Coordination committee of AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA at EZBC met GM(CMTS-Nodal)                                                         20-Sep-14

Meeting with GM(CMTS-Nodal) in presence of DGM(Admin) and DE(Admin) on following issues:-

1. Sitting arrangement of newly promoted DEs: DGM(A) informed that work has already started in this regard.

2. Shortage of chairs: GM instructed SDE(Admin) to immediately contact Godrej for repair of all broken chairs. Most of the chairs used by the employees are in a very bad condition.

3. Problem of Drinking water: It has been proposed by the coordination committee to install atleast one Aqua Guard at Technical building as most of the time the existing water purifier are not working properly and the purified water is not so good also. GM told that he will look into.

4. Manning of powerplant for 24 hrs: As powerplant is the heart of all equipments, 24 hrs manning of powerplant is very much required to avoid power failure. Any outage results in disruption of services to all circles of East Zone.

5. Repairing of HP 9000 printer and Xerox machine at Technical Building: GM instructed DGM(A) to immediately look into the same.

6. Shortage of staff in EZBC: GM should write a letter to CGMT in this regard and then Circle coordination committee will take up the issue with CGMT also.

7. Quarters for EZBC staff: Some quarters should be under the control of GM(CMTS-Nodal) for EZBC employees so that delay in allotment of quarters can be avoided and some quarters will be atleast reserved for EZBC. It will be taken up with CGMT also.

         Circle updates                                                15.09.2014   

Mr. Jatin Das has been released from Raiganj on 13-Sep-14 to join his new assignment at Kolkata which had been possible only by the joint effort of AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA. We would like to extend our heartiest thanks to AIBSNLEA and we hope to get the same kind of support throughout West Bengal. 

Option called today for Darjeeling and Gangtok from longest stayee list. If no option received within 15 days, it is mentioned that senior most SDEs will be posted to those tenure places. AIGETOA is constantly trying to implement the longest stayee list so that executives posted in tenure/ rural/ remote places for a long time can get their choice of posting. Many executives are enjoying their home place for more than 25 years in many places including Kolkata but Circle management is unable to implement longest stayee list due to other associations. Tenure places and most of the SSAs are running with acute shortage of executives and places like Kolkata, Siliguri have large of executives. Don't you think uniform distribution of executives are somewhat required for efficient running of the circle?

AIGETOA & AIBSNLEA branch Level Coordination Committee meet was held at EZBC Salt Lake on 19th July 2014. The meeting was attended by all members of EZBC and CTTC. From AIGETOA side, CP Shri Prashant Jain and CS Shri Subhasish Paul shared the Dais and from AIBSNLEA side,  Shri N C Mahaldar DGM ( P&A) and Shri Mrinal Sengupta DGM (F) shared the Dais. CAO Shri Sushil Chandra Bhowal was also present in the meeting.

The meeting was presided under the chairmanship of Shri N. C. Mahaldar (DGM P&A) EZBC.

More than 50 members out of total 70 executives posted at EZBC participated in the meeting. In the inaugural address CP AIGETOA Prashant Jain briefed about the recent developments that have taken place in New Delhi at CHQ level and about the alliance formation between AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA for upcoming  executive association referendum to be held in December.

Shri Mahaldar in his address emphasized the need to unite for the welfare of BSNL and suggested that we should concentrate on BSNL First now since two big executive association have come on a single platform. It will not only strengthen and resolve the issues of executives , but also will streamline processes to speed up the recovery of BSNL , which is facing a difficult situation .

Shri Amar Mondal,  JAO EZBC  asked why despite having huge infrastructure BSNL is not in the top telecom service provider of the country, he reinforced the views that this alliance will boost unity amongst executives and will motivate each of us to perform with more enthusiasm and sincerity.

Shri Srijib Rai, SDE EZBC  conveyed that this unity will change the destiny of our company which is  going through a torrid time and we as employees are not even sure that  whether we will get the next month salary or not . He said that without unity survival of BSNL seems like a distant dream and welcomed the decision of both the association to come together for not only the welfare of associations but also to improve the chances that our company will reinvent itself and come out of blue it has been facing for the last few years.

CS AIGETOA Shri  Subhasish Paul  insisted that due to this alliance executive unity will improve and local issues will be easily resolved as their won’t be any difference of opinion between these two executive associations. The presence of very experienced officers will be a morale booster for the direct recruited executives who has been badly exploited due to political conflict of interest and alien management.

Shri Ashutosh Sahoo, DS EZBC said unity will make EZBC a better place to work and it was indeed the need of the hour .

Shri Sanat Kumar Sen, SDE (Trans) and Branch Secretary AIBSNLEA said that he is  happy that AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA will be fighting together the executive association verification process in future and experience of AIBSLEA and Energy in AIGETOA will  form a lethal alliance. He further suggested that AIGETOA should keep in touch with their members and also that other executive association is spreading false rumors about the number of supporting members it has .

Finally as desired by the CHQ of both the executive association a branch level coordination committee was formed as follows :

AIGETOA  & AIBSNLEA Cordination committee at EZBC Salt Lake.

1. Shri S N Bannerjee DE(IR)- Chairman

2. Shri Samit Talukdar AO( Billing)- Member

Non forwarding/ Delay in sending option applications of JTO/ SDEs, WBTC to concerned circles                            Date:07.07.14

CS write to CGMT for the Non forwarding/ Delay in sending option applications of JTO/ SDEs, WBTC to concerned circles
Options called for various places under NCNGN circles
but till date no applications has been forwarded by the circle administration. In spite of the fact that concerned SSAs/ Units have forwarded the applications about 2-3 weeks back to circle office, candidates are being given lame excuses like GM (HR) is out of station and the decision to forward will be taken only once he will be back from leave. Needless to say that such delay even after passing last date will render the whole exercise useless.
