23.03.2015 : Kind attention representatives and members-stand of AIGETOA on major cadre issues

Some direct recruits recruited after 01.01.2007 provoked by false statement and assurance given by some other associations, are misguiding other young direct recruits in field. As some association has claimed that BSNL authorities are ready to extend E2 pay scale for post 2007 recruited executives not for others but due to oppose of AIGETOA same is not extended. Such statement is not only hypothetical but also non-practical and non-feasible. This is nothing but planned script of one GM who has always remain negative towards the issues of executives and same is being enacted by some association to divide and attract the young direct recruits for the purpose of referendum.

One other group is trying to divide the unity of DR by spreading that AIGETOA is opposing common LDCE with clubbing of all the vacancies and same group is trying to collect the money from the innocent young executives in the name of legal fight. Due to the effort of this association only, LDCE was notified with clubbing all the vacancy years but same could not happen due to legal hurdle created by one executives association. Now there is no chance of conducting LDCE with clubbing the vacancies. It is better to conduct separate LDCE with each vacancy year which is only fast way to extend the chance to each and every batch without having any legal hurdle. It doesn’t mean that AIGETOA is opposing conduction of single LDCE for all vacancy years.

It is highly needed to come out with stand of AIGETOA on major cadre issues so that all the direct recruits can take informed decision to join AIGETOA. If someone thinks that they are not satisfied with the stand of AIGETOA leadership they must not wait either they must try to change the present leadership of AIGETOA or they must explore the possibility with some other association or they can find some other ways to fight individually/making groups.

  • AIGETOA will fight as a matter of right for standard pay scale for executives starting from E2 for JTO/JAO, E3 for SDE/AO and so on. For pay parity between pre and post 2007 batches, AIGETOA can only try to convince the BSNL management amicably on the ground of moral loss of executives recruited after 01-01-2007 due to this disparity which is only possible when BSNL fails in recruiting MT above JTO/JAO.

  • AIGETOA will fight as a matter of right for time bound functional upgradation at least up to DE level. First time bound promotion must be in uniform span of four years. After DE level post BSNL must formulate the policy for promoting the internal executives for management succession plan based on qualification, performance and experience based on vacancies. There is no reason of recruiting external candidates as MT/DGM.

  • Till date time bound functional promotion is implemented in BSNL, AIGETOA will fight for early conduction of LDCE with separate exams for each vacancy year so that every batch can get fair chance of promotion and can be conducted without legal hurdle. Stand of AIGETOA is that senior batches must get every chance which is due to them for getting earlier promotion than junior batches.

  • AIGETOA will fight as a matter of right against the external recruitment with or without experience at any level above than JTO/JAO in Telecom Operation and Finance.

  • AIGETOA will fight as a matter of right for pensionary benefits to direct recruits executives w.e.f. Oct-2000. From Oct-2000 to 31-12-2006 contribution towards pension scheme must be the difference pay between E2 and E1A and from 01.01.2007 onwards it must be difference of 30% of Basic +DA and (EPF + Gratuity + Post retirement medical benefits)

  • AIGETOA will fight for other issues affecting our direct recruit’s executive in mass only on merit and as per the rules and policy. Association will not fight for individual and personal issues.

Those who are satisfied with the above stand of AIGETOA please participate in the campaigning of AIGETOA for pay, promotion and pension and send their representation latest by 31st March-2015. This will not only attract the attention of authorities but also help leadership of AIGETOA to decide next steps to move forward with this fight.

21.03.2015 : HEartfelt condolences

We are deeply saddened by the news of loss of Mrs Vijaya Laxmi. She was JTO of 2007 batch posted at Khadagpur SSA West Bengal Circle. She was the native of Andhra Pradesh. Being female employee and posted out of her native and on account of her critical problems, BSNL CO considered her request and issued deputation order two years back. This association has pursued several times with West Bengal Circle administration for her relieving as well as relieving of other JTOs but the West Bengal circle administration never bothered to listen to the grievances and did not relieve her. In a company where GM level officers of the SSA/circle decides the transfer and posting of JTO/SDE level officers on their own whims and fancies violating all the norms to the extent of disobedience of the orders issued by higher level, one lady officer has to wait till her death. This association is in the process of finding the facts of not relieving by West Bengal Circle despite issuance of orders by BSNL CO and not obeying to these order even after two years. May her soul rest in peace, we firmly believe that God will accept her with open arms for all the goods she has done while she was on this earth. We pray that God will grant enough strength to her friend, family and relatives needed to get through this moment in their life. Our most sincere condolences

21.03.2015 : One true and relevant story- every direct recruit must read

Almost one year back, one of my relatives who is owner of an civil contract firm called me and asked for suggesting the name of one candidate for the post of supervisor to supervise the work of nearly 20 employees working in his firm. He also told me the requirement for the post which is nothing but must have education at least 12th standard and must know some arithmetic calculations. Job profile of supervisor is to assign the job to employees working in firm and keep track on their work, maintain the account of expenditure and income, manage the material required for the work etc. As I know him and employees of his firm personally I just asked him that why he don’t promote one of his own employees to the post of supervisor as some of them already possess this qualification and other requirements. He justified his stand on following grounds:

  • First, all the employees already working in his firm were master of their work and seems satisfied with their current position as they are not crying for promotion.

  • Second, it was difficult to get the replacement of already working employees if he promote among them but it is easy to get from outside for the post of supervisor as it was difficult for him to train the employees for actual work on field while it was very easy for him to train for supervisory work.

Although I had tried him to convince otherwise but he remain stood on his stand. Finally I had suggested one person known to me and he got appointed as supervisor. After six months, I had received call from my relative that he had expelled the supervisor and promoted one existing employee. When I asked the reason he told that I was right. As supervisor did not know anything about the working of firm, requirement of material etc started ordering the existing employees which was hard to be obeyed by them. As some of the existing employees were equally qualified, having vast experience of the working in firm and remain loyal to the firm for year together, they could not digest the act of the owner to appoint supervisor from outside ignoring them. Slowly employees who were working by their own have stopped working and started complaining to the owner regarding the knowledge and behavior of supervisor. Work of the firm was getting badly affected and work environment became worst which had forced my relative (the firm owner) to change his decision. Now everything is ok…...

Few days before when we asked the then CMD that engineering graduate having 12 years of experience in any private company are eligible for DGM recruitment in BSNL then why engineering graduate having more than 12 years experience in BSNL itself are not eligible for DGM recruitment? It was shocking reply that engineering graduates in BSNL are not recruited to become DGM. Similarly many direct recruits get first chance to appear in LDCE-2012 for SDE (T) after passing more than 10 years, when we asked why BSNL has made LDCE paper with number of wrong question/answer then one of our senior manager replied that such questions were included deliberately to restrict the passing of candidates else who will work as JTO.

Friends just think if we the direct recruit’s executives are existing employees of the above firm (BSNL) and recruitment of external MT/DGM are our supervisor. Just think what will happen to our beloved company BSNL and work environment? Are we satisfied with our same job profile till our retirement? Shall we not cry for our promotion to the managerial cadre? Shall our BSNL board realize this fact?

Our BSNL board will realize this facts or not but we are surly not satisfied with our same job profile till our retirement. We will surely not allow the external candidates above us having similar qualification and no idea about BSNL working. We are surly not ready to be ordered by the external candidates having no idea about BSNL working. Last but not least, we will not wait to cry and complain after experiencing the behavior of external candidates.

So for response from the direct recruitment in submitting the representation as uploaded by association is not satisfactory. This association is receiving several calls that submitting representation to number of authorities are time taking and expensive but we believe that this is very less time taking and expensive if we realize the consequences of the issues. Association doesn’t have any other ways to show the concern (cry) of direct recruits for such critical issues and get it resolved. Although 20th March was given last date for submission of representations but considering the very poor response from direct recruits executives till date this association has decided to extend the date till 31st March-2015. All direct recruits executives are requested to submit their representations without bothering the cost and time. Your representation will not only show your concern about the issues and togetherness but also protect your legal rights for future. This togetherness will give us strength and confidence for fighting further on these critical issues. This association will analyze the total number of representation after 31st march-2015. If response remains still poor then this association will be forced to leave all these issues

19.03.2015 : our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter

It is really disappointing to see the U-turn of some of the executive associations who had been justifying years together with BSNL management that experience matters but now their stand is very diplomatic in justifying MT/DGM recruitment. On the justification of experience they have not been given only service weightage in EPP due to which absorbed executives get first time upgradation in 4 years while DR get in 6 years but also got en-block seniority over DR. They have vigorously pursued and achieved for relaxation of qualification in BSNLMSRR on pretext of experience due to which all the absorbed executives even having primary education are eligible for promotion to the post of DE and DGM. Few years back BSNL had rejected the proposal of Petorda committee (formed under direction of Honorable Prime Minister of India) to recruit some professional at the level of GM, CGM and above on the justification that this will disaster for the moral of ITS officers who will not like to work under any external candidates.

BSNL has every power to make recruitment at any level and this association is not at all against any recruitment at any level if it is meant for talent acquisition but not for any other reason. BSNL management is free to higher professionally qualified candidates from institute like IIM and experienced professionals from open market at higher level. This association not only believes but confident that direct recruit professionally qualified JTO and JAO having more than 3 to 12 years experience are best in the country to handle the responsibility of higher post in Telecom Operation and Finance. This is totally wrong justification being given by some executives associations and BSNL management that BSNL need to recruit professionally qualified external candidates in the name of MT/DGM to handle the responsibility of managerial post. BSNL has already recruited best talent of professionally qualified candidates in the name of JTO/JAO, the need is only to formulate contemporary career policy so that these qualified candidates can be groomed and promoted timely to the managerial post.

  • We are not ready to accept such an ill-treatment that one candidates having 12 years of experience in any private company are talented enough to be appointed as DGM in BSNL but more qualified executives of BSNL having more than 12 years of experience in BSNL itself are not talented to handle the responsibility of DGM post.

  • We are not ready accept that one fresh candidate recruited as MT at E3 is talented enough to be groomed to handle the responsibility of managerial post in BSNL but professionally qualified executives of BSNL already working at E3 and above are not talented to be groomed to handle the responsibility of managerial post in BSNL.

  • So for we have worked under non-technical and non-professional employees in the name of experience but now after getting experience in BSNL and having all the professional qualification we are not ready to work under fresh candidates.

  • We are not ready to accept that BSNL is having money to extend pay revision benefits to more than 2.5 lakhs employees of BSNL but not having money to provide same benefits by extending E2 and pay parity to the professionally qualified executives recruited on or after 01-01-2007.

  • We are not ready to accept that BSNL upgraded the pay (pre-revised 6500 to 7450) of JTO working on deputation in BSNL from DOT but degrading the pay (E1A TO E1) of JTO recruited by BSNL itself after pay revision.

  • We are not ready to accept that all the absorbed employees including our board of directors need handsome pensionary benefit for survival of their retired life but direct recruits executives of BSNL are forced to retire without any pensionary benefits. We are also not ready to accept that BSNL is having money to extend perks and allowances to all the 2.5 lakhs absorbed employees and ITS officers working on deputation but not having money to provide superannuation benefit to direct recruit employees of BSNL.

It is a humble appeal of AIGETOA to All the DR executives of BSNL please don’t be lured and wait anymore; no other association will help you out. It is disappointing to see that some direct recruits executives joining other association who are working against our pay, promotion and pension. Government has already directed BSNL to formulate complete and comprehensive HR policy, finalization of standard pay scale and superannuation benefit is in advance stage. This is high time to act together for all the direct recruits. Please send representation as uploaded on front page of this association. This is only way to show our protest in mass. If we all 12000 direct recruit will send this representation this will definitely attract the attention of authorities and give them sufficient base to intervene in policy decision in BSNL on HR issues.

Just remember the great quote “our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”. “in the end we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends”:

19.03.2015 : Kind attention young DR-JTOs of year 2007 onwards

LDCE for SDE (T) is only possible with separate exam for each vacancy year. Some group who are habitual of luring money by playing the sentiments of the innocents are trying to convince DR-JTOs of year 2007 onwards to challenge the decision of Honorable Shimla High Court and started collecting money. There is no any merit in challenging this decision; merely filing appeal in higher court will not give any fruitful results. It is only the way to lure money. Even if, this decision is challenged in higher court it will take more than 10 years to receive final decision. There is only solution to conduct the LDCE with year wise vacancy without any hurdle which can enable all batches to get chance of appearing in the LDCE within one year or even before.

This association appeals to all the DR executives, don’t waste your time and money in running pillar to post. Remain united with single platform, have faith on top leadership and extend your unconditional support and commitment on association call. This is only way to resolve very critical issues in respect of pay promotion and pension. All must submit the representations as displayed on website as early as possible.

16.03.2015 : Save My Career in BSNL : Fight For Pay, Promotion & Pension

Big NO… So Let us all start this fight together and tell BSNL Management that we are qualified executives and ready to perish in the "Fight of Self Respect, Dignity & Justice". Our recruitment is already as MT and we are the successor of BSNL Management. We must be given our dues in terms of Pay, Promotion & Pension. There is no space for another direct recruitment above us.

    13.03.2015 : Congratulations to one and all- Hon’ble Madras High Court dismissed the appeal of BSNL on EPF contribution for training period.

    Today the Hon’ble Madras High Court has dismissed BSNL’s Appeal filed against the order of Single Bench in matter of EPF contribution on Stipend paid during Pre-induction training of all direct recruits.

    This association has been trying to convince BSNL authorities regarding contribution of EPF for pre-appointment training since year-2005 but same is not considered. Finally this association through it’s representatives had filed the case in EPFO where order was delivered in favor of us. But some vested interest sitting in corporate office on deputation and enjoying various illegal benefits instead of implementing said order, preferred to appeal in Hon’ble High Court of Madras just to put loss to direct recruits. Single bench of Hon’ble High Court Madras also delivered judgment in favor of us but said order was not implemented. During the agitation of this association in Aug-2013, Director (HR) clearly directed GM (Establishment) to implement the said order but GM (Establishment) instead of implementing has directed to pursue the case in double bench of Hon’ble Madras High Court. This association has warned GM (Establishment) regarding huge penalty to be imposed by EPFO with every passing day but he claimed himself to be right for not implementing the said order. Finally this association has decided to defend the case in Hon,ble Madras High Court through one of the applicant Sh Surinder Mahar (Ex-AGS and chairman of legal committee of this association). Now Hon’ble Madras High court has out rightly rejected the appeal of BSNL. As per this order, BSNL will have to pay EPF contribution (i.e. employee's contribution as well as employer’s contribution) along with interest on the amount of stipend paid during pre appointment training. This order is applicable to all direct recruit employees. All the direct recruits will be benefited by about 25-30 thousands. The same GM is handling the case of pay scale and superannuation issue and working on same mentality to put loss to direct recruits. BSNL must not only make EPF contribution along with interest but also must fix the responsibility to this GM and recovery must be made from his personal account. BSNL must also scrutinize such officers posted on deputation but working against the interest of BSNL and it’s employees. All such officers must be immediately sent back to their parent department. This association will ensure that personal responsibility must be fixed to the responsible authority in this case, if need arise this association will file separate case for fixing personal responsibility so that no such vested interest can dare to work against the interest of the company and it’s employees.

    This association is extremely thankful to Sh. Surinder Mahar, AO Kurukshetra for strongly pursuing this case. Order copy expected soon.

    28.02.2015 : CEC of AIGETOA, participation in parliament march and joint meeting with AIBSNLEA REGARDING

    Central Executives Committee meeting of AIGETOA along with CWC members and Circle Representatives was held on 23rd and 24th Feb-2015 at New Delhi wherein detail discussion on the points mentioned in agenda of the notice was taken place. After having inputs from circles and discussion, this association has passed resolution on various issues. Glimpses of the meeting and detail of the resolution will be displayed on website shortly.

    All the CHQ and Circle Representatives along with some members were participated in the Parliament March organized by forum on 25th Feb-2015 at New Delhi. Followed by Parliament march, joint meeting of CHQ/Circle representatives of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA was held on 25th Feb-2015 at New Delhi and detail discussion was held on various HR issues and ways to resolve the issues jointly.

    At the end of the joint meeting felicitation program of Honorable CMD BSNL was held. Despite of very tight schedule in view of board meeting on 26th Feb-2015 our beloved CMD has spared his precious time. After felicitation program of CMD, GS AIGETOA, President AIGETOA and GS AIBSNLEA have put forth the critical HR issues like Pay scale and Pay loss to young executives, Superannuation benefits to direct recruits, Career aspects of executives in BSNL, No outside recruitment in the name of MT/DGM etc and requested CMD to take immediate call for the resolution of these critical issues. GS AIGETOA in his short but convincing speech had very nicely presented the core issues (Pay scale and Pay loss, superannuation and career aspects of executives). Both the association fully assured CMD for unconditional support to his every endeavour towards revival of BSNL. CMD BSNL in his address motivated executives by saying that still BSNL has breathing healthy and we all together will definitely turnaround it to make long survival. He also mentioned that once BSNL will start earning profit all the HR issues will automatically get resolved but it does not mean that every issue will remain pending on pretext of loss in account book of BSNL. He assured us to sit together with associations and start resolving issues on merit which will definitely motivate executives towards performance. This association will shortly upload more detail on this but members may visit AIBSNLEA CHQ website for knowing the detail of the program.

    ________________________________________________________________

    13.02.2015 : UPDATE on ldce 2015

    BSNL CO has issued orders for conducting the LDCE examination 2015 only for vacancy year 2010-11. The order from the honorable Shimla high court was already there to hold separate exams for every vacancy years but BSNL management is not able to hold LDCE every year due to the reason best known to them. To finish the backlog and regularize the exam every years this association has tried it’s level best to conduct single exam for all the backlog vacancy year but due to contempt petition raised by some associations BSNL management could not go ahead. This association tried its level best to convince the authorities to hold the exam for all eligible candidates. However legal opinion was different and based on that recruitment cell has issued orders as directed by Hon'ble Guwahati Court. GM recruitment has informed that he will make arrangement for conducting the LDCE exam for remaining vacancy years in every three months but this is possible only when LDCE aspirant will keep patience and not create further hurdle

    This association advises members of this association to please don’t fall on trap of some group who is very much active to collect money in the name of court case for making eligible. Any such move will be suicidal. The decision of recruitment cell to conduct the examination for 2010-2011 and subsequent exams in every three months is purely on merit and having no legal violation. LDCE aspirant who are not eligible for this exam must keep patience and wait for their turn. They must keep their preparation on for next exam.

    ADVISORY IN REGARD to the LDCE 2015

    Members and all LDCE aspirants are requested not to pay heed to the gossip mongers and the negative elements who are spreading false rumors about the exam. Association is closely monitoring the situation and any change in scenario will definitely be informed. Till that time, they should concentrate on preparations for the exam and not fall into the trap of the gossip mongers.

    13.02.2015 : details of Forum meeting with CMD and other Directors of BSNL on 09.02.2015

    In response to the strike notice served by the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations, the CMD BSNL invited the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations for discussion on 9th February 2015, which was held in the Board Room of BSNL Corporate Office. Shri Anupam Srivastava, CMD BSNL, A.N.Rai, Director (EB and HR), N.K.Gupta, Director (CFA and CM), Sujata Ray, ED (Finance), Shameem Akhtar, Sr.GM (SR) and other officers participated from the Management. The Forum was represented by Coms. C.Singh, Chairman, V.A.N. Namboodiri, Convener and General Secretaries of the affiliated Unions/Associations. GS Sh R P Shahu and AGS Sh Amit Roy have also participated from AIGETOA side. The meeting started at about 1500 hours and continued up to about 1900 hours.

    All the issues mentioned in strike notice of Forum were discussed in length. CMD and other directors were quite receptive towards issues. As most of the issues pertain to DOT/GoI hence resolution was not possible at this platform yet CMD assured that he will do the best at his level for revival of BSNL and wish to work together with the unions/associations. He also mentioned that meeting with unions and associations leaders will be held every month formally/informally to end the communication gap. Although almost all the issues pertain to DOT/GoI but superannuation benefits to direct recruits pertain to BSNL only hence GS AIGETOA elaborated this issue in detail how BSNL is ignorant for this very critical and social security issue of direct recruits despite clear provision in Rule-37A of CCS pension rule since formation of BSNL. BSNL has extended lower pay scale than MTNL to accommodate pension benefit but yet not devised any pension scheme to BSNL recruited employees. Our, this stand supported by every documents was also supported by other representatives of forum. Although ED (Finance) was fully agreed with the justification of 30% superannuation benefits in totality but she mentioned about financial constraints of BSNL. CMD clearly stated that if this is genuine and supported by documents then BSNL must not stop this social security benefits on account of financial constraints. CMD instructed ED (Finance) to go through the documents submitted by the association and take a call on merit.

    Followed by the said meeting, on next day GS and AGS met ED (Finance) and submitted complete documents and also explained the issue in detail. ED finance appreciated our concern and assure that she will go on merit and shortly this issue will come to the resolution. These associations also came to know that some negative forces who are not even the member of committee now are trying their best to create hurdle in the way of resolution but this association is committed enough to overcome every such hurdle on the way of social security and retired life.

    President Sh Ravishi Verma, GS Sh R P Shahu, AGS Sh Amit Roy along with GS and Finance Secretary AIBSNLEA met Director (HR) and discussed in length about the victimization of General Secretary in MP Circle as mentioned in the Dharna Notice. Director (HR) spokes to CGM MP, GM (Pers) and GM (SR) on this issue and directed for resolution but satisfactory outcome is yet to come. This association will be meeting CMD on this issue and demand one committee at BSNL CO on the issue of victimization of GS for unbiased resolution. Although this association does not at all want to hold dharna as proposed from 23rd FEB-2015 but we must be ready if no other options are available.

    04.02.2015 : Proposed Dharna of AIGETOA from 23rd Feb-2015 at BSNL CO New Delhi-Reg.

    All representatives and members of this association is well aware of the facts that our apex leader i.e. General Secretary of this association has been victimized at various front while fighting for the issues of members. This association has already conducted country wide lunch hour demonstration against this victimization on 20th Jan-2015 which was a grand success.

    This association not at all want to held Dharna at BSNL CO New Delhi as proposed from 23rd Feb-15 specially after taking charge of our new CMD. We believe that our new CMD will go through the issues mentioned under notice and act on merit much before the proposed date of Dharna. AIGETOA MP is also continuously pursuing with MP Circle administration for amicable resolution. The delegation from AIGETOA CHQ will also meet personally to our new CMD and Director (HR) in the second week of Feb-15 to explain the issues in detail and seek unbiased action on the issues.

    Although this association is quite hopeful that issues will be resolved amicably and there is no question of holding Dharna for such issues, yet we must not take any chance as this is the matter of protection of our leaders fighting for genuine cause keeping their entire thing on risk and also the matter to keep survival of our representation.

    Keeping above things in mind, core committee of AIGETOA CHQ has decided to notify the already due meeting of Central Executives Committee, CWC and Circle Representatives on 23rd and 24th Feb-2015 at New Delhi. At the worst, if issues are not resolved amicably, this association will hold Dharna at BSNL CO from 23rd Feb-2015 and if issues are resolved as per our expectation this association will hold meeting on 23rd and 24th Feb-2015 and also participate parliament march of the Forum on 25th Feb-2015. There is joint meeting of AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA CHQ and Circle representatives on second half of 25th Feb-2015 just after the parliament march is over.

    Boarding and lodging arrangement of CHQ and Circle Representatives are already done at Andhra Association Building 24-25, Lodhi Institutional Area, nearby Sai Baba temple, New Delhi-110003 from morning of 23rd Feb-2015 to night of 25th Feb-2015.

    This association request the circle representatives (CS, CP, CFS), CWC and CHQ representative to book their tickets for Delhi so that they can reach by morning of 23rd Feb-2015 and must not book the return ticket before late night of 25th Feb-2015. Circle quota of fund will be handed over in this meeting subjected to production of audit report and latest account statement. Other agenda points may be sent to CHQ on email- chqaigetoa@gmail.com by 7th Feb-2015 so that same can be accommodated in the notice to be issued for meeting.
