Pay anomaly on implementation of 2nd PRC --- Junior getting higher pay
than senior -- Antidating of increment: GS and both AGSs had a detailed
discussion with Smt. Smita Choudhary, GM(EF) on this issue. Estt wing
moved the file with our letter dated 09.11.2010 to EF wing for their
comments. EF wing returned the file to Estt wing with a noting that the
clarification dated 14.06.2010 is in order. Assn pointed out that the
clarification dated 14.06.10 is against FR and SR as the senior is not
getting his normal increment of 3% of basic after 12 months and senior
will have further pay loss for certain moths. To overcome this anomaly,
Assn pointed out that either antidating has to be allowed or uniform
increment date has to be implemented for all as done in Central Govt.

it's CCAs to fix the pension in accordance to the earlier order of BSNL
on fixation of pay for those having exercised option to continue in the
CDA scale till promotion/retirement after absorption in BSNL in

Tamil nadu circle congratulates com.G.L.Jogi, General Secretary for his
untiring effort in getting orders from DOT over the issue of option to
continue in CDA scale till retirement or promotion. He has met
several nodal ministries and run from pillar to post to get this
order from DOT. This case is being pursued by our beloved General

SNEA(I) Association, under the shrewd
leadership of Com.G.L.Gogi, in association with Telecom.Watch Dog filed
a PIL in Hon.Delhi High Court challenging arbitrary and malafide
selection of CMDs of BSNL/MTNL. PIL is against the process of selecting
CMDs exclusively restricted to ITS and avoiding best talented person
from the open market by incorporating some clause in the above
selection. The petitioners brought this arbitrary change to the
notice of the Government on 1/10/10 and clearly pointing out the
involvement of MOC Shri.A.Raja and his trusted man
Sh.A.K.Chandolia. The Delhi High Court has admitted the above
petition and issued notices to all the concerned. SNEA(I) is not
only for the welfare of the members but also to the betterment of BSNL

the above plan which is better than the plan envisaged by Kerala
Circle. All the salient features of the plan may be brought to the
knowledge of each and every members so that they can explain to the

members of SNEA, it is possible to achieve the target for November 2010.
As a special drive to motivate
our staff and also to easily acquire customers to use our BSNL ‘EN
NANBAN SUPER’ plan, TN Circle proposes to offer our ‘EN NANBAN SUPER’
plan free of cost with SIM and FRC free for a period of 15 days from
15th to 30th November. This free FRC offered is restricted to
only our BSNL outlets so that an opportunity is given for all our BSNL
staff involving themselves in acquisition of new customers.
We must specifically target our land
line customers and request them to use this Plan and make an effort to
explain about our Plan so that they are convinced about our Plan and
start using the same. The SSA heads will give a select list of
land line numbers to each of our staff so that they are able to go to
the residences of these land line customers, give a SIM and collect the
CAF and return the same to the CSC.
All the Comrades of SNEA and all the

accordance to the earlier order of BSNL on fixation of pay for those
having exercised option to continue in the CDA scale till
promotion/retirement after absorption in BSNL in accordance to the
provisions contained in the terms and conditions of absorption.

Secy. DOT: GS along with both the AGSs met Secy. DOT to greet him on
DIWALI and fully seize the opportunity to request him to expedite the
process of absorption of ITS as fast as possible since delay in
resolution of this issue has resulted in tremendous demoralization and
loss of confidence down the level. On the equipment procurement issue
Association strongly pleaded for effective and positive intervention of
DOT to put in place a sound and viable mechanism for immediate
procurement of GSM equipment. Association also pleaded with Secy. DOT
to ensure that BSNL is not discriminated against in terms of
implementation of telecom policy and licensing conditions as has been
happening in the recent past, and specifically mentioned two issues of
levying an increased license fess on AGR and Spectrum charges.
Association also requested him to uphold the policy commitment of the

We heartly welcome our
new CGM Shri.A.Subramanian and we promise to extend fullest
31st August 2010: Why do we need to participate and make the strike
on 7th Sept,10 called by the Central trade unions a total success
– what are the issues?
Not having been influenced by political
considerations of any kind at any point of time, this Association,
having all along maintained apolitical line of thinking, is constrained
to jump into the strike called by Central trade unions on 7th Sept, 10
for more reasons than one.
Fundamental reason that we all have to
recognize and accept is that this government is hell bent upon
destroying the very foundations of CPSUs of which BSNL is an important
national institution. The policies of the government of late do not
leave anyone in any doubt that the government in order to bridge its
huge fiscal deficit is determined to play havoc with CPSUs by
offloading its equity in strategic CPSUs, core of Indian economy.
Besides, the government is also pursuing policies to destabilize CPSUs
to eventually privatize them. In this context, let us have a close and
critical analysis of how the policies of the government have brought
BSNL to a brink of disaster.
A) Abolition of ADC:
The commitment made by the government that BSNL would be adequately
compensated through ADC by private operators for making huge
investments to develop wide spread country wide telecom infrastructure
in the remotest parts of the Country from which it has been getting
negligible returns has not been fulfilled by abolishing this regime and
giving huge benefits to private operators by allowing them to fully
exploit this infrastructure at the cost of incredibly huge investments
made by BSNL without any returns.
B) Charging of penal interest on
the notional loan given by Govt. to BSNL at the time of
Corporatization: Government has imposed and realized penal
interest from BSNL on notional loan of about Rs 6000 crores that it
gave to BSNL at the time of Corporatization in the year 2000 to start
its operations. The interest that government realized from BSNL is
quite huge compared to what the banks would have charged from BSNL had
it taken capital loan from them.
C) Non payment of USO fund: BSNL
is being consistently denied its legitimate share of USO funds. BSNL is
highest contributor towards this fund which is now being distributed to
private operators by amending the provisions of the Indian telegraph
act. Government at the moment has about Rs 20,000 crores from
USO fund out of which more than 15,000 crores are contributed by BSNL.
This fund basically meant for growth of landline services is being
lavishly distributed to the private operators to allow them flourish in
mobile segment for which the fund was never meant by amending the
Indian telegraph act.
D) Paralyzing the growth of BSNL
by scrapping tender for procurement of 45.5 m mobile lines in year
2007: BSNL which was running parallel to Airtel in mobile
segment till 2006-07 started crumbling when its crucial tender for
procurement of 45.5 m mobile lines was scrapped for no reasons. This
was the beginning of losing of its market share due to non availability
of equipment in potential Circles for more than three years and it
never recovered the ground. Today, it has a market share of about less
than 12% in wireless segment due to scrapping of the tender in year
2007. In fact, scrapping of the tender was the beginning of the grave
for BSNL. Even today, BSNL has virtually no tender on which it can
place orders for procurement of GSM equipment.
E) Exhausting the reserves of
BSNL by arbitrarily charging Rs 18,000 crores as 3G and BWA spectrum
charges from it in complete violation of the provisions of NTP 1999: Provisions
of NTP 1999 which clearly envisage that BSNL pay a nominal spectrum
fees for entering 2G/3G/BWA segment were completely violated by forcing
BSNL to pay highest bid charges for 3G/BWA spectrum and that too
without giving it an opportunity to participate in the bidding process
that was open to private operators. While private operators were given
unbridled freedom to bid for Circles of their commercial choice, BSNL
was strangulated by forcing it to pay Rs 18000 crores for highest pan
India bid for 3G/BWA spectrum. This shameful act of government is
nothing but to exhaust resources of BSNL to fill its coffers to reduce
fiscal deficit regardless of how it impacts the reserves and growth of
F) Out rightly rejecting
innovative reforms of Pitroda panel relating to equipment procurement
and induction of new management structure for revival of BSNL: Not
only have radical reforms of Pitroda panel for revival of BSNL been
thrown to the dustbin by the government and the bureaucracy, but
bureaucracy has finally succeeded in framing and finalizing the
eligibility criterion for selection of CMD/BSNL in such a manner that
gives a great scope for induction of a bureaucrat, even a retired one,
to preside over the destiny of BSNL in such a precarious situation.
Government has made a mockery of the efforts of Hon’ble PM to revive
BSNL by consigning to flames the innovative reforms of the Pitroda
panel constituted by Hon’ble PM that would have considerably helped in
turning around BSNL. Bureaucracy is fast digging the grave of BSNL by
framing such eligibility conditions for selection of CMD/BSNL.
G) Non resolution of
crucial issue of ITS absorption: Non resolution of this vital
issue deliberately by the government for the last more than five years
has adversely affected the growth of BSNL. Government even today is not
at all serious and interested to address this core and fundamental
issue of growth of BSNL. On one pretext or the other, the issue is
being dragged on for the last five years and today a situation has been
created where ITS enjoying everything best of both the Govt. and BSNL
has naturally no interest to get absorbed. This situation is created by
indecisiveness and lack of will on part of the Government.
H) Serious discrimination met
out by DOT to BSNL while implementing telecom policies: While
total freedom was given to private operators to procure GSM equipment
from Chinese vendors at cheap rates, BSNL was deliberately restrained
by DOT to procure equipment from Chinese vendors in the so called name
of National security thus badly impacting the procurement process of
BSNL and giving huge business advantage to private operators. It is
only very recently when this Association strongly condemned this
discriminatory attitude of DOT towards BSNL that this blatant
discrimination is waived off.
I) Unpardonable discrimination
met out to BSNL by DOT in the matter of calculation of AGR and payment
of license fees on spectrum: While huge concessions based on
the judgments of TDSAT were doled out to one private operator after
another by DOT to pay license fees on AGR excluding revenues earned
from nine telecom activities and payment of license fess on spectrum at
reduced rates, BSNL is even today being forced to pay license fees on
higher AGR(inclusive of revenues earned from non telecom activities)
and higher license fees on spectrum, thus deliberately depleting its
replete resources. DOT has made complete mockery of level playing
What else does the government
need to do to completely finish the very existence of BSNL. Policies of
the government have taken BSNL to a point of complete collapse and
disaster. Only the policies of the government, if we carefully analyze,
are instrumental in near total destabilization of BSNL. Since the
strike call given by Central trade unions in addition to other demands
also condemns the policies of the government to destabilize CPSUs/PSUs
to eventually privatize them, of which BSNL is a glaring example,
SNEA(I) cannot obviously be a mute spectator in not participating in
condemnation of the govt. policies to destabilize CPSUs. That is the
core issue. We are not at all going into the debate of whether the
strike has political connotations or not. What we know that policies of
government which have wrecked BSNL need to be vociferously and
unequivocally condemned and since the strike call is given by all
Central trade unions cutting across party affiliations, there is
absolutely no justification in labeling the strike as politically
motivated one. That is irrelevant and absurd as far as issues are
concerned. Besides, Central trade unions are also raising a very
significant demand of introducing a much more improvised and secure
pensionary scheme for employees of Central govt., including CPSUs,
inducted after 1995.
CHQ of SNEA(I) calls upon each and every Comrade in every nook and
corner of the Country to AGGRESSIVELY AND FULLY participate in
the strike on 7th Sept, 10 to register their strongest disapproval and
condemnation of the policies of the Central government to destabilize
CPSUs in general and BSNL in particular. Make the strike a spectacular
success to get total and committed support of Central trade unions for
our own strike of three days in October, 2010 to address vital issues
of revival of BSNL.

mobile service in Leh:
News >> Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited
(BSNL) has managed to restore its mobile phone service in some areas
here. BSNL chief general manager Mishi Nath
Gupta told TheHindu over phone from Jammu that the short
message service (SMS) service could not be restored for some time as
the machinery was completely damaged in flash floods and it would take
time to replace them.
The service was not banned in Leh prior
to the floods, he pointed out.Mr. Gupta said the mobile service was
restored in an area of two km as they managed to temporarily fix up the
machinery in its quarters, the Deputy Commissioner's office and the
Army area. Two towers were restored in that area. This was made
possible by the airlifting of the machinery by the Air Force. “We are
working very hard to restore the services, but since the road is
blocked, heavy machinery cannot be taken there so it may take longer
time to restore the landline service.” Optical fibre cable was also
damaged as roads were washed away in the floods.BSNL has sent 25 more
satellite phones to restore communication.

28th June 2010: Editorial –
BSNL rapidly heading towards
bankruptcy – reserves as on March, 11 – Minus 12559 crores – this is
the definition of bankruptcy of a commercial organization in terms of
simple financial language.
Are we aware of this simple
statistics and what it really means?
In simple terms it means the Company will
have no finances and means to pay for the monthly wages in the days to
What is the
monthly annual wage bill inclusive of pensionary provisions, leave
salary etc for employees of BSNL –
12000 crores approximately.
going to be hit – all absorbed
employees of BSNL, except ITS, and their innocent families will shortly
start bleeding because of the financial crisis that has engulfed BSNL
from all sides.
Does BSNL have any other
resources except its fixed assets of land and buildings etc. to meet
the huge expenditure on annual wages, let alone future expansion plans –
Who is responsible for present
deadly crisis - government’s total lack of will and interest
to groom BSNL as a viable commercial Company as its 100% equity holder,
frequent and uncalled for political and bureaucratic interference in
day to day business policies of the Company, a thoroughly inefficient,
unprofessional management, devoid of vision and leadership qualities,
prone to interference, and fundamentally not owing allegiance to the
Company, and trade unions/associations cutting across all
considerations and affiliations.
situation be retrieved and who can do that – At this belated
stage, when everything is virtually lost, only a
brave, spirited and determined fight and movement of the
workers can reverse the situation. Trade
unions/associations need to understand that it is meaningless to
indulge in cat races to decide who is going to be number one, two etc.
It has no relevance in the present context where workers and their
families will start experiencing worst and unbelievable financial
situations very soon. Trade unions/associations will be solely
responsible for massacring their workers if they don’t read the writing
on the wall.

18th June 2010:The case filed by some
SDEs to stay ongoing adhoc STS DPC in Hon'ble CAT Banagalore came up
for hearing on 18th June 2010 . Hon'ble CAT while declining to stay the
ongoing DPC , admitted the case and posted it for 1st JULY 2010.
18th June 2010 : Do or die
situation has descended.
DOT has asked BSNL to pay Rs 8313.78
crores as spectrum charges for BWA latest by 22nd June, 2010, in
addition to Rs 10,186 crores that it has already paid for 3G spectrum.
Does BSNL really need BWA
spectrum to provide internet/ broadband services when it has nearly 70%
unutilized copper? Is it worth for a Company reeling under severe
financial crisis to invest Rs 8313 crores on a business whose returns
as of now are negative?
Private operators having
bid for BWA spectrum for select potential circles are not going to use
it for providing Wimax services but are to wait for a year or so for
new upcoming technology Long term evolution (LTE) to provide 4 G
services on BWA spectrum once LTE is marketed in India. Besides,
private operators have already formed a strong cartel to ensure that
they do not compete with each other in potential circles to protect
their business interests and also save on their investments on payment
of spectrum charges. They have also closely followed this strategy
while auctioning of 3G spectrum. BSNL, on the other hand, has paid Rs
10,186 crores, for Pan India, more than 60% of what other leading
operators like Airtel, Vodafone, Reliance etc., have paid without
giving it any opportunity to select Circles if its business choice. In
the same manner, Govt.., without offering BSNL any choice to decide its
select Circles, has asked it to arbitrarily pay Rs 8313 crores on BWA
spectrum, more than 70% of what other leading operators like Airtel,
Vodafone, Reliance etc have paid for select Circles.
What is the way out?
BSNL should straightaway surrender BWA
spectrum even though it has invested little over 1200 crores to procure
Wimax equipment which has neither so far nor is in future going to
yield any revenues. It is in the best business interests of BSNL to
lose 1200 crores rather than squander away Rs 8400 crores by paying on
BWA spectrum and completely exhaust the reserves of BSNL.
management do it? No, no, no, not at all. It needs a thoroughly
professional and tough management full of conviction, honesty and
courage to confront administrative ministry and comprehensively defeat
its ulterior motives to land BSNL in bankruptcy. We are not going to
land in bankruptcy - we are almost bankrupt with our reserves depleting
very fast. In a day or two, CMD/BSNL will hand over on a platter
another Rs 8313 crores to DOT as BWA spectrum charges, reducing our
reserves from 36,000 crores to just about 10, 000 crores. It needs
likes of late Sh.Subhir Raha, Chairman ONGC, who defeated the efforts
of bureaucrats and politicians to make ONGC bankrupt. Our management is
just nowhere even remotely near him.
Who has to save BSNL from total
Each and every worker of BSNL
totally regardless of which Union/Association he or she belongs to has
to rise up in arms and hit back with greatest force to defeat well
planned conspiracy to sell BSNL to vested interests. We all
irrespective of where we stand have a fundamental responsibility to
safeguard our families and protect our beloved bread earner from total
disaster. We have nothing to lose. We have virtually lost everything.
So, why should we be scared of hitting out at the government with
tremendous and unparalleled courage and unwavering conviction? Why
should we create a painful and pathetic situation where we tell our
Children that we were cowards not to struggle and be able to protect
our jobs, Company and their future? Whether we succeed or not is an
entirely different matter - let us not helplessly watch losing our
bread and butter but give a lasting fight till our last breath that
posterity remembers as truly historical. This is our humble appeal to
every one whose livelihood and the future of family is dependent
exclusively on health of BSNL. All our internal scores we can settle
once we primarily emerge successful in protecting our beloved Company
from getting sunk to the bottom in the deep waters. Let us first create
a situation where we can subsequently settle our internal tussles.
June 2010THE HINDU
reports - 2G spectrum: removal of senior officials sought -
These officers cited
as chief architects of the mechanism for allocation of spectrum
“makes a mockery of the efforts to get to the crux of the matter”
continuance of these officers in the sensitive positions they held
while finalising highly controversial first-cum-first-served criteria
for allocation raises very fundamental and pertinent issue of the bona
fides of the administrative ministry of allowing the investigating
agency to reach an impartial and transparent conclusion.
absence of even a very preliminary action of not transferring the
officers sounds ridiculous and virtually makes a mockery of the efforts
of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to get to the crux of the matter,”
SNEA (I) general secretary G.L. Jogi told The Hindu.
2010: THE HINDU reports -
BSNL forced to pay more spectrum charges - “It is a serious
issue… while we are being forced to pay despite financial difficulties,
private operators are making merry. We are writing to the Telecom
Secretary to exempt us also from the hike order or we, as principal
stakeholders in the company, will move court seeking relief and refund
of the amount so far. If the department cannot take legal action, we
certainly can do so,” said Sanchar Nigam Executives Association (India)
general secretary G.L. Jogi.
Association writes to Hon'ble MOC, Shri A.Raja requesting him to
immediately disband committee under the Chairmanship of Member(T),
Telecom Commission to decide procurement of GSM equipment that
BSNL needs for expansion. Association pleads that BSNL board be
given complete freedom to decide commercial and business policies to
allow it to compete fierce competition. <<Letter>>
Association writes to Secretary DOT, Shri P.J.Thomas demanding to
immediately transfer officers involved in implementation of licensing
policy of DOT for their discriminatory and highly prejudiced stand to
levy exorbitant licence/spectrum charges from BSNL, giving tremendous
relaxation to private operators. These officers are already under cloud
for being involved in finalising highly controversial criteria of first
cum first serve for allocation of 2G spectrum which is being probed by
CBI and against which a charge sheet has been filed. Having developed
unhloy nexus with private operators, these officers are inflicting huge
damage on the business interests of BSNL. .<<Letter>>

for over two hours with Director(HR) regarding very complex issues of
stalemated DGM and MT recruitment. GM(P), GM(SR) and GM(Rect) were also
present. After extensive discussions and exploring various options to
expeditiously complete the process of recruitment of DGMs and MTs so as
to build a talented and young middle level management in BSNL to take

was total participation of Comrades in the strike through out TN
Circle. Strike called off following a meeting with MOC. Thanks
1. Indefinite strike w.e.f
20.04.10: SNEA(I) to take a leading role in organising the indefinite
strike w.e.f 20.04.10 at Circle / SSA and local level under the banner
of JAC to settle the entire charter of demands including very crucial
issue of immediate completion of ITS absorption.
2. Sam Pitroda Committee
recommendations: The recommendations of the committee regarding change
of leadership and induction of professionals from outside at the board
level were wholeheartedly supported. Recommendations relating to
adoption of “Managed capacity” and “Managed Services”
models in BSNL require a comprehensive study before expressing our
final view. VRS, disinvestment, unbundling of last mile copper and
outsourcing have to be opposed tooth and nail. Recommendation of the
committee on completion of ITS absorption in a time bound manner to be
3. Revival of BSNL: SNEA(I) should
be seen as agents and leaders of change in enforcing and implementing
sweeping reforms on each and every front. For successful implementation
of reforms and their results, it is absolutely necessary to resolve ITS
absorption. Any attempt to introduce innovative reforms on procurement
policy, HR front, streamlining the whole organization and giving it an
entirely new facelift will be futile if unabsorbed ITS officers are
asked to oversee implementation of these reforms. Deciding the basic
issue of absorption of ITS in BSNL is going to be the key to successful
implementation of any new future road map for revival of
4. Regularisation of Adhoc STS: CWC
unanimously resolved for immediate regular promotion to 2500 STS posts,
regardless of whether or not to include 270 competitive adhoc STS. In
the meantime, it was decided to get impleaded in Hon’ble High Court of
Ernakulam to oppose fixation of seniority and promotion of 147 SDEs to
adhoc STS, besides continuing contesting seniority fixation of 270
adhoc STS in Hon’ble Supreme Court.
5. Amendments to BSNL MS R/Rs: The
following amendments are to be made in the BSNL MS R/R: a) The basic
spirit of R/Rs should be to have uniformity in all disciplines and the
R/R provision for Civil / Elect wing has to be modified accordingly. b)
The no. of posts to be filled up in JAG cadre should be in the ratio of
50:50 for direct and promotee streams. c) Since bench mark and
selection method for Adhoc and Regular promotion to STS is one and the
same, adhoc STS Officers should become regular as soon as vacancy
arises in regular STS without any further DPC. The adhoc service also
should be counted as regular service for all purposes. d) Future
promotions in STS and JAG should be regular and not adhoc. e) Change of
designation has to take place along with time bound financial
6. Pay scales of JTO, SDE and
equivalent cadres: BSNL Board approved the E1A and E2A pay scales for
JTO and SDE along with other pay scales and these pay scales are
pending at DoT for approval. Association shall pursue the matter with
DoT /DPE for early approval.
7. Membership verification: The CWC
resolved that SNEA(I) should independently go in for membership
verification and the discrepancies pointed out by UF with
reference to committee’s report should be addressed prior to starting
8. Merger of Executives’ Associations:
The issue of merger of Executive Associations was discussed with open
& positive frame of mind. The formation of United Forum and the
achievements made by UF were highly appreciated by one and all. Taking
into account future formidable challenges, it was decided to send very
strong signals of unity to the base level for further strengthening of
United Forum of BSNL Executives. Association shall strive hard to move
in the forward direction, not in the reverse direction, in the days to
come, with regard to consolidation of unity of the two Associations
since Association has all along been a strong protagonist of school of
thought of Unity, CWC clearly opined.

General Secretary: Com. A. R. Manani, CWC member from Maharashtra
