The 78.2% IDA Pension Fixation was ordered for BSNL pensioners after sustained struggle and strikes. It was stated in the order itself that the same should be settled before 31st December 2016. But mainly due to shortage of staff in the CCA offices, a large number of cases are still pending, although more than one month is over after the last date.
Com.V.A.N.Namboodiri, Advisor, AIBDPA today met Shri Prabhat Singh, Member (Finance) and discussed the matter. He demanded that the cases be settled without further delay by making necessary arrangements, either by posting extra staff or through deputation etc. Pensioners are very unhappy at the undue delay and their cases should settled at the earliest. Member (Finance) agreed that necessary steps will be taken in the matter.
On demand by Com.Namboodiri, Member (F) stated that the implementation of minimum pension and pension for those retired before 2006, with out the 33 years service condition, is being processed, after some CCAs have sought clarification.
