05-10-2018:- For kind attention of recognized unions & Negotiation Commiittee.In the last round of discussion it is observed that the recognized unions have accepted the pay scales offered by the BSNL with a slight modification in the maximum pay of NE-4 and NE-5. The next round of discussion is stated to be for allowances. Thus it is clear that the recognized unions have closed the pay chapter without any decision, discussion on negotiation on the following issues. In order to avoid further problems while fixing the pay of BSNL employees, these issues are to be discussed in detail and decisions taken before starting negotiation for revision of allowances. Will they do it?
Issues to be discussed
1) How to fix the pay as on 01.01.2017 in the new pay scale?
a) Percentage of fitment benefit in clear terms.
b) Rounding off of Pay after giving fitment benefit.
2) What is the fitment to be given on promotion. For Central scale 3% increment is given besides grade pay. BSNL has no grade pay. Then what is the extra benefit given on promotion? Our proposal is for 5% benefit.
3) What about upgradation of the pay scales of Sr. TOA. Why it was not discussed? Whether decision of the JCM (DC) of DOT will be implemented or not. It may be noted that the other decision of revision of pay scale of TTAs was implemented form 01.10.2000 itself.
4) If the fitment benefit is not committed in the agreement it will affect the pension revision also. So it is very much necessary to specify in the agreement.
5) Pension contribution as per FR 116 also should be insisted as for the ITS officers working in BSNL on deputation it is given for the actual pay only. There should be no discrimination and also no violation of statutory rule i.e.FR116.
6) The cost of this revision in all aspects should be discussed transparently by the staff side with the official side. Detailed calculation sheet should be placed for discussion. FNTO has already given a calculation sheet of additional cost and also savings of salary and pension contribution on account of retirement in the year 2017. More than 42000 employees are likely to be retired from 2018 to 2020. The cost savings on account of these retirements also needs to be discussed in detail in the committee. Net expenditure will be far less.

27-09-2018:-Ulta Chor Kotwal ko dante!

The BSNL workers by now realized that the wage negotiations are conducting by the chief negotiator the BSNLEU half hearty colliding with the BSNL administration and there is every possibility of ditching them as done in the last wage revision. The BSNLEU is so desperate that, they started abusing the FNTO that we are exploiting the anxiety of the employees by spreading lies and slanders. No, we are saying the truth and we will exposé there under hand dealing in front of the workers. Don’t underestimate the workers, they are intelligent, fouling them will back fire.

Com.P.Abimanayu, GS, BSNLEU confirmed that, in the meeting held with CMD BSNL on 09-08-2018 he was quoting the DPE letter dated 03-08-2017, according to which the BSNL Employees are not eligible for wage revision”. Why this point raised by the union in the meeting? Is the CMD was not aware of this letter? Why should they remind the CMD a negative point? The fact is that the Hon’ble Minister for communication in his statement in the Parliament on 08-08-2018 clarified that the BSNL is making operative profit and the affordability condition is not applicable to BSNL. Despite this the BSNLEU is spreading lies that the BSNL workers are not eligible for wage revision. Why and what is the hidden agenda?

At last, BSNLEU accepted that the Dr. recruited TTAs (JE) appointed on 01-01-2007 were drawing less pay than the pre revised pay scale due to the faulty implementation of the last wage revision. However, without any shame they claim that to substantiate the wage loss they fought and got ONE INCREMENT to Dr. recruited TTAs. The question is why they agreed to downgrade the TTAs (JE) with one increment, when similarly appointed JTOs and JAOs were given THREE INCREMENTS. Even that one increment is not given to the Sr.TOAs who was placed similarly. The faulty pay scales of last time brought thousands of BSNL workers particularly the Group D staff on stagnation and huge financial losses. Shameful! BSNLEU is not an expert negotiator as they claim.

All these are the creation of BSNLEU due to acceptance of 68.8% IDA merger when the Govt. orders exist for 78.2%. Had it been done for 78.2% IDA, nobody including the Executives, Non-Executives and Pensioners would have lost the arrears for 6 ½ years.

The Non-executive of BSNL are entitled to get at least 15% fitment as promised by the BSNL CMD. If you cannot get that fitment it will be your failure!

We are not shedding any crocodile tears. We have done much more than you for the workers. Could you get the 78.2% DA merger agreement till the FNTO joined the agitation? You were going on agitating for the wage revision committee, nobody bothered to settle the issue till the FNTO joined in series of agitations and the two day strike. Can you deny it? But once the formation of wage committee is settled, you ditched us, even avoid us while discussing with administration.

Who betrayed the workers history will say. Don’t forget, when FNTO and others were on strike on the issue of corporatization, the BSNLEU ditch the workers, did not joined nation vide strike. FNTO won the historic strike, solved most the issues including pension for BSNL workers from the consolidated fund of India. This historic decision of PENSION is given to only BSNL not to any PSUs of this country. The BSNLEU is not a party to this achievement.

In the first wage revision committee of 2001-02, BSNLEU was not invited to join the wage negotiation. But it was our magnanimity that we convinced the administration and allowed BSNLEU leaders in the committee, despite objection from senior leader like O.P Gupta ji. (SG NFTE) But BSNLEU always ungrateful towards FNTO. They never reciprocated our goodwill. In that wage revision was incomparable and we were able to negotiate and brought Rs. 4000 to Rs.6000 benefits for the BSNL workers on IDA scale. Now let us watch, what the workers will get now?

Only the recognized unions can discuss the policy matters with regard to BSNL employees. It is their duty to set right the things. For their failures they should not blame other unions. FNTO will always raise its voices on policy failures by the recognized unions to take note for correction. If they don’t do it BSNL workers will take note of their failures.

27-09-2018:-For the attention of the negotiating team for wage revision of BSNL Non-Executive Employees from 01.01.2017

BSNLEU and NFTE BSNL are concerned only about stagnation in the new scale because of their bitter experience of 01.01.2007 scales. Actually there will be no stagnation in the new scale proposed by the BSNL Management and after fixation on 01.01.2017 an employee will get an average of ten increments thereafter. Therefore the recognized unions should concentrate on the following demands.
1) Ensure 15% fitment benefit for all employees as assured by the CMD.
2) Ensure 5% increase on promotion instead of 3% to Non-Executive employees.
3) Upgradation of pay scale of Sr. TOA as per the decision of the JCM (DC) of DOT taken before formation of BSNL and directed the BSNL to settle it within 15 days of formation.
4) Rounding off of pay to be fixed on 01.01.2017 to the next 100 rupees instead of ten rupees as this Ten rupees has no value at all now.
FNTO has already submitted a detailed note justifying the above demands to the chairman of the negotiating committee. Will the recognized unions concentrate on these issues?

27-09-2018:-DoT to conduct special audit on telcos from FY-2012 onwards
The audit, to be resumed after a gap of three years, comes when license fee and SUC due to the government fell in 2017 by more than 23% on the year and is expected to fall this year too.
Mumbai: The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) is set to conduct “special audits” of mobile phone operators from fiscal year 2011-12 onwards to check for under-reporting of revenue that might account for a sharp downturn in license fees and spectrum usage charges (SUC). Annual license fees and SUC paid to the government are calculated based on a telcos revenue.
The audit, to be resumed after a gap of three years, comes when license fee and SUC due to the government fell in 2017 by more than 23% on the year and is expected to fall this year too. This is due to the brutal price war which expedited a bloody consolidation that saw a spate of exits and M&As and dented telecom revenues.
Carriers fear the new round of audit could lead to a new dues being demanded from the already stressed sector, sparking more litigation and be a drag on time and resources.
“All telecom companies will be audited soon and we are preparing for this. This will be the third audit and notices will go out soon,” said a senior DoT official, who did not want to be named.
ET has learnt that debt-laden Aircel, in the midst of bankruptcy proceedings, has already received the notice on the forthcoming audit.
“DoT proposes to conduct audit/special audit of Aircel for the period of seven years for financial year 2011-2012 to 2017-2018,” said the letter sent to Aircel. These special audits are under clauses 22.5 and 22.6 of Unified Access Service License which allows the DoT to comb the books of the operators.
In the notice, the DoT said it can “conduct an audit/special audit to detect any under reporting of revenues by the licensee with a view to secure the government dues of license fees and spectrum usage charges”.
Many players have quit the business since 2017 or have merged, unable to survive the competition. For example, Vodafone and Idea merged, while Bharti Airtel bought Telenor India and is buying Tata Teleservices wireless business.
Additionally, Reliance Communications (RCom), which had bought Sistema Shyam Teleservices, and Aircel have shut their wireless services. This leaves Bharti Airtel, Vodafone Idea and Reliance Jio – which started operations in September 2016 triggering the tariff war– as the only private sector telcos in the market.
Last year, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) pulled up six telcos - Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, Idea Cellular, Aircel, RCom and Sistema Shyam - for allegedly understating their revenue by Rs61,064.5 crore over five financial years - from FY 2010-11 till FY 2014-15 – leading to the government losing out on Rs12,229.24 crore as payment from spectrum charges and interest.
The DoT itself conducted two audits previously - for years FY 2006 to FY 2008 in 2009 - and for three years from FY 2009-to FY 2011, in 2015/2016. The first audit led to demand notices for Rs1,846.51 crore being issued to five telcos. All demands have been challenged in court.
The second one – which followed a CAG audit that revealed under reporting of revenue to the tune of Rs 46,045.75 crore between 2006-07 and 2009-10, causing a loss of Rs 12,488.93 crore to the government - led to demands of over Rs12,000 crore on six telcos, but is also stuck in court.
“Special audits typically happen when the DoT is not convinced about account reporting and the concern is mainly on the AGR calculations that are defined differently. They have every right to audit, but if operators again decide to challenge the new findings, it will lead to more legal cases,” said Rajan Mathews, director general of Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), which represents telcos.
Historically, telcos have stymied DoT’s efforts to recover SUC and license fees on the grounds that the definition of adjusted gross revenue (AGR) – or revenue derived from licensed services – is still to be decided by the courts.
Mathews said that in 2017, the industry had recommended that there should be only one audit that takes care of concerns of all regulatory bodies, else “they impact business hours and operations since behind each audit resources are set aside and they last for many weeks”.
“This will be another way for the telecom department to see if they can charge us any other kind of dues. And this is contradictory to DoT’s stated claim that it wants to reduce litigation,” said a senior executive at one of the telcos who did not want to be identified.
While officials in DoT downplayed the latest audit saying it was routine, telco executives said it cannot be ignored that in the last few years the industry has clashed with regulator and government on calculations of dues locking up nearly Rs 80,000 crore is litigation.

22-09-2018:-Regarding 15% fitment benefit our rejoinder to BSNLEU.

We have no doubt about the grant of 15% fitment benefit for new scales. This was already told by the CMD on 09.08.2017 to the recognized unions.
Com. Abimanyu as if he is the owner of the company questioned the CMD as to how it is possible. He has gone one step upwards and told that the BSNL employees are not eligible for wage revision as the BSNL is running in loss for more than 3 years. (See their website of 09.08.2017)
Despite that, the CMD and BSNL Board approved the pay revision of Executives with 15% fitment benefits. Therefore there is no doubt about the quantum of fitment benefit. Only the representative unions are telling as if the DOT suggests 0 to 5% fitment benefit to BSNL staff.
While revising the pay scales it is to be done in such a way that the existing employees appointed after the cut off date of revision of wages i.e. 01.01.2017 should not get less than what they were getting before the revision takes place. The revision of pay scales of TTAs from 01.01.2007 is a classic example
For 01.01.2007 revision the agreement was delayed by more than 3 ½ years. In the pre-revised scales the TTAs appointed on or after 01.01.2007 were drawing more than the minimum of the pay fixed in the revised scale for TTAs. That discrepancy led to the demand for extension of 30% fitment benefit to those who were appointed on or after 01.01.2007 also. Normally even in CDA revisions the fitment benefit is given only to those who were on the rolls of BSNL before the cut of date for revision of wages and to those appointed on or after the cut off date, no fitment benefit is given.
Only these two recognized unions are now telling by fixing the revised minimum of Rs.18600/- the fitment benefit is less than 15%. FNTO has given a memorandum and devised the pay scales in such of way that the appointees on or after 01.01.2017 are also getting that quantum of benefit given to pre-2017 appointees. BSNL Employees and the BSNLEU should know that there is no hollowness in the minds of FNTO leaders. It is only in the minds of BSNLEU. 01.01.2007 pay scales are the classic examples for this. Almost all Gr D employees got stagnated in the revised scales in a couple of years from 01.01.2007.
FNTO and FNPTO have already seen several pay commissions on this issue and we have sufficient experience in this regard. This group of erstwhile NFPTE and NFTE has not attended any pay commission and submitted any pay demands in the CPCs. Hollowness exists only in their minds and not in FNTO.

20-09-2018:-Rejoinder to BSNLEU in reply to Wage settlement in BSNL with less than 15% fitment?

2nd Pay revision from 01.01.2007

1) Joint Committee was formed in November 2006 with the BSNLEU the only recognized union then and the BSNL Management.
2) The Jt. Committee finalized the recommendation only on 15.01.2010 after 3 years delay.
3) Wage agreement was signed on 07.05.2010 after a delay of 3½ years.
4) The committee recommended wage revision merging 68.8% IDA instead of 78.2% IDA for which Govt. orders exists at that time.
5) On 20.04.2010 during strike negotiation FNTO raised the issue of 78.2% IDA merger with the then HM (C) and the Minister Shri. A. Raja asked BSNLEU to discuss with CMD regarding 78.2% IDA merger and find solution within 15 days. If it could not be settled within 15 days he has asked them to come and meet him to settle the merger of 78.2% IDA. In fact Com. Namboodri refused to raise the issue before the HM(C) on the plea that it is issue not in the strike demand.
6) Can the BSNLEU say, whether they have discussed the matter with the CMD. If so when and with what results.
7) The fact is that they have neither discussed the matter with the CMD nor reported it to the then HM (C) Shri A. Raja for a solution.
8) Instead, on 16th day the 07.05.2010 signed the wage agreement unconditionally accepting merger of 68.8 % IDA for obvious political reasons.
9) Because of this BSNL Employees and pensioners lost the arrears from 01.01.2007 to 09.06.2013 i.e. for 6 ½ years. HRA increase for 78.2% IDA was also surrendered for 9 ¾ years out of 10 years dues.
10) During the wage revision talks in 2007, BSNLEU was the only recognized union (elected with the votes of FNTO). It is their responsibility to negotiate better wage settlement and they cannot blame others for their deliberate failures for political reasons.
11) BSNLEU has demanded a minimum wage of Rs.14, 000/- from 01.01.2007 but in the joint committee recommended the same for Rs.7760/-. As a member of the joint committee they are also responsible for this poor settlement. They cannot boast that they got more pay than bank employees. Bank employees settlement is for 5 years whereas for BSNL it is for 10 years. If they are not agreeable they should not have signed the recommendation for the minimum pay of Rs.7760/- and 68.8% IDA merger or they should have signed it under protest. They have done nothing. Thus BSNLEU has surrendered the rights of BSNL Employees. For their failures they cannot blame FNTO.

14-09-2018:- FLASH NEWS. It is learnt that Joint Committee of Wage Revision held today with no out come.

14-09-2018:- Wage settlement in BSNL with less than 15% fitment-FACTS. The BSNLEU is blaming others stating so called vested interests are criticising them to keep their mistakes blocked in Wage settlement in BSNL with less than 15% fitment.

The recognised unions are criticising the other unions who are pointing out their deliberate mistakes.
1. The proposal for new pay scales submitted by recognised unions on 8th August-2018 para one:- “Fitment benefit of 15% as recommended by third PRC and approved by cabinet and orders issued by DPE.BSNL Management has already recommended for 15% fitment benefit and sent it for the approval of DOT. Thus there is unanimity between management and staff side on this issue " based on this only they submitted proposed pay scales i.e. Minimum pay scale should be 19590/-

2. on 9th August’s meeting they reported that Management proposed 2.40 multiplication factor fitment (it will be 9.34 % fitment ) and we demanded 2.44 multiplication factor fitment (it will be 11.17% fitment out of 15 % fitment less then their own proposal) demanding 19000 minimum pay scale .what made they laid down to their own proposal is better known to them.

3. On 10th September-2018 meeting surprisingly they are blaming Management that management is asking to accept 0 to 5% fitment and all opposed strongly then management came down and handed over their proposal with 2.44% fitment .This was demanded by recognised unions in the last meeting.

4. It cannot be forgotten in 2nd wage revision the lapses on behalf of BSNLEU to discuss and argue strongly resulted in loss of three and half years of arrears to employees including loss of HRA.

Now the recognised unions starting criticising other unions and sirking from their responsibility and assurance given to working employees.

Thus the employees and pensioners are scared of being cheated by the Unions and Management.

Joint Committee on 3rd Wage Revision Meeting held on 10-09-2018

Management proposed the pay scales for Non-executives with 2.44% Multiplication factor Fitment will arises 11.17% out of 15% Fitment.
With 15% Fitment (Multiplication factor will arises 2.52%.) That’s what the DOT/DPE and BSNL Management recommended.
Example NE-1 Scale = 7760+119.5% IDA+15% (i.e. 2.52% Multiplication factor Fitment) 7760+9273+2555=19590/- So that NE-1 Minimum Pay Scale should be 19590/- only.
Management proposed 2.44% Multiplication factor will arise 11.17% Fitment.
Example NE-1 Scale = 7760+9273+1902=18935/- say 19000/-.(Less than 15% Fitment)
NUBSNLW (FNTO) suggests the recognized unions to stick on 15% Fitment. As the Next wage revision will be after 10 years only.

Management proposed Pay Scales.

Next Meeting will be held on 14-09-2018.

News on 3rd Wage Revision Negotiation meeting held on 10-09-2018.

The Wage Negotiations Committee Meeting held today, it is noticed that the Management suggested 2.44 % Multiplication factor fitment, so that the Minimum Scale is 19000/- with 32 years span.
Next meeting will be held on 14-09-2018.

07-09-2018:-The recognized unions are again demanding low quotation of Pay Scales to Non executive employees.

3rd Wage Revision Negotiation Meeting held on 27-08-2018. Management Side proposed that, the minimum of the new pay scales should be arrived at, by multiplying the minimum of the existing pay scales by 2.4. Accordingly, they proposed the minimum of the new NE 1 pay scale as RS.18,600/-. However, the Staff Side did not accept this. They demanded that the multiplication factor should be 2.44. Accordingly, the minimum of the new NE1 pay scale comes to Rs.18, 934/- and that it should be rounded off to Rs.19,000. They also demanded that the 2.44 multiplication factor should be applied to arrive at the minimum of all the new pay scales. The Management Side agreed to examine these proposals of the Staff Side.

As per the Discussion held on 27-08-2018, Management Proposed 2.4% multiplication i.e. Basic x 2.4% multiplication i.e. 7760 x 2.4=18934 compared with the total of Basic Pay + IDA, The fitment is 9.34%. And the Recognized Unions demanding 2.44% multiplication is getting 11.16% only i.e. less than the fitment benefit of 15% as recommended by third PRC and approved by Cabinet and orders issued by DPE. BSNL management has already recommended for 15% fitment benefit.

If it is 15% Fitment, Basic Pay 7760/- multiplication by IDA 119.5% i.e. 9273/- Total 7760+9273=17033 +15% fitment i.e. 17033x15% =2555 Total 17033+2555=19588 i.e. 19590/-

So Minimum of the New Pay Scale should be 19590/- or if it is rounded off to next 100/- rupees it should be Rs 20,000/-

31-08-2018:-Message from Director(HR).

31-08-2018:-India: 36,000 Port Workers to get 10.6% wage hike.
Some 36,000 port and dock workers at the 12 major ports owned by the Centre will get a 10.6 per cent wage hike for a five-year period beginning January 1, 2017.
The wage increase was finalised recently by the Bipartite Wage Negotiation Committee comprising representatives from the Indian Ports Association (IPA) and the five workers’ unions at major port trusts.
“Fair and reasonable”
“A wage increase of 10.6 per cent is a very fair and reasonable settlement in the present scenario when the port trusts are going through a tough time,” T. Narendra Rao, General Secretary, Water Transport Workers’ Federation of India, one of the five worker’s federations that were part of the negotiations, said.
The Ministry has formed a committee to draft the wage settlement, which will be signed in Mumbai in the first week of August, Rao said.
The wages of port and dock workers are revised once in five years as their wage revision was de-linked from other Central Government employees in 1969.
During the negotiations, the port management, though, sought to revise the wages once in ten years, in line with the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission for Central Government employees. But, this move was opposed by the worker’s unions.
“Create awareness”
At the lowest level, an employee will get a wage hike of Rs.3,000 while at the highest level (excluding officers), a worker will get as much as Rs.10,000, Rao said.
The workers will also be paid the arrears for 18 months from January 1, 2017. The wage revision comes at a time when the workers unions ended a 15-day campaign from June 28 “to create awareness among the port workers on certain basic issues pertaining to port and dock workers and industry and prepare them for a mass struggle against the ongoing anti-workers and anti-people policies of the government,” Rao said.
The unions, among other issues, have urged the Government to scrap the plan to convert “port trusts” into “authorities” by enacting the Major Port Authorities Bill, which they fear will lead to “privatisation” of the major ports.
The unions are also demanding a centrally- operated common pension fund for all major ports to ensure uninterrupted pension payments in the emerging scenario, Rao said.

31-08-2018:-Over 1 lakh employees and pensioners get 10.6% hike.
The 12 major ports run by the Centre will raise the wages of its more than 32,000 Group C&D category port and dock workers and some 105,000 Group C&D pensioners by 10.6 per cent beginning January 2017, according to a five-year agreement signed on Thursday.
The settlement will raise the overall wage and pension bill of the dozen ports by about Rs. 560 crore per annum, a Shipping Ministry statement said. The finalisation of the wage settlement was first reported by Business Line on 13 July-2018.
The settlement provides for 10.6 per cent fitment on basic pay plus DA. The lowest grade of workers will get a pay-scale of Rs. 20,900-43,600 and the highest grade worker, Rs. 36,500-88,700.
“As per the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the welfare of the people is the chief priority of the government, and I am glad that major ports are becoming drivers of socioeconomic change. Major ports have become pioneers in taking this initiative, being the first to sign the wage settlement for Group C&D employees,” said Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Transport and Shipping, who was present at the signing of the wage pact here.
The settlement was signed between six Port and Dock Workers’ Federations and the Port Management under Section 12(3) of Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, before the Regional Labour Commissioner who represented the Chief Labour Commissioner.
The wages of port and dock workers at major ports are revised every five years as their wage revision was de-linked from other Central government employees in 1969. The wage revision in many of the major public sector enterprises is done every 10 years.

28-08-2018:-News on 3rd PRC Negotiations meeting held on 27th August-2018.
The joint committee of wage negotiations for non executives met yesterday. The management side proposed a Minimum of RS 18600 /- for NE 1 Scale. The staff side demanded Rs 19000/- (it is understood that the management proposal is also Rs 19000/- for minimum pay scale of NE 1). Due to payment of pension contribution at the maximum of the pay scales span. Management is for restricting the maximum of the pay scales span.
Next meeting will be held on 10th September-2018

25-08-2018:- Additional Note for 3rd PRC case of Sr.TOA’s.Additional Note
1) Almost all employees in BSNL are drawing the pay @ maximum of their pay scale as on 01.01.2017. The employees in NE-1 to NE-6 are even drawing the maximum of 3 stagnation increments. Others in NE-7 to NE-12 are either drawing pay in the maximum of their pay scale or in the verge of maximum. As such the additional expense on account of revision of wages could only be the 15% fitment benefit. Accordingly the cost of our demand is worked out.
2) Upgradation of pay scale of Sr.TOA from 4000-6000 (CDA) to Rs.4500-7000 as per JCM (DC) of DOT decision and as per the agreement dated 30.09.2000. A copy of the record of discussion held in connection with the September 2000 strike is enclosed. Earlier consequent on the V CPC recommendations the FNTO has demanded revision of pay scales of Sr.TOA by introducing EDP scales and TTA at par with the Diploma holders working in other departments like Railways etc and also as per V CPC recommendation. Accordingly decision was taken in the JCM (DC) of DOT to revise the above pay scales.
After formation as BSNL the pay scale of TTA was revised from 4500-7000 to 5000-8000 from 01.10.2000. The BSNL was prepared to implement the decision of revision of pay of Sr.TOA from 4000-6000 to 4500-7000 (COA) from 01.10.2000 itself as was demanded by the FNTO and NFTE in the JCM (DC) and also as per the agreement reached at the time of strike in DOT before formation of BSNL.
Due to some misunderstanding in the service unions this decision of the DOT was not implemented for Sr.TOA. This has caused dissatisfaction among the Sr.TOAs. Subsequent agreement on NEPP also complicated the issue, by down grading the pay of OTBP from 7100-10100 to 6550-10500 leading to anomalies and also dissatisfaction among Sr.TOAs.
Now this union requests the BSNL to kindly resolve this issue by upgrading the pay scale of Sr.TOA from 4000-6000 (then CDA) to 4500-7000 as per the decision of the then JCM (DC) atleast from 01.01.2017 utilizing the opportunity of wage revision to render justice to the Sr.TOAs. This will cause no additional expenditure to BSNL and no need for revising the other promotional pay scales of Sr.TOA which will remain as it is. The total number of Sr.TOAs in Basic cadre as on 01.01.2017 is only 20398 and drawing maximum pay in their scale. Their pay on upgradation will be fixed under FR 23 read with FR22 I (a) (2) and no extra cost will be involved. We hope for the favourable decision.

25-08-2018:-History of Sr. TOA Pay scales in BSNL. History of Sr. TOA Pay scales in BSNL
NEPP agreement itself is a blunder committed by the then recognized union BSNLEU. We have suggested a proposal for NEPP scheme to Com. Namboodri. A copy of the same is enclosed.
But that union blindly signed the defective agreement in order to get votes in the union election. They have simply copied the EPP without knowing its implications. For EPP each scales starting from E1 to E6 are promotional scales. The basic scale of E1 is for JTO/JAO. There are no other cadres as basic cadres. But in the NEPP it is not like that.
BSNLEU is now shedding its crocodile tear by telling that the Management has downgraded the Sr. TOA pay scale of 7100-10100 to 6550 – 9325. Actually the basic scale of Sr. TOA is 4000-100-6000 i.e. the corresponding IDA scale is 5700-8100. OTBP (Sr. TOA) scale was 4500-125-7000 in CDA. Corresponding IDA scale for 4500-125-7000 is 7100-200-10100. The DOT on the demand of FNTO in the then JCM (DC) has agreed to revise the pay scale of Sr. TOAs from 4000-100-6000 to 4500-125-7000 from 01.10.2000 from the date of formation of BSNL.
The pay scale of TTAs was also upgraded and revised from 4500-125-7000 to 5000-150-8000. This was also as per the demand of FNTO consequent on the recommendations of V CPC. In a promotion committee meeting of BSNL it was agreed to implement TTA pay scales from 01.10.2000 itself. The Management was prepared to implement the revised pay scales of Sr. TOA also from 4000-100-6000 to 4500-125-7000 Corresponding IDA pay scales are 5700-8100 and 6550-9325 respectively. But the unions refused to accept this offer and did nothing to get it at par with TTAs. BSNLEU or NFTE also have not taken any steps to revise the basic grade scale of Sr. TOA till today. Sr. TOAs are still longing in the pay scale of 4000-6000 (5700-8100 IDA).
The OTBP Sr. TOAs were drawing 7100-200-10100 scale. The agreement made by the BSNLEU in the NEPP it is clearly stated that it is for the next higher IDA scale. The basic scale of Sr. TOA is 5700-8100 Next higher IDA scale is 6550-9325. As per the agreement in par 6.1, the promotion to the next higher IDA scale. According it is given as 6550-9325 for NEPP I upgradation downgrading 7100 scale. But as per para 6.4 an employee who got OTBP / BCR etc. the old scheme may opt to treat it as first upgradation in NEPP and the subsequent promotions will be as per NEPP. Accordingly many Sr. TOAs have opted to treat the promotion got under the erstwhile promotion policy of OTBP/BCR etc as first upgradation under NEPP. Some Sr. TOAs due to misguidance by some unions have opted for NEPP to 6550 scale forgoing the promotions already got under OTBP / BCR schemes in 7100-10100 scale. They are now suffering due to stagnation and loss of salary and pension benefits. It is a recurring loss for them.
To remove this anomaly upgradation of the pay scale of Sr. TOAs as per the decision of the then JCM (DC) is the only solution. It may be revised retrospectively from 01.10.2000 atleast on notional basis from 4000-6000 to 4500-7000 scale with the actual benefit from 01.01.2017.
Will the two recognized unions i.e. BSNLEU and NFTE BSNL do it atleast now while negotiating new scales from 01.01.2017? to undo the injustice done to Sr. TOAs.

24-02-2018:-Meeting with Hon'ble Minister Shri Manoj Sinha on 24-02-2018 at 12.30AM. Meeting between Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL - A historical meeting: A meeting is held at the Sanchar Bhawan today the 24.02.2018, between Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL (AUAB). Together with the Minister, Secretary, DoT, Special Secretary, DoT, Joint Secretary (Admn.), DoT, DDG (Esst), DoT, Shri Anand Kumar, OSD to the Hon’ble Minister, CMD BSNL and Director (HR) BSNL were present. From the All Unions and Associations of BSNL, Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, Com. Chandeswar Singh, GS, NFTE, Com. K. Sebastin, GS, SNEA, Com. Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com. K. Jayaprakash, GS, FNTO, Com. N.D. Ram, GS, SEWA BSNL, Com. Ravi Shil Verma, GS, AIGETOA, Com. Mallikarjuna, President, BSNL MS and Com. S.D. Sharma, GS, BSNL ATM, participated in the discussions. The representatives of the AUAB heartily thanked the Hon’ble Minister for taking out time to meet them. Detailed discussions took place on the memorandum submitted to the Hon’ble Minister, the details of which are as follows: -
1) 3rd Pay Revision. So far, the DoT has been maintaining that BSNL employees are not eligible for 3rd Pay Revision. In today’s meeting the Hon’ble Minister agreed that the issue of 3rd Pay Revision of BSNL employees would be processed and would be taken for the approval of the DPE and the Cabinet. This is a great achievement. We have broken the stalemate that prevailed in the Pay Revision issue. At the same time we have to be vigilant, till the final approval is given by the Cabinet.
2) Formation of Subsidiary Tower Company. The AUAB representatives expressed their apprehension that in the name of formation of the Tower Company, the 66,000 mobile towers of BSNL are being snatched away from BSNL. They also pointed out that the decision of the Cabinet that, the Subsidiary Tower Company would remain under the control of BSNL Management, has been violated, through the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of Subsidiary Tower Company. They further pointed out that even BSNL Management was not taken in to confidence in the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, which clearly shows that the Subsidiary Tower Company would not be under the control of BSNL Management. The reply given by the Hon’ble Minister in this regard is not satisfactory. The AUAB has to find ways and means to ensure the rolling back of the Subsidiary Tower Company.
During the discussions on the issue, GS AIBSNLEA raised the issue of additional increment on post based promotions under the provisions of executive promotion policy provisions which has been denounced by DoT vide letter dated 05.07.2017 and lakhs of rupees recoveries are taking place of BSNL executives and BSNL pensioners. He instantly submitted Hon’ble PB CAT judgment copy to Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) wherein the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 has been quashed. Hon’ble MOSC (I/C) immediately directed DoT administration to look into the matter. Now, we can expect that DoT may not go for appeal against the PBCAT order in this regard after this meeting.
3) Pension Revision. The representatives of AUAB strongly argued that pension revision should be done to the BSNL pensioners. It was pointed out that the BSNL pensioners and the Central Government pensioners are covered by the same rules. They argued that when pension revision is settled for the Central Government pensioners, the same should not be denied to the BSNL pensioners. The Hon’ble Minister assured that needful action would be taken to settle this issue.
(4) Calculation of Pension Contribution. It was strongly argued that pension contribution in respect of BSNL employees cannot be calculated on the basis of maximum of the pay scale, when the same is calculated on the basis of actual basic pay, in the case of Central Government employees. It was pointed out that as per the DoP&T order issued in 2006, pension contribution of the Central Government employees is being deducted on the basis of actual pay only. The Hon’ble Minister directed the Secretary, DoT, that this issue should be settled as per Government orders.
(5) Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL. The AUAB representatives pointed out that it will be extremely difficult for BSNL to compete with the private operators, without providing 4G service. They strongly argued that the proposal of the BSNL Management, for the allotment of 4G spectrum by the Government, should be accepted. The Hon’ble Minister replied in the positive and assured that needful action would be taken.
(6) Reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58. The AUAB representatives strongly argued that the retirement age of the BSNL employees should not be reduced from 60 to 58, as a measure for the revival of BSNL. The Hon’ble Minister told that the government is not having any proposal to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58.
(7) Left out issues of the 2nd PRC. The AUAB representatives pointed out that this issue is lingering on very long time and needs to be settled. The Hon’ble Minister stated that this issue would be looked into by the Secretary, DoT.
At the end of the meeting, the Hon’ble Minister stated that the representatives of AUAB could meet him again, as well as the Secretary, DoT, in continuation of today’s meeting. The representatives of AUAB heartily thanked the Minister for his positive response to most of the issues.
After the meeting with the Hon’ble Minister, a meeting of the AUAB was held in the FNTO’s office. All the General Secretaries expressed their satisfaction with regards to the progress in the issues. They also expressed the view that all these have happened only because of the united struggles and massive mobilization by the entire Non-Executives and Executives, for which they deserve appreciation.

19-01-2018:-Telecom a services facilitator, not just revenue generator: Manoj Sinha, MOC
By Gulveen AulakhET Bureau|Jan 12, 2018, 06.47 AM IST
New Delhi: The telecom ministry should be seen as a facilitator of digital and other services and not as a mere revenue generator for the government, minister Manoj Sinha said, signalling a possible shift in the mindset of the ministry and bringing it closer to the viewpoint of the industry, which has long complained about excessive levies and steep base prices for auctions.
"Digital IndiaBSE -3.09 % has to be implemented, which will offer many benefits to other sectors as well. Telecom ministry should be seen as a facilitator, rather than a revenue generator. It's a valid point," the minister told ET in an interview.
Between 2010 and 2016, the government raised Rs 3,48,467 crore through six airwave auctions, and telcos hold the steep outgo on account of these as one of the major reasons for their Rs 7.7 lakh crore debt burden. In addition, they claim that almost 30 paise of every rupee earned by them is paid as levy and taxes to the government.
"We're coming out with the new telecom policy in March. Whatever fundamental changes we have to make, we'll make in it," Sinha said, when asked if the government will look at reducing or scrapping licence fee and spectrum usage charge, the two big components of the telecom sector's revenue contribution to the exchequer.
'TC Decisions Big Relief for Industry'
The minister added that the health of the telecom sector was looking up. "The numbers are saying that stability is returning to the sector," Sinha said. "The worst phase is over and the industry is on the path to consolidation."
To buttress his point, Sinha cited the growing quarterly revenue contribution of telecom companies to the government. "There is an upward trend in revenue in the past quarters — to Rs 54,151crore in Q1 of 2017-18 and further to Rs 57,848 crore in Q2," he said.
Sinha reiterated the government's commitment to a free and unbiased Internet and said the ministry expects to issue its policy on net neutrality within a month. This was broadly in agreement with the recommendations of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), he said. Carriers would not be allowed to discriminate among users on the basis of Internet speed. "Democracy is in our blood," the minister said.
The Telecom Commission, the highest decision-making body in the telecom ministry, decided on Tuesday to scrap the 50% cap on intra-band spectrum holdings of telcos and instead impose a separate 50% cap on combined spectrum holdings in the 700 MHz, 800 MHz and 900 MHz bands (sub-1GHz bands). It also increased the overall airwaves holding limit to 35% from 25%, giving a boost to M&As and spectrum sales, as carriers try to sell assets, including airwaves, to repay debt.
The commission also extended the payments tenure for auctioned airwaves to 16 years from 12 years and lowered the interest rate on penalties on outstanding dues of telcos to 12% from 14%.
"This will be a big relief (for the industry)," Sinha said.
Commenting on last month's 2G judgement, the minister said acquittals didn't mean there was no wrongdoing. "The case is that a murder happened and you did not give your statement, and I went scot-free," he said. "That doesn't mean the murder didn't happen."
"Investigating agencies should decide whether to challenge the decision," he said. "Broadly, there were irregularities that took place, decisions were influenced by power corridors...which the SC said, and cancelled 122 licences."

Cabinet gives nod to wage policy framework for CPSE workers

PTI| Updated: Nov 22, 2017, 02.19 PM IST 0Comments

The Cabinet today approved a policy framework for central public sector enterprises (CPSEs) to negotiate the next round of wage revision with their workers, said official sources.

The decision on the wage policy for the eighth round of negotiations for the workers was taken at the Union Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi here.

As per the decision, the sources said, management of the CPSEs would be "free" to negotiate wage revision for workmen where the periodicity of wage settlement of 5 years or 10 years "expired generally" on December 31, 2016.

However, the government would not provide any budgetary support for any such wage increase, and the respective CPSEs would have to bear the entire financial implications from their own resources, they added.

Further, the management of CPSEs would have to ensure the negotiated scales of pay do not exceed the existing scales of executives and non-unionised supervisors of the respective companies.

According to the sources, CPSEs would also have to make sure any increase in wages does not result in administered prices of their goods and services. (Source-Economic Times)

20-10-2017:- BSNL partners Micromax to launch 4G feature phone for Rs 2,200. Telecom minister Manoj Sinha said the partnership would increase BSNL's subscribers and strengthen the financial position.

Taking on Reliance Jio, government-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL) has launched a feature phone with fourth-generation technology (4G) in partnership with handset maker Micromax for Rs 2,200.

BSNL will offer unlimited internet access, calling and SMS, along with free roaming, for a monthly recharge of Rs 97. Micromax says the effective cost of ownership will be Rs 3,364 after one year, as compared to Rs 3,336 for Reliance Jio's 4G feature phone. After two years, the cost of ownership for BSNL will be Rs 4,528 as compared to Rs 5,172 of Jio's and after three years, goes the claim, BSNL's ownership cost will be Rs 5,692 as against Rs 6008 in the Jio phone if kept by the customer.

Jio had in July announced a 4G feature phone for Rs 1,500, returnable at the end of three years for a full refund. The bundled Jio connection has a monthly plan of Rs 153.

With their “Bharat-1” device, Micromax and BSNL say they aim at providing an affordable 4G phone option to the 500-plus million without an internet unconnection. It is also a dual SIM one and can be used with other operators, as the device is not locked with BSNL. The Jio phone is locked for three years.

Speaking on the occasion, telecom minister Manoj Sinha said the partnership with Micromax would increase BSNL's subscribers and strengthen the financial position. BSNL, which operates across the country except Delhi and Mumbai, has around 98 million mobile subscribers.

It plans to offer 4G services on the 2,100 MHz band, for which the company has pan-India spectrum.

Jio was the first telecom operator to tap feature phone customers with its 4G-enabled device. After rattling the incumbent operators with free and cheap offerings, it led the shift towards this segment of customers, with the market in big cities almost saturated.

Bharti Airtel, the entity with the largest market share, has announced a bundling partnership with another local handset maker, Karbonn, for a smartphone offer with an "effective price" of Rs 1,399. Vodafone and Idea Cellular are also in talks with handset makers for bundling partnerships. (Suorce-Business Standard, 18-10-2017)

19-09-2017:-BSNL Likely to Partner With Lava, Micromax to Launch an Affordable Feature Phone Around Rs. 2,000. Telecom Talk September 18, 2017

State-run telecom operator, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL) is looking to partner with domestic mobile brands such as Micromax and Lava to launch a co-branded feature phone around Rs. 2,000. This rumoured feature phone will come with attractive bundled tariff plans, and the launch might happen in October.

“Our strategy is away from procurement. We are trying to come up with our own bundled phone equipment and in about a month time, you will see co-branded feature phones with various manufacturers will come,” BSNL chairman Anupam Shrivastava told to Economic Times.

Speaking about the collaboration with domestic phone makers, Shrivastava said: “We are tying up with device makers such as Lava and Micromax to come up with own model of co-branded bundled feature phones with very aggressive voice packages.”

It is also said that the price of this feature phone is yet to be finalised, but it would be close to Rs. 2,000 as per the top executive. The feature phone will also offer free voice calls.

BSNL is having a decent time in the Indian telecom market. While other top private operators such as Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, and Idea Cellular are struggling to tackle the newcomer Reliance Jio, BSNL is going neck-to-neck with Reliance Jio with its luring and attractive tariff plans.

Having said that, this deal should be equally important to the handset makers- Micromax and Lava because their market share has gone down drastically in recent times, thanks to the emergence of Chinese brands in the country.

BSNL is considering this move to counter the Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio which recently launched the affordable 4G VoLTE feature phone, the JioPhone. However, BSNL’s feature phone will not be a 4G supported one because the telecom operator is yet to offer 4G services in the Indian market. Leading telecom operator, Bharti Airtel is also considering the same move of partnering with mobile brands and launch a co-branded affordable 4G VoLTE smartphone with attractive and luring tariff plans.

Airtel is rumoured to launch the same smartphone by this Diwali, whereas BSNL is claimed to announce its co-branded feature phone in October.

As all of you are aware, the Union Cabinet has taken decision yesterday, to form a Subsidiary Tower Company. This decision, if implemented, will ruin BSNL. Its 70,000 mobile towers would be snatched away. Without its mobile towers, BSNL will become more or less a skeleton. It is the duty of each and every Non-Executive and Executive, to stop the formation of the Subsidiary Tower Company. As a first step against formation of Subsidiary Tower Company, powerful lunch hour demonstrations would be conducted throughout the country on 15.09.2017. All unions and associations are participating in this programme. Circle and District secretaries of NUBSNLW (FNTO) are requested to coordinate with all the other unions and associations and to organize the programme very effectively.

BSNL Mobile Towers to Be Hived Off Into Separate Company

PTI @PTI_News September 13, 2017, 7:53 am September 12, 2017, 7:31 pm

The Cabinet on Tuesday approved hiving off about 66,500 mobile towers of state-run BSNL into a separate company with a view to monetising them by either listing the new entity or leasing the masts to private firms.

BSNL owns 15 percent of the 4, 42, 000 mobile towers in the country.

“Private telecom service operator have created a separate tower subsidiary and have been offering their services. Today Cabinet has granted approval to Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited also to harness full potential of its mobile towers by creating a separate completely owned subsidiary,” Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha told reporters after the Cabinet meet.

The government allows telecom operators and mobile tower companies to mutually share towers for lowering capital and operational expenses.

BSNL has 15 percent towers out of all mobile towers in the country. We have 66,457 mobile towers. Tenancy ratio was 1.14 was in the past. Average tenancy ratio of other service provider is 1.9. This (separate company) will lead to increase in our tenancy ratio as well. Other service provider will be able to use our tower.

Manoj Sinha, Telecom Minister

The tenancy ratio is derived by dividing number of base stations or antenna installed at mobile towers with total number of towers.

Sinha said the mobile tower company will be completely owned by BSNL and the process of creating the new subsidiary will be completed in two years.

“1,614 people will go on deputation from BSNL and the Department of Telecom. In coming days, when business will increase, new employment opportunities will be created. This work will be completed in two years,” he said.

A tower company owns the passive infrastructure and leases it to telecom service providers enabling them to minimise duplication of investments and economise on costs of operation and maintenance, leading to improvement in profitability.

The minister said that tenancy ratio on BSNL towers has improved from 1.14 to 1.32 since the time the proposal to create a separate mobile tower company was floated. “When we will execute it, then we will also reach the same level as of other service providers,” Sinha said.

Indus Towers, a joint venture between Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular, is the biggest telecom tower company in the world with 1,22,920 mobile towers with over 2,97,867 tenancies. Bharti Infratel claims the second spot in mobile tower segment with 90,646 mobile towers.

BSNL announced three new plans in the price range of Rs. 333 to Rs. 395, offering daily internet data usage limit of up to 3 GB and unlimited calling for 90 days.

In the ongoing battle on tariff wars state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) on Friday launched three new schemes offering up to 3 GB of internet data per day along with free voice calls for a period of 90 days. The new tariff offer by the BSNL is seen as a move to counter attractive internet and voice calling plans being offered by other telecom players like Vodafone, Airtel and Reliance Jio. Tariffs in the telecom sector are being revised as a measure to retain the customer base, say analysts.

BSNL announced three new plans in the price range of Rs. 333 to Rs. 395, offering daily internet data usage limit of up to 3 GB and unlimited calling for 90 days.

BSNL's new plan named as “Triple Ace” is priced at Rs. 333 and will offer unlimited data with 3G speed up to 3GB internet data per day and will be valid for 90 days, said a statement issued by the BSNL.

The company also launched “Dil Khol Ke Bol” plan for Rs. 349 in which its customers will get unlimited local and STD calls and 2GB data with 3G speed every day after which the speed will get reduced to 80 KBPS per second.

In the third plan known as “Nehle pe Dehla”, BSNL is offering 3,000 minutes of calls on BSNL network and 1,800 minutes of calling on other network along with 2GB daily data at 3G speed for Rs. 395 for 71 days.

01-09-2016:- SUCCESS THE GENERAL STRIKE ON 2ND SEPTEMBER-2016.

Press Communique 31st August 2016

Central Trade Unions Reiterate countrywide General Strike on 2nd Sept, 2016 Group of Ministers (GOM) Announcement an eyewash

The Central Trade Unions reiterate the call for countrywide general strike on 2nd September 2016 against the anti-worker and anti-people policies of the Govt. in view of utterly unresponsive and undemocratic attitude of the Govt. The CTUs view the announcements made by Committee of Ministers as an eyewash and decide to go ahead with the Strike. Meagre raise in minimum wage to Rs.9100/- per month in central sphere is not binding on the States.

The CTUOs expressed dismay over utterly negative attitude of the Govt. towards basic demands of the workers on minimum wages as per consensus formulation of the Indian Labour Conference, on universal social security including pension for all workers including those in unorganised sector, against mass scale contractorisation of permanent and perennial work, against onslaught on basic rights of the workers through so called labour-law-reforms through various state governments and also by the centre in the background of large scale violation of labour laws being promoted by both the central govt and also many state govts, desperate move for privatisation/disinvestment of strategic and sensitive public sector units, and promoting limitless FDI in sensitive sectors like Defence, Railways, Banks, Insurance, Retail and Pharmaceuticals etc. which is also against the interest of the national economy.

The CTUOs made it clear that the desperate bid of the Govt for changing the labour laws both through central and many state govts is basically designed to throw even the overwhelming majority of the organised sector workers out of the coverage and purview of all basic labour laws which would render all other rights and benefits of the working people virtually meaningless.

The CTUOs also noted with dismay that the Govt while making public statement on being positive on the demands of the workers, has actually been actively pushing through executive measures, one after another, just in the opposite direction, against the interest of the working people in the garb of ensuring so called “ease of doing business.” All these proactive initiatives militate against the basic interests and rights of the working people. Even the non-striking Central Trade Union also officially recorded its opposition.

The CTUOs expressed satisfaction over the increasing response by the workers throughout the country to the call for united action. The strike is going to be complete in industrial sectors such as transport, financial, power, coal, textile, automobile, port and dock, steel, oil, defence production, scheme, education etc. sectors and Central and State Govts. employees. In some states it is going to be bandh like situation.

It is unfortunate that during the past one year, the Group of Ministers appointed for discussion with the CTUOs on 12 point charter has not convened even a single meeting but has been only talking to BMS which has not joined the strike call. The CTUOs denounce such undemocratic bias of the Govt.

The CTUOs condemn the move of the central govt to divide the workers in the face of ongoing strike campaign and create confusion through making misleading statements on its so called positive attitude on workers’ demands both directly and through their various agencies and allies.

While expressing confidence that such dubious action to divide the workers will not succeed, the CTUOs appeal to the working people of the country irrespective of affiliations to further widen their unity and unitedly combat the anti-worker, anti-people policies of the Govt through making the call for countrywide general strike on 2nd September 2016 a total success.

08-07-2016:-Cong accuses BJP of covering up Rs. 45,000-crore telecom scam.

DoT says no scam; set to send recovery notices to telecom companies

New Delhi, July 7: The Congress on Thursday lobbed the „scam‟ bomb on the BJP-led Central government, accusing it of burying a Rs. 45,000-crore telecom fraud exposed by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) earlier this year. At the centre of the Congress charge is a decision by former Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad to conduct a review of the audited books of six telecom operators after the CAG report was made public in March. Randeep Singh Surjewala, In-charge, Communications, All India Congress Committee, said the review of the operators‟ accounts was an attempt by the Centre to dilute the extent of the loss put out by the CAG and to delay the process of recovery. He alleged that the Centre was bailing out the six telecom firms mentioned in the CAG report: Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, Reliance Communications, Idea Cellular, Tata Teleservices and Aircel India. The CAG had initiated an audit of these six telcos for the period between 2006-07 and 2009-10 on the instructions of the Congress-led UPA government in 2011. During this period, telecom operators did not have to pay any up-front price for spectrum but had to pay an annual licence fee and spectrum usage in the form of revenue share. Dispute over calculation However, there was a disagreement between the telecom operators and the Department of Telecom on the elements to be included for the purpose of calculating the annual revenue. While the operators argued that only revenue earned from offering telecom services should be taken into account, the DoT insisted that all income earned by the telcos, including those from sale of handsets or fixed deposits, should be included. Even as the telecom operators challenged the DoT stand in various courts, the CAG looked at whether operators were paying revenue share as prescribed by the DoT or „under-reporting‟ income in order to pay a lower licence fee. The Supreme Court, on April 17, 2014, permitted the CAG to audit the accounts. The CAG then submitted its report and said the six companies had under-reported their revenue, technically known as Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR), by Rs. 46,045.75 crore, leading to a loss of Rs.12,488.93 crore to the Exchequer. “Instead of immediately acting on these revelations reflecting a serious loss to the public exchequer, the Modi government has opted for an alternative revaluation of these figures by the Telecom Ministry through Chartered Accountants empanelled with them,” said Surjewala. “The only conclusion that can be drawn is that the Modi government wants to reduce the amount it has to recover if not spare the companies altogether. The intention is clearly mala fide. ” DoT response Responding to the allegations, a DoT statement said: “Revenue assurance is the top priority of DoT. The government is determined to recover every rupee of underpaid amount with interest and penalty from every defaulting company in the minimum possible time.” The Cellular Operators Association of India, the industry body representing large operators, including Airtel and Vodafone, said that the issue was being politicised when the matter is being dealt with legally. According to the CAG‟s report, the financial impact due to understatement of the adjusted gross revenue stood at: Rs. 3,728.54 crore for Reliance Communications; Rs. 3,215.39 crore for Tata Teleservices; Rs.2,651.89 crore for Airtel; Rs. 1,665.39 crore for Vodafone; Rs. 964.89 crore for Idea and Rs. 262.83 crore for Aircel.

05-07-2016:78.2% I.D.A. MERGER APPROVED

Official Press release from Cabinet secretariat after today’s cabinet meeting

Cabinet approves Revision of pension of BSNL Pensioners Removing Anomalies The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the revision of pension of BSNL pensioners and family pensioners, who retired prior to 10.06.2013 by allowing the benefit of merger of 50% DA/DR with Basic Pay/ Pension, effectively amounting to 78.2% DA/DR for the purpose of fitment, and (ii) Modifying the liability of BSNL towards the payment of pensionary benefits to the retired employees.

The pension of BSNL pensioners/family pensioners, who retired prior to 10.06.2013 has been revised w.e.f. 01.01.2007 notionally with actual benefit w.e.f. 10.06.2013, by allowing the benefit of merger of 50% DA/DR with Basic Pay/ Pension, effectively amounting to 78.2% DA/DR for the purpose of fitment at par with the serving employees of BSNL. However, increase in the amount of DCRG, leave encashment and commutation of pension in respect of these pensioners shall not be increased on this account.

The pension liability in respect of employees of Department of Telecommunications (DOT) / Department of Telecom Services (DTS) / Department of Telecom Operations (DTO) who retired prior to 01.10.2000 is solely borne by Government of India and the BSNL will have no liability in respect of these employees. In respect of employees who are absorbed in BSNL, the liability on account of pensionary benefits shall be fully borne by Government while BSNL will continue to discharge pension liability by way of pension contribution in accordance with FR-116 for the period they so work/worked.

The revision entails an estimated recurring annual expenditure of approximately Rs 129.63 crore for pensioners and Rs 24.93 crore for family pensioners and arrears from 2013-14 would be Rs 239.92 crore approximately for pensioners and Rs 44.62 Crore approximately for family pensioners. Approximately118500 pensioners all over India will be benefitted by this revision.

This revision will fulfill the long pending demand of revision of pension of BSNL absorbed employees who retired prior to 10.06.2013 and will bring the pensioners at par with the serving employees of BSNL by removing the anomalies. It will help in reducing the financial burden of BSNL and removing prospects of industrial unrest in BSNL while fulfilling the commitment of Government.

Background:

The decision of the Cabinet has come in the wake of an anomalous situation created in the difference of pension formula among the BSNL retirees who retired before and after 10.06.2013. Further, the decision regarding pensionary liability is on persistent demand from various quarters and a series of deliberations at different levels to fulfill the assurance given by the Government before corporatization i.e. before formation of BSNL.

1. Injustice to TTA cadre in NEPP Promotions Due to the wrong interpretations of revision of pay scales as up gradation. NEPP was given to all other non executives from 2004 where the TTAs were only from 2008.

2. Loss of pay to the officials (Sr. TOA) recruited post 2007. The post 2007 BSNL recuritees were drawing higher pay in the old pay scales before the implementation of revised pay scales in 2007. To make good the loss of pay the Management has sanctioned 5 increments to JTOs and recently one increment was sanctioned to TTAs. Whereas the claim of similarly placed Sr.TOA/TM/RM cadres were ignored. Request to sanction 5 increments to similarly placed Sr.TOAs, TM, RM and TTAs also.

3. The GPF Advances/Withdrawals. Remedial actions. The GPF advances/ withdrawals are almost help up for the last three months in BSNL and workers are faced with lot of difficulties to manage their personal affairs particularly marriages of wards/ education etc. It is told that arrangements for payments are under progress and shortly the money will be made available for disbursement.

4. Payment of 78.2% IDA merger benefits to BSNL Pensioners.

FNTO is asked to submit a detailed note on 1 & 2 points and the case will be reexamined. Other points will be taken up again with DOT.

11-05-2015: CAG points out loss of Rs.31,000 crore loss due to non-imposition of fines and undue gains to private operators. The Comptroller and Auditor General of India has pointed out a loss of Rs.31,000 crore to the exchequer, due to non-imposition of fines and undue gains to private telecom companies. The CAG has pointed out that Bharati Airtel made an undue gain of Rs.499 crore, due to the hasty decision of the DoT to merge Chennai telecom circle with Tamil Nadu in 2005. Further, Reliance Jio was benefitted to the tune of Rs.3367.29, since the DoT allowed it to provide voice service under the new licensing regime. The CAG has also pulled up the DoTs vigilance arm for failing to impose a penalty of Rs.4,300 crores on telecom companies for violation of mobile tower radiation rules. The CAG has also stated that Reliance Communications and Tata Tele services were benefitted to the tune of Rs.822.06 crores, after the DoT granted telecom licenses for dual technology in October 2007. It is also accused by the CAG that the decision of the DoT to allow intra - circle roaming, which involves sharing of spectrum by telecom operators, also caused huge financial loss.
