It is understood that the BSNL Management Committee has approved the proposal of 3rd Pay Revision Committee with full 15% fitment for the executives w.e.f 01.01.2017. However this will have to be approved by the full BSNL Board with DOT Director/s.

In the above case, the Management should start wage negotiation immediately with the recognised unions of the non-executives in BSNL. As for the BSNL absorbed DOT Pensioners, the government should take necessary action to implement wage revision with 15% fitment, since the pension is to be paid by the government itself. Pensioners are senior citizens and their case needs immediate attention.
