DoT approves the merger of Telenor with Airtel.

The merger of Telenor with Airtel is completed. The DoT gave it’s approval for this merger yesterday. Many small telecom companies, including Telenor are compelled to “shut down their shops”, due to the predatory pricing being adopted by Reliance Jio. This forced Telenor to get merged with Airtel. As a result of this merger, the customers of Telenor in the 7 circles of Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra, Gujarat, UP (East), UP (West) and Assam, will get integrated with Airtel. With this transaction, Airtel will increase it’s customer base to 330 million.

Hindi translation of "Impact of the strike..."

हड़ताल का प्रभाव...
AUAB द्वारा आहूत 3 दिवसीय हड़ताल जबरदस्त रूप से सफल रही है। BSNL के आम कर्मचारी AUAB द्वारा प्रस्तुत वाजिब मांगों के समर्थन में कंधे से कंधा मिला कर AUAB के साथ खड़े हैं। हड़ताल तोड़ू तत्वों और कुछ धोखेबाजों द्वारा प्रसारित कई तरह के झूठ और अफवाहें भी BSNL की वित्तीय सुनिश्चितता व BSNL कर्मियों के भविष्य के प्रति दृढ़ संकल्पित कर्मियों को अपने लक्ष्य से डिगा नही पा रही है। अंडमान निकोबार द्वीप के कैम्पबेल एक्सचेंज के कर्मचारी साथी इसका अनुपम उदाहरण है। यह एक्सचेंज नई दिल्ली से 2400 km की दूरी पर है, किन्तु यह दूरी कोई माने नही रखती है। इस एक्सचेंज के कर्मचारी संख्या में भले ही कम हो, किन्तु AUAB के कॉल पर ये सभी हड़ताल पर हैं। यह है हड़ताल का वास्तविक प्रभाव।

Hindi translation of "Why Jet Airways got doomed? Has the Corporate Media any answer?"

जेट एयरवेज धराशायी क्यों हुआ ? क्या कॉर्पोरेट मीडिया के पास इसका कोई जवाब है ?
जेट एयरवेज ने अपना संचालन बंद कर दिया है। और इसके पूर्व, महीनों से कर्मचारियों को वेतन भुगतान तक नही किया गया। अब, जेट एयरवेज के कर्मचारियों ने राष्ट्रपति और प्रधानमंत्री के पास उन्हें बचाने हेतु गुहार लगाई है। हमारी कर्मचारियों के साथ पूर्ण सहानुभूति है और हम उनकी मांगों का समर्थन भी करते हैं। साथ ही साथ, हम BSNL को लेकर मीडिया की भूमिका का भी जिक्र करना चाहेंगे। BSNL कर्मियों के माह फरवरी, 2019 के वेतन भुगतान में महज 15 दिनों का विलंब हुआ था। किंतु कॉर्पोरेट मीडिया ने इस अवसर को BSNL की छवि धूमिल करने हेतु भुनाया। उन्होंने आम जनता को बताया कि BSNL , कर्मचारियों को उनके वेतन का भुगतान करने की स्थिति में भी नही और शीघ्र ही खत्म होने की कगार पर है। BSNL में उपजे संकट का कॉर्पोरेट मीडिया ने पब्लिक सेक्टर सिस्टम पर हमला करने हेतु उपयोग किया। किन्तु, जेट एयरवेज को क्या हुआ ? यह तो सरकारी कंपनी नही है। यह तो निजी क्षेत्र की विशालकाय कंपनी है। बावजूद इसके, वह जमींदोस्त क्यों हुआ? कॉर्पोरेट मीडिया के पास इस सवाल का है कोई जवाब ? विपरीत इसके, हम ऐसी निजी क्षेत्र की अनगिनत भारतीय और बहुराष्ट्रीय विशाल कंपनियों की संख्या बता सकते हैं जो कॉर्पोरेट लालसा/लालच (greed) की वजह से नेस्तनाबूत हुई हैं। कम से कम अब तो कॉर्पोरेट मीडिया को पब्लिक सेक्टर को बदनाम करने का अभियान बंद कर देना चाहिए।

Gakul Borah, Treasurer (CHQ), met Ms. Smita Luthra, yesterday, the 14th May, 2018, and discussed at length about the abysmally poor results in the 50% JE LICE held on 28.01.2018. The union representatives informed the GM (Rectt.) that out of total 1800 candidates for 9,145 vacancies only 95 candidates qualified, which is only 1% of the total vacancies.

The representatives further pointed out that the union has already demanded for relaxation in qualifying marks as it was given in 2009 for the Direct Recruitment of TTA Exam for 2008, where most of the candidates were B-Tech or higher qualifications. A relaxation of 10% of marks in each of the individual parts subject to minimum qualifying marks of 15% was allowed to all the candidates who have appeared DR TTA examination 2008. Therefore, the Management should provide relaxation in qualifying marks for the departmental candidates to tide over the acute shortage, the representatives stressed.
