The Corporate Office has already issued the model notification for holding the JE LICE under 50% quota. In that letter, it is stated that the vacancies are to be calculated for the period upto 31.03.2017. At the same time, the cut off date for determining the eligibility conditions of the candidates is fixed as 1st July, 2016. BSNLEU has already demanded that the cut off date should be changed as 1st July, 2017. In this connection, BSNLEU has once again written to the Corporate Management.
Due to the continuous efforts taken by BSNLEU, the Corporate Office has already announced vide letter no.250-22/2013-Estt.III dated 28.07.2016 and letter no.9-1/2016-Rectt. dated 05.04.2017 that, for the examinations within Non-Executive cadres, the qualifying marks for SC/ST candidates shall be 20% in each section. Further, in the above two letters, no minimum aggregate mark, to be taken by the SC/ST candidates, has been laid down. However, in the model notification issued by the Corporate Office for holding the JE LICE under 50% quota, the minimum mark to be scored by SC/ST candidates in each section is fixed as 20% and the aggregate mark to be taken, is fixed as 30%. This is a clear violation of the Corporate Office decisions already taken on the matter.
Further, based on the demand raised by BSNLEU in the National Council, for the implementation of the DoT order on reservation to SC/ST employees in internal examinations conducted in BSNL, Corporate Office has already issued instruction, vide letter no.9-2/2016-Rectt. dated 28.08.2017, stating that the qualifying marks for SC employees will be 20% and for ST employees, it will be 15%. In that letter also, no stipulation has been laid down for aggregate marks, since no such provision is there in the original DoT order. Thus, the condition laid down in the model notification is violation of BSNL and DoT orders. Inserting a condition for minimum aggregate marks to be taken by SC/ST employees, will harm their interests. Hence, BSNLEU has written to the GM(Estt.) to make necessary corrections to the model notification.
After the implementation of the ERP system, CHQ quota is being sent to the All India Union, in bulk, by the circle administrations. In this process, the CHQ is not able to know the quota received from each district union of BSNLEU. In the absence of this information, CHQ will not be in a position to allot the delegates to the district unions, for the All India Conference, which is a constitutional requirement. Hence, CHQ is repeatedly giving letter to the Corporate Office, demanding to instruct the circle administrations, for sending monthly statement, indicating the district wise quota particulars. This is being done presently by the Madhya Pradesh Circle administration. If one circle administration can do, why not the other circle administrations also do that. Based on BSNLEU’s letter, the Corporate Office has issued instructions to all the CGMs. All Circle Unions of BSNLEU are requested to immediately to take it up with their respective circle administrations, for sending the monthly statement to the CHQ.
Corporate Office has issued letter that all VRS options, as existed in the ERP portal at the closing time and date of VRS option shall be treated as final. It means, any withdrawal of VRS option after 03.12.2019 will not be accepted by the Management.
