First implemented in 2005, PUA allows BSNL executives to receive two percent of one-month basic pay per month to purchase educational materials on a self-certification basis. Employees must submit their annual self-certification via the ERP-ESS portal between 21st March 2024 and 31st March 2024.

Failure to submit the mandatory certificate results in non-payment of PUA for the subsequent year.
