Com Dilip Saha CS met Shri Amit Bhattacharya CGM/CTD to express concern on longest stayee list for the cadre of SDE/DE/DGM. The concept of Terrirorial Circle is being applied erroneously leading to numerous representations from executives for correct preparation the longest stayee list. Instances of executives who served out of territorial jurisdiction of Calcutta Telephones has been taken into consideration. On the contrary, the period served outside the jurisdiction of Calcutta telephones should not have been considered for calculating stay in the territorial circle of Cal;cutta Telephones. CGM informed that he would look into the matter and that the administration had already sought clarification in this regard from Corporate Office. CS insisted to make some senior officers to speak to Corporate office since the clarification is long awaited.

CS requested CGM to forward the prayers for transfer of those who joined from other Circles. A lot many SDEs and DEs, mostly from AP, TN and CHTd appealed for transfer on completion or near completion of two years. In accordance to latest order, if the forwarding are not sent by first week of Sept 2015 to Corporate Office, then there is all likelihood of not being considered for the review period of Oct to Dec 2015. CGM replied to be aware of the matter and would consult soon to consider the issue. However, he would be strict in getting substitutes.

CGM requested to see the association take active role in matter of services to turn around Calcutta Telephones. The revenue is dwindling day by day and it would not augur well for Calcutta Telephones. CS informed of the ensuing AIC from 4th Sept to 7th Sept 2015 at Jaipur/Rajasthan where the association would raise the issue plaguing CTD and would make CHQ to prevail upon management to consider the requirement of men and materials and fund to develop services in CTD.


Com Dilip Saha CS, Com Nirmal Sarkar President and Com Soumen Ghosh ACS Com Sudeshna and Com Tarun Ray met GM/Finance on immediate implementation of Corporate office order regarding exercising of option for JAO 2010 Batch, This will help stem deducting pay; rather the executives would continue to get deserved pay for validating the option. The matter of arrears vis a vis due and drawn need s to be settled in the spirit of the order.

There are cases of accounts executives who worked on deputation in DOT. Though DOT is separate establishment, yet the posting period served by executives in DOT has been taken into consideration for fixing the longest stayee list leading to erroneous transfer order from Corporate office. It is learnt that a mention on period of posting in DOT has been inserted in the remark column but association insisted to seek clarification. If required.

Association sought information on revenues in different vertical and had a discussion on financial health of Calcutta Telphones.

In matter of audit objection raised on preponing the first time bound promotion of JTOs, thereby deducting the excess amount from terminal benefit of those who are retiring was explained once again. Association pointed to its wider implication since many have been fixed in the same manner. GM sought further time to look into the matter to resolve.


Com Dilip Saha CS, Com Nirmal Sarkar President and Com Soumen Ghosh ACS met GM/HR & Admin for posting JTOs and SDEs in Areas where there is acute shortage, namely Srirampur, BKP, Central etc. Association also reminded of closure of some units for redeployment of executives in a judicious manner. Some cases were convincingly justified for posting of executives.

In matter of longest stayee list in the cadre of SDEs, many are representing on erroneous consideration of stay in Kolkata for the purpose of fixing the longest stayee list. Many executives had worked outside the jurisdiction of Calcutta Telephones yet the stays have been considered under Calcutta Telephones, Such reckoning will definitely inflict injustice to the concerned executives. GM replied to be aware of the issue and informed that clarification has been sought from Corporate Office, Association opined that such clarification normally takes a long time to come and requested to speak to officer concerned at Corporate Office.

In matter of forwarding prayers for transfer of those who joined from other circles, GM responded to have taken up the exercise and would soon take decision in consultation with CGM. Association, emphasized on time factor and reminded that- if the prayers are not forwarded by first week of Sept 2015 then there remains a likelihood of not getting considered for the review period between Oct – Dec 2015. GM nodded to the contention.
