Meeting with Director (HR), BSNL Board, New Delhi:
GS, President met Director (HR), BSNL Board and expressed serious resentment against non holding of CPCs to fill up the vacant Group-‘A’ and Group-‘B’ equivalent posts in BSNL and demanded that before notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy all the existing executives in JTO/JAO, SDE/AO and DE/CAO equivalent cadres should be promoted to the next higher vacant posts under the existing RRs. Non holding of CPCs before implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy will cause serious frustration and resentment among the existing executives who are waiting their due promotions for the last many years. Director (HR), BSNL Board immediately called GM (Pers.) and discussed the matter in detail. The cadre wise details are as under:-

She categorically mentioned that in my family I can’t see that some persons are happy and some others are unhappy and demoralized. GS AIGETOA assured Director (HR) that by tomorrow the court case in Hon’ble CAT Allahabad will be withdrawn.

Promotion from CAO to DGM (Adhoc) : We requested to fill up 40 DGM (F) vacant posts by granting relaxation of one year services to the CAOs not having requisite service experience for the promotion to grade of DGM. Director (HR) assured an early action in this regard.
