31 Mar 20:  DGM Admn Mumbai writes to SSA/BA Heads in Maharashtra Circle for providing uninterrupted Telecom Services and availability of employees on duty.   Letter   <<<>>>

·        This letter is for maintaining the uninterrupted Telecom services and there is no point of dispute in it and we all have to contribute for uninterrupted services for beloved customers of BSNL.

·        CGMT MH and his office has already issued different letters clarifying the emergency services and delegation of powers  SSA/BA Heads for deciding on need of manpower for maintaining uninterrupted emergency services and nowhere presence of 100% staff and officers is mentioned in any earlier letter.   

·        By following these directives, the matter is being taken care by all SSAs and all the important officers and staff are attending the services with full devotion either by physical presence in office/site or by working from home.

·        Rather, it is seen that the uptime of BSNL services has increased over the lock down period as compared to earlier period. The major reason for failure of BSNL services was road-widening activities and it is good to see that during this lockdown period, the road widening activities has been stopped by said Government authorities, as result the BSNL services are running fault free to majority extent.

·        Such devoted and dedicated services rendered by BSNL and its workforce has been publically appreciated by Hon. Minister of Communication and even by Hon. Prime Minister of India and also being appreciated by the esteemed customers. 

·        But all of sudden,  such letter is issued only by MH Circle administration asking all officers to join duties physically in office with threatening that not following instructions will be treated as disobedience has created panic among all the officers and staff working in Maharashtra Circle.

·        By now, it is clear that Corona virus is spreading due to public gatherings and not maintaining social distancing and here this letter says that all should attend office and directly violate orders of Police. Police are permitting only staff on Emergency duties and BSNL has to issues letters for specific officers and staff on emergency duty and not at all as general order that all should attend office.

·        Another reason for such mass panic is that in Maharashtra State more than 200 cases have been reported Corona Positive and the cases are increasing on hourly basis. It is seen that the spreading of Corona is due to contact with the affected persons and police and all Government authorizes are announcing and pressing hard for not coming out of home.

·        In today’s scenario and situation coming out of home is official crime and any attempt of coming on roads is being punished by police on the spot that to be without any inquiry as it has direct relation with spreading of Corona Virus and here such letters are issued by BSNL MH administration with meaning that all should attend office.

·        It is fact that no one has idea who is person affected by Corona Virus and in some cases the detection of affected person is also delayed as symptoms are shown at later stage and everybody is under fear of Corona Virus. If anyone comes in his/her contact of such affected person chances of spreading Corona are more and it is seen that whatever recent cases are reported are due to not maintaining  social distancing and not following orders of Home quarantine by affected persons.

·        Here everybody from Honorable Prime Minister of India to Social workers at ground level are appealing to Stay in home during lock down period of 21 days and such special letter from DGM Admn Mumbai is being taken by certain officers as tool to create pressure on some of BSNL employees to join duties without any such  emergency in office.

·        Such instructions are issued on the day when there are highest cases of Corona Virus affected persons reported in Maharashtra State and Police authorities have put total ban on entry of the public on road to stop chain of spreading Corona Virus.

·        It is seen that some controlling officers are forcing staff and officers to join duties regardless of their satisfactory services by work from Home and when they are not involved in any emergency activities of BSNL.

·        SNEA MH has received many such complaints from members who have shared issues and difficulties they are facing due to this letter.

·        There is no public transport available and own vehicles are also not allowed by police and practically it is not possible to move anybody without valid passes for emergency services. One side police is not allowing to come out of home and other side Management is forcing to come to office and it is very difficult to follow both the orders simultaneously.

·        By taking note of the issues raised by many of the comrades, SNEA MH has discussed this issue with Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra, CGMT MH and conveyed him feelings and difficulties faced by the staff and officers due to this special letter only by BSNL Maharashtra Circle.

·        CGMT MH informed that said letter has been issued specially for getting data of the officers and staff who are giving devoted services by physical presence in the office and field units and it does not mean that all have to be physically present in the office as being interpreted by certain officers.

·        CGMT MH added that his office categorically wants to recognize the services by the staff and officers who have rendered services by putting their life at Risk and hence the information has been called from SSA/BA and Vertical heads.

·        It was further elaborated by CGMT MH that his office is well aware about the critical conditions in Maharashtra State and by understanding this conditions only  it is expected that everybody should be ready to reach office or on site in case of any emergency. It is expected that the staff and officers needs to be present physically at HQ and should reach on the spot in case of any emergency arising in his/her unit/office.  

·        CGMT MH added that some of staff and officer including officers have wrongly interpreted Work from Home and have left HQ and staying at another location away from HQ and in such cases, their availability in case of emergency cannot be ascertained.

·        CGMT MH expressed displeasure that some of officers staying in the vicinity of the offices are also seating in home as if it is holiday and when their presence is must for maintaining uninterrupted services by BSNL.

·        In conclusion, CGMT MH made it clear that the report called by DGM Admn Mumbai is just to know about the staff and officers who are working by their physical presence in the office and field units. The main idea behind it  is to know where about of the staff and officers of BSNL who are working at high risk by coming out of home during this critical period of COVID 19 and for appreciation of services of all such devoted staff and officers in coming days. There is no need of panic by any of the staff or officers who have not left HQ and all should be alert and prompt in maintaining uninterrupted services.

·        SNEA MH appreciates the concern expressed by Shri. Manoj Kumar Mishra, CGMT MH Circle and appeals all comrades to be very alert for uninterrupted Telecom Services of BSNL throughout Circle and giving due consideration to the concern expressed by SNEA MH.

·        If any of the officer is creating compulsions for physical presence in the office without any emergency conditions by quoting this letter, he /she may made aware about the views of CGMT MH  and concern expressed by him. In case of emergency services, also at most care should be taken for marinating social distancing and sanitization.

·        At the same time, no one should keep him/herself away from office responsibilities being in Telecom services as any lethargy on our part will cause huge loss to society and we will lose a good opportunity to serve nation during period of crises. While we have to be alert and prompt on services, we will have to take care of health and safety of staff and officers during pandemic Corona.

·        Now we all are at crucial phase of Corona as declared by Government and more and more cases will be reported if we do not maintain social distance and take care by not coming out of home except in emergency services. More than 100 cases of Corona positive persons are reported in last two days in Maharashtra Circle and hence it is not advisable to leave home without any real emergency by risking life of self and family members.

·        One must understand that the cities like Mumbai have never come to stand still even in most disastrous situations and it is now completely locked down for last seven days and this underlines the seriousness of Corona pandemic. Even though such extreme care is taken many cases are being reported positive and just imagine what would have been picture if all were working without lockdown strict implementation. .

·        Let us hope that entire India and world is free from Corona Virus in days to come and continue to contribute to this lifetime struggle by maintaining uninterrupted Telecom services of BSNL by observing all norms for safety of life.

30 Mar 20: DGM CA II BSNL CO writes to CGMs and IFAs giving instructions for Adhoc Payment of Ex-Garcia amount  to Optees of BSNL VRS 2019.   Letter   <<<>>>

·        This is Adhoc payments being made on the basis of funds received from Government of India.

·        Earlier it was declared that 50% of Ex Gratia Amount payable to VRS Optees would be paid by or before 31/03/2020.

·        Accordingly, initiatives are taken by Government, but instead of paying 50 % of Ex Gratia in first Installment, Adhoc payment is being released @ 31.5% of Ex Gratia Payble to VRS Optees.

·        From the contents of letter the reason for reduction of amount of First Installment and making it Adhoc Installment from 50% to 31.5 % seems to short allotment of funds by Government of India and delay in calculation and finalization  Ex-Gratia amount payable to all Officers and Staff who have opted for VRS 2019.

·        Most probably, this Adhoc Payment will be converted to First Installment of 50% as per terms and conditions of VRS 2019 and required funds will also be made available by Government of India.     

·        Certain amount from this Adhoc Payment is being kept on hold for payment of TDS and surcharge on Adhoc amount payable and final ammount will be decided while paying complete 50% amount of first Installment.

·        No Income Tax in applicable for the Adhoc payment of Ex Gratia up to total amount of Rs Five lakhs and thereafter it will be applicable as per the slab of Taxable amount.

·        This Adhoc payment of first installment will be transferred to bank account of VRS Optees latest by 31/03/2020.

·        The long stay list is generated for posting substitute to the officers who are completing tenure at All India Tenure stations and the longest stayed officer in same cadre from the Circle to which said officer has submitted request is posted as substitute.

·        Until now, this list was called manually from Circles, but now due to shortage of staff after VRS 2019, it has been decided that long stay list will be generated from ERP and hence it is written to Circle Heads for updating Cadre details, carrier History and stay particulars of Executives.

·        It is also requested to concern Executives to check for correctness of their Cadre details, carrier History, stay particulars, and pursue with SSA/Circle Admn/Staff sections for corrections required if any.

·        Since 01/04/2020, the long stay list will be generated through ERP and hence to avoid any complaints about wrong data of Cadre details, carrier History and stay particulars once transfer order is issued. 

·        This data will be utilized mainly for transfers to all India hard tenure stations and due to mass VRS, there are chances that this time it may be used for transfers from Circles having excess Executives to Non-Tenure Circles having acute shortage of Executives.

·        Due to Mass VRS 2019, there are less number officers in all Circles and there is acute shortage of executives in each and every Circle, hence chances of mass transfers are less, but few transfers will not be avoidable.

·        BSNL Corporate Office is preparing the Manpower Plan for proper utilization of remaining manpower and such decision for posting to Circles with shortage of Executives may be taken after approval of said Man Power Plan.

·        If anyone wants to avoid any out of Circle transfer, then he/she can opt for All India Soft Tenure stations within Maharashtra Circle i.e. Gadchiroli and Sindhudurg for period of three years.

·        During last discussions by SNEA MH with CGMT MH has conveyed that there is acute shortage in Goa and anyone who will opt and posted at Goa will be excluded from the long stay transfers out of Maharashtra Circle. This is as per discussions and no written orders are issued. 

·        All Executives are aware about their stay and approximate position in the long stay list and hence one has to plan accordingly either by opting to Choice Circle/SSA either at All India tenure station or nearby choice Circle and such advance planning and action will avoid inconvenience due to transfers at odd places and odd times.

·        The data updating is to be completed latest by 31/03/2020 and hence all Executives are appealed to check their ERP data for correctness and also make advance planning.

The details are as follows.

·        Request Transfers from SSAs having excess Executives to SSA having shortage of Executives:  CGMT MH informed that such 2-3 individual cases were considered on recommendation of vertical heads in Circle Office Mumbai. We informed that it is not correct and everybody cannot approach vertical heads and hence there is need of consideration of transfers uniformly for all. CGMT MH informed that very shortly, the Staffing Norms are expected from BSNL Corporate Office and thereafter all request transfers can be decided. We have shared that there are certain request transfers submitted by executives working in SSAs having excess Executives to SSA having shortage of Executives as per the present norms and same may be given consideration on basis of present method of calculation of Excess/Shortage in particular SSA and other request can be decided later. It was agreed by CGMT MH and assured to given consideration to all such own cost request transfers at the earliest. If Executives from SSAs having excess Strength and interested to work in SSAs having shortage of Executives may submit their request by email to agmstaffmh2018@gmail.com at the earliest as chances of consideration of such Requests within short period are more.

·        Rearrangement of Executives within SSAs/Circle Office: We have informed that there is uneven distribution of Executives even in same SSAs, Circle Office and nothing has been done for equal sharing of workload. CGMT MH informed that he is waiting for finalization of staffing norms by BSNL Corporate office. It will not be fare if any rearrangements are issued before issuing any staffing norms. He further infoirmed that Staffing norms are expected within week or fortnight and hence his office will decide this issue as per the staffing norms.   

·        Uniform Policy for Look After Arrangements for all cadres and all wings: We have informed CGMT MH about disparities created by Staff section/Electrical wing  in issuing Looking After arrangements and how there is lot of difference between  Looking arrangements issued by Staff section and Electrical wing. We informed him that certain officers are promoted in next to nest higher post in unofficial double Looking After arrangements and other side, no post is filled in many wings and cadres where posts are vacant. We categorically informed that there are many post of SDEs/AOs, DEs/CAOs and DGMs are vacant but nothing has been done in uniform policy for giving higher responsibility. CGMT MH assured to review the matter and issue the Looking After arrangements uniformly for all cadres and wings to meet shortages if any and for optimum utilization of existing manpower.

2.     Land Monetization and generation of revenue for BSNL:  At the beginning of discussions, Director HR informed the efforts being taken by Government of India, DoT, and BSNL management for revival of BSNL. He elaborated the process of land monetization initiated by BSNL and about 14 land parcels are identified for sale by BSNL. He added that in this list, two properties of Maharashtra Circle i.e. at Telecom Factory Chembur Mumbai and property at Borivali Mumbai. BSNL is expected to generate revenue from land monetization at the rate of Rs 1000 Crore per month and total revenue expected from land monetization is about 26000 Crore and current liabilities of BSNL are about 24000 Crs. He added that land monetization would be done through DEEPAM portal wherein the interested Government Organizations and PSUs will be allowed to purchase these assets of BSNL. Already there are many requests from different such organizations and many have shown interest in these properties as these are at Prime locations. Government has assured that entire money received under land monetization will be used only for BSNL and even single rupees will not be taken by Government. Government will neither directly support financially and nor it will take any money from BSNL and BSNL has to come up with financial viability. Director HR was firm on the success of land monetization process and getting financial support for BSNL.

3.     Fear in Minds of VRS Opted Executives about clearance of their dues with BSNL:  We have shared the fear in the minds of VRS optees of BSNL about getting their dues from BSNL in present scenario. The salaries of all are not paid for period of more than two months and everybody is under fear and uncertain about getting their dues from BSNL. Director HR informed that there is no need of any fear on part of VRS optees and they should be firmly assured that their all dues will be paid in time bound manner and he is personally monitoring these activities of clearing dues of VRS Optees. He firmly assured that the GPF Settlement of all the VRS Optees will be done by 27/02/2020, the leave encashment will be cleared before mid of March 2020, the installment of Ex-gratia will be surely paid by 31st March 2020, second installment will also be paid as decided and no need to worry about any payment from BSNL to VRS Optees.

4.     Future of BSNL: When asked about future of BSNL in present telecom scenario, Director HR was firm on bright future of BSNL and its successful revival and survival. He elaborated that the situation in Telecom sector is in favour of BSNL and we will have to respond it positively. He added that BSNL is successfully facing challenges in telecom sector. He informed that there is good support from the Government and though directly money is not given to BSNL, every support is extended for generation of revenue by BSNL. Director HR informed that there are issues with BSNL but Govt and BSNL management is firmly working on the issues. The changed scenario in Telecom market is in favour of BSNL and it is good to see that customer base of BSNL is increasing. He added that BSNL will get 4G spectrum shortly and it will be game changer for BSNL. As on today, BSNL is ready with 4G equipment’s in many Circles and with allotment of 4G spectrum GSM services can be provided with higher quality and speed for data. He also added that BSNL FTTH is also in high demand and we all will have to grab this opportunity. He added that there is lot of scope for Enterprise Business and today he has finalized MoU with firm for renting out vacant space for charging stations of Electric Vehicles at BSNL campus and BSNL will continue to get rent continuously. There are many opportunities and business signed an agreement and if we all together work for getting more and more business, BSNL will definitely have bright future. He was optimistic that BSNL will continue to flourish in days to come by overcoming all the hurdles being faced now.

5.     Future of Executives in BSNL: We shared with him fear in minds of left out young executives in BSNL who are worried about their future in BSNL as many are facing hardship due to over delayed salaries and are under fear of transfers and additional workload. Director HR firmly assured that there is no need to worry by anybody about his or her future in BSNL. The changes in Telecom sector are working in favour of BSNL and hence we have to join hands together to increase customer base and adding more customers to BSNL. He added that efforts of the management and Government will continue for revival of BSNL and VRS was just one of step. There are many such actions being taken for revival of BSNL. He firmly assured that nobody should worry about their future in BSNL. He specifically appealed to all the young executives in BSNL that management will take care of future of all and future of JTO/JAO joined BSNL just before few months is also secured till his retirement and added that we have to adopt the change in work culture and accept the challenges in technology.      

6.     Payment of Salaries by end of every month: We have drawn attention of Director HR on delayed salaries and problems faced by all employees of BSNL. We also narrated the difficulties faced by young ones in case of delayed salary by more than two months. We requested him that we do not have issue if salary is delayed for one month permanently but at least delayed salary should get by end of every month. We can manage this one-month phase difference but uncertainty of payment of salary should be finished. Director HR informed that there are certain issues and agreed that salaries are delayed. But informed that this is temporary phase and situation will be normal after 2-3 months. He elaborated that BSNL has cleared the dues of LIC, GIS, Societies and to certain extent the vendor payments and hence salaries are delayed. He added that after VRS scenario, the burdon of Salaries with BSNL will be reduced to better extent and hence shortly salary of BSNL employees will be regularized.

7.     Maintenance of Services:  We have drawn his attention towards the situation in the field units wherein there is acute shortage of manpower to maintain the services and even minimum required resources are not available and situation needs some concrete support to field units. Director HR informed that he is well aware about the situation and steps are being taken to meet the exigencies aroused after VRS. The powers have been delegated to SSA/BA Heads and CGMs for finalization of different tenders required for Maintenance of services and all will have to act on it on Time Bound manner. There will be certain issues but in coming two months, we will be able to take total control of situation. He added that to meet emergent situation contact labors are being allotted to field units. The temporary advances will also be granted to executives in field units to meet day to day expenditure and every effort will be taken to resolve the filed issues.    

8.     Request for retention of Staff Quarters for VRS opted employees: We have brought to the notice of Director HR the demand of many of VRS opted executives for retention of staff quarters on different genuine grounds. Director HR informed that we have brought VRS for revival of BSNL and we are trying to get revenue from every are proposal for getting higher rents from prospective tenants and are ready to take staff quarters on rent in mass. We have informed him that these officers and officials have opted VRS and its scarifies for revival of BSNL and they should not be deprived of their genuine issues. Director HR added that as per existing policy, they are allowed to continue in same Staff quarters till eight months and thereafter they can apply for same but the rent applied will be of market rate. We requested to have middle way because the Market rate will not be affordable to VRS Optees and there should be proposal from management to have rates between existing rates and the market rates so that purpose of both the parties in taken care. Director HR informed any such proposal may be submitted to CGMT MH Circle and assured that his office will take lenient view to some extent but we should not forget out main purpose of generating revenue for BSNL.

9.     Allotment of BSNL Land for Housing Societies of BSNL Employees: We requested Director HR for grant of BSNL land to Co-operative Housing Societies of BSNL employees as being done for land monetization. We have narrated him that due to non-utilization of land available with BSNL, many of the properties are being taken over by state Government and in such situation allotment of land with reasonable cost to Co-Operative Housing Societies of BSNL; employs will generate revenue for BSNL as well as BSNL employees will get their own home and can leave together. Director HR informed that it might not be possible for commercial land, as matter of use of land will not serve purpose but assured that such proposals for residential land can be given consideration at Market rates. He suggested submitting any such proposal and it will be given consideration if it is permissible and approved by Government. 

10.            Grant of Five Increments to JTOs/JAOs: We have drawn attention of Director HR on the grievances of young executives due to non-approval of Standard pays scale and non-grant of five increments in absence of Standard pays scale. Director HR responded that this issue is taken by SNEA leadership at Delhi and we are discussing on it and assured for getting some positive results out of these discussions.

11.            Membership of Associations and position of SNEA:  During discussions it was seen that Director HR was of the opinion that after VRS, the membership of SNEA has decreased and young executives are not with SNEA. We have elaborated him fact that out of 2200 executives left in Maharashtra Circle 1400 are paid members of SNEA and about all DS of SNEA are BSNL recruited young JTOs. We have shared with him actual data of membership as per subscription deduction and Director HR was surprised to see such strength of executives with BSNL. He added that some has informed him that after VRS SNEA membership has decreased and we have responded that there is decrease in membership of SNEA , but till SNEA continues to be with highest membership among all associations.

·        The Salary payment of all in BSNL is pending for January 2020 and by now salary of February 2020 also due. It is expected that Salary of January 2020 will be paid by BSNL in first week of March 2020. 

·        Now, only official Farewell due on 31/01/2020 is pending due to administrative lapses and lethargy in some of Districts including Circle office Mumbai in completing administrative procedure and formalities.

·        It is good to see that majority of issues of VRS opted Executives and Non-executives will be settled and we are hopeful that 50% of Ex-Garcia amount will be credited by end of March 2020. 

·        Henceforth, VRS Opted executives and non-executives will continue to get their pension monthly and hopefully their wait for salary while in BSNL will be stopped once for all, as chances of getting regular pension from Government of India will be more regular than Salary in BSNL.

20 FEB 20:   Congratulation!!! DGM Pers SM BSNL Corporate Office issued long awaited DE to DGM Adhoc promotions orders for 195 executives.   Letter   <<<>>>     

·        This is first promotion order after VRS 2019 wherein 195 DEs are promoted as DGMs.

·        Many of these promoted Officers have not opted for VRS 2019 even though eligible and hence got chance to become DGM Adhoc.

·        In this order about all officers from Maharashtra Circle are retained in MH Circle and additionally three new DGMs from MP Circle are posted to Maharashtra Circle.

·        It will help in filling many of SSA Head post which are vacant or managed through Local looking after arrangements and very junior and unwilling officers are compelled to work as SSA Head that to be in present very difficult situation after VRS 2019. 

·        When everything on HR platform is negative in BSNL, this order even on Adhoc basis will give some hopes to left out officers that there are till hopes for promotions in BSNL.

·        There are thousands of post of SDEs and DE are vacant in BSNL, but management has not acted on it for years together for whatever may be reason and many officers have opted for VRS due to poor HR approach by BSNL management on promotional front.

·        It is unfortunate that hundreds of Executives eligible for DGM promotions have opted for VRS and immediately after 19 day of their VRS, the promotion orders have been issued wherein name of these officers are naturally missing.

·        Many such affected officers have personally shared their views and blamed management for delaying these promotions for years together on different reasons.

·        Some of them have expressed as its failure of associations also and SNEA MH agrees and respects the sentiments expressed by these affected members.

·        But something is better than nothing and let us think positive with hopes that very shortly BSNL management will take initiatives for filling all vacant post of SDFE/AO, DE/CAO in BSNL by stopping Look After arrangements.

·       SNEA MH congratulates all the officers promoted as DGM Adhoc and wish them grand success in their new promotional assignment as DGM.

In our last meeting CGMT MH has informed that he has updated SSA Heads personally about the authorization of manpower, but none of SSA Head as taken such services and works have come to stand still in about all SSAs.

·        Now official allotment is issued, but till there seems to be confusion as many of SSAs do not have valid and operational tenders for EOIs.

·        This allotment is decided by special committee headed by PGM CFA Mumbai, GM Fin Mumbai and GM HR/Admn Mumbai in consultation with SSA/BA Heads.

·        We have discussed this issue with concerned officers and it has been agreed that in such cases of extreme difficulties, the required manpower can be engaged temporarily through Temporary Advances and if advances are applied with proper justification it will be sanctioned with priority.

·        As on today, the OFC Failure in major reason affecting the Telecom services in Maharashtra Circle and main reason is frequent failure of OFCs due to road widening activities and repeated faults thereof.
