The contract workers engaged in BSNL have not been paid the Bonus for  this year. The plea that there are no funds is not tenable. Bonus is a right of the workers as per Bonus Act and BSNL is liable to pay it.

BSNL Casual and Contract Workers federation has taken up the case with the management. The BSNL Management should look in to the matter urgently and ensure that the same is paid early.
