20.03.2014: Revised Executive promotion policy for executives in BSNL: AIBSNLOA has been time and again advocating time bound functional promotions to the Executives (instead of the present time bound financial upgradation), as assured at the time of absorption. In February 2012, on insistence by some Executive associations (not AIBSNLOA) a committee was formed for considering ‘Introduction of CPSU cadre hierarchy in BSNL.’ Three Executive associations were given representation in the committee. In view of the fate of various earlier committees, we did not press for inclusion of AIBSNLOA in the committee. Therefore, we wrote to the committee that no decision on the issue should be taken by the committee without calling for and considering our views on the issue. The committee met only twice, on 12th July 2012 and 19th February 2013. However after discussions within the official side, the draft views of the official side were circulated on 1st July 2013. The official side had emphasized its view that "the organization hierarchy will be severely disturbed if functional promotion is given on time bound basis" and "that if the scenario for the year 2014 is projected when the next time bound upgradation is due, the no. of executives in higher pay scales (DE/DGMs) will increase whereas availability of executives at operational levels (JTO/SDE) would decline further.” AIBSNLOA refuted this and wrote to the Management that "The above contentions are not true since non-availability of JTOs is a result of failure of BSNL in recruiting JTOs to the extent of sanctioned strength and has nothing to do with the promotion policy. Increase in number of Executives with DE scale shall also not affect the operations anyway, since DEs and SDEs are performing similar functions except in administrative offices." The official side had further proposed that, “Accordingly, if we have to follow CPSU cadre hierarchy, the Executive promotion policy in BSNL requires to be completely recast. Some of the important features of such a policy would be clear assignment of marking system / weightages to different components such as performance, qualifications and experience for different levels of promotion such as from E-1 to E-2, E-2 to E-3 etc.” and that in this context, “there is dire need to review current benchmarks for financial upgradations so that these are aligned to the basic theme of performance-orientation and higher employee productivity.” Now BSNL Management has come up with the draft Revised Executive Promotion Policy replacing the present time bound financial upgradation and post-based functional promotions with "promotion of Executives to positions in the next higher grade on the basis of merit, efficiency, number of years of service in a grade and suitability for higher posts." Minimum period of service in a grade (called Eligibility Period) will be 5 years. More stringent benchmarks have been proposed and even after completion of Eligibility Period of 5 years and even after being found suitable by a CPC, promotion will be only to the extent of posts in higher grade to be decided on the basis of the recommendations of the consultant engaged by BSNL to prepare Revival Plan & HR Plan for BSNL. This will in effect mean that there will be no time bound promotion/upgradation and getting a post based promotion will become a more difficult probability. All members and other Executives are requested to go through the draft and convey their response to: within a week.  Read the draft

Now, asking them to appear in the examination after they have completed JTO Phase I training and have worked for so many years as JTOs, is neither fair nor justified.
