25.11.2011 Director(HR) writes to Jt. Secy(T), DoT regarding clarification on senority of Govt. servant on appointment in BSNL through technical resignation and the said letter of the BSNL Management suggests the following,(i) ITS officers on technical resignation get full govt. pension & all other retirement benefits.(ii) Get full salary in the form of pay protection on their so called fabricated diabolical recruitment in BSNL including for the service rendered in DOT(iii) Maintain their UPSC seniority even after resignation from DOT and fresh recruitment in BSNL.ITS dominated BSNL Management game plan is exposed in the above communication made by BSNL Management to DoT to take back ITS Offciers under different absorption conditions. About 4.5 lakhs Group-‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘D’ employees were absorbed from DoT to BSNL w.e.f. 01.10.200 with pension rule 37(a). The fact remains that majority of the Group-‘A’ officers belonging to Telecom/Finance/Accounts, Telecom Civil/Electrical/Arch./TF Engineering Wings took absorption in BSNL/MTNL but the majority of ITS Offciers don’t excersie option in favour of BSNL/MTNL on one pretext or the other. It is understood that as per the Govt. policy, a Govt. deptt. concerted to PSU can’t have two type of absorption conditions with different pension rules. ITS Officers in a calculated way defeated the process of absorption of Group-‘A” officers in BSNL/MTNL & now along ITS entry in BSNL/MTNL through backdoor.It will pave the way to litigations which will further adversely affect the viability of BSNL. BSNL/MTNL excutives non-excutives are devoted & fully committed for the growth of both the companies. The survival of the compnies, is the survival of its employees bread. BSNL/MTNL Managent should entrust the responsibility to its committed work force rather than the ITS officers who dis-own absorption in BSNL/MTNL.

Secy(T) and expressed our serious concern against phased repatriation of deputationists from MTNL/BSNL and discussed the contingency Plan submitted by United Forum wherein we explained that MTNL/BSNL are having sufficient absorbed Group-‘A’ level executives i.e. DGMs/GMs/CGMs to man the services and their growth.We opposed back door entry of ITS Officers in MTNL/BSNL and requested that DoT should implement its repatriation order in true sense and should not allow back door entry to ITS in BSNL under different Pension Rule since many Group-‘A’ officers have already taken absorption in MTNL/BSNL with certain Pension Rule. MTNL/BSNL Managements should entrust the responsibility to their own executives rather than depending on those who don’t want to shoulder the responsibility by taking absorption. We pleaded that MTNL/BSNL Managements should immediately be directed first to fill up the vacant HAG/SAG/JAG equivalent posts by conducting immediate DPCs since eligible executives are available. AST/JST appreciated our concern and assured to apprise Secy(T). However, they mentioned that we should regularly meet CMD/Director(HR), BSNL for immediate holding of DPCs.

17-11-2011 Meeting with Shri Milind Deora, Hon’ble MOSC&IT: GS(TEAM),GS. President AIBSNLEA, GS, AGSs of SNEA(I) & GS/MEA of MTNL met Hon’ble MOS for C&IT Sh. Milind Deora & expressed their sincere gratitude & thanks for granting us meeting. We discussed with MOSC&IT the status of absorption process of Group -‘A’ officers in MTNL/BSNL and apprised MOSC&IT about sinister efforts and game plan of MTNL/BSN Managements to derail the process.Hon’ble MOSC&IT appreciated our concern and sought our opinion about how the issue can be resolved. We explained the repatriation order of DoT issued on 03.11.2011 is not being implemented in true sense by MTNL/BSNL managements on the pretext that without the presence of ITS Officers it is difficult to run both the PSUs which is totally unfounded and misleading. We informed MOSC&IT that more than 54,000 absorbed Group-‘A’ and Group-‘B’ level executives are available in MTNL/BSNL to maintain flawless Telecom services & are committed to the growth of both these Companies. ITS dominated MTNL/BSNL managements have more trust on the deputationists instead of its own absorbed Group-‘A’ level executives due to their cadre affinity, we informed MOSC&IT. Even the charge on repatriation of some ITS officers have been given to the deputationist ITS officers instead of absorbed Gr A officers only who are ultimately going to be repatriated. This is deliberate conspiracy of both the managements to sabotage the process of repatriation, we further informed MOSC&IT.Hon’ble MOSC&IT gave a very patient hearing fully understanding the implications of continuing duality on viability of MTNL/BSNL and mentioned that he is fully aware of the issue and assured he will try for early solution of the problem. MOSC&IT was fully convinced that BSNL/MTNL should have their own managements.

We expressed our serious resentment against the non implementation of DoT order dated 03.11.2011, which is adversely affecting the viability of MTNL/BSNL. On our query that whether DoT has revised the above order to stop further repatriation of deputationists. Concern Officers of DoT categorically mentioned that there is no change in DoT order and all deputationists are to be relieved compulsorily. It was informed that as per the MTNL/BSNL management feedback the existing executives are not interested to own the higher / additional responsibilities. On this we explained that it not true since the charge is not at all offered to them. They assured to look into the matter.

TEAM, GS & President AIBSNLEA, GS SNEA(I) and GS MEA met concerned officers in DoT dealing with the absorption of ITS and requested their intervention to expedite the absorption process of ITS Officers in MTNL/ BSNL. We expressed our serious concern against phased repatriation of unabsorbed ITS Officers from MTNL/BSNL and apprised them that MTNL/BSNL Management has a very calculated strategy in repatriating ITS Officers in a phased manner by giving sufficient time to invite litigations and thus sabotage the absorption process. Both the Managements are not at all interested to give responsibility to its absorbed executives because of very narrow considerations to safeguard the interest of the ITS Officers rather than safeguarding the interest of MTNL/BSNL. Employees of MTNL/BSNL need committed leaders and want immediate end of deemed deputation/foreign service to ensure viability of MTNL/BSNL, we impressed, and assured the concerned officers that we will put in our very best efforts and work in a truly dedicated manner to provide uninterrupted services to our users.Concerned officers categorically mentioned that Government is very firm to complete the absorption process and the unabsorbed Gr -‘A’ Officers are to be repatriated immediately to enforce the decision of the government on absorption of ITS. They reaffirmed and reiterated their confidence in the existing absorbed executives/non executives of MTNL/BSNL in providing uninterrupted Telecom services and ensuring growth of services.

Huge number of executives from all corners of Delhi MTNL participated in the meeting. A lengthy and healthy discussion took place regarding the current move of increasing revenue by 25% and betterment of services of MTNL. The members of every area of Delhi unit were agitated for undue pressure and threatening by senior officers in the name of improving ABF. The members were of opinion that even now senior officers /GMs are not taking serious steps for improving services and in turn ABF but they are trying to mislead the chief executive of Delhi unit by placing misinterpreted facts and figures before him. the only exercise is being done to manipulate the facts and figures and not to give the proper solution for improvement of services. The members gave valuable suggestions for improvement of services. It was unanimous opinion that if our under ground cable network and OFC cable network are improved then our credibility to provide better services will be established among the subscribers. The other big issue is shortage of items like modems/wi-fi modems, clip phones, jumper wire, drop wire and jointing kits for U/G cables & OFC cables etc . These shortages time to time damage our reputation in public and demolishes our serious effort to provide better services. It was suggested that these all items must be provided on as and when needed basis. The members were agitated for the negative attitude of present management for not resolving long pending issues of executives a) Holding of regular DPC in various cadres. b) Timely holding DPC for financial up gradation . c) Non settlement of ‘Bench Mark’ issue even after assurance of DIR.HR. d) Timely supply of required materials for maintaining the services. It was criticised specifically that our executives are being threatened for transfer to Mumbai in the name of ‘Non Performer’ and on the same time management totally failed to provide some innovative ideas for betterment of services.Therefore the CEC of TEAM Delhi unanimously of the opinion for condemning the negative and harassing behaviour of management and for improvement of services . these decisions of CEC Shall be conveyed to the management.
