[07.11.2016]BSNLEU writes to shri J.S.Deepak, Secretary, DoT, on the pension revision of BSNL retirees.
BSNLEU is continuously trying for a permanent mechanism for the pension revision of BSNL retirees. This issue has been taken up through the Forum. After the 2 day strike on 21st and 22nd April, 2015, discussion took place between the Forum and the Secretary, DoT. In that meeting, Forum was assured that the issue of pension revision, with effect from 01-01-2017, would be referred to the 3rd PRC. However, it was not included in the Terms of Reference to the 3rd PRC. It is also told by the 3rd PRC that, it would not give any recommendation on pension revision of BSNL retirees, since the matter is not included in the Terms of Reference. Hence, BSNLEU has written to the Secretary, DoT, demanding to immediately take the required steps for including it in the Terms of Reference.<<<view letter>>>
