          All members of Delhi and Mumbai to note please -

Many members are regularly querying about 5% IDA neutralization for the combine pensioners of MTNL.

 

Friends, RTOWA Delhi Association Representatives are continuously pursuing the issue of 5% IDA neutralization at appropriated levels of DoT and updating the members accordingly. The payment of 5% IDA neutralization for working employees was made by MTNL which is approved by MTNL Board. But for pensioners, the payment is to be made by DoT and DoT requires the approval of Cabinet.  In pensioners case, cabinet note is prepared by DoT after examination of the proposal  by Finance , Establishment , pension section etc. of the DOT.  The process of examination of the proposal by different units of DoT is under process. It is lengthy process and will take time to release the final orders for payment.

So, please have patience & wait.

Pt 7- Association representative showed their displeasure for the  long pending legitimate demand of the VRS optees. The demand was principally agreed by the than  Dir(F) but still the decision on the issue is being delayed by one reason or the other. CMD agreed to review the issue.

*Pt 8. Association representatives told that a letter has already been sent on dated 03-07-2018 to CMD MTNL to process the case of 5% IDA neutralization for the combined pensioners of MTNL. CMD assured that the case will be processed and sent to DOT within this week.*

It was clarified by management that it is purely a proposal of MTNL management for MTNL survival,  neither DOT/ BSNL or Govt has asked for it

 

salient point of proposal are as under--

 

1.    Merger of MTNL with BSNL is not the proposal but necessity for both the companies. Govt should take loan liability of 17000/- crores with the surplus land of MTNL worth about 20,000/ crore.

2.    Pay parity of MTNL and BSNL employees with making higher pay of MTNL employees as personal pay to protect the pay of MTNL employees.

3.    VRS on Gujrat model.

4.    Promotions , perks and allowances at par with BSNL.

5.    Optional voluntary retirement with increment of left out service upto maximum five increments.

An appeal to the retirees...

Some self interested people are posting wrong  information’s to the retirees. It is wrong that the demands of retirees are not included in the posters. The poster which is being mentioned is published when combined programme was not given. Please see the latest poster, which includes the demands of retirees. United Forum did not bother to include some of the demands of retirees, such as Time Bound Promotion of VRS opted, full reimbursement of amount paid for CGHS facility. Even the demand of revision of pension was included after lot of requests and arguments after one year. The claim to settle various issues.. is the combined efforts of all constituents of UF. RTOWA played a leading roll. The ambitions of some persons to snatch RTOWA cannot be tolerated. We were used as a tool for funds and to gather the crowd for agitation purpose. Everyone is praising the working of the association. Management is solving our problems. These people should concentrate on their association rather than interfering in our association. We have given our blood for this. Why more than 12 constituents left the UF. It should be thought. Members have chosen us to work as we doing and not for dirty politics. We are not against any association, Forum. I appeal to all the retirees to have faith in your leadership who are working day and night for the welfare of our worthy members. Please join demonstration organized under banner of joint forums of retirees and working in enmass.

    II.        CGHS Issue - Last date for applying for reimbursement – Matter was discussed with CMD who informed that they have taken a decision that last date will be extended till all the PPO’s released. Regarding reimbursement of full amount deposited by pensioners – CMD is reluctant to reimburse the full amount paid by the retirees but Association is still trying to achieve the demand.

It was pointed out by the members that CGHS authorities have doubled deposit amount wef 1st February 2017. Those retirees retired upto March-2014 to whom the PPO books have not been issued have to suffer for no fault of theirs. It was proposed that resolution be approved in the house to ask the MOH to charge old rates from these retirees or MTNL or DOT should beer the extra deposit amount. House unanimously approved it.

He further informed the house that retirees issues are not being taken in the UF and working of some of the associates of UF is not in the interest of retirees. After having threadbare discussions and keeping in view the interest of RTOWA and the retirees, house unanimously approved the decision to disassociate RTOWA from the UF.

3.    Revision of pension – GS informed the House that association is working hard to achieve the pension revision. The pension for MTNL retirees may be revised on the basis of 3rd PRC or 7th CPC. A lot of discussion has been held on the two methods of pension revision. It has been found that revision of pension on the basis of 3rd PRC is disadvantageous to us. Association may move for pension revision on the basis of 7th CPC which is applicable for MTNL / BSNL retirees as per the CCS(Pension ) rules.

This issue was discussed in the house and the members put their view points on the pension revision issue.

It was decided that association should move for pension revision case on the basis of 7th CPC.
