JTO to SDE promotion case at Hon Kerala High Court:

The case came up on 20.07.2015 and after partial hearing the case was adjourned to 27-07-2015 (Monday).


JTO to SDE promotion case at Hon Ernakulam High Court: After preliminary hearing, Hon Court posted the matter to 20.07.2015 for final hearing and disposal. Our lawyer and BSNL pleaded for vacation of stay or disposal of the case as there is no merit in the case. 4 or 5 officers are opposing the promotion of thousands of JTOs, our lawyer pointed out. The applicants lawyer opposed it on the plea that they are questioning the policy and hence matter has to be heard in detail. According to the convenience of all parties, the matter posted to 20.07.2015 for final hearing and disposal.

The Sixth CEC meeting was held on 04.07.2015 at SNEA Bhavan. Com.N.Chitti Babu Circle President welcomed all and Presided over the meeting. Circle Secretary has presented the CEC report. The retired comrades A.Srinivasan AGM Infra-CM, S.Manoharan SDE BSS ANR and our AS(GSM&MKTG), V.Vimala Devi SDE ARD Extl and S.Latha SDE Seliyur CSC were felicitated during the CEC meeting.  Com.A.Srinivasan AGM Infra-CM, Com.S.Manoharan SDE BSS ANR and our AS(GSM&MKTG), Com.Rathinasamy SDE BSS AMB and Com.V.Vimala Devi SDE ARD Extl donated Rs.5000/- each to Circle and Com.S.Latha SDE CSC has donated Rs.1000/-.

  • Delegate list for AIC
In addition to the above the following issues were also discussed and the house authorized CS to take up in the appropriate forum:
  • Adopting a new procedure for cable fault clearance by floating a new tender by removing the existing cubic meter concept. In the neighboring circles, like TN and Kerala, the tender is floated for supply of labour. With this methodology they could achieve increased rate of fault clearance with reduced time duration.
  • Filling up of vacancies in DE/SDE cadre.
  • Drop wire allotments to be made division wise and not DGM wise.
  • Undue delay in making vendor payments. Dues must be monitored & settled at the earliest.
  • Procurement of Instruments for CSCs through divisional stores not directly by CSCs.
  • Battery Backup not available for many of the rural exchanges. 
  • Alternate mechanism to be evolved to file FIR and claim penalties for the cable damages caused by external agencies especially by private operators.
  • Laying of OFC along Metro-Rail track and its maintenance may be given to CMRL
  • Provision of FTTN connection as provided by competitors
  • Formation of ERP core team as done by other circles.

Congratulations to one and all: 

The Joint committee meeting today on Implementation of standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A come to a historic decision to recommend standard pay scales E2 and E3 replacing non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.01.2007 for the basic cadres of JTO/JAO, SDE/AO and equivalent cadres.

Arrears will be paid once company become profitable. The official side strongly opposed any cascading effect as it is not in the purview of the committee and having huge implications in the future even though all Associations demanded for the same.

By this, one of our major demand for standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO is nearing resolution and further we could stop the proposed move to demote the basic cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO by reducing the pay scales.

The Jt committee was reconstituted on 08.05.2015 as a result of the SNEA(I) agitation in April/May, 2015 and the fruitful discussions held on 06.05.2015.

The next meeting of the Jt committee will be held on 27.07.2015 for discussing CPSU cadre hierarchy and first TBP uniformly after 4 years.

We extend our heartful gratitude to all our comrades who supported us to resolve the issue

Congratulations, another list of SDE to DE Looking After arrangement order issued.

CHQ News:

This is rejoinder to some of the misleading information published in the website of AIBSNLEA. SNEA(I) never claimed that it is directly a party in the JTO to SDE promotion case. For strategic reasons, SNEA(I) fighting the case in the name of the additional respondents no 6 to 14 and private respondent 7 from Chennai and 8 from Jabalpur who are SNEA(I) members in the original case at CAT and High Court(HC) by engaging Sr Lawyer Sri. O. V. Radhakrishan. The reply, MA, urgent memo etc will be filed in the name of the respondents. In Chennai also SNEA(I) fought the case in the name of private respondents only. Similarly in most of the cases, due to strategic reasons, SNEA(I) is fighting in the name of affected party, eg: 1966 seniority, 270 seniority, 147 seniority etc. In few cases only, SNEA(I) is directly a party like ITS case, 3G case, MT case, LDCE case etc.

In the name of private respondents, SNEA(I) is directly party in the case. AIBSNLEA simply impleaded in the CAT and even they couldnot include a single affected party (JTO) from Kerala or elsewhere alongwith them! It is admitted by them that they are not filed the vakalathnama in the Hon HC even after 5 months since February. Without filing vakalathnama and appointing a lawyer, how they are fighting for the JTOs in the HC for the last 5 months, it is not known? If they are sincere in the case why they didnít file the vakalathnama and engaged the lawyer for 5 months? Why they are waiting for the notice from court? They should have been available in the court from day one to defend the case. Are they not aware of the fact that appeal is filed in the HC?  Everytime in the website they are writing that they are fighting in the high court but in reality they are not appeared even once in the HC. In the CAT also just they filed an impleadment application but their lawyer was not present in most of the days even on the final hearing dates in the Tribunal. This fact we didnít report earlier keeping trade union ethics. Whether they impleaded in the case just to delay the case like this? However, we are very happy to know that now they filed the vakalathnama on getting intimation from us.
