The SLP filed by BSNL challenging the Ernakulam HC order on transfer of Sri MSS Rao is allowed by the Hon Supreme Court. Hon Ernakulam HC directed that Sri M S S Rao shall be permitted to continue as CGM, Kerala for 2 months. Since Sri L. Anantharam was already joined as CGM, Kerala on 23.09.2015, BSNL approached the Hon SC by filing the SLP. BSNL pleaded that Mr Rao is in the Agreed list and he cannot be continued as CGM which is a sensitive post. More than that industrial unrest is going on in the Circle which he could not resolve as CGM. In any case, he cannot be continued as CGM. BSNL informed the Hon SC that Sri M S S Rao who is under compulsory wait will be posted as Principal, RTTC, Trivandrum and will ensure that it is not a lower post. This proposal is accepted by the Hon Supreme Court.
BSNL engaged Addl Solicitor General (ASG) to plead the case in the Hon SC.
