13 JUL 19:   AGM Staff Mumbai issued orders for allotment of additional responsibilities of HR Admn, EB, Sales and marketing , Project Vijay CM etc.   Letter   <<<>>>

·        This will be additional work along with the present works being carried out by these SDEs in respective SSAs.

·        The impact of this decision cannot be access at this stage, but it is required that certain strategy needs to be finalized for utilization of manpower in proper way.

·        Here these SDEs will have to carry the works as additional works to their existing responsibilities and there may be problems on parts of concerned SDEs to take this additional workload accordingly.

·        This decision is taken by new CGMT MH in view of reduction of workload of SDEs in Civil wing and some of SDEs are now given responsibilities of HR Admn & EB as per directives in this order.

·        It was quite possible and acceptable idea if these names were conveyed to the SSA Heads for giving additional responsibility as per local requirement without specific directions for posting them in HR Admn sections by Circle office.

·        We have seen that executives from Civil and Electrical wing have proved their excellence while working in sections like EB, Land and Building, Building Mtce,   Vigilance etc and we have seen certain issues while these highly technically officers are posted to routine sections like HR Admn.

·        There are also excess and underutilized executives in Account wing, Electrical wing, Architecture wing, Hindi Wing wherein not all but many of the officers have works less than the justification and their services also can be better utilized in the similar manner as being done for Civil wing in mass. It is also seen that many of the executives in telecom wing do not have justified workload and certain executives are overloaded with the works and there is need to have review of such workload for efficient working and no one should enjoy salary without justified work.   

·        SNEA MH has discussed this issue with Shri. M. K. Mishra CGMT MH about mass changes in working of HR Admn in all SSAs and its impact on working wherein he has clarified that though Circle Office has issued orders for HR Admn Mumbai there is no compulsions on SSA Heads to handover the work of HR Admn. He added that the SSA Heads are empowered to take decision on basis of local requirement and they are free to give responsibility of works in any other sections like EB, Land & Bldg, Mtce of Bldg, CSCs etc as per local requirement.

·        SNEA MH appreciates this decision with hopes that required changes as per the request of concerned SDEs in Civil wing as well as other SDEs in telecom wing will be taken care and the SDEs spare 

·        Let us hope this decision in implemented in consultation with all by understanding difficulties and taken corrective actions without much trouble to concerned Executives. Also, this additional workload idea should not be limited only to Civil wing and it is implemented for all executives in all wings including Telecom wing.

·        As per letter till 15 GMs/DGMs are not yet relieved by concerned Circle, even though Personal Cell has issued transfer orders long back.

·        It is good that there is nothing said about ERP relieving of DGMs/GMs in mass as seen case of SDEs/DEs which has become normal practice in BSNL for relieving of officers as many of the Circles and SSAs do not respect orders issued by Personal Cell.

·        Let us hope force ERP relieving is not applied at least in case of DGMs/GMs. 


10 JUL 19:  Welcome  meeting with Shri.  M. K. Mishra, CGMT MH Circle by SNEA Nashik while on Nashik tour: {Report by Com. M. B. Sangle, DS SNEA Nashik}: Shri. M. K. Mishra, CGMT MH Circle, and Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR/Admn Mumbai were on tour of Nashik on the occasion for CWC Meeting of NFTE at Nashik on 7/7/2019. By taking this opportunity delegation of  SNEA Nashik  led by Com. M. B.

Aman Jaiswal, GM HR/Admn Mumbai with beautiful flowers and ‘PEN’ and conveyed our best wishes to CGMT on his promotion and posting as CGMT MH Circle.

·        We have discussed present crisis on all front in BSNL and elaborated most of the field issues faced by executives like Disconnection of MSEDCL supply of telecom installations due to outstanding dues, non-availability of funds for diesel purchase, Long pending payments to contract labors / EOI labors, Pendency of rent payment to owner of rented premises, Pendency of payment of hired vehicle vendors, Payment of TIPs etc.

·        Also, it is brought to information of CGMT MH that executives have not been paid Temporary advances since last six months even they have incurred expenditure for purchase of diesel, office expenses, and other maintenance activities. We have given some suggestions like closure of loss making Exchanges or finalization of modalities to outsource maintenance of these exchanges if possible and curtailment of expenditure on loss making work etc.        

·        CGMT has responded with positive gesture on these issues and explained the need to increase our product sale so that we can earn more handsome revenue as there is no any alternative to overcome this present situation immediately.

·        We have requested and urged him to address the issue of SNEA MH with Circle management and particularly amicable resolution about transfer case of Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH. The CGMT MH asked where have you discussed this issue with competent authority previously. We told that we have discussed this issue with Shri. Peeyush Khare then CGMT MH, but could not arrive at amicable solution till today. Then CGMT MH has advised us have a discussion on this issue separately and directed DS SNEA Nashik that he may come to Circle Office Mumbai for further discussions on this issue.

·        In conclusion, of the meeting, we have congratulated him and conveyed best wishes for grand success as new CGMT MH Circle, and assured him for best possible support from SNEA to him for growth and development related issues of BSNL.

10 JUL 19:   CAO FC Mumbai calls for willingness from seven CAOs working at Different SSAs for posting as DGM under looking after arrangements for filling vacant post of IFAs in Business areas  Letter   <<<>>>

·        There are seven vacancies of IFAs in Business Area i.e. Amravati, Chandrapur, Jalgaon, Kolhapur, Nanded, Satara and Circle Office and willingness is called from seven officers by name and it is also mentioned that all these transfers will be at Own cost.

·        From contents of letter, it seems that submission of willingness by these seven CAOs is compulsory it is clearly mentioned in letter that these CAOs must submit willingness for posting as IFAs at above places to CAO FC Mumbai by email on latest by 15/07/2019.

·        These compulsions are being created under look after arrangements when there are clear-cut and latest guidelines issued by BSNL Corporate office that the vacancies under looking after arrangements are to be filled locally and no one should be compelled for accepting Looking After arrangements.

·        Let us hope these CAOs are also not being compelled by CAO FC Mumbai to submit own cost willingness for filling IFA post with change of location and willingness are called for filling up vacant post without any transfers that to be at own cost and if no sufficient willingness are received the left out vacant post will be filled in with local looking after arrangements.


10 JUL 19:   AGM Staff Mumbai calls for willingness to fill up two vacant posts of DEs in Osmanabad SSA.   Letter   <<<>>>

·        This posting will be at Own Cost and not in the Interest of service.

·        It is good initiative that such willingness are called for filling up vacant post at Non-popular Station Osmanabad SSA.

·        As per criteria fixed for this willingness, the DEs in the top 25 position of Circle Long stay list, under transfer to any other Circle /SSA, at verge of retirement and not applied for VRS are not eligible for posting in Osmanabad SSA.

·        Now it is understanding of AGM Staff Mumbai that DE applying for VRS may opt for Osmanabad SSA that to be at Own Cost and hence such officers are restricted to opt for Osmanabad SSA. 

·        Also when willingness are called to fill up vacant post at Non Popular Station, what will be wrong of DE in long stay list with top 25 position is submitting willingness for posting to Osmanabad SSA, but here AGM Staff Mumbai has received orders from competent authority to do so, he has done it without applying mind.

·        From letter it appears that AGM Staff Mumbai is not promoting for opting for non-popular station Osmanabad SSA that to be at Own cost but rather this letter is restricting the officers to submit willingness for posting to Osmanabad SSA.

·        Or it seems that someone has already given willingness and official formality is being completed by issuing such letter so that others do not opt for Osmanabad SSA, but chances of such possibility is less as in normal course everybody avoids posting to such non-popular stations.

·        Let us hope that AGM Staff Mumbai get such willingness even with such stringent restrictions including the own cost transfer and both the vacant post of DEs in Osmanabad SSA are filled up as proposed by AGM Staff Mumbai.

10 JUL 19:   AGM Staff Mumbai issued orders for fresh looking after arrangements for GM BP/IT Mumbai.   Letter   <<<>>>

·        As per this Looking After order, the charge of this BP/IT Section which is with to Shri. Rajeev Soni CEE Mumbai as given by then CGMT MH is now withdrawn and given to Mrs. Ayeshaa Siddiqui, GM EB Mumbai and the charge GM EB Mumbai is given to Mrs. Charu Sharma GM EB Platinum as additional charge.

·        Though, it is written as Shri. Rajeev Soni is redignated as CEE Mumbai, it may be spelling mistake and it should have been written as  designated as Sr CEE Mumbai


 10 JUL 19:   AGM Estt Mumbai endorsed BSNL CO letter for implementation of supreme court Judgment on recovery of excess/wrongful payments by ensuring 100% error free pay fixation method and post audit of Pay fixation.    Letter   <<<>>>


 10 JUL 19:  DGM Pers SM BSNL CO issued orders for posting of DEs to Bihar Circle wherein DEs from UP East , Odisha and MH Circle are posted to Bihar Circle.      Letter <<<>>>    

·        It is understood that these DEs are posted to Bihar Circle for filling vacant post of SSA Heads in Bihar Circle. Basically, there are vacancies of nine DGMs but 15 DEs are posted and all these DEs are from the longest stay list of these three Circles.

·        These DEs may be longest stayed officers but not senior most for posting as SSA Head and once DGM regular Promotion order is issued, they will be again reverted as DEs and very purpose of their transfer to Bihar Circle will be defeated.

·        As per the recent directives issued by BSNL CO, the stay of the executives working in territory of recruiting Circle is counted combinely and hence in MH Circle the DEs with longest stay from WTR, WTP, ITPC, BBNW and Inspection Circle are added.

·        This order is issued in the Interest of service and it is for fixed period of two years and some of these DEs have requested for posting to all India hard tenure Stations but now posted to Bihar Circle.

·        Such orders from specific Circles has already created problems for Maharashtra Circle as once officers are posted to these Circle then it becomes chain as further officers required as substitute are posted from same Circle.

·        Already there is biggest chain of SDEs/DEs from MH Circle for posting to J&K, NE I& II Circles and many of SDEs/DEs are being transferred only from MH Circle a substitute to executive asking request to MH Circle after completion of Tenure. Same will happen in case of Bihar Circle new chain of transfers from MH to Bihar and vice versa.

·        Such vacancies if any should be filled up by calling options and there are chances that many young DEs may opt for it, but BSNL CO has again targeted Circles like Maharashtra, which are already sufferer.

·        SNEA MH has already taken up matter for review of this order and let us hope that creation of one more chain of transfers from Maharashtra Circle will be stopped before it is started. 


9 JUL 19:  CGMT MH Circle writes to SSA/BA Heads on prioritization of all existing BTS in Five categories and to give topmost priority to BTS in Category I should not be down for more than three hours.    Letter   <<<>>>

·        This out of box initiative by Shri. M. K. Mishra, new CGMT MH Circle is highly appreciable and need of time to face present critical condition in Telecom Market.

·        It will ensure that BTS earning more Revenue will be given priority treatment in Operation and Maintenance of BTS with high revenue and also the Electricity bills of all such priority BTS will be paid in time by the CEC Elect Mumbai and GM Fin Mumbai.       


 9 JUL 19:  CGMT MH Circle writes to SSA/BA Heads and IFAs on deficit in revenue collections and increase in outstanding balances with customers to the tune of about Rs 796 Crores.    Letter I  <<<>>>     Letter II  <<<>>>   


 9 JUL 19:  DGM FC Mumbai writes to all IFAs in Maharashtra Circle for maintaining daily Diary by the Account wing Officers in Maharashtra Circle and IFAs are directed to monitor it very scrupulously.   Letter <<<>>>    

·        The letters states that maintain daily diary will be helpful to face the changes in view of revival of BSNL being under consideration of Government of India.

·        Letter also states that this diary will be helpful for the new incumbent to know the procedures that we are following, the things we are monitoring on daily basis and its periodical observations, analysis etc.

·        The proposal of revival of BSNL is not yet decided by Government of India and daily different rumors are being spread on social media and many of the print/ digital media reporters are giving different news and such letters from BSNL itself creates more confusion as nothing is mentioned about new incumbent.

·        There is neither specific mention in this letter about the new incumbent nor it is mentioned about who is new incumbent i.e. within BSNL or outside BSNL. 

·        It should have been better if it would have been confirmed by DGM FC Mumbai that new incumbent is BSNL’s newly recruited Officers, BSNLs existing officers from other units, it is outsiders who will replace BSNL present officers, or any other company is going to take over BSNL as new incumbent.

·        As nothing is mentioned in letter, it has created more doubts and confusion in minds of the many executives.

·        It is more confusing that only Finance wing officers in Maharashtra Circle are directed to maintain the daily diary and IFAs have to monitor it very scrupulously but Finance wing officers in other Circles or officers from other wings of Maharashtra Circle have no any such compulsions in maintaining daily Diary.

·        It seems that only Finance wing officers in Maharashtra circle will be replaced by new incumbent and not any other officer from any wing in MH Circle or Finance wing all over India will have to face new incumbent.

·        Also , BSNL CO has already issued guidelines about the outdated procedure of maintaining daily Diary and also diaries are not supplied by BSNL during this year due to financial condition of BSNL and hence one has to either maintain digital Diary or purchase own diary for office works.

·        Also, it is not mentioned why such Diary is required only by Finance wing officers and not by officers from any other wing where more technical details needs to passed on in case of any incumbency.

·        SNEA MH will take updates on this issue of maintaining daily diary only by Finance Wing Officers in Maharashtra Circle creating confusion and doubts from concerned officers and will update all accordingly.

9 JUL 19:  AGM Pers-I  BSNL CO issued orders for force ERP relieving of 15 DEs under transfer as per their own cost and request as these officers were not relieved by concerned Circles even after their orders issued long back.   Letter <<<>>>    

·        It is really painful to see the pathetic condition of Personal Cell BSNL Corporate office, that the orders issued by it are not respected by the concerned Circle and even by units in BSNL Corporate Office.

·        Under such poor response and condition thereof, the Personal cell is using tool of ERP relieving without taking any action on such irresponsible officers responsible for implementation of request transfers and it has created mesh in the BSNL.

·        Till action is taken against such erring officers not following orders of Personal Cell, the process of implementation of transfer orders will not be smooth.

·        Otherwise, it will be better if Personnel Cell mentioned in transfer order itself by giving fixed period of about one or two month for implementation of transfer order, that officer not relieved by that particular date stands relieved from ERP and responsibility will fixed on concerned officers.

He elaborated how Shri. Peeyush Khare gives lectures for hours together suggesting for various austerity measures but when it is his turn to reduce expenses, he never thought of it. Rather he is one of CGMT who has spent and spending lakhs of rupees on lavish stay in hotels, misuse of BSNL Money and Property for personal use etc and this is not the way to lead from front in such critical financial condition of BSNL. He added that BSNL is spending huge money on the name of different AMCs and outsourcing by different tenders. He informed that if the employees of BSNL itself workout the responsibilities then those expenses will be less than half, but only discussions are done and actions of curtailment are taken for centralized tendering procedures and giving benefits to selected vendors centrally. He updated house on different discussions in social , print and digital media about the financial position of BSNL, position of BSNL in today’s Telecom Market, applicability of VRS for BSNL employees and staff, reduction of superannuation age for BSNL staff and  officers, Status of Standard pays Scale and issues thereof, Status of different promotions in BSNL and court cases thereof, third Pay Revision for BSNL Staff and Officers, financial position of BSNL, the support of Government to BSNL in changed political scenarios, changes in the Board of Directors of BSNL including CMD BSNL and its impact on functioning of BSNL  and so on. In his informative and impressive speech, he touched about all burning issues being discussed in the media and cleared the doubts in the minds of the audience. He appealed all comrades to come out of this negative phase even though it is toughest time in front of us and sustain the unethical market pressure created by R Jio. He was optimistic that sooner the present unethical competition in Telecom Sector will be over and BSNL will again stand up at its position and will continue to provide best services to Indian public. He appealed all to rise for the occasion and give their best to BSNL. In conclusion, of his address, he conveyed thanks to organizers for arranging such grand and beautiful meeting and emerging as strongest branch of SNEA.

We shared our moments of pride and happiness with him for his selection on such important post of BSNL Board. Everybody in delegation personally greeted and congratulated Shri. Arvind Vadnerkarji and conveyed him best wishes for grand success in new assignment of Director HR BSNL Board.

In the reciprocation, Shri. Arvind Vadnerkarji conveyed thanks to all for their wishes & greetings and shared happy moments with the delegation. He expressed happiness to see the delegation of SNEA with such young executives, which is future of BSNL.

Shri. Arvind Vadnerkarji who has started his carrier from Pune and has also received prestigious Vishishta Snachar Seva Padak Award from Pune as a DGM, has mature experience as GM Mobile Pune, GM HR Pune, BA Head Aurangabad, and now successfully handling responsibility of PGMT Pune, was very enthusiastic and optimistic about the future of BSNL in Telecom Sector and future of executives in BSNL. He has devoted his selfless and honest services in the various fields of Transmission and Mobile during expansion period with great achievement and leadership. During discussions, we have seen his vast experience, update knowledge on different issues of BSNL /Telecom sector and concern about field working and practical difficulties and we strongly feel that with such grand experience and positive approach, he will be helpful and instrumental in resolving pending HR issues of executives.

During overall discussions, he was very optimistic on the future of BSNL and enthusiastically shared his views with delegation on different issues. The details of discussions on important points are as follows.

·        Future of BSNL in today’s scenario: He categorically shared that though there is lot of uncertainty and different news are being spread on social media about existence of BSNL and its workforce, there are firm discussions going on at level of DoT and Government of India for revival of BSNL. He informed that matter is under active consideration of different departments of Government of India viz. DoT, DPE, Finance and views and comments are being asked from BSNL on different proposals. There is much need of Telecom services in India and hence BSNL is having bright future. Certain changes will take place at top level for survival of Telecom Sector and definitely it will be supporting to survival of BSNL.

·        Proposals for Revival of BSNL: He added that in days to come the final shape would be given different proposals for revival of BSNL including VRS for employees above 50 years of age, monetization of assets of BSNL, revival of BSNL by separate but subsidiary Infrastructure/Tower Company of BSNL and so on. He shared his views and assessment about the action being taken by BSNL Board, DoT, DPE, Dept. of Finance and Government of India.

·        Monetization of BSNL Assets: He mentioned that monetization of assets is good approach and can be best option for revival of BSNL, but it will take much more time to compete the time consuming procedures and also such monetization needs the change of use of land, which may have to get concurrence from concerned Government Authorities. But it is must activity in days to come as it will generate maximum funds which can be used for revival of BSNL.

·        Monetization of OFC Network and revenue generation thereof: He added that BSNL has huge OFC network of about 6000 Kms and about 2000 Kms may be damaged or may not be in use with all fibers active. But about 4000 Kms of OFC is active and practically in use by BSNL. The value of this asset calculated at rate of Rs. 10 Lakh per Km, then total value of OFC asset of BSNL, will be about 40000 Corers and if it is actively monetized by its optimum utilization , then it will generate good revenue for BSNL. There is huge demand of lease circuits, broadband services, FTTH connections and hence monetization of OFC in commercial way will definitely give new energy to BSNL.

·        Subsidiary Tower Company of BSNL: He also shared that BSNL has about 65000 towers all over India and if value of each tower is taken as 10 lakhs per tower, then the asset value of the subsidiary company of will be about 65000 Corers. This subsidiary company will get Tax benefits as well as it will have good opportunity to generate revenue by sharing towers. Further, there is idea of generation of money from Market through bonds/shares by disinvestment and good amount will be generated and same amount can be used for revival of BSNL. He appeals that Unions and Associations will have to come forward and join hands with such proposals and should not oppose it has done in past. We have brought to his notice that earlier efforts were made for formation of separate Tower Company and even new CMD who was senor in rank to CMD BSNL was appointed making clear that there will be vertical split in BSNL and in days to come BSNL will have to be at the mercy of this separate tower company. He replied that there may not be separate tower company and this tower company will be subsidiary tower company of BSNL and hence there should not be any fear about vertical spilt of BSNL He added that about all private operators have separate companies for infrastructure and operations and companies like R Jio has different and separate companies for Telecom business and getting benefits thereof and BSNL also can also get benefits similar manner.

·        Generation of Money by BSNL Bonds: It is also proposed that money will be generated through BSNL Bonds in market and Government of India will assure for reimbursement of payments to bond holders in case BSNL fails to pay the maturity amount of bonds. Thus, Government will not be giving money directly, but active support will be given to BSNL and MTNL being state owned PSUs.

·        Reduction of superannuation retirement age to 58 years: He added that though the matter of reduction of age and VRS for BSNL workforce is aggressively discussed on social media, but chances of reduction of age to 58 are less due to certain limitations on its implementation. There are some administrative issues as well good number of workforce is retiring in days to come and hence reduction of superannuation age may not be implemented in BSNL.

·        VRS for BSNL workforce with age of 50 and above years: He informed that though chances of reduction of superannuation age are less, VRS is under very active consideration of Government of India and certain queries raised on applicability of retirement benefits under Gujarat pattern for DoT recruited and BSNL absorbed staff and officers have been replied by BSNL satisfactorily. The money generated through BSNL Bonds will be used for VRS and nothing will be invested by DoT or BSNL for VRS. About 1.2 lakhs employees will be eligible for VRS and it is expected that about 50% will opt for VRS and thus the existing workforce of BSNL will be reduced by about 55000 employees/officers through this proposed VRS. After that the salary burden on BSNL will be reduced to better extent and BSNL can focus on other development issues. Further VRS is optional and one, who does not want VRS, should not opt it, and let willing persons opt it. He appealed that Unions and Associations will have to review their stand and support such revival plans and mainly should not oppose the VRS. We have shared that SNEA has neither opposed VRS nor supported VRS. Rather many of our members are in favor of VRS as it is optional and one is free to decide where to opt for VRS or not to opt for VRS. In response he informed that the proposal of VRS is under very active consideration and if everything goes in positive directions most probably VRS may open by August 2019 and it will be open for period of three months, where in one can decide on opting for VRS. It is expected by DoT with attractive VRS about 55000 will opt for VRS and major amount of burdon on salary by BSNL will be reduced to better extent.

·        Reduction of expenditure by BSNL: Shri. Vadnerkar informed that though many steps are taken for reduction of expenditure, till the situations not under control and other side it is becoming most difficult to run the functioning of SSAs as it is directly affecting to the operations of BSNL services. BSNL is issuing orders after orders and today order has been issued for 50% reduction of vehicles. The curtailment of unwanted expenditure is must but BSNL has to think on operation and maintenance of services and further curtailment cannot be afforded as it has already affected our services.

·        Unwanted Procurements: During discussions Vadnerkar  narrated that BSNL is going through heavy losses and one of the main reason being unwanted procurement of equipment’s and material without understanding its requirement in the filed units and its use in BSNL. He informed that many items are purchased by BSNL Corporate Office and some other units, but same are not useful in the field units and are not beneficial to customers hence there is need to stop such unwanted procurement in BSNL.

·        FTTH & Overhead OFC: DS SNEA ITPC Pune pointed out that BSNL is providing FTTH connections through overhead OFC and same has been cut by some local authorities as happened in Bangalore and suggested that BSNL should provide connections by laying OFC and avoid overhead OFC which is temporary work. In response Vadnerkar appreciated concern expressed about overhead OFC, but narrated that there are certain issues in laying OFC economically and major reason s heavy charges applied by local authorities. It is difficult to pay such heavy reinstatements charges to economic constraints and cemented roads. Now a day’s everywhere including remote cement roads are being constructed and no space is kept for laying cables. Non availability of space at many such locations having high demand of FTTH creates compulsions on BSNL to lay Overhead OFC. About all private Cable and Telecom operators are providing connections by overhead OFC only and few like R-Jio are laying OFC that to be at prominent places of demand and not everywhere. We also narrated that there is need on part of BSNL that matter is taken with Government of India for permanent arrangement of Cable duct on each and every road on both the side or at least at one side by crossing at certain frequent intervals and duct through central divers on national and Express highways so that Assets of telecom sector and BSNL are safeguarded and there is no disruption of services due to cable cut or non-availability of cables. He agreed to the suggestions and informed that wherever possible BSNL should lay underground OFC and avoid temporary works by Overhead OFC and duct arrangements on every road also needs to be taken care.

·        Implementation of CPSUCH in BSNL: We brought to his notice about delay in approval of CPSUCH and hurdles thereof. If the CPSUCH was approved at right time there would not have been issue of delayed promotions and court cases. But due to defect in structure of CPSUCH and double stand of management, the CPSUCH has been kept aside unofficially. Over the last two years BSNL is going neither ahead with promotions nor going ahead with CPSUCH and uncertainty continues for no sold reason. We brought to his notice that CPSUCH has been developed up to AGM level. For DGM and above level officers with just change of designation and same was required to be followed for Time Bound promotions up to DGM level. But unfortunately there are certain conditions on eligibility of promotions under CPSUCH and hence there is much reluctance on part of many executives in accepting the CPSUCH and management is also not going ahead. It would be better if CPSUCH is implemented in the manner as implemented to DGM and above officers by change of designations in time bound manner. Shri. Vadnerkar gave patience hearing to our suggestions and assured that whatever best and in the interest of executives will be taken care at appropriate time and there is nothing wrong in implementation of CPSUCH with change of designation up to DGM level also. .

·        Uniform applicably of first Time Bound Promotions to all executives in BSNL: CP SNEA MH brought to his notice the biased approach of BSNL in giving first Time Bound promotion with different eligibly years. He narrated that seniors and even juniors have been given First Time Bound promotion in four years and certain executives recruited near about year 1993-94 are given first TBP after completion 7-8 years and this is direct discrimination by BSNL management and it has continued mass unrest amongst the affected executives. There are certain directions issued by different courts for uniform implementations of First TBP uniformly for all and it is wrongly threatened that if we press hard then it will be changed from present four years to more for the executives who have been benefitted with four years. He also narrated that there is negligible financial implication in implementation of first promotion in four years uniformly for all and only required is someone has to look into these graveness seriously. Shri. Vadnerkar assured us to look into these issues.

·        Settlement of Standard Pay Scales: We have narrated him the hardships faced by the young JTOs and JAOs due to non-grant Standard Pay Scales for JTOs/JAOs and SDEs/AOs throughout India. We have updated him about the entire procedure and steps followed by BSNL, DoT and DPE and how last letter from DPE also has not resolved this burning issue. We have drawn his attention that this is matter of just few crore rupees and non-approval of Standard Pay Scales is one of the reasons for mass unrest among the backbone of BSNL. We requested him to give priority to this issue on his joining to BSNL Board, so that further recurring pay loss to all these JAOs/JTOs, AOs/SDEs is given full stop and uniformity is brought among the same cadre executives which are need of time. He has taken feedback from us and assured to do best possible after assessment of the situation at BSNL CO and status of the case.

·        30 % SAB (Super Annuation Benefits) for BSNL recruited Executives: We narrated how BSNL recruited JTOs are waiting for approval of 30 % SAB , how it has been delayed over last four five years even after firm assurances by then Director HR and CMD BSNL to approve further 6% SAB. We informed him that SAB is also one of the important and burning HR issues of executives recruited by BSNL and need his kind attention to resolve it at the earliest.

·        Promotions in BSNL: When we have drawn his attention towards pending promotions, he informed that he is aware about the issue and many of the promotions are challenged in Court and hence matter is not moving further even though thousands of post of SDEs are vacant, hundreds of post of DGMs are vacant and many of the executives are retiring waiting for their promotions. We brought to his notice that many court cases are not handled by BSNL to the required strength and depth and when BSNL has hundreds of Officers in Legal cell all over India and hundreds of advocates are empaneled by BSNL, the cases related to Promotions are not give due care. In Maharashtra Circle, Caveat were filed even on request transfers, but Legal Cell BSNL CO s not able to file caveat on such important Issues and promotions are kept pending on name of court cases. He specifically referred to court case on SDE promotions in Ernakulum Court and how CMD BSNL has been directed to be present personally in Court. We informed that if BSNL would have taken steps for filling all vacant post of SDEs during last spell of promotions, there would not have been any issue, but unfortunately BSNL has issued partial promotion orders keeping certain post vacant and hence we have facing present dilemma . We have also narrated issue of promotions in DE cadre and how mesh has been created by BSNL Corporate office by issuing excess promotions and how juniors are promoted while seniors are compelled to work under such juniors. He has listened our views on hurdles in promotions by court cases and lethargic steps and stand taken by BSNL Legal Cell is dealing all such cases, provoking more and more executives to go for court case. We stressed that there is need of keeping keen watch on progress of court cases and options like promotions subject to outcome of court case, promotions to the cadres where no court cases pending needs to be cleared and immediate Acton is required to fill up all vacant post.

·        Other pending issues of Executives in BSNL: Delegation also drawn attention on other pending HRs issues like DE promotion for SDEs from list 8 and 9, DE to DGM promotions and manmade hurdles thereof, criteria for posting on DGM Adhoc/regular promotions, 3rd Pay revision to BSNL workforce etc. and updated him reasons for pendency and requested to look into it.

·        Difficulties faced by Executives due to non-releasing of different payments: We also have detail discussions on nonpayment of bills by different vendors , contractors, electricity payments, rents and its impact on working of BSNL and how difficulties are being faced by the executives n BSNL. PGMT Pune informed that he is well aware about all such issues and he is facing all these at par with others. He mentioned that as on today, there is no immediate solutions for releasing payments but with clearance of outstanding amount from different units including DoT, and certain support from Government to BSNL, there will be much improvement in the financial conditions and till time we have to manage show with available resources in the best possible way by using personal relations and skills. 

·        Counting of stay of executives for transfers from Pune City to Pune Rural including Mobile Pune and need of Equal Treatment to all executives: DS SNEA Pune requested PGMT Pune to have review of transfer orders issued by his office from Pune City to Rural and vice versa by excluding executives from Mobile wing as same has created much unrest among the executives in Pune SSA and posting of some of executives directly to Pune Mobile by cancelling transfer orders issued for Pune TD and created more panic among the affected executives. We also informed that though it has been informed by Pune administration that there are guidelines issued by Circle Office Mumbai for excluding officers from Pune Mobile, we have seen no such guidelines and neither given by administration after giving 03 reminders. Also since last six months officers in Pune administration advocating for such letter, could not produce the copy of letter. We informed that rather there are clear cut guidelines to count stay of all executives in that particular SSA for rural transfers there is no exception other than critical medical ground cases. We made it clear that we have no objection for excluding officers from Mobile in rural transfers but it should be applicable equally for all and not only for Pune SSA. Rather SNEA Pune advocates for making Pune Mobile as separate SSA for transfers and posting so that request from Pune TD are given consideration to Pune Mobile. With such separate SSA status to Pune Mobile for request transfers, the executives requesting for Pune can directly opt for Pune Mobile and in case substitute is to be posted in such transfers, it should be from Pune Mobile only. Thus practically there will be no request for Pune TD as on such transfers to TD officers are posted to rural area and no one is willing for posting to Rural area and hence will not opt for Pune TD. Thus except Tenure transfers, no officer from Pune TD will be transferred and substitute will be posted always from Pune Mobile. Now in case of request to Pune, officers are posted to Pune Mobile and substitutes are posted from Pune TD. Also Circle Office clearly mentioned in all its letters that no request will accepted specifically only for Mobile and it is look out of concerned SSA Head to post officers to Mobile in consultation with concerned in charge of Mobile wing of that SSA or GM/PGM Mobile Pune/Nagpur. But this year many officers posted to Pune TD have managed to get change of posting to Pune Mobile from Circle office and Circle office also has violated its own guidelines and orders are issued. When these officers were posted to Pune TD, it was too early by Pune administration to post these officers to rural before their joining in Pune and accordingly certain officers started lobbing at Circle Office Mumbai and successfully managed in getting posting to Pune Mobile by cancelling their orders to Pune TD. It was required on part of Pune Administration that orders should have been issued after joining of officer’s in Pune TD and not before joining only on basis of orders issued by Circle office. Also care needs to be taken that information from Pune administration is not leaked before orders are issued and officially published on intranet. We quoted classic examples of such managed transfers and pain expressed by others who are compelled to work in Rural area of Pune TD. We have no issue in such direct transfers to Mobile also but such options should be open equally for all and there should not be any scope for managing transfers only by few and selected officers approaching to circle office Mumbai and managing certain officer for getting posting to Pune Mobile by cancelling transfers to Pune TD. In other SSAs, the officers in Mobile wing are considered for transfer to Rural area, but in Pune such names are excluded and orders are issued and now pressure is being created for relieving of officers under transfer. Pune administration has asked for queries in Dec 18 and matter was neither taken notice by Circle office nor was reminder issued by Pune Administration. SNEA Pune has given all relevant scopes to Administration but same are not processed in file and in recent past one reminder request has been sent to Circle office Mumbai for issuing clarification. This reminder request is processed in file and the clarification is expected from Circle Office Mumbai very shortly. In view of above we requested to keep on hold the rural transfer and may be implemented if clarification is issued for excluding the executives from Pune Mobile for Pune Rural transfers and may be revised suitably if clarification is issued for inclusion of executives in Pune Mobile for Pune Rural Transfers. We only demanded that whatever criteria are adopted should be equally applied to all the executives and to all the SSAs and there should not be any exclusion only for specific person or SSA except medical cases defined in transfer policy. In response PGMT Pune informed that he has no issue and Circle Office should give clarification so that his Office can act accordingly. He expressed dis-satisfaction over the approach of Circle office in posting to Mobile unit and added that it is surprising to him that once officers are posted to Pune TD are transferred to Pune Mobile without knowledge of SSA Head. His office is bound as per orders issued by Circle Office Mumbai and there is no reluctance on his part to include the officers in Mobile wing for Rural transfers rather he feels that Circle office should issue clear guidelines so that same can be implemented. He appreciated our concern for equal treatment to all executives even by treating Pune Mobile as separate SSA for transfers which will clear present uncertainty and will give full stop to pick and choose transfers to Mobile. Finally he directed us to pursue for early clarification from circle Office and assured that till time the transfer orders issued for Pune Rural excluding executives from Pune Mobile will be kept on hold.

·        Pick and choose transfers by BSNL CO to ITPC Pune: During discussions Shri. Vadnerkar informed that when we are discussing about uniform application of transfer policy and stay some of the executives are able to manage the transfers from BSNL Corporate Office. One of lady from Pune TD was transferred to Pune Rural and she has requested for retention at Pune on grounds of her children important education year of education and he has given sympathetic consideration till April 19 and all of sudden her transfer is issued to ITPC Pune. He was shocked to know this, when we are giving consideration to certain period, it is used for managing transfers is not good. If everybody manages transfers in this way, then who will work in rural area. We also shared similar feelings with classic example and informed that SNEA never supported such transfers and we have been at the forefront for cancellation of such biased transfers. Rather many comrades are demanding for considering stay of the executives in ITPC, BBNW, Inspection, RCNGN and WTR & WTP Circles in Pune City for transfers to Rural area as well as long stay transfers within Maharashtra Circle. In recent past some transfers are issued to avoid the long stay transfer out of Pune City and this gives wrong signal to common executives that anyone who can manage the show and others who are unable to manage have to go for long stay transfers at unpopular stations is not correct. SNEA MH will also once again take up all such cases of biased approach and managed by hooks and crooks and see that equal treatment is given to all. Finally, PGMT Pune informed that he has decided that he will refer the case to BSNL CO through MH Circle and get it cancelled. We expressed that all such pick and choose transfers going on in mass at BSNL CO should be given full stop and requested him to look into such transfers once he takes over as Director HR.

·        Action of MH Circle of withholding salary of executives due to conflict of reliving: We have detail discussions on stringent action by Circle Management in Force implementation of Transfers orders and withholding of salary of the executives who have practically works in the offices with consent and assurances of SSA Heads /Controlling officers and calling explanation and issuing charge sheet to all such officers , issuing punishment orders, with holding salary of such man made disputed period, asking for leave for such intervening period wherein concerned executives have performed duties and also issuing recordable warning to some of the SSA Heads on pick and choose basis. It is seen that this treatment also given in biased manner and some of executives are not issued even with warning letter and some are being punished by issuing charge sheet and withholding charge sheet and punishment thereof.

·        It is unfortunate that when such letters are issued for increasing SM Sale and there is willingness on part of concerned officers and staff to do so, hundreds of BTS and many of the Exchanges are disconnected from non-payment of Electricity bills and practically in many SDCAs, the BSNL services are shut down. There is much anguish among the customers and many have threatened to ghero BSNL offices and officers for such force shut down services due to Power cut. If the exchanges and BTS are not restored by payment of Electricity Bills or by taking matter centrally with MSEDCL for non –disconnection , then all such letters including this DO letter will be nothing but one of the office formality and if we do not change in this style, the situation will be beyond control of BSNL.

·        Let us hope such DO letters and Prompt actions are taken on priority to pay the outstanding Electricity Bills, Rent Payments and Vendors bills who also have stopped the works of BSNL for non-payments.

29 JUN 19: AGM Pers BSNL CO issued Own Cost Request transfer of Shri. Nitin Rokade, BA Head Nanded without posting substitute against him thereby making post of BA Head vacant which covers four revenue Districts.    Letter <<<>>> 

·        With this transfer order, one more post of GM level Officer in unpopular Field units will be vacant and attempts will be made to fill up this post with local arrangements.

·        Nanded BA is consisting of four Revenue Districts namely Nanded, Latur, Parbhani & Hingoli Districts and it is having large geographical area situated at one corner of Maharashtra Circle.

·        Shri. Rokade, was unwilling for joining Nanded BAs since his orders were issued and later submitted request for all India hard tenure stations so that he can get choice posting back to Mumbai and now his request is given consideration.

·        This is how unpopular  SSAs/BAs do not have GM level takers but there is rush and  competition among GM level Officers in taking posting as SSA/BA/Unit Head in Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur and adjoining SSAs/BAs and many places excess officers are posted.

·        Let us hope Nanded BA gets GM level Officer as substitute to Shri. Nitin Rokade, GMT Nanded on implementation of his request transfer to NE-II Circle.


 29 JUN 19: AGM S&M Mumbai writes to  SSA/BA Heads for use Bharat Fiber Mobile App developed by ITPC Pune for BSNL field staff support for BSNL service related issues including new provision , faults update etc. and without visit to BSNL premises and without access to CDR     Letter <<<>>> 


29 JUN 19: AGM Estt Mumbai endorsed BSNL CO orders for closure of HRMS Package & server of BSNL w.e.f. 01/07/2019. This was in house package developed by BSNL ITPC Pune and in active use for about one decade.      Letter <<<>>>

28 JUN 19: AGM Estt Mumbai issued orders for JTO Phase II training of 30 JTOs from different SSAs in Maharashtra Circle and all will undergo Six  weeks JTO Phase II training at RTCC Pune w.e.f. 08/07/2019.   Letter <<<>>> 


28 JUN 19: CAO FC Mumbai issued guidelines to all SSA Heads for utilization of Finance Staff available after merger of SSA and withdrawal of ERP roles w.e.f. 01/07/2019.    Letter <<<>>> 

·        As per directions this spared staff s to be used for recovery of outstanding amount by visiting to subscriber premises, for proper full-fledged implementation of CIS-dialing and any other activities of TRA works.

·        Letter warns that this arrangement is being made to increase the collection efficiency and recovery of outstanding amount and threatens that in case improvement is not observed then non performer and excessive staff will be transferred to SSAs/BAs having shortage of finance wing executives. 

·        Unfortunately, till FC section is of the opinion that non performer can be punished by transfers and practically such transfers are punishment for BSNL as money is wasted on transfers and this is punishment to family members as they also have to shift along with such non performer in eyes of management, but what is guarantee that non performer at one SSA will be performer at another SSA. We have seen in past that such transfers do not give desired results and only someone feels that  have done good job by transferring so called performer.

·        Let us hope that FC section takes some concrete and result oriented actions for proper utilization of available manpower in finance wing including Circle office Mumbai where about 140 Finance wing officers are posted which may be about 2/3rd of total strength of Finance wing of Maharashtra Circle. Otherwise issuing such letters will be mere completion of formalities as being done for last so many years.

26 JUN 19: AGM Staff Mumbai issued mutual transfer order of two SDEs from Akola and Amravati and now both have got choice posting.  Order <<<>>> 

·        Earlier Com. Mrs. R. B. Kadu, SDE Akola has requested for Pune and her order also was issued for Pune TD, but as she was posted in rural area of Pune TD, she has withdrawn her request for Pune and requested for transfer to Amravati.

·        But it took months’ time and door to door persuasion by Mrs. Kadu for cancellation of her request to Pune and posting to Amravati under change of SSA, but her transfer to Pune was cancelled and she was retained at Akola TD and not given Amravati TD. Now she is given mutual transfer with Com. K. P. Wankhade SDE Amravati and both have got choice posting now.

·        This was possible at first step itself, but as usual Circle office killed time n giving different reasons and she has to approach different influence sources to create pressure on Circle management for getting her order cancelled from Pune and finally getting posting to Amravati SSA and she is successful in her mission Amravati.
