Mysore Issue:

CS Com S B Nagavi along with DS CO Com Chidambar met CGMT Karnataka Shri P Raghavan and discussed various issues including issues relating to Mysore SSA. We have made our position very clear and how we are subjected to biased action followed by false statements to tarnish the image of our Circle President in the meeting held at PGM's chamber on 27-11-2012.

Com D S Mahendrakar is no more..

Com D S Mahendrakar SDE STR Gadag expired today morning at KLE Hospital Belgaum. He was suffering from kidney problem and unfortunately the transplanted kidney also did not adjust to his body. He had even struggled with this ailment for years. He was very active member of Hubli SSA and in our STR wing.He has worked in various capacities in our circle body. He has left behind his Wife Smt Jayashree, Sr TOA in BSNL and a daughter Kum Shubhashre. It is a great loss to the trade Union movement and particularly to SNEA Karnataka. We express our deep condolances and pray God for his soul to be in peace. May God give strength to his family members to overcome the shocking incident.



Baseless Coments:

We are constrained to respond to the most unwarranted postings in the web site of other executive association; though we wanted to neglect it, for the information of our members we are here with publishing for circulation of the letter written by Sr. GM Mysore vide letter No. G-45/SNEA/2012-13 dtd 25-10-2012 addressed to Sr GM Admn Circle office Bangalore in response to our issues pending to be settled at Mysore; which has been procured under RTI by CS SNEA vide application dated 8-11-2012 strictly for the information of our members.  

We are equally concerned with the maintenance and development of SSA/BSNL. It is our members who are in the field and are instrumental in these achievements. We have never confronted on these issues with the Mysore Administration. In fact circle organisation has already placed it on record when we held the meeting with CGMT..

What is most concerned is the biased treatment we are subjected to and are fighting on these issues; which ultimately will pave the way for justice, harmony and further development. We are prepared for an impartial enquiry into the issues raised by us.

A man of ordinary prudence will never believe in a lie that if GMs are good if they oblige us for our whims and fancies. For what we are agitating is clear and open to everybody. SNEA has not forgotten that person speaking now; why did not join as DE Halasur (because it is a field work). When this single demand was considered; what happened to the remaining 6 demands raised there and then?

The issues raised by us are exhaustive and explain which are baseless and which are not; once the following letters are studied.

For the letter of Sr GM Mysore click here..
For the letter of CS SNEA KTK click here..

We believe in struggle against injustice and struggled at Bangalore also when 6 SDEs were relieved in the middle of the acadamic year at the provocation of the other association. We need not be preached by others which is totally uncalled for.

Shri Jayaram GM Mysore and Shri Chandramouli Sr GM Admn and HR were also present. CS has made our issues very clear as to how we were harrassed by the biased actions of Mysore administration and appealed for justice and restoration of condusive atmosphere by the management and come up for fair and frank discussion and just decisions. CGM advised certain actions to be taken immediately. However the talks were inconclusive. From our side we have demanded for fact finding committe to assertain the true facts of on the issues raised by us and also on the report given by GM Mysore.. For our letter click here.

new26-11-2012 :

CS Com S B Nagavi, AGS Com Pandurang Naik and Circle Org Secretary Com K N Muralidhar have visited Mysore and addressed the emergency general body meeting. Circle Organisation took stock of the on going issues with regard to the biased actions of GM Mysore on SNEA members. Circle Organisation assured full support on the struggle of Mysore comrades. Circle President Com B S Venkateshmurthy and DS Mysore Com Vishakantamurthy also addressed and appraised the developments to the members. The house decided to any sort of organisational action to settle the issues and stop injustice and biased actions of GM Mysore.

On 23rd CS along with Com Huliraja OS BGTD met in charge CGMT Karnataka Shri Shubhendu Gosh and appraised the issues relating to Mysore and reluctance and refusal of GM Mysore to discuss the issues with SNEA and even with the circle secretary. CGMT assurred to look into the matter.


new21-11-2012 :

CS has been to Delhi on 18th Nov 2012 and is back to Bangalore on 20th Nov 2012. CS attended the crucial court case regarding the SLP filed on quashing of Sr list 6 and 7 on 19th. Held discussions with GS and CHQ President on 20th. Today CS, AGS and COS will be visiting to Mysore to attend the GB of Mysore.

new16-11-2012 :

2nd day of Agitation By Mysore Comrades:

CS yesterday met CGMT Karnataka and also today again met Sr GM Admin on his telephonic call along with DS CO Com Chadambaram. Both CGMT and GM have told that; "already GM Mysore has been advised to discuss and settle the matter with SNEA".

But GM Mysore is continuing to be adamant on his part. Not only he is biased to SNEA but has reported many issues of having no truths or to tarnish his predecessor. According to him " Even though Mysore SSA is having nearly 600 TMs qualified and certified by our own ISO certified RTTC, not even 5% of the TMs can handle cable related issues independantly. Similar is the case with CDOT/OCB switch and present day transmission systems" and then " The Mysore system is precariously placed. MIS figures are inflated to conceal the large scale closures of land line and broad ban connections ( 13000 landlines aqnd 2500 broadband connections)" and so on and so forth.

Thus he is making false and insulting statements even in writing on the executives and non executives. This cannot be tolerated by the efficient and harworking fraternity of Mysore.

So we have requested circle administration to intervene and resolve the issue. All DSs to be in alert to as to react properly if the apprach of Mysore continues like this.


new15-11-2012 :

Comrades of Mysore on Agitational Path:

The genuine issues raised by SNEA Mysore have not been resolved. Dispite the sincere efforts of DS Mysore, several times, GM refused meetings. GM Mysore has in addition initiated retaliatory actions on SNEA and transferred Circle President of SNEA with vindictive attitude. GM Mysore is proved to be totally biased in his approach. So comrades of SNEA Mysore will be on Dharna today in front of GM Office Mysore. Circle Organisation fully supports the organisational programme of Mysore comrades.

All SNEA activists to please note and act...


Relieving of SDEs from Raichur who are under transfer orders..

CS met Sr GM Admin Shri R Chandramouli and discussed the above issue in detail. We have also requested GM admn to consider the request transfer of Com G Venkateshwarlu JTO from Belgaum to Raichur who has submitted his application. We have also learnt that one SDE from Mysore is willing to take transfer to Raichur. And as revealed from the working strenght of Raichur SSA, with these arrangements the SDEs in waiting can be relieved. GM was also of the view that he will issue these incoming transfer orders to Raichur and then take action to relieve the 6 SDEs outgoing from Raichur immediately.


CS writes to Shri P Raghavan CGMT Karnataka for his intervention to ensure the forwarding of the rule 8 transfer applications of DKTD JTOs as the DKTD administration has taken a wrong decision of not to forward the applications and they are voilating the guidlines of transfer policy as well as circle office instructions. For CS letter click here. For circle office guidlines on rule 8 transfer applications click here. For denial letter of DKTD click here..

A word of THANKS to Kolar Administration.

We are extremely thankful to GM Shri Sudhakar ( GM TMK in charge of Kolar) and DGM Smt Nirmala for considering the long pending genuine demands of our Kolar SNEA members. The administration has considered the request transfer of Com Krishnamurthy SDE from Bagepalli to Chickballapur, Com Narain Nandakumar DS SNEA from Mulbagil to Kolar, Com Deepthi from Kolar to Siddlagatta. Even while alloting postings to the SDEs on incoming transfers the undue favour being shown earlier to a particular group is curtrailed and considerations are done in a transparant way without any injustice. Of course credit also should go to our young leaders like Com Nazeer, Com Narain and our District President Com Ramakrishna and all young activists of SNEA who are vigilant and persuaded the issues.

(2) Instructions to be issued to the field units for forwarding the rule 8 applications case of DKTD.. We have brought to the notice of GM that the instructions already issued do not clear this aspect and hence need a clarification. GM issued instructions to issue one more letter in this regard.

BGTD News.....

SNEA BGTD branch yesterday met Shri Shubhendu Ghosh PGM BGTD and introduced the new office bearers and presented the list of them. Com S B Nagavi, CS Com M S Hiremugadur ACS HQ, Com Ranganayakulu, President BGTD, Com B Ramesh, District Secretary BGTD, Com Virupakshaiah Vice President, Com M Huliraja AS CTO, Com H S Dyavegouda ADS, Com K Murulidhar, Treasurer, Com Ganeshan CEC memaber, Com Prakash BS Koramangala have attended the meeting from our side. Shri Parihar GM, Shri Krishnamurthy DGM Admn were also presnet. We have held elaborate discussion on various issues including the biased action of some of the field unit officers with malafide intentions, retention of 6 SDEs being relieved in the middle of the academnic year etc., The management expressed to look into every issue with the open mind and without any bias and definately adopt proper humane approach and resolve them. It was also decided to hold a meeting again on 23rd July 2012 to settle the issue of 6 transfers. We have informed the management that the issues need to approached comprehensivly and any decision taken in part will lead to discrimination and industrial unrest and will be untolerable.


However, members of BGTD are advised to be on red alert and be prepared for the needful organisation action in the event of any deadlock in resolving the issues as decided in our district conference of BGTD held on 14th July 2012...


CS along with ACS HQ Com Hiremugadur met CGMT Karnataka Shri P Raghavan on 19th July and held detailed discussion on the issue of retaining 6 SDEs under transfer till March 2013. CGMT is in full agreement with the contents raised in our letter in this connection. But at this juncture he is not ready to interfere in the issue. This position of the CGMT was strongly protested by us.Hence comrades of BGTD have to take appropriate decesion immediately to bring proper pressure on the management to avoid the disturbance in the middle of the year.

GM on discussing further in case of relieving of SDEs from Raichur and Gulbarga informed that the working strength of these SSAs have been thoroughly checked in these SSAs and it is found that the executives distribution ( JTO+SDE ) as on date is equal or more on far with other SSAs and hence the SSA GMs have been advised to relieve all the transferred officers immediatley without waiting for the substitutes. Hence retaining them further is discrimination. The calculation details are also furnished to us.We will further persuade the cases.

Is BSNL appointed 150 new Executives in BGTD? Then where these 150 executives came from?


The legal battle waged by Com W Sheshagiri Rao and Com G L Jogi to enable the executives in BSNL to take an informed choice at the time of absorption is fresh in our memory. The benefits (an order of point to point fixation of IDA scales, proper elevated scales for executives and of course the Time Bound Promotions every 4-5 years) the executives derived out of that glorious struggle at the time of absorption till now are well known.

 The stand taken by some association to blindly going for absorption on the mere promise of Rs.2000 adhoc payment, dangerous consequences that the executives faced, had the offer been accepted is also fresh in our memory.

 The reasons for re-calling this very significant incident of the year 2000-2002 is a false propaganda that is being spread by certain quarters from BGTD.

 The propaganda says that 150 members have joined the association along with some senior comrades. One such senior comrade is elected as their office bearer. The informed members and delegates of SNEA had defeated this leader’s attempt to occupy the important posts of our organization time and again.

 We in SNEA adore democratic and transparent functioning, to be in the fore front in the fight to protect the interest of its members. 

We in SNEA abhor opportunist elements, functioning and keep away the manipulators and power mongers.

 Our membership in BGTD is in tact, rumors what so ever spread need not be believed. In fact we have improved our membership position not only in BGTD but also in all other SSAs like Kolar, Davangere, Chickmaglur, Hubli, Mobile services Bangalore, Circle office Bangalore etc.

Organizations are to be build by honest and dedicated works. The issue of notional fixation of 2004 LDCE candidates was taken by Karnataka SNEA, fought in the court and succeeded. Executives have got the benefit which took two years of legal fight. Success has many fathers and the leaders of other association who kept mum all these years are now promising the members that they would get the benefits to the left out candidates.

Every one must know that transfers of SDEs with less than 2 years service was not considered. It is the present SNEA circle body which fought the issue with the management and many executives for the last 3 years are getting this benefit.

 At one point of time JTOs gone on long stay transfer were struggling to get back to their places even after 3-4 years. It is SNEA which fought for their transfers and successful at the end. This truth is known to the affected JTOs.

 Wherever injustice is there, we from our side fully involve in the issue and fight for the them to whatever extent it is possible by us. The recent incident of Kolar is mirror before you. The management under the pressure of so called saviors of BSNL projected an innocent but very efficient JTO as riotous figure but miserably failed to prove their false allegations and the court has declared it as illegal. This case was followed up and fought by the full support of SNEA.

 The 33 to 35 rule 8 and the periodical request transfers of JTOs were the persuasions of this organization.

 Look at the issues of STR comrades. SNEA stood by the difficulties faced by the comrades working in very difficult stations in different parts of Karnataka and waiting for transfers for 4-5 years. SNEA stood for the cause of these comrades and successful in getting these requests are considered despite the dirty politics.

 Yes our utmost priority is the BSNL services. It is SNEA in Karnataka which has taken up many issues whether it is the failures of equipment or services in GSM, MPLS, NOC and CDR issues, the shortage of store materials and equally supported all the right decisions of the management.

 Even take the example recent revenue loss of Rs.3.5 crores. We did not hesitate to take up the issue with every authority like CGM, PGM, and CMD. On 30-5-2012 SNEA leadership has personally met CMD BSNL at Bangalore and brought the issue to his notice. CMD in fact appreciated the interest of this association in particular for our very serious concern in the matter.

 For every common cause we have always joined hands with our counter parts giving no room for any politics. People should not forget that being opportunistic will de-stabilse the strongly built unity and trust.

 It is on principles of fight for right cause that our association has grown to this towering height with very strong foundations. No body can snatch its committed members.

 We shall be happy if these friends from other association desist from making false claims and incorrect propaganda.  

Executives in general and from SNEA in particular are well informed, knowledgeable and capable of dismissing these false propaganda with the contempt that it deserves. 




SNEA Karnataka Circle extends best wishes for all comrades retiring today on superannuation, for a happy and peaceful retired life. Comrade you are starting a new journey and exceptional chapter of your life. May your days be filled with elation and triumph. We thank you for your dedication & congratulate you on your retirement.

Meeting with CMD BSNL:

SNEA Karnataka under the leadership of CS Com S B Nagavi, along with BGTD DS Com M S Hiremugadur and President Com Ranganayakulu met CMD BSNL respected Shri

R K Upadhyaya,

yesterday in Ashoka Hotel after Parlimentary Committe Meeting. CS in addition to discussing staff matters like requesting for additional justified DE vacancies, generalising the notional fixation to LDCE candidates, in detail discussed on the loss created due to the artificial shortage of CTOPUP and recharge products in Bangalore TD by the wrong handling of the Franchesee issue. Though the issue is resolved temperorily it may crop in again. We have as per the decesion taken by SNEA BGTD proposed that a parallel channel of suppply be made available to avoid such shortages in future. The CTOP UP can be extended to all our field executives who are the front end managers, facing the customers and also to all other executives who are willing to sell the CTOUP products. CGM Shri P Raghavan and PGM Shri Shjri Shubhendhu Ghosh also appriciated our proposal.

We are thankful to CGM and Sr GM Admn for having arranged the meeting even in the busy schedules of the CMD.


Revenue of Rs 3.5 Crores !!!

Today morning after confirming of the stalemate between BGTD management and Franchisees, CS has written to Shri R K Upadyaya CMD BSNL through email at 1130 hours. In the afternoon CGMT Karnataka held meeting with the Franchisee and then directed them to meet PGM. Today evening the BGTD administration has agreed to accept cheques and we are expecting the normal business in Bangalore from tomorrow. For the copy of the email click here.. Now the big question before us is WHO is responsible for the loss of 10 days to the tune of Rs. 3.5 crores. It is unfortunate that this decesion would have been taken 10 days before by calling the meeting of the business parteners.

The shortage of Re-charage/ CTOP UP in Bangalore draws the media attention. Click here for the report in the Kannadaprabha Daily today. CS after seeing the report immediately visited PGM Office and met Sh Shubhendhu Ghosh PGM BGTD and discussed on the seriousness of the issue. PGM BGTD says that he is ready to accept the cheques of the prompt Francheses whose cheques have not bounced. He has also directed concerned DGM to immediately call for the meeting of the Francheses to convey them the management decesion . DS BGTD Com Hiremugadur and DP BGTD Com Ranganayakulu were also present in the meeting.

The JTOs under transfer orders were relieved by the circle administration directly today. This issue was continuously pursed by SNEA and finally the relieving has been ensured. For order click here.. However the JTOs of Hassan SSA are not covered in this order. We will strongly protest on the stand of the administration. The District Branch may also pursue at SSA level as suffcient executives have been posted to Hassan SSA.

Approximately revenue of Rs 2.2 Crores loss to Karnataka Circle !!!!

Who is responsible for this loss???

The Employees, Executives or the management ???

The average revenue collection from the CTOP Up segment in Bangalore was an average of Rs.33 lakhs per day.

From 17th May 2012 to 24th May 2012 the revenue collection from the CTOP Up and Recharge segment has become nearly big ZERO in BGTD.

This is due to a sudden change in the policy decesion of the BGTD management. Normally on cheques of the francheses the CTOP Up was released but due cheque bouncing of one or two case, the BGTD managment enforced all the francheses to buy these topups by paying cash/DD. But this condition generally being imposed on to the defaulted agency, it has been generalised to all; aggrevating the situtation by deliberately imposing the instructions on the trusted and reliable business parterners also.

CS Com S B Nagavi had contacted respected PGM BGTD Sh Shubhendu Ghosh on 18th May 2012 over phone. On 19th May 2012 an email was also sent to GS with copy to PGM/CGMT Bangalore also. CS has also contacted respected CGMT Karnataka Sh P Raghavan over phone on 19th May 2012. Again on 23rd May 2012 CS has personally met CGMT Sh P Raghavan and appraised of non resolving the issue. Today CS has met Sh Koundinyan Sr GM in charge of S&M, Sh Chandramouli Sr GM HR and Admn ( Both CGM/PGM are out of HQ) and tried to assertain the business conditions anything that have been changed. Even as on today the 24th May 2012 issue remains unresolved.

By invoking sub para 'f' of para 'K' of 2009 Franchisee sales and Distribution Policy now; sudden policy change has been imposed. When prevailing proceedure was smooth for all these years- this sudden change has created a scarcity of CTOP UP and Recharges of BSNL products in Bangalore.

While it is our sincere effort with the managment; some senior officers are trying to create an impression that SNEA is in favour of selling BSNL products free of cost.

SNEA Karnatka is pursuing the issue very seriously not to loose our revenue wihi is in the pipeline; in the interest of the company and for our bread and butter. Com G L Jogi our President has also sent a mail in this regard to all concerned.

For the mail extracts linked below gives you the stand of this association.

If issue doesn't get resolved, we may have to start organisational action in addition to writing to MOC/CMD BSNL to highlight the non-interest of the Karnataka BSNL managment in BSNL business segments....

United Forum of Executives;

Com S B nagavi CS and Com Chidambar DS CO along with Com H Y Andeli CS AIBSNLEA and Com Mahantesh Banagar ACS AIBSNLEA today met Sh P Raghavan, CGMT Karnataka to discuss on the relieving of the SDEs who are on transfer orders. We have focussed on the issue of none being relieved from Raichur. We have also served a detailed letter on the iussue. For letter click here. Later we have also met Sr GM HR and Admn Sh R Chandramouli and submitted our stand very clearly as CGM has suggested to discuss with him in detail. If these relieving are delayed/not effected, it will totally de-stabilise the agreed understanding of the associations with the managment and the proceedure being followed for years. Hence we may have to step in to organisational actions. Members are requested to be on alert in this regard.



Com A G Kulkarni SDE STR Hubli has donated Rs.10,000-00 and Com A Krishnamurthy SDE Civil has donated Rs.5,000-00 towards circle builiding fund. Circle Organisation is thankful to both the members for the generous donation..


We are thankful to Shri P Raghavan, CGMT, Sh R Chandramouli Sr GM HR and the circle administration for conisdering the postings and modifications of all the genunine cases viz deputation of Com T Bhaskarmurthy, retention of Com Tirumalesh SDE BGTD on medical grounds, re-modification of posting of Com Navalgi to BGTD who has been returned from NE circle, deputation of Com Lingappagowda SDE from Madikeri to DKTD and clearing the long pending TBU case of Com Parande SDE Bijapur, Com N L Bhosle Retired SDE BM (Ex Circle President SNEA KTK).

We are pursing for the relieving of the JTOs who are under treansfer orders to various SSAs. GM Admn and HR has spoken to many GMs of concerned SSAs in this regard. We will further pursue the cases.

STR Transfer News:

We are thankful to CGMT STR and GMM STR Bangalore Shri Mishra for having considered all our request transfers and officiating arrangement implimentaions viz Com Ramachandra DE CKG relieved to Kerala on transfer, Com A G Kulkarni SDE Gokak relieved to Hubli on transfer to join spouze, Com Vijaykumar SDE Hassan relieved to Chickmaglur to join as DE Offtg Chikmaglur, Com P G Joshi SDE Raichur relieved to join as DE Offtg Tumkur.

However, the transfer of Com Rajendra SDE Bidar who is in tenure station is yet to be considered by the STR administration. SNEA will further pursue the matter vigourously with CGM office by visiting to Chennai.

Still STR administration has to resolve the issue of setting right the acute shortages in STR outdoor maintenance in various SSAs. This issue also will be taken up with the CGMT STR Chennai shortly.


JTO to SDE Officiating

The much awaited JTO to SDE Officiating orders issued for 250 vacancies today. We are pressurising for issue of officiating to the left out vacancies also. It depends on the receipt of CRs/SRs as already called for by the circle office published by us on 10th May 2012. It may also be noted that we have very strongly opposed the disturbances done in the last spell, that the JTOs of BGTD were posted out of BGTD. This issue was very carefully pursued by the circle organisation and was successful in convincing the circle administration; that it cannot be treated as declining of the promotiuon. We are very much greatful to Sh P Raghavan, CGMT Karnataka and Sh R Chandramouli Sr GM HR & Admn for having considered our presentation in the said issue. We are also thankaful for the comrades of BGTD for the solidarity support shown by them in this regard otherwise a struggle was inevitable this time. We congratulate the comrades of BGTD.

Important Message on the judgement in OA No.227/2009 in Hon CAT Bangalore ( 1966 case)..

It is a case where the seniority of the 1966 qualified JTOs who PROMOTED AS SDEs in 1998 is getting disturbed and the senior JTOs who are non qualified and promoted in 2000 as SDEs under 1996 RRs will stand seniors to these qualified candidates according to the said judgement.

Both the associations SNEA and AIBSNLEA have now filed the Writ Petition ( Appeal) challanging the said order to ensure the seniority of the qualified candidates over the non qualified. This is an issue where serious legal fight is inevitable. Though our association has already spent huge amount on the legal expenses in CAT and now in Hon High Court; we may be in difficulty if the affected SDEs do not contribute for the legal case. We therefore request all the concerned SDE/DEs to contribute Rs.2000/- each so as to further proceed in the case effectively.
