The arguments on JTO(T) to SDE(T) case continued for the three days on 15, 16 and 17th Feb.2017 at Hon’ble High Court Ernakulam. The matter was related to three writ petitions, it was heard in detail by the Senior Counsel. From BSNL side, Sh. R.D. Aggarawalla, Senior Advocate from New Delhi appeared for all the 3 days. The arguments concluded on 17th Feb.2017 evening and the Hon’ble High Court reserved the case for pronouncing judgment.
One Association’s Advocate wanted to remand to case to be heard again in the Hon’ble CAT Ernakulam but BSNL’s Sr. Advocate Sh. R.D. Aggarawalla opposed of remanding the case in view of further delay the case. He pleaded that there is acute stagnation in the career progression of JTOs and in BSNL field units the work is suffering due to the shortage of SDEs/SDOs. Hon’ble High Court appreciated the pleading and the case could be saved from remanding further to Hon’ble CAT Ernakulam.
