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

The Post-VRS scenario is no better than Pre-VRS scenario for BSNL Recruits in BSNL seeing the partisan behaviour of management towards your Rightful Dues and Rightful Voice. It seems that some sections in the BSNL management is hell bent to derail peaceful atmosphere of the company and giving you more reason to revolt than to work for betterment of the company. We restrained ourselves from getting into any organisational activities since last one and half years even in the most unfortunate time and denial in the larger interest. But when your existence will be challenged again and again, even when you account for more than 70% of total executive's strength in post VRS, we are bound to react and react vigorously and decisively. We have fought several struggles in past against discrimination and have enough power to once again show our inherited command to defy injustice and oppression. So, all of you are requested to start preparing for decisive struggle against suppression of your voice, challenge to your existence and hollow assurance for settlement of your long drawn genuine HR Issues.

Yesterday, SR Cell issued an order denying the very basic right of your voice and presence in the company by ignoring AIGETOA out rightly and favouring SNEA and AIBSNLEA by extending illegitimate facility for another three months (till 12th Jun 2020), whose due recognition period of three years has already ended on 12th Dec, 2019 as per BSNL REA Rule-2014. Secondly, Restructuring Cell came out with a letter inviting only SNEA and AIBSNLEA from association side as 1st and 2nd Majority Association for an all important proposed meeting on the "Implementation of BSNL Revival Plan and Restructuring in BSNL post VRS" to be held on 18th March, 2020 under chairmanship of the CMD BSNL.

Click here for the Restructuring Letter

It important to note here that in the post VRS scenario, AIGETOA has already reached to 2nd Position in respect of total membership count and AIBSNLEA is standing at 3rd Position. This situation exists; when membership changeover window of Dec-Jan was not opened even after our repeated request else you might have reached to the 1st Position. In this condition, non-extending of at par facility to AIGETOA and giving extension to SNEA/AIBSNLEA clearly shows biased attitude of the SR Cell, New Delhi. It seems that management also doesn't want your voice to be heard while finalizing All Important Restructuring Plan of BSNL, which is going to be a key decision in the HR History of BSNL. Hence, your voice is being flattened and you are being marginalised even after reaching 2nd Position in the count and favour is being extended to those who speak in-tune with management.

The ways and methods adopted by HR group and BSNL management gives us enough reasons to believe that something is cooking up and perhaps AIGETOA does not fit in their scheme of things else there should not be any reason to sideline AIGETOA on important policy matters, who is the highest stake holder in post VRS scene. It has come to our notice that M/s Deloitte has submitted its report with regard to manpower plan and it is learnt that there is direction to reduce the posts drastically even to the extent which many would not have thought even in his worst imaginations. It is understood that other associations are becoming party to this decision as their much cherished dream of issuance of AGM to DGM (Adhoc) promotion has been accomplished. If BSNL Recruits do not wake up now, the day is not very far away, when all the BRs will be forced to retire in the cadre of SDE/AO without pay, pension and further promotions. With AIGETOA in picture, it was not easy to get the nod of Unions/Associations on proposed reorganisation plan of BSNL and that may be the key to all such actions.

The website of the messiah association is also burning proof of our interpretations as they simply got the focus of BSNL Recruits shifted to EPF case in Hon'ble Supreme Court after the promotion of DGM (Adhoc), while talks of HR issues have ceased to exist in their website. We are fully prepared to tackle their malacious designs, come what may.. We will not let BRs be made subject to this injustice and we are ready to fight till our last breathe.....

Wake Up Call Dear BSNL Recruits.....It's a wakeup call for all of us.. Either wake up or be ready to be ruined.

Today, Team AIGETOA has registered our STRONG PROTEST to the GM (SR) and clearly apprised him that the we are not going to be remain silent if our concern on these two letters are not addressed. Director (HR) due to his prior engagements at BSNL CO and DoT could not meet but he has been apprised of the unrest and partisan behaviour of HR group. We have given them clear timeline to take the corrective action with regard to this issue as well as conclusive decision on other HR issues as per commitment given in the meeting with Director (HR). If the corrective as well as conclusive action is not taken, AIGETOA is all prepared to rewrite history once again.

The management has to decide whether they want BSNL Recruits to devote their energy in the work place or on the street to fight for their legitimate voice and dues. In the mean time, Secretary (DoT), CMD and Director (HR) BSNL has been sent a SoS letter regarding our serious concern as mentioned above and demanded its immediate redresser.
