19/03/2023 :Update about the Actions of SNEA about EPFO's 26(6) demand for exercising Higher Pension Option

The National Council for Officers Association(NCOA) is the Consortium of all Major Associations of PSUs in India, in which SNEA has the leading Role. Taking the Role of the Working President of the Consortium by GS SNEA has decided to go for Contempt Case filed against the EPFO's recent demand for proof of submission of 26(6) which is against the Orders from Hon. Supreme court, mainly because EPFO themselves replied in an RTI that not even a single permission under 26(6) was issued by EPFO so far.  Hence they are asking employees to submit something that is non-existent and hence impossible to submit.

Leading Advocates shall be appearing in Supreme Court on behalf of NCOA & SNEA in this regard. Earlier also, NCOA has fought the EPFO case at Supreme Court level, along with other PSU Employees in India for which SNEA also has contributed a big amount for appearing for the EPFO Case vide WPC 1134 of 2018. It is important to note while others were busy in legal fund collection, SNEA had unanimously decided to go along with NCOA at the supreme court level by contributing a big amount for Higher EPF Pension Case, without any fund collection from individuals because SNEA wanted a ruling from Supreme Court which will be benefiting all the EPF Members of BSNL eligible for exercising Higher Pension Option and don't want to limit to any officers who are participating in the case in some of the lower courts.

At present also since BSNL is an All India Organization, and since the 26(6) condition is equally affecting other PSUs also, we need an instruction from the Hon. Supreme Court to get the benefit all India level. This is the way SNEA is working for the good future of the Employees. Irrespective of PSUs, Irrespective of Executive or Non Executive, Irrespective of Association, Irrespective of whether they are part of any cases related to EPFO, everyone will be benefitted with the ongoing process of NCOA supported by SNEA.

IMG2023/Congratz to LICE JTOs 2023.jpeg

Relieving of Sri.Tenson Joseph from Lakshadweep

GM HR assured the relieving of Tenson Joseph without further delay and also to remove from Circle long stay considering his service tenure in LKD. A seperate letter to Corp.Off will be sent by this weekend.

Rule 8 transfers

SNEA pointed out the undue delay in implementation of completed Rule 8 requests and also to expedite the processing of all pending requests with concerned Circles. GM HR positively responded and replied to issue the completed Rule 8 transfers by March end.

Rule 9 extension of executives in Kerala Circle on account of recent Corporate Office letter

GM HR assured to take up the extension requests with Corporate Office.

Posting LICE JTOs on completion of filed training

SNEA once again demanded the postings as per requests .

GM HR in principle assured that all the requests shall be considered positively. We suggested to expand the Mobile Services at Calicut. So diversification makes more vacancies at MS Calicut which leads to more ideas and processes results in Productivity increase by executives.

We demanded to publish BA wise vacancies before operating Inter BA long stay transfers.

GM HR assured the same.

Processing of requests of Deputation to DoT

We requested to process all the  requests of officers including ALP and EKM for  Deputation to DoT. GM HR assured to consider the same after discussing with CGMT.

Request Transfer of officers to home BA, posted on the basis of long-stay to other BAs  - who are completing two years during the month of April 2023.

GM HR assured to consider all such cases including the requests of executives from PTA and ALP.

SDE Reversal issue of Kerala Circle

06/02/2023 :Posting of Newly promoted JTOs through LICE for Field Training:

CS SNEA writes to CGMT Kerala by pointing out the anomalies on Posting of Newly promoted JTOs through LICE for Field Training.

SNEA Kerala demands review and modifications in recently issued orders.

See the detailed letter

04/02/2023 :Meeting with GM HR to discuss re-allotment of JTO Trainees for field training:

After continuous persuasion with Management, it was decided to re-allot the JTO Trainees  having genuine health conditions including lactating mothers, orders for which would be issued shortly (mainly from TCR, ALP and QLN BAs etc.)

Other JTO Trainees who have been posted out of their parent BAs for the field training shall be considered positively and will be posted back to parent BA after completion of their field training along with pending OTP transfer requests.

03/02/2023 : Hearty Congratulations to New JTOs..

Hearty Congratulations to New JTOs... But Promotion should not be a Punishment

At the outset SNEA Kerala congratulated all the JTO Trainees who qualified the examination and got posted to different units. In the posting orders published we have seen unprecedented postings which disheartened most of the new JTOs. It seems like, administration took this promotion of JTOs as a tool for punishment.

When there were two requests from Kozhikode to Ernakulam, none of those requests were considered, instead the other Five JTOs from Kozhikode were transferred to Ernakulam.

 A large number of JTOs are posted to CnTx South when many officers during the recent past were relieved to Circle without Substitute due to Surplus staff. Some persons with low marks are posted in the same BA when higher mark candidates are posted outside the BA.

 Officials with medical grounds who recently got the posting in some BA were transferred out in the current posting without considering their Medical conditions.

Humanitarian consideration cannot be seen in most of the cases where Couples were posted in two different stations without asking their options before posting orders are issued.

 It is seen that a large number of JTOs were posted to Lakshadweep beyond the actual requirements.

When there are enough OTP transfer requests from Malappuram to outside and our agreement for relieving all those requested officers without Substitute during March and when we can post 8 new JTOs  after training to their Home BA Malappuram, it is surprising to see that most of those new JTOs are posted outside.

SNEA Kerala strongly protested in this unilateral posting orders of Kerala Circle and Circle Treasurer, ACS, CWC Member and Organizing Secretary of SNEA Kerala met GM HR and strongly registered our protest and conveyed the agony of New JTOs about their protest. We hope that the Administration would review the Posting orders and incorporate necessary changes considering the actual filed realities and sentiments of New JTOs.

We, SNEA Kerala, on behalf of entire JTOs, again reiterate that The Promotions should not be a Punishment.

01/02/2023 : Update :

In the Pending Court case at CAT Chandigarh about DGM Adhoc to DGM Regular Promotions,  hearing could not take place today, and next date of hearing is fixed as 10/02/2023.

With profound grief and sorrow, we express deepest condolences in the loss of a great leader Com.P.V.Chandrasekharan (78 years). Comrade PVC left to heavenly abode yesterday night (9/10/22) at Amritha Hospital, Ernakulam.

He uncompromisingly fought against the management of BSNL Kerala Circle in the period 2014-15 in forefront along with SNEA. His friendly approach and caring attitude has weathered many crises. His contributions as a leader who actively engaged in our issues with his kind words will always be remembered. His demise is a great loss to the Telecommunication fraternity.
