Though BSNL (absorbed from DOT) retirees are eligible for pension revision w.e.f. 01-01-2017, no orders have been issued so far. The III Pay Revision Committee has already submitted its report with 15% fitment, although with certain conditions like affordability clause. The pension is being paid by government and the government is taking pension contribution from the BSNL (for the maximum of the pay scale instead of the actual pay) which is much higher. Hence, there should be no delay in the pension revision. The BSNL employees are on struggle to get wage revision which is their due, waiving the unnecessary and unwanted conditions.
AIBDPA is on continuous struggle for getting the pension revision. Well attended dharna has been organised and thousands of Post Cards with the demand have reached the DOT from the AIBDPA members. We demand that the DOT / Government take immediate decision and pay the pension revision to the pensioners on the basis of 15% fitment as recommended by the III PRC on IDA scales.
