A meeting of the AUAB was held today. General Secretaries and senior office bearers of BSNLEU, NFTE , AIBSNLEA, SNEA,  AIGETOA, BSNL MS, ATM, TEPU and BSNL OA participated.

The meeting paid homage to the 40 CRPF personnel martyred in terror attack at Pulwama. The preparations that have been made in various circles, to make the strike successful, was reviewed. The meeting expressed it's concern that, the DoT has not even come forward to hold any discussion with the AUAB so far. After detailed review, the meeting unanimously decided to go ahead with the strike.

The meeting decided to call upon the circle and district organisations of the constituents, to make the last minute preparations for the success of the strike. The meeting also decided to call upon the employees to hold condolence meetings outside office premises at 10:00 am on 18-02-2019, and pay homage to the 40 CRPF personnel martyred in terror attack at Pulwama.

15.02.2019: Talks fail - AUAB decides to go ahead with the strike.....

Today the CMD BSNL and Director(HR), BSNL Board met the AUAB leaders. The AUAB representatives told the Management that, they are prepared to accept 3rd Pay Revision with 5 % fitment, as offered earlier by the DoT. However, they  demanded that this commitment should be given in writing by the DoT, so that the AUAB can consider deferment of the strike. Even this demand of the AUAB is not accepted. Further, the DoT has also diluted it's earlier assurance to give DA neutralisation. The DoT is demanding that the AUAB should call off the strike, in view of the terror attack in Pulwama. The Secretary, Telecom, has put a condition that she would not meet the AUAB leaders, unless they call off the strike. Immediately after the meeting with the BSNL Management, all the General Secretaries of the AUAB met and decided to go ahead with the strike.

The AUAB has also decided to exempt J&K circle from the strike, to ensure maintenance of services, in the backdrop of the terror attack.

The AUAB requests all the circle and district unions to organise the strike powerfully.

AUAB expressed their serious concern against non settlement of AUAB demands even after assurances given by Secy(T), DoT & Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) in the meeting held on 2nd Dec., & 3rd Dec., 2018. We categorically told that despite the assurances given in the Digital Commission Meeting held on 5th Feb., 2019 for 4G Spectrum allocation to BSNL and issues related to revival of BSNL, payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay have not been cleared by IFD(DoT) and not send to DoE. the queries raised by DoP&PW regarding IDA pension revision formula has not yet been replied by DoT. The Cabinet Note on pay revision of BSNL executives & non-executives for relaxing affordability clause of 3rd PRC has not been sent to Cabinet for approval. The left out issues of 2nd PRC are not yet settled.

AST explained that in yesterday's Digital Commission Meeting, MTNL revival plan could not be discussed due to some queries. He further explained that in MTNL revival plan, MTNL Management has suggested for reduction of age from 60 years to 58 years, VRS & there is no proposal for pay revision. The BSNL revival plan is now ready but informally Digital Commission has advised to DoT to take the comments of TRAI on this issue in view of the Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement. Thus 4G spectrum allocation will be send to TRAI for comments shortly. The other issues related to monitisation of non-core land of BSNL & VRS are to be discussed in the next Digital Commission Meeting to be held on 21st Feb., 2019 at 11.00 AM. He mentioned that regarding VRS in BSNL Rs. 6000 Crs. ex-gratia liability will be born by govt. through souvenir guarantee.

On the issue of pay revision, AST further mentioned that even 5% fitment benefit on pay revision is difficult to get clear from DoE. On the AUAB demands AST told that he will shortly arrange a meeting with Hon'ble MOSC(I/C). He appealed to defer three days strike. We explained that three days strike notice has been served to draw the attention of govt. fro the settlement of AUAB demands. In case the demands are not settled, AUAB will be forced to resume indefinite strike.

05.02.2019:  Digital Commission Meeting held today in DOT:- It is reliably learnt that the revival Plan of MTNL which was in DC  agenda could not be discussed today in view of the queries made by IFD(DOT). The revival plan of BSNL is yet to be prepared for want of final report on BSNL'S revival plan from IIM Ahemdabad. In BSNL'S revival plan, allotment of 4G Spectrum to BSNL is also the item for decision. It seems that the issues of revival of BSNL/MTNL are not the Priority items in DOT.

11.01.2019:  Meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction (Institutional Mechanism)  and meeting between the AUAB and the Addl.Secretary(T), DoT:

A meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction (Institutional Mechanism) was held in the Sanchar Bhawan yesterday the 10-01-2019. From the AUAB, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU & Convener, Com. Chandeswar Singh, GS, NFTE & Chairman, Com.K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA and Com.Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA participated.

Pawan Gupta, Director(PSU), from DoT side and Ms.Sujata Ray, Director(HR) and ShriA.M.Gupta, GM(SR) from BSNL side were present in the meeting.
It may be remembered that the AUAB strongly demanded that this Committee should be chaired by the Addl. Secretary(T), and that no result would be achieved if it is presided over by the Joint Secretary level officer. Whatever we predicted, has proved to be correct. The Joint Secretary(Admn.) and the DDG(Estt.) were not able to give any worthwhile information about the status of the issues, viz., 3rd Pay Revision, Allotment of 4G spectrum, Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay and Pension Revision. Both the officers are completely negative on our issues. No worth mentioning outcome came from this meeting.
Hence, after this meeting, the AUAB leaders went and met Shri Anshu Prakash, Addl. Secretary(T) and expressed their total dissatisfaction about the outcome of the meeting. Shri R.K.Kandelwal, Joint Secretary (Admn.), Ms. Sujata Ray, Director (HR) and Shri A.M.Gupta, GM(SR) were also present. Thereafter, full fledged discussion took place with the Addl.Secretary(T).

3rd Pay Revision :
Detailed discussion took place. The Addl. Secretary(T) told that the DoT is ready to settle the 3rd Pay Revision. But, he categorically told that it will be very difficult for the DoT to get the approval of the Cabinet for 15% fitment, since BSNL's financial position does not allow payment of such high salary. He requested the AUAB and the BSNL Management to discuss and take viable decision and bring to DoT immediately so that this can be taken in next Digital Commission scheduled to be held in the first week of Feb., 2019.

4G spectrum to BSNL:
As regards the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, the Addl. Secretary(T) confidently told that the DoT would do it's best to get the Cabinet approval for the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL. He expressed hope that the Digital Commission meeting to be held in the 1st week of February would give the necessary clearance, after which it would go for the Cabinet approval.

Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay:
As regards the issue of Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay, the Addl. Secretary(T) told that the Department of Expenditure (DoE) has sought certain details and that the DoT has already written to the BSNL in this regard. The Director (HR) replied that within 1 or 2 days, BSNL would send a reply to the DoT. The Addl. Secretary(T) assured that thereafter prompt action would be taken to get the approval of the DoE.

Pension Revision:
On this issue, the AUAB representatives expressed their dissatisfaction and demanded that prompt action should be taken by the DoT. Thereafter, detailed discussion took place with regards to the fitment, etc. Finally, the Addl. Secretary(T) requested Director(HR) to provide with copies of relevant documents like Govt. orders related to the earlier pension revision documents to the employees, etc.
 

Left out items of 2nd PRC :At the end of the meeting, the Addl. Secretary(T), DoT suggested that the AUAB representatives could again meet him next week. In addition to that left out items of 2nd PRC, Director(HR) BSNL informed that the BSNL Management is taking necessary action to enhance the superannuation benefits from 5% to 8%.

Facts regarding proposed change in the rate of pension contribution would be effective from implementation from 01.01.2007 are as under:-

Basis of the above date is implementation of 2nd PRC in BSNL, as DoP&T OM implemented at time of 6th CPC.

Detailed justification as under :
As per file no . DOT 7-1/2000 /TA-I/17 dated 31.07.2002 pension contribution payable by BSNL will be as per rates prescribed under FR 116 & 117 i.e. Calculation of monthly contribution towards cost of Pension payable during foreign service.

As per the DOP&T OM dated 15th May, 2000, based on the decision of the government on the recommendations of the 5th CPC, pension contribution payable w.e.f 01.01.1996 in respect of employees on foreign service/deputation was based on the maximum of the pay scale. Accordingly, based on this order, BSNL has been paying pension contribution to DoT for the BSNL absorbed employees w.e.f 01.10.2000 on maximum of the scale.

However, based on the recommendations of 6th CPC on pay revision of the Central Govt Employees w.e.f 01.01.2006, the government, vide DOP&T order No. 2/34/2008-Estt. (Pay II) dated 19.11.2009 w.e.f 01.01.2006 in respect of employees on foreign service/deputation, is to be paid on the existing basic pay (pay band plus grade pay) and not on the maximum of the pay scale. It superseded the OM dated 15.05.2000.
This order is effective from the date of implementation of 6th CPC i.e. 1.1.2006. Therefore effective date of implementation n BSNL should be 01.01.2007 i.e. implementation of 2nd PRC.

As per PIB release 26th Dec., 2013 regarding, Disbursement of pensionary benefits to all the combined service pension optee absorbed employees of Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL), sister PSU of BSNL are as under:-

“consequential amendments to the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, adjustments in respect of Government pension liability previously discharged by MTNL and proposed change in methodology in pension contribution as per FR-116 upto 31.12.2005 on the maximum of the IDA pay-scales and with effect from 01.01.2006 on the actual pay drawn in the IDA pay-scales will be made. “

28.12.2018:  BSNL's Proposal for reduction of retirement age from 60 years to 58 years to DOT: In response to DOT letter dated 6-11.2018, BSNL Management has proposed reduction of retirement age as 58 years instead of 60 years for revision of pay of Board level and below Board level executives of BSNL under 3rd PRC. Even this BSNL's proposal is not acceptable to DoT, mentioning that the financial implication for implementation of 3rd PRC i.e. Rs. 2980 Crore annually could not be substantiated.
It is surprising that BSNL Management has given such proposal to DoT even without discussing with the BSNL Unions and Associations. This is a serious situation and AUAB has to immediately react against such actions of DoT/BSNL.
It is understood that IIM Ahmedabad report on revival of BSNL may also suggest the reduction of retirement age as 58 years instead of 60 years.

Further he mentioned that DoT may immediately reply to DoE that 01.01.2017 can be the cut of date for its implementation at present. We requested him to consider 01.01.2006 as per DoP&T order.

(b) Delinking of pension revision from pay revision of BSNL employees: AST directed Jt. Secy(Admin), DoT, who was present in the meeting, to discuss the matter with Jt.

We further requested AST to hold the committee meeting at the earliest as per the suggestions given by Convener AUAB. The delay in settlement of AUAB demands is causing resentment & frustration among the BSNL employees.

04.12.2018:  The indefinite strike from 03.12.2018 has been deferred till further intimation by AUAB - After meeting held with Hon'ble MoSC(I/C) on 03.12.2018. 

a.  4G Spectrum Allocation to BSNL: Non-allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL has been a major handicap for BSNL growth. The assurance given by the Hon'ble MoS(C) in this regard in 24th Feb., 2018, was not implemented. In yesterday's meeting, the Hon'ble MoS(C) intimated that the Cabinet Note on the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL is already circulated to the other ministries for comments. He also assured to depute a senior officer of the DoT to those nodal ministries to quicken the process. Once this process is completed, the Hon'ble MoS(C) assured to take up this issue in the next Cabinet meeting itself. It is assured now that BSNL is going to get 4G spectrum shortly. This is a major break through in the financial revival of BSNL, and undoubtedly a very big achievement of the AUAB.

b.  Pension revision of  BSNL Pensioners: So far, the DoT has been linking pension revision of BSNL pensioners  with the pay revision of the BSNL employees. They have taken a firm stand that pension revision could be done only when pay revision is done to the serving employees. However, in the meeting held with the Secretary(T), DoT on 02.12.2018, and also in the meeting with the Hon'ble MoS(C) on 03.12.2018, the AUAB is informed that pension revision of the retirees is now delinked from the pay revision of the employees and the matter has been send to DoP&PW for consideration. This is a very big achievement of this strike call. AUAB will continue to take all out efforts to ensure that the revision of pension is done at the earliest.

c. Implementation of government rules in the payment of pension contribution by BSNL: The Hon'ble MoS(C) categorically told that government rule will be implemented, according to which BSNL has to pay pension contribution, based on actual basic pay. A letter has already been gone to the finance ministry, with the recommendation of the DoT. Settlement of this issue, is also a boost for the financial revival of BSNL.    

d.  Left out issues of the 2nd PRC: The BSNL Management has long been demanding that Management should fulfil the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, that 30% of the pay should be contributed by the Management towards superannuation benefits of the Directly Recruited employees. On this issue, the CMD BSNL has assured, in the meeting held with him on 02.12.2018, that BSNL's contribution towards pension contribution will be increased by another 3%, by March, 2019, and the remaining will be increased thereafter in one go. Thus, the non-implementation of the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, in respect of superannuation benefits is also resolved.   

In addition to this, GS AIBSNLEA requested for the revision of Pay scales E-1 by E-2, E-2 by E-3 and upgradation of subsequent pay scales E-3 by E-4, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7 as per the BSNL C.O letters addressed to Jt.Secretary (Admin), DoT vide No.1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 6.6.2016 <<<<Click here for letter>>> and vide Letter No. 1-13/2015-PAT (BSNL) dated 12.06.2017 <<<<Click here for letter>>>; Hon'ble MoS(C) directed DoT officers for consideration.

e.  3rd Pay Revision of employees: No final settlement is reached in respect of the 3rd Pay Revision of the employees. It was told in the discussion by the Hon'ble MoS(C) as well as by the Secretary(T), DoT, that pay revision of the employees would be done, but 15% fitment cannot be given. The AUAB representatives gave a detailed presentation to the Hon'ble MoS(C), justifying pay revision with 15% fitment. However, it was not accepted. The AUAB feels that this issue needs to be further persued with the DoT, for which some more time needs to be given.

DoT is constituting a committee of comprising officers of DoT/BSNL and the representatives of AUAB to meet fortnightly  to have a follow-up action on the above issues.

The leaders of the AUAB, in the meeting held after talks with the Hon'ble MoS(C), appreciated the fact that the strike call has brought major achievements to the BSNL employees, and that these achievements have got to be consolidated, by way of implementation of the assurances / issuing of letters. As regards the wage revision is concerned, the AUAB has decided to give some more time to the DoT to sort out the matter. However, struggles become inevitable, if the persuasions of the AUAB fail.
