DONOT GET CONFUSED PLEASE ..BSNL PENSIONER
Some people from NFTE in Chennai sent messages over whatsapp or so pointing out DOT has issued a new order on 22nd December 2016 about our pension revision. They are totally confused.
1. No order was issued on 22-12-2016.
2. On 21-12-2016 the Corporate Office of BSNL endorsed an order of DOT dated 22-08-2016.
What is this 4 months old order of DoT? It is an endorsement of a general order issued by Department of Pension implementing report of 7th CPC. ITS officers are still in Government service. Naturally the CPC report is applicable to them. Those who retired from DoT, before BSNL came into existence, also should get pension revision as per CPC report. CCAs have to revise their pension accordingly. So, the general order was issued for that purpose.
WHAT ABOUT DCRG, MINIMUM PENSION, COMMUTATION Etc?
When the sixth CPC report was implemented, the DoT issued an order in May 2009 extending the benefits in DCRG, Minimum Pension, Commutation etc. to IDA pensioners. In July DoT issued another letter keeping the above order in abeyance.
Again on 12th August 2009, DoT issued order (NO 40-31/2008-Pen(T) dated 12-8-2009) specifically stating that
(i) For DCRG, the Basic Pay plus IDA shall be taken into account.
(ii) Upper limit of all kinds of gratuities shall be applicable to IDA pensioners from 1-1-2006.
(iii) New Commutation table is applicable to IDA pensioners.
(iv) Minimum pension shall be Rs 3500.00
Similar order is required this time, extending recommendations of 7th CPC on Gratuity, Minimum Pension etc. Our leaders met concerned officers in Directorate last month and requested to issue such orders. Director (E) assured that it would be done and the File was on the move. Till this date, such an order is not issued.
Separate specific order is required for IDA pensioners on Gratuity, Commutation, Minimum Pension etc. This is the aftermath of corporatization. We have to face it. We have to settle the issues.
PAY REVISION as per 7th CPC is not an easy issue to be settled. We have to struggle a lot for that.
NOTHING WILL COME AUTOMATICALLY AS SOME PEOPLE THINK.
WE HAVE STARTED OUR WORK. LET US MOVE AHEAD WITH CLEAR UNDERSTANDING AND PROGRAMMES. WE ARE ON A DIFFICULT TERRAIN. WE SHALL OVERCOME ALL DIFFICULTIES AND ACHIEVE IT.
