Letter  List


Hon Kerala HC ( Earnakulam) Judgment on JTO(T) to SDE (T)SCF delivered on 5.6.2018.

The main features of the judgement are:

A) JTOs recruited by BSNL as per JTO RR 2001 cannot claim the vacancy or seniority prior to 2000. It is reserved for the DoT officers. The basic contention of AIGETOA to interpolate seniority in the ratio 1:1 prior to the vacancies of 2000 has been rejected. This was the crux of the issue.

B) The promotion and seniority of JTOs recruited for 1995 to 1999 are intact and the eligibility list prepared by BSNL is correct.

C) The seniority of direct rect JTOs and the supernumerary JTOs recruited for the years 2001 to 2007 has to be revised based on date of appointment and date of promotion.

As such there is no hindrance in giving promotion from the final eligibility list prepared and circulated by BSNL from among JTOs recruited from 1995 to 1999. 


Except the method of fixation of seniority of the JTOs recruited from 2001 onwards, all the pleadings of SNEA and BSNL management accepted by the Hon High Court.

CHQ will take all out efforts to issue the promotion orders as quickly as possible. 

Hon ENK Judgement copy


Hon High Court of Kerala pronounced the Judgment today (05.06.2018) in the JTO to SDE Promotion case: The salient features are:

1. JTOs recruited directly by BSNL after 2001 can have no right to claim for the vacancies earmarked for direct rect during the period from 1996-2000 in DoT. No provision of law or any authority which confer them an indefeasible right to claim allotment of rect years as 1996 onwards -----. Certainly from the date of their appointment in BSNL the petitioners are having the right to get their seniority fixed in accordance with JTO RRs 2001 framed by BSNL.

2. JTO seniority list is to be prepared not on the basis of Trg Centre marks, but based on date of promotion in cases of promotees and date of appointment in case of direct rects.

3. Final eligibility list is to be prepared within 6 months.

4. In the meantime BSNL can make provisional promotion against the vacancies equally from among senior most promotes and senior most direct recruites.

Provision 1 and 4 seems to be contradictory. The judgment copy will be available in 1 or 2 days.

CHQ will take all necessary steps immediately to get the judgment stayed by the Hon SC in case it is adverse.

The applicants main prayer was for interpolation of Promotes and direct rects in the ratio 1:1, irrespective of recruitment year. If the prayer was allowed, then 1995 to 1999 rect promotee JTOs will be interpolated with 2001 to 2005 BSNL direct rect JTOs in the ratio 1:1. Similarly 2007 and 2008 BSNL direct rect JTOs will be interpolated with 2014 to 2017 rect promotee JTOs in the ratio 1:1.

Corporate Office has given instruction to update the status of executives in ERP on or before 06-06-2018 since the process for Promotion to different grades of all executives / Streams is in advance stage. All executives are also requested to to go through the list corresponding to their data and get it corrected in the ERP........

On CPSU Hierarchy, the formal discussions have taken place with the recognized Association only, as per the provisions of Recognition Rules. SNEA only have the right for negotiation/discussion with the management on such policy matters. On large number of issues, agreement reached between both sides. But on some issues, management did not fully agree to the demands, citing administrative constraints.

This will be the major breakthrough for all the Executives and a direct result of the membership verification and becoming recognized Association. During verification campaign, it was assured by SNEA that it will try to get promotions within 3 months, ie. by March, 2017. But due to the unavoidable circumstances  it was delayed and this new policy / promotions will be effected from 1st July, 2018.

Due to various reasons Assn could not update the latest developments and this major breakthrough to our activists at various levels for the last two months when proposal was under finalization.

The much awaited JTO to SDE promotion(LDCE Stream) order released. 1987 JTOs promoted as SDEs. In Chennai 46 JTOs promoted as SDEs.
