We have already notified that CHQ will close the Covid Fund on 31st July 2020. If any member desires to send donation after that date he/she may send it directly to PMNRF or CMDRF. Collection of particulars by District Secretaries and Circle Secretaries and publication of the statement by CHQ will be stopped on 31-7-2020.
We have already crossed Rs One Crore. It is a great
work done by all of you.


During the week between 18th and 25th July only few Circles have added some amount. Most of the Circle Secretaries have stopped sending intimations also.

I once again request all Circle Secretaries to intimate their final figure by 8 PM on 31st July.

COM. ANUPAM KAUL, Our AGS,  reports from New Delhi:                     
I visited BSNL CO today and met officers to pursue our pending  issues
I apprised him that our Association had received requests from different circles for  allowing VRS 19 retirees to retain their quarters in view of COVID 19 pandemic. I explained that it is impossible for them to vacate their quarters during this pandemic . Handed over letter written by our GS on the subject.
He appreciated our concern and assured that action would  be taken on our letter on  humanitarian grounds. I requested him to expedite the matter so that the anxiety of our members is removed at the earliest
CAUTION......I Saw many representations in his Dak pad where the allottees have requested retention of quarters and written that they are ready to pay HRA at the time of retirement plus licence fee. Such representations have a negative impact on our bargaining power.
2 .  GM budget
I  met G M Budget BSNL CO Mr . Bhatt and conveyed our  dismay on reported  development in which retirees have not been paid pending Medical bills . He conveyed that henceforth a substantial amount of funds  have  been/will be  assigned for pending Medical bills of employees and the whole back log will be completed in a few months . He told me that pending Medical bills of empanelled hospitals will also be paid so that  indoor cash less facility is restarted. He informed that the reimbursement of CGHS fees for retirees is being augmented and many of them have been reimbursed the CGHS charges. I Requested him not to ignore the interests of retired employees .

3 DGM Admin BSNL CO.
Since GM Admin was on leave today, I met DGM Admin and  enquired him the status of orders from BSNL CO regarding  treatment of Covid 19 patients in BSNL empanelled hospitals . He  intimated though the matter has been discussed , but no orders have been issued so far by BSNL CO. He was personally handed over a letter written by our GS on the subject. We explained that CGHS authorities have issued several letters on the subject in addition to guide lines from all state Govts.
He informed that he will take necessary action Immediately.
 This is a difficult situation .All empanelled hospitals are pressing BSNL management for payment of pending bills worth crores of Rupees. It is learnt that BSNL will make payments to these hospitals so that some cordial relations are ensured   Then only BSNL will be able to issue covid Guidelines my assessment

We appreciate  the efforts made by our AGS Com.  Anupam Kaul today.   He is staying in Noida ,UP W and in Containment Area.  He had to engage a car exclusively , get it sanitized in his presence   and go to Corporate Office due to repeated enquiries from  all parts of the country.  He could thus bring some cases to the  notice of senior officers.  We are thankful to Com.  KAUL for his services taking lot of risk. Let us wait and see the results.
