“I have Voluntarily retired, but I have not retired” -( Quote.)

This may be applicable to the more than 78,000 officials in BSNL who accepted VRS and retired. Though retired, their claims are not fully settled as in the case of exgratia payment, gratuity etc. Even otherwise, their mind is always with the future of BSNL, and its workers. Most of the employees have gone on VRS, due to the peculiar circumstances that existed. They continue to be part of the BSNL fraternity, like those who retired earlier also.
