"ITS Repatriation Issue"
The Circle Secretary extends thanks and congratulations to the entire membership of Assam Circle for their wholehearted support and participation in all the programs so far launched by CHQ and specially the week-long Hunger Strike from 29th October .
The Forum is eagerly waiting to see the outcome of the case pending in Hon'ble Delhi High Court on 7th November. If the contempt being committed by the BSNL management continues further even after 7th November order, there is possibility of launching Total and Indefinite Strike after Diwali. Members are requested to keep ready for the final battle and for any eventuality.
Hon. High court of Delhi briefly heard the matter on 31st Oct relating to ITS repatriation. Senior counsel representing BSNLEU, SNEA(I) and AIBSNLEA informed the bench that he representing thousands and thousands of absorbed employees who are fully qualified, talented and competent enough to maintain telecom operations in BSNL, even better than unabsorbed ITS who lack commitment and sense of belonging to the company. Senior counsel pleaded that he be given an opportunity to argue the case on merits. After the brief arguments by our counsel, junior counsel representing the UOI pleaded for passing over of the matter since ASG was not available. When the case came up for hearing in the afternoon junior counsel informed the bench that ASG was held up in some other bench and sought adjournment. Bench however adjourned the matter to 7th November only and directed UOI to file its reply by that date.(1.11.2012)
Comrades, this is the last and deciding struggle on the issue of ITS repatriation and future existence of executives in the company. Keep the movement going on in full force.

ITS Issue ..
IA filed by BSNL management in Hon'ble Delhi HC came up for hearing to-day, 1st
Oct. 2012. BSNL prayed for extension of time against the order for release of
non-optee ITS officers by 30th Sept. 2012. The HC has not issued any order for

officers are continuing in BSNL quite illegally. Our agitation program will
continue as scheduled. CS extends thanks to all the members for participating in
