Why the "PM CARES" Fund is covered by iron curtains?

The nation is told that, the “PM CARES” Fund is created for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. However, a lot of controversies are going on about this Fund. It is an alarming fact that, even the CAG has no power to audit the accounts of the PM CARES Fund. Further, no RTI question can be raised about the accounts of PM CARES Fund. It means the PM CARES Fund is completely covered by iron curtains and it’s dealings are highly secret. Why? 

 

It is an open secret that, the government has forced all the PSUs to donate money to the PM CARES Fund. According to the available information, 55 PSUs have been forced to contribute money to the PM CARES Fund. In this, the donations of 38 PSUs alone come to Rs.2,105 crores. The Central Ministers have used their official power to compel the PSUs to give donations to the PM CARES Fund. In BSNL also, one day pay was deducted from employees’ salaries for this Fund. Following are the details of donations given by some of the PSUs. 

 

  1.   ONGC         – Rs.300 crore
  2.   NTPC          – Rs.250 crore
  3.   Indian Oil     – Rs.225 crore
  4.   Power Grid  – Rs.200 crore
  5.   Power Fin   – Rs.200 crore
  6.   NMDC        – Rs.155 crore
  7.   REC           – Rs.150 crore
  8.   BPCL         – Rs.125 crore
  9.   HPCL         – Rs.120 crore
  10.   Coal India  – Rs.100 crore

 

The iron curtains of the PM CARES Fund only remind us the following proverb: -

 

" Power corrupts and 

absolute power corrupts absolutely".

Overwhelming response in Bangalore Telecom District Conference, for collection of AIC donations.

While concluding his speech in the District Conference of Bangalore Telecom District, on 22.09.2018, Com.P. Abhimanyu, GS, called upon the delegates to liberally donate for the 9th All India Conference, to be held at Mysuru from 08th to 11th January, 2019. He told the delegates that the total expenditure for the All India Conference, which is estimated to be around Rs.90 lakhs, has to be collected only from the members of BSNLEU. Responding to the call of the General Secretary overwhelmingly, the delegates attending the District Conference, immediately came forward and announced their donations to the AIC. It was a very inspiring scene to note that the delegates were competing with each other, to come to the dias, for announcing their donations. Within no time, an amount of Rs.2,75,000 was announced. It is very important to note that none of the donation announced in the Conference, was less than Rs.5,000/-. This shows the loyalty of the comrades to the organisation. The comrades who donated for the AIC, took photos with the General Secretary and other leaders, which are uploaded herein under.

Developments on 3rd Pay Revision.

The CMD BSNL and Director (HR) were holding discussions with the AUAB for the past two days. They were conveying the proposal given by the DoT with regards to 3rd Pay Revision. Accordingly, Pay Revision will be done immediately with 0% fitment. Thereafter, the Hon’ble Minister will take up with the Cabinet for granting 5% fitment. The AUAB had discussion among the General Secretaries and has unanimously decided that 10% fitment should be our minimum demand. This has been communicated to the DoT through the CMD BSNL. As regards the offer of DoT, BSNLEU’s understanding is that, pay revision will be done only with 0% fitment. We cannot trust the assurance of the Minister that 5% fitment will be taken for the approval of the Cabinet. It is our past experience that the DoT and the Hon’ble Minister have totally violated whatever assurance they had given. Hence, BSNLEU requests our circle and district unions to do the necessary gearing up to make the strike successful. Any further development will be updated immediately..

Hindi translation of "Meeting between the AUAB and the CMD BSNL held on 04.07.2019."

AUAB और CMD BSNL के बीच 04.07.2019 को मीटिंग सम्पन्न...

कल AUAB के प्रतिनिधियों ने श्री पी के पुरवार, CMD BSNL से मुलाकात कर विस्तार से चर्चाएं की। BSNLEU, NFTE, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, BSNL MS के महासचिव व AIGETOA, ATM and BSNL OA के प्रतिनिधि शामिल हुए।

AUAB के प्रतिनिधियों ने BSNL के राजस्व में वृद्धि के उद्देश्य से "BSNL आपके द्वार" अभियान के तीव्रता के साथ क्रियान्वयन करने के 03.07.2019 को AUAB की मीटिंग में लिए गए निर्णय से CMD BSNL को अवगत कराया। CMD BSNL ने इसकी प्रशंसा की और बताया कि BSNL कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस द्वारा भी इस कार्यक्रम की सफलता के लिए आवश्यक कदम उठाए जाएंगे। साथ ही उन्होंने सलाह दी कि बकाया राशि की वसूली हेतु भी प्रयास किए जाएं। CMD BSNL ने बताया कि अकेले EB ब्रांच में ही रु 3000 करोड़ की वसूली योग्य बकाया राशि (आउटस्टैंडिंग अमाउंट) है। उन्होंने स्क्रैप मटेरियल के निपटान का भी आग्रह किया, जिससे कि कुछ राशि प्राप्त हो सके। 

प्रतिनिधियों ने CMD BSNL के संज्ञान में लाया कि BSNL के FTTH कनेक्शन की जबरदस्त मांग है और इसके जरिए कंपनी आकर्षक राजस्व प्राप्त कर सकती है। साथ ही, उन्होंने बताया कि आवश्यक उपकरण और स्टोर्स व मटेरियल उपलब्ध नही है, फलस्वरूप BSNL मांग अनुसार FTTH कनेक्शन उपलब्ध नही करवा पा रहा है। CMD BSNL ने कहा कि इस संबंध में आवश्यक कार्यवाही की जाएगी।

AUAB के प्रतिनिधियों ने DoT द्वारा ALTTC की जमीन पर कब्जा करने की कार्यवाही पर कड़ा प्रतिरोध दर्ज कराते हुए कहा कि वें इसके विरोध में आन्दोलन करने के लिए बाध्य होंगे। CMD BSNL ने कहा कि इस संबंध में DoT को यथोचित तरीके से सूचित किया जाएगा।

AUAB के प्रतिनिधियों ने CMD BSNL को बताया कि इलेक्ट्रिसिटी बिल्स का भुगतान न होने की वजह से बड़ी संख्या में BTS बंद होते जा रहे हैं और विगत 6 माह से कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को भी वेजेस का भुगतान नही हुआ है। उन्होंने ध्यान दिलाया कि सेवाओं में तीव्र गति से गिरावट आ रही है, इस दिशा में शीघ्र ही कुछ किया जाना जरूरी है। CMD BSNL ने बताया कि कोई भी बैंक लोन देने के लिए तैयार नही है, किन्तु वें बैंक लोन हेतु पुरजोर प्रयास कर रहे हैं, जिससे कि स्थिति में सुधार हो सके।

BSNL से BBNL का मेंटेनेंस कार्य छीन लिए जाने के मुद्दे पर CMD BSNL ने बताया कि BSNL को मेंटेनेंस कार्य के एवज में प्राप्त राशि बेहद कम है और BBNL इसमें वृद्धि करने को तैयार नही है। अतः इस कार्य को जारी रखने में BSNL की भी रुचि नही है, क्योंकि यह कार्य फायदेमंद नही है। साथ ही, CMD BSNL ने बताया कि BSNL ने अलाभप्रद स्थिति में चल रहे 17000 एक्सचेंजेस के संचालन के लिए सरकार से मुआवजे की मांग की है।

Good news for BSNL - Airtel and Vodafone Idea are to increase their tariffs.

IT is really a good news for BSNL that, telecom tariffs have started rising. It is known to all that BSNL's earnings nose-dived from Rs. 32,000 crore per year to Rs. 18,000 crore per year, only due to the brutal tariff war triggered by Reliance Jio. But, this trend has started changing now. Jio has already raised it's tariffs. It is charging 6 paise per minute for calls going to other networks. Jio has also increased it's minimum pre-paid plan tariff to Rs. 98 per month. Under these circumstances, Vodafone Idea and Airtel are also raising their tariffs. As per media report, both the companies are expected to raise their tariffs between 5% to 10%. Consequent to this, BSNL can also increase it's tariffs, which will help to improve it's financial position.

Hindi translation of "Question by an employee regarding the pathetic condition of BSNL and the reply given by the CHQ.."

BSNL की दुर्दशापूर्ण स्थिति को लेकर एक कर्मचारी का सवाल और उसका CHQ द्वारा दिया गया जवाब.

एक कर्मचारी द्वारा BSNL की दुर्दशापूर्ण स्थिति को लेकर अपनी पीड़ा व्यक्त करते हुए CHQ को ई-मेल प्रेषित किया गया है। उक्त कॉमरेड द्वारा उठाया गया सवाल और उसका CHQ द्वारा दिया गया जवाब निम्नानुसार प्रस्तुत है। CHQ द्वारा दिया गया जवाब BSNL के प्रत्येक कर्मचारी के लिए एक संदेश है।
 
सवाल:

महोदय,

रिवाइवल प्लान को लेकर BSNL मैनेजमेंट/सरकार इतनी निश्चिंत क्यों है ? VRS के अलावा अन्य मामलों में कोई प्रगति नही है। BSNL में क्या चल रहा है  इसको लेकर हर कोई संशय (confused) में है, ऐसा प्रतीत हो रहा है कि सरकार अभी भी उसी मूड (BSNL को बंद करने) में है। आपके सवाल का मैनेजमेंट द्वारा क्या जवाब दिया गया है, वेतन हेतु फंड्स, यूनियन द्वारा  आंदोलन का कॉल दिए जाने पर ही क्यों जारी किए जाते हैं ? कृपया स्पष्ट कीजिए सर।

जवाब:

हमें, एक बात बेहद साफ तौर पर समझनी होगी। सरकार का वास्तविक उद्देश्य BSNL का रिवाइवल करना नही है, वरन, इसे एयर इंडिया की तरह एक बीमार कंपनी में परिवर्तित कर, अंततोगत्वा मुकेश अम्बानी को सौंपना है। मोदी सरकार का यह छुपा हुआ (hidden) एजेंडा है। हमें इसके खिलाफ लड़ना होगा। हमें BSNL के पक्ष में और BSNL को खत्म करने के सरकार के छुपे हुए एजेंडे के खिलाफ जन समर्थन हासिल करना होगा। BSNLEU की सेंट्रल एग्जीक्यूटिव कमिटी की मीटिंग सितंबर में होने जा रही है, जिसमें, इस संबंध में रणनीति बनाई जाएगी। लेकिन कॉमरेड, एक बात न भूलिएगा। आप जैसे हर एक कर्मचारी को यह संकल्प लेना होगा कि हम BSNL को एक बीमार कंपनी में परिवर्तित नही होने देंगे और सरकार के, BSNL को रिलायंस जियो को सौंपने के छिपे एजेंडे का पुरजोर तरीके से मुकाबला करेंगे।  

आदर सहित,

भवदीय,

पी अभिमन्यु, जीएस
