarchy approved by the Board. In the functional promotions also parity should be maintained as NO STREAM IS INFERIOR TO ANY OTHER STREAM. Vacancy based promotion is gone and in CPSUs, posts can be created by any means to bring parity. In CPSUs promotion is not at all linked with availability of posts. The demand for CPSU Hierarchy raised only for bringing parity in promotions.

We strongly demanded for the promotion of all the eligible Executives in Telecom, Civil, Electrical, CSS, PA/PS, TF, Arch etc wings, who can be promoted by filling all the existing vacancies or by upgradation of posts. SEA section already moved a proposal to promote all the eligible AOs promoted upto 2009 to be promoted as CAOs by upgradation of posts. All the eligible JAOs are promoted as AOs by upgradation. The proposal may be urgently moved so that approval will come together for all the cadres without any discrimination.

GM(Pers) assured that immediate action will be taken once direction is received from DIR(HR) or CMD. So far no direction is given to him. However the proposal for upgradation of posts from Civil, Electrical, Arch, TF etc already reached Pers section, he informed. As per our demand for parity in promotions, a proposal to promote all the SDEs of list 8 and SC/ST from 2009 SDE batch is also prepared. We requested to include the remaining few SDEs of 2009 batch in General category also, about 800 in number so that all the eligible SDEs can be promoted. GM(Pers) assured to consider this proposal also.

On JTO to SDE promotion, we demanded promotion to all the eligible JTOs completed 3 years of service. This is required anyhow for filling the SC/ST quota. Management agreed for this and assured necessary action in next week.

All the CSs and activists are requested to send the Gradation list particulars urgently.

Meanwhile further action on the Ernakulam judgment is under discussion with Estt section and will be appropriate action will be taken.

Interestingly in the meeting with GM(Pers), GM(Estt) and DIR(HR), AIGETOA/CHQ has taken an official stand that trg centre mark is the criteria to decide the seniority, even after the Ernakulam HC order, management informed us. But their members taken a different stand in the court and taken it as date of appointment. If that is their stand, then why they filed new case against BSNL and contempt petition against CMD, BSNL, management not able to explain. If they agreed for trg centre marks as the criteria, then the entire AIEL prepared and published by BSNL in 2015 is correct. It can be immediately restored and promotion can be given. Let them withdraw the contempt petition and the new OA filed in the Ernakulam HC, we can get the promotion orders within few days from the management. Otherwise, they are having two faces. Infront of DIR(HR), they are taking a position we are agreeable for trg centre marks and Ernakulam judgment doesnot prohibit that and in the court another stand opposing the AIEL published by BSNL based on trg centre marks within the same rect year JTOs.

06-07-2018

GS, President, AGS, Jt Sec and CS/CTD Com Dilip Saha met GM(Estt) and DGM(Estt) and discussed the following issues:

a) Follow up action at DPE for the approval of E2 and E3 pay scales: We explained the stand of DoT on the issue. In the reference to DoPT and DoE, DoT deliberately stated that E1 and E2 are the pay scales approved for the BSNL rects. E1A and E2A are only for those taken absorption from DoT. But DoT is not having any document to substantiate the claim. This facts are to be explained to DPE by BSNL, we requested GM(Estt). SNEA also pursue the matter on its own.

b) Filing appeal /review petition regarding the Hon Ernakulam HC judgment regarding fixation of JTO seniority: Detailed discussions held about the judgment. We requested to have a common strategy with Pers section and get the required clarifications from the HC so that finalization of AIEL and promotions can be done smoothly. Different groups are giving different interpretations and that will finally end up in litigations. Before finalization of AIEL, either clarity has to come from Hon HC or stay has to be obtained from Hon SC regarding the method of fixation of seniority among direct rects, whether it is trg centre marks or date of appointment. The AIEL prepared based on trg centre marks is set aside for the direct rects, so it is a serious problem. GM(Estt) observed that the case spoiled the career of thousands of JTOs and delayed the promotions. Necessary action will be taken in consultation with Pers section.

Some Positive developments on E2 and E3 scales:

GS spoken to the concerned officers in DoT regarding implementation of standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.01.2007. Dept of Expenditure (DoE) has returned the file sent by DoT seeking directions on this issue with the comments that the pay scales related to CPSUs are dealt by DPE and not by DoE and the matter may be referred to DPE for further guidance if required. However DoT did not initiated any action in this regard and kept the matter as closed. Then we had taken the matter with Hon MoSC by letter dated 18.06.2018, reminding his repeated assurances to review the Presidential Order issued by DoT on 28.03.2017, lowering the pay scales from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2 and approval of BSNL proposal for standard pay scales of E2 and E3, replacing E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.01.2007, the matter has been processed again by DoT. On the intervention of Hon MoSC, now the matter has been referred to DPE on last Friday.

We will pursue the matter with Secretary, DPE and other senior officers of DPE.

The demand for parity in promotion is not intended to hurt the sentiments of the Accounts personnel. It is the malpropaganda by vested interests. SNEA ventilated the sentiments of thousands and thousands of Executives to the BSNL management who are sidelined and deprived of promotions for years together and forced to retire without promotion. SNEA always stood for the welfare of all the section of Executives and the demand for parity in promotions is the right step in this regard. SNEA strongly supported the creation of AO posts by upgradation for JAO to AO promotion and even impleaded in the case at Ernakulam through affected persons. SNEA also welcomed the bold initiative of BSNL management to create 1200 CAO posts by upgradation to promote all the AOs including those promoted in 2009.

At the same time SNEA will not allow the management to crush the demand for similar promotional avenues and parity for the Executives in other streams.

SNEA equally or more concerned about the fate of hundreds of Executives who didn’t got even one promotion even after 23 years of service. They deserve more compassion and special consideration from all of us. We sincerely hope our Comrades from Accounts wing will understand the agony of those comrades and will support them and SNEA in this noble cause for giving promotions to those deprived class at par with others.

Gs writes to CMD, BSNL: Parity in promotions in all the streams in SDE/AO and AGM/CAO equivalent cadres:

SNEA demands:

1. All the JTOs in Telecom/ Civil/ Elect/ TF/ Arch/ CSS and the equivalent cadres and completed the minimum qualifying service of 3 years should be immediately promoted as SDE to bring parity among SDE/AO equivalent cadres by utilizing available vacancies or by upgradation of vacant JTO equivalent posts.

2. All the SDEs in Telecom/ Civil/ Elect/ TF/ Arch/ CSS and the equivalent cadres and completed the minimum qualifying service of 7 years should be immediately promoted as AGM to bring parity among AGM/CAO equivalent cadres. This can be easily done by upgradation of posts.

In case management does not accept our demand for parity in promotions in all the equivalent cadres in all the streams, we will be forced to go for agitation on very short notice, even without completing the formalities, from next Monday, 09.07.2018 onwards.

GS letter to CMD

Parity in promotions in all the streams in equivalent cadres:

BSNL Management moved a proposal to promote all the eligible AOs (Completed 7 years of service) as CAOs by post upgradation. In fact there is no vacant AO posts for upgradation. It is learnt that SEA section proposed the upgradation of JAO posts for this purposes. The proposal is sent for the approval of CMD with the approval of DIR(HR). We highly appreciate this initiative by BSNL management to promote all the eligible AOs as CAOs.

However, it is really shocking to know that the proposal is moved only for the promotion for AO to CAO cadre leaving even the core Telecom segment which runs the company and doing all the business and generating revenue for the company.

Earlier SEA section created 1200 AO posts by upgrading JAO posts and promoted all the JAOs completed the qualifying service of 3 years. SNEA whole heartedly welcome this bold initiative of BSNL Management and SEA section to promote all the eligible Executives.

SNEA strongly demanded that same parity should be maintained in all the streams for promotion to SDE equivalent and AGM equivalent cadres. This can be easily achieved by upgradation of JTO/SDE posts in various streams as done by SEA section. GS already communicated the demand for parity in promotions for all the streams in equivalent cadres to CMD and DIR(HR).

SNEA demanded that all the SDEs in Telecom/ Civil/ Elect/ TF/ Arch/ CSS and equivalent cadres and completed the qualifying service of 7 years should be immediately promoted as AGM to bring parity among AGM/CAO equivalent cadres. This can be easily done by upgration of posts. Similarly all the JTOs in Telecom/ Civil/ Elect/ TF/ Arch/ CSS and the equivalent cadres and completed the qualifying service of 3 years should be immediately promoted as SDE to bring parity among AO/SDE equivalent cadres by utilizing available vacancies or by upgradtion of vacant JTO posts.

BSNL Board in its meeting held on 28.05.2018 given approval for parity in promotions for all the streams in equivalent cadres. It has to be implemented in letter and spirit.

GS, President, AGS and Jt Sec met GM(Pers) and Jt GM(Pers) and requested to move the proposal for creation of AGM posts by upgradation to promote all the eligible SDEs completed 7 years of service (ie including 2009 promoted SDEs) and call the assessment sheet and VC for all the JTOs completed 3 years of service. By the promotion of all SDEs in list 8 & 9, the resentment created by the promotion of excess SC/ST candidates in list 8 by treating all the SC/ST candidates in list 6 & 7 as meritorious candidates (about 500) by threatening the management by some sections also can overcome, we suggested. In fact all the SC/ST candidates in list 6 & 7 got promotion as SDE in 2000 and 2001 DPC on reservation only, not as per merit and all are shown against SC/ST points in the roster.

GM(Pers) informed that proposal for upgradation of posts will be moved on getting instruction from DIR(HR)/CMD. Similarly all the SDEs and JTOs in other streams also to be promoted to bring parity among all the cadres. We will be meeting them also in this regard. We assured them that we will ensure all the assessment sheets and VCs in record time as arranged for the just concluded DPC and facilitate the DPC.

We will not hesitate to go for agitation on short notice in case management does not accept our demand for parity in promotions.
