The Positive role of AIGETOA and The Adverse Role of the so called recognised groups in the revival process of BSNL

Dear Colleagues,

Here onwards we shall be presenting a free and fair Report card of the majority and support association for last 3.5 years vis-a-vis the role of AIGETOA for securing the rights of BSNL Recruits as well as executives.

Today we are analysing the role of AIGETOA/AIBSNLEA/SNEA in the revival process.

Both the associations (SNEA and AIBSNLEA) tried their level best to derail the revival process by opposing VRS, Land Monetisation etc. (These things are on record). AIGETOA was initially part of AUAB and it never let AUAB oppose the VRS on AUAB platform. We then delinked ourselves from AUAB when they started drifting from the core issues and things were not being towed in line with what was decided specially WRT SAB. Thereafter, AIGETOA started a separate campaign in support of the revival process. With positive support on the issues from one major association of BSNL in the form of AIGETOA, the basic foundation stone for the revival process was laid down by the government of India. This fact was mentioned by Hon'ble MOC during his press briefing also that associations are supporting this demand - AIGETOA was the only association which supported VRS. The role of AIGETOA is also clear from the fact that one of the leading News Channel NDTV gave space to our General Secretary in its all India prime time at 9:00 PM. None of the so called major corners and claimants found any space on any media news channel at this magnitude. We are surprised to note that one association is audaciously claiming playing a major role in bringing this revival process while their opposition to the revival steps of GoI is on record captured in their own website.

It was the support of AIGETOA to the VRS process which enabled BSNL to survive this COVID-19 mess also as the salary burden was hugely down.

The support to revival process of AIGETOA has laid an important stepping-stone towards achievement of E2 scales for JTO/JAO/Equivalent cadre and E3 scales for SDE/AO/Equivalent Cadre. In MTNL, pay scales are linked with the Pension contribution by Government. So it becomes more important that a BSNL Recruit Association and a BSNL Recruit should represent the issues of executives of BSNL to management as well as government as during merger of MTNL/BSNL, settlement of Pay Scale will have to be done and we don't want Pay scales issue to be compromised in lieu of Pension Revision etc. So, a BSNL Recruit representing the issue becomes far more important and hence AIGETOA becomes all the more important further.

Hence, Please Choose AIGETOA - The only Association which can ensure your rights.

Lets Unite for Change Lets unite For Progress 
Lets Unite for Settlement of Our Long Awaited Rights of PPP.
A stronger AIGETOA...A stronger BSNL Recruit, A stronger Young Force, A stronger BSNL.


Questions which every BSNL Recruit Should ask from GS of the proclaimed SENA... who did nothing except for blaming AIGETOA for his failures and acting as a News Reader on behalf of management for all these 3.5 years.

1. Please tell what you discussed with management during your meeting with restructuring cell? Why you did not disclosed the details of your meeting to members. Why you disclosed it only after when AIGETOA brought to common domain after its agenda meeting with management. Please tell all why you are not opposing the reduction of posts openly...? Why you are justifying and agreeing to the stand of Management that they will reduce posts...?

2. Please inform your members what is the current sanctioned Strength in SDE cadre, DE cadre, AO Cadre, CAO cadre and whether it can cater to the need of executives waiting for their promotions...?

3. Please tell that despite agreeing on your website that there is possibility of DPC happening for JTO to SDE, you have never gone to management for issuance of these promotions. Why You don't want youngsters to be promoted...?

4. Please tell us why your beloved policy - The half baked CPSU Hierarchy could not be implemented till date despite your association and having majority tag all these years and despite your claim to be the so called mightiest association. Also honestly tell all what management told to you with regard to implementing this half-baked CPSU Policy on 9th June 2020 and why an approved policy is being talked about being taken to Management Committee - For implementation or For Rejection...?

5. Do you agree that AIGETOA is most Powerful Association in BSNL as you blame AIGETOA for your failures? What you were doing with the strength of 22000 members (Now reduced to 11500) all these 3.5 years except for using their membership fee against the interest of BSNL recruits.?

6. Please tell us what happened to your fighting spirit and resolve to struggle till last breath. You Served Notice for agitation for implementation of CPSU policy. You Kept it postponing and postponing and then finally dumped it...What happened to your might..? Why you did not dared to launch any agitation on this...Do you remember that last successful agitation was done by you only when AIGETOA was part of it... There again you betrayed all using your Recognized Tag...and surrendering before management.

7. Please tell us while strongly advocating for CPSU policy for BSNL Recruits, Why You went for promotions of your contemporaries through existing post based mechanism just two days before the so called golden date of 01.07.2018...? Why you were afraid to impose this new policy on your contemporaries. Why you want to experiment with future of BSNL Recruits only...? Also tell us why Internal Fast Track mechanism, which was part of the CPSU discussion, is not part of this CPSU policy and Instead External MT recruitment finds a place. Please tell us why you have not ensured E2 scales for JTOs in your proposed beloved CPSU policy. Please tell how many more compromises you made for ensuring the wrongful promotion of your batch mates by way of matching saving in a single day.

8. Please tell us despite yourself having a recognized tag, you allowed no BSNL Recruits to be promoted during June 2018...Even Category Promotions were not executed because they were having BSNL Recruits. Why you opposed moves of AIGETOA with respect to issuance of DPC promotions for JTO to SDE promotions.? Why you got 5400 SDE posts eaten away and left it for AIGETOA to get it restored.?

9. Please tell us why you filed a review petition against the Hon'ble Ernakulum High court judgment. Why You opposed 1:1 ratio seniority between DRs and PRs. Why you got Supernumerary JTOs placed senior to DRs and LICE JTOs.. Why you want BSNL Recruits to remain down in the seniority lists..(all LICE JTOs as well DR JTOs)... Why you are against the interests of BSNL Recruits.?

10. Please tell us whether SDE Seniority should be framed on Date of Joining Basis or Vacancy Year Basis.? Your one of the Gurus have openly criticized AGETOA for pursuing for Vacancy Year Based Seniority fixation in SDE cadre. What is the stand of SNEA on this issue. Please come out openly with your stand instead of hobnobbing silently behind the closed doors with management.

11. Please tell us why you want management to give 2 percent less SAB when you were part of the discussions where management agreed to give 7 percent more.?

12. Please tell us why you agreed for JTO RR 2014 with E1 as Pay scale.? Please tell all that AIGETOA was the only association which opposed degradation of Pay scales in new RRs..

13. Please tell how many cases you and your activists have filed for stopping LDCE promotions. Also Tell why your CHQ OBs went to management for stopping the issuance of LDCE 2015 promotions. Also tell how many of your OBs filed court cases to derail the combined LDCE notification which was being published for conducting LDCE for four VY in year 2016 which would have benefited all youngsters.

14. Please Tell all whether you accept 9470 as the strength in AGM cadre or less..

15. Also tell us are you willing to allow a BSNL Recruit to become General Secretary / All India President of your Association. We have seen you offering peanuts in the form of DS/FS/CS posts. Are you willing to work under the leadership of a BSNL Recruit.

If each BSNL Recruit can find a justified and honest answers from the proclaimed SENA else they should all come together and unite under the umbrella of AIGETOA.

GS AIGETOA letter to CMD BSNL regarding AGM/DE (Telecom) strength

GS AIGETOA writes to CMD BSNL regarding apparent misrepresentation of facts by GM(Restg) in the ongoing restructuring exercise by not presenting correct strength of AGM/DE (Telecom) grade. The sanctioned strength of AGM(T) should be counted as 9470 (5303 + 4167) for all calculation purposes and there should not be any reduction in posts of any promotional cadre by virtue of restructuring -Further we demand for free and fair enquiry into the whole process adopted in June-2018 for creation of thousands of AGM posts in a single day.

An appeal to support the fight against Covid-19

Dear Friends,

AIGETOA Kerala appeal to all members and well wishers to support a task for Providing Protective Kits to BSNL CSCs/ External Clusters in Kerala circle. In its CEC meeting held on 09-05-2020 AIGETOA Kerala decided to appeal for voluntary financial support from members and well wishers in BSNL, inorder to procure and distribute protective kits ( consisting of protective shield , mask , glove , sanitizer & handwash ) to units who frequently deals with public . We are sure that all our members and the like minded employees will come forward to support this noble cause to give a support within BSNL during this pandemic time where sanitization / hygiene is the most important concern. Even though the support is voluntary, we expect a minimum of Rs 1000/- from each personal which will surely point to make a gesture of solidarity to those employees / workers in these BSNL units across Kerala. The amount may be handed over to concerned DS/DP/DFS and Let’s contribute unitedly and make the program a success.


CEC Meeting through Video Conference

The Circle Executive Committee meeting of AIGETOA Kerala was held on 09-05-2020 through Zoom Video Conference. The circle executive committee members and various DS/DP/DFS attended the meeting across Kerala. The CEC meeting was chaired by Circle President Sri. Muhammadali and lasted for almost three hours where various agenda points discussed elaborately. Our All India President Sri. Ravishil Verma also graced the meeting with his presence for a short period of time .

1.Covid -19 related support by AIGETOA Kerala
CEC appreciated the support of our members on different platforms with regard to Covid-19 related support works. Many members gave their share to PMcares/ CMDRF , financial support for needy ones locally, food / grocery supplies , activities to recharge FRCs at Airports etc. On further continuing solidarity to discharge the responsibility, the meeting decided to call for a voluntary contribution from members/ well wishers to provide kits to all BSNL CSCs / external clusters /units in Kerala Circle who deals with public or customers directly . The kit will contain Masks/ Face shields/ Gloves/Sanitizers/handwash etc which will help for fight against this pandemic by ensuring sanitization for employees and customers. ACS Sir.Binoj, VP Sri. Nikesh and CFS Sri. Maxmillan are nominated to coordinate the same.

2.Status and submission of SSA account statements ( FY 19-20 ) for auditing purpose.
Circle Finance Secretary Sri. Maxmilan informed that the circle account details are already submitted for auditing purpose as directed from CHQ. Now various SSA account statements ( FY 19-20 ) for auditing purpose are pending. The details are already shared by Malppuram, Palghat, Thrissur and Ernakulam. Remaining SSA DS/DFS have detailed present status and it is informed that they will share the data within a week.

3.Obstacles in 4G tender & 4G rollout
The committee shared its concern over the obstacles happened in 4G tender which is long awaited for BSNL and its customers. Circle Secretary Sri. Saheer explained the issues in the same and appraised about various initiatives from CHQ side for some solutions in the stalemate. Later our AIP also detailed about present situation.

4.Matter of Changeover Window stoppage and Illegitimate facility extension.
The matter of illegitimate facility extension to some executive associations due to some doubtful nexus was discussed in the meeting. Infact one such association, have much lesser membership than AIGETOA allowed to continue their status as such, which is completely irrational and beyond justice. The changeover window stoppage also made purposefully to give some hindrance to the flow executives to join AIGETOA across india. We are sure that no one can stop the reality to come out being the fact that only AIGETOA who stand for BSNL recruits for their career and super annuation related matters .

5.Promotions / Inter Circle Transfers.
Discussions held on pending Promotions and restructuring of employees and how association is planning to tackle these matters. Even though situation is tough due to Covid pandemic, we are still working to get some resolutions for the results. The inter circle matter of GATE JTOs is taken by CHQ actively and mean time the long standing inter circle transfer will be known after the lockdown situation, once the transportation becomes normal. AIP clarified the concerns raised.

Finally, CP summarised the resolutions of the meeting and opined that since this mode of zoom meeting is very constructive and convenient, we can think of having such meetings in regular intervals during the lock down / pandemic period
