WARNING ALARM  !!!!
BSNLELU inbits website has told that there is no chance of getting wage revision under third PRC directions. 
We understood the danger much earlier.

Still some friends have illusion about PRC.

PRC will not change its report and suggest any pension revision. Govt will not ask PRC to reopen the matter due to cascading repercussions.

We can not depend upon wage revision in BSNL.

With annulment of 60:40  condition we are 100% central pensioners. 
Our pension should be revised without linking with profit or loss of BSNL.
It should be by extension of the Finance ministry orders of 4.8.2016 and 12.5.2017

Give notional pay revision of last pay drawn and refix the pension.

No illusion.
No confusion.
We are PSU retirees but
central govt pensioners.

We demand CPC benifits now and all the time to come also.

Members are frequently asking clarification for BSNLMRS Medical Allowance calculations.
Medical allowance without voucher calculated for post 2007 pensioners is as under :

1. calculate 12.5 days of Last basic pay drawn at the time of your retirement.  
2. find out the IDA percentage for that basic pay at the time of your retirement.
3. add that IDA percentage of amount with your 12.5 days of basic pay calculated above. 
4. that is your medical allowance amount without voucher for post 2007 pensioners.

EXAMPLE
   1.  last pay drawn on 31-5-2007   :  Rs.30000/-  
   2. 12.5 days of basic pay for that:  Rs.12500/-
   3.  IDA as on 31-5-2007 = 0.8%    :  Rs.    100/-   
   4.  Total amount alowance           :  Rs.12600/-  per year

Medical allowance without voucher calculated for pre 2007 pensioners is as under :

EXAMPLE:
   1.  last pay drawn on 31-12-2006:  Rs. 20000/-
   2.  15 days of basic pay for that  : Rs. 10000/-
   3.  IDA as on 31-12-2006=68.8%  : Rs.   6880/-
   4.  Total amount of allowance     :   Rs.16880/-  per year

Our STR DIVISION has sent  Rs.12,000/- to TAMILNADU CIRCLE ASSN today towards 78.2% PENSION REVISION ARREARS DONATION as our first instalment.

Friday, 12 May 2017



Dear Comrades, Greetings to all.

Today our Circle Secretary Com.K.Muthiyalu had gone to State Bank Of India, Valasaravakkam, Chennai  where CPPC section exists. He wanted to meet the General Manager but GM was not available at that time .
So our CS was directed to meet DGM, Customer Care. He had a cordial and nice meeting with Shri.Srivastava, DGM, Customer Care, SBI. 
Our CS explained in detail about the long delay to credit the 78.2% IDA arrears by the SBI Officials. In spite of our repeated reminders and meetings at different levels, the works were moving in snail speed.
The DGM listened our demands very patiently and told that he had been transferred recently from Patiala and he would go thoroughly in to the matter and set right in two or three days.
We told that there was an acute shortage of staff in that section and requested to depute one more staff to that section. He replied in an affirmative manner.
CS handed over long pending  cases about 30 in number which he had received from Thanjavur, Salem etc SSA pensioners  with respective PPO and SB account numbers. DGM  assured our CS  to settle all at the earliest.
We hope that atleast here after the things would move little faster. District Secretaries may collect such cases and send to the Circle secretary with PPO, LPS and SB Account Numbers by post or through Courier.
Will meet soon.
With Fraternal greetings,
K.Muthiyalu,
Tamilnadu Circle secretary,
12-05-2017.
