Dear Comrades,
As communicated earlier by us, DoT is yet to sent it's proposals to DoE, after getting the opinion of DoP& PW regarding implementation of Judgment of Hon.PB CAT ND.
It is understood that DoT is considering various other options, besides implementation of Judgment of Hon.PB CAT ND, for Pension Revision.In what manner the proposal is eventually finalized remains to be seen and this will be crystallized after getting opinion of DoE. We continue to monitor the progress of the issue very closely. After getting the opinion of DoE, DoT will share the same with the Pensioners Associations.
In the meantime Joint Forum of BSNL/ MTNL Pensioners Associations is seeking meeting with Secy(Telecom.) on this issue.
Basically resolution of the issue is taking time since DoT is of the opinion that PB CAT ND Judgment cannot be implemented in letter and spirit for our Pension Revision. It appears that DoT holds the opinion that fitment factor of 7th CPC cannot be extended on IDA scales. That is why it is mulling over other options for our Pension Revision.
