BSNL released the speaking order suppressing all genuine rights of the qualified LDCE Executives who have been even denied the quota in the vacancy year wise. This is a completely wrong and biased interpretation of the Hon’ble Supreme Court Order and suppression of Merit in BSNL. It is also a breach of trust with the association that without consulting it, the Pers Cell has gone ahead to release the speaking order in contrary terms by subverting the rights of the LDCE Executives. This thought process is detrimental for the organization where the merit is always pushed to the last bench. The association will not accept this decision and oppose through all means.

AIGETOA extend profound thanks to the Director HR and GM Training for considering the request of AIGETOA for postponement of EPP Exam scheduled from 1st June, 2021 and safeguarding the interest of executives by giving relaxation for the next increment for those who have completed Two Year in the current Pay Scale but couldn’t appear in the exam due to prevailing Pandemic of Covid19. Team AIGETOA received representation from various executives across the BSNL and was consistently pursuing for postponement of online EPP Exam since 3-4 days in view of then extensive travel involved by the executives from their place of posting to the respective RTTC. Finally the efforts yielded positive result. We also want to apprise that AIGETOA is pursuing with the management to end this online exam process and instead of it introduced one or two weeks refresher course at different RTTC for some meaningful betterment of administrative and technical skill after the up-gradation of scale else close the whole process.
AIGETOA writes to the Director HR for postponement of EPP Exam in view of Pandemic spread in the country. AIGETOA also demanded to replace the exam with 1-2 weeks training program for the executives after normalization of the situation. But the increment of those Executives should not be affected, who have completed two years in the scale.
Suggestion of AIGETOA with respect to the opinion sought by the management for steps to be taken for employee welfare in the current scenario.
The Hon’ble High Court, Guwahati has accepted the application of AIGETOA to be a party in the ongoing IDA Freezing Case at Guwahati. Earlier AIGETOA appeared in the Hon’ble Court on 12th March through its council and pleaded to become intervener in the ongoing case. After listening the arguments of all parties, the Hon’ble Court accepted AIGETOA plea to be a party in the case. Now the association will be submitting its detailed arguments in the Court for lifting of the IDA Freezing order from BSNL Employees citing the various grounds. We will not only demand its restoration but the payment of arrear also for the lost periods.
