A brief note on the meeting of the Joint Committee on Wage Revision of the Non-Executives, held yesterday the 27-08-2018.

The 3rd meeting of the Joint Committee on Wage Revision of the Non-Executives took place yesterday the 27-08-2018. Shri H.C.Pant, Chairman of the Committee presided. All the Committee members, both from the Staff Side and the Management Side, were present. The Staff Side has already submitted it’s note on the structures of the new pay scales before the last meeting of the Committee. In yesterday’s meeting, the Management Side spelt out their proposals regarding the new pay scales.

Management Side proposed that, the minimum of the new pay scales should be arrived at, by multiplying the minimum of the existing pay scales by 2.4. Accordingly, they proposed the minimum of the new NE 1 pay scale as RS.18,600. However, the Staff Side did not accept this. They demanded that the multiplication factor should be 2.44. Accordingly, the minimum of the new NE1 pay scale comes to Rs.18,934 and that it should be rounded off to Rs.19,000. They also demanded that the 2.44 multiplication factor should be applied to arrive at the minimum of all the new pay scales. The Management Side agreed to examine these proposals of the Staff Side.


As regards the maximum of the new pay scales, the Staff Side has already proposed that they should be arrived at, by providing 43 years of span. But, the Management Side stated that this would result in heavy expenditure on account of payment of Pension Contribution. The Staff Side demanded that the spans of the pay scales should be provided in sufficient numbers, so that no Non-Executive would suffer from the problem of stagnation after the Wage Revision. It is decided to continue with the discussion in the next meeting, to be held on 10-09-2018.


The Staff Side members expressed their unhappiness that the talks are going on very slowly. They also stated that at this speed, the talks could not be completed expeditiously. They demanded that the meetings of the Committee should take place more frequently.

Hindi Translation of " DoT virtually rejects the key demands - now there is no other option, but to go on strike."

DoT द्वारा हमारी प्रमुख डिमांड्स स्पष्ट रूप से खारिज....अब हड़ताल पर जाने के अलावा कोई अन्य विकल्प नही.

AUAB और सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम  के बीच 02.11.2018 को सम्पन्न मीटिंग में यह बताया गया था कि DoT द्वारा BSNL से कुछ जानकारियां (queries) मांगी जाएगी। साथ ही यह भी बताया गया था कि BSNL से जवाब मिल जाने के बाद DoT द्वारा 3rd पे रिवीजन के संबंध में कैबिनेट नोट को अंतिम रूप दिया जाएगा। अब ज्ञात हुआ है कि DoT ने BSNL को पत्र लिख कर कुछ क्वेरीज प्रस्तुत की है। यह भी ज्ञात हुआ है कि उस पत्र में DoT ने हमारी 3rd पे रिवीजन, BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम का आवंटन और वास्तविक मूल वेतन पर पेंशन कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन की मांग को परोक्ष रूप से रिजेक्ट कर दिया है।

माननीय संचार राज्य मंत्री द्वारा दिए गए आश्वासनों पर विगत 8 माह में DoT ने कोई कार्यवाही नही की है। अब उन्होंने स्पष्ट रूप से हमारी सभी प्रमुख डिमांड्स रिजेक्ट कर दी है। अतः CHQ, सभी सर्किल व डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज के संज्ञान में लाना चाहेगा कि ऐसे में, अब हमारे पास हड़ताल/अनिश्चितकालीन हड़ताल पर जाने के अलावा कोई दूसरा विकल्प नही बचा है। सर्किल व डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज से अनुरोध है कि इस संबंध में हुई प्रगति सभी कर्मचारियों में व्यापक रूप से प्रसारित करें और कर्मचारियों को हड़ताल हेतु प्रेरित करने के लिए हर संभव प्रयास करें।

Hindi translation of "Unlocking BSNL's Gold Mine.."

बीएसएनएल के स्वर्ण खजाने का ताला खोलिए...

DoT और माननीय संचार राज्य मंत्री द्वारा यह कहा जा रहा है कि बीएसएनएल घाटे में चल रहा है और उसके लिए कर्मचारियों का 15%फिटमेंट के साथ वेतन संशोधन करना संभव नही होगा। हमें यह समझना चाहिए कि DoT द्वारा बीएसएनएल की वित्तीय स्थिति को केवल कर्मचारियों को 3rd पे रिवीजन न देने के लिए कमजोर बताया जा रहा है। ईमानदारी से कहें तो, सरकार बीएसएनएल की वित्तीय स्थिति में सुधार और उसके उन्नयन के लिए कोई कदम नही उठा रही है। बीएसएनएल को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम, जिसका बीएसएनएल की वित्तीय स्थिति में सुधार में महत्वपूर्ण योगदान होगा, का आवंटन सरकार द्वारा नही करना इसका स्पष्ट उदाहरण है। इतना ही नही, सरकार बीएसएनएल को उसका उपयोग करने की अनुमति नही दे रही है जिसे हम "बीएसएनएल की सोने की खान" कह सकते हैं। जी हाँ, बीएसएनएल के पास हर शहर और गांव में प्रमुख स्थानों पर वृहद रूप में फैली अपनी जमीन है। इन जमीनों की कीमत रु 1 लाख करोड़ के करीब है। इन जमीनों का मुद्रीकरण (monetise) कर बीएसएनएल बड़ी सहजता से प्रत्येक वर्ष रु 10,000 करोड़ का राजस्व प्राप्त कर सकता है। लेकिन DoT द्वारा ऐसी मौद्रीकरण (monetisation) की अनुमति नही दी जा रही है। बीएसएनएल द्वारा 29.10.2018 को अपनी "लैंड मैनेजमेंट पॉलिसी" हेतु अनुमोदन प्राप्त करने के लिए भी DoT को लिखा जा चुका है। यदि यह पॉलिसी मंजूर हो जाती है तो बीएसएनएल अपनी जमीन संपदा से काफी राजस्व अर्जित कर सकता है। लेकिन DoT द्वारा इसमें जानबूझ कर विलंब किया जा रहा है। कॉम पी अभिमन्यु, GS और कॉम स्वपन चक्रबोर्ति, Dy.GS, आज श्री अभय कुमार, CGM(BW) और श्री डी के सिंघल, GM(LD) से मिले और इस मुद्दे पर विस्तार से चर्चा की। उन्होंने आश्वासित किया कि बीएसएनएल की इन "स्वर्ण खानों" का ताला खोलने के लिए हर संभव प्रयास किए जाएंगे।

BSNLEU का VRS को विरोध क्यों ?
IIM अहमदाबाद ने BSNL के वित्तीय पुनरुत्थान के लिए VRS और रिटायरमेंट की उम्र पुनः 60 से 58 करने की सिफारिश की है। BSNLEU  ने VRS का विरोध किया है और मैनेजमेंट को सूचित किया है कि VRS से BSNL के वित्तीय पुनरुत्थान हेतु अपेक्षित परिणाम नही मिलेंगे। बहरहाल, कुछ संगठन VRS का स्वागत कर रहे हैं। विशेष तौर पर, डायरेक्टली रिक्रूटेड कर्मचारी ऐसा मान रहे हैं कि VRS से BSNL वित्तीय रूप से सक्षम संगठन में परिवर्तित हो जाएगा। हमने टेली क्रूसेडर के अप्रैल 2019 के अंक में, हम VRS का विरोध क्यों कर रहे हैं , यह स्पष्ट करते हुए एक आलेख (article) लिखा है।

AUAB meets the CMD BSNL - Discusses issues related to the revival package.

Leaders of the AUAB met the CMD BSNL yesterday and discussed about certain issues related to the revival package approved by the Cabinet. Shri Arvind Vadnerkar, Director(HR) and Shri A.M.Gupta, GM(SR) were present. Com.P.Abhimanyu,Convenor, Com.Chandeswar Singh, Chairman, Com.K.Sebastin,GS,SNEA, Com.S.Sivakumar, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com.Suresh Kumar, GS, BSNL MS, Com. Mohinder, CS, NTR, FNTO, Com.Sandeep Kumar, AGS, Com.Rewati Prasad, BSNL ATM and Com.H.P.Singh,GS,BSNL OA. The following issues were discussed.

 

At the outset of the meeting, the leaders appreciated the efforts taken by Shri P.K.Purwar, CMD BSNL, for getting the allotment of 4G spectrum and other financial assistances to BSNL approved by the government. 

 

  1. No rolling back of the retirement age to 58 years.

Even in yesterday's meeting, the CMD BSNL stated that the option of rolling back of the retirement age to 58 is still there with the DoT/government. The AUAB submitted it's letter to the CMD BSNL, signed by all the above mentioned leaders, demanding that the retirement age should not be rolled back to 58 years, by advancing the reasonings as to why it should not be done. CMD BSNL assured that the letter would be forwarded to the government. 

 

  1. Facing the shortage of manpower, consequent to the implementation of the VRS. 

It is pointed out by the AUAB that, after the implementation of the VRS, there will be acute shortage of manpower and the work load will increase tremendously. Consequently, the quality of the services will be badly affected, if suitable remedial measures are not taken. The CMD BSNL shared the concern of the AUAB. However, he stated that, the situation is fluid now and that appropriate action would be taken depending upon the situation. 

 

  1. As per Rules, commutation of Pension can be done when the employee is alive.

Now, as per the Cabinet decision, Pension will be settled only on the date of actual retirement of the employee who opts for VRS. In case, if a VRS optee dies before the date of his actual retirement, then his/her family cannot get the benefit of commutation of pension. The AUAB demanded that this issue should be resolved. The CMD BSNL assured that needful would be done. 

 

  1. Sending back the officers to their parent circles to facilitate settlement of their pension.

The AUAB pointed out that the officers who have already been transferred to far-away places and who will be availing VRS, will have to be sent back immediately to their parent circles, to facilitate settlement of their pension. This is because, pension can be settled only by their parent circles, argued the leader. The CMD BSNL appreciated the concern of the leaders and assured that needful would be done in this regard.
