The unwarranted delay on the part of the DOT Finance to release the order on Pension Revision of pre-2007 BSNL retirees is unacceptable. The Cabinet has approved the Cabinet Note on this issue more than one month back. We recognise that some time is required to finalize the order by DOT, but the present delay is not at all justified. Thousands of pre-2007 BSNL retirees are waiting day after day for this order which will give relief in their pension, which benefit has already been granted to all central employees years back.
That is why, the All India BSNL-DOT Pensioners Association (AIBDPA) as also BSNLEU have given call for organising protest demonstration on 7th March 2011 in front of the BSNL offices/exchanges. Make it a grand success with massive participation. Give wide publicity in the media. Let us make maximum pressure so that the DOT issues the order without any further delay.
