In the meeting held on 03.12.2018, between the Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and AUAB, it was assured that pension revision would be de-linked from pay revision. However, the officers sitting in DoT are trying to deviate from the assurance given by the Hon’ble MoS(C). For example, in the letter written by the DoT, to the Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare, the decision of Hon’ble MoS(C) was diluted. In that letter, the DoT had asked the DoP&PW, whether pension revision can be de-linked from pay revision. In yesterday’s meeting with the Additional Secretary also, the DDG(Estt.), DoT, was arguing that pension revision would be done only after pay revision is done. The representatives of the AUAB strongly protested this dilution and demanded that the assurance given by the Hon’ble MoS(C) should be implemented. On hearing both the arguments, the AS(T) directed that the AUAB and the DDG(Estt.) DoT, should hold further discussion on this issue. Accordingly, further discussion took place yesterday, between the representatives of the AUAB and Shri S.K. Jain, DDG(Estt.), DoT. The AUAB categorically told that the decision of the Hon’ble MoS(C) that pension revision would be de-linked from pay revision should be implemented. After observing the stiff resistance against dilution of the Hon’ble MoS(C)’s decision, the DDG(Estt.) assured that the issue would be further discussed with the AS(T).

 Some friends are very enthusiastic and quick in flashing some information without telling the source.  Latest is about AUAB's  meeting with Additional Secretary Telecom today.
The said message says that DoT has offered 5% fitment for pay revision and pension revision both. 5% of basic pension plus IDA (119.5% on 1.1.2017) is equal to 10.97% of basic pension.
CPC fitment was 32%.
 So,  this is the ultimate result of our action in 2000!
 What is the reaction of AUAB?  The flashed message does not say anything.
But SNEA website says AUAB has rejected it.
I am reproducing below the  SNEA posting.

Meeting between AUAB and the Additional Secretary, Telecom.

A meeting was held today between the AUAB and Shri Anshu Prakash, Additional Secretary(T). AUAB representatives in the Committee for Periodic Interaction, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU & Convenor, AUAB, Com.Chandeshwar Singh, CS, NFTE & Chairman, AUAB, Com.K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA and Com.Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, participated. From the DoT side, Shri R.K.Khandelwal, Joint Secretary(Admn), Shri S.K. Jain, DDG (Estt.), Shri Rajeev Kumar, DDG (Budget) also participated. Ms. Sujata T. Ray, Director (HR) and Shri A.M. Gupta, GM(SR), represented BSNL.  Detailed discussion took place on the 3rd Pay Revision, 4G spectrum, Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay and Pension Revision issues. As regards the 3rd Pay Revision, in the meeting held today,  the DoT side offered Pay Revision with 5% fitment.  If the AUAB accept it, then this issue would be placed for the approval of the Digital Commission ( erstwhile Telecom Commission) meeting, to be held on 05-02-2019 along with other issues like 4G spectrum, vacant land monetization and that thereafter it would be taken for the approval of the Cabinet in February itself, said DoT side. The AUAB stated that 5% fitment is very low and that they could not accept it. Thereafter, the AS(T) suggested that the AUAB representatives could discuss the issue with the
CMD BSNL and could come back to him within a day or two. It may be recollected that in the meeting held on 03-12-2018, the Honourable Minister of State for Communications had stated that 3rd Pay Revision with 15% fitment was not possible. Further, in the last meeting held with the Addl Secretary (T), 3rd Pay Revision with 0% fitment was offered by the DoT side.
On pension revision, DoT suggested for the same fitment which AUAB out rightly rejected. We told that Pensioners not linked with affordability of BSNL as the pension is paid by the Government. There after AST suggested for separate discussion with DDG(Estt) on the issue. After the meeting with AST, we had elaborate discussion with DDG Estt on pension revision formula.
On pension contribution, DoT is trying to send the recommendation to Dept of Expenditure by next week. 4G spectrum allotment and vacant land monetization is coming in the Digital Commission meeting on 05.02.2019 and thereafter to the Cabinet.


Today, the Convener and other members of CBMPA met Additional Secretary, Telecom Mr. Anshu Prakash and discussed issue of  Pension Revision. The result is not encouraging; rather it is  most disappointing.  
Comrades, we must prepare ourselves for the struggle.  Make our programmes a great success and widespread.  We must create an atmosphere so that the government should take the issue seriously.

Yesterday, 23-1-2019, the Shimla bench of CAT Chandigarh has given a good judgement. It says DCRG, Leave encashment, Commutation etc should be granted based on revised pay with 78.2% IDA with effect from 1-1-2007. With regard to pension arrears from 1-1-2007 the Judgement is disappointing. We hope that the concerned pensioners who approached the court will go for further remedial action.

COMMITTEE OF BSNL/MTNL PENSIONERS’ ASSOCIATIONS Met DOP&PW Officials  on the issue of  Pension  Revision of  BSNL & MTNL Pensioners .
Com. M K Bagchi, Com. Anupam Kaul and Com. S S Nanda, members of the Committee of BSNL/MTNL Pensioners” Associations ( CBMPA ) today (15/01/2019) met top officers in Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare and discussed about the issue of pension revision.
They were informed that DoT did not clarify the issues sought for earlier by DoP & PW.  DoT should have sent a clear proposal for pension revision if pension revision is delinked from pay revision.  But they have not sent that kind of  proposal.  So once again we have asked the DoT to send a concrete proposal.
Our representatives gained the impression that DoP&PW officers are very much aware of the issue involved. Our representatives clarified certain doubts also. It is understood that if DoP&PW gets a proper proposal with due justification from DoT it may be favourably considered by them and the views of DoE also should be sought.
CBMPA will seriously pursue the matter.
.. P Gangadhara Rao,
Convener, CBMPA
