Merger of Mobile Operation and Developing Wing:

The long standing demand of SNEA(I) is finally being implemented to merge the Development wing of all SSAs with the Operation wing and all the executives have to report to the respective DE/DGMs of operation wing and they will continue to do the work of survey/installation in their control. Three years back we have strongly opposed this division which has resulted in duplicate estabilishments and confusion in the works at SSA level. However it was forced on us just to divide the staff to two GMs exclusively posted for Development and Operatioaons seperately. We are thankful to the Shri G V Reddy GM NWP-CM for repeatedly moving a positive note on this issue. This will create more co-ordination and reduction in expenditure like vehicle/TA bills since for the same work sometimes both teams were to move wherever lack of co-ordination was existing and sometimes due to the ego of controlling officers. We also extend our thanks to Shri P Raghavan CGM Karnataka for finally agreeing to the just and need of the hour proposal in this regard. We appeal to our comrades to be more realistic and do all possible efforts to reduce expenditure, reduce duplicate establishment and be ready for re-organising the staff for better utilisation to save BSNL money....

CHQ Message

Struggle is the only way to protect our jobs and beloved Company. That is what our history of consistent struggle under the banner of JAC clearly brings out.

Let us quickly recapitulate how continuous struggle has protected our beloved Company from being sold and in the process securing our jobs so far.


  1. ·      Persistent efforts to sell the equity of the Company have been defeated. When the Company was at its peak of glory in terms of annual profits crossing 10,000 crores, determined efforts of the government in collusion with vested interests from industry to acquire huge equity of the Company as its strategic partner have been defeated lock, stock and barrel. As a consequence today, we have great pride that Company’s equity was not allowed to be diluted through struggle and that government has 100% holding in the Company.
  2. ·      Precious resource of the Company “Copper” which almost every minister starting from Late Sh. Pramod Mahajan tried desperately to sell to private Companies stands protected through struggle alone. Present MOC&IT has already made up his mind to kill us by incorporating   dubious and well clad provisions in “NTP 11” to allow sale of copper which is our most invaluable resource that we cannot spare.
  3. ·      How we could succeed to procure 22 m GSM equipment in 2007 when then MOC&IT suddenly decided to scrap entire order for procurement of 45.5 m GSM lines. Had we struggled a little bit more, entire size of the tender to procure 45.5 m GSM lines could have saved easily.
  4. ·      How we forced the Union Cabinet to take a very positive decision on revision of our IDA pension consequent upon implementation of 2nd PRC for executives and wage revision for non executives.
  5. ·      How are we nearing success in forcing the government to refund obsolete BWA spectrum charges valued approximately at Rs 7000 crores in respect of Circles where we have not rolled out Wimax operations? Any let up on our part will be suicidal since the government is not easily going to part away with such huge money.
  6. ·      How we have succeeded in settling the issue of payment of pension contribution by BSNL to DOT on actual basic instead of maximum of IDA Scale thus saving annually about Rs 500 crores.
  7. ·      How we have forced the government to pay us Rs 6000 crores USO fund for three years from 2008 to 11 when the government decided to stop payment of any subsidy from USO fund to us. Today the government is yet again considering continuing annual USO subsidy of Rs 2000 crores.
  8. ·      How issue of ITS absorption has got a real head start because of our sustained pressure and to take this issue to its logical conclusion continuance of sustained effort is absolutely necessary.
  9. ·      How tenders for procurement of 14.37 m GSM, Cables, optical fibres cables, telephone instruments, MLLN and BB modems etc. etc have reached conclusive stages after our protracted struggle.
  10. ·      How are we nearing success in forcing the government to take a definite stand and action under provisions of 3G licensing against Bharti, Vodafone and Idea for their violation of 3G policy which is adversely affecting only BSNL which has paid Rs 10000 crores Pan India 3G spectrum charges, 40-50% more than these operators. If we remain firm, there is strong possibility for us to be treated at par with these operators and get refund of about Rs 4000 to 5000 crores 3G spectrum charges.


Comrades, politicians, bureaucrats, vested interests and a thoroughly unprofessional, inefficient and corrupt BSNL management would have eaten up our jobs and mortgaged the Company to vested interests had we not remained alert and consistently struggled from the platform of JAC.


Let us not be carried away by deduction of one, two or three day’s wages for going on strike since getting bogged down in that totally irrelevant and counterproductive debate would mean ending up in losing our jobs altogether. Let us also keep at the back of our minds that we have lost already our bonus and partially medical reimbursements and LTC. Any kind of let up on our part to struggle will end up in our losing the jobs, not one/two/three day wages.
