 21 SEP 18:   AGM Staff Mumbai calls for correct date of actual/physical date of relieving of officers transferred under recent transfers orders and leave cases in respect of these officers are pending with Circle Office for settlement. Letter <<<>>>

·        This is reminder letter as already said data was called but while reporting field units have reported mismatching dates as in case of 21 officers date of “Physical”  joining is earlier than the date of “Physical” relieving and in case of 30 officers date of ”ERP” joining is earlier than the date of “ERP” relieving.

·        Actually, non-relieving of the officers and non-joining of the officers has been viewed seriously by BSNL management and hence since last one month the exercise is being done on day to day basis for finding and fixing responsibilities on the officers for such delayed relieving.

·        SNEA MH has discussed this matter with Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai on 15/09/2018 and settlement of pending leave cases was one of the point discussed.

·        GM HR Admn Mumbai has expressed that some of officers were not relieved for more than 100 days even after reminders after reminders from his office and in such cases review is being taken.

·        He also informed that all the cases where officers are have joined in reasonable time after relieving will be settled and there will not be any issue and only issue is in cases where officers were relieved but have not joined at new place of posting in reasonable time and review is being taken on such cases to bring discipline among the executives and SSA Heads in following and implementation the transfer orders.

·        After detail discussions, he has assured to settle all cases with sympathetic grounds and action will be taken in cases of extreme disobedience beyond reasonable time limit.

·        Accordingly, the data is being called for settlement of pending leave cases and hence DS concerned are requested to send correct details so that leave settlement of about 294 officers from different SSAs is settled without further delay.

14 SEP 18:   AGM A&E BSNL CO issued transfer order of SEEs in which Com. Prakash Khade  SEE Raipur, Chhattisgarh is transferred as per his Own Cost request  and posted as SEE Nagpur, the post which was deliberately kept vacant for last one year in game plan of CEE Mumbai to keep the charge of SEE Mumbai with him. Letter <<<>>>


14 SEP 18:   AGM A&E BSNL CO issued for SEE LA all Over India where there EEs from MH Circle are given SEE LA arrangements. Letter <<<>>>

·        In Maharashtra Circle, this issue was created by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai as then SEE LA Mumbai & Nagpur along with other EE LA & SDE LA were reverted quoting that there were irregularities while issuing LA orders by earlier CEEs.

·        In this game plan, Com.  Jhagaru Ram, SEE Mumbai, who is top most senior all Over India, was reverted as EE and his charge of SEE Mumbai was taken over directly by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai and since then for last one year Shri.  Soni is directly using financial powers of SEE Mumbai.

·        This issue was raised by SNEA MH and requested Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai to fill up vacant posts of SEE Mumbai as well as SEE Nagpur by fresh LA orders.

·        After pressure from SNEA MH, then the willingness were called by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai to fill up vacant posts of SEE Mumbai and Nagpur.

·        Accordingly, some of eligible EEs have submitted willingness for SEE LA and it was expected that SEE LA orders would be issued as per the seniority. However, nothing was done even after receipt of sufficient number of willingness were received and matter was kept undecided by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai and he continued to hold charge of SEE Mumbai and was unwilling to handover it to anybody which he would have to handover to SEE Mumbai if SEE LA orders were issued.

·        SNEA MH has again pursued matter with Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai and after repeated reminders, he has issued orders for SEE LA, but he further played game and has issued SEE LA orders without financial powers and compelled the concerned officers to refuse the SEE LA Orders and continued to keep charge of SEE LA Mumbai with him mainly all the financial powers unofficially/officially continued with Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai.

·        Meantime, Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai transferred Shri. S.B.Joshi, EE Kolhapur and he was assured to give SEE LA at Mumbai as he was eligible and has opted for SEE LA either at Mumbai or at Nagpur, but after his transfer to Mumbai, also he was never given SEE LA charge and he was used to settle local arrangements of EEs as per predefined plan of Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai.

·        When SNEA MH again raised matter with Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai for issuing SEE LA Orders as per seniority and willingness, he informed that Com. Jhagaru Ram & Com. S B Joshi both have refused to accept the SEE LA Orders. We have informed that both have submitted written willingness and how can he say that they have refused, he informed that earlier both were willing and now both are verbally not willing and hence he is not issuing orders. We requested for issuing orders and let them refuse in writing as we have confirmed from both that their willingness continued and have never refused as assumed by CEE Mumbai.

·        Thus Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai continued to keep charge of SEE LA Mumbai with him by continued his childish rather extra intelligent game play to keep charge of SEE LA with him as many financial matters are under control of SEE Mumbai and he do not want to hand over his dealing to anybody else.  

·        SNEA MH has raised this issue in Formal meeting & some other meetings with CGMT MH and brought to his notice how Shri. Rajeev Soni is depriving the eligible EEs from taking over charge of SEE LA and how he is interested to deal with financial activities of SEE LA Mumbai.   

·        Then CGMT MH also has directed Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai to take corrective action, but till Shri. Soni did not act and in extra intelligent idea, he sent proposal with wrong seniority and wrong data to GM HR Admn Mumbai for approval of SEE LA Mumbai/Nagpur, which was naturally rejected by GM HR/Admn Mumbai as it was with malafide intention and was continued to be without financial powers.

·        When this proposal was rejected/objected by GM HR Admn Mumbai, then matter was referred to Shri. Pravin Varshney CGM EW BSNL CO and it was decided that SEE LA orders would be issued BSNL CO centrally for filling all vacant post of SEEs all over India and since last 3-4 months again Shri. Soni continued with charge of SEE Mumbai.

·        Then willingness were called from all eligible EEs all over India as per the seniority list and many EEs have submitted willingness including Com. Jhagaru Ram, Com. S. B. Joshi have submitted willingness respectively for SEE Mumbai and SEE Guwahati.

·        Finally, the SEE LA orders are issued centrally by BSNL CO and these orders are as per the seniority, as per the willingness and with financial powers as being continuously pursued by SNEA MH and thus stand of SNEA MH is once again proved right.

·        Thus the unwanted issue created by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai by denying SEE LA Orders to eligible officers in Maharashtra Circle is finally settled giving justice concerned executives by continuous persuasion by SNEA MH over the period of one year and after final and firm intervention of Shri. Pravin Varsheny CGM EW BSNL CO New Delhi, and hopefully now Shri. Rajeev Soni will handover charge of SEE Mumbai to Com. Jhagaru Ram who was not allowed to function as SEE Mumbai even though he is the senior most EE all over India.

·        SNEA MH congratulates all the officers promoted as SEE LA and mainly Com. Jhagaru Ram, Com. S. B. Joshi after struggle of one year and conveys best wishes for new assignment.

·        We are hopeful that charge handing over and taking over will take place without creation of any further hurdles by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai as being done for last one-year period.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Pravin Varshney CGM EW BSNL CO, Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH, Shri.  Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai for their timely intervention, support to the stand taken by SNEA MH for giving SEE LA promotions as per the seniority and mainly with financial powers to promoted SEE LA and thereby stopping game plan by Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CEE Mumbai to keep the charge of SEE LA officially as well as unofficially with him.

·        We have informed him that relieving of all JAOs may be issued from FC section for all JAOs in single order as many of the IFAs can relieve JAOs and manage the works till joining of new JAOs, and objected for such pick and choose relieving creating unrest among the JAOs under transfer.

·        GM Finance Mumbai has assured to have review of the matter for relieving all JAOs in one order and he firmly informed he was never interested in such pick and choose relieving and has issued orders under compulsions from BSNL CO, but he will take care for future relieving.

·        It has been brought to notice of SNEA MH by some of JAOs that rumors are being spread that the Rule 9 transfers which will not be implemented by Maharashtra Circle will be cancelled.

·        Anyone having critical and urgent need of relieving, he/she may represent for early relieving along with supporting documents through proper channel and all such cases recommended by IFAs/SSA Heads, will be pursued for early relieving from Maharashtra Circle.

2.              If it is interpreted by good office of CGMT MH that working in same city and Circle, but outside BSNL is counted as break in service and hence Mrs. Namrata Tiwari is not coming in long stay, then please apply same principle to all such cases and stay of executives in MTNL Mumbai may also be excluded in similar manner and this may be implemented as Rule in BSNL at least in Maharashtra Circle. 

3.              It is also requested to look into seven point request made by SNEA MH vide letter dated 08/05/2018 which are deliberately neglected in reply given by DGM Admn Mumbai.

5.              Further, the report of Investigation Committee of Nagpur on which it has been concluded by DGM Admn Mumbai that concern of SNEA MH has been looked into should be made public or at least its copy may be please handed over to us so that same can be confirmed by Com Sameer Khare, DS SNEA Nagpur and DS of other Unions/Associations in Joint Forum Nagpur so that they also can understand where they were right or wrong in making such allegations/ compliant and where their concern has been taken care by the committee.

29 AUG 18:  Transparency in meeting shortage of Account wing executives in some of SSAs: CAO FC Mumbai has called for options from account wing executives in SSA having excess executives i.e. Beed, Bhandara, Nagpur, Raigad, Sindhudurg, Goa, Wardha, Yavatmal and Circle Office Mumbai for filling up vacant post of Account wing executives in SSAs having shortage of account wing like Ahmednagar, Amravati, Buldhana, Chandrapur, Dhule, Jalgaon, Latur, Pune and Satara.

·        As neither vacancy has been declared from SSAs having shortage of account wing Executives nor total number of excess executives has been declared in a particular cadre and hence there is much confusion among the executives.

·        SNEA MH also has received some queries about it from many of comrades accordingly Com. Anil Dubey DS SNEA Mumbai and Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH have discussed this issue with Shri. Vivek Mahavar, GM Fin Mumbai on 28/08/2018 and requested him to make the process of equalization of executive strength more transparent and acceptable to the executives so that some executive come forward to meet shortage of executives in these SSAs.

·        We requested him  to declare the vacancies in each SSA having shortage of executives and number of executives excess in each SSA having excess executives so that one understand his position and requirement of BSNL.

·        We also requested him to declare the names of the officer who are long stayed and are coming under zone of transfers to meet shortage of executives and such transparent approach will definitely help executives in deciding their position and where to give option to any suitable location or be ready for the transfer as per the administrative requirement at any of the declared SSA.

·        GM Fin Mumbai responded that transparency is must and this good suggestion can be taken care and directed us to discuss it with DGM FC Mumbai.

·        Accordingly, we have discussed this issue with Mrs. Ashiwni Bhonge, DGM FC Mumbai and she has assured to issue revised letter after discussions with GM Fin Mumbai.

28 AUG 18: Equalization of Excess/Shortage strength of Executives in Account wing: CAO FC Mumbai calls for willingness of the officers in the SSAs having excess Account wing Officers to fill up shortage of the officers in SSAs having shortage of Account wing executives. Letter <<<>>>

·        It has been continuously discussed about excess officers in some of SSAs and units and acute shortage of officers in some of unpopular/tenure SSAs.

·        Since last one year, CGMT MH himself has quoted at many of the occasions that he has never seen about 100 officers of account wing in any office, but Circle Office of Maharashtra Circle has more than 130 officers and he is shocked with such figures and directed GM Fin Mumbai to take corrective actions.

·        But Shri. Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai has shown some extra ordinary results in recovery of outstanding amounts hence he is able to get confidence of CGMT MH and hence is successful in neglecting such direct instructions of CGMT MH for equalization of executives of account wing for period of more than one year.

·        It is fact that when SSAs like Circle Office Mumbai there are more than 130 Account wing Officers as on today and the SSAs like Gadchiroli, Buldhana, Parbhani have just one or two Account Officer that to be JAO level and we can understanding how will be working conditions in these SSAs.

·        Anyhow, now steps have been initiated for equalization of shortage of the executives in SSAs like Ahmednagar, Amravati, Buldhana, Chandrapur, Dhule, Jalgaon, Latur,  Pune and Satara and now the options are called from account wing officers from the SSAs having excess Account wing executives viz.  Beed, Bhandara, Nagpur, Raigad, Sindhudurg, Goa, Wardha, Yavatmal and Circle Office Mumbai.

·        The last date for submission of the willingness is 30/08/2018.

·        It has been mentioned that if sufficient willingness are not received then, the transfer orders will be issued as per administrative requirement.

·        Normally in such excess to shortage posting, the officers with highest long stay in that SSA are shifted, but same has not been mentioned in this letter and hopefully it will be clarified by FC section, about criteria of such transfers.

·        The options are to be given by Account wing executives in only SSAs i.e. Beed, Bhandara, Nagpur, Raigad, Sindhudurg, Goa, Wardha, Yavatmal and Circle Office Mumbai and there is no need of any option from executives working in SSAs having shortage or neither having shortage nor having excess officers of account wing unless he/she is willing for it to avoid future long stay transfer at odd locations.

·        Options can be given for more than one SSA, but executives should think to the depth and give options to only SSAs where they are willing to work on transfer and it is not necessary that first option only will be given consideration.

·        It would have been good initiative and practical approach by FC section that the vacancies in each SSA having shortage of executives and number of executives excess in each SSA should have been declared in this letter along with the SSA wise list of officers who are in long stay list of that SSA having excess strength and are under zone of transfer.

·        SNEA MH will take up matter for such clarity and transparency so that concerned executives can plan accordingly and there should not be any transfer just for name of transfer and it will be purely attempt to fill up vacant post of Account wing officers in SSAs having real shortage.  

·        The executives concerned may also have self-analysis of the data of shortage/excess executives, ascertain their position in the SSA as per the SSA stay of the officers and if coming in zone of transfer to meet shortage, then only he should opt for such transfer.

·        All the transfers to fill up vacant posts in SSAs having shortage will be issued in the interest of service and hence options if any may be given accordingly.

·        In last spell of transfers, some of officers were misguided by some groups/individuals and at last they were sufferers and were posted at odd places causing hardship to the them as well as their family members.

·        For any additional information the officers concerned may get information from officers in FC section or from Com. Hrushikesh Kesale JS AF SNEA MH Mob 9422882888  e-mail or Com. Harish Sable JS Marathwada SNEA MH Mob 9421315444 e-mail

·        SNEA MH appeals all executives in account wing  who are coming under zone of transfers from SSAs having excess officers to shortage SSAs, to have self-analysis of the excess/shortage strength of executives in his/her  SSAs and  then only decide about submission of options as called by FC section. 


27 Aug 18:  “Der Se Ayee, Durust Ayee” feelings in account wing Executives: CAO FC Mumbai issued orders considering request transfer of the executives in Account wing of Maharashtra Circle. Order <<<>>>

·        Though the transfer orders of executives in all wings i.e. Telecom, Civil, Electrical, Arch wing were given consideration in month of April 2018, the request transfers in Account wing were not considered, as there was reluctance on part of Shri. Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai as he was of the opinion that there are excess officers in SSAs where request has been pending and hence transfers will not be issued.

·        Later, it was informed that now Audit is going on and hence request transfers will not be issued till completion of accounting and account closure thereof.

·        But, even after closure of accounts in July 2018, no action was initiated and SNEA MH has taken series of meetings with Shri. Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai and Mrs. Ashwini Bhonge DGM FC Mumbai for giving consideration of all pending request of account wing officers and every time it was assured but the order was not issued.

·        After such prolonged persuasion by SNEA MH, finally, the request transfers of executives in account wing are now given consideration and request of the 18 officers in account wing from JAO &AO Cadre are issued.

·        With this order the executives in Account wing have mixed feeling that “Der Se Ayee, Durust Ayee” as anyhow may it be partial, finally request orders are issued.

·        SNEA MH appreciates, the efforts taken by FC section and concerned officers for giving consideration to 18 request with minimum dislocation as substitute to the officers under request transfers as only four substitutes are posted against 18 officers under request transfer and it has saved lakhs of ruppes as Transfer grant in case of posting substitutes.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai and Mrs. Ashwini Bhonge DGM FC Mumbai, Shri. K. C. Patro, CAO FC Mumbai, Mrs. Supriya Gedam, JAO FC Mumbai for giving consideration to these long pending request of executives in Account wing and we are hopeful that in similar manner the left out requests will also be given consideration in coming days.

·        These are partial orders as it has been decided by Shri. Vivek Mahavar GM Fin Mumbai that request transfers to the SSAs having excess Executives in account wing i.e. Beed, Bhandara, Nagpur, Raigad, Sindhudurg, Goa, Wardha, Yvatmal and Circle Office Mumbai will not be given consideration and steps will be taken to reduce the officers from these SSAs.

·        It is fact that these SSAs have excess officers and CGMT MH has repeatedly pointed out for excess Account wing executives in Mumbai but since last one year, executives are kept under tension and no action has been taken on equalizing shortage of executives.

·        Thus request of officers working at difficult non-tenure places to places having excess Executive strength are not given consideration. May it be with few officers, but this is injustice to the executives who have served at difficult places and are waiting for their request transfer to choice posting.

·        SNEA MH will definitely take up the cases of such officers who are not in long stay list, and we will definitely see that such officers are not deprived from the natural justice and equal treatment.

·        We would not have any problem on such letters calling unwanted data, but it creates wave of threat among the executives that again some unwanted and threatening action is being initiated by officers in Staff Section Mumbai.

·        Since the transfer orders issued on 01/04/2018, the certain officers are misguiding GM HR/Admn Mumbai and CGMT MH by giving wrong data or unable to give correct data under fear and so called terror of CGMT MH, which they are, expressing/showing for such unwanted orders creating fear in minds of these officers.

·        This letter and calling for data of about of about 275 + 275 officers makes us believe on statement of Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH Circle that there is no work in Staff section and it seems that to show CGMT MH that there is justified work in Staff section, such letter calling unwanted data are being issued by AGM Staff Mumbai.

·        Here, some of officers have got transfer on their own cost and have joined new place of posting, but earlier actions for Force relieving through ERP and keeping on hold the leave period including joining period and stopping salary thereof etc has really troubled these executives.

·        Some of these officers have expressed feelings that they are feeling why they have requested transfer as such humiliation continues for four months and we have to believe that these officers are playing dirty games with the sentiments of these officers.

·        It is painful that these officers in staff section have not considered the genuine medical ground cases and the officers with mentally retarted children, cancer patients, kidney fail officers were mercilessly transferred and their genuine medical certificates issued by Civil Surgeon were rejected with say that the certificate is not in format.

·        First, there was reluctance on part of certain officers staff section to process such cases in file and finally some cases after so called scrutiny of staff section were processed in file, and when processed then said request were straight away rejected by CGMT MH Circle and these officers continues to suffer.

·        One case of officer admitted in hospital and undergoing treatment due to failure of both the Kidneys was given consideration when it was directly brought to the notice of CGMT MH.

·        Earlier, when same case was put in file by Staff section and recommended by GM HR Admn Mumbai, it was rejected by CGMT MH and God knows who is right and who is wrong, but sufferer are the executives due to senseless and inhuman approach of these officers dealing with transfer posting, may it be bitter, but it is truth.

·        From the list of 275 officers each for date of relieving/joining attached with letter as Annexure I and II, it is clear that names of officers in both the list are same, but still  two lists are published creating picture as if data is mismatching for about 550 officers under transfer or transferred.

·        Next, out of the officers listed here, the transfer order of many of the officers has been cancelled by Staff section itself, but again their date of relieving and joining has been called.

·        God only can tell these inhuman officers lacking practical approach, when the transfer order of the said officer has been cancelled then how will he/she be relived and how he/she will have date of relieving by working SSA. If not relieved how will he/she join in the transferred SSA and how can he/she have date of joining in new SSA.

·        Transfer orders of many of officer were cancelled/retained by staff section at later date and accordingly date of relieving and joining will be changed but data has been called for all such officers also and may be tallied with ERP reliving, which is naturally different.

·        Transfer orders of some of officers were issued by courting wrong stay and such orders were immediately cancelled by staff section, but now their names are added in this list. Now, all these officers have expressed fear and confusion, where they are still under transfer or their transfer order has been cancelled as per the letters issued by AGM Staff Mumbai. 

·        From the actions for calling data in respect of all officers under transfer, it seems that again, some game plan of harassment of executives is being cooked at Staff section and steps may be initiated to take action against officers, who were relieved at later date of ERP relieving by SSAs and treating this period as absence from duty.

·        But, when these officers were not relieved by the controlling officers/SSA Heads even after relieving officers through ERP, then what is mistake on part of these poor officers, needs to be understood by the officers in staff section.

·        Thus, after period of four months, the dust of unrest among executives due to force transfers, force ERP relieving, issuing Caveat from different courts to same officer, issuing charge sheet, issuing revision of the officers, denying Regular promotions due to issuing such charge sheet, compelling officers for working in lower cadre when they were transferred under looking after arrangements at higher post etc with certain officers was just settled to better extent.

·        But, such letter by AGM Staff Mumbai has again created unrest and fear factor among these executives and their mind is again unnecessarily diverted from the office works on which they have started concentrating and everybody is worried what next step of harassment by officers in Staff section?  

·        There is no need of panic by anybody as being expressed by some of affected executives and let hope that this information has just called for updating ERP data as mentioned in this letter.

·        Till any issue is created, SNEA MH will definitely take up this matter with Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai and Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH for not giving free hand to certain officers in staff section to further play with sentiments of these officers who have already suffered lot and this matter needs to be closed once for all.

·        Let us hope this matter will be settled with intervention by Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH and the executives will no more will be made to suffer for such unwanted interpretation by certain officers in staff section as being done in past four months.

25 Aug 18:  Jt GM Pers BSNL CO issued orders for posting of Two DGMs from BABAITT Jabalpur in Maharashtra Circle. Letter <<<>>>

·        Out of two newly posted DGMs, one is entrusted charge of GM EB Mumbai and posting of other DGM is to be decided by CGMT MH Circle.

·        As on today, there is need of experienced and Regular DGM.GM at Sindhudurg SSA as it is facing lot of problems due to vacant post of GM /DGM level officer for last one year.

·        Here, unwilling DEs with less/no experience of working as SSA Head are compelled and posted as DGMs under Looking After Arrangements, which has not met the exceptions of BSNL customers in Sindhudurg SSA.

·        There is feeling among the customers of BSNL in Sindhudurg SSA, who have strong bonding with BSNL, which BSNL Mumbai office is deliberately neglecting Sindhudurg SSA and hence BSNL is not providing good quality services to customers in BSNL in Sindhudurg SSA.  

·        Let us hope CGMT MH takes care of Sindhudurg SSA by posting Regular DGM, to Sindhudurg SSA, otherwise due to negligence by Circle Management, the highest Revenue Earning SSA will continue to suffer, and local leaders, Hon. MPs and public will continue to express their anguish due to detoriatied Telecom services of BSNL in Sindhudurg SSA.

23 Aug 18:  CS SNEA MH writes letter to Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CE Elect Mumbai with reminder Request for acceptance of Refusal in SDE LA arrangements. Letter <<<>>>

·        Maharashtra Circle management has always taken stand that there is no right for refusal of LA Arrangements and SNEA MH has repeatedly requested to consider the refusals in LA arrangements.

·        The recent clarification issued by BSNL CO has made it clear that the individual executives can refuse LA arrangements and unwilling executives cannot be compelled to accept the LA Arrangements.

·        Accordingly , SNEA MH has written reminder request to Sr CEE Elect Mumbai for acceptance of Refusals in SDE Elect LA arrangements and give justice to deprived comrades


23 Aug 18:  CS SNEA MH writes letter to Shri. Rajeev Soni, Sr CE Elect Mumbai with reminder Request for considering request transfer of executives which are fit as per the Transfer policy guidelines. Letter <<<>>>

·        As per transfer policy guidelines the request of executives working at Tenure stations needs to be considered and same principle has been followed by Telecom, Civil and Account wing but same is not followed in Elect Wing.

·        It is also seen that the executives willing for Tenure stations is encouraged for such posting, but here CE Elect Mumbai has denied such requests.

·        Letter brought to the notice of CE Elect Mumbai about all pending request can be considered with one Own Cost willing substitute and further requests CEE Mumbai for considering these Tenure completed requests to and from tenure stations as being done in other wings and respect the Transfer policy guidelines.  


23 Aug 18:  AGM A & E BSNL Corporate Offices calls for option for posting as SE Electrical under Looking After Arrangements. Letter <<<>>>

·        The issue of unfair practices followed in posting of SE Elect was raised by SNEA MH and we have highlighted politics being played in keeping the post of SEE vacant deliberately and illegally keeping on hold the charge by CEE concerned.

·        When under pressure of SNEA, the SEE LA arrangement was issued, then it was issued partially and in deliberate attempt the financial powers of SE Elect posted in Maharashtra Circle were withdrawn and the criteria of senior junior was also not followed in true spirit.

·        SNEA MH again raised this issue and finally matter has been taken in control by Shri. Pravin Varshney CGM EW BSNL Corporate Office Delhi and earlier on 08/08/2018 options were called from all eligible EEEs and in further focused approach now, options are called by declaring names of officers eligible and vacant of SEEs thereof.

·        Now in further approach towards transparency, the vacancy positions have been declared where no one has submitted willingness and name of the officer who have to submit the willingness also has been declared in very transparent manner.

·        Now, it will be easy to concerned EEEs to understand seniority and vacancy and he/she can opt accordingly when the post is suitable for him/her and there is no compulsions in giving option as it has been clearly mentioned that non submission of willingness is taken as unwillingness of the concerned officer to take higher responsibility and his name will not be considered for SEE La posting in this spell.

·        This is real transparency and we congratulate Shri. Pravin Varshney CGM EW BSNL Corporate Office and his team for such transparent and good HR approach.

·        Such transparent and good HR approach needs to be followed by others while dealing with different HR Issues. Let us hope that others officers take lesson from such transparent exercise and use it in dealing with all HR issues in such transparent manner.

·        Thus, the concern of SNEA MH in transparent and full fledge Looking After arrangement in Maharashtra Circle that to be with financial powers is being taken care with continuous persuasion by SNEA MH at different levels and with different officers for period of more than six months.

·        Finally, orders for SEE LA will be issued as per guidelines on the subject giving justice to all comrades and not as per will and wish of CE Elect concerned as was done in Maharashtra Circle.
