The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has approved Rs.1,250 crores as compensation for the loss BSNL has incurred in operating rural landline connections. This compensation is for the landlines installed prior to 1st April, 2002. Even though this compensation became due in 2013-14 itself, there was inordinate delay in government's approving the same.

  • 28-07-2016:Qualifying marks further relaxed for SC/ST employees for various departmental examinations.
    BSNLEU is continuously fighting for the strict implementation of the DoP&T orders for relaxation in the qualifying marks of the SC/ST candidates in various departmental examinations. BSNLEU has also conducted various struggles on this demand. As a result of this, a committee was constituted a few months back by the Corporate Management. Based on the recommendations of the committee, Corporate Office has issued order today, further relaxing the qualifying marks for SC/ST candidates in various departmental examinations. This relaxation will be implemented for all the departmental examinations notified after 02.12.2014. Definitely, this is an achievement for the continuous struggle of BSNLEU. However, it is to be noted that even this relaxations are not given as per the DoP&T orders on the subject. Now, BSNLEU will consider taking the next step for making BSNL Management to implement the DoP&T orders in letter and spirit

  • 23-07-2016: Removal of 60% ceiling is an achievement of all times to come-There is a proverb that victory has a hundred fathers, while defeat is always an orphan. We are reminded of this proverb, when some people claim that the government’s liability to pay pension to absorbed BSNL employees was settled by them, by writing a letter to the Prime Minister. Many organisations wrote letters and conducted many agitations also. But the government did not take them seriously. But, the united strength of the Executives and Non-Executives which brought BSNL to a standstill, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, during the 2 day strike held on 21st & 22nd April, 2015, clinched the issue. In almost all circles, even the CGM’s were not allowed to enter the offices. The BSNL employees talked in a language that was understood by the government. This historic struggle forced the government to come to the negotiating table with the Forum on 01.05.2015. In the talks held on that day, for the first time the government accepted that it would remove the 60% ceiling. Hence, we have no hesitation to say that it is the united struggle of the entire Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL that removed the sword that was hanging on the heads of the employees on the pension issue.

                         At the time when DoT employees got absorbed in BSNL, the Central Cabinet assured that the employees absorbed in BSNL would be paid pension and family pension. The Cabinet also assured that it is the liability of the government to pay pension. However, subsequently the government went back from this commitment and issued a letter on 15.06.2006, saying that government cannot bear the entire expenditure for payment of pension / family pension to the employees absorbed in BSNL. Further, the government said the liability of the government to pay pension to the BSNL absorbees is limited to 60% of the amount received by government, from BSNL and MTNL towards payment of dividend, licence fee, etc. Thus, the government absolved itself from the responsibility of paying pension to the DoT employees who got absorbed in BSNL. This put the future payment of BSNL employees in jeopardy. The Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations was continuously taking up this issue and conducted many struggles. BSNLEU stood in the forefront of all these struggles. Finally, the two day strike, held on 21st & 22nd April, 2015, as per the call of the Forum clinched the issue. This struggle forced the government to hold talks with the Forum on 01.05.2015. In this talks, the Secretary, DoT, categorically gave the commitment for the first time that DoT will move a Cabinet Note for the removal of 60% ceiling on government’s liability to pay pension, as well as to give the 78.2% IDA merger benefit to the pensioners. Accordingly, DoT moved the Cabinet Note. Finally Central Cabinet took decision on 05.07.2016, accepting the full responsibility to pay pension to the absorbed BSNL employees. Based on this Cabinet decision, DoT issued order on 20.07.2016, rescinding the earlier government order dated 15.06.2006. Order

  • 23-07-2016: Pamphlet in Telugu on achieving 78.2% DA Merger to the retired employees

  • 18-07-2016: Orders issued by DoT today on allowing the benefit of 78.2% DA merger for the BSNL pensioners retired between 1.10.2000 to 10.6.2013. Arrears will be paid from 10.6.2013. It is a great achievement of the United struggle organised by the Forum of BSNL Unions of non-executives and executives in which BSNL Employees Union has played a key role as it's Convener and also the contribution of AIBDPA (All India BSNL/DoT Pensioners Association) is significant in this achievement. Copy of the order attached herewith

  • 01-07-2016: Pamphlet in Telugu by the Circle Union on the pending staff issues and organisation programs

  • 01-07-2016: Total telephone connections in the country decreased by 0.2 million in May 2016. But, BSNL increased its connections by 0.1%. During May 2016, the total telephone connections & total wireless telephone connections in the country have decreased by 0.2 million & 0.43 million respectively, taking the total telephone connections in the country to 1.1 billion (As on 31st May, 2016). Some operators have been showing the negative growth i.e. Reliance (1.2 Mn.), Tata (0.2 Mn.) & Videocon (5.2 Mn.) The total telephone connections as on 31.05.2016 are 1.1 billion, out of which 103 million are provided by BSNL and it is at 04th position as an operator with Market share of 9.73%. BSNL'ssss market share has increased by 0.1% during the month of May 2016 and increased by 0.14% during 2016-17 (upto 31.05.2016).

  • 22-06-2016: Recruitment for the posts of Junior Engineer (JE), (ESRTWHILE TTA), in BSNL from external candidates
  • 16-06-2016:Corporate Office circulated revision of TTA (now Junior Engineer) induction training structure and syllabus
  • 10-06-2016: 3rd PRC formed. The government has formed the 3rd Pay Revision Committee (PRC) for the revision of pay scales, perquisites, etc., of the Board Level and Below Board level officers and Non-Unionised supervisors. Justice Satish Chandra (Retd.) is the Chairman. The PRC will submit it's report within 6 months and the wage revision will be implemented from 01.01.2017.

             What relevance the 3rd PRC is having on the Non-Executives?

Now, the government has formed the 3rd Pay Revision Committee (PRC) for the officers of the Public Sector undertakings. The recommendations of this 3rd PRC will be applicable only to the officers, non-unionized supervisors and will not be directly applicable to the Non-Executives of any Public Sector. As regards the Non-Executives, the wage revision will be bargained with the Management, by their recognised unions, and finally wage revision agreement will be signed. However, the quantum of fitment, rate of increment, etc., are recommended by the 3rd PRC, will have certainly have a bearing on the wage settlement of the Non-Executives. BSNLEU has already demanded that the Management should start the Wage Revision talks. However, the Management has replied that Wage Revision talks would start, only when clearance is given by the Administrative Ministry, ie., the DoT. Now, that the government has already declared the formation of the 3rd PRC, we will demand that the DoT should give necessary clearance to BSNL, for starting negotiations for the Wage Revision
