North Suburban Zone/SNEA/CTC held its general body meeting on 05/05/2018 at Lalkuthi Telephone Exchange. Members present expressed grievances over acute shortage of staff under different verticals and how seeking transfer has become an impracticable proposition. There is dire need for postings of executives in BRS division. This apart, members were critical on delay by administration of Area/BKP  in settling individual cases, particularly related to accounts. Executives representing NSBTTC provided constructive suggestions in improving the working of the training centre to earn substantial revenue. There is enough opportunity to reach out potential state institutions and corporate bodies to set up training programs.  In matters related to field, members expressed their difficulties in meeting targets in the face of stiff competition. But the overall mood spoke of taking up challenges amid all odds. Com Sankar Sanyal Jt Secretary(E) addressed the house on roll back of tower subsidiary company, E2/E3 IDA payscales, CPSE Hierarchy, pending promotions etc. Com Dilip Saha CS deliberated on the grim situation facing the telecom industry and how BSNL through its hard determination is still in contention. He elaborated on the causes for acute shortage of executives and exhorted to adjust to the worsening situation unless there is any sign of change in policy. It’s time to struggle and also to render service to customers since BSNL is sailing through choppy waters.  But then, there is no room to lose sight on anti BSNL policies being adopted by DOT with respect to formation of tower subsidiary company, denying the benefit of 3rd PRC on the plea of affordability, putting up flimsy objection on CPSE hierarchy, delaying in instituting Term Insurance, particularly for the social security of BSNL recruitees, etc. CS  urged upon all new comers to be more involved in associational activities to save BSNL. 


All Unions and Associations of Calcutta Telephones met at Telephone Bhavan to discuss on ways to hold street corner meetings from 7th of May 2018 to 11th of May 2018 as notified by AUAB for protesting against formation of Tower Subsidiary Company and demanding for its immediate roll back.

The confirmation in respect of exact location shall be conveyed by convenor in time and the meetings will be held at closing hours. All Circle Secretaries alongwith members are to be present at the venue of the meeting. This apart, leaflet will be circulated among common men briefing on the constraints faced by BSNL from rendering efficient service.

Com Dilip Saha CS, Com Soumen Ghosh ACS and Com Sankar Sanyal Jt Secretary (E) met GM/HR & Admin and discussed the followings:—-

Acute shortage in various cadre-Due to superannuation, large number posts in the cadre of DE/SDEs are falling vacant, resulting in severe difficulty in maintaining services. Moreover, it is observed, the promotions in form of lookafter charges are badly vacating the substantive cadre. In view of above, the matter calls for meticulous examination in filling the vacant posts.

GM/HR assured to fill in acute shortage in the cadre of DE, following which he would go for filling in the substantive cadre rendered vacant due to aforesaid promotion without delay.

Rule 8 cases in the cadre of JTO-association reminded on the left out cases pending since last financial year. It was assured, the cases will be taken up without further delay.

GM/HR informed that the process for sanction has been initiated. Requested to wait for some time.

Untenable clarification in respect of treating city of  Jaipur under category A  for the purpose of entitlement to DAJTOs working under DGM/NWO/BKP had undergone their Phase-I training at Jaipur, a city treated under category A for the purpose of entitlement to DA. The executives submitted their claim for reimbursement entitled long back. It is reported, recently the bills got processed but the entitlement to DA has not been considered under category A, unlike in other Areas and inspite of order from Inspection Circle treating Jaipur as category A city. This apart, Bivas Pal Ex SDE(LA), HR No-198309306 had retired 31/08/2017. He was entitled to fixation under EPP for E3-E4 in January of 2017. There is no official communication in this regard as to why Shri Pal was not granted the fixation.

GM/HR requested to provide a brief note on the issues intimated with relevant copies of the documents and assured to look into the matter. 

Non issue of appointment letter to JTOs who were promoted from the cadre of JE  in recent past. In absence of appointment letter, the JTOs are unable to get fixation as entitled under promotion. 

GM/HR informed that the file is under process and soon the order will be issued.

Large number of JTOs are waiting for Phase II training- More than one year has elapsed since their completion of field training, yet there seems to be no serious consideration in ensuring the officials accomplish it within the stipulated period of two years. Or otherwise, there will be complication in fixation/increments. 

GM/HR intimated that the file is being processed. The candidates will be listed in order of their seniority nearing completion of two years of stipulated time period. 

PA/PS case the cancellation order with respect to PAs who either had got transferred or promoted has taken place. Thereafter, there is no progress on this issue.

GM/HR–AGM/Staff is engaged in compiling the documents required for DPC in the cadre of DGM. Its going to be over in a couple of days following which the file for PA shall be put up for final settlement.
