As is well known, Pay Revision Committee (PRC) for the executives of all the Central PSUs used to be appointed by the Government, which will recommend the pay scales to be implemented according to the status of the PSU being decided by it on several criteria. This was done for the last time in 2007.

For the non-executives in each PSU, the management will discuss the wage revision with the recognised union/s and the Wage Agreement reached will be implemented. Last time this was done in BSNL also w.e.f. 01-01-2007.

Now it is understood that the Government is proposing Pay Revision of executives for each  PSU separately as was done in the case of non-executives.

But the important matter is that it is high time that the Pay Revision / Wage revision in BSNL should start without delay. The recognised unions should take up the matter with out any delay. Once the recommendations of the VII Central Pay Commission are out, the demand will become stronger.
