BSNL proposal for replacement of E1A and E2A scales by E2, and E3 and subsequent up-gradation of IDA pay scales upto E7 has been cleared by Internal Finance of DoT (by DDG(Fin)) with a comment to take the concurrence of DPE to accord the approval of DoT. The proposal has to be cleared by Member(Fin), Addl Secretary and finally by Secretary, DoT before sending it to DPE. The stand of Addl Sec is very important as he has taken a very negative stand since beginning on this issue.

The presidential directives on 3% contribution from BSNL towards 30% superannuation benefits to the BSNL recruited employees is expected shortly from DoT since it is already been approved by Hon MoS(IC).

GM(SR) in the presence of GM(Pers) will hold a meeting tomorrow 11.30 Hrs with the representatives of the United Forum to discuss regarding implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy.

CMD BSNL, called a meeting of the Forum of BSNL Associations and Unions on 08.09.2016 to discuss the development and viability related issues and the strategies to counter the Reliance Jio. The discussions focussed on 1) Challenge from Reliance Jio (2) Financial performance of BSNL and (3) Strategies.  Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL is the most important issue before us. In so many PSUs like Air India and ITI, Pay scales were not revised due to the financial conditions.  Hence, BSNL should grow further and increase its revenue and should become profit making

Reliance Jio has invested about 1.5 lakh crores rupees for the network. To counter them BSNL is announced very attractive offer of landline for Rs.49, Broad Band for Rs 249 and mobile for 1099. In two years time 40,000 Wi-Fi Hotspots will be installed at a cost of 1,500 Crores and 3G BTSs also will be added. Globally, landline demand is increasing, so we have to concentrate this sector by laying OF cable nearest to the customer premises. Assn pointed out that large number of waiting lists are generated by the offer but field units will be able to provide the connections if the availability of dropwire, 5 pair cable, low count OF cable etc are improved. Shortage of dropwire is a major problem which has to be addressed. CMD informed that as per the feedback given by us last week he already instructed DIR(CFA) to increase the material availability in all the field units. Further we suggested empowering CGMs to procure dropwire directly from the factories as per their requirement.
