Resolution adopted by the 9th All India Conference of BSNLEU on 3rd Pay Revision of BSNL employees.

The 9th All India Conference of BSNLEU, presently in session at Mysuru, has demanded the government to settle the 3rd Pay Revision with 15% fitment, to BSNL employees. The Conference thoroughly discussed the issue and severely criticised the government for denying the 3rd Pay Revision to BSNL employees, on the plea that BSNL is loss making. The Conference has pointed out that how the government is supporting the predatory pricings of Reliance Jio, which has led to the present crisis in the telecom industry. Further, the conference has also pointed out how the government is giving bail-out packages to the private telecom companies while denying justified wage revision to BSNL employees. The Conference has called upon the circle and district unions to keep the employees fully mobilised for struggle, if the 3rd Pay Revision is not settled amicably within a reasonable time. Com. C. Santhosh, circle secretary, Kerala, proposed the resolution and Com. D.K. Bakutra, circle secretary, Gujarat, seconded it.

Finance Ministry rejects BSNL's Revival Package.

The Union Ministry of Finance rejected the much-anticipated package to revamp the public sector telecommunications company Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL). The package was formed by the cabinet subcommittee headed by Minister for Home Affairs Amit Shah. It was rejected by the finance ministry pointing out that no funds can be allocated for the same.
The ministry also directed to submit a new package. The direction came after the then Cabinet Secretary Nripendra Misra completed the procedures to table the package before the cabinet and handed it over to the Ministry of Finance. Later, Nripendra Misra resigned from service.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also was part of the committee which finalised the package. However, it was rejected when it was handed over to the Finance Ministry.
The package gave importance to the voluntary retirement scheme based on the evaluation that there is excess of staff in the company. But the finance ministry made it clear that it cannot grant funds for the scheme.
Another recommendation was to allot fund from the government to provide 4G spectrum for BSNL. However, the ministry opposed this also and suggested that the BSNL should find the funds for the same.

Hindi translation of "The GDP growth of India tumbles further – at 4.5%, it is the lowest in the 6 ½ years."

भारत की जीडीपी वृद्धि दर में और गिरावट-  4.5% के साथ, विगत 6.5 वर्षों में अपने न्यूनतम पर...

भारत आर्थिक संकट की गिरफ्त में होने से इसकी जीडीपी में गिरावट जारी है। जुलाई-सितंबर की तिमाही में जीडीपी वृद्धि दर गिर कर 4.5% रह गई है। मार्च, 2013 के बाद, यानी विगत 6.5 वर्षों में, जीडीपी की यह वृद्धि दर न्यूनतम है। ज्ञातव्य है कि विगत तिमाही, यानी अप्रैल से जून 2019 के बीच जीडीपी वृद्धि दर 5% थी। यह सुनिश्चित है कि अगली तिमाही में जीडीपी की वृद्धि दर गिर कर 4% तक आ सकती है। यह बेहद चिंताजनक है कि भारत, जो कि कुछ वर्षों पूर्व तेजी से विकसित होती अर्थव्यवस्था था, अब खस्ताहाल स्थिति में है। किसी राजनीतिक आलोचक ने सही ही कहा है कि, आज भारत की अर्थव्यवस्था ICU में है।

Hindi translation of "BSNLEU writes to the CMD BSNL, protesting the Management's decision to retrench the remaining contract workers also - calls on the CMD BSNL to sit with the unions and associations for finding out a solution."

BSNLEU ने  शेष कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स के छंटनी के मैनेजमेंट के निर्णय का विरोध करते हुए CMD BSNL को पत्र लिखा- यूनियन्स और एसोसिएशन्स के साथ बैठकर इसका उपाय ढूंढने के लिए CMD BSNL से आव्हान भी किया..

BSNL मैनेजमेंट BSNL का रिवाइवल करने में असफल रहा है। वह कंपनी की 4G सेवाएं भी शुरू नही कर सका है। नतीजतन, मैनेजमेंट, कंपनी के राजस्व में वृद्धि हेतु तौर तरीके भी ढूंढ नही पाया है। VRS पश्चात कंपनी के लाभ अर्जित करने के CMD BSNL के बड़े बड़े दावों अनुसार कुछ भी नही हुआ है। और तो और, 79,000 कर्मचारियों की छंटनी करने के बाद भी शेष बचे कर्मचारियों को मैनेजमेंट निर्धारित तिथि पर वेतन भी नही दे पा रहा है। वह वेंडर्स व कॉन्ट्रैक्टर्स , मान्यताप्राप्त हॉस्पिटल्स के बिल्स के साथ ही इलेक्ट्रिसिटी, किराया आदि का भुगतान भी नही कर सका है। अतः अपने आपको बचाने के लिए मैनेजमेंट ने बड़े पैमाने पर कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स की छंटनी की है। कुछ ही दिनों पूर्व जारी पत्र में, कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस ने बचे हुए सभी कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को भी हटाने के CGMs को निर्देश दिए हैं। निश्चित तौर पर, यदि बचे हुए कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स की भी छंटनी हो जाती है, BSNL की सेवाएं छीन भिन्न हो जाएगी। यह एक जल्दबाजी भरा निर्णय है। BSNLEU ने इस पत्र में उल्लेखित निर्देशों का पुरजोर विरोध करते हुए CMD BSNL को लिखा है।  BSNLEU ने मैनेजमेंट से अनुरोध भी किया कि यूनियन्स और एसोसिएशन्स के साथ बैठकर वीडियो कॉन्फ्रेंसिंग के जरिए चर्चा करें, जिससे कि इस मुद्दे पर सार्थक निर्णय लिया जा सके।

As per media reports, nearly 1,50,000 direct and indirect jobs are likely to be wiped out in the telecom industry. This is due to the ongoing crisis, being witnessed in the telecom sector. Each telecom company is cutting down it's tariff rates, in a bid to safeguard it's customer base. This tariff war was triggered by the entry of the Reliance Jio. According to sources, Rs. 8 lakh crore is the debt of the various telecom companies. Till some time back, telecom was considered to be one among the top five employment generators of the country. According to the Annual Report of the Department of Telecom for the year 2016-17, the telecom sector was contributing for 6.5% of the GDP, which was equivalent to 140 billion US dollars, and it was employing 40 lakh employees, directly and indirectly.

Hindi translation of "Privatisation of the BPCL should be an eye opener to BSNL employees."

BPCL का निजीकरण BSNL कर्मियों के लिए चेतावनी...

नरेंद्र मोदी सरकार ने भारत पेट्रोलियम कारपोरेशन लिमिटेड (BPCL), जो कि एक बेहद मुनाफे वाला PSU है, के निजीकरण का निर्णय ले लिया है। जाहिर है, उसके निजीकरण की जरूरत नही है और उसके निजीकरण का कोई आधार भी (justification) नही है। 1971 के पूर्व  BPCL एक बहुराष्ट्रीय तेल कंपनी थी। 1971 के भारत पाकिस्तान युद्ध के बाद तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री श्रीमती इंदिरा गांधी द्वारा इस कंपनी का राष्ट्रीयकरण कर दिया गया था, क्योंकि भारत के पाकिस्तान के साथ युद्ध के दौरान इस कंपनी ने भारतीय एयरफोर्स के लड़ाकू जेट्स को ईंधन आपूर्ति से इंकार कर दिया था। यह दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण है कि मोदी सरकार इतिहास को पलट रही है और एक विशालकाय पब्लिक सेक्टर तेल कंपनी को किसी भारतीय या बहुराष्ट्रीय कॉर्पोरेट को सौंपना चाहती है। भारत सरकार का BPCL के निजीकरण का कृत्य राष्ट्र विरोधी होने के अलावा और कुछ नही है। जो सतही तौर पर "राष्ट्रवाद" की बाते करते हैं, उन्हें आत्मावलोकन करना चाहिए और सोचना चाहिए कि किस तरह मोदी सरकार "राष्ट्रीय हितों"  के साथ समझौता कर रही है। मोदी सरकार की पब्लिक सेक्टर की निजीकरण की नीतियों के विरोध में केंद्रीय श्रम संगठन ने 8 जनवरी, 2020 को आम हड़ताल का आव्हान किया है। इस आम हड़ताल में BSNLEU ने भी शामिल होने का निर्णय लिया है। हम सभी BSNL कर्मियों से अनुरोध करते हैं कि वें समग्र रूप से इस हड़ताल में शामिल हों। यदि हम अभी भी एक मूक दर्शक बने रहेंगे तो वह दिन दूर नही जब BSNL भी अम्बानी या अडानी को सौंप दिया जाएगा।

Transfer order issued to Delhi High Court judge at midnight.

The right minded people are shocked at the manner in which a midnight transfer order has been issued to Justice Muralidhar, transferring him from the Delhi High Court to the High Court of Punjab and Haryana. On 26.02.2020, Justice Muralidhar severely criticised the Delhi Police for not filing FIR against the BJP leaders, including Anurag Thakur and Kapil Mishra, who had made hate speeches and had instigated riots. This has annoyed the government and the transfer order of Justice Muralidhar was issued at 11:00 in the night on 26.02.2020. The law ministry justifies that on 12.02.2020 itself, the Supreme Court collegium had recommended Justice Muralidhar’s transfer. It is ok. But, why the transfer order was issued at 11:00 in the night? The judges who praise the government and the ministers will be benefited and the judges who criticise the government will be punished. Is this the rule of the present day government?
