Respected Madam,

Sub: Nation-wide day-long fast on 22/11/2018 by the pensioners intimation – reg:
We have been demanding pension revision, for those who retired from BSNL/MTNL, covered under CCS (Pension) Rules 1972.  The demand is simple viz.  Existing pension plus Dearness Relief as on 1/1/2017 plus 32% weightage (of basic pension) as recommended by 7th CPC and implemented to 62 lakh C.G. pensioners.   C.G. pensioners got the benefit nearly 2 years back.  We have written more than dozen letters on the subject.  We met Hon. MoC on 12/9/2017, present Secretary (T) twice during November 17 and March 18 and explained the demand in person.  As per the decision of our Central Working Committee, we conducted nationwide ‘demonstration’ on 20/6/18 & ‘dharna’ on 18/7/18, passed resolutions and sent to Hon. Prime Minister, Hon. MoC & Secretary (T).  

Despite all these efforts, DoT has not even prepared the Cabinet Note for circulation among the nodal departments.  Pensioners have become restive.  So, our AIC, held at Puri in September 18, decided to organize a nation-wide fast on 22/11/18.  Pensioners at the age of 80+, 70+ are forced to sit on hunger fast because of the inordinate delay.  The fast will be held in front of Corporate office/CGM/PGM/GM, BSNL & CCA offices throughout the country.  We earnestly request you, madam, to take necessary action for getting the approval of the cabinet for pension revision without further loss of time.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully,
    (P.Gangadhara Rao)
       General Secretary.
