This corrupt and unjust system to be changed

Contract workers are ruthlessly being exploited. A Data  Entry Operator is being paid a monthly wage of Rs.7,000; a Lift Operator Rs.5,000 and a 24 hours
House Keeping Worker Rs.4,000.They are eligible  about double the amount as per Gazette Notification by Labour Ministry.
What is happening in BSNL? Why BSNL is not ensuring Minimum Wage to its contract workers? Is the Principal Employer, BSNL,  sleeping, or feigning sleep? Wake up BSNL Management and ensure justice to these low paid workers!

SAVE BSNL, SAVE INDIA – How to maintain a Garden?

I was at Sambalpur to attend the Circle Conference of BSNL Casual & Contract Workers Federation, Odisha Circle. I was staying in the IQ of Telephone Bhawan. As usual, when I started to go for morning walk, I saw that a person about 50 years of age was cleaning the garden at the very early morning. He was doing the work alone with full concentration. He completely cleaned, then started planting some seeds of flowers as also some small plants. Then he watered the plants. I was very happy to watch the process which he was doing meticulously. After a few minutes, I called him and conveyed my appreciation. He was happy that his work has been appreciated.
If we all do our entrusted work with such concentration and sincereity, I am sure, we will be able to provide excellent service to the customers.

Silence is Golden when in trouble – Manmohan and Modi Style

Former Prime Ministet Manmohan Singh and present Prime Minister Narendra Modi differ on many counts, which are  well known.
But they have got a striking resemblance on one important point. Both of them are expert im keeping stoic silence when it is inconvenient for them to answer. Manmohan kept silent on Coal Scam. Now Modi is keeping silent on US President Obama’s last speech in India in which the caste system and communalisation has been severely criticised.
Remember the old saying: Silence is Golden.

SAVE BSNL, SAVE INDIA – Did you meet your Member of Parliament ?

The Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations has called upon all the SSA/Circle Forum leaders to meet the Member of Parliament of that constituency, submit a copy of the letter of Forum and request him/ her to  take up the BSNL issue with the Government. The Convener, All India Forum has sent the letter to about 100 MPs by post along with a copy of the book detailing the entire issue. Now that the Parliament is not in session, most of the MPs are in their constituencies. If you have not already visited, meet the MP, hand over the letter and ask to take up the case.
This is to be treated as IMMEDIATE. After the meeting, intimate All India Convener/General Secretary/Circle Secretary about the same without fail. VAN Namboodiri Convener Forum.

Coffee twice, Thanks

Today I had a welcome surprise.
To attend the BSNLCCWF Circle Conference at Sambalpur, I was in Air India flight today morning which started for Bhubaneswar from Delhi. I was sleepy having to wake up at 03.30 and starting for Airport.
The flight was not full with some seats vacant. The breakfast was Upma and Vada, which was tasty. Coffee was also served. I had just completed drinking coffee when the middle aged steward came and offered coffee. I said I had got coffee. He smiled and told me, ‘you can have one more.’
I was thinking that he did not know I had coffee. Well he knew. He was offering me the  second time. I gladly accepted. He went, but came back and offered sugar and milk. I took milk powder and put in the coffee. I thanked him.
Even if coffee was balance, he need not have offered me. It was that he wanted to serve his guests better.
This was a good experience. I have seen the same hospitality earlier also; some Air-hostesses giving sweets to the children and caring for them.
I am impressed.
BSNL employees can also become more caring and helping to customers. This will give the correct message.

SAVE BSNL, SAVE INDIA – Good Morning / Thank You

The above two words are magic. If you use it more times, you get more smiles, you get more customers, more friends.

When dealing with customers, welcome them with a smile and a Good Morning/ Good Afternoon/Good Evening/Namaste! They will be happy, they will feel they are welcome. It is the starting point. And deal with them cordially and ensure that their requirements are met to the maximum possible.
When the transaction is over,  a Thank You will be suitable.
The staff of Air India, State Bank, LIC and other PSUs are practising this courtsey very effectively. Whenever such courtsies are offered to me, I feel elated and that I am welcome. This will be true to most people.
There is nothing to lose by offering Greetings with a Smile; but a lot to gain for you and your organisation.
I know that most BSNL employees are already practicing the above. Let others also start this welcome habit.
Thank you my friends!
