Further course of Trade Union action will be intimated in due course.

Comrades, last few years, Association is struggling to resolve the long pending HR issues trough deliberations. Considering the stiff competition in the telecom field, as a responsible Association, we have resorted to great restraint, strictly following the path of negotiations, fully focusing on the growth and financial viability of the company. The Management appears to have exploited our concern for the prospects of the Company, in turn, closing its eyes on the genuine issues pending for a very long time. The lethargic attitude of the BSNL Management in looking at the serious issues, not to speak of resolving them, has left the Association with no other alternative but to serve notice for Trade Union actions demanding the immediate resolution of the issues. As per our Patna CWC decisions, we tried our level best to have a united struggle in the banner of United Forum but could not succeed. The proposed move to demote the basic cadres JTO/JAO to E1 scale and other major pending issues forced the Association to serve the notice.



1)Dear Comrade, SDE General o/o GMT Amravati has received New year Diaries 2014,printed and published by SNEA MH Circle. Procedure for distribution of diaries will be started soon. We  are sorry for the little delay in distribution of new year diaries...

2)Revised Welfare cheque of Rs 1 lakh , given by SNEA(I) CHQ as a major of welfare scheme for SNEA members  is handed to the nominee of late Shri N P Panchariya AGM CFA-III ...We are thankful to GS/CS SNEA MH Circle/All India Treasurer/AGS/Jt Sec North SNEA(I)/Circle Treasurer for settlement of welfare claim of late shri N P Panchariya.   


Happy Republic Day!
On D Eve Of 65th REPUBLIC DAY,
Lets Salute & Remember D Soldiers
Who Sacrificed Their Lives
To Protect Our Nation..

Innocent peoples are being cheated in Vidarbha area on the name of leasing their land for erection of 3G Towers in the name of company whose name is shown in resemblance with BSNL by offering very high monthly rents of about Rs.40,000.00 per month. In new idea of cheating, such fraudulent are demanding initial deposit amount of Rs. 17,000.00 in their bank accounts as processing or registration charges or any other charges. By offer of such high amount deposit innocent people get easily trapped in their net. Some of subscribers are coming in mobile office to enquire about this but some of them are depositing the money directly without verification. The cheaters are taking benefit of BSNL brand name & faith of peoples on BSNL and may runaway after receiving the initial amount from the victims. Due to this, not only the victims lose their hard earned money but BSNLs image is also being tarnished and other staff and officers may have to face anguish of such victims. All the comrades are requested to be alert from such cases & cheaters and bring awareness among other BSNL staff, officers & esteemed BSNL customers.

  BSNL corporate office further elaborated the method for pay fixation on first up gradation under provisions of Employees Promotion Policy , consequent to pay revision w.e.from 01-01-2007.   >>>Letter>.>


1)Merger of staff working under Mobile wing with concerned SSA  is being issued as was demanded since long by SNEA and now there will be only one unit i.e SSA and one single group will be formed for all purpose of transfer & posting within SSA(Urban/Rural), Circle office  will maintain only one waitlist for each SSA. Henceforth request transfer will be made only for SSA and not for TD or mobile separately. This will remove disparity among executives for local transfer

2)BSNL warning over missed calls & SIM cloning:  Next time if you get a missed call starting with +92; #90 or #09, don't show the courtesy of calling back. BSNL has issued alerts to subscribers — particularly about the series mentioned above — saying that calling the number back after a missed call may make a user susceptible to SIM Card cloning.

Private Operators Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, Idea Cellular, Uninor and Videocon who are unhappy with the TRAI’s recommendations on spectrum, warned that high spectrum costs would lead to a 25-30% hike in call rates.

While Government said it is difficult to predict likely changes in call rates of mobile telephones in the wake of cancellation of 122 licenses as per Supreme Court verdict. This is because, as per the current Tariff framework, call rates of mobile services are under forbearance except for National Roaming where ceiling tariff has been specified. Mobile operators have the flexibility to offer different tariffs depending on the market conditions and the other commercial considerations  …. Courtesy…..Telecom Talk


 BSNL revenue decreased by 2.04% in the year 2011-12:   When all other operators recorded 10% to 15% increase in their revenue (from operations) during 2011-12 comparing to last year 2010-11, BSNL recorded 2.04% decrease in the revenue (from operations) as per the information available to us.(2010-11 Revenue-Rs 25541.89 Cr and 2011-12 Revenue-Rs 25019.85 Cr). MH Circle stands second (-9.14%) in the list of decline of revenue where as Punjab circle recorded -11.76 % loss of revenue.


BSNL Amravati-Cable maintenance deadlock continues..... Cable contractors mainly in Amravati city area have not started their cable maintenance work eventhough the list of faulty lines due to cable fault is increasing.

Congratulations to one and all….

SNEA(I) Amravati  congratulates  everyone who made yesterday  one day strike in Amravati District  a spectacular success.

Let us remain in a state of complete preparedness till our legitimate demands gets settled. If BSNL mamangement ventures to betray the assurances given to JAC yesterday in view of one day Strike on 15th

Dec ,yet again, then further sturdy struggle seems to be inevitable ... So be ready for the struggle...

Struggle to save safeguard our feature....

SNEA Zindabad....JAC Zindabad...Our unity zindabad...


JAC appeals tp Participate enmasse in the strike on 15-12-2011: The entire Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL are going on a historic strike on this day for protecting BSNL. It is against the inefficient and indifferent management, which does not want to settle the genuine demands of the employees. Let us participate enmasse in this strike and stop BSNL from being killed. 



NEWS from CHQ: Struggle is the only way to protect our jobs and beloved Company. That is what our history of consistent struggle under the banner of JAC clearly brings out.

Let us quickly recapitulate how continuous struggle has protected our beloved Company from being sold and in the process securing our jobs so far.


·    Persistent efforts to sell the equity of the Company have been defeated.

·    Precious resource of the Company “Copper”

·    How we could succeed to procure 22 m GSM equipment in 2007

·    How we forced the Union Cabinet to take a very positive decision on revision of our IDA pension

·    How are we nearing success in forcing the government to refund obsolete BWA spectrum charges

·    How we have succeeded in settling the issue of payment of pension contribution

·    How we have forced the government to pay us Rs 6000 crores USO fund

·    How issue of ITS absorption has got a real head start because of our sustained pressure and to take this issue to its logical conclusion continuance of sustained effort is absolutely necessary.

·      How tenders for procurement of 14.37 m GSM, Cables, optical fibres cables, telephone instruments, MLLN and BB modems etc. etc have reached conclusive stages after our protracted struggle.

·      How are we nearing success in forcing the government to take a definite stand and action under provisions of 3G licensing against Bharti, Vodafone and Idea for their violation of 3G policy .


Comrades, politicians, bureaucrats, vested interests and a thoroughly unprofessional, inefficient and corrupt BSNL management would have eaten up our jobs and mortgaged the Company to vested interests had we not remained alert and consistently struggled from the platform of JAC.


Let us not be carried away by deduction of one, two or three day’s wages for going on strike since getting bogged down in that totally irrelevant and counterproductive debate would mean ending up in losing our jobs altogether. Let us also keep at the back of our minds that we have lost already our bonus and partially medical reimbursements and LTC. Any kind of let up on our part to struggle will end up in our losing the jobs, not one/two/three day wages.    


 *Meeting of JAC CHQ held with BSNL management w/o any fruitful result. strike decision stands....  prepare for struggle of 15th December, 2011. JAC of unions and association of Amravati SSA also met yesterday and appeals all members to take active part in the proposed strike of 15th Dec 2011...

 Highly Successful Medical Check Up Camp by SNEA(I) Amravati: The nature of work is changing at whirlwind speed. Perhaps now more than ever before, job stress poses a threat to the health of officers and employees of BSNL. Varying job conditions, uncertain job expectations, lack of resources, poor social environment, lack of interpersonal relations is leading into stress. This perhaps is causing several types of chronic health problems among employees. Recent incidence of massive heart attacks and sudden death was mainly due to the acute stress. Move often it is observed that officials are reluctant to get their medical check up done from the doctors as it includes expenses of nearly Rs 1000/- to Rs 2000/- and basically due to lack of self consciousness towards own health. In view of above SNEA(I) Amravati conducted Medical Check Up Camp at Conference Hall , Doorsanchar Bhavan Amravati on 8th Oct 2011 .This Medical Camp was conducted for all employees of BSNL Amravati and remains highly successful as more than 200 employees participated in the Camp even though it was nonworking day. Health Check up was done by specialist team of doctors from Care Hospital Nagpur and Health care tips were given through power point presentation. Queries raised after presentation were satisfactorily answered by the doctors.

Medical Camp  sponsored and organised by SNEA Amravati was successful due to combined efforts of dedicated team of SNEA Amravati which include Com. S.R. Kalmegh ACS(E)  MH Circle,Com. S.P.Dhok DS Amravati, Com.A.V Changole President, Com.P.H. Kandalkar Vice President,Com. V.R. Jadhao ADS, Com.S.H. Gandhi Div Treasurer, Com.S.P. Mahatme Org Secretary, Com.H.N. Bagade, Com.V.J.Pande, Com.Manish Mahure, Com.Nilesh Jichkar, Com.D.G. Poke,Com.D.B. Gawande, Com.D.H. Bhad, Com.N D Wakode, Com.Vitalkar, Com.S.P.VirkhareCom.D.R. Dikey,Com.Y.H. Nagarnaik, Com.A.N.

Though there was confusion in minds of some of executives/non executives  who were earlier interested in VRS scheme but after detail deliberations and necessory inputs by all the leaders doubts were cleared. Thay have came to know the real intentions of giving VRS...... Among participants, Com S P Dhok ,Com S R Kalmegh, Com A V Changole, Com S H Gandhi ,Com V R Jadhav,Com H N Bagade , Com P H kandalkar ,Com V J Pande, Com S M kale, Com D B Gawande Com R N Chavan, Com A R Ghatole, Com S P Mahatme,Com V D Mishra,Com Y H Nagarnaik, Com A N Jagnade ,Com S M Holey, Com D K Gulhane,Com L M  Vikhar , com Vitalkar, Com D G Poke, Com D H Bhad, com Girnale Com U W Kawalkar, Com D R Dike etc from SNEA Amravati and Com D B Dange, Com M P Fursule, Com S B Dandage, Com A D Petkar, Com P M Dhobe, Com Dadimani, Com Chaudhari ,com Shrinivas , Com A S Raut, Com S A Tatte,Com Latif Khan, Com R D Ramteke, Com S K Deshbratar, Com Bagade and many more participated for the success of the one day fast......                       



Why should VRS be opposed?

 It is not at all a panacea to turnaround BSNL.  

 Trade unions have to stage a spirited and protracted fight to protect their workforce, not become instruments of facilitating narrow consideration of allowing people go to their homes prematurely with a little money – no, not even in the wildest dreams.

 CAGs report on Air India’s present disaster is an eye opener for all. 

 No Organization has ever got revived by adopting redundant and counterproductive measures like freezing of wages, incentives, promotions, voluntary or forcible retrenchments, etc. etc. Forcing the government and   management to take recourse to serious, positive and pragmatic policy interventions pursued in a sustained and focused manner and involving the entire workforce in rebuilding process has resulted in turning around of companies from rock bottom, not retrenchments or any other primitive measure.  

The issue before us, let us have a deeper understanding, is not whether VRS or, for that matter, any other counterproductive measure is justified or not. The huge challenge before us is revival of our strategic beloved Company.    

 Fundamentally, BSNL has bled and continues to bleed on account of meeting the massive social obligations of the government without compensation envisaged in policy commitments to achieve basic objectives of providing universal services at affordable prices in remotest parts.  

Before going into the reasons of BSNL’s present precarious position, let us look at what CAG has to say about Air India’s and Indian Airlines present deep crisis:

Unless trade unions wage a spirited and protracted fight to expose the policies of the government and management that continue to cripple BSNL, measures like VRS, wage freeze, moratorium on promotions etc etc. are going to be just of no consequence in revival of BSNL. Assuming today, one lakh workers go home prematurely, next year remaining two lakh would be a huge liability unless company starts growing exponentially and this growth is possible through sustained struggle  alone.

 The real issue, therefore, before us today is to safeguard Company from getting bankrupt to save future generations from losing their jobs. The issue certainly is not whether trade unions should become instruments of sending their workers home early: the real challenge is how to protect our workers from such exploitation and vulnerabilities. Individuals, not trade unions, have however freedom to make a choice between the two. Let none of us be carried away by narrow considerations and forget that Organizations have never got rebuilt through draconian measures, but through positive policy initiatives forced through sustained struggle.     


1) ITS absorption - option called for the absorption of ITS and other similar services. Last date for submitting option -08-11-2011 and last date for forwarding of option to DOT with prescribed performa by BSNL/MTNL - 25-11-2011

Addl. Secretary DOT asked CMD BSNL to approve VRS scheme as discussed in their meeting on 1st september,2011 along with identification of non-sensitive parking lots for 15% non-performers (CGMs, PGMs, GMs) and identification of field stock of motivated and capable officers to replace non-performers and action plan


 NEW12th Sept 2011:  As per CHQ INSTRUCTIONS ON PROPOSED DHARNA ON 14TH Sept 2011:  SNEA  has decided not to participate in the Dharna programmes on 14th Sept 2011


Central HQrs of SNEA has not taken any decision as yet regarding participation in the programmes of protest action on 14th Sept 2011, calls for which has been given by Central JAC. This is for information of our field units.

 We strongly feel that the move by the management to curtail any of the existing rights/concessions of the employees, under the guise of saving the company should be strongly opposed. The employees cannot be punished for the failures of otherpolicy makers . This is in view of the latest order of BSNL management which orders ,    

     (1) Withdrawal of Medical Allowance "without voucher".

(2)Withdrawal of Encashment of Leave while availing LTC/HomeTown LTC.


(3)   Freezing of LTC for 2 years.

 Congratulation:- Amravati Cable tender deadlock finally ends......

In a joint meeting of BSNL officials and cable contractors, it is now unanemously decided to end the prolonged cable tender deadlock in Amravati SSA. All cable contractors finally agreed with some of the core issues which was causing delay in finalising cable tender. Since cable tender was not finalised in time, it was made difficult for our field executives in Amravati SSA to rectify the cable faults due to which no of cable faults were drastically increased causing panic in BSNL's landline customers. Our PSTN customers in Amravati is experincing this 2nd panic after the big issue of CDR billing. Any how ,our executives in Amravati are now feeling big relief as they were unable to rectify the cable faults due to financial and labour constraints.Meanwhile it is also been decided that cable faults will be cleared from cable contractors till the cable tender gets finalised which may take more or less  a month or two . Work will be carried out thr quotations well within the power of GMT till the time cable tender gets finalised. Shri A Suryanarayan DGM finance,Shri Jacob Darib & Shri R B Vywavhare CAOs, Shri D V Rokade AGM Plg, Shri D B Dange AGM CFA-III,Shri S B Dandge AGM CFA-I,Shri S R Kalmegh , Shri D H Bhad , Shri U W Kawalkar SDEs and all cable contractors attended this meeting......

To do so it was also decided to have combine meeting of BSNL Amravati executives and cable contractor soon.

 Unavailability of Cable Tender in Amravati SSA

All field SDEs of Amravati SSA are facing difficulties due to unavailability of regular U/G cable tender as period of extension of  a month given to the existing approved cable contractor has been expired on dated 30.04.2011. It is leaned that cable tender floated by GMT office is not being finalized since last three months due to obvious reasons as no tenderer seems to be willing to participate in tendering process. Cable tender was already floated 2-3 times  and now also GMT office has issued the NIT for the same, but there is no fruitful positive sign that this tender will get finalized soon. Delay in finalization of cable tender may badly affect cable maintenance in entire Amravati SSA. 

A decade has passed as rectification of cable faults , cable laying and associated work  are being  carried out through Cable Tender and our field SDEs were heavily relied on the contractor for the same. This procedure of getting the cable maintenance being done through cable contractor has abolished our own cable maintenance system by virtue of which we were rectifying cable faults from our own office field line staff.

Recently large no of underground works like laying of water pipe lines, drainage system, laying of electric cable, road widening , constructions of bridges etc are being  carried out by various govt/private agencies due to which BSNL’s cable is being cut repeatedly. Unavailability of cable contractor and Sudden stoppage of work of cable maintenance from cable contractor has made the task more difficult of rectifying the cable fault from our own staff under such adverse conditions. It is also essential to rectify cable faults in time for giving uninterrupted broadband service to our customers. Delay in rectification may result adversely and all of them are finding themselves in difficult situation considering financial constraint on one side and shortage of trained field staff and untrained outsourced personnel on other side. It is also unsafe and risky  to carry out these works from unskilled and unauthorized personnel which is against the rules and regulation of department circulated time to time.

Hence immediate finalization of cable tender is essential for timely restoration of cable fault or otherwise contracts of the existing cable tender may be further extended for a period of one/two months. In this regard most of the field SDEs in Amravati are also demanding guidelines for rectification of cable faults in absence of cable contactor


 BSNL-MTNL may get Rs 3000 crore as aid from Govt -A  news.


 NEW10thMay 2011:  Payment of cash in lieu of Towel,oap,Glass tumbler,Pen & Refills etc:  MH Circle has issued instructions for paying in cash an amount of Rupees 650/- to all Group-A & B Officers and Rupees 480/- to all Group C and D staff members in lieu of Towel,Soap,Glass tumbler,Pen and Refills etc for the year 2011-12.

CDR Issue:----
BSNL has adopted CDR to make its service provision /implementation easy
and faster but it seems that it is adversely affecting the overall functioning of BSNL
particularly in landline sector and Landline of subscribers are closing thier telephones
due to complete failure of CDR in dealing with their billing complaints and others. 
This has resulted in decline of BSNL's revenue in and subscribers are loosing faith
on BSNL .
In fact,CDR is  totally vendor based project which has been gifted to us
inplace of our own DOTsoft project.Problems in CDR are mainly
of two types 1) System generated ( i.e. shortcomings in s/w ) and it’s a vendor
mistake 2) Manual mistake ( Mistake committed while generating the order in CDR)
and its our mistake. for every problem which remained unsolved at our level,our
nodal incharge is requested to book the docket to solve the problem and the reason
behind it is no more hidden now.the funny thing is that instead of imposing penalty,
the vendor is being paid for the every closing of docket booked  and whatever
problem we are facing are mainly system generated .So technical agreement made
between vendor and BSNl is questionable ? and needs to be properly reviewed by
Top BSNL Mangement stop this flow of BSNL money otherwise if such projects 
remain continued further,  we will be left with work of collecting money from our
enraged  customers for poor services and passing it to vendor....that too at the cost
of loosing the little faith which subscribers are having on BSNL.

No funds in the a/c of BSNL Amravati - Only Electrical bills /GPF payment


Financial transactions of BSNL Amravati have become almost standstill as Finance wing of  Circle office Mumbai has allotted negligible funds to Amravati SSA. In the beginning of feb’2011 , BSNL Amravati was having  negligible balance in it’s account.and lack of sufficient funds has resulted into non payment of  MSEDCL electriciy bills in time , non distribution of temp advances to field SDEs, Non payment of bills for small repairing /maintenance  work , non payment of TA/DA,LTC & other advances, non payment of GPF, non payment of advances for conducting open session, loknyayalaya etc, non payment of bills for small repairing/maintenance  work etc.
            It has come to our notice that CAO Amravati has requested for the financial fund of Rs 83 lakhs for 1st Feb -10th feb '2011 out of which only 34 lakhs have been allotted and for 11th feb'2011 - 20th Feb'2011 request was made for 98 lakhs but only 14 lakhs have been given so far . As on today BSNL Amravati has received fund of Rs 44 lakhs , out of which 40 lakhs are  utilised for paying electricity bills and remaining 4 lakhs for paying GPF. Rest is the story mentioned above. Due to non payment of electricity bill in time , one of BTS at Arjun nagar Amravati was diconnected by MSEDCL . Our SDEs in field /rural areas have recd several notices from MSEDCL for paying the MSEDCL bills of Exchanges and BTS and threat of possible disconnection of electric supply. Due to non receipt of temp advances, our field executives are unable to execute small unavoidable work for maintaining telecom services,. Due such financial crunch , everything is standstill and our executives are unnecessarily distracted from their daily routine work.

           This is happening at the juncture when we have to concentrate on achieving target set by Hon CGMT MH circle . Without funds , no one will be able to manage proper  telecom services. It will have retrospective effect in field eqpts/operations and manging manpower.  It is to mention here that due to delay in paying electricity bills , we have to pay approx 60,000/- extra as overdue in this month .


             SNEA Amravati have brought this issue in the notice of our Circle Secretary Com M S adasul.  This is also been discussed in the meeting with Hon GMT Amravati on dtd 15/02/2011 and he has also instructed CAO accordingly.Let us hope that adequate funds will be immediately released to BSNL Amravati

 Pay anomaly of JTO 2007 & 2008 batches: The committee is meeting today on 04th Feb. In continuation of the meeting with PGM(FP), Chairman of the Committee on 02.02.2011, GS along with both AGSs met ED(Fin) and other Committee members Sr GM(SR), Sr GM(Pers) and GM(EF) and held further discussions on the issue.  Assn explained in detail how the E1A scale was approved by BSNL and DOT in 2002 after the agreement with SNEA(I). Any proposal to give E1 scale or E1A scale with some increments is not at all acceptable as Placing JTOs recruited in E1A scale in E1 scale is nothing but a demotion. Further this will create further anomalies in the future also. So we requested to implement pre-revised scale as an interim measure.

IPTC Incharge at pune who is handling CDR and billing of Amravati & Akola SSA has made several mistakes in the bill of Oct'2010 causing chain of billing problems from Oct'2010 to till now.

4)Posting of sufficient staff for mobile provisioning work:- In mobile provisioning section , due to krishi plan /pyari Jodi connections, etc workload has been incresed considerably , more over as it includes manual intervention and retirement of some of the posted staff there ,  we have requested GMT Amravati to post additional staff in Mobile provisioning section which GMT Amravati has taken note of it .

5)We have also discussed the issue of  recent letter from AGM Plg asking to put date of checking in the bills of U/G Cable maintenance and construction bills.
