He was critical of the BSNL as well as DOT who have given everything of Central Pay Commission to ITS but playing with the future young executives of BSNL.

Com Somanath Jagadale DS Hubli, addressed the gathering and requested members to look at the achievements of JETA, JTOA, TEOA and SNEA where the achievements lead to the change of name of the association closely connected with landmarks achievements of JE upgrading as JTO with Rs 1640 scale, JTO getting Gazetted stated with Rs 6500 scale and two mighty organizations TEOA and BSNLEA merging to form SNEA respectively.

Com S B Nagavi CS, congratulated the huge gathering at Mangalore and thanked the leaders of sister organizations to analyses who are responsible for the delay in settlement of present issues particularly E2E3 and why others are not focused but diverting and diluting the same by asking cascading at this stage of resolution of standard pay scale before 3rd PRC. Now time has come to decide on selecting a best association with secret ballot not for electing the association but to select their bright future and it is only SNEA which can never disappoint them at any time. The leaders of SNEA have compassion, are committed and fully involved themselves in theses policy issues.
Com Jogi, addressed the gathering and in detail explained the plan of Government of India, NITI Ayog to destroy all PSUs, and one step in BSNL is to create a tower company so that the company BSNL which is turning towards making profit can again be forced to go into losses.

Com Tataqbabu, Dr JTO and CEC member in detail analyzed how the DRs are being fooled by the other associations.

Com Jogi in his address at Shimoga thanked the members for the warm welcome and affection.The vision and the commitment shown towards the issues like Standard Pa Scales, CPSU hierarchy and the 30% superannuation by us is leading to a total consolidation of the executives under the banner of SNEA. Day in and day out the other executive associations with their narrow mind set of just opposing and criticizing SNEA have been exposed totally by educating the executating them by our massive tours and meetings conducted by the state and central leaders of SNEA. Due to various court cases CPSU cadre hierarchy is the only solution for functional promotion. E2 and E3 scales in replacement of E1A and E2A is the right of our JTO/JAO and SDE/AO and at any cost we will get it if necessary by struggle and appealed the members to get ready for the challenge. Remaining 9% SAB is our top priority for your BRs and this will be achieved shortly after verification. It is for these reasons he appealed to eliminate the stumbling blocks in the way during the forthcoming verification.

Today posting orders of JAOs issued in Karnataka circle and all promotees can join on Monday. We are thankful to Smt Sumam Pillai, Sr GM Finance for immediate action. Congratulations to JAO friends and we are proud to state that what was promised by us on Thursday evening at RTTC Mysore was made a reality by the untiring efforts of our leaders.
Massive gathering of JAOs at RTTC Mysore:
CS SNEA was with JAOs trainees at RTTC Mysore on Thursday the 17th Nov 2016, when they received the shocking news of their posting abeyance issue:
Com S B Nagavi, along with Circle President Com B S Venkateshmurthy, Accounts Officer and District President of Shimoga Com H C Krishnamurthy, District President Com M N Ramakrishna, District Secretary Com A B Naragund, ADS Com Raghavendra and Treasurer Com Rangaswamy of Mysore SSA visited RTTC Mysore, took stock of the situation held emergency meeting with the trainees and immediately taken up the issue with CHQ. CS spoken to General Secretary Com Sebastin, Com Khan CHQ President and other leaders of SNEA who were at Delhi and explained them the legal intricacies if the appointment is delayed.
As the trainees they were very much interested to hear us; CS and other leaders addressed them and assured of all help in fighting this draconian stand of the management on the last day of training. CS assured them that he will not leave any stone unturned in the issue and will be in constant touch with CHQ. CS made the point of SNEA very clear that they have come here to say what SNEA is for and not at all to force the trainees just to become members of our association. Com Ramakrishna, Com BSV Murthy, Com Naragund, Com HCK Murthy also spoke on the occasion. Com HCK Murthy told the members that since he become JAO, he the member of SNEA and said more than 25 AOs/JAOs are also members of SNEA in the circle and the impression that accounts wing is not with SNEA is a false propaganda. He explained how comfortable in this home of executives. When a lady accounts officer Smt Malathi was just suffocated and deserted by the an association and their Circle President as DGM finance at that time issued the vindictive transfer order it is SNEA which took her case even to the Hon Tribunal and got cancelled the order with the direction from the Hon CAT that Accounts wing should follow the transfer policy.He said that many young JTOs are becoming the victim of wrong stand taken by other association and deprived of E2 scale and drawing only 16400 scale (E1). Com Ramakrishna told the trainees to believe SNEA and it will come out with colors in your case. Com BSV Murthy referred to issues of dangers of Tower Company and to plan for a stronger struggle to get 3rd PRC and for this unity under the banner of SNEA is going to be consolidated after 7th December as the majority association. Com Naragund welcomed and Com Raghavendra, our young DR JTO who served in Pooch of J&K, now working as a front line leader in SNEA as ADS Mysore thanked the members.
After the meeting almost all members in single voice told that if SNEA minds, we will on Monday join as JAOs and appealed to us to put our pressure to its maximum extent. One of the trainee spoke and told that he has in his service seen the fights of SNEA and the way it handles the management being in this department for decades and has strong hope and belief in SNEA that if it minds it can save them.
The trainees also told the house that the publication of 56 JAOs en mass joined an association is totally baseless and false news.

CS writes to CGMT on Rule 8 and request transfers:
Shri P Nagaraju,
Chief General Manager Telecommunications,
BSNL, Karnataka Circle, Bangalore-560008.
Sub: Pending intra circle request transfers and Rule 8 transfers in the cadre of JTOs.
This is bring to your kind notice that there are huge number of Rule 8 transfers and intra circle transfers in the cadre of JTOs is pending in Karnataka circle and the WL are not cleared for years and years.
This association had been pursuing the issue and even went on organization action in May 2016 to oppose the unwarranted long stay transfers of JTOs and also to ensure the rule 8 and request transfer in the cadre of JTOs. Finally management has given written assurance to this association addressed to CS SNEA Karnataka vide letter No. SR/SNEA/2-20-16/58 dtd 4-5-2016 (copy enclosed) , that 64 Rule 8 and 14 intra circle transfers and no long stay transfer will be ordered. (Please see our May agreement)
When we said the quantum of cases being considered is very small you were kind enough to assure us that during the current year you would be considering remaining cases to a maximum extent as BSNL HQ had informed that these will be considerable induction of JTOs in the circle in the form of LICE and new recruitments. In view of the positive development and as per the appeal this association has withdrawn the programme of organizational action.
While placing on record that your kind office has almost ensured implementation of the said transfers, would like to once again request you to kindly commence the process of the rule 8 transfers in the cadre of JTOs immediately and keep ready the lists of all the candidates waiting for Rule 8, so that as and when the substitutes become available, they can be easily implemented. This will pave the smooth way of relieving by the field units to fill the vacant posts with the new incumbent without any hardship of reliving and it will also create no vacuum of posts thereby helps administratively.
We assure of our fullest co-operation in the matter to maintain the cordial relationship at all times, provided we are not pushed to the wall, the way it was handled in May 2016.
S B Nagavi
- Shri Anupam Shrivatsavaji, CMD, BSNL, BSNL CO Newdelhi.
- Com K Sebastin, General Secretary, SNEA CHQ for kind information and n/a.
Comrades, if we have to bring our friends (JTOs) who have been transferred in March 2015 on long stay, we have to wipe out the intra circle transfer WL of JTOs. We have ensure this at any cost.
Congratulations Mysore Comrades:
Two more executives of Mysore SSA have joined SNEA. We heartly welcome them.

As responsible organization we are bound to ensure the progress of the company as well as the career progression of the executives. Com Khan re-collected our roles in the fight against 3G capitalization of private operators, BWA spectrum return, Reliance local call scandal, unbundling of copper wire, 45M tender of GSM and exposing the corrupt officers in BSNL like ex- CGMT Kerala and he said it is needed to protect BSNL, so that it can progress to its greater heights and this WATCH and WARD can only be the tonic to achieve our career progression like standard pay scales, CPSU cadre hierarchy, 30% SAB and more importantly our 3rd PRC in 2017.
The meeting commenced with the invocation by Shashidhar Murthy. Com Krishnamurthy Accounts Office and the District President SNEA Shimoga, presided over the meeting. In his presidential address Com Kriswhnamurthy expressed his firm belief in SNEA and its transparent policies and hence he is continuing in this mighty organization since he joined as JAO.

Com A N Gopalkrishana DS gave a brief report of district and reported that 80% executives are SNEA members.

Com Mohanbabu H Gombi explained the struggles SNEA has undertaken to come to these glorious heights particularly the 1640 scale, 6500 scale and the 3 benefits we got during absorption like pay scales, time bound promotions and point to point pay fixation in the IDA pay scale for the services rendered in DOT.
Com Giridhar said today he is proud to say himself as he belong to SNEA because, this year it could stop the long stay transfer in the cadre of JTOs and also ensure the rule 8 and request transfers also even by launching the state wide agitation programme. In the history of executive association, first time SNEA has got a written assurance by CGMT Karnataka on our agitation programme. Only SNEA can tackle issues with all its diplomacy, intelligence and if necessary by struggle also. For glimpses of ChickamglurTour Click here.
Hassan: On 3rd November, the meting arranged at GM Office was addressed by our CHQ President. Com A A Khan, in Hassan explained all the issues in detail and requested the members to make the first membership verification a grand success by each one our members to come to the pooling booth and executrices their votes without fail. Getting majority is already decided and it is only how much percentage SNEA is going to get. The bargaining power of the association firmly depends on the strength of the members and majority PSUs having single executive association here in BSNL, the multiplicity of the association has been a stumbling block for the resolution of the issues and the management should not take the undue advantage of this division. Therefore this verification should very closely move to the unification and it is possible by the grass root members to support the best association to represent them.
Com C Sanjay Kumar SDE presided over the function. The programme commenced wirth the invocation by Com Sahana Gupta.

Today Kolar is a model SNEA branch of DR JTOs in the country who stood like a rock when the heavy weights were trying to bury the future of direct recruits in Kolar for their vested interest.
Com Narain Nandkumar DS, in his speech how the lost ground by the predecessors was recouped by Com S B Nagavi DS in the year 2011 of course with the help of CHQ leaders like Com Jogi and Com Khan. During that time DRs were looked down by the other association but the re-vitalization of SNEA in Kolar has today grown to regain its power and is independently able to protect each and every member of SNEA by the politics of these local heavy weights.
Com Vasantkumar, founder member of AIGETOA, Ex CS of NTEA, accompanying the team addressed Kolar comrades and proudly told that he belong to Kolar the land of Masti Venkatesh Ayangar, Narayanmurthy, M Vishwewharaiah, CNR Rao, the Bharath Ratnas and hence firmly believed in the concept of social service. When he found that it is only under the umbrella of SNEA, the theme of working for the executive cadre is possible he has been very closely working for SNEA and actively involved in this association for the last 3 years and is feeling proud to be here. He appreciated all the members of SNEA Kolar for their unity under the banner of SNEA.
Com Munishekar CWC member addressed and told the members that being 2007 batch JTO he is previlaged to be working as Central Working Committee Member of this association for the last 3 years and has become part of the policy making body of SNEA.
Com Santosh Gowda SDE NOC Bangalore, another great leader in the team of DR executives, founder member of AIGETOA, who had been worked in various capacities in AIGETOA, CHQ and in Punjab circle, accompanying the team, also addressed the gathering at Kolar. He expressed his dissatisfaction on the fragmentation of leaders on common issues of executives presently leading to a great loss to all the executives. Com Santosh told the members how unity can bring miracles and told that most of the BSNL recruits are joining SNEA since they believe that it is only SNEA which can ultimately achieve standard Pay Scales, 30% SAB and CPSU cadre hierarchy and no other association can do it. So strengthening SNEA is like strengthening our future and appealed to support SNEA in the forth coming verification. For glimpses of Kolar Tour Click here.

Injustice to SC comrades:
CS writes to CGMT Karnataka Shri P Nagaraju on the injustice forced on 37 SC category JTOs by not including their names in the AIEL of 2001-2002 even after clear Hon CAT and Hon HC orders.

CS along with Com Pandurang Nayak JSS CHQ and Com Sadanand Makkannavar DS CO met Shri P Nagaraju CGMT Karnataka Circle and discussed the various issues. (1) Conduction of membership verification and preparation there of: CGMT informed that they are already on the job and are progressing as per schedules of BSNL CO. (2) Office Bearers in sensitive posts like AGM Admn of Bijapur and at other places: For free and fair conduction of Ist membership verification we requested Administration to issue clear guidelines to all instead of pointing out only the case one association. This approach of the administration was strongly protested and CGM assured to issue general instructions immediately. (3) Registration of request transfer of JTOs of STR/STP etc (Non recruiting Circles); We have once again strongly objected on the reported clarification sought by CGMT with BSNL CO. When it is very clear in the transfer policy, it is needless to get such clarification and the approach of GM admin is just to avoid the transfers though such JTOs are completed more than stipulated period of their stay in the respective units.CGM assured to check the case. (4) Looking After of GM Telecom Posts by the promotee Officers in the cadre of DGM. We have informed that two DGMs of BGTD are eligible to get the LA for GM Post and hence arrange to issue the orders accordingly. CGMT informed us that it will be looked into as per rules. (5) Settlement of TA bills by disallowing the Travel Expenses: We have elaborated the issues mentioned in our earlier letter and also the details of the discussions held with Sr GM Finance: CGM assured that he will also discuss with SR GM Finance and see that proper instructions are issued in this regard. (6) Supply of Stores: When CGM was asked about the status of Low Count Optical Cable, he has shown the details that even without low count cable also more than 1000 FTTH connections are provided. However he has assured that within a fortnight we will be getting the cable as per recent tender. Regarding other stores like DW, JW he will be pursuing the matter. (7) Cash less Indoor Medical Treatment: CS informed and handed over the letter on the mess created in handling this facility by the administration.

Sr GM assured to look into and also thinking to form a committee to minutely study the issue as this problem is prevailing only in our state and at other places, the scheme is very smoothly going on.and (2) Unilateral reduction in the TA bills by the administration particularly the Travel Expenses; on the pretext of non availability of bus tickets. CS brought to the notice of Sr GM that at some places sufficient Govt Transport is not available and moreover we are giving services to remote villages in NOFN and Mobile services and in such places no Govt Transport has reached. This practical problem is completely ignored by the authority handling and processing the bills.

Arbitrary finalization of TA Bills...
For a place, where there is no public transportation, how can the officer travel and execute the works and it is astonishing that the DA is allowed but travel charges are disallowed? On the mode of travel the officer has incurred, who bears the expenditure? When works are assigned and targets are fixed work, has to move, interruption have to be cleared and under this sort of a treatment by the management how can we expect the field officers continue with this sort of financial harassment?

UF Notice for Trade Union Actions Click here....
Today the CS of SNEA, AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA held meeting at circle office and decided to hold the programme in Bangalore at Circle office and in all SSAs at the SSA HQ.
All CSs appeal to make the programme a grnad success.
It is reliably learnt that CGMT Karnataka has finalised and approved the tender for procuring 3000 Kms of Low Count OF cable and the PO is likely to be placed now. We may expect the supply of said cable and comrdes of field units have to gear up for the provisioning of the FTTH connections.
For the last 6 months, the SSAs including the Bangalore Telecom District are not able to provide FTTH connections for want of the Low Count OF cable as expected and not able to meet the demand of customers. This issue we have several times raised before management at circle office at various levels and found that the much needed importance and urgency is not shown by the responsible officers involved in the process of finalizing the tender though all the concerned officers sit in the same circle office building. The concerned authorities are rather much interested in creating hurdles and delays but not treating the importance of the said item of store item in the field. Every day delay will count for the loss of revenue from the prospective customers. CS SNEA writes to CGMT Karnataka Shri P Nagaraju and GM Finance Smt Sumam Pillai for an urgent action.

General Body Meeting at Vijayapur:
The general body meeting of Vijayapur was held at Golden Height Hotel on 10th Sept 2016. Com Mangasuli District President Presided over the function. The meeting commenced with the invocation of Com Smt S H Kori and welcome address by Com B M Chalavaadi. Com Bijjargi DS gave brief account of the activities of the district and focused on the adverse effect of the non availability of regular GM to Bijapur and GM Belgum seldom visits the SSA. The lack of interest and motivation by the negative approach in deciding the decisions on the files has further deteriorated the functioning the SSA.
Comrades Ustad, Puranik, Karbhari, Panduranga, Parande and Dasar have highlighted the various problems like biased transfers by administration, delay in vendor payments, delay in disposing files, problems faced by transmission team, level one mtce of mobile service, shortage of critical items of stores and non availability of staff for the outdoor and cable maintenance and thereby difficulties in meeting the requirement of the SWASS programme.
Com S B Nagavi CS, Com Pandurang Nayak JSS CHQ, Com Quraishi ACS and senior leader of Bijapur have attended and addressed the gathering. Com Vivek Nayak DS AIGETOA also attended and wished the organization for colorful results in the forthcoming membership verification.
Com Nayak, young and future icon of SNEA gave a detailed account of the ongoing issues like (1) Standard Pay Scales (2) 30% SAB (3) CPSU cadre Hierarchy and the stand of SNEA on all these three vital issues and the basic reasons for that. How the contrary stands taken by others when the settlement was at its peak; had acted as a stumbling block. He has thanked for the realization of others at least now and joining SNEA in the present on going struggle. Had we been unanimously pursued only E2 and E3 in the first step as was proposed by SNEA we would have been successful by this time. Today the realistic approach of SNEA at this juncture of forthcoming 3rd PRC, is well recognised, understood by all the executives at the grass root level and the same is indicated by the huge support in the LHD and Dharna programmes in the entire country. If issues remain unsettled we may have intensify our struggle in the future. He thanked all executives and the members of SNEA in particular for the leading role played by them in making the struggle a great success.
Com Nagavi CS gave a detailed account of the circle activities and the stand taken in the transfer cases of the JTOs both Rule 8 and intra circle transfers and also the success story of blocking the long stay transfer of JTOs proposed by circle administration in the month of May/June 2016 at the instance of some other elements. The struggle is an eye opener, which protected the dignity of the executives. It is SNEA Karnataka which went on an organizational programme to ensure the assured Rule 8 transfers and the intra circle transfers which is settled, concluded to the logical end and at the same time blocked the conspiracy of others who wanted the long stay transfer of JTOs is enforced. It is ultimately ended with the written assurance of CGMT Karnataka that 64 rule-8 transfer will be considered and relieving will be ensured by the circle and this is a reality now that all the JTOs upt to WL No.67 were relieved by Karnataka Circle under Rule-8 transfer. We have not only ensured the assured 14 intra circle transfers but also ensured another 20 transfer orders are issued and reliving are done in most of the cases. Due to the sustained efforts, struggle and persuation the intra circle list of JTOs is reduced from 130 pending cases to only around 65 cases. SNEA believed in ensuring the justice of the legitimate issue coupled with proper policy and never promoted Tom Tick and Harry to get their membership when they are not eligible to get such benefit. SNEA stood by the comrades particularly the JTOs who were never dreamt that they would get their transfers this year. Many young JTOs though not identified with SNEA have also spoken personally to CS for his bold stand taken in the issue.
Today both at CHQ as well as at Circle and SSA level who are really involved into settling of the issues is being recognised by the base root members and of course this message is reaching from mouth to mouth; which ultimately will be quantified in the process of membership verification. It is the duty of the actrivists of SNEA to only pass on our policy, works done and struggles undertaken. All these informations are well explained in the manifesto published by CHQ. CS thanked the organisors for arranging the meeting in beautiful way.
The meeting concluded with the vote of thanks by Com Puranik.
Further improvement in the participation of Dharna on 7th Sept 2016. The leaders and members of SNEA took leading role and active interest in making the programme a grand success. We from SNEA are committed to resolve the issues on the agenda and is clearly manifested by our participation everywhere. ( Executives participated in Bangalore on 6th Sept 2016 SNEA 46%, AIGETOA 32% and AIBSNLEA 22% again on 7th Sept 2016 SNEA 56%, AIGETOA 24% and AIBSNLEA 20% are the indicators).
All the leaders of SSAs of Karnataka Circle have also took great initiative and held Dharna on both the days ensuring the participation of all the 3 associations and in many places 100% participation is reported. The major participation of the members of this association in the said Dharna is the key index that demonstrates the seriousness with which we are fighting to resolve the issues. Some young leaders like Com Tata Babu, Pallavi Latha, Ajaykumar have in fact appreciated and acknowledged the huge participation of the senior comrades so actively in the programme.
Comrades during the deliberations in our Bangalore Dharna, we have come across many doubts raised by members and leaders of all the associations have given clarifications on such queries. This will give a great opening up for the youngsters to understand the issues thoroughly and this effort of leaders will cement them into organizational action in the coming days of struggle.
The fights that we have done before the 1986 prior to 4th PRC and before 1996 prior to 5th CPC are the achievement to be written in the golden letters in the history of Telecom Engineers Trade Union History.
Before 4th PRC our scale was Rs.425-15-700 and in the normal course it would have been replaced with Rs.1400-40-2700. But the great vision and struggle of this association (SNEA- earlier JETA) we had a jump to Rs.16400-60-2900.
Before 5th PRC our scale was Rs.1400-40-2700 and in the normal course it would have been replaced with Rs.5500-150-9000. But the great vision and struggle of this association (SNEA- earlier JETA/TEOA) we had a jump to Rs.6500-200-10500.
And 5th CPC by the powerful presentation of this association (SNEA- earlier JETA/TEOA) to the CPC, also recommended for the elevation of the cadre from Group C (non-executive) cadre to the Gazetted Status (Executive).
Under the leadership of Com W Sheshagiri Rao, it laid down several mile stones as above including 12 year 24 year time bound lateral advancements and huge JTO to SDE functional promotions to the tune of 8000 promotions at one stroke.
When DOT was getting converted into BSNL, it only this organization which was not ready to get absorbed into BSNL just taking Rs.2000 PM extra amount without knowing the three fundamental questions to be clarified by BSNL.
(1) Prospects of promotion avenues in BSNL
(2) The weightage for the service rendered in DOT
(3) The pay scales in the IDA pattern for the absorbed executives.
This organization has single handedly fought the issues and taken oath from each members of SNEA that we will not sign the absorption form while others were on the toes to get absorbed by accepting Rs.2000/- offer. Though we were singled out we did not give up our struggle. It is on this result of the foundational struggle; today we are able to get point to point fixation in IDA scale, 4-6 years TBU and upgraded pay scales ie instead of E1 ( Rs.8600) to E1a ( Rs.9850) for JTO/JAO E2 (10750) to E2a (Rs.11875) for SDEs, etc., Comrades remember except SNEA ( Earlier TEOA) none were with us. But Com G L Jogi and more than 4000 ishfollowers under the banner of BSNLEA supported Com W Sheshagiri Rao in his single handed struggle to achieve above mile stones after the formation of BSNL.
Then in 2003 in Kanyakumari these two organizations having profound belief in welfare of the executives and who were knowing that struggle and struggle only can be best tool to archive our goals; joined to form a new Association called SNEA. The Tiger of Kashmir Comrade G L Jogi took the captaincy of the new team at Kanyakumari and Com W Sheshagiri Rao relinquished the post of GS after his three terms.
During the period of Comrade G L Jogi the implementation of the TBU policy, the smooth promotion from the cadre of SDE to DE and various issues were got settled.
Thereafter, due to multiplicity of associations, multiplicity of Ideas, coupled with various court cases and unfortunately lack of vision and cheap popularity have over raided in the minds at some corner and BSNL started to take advantage of this situation.
Under such situation also SNEA took a very tough stand. We said in clear terms to the BSNL management to settle standard pay scale issue ( E2 and E3) alone and separately and get it approved before we move forward to 3rd PRC. We tried our best to explain the complexities if it is linked with cascading. But the views of others the reasons best known to them criticized our stand and taken a different view. Even on CPSU cadre Hierarchy and 30% SAB also we have our view very clear.
Today all have understood the game plan of the BSNL and DOT management.
The brief analyzes of the history tells us very clearly that the more we united the near will be our success. Despite SNEA leadership being ridiculed we never gave up our principle of struggle, it is SNEA which initiated this struggle and is leading the same. SNEA would like to state that what we say we will do and our marching forward is for the purpose of the benefit of the cadre in its entirety and not to appease any section of persons.
We not only thank SNEA, but also the members of the our sister organizations both AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA for their participation and hope to maintain unity.
