  1. sir i got je in maharastra circle but iam from andhra pradesh.. i want transfer to my home town.. how many years i have to wait for transfer.

    • Government procedures take time. So You have to wait for it. There is heavy retirement in BSNL in upcoming years, so chances of new recruitment are more.

  2. Hi sir. I m selected in bsnl as a junior executive so pls tell me current salary and after 3rd pay salary…second thing I heard a news regarding bsnl now heavy loss so is going to privaterized or shutdown is this real sir

    • Salary already explained in this article. As you said BSNL is in heavy losses and it is true. So it can’t afford 3rd PRC hence no one from BSNL will get the 3rd PRC benefits. You have to work on old salary pattern. However, salary may be revised when BSNL starts earning profits.

  3. Sir,
    I am qualified for the post of JE through exam.
    My name is appeared in qualified list published
    dated 5 July 17 for Andaman Circle , but till today I am not in receipt of any communication from circle. Would like to know normally how many days required to receive communication for document verification
    Is it advisable to contact concerned officer , if yes
    Where to contact , please guide

  4. Is it compulsory to attend and have a valid GATE score for the recruitment of BSNL?????
    Other students who are interested but have not attended GATE exam cannot take part in this recruitment???

    • It is mandatory to appear in GATE exam for BSNL JTO Job. However, there is a separate examination for the BSNL JE post.

  5. sir i wanted to ask that within how many days i will get the call letter for document verification for bsnl je 2nd list candidate..
    also, will they email me the joining letter or send only through speed post? what should i do if i do not receive any message from them?
    thank you

  6. this is the only department where one can call oneself an engineer without being so. You ask anybody about signal processing using fourier ananlysis. how the signal routing is done in optic circuits, how the weak channel gets switched to strong channel in gsm. It is just pen pushing. without any alternative public just resigned to it.

  7. hlo sir , can u tell me the procedure of training , what v have to do in training , Do v need to go for a test after completion of training …..

  8. Hi Sir.. this time BSNL is recruiting through gate score.. In the notification, one of the line is:

    Could you please elaborate it.. Does it mean that if we get shortlisted for the post and we are done with document verification. Then we can’t leave this organisation??? What if we get chances in other PSUs as well.. so at that time.. we can’t leave BSNL and choose others?? Thanks in advance..!!!!

    • After signing a bond agreement, you can not leave BSNL during the Bond period but you can transfer the bond amount in the case you get the job in other government departments.

      • sir, i am selected from HARYANA circle, and during the document verification process , they said tht bond transfer is not applicable in BSNL. are u sure regarding this, as i am trying for other psu’s too. kindly answer on this. any wht is the sorce of ur info. thanku 🙂

        • From one government company to other Bond is transferable provided that you have intimated your current employer regarding the new job.

  9. Sir, i have been called for document verification. Will they verify only my documents or i’ll be having interview on the same day itself? Also, plz tell me what will be the next step if i found eligible? Thanks in advance.

    • You please meet the BSNL authorities. As BSNL has already prepared the waiting list of TTAs, so BSNL may call the waitlisted candidates in case qualified candidates don’t approach them on time. However, after documents verification, you can discuss with BSNL authorities about the delay in your training or put your name on the last batch of training.

    Employment Scheme (FTE Scheme) of AIESL.”
    which one is better sir bsnl je or air india?

      • Emoluments.
        Graduate Engineer Trainee – Aircraft Maintenance cadre Will be paid a stipend of Rs 25000/- during the first year of training Thereafter, they Will be graded as Trainee Aircraft
        Maintenance Engineer With a salary of Rs 30,000/- p m in the second They Will be trained to qualify as a Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (A qualification granted by the Director General of Civil Aviation, India – DGCA as per regulation defined in CAR 66) During the training and qualification acquiring process the incumbent ‘Trainee AME’ Will be further upgraded to ‘Trainee AME-lll’ and thereafter to ‘Trainee AME-ll’ as per laid down career chart subject to passing the relevant papers/ modules of DGCA conducted BAMEC (Basic Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Certificate) examination or equivalent as per latest revision of CAR 66 There would an increase of Rs 1000/- p. a. in emoluments every year till their passing the knowledge test/ relevant papers/ modules for grant of BAMEC by DGCA/ eligibility for B1/B2 approved type rated training

On completion of the said process, passing of relevant examination and acquiring of A/B1/B2 type rated AME license on one of the aircraft, the Trainee AME-ll Will be graded as AME-l and would be paid Rs 95000/- pm The minimum time taken for an incumbent to be graded as AME-l, it is estimated, would be five years after joining, considering that the incumbent clears all the tests/ training/ oral, etc at the very first instance AME-l after three years With B1/B2 license on two aircraft would be paid Rs 1, 28,000/- p m There exists good career advancement for the candidates once they acquire additional licenses and experience In

        and performance of the candidate They Will have career in the organization
        as per the FTE Scheme of AIESL

        • This seems a better career opportunity than BSNL JE. In BSNL after 5 year of service you may get 50 to 60k per month whereas AME you would get 1.2k per month. Just talk to some one who has gone from same level to AME post that whether the process to take license is really tough. If not just go and join the job.

  14. Please help me. Which is a better job, BSNL JE or SSE Railway? I have to choose one between the two. Also tell me what will be the difference in salary between the two after pay revision. Thanks guys.

  15. Hello sir , i want to know that can we get extension of almost 7-8 month before joining of BSNL JE joining .. if possible then what is the procedure ?

  16. Whats the funda of the 5 year service bond in rural areas ? Am i allowed to leave the service before 5 years incase i get selected in some other psu ? If so then whats the amount i have to pay as fine ?

    Thank you.

    • Bond amount is around 50K which you have to pay after leaving the job before completion of 5 years of service. Suppose you are getting job in government sector then bond amount or period can be transferred provided that you have apply for the new job through proper channel.

      • Sir I am selected candidate …I have a query if join BSNL now ,later if am selected in coal India limited ,will I have to pay bond amount or it is transferred??
        What is meant by “proper channel”???
        Thankew …

        • It can get transferred but you have to inform BSNL before appearing in the interview. Proper channel means informing the head of the unit through your controlling officer.

    • There are many factors which may come into picture when you calculate the salary of TTA to promoted JTOs. The common factors are
      1. Year of the Service in TTA cadre.
      2. Any pay revision between the TTA to JTO Promotion
      3. The rate of increase in DA.
      By considering all these factors total salary of promoted TTA to JTO candidate would increase around 1.6 to 2 times.

  17. Sir good morning
    Plz give some information about tta dv process bcz all selected candidates are in going to depression.if u dont konw the information then tell me from ur side what will be happen in this processes

    • I don’t know why the process of BSNL JE recruitment has been halted. But I am sure that BSNL will resume it again as it has invested huge money for conducting the examination.

  18. sir how much time it will take now?bcz its now huge mental pressure..and due to this other exam is also getting spoil..any information regarding dv letter?plzz reply

    • No one can answer it except BSNL, there are very less chances of cancellation of TTA examination. But you should not stop appearing in other recruitment examination. It is always good to have more choices.

    • Yes, BSNL job is good for Electrical Engineers too. You need to for Govt Hospital for medical certificate. Format for certificate will be provided by BSNL authorities during document verification.

        • Just compare the salary & working conditions in both of these companies. Then decide accordingly. If BSPHCL appointment is going to be done before the BSNL JE appointment then you should join BSPHCL, as BSNL TTA recruitment process has been halted. Later on you can switch to BSNL.

  19. Sir, what is position of TTA bsnl verification process bcz many people says that it may be cancelled or revised in result. So what is the chance about bsnl TTA erstwhile Je.

    • You should give priority to place (means good city) rather than a department. In most of the cases better departments are limited to big cities only.

  20. sir,i got selected in bsnl je exam. recently i corrected my dob in sslc book for my passport purpose.this is done after my bsnl is there any problem at the time of document verification(age proof).

    • You should produce your old mark sheet at the time of documents verification. After successful appointment in BSNL, you can inform to the BSNL regarding the change in DoB.

  21. Sir

  29. Srinu sir,
    First of all, thank you for spending time and providing very useful information about the JE recruitment process. I have a doubt
    I kindly request you to answer my query. I am a PWD person.
    I have uploaded my PWD certificate which I have obtained in the year 2009 from District medical board. The certificate format is one and the same as given in BSNL notification- Annexure C.
    Should I get new certificate once again for the post?
    And the annexure format is in two pages but my certificate contains all information in one page. Is there any problem?

    • There are two category of employees in PSUs i.e. Executives & Non-executives. JE/TTA is a non executive cadre in BSNL whereas JTO is an executive cadre.

  30. Sir i need some more explanation based on 14 Week training period .after 10week class room training Remaining 4week we get practical training After training period we have exam .is there any rejection process in it .or after 2 year bound any rejection process

  31. Am from ANDHRA PRADESH of OBC category,if I applied for BSNL JE TTA OF OTHER state ,am I eligible for reservations and can u tell me of which category in other states I belongs to,,,

  32. sir, the complain against answer sheet for wrong answers will be eligible for all candidates or the only candidates which are providing the correct answers against wrong ques.
    means sir should i aspect the wrong answers will not reflect in the final answer key after the query provided by student .
    because as there are many mistakes and wrong answers in the answer provided by bsnl.

    • Usually, marks are allotted to those candidates who attempts wrong questions/answers. You can ask about it though online RTI to BSNL. They will provide you exact info.

  33. Hi srinu ji,

    By refering the answer key , i guess i can score 110 marks…im from tamilnadu bsnl circle and im OC….is there some chances for to get the job…
    plz reply….Thank you..!!!

    • If you are from OBC category & same you have submitted in BSNL TTA online form, then it is essential to produce the original certificate copy during document verification.

    • Circle or State wise cut off will differ for each state according to the competition in the circle. So the predicting the cut-off marks is a tough task.

    • If you have applied through OBCcategory, then you need to submit the category certificate to BSNL authorities at the time of document verification.

  34. sir, is there any scope of me getting placed in BSNL TTA if i score 80-90 marks clearing sectional cutt offs, like if i choose my desired city to be jammu , himanchal and my category is SC girl.

  35. but in the advertisement it has mentioned only of the sectional cut off acc. to which the merit will b prepared. and sir is there any region who would take sc girl ranging 80-90 marks.

    • There are two cut-off marks for BSNL TTA exam.
      1. Sectional cut off marks (20% in each section for SC/ST/OBC candidates)
      2. Overall cut off marks (33% of total marks for SC/ST/OBC candidates, it means minimum 66 marks are required to clear overall cut-off marks)
      As you are hoping around 80 to 90 marks in the exam. Your selection will depend on competition level in SC category at Himachal region.

  36. Hi Srinu,
    Thanks for the info that you are publishing for us and
    When can we expect the ” response sheet and answer sheet” which everyone saying that BSNL will send them to our mails.

    Greetings in advance for the reply….

  37. Sir, I m expectating 90 marks , clearing every sectional margin ,but may not clear the regional cut off . Would I b able to give the pre training examination or get selected in BSNL TTA.

  38. is it true that as bsnl follows relative score depending upon the circle wise competition , the sectional cut off may decrease or increase as they mentioned in advertisement i.e. 30%,30%,30%, and overall 40% for OC & Other categories?
    or is it fixed 6, 27,27 for open category?

  39. Sir
    If i get selected in je exam then what will be the effect on current pay scale.will i get all benefi set by 3rd prc or it will be different from previous tta employes.if joining date is after 3rd prc.
    Plz explain in details

    • BSNL will prepare circle wise separate merit list will be prepared for the appointment of TTA . So cut off marks will be different for each circle. The circle which is having maximum competition will have the highest cutoff marks whereas the low competition circles will have the lowest cut-off marks.

    • BSNL will prepare circle wise separate merit list will be prepared for the appointment of TTA . So cut off marks will be different for each circle. The circle which is having maximum competition will have the highest cutoff marks whereas the low competition circles will have the lowest cut off marks.

  40. Can i leave the job if i get a better job in some other company? if yes whats the penalty? can i get promotion if i have higher degrees?

    • There is a 50000 bond agreement amount which have to be signed by newly appointed TTAs. So whenever they leave the company during bond period, they have to pay 50000 to BSNL. Currently there are no extra benefit in promotions if candidates posses higher degree.

  41. 1. if i crack the BSNL JE(TTA) there possibility to reject in training period.

    3.after finished the training when i will posted.

    Thanks in advance!

    • This training is being conducted due to guideline framed by Government of India to provide training to SC/CT students or job seekers. Three days are never sufficient to complete the syllabus of BSNL TTA exam. So you can guess the training results. As last days are very crucial for any competitive exam. Hence you should concentrate on self study in these days.

  45. Hi I have applied for JE 2016 as ex-serviceman. Pls clarify is there ex-servicemen quite in selection merit of the same. Further, plz confirm whether ex-servicemen are eligible pay protection.

    • You have to clear the cut off mentioned in advertisement. As per their advertisement, you would only get the benefit of relaxation in Age limit.

    • As exam is online hence one PC is required for each applicant. Due to limited number of centers they might have scheduled exam on 26.09.2016 for some candidates. Try to contact with other BSNL TTA exam appearing candidates.

  47. sir, in my bsnl je admit card , my father surname has been repeated .Will it create problem during my exam time and also during my final selection time?
    it has been repeated like this – kailash yadav yadav

  49. Hello sir ,your answer are very useful for me
    I need one thing after result. selected candidates r undergoing training for 14 weeks .in that training any examination conduct by BSNL? Or directly appointment

    • Thanks. During training period in BSNL exams are conducted but they are not like competitive exams. It means that this internal exam is not for selection or rejection of any candidate.

    • BSNL conducts exam during training of newly appointed candidates. But these internal exams are not like competitive exams. It means that they are not for selection or rejection of any candidates.

  50. Almost 10 days are left for exam and yet no updates regarding admit card and all.. I think the exam will be postpond..Your thoughts??

  53. SIR. as we see the que in previous TTA exams are objective type and mainly theoretical and the numericals are also simple ones . Should i expect the same pattern they follow this year also. OR they ask more numerical ques… please ans me it will really help me alot.

    • As this time exam is being conducted on all India basis, so difficulty level is expected to be more than previous exams. Due to higher difficulty level numerical question may be included this time but they will be easy or short calculation types.

  54. Sir,
    I applied for both BSNL TTA and IBPS PO
    So, I have a confusion. If I selected in both.

    So can I join IBPS PO,,,bcz I heard about 2 year bound restrictions in BSNL TTA.

    Which is best BSNL TTA Vs IBPS PO

    • IBPS PO is an executive cadre job whereas BSNL JE is a non executive post. If you get selected in good profitable & reputed bank then you must go for IBPS job.

  55. The information your providing is very helpful. Thank you sir. Can i get any info about how many people have applied for JE (TTA) this time?

    • Freshers JE will get around 30K in hand salary. Gross salary would be around 40k depending upon the place of posting. As HRA is varies according to the city of posting.

  64. You are really doing a great job … Really got lot of helpful info….

  66. Sir, I have applied for bsnl TTA job in west Bengal circle. My category is general, I want to know ,how much should I score in TTA exam so that I can be selected.

  67. Sir, what is my expected salary after 5 years of job in TTA in bsnl. What will be my expected salary if I crack JTO after that?
    And sir, is the hike of salary uniform for all circles or does the growth depend on circle

    • Salary hike depends upon many factors like Pay revision, DA revision etc. So no one can provide you how much you will get after 5 years.
      Hike will be same for every state/circle.

    • Like other PSUs in BSNL also week off is only on sunday. CL, EL etc as also there like other companies. These are provided according to government rules so you get these in every Company, PSU or Central Government Job.

  68. dear sir this bsnl tta recruitment is only for a period of 2 two years ???
    or life time job with minimum of 2years bond execution?????

    please explain me it in detailed manner

    • It is a lifetime job. 2 years are the probation period for job, after completion of 2 years you will become the permanent employee of BSNL.

  69. Sir ,
    Will there be an Interview process after the selection in online exam..??
    and be there any chances to get home state?


    • There is no interview for BSNL TTA or Junior Engineer job. On the basis of online exam final merit list will be prepared. Whatever state you have filled in the online exam, you will be posted on that only.

  70. Sir while uploading the marks list,i didn’t get my degree certificate. So I uploaded all the semester marks lists… Will I face any problem if I got selected??

    • BSNL authorities may check the hard copies of all certificates after the selection of candidates. So selected candidates may have to submit all the original documents before the joining in BSNL.

  71. Hello Sir,

    I have a doubt regarding the educational certificates to be uploaded while filling the form of BSNL JE. I have not uploaded 10 and 12 marksheets instead I have just uploaded B.TECH marksheets.Will that be fine?I am worried!!

  72. Hi,
    I am already working as a junior engineer (ee) in rural.department in cg. My monthly salary currently is about 28k(gross) . please let me know if I can try BSNL.. I mean work + salary wise which one is better and for gilrs specially??

    • Gross salary of TTA is around 35k per month. So gross is more here in BSNL. BSNL JE job is of course better than Rural Departments JE of CG. So you should try for BSNL JE exam.

    • There are two main components in BSNL TTA salary or any PSU employee salary. One is Basic pay & other is DA. Basic pay is increased by 3% every year. Suppose an employee has basic pay of 13600 as on 01.01.2015 after one year his basic pay will be 13600+ 408= 14008. Whereas DA revised after every 3 months or quarterly on the basis of rate of inflation. It get increased approximately 10% each year. Hence on an average your salary will increase around Rs 1800/- every year. It doesn’t include the growth in HRA and other allowances etc.

  73. Hai sir

      • But according to recruitment notification,candidate shall hv to successfully pass the pre apointment training exam.
        One more question,how can i achive the jto post after selection in tta,is there in promotion after some yera or departmental exm.

  76. Dear sir,

    May i know , could i get time for preparing ias on joining BSNL as JE . what are all the consequences would i see if i got selected to BSNL . please tell me .

    • You shouldn’t expect that you get study time in office hours. It is not a pure central government department. It is a Public Sector Undertaking (A Company) under Govt of India. Duty hours in BSNL are from 10am to 6pm. After duty hours you can prepare for IAS exam.

      • So training period of bsnl include only 14 weeks ??
        Someone told me that training period is of 2 years.
        Please confirm that for how many days/week/month training will be held.
        What is the training period for bsnl tta??

        • BSNL TTA training period is 14 weeks duration but the candidates will be on probation up to 2 years of service. After completion of 2 years of service, they will be confirmed as the permanent employee of the company.

  77. Hello,

    I have inserted driving license number instead of Adhar card, is it fine or it will create issue.

    Also I did not put 10th and 12th mark sheets, is it okay?

    • Any type of Electronic Identification would be accepted by BSNL. So driving license number is fine. For educational certificate they didn’t mention about which certificate is to be uploaded. So I hope there should not be any problem in that too.

  78. Sir,

    Will 7th pay commision be also applicable for BSNL?And how to take growth means acheive different levels from post JE to other.

    • &th CPC is not applicable for BSNL. There is a separate pay revision committee for PSU employees which is already constituted by GoI. It will be effective from 01.01.2007.

  79. Sir,
    What is the eligibility required for jto exam in bsnl,and will I be eligible to apply for it as I am only a diploma holder with 4 yes experience.

  80. I am working as JE(E) in westbengal state electricity transmission company limited(wbsetcl) from the last 4 years.Will it be better for me leave this job and join as TTA in Bsnl fi I get selected,regarding promotions and salary.

    • As you already did 4 years of service in WBEB, so it is better to prepare for BSNL JTO exam rather than applying & preparing for TTA/JE post.

        • All Indian citizens are allowed to appear in Exam. Once you are allowed for exam & get selected they can’t deny you at the tie of joining. Don’t worry about it.

          • Thanks a lot sir.Ok one more thing sir please tell me it is mentioned in the online application form to upload all the educational marksheets..what is the meaning of it??Should i upload only my mark sheets or i have to upload 10th,12th and all the marksheets and certificates of

  87. Firstly, Thanks a lot…you have explained it very well.
    One more doubt…
    Do BSNL have internal exams for promotions like SBI have ?

  88. OK
    Do you have any information regarding bsnl jto direct recruitment?
    i mean,, will the notification appear in this year?

    im,, also waiting for bel and hal
    share me info if u have any.

  89. very useful information
    thank you @ srinu

    now pls let me know,,
    what is the salary during training for bsnl je(TTA)?
    is it 28 k or something else?

    • You will get stipend (Basic pay + D.A.) during training period which will also be around 25 to 27K. You don’t get other things like HRA, Medical facility, Phone facility etc.

  90. Hi,
    I am already working as a junior section engineer (IT) in Indian Railways.. My monthly salary currently is about 34k(gross) and it will be revised (40k plus) after 7th pay commission.. please let me know if I can try BSNL.. I mean work + salary wise which one is better???

    • BSNL starting initial salary for TTA is around 28K(In hand & Gross may be around 34K) and your gross is also 34K. Their pay revision will be implemented from 01.01.2017, they are also expecting 10 to 15% hike in salary. As BSNL is a government company & pay revision depends upon the affordability & financial health of the company whereas Railway is a pure central government department. Railway JE job is more secure than BSNL JE job.
      I suggest you to fill the form & in meantime do more research which is better for you.

          • How can it be increased 10k +??
            If u says they are expecting 10+15% increase in salary ..
            Is there a chance that TTA after 3 rd PRC will get 40k in hand ??
            Sir plz comment on it …

          • On pay revision basic pay & DA get merged. So in present case new basic bay will get more than double (DA is 120.3%). On this new basic pay (29960) fitment benefit is provided. Suppose it is 20%. Then after pay revision new basic will be 36000. Now all allowances like DA, HRA, EPF etc will be as per new basic pay. So total gross benefit is around 10k per month after implementation of 3rd PRC.

    • Trust me my friend Indian Railway is much better than BSNL.
      You can try in private sector after some handsome experience but if you work in BSNL you can not apply any where.

    • Why do you want to make suicide???
      You are sailing on a boat which is docked..
      And BSNL is sinking Boat which is operated by a people’s who, are safe. on another Boat (ie. ITS officers who are not absorbed in BSNL. still central Gov’t employees and gets benefit of central employees on BSNL money, though gets defunct these people will not loose anything) Therefore my friends don’t even think about it. Railways in loss still You are getting Bonus of 60to80 days in Diwali. Which is impossible in BSNL…..
