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.

Cause list of the case at Hon Ernakulam High Court on 25.06.2015

27-06-2015 CHQ News:

After lot of persuation BSNL management decided to circulate the Hon SC direction, DoPT and DoT orders on the eligibility of Diploma holders with 10 years service "equivalent" to Engineering Degree for the promotion to EE in Civil/Elect etc wings. This will address one of the long pending issue and SNEA demand for parity in promotion in all wings. 

GS, SNEA(I) informed GS and AGS of AIBSNLEA about the unfortunate development at Hon. Ernakulam High Court where the urgent application for early hearing of the JTO to SDE promotion case is not heard as AIBSNLEA, one of the respondent in the case not accepted the notice and filed vakalathnama which resulted in ďservice not completeĒ. The appeal was filed in the Hon HC in the first week of Feb, 2015 but even after 5 months, they could not accept the notice and file vakalathnama. The handling of such cases which affects the career growth of thousands of JTOs by the Associations so casually is unimaginable. However they promised early action.


Update on JTO to SDE promotion case at Hon.High court,Kerala.

The MA filed by SNEA(I) in Hon High Court of Kerala for early hearing of the appeal and vacation of interim order on JTO to SDE promotion is listed for hearing today. SNEA(I) was pursuing with BSNL for filing the reply and an MA for early hearing. After that we are pursuing with the High Court registry for early listing of the case. BSNL also filed an MA in this regard on Monday praying for early hearing and vacation of interim order.

GS and CS/KRL met the Sr lawyer Sri O. V. Radhakrishnan defending our case at Ernakulam on 13.06.2015 and held detailed discussions about the case during his visit to Kerala.

As per the MA filed by SNEA(I) and BSNL for urgent hearing, the case come up for hearing today.
Unfortunately the case could not be heard as the service is not completed for respondent no. 16, AIBSNLEA. The rep 16, AIBSNLEA not filed even Vakalathnama accepting the notice and their lawyer was not present in the court. Hon court directed to complete the service to AIBSNLEA and then list the case.

SNEA(I), Chennai Telephones wishes all the officers who are going to appear for the JTO to SDE LDCE examination scheduled on 21.06.2015. We wish them good luck and good future.
