Com Dilip Saha CS and Com Sankar Sanyal President met GM/Finance to know the status on some long pending issues. Association reminded on incorrect payment of TA/DA  to JTOs who had undergone phase I training at Jaipur and at present working in under DGM/BKP. It also reminded of non payment of medical bill to Pulak Dasgupta DE/NSCBTTC for more than one year. 

The case of Partha Ghosh, SDE pertaining to continuance in GPF instead of EPF is still not resolved.

GM asked for the details once again and assured to look into both the cases. In regard to the case of Partha Ghosh, he said to have taken up the issue with DOT and would pursue the same after the present spell of holidays. He is optimistic to resolve the issue. 

Association wished a very happy Durga Puja and Dussehra coming ahead. 


Com Dilip Saha CS and Com Sankar Sanyal President met CGM/CTD to wish him a happy and festive Durga Puja and Dussehra. CGM reciprocated the same to all and hope the sincere effort of all will definitely turn around CTD. He intimated on the grim financial condition in BSNL and listed out the extent of revenue loss in some of the big circles, including Kerela, AP , Maharastra. There is an overall dip of 23% in terms of remittances resulting in significant loss in cash flow. The concept of reckoning on ABF for the purpose of accounting has lost its efficacy. Its the remittances received that clearly reflects on cash flow.

Association spoke of immense pressure in field units, particularly in CSCs and CFA vertical where meeting targets has become a challenging task. The situation has drastically changed with the entry of Reliance Jio in 2016. Operational effort apart,  change in policy is also needed to revive BSNL. CGM, however is of the view that PSUs, normally should not expect of govt’s investment; rather, it should set up its own mechanism to stay viable. He readily agrees that there is pressure in fields without which it will be hard to sustain. Association conveyed that the executives by and large have tuned themselves to changing demands and are delivering accordingly. But during these festive days, they look forward to a whiff of relief to be with family and friends and observe the rituals of this great festival of Durga Puja in West Bengal. A relief from constant attrition is necessary during festive days to start with fresh impetus.  CGM felt the sentiments of people of West Bengal connected to Durga Puja festival and echoed his sentiments too. He also expects, critical moments of demands also be responded and wished all a happy Durga Puja and Dussehra. 


Com Dilip Saha CS, Com Sankar Sanyal President and Com Soumen Ghosh ACS met Sr GM/HR & Admin to discuss on scarcity of executives in various operational Areas. Given the stiff target set to achieve in selling SIMs and other BSNL products alongwith services under CFA, Trans and CMTS domains, its becoming very hard to run the show in fields. The matter is further worsening over the days due to  substantial superannuation and in absence of recruitment in entry cadre. The situation warrants for judicious deployment of executives and staff to bring about near uniformity. 

Sr GM/HR & Admin sought information on units with acute shortage so that executives joining from other circles either on promotion or transfer can be considered for those positions. 

Association further reminded on non release of JTOs under Rule 8 transfer. Even though CGM/CTD approved  the cases of Rule 8 transfer long back, yet it is observed, some candidates are not being released on the plea of posting substitutes. It was reminded that during promotion to the cadre of JTO many were posted under different areas. The Corporate Office order also directed to release Rule 8 transfer cases  either against direct recruit JTOs or promotees. Unfortunately, inspite of approval from competent authority, local establishment are not releasing the concerned JTOs. 

Sr GM HR & Admin assured to  look into the case.

Com Dilip Saha CS, Com Sankar Sanyal President, Com Soumen Ghosh ACS, Com HareKrishna Fouzdar and Com Tapas Ghosh CS/SNEA/WB met Smt Sujatha T Ray, Dir HR at Oberoi Grand to get the latest status on some long pending pressing issues. Shri K C Ghosh PGM/NWO/CFA was also present in the meeting.

Com Dilip Saha enquired on E2/E3 pay scales for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO respectively- Dir/HR informed of DOT’s wrong interpretation on payscales awarded to JTO/JAO and SDE/AO during formation of BSNL. It held it as a one time dispensation for BSNL absorbees and that the BSNL recruitees are entitled to E1 payscales which is uttrly incorrect. CMD instructed to take up the issue with DOT once again and  accordingly Dir/HR will send a clarification to DOT in this regard soon. However, she suggested association take up the issue with the highest authority of DOT. She felt, taking up the issue with Secretary DOT would be a better option.

On 3rd PRC–she said hon’ble minister was keen to see 3rd PRC comes up but over the last few months there is no initiation visible in this regard. The financial position of BSNL is plummeting over the days endangering the prospect of 3rd PRC. However, it is to be noted that govt has provided clearance to proceed on Wage Negotiation Committee but then the case in respect of executives is yet to get a clear signal. She also said that there is some activities palpable in preparing cabinet memo but nothing can be assured at this stage. Association informed of trade union program notified by SNEA to demand E2/E3 IDA payscales and 3rd PRC besides others.

CPSE Hierarchy-She said the draft is awaiting report of the committee meant to address on reservation. The matter needs to be examined to insulate it from legal implications in future. Management is contemplating for DPC to the extent feasible in various cadres and thereafter undertake the notification.

Group Term Insurance--Association insisted to finalize the policy without further delay. Dir/HR informed to be nearing completion the negotiations with the concerned agency. She hopes to complete the exercise soon.

There were other issues discussed in brief due to time constraint. She assured to discuss further next time. Association conveyed its sincere thanks for granting the meeting
