Encouraging turn out on the second day of the Full Day Dharna. Hundreds of executives turned up at Telephone Bhavan to sit in dharna against management’s absolute indifferent attitude to resolve the most fundamental demands of E2/E3 IDA Payscales for JTO/JAO and SDE/AOs respectively, 30% superannuation benefit for BSNL recruitees and implementation of CPSU Hierarchy. Time has come to demonstrate exceptional solidarity and unity to combat the management/DOT to to the most justifiable demands. Members of all three constituent association arrived in hordes braving the rain splashed weather. The CSs, C/Presidents, CHQ Office bearers and other office bearers belonging to the participant associations under the banner of United Forum addressed the gathering. From SNEA, Com Soumen Ghosh, ACS, Com Nirmal Sarkar C/President, Com Sankar Sanyal Jt Secretary(E) and Com Dilip Saha CS deliberated on the demands with appeal to all intensify the agitation further, if the authority continues to deprive or skirt the issues.
Com Dilip Saha CS and Com Nirmal Sarkar President met GM/HR & Admin to discuss on forwarding the inter circle prayers and options called for WBTC as tenure circle. Association explained that since CTD administration is not in a position to retain the longest stayees in the event of transfer to tenure circle being longest stayees, it will definitely be a prudent decision to forward the options for WBTC. Some executives, who joined from other circles have completed more than two years and had appealled for forwarding of their prayers. Association requested to forward the same since issuance of transfer order gives no confirmation for release. Such instance has become unique in CTD where the executives had to wait for release through ERP. On one hand the prayers are not forwarded on other hand the release are awaited till ERP effects it—both cannot be allowed. GM assured to take up the case once again with CGM/CTD
Rule 8 transfer- association brought to attention how other circles like KTK, Odisha etc are effecting Rule 8 release in lieu of new incumbent i.e TTAs promoted to JTO in LICE . There is no reason holding the matured cases of Rule 8 in CTD. GM said that he would discuss the matter with CGM in the light of information provided by the association.
Leave Encashment & Insurance Payment–It is highly regrettable that even after more than a year no policy could be taken as to which wing would process the case of Leave Encashment & Insurance Amount following superannuation. Instances have been brought to your notice wherein executives,those who have retired for close to a tear or more are still awaiting for payment of leave encashment and insurance. It is reportedly learnt, the accounts wing dealing with issue has stopped processing. Whatever be the reason, the retirees are being subjected to harrassment and deprived of interest too. The matter requires urgent attention to bring about settlement.
GM assured, he will call for the file and do his best to arrive at some policy decision in this regard.
General Body Meeting of Srirampur Zone held at UTP Telephone Exchange Bldg. Members expressed severe grievances against executives of some outfits who are deliberately shunning responsibility to take charges against posts that fell vacant either due to retirement or transfer. This has become an epidemic bringing the system to a grinding halt. The administration should come down heavily on this delinquent executives in order to save the system. Com P .K Ghosh spoke of the problems being faced by our members and how as responsible executives, our members are taking additional responsibility. Com Kousik Bhowmick spoke of long pending transfer orders awaiting implementation. Members spoke irrational pressure being created by administration to comply with untenable demands.
Com Nirmal Sarkar President, directed the members to combat with courage and responsibility. He suggested the senior officers to play strict to put an end to such outrageous defiance and not to buckle under pressure to comply with irrational requests of authority. He said that scarcity of staff is everywhere but in some areas it is more intense. Circle Body would take up the matter with CTD management in this regard.
Com Soumen Ghosh ACS, addressed the house on membership verification and urged upon all to take proactive roll in enrolling members. He elaborated on the association’s role in uplifting the basic cadre of JTO, since IVth CPC. He spoke on our struggle to achieve E2/E3 for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO equivalent cadres. Com Ghosh concluded by appealing all to participate in full day dharna on 6th and 7th of Sept 2016 at Telephone Bhavan.
Com Dilip Saha, CS exhorted the members to abide by rules and implement it strictly for others too. The instances of defiance should be stemmed by invoking conduct rules. Members should fight fiercely to ensure the disturbing few do not rule the roost. He assured, he would take up the matter with higher management to put an end to such activity. CS, spoke of membership verification and instructed zonal body to reach out to all executives briefing them on how this association shaped the cadre, particularly the basic cadre of JTO/JAO and equivalent. He instructed all to participate in the ensuing dharna called by United Forum at Telephone Bhavan. The time is crucial, so any delay in reaction would make us miss the bus to clinch the demand for E2/E3 payscales for JTO/JAO, SDE/AO and equivalent cadres, 30 % superannuation benefit and CPSE Hierarchy. Given the 3rd PRC already constituted, the timing of this trade union program assumes further significance calls for strong and active participation.
