DOT Sanctions Rs. 3021 crore for payment of Ex-gratia to BSNL VRS retirees.
DoT has issued orders allotting Rs. 3,021 crores for the payment of ex-gratia to the BSNL VRS retirees. AIBDPA has been continuously pressing for the same and letters were sent to the Communications Minister and DOT. This order has been issued today, 26-06-2020. This amount should be paid to the retirees before 30th June 2020.
But this will be only about 50% of the requirement of Rs. 6,000 crores, which is necessary for payment of ex-gratia. The balance also should be allotted without any further delay.
