Status of renewal of MoUs with Union Bank of India and Canara Bank.

The MoUs signed with the Union Bank of India and Canara Bank, by BSNL, have expired and BSNLEU has continuously demanding the BSNL Management to renew the MoUs at the earliest, so that employees can continue to get bank loans. BSNLEU has reminded the GM(BFCI) in this regard and has demanded him to take expeditious action. Com.Swapan Chakraborty, Dy.GS and Com.Gakul Bora, Treasurer, discussed the matter with the officers of the BFCI section yesterday. They are told that the Union Bank of India has so far not responded to the moves made by BSNL Management, for the renewal of the MoU. However, the Canara Bank has responded. But they have come with the proposal for loans with higher rates of interests. The BSNL Management has told them to come back with competitive rates of interests. The Canara Bank officials have told that it would take at least 10 days, since it requires the approval of their Head Office at Mumbai. BSNLEU will continue to pursue this matter.

यूनियन बैंक ऑफ इंडिया और केनरा बैंक से MoUs के नवीनीकरण की स्थिति...
यूनियन बैंक ऑफ इंडिया और केनरा बैंक से हुए BSNL के MoUs की समयावधि खत्म हो चुकी है। BSNLEU द्वारा निरंतर रूप से प्रबंधन से MoUs के शीघ्र नवीनीकरण करने की मांग की जाती रही है, जिससे कि कर्मचारियों को बैंक से ऋण मिलता रहे। BSNLEU ने इस संबंध में पुनः GM(BFCI) को स्मरण कराया है और त्वरित कार्यवाही की मांग की है। कॉम स्वपन चक्रबोर्ति, डिप्टी जीएस और कॉम गाकुल बोरा, ट्रेझरर ने कल BFCI सेक्शन के अधिकारियों से इस प्रकरण पर चर्चा की। उन्हें बताया गया कि BSNL प्रबंधन द्वारा MoUs के नवीनीकरण हेतु की गई पहल के प्रति यूनियन बैंक ऑफ इंडिया से प्रतिसाद नही मिला है। लेकिन कैनरा बैंक ने जरूर उत्साह प्रदर्शित किया है। किन्तु उन्होंने अधिक ब्याज दर से लोन का प्रस्ताव रखा है। BSNL प्रबंधन ने उनसे कहा है कि वें प्रतिस्पर्धात्मक ब्याज दरों के साथ अपना प्रस्ताव लेकर आवें। कैनरा बैंक के अधिकारियों ने कहा है कि इस हेतु उनके मुम्बई स्थित मुख्यालय से अनुमति लेना होगी और इस प्रक्रिया में 10 दिन लगेंगे। BSNLEU इस प्रकरण के निराकरण हेतु प्रयास करती रहेगी।

Oppose VRS - Organise powerful demonstrations on 12-04-2019.

In the name of revival of BSNL, the government is moving fast to implement VRS in BSNL. The DoT has not bothered to discuss it's so called revival plan of BSNL with the unions and associations, which are important stake-holders of BSNL. Further, the government has unilaterally decided to divert the income to be generated through the monetisation of BSNL's lands, to fund the VRS. This is nothing, but a well thought of plan, to deprive BSNL of the funds needed for it’s development and financial revival. Further, VRS is the government's strategy to cut down the size of BSNL's employees, so as to make it attractive for privatisation. The unions and associations which are opposing VRS have called on the employees to organise protest demonstrations throughout the country on 12-04-2019. We request all the circle and district unions to mobilise maximum number of employees and to make the demonstration a huge success.

VRS का विरोध कीजिए- 12-04-2019 को प्रभावशाली प्रदर्शन आयोजित करें...
BSNL के रिवाइवल के नाम पर सरकार BSNL में VRS क्रियान्वित करने की दिशा में तीव्र गति से बढ़ रही है। DoT ने  BSNL के तथाकथित रिवाइवल के प्लान पर यूनियन्स और एसोसिएशन्स, जो BSNL के प्रमुख हित धारक (stake holders) हैं, से चर्चा करना भी उचित नही समझा है। साथ ही, सरकार द्वारा एकतरफा निर्णय लेते हुए BSNL की रिक्त जमीन के मुद्रीकरण (monetisation) से प्राप्त राशि, VRS हेतु फण्ड उपलब्ध कराने हेतु डाइवर्ट करने का निर्णय लिया जा रहा है। यह और कुछ नही, बल्कि, BSNL के विकास और वित्तीय उन्नयन के लिए आवश्यक फंड्स प्राप्ति से BSNL को वंचित करने की सरकार एक सोची समझी योजना है। साथ ही, VRS, सरकार की BSNL कर्मचारियों की संख्या कम करने की रणनीति है, जिससे कि इसे निजीकरण के लिए आकर्षक बनाया जा सके। VRS का विरोध कर रही यूनियन्स और एसोसिएशन्स ने 12.04.2019 को देश भर में कर्मचारियों को प्रदर्शन करने का आव्हान किया है। हमारा सभी सर्किल और जिला यूनियन्स से अनुरोध है कि अधिक से अधिक कर्मचारियों को संगठित कर प्रदर्शन सफल बनावें।

BSNL Corporate Office imposes ban on Compassionate Ground Appointments.

It is a matter of serious concern that, the BSNL Corporate Office has issued letter today, imposing ban on Compassionate Ground Appointments. The letter says that, the BSNL Board, in it's 188th meeting, has decided not to fill up the vacancies arising from 01-04-2018, in view of the stressed financial condition of BSNL. This decision of the BSNL Management will cause irreparable loss to the families of the deserving candidates for CG Appointment.

VRS is the road map for privatisation of BSNL.

VRS is not a panacea for the financial crisis of BSNL. VRS is already implemented twice in MTNL. Still, MTNL is neck-deep in crisis. Why VRS has not helped MTNL to come out of the crisis? Can the government give answer to this question? The whole idea of the government in implementing VRS in BSNL, is to cut down the size of the workforce, to make it attractive for future privatisation. Implementation of VRS is nothing but the road map for the privatisation of BSNL. Those young employees who think of supporting VRS should understand this.

BSNL के निजीकरण का रोडमैप (योजना) है VRS...
VRS बीएसएनएल के वित्तीय संकट के लिए संजीवनी (रामबाण दवा) नही है। VRS को दो बार MTNL में लागू किया जा चूका है। इसके बावजूद MTNL आकंठ संकट में है। VRS, MTNL को संकट से उबारने के लिए कारगर क्यों साबित नही हुआ ? क्या सरकार इसका जवाब दे सकती है ? सरकार की VRS लागू करने के पीछे केवल कर्मचारियों की संख्या कम करने की मंशा है जिससे कि भविष्य में BSNL का निजीकरण करना आकर्षक प्रतीत हो। VRS का क्रियान्वयन और कुछ नही, वरन, BSNL के निजीकरण हेतु रोडमैप है। VRS का समर्थन कर रहे युवा कर्मचारियों को यह समझना चाहिए।

VRS is government's strategy to stop BSNL's revival.

The Unions and Associations of BSNL are demanding the government to approve BSNL’s Land Management Policy, since the revenue generated through the monetisation of BSNL’s vacant lands can be funded for the development and revival of the Company. But, now, the government has decided to ringfence the proceedings from the monetisation of BSNL’s vacant lands, for funding the VRS. This is a well thought of plan, to deprive BSNL of the funds needed for it’s development and financial revival.

यूनियन्स एवं एसोसिएशन्स ऑफ BSNL द्वारा बीएसएनएल की भूमि प्रबंधन नीति का अनुमोदन करने हेतु मांग की जा रही है, जिससे कि BSNL की रिक्त पड़ी भूमि से मुद्रीकरण (मोनेटाइजेशन) के माध्यम से अर्जित राशि कंपनी के विकास और रिवाइवल हेतु उपलब्ध कराई जा सके। किन्तु अब BSNL की रिक्त भूमि के मोनेटाइजेशन से प्राप्त राशि का उपयोग सरकार VRS के लिए धनराशि जुटाने के लिए घेराबंदी कर रही है। यह BSNL के विकास और वित्तीय उन्नयन के लिए आवश्यक फंड्स प्राप्ति से BSNL को वंचित करने की सरकार एक सोची समझी योजना है।

Organise Save BSNL - Save Nation campaign from 13th to 30th April, 2019.

To counter the systematic manner in which BSNL is being debilitated, the Central Executive Committee meeting of BSNLEU, has decided to organise a “Save BSNL – Save Nation campaign” throughout the country. In this campaign, street corner meetings will be organised, seeking the support of the general public, to save BSNL and to ensure it’s financial revival. This campaign will start on 13th April, 2019.

So the Ghaziabad CEC meeting has decided to commence the “Save BSNL – Save Nation campaign” from this date of Jalian Walla Bagh massacre. The Ghaziabad CEC meeting has decided that this “Save BSNL – Save Nation campaign” should be conducted independently by BSNLEU. The CHQ calls on the circle and district unions to take all out efforts to conduct this campaign effectively.

BSNLEU strongly demanded that the wage negotiation of the Non-Executives, which had been discontinued, should resume. GM(SR) replied that  the Corporate Office had written to the DoT, seeking some clarifications, which had not come so far. The Director (HR) directed the GM(SR) to write to the DoT, stating that the BSNL Management wants to resume the wage negotiation with the Recognised Unions of the Non-Executives.

BSNLEU strongly demanded that the BSNL Corporate Office should offer one more opportunity to the affected Sr.TOAs for giving a fresh option for promotion under NEPP. Serious and prolonged discussion took place on this issue. Finally, the Director (HR) rejected the demand of the union, stating that 3 extensions had already been given to the Sr.TOAs for giving / changing their options, and that no more option could be given. They argued that if the union’s demand is accepted, it will result in increased expenditure to the Company on account of increase in payment of pension contribution, which cannot be accepted in the present financial crisis being faced by the Company.

  

  1. Holding the JE LICE under 50% quota, as an ‘off-line’, instead of ‘on-line’ and to notify the date of the exam.

BSNLEU had already informed through the website that it’s demand for holding the JE LICE as ‘off-line’ exam had already been accepted. In today’s meeting, BSNLEU demanded that the ‘off-line’ exam for JE LICE should be held expeditiously. The Director (HR) accepted this.

 

  1. Relaxing the 10th standard qualification condition for candidates to appear Telecom Technician LDCE.

BSNLEU is continuously demanding that a one time relaxation should be given to the non-10th standard candidates to appear in the Telecom Technician LDCE. In today’s meeting, this was strongly insisted. The Director (HR) finally agreed to study the judgement of a related court case and then take a final decision.  

 

  1. Inordinate delay in holding the Standing Committee meeting

BSNLEU had already written to the Management to immediately hold the Standing Committee meeting since it is not held after August, 2018. This issue was discussed in today’s formal meeting. Since, there is urgency to hold a National Council meeting by the end of April, 2019, it was agreed to hold the Standing Committee meeting in May.
