By refusing to revise the pension by 15% as per the recommendations of the III Pay Revision Committee for PSUs, the Government is violating the assurances given at the time of corporatisation. The condition of affordability mentioned in the report is not applicable to the pensioners as the full pension is given by government as per Rule 37A of the CCS (Pension) Rules. BSNL has already paid pension contribution at the maximum of the scale. It is gross injustice not to grant pension revision to these pensioners.
AIBDPA has taken the issue with the government and is perusing the case strongly.
