The Awareness session by BSNL Management for Unions and Associations
The Awareness session by BSNL Management was held at Conference Hall, 9th Floor, BSNL CO on 30th Novemeber 2013. From the association side GS Ravi Shil Verma along with Vice President Shri Shailash Kumar Attended the session. BSNL Management presented an informative session regarding future roadmap of BSNL, the steps to be taken , Financial Viability and current Financial strength of the company and other details. Association will submit the feedback on the session in a week's time. The management side expressed that the basic purpose of this session was to have a information exchange between Employee and Employer and with a view to ensure participation of Unions and Associations in the steps and actions to be taken. We welcome this step of BSNL management towards encouraging Unions and Associations to participate in such development activities, however we wish that next time onwards such sessions may be interactive in nature where information exchange may be from both the sides. The presentation was overall very informative and to the point.
Earlier on Friday, GS along with AGS Amit Roy met director (HR) and discussed on the updates on the issues. Director (HR) informed GS that the HR team will apprise shortly, the outcome of the deliberations to CMD BSNL. GS also discussed on the CPSU hierarchy issues on which Director (HR) sounded very positive. He said to have such policies, Performance shall be made a criteria and droppings would be there. GS said that they have always advocated the stand that promotions should always be
biased on performance and that should not be given as free gift. However, from the discussions on other issues , it could be clearly interpreted that HR team is merely doing formalities and trying to justify their earlier stand despite of several supporting documents submitted by association in these three month. If that was the case, their was no point in giving us a written communication that our issues shall be examined and resolved in light of the facts submitted by this association while in actuality, HR team is taking no cognizance of such facts and documents submitted by the association. Under such circumstances, HR team have also forgotten that they themselves have issued letters justifying the genunity of our issues.
We however, are waiting for the decision of our worthy CMD BSNL who till now has always stood firm on his words. We are having high hopes on the judicious approach and wisdom of CMD BSNL. We firmly believe that atleast he will take cognizance of the facts and documents submitted by this association and do justice to our issues. Most likely the meeting is going to be held in second week of
December and thereafter, we will take our decision for next course of action. We have waited enough and we have shown our restraint also but if somebody presumes it to be our weakness then let them run in that paradise, we will show our strength and might at the right time. Members should be ready for another do or die battle if that
situation comes. We will resume from there where we left it last time however with a difference that this time the approach will be three layered i.e. CHQ. Circle and District. We are thankful for the patience and restraint shown by members and the belief shown on the words of CHQ.
Updates on DoPT Case at Ernakulam:
DoPT case came for hearing on 29th November at Hon'ble Ernakulam CAT. The case has been posted after six weeks for hearing. Hon'ble CAT also directed BSNL and Applicants to submit the reply. The details will be uploaded soon.

Details of Agitational Program at Bhopal on 18th
Around 80 members from Bhopal and nearby places gathered
at CGM office Bhopal to protest the vindictive actions
of MP circle administration against our all India
President Shri R P Shahu. From CHQ side, Shri Mantosh
Kumar (VP-II), Shri Shailash Kumar (VP-III), Shri Amit
Roy (AGS-I), Shri Pavan Akhand (AGS-III), Shri Abhishek
Jain (AGS-IV), were present along with GS and President.
All India President Shri R P Shahu, General Secretary
Shri Ravi Shil Verma and Circle secretary MP Shri S K
Gupta addressed the gathering and explained that this
was not a matter pertaining to an individual but it was
the matter pertaining to the head of the apex body of
AIGETOA which is the virtual umbrella under which each
and every member is residing and if this umbrella is
torn, nobody can feel himself safe. The pride of the
association as well as the fraternity is associated with
this issue and hence we could not have sat silent. All
present in the gathering resolved that till the issues
are not going to be sorted out, none of them will move
an inch from CGM office. Sensing the situation, CGMT
called GS for a one to one meeting. GS along with CS MP
went for discussions. In a marathon meeting which lasted
for around two hours and which went through all sorts of
situations, emotions, heated exchanges, gestures etc.,
ultimately the issues were sorted out to our fullest
satisfaction. All the issues were discussed and
deliberated in detail, and the resolution was reached in
an amicable environment. Thereafter, GS in consultation
with Sr. GM (Admin) discussed and concluded on the
format of letters to be issued on various issues.
Whatever the earlier circumstances may be, we are
thankful to Hon’ble CGM MP and the circle administration
for realizing and accepting the logics presented by GS
AIGETOA. It was because of sensible and mature approach
from both the sides, a big stand-off was avoided and the
resolution was reached. Thereafter, later as token of
blessings and remembrance, CGM MP Telecom Circle
presented a book to Shri Ravi Shil Verma. We convey our
thanks and gratitude to CGM for the same.
We hope this positive gesture shown by both the sides
will bring a new chapter in MP circle which will go a
long way in resolving the various issues pertaining to
direct recruits of MP circle and unnecessary standoffs
arising out of communication gaps can be avoided.
We once again thank all the members across the country
and CHQ office bearers who supported the cause and shown
their solidarity with CHQ team on the issue.
Updates on the issues :
Before going to Bhopal, GS has met Sr. GM (SR) to
discuss the status of the issues. Though, he did not put
much light onto the issues but from the discussions, it
could be inferred that management is zeroing on
implementation of CPSU setup in BSNL and deliberations
are in process. GS along with CHQ team is pursuing and
keeping track of developments. However, this should not
give us a room for complacency as our goal is to achieve
the resolution of the issues in totality. GS has
requested Sr. GM (SR) for arranging the agenda meeting
with CMD BSNL. GS has also apprised Sr. GM (SR) about
the resentment that is developing in the minds of all
the DRs because of the non-resolution of the issues. Sr.
GM (SR) told that CMD BSNL shall be coming back next
week, thereafter he will discuss it with him.
We request all the members to start preparations at
grass root level. CHQ is knocking the doors of all
concerned including various levels of BSNL management.
The issues related to direct recruits of BSNL have even
been taken to Youth Icon and Congress Vice President
Shri Rahul Gandhi ji and he has assured to look into the
matter. Even then if the resolution is not in sight then
before blowing the final trumpet, we should be ready in
terms of organisational setup till grass root level i.e.
at the level of joint secretaries, Circle secretaries,
district secretaries and finally to each and every
member. We should be ready in terms of finances, we
should be ready in terms of our preparedness, we should
be ready in terms of organizational structure, and we
should be ready in terms of whatever support we can
provide for this battle for survival. We hereby request
each and every member to come forward and remind his
nearest office bearer if he is lagging behind regarding
the action to be taken. All dues should be cleared at
CHQ, Circle and District level, every district should
have a district body and every office bearer should
perform his duty. Every CS, DS should start convening
the meetings and start motivating the members for the
grand finale. Those who cannot rise to the need of the
hour or are weak hearted are welcome to quit and pass
the torch to the next person who can assume the
responsibility. It’s time to be ready and ready for the
final bang on the target and even a slightest degree of
negligence may derail our preparations. We once again
assure our members that there is no complacency on our
part but even if there is slightest hope for amicable
resolution, we should not lose that opportunity either.
We further, assure the members that this will not be an
endless process and very soon we shall be coming with
final plan of action if everything fails. Till that time
let each one of us should concentrate on preparations
which shall be very shortly communicated through the
JAI AIGETOA, JAI DR FRATERNITY, JAI BSNL, JAI BHARAT.
Issues related to vindictive actions against our All India President Shri R P
Shahu are resolved amicably up to the level of satisfaction with your huge
support throughout the country. We are extremely thankful to one and all
specially the members of AIGETOA MP & CHQ Office bearers who have participated
with full strength in short notice.

throughout the country should be ready to reach Bhopal if circumstances do arise
because this association has to fight till the last breath as this is the matter
of our Dignity and Pride. Resolution of all the issues which are under process
totally depends on fighting spirit of our leadership hence protection of our
leadership against such vindictive actions is at top of any of the issues.
Sh R P Shahu has fought like a true leader for the common cause of DR fraternity
and still fighting with same spirit putting his sweat and blood, sacrificing his
family life, day and night. He is not facing any allegation of corruption,
sexual harassment, any unethical practice etc but he has been targeted just to
raise the voice against wrong and corrupt practice in BSNL. Now it depends on us
if we allow management to take any actions against our beloved leader or we will
keep our chanted words
“R P Shahu
Sangharsh Karo Hum Tumahare Saath Hain”
(R P Shahu
Keep Fighting, we are with you). R P Shahu is still fighting, whether we are
Just watch the
videos when we have given our words. Now it’s up to us whether we want to earn
our bread & butter respectfully or want to live disgraceful life. Living in
cocoon of safe zones will further lead to more vindictive actions and more
coercive measures from management, which will not be stopped at leadership level
only but will reach to each and every member. Will we be just mute spectators to
the management’s vindictive action OR Management will hear a loud bang it all
depends on our tomorrow’s action. So let us all give a clear message to
management that such things can never be tolerated and force management to act
in just manner.

Action plan to give strong reaction against vindictive action on our beloved All
India President Sh R P Shahu:
as all of you know that M P Circle Administration has crossed all its limits of
authority by acting vindictively against our beloved All India President Sh R P
Shahu putting a question mark over the administrative conduct. Before acting in
such a vindictive manner against any representative of this association, M P
Circle management should have thought time and again but they have completely
undermined our strength and unity. After trying every amicable ways, this
association has decided to teach the lesson to such officers who are acting
vindictively against our office bearers.
members of MP Telecom Circle and nearby circle are requested to reach Bhopal by
10:00 am on 18th Nov-2013. Those circle/members who cannot manage to reach
Bhopal must hold protest at their own place. This process must go on indefinite
till further direction of CHQ. Remember this protest is not for resolution of
the issues but a strong reaction against vindictive action of the management
that too against our All India President Sh R P Shahu to undermine this
association hence there is no need to serve any prior notice. If today we are
not able to react tomorrow no one is safe and even we cannot think about future
leadership who shall lead us for resolution of our various issues.
Protest with following demands:
cancellation of Transfer order and Unconditional written apology by Circle
administration for taking vindictive action and false allegations against our
All India President.
of all the charges against Sh R P Shahu and probe into the allegation made.
the complaints against the wrongful act of Sh A C Mishra in reliving of SDEs
to BRABRAITT to CVC for fair enquiry.
enquiry against DGM/AGM Singrauli Sh V K Shrivastava for misuse of office
vehicle, continuous absence from the office, alleged corruption in UG cable
maintenance, vehicle hiring etc. which are the real causes of revenue fall of
Singrauli. The real cause of fall in revenue of Singrauli should be enquired,
responsibility should be fixed and culprit and corrupt should be punished.
