Tactics for blockade of career progression/promotions of BSNL recruits :

To the total dismay of BSNL Recruit JTOs, all on a sudden, some sections invented that some clarity lag on seniority fixation or rather creating purposeful ambiguity to delay the entire process. The move was unfortunate at the same time irrational and against thousands of BSNL recruits ( DR JTOs and LICE JTOs ) who aspire to get their claim on SCF promotions. Hon Court directed on the clarity of interpolation of excess Promotees who occupied JTO vacancies in excess of PR Quota w.r.t direct recruit JTOs, which in turn mutually beneficial to DR JTOs and BR LICE JTOs in the equal line.

We request to those who create confusions, to have a thorough reading and interpretation of judgement, failing which we can help them out. The blockade of career progression / promotions of BSNL recruits which have been happening for years should not go any forward. We can understand the desperation, as JTO to SDE DPCs & List 8 DPCs are on the go where majority (more than 90%) clearance would be BSNL recruits.

The same tactics was used for the pay parity issue taken for post 2007/08 batches. Despite knowing the fact after JTO RR-14 (which they themselves agreed to E1 scale) joinees will be eligible for E2 scale to the maximum , the management´┐Żs move for anomaly fixation was derailed by quoting the whole lot and in turn nothing happened till now. AIGETOA is into legal fight for pay anomaly correction & standard pay scales from that time. We are very much sure, with active and pragmatic support from all, we will be able to clinch this issue also.

The same tactics were, when BRs were to get SAB from at least w.e.f 1-1-2007, quoting financial implications and it took much time to recoup the starting point for BSNL recruits towards pending Superannuation benefits. AIGETOA is into legal fight for pending SAB & Medical benefits for BSNL recruits from that time.

Now again touching the career aspirations of BSNL recruits, in a time - where all the seniors enjoyed the promotions, unnecessary confusion is totally unwarranted . AIGETOA is not against any promotions at the same time we will fight it out to the maximum extent against any move to derail the career progression of BSNL recruits. ENOUGH is ENOUGH and hope that the point is clear. The act which squarely affect industrial harmony may not be resorted into by any manner. We once again hope that the targeted intentions will be changed to pragmatic way and good sense will prevail.
