The protest demonstration under the banner of Joint Forum against the restructuring notification was organised successfully with full participation from all the Executives across the country. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the executives for lending the support to the program. We once again reaffirm our commitment to ensure promotions in a time bound manner for all the Executive and that we are prepared to go to any extent to ensure the same.
Today AIP Shri Ravi Shil Verma and GS Shri Wasi Ahmad also met PGM Pers BSNL CO and enquired about the discussion with respect to handling the promotional aspects including that of stagnation. We reminded that Honble CMD BSNL Committed for initiating the discussion with respect to the promotional avenues and stagnation after 15th November 2021. However no action has been initiated yet despite his assurance including diversion of MT Quota vacancies to DPC despite approval from BSNL Board.
PGM Pers informed that committee for amending various RRs have been constituted which will look into all the aspects. Committee for amending BSNL MSRR will also be notified within this week only.
We registered our strong resentment on keeping stagnation of 12 years for promotion to JTO to SDE despite categorical rejection by association. We once again reiterated that management should look into making the promotion time-bound in line with the earlier approved CPSU proposal. We said that erstwhile BSNL Board has approved a timeline of 15 years for reaching to the post of AGM and same should be honoured.
PGM Pers advised us to exercise patience and assured that committee will look into all the aspects hampering the promotional avenues of executives including revisiting the 12 years stagnation clause in JTO Cadre and discussion with Associations shall be initiated soon. We also requested PGM Pers for immediately notifying the diversion of MT Quota Posts to DPC Quota as approved by BSNL Board. We also said since there is moratorium on external recruitment, hence all the posts should be filled up from internal candidates through DPC Route.
PGM Pers again reiterated that committee constituted for amending the RRs will look into all the aspects and said that very soon developments will be seen. We said that in the absence of an early action, association shall be forced to resort to intense orgnasitational actions and hence immediate necessary action should be initiated to avoid industrial unrest.
Letter for BSNL MS RR shall also be issued within this week.
