Implementation of Revised Pay Scales with 15% Fitment Benefit for BSNL Executives

ALL INDIA BHARAT SANCHAR NIGAM LIMITED OFFICERS’ ASSOCIATION
No.AIBSNLOA/CHQ/2017/42
Dated: 15th November 2017
To
Shri Manoj Sinha,
Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications,
Government of India
New Delhi

Subject: Implementation of revised pay scales with 15% fitment benefit for BSNL executives – reg.

Hon’ble Sir,
At the outset, we are thankful for your reported inclination towards implementing revised pay scales with 25% fitment benefit in respect of BSNL executives, even though BSNL does not fully meet the affordability condition stipulated by the 3rd PRC but BSNL is already on revival path and reporting operational profit for last few years. In this regard, we would like to draw your kind attention to the fact that MTNL employees were allowed pay revision as recommended by 2nd PRC w.e.f. 1.1.2007 with the highest 30% fitment benefit although the affordability clause existed then and MTNL was incurring loss for consecutive years.

2. We now learn that BSNL Board has approved a proposal for pay revision and has submitted to the administrative department i.e., the Department of Telecommunication.

3. It is needless to say that BSNL was formed when Hon’ble Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji, was the Prime Minister of India, with a Mission to provide world class, State-of-art technology based telecom services on demand at affordable prices and to provide world class telecom infrastructure to develop country’s economy. At the time of Corporatisation, while approving HRD and financial issues arising out of the corporatisation, the Union Cabinet had assured that “Government will consider and provide a package of measures so that the viability of BSNL is not impaired because of implementation of any socially desirable uneconomic activity, such as rural telephony, undetaken by BSNL at the behest of Government”.

4. Since then, BSNL has been discharging the social obligations of the Government of India by providing services in remote and rural areas inspite of incurring loss because of these services and its presence in the Telecom industry as a fully Government owned PSU, aiming at providing world class services at affordable tariff, has been accepted by every stake holder as a ‘moderating factor’ in controlling the tariff in favour of the customers.

5. When all private networks failed to provide dependable service during natural calamities, whether it was Hudhud cyclone in Andhra Pradesh, Vardha cyclone in Tamilnadu, Floods in Tamilnadu and Uttarakhand, Earthquake in Jammu & Kashmir, BSNL was the only operator which proved its robustness.

6.1 In the prestigious Digital India programme of Hon’ble Prime Minister of India too, BSNL is contributing in two three areas, like National Optic Fibre Network (NOFN), providing Wi-fi hotspots at commercial places, Mobile Wallet service under the Prime Minister Jan Dhan Yojana and delivering m-governance services like digital mandi, kisan seva, Digital high quality educational content among others. BSNL’s contribution towards BharatNet is also worth mentioning.

6.2 BSNL’s role in ensuring GST compliance also cannot be under estimated. BSNL introduced GSP/ASP service on PAN India basis to assist Small and Medium Enterprises as well as large business houses in transitioning to GST by launching an application software which will record invoices on a PC / hand held device or a smart phone along with all GST compliances like preparation of GST Returns, Assistance in generation of GST challans for payment, filing of GST Returns, sending back mismatch invoices etc. BSNL also played an effective role during demonetisation in last November by providing seamless network connectivity among banks and financial institutions.

7. Recently BSNL has signed (MoU) with Fiber Home to jointly start manufacturing telecom equipment and optical fiber cable in BSNL factories, underscoring another initiative by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India – ‘Make in India’.

8. BSNL revenue over the past three years is increasing. The year 2013-14 saw an increase in revenue of 3.2%. The year 2014-15 saw an increase of 2.32%. In the year 2015-16, the increase in income is 14.92% whereas in the same year the expenses decreased marginally by 1.47%. The loss is declining and BSNL is likely to make profit in 2018.

9. While these are sufficient ground justifying revision of pay scales of BSNL employees with 15% fitment benefit, we would like to draw your kind attention towards another major fact which cannot be ignored or overlooked.

10. All the senior officers of Department of Telecommunication who are on ‘deployment’ in BSNL, holding major managerial positions in BSNL have already got their pay fixed in revised scales as per the recommendations of VII Central Pay Commission with 14.2% fitment benefit w.e.f. 1.1.2016. All of them draw their higher pay and perks from BSNL and BSNL’s affordability to pay was not at all an issue for them. If BSNL employees are denied the revised pay with 15% fitment benefit, it will result in an unprecedented discrimination against its own employees vis-à-vis those who are under ‘deployment’. The fall out of such a situation will be unparalleled in the history of indian Public Sector.

11. It will be therefore unfair if BSNL executives are denied their due pay revision in the name of non-affordability, since such a proposition will have a negative impact on their morale which in turn will affect the revival plans of BSNL.

12. We therefore earnestly request you to kindly get the issue examined thoroughly and to ensure that pay revision as per 3rd PRC recommendations are implemented in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit in view of its strategic national importance.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely,
(Rakesh Sethi)
General Secretary

Dated 17th November, 2017

To
The Chief of the Army Staff
The Chief of the Naval Staff
The Chief or the Air Staff

Subject: Eligibility of widowed/divorced daughter for grant of Family Pension clarification.

The undersigned is directed to state that the provision for grant of family pension to a widowed/divorced daughter beyond the age of 25 years has been made vide GoI, Ministry of personnel, P.C. & Pensions, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare 0M No.1/19/03-(E) dated 2S.08.2004 Circulated vide GoI MOD letter No.878/A/D(Pen/Sers)/04 dated 21.09.2004 applying the same provision to the Armed Force Personnel.

2. It was clarified vide Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, P.G- & Pensions, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare OM No.1/13/09-P&PW (E) dated 11.09.2013 circulated vide MOD ID No.1(9)/2013/D(Pen/Pol) dated 16.09.2015, the family pension is payable to the children as they are considered to be dependent on the Government servant/pensioner or his/her spouse. A child who is not earning equal to or more than the sum of minimum family pension and dearness relief thereon is considered to be dependent on his/her parents. Therefore, only those children who are dependent and meet other conditions of eligibility for family pension at the time of death of the Government servant or his/her spouse, whichever is later, are eligible for family pension. If two or more children are eligible for family pension at that time, family pension will be payable to each child on his/her turn provided he/she is still eligible for family pension when the turn come. Accordingly, divorced daughters who fulfil other conditions are eligible for family pension if a decree of divorce had been issued by the competent court during the life time of at least one of the parents.

3. Grievances were being received from various quarters that the divorce proceedings are a long drawn procedure which take many years before attaining finality. There are many cases in which the divorce proceedings of a daughter of Government employee/pensioner had been instituted in the competent court during the life of one or both Government employee/pensioner & spouse, but none of them was alive by the time the decree of divorce was granted by the competent authority.

4. The matter has been examined in this department and it has been decided that the clarification “grant family pension to a divorced daughter in such cases where the divorce proceedings had been filed tn a competent court during the life time of the employee/pensioner or his/her spouse but divorce took place after their death-provided the claimant fulfils all other conditions for grant of family pension. In such cases, the family pension will commence from the date of divorce” given by Government of India. Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions’, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare vide 0M No.1/13/09- P&PW (E) dated 19.07.2017 would also apply mutatis mutandis to divorced daughters of Armed Force personnel.

5. This issues with the concurrence ofthe Finance Division of this Ministry vide their ID No.10(09)/2015/Fin/Pen dated 17.10.2017.

6. Hindi version will follow.
