Thanks a lot for your co-operation against ongoing JTO LICE procedure. Although all the candidates are now in a big sufferings with frickled attitude of management.
However apart from this we need to bring attentions that as per existing rule , the training period for promotion to JTO through LICE is now scheduled for four month at training centre(which includes pre-basic, phase-1) and one month as field training i.e. total 5 months.
We from our unity think that after serving more than 5 years of service in BSNL, practically an employee get most of the technicalities, ideas and administrative procedures etc which is needed for being promoted to JTO. Not only that we got induction training at the time of recruitment as TTA in a vast manner.
As such we feel that there is no need for internal candidates(through JTO LICE) to give same type of trainings during same period as external candidate. We think that the period of training at training centres for internal candidates should be reduced to one month . if needed field training span may be increased.
Note that by this 4 months training , BSNL have to give salary as well as TA/DA to the employees undergoing training and also there is a remarkable harms to the service of BSNL due to the absence of huge nos of employees.
If the training period is reduced there will be remarkable savings of BSNL and we may avoid harms to BSNL service by the absence of the employees undergoing training.
On the other side the family members of an employee undergoing training faced severe problem due to absence of the employee. As such the employee will also be benefitted.
Considering the interest in bothway, the span of training should be reduced to one month at training centre and one month as field training.
