Congratulations ! Comrades of United forum of BSNL Executives
We whole heartedly congratulate comrades of United forum of BSNL Executives throughout the Country for their great
support and solidarity that alone resulted in constitution of committee in which you are actively involved to address and
resolve all the three issues raised by us i.e A) extending standard pay scales E2 and E3, B) Introduction of CPSU cadre hierarchy vis-à-vis structure of BSNL, and C)
safeguarding our existing promotional path achieved by us through intense struggle and defined by provisions of
BSNLMS RRS and also the existing JAG posts. It is also decided that the committee has to submit the report within a period of maximum 6 months.
Comrades, what we have to recognize and appreciate is that through
this limited organizational activity we have succeeded in re-opening vital issues of standard pay scales
and introduction of CPSU cadre hierarchy which virtually lay deep buried.
Besides, we are committed to make it absolutely sure through this committee that our existing
promotional path defined by BSNLMS RRs and the number of existing JAG posts remain completely undiluted and intact, whatsoever.
We have to safeguard both the path as well as number of JAG posts. That is also going to be our major task in the committee
since this is what we have already achieved.
Final outcome of the recommendations of the committee will largely
depend upon how much united and consistent we are from our side in focusing the issues, and, on that account, we reassure
all of you that we all will fully live up to your expectations and the trust you have reposed in all of us to resolve these
base level, in the days to come, we will have to further consolidate the unity and bring about greater cohesiveness amongst
the affiliates of the United Forum so as to remain in a state of complete organizational preparedness. That will help us immensely
in getting satisfactory final result on our demands.

INDEFINTE WORK TO RULE FROM 15.2. ‘12: GO ON FOR MASS MOBILIZATION .
Don’t become victims of Conspiracy –
Come out courageously and fearlessly to Fight out vested interests by igniting widespread fire - Don’t stop to look
back – Expose and Defeat Diabolical game plan of Management to rehabilitate vested interests by destabilizing our beloved
Company – Salvage BSNL - Despatch deserters and their cohorts to Barracks – Don’t allow Company to be blackmailed
or held to ransom - Latest brazen faced and malicious manipulation protecting seniority too.
Our response and strategy should be quite calibrated,
very well thought about (not an iota of emotion) and prudent – Let us not fall a prey to a calculatedly worked out sinister
and larger game plan of BSNL management in collusion with ITSA and bureaucracy in DOT to create a situation to allow perpetual
deputation to ITS by going to courts to get “Malicious Rehabilitation Rules” stayed.
Has the latest missive of BSNL management to protect the seniority, besides protecting pay
and other issues, of ITS getting recruited through “Malicious Rehabilitation Rules” surprised anyone in BSNL? No - not even a single person since BSNL management in close
conspiracy with ITSA and its godfathers in DOT have been burning midnight oil to work out a systematic strategy and plan of
action to prompt those who are an integral part of the Company to go to Courts and get “Rehabilitation Rules”
stayed so as to create a situation to allow ITS to continue on perpetual deputation in BSNL.
The strategy is so much naked that it is known to every
tom, dick and harry in BSNL – incorporate as blatantly discriminatory provisions in “Rehabilitation Rules” as much as possible tofacilitate courts to
stay these rules at the very drop of hat.Do not leave any kind of scope for Courts whatsoever to put on hold
these RRs, BSNL Managements top most priority. That alone will create a fate accompli situation and give a very strong strategic
leverage and tool to BSNL management and bureaucracy in DOT to plead and succeed inevitably in ensuring perpetual deputation
Perpetual deputation would unquestionably mean digging last nail in the “coffin of BSNL, not
to talk about us. That however is just of no consequence, relevance and interest to either BSNL Management or DOT. On this
both have and continue to be on the same wavelength.
The issue before all of us is whether we allow ourselves to become victims of this diabolical game plan. Does not BSNL management or bureaucracy in DOT know that the provisions
being incorporated in Rehabilitation Rules are patently discriminatory and that a simple application by a street side lawyer
will result in putting the Rehabilitation Rules in limbo and deeply frozen state to allow ITS continue as feudal lords in
Comrades, we have to
recall our strength and capacity to fight, fight it out relentlessly on the streets, fight it out to the last drop of our
blood to salvage BSNL and not look back till we are freed from the clutches of feudal lords who have exploited and fleeced
us and our beloved company for decades and are now readying to dig last nail in the coffin of BSNL by provoking people to
knock the doors of the courts to get Rehabilitation Rules stayed so as to continue in BSNL on perpetual deputation as exploiters.
Make the demonstration
on 7th Feb., 12 a spectacular success and march on valiantly and fearlessly to that great and what could possibly
be greatest struggle commencing from 15th Feb.,12 that will expose vested interests and defeat their diabolical
game plan, eventually deciding our destiny and giving new direction to BSNL.

over it !
Whether BSNL has framed the rules to accommodate
the unabsorved ITS Officers
into BSNL ?
Because the unabsorbed ITS Officers working in
BSNL and not repatriated to DOT so far is equivalent to the posts approved for
filling up by the BSNL Board through RRs (450 SAG / HAG + 600 JAG / NFSG).
When an ITS Officer with B.Tech Qualification is
eligible for selection to JAG / NFSG and SAG / HAG, why other executives with
similar or higher qualification are not eligible ?
When ITS Officers upto 58 years of age are
eligible for selection why not other absorbed executives
It clearly shows the partisan attitude of the BSNL
Management in safeguarding the interest
of the unabsorbed ITS Officers. The BSNL
Management is not concentrating on the development
it is making all out efforts to
bring the unabsorbed ITS Officers back into BSNL .

MANAGEMENT TRAINEE RECRUITMENT:
United Forum of BSNL Executives' Association writes
to CMD, BSNL for the modification of provisions of MT RR notified on 01.09.2009 which are discriminatory and against natural
justice. UF clearly told the Management that the notification not only discriminates and denies the really meritorious, but
is also violative of the DOP & Trg guidelines and various Supreme Court Judgments as it will lead to the creation of "a class with in a class". UF demanded the internal
fast track promotion is to be carried out without discriminations of qualifications and age, otherwise we
will be unwillingly constrained to resort to all actions including agitational and legal actions to ensure justice prevails.
Letter issued on MT Recruitment by BSNL >>>>>
16th Sept 2009 Recruitment of DGMs: For 210 DGM posts, only 710 eligible applicants. Out of 2040 applicants,1330 are ineligible. Written Examination on 11.10.2009. For details www.bsnl.co.in
Meeting with DIR(HRD), BSNL:
GS, AGS Com. K. Sebastin and Jt Sec (North) Com. Inderjith Singh met DIR(HRD) and discussed the MT R/R and the proposed MT
recruitment. GM(Pers) also present. We clearly told the Management that the age and educational qualification mentioned in
the MT R/R for internal candidates is in clear violation of orders of DoP&Trg, regulating the provisions of the internal competitive examination.
3000 to 4000 Engineering Graduates from premier institutions such as Regional Engineering Colleges (NITs) and Govt. Engg colleges
(some of them having M Tech) recruited by DoT in the year 1994 and prior to that and having minimum 12 years of experience
in Telecom operations are not allowed to compete in the internal competitive examination. In addition to this, thousands of
Post Graduates and Graduates with minimum first class (even some of them are University rank holders) and having vast experience
in Telecom operations also deprived the opportunity. Some of them having MBA/MCA degree also. Some JTOs quit their job and
joined BSNL in 2001 year rect. also not eligible because of the age limit. GM(Pers) informed that already relaxation of 6
years is given to the internal candidates as 5 years relaxation given by UPSC. We clearly told that this relaxation of 6 years
is for External quota and not for Internal quota. For Intl quota, there should not be any age or qualification bar. If the
Management not considering this, we fear that the entire rect process may face legal hurdle and the recruitment will
be delayed for years together. Further we told that we will submit a comprehensive note on Monday and management has to reconsider
the eligibility conditions of Intl candidates based on that. We will further discuss the matter with CMD/DIR(HRD), BSNL next
Clarification on Time Bound Promotion Policy for Executives on revised and provisional IDA
pay scales for JTO/JAO/SDE/AO: The TBP promotion due on or after 01.01.2007 for JTO/JAO to SDE/AO grade has to be kept in
abeyance till the notification of final pay scales. The TBP due upto 31.12.2006 will be assessed on the basis of pre-revised
scales. Already settled cases on pre-revised scales and due on or after 01.01.2007 has to be reviewed on notification of revised
new pay scales. <<Clarification>>
11.09.2009 RECRUITMENT OF MANAGEMENT
Association is all along pleading with the Management that there should not be any AGE / QUALIFICATION BAR for
the rect. of Management Trainees through internal competitive examination. Association elaborately submitted its views to
the committee constituted under the chairmanship of PGM (IR) to examine the issue of relaxation in age and qualification for
MT rect through internal competitive examination. Association strongly pleaded for allowing BSc, 1st class (Educational
qualification for Outside rect of JTOs), with no age bar, to appear for the internal competitive examination.
The management has ignored the views of the Association in contravention of the orders of DoP&Trg, regulating the provisions
of the internal competitive examination. Association is determined to end this discrimination and going to take up the issue
with the Management once again. Managements failure to respond to our plea of conduction of internal competitive examination
in accordance to DoP&Trg rules allowing Executives to appear in the internal competitive examination with no age bar and
Educational qualifications of BSc (First Class), shall force the Association to seek appropriate legal recourse.
