GS, AGS (HQ) met with GM (Pers.) BSNL Corporate Office and discussed regarding:

A. Settlement of Pay fixation and Pension of BSNL employee's w.r.t. DOT No.61-7/2015-SU dated 5th Feb 2016: GM (Pers.) informed that DoT has taken a positive decision in this regard and shortly a formal communication will be received. Thereafter, the necessary corrective actions will be taken by BSNL.

B. Restructuring of AD (OL) cadre:  GM (Pers.) mentioned that the file sent to DoT in this regard is now returning back with a positive note.

24.08.2016:   Meeting with Consultant to MOS (C):

GS along with GS of AIRBSNLEWA met with Shri A.N. Rai, Ex. CMD BSNL, who has been appointed as the Consultant to Hon'ble MoS (C) and greeted him assuming the charge of the consultant and requested him to support BSNL during his tenure. He assured for his fullest support to BSNL since he has an affinity with BSNL.

24.08.2016:   Meeting with Member (Services), Department of Telecommunication, New Delhi

GS along with GS of AIRBSNLEWA met with Member (Services), Department of Telecommunication, New Delhi and apprised him  about the present practice which is followed for revision of pension of BSNL pensioners is that BSNL offices have to issue individual sanction memos and send it to the concerned CCA offices along with the service books and only thereafter CCA s take action to notify the banks for payment order. Each time when there is a pension revision, BSNL has to undertake this workload although it has got no relation with the process of pension revision. In 2011 BSNL thus issued revised pension memo for about 1 lakh pensioners and this time again it has to repeat the process for 78.2% IDA merger from 1-1-2007 for same no of pensioners retired before 1-1-2007. After implementation of ongoing 3rd PRC recommendation, BSNL has to issue similar sanction memos for about 2 lakh pensioners retired till 1-1-2017.

 

We mentioned that the such process requires considerable manpower and time. And the pensioners had to wait indefinitely for completion of the process with anxiety and worry. This process can be made simplified and the role of BSNL in this process may completely be eliminated as BSNL has got no responsibility now regarding payment and revision of pension.

 

While implementing the VII CPC recommendations, the DOP&PW has ordered vide Para 9 of its OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A)(ii) dated 04.08.2016 for adoption of the  procedure for revision of pension of the existing pensioners/family Pensioners by authorizing the disbursing authorities including the public sector banks to disburse revised pension without waiting for further authorization from Accounts Officers/ CCAs  concerned. Similar procedure was followed while implementing VIth CPC recommendations by Govt. of India in the year 2006.

 

We requested Member (S) to follow the same principle for the BSNL pensioners also for the pension revision, which  has been laid down by DOP&PW for Central Govt. Pensioners. This will reduce the volume of work in BSNL Offices for the pensioners already retired before the date of effect of such pension revision. However where the question of pension revision requires pay revision also as the case of implementation of 78.2% IDA for the present pensioners retired between 1/1/2007 1and 9/6/2013, BSNL offices will have  to prepare the revised pension papers/ calculation sheets.

 

Member (S) gave a patient hearing and assured to look into. <<<Click here for the letter given to Member (S)>>>>

A Outdoor medical bills reimbursement: We mentioned that the pensioners are kept out of scope the ERP. Their claims are still manually processed and entered in the system only at the last stage before payment. It is true that the payment is now deposited to their bank accounts but they are not informed the payments vis a vis the pending bills. They are also not informed about the receipt of the bill or the progress of the bill. We requested to bring the pensioner also in the scope of ERP.

In some circles for month together no empaneled hospitals are there. TPA system as is available in other corporate or linking with LIC as done by CGHS may be introduced. The committee constituted for reviewing the BSNLMRS should hear the voice of pensioners also as their need is different than the serving employees to some extent. GM (A) appreciated our concern and mentioned that he has already instructed field units to empanel as many as hospital who are ready to give medical facilities at the rates decided by CGHS for treatment of BSNL employees/pensioners. Regarding Delhi NCR region, he categorically mentioned that if any hospital is ready to give medical facilities at the rates decided by CGHS then it should be impressed upon to give a formal Expression of Interest (EOI) to him so that he can process this case for its empanelment in BSNL.   

C Free calls as per BSNL order in concessional telephones: We mentioned that the free calls allowed in the concessional telephones are 500+50 calls which should be 500+220 calls to BSNL as per order of BSNL dated 20-07-2007. GM (A) mentioned that there are clear direction on the Circular dated 20.07.2007 that the free call limit on concessional telephones is over and above the limit available in general.

D Allowing night calling facility in concessional telephones: We mentioned that the free Night Calling Facility as introduced in land line phones has not been extended so far to the concessional land line phones for pensioners.
