Encroachment of privacy of executives in the name of monitoring of attendance

AIGETOA Kerala submitted its apprehensions on the move by circle management by the encroachment of Privacy of executives in the name of monitoring of attendance. Capturing the location details of people amounts to infringement of privacy of individual and is against the ‘Right to privacy’ the fundamental right which an integral part of the right to life and liberty. We outrightly condemn and deprecate such injudicious acts of management and relevant points are submitted for consideration with management. We demanded to immediately withdraw the letter and to scrap the online attendance system which has not fetched any tangible results for BSNL Kerala during its operation.

Meeting with UBI Bank about the delay in disbursement of salary after the release of funds from BSNL

An online Meeting on the matter was held under the chairmanship of Smt. Rathirani, Circle IFA, Sri. R Satheesh GM (HR/Admin) and UBI Bank Pattom Chief Manger on 28/8/2021. AIGETOA was represented by Sri. Saheer S, Circle Secretary, and Sri.Dipu Chandran CHQ Organising Secretary.

A detailed discussion happened on the issues and concerns by Management, Associations and Union's with Bank Authorities. AIGETOA has made our clear stand that repetition of such incidents is not acceptable. The issue was not there before few months and since it's happening only in Kerala, and that too only for non-account holders of UBI, it directly points to the lapse from Bank authorities.

After a reply from UBI Manager and Management, it was concluded in the meeting that both UBI and BSNL Kerala Circle Management will pursue to avoid delay in raising authorization limit approval which was pointed as an issue. We hope that the delay in disbursement of salary will not happen in the future after the release of fund authorization from BSNL and suggested to management that in case of any deviation, the account change from M/s UBI needs to be explored.


Transparency in commitment and actions

Aigetoa Kerala succeeded to officially streamline the tenure or difficult stations in the Kerala circle especially to cater to the staff posting/transfer requirements at such places and non-standard adoption of policies while posting to such places.

The issue was taken up in the first agenda meeting and staff redistribution meeting called by CGMT for areas like Wayanad, Idukki and Kasaragod, Uppala SDCAs. Now with the clarification issued for Kasaragod and Uppala SDCAs, the same stands are completed.

first agenda first point

Our Kannur district unit made a special effort through BA management to get this done.

This is the way an association can make transparency and streamline the procedures, which will be equal for executives on a long-term vision. We are thankful to our respected CGMT and Administration for doing corrective measures.

We hope that now the Kannur BA administration will do the needful at the earliest on the merit of such direction.


Apprehension on NGN equipment AMC with M/s UTSTARCOM

AIGETOA Kerala has raised the concern over nonmentioning of review on equipped capacity based on subsequent closures/decommissioning of installed/equipped capacity in the AMC awarded to M/s UTSTARCOM for maintenance of UT NGN equipment which is marked for Seven years after warranty. No provision is seen in the above-mentioned contract for revision of capacity at any intermediate point of time. We requested our respected CGMT to intervene & cross verify the clauses of AMC and ensure a quarter-wise revision of capacity for AMC PO before processing bills.

CHQ news on pay loss issue of executives

AIGETOA has submitted the detailed representation on the pay loss issue of executives recruited in the pre-revised E1A Scale after 01.01.2007 by extending the initial basic as 22820/-. The committee was formed for reviewing the same by the persuasion from AIGETOA. AIGETOA was invited for a detailed discussion with the committee and the inputs from other associations were also taken by the committee. The rules, legal directions, at par principles, and natural justice need to be done on the matter. We have met concerned officials and we are expecting a positive recommendation by the committee to provide justice to one of the most deprived matters of pay loss, which will definitely uphold the morale of the hardworking executives.

Update On EPF Full Pension Case

The Hon’ble SC yesterday heard the arguments of EPFO against the decision of Hon HC Kerala judgment and other connected orders which quashed the EPS(amendment)-2014. Hon HC Kerala earlier set aside the EPFO amendment by judgment in 2018 and declared that all the EPF covered employees shall be entitled to exercise the higher pension option without being restricted to a particular date and allowed the 12-month average salary condition instead of 5 years. In April-2019 Hon SC had dismissed the SLP by EPFO against Hon HC Kerala and later in January-2021 a three bench judge recalled the dismissal order in the review petitions filed by EPFO and posted for hearing- which is happening now along with various connected petitions across the country. The final judgment arose on WPC 13120/2015 from Hon’ble HC, Kerala. AIGETOA Kerala Circle Secretary along with 504 BSNL recruits including executives and non Executives are connected with the order on WPC 13120/2015 against which the arguments are happening now.

Click here for a summary document of various Hon Court proceeds and part of order copy

This being the factual information, it is seen that some informational claims started propagation whereas neither that association nor its member (other than those who joined the EPF case along with AIGETOA Kerala) is not even a party to this legal fight. Let’s not forget that this particular association’s negative followers were very much vocal against reaching to Hon Court when our team decided to seek legal remedies for the EPF full Pension option. Anyway, we are happy to see that they have understood the need for a legal fight on this matter. It is also pertinent to mention that they are masters in credit mongering especially when it comes to the benefits of BSNL Recruits without any actual groundwork. The same type of elements had misled the SAB Pension Vs EPF till AIGETOA opened the reality i.e. both are different. If the Rule-37A Clause 23 as envisaged at the time of incorporation of BSNL then SAB would have effected from the date of joining of BSNL recruits, then the story would have been different. From this aspect itself it was known that they were not at all interested in realizing the due rights of BSNL recruits. Let’s hope that the legal fight for EPF Full Pension and the average salary condition to 12 months will be upheld by Hon SC also to help the people who are not protected by the Government statutory Pension. The arguments will continue today.

Happy Independence Day 2021
