Collection of "Contract Workers Relief Fund" and wild allegations..

On 25.04.2020, a website updating has been made on the website of Telecom Officers Association (BSNL), wherein it is stated as follows:- 

 

“Most of so called Communist Associations are collecting funds for helping contract workers and now all funds collected so far has contributed it to Kerala Government Relief Funds.” 

 

In BSNL, only BSNLEU is collecting relief fund for the contract workers. The fund collected is being fully utilised for providing emergency relief to the contract workers, in the form of food materials. All the details are being updated on the website in a transparent manner. Under these circumstances, it is extremely surprising to note that, the TOA BSNL has accused that the funds collected for contract workers, is being given to the Kerala government. No person / organisation, having common sense, will make such an accusation. We request the TOA BSNL to have some minimum decency and refrain from making such 'wild allegations' on it's website. We will be compelled to reply in the appropriate manner, if such wild allegations are continued to be made.

Hindi translation of "Corporate media trying to fool the people on the 4G tender issue."

BSNL के 4 G टेंडर मुद्दे पर लोगों को बेवकूफ बनाने की कोशिश कर रहा कॉर्पोरेट मीडिया। 

कॉर्पोरेट मीडिया (इकोनॉमिक टाइम्स दिनांक 06 जुलाई, 2020) द्वारा इस समाचार को प्रमुखता से फैलाया जा रहा है कि, टेक महिंद्रा 4 जी उपकरणों की आपूर्ति के लिए BSNL के टेंडर में बोली लगाएगा।  यह भी बताया जा रहा है कि, टेक महिंद्रा BSNLको 4 जी उपकरणों की आपूर्ति करने में, ITI के साथ भागीदारी करेगा।  इसमें कोई शक नहीं है कि, टेक महिंद्रा भारत में 5 वीं सबसे बड़ी सॉफ्टवेयर कंपनी है।  लेकिन, यह भी सच है कि इनके पास 4 G उपकरणों के निर्माण की तकनीक उपलब्ध नहीं है।  हम यह भी जानते हैं कि, ITI केवल एक एजेंट के रूप में काम कर रहा है, कमीशन कमाने के लिए, बहुराष्ट्रीय कंपनियों (MNC) से दूरसंचार उपकरण खरीदने और BSNL को आपूर्ति करने के लिए। ITI के पास मोबाइल उपकरणों के निर्माण करने की अपनी कोई तकनीक नहीं है।

 

इन परिस्थितियों में, कॉर्पोरेट मीडिया केवल आम जनता को मूर्ख बनाने की कोशिश कर रहा है।  ऐसी गलत खबर क्यो फैलाई जा रही है तो , सिर्फ केवल BSNL के 4 G टेंडर को रद्द करने की सरकार की कार्रवाई को सही ठहराने के लिए । लेकिन यह निर्णय गलत था आज उसे सही करने में सरकारी तंत्र के साथ मीडिया आ गया है।  सब कॉरपोरेट मीडिया को इन गलत चीजों से बचना चाहिए और भारत के जनता को सही सही जानकारी देना चाहिए कि किस भारतीय कंपनी ने 4 G तकनीक (टेक्नोलॉजी) को विकसित किया है और वह 4 G मोबाइल नेटवर्क को चालू करने में BSNL  की आवश्यकताओं को पूरा करने में सक्षम है।

Hindi translation of "BSNLEU initiates legal action against five persons for tarnishing the image of the Union and it’s General Secretary."

यूनियन और यूनियन के महासचिव की छवि खराब करने वाले पांच व्यक्तियों के खिलाफ BSNLEU द्वारा कानूनी कार्यवाही की पहल...
सरकार द्वारा BSNL विरोधी और निजी समर्थक नीतियों के निरंतर रूप से अपनाए जाने से BSNL गहरे संकट में धकेल दिया गया है। BSNL की यूनियन्स और एसोसिएशन्स, BSNL को बचाने और साथ ही उसके कर्मचारियों के हितों की रक्षा के लिए लगातार संघर्ष कर रहे हैं। इस दिशा में, कई हड़ताल और अन्य स्वरूपों के आंदोलन, यूनियन्स और एसोसिएशन्स द्वारा आयोजित किए गए हैं। किन्तु, BSNL की वित्तीय स्थिति बेहद गंभीर हो चुकी है और कर्मचारियों को समय पर वेतन भी प्राप्त नही हो रहा है। कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को विगत 10 माह से वेजेस का भुगतान नही हुआ है। इस निराशापूर्ण स्थिति का लाभ उठाते हुए, कुछ शरारती तत्व बार बार ट्रेड यूनियन्स और उसके लीडर्स की छवि खराब का प्रयास कर रहे हैं। ट्रेड यूनियन्स और उसके लीडर्स ऐसे तत्वों के लिए एक आसान लक्ष्य हैं। अभी हाल ही में,  BSNLEU और उसके महासचिव कॉम पी. अभिमन्यु की छवि खराब करने के लिए 2 ऑडियो क्लिप्स सोशल मीडिया में वायरल किए जा चुके हैं। BSNLEU विरोधी ताकतों ने इन ऑडियो क्लिप्स को कर्मचारियों के बीच व्यापक रूप से प्रसारित किया है। BSNLEU के ऑल इंडिया सेन्टर ने इस मुद्दे पर चर्चा की और निर्णय लिया कि इन ऑडियो क्लिप्स बनाने वाले और कर्मचारियों के बीच व्यापक रूप से  अपमानजनक टिप्पणियों के साथ ऑडियो क्लिप्स प्रसारित करने वाले अन्य चार व्यक्तियों के खिलाफ अवमानना का प्रकरण दर्ज किया जाए। तदनुसार, इन 5 व्यक्तियों के खिलाफ दिल्ली के तीस हजारी कोर्ट में अवमानना का प्रकरण दर्ज करने हेतु कार्यवाही की गई है। इन सभी पांचों व्यक्तियों को नोटिस जारी कर दिए गए हैं। इनसे जवाब प्राप्त होने के पश्चात प्रकरण दर्ज (file) कर दिया जाएगा।

Corona Virus Disease - two governments and two different approaches..

The Central Government has frozen the DA of it's employees and pensioners, for a period of one and half years, i.e., from 01.01.2020 to 01.07.2021.

 

The Kerala government has decided to defer 6 days’ pay of it's employees for 5 months, i.e., from April to August, 2020.

 

Whether, the actions of the Central government and the Kerala government are one and the same? Let us see.

 

  1. As per the decision of the Central Government, the DA, payable to the employees and pensioners is frozen for a period of 1 ½ years, i.e., from 01.01.2020 to 01.07.2021. It means, this money is taken away once for all and will not be paid back to the employees and pensioners. It is nothing but grabbing money from the pockets of the employees and pensioners.

 

Whereas, the Kerala government has only deferred the payment. In it’s letter, dated 23.04.2020, the Kerala government has categorically mentioned that, this money will be repaid to the employees on a later date.

 

Thus, the actions taken by the Central Government and the Kerala Government, are not the same.

 

  1. Pensioners survive only from the meagre pension that they are getting. However, Central Government did not show any mercy to the pensioners. Their pension is also reduced for one and half years. This is a very big injustice.

 

At the same time, the Kerala government did not touch the pensioners and thereby avoided causing any hardship to them.

 

  1. Very importantly, before taking this decision, the Kerala government has consulted the trade unions. The NGO Union of Kerala, which is having 80% of the employees as it’s members, has given it's consent for the deferment of the pay. It is relevant to mention here that, in 2018 also, when Kerala was affected by the unprecedented floods, 80% of the Kerala State Government employees have donated one month's salary to the Chief Minister's Relief Fund. 

 

However, the Central Government did not bother at all, to consult the trade unions, before freezing the DA. It has arbitrarily frozen the DA for one and half years.

 

  1. Further, as per the order of the Kerala government, the salary of the employees, who receive salary below Rs.20,000/- will not be deferred. But, the Central Government did not make any such distinction.

 

  1. There is a big difference between the central government and the government of a small state, like Kerala. The central government is having unlimited resources, at it’s disposal. But, it spends lakhs of crores of rupees for giving concessions to the big corporates.  For example, from 2014 onwards, the Central Government has written off Rs. 5.5 lakh crore bank loans as bad debt. These loans are mostly taken by the big corporates. Further, in October, 2019, the Central Government has reduced the Corporate Tax, as a result of which, the big corporates were benefitted to the extent of Rs.1.45 lakh crore. At the same time, for fighting the Corona Virus Disease, it grabs money from the pockets of the employees and pensioners and hit them in their stomachs.

 

Kerala is a small state, with very limited resources. It is the first state, which was hit by the Corona Virus Disease. Still, it allotted Rs. 20,000 crore to tackle the disease. Especially, it took care of the poor people and provided all helps to them. The manner in which the   Corona Disease is kept under control in Kerala and how the government has taken care of the poor people affected due to the lockdown, are being appreciated by the whole world. 

 

Thus, action of the central government and the action of the Kerala state government are incomparable.

Finance Ministry “arm-twists” IRS officers, for giving suggestions to impose higher tax on the rich people.

We have already updated yesterday that, some IRS (Indian Revenue Service) officers have given suggestions to the government, regarding mobilisation of funds to manage the crisis created by the COVID-19. The suggestions, titled FORCE (Fiscal Options and Response to COVID-19), has been given to the government.  We have also reported that the Finance Ministry had expressed it's anger towards the IRS officers, for making such suggestions. Now, it is reported that, the Finance Ministry has charge sheeted 3 IRS officers and has also instituted an enquiry against 50 other IRS officers, for violation of the Conduct Rules. BSNLEU strongly condemns this high handed and authoritarian move of the government. The suggestions given by the IRS officers have only suggested that more taxes should be imposed on the wealthy and rich people. There is nothing wrong in this suggestion and it has been made in the interest of the nation and the people. Hence, the government should immediately withdraw the charge sheet issued to 3 IRS officers and also drop the enquiry instituted against 50 IRS officers.

BSNL’s inability to launch 4G service is nothing but total failure of the BSNL Management.

Cancellation of BSNL’s tender, to procure 4G equipments is a very big set-back for the revival of BSNL.  At the same time, BSNL could have very well launched it’s 4G services, even without procuring new 4G equipments. This has not happened only because of the total failure of the BSNL Management. BSNL is already having 49,300 BTSs which are 4G compatible. All these BTSs can be upgraded into 4G BTSs. In addition to this BSNL could have procured another 15,000 BTSs, by issuing add on order to the phase VIII-4 tender. Thus, the BSNL Management could have got ready with 64,300 BTSs, with which BSNL’s Pan India 4G service could have been rolled out. It is a big misfortune that this has not happened only because of the total failure on the part of the BSNL Management.
