16 AuG 18: Settlement of delayed payments of Salary and Stipend of newly joined JTOs: The JTOs who have newly joined in different SSAs in Maharashtra Circle are facing hardship as their Stipend as well salary has not been credited for last two months.

·        This issue was reported to SNEA MH in last week of July 2018. Since then we have taken follow up on day two days basis and issue was pursued with different officers and offices and with such prolonged persuasion it has been resolved but it took three weeks’ time.

·        The work was initially delayed as the procedure for creation of PERN has been changed and now it is being generated centrally and also in last week of July the Pay Role was locked in ERP for running salary.

·        Thereafter certain issues were reported in ERP which took time of more than one week for practically creation of PERN. Finally matter was partially settled on 10/08/2018 as the ERP issues were resolved by ERP Team at BSNL CO and PERN were generated for all these JTOs.

·        Since then the other related works were going on in different offices and finally the details about dues to be paid to these JTOs have been reached to CSC Mumbai for disbursement of payments. Accordingly all the dues will be remitted to the bank accounts of concerned JTOs within day or two.

·        Till any of the JTO has any issue related to his/her payments, he/she may please contact Com Ankit Gangar, JS HQ SNEA MH on Mob 9420685756 or email 

·        No doubt, one and half month delay cannot be justified for such important works and definitely it is due to careless and casual approach of staff section in dealing with HR issues.

·        Normally in good HR management, such issues needs to be taken care as routine matter and there should not be any need of persuasion by anyone, but nowadays such working is missing in Circle Office Mumbai and we just can hope for improvement in days to come.

15 AUG 18: On the eve of Independence day, Long played Football Match on “grant of VCs” concluded as expected without any extraordinary results:  The football match on grant of VCs for posting order within Maharashtra Circle in respect of 11 SDEs on their DE Regular promotion which was played between Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai & his team has been come to conclusion on the eve of Independence Day and all 11 officers promoted from SDE to DE are given relief by completing formality of issuing their posting order within Maharashtra Circle as it is where it is basis. Order <<<>>>.

·        Comrades may remember that there was high level conflict and so called “Football Match’ on grant of VCs for promotion of 11 DEs between Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai for their posting within Maharashtra Circle.

·        Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai and his team has taken stand that till VC is not issued in clear words i.e. VC is clear or withheld, he will not issue posting order of these 11 officers within Maharashtra Circle on their promotion as DE and Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai his team has taken stand in consultation with CVO BSNL that once VC has been issued for DPC at BSNL CO, no fresh VC is required at Circle level as demanded by GM HR Admn Mumbai and his team.

·        When conflict was not resolved for 10 days, then SNEA MH has taken up this matter separately with Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai but both were firm on their stand and no one was ready to review it.

·        Then SNEA MH has requested Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH Circle to resolve this conflict and make permanent arrangements to avoid such unwanted delay and make it routine procedure. Letter <<<>>>

·        But after intervention of Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH, as being done in all cases,  this matter was “escalated” at higher level to BSNL CO as none of the officer in Maharashtra Circle has capacity and ability to decide such simple issues and issues are always being sent to BSNL CO for clarification/s.

·        Accordingly with consent of Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH to get clarification from BSNL CO, Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai has taken up matter with GM Pers/Jt GM Pers BSNL CO telephonically as well as in writing but even after waiting for one week no clarification has been issued by BSNL CO and these 11 officers were kept under tension for last 24 days.

·        After Vidarbha tour in last week, when SNEA MH leaders have taken short meeting with Shri. Amana Jaiswal, GM HR/Admn Mumbai on 10/08/2018 evening hours to know the status of posting order of 11 DEs, GM HR Admn Mumbai was annoyed and expressed that why SNEA is pursuing this matter so hard for and he also expressed his concern why so many officers are calling him for posting of just 11 DEs.

·        We made him clear that his office has made this simple issue complicated and hence these officers are worried where they will get promotions or not as already 20 days are over and if posting orders would have been issued by his office in time, then there was no need of persuasion on our side as well by individual officers including some SSA Heads as quoted by him. 

·        We also narrated that rumors are being spread that these 11 officers are not getting DE posting as VC of all these officers are withheld and hence there is immediate need of issuing posting orders.  

·        Finally, GM HR Admn Mumbai clam down and informed that during his two days leave, Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH has called Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Mumbai and has instructed him to issue orders subject to VCs with intimation to BSNL CO. Knowing this we have insisted him for issuing orders on that day itself, then GM HR Admn told that it is already 1800 hrs and firmly assured to issue orders on morning of next working day i.e. Monday and we also agreed for that.

·        But unfortunately nothing was done on Monday full day as Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Mumbai was on leave. As such, in the evening hours, we reminded Shri. B.P.Tambat, AGM Staff Mumbai and to our surprise he informed that he has not received any instructions from GM HR Admn Mumbai or DGM HR Mumbai and he has not processed file for posting of 11 DEs.

·        We have requested Com. B. P. Tambat, AGM Staff Mumbai to discuss this matter with GM HR Admn Mumbai and when he discussed then GM HR Admn Mumbai directed him to process the file, but by then it was again 1800 hrs of Monday and that day file was processed by AD Staff Mumbai and reached to AGM Staff Mumbai and hence order was not issued.

·        On next day i.e. on Tuesday it was expected that order will be issued in the morning hours, but as officers in Staff section have intention to delay order, nothing happened in full day as file was kept with GM HR Admn Mumbai and with our reminder request in the evening hours, same was sent to Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra Looking After CGMT MH, but since afternoon he was busy with Video Conference of NOFN and file was not cleared as it was sent in very casual manner and with big note and nobody clears file with such big note without discussions.

·        By understanding the fact that file will not be cleared today also as there is total reluctance on part of officers in HR/Admn Section Mumbai, Com. Anil Dubey DS SNEA CO Mumbai and Com. M. S. Adasul CS SNEA MH Mumbai reached to office of CGMT MH and waited for completion of VC and it was again 1800 hrs of Tuesday 14/08/2018, when CGMT LA was free from Video Conferencing.

·        After that we met Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra Looking After CGMT MH, and informed him about the issue of posting order of 11 DEs and urgency thereof. In response, he informed that he is aware of the issue but file will be cleared on 16/08/2018 as he has been made to understand by somebody that VC of all 11 Officers are kept on hold and till it is insisted that DE promotion order should be issued for this officers and hence he needs some time to understand the issue and complications thereof. 

·        We have narrated him the entire episode and childish stand taken by senior officers for last 20 days under influence of biased juniors and how these 11 DEs are under tension for last 20 days, Shri. Mishra immediately acted and gone through file and big note has been written by officers in Staff section. He asked us what was stand of regular CGMT MH Shri. Peeyush Khare and we have informed him that he has already issued direction to issue orders on 08/08/2018, but since then six days passed but order is not issued by GM HR Admn Mumbai and his team deliberately as they want VCs from GM Vig Mumbai in format as expected by them  and with our persuasion on day to day basis for last fortnight, now file has been sent to his office by 1600 hrs today for his approval and we requested him to clear it today itself as it is already too late.

·        After getting detail feedback from us, going through the VC Report available in the file, Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra CGMT MH LA discussed this matter telephonically with Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai who repeated his side and story thereof.

·        Then Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra CGMT MH LA called Shri. Keshav Rao, GM Pers BSNL CO Delhi and GM Pers clarified that there is no need of fresh VCs and in similar manner posting order has been issued in all other Circles and it is only pending in MH Circle. He also clarified that there is no need of special VC as insisted by GM HR Admn Mumbai and posting orders may be issued on the basis of information given by Vigilance section certifying that there is no case is pending against these officers.

·        Finally, after understanding the facts to depth that to be within no time, Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra CGMT MH LA was kind enough to approve the orders for posting order of 11 DEs within Maharashtra Circle as it is where it is basis and file was sent to GM HR Admn Mumbai by hand.  

·        But, when we found that even after approval of CGMT MH no moment was seen in Staff section to issue order, we again met Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai, and as expected by us he was again annoyed and asked us why we are so much behind this order. We have made him clear that file approved by CGMT MH is marked by him to DGM HR Mumbai and it will be pending up to 16/08/2018 as Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR is on leave, then he said what will happen if order is issued on next day. We made him clear that when AGM Staff and AD Staff are available in office and order is ready and approved by CGMT MH then what is problem in issuing order today. He informed that the order is small issues for him and he is busy with some serious matters since morning and hence not giving importance to this order. We told him as it is very small issue hence needs to be cleared today itself as  now nothing is left and only file kept in his office needs to be handed over to AGM Staff directly without waiting for Shri. B A Patil, DGM HR Mumbai.

·        Finally, GM HR Admn Mumbai called Shri. B. P. Tambat AGM Staff Mumbai and handed over him file directly with directions to issue posting order today itself and accordingly at 1930 hrs the posting order of these 11 DEs was issued giving one sided full stop  to “Football Match” going on between Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai.

·        Thus the high level Football Match on grant of VCs and individuals understanding thereof which was continued for 24 days has been concluded without any results and all 11 DEs got relief from the tension they were facing due to this unwanted Football Match of last 24 days since their promotion order was issued by BSNL CO on 20/07/2018.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra CGMT MH LA for his prompt action and concluding this unwanted “Football Match” and getting all facts clarified from all concerned telephonically within no time and setting examples for other about efficient working and capacity to handle the conflicts.

·        Hope all other officers in Maharashtra Circle will learn lesson from him about how to settle such unwanted issues within no time and how to go ahead with positive thinking keeping focus on major works.

·        It is unfortunate that nowadays the officers in HR (Human Resource) Section has lost  Human approach and each and every matter is twisted, taken much time to decide and if decided then it is decided to call for clarification from BSNL Corporate office.

·        It will not be exaggeration if we say that Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai is with Civil background and new to HR issues has very good and gentle Human Approach but this good quality in him is disappearing day by day as he is under total influence of Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai who is extra curious, want to play safe game in each action and expert in creating confusion in mind of Shri. Aman Jaiswal, and it should not reason for worry to us, but we are worried because here sufferers are the executives in Maharashtra Circle.

·        Not only in this issue of posting of 11 DEs and want of VCs, we have seen such inhuman approach of HR section in dealing with many other issues like exaggeration of facts in looking After arrangements, issuing caveat notice, relieving through ERP, issuing pick and choose LA orders neglecting seniority and vacancies thereof, relieving of the officers through ERP, Issuing charge sheet to officers not accepting LA arrangements, then reverting such officers on joining new SSA on name of Charge sheet,  delaying rather denying Leave cases received from different SSA Heads for months together, transfers of SDEs/DEs to NRUs, long pending promotion order of PA to PS, issuing minutes of the formal meeting, biased approach in dealing with immunity cases, Deliberate action to de-recognize the SNEA Nanded District Branch and keeping matter shunting n files without any action and indirect support to GMT Nanded for his illegal action, issue of the caste validity and its exaggeration beyond limits creating compulsons on all Executives under reserved category, unwanted linking of Caste validity with TBP promotion and indirectly keeping all TBP order on hold for months together, clarification required  under immunity to office bearers and so on.

·        From this, it appears that the officers in HR section want to play each and every game of office work safely and either matter will be delayed on name of detail study and or it will be delayed by calling clarification from the Corporate office as if there is no capability in these officers for right and human approach interpretation of the letters to give relief to the executives and this is really dangerous.

·        Unfortunately “Who Cares” attitude is growing in HR section, Circle Office, BSNL Maharashtra Circle and even with intervention of higher officers like CGMT MH, the issues are twisted and kept pending for months together to prove the intelligence” of the officers in HR section may be due to fact that CGMT MH is of the opinion that there is no need of intelligence for working in HR section.

·        SNEA MH will continue the vigorous persuasion of the pending HR issues to give justice to all its comrades by raising voice against all such deliberate actions of certain officers in HR section of Circle Office Mumbai. 

·        Let us hope that on eve of 72nd Independence of India, the executives in BSNL Maharashtra Circle get relief from this dirty politics and fear factor working of certain officers in HR section deliberately harassing executives for no fault on their part and let us pray God to give “Human Approach Wisdom” to these officers dealing with HR issues of executives in Maharashtra Circle.

11 AUG 18: Meeting with Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai: Com. Abhay Kesarkar JS NRU SNEA MH and Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH had discussions with Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai on 03/08/ 2018 on some current pending HR issues. The detail of discussions is as follows. 

1.     Publishing updated SSA wise Executive Strength: SNEA requested for publishing SSA wise working strength on MH intranet. As usual, GM HR Admn Mumbai told that he will give it final shape and then it will be uploaded. We have informed him that this is routine matter and data is being changed every month and it was regularly published on monthly basis but it has been stopped all off sudden and it creates confusion among the executives. We also requested to publish it because since long time it has not been published and reason also is not given for not publishing it. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to publish available data immediately and assured that updated data will be published regularly.

2.     Pending request on medical grounds: We have brought to his notice genuine medical ground cases, which were not given consideration by Circle Management. In response, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that all the cases were processed in file and CGMT MH rejected cases and now he cannot process these old cases except there are specific instructions from CGMT MH. We have informed him the two specific cases on medical grounds i.e. case of Com. A. P. Kulkarni JTO Beed, whose case has been recommended by Civil Surgeon Beed in prescribed format as asked by CGMT MH, and another case of Com. A. H. Waghmare SDE Satara and both are transferred to Ratnagiri. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the reply to letter by SCT Cell BSNL CO on complaint of Com. A H Waghmare is being sent. He further assured that if request of Com A.P. Kulkarni has been received with fresh recommendations of TDM Beed with Medical certificate in prescribed format by Civil Surgeon then his case will be processed in file and it will be decided by CGMT MH. We also brought to his notice the genuine medical ground cases of Com. M. M. Murpe, JTO Bhandara to Nagpur, Com. Bhushan Ghorphade JTO & Com. Mrs. S B Ghorphade JTO Pune to Kalyan, Com Ashish Patil & Com Mrs Ashwini Patil Pune to Kalyan and Com. Geeta Kowe Sahoo JTO Bhandara to Nagpur were not considered in last spell and since then we are requesting for its consideration, but not considered. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured that all these medical ground cases will be given consideration in spell of Sept 2018.

3.     Request transfers of JTOs to & from NRUs: SNEA MH reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai that he has assured to consider the request transfers of JTOs to and from NRU Circles i.e. WTR, WTP, ITPC and BBNW etc after completion of transfers within Circle but till same has not been taken care. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has planned to consider all these requests , but could not consider due multiple work load increased over the period, but assured that these cases will be given fresh look and most probably all such requests will be given consideration by or before spell of transfers in Sept 2018.  

4.     Request transfers pending for Mobile:  We have brought to the notice of GM HR/Admn Mumbai that though some request are given consideration to Mobile many request are pending for mobile section and needs consideration. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to look into it, but informed that the matter needs to be settled at SSA level and he will take care of posting to Mobile Nodal Pune only and such requests will be given consideration in spell of Sept 2018.

5.     Forwarding of pending requests of SDE/DEs for TERM, BBNW, WTR, WTR and other Circles: We have brought to the notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai that since last seven months the request of SDEs for TERM, BBNW, WTR, WTR and other Circles are kept on hold in his office and no action has been taken on it even after assurances of CGMT MH in formal meeting. We also brought to his notice that now willingness also called by BSNL CO for such posting, but nothing has been done on part of Maharashtra Circle to forwards the cases. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there was delay as he want to update data of long stay within Circle, out of Circle in respect of all officers and he want to quote it in the forwarding letters if any of the officer has been posted to tenure stations within Circle on long stay or is part of long stay list for all India Transfers. Now, same data has been updated and request of TERM Cell have been already sent and assured that the request for all other Circle including NRUs will also be sent within 2-3 days. He directed us to get copies of such letters from AD Staff B Mumbai/AGM Staff Mumbai.

6.     Issuing orders for posting within MH pending for want of VCs and need of streamline procedures for getting timely VCs: We have brought to notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai about undue delay in issuing the posting orders within Maharashtra Circle just for want of VCs in prescribed format. We also brought to his notice about our discussions with GM Vig Mumbai and concerned officers at BSNL CO Delhi and there is no need of fresh VC for issuing posting orders as once same has been taken care by DPC Cell BSNL CO. However, GM HR Admn Mumbai insisted that if it is so then, why it has been mentioned in the Promotion Orders. We requested him to issue the pending order of 11 DEs and matter may be taken up for later cases. We also brought to his notice that posting orders have been issued by all Circles and this matter is pending only in Maharashtra Circle due to this conflict. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has done in similar way for all other promotions and matter needs to be settled once for all. He further added that Vigilance Section is not ready to give VC status in clear words and Promotion order says CGMT concerned has to ensure the pendency of Disciplinary case, Vigilance case or pendency of punishment order and hence as per directions of CGMT MH he has written letter to GM Pers BSNL CO calling clarification where fresh VC is required or not and if not then why it has been mentioned in promotion orders. He assured for getting this clarification early by personal talks to Jt GM Pers and GM Pers BSNL CO and asked 2-3 days’ time for issuing posting orders of DEs promoted on 20/06/2018.

7.     Consideration of request of DEs from SSAs having excess DEs to SSAs having shortage of DEs: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai towards issue that SSAs like Sindhudurg have excess DEs and SSAs like Ratnagiri, Raigad have shortage of DEs and some DEs from Sindhudurg SSA are willing for Ratnagiri and Raigad SSA or other SSAs having shortage of DEs. Same is the case in some other SSAs and such request from DEs needs to be given consideration. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there are excess DEs in MH Circle as 536 DEs are now posted in Maharashtra Circle against sanctioned post of 405 DEs and hence there are chances that excess DEs from MH Circle will be posted out of MH Circle and hence he has reluctance on consideration of such requests. We have brought to his notice that the DE promotions are issued by up gradation of DE post and sanctioned post are doubted as upgraded posts are nearly as that of sanctioned posts and hence sanctioned post of DEs in Maharashtra Circle are also doubled. Also in every Circle now minimum required DEs are available and hence chances of transfers are less. Then GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he will decided such requests after DGM Regular promotion orders which are expected shortly and decision will be taken on the basis of how many DGMs/DEs will be retained in MH and how many will be shifted out of Maharashtra Circle and accordingly action for rearrangements of DEs with MH Circle will be decided. We requested to consider these cases from Sindhudurg SSA to Ratnagiri/Raigad SSA as Sindhudurg SSA has excess DEs and Ratnagiri/Raigad SSA have shortage of DEs. We also requested for any other changes of DEs, the data must be published on MH intranet on excess /shortage and willingness may be called for to fill up shortage if any in any of the SSA and accordingly decision may be taken on the basis of the guidelines followed by BSNL CO to shift on basis of long stay or the seniority of the officer. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to look into it and also assured that whatever policy will be followed by BSNL CO, same will be followed in Maharashtra Circle also.

8.     Preparation of Circle Gradation list of JTOs in Maharashtra Circle: SNEA MH informed that though the efforts are being taken by Estt Section to update CGL/AEIL of JTOs in MH Circle, there is no reasonable progress in giving it final shape. Except Maharashtra Circle, data of all Circles has reached BSNL and one such reminder has been issued by Pers cell. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he is aware about the situation and by understanding its urgency and need of accuracy, he is not only personally monitoring the matter but he himself is working for purification of AIEL data and has given certain shape to the list. He wants to ascertain the details of about 60-70 JTOs out of about 400 JTOs for which data was mismatched. He was optimistic that the entire work will be completed within 2-3 days and by 05/08/2018, data for AIEL of JTOs in MH Circle will be finalised and sent to BSNL CO.

9.      Finalisation of SCR of SDEs in seniority list No 8: SNEA MH informed that the SCR of SDEs from Seniority list no 8 under OC category from Maharashtra Circle is not yet sent and the work in Establishment section is going on but it is very slow process and in similar way, the data will be delayed for months. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he was not aware about SCR to be sent to BSNL CO as many works are going on. However, he assured that he will look into it personally and see that SCR is finalised and sent as early as possible. 

10.   Action on Group Term Insurance and benevolent fund proposal: On both these long pending issues, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that CGMT MH has rejected proposal for benevolent fund. The Group Term Insurance proposal was till now with GM Fin Mumbai and in recent meeting, CGMT MH has given him directions to finalise the Group Term Insurance proposal. Accordingly, he is on job, he has collected basic data for it, and very shortly, proposal for Group Term Insurance will be processed in file for approval of CGMT MH and assured that this proposal will be finalised by end of Aug 2018 and he will try his level best to get competitive rates from insurance companies. On reasons for rejection of proposal for benevolent fund, he informed that matter may be discussed with CGMT MH.

11.   Corrected of the minutes of the formal meeting: GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that now he is personally looking in to it and corrected minutes will be issued very shortly. He insisted that all views expressed by SNEA in its letter cannot be accommodated in minutes , but he will try to make it as per the discussions held in the meeting and also assured to issue minutes by next week or latest b 20/08/2018.

12.   Equal Treatment and applicability of rules while granting immunity to the OBs of associations: We have elaborate discussions on this issue and SNEA has pointed out biased actions by his office in dealing with immunity cases and undue favour to Com. P.G. Wankhade DS AIBSNLEA Amravati. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that it is not biased approach and it was matter on delayed request by Com. Wankhade as he was of the opinion that he will be automatically retained and no need to apply fresh and hence his office has accepted his direct application and sent it to GMT Amravati. He also stressed that some politics being played at Amravati as his application was accepted by GMT Amravati and GM HR Admn propagated that there is nothing wrong in receiving the application at later stage and granting immunity when it is due. We objected that how he receives the application directly once the officer is relieved, then he narrated that he has taken similar action in other cases also and threatened that if SNEA stresses for same, he will apply it for all other cases including requests of SNEA. We have clarified him that SNEA has no objection if rule is applied equally for all and he has to accept that his office has worked in biased manner as other cases were recommended by SSA Heads and were delayed in his office and fresh recommendations were called by his office with written letter and by giving names. But in case of Com Wankhade, case was not sent through proper channel and there was reluctance on part of office GMT Amravati to recommend the case, once officer was relieved from Amravati. We alleged that his office has worked in biased manner and has done undue favour by issuing posting order as SDE Yavatmal at Amravati. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that politics is being played at Amravati SSA and he has taken action as per guidelines only and nothing is wrong on his side but he was not having answer to our question why he has not given such treatment to request of Com. B. R. Kamble DS SNEA Nanded when request was recommended by GMT Nanded and he replied that matter is under consideration and final decision will be taken as per reply from GMT Nanded.   

13.   Action against Shri. Nitin Rokade, GMT Nanded for illegal de-recognition of SNEA Nanded Branch: On this GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that Shri. Nitin Rokade, GMT Nanded in firm on his stand and he has sent second reply also that his decision on de-recognition of SNEA Nanded is correct and has given justification of the complaint of Com. B. N. Totod Ex President SNEA Nanded. When we have brought to the notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai that Com. Totod has raised certain grievances in March 2017 and same have been clarified in March 2017 itself and then District Body has been approved and what happened to de-recognise District Body in May 2018 needs to be clarified. We also stressed that GMT Nanded cannot play dirty politics and same cannot be supported by Circle Management. We also stressed that GM HR Admn Mumbai is indirectly supporting GMT Nanded for his illegal action as matter has been kept shunting in files since May 2018 and no proper action is being taken on it. Recent reply of GMT Nanded has been received by AGM Staff Mumbai before one week , but no action has been taken on it and deliberate attempt is being made to delay the works and continuing the de-recognition of SNEA Nanded. We also pointed out that his office is biased in this matter as when case was recommended by GMT Nanded, what made AGM Staff Mumbai to get copy of old complaint and create hurdle in the request of immunity of Com. B. R. Kamble, DS SNEA Nanded and we raised strong objection on such discrimination by GM HR Admn Mumbai and his support to wrong doings under overacting by  AGM Staff Mumbai who has some malafide intention in putting such unwanted complaint in file and twisting matter to the extent of de-recognition of District Body of SNEA Nanded.  On this argument GM HR Admn Mumbai was annoyed as he was not able to justify the unwanted actions of AGM Staff Mumbai and hence tried to close matter with assurance that the latest reply from GMT Nanded will be sent to SNEA for comments if its copy has not been marked to SNEA MH /SNEA Nanded and comments of SNEA will be taken into consideration, and after receipt of the reply from SNEA further course of action will be decided in this matter.   

14.   Settlement of grievances of officers forced relieved through ERP by settlement of leave or joining period: We informed that salary of many of the executives is kept on hold by many of the SSAs even after their joining new SSA as per the transfer order. This has been done as per the instructions of his office in posting orders. Many of the officers have not availed leave and have joined new place of posting after relieving by the concerned SSA. But this period from ERP relieving to actual joining is being treated as absent period even though there is no mistake on part of individual. We also brought to his  notice that some of officers who have joined at transferred SSA under LA arrangements are served with charge sheet and on name of charge sheet they are reverted and the very purpose of their transfer to hold higher position under looking after arrangements is defeated. There are many such cases and salary of many of the officers is held for no mistake on their part. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that his office receive such request and all such cases are being processed in file one by one. He further assured that all these requests will be processed in file and decision will be taken shortly.

15.   Issues with pending orders for SEE Nagpur /Mumbai as per LA guidelines: On this GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has sent letters conveying his views on matter of SEE and now action is to be taken by CEE Mumbai. He informed that LA orders are to be issued as per all India seniority of the executives in that particular cadre. On financial powers for SEE under LA arrangements, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that under LA arrangements financial powers are to be given action on part of CEE Mumbai to issue SEE LA orders needs to be reviewed. But he added that his role is over now and directed us to take up matter with CEE Mumbai.     

16.   Request under transfer policy guidelines by Electrical wing executives: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai toward the cases of Executives in Electrical wing who have submitted refusal in LA arrangements and whose cases are fit for acceptance of refusal as per the transfer policy guidelines, but even after months’ time no action has been taken on such cases, rather CEE Mumbai is pressing hard for relieving of these officers. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has cleared the files received from CEE Mumbai on the subject and further course of action is to be taken by CEE Mumbai and directed us to take up matter with Mr. Rajeev Soni, CEE Mumbai.  

17.   Unwanted linking of caste validity with TBP and direct denial of TBP to executives in reserved category: We have elaborated him about the mass unrest among the executives due to unnecessary linking of caste validity with TBP promotions delay of years together in approval of TBP cases and made it clear that certain officers from his office are intentionally playing with sentiments of executives under reserved category and making indirect attempts to deny the rights of these executives. We made it clear that there is no roster in TBP, rather caste has no relation with TBP but some extra intelligent officers in his office have exaggerated facts and harassing the executives by withholding their TBP as TBP of about all executives in Reserved Category are kept on hold. Earlier all TBP cases were kept on hold for period of more than six months without assigning reason but indirectly matter was caste certificates, When matter was pursued by SNEA MH, then TBP cases of OC category executives were cleared but TBP cases of executives in Reserved Category are kept on hold rather indirectly denied and all these officers under reserved category are kept under tension by calling caste validity certificates. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that as per DoPT guidelines of Year 2007, caste validity is mandatory before any promotions and hence same is applied for TBP. We have informed him that about all the executives, for whom his office has kept on hold the TBP, have received regular promotions and stand of his office to keep on hold the TBP cases has no relevance at this stage and requested him to clear all TBP cases kept on hold. We also narrated that caste validity is mandatory at the date of joining in DoT/BSNL and many of the executives have submitted the validity, but nothing has been done on part of officers in staff section to confirm availability of validity in office and each and every officer from reserved category seems to be denied the TBP. We also informed that officers in OBC category do not have any scope in promotions and no question of any privilege in TBP, but the said biased officers have overacted and the TBP cases of the officers in OBC category also are kept on hold.  As per constitution and being Government Servant, everybody with good HR approach needs to uplift the officers from the reserved category by supporting them by all means  and here deliberate attempts are made to deny the right of the only officers in reserved category and this act is against the law of land. After elaborate discussions, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has decided to write one more reminder letter to BSNL CO and then will wait for one week and if no response/reply is received within week then without waiting for clarification from BSNL CO, all the pending TBP orders will be issued within fortnight.  

18.   Action on complaints by SNEA MH/Nagpur against Mrs. Namrata Tiwari GMT Nagpur: We reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai on pending grievances/complaints of Joint Forum/SNEA Nagpur and even after repeated complaints no action has been taken in this matter. When we have inquired with GM Pers and Director HR BSNL Board about the action on long stay of Mrs Namrata Tiwari GMT Nagpur at Nagpur, it has been informed that till today no single letter has been received by their office from CGMT MH Circle. It has been also assured that action will be immediately taken if such written complaints are forwarded by Maharashtra Circle. On this GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the committee constituted by his office of the officers at Nagpur to investigate the complaints against Mrs Tiwari has submitted its report and as per report of the committee as on today all the grievances raised by Joint Forum Nagpur are settled and nothing is pending. Then we reminded that compliant was in two parts, one part was harassment of executives and non-executives by Mrs Tiwari and another part was her long stay of 24 years at Nagpur. We also pointed out that she is given undue favour by giving dual charge as GM Admn in Nagpur TD and PGM Mobile at Nagpur as separate charge and her intervention in HR issues continues as each and every file is routed through her. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the committee has recommended that decision on long stay and transfer of Mrs Tiwari is to be taken by Circle office or BSNL Corporate office. We have brought to his notice that as per information by leaders of Join Forum at Nagpur through DS SNEA Nagpur, none of grievances are settled but its intensity has been reduced with posting of PGMT Nagpur, but the hardship of executives and non-executives continues as Mrs Tiwari hold the charge of GM Admn Nagpur as well as PGMT Nagpur and specially brought to his notice, how Mrs Tiwari works as GMT Nagpur and also as PGMT Mobile at same time when no such order has been issued by BSNL Corporate office. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to look into the pending grievances if any and the complaint about long stay of Mrs. Namrata Tiwari GMT Nagpur /PGMT Mobile Nagpur will also be looked into. We demanded for copy of the report of the Committee to ascertain the realities by Joint Forum/SNEA Nagpur and to know how committee has come to wrong conclusion that all the grievances are settled when DS SNEA Nagpur still says that grievances are pending. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to discuss it with CGMT MH and decide further course of action. 

19.   Filing unwanted caveats in each and every case of transfer and terror being created in the minds of executives: We have once again informed GM HR Admn Mumbai that action on part of management to file caveat in each and every case of transfer is unwanted for and it is unnecessary creating fear in minds of the officers under transfer. We also narrated that much more expenditure is being incurred by BSNL in filing such caveat in different courts and this is not affordable when BSNL is facing extreme financial crunch. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there is no much expenditure made on caveat as expenditure involved in each transfer order is just Rs 6000.00 per order per Court and not per officer under transfer. But we impleaded that Rs. 6000 per order per court means it comes Rs 36000.00 per order including High Court /CAT at Mumbai/Nagpur and Aurangabad and the expenditure is in multiples of the transfer orders issued which will definitely come in lakhs of rupees. Further expenditure made on sending such notices to each and every officer from different courts also coast some definite administrative expenses. But GM HR Admn advocated that such caveat is required to implement any order as if one individual goes to the court then entire order is stayed and entire process of transfer and posting is kept on hold. The very purpose of filing caveat is just that transfer order is not stayed and after filing also individual can approach the court, but in such cases one sided stay is not granted on entire transfer orders and the case may be admitted on merits of the case pleaded by individual. In conclusion GM HR Admn Mumbai was of the opinion that the expenditure is very small and it is justified in view of the urgency of implementation of transfer orders caveat is justified and f required association may take up matter with CGMT MH.     

20.   Review of reduced EOIs and SGs at least by SSAs requesting for it: We have narrated GM HR Admn the difficulties faced by executives in the filed units and  losses being faced by BSNL due to abnormal reduction of EOIs and Security Guards. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that till now he was in the decision making process of the EOIs and SGs, but now all the decisions are being taken by GM Fin Mumbai as he is dealing this issue and directed us to take up matter with GM Fin Mumbai. 

21.   Consideration of pending Rule 8 transfers: GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that as discussed earlier all the Rule 8 Request Transfers were processed in file and have been approved by CGMT MH Circle and very shortly all the request will be sent to concern Circles for consent. We conveyed sincere thanks for this good gesture on part of Circle Management and this will be great relief to all the JTOs who were waiting for their transfers.  

22.   Publication of revised long stay list in view of promotions in different cadres: We requested GM HR Admn Mumbai that due to recent promotions there are many changes in the stay particulars and about all long stay lists will be revised. Hence to understand the position of officer in the Circle/SSA long stay list it is required that revised list is published on MH intranet so that concerned Executives may take decision accordingly. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that work is already in progress and data has been called from SSA and after consolidation of data long stay Circle/SSA lists will be published by his office and most probably it will be issued within fortnight the long stay list.

23.   Untimely transfer on pick and choose basis as per wish and will of certain SSA Heads: We have discussed the transfer order of Com.  M. P. Bhole, TDM/DE Buldhana and how he is being harassed by issuing untimely transfer. Com Bhole is not issued even single letter till today and till he is transferred without assigning any reason. He informed that Com. Bhole has been reverted from TDM to DE and then transferred on the recommendations of BA Head Aurangabad. We have brought his notices the issues related to the case, but GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that till recommendation of BA Head Aurangabad nothing is possible in this case and directed us to take up case with BA Head Aurangabad and CGMT MH.

24.   Request for Retention on Educational grounds: We have requested GM HR Admn Mumbai to consider request of Com. V. H. Khasnis SDE Satara for own cost deputation to Pune up to March 2018 as her Son is studying in 12th Standard which is State Board Exam. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that all such cases are rejected earlier and hence chances of consideration of such request are less. But if fresh request is received through proper channel with recommendations of SSA same will be processed in file and final decision on it will be taken by CGMT MH.

The meeting started at 1130 hrs conducted at 1430 hrs with fruitful and positive discussions on all above issues.  


10 AuG 18: Finally “Truth Wins” as Stand of SNEA on right of refusal by executives in LA arrangements is confirmed: In special letter addressed to CGMT MH Circle, AGM Pers Policy BSNL Corporate Office, New Delhi O clarified that BSNL executives cannot be compelled for holding higher responsibilities and refusal submitted with any reason should be accepted by competent authority. Letter <<<>>>

·        This clarification is issued addressed to CGMT MH Circle as such extreme compulsions were created only in Maharashtra Circle.

·        This is victory of the executives in Maharashtra Circle under banner of SNEA as only SNEA has opposed such extreme biased decision and raised voice against deliberate injustice and harassment of executives in BSNL Maharashtra Circle.

·        This is set back to the deliberate harassment tactics adopted by Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH Circle and unfortunately it was blindly followed by Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR/Admn Mumbai, Shri. Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai and Shri. Rajeev Soni Sr CEE Mumbai.

·        It was also followed by Shri. Kumar Manoj CE Civil Mumbai but his approach was not blind enough and has shown some Human approach on this issue and has given consideration to the request of the executives to better extent and SNEA MH has not received much complaints from Civil wing.

·        Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR /Admn Mumbai has shown considerate views at the initial stage to go as per the guidelines on the subject but his stand washed away in pressure created by Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH Circle and later Shri. Jaiswal also kept deliberate mum on forceful implementation of his wrong interpretation on option available to executives on refusal LA arrangements.

·        The looking After practice was rightly followed in Maharashtra Circle for long time, but since Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH has taken over as CGMT MH, the matter was twisted and rules were used as per will and wish of the officers. At earlier stage only limited executives were given LA arrangements, vacancy position was not given consideration, seniors were compelled to work under juniors, LA orders were just extended, some of officers were given Look After Arrangements on pick and choose basis by excluding names of the seniors and nothing was done to give consideration to rights and difficulties of executives.

·        SNEA MH has aggressively raised voice against this biased approach by the Circle management in the Formal meeting held with CGMT MH and practically CGMT MH was annoyed with serious and aggressive concern expressed by the SNEA MH with supporting documents.

·        But as the stand of SNEA MH was correct and with supporting documents, accordingly it was agreed by Circle Management and first spell of LA was issued where it is as it is basis and there it was written that though officers are given higher responsibilities at higher position, all will continue to work on the same post with higher designation in LA arrangements.

·        However, when the next spell of LA arrangements was issued on 01/04/2018, the transfer orders were issued for executives who could not be accommodated in same SSA due to shortage of vacancies in that SSA and some of the officers were transferred from one corner of Maharashtra to another corner. This happened when many of the officers have submitted unwillingness as per options called by Circle Management and options submitted well before issuing orders.

·        When these officers have submitted refusal after issuing orders giving genuine reasons, GM HR/Admn Mumbai tried his level best to follow the procedure of accepting refusal and all the requests were processed in the file. However, CGMT MH strait away refused to accept any of the refusal and has taken stand that Executives do not have right of refusal Looking After Arrangements.

·        CGMT MH has taken extreme adamant & strange stand that these executives have right to refuse the Regular /Adhoc promotion, but they do not have right to refuse the looking after arrangements and in his support he has informed that he has got telephonic clarification from GM Personal BSNL CO. He also added that he has personally discussed this issue with Director HR BSNL Board during West Zone meeting at Ahmedabad and both GM Pers & Dir HR  have confirmed his stand that executives do not have right to refuse the LA arrangements even with genuine reasons and has to  join new place of posting ordered by him.

·        Then SNEA MH has continuously pursued matter with Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH Circle and we have drawn his attention on the prevailing guidelines and procedure followed in MH Circle and in other circles including BSNL Corporate office, but Shri. Khare CGMT MH insisted for showing specific letter where it has been clearly mentioned that executives have right to refuse LA arrangements and has straight away refused to accept any of the refusals regardless of genuineness of reasons.

·        Meanwhile during visits by SNEA MH leaders to Delhi, it was discussed with GM Pers and Dir HR and we were surprised to note that no such instructions were given to CGMT MH Circle and LA arrangement can be refused by the concerned officer and same has been confirmed in this clarification.   

·        Then SNEA MH has pursued matter on basis of the Transfer policy guidelines as majority of executives under out of SSA transfers in LA arrangement were fitting in the transfer policy guidelines and hence such majority of executives got the relief.

·        But certain officers, who were not fitting in transfer policy guidelines were compelled by management  to join new place of posting and Circle Management has gone to extreme extent that caveat were filed in Hon CAT Mumbai/Nagpur and Hon High Court Mumbai/Aurangabad and Nagpur so that no one approaches court of law.

·        Not only this, all unwilling officers were forced relieved through ERP and their salary was stopped and SSA Heads were threatened that action will be taken against them if they do not relieve these officers transferred out of SSA under LA arrangements.

·        When these pressure tactics could not yield the desired results, the Circle Management has gone to the extent that the officers who were relieved through ERP and not joined at new place of posting were issued charge sheet on "What’s App" and by emails and their salary was totally stopped even though some of them were working in office as not relieved by SSA Heads.

·        The cruelty has reached to the extreme extent that some of the officers who have bowed to the pressure of cruel management and have joined new place of the posting and extreme biased approach these officers were issued charge sheet and were reverted in basic cadre as they are issued charge sheet and cannot be given LA orders.

·        Under this pressure and charge sheet, some of the officers also lost the Regular promotions as they were issued with charge sheet on date of the regular promotion order.

·        The deliberate adamancy continued to the extent that the representation given by these officers to withdraw charge sheet with justified reasons are unofficially kept on hold and not at all processed in file and if processed in file, since last one month no decision has been taken on it.

·        When Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai has shown some concern about the difficulties of executives, Shri. Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai and Shri. Rajeev Soni CEE Mumbai used it as tool to harass executives and they have more blindly and strongly followed the orders of CGMT MH to set their goals.

·        In Telecom wing, at least this wrong policy was implemented uniformly, but in Finance wing Shri. Vivek Mahavar, GM Fin Mumbai has applied it on pick and choose basis and even female comrades were compelled to join the new place of posting by rejecting their refusal on genuine grounds and only Com. Mahadevan who is in good of his DGM and hence in good book of GM Fin Mumbai  has been retained as AO.

·        But, unofficially, Com. Mahadevan is given same charge of CAO ERP Mumbai in unofficial LA arrangements in Mumbai as he is using all the powers and authorities of CAO ERP Mumbai even after his reversion order as AO. We have brought to the notice of Shri. Vivek Mahavar, GM Fin Mumbai about regular absence of the Shri. Mahadevan with supporting documents but Shri. Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai continues with extreme love & affection only for Com. Mahadevan even though he has completed 24 years of service in Mumbai.

·        GM Fin Mumbai has forced other officers with stay of just two years at present place of posting including female comrades to join new assignment as CAO LA at Far away places in pick and choose attempt and on each and every occasion of discussion on this issue by SNEA MH, he has assured to relieve Com Mahadevan but with wise approach not giving time and date.

·        It is fact that one side Shri. Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai advocates that Com.  Mahadevan is best hand and expert in ERP and other hand he has constituted team of 4-5 best account wing officers to deal with long pending works of ERP section headed by Com. Mahadevan.

·        If we believe on stand of GM Fin Mumbai that Com. Mahadevan is expert then what made him to constitute separate team to deal with such pending issues needs to be ascertained and shows the extreme extra support only to Com Mahadevan and the please of all other executives  in CAO LA orders were not given consideration.   

·        Shri. Rajeev Soni Sr CEE Mumbai has taken stand that whatever orders he has issued are correct and he will not change any order in view of complaint by one of non-recognised association and when  .

·        When matter of violation of transfer policy guidelines was brought to notice of CEE Mumbai by SNEA MH and when GM HR Admn Mumbai has conveyed it in writing on basis of the complaint made by SNEA MH, till CEE Mumbai has not acted positively and has created and creating pressure on the officers to join new place of posting in LA arrangements.

·        It was more unfortunate that the officers under transfer in LA arrangements who got Regular promotion were given posting at the transferred SSA and their juniors were retained in the same SSA as it was posting on where it is as it basis and many of comrades have expressed their feeling on this injustice to them.  

·        In short, over the period of last four months, this tool of looking After arrangements was used by Circle Management as very useful tool to supress the voice of SNEA against injustice to executives and under pressure of Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH this looking After arrangement was used to create more and more difficulties to  executives in Maharashtra Circle and  all steps were exercised by these officers in Circle management with wrong and extremely biased interpretation that Executives do not have right to refuse the Looking After Arrangements.

·        But finally the stand of SNEA MH has been confirmed by BSNL Corporate Office and it has been clearly conveyed in this letter that every executives has right to refuse the Looking After arrangement and management has to accept such refusals under looking After Arrangements for whatever reason given by the concerned officer  and management cannot compel them to accept LA arrangements and shortage if any may be filled up by local arrangements

·        Thus, with prolonged and single handled fight by SNEA MH, finally, the justice prevails for all the executives in Maharashtra Circle and this is victory of the executives under banner of SNEA in their fight against deliberate injustice by certain officers in Circle Management.    

·        Now the officers who were compelled to accept Looking After Arrangements and have joined new place of posting under such compulsions created by management may submit their fresh representation for repatriation to parent SSA, if they wish to do so by quoting these guidelines and send it through proper channel.

·        SNEA MH will pursue for its consideration of repatriation of the officers to parent SSAs in respect of the officers were forcefully relieved by Circle Management rejecting their refusal requests.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to all the executives in Maharashtra Circle and certain officers in Circle Management who stood behind the fight of SNEA against injustice to executives and directly and indirectly supported SNEA to give justice to the executives in Maharashtra Circle.

·        This prolonged fight and results thereof gives clear signal that no one can continue dictatorship in BSNL and everybody has to follow the rules and only it is matter of time taken in settlement of grievances created under such deliberate attempts, but finally truth wins.

·        All these Hon MPs are from Maharashtra State and have shown concern about the executives and non-executives of BSNL.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks and gratitude to all these Hon MPs for giving concern & extending support to the demands of AUIB thereby raising the voice of executives and non-executives of BSNL at the Top Most level and this will definitely give way for implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL.

 10 AuG 18: AGM Pers I BSNL CO issued revised orders for superannuation as DEs who were promoted in recent promotion orders. Letter <<<>>>

·        These are the lucky officers, who got promotion as DE just before one day of their superannuation retirement.

·        Even though they were promoted as DE/AGM and also joined duties as DE/AGM, but due to administrative reasons their retirement was conveyed as SDE.

·        Now, same has been corrected and their superannuation retirement is issued as DE/AGM and given more respectful superannuation retirement and now their retirement benefits will be settled in cadre of DE/AGM.

Letter <<<>>>

·        SNEA MH congratulates all these JTOs promoted as SDEs and retained in Maharashtra Circle and conveys them all the best for their new assignment within Maharashtra circle.

·        Earlier, BW section has taken stand that in case of excess SDEs, the senior will be posted out of Circle and hence all these SDEs promoted from MH Circle were posted to AP and J & K Circle. But in later orders some of JTO Civil from AP Circle were also promoted.

·        Due such discrimination among junior /senior there was much unrest among the newly promoted SDEs who were transferred out of MH Circle and there was fear in mind of juniors that in case of change from senior to junior may be shifted out of MH Circle.

·        But the matter was vigorously pursued by SNEA at all levels from Circle to CHQ and one special meeting was arranged with Shri. Abhay Kumar, CGM BW BSNL Delhi in leadership of Com. P. P. Rao, AGS SNEA HQ, Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH, Com Sutrakar CP SNEA MP, Com Khan ACS SNEA MP and the grievances of all these comrades were brought to the notice of CGM BW and finally he has assured to look into the representations of all the comrades sympathetically. 

·        SNEA leaders have handed over the guidelines on posting of officers on promotions and we have also requested not to disturb the juniors who were posted in same Circle in view of up gradation of posts and relatively increase of posts in all the Circles.

·        It is glad to see that request made by individuals and SNEA leaders have been given consideration by CGM BW and all nine newly promoted SDEs posted out of Maharashtra Circle are now retained in Maharashtra Circle.

·        SNEA MH conveys thanks and gratitude towards Shri. Abhay Kumar CGM BW BSNL CO and his BW Team for giving due consideration to request by individual and persuasion by SNEA MH as policy matter.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Com K Sebastin GS SNEA CHQ, Com. P. P. Rao, AGS SNEA HQ, Com A. Chandrasekhar AGS SNEA HQ, Com Sutrakar CP SNEA MP and Com Khan ACS SNEA MP for taking sincere and devoted efforts and giving justice to all these comrades.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks and gratitude to Shri. Kumar Manoj CE Civil Mumbai for his support to these comrades and also recommending all these request for retention in MH Circle with full justification.

·        SNEA MH appreciates sincere and devoted efforts taken by Com Abhay Kesarkar JS NRU SNEA MH, Com Santosh Bhalerao BS SNEA ACE Pune, Com Sameer Shinde, DS SNEA ACE Mumbai, Com. Santosh Deshpande DP SNEA ACE Pune and Com. M. A. Wase Ex JS NRU SNEA MH for consolidating the grievances of these comrades and pursing it at all levels till getting desired results.



 6 AuG 18: In very positive gesture by the Circle Management, towards the young comrades in Maharashtra Circle, it is glad to see that all the request of 34 JTOs under Rule 8 transfer to different Circe have been approved by CGMT MH Circle and all these request are being forwarded to respective Circles for their consent and accepting these Rule 8 requests. List <<<>>>

·        SNEA Maharashtra was pursuing this issue continuously and it was one of the important agenda points of formal Meeting had with CGMT MH and CGMT MH was kind enough to assure that the Rule 8 request transfers will be issued on joining of new JTOs.

·        Out of 34 JTOs who have got the request transfers, some are recruited under PWD Category and were badly in need of transfers to be with their family members and at their home town.

·        Thereafter also SNEA MH was continuously pursuing this matter and finally by keeping assurances given by CGMT MH all pending Rule 8 transfers are given consideration as proposal is approved by CGMT MH and further process for getting consent from concerned Circles is started and the letters will be sent to these circles by end of this week.

·        With this approval , all the Request under Rule 8 transfers out of Maharashtra Circle are settled and practically Rule 8 transfer has become regular matter as left out cases if any, may be few, can be considered as routine matter.

·        Earlier SNEA MH has pursued all the Rule 9 cases of AOs and 42 AOs got posting to their choice Circle and now the rule 8 request of all JTOs have been given consideration in equal treatment to one and all. 

·        SNEA MH congratulates all these JTOs for getting transfer to their choice/Home Circle and wish them best grand success in new assignment, which they will get in choice circle within few days.

·         SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks and gratitude to Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH Circle, Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai, Shri. B.A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai, Shri. B. P. Tambat AGM Estt Mumbai and Shri. V.J. Bhandirge AD Staff B Mumbai and his team of staff section for keeping the words and main giving relief to all these JTOs who were waiting for their Rule 8 transfers for last 8-10 months.


 4 AuG 18:  State level Football Match on “grant of VCs” is now converted as National level Foot Ball Match:  The football match on grant of VCs for posting order within Maharashtra Circle in respect of 11 SDEs on their DE Regular promotion which was played as state level match between Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai & his team has now become “National Match” as matter has been now referred to GM Personal BSNL CO and CVO BSNL as refry of the match.

·        SNEA MH has requested Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH Circle to resolve this conflict and make permanent arrangements to avoid such unwanted delay and make it routine procedure. Letter <<<>>>

·        But unfortunately the intervention of Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH could not settle this dispute/conflict  and both the GMs are firm on their stand and hence  the promotion order of 11 SDEs promoted as DE could not be issued even after 15 days of promotion order by BSNL Corporate Office.

·        Com Abhay Kesarkar JS SNEA MH and CS SNEA MH have discussed this matter separately with Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai

·        Before meeting GM HR Admn Mumbai we have discussed with Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai about the status of pending VCs and issuing promotion order of 11 DEs. Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai informed that file has been sent to GM Vigilance before one week and same has not been received and hence he is not aware about the case.

·        Then we have taken update from GM Vigilance Mumbai about the pending file as quoted by DGM HR Mumbai, but he informed that said file has been sent back immediately with comments and after elaborate discussions with GM HR Admn Mumbai and even with DGM HR Mumbai

·        We have brought to notice that DGM Admn Mumbai says that he has not received file back then GM Vig Mumbai informed that file has been sent back and not at all pending in his office.

·        Then we have met GM HR/Admn Mumbai and informed him that GM Vig Mumbai says file is sent and DGM HR Mumbai says file is not received and matter also is not cleared.

·        GM HR Admn Mumbai confirmed that file has been received back by his office but the reply given by GM Vig Mumbai is not as required by his office for issuing DE posting orders with MH Circle.

·        Hence, with consent of CGMT MH, the letter has been sent to GM Personal BSNL CO with copy to CVO BSNL seeking clarification about the facts where VC in format is required for issuing promotion orders within Circle and if not then why such conditions are put in promotion orders. GM HR Admn also added that his office is pursuing the matter with concerned officers and he was optimistic that clarification will be issued by GM Pers at the earliest

·        We requested him to issue the promotion orders of these 11 officers, and let the clarification come from BSNL CO and this clarification will make the further process easy and it is not good to keep these officers under tension for no mistake on their part.

·        In response, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that already it has been late and it will not affect much if it is delayed for one or two days more. He directed us if Vigilance cell conveys that VC is not withheld against name of each officer even by email as done in earlier cases, he will issue the posting order immediately and directed us to take up matter with GM Vigilance for email VCs and also at Delhi for early clearance with assurance to issue posting order with reply for any of the office.

·        GM HR Admn Mumbai states that when Vigilance section has given clearance in separate columns that No DC is pending, No penalty is pending against name of each officer then what is problem in writing VC status is clear or VC is not withheld against each name in columns.

·        He was of the opinion that when BSNL CO has written that CGM shall issue promotion orders subject to VC and no pendency of VC/DC or penalty and competent authority to grant VC at Circle level is GM Vigilance Mumbai who is not ready to give VCs in clear words.

·         We requested GM HR/Admn Mumbai that orders can be issued subject to VCs then he pointed out fingers at condition of VCs in DE promotion order. But on our pursuance that already it has been informed by Vigilance Cell that VC is not with held in letter, but GM HR/Admn Mumbai insisted for such remark against name of each SDE promoted and not as general remark in the letter

·        In conclusion, GM HR Admn Mumbai has assured to have personal talk with concerned officers on Monday and get clarification issued and also assured for posting order on Monday.

·        We have again taken up matter with GM Vigilance Mumbai but he informed that he has already confirmed from office of CVO BSNL that no VC is required at Circle level posting orders when once same has been granted for DPC at BSNL CO. Also, his office can grant VCs only for Circle level DPCs like TBP, but his office is not competent and empowered to grant VCs for DPCs conducted at BSNL CO. He expressed his inability to meet the demand by GM HR Admn Mumbai even for sending by email as it is not at all required

·        When we brought to his notice that matter has been referred to BSNL CO, GM Vig Mumbai informed that he is aware about it and he will not have any issue in issuing VCs as required by GM HR Admn Mumbai but unless he gets directions from CVO BSNL, he could not do so.

·        We informed GM Vig Mumbai that due to this dispute the 11 newly promoted DEs are under tension and worried about their promotion, GM Vig Mumbai informed that it will not affect the promotion of these officers and hence no need to worry. Now only action required is on part of GM HR Admn Mumbai and nothing is pending on his part.

·         In conclusion of discussions, GM Vig Mumbai firmly assured that matter will be resolved by coming Monday and if required he also will speak to CVO BSNL so that matter is cleared once for all

·        Thus, even after intervention of the powerful CGMT MH, the conflict between GM HR Admn Mumbai and GM Vig Mumbai is not settled and now matter has been referred to GM Pers and CVO BSNL.

·        Thus, the State level Football Match on grant of VCs between two state level teams of GM HR Admn Mumbai & GM Vigilance Mumbai has now become “National Level Football Match” as the football is now kicked off to BSNL CO Delhi. 

·        Let us hope that the officers at BSNL CO will not become third team of this “Office Football Game to pay football. At least the officers in BSNL CO works are refry/judge in this conflict and settle the dispute /conflict by issuing clear-cut clarification on the subject and henceforth posting orders within Maharashtra Circle will not be delayed on such petty issues and conflict.

·        It is unfortunate that when BSNL has to fight against the enemies in Telecom sector to strengthen BSNL, our senior officers are not able to settle the conflict among them on such petty issue and intervention of CGMT MH also do not settle the issue and what message will be penetrating to the below level officers due to such conflict working that to be on petty dispute by senior officers of BSNL thereby wasting useful talent and emery on such conflict.

·        When senior level officer are unable to resolve the issues, then how  one should expect such wise actions at below level and how can BSNL fight with steep competition in Telecom Market with such internal disputes and culture thereof is really under question

·        However, from all these discussions and persuasion by SNEA MH, at different levels, we are hopeful that GM personal will issue clarification on Monday and accordingly the long awaited DE promotion and posting order within MH Circle will be issued by Monday itself and these officers could enjoy the long awaited promotion. Let us hope for the best.

·        All DS/COBs and SNEA activists are appealed to look into these cases and to send their SCRs and VCs to AGM Estt Mumbai in respect of the officers working in their SSA and whose name appears in this list and also to intimate where about of any of the SDE mentioned in the list.

  3 AuG 18:  AGM Estt Mumbai calls for missing APRs of 12 SDEs from seniority list no 8 for SDE to DE DPCs for which process has been started at BSNL CO. Letter <<<>>>

·        Concerned officers/DS SNEA are requested to act fast and send missing APRs details to AGM Estt Mumbai immediately because for want of this information SCR of all SDEs in list no 8 from Maharashtra Circle is held up.

·        If MH Circle sends this data incomplete to BSNL CO, then the names missing will be excluded in the promotion order and later it takes moths together to issue DE promotions in left out cases as seen in the recent promotion order.

·        Hence all concerned should act immediately and send missing APRs immediately.

 2 AuG 18:  Sr CEE Mumbai issued LA order for one EE Electrical by posting him at Kolhapur. <<<>>>

·        Though as per the guidelines, the LA orders are issued for 179 days, but again CEE Mumbai issues order just for 89 days keeping officer always under tension of uncertainty.

·        The last spell of EE LA is over on 22/06/2018 and fresh LA order is issued w.e.f . 31/07/2018, and in very casual approach no arrangement has been done for intervening period of 40 days.

·        Even though CGMT MH has instructed for issuing order for 179 days in formal meeting with SNEA MH, wherein CEE Mumbai also was present, and by taking CGMT MH as granted for all his actions, CEE Mumbai issues order for 90 days period instead of 179 days with daring violation of BSNL Guidelines against instructions of CGMT MH.


 2 AuG 18:  DGM Admn BSNL CO New Delhi issued orders conveying approval for Business class Air Travel of HAG level officer for official works. Letter <<<>>>

·        It is unfortunate that such decisions are taken when the financial condition of BSNL has been reached at extra critical level and Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH is pressing hard for its improvement and has expressed serious concern about this critical condition.

·        Here GM HR Admn Mumbai has taken decision to reduce medical bills by 12%, OLA/Uber Taxies are allotted for some of SSA, Electricity bills are reduced, BSNL Corporate office was not able to pay lenience fee of last month,  BSNL Corporate Office has reduced yearly limit for medical reimbursement, when BSNL officers and staff are appealed by CGMT MH for donations of certain amount willingly for procurement of e-KYC machine as BSNL is unable to procure it to required quantity, Some of Exchanges are down as GM Fin Mumbai has stopped the reimbursement of Disel Cards, EOIs. Security Gaurds are reduced up to 30%, the salary of Gr A and above officers is shifted to 5th of Month, and everybody is teaching to the middle and lower level officers and staff about curtailment of expenditure, but when it is their turn to save BSNL Money or contribute to BSNL then no action is taken on their part.

·        On the contrary such decision to upgrade the economy class to Business class Air travel are taken by constituting committee of the same cadre officers as if the financial conditions are not applicable to these officers and they even do not think about poor financial condition of BSNL.

·        The picture is being created that improvement of financial conditions, is responsibility of poor Staff & lower/middle level officers by scarifies of all their dues and benefits.

·        We should not be surprised if these officers will go to extent that one day, we all will be appealed to forgo salary for few months to “Save BSNL” and at the same time, nothing will be done by these officers to maintain minimum ethical level required before giving such advice i.e. "I have done and you follow.”  

·        We have nothing to differ about the dignity of these senior officers in BSNL and it needs to be maintained w.r.t the post held by such senior officer, but one wise has to think where such up gradation from Economy class to Business class is required or these officers needs to stop travel till it is not extreme urgent and required and if required travel by Train or by Air in economical class.

·        But it is unfortunate that “who cares” attitude continues in BSNL and this is one of the decision taken by the officers with such “Who Cares” Attitude and it has created unrest among the executives and non-executives of BSNL with thought that where the financial crises are only applicable to claims of Executives and non-executives and not applicable for these senior officers.  

·        Already matter has been raised by AUIB CHQ and hopefully such decisions will be kept in abeyance and initiatives will be taken by BSNL Management and senior officers for curtailment of expenditure and saving BSNL money by setting example by stopping avoidable expenses starting from self and just not giving advises to others and mainly to below level staff and officers.

·        Otherwise, it will not be morally correct on part of these responsible officers leading the BSNL and giving advice only to us for reduction of expenses even on day-to-day extreme urgent expenses and continuing their expenses as if they are not responsible and concerned with financial condition of BSNL.

·        Let us hope such decisions will be withdrawn and will not be taken in future till the financial condition of BSNL is improved rather immediate action will be taken to stop all type of travels including positional vehicles for all officers and hundreds of crores of rupees of BSNL being spent of travels all over India is saved and utilized for increasing the financial condition of BSNL.

 2 AuG 18:  DGM TRG BSNL CO New Delhi  issued orders for extension of Trade Apprenticeship to ITI Holders under “BSNL Swavalambi Scheme 2016” for further two years. Letter <<<>>>

·        This scheme gives carrier opportunity to ITI Holders to gain knowledge and on hand experience of telecom working.

·        It is also beneficial to BSNL as it gives helping hand to BSNL field officers and staff, which is badly required after recent one-sided reduction of DGs and EOIs. 

·        During first year of apprentice the student will get stipend at the rate of 70% of wages of skilled workers and it will be increased to 80% in second year.

·        Though this scheme has been approved for last two years, it has been not utilized in Maharashtra Circle even though SNEA MH has raised issue time to time.

·        SNEA MH will again take up matter with CGMT MH, for utilization of this scheme in the interest of BSNL and ITI students in Maharashtra Circle as their interaction with BSNL will generate new relations with local customers increasing brand image of BSNL and at the same the filed officers/Staff suffering in absence of such helping hands will get good support from these ITI Holder students.  

·        Depending on requirement of such supporting hands to field Staff/Officers, all DS/COBs concerned may take up matter with SSA Heads for utilization of this scheme in the larger interest of BSNL.
