Pension Problem : The 50% Merger and Revision of Pension for thos BSNL Employees retired between 1.10.2000 to 31.12.2009 is in doll drums. The main reason, as per reports is the non inclusion under Rule 37-A, the clauses available under Rule 37. As per report, DOT has closed the file and may process these cases under CDA.to suit the expectations of ITS. As BSNL retirees, as per Presidential orders, have severed their ties of Government Employees, legally they cannot be brought back to pension payment under CDA pattern. We have initiated steps to resolve this ticklish issue also.

JAO Part II Examinations-some Points

FROM :
JAO Part-II Candidates
of 17.12.2009

To,
The Chief General Manager Telecom.,
Gujarat Telecom. Circle,
AHMEDABAD-6

SUB : Request for Re-scheduling of JAO Part-II Examination due to Discrimination in Syllabus and Examination Pattern for Direct Recruitees and Departmental Candidates- Reg.

Respected Sir,

In connection to the above subject, most humbly we, the following Departmental Candidates pursuing for JAO Part -II Examination request your kind attention to the following :

JAO Part -II examination is scheduled on 4-5-6, January, 2010.

1. Syllabus of JAO Part-II Examination for Internal Candidates is very old. It has no application in BSNL's daily operations and procedures at present. A number of Administration and Accounting Reforms are introduced since last 10 years. A number of software packages are available with us and these have replaced the old procedures at present. All our Billing and Accounting Procedures are fully computerized.

2. P & T Volumes are found of no use as we are working with Corporate Sector.

3. P.I./R.S.A./T.T.A. were given Promotion based on their performance in Qualifying Examination of Screening Test. Why this can not be applied in case of J.A.O.s also.

4. Majority of the Candidates appearing for JAO Part-II Examination are having experience more than 20 years. They are fully conversant with the day to day operations and Accounting Procedures. BSNL must use their experience and convergence in the interest of Company by offering them relaxations by the means of Multiple Choice Objective Type Question Papers.

5. BSNL has launched a number of New Services and at the same time, there are number of Services and Accounting Procedures are out dated, say, not in use. All such parts of Syllabus should be removed from the Examination. For example, FHB, CPWD, P&T Volumes etc. It may please be noted that these Publications are not available in Market now a days. Hence, it is not possible to appear for Examination without these Books as Xerox Copies of these Books are not permitted in Examination Hall.

6. It is noticed that Direct Recruitment Candidates has to appear only for 02 papers of 100 Marks each with Multiple Choice Objective Type Question Papers. While Departmental Candidates has to clear 05 papers of Total 550 Marks in JAO Part-II Examination.
Earlier, JAO Part-I examination was descriptive. But now, same was converted into Screening Test as in the Case of External Candidates based on Multiple choice question papers. While, JAO Part-II Examination is still in descriptive pattern thereby creating discrimination between External and Internal Candidates.

Therefore, looking to the above fact, we request you to kindly look in to the context and take immediate actions at your end for rescheduling of JAO Part-II Examination in the wider interest of Company as more than 2000 Departmental Candidates appearing in JAO Part-II Examination.

Thanking you sir in anticipation.

Yours sincerely,

BSNL Disinvestment may be delayed

BSNL divestment may be delayed
www.bsnlnewsbyashokhindocha.blogspot.com M-9426201999
CHENNAI: The government’s divestment programme is going full throttle but it’s a slightly different take for BSNL, as its efforts to go public still seems to be in a limbo.

And the public sector telecom company’s chairman only confirms this, saying that BSNL wasn’t on the government’s priority list as far as divestment is concerned.

“There are a large number of companies that the government is planning to list and naturally there will be staggering to see that the market doesn’t have lot of IPOs coming at one time from PSUs. Already, the priorities of the government have been identified and BSNL doesn’t figure in that, so that I don’t think it will happen that soon,” BSNL chairman and managing director Kuldeep Goyal told ET NOW on Monday.

While a resolution has been passed to recommend selling 10% of BSNL’s shares to the public, there’s been no progress after that. The company is still awaiting the government’s decision on the stake sale, after which it will appoint merchant bankers.

Meanwhile, it is trying to iron out differences with its employee unions, to ensure a smooth listing. “Many employees are in favour of it. Union associations are having some resistance but as and when government decides, we will talk to them and see that they appreciate the need for it,” Mr Goyal said.

BSNL is beefing up its third-generation or 3G services, even as private players are preparing to enter the space. The telco was the first off the block to get its 3G services going, but the pace of customer additions was far from a runaway success.

“Initially the uptake was low but now it’s picking up very well. We have five lakh customers now, in the North and East zone and we hope to reach 10 lakh customers by March-end. We are installing a capacity of 50 lakh and we hope to use this to the maximum extent in the coming year,” Mr Goyal said.

Govt.Approved Extension of Order to Sick ITI-Information


Govt approves extension of order benefits to sick ITI
www.bsnlnewsbyashokhindocha.blogspot.com M-9426201999
NEW DELHI: In an attempt to revive loss-making telecom equipment manufacturer ITI, the government today approved a proposal under which the company will continue to get orders for 30 per cent of products requirement of BSNL and MTNL in reservation quota.
The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) has decided to continue with the reservation quota at 30 per cent of the requirement of BSNL and MTNL for products manufactured by ITI. Moreover, BSNL and MTNL would give 70 per cent advance against orders placed on ITI.

However, the CCEA made it clear that ITI would accept orders under the reservation quota only after the price is known and is commercially viable.

The earlier reservation benefit of 30 per cent along with 70 per cent advance to ITI had expired on September 20, 2009.

BSNL and MTNL has been requested to extend these benefits to ITI for one year from September 21, 2009 due to poor financial health of the telecom equipment manufacturer.

ITI incurred an accumulated loss of Rs 3,219 crore on March 31, 2009.

The extension of order benefits from BSNL and MTNL will ensure enough orders for ITI for production activities.

Wage Negotiation – Meeting on 24th December 2009

A meeting was held between the staff side with Shri S.R.Kapoor, Chairman, Wage Negotiation Committee on 24th December 2009.
Staff Side told the official side that thousands of employees will face stagnation immediately after wage revision and many will cross the maximum of the pay scale to which they will be promoted after pay fixation on promotion because of the short span of revised pay scales. They briefed in details about many such cases with examples. They stressed that the span of pay scales should be sufficiently long to avoid these problems.
Management wanted to abolish supply of uniform, rain coats, chappals, shoes, as also stitching charges, washing allowances etc. to those officials who are getting the same at present. Staff side had strongly and completely opposed the proposal and insisted that these which are in existence for the last so many decades should continue. They also proposed that they should be extended to all staff.
Management stated that they will examine these issues raised by the staff side.
In view of Xmas and New Year Holidays as also that many of the official side members are on leave, the meeting for considering the draft agreement will be held only on 5th January 2010

Job Survey imp. Information

www.bsnlnewsbyashokhindocha.blogspot.com

Over 60 percent of employees in India ready to quit
By siliconindia news bureau
Thursday,24 December 2009, 07:23 hrs Comment(72)PrintForward
New Delhi: Even if the going is tough in the market, more than half of the people surveyed are ready to quit job, switch the professions or take break. 62 percent of the respondents were ready to consider quitting; taking a career break or shifting to a firm with flexi-work options in order to handle the family responsibilities better, said a survey.


According to the findings of the survey conducted by Outlook Business and Avtar Career Creators, the high competition at work place, lead employees towards extreme job conditions and they are gradually realising the need for family life. The survey was conducted on 745 private sector employees between November and December 2009, and was done across seven cities - Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune across varied sector, including FMCG, IT, ITES, consulting and telecom.

Also, the survey found that as many as 40 respondents felt that internal issues of the company are responsible for unhealthy work life balance and an equal number said they know people who took a break or resigned last year due to their responsibilities at home. There is a crying need for work-life balance measures. Hyper competition has meant all the stops are being pulled out for customer service, which leads to extreme jobs. There is a renewed awareness and interest in personal life, the survey said.

According to the survey, while 38 percent of the respondents blamed the location of the workplace for bad work-life balance, 44 percent believed a balanced life would give them time to study or train further.

"In a society filled with conflicting responsibilities and commitments, work-life balance has become a predominant issue in the workplace," Avtar Career Creators' Founder-President Saundarya Rajesh said.

The Cabinet on Thursday decided to grant top public sector undertaking (PSU) companies the maharatna status that would give them more autonomy in decision making.

At a briefing, Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting said companies that could qualify as a maharatna needed to have an annual net worth of Rs 15,000 crore in the last three years and an annual profit post tax of Rs 5,000 crore.

Currently, the government has navratnas, which contains 18 PSUs but the new maharatna status allows those company that qualify to make investment decisions to the tune of Rs 5,000 crore without requirement of government approval.



“One of the major impact of this approval is the scheme envisages to empower mega central public sector enterprises to expand their operations and emerge as global giants,” Soni said.

No Bonus? Imp. Inf. by ashok hindocha


No bonuses? Give us more offs: Employees

Bangalore: To keep themselves motivated, about 37 percent of employees said they would prefer extra time off, if a year-end cash bonus wasn't an option, says a survey.

According to the survey conducted by TopGrading Solutions, 21 percent said a simple "thank you" would be an ample motivator, and 15 percent said that they would favor a holiday bash. The survey consisted of workers in the retail technology, payment solutions, and supply chain procurement and planning industries.


Also, the remaining 26 percent of employees felt there was nothing that could be done to motivate them at year-end. Nine percent felt that their companies did a fine job keeping them motivated during the recession, whereas 17 percent stated nothing could turn their low spirits around.

Dave Camp, Executive recruiter for Retail Technology at TopGrading Solutions, said in a statement that increasing employee spirits becomes more crucial as the recession comes to its tail-end. He pointed out that the company's last poll showed that nearly 50 percent of respondents were looking to leave their current employer due to mistreatment during the recession.

"Either a day off or a simple card showing your gratitude could be enough to bring the team back together in time to embrace and conquer 2010," said Camp. "Otherwise, as the economy improves, managers may face a retention nightmare."

Only one Indian CEO among top 50 global CEOs

New Delhi: Harvard Business Review has ranked Reliance Industries' head Mukesh Ambani among top five best performing CEOs in the world.

Ambani is the only Indian CEO to be featured among top 50 CEOs, is in the same league as Steve Jobs of Apple, Yun Jong-Yong of Samsung Electronics, Russian energy firm Gazprom's Alexey Miller and John Chambers of Cisco Systems.


Not only best performing CEO, Ambani has also been ranked two among the top 10 emerging market CEOs with Miller at the top. K V Kamath of ICICI Bank is the other Indian in the list of Top 10 Emerging Market CEOs. He is ranked at number nine.

The Harvard Business Review said that it ranked CEOs of large public traded companies in a study conducted over 2000 CEOs worldwide. The entire group represented 48 nationalities and companies based in 33 countries.

Many CEOs who were most respected according to other reviews were nowhere in HBR's top 50. These include Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase, Satoru Iwata of Nintendo, Sam Palmisano of IBM and Rex Tillerson of Exxon Mobil. "Some of these well-known CEOs have not necessarily done poorly; they are just not among the top performers in the world according to the total shareholder return they have delivered so far," said HBR.

CEOs like Jack Welch, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison and Bill Gates dis not find their names in the list as HBR considered CEOs who assumed the job no earlier than January 1995 and no later than December 2007.

Good Looking Employees Wok Less? know the matter

Good looking employees work less?
By siliconindia news bureau
Saturday,12 December 2009, 09:52 hrs Comment(31)PrintForward
New Delhi: There might be one answer, but believe it at your own risk - after all, it's only skin deep. According to a survey by research firm Synovate on beauty, 55 percent people in India and Brazil believe that good looking people can get away with less work. Delhi Times spoke to a few Delhiites to find out if they were part of the 55 percent, and came up with some heartburn, and some stubborn belief in merit. Which of the two do you feel?


The people who said yes, the lookers actually did get home earlier and get to have a life, blamed only themselves for it. "See, it's not about how much work good looking people do or don't do, but what other people do for them. Yes, the levels of acceptability are lowered for people who look pleasing," admits Theatreperson Aamir Raza Hussain. "I mean, if I had a pretty secretary who made a thousand spelling mistakes per page, I'd be more likely to explain things to her gently. If she were short, fat and ugly, however" and he leaves the workday from hell to the imagination.

Ad Executive and Musician Surojit Dev is not quite so introspective. "Obviously they do. Especially in a service industry, you do use your beauty and charm to get out of work. Even if the biologically blessed don't actively use their charm, they know that it's a weapon they have at their disposal. Typically, the office charmer, for instance, would not hang around with colleagues at the office, but would go out with them. 'Oh, let's discuss this over lunch', or 'Oh! Let's go out for a drink.' It'll be five minutes of work-related conversation and 30 minutes of chatting," he says. There are those, however, who provide unusual insights into the issue. Ranjita Chaney, a 28-year-old art curator, says there might be a slight advantage, not because of looks, but gender.

"I would say it's easier for a woman to get work done," Ranjita says. "Even if I'm pulled over by the police on the road, say, I'd get away with much more lenient treatment than a guy. In general, the fact that women are considered the weaker sex works in their favor. It tends to happen that way, not that you intend to use your gender to get away easily. And of course, if you dress decently, that matters. If I dress like a punk, I won't be perceived as a serious curator. But beauty is not an issue. In fact, women are more competitive," she adds.

[09.12.2009]Historic Agreement signed today, (9-12-2009), on settlement of Pay Anomalies/Aberrations:- Due to point to point fixation of pay on conversion from CDA to IDA pay scales on 1-10-2000, in several cases the seniors in higher pay scales got less than their juniors in lower pay scales.

In MTNL, it couldn’t be settled since there was no rule to settle it. In BSNL, when NFTE took up the case, the management convinced them that it is not possible to settle these anomalies.

After getting recognition, the BSNLEU and United Forum took up the issue seriously and a Committee was constituted with management and union representatives for settlement of these anomalies. The Committee gave its report for settling these anomalies as per Revised Pay Rules applicable for Central Government Employees and it was sent for the approval of DoT.

The DoT sent back the file with the objection that the Revised Pay Rules were not applicable for settling these anomalies/aberrations since it was conversion from CDA to IDA Pay Scales and was not pay revision.

Thereafter a Committee was constituted under the chairmanship of Shri P.K.Misra, DGM (Estt.) Consisting of representatives of the management and Union to recommend how to settle these anomalies. The Committee met several times and finally an agreement is signed to day (9-12-2009) between the Official and Staff sides. The agreement is that the difference in the pay between the junior in the lower pay scale and the senior in the higher pay scale as on 1-10-2000 will be paid as Personal Pay to the Senior.

The Staff Side in the Committee was represented by Com V.A.N.Namboodiri GS BSNLEU and Com P.Asokababu AGS BSNLEU. <<< Copy of the agreement >>>

2. The multiplication factor will be 1.91 as in the case of executives. In the case of the NE I scale, multiplication factor may be increased to 2.

Here is a verbatim transcript of an exclusive interview with Kuldeep Goyal on CNBC-TV18. Also watch the accompanying video.
Q: First one word on the kind of acquisition plans BSNL has had, there has been plenty of talk about how you are looking at considering Zain Telecom perhaps in combination of couple of other entities, is that on the table for BSNL?
A: We have a proposal which we are looking at. There is a proposal not directly from Zain but some other companies and we have not made up any conclusive thing on that, we are looking at it as of now.

Q: What would Zain offer to BSNL though by way of an asset that you acquire and will it be a combination of entities that will put in a bit, will it be BSNL, MTNL and Vavasi or will BSNL want to go it alone?
A: Zain offers a lot because they are in 70 markets, Africa and Middle East and there is a lot of potential for growth so definitely it is a very good proposal to look at. This being a very large value deal naturally it will be in combination with the others. We are already talking about MTNL and not only Vavasi there could be some other partner also to see that everyone has manageable share to put in.
Q: What is your own estimate of the kind of values telecom holds and how soon would you make up your mind whether or not to put in a bit?
A: We have not done any due diligence so fast so it maybe difficult to put a value as of now. The earlier deal which did not go through, there was some valuation done and the one which has been talked of sometime back where it was announced in Kuwait in the press. So there are wide variations between these valuations and one has to look at what exactly emerges after due diligence so we can say something after it is really worked out.
Q: We understand you do have plans to outsource your management and maintenance of your infra businesses as well, can you tell us what is the rationale behind this particular plan and what is the kind of cost saving if any that you will incur?
A: Actually we are looking at various things, we are sharing our infrastructure and we are also trying to outsource the management if it improves the network performance because right now we have been doing everything on our own. Looking at the models which are there now and which have been very successful, outsourcing of the infrastructure is one model which we are looking at. We have recently started sharing; we have two deals already one with Aircel and one with Tata Telecom where we have made our infrastructure available do them and now we are looking to improve the SLAs (service level agreement) for our customers and therefore that has to be looked at and I think we should be seeing that after some time
Q: There are also reports that say that BSNL IPO may happen early next year; could you give us an update on that?
A: Now the decision has to be taken by the government as to when and how it should be done. BSNL Board had already passed a resolution where it recommended to the government for an IPO and government looking at various factors, various public sector undertakings (PSU) which have to be listed etc. will have to a take a decision which could be early next year, although it is difficult to say but that could be the time frame.


Q: The government stand is that this cannot happen without employee consent- have you and the trade unions reached any common ground on differences that exist?
A: There have been some dialogues with the employees with their executives and non-executives of and on, there has not been agreement on that. But once a decision is taken and we talk to them in details, I think we should be able to carry them with us.
Q: Any detail on how exactly the government is keen on going about this process of listing BSNL. Will it be fresh shares that would be issued in the equity market or will the government itself look at pairing its stake down?
A: It could be some disinvestment and some public share issue. It is not really very firmed up. We have not had from government any official communication on that but I understand that they considering some issue of existing equity to the public and also disinvesting some to some of the organizations, institutions, it is not really firmed up as of now I think.
Q: On 3G – could you give us what the response is being like and what is the kind of outflow that you expect and how this would be impacting your revenues as well?
A: We have already launched 3G in 180 cities and we have some 62,000 customers working on it. Initially when we started with 11 cities in end February this year we had only partial coverage of those cities which now we have been gradually improving and many cities we have full coverage. We have also added services on this 3G. When we initially started we had only video calling and high speed internet and mobile TV services. Subsequently we have added high speed video streaming, full stream music download, multiplayer gaming and services like that. There has been a good response. We find that the response is gradually improving initially customer additions were very few but last couple of months we find it has picked up a lot. So basically coverage getting increased and services being added then tariffs also we have made quite affordable. I have a lot of hope that this will pick up and should be a good revenue earning thing for us.
Q: BSNL has an extremely large equipment contract in the pipeline – have you decided who you will allocate it to and will ITI indeed be one of the contractors?
A: The equipment procurement for our mobile network expansion is being done; it is on a zonal basis. In four zones we have got different request for proposals (RFPs) which have been floated. The RFP for North-East and South zone is under finalization, negotiations with vendors are on. For the West zone right now there is no consideration but ITI could be because we have always been partnering with ITI in the West zone, and it could be one possibility but as of now we have not yet decided on the West zone. So the finalization of the equipment procurement is yet to happen on all the zones.
Q: How large is the contracts specifically for the west zone?
A: Put together in fact all the four zones, the equipment procurement was planned for 93 million, 25 million of lines in North, West and South zone and 18 million in East zone. I would not like to put a figure in terms of the value because the equipment is not in one. We have got four different parts of it, 2G, 3G, infrastructure and IT components and those are being evaluated but it is a large value tender, very large value no doubt. For the west zone again it could be 25 million lines but this is not to be procured in one go. This is again going to be in three different phases and depending upon the requirement of the equipment to that extent only procurement will be done. So to put a firm value on the total procurement may not be really appropriate at this moment.
Q: Could you put a number to the kind of savings that you would incur from these plans to out source these for management of infrastructure and do you have any more cost saving initiatives going forward? Do you have plans to reevaluate your CDMA based services?
A: As far as the cost saving is concerned by sharing of infrastructure we have made a beginning and we have already signed agreements with Aircel and Tata Telecom for sharing our tower infrastructure which will definitely reduce our opex (operation expenditure) on those tower infrastructure and by out sourcing that because right now we have lot of expenditure which is being incurred, we have spent almost Rs 11,000 crore (eleven thousand crore) on our operations and maintenance of our complete network. There could be a significant reduction if we can outsource that in a way that we can optimize the expenditure on those. Putting a firm value may not be possible but out of this Rs 11,000 crore, if it is properly managed through out sourcing model we could save a significant portion.
