The dispute on the interse seniority of seniority list number 6 and 7 between the seniority and LDCE candidates gets decided in favour of the 75% seniority candidates by the Hon Supremce Court. The notional benefits claimed by the LDCE candidates is not extended to others except 124 Karnataka candidates in OA No.181/2009 of CAT Bangalore. For supreme court order click here...

There is no benefit of examination to (1509-124) 1989 batch JTOs. The JTOs of Batch 1990 to 1994, suffer pay loss compared to their own batchmates who have either failed in the examination or not appeared except 124 SDEs of Karnataka Batch.

More than 2500 LDCEans successful in 2007-08 and another 2500 LDCEans successful in 2012 will also not get the benefit of interse seniority in the ratio 2:1 (3:1)as per the above supreme court order.

BSNL management is actively considering to extend the LDCE concept for JAO to AO promotion also ???

Com Shrinivas Murthy SDE Kolar SSA is appriciated by CGMT Karnataka during the inspection of the section of Com Shrinivas Murthy. Com Murthy had brought pride to our executive cadre of Kolar SSA.

While congratulating Com Shrinivas Murthy for the appriciation he deserved and received, we also acknowledge the initiation of Shri R K Misraji for recognising an SDE of his good works. Of late such sort of motivation was totally missing in the company which is brought in by our CGM Shri Misraji. In the process CGMT has given blue print of his plans in the future.

We appeal to all executives especially our members to kindly go through the instructions and give utmost importance on the points of good service and best revenue growth. At the same time we would like to declare that this association is committed to take up any issue; of your difficulty to the notice of CGMT, which you are encountering in the process of achieving such tasks and put our full efforts to resolve them.

The case of notional fixation and the interse seniority have been heard in Hon Supreme Court before a three member division Bench headed by Hon CJI Court in Hall No.1 of Supreme Court of India. The argument continued for almost a day from morning 1030 hours to 1600 hours.

Notioanl case:

It was held by the court that the out come of Santana Kriashnan case cannot be compared to the case of Premkumar because of the fact that both are governed by differant RRs. Santankrishnan by 1981 RRs and Premakumar by 1996 RRs. In 1981 RRs provision existed for yearly examination as well as to accord seniority in the ratio 2:1 between the seniority (qualified) and LDCE quota. Since these two provisions are not there in the 1996 rule, the court denied to extend the notional benefit in BSNL Vs Dubey extended by the Hon Cat Jabalpur and declared that Premkumar judgement is bad in law and hence cannot be extended further to others. The court also observed that as such the case of Premkumar and 123 others has attained finality even by the judgement of apex court the benefit given to them is protected.

Seniority Case:

In seniority case the Hon Appex Court took the view that when two processes of promotion are not held simultaniously and held on differant dates whatever may be the reason; if there is no specific rule to the contrary; the benefit of inter se seniority cannot be extended to the date anterior to the date of actual joining to the post for which one is promoted." Either in 1996 RRs or 2002 RRs, the clause of inter se seniority is not provided. The quota of "75% seniority and 25% LDCE" limits itself only to the extent of getting eligibility to get promoted on seniority quota in 75% or to get selected as SDE under 25% by writing the examination. In the absence of clear provision for the inter se seniority in the RR naturally the date of joining should only be the basis to decide the seniority position between the two groups.

As BSNL had extended 3:1 seniority and also notional fixation in 124 SDEs of Karnataka, it was our right to fight to protect it and exend the notional benefits to others. We have fought for it, fought upto the end even at Hon SC with great constraints; but unfortunately it was not our day. We respect and Honour the outcome.



The cat is out of Bag.

On 2-4-2013, SNEA CHQ published the fact of the Dismissal of a court case WP 16102/2011 and 26246/2011 in Hon Chennai HC filed by an executive association. The said association on 3-4-3013, categorically denied they have not filed the case which ultimately delayed the promotion of their own members and report published by SNEA CHQ is false. Today the Karnataka branch of the said association claims in their website that they had filed the case in the interest of their members. What is the real fact ???

Clarity in implementing the JTO Transfer orders:

Many JTOs under transfer orders have been contacting CS regarding their relieving as the SSA heads were reluctant to relieve them as no substitutes have been shown in the transfer order. In fact this association had been pursuing the administration to show clear substitutes in the original order. CS met DGM Admn yesterday and today and had a detailed discussion on this confusion. Finally the adminstration has issued the clear order which helps the JTOs under transfer orders to get themselves relieved. For concerned order click here. We are thankful to Shri Kannulkar DGM Staff and Admn for the timely action in the matter.

The posting order of the JTO trainees is also issued. For orders click here. We congratulate and thank the JTOs trainees for having joined at various places. SNEA is committed to take up their issues at every level including their transfers as per their turn. When the JTOs who were waiting for transfer since 2010/2011; any right thinking association has to take up their issues on priority and SNEA has done it. It may be recalled that when the examination (LICE) was delayed in Karnatka State, due to court case; CS SNEA along with the auspirant TTAs at Bangalore met Sh R Chanrdamouli Ex Sr GM and requested for early hearing of the matter by filing the MA. CS then continuously persued the issue till it is decided by the Court.

Rgarding SDE to DE LO orders also CS met DGM Admn as the Sr GM HR is on medial leave. DGM informed that the fileis ready and today they will take the approval of CGMT. The order is likely to be issued tomorrow or on Monday.

Great Success of SNEA Kerala..

Agitation Called off after the written assurance from the managment on all the contentious issues raised. We salute and congratulate the comrades of Kerala for their tolerance, courage, commitment, determination in enduring the pressure from the managment and also the most unwanted interference of other non-ethical groups.

Particularly one group beated their drums in favour of SNEA on one day and against SNEA on another day. Another group felt as if we are fighting agaisnt them. Most unfortunate is that these organisations have forgotten that they are representatives of the memabers who have been the targets of the same management. Who stalled them to fight when it is detrimental to their interest? Our fight was not and will never be against any other association.

We believe in unity, unity of executives. We believe in working and working for the just cause of every executiave and for the betterment of the company. This has been manifestly exhibited by the comrades of Kerala. When our leaders of Kerala took a stand to fight, all members stood like a rock behind them not for one day but for two months and an historical HUNGER STRIKE for unbroken 37 days.

More than 1300 members protested by their unique action of proceeding on leave for one week indicating their unhappiness about the hostile managment. Comrades members will follow if they have faith in their leadership otherwise it would have been just another drama of Jantar Manter. We are deeply pained and felt unhappy the way our parteners of the United Forum of Executives behaved. Comrades here the fight was against the autocratic approach. Here the fight was to protect the basic rights of executives. Of course our fight is to protect BSNL. Our fight was peaceful and democratic.

One must think that the members at the base root level are capable of understainding everything. We cannot fool them once or twice but not at all times.

SNEA believes in its hard work, struggle, the sustained struggle comrades. No struggle goes a waste. Every struggle is a foundation stone for our next success. Our leaders like Com Sheshagiri Rao, Com G L Jogi have trained us in that line by their untiring works and selfless service to this organisation. Com George Varghees our beloved CS Kerala has been emerged as our new trend setter for SNEA; Of course with the committed support of all Kerala Comrades.

We also place on record, the role played by CS BSNLEU Kerala and his support at the right time, the true solidarity shown to us.

Thank u Com George and your team. Long live Executives unity. Long live SNEA ...

S B Nagavi

For and on behalf of Karnataka SNEA.

JTO Request transfers:

Our principled efforts of getting JTO request transfers consequent on reporting of trainees is finally achieved. We had been pursuing this for the last 2 month.Yesterday again CS had met CGMT and requested for early issue of orders. Today orders are issued. For orders click here.<<part 1>> << part 2>> . We are thankful to CGMT KTK in his firm stand on the commitment.


CS meets CGMT Sh R K Misraji, Sr GM HR/Admn and requests for the immediate release of JTOs request transfer order.

CS also delivered the interium stay order of Hon CAT Bangalore in respect of the transfer/struck off DS BGTD and requests for immediate implimentation. Hon CAT is pleased to keep both orders of transfer and struck off under suspension for 14 days and call on the case on 7-8-2014. For stay order click here .

Comrades we were really not interested to bring the issue to this stage. But certain other forces started throwing stones outside; sitting inside the glass house.

For the kind information of our members the saga of events are detailed below...

More than 14 office bearers of an association on their promotion (order dated 19-7-2013)got retention under the name of immunity vide order dated 31-7-2013.<<view order>>

On scruitiny 4 of them were got cancelled on 13-8-2013 as they ceased to be the office bearers << view order>>

SNEA KTK on noticing the name of DS SNEA BGTD in long stay list represented to management to delete the name of DS on 17-3-2014 to maintain equal treatment to all associations << view our letter>>

CGMT Ktk negated our claim arbitrarily on 21-3-2014 << View CGMT letter>>

When about 10 members of the other association have been extended such benefit who are the office bearers even for more than 1 year, how can it be denied to us? This issue we have raised before CGMT on 27-3-2014 << view our letter>>

On June BSNL CO further extends immunity upto 31-3-2015 clearly stating that the extention is on imunity grounds. These executives are enjoying the immunity for more than one year ( 19-7-2013 to 31-3-2015). << view order>>

All these facts were in detail brought to the notice of the CGMT Karnataka with all relevant records and in addtion to discussion sumitted detailed letter on 3-7-2014 which is self explanatory. << view letter>>

Unfortunately for reasons best known to the managment , our civilised, moderate and gentlemen approaches have failed to bring the management to extend equallity and fair play. Management miserably failed to maintain a level plying role when the membership verification is on.

On 24-7-2014, suddenly PGM BGTD struck off our DS without making over the formal charge as per proceedure.

SNEA having no other option was hance compelled to file a case to get justice in Hon CAT Bangalore, admitted vide OA 905/2014 and granted interium stay.

It recalls us again on our sustained struggle of Kolar case.

Comrades march ahead. The tradition of SNEA is to struggle and work for the betterment of the welfare of the members and executives that only takes the organisation to its glory. Of course we never lag behind in supportiong management in the steps to improve service delivery and development of our beloved company particularly with changed gaurd of administration in Bangalore.



CS had met CGMT, Sr GM and DGM of circle office on various issues especially on the relieving of the SDEs on request transfers and held detailed discussions. Now our efforts are yeilding results. All SDEs of differant SSAs are relieved/taking action to relieve.

We have been pursing for the considderation of the request tranfer of JTOs as per the waiting list maintained and to correct the discrepancies in the list if any. Now Sr GM admn assurred that shortly the transfrer orders will be issued.

We have also met PGM Finacne and held a strong protest on the delay in issuing the Time Bound Upgradation of some of the JTOs for want of internal clarification from the accounts section. As per our earlier request she had already initiated action and shortly she will submint the report to staff/HRD section.

CS will be on tour to Delhi for 3 days from 20-7-2014 to 22-7-2014. For any emergency members may contact Com Hiremugadur ACS ( 9449854786)


CGMT Karnataka issues instructions to relieve all the SDEs who are under transfer orders. For letter click here..


CS Com S B Nagavi along with ACS Com M H Gombi, CVP Com Ithal, COS Com Gudi, DS BGTD Com Ramesh, DP BGTD Com Virupakshaiah have met CGMT Shri R K Misraji on 15-07-2014 and protested on the discriminative and pick and choose attitude of SSAs in relieving the SDEs on long stay transfer ( In Hubli SSA even the long stay SDEs are not relieved so far ) and on the discriminative appraoch of the management in respect of retaining of Executives on imunity grounds. We urged to take a uniform stand to avoid the unrest and heart burn among the executives. People have started occupying the posts of union office bearers for the sake of transfer immunity. We have also requested for the issue of JTO request transfer orders at the earliest. CGM immediately called the AGM Staff and issued instructions to Hubli SSA to relieve such officers immediately.



CHQ News.....

DPE out rightly rejects the proposal sent by DOT recently to allow BSNL to introduce replacement scales of E1A and E2A for JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs in BSNL based on the decision of the BSNL Board.

This Association has had been having consistent interaction with the concerned officers in DPE for the last about three months to impress upon them and convince them not to take an exception to the proposal of DOT to allow BSNL to introduce non standard IDA replacement scales of E1A and E2A in BSNL for JTO/SDEs in the context of guidelines issued by DPE to all the CPSUs not to extend non standards IDA scales. DPE has further directed DOT to correct any aberration, if at all, in this regard.

With the rejection of proposal by DPE, our demand to extend standard IDA scales of E2 and E3 for JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs gets strengthened since BSNL Management very recently during our organizational actions made a firm commitment to us that it will consider our demand of extending standard pay scales of E2 and E3 with an open mind in case DPE takes a contrary view to the decision of BSNL Board to allow extending replacement IDA scales of E1A and E2A to JTOs, SDEs etc. This is a very positive development and surely brings us closer to resolution of our demand of extending standard pay scales of E2 and E3 for JTOs, SDEs etc.

This Association has had series of discussions with concerned officers in DPE on this issue. CHQ president and GS had a detailed discussion on this issue with Secy/DPE and JtSecy/DPE nearly three months before and succeeded in impressing upon them to reiterate to DOT that BSNL must switch over to standard IDA scales approved by Govt. based on the recommendations of 2nd PRC and immediately correct any anomalous situation that prevails in BSNL with regard to existence of non standard IDA scales. This is a big milestone as far as resolving the issue of extending standard scales of E2 and E3 to JTO/JAOs, SDE/AOs etc is concerned and gives us huge strategic leverage to get the issue resolved.

Shri Prakash Rao, DGM Staff and Shri Gopinathan AGM Staff were also present. We have discussed the following issues.

(1) Delete the arbitrary clause in the promotion order of Shri A D Kulkarni DGM MS BG. We took a very strong objection for the unwarranted clause in the order which tentamounts to modification of the corporate office order and inturn giving no factual benefit to the officer. Sr GM assurred to look into the matter.

(2) Issue of Mutual transfer order case of Com Bhuvanlal Suryavamshi JTO BM. Sr GM assurred to issue the orders. ( The case is now approved by GM and sent to CGM for infn)

CS along with Com Balakrishna Aithal CVP yesterday met DGM Staff Shri Praksh Rao, as Sr GM Admn was on leave and disussed important and urgent issues.

(1) Relieving of SDEs on transfer: Some of the SSAs are reluctant to relieve the SDEs who are on transfer on the ground of shartgage of executives. The transfers were done after ensuring the equal number of strenght of SDE/JTOs in all SSA. Hence we have insisted that CO will take suitable action to ensure for the relieving of the SDEs under transfer orders.

(2) Removal of arbitrary clause in the promotion order of Shri A D Kulkarni DGM MS BG. Without any authority an arbitrary clause has been added in the order which is very strongly opposed by us as it will have adverse bearing on the last pay drawn of the officer who is due to be retired in aug 2014.

Regarding the calculation of the Sanctioned and working strengths of SDEs/JTOs we requesated that the details be called for from all the SSAs so as to avoid confusion after the actual transfers normally being done in the month of March 2014.


Meeting with Director HRD and CMD BSNL.



Team of SNEA leaders with CS SNEA Karnataka has met Director HRD Shri A N Rai and respected CMD BSNL Shri R K Upadhya during theri visit to Bangalore on 29-01-2014 and brought to their notice the resolution of urgent issues related to Standard Pay Scale, Pay anmolies, the shortage of JTO/SDEs in Karnataka Circle and many other issues. We have thanked CMD for the support he has rendered especially to Karnataka Circle which was instrumental in improving the revenue in Karnataka Circle under the leadership of Shri R K Misraji CGMT Karnataka.

Use of IDLE and unused materials/equipments:

It is been reported on several occasions from members of this association that the Unaccounted and Idle materials like MW Eqpts, Tower Materials, PLB Pipes etc are laying in private premises since long time.One of the reasons is that the direct delivery of installation materials to site and afterwords non commissioning of that site due to one or the other reason and materials dispatched are laying there idle. As CGM is taking all out efforts to make better use of Idle materials, this association is keen to supplement this act of CGM with collection of data of materials. Hence all the DS/Active members are requested to collect the details of such materials and forward the same to CS by 1-02-2014. 

The purpose of collecting this information is only to make better use of Idle assets.

To fill up on line click here...


We are the trend setters:

Com P Thippanna being entrusted the charge of TDM Bidar relinquishes from the post of DS Bidar. He has resigned to the post of DS.

It is also a history that our District President of BGTD Com Ranganayakulu also gave resignation to the post of DP before assuming the charge of DGM Admn BGTD. We believe in working for the membership and not to use the official positions for the upliftment of union interests.

But it is unfortunate that some organisations have made it a principal to elect as District President and Circle President etc., who are incharge of transfer and postings like AGM HR or DGM in charge of transfer and postings so that they can mis-use the official position for one upmanship and increase their membership. Further it is not only unfortunate but even shamful that even after clear instructions from BSNL CO these officers have neither resigned from their union posts nor sought change of official position but still continuing with the duel roles. On the contrary the management is also allowing these officers to continue in such posts.

Now we will be compelled to take up the matter with all appropriate levels including the organisational actions to stop this irregularity. Members are requested to get ready for the organisational actions in the matter.

Key note Address delivered by Comrades S B Nagavi CS at the open session of 5th Circle Conference held at Belgaum on 9th Nov 2013

Belgaum Conference Report:

Brief report of 5th Circle Conference of SNEA(I) Karnataka held  on 7th, 8th and 9th Nov 2013 at Institute of Engineers’ Hall Belgaum.

Under the excellent arrangement of our Belgaum Comrades, the Conference was commenced with the Pre-CEC on 7th Nov 2013. The pre-CEC was presided by Com B S Venkatesh Murthy. The reports of Circle Secretary and the accounts of the Association have been presented by Com S B Nagavi CS and Com C R Sureshkumar CT respectively and have been approved by the CEC after deliberations.

8th Nov 2013:

Delegate Session:  In the morning at 0900 hours, the SNEA flag was hoisted by Circle President Com Venkatesh Murthy in the presence of the CHQ leaders Com W Sheshagiri Rao, Com G L Jogi, Com K Sebastin , Com K Padmanabha Rao, Com Pandurang Nayak. The delegates have taken slogans as BSNL Zindabad, SNEA Zindabad and Our Struggle Zindabad.
Then the delegate session commenced with the welcome address by Com Arun Chavali, the DS of host district. Com B S Venkatesh Murthy Circle President conducted the proceedings and advised all the deligates to actively participate in the deliberation, to be precise and make the conference a great success. Com S B Nagavi CS has presented the Circle Secretary’s report which was adopted with single voice from all the delegates. Com C R Sureshkumar Circle Treasurer presented the the statement of accounts and was approved by the house with an appreciation of the utility of SNEA Bhavan in good manner.

All the District Secretaries have attended the conference and submitted their report on the activities of the District Branches, membership etc and more specifically on the difficulties that they have been facing in the field on O&M issues. Then in the delegate session issues like Standard Pay Scale for Executives, 30% superannuation, one time up gradation of TTA-Officiating JTOs and recent BSNL CO orders on denial of declining of promotions-options were discussed. The issues relating to the service matters were also discussed in detail. Many young JTOs have actively participated in the deliberations and given vital suggestions on the HR issues in BSNL and how HR issues reflect on the performance.

CHQ President Com G L Jogi has addressed the delegate session and elaborated the role of JETA, JTOA, TEOA and now SNEA in the upliftment of the cadre issues raised by us and most importantly the success on the issues raised. How our association has played its key role in resolving the issue of 1640 pay scale, upgrading the cadre to Gazatted status, our struggle to get point to point pay fixation on absorption to BSNL, the career growth of 4-5 years promotions through the legal process when BSNL denied them by merely offering us Rs.2000-00. He has drawn the attention of the delegates for the unity, faith, confidence in this mighty organisation and the patience of our members that they have shown while we were in the middle of the struggle.  Now we are in the process of struggling for the standard pay scales on a war footing to avoid the anomalous situations in the next pay revision. Leadership is committed to fight and resolve this issue and the members should exhibit their unity and 100% participation in the struggle as the issue being not so simple.
