Especially, the meeting has decided that, from 03.12.2018 onwards, the entire Non-Executives and Executives should participate in the street corner meetings in a big way. We have to make effective campaign among the general public that, the existence of BSNL, as a public sector company is very essential for the people of this country.

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.

VRS is complete cessation of the relationship between the employer and the employee - thus employees who go on VRS are not entitled for Pay Revision given retrospectively.

Some employees are raising the doubt, whether employees who go on VRS are entitled for Pay Revision. A judgement delivered by the Delhi High Court on 26th February, 2017, in the Sanjay Behari vs. IFCI Ltd. case, has said that employees who go on VRS are not entitled for any Pay Revision given retrospectively, for the period when they were in service. The relevant portion of the judgements says as follows:-

It is (VRS) a package deal of give and take. That is why in business world it is known as "Golden Handshake". The main purpose of paying this amount is to bring about a complete cessation of the jural relationship between the employer and the employee. After the amount is paid and the employee ceases to be under the employment of the company or the undertaking, he leaves with all his rights and there is no question of his again agitating for any kind of his past rights, with his erstwhile employer including making any claim with regard to enhancement of pay scale for an earlier period.

Republic Day greetings to all.

Republic Day greetings to all. Long live the Republic of India. Long live the secular character of the Indian Constitution.

26th January, 1950 is the day on which the Constitution of India is born and India became a Republic. The Constitution of India is based on Mahatma Gandhiji's thought that, India belongs to the people following all religions, viz., Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhism, etc. Thus, the Gandhian thought of secularism is the basis of our Constitution. However, today, the BJP government is taking all out efforts to change the secular character of the Indian Constitution. The CAA (Constitution Amendment Act) the NPR (National Population Registry) and the NRC (National Registry of Citizenship) being brought by the government, are nothing but to change the secular character of our Constitution. Prominent intellectuals of India and abroad have deplored the CAA, NPR and the NRC. Massive protests are taking place through the country against them. BSNLEU conveys it's warm greetings to all the comrades, as well as to all the people of our great nation, on this occasion of the Republic Day. BSNLEU also resolves to oppose the CAA, NPR and the NRC. Long live the great Republic of India. Long live the secular character of Indian Constitution.

 

Hindi translation of BSNLEU's Republic Day greetings.

गणतंत्र दिवस पर सभी का अभिनंदन। भारत का गणतंत्र अमर रहे। भारतीय संविधान का धर्मनिरपेक्ष स्वरूप अमर रहे...
26 जनवरी, 1950 वह दिन है जब भारत के संविधान का जन्म हुआ और भारत गणतंत्र बना। भारत का संविधान महात्मा गांधी के विचारों पर आधारित है जिसके अनुसार भारत सभी धर्मों का पालन करने वाले लोगों का देश है, जैसे  हिंदुत्व, इस्लाम, क्रिश्चन, सिख, बौद्ध आदि। इस तरह से गाँधीजी का धर्मनिरपेक्षता का विचार संविधान का आधार है। किन्तु, आज, BJP सरकार भारतीय संविधान के धर्मनिरपेक्ष ताने बाने को छिन्न भिन्न करने पर आमादा है। सरकार द्वारा लाए जा रहे CAA (संविधान संशोधन अधिनियम), NPR (राष्ट्रीय जनसंख्या रजिस्टर) और NRC (राष्ट्रीय नागरिक रजिस्टर) और कुछ नही, वरन हमारे संविधान के धर्मनिरपेक्ष स्वरूप को परिवर्तित करने का प्रयास है। भारत और विदेश के प्रतिष्ठित बुद्धिजीवियों ने   CAA, NPR और NRC की भर्त्सना की है। इनके खिलाफ देश भर में व्यापक आंदोलन हो रहे हैं।

BSNLEU, गणतंत्र दिवस के अवसर पर, हमारे सभी साथियों का और साथ ही हमारे इस महान देश के नागरिकों का अभिनंदन करती है। साथ ही BSNLEU, CAA, NPR और NRC के विरोध हेतु प्रतिबद्धता प्रदर्शित करती है।  भारत का विशाल गणतंत्र अमर रहे। भारतीय संविधान का धर्मनिरपेक्ष स्वरूप अमर रहे...

10 Central Trade Unions have given call for nationwide protest action on 03rd July, 2020, opposing the attacks on Labour Rights, privatisation of the Public Sector, etc. Utilising the restrictions imposed during this lock-down period, the Narendra Modi government is launching serious attacks on  Labour Rights.

As a prelude to those actions, the Central Trade Unions have given call for protest action on 03rd July, 2020.

Meeting with Sr.GM (Estt.).

Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, Com. Swapan Chakraborty, Dy.GS and Com. Animesh Mitra, Vice President (CHQ), met Shri Saurabh Tyagi,Sr.GM(Estt.), yesterday and discussed the following issues.
 

  1. Issuing notification for holding JTO LICE.

BSNLEU is insisting the Management, for the past several months, to hold the JTO LICE. A decision in this regard is yet to be taken by the Establishment Branch of the Corporate Office. In view of the impending implementation of the CPSU hierarchy, the Establishment Branch has sought some clarification from the Personnel Branch of the Corporate Office on the matter. However, it is understood that, no clarification has come from the Personnel Branch. The BSNLEU representatives who met the Sr.GM(Estt.) yesterday, expressed their serious concern on the inordinate delay in holding the JTO LICE, and insisted that the Establishment Branch should issue the necessary notification without further delay. The Sr.GM(Estt.) shared the concern of the representatives and assured that needful action would be taken immediately.

 

  1. Settlement of the issue of downgradation of Sr.TOAs from 7100 pay scale to 6550 pay scale.

This issue was once again discussed yesterday by the representatives of BSNLEU. They pointed out that the settlement of this issue is getting delayed. The Sr.GM(Estt.) has replied that, certain clarifications issued by the Corporate Office  on this subject earlier, need to be scrutinised, before taking a final decision. He replied that the Establishment Brach is on the job and that necessary action would be taken expeditiously.

 

  1. One time relaxation for appearing in the TT LIDCE.

BSNLEU is pressuring the Corporate Management for a very long time, to give one time relaxation to the non-10th standard  candidates for appearing in the Telecom Technician LDCE. The Corporate Office has called for certain inputs from the circle on the subject. It seems response has not come from any circles. Under this circumstance, the representatives of BSNLEU insisted upon the Sr.GM(Estt.) to send the proposal for the approval of the BSNL Board without further delay. The Sr.GM(Estt.) assured to do the needful.
