Sub: – Urgent need to relax the ban imposed on Compassionate Ground Appointments – req.
Ref: – Corporate Office letter no.BSNLCO-A/15(27)/1/2022-ESTAB dated 07.03.2022.
With reference to the letter cited above, we would like to bring the following to your kind notice, for favour of necessary action.
The BSNL Management vide it’s letter no. 273-18/2013/CGA/Estt-IV dated 09.04.2019 had already imposed a ban on Compassionate Ground Appointments up to 31.03.2022. This has caused severe hardship to the families of the employees who had died in harness. BSNLEU has continuously been demanding that the ban on Compassionate Ground Appointments should be lifted.
However, vide letter cited under reference, the Corporate Office has communicated the decision of the BSNL Board, to extend the ban on Compassionate Ground Appointments indefinitely beyond 31.03.2022.
As per our information, around 230 Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL had died due to Covid-19. Some more employees had also died in accidents, while on duty. It is the duty of the BSNL Management, to ensure a permanent relief to the families of those deceased employees, by providing jobs under compassionate ground.
In view of the foregoing, we earnestly urge upon you to kindly revisit this issue and to take necessary steps, for lifting the ban that has been imposed on the Compassionate Ground Appointments.
