Dec 24,2011 CHQ News:-

  • BSNL Board has approved the new Recruitment Rules as a one time measure to recruit around 450 SAG/HAG officers in the E9 grade and 600 JAG/NFSG officers  in the E6, E7 grade. We are carefully examining the provisions of RRs and its effect on our carrier aspects.
  • Association was called for a discussion by CMD on 22.12.2011.

    GS along with both AGSs met CMD and CMD while conveying congratulations to the Association for its stand in forcing DoT to decisively act against private operators for 3G policy violation by asking them to forthwith stop providing 3G services in licence areas where they are not having 3G spectrum, also sought the support and cooperation of the Association to see how BSNL is exempted from making huge payment for 2G spectrum in excess of 6.2 MHz that it holds in many circles. BSNL’s revenues will be adversely impacted by the directions of DoT to all service providers to make extra payment for the 2G spectrum they hold beyond 6.2 mhz.


    Association assured that it will try its level best and mobilise all resources to ensure that BSNL gets exempted from this policy decision of DoT.


    CMD then switched over to a discussion on filling up post of DGMs through seniority quota as well as through Management Trainee (MT) Recruitment. CMD expressed his keenness for the first time since his joining to take expeditious action to resolve the stalemate that prevents filling up of DGM posts through seniority and holding of competitive exam for the recritment of MT.


    From our side we reiterated if BSNL Management is serious and honest to fill up DGM post, it is not a difficult proposition. We requested CMD to prevail upon concerned officers in DoT to clear the stalemate they have created by giving unwarranted and confusing directions to BSNL. CMD assured that he will take very quick action and try to prevail upon officers in DoT including Secretary DoT to allow BSNL to fill up the posts of DGM.


    On the issue of holding of examination for recruitment of MTs, Association reiterated its stand to fill up all the posts of MTs from within the organisation through competitive exam without any restriction of age and qualification since abundant talent from within the organisation is available. CMD assured to examine this aspect also as quickly as possible.

  • Management has approved to conduct LDCE from JTO to SDE(T). Very shortly the LDCE will be notified for the same vacancy years and for the same number of vacancies.  Most likely the LDCE will be conducted in the month of March'12
  • It is reliably learnt that the BSNL Board has approved E1+5(increments)for JTOs who have joined after 1.1.2007

Dec 23,2011  Yet another great breakthrough of Association stand on policy front.

Association's Writ petition admitted  in the bench of Chief Justice of Delhi high Court challenging 3G roaming created strong compulsion on DOT to act expeditiously in the direction of issuing show cause notices to Idea , Bharti and Vodaphone.

TRAI and DOT both made as the principle respondents in the writ petition filed by the association.

Stand of association on illegitimate sale of 3G services by private operators like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea etc without 3G spectrum and licence stands fully vindicated – DoT decided to issue notices to these operators for violation of policy.TRAI maintains that sale of 3G services without 3G spectrum will not be allowed even if 3G spectrum sharing is permitted by fresh policy.

Dec 15,,2011 CONGRATULATIONS! STRIKE SUCCESSFUL ALL OVER INDIA.:Strike of JAC at Nashik BSNL is 100% successful. BSNL Offices and Telephone Exchanges remained closed today. Non optee ITS officers were not allowed to enter BSNL premises. All transactions of Nashik BSNL came to standstill. Strike has proved that now non optee ITS officers have no role to play in BSNL. Their inefficiency is no more required in BSNL. We want the management consisting of people fully devoted to our organization. We want the people who possess the daring to have everything at stake for welfare of our beloved organization. We don't want people who love flattery for no work done. We don't need the serpents sitting on our treasure waiting for nullification of its value in the market so that they could scrap the equipments. They have sold everything , but fortunately there are Executives and Non Executives in BSNL with un- wavered confidence & we would not allow further disintegration of BSNL. DS Com.M.B.Sangale has extended thanks to all SNEA Office bearers, activists & comrades for 100% participation and support. DS has also congratulated all JAC constituents for 100% success. The unity and solidarity shown by the Nashik BSNL Employees is outstanding. The dedication of the Executives & Non executives towards development of BSNL needs to be learned by non optee ITS fraternity. 

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.- So comrades don't get offended by Corporate office order-No work no pay. The order is very good in principle. We do the work when we are inside. But these outsiders don't work or work only with intention of selling BSNL assets. Therefore with principle of natural justice pay & allowances paid for 11 years need to be recovered.

Prior to our strike today in the morning Our Circle President Com.S.V.Bhad has extended thanks for the strong basic preparations we have made for one day token strike today in support of the call given by JAC. He further stated that ' we have seen very positive response from all comrades & anger is seen in the eyes of every comrade of BSNL against blind approach of BSNL management & anti BSNL policies.

Dec 15,,2011 Strike is stoppage of work in support of bargaining position or in protest of some aspect of a previous agreement or proposed agreement between Employees and the management. Employees usually go on strike for  - i] Getting improvements where they work, ii] for money, iii] for shorter working days ,iv] to stop their wages going down , v] because they think their company has been unfair.

Our strike is different. We are fighting for policy related issues, for fulfillment of the commitments and betterment of our company. No doubt some issues related to wages & facilities too form the part of demands. We are not suddenly plunging into strike. We did provide all opportunities to the management for betterment rather than settlement. On 15 Dec 2011 we have one day strike. Main intention is to prove to these dishonest non optees that we are united. We are not merely fighting for monetary gains, we have larger issues. It is not for our survival only, it is for survival of our beloved organization. Major contention is that management is not serious in handling the competitive environment or rather it is working for our competitors knowingly or unknowingly they themselves better know.  The people who are part of the management behave as if they are foreigners handling the state of their slaves. They don't belong. They do not have sense of belonging & without the sense of belonging nothing can move. We are not against them, we wish they to become the part of our organization , accept patronage ;but they don't want to be the part; they wish to run the organization externally with nothing at stake. Notable percentage among them have doubtful integrity. When there is nothing at stake, lethargy comes. Our management is passing through that lethargic state. This has to be changed if we seriously wish our organization to survive.

Therefore Comrades, be united, exhibit solidarity and contribute in the struggle for our existence. Struggle, if not the human quality of modern era, be an animal and struggle for survival instead of disappearing into a void. Our survival will be survival of telecommunication in India. Else days of Rs.36 per minute and heavy charging on incoming calls would reappear. We need to enlighten our customers. We have to earn their sympathy for our struggle. Let not destiny rule our existence. Protest! because protest indicates that you are alive.

All the Executives and Non Executives were full of enthusiasm and assured the leaders that the strike will be 100% successful.

Dec 13,,2011 JAC NASHIK DECIDED TO GO ON STRIKE ON 15 DEC 2011:- Based on the strike notice issued by the JAC, talks were held between the Director (HR) and the Joint Action Committee on 12-12-2011. Management was not able to solve any of the issue for which notice has been given. Hence, there is no change in the decision to go on strike. Strike will take place on 15-12-2011. Therefore JAC Nashik met today -13 Dec 2011 at TRC Hall and unanimously decided to go on one day strike on 15.12.2011. The leaders present in the meeting were Com.S.V.Bhad-CP SNEA Maharashtra, Com.V.P.Kulkarni-CS AIBSNLEA, Com.M.B.Sangale-DS SNEA(I), Com.B.D.Gaikar-DS AIBSNLEA,Com.G.N.Wagh-DS BSNLEU Com.Dilip Godse-DS NFTE Com.G.G.Borase , Shri.L.M.Shinde-DP BTEU & Com.P.B.Vispute-Org Sec SNEA.

Other Circle need to learn something from these states.  <Details>

Dec 9,,2011 CHQ-

Remarkable breakthrough because of extraordinarily sustained and singular efforts of our Association – Govt. finally decides to refund obsolete BWA spectrum charges to BSNL.

This Association took up the issue of refund of BWA spectrum charges to BSNL with Hon’ble PM and MOC&IT since the 2635-2655 Mhz TDD band that was allocated to BSNL was non-  standardized and redundant in terms of the band having serious deficiency of not being able to provide Wimax on upcoming highly competitive Long Term Evolution Platform(LTE) and lacking economy of scale since international telecom gear manufacturers are not manufacturing Wimax equipment in  the obsolete band that BSNL was allocated. Association gathered all the critical facts on the issue and met Secy/DOT in Feb.11 to apprise him about serious discrimination met out to BSNL by allocating it a non standardized BWA spectrum band after it paid market value of Rs 8313 crores. We explained in detail to Secy/DOT as to how the entire investment of Rs 8313 crores that BSNL has made towards obsolete BWA spectrum is frozen in view of obsolescence of the spectrum band and urged upon him to refund the spectrum charges. Secy/DOT while expressing that he was not aware about serious shortcomings of the band and suggested to take up the issue with MOC&IT. Thereafter, Association tried its level best to convince the concerned Director (CM) / BSNL to take decision to surrender the spectrum band and seek refund of the spectrum charges. However, Director (CM), for incomprehensible and irrational reasons, remained unconvinced and did not act in any manner to seek refund of spectrum charges. Instead, Director (CM) frustrated the efforts of then PGM (CPM) to seek the refund of spectrum band. However, Association maintained consistent pressure and mobilized opinion from political quarters by meeting number of MPs and seeking their intervention. The issue, however, took a very decisive turn when Association succeeded in convincing present CMD to decide to surrender non standard spectrum and seek refund of BWA spectrum charges. CMD took a very tough position and virtually overturned the opinion of Director (CM) and BSNL/Board finally decided to surrender the spectrum and seek its refund. CMD made very strenuous efforts by holding series of discussions with concerned officers in DOT to impress upon them to refund BWA spectrum charges and simultaneously Association too continued with its efforts at other levels.  Finally, we understand that DOT has taken decision to refund BWA spectrum that BSNL is surrendering in about 17 Circles, leaving those circles where it has already made huge capital investment for roll out of wimax services. BSNL expects refund of about Rs 7000 crores after DOT completes other formalities relating to refund.  This is truly a remarkable breakthrough and we are extremely thankful to all those who supported us by providing valuable inputs enabling us to firmly position our stand to seek refund of BWA spectrum charges amounting to about Rs 7000 crores to BSNL. 

Similarly, we are confident that we shall succeed in securing a positive verdict from Hon’ble High Court of Delhi where our writ petition challenging 3G policy by private operators, adversely affecting legitimate business interests of BSNL has been admitted. BSNL also should be given complete flexibility to decided circles of its choice for 3G services instead of forcing it to pay Rs 10000 crores on 3G pan India spectrum and then allowing private operators to encroach upon its Pan India presence by entering into so called 3G roaming arrangements strictly forbidden by policy.This flexibility of deciding circles of its choice as given to other operators at the time of 3G auction will enable BSNL to save another four to five thousand crores in terms of 3G spectrum charges. Association is all determined to fight the issue legally and politically to its logical conclusion.

Com.G.G.Borase thanked all the executives for their solidarity. Com.M.B.Sangale, Com.S.A.Bhadane & Com.P.M.Joshi delivered informative & inspirational speeches & apprised the gathering of recent developments in the matter. All the Executives' expressed the opinion that non-optee ITS officers must be immediately repatriated as they have no business other than to hover here for personal gains. Utter selfishness of this commodity has brought BSNL to present horrible condition. It is unfortunate that people who are not an integral part of BSNL are allowed to be the policy makers leading it to the doom.  They are no more than the intruders in the business of BSNL as they have not opted for BSNL. BSNL has enough talent to run its  own business & there is no need of the people who cannot decide what to do in more than the eleven years.

  • Meeting with Shri Milind Deora, Hon'ble MOSC&IT:-GS. President AIBSNLEA, GS, AGSs of SNEA(I), GS/TEAM & GS/MEA of MTNL met Hon'ble MOS for C&IT Sh. Milind Deora & expressed  their sincere gratitude & thanks for granting us meeting.  We discussed with MOSC&IT the status of absorption process of   Group -'A' officers in BSNL/MTNL and apprised MOSC&IT about sinister efforts and game plan of BSNL/ MTNL Managements to derail the process. Hon'ble MOSC&IT appreciated our concern and sought our opinion about how the issue can be resolved. We explained the repatriation order of DoT issued on 03.11.2011 is not being implemented in true sense by BSNL/MTNL managements on the pretext that without the presence of ITS Officers it is difficult to run both the PSUs which is totally unfounded and misleading. We informed MOSC&IT that more than 54,000 absorbed Group-'A' and Group-'B' level executives are available in BSNL/MTNL to maintain flawless Telecom services & are committed to the growth of both these Companies. ITS dominated BSNL/MTNL managements have more trust on the deputationists instead of its own absorbed Group-'A' level executives due to their cadre affinity, we informed MOSC&IT. Even the charge on repatriation of some ITS officers have been given to the deputationist ITS officers instead of absorbed Gr A officers only who are ultimately going to be repatriated. This is deliberate conspiracy of both the managements to sabotage the process of repatriation, we further informed MOSC&IT. Hon'ble MOSC&IT gave a very patient hearing fully understanding the implications of continuing duality on viability of BSNL/MTNL and mentioned that he is fully aware of the issue and assured he will try for early solution of the problem. MOSC&IT was fully convinced that BSNL/MTNL should have their own managements.

Nov 15,2011Meeting with Hon'ble MOC&IT -GS & AGS SNEA(I), GS & President AIBSNLEA, , GS TEAM (MTNL) & GS(MEA) MTNL met Hon'ble MOC&IT Sh. Kapil Sibal & expressed  their sincere gratitude & thanks to him for vigorously re-initiating the process of absorption of ITS officers in BSNL/MTNL. Addl. Secy(T), DoT was also present in the meeting. We expressed our serious concern and anxiety against phased repatriation of deputationist officers from BSNL/MTNL, wherein the charge of deputationist officers is being further given to the deputationist officer only, who don't have any interest and commitment to work in BSNL/MTNL. We apprised Hon'ble MOC&IT that more than 54,000 absorbed Group-'A' and Group-'B' level executives are available in BSNL/MTNL to maintain flawless Telecom services & are committed to the growth of both these Companies.  Hon'ble MOC&IT while appreciating and fully endorsing our concern mentioned that he is fully aware of the issue and its impact on viability of BSNL/MTNL. MOC&IT assured that Govt. decision will be implemented in its true spirit, and in no case the decision will be diluted. We further apprised MOC&IT that BSNL/MTNL ITS dominated Management is more committed to protect the interests of ITS Cadre rather than safe guarding the interests of growth and viability of  BSNL/MTNL. Finally, we solicited MOC&IT's immediate kind intervention to complete the absorption process as quickly as possible and he responded in an affirmative and positive manner.

Nov 15,2011Lunch hour demonstration by United Forum -United forum of Executives' Associations at Nashik held Lunch hour demonstrations  Sanchar Bhavan, Nashik mainly on the issue of ITS Absorption. UF leaders - CP SNEA(I) Com.S.V.Bhad, Prez. SNEA (I),Nashik Com.S.A.Bhadane, DS SNEA(I),Nashik Com.M.B.Sangale and DS AIBSNLEA Com.B.D.Gaikar led the demonstrations. Com.M.B.Sangale, Com.S.V.Bhad and Com.P.M.Joshi addressed the gathering. Slogans were led by Com.S.V.Deore, Com. Wani & Com.A.R.Akhade.

Nov 15,2011Rumours of legally staying the process baseless:

Rumours of process of repatriation having been stayed legally are completely baseless. A legal notice from a lawyer has no legal sanctity and does not mean staying the process. BSNL management receives innumerable notices from lawyer’s everyday on different issues which are thrown to the dustbin and not even taken elementary cognizance of, let alone acting on them.

It is of course a different matter and not at all surprising if this notice from privileged class in the Company receives highly privileged treatment by treating it as a court direction to stall the process. It is this highly biased and extremely narrow attitude of BSNL management that raises bona fide, serious and genuine doubts on their integrity that needs to be fully exposed.

Nov 14,2011United Forum for BSNL Executives at Nashik had a meeting today as per schedule.

Nov 9,2011Sample relieve order for repatriation to DOT for Gr.A  Officers who've not opted for absorption in BSNL <Letter>

Nov 9,2011Status on ITS Absorption:

GS and GS/AIBSNLEA along with its President met concerned officers in DOT dealing with the issue of absorption and requested them to be tough on the issue and not be carried away by false opinion of BSNL management that BSNL will collapse in the event of repatriation of ITS. Further, we apprised them that no CPSU has a borrowed management structure and continuance of such a mechanism in BSNL for eleven years has pulled down BSNL to present position. Cries of Crisis, crisis, crisis by BSNL management are nothing but a deliberate strategy of BSNL management to protect ITS and allow them to continue in BSNL illegitimately. Very tough and unwavering response is needed from DOT to conclude this issue which is extremely vital for viability of BSNL.

Officers dealing with absorption indicated that government is very firm and means business in real terms. Government is not going to yield to the pressure tactics of BSNL management and will ensure that in a phased manner each and everyone not opting for BSNL will be surely repatriated.

We understand that absorption process is being implemented in a phased manner and CMD has given commitments to DOT about definite time frame in which the process will be concluded.

In the meantime, to register our strongest protest against BSNL management for its insistence on completing absorption in a phased manner, we are planning to hold a massive rally at Delhi along with our MTNL Comrades on the day orders to complete absorption in a phased manner are issued. We are determined to fight it out this time till such time each and every ITS officer not opting for BSNL is repatriated to DOT.

 We appeal to our Comrades throughout the Country to be fully ready to fight this war like situation. We commit to our comrades that we will not sit back till our goal of repatriation of ITS who have been continuing illegitimately in BSNL for six years is accomplished. Be ready for a do or die fight to save our beloved company.

Joint   Forum  of   BSNL Absorbed  Executive Associations

ITS dominated BSNL management defeating ITS absorption on lines similar to 2005 - No strategy   plan of action so far - Deliberate delay larger sinister strategy to plunge the Company in crisis to justify and force continuing illegitimate deputation at the eleventh hour.  

More than 300 direct recruit Gr A, 3000 promoted Gr A and 50,000 Gr B absorbed executives highly qualified, talented and competent to maintain flawless services and growth related functions.  

Joint forum of absorbed executives seeks immediate intervention to implement Government’s decision on absorption which is being defeated by persistent collaborative diabolical strategy of BSNL management and ITS for 11 years.

Oct12,2011 GS addresses Hon MOC &IT on ITS absorption - Building BSNLs management structure pivotal to its revival – No other policy initiative howsoever potential will work unless borrowed top management hierarchy is replaced by one belonging to BSNL. Key recommendation of Pitroda panel regarding induction of 30-50 management experts alone holds incredibly huge potential of once again positioning BSNL as dominant telecom player in all aspects.

Policy makers at the helm should be easily able to see through the deadly consequences of continuing with a borrowed management structure in BSNL. Even more deadly would be diabolical mechanism of having management structure through backdoor deputation: this sinister arrangement would mean heralding death bells for BSNL. Pragmatic and realistic approach that would give a new lease of life to BSNL would be to introduce a management structure belonging to the Company and this structure could be a blend of talent from the market and within ITS. After all, abundant talent is available in ITS and this talent should be given first priority while finalizing management structure of the Company. In fact, ITS repatriated should have first right of refusal while finalizing management ladder of the Company.

Concerned arms of the Government must not through their usual sheer bureaucratic inertia and sluggishness - the way concerned agencies of the government have been in deep slumber so far on this issue of far reaching consequences as far as viability and growth of BSNL goes - create a fait accompli for itself where DOT runs helter skelter at the last moment and is forced to take ITS on deputation. That would be the end of BSNL and the narrow game plan of ITS on which it has been working assiduously for over a decade to get insulated from insecurities and risks of working in a challenging and competitive commercial enterprise and yet preside over its affairs with no stakes whatsoever will be through. Top management has to have complete stake in the Company and be an integral and inalienable component of the organization. Then only do commercial organizations operating in an ultra competitive environment move forward. It is a hard reality to be acknowledged by everyone, including ITS dominated BSNL management. >>>>>>>>>>>

JAC Fast 27-09-2011:- 

 CS Com.M.S.Adsul has congratulated us on grand success of agitation program of Mass fast. The message is displayed for our Nashik comrades. Many more photos of Nashik fast are available on our Circle website.

Congratulations Comrade.

Nashik has always active role in any JAC activities and this time also this is a grand success. Please convey our congratulations to all the comrades of Nashik and specifically Com. M.B.Sangle, DS & Com. S.V.Bhad, Circle President and other District leaders for their active and leading role in making this massive fast very successful.

Comradely Yours,
M S Adasul,

Fast organized by JAC was highly successful. Executives and Non executives participated in mass fast in protest against VRS & other anti employee & anti developmental policies of BSNL management & Govt. JAC agitation was led by our DS Com.M.B.Sangale as JAC secretary. JAC leaders Com.S.V.Bhad, Com.M.B.Sangale,Com.V.P.Kulkarni, Com.G.N.Wagh, Com.S.A.Bhadane, Com.Dilip Godse, vehemently explained our stand on all demands. It is very positive sign that many other comrades are aware of present situation & many of them participated in sharing of information available with them. Other speakers include Com.A.R.Akhade,Com.A.S.Yeole,  Com.L.P.Joshi, Com.S.P.Nikam etc. TAC member Shri.Pagar also paid visit to the pendol and assured to support our cause on the political platform available for him. Com.Sangale & Com.Wagh thanked Shri.Pagar. All the leaders appealed Executives and Non Executives to make strike on 10-10-2011 successful to foil the evil proposal of BSNL management.

On our CHQ site it is mentioned that VRS is not Panacea to turnaround BSNL. That is to say it is not a remedy to all problems that BSNL is at present exposed to. Panacea was the Goddess of healing as per Greek mythology. VRS is not going to function on behalf of Panacea or rather it will work against her ,  as a result her sister Hygiea the Goddess of good health will get annoyed on erroneous diagnosis and another sister Aceso, the Goddess of recovery will not allow us to recover if we do not overthrow the erroneous prescription. BSNL management perhaps has gone to an inexperienced doctor whose sole endeavor is to kill his patient rather than to treat him. The virus of privatization imported by the Government will become dangerously powerful as it is regularly fed adequately by BSNL management & our position may become far more vulnerable. We will be a commodity heading towards extinction. Dear Comrades, the policy of divide and rule is not new to Indians. Let we not succumb to it once more. That should not become our tradition. The issue is not related only to our survival, it is far greater than this. Roti, Kapada, Makaan and communication – the basic needs of this era may become rare commodity and survival of all Indian will be at stake.

The cause of retardation as we and all know is Corruption. It is result of the rotten taste of our management and the Government. The policy decisions are directed on all fronts towards personal growth. The bank accounts of policy makers are overflowing in abundance and we are shown the virtual image of bankruptcy of our beloved organization. The endeavor of any Government has to produce more job opportunities and not to render people jobless. If a Government Company is treading the path of crushing existing job opportunities what lesson the private companies will learn that is needless to say. So comrades, awake, mobilize, enlighten and be ready to defeat the sinister move of making us jobless and beheading our beloved organization towards extinction.

 Sept 26,2011 The news “Will anybody bail the cat” dated 24.09.2011 is not to blame any particular individual. It is the real fact that customer has to suffer a lot on account of “Tolava-tolvi” .

 Sept 14,2011 Explanation SNEA(I) not protesting - Dear Comrades our Circle Prez Com.S.V.Bhad has explained our stand. BSNL is in loss, media and politicians will not support our agitation, LTC is not stopped for the employees retiring within two years & we can get it after two years within same slab. Medical with vouchers is available from recognized hospitals. From Oct 11 MTNL is cutting salary by 25% and next victims should not be BSNL. JAC is only for development issues. Moreover we are aware of issues related to mandays [Contract labors] which are going to put more financial burden on BSNL & risks. Court cases & such issues have led obstruction to work and still we have not left issue we can fight. Please go through the letter Hon. Jogi Sir has put on CHQ site.

JAC has to stay on course and get united:

 JAC fundamentally came into existence in 2007 to launch broad based and sustained struggle on issues of policy of the government and the BSNL management. The struggle started on the issue of cancellation of 45.5 m GSM lines.

 Over a period of time, JAC lost its objectivity and focus in terms of a serious drift on issues of policy. Today BSNL is bleeding because the government has abdicated all the policy commitments that BSNL is entitled to, namely, abolition of ADC, USOF, Rural service compensation, refund of spectrum charges for giving BSNL non standard BWA spectrum (Rs 8300 crores), payment of pension by BSNL on actual basic, ITS absorption, so on and so forth. Then there are critical policy issues pertaining to BSNL management i.e procurement of equipment, introducing new business mechanisms and processes to bolster growth of BSNL, greater accountability, performance based HR policies etc. etc.

 Unfortunately, these issues have gone out of sight of JAC and unless these issues are addressed through unending, protracted and sustained struggle, struggle on other issues have virtually no meaning because other issues will get addressed once policy issues are attacked comprehensively. Hectic political and media support is needed and this support will be forthcoming once policy issues are focused and a sustained struggle is launched on those issues, whereas support will be completely absent on other issues.

Besides, JAC has gone considerably weak since two affiliates (NFTE and FNTO) have moved out for whatever reasons. Almost a parallel JAC is functioning which is counterproductive and undesirable. Weaknesses in JAC have become quite pronounced after the latest membership verification. Extraordinary maturity at this critical hour when there is a big question mark about bread and butter of lakhs and lakhs of workers has to be displayed by one and all to forge complete unity. This is really no time for petty politicking and scoring of points. And if the leadership of trade unions do not rise to the occasion by bidding good bye to internal squabbles and settling of scores, posterity will never forgive them for being extremely narrow minded and peevish

 JAC has to undergo drastic transformation in prioritizing issues, deciding strategies, getting political and media support, project essentially issues of policy and finally making it once again formidable force that it emerged in 2007. 

This is without prejudice to anyone, and SNEA(I) cannot and does not escape its share of responsibility in taking JAC to its present position. Thus JAC needs immediate course correction in raising and struggling intensely on issues of policy and injecting new life. SNEA(I) shall unquestionably continue to remain an integral part of JAC.

GS addresses Hon Prime Minister - Association solicit Hon PM's benign intervention by directing telecom policy enforcers to   immediately revisit critical policy commitments that BSNL is entitled to for accomplishing social objectives of national telecom policy which have been arbitrarily abandoned without any analytical evaluation. If such an intervention is not forthcoming on war footing, government’s prestigious and strategic telecom behemoth is destined to perish.

Scripting of exit policy another telecom policy reversal to legitimize yet another policy breach by private operators. In stark contrast, BSNL is forced to bleed because of abdication of policy commitments by government to support it for its extraordinary role in meeting social objectives of telecom policy.    

Ever since first National telecom policy (NTP) 95 was drafted, private operators have blatantly violated policy provisions and each policy breach has been followed by policy amendments to legitimize breach of policy. Tweaking of NTP, 95 by replacing it by NTP, 99 to bail out private operators from paying fixed licence fees of Rs 1,26,000 crores to Government assumed shape of new telecom policy called NTP,99. Again in the year 2008, Government, in the name of breaking cartelization of private operators for healthy competition in rural sector, increased number of operators per circle to 14. Private operators, in naked defiance of policy, strictly confined themselves to green pastures, leaving inaccessible and loss making areas to   BSNL, which made incredibly huge investments for growth of these remote areas.

 In fact, private operators are so much confident that every policy violation they perpetrate would be legitimized by policy reversals that they violate policy provisions with impunity, and every policy breach is followed by policy correction to legitimize policy breach. The exit policy being drafted now in the garb of efficient and optimum usage of spectrum is just to legitimize latest serious breach of policy already perpetrated by private operators. In blatant violation of 3G policy provisions, by entering into an illegitimate roaming agreement with each other, restrained by policy, private operators are providing 3G services in Circles where they did not bid for 3G spectrum and do not have 3G licence.  

This serious infringement of 3G policy provisions, strictly forbidding providing of 3G services unless one has 3G licence, perpetrated by Airtel in collusion with other private operators is likely to be legitimized by exit policy under consideration. MOC&IT is apprised in detail about violation of policy vide letter under reference (copy enclosed).

In sharp and striking contrast, while uninterrupted policy reversals to legitimize persistent and deliberate policy breaches by private operators forms core of telecom policy of the government, BSNL is being mercilessly and relentlessly butchered by Government by denying legitimate policy commitments it is entitled to. Concrete policy commitments contained in NTP, 99 to compensate BSNL for meeting social obligations of the government have been summarily set aside as have other major policy commitments like payment of ADC and USOF, reimbursement of huge investments made for growth of rural telecom infrastructure, both basic and wireless, on account of which BSNL is bleeding profusely etc. been arbitrarily and unilaterally done away with in contravention of envisaged policy commitments.

Mechanism of ADC meticulously worked out and put in place by TRAI to compensate BSNL for incredibly huge investments it made for growth of massive rural telecom infrastructure both fixed and wireless is abolished arbitrarily, without quantifying returns on unbelievably huge investments.

 BSNL has already profusely bled and continues to bleed for providing rural services and has inflicted colossal loss of more than Rs 10,000 cores for this activity. This hard reality continues to fall on the deaf ears of those dealing with USOF. Administrator USOF and bureaucrats in MOF who do not acknowledge herculean role and incredibly huge investment of BSNL without any returns in building massive rural telecom infrastructure should rub their eyes to find Airtel doubling its tariffs in the name of meeting rural services expenditure even though it is yet to make any investment in building rural infrastructure. 

3G pan India licence was thrust on BSNL (forced to pay highest Rs 10,000 crores) by depriving it of opportunity to bid on circle wise basis (private operators were offered complete freedom to decide circles of their choice since they knew they were to violate policy only to be legitimized).

 BSNL has been given a non standard BWA spectrum after paying market value of about Rs 8300 cores in sharp contrast to private operators who for the same value got standard BWA spectrum. Despite consistently urging upon DOT to either allocate appropriate BWA spectrum band or allow it to surrender redundant band and thus refund Rs 8300 crores, no decision is taken thus far. Assets of DOT are not transferred to BSNL as committed at the time of corporatization of DOT, even ten years have elapsed.    

 What is shocking is that government is disintegrating its own mammoth Company by persistently   abdicating envisaged policy commitments to safeguard BSNL, thus failing to recognize key, fundamental and unending role it has played and is to play in meeting telecom objectives of the government to   provide universal services at affordable prices. Trade unions in BSNL representing three lakh workers are miffed at MOC&IT keeping himself at a great distance and insulated from them. Feedback from the largest stakeholders of the Company can be rejuvenating, mind boggling and invaluable, provided MOC&IT recognizes the critical and overriding importance of inputs from workers and huge insight they  provide, based on hard ground realities which are seldom reflected by bureaucracy for its own reasons.

 We solicit Hon PM's benign intervention by directing telecom policy enforcers to   immediately revisit critical policy commitments that BSNL is entitled to for accomplishing social objectives of national telecom policy which have been arbitrarily abandoned without any analytical evaluation. If such an intervention is not forthcoming on war footing, government’s prestigious and strategic telecom behemoth is destined to perish.  >>>>>>>>>>>>

Sept 12,2011 Some Executives working in External sections suggested to popularize provision of Landline fault booking from mobile phone. By dialing 0253-21982198 one can lodge LL complaint. The need to popularize the access to IVRS based complaint booking arose from the fact that many customers complain in writing without lodging it through available provision for complaint. This delays rectification of fault and customer remains unknown to the best and easiest method to lodge complaint. It is therefore requested to confirm first whether customer has lodged a complaint or not. No doubt his written complaint too must be attended but he may be suitably informed the provision to lodge complaint from mobile phone.

15 August 2011



We are celebrating 65th Independence day. The vigor and enthusiasm which was seen earlier is not visible now a days. The national spirit is adversely cultivated by few political leaders in the direction of caste and race. Caste & race has got upper hand now a days. It is high time to retrospect & introspect  what we have achieved since independence. Let us not be cynical. We did achieve a lot but we have also developed one virus in our culture which is severely detrimental to society as whole. No nation can coexist with this virus. The virus is corruption and it is menacingly contaminating our democracy. It is not so simple to believe that there will be an age in which there will be no drawbacks. But this does not mean that we are relieved of the obligation to fight for the defects which we have recognized. We must try to overcome the flaw and strive for the ideal state. Present era in Indian democracy is overpowered by corruption and it has become an integral part of our existence spoiling the very roots of our culture. It is difficult to find a man who has not succumbed to corrupt practices in his life. It does not mean that he has lost the right to fight against this menace. On the other hand he would be the best soldier to fight against it as he knows the minute details of work culture of this virus. "Frailty thy name is woman" is true in the context of Shakespeare's play but the fact is the human race itself justifies the statement equally for all human beings irrespective of gender. Reign of that frailty is in the hands of society. Instances of this frailty are more if society as a whole  is deteriorating. We all know that abundance of evil is a high time to take an arms against it. Similarly it is the perfect time to invigorate our youth as well as society as a whole to overcome menace of corruption. If we do have some nationality still left among us and we are born humane we will join hands with the forces that have raised hands and vowed to sacrifice life if required. Indifference has to be named culpable crime. Proper  direction need to be given to the unrest among masses. There might be some setbacks as devil of corruption will not let you win so easily. Such failures must not induce us to renounce our intentions. Let all of us not make our life- 'A tale told by an idiot full of sounds and fury signifying nothing.'

 July 19,2011  Marketting and sale of CDMA product/service :- Corporate Office has issued letter for proper marketing and sale of CDMA product/services. < letter >. Huge capacity of CDMA network is lying idle. Thousands of RUIM cards are available with SSAs but there is no planning for utilization of these cards. Promotional offers are declared on prepaid CDMA mobiles but services are yet to be launched- reason unknown. Apathy of management on utilization of CDMA products/services is horrible. Mere issue of letters will not serve the cause. Responsible persons need to be taken to task for ignoring the opportunity and wastage of investment.

 July 14,2011 We are proud to announce that Com. R K Narang, ADS SNEA (I) GMTD Bhopal Branch had  proposed some tariff plans of Broadband and the same were forwarded by CS SNEA  MP to GS SNEA. Three Broadband plans were sent to Corporate Office for approval were-
Broadband Plan-1:-Two years Broadband Plan- Pay the amount for 2 years and get service for next 3 years i.e. a rebate of about 33%. This is to be viewed in such a way that if a person puts his money in bank for 2 years Fixed Deposit he will get 9.5 % PA Interest.
Broadband Plan-2:-Three Years Broadband Plan- Pay the money for 3 years and get service for next 5 years i.e. a rebate of about 40%.

Out of these 3 plans BSNL Corporate Office Vide Letter No. 1-1/2009-R&C [CFA] Dated: 08-06-2011 has approved Broadband Plan-1  & 2 with minor changes in duration. We feel this is a big achievement that R&C [CFA] section of Corporate Office has prepared above 2 highly attractive Broadband plans on proposal of SNEA.

 July 06,2011

The unrest created by news "OBC to OBC free" in one newspaper is classic example of immature journalism. The Reporter created sensation without going through the contents of the plan. His intention to derogate BSNL is condemned by SNEA(I),Nashik. He is ignorant of the fact that any group can opt for CUG plan subject to the fulfillment of the conditions laid down by the operator and TRAI. It is business strategy , not only of BSNL but of all Mobile operators. The reporter himself may apply for Reporter to Reporter free plan if he can form a group of 50 reporters and he may negotiate further if he has ability to expand his group. The CUG plan is not caste based, it is quantity [number of customers]  based. Any group can apply for the plan. The naive reporter has nothing to say about the real culprits and promoters of caste culture. The newspaper too publishes the news without any scrutiny.

It is not our endeavor to criticize any Newspaper or Reporter, nor do we need to give explanation. We are answerable to our esteemed customers only.

The meeting is convened to decide line of action against irresponsible attitude of Nashik administration. The points of discussion are-

1.Fiasco of GSM BTS maintenance team recently formed involving transfer of Executives and NEs to the team on flimsy grounds.

2.Neglecting development activities and ignorance of administration about important revenue earning areas. JTO Gonde transferred without substitute Transfer order -<<<*>>> and his work allotted to imaginary group maintenance team under DGM CFA-II. Rainy Seasonal requirement for non-transfer of Executives' also ignored.

3.Harrasment to the Executives in sanctioning of temporary advances.

4.Team formation for names' sake. No action to convene meetings of the team.

5.Failure of administration to handle mandays' tender issue.

6. Non issuance of the minutes of meetings conducted by Sr.GMT with both DS over transfer issue. Without taking cognizance of association transfers are issued.

7. No action on the issue of tremendous shortage of Executives in Nashik SSA as compared to other GrA SSAs. [ -17 ] , All other Gr.A SSAs have excess executives.

8. Violation of Corporate Office transfer policy.

9.Awarding promotion on look after basis in the cadre of DE by violating the rulings. Sanctioned DE- 18, posted- 18, then without proper justification and approval how Mr.Hazare and Mr.Dongre is given charge of AGM[CS] and DE[Udaan]. Whether they are more intelligent and  having outstanding performance that administration is forced to award them a gift.

All this is beyond tolerance and it is high time to arrest & protest anti-development & anti-Executive activities.

June 3,2011-Hon. Sr.GMT Nashik talked with our DS Com.M.B.Sangale on the issues addressed in our letter dated 2nd June 2011. Our DS brought to the notice of Hon.Sr.GMT the highly objectionable letter issued by AGM [Admin]to DS SNEA(I),Nashik. Hon.Sr.GMT replied that the letter is issued to DS's of both the Executives' association however fresh letter with corrections will be issued.

On the issue of relieving of the Executives' under local transfer Hon.Sr.GMT assured to examine the cases of EWSD Nashikroad and Cidco and necessary arrangement of staff and support will be extended.

Regarding meetings on the various committees constituted for name's sake Hon.Sr.GMT assured to convene meeting in a weeks time.

Hon.Sr.GMT further informed that the issue of shortage of Executives is taken with Circle office and in response  Com.B.R.Singh and Com. U.K.Pagare got relieved without substitute and have joined Nashik SSA. No doubt we know the fact that the pressure exercised by our Circle President Com.S.V.Bhad has yielded the result.

June 3,2011-SNEA(I) takes pride in the rare feat achieved by its member: Our SNEA member Sri D.Ramesh Kumar SDE (GSM-MSC), Vellore (+919443200799) has done a very marvelous achievement and a very big savings to our beloved Company.

As per the DoT guidelines, MNP had to be implemented in the entire Network before 31.08.2010. When there was an instruction from BSNL to make all the Network Elements in BSNL compatible for the MNP rollout across the country, Nortel vendor did not come forward to make the Nortel GSM Switches MNP compatible, citing some reasons. Nortel switches are functioning in South and east zones. Under these circumstances, BSNL was in a tight corner and started issuing instructions to arrange for diverting the Nortel traffic to Huawei/NSN make MSCs/GMSCs on immediate basis, so as to make GSM network of South Zone MNP compliant at the earliest. Obviously, to cater for the diverted traffic, expansion of Huawei / NSN switches would be inevitable in many places.

Shri D.Ramesh Kumar  SDE(MSC) of Vellore MSC, thought that there would be a gross loss to BSNL in investing for the expansion and also the loss that would be incurred by closing down of 22 Nortel switches across South Zone. Moreover, it would be difficult to adhere to the DoT deadline. To tide over these, he started exploring the Nortel Switch in depth and studied various applications available in it. Without any help from any source including Nortel, he succeeded in configuring the Nortel Switch MNP compatible after a long battle. There were lot of hurdles in every step of  various call-type  processing scenerios , SMS, CDR genererations etc., which were addressed by him successfully. The entire process was explained in a high level meeting with all concerned and it was accepted and approved.

Later, in charges of Nortel Switches across South zone attended the meeting convened in Vellore. They were explained of the complete method of procedure of how to go about implementing MNP in Nortel Switches. All the participants were distributed with a hand-out about this. In the days that followed, Mr Ramesh Kumar was contacted frequently from all Nortel switches during implementation for guidance.

The end result is that all the 22 nortel switces in SZ were made MNP compatible without any expenditure or suffering any loss by the company. Our member has saved Rs. 24,57,00,000/- by way of avoiding expansions, and prevented loss of Rs. 81,72,00,000/- by way of preventing closure of Nortel switches in South Zone. Does he not deserve a big pat? He was encouraged constantly by Sri D. Sivaraj Sr GM(NW-O) CM, Coimbatore and Shri R.Elangovan DGM (MS), Vellore.

March 10th 1876, witnessed the birth of telephone. Graham Bell wanted the greeting on telephone to be 'Ahoy', which later was changed by Abram Lincon as 'Hello'.

May 11,2011-District Secretary Com.M.B.Sangale has appreciated efforts of our President Com.S.A.Bhadane and Treasurer Com.G.G.Borse in increasing SNEA(I),Nashik Membership. We salute the zeal and endeavor shown by our Prez and Treasurer. DS has further appealed all Comrades to work for 100% SNEA membership at Nashik SSA.

  • Three new members join SNEA(I),Nashik. Com.G.G.Borse Trasurer has collected membership forms from Com.N.L.Jadhav-SDE Civil, Com.P.N.Fale & Com.Smt.Kranti N.Ohol -JTOs. SNEA(I),Nashik wholeheartedly welcomes all of them to our ever-growing pariwar.

May 09,2011-REGARDING USE OF HIRED VEHICLE:-DS has appealed all the Executives' to check whether hired vehicle used by them is as per allotment; if it is not so, in case of any problem it will be the responsibility of that individual to resolve the matter. Association is not going to intervene in such cases.

May 07,2011-BSNLCO issued directions to CGMs not to implement JTO to SDE promotions issued on 30.03.2011 till further orders >>>>>

No JTO promoted to SDE grade under this office order dt.30.3.2011 & subsequent orders be further relieved from today onwards to join their new posting on promotion. Further instruction in this regard will be issued in due course by this office based on Court direction & decision taken

(ii) Further, all the JTOs who already stand relieved by various circles and have not reported for their assigned postings so far be asked to join back as JTOs at their previous place of  posting. ln this regard further instruction will be given in due course by this office based on Court direction & decision taken.

(iii) As regards the JTOs who have joined their promoted assignment w.e.f. .30.4.2011 i.e.from the date Hon'ble CAT Chennai decision came to notice, till date may be asked to wait Their promotion order with respect to the new posting may not ,be issued for the time being. Such cases will be decided on the basis of the directions of the Hon'ble Court in due course.

(iv) Any other issue faced by the circles in respect of the above, may be brought to the notice of this office.

Extraordinary and shrewd Executives are using the tool of request transfer brilliantly to avoid transfer on the basis of longest stay. When you are due for transfer as per longest stay list- apply for nearby SSA transfer. You can also opt for hard tenure station for the purpose and get the option cancelled once the tsunami of transfers is over or you are dropped out of intra circle or local urban to rural transfer. If you have excess money you can try political influence or legal gateways. The community of Executives in this category is increasing. It is not understood how associations promote such requests thereby torturing the affected candidates at tenure or other stations expecting transfer to home Circle/SSA/Station. You can take help of some people in administration also. There is huge potential in this field if any one proposes to start a side business

In spite of all this Nashik SDE/JTOs are forced to work in other SSAs and cannot be relieved without being recouped from Nashik itself. It is better not to comment on posting of staff in mobile wing. Though justification is not available staff posted is more than sanctioned strength.           [ Sanctioned- 353 and posted 361.- For postings in Mobile justification is not required. ; In SSA sanctioned strength has no value. ]

GS Appeal on CHQ website: Our activists and base level members throughout the Country have to appreciate that huge funds are exhausted towards meeting legal expenses. Association is involved in large number of court cases to defend provisions of existing RRs to ensure smooth career growth of its members. In fact, at Chennai itself, Association is involved in a number of litigations as respondents and has engaged quality lawyers to defend the legitimate interests of its members. Besides, Association is involved in litigations in Hon Supreme Court, CAT Delhi, CAT Ernakulam, Ernakulam High Court etc. Huge and huge expenditure is being incurred on legal cases which are piling up. We have not filed any application to seek relief, we have only impleaded as respondents to defend ourselves, except in case of recruitment of MTs in CAT/ND where we challenged the eligibility restrictions imposed in terms of age and qualification for appearing in the examination for MTs.

In keeping with the decision of CWC Bhopal, Association have  purchased a three storeyed sturdy, three side open building on 24x48 ft. in posh colony of Ramesh Nagar. The new building that will be new home of our beloved Comrades is just about 50 meters from Ramesh Nagar and it takes about 25 minutes to reach Ramesh Nagar from New Delhi Railway station by metro. Our new home is full of quality wood work, tiles, stones and modern wash rooms. In the front, it has two beautiful parks. The total cost of the building is about Rs 3.0 crores and the entire payment is to be made by 15th May 2011.

April 1, 2011-CHQ News-

  • CMD/BSNL and DIR(HR)/BSNL had a meeting with Convenor/JAC and GSs of SNEA(I), BSNLEU and AIBSNLEA and discussed various initiatives taken by the Management during the last one month for improving the performance of BSNL. We appreciated the initiative of new CMD and DIR(HR) and shared our views.

  • The committee appointed by JAC, consisting of Convenor/JAC, GS/SNEA(I), GS/BSNLEU and  GS/AIBSNLEA  met today. The committee held serious discussions on how to involve the employees in improving the quality of services, redressal of customers’ grievances etc. The final suggestions of the committee will be submitted for the consideration of the JAC which will be held on 5th April, 2011.

  • Tenure transfer orders issued in the cadre of SDEs -- all the cases upto May, 2011 cleared.<<order>> Other request transfers are under consideration

  • CONGRATULATIONS TO ONE AND ALL: JTO to SDE Promotion order issued for 1861 JTOs.

    Another landmark achievement for the JTO cadre -- For the last seven to eight months, we are struggling to get this promotion order. BSNL prepared the SC/ST roster which took much more time than we expected and made the promotions based on the roster. There was some delay due to court cases also. Comrades,  Assn didn't update anything on our website regarding the progress of this DPC for the last few months as some court cases are going on at different CATs and there was a strong move to stop the promotions by some misguided people. Finally we could get the much delayed promotion orders for the vacancies upto the year 2008-09. The stay at Hon Chennai CAT in the case filed on behalf of AIGETOA was only for the vacancy year 2009-10 and on the second eligibility list (as their prayer was only for that).

    Our sincere gratitude to the CMD, former DIR(HR) Shri Gopal Das, DIR(HR), GM(Pers), Addl GM(Pers, AGM(Pers II) and the entire dedicated staff of Pers II section of BSNLCO.

    Assn tried to retain maximum promoted Executives in the same Circle itself. However, 127 JTOs in the list are posted to tenure Circles. Karnataka and HP Circle has excess candidates.

    CHQ express its gratitude to all the CSs, SSA/Branch Secs and other office bearers at all the levels for their tremendous support. Congratulations to all the JTOs who got promotion.

26-03-2011:- Pay scales of JTOs, SDEs and equivalent cadres: The Committee constituted to resolve the pay anomaly of JTOs of 2007 & 2008 batch as per the demand taken up by this Assn, called us for a meeting on 25.03.2011 at 10:30 Hrs. GS along with both AGSs held discussions with the committee. Chairman and other members Sr GM(Estt), Sr GM(SR), Sr GM(Pers), Sr GM(EF) were present. DGM(Estt), DGM(EF), AGM(SR) and AGM(P-IV) were also present.

 Committee suggested E1 + 5 increments for JTO cadre and E2 scale for SDE cadre. Committee also suggested that the demand for “First Time Bound Promotion after 4 years” also will be met by this proposal. It is also learned that some are agreeable for this proposal. The proposal of E1+5 increment and E2 scale was totally rejected by the Assn on 03.03.2011 itself and decided to continue with the agitation programme. Later based on the assurance of the Chairman and Sr GM(SR) to reconsider their proposal, Assn deferred the Dharna on 04.03.2011.

 Assn pointed out that lowering the pay scale of SDE to E2 and giving TBP after 4 years was not our demand.

 By this even after getting TBP in 4 years, a JTO will not reach the minimum of E2A scale (Rs. 22500). Similarly a JTO will not reach the minimum of proposed E3 scale (Rs 24900) even after 8 years. (How this proposal will be acceptable)

 Chairman asked our proposal to solve the issue. GS explained how JTO cadre has been recognised by premier agencies like IIM/Banglore, National Productivity Council during IVth and Vth CPC period etc. The JTO cadre has been continuously uplifted in 1987, 1996 and in 2003. It is unfortunate that BSNL is not recognising this cadre and demoralising it by lowering the pay scales. These young JTO/JAOs, SDEs/AOs has to be motivated and that is the need of the hour. Demoralising them by demotion at the entry level itself will be disastrous for the company.

 Assn proposed standard pay scales of E2, E3, E4, E5, E6 and E7 for JTO, SDE, Sr SDE, DE, DGM, SGJAG and equivalent cadres.

Committee opined that this will have huge financial implications especially in terms of pension contribution to DOT. The change of scales above E3 may not give any benefit to the employees also.  

Assn made a compromise for the upliftment of the cadre and suggested that the change of scales from E3 to E4 onwards can be considered after the pension contribution issue is resolved and now the proposal of giving E2 and E3 pay scales for JTOs, SDEs and equivalent cadres may be considered.  

Comrades, we had shown the same spirit in 1987 when pay scales revised to 1640-60-2900. Thousands of our senior comrades faced pay loss and recovery when their pay reduced from Rs 1720/ to Rs 1700/ on revision of pay scales. But all of them unitedly fought for the cadre. We should also unitedly fight with the same spirit again for the upliftment of the JTO cadre.

 Finally, Committee agreed to work out the financial implications on giving E2, E3 pay scales for JTOs, SDEs etc.

 For the first time, BSNL Management/Committee agreed to consider the proposal of E2, E3 scales for JTOs and SDEs etc.

 For achieving this goal, Assn requires wholehearted support from all the Executives --- seniors as well as juniors.

 We should not allow the demotion of the cadres at any cost.   GS letter to the Chairman of the Committee <<proposal>>

Whereas, EB, Pune took untiring efforts to get this plan sanctioned, approved and popularize, whereas the mobile wing, in minutes withdraw the plan from the portal, keeping all the nodal officers and 25000 customers helpless. All those customers who applied for the post paid connections before the issue of the closing orders is still not created by mobile wing at the backend. Just to promote their hidden agenda of supporting the private operators, the mess has been silently created to destroy the image of BSNL with the Dept of Agriculture and the customers, a complete non- cooperation is seen from the mobile wing. SNEA (I) will not tolerate such approach and vows to expose all such corrupt nexus.
