Meeting with GM ( HR& Admin) , Circle Office on Matters / Concerns regarding HR Front of BSNL Recruit executives

An elaborate and fruitful meeting was held with BSNL Kerala Circle GM(HR/Admin) Sri. Robin Poddar and AIGETOA Kerala on 17-03-2018. The meeting was attended by Our Circle President Sri.Gireesh T, Circle Secretary Sri. Saheer S & team. We took the Matters/Concerns regarding HR Front of BSNL Recruit executives in Kerala.
We submitted the genuine grounds of executives whose requests are pending for favorable consideration. We also requested to consider the BA change for DRJTO-17 trainees & posting to be done with due consideration as many are having language and familiarization issues. GM (HR/Admin) responded with very much positive sign towards the matters and informed that the transfers will be done for cases on merit. He also told us to take up the matter regarding hardships faced by executives in particular for consideration.

We made the reference of Time bound date change of DR executives by some SSAs without any rationale. While most of the SSAs have corrected the same, some are yet to respond. We doubt that the admin/establishment wing of such BAs have made a deliberate attempt to change the TBP eligible date of DR executives without any justification. In addition we requested that the TBP due for DR JTO-2007 batch, who are eligible for E3 from January-2018 onwards, DPC process should be completed at the earliest. Both the cases were taken into accord and GM assured that these things will be cleared accordingly.

Further we took up the matter of issuance of SDE L/A without any valid JTO gradation list and without any proper justification, which is done for appeasement some section. In the LA guidelines issued by BSNL on 2013 it was clearly mentioned that LA should be made from those people whose seniority is derived from an all india seniority list. It is worth mentioning here that there is no valid All India seniority list in the cader of JTOs published by BSNL due to non-inclusion of DR JTOs in 1:1 ratio, as per DoPT guidelines and entire matter is under sub-judice. Vested interest groups playing with the promotional chances of direct recruit executives was detailed with administration. This fact should be known by each direct recruit in BSNL.

We requested for the kind attention of GM(HR/Admin) towards NoC issuance for new DR -2017 executives which was already made vide our submission dated 13/03/2018. It is once again requested that necessary clarification be issued in line with guidelines. Administration discussed the matter in depth and we expect a direction favorable for executives soon.

We also requested for early EPF affidavit submission with regard to our meeting dated 08/03/2018, to submit supportive affidavit for full pension for BR executives. It may be noted that, the full pension for BSNL recruits including for non executives are fought under the leadership of AIGETOA members, legally at Hon HC , Kerala. We requested that necessary directions may be given to legal cell, Circle office to file the affidavit in support to BRs at Hon court immediately in accordance with corporate office instructions.

The meeting lasted around two hours and we are able to submit our views and suggestions/requests with administration. We thanked GM for the positive responses and assured the entire support of AIGETOA for viability of BSNL. We are sure that the efforts and pain by AIGETOA will surely bring favorable results for BSNL recruits in BSNL.

BSNL recruited employees are deprived with Payscales, Super annuation/pensionary benefits, due seniority & promotions violating the guidelines envisaged and, AIGETOA is the only association works to attain the justified due for BSNL recruits. It is for sure that satisfied employees are the strength of the company and HR is the most valuable internal asset of the organization. The qualified and energetic lot needs more encouragement, so that the results will be highly impressive which is need of the hour.

Our Circle team took up the matter with regard to NoC issuance for new DR-2017 executives who aspire to apply for other exams. There are specific guidelines & legal direction in the matter of issuance of NoC & transfer of bond in respect of employees of Public Enterprises.
