State Bank of India comes back to profit.

The State Bank of India has once again become profit making. For the 3 months quarter ended in March 2019, the State Bank of India has made a net profit of Rs.838 crore. It must be remembered that, State Bank of India ran into a loss of Rs.7,718 crore in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. State Bank of India went into loss, mainly because of the writing off of the bad loans. The big corporates take loans from the public sector banks and never repay them. The government, instead of making the corporates to repay the loans, write them off. During the last five years, the Narendra Modi government has written off bad loans to tune of Rs.5 lakh crore.

The quota for SC/ST is not against merits - says the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court of India has upheld the reservation to SC/ST employees in promotions. A Bench of the Supreme Court, with justices U.U.Lalit and D.Y. Chandrachud, has given this judgement. The court has told that the quota for SC/ST in promotions is not against merits. The Supreme Court has said that merit must not be seen in a narrow perspective. The court has said, “merit must not be limited to narrow and inflexible criteria such as one’s rank in an exam, but rather must flow from the actions a society seeks to reward, including the promotion of equality in society…..”

Influential corporate houses had managed to penetrate the judiciary - says Justice Arun Mishra of the Supreme Court.

We know that the government policies are being influenced by the big corporates. One good example for this is the privatisation of the public sector companies. But, we are shocked to know that, the big corporates have penetrated into the Supreme Court also. This was revealed by none other than Justice Arun Mishra, of the Supreme Court. He has told that the influential corporate houses had managed to penetrate the judiciary. This statement is made by Justice Arun Mishra, because the judgement delivered by him in the open court, has been changed by the court staff, in the case of controversial builder, Amrapali.

A few days back, the Deccan Herald newspaper had reported that BSNL’s Board of Directors had decided to merge smaller circles with bigger circles, like merger of Chhattisgarh with Madhya Pradesh. The paper had also reported that the Board had decided to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58. This was clarified with the CMD BSNL. In reply, the CMD BSNL told that the information published in the newspaper was absolutely not true.


(b) Non-settlement of issues in NTR circle.

Since the CMD BSNL is also holding the post of Director (HR), the representatives of BSNLEU informed him about the non-settlement of burning and long pending issues in NTR circle, and also about the unhelpful attitude of the CGM, NTR. The representatives pointed out about the violation of the CVC guidelines, in respect of posting officers in sensitive posts.

CMD BSNL के साथ मीटिंग...

कल दिनांक 07.05.2019 को BSNLEU के प्रतिनिधियों की CMD BSNL के साथ मीटिंग हुई।
कॉम पी अभिमन्यु, GS, कॉम स्वपन चक्रबोर्ति, Dy.GS और कॉम आर एस चौहान, VP(CHQ)  मीटिंग में शामिल हुए। निम्न मुद्दों पर चर्चा हुई। 

(a)  सर्कल्स के विलय और रिटायरमेंट की आयु सीमा 60 से 58 करने से संबंधित अखबार की रिपोर्ट:

कुछ दिन पूर्व डेक्कन हेराल्ड अखबार में न्यूज़ प्रकाशित हुई थी कि BSNL के बोर्ड ऑफ डायरेक्टर्स ने निर्णय लिया है कि छोटे सर्कल्स का बड़े सर्कल्स में विलय कर दिया जाएगा, जैसे कि छत्तीसगढ़ का मध्यप्रदेश में विलय। अखबार में यह रिपोर्ट भी है कि बोर्ड ने रिटायरमेंट की आयु सीमा भी 60 से घटा कर 58 करने का निर्णय लिया है। CMD BSNL से इस संबंध में स्पष्टीकरण चाहा गया। इसके जवाब में CMD BSNL ने बताया कि अखबार में प्रकाशित जानकारी में किंचित भी सत्यता नही है। 


(b)  NTR सर्किल के मुद्दों का निदान न होने बाबद:

चूंकि, CMD BSNLके पास डायरेक्टर (एच आर) का भी पदभार है, BSNLEU के प्रतिनिधियों ने उन्हें NTR सर्किल के ज्वलंत और काफी समय से लंबित मुद्दों का निराकरण नही होने बाबद और साथ ही CGM, NTR के असहयोग पूर्ण रवैये से अवगत कराया। प्रतिनिधियों ने संवेदनशील पोस्ट्स पर पदस्थापना में CVC की गाइडलाइन्स के उल्लंघन की ओर भी ध्यान आकर्षित किया। PGM (pers.) द्वारा NTP/NTR से "पिक एन चूज" आधार पर BSNL कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस में किए गए स्थानांतरण का मुद्दा भी CMD BSNL के समक्ष उठाया गया। उन्होंने इस प्रकरण का संज्ञान लेने का आश्वासन दिया।

Privatising all the Public Sector banks is not the remedy - says Raghuram Rajan, former Governor of the Reserve Bank of India.

At a time when the government is taking all possible steps to make the Public Sector banks sick, so that they can be privatised easily thereafter, former Governor of the Reserve Bank of India, Raghuram Rajan, has stated that privatising all the Public Sector banks is not the remedy. This is reported in today’s The Hindu. What he says to bring the banking sector out of the crisis, is also applicable to BSNL. The government of the day is taking all out steps to make BSNL sick, with the ultimate aim of privatising it. The corporates and their media are also making loud noises that, BSNL should be privatised. To this, Raghuram Rajan says that ownership is just one issue. But, he says that, governance and transparency are the important issues. For BSNL, it’s main problem is the governance. The DoT is not allowing BSNL Management to function independently. For each and every small thing, BSNL Management has to get approval from the DoT. For example, even for taking bank loans. Raghuram Rajan says that the government should reduce the number of mandates that the government is giving to the Public Sector banks. This is applicable to BSNL also. The DoT should stop giving dictates to BSNL and allow it to function freely.

The Centre needs to act to urgently revive strategically important BSNL.

The employees of BSNL are struggling, demanding immediate steps to be taken by the government for the revival of BSNL. At this crucial juncture, Business Line, one of the prominent financial newspapers of the country, has demanded that the government should take urgent steps for the financial revival of BSNL. This is a good development. Business Line has argued that the consumers of India need a strong Public Sector company like BSNL, to safeguard themselves from the high tariffs of the private telecom companies. This is an important view and we strongly support it. Similarly, Business Line argues that BSNL’s vacant lands should be monetised, and the proceeds (amount) should be invested for the modernisation and expansion of it’s networks. We strongly support this view also. However, we do not endorse the view of Business Line saying that VRS should be implemented.

Hindi translation of "Petrol and diesel prices likely to increase further in India, due to the US sanction imposed on Iran."

ईरान पर थोपे गए अमेरिकी प्रतिबंधों की वजह से भारत मे पेट्रोल और डीजल में और मूल्यवृद्धि की संभावना...

 

अमेरिकी साम्राज्यवाद ईरान को धमका रहा है। US द्वारा ईरान पर प्रतिबंध लगाए जा चुके हैं। उसने आदेशित किया है कि ईरान से कोई भी देश तेल का आयात न करें। यह भर्तस्नीय है कि भारत सरकार ने भी घोषणा की है कि वह भी अमेरिकी साम्राज्य के आदेश का पालन करेगा और आज के बाद ईरान से कच्चा तेल (crude oil) आयात नही करेगा। इस निर्णय के परिणाम स्वरूप भारत मे पेट्रोल और डीजल के मूल्य में और वृद्धि होगी। वैसे ही, नई दिल्ली में पेट्रोल रु 73/- प्रति लीटर  बेचा जा रहा है, जबकि पाकिस्तान में यह रु 46.22 और श्रीलंका में रु 51/- है। भारत सरकार द्वारा पेट्रोल और डीजल पर भारी टैक्स थोपने से यह स्थिति है। यदि अमेरिका के ईरान पर प्रतिबंधों के चलते भारत में डीजल के मूल्यों में और वृद्धि होती है तो निःसंदेह अन्य सभी वस्तुओं (commodities) की कीमतें भी बढ़ेंगी। आम नागरिकों को इसका खामियाजा भुगतना होगा।

Petrol and diesel prices likely to increase further in India, due to the US sanction imposed on Iran.

The US imperialism is bullying Iran. It has already imposed sanctions on it. It has ordered that no country should import oil from Iran. It is deplorable that the government of India has announced that from today onwards, it will also follow the dictate given by the US imperialism, and will not import crude oil from Iran. As a result of this decision, petrol and diesel prices will further increase in India. Petrol is already being sold at Rs. 73 in New Delhi, whereas, it is only Rs.46.22 in Pakistan and Rs.51 in Srilanka. This is because, government of India has imposed high tax on petrol and diesel. If the price of diesel further increases in India, due to the sanction imposed on Iran, by the US, then the prices of all the commodities will also increase. The common man is going to be the sufferer.
