·        With this transfer order, one more post of GM level Officer in unpopular Field units will be vacant and attempts will be made to fill up this post with local arrangements.

·        Nanded BA is consisting of four Revenue Districts namely Nanded, Latur, Parbhani & Hingoli Districts and it is having large geographical area situated at one corner of Maharashtra Circle.

·        Shri. Rokade, was unwilling for joining Nanded BAs since his orders were issued and later submitted request for all India hard tenure stations so that he can get choice posting back to Mumbai and how his request is given consideration.

·        This is how unpopular  SSAs/BAs do not have GM level takers but there is rush and  competition among GM level Officers in taking posting as SSA/BA/Unit Head in Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur and adjoining SSAs/BAs and many places excess officers are posted.

·        Let us hope Nanded BA gets GM level Officer as substitute to Shri. Nitin Rokade, GMT Nanded on implementation of his request transfer to NE-II Circle.

28 JUN 19: CAO FC Mumbai issued guidelines to all SSA Heads for utilization of Finance Staff available after merger of SSA and withdrawal of ERP roles w.e.f. 01/07/2019.    Letter <<<>>> 

·        As per directions this spared staff s to be used for recovery of outstanding amount by visiting to subscriber premises, for proper full-fledged implementation of CIS-dialing and any other activities of TRA works.

·        Letter warns that this arrangement is being made to increase the collection efficiency and recovery of outstanding amount and threatens that in case improvement is not observed then non performer and excessive staff will be transferred to SSAs/BAs having shortage of finance wing executives. 

·        Unfortunately, till FC section is of the opinion that non performer can be punished by transfers and practically such transfers are punishment for BSNL as money is wasted on transfers and this is punishment to family members as they also have to shift along with such non performer in eyes of management, but what is guarantee that non performer at one SSA will be performer at another SSA. We have seen in past that such transfers do not give desired results and only someone feels that  have done good job by transferring so called performer.

·        Let us hope that FC section takes some concrete and result oriented actions for proper utilization of available manpower in finance wing including Circle office Mumbai where about 140 Finance wing officers are posted which may be about 2/3rd of total strength of Finance wing of Maharashtra Circle. Otherwise issung such letters will be mere completion of formalities as being done for last so many years.

Now she is given mutual transfer with Com. K. P. Wankhade SDE Amravati and both have got choice posting now.

26 JUN 19: AirTel Disconnects the Landline Connections in Circle office Mumbai: AirTel again disconnected all landlne connections provided in BSNL Circle office Mumbai for non-payments of Telephone Bills and outgoing services of all these connections has been barred and only incoming calls are allowed on these numbers.

·        BSNL Circle office Mumbai has opted for AirTel Connections by surrendering the MTNL landline connections and one of the many flimsy reasons given was disconnection by MTNL for Non Payments of bills and it was pictured that AirTel will not disconnect for non-payments.  But here AirTel also dsconnects the landlne for non-payments and there was always hau and cry about MTNL Disconnections, but in case of AirTel Disconnections for nonpayment everybody is silent rather attempts are made to hide the facts that AirTel has disconnected all Telephone Numbers for Non payments of Bills.

·        This is not first time that landlne connections are disconnected for nonpayment by AirTel, but since BSNL has shifted for AirTel landline connections in Nov 2018, every now and then AirTel has disconnected services for nonpayment of Bills and nobody is speaking on it.

·        Rather many of the officers and staff in Circle office Mumbai are not using AirTel Landlne Connections either for incoming or for outgoing calls as it is not user friendly, gets disconnected in case of power failure, outgoing congestions are seen while dialing etc. Mainly many Officers and Staff except few who promoted AirTel Services have certain anguish and certain uncomfort in using AirTel connections. Also many of the officers of BSNL in field units do not dial on AirTel Numbers and thus practically BSNL is paying lakhs of rupees for unused services of AirTel.

·        There is no effect on working as BSNL in Circle Office Mumbai even after disconnection of all landlne services by AirTel as and practically these AirTel landlne are unused and since long BSNL Mobile is being used as standby arrangements. Apart from BSNL Mobile, about all senior officers have one add tonal landlne connection provided by MTNL and their office work is also not disturbed.

·        As such AirTel landlne connections are practically unused and BSNL is paying lakhs of rupees to AirTel as and when funds are received. Thus money of cash trapped BSNL is being wasted for paying fixed monthly charges to AirTel without utilization of Landlne services to the depth as it was used when services were provided by MTNL.

·        But due to dispute between some senior officers of MTNL and BSNL, CGMT MH has taken stand to disconnect all services of MTNL taken by BSNL and surrender of landlne was first step. This was strongly opposed only by SNEA MH and matter is under investigation by Vigilance team on the basis of complaint made by SNEA MH but final outcome is not yet disclosed.

·        It is really shameful that one Telecom PSU out of total two Telecom PSUs existing in India, surrenders for telecom services provided by other Telecom PSU and opts for telecom services of Private Telecom Operator.

·        This happens when everybody is demanding that Government should make it compulsory to all Government Officers and organization for use of Telecom Services only from PSUs like MTNL and BSNL, here due to egoistic behavior of certain officers, both and only Telecom PSUs are working against interest of each other and directly or indirectly supporting private operators by unethical and illegal ways.

·        Let us hope that some action is taken by Circle Management to surrender such useless landline services provided by AirTel and BSNL again opts for Landlne services from MTNL, another Telecom PSU.

·        If till there is any ego of any officer is hurdle in use of MTNL landlne services, then BSNL may not opt even for MTNL services but it should not use useless Landlne services provided by AirTel and surrender it at the earliest and it will be better that BSNL manages its work with existing BSNL Mobile services and some landlne services provided by MTNL and presently working in Circle office Mumbai.

·        SNEA MH will take up this matter again and we will pursue for ether restoration of MTNL services or total surrender of landlne services provided by AirTel and manages the show with existing MTNL Landlines and BSNL Mobile services and save lakhs of rupees of BSNL being wasted as payments to AirTel against practically unused useless landlne services.

19 JUN 19: AGM Staff Mumbai issued orders for ERP relieving of JTOs/SDEs under transfers from different SSA as per the orders issued by Circle Office Mumbai but not relieved by concerned SSA Heads and/or controlling officers.  Order <<<>>> 

·        It is important that before few days, Circle management has written SSA/BA heads for relieving of these officers by giving detail list and threatened to relieve them through ERP, but nobody respected these orders and finally Circle Management has to act forcefully by ERP relieving and stopping salary of these officers if they did not join at new place.

·        In such cases, many of the officers are not given relieving orders and if they join at new place of posting, the said SSA asks for relieving order and many times, there is conflict in implementation of such cases.

·        Also, no arrangements are made for taking over and handing over charge and concerned officers are compelled to relinquish the charge and leave the post and many joins as it is their request transfers but it affects the working of concerned unit.

·        Nowadays ERP relieving has become routine procedure in Maharashtra Circle as many of the SSA Heads and controlling officers do not respect to orders issued by Circle Management and under such poor conditions, Circle management use force tool of ERP relieving wherein salary of concerned executive is stopped and SSA/BA Heads/controlling officers are compelled to leave the control over such officers.

·        ERP relieving is one of the ways to measures how the transfer orders issued by Circle management are respected by SSA/BA Heads and unfortunately, the position of Circle management is becoming worst day by day, as many of the SSA heads do not bother for orders of Circle management.


19 JUN 19: AGM Staff Mumbai issued transfer orders of JTOs working at Circle Tenure stations as per the request of concerned officer.  Order <<<>>> 


18 JUN 19: GM S&M CFA Mumbai issued Urgent , Time Bound and to be implemented within day and totally binding orders to SSA/BA Heads for releasing payment of TIPs in installments with undertaking from TIPs.  Letter <<<>>>

·        Such procedures and time Bound methods are required in today’s scenario, when many of the SSA Heads to not bother about letters and orders issued by different officers in Circle Office and matter is not implemented in true spirit.

·        Such steps are required from same Circle Management for payment of Electricity Bills, which has again started creating problems after Loksabha General Elections.

·        It is unfortunate that again many of the Exchanges and BTS are down for days together due to Non Payment of Electricity Charges no single word is said by any responsible officers for such critical situation and everybody seems to be making efforts to hide the real and critical problem and keeping mum, which is directly affecting growth of BSNL.

·        Similar action is also required for long pending payments of Vendors, Contract Labors, landlords of rented building etc.

·        Let us hope that responsible officers in Circle Office, take similar Urgent, Time Bound and to be implemented  with specific time will be issued at least for payments of Electricity bills by allotment of required funds for same and required arrangements are made for payments contract labors, vendors, landlords etc for better maintenance of Telecom services being provided by BSNL.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


15 JUN 19: The Public Enterprises Selection Board, DoPT, Govt Of India in its meeting held on 14/06/2019, has recommended the name of Shri. Arvind Vadnerkar, PGMT Pune for the post of Director HR BSNL Board. Letter <<<>>> 

·        Shri. Arvind Vadnerkar is selected for prestigious post of Director HR BSNL Board, amongst total six internal  candidates appeared for the interview.

·        He is known for his soft-spoken skills, Extreme Honesty, sincerity and studied decisions in office working.

·        He is one among the few ITS officers who dared to get absorbed in BSNL at initial stage itself when many have opted to continue services in DoT thereby showing full faith and confidence on working and existence of BSNL in telecom Sector.

·        He has long experience of working in Maharashtra Circle on different posts ranging from DGM to PGM in different SSAs like Pune SSA, Pune Mobile, Aurangabad etc and is well aware about the field problems of executives and also about pending HR issues of the executives in BSNL.

·        He is having more than four years in hand and will get ample time as Director HR to give final shape to pending HR issues of the executives in BSNL. 

·        SNEA Maharashtra congratulates Shri. Arvind Vadnerkar, PGMT Pune on his selection as Director HR BSNL Board and wish him grand success in this new assignment as Director HR BSNL Board.

15 JUN 19:  Sr CEE Mumbai writes to all SSA/BA Heads in Maharashtra Circle to take review and action for loss of revenue of for application of Electricity rent for Credit Societies in BSNL for space allotted by BSNL for use of Society and also charge for electricity uses.  Letter <<<>>> 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


14 JUN 19:  AGM Admn Mumbai writes to all SSA/BA Heads in Maharashtra Circle calling for information about deployment of Security Guards and other persons for maintenance of Infrastructure.   Letter <<<>>> 

·        Though, over period of last one year, more than 75% Security guards have been reduced by BSNL Maharashtra Circle keeping many of vital installations, Exchanges without Security wherein some theft cases have been reported and no review has been taken even after repeated requests by some of SSA/BA Heads.

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


14 JUN 19:  AGM Admn Mumbai writes to all SSA/BA Heads in Maharashtra Circle calling for analysis of contract workers and vis àvis the necessity of continuation of contract labors. Letter <<<>>>

·        It is seen that efforts are being made to give maximum works on contracts through different centralized tenders from Circle office from Circle office and for that the contract labors engaged in similar works are being reduced and it has badly affected quality of services provided by BSNL.

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

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

He shared the undue support of Govt to Private companies and deliberate attempts to weaken the Govt PSU BSNL. He appealed the gathering that we have to run BSNL in any condition. Many Government offices have started to give important lease lines, mobile connections and BSNL is being neglected. He elaborated how with introduction of 4G services by BSNL in 3G spectrum has adversely affected the BSNL customer growth due to compulsions for changing majority of handsets not compatible with BSNL 4G services. Many handsets are not compatible with the 2100 band; hence, our customers are not getting 4G services in districts where BSNL has commissioned 4G services. The negative and false news in print and digital media also affected the growth of BSNL and has caused damage to brand image of BSNL.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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