Contrary to our impression gathered during our recent visit to New Delhi and discussion with Chairman and Member (F) of Telecom Commission, we receive the disturbing information that Department of Expenditure is delaying the case by asking DoT to supply number of data.

If the DoT asks BSNL Corporate Office to collect the data and supply the same, then, it will not come in the near future. During the last five years, Corporate Office could not collect any data from circles within the prescribed time limit.
Honourable Prime Minister has assured “maximum governance”. But, our experience is just the opposite. A benefit given to central government pensioners eleven years ago is still denied to BSNL retirees who are also central government pensioners. A benefit granted to BSNL serving staff two years ago is denied to pensioners.

Some leaders want “automatic pension revision linked with pay revision in BSNL”

Then, why the 78.2% benefit is not yet given automatic?

Com. Shiv Gopal Sharma, Secretary, Staff Side (JCM) met the chairman and secretary of the 7th CPC. He gathered the impression that the 7th CPC report may be delayed by one month.Earlier, it was told that the CPC may submit its report by 28th August 2015. Now, it is understood that the Report will be submitted by end of September 2015 only.

According to the report appeared in Economic Times,
Shri Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister has expressed a serious concern about rising pension bill.
The Honourable minister has placed a statement in the Parliament stating that
“........ The Pension bill will rise from Rupees 88 thousand core to 102 thousand crore next year, when the 7th Central Pay Commission recommendations are implemented....”
It means that the pension will increase at an average by 15.79 percent when the 7th CPC report is implemented. In the same statement it is mentioned that normal yearly increase in pension bill is around 9 percent.
That means the additional increase on account of 7th CPC report is only 7 percent.
7th CPC has not yet prepared the report.
But, Finance Minister has some information about the recommendations....!!

On 12-8-2015, the Corporate Office of BSNL sent a new letter to all circles to intimate the number of BSNL non-executive staff who had faced anomaly/aberration in pay when the CDA scales were converted into IDA scales in 2000. BSNL CO is collecting the data after 15 years !!!!

Corporate Office collected the same data several times in the past. All details are available in the Corporate Office. It is not understood why the CO wanted same figures again now.

Nobody has studied the anomaly case properly.
