Com Dilip Saha, CS, Com Nirmal Sarkar President, Com Misson Dey Zonal Secretary, Com Tapan Sarkar Org Secretary and Com Pulak Dasgupta   met GM NWO-I and DGMNWO/BKP at BKP to discuss and resolve some critical issues affecting Area BKP badly. In view of large scale retirement and pending transfer orders of executives who had joined last two years back, it has become necessary to deploy extra executives and reorient a part of the divisions to deliver better service. The matter warrants attention of HQ too to ensure posting of executives.. Association further pointed to some posts that lost its relevance in today’s scenario and how the situation calls for effective deployment of staff to reduce burden on those who are working with multiple additional charges and simultaneously  ensure , at least  for, near uniformity  in terms of workload.  Case on severe medical ground may be dealt sympathetically. GM acknowledged for reviewing the issue shortly and coming out with some judicious solution

The critical situation arising out of non updation of bills in ERP by Accounts has led non payment to vendors. Even though, it is reportedly learnt that additional password has been provided to AO/BKP, yet there is no updation of bills from vendors for payment. There is a growing compilation of pending bills awaiting payment and if the remains unresolved, it will lead catastrophic situation leading in works coming to grinding halt. GM informed to be aware of the issue and assured to take necessary action in a short time to end such unwarranted stalemate.

The engine alternators and split ACs often remains out of order resulting in shut down of exchanges /DSLAMs. SDEs/DEs of respective exchanges , inspite of making official communications to officers concerned of Electrical wing, there is practically no response to restore the faulty machines. Executives of Area, working in fields face trying times to get over the situation. Association demanded for immediate intervention at the level of CE for necessary action. GM accepted to be aware of the issue and assured to take up the issue with CE/Electrical. However, he felt that under exigency, executives should take necessary action with the approval of the competent authority to restore the faults. He is of the opinion that sometimes some minor faults could get repaired by expending  a small amount of money, particularly when there is risk of exchange getting shut down. Association  agreed to  and informed that such steps are taken by executives for ACs but it is not feasible to repair engine alternator. The same is with Civil Wing. DGM asked for letter addressed to both the wings to take up the issue alongwith GM.

It is reported that customers of Halisahar, etc are unable to pay their outstanding amount for not getting their bills in time. On the contrary, it is reported that for non payment , the lines are getting disconnected.  Since the case is of serious nature and pertain to TR Wing, GM assured to look into the matter.

12/02/16 CWC pays homage to Lt Com Sesagiri Rao
23-Feb-2016

CWC meeting at Kolkata on 08th and 09th February, 2016.

Homage to the great leader Late Com W. Seshagiri Rao:

CWC paid rich tributes to the veteran leader Com W. Seshagiri Rao who led the Association as CHQ President and General Secretary upto 2006. By his sad demise, the trade union movement lost a great stalwart, great visionary, the most dedicated, committed and selfless leader. His contribution in 1640 pay scale struggle, 1990 joint struggle for lateral advancement, interaction with V CPC for gazetted status to JTO cadre and upgradation of pay scales of JTOs to Rs 6500-10500, strong opposition against Corporatization, organizational and legal action against absorption in BSNL for an adhoc payment of Rs 2000 without declaring the terms and conditions for absorption, finalization of pay scales, promotion policy and fitment formula for absorption in BSNL, absorption of JTO cadre as an Executive in BSNL, framing of EPP, abolition of qualifying exam, thousands and thousands of promotion from JTO to SDE etc are some of the milestones.  

His another dream was the unity among the Executives. Formation of SNEA in 2003 at Kanyakumari conference merging TEOA and BSNLEA was a step in that direction. In that AIC, he simply handed over the mantle to Com G. L. Jogi, another great leader. He brought up this organization and he will live in the hearts of thousands and thousands of the Executives forever and ever, CWC observed.

Paying rich tributes to Com W. Seshgiri Rao, CWC decided to work for his dream – Upliftment of the cadres and Unity among the Executives.

In the memory of Late Com W. Seshagiri Rao, CWC unanimously resolved to rename our SNEA Bhavan at New Delhi as Seshagiri Rao Bhavan.

CWC Kolkata hosted at Rabindratirtha, New Town, Kolkata witnessed an august gathering of Circle Secretaries, CWC members and other invitees. The event started with hoisting of flag on 08/02/2016 amid chanting of slogans followed with lighting of lamps signifying inauguration of the grand session. The house expressed profound grief and paid deep homage to late Com Sesagiri Rao on his untimely demise orphaning the association to irreparable depth. A statesman, a visionary and a silent warrior who stood through thick and thin by the association and whose unstinting labour saw the associations achieve heights unprecedented. We cannot forget but reminisce the days when he applied his visionary acumen to confer GrB status on the cadre of JTOs and it helped to clinch the executives payscales in the aftermath of formation of BSNL. The scale upgradation to Rs 6500/ in 1996 CPC to the cadre of JTO was pursued with strong zeal in his unique and silent style of working, laying the foundation of the cadre for the years to come. Amongst myriad achievements, the legal and organisational battle to spell out terms and conditions before absorption in BSNL remain a hall mark to this day. We would have been in dire strait had not the payscales, fixation modality and career progression got spelt out in time, shrugging aside the temptation of adhoc payment. The august gathering saluted the great leader and resolves to carry the glowing spirit from the eternal flame he left behind for us.

Speakers narrated anecdotes sharing moments of close association with this great personality and events that left indelible marks in their life.

The house then sat seriously deliberating on critical issues that required resolves in no uncertain terms.

Calcutta Telephones Circle deliberated on issues critical in accordance to the decision adopted in CEC meet.

The following are the decisions adopted in CWC meet for further course of action. 

The comrades of SNEA/CTC did a commendable job in organising the CWC meet in a befitting manner. A special mention to the members of the sub committee, volunteers, activists and those of NE Zone who developed a laudable coordination and laboured hard to see the event meet success. We are further glad to inform the North East Zone had borne substantial responsibility to gift mementos to the participants and others as a token of love and remembrance for the grand event.

Com Dilip Saha CS, Com Nirmal Sarkar, Circle President and Com Sankar Sanyal Jt Secretary/East met Shri S.K. Samanta GM/HR & Admin on 04/02/16 in his chamber.

Association pointed to anomaly in vacancy under departmental quota for the cadre of JTO. More than 350 TTAs are eligible to take the exam i.e LICE as notified by Corporate Office. More than 490 direct  recruitment had taken place since 2001. Prima facie, an equal number of vacancy should get assigned for departmental recruitee too, since then. However, it is learnt that only 354 vacancies have been set aside for LICE.

GM/HR said to be aware of the matter and that the officers of the section are working on it to remove  anomaly, if any. However, association demanded for immediate settlement of vacancy followed with notification for the said exam.

Associated drew attention for holding of DPC in the cadre of PS. Last time, due to a change in interpretation for calculation of vacancy, a few seniors got left out. Association requested to initiate the process of DPC without further delay. GM informed to have conveyed the section concerned to initiate the process.

Rule 8 case- About 12  numbers of JTOs are awaiting Rule-8 transfers inspite of completing five years of service. It was made to understand that due to absence of substitutes the administration is unable to consider the cases. CS drew attention on JTO offtg who are soon to join on regular basis. This will be followed with regular JTOs joining through LICE. Keeping both the induction in consideration, Rule 8 cases be considered for release without further delay.                  

 GM agreed to the proposal but reminded that no man power change is to occur on such promotion. Association reiterated that rules envisage for transfers in same cadre. The aspect of overall deficiency should get considered by the administration for further recruitment-be it in the cadre of TTAs or JTOs etc.

Association once again requested to forward the cases of some executives who requested for change of modification in their transfer order, mostly to their home circles. This beside, the executives who are to complete two years of service have applied for transfer.

portrait II

With untold grief we mourn the sad, sudden and untimely demise of our veteran leader Com W. Seshagiri Rao due to cardiac arrest at around 01.00 am.

The hero of many historic battles to win the pride and prestige of the Executive community, his stellar role in building up the SNEA will remain with us forever. The likes of him have seldom walked the earth. Com W Seshagiri Rao cannot die, but will live on and on. We pray to the almighty to receive him into the ranks of the best and the blessed. Our deepest condolence to his respected wife, children, grand children and family members. May God sustain them to overcome the irreparable grief and loss.

A brief  CEC meeting alongwith members of the sub committees and Zonal Presidents was held on 29/01/16 at Telephone Bhavan to discuss and deliberate on issues raised by CHQ for conclusive decision at CWC/Kolkata. Besides, assessment on preparation for hosting the CWC meet was discussed extensively.

The critical issues discussed elaborately are

1) increase revenue and accelerate the growth to make BSNL profitable. 

2) Promotion deadlock

3) pay fixation and pay protection on officiating promotion

4) restoration of Trade Union facility

5) quota and diary updates

The house unflinchingly committed towards increase in revenue and growth of BSNL and felt the call of ‘SWAS’ given by BSNL should be implemented at its best. However, mere adhering to SWAS isnot enough unless adequate priority is given to expand and stabilise the network which definitely ensures the retention of customers.

The promotion deadlock is severely affecting the cadres through its rank and file and further delay would have a telling effect on the morale of thousands of executives. Immediate thrust is warranted to implement the CPSU Hierarchy.

Outright refusal to grant pay protection on officiating based on irrational observation is absolutely unacceptable.         Thousands of executives had performed duties taking higher responsibilities and in higher payscales. There remains no room for further arguments on not to grant pay protection. The initial clarification had removed the ambiguity but then the clarification issued in 2009 ran contradictory , depriving thousands of executives of their due right. 

Since membership verification could not come to a conclusive stage, the once again demanded to restore all the TU rights and facilities with immediate effect.

In matter of JTO offtg, the house is not at all convinced with such inordinate delay in court of law and wants to strongly convey that utmost priority , preferably with personal bestowal of attention of GS is called for.

In matter of preparation for ensuing CWC on 08/01/16 and 09/02/16 at Rabindratirtha, New Town, Kolkata, the sub comittees briefed on the latest position, CS conveyed that no stone should be left unturned to make the event a success. 

In little alteration and addition in sub committees, Com Samir Ganguly(9432001275) has been included in Accomodation Committee , Com Shyamal Chowdhury (9433400463) in Food Committee & Com Amar Ray(8902000238) in transport commitee.
