Deployment of ITS officers in BSNL on BSNL posts: SNEA(I),
BSNLEU and AIBSNLEA jointly filed petition in the PCAT, New Delhi
praying “declare that the Impugned Order dated 11.03.2013, issued by DoT tantamount
to non-compliance of the Orders dated 17.04.2012, 15.02.2013 and
04.03.2013 passed by the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi in WP No.
01-04-2013 It is
very pathetic and unprecedented to find Unethical Vendors being
allowed to provide the Call Center Services in both CFA & CMTS wing
resulting in total failure and chaos en route.In Odisha Circle, the
CFA Call Center was being operated by VMC of Hyderabad & the Wireless
Services Call Center was operated by M/s Sparsh BPO Services. VMC
stopped the service on 7th Feb 2013 and M/s Sparsh terminated the
services abruptly on 14th Mar 2013, Reason was the invoice placed by
M/s Sparsh was in violation of the EOI & was objected with
recalculation resulting in decrease of the amount claimed in the
invoice. Locally the Call Center people were agreeing to our logic and
calculation, but at their corporate level, they are demanding the
EXACT CLAIMED AMOUNT. In Odisha for WS CC, we have converted all the
PRIs to E1 to make it CDR compatible. The Company is not honoring the
intervention of the hon'ble Court of Bhubaneswar, who has refrained
the company from suspending CC Services. We have met our CGM today
(along with Com P K Sahoo, CP, Com M K Nayak, Treasurer) and had
elaborate discussion. <<cgmsletter>>

with DIR(HR): President,
GS and Com M Gopinathan, CS/TN Circle met Sri A N Rai, DIR(HR) on
22.02.’13 and discussed:
reply to DOT on 78.2% IDA merger: DIR(HR)
informed that he cleared the reply on 20.02.’13 itself and got the
approval of CMD in the same day evening before he leaving the office for
foreign tour. We thanked him for the prompt action. Assn met CMD on
20.02.’13 and requested for expeditious actions to send the reply to
up of all the 2700 vacant STS posts instead of 760 posts: Assn
informed DIR(HR) about the discussions with CMD, BSNL on 22.02.’13 on
this issue. We explained that approval is given only for the 760 posts
lying vacant in the 50% regular promotion quota. All the 2632 posts in
the 50% STS quota for MTs are lying vacant today and BSNL Mgt proposed
to recruit only 500 MTs, remaining 2132 STS posts has to be filled on
Adhoc basis as per BSNLMS RR. Now SDEs promoted in 1994 and 1998
completed 18 and 14 years and waiting for their promotion. Major reasons
for court cases are the undue delay in getting promotions and if Mgt is
giving promotion to all the vacant posts, we will be able to promote
almost all the senior officers promoted upto 1998. DIR(HR) responded
very positively and informed us that Mgt will try to promote maximum
to SDE promotion under seniority and LDCE quota: We
informed DIR(HR) that the JTO to SDE DPC is work is moving very slow
and requested his intervention. Even after 8 months the assessment
report not received from most of the Circles. JTOs of 1995 batch and
completed 16 years of service are waiting for their first promotion.
DIR(HR) informed that suitable action will be taken and specific date
will be fixed for the Circles. On ongoing case at PCAT on LDCE, Assn
requested DIR(HR), proper action to see that BSNL lawyer is taking
keen interest and argument is taking place in the next date in March.
DIR(HR) informed that the delay was caused as the applicants in the
transferred cases has to be given minimum time to file the reply and
without reply, argument on the merit of the case cannot take place.
Some salient features contained in the Cabinet decision
on absorption of ITS Group “A” in BSNL/MTNL:
Comrades, as reported by us in the last CWC meeting at Chennai on 07th and
2013, the Cabinet memo contains the following proposals:
“A” Absorption process in BSNL/MTNL stands concluded which in effect
means that the seniority of the absorbed ITS is delinked from those
who would, according to the note, continue on deputation for a fixed
time frame. (This undoubtedly paves the way for promotion of absorbed
ITS against BSNL posts as CGMs/GMs/DGMs etc).
the BSNL posts have to be filled up by absorbed officers to the extent
absorbed officers are available on priority basis.(ITS
who are to continue on deputation in BSNL/MTNL in accordance to terms
and conditions of the Cabinet decision will not be eligible for
consideration for promotions against BSNL posts hereinafter. That
in essence means that absorbed and eligible JAG will get promotion to
SAG and eligible SAG will get promotion as HAG, overriding seniority
of those ITS who would be on deputation but are otherwise eligible for
promotion in all respects).
fully empowers BSNL/MTNL to make recruitment to top Management posts
which remain unfilled after promotion of eligible absorbed officers.
This recruitment would be allowed under provisions of Rule 37which
envisages that unabsorbed ITS would be also eligible to be recruited
in BSNL/MTNL afresh after they get their pension and retirement
benefits from Govt. for the service rendered by them in DOT. Their
countdown for seniority in the respective cadres they are recruited in
BSNL shall start ab-initio. They will be eligible for further
promotions in BSNL.
is allowed to retain the unabsorbed ITS officers on deputation
(BSNL-941 and MTNL-83) for a maximum period of 10 years in a
diminishing manner ie 10% will be repatriated/retired every year (Majority
of repatriation on a year to year basis is from the DGM cadre and
retirement from CGM/GM cadre). In MTNL, repatriation will be completed
in 3 years time. However,
these 941 & 83 unabsorbed ITS on deputation in BSNL/MTNL and about 400
repatriated officers would be eligible for promotion against only 65
posts at HAG/SAG level in DOT which is already filled up (Total DOT
posts-463: Advisor / HAG-04, CGM / HAG-05, GM/SAG-56, DGM/JAG-100,
will be conducting cadre review.
e) The deemed
deputation period from 2005 also stands regularised.
Comrades, first three provisions cited above, except fourth one, and
contained in the Cabinet decision address comprehensively our concerns
in so far as our persistent and fundamental demand that BSNL should be
led by a management belonging to the Company and posts of BSNL should be
earmarked exclusively for absorbed people. These provisions have been
included in the Cabinet decision because of strenuous and sustained
efforts of the Association and the Joint Forum. Tireless efforts of the
Association in the form of consistent and endless interactions with the
bureaucracy in DOT and extensive and invaluable inputs that it gave to
the concerned officers in DOT dealing with absorption process
facilitated and enabled bureaucracy in DOT to include critical and
significant provisions in the Cabinet note. The three provisions cited
above and contained in the Cabinet decision is a landmark breakthrough
as these three core provisions meet our critical concerns
comprehensively and the concerns of the Company as well.
We have no words to congratulate our base level
membership throughout the Country for their unstinted, unqualified and
total support and huge patience that alone helped and enabled us to get
these critical provisions included in the Cabinet decision to fully
safeguard our career growth in BSNL as well as the growth of the
also take this opportunity to assure our Comrades that whatever adverse
provisions are contained in the Cabinet decision that affect us or
growth of the Company in any manner would be fought tooth and nail
would be absolutely no let up in our sustained fight to safeguard our
legitimate interests and those of the Company.
This decision of the Cabinet dated 13.02.2013 finally lay
to rest the issue of absorption of ITS in BSNL/MTNL. However, to know
the finer and elaborate contents of the Cabinet decision, minutes of the
Cabinet meeting are being awaited.
CHQ of SNEA(I) makes an
impassioned appeal to each and every Comrade throughout Country to
extend unqualified and total support to the struggle by the working
class on 20th and 21st Feb -2013
by participating in demonstrations, rallies etc. on a massive scale and
extending support and solidarity to the struggle in every possible
order to mitigate the learning difficulties for officers who are of 55
years and above age on the date of their respective up-gradation order,
they will have the option of undergoing one week Refresher Course
as a part of the mandatory training under EPP followed by appearing in
online exam at the respective Training Centre. The options from
such willing officers would be compiled by the respective CGMs and
forwarded to the RTTCs so as to enable them to schedule and conduct
refresher courses for such executives. In the case of, Corporate Office,
the options from such officers would be compiled by respective staff
branches and forwarded to ALTTC for conduct of course

NewDelhi delivered an important judgement in Management Trainee RR case
filed by the Association
Hon. PCAT NewDelhi declared that
the restriction on age and qualification for internal candidates in the

revise the MT RR accordingly.
Further the Hon. Court directed
that the ongoing MT recruitment process should be completed as per the
interim direction given by the Hon. Ernakulam CAT (i.e) without age and
This is a great victory for the
stand taken by this Association,
that the restriction of age and qualification in MT RR is discriminatory
