GS, CHQ President and AGSs Com P P Rao and P. K. Shukla met GM(Pers) and Jt GM(Pers) on 13.06.2016 and held discussions on JTO to SDE case at Ernakulam. BSNLCO allowed Kerala Circle to engage a senior lawyer from Supreme Court for expediting the case and final hearing and accordingly informed the High Court on 18.05.2016 with a request to allot a specific date. Hon HC directed BSNL to file a separate application in this regard. The application has to be filed as per the convenience of the Sr lawyer. Necessary approval was given by the competent authority. Subsequently, Sr lawyer demanded to engage a junior lawyer to assist him, that also allowed. But, now Sr Lawyer demanded revision of the rates and fee hike from the approved rates which Legal cell is not agreeing. However Mgt is considering the matter. Assn requested to take immediate positive decision and file application to get the case listed for hearing as thousands of JTOs are waiting for the promotion for the last 5 years due to cases at Chennai and Ernakulum.
Earlier Assn met DIR(HR) and requested her intervention also
