Meeting with GM/CFA/ East held on 14/02/2018 at Salt Lake—-It was an introductory meet after assuming his charge as GM/CFA/East.  A general discussion was held on service matter, business viability and constraints in human resource to run the show. GM expressed serious concern over declining business and staff constraint in operational area. Association expressed on lack of established system to consolidate business and make the brand occur. The pressure exerted by authority, indeed increase services to customers but fails to preserve long term objective. The policies framed are acting to the detriment of BSNL and mere hard work cannot be a lone substitute to turn around the company. Work in haste, sometimes makes officials vulnerable to scrutiny for not adhering to laid down rules. Every organisation has to have a system secured, functional and feasible to deliver effectively. 

GM expressed, the time is critical and to balance by rationalizing the system and also deliver our product in time is turning out to be challenging.  He expressed on his constraint and compulsion for pulling human resource in area of acute shortage from among the existing pool and sought cooperation in this regard. 

 Association also discussed on absentee records being asked for the strike days on 12th & 13th of Dec 2017 and on severe inconvinience faced by some executives for being posted far away from residence. He informed to consider the requests soon there is a little improvement in situation.  

Com Dilip Saha CS, Com Soumen Ghosh ACS, Com Sankar Sanyal Jt Secretary(E), Com Prasanta Ray Org Secretary, Com Sajal Chatterjee Zonal Secretary, Com D Poddar CE Member, Com Shyamal Chowdhury and Com M Dasgupta represented SNEA/CTC



SNEA/CTC welcomed a large and enthusiastic group of young JTOs at CTO/building who are poised to infuse huge energy in the activity of the association. This group had innumerable queries and suggestions in their mind for clarity and welfare of the organisation. There were suggestions to include some new entrants for inputs on E2/E3 payscales for JTO/JAO &SDE/AOs and other equivalent cadres, seeming observation of decline in intense of struggle with respect to E2/E3 payscales, keeping confidence in SNEA for ultimate deliverance and revealing the vested groups who are deliberately misinterpreting, inculcating confusion and derailing the process. CPSE Hierarchy is on the anvil and by virtue of consistent struggle the target of 30% superannuation benefits is closing its gap, gradually. Com Shivdhar, Com Debasis Mullick Com Hare Krishna Fouzdar, Com Anjan Bhattacharya, Com Biswajit Biswas, Com Sujoy Mahinder, Com Sanjay Yadav, Com Abhijit Biswas and others with all honesty had put forth their queries, sought clarifications, extended suggestions on issues recorded.  

Com Dilip Saha, CS explained in details the causes for delay in achieving our demands and how CHQ is relentlessly working to see it happen. The case of E2/E3 payscales has been deliberately sent to DoPT /DoE instead of DPE to see it gets delayed further. Inspite of negative intent of DOT, association is playing a commendable role by keeping keen watch on its progress. It ought to be kept in mind that large disparity in pay among JTO/JAO is also to be settled without further delay. Now, coming to promotion, CPSE Hierarchy is awaited for Board’s scrutiny before final approval. It has to be ensured that DOT and independent representatives in Board are thoroughly detailed by BSNL before its consideration. Many executives are awaiting promotion for last more than 18 years and any further delay in its implementation will be highly demoralizing. The target for 30% superannuation benefit is well on the course. It took a lot of time to consolidate the issue among all stake holders. Irrespective of profit/loss of the organisation, association did force its way in increasing the contribution. This apart, it would not be wise act to keep silent on 3rd PRC. Its a well known fact that BSNL, being a 100% CPSE is defined to meet social obligation at subsidized rates. It is mandatory for BSNL to serve NOFN, LWE and other non viable projects in meeting government’s objectives. The core business of BSNL is getting overlooked. The entire obligation is bound to make the organisation profitless. So, citing profitability cause to deny the benefits of 3rd PRC to BSNL employees is nothing but a mockery of interpretation and a travesty of justice. Its time to ride over petty differences and face the hostility with sheer grit and determination. It is this young force that will keep the flame of BSNL burning. In matter of local issues, there were suggestions to make quarter allotment online and enroll executives in JETCCS having permanent residence in other states. Association informed to take up the issue with the concerned platform.

Association conveys its unqualified appreciation to the young and spirited members who made this congregation to happen and come out with pertinent views on various unresolved issues.  It also feels proud to learn that many who could not turn up was badly engaged with office related work. This speaks of the sense of responsibility among the young members and how it enlightens an association. 

Com Sankar Sanyal Jt Secretary(E), Com Prasanta Ghosh Organising Secretary, Com Soumen Ghosh ACS and Com Tapan Chakraborty, President addressed the house.
