    • Brief update on the JTO RR-14 case filed at Ernakulam :

      2018-02-17 14:22:54

      It is a well known fact that JTO RR -14 was made with an intention to degrade the JTO cadre with regard to Pay & Status. AIGETOA was the only association which opposed this degradation. While AIGETOA wanted to incorporate E2 for JTOs, all others agreed for E1 and thus officially JTOs scale was degraded to E1A to E1.

      Soon after, AIGETOA filed a legal suit at Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam and started fight for pay and status protection of JTO Cadre through legal means also.

      We were able to get stay from Hon'ble Ernakulam CAT on Clasue -10 of JTO RR Which states retrospective implementation of Pay & Status of already recruited JTOs can't be made effective.

      Thereafter, we filed another rejoinder in the same case for getting the direction of the court for upgrading E-2 Scale for JTOs in JTO RR 2014 also as BSNL has approved E-2 scales for JTO/JAO/Equivalent.

      Presently, reply of BSNL is awaited on our rejoinder to get the E2 scale which will be beneficial for entire JTO batches (especially all JTO batches from 2007 onwards including latest LICE JTOs of 2013,14 and DR JTO 2017).

      We will continue to fight for the status of the Cadre and ensure that E2 scales becomes a reality for the JTO/JAO/Equivalent.

      The cases filed at Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh and Hon'ble Ernakulam CAT are very crucial for obtaining E2 Scale for all JTOs.

      The cases may take some time but we are very sure that our contention for E2 Scale for JTO/JAO/Equivalent Cadre and E3 for SDE/AO/Equivalent Cadre has merit and we will come up with flying colours.

      We seek the support of all in this endeavour.

      Legal Battle for Pending justified SAB Benefits for BSNL Recruits

      AIGETOA Members filed a legal suit requesting for the long pending SAB benefits for BSNL recruits at Honourable CAT, Ernakulam.

      The grievances are related to the denial of superannuation benefits in BSNL in line with the directions of DPE/DoT - Govt of India i.e. 30 Percent SAB from date of joining and creation of Post Retirement Medical Benefit Fund as defined contribution

      The case came up for hearing today and the respondents have been directed to file their reply.

      Our association was continuously pointing that, in CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 Rule 37A - Sub Rule (23) clearly states that BSNL shall devise it own pension scheme and make arrangements for funding and disbursing the pensionary benefits for its directly recruited employees. This was denied till 5/5/2016 and then only a part is allowed (3%) further a mere increase to (2%) from 1/4/2017, due to various organisational efforts from this association, in tandem with others. It is worth mentioning here that the BSNL recruited employees, who are recruited as Public Sector employees, has administrative and service guidelines different from that of DoT absorbees.

      The second PRC streamlined the Super annuation Benefits as defined contribution to 30% of Basic + DA and salary package implementation in a stage wise manner where retiral benefits stand above Perks & allowance realisation. In BSNL the defined Contribution towards SAB was confined to 16.8% - i.e.12% towards EPF and 4.8% towards gratuity initially and has been enhanced now with 5% as Pension scheme called Superannuation Fund - which should be effectively from date of joining. Astonishingly, rest 8.2% is still in darkness. The matter was, therefore, being taken up continuously by AIGETOA alone from the Day-1 and collectively further, still we have miles to go to get the things in true spirit. In between, many of BR brotheren met untimely death, without the rightful due realisation which is very much painful to each one of us.

      We are sure that the legal battle along with organisational support from each of BSNL recruits and our well wishers will lead us to the accomplishment of genuine rights which has been delayed badly.

      The PRMB envisaged in line with SAB, should be a defined contribution scheme - which BSNL is yet to create.The defined contribution scheme is the way to ensure the delinking from company status/health wrt to employee retiral life.

      The fight is to provide for 30% of the basic pay + Dearness Allowance towards the superannuation benefits head viz EPF, Gratuity, PRMB and Pension scheme as defined contribution with effect from the date of joining of the respective for BSNL recruits; We Appeal all BSNL recruits to be a part of this unified battle in the respective fronts.

      Dear Friends, AIGETOA is in receipt of the Affidavit filed by Secretary DoT in Hon'ble CAT Chandigarh wherein it has been stated that E1A scale was not for BSNL recruited Executives and they should have been given E1 scale while the PO issued by DoT in the year 2003 states that the replacement scale of Rs. 6500/- for BSNL recruited JTOs will be as per the presidential orders dated 28.07.2003.

      We shall be submitting our reply to the affidavit wherein we shall be presenting the facts before honorable court to counter the arguments put forward by DoT. We would like to clarify that E2 pay scales for the JTO Cadre and E3 Pay Scale for SDE cadre is our right and AIGETOA is fully determined to take this issue to its logical conclusion and we are not going to rest till we achieve our rightful due for the Whole BSNL Recruited Cadre. We have already taken up the matter of making E2 Scale for the JTO in JTO RR case filed by AIGETOA which if won is going to pave the way for introduction of E2 Scale in JTO RRs.

      From the Reply of DoT, it is clearly evident that path is very tough and at this juncture, the need is to remain united and extend cooperation to each other if we are really interested in resolving the long pending HR issues of BSNL recruits, we will have to move united and speak in a single voice.
