Group Term Insurance (GTI):

The demand of SNEA immediately after MV for Group Term Insurance is getting implemented. As reported earlier, a POP UP is developed by ERP team. It will be available as and when ERP portal is opened. This scheme is initially proposed for the BSNL directly recruited Executives who are not covered by Govt pension and now extended for all. This will be more beneficial for those below 50 years.

All our comrades are requested to exercise their option before 20.12.2018.

GTI details


CHQ News:

GS, President and AGS Com Sanjeev Kumar Sharma met GM(Pers) and held discussions regarding JTO to SDE promotions for the vacancies and SDE to DE promotion for the missing cases and unassessed cases. In the AIC also we requested in this regard and GM(P) responded positively at Ludhiana. Discussions held on various options to give promotions for maximum vacancies. For bringing parity, JTOs of 2012 also to be promoted, we demanded. Now JTOs from 1999 rect onwards are waiting for promotion. Above all thousands of young JTOs are waiting for the promotion and losing the precious service, we pointed out.

Meanwhile BSNL sought the legal opinion from Addtl Solicitor General (ASG) on own merit in promotions after the Hon SC judgment dated 26.09.2018.

Status of court cases:

JTO to SDE contempt case – The case came up for hearing on 03.12.2018. BSNL sought exemption from personal appearance which court allowed upto 18.12.18. CAT directed BSNL to file reply by 18.12.2018 and the case posted to 18.12.2018.

JTO to SDE promotion --- Review petition in the Hon High Court, Kerala: The review petition is expected this week end.

AO to CAO promotion: In the case against the recent AO to CAO promotion demanding catch up rule, Hon Chandigarh CAT ordered STATUS QUO putting fresh hurdles in promotions.



Talks between the AUAB and the Hon MoSC held today. The details are:

1) On 4G spectrum, Cabinet approval will be taken at the earliest. The Cabinet memo is already circulated and Addtl Secretary, DoT is asked to interact with other Ministries to clarify their doubts. Once reply received from other Ministries, it will be placed before the Cabinet, in the next meeting itself.

2) It is accepted to delink the pension revision from pay revision and affordability clause and process separately.

3) On Pension Contribution, a positive recommendation is being sent to Dept of Expenditure.

4) On 3rd PRC for the employees, some more issues are to be sorted out between DoT and BSNL. In the present form, Union Cabinet may not approve it, Minister and Secretary are doubtful.

The progress of the issues will be reviewed every fortnight and a mechanism will be evolved in DoT for regular discussion with AUAB. After making a thorough review of the situation, AUAB meeting unanimously decided to defer the strike till further intimation.

In today’s meeting with Hon MoSC, SNEA raised the issue of approval of E2 and E3 pay scales and other AUAB leaders supported it. In a very positive response, Hon Minister directed the officers to process it in DoT at the earliest as it can be settled in DoT. Officers from DoT assured to discuss it separately for early settlement.

Comrades, this is a golden opportunity we got it, to discuss the standard pay scales issue, with the support of AUAB.

Last week, on another important issue, 3% hike in SAB agreed by CMD/BSNL in the discussion with AUAB.

These two are very important breakthrough in addition to the other demands.

RTI reply on SAB contribution: EPF-12%, Gratuity-4.8%, PRMB-3.3%, Pension-5%.

2. During 2017-18, BSNL estimated 4.8% growth, but it has actually reduced by 14.8%.

3. Expenditure on employees remuneration is continuously growing comparing to its revenue. It is 65.7% of revenue from operations during 2017-18. Now it has become 89% during Q1 of FY 2018-19.

4. 4303 Cr is the additional expenditure per annum for 3rd PRC with 15% fitment (pension contribution calculated on maximum of the pay scale) and it may cross the revenue from operations(2760 Cr is the additional expenditure if the pension contribution is on actual basic pay).

5. For 4G rollout, loan has to be taken and the additional revenue expected after that will be required for repayment of loan.

6. The excess payment on pension contribution is shown as Rs 2000. Govt not agreed to the BSNL proposal for pension contribution on actual basic pay.

7. BSNL proposes additional revenue from FTTH etc.
