CHQ News; Meeting with Shri Anupam Shrivatava, CMD, BSNL 0n 15.03.2018:

GS, President, AGS and Jt Sec met CMD, BSNL and held discussions on the following issues: 

a) CPSU Hierarchy implementation:

CPSU Hierarchy only will give uniform promotions avenues among various cadres/wings. Injustice happened to various cadres for years together by not giving promotions to them in the name of vacancy where as some cadres continue to get the promotions. This cannot be continued in a company. All the Executives has to get the equal opportunity to get promotions, we made our stand very clear.

CMD categorically told us that management is aware of the gravity of the situation, shortage of vacancies and court cases and CPSU Hierarchy only will be the ultimate solution to get promotions. On post based promotions, CMD further reiterated that management will not do anything which will lead to further litigations.

We requested to expedite the reply to the queries made by the BSNL Board member. We informed CMD that we are in regular touch with DIR(HR) in this regard and DIR(HR) assured to send the reply at the earliest. CMD assured that CPSU Hierarchy will be implemented at the earliest.

b) Post based promotions: In the given situation it is impossible to give promotion due to various factors. Promotion with reservation is stopped by the Courts and promotions without reservation is against the Govt/BSNL policy, CMD informed. However, BSNL examining all the options.
