Meeting with Dir(PSU) DoT:- GS, President, AGS (DR) met Dir(PSU) DoT and discussed regarding.

a) Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit: We requested Dir(PSU) for the implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit as recommended by BSNL Board. We also pleaded that administrative ministry can consider implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL as per its recommendations on affordability clause. However, the reply from DPE in this regard has also been received in DoT long before. Dir(PSU) mentioned that the DPE reply has been given cognizance by all the Sr. Officers in DoT but further action is yet to be taken. It seems that the work regarding preparation of Cabinet note for relaxation in the affordability clause has not yet started in DoT. This a serious situation and all the Unions and Associations of BSNL Should immediately decide their strategies to impress upon DoT for the settlement of this issue otherwise the issue will linger on in DoT.

b) Reply to BSNL on CPSU cadre hierarchy: Dir (PSU) confirmed that Jt. Secy. (Admn) Dot being the Govt. Nominee Director of BSNL Board has sent his observations to BSNL for the rectification in the CPSU Cadre hierarchy proposal before its placement in the next BSNL Board meeting which scheduled to be held on 28thMay 2018.

Successfully organised “Lunch Hour demonstrations” today against operationalization of the Subsidiary Tower Company:

AIBSNLEA extend sincere gratitude and thanks all the comrades who actively participated in the Lunch Hour demonstrations through out the country and implemented it successfully. During Lunch Hour the representatives of Unions and Associations of BSNL along with their members reached in front of Sanchar Bhawan, Ashoka Road, New Delhi and organized very effective demonstration. Huge police and Rapid Action Force personnel were enforced by DoT Administration to contain the demonstrators.  Delhi Police locked the doors of BSNL Corporate Office and did not allowed BSNL employees to come out from the Bharat Sanchar Bhawan during lunch hours so that they do not participate in lunch hour demonstration at Sanchar Bhawan. Police threatened all the leaders to arrest in case they go at Sanchar Bhawan and demonstrate since Section 144 of Cr PC was imposed in the vicinity of Sanchar Bhawan. Despite of all these threats the leaders along with their members succeed in reaching to Sanchar Bhawan and hold effective demonstration in the presence of huge police and RAF personnel. After some time police force took all the demonstrators in police custody and detained them in Parliament Police Station for two hours. After necessary police formalities against the leaders i.e. Com. Prahlad Rai, Com. G.L. Jogi, Com. C. SIngh, Com. Abhimanyu and Com. Suresh Kumar they released all the demonstrators at about 14.30 hrs. In this way a history has been created by organizing demonstration in front of Sanchar Bhawan for the first time after the formation of BSNL. We congratulate all the participants. AIBSNLEA CHQ Office Bearers, Circle Secretaries stationed at New Delhi along with their office bearers and members very actively participated in the demonstration at Sanchar Bhawan.

At 15.00 Hrs all the Central leaders of All Unions and Associations of BSNL hold a meeting and congratulated the BSNBL employees for their active participation in the demonstration. Further, decisions were taken to continuously protest against the arbitrary decision of Government for formation of BSNL’s Tower Subsidiary Company. Future course of agitation programs are decided as under:

1. One day Dharana on 12.04.2018 at BSNL Corporate Office, Circle and SSA Head Quarters to protest against the Government decision in making BSNL’s Tower Subsidiary operational.

Hon’ble PB CAT New Delhi issues orders in OA No. 2649 quashing DOT Order dated 5/7/2017:

Congratulations! AIBSNLEA’s consistent efforts yielded results in getting delivered a favourable judgment by the Hon’ble PBCAT New Delhi for quashing the DoT letter dated 05.07.2017 which rescinded grant of an extra increment on post based promotion under EPP. Hon’ble PB CAT New Delhi has issued orders in OA No. 2649 quashing DOT Order dated 5/7/2017. While writing the judgment Hon’ble PBCAT has mentioned that The applicants have basically prayed for retention of para I.II (v) of the EPP (Annexure A-2, which has been duly approved by the Government according to its policy. There has been no policy change as such in the Government in regard to the service conditions of the BSNL employees. The controversy has arisen only on account of P&T audit unnecessarily trying to compare financial upgradation under the EPP with that under the MACP, not realizing that these two schemes are applicable to two separate set of employees.

In the conspectus of the discussions in the foregoing paras as well as considering the background of introduction of EPP, I am of the view that the impugned Annexure A-1 order dated 05.07.2017 is not at all legally as well as ethically justifiable. Its retention would create trust deficit between the BSNL employees and the Central Government, which is also unwarranted. Hence, I quash and set aside the impugned Annexure A-1 order dated 05.07.2017. Accordingly, the OA stands allowed.

This judgment is a glaring example about the of working of AIBSNLEA which fights sincerely and legally for the interests of all employees without any discrimination.
