IMMEDIATE SETTLEMENT OF 78.2% IDA MERGER:

 

The meeting of the Forum, which took place today the 09.05.2013, has taken the historic decision to go on indefinite strike, demanding the immediate settlement of 78.2% IDA merger. The issue of 78.2% IDA merger was sent to the approval of DoT.

This is nothing but putting 78.2% IDA merger in the cold storage. After discussing the issue threadbare, the Forum has decided to give call for the following agitational programme. Today's meeting was attended by Com. V.A.N. Namboodiri (Convener), Com.P. Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU, Com. C. Singh, GS, NFTE, Com. K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA, Com.Prahalad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com.

Com. K.K. Das, Circle Secretary, Assam Circle, welcomed all. Assam Circle has welcomed all the CHQ Office Bearers and all the CWC members by presenting "Gamochha" a tradition of Assam State.

Com Prahlad Rai, GS AIBSNLEA CHQ  in his speech . informed that the CWC of  AIBSNLEA being held here in Guwahati, and the delegates in [<<<<Click Here for the Keynote Address of GS>>>]  the CWC Meeting are the representatives of 25,000 strong BSNL executives, through out the country. He stated that at the time of formation of BSNL from a Govt. Department to a corporate entity, BSNL faced unique challenges, in which serious doubts were raised about its capability to sustain productivity and profitability. But with true grit determination, dedication and sincerity, BSNL has belied these misconceptions and sustained its position. In a period of 13 years, BSNL have Wireless customer base of about 97.46 million, Wiredline customer base of 20.76 million and 9.93 million Broadband connections upto the month of Jan'2013. This year is a very challenging year for us to improve its position since in last three years, BSNL has faced losses of about Rs.1800 Crores, 6300 Crores and 8600 Crores respectively. He also stated that the association is confident that this year under the leadership of Shri R.K. Upadhyay, CMD, BSNL, BSNL will be achieving the targets set by the Govt.

GS informed that BSNL, is the major service provider of universal services in rural, remote, in-accessible and hilly areas, provided reliable service connectivity across the country including ice-lands, hence, should fully be exempted from making the contribution towards USO fund and the net contribution made by it till date which is about Rs. 8000 Crores and demanded immediately refund of the same to BSNL. 

GS stated that National Telecom Policy (NTP)'99 does not envisage recovery of any license fee from BSNL (then DoT) in respect of its fixed line services. In respect of GSM line services the license fee was to be paid by BSNL but the same was to be fully reimbursed being a national service providers having immense rural and social obligations. BSNL has been paying the license fee in respect of basic services and cellular services also.

He stated that recently Union Cabinet has approved the National Telecom Policy -2012 (NTP - 2012) on 31.05.2012. The Cabinet also approved introduction of Unified License and authorised the Department of Telecommunications to finalise the new Unified Licensing regime with the approval of Minister of Communications & IT. The policy will certainly benefit the Private Operator but nowhere any preferential treatment to BSNL/MTNL has been offered being the State own PSUs.

He pointed out that Govt. has charged Rs. 18,500 Crores for 3G and BWA spectrum auction and as per the allocation guide-lines in which BSNL has been given one block of spectrum on the cost of highest bid in the respective service area, whereas BSNL should have been allocated 3G and BWA spectrum free of cost in lieu of complete phasing out of ADC or on benchmark price and demanded immediate refund of Rs. 8313 Crores of BWA Spectrum Charges to BSNL. He suggested that BSNL should expand its GSM, 3G and Broadband Services looking into tremendous public support and demand. He pointed out that BSNL Management's decision to outsource CDR billing, its improper implementation and Annual Maintenance Contracts for the New Technology Switches has became the source for drainage of hard earned revenue. All these days, BSNL's own employees were successfully carrying out these jobs.

Com.

Shri A K Mehra, CGM Assam Circle expressed gratitude for inviting him and also for organising good cultural programme.  He also informed that reduction of expenditure and increase of revenue should be the mantra in the minds of the officers and staff.  He also informed that the call centres in Norther Region is not working not only due to A/T issue, it is due the inflated bill of the vendors.  The services are met with the staff even though the call centres are shut down by the vendor one by one.

 

Shri Rakesh Kapoor, ED (CN), BSNL Corporate Office expressed that the gathering will discuss very fruitful points for the growth of BSNL.  He requested to compare the online services provided by the Banks, Railways and Airlines and make the uptime and quality of bandwidth to the customers.  He also suggested to Outsource  non-working network .  Middle level executive have to come with new vision and senior officers have their own role.  We have to work together and should be a synchronization.  The change should come from us.

 

Shri A. N. Rai, Director(EB/HR), BSNL Board on behalf of Assam Circle he welcomed all the delegates since he has worked in Assam for more than two and half years and he has an attachment with the circle.   He stated that the financial viability is the utmost important for every one of us and Circle Secretaries being an important person in the Association, activities of the Circle and its financial performance should be aware to them.  The executives of middle management is having important role.  The importance of DE level officers are much in all Govt. department including BSNL.  The required focus on revenue is done by us needs to be assessed.  The change in behaviour is also the need of the hour.  We needs to improve our customer relation.  Increase of more revenue is the viability of BSNL.  Revenue  is based on three factors viz.  no. of customers, service they used and tariff of the service.   There is no possibility of any reduction of tariff in the coming year.  Usability of the service is based on the quality of service rendered by us and the number of customers availing the service.  Executive of middle management has to deliver the quality of service which will increase the number of customers.  Where ever required outsourcing is to be done to improve the quality of service.  Planning of new work in the newly developing areas are to be initiated at the level of JTOs / SDEs which can be worked out to see the financial viability to provide the connections in the said area.    The work of road widening work and other related works on the road is not going to stop ever and methods are to be adopted to keep the service to the customers.  He also stated that by December 2013, private operator are planning to launch wireless broadband.  There will be difficult to meet the challenge if we fail to maintain the broadband services.  The service to the customers by the staff and officers are to be from 8 am to 8 PM. He pointed out that Lack of co-ordination between the executives for which there is no need of any direction from anybody.  The middle level executives are only responsible and others are only to support you.   He requested the association to shoulder the responsibility of providing good service.

 

As regards the issue of the executive, the management is with the Association.  However getting contempt against the CMD cannot be accepted and tolerated.  Get the cases withdrawn many cases can be settled.  In case of court cases there are chances of non-settlement of the cases for years together. 

 

Com. P. Venugopal, President AIBSNLEA CHQ  in  his address mentioned that the interactive speech  of Director (HR) with the house is appreciated.  Inspite of non availability of required equipment, services are provided and there is increase in revenue.  The efforts of AIBSNLEA making customer delight year has yielded good result.   The long period of 18 to 20 years to get a promotion from JTO to SDE is painful in the Corporate set up.  He also stated that the designation matters a lot for everybody as in the case of creation of Sr. G.M., every cadre need designation along with the upgradation.  The expenditure is getting increased for which the middle level executives are not responsibility.  In generally there is an acute shortage of stores and there is a management failure to provide the required equipment to provide services to the valued customers. The support of DOT is not available and inspite of TRAI direction, DOT is not paying the dues to BSNL.  At the same time DOT is levying interest from BSNL for delay in payment. The pension contribution at the maximum of scale is getting profit to the DOT which needs the payment of contribution in actual.  As BSNL being a company should have their own decision making power instead of depending on DOT which is not at all supporting at any level. He stated that change of designation, standard pay scale of E1 and E2, reduction of post, junior drawing more pay than senior due the system fault, option case of JAOs which needs extension of 6 months, regularisation of JTOs are burning issues which demorilize the executives.  The efforts taken by the Director (HR) to settle the case of 78.2 % was commendable and needs such approach to settle these burning cases.  He requested Director(HR/EB) to use his good offices with DOT to get the 78.2% case approved. 

As regards increase of revenue training classes can be conducted in our training centres, proper utilisation of quarters by allocating to other public sector, reconnection of landlines, creation of ATM centre in exchange building are already done by our field officers.
