IDA to get reduced by 1.1% w.e.f. 01st April, 2021.

As per the latest Consumer Price Index, released by the Labour Bureau yesterday, the 31st March, 2021, IDA rate is to get reduced by 1.1%, w.e.f. 01st April, 2021. Accordingly, the 171.5% IDA that has become due from 01.01.2021, will get reduced to 170.4%, w.e.f. 01.04.2021. Hence, the quantum of IDA increase, that remains to be paid to the Non-Executives of BSNL is 10.5%. The CHQ of BSNLEU is pressurising the BSNL Management to take steps to pay this IDA increase at the earliest. BSNL Management has referred the matter to the DoT. (BSNLEU Website)
