He said that we fought and got 78.2% Pension revision orders  after 3 years but there was a heavy delay in all circles about issuing pension revision orders. He said that our All India association is thinking for some type of agitation like post card campaign to PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA.

The court had now given the judgment in favour of us and about 4230 pensioners would get benefit out of this. He said that as on 23-12-16 CCA Tamilnadu has released pension revision orders for 1550 cases for pre 2007 pensioners and as on 20-01-2017, about 1590 cases of post 2007 pensioners. He said now 4 new adhoc JA/SA officers had recruited by CCA TN and 6 members of our association are doing honourary job in helping them for processing the cases. He hoped that the things would move further fast. 

 

Com K. Muthiyalu said that he along with com V. Ramarao met CMD BSNL in Chennai recently  and gave a memorandum to expedite the pension revision works at BSNL Tamilnadu units.

WE HAVE WON THE ANOMALY CASE

.We have won the case on Pension anomaly of those who retired from BSNL during the period from October 2000 and June 2001. It is another feather on the cap of AIBSNLPWA.

I appreciate the great work done by our Legal Committee consisting of Com. D Gopalakrishnan, Com. R L Kapoor and Late Com. Chhidu Singh (Com. R H Mitkary is the member of the committee now in place of Com. Chhidu Singh.)

They spent days and months to collect all materials relevant to the case. The Advocate Shri Naresh Kaushik pleaded the case brilliantly on behalf of our Association. Advocate could plead it properly because of the feedback he received from our Legal Committee.The Judgement in full (24 pages) is uploaded below. By clicking on the link you can see the full judgement. I hope better sense will prevail on the top officers in DoT and issue necessary orders without going for an appeal and prolong the legal battle. Let us wait and see.

MEMORANDUM TO CMD

Today, on 31-12-2016, Com. G Natarajan (GS) and Com. K Muthiyalu (Org. Secretary) submitted a memorandum to the CMD BSNL who was in Chennai demanding

immediate action to complete the work on 78.2% and restoration of medical allowance without voucher to the BSNL retirees. CMD assured to examine both. 

IDA RATE REDUCED FROM NEW YEAR DAY

CASHLESS = LESS CASH = LESS INDEX = LESS IDA

The Labour Bureau of India has officially released the All India Consumer Price Index (AICPI) for the month of November 2016. It is 277 Points. AICPI for October was 278 Points and for September it was 277 Points. Three months’ average is 277.33.   

Based on the above average the IDA from January 2017 will be119.5%. There will be a decrease of 0.8% from the existing rate of 120.3%.

 

Recent action of withdrawal of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 Notes rendered large section of the people cashless. It reduced their purchasing power. It affected the small scale trade, the markets. In turn, it affected the price and Index also.

 

The advisors of Prime Minister deal with Credit Cards and Smart Cards. They do not know the stark reality in the villages and small towns and in the ordinary families.

 

This is the result of a good scheme implemented without proper planning, without proper preparation and without understanding the ground reality. Financial experts trained by world Bank or IMF or US based Institutions do not know what the real India is.

We are moving into a new year…..

Our Vice President Com. D Gopalakrishnan spoke to Shri S K Jain, DDG(EST) of Department of Telecom yesterday.

78.2 Revision:

Com. DG pointed out undue delay in processing the cases in most of the Circles. The target date is fast approaching but the work is very sluggish. DDG told that he checked up with UP East Circle. There, more than 50% of he cases are settled. Com. DG pointed out that it is not the case with other Circles. For example; in Tamilnadu Circle hardly 20% cases have been settled. Then DDG informed that Directorate has issued two reminders to all CCAS. It will be followed up.

Benefits of seventh CPC:

Com. DG reminded the DDG of our discussion last month regarding issuance of orders extending the benefit of Seventh CPC report on upper limit of Gratuity, new Commutation, Minimum Pension etc. to the BSNL IDA pensioners. DDG informed that DoT has sought guidance from Department of Pension in this regard. As soon as the guidance is received from DOPW necessary orders will be issued.

[Today, Com. D Gopalakrishnan spoke to Mr. Harjeet Singh, a senior officer in Department of Pension about the above reference from DoT. According to Mr. Singh there is no need of any fresh approval. DoT can issue orders based on earlier approval. Then, Com. DG sent an Email to DDG Establishment to issue the orders without delay. Let us see how Directorate is moving.]

ANOMALY CASE: ARGUMENTS OVER

Com. R L Kapoor reports from Delhi that today, CAT Principal Bench took up the case filed by our Association regarding anomaly faced by those BSNL employees who retired without completing ten months in BSNL. Government advocate wanted postponement of the case; but the judge did not allow that.Arguments are over today. Judgement is reserved.It can be expected soon. Let us hope the best.

78.2% IDR BENEFIT AND COURT CASE

Dear Friends,All are aware that the financial benefit out of 78.2 % is granted from 10-6-2013 because the serving staff of BSNL was given from that date only. To the pensioners, it should have been given from 1-1-2007. But, DoT proposed it from 10-6-2013 in the Cabinet Note and the Cabinet approved it. It is understood that some people are now collecting money and vakkalathnama from pensioners to file a case in CAT to get the benefit from 1-1-2007. If any Pensioner gives money to such people, it is his/her responsibility.We also thought of filing a case but postponed a decision for number of reasons;   



1. We want that the present order should be implemented as early as possible. The target date is 31-12-2016. From the reports we feel that no Circle will complete the work before the date. Staff shortage in CCA offices is the main reason. Lethargic attitude towards pensioners is another. We must concentrate on this aspect now. We should get the benefit of the order without further delay. A court case challenging the order should not be an impediment to the ongoing process.

2. The Court Case is a time consuming exercise. In 2010, the CGPA Kerala filed a case for getting pension @ 50% of Last Pay Drawn for the pre-2006 people. Even after six years the case is not taken up for hearing. Cases filed in 2005 are taken up now. That means the CGPA case will be taken up in 2020 or 2021. In 2014, our Association filed a case in Principal bench of CAT to get the pension anomaly removed. [We did not collect money from the concerned pensioners.] It was listed several times and postponed every time. It may be taken up for hearing in 2017. So, if a case is filed in 2017 demanding 78.2% from 1-1-2007, it may be taken up after 4-5 years. Nobody can predict nature of the Court decision. If it is in favour of pensioners, the government will go on appeal to High Court and Supreme Court.    



3. Our Association will make all efforts, including approaching the PM, to get the benefit from 1-1-2007.For us, a regular system to revise our pension along with the central government pensioners in India is the most important issue. Similarly, we are trying to get a decision by the Government to grant pension at the rate of 50% of Last Pay Drawn to all who rendered qualifying service of ten years, irrespective of the date of their retirement. Everybody retired before 1-1-2006 should get it.….At this stage, we are not contemplating to file any court case. When we decide we will intimate all.………………. P S Ramankutty

Pensioners – Aadhaar Seeding not Mandatory

There is no proposal to make Aadhar mandatory for release of pension to the central government pensioners, Parliament was told on Wednesday.“There is, at present, no proposal to make Aadhaar seeding mandatory for release of pension to the central government pensioners,” said Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh told the Lok Sabha in a written reply.Noting 87 per cent of central government pensioners of all age categories have seeded their bank accounts with Aadhaar number, he said that the government has made efforts to seed accounts of all central government pensioners with Aadhaar numbers so as to enable them to benefit from the additional facility of submission of Digital Life Certificate.“Public Sector Banks are authorised to enroll pensioners for issue of Aadhaar number, including old and infirm pensioners.”This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Dr. Jitendra Singh in written reply to a question by Shri Natubhai Gomanbhai Patel in the Lok Sabha yesterday.
