The Remuneration Committee of BSNL has approved the Gratuity Scheme for the casual workers engaged in BSNL. BSNLCCWF has taken the issue with the Parliamentary Standing Committee, after which the BSNL Management started the process. The BSNL Management Committee after approving the scheme has sent it to the Remuneration Committee which has adopted the same. Now the next meeting of the BSNL Board is expected to approve the same after which orders could be issued.

According to the scheme the benefit will be available w.e.f. 01-10-2000. the date on which BSNL was formed. This is a great achievement for the casual labours.
