CPSU Cadre Hierarchy Proposal in BSNL
GS writes to Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL intimating that PGM (Pers.) had discussions on some of the issues but he had not made discussions on all the issues despite our para wise reply on the proposed CPSU Cadre Hierarchy Proposal. It seems that our opinion / views / suggestions have not been given due importance by the PGM (Pers.). Even records of the discussion have not been taken and supplied to us. Therefore, whatever made known to the Management Committee are not known to us.
A convention of all Unions & Associations will be held on 27.11.2017 at 11 AM at BSNL multipurpose Hall, Panbazar.

GM (SR), Jt. GM (Pers) and DGM (Pers-II) were also present in the meeting. AIBSNLEA submitted its detailed Para wise response to the draft policy approved by BSNL Management committee.
PGM (Pers) had apprised that purpose of the MC‘s direction to discuss with associations to make policy more employee and organization centric. He requested that AIBSNLEA should support the policy to break the stalemate in the promotions of executives in BSNL.
AIBSNLEA made it clear that we are never against the CPSU hierarchy rather we have been demanding it to implement in the true sense and as per Khan Committee recommendations. We further clarified that our suggestions are to safe guard the interest of the entire executives and it will give value additions to it. In view of this Pers. Cell should carefully go through our views / suggestions with open mind without any prejudice. Then point by point discussion was held.
While discussion, we strongly opposed the MT recruitment, ignorance of the weightage to seniority, reduction of sanctioned strength, increase in eligibility condition from of 7 to 12 years for the promotion of SDE/AO to DE /AGM/CAO, Time bound promotion in SG-JAG grade should be in E7 instead of E6 etc.
PGM (Pers) appreciated our concern in this regard and impress upon to consider MT Recruitment to full-fill the management requirement immediately but we categorically told that AIBSNLEA is firm on its stand and will not accept MT Recruitment at STS level which will block the career progression of executives.
PGM (Pers.) mentioned that he will study the submissions made by AIBSNLEA point by point and thereafter he will discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA again on 22nd and 23rd Nov, 2017.

1. Implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL and settlement of E-2 & E-3 standard pay scales to the JTO & SDE equivalent executives in BSNL: We requested to get settled both the cases from DOT at the earliest to avoid unrest among the employees.

On the issue of 3rd PRC report the BSNL Board has approved for its implementation with 15% fitment benefit and the same proposal will shortly be sent to DOT she immediately directed GM (Estt.) for sending the BSNL Board approval on 3rd PRC implementation for approval to DOT immediately. Dir (HR) mentioned that approval on 3rd PRC from DOT fully depends on Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) & Secretary (T) support. Since, the middle level administration in DOT is not favorable.
On the issue of payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay of BSNL employees to DOT. Dir (HR) mentioned that matter is still pending in the establishment cell of DOT to reply DOE queries wherein internal finance of DOT has also asked many quires in this regard. It seems that DOT Administration is not favorable to recommend the case to DOE.
2. Holding of CPCs to fill-up the vacant Group-B and Group-A level vacant posts: We expressed our serious concern against the non-filling of the Group-B and Group-A level about 17000 vacant posts on the pretext of pending court cases. PGM (Pers) informed that Three SLPs have been filed in the Hon'ble Supreme Court against the Judgement of Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh on SC/ST roster implementation in BSNL the case was heard in the Registrar Court on 27th Oct.2017 wherein the notices have been issued to all concerned and now the next hearing is expected in the middle of Nov. month. He explained that we have requested to the Hon'ble Supreme Court to give us the clear direction that whether the Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh Judgement has to be implemented of the DOP&T guidelines should be implemented on SC/ST roster in BSNL to fill-up about 17000 Group-B and Group-A level vacant posts in the interest of BSNL and its executives. He opined that on this hearing Hon'ble Supreme Court may give clear cut direction in this regard and on that basis the CPCs will be conducted immediately.

We expressed our concern that on 6th Nov-2017 the case was heard in the Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi filed by AIBSNLEA in the month of July-2017 against DOT order dated 05.07.2017 wherein for the last three hearings DOT Counselor shout time to file the reply and finally DOT filed the reply in Oct-2017 thereafter immediately AIBSNLEA Advocate also filed the rejoinder which was heard on 6th Nov-2017 in which Ist time BSNLs Advocate appeared and demanded the MA copy and requested for adjournment of the Court for next 3 weeks wherein the now case is posted for hearing on 28th Nov-2017. Dir (HR) express her anguish against towards BSNLs Advocate late appearance and further delaying the case. She directed CGM (Legal) and PGM (Pers) to deal the case on priority for an early decision so that the pension cases can be settled accordingly.
4. Implementation of CPSU cadre hierarchy in BSNL: We expressed our resentment towards the attitude of PGM (Pers) for not discussing the draft proposal with AIBSNLEA 2nd majority Executive Association on CPSU cadre hierarchy before placing to the management committee of BSNL Board wherein many discrepancies are seen which will harm the assured carrier progression of BSNL Executives. The Khan Committee recommendation which were finalized after the signature of three Executive Associations i.e. AIBSNLEA, SNEA and AIGETOA has been diluted/ deviated which is not acceptable. We also mentioned that AIBSNLEA have been demanding implementation of CPSU hierarchy in the line of Khan Committee report. Dir (HR) mentioned that Management Committee of BSNL Board has directed to discuss the draft proposal with all stake holders before its submission to the BSNL Board for approval and now you have opportunity to put forth your views in this regard. She directed PGM(Pers) to discuss with AIBSNLEA on point to point basis and to take out view for further submission to the management committee of BSNL Board. She also directed GM(SR) to be present in the meeting on 15th Nov.2017 at 15.00 Hrs in the Chamber of PGM(Pers) and thereafter she will personally discuss the matter with AIBSNLEA before its submission to Management Committee of BSNL Board.

It is understood that committee has recommended 15% fitment benefit with some conditions wherein the main emphasis may be on 3rd PRC implementation in BSNL. With this BSNL will incurred additional Rs.272 Crores financial burden for executives and about Rs.725 Crores for non-executives wage revision wherein Basic +DA will be merged in new pay scale band which will increase the pension, commutation value and remove the stagnation in the existing scales. 15% fitment benefit the financial impact will be about Rs. 2500 Crores.

AFTER CONSISTENT EFFORTS OF AIBSNLEA CHQ, THE DATE OF ANTE-DATING EFFECT IN THE GRADE OF AGM/DE ADHOC PROMOTION GOT ISSUED BY CO, ND ON 09.08.2017, RELATED TO THE CASE OF SRI M K BHATTACHARJEE, AGM, GMTD TEZPUR HAS BEEN REVISED W.E.F. 30.06.2010 AS PER HON’BLE CAT, GUWAHATI OA No.248/2012 DTD.17.12.2012 AND UPHELD BY HON’BLE HIGH COURT, GUWAHATI DTD.17.03.2016.
KINDLY SEE CO, ND ORDER No.412-16/2014-Pers.I DTD.09.08.2017.
Status of 3 rd PRC notification by DPE:
DPE has send the minutes of the Cabinet Meeting held on 19.07.2017 to the Cabinet Secretariat for confirmation in the last week. The confirmation of minutes is expected by this week and thereafter the OM on notification of 3 rd PRC implementation may be issued by DPE in the next week. After the notification of the OM the respective PSUs will take decision regarding its implementation for their executives. And, thereafter the respective PSUs will sent to their respective administrative ministries for the approval and issuance of Presidential Directives. In this manner after the notification of DPE OM on 3 rd PRC implementation, BSNL Board will take the decision for its implementation in BSNL for its executives and thereafter it will be sent to DoT for approval and issuance of Presidential Directives. We have to see that notification of DPE OM is allowing BSNL to implement 3 rd PRC report or not. Whether the Cabinet has empowered respective PSU Boards or administrative ministries to give dispension in the affordability clause as recommended earlier in the interim report of 3 rd PRC. In case, the respective PSU Boards/ administrative ministry are empowered by Cabinet for dispension in the affordability condition of the PSU then it is the BSNL Board and administrative ministry who can take decision immediately for 3 rd PRC implementation in BSNL for its executives otherwise BSNL Board has to take up the matter with the administrative ministry to take the Govt. approval on dispension in the affordability clause for BSNL.
On 11/07/2017 GS writes to
Director(HR), BSNL Board regarding Ad-hoc promotion of Sri Mihir Kanti Bhattacharjee, DE Staff No.198211249 to AGM/DE cadre with effect from the date on which his next junior was promoted with all consequential service benefits.
Letter Attached in Gallery
AIBSNLEA is sincerely trying for the last so many years for the effective and practical implementation of Standard pay scales (E2- for JTO/JAO and Equivalent cadres and E3 – for SDE/AO and Equivalent cadres). While the discussion came up initially, from several sources it was evident that without cascading effect (E3 by E4, E4 by E5, E5 by E6 and E6 by E7) it cannot be implemented in BSNL. If at all standard pay scale is implemented without cascading effect, its damn sure that so many litigations will be filed in the courts due to the deadly issues of junior/ senior, heavy pay loss to the executives in the E2A scale, on the wedge of getting E3 compared to the executives at the beginning of E2A Scale and also holding an executive for 10 years in E3 scale is unlike any other PSUs. Thus practically the court cases will stop the implementation of Standard pay scales without cascading effect like so many promotions of JTO/SDE are stopped through court intervention. In addition to these many of senior executives are stagnating for the last couple of years without any annual increment.
By foreseeing these realties, AIBSNLEA took a stand since beginning for the implementation of standard pay scales with cascading effect because we want to implement this for the benefits of all the BSNL executives. More over, this implementation of standard pay scales with cascading effect is doubly benefitting for the young talents of BSNL working in the non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A. Those who want to see that standard pay scales are not implemented in BSNL at any cost, can only opt for implementation of standard pay scales without cascading effect. During the agitation of United Forum of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA ,Management Committee of BSNL Board deliberated over the issue at length and decided to recommend up-gradation of pay scales of E3, E4, E5 & E6 for Sr. SDE, AGM, DGM and SG-DGM and equivalent posts to E4, E5, E6 & E7 respectively w.e.f. 01.01.2007. Accordingly the proposal was sent to DoT vide letter number 1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 06.06.2016 for approval. But now the Majority Association is trying to get withdrawn the proposal and want to restrict the upgradation up to E2 and E3 Scales only. Hence they are harming the interest of all the BSNL Executives.
In spite of this, while DOT rejected the proposal of implementation of standard pay scales with cascading effect, AIBSNLEA also took a stand with the demand for implementation of standard pay scales without cascading effect with an expectation and symptoms that DOT will approve. DOT did not consider even implementation of E2 and E3 Pay Scales without cascading effect and approved E-1A and E-2A intermediatory Pay Scales.
But, what happened next is the outright rejection of the proposal. Who is responsible for this catastrophe? After referendum, one association, self-proclaimed as saviours of BSNL and BSNL executives, is recognised as Majority association gave trade union notice for the implementation standard pay scales for E2 & E3 alone to DOT and at a later stage withdrawn their demand for the reason known to them. When a recognised association demanding something and at a later stage unconditionally withdrawing the demands does clearly indicating that they are not serious on the demand of getting standard pay scales to BSNL Executives. This only triggered DOT to pronounce Presidential Orders for unwanted E1/E2 scales. How that association can wash off their hands? Do they think they can eye wash others from their calculated move by yelling and shedding crocodile tears in public after things are happened as per their wish ?
Now what a responsible association has to do? AIBSNLEA is doing for the benefits of all the executives without giving any scope for litigations. .... ....... .....
