Queries with regard to proposed MT Internal Recruitment received from members & BRs :

Queries with regard to proposed MT Internal Recruitment are being received from various members as well as BSNL recruits belonging to other associations. AIGETOA is very clear in its agenda that MT RR in its current form is envisaged to give birth to the greatest danger, which BSNL Recruited Executives can face in their Career and Pay prospects in the form of this MT Recruitment.

By the way of present MT Recruitment proposal, which is made as a lateral recruitment above JTO/JAO, executives have to face the following implications:

1. The career prospects of BSNL Recruits - will be stalled at SDE/DE level except for those meager MTs who can get recruited and that too only if internal MT is allowed. If current MT RRs prevail, with Internal exam, Year wise External Recruitment exam will also have to be held unless RRs are scrapped. So if any body justifies that only internal exam is being held and that will help career prospects, they are simply being befooled by their guides, nothing else. Later on Internal exam will be marred with litigations that will give a free hand to management for conducting external exams and kill the careers of BSNL recruits who are to go miles and miles in BSNL.

2. Every body should understand that MT is recruitment process and not a promotional mechanism as being projected by some over intelligent groups. This process will give birth to a new cadre, which ultimately will result into the Old DoT Era where none of the executives were able to reach to the STS level till retirement. So ultimately, most of the BSNL recruits will be forced to retire as SDE/DE. Nothing beyond that.

3. Of all the executives who are having more than five years of service left in BSNL, only BSNL recruits and few absorbed executives of later batches (Mostly 94-95 batch onwards) will be sufferers as all others have reached to AGM levels and are very safely placed.

4. MT Recruitment was envisaged to fill up 50 percent posts at STS level, which was later on changed to 25 percent. Remember, this 50 % Quota in STS is for the meritorious executives who are sufficiently qualified to reach the higher strata of their careers. AIGETOA has categorically demanded that MT RR should be scrapped and an Internal Fast Track promotional methodology should be implemented to fill up these vacancies. If MT Recruitment is held, chances for the implementation of this fast track methodology will end up for ever.

5. The long pending plea for JTO with E2 Scale and SDE with E3 scale will also get a set back as MT recruitment is proposed in E3 scale. So our Pay Scale case will also be affected with BSNL taking plea that they don't have any pay bands left to accommodate E2 and E3 for JTOs/JAOS and SDE/AO equivalent.

AIGETOA has always been a front-runner to ensure that Justified promotions are given to executives and recruitments intended to kill the careers of thousands and thousands of executives are made away with. AIGETOA is trying its level best to stop this recruitment and will follow all steps to nullify this recruitment process. Already external exams have been put on to hold due to efforts by this association and we are very sure that we will be able to withhold the internal exams also as they are not acceptable to us in its current form. Our Team is working on a war-footing basis to ensure an early end to this menace. The progress so far is quite encouraging. We are ready with our organizational action plan also which will be intimated within next few days.

In the meanwhile, there is apprehension amongst the executives, whether to apply for the exam or not, we suggest them to take their own call based on their personal choice. As far as stand of AIGETOA is concerned, we once again reiterate that we are dead against this MT recruitment notification and we will go to any extent to scrap this by any means.

Further details with respect to the proposed action plan shall be intimated very soon.
