ADVERSE COMMENTS BY CGM MP
On 6th March 2014, CGM MP Telecom Circle Sh N K Yadav has made some adverse comments openly against the CHQ leadership of AIGETOA in the development meeting held at Indore. DPE has ordered 30% superannuation benefit to CPSE’s executives and many CPSEs have already implemented the same but, he has also told that “even god can not extend superannuation benefit to executives working in any PSU”. He has acted as Judge and gave his ruling that pension is given only in government Deptt and PSUs don’t create superannuation funds for pension. He said that it is AIGETOA CHQ leaders who have unnecessary put up this issue and they don’t have any knowledge. He has appealed direct recruits in open meeting where all the executives of Indore region were present, to immediately expel the CHQ leaders and make some retired employee as leader of AIGETOA. He has also warned that no circle will give any privilege to AIGETOA if same leadership continues and association will be finished. We really salute the knowledge level of Hon’ble CGM MP and request him to just go through Internet and search whether the PSUs are offering the pension or not.
Referendum rule of association verification is already issued and referendum process is on. Such bad remark against AIGETOA leadership in open meeting is not at all expected from any circle head and the reasons for doing this negative publicity against this association will have to be explained by CGM MP. It is very much clear that CGM MP is singing in the same tune in which our friendly association sings to all direct recruits which gives us all reasons to believe that he is acting as virtual spokesperson of such elements. CHQ AIGETOA has sought apology against such bad remarks by the CGM for which CGM has refused. CGM MP Telecom circle has been acting vindictive against direct recruits of MP. Circle since some time back. He has taken personal interest in salary cut and followed all the SSA heads telephonically to cut the salary. Under pressure of CGM, all SSA head have cut the salary without even following the basic guidelines and rules. After long strike by AIGETOA in the month of July-Aug-2013, corporate office has issued order for online transfer of EPF and directed CGMs to purchase digital signature but the same CGM could not ensure this and no letters/DO/Verbal orders to any SSA head was ever issued as the same was beneficial to the Direct Recruits. The swiftness with which CGM acts on the BSNL CO orders for salary cut turns into lethargy when the same BSNL CO issues any order in the interest of DRs. He has issued vindictive transfer order of our All India President, helped in serving the charge sheets for raising the voice against wrongful acts in transfer and posting of direct recruits. He has also threatened direct recruits to see in the future transfer and posting.
Enough is now enough; AIGETOA MP Telecom Circle has decided for peaceful protest against such act of CGM MP. Telecom Circle. All members of Bhopal are requested to gather at Circle Office Bhopal at 1:00 pm on 07/03/2014. CGM has to apologize for his unsolicited comments against CHQ leaders, he has to refund salary immediately which has been cut without following any rules, he has to immediately order for purchase of digital signature for online EPF transfer, CGM MP will have to explain under what rule the salary has been cut based on mere absentee statement, CGM MP has to explain whether the salary of executives are being prepared on the basis of absentee statement and if so whether every month’s absentee statement for all executives right from top to bottom is being sent to DDOs, CGM MP will have to explain the motive behind bringing all the Direct recruits on road with such type of irrational salary cut, CGM MP will have to explain whether this blatant violation of rules while cutting the salary has resulted into fixing the responsibilities for the lapses, CGM MP has to explain the reasons behind not endorsing the No Work No Pay orders of BSNL CO for the Dharna Call on 6th March by our very friendly association, CGM MP will have to explain why he has interfered into internal working of any association and for whose benefit etc. The Questions are many and we will try to get all the answers.
Friends!! Now it’s high time to prove that such type of vindictive actions will not dent the membership base of AIGETOA. It’s high time to prove that even high profile spokes persons cannot win even a single membership for our adversaries. We will have to prove that all the bad objects in the path of the DRs shall be dealt like that only so that it may act as deterrent to others also.

Meeting with SEC(DOT) and HLC
On 21st Feb-2014 President Sh R P Shahu along with VP Sh Abhishek Choudhary and Sh Pransant Gaurav met Secretary DOT Sh M.F. Farooqui. The Meeting lasted for around 20 minutes. All the issues in respect of direct recruits were explained in detail and requested to consider the welfare of around 12000 executives and 20000 non-executives, directly recruited by BSNL also while taking any policy decision. Secretary (DoT) assured to look into the issues and direct the BSNL management to resolve the issues on merit. Secretary (DoT) also advised us to not to adopt the path of agitation as company is passing through a tough and critical situation. He advised to resolve the genuine grievances through amicable means. We explained to Secretary DoT that the direct recruits are covered with certain deferent sets of benefits but they are not being offered formal platform so that issues can be resolved on merit. The continued ignorance and apathy forces us to adopt the path of agitation. Secretary DOT conveyed that although he would not like to interfere in day to day working of BSNL but he will definitely convey BSNL management to take up the issues of direct recruits on priority basis.
After meeting with Secretary DOT, representatives met Addl Secretary Smt Rita teaotia who is directly looking into the various issues of BSNL. She spared sufficient time of about 40 minutes for us where each and every issue was discussed in detail. She was quite convinced with our submission on every issue and assured us to look into the issues for early resolution.
In the meanwhile GS shri Ravi Shil Verma along with AGS Amit Roy, CS HP Shri Ajit Kumar and CP HP Shri Chander Singh met the members of the Higher Level Committee in the chamber of the ED (finance) where 1st meeting of the HLC was being convened. GS explained the committee members regarding both the issues in detail, the reasons for the unrest amongst the direct recruits, the expectations from the committee members, the DPE guidelines those are being ignored for direct recruits and the situation that other set of executives and non-executives have been given their dues without bothering for financial implications. The Higher Level Committee has called us for a formal presentation over the issues on Thursday, the 27th February 2014.
In view of positive outcome and firm assurance in today’s meeting held with Director (HR) AIGETOA CHQ has decided to defer the ongoing agitational program. Members are requested to resume their duties from 21st Feb-2014. Click here for Agitation Deferment Letter

Latest Updates on AIGETOA Fight of Right :
On 17th Feb 2014, a meeting was held between representatives of AIGETOA and BSNL management in front of Committee of Public Undertaking (COPU) at Parliament New Delhi. From Association side GS Sh Ravishil Verma, President Sh R P Shahu, AGS Sh Amit Roy and Executive Member Sh Durgesh were present. From Management Side CMD, Director (HR), GM (SR), GM (Restructuring), GM (EF), GM (Establishment) etc were present. All the MPs who are the members of COPU were present and the meeting was chaired by Sh Jagdambika Pal Chairman of COPU. Meeting lasted for more than 2 hours.
In the aforesaid meeting, we have conveyed our grievances in detail and CMD BSNL has defended the stand taken by BSNL management. Sh Pal appreciated the contribution of professionally qualified direct recruits of BSNL in serving the nation. Chairman of COPU and MP Sh Jagdambika Pal clearly instructed CMD BSNL to reconsider our issues and resolve them on merit without getting into financial implications. CMD BSNL has acknowledged the same and agreed to reconsider. All these developments are under intimation to Honourable MOC Sh Kapil Sibal and UPA Chair Person Mrs Sonia Gandhi.
It is learnt that CMD BSNL has instructed the concerned GMs to give proper feedback on the issues raised by AIGETOA so that decision can be taken on merit.
Dear member, we know that issues raised by AIGETOA are not our demands but are the basic entitlements. We are very much sure that our all the issues will be resolved on merit. This association has decided to not leave protest at corporate office but to intensify our protest hence all direct recruits are requested to please give at least 2 days for your issues. BSNL management is still conveying that small group of direct recruits are on agitation which is big hurdle on the way of success. Please ensure that every direct recruit from nook and corner must remain on leave at least till 21st Feb-2014 and 100% member must reach Delhi on 20th Feb-2014. Those who have not applied EL so for must immediately apply EL. The maximum strength of the DRs for two days at Delhi i.e. on 20th and 21st Feb-2014 will take us to the path of resolution.
It is learnt that some circle and district representatives are not putting their efforts and are also not conveying proper information. Members should not fall prey to the false rumour spread by some negative elements. It is only your support which can take us to get our rights. Your small ignorance can take you away from your rights. This association has shown our strong resentment and created lot of pressure on BSNL management. This pressure should not be released in coming days.
Just Remember: Together we will !!! !!!
Just Follow: Delhi Chalo !!! !!! Delhi Chalo !!! !!!
Glimpses of Hunger Fast ended by DIR(HR)
Glimpses of Indefinite Hunger Fast ended by Director(HR) on Day-3 14th Feb 2014 at CMD BSNL Office which started on 12th Feb 2014 at Jantar Mantar by five audacious Direct Recruits under the leadership of Shri R P Shahu. Click here
DELHI CHALO !!!!!!
As you know our fight has reached to the point from where we can see our destination. This association is fighting for nothing but for our very basic rights of Pay, career and retiral benefit. Various issues this association has raised are nothing but simply the implementation of orders issued by government of India and DPE. These orders have not been implemented just because of vested interests in BSNL and as the management and absorbed executives are covered with different terms and conditions.
Direct Recruits JTO/JAOs are recruited with minimum qualification of engineering/professionals in accounting. As per the cabinet order executives working on same sectors cannot be given different pay scale. BSNL has given E1A pay scale to JTO/JAO which was less than MTNL (E2) just to extend the government pension for which BSNL is contributing in respect of absorbed executives. Government pension is not extended to direct recruits of BSNL hence pay scale of direct recruits of BSNL is already E2. Now after sixth pay commission and order of government of India, DOT has upgraded JTOs recruited with minimum qualification of engineering from Rs 6500 to Rs 7450 which is equivalent to E3 in BSNL/MTNL. BSNL has already issued order for upgradation from Rs. 6500 to Rs.7450 in respect of JTO working on deputation from DoT in BSNL. There is no question of degradation of JTO/JAO cadre in BSNL further from E1A to E1. JTO/JAOs, who have been recruited with minimum professional qualification, must be further upgraded to E3 in BSNL. Direct Recruit JTO and JAOs are the Management Trainee in Operation and Finance respectively as recommended by first PRC. BSNL can recruit MBA candidate in the name of management trainee in HR, sales & marketing but at the similar level as that of JTO/JAOs.
Similarly DPE has issued order for pay revision from 01.01.2007. The motto and sprit of pay revision is to enhance the financial benefits of executives in accordance with economic and social status of the country. JTO cadre is already existing in BSNL hence all the JTOs recruited between 01.01.2007 to 01.01.2017 must also be given benefit of the pay revision as of JTO recruited prior 01.01.2007. Definitely 30% fitment benefit cannot be extended but there are other ways to extend the benefit of pay revision in the line other CPSEs have extended.
30% superannuation benefit for CPSE executives is mandatory for those CPSEs which have already extended 30% fitment benefit hence BSNL management has no right to lessen our superannuation benefit.
There are various such issues of direct recruit’s executives which are nothing but our legitimate rights. We have already followed all the amicable ways since last 6-7 years. Various committees are formed but have either remained indecisive or evasive. Our top management including CMD BSNL has appreciated the genuineness of the issues but has failed to resolve. Now we are forced to intensify our struggle beyond the amicable ways.
This association has already started the struggle to take it to the apex of this company i.e. Minister of communication and IT. Yesterday all of us, who have gathered at Delhi, entered into the reception of CMD BSNL to show the resentment and demanded open arguments on the issue. Ultimately after intervention of MOC on telephone, BSNL management has agreed to have a discussion on the issues on Monday for final resolution. After his request, all five members who were sitting on hunger fast since last three days, ended the hunger fast by Director(HR) Sh A.N.Rai. But at the same time association has decided to continue our protest in the form of mass Dharna inside the premise of BSNL Corporate office till the resolution of all our issues, which has been agreed by BSNL management.

Now, we are very near to resolution of our issues hence all members are requested to reach BSNL CO by early morning of Monday i.e. 17.02.2014 without fail. Nobody shall attend the office till the resolution of our issues.
