BSNLEU writes to the Member (Services), requesting to withdraw the direction given by the DoT to CMD BSNL, against the IDA arrears to the Non-Executives.

The IDA increase of the Non-Executives of BSNL, for the period from 01.10.2020 to 30.06.2021, has been wrongly frozen by the BSNL Management. BSNLEU filed a case in the Hon’ble Kerala High Court against this freezing of IDA. Based on this, the Hon’ble Court has directed the CMD BSNL to make payment of the IDA arrears. Under these circumstances, the DoT issued letter on 17.02.2021, directing the CMD BSNL not to make payment of the IDA arrears. Consequent to this, the IDA arrears has not been paid. BSNLEU has already written letter to the Secretary, Telecom, demanding to withdraw this direction. Once again, BSNLEU wrote a letter today, to the Member (Services), requesting him to withdraw the direction of the DoT, so that BSNL can make payment of the IDA arrears to the Non-Executives.

Why BSNL’s network connection is poor? – Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw, Hon’ble Minister for Communications say, it is because of UPA government.

BSNL Employees are being denied Wage Revision, based on the recommendation of the 3rd Pay Revision Committee. The AUAB has been demanding that, BSNL should be exempted from the affordability clause of the 3rd Pay Revision Committee. The AUAB has all along been telling the government that, BSNL became a loss making Company only because of the government policies and not because of the inefficiency of the employees. Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, the erstwhile Hon’ble Minister for Communications, had accused the UPA government for the financial crisis of BSNL. However, it is regrettable that, the government did not accept the pleadings of the AUAB to exempt BSNL from the affordability clause of the 3rd PRC. In this connection, an interesting debate has taken place in the Parliament yesterday. BJP’s Davengere MP, Shri G.M. Siddeshwara, raised a question as to why BSNL’s network connection was very poor. Replying to this question, Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw, Hon’ble Minister of Communications stated that, the bad condition of BSNL’s services is due to “certain political parties, during the UPA government, using BSNL as a cash cow”. The statement of the Hon’ble Minister for Communications, confirms the stand of the AUAB that, BSNL has gone into the financial crisis only due to the anti-BSNL measures of the government. When this being the fact, why the government is not exempting BSNL from the affordability clause of the 3rd PRC, so that BSNL employees could get Wage Revision?

पीडब्ल्यूडी आरक्षण 2022 के बाद की रिक्त स्थानों के लिए लागू किया जाएगा - प्रिंसिपल जनरल मैनेजर (Estt.), बीएसएनएल कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस ने महासचिव, BSNLEU को सूचित किया है। 

 

BSNLEU ने पहले ही बीएसएनएल प्रबंधन को पत्र लिखकर मांग की है कि स्पेशल जेटीओ एलआईसीई में पीडब्ल्यूडी आरक्षण लागू किया जाए।  साथी पी.अभिमन्यु, महासचिव ने आज श्री सौरभ त्यागी, प्रिंसिपल जनरल मैनेजर (Estt.), बीएसएनएल कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस के साथ इस मुद्दे पर चर्चा की। प्रिंसिपल जनरल मैनेजर (Estt.) ने उत्तर दिया कि बीएसएनएल प्रबंधन ने पीडब्ल्यूडी आरक्षण के कार्यान्वयन की तारीख के संबंध में डीओपीटी से स्पष्टीकरण मांगा है।  पीजीएम (Estt. ) ने आगे कहा कि, डीओपी&टी ने स्पष्ट किया है कि पीडब्ल्यूडी आरक्षण केवल आदेश जारी होने की तारीख से लागू किया जाना चाहिए न कि पूर्वव्यापी रूप से।  डीओपीटी के इस स्पष्टीकरण के अनुसार, पीडब्ल्यूडी आरक्षण केवल 2022 से रिक्त स्थानों के लिए लागू किया जाएगा।  चूंकि 2021-22 के रिक्त स्थानों  के लिए विशेष जेटीओ एलआईसीई आयोजित की जा रही है, इसलिए इस परीक्षा में पीडब्ल्यूडी आरक्षण लागू नहीं किया जाएगा यह प्रिंसिपल जनरल मैनेजर (Estt.) ने  सूचित किया है ।

Non-implementation of monthly union subscription at Rs.70/- per member – CHQ appeals to the circle secretaries to take corrective steps.

Nearly one year and 3 months ago, the Corporate Office issued letter to the CGMs, giving instruction for the deduction of BSNLEU’s monthly subscription at the revised rate of Rs.70/- per month. However, it is disturbing to note that, in some circles, still BSNLEU’s monthly subscription is being deducted at the old rate of Rs.45/- per month. This is violation of the decision of the all India Conference. This will create problem in the allotment of delegates in the next All India Conference, in respect of the circles which are not collecting subscription at the revised rate. Hence, all circle secretaries are requested to immediately ensure that, union subscription is strictly deducted at the rate of Rs.70/- per member.

Implementation of EPF in respect of officials whose POs are cancelled – BSNLEU writes to the Director (HR).

The Presidential Orders issued to a section of the officials are cancelled by the DoT, due to one reason or the other. GPF has been implemented to all these officials. However, after cancellation of the POs, these officials are eligible only for EPF and not GPF. However, GPF is being continued even in respect of the officials whose POs are cancelled. This is not correct. This will create big problems in the settlement of the terminal benefits of these officials, when they retire. BSNLEU is continuously taking up such cases with the Corporate Office. BSNLEU has written letter to the Director (HR) today, demanding implementation of EPF to 73 officials of Odisha circle, whose POs have been cancelled.
