It was a practice all these years that when any joint committee of Official Side and Staff Side is formed, almost equal number of members from both the Official Side and Staff Side are nominated. But in the Joint Committee for recommending the PLI for BSNL employees, while 5 GMs represent the Official Side, there are only two from the Staff Side. This is deviation from the existing practice and is arbitrary. The intention seems to be to put undue pressure on the Staff Side to agree with the official side.
The Management should change its unfair line and allow staff side to nominate equal number of members to the Joint Committees, as per the existing practice.
