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.

Further, house authorized GS to take the required decision any time  to coordinate or  associate with any other association / union to achieve the pension revision of MTNL retirees.

A Meeting of JOINT FORUM OF MTNL RETIREES UNIONS & ASSOCIATIONS was held on 8th February 2017 at 13 Hrs  in 6th Floor Canteen K L Bhawan. The meeting was attended by all leaders of the joint forum constituents.

The ongoing issues of retirees viz. CGHS Medical facility, Preparation of PPO Books of old retirees, 78.2% IDA merger and Pension revision wef 01-01-0217 was discussed. Representatives of all participant Unions and Associations committed to fight unitedly to achieve the pending issues of the retirees.

10-02-2017  - NEWS OF UNITED FORUM

The representatives of united forum of MTNL Unions and associations have met Additional secretary(T)/DOT ,Sh. N. Sivasailam on 10/02/2017) in a pre-sheduled meeting on the following agenda:----

1.     Merger of MTNL & BSNL 

       & 2.  Merger of 50% DA effectively amounting to 78.2% as on 01.01.2007 to MTNL employees and  pensions(pension as on combined basis)

As regards merger of MTNL  and BSNL , we have highlighted our well known points of view in this respect. We have insisted that this is a “life and death” question for MTNL and this is an issue that relates to the job security of thousands employees of MTNL and most of them are of  erstwhile DOT recruits. Additional Secretary points out that the main hurdle of such merger is that MTNL is a listed company and BSNL is 100% owned by Government. This add to the complication in deciding merger. When we draw his attention to the ways and means of such merger in the given situation as recommended  by various committees , he says that their suggestion is on the line of substantial investments by the Government as a pre-condition which may not be favoured by Government. He inturn, suggests that MTNL has inherent capacity and expertise to improve services even at this stage. The expansion of broad band connections and urgent and meaningful use of assets by way of renting out etc. hold the key to MTNL’s turn around .He has insisted that unions and associations can play pivotal role in this respect.

    As regards “Merger of 50% DA effectively amounting to 78.2% as on 01-01-2007” he informs that the proposal sent by MTNL includes the need of financial assistance by the Government for its implementation and  DOT cannot decide such matter on its own. After quite some discussions, when we insisted that in absence of implementation, MTNL employees will be permanently deprived of this part of DA neutralization, he says that DOT will send this proposal to D.P with DOT’s recommendations. He also says that left to him alone he favours implementation, but DOT alone cannot decide this. On our specific query: whether we can remain hopeful, his cryptic reply was : one should always remain hopeful.

         Meeting lasts for 1.5 hrs and ends with some positive note.

02-02-2017 - UNITED FORUM DELHI NEWS: Meeting with Member(Services) DOT -

The representatives of United forum of MTNL Unions & Associations met Member (Services) in a pre-scheduled meeting today. The agendas, e.g.(1) merger of MTNL & BSNL (2) Merger of 50%  DA effectively amounting to 78.2% as on 01.01.2007 to MTNL employees and pensioners and issues related to C.G.H.S the briefs on which were submitted  earlier, were discussed thoroughly .Issue of pro-rata pensioners  also was discussed. DDG (Estt.) was also present in the meeting.

  As regards Merger of MTNL & BSNL, Member (services) informs that Secretary / DOT is quite affirmative about this. But some consensus approach is required between the Unions and Associations of both MTNL and BSNL. On management side also from both MTNL and BSNL, some united approach is required. This helps DOT/Ministry to take decisive decision on this. At present there is a move for uniting the wireless network and services of MTNL and BSNL. But that too faces problem from different perceptions between MTNL and BSNL. As regards the issue of merger of 50% DA , Member (Services) tries to know exact financial implication both for current payment as well as for arrears. Member (Services) informs that this issue is still under the domain of SU and advised us to deal with Add. Secretary. As regards issue of C.G.H.S Member (Services) informed that DOT is taking up the matter with Director (CGHS) , Nirman Bhawan for its implementation at Mumbai. But as regards the matter of our suggestion that enhanced rate of contributions should not be applicable for MTNL /BSNL, he is sceptic. He agrees to take up the issue with MTNL for full reimbursement of amount to the concerned pensioners against contribution. The issue of another scope of fresh pension options for the pro-rata pensioners, we have updated him the present status of the issue and requested him to use his good office so that MTNL sends the reports to DOT as called for.
