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.

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.
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.
Rule 8 request transfer list in the cadre of JTOs is published by CGMT Karnataka duly updated as on date. To view list click here..<<1>> <<2>> <<3>> Any discrepancies, missing etc may be brought to the notice of CS immediately.

We have informed him that our difficulites especially in Bangalore also to be resolved. PGM BGTD has assurred us the meeting after 21st Jan 2014 and we will react only after that meeting. We have observed in BGTD that the top managment like PGM/GM/DGMs have to reciprocate to our basic requirements so that the officers in the field can focuss the issues on the problems of the subscribers to redress their issues. We have took a very strong objection to the continuance of the Office bearers of other association still continuing in the sensitive positions like administration/handling transfer and posting cases right from circle office to SSA level despite clear instructions from the corporate office and no action being taken by the circle administration to change their section.

We have discussed in detail and assurred to supply diary 2014 on demand by the BSNL. We have also given alternative proposal to authorise the field units to purchase the same trhough temperory advance to resolve the issue of other association claims on similar lines. We have also submitted our letter in writing. Further CGMT held discussions with us on Friday, reqeusted to supply at the rate of Rs.140/- per diary. We have agreed for the proposal. Finally CGMT was kind to issue instructions to procure the diaries locally through temperory advance as suggested by us.
We therefore request all the members of SNEA to collect the diaries printed by us from the District Secretaries of all SSA and from the Branch Secretaries of BGTD. The District Branch will issue the receipt to individual members/purchaser and make the consolidated payment to the circle.The printed Diaries will reach the concerned DS/BS by the end of Dec 2014.
In view of the good gesture shown by CGMT, we have decided to supply the Diary at Rs.140 per diary though our printing cost is Rs.160 per Diary as we are providing the diary with Rexine Zacket and information of all telephone numbers of CO and important SSA telepone numbers. We are also printing the technical and important HR information in the diary. This Diary is printed at Circle level. It is a very important companion for your day today work and in a improved version of last year diary incorporating almost all suggetions from the feed of last year. Since we have printed 2500 diaries there is no question of shortage.

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.
