Grand Farewell to Com.G.L.Jogi, at Ciombatore.
On 07-09-13 evening along with the Open session on Viability of BSNL, a grand felicitation function was arranged to our CHQ President Com.G.L.Jogi at Annamalai Hotel. The function was presided over by Com. Sundhara Krishnan, Circle President. Our veteran leaders Com A. Sugumaran, Ex. AGS, Com. Govindarajan, Ex. CS and Com.L.Jayapal, Ex. CS attended and shared their sweet memories with Com.Jogi and also stressed the importance and service rendered by our leaders of our association and attainment towards major issues. Com. M.Gopinathan, participated and addressed the house. Com.R.Rajan, CHQ Treasurer and Com.H.Muthu attended the felicitation function. Smt. Dr. Lalita Jogi attended the felicitation meeting and graced the occasion. The sincerity, sacrifice and dedication of Smt.Dr. Lalita Jogi was appreciated by all. Majority of Circle office bearers, District secretaries and activists of SNEA(I) / TN Circle participated in the function and felicitated Com.Jogi for his tireless service.
Shri.Porpathasekaran, Addl GM / Coimbatore SSA participated in the open session and function. He informed that, as for as cadre aspect is considered, a lot of improvement already took place. Dedication and involvement is missing. Technology changes are taking place; we have to cope up with that. Marketing should be done by all, not by a group of people. By team work we can achieve our goal.
Com.K.Sebastin, GS informed that we are the only PAN India operator providing all sort of telecom services, but we are behind private operators in market share. Though 13 years passed after the formation of BSNL, still our attitude and work culture not yet changed as per requirement. Last month, nearly eight circles got salary payment not in the last day of the month. We should treat this as a wake up call for all of us. Now we are discussing about revival of BSNL, if we are not coming out of our inherited DOT style mindset, we will be forced to discuss about the survival of BSNL. We have to self introspect ourselves. Both preventive and corrective actions should take place at all levels for the viability of BSNL. . He appealed all the executives to take self initiatives for maintaining the quality of service and also retaining customer base by utilizing all available resources in our hand.
Com. Jogi, CHQ president, in his address stressed that addition of new customers in BSNL is not happening as per telecom industry achievement. We have to analyse why existing customers are going out? Attitude and mindset of employees to be changed from the erstwhile DOT era. Company needs structural changes, management is bringing structural changes for their own interest. Though ITS are expertised and exposed, they are having the capacity of leading, but we lost our confidence on them since they are not part of the company. New National telecom policies were introduced especially to support the private operators. The policy was tweaked and private operators were given financial benefits. At the same time though BSNL and MTNL has art of technology, they were not allowed to enter mobile services. Though there is provision in the NTP in the name of ADC, USOF etc we were not compensated. Indian telegraph act was amended in the interest of private operators. Through struggle independently and also under the banner JAC, UF etc. we achieved a lot. Com.G.L. Jogi, expressed sincere thanks to comrades and activists of Tamilnadu circle and also appealed all comrades to concentrate on development issues and growth of BSNL.
The Meeting ended with vote of thanks by Com.V.Jayaraman Circle Finance secretary. View Photos

Meeting with CMD/BSNL: GS, President and AGSs Com Arvind Pal Dahiya and Com V M Wankhade met Sri R K Upadhyay, CMD/BSNL on 20.08.2013 and held discussions on the following issues.
At the outset, CMD/BSNL cautioned us that BSNL is heading towards payment crisis and in the near future, it may not be able to pay the salaries in time because cash receipts are getting less than expenditure including salaries. The cash inflow has come down drastically in the previous months and BSNL is not having adequate cash and is finding it difficult to pay salaries in time. CMD categorically stated that time is not far off when the Company will have to borrow from market to pay salaries. If Assns/Unions are not understanding this hard ground reality and making serious efforts to generate more revenues, in future Assns/Unions may be forced to go for agitations to demand payment of salary in time, and in that threatening situation, towards which BSNL is approaching, other issues like pay scales, promotions, Allowances etc. get receded to the background.
Comrades, the situation is truly very very grave, as we have been repeatedly apprising our comrades and it is high time for us to wake up and act collectively with unprecedented commitment and determination to respond to fast emerging crisis by contributing towards growth in high end business, drastically improving the work culture and increasing revenue generation.
We cannot afford to be complacent and ignore the timely warning of the Chief Executive of the company. As a very responsible Association, we have to seriously engage ourselves towards facing the threatening crisis that is slowly but surely building up and this is the assurance we have given to CMD on behalf of rank and file of this Association. Umpteen assurances we have given in this context so far.The real challenge before us now is to translate our assurances into action so that meaningful and positive results are achieved in near future. Let us get down to this daunting uphill task of addressing key issues of poor growth and quality of service to save our beloved Company from collapsing with greatest determination and sense of responsibility so that we are not faced with a situation where we have to struggle to get our salaries, forgetting our career growth and other legitimate incentives. This is our humble, honest and impassioned appeal to our beloved Comrades throughout the Country and we are confident that they will positively and proactively respond to the threatening crisis that is brewing up slowly but surely.
Discussion on following issues:
i) Resolution of issue of standard E2, E3 etc IDA pay scales and Time Bound Functional promotion etc:
Assn brought to the notice of the CMD that the Joint Committee was constituted by competent authority on 28.02.2012 to gave appropriate recommendations in six months for quick resolution of these issues since delay in resolving them is adversely affecting the morale and motivation of young workforce in the Company. However because of gross indiscipline and lack of responsibility, the committee meetings were not held, thus raising a big question about the functioning of the mechanisms in BSNL to address the issues. CMD assured that the issues will be extensively deliberated and examined by the joint committee at the earliest and depending upon the recommendations of the committee, decisions would be taken. CMD assured he will personally monitor the progress of the discussions in the joint committee meetings.
ii) Abolishing the existing mechanism of Adhoc promotions from TES Gr B to STS and replacing it by mechanism of regular promotions:
We explained the present Adhoc promotion concept from TES Gr B to STS in BSNL is unwarranted in the context of finalization of BSNL MS RRs and Association has been consistently pleading to end Adhocism and replace it by regular mechanism for promotions from TES Gr B to STS. We explained at length the futility and obsolescence of Adhoc promotions. Neither seniority nor service is getting counted in Adhoc promotion, we apprised CMD. We suggested Management consider earmarking fixed number of say 600 to 800 from STS posts for MTs, and fill up the remaining STS posts on regular basis. After detailed discussion and appreciating the need to abolish existing adhoc promotion mechanism, CMD categoricaaly assured that Management would consider earmarking 1000 STS posts for MTs, and remaining STS posts will be filled on regular basis and that no Adhoc DE promotion takes place in the future. Immediately CMD directed Sr GM (Pers) to take immediate necessary action towards incorporating appropriate amendments in BSNLMS RRs to abolish Adhoc promotions and fill up remaining STS posts on regular basis. Association has been demanding for a long time to end existing obsolete Adhocism for and replace it by regular mechanism. We are extremely thankful to CMD/BSNL for appreciating our view point and agreeing to make suitable amendments in BSNL MS RRs as early as possible. This will give a great career break through.
iii) DE to DGM(Adhoc) promotion for the remaining JAG vacancies. More than 350 DGM posts are vacant as on today, we informed CMD and there is acute shortage of JAG officers in the field units. Already, large no of DEs, having more than 3 years of service, are available and eligible for adhoc JAG promotion. We requested CMD to take direct concerned officers to take necessary action to promote DEs to DGM on Adhoc basis and also requested him that adhoc service rendered in DE cadre be counted for the purpose of eligibility to JAG promotion. CMD assured that he would examine the issue and discuss it with concerned officers of HR wing.
iv) Immediate recruitment of MTs from among the Intl candidates till the implementation of Time Bound Functional promotion mechanism.
CMD informed that Mgt already taken actions to recruit MTs from among internal candidates. Our suggestion to include BE (Mechanical/Radio Engg) as educational qualification to appear in MT examination is also approved by the Mgt. Initially the rect. will be for 150 MT posts for Intl quota and recruitment cell has been directed to take quick action to conduct examination to fill up 150 MT posts from Intl quota.
Very fruitful discussions took place and we thanked CMD for responding very positively to our concerns of career growth and reiterated our assurance and commitment that the rank and file of this Association will respond to his serious and justified concern of fast declining revenues with total determination and will leave no stone unturned to tide over the emerging crisis that the company is facing.
