15 OCT 21:  AGM Pers BSNL CO issued letter conveying opening of Window for next Online Transfer Portal from 16/10/2021 to 30/10/2021. Letter <<<>>>

·        It is unfortunate that the requests submitted in earlier two Quarters are not yet issued and if issued then are issued partially.

·        Many executives who have applied for the Request Transfers in last both the quarters are till unaware about the status of their earlier request as nothing is updated on the subject, where their request will be given consideration or is rejected, but window is opened for next quarter.

·        SNEA MH along with other Circles of SNEA have drawn attention of SNEA CHQ leaders at Delhi about disparities created in consideration of OTP Transfers and hopefully the pending Request Transfers of executives who have applied in last quarter will be issued shortly

 

15 OCT 21: AGM TRG/IR BSNL CO issued additional guidelines for utilization of 602 apprentices under Apprenticeship Act under Sales and Marketing for CM activities. Letter <<<>>>

·        When other Circles are utilising the manpower under Apprentice Act and reducing work load since last few years, in our Maharashtra Circle even no single person is engaged under Apprenticeship Act.

·        When the last guidelines were issued on 19/09/2021, the letter concerned has been endorsed by S&M CM section Mumbai and no specific initiatives are taken in this regards for actual utilization of this readily available manpower.

·        SNEA MH has taken up matter with CGMT MH and he has directed GM HR Admn Mumbai to take further course of action on utilization of apprentice manpower.

·        Thereafter, we have reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai in two meeting is last two weeks on this proposal, but as usual there is nothing done concrete by HR/Admn section to give conclusive shape to this very good proposal to wherein supporting hands will be available to JTOs/SDEs who are facing hardship in absence of any supporting hand after mass VRS for Non-executives working earlier. 

·        This will also save expenditure being done by BSNL on contract person where BSNL is not able to get desired utilization against expenditure being made by BSNL. 

·        SNEA MH will again take up matter with CGMT MH so that early and concrete steps are taken for actual utilization of apprenticeship manpower not only for S&M CM section, but for all units and verticals wherever it is required as used by many other Circles.

 

 

 

14 OCT 21:  AGM Pers BSNL CO issued transfer order of SDE in Telecom as per request received in Quarter Jul 2021 wherein request of three SDEs in MH Circle are given consideration to their choice Circle while two SDEs from other Circles are posted to MH Circle as per their request at Own cost. Letter <<<>>>

·        The Online Transfer Portal was started in April 2021 and since then this is first Transfer order wherein all Request from Non-Tenure to Non-Tenure Circles are given consideration.

·        It is seen that some of request are not included in this list and SNEA CHQ will be pursuing for it.

·        In the similar manner, the requests submitted in next quarter i.e. QE Sept 2021 will also be given consideration hopefully before opening of window for next quarter from 16/10/2021.

13 OCT 21:  DGM Legal Mumbai issued consolidated list of Executives who have got retention at present working place on different grounds but with clever mind the names of the executives who are retained on administrative grounds are not included in this list. Letter <<<>>>

·        There is nothing new in this list and all these retention are given on basis of critical illness, ward studying in 12th Standard and immunity as Office Bearer of associations as per the prevailing guidelines on the subject.

·        There was no demand for publishing such known list from any section and the reasons for retention are well mentioned in the orders issued time to time.

·        Rather SNEA MH has continuously taken up matter for retention of certain executives on name of administrative grounds that to be for years together and to have substitute arrangements so that these executives can be relieved at least in next phase of transfer orders.

·        This has been principally agreed by CGMT MH in last three meetings held by SNEA MH with him wherein CGMT MH has issued direction to GM HR Admn Mumbai on each occasion to write to all SSA/BA/Unit Heads with list of executives being retained on administrative grounds with directions for making substitute arrangements as no further retention to these executives will be granted on administrative grounds.

·        But as usual, these directions of CGMT MH are shown dust bin till today and this consolidated list of retentions granted is published cleverly by excluding names of executives retained on administrative grounds diverting basic issue and concern raised by association and may be eye wash for CGMT MH that his directions are being followed.

·        This is one more attempt on part HR section to create unrest among the executives that these many executives are granted retention and they are being harassed by the transfers, when these executives are granted retention by HR section on basis of prevailing guidelines.

·        Nowadays, HR section manpower is being used on such wasteful and to certain extent unwanted works and the genuine works like consideration of genuine request of individuals by restoration of request transfer orders kept in abeyance,  AGM LA Orders, JTO/JAO Rule 8/9 transfers etc are deliberately delayed stating the reason of workload to executives in HR section.  

·        SNEA MH will take up these issues with CGMT MH accordingly and see that HR section gives proper concern to his instructions and his directions are always not shown dust bin creating need of discussion of issue with repeated reminders to CGMT MH.

 5 OCT 21: DGM Legal Mumbai issued long awaited DGM LA orders wherein 35 AGMs are continued to work as DGM LA while fresh 15 AGMs are giving higher responsibility as DGM under looking after arrangements.  Letter <<<>>>

·        The last DGM LA order was issued in Nov 2021 i.e. about one year before and thereafter two illegal extension was issued as there was no gap after 179 day up to 31/08/2021. Thereafter neither extension was issued nor fresh order was issued and during intervening period all these officers were compelled to work as DGM LA without any formal orders.

·        In this order total 46 AGMs are given higher responsibility as DGM and 35 AGMs will continue their DGM LA from last spell while 15 new AGMs are given higher responsibility of DGMs under look after arrangements as it is where it is basis. 

·        This is classic example of lethargic working of Staff section and when the revised order is issued after period of one year, the VC of the Eleven AGMs is not yet received, when time of four to five months has been taken to issue this order.

·        SNEA MH has continuously pursued this matter with GM HR Admn Mumbai and CGMT Mumbai for last three months and it was assured to issue early DGM LA Orders and last reason informed was non-receipt of VCs.

·        The VCs called by Staff section in first phase were received on 13/09/2021, but it took 20 days’ time for staff section to finally issued order that to be with partial VC.

·        As per this order, the VC of about Eleven AGMs is till not received and they cannot take over charge of DGM and hence some of executives feared about not issuing the VC and are curious about reasons thereof. 

·        In this regards, it is to inform that the VC of these Eleven AGMs was called by staff section late i.e. on 27/09/2021 and it is natural that it will be received late. Hence till today, VC is not received till toady and this order was approved and issued on 04/10/2021 subject to receipt of VC.

·        The process of getting VC which takes minimum one to two week’s as on receipt of list from staff section, the Vigilance section has to be collect it from SSAs and then get its approval from Vigilance Cell BSNL Corporate Office. The VC of these left out officers is expected in this week and hence they can take over charge either subject to VC or on receipt of VC.  

·        It is seen that all the post of DGMs justified as per norms fixed by staff section Mumbai are not filled and hence some of junior AGMs who were working as DGM LA as per earlier order are reverted now as senior AGM has joined that BAs.

·        Hopefully such issues will be taken by BA Heads for better operation of BAs and genuine representation received if any will be pursued by SNEA.

·        As per discussions of SNEA MH with GM HR Admn Mumbai and CGMT MH over the period, now after issuing this DGM LA orders, the orders for AGM LA also will be issued from Circle Office centrally for all SSAs to fill vacant posts of AGMs.

·        By taking into consideration the efficient working of staff section and overall process involved, hopefully the AGM LA orders will be issued before end of Oct 2021.

4 OCT 21:  Meeting with Shri. S.V. Nakhale GM HR Admn Mumbai: Delegation of SNEA led by Shri. M.N. Kotambe, ACS SNEA MH and consisting Shri. Abhay Kesarkar, JS CE SNEA MH, Shri. Rakesh Roshan, DT SNEA CO Mumbai and Shri. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH, had meeting with Shri. S.V. Nakhale, GM HR Admn Mumbai on 23/09/2021 at 1630 hrs in his chamber and discussed different pending HR issues and genuine individual cases of executives in Maharashtra Circle. The details of discussions is as follows.

1.     Status on Pending HR issues discussed in meeting with CGMT MH on 09/09/2021: We have drawn attention of the GM HR Admn Mumbai on the following HR issues discussed with Shri. Ramakant Sharma CGMT MH on 09/09/2021 wherein CGMT MH has directed GM HR Admn Mumbai to take action accordingly and no action has been taken by Staff section

a.            Restoration of Request Transfers from Non-tenure Stations: SNEA has drawn attention of GMHR towards undue delay in restoration of request transfers from Non-Tenure stations to Non-tenure stations and unrest among these executives who are waiting for releasing orders kept in abeyance.  We have registered our protest on undue delay in restoration of transfer’s orders.  We again shared sample list of one to one Mutual Request transfers and how chain transfer can be implemented in chain by putting minimum substitute i.e. one substitute for implementation of pending Request transfers from different SSAs. We narrated that out of about 70 request transfers pending, 50 can be considered with mutual transfers or by posting minimum substitute. We also added that some of executives have applied for fresh own cost transfers and they can be used for posting as substitute for consideration of these pending request transfers. Thus we have made it clear that one to one substitute will be required in only few cases and this figure may reduce if the list of request transfers is published as assured to CGMT MH. WE added that since last fortnight no action has been taken for publishing list of request transfers pending though it has been assured by him to CGMT MH. SNEA delegation again submitted list of such request transfers to GM HR Admn Mumbai and he received this copy and kept in his Dak file on his table.  We reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai that SNEA MH has submitted this list 2-3 times and he has received this list from CGMT MH for more than two times and every time he has kept copy of said list in same folder, but no action has been taken for consideration of these requests. We narrated that in our meeting with CGMT MH on 09/09/2021 wherein GM HR Admn was present, it was directed to take action for consideration of all pending request transfers from Non-Tenure stations, but till no action has been taken and we find it deliberate attempt to create unrest among executives waiting for their transfers. We have narrated to GM HR Admn Mumbai that on issuing transfer orders on 22/05/2021, some of the executives have shifted their family new place of posting under fear of rainy season and thereafter orders were kept in abeyance for last Four months and these executives are facing hardship in continuing duties at present work place. We have narrated classic example of Mrs. Monali Wangal JTO Aurangabad how she is victim of delay in restoration of request transfers and how she is compelled to work at Aurangabad when her households are shifted to Nagpur in early June 2021. GM HR Admn Mumbai noted her name in his diary, we requested GM HR Admn that instead of noting such names, he should she that all the request transfers are restored without any further delay. We also stressed that staff section is issuing pick and choose request transfers of executives who are visiting to Circle Office and meeting different Officers. We appreciate concern shown by management to grievances of these executives, but why there is need of each and every executive to visit to Circle Office Mumbai to represent his/her grievances and why his office is not giving consideration to all pending Request transfers in uniform policy manner.  In response, GM HR Admn Mumbai agreed that there is much delay in restoration of request transfers and added that no action has been taken till today even after directions of CGMT MH in last two meetings of SNEA, but assured that action for consideration of request transfers will be taken shortly. We have informed him that CGMT MH is agreeing, you as GM HR Admn is agreeing and data is ready with AD Staff Mumbai but till matter is not moving is reason of mass unrest. We have informed GM HR Admn that the affected executives are calling AD staff Mumbai and they are informing that they do not have any instructions and proposal of transfers can be processed if they get orders from DGM legal Mumbai. If these executives calls DGM Legal Mumbai he is informing that no request transfers will be issued now and hopefully it will be issued in March 2022. We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai about negative information being spread by DGM legal Mumbai about consideration of request transfers when DGM legal also was present when CGMT MH has directed to give consideration to request transfers. Though GM HR Admn listened our narration carefully, he said nothing about such attitude of DGM Legal, but he firmly assured that the request transfers will be given consideration shortly. We requested him to give consideration by end of Sept 2021, he responded that he will try for it but cannot assure firmly for restoration of all request transfers by end of Sept 20. But he firmly assured that he will try for restoration of request transfers at the earliest. We stressed to look into issues seriously and resolve this issue as only this is the issue pending out of pending transfers within Circle and due to undue delay it has become burning issue among the executives who are waiting for restoration of their request transfers since last six months. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he is also seriously worried about these transfers as many executives are visiting his office for consideration of pending request transfers and he also want to get rid of these visits by restoration of these pending request transfers once for all.     

b.           Consideration of JAO/JTO Rule 8 /Rule 9 requests: We reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai that he has assured CGMT MH for early action on Rule 8 Transfers, but we have not seen any action on part of Staff section over the last fortnight. In response GM HR Admn informed that his office has written letter to PGM Pers BSNL CO for repatriation of JAOs who are on deputation to different Circle and assured that immediate action will be taken for relieving of JAOs on one to one basis. He shared the copy of letter he has written to PGM Pers BSNL CO Copy <<<>>>. We narrated that there are ample JAOs available in Maharashtra Circle and there is no meaning of relating it with repatriation of JAOs who are already working on deputation for years together. We once again reminded that the entire formalities of about Rule 8 transfers of majority of these 11 JAOs are completed in January 2021 itself and only formal orders are to be issued. There is much unrest among these affected JAOs who are waiting for their relieving flor last one year period and it is delayed by giving different reasons at different occasions and this is damaging image of Circle Management.  We brought to his notice that though he has written letter to BSNL CO, chances of its early response are less. Understanding seriousness of issue, GM HR Admn Mumbai has called PGM Personal BSNL CO from our meeting itself and requested for early orders for releasing of MH JAOs working on deputation. PGM Personal BSNL assured to give the reply at the earliest and directed GM HR Admn Mumbai to send details to DGM Pers BSNL CO. GM HR Admn Mumbai sent details to DGM Pers BSNL CO and also requested him to respond this letter at the earliest. After telephonic discussions with PGM/DGM Pers BSNL CO, the GM HR Admn Mumbai was optimistic and firm that he will get response from BSNL CO at the earliest. We also conveyed our consent for same that if we are getting early response from BSNL CO and concerned Circles, then we do not have any issue, but there is need of some time limit for overall issue. GM HR Admn Mumbai shared that as per his views entire process will be completed within month’s period and firmly assured that his office will take initiatives to relive all JAOs under Rule 8 transfers.  We have shared with him proposal showing the local substitute arrangements for relieving of these JAOs and how it should not be delayed for joining of JAOs on repatriation. Proposal for substitute arrangements <<<>>>.  The reliever JAOs if joining MH Circle may be posted in due course of time and with BA/SSA rearrangements issued recently, there is sufficient manpower available with SSAs/BAs to relieve these JAOs waiting under Rule 8 Transfers. We insisted for issuing relieving orders from Circle Office and by the time the some repatriated JAOs joins in MH Circle, these JAOs under Rule 8 transfer may be relieved with local arrangements or in some cases having acute shortage if any may be kept on hold till substitute JAO joins. We stressed that repatriation of JAOs should not be linked with issuing formal relieving order by Circle Office.  GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has received directions from CGMT MH to complete the process at the earliest and issue the Rule 8 Request Transfers as early as possible and firmly assured he is trying complete this process within month’s period. On JTO Rule 8 transfers, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that same also will be taken care after repatriation of JTOs of some JTOs. We have narrated that there are only five JTOs who are seeking Rule 8 transfer out of about 1800 JEs/JTOs/SDEs working in Maharashtra Circle. There is no JTO who is on Rule 9 transfer who may join MH Circle on repatriation after cancellation of Rule 9 transfers. We requested that the issue of JTO Rule 8 transfers is not having any relation with Rule 9 repatriation proposal and hence relieving orders of these JTOs should be issued at the earliest. We brought to notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai the difficulties and hardship faced by these JTOs as some of them have already shifted family on receipt of consent and assurance by new CGMT MH to issue all transfers in March 2021. But since then every time new idea is adopted for delaying JTO/JAO Rule 8 transfers and this happens when SNEA MH has cleared all unwanted doubts of shortage created by certain officers who are having bias against these JTOs/JAOs. We requested GM HR Admn to overcome these manmade hurdles and immediately issue the Rule 8 Transfers of five JTOs and give them relief from ongoing mental torture. We pleased that no JTOs should not be compelled for want of repatriation of Rule 9 JAOs/JTOs. Finally GM HR Admn Mumbai requested us to give him time of one month and firmly assured that all the request of JTOs and JAOs will be given consideration and he personally will look into it and see that the Rule 8 orders are issued in time bound manner. 

c.             Undue delay in issuing fresh DGM LA orders:  We have narrated issues related to the administrative complications due to undue delay in issuing DGM LA Orders. We have brought to the notice of GM HR Admn that the DGM LA orders were issued in Nov 2020 for 179 days and said period is already over in May 2021. But since then three illegal extension orders are issued and last such illegal extension was issued in July 2021 wherein DGM LA order of Nov 20 is illegally extended up to 31/08/2021. Since then all LA DGMs are working illegally as neither illegal extension order issued nor fresh DGM LA order is issued covering all earlier mistakes. We narrated that the matter is deliberately delayed and undecided for fresh order and extensions are proposed and given illegally without any break even after completion of 179 days. We have again brought to his notice that till 31/08/2021, there was illegal extension of DGM LA Orders but there after no even such illegal extension order is issued and all DGM are completing office works in capacity of DGM in an illegal manner under compulsions created by Staff Section Mumbai. In our meeting with CGMT MH it was reported that VC was not received from Vigilance section and now VC also is received on 13/09/2021 but till no order is issued for DGM LA and the officers concerned are kept in embarrassing situation. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that it is correct that VC has been received but till it is not received for some of DEs. He added that till there are issues as some of DEs have not yet joined at new place of posting and their names are in list of DGM LA. He also added that he is trying to post all DGM under LA on where it is as it is basis. If required only few transfers may be issued in DE Cadre for filling vacant post of DGMs. He informed that proposal has been finalized to better extent and he has to discuss it with CGMT MH as this involves posting of Many SSA Heads.  He further added that he is trying for early orders of DGM LA and assured that he will see that DGM LA orders with minimum transfers will be issued by end of Sept 2021. He further assured that henceforth the fresh/ revised LA Orders will be issued in time to avoid any such complications as seen now.

d.           Filling vacant post of AGMs/DEs throughout Maharashtra Circle Centrally from Circle Office Mumbai: SNEA delegation drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai towards not filling vacant post of AGMs/DEs as per Circle Seniority though he has assured to us in last two meetings. We added that said principle is followed for Civil /Electrical and account wing but not followed in Telecom wing.  GM HR Admn informed that works are being managed locally and LA orders for DEs/AGMs are issued locally by Unit/BA Heads. We narrated that this issue was discussed in meeting CGMT MH held on 09/09/2021 and CGMT MH has directed to issue AGM LA orders centrally from Circle Office. But till today no any action has been taken in this regards and disparity among executives continues. We have further brought to his notice that there is no uniformity in issuing AGM LA Orders and every Vertical/ SSA /BA has its own idea of seniority and many seniors are not given responsibility of AGMs but many juniors are given powers of DEs/AGMs against the policy and guidelines on this subject. We narrated in Circle Office also no uniformity is maintained wherein GM HR responded that it is up to vertical heads to decide and give AGM LA. We narrated that some of vertical heads are given more than justified post of AGMs and some have not given filled justified post of AGMs and this is reason for unrest among the concerned executives. We made it clear that matter cannot be resolved till the AGM LA Orders are issued centrally from Circle Office for all SSAs/BAs and Verticals. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the SDEs are not willing to move on transfers and hence there is no use of AGM LA Orders centrally and suggested to continue with existing AGM LA arrangements locally. We have made him clear that in case seniors are not willing to join new pace of posting as AGM LA, then to fill such vacant post the AGM LA orders at later stage may be issued from local seniors. If any senior from other SSA is willing to join AGM LA on transfers, he may be encouraged by administration. GM HR Admn Mumbai agreed to concern expressed by SNEA and assured that action will be taken for filling vacant post of AGMs centrally from Circle Office. We asked him time period for issuing AGM LA Orders, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that now the works of DGM LA are going on and on completion of works related DGM LA Orders, the work for issuing AGM/DE LA for Telecom wing also will be started and orders will be issued centrally by Circle office Mumbai. 

e.            Disparity in Granting immunity to OBs of Associations:  We reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai about the discussions held on this issue and directions issued by GGMT MH to review this issue of direct violation of guidelines on Immunity for misuse of immunity to avoid long stay transfers by Shri. Azar Shaikh DS AIGETOA Beed and direct involvement of DGM legal Mumbai in these activities. We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai that though CGMT MH has issued directions on 09/09/2021 to get the matter reviewed, no action has been taken even to review the case of such utter misuses and efforts are being done to save skin. We also brought to notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai that he has submitted false information in the meeting with CGMT MH that the request transfer after grant of immunity at Beed to Shri. Azar Shaikh to Satara was given because his son was studying in 12th Standard. We have shown GM HR the documentary evidences about wrong information given to him by his subordinate which he has shared with CGMT MH. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has shared the information whatever he has received from below level. We narrated that being very responsible officer he should not have blind belief on below officers and should confirm authenticity of information being received by him. Some individuals in his office are paying with the rules and guidelines for self-benefits and same should not be supported by Management. We made it clear that we have no issue if such illegal grant of immunity is permitted officially and then request transfer is given consideration as official procedure, but it should be equally applicable to all such requests. We have seen that GM HR Admn Mumbai has understood the issue to depth but was trying to safeguard malpractices done by his below level officers in processing the file by hiding the facts of grant of immunity. We added that there is total lethargy to book culprits when issue of misuse is fully established. We conveyed GM HR Admn Mumbai that we expect investigation of matter and action against who are involved in this malpractices and GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to look into it. We have made it clear that if no action is taken on his part, we will not hesitate in taking it again with CGMT MH or higher level. We have elaborated how the certain officers in his office have played biased role in granting immunity even when the formal approval of the District Body is not issued till today, but immunity has been granted prior to it with direct violation of policy guidelines for granting immunity to OB of any association. We have brought to notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai that his officers are working for allowing misuse of grant of immunity to certain OBs and the similar request by Shri. S.N. Jirvankar DS SNEA Jalna is not given consideration even though it is well within the guidelines of immunity. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that Shri. Jirvankar is excess AGM in Jalna SSA and hence he is transferred to Kalyan SSA being senior in stay and now changed posting to Raigad SSA on administrative grounds.  We have brought to his notice that Shri. S.N. Jirvankar also may be given equal treatment of retention on immunity ground at Jalna and then transfer him to Aurangabad as applied to Shri. Azar Shaikh. We also narrated that the junior in stay are already transferred to Aurangabad and Shri. Jirvankar is derived from request transfer from Jalna to Aurangabad and even from retention at Jalna as DS SNEA Jalna.  This is totally biased approach by management in dealing with the issues related to granting immunity.  We also suggested that under chain transfers it is quite possible to cancel transfer order of Shri. Jirvankar to Raigad SSA and consider his request to Aurangabad SSA. We firmly demanded whatever is the policy adopted should be equally adopted for all and it should not be applied on pick and choose basis. Finally GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to look into the cases of disparity in granting immunity to OBs in view of serious concern raised by SNEA MH. 

f.              Issues related to Calculation of SSA wise Account wing executive’s strength: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn on issue of excess transfer of JAOs/AOs from SSAs like Wardha, Yavatmal, Jalna and Kalyan SSA that the minimum required JAOs/AOs in these SSAs. We narrated him how these excess transfers of JAOs/AOs from these SSAs have created shortage of executives in these SSAs. We have again shared with him classic example of Kalyan SSA, where practically only Nine JAOs/AOs are working against 13 post of JAOs/AOs justified as per norms decided by Circle Office. Working Details of JAOs/AOs in Kalyan SSA <<<>>>. We once again infirmed that now Goa SSA is having excess JAOs/AOs than the sanctions AOs/JAOs and this disparity may be corrected by cancellation of the excess transfers orders. We reminded him that CGMT MH himself has directed to review the working strength and find out how the excess transfers are issued from these SSAs. GM HR Admn informed that he is aware about the case and assured to look into it. We further requested to look into request submitted by the AOs/JAOs for retention at the present SSAs or request for change of SSA as per revised norms and GM HR Admn informed that he will check the possibilities for accommodation of such requests.

g.           Consideration of request for change of SSA at Own cost: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai towards the requests given by executives under transfers to SSAs having shortage of executives at company cost to change of SSA at Own cost. We have submitted list of all such requests for change of SSA in our meeting with CGMT MH wherein said list was given to GM HR Admn Mumbai to looking into these transfers. We have again submitted the said list and requested GM HR Admn Mumbai to look into these transfers in the interest of BSNL as these transfers will be at own cost and also in the interest of the executives so that they can take care of their family issues and at the same time they can take care of office works with more sincerity. List of requests for change of SSA. <<<>>> After going through the requests for change of SSA, GM HR Admn informed us that he will not assure for consideration of all these requests , but will try to consider some requests in the interest of BSNL. We once again requested him that these requests will be interest of BSNL as well as in the interest of the concerned executives and pleased for consideration of all these requests.

h.            Clearing confusion on role of DGM Legal/DGM HR Mumbai: We have once again drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai on this issue discussed with CGMT MH where we have narrated concern in continuation of more than justified DGMs in his office and how DGM legal is illegally holding works of DGM HR and DGM HR is compelled to limit his area only to part of AGM Establishment. We requested to clear confusion created by allotment of works of HR section to DGM Legal Mumbai when one DGM HR Mumbai is already posted and taken over charge and why DGM legal is signing letters and holding charge of DGM HR needs to be cleared. We once again narrated that signing each and every transfer order with designation of DGM legal Mumbai has created confusion among the executives and other offices, as if this is not transfer order but it is a legal notice. We also narrated incident of biased working of DGM legal Mumbai in dealing with HR issues and harassment of executives faced due to his negative attitude on HR matters. We made it clear that till now we have bared with illegal and biased actions by DGM Legal but the frequency of issues created by him on HR matters have become reason for unrest among executives. We have narrated that all these issues were elaborately discussed in the meeting with CGMT MH and we also have submitted brief note on this subject about direct violation of guidelines in posting present DGM legal and illegally allotting him works of DGM HR and also giving him free hand to harass the executives. But GM HR Admn continued his old stand that all there DGMs i.e. Admn, HR and Legal are formally promoted as DGM but are continuing the works which they were doing as AGMs. He agreed that practically there is no proper allotment of work at DGM level and all these officers are doing works of AGM level only. We requested him to correct it as it is well within his powers and this AGM level working by DGMs is continued for last one year which cannot be justified now. We added that let the DGM HR function as DGM HR and let DGM Legal function as DGM legal and not intervene in HR activities as encroached now. We made it clear, the biased actions of DGM Legal in HR activities in recent past have become reason for our demand and also there is need to fill vacant post of DGMs in other verticals by reducing excess DGMs in HR Admn section. When equalization is being done by GM HR Admn for all other SSAs and BAs, there is need to start this equalization from his own office by reducing DGMs and giving excess DGMs to other verticals where no regular AGM/DGM is posted. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there is shortage of AGMs in HR Admn Section and hence three DGMs are working against one justified post of DGM in HR Admn section. We requested him to post justified AGMs but the excess DGMs should be reduced. DGMs should be equalized and mainly the works of DGM HR should be with DGM HR and should not be continued with illegal post of DGM legal created against the restructuring guidelines issued by BSNL CO. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he will discuss these issues again with CGMT MH and will decide accordingly.

i.              Issuing Official letter for change of tenure stations of Account wing: We reminded GM HR on the discussions on this issue with CGMT MH in last three meetings wherein he as GM HR Admn and CGMT MH have always agreed to concerned expressed by association about formal order for change of Tenure stations for Account wing executives and its equal applicability for all wings. We narrated that though this issue is discussed for last three months no action has been taken by his office for issuing formal orders. GM HR Admn Mumbai agreed for delay on his part in issuing formal order and once again noted this as important point in his diary and firmly assured us to issue formal order accordingly.

 

2.     Issues with calling options by Electrical wing for JTO/SDE Elect: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai on the HR issues of Electrical wing executives and recently Electrical wing Administration called willingness for filling vacant posts of JTOs/SDEs in Electrical wing at different locations. The said willingness calling letter is not published by Electrical wing on intranet and given direct email to respective Division office only. We also narrated that such dual activities at Electrical wing as well as at Staff section creates confusion among the executives. We also narrated that the willingness are not called by giving details of working executives, vacant posts and by publishing list of long stayed officers at particular location. We narrated our discussions with CE Electrical Mumbai wherein we have requested for giving consideration of all requests in well-defined policy manner.  We added that we have already requested CE Electrical Mumbai for dealing HR issues with the equal and transparent manner as being done for Telecom, Accounts and Civil wing.  GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he is aware about the issue and as per discussions with CGMT MH, he has called details from CEE Mumbai. He added that the justification of posts is to be done by Civil/Electrical/Account wing and posting of Officers is to be done by HR Admn Section. In this case also Electrical wing has to give the justified posts and details of working of Executives in Electrical wing and further course of action on calling willingness and issuing transfer orders will be done by HR section. We narrated that already Electrical wing has called for options and what will be its fate in present scenario. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there are certain issues in it and hence calling for fresh options is required and same will be called by his office. But he added that after receipt of data from Electrical wing the matter will be once again discussed with CGMT MH Circle and further course of action will be decided. In conclusion, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the transfer posting of Electrical wing also will be done as per transfer policy guidelines and after the review of the data received from Electrical wing, the matter will be finalized at the earliest and assured that he will take care of the concern expressed by association while issuing transfer posting of Electrical wing executives.

3.     Uniform applicability financial and administrative powers to IFAs as CAO or DGM: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai about deliberate issues created by his office by giving DGM designation to only one specific AO and all other are given designation as CAO even though some of them are working as IFAs in BAs. We demanded that there should not be disparity and equal treatment should be given to all IFAs either by giving these AOs as CAO or as DGM designation and present favoritism designation to some specific AOs should be stopped as it is damaging image of Circle Management. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that it is policy decision taken that the AO in Circle Office will be given designation as DGM and all other AOs designated as IFAs in SSAs/BAs will be given designation as CAO and this file is duly approved by CGMT MH with recommendations of GM Fin Mumbai. We raised objection about this policy pick and choose and conveyed that when PGM Pune which is heading top Category I BAs have CAO Level IFA what is need of DGM level IFAs in Circle Office that to be for only one DGM. We also narrated that only one AO is promoted as DGM and all other AOs are promoted as CAO and they are now reported to this AO designated as DGM. This happens against the willingness called by Staff section for filling vacant post of DGM FP Mumbai and this post is also kept vacant even after receipt of options from willing AOs. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he was not aware about reporting of CAOs to DGMs but informed that in Circle office all AO given higher responsibility will be given designation as DGM and all AOs in SSAs/BAs will be given higher responsibility under looking after arrangement with designation as CAO. 

4.     Issuing formal letters for restoration of facilities to associations: We have once again drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai on delay of more than one year in issuing the formal letter granting facilities to recognised associations. We reminded him how action was illegally taken in June 2021 and thereafter same illegal orders were withdrawn. But since then three months are passed, but no action is taken for issuing formal and correct letters. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the matter is being reviewed by checking with concern expressed by the association and further assured that the formal orders for grant of facilities to the associations is under consideration and orders will be issued shortly. We added that it is already delayed for one year and again since last order it is delayed for three months and there is deliberate delay in issuing formal orders. GM HR Admn Mumbai agreed that there is delay but it is due to checking details of the issues raised and assured to issue the formal letters very shortly.

5.     Issues related to restoration of facilities to Associations and further course of action: We have elaborated malpractices done by certain Officers in dealing with issues related to grant of facilities and how certain officers have misused authority in granting facilities specifically during the period when window for membership changeover among associations was open for executives. We added that SNEA MH has given detail letter on this matter but this letter is just roaming with certain officers and no proper action has been taken on it. We narrated that it has come to our notice that the said officer has given undertaking that orders are issued due to oversight and he is being forgiven on this undertaking and noted that it is not corrective action. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the works of association activities with Shri. Gulab Hasan, AD Admn II Mumbai who has issued orders without approval of competent authority are withdrawn from him and assigned to Shri. Gaurang Doshi AD Admn I Mumbai and he will take care of all such issues related to association activities.  When we requested for action against such malice action, GM HR Admn Mumbai infirmed that concerned AD has been warned and matter may not be stressed further and assured that care will be taken to avoid any such action in future course of time.

6.     Action on Misuse of authority for deduction of subscription of associations:  We have narrated the issue of misuse of the authority by Shri. Raingam AO Salary Mumbai in illegal and unofficial deduction of subscription of single association throughout the year and playing with the BSNL REA Rules in support of certain office Bearers. We added that SNEA has given detail compliant about conspiracy in dealing this sensitive issue and even after passing three months no action has been taken against the AO Salary Mumbai. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has received information that said AO has giving in writing that he has done it due to oversight as he was not aware about the rules. We have narrated that it is lie and he cannot work due to oversight only for single association by keeping similar proposals of other association sidelined. There is clear biased attitude visible in his actions and management should not shelter by making such stand and compel us to take this issue further. Then GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that said officer is working under GM Fin Mumbai and action needs to be taken by GM Fin Mumbai and his office has no role. We made it clear that being HR in charge he has to take action in this matter also and issue cannot be diverted to GM Fin Mumbai. We also narrated the incident of taking self-benefits by misuse of authority given for granting TBP and GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the recovery of same has been started. We narrated that the matter may be investigated for other such incidents and action may be taken against the culprits whoever it may be. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he is busy with other works and could not give it special time but assured to check the details and take review of the entire matter and compliant given by SNEA.

7.     Wrong clarification issued by Circle Office to Kalyan SSA on REA rules: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai on malpractices started in granting approval for new District Body by certain officers just to get benefits of the immunity from transfers. We have added that Kalyan SSA has asked clarification by hiding certain facts and his office has issuing wrong and unwanted clarification just to favour some individual to get wrong benefits of immunity. We have narrated that how in deliberate attempt these wrong and unwanted clarifications are issued without knowledge of CGMT MH as Circle head and competent authority in this matter. We added that SNEA MH has submitted detailed letter addressed to CGMT MH, and said letter is marked to GM HR Admn Mumbai, but till no action has been taken in this matter as if nothing wrong has happened in this matter. GM HR Admn Mumbai agreed that such wrong clarification has been issued to Kalyan SSA but after concern expressed by SNEA, the entire matter has been reported to BSNL CO and further course of action in this matter will be decided after receipt of the clarification from BSNL CO. Copy <<<>>> We have narrated that Kalyan SSA is processing file for grant of immunity on basis of this wrong clarification and hence this wrong clarification needs to be withdrawn. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the matter is being pursued for early clarification from BSNL CO and association should also take up matter for early clarification so that issues can be sorted out. In conclusion he informed that disputed issues on grant of facilities as asked by Kalyan SSA about formation of new District Bodies will be decided as per clarification issued by BSNL CO and till time no one will be granted immunity and transfers will be implanted accordingly. 

8.     Publication of Directory of contact details of Executives in CO Mumbai with work Profile: We have reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai that association has raised this issue with CGMT MH and with him at many occasions. CGMT MH was kind enough to issue instructions to then GM HR Admn Mumbai and present GM HR Admn Mumbai, but since last six months no action has been taken. We elaborated that the officers in filed units are facing problem in case they need any help /support from any section /officer from Circle Office Mumbai. The details were earlier published only for Officers in staff section along with work distribution, but same is not followed even for other sections under GM HR Admn Mumba or for any other verticals. Our genuine concern on this matter has been agreed by all and till no action has been taken in Publication of Directory of contact details of Executives in CO Mumbai with work Profile. GM HR Admn Mumbai conveyed that he agrees with the fact that SNEA has raised this issue repeatedly and it has been assured each time to issue such digital directory, but he could not complete it. He assured that he will direct any of the AD Admn to work on it and assured that shortly such list will be made available.

9.     Use of apprenticeship candidates for office works: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai on our discussions with CGMT MH on different occasions and need of using manpower supplied through apprenticeship as per the guidelines issued by BSNL and Government of India. We narrated that many office works and works in filed units can be carried out with these apprenticeship candidates and its cost will be borne by Govt of India. We also reminded that in recent past BSNL CO has endorsed all guidelines for use of apprenticeship candidates in BSNL to Circles and now action is required from Admn section to go ahead with this proposal for apprenticeship candidates. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has received instructions from CGMT MH and he & his team is working on it. He assured that very shortly desired guidelines for use of apprenticeship in office works will be issued by his office with approval of CGMT MH Circle.    

10.      Circle Office Issues:

a.     Consideration of Request of executives for change of sections within CO Mumbai: We conveyed thanks to GM HR Admn Mumbai for giving consideration for partial requests of executives for change of Section within Circle Office Mumbai and further requested to given consideration of other pending requests. We narrated that some posting were done directly by ignoring the pending requests to these sections. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that it may not be possible to consider all requests as about all executives under transfer have joined. We reminded him about the pending requests transfers to CO Mumbai which are yet to be restored and it is quite possible to give consideration to all these pending requests for change of sections during these transfers. GM HR Admn Mumbai agreed with the proposal and assured to give consideration to requests for change of section to maximum possible extent.    

b.    Stopping 12% direct deduction on name of discount on Medical reimbursement: We reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai that the day since he has taken over the charge of GM HR Admn Mumbai, SNEA has requested him for withdrawal of orders for 12% compulsory deduction on medical bills wherein on each occasion he has assured to issue the orders. We also narrated that the matter has been discussed with CGMT MH on all different meetings wherein GM HR Admn was personally present. In these meetings also CGMT MH has issued direction for withdrawal of this order but no action has been taken and we are sorry to say but even no preliminary preparations are also done. We have elaborated that there is no any issue in it and only required is will power to make it formal order as per discussions held and directions issued by CGMT MH. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there is delay in issuing this orders sue to some administrative reasons, but he noted this point as important point in his Diary and firmly assured to issue orders within day or two.     

c.      Review of higher rates approved for canteen beyond tender period: We once again drawn attention of CGMT MH on the critical issues due to prolonged extension of Tender for Canteen at Circle Office Mumbai and approval conveyed at rates higher than the tender rates and its impact on the employees. We narrated that there were issues during lock down period as less customers were visiting to canteen, but now it is as good as full swing working and good number of employees are visiting canteen . Further prolonged continuation of extended and increased rates may call for any compliant and it is need of time that fresh tender is called for Canteen before matter becomes more complicated. We reminded that SNEA has repeatedly brought this issue to his notice and notice of earlier GMMHR Admn Mumbai but no corrective action is taken. GM HR Admn Mumbai asked some additional information about the tendering procedure and we have added that tender will be done by CPC cell on request from Admn section and only required is proposal cum request from Admn section to CPC cell for fresh tender for operations of canteen. After understanding all the issues and concern expressed by association, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he will look into it and see that proposal for fresh tender is sent to CPC Cell at the earliest.  

After elaborate discussions on each and every issue, these fruitful discussions started at 1630 hrs concluded at 1900 hrs with thanks to each other and with hopes for early action by office of GM HR Admn Mumbai on different issues discussed in the meeting.  In conclusion, we specifically requested GM HR Admn Mumbai to seriously look into issues of Request transfers from Non-Tenure stations and Rule 8 request transfers of JAOs and JTOs and give relief to the executives by clearing uncertainty continued for prolonged period.

29 SEP 21: AD Admn Mumbai issued orders for withdrawal of earlier order creating compulsions to BSNL employees to purchase Medicines only from M/S Apollo or any other medical shop giving 12% Discount.  Letter <<<>>>  Order dated 07/07/2018 <<<>>>   Order dated 23/07/2018 <<<>>> 

·        These orders were issued by then CGMT MH on name of saving money of BSNL with indirect approach to increase sale of M/S Apollo Pharmacy on name of 12% discount.

·        Many employees faced difficulties as it was not possible to procure the medicines only from M/S Apollo and getting discount and all other medical shops were not giving this much discount.

·        Certain officers in Admn Section that time have created wrong picture that BSNL Money will be saved but it was indirect attempt to support M/S Apollo Pharmacy. The certain officers in the chain worked very ruthless Lesly and made compulsory deductions from the Medical bills submitted by the employees regardless of the fact that the employees has received any discount or not and it was direct loss to executives and non-executives.

·        This matter was raised by SNEA and mainly by Shri. Ankit Gangar, DS SNEA Mumbai and continuously pursued it in different meetings with CGMs/GMs and important point is that each and every time the concerned expressed by association was accepted by all CGMs and GMs HR/Admn but the withdrawal order was not issued for reasons known to these officers. Letter <<<>>>

·        In last four to five meeting with Shri. Ramakant Sharma CGMT MH and Shri. S.V. Nakhale GM HR Admn Mumbai, this issue was raised by SNEA delegation and in last meeting on 23/09/2021, GM HR Admn Mumbai has firmly assured to issue orders as per discussions by SNEA delegation with CGMT MH on 09/09/2021.

·        Finally, this black order issued in July 2018 is withdrawn and about all executives and Non-Executives in Mumbai will get relief from the compulsory deduction which was illegally operated only for Circle Office Mumbai.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Ramakant Sharma CGMT MH and Shri. S.V. Nakhale GM HR Admn Mumbai for giving conclusive shape to discussions and finally withdrawing this order.

·        SNEA MH specially congratulate Shri. Ankait Gangar, DS SNEA Mumbai and his team SNEA Mumbai in active support of Shri. Abhay Kesarkar, JS CE SNEA MH who have put their tireless efforts and finally successful in withdrawal of this black order.

 

28 SEP 21: AGM Pers BSNL CO issued orders considering requests of SDEs working at All India Tenure stations and three SDEs at J&K Circle are transferred and posted to CNTxW Circle but under Territory of Maharashtra Telecom Circle and only one substitute is posted from MH Circle. Letter <<<>>>

 

27 SEP 21: DGM Legal Mumbai issued transfer order of AGMs wherein request for change of SSA of two AGMs is given consideration at Own cost and history is created by issuing fourth transfer order at company cost in respect of AGM Jalna. Letter <<<>>>

·        SNEA MH has pursued all these requests for change of SSA submitted by Shri. V.R. Choudhary AGM Pune under transfer to Goa and now posted to Raigad SSA and Shri. S.R. Chandorikar AGM Aurangabad from Kalyan to Parbhani SSA and request by both these AGMs is now given consideration. Both the officers earlier relived through ERP are now restored at their earlier SSA and will be relived fresh to new place of posting and last date for their relieving will be 04/10/2021.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Ramakant Sharma CGMT MH and Shri. S.V. Nakhale, GM HR Admn Mumbai for giving consideration of request of both these AGMs and saving cost of transfers and filling two vacant post of TDMs without any cost to BSNL.

·        While two request are given consideration new discrepancy is created by posting Shri. S.N. Jirvankar AGM Jalna as substitute to Shri. R.N. Chavan TDM Buldhana whose request is given consideration for Amaravati.

·        SNEA MH is continuously pursuing for issuing all pending request transfers from Non-Tenure to Non-Tenure SSAs and same has been firmly assured by CGMT MH on our last meeting on 09/09/2021, by GM HR Admn Mumbai on our last meeting on 23/09/2021 and we have also confirmed that the data for consideration of these pending request transfers is ready with AD Staff A and B Mumbai, but only hurdle in entire process is DGM Legal Mumbai who has illegally occupied the chair of DGM HR Mumbai when separate DGM HR is posted and misguiding GM HR Admn Mumbai by giving such false and biased proposals on request  transfers and making all out efforts to delay the request transfer orders from non-tenure SSAs.

·        All the officers in the process of transfer posting except DGM legal Mumbai have agreed for considering all pending requests and DGM legal is creating hurdles in issuing these pending request transfer orders to run his agenda to create unrest among the SNEA Members and mainly projecting that these request transfers are delayed by SNEA by raising objections on the transfer order dated 22/05/2021. 

·        Same has been replied by DGM legal Mumbai to many executive calling him asking status of his/her pending request transfer that all pending transfer orders will be issued in March 2022 and these transfers are stopped by objection of SNEA, but fact is that the objections raised by SNEA have been accepted and corrective orders are also issued and only pending work is about request transfers from non-tenure stations and nothing special is required to consider these orders.

·        In our meeting with CGMT MH also DGM legal tried to project CGMT MH that all pending request transfers may be issued in March 2022 but CGMT MH has overruled his idea and firmly assured to SNEA that all the pending request transfers will be issued and has directed GM HR Admn Mumbai to process the cases.

·        GM HR Admn Mumbai has issued directions to DGM Legal Mumbai who has always shown reluctance rather totally negative approach towards the genuine issues and difficulties faced by the executives waiting for restoration of their transfer orders. DGM legal continues to give such malafide ideas to GM HR Admn Mumbai and unfortunately GM HR Admn Mumbai is also believing on his such wrong and biased ideas and processing it for approval of CGMT MH and orders are issued in such biased and pick and choose manner.

·        Though it is easy to issue all pending orders as entire data is ready and only substitute are to be revised in few cases but instead of issuing all pending orders in one stroke, such pick and choose orders are being issued by violation of transfer policy guidelines and with malafide intention to create unrest among the executives who are waiting for restoration of their Request transfers kept in abeyance.

·        In present case, Shri. S. N. Jirvankar AGM Jalna is being targeted by issuing one after another transfer orders and this is his fourth transfer order issued by DGM Legal Mumbai.

·        First Transfer order of Shri. S.N. Jirvankar AGM Jalna was issued on 22/05/2021 wherein his own cost request transfer was issued from Jalna to Aurangabad, but he was not relieved and his order was kept in abeyance. Order I <<<>>>

·        Then in second transfer order dated 31/07/2021, Shri. S.N. Jirvankar AGM Jalna was transferred from Jalna to Kalyan SSA at Company cost. Order II <<<>>>

·        Then in third order on 24/08/2021, the transfer order of Shri. S.N. Jirvankar AGM Jalna to Kalyan was changed and he was posted to Raigad SSA at Company cost. Order III <<<>>>

·        And now as per this fourth order the posting of Shri. S.N. Jirvankar AGM Jalna is changed from Raigad to Buldhana at Company cost and now he is posted as substitute to Shri. R.N. Chavan TDM Buldhana whose request is given consideration to Amaravati on pick and choose basis as none of other about 70 requests pending are given consideration.

·        Most important point is that Shri. S.N. Jirvankar is having stay at Jalna since 06/05/2019 and Shri. R.N. Chavan is having stay at Buldhana since 06/07/2018 and in no way Shri. S.N. Jirvankar can be substitute to Shri R.N. Chavan on his own cost transfer to Buldhana.

·        The stay particulars of AGMs can be confirmed from the long stay list published by DGM HR Mumbai on 03/04/2021. Stay Particulars <<<>>>

·        There are AGMs in Amravati who are having stay at Amravati and highest stayed AGM at Amravati is working in Amravati since 29/12/2009 and as per transfer policy guidelines substitute should have been posted on one to one basis from Amravati. If not substitute should have been posted from Circle long stay list.

·        But here attempts are made to trouble Shri. S.N. Jirvankar by issuing transfers after transfers and he is being harassed by issuing such odd transfers and his request for Aurangabad is not given consideration.

·        Most important point is that one of AGM with stay of one year is posted to Aurangabad at own cost request transfer, but Shri. S.N. Jirvankar who has completed three years in Jalna and who transfer order was issued for Aurangabad on 22/05/2021 is denied his request by issuing such flimsy orders due to some officers who are playing with transfer policy guidelines to rune the self-agenda of creating unrest among executives.

·        Not only Shri. S.N. Jirvankar, but Shri. V.K. Dhore and Shri. A.D. Badhe both AGMs at Wardha are being harassed in similar manner by not giving consideration to their request from Wardha to Amravati and Shri. A.D. Badhe is posted to Gadchiroli SSA at company cost and Shri. V.K. Dhore he is posted to Nanded SSA at company cost and now on pick and choose basis only request of Shri. R.N. Chavan is given consideration to Amravati and in master mind idea to save the transfer of long styed AGM at Amaravati Shri. S.N. Jirvankar is harassed by posting substitute at Buldhana.

·        We are sorry to see that such biased ideas by DGM legal Mumbai are being blindly accepted by GM HR Admn and CGMT MH without understanding the transfer policy and biased mind approach in submitting such proposals by DGM legal Mumbai.

·        If these are not the ideas of DGM legal Mumbai, then we have to find out who is creating all such biased ideas and dares to violate the transfer policy guidelines and creating wrong picture about biased working of Circle management and making efforts to create mass unrest among the executives who are waiting for transfers.

·        In our last meeting with GM HR Admn Mumbai on 23/09/2021, he has assured to issue the all pending transfer orders by end of this month, but with such biased actions which as per our observations are from the biased mind of DGM legal Mumbai, we do not find that the assurance given by CGMT MH and GM HR Admn Mumbai will be kept and followed and pending transfer orders will be issued by end of this month.

·        SNEA MH assures all the affected comrades who are waiting for restoration of their own cost request transfers from Non-tenure stations that SNEA MH will again take up this matter with CGMT MH to see that all pending request transfers are given consideration at the earliest by overcoming hurdles being created by DGM Legal Mumbai.

·        We appreciate the prolonged patience shown by these executives and appeal them to keep some more patience for consideration of their request transfers as we are still confident that CGMT MH and GM HR Admn will keep their word of restoration of all pending request transfers from Non-tenure stations.       

 

27 SEP 21: DGM Legal Mumbai continue to follow tradition started since creation of post of DGM Legal Mumbai for issuing corrigendum to each and every order and now issues corrigendum is issued to the order  dated issued for IFA LA arrangements.

17 SEP 21: DGM Legal Mumbai issued orders for posting IFAs at different BAs and Circle Office Mumbai wherein all are given posting as it is where it is basis Letter <<<>>>

·        Earlier while giving responsibility of IFAs, the AOs were given posting as DGM and now all IFAs are given posting as CAO on where it is as it basis.

·        It has been reported that someone has complained that AOs in Maharashtra Circle are directed promoted as DGMs and hence all are now given responsibility as CAO.

·        Out of 18 AOs given responsibility as IFA, 17 AOs are given responsibility as CAO and only one AO is given responsibility as DGM.

·        If it was matter of complaint about giving posting to AOs as DGMs, then no one should be given AO to DGM LA and all should be given IFA responsibility as CAO, but here on pick and choose basis only one AO is given responsibility of IFA in DGM cadre, which is nothing but favoritism to on individual for known reasons.

·        Recently on 31/08/2021, DGM Legal Mumbai has called for willingness from AO in Pay Scale of E3/E4 for the post as DGM Finance Planning at Circle Office Mumbai, but same also not given consideration in this order even though options are received for same. Calling options <<<>>>

·        This shows that calling options for post of DGM Fin Plg Mumbai was unwanted action on part of DGM Legal Mumbai as there was no post of DGM Fin Plg Vacant and the requirement was of CAO level officer.

·        Nowadays, officers in Staff Section dares to violate rules as if they are not bothered about rule and guidelines or equal HR approach to all, but bothered about directions given by someone to do something regardless of guidelines on the subject.

·        It is natural if rule is to be violated for giving DGM post to one AO, then it can be violated for all other AOs and all are equally given either CAO or DGM LA but not as done now.

·        It was also not matter of concern if only senior most AO is given responsibility as DGM, but here many seniors will work as CAO and junior will work as DGM.

·       SNEA MH will take up matter for equal treatment for all AOs and following equal criteria for giving higher responsibility to all IFAs in DGM Cadre or give it in CAO Cadre to all and this pick and choose criteria of giving DGM LA depriving others from powers and benefits of DGM post cannot be accepted.

·        Shri. Sameer Chavan, JAO is posted as JAO HR in staff section and he will look into HR issues of Account Finance wing of then FC section.

·        It is important that the works of FC section were not taken care since VRS and then JAO FC has been posted to Admn/Estate section and there was dispute going on between the officers in Staff section and Finance section and no one was taking care of HR issues of Account wing.

·        SNEA MH has taken up these issues with GM Fin, DGM Fin, DGM Legal GM HR Admn and CGMT MH and every time stand was taken by DGM legal that the files are not officially handed over to his section by Account wing. But fact is that keys of the FC section are with Staff section and none of the issues of Account wing Officers were taken care except any special case and persuasion from higher level.

·        Due to this dispute, the important works like confirmation of JAOs who have completed Probation period of two years is also not given consideration.

·        Finally the efforts of SNEA MH in resolution of dispute between Staff and Account section was settled by CGMT MH and it was decided to spare one JAO by Finance wing for HR activities of Account wing under staff section.

·       Accordingly Shri. Samir Chavan, JAO is posted as JAO HR and he will take care of all HR activities of Account wing and executives in Account will not suffer further as happened for last one and half year and even the work of confirmation of JAOs will speed up.

15 Sep 21: Meeting with Shri. Rohit Sharma CGM CNTxW Circle at Mumbai: Delegation of SNEA led by Shri. M.N. Kotambe, ACS SNEA MH and consisting Shri. Abhay Kesarkar, JS CE SNEA MH, Shri. I. A. Ansari, DS SNEA WTR Mumbai and Shri. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH, had meeting with Shri. Rohit Sharma, CGMT CNTxW Mumbai on 04/09/2021 at 1715 hrs in his chamber and discussed different HR and development issues of CNTXW Circle. Shri. Prashant Takalikar, GM HQ CNTxW Circle was present in the meeting has shared his views on different issues as per directions of CGM CNTxW Circle.

At the very outset we have conveyed CGM CNTxW Circle for his special initiatives for giving steady and Stable OFC Network since his joining as CGM CNTxW Circle. We also conveyed thanks for initiatives taken by CNTxW Circle with firm assurances to executives transferred to Gujarat Circle for returning back on completion of two years and also for partial implementation of Rule 8 transfers in CNTxW Circle.

Thereafter we have lengthy discussions on different HR issues of executives in CNTxW Circle and also the issues related to Development and growth of BSNL in CNTxW Circle. The details of discussions are as follows.

A.   HR issues :

1.     FTTH facilities to all Offices for effective working in digital era: We have drawn attention of CGM CNTxW Circle about the issues faced by the executives in CNTxW in carrying out office works in absence of non-availability of FTTH connections. The majority of works of these executives are depending on the speed of internet connectivity and the present BB connections provided are not sufficient to meet requirements in changed scenario and specially while working on e files and SAP, quality of speed matters. We requested to provide FTTH connections in all Offices up to JTO Level so that they can work efficiently. CGM CNTxW Circle agreed to our concern that speed matters in digital era, but added that the FTTH connections cannot be provided to all offices up to JTO Level till such guidelines are issued by BSNL CO. We have added that issue can be settled by one FTTH connection and it’s sharing via Wi-Fi /LAN network to other officers in the said office. CGM CNTxW Circle was of the opinion that even there are no orders for provision of FTTH Connections up to DGM Level and now only GMs are eligible for office FTTH Connections. We have brought to his notice that in Maharashtra Circle DGMs are allotted FTTH Office connections recently and same can be followed in CNTXW Circle. CGM informed us to share the copy of the order but insisted that as policy matter, the association should take up matter with BSNL Corporate Office for provision of FTTH Office Connections in place of BB connections being provided as on today. He added that he has no issue in provision of FTTH connections once guidelines are issued by BSNL CO. We requested to make possible efforts to provide LAN/BB Connectivity in all offices of CNTxW Circle and he assured it is provided in all offices and if not stable connectivity will be provided to all offices for smooth working of SAP, e files and all other works depending on connectivity.  

2.     Consideration of AGM/DE LA as per Circle seniority: We have narrated that in DE LA arrangements the Circle seniority is not followed by CNTxW Circle and look after orders are issued on pick and choose basis. CGM CNTxW Circle firmly informed that seniority is followed by his office in giving DE/AGM LA arrangements. We have categorically brought to his notice that seniority is not followed in giving DE/AGM LA arrangements and quoted certain examples. He informed that DE LA is given on Local arrangements and hence Circle seniority is not followed but local seniority at station is followed. We have brought to notice of CGM CNTxW Circle the violation of seniority criteria even on local seniority and how some junior SDEs are given AGM/DE LA on pick and choose basis and how seniors are deprived from it even by reverting them from earlier AGM/DE LA posts. CGM CNTxW Circle asked the details from GM HQ CNTxW and he informed that the local arrangements were done as per working in WTP and WTR Circle and accordingly LA Orders are being continued on need basis and confirmed that seniority criteria is not followed. GM HQ further added that though seniority is not followed care is taken that no senior SDE is compelled to work under junior SDE as DE/AGM. After understanding the issues, finally CGM CNTxW Circle agreed to concern expressed by association and assured to have review of the DE/AGM LA arrangements as per Circle seniority, but added that concerned officers should be ready and willing to take higher responsibility as DE/AGM LA which is missing now days. We added that once matter is decided as policy matter and options are called willing will definitely come forwards and one who is not willing will not have any right to complain about his seniority. Finally CGM CNTxW Circle directed to have review of the DE/AGM LA orders as per seniority.

3.     Filling vacant posts of DGMs CNTxW at Nagpur and Goa: We brought to the notice of issues related to counting of seniority in issuing DGM and DE LA in CNTxW Circle and how the guidelines on counting seniority are not given consideration in CNTXW Circle. In reciprocation CGM CNTXW Circle informed that he is having sufficient DGMs in CNTxW Circle and there is no need of DGMs under LA arrangements. We have brought to his notice that post of DGM/DE/SDE are vacant in Goa and post of DGM is vacant at Nagpur since death of then DGM. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that there is no need of DGM at Goa and assured to fill vacant post of DGM at Nagpur, but reacted that no one is willing to take over charge as no one wants transfer. We insisted that if options are called definitely many will come forward as Nagpur is most popular place and finally CGM CNTxW Circle assured for same and to fill vacant post of DGM at Nagpur through LA Arrangements.

4.     Publication of correct stay particulars and updated long stay list: We have drawn attention of CGM CNTxW Circle towards the wrong counting of stay particulars of some of executives in CNTxW Circle and requested for its corrections and its publication. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he details were published long back and corrections were called from all, and all requests for corrections of stay particulars were incorporated. If anyone has not represented then same may not be corrected. We have narrated few such cases, but CGM CNTxW Circle was of the opinion that each and every case should not directly come to association and the individuals should write to DGM Admn Mumbai for same and till issue is not resolved then may be reported by Association. He was of the opinion that when such issues are agreed by the administration, no need of intervention by association. He directed us to instruct concerned executives to take up it with DGM Admn Mumbai and assured to get it corrected if represented by individual officers.

5.     Confirmation of Tenure stations and facilities while posted under CNTXW Circle: We have narrated that the Maharashtra Circle has declared certain SSAs as Circle Tenure stations and the executives of CNTxW working at these stations also should get the tenure facilities if posted at any of these stations. We added that recently one JTO was posted by MH Circle to CNTxW Ratnagiri and he was insisting for tenure facilities as his earlier posting was to Ratnagiri SSA and he was eligible for transfer after completion of two years and but when is posting is changed to CNTXW Circle, and he is not sure about it. Earlier also one of JTO at Gadchiroli was not given consideration of Tenure facility and Maharashtra Circle has issued orders on completion of tenure by crossing jurisdiction of Circle and posted for to five substitutes who have not joined due to different reasons. Also important issues is that the executives in CNTxW circle with more stay are retained at same place and not used as substitute for Circle tenure stations, but executives in Maharashtra Circle with much less stay than the concerned executives in CNTxW are compelled to join at these tenure stations under CNTxW Circle and it is injustice to executives in Circle. We requested that either combined stay of the JTOs in CNTxW and MH Circle should be given consideration while posting at Tenure station by Maharashtra Circle or CNTxW Circle should post CNTxW Circle level long stayed substitute as substitute to these tenure completed executives. CGM CNTxW Circle was of the opinion that there are no tenure facilities applicable in CNTxW Circle and hence question does not arose for granting facilities. We have narrated that if there are no tenure stations as per CNTxW Circle, then why Maharashtra Circle is issuing transfer orders of JTOs from Circle Tenure station on completion of two years and why JTOs from Maharashtra Telecom Circle long stay list are posted to Tenure stations , needs to be confirmed. We have discussed this issue with CGMT MH Circle and matter has been cleared by issuing orders that executives of CNTxW Circle working at Goa, Sindhudurg, Ratnagiri, Raigad (except Panvel), Nandurbar District in Dhule SSA and Gadchiroli are  given facilities of Circle tenure stations. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he is not aware of any such order issued by MH Circle. We have informed that order has been issued by end of Aug 21 and its copy has been marked to CGM CNTxW Circle. But he expressed that same is not received by his office and confirmed same from GM HQ and he also informed that no such letter is received and requested us to provide it copy. Copy <<<>>>. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that if orders are issued by Maharashtra Circle then his office will surely grant facilities of Circle tenure station to all executives from CNTxW Circle working at the stations referred by Maharashtra Circle.

6.     Stand on deputation from Telecom Circles to CNTXW Circle: We narrated some cases of SDE deputation issued by Maharashtra Circle as well as MP Circle to CNTxW Circle and dual stand taken by the CNTxW Circle. SDEs are deputed to CNTxW by Circle to meet urgency and their deputation is to be either regularized by issuing covering orders by BSNL CO or they should be returned back to Circles on certain period of deputation. But in recent past CNTxW Circle has taken dual stand as the SDE from MP Circle is transferred to Gujrat Circle stating that he is in long stay list and the SDE from MH Circle is already transferred under long stay list of MH Circle, but he is not released and retailed and much junior SDEs in stay are being transferred to other non-popular stations including stations within CNTxW Circle. The deputation is purely temporary order and once concerned Circles have canceled deputation, then CNTxW Circle has to relieve them. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that SDEs joins CNTxW Circle on deputation to safeguard themselves from long stay lists and if deputation is not cancelled in fixed period they are permanent SDEs of CNTxW Circle and they cannot be released back from CNTxW to concerned recruiting Circle. We have stressed about double stand by CNTxW Circle in implementation of Circle long stay list in MP and MH Circle territory, he informed that decision is taken as per the long stay in case of Shri. Malviya SDE MP Circle and he is transferred by CNTXW Circle to Gujrat Circle and about Shri. Hete SDE from MH Circle to deputation to CNTxW, he informed that he has requested for retention to GM CNTxW Nagpur for retention at Nagpur till his request is given consideration to J&K Circle. We have informed that there is waiting list of SDEs in J&K Circle and chances of consideration of all request in near future are less. Hence CNTxW Circle cannot retain him at Nagpur for ample period as other SDEs/JTOs with less stay from Nagpur SSA are transferred and his order issued by MH Circles needs to be respected by CNTxW Circle. This is favoritism to particular SDE by CNTxW Circle and injustice to others. We requested for relieving both the SDEs on deputation to concerned Circle and resolve the issue. We have also added that MP Circle has already referred matter to BSNL CO and hence it is better that issue is closed. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he is having shortage of SDEs in CNTxW Circle and till substitute are posted he cannot relieve them and let the matter decided by BSNL CO.

7.     Injustice on Transfer of JTOs/SDEs from MH Circle with less stay and retention of SDEs/JTOs in CNTXW Circle: During discussions, we have elaborated CGM CNTxW Circle how the disparity is being created among JTOs/SDEs in territory of same circle and how CNTxW Circle is not following any criteria for rearrangements of Executives and asking executives from Maharashtra Circle for specific locations and how Maharashtra Circle is transferring JTOs to fill vacant post at CNTXW Circle. We have added that there is no issue if requests at same stations are given consideration or even if anyone is willing out of SSA territory, there is no issue, but if JTOs with less stay from Maharashtra Circle are transferred and JTOs from CNTxW Circle with much more stay are retained at same Station and it is matter of concern. We specifically narrated the posting of JTOs at Akola and Pandharpur in Solapur SSA, wherein JTOs/JEs from Nagpur with 4-5 years of stay at Nagpur are transferred but JEs/JTOs/SDEs at CNTXW Nagpur with stay of more than 15-20 years are not dislocated. This has created much unrest among the executives in MH Telecom circle and requested for operation of combined long stay list of JTO in CNTxW Circle and MH Circle as per station seniority. We have drawn attention of CGM CNTxW Circle towards fact that some JTOs at Ahmednagar and Aurangabad are willing to join CNTxW Ahmednagar, Aurangabad but there is issue in joining of JTOs at Akola and Pandharpur and requested for posting the JTOs at both these station by outing combined stay of the JTOs from CNTxW and MH Circle. CGM CNTxW Circle assured to discuss this issue with CGMT MH Circle and decided accordingly. He further informed that his office has already decided some action plan for rearrangements within CNTxW Circle and directed GM HQ CNTxW Mumbai to take further necessary action on this issue.

8.     Consideration of JTO Rule 8 transfers from CNTxW Circle: While we conveyed thanks to CGM CNTxW Circle for consideration of partial request of JTOs under Rule 8 transfer and requested for relieving of JTO Shri. At CNTxW Circle by local arrangements. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that it is to be decided by GM CNTxW Nagpur and he has no issue. But he expressed his reluctance in consideration of Rule 8 request transfer till substitute is posted by Maharashtra Circle. He added that his office has already written to MH Circle for posting substitute or guidelines thereof, but till replay is awaited. He added that but during discussions it has been informed that rule 8 transfers will not be given consideration due to shortage. We have elaborated CGM CNTxW Circle that there are only two cases in CNTxW Circle and out of which one is already approved by MH Circle and another is pending for recommendations and hence it is to be taken care by CNTxW Circle with local arrangements. We added that we are also pursuing with CGMT MH where only five rule 8 cases are pending and our discussions are going in positive directions to relieve these JTOs with local arrangements. Further substitute is not possible as there is no recruitment of JTOs and hence local arrangements is only solution for considering Rule 8 requests. Finally CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he will once again discuss matter with Maharashtra Circle and decided on left pout cases of Rule 8 transfers.

9.     Consideration of Time Bound Promotions of executives in CNTxW Circle:  We have requested CGM CNTxW Circle for consideration of Time Bound Promotions of executives in CNTxW Circle as same are not being given consideration in time bound manner. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that action is being taken for same and recently few orders have been issued. We informed that the action is taken only for Executives CGM Office, but as per e-DPC guidelines TBP of all executives is to be completed at Circle level. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he is not aware about such guidelines and asked GM HQ about the said guidelines. GM HQ informed that he also has not seen these guidelines and asked us to give details. We have informed that such guidelines are rightly available and same are already implemented in Maharashtra Telecom Circle and activities are started, but till we will check and give copy of order. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that if there are guidelines for Circle Level e DPC, then same will be taken care and TBP orders of all executives will be issued centrally otherwise same will be taken care as per earlier guidelines , but firmly assured that all due TBP orders will be surely issued at the earliest.

B.    Individual Request:

1.     Request of Smt. Swati Pushpak JTO Pune under rule 8: We have requested for recommendation of Rule 8 Request transfers pending at CNTxW Circle. CGM CNTxW Circle asked GM HQ CNTxW Mumbai about pendency of such case and he informed that no such case is received by his office. We shared that we have details of it and if required same will be shared to GM HQ Mumbai and he assured to forward it to MH Circle.

2.     Request of Shri. Hardsesh Patel JTO Sindhudurg: We have requested to give consideration of genuine request on family grounds by posting him to nearby station to take care of family issues and it was assured to ascertain possibilities to given consideration to his request. 

3.     Request of Shri. P.R. Patil JAO Pune to Kolhapur recommendation without substitute: We conveyed thanks for forwarding request of Shri. P.R. Patil to MH Circle. We further requested to recommend it without substitute as it is informed that he can be relieved by rearrangements at CNTXW Pune. CGM CNTxW Circle assured to look into possibilities and directed GM HQ to check it.

4.     Request of Shri. S. A. Mali SDE Mumbai to Change posting from Gadchiroli to any place under GMM Mumbai or Pune: We have elaborated the issues created due to posting of Shri. S. A. Mali at Gadchiroli when he is retained in CNTxW Circle by cancellation of his transfer order to MP Circle. But CGM CNTxW Circle was of the opinion that though Shri Mali is again posted in CNTxW Circle, there was shortage of executives at Gadchiroli and hence he is posted to Gadchiroli. We reminded that as per our last discussions, MH Circle has posted substitute to Gadchiroli and substitute has taken over the Charge and now the request of Shri. S. A. Mali needs to be given consideration to any of his choice station. We added that he is facing financial issues and not taking conclusive decision on his long pending request is further injustice to him. We also added that Shri. S. A. Mali is not insisting for retention at Mumbai and has requested for Own cost posting at Goa, Ratnagiri, Chiplun or Panvel wherein post of SDEs are vacant for long time. We elaborated that CNTxW Circle has recently issued some company cost transfer orders on these vacant posts, but no one has joined and when Mali is willing at Own cost, his request is not given consideration. Further CNTxW Circle has issued deputation order of one newly promoted SDE and he also is not willing to join at Goa. Further when Shri. S. A. Mali is ready to work at Goa at own cost, issuing deputation order with TA/DA it is wastage of BSNL Money. We also narrated that Shri. S. A. Mali is senior and he can be given charge of DE Goa. But in strange arrangements CNTxW Circle has issued orders with TA DA and charge of DE Goa is looked after by SDE under DE LA arrangements. The said SDE is having charge of DE Pune, DE Kolhapur and DE Goa and he is overloaded by works of CNTxW Pune to Goa and good amount of BSNL Money is being wasted in TA/DA and the arrangements. Even after we have elaborated all valid points and justified all the guidelines in support of posting of Shri. S. A. Mali at any of the vacant post of choice he has submitted, CGM CNTxW Circle did not agree for consideration of request of Shri. S. A. Mali and was insisting for change of station under GMM Nagpur. We have further requested that he may be posted at any of the place under GMM Pune or Mumbai as it will be convenient to him to some extent. But CGM CNTxW Circle informed that both the GMs have conveyed their unwillingness to accept Shri. S. A. Mali in their area and hence he cannot post him to any of these area. He also added that Shri. S. A. Mali has worked in these areas and hence he cannot be posted to these areas. We have categorically mentioned that he has worked as JTO/SDE and not as GM and his area as SDE cannot be compared with GM area and till there are many SDE stations are vacant where Shri. S. A. Mali has not worked. We brought to notice of CGM CNTxW Circle that the post of SDE are vacant at Sangli, Pune, Kolhapur, Kalyan, Panvel where Shri. S. A. Mali has never worked, but it was also not agreed by CGM CNTxW Circle and he insisted for any choice station by Shri. S. A. Mali under GMM Nagpur. We have elaborated that there are good number of SDEs/JTOs willing to work at station under GMM Nagpur as many JTOs/SDEs from Nagpur are posted at odd locations and it is convenient for them to work at own cost at any of station under GMM Nagpur. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that there certain issues in posting Shri. S. A. Mali at sensitive posts due to some issues in his past works which he did not want to share it and association should not stress much on such individual issues. We have elaborated if there is any mistake on his part , then action should be taken against him, but not giving choice posting that to be at any of the vacant posts at own cost on such biased information is not correct. After understanding reluctance on part of CGM CNTxW Circle to post Shri. S. A. Mali in field units under GMM Pune or Mumbai, we have requested CGM CNTxW Circle to post Shri. S. A. Mali at any non-sensitive post in Mumbai, but CGM CNTxW Circle did not agree on any of the proposal. He finally conveyed that he do not want to discuss this issue anymore and conveyed that to some connivance of Shri. Mali, he has decided to change posting of Shri. S. A. Mali from Gadchiroli to Akola as two DEs from Akola are under long stay transfer and there is shortage of executives. We have elaborated that already one executives is posted by MH Circle to Akola and one more SDE has opted for CNTxW Akola under OTP and his transfer order is expected shortly and hence there is no need of posting of Shri. S. A. Mali to Akola. CGM CNTxW Circle further directed us to convince Shri. S. A. Mali to join at Akola and not to make an issue as being done now. We have informed that we strongly believe that CNTxW Circle is making injustice to Shri. S. A. Mali for long time and this is occasion to give him opportunity to forget all past wrong actions against him and give him opportunity to continue with positive energy. Shri. S. A. Mali is not insisting for any specific post or any specific location, but has shown readiness for working at any sensitive or non-sensitive post except under GMM Nagpur which is far away for him. We added we firmly know that Shri. S. A. Mali may not join at any place under GMM Nagpur which is being done on pick and choose basis and he will continue his struggle for justice. CGM CNTxW Circle once again advised us that let Shri. S. A. Mali join at Akola and show his efficient working for period of two years and then his request may be given consideration. We conveyed that we will try our level best, but we cannot assure firmly where he will be joining at Akola or not as it is his decision. We further requested to forward his request for Own cost Transfer to MH Circle, CGM CNTxW Circle agreed for it but put condition that he will have to join at Akola and send request through GMM Nagpur. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he cannot extend more support to Shri. S. A. Mali and requested us not to stress further on this issue and association should advise Shri. S. A. Mali to follow the orders. We finally conveyed that if Shri. S. A. Mali do not join at Akola and opts to continue struggle against known injustice to him, as association, SNEA will stand behind him and we will endorse issues and concern in his support as per BSNL guidelines and entire responsibilities of any issues developed later will be with management. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that association should not support such issues and think of BSNL works and we have made it clear that we have always requested to consider his genuine request which is well within transfer policy guidelines of BSNL and also in the interest of BSNL, but same is not given consideration after our repeated requests and substitute arrangements at Gadchiroli and Akola also. In conclusion CGM CNTxW Circle conveyed that transfer order of Shri. S. A. Mali will be changed from Gadchiroli to Akola and nothing more is possible on his side in this matter and assured that on completion of two years at Akola, request of Shri. S. A. Mali will be given consideration.

5.     Request for retention at Nashik by Shri. D. R. Aher DE CNTxW Nashik: We narrated that association is pursuing the injustice to Shri. D. R. Aher by transfer after 58 years of the age against the transfer policy guidelines. Further, Shri. D. R. Aher and team SNEA Nashik led by Shri. S. A. Bhadane DS SNEA Nashik had elaborated issues and difficulties faced by Shri. Aher to him during his visit to Nashik, wherein he has directed to discuss the issue with DGM Admn Mumbai and assured to settle grievances of Shri. D R Aher to better extent but nothing has been done. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he has not given any assurance during his visit to Nashik and nothing wrong has been done in case of Shri D. R. Aher as he is posted at just 100 Kms of distance as there is no vacancy in Nashik. We insisted that as per norms for Projects there is vacancy at Nashik which existed till last month and one DE along cannot handle the works of Projects and Maintenance at Nashik and Dhule. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that Shri. S. A. Bhandne DE CNTxW Nashik is capable of handling all these charges alone and hence there is no need of one more DE at Nashik. We requested to consider request of Shri. D R Aher for posting at Dhule, but CGM CNTxW Circle informed that when this post was offered to Shri. D. R. Aher he has not accepted it and hence his request cannot be considered at this stage and it is better that Shri. D. R. Aher joins at Ahmednagar and he can enjoy the works as he is posted to nearby location. We conveyed difficulties faced by Com. D. R. Aher in joining at Ahmednagar and injustice to him just because some is capable of handling charge of DE CNTxW Nashik with works of Projects. WE narrated that Shri. S. A. Bhadane, DE CNTxW is also DS SNEA Nashik and CNTxW has created very awkward position for him by transferring his member against transfer policy guidelines. Shri. Bhadane has already conveyed his difficulties in handling charge of three DEs together, and hence Shri. D. R. Aher may be posted at any of the three charges hold by Shri. Bhandane. But CGM CNTxW Circle continued with his stand that as Shri. Bhadane is excellent Officer and he is handling all there charges of DEs efficiently, he will not post Shri. D. R. Aher either at Nashik or Dhule. When we stressed matter further, CGM CNTxW Circle informed that if Shri. D. R. Aher is willing he can be posted as DGM at Nagpur and we have conveyed it will create further difficulties for him. We narrated that Shri. D. R. Aher is not demanding any promotion as DGM and his only request is he should be retained at Nashik as he has completed 58 years of age and as per transfer policy he is not due for transfers as being done by CNTxW Circle. We added that Shri. D. R. Aher is ready work even as SDE under his junior, but he wants posting at Nashik to overcome issues during fag end of his long and highly successful services. Shri. D. R. Aher has conveyed that if he is not being retained at Nashik, then his request for transfer to MH Circle may be given consideration and CGM CNTxW Circle informed that if he joins at Ahmednagar, his OTP request will be forwarded to BSNL CO. We have narrated that Shri. D. R. Aher is having serious family issues and he cannot join at Ahmednagar and even he is ready to submit resignation from BSNL services and only request is that his resignation should be accepted from Nashik. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he is free to submit his resignation through proper channel on joining Ahmednagar and he will forward it to BSNL. We conveyed that in this case management has taken stand to harass one DE level officers just with some assumptions and BSNL guidelines are not respected as Shri. D. R. Aher has handed over his JTOs and infrastructure to Maintenance team at Nashik and due to his such good behavior he is being declared surplus at Nashik as well as Dhule, which is totally wrong. Then CGM CNTxW Circle added that request of Shri. D. R. Aher cannot be considered and if required and Shri. D. R. Aher is willing, then he can be posted to Mumbai against vacant posts. WE requested for posting at Kalyan which is nearby Nashik and on train route, CGM CNTxW Circle was of the opinion that DE post is important and he cannot leave HQ. We conveyed that he may not leave HQ, but whenever he has any work at Nashik, he can travel with comfort as compared to Ahmednagar and we are stressing it as CNTxW Circle is making injustice by transferring him out of Nashik. We conveyed that we are not sure where Com. D. R. Aher will opt for Kalyan /Mumbai and will go ahead with his resignation. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that his resignation can be accepted if he submits through proper channel from Ahmednagar. We have narrated that in case of resignation from services due to transfer at odd location, the officer is retained and allowed to get retired from working place. In support of our say we have quoted case of Shri. Sayyad SDE Solapur to J&K Circle and his transfer was cancelled with one condition that he will not withdraw resignation and in same lines the resignation of Shri. D. R. Aher may be accepted from Nashik.  CGM CNTxW Circle asked for said orders and assured to look into it. He further informed that he is not assuring firmly but will ascertain the possibilities of change of station of Shri. D. R. Aher from Ahmednagar to Mumbai/Kalyan subject to vacancies. We informed that we discuss with Shri. D. R. Aher and let him know but in case he is not willing for Mumbai, then his request for resignation may be considered from Nashik and CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he will go through the case and decide accordingly.

C.  Technical Issues:

1.     Up gradation of all CPAN present B1/B2 to C1/C2: We have narrated need of upgradation of CPAN Equipments as there is heavy increase in traffic all over Maharashtra. Each and every SSA is facing congestion due to increases in number of FTTH Customers. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that it is difficult task to upgrade all CPAN Equipments as there is huge demand but efforts are being taken in this directions. Maharashtra Circle has given huge requirement and due to financial conditions it is difficult to procure entre requirement. We have added that it is interlinked as till we upgrade CPANs there will be no increase in traffic and uses and no revenue can be generated and hence investment on such crucial equipment is must. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that matter has been under active consideration and tender is floated by BSNL CO and very shortly CPAN Equipments will be supplied and efforts will be taken for its optimum utilization.

2.     Providing view access Backbone Link to One Network team: We informed that as on today One Network team has been formed at all BAs and they are being activated. But it is seen that they are not getting exact position of CNTXW network and hence unable to convey details to the officers in field units and customers calling them. Hence if all these One Network teams are provided with view Link of Backbone access, the team members will have update information and can pass on the correct information about restoration of network. CGM CNTxW Circle was of the opinion that the CNTxW teams are sharing updates about network failure via sms on concerned groups and are also updating information as and when required. As such view link may not be that much useful. We insisted that many places, the information is not shared for different reason and the officers at One Network team are also not available about real issues and what will be time required for restoration of network. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that the failure on one route does not mean that failure of entire route and Equipments. CNTxW Circle is maintaining the standby arrangements for all routes. If one route is failed for any reason, the traffic of that route is automatically or manually diverted to another route on ring and as such failure is not for much more period which needs immediate attention of one network team. We agreed to view of CGM CNTxW, but added that in such cases there is congestion reported in this diverted route and hence there are customer complaints. Specifically FTTH customers, BSNL Partners immediately take note of it and starts asking to officers in filed units and One Network teams and pleaded that if view access sis given to One Network team matter can be better reported to all concerned. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that there is no issue on part of CNTxW Circle and if required and requested by Maharashtra Circle same can be provided starting with few BAs and if required then to all BAs. 

3.     Providing view access of CPAN and OTNM monitoring to One Network teams: We have further narrated need of view access of CPAN and OTNM monitoring to One Network teams as this will help in keeping track by one Network team and accordingly corrective actions can be taken by BAs. CGM CNTxW informed that there is no need of any such link for OTNM Monitoring as it is specialized work by CNTxW Circle and there is nothing much to monitor or review by One Network teams. He further added that for CAPN Monitoring one special CPAN Nodal Centre is being setup by Maharashtra Circle at Nagpur and it will be coordinating with all including CNTxW Circle. He was optimistic that all the issues and concern expressed by association will be taken care by this CPAN Nodal Centre and hence special view link will not be required by BA One Network teams. He informed that by this time Maharashtra Circle may have set up the CPAN Nodal Centre and appointed nodal team. We informed that though orders have been issued for formation of CPAN Nodal Centre, till team members are not appointed, but will be nominated very shortly. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that establishing such view link at all BAs will be costly work and it may not solve any purpose as projected by Association. He added that there will not be any need of such review link once the CAPN Nodal Centre is fully established at Nagpur and the One Network teams from all BAs can take support from CPAN Nodal Centre and issues faced by field units can be resolved to better extent.

a.     Providing Uplink to redeployed SCR (Super Core Router) at Chinchwad: We have narrated that at newly set up SCR at Chinchwad is facing issues as Uplink from Model Colony and MHS SCR are not provisioned on WTR media and there are certain issues faced by WTR Team. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that there are no such issues and if any issues he is not aware about it. All these issues can be taken care by GMM Pune. We added that both the links are to be provided on WTR Media and the uplinks from Model Colony to Chinchwad SCR is not available and MHS to Chinchwad SCR is not provided as its administrative approvals awaited. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that there is no need of intervention from his side and matter will be taken care by GMM Pune and issue will be resolved very shortly and till any issue, it may be brought to his notice. We informed that we will take fresh updates from Pune team and confirm the issues pending and if required will again update him.

4.     Backhaul improvement for certain SSAs : We have drawn attention of CGM CNTxW Circle on issues faced by certain SSAs like Yavatmal about the poor backhaul and need of upgradation of backhaul of such affected SSAs in particular and all SSA in general. CGM CNTxW informed that the issues as and when reported by SSAs and Maharashtra Circle are being taken care and his office is having regular interaction with CGMT MH Circle and his transmission team. He further added that all such works are routine works and are being taken care by GMM CNTxW Circle in respective area. The SSAs have to write them and accordingly augmentation orders are issued by SDE Techs in concerned area. He firmly assured that all such requests from SSAs are being taken care and he himself is monitoring overall traffic and no such specific issue is observed and assured if any such case is pending it will be taken care by concerned GMs. 

5.     Effective Communication and Coordination between Mtce Team and NOC: We have informed that earlier there were issues with NOC team and it was reported by some units of WTR that NOC team is not responding calls from filed units. Though there is improvement over the period, there is need of effective communication. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that the NOC team is very active and they are responding very promptly and there is no such issue. He added that for more effective communication between filed units and NOC, one separate what’s app group is formed and all executives in CNTxW field units and NOC team are members of this group. He added that whatever issues are reported by field unit Mtce teams, all are being responded by the members of NOC team and being member of group, he is keenly monitoring it.

6.     Monitoring of Escalation Matrix of faults: We informed that though there is much improvement in monitoring of pending faults since his takeover as CGM CNTxW, there are certain issues and there is need of monitoring Escalation Matrix of pending faults so that prolonged pendency in faults is reduced. There are certain faults which are not given priority by filed units for different reasons on their part and if monitoring is done from higher level and required support is extended then the pendency of faults will be surely reduced which will finally result in improvement of uptime. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that all the officers in CNTxW including all GMs are regularly monitoring faults. He added that he is also monitoring progress of important faults. As such pendency of faults as pointed out by association is not there. Also issues faced by filed unit Maintenance Teams are being settled on priority and assured that total support is being extended and will continued to be extended to CNTxW teams for clearing old faults.

7.     Instead of Patchwork if possible increase OTN ILA to improve Span loss: We informed that we have received suggestion from field units of CNTxW Circle for use of ILAs on all routes having higher fibre loss instead of repeated patch works. We elaborated that though CNTxW Circle is taking efforts for reducing fibre loss by attending faults is being done by CNTxW Circle, it is not effective in certain cases and the fibre loss is being improved effectively. We suggested that it will be more effective if instead of repeated Patchworks, OTN ILA is installed on such routes, it will help in improving Span loss on many routes. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that though it is good suggestion there are certain issues in installation of IILAs like there is shortage of ILAs, need of specie on route to install Equipments and hence it cannot be provided on all routes. He added that for utilization of ILAs, there is need of arrangements of Battery and Power plants with 24X 7 power supply, which is difficult task as there is always shortage of Battery and Power plants. He elaborated that there are issues in getting proper space for installation of ILA on said any route and if BSNL space is available then it is being used for ILAs. He added that it has been observed that Battery of such routes is needs security arrangements as the chances of thefts are more as majority of ILAs are normally provided on routes and all such locations are mainly at remote places which are prone to thefts. Hence it is not easy and advisable to install ILAs on all lossy fibre routes. CGM CNTxW Circle further added that it may not be effective if losses in repeated joints are not taken care by patchworks even though ILA is installed. He elaborated that the patchwork reduces number of joints on particular routes and hence reduces the fibre losses effectively. He also cleared that till if any route it is ascertained by GMMs of that area, the decision on installation of ILAs is being taken in consultation with SSA/BA Heads concerned and Maharashtra Telecom Circle. 

8.     Requirement of 80 Km SFP for C-Pan: Delegation narrated that as on today CNTxW Circle procuring and using 40 Km SFP and as per feedback from Maintenance teams it will be more effective if BSNL is procuring and utilize the 80 KMs SFPs, which will help in building strong and stable OFC routes by CNTxW Circle. CGM CNTxW Circle responded that the concern expressed by association is correct and action has been already taken by his office by sending requirement received from field units to BSNL Corporate Office. He informed that BSNL CO also has taken steps for procurement of 80 KMs SFPs and after finalization of tender for same, the work order of its supply is being placed by end of this month. He was hopeful that the supply of 80 Km SFPs will be made by end of this month and hence concerned expressed by association will be fully taken care.

9.     Procurement of Armored OFC: We requested for action on part of BSNL for procurement of Armored OFC for better fault location and more life of OFC routes. We narrated that nowadays due to frequent road widening activities, it is difficult to locate OFC, also the unarmored OFC is more damage prone as compared to armored OFC. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that steps are being taken by BSNL for supply of armored OFC. Though it is not possible to use 100% armored OFC, steps are being taken to increase armored OFC in network. As per last procurement order for OFC, Maharashtra Circle is allotted 600 Kms of 24 F armored OFC and by now 400 Kms has been received. Ge further added that the received armored OFC, is allotted to all Area GMs for patch works and each area is allotted about 60 to 80 Km armored OFC. 

10.            Clearing Vendor Payment for continued support to filed units: We have requested CGM CNTxW Circle to look into issues of delayed payments of Vendors for OFC Mtce works as it is adversely affecting on maintenance works. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that there is certain delay in releasing vendor payment but CNTxW Circle is regular in clearing payments. The claims made by the vendors up to March 2021 are cleared and further also funds are being released but till some bills are pending. He added that his office is continuously taking follow up of the pending payments and concerned Vendors are being updated on the issues. He further added that funds are allotted for bills as per pendency and old bills are given priority. As such there are no such issues and payments of few months are pending and he was optimistic that pending payments will also be released within period of two months.

11.            Co-ordination with Highway authorities for future OF Cable planning: We have narrated that State Government is planning new Express Roads like Samrudhee Highway, Kokan Highway and BSNL has to take up matter for keeping duct for BSNL OFC routes as future planning. We also narrated that some existing highways are being expanded and it is seen in the past that in such activities BSNL OFC is totally damaged and hence as prior planning, BSNL has to take up matter with concerned authorities for new OFC routes and to having stable OFC Network. CGM CNTxW Circle responded that it is need of time and to have proper planning and efforts are being taken for planning of new routes. He also added that CNTxW Circle has already taken u matter with concerned authorities and such proposals.

12.            Circle level support by Proper Co-Ordination with NHAI, PWD higher authority to save BSNL OFC: We have narrated that on many routes of OFC, there are frequent road widening and repairing activities are going on by local authorities and there is need of co-ordination between BSNL and concerned authorities. We added that such coordination should not be left only to JTOs/SDEs in filed units as the concerned authorities are not responding properly. The contractors are damaging BSNL OFC ruthlessly and requests by BSNL officers are not given proper attention and BSNL OFC is damaged frequently. We added that if issues are taken at higher level i.e. at GM and CGM level with higher level officers of NHAI, PWD and take up mater of co-ordination and support to BSNL existing OFC , then support extended at lower level will be good and damages to BSNL Cables will be less . CGM CNTxW Circle informed that there are certain issues and these issues are being taken care by Area GMs by regular meetings and at Circle level he also has taken up matter with different authorities and issue is being pursued for better co-ordination at all levels.

13.            Use of apprenticeship to meet Shortage of Manpower: We have shared difficulties faced by executives in field units due to non-availability of supporting manpower after VRS. We also narrated that there are many works which can be taken care by such supporting hands. But as SSAs are facing shortage of manpower there is reluctance in giving supporting hands to CNTxW teams and it is directly affecting working of Maintenance team. CGM CNTxW Circle was f the opinion that as majority of works are outsourced, there should not be need of supporting manpower and works can be managed through outsourced agencies. We have elaborated that there are many works which are not directly outsourced and the manpower of agencies are not fixed to understand the technical works. Hence we suggested that CNTxW Circle should think on utilization of apprenticeship manpower available as per special directives of Government of India. CGM CNTxW Circle asked that where such use has been started by Maharashtra Circle, we have narrated that though association has raised concern, no such action is yet taken and we are pursuing for it, but guidelines are available and same can be effectively utilized by CNTxW Circle. CGM informed that he is aware about guidelines and he has utilized such manpower while he was working earlier in Punjab Circle, and conveyed that this is good source for getting technical manpower with less expenditure. CGM CNTxW Circle assured that his office will also ascertain possibilities of apprenticeship manpower after getting requirement from Area GMs. He asked us to give the copies of orders if available with us so that prompt action can be initiated and we have assured to share the copies of the guidelines on the subject.  

14.             Action on restoration /replacement of unofficially abandoned routes: We have once again informed CGM CNTxW Circle that many of OFC routes are unofficially abandoned by the executives in field units due to non-availability of resources. We also informed that if patch works are taken care on this routes by extending support to the Maintenance teams, these routes can be successfully energized. We also narrated that if required certain length can be replaced with new Cable, but these routes must be brought in use. We have quoted certain examples of important routes how they are useful but neither officially abandoned nor faults are attended and OFC is restored. CGM CNTxW Circle informed that he is aware about the issues and already instructions are issued to field units for same. He further added that his office has already identified such routes and matter is taken with Circles for further coordination and finalization of routes to give stability to local network.

·        This is one more incident confirming facts that how the issues of FC section are taken care with very casual approach and in some cases action is taken by using the powers of Director HR and in some cases issues which are well within CGMT MH Circle are not given consideration for years together by creating dispute by the officers of Staff Section and FC section on taking over and making over of files of FC section and this poor and casual approach is continued for last one and half years i.e. since implementation of VRS 2019 in January 2020.

·        Let us hope , serious note of these instructions are taken by Maharashtra Circle and all pending issues , manmade problems created by officers in Staff and FC section are taken care as per BSNL guidelines and not as per will and wish of the officers as observed and underlined by BSNL Corporate office vide this special letter to CGMT MH Circle.

 2 SEP 21: Status of transfers of JTOs/SDEs in Electrical wing: SNEA MH is continuously pursuing for consideration of pending requests and filling vacant posts by calling options willingness. Accordingly for Telecom, Civil and Account wings the willingness were called but the proposal for Electrical wing was moved without calling for options and publication of data related to justified, working, excess/shortage of executives of Electrical wing in particular SSA/BA.

SNEA MH has raised concern about it and now it is decided to call for options for consideration of transfers in Electrical wing as done by Civil and other wings. This the proposal for transfers processed earlier has been kept aside and process will start fresh starting with publication of Executive strength and Excess/shortage thereof and by calling options for filling vacant posts. As total number of executives working in Electrical wing are less as compared to Telecom/ Account wing i.e. about 100, SNEA MH will pursue for calling for options for filling vacant posts as well as for posting substitute to the executives who have completed three years of stay at working station and have submitted own cost request for transfers. Let us hope for best.
