Today, all Unions and Associations of BSNL staff start their 5 days programme of Satyagraha.
BSNL, Management, in return, has absolved itself from all responsibilities to settle the issues raised by staff.
1) Regarding the demand for PAY Revision: BSNL says it has sent its recommendations. Means BSNL can not do anything further.
2) Regarding demand for Pension Revision: BSNL says DoT has to take a decision on pension revision with third PRC formula. It is easy now for DOT to reject the demand because Third PRC has not suggested any pension revision. There is no PRC formula for Pension Revision.
3) Subsidiary Tower Company: BSNL says that it is Government decision.
4) Reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58: BSNL says that at present there is no such proposal before it.

a very close friend of our GS Com. Natarajan for many years. Hariharan was
present in Patna CWC meeting, held in November 2017. There, immediately after
Com. J K Tripathy presented an estimate for our ensuing AIC, Com. Hariharan
announced his personal donation of Rs 5000 to the Reception Committee. But,
Com. Hariharan will not attend the Puri AIC. Death has appeared as an uninvited
clown and taken him away from our midst. We convey our heartfelt condolence to
the comrades of Hariharan. Com. Hariharan was a chronic bachelor spent his life
for the trade union movement and the pensioners movement..... We pray the
alimighty to keep his soul at rest.

It is evident that our AIBSNLPWA only concerns more on the
welfare of entire pensioners. Once again it has been proved without any
doubt. Yes. When the BSNL authority is keeping mum about the third and
aftermath MRS payment without voucher, our association has taken the lead to
solve the problem. Our GS has written a letter to BSNL CO and is now on the way
to Delhi to discuss the issue with concerned authorities. Let us all hope for the best. Let us all sing the Ballad of our
Association. The letter to BSNL CO is shown here under.

Sub: Extension of BSNL MRS without voucher facility:
We are extremely thankful for restoration of without voucher facility to the
Pensioners from April 2017. The order also envisaged Review of the Policy
after Six months. The Third Quarterly Installment has also become due now.
The pensioners who opted for w/o voucher facility are put too much
difficulty as they cannot submit the bills for reimbursement now.
Hence we request you madam kindly to extend this facility up to April
2018 and any review can be done from April which will help the pensioners
We will be extremely thankful for this kind action
