Com. V.A.N.Namboodiri, Advisor, AIBDPA today, 5th June 2016, met Shri Anupam Shrivstava, CMD BSNL and discussed the following issues raised with regard to the BSNL Pensioners:
1. Restoration of quarterly medical allowance to the BSNL pensioners.
2. Reducing of rent for the quarters allotted to the retirees.
3. Extension of broadband concession to DoT pensioners.
4. Anomaly in pension due to point to point fixation; seniors drawing less than juniors.
Com.Namboodiri pointed out the hardships being suffered by the BSNL Pensioners due to the non-settlement of these demands and demanded that these issues be settled at the earliest. CMD agreed to consider favourably.
Com. Namboodiri suggested to the CMD BSNL that all the state governments and PSUs be approached intimating the present improvement of the BSNL services requesting them to take BSNL services, if they have not already taken. CMD stated that this is a good suggestion.
