We have discussed the matter with him that there are total 20+ cases and if we follow this process then even in 2 years we cannot clear the backlog of this transfers. He said he agrees with our association view but discuss the matter with CGMT MH Circle. Accordingly we have discussed the matter with CGMT Shri Rohit Sharma ji.

(2) Regarding start of allotment process at Powai and Dadar(Prabhadevi) Staff Quarters – We brought to the notice of CGMT that as per the recently issued Presidential orders for land monetization, the orders are issued for Powai Plot B and C. Thus there are no directives for monetization of Powai, Plot A which is having the residential staff quarters and similarly no directions for Dadar(Powai). We insisted that the process for vacating staff quarters shall be stopped and the allotment process for these 2 colonies should start.

13 July 2023 :  Appeal from SNEA  MH to all the Members of all the associations to unite under the banner of SNEA to get resolved all the issues of executives and for welfare of all executives of BSNL.

At the Behest, SNEA MH will like to thank the executives of MH Circle for showing faith on the leadership of SNEA and opting for the Association. Already SNEA, MH is having membership of 1300+ and during this Membership Change window 200+ executives have joined SNEA till date.

SNEA 2.0 CHQ is an unanimously elected body of SNEA giving representation to all recruitments, cadre and batches.

SNEA 2.0 is committed towards resolution of issues of   Standard Pay Scale(E2/E3), Promotions in all Cadres – DGM/AGM/SDE/CAO/AO,   Telecom/Finance/Civil/Electrical/PA/PS/Architecture.

3rd PRC.            PRMB.          30%SAB 


The present MA has shown dreams to all the BSNL recruits that they will resolve all the issues of the BSNL Recruits. In last three years as a Majority Association what they have achieved – A Big Zero. The MA could not increase SAB by even 1% in last 3 years. They have not even done anything in getting E2/E3, E1+5 etc. The only achievement as an MA is long stay transfer motivated by political aspirations rather than welfare of executives. The MA claims that they have got the promotion for JTO to SDE but think who have halted them by filing case in Ernakulam. Because of this case the BSNL recruits of year 2000  had to wait for nearly 20 years for their first promotion.

Now when the MA knows that they have not fulfilled a single promise and the members who have once kept faith on them are departing them, then they have started to import Ex Leaders of SNEA to hide their failures.

It is a sincere appeal to all the executives of BSNL to unite under the banner of SNEA to get justice for the long pending issues of the Executives.

         A message is being made viral in social media probably by one of the association in social media to gain advantage in upcoming MV.

          The message seems to be addressed to CS,MH from Karnataka SNEA member stating some wrong facts about our GS,SNEA M S Adasul when actually no such message communicated to Circle Secretary,SNEA,MH Circle. This act by the association implies that the association is worried of the increasing strength of SNEA.

31 May 2023 : CS SNEA MH  Circle writes to GM(Accounts & Finance) regarding the publication of Long Stay list before issuing the transfer orders 

         The extract of the letter is as below :

 First of all I want to thank you for considering and issuing some of the Rule 8 & Rule 9 transfer orders of JAO’s and extending them a relief and a chance to unite with their family. I hope that you will consider remaining cases of Rule 8 and Rule 9.

Sir, it is learnt that the transfer orders for accounts and finance wings are to be issued shortly. It is to bring to your notice that the long stay list for JAO/AO is not published till date. One list is published on MH intranet on 24/05/2023 in response to SEA Corporate office letter dtd 18/05/2023 but can’t be referred as long stay list. It is thus requested to publish the long stay list for JAO’s and AO’s before issuance of any transfer order. This is much needed for having transparency in transfer and posting.

I will like to put forth some issues for your consideration while issuance of transfer order

In accordance with the transfer policy followed by the telecom wing

(1) The Accounts person completing tenure in Tenure Station should be posted to their choice station.

(2)  The long stay executive in circle should be utilised as replacement against Tenure station executive.

(3) For non- tenure to non- tenure transfer the transfer shall be implemented on point to point basis.

Also I wish to put forth that there are certain SSA’s where there is acute shortage of Accounts wing executive. I request you to post proportionate staff at all stations as per the restructuring policy guidelines.

The CS have again written to CGM for settlement of new HR issues created due to instructions from corporate office regarding Intra Circle Rotational Transfer and letter from some BA Heads to submit BA level body for consideration of immunity to the Office Bearers. Letter>>>


Following issues were discussed in Depth with CGMT,Shri Rohit Sharmaji and GM(HR & Admin),Shri Nakhale ji –

(a)  Issuance of long pending Tenure Transfers – We bought to the notice of CGMT,MH Circle that the executives are waiting for issuance of Tenure Transfer orders since August 2023 and now they have completed more than 2.5 years in tenure station. Initially CGMT opined that we should advise the members to work in tenure station for a period of 3 years. We strongly objected and told that there exist a transfer policy and according to the transfer policy guidelines the tenure period is of 2 years. The tenure stations are declared as Tenure due to difficult working conditions and because of being non-popular stations and if the period is increase to 3 years no executive will willingly opt for tenure station. We also asked CGMT,MH Circle to issue orders for Tenure stations whose tenure period is completing upto September 2023. We also apprised him that due to 3rd Membership Verification to be held tentatively in August-September 2023 and so it is necessary to issue orders at the earliest as after issuance of notification there will be halt on Transfer orders. CGMT told that they are waiting for issuance of inter circle rotational transfer orders and the Tenure transfer orders will be issued soon after the issuance of this orders.

(b)   Regarding Intra Circle Rotational Transfers – We told the administration that SNEA is not against the issuance of Intra Circle Rotational Transfers but the Transfers should have some ground in accordance with various clauses provided in Transfer Policy guidelines. We also quoted that if the orders are to be issued then they must issue the orders for JAG and SAG as well who have completed their Post Tenure. We also advocated that the executives who are willingly working in Tenure Stations shall not be disturbed in name of Rotational transfer as most of the Tenure stations of MH circle are good revenue Telecom districts and they are so mainly because of this local staff working in tenure stations. We also told that the rotational transfers may be issued only on basis of excess/shortage in respective SSA.

(c)  Non Publication of OTP request Data – We requested the administration to publish the OTP requests received upto January 2023 so as to bring transparency in transfers.

(d) Immunity to office Bearers – It is brought to the notice of Circle Administration that some BA have issued letters to provide the BA wise District Body of the association for grant of immunity. We apprised the administration that as per our constitution and constitution of almost all Unions and associations the provision for Office Bearers at BA level does not exist and the issue is taken up by SNEA CHQ with Director HR and may have an outcome more sooner than later. It is thus requested to wait for some more period before asking for the BA Level Body of Office Bearers.

(e)  Regarding Monetisation of Staff Quarters at Prime location of Mumbai -We brought to the notice of Circle administration that the decision of management to monetise the Staff Quarters at various location of Mumbai will cause hardship to more than 200 families residing in the quarters. We also told the administration that they should take up the matter with CHQ to stop the processs for monetization of these properties. We also told the management that the cost of hire accommodation at  Mumbai or Sub Urban area is very costly and not manageable in the amount of HRA given by BSNL. We also conveyed the management that as per Article 21 of Indian Constitution a Right to live with dignity is the fundamental right and the management is infringing this basic right. We told that SNEA MH will stand strongly with the affected employees and will also raise the issue through AUAB,MH Circle.


The delegation then met GM(Finance),Shri Mahawar ji regarding the issuance of Rule8/Rule 9 pending cases of JAOs. We recalled our last discussion with GM(Finance) where in he has assured that the Rule8/Rule 9 transfer orders will be issued in March 2023. We requested GM(Finance) for early issuance of these orders. He told that he will do the needful for issuing the orders.


The delegation then met CE(Electrical), Shri Dhananjay Kumar ji to thank him for issuance of SDE (E) Look After orders. We also requested him to consider for early issuance of the request transfer orders of Electrical Wing. CE(E) assured that he will look into the matter and try to get the orders issued at the earliest.

03 OCT 2022 :

               It is very unfortunate on part of BSNL Maharashtra in general and  SNEA Maharashtra in particular. Despite assurance given by then CGMT MH on 21.09.2022 in front of GM HR , then  CGMT MH happily  retired on 30.09.2022 on   superannuation retirement by keeping  194 request transfers pending. Not a single Rule -08 transfer issued by then CGMT MH despite hundreds of requests. Even tenure transfers are also not issued. Then CGMT MH  followed only illegal Ghar Wapashi Policy and not   followed the BSNL Maharashtra  approved transfer policy .SNEA Maharashtra condemn such act of then CGMT MH Circle.


     BSNL Maharashtra has highest EXECUTIVE strength of SNEA.SNEA Maharashtra played very vital role in   achieving the target. SNEA Executives are working hard in each and every vertical of BSNL Maharashtra. Our executives are working in fields units under extremely difficult conditions & they are the reason Maharashtra circle has achieved the Revenue target of 540 Crores plus. Ofcourse management is taking efforts but grass root efforts are being taken by our Executives who are mostly members of SNEA.

          All the waitlisted executives of OTP list are very unhappy because of non issuing of request transfers even after working hard day & night & completing their tenure at respective stations. Then CGMT has badly brought down their moral by not giving them justice.

          But Comrades, do not panic and do not get frustrated. New CGMT Sh Rohit Sharma has took over the charge of BSNL Maharashtra circle. I know he is very practical officer and knows each and every difficulty of field officer. We are proud to say that not a single request transfer is pending under CGM CNTX West & we are very hopeful the New CGMT MH will understand the plight of the deprived executives & give them well deserved justice. SNEA delegation is going to welcome new CGMT Sh Rohit Sharma shortly. We will take up pending request transfers & other pending issues along with development issues during the welcome meet.



02 OCT 2022 :

                                     Best wishes on occasion of


                          Mahatma Gandhi Gayanti..

                                -  SNEA Maharashtra.

                                    to all employees of BSNL.

We further requested to release all the request transfers in respect of Telecom, Civil, Electrical and finance by end of May 2022 as new academic year and school /college admissions are already started. Our executives are eagerly waiting for request transfers.

In reply ,GM(HR) told that the transfer orders of such officers will be issued who has already transferred during the period April –May 2020.Means they will be bring back to their original section. For example, suppose two officers are transferred from Pune to Satara in transfer order April- May 2020, same officers will be bring back to Pune. No further transfer orders will be issued either from Pune OR from Satara. This is total injustice and harassment on executives of BSNL Maharashtra by circle administration by keeping all guidelines of approved transfer policy aside.   How circle administration can frame any rule by their own without taking any association into confidence?

We strongly oppose such stand of circle administration and requested to issue all transfer orders of all executives who has applied in JAN-OTP and left over cases from 22.05.2021 orders.

We also requested to consider the representations of affected executives in recent transfer order issued by corporate office i.e. more than 26 years orders.

·      All the three associations have demanded for transparent working and sharing of entire information and CGMT MH also has agreed for same before one month period, but till data is not published on intranet.

·      During discussions, it has been informed by GM HRA Mumbai and same has been confirmed by CGMT MH that there is shortage of about 1100 executives among Telecom wing executives and hence officers in staff section are confused in deciding the SSA there is neither shortage of executives in account wing and nor they are excess. In Civil wing there is shortage of executives, and there are excess executives in JTO Cadre of Electrical wing of Maharashtra Circle. 

·      As such, there are chances that more executives will be posted to Maharashtra Circle in all wings except Electrical and Account wing and chances of transfers of executives declaring them excess from any wing of Maharashtra Circle except Electrical are less.

·      Hopefully, at least now the SSA wise Justified, working and shortage/excess Strength of executives will be published by Staff section.

8 MAR 22:: DGM HRL Mumbai published list showing names and options submitted by Executives under OTP window which was Open from 16/01/2022 to 31/01/2022  for Intra Circle transfers.  SDE/ JTO <<<>>>    AGM/AO /JAO   <<<>>>    SDE E/ JTO C/E <<<>>>   

This is special action taken as per request of SNEA MH as step towards transparent working. This list includes all names which were not given consideration and were asked by Staff section to submit fresh application under OTP.

During last discussions, it was assured by CGMT MH that all these pending Requests transfers will be given consideration in last week of March 2022. Accordingly list of requests for Intra Circle transfers received under OTP is published.

Normally individuals are aware about the status of his/her OTP request for transfer, but others who will be under zone of transfers as substitute are not aware about the incoming requests to their SSA and in confusion they are not able to submit options for post which will be vacant where they can accept transfers when it is due. 

This data will give idea to all such executives who will be under zone of transfers either after implementation of these request transfers or to fill vacant posts at different SSAs having shortage of executives about their position and where he/she has to opt for any of suitable SSA for him/her or to be ready for transfer at any of SSA which will have shortage after implementation of these transfers.

SNEA MH has already taken up matter with CGMT MH for more transparent working by publishing list of request transfers, SSA wise Strength of executives showing shortage /excess executives, List staying show of executives having excess executives and so and in first stage the list of all intra Circle OTP requests are published.

Hopefully, now the SSA wise excess shortage data with updated stay particulars of Executives from SSAs having excess strength will be published.
