Com. V.A.N.Namboodiri, Advisor, AIBDPA today, 20th March 2015, met Shri A.K.Bhargava, Member (Technology) and discussed about the early finanlisation of the Cabinet Note on 78.2% IDA pension fixation for the BSNL Pensioners, who retired before 10-06-2013. While the representatives of the AIBDPA met Shri Rakesh Garg, Secretary, Telecom, last week, he has stated that M(T) has been entrusted with the work.
Com. Namboodiri expressed his serious concern and unhappiness in the extreme delay in preparing the Cabinet Note and stated that already many pensioners have already expired without getting the fixation and more may die, if the issue is delayed further. He also pointed out that while the BSNL pensioners retired after 10-06-2013 had got the fixation, it is denied to all who retired before 10-06-2013, which is a big discrimination. He demanded for early preparation for the Cabinet Note.
Member(T) assured that the matter is being examined and the Cabinet Note will be prepared at the earliest.
