Cranky Crocodile Tears- Time for Introspection- Dear Mighty Association

The mightiest association has been repeatedly insisting on their website that AIGETOA activists are the reasons for delay in promotions. They are writing that court case in Ernakulum is the main reason for non happening of the promotions. They are insisting that had this court case not been there, BSNL would have executed the promotions way back. They are even hinting that those filing court cases should be punished. We would like to know from them, what should be the punishment for those who marred the promotions for BSNL recruits for years. Who put the career progression of BSNL recruits into back burners and jeopardized the careers of thousands & thousands of BSNL recruits. What should be the punishment for delaying the CPSU hierarchy for a decade and now advocating for the same when it has lost its relevance. We would also like to ask them what should be the punishment for withholding LDCE promotions for years. It was the efforts of AIGETOA which could break this bottleneck and only thereafter around 12000 executives were promoted within a month.

The deafening cries on their website say the true story. Time and again they have been taking the name of AIGETOA and its members and stating that promotions have been stopped because of the court cases. But in the process they have forgotten that it was them (the so called mightiest) who misguided management to do the opposite of the court direction and face the contempt. In their hurry to execute the promotions for some and deny the chances to BSNL recruits, they forced management to partially execute the court order. If they felt that the Ernakulum Judgment is coming on the way of promotions, why they adopted the shortcut, why they did not asked management to appeal in higher court, why they did not asked management to ask for clarification petition in High Court at that time. With the partial execution of the order, they closed all doors for possible relief from higher courts.

Now they are giving sermons for pragmatism. While forgetting that pragmatism should have been exercised on 14th June 2018 when instead of giving partial promotions, they should have gone for filling up all the available vacancies. Now they are behaving like I have eaten your pie and now you distribute the leftovers amongst all. When Management was planning to execute the list 8, they raised the demand for parity for inclusion of list9 and now they accepted that management should go for partial execution of the lists for Vacancy year 2004-05 as in vacancy year 2005-06, BSNL recruits will be there. This is their idea of pragmatism. If they call this pragmatism, we can never be pragmatic.

They take pride in denouncing those who fight for their rights. We cannot denounce those who fight for their rights. Yes, it's a truth that contempt petition is a big headache and nobody will ever want such situation to occur. But height is that those who created this situation are now preaching sermons and showing sympathy. Management also, instead of realizing the fact that real culprits for this contempt to happen are those who ignored the timely advices from AIGETOA, those who ignored the contempt notices from advocates, those who kept their higher ups in dark. Action should be taken against them.

It appears that some corners which are hell bent on stopping the career progression of BSNL recruits are working overnight to derail the prospects of promotions. They instead of forcing the management to fill up the complete vacancies are guiding them opposite and requesting the management to put the whole promotion aspects in jeopardy forever. They have been continuously and consistently knocking all the doors of management to defame AIGETOA, instead of executing promotions, they are busy in collecting information about the office bearers of AIGETOA with whom GS interacts and for how long.

To some extent they have succeeded in defaming AIGETOA in front of management. Some actions from HR section suggest this. However, we are not perturbed because of this. Our association's foundations stone is ethics and we cannot compromise on that.

With these contrary actions of the so called mightiest association, reversal of those who have been promoted cannot be ruled out. We hope while boasting and justifying the stand, court does not direct for something adverse for those who have already been given promotions in contravention of the court orders. Till date Pragmatic approach has been followed by the deprived lot but when it takes a U Turn, nobody knows what will happen. We sincerely hope that AIGETOA will not be blamed for anything adverse for those who have already been promoted.

We also take this opportunity to congratulate all those BSNL Recruits who have been watering the gardens of these mightiest associations, as their contribution is very well utilized by their leadership. They have succeeded in confusing management in JTO to SDE promotion and management is now thinking to go for clarification petition which is just intended for delay, nothing else. We congratulate these BRs for getting the success in ensuring that list 8 does not happen, list 9 is not notified. After all, your contribution plays a major part in strengthening their hands. We also congratulate those BR corners, who instead of making BR platform strong have opted for the contrary.

Saying that, we once again reiterate our firm resolve to ensure that burning issues of BSNL recruits gets resolved. Till it does not happen, neither we will rest nor will we allow others to take rest.

CO asking data pertaining to JTOs promoted between 1995 to 2000 :

It was repeatedly being emphasised that Ernakullam Judgement only talks about JTOs recruited after 2000 and Corporate office also issued JTOs promotion stating that list before year 2000 was undisputed. Now, corporate office has asked for data pertaining to JTOs promoted between 1995 to 2000. Click here for the letter

This exercise should have been done earlier by BSNL CO before issuing the promotion orders. Now when Hon'ble court has established the contempt, BSNL CO is working in reactive mode. All timely advices given by AIGETOA has been ignored and they went ahead with the promotions of Part list.

We have suggested to fill up all the vacancies and also that all eligible JTOs should be promoted and for that if some vacancies are needed, they should be upgraded. Let's see if good sense prevails in all corners...

Friends, last few days, we have been consistently meeting management and pushing forward the promotion issue. Discussions have been held at the level of Director HR, Sr GM establishment, GM Pers, OSD and Joint GM Pers. We have been able to impress upon them that promotions will have to be executed for BSNL recruited executives also and sooner it comes better it is. We have emphasised upon the need for filling up all posts of SDEs till current date, we have requested management to consider list8 in totality. We have requested management to finalise the list 9 as per provisions of SDE RRs in the Rota Quota ratio of 2:1 between SCF and LDCE. Our efforts have borne fruits. HR group has held many meetings in last few days to sort out the issues related with JTO to SDE promotions, execution of list 8 and feasibility of further lists. We are very sure that our efforts will succeed. We request members to have faith and patience. Justice may have been delayed but it will definitely come good for us.

Kerala JTO Gradation list particulars till YOR -2008

The JTO Gradation list particulars of JTOs till YOR-2008 is sent from Circle office ( after updation of corrections received)  to Corporate office. The same was achieved through the continued followup of AIGETOA Kerala team. The special efforts by our ACS Sri. Vipal, ACS Sri. Prasadraj,  TVM ADS Sri. Sathyajose, Abin JTO etc are really appreciated. 

Again this is happened to be another example for BSNL Recruits,  to realise who is working for US. Some credit mongering corners who were actually against this DPC promotions were silent till 25/7/18  and when the list was prepared,  they are forced to update for selfish reasons and some gimmick followance.  We hope that once again the thinking BRs will not fall to prey for membership mongers and make sure that our support will not be further utilised for wrong doing against BRs Career  , Pay and Pension prospects
