 𝗣𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗥𝗲𝘃𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻: 

Dear comrades,

President, Vice President Com Gangadhara Rao and self reached Delhi on 5/2/24.

Com N K Gandigwad, veteran leader of Hubbali along with his friend also reached Delhi on the same day.

We met Shri Pralhad Joshi ji on 6th night at his residence and requested him to arrange a meeting with Hon MoC.

He told that he will talk to him and meeting will be arranged on 7th or 8th and told his PA to coordinate with MoC PA and us.

Hon MoC was terribly busy and couldn't get appointment even on 9th.

But today (9th) we could meet Telecom secretary (even though he is on leave today he came to office in the evening to sign some files and by the efforts of our other source we could meet him).

We also met Member F , Member S and Director (Estt.)

After meeting all these officers our assessment is

1) DoT mentally prepared to implement the judgement of PB, CAT without preferring an appeal

2) Informal consultations were held with DoP&PW and DoE.

3) The file is not yet sent to DoE and it may be sent in the coming week

4) All the officers are tight-lipped about the actual proposal but we could understand that they have two/three options for implementing the CAT judgement.

5) It's clear that DoT is interested to find a permanent solution and at par with CG pensioners as we demanded.

6) It's clear that after getting the nod from nodal departments cabinet note will be prepared and the whole process will take atleast 6 months because a policy decision has to be taken to delink pension revision from pay revision and related issues.

7) We called the leaders of applicant associations today evening to brief them but only Com Bagchi and Jain from AIRBSNLEWA came and others could not come due to personal reasons.

8) We told them that we are not interested to file any contempt petition because that would provide an opportunity for DoT to file an appeal against the judgement which may drag on for nearly 4 years. We also appealed to other applicant associations not to go for contempt petition.

Despite severe cold for which we are not accustomed to and many health issues we stayed in Delhi for 5 days.

Hope all of you would appreciate our sincere efforts for getting a permanent solution.

தலை நகரில் மத்திய அமைச்சருடன் நமது தானைத்தலைவர்கள்..6-2-24.

Dear Comrades, To expedite the process of our Pension Revision, our AIBSNL CHQ leaders Com. D.Gopalakrishnan, Com.V. Varaprasad, Com. Gangadhar Rao and Dy.GS, Com.Anup Kaul are camping in Delhi. If the Pension Revision is accomplished before Elections it would be easy. Revision file should first get approval of Finance Wing. As the Honourable Minister is favourable the Department has not chosen to appeal the case to High Court of Delhi.  Our leaders are appealing to Minister continuously through various channels. Let’s hope our case of Pension Revision is solved as soon as possible. Andhra M.P. Honourable Sri GVL Narasimha Rao also trying to resolve the issue on our behalf.  From M.Rajasekhara Reddy, AGS, AIBSNLPWA. (English translation of the above Telugu message from AGS)

 Let's hope that our leaders at Delhi will come with good results. K.Muthiyalu
