16th Nov 2013:- Happenings in RCM today..
The Secretary Staff Side, Shri P Ashok Babu Jee and the Leader Staff side, Shri K Anjaiah jee, today, in the RCM held, raised the issue of delay in declaration
of JTO LDCE Results, which was numbered at point no. 20 in the RCM items. Almost 30 minutes were spent in argument of the said matter and Shri J Sampath
Rao and Shri K Anjaiah questioned the management on this issue and demanded immediate declaration of the results of LDCE to JTO. Our Circle Secretary
Shri K Suresh questioned the management the reasons why circle office was stopping the declaration of the result for the sake of mere 55 candidates
who took the provisional admission and denied justice to all the aspirants of JTO LDCE held on 2nd June 2013. However, the management
side responded to this by saying that the results were delayed only due to the instructions received from the CO vide their letter dated 7th Oct 2013. The
Staff Side seriously demanded to seek clarifications from the CO pertaining to AP Circle as the provisional admissions in AP are only 55 in number and
the vacancies in AP were much higher in number and hence there was no reason why the Circle hesitated to declare the results. The CGM assured the
Staff Side that he would write to CO and seek the clarification. The SNATTA body of AP Circle conveys its heartfelt thanks to all the unions for their
sincere and honest approach in this direction.
03 Nov 2013:- Happy Dipawali to All
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not -- nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not -- unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education alone will not -- the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
-John Calvin Coolidge
Let our struggle to see ourselves as JTOs continue and let us not be discouraged by the obstacles that we are facing today, in the form of
legal complications or any such issue, and, unite once again, on this auspicious occasion of Dipawali, and keep up the spirit of being together and
take our LDCE results
as we managed to get the LDCE happen when there were many forces trying to stall the same. Let us not be losing our courage
to move ahead and let us keep faith in our association, that is, the association of DRTTAs. Remember, the struggle, has always been
our path finder and we will struggle again to ensure that we got our legitimate due share. Long Live SNATTA and Long Live our unity.

21-June-2013:- An Article about SNATTA and its Existence
Brief History of SNATTA and its struggles.
The SNATTA took birth on 8th October 2006, in the middle of the last decade, to fight the injustice about the vacancies and the promotion aspects of DRTTAs through regular conduction of LDCE for JTO.
The second major issue was the designation. The designation plays a major role in identifying oneself with the organisation.
The third issue that came up was in the form of wage erosion to post 2007 recruits.
Though there are many other issues like Rule-8 transfers, EPF issues, and few more, the above three demands were considered major issues and plagued the DRTTA tribe for a long time. SNATTA had to move the courts of law to seek justice.
As the struggle that SNATTA continued at the corridors of courts of law, could achieve the first success in the form of LDCE for JTO which was held in BSNL for the first time on 2nd June 2013. Ofcourse, the struggle is not yet completely over.
The designation change became insignificant, though remains in the list of demands, in comparison with the third and most important issue of DRTTAs.. ie the pay erosion of post 2007 DRTTAs.
The association initially tried to resolve it through unions first and then took the route of legal corridors.
It took almost 7 years through the sustained struggle of SNATTA (few die-hard fans of SNATTA) and with the support of DRTTAs across the sub-continent, to achieve the first victory by getting the LDCE conducted. Without the support from the management and the co-operation of DRTTAs across India, this mammoth task would have been impossible to achieve.
Now, the burning issue of pay erosion is another mile stone that SNATTA has to achieve and SNATTA is doing all its best to achieve this. This task needs support from all the DRTTAs across the length and breadth of India. The Hon'ble CAT, Chandigarh have disposed the case and with a direction to Competent Authority of BSNL to resolve the issue within 3 months. There are almost 2 more months left for BSNL to resolve the issue.
For any target to be achieved, the most important thing is the ability to hold on and observe patience. To achieve any thing in life one has to have the courage to with hold and stand erect against all odds.
To achieve all our targets, we should always strive to come together and find ways and means to impart strength into SNATTA system. Unity is our strength and divided we fall. At the same time, all the DRTTAs must work hard to help BSNL to make a much awaited U Turn and regain its lost glory. It is needless to underline that the future of BSNL is mostly reliant on its younger flock and it is a fact that everyone agrees upon.
It is therefore necessary for the members of SNATTA to observe patience and combat the weakness that deviates us from our goal, and help SNATTA to achieve its targets. Apart from this, it is also very important to make all possible efforts to steer the mighty BSNL back into a most favourable organisation to work for or to work with.

up the examination on 2nd June 2013. It is once again re-iterated that no stone is left unturned in the process. The process of compilation and the

First of all, the Circle Team of SNATTA AP Circle, wishes you all the best in the examination that was held on 2nd June 2013 after a great struggle at the circle level and at the national level too. It is one and all of you have made this examination a reality after a long gap of nearly 13 years. It is not an exaggeration if this LICE for JTO is called as the First Examination for LICE to JTO in this millenium. It is indeed a great day to celebrate as it was the dream of every DRTTA to see that the LICE takes place. It was just possible due to your support and help, else, it would not have been an easy task to achieve and was not an easy goal to reach.
The circle team of AP Circle takes this oppurtunity to congratulate one and all on this occassion, and wishes every DRTTA the "success" in the LDCE.
It is reported from many corners of the AP Circle that some of the questions and answers presented in the said examination were either wrong or ambiguous. Hence
it is important to know how many such questions appeared in the said test.
Therefore, it is suggested that all the DRTTAs to meet the university heads or the lecturers of Govt Poly Technics or Engineering Colleges in your locale
to look at these questions and find out if there are any misprints/wrong answers/ambiguous answers/speeling mistakes/ or any such issues with the question paper.
Please remember, one incorrect/wrong/ambiguous question could wipe away your 4 wrong answers and you would understand why each question and answer is very important to us.
Please Check for the following:-
1, Collect the wrong questions if any.
2, Collect the questions which had no proper answers if any.
3, Collect the questions which had more than one answer if any.
4, Collect the questions which had spelling mistakes in question if any.
5, Collect the questions whose correct answer had a spelling mistake if any.
6, Collect the out of syllabas question(eg. even questions from 8085 micro processor, question regarding geography of other countries or whatever which deviates slightly from the syllabas).
7, It was mentioned that examination would be of diploma standard. If you feel any question was tough and beyond the standard of Diploma,
please try to find whether the same question had earlier appeared in any GATE, IES, JTO outside or any Digree level examinations.
You can claim that the question is above diploma standards and get your dues for it.
Gentlemen, please do act fast and do act smart and take the ownership of this exercise and help many in our circle who are on the BORDERS to get a relief from such wrong/ambiguous/out of syllabus questions.
AP Circle Team

Frequently Asked Questions:-
Why T.I.M.Es Gate Institute?
It is the brand name and more over they are the leaders in the entire country for their success rate in IIMs. The best experience for the Part A is something that we can have a guarantee of.
Secondly, they have also been coaching for GATE which has a syllabus that asks more than the syllabus that LDCE expects. Hence it is certain that they can do justice to the coaching.
You say, only 80% for the part B syllabus will be covered in the material given by them? Why not other 20%
The 20% (is a rough estimate) covers some computer topics like C, Pascal, Java Script, HTML and web designing and few areas in communication engineering are to me made from scratch and are also available on the internet. The institution has accepted to provide links to such sites wherein the same can be obtained. Moreover, it is promised by the institution that the running notes will be given in such cases.
Which one is better, the regular batch or the full time batch?
Well, it is an individual choice and the full time is better for the outstation candidates as the entire course time will be 30 full days (8 hours per day) and a little more if needed.
We are not from hyderabad and we want to be there present for the election on 16th April.
Hopefully, the coaching will be completed well before 10th April if the same starts on 4th March. Hence it is the immediate response from outstation candidates that can help us to get the batch started as the required no. of candidates is 50.
Will there be accommodation provided by the institution?
No. There are many private people who are providing the accommodation. Collectively one such institution can be selected. The cost and other details can be had after a week or so that you can be prepared. Hopefully the cost may not be more than Rs. 3000 for the entire course duration.
Is SNATTA AP Circle having any tie up with the said institute or is there any personal favours offered by the institute to the Circle Body?
An important question. No such agreement. It is not a compulsion to join the said institute and you are at liberty to chose your choice of the institution. Please inform us too if you can make a better deal. We can save some money too. This effort is only to facilitate the DRTTA community to make the process easier. Also, it is always good to be together.
How are the class rooms? Are they sufficently ventilated and are there enough facilities for the female candidates?
Very Important question. Yes, the class rooms are sufficiently big and well ventilated. They are clean and match the reputation of the T.I.M.E Institution.
Thanks and Regards from AP Circle Team
