                                   UPDATE on  HR issues and 3rd PRC:

The delay in 3rd PRC constitution is creating wide spread resentment among the Executives in various CPSUs. National Confederation of Officers Association (NCOA) in which SNEA is a major constituent, decided to organize various Trade Union Programmes demanding the constitution of 3rd PRC. On 01.06.16, demonstration infront of DPE office, 22.06.2016 Dharna and 27.07.16, March to DPE office at New Delhi etc planned. We will struggle till the constitution of 3rd PRC.

Another big challenge before us is that BSNL has to implement standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A before constitution of 3rd PRC. The entry level pay scales of E2, E3 approval is very crucial for 3rd PRC. Otherwise the pay revision for all the BSNL Executives will be under trouble.

The undue delay in settling the HR issues compelled the Assn to serve notice for Trade Union Actions. Eventhough Assn had submitted the charter of demands on 11.02.2016, mgt didn’t taken any action to resolve the issues. Our agitation programmes compelled the management to initiate actions on various HR issues as given under.

A . Officiating pay fixation, protection of pay:

 withdrawal of wrong clarifications by BSNL: Thousands of JTOs, JAOs, SDEs, AOs officiated in higher post during DoT and BSNL period prior to the clarification are facing reduction in pay by one or two increments and recovery of lakhs of rupees. Later on BSNL decided not to recover the pay immediately and referred the matter to a committee. For the time being, the orders are implemented only by few Circles like WB, JKD, BR, UP, MP, TN, KRL, CHTD, CTD etc. The EPP clarification dated 19.02.2010 denied pay protection on offtg promotion which is against the provisions of FRSR, MoF orders, DoT orders etc. From DoT period onwards pay protection allowed till the clarification. Surprisingly, the EPP clarification dated 30.05.2007 not allows pay fixation with one increment from same scale on officiating promotion where as EPP provides the same on any post based promotion. Assn was struggling against these two clarifications since 2010. Unfortunately the committee formed to examine the issue also not gone into depth and simply okayed the clarification which compelled us to make it an agenda in the strike notice. After lot of deliberations, now mgt understood the mistakes and assured that necessary steps will be taken to correct both the clarifications and given a target date of two months time. This will give relief to thousands of Executives facing reduction in pay and recovery. This is one of the major achievement due to the agitation.

B.  Membership verification: 

 Due to multiplicity of Assns and their vested interests, none of the important HR issues are not getting resolved. Our committed members and the Executives are the victims of this. Few are taking the entire cadre into ransom. Even Non executives are working together for the employees and could achieve better than the highly educated Executives. It is high time for those people to open their eyes and see what is happening. Overall cadre interest is totally neglected/missing on various issues, rather petty interest in taking the leading positions. Recently we are observing that instead of making serious efforts to get the Khan Committee recommendations which will benefit the entire cadre by upgrading the scales from E1A to E2 and E2A to E3, will give better pay for the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007, give promotions to thousands and thousands of Executives who are waiting for promotions for years together, the anomaly in 1st TBP for thousands of Executives are getting resolved, the Assns made the recommendations are now, not allowing the management to implement the same. To end this deadlock situation, membership verification is only the solution. Management now convinced the same and assured that process will be initiated again soon.

Whatever the drama going on nowadays and the crocodile tears witnessing, all are the due to this development and not due to the eagerness to settle the issues. They want to confuse the membership, taking up unrealistic demands in the last moment knowing very well that nothing is going to happen. Otherwise they could have allowed the mgt to implement the recommendations and struggle for the remaining issues after that. SNEA is demanding the same, implement the recommendations without any dilution and change and address the remaining issues one by one after that. Remaining in E3 scale for 10 years with a promotion and fixation from SDE to Sr SDE after 5 years( that also the Executive reaches E3 scale in the 6th year instead of 11th year, from E2A to E3 scale in SDE grade) is the biggest problem for them just like 7 MTs rect in SRD MT rect. The advantage for the cadre getting upgraded pay scales of E2 scale, the benefit to the thousands of young JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 etc are not their interest or priority. Even they are ready to accept E1+5, E2, E6 instead of E2 , E3!

In the near future all the Executives will get an opportunity to respond to this attitude which is killing the future of thousands of Executives for vested interest.

C. Promotions in various cadres:

All the promotions are stayed by various courts. JTO to SDE, SDE to DE, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, SDE to EE promotions is stayed. To expedite the JTO to SDE case at Ernakulam, as per our request, BSNL engaged senior lawyer from Hon Supreme Court. Case is expected hearing in June. The stay on declaration of LDCE result was vacated by the CAT, Chandigargh. Immediately after that Assn intervened and met DIR(HR) and ensured the declaration of results. However stay continuing on promotion. This case along with the case on SDE to DE promotion is listed for 08.07.2016. Assn pursuing all the cases in different courts. However due to the multiplicity of the litigation, the only viable alternative is CPSU Hierarchy.

D.Joint Committee recommendations on various HR issues:

The Jt Committee was constituted in 2012 itself. However it was not functional at all. On pay scales, our demand was E2 to E7 pay scales from 2002 onwards. SNEA is struggling for that. Same demand we are pursued during 2nd PRC also. From 2014 onwards, SNEA alone started struggles as the other two Assns in U F are not shown any interest in resolving the issues. During that agitation in 2014, mgt once again send the E1A and E2A proposal to DoT for its reconsideration. Meanwhile mgt almost decided to demote the JTO and SDE cadres from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2. The E1 scale in JTO RR and E1+5 etc are the decisions in this regard. Sensing the danger of demotion of the cadre and its far reaching consequences, SNEA intensified the struggle. We had taken a conscious decision in the Jaipur CWC in 2014 that first we have to address E1A and E2A to E2 and E3 to protect the cadres from demotion, protecting the 5 TB promotions before 3rd PRC and then to focus on the change in other pay scales. If E2, E3 is not settled before 3rd PRC constitution, it is going to affect our future seriously. SNEA alone pursued the case in DoT to ensure that DoT is not changing the stand. Then DoT referred the matter to DPE. In advance SNEA met the Secretary/DPE and other officers and convinced them to reject the proposal of E1A and E2A. Finally DPE also rejected the proposal in July, 2014. Even then, mgt was not ready to consider the case which compelled SNEA to serve notice in 2015. On our agitation, CMD, BSNL intervened and the committee reconstituted with clear direction to submit the recommendations within 3 months. The committee submitted its recommendations on 07.10.2015. It is a great breakthrough as there is a committee recommendation now on the important HR issues.

The non-resolution of the HR issues compelled the Assn to serve notice for trade union actions on 28.04.2016 on the charter of demands submitted on 11.02.2016. Meanwhile we witnessed that some negative forces are working overtime to derail the issues and undermine the Khan Committee recommendations. Eventhough they had made the recommendations and become party to that, we had seen that they are disowning their own recommendations for petty interests, more than the management. Sensing the danger of burial of Khan Committee, Assn also started agitation. We are very well knowing that once Khan Committee recommendations are put under cold storage, our demand for CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and first TBP after 4 to 5 years also go into cold storage. In the whole process even they demanded to reduce the hard earned TB promotions from 5 to 4. The 5 TBP and pay scales are the results of the struggle of SNEA alone in 2002 when all other 14 Assns are ready to get absorbed in BSNL for just Rs 2000/- without any terms and conditions. Our struggle in 2002 assured us 5 TB promotions between 4 to 6 years. Till that we are having only one TBP, that also after 12 years. So, any reduction in the number of promotion is unacceptable to us as 5 TBP is the result of our struggle. Those who never struggled or not taken any pain to get it, can easily demand for reduction of number of promotions for their petty interests. SNEA is duty bound to protect them and will struggle for that. From 1980s onwards our Assn struggled for years together for the upgradation of the pay scales of the basic cadre, JTO. In 1986 we got it upgraded from 1400 scale to 1640, in 1996 again we got it upgraded from 1640 scale to 2000(6500-10500) and again in 2002 we upgraded it from 2000 scale to E1A scale. So any attempt to reduce the pay scale of JTO or equivalent cadres will be opposed by SNEA tooth and nail. We will struggle till we achieve our goal of upgradation of the pay scales from E1A to E2 and E2A to E3 and then upto E7.

Our agitation once again put the issues back on track and management started acting on various demands. On 11.05.2016 itself, DIR(HR) given administrative approval for the implementation of Khan Committee recommendations on standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A. A detailed discussion was held on the charter of demands with CMD and DIR(HR) on 17.05.2016 and concrete assurances were given to resolve all the issues in a time bound manner. An action plan and target date also fixed. The status of various demands are as under:

E. Implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A.

 

The strong demand from SNEA to consider change of other pay scales of E3 (Sr SDE/Sr AO) to E4, E4(DE/CAO) to E5, E5(DGM) to E6 and E6 to E7 got favourable response from CMD. Our strong stand that 5 promotions are to remain unchanged, compelled mgt to respond like that and we got a commitment from CMD that this issue will be considered after E2, E3. Due to the urgency of settlement of E2, E3 scales before constitution of 3rd PRC and to give relief to our young JTO/JAOs of 2007, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015 and to the upcoming batches it was decided to delink E2, E3 protecting 5 promotions from the cascading effect (E4 to E7) and process it on fast track. The danger of reduction of promotions, we could overcome by this as there was a strong demand from some negative and divisive forces to reduce the promotion and implement E2 to E6 for their petty interests, mortgaging the overall interest of the cadre. Their intention was to reach somehow E4 scale even at the cost of one promotion without getting any benefit and creating huge anomaly and pay loss/reduction in increment for thousands of comrades and torpedoing the implementation of CPSU Hierarchy. They are not even able to cite one advantage of their proposal whereas SNEA pointed out several disadvantages. The gameplan is to kill Khan Committee recommendations as it benefit the cadre, large number of Executives most of them are from SNEA and the future of the young comrades. This attempt was foiled by our timely intervention. Further we protected the other two major recommendations on CPSU Hierarchy and first TBP. It was assured that the proposal will be processed to MC by 31.05.2016. The real struggle on E2, E3 will be to get the approval of BSNL Board and DoT. For that we have to get geared up.

The Board is not even clearing the E1+5 increments for the remaining Executives for the last one and half years. Then one can imagine the fate of E2 and E3. E2, E3, —E7 in a single stretch may be even rejected by Board, even before reaching DoT. In that case E2, E3 also will go. Evenif it reaches DoT, it may have to go to the Union Cabinet due to the cabinet decision in MTNL pension issue. Knowing these facts, strategically we got delinked E2, E3 from cascading effect and in second stage to get them processed.

F        .Implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy:

Assn strongly demanded for its early implementation as all the promotions are stayed by various courts and we are struggling for years to get relief from the courts. The only solution is early implementation of CPSU Hierarchy. In DoT era, only one financial upgradation was available, that also after 12 years. By the struggle of SNEA(TEOA) alone in 2002, we could get five TB promotions by reducing the residency period from 12 years to 4-6 years. By the Khan Committee recommendation, JTOs after 5 years of service will become SDE, SDEs after 5 years of service will become Sr SDE(total 10 years) and Sr SDE after 5 years of service will become DE(total 15 years), ensuring minimum 3 functional promotions in the career of an Executive. Further we demanded for 1) one time relaxation for promotion to SDE, Sr SDE and DE grades without DPC for the Executives in higher scales, 2) change of designations to Asst Manager, Dy Manager, Manager, Asst General Manager, 3) uniform date of promotion to end anomalies etc. CMD and DIR(HR) assured to consider the demands positively. CPSU Hierarchy will address all seniority related issues like LDCE seniority, promotion quota seniority, Direct/Dept rect, Qualifying/non qualifying etc. The proposals will be finalised by 31.08.2016.

 G. First TB Promotion uniformly after 4 to 5 years instead of 4 to 6 years:

It was a major anomaly for the 1993, 1994, 1995 — etc batches who got first TBP in 6 years whereas their seniors as well as juniors got it in 4 to 5 years. SNEA alone taken up this issue in the agitation in 2015 and got it added as a terms of reference of the committee. It was assured that it will be processed to MC, Board, DoT etc immediately after CPSU giving relief to thousands of our comrades. For this purpose the EPP dated 18.01.2007 has to be amended w.e.f 01.10.2000.

H.30% superannuation benefits.

CMD assured 6% contribution at our Jaipur AIC to begin with. Mgt later on changed the mind and made a proposal of 3% in a meeting held on 19.02.16 in which SNEA was not present. Since much opposition was not there from the participants (those who are insisting nothing less than 12%) in the meeting, mgt gone ahead with the proposal. SNEA strongly protested against this betrayal and demanded minimum 6% as assured. The proposal of 3% is now approved by BSNL Board. On our strong protest mgt decided to review the contribution. CMD and DIR(HR) assured us that the medical expenditure calculation will be re-examined and on actual basis, contribution will be made. It is surprising to see that our friends kept a studied silence on this issue at a crucial time, where the social security of thousands of the employees are involved whereas they didn’t taken any time to serve notice only on MT issue, even for SRD MT.

 I. Notional pay of E1A and E2A for Civil/Elect/Arch/TF/PA/PS cadre w.e.f 01.10.2000:

This issue was agitating since long time. It was SNEA who took up the issue since beginning. Our AIC at Kannyakumari decided to work for uniform promotion policy and uniform pay scales for all the Executives, irrespective of wings. On promotions, we could achieve it for TBP through EPP. On functional promotion, it can be achieved through CPSU. But pay scale demand could not achieve for the above cadres eventhough we are struggling. But we could make a breakthrough on 17.05.2016 when SNEA got an assurance from CMD that this anomaly will be resolved. This is another achievement of our recent agitation.

 J. First TBP after 4 years for JTO(LA) and Sr SDE at par with AAO and Sr AO:

Recent clarification created wide spread resentment among the Executives because of the discrimination. During discussion management agreed to re-examine the matter and render justice to the JTO(LA) and Sr SDEs. In addition to that the clarification has created large scale pay reduction for those promoted as CAOs during the intervening period as they are losing the one increment they got on CAO promotion in E4 scale. Assn demanded to address this problem also as the benefit given to the CAOs cannot be taken away by another clarification.

We have to continue our struggle to get the commitments implemented as per the target date, without any deviation. 

 

 

 

 

Joint committee on standard pay scales of E2, E3 etc for JTOs, SDEs and Stand of SNEA

 new

Background:

  1. The 2nd wage revision order was issued by DPE vide letter No. 2(70)/08-DPE(WC) dated 26.11.2008 with revised pay scales from E0 to E9. There was no replacement scales for the intermediary pay scales of E1A, E2A etc in the DPE order. Again DPE vide letter No. 2(70)/08-DPE(WC)-GL-VII/09 dated 02.04.2009 clarified that: “There will be no change in the ten pay scales of below Board level posts as indicated in OM dated 26.11.2008 and there is no justification for introducing intermediary pay scales. If there have been any aberrations, they need to be corrected. Every officer has to be fitted into the corresponding new pay scale
Grade Pre revised IDA scale Revised IDA scales
E1 8600-225-14600 16400-40500
E1A 9850-250-14600 Not revised
E2 10750-300-16750 20600-46500
E2A 11875-300-17275 Not revised
E3 13000-350-18250 24900-50500
E4 14500-350-18700 29100-54500
E5 16000-400-20800 32900-58000
E6 17500-400-22300 36600-62000
E7 18500-450-23900 43200-66000
E9 23750-600-28550 62000-80000
  1. BSNL Board approved replacement pay scales of E1A, E2A, E3, —— etc and send it to the Administrative Ministry, DoT. The replacement scales proposed by BSNL for intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A was Rs 18850-40500 and Rs 22800-46500 respectively.
  1. In 2000, the pay scales are negotiated one to facilitate absorption. Moreover intermediary pay scales are allowed by DPE during that time for other CPSUs also. But on 01.01.2007, all the scales should be the replacement scale, the minimum of the revised pay scale is arrived by multiplying the minimum of pre-revised scale with the multiplication factor. The multiplication factor used by DPE and BSNL for arriving at revised E1A, E2A and E3 scales was 1.91.
  1. The minimum of replacement scale of E1A and E2A cannot be less than Rs 18850 and Rs 22800 since on multiplying 9850 with 1.91, it reaches 18850 and 11875 with 1.91 reaches 22800.
  1. DoT approved the proposed pay scales except the intermediary pay scales of E1A, E2A and E9A and issued the presidential directive vide letter No.61-01/2009-SU dated 27.02.2009. In the case of intermediary pay scales, DoT mentioned that it will be considered separately.
  1. BSNL issued the presidential order dated 05.03.2009 and it is stated that in respect of Executives in E1A and E2A pay scales, their pay may be fixed in the revised E1 and E2 pay scales respectively —-, till the time new scales are notified. BSNL operated E1 and E2 scales in place of E1A and E2A provisionally till the time new scales are notified.
  1. BSNL recruited JTOs in 2007 and 2008 with an assurance through the paper notification that “the pay is likely to be revised upwards”.
  1. To address the issue of reduction of pay on implementation of E1 pay scales provisionally instead of E1A, Pillai committee recommended 5 increments and fixed then at Rs 19020 as an interim measure till the pay scales are finalized.
  1. DoT rejected the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A thrice and communicated the same to BSNL.
  2. A Joint committee consists of members from official side and General secretaries of SNEA(I), AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA has been constituted on 28.02.2012 with specific terms of reference. One of the terms of reference of the committee was “Due to non approval of E1A and E2A pay scales by Government, to examine the introduction of E2 and E3 pay scales for JTOs, SDEs and equivalent cadres”.
  1. BSNL further taken up the E1A and E2A scales with DoT and DoT referred the matter to DPE.
  1. DPE vide letter No. W-08/0002/2014-DPE(WC) dated 09.07.2014 turn down the proposal of replacement scales for the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A and directed that every officer has to be fixed into standard pay scales. The same has been communicated to BSNL by DoT.
  1. The Joint committee has been reconstituted on 08.05.2015 with Sri Mohd Ashraf Khan, ED(NB) as Chairman, Smt Madhu Arora, GM(Estt) and Smt Smita Choudhary, GM(EF) as members. 

The terms of reference of the committee (KHAN)are:

 1.Due to non approval of E1A and E2A pay scales by the Government, to examine the introduction of E2 and E3 pay scales for JTOs, SDE and equivalent cadres.

 2.To examine the introduction of CPSU cadre hierarchy viz-a-viz present set up.

 3.To examine the implementation of first time bound promotion uniformly after 4 years w.e.f 01.10.2000.

 The committee has given time upto 15.08.2015 to submit its recommendations.

The committee may consider the following facts also:

  • The replacement scales for the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A approved by BSNL Board has been rejected by DoT and DPE and DPE order stipulates that only standard pay scales approved by Govt and notified by DPE on 26.11.2008 has to be implemented by every CPSU and every Executive has to be fixed into standard pay scales.
  • The multiplication factor used by DPE and BSNL for arriving at revised E1A and E2A scales was 1.91. So the minimum of revised scales of E1A and E2A cannot be less than Rs 18850 and Rs 22800 respectively.
  • Mandate given to the committee is very much limited: “—– to examine the introduction of E2 and E3 pay scales for JTOs, SDEs and equivalent cadres”.
  • NTPC

    Committee may note that other CPSUs like NTPC, BHEL, ONGC where intermediary pay scales were introduced prior to 01.01.2007 switched over to standard pay scales w.e.f 01.01.2007. All such PSUs switched over to the next higher standard pay scales as the replacement scale cannot be less than that of the replacement scales arriving after the multiplication factor.

  • Examples of NTPC and BHEL given below:

Committee may also note that such CPSUs in which intermediary pay scales were available, after the switching over to the standard pay scales, retained more than one grade in the same pay scales in order to continue with the promotional avenues and promotions offered from one grade to the next higher grade on the same scale. 

For example:

  1. a) NTPC giving promotions from E1 to E2 grade and E2 to E2A grade in the same pay scale of Rs. 24900-50500 (E3 scale).
  2. b) From E6 to E7, E7 to E7A and E7A to E8 grades in the same pay scale of Rs. 51300-73000 (E8 scale).
  3. c) BHEL giving promotions from E4 to E5 grade and E5 to E6 grade in the same pay scale of Rs. 43200-66000 (E7 scale).
  4. d) From E6 to E6A, E6A to E7 and E7 to E8 grades in the same pay scale of Rs. 51300-73000 (E8 scale).

Necessary changes in the TBP order dated 18.01.2007 and RRs of JTO, SDE and equivalent cadres can be done by the respective cadre controlling authorities.

The committee may consider the fact that the recommendations shall pass the test of a) Management committee of BSNL Board, b) The full BSNL Board with DoT/External directors and the scrutiny of DoT for issuing the presidential orders.

The recommendation of the committee is going to decide the future of about 10,000 young Executives. A positive decision will motivate about 10,000 executives for another 25 to 30 years of their service and a negative decision will demotivate and demoralize them for the same period of 25 to 30 years.

Recommendations  of the Khan Committee:

The following facts were discussed in detail in three meeting held by the committee in which three Associations AIBSNLEA,AIGETOA,SNEA were present and they have signed the joint committee recommendation

  1. All the three Association initially demanded replacement of nonstandard pay scales with cascading effect from E2 to E7 scales
  2. Chairman and other members clarified that it is not in the term of reference of the committee as term of reference are restricted to examine the implementation of E1A-àE2 and E2AàE3 scale and financial implication for this up gradation without cascading effect is 40 cores annually. If arrears are paid then expenditure will be Rs.260 crores.
  3. Thus up gradation of nonstandard scales with cascading effect was never in the scope of this committee as it has financial implication of Rs.400 crores  .
  4. During discussion in the committee meetings it was clarified that there will be disparity between seniors and juniors in term of time span to reach the same pay scale as at present seniors got E-3 scale in 11 years whereas the juniors will get the same scale in 5 years
  5. To address this anomaly SDEs and Sr.SDEs will be placed in the same E-3 scale while giving one increment in the same scale from SDEàSDE promotion to avoid any financial loss and same is being followed in BHEL and NTPC as per detail cited above.
  6. It was also clarified that pay scale up gradation will Impact the EPP,MSRR and MTRRs and same will be reviewed accordingly.

By considering all the facts the committee gave the following recommendations :–

1.The Standard pay scales for JTO and equivalent grades replacement of the pre-revised E1A pays scales may be fixed at E2 level in revised scale.Similarily,those of SDE and equivalent grades may be replaced from pre-revised E2A pay scale to E# in revised scale.                     <<View Khan committee recommendations>>

2.Necessary changes in EPP may be made, if required ,and also the approval of DOT for issue of related pension outgo, gratuity etc., may be sought by concerned wing of BSNL.

Who will get benefits from these recommendations :

The whole JTO Cadre will be upgraded which is demand of the association since absorption in October 2000 and there is no loss to seniors.

1.The 2008 recruited JTO who are facing pay loss of Rs.3800 at the initial stage itself.

2.The recently promoted JTOs from TTA to JTO LIC (2500 Approx)who are fixed in the E1 scale will be upgraded to E2 scale and will get E3 scale in five years .

3.The JTOs who have recently appeared in the TTA to JTO LIC and waiting for their promotion

4.All the fresh recruitment in the cadre of JTOs from open market.

 Now Comrades Both the Associations (AIBSNLEA  and AIGETOA) misleading the people  should explain to the executives why?

  • The have signed the recommendation after long deliberations, surprisingly they are opposing it now! Whether they made the recommendations without knowing the facts or simply made recommendations? Or without knowing the issues and its implications, simply making the noises now to divert the attention and delay and derail the implementation?
  • Both Associations should explain why they are opposing the changes in EPP to address the anomalies now itself as recommended by the Khan Committee (2nd part of the recommendation) by modifying the EPP from 01.01.2007 along with the pay scales proposal?
  • Why they are insisting to create anomaly and continue with anomaly even after knowing very well that huge anomalies will happen?
  • Already large number of anomalies like Officiating pay fixation and pay protection, Antedating, seniors getting less pay than the Juniors etc., remain addressed and management is not addressing it even after Supreme Court order
  • Analysing these likely anomalies, Khan Committee recommended to make necessary changes in the EPP to protect the promotions and pay.
  • They have no concern for the juniors or seniors or the future recruits? If they are sincere in their statements, they have to allow management to implement the Khan Committee recommendations fully, without any dilution, ie. Recommendation of replacement of E1A by E2, E2A by E3 with necessary changes in the EPP as recommended
  • SNEA will not allow any dilution of the recommendations which creates anomaly, reduction in number of promotions, pay reduction and recovery etc.
  • SNEA stand from 2002 onwards is very clear and firm, we want E2, E3, E3, —, E7. In 2002, we could achieve E1A, E2A, —-, E6 but never left our original demand.
  • During 2nd PRC, again we are struggling for E2, E3 to E7. Now we are reaching near to our goal of E2 to E7 by getting E2 to E6 now with five promotions.

 We will continue our struggle for the original demand of E2, E3, —, E7 during 3rd PRC with five promotions.

Comrades, we had only deferred the agitation programme, not withdrawn it knowing very well that lot of negative forces are working against the resolution of the issues. We should be very careful about their tactics. We have to keep all the organizational preparedness to respond in a short notice if there is any deviation from the commitment and target dates.

Note: Dear Office Bearers, Kindly inform all about the above concrete assurances given by CMD. Take printouts and distribute to all executives

Both Associations  should explain why they are opposing the changes in EPP to address the anomalies now itself as recommended by the Khan Committee (2nd part of the recommendation) by modifying the EPP from 01.01.2007 along with the pay scales proposal?
Why they are insisting to create anomaly and continue with anomaly evenafter knowing very well that huge anomalies will happen? Already large number of anomalies like Officiating pay fixation and pay protection, Antedating, seniors getting less pay than the Juniors etc., remain addressed and management  is not addressing it even after Supreme Court orders.
Why both Assns demanding to create anomaly and reduce the pay by one increment for thousands of SDEs or AOs who got one additional increment on promotion as DE or CAO between 01.10.2009 and 01.10.2014 in E4 scale? According to their plan, all will reach E5 scale on 01.10.2009 itself instead of 01.10.2014. Thousands of them are retired. They want to make their life also miserable?
Why both Assns demanding to create anomaly and reduce one promotion for the seniors to E6 scale which is due on 01.10.2019 which will affect the pension also? According to their plan, all will reach E6 scale on 01.10.2014 itself instead of 01.10.2019.
Why both Assns demanding to create anomaly and miss the additional increment got on DGM promotion recently in E5 scale? According to their plan, all will reach E6 scale on 01.10.2014.
Why both Assns demanding to create an anomaly that JTOs as on 01.10.2000 in E1A scale and promoted as SDEs in 2004 will reach E4 scale in 2008 and SDEs as on 01.10.2000 in E2A scale will reach E4 scale on 01.10.2009?
Why both Assns want to create anomaly and want to reduce the promotions for the youngsters and seniors from five to four?
Analysing these likely anomalies, Khan Committee recommended to make necessary changes in the EPP to protect the promotions and pay. Surprisingly they are opposing it now! Whether they made the recommendations without knowing the facts or simply made recommendations? Or without knowing the issues and its implications, simply making the noises now to divert the attention and delay and derail the implementation?
They have no concern for the juniors or seniors or the future recruits? If they are sincere in their statements, they have to allow management to implement the Khan Committee recommendations fully, without any dilution, ie. Recommendation of replacement of E1A by E2, E2A by E3 with necessary changes in the EPP as recommedded. SNEA will not allow any dilution of the recommendations which creates anomaly, reduction in number of promotions, pay reduction and recovery etc.
SNEA stand from 2002 onwards is very clear and firm, we want E2, E3, E3, —, E7. In 2002, we could achieve E1A, E2A, —-, E6 but never left our original demand. During 2nd PRC, again we are struggling for E2, E3 to E7. Now we are reaching near to our goal of E2 to E7 by getting E2 to E6 now with five promotions. We will continue our struggle for the original demand of E2, E3, —, E7 during 3rd PRC with five promotions.
