TOA BSNL (BMS) STRONGLY IN FAVOUR of promotion of SDE's from list no 8. Sh Anil. K. Tiwari GS, Sh. Sushil Ji, Dy GS, Sh. R.C Pandey Ji GS BTEUBSNL and others met Dir (HR) and other officers regarding promotion from list no 8 and implementation of Pay scale of 22820 . BSNL Management response is positive .TOA BSNL humbly submitted before the Management that there are around 2000 DOT recruited as JTO (Junior Telecom Officer ) joined in BSNL from DOT with the hope for better promotion avenues but these executives are frustrated a lot due to non promotion from last 14 years . The JTOs promoted as SDE in the year of 2004 from list no 8 and completing 14 year service as SDE/DM are still waiting for their next promotion to the STS cadre DE/AGM and are retiring without getting their promotions. BSNL Management has already proposed promotion of executives as AGM after completion of 12 years service as SDE. As all the executives in list no 8 has completed more than 12 years of service. Most of executives are already performing duties of higher responsibilities .So, it is requested to please upgrade the posts and issue promotion orders from SDE’s to DE’s from list no 8. All most all officers’ already drawing pay and perk against such promoted post and no Financial burden incurred on BSNL exchequer with these promotions. It will also reduce court cases as well as motivated the executives and subsequently enhanced the efficiency of the official. Our Association also pursue with concern executives to withdraw the court case in this regard. We further requested to issue the said promotion orders of all executives from list no 8 before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy .
In reference to our earlier letter dated 06-02-2018 on subject matter , It is again humbly submitted that Telecom Officers Association (BSNL) is registered trade union of executives affiliated with ITEF and Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh in BSNL. It is further submitted that from the last so many years, different proposals / suggestions/Consultancy reports regarding revival of BSNL and to enable Public Sector Enterprises (PSEs) to rationalize their manpower is circulated in media but none of the proposal is informed to the employees of BSNL , real stake holders of the Company by the BSNL Management, recently two more proposals i.e. reduction in superannuation of age from 60 years to 58 years and VRS is in circulation. At present, out of 48000 executives, only 34000 are enrolled with Associations/ Unions. So approximately 30% are completely not in conformity with viewpoints raised by these Associations/Unions. So TOA BSNL has following view points on the subject matter:- i. That VRS is not offered to all employees so consent of all employees is not necessary. Only 20% employees may opt for VRS if any proposal submitted by Govt. or BSNL Management. ii. That for VRS proposal discussion, referendum route may be adopted with employees of age 50 years and above through ERP system ,which is already operational in BSNL. All employees have unique and secured HRMS number so this procedure is more reliable. iii. Rationalization of staff is need of the hour for survival and implementation of 3rd PRC. iv. 20% rationalization in staff strength of higher bracket paid employees suitably compensate the enhanced expenditure on salary bill after 3rd PRC. Recently NTPC has offered VRS proposal to its employee’s .TOA BSNL is in favour of consultation of VRS proposal as offered to NTPC or other proposals like additional increments for pending service in addition to 60 days pay for each remaining year of service with GOI or BSNL Management if it leads to survival and revival of BSNL in the long run. It is requested to please extents some valuable time for the deliberation of the above matter for the benefit of BSNL and its employees.
These Associations forced each and every promoted JTO's and SDE's to pay 3000 as protection money without any receipt . TOA BSNL will pursue it with Management and registration authority in this regards. for investigation . We hope that BSNL Management is not part of it.
