Payment of dues by telecom companies - Supreme Court pulls up the government for not implementing it’s judgement dated 24.10.2019..

The Supreme Court has pulled up the government of India for not implementing it’s order dated 24.10.2019 on payment of dues by the telecom companies. In it’s order dated 24.10.2019, the Supreme Court laid down the definition for the Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR). According to this order, the telecom companies should pay licence fee, spectrum charges, etc., calculated on their total income, and not only on income from core business. According to this order of the Supreme Court, Vodafone Idea has to pay Rs.53,000 crore and Airtel has to pay Rs.35,000 crore. As per the Supreme Court order, the dues from the telecom companies should be paid within 3 months. However, even 4 months after this judgement, the private companies have not paid even a single naya paisa. It has also come to the light that the government has sent an advisory to the concerned officers stating that “no coercive action should be taken until further orders, to collect the dues from telecom companies.” The Supreme Court severely criticised the government for issuing such an advisory.

Which is the government service provider? – It is Mukesh Ambani’s Jio, not BSNL..

Narendra Modi government has sanctioned 54 mobile towers for the uncovered rural areas of Ladakh. Money will be paid from the USO Fund. But, the towers will be installed not by BSNL, but by Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio. This is how the Modi government is promoting Reliance Jio, while giving only 'lip-service' to BSNL.  It is also important to note that, the same Modi government has blocked BSNL's 4G tender, thus stopping BSNL from rolling out it's 4G service. Everybody think that BSNL is the government service provider. Now, everyone has understand that, Reliance Jio is the government service provider.

BSNLEU’s letter, addressed to the CMD BSNL, on non-payment of wages and retrenchment of contract workers, receives very good coverage in the national media..

The letter written by BSNLEU, to the CMD BSNL, has received very good coverage in the national media. Important dailies like the Economic Times, ET Telecom, etc., have published in their e-paper,  good articles about the pathetic condition of the contract workers who are being ruthlessly retrenched by the BSNL Management. The Union's accusation that the non-launching of 4G service by BSNL is the main weakness in increasing the revenues of the Company has been received very good focus in the media.  They have also highlighted that the continuation of contract workers in BSNL has become all the more important, in the wake of the retirement of 79,000 employees under VRS. We expect that the BSNL Management would at least open it's eyes to the reality and would approach the issues of the contract workers with a proper understanding.

Relaxation for JTO LICE - Some clarifications.

Some DR JE comrades have expressed their unhappiness that, BSNLEU's demand for the relaxation for the JTO LICE, held on 26.05.2019, is not settled. Hence, BSNLEU wishes to make certain points clear. 

 

(i)    Full marks for questions with multiple right answers.

BSNLEU rightly demanded that, full marks should be granted to the questions with multiple correct answers. BSNLEU demanded that full mark should be granted to a candidate, who had given the correct answer. However, the review of the results was done based on the old SOP, according to which questions with multiple correct answers will be removed.  The persistent demand of BSNLEU was finally accepted in the Formal Meeting held with the Director (HR) on 28.08.2020.  However, it was told by the Director (HR) that the amended SOP, i.e., giving full marks to the questions with multiple correct answers, will be made applicable only for the future examinations. Implementing the amended SOP retrospectively for the exam held on 26.05.2019, will only lead to court cases. It is true that some one may go to court which will create unnecessary complications. Hence, the decision of the Director(HR) is accepted by BSNLEU. Certainly, the union has succeeded on this demand, since full marks will be given to the questions with multiple correct answers for the future examinations.

 

(ii)   Granting of relaxation.

BSNLEU has been demanding that, Management should grant relaxation to the failed candidates, if the demand for granting full marks to the multiple correct answers is not accepted. BSNLEU cited that Management has granted grace marks for the JE LICE held in 2018. For this, the Director (HR) replied that the pass percentage of the JE LICE held in 2018 is only 15%, whereas the pass percentage of the JTO LICE held on 26.05.2019 is around 35%. Management also told that, relaxation has not been given to some other LICEs, where the pass percentage is less than 35%. Hence, the Director (HR) expressed his inability to grant relaxation.

 

(iii)   Holding the next JTO LICE.

All are aware that BSNLEU had been trying it’s best to get either full marks for the questions with multiple correct answers or relaxation. When both could not be settled, despite our best efforts, then it is wise to demand to hold the next JTO LICE immediately. It is already one year and three months since the last JTO LICE was held. A lot of comrades are anxiously  waiting for the next JTO LICE. Under such circumstances, it is not at all advisable to drag on with the demands which are not being accepted by the Management and thereby delaying the JTO LICE. All comrades should realise that, BSNLEU tried sincerely to settle the demand. When we realise that Management is not going to accept the demand, then the best choice will be holding the next JTO LICE immediately.  Director (HR) has assured that he would personally take efforts for holding the next JTO LICE at the earliest. BSNLEU will take all out efforts to hold the next JTO LICE without further delay.
