TRAI clears confusion over SMS limit, exempts certain services

Regulator TRAI has exempted various service providers, including the dealers of telecom operators, e-ticketing agencies and social networking sites, from the new limit of one hundred SMSes per day per SIM, which was imposed to block pesky calls and messages.

On 5th September, after much delay, Trai had come out with recommendations to stop pesky calls and text messages from 27th September, ordering that no access provider (operators) shall permit the transmission of more than 100 SMSes per day per SIM.

"Hereby directs all access providers to exclude the following persons from the limit of one hundred SMS per day per SIM -- dealers of the telecom service providers and DTH operators for sending request for electronic recharge on mobile numbers," Trai said in a statement on Tuesday.

The directive from the regulator had come in the wake of concerns raised by telecom lobby COAI on limiting the SMS entitlement per SIM to 100 per day.

Confirmation in Government Service – Service Matters

            Consequent on issue of Govt. orders, with effect from 1/4/88 confirmation will be made only once in the service in the entry grade, Confirmation de-linked from the availability of permanent vacancies in the grade. Therefore, an officer who has successfully completed the probation period may be considered for promotion

The Departmental Promotion committee will determine fitness for confirmation, and the confirmation orders issued based on DPC recommendations when the case is cleared from all angles.

When recruitment rules do not provide any probation period to the post to which the officer has been promoted (based on the confirmation in the entry grade after following DPC procedure), the officer thus promoted to the grade will enjoy all the benefits that are available to the officer confirmed in that post.

When probation period is prescribed for the higher post, the appointing authority should assess the performance of the officer and declare him fit to cross the probation period or otherwise revert to lower post if his performance is not satisfactory. Rigorous screening of performance is necessary as confirmation is done only in the entry grade.

As a result of introduction of one time confirmation as the entry grade, lien to hold substantive post has undergo change.

VRS is Dangerous to BSNL and Employees

VRS is Dangerous to BSNL and Employees

The BSNL Management supplied a copy of its VRS proposal to BSNL Employees Union on 20.09.2011 seeking its view on the proposal. The BSNL Employees Union as well as JAC have decided to go on struggle against the VRS, since it is against BSNL and employees. The following are the reasons for opposing the VRS.

1. VRS is bad in theory and failed in practice
 
VRS is bad in theory since it is in essence nothing but blaming the employees and the expenditure on their wages as responsible for the losses incurred by the Company. It Is based on the false presumption that by reducing the number of employees, the losses can be reduced and profits
can be revived. 3 rounds of VRS were already implemented in MTNL. But it resulted in further losses to MTNL. Thus VRS is bad in theory and failed in practice.

2. Large scale removal of one lakh employees from service

Since the removal of a small number of employees failed to save MTNL from losses, now the BSNL management proposes to remove employees in large number. Its proposal aims at removing one lakh employees from service, out of the existing 2,76,000 employees. This indicates a large scale attack on the employees.

3. It is not VRS but it is CRS

Fixing the target of removal one lakh employees in the name of VRS reveals that it is not voluntary and the employees will be coerced to take VRS till the target is reached. Therefore in practice it is CRS.
