Rule 8 Transfers of JTOs in Kartnataka Circle.

This Association has held a meeting with Respected Shri P Nagaraju CGMT Karnataka circle yesterday from 1630 hours to 1830 hours and discussed on the agenda points published by this association on 22nd. On the discussion of our main Agenda for consideration of the RULE 8 TRNASFERS IN THE CADRE OF JTOs, who have been working in this circle for 8 to 14 years having lost the hope of getting the transfer on the tough stand taken by the earlier administration. Though initially the management was banking on the shortage of executives, the status of the working strength of neighboring circles etc., and they would be working out the possible few cases to be considered ete.etc.,. This association has presented the status of the cases and year wise analyses and the increase in the strength that is getting added due to the incumbents right now under training and also in the coming LICEs etc., We have placed our firm demand that if administration is not serious and committed even though we have been claiming our demand periodically that when the appropriate opportunity is clearly available before the management and also to look into the angle of the employee side who are in fact loosing their social and family life for decades, this organization will be left with no other option other than resorting to organizational ways and means. PGM Admn and HR Shri N Venkateshwara Rao while reacting to our view point of demanding more than 100 Rule 8 transfers, expressed that administratively around 65 to 70 cases of Rule 8 can be considered right now in the present situation. CGM was ultimately kind enough to consider the suggestion and assured us that not less than 65 cases of Rule 8 will be considered. We have reiterated our demand to consider even more.

Comrades, we really acknowledge and place on record the humane approach of our CGMT Shri P Nagaraju and PGM HR and Admn Shri N Venkateshwara Rao, for the keen interest in understanding the feelings and heart burns of these comrades and the difficulties and the agony being faced by them and ultimately came forward to resolve the long standing issue. We are thankful to them.

Comrades, we are also committed to our demand of commencing the process and completion of these assured 65 Rule 8 transfers. We therefore further requested for the time bound action in the matter. PGM HR assured to complete the process within 15 days from today.

Whatever other demands were also there were discussed and CGM assured positive action in the matter.

This association requests all the active members and the district branches to be in a state of alert and ready for any sort of organizational action if the assured case of Rule 8 transfer gets diluted in any manner. If we miss this time we miss it for a long time. Let us not miss the bus.

From SNEA Com S B Nagavi CS, Com Govinda Gudi COS, Com Sadanand Makkannavar DS CO, Com Narain Nandakumar DS Kolar and Com Panduranga Nayak JSS CHQ have represented. Shri N Venkateshwara Rao, PGM HR and Admn and Shri M V Angadi DGM Staff wre also present from the administaation side.

CS once again thanked administration for the concrete assurance on Rule 8 transfers.

CHQ News:

Glorious Struggle of SNEA against Coruption:

What a glorious end to Kerala struggle- crusade against corruption has come to its logical end - posterity will always emulate this historic struggle against corruption.

It all began with just a humble request from CS of our kerala Unit in May 2014 to Sh. M.S.S.Rao, then CGM, urging upon and pleading with him not to reopen the issue of penalty of Rs 30 crores imposed and realized from MS Nortel more than three years before for its failure to meet contractual obligations of executing GSM project within the stipulated timeframe. Hell bent upon giving reprieve to Nortel, come what may, in one or the other, this simple request infuriated M.S.S.Rao, already with a tainted past, to such an extent that he unleashed a reign of terror and ruthlessly victimized thousands and thousands of our members through arbitrary transfers, fabricated dies-nons and concocted charge sheets and what not. Oppression of the worst kind was let loose, reminiscent of the tyrants in the medieval days. 

Undeterred and unruffled, great Comrades of our Kerala continued their tirade against corruption and did not allow M.S.S.Rao to dilute the said penalty, despite his unrelenting efforts to form one committee after another to somehow waive off the said penalty. This was precisely and exactly the crux of the crusade waged by our valiant heroes of Kerala who never looked back during the course of their tireless struggle and continued their onslaught against corruption fearlessly to stop M.S.S.Rao from vitiating an otherwise healthy working environment of Kerala and safeguarding resources of the Company by exposing his corrupt activities.

The end of this glorious struggle is not ignominious exit of M.S.S.Rao, since that was and has never been our issue and is not our culture, but serving of two major charge sheets under Rule 14 to M.S.S Rao, both involving serious financial irregularities and impropriety. That is where our struggle assumes historical significance and relevance and we stand very very tall in the house of the Trade Unions and fully vindicated, heads high up. Our relentless tirade against corruption and its inevitable success yet again places us at the top of the ladder in so far as exposing and defeating corruption is concerned.  

One charge sheet relates to when Sh. M.S.S Rao was booked by CBI in the year 2008-09 as GM marketing BSNL CO. This Association got him shifted that time also from GM marketing instantaneously. CBI, after thorough investigation, spanning over six years, and establishing his complicity in the financial irregularities, recommended initiation of major disciplinary proceedings against him.

 The second charge sheet significantly pertains to series of serious financial and other irregularities, including that of Nortel, committed by him as CGM/Kerala. This Association apprised MOC&IT, Secy/DOT and the vigilance machinery of DOT/BSNL, including BSNL Management, in detail and continuously about these serious irregularities and finally this Association succeeded in getting these irregularities probed by the vigilance wing of the Karnataka Circle of BSNL after prolonged discussions with the then CVO/BSNL

After a thorough investigation by the vigilance wing of the Karnataka Circle, for more than a year, involvement of Sh.M.S.S.Rao in these irregularities is fully established. Thereafter, after thorough scrutiny of the report of the vigilance wing of BSNL by the vigilance wing of DOT , and seeking opinion and obtaining concurrence from the CVC, major disciplinary proceedings under Rule -14 have also been initiated against Sh.M.S.S.Rao for these irregularities.

Thus, after thorough investigations, by CBI and CVO/BSNL, Sh M.S.S.Rao is severely indicted on grounds of serious financial and other irregularities. What a glorious and inevitable end to crusade against corruption by our great fighters of Kerala. Posterity will emulate this ever memorable struggle to safeguard legitimate interests of the Company and will not allow corrupt people to squander away precious resources of the Company and vitiate its working environment. And finally, of course and unquestionably, all those, who brazen facedly and in defiance of all known ethics of trade union, not only supported corrupt practices of Sh M.S.S.Rao but his massive acts of victimization against all those who stood up like a rock to oppose these acts, stand thoroughly exposed.
