THEY GOT PAY REVISION AND PENSION REVISION BOTH REJECTED....
As you know, the Staff Unions earlier demanded Pension Revision in BSNL with the same fitment benefit as being granted to the serving staff without considering the fact that pension has to be revised by the Government and pay has to be revised by BSNL company. Some of them changed their stand later on. Such leaders demanded de-linking pay revision and pension revision. It was a welcome change. But, at the same time they wanted pension revision with 15% fitment benefit proposed by PRC. These leaders have been creating confusion time and again.
Now, when these unions are organising a March to Sanchar Bhavan tomorrow, the DoT has rejected their demands.
Pension Revision:: DoT says that it can be taken up as and when Third PRC Report is implemented in BSNL.
PRC REPORT on Pay Revision: DoT says that as per PRC report BSNL is not covered for the fitment benefits due to heavy loss the company incurs.
Loss: DoT points out the loss as:
2013-2014: Rs. 7124 crore
2014-2015: Rs. 8843 crore
2015-2016: Rs. 4169 crore
2016-2017: Rs. 4793 crore
IN EFFECT, THE GOVERNMENT HAS REJECTED BOTH PAY REVISION AND PENSION REVISION.
We request the respected leaders of Service Unions to fight for their pay Revision and leave the issue of Pension Revision. Our task has become much for difficult now. But, we are determined to continue our efforts vigorously.
Our Demand is crystal clear. Government should revise our pension independently and delinking from the affordability of BSNL company. DoT should take a decision about Pension Revision.
13 DIGIT MOBILE NUMBERS
All these times, people were worried when they received calls from 13 digit mobile numbers. Many thought it was fake calls. Some countries had already introduced 13 digit mobile numbering system.
Now, DoT has decided, as reported, to introduce 13 digit mobile numbering in India from July 2018. I feel that some private companies like Reliance may get advantage. Such companies are taking policy decisions. Let us wait and see.
