14-08-15 Meeting with Jt Secretary (T), DOT---GS Sh V K Tomar along with  AGS Sh D P S Chaudhary, Shri Dharamraj Singh & Shri Subhash Gupta, General secretary & President of MTNL Mazdoor Sangh (Recognized Union) met Jt Secretary Shri Umashankar,IAS on 13-08-15 and had a detailed discussion on following issues
  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.
