Update on LDCE -2015 candidates SDE early posting case at Hon CAT Ernakulam

It is learnt that the SDE early promotion order case filed by LDCE -2015 cleared applicants came for hearing on 03-01-2018 at Hon CAT Ernakulam. The request for early SDE promotion orders were requested by AIGETOA many times with Management with a plea to execute pending promotions orders in existing RRs.


It was also learnt that one association have filed against the LDCE passed applicants plea and indirectly justifying management stand for delay on SDE promotion with whatever be the reasons projected. The submission from neither the management, nor the new parties shown any consideration to the genuine right / benefit loss to the SDE promotion awaiting executives for many years.


CPSU draft proposal was approved by Management committee and awaits BSNL board approval. Till now there is no concrete sign shown about the issue of pending LDCE / DPC Promotion to SDE or finalisation of seniority in JTO Cader. Moreover the backdated Year of Rect ( JTO ) is kept as such same in the new CPSU proposal to continue the woes faced by BSNL DR JTOs in getting  1:1 seniority. The seniority clause and other lacunae which we had pointed earlier also yet to be consideredr by management.

The case is posted to 09-01-2018

At the very first outset, on behalf of AIGETOA Kerala We whole heartedly conveyed our New Year Wishes to CGMT & entire BSNL employees and their family. We all moved to 2018 with lot of positive hopes with regard to BSNL its revenue & operations and employee concerns which need to be build in a strong base of motivation & unity.

We had detailed discussions over

Pending Time Bound (E3-E4) & First TBP in 4 years CGMT agreed to release the pending orders at the earliest and instructions given to HR section accordingly. Some SSAs still pending for completing formalities which will be followed up from Circle office and orders will be issued. The first TBP in Four years report also will be submitted to corporate office soon. The indifferent attitude towards BSNL recruits were detailed and the same is conveyed in true spirit. Administration agreed to take precautionary measures in future accordingly.

We requested CGMT to kindly consider the posting/ allotment of new DRJTOs -2017, be done with preference BA requests as many JTO vacancies are available in all SSAs across Kerala. In the new JTO batches many outside state executives are allotted in Kerala including lady executives and they may be given posting places with a transparent procedure. Administration informed that the posting will be done without much discomfort to new joinees.

EPF full pension of BSNL recruits was detailed along with Hon Court directions. CGMT informed necessary followup will be initiated from HR section as and when EPFO agrees to take the options. Option from SSAs, date also will be extended to help the executives who missed for submission.

In addition to the above , the Operational issues also discussed like Blackout day decision, LL free calling time change etc. CGMT expressed the difficulty in over coming Corporate office instructions. The blackout day decision cant changed for a single state (within a zone) and the matter will be taken up accordingly. The decision on LL free call timing change also made in the same line from corporate office without consideration on customer retention. The FTTH penetration and OLT purchase also discussed for meeting the operational requirement

We suggested on charging for solutions rather than for bandwidth alone for enterprise internet requirement citing various examples.
We have to go for total EB soultions within the framework of BSNL and we agreed to give briefing on technical details on request.

We are hopeful to get a positive concern on matters which require immediate attention related with executives in BSNL with favourable results.
