Stand Of Association On Forum Protest Against Formation Of Subsidiary Tower Company On 16-09-2015 (Today)

This association has earlier physically participated in the protest against subsidiary tower company. After meeting with CMD BSNL and having understanding on the issue it is difficult to say that formation of subsidiary tower company is not in the interest of the employees especially direct recruits. It is needless to state that our all the future and social benefits are on the basis of defined contribution hence independent of ownership of the company but totally depends on the financial health of the company. BSNL is presently running into the loss in tune of Rs 8000 Cr per annum and our pay revision is due on 01-01-2017. The implementation of pay revision benefit will affect our all the benefits including social and future security for next 10 years. It is impossible to gain that much of amount by 01-01-2017 by normal working to neutralize the loss so that all the benefits of 3rd PRC can be implemented.

Along with improving our work on field, BSNL board has to take some out of box policy decision to come out with healthy balance sheet. Formation of subsidiary company may be one of the solutions to come out from the loss on paper which will help BSNL to getting approval from administrative ministry for 3rd PRC benefits.

Although the fear of the forum is genuine that after formation of subsidiary tower company same may be open for joint venture or may be sold to private company but still it is a matter of suspect. It is hard to say that such decision will harm or improve our future benefits but one thing is very much sure if such decision is not taken we are not going to receive the 3rd PRC benefits which will put on loss forever. Considering all the pros and cons association has decided to extend only moral support at this point of time and final decision for participating in future struggle of forum will be taken after getting more clarity on this issue.

This association is receiving number of communication regarding filling form for MT keeping in view the last date. Although, there is no need to clarify such thing knowing well that Forum of AIGETOA & AIBSNLEA is fully committed and confident to fight against MT recruitment till last breath. Now when our CMD is fully convinced and has given his words and commitment to stop this MT recruitment there is absolutely no need to worry. The way CMD has assured this forum, there is no reason to have unfaith on him yet if anything goes wrong forum will start struggle with more intensification and ensure no MT above JTO/JAO at any cost. Although many have applied for MT keeping them ready for the worst but we are confident that all executives of BSNL irrespective of their affiliation to association are fully against this proposed MT recruitment and ready to fight. Although this association has not stopped anyone to apply for MT but NOW there is absolutely no need to apply for MT when our CMD has given his full assurance and commitment for scrapping this proposed MT recruitment.

AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA Under the Banner of UF of BSNL Eexcutives' Association Served a Notice for Organizational Actions

AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executives' Association served a notice for organizational actions to protest against the arbitrary recruitment of Management Trainees and non-settlement of long pending HR issues. Click here for Notice   &  Click here for copy of the UF letter dated 03.09.2014


  1. Immediate withdrawal of the MT recruitment notification dated 1st May 2015, scrapping the MT RR altogether and implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy in BSNL. No lateral entry of fresher’s at any level above JTO/JAO/Equivalent.

  1. Resolution of various other pending HR issues like finalization of standard pay scales (E2 for JTO/Equivalent and E3 for SDE /Equivalent), Holding of CPCs to fill up vacant JAG/STS/Group B etc. The issues have already been submitted by this forum as enumerated in Annexure-II of this letter.

Protest activity and schedule is as follows:

  • 18-05-2015 to 25-05-2015 – Signature Campaign and bearing black badges.

  • 25-05-2015 - Lunch hour demonstration at SSA/Circle/BSNL CO Level.

  • 09.06.2015 and 10.06.2015 - Two days Dharna at SSA/Circle/BSNL CO Level.

CPSEs have been recommended to make a recruitment of fresh professionally qualified candidates (Called ET or MT as per the work profile of the company) at the feeder level (E1 TO E3) of executives for the management succession plan. BSNL has already made recruitment of professionally qualified candidates at E1A (equivalent to E2) there is no question of making another recruitment at E3. There is no precedence in CPSEs to have two level of lateral recruitment in executive’s cadre. Fresh candidates recruited from any institute of the world cannot be better than existing qualified executives already selected among lakhs of candidates through toughest All India Competition and acquired vast experience in telecom operation and Finance. Proposed MT recruitment in BSNL is not at all required and this is not only unique in CPSEs but it is also highly abusing, demoralizing and complete undermining of existing executives.

Proposed recruitment is nothing but just the vested interest of dirty minds whihc BSNL management is trying to justify as a replacement of ITS recruitment being done in DOT era. They have perhaps forgotten that BSNL is CPSE and JTO/JAO recruited after formation of BSNL is professionally qualified executives not the group-C employees. If the proposed MT will termed as replacement of ITS then career of professionally qualified executives (JTO/JAO) recruited through toughest all India competition in executive’s cadre will be like erstwhile JE (non-executive) where most of us will retire with the tag of Adhoc or POTA DE. So for professionally qualified executives have worked under less qualified executives in the name of age and experience but now not at all ready to accept the reverse formula after gaining age and experience and not ready to work under similarly qualified executives having zero experience and younger in age. Friends proposed MT recruitment is nothing but downgrading the status of already recruited JTO/JAO.

All the CHQ Office Bearers/Circle Secretaries/Branch Secretaries/activists are requested to mobilize and make this organizational action programme a grand success against the arbitrary and indifferent attitude of BSNL Management. Approach all the executives irrespective of their affiliation, explain vested interest of management in making recruitment of MT, its impact on our career and status, its impact on our moral and productivity of the company, its impact of industrial peace and discipline etc and make them the part of this historic agitation.
