COMMITTEE OF BSNL/MTNL PENSIONERS’ ASSOCIATIONS Met DOP&PW Officials  on the issue of  Pension  Revision of  BSNL & MTNL Pensioners .
Com. M K Bagchi, Com. Anupam Kaul and Com. S S Nanda,
members of the Committee of BSNL/MTNL Pensioners” Associations ( CBMPA ) today (15/01/2019) met top officers in Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare and discussed about the issue of pension revision.
They were informed that DoT did not clarify the issues sought for earlier by DoP & PW.  DoT should have sent a clear proposal for pension revision if pension revision is delinked from pay revision.  But they have not sent that kind of  proposal. 
So once again we have asked the DoT to send a concrete proposal.
Our representatives gained the impression that DoP&PW officers are very much aware of the issue involved. Our
representatives clarified certain doubts also. It is understood that if DoP&PW gets a proper proposal with due justification from DoT it may be favourably considered by them and the views of DoE also should be sought.
CBMPA will seriously pursue the matter.
.. P Gangadhara Rao,
Convener, CBMPA

DPE order 
raising the IDA rate to 
with effect from 
is given below.

 A brief explanation

Fifth CPC recommended fitment benefit of 20%. After negotiation with Union leaders the Govt raised it to 40%.   But, the 6th CPC did not suggest any such fitment formula.  Instead, the 6th CPC introduced Grade Pay.  For the pay scale of 6500-10500 the Grade Pay originally suggested in 2008 was Rs 4200. In November 2009 it was raised to Rs 4600.   Again in 2013 and 2016 also when Concordance Tables were circulated the Grade Pay for the above Scale was erroneously shown as Rs. 4200.  Some people approached the Court.  CAT Bangalore, on 18th June 2018, ordered that Rs 4600 should be taken into account as Gr. Pay or the said pay scale.

Now, the order is issued honouring that judgement.  But the order talks about minimum pension only.   What about revising the pension of all those who were in the scale of 6500-10500, drawing more than the minimum?   The order gives scope for further doubts, clarifications and more cases.   Let us wait and see how the pension is going to be revised in such cases.

Note: The above is applicable only to DoT Pensioners who were getting Grade Pay.  There was no grade pay in BSNL.
