Immunity from transfers – Corporate Office issues instruction to the CGMs.

Serious violations of the facility of immunity from transfers, are being reported from some  circles. CHQ is promptly taking up those issues with the Corporate Office. For example, the District Secretary of BSNLEU, Vadodara, was recently transferred out of the district. The transfer has since been settled, at the intervention of the Corporate Office, based on the complaint from the CHQ of BSNLEU. These mischieves are being done by some circle administrations, utilising a particular provision of the Corporate Office order, which states, “immunity from transfer is subject to administrative convenience”.  Hence, the Corporate Office has issued an instruction to all the CGMs, giving suitable instruction.

BSNLEU is seeking legal remedy against freezing of three instalments of IDA to the Non-Executives.

As regards, the freezing of three IDAs, falling due on 01.10.2020, 01.01.2021 and 01.04.2021, the DPE has categorically mentioned that the freezing of IDA is applicable only to the Executives and to the Non-Unionised Supervisors of the CPSEs. The Hon’ble Kerala High Court, as well as the Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka have passed orders stating that, the IDA freezing is only applicable to the Executives and Non-Unionised Supervisors. In view of this, BSNLEU has already written to the CMD BSNL, demanding that, the IDA instalment which has become due from 01.10.2020, should be paid immediately. Further, BSNLEU is also exploring the option of seeking legal remedy. The CHQ has already directed Com.Santhosh Kumar, Circle Secretary, BSNLEU, Kerala, for taking the necessary initiative. This is in view of the fact that, the first order, against IDA freezing for the Non-Executives, is passed by the Hon’ble Kerala High Court.
