Our Beloved CS Com. Ramesh interview with Sneha TV regarding BSNL issues



GS writes to Shri Anupam Shrivatava, CMD/BSNL:

Immediate action to implement BSNL Executives Promotion Policy & Recruitment Rules-2017 (CPSU Cadre Hierarchy) w.e.f. 01.07.2018 which is approved by the BSNL Board on 28.05.2018, to address the huge disparity in promotions and bringing complete Uniformity and Parity in promotions in SDE/AO and AGM/CAO equivalent cadres of all the streams. This is also part of terms and condition for absorption in BSNL. Delay in implementation leading to wide spread resentment among thousands of Executives waiting for promotion:

One of the main objective of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy to end litigations and smooth career progression is partially defeated by the recent post based promotions.

Through post based promotions, the main objective of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy, Parity and Uniformity in promotions among various streams for the equivalent cadres could not achieve, rather more disparity, anomalies, disputes and court cases created now. If vacancy based promotion is continued, no one can ensure Parity or even timely promotion in different cadres.

The status of promotions in different cadres after the recent promotion orders is given below to understand the huge disparity:





JTO(Arch) to SDE





Executives waiting for promotion from

















SDE(C) to EE(C)

SDE(E) to EE(E)


SDE(T) to DE(T)


Executives waiting for promotion from











1. More than 2,000 SDEs in list 8 who are very seniors, most of them are promoted in 2004/2005 as SDEs and completed 14 years of service are waiting for promotion. Their juniors are promoted on 29.06.2018 which created wide spread resentment among the seniors. Another 1,200 SDEs are there, promoted in 2007/2008 also.

2. More than 9,500 JTOs from 1999 rect year to 2013 rect year are waiting for promotion. The promotion for about 4,500 JTOs upto 2007 rect year is in the final stage. Still about 5,000 JTOs, from 2008 rect onwards are waiting for promotion to bring-in parity.  

3. Similarly about 800 SDEs (400 each in Civil and Electrical), promoted from 1998 onwards waiting for promotion as EE.

4. AOs of 2008 batch numbering about 900 are waiting for promotion.

5. More than 6,500 SDEs promoted in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013 are waiting for promotion to Sr SDE grade.

6. More than 1500 AOs promoted is 2009 & 2015, waiting for promotion to Sr AO grade.

7. The situation in some small stream like Arch is precarious; JTO(Arch) joined in 1988 is still waiting for first promotion. Stagnation prevails in other small streams like CSS, PA/PS, TF, Arch, Official Language etc.

Bringing Parity in promotions in SDE and AGM equivalent cadres for all the streams were demanded by SNEA vide letter No: SNEA/CHQ/CMD/2015-18/95 Dated 04th July, 2018, through upgradation of posts as done in the case of JAO to AO and SDE to DE cadres. However, this demand is not accepted by the management.

Any delay in implementation of the new promotion policy will be demoralizing and detrimental to the overall interest of the Executives. If the notification and date of effect is delayed beyond 01.07.2018, all will miss their opportunity to get the promotion on 01.07.2018, at par with their juniors in other streams who got the promotion on 29.06.2018. Evenif the promotions are given one day later than 01.07.2018, all such Executives will become juniors and subordinate to the Executives already promoted on or before 01.07.2018 as per CPSU Cadre Hierarchy provisions. Consequently, it will also affect the future promotions of thousands of Executives who got promotions recently.

In view of the above submissions, it is requested to take appropriate actions to bring parity and uniformity in promotions in all the wings for all the equivalent cadres, ie. Telecom/ Finance/ Civil/ Elect/ TF/ Arch/ CSS/ PA/ PS etc as a permanent measure by implementing the Uniform Time Bound Functional Promotion Policy (CPSU Cadre Hierarchy) immediately, w.e.f. 01.07.2018.

SNEA Telangana wishes you a "Happy Diwali" to all the BSNL employeess

Smiley face


SNEA Telangana wishes you a "Happy Dussehra" to all the BSNL employeess

Smiley face


On the occasion of BSNL 18th formation day. I wouldlike to convey best wishes to all.

BSNL as a Govt public sector it has shouldered all the responsibilities of serving the public by giving communication service at very low price , quality service and making services available even at remotest part of the nation. Entry of our BSNL mobile services made every Indian public to afford the service at very low price. Present bsnl providing service to 105 million wireless and 13 million wireline customers across India.

As a social responsiblity, being Govt PSU BSNL is serving all the rural areas even at the loss for the company.

The dream of digital India plan of our honorable PM connecting all Gram Panchayat with Optical fibre cable was brought in to reality by BSNL through NOFN project. Even during all natural calamities bsnl is the only communication company stood like rock and gave its best services under crisis where all private operators shutdown their services.

BSNL is doing its best to the Public and to the Nation. But in return it is not getting proper support from the Govt, not getting chance of level play in the present market, not allowing BSNL to grow aggressively.

BSNL successfully completing 18 years, if at all BSNL servived for these 18 years means it is just only and only because of

1.Customer faith in BSNL service.
2.Effort and dedication of all employees.

So I request all the members let us encash the faith and belief that the public kept with BSNL and let us try our best to retain their faith with BSNL by delivering best services.
Now not only BSNL all telecom companies facing lots of financial crunch it is just because of price war in telecom market by entry of jio. This price war can't be avoided in the competition era. Now we need to diversify our business where we get good revenue. As you all know in mobile inspite of our good marketing effort in sim Mela our revenue is not shooting up but definitely our data usage increased. It shows our effort not resulting in revenue growth. Now in the present era of freebies it is very difficult to expect much revenue growth in the mobile services. Now we are dominant in Broad band , FTTH and Enterprise business. We need to be more aggressive in the coming days. We need to upgrade all our backhaul connectivity to give high speed data services.
We need to strengthen transmission systems which is the backbone for every service.
We are having challenges of 4G spectrum, financial crisis, material shortage and day by day we are loosing our trained brians by retirement , to face in coming days . We can overcome these challenges only with the support of all staff and with motivation of management.
On this day I appeal to all that let us focus more on the revenue generation and quality of service to the customer.
Let us try to give our best to the BSNL and make all efforts in taking BSNL U turn towards profit.
Let us dedicate to make this year as FTTH year and put our best effort in giving more and more FTTH connections.
Once again I wish all with best wishes on BSNL day.

regards Ramesh
