It is more than 15 years since the last pension revision was implemented for BSNL pensioners with effect from 01-01-2007. Pension revision is due from 01-01-2017, but the government is silent on the issue. All the Pensioners’ Associations as well as employees’ Unions have placed the demand, but still nothing has been done by the central government. Full justification exists for Pension revision.
The government should take a decision and implement Pay Revision with 15% fitment wef 01.01.2017.
BSNLEU has rightly demanded that a New Promotion Policy is required for the non-executives in BSNL. It is about 12 years that the last Non-Executive Promotion Policy was implemented.
While in DOT, most of the non-executives had only two time bound promotions, one after 16 years and the second after 26 years. These were implemented in the 1980-90s and then recognised union NFTE agreed for ban on recruitment as also surrender of posts for getting the 2 promotions accepted by the Government.
After recognition of BSNLEU in 2004, it placed the demand for 5 time bound promotions, after every 6 years, with out any surrender of posts or ban on recruitment. 4 promotions after every 8 years was agreed by the management without any surrender of posts or ban on recruitment. Those BSNL absorbed DOT officials were granted first promotion after 4 years and second promotion after 7 years considering their long service without promotions in DOT.
Those officials who have been recruited in BSNL are yet to get their third promotion. 8 years is a long period in the present period as also in discrimination with the Executive Promotion Policy. It is time for a New promotion Policy considering all aspects mentioned above. The government should consider the demand fvourably.
