BSNLEU has long been pressurising the Corporate Office to issue notification for holding the JTO LICE under 50% internal quota. However, the same was being delayed, since the Establishment Branch had sought the views of the Personnel Branch on this matter, in the wake of the BSNL Board’s decision to implement the CPSE Cadre Hierarchy. BSNLEU insisted with the Director (HR) and Sr.GM (Estt.) that Corporate Office has to conduct the JTO LICE, for the vacancies that have already arisen under 50% internal quota, irrespective of whether the CPSE Cadre Hierarchy is implemented or not. Due to the continuous pressure exerted on the Management, Corporate Office has now set the ball rolling for holding the JTO LICE. The Establishment Branch of the Corporate Office had given it’s approval for holding the exam vide letter no.5-1/LICE/2018-Estt-IV dated 17.09.2018, based on which the Recruitment Branch vide letter no.12-2/2018-Rectt. dated 26.09.2018, has written to the CGMs, directing them to provide the vacancy position to the Corporate Office by 05.10.2018. BSNLEU will ensure that the examination is conducted at the earliest.
The Staff Side of the National Council has complained about the poor up-keep of the IQs throughout the country, and has demanded remedial measures. Corporate Office has called for an Action Taken Report.
Based on the agreement already reached between the Staff Side and the Management Side, BSNL Corporate Office has issued letter for Change of Designations to the left out Non-Executive cadres. However, the agreement reached in the Committee, in respect of left out Group D cadres, in the pay scales from NE-1 to NE-3, has not been agreed by the Management Committee, despite BSNLEU’s taking up this issue strongly with the CMD BSNL. In respect of these left out Group D cadres, once again discussion will take place in the Joint Committee for Change of Designations.
