Query 424: It is clear from the above that all the above direct recruit JTOs were later recruited through competitive examination ,trained in later batches and appointed later than me. All these JTOs shown appointed against year of recruitment-1993 whereas I have been shown as recruited for –1994,where in fact the advertisement reflects the backlog vacancies upto year –1989. Moreover I had applied against first advertisement as year of recruitment –1993. Sir, as we know the gradation list for JTO’s is prepared as per the year of recruitment and which is thebase of further promotion in the department. Now as these JTO’s were shown against the recruitment year 1993, all appears senior to me in the circle and All India gradation list, though recruited ,examined & appointed later than me. So likely they have got all the promotions though they are very junior to me in the department. This shows injustice with me. But in my case MTNL Mumbai ,an unit MH CIRCLE have not followed the sequence of allotment of recruitment year & not according to the relevant rules. Moreover it is made crystal clear by recent Judgement from Hon.Central Administrative Tribunal Mumbai that the candidates recruited through subsequent examination will have to be junior to those recruited earlier. It is specifically clear in my case that allotment of year of recruitment is not in conformity with the examination. It is well aware fact that earlier examined JTO should get earlier recruitment year than those recruited later. But I have been allotted year of recruitment – 1994 instead of 1993. Dear Sir,would u please suggest the means to solve this .  (Posted by:  hitendra chauhan yeotmal mh circle chauhan yeatmal 24/1/2006)

Query 402: Sir, It is very shame to support the ITSA for their demand to work in deputation lifelong without absorption like British ruled India. Also whether GE-JTOs should form separate association to get their rights. As we know for TBP, it has been proposed that the promotions for deptt.JTOs is 4yrs whereas for GE JTOS it is 6yrs. Is it fair?  (Posted by:  A.K.Swaminathan Chennai 8/11/2005)

CS Replies: SNEA has not supported for continuation of deputation, but to pave the way for smooth absorption of ITS. As I have already replied two similar queries, let me repeat that this action of GS was under a peculiar situation created by some unions and Federations. However, this is not going to give any mileage to ITSA. The ITS Mgt is trying to separate the GE-JTOs from the mainstream by formulating discriminatory policy in the name of TBP. You must be aware that SNEA has already taken up the issue. Formation of a separate Association by GE-JTOs is not advisable. Because "United we stand, divided we fall".

Query 399: Now that the vaccum has persisted in the BSNL HQ at Barakhamba Road New Delhi by the repatriation of the senior ITS officers from BSNL HQ and the variuos functions like planning,operation,commercial, marketing,future expansions and other developmental activities have become standstill, Why do not the BSNL management posts our promotee officers from TES Gp-B to look after these important functions as the BSNL is facing huge loss of revenue and the variuos projects/operations are getting delayed. Why our association is not persuing the matter with the MOC & IT/Chairman Telecom Commision at an earlist.  (Posted by:  Rajesh, New Delhi, 4/11/2005 )

CS Replies: BSNL has allowed resumption of duties by all ITS officers (ITSA members) repatriated to DOT on 18.10.2005 in the name of implementing Court orders through its direction dated 10.11.2005. However, they have been given one more opportunity to join by 30.11.2005. Let us wait for their response and further actions from DOT.

Query 398: It is being observed by the field units that the ITS officers after 18-10-05 have become sluggish in their approach regarding their responsibilities towards BSNL and its development has literally stopped in NTR and the Circles.What should the associations of the executives can do against these officers and for the proud of the BSNL .

Query 397: (a) Dear Sir, on one side the ITS fraternity is always unwilling to give what we deserved in the past whether it was promotions from jto to look after dgm, promotion policiy,management trinee issue and other core issues for which we had to resort to the agitational programmes even upto hunger strikes and also gp-b were termed as dogs( Recent e-mail by an ITS officer )We are perplexed by the stance taken by the GS in signing the resolution in their favour for the unwarranted issues. I want to know whether the GS blindly takes decisions on his own or the concensus among the various circle executives members is made first and then passing its decision.The duality of stance is very shameful.  (Posted by: Rajesh, New Delhi on 01/11/2005)

(b) Sir,why our as all we know that the reason for our denial of rights(e.g.timely promotion etc.)are only due to the management of our department i.e. ITS officers as they do not want Gr.B officer to grow.But unfortunately our association supporting these officers by signing resolution to Comm. Minister.As in previous queries you said that our association need not do anything in this situation(i.e. deadlock of ITS absorption process)then why our association supporting these ITS officers which have done nothing well not not only for our members but also for department?  (Posted by:  AMIT, NEW DELHI on 30/10/2005 )

CS Replies: It seems a large number of members of SNEA throughout the country are not happy at this unpleasant development. However, GS was perhaps under pressure from the Non-executive Unions and Federations as they threatened to go for a nationwide strike in support of the ITS officers. Just to avert such an undesiarable development which would have given still better mileage to them, the said resolution was signed. None the less, the matter will remain controversial and debatable.

Query 396: Sir, As we feel that ENGG Grduates in BSNL are ignored in respect of promotion, salary,liberty etc, can we form a subsidary association under SNEA for Engg.Graduates?  (Posted by: S.A.Kahalekar AURANGABAD 26/10/2005 )

Query 395: Sir, If the TBP is implemented will there be usual DPCs further, Even though previously Eligibility list was prepared covering 1994 , the new list shows only up to 1993 .What is the fate of 1994 recruited JTOs ? So many have completed 10 years total serice as JTO(DOT+BSNL). service of 10 years . In the new policy if a JTO gets 70 % in 4 years service from OCT 2000 and has crossed 11875 scale will he get the regular SDE post? Kindly clarify my point at your earliest.  (Posted by: P.V.Subramanian SDE,Officiating,Perambra,CALICUT 30/10/2005 )

CS Replies: TBP policy itself is not desirable at its present form (financial upgradation only on fulfilment of attendant conditions) which has been put on hold. Moreover, the attendant conditions have also been incorporataed by the ITS management in case of regular promotions also. The condition of promotion, as of now, has become worse than the earlier one. SNEA is thoroughly worried for this. After failure of the last agitation program due to lack of desired support from most of the circles, Association is looking for more effective ways to resolve the issues.

Query 371: Sir, My husband is working as JTO in Himachal Pradesh and I am in Kerala.Both of us belong to the 2001 recruited GE JTOs.Initially there were 6 others along with my husband in HP circle.Now he is alone.Just within one year all the lady JTOs (they were 4 in no)got transfer to Kerala.And in 2004 the remaining two JTOs also got transfer.Eventhough my husband submitted request for transfer,it was rejected.I don^t know why he is the only person left there without any humanitarian consideration.There his life is horrible.Already his physical state is too bad.Now he is mentally week for being destined to be left alone while all the others from kerala joined along with him were able to enjoy some kind of special consideration somehow to get transfer to Kerala.I am working in Kerala itself because my rank in the entrance exam was within 700.The rank of all Kerala JTOs posted in HP (including my husband^s) is between 2000 and 3000. So is it have any logic to say that our problem can be solved if I am going to HP circle.Actually this was the commend of one of my husband^s senior officers when he applied for transfer to Kerala stating that his wife is working in BSNL Kerala.The comment was #His wife can come to HP circle and thus their problem can be solved. ha ha#. Ok we know that we have to work anywhere in India.But is this not applicable to all the JTOs?Why some people can get transfer within say 1yrs ,2yrs to places near to their houses.If a rule is there, should it be applicable to all the JTOs?Why my husband ,eventhough he is having much problems,alone is under a rule.Why he alone is destined to work 3000 kms away from his family.And why we,eventhough we work for the same company,get the most unfortunate treatment. Sir,pls don^t think that this is to question any rule or anybody.While i surfed (I^m under maternity leave now)i saw your site and thought that it is a frienly place to express my grief. And my husband knew nothing about this.If it is a punishable mistake to do this,I am taking the whole reponsibility . Please give me your valuable advices  (Posted by:  Priya, Kerala, 30/8/2005)

Query 357: Respected Sir, I hail from M.Chidambaram Pillai Illam, Thirruppararithurai, Tamil Nadu-639 115(Tele No- 0431-2614207). My husband is serving our mother land as an Air Warrior. At present he is posted in Air Force Station, Mohanbari, Dibrugarh-district, Assam. As we are staying far away from our family, we desired to take telephone connection to have communication with our aged parents. After a long struggle! (Yes, for taking telephone connection we struggled like anything). I got my land line telephone connection in Air force station Mohanbari House. The telephone no is 0373-2382906. After taking the telephone connection only we came to know that we have done a great mistake. Because instead of helping us, the telephone connection started giving disturbance. As because, at least in a month 10-15 days it will go un-serviceable. I have to request my husband to run for this. Here there is no proper compliant procedure. In our place (Mohanbari) we have nearly seventy five telephone connection, in this always nearly 15-25 telephone will be in unserviceable condition. I know many people whose telephone was unserviceable for more than 30 days also. If we ask anything to the authority they use to tell this is Assam, not your Tamil Nadu/ South, it will be like this only. They tell problems like Rain, Line man not available, cable missing/stolen and etc. I tried in all level from Local line man to GM Dibrugarh. But everything goes in vain, the problem persist. If you want, you go and complaint any where things will not change, this is the answer I always get from local level. Even two times I disturbed! GM telephone - Dibrugarh (0373-2320160, 2325080 & 2305081) and DE telephone - Dibrugarh many times (0373-2323999 & 9435000373) to rectify my telephone after failed in local level. Always I used to try with SDO telephone - Dibrugarh (0373-2325124 ) and Mohanbari exchange complaint cell (0373-2382598, & 2382599 ) to rectify my telephone connection. Even now also from past 20 days my telephone is un serviceable.

Query 356: Dear Sir, Can^t the DPE, Hon^ble Courts and promotion policies existing in other PSU^s and the other PSU associations help us in getting the uniform promotion policies in all the PSU^s of Govt. of India.  (Posted by:  Rajesh Kumar Faridabad, 06/7/2005)

CS Replies: All options are being explored by SNEA, CHQ.

Query 355: Dear Sir, Now that the BSNL Management is reluctant to give the promotion policy we deserve , Should not the justice be seeked from the Hon^ble courts and the option forms and the presidential orders be made the basis for the promotion policy . Also uniform promotion policy be stressed that too after the absorption process of the ITS officers is over. By making a haste in all the matters we have always lost what we want and deserve.We must now adopt the wait and watch policy and stress for the uniform policies ( i.g. promotion policy, relative perks and other issues )for the top management to the bottom officials then only the justice will prevail to all the cadres.  (Posted by:  Praveen Saini, Faridabad, 06/7/2005)

CS Replies: You are correct. However, court case may not yield any positive result. We should pressurise the management after the issue of absorption of Grp A is over. Moreover, to pressurise we need strength, but unfortunately circles like UP, Bihar, MP, Maharastra, and almost all North Indian circle organizations of both SNEA and AIBSNLEA are too weak to fight for our demands. Take part in the Association actively, take the leadership and fight for our legitimate right.

Query 354: Trained TTAs are getting officiating promotion as JTOs in kerala. They are non-executives and discharging duties as executives.this practice is objectionable.as training is not a factor for officiating to higher post management can give officiating to a non-executive to executive post .this will surely decay the executive structure bsnl management is playing in tune with the powerfil non-executive union and diluting the jto post . Pl note and check the unfavourable move.thank you.  (Posted by:  Chenninayakam, Guntur on 2/4/2005 )

CS Replies: Although you have a point, the ongoing practice will not undermine the status of executive cadres. However, it is happening due to acute shortage of JTOs as a temporary measure.

Query 353: Dear Comrade, The deffered agitational programme by the joint forum of executives after meeting with the Hon. MOC & IT and later with the Management of BSNL (the shape of which may change after absorption of ITS officers ) , the united forum should not agree for the formation of any committee regarding the promotion policy, we must oppose the recruitment of management trainees as agreeing to even on 1% of the O/s or I/s quota would result in stamping the post based promotional policy. We must wait for only 3 weeks time for the management^s decision on promotional policy. Any move for the formation of any committee would result in only wastage of time and compromising on what the management wants.  (Posted by:  RAJESH KUMAR, Faridabad on 28/3/2005 )

CS Replies: Thanks for expressing your view on this burning issue.

Query 349: Sir, we are officers of grade ^A^from an agency of government where all the rules of government are applicable. So, we attended the same interview and selected as project officers. At the time of appointment as per the OM those who are already in government service are given option to join on deputation those who are not in service are appointed as direct recruitee. Those who were given option opted to join on deputation and had lien in the parent department and does not hold inquivalent post in parent department. Initially the deputation was for 3yrs substantially extented 2yrs, After that they opted to be absorbed in the department. The department have absorbed them with immediate effect that is at the end of their deputation period. Now they claim their seniority as per merit of interview. And the direct recruitee objects that their (absorbees) seniority should be fixed on the date of absorption. Kindly enlighten us what should be the criteria of fixing seniority.  (Posted by: Yumpy, Chandigarh on 24/3/2005 )

CS Replies: Seniority should be counted from the date of absorption and not from the date of deputation or any other date.

Query 348: Dear sir, Thanks to our association office bearers and member for their effort to protest to mgmt^s trial to exploit our career. But is it not possible to go to court against mgmt^s decision of recruitment of mgmt trainee & JTO both Executives of same qualification as it will demoralize the executives entering in JTO level and this is not followed in any other PSUs. If this is possible, then why association is not going to court ?  (Posted by: A.K.Swami, Chennai 0n 21/3/2005 )

CS Replies: You are absolutely correct. But the case may not stand in court, because the management will put emphasis on some extra qualifications for Management trainees in addition to that required for direct recruit JTO. This will make two entirely different cadres with entry at different levels on technical requirements for the interest of the company.

Query 347: Dear comrade, It is learnt from a few circles that some of our association office bearers are not co-operating fully in the agitational programmes and do not leave the offices when some demonstration is to be done. The CHQ must direct all the circle secretaries to prepare the lists of such office bearers of the association and they be thrown out of the association with immediate effects as they tend to weaken the agitational programmes. Such officers are getting associated with the ITS officers for their vested interest and keep the association at a bay. Every one of us should not cooperate in any way with the ITS officers and contribute maximum for the max. impact on the services. The united forum must press hard for immediate absorption of ITS officers to the Prime Minister, MOC, President and other political personalities. Gp- C and D unions be motivated for their promotional policies and other related issues and they be involved in the agitational programmes.  (Posted by: RAJESH KUMAR, NEW DELHI on 20/3/2005 )

CS Replies: Excellent idea indeed. Involvement of each member is required for sure success.

Query 346: Dear sir, now with the stay by the high court on the reversion of 1966 TES Gp-B in which SNEA office bearers have played the major role, It seems that they want the promotions to be decided through courts only and this would send a wrong message amongst the members and with the courts taking years to decide the cases this would further frustrate the members. However the TESA has been keeping itself isolated from these litigations that shows their maturity level. Why the SNEA doing this.  (Posted by: A comrade, Ballabhgarh on 16/3/2005 )

CS Replies: Reversion is injustice.

CS Replies: Regular service is mandatory at the lower grade for officiating promotion at a higher level/grade.

Query 343: Dear Sir, The joint forum of the two assosiations is fighting hard for the time bound promotion policy. However, the past experience had revealed that when in 1997-99, Sh. N Vittal took over as the Chairman telecom commission He helped the J.E. Telecom to get the Gp-B status and also removed the hurdles created by the ITS top management regarding their promotions to TES Gp-B who did every possible efforts to make the promotion ^stagnant^. Even after recognizing that the ITS Management treats the Promotees as untouchables , our associations have supported their fight for not allowing the IAS officers take the charge of the CMD post. We must fight for their early absorption then the promotion policies and the perks would be settled as per our aspirations ultimately.  (Posted by: Rajesh, Ballabhgarh on 9/3/2005 )

CS Replies: ITS group is now facing the unwanted task of deciding whether to get absorbed in BSNL or not. Just wait and observe the fun. United forum will definitely take a suitable decision in accordance with the out come of this absorption process already floated for ITS.

CS Replies: SNEA(I) has taken all possible steps.

Query 333: Sir, from "www.sneachq.net" it is seen that our association is going to file a case at Ernakulam against the abolition of 1966 SDE posts. This is a welcome move. But at the same time, since the posts were created in 1998, that is at the time when the new 1996 rectt rule was in force, Association should see that these 1966 are filled as per the 1996 rules. Otherwise further complications will come in future. And all future promotions will come to a standstill due to court cases. As a Circle Secretary you can do some thing in this regard. How many court cases in SDE promotions. No other cadre is facing such problems. This is because things are not done right in the first instance. One has to go to court to get justice. This is not a proper way to set things right. Association should always watch the activities of our dept and stop such irregularities done by the fools of our dept. Many officers at DOT do not apply any common sense while doing such very important things like DPC.  (Posted by: Manohar Nath, SNEA, on 24/2/2005 )

Query 321: The revised seniority lists being circulated were prepared on the basis of para-206. Because of this very seniors like 1972 YOR are placed below the very juniors like 1982 YOF. Not only that this is a violation of Supreme Court verdict. Why the dept is doing all such nonsences. I think they are doing all these things to create confusion and block further promotions. This should have prevented by our association. Now again court of law will ask the dept to revise the current list as it is not prepared on the basis of rect rules. The 1966 posts should have taken from the seniority list No: 5 publised earlier and not from the 1998 DPC. After 1988 DPC supreme court asked to revise the seniority list and a list was publised. Why our association is not watching all these things. Is it because our association is not happy with the Bangalore court verdict and allowed the dept to create all such nasty things so that the revised lists will not be implimented for some more days. Now the so called 1972 YOR should go to the court to get justice and spend a lot of money and time. The seniority lists were revised a number of times. Why all this funny things. We have to put an end to this. There are rules and those rules must be followed. Then no one can go to the court. Our association should force the dept to do things correctly in the first time itself.  (Posted by:  Rahul Jha, MP on 3/2/2005)

CS Replies: Efforts are on. But some things are not in the hands of the Association. I hope you understand

Query 319: Sir. 2 comp. exams were conducted for 1998 DPC. Since seniority on Comp. Exam is decided on the basis of marks, how the marks of 2 exams with different question papers can be combined.

Query 318: Mr.G.L.Jogi in his letter to Chairman says that there were 1647 SDE posts in excess to the number of qualified SDEs. But when some one filed a case in Ernakula CAT to conduct the qualifying exam, the dept had given a reply to the CAT that there was no need to conduct the exam as there was no vacancy available and that to promote the existing qualified SDEs some posts had to be created (the 1966 posts). Mr Jogi can say any thing in the SNEA site, but the dept can^t say different things at different times to CAT. All can be fooled at some time OR some can be fooled for all the time BUT all can^t be fooled for all the time. What is your opinion. This way we can?t find solution to any vital issue.  (Posted by:  Krishna Kumar, Ernakulam on 27/1/2005 )

Query 305: (a)Instead of changing the year of promotion of 1966 SDEs from 1998 to 2000, the year of promotion of the SDEs who are senior to these 1966 SDEs and were promoted in 2000 wrongly, may be changed to 1998 (deemed date of promotion). This will solve this vital issue. ASSAM SNEA may pursue this case to CHQ.  (Posted by:  Mariyappan, Tamil Nadu on 10/1/2005 )

(b) SNEA (then JTOA) spent a lot of time and money on para 206, qualifying cum competitive exam. But what finally court directed was implemented. All these court cases affected promotion. JAOs who are at par with JTOs in all respect are well ahead in promotions that is also without any exams. Now we are going to do the mistakes in 1966 SDE posts. Let the dept to implement the court verdict. We have many other vital issues such as Time Bound Promotion which is beneficial to all members. Don’t try to safe guard the interests of a few members at the cost of majority members.  (Posted by:  Varghese, Cochin on 1/1/2005 )

(c) I fully agree with Mr. J. K. Singh. The 1966 posts can be filled up as per new rules only. Then why SNEA is trying the other way. And majority of the JTOs (who are recruited after 1984) is least bothered about this issue. Let justice is done to all. Our association should not waste time in such issues.  (Posted by:  P.
