BSNL has also published the notice for the vacant positions in the JTO cadre on the basis of GATE 2019 scorecard.

By observing the above table you might get the idea above two positions in the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited.
A Junior Telecom Officer can become Management Trainee or Assistant General Manager after getting the 3 departmental promotions which can take whole service period. It means mostly Junior Telecom Offices retires on the AGM post. S/he can go to this post by clearing the internal examination for the MT. But BSNL has not yet conducted any Management Trainee examination.
Management Trainee is a Class-I or Group A post and also equivalent to the following PSUs Engineers trainee post.
- NTPC Executive Trainee
- BHEL Engineer Trainee
- ONGC AEE
- IOCL Engineers/Officer
- HPCL Officer
- MDL Executive Trainee
- PGCIL Executive Trainee
- POSOCO Executive Trainee
- MECON Management Trainee
- Vizag Steel Management Trainee
- and many more
An MT recruited candidate in BSNL can go up to General Manager post and s/he also eligible to appear in the Director / Executive Director level post selection in any PSU.
So Management Trainee is a much better post as compared to the Junior Telecom Officer. Due to the management post, an MT get more facility due to facilities attached to the Class-I post. They also get the district Headquarter Office postings whereas the JTOs may be posted in the rural areas as well.
