23 APR 19: Transfer Posting within Maharashtra Circle and consideration of Request of Executives on such transfers:

·        It is good to see that yesterday, Circle management approved all the request of the executives who have applied for retention, cancellation, and modification on recent transfers with relevant documents and certificates and it is great relief to the concerned executives in Maharashtra Circle.

·        It is also seen that request for cancellation of transfers under LA arrangements issued during last year as well during this year has been given consideration and concerned officers are retained in the same SSA. The vacant posts are filled with LA arrangements by giving responsibility to senior most officer locally within same SSA and officers from other SSAs and even in same SSA are not compelled to accept the LA arrangements.

·        We must appreciate that when there were guidelines from BSNL Corporate Office to issue minimum transfers, request of all executives in Maharashtra Circle are given consideration in earlier list as well as in this list as per requests submitted after transfer orders issued on 31/03/2019.

·        Though the relieving date on recent transfer was 12/03/2019 and it was directed to relieve all officer by this date else all will be relieved through ERP. With past experience, it was expected by many of the comrades that none of request will be given consideration and all will be force relieved through ERP either on 13/04/2019 or later date in that week.

·        However, surprisingly, this time none of officer was relieved through ERP giving thereby giving full time for submission and consideration of grievances of these officers under transfer.

·        During last year, the ERP relieving was implemented mercilessly and even genuine grievances in grounds of ward education, serious medical issues were neglected and these officers were compelled to join at transferred places.

·        However, this year, there is much change in approach of the management and about all requests including educational ground request are given consideration.

·        May be due to General elections, but this year sufficient time is also given to SSA Heads to relieve these officers after consideration of the representations given by individual to Circle office and minimum required time is also given for submission of their grievances after issuing the transfer orders.   

·        Last year management was so adamant that even the medical ground cases submitted with certificate of Civil surgeon were rejected and concerned officers were compelled to join at transferred SSA. But this year all such forced transfer officers are brought back before completion of two years tenure and given relief, all the request on medical grounds with documents, forwarded through SSA, even request without documents issued by Civil Surgeon, request not forwarded/ recommended by SSA Heads, directly relieved by Circle Office are given consideration. This change in the approach of management over the period of one year is highly appreciable.

·        Many of the comrades have genuine issues at par with these comrades, but have not represented by consideration behavior of circle management during last year and are now feeling that if they would have represented their grievances, it would have been given consideration. 

·        Comrades who have genuine grievances and has not represented earlier due to assumption in mind that management will not consider his/her request, may apply now along with relevant documents without even single day delay and such cases should reach to GM HR Admn Mumbai through DAK or should be submitted by visiting his office personally. In all such cases, till chances of considering genuine request appears, but officers not having genuine issues may not try it as it may adversely effect on request of officers having genuine problems /grievances.

·        This changed approach of Circle management and lenient view on consideration of request of executives will definitely give relief to many of the executives. Now they can simultaneously take care of their family issues as well as office works with more sincerity.

·        SNEA Maharashtra congratulates all the executives who got posting as per their requests and conveys them best wishes for grand success with new assignment on transfers and old assignment on retention/cancellation of transfer orders.

·        SNEA Maharashtra conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH Circle, Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Adman Mumbai, Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Admn Mumbai Shri. B. P. Tambat, AGM Staff Mumbai, Shri. P. B. Bhuse, AD Staff A Mumbai, Com. V. J. Bhandirge, AD Staff B Mumbai and concerned officials in staff section Circle office Mumbai for giving consideration to all the requests given by the executives either before issuing transfer orders or after issuing transfer orders.

·        SNEA MH also conveys thanks to all District Secretaries of SNEA throughout Maharashtra Circle along with all COBs and activist of SNEA MH for consolidating the request of executives in their SSA and timely feedback on all such genuine requests by forwarding it through SSA administration which has resulted in consideration of about all requests.

·        We are hopeful that in similar lenient and changed HR approach the pending request of executives working at Jalna SSA will also be given consideration.

·        If not at least steps will be taken for merger of planning, administrative and centralized activities of Jalna SSA with Aurangabad BA, so that request of concerned officers waiting for transfer from Jalna to Aurangabad can be considered without substitute.   

·        With these retention, cancellation and modification orders, majority of grievances of executives under transfer are settled and we are confident that with change of approach of the Circle management there are chances that the genuine left out request if any are represented through proper channel may be given consideration if submitted with all relevant documents and without wasting time further.


23 APR 19:  AGM Staff Mumbai issued orders considering the request in SDE/JTO giving consideration of all type of request by concerned officers. Letter <<<>>>

·        It is seen that when request from all other SSAs are given consideration none of request only request from Jalna SSA to Aurangabad and Nanded SSA are not given consideration as it require substitute on company cost transfers as total 11 request are under consideration out of Jalna and it is understood that same cannot be considered without substitute.

·        All these are request transfers at Own cost and even the request transfers from and to tenure stations are issued at Own Cost.

·        Though BSNL Corporate office has issued guidelines for not issuing even single transfers from Non Tenure stations at Company cost and keep on hold any such company cost order issued and not implemented, till one JTO is transferred from Panvel in Raigad SSA to Sangli SSA at Company cost.

·        Recently the Head quarter of Electrical wing of Raigad SSA was shifted from Panvel to Pen and officers working at Panvel were asked to give own cost request for transfer from Panvel to Pen. All other officers except Com. Mrs N.M. Bokil has given such own cost request.

·        As it is firmly decided by, management to close the Electrical wing unit at Panvel and as Com. Mrs N.M. Bokil has not given, own cost request for Pen, only she is transferred at Company cost from Panvel to Sangli SSA.

·        Earlier the officers working at Electrical wing at Panvel were not eligible for tenure facilities and after transfer of its HQ from Panvel to Pen all the officers posted at Electrical, wing pen will be eligible for facilities of tenure stations.

·        There are some other request transfers of JTOs in Electrical wing and same are not given consideration as consideration of such request may cause other transfers at company cost.

·        SNEA MH conveys thanks to Shri. Rajiv Soni CEE Mumbai, Shri. P.B. Deore, EE EP  Mumbai and Mrs. Archana Kamble SDE EP Mumbai  for  giving consideration of request transfers in intelligent manner by saving money of BSNL on transfers and also appeals them to consider other pending requests in similar intelligent manner and give justice and relief to the executives in Electrical wing who are waiting for consideration of their requests.

·        Com. Abhay Kesarkar, ADS SNEA Mumbai has taken efforts in pursuing the requests of Electrical wing comrades and SNEA MH appreciates his efforts.

·        After, Telecom & Electrical wing now the request of Finance and Civil wing needs consideration in similar pattern and SNEA MH will purse for same.   


 11 APR 19:  AGM Staff Mumbai issued orders assigning charge of TDM Sindhudurg to Com. A.S. Hon DE Sindhudurg. Letter <<<>>>

·        Sindhudurg SSA is politically sensitive District and the demand of BSNL services in this District is highest among all SSAs in Maharashtra Circle.

·        As per the working lines and need of BSNL services in Sindhudurg SSA, this SSA head needs to be headed by minimum GM level officer, but here even DGM level officer is not posted since last 3-4 years.

·        Many times local public has gheroed , locked staff and officers in offices on name of delay provision , restoration of services or poor for poor services and it has been always threat for officers and staff working in Sindhudurg SSA.

·        Earlier Sindhudurg SSA was Business Area with Ratnagiri SSA, which also has GM level SSA Head post, but now both Sindhudurg as well as Ratnagiri SSAs are headed by DE level officer.

·        As such, though it is most developing and high revenue earning SSA, there is always reluctance on part of the GM level officers and nobody want to work as SSA Head Sindhudurg SSA or even Ratnagiri SSA.

·        It can be seen that Business Area Kalyan covering Kalyan and Raigad SSAs have three PGM/GM level officers as Heads viz. Shri. M.K. Mishra is PGM for BA Head Kalyan, Shri. B.P. Rawat, PGM is SSA Head Raigad and Shri. Hari Om Solanki GM is SSA Head Kalyan.

·        Over the years, the Raigad SSA was headed by DGM/DE level officers and all of sudden; it is headed by PGM level officer as SSA Head and another PGM level officer as BA Head.

·        Same is case with Sangli Business Area covering Sangli SSA and  Satara SSA which are headed by GM level officers wherein  Shri. Ranjan Kumar GM is posted as SSA/BA Head Satara and Shri. Rajesh Kumar GM is posted as SSA/BA Head Sangli and both SSA pare part of single Business Area.

·        When there was only one BA/SSA Head the head quarter of this BA Sangli was at Sangli and after posting of Shri. Rajesh Kumar as BA Head Sangli, in overnight period the Head Quarters of BA Sangli was shifted to Satara as per the requirement of concerned BA head.

·        When Shri. Ranjan Kumar GM was posted as separate SSA Head for Sangli SSA, and then there was issue of reporting one GM level officer as SSA Head to another GM level officer as BA Head and seniority thereof.

·        The issue of seniority has been resolved with recent clarification issued by BSNL CO and all such GM level SSA Heads are allowed to work as independent SSA Heads and there is no need of again reporting to BA Head. Thus in an indirect attempt the concept of BA is withdrawn at least for these SSAs where GM level officer is willing to work as SSA Head. 

·        In similar manner, earlier Mobile unit of Circle office Mumbai was headed by GM level officer with one DGM, now there is no further additional expansion activity, but three DGMs are posted to Mobile section Mumbai and post of GM is upgraded as PGM level officer.

·        Same is case with Mobile units at Nagpur and Pune and many of the PGM/GM level senior officers are accommodated at both these locations for many years as per their requirement even though there is no need of many such senior officers in these units.

·        In Marketing Section of Circle office Mumbai, only one GM and DGM were posted but now, there are two GMs posted and both the posts of DGMs are vacant for long time. 

·        When there are excess GM /PGM level officers posted in Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Kalyan, Raigad, Satara, Sangli BAs/SSAs, the BAs/SSAs like Aurangabad, Sindhudurg, Ratnagiri, Buldhana, Akola, Yavatmal , Bhandara are neglected over the period as these are not suitable locations for concerned GM/PGM officers and nobody is willing for working as SSA/BA Head in this SSAs.

·        The works of BA Head Aurangabad covering three SSAs viz. Aurangabad, Jalna and Buldhana SSA is managed under look after arrangements by Shri. Nitin Mahajan GMT Nashik since transfer of then PGM Aurangabad Shri. Arvind Vadnerkar as PGMT Pune before one year.

·        The works of GM level SSA Heads of Sindhudurg, Ratnagiri, Buldhana, Akola, Yavatmal and Bhandara are entrusted to DE level officers who are promoted as DE Regular before six months and these SSAs are indirectly neglected by giving responsibilities of SSA Head to the officers not having experience even that of working as separate Unit heads and keeping the senior level experienced hands of respective management level underutilised.

·        Let us hope, the Circle management and BSNL Corporate office takes serious note of this imbalance in posting of SSA/BA Heads in Maharashtra Circle and early review is taken for posting officers of suitable level at the vacant post of BA/SSA Heads in Maharashtra Circle.

·        If it is not possible to post suitable SSA Heads even in days to come, it is better to merge the SSAs with BAs and all planning and administrative activities are centralised at BA locations.

·        Hopefully, in any such exercise by BSNL management at Circle Office or at BSNL Corporate office, the priority will be given to the requirement of SSAs with sincere efforts to give justice to these posts by posting respective level officer and not just to completing the formality by sticking name of SSA Head to any officers available at site as being done now.

·        This letter dated 08/04/2019, directs Circles to keep on hold all company cost transfer orders from and to non-tenure stations issued by Circles/SSAs.

·        The clause (iii) of the letter dated 14/03/2019 clearly says that the transfers from and to tenure stations declared by BSNL will continue to be at Company cost.

·        As such, there will not be any change in the Tenure transfer orders issued by Maharashtra Circle and the rumours spread about cancellation of all transfers including Tenure transfers are meaningless.

·        In Maharashtra Circle, no company cost transfer order has been issued from Non-tenure station except one DE from Latur to Osmanabad, and all other transfers from and to non-tenure stations are Own Cost request transfers and these orders also will not be cancelled. 

·        As such, this letter dated 08/04/2019 will not have direct impact on any transfers in Maharashtra Circle either from tenure and non-tenure stations.

10 APR 19:  AGM A&E BSNL Corporate Office writes to all Circle Heads for decentralization of powers for issuing SE/DGM Elect under Looking After arrangements to Circles. Letter <<<>>>

·        Normally, the SE/DGM Elect under Looking After Arrangements were well within the powers of Circles.

·        However, some of circles including Maharashtra Circle were not following these norms and hence in last spell of SE/DGM Elect, the orders for looking after arrangements were issued by EW Unit of BSNL Corporate office.

·        Accordingly, the process started for filling up vacancies after 01/04/2018 is also kept on hold for three years.

·        One side BSNL continues for new recruitments in different streams including units, which under process of merger with other units and other side such schemes for help of families of deceased employees of BSNL is kept in abeyance.

·        In recent past BSNL has taken certain decisions to save expenditure on avoidable works and activities, and attempts are made by taking such further decisions.

·        However, management has to show its inert readiness for such steps by stopping the facilities of staying in Five Star Hotels and withdrawing the decisions to allow the Air Travel by “Business class” to certain selected senior officers.

·        Otherwise, there are chances of mass reactions by the workforce of BSNL and the desired impact by taking such decision will be far away from expectations.

·        Hopefully, management will take and implement such economy decisions for self and first follow it and then direct others to follow so that Money of BSNL can be saved to overcome present poor financial condition of BSNL.

 4 APR 19:  M/S Hungama which has blooded BSNL for last ten years as parasite, now cries fowl against BSNL and is claiming outstanding amount of Rs. 22,14,73,145.00 (In words rupees Twenty Two Crore, Fourteen Lakhs , Seventy Three Thousands , One Hundred Forty Five only) from BSNL for services provided by it to BSNL period April 2010 to February 2019. Letter <<<>>>

·        Now it is open secret that how M/S Hungama has closed thousands of BSNL Connections over the period of last ten years by overcharging for the services not used or used under compulsions created by staff of M/S Hungama on Broadband customer of BSNL by false information and heavy charges thereof.

·        Practically, services by M/S Hungama and its payments seems to be big scam in the BSNL as till now much money has been paid to M/S Hungama by BSNL and till M/S Hungama claims more than Rupees Twenty Two Crores from BSNL as outstanding amount.

·        Many Circles including Maharashtra Circle have raised objections on services by M/S Hungama and heavy charges thereof causing loss to BSNL Customers and customer loss to BSNL by repeated letters.

·        However, no one from BSNL Corporate office has acted against M/S Hungama and now BSNL Corporate Office is calling reports for making arrangements of funds for so-called outstanding amount of M/S Hungama.

·        Here, BSNL do not have money to pay Electricity Bills, No temporary advances has been granted for three to four months, many of the contract workers, vendors have not received payment for months together even though they have provided dedicated services and works in the filed units have come to stand still position.

·        But, BSNL Corporate Office seems to be busy with arrangement of funds that to be in Crores of Rupees for payment of outstanding claims of M/S Hungama for last ten years. This makes the picture crystal clear why BSNL is losing its market share over the period and why its losses are increasing day by day.     

·        All such vendors have looted and are looting to BSNL in Crore of Rupees and many of us blindly signs the claims and reports of such fraudulent vendors and indirectly support direct loot of beloved BSNL.

·        Though it is fact that many such vendors are looting BSNL , but media, DoT, Govt Of India are blaming the employees of BSNL for losses of Thousands of Crores to BSNL and propagating for reduction of age, VRS , lay off, closure of BSNL etc which is not correct.

·        Time has come that everyone has to rise occasion and come forward to stop such direct and indirect loot of BSNL Money. Please understand that it is nothing but loot of our salaries and our future in BSNL along with future of BSNL.

·        We all should oppose all such fraudulent actions of many such vendors who are looting BSNL Money without any justified work or rather by causing damage to BSNL.

·        Thereafter MH Circle relieved some of JAOs and some of JAOs who approached BSNL Corporate Office were directly through ERP.

·        Though many of IFAs, CAO Mumbai, and DGM FC Mumbai have shown readiness to relieve these JAOs, there was reluctance on part of GM Fin Mumbai and has taken stand that let BSNL Corporate Office relieve these JAOs directly, he will not object for it.

·        SNEA MH was continuously pursuing this matter at all levels and finally the relieving order has been issued for all left out JAOs and now these JAOs will be relieved either by closure of account or by 30/06/2019 which is later.

·        Hopefully, this will be convenient for all JAOs and till anybody has some serious and genuine issue and cannot wait for three months and substitute JAO is already posted, may represent their case through proper channel with such clear recommendations of IFA concerned.
