07-05-2022 GS writes letter to Secy DOT, CMD MTNL, DIR(HR) MTNL regarding Manpower restructuring and promotion of executives. <<letter>>


Meeting with Director( HR)---GS, Sh V K Tomar along with Sh R S Maan, VP, Sh Satyavir Singh, AGS, Sh Sunil Sonkar, AGS & Sh Sunil Kumar, CS, Delhi met Director ( HR) on 5th May 2022. GM(HR), DGM(HR)s were also present in the meeting.
Following issues were discussed

1. 2nd revival package of MTNL/ BSNL...Dir (HR) informed that DoT, after inter-ministerial consultation, has sent cabinet note on 2nd revival package to cabinet, in this cabinet note there are many proposals for way forward of BSNL/ MTNL revival. Let us wait for the decision of the cabinet on these proposals.

2..Regular promotions of Executives--Association expressed its deep concern over undue delay in promotions of executives of all wings. Dir(HR) said that restructuring is expected to be finalize by end of this month , and after that DPCs for promotions will be started. Association informed Dir(HR) that it is learnt that restructuring committee is going to recommend very less number of posts of SM and DGM because they are comparing the Delhi/ Mumbai with other metro cities of BSNL like Kolkata/ Chennai and also taking the criteria of executives posts on the basis of present working connection. This criteria of restructuring of man power was strongly opposed by Association and submitted that significance, demography and strategic importance of these two capital cities can not be compared with other cities. And also officers strength is to be decided keeping in view the future growth and development of the company as well as total network, not merely on present working connection. One other factor was also brought to the knowledge of Dir ( HR) that in Kolkata/ Chennai, there are thousands of JE/ TTA working in these cities, while there is no such supporting staff in MTNL and so all work is done by AM/ DM/ SM/ DGM.
More over, less number of posts in SM and DGM will affect the promotions of officers who are stagnating in one cadre for 20 years. So promotions are to be given on time bound basis or posts are to be created in such a way that officers get promotion in 8/ 10 years.

Director ( HR) was very cooperative in the discussion and reciprocated in the very positive way who asked Association to give its views again in writing on promotions and restructuring. He also sought certain information from committee member on the basis of facts raised by MEA.

3..30% Corpus...Dir( HR) categorically said that this issue is with CMD and so is to be discussed with CMD only

4...Enhancement in IPD limit...Association opined that present IPD limit of 6 lakhs is very less so it is to be increased atleast to 10 lakhs. It was also informed to Dir(HR) that during last protest of Forum on this issue, CMD assured to review and enhance it. Dir(HR), after discussion with concerened dealing officers said that this issue of IPD enhancement will be taken up when present IPD insurence scheme is reviewed in June 2022.

5..Trg increment for MTNL recruited officers/ employees:

Dir(HR) was elaborately apprised of the past developments on this issue and requested him to reopen and settle it. He discussed this issue with keen intrest but was not in position in this issue neither to deny nor accept. We will further discuss with him and CMD.
6.Enhancement of transport allowances.. Association raised that transport allowance of Rs 750/ is too less which has not been revised for almost last 20 years. He said issue of revision of transport allowance is also being raised in BSNL. We asked him to bring us to the level of BSNL transport allowance at least. On this issue also he remained indecisive. Issue will be further taken up with CMD.

7..Five days week in CO
BSNL board is looking after the MTNL board and ultimately both the boards are to be merged and there is 5 days week in BSNL CO, So, there should also be 5 days week in MTNL CO. By doing so, MTNL can save electricity / water charges and other expenditure. Association has raised this issue for consideration of management.

8..Entitlement of staff quarters on the basis of grade instead of post. Association has raised this issue. Dir(HR) will look into it.
9..Confirmation of 2019 AM(T) batch... Association raised this issue and informed Dir( HR) that this issue has been discussed two times but still confirmation orders are pending because of pendency of case of one officer. Association asked to issue confirmation orders of the batch immediately. Dir ( HR) assured that orders will be issued shortly.

10--Pending antidation cases.. Association informed Dir ( HR) that in-spite of repeated request from Association and direction from him to concerned officers, antidation cases are still pending. Dir ( HR) again asked concerened officers to initiate the
