Update on direction delivered by Hon CAT , Ernakulam on 1:1 Seniority in JTO to SDE Promotions

An Order is directed to BSNL by Hon CAT , Ernakulam on 1:1 Seniority in JTO to SDE Promotions. Click here for the Operating portion of direction. The Order itself is self explanatory but still perhaps for some, it may yet not be understandable. In their quest for justifying their stand and misadventures and to stop BSNL recruits from getting their due promotions, they waylaid Management also and forced them to ignore the judgement as well as timely advices given by AIGETOA leadership. They used names for the memebrs of AIGETOA and told that our perception about the judgement is not correct. Just one week back, some absurd updates were given by proclaimed leg pullers of BSNL recruits wherein they updated just the contrary and were infact preaching AIGETOA and its memebrs.
The direction by Hon’ble Court today clears all doubts on the judgement and the misleading information’s by some corners once again can be thrown to the dust bin.
Justice may be delayed, but one day it comes up and stand against odds to safeguard the truth. The efforts of direct recruits to safeguard it’s delayed and justified promotions in SCF Quota even after a clear Hon HC judgement , which is now again upheld by Hon Court was repeatedly ignored and suppressed and now Hon’ble Court also emblodened our stand that BSNL is not doing the right thing by ignoring Direct Recruits from promotions. We never wanted such situtation where just because of the showcasing of one upmanship by one particular group, management has been put on a tight spot despite having honest intentions to promote people. This is the reason, we have time and again been requesting and updating management about the repurcussions of the arbitrary move. But since the number game always prevails, using the guise of the numbers, they mislead management and in fact have now put the promotion orders issued in June 2018 at stake. It wont be a wonder if court orders to revert the already executed promotions under Seniority Cum Fitness quota. Now also those champions of Law should realise the truth and instead of misleading management, they should come forward and let all vacancies be filled up in 1:1 ration so that at least reversal of anybody does not takes place.
We can’t blame Management alone for this whole episode who were actually mislead. Rather the Management was made to do the wrong by some deliberate corners working against the interests of BSNL Recruits. As a result, the head of the orgnaisation and head of the Personnel wing is facing contempt before court of law, this is the last thing any employee of the company wants. The image of the company & embarrassing situation to its top officials has been taken to court rooms just because of unnecessary pressure from some corners. When there was clear Hon Court direction & despite legal opinions – the promotion chances of BSNL recruits were simply derailed . The Answer is Simple and points to a single point who are yet reluctant to accept the truth.
The plea was to follow promotions on 1:1 ratio of PR Vs DR : The promotion order of 3139 executives itself will tell the story ( out of 3139 – PR Vs DR ratio stand as 3117 Vs 22 ). None of the arguments made by BSNL were taken for granted and it was a primafacie contempt on Hon Court Directions. Now to comply with the directions - BSNL need to make BSNL recruit JTOs promotions accordingly. But some corners will suggest management to appeal in high court which will put management to a more tight spot as the Judgement has been delivered by Hon’ble High Court only who will never take any Lenient view. Only respite is to promote the DRs also.
The excess Quota occupation by promotees ( Quota of DR JTOs occupied by absorbees ) : The arguments of BR JTOs were well taken into and Hon Court convinced on this part , that there were excess quota occupancy almost on all the vacancies. The gravity of the situation will be known to each BSNL recruit when the fact is open before them that , Out of the 3139 promotions made
Almost 1700 absorbees who have joined after 2001 in JTO cader were awarded with back dated YOR o from 1996 to 1999 and promoted above BR JTOs
There was no attempt on correct calculation of excess quota / excess occupancy – only through which the Hon HC direction be complied with and this made the remaining 1400 promotees who were placed for promotions without 1:1 with DR JTOs.
Now the million dollar question arises.
Whether the recognised corners who made this wrong interpretations and misleading informations – be made responsible for this Time , Money wastage of BSNL along with the demotivation made to BSNL Recruits? We advise those corners , to stay away from playing the career aspects of BSNL recruits and pray that good sense prevails. Even now they are busy trying to mislead management by stating that promotions through DPCs are not possible. They are so much afraid of promotions through Regular RRs that they went to the extent of suggesting management that giving promotions through DPC will result in financial burden as all getting promotions shall be getting one increment. They suggested that promotions through CPSU will save money for BSNL as in CPSU, executives wont be getting the increment.
They have done the same thing in promotions for List 8 executives. They derailed the process which was moving on at good pace. Their so called parity demand also stops for them at promotions for Executives Promoted through Seniority Cum Fitness in the year 2009 in list 9 forgetting that those promoted thrugh LDCE Quota in 2013 are also at Par. They forget that AIGETOA is sitting as watchdog and will not allow them to play with careers of thousands and thiusands of BSNL recruits. AIGETOA will never allow list 9 to be operated without following Rota Quota. LDCE passed executives will have to be promoted along with SCF executives.
Atleast now those corners should come to the senses and intead of Misleading management, they should now try to promote all and fill up all the available vacancies. This will benefit all. The DRs as well as PRs ( To be specific BSNL recruited executives from PR quota).

UPDATES ON MEETING WITH GM (PERS)

AIGETOA was called today by GM (Pers) to present its view on the issue of parity in promotions. We categorically mentioned that as far as practicable there should be parity in promotions in all the streams. However, this parity in promotions should not be used as tool to delay the promotions of other stream.

On the issue of promotions from JTO to SDE, AIGETOA categorically mentioned that all available vacancies as on date should be filled up for all the eligible candidates. All the vacancies including those arisen due to recent SDE to DE Promotions should also be included so that maximum available candidates can be promoted. If needed, some posts can be upgraded.

SDE to DE promotions: Complete list 8 should be covered. Partial List is not at all acceptable. For list 9, consideration should be based on Rota Quota between SCF and LDCE candidates. The list 9 should immediately be prepared in line with the SDE RR in the ratio of 2:1 between SCF and LDCE candidates. 

Relaxation should be given in Residency Period to cover maximum candidates for both the Technical as well as Finance stream to compensate for the loss due to delay in promotions from JAO to AO and JTO to SDE. Focus of management should be on making maximum young candidates as AGM so that void in middle level management can be done away with.

Shortfall in posts should be covered by surrendering the obsolete posts across various cadres so that more posts can be created on matching saving basis.

Further, CPSU should only be implemented after completing the current DPCs and promoting all eligible candidates. Further, in the proposed policy, Residency Period should be reduced to eliminate the probability of litigations and to ensure a fast career path for youngsters.

AIGETOA was categorical in stating that promotions through DPCs for filling up all the available posts should be done to avoid financial loss as well as uncertainty in promotions, then only CPSU should be implemented.

On asked about the course of action from management side, GM PERS told that they shall be taking a decision within next two days and the same shall be communicated. In the meanwhile, it is learnt that one of the Association is trying to exercise all its might and bargaining power to push management to notify CPSU. However, AIGETOA is firm in its view that existing posts should be filled up first before implementing CPSU. AIGETOA will take all efforts to extend the promotions to BSNL recruits and is ready to follow all actions.

GS also discussed the issue of request transfer cases of SDEs promoted recently through LDCE. GS said that when management itself has called for options for request transfer as a part of promotion exercise and all the requests have already been forwarded through proper channel, then asking the request once again through proper channel is not justified. GS requested to consider all the requests as they are very few in numbers. GM Pers agreed to reconsider based on the merit of the individual cases. We shall keep following this till it happens.

Tactics for blockade of career progression/promotions of BSNL recruits :

To the total dismay of BSNL Recruit JTOs, all on a sudden, some sections invented that some clarity lag on seniority fixation or rather creating purposeful ambiguity to delay the entire process. The move was unfortunate at the same time irrational and against thousands of BSNL recruits ( DR JTOs and LICE JTOs ) who aspire to get their claim on SCF promotions. Hon Court directed on the clarity of interpolation of excess Promotees who occupied JTO vacancies in excess of PR Quota w.r.t direct recruit JTOs, which in turn mutually beneficial to DR JTOs and BR LICE JTOs in the equal line.

We request to those who create confusions, to have a thorough reading and interpretation of judgement, failing which we can help them out. The blockade of career progression / promotions of BSNL recruits which have been happening for years should not go any forward. We can understand the desperation, as JTO to SDE DPCs & List 8 DPCs are on the go where majority (more than 90%) clearance would be BSNL recruits.

The same tactics was used for the pay parity issue taken for post 2007/08 batches. Despite knowing the fact after JTO RR-14 (which they themselves agreed to E1 scale) joinees will be eligible for E2 scale to the maximum , the management�s move for anomaly fixation was derailed by quoting the whole lot and in turn nothing happened till now. AIGETOA is into legal fight for pay anomaly correction & standard pay scales from that time. We are very much sure, with active and pragmatic support from all, we will be able to clinch this issue also.

The same tactics were, when BRs were to get SAB from at least w.e.f 1-1-2007, quoting financial implications and it took much time to recoup the starting point for BSNL recruits towards pending Superannuation benefits. AIGETOA is into legal fight for pending SAB & Medical benefits for BSNL recruits from that time.

Now again touching the career aspirations of BSNL recruits, in a time - where all the seniors enjoyed the promotions, unnecessary confusion is totally unwarranted . AIGETOA is not against any promotions at the same time we will fight it out to the maximum extent against any move to derail the career progression of BSNL recruits. ENOUGH is ENOUGH and hope that the point is clear. The act which squarely affect industrial harmony may not be resorted into by any manner. We once again hope that the targeted intentions will be changed to pragmatic way and good sense will prevail.
