The Department of Personnel and Training vide its letter No. clearly has indicated that the pension contribution on deputation on foreign service should be on the basis of the actual basic pay of the official. But in the case of pension contribution of the BSNL absorbed DOT employees, pension contribution is demanded by the DOT on the maximum of the pay scale of the official. This is not correct.
The direction of the DOT to pay contribution at the maximum of the pay scale is resulting in much extra money being paid by the BSNL, which is already in loss.
The Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations had already taken the issue with the DOT. The DOT should do justice to the BSNL by modifying its earlier decision.
