Aug 16:News from CHQ :
with Secretary, DoT on 19.08.2016:
On E2, E3 pay scales, DoT Finance informed Secretary
that higher pay scales cannot be considered due to financial implications.
Instead Finance suggested that the cadres can be placed in E1 scale and their
pay can be compensated (by addl increments). However we took very strong
exception to this and explained in detail to Secretary how JTO cadre has been
recognised and upgraded the pay scales in 1986 by a Union Cabinet decision,
again in 1996 by the V CPC recommendations. The cadre also upgraded from Group
C to Group B Gazetted by the Govt as per the recommendations of V CPC. By
demotion of the cadre to E1 scales, it will demoralize the entire cadre and
cannot be accepted by the Assn under any circumstances. Further we informed
Secretary that even after extending E2 scale, the Basic pay will be less by
Rs.2220 (Rs.22820-Rs.Rs.20600), comparing to the JTOs joined prior to
01.01.2007. The E2 pay scale benefit will be extended to the fresh recruits
after 01.01.2007 and not for others. All other Executives will not get any
benefit at all. These are the entry cadre pay scales where direct recruitment
taking place from market. Demotion of the cadres will affect the rect and
talents will not join BSNL. Finally Secretary directed concerned officers to re
examine the case in light of the fresh inputs provided by us.
it is very clear that DoT is not in a mood to consider even E2, E3 pay scales.
Make extensive preparations for a prolonged agitational programs on pay scales.
of pension for the BSNL pensioners by referring the mater to 3rd
PRC: Assn explained
the issue. Pension revision is done through cabinet decisions which is
cumbersome process. Pension revision is always getting delayed. So the matter
may be referred to 3rd PRC and it should become part of terms of
reference of 3rd PRC. Already DoT written to DPE in this regard, but
it did not included in the terms of reference as it reached DPE late. Secretary
informed that he had already spoken to the Secretary, DPE in this regard but
the response is not positive. However on our repeated plea, he assured that he
will take the matter with DPE to get it included in the terms of reference of 3rd
