22-6-16 Dear friends-- as you know well that 247 SDE to DE promotion orders were issued after sincere efforts and a long persuasion  of MEA with MTNL management, of course we were pursuing and fighting to get 421 officers promoted whose DPC was conducted, but orders of 247 officers only could be issued .Our efforts are on to see that left out orders are also issued.

We have to advice our members not to pay any money to any body/ Association/group in the name of these promotions, as it is the duty of the association to pursue and fight for the legitimate right of the members.

04-03-16 Meeting with CMD---GS Sh V K Tomar along with CS Shri  Sunil kumar & CT Shri Satyavir Singh met CMD on 03-03-16 at Sanchar Bhawan. Following issues were discussed.
  1. SDE to DE promotions by increasing the SCF quota from 50:50 to 75:25 on the line of BSNL and promote all qualified SDE in a single list to avoid any litigation because of pending seniority case in the Supreme court. We strongly argued that because of this abnormal delay in holding regular  DPC from SDE to DE, eligible officers are getting retired before getting their legitimate right of promotion and many will loose their regular promotion to DGM because of less qualified service for promotion to DGM. And also it will affect the performance of the company. CMD was convinced with our arguments and asked Dir (HR) to consider the case at par with BSNL
  2. Counting training period for the purpose of drawing increment to the Direct recruited officers as is considered for DOT recruited officers/employees--- We expressed the deep concern of the Association that inspite of the assurance given by him. Dir (HR) & Dir (fin) that case will be revisited and settled, the case has not yet been even put up for decision. GS gave him a letter on this subject, which was marked by him to Dir (HR) to put the case urgently.<<< see letter>>>
  3. Framing Recruitment rules for promotion from AM (HR/Mktg/legal/Fin/CS) to Dy Manager-We strongly expressed the resentment of Association  that inspite of assurance by all board members including CMD that this issue will be put up in board meeting and settled. But case is still not settled. CMD informed that this issue was put up in board meeting and discussed, but DOT nominated director opposed the issue on the ground that these promotions will put extra financial burden on the company. GS told CMD that it shows that issue has not been properly placed and explained in the board meeting. It is a issue  of framing RRs for a cadre which has been recruited by MTNL a decade ago and no RRs have been framed for promotion of these cadre. it was the mistake of the company. More over, promotions can not be stopped on the ground of financial implication. Association  pressed for early board meeting and settlement of the issue at the earliest. CMD assured positive action in this matter and asked GS to explain this issue to other board of directors including Govt nominated Director
  4. Relaxation in qualifying service for regular promotion from SM to  DGM and DGM to GM in all disciplines---We also raised that because of delayed regular promotions in all executive cadres, officers particularly at Sr Manager and DGM level are not qualifying the required length of service for regular promotion to the post of DGM and GM, while number of vacancies are available in these cadres. So we demanded that management should relax the qualifying service in such cases. CMD was positive in this matter and assured to consider this case.
  5. Transfer of officers from Mumbai to Delhi who were posted on thier promotion from AM to DM one and half year ago---We strongly raised this issue and requested CMD to consider the request of these officers whose families are disturbed. CMD asked Dir (HR) to consider such cases.  
  6. Night patrolling on cable route by officers of MTNL Mumbai unit ---GS explained how officers are being misused unlawfully by MTNL Mumbai unit for night patrolling of cable rout. We also explained how it is unproductive for Mumbai unit to put officers on night patrolling which is also not of much benefit to the company. we also suggested how cable theft can be avoided in a effective way. and if at all it is required than let the non executive staff be there on patrolling and officers be utilised for the work they are supposed to do for the company in day time. CMD assured to look into the matter. He was also not in favor of night patrolling by officers.
  7.  Suggestions to improve the services and revenue of the company-- Suggesstions given by a core group of the Association was handed over to the CMD for his consideration and action.

In MTNL , MEA is in discussion with management, it was our agenda point also in our protest action programme. In the recently held meeting with Director (HR) MTNL on 03-09-15, he asked us to wait till the decision is taken in BSNL , so after BSNL decision on Time bound functional promotion, MEA will take up the case for early decision in MTNL.   

salient point of Jt committee recommendation in BSNL--

Time Bound Functional promotion will be allowed from JTO/JAO à SDE/AO-à Sr SDE/Sr AO -à DE/CAO and equivalent cadres without linking with availability of posts and delinking from seniority with bench mark of “Good”.

b)  The residency period reduced from 6 to 5 years for the first TB promotion from JTO/JAO -à SDE/AO and equivalent cadres. In short the residency period for all the promotions will be 5 years. A JTO/JAO will become a DE/CAO in 15 years.

c)  DE/CAO to DGM promotion will be depending upon the availability of vacancies. However in case DGM promotion is not getting after 5 years due to non availability of vacancies, DGM scale will be offered with designation of “Jt DGM”.

  1. MTNL revival strategies & govt intention in this regard--- Representatives expressed their views and concern about the revival of company and stressed on the expansion of network of MTNL services to get company revived and survived for a long time and need of financial support  for this purpose. JS (T) candidly shared information and views on this matter and said that some options for revival of MTNL are being considered in Govt, but he said govt will not extend any financial support. He said some more govt projects like one  FTTH project for Member of Parliament for which govt has financially supported can also be undertaken for which govt can support. regarding mobile expansion projects, he was of the opinion that any expansion financed  with bank loan at this juncture when company is already heavily burdened with loans and govt is not extending any support, will not be financially viable, so instead of it at the moment, MTNL needs to make its land line segment more efficient and he also agrred with us that there is need of expansion and robust cable network for offering efficient quality of service to our BB and land line customers to generate more revenue. He also said that CDMA spectrum refund of  Rs.468 crore can be utilized for making land line services, where there is still monopoly of MTNL,  more efficient.
  2. Refund of Rs 550 crore  of MAT --He said case is being pursued and assured that best efforts will be made by DOT to get MAT amount refunded to MTNL, which can also be utilized for betterment of quality of services.
  3. Revision of Pension through Pay Revision Committee--Representatives pleaded that now DOT employees absorbed in MTNL and opted for combined pension are getting pension from govt in accordance of 1972 CCS pension rule and from the same civil account from which DOT employees get the pension, so now MTNL has nothing to do with the pension revision because total pension liability after retirement of such employees lies on govt. MEA has already written two letters to DOT. Jt Secretary immediately asked the concerned officer to prepare a note for DPE so that 3rd Pay Revision Committee of CPSEs can exclusively address this issue for MTNL/BSNL. He also spoke to Member (S) and briefed this issue during our meeting.

06-08-15 Meeting with Director (Fin)--GS Sh V K Tomar along with CS Sh Sunil Kumar met Dir (Fin) today and discussed following issues--
  1. Employees share in MTNL equity---The idea which CMD floated to bring ownership sense and sense of belongingness amongst the employees by having stake in company's equity was discussed in length to explore any such possibility. Director (Fin) explained that there are two possibilities in this respect. one is that employees can purchase share from open market and second is that certain percentage of authorized equity can be purchased by employees. If any such proposal is given by Association/unions, it will require board approval and than approval of AGM of share holders. After this proposal will be sent to govt for its approval. He said that it very difficult exercise but if Association/ union  come with any such proposal, he will process the case.
  2. RRs of DM(Mktg/HR/Fin/legal/CS)---He said that as CMD he has already taken a uniform decision that there will be 1/3rd and 2/3rd  competitive and SCF quota for promotion to DM cadre in all disciplines including Finance. He also informed that he has approved RRs of DM(HR/Mktg) as 1/3rd and 2/3rd quota, but because there was no post in DM cadre in these disciplines so the post are to be created through up gradation of AM posts and as per rule upgradation can not be done for more than 30 % posts, so he has proposed upgradation of posts in two phases. GS  requested him to consider the upgradation of 2/3rd posts in single phase.  he said issue is further to be discussed with HR wing but no proposal has yet come from HR. Regarding DM(Fin) RR, he said that HR wing has to bring the case to board for its approval. We requested him to get the things expedited for early decision.
  3. Regular Promotion from JAO to AO--   GS pleaded that all JAOs whose seniority issue is in dispute, be promoted in single list because  any  left out  JAO because of non finalization of seniority  list may invite litigation. Dir (Fin)  assured to take care of Association concern.
  4. Trg increment for DR officers---GS apprised him that new CMD is agreed to consider this case if proposal comes with the recommendation of both Directors. He assured positive action at his level.
  5. Financial upgradation from due date if no vig case is pending--He said that he had asked HR wing to take certain steps first to ensure that DPC are conducted on due date after that these cases will be considered. We appreciated for his steps on our conceren to hold DPC on due date but requested for decision on these pending cases also.
