BSNLEU pays it's respectful homage to
Dr.B.R.Ambedkar - 14.04.2014
pays it's respectful homage and rich tributes to
Dr.B.R.Ambedkar, on the occasion of his 123rd birth
anniversary. The Indian Constitution is the
contribution of Dr.B.R.Ambedkar, which greatly helps
the country to continue as a modern democracy in the
present day world.
He was a great social reformer, who selflessly
dedicated his entire life in crusading against the
atrocities being meted out to the dalits and other
oppressed sections of the society. The CEC meeting,
held at Rajkot, has rightly called upon our units to
observe Dr.B.R.Ambedkar's birth anniversary in a
befitting manner. On this day, let us take the
resolution to work to complete the unfinished goals

Presidential Order on payment of 78.2% IDA merger - Forum
resolves to raise the demand before the DoT.
The meeting of Forum of
BSNL Unions and Associations was held on 09-04-2014,
reviewed the issue of revision of pension to the retirees,
based on 78.2% IDA merger. It is learnt that the settlement
of the issue is getting delayed in view of the fact that the
Department of Expenditure has raised certain queries to the
DoT, on it's proposal to revise pension notionally from
01-01-2007 and payment from 10-06-2013. It is learnt that
the Dept. of Expenditure has asked the DoT, how pension
could be fixed on notional basis. The meeting of the Forum
discussed the issue at length and came to the conclusion
that the Presidential Directive issued by the DoT
on 10-06-2014 is the root cause for all the problems,
wherein it is mentioned that fixation of 78.2% IDA merger
would be done notionally from 01-01-2007 and payment would
be made only from 10-06-2013. Hence, the meeting
unanimously decided to demand the DoT, to modify it's
Presidential Order issued on 10-06-2013, to the effect that
actual payment on 78.2% IDA merger will be made from
01-01-2007 itself, both for the serving employees, as well
as for the pensioners. It is decided to seriously persue
this case with the DoT.
to go on struggle, for the revival of BSNL, is to be taken
after the formation of the new government at the centre -
Forum meeting decides.
The Forum meeting, held
on 09-04-2014, reviewed the financial condition of BSNL, as
well as the demands raised in the memorandum submitted by
the Forum, for the revival of BSNL. Neither the government
nor the BSNL Management has taken any step so far in this
regard. It was strongly felt that going on struggles was
unavoidable to pressurise the government and the Management
to take action on the memorandum. However, in view of the
on going elections to the Lok Sabha, it is decided that
decision to go on struggles would be taken after formation
of the new government at the centre.
