MTNL retirees are also getting pension from government of India directly under rule 37. Hence, they too demand pension revision. A welcome feature is that all the leaders of MTNL staff Unions of Mumbai and Delhi and the Retired Officers Welfare Association of Delhi are united in demanding the pension revision with the fitment formula suggested by seventh Central Pay Commission.
On 22-3-2018, Sri Arvind Sawant MP of Shiv Sena, the founder leader of MTNL Kamgar Union of Mumbai, met Shri Manoj Sinha, Honourable minister for communications and discussed the issues of pay revision and pension revision in MTNL.
On 23-3-2018, on a directive from the minister, Smt. Aruna Sundararajan ITS, Secretary Telecom met leaders of MTNL staff union leaders of Mumbai and Delhi and the leaders of RTOWA Delhi. Of course, the main issue discussed was PAY revision in MTNL.
At the end, all the leaders unitedly raised the issue of Pension Revision, based on the report of Seventh CPC. According to Com. S S Nanda, GS of RTOWA Delhi, the Secretary was positive and assured favourable action in the matter.
We hail the correct stand taken by leaders of MTNL staff Unions of Mumbai and Delhi in demanding pension revision for MTNL retirees based on Seventh CPC report in unison with our demand. Our Shimoga comrades met the minister on 24-3-2018 and placed the same demand.

Ensuing CWC meeting on 16-17, April in Chennai will finalize the dates. Before that, Odisha comrades will form Reception Committee and start the work. Odisha is comparatively a small circle unit with only 1500 members in total. Such a small circle has come forward to host the AIC of the largest organization of BSNL pensioners in India.

It should be remitted to CHQ by branches. CHQ will hand over the amount so received to the Odisha Reception Committee. Some branches have already remitted the donation.
