Private answer

The Bharat Sanchar Nigam limited recently recruited Junior Telecom Officer & Junior Engineer in the year 2017 and 2016 respectively.


A diploma in Engineering Graduate having a certificate in the following streams can apply for the post

  • Computer Science
  • Electrical
  • Electronics
  • Information Technology
  • Instrumentation
  • Radio
  • Telecommunication

The recruitment process only contains the written examination, hence on the basis of performance in the BSNL Junior Engineer exam, candidates get the appointment letter.
In the case of JTO, graduate engineer passed in the above-mentioned branches are eligible to appear in the recruitment process.

Unlike JE post, the final selection in the JTO grade is on the basis of GATE scorecard and as like a Junior Engineer post, there is no separate personal interview for the final selection.

Post Nature

JE is a non-executive post in the Group C cadre who directly reports to either JTO or Sub Divisional Engineer depending upon the cadre structure in each individual department.
The Junior Telecom Officer is a Group B/ Class-II officer non-gazetted post in the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited. S/he reports either SDE or Divisional Engineer as per the work requirements in the Company.


The Gross salary of a Telecom Technical Assistant is Rupees 36,000/- (Thirty-Six Thousand) per month after the regular appointment in the service.

The newly recruited Junior Telecom Officer get around Rupees 45,000/- (Forty-Five Thousand Monthly) salary after the regular posting in the Company.


The cadre hierarchy in the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited from the Junior Engineer post is shown here

  • JTO
  • SDE (Sub Divisional Engineer)
  • Sr. SDE
  • Divisional Engineer
  • DGM (Deputy General Manager)

After completion of 5 years of service, JE gets the 1st promotion, and s/he can become the Junior Telecom Officer.
