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.
