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. Even the stand taken is contrary to the RTI documents. These JTOs are deprived of their due promotion for the last 13 years. For details click here..

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. CGM informed that he has already instructed the SSAs to clear all pending bills of hospitals. However we have requested to take action and ensure that the facility provided serves the purpose of the employees. For letter click here.

Yesterday CS met Sr GM Finance and discussed on the issue of (1) Alarming Status of mess created in the Indoor Patient Treatment in the empanelled hospitals in entire Karnataka State under the BSNL MRS scheme- CS brought to the notice of Sr GM Finance, pendancy of hospital bills, unilateral reduction in the bills claimed by the hospitals, inflated claims by empanelled hospitals and the sufferings of the BSNL staff and their families. 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. CS made over the detailed letter regarding the issue and containing the proof of such non-professional incidents to her. Sr GM assured to immediately take corrective action in the matter.

CS expressed thanks and gratitude to Madam, for the positive response shown in the issues and is hopeful of immediate action.

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.

CS AIBSNLEA Com Hiremath, CS AIGETOA Com Sunder Raj and CS SNEA Com S B Nagavi have spoken on the ocassion

Com M H Gombi, ACS, Com M H Hiremugadur ACS, Com Jayaprakash Javali DS BGTD, Com B Ramesh Ex DS BGTD, Comrade Thippesh, SNEA, Com Vasantakumar, SNEA, Com Tata Babu SNEA were the prominent speakers on the occasion from SNEA side.
