(1)   IDA payment as per Court order.

As regards, IDA payment to the Non-Executives, as per the order of the Hon’ble Kerala High Court, discussion was held by the General Secretary with the CMD BSNL, yesterday. In continuation of that, the General Secretary discussed the matter with Director (HR) today. As per the commitment given by the CMD BSNL yesterday, the Director (HR) stated today that, letter is being written to the DoT, seeking the DoT’s view on the matter. The General Secretary told the Director (HR) that the Union would be compelled to file a contempt petition in the court, if the order of the Hon’ble Kerala High Court is not implemented, within a reasonable time.

 

(2)   Providing password to the Non-Executives in the E-Office set up.

The General Secretary handed over his letter to the Director (HR) on this matter. He bitterly complaint that, the Non-Executives are being sidelined in the E-Office set up. However, the Director (HR) assured that the Non-Executives would not be ignored and also told that, 10% of the Non-Executives are already provided with password and e-mail ID. After discussion, the Director (HR) assured that, up to 25% of the Non-Executives would be provided with password and e-mail ID.

 

 

(3)   Issuing Presidential Orders to the DoT recruited Non-Executives, who are appointed on or after 01.10.2000.

The Hon’ble Kerala High Court and the Hon’ble Rajasthan High Court have already given direction that the Non-Executives who are recruited by the DoT, but were appointed on or after 01.10.2000, should be issued with Presidential Orders. However, against these judgments, the BSNL Management has gone on appeal in the Supreme Court. The case is lingering on for a long time in the Supreme Court. In today’s meeting, the General Secretary insisted that, the BSNL Management should take the initiative for quick disposal of the case in Supreme Court. The Director (HR) assured that necessary action would be taken in this regard.

 

(4)   Wage Revision.

The General Secretary demanded that meeting of the Wage Negotiation Committee should resume at the earliest. He pointed out that a large number of employees are in stagnation and that Wage Revision alone is the solution. However, the Director (HR) remained non-committal.

 

(5)   Holding of the LICEs.

Once again, the attention of the Director (HR) was drawn to the inordinate delay in holding the LICEs. The CMD BSNL has already assured that, the process of restructuring would be completed by April, 2021. The General Secretary insisted upon the Director (HR) that, the process for holding the LICEs should be initiated now itself, so that the LICEs can be conducted immediately after restructuring process is completed.
