We are reproducing the post in the website of SNEA on Pension Revision of BSNL Pensioners.

“GS and President met Shri Prabhash Singh, Member(T&S), Telecom Commission on 09.03.2018 and held discussions on the following issues:

a) Pension revision for the Govt pensioners retired from BSNL with 15% fitment: We explained the meeting with the Hon Minister and the Secretary on the issue on 24.02.2018 in which Hon Minister directed DoT to take actions for the pension revision. The revision is due w.e.f 01.01.2017. Pension revision is not related with the affordability or paying capacity of BSNL. Union Cabinet already decided a fitment of 15% for the pay revision which will be applicable for the pensioners also. In 2007, Cabinet approved 30% fitment for the pay revision and the same was extended to the pensioners also. Accordingly we requested to move a Cabinet note separately for pension revision of the pensioners with 15% fitment, w.e.f 01.01.2017. Member(Services) assured to do the needful and told us to meet again in the first week of April for further discussions.”

We thank the SNEA leaders for demanding and taking up the issue of Pension Revision in the correct perspective.
