*An Appeal to all Executives of UP (East) Circle*

       My Friends, Please Vote for SNEA @ Sl. No. 9 and elect SNEA as the recognized association with huge majority. SNEA is capable to protect the interest of all sections of Executives (Telecom, Finance, Civil, Electrical, PA/PS, Rajbhasa, Architect, etc.) and the Company as well. As an Executive, your role is very vital for the whole Executive cadre as well as Company. I don’t think there is any doubt about my sincerity/capability towards you as a faculty of training center.

      After the ensuing membership verification, there will be only two Associations in the BSNL, the recognized majority Association and the support Association. Other Associations will not even have the right for an informal meeting with the Management at any level. All policy matters and HR issues will be discussed and negotiated only with the majority Association and no other Association, including the support Association will have these rights. Therefore in the membership contest, the majority that the recognized Association can accrue matters most, in terms of the bargaining power it can command. 

     Multiplicity of Associations will only help and aid the management, not the Executives, in derailing resolution of issues in a manner it is being done now. A strong Executive Association, like those in other CPSUs, can dictate the future of the Executives in BSNL. Even a single vote lost by the majority Association will cost the Executives dearly and the loss, if created cannot be offset in the near future.

    Therefore, it is my fervent appeal to stand in favour of the only Association that is commanding the maximum support in the current scenario. No one has any doubt that it is the SNEA. Any vote not polled or against the SNEA is a vote to the Management to rule the Executives like dictators.

    I, therefore, appeal to each and every Executive to go to the polling booths on 7th December to vote for the Executives and against the Management   Yes, take it as your honorable responsibility to cast your valuable votes in favour of the SANCAHR NIGAM EXECUTIVES ASSOCIATION at Sl. No 9 to strengthen the hands of the Executives and choose the SNEA to be the recognized Association with a huge majority and great bargaining power.

I have visited all 31 SSAs/Units even in some SSAs several times to have one to one interaction with Executives to know their Field/HR issues. But, how many SSAs, CSs of other Associations visited. Associations can't be run 'WhatsApp', a virtual platform. But, our issues are not virtual. They are real. To resolve the issues, one has to do lot of real/physical efforts, pursuance. This naturally gives pain. But, without pain nothing can be gain, at least in BSNL Comparison on website's contents may be the eye opener as far as work done by SNEA UPE Circle & others: Even, they are not updating their websites.

Today, a meeting was convened in the chamber of CGM regarding ‘Membership Verification’. Only Four Associations were present. SNEA was represented by Circle Secretary & Com Dipesh Shukla DS Circle Office Lucknow. We raised the issue of irregularity in voter lists. It was decided that Voter list of Lucknow will be uploaded today on portal. Voter list of remaining list SSAs will be uploaded tomorrow on portal.

Attention to All DSs/ PHQ Office Bearers: - Any discrepancy in voter list may be brought to the notice of Shri Atul Sharma, DGM (Admin) & Returning Officer Circle Office Lucknow. (Mail ID: atulsharma100@gmail.com).

 It is worth to mention that only six Associations are contesting in UPE Circle and today's presence is as follows:

  1. AIBSNEA – OS & DS Present. CS Absent

  2. AIBSNLOA – Only CS Present. Not having any DS

  3. AITEEA – No representative in the Circle appeared till date. Obliviously both CS & DS Absent

  4. ABLE - No representative in the Circle appeared till date. Obliviously both CS & DS Absent

  5. BEAB (Bahujan) – CS & DS Present

  6. BBOA - Both CS & DS Absent

  7. BASE (India) - No representative in the Circle appeared till date. Obliviously both CS & DS Absent

  8. BOA - Both CS & DS Absent

  9. SNEA – Both CS & DS Present. Only SNEA took part in the discussion. All others were silent.

  10. TSOA - No representative in the Circle appeared till date. Obliviously both CS & DS Absent

         During the meeting, it was also reminded by the Administration that only SNEA has given the name of Polling/Counting Agent and none of the other Associations have given the names of Polling/Counting Agents. Comrades just see the sincerity of the Associations. The real fact is that most of the Associations are only on the paper or on virtual world (WhatsApp). That’s why they are not able to provide the names of Polling/Counting agents.

Meeting with Hon'ble CGMT UPE on 28.11.2016:

        Circle Secretary met Hon'ble Shri TN Shukla CGMT UPE. Detailed discussion was held on HR issues related to Executives of UPE Circle especially Kanpur SSA. Lot of discussions took place on problems faced by the Executives posted in field/outdoors & low SIM sale in the Circle.

28th November 2016

GS writes to CMD, BSNL --- Immediate intervention to stop the demotion of the basic cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO from E1A scale to E1 and E2A scale to E2 -- BSNL proposal in two parts creating problems in DoT which has to be cleared by BSNL management to save the proposal. The DoT note sheet on the proposal clearly establishes the fact that the second part of the BSNL proposal to upgrade all the pay scales upto E7 is opposed by DoT, resulting into the rejection of even E2, E3 pay scales proposal in the first part. Any attempt to demote the cadres and denying the legitimate pay scales of E2, E3 will lead to industrial turmoil in the company. This may be treated as an advance trade union notice.

28th November 2016

Developments on standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A: Addl Secretary, Telecom has returned the file back to Member(Fin) with some adverse comments even on replacement of E1A and E2A scales with E2 and E3. The BSNL proposal in two parts is 1) replacement of E1A and E2A pay scales by E2 and E3 and 2) further upgardation of all the pay scales upto E7. DoT Finance justifying the upgradation of E1A to E2 and E2A to E3 but the proposal for upgradation of all the pay scales from E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7 is not supporting citing huge financial implication on pension. This is becoming the stumbling block as we suspected. The nodal PSU section is not supporting the proposal at all. Addl Secretary, Telecom recommended replacing E1A with E1 scale and E2A with E2 scale for the new recruits.

Demand of SNEA on this issue is very clear from the note sheet itself (read page 1, 11 and 23 carefully. Page 23 reveals the actual stumbling block which was hiding while circulation in the WhatsApp).

It is a dangerous move and we have to respond organizationally, immediately once the membership verification is completed. We alerted CMD/BSNL about this developments and closely watching initiative from CMD.

>>>>> Copy of the Note sheet received through RTI.

28th November 2016

This is with respect to some misleading information posted in the website by some Associations. Eventhough it is not our culture to respond to such write ups who runs the Associations through websites, some facts are given below to update our members, supporters and well wishers.

Standard pay scales of E2, E3, --- E7 was the demand of SNEA since the agitation in 2002 for finalising the terms and condition for absorption. All other Assns (now AIBSNLEA) were agreeing for absorption just for an adhoc payment of Rs 2000, without knowing the basic terms and conditions for absorption like pay scales, promotion policy and fitment formula. In collusion with management they tried to sabotage the agitation of SNEA(then TEOA). BSNL offered E1, E2, -- E6 pay scales during negotiation. After five days of agitation paralysing the whole country, negotiated settlement reached between SNEA and BSNL mgt. As per agreement, BSNL agreed for E1A, E2A, --- E6 pay scales, five TB promotions upto SG JAG between 4-6 years and point to point fitment.

 

Next day of the settlement, GS of TESA(now AIBSNLEA) updated in their website: I (GS of TESA) met Secretary, Telecom and discussed the agreement made by the other Association. He was furious against CMD. By giving promotion in 4 to 6 years, BSNL will become bankrupt. With great difficulty, I convinced him for 8 years. He also told us to convince the other Association for 8 years. Now everybody can decide the contribution of AIBSNLEA(then TESA) in deciding the pay scales, five TB promotions between 4-6 years and fitment formula during absorption. When SNEA got a settlement of TBP between 4 to 6 years in the previous day with BSNL management, AIBSNLEA got a settlement of TBP after 8 years from Secretary/DoT, the very next day!

After 2nd PRC, individually and in United Forum, SNEA struggled for E2, E3, -- E7 pay scales from 2009 to 2014. When the demand for upgradation of all the pay scales upto E7 become the stumbling block even to get the standard pay scales of E2 and E3, with the threat of demotion of the basic cadres from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2 pay scales, SNEA taken a strategic decision in 2014 to focus on E2, E3 pay scales for the time being to protect the basic cadres from demotion. Others insisted for upgradation of all the pay scales and even someone demanded E2, E3 scales from 01.10.2000. Thereafter SNEA alone started agitations which resulted in the final rejection of the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A by DPE in 2014 and reconstitution of the defunct Joint Committee as Khan Committee on 07th May, 2015 which AIBSNLEA protested at that time.

 

When DoT rejected the BSNL proposal from E2 to E7, other Assns agreed to SNEA proposal limiting the demand to E2, E3 alone and UF served notice on 17.08.2016. But during discussions, AIBSNLEA again started insisting for cascading factor. If cascading factor and upgradation of all pay scales upto E7 in case E1A and E2A are upgraded to E2 and E3 scales is not insisted by them, pl go through the website updations of AIBSNLEA on 23.08.16, 02.09.16, 15.09.16, 21.09.16, 22.09.16, 23.09.16, 29.09.16 and 26.10.16. Let the Executives decide who is misleading.

In the last combined meeting of UF with CMD, AIBSNLEA categorically told that E2, E3 without cascading effect upto E7 scale is not acceptable for them. Can they deny it?

Why the repeated request of SNEA to the other Assns to meet CMD and DIR(HR) and tell them to modify the proposal limiting it to replacement of E1A to E2 and E2A to E3 keeping the cascading demand pending is not accepted by AIBSNLEA? If they are serious on the issue, today also we can go together and save the proposal of E2 and E3. Are they ready?

To know the stand of SNEA, read page 1, 11 and 23 carefully of note sheet of DoT published in our website on 27th. Page 23 reveals the actual stumbling block.

The JAOs of 2013 and 2015 facing demotion to E1 and E2 scales has to make introspection to whom they are supporting in the membership verification.

If they want to merge SDE and Sr SDE grade, why they are demanding implementation of Khan Committee recommendation on CPSU Hierarchy? Khan Committee recommended promotions from JTO to SDE, SDE to Sr SDE and Sr SDE to DE equivalent grades. Why they made Khan Committee recommendations proposing promotions from JTO to SDE, SDE to Sr SDE and Sr SDE to DE? Why they given a joint letter on 31.08.2016 alongwith SNEA demanding promotions from JTO to SDE, SDE to Sr SDE and Sr SDE to DE as per Khan committee recommendations in the response to CPSU Cadre Hierarchy? Let them publically say that they didn’t accept Khan Committee recommendations and don’t want to implement CPSU Cadre Hierarchy at all? They are making contradictory demands for what?

Accepting merger of SDE and Sr SDE grades will result in losing one promotion and finally E2, E3, --- E6 scales will come with 4 promotions closing the doors for five promotions and E7 scale in the future. In addition to this it will create huge anomalies and endless litigations which results into cascading factor which BSNL and DoT opposing. It is known to all Executives that as per terms and condition and EPP, no Executive can remain in a grade for more than 5 years. So BSNL and DoT will be bound to give one promotion with fixation increment after five years from SDE to Sr SDE as done in other CPSUs in similar situations and no Executive will remain in a scale for 10 years without promotion as propagated by them.

 

The demand of merger of SDE and Sr SDE grades is another Delay tactics on implementation of CPSU Hierarchy just like E2, E3 pay scales. They are trying to sabotage both E2, E3 pay scale proposal and CPSU Cadre Hierarchy implementation by making new new demands like upgradation of all the pay scales, merger of grades etc etc after making Khan Committee recommendations which they very well know that management and DoT will not agree at all. They are playing this in connivance with the management.

Majority of their members are either CAO/AGMs or DGMs. They are least bothered about E2, E3 pay scales or CPSU Cadre Hierarchy as they are not at all affected/beneficiaries. Remaining are from Accounts wings. They didn’t face stagnation in promotions like other cadres. So comrades, you decide who is playing with the future of Executives.

 

Fast track promotions are there in BSNL like LICE, LDCE etc to motivate the young and talented Executives. SNEA opposed Extl MT and reduced it from 100% to 12.5% in BSNLMS RR for the Engg side. Why others could not do it for the Accounts wing, atleast this much? Further SNEA is strongly opposing any Extl MT as huge pool of talent is there within BSNL. Fast track mechanisms and methods are required for screening them and taking few of them to the top positions. During ITS absorption, onetime rect of Extl DGMs making Intl candidates eligible was our demand, as a onetime measure. But what others did --- they fought for eligibility, written the DGM examination, fought in the PCAT and High Court for eligibility. When they lost everywhere, they are opposing DGM rect? What a hypocrisy! They want DGM rect if they made eligible, otherwise don’t want and don’t want Intl MT! In future SNEA will fight to ensure that Intl MT also will be modified with suitable mechanisms with the approval of competent body. 

30% Superannuation benefits has come to lime light by the agitation of Joint Action Council in 2012 along with 78.2% IDA demand. When CMD offered 4% in 2013 and 6% in 2015 to SNEA they termed it as a compromise. But when they simply accepted just 3% on 19.02.2016 without even a single word of protest, is it an achievement? They even didn’t updated their website about their meeting with DIR(HR) on 19.02.2016 in the absence of SNEA and BSNLEU, fearing the Employees. If we could have started the fund in 2014 as suggested by SNEA, by this time minimum there could have been 2 to 3 lakhs rupees in the account of each and every employee and the contribution would have minimum 6% or even more. SNEA got minimum 6% and other Assns 3%. Who betrayed the Employees? Utilising our excellent relations with BSNLEU and NFTE(BSNL) we will fight for full 30% Superannuation benefits.

CEC Meet at Lucknow from 21.11.2016 to 22.11.2016 >>>>> Click here for photos

"Open Session' at Lucknow on 21.11.2016>>>>> Click here for photos

CEC Meeting was held at Lucknow on 21st & 22nd November, 2016. This meeting was attended by all the 36 branches of UP (East) Circle. Besides Circle Secretary & Circle Presidents, name of PHQ Office bearers who also attended this meeting were Com PK Sirothiya Circle President, Com Anoop Mishra Circle Vice-President, Com RK Prasad Circle Vice-President, Com RK Shukla ACS, Com Pradeep Agrawal ACS (C/E), Com CL Yadav Circle Treasurer, Com Arun Shah Org. Secretary, Com LN Tyagi Area Secretary (S), Com Virendra Singh Area Secretary (E), Com Vitul Vaish Area Secretary (C), Com Neeraj Singh Area Secretary (N), Com CP Pandey CWC Member, Com Amit Katiyar CWC Member. After self introduction, all the PHQ Office bearers/DSs presented their report. Lot of healthy discussions was held on the cadre/field issues/Executives' Member Verification.

In the Afternoon session, An 'Open Session' on topic of 'One Management - One Association' was held at Hindi Sansthan Auditorium. Program was inaugurated by Com A.A. Khan President CHQ & Com P.K. Shukla AGS.  

The dignitaries on the dais were Com A.A. Khan President CHQ, Com P.K. Shukla AGS, Com P.K. Sirothiya Circle President, Circle Secretary, Com Anoop Mishra Circle Vice-President, Com RK Prasad Circle Vice-President, Com C.P. Pandey CWC Member & Com Amit Katiyar CWC Member The place was almost packed with more than 250 Executives.

     Com Deepesh Shukla DS Circle Office 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 & the role of Association. 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 floated the concept of 'Swarajya' for resolutions of all issues. He also highlighted the plight of Executive cadre in the field.

   Com PK Shukla AGS 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 to defeat its competitors.  He informed that on these issues, some negative forces are now working to derail the whole HR process. Almost daily, these so-called custodians of Executives starting new-new propaganda to confuse the Executives.

Com AA Khan President CHQ explained in detail the importance of 'One Management - One Association'. In his address, Com Khan explained the importance of issues of Standard pay scales, 30% superannuation benefits, CPSU hierarchy, uniform first time bound promotions, etc. The E2, E3 stand pay scales are delaying due to the dubious stand taken by some Associations. The basic cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO are under threat of demotion from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2. No other cadre in BSNL is facing such a threat. The upgradation of all the existing scales comes only after this. So, SNEA strongly feels that stopping the demotion of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO cadres as the most important issue before 3rd PRC and pursues accordingly. Once E2, E3 pay scales are implemented, the pay parity (Rs 22820 fixation) issue will be pursued. So all the JTO/JAOs should be united to get E2, E3 pay scales and pay parity and give an image of unity before the management. E2, E3 pay scales settlement will lead to E2, E3, -- E7 in the immediate future. SNEA will struggle for the social security of all the BSNL direct recruited employees. We missed the opportunity in 2015 to start with 6% due treason of some associations. Term Insurance or Corpus Fund formation will be pursued strongly to support the family of the employees in case of untimely death. Since all the promotions are stayed due to various court cases, CPSU cadre hierarchy will be implemented at the earliest. By that all seniority related issues can be resolved. Since all seniority lists and RRs except JTO/JAO RRs will be scrapped, all litigations will end on its implementation. Efforts are taken to address all seniority disputes like 5, 6, 7, 8 etc in CPSU Hierarchy. SNEA will ensure that the JTOs lost their service by delay in the promotion due to court cases will be compensated with suitable relaxation in qualifying service in CPSU Hierarchy to bring them at par with others who promoted earlier. It is the time to strengthen the hands of SNEA for early implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. The recent judgment from Hon CAT, Chandigarh will be a big obstacle on conduction of DPC and promotion in all the cadres, JTO to SDE (SCF and LDCE), SDE to DE/EE etc. BSNL is shortly filing appeal against the CAT judgment in higher courts to enable promotions. First TBP, Officiating pay fixation and protection of pay, notional pay of E1A, E2A w.e.f 01.10.2000 etc are other important issues. The 3rd PRC implementation is the biggest challenge before all of us. All the issues requires sustained struggle with commitment and dedication. Such struggles can be done only by SNEA, that is the history. SNEA is having the strength and will power for making successful struggles in case negotiations fail. For that purposes, all Executives should be united and should strengthen the hands of SNEA. The majority of the recognized Association will decide the future of all the Executives and it is the time to strengthen SNEA with your valuable votes. The very purpose of membership verification is to strengthen the majority recognized Association and give maximum bargaining power to it. A strong SNEA will ensure a strong BSNL.

'Open Session' was also address by Com Pavitra Singh DS Jhansi, Com Praveen Verma DS Lucknow TD and Com RP Mall DS Gorakhpur. All of them expressed their views for the betterment of the Company and role of Executives and emphasizes the need of only one Association in the company for our career growth.

A marvelous well organized General Body Meeting of Fatehpur was held on 14.09.2016 and it was attended by all the Executives of the branch especially young Executives. 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.

Executives from all the CPSUs will be joining the Dharna. We have to create tremendous pressure on the Govt to  constitute 3rd PRC.

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.

'हम होंगे कामयाब'

प्रिय सदस्यों एवं सभी एक्जीक्यूटिव्ज से निवेदन है कि 18 से 20 मई, 2016 तक होने वाली 'क्रमिक भूख हड़ताल' मे अवश्य भाग लें और इसे सफल बनाये। यह लड़ाई हमारे वर्तमान एवं सुनहरे भविष्य के लिए है जब तक की हमारी मांगे पूरी नहीं होंगी, हम संघर्ष करते रहेंगे।

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.

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.
