23 Feb 19:  Status of tenure Transfers in Maharashtra Circle: SNEA MH has received many requests for issuing transfer orders of executives working at Circle tenure stations as orders are not issued for last five months.

·        Tenure transfers have been routine matter for BSNL Corporate office to issue tenure transfer before completion of tenure, which was followed till last quarter in Maharashtra Circle.

·        However, since last Sept 2018, the matter of Transfers from Circle tenure Stations and All India soft Tenure stations are delayed by five months and in last month, two-time willingness has been called for Circle Tenure stations for posting substitutes.

·        On this pending issue, creating unrest among executives at tenure stations, SNEA MH had discussions with GM HR Admn Mumbai in last week wherein GM HR Admn Mumbai has firmly assured that Tenure transfers of executives completing tenure up to Oct 2019 will be issued in First week of March 2019.

·        GM HR Admn Mumbai has also assured to consider the medical ground requests from Tenure stations along with the tenure orders in First week of March 2019.

·        Regarding non-tenure transfers, GM HR Admn Mumbai has informed that though willingness has been called for filling of shortages of executives in Non-tenure SSAs, there will be minimum transfers in view of financial conditions of BSNL.

·        He added that transfers without any expenditure i.e. without need of substitute posting, mutual transfers on one to one basis and own cost transfers as per options given by individual will only be given consideration.

·        The matter of transfer to and from Non-tenure stations to meet shortages thereof will be decided on cases by case basis with priority to own cost of transfers and such transfers also will be minimum.

·        GM HR Admn Mumbai added that even though there are some excess executives in some of the SSAs, no any transfers on name of excess would be issued in the interest of service. Transfers from such SSAs having excess Executives will not be issued in the interest of service till there is no extreme shortage in any other geographically nearby SSA.

·        In case of acute shortage of executives in any particular SSA, then the executive in same cadre from nearby SSA having excess executives will be posted in the interest of services and such transfers will be minimum to overcome shortage to certain extent and not meeting entire shortage of that SSA.

·        As such, there are chances of minimum transfers of executives in the interest of service from Non-tenure stations during this year and only transfers without any cost to BSNL will be given consideration.

·        All executives may plan accordingly and decide their course of action to avoid any inconvenience at later stage.

22 Feb 19:   Director CFA BSNL writes DO letter to CGMT MH on poor achievements in gross landline connections  and requested for personal attention to achieve target for during remaining period of this financial year. Letter <<<>>>   Annex I <<<>>>  Annex II <<<>>> 

·        The letter points out that in Maharashtra Circle has achieved only 49.55% (47818 Connections) of assigned target up to Jan 2019 and during same period about 199329 connections are disconnected.

·        It is required that special efforts are taken by one and all in Maharashtra Circle for achievement of targets.

·        Here priority needs to be given for closure of exchanges running in los and more focus needs to be given for Exchanges with high landline demand with priority for revenue generation.

 

22 Feb 19:   AGM Estt Mumbai issued orders for one week deputation of six officers of BSNL Maharashtra Circle for residential programme on “Talent Management and Carrier progression’ to be conducted in IIT BHU Varanashi. Letter <<<>>>

·        Already about 100 officers have been trained under this programme and nothing has been seen as outcome of this training to these officers already undergone training at IIT BHU Varanasi.

·        Until now, this programme has been enjoyed as one week training cum tour of Varanasi and it seems that same trend will continue as the programme, which was kept on hold for last few months, has again opened and now xix officers are deputed in two batches. 

·        Here BSNL is facing financial crunch and it not in position to pay monthly electricity bills, unable to pay the rentals of exchanges/BTS and many of the exchanges and BTS are down even on today.

·        However, in total careless approach all other activities including such useless training are being continued by keeping aside main business of telecom services.

·        Such useless actions and careless approach is one of the reasons for downfall of BSNL and till no lesson has been taken by BSNL, management and officers are being deputed for such unwanted training.

·        Approximately Rs 50,000 will be expenditure for each candidate and thus Rs Three lakhs will be spent on such training, which are practically of zero use in day to day working in BSNL.

·        In this amount, some BTS/Exchanges can be restored by paying outstanding electricity bills/rental but everybody seems to be busy on what’s app, twitter, Facebook and such unwanted trainings for BSNL.

·        Unfortunately, it is picture as on today that no one cares for restoration of failed Exchanges/BTS but many are worried for such unwanted actions and programmes and are directly contributing more losses to BSNL.

·        Hope in days to come, there will be certain change in attitude of BSNL management and immediate action is taken for giving priority for working of BTS/Exchanges rather than such trainings which are not at all useful in day to day functioning of cash trapped BSNL.

·        It is good that BSNL is training its officers for 5G services, but where it is justified and required when BSNL is yet to get 4G spectrum and in not in position to run the 2G, 3G BTS due to non-availability of funds of payment of electricity bills.

·        But such questions are senseless and projection of high Technology is always propagated regardless of its utilisation and affordability by BSNL.

 

 20 Feb 19:  Mass Participation on Third Day of Strike throughout Maharashtra Circle:  On third and last day of the strike, hundreds of comrades have participated in the strike and extended full support to the call given by AUAB CHQ.

·        At many places the gate meetings were arranged with very high response of the comrades in each and every SSA/Unit.

·        AUAB leaders at respective level addressed the gathering elaborating the situation and bringing awareness among the BSNL workforce about the deliberate attempts to destabilise BSNL and Telecom sector to create monopoly.

·        AUAB leaders at different SSAs have approached different leaders and have apprised them about the demands raised by AUAB CHQ and need of its settlement of survival of BSNL and maintain fare completion in Telecom sector.

·        The delegation of AUAB Kalyan met Shri. Eknath Shinde, Hon MP Thane who is prominent leader of Shivsena and submitted him representation about the demands of AUAB and requested for active support in settlement of these demands.

·        The delegation of AUAB Mumbai met Shri. Gopal Shetty, Hon MP Boriwali Mumbai who very active BJP leader and submitted him representation about the demands of AUAB and requested for active support in settlement of these demands.

Ajit Abhayankar, General Secretary CITU Maharashtra, Com. Nageshkumar Nalwade, Convenor AUAB MH, Com. Ranjan Dani, Chairman AUAB MH,  Com. M. S. Adasul CS SNEA MH, Com A. G. Joshi, CS AIBSNLEA MH updating gathering about the genuineness of demands, status of different issues, need of strongest unity and conveying thanks to Maharashtra Comrade in General and Pune comrades in particular for making this agitation call highly successful by such mass participation showing strength of the unity of executives and non executives in Maharashtra Circle. Meeting was nicely anchored by Com D B Baravkar CEC Member SNEA Pune and Com Harisangm ADS AIBSNLEA conveyed vote of thanks.  The meeting started at 1430 hrs concluded at 1730 hrs with slogans of unity.

·        Even after successful strike of three days, there was no action on part of BSNL, DoT and even no formal call for discussions of issues was given to AUAB leaders at Delhi. It seems that DoT & BSNL have understood the limitations of three days call and hence have deliberately not taken any initiatives.

·        Such negligent approach on part of DoT & BSNL management has created mass unrest among executives and many have demanded either for indefinite strike or for not giving any such call for strike of three days without any desired output and just indirect donation of salaries under No Work No Pay Principle.

·        In the Evening AUAB CHQ had meeting of leaders at Delhi and have decided further course of action on completion of three days strike and in view of no response from Management.

·        AUAB MH in general and SNEA MH in particular convey sincere thanks and gratitude to all beloved comrades of Maharashtra Circle for their very active and mass response and making this call for three days strike a grand success.

Some of units/SSAs/Individual who have not participated in strike yesterday have joined Strike call on second day.

·        As it was “Shiv Jayanti”, many Districts started second day strike with garlanding photos of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and continued strike with more intensity.

·        AUAB MH in general and SNEA MH in particular convey sincere thanks and gratitude to all beloved comrades of Maharashtra Circle for their very active and mass response on second day also. 

·        It is unfortunate that though the strike has been intensified with participation of more and more comrades throughout India, DoT has not taken its note and no initiatives were taken either from DoT or BSNL for starting dialogues with AUAB CHQ leaders for resolution of demands raised by AUAB.

·        We appeal all the comrades to further intensify struggle to draw attention of BSNL, DoT and Govt for settlement of the demands raised for survival of BSNL.

·        It was total strike except few units where some portions of officers and employees have not participated in strike; the response from Govt, DoT, and BSNL management was not seen on first day.

·        But, it seems that deliberate attempts are made to neglect the strength and unity of BSNL workforce by Govt/DoT as even there was no call for discussions with AUAB CHQ on first day of strike and hence there is need of intensifying the strike today and tomorrow.  

·        We appeal all the comrades to maintain same tempo, zeal and enthusiasm and make the second and third day of the call a grand success.

15 Feb 19:   CAO FC Mumbai issued order for transfer of one JAO from Pune to Circle Office Mumbai in the interest of service. Letter <<<>>>

·        It is understood that due to go green initiatives this officer has been become spare at Pune and hence transferred to Mumbai with left out work of calling subscribers.

·        The officer was earlier under transfer from Pune to Nanded SSA and now with change of SSA, he is posted to Circle Office Mumbai.

·        Already in Circle Office Mumbai is having the account personnel working more than the double of the actual requirement and comparative staff strength of all other SSAs.

·        There is no need of any more  Account Personal expertise in Circle Office Mumbai as about 150 Account Personal who are highly efficient and expert in their office work are working in Circle Office Mumbai. 

·        This has been repeatedly pointed out even by CGMT MH Circle, but till more and more Account Personals are being posted to Circle Office Mumbai.

·        Further BSNL has no money to pay Electricity bills and many of the BTS/Exchanges are down due to serious financial crises and here transfers are being issued in the interest of service, is definitely good sign for BSNL’s survival.

·        As per our last discussions with DGM FC Mumbai and GM Fin Mumbai there was proposal to shift excess Account Personal from Circle Office Mumbai to SSAs having shortage of Account wing executives, but here in total opposite decision one more JAO is posted to Circle Office Mumbai and some other may be shifted from Mumbai to outside on name of excess strength.

   

14 fEB 19: News about uncertainty about future of BSNL and fear in minds of BSNL workforce and its customers:  Since last few days and specifically after the news of proposal by DoT for closure of BSNL in print and social media yesterday, every employee and officer of BSNL is under shock and this news also has shaken the faith of customer on BSNL.

·        Since last few days, everybody in BSNL is under fear and uncertain about the future of BSNL and is under total confusion about his/her future in such worst financial conditions of BSNL.

·        No one can deny that the situation in Telecom sector is worst and the main reason for this situation is free offers and unfair competition created by R-Jio since last one year.

·        Since opening of Telecom sector for private operators in 1995, there was steep competition, but since last year, it has reached to unethical and unfair practices and has ruined Telecom sector.

·        When telecom sector was opened for private operators after globalization, it was being quoted that DoT has monopoly in Telecom sector and there is no competition in Telecom market of India.

·        Thus to have fair competition in Telecom sector and to overcome monopoly Telecom sector has been opened for private operator and it was justified to certain level with entry of the Mobile in Indian Telecom market.

·        But after 15-20 years, the steps are seen exactly opposite of directions to open Telecom sector to private operators and it seems that all out efforts are being made by every nook and corner to create monopoly of only R-Jio in Telecom sector.

·        In an unfortunate attempt, all other operators are being compelled either to sale the Telecom business or to close the business and get out of Telecom market and best example of it is Reliance communication.    

·        R Jio has started its services in December 2016 with totally free offer and many of the customers have opted for R-Jio it as alternate mobile and retained earlier mobile connections they used.

·        As per guidelines , no Telecom Operator/Company can provide such free offer beyond 90 days, but for R-Jio has once again made such unethical attempts and continued free offer beyond ninety days and also adopted ideas like rental mobile for limited years thereby getting excuses from GST in Crore of rupees.

·        The violation of rules and getting excuses thereof is the work cum business culture by R-Jio and as happened earlier cases of such deliberate violations by R-Jio will be settled with certain amount of fine by TRAI, DoT or Telecom Commission on R-Jio, and which Reliance may pay or may not pay. 

·        Thereafter matter will be pulled in court of law and finally everybody will forget about what was done wrong by R-Jio as adopted by Reliance Communication in earlier stage and here also we should not expect different outcome.    

·        The unfair and unethical competition started in Telecom sector with entry of private operator’s years before has now reached its peak with lowest level actions with entry of R-Jio with free offer, which has already damaged telecom sector.

·        The giant companies, which were leaders in Telecom sector for years together, have come under trouble over the year and under threat of closure or bankruptcy.

·        The free offer by R-Jio is has affected every company including R-Jio, but this company is using support from its other companies and R-Jio is moving ahead with aim to kill the competition in Telecom Sector and to shut down all other companies in Telecom sector and present crises are part of this game plan.

·        Reliance Communication which was in certain competition till few days back has been declared bankrupt and as on today it is trapped in litigations in from its vendors and it is seen that in court of law the reason given for bankruptcy by Reliance Communications in the failure of its deal with R-Jio. The entire workforce and employees of Reliance Communications are or will be on streets for no mistake on their part.

·        Though both the companies are owned by Ambani brothers, but one company which is totally new in Telecom Market shows profit of thousands of crores and another company which is in Telecom sector for years together is declared bankrupt and it is difficult to digest but this is reality due to unfair and unethical competition in telecom sector by R-Jio.     

·        Idea –Vodafone both were giant companies in Telecom sector and due to unfair competition by R-Jio, they have opted for merger and lakhs of employees have been already removed from services and till similar actions are going on. The merged company has shut down many of the BTS and closed about all non-profitable BTS and many of their customers have opted out to BSNL.

·        With some efforts on part of major workforce and management of BSNL, till last month BSNL could sustain the pressure of competition by adopting unethical way by R-Jio in Telecom sector by giving tough fight by adopting ethical ways.

·        Now also, majority of workforce of BSNL except few is making efforts in these directions, but most unfortunately, since few days rather months, the things are not moving in proper directions.

·        It is fact that similar situation was created among the DoT work force while creation of the BSNL from DoT in 1998 to 2000 and which such tactics except ITS officers, everybody was lured, compelled to opt either for BSNL or for MTNL. During that period also it was predicted by many of the so called intellectuals that BSNL will survive only for few years, but since 19 years BSNL has seen many up and downs and the present situation is at lowest down position.

·        But this year situation has been worsened and many of the exchanges and BTS are down for non-payment of Electricity bills and this was indirect action in support of R-Jio. One side we are shutting down services for days together for disconnection of Electricity and other side R-Jio is making grand advertisement in the newspapers, it cannot be mere co-incidence, and major conspiracy seems to be going on.

·        It is unfortunate that it is being informed that funds under Opex (Operation) head are not available for payment of Electricity bills, but it is available for Capex (Capital) works like painting building, outsourcing OFC Mtce works by increasing expenditure by two to five times of the present expenditure, unwanted expenditure on office decoration and petty works, tours, meetings has not been stopped.

·        BSNL is paying huge AMC charges without any desired output, companies like M/S Hungama are bleeding, and looting BSNL by its worst actions, and even after thousands of complaints, no single rupee has been recovered from such fraudulent company.

·        There many such parasite companies /vendors looting BSNL by using different flaws in tender and this is also one of reason for downfall of BSNL.

·        When it was expected that all other works including salary should have been given last priority and Electricity bills are paid. It was also required to define which exchange is /BTS is closed down and which is to be run by reconnection or by regular payment of electricity bills, but it is not seen and routine approach has been seen.

·        First and foremost and immediate step needs to be taken is that to analyze the loss making and profit making BTS/Exchanges and all the loss making exchanges and BTS should be shut down unofficially or officially and no services should be started in any such loss making exchange /BTS and entire focus should be kept on profit making exchanges/BTS and entire workforce working in losing making units/offices should be fully used in profit making Exchanges/Units.

·        The expenditure on marketing should be stopped totally and its should be reduced to Zero % as marketing without existence of services has no meaning except completion of formalities or responding to certain obligations under marketing head.

·        Further, one cannot rule out the agenda behind such news about closure of BSNL on Headlines of leading newspapers when BSNL Unions and Associations are fighting for their legitimate demand for grant of 3rd PRC and allotment of 4G spectrum and since last few years the issues are not settled by DoT by giving different reasons.

·        This may be tactics to compel the workforce of BSNL to accept whatever percentage of fitment given with conditions like reduction of age to 58, VRS for staff & officers above age 50 years etc without any hesitation and in fear of closure of BSNL.

·        We think this formula adopted to create fear in minds of staff and offices of BSNL has been effective as many of comrades who earlier opposed VRS or reduction of retirement age are now openly advocating for its implementation and accept whatever is given by DoT.

·        This happens against the sincere commitment of CMD BSNL over the period of last two years for giving 3rd PRC to all the staff and officers of BSNL with 15% fitment and in present situation these comrades have forgotten even commitment of CMD BSNL and started discussions even on Zero merger of DA or 5% fitment formula for 3rd PRC with reduction age to 58 and VRS for all employees above age 50 years.

·        It seems that certain deliberate attempts are made to create panic situation among BSNL officers and Staff by spreading news about closure of BSNL with headlines so that instead of talking about wrong polices adopted in telecom sector and unfair competition thereof, everybody keeps focus on survival of BSNL and his/her own future in BSNL.

·        Otherwise, the proposal for closure of BSNL is not new as it is proposed by “NITI Ayog” before two years as incipient sick PSU and now same has become catching line in newspapers and social media and it is direct attempt to destabilize BSNL and divert its customer base to other operators.

·        Unfortunately, no one from BSNL has condemned this unethical act and entire situation has been created as if BSNL has been already closed and no one is to take care.

·        Media has quoted presentation given by CMD BSNL to Secretary DoT and proposal for revival of BSNL and also for grant of PRC for workforce of BSNL and same has been directly linked with closure of BSNL.

·        There are three options for cash trapped BSNL i.e. Revival plan, Disinvestment and Closure of BSNL and all three options are equally ascertained. Rather it is reliably learnt that DOT has rejected proposal for Disinvestment and Closure of BSNL and proposal for revival of BSNL is recommended by DoT. Most probably, this plan for of BSNL will be put for approval of Digital commission and hopefully it will be approved with certain conditions.

·        Same has been narrated by Secretary DoT in her address in the Head of Circle Conference of BSNL held in Bharat Sanchar Bhavan New Delhi in last week. She has categorically mentioned that Govt will ensure everything that BSNL is given every necessary support and it is committed for good health of BSNL. She also has cautioned that being Govt procedure it may take time due to procedure being followed in Govt Practices, but every support will be extended to BSNL for its good health.

·        Many have seen that similar situation was for Air India and attempts were made to sale Air India but due to financial conditions, there were no takers for Air India and finally said proposal has been put in dustbin and now Shri. Ashwini Lohani who is known for his result oriented actions is again appointed as CMD of Air India for one year even though he is retired from services.

·        As such, one cannot rule out about the similar actions on part of Govt of India and DoT for BSNL as BSNL is playing major role in growth of India and its contribution in rural and remote area and mainly on disastrous situation cannot be rules out and one has to be always optimistic.

·        The situation is worst and news of closure of BSNL in media has put oil in this worst situation and customer base also has started for opting services of other operators.       

·        Since last two days, many have expressed their feelings on Whats app groups about this panic situation and given many suggestions for revival of BSNL as well as settlement of major demand of third PRC.

·        At this stage, maturity is required by everybody to keep faith on his or her CHQ leadership which is dealing with BSNL management, DoT and Hon MoSc about different pending issues for which call for three days strike has been given by AUAB CHQ.

·        As per ongoing discussions and circumstances, there are chances of settlement of issues through discussions of AUAB leaders at CHQ for which final meeting is scheduled at 1500 hrs todays and final views of AUAB CHQ will be submitted to BSNL management and DoT.

·        One must understand that it is difficult to close any small private company and we have seen that Reliance Communication has tried to close business by declaring bankruptcy, but closure is not possible for Reliance also and just imagine how it will be difficult to close the BSNL, which has presence all over India covering each and every corner.

·        At the same time we have to keep in mind and will have work with at most sincerity and efficiency with vigil to oppose all wrong doing and wastage of money and every staff and officer will have to think before signing any paper, where his/her action /signature is in the interest of BSNL or is against interest of BSNL. Otherwise BSNL will not be in position to sustain further pressure and we will along with BSNL will be ruined in days to come and at later stage we cannot do anything else other than blaming each other for such utter failure and that time such blame game will also no meaning.

·        We will have to bring awareness among the public about need of existence of BSNL for stopping loot by R-Jio which is naturally expected as single telecom Operator in telecom market with monopoly in hands of business oriented company and by apprising them how the free offers by R-Jio will be converted to costly offers after exit of other operators and mainly exit of BSNL.      

·        SNEA MH condemns the unethical and deliberate wrong message being spread in media by neglected proposal for revival of BSNL and appeals all the comrades not to be panic but to be vigilant and be ready to give its best to BSNL/Association by all possible means. At the time, we will have to work hard for building of confidence of the customers on BSNL by overcoming these rumors about closure of BSNL.

11  fEB 19: :  AGM Staff Mumbai calls for revised options for posting of executives from different Cadres to fill up vacancies at different Tenure stations as well as Non tenure Stations. Letter <<<>>> 

·        Earlier on 07/01/2019, options were called for posting to tenure stations and now options are called for filling up vacant post of DEs/SDEs & JTOs in different Tenure as well non-tenure SSAs.

·        The details of earlier letters issued by AGM Staff Mumbai on same subject are reposted here for ready reference of all comrades. Letter <<<>>>    Corrigendum  <<<>>>     Annex I DGM <<<>>>     Annex AGM II <<<>>>        Annex SDE III <<<>>>       Annex IV  JTO <<<>>>    

·        In earlier letters, the vacancy position was shown combined i.e. DE plus DGM and JTO plus SDE, but in this letter, it is shown as separate vacancy position for JTOs & SDEs.

·        The options are to be sent by email on adstaffmh@gmail.com latest by 23/02/2019.

·        Though options were called for Tenure stations till sufficient options are not received and till there are vacant post in these Tenure SSAs.

·        As such options are called viz in DE Cadre,  Gadchiroli SSA (0) , Dhule (3) , Goa (14) , Raigad (1), Ratnagiri (7) , Sindhudurg (0), in SDE cadre for Gadchiroli SSA (10) , Dhule (4) , Goa (5) , Raigad (3), Ratnagiri (1) , Sindhudurg (6)  and in JTO Cadre Gadchiroli SSA (0) , Dhule (1) , Goa (0) , Raigad (3), Ratnagiri (7) , Sindhudurg (6).

·        Thus now apart from options already received by Staff section Mumbai, total 25 DEs, 29 SDE & 17 JTOs are vacant at Non-tenure stations in different SSAs as mentioned in letter.

·        Apart from this, there is requirement of 30 DEs, 19 SDEs and 19 JTOs at non-Tenure stations to fill up vacant posts and options are called for filling up these vacant posts also

·        Though there are vacancies in any particular SSA in particular cadre, and till anyone comes under the zone of Circle long stay for posting at tenure station, then he will be posted to tenure station, regardless of existing vacancies in present working SSA and hence one has to submit options accordingly.

·        The options given for tenure stations will be considered in the interest of service i. e. at Company Cost and options given for Non Tenure stations will be at Own Cost.

·        In case of Own cost transfers,  TA/DA, Transfer grant or joining time is not grated.  

·        The post of executives vacant in Tenure SSAs after considering options received and which will be received up to 23/02/2019 will be filled up from the Circle level Long stay list.

·        The executives working at tenure stations and completed tenure after Sept 2019 are eagerly waiting for their transfers and management is using this idea of calling options repeatedly.

·        It was quite possible that from the options received and by considering some names in the Circle longest stay, the Tenure transfers of executives working at Tenure stations can be considered without any further delay.

·        At least it is was possible that transfer orders of executives completed tenure from Sept 2018 to March 2019 could be issued with this approach, but same is not being done and in time killing attempt options are called for second time by giving two week’s time and adding vacancies of non-tenure stations also.

·        This action by staff section to call for fresh options by giving time up to 23/02/2019, makes it clear that now Tenure transfers will be issued in March 2019 only and not before that.

·        SNEA MH will take up matter for early consideration of tenure transfer orders of executives at least who have completed tenure after Sept 2018 to March 2019.

6 Feb 19:   Facts about Murder of Internal Democracy by unconstitutional and illegal directives by Provisional GS SNEA: Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH replies to Com. K Sebastin Provisional General Secretary SNEA CHQ on his illegal, unconstitutional and unethical directives issued for withdrawal of post of CP & CP SNEA MH as proposed in his letter dated 23/01/2018. Letter <<<>>>    

·        In detailed reply it has been point wise clarified how this decision is unethical, illegal, and unconstitutional and against interest of SNEA.

·        Letter elaborates how Com Sebastin himself has violated different clauses of constitution and has made mesh in functioning of SNEA and how he is fabricating baseless charges of not following SNEA constitution by CS/CP SNEA MH on name of holding double post after period of 16 months.

·        The matter of double post by COBs is under purview of CEC of that Circle and CEC of SNEA MH held at Jalgaon in Oct 2018 has already taken decision and matter has been closed, and constitutionally Com Sebastin has no right to act against decision of CEC.

·        The matter of double post by CHQ OBs is under purview of CWC Meeting and in CWC Meeting held in Ludhiana in Nov 2018. In this meeting, Com Sebastin himself has declared that the resignation of DyGS by Com. M. S. Adasul has been approved and he continues to be CS SNEA MH and now constitutionally Com Sebastin has no right to act against decision of CWC.

·        Now Com Sebastin has alleged that the resignation from post of DyGS was backdated then it should not have been declared accepted in CWC Meeting and AIC Ludhiana.   

·        If he was really concerned about holding of double post, he should have acted on completion of three months in Dec 2018 and not now after period of 16 months that to be when matter has been settled by respective and responsible house of SNEA.

·        Com. K. Sebastin, Provisional GS SNEA CHQ has no locus standi to issue letter for forfeiting post of CS and CP SNEA MH under any clause.

·        It has been elaborately expressed in the letter how this decision of Com. K. Sebastin, provisionally approved GS SNEA is biased and vindictive and is taken just in support of BSNL MH Circle management which is unable to defend its stand on illegal action of forfeiting post of CS SNEA MH and DS SNEA Mumbai challenged in High Court Bombay.

·        As per amendment in constitution approved in AIC Ludhiana in Nov 2018, no one including GS SNEA has right to forfeit the post of any office bearer in SNEA even on holding double post

·        As per amendment approved in AIC Ludhiana in Nov 2018, in case of holding double post and non submission of resignation from any of the post, the former post will be automatically exist to be ceased and he will continue on newly elected or latest post.

·        Com. K. Sebastin has referred non-existing clauses of SNEA constitution for forfeiting post of CS & CP SNEA MH and made poor attempt to justify his wrongdoing and biased actions to establish Dictatorship in SNEA.

·        Com. Sebastin has issued letter even without consulting any member of Circle Body of SNEA MH or even he has not consulted single District Secretary of SNEA MH.

·        It has been  made crystal clear in this letter that it is nothing but revengeful action by Com. K. Sebastin against SNEA MH which has not supported him in elections for post of GS SNEA and made complaints about his unethical and fraudulent actions in elections for becoming GS SNEA third time.

·        The post of CS SNEA MH has been illegally already forfeited by CGMT MH by quoting non-existing clauses of the BSNL Executive Association Recognition rule 2014 and Com Sebastin is aware about it.

·        BSNL Executive Association Recognition rule 2014, does not have clause to forefiet post of any office bearers of any association and only provision exists for de-recognition of association in case of non-following constitution and same action has been already taken by BSNL Corporate office in Sept 2018 and CGMT MH has nothing to on it in Oct 2018.

·        Earlier Com Sebastin has raised issue with CMD, Director HR against vindictive actions by CGMT MH against SNEA MH and now he behaves as CMD of BSNL and takes similar action without understanding its impact on working of SNEA and just to settle his personal ego hurted in his failure in GS election and threaten SNEA MH comrades.

·        Com Bharat Sonawane CP SNEA MH has submitted his resignation from both the post i.e. CP SNEA MH as well as DS SNEA Pune within three months. He has just completed formalities of conduction of elections of the SNEA Pune in the same manner as that of Com Sebastin as defunct GS SNEA by holding election in AIC Ludhiana as he has not followed constitution of SNEA and even he was officially declared defunct GS.

·        But, Com Sebastin treats his action as legal as it is approved by house but similar action on part of Com Bharat Sonawane is being used by culprit Com Sebastin as supporting document for establishing holding double post allegation against Com Bharat Sonawane.

·        Similarly, Com Sebastin makes baseless allegations against Com. M. S. Adasul CS SNEA MH for submission of backdated resignation from the post of DyGS when Com Adasul has submitted resignation well within time of three months i.e. on 17/12/2017 and he was elected as CS SNEA MH on 20/09/2017.

·        When Com Adasul was elected as CS SNEA MH the two years period of CHQ Body was over and CWC Meeting extended it nor by BSNL Corporate office and Com Adasul was holding only single post.

·        But Com Sebastin gave wrong information to CWC Bhubaneswar and on name of approval of CPSUCH, he has got illegally post facto approval of extension of CHQ Body on 16/12/2017 with backdated effect 07/09/2017.  

·        In fabricated charges after period of 16 months of election as CS SNEA MH,  now in revengeful attitude after tough fight in GS election held in AIC Ludhiana , Com Sebastin manipulates things as per his requirement and on name of CHQ OB meeting issues illegal directives  for which there is no provision in constitution. 

·        The letter is having all relevant documents attached as annexure establishing the fact that the letter issued by Com Sebastin is illegal, unconstitutional, and untimely, biased and is nothing but joining hands with management settlement of election enmities in AIC Ludhiana.

·        Letter clears that by issuing such letter, now Com Sebastin has made it crystal clear that he has joined hands with MH Circle management for harassing comrades of SNEA MH and has unethically joined hands with officers in Circle management through his mediators and unfortunately, these mediators are members of SNEA.

·        Since CEC SNEA MH at Jalgaon has resolved that Com M S Adasul will be candidate for GS post, Com Sebastin, has started dirty politics and using groupism tactics has told his blind followers to write compliant about holding double post.

·        This was just to create unethical pressure on Com. M. S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH so that he should not be candidate for GS election, as he will be engaged in vindictive actions by CGMT MH.

·        But Com. M. S. Adasul has given tough fight in GS elections and secured 321 votes and Com Sebastin has got 320 votes, but Com Sebastin has declared himself as elected candidate by using muscle power.

·        Com. M. S. Adasul CS SNEA MH has written such detail complaint about the malpractices in AIC Election and challenged the illegal election of Com Sebastin as GS SNEA. Hundreds of similar complaints about malpractices by Com Sebastin in AIC elections have been received by BSNL.

·        Finally matter with all the relevant facts is referred to prescribed authority by BSNL Corporate office i.e. Registrar of Societies, Rajouri Garden New Delhi and till then Com Sebastin is given recognition as provisional GS and he cannot take such decision for violation of constitution when he himself is under fire for series of violations of constitution of SNEA.

·        Now after thought process, Com Sebastin behaves in total irresponsible manner and by fabricated and mutilation of facts has taken one-sided action just to destabilise the unity of SNEA MH, which has challenged his wrong doings as well total failed leadership as GS SNEA.

·        It will be double action by GS SNEA after similar action by CGMT MH before three months and unfortunately, both are quoting non-existing clauses for justifying their stand on fabricated charges even though none of them has powers to forfeit post of any office bearer at any level in SNEA.

·        This proves the unholy alliance of Com Sebastin with Circle management as CGMT MH wants to suppress voice of SNEA MH against his wrong doings and Com Sebastin wants to take revenge of his defeat in GS election and suppress the voice of Com. M. S. Adasul against his wrong doings within SNEA.

·        By forgetting all ethics and guidelines on subject and going by the well-established egoistic principle of enemy of enemy are friends, BSNL MH management and Com Sebastin have become friends.

·        SNEA MH Circle has supported Com Sebastin for becoming General Secretary for two times in AIC Nanded as well as AIC Jaipur, and has opposed candidature  of Com Sebastin as GS in AIC Ludhiana due to his total failure in dealing with HR issues of executives in BSNL.

·        SNEA MH Circle has played important role for giving him status of GS of recognised association by giving lead of 1140 votes out of total lead of 1640 votes given by SNEA MH in Membership verification, and it is his failure that he did not deliver as successful General Secretary and there is much anguish against him.

·        But instead of focusing on resolution of issues of executives, Com Sebastin is diverting minds of SNEA members on such non issues just to hide is failure after failures at all fronts. 

·        Unfortunately,  Com Sebastin  has become forgotten all good deeds and support to him by SNEA MH and has become blind enough that  he is behind breaking strong unity of SNEA MH even by joining hands with management .

·        When Com Anil Dubey DS SNEA Mumbai and Com M S Adasul CS SNEA Mumbai are without salary for last month and fighting against wrongdoing of management, instead of supporting these SNEA comrades.

·        In utter useless & senseless attitude, Com. Sebastin who was earlier supporting MH Circle management behind curtains, has now started acting openly against the strong unity of SNEA MH by making such unholy and unethical alliance with management and has proved that he is such shameful General Secretary of recognised Association. 

·        By elaborating all the facts, the letter request Com Sebastin GS to with draw letter or to have corrective actions by referring this matter of double post to the third party i.e. either to special committee for investigation of allegations or to CEC SNEA MH, or to CWC SNEA CHQ, which is competent authority to decide such dispute. In support of each and every say the supporting documents are attached

·        It is understood that HOCC Meeting held at BSNL Corporate office has decided to allot Rs 100 Crore funds for Electricity bill payments, and till it is not confirmed amount allotted for Maharashtra Circle.

·        Though all these efforts have brought certain relief on the matter of disconnection of Electricity supply and shut down of hundreds of BTS and Exchanges of BSNL, but the issues can be resolved by root cause solution for making arrangements of payments of electricity bills in time and at the same time everybody has to keep focus on energy conservation and minimum use of electricity there by reduction of electricity bills.

·        Hopefully everybody will contribute in Energy conservation, saving the electricity and reducing Electricity bills in all Exchanges and offices by taking corrective action on wastage of Electricity wherever is possible. Let us hope, that this situation will change with sincere efforts and contribution of all.

·        SNEA MH appreciates the efforts taken by Shri. A. K. Bajpai, PGMT Nagpur, Shri. Nitin Mahajan, GMT Nashik, Shri. Hariom Solanki GMT Kalyan and Shri. Rajeev Soni CEE Mumbai by taking up matter at different level and getting some relief in disconnection of Electricity by MSEDCL.
