KOLKATA: The telecoms department is likely to unveil a higher compensation package by June 30 to help state-owned BSNL and MTNL coax their senior managements, involving some 1000 senior ITS officers to stay back.

Last month, BSNL and MTNL had sought a review of an April 17 Delhi High Court order that required them to release these ITS officers by May 14 as they had all opted to return to government service where pension is higher. Both telcos had claimed such a move would derail them and had sought two years from the high court to defer the ITS repatriation exercise. But the court has given them till September 30.

Since there are no vacancies in the
telecom department either to absorb so many executives, the government is working closely with BSNL, MTNL and the Indian Telecom Service Association (ITSA), the body representing ITS officers, to work out a compromise formula that encourages about 900 ITS officers to stay back in BSNL and another 100-odd in MTNL in the long term interest of both telcos. So much so, an internal telecom department panel chaired by joint secretary (telecom) Malay Srivastava is trying to finalise a new compensation package by the month end.

"Efforts are on to encourage these ITS officers to remain in BSNL and MTNL by ensuring they do not lose out on central pension dues," a senior official in the telecom department with direct knowledge told ET.

At present, the high court has fixed August 12, 2005, as the absorption date for ITS officers opting to stay back in either BSNL or MTNL. But in that case, 90 per cent of this ITS bloc which is in BSNL will lose 7 years of central government pension.

Since these central government officers were deputed to BSNL 12 years ago when the telco was spun off into a separate company from
DoT, they have already accumulated 12 years of pension dues. But if they opt to retire from government service and seek re-employment in BSNL from August 12, 2005, they will retain barely 5 years of central government pension. Pension earned beyond August 12, 2005, will be as per state PSU scales which is lower than central levels.

"This is the main bone of contention and government is trying to address this urgently. One option is to allow ITS officers seeking absorption in BSNL and MTNL to retire from government service on current date. That way, they get to keep their central pension for the full deputation period, and thereafter earn additional sums as per PSU scale. But there is no decision yet," said a committee member.

After CMD's Meeting representatives of Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations  met & discussed to implement successfully indefinite strike from 13th June'2012 at 00.00 hrs.

The Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations representatives felt that BSNL Management is quite indifferent towards BSNL employees whereas ready to give all benefits to the deputationists in BSNL. As Management  didn't shown any keenness to resolve the issue, Forum decided to go ahead with the indefinite strike w.e.f 13.06.2012, 00.00 Hrs.
All CHQ Office Bearers, Circle/Branch Secretaries are requested to intensify the agitation call by making indefinite strike from 13th June'2012 (00.00 hrs.) a complete success.

SK Satyarthi, CGM, BSNL Factory Circle, Kolkata, was arrested late ...CLICK<<Senior BSNL official arrested on bribe charges>>
There are only three more days for the historic indefinite strike to start. According to reports received by the CHQ, the strike is going to be a hundred per cent success. Spontaneous and massive preparations are going on throughout the country to make the strike a historic success. All the Unions and associations of BSNL are united completely to end the injustice being meted out to the employees. From the Management side there is no honest and worth mentioning attempt to avert the strike. After the 1st June discussion, management has not taken any step to resolve the crises. The conciliation that is going to take place with the Chief Labour Commissioner next Monday is not going to yield any result, unless the management comes forward to settle the issue. Hence, in all probabilities, the indefinite strike from 13th instant has become imminent. Hence, CHQ calls upon all the leaders and cadres to take all out efforts to make the strike a resounding success.

GS, President along with the representatives  of Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations attended meeting with CMD, BSNL. Director(EB), Director (Finance), PGM(SR), GM(Estt.), GM(CA), DGM(SR) and AGM(SR) were also present in the meeting.

CMD, BSNL welcomed the representatives and asked to discuss their demands. The representatives of Forum one by one resented and strongly demanded the implementation of DPE orders dated 26th Nov'2008 and 2nd April'2009 and revision of Allowances as per 2nd PRC recommendations and 78.2% IDA fitment benefit in the pay respectively . They also protested against the discriminatory attitude of the BSNL Management wherein Management has issued order for payment of all the allowances  and pay fixation order to un-absorbed ITS Officers as per 6th CPC recommendations.

CMD after hearing all the representatives of Forum accepted that they don't have much to discuss today but the demands of Forum can be accepted, only when the company's financial health improves, till the time employees should have patience.
Forum leaders categorically told that since BSNL Management is giving all 6th CPC benefits to non-optee ITS Officers and providing vehicles (SWIFT Dzire, Maruti SX-4, Honda City etc.) then how management is pleading financial implications for BSNL absorbed employees.
 Hence, Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations after CMD's Meeting in  its meeting decided to continue proposed agitation programmes i.e. DHARNA on 6th June'2012  and Indefinite strike w.e.f. 13th June'2012 .

All the CHQ Office bearers, Circle/Branch Secretaries are requested to ensure successful implementation of Forum's agitation Programmes.
CHQ NEWS18.05.2012: STATUS OF ITS OFFICERS ABSORPTION ISSUE:  Hon'ble High Court,  Delhi outrightly dismissed the modification application filed by BSNL seeking 25 months time for repatriation of unabsorbed ITS officers working in BSNL.Even desperate plea made by the BSNL counsel to give time upto 31st December, 2012 was rejected by the Hon'ble Court. Hon'ble HC while dismissing the application of BSNL directed it to complete repatriation process by 30th Sept, 2012.
Intervention application was filed by AIBSNLEA, BSNLEU and SNEA(I). Even though the intervention application was also dismissed, yet counsel appearing for these Associations/unions strongly opposed the move of ITS controlled BSNL Management for extension of time. Intervention application was not admitted on technical grounds since we are not party in the original application.

GS, President & GS, President SNEA(I) met Director (EB), BSNL and discussed(a) Mass transfer of executives in Bihar Circle- our protest against: We strongly protested against the mass transfers(36 out of 108) of DEs (including Officiating promotions), which is involving huge wasteful expenditure. CGMT Bihar Circle has told that BSNL have sufficient fund to meet the expenditure incurred in mass transfers whereas large number of employees claims are pending in Bihar Circle due to non-availability of funds.

GS briefed about the court case filed by some executives in the Hon'ble High Court Chandigarh against creation of 3500 super-numeric posts of JTOs and allowing them to appear in the TES Group-'B' LDCE-2012, wherein applicants have requested that  since creation of 3500 super-numeric posts are under litigation so  the LDCE conducted is illegal, hence it should be cancelled and LDCE result should be stayed.

10.05.2012:GS, President & AGS (HQ) met Sr. GM(Pers.) and discussed
(a)   DPCs to fill up vacant DGM, DE and SDE(T) Posts: We requested to expedite DPCs to fill up vacant DGM, DE and SDE(T) posts.  Sr. GM(Pers.) mentioned that Pers. Cell is doing its best to get resolve all the Court Cases of TES Group-'B' seniority related. In some cases i.e. JTO to SDE(T) DPC can now be conducted since court case is cleared, DE to DGM DPC is held up due to 147 SDEscase and the judgement from Hon'ble High Court, Ernakulam  is awaited on 22nd May'2012 but SDE to DE promotion   some court cases are still creating hurdles for that any way out, if any, can be suggested by the associations so that an early action can be taken to hold DPC.

 (b) Consideration of pending request / tenure transfers of SDEs/DEs: We informed that in most of the Circles transfer request register is maintained and if such practice is started at BSNL Corporate Office and same is uploaded on the website for transparency, the transfer / posting issue will be smoothened.  Sr. GM(Pers.) discussed the matter with AGM(Pers.) to smoothen the process. However, he assured that issue will be examined to start such practice in near future.

(c) Modifications in BSNL Executives transfer policy- our protest against:  We expressed our protest against increasing the tenure of transfer period of soft tenure station from two years to three years which contradicts to the Govt.'s transfer policy provisions as well as against Para II (d) i.e. "the Executives being posted in Soft Tenure from within the Circle may not be allowed to revert to the same SSA from where they were transferred, at least for one post tenure" which has defeated the very purpose of dealing with soft tenure stations. As per the revised policy one executive will have to be away from his parent station for the next six years thereafter only he will be exempted from inter-Circle transfer liability. With these provisions no executive will like to serve these soft tenure stations from the same Circle, rather he will prefer to go to some nearby Circle on Inter-circle transfer basis and will come back to his parent station after three years. In this manner these soft tenure  stations will continue to suffer with shortage of executives/staff. Hence, this order need immediate modification. Sr. GM(Pers.) after detail discussions assured to look into the matter.

(d) Restructuring of AD(O/L) Cadre: Sr. GM(Pers.) informed that today the Committee on this issue is meeting. He assured to discuss the matter with Addl. GM(Estt.), Chairman Committee for an early action.

It will be arranged in a smooth manner without any confusion but the more efficient administration alleged to be run by the GM(F) could not do the officiating for just 62 vacancies declared in CAO cadre. Is it too difficult? No, the mind set is not OK. Always to torture and punish the subordinates and unwillingness to extend the due promotions in time is the mind set. There cannot be two procedures under the same rules. We wait to prove the inactive and inefficient administration of Accounts Head and see that this attitude will be changed otherwise the head will be changed.
NEWS FROM CHQ:08.05.2012:   BSNL Corporate Office issued letter regarding option of absorption to Group-'A' officers w.r.t. W.P.(C) 22515-22518/2005 and CM No.14692-14694/2005, 6787/2006, 7955/2006, 15087/02008 and 1536/ 2012- judgment of High court of Delhi  <<Click Here for letter>>

The judgement of the Delhi High Court for a final disposal of the ITS absorption issue is welcome. For at least the last 5 to 6 years, the issue has been continuing without any final settlement. This has seriously and adversely affected the development and expansion of the company in an unprecedented manner. The company is in loss for the last three years and the top management is answerable. Along with the anti-PSU policy of the government, the uncertainty about the future of the ITS has demoralised the top officers to a very large extend which had its own repercussions in the functioning of  the BSNL. This situation can not continue, if the BSNL has to survive.

It is informed that the BSNL management is trying to approach the Court to get more time for the repatriation, on the plea that the services of these officers are indispensable. Similar was the argument by the Britishers that Indians can not rule the country on their own. It is only a fragile argument. There are sufficient ITS officers who have opted for BSNL who can be posted in the important posts. Even if more is necessary, senior and efficient executives can be posted. The Pitroda committee recommendations in this connection is relevant. Less than 100 senior officers are sufficient to man these posts.
The BSNL management should stand for the company from which they get their salary and not for those who want to leave the company for their career prospects. We don't have anything against the ITS officers who want to get repatriated for better prospects.  The issue is very simple.  If they want BSNL, BSNL  wants them. If they do not want BSNL, naturally BSNL also do not want them.
The BSNL Management has to rise to the occasion and has to settle the issue in the interest of BSNL. Any lapse on this will never be condoned or pardoned by the workers or the people of this country who  want BSNL to survive and serve the people.

KOLKATA: State-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) andMahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd(MTNL) are likely to file for review of a Delhi High Court order to relieve all Indian Telecom Service (ITS) officers who want to return to the Department of Telecommunications by May 14.

"Both telcos are likely to seek more time from the court on the grounds that relieving so many
ITSofficers at a single stroke would rob them of their senior managers and ring in an organisational collapse," two executives aware of the development in BSNL and MTNL told ET.

The decision was taken after Additional Solicitor General AS Chandiok said that the government would have to heed the high court order and accept back all ITS officers in BSNL and MTNL who wish to return within two weeks of these executives exercising their option.

Last week, the government had sought Chandiok's legal advice since there were no vacancies in
DoT to absorb so many BSNL and MTNL officers belonging to the ITS cadre.

On April 17, the court had asked these ITS officers to take a final call by April 30 and it is believed nearly all have opted to return to government service where the pension benefits are higher. More so, since they would lose out nearly seven years of central government pension if they opted to be remain in either BSNL or MTNL as the high court has fixed August 12, 2005, as the absorption date.

"After the BSNL and MTNL chairmen received internal feedback that nearly all ITS officers have opted to return to DoT, they urged telecom minister
Kapil Sibal to protect the central scale pension benefits of all these executives in a last ditch bid to stop an exodus of their top managers," said a senior BSNL executive who did not wish to be named.

At present, there are nearly 1,700 ITS officers, of whom nearly 1,400 were deputed to BSNL 12 years ago when the telco was spun off into a separate corporate entity from the telecom department. The balance 300-odd have been on deputation in MTNL since the formation of the telco in 1986.

Last November, when the communications ministry gave these officers an option to return to government service, a majority opted to return to DoT. Last month, the Delhi High Court detected glitches in this repatriation exercise and asked all ITS officers to exercise a fresh option by April 30.

After DoT's legal advisors confirmed that neither BSNL nor MTNL would be able to hold on to the remaining 1,300 ITS officers following the court order, both telcos have decided to seek a review of court verdict.

The District conference of Coimbatore SSA was held on 29.04.2012.  Com.Veerapandian CS, Com.SivakumarcCP, Com Duraiarasan ACS, Com Narayanan CEC, Com Radhakrishnan CWC, Com VKP Advisor CHQ and Com Ravi attended and felicitated. Com. Rajamanickam has been elected unanimously as District Secretary. Best wishes to Com Rajamanickam. We congratulate the team comprising Com Usman Ali, Com Sivaraj for the arrangements of conference.
A) DPCs from DE to DGM, SDE (T) to DE (Adhoc) and DE (Regular): We expressed our serious resentment against non-filling up of DGMs and DEs vacant posts on Regular/Adhoc basis on the pretext of pending court cases.

17.04.2012:Start making profit, Sibal tells BSNLBharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL), that is facing stiff competition from private players, has been asked by Communications and IT Minister Kapil Sibal to come up with projects that would help it write off losses and start making profit.
“I have asked BSNL to submit plans for five projects in the next four to six weeks which will help the company to move towards profitability,” Mr. Sibal told journalists on Monday after inaugurating BSNL's new Internet Data Centre (IDC), set up in collaboration with Dimension Data, in the adjoining township of Faridabad.
“Though BSNL has a net worth of Rs.86,000 crore, it incurred a loss of Rs.6,000 crore… that is something that needs to be changed.”
Due to its falling market share, the BSNL has seen its losses shooting up over three times, from Rs.1,823 crore in 2009-10 to Rs.5,997 crore in 2010-11. The company had clocked a net profit of over Rs.10,000 crore in 2005-06, but since then its financial performance has been declining.
A committee formed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and headed by his advisor Sam Pitroda had given several suggestions, including voluntary retirement scheme for the overstaffed company, public issue, expansion of mobile business and proper use of towers and land resources. The report is yet to be implemented.
Talking about the data centre, Mr. Sibal said the public-private initiative would leverage the strength of BSNL in telecom infrastructure and help generate revenues. “These IDCs will enhance BSNL's comprehensive service portfolio to meet the communications and IT needs of large, medium and small business enterprises in India. It will facilitate various organisations to quickly induct IT-enabled services within their organisations without the hassle of setting up and maintaining their own data centres.”

DoT panel sees merit in merger of BSNL, MTNL
New Delhi, April 11:  Decks have been cleared for the merger of BSNL and MTNL.
The Department of Telecom has told the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology that the proposal to merge BSNL and MTNL makes sense.
A team of DoT officials, including the Secretary, Mr R. Chandrashekhar, who appeared before the panel on Wednesday, said the Board for Reconstruction of Public Sector Enterprises' (BRPSE) recommendation that MTNL could be brought under BSNL was accepted by a committee set up by the DoT.
The DoT told the panel that the board's recommendation was examined by a committee headed by Member (Services) of the Telecom Commission. The committee, officials said, has submitted its report.
“The committee has recommended that while the merger of BSNL and MTNL prima facie makes sense, merger with or takeover of Indian Telecom Industries (ITI) by BSNL, reflects a poor business case for sustainable viability of ITI with no significant tangible benefits to BSNL,” a Standing Committee member said quoting the officials.
The BRPSE had earlier said that there was no reason for MTNL to continue as a separate entity. The DoT's panel, which looked into the issue of merger, has also raised issues such as difference in pay scales and HR policies.
“The committee has further recommended that though the merger of BSNL-MTNL is desirable, the issues such as differences in pension administration mechanism, difference in pay scales and other HR policies of the two organisations need to be resolved first before moving ahead,” the officials told the standing committee.
Synergistic alliance They added that since resolving of such issues are time consuming, the DoT has decided to encourage “creation and recognition of synergistic alliance” of the BSNL and MTNL through policy interventions.
The officials added that the report of the DoT committee has been sent to the BRPSE for its consideration after the approval of the competent authority.
The Standing Committee has started examining the demands for grants of the DoT for this fiscal.
The report of the panel will be laid in the second part of Budget session, which will begin on April 24.

12.04.2012 Security on the wireThe Chinese ghost is back to haunt the telecom sector. This time it is over equipment that a private operator has contracted to buy from Huawei Technologies and ZTE Corporation financed by loans from state-owned Chinese banks. India's external intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing, has pointed to Huawei's links with the People's Liberation Army of China in an apparent objection to the import deal. To be sure, this is not the first time that Chinese telecom companies are in the news for the wrong reasons. A couple of years ago, state-owned BSNL was forced to cancel a contract awarded to these same companies following objections raised by security agencies. The concern was that foreign agencies could take control of the communication network during a hostile situation through embedded software, or use it to snoop on India. The government then placed an informal ban on imports of telecom gear from China and when the operators protested, it allowed such imports subject to guidelines, one of which was that the supplier should submit the source code for the embedded software.

Let's get this straight. If the concern is over security of imported telecom equipment, it cannot be about any one country or company. The two Chinese companies in question may have links to that country's security agencies but arguably, equipment sourced from any other company or country can be bugged too. Worse, if they so wish, foreign security agencies can even try and bug networks in India that are already running. It is not necessary that they have to do it only when equipment is bought from their country. Faced with such risks, the government has two options. One, it can ban telecom gear imports and direct operators to source all such equipment from within India. But that will be knee-jerk and is a sure fire method to put down the booming telecom industry of the country. The second and more pragmatic option is to develop counter-measures aimed at containing precisely the threat that the intelligence agencies are concerned about. The government should prod these agencies into investing in technology to deal with such threats rather than seeking a ban on imports, which is all too easy and convenient an option. Simultaneously, it should involve the telecom industry in a dialogue to devise a comprehensive policy on equipment imports without compromising on the country's security. Operators go to China for its cheaper prices and easy availability of finance which in turn helps them to offer low tariffs for their services. The government should bear this in mind while framing its policy.

கீழ்ப்படிதலும் நாணயமாக நடத்தலும்
            கீழ்மட்ட ஊழியர்களுக்கு மட்டும் சொல்லப்படும்
            ஊருக்கு உபதேசம் தானா?
07.03.2012 அன்று தர்ணா போராட்டத்தின் போது
CGM முன்பு spot agreement ஆன ஒரு பிரச்சனை - CAO Officiating.
ஏற்கனவே வந்த options படி
as is where is basis அடிப்படையில்
அந்தந்த ஊர்களில் Officiating போடுவது,
வேறு ஊர்களுக்கு விருப்பம் இருந்தால் அவர்களைப் பரிசீலிப்பது,
மீதம் காலி இடம் இருந்தால்,
zone of considerationக்கு கீழ் சென்று அதே அடிப்படையில்
காலி இடங்களை நிரப்புவது,
குறிப்பாக, வேறு ஊர்களுக்கு விருப்பம் தெரிவிக்காதவர்களுக்கு
மாற்றல் போடக்கூடாது”
என்பது தான் ஏற்பட்ட ஒப்பந்தம்.
அத்தனையும் காற்றில் பறக்க விட்டு
மனம் போன போக்கில்
மீண்டும் குளறுபடியான  CAO officiating உத்தரவு வெளி வந்துள்ளது.
இதை நாம் ஏற்பதில்லை.

HUMAN VALUES பற்றி மிக அதிகம் அலட்டிக் கொள்ளுபவர்கள்
செய்யும் செயலா இது?



தொடர்ந்து கட்டாய மாற்றல் உத்தரவு வெளிவருவதைப் பார்த்தால்,
”மாற்றம் ஒன்றே மாறாதது”
என்பதை  தவறாக புரிந்து கொண்டனர், என்று தெரிகிறது.
தன்னுடைய தவறான நிலைபாடுகளும் வாதங்களும்
தன்னுடைய சக நிர்வாகத்தாலேயே
நிராகரிக்கப்படுவதைப் பொறுக்க மாட்டாமல்,
கட்டாய உத்தரவு வெளியிட்டு,
ஊழியர்களையும் சங்கத்தையும் மிரட்ட
நிதி நிர்வாகம் முனைகிறது.
தகுந்த முறையில் இந்த பிரச்சனையை
மாநில சங்கம் கையாளும் என்று நம்புகிறோம்
மாநில சங்கத்தின் அறைகூவலுக்கு உறுப்பினர்கள் காத்திருக்கிறார்கள்.
