[27.02.2017]Wage revision from 01.01.2017 – Be prepared for struggle to get justice.

The 3rd PRC has already submitted it’s report to the government. The government in turn, has referred it to the secretaries of the concerned departments. It is reliably learnt that, according to the terms and conditions set by the 3rd PRC, it will be very difficult for BSNL employees to get wage revision. Hence, the entire Non-Executives and Executives have to gear up for struggle, for getting justice in the next wage revision.    


[27.02.2017]Four private operators and one government operator will be ideal – says J.S. Deepak, Secretary, DoT.

Due to the entry of Reliance Jio, mergers of private telecom companies have started taking place. Vodafone is set to merger with Idea Cellular. Telenor is being taken over by Airtel. Already the process for merger of Reliance Communications (Anil Ambani’s) and Aircel has started. Now, indications are there, for the merger of Tata Teleservices and MTS with Reliance Communications. Under these circumstances, J.S. Deepak, Secretary, DoT, has told the PTI that four private operators and one government operator will be ideal for the Indian Telecommunications sector.


[27.02.2017]Notification issued to the Secretary, DoT, for holding March to Raj Bhawan and Collectorate / DM Office.

On behalf of the unions and associations of BSNL, notice was issued today to the Secretary, DoT, for conducting March to Raj Bhawan and Collectorate / DM Office on 9th March, 2017, on the following issues.


(a) Opposing Niti Aayog's recommendation on disinvestment / strategic sale of BSNL.

      (As is evident from PMO ID No.4542267/PMO/2016-ES.I dated 30th December, 2016.)


(b) Opposing formation of Subsidiary Tower Company.


(c) Demanding allotment of 4G spectrum, free of cost, to BSNL.


(d) Opposing favours being extended to Reliance Jio.


CHQ calls upon all the circle and district secretaries to immediately take steps in coordination with the other unions and associations, for conducting the programme massively throughout the country. Banners and placards should be prepared well in advance, for prominently displaying in the rallies, to attract the attention of the general public, on the above mentioned four important issues.<<view letter>>


Start the preparations immediately.

 Conduct the programme massively.


[25.02.2017]Delay in the Document Verification of the selected DR JE candidates.

Our leaders from various circles are contacting the CHQ, and are complaining that the process of Document Verification for the selected DR JEs, has not started in their circles. The matter has already been taken to the notice of the GM (Rectt.) of BSNL Corporate Office. In this regard, CHQ wishes to inform that as per the schedule of the DR JE Recruitment, 15th March, 2017 is the last date for Document Verification. Comrades need not get tensed, since sufficient time is there. BSNLEU has already demanded that this time limit should be extended beyond 15th March, if the process of Document Verification is not completed within that date. The Corporate Office has responded positively for this.


[25.02.2017]“Get out of my country”.


Srinivas Kuchibhotla, an engineer from Hyderabad, has been shot dead in Kansas, United States, by an American. Adam Purinton, the 51 year old ex US navy man, shouted “Get out of my country”, while shooting Srinivas Kuchibhotla. American’s think that foreign professionals, including Indians, are the reason behind the rising unemployment in that country. Similar incidents are taking place in many developed countries, including in Europe and Australia. We share the grief of the family of Srinivas. At the same time, we wish to say that all these incidents only prove that capitalism is unable to tackle the menace of unemployment. While wealth is getting concentrated in the hands of a few, millions and millions of people continue to suffer due to unemployment and poverty.

[10.02.2017]Make the March to Parliament by casual & contract workers a success.

The All India Conference of BSNLEU, recently held at Chennai, has decided that the "March to Parliament" by the casual and contract workers, to be held on 22-02-2017, should be made a success. CHQ has already written to the BSNLEU circle unions nearer to Delhi, to mobilise the maximum number of regular employees from their circles, and make the Parliament March a grand success. Once again the CHQ requests those circle unions to mobilise the maximum number of regular employees for the programme.



[09.02.2017]BSNLEU writes to the Director(HR), demanding immediate implementation of the order of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, on recovery of excess payments.
The Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, has ordered that recovery of payments, mistakenly made by the employer, in excess of their entitlement, should not be recovered. The government, vide DoP&T  letter cited under reference, has implemented the judgement.
 However, BSNL has not implemented this order of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, on the plea that the DoP&T letter has not been endorsed to it, by the DoT. On the other hand the DoT has told our Union that the BSNL, on it's own, can implement the order of the Hon'ble Supreme Court. Hence, BSNLEU has written to the Director(HR), demanding immediate implementation of the order of the Hon'ble Supreme Court.<<< view letter>>>


[09.02.2017]BSNL's Rs.1,000 crore  contract awarded to L&T and others to provide 35,000 Wi Fi hotspots.

According to media reports, BSNL has awarded a Rs.1,000 crore contract, to a group of companies, including L&T, for providing 35,000 Wi Fi hotspots. Elitecore, UTStarcom and Cisco are the other companies.  BSNL expects to operationalise all these hotspots by March,2018. BSNL will be offering data services through these hotpots, at a faster speed than 4G technology.

[09.02.2017]Achievement of mobile target in the month of January,2017.

There were some errors in the website updating made yesterday, with regards to the mobile targets achieved in the month of January 2017. The updating stands corrected and the error is regretted.


[08.02.2017]Hearty congrats to all !  BSNL once again achieves the target of adding more than 20 lakh mobile customers a month. 
BSNLEU heartily congratulates the entire staff and the Management of BSNL, for once again achieving the target of adding more than 20 lakh mobile customers in a single month. In January 2017, BSNL has added 20, 63,287 new mobile customers. UP(East) circle has come first by adding 2,31,220 customers and Rajasthan circle has come second by adding 1,83,739 customers. Andhra Pradesh circle has come third by adding 1,77,294 customers. BSNLEU heartily congratulates these circles, and also all other circles which have achieved their targets. 


It is worth mentioning that BSNL is able to make this achievement, even at a time when serious challenges are posed by Reliance Jio. It is sure that the new tariffs introduced by BSNL, offering unlimited voice calls, and also 1 GB data for RS. 36, etc., have played a big role in this achievement. All unions and associations have called on the Non-Executives and Executives to work one hour extra, from 10-02-2017 to 31-03-2017. We should make it a point that campaigns like melas, roadshows, etc., should be launched aggressively during this period, so as to give the widest publicity to our new tariffs.  This will help us in a big way to increase our company's revenue as well as customers.



[08.02.2017]Reliance Jio is killing competition -  Airtel complains to the Competition Commission of India.
Reliance Jio continues to offer free voice calls and data, even after completion of the 90 day period, stipulated for Promotional Offers. Still, the complaint raised by Airtel, with the TRAI in this connection, is rejected. Now, Airtel has lodged a complaint with the Competition Commission of India(CCI), saying that Reliance Jio is killing competition. Airtel has stated that no other telecom company in India or abroad, is offering services free of cost, or any free unlimited voice calling. Reliance Jio is doing it, and it's goal is to eliminate competition, stated Airtel in the complaint. It has also stated that once Reliance Jio gets higher market share, then it will increase the tariff. Let us wait and see, what the CCI is going to do
