Court Case filed at Hon’ble CAT Jabalpur dismissed – Opening the channel of SDE Promotion

The court case filed at Hon’ble CAT Jabalpur by some executives on JTO to SDE DPC promotion has been dismissed on 01.07.2021. AIGETOA was trying hard to revoke the stay by the Hon’ble Court and finally truth prevailed in the form of dismissal. This dismissal of the case once again vindicated our stand and now we request the management to issue the JTO to SDE promotion without further delay. We request all JTOs to shun this crab culture as it is not going to benefit anyone. Instead let’s join hand together to support each other and ensure rightful due. We assure to stand for one and all executives including JTOs) irrespective of their belongingness and affiliation.

SAB Case Update : Hon’ble CAT Ernakulam

The OA for demanding the full SAB dues wef date of joining filed by AIGETOA in the name of Association, also admitted at Hon CAT Ernakulam. The earlier case was filed by members of AIGETOA as individuals to avoid complexity in case of rejection as SAB can be termed as individual benefit also and it was required to be done before 3rd PRC implementation. That case was admitted and DPE as well as BSNL submitted its reply. Now after becoming majority recognised association, AIGETOA filed a fresh application also at Ernakulam to expedite the process and to cover all the BSNL Recruits irrespective of association or grade as beneficiary.

After initial admission, The case was posted on 01.07.2021.

Today BSNL Standing counsel admitted that there are definite dues towards SAB contribution and due to paucity of funds, the same has not been extended. Hon’ble Tribunal has directed BSNL to submit a statement showing the amounts due as per the existing scheme in two weeks time. During hearing Hon Court also observed that the said amount cannot be denied or delayed and needs to be paid without any delay.

Dear friends, in the membership change window season, long long writeups are coming from various groups containing CR of AIGETOA association in the last 10 months of being majority. Though it’s laughable and ridiculous that people who were in the helm of the affairs for more than two decades are writing CR of AIGETOA and its leadership for the last 10 months. We also wish to inform that some splinter groups are also in quest for defaming AIGETOA.

However, we once again reiterate that we will reply all these people and splinter groups through action and results. Things have been delayed because of reasons beyond our control and not because of lack of intent or initiative.

We once again leave it to people to exercise their conscience and recognise what is good and what is bad..

Our legal team is on Job for replacement of E1 Pay Scale by E2 pay scales as entry level JTO/JAO scales. We already have obtained an stay on degradation of Pay Scales in JTO RR and very soon we will be apprising you about some good news on that part also.

We extend our special accolades to AIGETOA Kerala Legal Team who are taking this issue from front under the guidance of AIGETOA CHQ.
