Shri P.K.Sinha,
Member (F), DoT,

Sub: Payment of provisional/adhoc pension to VRS optees requested Reg

Government announced revival package for BSNL/MTNL. As a part of the package VRS-2019 was announced and more than 90,000 employees opted and retired as on 31/1/2020.
Because of the volume, the offices of PCCAs/CCAs will not be in a position to sanction and authorize the due pension before the end of this month. The VRS optees did not get their due salary for December 2019 and January 2020 and they only expect the pension by this month-end. As per the existing orders, Jt.CCA can sanction pension.
Though Rule 64 is applicable only to superannuation retirees, as a special case we request you, sir, to issue necessary instructions to PCCAs/CCAs to grant provisional/adhoc pension (50% of LPD) under Rule 64 of CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 (since they are not retiring in accordance with Rule 48) as an interim measure to mitigate the sufferings of the VRS optees, now pensioners.
We shall feel highly obliged if the action taken in this regard is intimated to us.
Thanking you
Yours faithfully,
 (P.Gangadhara Rao)
 General Secretary.
 Permission is granted to authorize provisional pension for all VRS retirees.

Came up today 11.02.2020 before CAT Madras Bench. Our council as well as DOT council appeared and argued the case. The Hon'ble Tribunal requires some clarity over application of CAT Ernakulam Judgment over its applicability to our case to grant relief as prayed for by the applicants in the OA. Our council immediately submitted copy Earnakulam CAT orders to the Tribunal. The Hon'ble Tribunal also sought for applicability of Rule 70 of CCS Pension Rules, which dealt with Revision of Pension after authorization. Hearing both side, our case stand adjourned to 20.02.2020. Let us hope for  favorable orders. On behalf of AIBSNLPWA Chennai Telephones Circle Shri. V. N. Sampath kumar attended and witnessed the CAT proceedings.
