Hindi translation of "Dharna programme with social distancing is to be organised on 26.06.2020."

सोशल डिस्टनसिंग का पालन करते हुए 26.06.2020 को धरना प्रोग्राम आयोजित किया जाए.

आज (15.06.2020) सम्पन्न BSNLEU की सेंट्रल सेक्रेटेरिएट की मीटिंग में निम्न मुद्दों को लेकर, 26.06.2020 को, सोशल डिस्टनसिंग के साथ,धरना प्रोग्राम आयोजित करने का निर्णय लिया गया।


(1) 4G सर्विस की शुरुआत में देरी :

केंद्र सरकार द्वारा 23.10.2019 को BSNL के लिए रिवाइवल प्लान घोषित किया गया। इस प्लान के अनुसार, 79,000 कर्मचारियों की VRS के तहत छंटनी की जा चुकी है। VRS के अलावा BSNL के रिवाइवल के लिए सरकार द्वारा घोषित अन्य किसी भी कदम पर कार्यवाही नहीं की गई है। BSNL द्वारा 4G सर्विस की शुरुआत न करना, इसमें प्रमुख है। BSNL की 4G सर्विस को रोकने के लिए षड्यंत्र रचा गया है। 


(2) BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा विभिन्न मुद्दों का निराकरण नही किए जाना:

BSNL मैनेजमेंट कर्मचारियों की परेशानियों के प्रति असंवेदनशील है। कर्मचारियों को वेतन भुगतान समय पर नहीं किया जा रहा है। कोविड-19 की इस विभीषिका के दौरान भी कर्मचारियों के लिए कैशलेस ट्रीटमेंट उपलब्ध नही है। वर्तमान में उपलब्ध मेडिकल सुविधाएं भी छीनी जा रही है। LIC/PLI प्रीमियम और सोसाइटी के डिडक्शन्स का प्रेषण नही होने से भी कर्मचारी परेशान हो रहे हैं। कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को एक वर्ष से वेजेस का भुगतान नही किया गया है और उनकी वृहद रूप से छंटनी भी की जा रही है। GTI (Group Term Insurance) लागू करने और JTO LICE में छूट (relaxation) में अप्रत्याशित देरी की जा रही है। संक्षेप में यह कि, नॉन एग्जीक्यूटिव्ज के किसी भी  मुद्दे का निराकरण BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा नही किया जा रहा है। मैनेजमेंट, पूर्णरूपेण, कर्मचारियों की परेशानियों के प्रति असंवेदनशील है।


उपरोक्त परिस्थिति के परिप्रेक्ष्य में, सेंट्रल सेक्रेटेरिएट द्वारा, सोशल डिस्टनसिंग के साथ, 26.06.2020 को धरना प्रोग्राम आयोजित करने का निर्णय लिया गया है। कोविड-19 के चलते, मीटिंग ने निर्णय लिया कि बड़े स्थानों पर केवल 10 से 15 साथी धरना में शामिल हों। अन्य जगह, केवल 5 साथी शिरकत करें। तख्तियों के प्रदर्शन (Display of placards) और मीडिया में प्रचार की व्यवस्था आवश्यक रूप से करें।

Hindi translation of "M.S.Dhoni, who won two World Cups for India, announces his retirement - BSNLEU salutes the hero."

भारत को 2 विश्वकप दिलाने वाले एम एस धोनी ने रिटायरमेंट की घोषणा की- BSNLEU इस हीरो को सलाम करता है..


भारतीय क्रिकेट टीम को नई ऊंचाइयों पर ले जाने वाले डायनामिक क्रिकेटर महेंद्र सिंह धोनी ने अंतर्राष्ट्रीय क्रिकेट से अपने रिटायरमेंट की घोषणा की।


इस "कैप्टन कूल" के कुशल नेतृत्व में भारत ने 2 वर्ल्ड कप जीते हैं। धोनी का रिटायरमेंट अवश्यम्भावी था, क्योंकि वे अब 39 वर्ष के हो चुके हैं। किन्तु फिर भी जिस तरीके से बगैर किसी बिदाई के वे रिटायर हुए हैं, वह काफी निराशाजनक है।  

एम एस धोनी ने अपना अंतिम मैच जुलाई 2019 में वर्ल्ड कप के सेमी फाइनल में खेला था। उसके बाद उन्हें दरकिनार कर दिया गया। उन्हें, उसके बाद, खेलने का कोई मौका नही दिया गया। इसकी वजह क्या है ? 

जुलाई, 2019 के आसपास झारखंड विधान सभा का चुनाव अभियान अपने चरम पर था। भाजपा, जो कि राज्य में सत्ता में थी, बेहद अलोकप्रिय हो चुकी थी और उसके चुनाव जीतने की कोई संभावनाएं नही थी। ऐसे में, अपनी जीत के लिए, BJP ने झारखंड की माटी के लाल (“the son of the soil”) एम एस धोनी को साधने की कोशिश की। उन्होंने झारखंड चुनाव में BJP के पक्ष में प्रचार करने के लिए एम एस धोनी को मनाने की हर तरह से कोशिश की।

दिनांक 07.07.2019 के अंक में डेक्कन क्रॉनिकल ने खबर प्रकाशित की, कि BJP अध्यक्ष अमित शाह ने मंत्री पीयूष गोयल, BJP के राष्ट्रीय महासचिव सरोज पांडेय और दिल्ली BJP के अध्यक्ष मनोज तिवारी के साथ एम एस धोनी से उनके घर पर मुलाकात की। जाहिर है, यह मुलाकात, एम एस धोनी को झारखंड चुनाव अभियान के लिए मनाने के लिए की गई थी। 

अक्टूबर, 2019 में अमित शाह के बेटे जय शाह BCCI के सेक्रेटरी के रूप में नियुक्त किए गए। इसके बावजूद भी, एम एस धोनी, क्रिकेट जगत में अपनी मेहनत के बूते हासिल प्रतिष्ठा को झारखंड विधान सभा के चुनाव में जीत के लिए BJP द्वारा भुनाए जाने हेतु सहमत नही हुए। अंततः, BJP की चुनाव में पराजय हुई और उसे सत्ता से बेदखल कर दिया गया।

यह वजह है, जिसकी वजह से भारतीय क्रिकेट के महान कप्तान, एम एस धोनी की उपेक्षा की जाती रही और उन्हें उस गरिमा के साथ बिदाई नही दी गई जिसके वें हकदार हैं। बहरहाल, भारत के लोग, भारतीय क्रिकेट में रोमांच निर्मित करने के लिए, इस महान खिलाड़ी और कप्तान के सदैव शुक्रगुजार रहेंगे।

Anti-BSNL policies of the governments that came to power at the Centre are responsible for BSNL's crisis.

Recently, the spokesperson for Congress Party, Randeep Singh Surjewala has blamed the Modi government for the financial woes of BSNL. In reply to this, Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon'ble Minister of State for Communications has stated that BSNL and MTNL, are suffering due to decisions taken under the UPA regime. What Shri Manoj Sinha says is correct. At the same time what Shri Randeep Singh Surjewala said is also perfectly correct. The AUAB has been accusing that BSNL is in a financial crisis today, only because of the anti-BSNL policies adopted by the successive governments that came to power at the Centre. The AUAB has been maintaining that the employees of BSNL are in no way connected with BSNL's present financial condition. What Shri Randeep Singh Surjewala and Shri Manoj Sinha have said, have proved this.

Utter confusion prevailing in BSNL – AUAB decides to launch a 3 day Relay Hunger Strike from 20th November, 2019, to protect the interests of BSNL, employees and the VRS optees..

A meeting of the AUAB was held yesterday the 14.11.2019. General Secretaries / representatives of BSNLEU, NFTE, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, FNTO, BSNL MS, SNATTA, BSNL ATM and BSNL OA, participated. The meeting expressed it's serious concern that the Management has not taken any step for the payment of October salary. Employees are facing untold miseries due to the non-remittance of the recoveries made from their salaries for the past six months. Further, the meeting expressed it’s deep anguish about the inability of the BSNL Management to start 4G service promptly, even though government has already decided to allot 4G spectrum.


In the name of VRS, employees are being sent home massively under pressure and duress. In reality, it has become an FRS (Forced Retirement Scheme). Employees are being continuously threatened, that their retirement age would be reduced to 58 years. 3rd Pay Revision, when implemented retrospectively, and pension revision, have become a big question mark for the VRS optees.


A VRS optee can get Pension Commutation only when he attains 60 years of age. However, as per the existing rules, a retiree has to apply for pension commutation within one year of his retirement. Otherwise, he has to undergo medical examination. This issue is going to create a very big problem for all the VRS optees.


If a VRS optee dies before attaining 60 years of age, then his family will not get the benefit of pension commutation. This will cause a massive loss to the family of the VRS optees.


Without sorting out all these issues, the employees are being forced to opt for VRS. After this massive VRS, how the workload will be coped with, or what will be the structure of the Company? Management is not bothered to discuss the road map on all these issues in advance with the unions and associations. They are only interested in retrenching the employees massively.

The AUAB meeting, after thoroughly discussing all the above issues, has decided to organise a 3 day Relay Hunger Strike  on 20th, 21st and 22nd November, 2019, at the Corporate Office, circle and district levels, demanding settlement of all these issues. All circle and district secretaries are requested to organise this hunger strike programme effectively, in coordination with the other constituents of the AUAB. Detailed circular of the AUAB will follow.

Why Rs.13,000 crore should not be recovered from Reliance Jio? – asks the Supreme Court.

Reliance Jio has acquired 47.50 Mhz spectrum in the 800 Mhz band from Reliance Communications. Further, Jio is also sharing spectrum with Reliance Communications in 15 circles.

On August 14th, the Supreme Court raised the question why Rs.13,000 crore should not be recovered from Reliance Jio, towards the spectrum it has acquired / using from Reliance Communications.

What is the definition of "Predatory Pricing" according to the TRAI.

In the wake of leading private telecom companies like Airtel, Idea and Vodafone, complaining against the predatory pricing by Reliance Jio, the TRAI has issued definition for predatory pricing. This definition is given by making an amendment to the "Telecommunication Tariff order".

According to this, a tariff will be considered predatory, if in a “relevant market”, a telecom operator with over 30 per cent market share, offers services at a price which is below the average “variable cost”, with a view to reduce competition or eliminate the competitors in the “relevant market”, as per an amendment made by TRAI in the Telecommunication Tariff order.

Under the new rules, TRAI will impose financial disincentive of up to Rs 50 lakh per circle on operators if their service rates are found to be predatory in nature.
