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.

2.      CGHIS – Contributory Group Health Insurance scheme – This scheme is run by MTNL management. All MTNL retirees are getting medical facility under this scheme. We broadly call it MTNL indoor Medical Facility.

The copy of letter is given on RTOWA website.

MTNL Corporate Office has circulated a modified Annexure – G which is a “Self Declaration Form for availing MTNL CGHIS Facility”. Thus MTNL retirees have to give a declaration that those who want to avail themselves of MTNL CGHIS facility, must give undertaking that they will bear the 50% of CGHIS premium. Simultaneously MTNL Corporate Office has enhanced the annual premium for CGHIS policy substantially as follows:-

Annual Premium for CGHIS Policy :

1     For single beneficiary  :   Rs 5393/- + Tax as applicable

2     For double beneficiary : Rs 8944/- + Tax as applicable

i.e   As per the orders retirees will have to pay 50% of the premium amount plus Service Tax which is more than Rs. 5000/= for both husband and wife beneficiary and Rs. 3000/= for single beneficiary.

RTOWA took initiative and wrote a strong letter on the Joint Forum platform to CMD MTNL.
