Are we digging trenches by incurring crores of rupees for our compitators to lay their pipes as charity/ for free of cost ?
There are some instances. CS SNEA writes to CGM/GM STP to assertain the details. (View letter) DS/COB/members are requested to inform us if any such cases are available in your area. We have to plug these leakages otherwise these people will lay HDPE in the name of missing link but not energise them because these trenching is rather urgent for our compitators but not for us. Some more photos will be published later.

It is to be noted here that when such instances are there advance cheques will be given to the hospital authorities if the patient is a top officer.

Who is at fault, we the employees or the management ? We are proud that BSNL broadband has tremendous demand. It is shame on our part that we are not able to provide the Type II modems. For more read...
Shimoga News: Today GM Shimoga Shri Radhakrishna was kind to hold meeting with our comrades of SNEA Shimoga. The discussions were co-ordeal and we hope fruitful outcome..
Kolar organisational action:
Brave comrades of Kolar have continued their protest by wearing black badges. But GM Kolar doesn't even shown any curtesy of discussion so far but trying to adopt the atmosphere of unwarranted tension and not ready to adopt proper HR applications.
JAC has to stay on course and get united:
JAC fundamentally came into existence in 2007 to launch broad based and sustained struggle on issues of policy of the government and the BSNL management. The struggle started on the issue of cancellation of 45.5 m GSM lines.
Over a period of time, JAC lost its objectivity and focus in terms of a serious drift on issues of policy. Today BSNL is bleeding because the government has abdicated all the policy commitments that BSNL is entitled to, namely, abolition of ADC, USOF, Rural service compensation, refund of spectrum charges for giving BSNL non standard BWA spectrum (Rs 8300 crores), payment of pension by BSNL on actual basic, ITS absorption, so on and so forth. Then there are critical policy issues pertaining to BSNL management i.e procurement of equipment, introducing new business mechanisms and processes to bolster growth of BSNL, greater accountability, performance based HR policies etc. etc.
Unfortunately, these issues have gone out of sight of JAC and unless these issues are addressed through unending, protracted and sustained struggle, struggle on other issues have virtually no meaning because other issues will get addressed once policy issues are attacked comprehensively. Hectic political and media support is needed and this support will be forthcoming once policy issues are focused and a sustained struggle is launched on those issues, whereas support will be completely absent on other issues.
Besides, JAC has gone considerably weak since two affiliates (NFTE and FNTO) have moved out for whatever reasons. Almost a parallel JAC is functioning which is counterproductive and undesirable. Weaknesses in JAC have become quite pronounced after the latest membership verification. Extraordinary maturity at this critical hour when there is a big question mark about bread and butter of lakhs and lakhs of workers has to be displayed by one and all to forge complete unity. This is really no time for petty politicking and scoring of points. And if the leadership of trade unions do not rise to the occasion by bidding good bye to internal squabbles and settling of scores, posterity will never forgive them for being extremely narrow minded and peevish
JAC has to undergo drastic transformation in prioritizing issues, deciding strategies, getting political and media support, project essentially issues of policy and finally making it once again formidable force that it emerged in 2007.
This is without prejudice to anyone, and SNEA(I) cannot and does not escape its share of responsibility in taking JAC to its present position. Thus JAC needs immediate course correction in raising and struggling intensely on issues of policy and injecting new life. SNEA(I) shall unquestionably continue to remain an integral part of JAC.
As per the CHQ call we are NOT PARTICIPATING in the 14th Sept Dharna Programme of JAC....
CS Com S B Nagavi along with AS Com Balakrishna Aithal met CGMT Karnataka Shri P Raghavan yesterday and once again protested the biased high handed action of GM Kolar on our JTOs and pleaded for the intervention of circle administration. We have registered our strong protest with the managment. Sr GM Admn Shri R Chandramouli was also present during the discussion.
Comrades of Kolar are on protest wearing BLACK BADGES from yesterday. SNEA Karnataka strongly supports the justified fight of Kolar comrades..Similar sort of harassment is once again started by GM Shimoga.
We may be compelled to start state level agitation if Karnataka Circle fails to curb these violations of transfer policy by the SSA heads..

Comrades of Kolar on Agitational Path:
SNEA Kolar has issued notice of organisationl action on the biased and high handed acts of GM Kolar. For notice Click here...
CS has met Shri N R Natarajan GM Kolar twice and appealed to withdraw the unwarranted transfer order issued to our JTO. But GM Kolar being vindictive on our members not ready to do justice, instead threatening to take disciplinary actions on the JTOs who are working very hard.
CS appraised the issue to CGMT Karnataka Shri P Raghavan and circle administration also. It appears that GM Kolar is not in a mood to listen to the advices. Compelled by the biased action, SNEA Kolar has left with no other option other than organisational action. SNEA condemns the biased action of GM Kolar.
The said Shri Natarajan while working as GM Tuticorin had done same sort of harrassment to our SNEA member there. Members of SNEA Tuticorin went on Mass Medical Leave for ten days and Corporate Office had to interfere to resolve the issue.
Circle/CHQ will fully support the action till we achieve justice..
All District Secretaries/Circle Office Bearers are requested to be fully prepared for organisational action throughout the circle if situation warrants....

Circle Organisation is thankful to comrades of HASSAN..
