the Association was popularly known with the name as JETA subsequently JTOA (I)
representing the cadre of JE/JTO of DOT. With the tireless efforts of Com W.
Sheshagiri Rao, Group B status was awarded to JTOs, by the 5th CPC and with his
foresighted vision Association amended constitution so that JTOs and officers
promoted thereof can become the members of this Association. Also the name of
the association was changed to TEOA (I). In April 2003 a historic decision of
merger was taken by two Associations i.e. TEOA (I) and BSNLEA (I) at Kanyakumari
and the name was changed to Sanchar Nigam Executives’ Association (India).
The Association struggled
for many up gradations as far as the executives are concerned and finally got
beautiful and fruitful results thereof.
A few of them are enlisted as below:
The Association fought for up
gradation of pay scales from 1400-2600 to 1640-2900 for JTOs and got it. During
5th CPC, with the persuasion of association with DOT and members of pay
commission, the pay scale of JTO was upgraded from Rs.1640-2900 to Rs.2000-3500,
hence JTOs got the revised pay scale of Rs. 6500-10500 with group ' B' with
gazetted status. It also resulted into up gradation in pay scales of SDE and
DE. The Association also ensured SDEs scale of Rs. 7500-12000 which benefited
thousands of executives across the country. Moreover due to the persuasion of
our Association JTO recruitment rules were promulgated and recruitment of
thousands of outsider JTOs was done by BSNL.
2) On Formation of BSNL
our Association was fully determined to achieve better “ TERMS AND CONDITIONS
before the ABSORPTION for BETTER AND PROSPEROUS FUTURE” against the hurried and
shortsighted demand of adhoc amount of Rs. 2000/- without terms and conditions
made by other Association. To achieve the cause our brave comrades approached
various CATs and ultimately historic judgment was passed by the Principal Bench
CAT New-Delhi in parity with our demand, accordingly instruction was issued to
All concerned i.e. DOT / BSNL to go ahead in absorption with prior “TERMS AND
Once again In Sept. 2002
agitation was launched by our Association under ENC platform with charter of
demands including pay scales, Time Bound promotion, Service weight age, pension,
cadre review Recruitment of fresh JTOs etc. thus due to the successful
agitation, BSNL management & ENC made mutual agreement by which pay scale of
JTO, SDE, Sr. SDE and DE was revised with all the benefits of Time Bound
promotion. Now with the implementation of which our officers who are presently
retiring in DE's pay scale will retire in the selection grade of DGM.
3) Accordingly the absorption
process started by BSNL as per our CAT petition directives and terms conditioned
agreed with OUR ENC.
4) In last four years due to
the rigorous and keen interest of our Association more than 15000 JTOs are
promoted to SDEs, in the same way after amendment of our constitution to enroll
SDEs and DEs to TEOA(I) and BSNLEA(I) we started pursuing the promotion of SDEs
to DEs and the result is, in last two years more than 1500 SDEs were promoted to
Adhoc DEs which was not the case in last 7 to 8 years.
The Sanchar Nigam
Executives’ Association (India) is committed and will remain committed forever
for the cadre prospectus of our BSNL executives from Telecom, Civil,
Electrical, Accounts etc.
long live the SNEA
