BSNLEU pays it's respectful homage to Dr.B.R.Ambedkar - 14.04.2014


BSNLEU 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 of Dr.B.R.Ambedkar.

This tariff hike is expected to result in fare hike by other operators also. Airtel and Vodafone command 52% market share.

Modify 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. 


[11.04.2014]Decision 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.
