UPDATE ON THE ISSUE OF ILLEGAL REVERSION OF MEMBERS
Assam Circle has taken a
U-turn on the issue of reversion of executives. The Circle management, which
was on the same page with the ill-fated executives in earlier legal process,
is now doing their best to justify the illegal reversion. This has forced
the Association to change its strategy and raised genuine questions on the
grave errors committed by the circle during implementation of Court order
and deliberate violation of Corporate office directives on the whole issue.
Circle Secretary writes to CGMT, Assam Circle demanding
a thorough inquiry into the whole episode of promotion of one group and
reversion of another and to undo
the misdeeds done by the officers at the helm of affairs.
Kind attention : All DS.....
CS requests all District Secretaries/Dist. Treasurers to clear CHQ Quota up to
August 2013 along with pending Building fund (Rs.500 each) and Legal fund
(Rs.200 each) by this month.
All Districts should also clear Circle quota up to August 2013 by this month.

Circle Secretary takes the pleasure to inform the members of Assam Circle that
with active support and persuasion from Com. General Secretary, the following
two pending cases have been successfully settled :
1. INVALID PENSION TO COM. NITUL HAZARIKA :
As you are all aware, beloved Com. Nitul Hazarika, SDE (E) has been suffering
from serious ailments and has become totally invalid to continue in service
and therefore requested for Invalid pension. This Association has done
everything possible to help the comrade and his family and in this endevour
all the comrades of Jorhat district lead by Com. H. P. Dutta, R. L Borah and
DS Jorhat, a few comrades from Guwahati and even some comrades from other
circles have extended helping hands setting a rare example of humanity and
brotherhood. Today we feel happy to inform you that BSNL Corporate office has
approved his Invalid pension case and the order also issued on 17-9-2013. This
Association would feel honoured if this small gesture could any way serve our
beloved comrade and his family.
2. Com. N. J. Kakati of Inspection Circle has been recently promoted from SDE
to DE (Adhoc) and was posted to West Bengal Circle. Whereas officers from
other circles come to North East on promotion to fill up the vacancies here,
the posting of Com. Kakati outside NE region was something unusual. This
Association took up the issue very seriously and finally the modified order of
posting has been issued from Corporate office on 16-9-2013, retaining him in
both the above cases, Com. General Secretary has wholeheartedly supported us
and we are extremely thankful to Com. K. Sebastin.

guidance in the way of exploring legal remedies from court, after going
through all the documents in the case.
Com. GS has assured Com. N J Kakati that the order modifying his place of
posting to Inspection circle on his promotion to DE (Ad-hoc) is expected early
