GS Notice to CMD/BSNL intimating Trade Union programms

DoT reference to DPE on replacement of E1A and E2A scale with E2 and E3 scales.


It explains the damages made by the stand taken by one Association to the cadre and the advantage taken out of that by DoT, quoting their stand. DoT cleverly utilized their demand to scuttle the genuine demand for E2 and E3 scales in the name of cascading effect.

It also exposes the allegation made by another Association against SNEA that BSNL offered E2 pay scales for the JTO/JAOs recruited by BSNL at the time of absorption in BSNL but SNEA compromised for E1A scale.

SNEA consistently telling our beloved comrades that at the time of absorption BSNL offered E1 and E2 pay scales for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO equivalent cadres and SNEA demanded E2 and E3 scales respectively. As a result of  very strong agitations in 2002 which paralysed the country, BSNL agreed for E1A and E2A scales.

Atleast now the truth has come out from the mouth of DoT itself.

Letter           Annexure


DPE reply to DoT dated 29.08.2018 on replacement of E1A and E2A scales.

DPE reply to DoT

The stay on promotion from AO to CAO promotion regarding catch up rule vacated today. BSNL CO initiated DPC process to issue the promotion orders on war footing.

CHQ News:

Implementation of Hon Ernakulam High Court order on pay fixation under FR22(1)(a)(1) without the restriction of FR 35 for the officiating JTOs.  

The SLP filed by BSNL against the Hon Ernakulam High Court order on pay fixation under FR22(1)(a)(1) without the restriction of FR 35 for the officiating JTOs was dismissed recently.

GS and AGS met GM(Estt) and held discussion regarding the implementation of High Court order by generalizing it. Before filing the SLP in the Hon Supreme Court, we requested management to implement the High Court order but management gone ahead with the SLP. GM(Estt) informed that a proposal to implement the Hon Ernakulam High Court order is moved by the Estt section for the approval of Competent authority.

Later on we met CGM(Legal) in this regard and requested to clear the proposal of Estt section.

SNEA filed the case at PCAT New Delhi, which allowed pay fixation under FR22(1)(a)(1) without the restriction of FR 35 for the SNEA members subject to the final outcome of the Ernakulam High Court order.

GS letter to DIR(HR)

GS, President and AGS met Shri Anupmam Shrivatava, CMD, BSNL on 28.08.2018 and held discussion on:

a) Notification of Uniform Time Bound Functional Promotion Policy w.e.f 01.07.2018 as assured by CMD and DIR repeatedly. Inspite of repeated assurances by CMD and DIR (HR) that the new promotion policy will be notified w.e.f 01.07.2018, the notification is not yet issued. Thousands of Executives, numbering about 18,500 are waiting for the promotion. The strong resentment among the Executives on the delay tactics of the management conveyed to CMD. CMD reassured that it will be notified w.e.f 01.07.2018 as assured by the management.

Further CMD informed that as and when the file reaches him from DIR(HR), he will approve the notification. The proposal is still with DIR(HR). It is come to know that the entire delay is from DIR(HR) side who had taken all the efforts to get the proposal approved by the BSNL Board.

CMD assured to speak to DIR(HR) and expedite the notification. We informed CMD that we cannot wait indefinitely as several assurances on notification was given by CMD and DIR(HR).

b) DPE reply on the querry from DoT on E2 and E3 scales:

We requested the intervention of CMD and to speak to Secretary or Addl Secretary, DPE in this regard. CMD assured that he will speak to Addl Sec in a day or two to ensure that DPE is sending a positive reply to DoT. GM(Estt) is already instructed to meet the DPE officials, CMD informed.


Developments in DPE on E2 and E3 pay scales:

GM(Estt) and DGM(Estt) met Shri Agrim Kaushal, Advisor(Jt Sec)/DPE on 28.08.2018 and explained the pay scale issue to them. During absorption, DoT approved E1A, E2A, E3, ---E6 pay scales for the Executives, those recruited by BSNL as well as absorbed from DoT. However, on implementation of 2nd PRC, DoT issued the PO on 28.03.2017, lowering the pay scales from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2, contrary to the recommendation of BSNL. DoT took a stand that E1 and E2 are the pay scales applicable for the Executives recruited/promoted by BSNL after its formation. E1A and E2A are applicable only applicable for those absorbed from DoT.

GM(Estt) informed GS that he explained to DPE that only E1A and E2A scales are implemented in BSNL and there is no E1 or E2 pay scales. After 2nd PRC, BSNL recommended E2 and E3 pay scales replacing E1A and E2A. The affordability clause is to be considered as per the DPE guidelines based on the PBT for the year 2007-08. By the DoT order, two pay scales are applicable for one cadre, E1A and E1 scales which is not permissible.

Earlier SNEA met CMD and DIR(HR) and requested to a senior officer to DPE to explain and pursue the matter. On their instruction, GM(Estt) met the concerned officers in DPE.
