14 STS posts sanctioned for Chennai Telephones . Order No.2-3/2002/TE-I dated 30-5-2003.>>>
STS post creation of Chennai telephones has taken the Assn. a great deal of effort and struggle since Dir(F) categorically denied post creation stating excess posts in Chennai TD and refused to clear the files until the KPMG norms were released. Assn. however prevailed over the negative attitude and the justified posts have seen the light of the day.
Inter Circle request transfers: The first batch of orders has been released, a couple more are in the pipe line. However all cases of request transfers in which the concerned officers have completed two years of service and their applications have been routed through proper channel which do not find a place in the released lists may immediately report the matter to their Circle Secretaries who in turn will intimate the CHQ for immediate corrective action. Any lapse in this regard may prove very costly since the CHQ will not be able to interact with the concerned officers for want of required information

Our GS Com.G.L.Jogi along with other office bearers  met Shri.Bala Saheb Vikhe Patil, Hon’ble Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises at the appointed time. The Hon’ble Minister received our representatives very cordially and held positive discussions with them. The Hon’ble Minister told our leaders that he was sick for over ten days and could not go through any files. He also promised that he would take immediate action on our file. In the meanwhile action has already been initiated at the Minister's office and a draft is ready to put up to him for his approval.
The BSNL payscales has never ever been referred back to the DOT by either the Hon. Minister of  Heavy Industries& Public Enterprises or the DPE. In fact the minor query raised by Hon.Minister of HI & PE has been conclusively replied by the Secretary DPE some 20 days back. The latest statement by TESA on their Website about the query, reply by DOT etc. reveals their total lack of awareness or involvement in the IDA pay scale issue. Their attempt to confuse the members with explicit lies is a futile attempt to take mileage out of the situation. Our GS met Member (Service) on 13-05-2003. During the meeting the member (Ser) categorically informed him that before the Chairman Telecom Commission left the Country on foreign tour he spoke to the Secretary DPE on the payscale issue. Secretary DPE informed him that there is absolutely no problem and it is matter of the Hon.Minister of  HI & PE affixing his signature on the concerned file which could happen any moment.
