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. 

 

29 AUG 18:  Approval of long pending TBP Order of different SSAs:  The long pending proposals from different SSAs for different TBPs which were kept on hold for last one year on name of need of caste validity has been approved by CGMT MH and most probably all the TBP orders including major order of Nagpur and Pune SSA will be issued today or tomorrow.

·        With this dilemma and confusion created over the TBP and caste validity is now clear and the Time Bound Promotions of many of the executives which were kept on hold will be released.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH, Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai, Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Admn Mumbai, Shri. M. M. Apte, AGM Estt Mumbai, Shri. M. R.

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 ac.finsneamh@gmail.com or Com. Harish Sable JS Marathwada SNEA MH Mob 9421315444 e-mail harish_sable23@yahoo.com

·        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. 

 

27 Aug 18:  AGM Staff Mumbai calls for either date of relieving from working SSA  and/or date of joining at transferred SSA and reason given is same is not updated in ERP. Letter <<<>>>    Reliving Date <<<>>>     Joining Date <<<>>>

·        It is written in letter that data has been called to update these dates in ERP as data of ERP and actual data differs.

·        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.

20 AuG 18: GM CLO BSNL CO conveys Most Urgent  decision of Parliament Committee on Welfare of Schedule Caste and Schedule tribes about action to be taken on Caste validity of executives and non-executives in BSNL. Letter <<<>>>

·        The authenticity of caste validity is burning issue in BSNL over the last one year and specifically in Maharashtra Circle it is at extreme peak as more and repeated complaints are received against staff and officers in Maharashtra Circle.

·        Accordingly, time to time directions are issued by SCT Cell BSNL CO to deal with such complaints about fake caste certificates and some of directives are issued with the signature of Director HR BSNL Board.

·        Accordingly, BSNL MH Circle has directed SSA Heads to get caste validity and take action on the employees of BSNL against whom compliant of fake caste certificate has been received and some of officers have been kept under suspension, some are issued with charge sheet etc.

·        This matter was twisted in Maharashtra Circle as majority of names in such complaints of the fake caste certificate are from Maharashtra Circle and some officers who has to act on verification of the caste of the BSNL employees have not taken proper action on it at that particular time and matter was kept pending for long time.

·        When pressure was created by office of CLO Cell, BSNL CO then issue was diverted from verification of caste to validity of the caste and even action has been initiated against some of BSNL employees for whom verification process has been completed but he/she has failed to submit caste validity certificate.

·        As the verification report received from SSAs were not sent to SCT Cell BSNL CO, the picture has been created in BSNL that all the officers against whom compliant has been received are not having authentic Caste certificate and have claimed posts in BSNL under reserved category with bogus certificate.  

·        The main issue in this entire process was procedure for confirmation of authenticity of the caste validity and method thereof and same s cleared by recommendations of this committee.

·        While SCT cell has directed for getting Caste Validity, many of the executives have expressed difficulties in getting caste validity and have also conveyed in writing that caste verification is to be done by BSNL and the Caste validity is applicable only for the employees of the Govt of Maharashtra and not for the employees of Govt of India and hence for employees of BSNL, which is PSU, but same was not given consideration by BSNL.

·        On the basis of such complaints, in Maharashtra Circle steps were initiated to call for caste validity from all employees of BSNL under reserved category even though no compliant has not received against them and hence everybody joined BSNL under reserved category and not having caste validity in hand was under fear and tension for last few months.  

·        Now, this letter makes it clear about the procedure to deal with the cases of caste validity at initial stage as well as when complaint has been received against any employee of BSNL about his caste after employment in BSNL and directs to take following three steps.

1.     To check candidates with caste certificates getting employment in the company, the verification of caste certificates should be done at the initial stage of recruitment process.

2.     The existing pending false caste certificates cases should be vigorously followed up with the certificate issuing authorities and dispose them within three months.

3.     The Hon'ble Supreme court in its recent judgment says that all the employees who have got their caste certificates verified by revenue Department /District Magistrate and found false should be terminated from the service.

·        This letter is great relief to majority of the executives and non-executives of BSNL under Reserved Category n Maharashtra Circle as complaints have been received against about 200 executives and Non Executives and others were also under tension created by Recruitment Cell of BSNL Maharashtra Circle for not accepting Caste verification and compelling employees for applying for caste validity.

·        It was expected that these guidelines will be followed n Maharashtra Circle, but as expected the matter is again referred to SCT Cell BSNL CO asking clarification to BSNL CO that the earlier guidelines issued by SCT Cell and these guidelines are contradictory and hence needs confirmation which guidelines are to be implemented.

·        SNEA MH has discussed this issue with concerned officers and manly with Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai and requested him to give relief to the effected executives by accepting their caste verification certificates already received by recruitment cell and call for same from others who have not yet submitted the caste verification certificate.

·        But GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there is confusion in the two letters issued by SCT Cell and hence unable to implement and his office is asking clarification on it from SCT Cell.

·        We have brought to notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai that there should not be any confusion as it is rule that latest orders supersedes all earlier orders, but he insisted for same as he has already written letter on this matter and let same be confirmed by SCT Cell BSNL CO.

·        He assured that whatever clarification will be issued by BSNL CO,  it will be followed in Maharashtra Circle and his office has no issue in it and only intention in calling clarification is that facts needs to be get cleared when doubts are visible or confusion is seen in the letters issued by same office.

·        As these latest guidelines issued as per the recommendation of Parliamentary Committee for welfare of on Welfare of Schedule Caste and Schedule tribes specifically for employees in BSNL, there are less chances that some contradictory clarification will be issued by BSNL as doubted/expected by some of officers.

·        As such, further course of action by Maharashtra Circle will be decided after receipt of clarification from BSNL CO, but meantime concerned officers should work on getting verification process completed if not completed earlier, as this letter directs to complete caste verification process within three months and as per directives of Hon Supreme Court the if caste certificate is found fake in the verification process, then such employee is to be terminated.

·        SNEA MH will not support any such Executive whose certificate is found fake in verification process and we cannot allow such extreme misuse of the rights/ posts of executives under Reserved Category by others by adopting fraudulent methods, but at the same we cannot give free hand and allow the certain officers in BSNL to harass all the executives under Reserved category in mass as being done now.

·       SNEA MH will continue to support executives who have authentic caste certificate and which has been /will be duly verified in verification process and see that such officers are not made to suffer further and matter is settled for authentic officers in time bound manner.   

 

18 AuG 18: The routine process of issuing Time Bound Promotion order kept on old on name of caste validity has been restored by Establishment Section as order for E4 to E5 TBP under EPP which kept on hold for last one year has been issued now.  Letter <<<>>>

·        Some of the “Extra Smart” officers in HR Section, Circle Office Mumbai and some members for Committee for TBP  have linked the complaints about authenticity of caste of some of officers with the Time Bound Promotions and have kept on hold the TBP of the officers against whom complaints about authenticity of caste was pending.

·        When these officers got free hand from higher officers to go ahead with it, then they have increased their area action plan and have linked DoPT order issued in 2007 with TBP and have indirectly stopped Time Bound Promotions of all officers in “Reserved Category” from telecom wing regardless of pendency of any such complaint against these officers. .

·        Many of the TBP orders are pending for period of more than one year as this politics was being played for last one year in step by step manner and finally TBP order were issued only for OC category executives and in total disgusting manner in same order all the executives from Reserved category i.e. SC, ST and OBC who were also due for Time Bound Promotions were directed to apply for caste validity and it was clearly mentioned that their TBP orders were issued only after receipt of caste validity.

·        It is fact that many have submitted the caste validity certificate during recruitment process, but same also was not checked and in fresh action all were directed to submit Caste validity and their TBP was directly denied.

·        Most important point is that this dirty game was played by certain officers in HR section dealing with “Telecom wing” and only officers under reserved category of Telecom wing were affected.

·        The officers in other wings like Civil, Electrical, Account and Architecture did not have any such malafide intention and hence the officers under reserved category from Account, Civil, and Electrical and Architecture wing were given Time Bound Promotions without any such hurdles.

·        When the officers in Staff/Estt section were applying there dirty mind in harrsing the executives by stopping the TBP and asking for caste validity, BSNL Corporate Office issued Regular promotions of all the officers without applying any such conditions.

·        It was facts is that the Establishment section which is dealing with TBP was totally paralysed during last one year as even no single officer was posted and then matter was taken up by SNEA MH and now one AGM and Four SDEs are posted in Estt Section but as all are new they are fully guided by Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai, who is fully and extra experienced hand of HR section, who has his own interpretation that Caste Validity is must for all TBPs and hence all these new officers of Estt section have proposed files as per his valuable directions depriving executives from Reserved category from their right of TBP.

·        We are surprised to see that when there was acute shortage of officers in Estt Section, and about all works were stalled for months together, the whatever manpower was available in Estt Section was used to harass the executives of Reserved Category and in systematic manner the TBP orders of reserved category officers was kept on hold. 

·        Then Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Mumbai was able to connivance the GM HR Admn and CGMT MH to the extent that TBP of all reserved category Executives should be kept on hold and it should not be limited to only officers against whom the compliant has been received and finally Time Bound Promotions which were delayed for last one year were indirectly stopped.

·        Unfortunately, these officers in HR section who has some game in mind were able to connivance Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai who in turn convinced Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH for keeping on hold TBP of all officers in Reserved Category for want of the Caste validity.

·        It is fact that Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai has blind faith on action and integrity of Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Mumbai and whatever Shri Patil points out as per his interpretation it is being taken as Rule of BSNL by Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai and cases are being processed in such directions.

·        When Shri. B A Patil, DGM HR Mumbai has got such precious Confidence from his “Boss”, he should have used it preciously and cautiously, but unfortunately it did not happen and we see that it is being used to harass the executives under Reserved category just to prove the intelligence and extra power of interpretation may be under fear of complaints and may it be just skin saving approach.

·        It is really painful that the facts were exaggerated to the extent that officers in OBC Category who do not have any reservation in any promotions, were also given tension by extending the scope of the complaint against the caste of certain officers and it is feeling of many of the executives in Maharashtra Circle that certain officers in HR section have joined hands with the complainants on caste validity and they also want to harass the executives under Reserved category.

·        Normally, as per BSNL CDA rules, these officers in HR section have to work for upliftment of executives under Reserved Category and here in totally opposite actions, the steps were/are taken against all the Executives in Reserved category on name of complaint about caste of some of executives.

·        In APR of BSNL officers, there is column where the officers was courteous towards the  officers under Reserved category, and here entry needs to made in APRs of these offices playing dirty game of stopping the TBP of reserved category officers so that no one dares to play and work against Reserved category Officers or even will not think to join hands in such dirty games depriving the executives in Reserved category, but unfortunately these officers are given free hand to harass the executives for period of more than one year who used it to prove their hypothetical  Extra Smart intelligence which practically do not exist.

·        SNEA MH has raised its voice against such deliberate discrimination and mass harassment of Executives under reserved category and brought the facts to the notice of Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai in series of meetings over the period and with such keen persuasion he in turn has taken review of it, but it was limited just to asking clarification from BSNL CO and follow it.

·        But as usual, no clarification was issued by BSNL CO, then again we have taken up matter with Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai & Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH and then on 03/08/2018, GM HR Admn Mumbai has assured us that he will write one more reminder letter to BSNL CO and wait for a week or fortnight and if no clarification is received he will release all TBP Orders.

·        But meantime, Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH Circle has understood the gravity of the issue and before proceeding on leave from 09/08/2018, he has given clear instructions to Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR Admn Mumbai to release all the TBP orders conditionally and when on 10/08/2018, SNEA MH has reminded Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai on this issue he has conveyed the stand of CGMT MH to us.

·        Accordingly, this is first order and work for releasing all other TBP orders pending for last one year and hopefully all TBP orders will be released in this week itself and thus with keen  persuasion by SNEA MH all the Executives under Reserved category will get their rightful Time Bound Promotion pending for last one year as all the pending TBP orders will be issued in coming week

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai & Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH for reviewing the stand of keeping on hold TBP promotions of all Reserved Category Executives after understanding the issue to the depth and giving justice to the executives who were kept under unwanted tension for period of more than one year.

·        Hope in days to come, the officers in HR section will not make such attempts to harass the executives and treat them with real HR approach required for efficient working of Executives n any efficient organisation.  

·        Till anybody has any issue about pending TBP and feel that his/her case is not resolved, then he/she may contact to Com M.N. Kotambe ACS West SNEA MH Mob 9423881100, Email mnkotambe@gmail.com

16 AuG 18: Settlement of delayed payments of Salary and Stipend of newly joined JTOs: The JTOs who have newly joined in different SSAs in Maharashtra Circle are facing hardship as their Stipend as well salary has not been credited for last two months.

·        This issue was reported to SNEA MH in last week of July 2018. Since then we have taken follow up on day two days basis and issue was pursued with different officers and offices and with such prolonged persuasion it has been resolved but it took three weeks’ time.

·        The work was initially delayed as the procedure for creation of PERN has been changed and now it is being generated centrally and also in last week of July the Pay Role was locked in ERP for running salary.

·        Thereafter certain issues were reported in ERP which took time of more than one week for practically creation of PERN. Finally matter was partially settled on 10/08/2018 as the ERP issues were resolved by ERP Team at BSNL CO and PERN were generated for all these JTOs.

·        Since then the other related works were going on in different offices and finally the details about dues to be paid to these JTOs have been reached to CSC Mumbai for disbursement of payments. Accordingly all the dues will be remitted to the bank accounts of concerned JTOs within day or two.

·        Till any of the JTO has any issue related to his/her payments, he/she may please contact Com Ankit Gangar, JS HQ SNEA MH on Mob 9420685756 or email a.gangar@gmail.com 

·        No doubt, one and half month delay cannot be justified for such important works and definitely it is due to careless and casual approach of staff section in dealing with HR issues.

·        Normally in good HR management, such issues needs to be taken care as routine matter and there should not be any need of persuasion by anyone, but nowadays such working is missing in Circle Office Mumbai and we just can hope for improvement in days to come.

ON 72ND INDEPENDENCE DAY OF INDIA,

SNEA MH WISHES

A VERY HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO ALL.

 

15 AUG 18: On the eve of Independence day, Long played Football Match on “grant of VCs” concluded as expected without any extraordinary results:  The football match on grant of VCs for posting order within Maharashtra Circle in respect of 11 SDEs on their DE Regular promotion which was played between Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai & his team has been come to conclusion on the eve of Independence Day and all 11 officers promoted from SDE to DE are given relief by completing formality of issuing their posting order within Maharashtra Circle as it is where it is basis. Order <<<>>>.

·        Comrades may remember that there was high level conflict and so called “Football Match’ on grant of VCs for promotion of 11 DEs between Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai for their posting within Maharashtra Circle.

·        Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai and his team has taken stand that till VC is not issued in clear words i.e. VC is clear or withheld, he will not issue posting order of these 11 officers within Maharashtra Circle on their promotion as DE and Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai his team has taken stand in consultation with CVO BSNL that once VC has been issued for DPC at BSNL CO, no fresh VC is required at Circle level as demanded by GM HR Admn Mumbai and his team.

·        When conflict was not resolved for 10 days, then SNEA MH has taken up this matter separately with Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai but both were firm on their stand and no one was ready to review it.

·        Then SNEA MH has requested Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH Circle to resolve this conflict and make permanent arrangements to avoid such unwanted delay and make it routine procedure. Letter <<<>>>

·        But after intervention of Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH, as being done in all cases,  this matter was “escalated” at higher level to BSNL CO as none of the officer in Maharashtra Circle has capacity and ability to decide such simple issues and issues are always being sent to BSNL CO for clarification/s.

·        Accordingly with consent of Shri. Peeyush Khare, CGMT MH to get clarification from BSNL CO, Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai has taken up matter with GM Pers/Jt GM Pers BSNL CO telephonically as well as in writing but even after waiting for one week no clarification has been issued by BSNL CO and these 11 officers were kept under tension for last 24 days.

·        After Vidarbha tour in last week, when SNEA MH leaders have taken short meeting with Shri. Amana Jaiswal, GM HR/Admn Mumbai on 10/08/2018 evening hours to know the status of posting order of 11 DEs, GM HR Admn Mumbai was annoyed and expressed that why SNEA is pursuing this matter so hard for and he also expressed his concern why so many officers are calling him for posting of just 11 DEs.

·        We made him clear that his office has made this simple issue complicated and hence these officers are worried where they will get promotions or not as already 20 days are over and if posting orders would have been issued by his office in time, then there was no need of persuasion on our side as well by individual officers including some SSA Heads as quoted by him. 

·        We also narrated that rumors are being spread that these 11 officers are not getting DE posting as VC of all these officers are withheld and hence there is immediate need of issuing posting orders.  

·        Finally, GM HR Admn Mumbai clam down and informed that during his two days leave, Shri. Peeyush Khare CGMT MH has called Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Mumbai and has instructed him to issue orders subject to VCs with intimation to BSNL CO. Knowing this we have insisted him for issuing orders on that day itself, then GM HR Admn told that it is already 1800 hrs and firmly assured to issue orders on morning of next working day i.e. Monday and we also agreed for that.

·        But unfortunately nothing was done on Monday full day as Shri. B. A. Patil, DGM HR Mumbai was on leave. As such, in the evening hours, we reminded Shri. B.P.Tambat, AGM Staff Mumbai and to our surprise he informed that he has not received any instructions from GM HR Admn Mumbai or DGM HR Mumbai and he has not processed file for posting of 11 DEs.

·        We have requested Com. B. P. Tambat, AGM Staff Mumbai to discuss this matter with GM HR Admn Mumbai and when he discussed then GM HR Admn Mumbai directed him to process the file, but by then it was again 1800 hrs of Monday and that day file was processed by AD Staff Mumbai and reached to AGM Staff Mumbai and hence order was not issued.

·        On next day i.e. on Tuesday it was expected that order will be issued in the morning hours, but as officers in Staff section have intention to delay order, nothing happened in full day as file was kept with GM HR Admn Mumbai and with our reminder request in the evening hours, same was sent to Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra Looking After CGMT MH, but since afternoon he was busy with Video Conference of NOFN and file was not cleared as it was sent in very casual manner and with big note and nobody clears file with such big note without discussions.

·        By understanding the fact that file will not be cleared today also as there is total reluctance on part of officers in HR/Admn Section Mumbai, Com. Anil Dubey DS SNEA CO Mumbai and Com. M. S. Adasul CS SNEA MH Mumbai reached to office of CGMT MH and waited for completion of VC and it was again 1800 hrs of Tuesday 14/08/2018, when CGMT LA was free from Video Conferencing.

·        After that we met Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra Looking After CGMT MH, and informed him about the issue of posting order of 11 DEs and urgency thereof. In response, he informed that he is aware of the issue but file will be cleared on 16/08/2018 as he has been made to understand by somebody that VC of all 11 Officers are kept on hold and till it is insisted that DE promotion order should be issued for this officers and hence he needs some time to understand the issue and complications thereof. 

·        We have narrated him the entire episode and childish stand taken by senior officers for last 20 days under influence of biased juniors and how these 11 DEs are under tension for last 20 days, Shri. Mishra immediately acted and gone through file and big note has been written by officers in Staff section. He asked us what was stand of regular CGMT MH Shri. Peeyush Khare and we have informed him that he has already issued direction to issue orders on 08/08/2018, but since then six days passed but order is not issued by GM HR Admn Mumbai and his team deliberately as they want VCs from GM Vig Mumbai in format as expected by them  and with our persuasion on day to day basis for last fortnight, now file has been sent to his office by 1600 hrs today for his approval and we requested him to clear it today itself as it is already too late.

·        After getting detail feedback from us, going through the VC Report available in the file, Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra CGMT MH LA discussed this matter telephonically with Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai who repeated his side and story thereof.

·        Then Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra CGMT MH LA called Shri. Keshav Rao, GM Pers BSNL CO Delhi and GM Pers clarified that there is no need of fresh VCs and in similar manner posting order has been issued in all other Circles and it is only pending in MH Circle. He also clarified that there is no need of special VC as insisted by GM HR Admn Mumbai and posting orders may be issued on the basis of information given by Vigilance section certifying that there is no case is pending against these officers.

·        Finally, after understanding the facts to depth that to be within no time, Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra CGMT MH LA was kind enough to approve the orders for posting order of 11 DEs within Maharashtra Circle as it is where it is basis and file was sent to GM HR Admn Mumbai by hand.  

·        But, when we found that even after approval of CGMT MH no moment was seen in Staff section to issue order, we again met Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai, and as expected by us he was again annoyed and asked us why we are so much behind this order. We have made him clear that file approved by CGMT MH is marked by him to DGM HR Mumbai and it will be pending up to 16/08/2018 as Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR is on leave, then he said what will happen if order is issued on next day. We made him clear that when AGM Staff and AD Staff are available in office and order is ready and approved by CGMT MH then what is problem in issuing order today. He informed that the order is small issues for him and he is busy with some serious matters since morning and hence not giving importance to this order. We told him as it is very small issue hence needs to be cleared today itself as  now nothing is left and only file kept in his office needs to be handed over to AGM Staff directly without waiting for Shri. B A Patil, DGM HR Mumbai.

·        Finally, GM HR Admn Mumbai called Shri. B. P. Tambat AGM Staff Mumbai and handed over him file directly with directions to issue posting order today itself and accordingly at 1930 hrs the posting order of these 11 DEs was issued giving one sided full stop  to “Football Match” going on between Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR Admn Mumbai & his team with Shri. J. B. Chavan, GM Vigilance Mumbai.

·        Thus the high level Football Match on grant of VCs and individuals understanding thereof which was continued for 24 days has been concluded without any results and all 11 DEs got relief from the tension they were facing due to this unwanted Football Match of last 24 days since their promotion order was issued by BSNL CO on 20/07/2018.

·        SNEA MH conveys sincere thanks to Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra CGMT MH LA for his prompt action and concluding this unwanted “Football Match” and getting all facts clarified from all concerned telephonically within no time and setting examples for other about efficient working and capacity to handle the conflicts.

·        Hope all other officers in Maharashtra Circle will learn lesson from him about how to settle such unwanted issues within no time and how to go ahead with positive thinking keeping focus on major works.

·        It is unfortunate that nowadays the officers in HR (Human Resource) Section has lost  Human approach and each and every matter is twisted, taken much time to decide and if decided then it is decided to call for clarification from BSNL Corporate office.

·        It will not be exaggeration if we say that Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai is with Civil background and new to HR issues has very good and gentle Human Approach but this good quality in him is disappearing day by day as he is under total influence of Shri. B. A. Patil DGM HR Mumbai who is extra curious, want to play safe game in each action and expert in creating confusion in mind of Shri. Aman Jaiswal, and it should not reason for worry to us, but we are worried because here sufferers are the executives in Maharashtra Circle.

·        Not only in this issue of posting of 11 DEs and want of VCs, we have seen such inhuman approach of HR section in dealing with many other issues like exaggeration of facts in looking After arrangements, issuing caveat notice, relieving through ERP, issuing pick and choose LA orders neglecting seniority and vacancies thereof, relieving of the officers through ERP, Issuing charge sheet to officers not accepting LA arrangements, then reverting such officers on joining new SSA on name of Charge sheet,  delaying rather denying Leave cases received from different SSA Heads for months together, transfers of SDEs/DEs to NRUs, long pending promotion order of PA to PS, issuing minutes of the formal meeting, biased approach in dealing with immunity cases, Deliberate action to de-recognize the SNEA Nanded District Branch and keeping matter shunting n files without any action and indirect support to GMT Nanded for his illegal action, issue of the caste validity and its exaggeration beyond limits creating compulsons on all Executives under reserved category, unwanted linking of Caste validity with TBP promotion and indirectly keeping all TBP order on hold for months together, clarification required  under immunity to office bearers and so on.

·        From this, it appears that the officers in HR section want to play each and every game of office work safely and either matter will be delayed on name of detail study and or it will be delayed by calling clarification from the Corporate office as if there is no capability in these officers for right and human approach interpretation of the letters to give relief to the executives and this is really dangerous.

·        Unfortunately “Who Cares” attitude is growing in HR section, Circle Office, BSNL Maharashtra Circle and even with intervention of higher officers like CGMT MH, the issues are twisted and kept pending for months together to prove the intelligence” of the officers in HR section may be due to fact that CGMT MH is of the opinion that there is no need of intelligence for working in HR section.

·        SNEA MH will continue the vigorous persuasion of the pending HR issues to give justice to all its comrades by raising voice against all such deliberate actions of certain officers in HR section of Circle Office Mumbai. 

·        Let us hope that on eve of 72nd Independence of India, the executives in BSNL Maharashtra Circle get relief from this dirty politics and fear factor working of certain officers in HR section deliberately harassing executives for no fault on their part and let us pray God to give “Human Approach Wisdom” to these officers dealing with HR issues of executives in Maharashtra Circle.

11 AUG 18: Meeting with Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai: Com. Abhay Kesarkar JS NRU SNEA MH and Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH had discussions with Shri. Aman Jaiswal, GM HR Admn Mumbai on 03/08/ 2018 on some current pending HR issues. The detail of discussions is as follows. 

1.     Publishing updated SSA wise Executive Strength: SNEA requested for publishing SSA wise working strength on MH intranet. As usual, GM HR Admn Mumbai told that he will give it final shape and then it will be uploaded. We have informed him that this is routine matter and data is being changed every month and it was regularly published on monthly basis but it has been stopped all off sudden and it creates confusion among the executives. We also requested to publish it because since long time it has not been published and reason also is not given for not publishing it. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to publish available data immediately and assured that updated data will be published regularly.

2.     Pending request on medical grounds: We have brought to his notice genuine medical ground cases, which were not given consideration by Circle Management. In response, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that all the cases were processed in file and CGMT MH rejected cases and now he cannot process these old cases except there are specific instructions from CGMT MH. We have informed him the two specific cases on medical grounds i.e. case of Com. A. P. Kulkarni JTO Beed, whose case has been recommended by Civil Surgeon Beed in prescribed format as asked by CGMT MH, and another case of Com. A. H. Waghmare SDE Satara and both are transferred to Ratnagiri. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the reply to letter by SCT Cell BSNL CO on complaint of Com. A H Waghmare is being sent. He further assured that if request of Com A.P. Kulkarni has been received with fresh recommendations of TDM Beed with Medical certificate in prescribed format by Civil Surgeon then his case will be processed in file and it will be decided by CGMT MH. We also brought to his notice the genuine medical ground cases of Com. M. M. Murpe, JTO Bhandara to Nagpur, Com. Bhushan Ghorphade JTO & Com. Mrs. S B Ghorphade JTO Pune to Kalyan, Com Ashish Patil & Com Mrs Ashwini Patil Pune to Kalyan and Com. Geeta Kowe Sahoo JTO Bhandara to Nagpur were not considered in last spell and since then we are requesting for its consideration, but not considered. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured that all these medical ground cases will be given consideration in spell of Sept 2018.

3.     Request transfers of JTOs to & from NRUs: SNEA MH reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai that he has assured to consider the request transfers of JTOs to and from NRU Circles i.e. WTR, WTP, ITPC and BBNW etc after completion of transfers within Circle but till same has not been taken care. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has planned to consider all these requests , but could not consider due multiple work load increased over the period, but assured that these cases will be given fresh look and most probably all such requests will be given consideration by or before spell of transfers in Sept 2018.  

4.     Request transfers pending for Mobile:  We have brought to the notice of GM HR/Admn Mumbai that though some request are given consideration to Mobile many request are pending for mobile section and needs consideration. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to look into it, but informed that the matter needs to be settled at SSA level and he will take care of posting to Mobile Nodal Pune only and such requests will be given consideration in spell of Sept 2018.

5.     Forwarding of pending requests of SDE/DEs for TERM, BBNW, WTR, WTR and other Circles: We have brought to the notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai that since last seven months the request of SDEs for TERM, BBNW, WTR, WTR and other Circles are kept on hold in his office and no action has been taken on it even after assurances of CGMT MH in formal meeting. We also brought to his notice that now willingness also called by BSNL CO for such posting, but nothing has been done on part of Maharashtra Circle to forwards the cases. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there was delay as he want to update data of long stay within Circle, out of Circle in respect of all officers and he want to quote it in the forwarding letters if any of the officer has been posted to tenure stations within Circle on long stay or is part of long stay list for all India Transfers. Now, same data has been updated and request of TERM Cell have been already sent and assured that the request for all other Circle including NRUs will also be sent within 2-3 days. He directed us to get copies of such letters from AD Staff B Mumbai/AGM Staff Mumbai.

6.     Issuing orders for posting within MH pending for want of VCs and need of streamline procedures for getting timely VCs: We have brought to notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai about undue delay in issuing the posting orders within Maharashtra Circle just for want of VCs in prescribed format. We also brought to his notice about our discussions with GM Vig Mumbai and concerned officers at BSNL CO Delhi and there is no need of fresh VC for issuing posting orders as once same has been taken care by DPC Cell BSNL CO. However, GM HR Admn Mumbai insisted that if it is so then, why it has been mentioned in the Promotion Orders. We requested him to issue the pending order of 11 DEs and matter may be taken up for later cases. We also brought to his notice that posting orders have been issued by all Circles and this matter is pending only in Maharashtra Circle due to this conflict. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has done in similar way for all other promotions and matter needs to be settled once for all. He further added that Vigilance Section is not ready to give VC status in clear words and Promotion order says CGMT concerned has to ensure the pendency of Disciplinary case, Vigilance case or pendency of punishment order and hence as per directions of CGMT MH he has written letter to GM Pers BSNL CO calling clarification where fresh VC is required or not and if not then why it has been mentioned in promotion orders. He assured for getting this clarification early by personal talks to Jt GM Pers and GM Pers BSNL CO and asked 2-3 days’ time for issuing posting orders of DEs promoted on 20/06/2018.

7.     Consideration of request of DEs from SSAs having excess DEs to SSAs having shortage of DEs: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai towards issue that SSAs like Sindhudurg have excess DEs and SSAs like Ratnagiri, Raigad have shortage of DEs and some DEs from Sindhudurg SSA are willing for Ratnagiri and Raigad SSA or other SSAs having shortage of DEs. Same is the case in some other SSAs and such request from DEs needs to be given consideration. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there are excess DEs in MH Circle as 536 DEs are now posted in Maharashtra Circle against sanctioned post of 405 DEs and hence there are chances that excess DEs from MH Circle will be posted out of MH Circle and hence he has reluctance on consideration of such requests. We have brought to his notice that the DE promotions are issued by up gradation of DE post and sanctioned post are doubted as upgraded posts are nearly as that of sanctioned posts and hence sanctioned post of DEs in Maharashtra Circle are also doubled. Also in every Circle now minimum required DEs are available and hence chances of transfers are less. Then GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he will decided such requests after DGM Regular promotion orders which are expected shortly and decision will be taken on the basis of how many DGMs/DEs will be retained in MH and how many will be shifted out of Maharashtra Circle and accordingly action for rearrangements of DEs with MH Circle will be decided. We requested to consider these cases from Sindhudurg SSA to Ratnagiri/Raigad SSA as Sindhudurg SSA has excess DEs and Ratnagiri/Raigad SSA have shortage of DEs. We also requested for any other changes of DEs, the data must be published on MH intranet on excess /shortage and willingness may be called for to fill up shortage if any in any of the SSA and accordingly decision may be taken on the basis of the guidelines followed by BSNL CO to shift on basis of long stay or the seniority of the officer. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to look into it and also assured that whatever policy will be followed by BSNL CO, same will be followed in Maharashtra Circle also.

8.     Preparation of Circle Gradation list of JTOs in Maharashtra Circle: SNEA MH informed that though the efforts are being taken by Estt Section to update CGL/AEIL of JTOs in MH Circle, there is no reasonable progress in giving it final shape. Except Maharashtra Circle, data of all Circles has reached BSNL and one such reminder has been issued by Pers cell. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he is aware about the situation and by understanding its urgency and need of accuracy, he is not only personally monitoring the matter but he himself is working for purification of AIEL data and has given certain shape to the list. He wants to ascertain the details of about 60-70 JTOs out of about 400 JTOs for which data was mismatched. He was optimistic that the entire work will be completed within 2-3 days and by 05/08/2018, data for AIEL of JTOs in MH Circle will be finalised and sent to BSNL CO.

GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he was not aware about SCR to be sent to BSNL CO as many works are going on. However, he assured that he will look into it personally and see that SCR is finalised and sent as early as possible.

The Group Term Insurance proposal was till now with GM Fin Mumbai and in recent meeting, CGMT MH has given him directions to finalise the Group Term Insurance proposal. Accordingly, he is on job, he has collected basic data for it, and very shortly, proposal for Group Term Insurance will be processed in file for approval of CGMT MH and assured that this proposal will be finalised by end of Aug 2018 and he will try his level best to get competitive rates from insurance companies. On reasons for rejection of proposal for benevolent fund, he informed that matter may be discussed with CGMT MH.

He insisted that all views expressed by SNEA in its letter cannot be accommodated in minutes , but he will try to make it as per the discussions held in the meeting and also assured to issue minutes by next week or latest b 20/08/2018.

12.   Equal Treatment and applicability of rules while granting immunity to the OBs of associations: We have elaborate discussions on this issue and SNEA has pointed out biased actions by his office in dealing with immunity cases and undue favour to Com. P.G. Wankhade DS AIBSNLEA Amravati. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that it is not biased approach and it was matter on delayed request by Com. Wankhade as he was of the opinion that he will be automatically retained and no need to apply fresh and hence his office has accepted his direct application and sent it to GMT Amravati. He also stressed that some politics being played at Amravati as his application was accepted by GMT Amravati and GM HR Admn propagated that there is nothing wrong in receiving the application at later stage and granting immunity when it is due. We objected that how he receives the application directly once the officer is relieved, then he narrated that he has taken similar action in other cases also and threatened that if SNEA stresses for same, he will apply it for all other cases including requests of SNEA. We have clarified him that SNEA has no objection if rule is applied equally for all and he has to accept that his office has worked in biased manner as other cases were recommended by SSA Heads and were delayed in his office and fresh recommendations were called by his office with written letter and by giving names. But in case of Com Wankhade, case was not sent through proper channel and there was reluctance on part of office GMT Amravati to recommend the case, once officer was relieved from Amravati. We alleged that his office has worked in biased manner and has done undue favour by issuing posting order as SDE Yavatmal at Amravati. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that politics is being played at Amravati SSA and he has taken action as per guidelines only and nothing is wrong on his side but he was not having answer to our question why he has not given such treatment to request of Com. B. R. Kamble DS SNEA Nanded when request was recommended by GMT Nanded and he replied that matter is under consideration and final decision will be taken as per reply from GMT Nanded.   

13.   Action against Shri. Nitin Rokade, GMT Nanded for illegal de-recognition of SNEA Nanded Branch: On this GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that Shri. Nitin Rokade, GMT Nanded in firm on his stand and he has sent second reply also that his decision on de-recognition of SNEA Nanded is correct and has given justification of the complaint of Com. B. N. Totod Ex President SNEA Nanded. When we have brought to the notice of GM HR Admn Mumbai that Com. Totod has raised certain grievances in March 2017 and same have been clarified in March 2017 itself and then District Body has been approved and what happened to de-recognise District Body in May 2018 needs to be clarified. We also stressed that GMT Nanded cannot play dirty politics and same cannot be supported by Circle Management. We also stressed that GM HR Admn Mumbai is indirectly supporting GMT Nanded for his illegal action as matter has been kept shunting in files since May 2018 and no proper action is being taken on it. Recent reply of GMT Nanded has been received by AGM Staff Mumbai before one week , but no action has been taken on it and deliberate attempt is being made to delay the works and continuing the de-recognition of SNEA Nanded. We also pointed out that his office is biased in this matter as when case was recommended by GMT Nanded, what made AGM Staff Mumbai to get copy of old complaint and create hurdle in the request of immunity of Com. B. R. Kamble, DS SNEA Nanded and we raised strong objection on such discrimination by GM HR Admn Mumbai and his support to wrong doings under overacting by  AGM Staff Mumbai who has some malafide intention in putting such unwanted complaint in file and twisting matter to the extent of de-recognition of District Body of SNEA Nanded.  On this argument GM HR Admn Mumbai was annoyed as he was not able to justify the unwanted actions of AGM Staff Mumbai and hence tried to close matter with assurance that the latest reply from GMT Nanded will be sent to SNEA for comments if its copy has not been marked to SNEA MH /SNEA Nanded and comments of SNEA will be taken into consideration, and after receipt of the reply from SNEA further course of action will be decided in this matter.   

14.   Settlement of grievances of officers forced relieved through ERP by settlement of leave or joining period: We informed that salary of many of the executives is kept on hold by many of the SSAs even after their joining new SSA as per the transfer order. This has been done as per the instructions of his office in posting orders. Many of the officers have not availed leave and have joined new place of posting after relieving by the concerned SSA. But this period from ERP relieving to actual joining is being treated as absent period even though there is no mistake on part of individual. We also brought to his  notice that some of officers who have joined at transferred SSA under LA arrangements are served with charge sheet and on name of charge sheet they are reverted and the very purpose of their transfer to hold higher position under looking after arrangements is defeated. There are many such cases and salary of many of the officers is held for no mistake on their part. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that his office receive such request and all such cases are being processed in file one by one. He further assured that all these requests will be processed in file and decision will be taken shortly.

15.   Issues with pending orders for SEE Nagpur /Mumbai as per LA guidelines: On this GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has sent letters conveying his views on matter of SEE and now action is to be taken by CEE Mumbai. He informed that LA orders are to be issued as per all India seniority of the executives in that particular cadre. On financial powers for SEE under LA arrangements, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that under LA arrangements financial powers are to be given action on part of CEE Mumbai to issue SEE LA orders needs to be reviewed. But he added that his role is over now and directed us to take up matter with CEE Mumbai.     

16.   Request under transfer policy guidelines by Electrical wing executives: We have drawn attention of GM HR Admn Mumbai toward the cases of Executives in Electrical wing who have submitted refusal in LA arrangements and whose cases are fit for acceptance of refusal as per the transfer policy guidelines, but even after months’ time no action has been taken on such cases, rather CEE Mumbai is pressing hard for relieving of these officers. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has cleared the files received from CEE Mumbai on the subject and further course of action is to be taken by CEE Mumbai and directed us to take up matter with Mr. Rajeev Soni, CEE Mumbai.  

17.   Unwanted linking of caste validity with TBP and direct denial of TBP to executives in reserved category: We have elaborated him about the mass unrest among the executives due to unnecessary linking of caste validity with TBP promotions delay of years together in approval of TBP cases and made it clear that certain officers from his office are intentionally playing with sentiments of executives under reserved category and making indirect attempts to deny the rights of these executives. We made it clear that there is no roster in TBP, rather caste has no relation with TBP but some extra intelligent officers in his office have exaggerated facts and harassing the executives by withholding their TBP as TBP of about all executives in Reserved Category are kept on hold. Earlier all TBP cases were kept on hold for period of more than six months without assigning reason but indirectly matter was caste certificates, When matter was pursued by SNEA MH, then TBP cases of OC category executives were cleared but TBP cases of executives in Reserved Category are kept on hold rather indirectly denied and all these officers under reserved category are kept under tension by calling caste validity certificates. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that as per DoPT guidelines of Year 2007, caste validity is mandatory before any promotions and hence same is applied for TBP. We have informed him that about all the executives, for whom his office has kept on hold the TBP, have received regular promotions and stand of his office to keep on hold the TBP cases has no relevance at this stage and requested him to clear all TBP cases kept on hold. We also narrated that caste validity is mandatory at the date of joining in DoT/BSNL and many of the executives have submitted the validity, but nothing has been done on part of officers in staff section to confirm availability of validity in office and each and every officer from reserved category seems to be denied the TBP. We also informed that officers in OBC category do not have any scope in promotions and no question of any privilege in TBP, but the said biased officers have overacted and the TBP cases of the officers in OBC category also are kept on hold.  As per constitution and being Government Servant, everybody with good HR approach needs to uplift the officers from the reserved category by supporting them by all means  and here deliberate attempts are made to deny the right of the only officers in reserved category and this act is against the law of land. After elaborate discussions, GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that he has decided to write one more reminder letter to BSNL CO and then will wait for one week and if no response/reply is received within week then without waiting for clarification from BSNL CO, all the pending TBP orders will be issued within fortnight.  

18.   Action on complaints by SNEA MH/Nagpur against Mrs. Namrata Tiwari GMT Nagpur: We reminded GM HR Admn Mumbai on pending grievances/complaints of Joint Forum/SNEA Nagpur and even after repeated complaints no action has been taken in this matter. When we have inquired with GM Pers and Director HR BSNL Board about the action on long stay of Mrs Namrata Tiwari GMT Nagpur at Nagpur, it has been informed that till today no single letter has been received by their office from CGMT MH Circle. It has been also assured that action will be immediately taken if such written complaints are forwarded by Maharashtra Circle. On this GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the committee constituted by his office of the officers at Nagpur to investigate the complaints against Mrs Tiwari has submitted its report and as per report of the committee as on today all the grievances raised by Joint Forum Nagpur are settled and nothing is pending. Then we reminded that compliant was in two parts, one part was harassment of executives and non-executives by Mrs Tiwari and another part was her long stay of 24 years at Nagpur. We also pointed out that she is given undue favour by giving dual charge as GM Admn in Nagpur TD and PGM Mobile at Nagpur as separate charge and her intervention in HR issues continues as each and every file is routed through her. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that the committee has recommended that decision on long stay and transfer of Mrs Tiwari is to be taken by Circle office or BSNL Corporate office. We have brought to his notice that as per information by leaders of Join Forum at Nagpur through DS SNEA Nagpur, none of grievances are settled but its intensity has been reduced with posting of PGMT Nagpur, but the hardship of executives and non-executives continues as Mrs Tiwari hold the charge of GM Admn Nagpur as well as PGMT Nagpur and specially brought to his notice, how Mrs Tiwari works as GMT Nagpur and also as PGMT Mobile at same time when no such order has been issued by BSNL Corporate office. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to look into the pending grievances if any and the complaint about long stay of Mrs. Namrata Tiwari GMT Nagpur /PGMT Mobile Nagpur will also be looked into. We demanded for copy of the report of the Committee to ascertain the realities by Joint Forum/SNEA Nagpur and to know how committee has come to wrong conclusion that all the grievances are settled when DS SNEA Nagpur still says that grievances are pending. GM HR Admn Mumbai assured to discuss it with CGMT MH and decide further course of action. 

19.   Filing unwanted caveats in each and every case of transfer and terror being created in the minds of executives: We have once again informed GM HR Admn Mumbai that action on part of management to file caveat in each and every case of transfer is unwanted for and it is unnecessary creating fear in minds of the officers under transfer. We also narrated that much more expenditure is being incurred by BSNL in filing such caveat in different courts and this is not affordable when BSNL is facing extreme financial crunch. GM HR Admn Mumbai informed that there is no much expenditure made on caveat as expenditure involved in each transfer order is just Rs 6000.00 per order per Court and not per officer under transfer. But we impleaded that Rs. 6000 per order per court means it comes Rs 36000.00 per order including High Court /CAT at Mumbai/Nagpur and Aurangabad and the expenditure is in multiples of the transfer orders issued which will definitely come in lakhs of rupees. Further expenditure made on sending such notices to each and every officer from different courts also coast some definite administrative expenses. But GM HR Admn advocated that such caveat is required to implement any order as if one individual goes to the court then entire order is stayed and entire process of transfer and posting is kept on hold. The very purpose of filing caveat is just that transfer order is not stayed and after filing also individual can approach the court, but in such cases one sided stay is not granted on entire transfer orders and the case may be admitted on merits of the case pleaded by individual. In conclusion GM HR Admn Mumbai was of the opinion that the expenditure is very small and it is justified in view of the urgency of implementation of transfer orders caveat is justified and f required association may take up matter with CGMT MH.
