Senior leaders comrades Natarajan, RamanKutty, D gopalakrishnan delivered speeches and clarified issues. Our leaders Com SSG, Roberts,Sethu,Subbarayan, Rengan,Semmal, sundarrajan all available in the session. Comrades Ramarao, Muthiyalu, Gows Batcha were elected as President, Secretary and Treasurer.

  • 26-8-16 PLI Meeting of Aug 24th.. As per Com SSG's(Secy Fed) Report Management repeated the same proposal of one Rupee- One Crore placed in March 30th Meeting ( Kindly see the detail in Com Sridhar's Article in Ap 2016 Olikkathir). The MOU ratings agreed by both DOT_BSNL for 14-15 were Execellent-31395 cr, VG-29900, Good 28405 cr, Fair 26985 cr, poor 25636 cr. But the audited Revenue was 28645 cr which one was 240 cr higher than Good, 1660 with Fair and 3009 comparing poor. The Audited rev for 15-16 is yet to see light. The question is linking PLI with rev target. Hope both the Unions would settle things and restore the right of bonus/PLI without any further controversy.

  • 12-8-16 The next major issue on staff welfare is restoration of right of getting PLI/Bonus. It has been accepted to delink from profit. But Management is linking with DOT MOU Revenue targets. For the crores you are earning over and above Good is considered for . They are saying one rupee for one crore. If you want to get 7000, one should ask 30 rupees for every crore. Are we accepting the revenue linked approach of Management.. if not what is our alternate solution. Earlier when NFTE demanding to finalise first minimum, other union advised us not to press that now, allow to finalise the formula. Now that issue is not there. Both unions demanding minimum first as finalisation of formula is not in sight. For 14-15 NFTE demanded adhoc.. GOI paid Rs 3500 to its employees and the enhanced Rs 7000 was not settled to postal or Railways. For 15-16 GOI should give Non PLB Rs 7000 and PLB on that basis.

  • 6-7-16 The long pending issue of 78.2 for pensioners got its cabinet approval on 5th July. We have to appreciate the efforts of pensioners association, Executive Associations and Unions.
    This one is considered by the cabinet as ‘pension revision’ with actual benefit from 10-6-13 having notional effect from 1-1-07. It should be called only pension refixation based on 78.2 instead of the wrong fixation on 68.8. This decision may weaken our cause of getting arrears from 1-1-07 having conditionality of financial improvement of BSNL.
    The second thing is about the question of 15-6-2006 letter as per the earlier cabinet decision restricting Govt's liability to the extent of 60 % of LF, SC etc. The PIB release says in the first para Modifying the liability of BSNL towards the payment of pensionary benefits.. We have to check what kind of Modification?
    In the third para this has been stated as "In respect of employees who are absorbed in BSNL, the liability on account of pensionary benefits shall be fully borne by Government while BSNL will continue to discharge pension liability by way of pension contribution in accordance with FR-116 for the period they so work/worked. ". Whether this means that the effect of earlier cabinet decision operative thro 15-6-2006 is nullified? These points we have to check and confirm. We need orders of DOT for 78.2 and withdrawal of 15-6-2006 letter. Another worrying aspect is that the decision of cabinet 5th July may weaken the good demand of pensioners association that the 7th CPC should be implemented by DOT to BSNL pensioners also on IDA. This may warrant long protracted struggle of Pensioners Associations and unions

  • 12-6-16 Resoultion for 2nd PRC headed by Justice M J Rao was issued on 30th Nov 2006 last time with TOF and 18 months stipulated time. Policy for 7th round of Wage Negotiations for Unionised workers issued earlier than that 2nd PRC on 9th NOV 2006 itself.

    This time there was some pressure amongst Exceutive Unions (though divided some - High Profit Earning monopoly PSUs for No More Pay committees and some even loss making having hyper competition for3rd PRC). GOI/DPE after much dillydallying finally issued its Resoultion on June 9th 2016 for 3rd PRC chaired by Justice Satish Chandra with TOF and 6 months stipulated time.

    Unfortunately there has been no pressure from any Non Executive Unions from any industry to issue guidelines for 8th Round of wage negotiations for Unionised workers. Unless this one is issued, the industries that are having agreement for 10 years periodicity will not have their Bilateral wage negotiating Bodies to negotiate with the management. However after Satish Chandra' s report only things will get its heat in the Non Executive side. Most probably the dotted lines of accepted recommendations of Satish chandra report  will be followed by PSUs. In our case, our periodicity is coterminous with Executives and moreover our case is linked with Govt pension. This time our first task should be to demand DPE to issue guidelines for 8th Round of Talks. Second task is to pressure BSNL management to constitute proper Bilateral Wage negotiating Body- again underline Bilateral not mere Officers committee- CMD should constitute Bilateral committee of both Officers and Unions. Third task is both Recognised Unions should ensure that the Bilateral body is a broad representative body of most of our Non Executive Unions. Fourth task is that we should move every step with broader consensus. Hope better sense prevail everywhere by not pooh poohing our suggestions

  • 19-5-16 The Empowered Committee of Govt Secretaries headed by Cabinet Secretary reviewing 7th CPC recommendations may submit its report by June 2016 and cabinet approval will be sought for the same to issue orders by July. It is learnt that PMO has advised for the increase of Minimum from the recommended 18000 to 21000 .. we don't know whether that multiplication factor 3 is applicable for pay fixation. DPE is yet to issue any guidelines for Executives' 3rd PRC. In BSNL 2007 Non Executive wage Revision Agreement is tied down with the periodicity of Executives. DPE is yet to issue guidelines for 8th Round of bilateral negotiations with the PSU Unions. If it is issued then BSNL should form Wage negotiating Committee. This time we should fight for the real Bilateral committee instead of mere Officers committee that call Unions to discuss. Unions should be empowered to get members in the BSNL wage Negotiating Committee which one will be appointed by CMD BSNL. We should not be mere invitees to discuss, we should be the joint members of the Committee. we are noting this as a precaution.

  • 9-4-16 BSNLEU reports that DIR HR assured 'No Bonus before 7th Verification' and inturn BSNLEU assures No Further agitation but withdrawal of cooperation stands. There is no inference or any elaboration to its members what does withdrawal of cooperation mean. We know the Gandhian method of Non Cooperation and NFTE -com O P Gupta announced many times Non Cooperation as a form of struggle at ground level and Indefinite Fast at Circle and All India level. Many of our comrades were victimised and got increment Cuts on those Non Cooperation agitation. We have yet to know about the new form of announcement of BSNLEU that there will not be any agitation because of the DIR HR's Assurance of NO PLI till 7th membership Verification but total withdrawal of Cooperation. Let us wait and see how BSNLEU exhibits its novel withdrawal of cooperation at the same time it is not a form of agitation. Let us hope let it not be withdrawal of cooperation on employees issues like DR pension , PLI issues.

  • 1-4-16   April Fool DaY : Not only Management, BSNLEU is also fooling workers.. inorder to save their skin demonstration call is given now to end the show. BSNLEU is not having any feeling of guilty for its absence in the PLI committee meeting, the proper negotiating table. It fails to report to the employees on what basis it shaped the negotiation when it attended that meeting in the earlier occasion and why and on what basis management is offering the PLI whether meager or sufficient.. Where BSNLEU differs ‘only on quantum or on the modality of calculation’. If you are accepting the modality of calculation, how you want to increase the meager quantum to respectable quantum.. After demonstration what.. are you going to permanently boycott the PLI committee till the elections are over and thereby getting asylum on NFTE bashing. Why BSNLEU avoiding negotiation when management called the union to the committee.. Why now only so hurriedly demonstration keeping silence in the entire Deepavali period.. In the demonstration as usual you all blame NFTE calling names low quotation etc unfortunately BSNLEU never have any quotation on its own name.. Wage Revision on Executive's quotation, NEPP on Shri Raja's- management's quotation..  BSNLEU is fooling workers by its gimmick of namesake protests and it has no tradition or mindset to protect workers and settle things.. It is interested  to play always a spoilers role and  it is habituated to act in that role also.. Our timely caution is Beware of BSNLEU  which  is  holding demonstration  not to blame management or to get any respectable PLI before election just to blame NFTE and divide – reduce the collective bargaining and cash some more votes

    16-12-15 Opinion Leaders Meet- Com P Chennekesavan's circular

    13-12-15 Telecom live in its December issue has published one special idiotic article about BSNL emitting its total prejudice. It tries to expose the present Management of BSNL for the claims of growth and operational profit and tries to establish that BSNL attained operational loss in real accounting without knowing the factual things about the history of Govt notional loan and its waiver, bad debt provision, Leave encashment etc. We expect that the corporate management should give its rebuttal about the  P-L financial statement. The other issue raised by Telecom Live is about BSNL-Reliance Jio ICR. BSNL management should clarify our Union Leaders that the agreement is not disadvantageous to BSNL

    But a real grievance is there that BSNL is yet to publish its Annual Report   of 14-15/Financial statement in public domain even by December. Such kind of indifference is unfair. Most of the companies are doing the same by may/June itself.

    19-2-15 It is most unfortunate that the Corporate Office not imbibing the spirit of our discussion in the national council about Framing Business and conducting Rules for Councils, on the analogy of Central Govt JCM,  has sent to unions a new set of rules viz JCM BSNL Rules 2014. Only a sick and perverted mind alone can do that kind of mischievous. The unions with their collective efforts brought Recognition- Representation in Councils rules 2012. For recognition one should need minimum 15% provided that no one should get 50 % and above. But for Councils, in order to have broad representation, it is enough to have 7% to get a seat on the basis of proportional representation. The present draft by that sick mind wants to derail the same and collapse broader representation in the Collective bargaining system. We request the staff side to fight out this evil design and insist to bring proper guidelines for implementing the Business of Councils.

  • 12-12-14 As per the DPE Guidelines the Government Director should identify himself with the objects and goals of the enterprise, engage in joint thinking on equal terms and not assume a superior status. He should not reserve his position on matters before the Board. However, others on the Board should not expect him to commit the Government in respect of matters, which require to be referred to the Government. In all subsequent examination of the Board approved proposals, his role should be mainly elucidatory and he should not sit in judgement over the Board. Unfortunately the autonomy of BSNL in deciding its own RR (JTO RR 2014) is still pending at Board level because of adamancy of Govt Directors(as we come to know ). This attitude is not helpful with the objects of the company.Let us fight the Govt babudom stalling our progress

  • 7-11-14 DOT pension Budget Estimate (on the heads of pension) for 14-15 shows separate accounting estimates for CDA pension, BSNL IDA pension. Though MTNL IDA pension is also placed accounting estimate is yet to be given for MTNL. For CDA the estimates are : For Pension 1373.1388 cr, For FP 282.4667 cr, Commutation 401.5935, Gratuity 527.4047. For BSNL IDA pension the estimates are: Pension 2008.8512 cr, FP 413.2353 cr, Commutation 587.5165 cr, Gratuity 771.7053 cr... Total Retirement benefits commitment of DOT is estimated as 6386 cr barring MTNL. The consistent efforts of our CHQ thro BSNL and DOT and pondichery Kamaraj thro RTI questions compelled DOT to furnish separate accounts for CDA and IDA. At the same time We should understand the danger also. This estimate indicates that we have to face rough weather when we enter wage negotiation and subsequent pension revision. Even if we realise pension contribution on actual pay by BSNL, that may reduce only the burden of BSNL not the burden of pension . The most important aspect is how to make all our BSNL IDA pensioners as a part of central govt pensioners and joinning the mainstream pensioners inorder to get rid of the question of burden and to avoid the ordeal of any future pension revision.

  •  1-10-2014 Thanks to all the comrades who participated 2 hours Walk out to obey the call of trade unions.. Strike struggle is to impress upon the management that workers are in somber mood as even denial of some Bonus on the Festive Occasion.. It is upto the workers to decide what amount of trade unionism that they need to realise their demands.. Leaders can easily realise the genuineness of the demands and able to gauge the mood of management by their frequent interaction and experience. When we fail to impress upon employees about the genuineness of demands and fail to make them to feel that strike is the only option to express their anger to seek justice, then the movement gets its retardation. The indifference of workers to their own demands is more dangerous than the indifference of any management

  • 30-9-14 For the Kind attention of Our leaders in SSA: Inform us if any Compulsory retirement Case in any cadre Executive or Non Executive.. If any information about their Pension settlement..

    Kindly inform us what are the new duties and jobs that our traditional TTA(old Technician), SrTOA, TM (Old LM) cadres are presently doing... what are the new jobs assigned after formation of BSNL in these 14 years..

Our PH employees are discriminated comparing rest of CG PH Employees. As per DOE the minimum rate should be Rs 2000 (1000+ DA 1000). Our increased minimum is also only from prospective date.. This one is another discrimination.. BSNL should not be so frugal in social nature of issues like this.. The added expenditure because of this new order may be just 2 to 2.5 lakhs per month.. if the same is given  2000 minimum  as per DOE order then, the expenditure may not be more than 4  to 5 lakhs.  As BSNL is not linking DA factor, it would be only fixed till the next revision. Comparing BSNL, it seems that Department of Expenditure is more humane

    We are having hundreds of Cases  promoted before 1-10-2000 and opted fixation on their date of increment falling after 1-10-2000. Though belatedly by 2006 DOT approved with illustrations, subsequently it was denied on the grounds that the employees lost their Govt status.. Our efforts yet to give any break through

    BSNLEU Reporting on JAC meet with Director HR
    22. Option to the Non-Executives, for fixation of pay on promotion, on the date of next
    increment which fell after 01-10-2000.
    This case is already referred to DoT for approval. It is likely to be approved. JAC demanded that, in the meanwhile, letter should be issued to stop the recovery. Management said that issuing of the letter is getting delayed since the ED (Finance) was on leave. JAC urged early releasing of the letter.
    There is no mention about the same in NFTE CHQ 's reporting

    ....The order issued here is for those cases to retain Old pay scales till their promotion after 1-10-2000.. In TN we are having cases those who got promotion in CDA scales before 1-10-2000 then changed to IDA sclaes on 1-10-2000 and opting their pay fixation for promotion in the changed IDA scales.. so we find some difficulty.. Unless things are sorted out with the help of DPE/DOT either by giving the case to CG National council staff side or thro all our efforts, things will not move.

    26-6-14 GPF நிதி கேட்டதைவிட மிக குறைவாக வந்துள்ளதால் நமது தோழர்கள் பலர் பாதிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளனர். அந்த கோபத்தையும் பல தோழர்கள் நம்மிடம் வெளிப்படுத்தி வருகின்றனர். என் பணத்தை தருவதற்கு கூட என்ன கேடு- சங்கத்தை மூடு என்ற வசை கூட வருகிறது.  மாநில கவுன்சிலில் விவாதிக்கப்பட்டபோது  நிர்வாகம் டெல்லியை காட்டியது. கார்ப்பரேட் நிர்வாகம் நிதியில்லை என்கிறது.  DOT- BSNL GPF உறவுகள் குறித்து கார்ப்பரேட் நிர்வாகமும், நமது CHQ தலைமையும் கூடுதல் விளக்கங்களை தெளிவை தரவேண்டியுள்ளோம். நியாயமற்ற காரணங்கள் என தெரிந்தால் நாம் போராட்டங்களில் இறங்கலாம் என்பதையும் தெரிவித்துள்ளோம்.


  • 25-6-14     PSUs should have progressive cadre oriented policy.. Unfortunately BSNL which is in dire need of Second cadre restructuring as per its marketing commercial and technical requirements is moving sluggish even on the question of Designation change. Change of RRs becomes now MOU target.  We don’t know what is the terms of ref to Deloitte.. Conservative CG departments are undergoing changes… They abolished Gr D posts and upgraded all to Gr C.   But it seems that BSNL is evincing the attitude of more loyal than the King.. Creation of Multi Tasking Staff in NE 5 scale and absorption of all RM- Gr D would solve the issue of RMs.. They may be given 2 weeks or more training to know about the multi tasking.  As in the RR of TM, provision  can be made for left out CL/TSM to get into the multi tasking cadre. We request our CHQ to take up this issue to the authority concerned.   A corrigendum may also be sought relaxing educational qualification for TM exam.

Though no automatic applicability of CG system in our PSU, we are mostly following the same in the case of Pension, GPF and Leave rules. A sort of new cadre in LM scale NE 4 scale by Grouping the posts of NE1 to NE4 may be helpful in creating MTS cadre. This idea is yet to take a concrete shape in the staff side. The idea of creation of cadre with specific RR in NE 4 would help us to solve the issue of Stagnation to some extent and may help us to seek some provision for Casual Labour to get recruited to permanent post as in the case of postal MTS RR. We hope that staff side would advance and enrich the idea and present the same to the management.

  •  A progressive judgment On the Issue of Transgender: According to the Supreme Court judgment, the transgender community will now be treated as the third gender and will be eligible for all the facilities including a voters’ ID card, passport and driving license.

    The Supreme court today asked the centre to treat the trans-gender community as ”socially and economically backward”, to enable them to get reservations in jobs and education. The Supreme Court decision came after a petition that had been filed in the court by the National Legal Services Authority, seeking equal rights for the trans-gender community. The National Legal Services Authority claimed that even hospitals have refused to admit them for treatment, which is highly unfair.

    According to the Supreme court, the government at the centre and states must put in active efforts to raise awareness on them through social welfare schemes. The court said that transgenders are citizens of the country and have equal rights to education, employment and social acceptability.

  • 20-3-14    NO  3rd  PRC?  The Second Pay Revision Committee (2nd PRC), headed by Mr. Justice M. Jagannadha Rao, retired Judge, Supreme Court   in the preface of the Report expressed:
    “A question that was repeatedly raised in our discussion with CPSEs was that 10 years are too long a period for pay revision in the public sector and that this time gap should be reduced to five years or so. Our general preference will be that once our recommendations have been given effect, the responsibility of future revision should be given to the Board of Directors of a company subject to the approval of the concerned Ministry in discharge of its role as shareholders. We would like to see that we are the last such committee for deliberating on the remuneration structure in the public sector as a whole and that hereafter no such committee will be necessary. Revision can be considered by the Board of
    Directors and the concerned Ministry as and when necessary on the basis of the
    economic situation and the nature of the concerned industry.”

Then why discrimination for BSNL alone and compelling us to continue in FR116 on the Maximum Pay.. We should also be permitted to pay our contribution as per actual pay since 1-1-06 and the remitted contribution over and above should be adjusted for future payment.. This would cause us to save some hundreds of crores and help us to find a way for the settlement of stagnation issue also..  We hope that Forum of our Unions should take serious attention on this issue  and take up the case with BSNL , DOT and MOF

  • 28-10-13: Oct 30th Fast For Bonus:

    Even American Parliament is set ready to celebrate Deepawali as a mark of respect to Indian cultural sentiments. Our BSNL Management, of course politely saying no to our claim of restoration of Bonus and would issue words of wishes. BSNL claims that their new strategy is to monetize everything to thrive on business but CMD and the remuneration Committee fails to understand our expectation to monetize our ordinary desire.. Are we so greedy to demand Bonus, that Costs not even more than 70 Crores.. Management has taken away 400 Crores in the way of MRS and 100 Cr in the name of LTC Cut and even 1000s of crores arrears of 78.2 still pending.  Even after all these, Workers are generous to contribute 18 cr to Utharakant.. Management is not reciprocating and failed to understand to gauge our sentiment of getting some bonus .. Indian ethos are not weighing things only on profit –loss basis, it is primarily based on mutual Bonds/ Bondage and one cannot  feel this  in Western type of corporate culture.

    It is not that just because NFTE is recognized, one should get Bonus. Everyone knows that NFTE has no such magical Wand to bring it thro tricks.. NFTE is dutifully demanding the Bonus, from its rightful position of Recognition. There is no bilateral agreement as on date in BSNL between Recognized Union/unions and Management on the issue of Bonus. Just some concurred DOT instructions..And BSNL orders on MOU and Profit basis for PLI.. Which one is erroneous as per DPE GUIDELINES?

    Let us echo our strong sentiment on 0ct 30th, the day of fast/ repentance.. Don’t make BSNL Employees an Outcaste in the Region of BONUS.. Let this voice be clear and louder

  • 22-10-13:

    Our CHQ leadership is trying their best to impress upon management that Bonus issue cannot be set aside and clarified that quantum need not be an issue to nullify Bonus. DPE has clarified that PLI is nothing connected with the question of Profit and well within the ceiling of perks of 50 % Basic.  As per this clarification 30 % HRA places are due with 36 % (for 2011-12 and 2012-13  18+18) of Basic,  20% HRA places employees  are due with 56% and 10 % HRA places employees are having due with 76 % of their Basic as Bonus.  No Profit mercy is needed for this.

    As per the Bonus Act, all those workmen below the basic of 10000 should be given Bonus 3500. No profit mercy is needed for this. Moreover customary Bonus is also a concept that makes us eligible as per the Bonus act, not linking profit. Airport Authorities are giving customary Bonus as Festival allowance.New formula can be evolved by discussion but getting Bonus before Deepawali is having its own urgency.All that needed is united approach and struggle to achieve our proper dues, however meager it may be.. Can we?

  •  The New Year is expected to ring in higher call rates but with little improvement in service quality. Call rates in India crashed following intense competition since 2008 in anticipation of new players entering the market. In fact, players ranked sixth or below in any service area today incur a loss on almost every customer they have on the network.
    Yet, with little or no investment capital or motivation, analysts expect companies will retain the benefits from higher pricing rather than expanding services aggressively.
