Government says that Pension Revision of BSNL retirees can be granted only after pay Revision is done. Pay revision is delayed stating that BSNL is unable to grant the same with 15% due to non-affordability.
BSNL may not be able to implement Pay revision with 15% due to its bad finance condition. But Pension is to be paid by Government. BSNL has already paid pension contribution at the maximum of the scale, an unbelievable condition laid by the government for BSNL alone.
In such a condition, when the pension contribution is already made, what is the difficulty for the government to pay pension revision, except that it is against the pensioners.
AIBDPA has rightly demanded and taken with the government that Pension Revision should be made as recommended by the III PRC for the PSUs.
