CHQ on agenda for 2017

AN AGENDA FOR 2017

AN AGENDA FOR 2017

[Editorial of Pensioners Patrika, March 2017]

AIBSNLPWA has a definite agenda for the year, 2017. The agenda is not for its members alone. It is for the entire BSNL fraternity, already retired and yet to retire.

1. Based on the Cabinet Note submitted by Department of Telecom, the Government granted benefit of 78.2% IDR for pension revision of those who retired before 10-6-2013. Cabinet Note submitted by DOT specifically states that DOT shall issue instructions to all for extending the benefit to the concerned pensioners before 31-12-2016. DoT failed to honour its commitment. DoT failed to provide the infrastructure to complete the work within the stipulated time. Pensioners are not responsible for the shortage of staff in CCA offices. AIBSNLPWA demands that the pension revision with 78.2% IDR should be completed without any further delay.

2. Once the work is over, AIBSNLPWA will raise the demand for the benefit from 1-1-2007. We do not want to create any impediment for the ongoing process of pension revision.

3. Principal bench of CAT has given a clear judgement in the case of Pension Anomaly, filed by AIBSNLPWA. When others were sleeping over it we were working hard. Court has observed that the respondents have no ground at all to deny the benefit. Since the impugned order dated 15-01-2003 itself is quashed, the relief granted by CAT should reach all the 4000 plus pensioners in the country. 

4. Similarly, the relief granted by CAT Ernakulam bench to BSNL pensioners in the matter of counting extra increment should be extended to one and all placed in similar situation in every Circle. AIBSNLPWA is the first applicant in that case too. 

5. Those who retired after 1-1-2006 got pension @ 50% of Last Pay Drawn, on rendering a minimum of ten years of qualifying service. But, those who retired before 1-1-2006 got the pension @ 50% of ten months average pay, that too on completion of 33 years of service. Imposing such a cut off date for grant of any benefit is nothing but negation of the Supreme Court order in Nakara Case. Any body retired before 1-1-2006, with ten years service, should get pension @ 50% of their LPD. There should be no discrimination on the basis of date of retirement. 

6. Last but not the least; the most important demand of BSNL pensioners is that there should be a stable system for regular revision of their pension along with all other Central Service pensioners in India.

Above are not the issues concerning members of our Association alone. They are the demands of all the 1.8 lakh BSNL staff retired and also the 1.6 lakh BSNL staff to join our ranks very soon. AIBSNLPWA works on this agenda.

BE PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN!


SRIHARIKOTA (ANDHRA PRADESH):  India's space agency ISRO launched a record 104 satellites on a single rocket from the Sriharikota spaceport in Andhra Pradesh today. India has become the first country to successfully carry so many satellites in a single mission. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV-C37 is the star of what has been described as an incredible step for the country's space programme. It tore into the sky at 9.28 am, breaking free of the earth's gravitational pull with a growl. The countdown began 28 hours ago, says ISRO or the Indian Space Research Organisation.

  1. In about 18 minutes, all 104 satellites were released into space, each travelling at the speed of over 27,000 km per hour - 40 times the speed of an average passenger airline.         
  2. India's workhorse rocket PSLV-C37 is on its 39th mission. Among the 104 satellites are many belonging to international customers.
  3. This is the heaviest version of the PSLV, weighing about 320 tonnes at lift-off and standing tall at 44.4 meters.
  4. The main passenger is the Earth-mapping Cartosat 2 series satellite, which weighs 714 kg.
  5. The smaller satellites belong to the US, Israel, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates will be launched. 96 of the satellites belong to the US.
  6. Close to 90 small satellites named 'Doves' belong to one San Francisco-based company, Planet Inc. The Dove constellation will be used to image the earth at low cost.   
  7. Two ISRO-made Nano satellites belonging to international customers were also launched. They weigh about 1,378 kg. The PSLV first launched the Cartosat-2 and then its 103 co-passengers into the polar Sun Synchronous Orbit, about 520 km from the Earth.
  8. PM Narendra Modi congratulated the scientists for successful launch, saying "this remarkable feat has made India proud".
  9. In 2014, the Russian Space Agency has launched 37 satellites in one go.
  10. This is ISRO's second successful attempt after the launch of 23 satellites in a single rocket in June 2015.

NEWS FROM CIRCLE UNION



Our Circle secretary Com K. Muthiyalu said that totally 15000 pension revision cases have come from SSAs to CCA Office and about 4500 to 5000 cases have been processed up to so far. He said that the pension revision works in CCA office was going very slow.When he pointed out that this to Jt CCA on 6-2-17 meeting, they told that the delay was due to post 2007 pension revision work which takes much time. So it was decided in the meeting that the pre 2007 work may be taken first and all files completed before 31st  March 2017 and then the post 2007 work should be taken. He further said that our leaders would go to New Delhi next week to meet officers in DOT & BSNL to persue our other cases like pension revision at par with CG Pensioners, gratuity revision, extra increment case, delinking of 33 years service for pre 2006 BSNL Pensioners.
