The case is again postponed to 28th July 2016. Many people are asking why it is postponed again and again.
It is because of the procedure adopted by Central Administrative Tribunal.
Petitions against dismissal, suspension etc. are given maximum priority. Then, the cases to be admitted are taken up. Cases pending for final hearing are taken up according to the seniority.
Our case is pending for hearing. It was No 29 out of 30 cases listed today. Therefore, according to the seniority, there is no chance of our case being heard in 2016. The process of listing and postponement may be repeated for some more time.
Once we enter the Court of Law it is difficult to get out of it. You are bound to go by the rules and procedures.
Precisely, this is the reason why we did not file any case in the matter of 78.2% even though many comrades suggested that.
As already reported through this medium, an advance copy of the Cabinet Note on 78.2% has been submitted to Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and five copies have been sent to Cabinet Secretariat simultaneously. It is for initial scrutiny. According to the rules, the PMO or Cabinet Secretariat should tell DoT within three working days if the Note requires any correction. So far, no instruction is received from them. Three working days are over. Normally, no Department will act on 4th day. Because it is PMO. They used to wait for a week or so. We can expect further action next week.
Some people have suggested that we should approach Shri Ananthakumar again. We understand and appreciate their anxiety. But they forget that this issue is not very important for others except BSNL retirees. For Shri Narendra Modi or Shri Ananthakumar, there are more important issues like Assembly elections, Helicopter, Sonia Gandhi etc. etc.
"BAKING STARTED. WAIT TILL THE BREAD GETS COOLED."
The results of 7th Membership Verification for Non-Executives in BSNL are announced. Both BSNLEU and NFTE-BSNL will continue to enjoy the facilities of recognition. We congratulate the leaders of both the organizations.
BSNLEU could not get 50% though it increased the vote share marginally. That helped NFTE to retain recognition as the second recognized union. There is an erosion of 1.5% vote share of FNTO.
One fact is revealed: during the last three years there is a reduction of 40648 voters amongst the non-Executives. In other words, more than 40,000 Non-Executive staff retired from BSNL during the three years.
As reported earlier, the Department of Pension issued an OM on 6th April 2016 stating that all those who retired before 1-1-2006 with less than 33 years of qualifying service are also entitled to get full pension, at par with post-2006 pensioners. The said Office Memorandum is now endorsed by Department of Telecom on 5-5-2016. The DoT order dated 5-5-2016 is given in our Page: IMPORTANT ORDERS.
