As per the decision, the All Unions and Associations of BSNL is organising a powerful lunch hour demonstration in front of the Sanchar Bhawan tomorrow. As per the Cabinet decision, Subsidiary Tower Company will come under the control of the Board of Directors of BSNL. As such, the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company should be appointed only by the BSNL’s Board of Directors. However, the DoT, in a high-handed manner, has appointed an IAS officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, without even informing the Board of Directors of BSNL. This it self clearly shows that, the Subsidiary Tower Company will not come under the control of BSNL. The whole game plan of the government is, to snatch the entire mobile towers of BSNL, in the guise of forming a separate tower company. Hence, opposing the formation of the Subsidiary Tower Company, and also opposing the high-handed action of the DoT, of appointing an IAS officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, the AUAB will be organising a powerful lunch hour demonstration in front of the Sanchar Bhawan tomorrow.
The DoT has given it’s final approval for the merger of Vodafone India Ltd. with Idea Cellular. The name of the new company will be Vodafone Idea Ltd. This will be the largest Indian Telecom Company, in terms of number of subscribers and quantum of revenue. Both the company’s have paid Rs.7,268 crore, in cash and in bank guarantee, to the government, for this merger.
AUAB रिटायरमेंट की आयुसीमा 60 से 58 किए जाना स्वीकार नही करेगा- 3rd पे रिवीजन के सेटलमेंट हेतु भी AUAB पुरजोर संघर्ष के लिए प्रतिबद्ध...
DoT द्वारा 19.12.2018 को CMD BSNL को संबोधित करते हुए लिखा हुआ पत्र सोशल मीडिया में व्यापक रूप से प्रसारित किया जा रहा है। उक्त पत्र में लिखा गया है कि वेज रिवीजन पर होने वाले अतिरिक्त खर्च को मैनेज करने के लिए BSNL द्वारा प्रस्तुत जस्टिफिकेशन स्वीकार्य योग्य नही है। साथ ही, इस पत्र के माध्यम से हमें यह भी ज्ञात हुआ है कि BSNL मैनेजमेंट का रिटायरमेंट की उम्र 60 साल से घटा कर 58 साल करने का भी प्रस्ताव है। इस संबंध में हम यह स्पष्ट करना चाहेंगे कि रिटायरमेंट की आयु सीमा 60 से 58 करने के प्रस्ताव को AUAB कभी भी स्वीकार नही करेगा। AUAB, बीएसएनएल मैनेजमेंट/ डॉट के VRS/CRS लागू करने के हर प्रयास का दृढ़ता के साथ प्रतिकार करेगा। इसके अलावा वेज रिवीजन के संबंध में BSNL की आर्थिक स्थिति को ले कर DoTके आकलन से AUAB सहमत नही है। वेज रिवीजन के निराकरण के लिए AUAB पुरजोर तरीके से लड़ने के लिए प्रतिबद्ध है।
An emergent meeting of the AUAB will be held at 11:00 am tomorrow, at BSNL MS office. The BSNL Corporate Management and DoT are responsible for the denial of payment of salary to the employees for the month of February, 2019. Despite severe protests from the employees, the Corporate Management has not taken any action so far, to arrange payment of salary to the employees. This indifference cannot be allowed. Further, the BSNL Management has started issuing show-cause notice to the leaders of the Executive Associations, for their role in organising the 3 day strike. The Management has also informed that break-in-service would be imposed for participating in the 3 day strike. The AUAB meeting, being held tomorrow, will discuss all these issues and will take decisions for taking appropriate actions.
BSNL और कैनरा बैंक तथा बैंक ऑफ इंडिया के मध्य MoUs पर हस्ताक्षर में विलंब...
BSNL और कैनरा बैंक तथा बैंक ऑफ इंडिया के मध्य MoUs के यथाशीघ्र नवीनीकरण हेतु BSNLEU निरंतर रूप से प्रयासरत है। विगत सप्ताह, महासचिव को कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस की बैंकिंग ब्रांच ने आश्वस्त किया था कि दोनों ही बैंक के साथ MoUs का नवीनीकरण एक सप्ताह में हो जाएगा। किन्तु ऐसा नही हुआ। अतः आज पुनः कॉम पी अभिमन्यु, जीएस ने कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस में संबंधित अधिकारियों से मुलाकात कर इस मुद्दे पर गंभीरता के साथ चर्चा की। अधिकारियों ने बताया कि कैनरा बैंक और बैंक ऑफ इंडिया का मैनेजमेंट अधिक ब्याज दर की मांग कर रहा है। उन्होंने यह भी बताया कि बैंक्स द्वारा एक और शर्त रखी गई है कि, जिन कर्मचारियों ने ऋण लिया है उनकी सेवानिवृत्ति की स्थिति में उन्हें देय सेवानिवृत्ति लाभ (टर्मिनल बेनिफिट्स) का भुगतान बैंक्स से क्लीयरेंस प्राप्त करने के बाद ही किया जाए। यह न तो हमें मंजूर है और न ही मैनेजमेंट को। महासचिव को आश्वस्त किया गया कि MoUs के नवीनीकरण हेतु दृतगति से प्रयास किए जाएंगे।
01st October is the BSNL Foundation Day of our beloved BSNL. It is extremely unfortunate that the employees are forced to observe protest day on BSNL's foundation day on 01.10.2019. Employees are not being paid salary, the Company is not able to even pay electricity bills, contract workers are not paid wages for the past 8 months and the revenue of the Company is going down drastically every month, due to the anti-BSNL attitude of the people who are in power. Much is being talked about the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL and revival of the Company, for the past several months. However, nothing has happened. As a result, BSNL’s condition is deteriorating fast. Hence, BSNLEU, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, BSNL MS, BSNL ATM and BSNLOA have called upon the BSNL employees to observe protest day on 01st October, 2019. Lunch hour demonstrations should be organised. Reports and photographs may please be sent to the CHQ.
It is known to everyone that Reliance Jio created a very big crisis, not only for BSNL, but for the entire telecom sector, by practicing predatory pricing. Many medium and small sized telecom companies are closed down, because of Jio’s predatory pricing. All the telecom companies, except Jio, have gone into loss. The total debt of the telecom sector is Rs.8 lakh crore. Now, Jio says that a minimum floor price should be fixed for data and voice calls. In reply to a consultation paper floated by the TRAI, the Jio has stated that among 230 countries of the world, data tariffs in India are 50 times lower than the tariffs of major developing / developed countries. The behaviour of Reliance Jio reminds us the proverb, “after eating 900 mice, cat goes on Haj pilgrimage”.

BSNLEU has already raised the demand with the BSNL Management that, the BSNL retirees should be allowed to retain their quarters upto 6 months from their date of retirement, at the normal rate of Licence Fee. BSNLEU has raised this demand, in view of the lock-down that has been imposed in the country, which has made it impossible for any one to get houses on rental basis. Today, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, discussed this issue with Shri A.M. Gupta, CGM(BW) and requested him to consider taking expeditious action to settle the demand. The CGM(BW) replied that, the demand is being looked into and that a decision would be taken soon.
CHQ is extremely shocked to know that, Com.Sarabjit Singh, district secretary, BSNLEU, Amritsar and also one of the senior leaders of our movement in Punjab circle, has passed away at 06:00 pm today. Com.Sarabjit, who was 58 years old, had been unwell for the past few days. He is survived by his wife, two daughters and a son. BSNLEU dips it's banner and pays respectful homage to Com.Sarabjit Singh and also conveys it's deep condolences to his family members, friends and comrades.
The All India Centre has decided that, a Facebook live programme should be organised in connection with the martyr’s day. Accordingly, Com.P.Abhimanyu, General Secretary, will deliver the address live on Facebook at 08:00 pm on 18.09.2020. The speech will be in English and Hindi. All the circle and district unions are requested to ensure that, maximum number of comrades view this live address programme.
As per the call of the " All Unions and Associations, powerful demonstrations were conducted throughout the length and breadth of the country by BSNL employees, demanding settlement of wage revision and opposing the formation of Subsidiary Tower Company. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the entire employees. If the government remains adamant, and refuses to settle the demands, then the employees will be forced to intensify the struggles, as per the decisions of the All Unions and Associations of BSNL.
Leaders of BSNL unions and associations, submitted memorandum to Hon’ble MP, shri Gokaraju Ganga Raju, Narsapur.
The 36th meeting of the National Council will be held on 16th April, 2018. All National Council members of BSNLEU are requested to kindly make note of this, and to attend the meeting without fail.
The All Unions and Associations of BSNL (AUAB) has been consistently telling that, the whole idea of the government to form BSNL’s Subsidiary Tower Company, is to privatise it. Soon after the Subsidiary Tower Company is made operational, disinvestment will start through inducting a strategic partner. Thereafter, it will not take long time for the government to privatise the Subsidiary Tower Company. But, still there are some people in BSNL, who do not believe this. What is going to happen in MTNL should serve as an eye opener to such people. Media reports say that, the NITI Aayog has already recommended to the government that, MTNL’s towers should be hived off to a separate company and there after it should be privatised. It is now proved beyond doubt that, the struggle of the AUAB against the Subsidiary Tower Company is 100% justified.
BSNLEU has been raising the demand that, the meeting of the Standing Committee of the National Council should take place periodically. This issue was raised in the last National Council meeting also. As per the communication held between the Secretary & leader of the Staff Side and the GM(SR), 08.08.2018 has been identified as the date for the next meeting of the Standing Committee.
The Unions of the Non-Executives and the Associations of the Executives have together launched various programmes like “Customer Delight Year”, “Service With A Smile”, “BSNL At Your Door Step”, etc., for bringing BSNL into profit. It is only because of the combined efforts taken by the Executives and Non-Executives, that BSNL is surviving even today. However, the BSNL Corporate Management is taking a position that, the unions of the Non-Executives and associations of the Executives, should not conduct any combined agitational programme. For the recent 3 day strike, the BSNL Management has started taking disciplinary action on the leaders of the Executives Associations. Show-cause notices are being issued to them. This is nothing but a provocative measure by the Management to break the unity of the Executives and Non-Executives. These vindictive and high-handed actions of the Corporate Management, to victimise the leaders of the Executive Associations cannot be allowed. We cannot allow the Corporate Management to break the unity of the Executives and Non-Executives. The AUAB meeting, taking place tomorrow, will chalk-out appropriate programme of action, to deal with the high-handedness of the Corporate Management.
01.10.2019 को विरोध दिवस के रूप में मनाएं....
1 अक्टूबर हमारे प्रिय BSNL का स्थापना दिवस है। यह अत्यंत दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण है कि कर्मचारियों को BSNL के स्थापना दिवस 01.10.2019 को विरोध दिवस के रूप में मनाने के लिए बाध्य किया जा रहा है। सत्ता में बैठे हुए लोगों के BSNL विरोधी रवैये की वजह से कर्मचारियों को समय पर तनख्वाह नही मिल रही है, कंपनी इलेक्ट्रिसिटी बिल तक का भुगतान करने की स्थिति में नही है, कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को विगत 8 माह से वेजेस का भुगतान नही हुआ है और कंपनी के राजस्व में तीव्रता के साथ गिरावट आ रही है। पिछले कई महीनों से BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम का आवंटन और BSNL के रिवाइवल बाबद काफी कुछ कहा जा रहा है। किंतु, हुआ कुछ भी नही है। परिणाम स्वरूप BSNL के हालात बहुत तेजी से बद से बद्तर होते जा रहे हैं। अतः, BSNLEU, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, BSNL MS, BSNL ATM और BSNLOA ने कर्मचारियों से 1 अक्टूबर 2019 को विरोध दिवस के रूप में मनाने और भोजन अवकाश में प्रदर्शन आयोजित करने का आव्हान किया है। कृपया रिपोर्ट्स और फोटोग्राफ्स CHQ को प्रेषित करें।
Replying to the unstarred question no.2950, Shri Sanjay Dhotre, Minister of State for Communications has informed the Lok Sabha on 11.03.2020 that pension revision of the employees absorbed in BSNL does not remain pending. He has further replied that the pension revision of absorbed BSNL employees is linked to the pay revision of the serving employees.
The US government has totally failed to contain the spread of Corona Virus. More than 11 lakh people are infected with Corona Virus Disease in the US and 65,000 people have already died. The US is the worst affected country by the Corona Virus Disease. Even many poor countries are managing this disease in a better way. Hence, to save his skin, the US President, Donald Trump, is trying to divert the attention of the US people, by telling that China is responsible for the Corona Virus crisis. The World Health Organisation Director General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, had already categorically stated that, the Corona Virus has originated from animals. However, even recently, Trump has told that, China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology is the origin of the Corona Virus. In reply to this, the Head of Emergencies at World Health Organsation (WHO), Dr. Michael Ryan, has categorically stated that, the Novel Corona Virus is “natural in origin.” Responding to Donald Trump yesterday, Dr. Michael Ryan stated that, the WHO team had listened “again and again” to many scientists, who had looked at the gene sequences of the virus, “and we are assured that this virus is natural in origin”.

As per the call of the AUAB, black-flag demonstrations were organised throughout the country today, opposing the cancellation of BSNL’s 4G tender and demanding immediate rolling out of 4G service by BSNL. As per the reports received from circles, demonstrations are successfully organised, with large participation of employees, in most parts of the country. Lock-down, prohibition under section 144 and various other restrictions have been imposed all over the country, to stop the spread of the Corona Virus Disease. However, it is heartening to note that, despite all these restrictions, the BSNL Non-Executives and Executives have successfully organised black-flag demonstrations. Everywhere, social distancing has been maintained in the demonstrations and masks were also worn by the participants. In addition to the black-flag demonstration, the Non-Executives and Executives wore black-badges today, to express their resentment.
