Ref 2:  Our letter dated 12-01-2017 addressed to CGM-ChTD

Respected Madam,

In continuation of our earlier letters cited above (copies enclosed), I am constrained to  submit that there is a concerted effort to harass the Executives belonging to  AIBSNLEA in Central Area and our respected GM-Central is falling a prey to that, thereby leading to unrest amongst our cadre in this commercially important Sector of Ch.TD.

We have listed out a few of such incidents that has clearly established the biased attitude shown  only against our members in Central Area but still this tirade continues, the recent incident being getting an Administrative order from No.89,Millers Road for  shifting of an SDE (LA), Smt.S..Poongothai from HRD 5ESS Internal to NTN-RSU against her interest and her Request transfer is already pending for disposal at O/o AGM Admn Millers road. When there was an attempt to shift her earlier, we have brought the same to the notice of our CGM and our CGM was kind enough to restrict that proposal by prevailing upon the GM-Central on the importance of Switch Room activities in Central Area especially Haddows Road where numerous ISDN-PRI are working and also most importantly the FTTH is parented.

Our emergency Circle Office Bearers meeting held on 15th April 2017 to discuss mainly this issue has resolved to strongly condemn such unwarranted shifting of Executives. AIBSNLEA, Chennai Telephones is of the considered opinion that since our CGM has earlier functioned in Central Zone thereby having complete knowledge on the priorities involved in this commercially important Area, the importance of maintaining the Switches with sufficient Executives for enhanced Revenue, shall be better known to our CGM.

HRD 5ESS is located in 1st Floor  working with remote (RSU) with 1 SDE+ 1 SDE LA and no TTA & HRD OCB is in 5th  Floor working with 14 RSUs with working  strength of 1 SDE+1 SDE LA +No TTA .

 5ESS MSU Switch consists of 1 RSU, 7 DLC sites, 70 PRIs and FTTH Voice Provisioning for entire Chennai Telephone District. The commercial important PRI customers like NABARD, Income Tax, Sankara Nethralaya Eye Hospital, PARK Hotel, SBI, SAIL, BHEL and AMMA call centre. Major activity of the migration of the 5000 FTTH lines from Noida SS to Gurgaon SS is pending.

OCB Switch consisting of 9 RSUs, 12 DLC sites, 117 PRIs spread across various geographical locations. The Commercial important PRI customers like Apollo Hospital, MRF, PARK Hotel, Income Tax, SBI, Star Health (10 PRIs), SBI, SAIL, BHEL, AMMA call centre, Scope International and Indian Oil are served by OCB Switch.

Hence it was decided to request your kind intervention immediately and retain the same SDE LA  for maintaining  the highest Revenue earning Exchanges in Ch.TD in a smooth manner.      With warm regards,
