28 Jun 21: DGM Legal Mumbai
issued revised transfer orders from Tenure stations to Non-Tenure stations and
vice versa wherein request of executives who are completing tenure up to
30/06/2021 are given consideration. AGM /SDE /JTO Order <<<>>> JE Order <<<>>>
The earlier order
was issued on 22/06/2021 considering request as well as to meet shortage of
executives in some of SSAs and same was kept in abeyance on 02/06/2021 as
certain discrepancies were brought to the notice of CGMT MH by SNEA MH as per
the feedback from District Secretaries.
CGMT MH was kind
enough to note the grievances and hardship faced by the executives against the
Transfer policy guidelines, pick and choose transfers, increase in number of
transfers and mainly cost on transfers when BSBL is not having money to pay
monthly salaries etc.
As decided in
meeting and continuously pursued by SNEA MH , now the earlier bulk transfers
are kept in abeyance and now transfer orders are being reviewed and issued in phase manner by taking concerned raised by
Thus, in first phase
of revised transfer orders from Tenure stations to Non-Tenure stations and vice
versa the request of all executives who are completing tenure up to 30/06/2021
are given consideration and executives in Circle long stay list are posed as
In this revised
order, there is no single change in the request transfers from Tenure Stations
to Non Tenure stations, but there is some change in the substitute posted for
relieving these executives who have completed their tenure at Tenure stations
and requested for transfer to choice SSA.
The request of
executives who have already completed tenure at any of Tenure stations for not
transferring to tenure station again is now given consideration as per
guidelines on the subject and their names are kept aside from long stay list of
But as these executives
are in Circle long stay list and they will be posted to SSAs having shortage of
executives and hence they will have to submit their choice stations among these
stations. Many of executives have submitted their request for change of SSA and
same will be given consideration in next phase of transfer orders to fill
vacant post at Shortage SSAs.
Apart from this the
review of Immunity granted has been reviewed in some of Office Bearers and some
are granted immunity and immunity granted to some OBs has been withdrawn as per
the guidelines on subject.
The change of SSA
from tenure to Non tenure stations granted in some specific cases is also
corrected and transfer orders are issued as per transfer policy for posting
substitute at tenure stations.
Thus the concerned
raised by SNEA MH on all the points has been taken care and fresh orders are
issued only in respect of Tenure to Non Tenure stations & vice versa and
till all other transfer orders continued to be in abeyance.
The further review
is going and work for calculation of SSA wise executive strength with
corrections in actually working strength in each SSA is going on. Once it is
finalized there will be review of Shortage /Excess executives in particular SSA
and then action will be initiated for filling vacant post of executives from
the executives in SSAs having excess executives by publishing data of SSA wise
Excess/Shortage of executives along with working strength and calling for
willingness/options for filling vacant post in the SSAs having shortage.
The options can be
given by the executives in other SSAs and options with own cost will be given
priority over the option with company cost.
sufficient options are not received for any SSA, then the longest stayed
executives from the SSAs having excess executives will be transferred at
company cost to SSAs having shortage of executives.
Thus longest stayed
executives in SSA having excess executives will get choice to join any of SSA
or be ready to be posted at any of SSA at company cost.
request transfers from Non tenure to Non tenure SSAs will be given
consideration on one to one basis as per policy for posting substitute for
request transfers and here also preference will be given for one to one request
and own cost requests.
The review of
transfers of JEs/JTOs to CNTXW has been completed but there is till more
requirement from CNTXW Circle and we have requested CNTXW Circle to have
rearrangements among existing JEs/JTOs/SDEs in CMNTXW Circle itself before
requesting for additional JTOs/JEs as MH Circle also has shortage and long stay
list needs to be operated equally for MH Telecom Circle and CNTXW Circle.
The review of
transfers from Mobile section to SSA and posting to Pune Nodal/Mobile is also
being reviewed and revised orders will be
SNEA MH regrets for
the delay and inconvenience caused to the executives who were waiting for
relieving after consideration of their request transfers and could not be
relieved as orders were kept in abeyance.
In first phase
review of requests from Tenure to Non tenure transfers is completed and in
similar manner the review of request transfers from Non tenure to tenure
transfers is being done and there will not be change in request transfers
unless said executives comes under long stay list of SSA having excess
executives as per revised strength to post at SSAs having shortage of
But there will be
certain changes in other Non-tenure Company cost transfers and as option will
be available for these executives to opt for any of the vacant post published
or be ready to be posted at any of such SSA at company cost.
The executives from
SSAs not having excess executives, will not be transferred till there is any
one to one request to their working SSAs and hence there will be much changes
in the company cost transfer orders issued from SSAs not having excess
SNEA MH appeals all
the executives who are appearing in the Circle/SSA long stay list for transfers
to Non tenure stations to have self-analysis of his/her position in the long
stay list and decide to opt for any place suitable to him/her or be ready for
transfer at any of the SSA having shortage of executives as per revised
strength which will be published shortly or to SSA from which incoming
request/s are pending to their present/working SSA.

issued revised transfer orders of JTOs/JEs for posting at CNTXW Circle at
Gadchiroli. Letter <<<>>>
Posting of JTO/JE at
CNTXW at Gadchiroli has been under dispute since last one and half year as
wrong process was started by staff section for considering request of JTO at
CNTXW Gadchiroli which was to be considered by CNTXW Circle.
The JTO under transfer
has been held up at Gadchiroli after issuing this order for last 18 months
after completion of tenure as 5 to 6 orders issued thereafter were not
implemented as same were not as per the guidelines on the subject.
SNEA MH has always
pursued for posting of executives as per the policy guidelines. In last
meeting, it was decided that incumbent JE/JTO joining SSA was posted at CNTXW
instead of issuing one more transfer from SSA to CNTXW Circle and same was followed for all other SSA and not for CNTXW Gadchiroli.
Finally again matter has been taken up by SNEA MH
and now revised order is issued by posting incumbent JE at CNTXW Circle and
matter has been resolved once for all and well within the transfer policy
guidelines and BSNL money for more transfers is saved with this single order.

This is unfortunate that
Poles purchased before three years are underutilized, even not installed , but
till requirement of fresh Poles is called.
The Smart City Poles
are costing about Rs 45 Lakhs each pole and BSNL has purchased total 35 such
Smart City Poles and two are installed in Maharashtra Circle one at CO Mumbai
and another at Nashik.
These poles are
white Elephants of BSNL and have not earned any revenue for BSNL as these Poles
are erected in BSNL premises before three years and are made functional in last
These poles may be
utilized in Smart City Projects for generation of revenue as projected but same
are installed in BSNL premises and there is no revenue generation from it and
BSNL Money is being wasted on it maintenance as AMC is part of its Purchase Order.
One side BSNL is not
having money to pay monthly salary and another side Cores of hard earned Money
is being wasted on such unwanted and underutilized procurement and such
centralized procurement without requirement in filed units and pressure to Circles
for its utilization is one of the reasons which are causing loss to BSNL and
needs to be reviewed stopped immediately.

of executives. Then the work of restoration of request transfers from Non

CO writes to all Circle Heads/IFAs on prohibition on bringing any political or outside
influence to further employee’s interest in respect of matters pertaining to
employment, postings or transfers in BSNL. Further in separate letter to CGM
ITPC Pune it has been directed to create and enable provision in ERP to make
entry of such influence/pressures as and when received so as to initiate action
appropriate action against such employees. Letter <<<>>> Letter to
CGM ITPC <<<>>>
It is important point that one side grievances of
employees are not taken care by certain officers in administration and under
such situation the employees are compelled to approach political influence. If
administration takes care of issues and grievances, no employee will approach
If this rule is strictly followed by
Management/Administration that none of them will bow to the political influence
and strictly adhere to the rules and guidelines of BSNL , no one will approach
the political parties/leaders , but unfortunately it is seen that in some
specific cases these officers act on
political influence when it is from highly influential political leader
and action against employees is taken when the political leader to whom he/she
has approach is not having such important position in political scenario.
There is need of provision against the officers
in administration/management who bows against such political pressure on case
by case basis and just taking action against employees for bringing political
pressure/influence is not sufficient to resolve this issue to its root cause.
Let us hope that Management /administration will
listen/address genuine grievances of all the employees and will not compel the
employees to approach political leaders as excepted in these letters and till
if anyone approaches the political influence, it will not be entertained by the
said officers in administration /management and they will strictly adhere to
these guidelines issued by BSNL Corporate office.
SNEA MH appeals to all its members to respect
these orders for not bringing political pressure/influence and respect these
orders by representing their grievances with concerned authorities in BSNL
administration/management by putting grievances in proper manner and with

15 Jun 21: DGM Legal Mumbai
issued orders for partial restoration of Transfers Orders of JEs and JTOs
issued for CNTXW Circle. JTO Order <<<>>> JE Order <<<>>>
SNEA MH has raised the certain issues with CGMT
MH in issuing transfer orders from MH Circle to CNTXW Circle viz. consideration
of own cost request transfers with priority over company cost transfers,
unwanted transfers from SSA to CNTXW Circle while fresh incumbent to these SSAs
can be posted to CNTXW, issue of counting stay of the executives while counting
shortest stay for transfer to CNTXW Circle, Issuing Tenure stations orders of
CNTXW Circle by MH Circle and transfer
of JEs in SSA Cadre.
Accordingly, order of one JE is cancelled and the
transfer order of Shri. Manish Kumar JTO Solapur and Shri Punit Sitre JTO Akola
continues to be held in abeyance, but transfer order of Shri. Lalit Kumar Sahoo
JTO Gadchiroli is again issued.
As per procedure followed in filling vacant post,
where incumbent JTO/JEs is not being posted, these JTOs junior most in stay among JTOs/JEs cadre
in their SSAs are transferred to CNTXW
Circle in same station criteria.
Here in case of Solapur SSA, vacant post is at
Pandharpur and not at Solpaur and hence the presumption by Staff section that
transfer is at same station is wrong.
It was also agreed by all present in the meeting
by CGMT MH Circle that where incumbent is available i.e. CNTXW at Solapur,
Gadchiroli and Akola , and incumbent JTOs/JE will be posted at CNTXW Circle in
these and similar other SSAs
In Gadchiroli also one JTO and one JE is posted
from Nagpur and it is quite possible to post these incumbent to CNTXW
Gadchiroli, but again transfer order of Shri. Sahoo is issued. It is important
that Shri. Sahoo is not junior most executives in Gadchiroli SSA, there are
other five officers who have joined in Gadchiroli after joining of Com Sahoo. Copy <<<>>>
As per discussions in the meeting and assurance
by GM HR and CGMT MH, it was expected that orders of same station where incumbent is available
will be cancelled, but orders in respect of two JTOs continued to be in
abeyance and order of Shri. Sahoo is again issued with wrong data and against
decision taken in the meeting.
This order for Gadchiroli is one more attempt of
covering earlier mistakes by Staff section is issuing transfer order of JTO
under WTR Circle which is not implemented for last one and half year due to
wrong assumptions and presumptions by officers in staff section. Copy <<<>>>
The transfer order of JTO in WTR Gadchiroli was supposed
to be issued by WTR Circle and not by MH Circle, but it was issued wrongly and
thereafter this may be sixth/seventh order to cover up this wrong order and
said JTO continues to suffer as he is not relieved for last 15 months, as his
request is not properly handled by MH Circle.
It is to be noted that recently CNTXW Circle has
posted one SDE at WTR Gadchiroli, which underlines that order issued by MH
Circle on name of completion of Tenure at Gadchiroli is wrong, but efforts are
continued to establish this wrong order as correct order and again Com. Sahoo
is transferred to Gadchiroli.
Further, it is important that for Goa, and
Nandurbar in Dhule District which are tenure stations , the posting needs to be
issued by longest stayed officers in CNTXW Circle, but MH Circle has issued
orders by posting JTOs/JES at these locations with again wrong precedence as
that of Gadchiroli. There are many JTOs in CNTXW Circle, who are having stay
more than these officers in MH Circle, but they are safeguarded and juniors in
stay are compelled to join at these tenure stations under CNTXW Circle. Even
some of executives with highest stay in MH Circle are enjoying deputation at
CNTXW at popular stations and JTOs working at non-popular locations like Akola
and having comparatively less stay are compelled to join at these Tenure
Stations under CNTXW Circle.
Further, other executives have submitted Own Cost
Transfers to Goa and Dhule CNTXW, but by neglecting their own cost request,
others are posted at Company cost to these locations and this is direct loss to
It is important that apart from individual own
cost requests, the CNTXW Circle has recommended these own cost requests and
sent to MH Circle for consideration, but same are deliberately neglected or not
taken into consideration. CNTXW letter <<<>>>
From this it is clear that till issues are not
being taken care properly and in simple review order of Request transfers to
CNTXW Circle, the orders are again issued with certain issued already discussed
and agreed. This may have happened due to fact that these officers who are
issuing order may not be present in the meeting or may not be given update
information on instructions given by CGMT MH.
SNEA MH will again bring it to notice of new GM
HR Admn Mumbai and CGMT MH for corrective actions in the interest of BSNL as
well as affected executives who are willing to join these stations with willingness
and at own cost and who are not willing to join at these odd locations.

15 Jun 21: DGM SCT BSNL CO
writes to CGMT MH Circle for releasing the Leave encashment payment of have
retired or retiring on VR/VRS/Superannuation. Letter <<<>>>
This letter does not say anything new, but it has
added one more condition of indemnity bond.
Thus the certain officers in Maharashtra Circle
and BSNL CO continues to play with life of the employees against whom the
complaints of caste validity are received in bulk or individually.
It seems that instead of releasing pending Leave
encashment payments, the matter has been twisted and now one additional
condition of indemnity bond is added which was never before.
Further, the condition of applying for Caste
validity continues though it has been clarified in certain guidelines that it
is not required for case before introduction of Cate Validity.
As per VRS 2019, in case of any employee having
any compliant or disciplinary case pending, then his/her all the pensionary
benefits are to be withheld and in case of caste validity, if he/she has
applied for Caste validity, then all payments are to be released.
It is important that BSNL has issued Vigilance
Clearance for the retirement meaning that there is no case pending against
these retired employees. If Vigilance clearance was not granted then their VRS
would not have approved and these employees would have continued to get monthly
salary. But unfortunately, now they will continue to face critical situation
wherein they are neither getting Salary nor getting pension/pensionary benefits
and this happens on selective basis to certain executives.
As per the guidelines available on Pensioners
Portal under Head Leave Encashment it is clearly mentioned that Leave
Encashment is not Pensionary benefit and it is naturally expected that same
should be released and has been released by all Circle except Maharashtra
The Leave Encashment is released by all Circles
including CNTXW Mumbai but only the extra smart officers in Recruitment Section
continues to apply their interpretation on Leave Encashment as Pensionary
Benefits and are asking clarification for last two years and matter is further
complicated as now additional clause of Indemnity bond is added in it meaning
that the Leave Encashment will continue to kept on hold and about 200 employees
in Maharashtra Circle will continue to suffers and harassed by denying their
It is important that in Maharashtra Circle also
some of retired person have received leave encashment as well as other
pensionary benefits, but some are even denied Leave encashment which is payable
to them for services rendered by them which has no relation with Caste
Thus this letter by BSNL CO issued on name of
releasing Leave Encashment is nothing but addition of one more condition of
indemnity bond, which was never existence before and this has further
complicated the issue and there is nothing new in this letter.
This is best example how such sensitive issues
are kept undecided by shunting in files from one office to another office and
how the sufferers are made to suffer with such unwanted clarification with
additional conditions even after their retirement that to be with more

4 Jun 21: DGM legal Mumbai issued orders
keeping the transfer orders of AGM, SDE, JTO and JEs issued on 22/05/2021. Order I <<<>>> Order II <<<>>>
In the online meeting held by CGMT MH with all
associations on 02/06/2021, it was decided to go ahead with Tenure transfer
orders and to keep in abeyance the transfer orders from Non-Tenure to
Non-Tenure stations as there are serious issues with this orders.
Though it was declared and certified at earlier
stage that there are no issues in transfer order and it is the perfect order
and leaders of some associations have not found anything wrong in this
order, SNEA has brought to the notice of
CGMT MH the issues created by this order, and hardship faced by executives.
CGMT MH is kind enough to taken serious note of
it and finally after discussions with Majority, Support and Welfare
association, it was decided for continuing Tenure transfers as it is, keeping
Non-Tenure to Non-Tenure orders in abeyance, first filling vacant post at SSAs
having shortage and then giving consideration to request transfers on one to
one basis was agreed
by all associations.
It was not at all decided to keep on hold the
Tenure transfer orders in the meeting, but may be to take care of so called
pyramid of transfers, tenure Transfer orders are also kept abeyance.
This order of keeping in abeyance all transfer
orders, has created the unrest among the executives who are waiting for their
request transfer for last 2-3 years as some are already relieved and joined at
transferred SSA, some were to be relived within day or two and some of them
have shifted family also.
DS and COBs of SNEA have received such calls,
requests from the executives who have become panic due to the abeyance order
and were curious about the uncertainty created.
SNEA MH has already clarified that it has been
already agreed by all that there are no issues in the request transfers from
Tenure to Non-Tenure as well as Non -Tenure to Non-Tenure stations except few
cases whose names may appear at the top of the long stay list. Others need not
worry about it as all other orders will be restored shortly as CGMT MH is
personally keeping watch on all these activities.
With this abeyance action, there will not be any
changes in request transfers, only there is just delay of few days and
hence no one should become panic but bear with it in larger interest and
support our own colleagues to get justice and be assured that all request
transfers will be restored shortly as it is.

4 Jun 21: DGM legal Mumbai
issued order for posting of Shri. Ajay
Mohite AO Aurangabad as CAO Aurangabad with immediate corrigendum to it by
changing his posting as CAO from earlier posting as CAO TR Aurangabad. Order <<<>>> Corrigendum <<<>>>
This is best example how works are over delayed
in Staff section Mumbai and how decisions are taken with bare violation of the
BSNL guidelines on the subject and how issues are kept shunting in files when
the grievances are raised with supporting documents and pursued vigorously.
Shri. Mohite has represented for considering his name
for posting as IFA Aurangabad as the AO Junior to him is posted as IFA and he
is compelled to work under Junior who is posted as IFA Aurangabad.
Shri. Mohite has first represented his grievances
in Oct/Nov 2019 and since then he is pursuing for the same and matter has been
personally discussed with AD Staff A Mumbai, AGM Staff A Mumbai, DGM Legal
Mumbai, GM HR Mumbai, DGM Fin Mumbai, GM Fin Mumbai.
SNEA MH also has discussed this issue with all on
repeated occasions with supporting documents in the say of Com Mohite. Though
all have agreed to grievances raised by Shri. Ajay Mohite about compulsions for
working under junior, but issue was kept lingering from table to table and
officers to officers.
But in deliberate attempt, the grievances are
kept shunting in files and e files for last two years and finally this eye wash
order is issued by giving him CAO LA Orders.
Shri. Mohite has repeatedly requested to post him as IFA Aurangabad but even after
historical time of about one hand half years is taken by staff section to
understand his simple grievances and unfortunately after understanding it to
depth, he is posted as CAO LA and not IFA Aurangabad.
Most important is that in this simple order the
corrigendum is issued within two days as good as replacement of original order
as in earlier order he was posted as CAO and in this corrigendum he is posted
as CAO TR Aurangabad under LA arrangements.
Entire efforts and time taken has been vanished
with this corrigendum as he has repeatedly submitted grievances for posting him
as IFA and never as CAO TR Aurangabad as being done with this corrigendum.
This happens when the junior AO Shri. Harish
Sable posted as IFA Aurangabad has told in clear worlds that he is unwilling to
work as IFA and Shri, Mohite who is senior to him should be posted as IFA
Aurangabad, but till such corrigendum are issued as officers in Circle Office
are not ready to correct their mistake.
Shri. Mohite has registered his protest by
submitting refusal to accept this Looking After order
for CAO TR and will continue to raise his grievances to post him as IFA being
Shri. Ajay Mohite will surely get justice through his prolonged persuasion by all means
and at all levels and now its matter of time when the decision making officers
concerned in Circle Office, accept their mistake of posting senior under junior
and show willingness to correct it.
Jun 21: Special Online Meeting by CGMT MH with Associations to
review the recent Transfers: A special online meeting of Associations was called
by Shri. Ramakant Sharma, CGMT MH Circle on 02/06/2021 at
1200 hrs to discuss the issues created due to recent transfers and
unrest among the affected executives. Apart from CGMT MH, from
Management side this meeting was attended by Shri. Aman Jaiswal GM HR MH CO, Shri. M.S.
Hanchate OSD to
CGMT MH. The
invitation of meeting was conveyed by Shri. B. S. Laswante, DGM legal Mumbai. This meeting was
attended by two leaders of each Association viz. AIGETOA, SNEA , SEWA BSNL
and AIBSNLEA. From SNEA MH this meeting was attended by Shri. Abhay
Kesarkar, JS CE SNEA
M. N. Kotambe, ACS SNEA
MH and Shri. M.
S. Adasul, CS SNEA MH.
meeting held on Saturday 29/05/2021, SNEA MH has elaborately conveyed CGMT MH
about the difficulties faced by executives due to mass transfers that to at odd
locations and all other issues like violation of transfer policy guidelines,
wastage of BSNL Money on company cost transfers, issuing transfers in
non-transparent manner, keeping executives in dark about their turn in long
stay transfers and specific issues created to trouble executives during
critical pandemic situation. After elaborate discussions in this meeting, CGMT
MH has stressed on need of understanding among all the associations on policy
decision in transfers of executives within Maharashtra Circle.
start of meeting SNEA MH has raised objection how AIBSNLEA is allowed to
participate in this official meeting. GM HR replied that it is purview and
powers of administration to allow associations.
We have conveyed that participation of any association other than
majority and support association it is not permitted by recognition rules. If
administration feels that there is need of understanding among all
associations, then they should call all the participants associations and here
only AIBSNLEA is favoured and allowed to participate while other participant
associations are not called or invited for this meeting. GM HR replied that he
is free to call any association and SNEA should not try to control
administration. We have objected this stand against recognition rules and
brought to the notice of CGMT MH that this is deliberate attempt to allow only
AIBSNLEA on pick and choose basis with specific intention behind it. We have
added that how AIBSNLEA is called only for the meeting on issues related to
transfer posting and how it was not called for meeting on decision of Medical
Corpus fund. We further narrated that CS AIBSNLEA has written complaint about
violation of recognition rules in granting immunity. Here administration is
violating same recognition rule and by ignoring his compliant of violation of
recognition rules, administration is allowing only single non recognised
association to participate in the meeting which is serious and deliberate violation
of recognition rules. We also elaborated
that by knowing that GM HR want to favor and oblige AIBSNLEA by such special
appearance in the meeting, since call for meeting from DGM legal, we have
repeatedly requested and reminded DGM legal Mumbai and OSD to CGMT that they
should bring it to your kind notice and restrict this meeting to majority
Association, Support Association and Welfare association and no other
association should be allowed in the meeting. Unfortunately, though both have
assured to bring the matter to your kind notice, but same seems to be not taken
care for known reasons.
understanding concern expressed by SNEA for respecting recognition rule and
issues thereof CGMT MH expressed that AIBSNLEA is called for meeting to avoid
complaints at later stage. We have responded that compliant can be made by
anyone and administration has to take corrective action if there is base in
allegations thereof. Just because someone is complainant, he should not be
allowed in the official meeting creating wrong trend thereof. CGMT MH informed
that let us not make issue and let us start the discussions. Even though it was
illegal and unethical, by keeping in mind the need to discuss issues in the
interest of executives in Maharashtra Circle, respecting the views of CGMT MH,
SNEA MH has not much stretched this issue further and then meeting continued
with participation of representatives of AIBSNLEA also.
started with brief address by GM HR wherein he first conveyed the purpose of
the meeting. He elaborated that since transfer orders are issued certain
grievances are raised by AIGETOA, SNEA and SEWA BSNL. He also added that there
are individual representations received on the transfers stating different
reasons. SSA Heads also have raised concern on certain transfer and requested
to review it. Accordingly CGMT MH has decided to call meeting of all
associations to know their stand on policy decisions and to have review of
orders accordingly. He also briefed that while issuing transfers, he has taken at
most care but till there are certain issues left and unnoticed by him and his
team and same are pointed out by associations. He specifically mentioned that
AIGETOA and SNEA have conveyed their views but till there is need of
understanding on all these issues so that all the issues in this transfer can
be taken care of. He stressed that the main reason for mass transfers is
consideration of request by associations for executives from non-tenure
stations who have completed three years of service in present SSA. He added
that if this was not given consideration, there would not have been any issue.
He said that there is no issue in Tenure transfers except few individual cases
which can be taken care. But in transfer orders issued as per annexure B, there
are issues and it is under conflict and needs review. He added that now it is
open to administration to cancel all the request transfers from Non-Tenure to
Non -Tenure station and reduce number of transfers or make corrections in
transfers order issued and associations should give their views. He added that
it is propagated that these are mass transfers, but fact is that majority are
request transfers and others are transfers to fill these vacant posts created
on consideration of request transfers and
posts vacant since VRS 2019. He said that as no transfers were issued
since VRS, there will be mass dislocation whoever may be issuing transfers.
There is need of executives in certain and in can exigency plan these orders
are issued. He added that while issuing transfer orders he has taken care that
executives are posted in nearby SSA, and dislocation is kept at minimum, but
till it is complained that executives are posted at faraway places. He stressed
that after VRS, there is vacuum created in these SSAs while SSAs like Nagpur,
Amravati have executives more than the justified post and no vacancy exists in
Vidarbha area except at Chandrapur SSA. He pleaded that vacancies created are
at one corner and excess executive are at another corner. Hence certain executives
at Nagpur and Amaravati will have to join at these SSAs having shortage of
executives and no one can stop it. In conclusion he invited suggestions for the
associations for meeting this exigency and with assurance to give consideration
CGMT MH in
his brief address expressed concern about this special meeting and expressed
displeasure on overall issues created in transfer posting and post transfer
issues thereof. He narrated that there
is need of overall growth of BSNL and hence there is need of executives
everywhere. CGMT MH expressed that no one want to move on transfer and
everybody wants to be at same place. He added that SSAs like Sindhudurg are
giving good revenue and same cannot be neglected with acute manpower shortage.
Many executives have represented for retention and cancellation of transfer
orders and it is not possible to consider all requests. He emphasized that he
has taken stand to consider all request from non-tenure stations so that
executives regain faith and confidence that their request are given
consideration in time and should focus on office work by putting their full
energy. He added that efforts were taken to have minimum transfers but anyhow
there are issues which should have taken care and are not taken care for whatever
may be reason. CGMT MH shared that after going through views of SSA/BA Heads,
Associations and individual representations, he was of the opinion that he
should cancel all the transfer orders. CGMT MH conveyed in clear words that he
accepts that the certain issues were not taken care and as Circle Head he takes
its responsibility and assured to have corrective actions.
further added that now he has understood the issues and before moving further
on review of the transfers issued he want to know the views of Associations. He
assured to consider the views of all associations with mutual understanding to
avoid complaints at later stage and hence he has called online meeting. He
specifically stressed that he is open for all suggestions and assured to take
corrective actions. In conclusion of
address, CGMT MH appealed all associations to give their feedback and
suggestions so that it is possible for him to take care of issues of SSAs
having shortage of executives and also there is no major hardship to
Then GM HR
asked all associations for sharing their views one by one starting from
presentation, CS AIGETOA has conveyed that there are no major issues in these
transfers as GM HR has taken lot of efforts and pains taken in issuing orders
and appreciated efforts thereof. He further elaborated that there are certain
issues if taken care would have been helped in dislocation of executives from
one corner to another. He added that transfers should have issued in phase
manner and issuing bulk transfers is the reason for mass unrest. He also added
that the transfers are issued for faraway locations and would have been
avoided. On compliant of granting immunity, he shared that administration shall
review all cases of immunity granted and if there is any issue, same should be
corrected as per guidelines. He stressed that executives who have opted for
nearby station and having more stay are given consideration and executives with
less stay are transferred relatively at faraway places. If option was given to
all to opt, there would have been fair process. He mentioned that though his
association has not got majority votes in MH Circle, as per all India voting it
is majority association and hence views expressed by his association should be
given consideration regardless of membership strength. He also added that
transfers should have reduced by issuing it in phase manner. In conclusion, he appealed that there are
certain issues with the transfer orders and same may be taken care. On cancellation
of transfers or its review, he added that there I no need of cancellation of
transfer orders and issues may be settled by review.
CS SNEA MH in his presentation first conveyed thanks to CGMT MH for spearing
ample time to discuss the issues created to transfer posting and understanding
concern expressed by association. He added that we have already shared views in
the meeting and hopeful that all these points will be taken care.
that he want to make some additions to earlier issues that on further analysis
it is seen that there are changes in the data of working executive strength of
each SSA due to transfers out of Maharashtra circle, deaths, retirements etc.
He quoted sample case of Nashik SSA, wherein 112 working executives are taken
into count by whereas practically there are only 80 SDEs/JTOs and 19 JEs means
total 99 executives are working in Nashik SSA. Out of that one SDE is under
transfer to A&N Circle, two JTOs under rule 8 transfer and one is due for
superannuation in coming few months. Thus there will be only 95 executives
available in Nashik SSA. The justified strength is 91 and as per review done
there should be s increase in it. Thus only maximum only four executives would
have been declared excess in Nashik, but in these transfers total 21 SDEs/JTOs
are transferred out of Nashik SSA and only two are posted to Nashik SSA thereby
creating net shortage of 19 executives in Nashik SSA.
further that if transfers are issued without updating data, it will have direct
impact on working of these SSAs which are having major contribution of revenue.
He added that EB section Mumbai which is major source of revenue will be badly
affected due to mass transfers from this section.
that while posting executives to Pune SSA also there is issue as executives
working in Pune SSA are shown as working in Pune Mobile and substitute is
posted to Pune Mobile. This will reduce the strength of Pune SSA directly and
Mobile Pune will get more manpower. He stressed that the working executives of
Nagpur SSA also needs to be corrected as many executives have left Nagpur on
transfer and deaths due to Covid and hence updating of data is must.
these issue, SNEA requested to publish data of SSA wise executive strength
showing relevant details for all SSAs which can be understood easily. It will
clear what are the figures taken by Staff section and what are practically
available in field units and it will be real transparent working.
that SNEA was never against transfers of executives on need basis, but it
should be in transparent manner and by giving opportunity to executives to opt
for any of the SSAs, where there is need of executives. All of sudden
transfers, without opportunity of options and even making them aware about
their turn in long stay transfers, is matter of concern by all.
narrated that it is unfair to see that one side executive form one SSA with
just one or two years stay is transferred on name of long stay and other
side Executives with more than 20 years’ service is given choice or retained in
same SSA, is matter of concern and its deliberate injustice. He said that if
the list of request transfers was published, then concerned executives would
have decided to opt suitable station and may have been opted at own cost which
will have reduced cost of transfers.
further added that if there is need of more number of executives in certain
SSAs having acute shortage, then management should come out with firm proposal
and assurances as one time measure that executives posted to these SSAs will be
considered for transfer to choice SSA after completion of two years’ service in
these SSAs as one time tenure facility. This will help in getting more
willingness or executives under transfer may join immediately. He further
informed that if there is acute shortage in some of SSA, as one time measure,
the transfers out of these SSAs at company cost may be kept on hold for one
year period so that it will reduce the number of transfers at this stage and
less executives will be affected by transfers.
expressed concern that the executives and their family members are already
under tension due to issues created by second wave of pandemic and continued
lockdown and there is need on part of management that number of transfers are
kept at minimum and at the time transfers of executives who has completed their
tenure are implemented at the earliest.
reproduced that the transfers needs to be issued in phase manner and in bulk in
single order, which is cause propagation of mass transfers giving bad name to
On grant of
immunity, he made stand of SNEA clear that no one should be allowed to claim
the immunity by wrong means. Grant of immunity to OBs of associations is normal
practice, but this year it come in limelight as bulk and separate list of
immunity retentions is issued before transfer orders. He added that if
something is wrong in orders granting immunity, then it should be corrected by
administration but only concern is that such cases and issues may be discussed
with concern association before issuing cancellation order otherwise under
wrong interpretation of constitutions and rules there will be more issues.
discussions on majority status of AIGETOA, CS SNEA confirmed that the results
of MV are known to all no one should have doubt about majority status of
AIGETOA. But at the same time it is required that management respects these
results of MV conducted by BSNL and restrict official discussions only among
majority, support and welfare association. He added that this time it may be
continued as participants are in, requested to take care in future.
where to review orders or cancel orders, CS SNEA informed that there are issues
in this order and SNEA has categorically brought to the notice of CGMT MH all
such cases and only required is corrective action as per guidelines of transfer
policy. He further added that there is no issue in Tenure transfers except one
left out case and hence tenure transfer orders should be continued to operate.
transfers from non-tenure stations also there are no issues except one or two
left out cases and same should be taken care. Only issues are in company cost
transfers and during our discussions, CGMT MH has assured to give consideration
to all these representation on case by case basis. Hence there is no need of
cancellation of transfer order in total and only corrective action may be taken
in time bound manner.
specifically pointed out that some rumors are being spread before this meeting
that orders will be cancelled and no scope may be given to such rumors creating
unrest among executives under transfers. It was pointed out that the
implementation of orders has been started and some of executives are already
relieved or on the way to relieved shortly and cancellation will have impact on
conclusion of presentation, CS SNEA requested CGMT MH to give consideration to
all issues brought to his notice by SNEA and requested for giving consideration
to individual representations and proposal by BA/SSA Heads and resolve the
issues at the earliest. CS SNEA conveyed thanks for efforts by CGMT for taking
steps towards transparent working and going to the depth of the issues created
by mass transfers and firm assurances for corrective actions.
CS SEWA BSNL was directed by GM HR to present views of association wherein he
has praised GM HR for issuing excellent orders. He narrated that he has not
seen such orders in the past and GM HR has done wonderful job in these orders.
Only major concern on his part that Immunity from transfers is granted to
majority and support association and the Office Bearers of SEWA BSNL are not
given immunity and transferred without any consideration. He added that he has
submitted names of such OBs who are need of immunity and requested to give
consideration to their immunity.
CS AIBSNLEA was directed by GM HR to present his views and shared that these
transfer orders are excellent and widely accepted by all. He appreciated
efforts taken by GM HR in issuing transfer orders in excellent manner with day
and night hard work. He said that there is no reason for any unrest on part of
any one and only issue that shops of transfer posting opened by some
associations will be closed by issuing such excellent order. It was just fifth
or sixth sentence of presentations and such random allegation of “Shops opened
by some associations on transfer posting” was made and immediately objected by
SNEA MH and we have drawn attention of CGMT MH for such words. We strongly
pleaded that either it should be told in clear words which association is
having shops of transfer posting and facts should be established or these words
should be taken back. Just random allegations has spoiled presentation in the
meeting and we informed CGMT MH this is reason why only AIBSNLEA is allowed in
this meeting. By understanding strong and serious concern expressed by SNEA MH,
CGMT MH directed to stop further presentation by AIBSNLEA and directed GM HR to
sum up issues as per feedback from other associations.
GM HR while
summing up issues added that there are certain issues in the transfers like
transfer of dead person, double transfer of SDEs who are already under
transfers, transfer to non-tenure stations of executives who are under tenure
transfers, transfers at faraway places, transfers of JTOs due for transfer
under rule 8, corrections in stay particulars, Publication of executive
strength etc and CGMT MH has already decided to get it corrected and action
will be taken accordingly. But till administration needs executives at specific
locations and it is matter of concern in today’s meeting. He agreed that the
executives with less stay are transferred at faraway places but it is due to
consideration of request transfers. He added that name of SEWA BSNL was left
while granting immunity and it is being reviewed and immunity will be granted
to all eligible OBs. He added that data required from immunity is being called
from SSAs and the matter will be reviewed on feedback from SSAs. Now only matter left is where the transfers
orders issued are to be cancelled or it should be continued with corrections.
He added that all associations have said that this is good order and except few
corrections, there is no issue on part of any association. He added that if
these corrections are to be issued, then there will change in structure of
transfer pyramid. He specifically added that there are no issues in Tenure
transfers and it will allowed to operate as it is. Only issue is about the
company cost transfers from Non-tenure to Non-Tenure stations. Some of these
transfers are effected due to consideration of request transfers. GM HR further
suggested that to have relook at the wrong transfers it is better that all transfers
including request transfers from Non-Tenure to Non-Tenure stations are
cancelled and fresh orders are issued in period of one month and he requested
CGMT MH to give his decision. GGMT MH agreed to his proposal and informed that
with cancellation all the issues and grievances can be taken care as fresh.
SNEA and AIGETOA have informed in same words that there is no need of
cancellation orders and review should be taken on it. But GM HR continued with
say that then issues will be continued and only 2-3 executives in major SSAs
will be retained and individual representation on medical and education grounds
can only be considered and all orders will continued.
presented that there is possibility of giving consideration to individual
representations and proposals by SSA/BA Heads in better way and if permitted
SNEA is ready to submit such proposal. We added that if one time tenure is
declared for SSAs having shortage more than ten executives, definitely there
will much more willing comrades and some of executives who are under transfer
will also join willingly. But the proposal of one time tenure was not agreed
and CGMT MH told that when it is assured to get back transfer within three
years, it has no meaning to have such special privilege. He added that such
frequent transfers affects the works as executive concerned do not put much
energy in office works and is waiting for completion of two years tenure and to
go back. He suggested to go as it is and firmly assured that three years
criteria will be strictly followed.
Concluding discussions, with permission of CGMT
MH, GM HR conveyed decision that the Transfer orders from Tenure Stations to
Non-tenure stations will continue to operate as it is and there will be no
change as such. He added that the transfer orders issued from Non-Tenure to
Non-tenure stations will be issued fresh and till time all Non-Tenure to
Non-tenure orders will be kept in abeyance. He further clarified that first
priority will be given to fill up vacant post of executives in shortage SSAs by
calling willingness from the executives which from SSAs having excess
executives. All these orders will be at company cost and executives in long
stay list have to decide among the SSAs out of these SSAs having shortage and
opt for it. If no options are received, then administration will post as per
administrative convenience with priority to options given by executives. With
this the executives who are having longest stay will be posted to SSAs having
shortage of executives and there will not be any issue of longest stay
executive is posted at choice place and less stay executive is made to suffer.
He further informed that after filling vacant post in SSAs having shortage of
executives, then the request transfers among all non-Tenure SSAs will be given

SNEA MH is
aware that there will be unrest among the executives whose transfer orders will
be kept in abeyance, and we have full sympathy with all such affected
executives. We express concern towards the difficulties faced by you all now
and earlier also. We appeal all such executives to have patience of few more
days to have corrective action to reduce trouble to our own colleagues and be
assured that all the request transfers will be restored as it is and given
consideration in transparent manner.
further appeals the executives to have self-analysis of the issues and
guidelines with his/her position in long stay list and come forward to opt for
posting to suitable SSAs which are having vacant posts and avoid dislocation at
list of request transfers also is published now in this transfer order and
executives from SSAs having incoming request should also understand their
position for going out of SSA. If his/her name is coming under zone of
transfers either due to excess strength or as substitute for incoming request
transfer, then he/she should wisely think on to opt for SSAs suitable for him
/her or otherwise be ready for posting at any of the SSA to fill up vacant post
or to the SSA from which request is under consideration to his/her working SSA
on one to one basis.
all the executives who are under zone of transfers and having medical ground
issues to be given consideration as per transfer policy guidelines, have submitted
all relevant documents with certificate of Civil surgeon justifying genuineness
of medical issues as the case will be decided on the basis of documents
submitted. If not yet submitted, they
should submit it immediately.
hope that Executives who are under zone
of transfers and whose wards will be appearing in Board exam of 12th
Standard in year 2021-22, have submitted request for retention on educational
grounds with supporting documents. If not they have to submit it immediately.
It has been decided that request on educational grounds will be given consideration for wards
appearing for 12th Exam and not for ward studying in any other
standard of school or college including 10th Board exams. All such
executives should have analysis on their own and decide for opting to suitable
station having vacant post or be ready for transfer as per administrative
unfortunate that some of executives are applying for request transfers and then
pressing for cancellation of transfer orders. All executives who have submitted
request or willingness should be ready for transfers as same cannot be
withdrawn once order is issued. If he/she do not want transfer, then he/she has
to withdraw request well in advance and the chances of cancellation of transfer
order once issued are very less rather nil.
convey to our OBs who are eligible for immunity as Office Bearers of
association as Secretary, Asst Secretary and Treasurer that the immunity is
granted for year or two and at any cost one has to join at transferred place.
After VRS, all are young comrades of age below 50 years and if he/she is due
for transfer now, their transfer is definitely due in coming days. Hence he/she
should opt for any suitable location and be ready for transfers. The
publication of list of grant of immunity in bulk has created much unrest among
the other members and they have expressed feelings to DOBs and COBs. We appeal
to all OBs to plan accordingly and avoid for opting to immunity on association
grounds to all possible extent. Till anybody want to continue with immunity, we
will definitely pursue for it and there is no issue as it is permitted as per
the recognition rule.
conclusion, it is to inform that SNEA MH has made sincere efforts to bring awareness
among the executives to avoid inconvenience after issuing transfers. We have
also successfully taken up matter with Circle management for resolving manmade
grievances and we are hopeful that CGMT MH will have review of entire
matter of transfer posting as per transfer policy guidelines. Now its duty
of each individual under zone of transfer to have self-analysis and decide on
opting for suitable place or be ready for any place of posting at
