CP, CS, AS(South) attended the GB Meeting Jointly conducted by the SNEA(I) Divisions of south area on 17.07.2014 at Chromepet Exchange. The meeting was organized by DS STM, DS CMT and DS CPT. Large number of SNEA(I) members attended the meeting. The meeting lasted for 4 hours.
During the meeting Com. L.Renganathan SDE P&AC was felicitated. Com. L.Renganathan retired on superannuation on 30.06.2014. His contribution towards the BSNL Organization and SNEA(I) is very much appreciable. He is so simple, honest and dedicated officer. We wish him a Happy, Peaceful and Healthy retired life.
During the course of discussion all the members have expressed their unwillingness to work in South area under humiliation and pressure. The GM(South) keeps on modifying his own instructions even before submitting reports on his earlier instructions. Everybody has appreciated the intentions of GM(South) to provide seamless services to the customers but at the same time it is the responsibility of the management to provide man power, materials & also time and allow the Executives to execute the work. In many of the External units the SDEs are working without JTOs / TTAs even Sr.TOA(G). All the clerical works and technical works are being carried out by the SDEs without any assistance. Before completing one instruction other instructions are issued in modified formats. The Executives working in south area are in a confused state. They are unable to decide "What to do and What not to do". If we allow the situation to continue, then the services at south area would be deteriorated rather than improvement.
CP and AS(South) addressed the meeting. CS on his address very categorically told that the SNEA(I) will not simply watch when the members are under pressure. CS briefly informed the house about the ongoing struggle by SNEA(I) Kerala comrades against the CGMT, Kerala. Finally CS informed that the situation at South area would be escalated to CGM and seek CGM‘s intervention. If no improvement could be found even after CGM‘s intervention, then the future course of action would be decided in the COB meeting.
The Circle Secretaries of SNEA(I), AIBSNLEA and AIBSNLOA met CGM, Chennai Telephones on 18.07.2014 and submitted a letter to retain all the DEs, who have been retained upto 31.03.2014 on their promotion. We have requested CGM to take up the matter immediately with BSNL,CO. CGM was kind enough to listen our request and assured us that he will put his best effort for the retention of the officers.

DPE out rightly rejects the proposal sent by DOT recently to allow BSNL to introduce replacement scales of E1A and E2A for JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs in BSNL based on the decision of the BSNL Board.
This Association had been having consistent interaction with the concerned officers in DPE for the last about three months to impress upon them and convince them not to take an exception to the proposal of DOT to allow BSNL to introduce non-standard IDA replacement scales of E1A and E2A in BSNL for JTO/SDEs in the context of guidelines issued by DPE to all the CPSUs not to extend non-standard IDA scales. DPE has further directed DOT to correct any aberration, if at all, in this regard.
With the rejection of proposal by DPE, our demand to extend standard IDA scales of E2 and E3 for JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs gets strengthened since BSNL Management very recently during our organizational actions made a firm commitment to us that it will consider our demand of extending standard pay scales of E2 and E3 with an open mind in case DPE takes a contrary view to the decision of BSNL Board to allow extending replacement IDA scales of E1A and E2A to JTOs, SDEs etc. This is a very positive development and surely brings us closer to resolution of our demand of extending standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs, SDEs etc.
This Association had series of discussions with concerned officers in DPE on this issue. CHQ president and GS had a detailed discussion on this issue with Secy/DPE and JtSecy/DPE nearly three months before and succeeded in impressing upon them to reiterate to DOT that BSNL must switch over to standard IDA scales approved by Govt. based on the recommendations of 2nd PRC and immediately correct any anomalous situation that prevails in BSNL with regard to existence of non standard IDA scales. This is a big milestone as far as resolving the issue of extending standard scales of E2 and E3 to JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs etc is concerned and gives us huge strategic leverage to get the issue resolved.

Case at Hon Supreme Court on 147 seniority.
The SLPs alongwith the MAs filed by the applicants and BSNL came up for arguments today. The applicants (147 officers) and BSNL pleaded for allowing the promotions. Our senior lawyer strongly opposed any stay on Hon EKM High Court order and argued that any promotion including 147 officers will be as good as stay of Hon EKM judgment and CAT judgment. After hearing the pleading from both sides, Hon SC decided for final hearing of the SLPs in the last week of September and dispose off the matter on merit. Meanwhile Hon SC allowed to go ahead with promotions as per the existing seniority subject to the outcome of the SLP.
