This meeting was addressed by Com GL Jogi Chairman CHQ, Circle Secretary, Com Praveen Verma DS Lucknow, Com Vinod Singh President Fatehpur, Com Shrawan Kumar DS Fatehpur, Com Ashish Jaiswal Ex-DS Fatehpur & many other senior comrades. In the last, vote of thanks was extended by Com Vinod Singh, District President, Fatehpur.

In his address, Com Jogi mentioned the achievements of SNEA since the formation of BSNL. He explained in detail the efforts of SNEA CHQ in resolving the issues of Executives.

On 3rd PRC: SNEA took the lead in constitution of 3rd PRC by launching agitation under NCOA. In fact, SNEA was the only Association participated in the agitation. SNEA and NCOA together gave a detailed presentation before the 3rd PRC which was appreciated very much by the PRC. Our entire focus was to delink the pay revision from the profits and affordability. Similarly on superannuation benefits to the BSNL directly recruited employees, being a social security measure, SNEA and NCOA pleaded for compulsory contribution from the CPSU without giving any flexibility to the CPSUs. SNEA was in constant touch with BSNL management and ensured that most of our suggestions are supported and incorporated in the presentation to be given by BSNL mmanagement to 3rd PRC.

On Superannuation benefits: all efforts are to continue to get minimum 6% contribution from BSNL as offered by CMD, BSNL in our AIC held at Jaipur in last September. Even though earlier offer was come for 4% and 6% from management side, there was no unanimity among the Assns and Unions, some are insisting for 12%. But unfortunately they didn’t opposed 3%! Now the proposal for administrative approval with 3% contribution is in DOT, we are pursuing it on a daily basis to start with. Once separate fund is formed, we will focus on enhancing the contribution.

On promotions: almost all the promotions in various streams are stayed by different courts on different grounds. The LDCE promotion, SDE to DE promotion, JAO to AO and AO to CAO promotions are held up.Efforts are being made to hear the case on merit at the earliest.

The only viable alternative to this deadlock situation in promotions are implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy. CPSU Hierarchy is the implementation of the agreement reached between TEAO (now SNEA) and BSNL in 2002 agitation in true spirit where it was agreed that Time Bound Functional promotion without linking with the posts will be provided upto Selection Grade DGM between 4 to 6 years. Till that date only two financial upgradations (one from JTO and another from SDE) were available, that also after 12 years. In CPSU Hierarchy, promotions are delinked from seniority and availability of posts. Since the Joint Committee was almost defunct, SNEA alone started agitations since February, 2014 demanding CPSU Hierarchy and standard pay scales of E2, E3. Finally we succeeded through agitation in 2015 when CMD agreed to reconstitute the Joint Committee. The demand of first TB promotion after 4 years instead of 6 years also made a terms of reference of the same committee, another breakthrough. We could get very positive recommendations from the Jt Committee on all the three issues in very short time. After the recommendations, last several months, we are working for 1) one time relaxation for immediate promotion to the next higher grade for the Executives working in higher scales, 2) relaxation for qualifying service for further promotions, 3) uniform date of promotion and pay fixation, 4) change of designation, 5) increasing the number of DGM posts etc. The draft proposal addresses large number of concerns and mmanagement accepted most of our above mentioned demands. Our major issue pending is to make the AGM promotions also time bound, without linking with availability of posts and financial upgradations to E5 and E6 scales should be after 5 years instead of 7 years. SNEA is committed to ensure a uniform promotion policy for all the Executives.

On standard pay scales: we are fully committed to see that our basic cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO are not demoted from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2. SNEA through continuous struggles upgraded the pay scales of JTO cadre thrice, first in 1987, second in 1996 and third during absorption in BSNL. The status also got upgraded from Group C to Group B Gazetted and then to an Executive. Then it has extended to all similar cadres like JAO, JTO(C/E) etc. Our struggle since 2014 was to get the standard pay scales of E2, E3 as replacement scales for the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A. E1A and E2A are the two pay scales, DoT didn’t approved in 2009. By pursuing in DoT and DPE, SNEA ensured that proposal of E1A and E2A scales are rejected by DoT and DPE in July, 2014 giving momentum to our struggle for E2 and E3. In the Joint committee we struggled to see that positive recommendations are coming, even though dissent note was given by some members. Our agenda is to get E2, E3 scale now, before 3rd so that we should not miss the benefits of 3rd PRC. This will give deserved benefits to thousands and thousands of JTO/JAOs recruited in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and future recruits. The pay parity demand is to be pursued after that. Once E2, E3 is settled, it will be easy to settle E2 to E7. Our priority is to see that JTO/JAO, SDE/AO cadres are not demoted, rest will follow.

Membership verificationshould lead to unity among the Executives. It is a golden opportunity to revive BSNL, meet all the Executives and explain the contribution of this Association in various struggles to protect the interest of the Executives as well as the interest of BSNL. On disinvestment, copper cable unbundling, ADC, 45.5 million tender cancellation, ITS issue, BWA spectrum refund, 3G roaming, GSM tender cancellation, tower subsidiary formation, MTNL & BSNL merger, SNEA was in the forefront of all the struggles. This is an Assn fighting for your rights. Join this Association and strengthen it. Strengthen the hands of SNEA which all along struggling to Strengthen BSNL. Appeal to all the Executives is that join this fighting brigade, strengthen it to protect your rights, to protect our company. 

        Com PK Shukla AGS, told the members that SNEA is the only association which is really concerned about the future of the executives and at the same time focusing on financial viability of company. When others are silent, we had taken a leading role to raise and focus on issues of executives.

      All the speakers highlighted the successful agitation by SNEA on issues related to Standard pay scales, 30% superannuation benefits, CPSU cadre Hierarchy  & Uniform time bound promotions, MT recruitment, 67% SCF JTO to SDE promotion, Issues related to Accounts etc. During interactive session, Com Jogi & CS replied all the queries raised by our members. He appealed one & all to make SNEA no. 1 Association in the forthcoming member verification to be held in Nov, 2016. CS appealed to one and all to make 'Relay Hunger Strike' from 27th to 29 September, 2016 and all subsequent agitation programs a grand success.

Draft proposal on CPSU Hierarchy upto AGM Grade.

Our major demands and suggestions are accepted by the management to great extent

a)  Time Bound Functional promotion to SDE/AO, Sr SDE/Sr AO and AGM/CAO after completion of 5 years of service.

b)  Promotions delinked from seniority.

c)  Promotions delinked from availability of posts, fully upto Sr SDE/Sr AO grade.

SNEA suggestions accepted by the management

1)  First promotion immediately on implementation itself, without DPC, for the Executives working in higher scales. Example: JTO in E2A scale. Immediately he will be promoted as SDE w/o DPC. This will give great relief to thousands and thousands of JTOs, SDEs, JAOs and AOs waiting for promotions for years together.

2)  For the Executives working in two or more higher scales, two years relaxation in the qualifying service for the second promotion. Example: A JTO in E3 scale. Immediately he will be promoted as SDE w/o DPC and he will be promoted as Sr SDE after 3 years of service as SDE (relaxation of 2 years).

3)  Change of designation for each grade.

4)  Uniform date of promotion, 1st January or 1st July. Similarly uniform date of increment, 1st January or 1stJuly. In future, anomalies will not be there.

5)  DPCs decentralised to respective Circles.

 Challenges in the draft CPSU proposal, to be addressed in totality:

a) Time Bound Functional promotion to AGM grade for the existing SDE/AOs having 10 years of combined service as SDE/Sr SDE or AO/Sr AO without linking with the availability of posts. As and when remaining SDE/AOs completes 10 years, promotion to AGM grade.

b) To get the CPSU Hierarchy upto AGM grade as recommended by the Khan Committee, processed first, separately, w/o linking with the promotions to higher grades. Promotions to higher grades are to be dealt separately, later.

c)  Increasing the number of DGM posts to atleast 2000.

d)After implementation of CPSU Hierarchy upto AGM, processing the promotions from DGM onwards with necessary changes.

These outstanding issues are to be settled. Please send your suggestions if you have any.

3rd PRC को लागू कराने के लिए SNEA का सतत प्रयास

SNEA सबसे तेज़

NCOA (SNEA is also main constituent) representing more than 1.6 lakh Executives of 264 CPSUs given a detailed presentation before the 3rd Pay Revision Committee. On 03.08.2016 discussions held in the Committee room for about 01 hr 15 mts even though it was an introductory meeting. When NCOA sought an appointment for presentation, Chairman immediately given permission and called us for discussion. Chairman Justice Satish Chandra (Retd) and Members Sri Shailendra Pal Singh and Sri Madhukar Gupta, Sec/DPE were present. After detailed discussion, Chairman directed us to give a detailed presentation on all the issues before the full 3rd Pay Revision Committee on 04.08.2016 at 3 pm.

On 04.08.2016, NCOA had given an excellent presentation on various demands. As suggested by the PRC members, the presentation was made with full justification of the demands with possible solutions also. Eventhough the allotted time was only 20 minutes, the presentation and discussion took more than one hour. In addition to Chairman and all PRC members Shri Jugal Mohapatra, Prof Manoj Panda, Sri Shailendra Pal Singh and Sri Madhukar Gupta, Sec/DPEand officers from SCOPE also present in the meeting. All the issues discussed in detail. Chairman and PRC members had lot of queries and NCOA could clarify all the points to their satisfaction.

These are the important issues deliberated in the meeting with PRC:

  1. PRC should be implemented for all the CPSUs without linking with affordability. Our main focus was on this important aspect. Employees having limited role in loss /profit of the company. They are depending on Govt/company policies, market conditions and other external factors. Balance sheet is prepared on the basis of several factors like depreciation. We explained with the example of BSNL where the operational profit is about 2000 Cr but due to huge depreciation value, balance sheet still shows losses. The Operating profit concept very much appreciated by the PRC. We could convince PRC that profit/loss alone cannot be the criteria for revision of Pay.

  2.   Periodicity. It should be 5 years, co-terminus with Non executives.

  3.   Pay Scales: New pay scales may be arrived with IDA as on Jan 2017 merged with basic Pay with fitment of 30% on basic Pay plus DA and rounded off to nearest 100. All pay scales should be open ended to address stagnation as recommended by 2nd PRC and 7th CPC.

  4.   Fitment: Uniform fitment of 30%.

  5.   Dearness Allowance: Present System of 100% neutralisation on quarterly basis, based on AICPI shall be followed.

  6.   Annual increment shall be 4%. A uniform date of increment may be followed for all employees in the CPSU. Notional Increment on promotion shall be awarded and fixed in the next higher stage.

  7.   House Rent Allowance: The present Rate of HRA shall be continued HRA shall be calculated based on Pay (Basic Pay plus DA) so that it is indexed

  8.  Perks and Allowances shall be calculated based on emoluments(Basic pay plus DA). Present system of Cafeteria approach shall continue. The Ceiling on Perks and Allowances may be fixed as 50% of Pay (Basic plus DA). Bell Curve should be abolished as it is unscientific. Accenture, KPMG, IBM, Infosys, Wipro, TCS, CISCO, Microsoft, HCL Technologies, Google, Adobe have abandoned the bell curve based system, performance appraisal. All of them are switching to a continuous feedback process throughout the year to get a holistic view of performance and potential.

  9.   Child care leave to be made mandatory for all CPSUs.

  10.   Performance Related Payment (PRP) with an objective PMS. It should have two parts, Productivity linked PRP and Profit linked PRP. Even for sick/loss making CPSUs except allowances all The Minimum Salary shall including Basic Pay plus IDA, HRA, Medical facility and Company contribution towards terminal benefits.

  11. Superannuation benefit with fixed components PF, Gratuity, Employee Pension Scheme and Medical Benefits for Retired Employees. Our main focus was to make it mandatory like pay scale revision. CPSUs should not be given flexibility on deciding the quantum of contribution.

  12. Automatic pension revision for the BSNL/MTNL pensioners absorbed from DoT as per CCS pension Rules 1972. Since the pension is paid on IDA scales, it should be covered by PRC as requested by DoT.

It was an excellent opportunity for NCOA as we could interact with the PRC for 02 Hrs 25 minutes in two days covering all the main issues. Com Baby Thomas, Secretary General/NCOA, Com V. K. Tomar, President NCOA, Com KSN Raju, Com K. Sebastin, GS/SNEA, Com Vidyasagar/BHEL, Com Lakhsmi Narayan/BEL and office bearers from other CPSUs participated

The difference between SNEA & others ?

All the affiliates of NCOA (SNEA, MTNL, BHEL, BEL, NTPC etc.) are as much committed to and fully involved in constitution of 3rd PRC and future struggles have to be very formidable since the real challenge lies in ensuring that wage revision is completely delinked from profitability of CPSUs. 3rd PRC had to be compelled to follow the yardstick of 7th CPC. Let us start gearing up for what surely is going to be a protracted and ferocious struggle and in this struggle SNEA will be at the center stage in mobilizing and organizing future struggles.
It was only SNEA along with NTPC and Oil sector that went on three days strike in Dec, 2006 for merger of 50% IDA with basic pay and HB eventually succeeded in forcing the govt. to amend the terms of reference of 2nd PRC by asking 2nd PRC to give interim recommendation. 2nd PRC finally recommended merger of 50%IDA and govt. accepted the recommendation and we got merger of 50% IDA. We remember, we even then met then Hon'ble PM Sh Manmohan Singh who directed Mr Santos Mohan Dev then Hon minister of Heavy industries and public enterprises to take appropriate action. It was only SNEA that was involved in struggle for merger of 50 % IDA and others were sleeping. Similarly this time too it was because of pragmatic and proactive role of SNEA in NCOA that resulted in struggle and constitution of 3rd PRC. All other Associations were and are in deep slumber on this issue.

11th June 2016

Com.G.L.Jogi, Chairman responds to  Com Baby Thomas, SG NCOA regarding constitution of 3rd PRC: 

Even though constitution of 3rd PRC is exclusivity because of a well drafted strategy followed by organizational actions from the platform of NCOA, but this is just the tip of an iceberg. Let us not be complacent but gear up and get fully ready for what could possibly be a protracted and ferocious struggle to safeguard the interests of every comrade regardless of the CPSU he is working in. To ensure this is a very big challenge that will inevitably lead to fostering of unity amongst CPSUs so as to eventually defeat sinister designs of govt. and the vested interests to destabilize and disintegrate CPSUs. The beginning of our strategy and plan of action should be to ensure that wage revision is completely delinked from profitability of CPSUs since profitability of CPSUs is in no way linked to performance. Let us all recognize and publicly propagate that it is massive political corruption and strong weakness of govt. to promote private sector at the cost of public sector that has finished unshakeable pillars of Indian Economy, the CPSUs. Praful Patel finished aviation sector, Arun Shourie, Raja and Sibal telecom sector, Manmohan Singh Coal and Energy Sector. Thus profitability cannot under any circumstances be linked to profitability. This has to be the crux of our struggle. Best wishes for success of future struggle and glorious victory of CPSUs by exhibiting rock like unity from the platform of NCOA. We are confident that our friends from Oil, Coal, Power, Steel etc. will join the struggle and make this struggle a truly historical one in terms of unprecedented unity and solidarity of executives of CPSUs.

25th May 2016

It is once again clarified that 'Association' is not the part of any agitational program of any forum of Executives at present. We already know that an outcome of our recent successful struggle, Management has already given positive response in writing to resolve our HR issues in definite time frame & also appealed in writing in the interest of the our beloved Company. Let's hope, everything will come out in our favour. This huge success in breaking the deadlock of 4 years is only because of 'YOUR' continuous persuasion and struggle.

Comrades, we had only deferred the agitation programme, not withdrawn it knowing very well that lot of negative forces are working against the resolution of our HR issues. We should be very careful about their tactics. We have to keep all the organizational preparedness to respond in a short notice if there is any deviation from the commitment and target dates.

Our demand of standard pay scales of E2, E3 with five promotions (with or without cascading effect) for the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 should settle before constitution of 3rd PRC. Settlement of CPSU cadre Hierarchy, 1st Uniform Time Bound Promotion 30% superannuation benefit with minimum 6% as promised, Officiating pay protection, Notional pay of E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.10.2000 for Civil/Elect etc.

14th May 2016

Make all out preparations for the success of the RELAY HUNGER STRIKE from 18-05-2016 to 20-05-2016 at Circle / SSA HQs. Resolution of the issues fully depends upon the success of the Trade Union Programmes.

 All important issues like promotions, standard pay scales before 3rd PRC, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and 1st TBP, pay protection, memebership verification, notion pay for Civil/Electrical etc etc are pending for years together.

The valiant comrades of SNEA, the real  fighters  and  all the  Executives  together  will  once  again  prove what struggle is and how the issues are to be settled.

We have to be very careful about those who are playing with the future of the Executives after making recommendations for E2, E3 pay scales without cascading effect and during implementation time, making noises demanding cascading effect. They are already exposed since they didn’t make any recommendation for cascading effect. They were silent from 2012 to 2015. They never interested in E2, E3 scales for the new recruits from the beginning, never pursued it in BSNL or DoT or DPE to get the E1A and E2A scales rejected. They are for E1+5 increments. In the committee also they tried to derail it by demanding E2 scale from 01.10.2000. Even in the meeting with DIR(HR) on 26.04.2016, they mentioned that they are happy with E1, E2, -- E6 if cascading is not given.

The present move is a very clever and calculated move to derail its implementation demanding cascading effect or reducing the promotion from five to four, knowing very well that management will not accept it. Evenif management accepts, Board and DoT will reject it. Their only intension is to confuse the Executives, promising changes in pay scales for all and ultimately force management even not to implement simple E2 and E3 pay scales, our comrades should understand.

Mgt also never interested to implement it rather tried their best to demote the JTO/JAO, SDE/AO cadres from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2. When SNEA started agitation, Joint Committee reconstituted in 2015. Committee made sweeping recommendations on standard pay scales, CPSU Hierarchy and 1st TBP. Their agenda suits management, which doesn’t want to implement E2, E3. If management is sincere, it will implement the recommendations in toto without any further delay as promised. If that is not happening, it can be presumed that this drama is going on with the support of management to scuttle the pay scales, CPSU Hierarchy and 1st TBP. We should not allow this to happen. No pay scales means, no CPSU Hierarchy and no 1st TBP. The 3rd PRC implementation will become an impossible task.

Officiating pay fixation and pay protection is another issue where thousands of Executives, SDEs, AOs, DEs and CAOs facing pay reduction to the tune of one or two increments. It has to be corrected immediately. DPCs are to be expedited. Assurance of 6% on superannuation benefit is to be implemented. Membership verification to be completed immediately to decide the majority Association. Justice is to be rendered to the Executives of Civil/Elect wings.

So comrades, make extensive preparations for the relay hunger strike from 18-20, May, 2016 and other future programmes. It is a do or die battle for us.

11th May 2016

Dear Comrades, Congratulations. 'WE' have done it again. It's our unity & persistent struggle which made all the difference (It is worth to mention that others are yet to start their struggle!). Today's one day dharna (even in very hot day of May?) forced the management to start dialogue process. Now, our one day struggle compelled the management to accept our first demand i.e. Standard pay scales of E2, E3 replacing E1A and E2A. Today, administrative approval is given by the competent authority & same will be placed before 'Management Committee meeting of BSNL Board'.

CEC Meeting was held at ‘City Palace, Gorakhpur’ on 06th & 07th May, 2016. This meeting was attended by all the branches of UP (East) Circle. Besides Circle Secretary & Circle Presidents, name of PHQ Office bearers who also attended this meeting were Com Anoop Misra Circle Vice-President, Com V.P. Rai  Circle Vice-President, Com R.K. Shukla ACS, Com C.L. Yadav Circle Treasurer, Com Arun Shah Org. Secretary, Com L.N. Tyagi Area Secretary (S), Com Vitul Vaish Area Secretary (C), Com Neeraj Singh Area Secretary (N), Com C.P. Pandey CWC Member, Com D.P. Tripathi CWC Member, Com Amit Katiyar CWC Member. After self introduction, all the PHQ Office bearers/DSs presented their report. Circle Secretary & Circle Treasurer submitted their brief reports before the house which was appreciated by the house and passed also. Lot of healthy discussions was held on the cadre/field issues.

In the forenoon session, An 'Open Session' on 'Strategies to strengthen BSNL' was held. Program was started after 'Deep Prajwalan' by Shri H.R. Shukla CGMT UPE as a 'Chief Guest', Com A.A. Khan President CHQ, Com K. Sebastin GS, Com P.K. Shukla AGS, Com P.K. Sirothiya Circle President, Circle Secretary, Shri Ramji Tiwari GMTD Gorakhpur & Shri R.K. Jaiswal TDM Basti.  

The dignitaries on the dais were Hon'ble Chief Guest Shri H.R. Shukla CGMT, Com G.L. Jogi Chairman, Com A.A. Khan President CHQ, Com K. Sebastin GS, Com P.K. Shukla AGS, Com P.K. Sirothiya Circle President, Circle Secretary, Shri Ramji Tiwari GMTD Gorakhpur, Shri R.K. Jaiswal TDM Basti.  

 The place was fully packed with more than 200 Executives from all over the UP (East) especially from Gorakhpur, Basti, Deoria & its adjacent SSAs.

                Com R.P. Mall DS Gorakhpur welcomed all the dignitaries sitting on the Dias/August gathering.

In the open session, focus was on issues related to growth, expansion and quality of service. In his Key note address, Circle Secretary raised the issue of need of well defined and precise 'HR Plan for the all BSNL Employees' especially for Executives' to fight the competition and thereby creating a healthy working atmosphere for the growth of the BSNL. He also highlighted the problems related to CFA vertical & problems related to the implementation of ERP.

   Com G.L. Jogi Chairman explained the policies of the Government which crippled the Company in the past and present as well. Com Jogi explained in detail the 'Role of Association' for a company like BSNL. He clearly told that unless and until HR issues of Executives are resolved (e.g. Standard pay scales, 30% superannuation benefits, CPSU hierarchy etc.), it is difficult for a company like BSNL defeat its competitors.

Both Com A.A. Khan President CHQ & K. Sebastin GS  in their address explained the importance of issues of Standard pay scales, 30% superannuation benefits, CPSU hierarchy, uniform first time bound promotions etc. He informed that on these issues, some negative forces are now working to derail the resolution. They had started new propaganda to confuse the Executives. Any fresh demand on E2, E3 pay scales or CPSU Hierarchy at this point of time only will derail the settlement as the management is not ready to consider any fresh demands having financial implications. Management wants to stick to Jt. Committee terms of reference and recommendations but due to negative forces, not having enough courage to settle these very important issues. That's why Association severed notice & going to start trade union action from 11.05.2016. Settlement of E2, E3 pay scales may not be the agenda of negative forces as they may not be benefited out of that. Otherwise there is no need to raise fresh demands now after Jt Committee report. During the last 3 to 4 years, all are demanding replacement of non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A with E2 and E3 scales and finally got a positive recommendation from the Jt Committee. After becoming signatory to the recommendations, the reasons behind the fresh demands which raises serious doubts about their motives. Implementation of E2, E3 scales will decide the pay scale of the entry level executives and the grievances of the JTO/JAOs recruited in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 etc. Implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy and first TBP, other two recommendations are fully depending on the settlement of pay scale issue as those recommendations are based on E2 and E3 scales. When all the promotions are stayed by various courts (JTO to SDE both seniority and LDCE, JAO to AO, SDE to DE, AO to CAO, SDE to EE etc), any attempt to delay the implementation of CPSU cadre Hierarchy and 1st TBP in the name of fresh demands will be suicidal. Meanwhile all the efforts are being taken to vacate the stay on various promotions and conduct the DPCs till CPSU hierarchy implementation.

 Superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees to be settled immediately. The assurance given to us of 6% to be implemented in true spirit taking the total contribution to 24%. We are committed to see that maximum contribution is coming from BSNL side as it is for the social welfare of BSNL direct recruits.

Officiating pay fixation issue, an issue which will face reduction and recovery in pay for thousands of SDEs, AOs, DE and CAOs who officiated in DOT or BSNL, after strong intervention by the Association, now management agreed to reconsider the issue. We will not allow any pay reduction or recovery. The wrong clarifications are to be corrected and withdrawn.

'Chief Guest' Hon'ble Shri HR Shukla CGMT in his address informed that now UP (East) Circle started growing very fast and he had taken series of measures to improve the services and curtailing wasteful expenditure. UP (East) is No. 1 in SIM sale for last five months in whole country & revenue has also grown by 4%. By using statuary measures, circle is able to reduce expenditure by 106 crores.The skill of our work force also cannot be underestimated. But we have to take sustained efforts in increasing the revenue and making the 'Customer' delighted. He also highlighted the importance of discipline in our working style & our behavior towards the ‘Customer’ must be courteous. He mentioned that the requirement of the customers is changing day by day. Now 3G/4G, Wi-Fi enabled smart phones are now at the reach of common man. Moreover, young generation wants Data only. But, we are facing stiff competitions and challenges from the Private Operators. We have to strive hard to improve our revenue.

'Open Session' was also address by Com P.K. Shukla AGS, Com P.K. Sirothiya Circle President, Shri Ramji Tiwari GMTD Gorakhpur, Shri R.K. Jaiswal TDM Basti.  All of them expressed their views for the betterment of the Company and role of Executives.

                 Anchoring during 'Open Session' was nicely done by Circle Secretary & Com P.K. Shukla AGS.

In the afternoon, Com G.L. Jogi Chairman, Com A.A. Khan President CHQ, Com K. Sebastin GS & Com P.K. Shukla AGS, addressed the Executives. They  explained developments on career and cadre related issues like: JTO to SDE promotions under both seniority and LDCE quota; Standard pay scale of E2, E3 etc for JTO, SDE and equivalent cadres; Uniform time bound functional promotion/CPSU cadre hierarchy; 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees and efforts of the Association to have a common strategy with all the Unions and Associations on this issue; SDE to DE promotion (Ad-hoc/Regular); EPF related issues; issues related to the Executives of Civil/Electrical/Architect wings; issues related to the JAOs/AOs/CAOs etc.

Association also honored senior comrades Com G.L. Jogi Chairman, Com S.K. Shukla Ex-DS LWTD, Com S.C. Yadav Ex-President CO LW & Com H.R. Gautam for their services rendered to this Association on this occasion.

General Body meeting cum Seminar of Lucknow Telecom District on 11.12.2015:     

         A very well organized Seminar cum General Body meeting of Lucknow Telecom District was held on 11.12.2015 at 'Gandhi Bhawan Lucknow'. Topic of the seminar was 'Quality Service - Our Role'.  Program was inaugurated by Shri GC Srivastava PGM Lw as 'Chief Guest'. The dignitaries sitting on the dais were Hon'ble Chief Guest Shri GC Srivastava PGM, Circle Secretary, Shri Devendra Singh GM(O) Lw, Shri UC Tripathi DGM(A), Shri PC Dubey DGM(F), Shri DP Tripathi CWC Member & Com PK Pandey President Lw. Com SK Shukla DS Lucknow welcomed all the dignitaries sitting on the dias and the august gathering. And all of them were felicitated by presenting with Bouquets. 

        The place was fully packed with Executives and it was attended by almost all the members of the Branch especially young JTOs/Officiating JTOs. Other prominent leaders present were Com Anoop Misra Circle Vice-President, Com RK Shukla ACS, Com CS Paul ACS, Com CL Yadav Circle Treasurer, Com Himanshu Bajpai DS Mobile Lw, Com Dipesh Shukla DS Circle Office Lw & many other senior comrades.

     In the seminar, focus was on issues related to growth, expansion and quality of service. Circle Secretary, in his key note address, raised the issue of need of well defined and precise 'HR/Work plans for the all BSNL Employees' especially for Executives  to fight the competition and thereby creating a healthy working atmosphere for the growth of the BSNL. He told the service quality can be described as the result from customer comparisons between their expectations about the service they will use and their perceptions about the service company. That means that if the perceptions would be higher than the expectations the service will be considered excellent, if the expectations equal the perceptions the service is considered good and if the expectations are not met the service will be considered bad. It is the 'Quality' which would decide who will survive in future.

         Shri Devendra Singh GM(O) highlighted the importance of discipline in our working style. He mentioned that the requirement of the customers is changing day by day. Now 3G/4G, Wi-Fi enabled smart phones are now at the reach of common man. Moreover young generation wants Data only. But, we are facing stiff competitions and challenges from the Private Operators. We have to strive hard to improve our Revenue.      

     'Chief Guest' Hon'ble Shri GC Srivastava told that he had taken series of measures to improve the service and curtailing wasteful expenditure. He told that satisfied customers are likely to become loyal customers and that means that they are also likely to spread positive word of mouth about our company. The skill of our work force also cannot be underestimated. But we have to take sustained efforts in increasing the revenue and making the 'Customer' delighted.

         Anchoring of the seminar was nicely done by Com CP Chaurvedi.

         In the last, vote of thanks was extended by Com PK Pandey, District President Lucknow Telecom District.

Nero is fiddling while Rome is burning

Dear Comrades, couple of days back, Government has issued 'Spectrum Sharing Guidelines', for us it is very necessary to understand the whole issue !!!

Spectrum

Designation

BSNL license Type

Remark

800/850 Mhz

CDMA

CMTS /In process of surrender

Most suitable for 4G LTE alternative band

900 Mhz

2G

CMTS

Not suitable for 4G LTE

1800 Mhz

2G-E

None

Suitable for 4G FDD-LTE (Airtel in all circles)

2100 Mhz

3G

CMTS

3G cannot be replaced soon

2300 Mhz

4G-LTE

None

4G LTE-TDD (Rel Jio in all circles)

2500/2600 Mhz

Wimax

Surrendered-BWA

Uneconomical at present

  1. BSNL doesn’t have UASL license; BSNL have only CMTS & Basic license. Except BSNL/MTNL, all other major operators are having UASL licensees. UASL (Unified Access Service License). As per NTP-2012 permits any service provider to provide service with any technology (CDMA/GSM/UMTS/LTE) in their LSA with allocated spectrum to them. That is, presently license is de-linked from spectrum allocation. UASL licensee can provide even LTE in the CDMA 800 MHz band. So as a matter of fact all operator who have UASL, effectively they have 4G license, they need just need spectrum in suitable band.

  2. Airtel has pan India spectrum for 1800 MHz and Rel Jio has pan India spectrum for 2300 MHz. Both are UASL licensee. MTS/ Reliance Communications have Pan India spectrum of 800 MHz, these are also UASL licensee. Therefore Spectrum sharing would be boon for them.

  3. The suitable band for LTE (1800 & 2300 MHz) have problem with indoor coverage; low frequency bands e.g. 800 MHz are most suitable alternative. Since it is inevitable to roll out 4G-LTE services, Rel Jio is going for 800 MHz in big way. 900 MHz cannot be used since its carrier is only 200 kHz whereas LTE requires at least 5 MHz contiguous band. BSNL is being forced to surrender most valued spectrum of 800 MHz band (in last auction of spectrum, it outperformed even 900 MHz band).

  4. BSNL was forced to surrender valuable CDMA Spectrum which could be the entry point for BSNL’s LTE-4G. BSNL has surrendered spectrum (one carrier of 1.25 MHz each) for 4 circles on 11th August, 2015, just before this spectrum sharing has been allowed ! All this to drive BSNL out of 4G race completely !

  5. BSNL CMTS license is for 20 years means up to year 2020, as per new TRAI suggestion to the Government. This Spectrum will be again given to BSNL on liberalized rate ( at market rate as opposed to administrative rate). So, heavy payment is waiting for BSNL in 2019 !

  6. In short, BSNL doesn't have 4G spectrum in 1800/2300 MHz band, BSNL would surrender 800 MHz spectrum & BSNL CMTS license for 900 / 2100 MHz CMTS service would expire on 2020. Where are we heading ?????
