focus for the next three years is as follows.

1. Make the organization fully profitable in another three years. Intervene in Government policy making with appropriate suggestions to protect the public sector against intrusion, disinvestment and encroachment and by this to ensure job security to the young comrades recruited by BSNL and DoT.
2. Emphasis to be laid on modern Management with greater role and involvement of the middle management.
3. A responsible, professional and corruption-free top management which has stakes in the welfare of the Company and only the Company. Deputation of ITS from DoT into BSNL should end. Legal and organizational actions will be pursued vigorously.
4. No subsidiaries by breaking BSNL into pieces.
5. Start preparations for 3rd PRC due in 2017, fully focusing on the growth of the company.
6. Implementation of 30% superannuation benefits in respect of Direct Rect BSNL employees and Executives in particular as per DPE guidelines.

7. Implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3, ----, E7 w.e.f 01.01.2007 for the Executives in BSNL. The disparity in pay between the Executives recruited prior to and after 01.01.2007 to be resolved.

9. Introduction of LDCE in AO promotions also. Conduct of LDCE on year to year basis till Time Bound Functional promotion is implemented.
10. Introduction of Time Bound Functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy in BSNL with strong focus on performance. It should not be linked with existing seniority or availability of posts. Evolve a fast track mechanism in CPSU cadre hierarchy itself for faster promotions to fill up the Top management positions in future from among the internal candidates.
11. Resolution of EPF anomalies, centralized EPF payment at least Region wise, exploring the possibility of switching over to “Full Pension option”.
12. Association stands fully committed to safeguard legitimate interests of SC/ST Comrades in accordance to the provisions of the constitution and orders of DOP&T issued from time to time with regard to their seniority, promotional quota, postings etc.
13. All consequential benefits of 78.2% IDA merger from 01.01.2007 like HRA, PUC, arrears etc. for the pensioners, actual benefits from 01.01.2007.

23. Settlement of long pending pay anomalies i) Pay fixation as per FRSR during officiating promotion on implementation of TBP ii) Antedating of increment iii) Senior drawing less pay than Junior after promotions.

 The purpose of the verification process is that it should ultimately lead to unity of all Executives. Present multiplicities, that serves only to aid and abet the interests of the Management should totally come to an end. The quest for unity has been mooted and fostered by the JTOA and other well-meaning Associations, which has fructified and culminated in the formation of SNEA with a vast majority of the executives coming under its banner. The legacy of this Association dates back to the beginning of organized movements in the erstwhile P&T Dept. And the result of such coming together
is there for all to see. Nobody can dilute it or hide it because it has been the beacon shining in all directions. Our predecessors have handed over this shining torch to us. We cannot betray them. On the contrary, we should and will do justice to each drop of sweat and blood that they have shed for us- for the posterity. That we know requires hard work – hard work that include struggles, sweat and even blood. And that is what they have taught us not by precepts but by practice -yes, practice unparalleled, never found in any other book but in the book that was written only by them in their own inimitable style. Be sure that this is not for the weak-hearted.

If you believe that you have the right mettle, right fiber or at least the right inclination, jump on to the bandwagon -come let us write history on the murals of time and defeat the divisive forces that play into the hands of the authorities. You will be remembered not for flattering the Management but for fighting on the side of the common Executive.

Your vote can be decisive Are you on the right side Examine your conscience Exercise your franchise
