Circle President and Circle Secretary met CGM on 18.03.2014 and discussed about the south area issues; informed about the discussion we had with GM(South) on 12.03.2014. We have handed over the copy of letter to CGM. We discussed the relief of Com.R.Ravichandran DE from CPT SSA to Chennai and handed over a letter in this connection. We also suggested to form a separate team for FTTH execution. CGM patiently listened all the issues and assured us that suitable instructions will be issued.
Meeting with GM (South):
Circle President, Circle Secretary, Area Secretary (South) and Divisional Secretary (STM) met GM (South) on 12.03.2014. The meeting started in an emotionally charged atmosphere. CS handed over the letter to GM (South) and informed that we came to discuss about the points mentioned in the letter. Immediately after going through the letter GM (South) stood up in anguish & said “I’m not ready to discuss on these issues and you can take up the matter with CGM”. We said that the issues pertain to South Area and the matter needs to be discussed with the in-charge not with the Head of the Circle. We informed to GM(S) that the Executives in the South Area are working under very much pressure and with humiliation. These hostile working conditions are prompting the Executives to volunteer for retirement.
GM(S) informed us that he had an objective, monitoring mechanism, etc., for the betterment of BSNL.
Comrades what the GM (South) is expecting from all (Executives/Non-Executives) of us is that to make south area as Number one in ChTD. We the employees (Stakeholders) of BSNL do also have no second thought on it but a fast reformation cannot yield the result. More than 80% of the south area cable networks are being damaged by external agencies and our Executives are toiling like anything in the field for the immediate restoration/clearance of faults. We could gather some of the wishes of GM (South) are:
1. Pillar diagrams are to be prepared for all the pillars.
2. All the pillars are to be rehabilitated. The rehabilitation works for the high revenue fetching pillars are to be carried out immediately.
3. All the DPs are to be rehabilitated. Whenever the TM is going to clear a fault in a DP he has to rehabilitate the DP there itself.
4. Fault incidence should be NIL in the rehabilitated pillars other than Cable fault.
5. TNF area is to be categorized as TNF-1, TNF2, TNF3… and action is to be initiated according to TNF category to make the TNF to be feasible.
6. Action to be taken for zero meter reading VPTs.
7. Right from TM to DGM has to visit customer premises in case of repeated faults.
8. GM(S) has formed a committee for local purchases (Tape, Jelly, etc...). This committee will finalize the genuinety of vendor for each item. Top 10 genuineness vendor names will be displayed in the intranet. The field level officers should get quotation from the finalized vendors and the items are to be procured from them.
9. One day exclusively to be allotted for provision of new line and BB and no other activities are to carried out on that day.
10. Reports for requirement of stores,fault incidence/clearance and so on.
The meeting lasted for more than 4 hours. GM (South) has consumed (spoken) 90% of the meeting duration. During the discussion GM(South) has shared his experience when he was playing an active role as CGM in Andaman & Nicobar.(To know more information browse Andaman & Nicobar Circle link in AIBSNLEA site). GM (South) has categorically told that he cannot be silent Area GM but want to be so active. Finally, he made an appeal to us to make use of our influence for his transfer.
