BSNL urges the telecom department to deploy adequate number of senior ITS officers

BSNL urges the telecom department to deploy adequate number of senior ITS officers

State-owned telecom firm BSNL has urged the telecom department to deploy an adequate number of senior staff in order to ensure uninterrupted service to its customers. The company has also rolled out a voluntary retirement scheme to reduce the number of employees and related expenses. The firm has urged the requirement of ITS officers.

BSNL also has raised concerns before the Department of Telecom about favorable orders being issued by it for deputation of some employees to other organizations, which is creating indiscipline among certain quarters of the deployed officers."BSNL is passing through a crisis situation where manning all the key managerial position is the need of the hour for ensuring uninterrupted service to valued customers in the best business interest of the company,"BSNL Human Resource Director ArvindVadnerkar stated.

"When BSNL needs Grade A level officers to man important position, the management should have not offered them VRS. Instead of demanding ITS officers from the DoT, BSNL should send back around 550 ITS back to the department. This will help them in saving of over Rs 500 crore," ITS Association President PK Jain said.

With this move, BSNL will be having the highest number of employees who are accepting VRS and such a tendency of circumventing orders of competent authority in BSNL shows growing evidence of indiscipline among certain quarter of deployed officers.
