22.07.2016:   Removal of 60:40 Clause towards the payment of pensionary benefits to the retires employees: DOT ultimately modified the liability of BSNL towards the payment of pensionary benefits to the retired employees vide letter number 40-13/2013-Pen(T) dated 20.07.2016 <<<Click here for letter>>>. Now-

a. The pension liability in respect of employees of DOT/DTS/DTO who retired prior to 01.10.2000 is solely borne by Government of India and the BSNL will have no liability in respect of these employees.

b. The liability towards pensionary benefits including family pension to the BSNL employees (excepting those recruited after 01.10.2000), as per sub-rule 22 of Rule 37-A of CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 lies with the Government of India. The condition that the annual pension liability of the government shall not exceed 60% of the annual receipts to Government from the item specified in the O.M. dated 15.06.2006, is hereby rescinded.

c. BSNL will continue to discharge pension liability by way of pension contribution in accordance with FR 116.

This is an another feather in the cap of AIBSNLEA and AIRBSNLEWA,  who fought and persuaded from bottom to top to get a rid from this arbitrarily imposed provision on BSNL and thus ensures bright future of DOT/DTS/DTO employees aborbed in BSNL.

P.Radhakrishnan (JTO Kannur & CWC member AIBSNLEA ) on the chair. Com. Harilal ( JTO Trivandum SSA ) welcomed the dignitaries on the dais and all the participants in the special function.
Com. P.Radhakrishnan in his presidential speech made a special mention of the serious and active involvement of AIBSNLEA CHQ under the leadership of Com.Prahlad Rai and the circle body under the leadership of Com.T.K.Mangalanandan for the past several years for bringing out a fruitful end result in their battle for regularization of Officiating JTOs in BSNL. He expressed the wholehearted gratitude to the AIBSNLEA for and on behalf of all the officiating JTOs got regularized recently. He also remembered that the efforts made by Com.K.N.Baby Rani ,CHQ-Vice-President of AIBSNLEA was vital in their prolonged battle for achieving the deserved regularization. He also appreciated the support and patronage being bestowed by the present Circle Secretary Com. V.Shaji and his team in Kerala circle.

Com.K.Pushparaj (JTO and legal-coordinator at Trivandrum) in his key-note address presented all burning issues still pending and haunting the HR field of officiating JTOs even after their regularization.

Com. T.K.Mangalanandan, Former Circle Secretary and currently Advisor to AIBSNLEA, Kerala addressed the gathering and explained a brief history of the prolonged struggle we conducted against the injustice shown by certain vested interested groups who always tried to torpedo the Board's decisions to regularize the affected group. There had been a colluding group within the BSNL management, but we could bring it out and make the authorities fully convinced of the gravity and genuineness of the issue. This has finally led to the present achievement though it came belatedly. Even now there exists threats in the form of unwarranted court cases filed by frustrating groups, but we will defeat all such attempts with more vigour.

Com. V. Shaji, Circle Secretary Kerala also welcomed them to the forefront of association activities. He appealed all the JTOs to strengthen AIBSNLEA.

Com. Prahlad Rai GS AIBSNLEA in his speech elaborated the various phases in our struggle against indifferent attitude of BSNL administration in the case of regularisation of officiating JTOs. There had been lapses on the part of the management in defending the case of officiating JTOs in the court of law when it was dragged to the HC of Haryana by some vested interests. Only AIBSNLEA could point out it to the notice of CMD and we even demanded for a thorough enquiry in to the suspected collusion in this matter. The strong involvement and interference of our association and our constant pursuing could yield results finally. He stressed that AIBSNLEA always stood firmly with the oppressed group and those who are fighting for justice. This association will further take all possible measures to ensure that their genuine demands pertaining to fixation of pay and allowances, promotion, protection of service etc . He welcomed all the newly enrolled members and asked them to come to the forefront of this organisation to add momentum to our fight to become the number one association of executives in BSNL in the forthcoming election of association with majority of members. The call of the GS was received by the participants with a big applause.

14.07.2016:   United Forum of AIBSNLEA & AIGETOA leaders Meeting with Addl. Secretary (T)

GS alongwith GS AIGETOA and JS North AIGETOA met Addl. Secretary Telecom Shri N.  Sivasailam and discussed the status of Pay scale and Superannuation Proposals sent by BSNL. AST emphasized that by not extending the standard pay scales all these years and doing recruitment on non-standard pay scales was not good on the part of BSNL and the same should have been rectified way back. BSNL kept the issue hanging for all this time just on the pretext of sending queries and receiving counter queries.


We said that for failure on the part of BSNL Management, the employees who have been given sub-standard pay scales cannot be penalized and now when the BSNL management has taken some corrective action in the form of recommendation of the proposal for replacing non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A pay-scales with E-2 pay scale to JTO/JAO/Equivalent and E3 to SDE/AO/Equivalent and pay scales  E-3 to E-6 by  E-4 to E-7 respectively,  and  the  same should be done in the minimum possible time. We informed AST that queries sought by DoT from BSNL has been replied to and his intervention for an early action is required in the case. We also informed that the proposal had been lying in DoT without any significant progress on the issue for last one month.


The Addl. Secretary (T) emphasized that the issue has become very complex and DoT cannot take any decision on without consultation with DPE as the case relates to replacement of non-standard pay scales.  We told AST that already DPE has given its feedback that non-standard pay scales should be replaced with the standard pay-scales. AST told that personally he is not in favor of upward revision of Pay-scales. AST told that financial losses should be taken care of in such situations which has already been taken care of by BSNL. We emphasized that even financial has also not been taken care of as projected by BSNL. In actuality, the executives are facing huge pay loss vis-à-vis the per-revised scales and that was one of the reasons, that  Khan committee has taken a decision to upgrade the scale so that this pain can be minimized a little bit.  The step taken by BSNL is one short step in right direction and hence DoT should also endorse it. We requested AST for a positive recommendation on the issue for justice to the younger executives who have been recruited on an intermediate pay scale and how DoT can even think of downgrading the scales arbitrarily without charge-sheeting or penalizing an executive. AST told that without concurrence on the issue from DPE, decision on upward revision of the Pay-scales cannot be taken by DoT. AST told that this is also necessary to avoid delay which may caused by examination of the proposal by various sections of DoT and accordingly he has decided to send the proposal to DPE expecting an early decision. AST told that he will get the proposal forwarded to DPE as received from BSNL without any further inputs from DoT and he directed JS (Admin) to send the proposal to DPE for concurrence by tomorrow evening. He said that thereafter, the outcome shall be intimated to BSNL.  AST asked us also to pursue at DPE for quick disposal from their end.


On the issue of Superannuation, AST told that he will direct the concerned wing to expedite the process and ensure a quick decision on the matter at the earliest.


From the meeting with Addl. Secretary (T), it is quite evident that path is not very easy and in fact there are road blocks at each and every corner. The way DoT is trying to negate the proposal, gives us enough glimpses for the coming days ahead. We have to remain united and sending wrong signals by presenting a disunited picture is not going to help at all. So let's keep our flock together and speak in United Voice instead of sending feelers and scapegoats to the management and DoT.  We should also ensure that the issue and efforts done till date does not gets killed up just because of over enthusiasm of some persons. We have to remain vigilant and judicious in our approach.

06.07.2016:  One more feather in the cap of achievements of AIBSNLEA - 78.2% IDA Pay fitment benefit to BSBNL Pensioners and removal of 60:40 liability sharing provisions in the BSNL Pension Rules 37-A approved by Union Cabinet.

At the time of granting 78.2% IDA Pay fitment benefit to BSNL employees on 10.06.2013, it was assured by DoT that BSNL Pensioners will automatically get the benefit on actual basis as the Pension is the right  of Pensioners but later on the issue was made complicated that since the BSNL serving employees have been granted actual benefit w.e.f 10.06.2013 than how BSNL Pensioners can be given actual benefit from 01.01.2007. And, since there is no provision exists for notional Pension Pay fixation, the matter was referred to DoP&W and DoE by DoT to give notional Pension fixation w.e.f. 01.01.2007 and actual from 10.06.2013. DoP&W cleared the proposal but subject to the clearance from DoE. The DoE raised some objections regarding 60:40 provision of liability sharing from BSNL under Rule 37-A. The same were clarified by DoT in the Cabinet Note which was directly sent to Cabinet with the approval of Hon'ble MoC & IT.


On the issue of 60:40 liability sharing provision made by Govt. secretly and arbitrary in BSNL's Pension Rule 37-A in the year 2005. It was never informed to BSNL. The information in this regard was taken under RTI by our veteran leader Com. Amit Kumar Gupta, Ex. OS (East), AIBSNLEA and presently AGS, AIRBSNLEWA wherein the details on 60:40 liability sharing introduced in Pension Rule 37-A after the approval of Cabinet was known to everybody. This provoked us to ensure withdrawal of this 60:40 provision from the Rule 37-A. This provision only delayed the settlement of 78.2% IDA pay fixation benefit to BSNL Pensioners for three years.


AIBSNLEA and AIRBSNLEWA wholeheartedly took the matter with DoT, DoP&W and DoE for the implementation of 78.2% IDA pay fixation benefit to BSNL Pensioners and withdrawal of arbitrary provision of 60:40 liability sharing from BSNL. Finally succeeded in convincing the concern authorities in DoT, DoP&W and DoE and got settled it from Union Cabinet. The necessary orders in this regard are expected shortly. The hurdles due to 60:40 sharing module between BSNL and Govt. are now abolished therefore on this pretext IDA Pension revision of BSNL Pensioners at the time of 3rd PRC implementation will not be an issue. This is a great achievement on the part of AIBSNLEA as well as AIRBSNLEWA.


AIBSNLEA and AIRBSNLEWA will ensure actual benefit of 78.2% IDA fitment w.e.f. 01.01.2007. Also the amount of DCRG, leave encashment and commutation of Pension of these Pensioners should be increased w.e.f. 01.01.2007 on this account. The necessary steps will shortly be taken by AIBSNLEA in this regard since Pension is the property of the Pensioners. Let us, continue our efforts to achieve full Pensionary benefits to BSNL Pensioners w.e.f. 01.01.2007.

05.07.2016:  Union Cabinet approves Revision of pension of BSNL Pensioners Removing Anomalies: Congratulations! Efforts of AIBSNLEA and AIRBSNLEWA ultimately yielded results.  

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the revision of pension of BSNL pensioners and family pensioners, who retired prior to 10.06.2013 by allowing the benefit of merger of 50% DA/DR with Basic Pay/ Pension, effectively amounting to 78.2% DA/DR for the purpose of fitment, and (ii) Modifying the liability of BSNL towards the payment of pensionary benefits to the retired employees. 

The pension of BSNL pensioners/family pensioners, who retired prior to 10.06.2013 has been revised w.e.f. 01.01.2007 notionally with actual benefit w.e.f. 10.06.2013, by allowing the benefit of merger of 50% DA/DR with Basic Pay/ Pension, effectively amounting to 78.2% DA/DR for the purpose of fitment at par with the serving employees of BSNL. However, increase in the amount of DCRG, leave encashment and commutation of pension in respect of these pensioners shall not be increased on this account. 

The pension liability in respect of employees of Department of Telecommunications (DOT) / Department of Telecom Services (DTS) / Department of Telecom Operations (DTO) who retired prior to 01.10.2000 is solely borne by Government of India and the BSNL will have no liability in respect of these employees. In respect of employees who are absorbed in BSNL, the liability on account of pensionary benefits shall be fully borne by Government while BSNL will continue to discharge pension liability by way of pension contribution in accordance with FR-116 for the period they so work/worked. (60:40 Black Rule is now removed)

The revision entails an estimated recurring annual expenditure of approximately Rs 129.63 crore for pensioners and Rs 24.93 crore for family pensioners and arrears from 2013-14 would be Rs 239.92 crore approximately for pensioners and Rs 44.62 Crore approximately for family pensioners. Approximately118500 pensioners all over India will be benefited by this revision. 

This revision has fulfilled the long pending demand of revision of pension of BSNL absorbed employees who retired prior to 10.06.2013 and will bring the pensioners at par with the serving employees of BSNL by removing the anomalies. It will help in reducing the financial burden of BSNL and removing prospects of industrial unrest in BSNL while fulfilling the commitment of Government. 


The decision of the Cabinet has come in the wake of an anomalous situation created in the difference of pension formula among the BSNL retirees who retired before and after 10.06.2013. Further, the decision regarding pensionary liability is on persistent demand from various quarters and a series of deliberations at different levels to fulfill the assurance given by the Government before corporatization i.e. before formation of BSNL.
