(g) Withdrawal of local offg. Arrangements and introduction of Look after arrangements: We expressed our serious concern against arbitrary withdrawal of local offg. arrangements of JTO/SDE/DE/DGM and introduction of look after arrangements wherein so many deficiencies are observed viz. Mandate 'Look after' arrangements - we pleaded that mandate word is arbitrary and do not allow executive to forgo look after arrangements, which was available in local offg. arrangements. Similarly, look after arrangements should be based on All India seniority list with minimum transfer by calling volunteers. To implement SC/ST roster on look after arrangements since the administrative & financial powers are given. Also allow pay fixation on look after arrangements to executives in higher grade who could not get Time bound promotion in that grade. Sr. GM(Pers.) after detail discussions mentioned that BSNL Management Committee long before decided to stop local offg. arrangements to discourage court cases and accordingly order is issued. He assured that above points will be examined and necessary clarifications will be issued immediately.
