Q. Denial of Pension Revision to Govt pensioners retired from BSNL

We were recruited by DOT , GOI and subsequently on formation of BSNL absorbed there from 2000. The written commitment was that after retirement Govt scheme of pension will be available to us on our combined services in DOT and BSNL. Accordingly after our retirement we are getting our pension as per CCS Pension Rules 1972. Our pension was last revised on 2017 following the pay revision of BSNL employees. But now after 10 years when our pension revision is due from 2017, govt is denying it on the ground that pay revision of BSNL employees this time is not permissible as per affordibility clause of 3rd PRC. As there is no pay revision to BSNL employees there will be no pension revision for pensioners retired from BSNL. We are getting pension from Govt fund and in no way related to profit and loss of BSNL, how our pension revision can be denied. We are now 2 lakhs in number and very soon total such pensioners will be 4 lakhs. Can we file the case in supreme court directly.

A. Sir, do have a talk with the authorities of BSNL by way of letters and seek the reply. Also, filing a case in supreme court will not be a proper solution to this.
You can also take help from the local unions.
As we know that there was a nation wide protest for the same it is in the eyes of plenty and also BSNL knows about it very well. Disputes like this should be solved amicably in not in haste.

What BSNL will do. Our pension is paid by GoI from CFI. BSNL has no role in our pension or pension revision. I am sorry you have not correctly followed our case.


A. Dear Sir,
Best option for you would be to get in touch with BSNL as they are probably doing something in this regard as they had a nation wide strike.This is a long pending issue and will take time.Actually this between the UNION and BSNL Authorities. This can be sorted out at that level.
