Com K. Muthiyalu said that when DOT is converted into BSNL, There was a strike against it by NFTE and FNTO in 2000. Com Om.P. Guptha and Com Vallinayagam signed an agreement after the Govt assured them that BSNL Employees will get Govt. Pension when they retire. Thus the CCS Pension Rules 1972 Rule was amended under 37 A. We are now getting pension from Govt. because of their agreement only. He said that we are very clear on our demands. DOT Officers are initially confused when we raised this demand. When we explained the reasons behind this demand to them they are now understanding our demand. But still they are having some doubts in their mind.
