HAPPY NEWS TO ALL OJTOs OF KERALA CIRCLE..
Today The Hon’ble CAT Eranakulam pronounced orders in favour of OJTOs on OA 1022/2012 and a series of connected cases filed by them through Adv V Sajith Kumar against a number of orders issued by BSNL management so far regarding the over pay and recovery. The Hon’ble court admitted the merits in our applications and did not allow any discrimination on executive pay scale and set aside all the arbitrary orders passed so far by BSNL Kerala Circle management to implement an inferior executive pay scale to those who officiate in executive cadre from a non executive cadre. There fore, as long as FR 22 (1) a (1) is availed by OJTOs no question of lesser executive pay. As such our next aim should be to protect the on going FR 22 (1) a (1) case at Hon’be High Court of Kerala.
LATEST POSITION OF OJTOs REGULARIZATION
It is learned from reliable sources that our file already moved for creation of supernumerary posts. Now it is with GM(Legal). Then will be send to Management Committee. We hope that the supernumerary posting order will be issued soon. We have requested to create the supernumerary order in continuation to the already existing 3500 posts. The seniority would be fixed according to the position in the combined waiting list. We believe that this is the only one practicable solution at this juncture and would be an amicable compromise with out provocations to other groups of employees.
WHY SUPERNUMERARY POSTING..??
1) It is true that there were 11326 out side quota vacancies in DoT during the formation of BSNL. Diverting these vacancies for up gradation of OJTOs may attract new court cases resulting further delay of our posting.
2) We fear that further delay will be resulted if we go for amendment of RR 2001. Amendment of RR 2001 with ‘deemed to have been qualified’ is a good but rather old concept.
At this present scenario no one can file and get admit a case against ‘Supernumerary posting’. OJTOs Association Circle Co Coordinators from all over India have preferred ‘Supernumerary posting’, soon after receiving the disposal order of COCP. BSNL top management has agreed to this suggestion and file is in front of GM ( Legal ) and after getting approval from management committee order will be issued within days. So our OJTO friends are requested to have discussion with our association leaders before they go for individual adventures attempts. It has come to the notice of the association that such irresponsible and dangerous attempts are being done knowingly or unknowingly by some of our OJTO friends.Such friends are once again requested to stop it immediately to avoid further delay in our posting.We have taken a lots of pain and spend a large amount of money to get the case filed by Kerala OJTOs admitted in Hon’ High Court of Punjab and Haryana to dispose COCP according to our interests. The COCP was not simply dropped as what is believed by others. It was a long fight. Four delegates from AP headed by Mr. Kabeerdas were eye witness for the final legal war on16/07/2013 in that court. The petitioners tried their level best to continue the COCP projecting many reasons like Karnataka exam stay, Result stay in many circles, Earlier finding of the same court of contempt on supernumerary posting etc.. some how we could overcome all this hurdles. Now every one is bound to show maturity to make use of it.
