BSNLEU has already written in this regard to the Corporate Office, enclosing copy of the DoP&T letter which states that, such period should be treated as on duty.

Meeting with GM (Estt. & Rectt.)

Com P.Abhimanyu, GS, com. Swapan Chakraborty, Dy.GS, com.S.Chelappa, AGS and com.Ramesh Chand,Organising Secretary(CHQ) met Ms. Anima Roy, GM(Estt & Rectt), BSNL CO today, and discussed the following issues:

(1) Wrong fixation of qualifying marks for SC/ST candidates in the forthcoming JE LICE under 50% quota to be held on 28.01.2018.

The union representatives pointed out to the GM  (Estt & Rectt ) that in the model notification,  it is mentioned that the qualifying marks for SC/ST candidates would be 20% in each section and 30% in aggregate. Whereas, according to the orders of the Corporate Office, the qualifying marks for SC/ST are prescribed as 20% in each section and there is no provision for aggregate marks. Therefore, the union urged that in the notification the minimum marks for SC/ST candidates should be fixed without any aggregate marks.

The GM informed that  the qualifying marks for SC/ST  candidates are not changed, and that,  the order  issued earlier is for review of the results of the failed SC/ST candidates. She further clarified that, while reviewing the results of the failed SC/ST candidates, no minimum aggregate marks would be required.

(2) Conducting off line examination for JE LICE.

The union has already written to the Management for conducting the LDCE/ LICE from Non-Executive to Non- Executive through off line. Since, the proposed JE LICE is from the Non-Executive to Non-Executive, it should be conducted off line  only.

The GM replied that the JE  is the highest Non- executive  technical cadre and SOP also framed based on the technical support, therefore, the Management has decided to conduct the said LICE on line. The GM  assured that necessary action would be taken to conduct mock tests to familiarise the candidates with the process of on line exams. The union representatives urged that necessary instructions should be issued from the Rectt. cell to the circles to conduct mock test  every week before the exam, for which the GM agreed.

(3) On the issue of changing the cut off date from 1st July 2016 to 1st July 2017, for the JE LICE, the GM informed that since the exam is being held for 2016 vacancies, the cut off date could not be extended to 1st July, 2017.

However, she assured that the Union's demand for counting training period for qualifying service is accepted, and necessary instructions would be issued soon.

It is known to the entire world that, the BJP governments at the centre and in the states are using brutal force against the citizens who are peacefully protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), and the National Register of Citizens (NRC). Violence by any protester cannot be allowed. At the same time, action should be taken against them as per the law of the land. However, in states like Uttar Pradesh and Assam, where the BJP is the ruling party, protesters are being mercilessly shot down. The BJP President of West Bengal, Dilip Gosh, has taken pride in stating that the BJP governments have shot down the protesters like dogs. The mindset of the ruling BJP is well revealed by Dilip Gosh, who is a senior leader of that party.
