Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) Uttarakhand: BSNL to fix mobile towers at crucial spots in three days M-94262 54999 Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) Uttarakhand: BSNL to fix mobile towers at crucial spots in three days : BSNL on Friday said it will restore within three days its mobile towers at places where most of the stranded people are located in flood-hit Uttarakhand. "Our 270 BTS (mobile towers) were down till last (Thursday) evening across state. Out of these, we have restored 10 BTS at crucial locations where most of stranded people are located. In next three days most of the BTS will be up and running," BSNL Chairman and Managing Director R K Upadhyay told PTI. He added that BSNL has restored 10 telephone exchanges out of the 72 that were impacted by heavy rains and floods. "The absence of a usable road network has prevented access to the affected areas for movement of the technical teams. Additionally, the lack of electricity means diesel needs to be supplied to the sites on an urgent basis to restart the affected sites and keep the operational ones running," industry body COAI's Director General Rajan S Mathews said. "The fuel stations located in the high altitude regions have been damaged and are running dry, while the unusable roads are preventing the supply of diesel to the affected sites from other places," he added. BSNL said it has restored network at Janki Chatti, Barkot and Phata where most of the people are stuck. As per official estimates, around 50,000 people are stranded at various locations in Uttarakhand. Mathews said bigger issue is of power supply which is impacting the telecom sites that were working. "Special requests have been made to state authorities to make diesel available for mobile tower sites. All the headquarters of telecom companies are closely monitoring situation," he added. BSNL said its mobile tower at Harsil is facing power crisis due to fault in power plant and shortage of diesel. The BSNL CMD said that floods have washed away the optical fibre network due to which network at most of the places is not available. "Around 4 to 5 kilometers of optical fibre cable has been washed away by the flood between Agustmuni and Tilwara. It will take 3 days for us to lay these fibres after which most of the towers will start functioning," Upadhyay said. On the other hand, Department of Telecom has written to District Magistrate of Uttarakashi to help telecom operators in restoration of their network. "As you are aware about present situation of Uttarakashi area where lot of tourist are facing problem due to non-availability of communication are requested to extend each and every possible support to telecom service providers to early restoration of telecom network in affected area," DoT said in its letter.

Upadhyay today the 20.06.2013 and discussed the following issues:- (i) Devastations caused due to floods in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh Circles. The Union representatives demanded that all required equipments, materials and funds should be rushed to these circles for early restoration of services. The CMD replied that Corporate Office is already on the job. The Union representatives also demanded that financial assistance should be given to the affected BSNL staff members. The CMD agreed to the demand. (ii) Continuation of the telegram services. The Union representatives strongly argued against the discontinuation of the telegram service. They gave suggestions for minimizing the loss on account of running the telegram service. Union representatives requested the CMD to consider the suggestions. (iii) Payment of arrears on implementation of 78.2% IDA merger. Union representatives cited the order issued by DoT on 10.06.2013, wherein it is stated that no arrears would be paid. They argued that as per the agreement signed between the Unions & Associations and the Management, on 12.06.2012, the arrears should be paid as and when the financial position of the Company improves. The CMD agreed to look into it. (iv) Payment of allowances, based on 78.2% IDA merger. The Union representatives pointed out that the order issued by Corporate Office (Letter no.1-16-2010-PAT (BSNL) dated 13.06.2013) that all allowances would be paid, based on 68.8% IDA merger, is totally incorrect. They demanded that except, HRA, Professional Upgradation Allowance and medical, there are certain other allowances which are being paid as a percentage of basic pay (like Special Duty Allowance, Hard Area Allowance, etc.), and these allowances should be paid based on 78.2% IDA merger. The CMD agreed to look into this. Further the Union representatives demanded that HRA, Professional Upgradation Allowance etc., should also be reviewed and be paid based on 78.2% IDA merger.

ઝારખંડ ખનીજનો ભંડાર : પરિમલ નથવાણી..... | Main News | By Ashok Hindocha M-94262 54999

ઝારખંડ ખનીજનો ભંડાર : પરિમલ નથવાણી..... | Main News |
ઝારખંડ ખનીજનો ભંડાર : પરિમલ નથવાણી
શક્‍તિશાળી ગુજરાતી પરિમલભાઇ ઝારખંડ સાથે લાગણીના બંધને બંધાયા : આ ભૂમિનું ઋણ ચુકવવા નિરંતર સક્રિય * ઝારખંડથી રાજ્‍યસભામાં ગયેલા પરિમલભાઇએ ‘ઝારખંડ : મેરી કર્મભૂમિ' ગ્રંથ પ્રકાશિત કર્યો * ઝારખંડ ખનીજ સંપત્તિના આધારે નિયાભરમાં

                                    શ્રી પરિમલભાઇ નથવાણીના સહયોગથી ઝારખંડમાં થયેલા અને થતાં વિકાસકાર્યોની ઝલક.
                                    રાજકોટ તા. ૭ : સંઘર્ષના પગથિયાં ચઢીને સિધ્‍ધિના સિંહાસને બિરાજતા ગરવા ગુજરાતી પરિમલભાઇ નથવાણી રાજ્‍યસભામાં પણ પોતાની આગવી આભા અંકિત કરી છે. જે પ્રાંતમાંથી રાજ્‍યસભામાં પ્રવેશ કર્યો, એ પ્રાંત સાથે તેઓ રાજકીય નહિ - પણ લાગણીના બંધને બંધાયા છે. ઝારખંડના વિકાસમાં સક્રિય ભૂમિકા ભજવીને સાંસદ તરીકે પ્રેરકકાર્ય કર્યું છે, કરે છે. ઉદ્યોગ જગતમાં સફળતાના ડંકા વગાડયા બાદ પરિમલભાઇએ સેવાની દુનિયામાં પણ પ્રેરક શંખનાદ કર્યો છે.
                                    ‘ઝારખંડ : મેરી કર્મભૂમિ' સરવૈયારૂપે પરિમલભાઇએ ગ્રંથ પ્રકાશિત કર્યો છે. આ ગ્રંથમાં થયેલા અને થનારા સેવાકાર્યો - વિકાસકાર્યોને સચિત્ર - સરસ રીતે પ્રકાશિત કર્યા છે. આ ગ્રંથ અગિયાર અધ્‍યાયોમાં છવાયેલો છે.
                                    પ્રસ્‍તાવનામાં પરિમલભાઇ લખે છે કે, ઝારખંડની ભૂમિ ખનીજોનો ભંડાર છે, જે માત્ર દેશમાં જ નહિ - દુનિયાભરમાં છવાઇ જવા સક્ષમ છે. ‘ઝારખંડ મેરા સપના હૈ, ઝારખંડ મેરા અપના હૈ' આ સૂત્ર દર્શાવે છે કે, પરિમલ નથવાણી આ પ્રાંતના પ્રેમી બની ગયા છે.
                                    તેઓ કહે છે, રાજ્‍યસભા ચૂંટણી જીત્‍યા બાદ મેં આપેલા વચન પ્રમાણે ઝારખંડ સાથે આત્‍મીયતાનો નાતો જોડયો છે અને રાંચીમાં કાર્યાલય શરૂ કર્યું છે. ઝારખંડ માટે હું ‘બહારનો માણસ' હતો છતાં મને તક આપીને રાજ્‍યસભામાં મોકલ્‍યો છે. મારા મનમાં એ જરૂર હતું કે, ચૂંટણી જીતીશ તો સાંસદની ગ્રાન્‍ટમાંથી તો વિકાસકાર્યો કરીશ જ, પરંતુ મારા અંગત ફંડ તથા મારી કંપની રિલાયન્‍સ ઇન્‍ડસ્‍ટ્રીઝના સહયોગથી કંઇક વિશેષ કાર્ય કરીશ.
                                    શ્રી નથવાણી કહે છે કે, ઝારખંડ પ્રાંતના અંતરિયાળ પ્રવાસ દરમિયાન લોકોની મૂળભૂત સુવિધાનો અભાવ નજર સામે આવ્‍યો. શાળાના એક રૂમમાં ત્રણ સ્‍ટાન્‍ડર્ડના છાત્રો બેસતા જોયા. વીજળી, માર્ગો, સ્‍વાસ્‍થ્‍ય સેવા, મોબાઇલ નેટવર્કના ઠેકાણા ન હતા.
                                    નવેમ્‍બર ૨૦૦૦માં ઝારખંડની રચનાને ૧૨ વર્ષ થયા હતા. રાજ્‍ય માટે ૧૨ વર્ષની વય મોટી ન ગણાય. અલગ ઝારખંડની કલ્‍પના સાકાર કરવામાં શિબૂ સોરેન, એન.ઇ.હોરો, જયપાલસિંહ જેવા દિગ્‍ગજ નેતાઓએ ખૂબ મહેનત કરી હતી. ઝારખંડ ખનીજ સંપત્તિથી સમૃધ્‍ધ છે, પણ આર્થિક વિકાસ ઓછો છે. ખનીજ તેલના મુદ્દે સાઉદી અરબની દુનિયાભરમાં બોલબાલા છે. ઝારખંડ ભૂમિ ખનીજનો ભંડાર છે. આ ભંડાર થકી ઝારખંડ માત્ર દેશમાં જ નહિ, દુનિયાભરમાં છવાઇ જવા સક્ષમ છે.
                                    શ્રી નથવાણી કહે છે કે, મારા કાર્યોમાં ઝારખંડનું હિત સર્વોપરી છે. સાંસદની ગ્રાન્‍ટ ઉપરાંત મારા ખુદના અને કંપનીના ફંડમાંથી ૨.૫૩ કરોડનો વધારાનો ખર્ચ કર્યો છે. રાંચીમાં હોસ્‍પિટલનું નવું ભવન, રૈન્‍ડોમાં સોલાર પ્‍લાન, ગરીબ વિસ્‍તારોમાં સૂર્યદિપનું નિઃશુલ્‍ક વિતરણ તથા શાળા-કોલેજોમાં રૂમનું નિર્માણ વગેરે કાર્યો થયા છે. રાંચીની અતિ ગરીબ વસ્‍તી ઇસ્‍લામનગરની તો કાયાપલટ થઇ ગઇ છે. સાંસદની ગ્રાન્‍ટમાંથી રૂા. ૧૧ કરોડના કામો કર્યા છે. આદિવાસી વિસ્‍તારોમાં શિક્ષણ, સ્‍વાસ્‍થ્‍ય, માળખાગત સુવિધા, માર્ગો, શૌચાલયો, હોસ્‍પિટલ, ચબૂતરા, કોમ્‍યુનિટી હોલ, સ્‍કૂલો વગેરેના નિર્માણ થયા છે. જોકે શ્રી નથવાણી કહે છે કે, આ મારા કાર્યોમાં દરેકનો ભરપૂર સહયોગ મળ્‍યો છે. છેલ્લે એટલું જ કહું છું કે, ઝારખંડ ભૂમિ એક અહેસાસ - અનુભૂતિ છે, જેને હું નિરંતર માણું છું. આ કારણે હું ઝારખંડ સાથે ભાવનાત્‍મક રૂપથી - લાગણીના બંધનોથી - આત્‍મિયતાના સંબંધોથી બંધાયો છું. પરિમલભાઇ નથવાણીની ઝારખંડ કર્મભૂમિ અને સેવાકાર્યો અંગે વધારે માહિતી માટે www. વેબ સાઇટનો સંપર્ક થઇ શકે છે.wish you all the Best- Ashok Hindocha

Don’t increase FDI in Telecom--BSNLEU-President VAN Namboodiri---inf. by Ashok Hindocha M-94262 54999

New post on VAN Namboodiri's Blog M -94262 54999 Don’t increase FDI in Telecom The reported proposal of the Department of Telecom (DOT) to increase the FDI from the present 74% to 100 % is completely against the interest of the country. Even with 74% FDI, the control of many telecom companies have already passed to the MNCs. The government is completely unable to control any of these MNCs. Income Tax notice for about 14,000 crore has been issued to Vodafone, but not only it has not paid the same, but is threatening the government that it will go to international arbitration. The Finance Minister has meekly proposed for conciliation to reduce the taxes, but Vodafone does not want even to pay a single paisa. The decision of the government that at least 30% of the telecom manufacturing should be from India will be a mirage if 100% FDI is allowed. All the international telecom companies have opposed the decision and are putting pressure on the management to drop it. What is the role of these telecom MNCs in the reported espionage of all communications by the US Intelligence Agency is still to come out. But there can not be smoke with out fire. The security of the country, domestic manufacture and R&D can not be put at the mercy of the telecom MNCs. If 100% FDI is allowed, within no time, all the Indian companies will be grabbed by the MNCs. The present proposal for 100% FDI in Telecom is to be strongly opposed and defeated.

Imp.Information And 78.2 IDA Fixation Order....inf. by Ashok Hindocha M-94262 54999

FORUM OF BSNL UNIONS/ ASSOCIATIONS FORUM OF BSNL UNIONS/ ASSOCIATIONS D-7, Telegraph place, Gole Market, New Delhi – 110 001. Circular 13thJune 2013 M-94262 54999 *78.2% IDA FIXATION ORDERS ISSUED BY DOT AND BSNL *INDEFINITE STRIKE BY BSNL WORKERS FROM 12THJUNE 2013 CALLED OFF *WARM GREETINGS AND THANKS TO THE BSNL EMPLOYEES Dear Comrades, Forum of BSNL Unions / Associations warmlly greets the BSNL workers for their steadfast and determined strugglles which compelllled the DOT and the BSNL Management to issue orders granting 78.2% IIDA fixation which is fulllly justified and which was pending settllement for a llong time despite an agreement with the BSNL Management one year back. Orders, both by DOT and BSNL, were issued on 10 th June 2013. The meeting of the Forum helld on 11 th June, after discussion unanimouslly decided to callll off the indefinite strike. Copy of the same signed by the Generall Secretaries is put in the websites of the unions/associations. The Back Ground Wage Revision for both Executives and Non-Executives in BSNL was to be impllemented with effect from 01-01-2007 as in other Centrall PSUs. As per Department of Publlic Enterprises (DPE) OM No. dated 2 nd Aprill 2009, 78.2% IIDA pay fixation with effect from 01-01-2007 was to be granted to the PSU emplloyees. However, since the Pay Revision was allready impllemented for the Executives as per 2 nd Pay Revision Committee before the issue of this order, they were granted onlly 68.8% fixation. IIn the case of Non-Executives, though the wage revision agreement was signed after the orders, the BSNL Management stubbornlly refused to impllement the same despite strong demand stating that 78.2% IIDA fixation has not been granted to Executives and ‘as and when BSNL management decides for 78.2% IIDA merger for executives, the same benefit willll be extended to the Non-Executives allso’. Thus both the Executives and Non-Executives were denied the 78.2% IIDA pay fixation. The BSNL management tried to justify the deniall of 78.2% IIDA fixation on the pllea of continued lloss to the company. But the fact is that the BSNL was in profit for allll the first 9 years tillll 2008-2009, and in2008-09, BSNL’s net profit was Rs. 574.85 crore, even after payment of taxes and Rs. 1272 crore before tax. Hence there was no justification for the pllea of BSNL management and fullll fixation shoulld have been granted then and there. Further, whille the justified demands of the Executives and Non-Executives were being denied one after another in the name of financiall difficullties, BSNL Management issued orders on 25-05-2012, for payment of allll allllowances as recommended by the VII Centrall Pay Commission to the IITS officers who are not absorbed and are on deputation to BSNL. This was a compllete discrimination against the Executives and Non-Executives compared to the IITS deputationists. IIt became cllear that the lloss to company was onlly a pllea to deny the justified demand of the workers. The discriminatory decision of the management created compllete unrest and strong resentment. The Forum of BSNL Unions / Associations discussed this issue in its entirety and came to the concllusion that this gross injustice cannot be tollerated. Accordinglly, the Forum served a strike notice for IIndefinite Strike with effect from 13 th June 2012. Massive Dharna was organised on 6th June which was successfulllly impllemented allll over IIndia. The workers enthusiasticalllly responded to the strike callll and made allll preparations for the same. After hectic discussions with the management, an agreement was signed on 12th June 2012 that 78.2% IIDA fixation willll be impllemented after approvall by BSNL Board, Chilld Care Leave willll be impllemented and a Committee willll be formed with regard to the superannuation benefits of the emplloyees who are recruited by BSNL. As per the agreement, the strike was deferred. BSNL Board approved the proposall for impllementation of 78.2% IIDA pay fixation and the same was sent to the DOT in September 2012 for approvall. Allll the queries raised by DOT were effectivelly repllied to by BSNL, but stillll no approvall was received.The continued dellay resullted in serious frustration and anger amongst the emplloyees. The Forum of BSNL Unions / Associations after thorough discussion decided to callll for agitationall programmes inclluding indefinite strike from 12th June 2013 against the non-impllementation of the one year olld strike- agreement. IIt was allso decided to organise Demonstrations on 22 nd May and Dharnas on 6 th June 2013 at C.O., Circlle, SSA llevells in preparation for the strike. Both the programmes were organised by the workers with massive participation and enthusiasm. The success of these programmes gave a cllear indication that the strike is going to be a big success. IIn between, the DOT unnecessarilly referred the issue to BRPSE. This was done with a cllear motive to dellay the settllement. IIt is the cllear stand of the Forum that the issue does not require the approvall of BRPSE, since BSNL has not been brought under its review. Orders issued IIn response to the strike callll given by the Forum, the Secretary DOT met the Forum lleaders, which was a turning point. He assured the Forum lleaders that he is positive about the agreement reached between the BSNL Management and Unions/ Associations. After that, things moved fast and the Minister Communications approved the proposall on 10 th June and on the same day, the DOT issued the Presidentiall Directive for impllementation of DPE OM dated 2 nd Aprill 2009 on 78.2% IIDA pay fixation. On the basis of the above, BSNL Corporate Office allso issued order for impllementation of the same. Strike Called Off The meeting of the Forum helld in the afternoon of 11 th June 2013, considering the fact that necessary orders have been issued, unanimouslly decided to callll off the IIndefinite Strike notified to start from 12 th June. The meeting allso thanked the DOT and BSNL Management for issue of the orders. The meeting especialllly appreciated the initiative taken by the CMD BSNL in this matter. Another order is to be issued by the DOT for the pensioners, retired before 01-01-2007 for grant of 78.2% fixation. This has allready been discussed by the Forum lleaders with the DOT, and is expected without dellay. Dear Comrades, This great achievement onIIDA pay fixation of 78.2% coulld be achieved onlly With the whollehearted support and active agitationall programme by the Emplloyees. Our demand and agitationall programmes have been fulllly justified. The agitation has shown to the management that allll the unions/associations Have come together to fight for the cause of the emplloyees. We congratullate Allll the lleaders and workers for their excellllent support in achieving the best resullt. Our Future Tasks Whille rejoicing in our victory, we are not shifting away from our main concern about the viabillity of BSNL and the need for a better service to the nation. The Forum has submitted a detailled Memorandum to the Group of Ministers on ‘Revivall of BSNL & MTNL’, which if accepted and impllemented willll surelly revive the company. We have requested the Circlle and SSA Secretaries to meet the Member/s of Parlliament in their area, furnish a copy of the Memorandum and request them to take up the issues with the Finance Minister, who is the Chairman of the GoM. Maximum propaganda amongst the subscribers shoulld be organised. Efforts shoulld be made to get maximum publlicity to our demands through the media, by issuing pamphllets, press rellease etc. We very wellll know that a change in the anti-PSU pollicy of the government and an efficient Management are important and we willll have to move in that respect allso.The Steell Authority of IIndia Ltd. (SAIIL), which was in lloss has come back and is revived. Air IIndia, which was in lloss, is gradualllly improving. Most of the Centrall PSUs are in profit. LIIC, another PSU, is the number one brand in the country with more than 70% of market share and allmost 100% satisfaction llevell. BSNL can allso rise to the occasion and reach the highest llevell of efficiency and improve market share and restore its past gllory.IIt is not easy, but once the workers are determined, nobody can stop them in their forward march. Within a few days, the Forum willll meet again and willll pllan our future activities to improve BSNL financialllly and allso provide the best service to the Nation. The present achievement shoulld strengthen our unity and capacity to fight for a better future for BSNL, its workers and the country. With Warm Greetings and Best Wishes, Yours Fraternalllly, M94262 54999
