NAMBOOTHIRI MEETS MEMBER (FINANCE)….78.2%
Once again today, 1st July, Com. V.A.N.Namboodiri, Convener, Forum and Advisor AIBDPA met Ms. Annie Moraes, Member (Finance) and conveyed the deep resentment and dissatisfaction of the workers on the undue delay in issuance of the orders on 78.2% IDA merger for the BSNL Pensioners, who retired before June 2014.
Even the reply to the queries raised by the Department of Expenditure have not been furnished. There have been differences in the DOT itself how to settle the issue. From the discussion with Member (Finance) it became clear that the DOT is of the opinion that Cabinet decision is required in the matter. This is most unfortunate. After delaying the matter more than one year, further delay is going to take place.
The Forum as well as AIBDPA has to seriously discuss what should be the next step for early resolution of the issue, so that our senior comrades get their due claims.
