AIBSNLEA efforts to safeguard the interest of BSNL Executives absorbed or BSNL recruited.
AIBSNLEA has tried to get resolve the contentious HR issues during the last 10-11 years wherein the EPP was notified on 18.1.2007 with the great and sincere efforts of AIBSNLEA, because the then BSNL management with a indifferent attitude was not implementing the assured career progression to executives even after completion of 6-7 years after the formation of BSNL. With the untiring efforts of AIBSNLEA the then Secy (T) Dr. J.S.Sarma interfered in the matter and high level committee headed by Sh. S.Bhave, Addl.Secy (T) was constituted. AIBSNLEA provided the necessary feed back to the committee in favor of EPP and accordingly Sh. Bhave committee submitted its report which was finally discussed with AIBSNLEA in the formal meeting with the then Secy (T) Sh. D.S.Mathur on 10.1.2007 and thereafter with the approval of the BSNL Board this EPP was notified on 18.1.2007. AIBSNLEA brought the kind intervention of then Secy (T) Dr. J.S.Sarma and perks were granted to all executives w.e.f 1.1.2005. GSM telephone connection with STD facility handset and GPRS DATA service were provided with the efforts of AIBSNLEA. All the STS vacant posts of DEs/AOs/EEs(C/Ele/Arch/TF) were not being filled up till 2006. This issue was brought to the notice of Secy (T) Dr. J.S.Sarma and with his kind intervention the direction was given to CMD BSNL, Dir (HR) to fill up 2375 DEs posts and all the vacant STS level posts of Accounts, (Civil/Elect/Arch/TF) Engg wings where the absorption of Group A officers was completed. With our continuous persuasion first time after the formation of BSNL 2375 DEs,361 CAOs and about 300 EEs(C/E/Arch/TF) promotion orders were issued on adhoc basis in the year 2006.
AIBSNLEA succeeded in getting notified BSNL MSRR-2009and the detailed discussions with BSNL Management and after BSNL MSRR notification the regularization of Adhoc STS (DEs,CAOs, EEs took place. As soon as DEs/CAOs/EEs were regularly promoted. AIBSNLEA tried for DGM promotions and first time in the year 2009, DGMs Engg, DGM(Fin) and SE (C/E/Arch/TF) were promoted on Adhoc basis. On completion of 4 years of regular STS service, AIBSNLEA succeeded in getting regular promotion order of DGMs. It was a historical achievement to have regular DGMs promoted from Gr. B level executives.
AIBSNLEA also succeeded in getting implemented 2nd PRC report in BSNL with 30% fitment benefit being a schedule A and profit making PSU. AIBSNLEA efforts only got released presidential directives on 27th Feb 2009 from DOT. The DOT effort to grant 20% fitment benefit was strongly opposed by AIBSNLEA. E-1+5 advance increments benefit could be achieved by AIBSNLEA through Sh. K.C.G.K Pillai committee and now the efforts are being made to get the same benefit to JAO-2013, 2015 batches, JTO (SRD) and PA cadre.
48 PPS Posts have been created with all the CGMs in field units and 5 Sr. PPS posts in BSNL C.O. Restructuring of AD (OL) cadre proposal got approved from BSNL MC and now pending for approval of DOT.
With the struggle of AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA, BSNL has approved in its MC for replacement of E-1A by E2, E2-A by E3 of JTO and SDE equivalent executives in BSNL which is pending in DOT for clearance .To avoid stagnation in E3 grade for 10 years, BSNL has proposed to upgrade subsequent pay scales. But the DOT administration is interested to lower the pay scales E1-A by E-1 and E2 A by E2 scales which cannot be tolerated. Hence we have to keep ready for a strong and decisive struggle in BSNL to achieve E2 and E-3 IDA pay scales for JTO and SDE equivalent executives. AIBSNLEA is committed to achieve standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTO and SDE equivalent executives in BSNL.
AIBSNLEA efforts yielded result in getting set-up Khan committee headed by the then ED (NB) Sh. M.A.Khan. The Committee report on CPSU cadre hierarchy is pending in Pers. cell of BSNL C.O. for consideration but the same is being delayed for implementation on the pretext of MT recruitment. AIBSNLEA is strongly opposing MT recruitment above JTO/JAO level also demanding DGM RR scrapping. AIBSNLEA strongly feels that BSNL is having young and talented executives available having B Tech/M tech MBA, ICWA and CA qualifications and they should reach to the rank of GM/CGMs and will be eligible for BSNL Board of Directors/CMD interviews due to age profile. Hence, AIBSNLEA will never allow recruitment of MT/DGMs above JTO/JAO level.
AIBSNLEA demands 12% contribution from BSNL towards 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees w.ef. 01.01.2007. BSNL absorbed employees are covered with pension Rule 37A. 60-40 provision secretly introduced by Govt. has now been withdrawn with the AIBSNLEA untiring efforts. 78.2% IDA pay fixation benefit has been granted to BSNL employees and BSNL pensioners. Stepping up of pay of seniors w.r.t their juniors under EPP . The manner AIBSNLEA in concern for the settlement of the HR issues, in the similar manner AIBSNLEA in concern towards viability of BSNL also. Hence as and when an agitation call is given by the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations the AIBSNLEA is always at the forefront to protest against the wrong policies of the Govt. and failure of the BSNL Management in providing required materials to field Units. With our efforts only the 30% disinvestment of BSNL could be wherein 20000 crs BSNL’s divested money was going out of the exchequer of the Govt. VRS to one lakhs workers was opposed because BSNL never provided the road map to maintain the existing 34000 telephone Exchanges in the country. Unbundling of copper conductor was also stopped that is why today BSNL’s Broad Band market share is more than 65% With our struggle only Rs.6740/- crores BSNL spectrum charges were refunded to BSNL Rs.1500 Rural deficit charges for the FY 2011-12 was paid by DOT to BSNL. now the sanction of Rs.1250 cr rural deficit charges has come from Govt.Efforts are being made to pay pension contribution on actual basic of BSNL employees instead of maximum of the pay.
Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations has served a notice to protect against the fragmentation of BSNL in Tower subsidiary. 15th Dec 2016 one day strike will be there to protest against the creation of Tower subsidiary.
In this manner AIBSNLEA is safeguarding the interest of all the BSNL executives and to save BSNL. AIBSNLEA have cordial relations with all the unions/Associations of BSNL. In view of the above all the BSNL executives are requested to vote and support to AIBSNLEA in the Executive Membership verification to save BSNL and its executives interest.
AIBSNLEA extends sincere gratitude and thanks to the CHQ of AIGETOA and their members for their unqualified support to AIBSNLEA in the membership verification. AIBSNLEA also reciprocate the same to AIGETOA and assure that after becoming No.1 executive Association, it will take all the efforts for the settlement of DR executives pending issues on top priority along with other issues.
Subsidiary Tower Company of BSNL:

Status of E1A & E2A replacement of pay scale by E2 & E3 scales:
BSNL’s proposal for the replacement of E1A & E2A by E2 & E3 respectively is pending at Internal Finance of DoT. It is understood that Member(F) proposed to take the presentation from BSNL on this issue but Addl. Secy(T) has suggested to give E1 & E2 pay scales to JTO & SDE equivalent executives. He is not agreeing BSNL’s proposal for replacement of E1A by E2 and E2A by E3. AST has wrongly mentioned that intermediatory pay scales E1A and E2A were not approved by DoT, which is not correct. The fact remains, that E1A and E2A pay scales were duly approved by DoT and DPE. Hence, now E1A and E2A pay scales cannot be lowered to E1 and E2 pay scales as suggested by AST. Against this attitude of DoT Administration, we have to plan strong agitation to impress upon BSNL Management to get approved this proposal from DoT. Get ready for the struggle.
AIBSNLEA’s consistent efforts yielded result in getting released order regarding follow up action w.r.t. result of LICE for promotion to the grade of JAO under 40% Quota.
