2,700 candidates were selected in the 2016 DR JE recruitment. Among these candidates, many did not appear for document verification, or did not report for training after getting selected. The Corporate Office is in the process of filling up such unfilled vacancies. BSNLEU has also demanded to fill up the unfilled vacancies of Tamil Nadu circle without delay. In this connection, the Corporate Office has released a list of 257 DR JE candidates, who are to be appointed against the unfilled vacancies.
BSNLEU is continuously demanding that the Hon’ble CAT order in respect of granting 1st NEPP to the TSMs regularised after 01.10.2000. The Hon’ble CAT has directed that these employees should be granted 1st promotion under NEPP, on completion of 4 years. BSNLEU is continuously demanding that this order of the Hon’ble CAT should be implemented for all the TSMs regularised after 01.10.2000, and not only to the litigants. However, the implementation of this demand is being delayed, on the plea of ascertaining the financial implication. Corporate Office has once again sent reminder to the CGMs, calling for the inputs. Circle Secretaries are requested to take up the issue with their respective CGMs and to pressurise them to send the requisite inputs to the Corporate Office at the earliest.
