Finally Union Cabinet approved Revision of pension of BSNL Pensioners and removed the important 60:40 ceiling


Union Cabinet today 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% IDA/DR with Basic Pay/ Pension, effectively amounting to 78.2% IDA/DR for the purpose of fitment, and (ii) Modifying the liability of BSNL towards the payment of pension 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. 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 60:40 condition introduced by a Cabinet decision in 2005 is removed now, by the present cabinet decision, a big relief to BSNL as well as the BSNL pensioners. The additional pension burden which would have come on the shoulders of BSNL by the 60:40 clause is removed now. The pension revision on 78.2% is mainly delayed for this matter only as Dept of expenditure and Finance Ministry was not inclined for this and making objections. DoT, especially Smt Annie Moraes, Member(Fin) played a very crucial role in removal of this 60:40 condition. Ex Secretary, DoT, Shri Rakesh Garg also supported us.

3rd PRC constituted by DPE under the Chairmanship of Justice Satish Chandra (Retd) . SNEA, a constituent member of NCOA served notice of trade Union action demanding immediate constitution of 3rd PRC. In this direction a protest demonstration was held on 1st June 2016 with a series of FAX campaigns from all over the country. Salient terms of reference:  

1. The Committee will make its recommendations to the Government within a period of six months from the date of its constitution and have its headquarters in Delhi. 
2. The decision of the Government on the recommendations of the Committee will take effect from 1.1.2017. 


All the affiliates of NCOA (SNEA, MTNL, BHEL, BEL, NTPC etc.) are as much committed to and fully involved in constitution of 3rd PRC and future struggles have to be very formidable since the real challenge lies in ensuring that wage revision is completely delinked from profitability of CPSUs. 3rd PRC had to be compelled to follow the yardstick of 7th CPC. Let us start gearing up for what surely is going to be a protracted and ferocious struggle and in this struggle SNEA will be at the centre stage in mobilizing and organizing future struggles.

Circle Secretary and Asstt Circle Secy, (Com. P K Roy) met CGM WBTC and held discussion for a long time mainly on the developmental issues which were pursued by our Association for months together with Ex-CGM WBTC. We highlighted to CGM, WBTC the main issue of utilization of our manpower in a proper way which we already suggested. We placed a demand to increase the manpower specially in Transmission Wing, in CM vertical and a good no. of employees to be deployed in Marketing Wing also. Another issue we highlighted the cumbersome process of paying Electricity Bills of all our establishments (around 1500) in WBTC through newly implemented ERP procedure. We told CGM that we will submit a letter in this regard in the next week-- how to avoid this critical payment procedure and how we can save at least 10 crores expenditure  per annum by paying Electric Bills in due time avoiding late fee as well as getting rebate.

CWC meeting at Kolkata on 08th, 09th February, 2016.

Dear CSs, CWC members ---,

The CWC is notified just after 5 months after the AIC due to some pressing issues like delay in implementation of Joint Committee recommendations, constitution of 3rd PRC and deliberations with PRC, abnormal delay in promoptions mainly due to court cases, Committee report on officiating pay fixation legitimising the illegal BSNL orders, withdrawal of trade union facilities in the name of verification etc.

In the Kolkata CWC, serious deliberations are to be made and important decisions are to be taken on the following issues:

1.  Strategies to increase the revenue and accelerate the growth to make the company profitable to ensure the benefit of 3rd PRC w.e.f 01.01.2017.

2. Implementation of Joint Committee recommendations submitted on 07.10.2015 on implementation of Standard pay scales, CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and uniform first TBP -- course of action in case management not taking a decision on the matter by the time of CWC.

The 3rd PRC will be constituted shortly. But the pay scales of about 30000 Executives working in the basic cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO equivalent cadre not decided so far. Then how the revision of pay scales of these cadres will be deliberated in the PRC?

Practically all promotions in almost all the wings upto DE/CAO are stayed by the Hon CAT, Chandigargh. An alternative mechanism is implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy. But management not started seriously working on it so far eventhough sufficient inputs given by the Assn!

3. Deadlock on promotions in almost all the cadres, Implementation of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy in the given situation where Executives are working lower post but on higher pay scales ---- suggestions from the cadres.

4. Pay fixation and pay protection on officiating promotion during DoT/BSNL period and got regular promotion as SDE/AO/DE/CAO/EE after 01.10.2000 as per rules. About 15,000 Executives will face reduction of pay by one or two increments and recovery of pay to the tune of lakhs of rupees in case the Committee report is accepted by the management, legitimising the illegal orders issues by BSNL Co without the approval of the competent authority, ie. BSNL Board. --- strategies to counter the illegal order and protect the interest of our comrades.

5. Membership verification --- restoration of trade union facilities and deduction of subscription from salary.

6. Other important issues

All Circles are requested to deliberate these issues in detail by convening CEC meetings and reach Kolkata with specific strategies and action plan. -  General Secretary
