The JTO LICE, JAO LICE, JE LICE and TT LICE have not been held, on regular basis, during the past so many years. Now, as per VRS orders, all the 79,000 posts of the VRS retirees are going to be abolished w.e.f. 01.02.2020. This will jeopardise the post-based promotions of the Non-Executives in a big way. Hence, BSNLEU has written to the CMD BSNL demanding that the Management should immediately take steps to hold the JTO LICE, JAO LICE, JE LICE and TT LICE, based on the vacancies existed as on 31.01.2020.

It is already 04th of November and disbursement of October, 2019, salary is not made. It seems Management is complacent that, the salary for September, 2019, was disbursed only two weeks back and there is no urgency to disburse the October salary immediately. Repeated media reports that, salary disbursement of BSNL employees is not taking place on time, is damaging the image of BSNL and is sending a wrong message to the market. BSNLEU has written to the CMD BSNL demanding immediate disbursement of salary for the month of October, 2019.

The Corporate Office has issued letter for the merger of the non-territorial project and maintenance circles. Accordingly, STP and STR circles are merged and it is named as CGM Core Network Tx-South. When the well established CGM offices of both STR and STP are functioning in Chennai for many decades, surprisingly the head quarters of CGM Core Network Tx-South is shifted to Bengaluru. After merger, the head quarters of CGM Core Network Tx-East, CGM Core Network Tx-West and CGM Core Network Tx-North are retained in the existing places, viz., Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi, respectively. However, the head quarters of CGM Core Network Tx-South alone is shifted to Bengaluru.

BSNLEU has taken up this issue with Corporate Office, demanding it’s intervention for the implementation of 200 point roster in the JE LICE to be conducted in UP (East) circle.
अक्टूबर 2019 के वेतन का भुगतान शीघ्र करें- BSNLEU ने CMD BSNL को लिखा....
आज 4 नवंबर हो चुकी है और अक्टूबर 2019 का वेतन भुगतान अभी तक नही हुआ है। ऐसा प्रतीत होता है कि मैनेजमेंट यह मान कर चल रहा है कि सितंबर 2019 के वेतन का भुगतान अभी दो सप्ताह पूर्व ही तो हुआ है, ऐसे में अक्टूबर के वेतन के त्वरित भुगतान की जरूरत ही क्या है। मीडिया में वेतन भुगतान समय पर नही होने को ले कर लगातार आ रही खबरें BSNL की छवि धूमिल कर रही है और मार्किट में भी अच्छे संकेत नही जा रहे हैं। BSNLEU ने माह अक्टूबर 2019 के वेतन के त्वरित भुगतान की मांग करते हुए CMD BSNL को पत्र लिखा है।
