UF of Executives meets CGMT KTK:

CS Com S B Nagavi along with CS AIBSNLEA Com H Y Andeli today met Shri Raghavan CGMT Karnataka to discuss the resolution of the issues at Chickmaglur. Shri Chandramouli Sr GM Admn was also present during the discussion. We have very strongly protested the failure of Chickmaglur administration in resolving the HKS tender issue. We have requested for the immediate intervention of CGM in the matter. CGM was in full agreement with our view that the services especially the miantenence of BTSs etc., should not suffer due to the deadlock created now. We have made it clear that the administration is neither ready to resolve the issue by giving clear instructions to the field units to engage HKS on ACG 17 nor very serious to finalise the tender. In the interest of the company our field officers are continuing to maintain the services with the assurance to HKS that their payment issue will be resolved. CGM immediately spoke to Shri Sathyanarayana GM Chickmaglur and GM TR Circle Office in the matter and sought the detailed report. We have demanded an early action in the matter. The UF of Karnataka is in full support of the just demands of Chickmaglur comrades to save BSNL.

CS SNEA also informed CGM about the non preparedness of the management to face the challanges of MNP, non availablility of replacement SIMs in CSCs, no training to CSC staff and no ADs in any of the medea and papers and requested for urgent action.

Agitatiolnal Programme at Chickmaglur:

The Executives of Chickmaglur are on agitational path under the banner of United Forum of Executives. Today the executives have held lunch hour demonstration in front of GM Office Chickmaglur.

The total in-action on the part of GM Chickmaglur, the hidden personnel agenda of AGM Admn and DGMs have been spoiling the smooth functioning of the SSA. In the absence of supporting staff/HKS the field executives are put to severe pressure in extending the better services to customers. The manamgement instead of finalising the tender for HKS engagement, is forcing field officers to pay wages on ACG-17 which is not permitted by rules.

CS Com S B Nagavi along with AIBSNLEA CS Com H Y Andeli met Shri Chandramouli, Sr. GM Admn ( Since CGM is out of station) and informed about the problems of our Chickmaglur executives and the impact on the smooth working of the SSA. Sr. GM Admn immediately spoke to GM Chickmaglur and sought the status report by evening. We have also pleaded to post AOs since the shortage is causing undue pendancy.

We will also meet CGM in this regard.

Hence we have strongly protested the stand of circle office. GM Admn finally agreed to review the case once again based on the inputs given by us. (2) on forcibly obtaining of declining letters from JTOs of Hubli SSA on their officiating as SDEs quoting the reason that they will be posted to other stations contrary to the stand of the circle administration.
