TN CIRCLE SAYS . . . . . .
Queries about 3rd PRC Recommendations
CMD has mentioned that 2 lakh pensioners pension revision directly linked to 3rd PRC implementation. What does it mean ? Is he taking care of retirees?
Expert Comment: 3rd PRC is nothing to do with pension revision of public sector pensioners. The terms of reference to it is also not mentioned about pension revision. There is no pension revision to any public sector pensioner except BSNL Pensioner. It has finished its job. Our case is a typical case.
CMD can fight for pay revision of BSNL employess only. he has not connected with pension revision of BSNL Pensioners. we are now DOT Pensioners in IDA Scale. DOT only is the authority to revise our pension
I want to site one past example. BSNL employees were agitating when 78.2% IDA merger was not given to them. During 2013 BSNL wrote a letter to DOT approving the demands 1. 78.2 IDA merger for employees and 2. pension revision to BSNL pensioners according to 78.2% IDA merger. DOT replied to BSNL to remove the 2nd recommendation and send a fresh recommendation saying that it can not ask or recommend 78.2 IDA pension revision to ensioners. BSNL then removed that class and sent a fresh proposal to DOT without mentioning about pensioners. That is the real situation still persists.
CHQ opines : WORDS SOUND LIKE MUSIC
Shri Anupam Srivastava, CMD of BSNL has told union leaders that he would resign if he fails to get approval for wage revision. He has written a good letter to DOT also.
We wish our juniors all success.
Our pension should be revised by Govt. independent of these dramatic developments.
