डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज के, पत्र व्यवहार हेतु वर्तमान पते प्रेषित करने बाबद- सर्किल सेक्रेटरीज से त्वरित कार्यवाही का अनुरोध....

CHQ द्वारा दिल्ली में पैम्फलेट्स व पोस्टर्स छपवा कर सीधे डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज को स्पीड पोस्ट के माध्यम से प्रेषित किए जा रहे हैं। किन्तु, यह पाया गया है कि अपूर्ण या त्रुटिपूर्ण पतों की वजह से कई डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज को प्रेषित पैम्फलेट्स व पोस्टर्स CHQ को वापस हो गए हैं। इससे CHQ का अनावश्यक आर्थिक नुकसान भी हुआ है।

अतः, CHQ द्वारा सभी सर्किल सेक्रेटरीज से, डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज के सही पतों की सूची प्रेषित करने का अनुरोध किया गया है।

अभी तक,  केवल केरल, तेलंगाना, NE-1 और कोलकाता टेलीफोन्स द्वारा ही यह सूची प्रेषित की गई है। अतः, अन्य शेष सभी सर्किल सेक्रेटरीज से भी अनुरोध है कि वें डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज के वर्तमान पतों की सूची प्रेषित करें। चूंकि, CHQ द्वारा 2/3 दिनों में आम हड़ताल से संबंधित एक और पैम्फलेट भेजा जाना है, इस संबंध में शेष सर्किल सेक्रेटरीज त्वरित कार्यवाही करें।

BSNL Management amends CDA Rules to retire employees on completion of 50/55 years of age or on completion of 30 years of service.

The BSNL Management has amended the CDA rules and has incorporated the provision to retire the employees on the attainment of 50/55 years of age, or on completion of 30 years of service, by giving 3 months' notice or by paying 3 months' salary. 

 

BSNLEU vehemently opposes this Rule and demands it's withdrawal. This rule is a part of the draconian provision implemented by the British rulers. The Modi government is vigorously implementing this rule. The Central Trade Unions have demanded that this Rule should be abolished and it is included as one of the demands for the General Strike, to be held on 26.11.2020.

Hindi translation of "Conspiracy deepens to kill BSNL."

BSNL को खत्म करने का षड्यंत्र गहरा रहा है..

BSNL के 4G टेंडर के निरस्तीकरण के पश्चात सरकार द्वारा BSNL के 4G की शुरुआत हेतु रोडमैप के लिए सुझाव देने हेतु जो समिति गठित की गई थी,उसके द्वारा, प्राप्त जानकारी अनुसार, अपनी अनुशंसा प्रस्तुत कर दी गई है। उक्त समिति द्वारा दिए गए सुझाव स्पष्ट रूप से  प्रदर्शित करते हैं कि सरकार 4G की शुरुआत में विलंब कर BSNL को एक बीमार कंपनी में परिवर्तित करना चाहती है। 

मीडिया की रिपोर्ट्स के अनुसार, DoT कमिटी ने, सिस्टम इंटेग्रेटर द्वारा BSNL का 4G नेटवर्क निर्मित करने व संचालित (manage) करने की अनुशंसा की है। “सिस्टम इंटेग्रेटर” एक भारतीय कंपनी होगी, जिसे विभिन्न वेंडर्स से हार्डवेयर और सॉफ्टवेयर प्राप्त कर उनको असेम्बल करने की जिम्मेदारी दी जाएगी। 
 
यह जानना बेहद जरूरी है कि सभी प्राइवेट टेलीकॉम ऑपरेटर्स द्वारा टर्नकी कॉन्ट्रैक्ट के जरिए सिर्फ एक वेंडर द्वारा अपना नेटवर्क निर्मित किया गया है। “टर्नकी कॉन्ट्रैक्ट” के अनुसार केवल एक ही वेंडर, मैनेज्ड सर्विस एग्रीमेंट के तहत नेटवर्क संचालित करेगा। किन्तु, “सिस्टम इंटेग्रेटर” मॉडल में एक से अधिक वेंडर शामिल रहेंगे, जिससे तकनीकी समस्याएं निर्मित होंगी।

“सिस्टम इंटेग्रेटर मॉडल” को लेकर  ET Telecom अखबार ने अपने 12 अक्टूबर, 2020 के अंक में निम्न समाचार प्रकाशित किया है:-

" BSNL के 4G नेटवर्क के निर्माण हेतु घरेलू वेंडर (home-grown vendors) को प्राथमिकता देते हुए , “सिस्टम इंटेग्रेटर मॉडल” को अपनाने के किसी भी प्रयास के परिणाम स्वरूप, इंडस्ट्री एक्सपर्ट्सऔर एनालिस्ट के अनुसार, कीमतें प्रभावित होंगी और मार्किट में प्रतिस्पर्धा करने में कंपनी (BSNL) की क्षमताएं आहत होंगी। उनका कहना है कि 4G नेटवर्क, जिसमें रेडियो और कोर प्रोडक्ट्स शामिल है, के निर्माण में सिस्टम इंटेग्रेटर (SI) मॉडल और स्थानीय प्लेयर्स की निपुणता अभी तक व्यापक तौर पर साबित नही हुई है। 

इन सभी से यह परिलक्षित हो रहा है कि BSNL को खत्म करने का षड्यंत्र गहराता जा रहा है। इसे रोकने के लिए, सभी यूनियन्स और एसोसिएशंस को एक साथ आना चाहिए।

Conspiracy deepens to kill BSNL.

The committee that has been formed by the government, in the aftermath of the cancellation of BSNL’s 4G tender, for suggesting the roadmap for BSNL’s 4G service launching, has reportedly submitted it’s recommendations. The suggestions of the Committee clearly indicate the government wants to convert BSNL into a sick company, by delaying it’s 4G launching.

 

As per media reports, the DoT Committee has recommended that a system integrator will build and manage BSNL’s 4G network. The “system integrator” will be an Indian Company, which will be given the responsibility of procuring the hardware and software from different vendors and to assemble them.

 

It is important to note that, all the private telecom operators have built their networks by a single vendor, through turnkey contracts. According to the “turnkey contract”, a single vendor will manage the networks, under Managed Services Agreement. However, in the “system integrator” model, multiple vendors will be involved, which will lead to technical problems. 

 

As regards the “system integrator model”, the ET Telecom has published the following news item on 12th October, 2020:-

"Any move to adopt the system integrator model, with a preference to home-grown vendors, for building BSNL’s 4G network, will result in cost inefficiencies, hurting the telco’s capability to compete in the market, industry experts and analysts said. They said that the System Integrator (SI) model and expertise of local players in building a 4G network, including both radio and core products, are largely unproven.

 

All these only shows that the conspiracy to kill BSNL, is deepening. All the unions and associations have to come together, to stop it.

CEC meeting of BSNLEU, being held online on 02.11.2020.

As has already been informed, the CEC meeting of BSNLEU, is being held online on 02nd November, 2020. The meeting is being held mainly to discuss and decide the steps to be taken to successfully organise the strike on 26th November, 2020.

Outsourcing of works through SLA agreements is a total failure – lakhs of BSNL’s landlines and broadband connections are getting surrendered every month – circle and district unions are directed to intervene.

In the name of reviving BSNL, the government and BSNL Management have retrenched 79,000 BSNL employees through the VRS. Together with this, the BSNL Management has also retrenched almost all the contract workers, through the outsourcing of works. After the retirement of 79,000 employees under the VRS, the necessity for retaining the contract workers became all the more important, to cope with the staff shortage. However, the BSNL Management retrenched the contract workers massively. The Management claimed that the SLA agreements, made with the private contractors, will help to maintain the services efficiently. 

 

However, the reality tells us something different. The retrenchment of 79,000 BSNL employees, as well as a large number of contract workers, has affected the maintenance of BSNL’s landlines and broadband connections very seriously. For example, 1.54 lakh connections have got disconnected in the month of July, 2020, alone. This has been reported in the ET Telecom dated 14th October, 2020. The blind outsourcing of works, through SLA contracts, has affected the services very badly. The trade unions and associations in BSNL cannot close their eyes to this reality. The mismanagement of the services has to be taken up.

 

In this direction, the AUAB, Aurangabad, has done a good job. They have discussed this issue in an in-depth manner and have submitted a memorandum to the GMTD, Aurangabad, wherein it is stated that the outsourcing model has failed totally. Further, they have pointed out that 2,700 landlines and 1,000 broadband connections were surrendered during the last 6 months alone. The AUAB, Aurangabad, has pointed out the steps that have to be taken by the Management, for the proper maintenance of the services.

 

CHQ requests that, all our circle and district unions, together with the AUAB, should raise this issue, with their respective circle and district administrations. The memorandum submitted by the AUAB, Aurangabad, is given hereunder, for the information of our circle and district secretaires.
