A meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction (Institutional Mechanism) was held on 10.01.2019. Details of the meeting are mentioned in the AUAB circular, which is also uploaded on CHQ website. Com.P. Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU & Convenor, Com. Chandeshwar Singh, GS, NFTE & Chairman, Com. K. Sebastin, GS, SNEA and Com.Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, represented the AUAB. Shri R.K. Khandelwal, Joint Secretary (Admn.) and Shri S.K. Jain, DDG (Estt.), attended from the DoT side. Overall, it is a useless meeting. The DoT officers were not able to give any useful information with regards to the implementation of the assurances given by the Hon’ble Minister, in the meeting held on 03.12.2018. Further, they are having totally a negative attitude towards the demands of the AUAB. The meeting ended without any fruitful outcome. It may be recollected that the AUAB strongly demanded that this Committee should be presided over by the Additional Secretary, which was not accepted by the DoT.
