11-09-2016 – RTOWA Delhi News - Appeal to VRS Optees-

RTOWA is committed to resolve the problems of retirees. This association has resolved many problems of the retirees particularly Govt.Pension, Revision of pension from 2007 and the pension arrear, VRS issues ,CGHS issue and other important issues. We are aware of the very important issue i.e TIME BOUND PROMOTION of VRS Optees. The association has taken up this case at all levels. The case was discussed with CMD, DIR(Fin), DIR(HR). In all our formal meetings we are pressing MTNL management to resolve this issue. But the result has not come to our satisfaction. The very important issue like Revision of Pension and payment of arrears was on priority and we have resolved these issues. There was some delay in some cases, but the issue was ultimately resolved.

Few of our members are always in hurry to get all the problems resolved in one go. Now a day, it is very difficult to get any issue resolved with MTNL due to its financial position.

Some of the VRS retirees are planning to go to court of law for time bound promotion. These people seem to be misled by the forces who do not want the RTOWA to function smoothly. Going to Court of Law will complicate the issue. It will give MTNL management an excuse not to resolve the problem across the table.

Association has many important issues in hand Viz. Pension revision w.e.f Jan 2017 and CGHS issues which Association is trying to resolve across the table by discussion with different levels of management . Going to court of law at this juncture will have a adverse impact on these issues.

Hence we appeal to the affected members to wait. It is not the right time to go to court of law.  Let the arrears be paid to all. We will pressurize Management to get it resolved across the table at the earliest.

 

Hoping the members will cooperate.

11-09-2016 – RTOWA Delhi News – CGHS Status –

 It is known to all that with the great efforts and persuasion of RTOWA,  MTNL management and DOT have issued orders for implementation of CGHS facility to MTNL / BSNL retirees. But the CGHS authorities have raised the objection that they want ‘the equivalent CDA Basic Pay at the time of retirement’ to be mentioned on the PPO Book. They are not ready to accept the DOT orders for it.

Calculating the equivalent Basic Pay of each and every retiree is very difficult task and MTNL management does not have the resources to calculate it.

Association is taking this issue at all levels of management and finding the possible solutions to resolve this problem.

We appeal to all retirees to have patience and wait till this problem is resolved. Association has already reached to a deciding stage to get the orders of CGHS issued and we are determined to get other problems resolved at the association level.

Moreover, members may note that MTNL indoor / outdoor Medical scheme will continue till finalization of CGHS scheme. They should not be worry about it.

Members should cooperate in resolving this problem.

GS RTOWA addressed the house and elaborately placed his views to make a broader base for the future fight of the retirees. He said that it is the need of the hour to meet the future challenges like pension revision, merger of 78.2% IDA etc.  He also suggested to form a Coordination committee to fight for the common issues of the retirees of MTNL and BSNL. President, GS and AGS of AIRBSNLWEA also addressed the house and agreed with the proposal  of GS RTOWA. House unanimously agreed for the formation of a coordination committee with RTOWA Delhi and Mumbai. It was also agreed that the chairman of the coordination committee will be president of AIRBSNLWEA and the convener will be GS of RTOWA Delhi. It was also agreed that committee shall have  four members from AIRBSNLWEA , three members each from RTOWA Delhi and Mumbai. GS of each association will give the names of the members.

 

C.   AIBSNLPWA organized a meeting in Bangaluru on 20-06-2016 in which representatives of AIRBSNLWEA and RTOWA Delhi participated. GS Sh S S Nanda and AGS  R K Mudgal attended the meeting. President of AIRBSNLWEA chaired the meeting. Sh Ganga Dhar Rao AGS addressed the house and briefed about the activities  of his association on the issue of pension revision. He told that they had a number of meetings with the officers of DOT, DOPT and Jt. Secy of 7th CPC on the issue of pension revision. He insisted that if all pensioner associations of BSNL and MTNL come under a same umbrella than definitely we would be able to achieve the goal. He also told that the stand of his association is to negotiate only with 7th CPC for pension revision and not with 3rd PRC, otherwise the issue will be diluted. On the other hand , chairman of the meeting, GS RTOWA and AGS AIRBSNLWEA were of the opinion that there is no harm if this issue is also persuade with 3rd PRC simultaneously. After going through with all the deliberations Sh Ganga Dhar Rao told that they are having their all India Meet in the second week of November 2016 in Rajpura. In that meeting his association will call the representatives of other retired Associations to discuss the matter and take a decision. All the participants unanimously were of the opinion that there should be a broader all India base so that future challenges of retirees would be fought with full strength and commitment to achieve the legitimate issues.  He also said that he will discuss the today’s  deliberations in his ECM. House also agreed to chalk out a combined trade union programme in near future for the demand of pension revision of BSNL and MTNL pensioners. GS RTOWA assured the house to give full support of his association in Delhi for making the agitational  programme a historic.

 

RTOWA will remain in touch with these retired associations to fight for the pension revision and other issues of the retirees.
