78.2% IDA Merger- Status quo


15-10-2014

78.2 CASE

Our CHQ is receiving frantic enquiries from many quarters on the issue. Hence, this posting.


On 5th September 2014, in the SCOVA meeting, the Department of Expenditure gave a categorical assurance that

they would convey their views on the proposal from DoT WITHIN ONE WEEK.

Now, 40 days have passed after that. DoE has not yet conveyed their views to DoT.


Why? We do not know why DoE is withholding the File.

Com. Chhidu Singh is making constant efforts. Let DoE give their views, this way or the other.

Why should they delay it?


When we get definite information, we will convey to all through this Website.


Be patient. We will get it. Nobody can deny it.

Some buraucrats can delay it. They can do that much harm to the pensioners.

JUSTICE DENIED



JUSTICE DENIED

IT SHOULD BE 6.9%, NOT 6.8%

As per proper calculation based on the 3 months average All India Consumer Price Index,

the IDA should be 98.2 percent with effect from 1-10-2014, an increase of 6.9% and not 6.8%.

Department of Public Enterprises in India ignored the universal principle of rounding of to the next higher level when any index is 0.5 or more. Here in the instant case, the rounding of is not done, denying justice to lakhs of workers and officers in various PSUs, inbcluding BSNL employees and BSNL Pensioners. It happened in 2007 earlier. At that time nobody pointed out, nobody protested.

Our Association is taking up the case with DPE.
