Some so called Trade unions in MTNL who call themselves champions of the cause of the  members but actually they are not . To understand their reality you all have to go through the following story :

“ एक रेलवे का टीटीई (टिकट चेक करने वाला) टिकट चेकिंग के दौरान जो यात्री खाना खा रहे होते थे उनके खाने में से रोटी लेकर खाता रहता था और अपनी भूख मिटाता रहता था. रोटी का टुकड़ा लेते हुए टीटीई बोलता था कि “ दाने- दाने पर लिखा है खाने वाले का नाम “. ऐसा वो टीटीई रोज़ करता था. एक दिन एक यात्री टीटीई के रोज़ के कारनामें से तंग आकर कहा कि टीटीई साहब कुछ व्यक्ति ऐसे होते हैं कि जो कुछ नहीं करते परन्तु अपनी जेब में एक मोहर रखते हैं जिस पर उनका नाम लिखा होता है और उनका काम होता है दाना उठाया और मोहर लगायी और यह कहते हुए कि दाने- दाने पर लिखा है खाने वाले का नाम और दाने को खा जाते हैं.

Our these so called champion Trade Unions are always behave like the TTE of above mentioned story. They will not do any work but they will not take even a minute to paste the posters as well as to put up their write ups on website/social media about all issues as if they have done it.  Every employee/executive knows about their role in every issue pertains to the welfare of the employees/executives e.g. the issues relates to the payment of Rs.3000/- per month to the executives at the time of absorption ( Because of their negative role every executive had suffered a loss of Rs.15000/- ) , implementation of E2 Scale for JTO/JAO and similarly placed executives at the time of absorption , implementation of 30% fitment at the time of implementation of 2nd PRC report in MTNL., issue related to revision of pension (who retires prior to 01.01.2007 ) and payment of pension by the Govt. of India to the executives/employees of DOT absorbed in MTNL. They are same peoples who have agreed for the pension Trust in MTNL. Because they wanted to be trustees of the proposed pension trust.

Comrades ! our association believes in doing the work for the welfare of executives/employees and not in publicity that is why some times we lack in publicizing our credentials but we do not mind . Our association has all along worked for the cause of the executives/employees and will continue to do the same.

2nd CEC of Mumbai Circle was held today at Telephone House, Prabhadevi, Dadar West. Meeting was chaired by Com. A.K.Kaushik, GS, TEAM on his way back from Mysuru after attending All India conference of AIBSNLEA. During deliberation members expressed their anger about the indifferent attitude of MTNL management, especially that of Shri. P.K.Purwar, who denied regular promotion to SMs in E5 Scale for 75% of executives and released promotion order only to 50% of the vacancies. Indifferent attitude of management in reducing the number or sanctioned strength was condemned by members and opined that we should stop accepting officiating assignments.

Com. A.K.Kaushik explained the development in details and told that 100 % the vacancies shall be due for executives since ITS absorption has attained finality and no recruitment policy is formalised for top management. The then CMD had agreed to release 75% of the vacancies to the existing executives as one time relaxation. Shri. P.K.Purwar, the present CMD is sitting financial implications and wants one more month to decide on. We failed to understand how regular promotion to executives will have financial implications especially when there is was no additional increment offered ? Shri. P.K.Purwar, CMD, Who was holding Dir(Finance) position of MTNL is reckless in his approach. Management always compare pay package with BSNL and Pay scales of MTNL are higher. They fail to realise that BSNL Executives are drawing more pay than MTNL employees. BSNL offered two additional increments since absorption and is offering one increment to their executives on their regular promotion to the next higher grade. Further, BSNL executives were paid allowances which MTNL executives were denied. Except for difference in scale all BSNL executives are drawing more than MTNL executives, he pointed out. We the MTNL executives agreed to equate the scales to BSNL and demanded for merger to which they are reluctant.

On the issue of CGHS scheme, MTNL all of a sudden released the order and made CGHS facility as a mandatory option. Members expressed dissatisfaction on management for declaring CGHS as a mandatory option for all executives. While BSNL pay entire amount of onetime payment towards CGHS subscription, MTNL Board has restricted its contribution to maximum of Rs.15,000/- which is unjust. MTNL is bound to pay entire amount of onetime payment as is being done by BSNL. Com. A.K.Kaushik requested the retired executives not to press panic button about this order. MTNL is no one to issue the order. From Minutes of CGHS (Policy) unit of Ministry Of Health and Family welfare issued on 20.6.2016, it was learnt that road block has been removed. DoT has to work out corresponding IDA pay scale and finally workout contributions to be paid by individual pensioners. This will take time and we will discuss with them. Our demand was to get individuals option for CGHS facility.

 MTNL paid Rs.7000 Crore for 3G Spectrum and loosing around Rs.500 Crore interest apart from Rs.4000 Crore on network deployment. Just for Rs.275 Crore from BSNL the investment on mobile network and spectrum charges can‘t be sacrificed. Rather Merger with BSNL could have been the best option.

To oppose the move of management in above sphere it has been resolved to serve notice for protest action plan. “It is here by resolved in CEC meeting held today, the 21st June, 2016, at Mumbai to serve notice to the administration on issues related with Promotions for 25% remaining vacancies, issue of Promotion orders for those who retired, Option for CGHS facility, Payment of one time charges for subscription to CGHS by MTNL and against Merger of GSM Service with BSNL GSM Service as against our demand for merger of BSNL and MTNL in To-to.” This resolution of CEC, Mumbai will be placed for discussion at CHQ level. 

CEC Mumbai in its meeting has decided to appeal to its members who have been promoted as Sr. Manager at E5 grade on regular basis to kindly donate Rs.5000/-.

  • Pending HR issues (example of SDE to DE and JTO to SDE Regular promotion): He explained the hurdles in the case.

TEAM explained him that since 1994 executives are SDE and even after 22 years no one has moved even inch ahead due to neglecting attitude of administration specially HR section of company.

We gave him some examples of shortage of materials and explained the pity condition of field executives specially SDOs/DEs/AMs . Who cannot face public due to deteriorating services because of shortage of stored items.

Status of Hon’ble Supreme Court case hearing today on TES Gr “B” seniority:

Today in the Court No. 6 at Item No. 1 Hon’ble Mr. Justice Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla and Hon’ble Mr Justice S.A. Bobde heard the case on TES Gr.”B” seniority wherein the 146 LDCE quota SDEs Senior advocate Mr Saran demanded contempt against the recent 213 DGMs promotion orders. Hon’ble Apex Court after hearing the arguments didn’t admit the case mentioning that the 213 DGMs promotion orders have been issued subject to outcome of the court case and the case is already pending for hearing here in the Apex Court . The senior advocate of 147 SDEs further pleaded to decide the case along with the Rule-206 seniority case.. But the Hon’ble apex court has told that they will 1st decide the recommendation of the committee constituted by this apex court under the chair man ship of   Hon’ble justice   Rama Murthy and thereafter only they will take up the other issues and accordingly Hon’ble bench of supreme court has adjourned the matter .Other side advocate Mrs Rani Chhabra demanded de-tagging of the 147 SDEs seniority case from the Rule-206 seniority case. The next date of hearing will be intimated later on.

Since, the contempt of the court against the DGM promotion is not admitted in the Hon’ble Apex Court, now BSNL/MTNL management can continue to fill-up all the vacant DGM posts.
