The discussion of Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations in connection with the two days strike with the Secretary, DOT with all the Members and top level officers of DOT on 1st May 2015 had its effect. As assured by the Secretary, DOT, the file has started moving. The note prepared by Estt. is approved by the Finance and the final Cabinet note is being prepared. It may take a few days. The it will be sent to the other connected departments viz. Finance (Expenditure), Law, DPE, and pension. Once their approvals are received the file will go the Minister and then to the Cabinet.
AIBDPA and Forum are trying their best to speed up the matter so that the pensioners will get the 78.2% IDA pension fixation at the earliest.
