Sub: 30% Superannuation benefits for the employees recruited by BSNL
Even 13 years after formation of BSNL, the retirement benefits of the employees appointed by it, have not been finalised. The 2nd PRC recommended 30% superannuation benefit to all the direct recruit employees of BSNL and the Govt decided to implement this recommendation as a social security measure in all the CPSUs. As per DPE guidelines, an amount of 30% of the emoluments can be utislied towards retirement benefits, including GPF, Insurance etc. As per the agreement reached between the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations and the BSNL Management on 12.06.2012, the Management agreed to review their earlier decision against implementation of 30% superannuation benefit. Now the BSNL Management is limiting it to about 20% without any justification, causing great loss to this section of employees.
The Forum demands that immediate action be taken to ensure 30% retirement benefits to the BSNL recruited employees as this is related to superannuation and social security.
