11-02-2013 : Condolence
resolution on: Com. O.P. Gupta’s demise: The Extended National executive
Meeting of NFTE BSNL at Ongole (A.P.) on 4th February, 2013 Condole the
demise of Com. O.P. Guptaji (08-04-1922 to 06-01-2013) who was the symbol
of working class unity and the tallest leader of NFPTE and NFTE. He was
the first Secretary General of NFTE who successfully led the union to
victory in the first even membership verification held in 2002. He was
the main force behind the 3 days nationwide strike on the eve of corporatization
in 2000 which ultimately safeguarded the Government pension from consolidated
fund of India for lakhs of employees who had got transferred to BSNL on
01-10-2000. He was a genius and down to earth Comrade who understood the
aspirations and sufferings of the lowest employees. He thought ahead of
everybody and could foresee dangers and suggest proper wage and means
to overcome these. He was the architect of Time bound promotions and restructuring
of Cadres. He was responsible for the regularization of More than one
lakh employees on 30-09-2000 on the eve of corporatization despite ban
on recruitment since 1980. The extended executive records its appreciation
for his untiring work during the last 6o years in the service of P & T
and BSNL employees with the almost zeal and commitment. The fitting tribute
to the departed leader would be to work for strengthening the NFTE BSNL
and make it the first recognized union in BSNL after the 6th Membership
verification. Com. O.P. Gupta will be remembered by P & T workers and
BSNL employees for ever. The National executive record with proud that
Com. Gupta was the only leader in the country who was jailed for 14 months
of rigorous imprisonment just for signing the strike agreement in 1949.
He was man of the masses and loved by even those who opposed him on some
issues. His loss will be felt for ever and is not easy to fill that vacum.

Telecom Companies oppose move to bail out BSNL: Private mobile operators
have raised objections to a proposal of DOT to give financial support
to State-run telecom companies. The Department of Telecom has sought the
Cabinet’s approval for a Rs. 20,000-crore bailout package for Bharat Sanchar
Nigam Ltd and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd. The Department proposes to
waive the one-time spectrum charge and refund money for surrendered broadband
spectrum. BSNL wants to surrender broadband spectrum. BSNL wants to surrender
broadband spectrum (2300 Mhz band) in six circles including Karnataka,
Kolkata, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra. If the Cabinet accepts
this request, the PSU BSNL will get a refund of Rs. 6,724.51 crore. Supposed
to pay in upfront charge of Rs. 1,626 crore and an annual fee of Rs. 893
crore as one-time fee for excess spectrum beyond 4.4 Mhz. BSNL’s finances
have taken a turn for the worse with its income declining from Rs. 35,812
crore in 2008-09 to Rs. 27,934 crore in 2011-12. During this period, the
company’s bottomline changed from a net profit of Rs. 574 crore to a loss
of Rs. 8,851 crore. But the private operators, have opposed any support
by the Government. “Consideration of any such proposal is not permissible
as it will be in contravention of all tenets of policy, fair competition
and level playing field,” the two industry associations said in a letter
to Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal. (Based on business line report).

to BSNLEU: NFTE BSNL extends hearty greetings and congratulation to BSNLEU
for making efforts to get the BSNL’s own rules for recognition of non-executive
unions. Thanks a lot for this. The NFTE is fully committed for unity of
all non-executive unions to protect the BSNL and settlement of the significant
and important problems of the employees. Therefore, we are avoiding to
comment on the write ups regarding evolving of recognition rules. However,
it was NFTE which first demanded and persued for BSNL’s rules for recognition
of unions to protect crisis ridden PSU and future of the employees. The
Non-executive staff got raw treatment from the management on their issues
and problems due to lack of unity amongst us. This is reality. NFTE firmly
holds the view that the atmosphere of hatred and blame game must stop
in the larger interest to carry unity upto grass root level.
