04.12.2018: The details of AUAB meeting held with Hon’ble MoSC(I/C) on 03.12.2018 is as under:-

1.  4G Spectrum Allocation to BSNL: Non-allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL has been a major handicap for BSNL growth. The assurance given by the Hon’ble MoS(C) in this regard in 24thFeb., 2018, was not implemented. In yesterday’s meeting, the Hon’ble MoS(C) intimated that the Cabinet Note on the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL is already circulated to the other ministries for comments. He also assured to depute a senior officer of the DoT to those nodal ministries to quicken the process. Once this process is completed, the Hon’ble MoS(C) assured to take up this issue in the next Cabinet meeting itself. It is assured now that BSNL is going to get 4G spectrum shortly. This is a major break through in the financial revival of BSNL, and undoubtedly a very big achievement of the AUAB.

2.  Pension revision of  BSNL Pensioners: So far, the DoT has been linking pension revision of BSNL pensioners  with the pay revision of the BSNL employees. They have taken a firm stand that pension revision could be done only when pay revision is done to the serving employees. However, in the meeting held with the Secretary(T), DoT on 02.12.2018, and also in the meeting with the Hon’ble MoS(C) on 03.12.2018, the AUAB is informed that pension revision of the retirees is now delinked from the pay revision of the employees and the matter has been send to DoP&PW for consideration. This is a very big achievement of this strike call. AUAB will continue to take all out efforts to ensure that the revision of pension is done at the earliest.

3.  Implementation of government rules in the payment of pension contribution by BSNL: The Hon’ble MoS(C) categorically told that government rule will be implemented, according to which BSNL has to pay pension contribution, based on actual basic pay. A letter has already been gone to the finance ministry, with the recommendation of the DoT. Settlement of this issue, is also a boost for the financial revival of BSNL.    

4.  Left out issues of the 2nd PRC: The BSNL Management has long been demanding that Management should fulfil the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, that 30% of the pay should be contributed by the Management towards superannuation benefits of the Directly Recruited employees. On this issue, the CMD BSNL has assured, in the meeting held with him on 02.12.2018, that BSNL’s contribution towards pension contribution will be increased by another 3%, by March, 2019, and the remaining will be increased thereafter in one go. Thus, the non-implementation of the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, in respect of superannuation benefits is also resolved.   

In addition to this, AIBSNLEA requested for the revision of Pay scales E-1 by E-2, E-2 by E-3 and upgradation of subsequent pay scales E-3 by E-4, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7; Hon’ble MoS(C) directed DoT officers for consideration.

5.  3rd Pay Revision of employees: No final settlement is reached in respect of the 3rd Pay Revision of the employees. It was told in the discussion by the Hon’ble MoS(C) as well as by the Secretary(T), DoT, that pay revision of the employees would be done, but 15% fitment cannot be given. The AUAB representatives gave a detailed presentation to the Hon’ble MoS(C), justifying pay revision with 15% fitment. However, it was not accepted. The AUAB feels that this issue needs to be further persued with the DoT, for which some more time needs to be given.

DoT is constituting a committee of comprising officers of DoT/BSNL and the representatives of AUAB to meet fortnightly  to have a follow-up action on the above issues.

The leaders of the AUAB, in the meeting held after talks with the Hon’ble MoS(C), appreciated the fact that the strike call has brought major achievements to the BSNL employees, and that these achievements have got to be consolidated, by way of implementation of the assurances / issuing of letters. As regards the wage revision is concerned, the AUAB has decided to give some more time to the DoT to sort out the matter. However, struggles become inevitable, if the persuasions of the AUAB fail.

02.11.2018: 3rd Pay Revision+: Meeting between the Secretary, Telecom and the AUAB: A meeting between Ms.Aruna Sundararajan, Secretary, Telecom and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL(AUAB) was held today on 02.11.2018.

At the outset, the representatives of the AUAB pointed out that DoT failed to take appropriate action to implement the assurances given by the Hon'ble MoS(C) in the meeting held on 24-02-2018, in view of which the AUAB has been compelled to go on agitational programme. On the 3rd Pay Revision issue, the Secretary, Telecom assured that the Cabinet Note, for getting the approval of the Cabinet, would be sent at the earliest. The AUAB pointed out that within three months the Pay Revision issue has to be settled fully, otherwise, Parliament elections would be announced; settlement of Pay Revision would become difficult. Secretary informed that some queries are there from IFD, it will be raised by DoT to BSNL in a week and BSNL assured to reply all the queries within one week time, As and when BSNL replies and after the discussion with CMD BSNL it will be processed. AUAB demanded the formalities of Cabinet memo to be completed before this month. Secretary, Telecom assured to act fast.

On the issues of allotment of 4G spectrum, Payment of Pension Contribution on the actual basic pay and Pension Revision issues, very useful discussion took place. On the 4G issue, the Cabinet Note has been sent for inter-ministerial consultation, and at the earliest it will be sent for the approval of the Cabinet. On the issue of Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay instead of maximum of the pay scale, the matter is being recommended for the approval of the Department of Expenditure, with a positive note of the DoT, by next week. On the Pension Revision of BSNL retirees, the Secretary Telecom appeared to be convinced with the arguments of the AUAB, that it should not be linked with the Pay Revision of the serving employees. She directed the Member (Services) to immediately discuss the issue with her. On the 30% Superannuation benefits for the Directly Recruited employees, the Secretary Telecom said that it should be settled by the BSNL. Thereafter CMD assured to examine another 2%.

After the meeting with the Secretary, Telecom, the meeting of the AUAB was held. The meeting expressed it's satisfaction about the discussions on the issues of Allotment of 4G spectrum, Payment of Pension Contribution and Pension Revision. However, the meeting viewed that there is no improvement in the matter of 3rd Pay Revision. Hence, the meeting decided to go ahead with the agitational programme of Rally on 14.11.2018. The meeting called upon the employees to effectively organise the rallies on 14-11-2018. It is decided that the AUAB will again meet on 14-11-2018, to review the situation.
