Flash News : BSNL Board approves Benevolent Fund for the deaths due to Covid-19 in the current Pandemic Era. Employees to voluntarily Contribute one day Salary and BSNL will give matching Contribution. From the Corpus Generated, an amount of Rs 10 Lakhs shall be given to the near dependents. This was unanimously agreed by all unions and associations. This is the least we can do to help the families whose bread winners met untimely death. Though we want the scope of the scheme to be widened to all type of deaths, it is understood that currently the Scheme is covering Covid-19 deaths only. Association will raise this issue in forthcoming agenda meet to cover all type of deaths and incorporation of other suggestions given by this association.
We are yet to see the details of the scheme. We will keep all updated on the same.
