General Secretary discusses important issues with the CMD BSNL.

Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, met Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL, today and discussed the following issues:-

 

  1. Invitation for the All India Conference.

The 9th All India Conference of BSNLEU is being held at Mysuru from 17th to 20th December, 2018. In today’s meeting, Com.P. Abhimanyu, GS, invited the CMD BSNL, to address the Seminar that will be held in the All India Conference. The CMD BSNL accepted the invitation and assured to be present in the All India Conference for addressing the Seminar.

 

  1. Meeting with the Hon’ble MoS(C).

The AUAB has already demanded to the CMD BSNL that, a meeting with the Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications (I/C) should be arranged, to discuss the non-implementation of the assurances given by him. In today’s meeting, the General Secretary demanded the CMD BSNL to take efforts for arranging the meeting at the earliest. Responding to the General Secretary, the CMD BSNL informed that, a meeting between the AUAB and the Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications (I/C) is being arranged, and that it is likely to take place next week.

 

  1. Kerala flood relief.

One day’s basic pay has already been deducted from the salary of the willing BSNL employees towards Kerala flood relief. The AUAB representatives who met the CMD BSNL recently have demanded that the CMD BSNL himself should handover the relief fund to the Chief Minister of Kerala, since it will serve as a very big image boosting for BSNL. The CMD BSNL had replied earlier that, BSNL had already written to the DoT in this regard. In today’s meeting, the General Secretary enquired whether any reply has come form the DoT. The CMD BSNL replied that, no reply has so far from the DoT. Further, he added that he would take up the matter with the Joint Secretary (Admin), DoT, who has recently assumed charge.

 

  1. Holding JE LICE as off-line exam.

BSNLEU has already demanded that the JE LICE should not be conducted as an online exam. However, the demand was not accepted. In today’s meeting, the General Secretary, requested the CMD BSNL to consider the poor results of the JE LICE conducted as an online exam on 28.01.2018. He requested the CMD BSNL to hold the forthcoming JE LICE not as an online exam, but to hold it as an off-line exam. The CMD BSNL assured to examine BSNLEU’s proposal seriously.

 

  1. Granting Group B status and pay scale to the Sr. Accountants.

BSNLEU is continuously demanding that CAT Allahabad judgement should be implemented in respect of granting Group B status and pay scale to the Sr. Accountants. Despite the DoT issuing favourable instructions on the subject, the judgement of Hon’ble CAT could not be implemented, since an appeal has been filed by the BSNL Management, against the CAT judgement, in the Allahabad High Court. In today’s meeting, the General Secretary demanded to the CMD BSNL that, this appeal filed by BSNL should be withdrawn so that the CAT judgement could be implemented. The CMD BSNL assured to look into it.

 

  1. Holding the Management Trainee exam.

BSNLEU has already written to the CMD BSNL, demanding that the Management Trainee examination should be conducted without further delay. In today’s meeting the CMD BSNL informed the General Secretary that the Management Committee has recently decided to go ahead with holding the Management Trainee exam.

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.

Bhatnagar (Atish Dabholkar Awardee), etc. The letter ends with an appeal to withdraw the bill in it’s current form.

BSNLEU demands the immediate launching of BSNL’s 4G service.

A Rs.69,000 crore Revival Package for BSNL and MTNL was announced by the government with much ‘pomp and show’, four months ago. Except the retrenchment of 78,000 employees in BSNL, nothing else has happened, as was announced in the Revival Package. The inordinate delay in the launching of it’s 4G service by BSNL, is having a telling impact on it’s revival. The CEC meeting of BSNLEU held at Vadodara has passed resolution demanding that BSNL’s 4G service should be launched immediately to take advantage of the favourable situation presently prevailing in the telecom market.
