A real fact about 30% Superannuation Benefit.

'..Superannuation.? What the heck it is.. I am more concerned about what do I get now.. '
Most of us had been made to think that way by BSNL. BSNL only pays the 18% of Basic + DA as superannuation benefits, instead of DPEs proposed 30%. In the final analysis, the 12% that BSNL doesn't pay makes a huge difference.


                                                                      What we have already Lost


A calculation of the benefits we have lost till 31.12.2013 because of BSNL refusing to give us the 30% Superannuation Benefits, which had been made mandatory for CPSUs according to the Department of Public Enterprises, 2nd Pay Revision Commission.

 

 Batch

Loss up to
DEC/2013
(Lakhs)

 

Calculation of Avg Loss in
Retirement (interest rate 8.5%)
(due to loss only up to DEC/2013)

 

Avg Loss In Retirement
(due to loss only up to
DEC/2013) in Lakhs

 
 2009 1.5  1.5(1+0.085)33   22
 2007 1.8 1.8(1+0.085)32   24.5
 2005 4.5 4.5(1+0.085)30  52
2002 6.5 6.5(1+0.085)26 54
2001 7 7(1+0.085)26 58

 

      You should know that according to Govt rules any Company in India should ensure Basic, DA and Superannuation benefits to all employees before giving additional perks like TA etc. But in BSNL a section of the Employees (DoT Absorbees) have been accorded full benefits (Basic, DA, TA, Pension
..etc) while another section's (Direct Recruits) benefits are cut (only 18% superannuation benefits instead of 30%), citing financial burden to BSNL. So we Direct Recruits are supposed to be content with the Rs.3250/- EPF Pension that would be given to us after 30 years of service.

 

     This means that the Cost to Company for a Direct Recruit in the present condition is much lower than that of his DoT Absorbee counterpart. So we are a kind of second class workers in BSNL, working for much lower wages for the same job as compared to our DoT Absorbee counterparts, because of BSNL not having implemented the DPE 2nd PRC in full. The money we have already lost till NOW would have easily yielded us monthly interest amount of Rs.6500/- by the time of retirement (twice the pension amount we are going to receive after 30 years of service).

 

     Friends its time to take tough decisions. The time to act is NOW. Nothing can be done about what we have already lost. But if we don't act now then we have no one but ourselves to blame for our fate.

Indefinite Hunger Fast Update

In response to agitation notice by AIGETOA a meeting was held on 31st Jan-2014 under the chairmanship of CMD BSNL wherein management desired some more time of 7 to 15 days to take final call on the issues.

It is also asked by CMD BSNL to submit the points where wrong implementation of 2nd PRC has taken place and other injustice meted out to the direct recruits. He has assured to take corrective action within 7 to 15 days. In response to the outcome of the said meeting and appeal from BSNL management, core committee of AIGETOA CHQ has decided to honor the word of CMD BSNL but at the same time we cannot stop our protest mere on assurance as BSNL management has already breached such commitments and assurances several times in the past. We will carry our protest as follows:

 1. CHQ members and some other volunteers will sit on indefinite day long hunger fast at BSNL Corporate office from 3rd Feb-2014 as symbolic protest to keep reminding management about its commitment. All CHQ office bearers and volunteers are requested to reach BSNL CO.

 

2. While sitting on protest at BSNL CO we shall try to keep good image of BSNL and even do all the activities in the interest of BSNL like marketing of BSNL products, displaying BSNL banners etc. If yet management does not allow us to observe such positive protest at BSNL CO and forcing us to push out from BSNL premises, we will sit on indefinite hunger fast from the same day either at CMD residence or at MOC.

 

3. All other members shall perform their duties and give extra hours to the company as our Board of Directors have committed to work hard for resolution of our issues in time bound manner but at the same time members shall wear the badges of protest and meet to SSA and circle heads on daily basis to ensure that their protest is being appraised to CMD BSNL.

 

4. All members shall keep close watch on developments which will be informed through association website and keep themselves ready to participate in further call of AIGETOA CHQ which will be taken watching the development in resolution of the issues.

 

5. Members are requested to Please do not believe in any rumors, keep faith on leadership, and just follow the instructions uploaded on website. We are not left with any option but to fight for right. We are moving ahead with best plan and backup with full commitment to achieve our every right, we are ready to take any risk to secure our rights.

UPDATE ON DoPT CASE FOR GETTING 1:1

Some association has given a misleading letter to Director (HR). some extracts are pointed out below.

"It is pertinent to mention here that JTOs recruited for the year 1995 are still waiting for their promotion to TES Gr B even after 17 years."

 

The actual fact is promotee JTO who have joined in JTO cadre from 1998 to 2007 has been given retrospective year of recruitment purposefully by some vested interest groups, which is totally wrong as per DOPT guidelines and natural justice.

The Chennai case was different and not at all connected with the present DOPT before Hon.CAT EKM in its grounds. DR JTOs please understand the gravity of the case and the situation. Don't fall in any blind rumours
