Com. Samir Choudhary, Circle Secretary A&N Circle in his keynote address while welcoming Com. GS discussed the issue related to A&N Circle& CHQ level. He explained that A&N Circle is facing acute shortage of executives in all the discipline.  On tenure transfers, substitutes are not being posted to A&N Circle hence executives are facing difficulties in getting relieved. He also apprised regarding non relieving of executives of Civil Wing, who have been transferred on tenure by Chief Engineer Civil WB Circle Kolkata & now BSNL Corporate Office has changed the reporting of A&N Circle Civil Wing to Chennai Chief Engineer Civil to technical control. It has caused the problem. He requested CHQ intervention. He also requested to expedite CPCs from JTO to SDE, SDE to DE, DE to DGM, JAO to AO, AO to CAO, CAO to DGM(F), JTO(C/E) to SDE(C/E), SDE(C) to EE(C) etc and requested to upgrade the post of PA to CGM A&N Circle to the grade of PS. He also requested  for consideration of pending tenure transfer cases etc.

Com. GS in his address extended sincere thanks to Com. Circle President & Circle Secretary for arranging Special General Body meeting on short notice in a grand manner. He congratulated all the executives for making A&N Circle a profit making Circle. He also discussed the importance of A&N state in safe guarding in the interest of Nation. He appreciated the efficient mobile service in A&N Circle in comparison to other private operators.  Com. GS discussed in detail regarding viability of BSNL i.e. absence of Govt. support & lack of interest of BSNL management to safe guard the interest of BSNL & its executives. He expressed resentment against arbitrary notification of intermediatory E1A & E2A pay scales by DoT,  which has lowered the pay scales of JTO/SDE equivalent executives. Also killing of the issues i.e. Rs. 22820/- pay fixation case of JTOs/JAOs post recruited 2007 and CPSU cadre hierarchy as recommended by KHAN Committee. He explained that how BSNL management in a calculated & strategic manner has buried the issues. Similarly, many other important HR issues i.e. E1+5 advance increment, diversion of 50% MT quota CAO posts to seniority quota, non- modification of SDE RR, E5 to E6 pay fixation to DGM(Adhoc) etc. are pending for the last one & half year for want of BSNL's Board approval. All CPCs are held up on the pretext of pending court cases but no sincere efforts are being made by the BSNL management to resolve the issue.

AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA & AITEEA under banner of United Forum launched agitation programme in the month of Dec., 2016 for the settlement of these important issues and with the assurance given by the BSNL management, the agitation was deferred. Thereafter BSNL management immediately victimized the office bearers & the members of these associations by issuing memorandum & salary deduction making dias-non. Unfortunately this act of BSNL management was supported by some executive associations, which has weakened the unity of executives in BSNL. He suggested that in BSNL there should be only one executive association to fight with the management & to safeguard the interest of BSNL community. He further extended sincere thanks to A&N Circle for organizing the meeting in a nice manner. Com. GS suggested merging of all associations in a single association for the unity of BSNL's executive & to fight against management to safeguard the interest of BSNL executives.

Com. R. Chandrashekaran,  DGM(IFA) extended vote of thanks. Dinner followed.
