DoT to impose fine on infra companies
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) will impose a fine of Rs 5 lakh on infrastructure firms if their base transceiver stations (BTS) had not received environmental clearance by November 15.
“All base transceiver stations, which have not been certified by November 15, 2010, or are not compliant, face a penalty of Rs five lakh each,” an official statement said here today.
BTS facilitates wireless communication between equipment and a mobile network. There are 560,000 BTS operational in the country, of which 416,000 systems have so far been self-certified for adherence to the standards prescribed by International Commission for Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), the statement said.
DoT had extended the deadline for self-certificates to the Telecom Engineering and Resource Monitoring (TERM) Cells of DoT to November 15 from May 15.
“Even though there is no direct evidence of negative health-related implication of these radiations, the government is seized of the concerns raised in this regard and, as such, made self-certification a basic minimum requirement that telecom companies must adhere to,” Minister of State for Communications and IT Sachin Pilot said in the statement.
In another development, a study released by the industry bodies Cellular Operators Association of India and Association of Unified Telecom Service Providers of India said the radiation levels in Delhi are much below the international safety standards, putting to rest the growing public concern over emission of harmful radiation and related health hazards from mobile towers.
The study further said cumulative emissions from the cellular mobile towers are much below the prescribed limit set by the ICNIRP.

Sub:: -- IIntroductiion off NE--12 pay scalle Rs 9200--250--13200 ffor Non--Executiives iin BSNL—Reg
Reff:: -- Your lletter No.. BSNL/39--3--/SR/2006/Voll--IIIIII dated 08--09--2010
Wiith refference to the above ciited lletter,, the ffollllowiing iis submiitted ffor ffavor off consiideratiion::
1.. Whereas the reviised pay ffor NE--11 iis Rs 16370--30630,, you have proposed Rs 16380--30640
ffor NE--12 thus iincreasiing a meager Rs 10/-- iin the maxiimum off NE--12 compared to NE--11.. On
what basiis such a maxiimum was arriived at iis not known.. But iit iis most unreasonablle and
unacceptablle..
2.. As per the DPE guiidelliine,, the iintroductiion off non--executiive pay scalle has to be done wiithout
comiing iinto confflliict wiith the executiive pay scalle iin concerned CPSE.. Hence the NE--12 pay
scalle has to be iintroduced wiithout confflliict wiith the E1((JJTO)) pay scalle iin BSNL.. The E--1 pay
scalle iis Rs 16400--40500.. Thereffore iin case 16390--40490 iis deciided as the NE--12 pay scalle,, iit
iis cllear that iit wiillll not come iinto confflliict wiith the E--1 pay scalle..
3.. But iinstead off thiis,, you have proposed 16380--30640 as NE--12.. Your proposed maxiimum Rs
30640/-- iis totalllly iinadequate siince many offffiiciialls who wiillll be promoted to NE--12 wiillll
iimmediiatelly fface stagnatiion wiith such a meager maxiimum pay iin NE--12..
4.. Case off Srii P..Sriikriishna Sr Accountant Viijjayawada iis giiven here under as an iillllustratiion
regardiing thiis stagnatiion probllem::
He was at Rs 10275/-- on 1--7--2004 iin 7800--225--11175 scalle affter drawiing due iincrement on
1--7--2004.. He wiillll get 1stt upgradatiion as per NEPP and wiillll be ffiixed at Rs 10775/-- iin NE--11
scalle on 1--10--2004.. He wiillll be at Rs 11265/-- iin NE--11 scalle on 1--1--2007 and wiillll be ffiixed at Rs
24720/--.. ((He wiillll retiire on 31--5--2015)).. He wiillll get promotiion to NE--12 scalle on 1--10--2011at
Rs 29560/--.. He has to draw three more iincrements beffore retiirement and wiillll reach Rs
32320/-- beffore retiirement,, as detaiilled bellow::
1--10--2012=30450;; 1--10--2013=31370;; 1--10--2014=32320
But the maxiimum off the pay scalle proposed was Rs 30640/-- onlly.. Thereffore he wiillll reach
stagnatiion iin the second year affter he got promotiion to NE--12..
5.. Hence to avoiid stagnatiion probllem and to avoiid confflliict wiith the executiive pay scalle,, the
maxiimum proposed by you iis totalllly iinadequate..
6.. Even iiff the maxiimum off NE--12 reviised scalle iis to be deciided on the basiis off NE--11 scalle span
ii..e 22 years span,, wiith the miiniimum deciided by mulltiipllyiing 9200 wiith 1..91ii..e Rs 17580/--,, iit
wiillll be Rs 33830/--.. But siince the miiniimum Rs 17580/-- iis comiing iinto confflliict wiith Rs 16400/--
off E--1,, the miiniimum can be deciided as Rs 16390/-- as and the maxiimum can be ffiixed as Rs
33830/--
7.. But there iis nothiing that prevents the fformullatiion off NE--12 pay scalle as Rs 16390--40490 as
proposed by us iin para2 above.. Very ffew emplloyees wiillll get promoted to NE--12 scalle and as
such there iis no worthwhiille ffiinanciiall iimplliicatiion iiff 40490/-- iis deciided as the maxiimum off NE--
12 pay scalle..
8.. Regardiing the date off effffect ffor the iintroductiion off the NE--12 pay scalle,, the DPE prescriibes
prospectiive effffect.. IIn the context off wage reviisiion iit means wiith effffect ffrom 1--1--2007.. As per
the wage reviisiion agreement,, viide para 1..2 off the terms off agreement the “new reviised IIDA
pay scalles under thiis agreement shallll be effffectiive ffrom 1stt JJanuary 2007”,, and as per the
para 6..1 off the preamblle iin the wage reviisiion agreement,, the “reviised pay scalles
correspondiing to pre--reviised pay scalles 9200--250--13200 & Rs 9850--250--14600 ffor non--
executiives wiillll be notiiffiied affter approvall by DoT”.. These two cllauses iin the wage reviisiion
agreement put together mean that the NE--12 pay scalle 9200--250--13200 iin iits reviised fform
has to come iinto effffect ffrom 1--1--2007..
IIn viiew off the ffacts and submiissiions mentiioned above,, iit iis requested to cause necessary actiion
ffor notiiffyiing NE--12 reviised pay scalle off non--executiives as Rs 16390--40490 wiith effffect ffrom 1--1--
2007..
We shallll be thankffull ffor an iimmediiate and ffavorablle response iin thiis regard..
Yours siincerelly,,

Com.S.Chandrasekharan passed away – our condolences

Com.S.Chandrasekharan, veteran leader of the P&T Trade union movement and former Asst. General Secretary of Administrative Union passed away yesterday at Chennai. He was at present working in CITU, Chennai. He was 80.

He was one of the leaders who was in the forefront fighting against the reformist policies of the NFPTE leadership. He was circle Secretary of both Administrative Offices Employees Union as also Line Staff Union, Chennai. He organised the Central Government employees movement there. Perhaps he and Com.A.K.Veeraraghavan might be the leaders who organised the Casual workers for the first time. For this and his other trade union activities, in 1977 he was compulsorily retired from service. But due to sustained efforts of the union he was reinstated. In 1979 he took voluntary retirement for full time trade union work and started working in CITU.

He was well studied and used to take regular trade union classes for the workers. He was always with the workers and for solving their problems. He was discussing a case with his advocate yesterday evening when all of a sudden there was serious heart attack and he succumbed to the same within minutes. He has got two daughters and one of them is working in BSNL.

We Convey our Heartfelt Condolences to the bereaved family, friends and comrades.

Red Salute to Com. Chandrasekharan !

CHQ conveys it’s revolutionary greetings for all the comrades who organized and participated in the strike. This was a glorious struggle to save BSNL. The strike was very successful with the whole hearted participation of the Non-Executives and Executives. The 3 lakh workforce has told in one voice and with determination that the game plan of the government and other vested interests to weaken BSNL will not be tolerated any more.



Comrades, viability of BSNL was the main demand of our struggle. As all of us know that it is not a demand which can be settled in a single day. Rather, it is a continuous process to be persued with the government. Our strike has given out a strong massage to the government that BSNL workers and officers are very serious in restoring the viability of BSNL. Taking the message in right perspective, the new Secretary, DoT has assured his whole hearted support to strengthen BSNL. JAC will seriously pursue this issue through the Secretary, DoT. BSNL management has assured us that it would procure equipments for another 15 million lines, in addition to the 5.5 million lines for which tender is almost finalized. JAC will continue to pressurise both the BSNL management as well as govt. of India to take appropriate steps to strengthen BSNL. The record of discussion given by the BSNL management is placed herewith for information. <>

BSNL Latest News by Ashok Hindocha M-09426201999- 3-Days Strike By Joint Action Committee-BSNL-Unions


Organise the 3 day strike effectively

The three day strike, called on by the JAC, is going to start from tomorrow, the 1st December, 2010. CHQ is receiving reports that in each and every Circle and District, meeting of the JAC is held and last minute preparations are being planned. The meeting held with the Regional Labour Commissioner yesterday, the 29.11.2010 has not yielded any result and it is only a formality. So far neither the Secretary DOT nor the ministers have called us for talks. This indifference has to be given a befitting reply. This is a “do” or “die” situation. Organise the strike effectively and make it a grand success. The strike will start from 0600 hrs on 01-12-2010 and will continue till 0600 hrs on 04-12-2010.

MNP Is Finally started-congratulations-inf. by Ashok Hindocha M-09426201999



MNP is finally started
www.bsnlnewsbyashokhindocha.blogspot.com M-09426201999
Mobile number portability (MNP) has long been awaited in India. Its implementation was postponed several times due to technical and bureaucratic glitches.

The service was originally scheduled for launch in December 2009, but the launch date was postponed to March 31 this year. Then it was again postponed to June 30, and thereafter to October 30.

The government clarified that it had taken the decision to delay MNP to October after evaluating whether access providers and long distance service providers were ready to implement the service, and in consideration of the complexity and enormity of testing involved before MNP is implemented.

MNP makes it possible for people to switch operators while maintaining their mobile number. For fear of losing their number, people often continued subscribing to a certain operator's services despite being dissatisfied with service.

MNP finally!

The delay was caused by a variety of factors including policies and stakeholder preparation. Finally, though, MNP will now be available in Haryana starting today.


The countrywide launch of MNP will start from Rohtak district in Haryana. The service will be implemented across the country in a phased manner.

A subscriber who wants his mobile number ported (change service provider) will have to send an SMS to 1900 to obtain a 'unique porting code'. After getting the porting code, he will have to submit a duly filled porting form along with a customer acquisition form and a proof of identity to the service provider he wishes to shift. There will be a porting charge of Rs 19.


Upon completing the formalities, the customer will get the new operator's SIM card, and the new operator will inform him of when he can start using it, which should be within seven working days.

The subscriber can then start using his new SIM at the specified time.

A mobile number porting request can be withdrawn within 24 hours of having been made.

Conditions

For now, mobile number portability is limited to the Haryana circle.

Also, subscribers can switch their service provider only after 90 days either from the day when their existing number was activated, or from the time when they last ported their mobile number.

Before porting, all dues will have to be cleared if it is a post paid number. If it is a pre paid connection, any talk time that remains in it will lapse.

GSM telcos extend support to Blackberry
www.bsnlnewsbyashokhindocha.blogspot.com M-9426201999


GSM telecom operators have came out in support of Blackberry-maker Research in Motion on the contentious issue of giving security agencies access to encrypted data sent using the high-end handsets, which has threatened the Canada-based company's survival in India.

Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) Director- General Rajan S Matthews said it would be very difficult to help the government decrypt the millions of messages sent everyday using Blackberry services.

"If the government wants to intercept messages, we (operators) provide with the bit string information. The government must develop the expertise to decrypt messages.

Encryption and decryption are government responsibilities.

Operator cannot provide text messages to the government," he told PTI on the sidelines of a workshop on 'Radiation from Mobile Towers'.

He said all issues concerning BlackBerry handsets, except for RIM's Enterprise Mail solution, have been resolved.



Earlier, India had raised concerns that BlackBerry's services could be used by anti-social elements to stir social instability.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has also expressed reservations and has been asking for a solution to decrypt data sent using Blackberry's corporate mail and messenger services.

RIM has to offer a final solution for interception of BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) services by the end of January next year.

Mathews said the problem in decrypting Enterprise emails was that two parties were involved -- the enterprise and the operator.

"Without the enterprise cooperation, with one part of the key, you cannot decrypt. How can I get in to two million or three million enterprise servers? It is dynamic and it is a technical issue that has to be resolved," he said.

"If you ask me to provide decryption for all the applications we offer on our network, I will go out of the system tomorrow," he added.
