17 JUN 19: AGM Staff Mumbai calls for willingness from JTOs/SDEs and PAs for posting on deputation to DoT Mumbai by putting certain restrictions to work on such deputation to DoT. Letter <<<>>> 

·        As per DoT letter attached with this letter willingness are called by DoT, on 22/01/2018 and last date for receipt of such willingness by DoT was 05/03/2018 and the Maharashtra Circle calls for willingness on 17/06/2019 i.e. after period of one and half year.

·        AGM Staff Mumbai has written letter calling willingness as on today means there are still vacancies and this letter is till valid because after this letter by DOT, MH Circle has not yet deputed anybody to any DoT.

·        As per DoT letter there are vacancies of SDEs and JTOs in DoT units at  Pune, Goa, Nagpur and Mumbai but Circle Office Mumbai  has called willingness only for DoT Office n Mumbai for total 9 post of JTO/SDE and one post of PA /PS.

·        Nothing has been mentioned about vacancies at Pune, Goa, Nagpur but it is understood that vacancies till exists in these DoT units Pune, Goa, Nagpur and the Senior Officers who earlier worked in BSNL and now working in DoT are pressing hard for experienced officers from BSNL.

·        Also posting of JTOs/SDEs from BSNL to these DoT units will be helpful for BSNL as there officers will deal with cases of BSNL Maharashtra Circle while in DoT Mumbai only cases of MTNL are taken care and no work of BSNL is related to DoT unit in Mumbai.

·        Earlier Circle Office BSNL Mumbai has taken stand that DoT Mumbai is out of jurisdiction of BSNL Maharashtra Circle and BSNL cannot post executives out of its jurisdiction and some of executives working in DoT Mumbai were forcefully called back even by stopping their salary from ERP.

·        But stand of Circle Office Mumbai for posting such officers on deputation of transfer to other units is always seen as biased and it changes time to time depending on the pressure created by the officer concerned willing for deputation to DoT or officers from DoT in need of junior officers.

·        When there is need to fill up all vacant post in DoT i.e. at Nagpur, Pune and Goa, but willingness has been called only for DoT Mumbai.

·        It seems that someone has created strong force on officers in Circle Management to fill up vacant post in Mumbai and there may be idea to post certain specific officer/s in DoT and hence willingness are called only for DoT Mumbai by quoting one and half year old letter.

·        Otherwise there much need of officers in WTR, WTP, BBNW, and ITPC Circles within territory Maharashtra Circle and even for BBNL and some of them have written many times for posting of JTOs/SDEs but all such letters are shown dust bin by BSNL Maharashtra Telecom Circle.

·        Many of the officers have submitted Own Cost Request willingness for same and waiting for orders for last two years, but nothing has been done even to meet serious and urgent requirement of WTR to maintain fault free services, but officers in BSNL Maharashtra Circle do not bother about it and only few are posted on pick and choose basis.

·        While calling for willingness certain restrictions by DoT and now Maharashtra Circle also has put certain restrictions on such willingness to DoT Mumbai viz. completion of two years n working SSA, officer is not under transfer to any other assignment and officer should not be in list at top five position in all India Long stay list from MH Circle and should not appear at top 40 position of SSA long stay list being operated for posting to Tenure stations.

·        Though such restrictions are put up, it is seen that such restrictions are just for name sake and anyone who has skill to manage the transfer can get posting at any such place and we have observed this in some of recent orders issued with violations of such restrictions.

·        Let us hope Circle Management calls willingness to fill up vacancies in DoT units at Pune, Nagpur and Goa SSA and many of the officers in BSNL will opt for DoT, as it has five days week working pattern, salary is being paid by DoT and he/she will be surely  getting monthly Salary payment from DoT which is now days uncertain in BSNL.

·        As such all the JTOs/SDEs willing to work on deputation in DoT may have self-analysis and submit their willingness by email on directly and last date of submission of such willingness s 25/06/2019.

·        Letter states that non-recovery of Electricity Charges and Rent from BSNL Credit Societies by BSNL is revenue loss to BSNL.

·        It is mentioned in letter that this action is being taken as per directives of BSNL Corporate office, but no any such reference letter has been attached/enclosed with this letter.

·        Further, it is pointed out that some of Credit Societies are using AC units but Electricity is not being paid and it is revenue loss to BSNL.

·        Letter reiterates that no officer below the rank of DGM is eligible for AC units in office and till many ineligible officials are being allotted AC units and all such cases needs review.

·        Though it has been directed to applicability of Electricity charges and rent, nothing has been mentioned about method of its applicability and rate applicable thereof and period from which date such rent and Electricity is to be applied by filed units.

·        In Circle Office Mumbai, which is direct under control of CEE Mumbai for allotment of AC Units, many of the ineligible officers are provided with AC units in offices and series of complaints have been received against such misuse and revenue loss to BSNL.

·        But, no action has been taken to withdraw AC units provided to such ineligible officers in Circle Office Mumbai and directions are being issued to field units for same, which shows seriousness about implementation of such orders.

·        From this letter, it seems that by neglecting security of these installations and equipment’s, further efforts are being made to reduce the left out 25% Security Guards as if there is nothing to be secured in BSNL in days to come.

·        Many of the comrades have reported that the expenditure being done for works through tenders is much more as compared to attending these works through contract labors, but same is being deliberately neglected. 

·        From the actions of BSNL Management over the period of last one year, it seems that BSNL management has fixed the target to make BSNL free from contract labors.

Many Government offices have started to give important lease lines, mobile connections and BSNL is being neglected. He elaborated how with introduction of 4G services by BSNL in 3G spectrum has adversely affected the BSNL customer growth due to compulsions for changing majority of handsets not compatible with BSNL 4G services.

·        Com. M. S. Adasul, Circle Secretary SNEA MH in his elaborate speech appreciated Latur District for giving two stalwart leaders Com. M. N. Kotambe and Com. S. R. Bhise, who are leading SNEA from the front. He appreciated that as all Latur pattern have been successful over the period, this leadership pattern from Latur District has been found very useful and successful for SNEA and BSNL throughout Maharashtra Circle. Many of the Latur comrades are serving BSNL at different Districts and prominently leading different positions in SNEA and BSNL. He explained the present situation of BSNL and its position in today’s Telecom scenario. He narrated that present uncertainty on future of BSNL will be cleared after outcome of ongoing Loksabha elections. Many of the pending HR & Development issues will be decided by new Government and we all will have to patiently wait for it. He elaborated facts about ongoing discussions on VRS and proposal initiated by DoT. He said that VRS, from name itself is optional and it is never compulsory to anybody. Hence anyone who is in need of VRS, let him opt for VRS and others may continue their services without opting for VRS. SNEA has not opposed VRS nor supported it. VRS has been implemented in MTNL repeatedly, but it has not benefitted MTNL in its financial stability. He appreciated views expressed by DS BSNLEU in support of VRS and stressed that VRS option needs to be actively supported by Govt of India by proving funds required for it and VRS should not create more burdon on BSNL, which is already facing losses. As per present news from different sources, the VRS for BSNL workforce is in active consideration of DoT/ Government. On reduction of superannuation age from 60 to 58 years, he has informed that chances of implantation of age reduction are less as it will have impact on decision makers itself and there is need of equal treatment for all PSUs at par with Government employees. Also it is understood that proposal of age reduction is not agreed by present BSNL Board. He requested all comrades to work hard for BSNL, and to regain the work culture of attending faults in time. He added that entire telecom sector is in danger and naturally, the situation of BSNL is also dangerous, but we can get rid of it with sincere efforts by all. He added that financially BSNL is the strongest company with minimum loan. There is multi corers loan on Jio and all other telecom operators and this company is enjoying tax benefits as new entrant company. BSNL is strapped in policy decision and when private companies have taken about six lakhs Crores of rupees loans from banks, DoT has not given letter of comfort to BSNL for few hundred corers of loan. BSNL will run definitely but it is in the hands of employees if we work hard, if we concentrate of the mobile segment and lease line segment, FTTH and restoration of faults in time then no any operator can defeat us. He thanked all the Marathwada comrades for extending their unconditional support to him and SNEA MH. He conveyed thanks to leaders of SNEA Latur for arranging such beautiful Conference and giving him opportunity to have direct interaction with all the comrades of Latur SSA.           He assured house that the present situation will definitely change and only required is we all have to change ourselves to certain extent and work with focus of Profit of BSNL. We will have to make deep analysis and take immediate action to improve or close the loss making Exchanges/BTS and stop anymore recurring losses.

1 JUN 19:  CGMT MH Circle issued note cum advise to SSA/BA Heads, IFAs and Unit Heads in Circle Office Mumbai as per discussions in the Video Conference held on 01/06/2019. Letter <<<>>>

·        Now days Video Conferencing are being held so frequently and many of the SSA/BA/Unit Heads are not taking note of the discussions in such video Conferences and hence CGMT MH may have decided to issue such Note cum advice with his signature and it is issued within hours of this Video Conference.

·        Hope at least now SSA/BA/Unit Heads will bother to such important discussions and take corrective actions.

·        This letter covers major points related to growth and development of BSNL in different SSAs of Maharashtra Circle.

·        Letter stress for immediate need of review of various processes in view of formation of new Government and Ministries and meeting expectations thereof.

·        The letter says in clear words that it is observed that most of BA Heads are not holding and not providing leadership in their SSAs, which is neither expected nor appreciated.

·        Letter stress for availability of mechanism at Business Area HQs to supervise and assist SSA Heads in true spirit.

·        There will be no transfers because of Merger of SSAs with BA HQs and SSA Heads will continue to functions with full administrative and managerial authority.

·        This merger of SSAs with BA is only accounting and Finance wing adding burdon of SSA to BAs.

·        GM HR Admn Mumbai and CE C Mumbai are directed to utilize excess manpower after activity of merger of SSAs with BA and deployment of additional officers gainfully in the interest of service.

·        This letter covers ten important points like Digital India, OFC/CM Maintenance, Monsoon Precautions, generation of demand, TR outstanding, and Breath analyzer etc.

·        But it seems that there is no discussions held in the Video Conference about how to meet the goals set in view of the drastic reduction Manpower on Security, reduction of Manpower of EOIs, No clearance of payment of vendors deployed in Maintenance works, non-grant of temporary advances, Shortage of stores even for mtce works, Nonpayment of Electricity Bills of many exchanges/units, Nonpayment of rents of for months together and many such burning issues with field officers.

·        The discussions and letter thereafter seems to be one way communication from Circle Head to SSA /BA Heads and the issues from filed units seems to be neglected which is major issue in meeting aim of achieving different goals as mentioned in this letter.

·        Hopefully, one such session by Video Conference will be arranged in which SSA/BA Heads will be allowed to put on records about their burning issues and their expectations from Circle management.

·        SNEA MH has always demanded for restoration of authority ad powers of SSA Heads and it is good that stress has been given for same in this letter and let us hope that SSA/BA Heads gains their authority to decide on growth and development of their SSA depending on local situation.
