BSNLCCWF has been continuously demanding for implementation of gratuity to the casual and contract labours. This was raised in the Parliament Standing Committee on Labour. The matter was discussed with the Chief Labour Commissioner also. The CLC asked the management representatives why it is not implemented and stated that as per rules gratuity is to be paid.
It is understood now that BSNL Board today has approved gratuity for casual labours. Already much delay has happened. The management should issue orders early.
