22-05-2016 –

So many queries are being received from members about the payment of pension arrears to VRS Optees. Time & again GS has given clarifications and replied the queries. The efforts of the association are given through Whatsapp, website and facebook on each and every occasion. There are two type of payments of pension arrear for VRS Optees – 1st due to implementation of 6th CPC and 2nd due to implementation of 2nd PRC. MTNL has already paid arrear payment  upto Dec-2006 due to 6th CPC and for rest of the period , CCA office has referred the case to DOT for decision. After persuasion of GS Sh S S Nanda for Arrear payment due to 2nd PRC , MTNL and CCA Authorities have reached to a common decision to make this payment on the basis of Last Pay Drawn. MTNL has started the process of calculations. It is expected that after completing the formalities, as desired by CCA,  payment of VRS Optees pension arrear will be started by next month in a phased manner. This all has been possible due to continuous and persistent efforts of the Association representatives.

GS Sh S S Nanda has been pursuing the matter with all concerned authorities, arranging meetings between CCA and MTNL Delhi authorities. GS is further pursuing the case at every platform of Management / Administration in MTNL / CCA / DOT with full sincerity and honesty.

 It has come to the notice of the Association representatives that some members are planning to move to court of law for pension arrear. It may harm the process of deciding the issue at Management level. They are advised to have the patience and faith in Association and not to move to court of law at this juncture.

A delegation comprising of S/Shri M.K.Bagchi,Convener/U.F,Prahlad Rai, GS/AIBSNLEA, S.S. Nanda, GS/RTOWA,Delhi, Kishan Singh,GS/AIRBSNLEWA, Chandrasekhar Singh,GS/NFTE(BSNL), Mange Ram Sharma,President / U.F and  A.K.Kaushik, GS/TEAM met Shri N. Sivasailam, additional Secretary (T)/DOT to discuss the prospects of taking up the issue of the pension revision of the pensioners of BSNL and MTNL with the Empowered Committee constituted in connection with the recommendations of the 7th CPC. We have pointed out that even though 7th CPC failed to make any reference of this issue in their recommendations, still there is a scope to take up this issue with the Empowered Committee through the Implementation Cell which DOT is supposed to constitute. This is apparent from the DO No.1-4/2015-EIII(A) dated 21.11.2015 of Ms Annie George Mathew, Jt.Secretary (Pers.), Min.of Finance, Deptt. of Expenditure.

 

Shri Sivasailam informs that DOT has already constituted its Implementation Cell with Shri S.C.Sharma, DDG/CA as the Nodal Officer. He has assured us of taking up this issue appropriately with the Implementation Cell of DOT.

The delegation immediately reached our representation on this to Shri S.C. Sharma, Nodal Officer also.
