Com. P Abhimanyu, GS of BSNLEU has written a good letter to Sh. Narendra Modi, the Prime minister demanding pension revision for BSNL retirees. He has correctly pointed out:
1.BSNL retirees are also covered by CCS (Pension ) rule 1972.Other central government pensioners governed by the said rule got pension revision; but it was denied to BSNL retirees.
2. II PRC report was implemented and pay was revised in the case of BSNL Executives in February 2009. Thereafter the benefit of II PRC were granted to Non executives in wage revision in May 2010. But the benefits were not extended to BSNL retirees then. (Means: Even if wage revision takes place pension revision is not automatic). So, do not link Pension Revision with Pay Revision.
3.Denial of pension revision is denial of justice.
