Mr. Jatin Das has been released from Raiganj on 13-Sep-14 to join his new assignment at Kolkata which had been possible only by the joint effort of AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA. We would like to extend our heartiest thanks to AIBSNLEA and we hope to get the same kind of support throughout West Bengal.
Option called today for Darjeeling and Gangtok from longest stayee list. If no option received within 15 days, it is mentioned that senior most SDEs will be posted to those tenure places. AIGETOA is constantly trying to implement the longest stayee list so that executives posted in tenure/ rural/ remote places for a long time can get their choice of posting. Many executives are enjoying their home place for more than 25 years in many places including Kolkata but Circle management is unable to implement longest stayee list due to other associations. Tenure places and most of the SSAs are running with acute shortage of executives and places like Kolkata, Siliguri have large of executives. Don't you think uniform distribution of executives are somewhat required for efficient running of the circle?

In the inaugural address CP AIGETOA Prashant Jain briefed about the recent developments that have taken place in New Delhi at CHQ level and about the alliance formation between AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA for upcoming executive association referendum to be held in December.
Shri Mahaldar in his address emphasized the need to unite for the welfare of BSNL and suggested that we should concentrate on BSNL First now since two big executive association have come on a single platform. It will not only strengthen and resolve the issues of executives , but also will streamline processes to speed up the recovery of BSNL , which is facing a difficult situation .
Shri Amar Mondal, JAO EZBC asked why despite having huge infrastructure BSNL is not in the top telecom service provider of the country, he reinforced the views that this alliance will boost unity amongst executives and will motivate each of us to perform with more enthusiasm and sincerity.
Shri Srijib Rai, SDE EZBC conveyed that this unity will change the destiny of our company which is going through a torrid time and we as employees are not even sure that whether we will get the next month salary or not . He said that without unity survival of BSNL seems like a distant dream and welcomed the decision of both the association to come together for not only the welfare of associations but also to improve the chances that our company will reinvent itself and come out of blue it has been facing for the last few years.
CS AIGETOA Shri Subhasish Paul insisted that due to this alliance executive unity will improve and local issues will be easily resolved as their won’t be any difference of opinion between these two executive associations. The presence of very experienced officers will be a morale booster for the direct recruited executives who has been badly exploited due to political conflict of interest and alien management.

Shri Sanat Kumar Sen, SDE (Trans) and Branch Secretary AIBSNLEA said that he is happy that AIGETOA and AIBSNLEA will be fighting together the executive association verification process in future and experience of AIBSLEA and Energy in AIGETOA will form a lethal alliance.

All concerned are requested to pursue that the report is sent timely and none of the eligible names are missed out.
CS write to CGMT for the Non forwarding/ Delay in sending option applications of JTO/ SDEs, WBTC to concerned circles.
Options called for various places under NCNGN circles but till date no applications has been forwarded by the circle administration. In spite of the fact that concerned SSAs/ Units have forwarded the applications about 2-3 weeks back to circle office, candidates are being given lame excuses like GM (HR) is out of station and the decision to forward will be taken only once he will be back from leave. Needless to say that such delay even after passing last date will render the whole exercise useless.
