  2. Revival of Sick CPSEs-- He said govt policy in this regard is very clear that sick PSUs which can be revived are to be revived by making all possible efforts and those which can not be revived are to be closed down.
  3. Revision of Pension in MTNL/BSNL--GS explained the issue that Pension to erstwhile DOT employees who have been absorbed in MTNL/BSNL is paid by govt in accordance of 1972 CCS pension rule from civil account so revision of pension should be recommended by Pay revision committee and it should not be left with BSNL/MTNL. He was convinced with our argument and said that you will have to tell this issue to pay revision committee.

21-07-15 Meeting with CMD/ Member (S)----GS along with AGS Com Chaudhary & ACT Com Arun Dixit met CMD at Sanchar Bhawan on 20-07-15 and had discussion on following issues.
  1. Proposal of  CMD to bring sense of ownership of company amongst employees---GS informed CMD/ M(S) that the proposal of generating money through collection from officers is not a viable and acceptable proposition and also expressed general view that this small amount can't do any thing in the revival of company which has Rs.16000 / crore loans on its balance sheet. CMD said that his intention is not to generate funds but to give message to the govt that employees have taken ownership of the company and are bent upon to get the company revived and also to bring sense of commitment of employees to get company revived. He said it is not required to contribute and generate funds but this message can be given even by taking shares of the company or any other short of option which employees feel is viable and acceptable. He also clarified that it is not proposal of the management or DOT but a thought to employees and it is upto them to buy this thought or not.
  2. Revision of Pension through Pay Commission/ Pay revision committee--GS pleaded for writing from DOT to the 7th Pay commission and 3rd pay revision committee of CPSEs to recommend the pension  revision as for Govt employees because now pension to MTNL & BSNL employees is paid from the same  civil account from which pension is paid to DOT employees. Member (S) said he will ask the concerned officers .
  3. Fresh option for combined pension to Pro-rata pension optees--Association requested him to get the process of fresh option expedited  which is stuck in DOT. He said he is not aware of the status and called concerned DDG and also asked us to discuss with him first.
  4. Expansion of WS network--Association pleaded that WS expansion plan should not be stopped because without expansion, we can not improve the growth & quality of WS services. He said that expansion of WS will be there but it needs to be reviewed and he is working on this.
  5. Transferring WS and Transmission maintenance to the Areas--- Association discussed on the success of this model. CMD informed that it is tested model and works successfully. Association discussed the issues related to this model and asked CMD to provide required staff and other resources to make this model effective and successful. He assured all required steps for smooth functioning of the areas.
  6. Customer friendly tariff plans of MTNL services--CMD also felt that MTNL tariff plans of land line & Wireless services are not attractive and customer friendly, so they need to be revised. He said BSNL plan are good and MTNL will also have to match these plans. He said action will be taken in this direction.

Meeting with CMD & Member (Services) Shri N K Yadav--

-GS Shri V K Tomar along with CHQ President Shri S N Prasad, AGS Shri Sanjay Kumar, Circle Secretary Mumbai Shri G P Yadav, Jt CS Mumbai Shri P N Vasane, ACS Mumbai Shri S N Pandit had a meeting with CMD on 02-07-15 and had a detailed discussion on the issues raised by Association in the protest notice and revival of company. Meeting lasted for three hours. Association handed over him a letter reiterating the issues raised by Association and expressing the concern that no progress has been made towards resolution of the issues raised by Association .

CMD had a discussion on  all the issues raised in our letter and we apprised him of the back ground of the issues and necessity to resolve them to get executives motivated. We briefed him on all issues related to Telecom/Finance/HR/Mktg/ Civil/ Elec/Hindi/ CS/Legal / Direct recruited officers 30% corpus, increment/ DPC/ time bound Promotions, med capping, working spouse, etc and other issues like 1999-2000 year of recruitment JTOs promotion, waiting list of LICE. On some of the issues his approach was very positive and he marked those issues and asked association to further discuss all the issues with Dir (HR). He also marked our letter to Dir (HR) for discussion & n/a on the issues raised by Association. We have informed CMD that if no positive progress takes place on the issues raised by the Association, we will be compelled to go on agitation further.

A detailed discussion was held on 78.2% fitment on which Association explained how this issue is important to be resolved at the earliest which is not only impacting present financial benefits but terminal benefits also and employees are being deprived from their legitimate rights which have been given by Govt. CMD/ M(S) reiterated the  same old version of the management and DOT that MTNL is in huge losses and revenue is declining day by day. He also said that free roaming decision of govt has also impacted by Rs 300 crore revenue loss in MTNL. We  strongly reacted that company's financial condition has worsen because of govt policies and decision. Present 300 crore lose is also because of govt decision, than why employees should suffer when they only implement Govt/ Management policies. GS explained how govt policies has destroyed the  company and the efforts made by Association to oppose the policies and improve the financial condition of the MTNL.We got him convinced that employees have no role in today's financial condition of the company, but it is because of govt policies.

He asked us to keep 78.2% fitment pending till MTNL / BSNL merger on which call is to be taken by Govt after IIM (Benglore) report which is expected after two weeks. We kept insisting on resolution of 78.2% fitment without any condition. After long discussion, he was of the opinion that possibilities can be explored how 78.2% fitment can be given to those who are retiring, because after retirement govt has to take the financial liability of the pension. We have maintained that Association will keep fighting for 78.2% fitment for all.

A detailed discussion was also held on revival of MTNL. Association clearly asked him whether govt wants to revive MTNL or not. He firmly said yes MTNL will be revived but there may be some changes in it. He also shared how revenue can be increased in land line by improving BB services and specially by providing Wi Fi facility to all customers. He also shared how 3G services can be provided in 900 MHz band. This issue was discussed in length with our  Technical Core group members of Mumbai circle and it will be further discussed after detailed discussion with other technical experts. Association placed its view that without 3G services MTNL can not survive and this service has to continue. Detailed discussion was also held on other services and suggestions were given by association.

Discussion was also held on MTNL and BSNL merger. Association has made it clear that we are for merger and issues which are coming in the way of merger were discussed ,Association also suggested the solutions of some of the issues related to the merger.

CMD said that there should not be any problem in resolving the issues which are not having much financial implication but the issues having financial implications need to be discussed with the backdrop of revenue increase. This was not the formal meeting on agenda so no discussion was held on agenda points which will be discussed later on with CMD and Director (HR). He said time is very less to get company revived; we cannot wait for years to see the results so things require changing in months.

He said that their presence in the programme has shown that we are fully prepared to fight for our legitimate rights and explained why we went on the agitational part. He said that company's today 's financial condition is not because of employees but it is because of govt policies which has been admitted time and again by UPA and NDA govt than why employees be held responsible and deny their rights which have been ordered by govt like 78.2% fitment, LTC etc. He also explained how HR issues are pending for quite long time and because of that executives are demoralized and demotivated..

GS said that in last few days during Association meeting with CMD & Dir (HR), some thing positive have been assured to look into the issues raised by Association  and also to expedite the pending HR issues. Keeping in view this postive gesture by managment, Association is not immediately intensifying its agitational programme. But, if things do not move positively than Association will be compelled to intensify the agitational programme. And this time it may be a Joint struggle of Association and unions.

He also said that Shri N K Yadav   Member (services) has taken over the additional cha rge of CMD MTNL and  has shown keen interest and initiate to improve the financial condition of MTNL. So we will have to  work hard to see the positive out come in the days to come and hoped that Shr N K Yadav will improve  the system and eliminate the tendency of  indecisiveness in MTNL.. Our whole efforts will remain to see the revival of the company and so GS appealed all officers to do their best to improve the performance of company to get it revived

V K Tomar, GS, MEA

 

   
04-05-15 Observe demand day on 5th June ,15 by wearing badges by all executives in Delhi & Mumbai  to wake up the unconcerned management towards revival of company and legitimate, long due rights and impending HR issues as well. Com, we do'nt find any body in the management serious and concerned about the improvement of service and growth of company to get it revived and there is total ignorance towards the legitimate rights and long pending HR issues of the executives who have to play a vital role in this period of crisis in the company which has been forced on us because of wrong govt policies and ineffective management.

One has to raise voice and fight for the legitimate rights and against injustice. If we do'nt do than  it shows that we our self are not serious for our rights than how any body else will think about us. If we want company to be revived and get our legitimate rights than we will have to come out and fight. Feel proud by wearing demand badges and participating in demonstration because it is the duty of every individual to raise voice against injustice and demand legitimate rights.

DO YOUR DUTY TOWARDS YOURSELF, IT IS OUR DHARMA.

WEAR DEMAND BADGES on 5th JUNE & PARTICIPATE IN DEMONSTRATION on 10th JUNE in FULL STRENGTH.

All CHQ/Circle/Area/Div Office bearers of Delhi & Mumbai are appealed to mobilize and make all preparation for making both the programmes successful.

17-05-15                             Delhi Circle CEC Meeting---

CEC meeting was held on 16-05-15 in KBN which was attended by about 100 CHQ/Circle office bearers and CEC members. Meeting was presided over by Circle President Shri S R Singh. GS & CS Delhi addressed the CEC and apprised about latest developments on various issues related to the revival of company and welfare of executives. CEC had a detailed discussion on improving the services. Area Secretaries presented their Area report on organizational activities, meetings with Management, resolution of issues and  membership. Circle Organizing Secretaries Com S N Rathi,  Com C P Baliyan and JS Com R S Maan gave detailed suggestions on improvement of services. GS Com V K Tomar and CS Com Sunil Kumar expressed their serious concern over delay in fault rectification and stressed for doing all out efforts to improve the services and bring customer satisfaction. GS explained how the quality of service is important not only in generating the revenue but also influencing the opinion of the govt to revive the company. CEC was very much concerned about improving the services and revival of the company. CEC members gave many suggestions but felt that suggestions and  ideas given by the Junior and middle level officers  as well as Association are not taken seriously by Sr Officers and management. CEC also expressed that officers whose stake is not with the company are not doing proactively for the revival of the company and welfare of the staff.. There is also a strong resentment amongst the executives of MTNL that their long pending legitimate  issues are also not being considered by management and because of this there is demotivation and demoralization  amongst them which adversely affects the revival efforts of a company like MTNL where there is  lack of every resources except human resource which is also not being taken care by management. CEC decided that before fighting with the govt for policy matters for the revival of the company, Association must protest before the management to improve our internal system and policies and also for settlement of our long pending HR issues.

Similar opinion was given by the  MEA Mumbai Circle. Therefore, keeping in view the growing discontentment amongst the executives of Delhi and Mumbai. Association decided to protest before the MTNL management for the MTNL revival and 78.2% fitment, LTC, PSU hierarchy Time bound functional Promotion, 30% corpus for post retirement benefits, revision of perks, removing ceiling of Medical OPD, filling all vacant posts of executives & other  pending HR issues.

Financial woes force MTNL to go slow, says Parliament panel

NEW DELHI, APRIL 24:  

Severe financial problems had forced Mahanagar Telecom Nigam Ltd (MTNL) to go slow on development projects, as a result of which they were not in a position to upgrade their network, said a Parliament Committee on Friday. “During the last three years, MTNL has made very limited investment in the network segment that had affected MTNL’s ability to provide quality services. The physical achievements of MTNL during 2014-15 have been far from satisfactory,” the Standing Committee on Information Technology report tabled in Lok Sabha on Friday said.

3--Deputation to other PSUs---Association demanded that officers be allowed for deputation to other PSUs. But CMD did not agree and said that if deputation is allowed good officers will only go and it will be loss of talent to the company so  it can not be allowed.

captioned matter was listed today as Item No. 27 in Court No. 3 at the CAT, Principal Bench before the Hon'ble Members Shri V. Ajay Kumar and Shri P.K. Basu.

Mr. Rajshekhar Rao appeared on behalf of the Applicants (MEA).  Senior Advocate, Ms. Jyoti Singh appeared on behalf of MTNL, assisted by Sikri and Company. Mr. MK Bhardwaj also appeared on behalf of the impleaded respondents who had moved an application for vacation of Stay on the result of the examinations as was directed vide Order dated 07.03.2014.
 Mr. Rao advanced submissions highlighting the fact that the RRs were executive instructions and not statutory rules which had legislative backing. For that, the representations made to the employees in 2000 and pursuant to the settlement in 2002, the department cannot resile from its assurances made, because it was on the basis of that representation, did the employees choose to opt for MTNL for better career progression. He further submitted that the impugned RRs and the advertisement permitted lateral entry to the extent of 25% which was against the Settlement arrived at between the Applicants and the Department as far back as in 2002.
 However, due to paucity of time, the matter could not be heard in completion and hence has been adjourned to Monday i.e. 24.11.2014 under the 'Part Heard' category

GS, Com V K Tomar along with CHQ Vice President Com Praveen Passi, AGS, Com D P S Chaudhary & CS Com Sunil Kumar met Secretary DOT & Chairman Telecom Commission Shri Rakesh Garg today and had detailed discussion on following issues- At the outset, GS explained the financial condition of the MTNL and the prevailing uncertainty over the mode of   revival of MTNL/BSNL and diverse views of the govt reported by media. GS stressed on revival of MTNL through merger or no merger. We also brought to his knowledge the shortage of BTS and other resources for expansion and maintenance of services and also the huge liability of Rs 1400 crore interest PA, which he took seriously and seemed to be positive towards the revival of MTNL/BSNL.

1---Merger of MTNL & BSNL--

Secretary was surprised over the media report regarding ruling out of merger by PM Shri Narendra Modi. He said that matter has not yet gone to PM so there is no question of rejecting or accepting the proposal of merger by Prime Minister, so media report has no truth. He said it is under consideration and will be decided only after the reports of three committees of operation, finance and HR. He said HR issues will be more critical in this matter.But he said that Government intension is very clear to revive MTNL and BSNL and there is no thought of shutting down these PSUs, but he was not satisfied with the services given by both the companies and said that in Kashmir tragedy, the restoration of mobile tower is lowest of BSNL in comparison of  Private operators and he asked us to improve the services. GS explained all the constraints in expansion and maintenance of services of MTNL because of non availability of funds and other resources.

Revival of MTNL through additional source of revenue--

GS explained how it is difficult to see the revival of MTNL with the present set of services being offered by MTNL that to in only two metro cities where tele-density is already 140% and there are no funds available for expansion and maintenance of services. GS asked Secretary to give the work for additional source of revenue generation through MTNL participation in Digital India Programme of Govt of India, Cloud computing, Surveillance/ Security schemes of govt etc and presented a 60 pages power point presentation prepared by Dir (HR) MTNL for his consideration and he assured to look into this presentation and also call MTNL Management next week to discuss the issues related to the revival of MTNL.

Posting of regular CMD & Director (Tech)---

We raised that there is no regular CMD in MTNL for quite some time, which affects the performance of the company and Dir (Tech) post is also vacant for last 3 years and surprisingly no one is even looking after this post for last 5 months, because of this, many decisions to be taken by Dir (Tech) are pending like DPCs, appeals in disciplinary cases and many more decisions related to the services also.

Secretary said very clearly that CMD selection is pending because of pending merger issue, but assured that DOT will issue the orders of looking after of Director (Tech) post.

Payment of BWA refund charges

We raised that MTNL is under huge debt and is struggling to meet the expenditures and taking loans to pay salary while the BWA refund approved by Govt is yet to be received by MTNL. We requested him to consider the early payment. He assured to look into this issue.

In the discussion, Secretary said that there is lack of motivation amongst the staff of govt companies in comparison to other private companies. We informed him the reasons of de-motivation amongst MTNL staff that are stagnation in one cadre for more than 15 years that to in young and qualified officers, capping on perks and allowances, denial of 78.2% fitment etc. So he could not say much and listened every thing patiently and his response was very positive and encouraging in all issues.

Meeting was very effective and succesful in respect of turning arround MTNL.

News related to MTNL & BSNL Merger

KOLKATA: The telecom department (DoT) is considering either de-listing Mahanagar Telephone Nigam (MTNL) and then merging it into Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL), or listing the latter and finalising a merger swap ratio based on the valuation of the two state-run telecom companies, with the first being the more likely option, top government officials told ET.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided not to merge state-owned telecom companies MTNL and BSNL, a move that could well be termed as the first by the present NDA government to overturn a major decision of the previous UPA government.
Sources in the government said that instead of infusing fresh capital or merging them to revive the cash-strapped and loss-making BSNL and MTNL, the Prime Minister has asked the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to consider a proposal for the outright purchase of the optic fibre cable (OFC) network of the former, which is the largest in the country. “Once owned by the DoT, the OFC network could be used for early rollout of the government’s ambitious ‘Digital India’ programme,” they added.
The government’s “Digital India” programme aims to provide broadband connectivity to all 20 lakh village panchayats and also build wifi-enabled “smart cities”.
By a very rough estimate, made recently, the government would need an 18-lakh to 20-lakh route km OFC network to take broadband all across the country.

  3. 30% Superannuation benefits---This issue was raised but no much discussion was held because in last meeting also CMD was of the opinion that this issue will be considered in the light of the decision in BSNL.
  4. Separate funds for CETTM/ITTM-- we apprised him how it is very difficult to meet the expenditure of training centers in the absence of separate funds for them and how they are facing difficulty in meeting day to day  requirement. He did not agree for separate fund in the present financial condition of the company but assured that any fund required for important expenditure will be approved by CO on priority basis.
  5.  Discussion on services and financial condition of MTNL and also merger of MTNL & BSNL was also held. GS  again suggested CMD that  these short meetings will not be helpful for identifying the problems and finding solutions, but a  comprehensive and detailed discussions and meetings are required between the staff/officers side representatives and MTNL board to understand and find the solutions of today's deep crises of the company. CMD  agreed on our view point .
   
10-09-14 Meeting with Director (HR)---GS along with CHQ President Shri  S N Prasad, Jt Secretary Shri  D K Chaddha, Shri Shivanand Pandit & Shri Mukesh Kahar our Comrades from Mumbai met Director (HR) on 09-09-14 and discussed following issues. GM(HR) Shri  N K Joshi was also present in the meeting.
  1. Immediate Ist promotion from AM to DM by scrapping E3 RRs--We strongly expressed that because of  long stagnation in AM cadre in different disciplines, there is deep resentment and frustration in the officers because of many reasons like pending court cases, non availability of RRs, non availability of sufficient number of posts to give fast promotions through post based promotion policy. So we suggested that  to come out of all hurdles, there is one solution to scrape RRs at E3 level and promote all AMs in different disciplines to the Post of DM with the financial upgradation. Director (HR) said that MTNL and BSNL merger is under consideration and  HR committee is going to start  consultation with Unions and Associations on HR issues,  so no fresh issues can be taken up in isolation in MTNL, only the issues of present RRs and Promotion Policies can be discussed  and he said that committee will invite the Association shortly for consultation on HR issues. He asked us to flag out the issues to be shorted out in the light of on going process of merger.
  2. Counting training period for withdrawing increment--We requested  him to again put the case for revisit by the present CMD. He said that case was recommended by him and Director (Fin), but was regretted by CMD on the ground that there is no provision in RRs . Dir (HR) asked us to represent the case with additional supporting facts to put the case again because without any additional supporting facts, case can not be put up again on the same facts  and ground on which case has already been regretted by the CMD.
  3. Including working spouse in OPD--In this case also Director (Fin) had  not agreed on certain grounds, It will again be discussed with GM(HR) to prepare the case again by addressing the queries by DF.
  4. CETTM/ ITTM issues---  We  had already provided the brief of all the issues related to CETTM. He informed that regarding  providing funds to CETTM for their requirments, decision has been taken in ECM to retain certain % with CETTM.. other issues including  faculty  & non faculty will be discussed first with CGM/ED and again with DH.
  5. 30% Corpus for post retirement benefits---a brief discussion was held because he was not much equipped with this issue which had been discussed two three times with CMD/Dir (Fin) in detailed. He sought a brief detail on this issue from Addl GM(P) Shri M K Saxena who was also present in the meeting. Because of paucity of time no detailed discussion could take place .

     Regarding issues having financial implication, he said will not be considered at this point of time when there is deficit of Rs 225 crore per month. Association will further discuss with CMD and decided accordingly.
