Update on the pursuance of Team AIGETOA with Chairman and Members of the parliamentary committee on Public Sector Undertakings (COPU):

Team AIGETOA has been regularly pursuing with the members of the parliamentary committee on public undertaking (CoPU) including the chairman with regard to the long pending HR issues of Pay Promotions and Pensions and have submitted our inputs to Chairman COPU. We have highlighted the precarious conditions of BSNL Executives with respect to Pay, Perks and Allowances. We have informed that the BSNL Recruits despite having Professional and Technical Qualifications have been extended only one promotion in their entire career. We have also informed that the recommendation of 2nd PRC with respect to the Pay Scale and 30 Percent SAB is still pending to be implemented and even the Gazette Notification of the Government of India with respect to creating the separate pension scheme for BSNL Recruits was also highlighted. We had also highlighted that post implementation of 2nd PRC, many BSNL Recruits have been made subject to pay loss in place of increase in salary. We also informed them that despite mandatory provision, Post Retirement Medical Benefit fund is yet to be implemented in BSNL. We also have highlighted that executives up to AGM level are being forced to work at TA/DA/Allowances at 2002 rates. We had also requested for their support on implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL.

Our consistent efforts and regular pursuance with the members of COPU has finally succeeded and we wish to inform one and all that COPU has taken cognizance of our inputs, media reports and documents submitted by us and are taking the issues formally with BSNL Management and seeking detailed report in this regard. They have assured for their intervention in the settlement of these long pending genuine HR issues pertaining to BSNL Executives.

Friends, Team AIGETOA is trying from all corners and is leaving no stone unturned to achieve the objective of settlement of the long pending HR issues.
