Meeting between the Director (HR) and Com.P.Abhimanyu,GS.

Com.P.Abhimanyu, met Ms.Sujata Ray, Director(HR) today and discussed certain important issues being pursued by BSNLEU. The details of the discussion are as follows:-

 

  1. Review of JE LICE results.

In view of the very poor results, BSNLEU has been continuously insisting upon the Corporate Management, for giving relaxation to the candidates who appeared in the JE LICE held in January. This issue was raised in the last National Council meeting also, for which Director (HR) responded positively. It appears that the Management has taken some action in this, but final decision has not been taken. This issue was discussed by the GS with the Director (HR) in today’s meeting. She reported that the GM (Rectt.) has gone for training and a final decision will be taken on her return in the first week of September.

 

  1. Re-engagement of the retrenched contract workers.

As a cost-cutting measure, the Corporate Office has directed retrenchment of contract workers to the extent of 30%. This instruction has already been implemented in most of the circles and contract workers have been retrenched. In the meanwhile, BSNLEU has demanded that these retrenched contract workers could be re-engaged and could be gainfully utilised in the marketing. This issue has been discussed with the CMD BSNL, who responded positively. This issue was again discussed with the Director (HR) in today’s meeting. The Director (HR) assured that needful action would be taken.

 

  1. Non-implementation of Corporate Office orders on remittance of CHQ quota.

Corporate Office has already issued letters to all the Chief General Managers, for deduction of BSNLEU’s subscription at the enhanced rate, and also that the CHQ quota should be directly sent to the CHQ. Still, this has not been implemented in some of the circles. This issue was raised with the Director (HR) in today’s meeting. She directed the GM(SR) to speak with the GM (HRs) of such of those circles, for taking necessary corrective measures.

 

  1. Settlement of downgradation of the Sr.TOAs from 7100 pay scale to 6500 pay scale.

This issue was discussed with the CMD BSNL in the meeting held on 10.07.2018. The CMD BSNL has assured to settle this issue. Consequently, the Establishment Branch of the Corporate Office is taking needful steps for the final settlement of the issue. In today’s meeting, the GS requested the Director (HR) to issue early orders to bring the sufferings of the affected Sr.TOAs to an end. The Director (HR) assured that needful action would be taken expeditiously.

Redesignation of 19 left out cadres - Management cancels notification of the Redesignation Committee meeting, fixed without consulting the Recognised Unions.

The process of giving new designations to all the cadres in BSNL is almost completed. However, new designations for 19 cadres, in the pay scales of NE-1, NE-2 and NE-3 are recommended by the Redesignation Committee, but the same was not approved by the Management Committee of BSNL. Hence, the Redesignation Committee has to meet once again, to finalise the new designations for these 19 cadres. Under these circumstances, the Management issued notification for holding a meeting of the Redesignation Committee on 30.01.2019. However, the General Secretaries of the Recognised Unions are not consulted in fixing this date. Since, both the General Secretaries of the Recognised Unions will be out of Delhi on 30.01.2019, they requested the GM (Restg.) to hold the meeting on 06.02.2019. The Management has cancelled the notice issued for 30.01.2019. No new date is fixed. The cadres whose new designations are not yet finalised are as follows:-  

 

Ayah, Bearer, Beldar, Chowkidar, Cleaner, Duftary, Farash, Khalasi, Lady Chowkidar, Mali, Office Peon, Peon, Safaiwala, Shramik, Sweeper, Washboy, Dish Cleaner, Waterman, Gateman.

However, once again, the BSNL advocate made an hectic effort today, to vacate the stay. Accompanied by BSNL officers, the BSNL advocate mentioned before the Hon'ble judge of the Hon'ble Madras High Court today, that 12-09-2019 is too long a period, and that the case should be heard at least on 03-09-2019. However, the Hon'ble judge rejected it. Thus, one more attempt made by the BSNL Management has failed in the Hon'ble Madras High Court.

We will not allow the merger of BSNL and MTNL to become a death trap for BSNL.

Many comrades have brought a media report to the notice of the CHQ. The report says that, the “Parliamentary Committee on Petitions” has recommended the merger of BSNL and MTNL, and that the report of the Committee is tabled in the Lok Sabha. As a matter of fact, this Parliamentary Committee on Petitions finalised this report in March 2017 itself. The recommendations of the Committee was already reported in the Economic Times dated 16-03-2017. Immediately, we have written to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, demanding the following steps to be taken urgently, before the government takes any final decision on the merger of BSNL and MTNL. We will not allow the merger of BSNL and MTNL to become a death trap for BSNL.


WE DEMAND THE FOLLOWING AS A PRECONDITION FOR THE MERGER OF BSNL AND MTNL.


MTNL should be delisted from the share market.

BSNL is not a listed company, with the government controlling 100% of it’s stake. At the same time, MTNL is listed in the share market, and 46.5% of it’s shares are already sold in the market. The BSNL employees are having a genuine apprehension in their minds that, the merger of BSNL and MTNL is being contemplated by the government, as a prelude to start disinvestment / strategic sale in BSNL. Under these circumstances, BSNL employees are strongly opposed to any merger of MTNL with BSNL. Hence, we demand that the government should delist MTNL first from the share market, before merger.


Government should take over the financial liability of MTNL.

MTNL is having a huge financial liability. It’s asset value is very less, compared to it’s financial liability. BSNL’s financial position is too fragile to absorb the huge financial liability that MTNL is having. Hence, it is demanded that the government should take over the entire financial liability of MTNL, before merger.


Government should provide financial assistance to BSNL to revamp the networks in MTNL areas.

MTNL has not made any investment in the recent years, to strengthen it’s networks. As a result, MTNL’s networks, both mobile and landline, are in shambles. If MTNL is merged with BSNL, the latter has to invest a huge amount, to revamp the networks. In the present situation, BSNL is not having the wherewithal to make such huge investment. As it was rightly pointed out by the then Hon’ble Minister of Communications, shri Ravi Shankar Prasad ji, BSNL was not allowed to procure equipments for it’s network expansions, during the UPA regime. Only for the past three years, BSNL has started making network expansions, and is heading towards profitability. Under these circumstances, BSNL cannot afford to make big investments to revamp the networks in MTNL areas. If sufficient revamping of MTNL’s networks is not done expeditiously, the merger will further weaken BSNL’s financial condition. Hence, it is demanded that the government should provide sufficient financial assistance to BSNL to revamp MTNL’s networks on a war foot measure.


Salary structure of the employees of BSNL and MTNL should be one on the same.

At present, the salary structures of employees of BSNL and MTNL are different. The pay scales of the MTNL employees are one step above. If both the companies are to be merged, then the salary structure of the employees of BSNL and MTNL should be made one and the same.

Non-cooperation to NOFN and other government projects.

As per the call of the All Unions and Associations of BSNL, the employees of BSNL are observing ‘Work According to Rule’ from 30.01.2018. This struggle was reviewed in the meeting of All Unions and Associations of BSNL, held yesterday the 06.02.2018, as well as in the Steering Committee meeting held today. After detailed discussion, it has been decided to observe Non-cooperation to NOFN and other government projects. This decision is taken in view of the fact that the DoT and the government have denied justice to BSNL employees in the matter of 3rd Pay Revision, pension revision to BSNL retirees, forming the Subsidiary Tower Company, etc. Entire Non-Executives and Executives are requested to strictly observe this Non-cooperation, in addition to implementing the ‘Work According to Rule’ call. The All Unions and Associations of BSNL is writing to the Secretary, DoT and to the CMD BSNL, about the struggle of Non-cooperation to NOFN and other government projects.

Pakistan Prime Minister, Imran Khan, bans First Class Air Travel for leaders and top officers.

Former Cricket Star, Imran Khan, has recently assumed office as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. On last Friday, Imran Khan announced that first class Air Travel is banned for government officials. This ban is applicable to all leaders and government officials including the President, Prime Minister, Chief Justice, Ministers, etc. Imran Khan has told that this step is being taken as a part of the austerity measures being implemented by the government. In Pakistan, austerity measures are implemented even for the President and the Prime Minister. However, in BSNL even the officers of CGM rank are flying in Business Class. The AUAB has already demanded that, austerity measures should be implemented for the top officers of BSNL. However, so far no action has been taken. Our BSNL Management should take a leaf from the book of Pakistan.

Organise rallies massively throughout the country tomorrow - Prepare the employees for strike.

The AUAB has called on the BSNL employees to organise massive rallies, demanding settlement of 3rd pay revision, allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, pension revision and payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay. The rallies are being organised at New Delhi, at circle and district head quarters. CHQ calls upon the circle and district unions to have necessary coordination with the other constituents of the AUAB and organise tomorrow’s rallies massively and effectively. These rallies should be utilised as preparatory for the strike.

Unlocking BSNL's Gold Mine - General Secretary and Deputy General Secretary meet the Chief General Manager (BW)..

The DoT, as well as the Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications, are telling that BSNL is running in huge loss, and it will not be able to pay salaries to the employees, in the revised pay scales, with 15% fitment. We have to understand that the DoT cites the poor financial condition of BSNL, only to deny 3rd Pay Revision to the employees. Honestly speaking, the government is not willing to take any step, for the improvement of BSNL’s financial position, as well as it’s revival. A clear example is that the government does not want to allot 4G spectrum to BSNL, which will play a major role in improving BSNL’s financial condition. Not only that. The Government is not also allowing BSNL to utilise, what is called as BSNL’s Gold Mine. Yes, BSNL is having vast areas of lands in the prime parts of all the cities and towns. The value of these lands comes to Rs.1 lakh crores. BSNL can easily earn at least Rs.10,000 crore revenue per year, if these lands are monetised. However, the DoT is not approving this monetisation. BSNL has already written to the Secretary, Telecom, on 29.10.2018, seeking approval for it’s Land Management Policy. If this policy is approved, BSNL can generate huge revenues from it’s landed properties. But so far, the DoT has not given it’s approval for BSNL’s Land Management Policy. Com.P. Abhimanyu, GS and Com.Swapan Chakraborty, Dy.GS, met Shri Abhai Kumar, CGM(BW) and Shri D.K. Singal, GM(LD) today and discussed at length about this issue. BSNLEU’s representatives assured them that all out efforts will be taken to unlock BSNL’s Gold Mine.
