ADVERSE COMMENTS BY CGM MP
On 6th March 2014, CGM MP Telecom Circle Sh N K Yadav has made some adverse comments openly against the CHQ leadership of AIGETOA in the development meeting held at Indore. DPE has ordered 30% superannuation benefit to CPSE’s executives and many CPSEs have already implemented the same but, he has also told that “even god can not extend superannuation benefit to executives working in any PSU”. He has acted as Judge and gave his ruling that pension is given only in government Deptt and PSUs don’t create superannuation funds for pension. He said that it is AIGETOA CHQ leaders who have unnecessary put up this issue and they don’t have any knowledge. He has appealed direct recruits in open meeting where all the executives of Indore region were present, to immediately expel the CHQ leaders and make some retired employee as leader of AIGETOA. He has also warned that no circle will give any privilege to AIGETOA if same leadership continues and association will be finished. We really salute the knowledge level of Hon’ble CGM MP and request him to just go through Internet and search whether the PSUs are offering the pension or not.
Referendum rule of association verification is already issued and referendum process is on. Such bad remark against AIGETOA leadership in open meeting is not at all expected from any circle head and the reasons for doing this negative publicity against this association will have to be explained by CGM MP. It is very much clear that CGM MP is singing in the same tune in which our friendly association sings to all direct recruits which gives us all reasons to believe that he is acting as virtual spokesperson of such elements. CHQ AIGETOA has sought apology against such bad remarks by the CGM for which CGM has refused. CGM MP Telecom circle has been acting vindictive against direct recruits of MP. Circle since some time back. He has taken personal interest in salary cut and followed all the SSA heads telephonically to cut the salary. Under pressure of CGM, all SSA head have cut the salary without even following the basic guidelines and rules. After long strike by AIGETOA in the month of July-Aug-2013, corporate office has issued order for online transfer of EPF and directed CGMs to purchase digital signature but the same CGM could not ensure this and no letters/DO/Verbal orders to any SSA head was ever issued as the same was beneficial to the Direct Recruits. The swiftness with which CGM acts on the BSNL CO orders for salary cut turns into lethargy when the same BSNL CO issues any order in the interest of DRs. He has issued vindictive transfer order of our All India President, helped in serving the charge sheets for raising the voice against wrongful acts in transfer and posting of direct recruits. He has also threatened direct recruits to see in the future transfer and posting.
Enough is now enough; AIGETOA MP Telecom Circle has decided for peaceful protest against such act of CGM MP. Telecom Circle. All members of Bhopal are requested to gather at Circle Office Bhopal at 1:00 pm on 07/03/2014. CGM has to apologize for his unsolicited comments against CHQ leaders, he has to refund salary immediately which has been cut without following any rules, he has to immediately order for purchase of digital signature for online EPF transfer, CGM MP will have to explain under what rule the salary has been cut based on mere absentee statement, CGM MP has to explain whether the salary of executives are being prepared on the basis of absentee statement and if so whether every month’s absentee statement for all executives right from top to bottom is being sent to DDOs, CGM MP will have to explain the motive behind bringing all the Direct recruits on road with such type of irrational salary cut, CGM MP will have to explain whether this blatant violation of rules while cutting the salary has resulted into fixing the responsibilities for the lapses, CGM MP has to explain the reasons behind not endorsing the No Work No Pay orders of BSNL CO for the Dharna Call on 6th March by our very friendly association, CGM MP will have to explain why he has interfered into internal working of any association and for whose benefit etc. The Questions are many and we will try to get all the answers.
Friends!! Now it’s high time to prove that such type of vindictive actions will not dent the membership base of AIGETOA. It’s high time to prove that even high profile spokes persons cannot win even a single membership for our adversaries. We will have to prove that all the bad objects in the path of the DRs shall be dealt like that only so that it may act as deterrent to others also.

Meeting with SEC(DOT) and HLC
On 21st Feb-2014 President Sh R P Shahu along with VP Sh Abhishek Choudhary and Sh Pransant Gaurav met Secretary DOT Sh M.F. Farooqui. The Meeting lasted for around 20 minutes. All the issues in respect of direct recruits were explained in detail and requested to consider the welfare of around 12000 executives and 20000 non-executives, directly recruited by BSNL also while taking any policy decision. Secretary (DoT) assured to look into the issues and direct the BSNL management to resolve the issues on merit. Secretary (DoT) also advised us to not to adopt the path of agitation as company is passing through a tough and critical situation. He advised to resolve the genuine grievances through amicable means. We explained to Secretary DoT that the direct recruits are covered with certain deferent sets of benefits but they are not being offered formal platform so that issues can be resolved on merit. The continued ignorance and apathy forces us to adopt the path of agitation. Secretary DOT conveyed that although he would not like to interfere in day to day working of BSNL but he will definitely convey BSNL management to take up the issues of direct recruits on priority basis.
After meeting with Secretary DOT, representatives met Addl Secretary Smt Rita teaotia who is directly looking into the various issues of BSNL. She spared sufficient time of about 40 minutes for us where each and every issue was discussed in detail. She was quite convinced with our submission on every issue and assured us to look into the issues for early resolution.
