b) Creation of tower subsidiary and appointment of CMD:- We expressed our concern against the creation of tower subsidiary and appointment of CMD from DoT.

10.01.2018  Meeting with DDG (Estt.) DoT:

a) GS, President met DDG (Estt.) DoT and discussed regarding revision of pension for BSNL pensioners. We requested to consider revision of BSNL pensioners de-linking with the revision of pay scale of BSNL Employees since, BSNL pensioners are no way related with the profit and losses of the BSNL. The pension contribution has already been paid to DoT during their service, so now there is no justification of linking revision of pension with pay revision. DDG (Estt.) mentioned that they are waiting for the decision on pay revision of BSNL executives and thereafter pension revision of BSNL pensioners will be processed. He explained the reason that incase the pension of the BSNL pensioners before 3rd PRC implementation on the basis of 2nd PRC is revised than the pension revision of the existing pensioners after 01.01.2017 will be lesser which will create anomaly. We explained that some formula has to be evolve by DOT to revise the pension and to avoid such anomalies. DDG (Estt.) assured to look into the matter.

b) Delay in settlement of pensionary benefits of BSNL pensioners who retired after July-2017 on the pretext of DoT letter dated 05.07.2017. We explained that against DoT letter dated 05.07.2017 stay order has been granted by Hon'ble CAT Jaipur in favor of 28 applicants and Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi has also allowed the OA filed by AIBSNLEA requesting to quash the said order of DoT dated 05.07.2017. DDG (Estt.) mentioned that a clarification is being issued to BSNL and CCAs to settle all the pension cases on the basis of DoT letter dated 05.07.2017 immediately and the cases of the applicants in the court may be decided subject to outcome of the court cases. He assured to issue this instruction in next week itself.

However, DoT has appointed JS (A) as the CMD Tower Subsidiary which was not in our notice. Against this arbitrary action of the DoT/ Govt. we apprised him about our protest actions.

To protest it, as an immediate response, all Unions and Associations have decided to hold demonstration throughout the country on 08.01.2018. All the Circle/District Secretaries are requested to ensure 100% participation in these demonstrations and make it a grand success.

Further course of action will be decided in the meeting of all the Unions and Assns scheduled for 08.01.2018.

Meeting with Secretary (T):-Implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL and revision of pension of BSNL pensioners: During Curtsey call meeting we requested Secretary (T) for the implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL. We pleaded that we basically ere the employees of the DOT and under Govt. policy only we got absorbed in BSNL. Now on completion of the 10 years the pay revision of BSNL employees is a must at par with Govt. Employees.

Secretary (T) mentioned that I am aware of it and it is under consideration.

Special secretary (T) - We requested Spl. Secy. (T) for implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL and revision of Pension of BSNL pensioners. SST mentioned that BSNL's proposal on 3rd PRC is being given to a committee to examine for consideration in DoT. He further mentioned that matter is under consideration. Regarding pension revision of BSNL pensioners Spl. Secy. (T) agreed that BSNL, pensioners pension revision should not be delayed on the pretext of revision of pay scale in BSNL since the BSNL pensioners are no way related with the losses and profit of BSNL. He assured to discuss the matter with Member (S) for its early solution.

Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL:-On the issue of 4G Spectrum allocation to BSNL, Spl. Secy.(T) DoT mentioned that the matter is under consideration in DoT and DoT is positive on this issue.

04.01.2018 Meeting with Member (S) :-We requested member (S) for the consideration of pension revision of BSNL pensioners. Member (S) immediately discuss the matter with DDG (Estt.) DoT and the DDG (Estt) informed that the pension revision issue will be initiated after the revision of pay scales of BSNL Employees otherwise it will cause disparity and complications. After discussion with DDG (Estt.) Member (S) mentioned that he will discuss the matter with Spl. Secy.(T) and Jt. Secy. (Admn.) regarding revision of pay scales of BSNL Employees and accordingly he will take the necessary steps for the revision of pension of BSNL pensioners.
04.01.2018 Meeting with Advisor (F) DoT:-We discussed with Advisor (F) DoT regarding non settlement of the pension cases of BSNL pensioners who retire July-2017 onwards on the pretext of DoT order dated 05.07.2017 wherein one additional increment granted on the same scale on functional promotion under EPP has been withdrawn by DoT. Against this AIBSNLEA filed the OA in the Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi and Hon'ble PB CAT New Delhi has allowed AIBSNLEA OA to quash DoT letter dated 05.07.2017. Advisor (F) appreciated our concern and mentioned that he will direct the CCAs in the Circles to settle the pending cases after getting the undertaking subject the outcome of the Court cases from the concern employees and should settle their pension cases immediately.

03.01.2018  DOT appointed Shri Amit Yadav (IAS) ,Joint Secretary (Admin), DOT as CMD of tower subsidiary company of BSNL.

 DOT vide its letter no.79-51/2017 -SU dated 21.12.2017, has appointed Shri Amit Yadav (IAS) ,Joint Secretary (Admin), DOT as CMD of tower subsidiary company of BSNL. It  seems that the Government is moving fast to operate tower subsidiary. It is surprising that as per Union Cabinet decision the tower subsidiary will be fully owned by BSNL , but after seeing the DOT order it is difficult to understand that whether tower subsidiary will be controlled directly by DOT or through BSNL. We strongly oppose such active move of Government to fragment BSNL assets.

When the Chips are down

 

What you Gonna do, when the chips are down?

Now that chips are down,

Win if you can, give if you must;

Ain't nobody but yourself to trust;

Help yourself, to hell with the rest,

Even to foster parents, who now don't love you best.

What you gonna do when the chips are down?

Now that chips are down,

Aim for the goal, shoot to kill;

If you don't do it, then other one will;

Though time ain't easy, people ain't fair,

But BSNL got to fight for its rightful share.
