In line with the suggestions of AIGETOA in the online meeting which was represented by Shri Ansal Mohmmad who is one of the pioneers in the EPF case along with Shri Saheer and other AIGETOA Kerala members and subsequently conveyed by our letter dated 17th April 2023, CA section of BSNL CO has issued guidelines to Circles for issuance of Joint Undertaking and a certificate in lieu of PARA 26(6) OF EPF Scheme WHICH HAS TO BE USED BY the employees of BSNL while opting higher pension in EPFO website. BSNL is stating that deductions have been made and deposited on full Basic and DA to EPFO. This will ensure that willing persons can fill up the higher pension option at EPFO Portal.
Earlier AIGETOA CHQ Team and BSNL Officials also visited EPFO and held discussions on the methodology to be adopted. Thereafter this letter has been issued by BSNL CO to circles.
This has come out in persuasion to KERALA HIGH COURT JUDGEMENT DATED 12th April 2023 wherein AIGETOA is a petitioner and is result of continuous persuasion by Team AIGETOA with management and concerned section.
We are thankful to BSNL Management and PGM CA for taking necessary action in timely manner in the interest of BSNL executives.
