Long pending issues of the Non-Executives going to the approval of the Board of Directors.
CHQ has already informed about the discussion held with the CMD BSNL, on the long pending issues of the Non-Executives, such as promotion to E-1 pay scale for Non-Executives, downgradation of the Sr.TOAs from 7100-6550 scale, one additional increment to the left out Non-Executives and implementation of gratuity to the casual labourers. CHQ has also informed that, after discussion held with CMD BSNL, prompt actions were being taken by the various Branches of the Corporate Office, for the resolution of these long pending issues.
Today, Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, Com. Swapan Chakraborty, Dy.GS and Com. S. Chellappa, AGS, met Shri Sourabh Tyagi, Sr.GM(Estt.), and enquired about the status of these issues. It was informed by the Sr.GM(Estt.) that Board Memos have already been sent on the issues of one additional increment to the left out Non-Executives and implementation of gratuity to the casual labourers, for the approval of the Board. As regards, promotion in E-1 pay scale to the Non-Executives, it was informed by the Sr.GM(Estt.)that, Board Memo is being prepared on this issue, to be sent for the approval of the Board of Directors. The meeting of the Board of Directors is taking place at the end of this month.
As regards the problem of down gradation of the Sr.TOAs from 7100 pay scale to 6550 pay scale, further discussion took place today between the BSNLEU representatives and the Sr.GM(Estt.). It was strongly demanded by the Union that the promotion given to the Sr.TOAs, under OTBP, before the implementation of the NEPP, should be treated as first promotion under NEPP, with a view to avert the down gradation. The Sr.GM(Estt.) responded positively. Further discussion in this connection will be taking place within the next few days. The Union representatives demanded that a settlement of this issue should also be sent for the approval of the forthcoming meeting of the Board of Directors.
