Some of the candidates who have direct degree qualification from Open University, without 10+2, were allowed to appear in the TTA LICE held on 07.06.2015 based on an interim order of the CAT, Hyderabad. While in it’s final order, the CAT dismissed the OA. The candidates appealed to the Hon’ble High Court of Hyderabad and the court directed to select those candidates as TTA if found otherwise eligible. The CGM, Telangana circle has written letter to the Corporate Office on 28.06.2018, seeking guidelines in this regard. Earlier the Management instructed the AP circle to file an SLP in the Supreme Court. But due to the efforts taken by BSNLEU, in taking up the issue with the Director (HR), Sr.GM(Estt.) and also taking up the issue in the forthcoming 37th meeting of the National Council, the Management has finally decided to withdraw the proposal of filing SLP. As a result, the qualified candidates will now be promoted to JE.
