During his stint as General Secretary and under his able guidance  we have been successful in saving our Internal Quota of JTO LDCE. I would like to take this opportunity to Congratulate Shri. Sachin Bhatt for being elected as All India Treasurer."


Dt 04.08.2009 Friends , SNATTA's alliance with the BSNLEU is from the last two verifications. SNATTA played a major role in the outcome of the results of the IVth verification. Our two main agreement with BSNLEU is 1) Reduction in the service condition to 5 years under 35% quota for JTO LDCE within a year of the agreement. 2) Conduct the JTO LDCE within a year of the agreement. Though the agreement was reached in the last verification the issue has been on the common agenda of SNATTA and BSNLEU for the last three years. I appreciate the concerns of the members of SNATTA as the issue has been lingered for too long for our comfort. SNATTA CHQ feels that any further delay in clinching the agreement with the BSNL Management in this issue would have no meaning for our members. We strongly desire from Dear Comrade VAN Namboodiri and Dear Comrade P. Abhimanyu to impress upon the BSNL Management in the forthcoming meeting of Standing Committee of National Council and put an end to the distressing situation of the TTA cadre.".............Dharmendra Verma, General Secretary.

Dt 06.07.2009 Dear Friends it has appeared that some of the Unions are circulating some sort of agreement form to be sent to CMD for the acceptance of 2nd Pay Revision on the lines of minimum fitment given to the Executives. It is instructed to all our members to remain vigil and not to sign any such document to support the negative propaganda. It is gross injustice to deny the non executive the higher fitment formula on the existing pay scale. The 30% fitment on existing pay scale would mean the difference between the Basic of TTA/SRTOA and JTO/JAO would become double. We should wholeheartedly support the United Forum of BSNL unions in the wage revision. If the periodicity of 5 years can be achieved then why can't the better fitment for Non Executives? Least we can fight.


Dt 06.07.2009  Full contributions towards SNATTA CHQ fund have been deposited by 1.

Dt   29.06.2009 A Special Leave Petition has been filed by BSNL Officers Association against our Court Case filed in the Hon. High Court of Chandigarh & Haryana. Friends, it is very essential for us to defeat this SLP in Supreme Court as this would be the last frontier to be won to remove the entire barrier in our career path. Conducting of JTO LDCE exam also very much depends up on the outcome of this SLP. The truth is on our side and God willing we will surely be able to remove this hurdle in the apex court as sooner as possible. The affidavit against the SLP will be submitted at the earliest. All the DRTTA’S of 2002/2007/2008 batch are asked to rise to the situation and make our association too strong to be defeated.


All the Circle Secretaries are asked to deposit Rs.10000/- (Ten Thousand Only) at least as the contribution towards SNATTA fund (CHQ A/c no 204010100060738 in AXIS BANK LTD, Rohtak, Haryana in the name of Sanchar Nigam Association of Telecom Technical Assistants) for Annual Membership fee+ Court case Contribution within week without fail.

Dt 05.06.2009 1. Today in Wage Committee meeting Shri. Hakam Singh raised the issue of Pension Scheme for direct recruittees in BSNL. The clarifications given by Shri Hakam Singh was very well taken by the Chairman, Wage Committee and he has assured to look into the details of the Employees Pension Scheme (EPS) under EPF in BSNL and within a week or fortnight BSNL Management will prepare a report regarding the Pension Scheme options in EPF and the same would be submitted before the Wage Committee. Friends the pension schem under EPF is a very contentious issue and we are hopeful that the Management will prevail over EPF and would ask for the fresh options from employees available under EPS.

2. It is also very reliably learnt that BSNL Management has sent the proposal for 5 year periodicity along with 30% fitment at par with executives to the DOT for approval.

3. The demand of staff side to give 5% annual increment to the Non Executives in the New Scale have also been considered by the Wage Committee.

4. Staff side also demanded that 2 additional increments be given in the New Scale on Time Bound Promotions.


Dt 05.06.2009 Central Coordinators or Circle Secretaries are advised to call Shri Hakam Singh, Wage Committee and Change of Designation Committee member for any details on Mobile No. 09990456343 when ever Shri Hakam Singh is in Corporate Office , New Delhi for CHQ work. No individual member should make a call to any CHQ member as it is practically impossible to answer individual calls. Do have forbearance.

Dt 03.06.2009  Comrade VAN Namboodiri writes to Dir (HR) BSNL to implement the recommendations of VIth CPC regarding Maternity leave and implementation of Child care leave for women in BSNL. The same was represented by SNATTA CHQ to Comrade VAN Namboodiri through email on 07.05.2009 and was also raised by Shri Hakam Singh in the National Steering Committee on 02.06.2009.

The proposal was very well defended by Comrade VAN Namboodiri and Comrade P. Abhimanyu in the meeting. There are round about 129 Cadres in BSNL and to change the designation of all of them would require a task. The meeting continues on 8th June 2009. SNATTA CHQ is firm on its commitment to change the Designation of TTA to a very respectable and a familiar one.

Dt 27.05.2009 Agenda for 21st National Council Meeting has been submitted to BSNL management by Comrade VAN Namboodiri.

CHQ respects the suggestions made by them and the decision of CHQ will be apprised soon.

Dt 02-05-2009 20:02 One Hour Walk out from duty/office on 04.05.2009.

We have been working tirelessly and diligently for BSNL and in the end we have been thrown a piece of cake and the chunk of it has been gulped by someone much unknown to us. It is very heartrending to see that our hard work and dedication towards BSNL has no meaning in the eyes of BSNL management. SNATTA CHQ urge upon each and every member to actively participate in the one hour walkout from duty/office on 4th May 2009.

United Forum of BSNL Unions has given call to BSNL employees to walk out from duty/office, for one hour from 1100 hrs to 1200hrs on Monday the 4th May 2009. Mobilize each and every member to give a fitting reply to the BSNL Management's high handedness.

Note:- Further action on this issue will be communicated later

Dt 30.04.2009 BSNL Management has once again overlooked the interests of Non Executives and unilaterally issued the orders on IR as Salary Advance equal to 4x basic pay as on 01.01.2009 . Click here for order. The meager Salary advance given shows the apathy of BSNL management towards the Non Executive employees. See for your self what BSNL wants to give to the Non Executives. It is very clear to every Non Executive that a JTO have got at the least Rs.100,000. Management is trying to fool them by citing the 40% (Rs.40000) arrears as the minimum increase given to the 9850 scale in the letter written by Dir HRD to Com. VAN Namboodiri. Letter of Dir HRD

30.04.09 BSNL has issued order for IDA increase of 0.5%, from 46.8% to 47.3% w.e.f. 01.04.2009. BSNL Lr.no.14-1/2007-PAT(BSNL) dated 29.04.2009.

Dt 29.04.2009 Dear Colleagues

BSNL Management Committee's arbitrary and vengeful decision to disapprove the agreement reached in NCM for reduction in qualifying service condition for JTO LDCE has been strongly protested by SNATTA CHQ. CHQ representatives have been constantly pursuing the case with the BSNLEU CHQ. A very strong resent was registered with Com. VAN Namboodiri and Com P. Abhimanyu. SNATTA CHQ has made written representation to the Hon. CMD and Dir HRD on this issue and sited the rulings of DoP&T regarding the reduction in the service conditions. We have been assured by Com. VAN Namboodiri and Com P. Abhimanyu of very early settlement of the issue. They have promised to strongly debate this issue in the NCM and would now demand to reduce the service condition to 5 years.

SNATTA CHQ has been pondering on this issue and is preparing a very strong strategy for agitation and protest. If needed, we will demonstrate our unity and strength to all the Unions and to BSNL Management also. All the District Secretaries are asked to contact their Central Coordinator or Circle Secretaries for future course of action.

 SNATTA CHQ is collectively keeping the tab on the developments and it is made very clear to our colleagues that we will leave no stone unturned to achieve our rightful place.

Be united and ready to fight for your right.

Note: Central Coordinators and Circle Secretaries check your SNATTA mail-id for future course of action.


Dt 29.04.2009 BSNL Management's adamant attitude towards the Non-executive employees in BSNL has resulted in stalemate in the Wage Negotiation. Being the better qualified and larger reach among the every level of employees it is bind duty of every SNATTA member to explain each and every non executive employee about the negative attitude of the BSNL management and genuineness of our demands.

In the Wage Committee meeting held today Management Came prepared with the formula for less than 30% fitment for 5 years Wage agreement. The Union side categorically rejected the proposal & again reiterated its firm stand on 5years wage periodicity with fitment formula at par with top executives. On IR management proposed 3 times the current basic to which the Union side demanded that IR should be substantial amount. Management didn't seem to be at all serious on the proposals of the Union side. The callous attitude of the Management was strongly rebuked by the Union Side and the Management was clearly apprised that the Unions will resort to all the available Trade Union actions to achieve the just rights of the Non-executives. SNATTA members are asked to prepare for the sustained  struggle under the BSNLEU alliance to achieve the best wage agreement for the Non-executives.
