29-11-2019 : For kind attention of GM(SR) and others in BSNL HQR:- We heard the motivation appeal to employees for availing VRS being very attractive and free from all confusions. Please respond if you or any officer in BSNL HQR is competent to clarify the pension matters. Is it not known that pension matters fall in the domain of DOP/DOT. Why the DOT is not coming forward to clarify the matters of pension raised by the unions including NFTE(BSNL). Being GM(SR) please take steps so that the future of VRS employees are not darkened. Also is it not the responsibility of management to ensure salary payment. The employees are facing untold sufferings.
29-11-2019 : Unfortunate indeed ! :- The Director (HR) told us on 26-11-2019 that the salary of October will be paid to employees on 29th November. Today, the President met GM (Budget), Shri Bhatt who told that the payment of salary is not possible as neither Banks nor DOT have come forward to help the Company. The President thereafter met the GM(SR) and conveyed unions deep anguish as the commitment has not been honoured. Employees are suffering. The DOT is also quiet over the pension related matters and reportedly not inclined to issue any clarification on the pension matters. These are unfortunate developments.

29-11-2019 : Silence is not the remedy:- NFTE(BSNL) is raising its concerns from 6th November onward on the grey area in pension for VRS optees 2019. The following issues need specific notification by DOT. (1) VRS optees will not be treated as separate group and their pension revisions will take place along with other retirees simultaneously. (2) As per present orders the commutation is allowed within one year without medical. How the withheld commutation of VRS optees will be regulated and what value will be applied. (3) PPOs should contain all pensionery benefits of VRS optees. The DOT is keeping silence on the above matters although we have sent series of representations on the issues. The owner, DOT is apparently asking BSNL to clarify on the issues fully knowing these do not fall in the domain of BSNL. Therefore, the DOT must break its silence and show transparency on the referred matters. Do not darken the future of employees.

27-11-2019 : No proposal to fix the retirement age: Presently, there is no proposal in Government to fix the retirement age of 60 years or 33 year of service whichever is earlier for Government employees. In other words retirement age will remain 60 years. This was stated in the Parliament. Ignore the rumours hereafter in this regard. 1 Retirement of absorbed employees in BSNL cannot be reduced to 58 years: The retirement age of absorbed employees in BSNL is linked with the Central Government Employees as per Rule 37 A amendments. There has been tripartite agreement also between BSNL DOT and three federations on the same. If it is reduced then NFTE will challenge the same in the Court of Law. The absorbed employees came along with FR 35(A) benefit and continue to enjoy even today.
27-11-2019 : Meeting with Director (HR) : The scheduled meeting between Unions and Director (HR)took place on 26th at 1830 Hrs. The GM(SR) was also present. The Director (HR) informed that the road map for functioning of the company after VRS is still under preparation. He desired input from the unions. Views were exchanged and following issues have emerged. 1. The territorial circle will not be merged. The Kolkata TD and Chennai TD circle will remain intact and will function as separate circle as usual. However the NTR and NTP, STR and STP, ETR and ETP and WTR and WTP circles will be merged. 2. The transfer liabilities of non executive staff will remain unchanged even with the formation of Business Area. The staff will not be transferred out of the SSA. The unions point out the transfers being done in the Jharkhand, Kolkata Circle and Kolkata TD Circles. The Director(HR) asked the GM(SR) to collect the details. 3. The merger of SSAs will not be done and all will remain intact as at present. 4. The Telecom Factories numbering 3 or 4 manufacturing products will not be closed. However, vacant lands will be monetised to generate revenue for the PSU. 5. The VRS optees will be redeployed on individual basis similar to Non-Departmental Telegraphists. 6. Salary for October 2019 will be released to Circles on 28th November and in the Individual accounts on 29th of this month. 7. 4 G Spectrum: It will be allotted from 01/03/2020 for 20 years.

25-11-2019 : Meeting with the GM(SR):- The union leaders met the GM(SR) and mentioned the following issues for bringing into the notice of the Director (HR)/CMD BSNL. (1) Salary of all staff alongwith ITS personnel be paid urgently. There should not be discrimination to prevent industrial unrest. (2) The clarifications issued by Director (HR) in his message dated 23rd November, 2019 on pension issues need to be notified by DOT/DOP. (3) Some Circles/SSAs have started transfers of the staff. The Director (HR) agreed on 18-11-2019 that the union will be consulted in evolving the procedure. The employees who have withdrawn their options for VRS are also being transferred to create fears. This is against assurance of CMD/Director (HR).
25-11-2019 :Why salary of BSNL staff will be held up? The Honourable Delhi high court on 18th November 2019 has ordered in ITSA petition that salary and perks of employees should not be held up. Management is contemplating to pay salary of ITS personnel alone. It will be unfair. Salary of all staff should not be held up and payment be made. Click Here
25-11-2019 : Settle Pension expeditiously NFTE has voiced its concern that delay will take place in grant case of pension to VRS optees of 2019. It is due to obvious factors. The BSNL HQs is trying to speed up the process but how it can be without 1. The Acceptance letter of VRS and Calculation sheet. 2. Without depositing GPF Contributions, LIC instalments. How the employees will fill up their pension papers in absence of necessary documents and completion of formalities, BSNL HQr should take and adopt correct approach and should not resort to coerecive attitude. Hardships of VRS optees must be taken care.
25-11-2019 : Message of Director (HR) dated 23rd November and NFTE’s reaction. Director (HR) has issued a message on 23/11/2019 clarifying on issues relating to Pension, which is not even in the domain of DOT, what to say of BSNL?. These, enumerated below, need approval and concurrence of DOT/DOP(PW). 1.Commutation of Pension – As per pension rule commutation is permissible within a year of retirement without medical examination. If it is deferred for latter period, without concurrence of DOT and DOP (PW) complications will arise causing hardships to VRS optees. Amendment in pension rule is necessary. 2. Pay/Pension revision – The DOT should issue necessary clarification to the effect that VRS optees will not be treated as separate group and they will be entitled for pay and pension revision along with earlier retirees. BSNL’s clarification is of no use. 3. Clear cut communication be issued by DOT to the effect that VRS 2019 retirees will continue to be covered under Rule 37A and VRS retirees will be at par with earlier retired personnel.
24-11-2019 :NFPTE formation Day :- The National Federation of Post and Telegraph employee was formed on 24th November 1954 It has played a very vital role in improving and safeguarding the interest of P & T workers as well as the Central Government employees. The demand for “Need based Minimum Wage” and historic one day strike of 19th September will ever be remembered. After bifurcation of P & T into two the NFTE came into existence. Sequel to corporatization with effect from 01/10/2000 it took rebirth as NFTE (BSNL) and carrying forward the tradition of NFPTE. The CHQ extends greeting on the occasion and offer red salute to all the leaders who have sacrificed their lives in the movement
23-11-2019 :Director HR BSNL issued a Message today. All clarifications on Pension issues should come from DOT and DOP (PW) and not from BSNL. Pension is not within the domain of BSNL. Future should be guaranteed. Director(HR) Message dated 23/11/2012: Click Here
23-11-2019 :NFTE’s Positive approach: NFTE as a responsible Trade union has always played a Positive role on the issues and moved in a constructive manner. We never believe in “fighting for the sake of fighting”. From the date of announcement of BSNL VRS2019, we studied the scheme and started discussions with management and expressed our concern on Vital issues of deferred Payment of Gratuity, commutation and future Pension/family pension protection under Rule37-A. We wrote on this subject to CMD BSNL and Secretary DOT for issuance of clarifications at the earliest. Our linkage with Rule 37A should remain intact even after VRS. Further, we insisted that post VRS, reorganisation of BSNL structure and maintenance and improvement of BSNL service be discussed with recognised unions. BSNL Management readily agreed and 26th evening a meeting is scheduled to take place with Dir (HR). Again On 22/11/2019 NFTE discussed with the CMD BSNL and enlightened him with the apprehensions prevailing in the field. He assured to address the issues. Hence Our Circle / District office bearers are requested not to be led away with stories and rumours. Comrades there are personnel who are prone to create panic amongst the employees. Just ignore these and play constructive role to help and protect the employees including VRS optees. The upgradations of employees in NEPP are due but the SSA Heads are avoiding to hold the DPC for upgradation. Comrades exert at Circle/SS levels for holding the required DPC. The BSNL Headquarters due to constant pressure and persuasion of NFTE has issued orders on 22/11/2019 to hold the DPC. It should be implemented.

22-11-2019 : Meeting with CMD BSNL :- President Com Islam and Com A Semmalamudham met the CMD BSNL at 1015 Hrs on 22/11/2019 and discussed the following items at length. 1. Apprehensions and doubts in pension in respect of VRS optees:- It was impressed upon him to take urgent steps for getting the matters of commutation, Gratuity, Pension revision etc resolved in respect of VRS optees before closing of the VRS window. These should be incorporated in PPOS of the VRS retirees. Steps are also needed to ensure that pension papers of such personnel are settled in time. CMD responded positively. 2.

  18-11-2019 : Decide destiny with wisdom and courage :- The NFTE has raised the grey areas in pension in respect of VRS optees on 6th and 7th November itself. National Executive meeting held on 10th and 11th at Jabalpur, the union listed the concerns in pension for VRS optees and appraised all concerned. The GM (SR) was appraised at Jabalpur meeting itself. Further immediately on return from Jabalpur we wrote to all concerned in the matter. Unfortunately till date DOT has not responded to our concerns. The BSNL HQr is not competent to issue any clarification. Their instruction on pension is of no value. It is coming to our notice some higher-ups who are immune from accountability are telling in the field that everything including pension matters of VRS are transparent and non-optees will face serious consequences. If it is true it is unbecoming on their part, we appeal to them to desist from this. NFTE sincerely appeal all concerned to resolve the grey areas in pension and the employees are free to decide their destiny as per their wisdom. The NFTE has always played a positive role but will not sacrifice the interest of employees, come what may. The CHQ exhorts to workers to decide their future with courage and wisdom and ignore the threats and rumours. NFTE will always be at their back. High handedness, if any, will be resisted including much rumoured lowering of retirement age from 60 to 58 years. Doors of court are open.
   
  16-11-2019 : Meeting with Director (F):- A delegation of NFTE (BSNL) consisting of President, General Secretary, Secy HQR (Com. Mahabir Singh) and Com. Riaz Central Organising Secy met the Director (F) and held prolonged discussions on the following issues. (1) Non-deposit of GPF and Pension contributions of employees causing hardships. The Director (F) asserted that the employees retiring on superannuation will not be allowed to suffer. The GPF and Pension contributions will be deposited and any default should be brought to his notice. (2) Remittance of recovered amounts of Banks, LIC and Societies etc:- He accepted it and told that efforts are on to get loan and fund from DOT to meet the situation. (3) Salary payment for October:- The Director (F) was non-committal but told it is getting serious attention of the management. Payment will be made as soon as fund is available from the sources including loan. (4) Difficulties of VRS optees Director (F) felt happiness with the response of VRS optees. As soon as we stated about ambiguity and grey areas of pension benefits he was taken a back but agreed these should be sorted out so that the employees may not suffer. The union asserted that it is DOP and not BSNL and DOT which can resolve the matters of pension.

In this connection we have already written to all concerned that the rolling back of retirement age will be against the commitment of the Govt and agreement with the unions on the eve of formation of BSNL. If it is imposed the union will fight against it and resort to litigation.
   
  13-11-2019 : Grey Areas in Pension:- President and Circle Secretary of J & K Com Ashaq Ahmad met the GM(SR) and Sr GM (Est) and apprised him about the grey areas of pension in respect of VRS optees. The modification / alteration in commutation rules be notified by DOP(Pension) and not by DOT/BSNL. The PPO of VRS retirees should contain clear and definite orders in this respect. Both the officers promised to apprise the Director (HR)
  13-11-2019 :Future concern in respect of VRS optees:-The National Executive meeting held from 10th to 11th November at Jabalpur, seriously deliberated the VRS offer to BSNL workforce for the so called revival of the PSU.
There are serious concerns and apprehension on vital issues, which are appended below.
  1. The VRS optees may not be taken as a separate group of pensioners. This may lead to dangerous position and pension revision in respect of such personnel may not take place at all, along with other pensioners in future. The DOT has also not spelt out if the grant of pension will be under rule 37-A. This is evident in DOT’s communication No:30-04/2019-PSU Affair at 29th October 2019.
  2. As per existing orders and provisions in pension CCS CCA Pension rules the application for commutation of pension has to be preferred by the retiree within one year of his retirement without medical examination. This rule is not revised and changed by DOPW pension department. The DOT and BSNL HQs are not competent to modify the commutation orders. Very clear and transparent orders also needed in this regard to prevent the complication in future.
  3. The DOT and BSNL have not clearly stated that all pensionery benefits to VRS optees will be as per provisions of Rule 37 - A
  4. Abnormal delay will take place in settlement of pension of VRS optees as contribution of pension are not being deposited by the BSNL. Similarly GPF contribution is also not being deposited. The VRS optees will not get final GPF settlement from DOT Cell causing hardships and sufferings.
  5. The BSNL HQs is not depositing recovered amount of instalments of LIC, Banks Societies etc. These organisations may not provide clearance certificates.
  6. Neither DOT nor BSNL HQs has fixed time period by which all claims will be settled.
All the above issues have been stated by President and General Secretary before GM (SR) who attended the National Executive meeting on 10th November at Jabalpur.

Above are for kind and serious consideration of VRS Optees
  13-11-2019 : Resume of National Executive Meeting:- The National Executive meeting was held on 10th and 11th November 2019 in Hotel Datt Regency at Jabalpur under the Chairmanship of Com Islam Ahmad.
The inaugural function took place on 10/11/2019, which was attended by CGM MP Shri Mahesh Shukla and Shri A M Gupta GM (SR) deputized by CMD BSNL. Com N D Ram General Secretary SEWA BSNL and Com Rashidkhan Dy General Secretary TEPU also attended and addressed.
Com C Singh, GS and Com Islam Ahmad President dealt at length about the gray areas in settlement of pension and its allied matters and urged the GM (SR) to appraise the CMD BSNL in this respect. It is the irony of fate that till date the corporate office has not drawn any road map for running the company. The 4G service be launched at the earliest. The management has never consulted union for revival plan. GM (SR) promised to apprise the CMD BSNL about the views expressed by the leaders.
The CGM Shri Shukla stressed that the doubts and apprehension of employees be addressed to prevent hardships and sufferings in future. Workers be taken into confidence to run the services as challenges are high before the PSU. President in his concluding speech stressed that the DOT and BSNL should be transparent in all the HR matters to avoid complications in future, keeping in view the approach and attitude of MOF.
The Comrades of Jabalpur made excellent arrangements and moved shoulder to shoulder to make the meet ever remembering.
Hearty Congrats to them.

(1) Pension revision of VRS optees:- VRS optees should not be treated as separate group for pension revision.

  06-09-2019 : Arbitrary approach will harm the PSU:- Of late the BSNL management is adopting arbitrary approach and attitude on issues without realizing that ultimately it will harm the Company. Arbitrary decision has been taken to withhold the salary payment of August creating panic and unrest amongst the staff. There has been no transparency on the part of management in this respect despite our best efforts and persuasion. Further, management has issued orders on 5th September, 2019 to update the service books of employees who have attained 50 years of age. It may be a routine affair but it is ill timed. There is enormous talks in social media about VRS, CRS and reduction in retirement age. The orders of 5th September have also disturbed and disappointed the employees. The NFTE has its history and we know how to protect the employees and fight out the injustices and highhandedness. The NFTE will resist evil designs with courage and wisdom. We cannot be taken for granted. Let it be clear. We sincerely appeal to management to desist from arbitrary approach and take union into confidence in the hour of crisis to run or not to ruin the bread earner, BSNL.

  20-08-2019 : Reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58 – hold protest lunch hour demonstrations throughout the country tomorrow the 21.08.2019. The AUAB has learnt reliably that the BSNL Board of Directors meeting is going to be held tomorrow the 21.08.2019, in which they are going to give approval for reducing the retirement age of BSNL employees from 60 to 58. We have been hearing for the past few months, about the proposal of the government to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58. This is totally against the commitment given by the Union Cabinet in the year 2000, that government rule will be applicable so far as the retirement of BSNL employees is concerned. In view of this, we have to strongly protest the move of the BSNL Board to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58. Hence, the AUAB calls upon the entire Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL to hold lunch hour demonstrations tomorrow to protest against the proposed move of the BSNL Board to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58.
