 Sh. Ram Gopal along with Sh. K.R.Yadav met with ED Delhi on 08.10.2014 to discuss the critical civil condition of FMS wing (8rth floor Kidwai Bhawan) . It was brought to his notice that day by day the plaster of roof of FMS wing is falling from here and there. Human lives are under danger in the present circumstances. The fear of physical damage /casualties is always in the mind of working human beings.We explained him about the incident happened today in the room of DGM(Finance) FMS where a huge area of the ceiling felled during night hours. It is even beyond imagination about injury/causality ; if the same incident would have happen during office hours.

We explained each and every aspect of this type of negligence in the maintenance of building. We further expressed our sincere concern over the issue and it was clearly communicated that under such dangerous condition our executives cannot work any more. It was advised to him that some alternative sitting arrangement for FMS wing may be made available immediately.

ED Delhi agreed to our view point and after discussing with GM(SS),GM(IT),GM(PLG),CGM(O) and Chief Enggr.(civil) ordered  for immediate alternative arrangement for FMS wing. As a result room number 751 of Kidwai Bhawan was allotted for FMS wing within 1 hour. We express our sincere thanks to ED Delhi for immediate action.

   
 07.10.2014  Sh. Ram Gopal CS along with Sh. K.R.Yadav CP, Sh. S.P.S.Yadav AGS, Sh. Ajay Kumar FS, Sh. Anoop Srivastva AS (TY) and Sh. P.L.Rajpoot Area President (HQ) held meeting  CGM(O) on 07-10-2014 to discuss the following points.

  • Cable theft case of Khureji area of TY: We explained our grievances over this issue. We told him that we are pursuing this case since beginning and are moving post to pillar for restoration of the services. MTNL is facing revenue crunch and from this small area we have already lost nearly 15 crores of revenue and more than 5000 subscriber. The restoration of the services in that area is needed without any further delay.

    CGM(O) agreed to our view point about over delay  in      restoration of services and loss of revenue to MTNL. But he assured us that efforts are being made for urgent alternative arrangement for restoration of services by installing a RSU in that area.

  • Shortage of TSF-7 Kits : We told that this type TSF kits are in shortage since long back . Which is affecting cable jointing procedure. The problem needs to be addressed urgently.

CGM(O) explained the various steps of the procedure of this particular case and assured us that the kits will be available till 20th October -2014.

  • Delivery Period Extension: The MM cell is initiating procedure for procurement of stored items as per requirement after a lengthy procedure of tendering finally purchase orders are being issued to suppliers. But if the suppliers are supplying the required materials even after delay of 1 day the store in charge is not accepting the materials and again one file is moved for extension of Delivery period. This extension can be obtained from ED and thus the total procedure may take even more than one month and the material already reached one month prior is not distributing to the needed areas. We requested CGM(O) that this procedure may be cut short by delegating these powers to GM.

CGM(O) appreciated our positive approach and assured us to have discussion with ED in this regard so that the necessary instruction could be released.

  • Shortage of Executives in MM and Electronics: We explained him that Executives are being retired regularly from these areas and no other executives have been posted for their replacement. The General Managers are giving Local LA promotion to existing Executives who are already holding more than 2 charges. Which make them overburdened whereas in some areas executives are relaxed as compared to these areas. Therefore redeployment of executives is urgently needed as per requirement so that work may be distributed equally.

CGM(O) welcomed our idea and assured us that he will discuss this problem with GM(Admn.) for resolving this problem.

  • Allotment of TSF kits as imprest : We explained him that already a decision has been taken in MCM meeting for giving TSF kits to Areas as imprest so that vehicles of areas should not run even for taking one or two kits.

CGM(O) told that he is not aware of such decision about imprest of TSF kits however he is in favour of such practice. He assured to look into matter.

  • Delay in replacement of Exchange’s batteries and AC plants ( already scrapped) : We told him that in various areas exchanges are running on scrapped batteries and scrapped AC plants. Problem is very critical in nature and there is danger of interruption in services.

CGM(O) expressed his deep concerned over this problem  and told us that even now file is running here and there for procedural approval of financial expenditure.

  • Unauthorised construction over plots owned by MTNL in Delhi and NCR: We explained him the issue with more than 2 examples where some unknown persons have made some unauthorised constructions on MTNL’s Plots.

CGM(O) told us that he is aware of this problem and further assured us to take necessary steps with help of area GM and Police authorities.

  • Unhygienic conditions prevailing in buildings of MTNL Delhi and specifically in Kidwai Bhawan: We raised the issue of unhygienic conditions in buildings of MTNL and specifically in Kidwai Bhawan. We requested him to ensure hygienic condition in all buildings of MTNL . We specifically asked him to visit Kidwai Bhawan once so that the deteriorating condition of building and Toilets may be brought to his kind knowledge.

CGM(O) told us that he is aware of this problem and recently he has visited the Kidwai Bhawan . He assured us to take necessary steps with due consultation with GM(SS) .

  • Dies non cases of Executives working under GM(EB). We explained full case to CGM(D). He was having prior knowledge of this case too.

CGM(D) told that I have received representation from executives and I will decide each case on merit basis.

  • Below Bench Mark case of Executive: We asked CGM(D) to review the case of Smt. Madhu Orie PA under GM(OP) for below bench mark .

CGM (D) assured to have interaction with GM(OP) at earliest and will review the same accordingly.
