10.05.2019: DOP&PW advice to DOT on VRS in BSNL / MTNL: It is understood that DOP&PW has given advice to DOT on implementation of VRS in BSNL/MTNL i.e. VRS scheme proposed by DoT is as per DPE guidelines and is relevant for the employees of PSUs, who do not get pension under CCS Pension Rule on Volunteer Retirement. The pension of BSNL/ MTNL employees is regulated by CCS Pension rule and the same is paid by the Govt. from Consolidate Fund of India. Rule 37 A of CCS (P) Rule provides for volunteer retirement after completion of 10 years combined qualifying service these employees of BSNL/MTNL could be encouraged to go on volunteer retirement under the existing rule 37 A instead of offering the Ex gratia in addition to the normal pensionary benefits available in terms of rule 37 A of CCS (Pension) rules.

In accordance with the rule 37 A of those rules, their pension is also be paid by the Govt. DoT may, therefore, examine in consultation with DoPT whether, instead of offering them a Special Volunteer Retirement Scheme (VRS), these employees could be transferred to surplus cell for redeployment in DoT or other Govt. Departments of the Central Govt. for the remaining period of their service in accordance with the scheme of DoPT for redeployment of the surplus staff.

From the above, it seems that DoP&PW is not in favour of imposing VRS to those employees who have taken absorption in BSNL/MTNL and opted for combined service and are governed for Govt. pension under rule 37 A. Hence, AIBSNLEA demands DoT/ Govt. to extent financial support to BSNL/MTNL for their growth, maintenance & operations as per the recommendation given by the GoM earlier in 2013-14. 

25.04.2019: Meeting with Shri O.P.Gupta, CGMT Rajasthan: Circle Secretary, Com. M.K.Morodia and Circle President Com. Anil Rawat met Shri O.P.Gupta, CGMT Rajasthan on 25.04.2019 to discussed some alerting issues related Rajasthan.

we requested him that April month too has crossed but request transfers have not been considered so far.

Shri O.P.Gupta informed that he is very much sensitive towards Request transfers and trying to accommodate most of requests as about 20 JTOs are coming soon from nearby circles. Any alternate arrangements if possible shall also be done.

On the issue of De-Merger Shri O.P.Gupta agreed in principal and shown his full concerned to take necessary action at his level he asked us to take-up the case with BSNL CO level through AIBSNLEA CHQ.

09.04.2019: Why AIBSNLEA is opposing VRS?

Dear Comrades,

You are aware that DoT, under the instructions of PMO, has suddenly decided to roll out VRS Plan for BSNL/MTNL employees. BSNL Management has been assured that there will be no dearth the money to give effect to VRS proposal. Almost 54000 existing employees of BSNL are supposed to go out the roll of the BSNL on implementation of this VRS. This is done under the pretext of “Revival of BSNL/MTNL”.

You are also aware that all BSNL Unions and Associations barring a few,  have  decided collectively to oppose this move of the Government and  AIBSNLEA  is a party to this and accordingly Notice has been issued to the DoT/BSNL to hold protest demonstration on  12th April 2019.

The question is why have we taken such decision? Does it mean, we as Associations and Unions of BSNL do not have any concern for revival of BSNL from the ongoing crisis? Or, is it that we are indifferent about the interests of the individual members?  It is to everybody’s knowledge that the Unions and Associations of BSNL are very responsible Trade Union organizations and interest of BSNL is prime in their minds. For last couple of years the Unions and Associations have been constantly fighting for uplift of BSNL in the arena of cut throat competition. We have resisted every moves by the authority that be to inflict harm to BSNL directly or indirectly. Years before we have demanded to roll out 4G in BSNL to make it more competition fit. Other demands having financial implications e.g. payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum of pay scale have been demanded and pressed for by us. At the same time we have opposed the move of VRS even earlier. Why?

Association is aware that there may be individual members who, out of their own unique situation or personal financial equation may feel that VRS is up to his or her interest. AIBSNLEA is sensitive to the interests of individual members.

But we must understand that the issue like VRS at this crucial juncture cannot and should not be viewed through a narrow prism of individual gain or loss. We, the office-bearers at various level must try to weigh it on broader perspective. BSNL should stay healthy. There are employees who have long service life left. They should not be sacrificed for short term gain.

Our Association is not opposed to VRS par se. We are aware that in PSU systems, VRS is an accepted proposition. We are also aware that in some organizations VRS is implemented to the advantage of the organizations and the employees have been benefited as well. It is a win win situation there.   

In these organizations where VRS is successfully implemented, the entire road map is carefully chalked out on long drawn perspective. VRS is planned 2-3 years before. The targeted employees are identified carefully, mapping the need of the field and the action for suitable replacement is initiated well in advance. So that there is no shortage of man power.

The instant VRS proposal is brought in a hurry and it is apparent that actual purpose behind it is not the revival of BSNL but something else. Just considered the situation how and when such proposal is being hurriedly push through.

A few weeks/months before unions and associations were demanding some important issues related to well-being of BSNL, even DOT / BSNL precipitated an agitation in BSNL . DOT and Ministry were not in a mood to consider any of such demand. Even at the instructions of the higher-ups payment of the salary of employees was stalled. Now when the entire country press into election mode and Model Code of Conduct is affected. Suddenly all this proposals were brought in the hasty move. BSNL Unions and Associations and other stake holders of BSNL have never been taken in to confidence or even consulted before taking such hasty decision. What is the reason?

We are sure this may be anything other than in the interest of BSNL. By such move they want to harm BSNL and make it in a retrograde situation in the competitive scenario. Privatization may also be hidden agenda.                                                                                      

On the contrary, consider the case of MTNL where VRS has been implemented twice so far. But the net result is that MTNL became weaker and weaker at this. Now when DOT is proposing VRS in MTNL for the third time to reduce 10000 employees, MTNL is having at present 22000 employees and already experiencing acute shortage of working hands in the field units. The revenue hits at the lowest bottom. The strength of employees has been reduced   drastically but so is the customer base and revenue earning. None in DOT/Govt is interested to look at it. It is as if, reducing the employees is their ultimate objective and not revival of MTNL. One can easily understand what is going to happen in MTNL in coming few days.

For BSNL, VRS is being thought of only from one angle. Let the strength of the employees be reduced so that present wage bill is reduced. But there is no consideration about the resultant impact in the field units. We are certain that minimizing the working hands by applying mindless VRS without having any regard to its immediate retrograde impact in the field, cannot serve any meaningful purpose in the way of reviving of BSNL. It will go in MTNL way. One VRS will follow another VRS but crisis will continue. Unmindful reduction of staff will lead to a situation where offloading of day to day maintenance work will be assigned to the petty contractors. Cost will be enhanced but efficiency will be reduced resulting into steady loss of customers and revenue. We cannot have opportunistic approach on such a vital issue which will affect the BSNL and its employees.
