A good agreement has been reached and implemented in BSNL with regard to the designation of the four major cadres, although it took about 10 years for the management to accept the reasonable proposals of the Staff Side. The same was initiated by BSNLEU, when it got recognition for the first time in 2004.

The demand raised was for the change of all designations of the non-executives which were obsolete, unattractive and time-lapsed. There were about 70 designations with some of them duplicate, some having no incumbent etc. It was decided to take the designations of the four majority cadres immediately and the others later.

Now that the issues of 4 cadres are settled, it is time to look in to the case of other cadres. Already it is delayed. Immediate action should be taken in the matter.
