  4. Rule-37A of CCS(Pension)rules 1972 clearly says even BSNL is closed pension to BSNL retirees absorbed from DOT is assured and DOT has also confirmed in writing. Pension guaranteed does not mean pension existing it has meaning of periodical revision as in the case of C G Pensioners and we are also C G Pensioners covered by CCS(Pension) rules, Revision of pay of BSNL employees is nothing to do with revision of pay of BSNL employees, Pension to BSNL retirees is paid from Consolidated Fund of India as to C G Pensioners. DOT is mis-interpreting/mis-leading with the stand even he is aware that revision cannot be denied but still why he is distancing himself from revision stand is matter of regret.

  5. I also demand revision of absorbed BSNL retired person as per 3rd PRC with 15% fitment and delink with working employee.

  6. Pay of BSNL employees is not revised as per 3rd PRC recommendation & BSNL weak financial status, Pension revision is linked to pay revision liking to Nakara judgment, Basically BSNL pensioners, who have served DOT over 25 to 35 years, are DOT personnel on service to BSNL based on which BSNL (a PSU)retirees are being paid pension bringing them under (CCS(Pension) Rules-1972. Pension is thus revisable as per 3rd PRC fitment or as per 7th CPC fitment in consideration to their C G pension status. Pension revision cannot be denied. Denial is an injustice to justice which law cannot permit.

  8. We pensioners of BSNL are the pensioners of central government and it is the liability of centre to treat all equally and on the same pattern, Why second treatment towards BSNL retirees, Originally we are employees of DOT, Became corporation on 1-10-2000 and DA is given due to hike in prices. Is not for we pensioners. Kindly explain. Vivad why and what for, Pay revision also delayed why MOS communication got hostile on 3rd PRC even for pensioners which is injustice, The government is having lack of vision or inexperienced because of religious classification.
    Zat pat.
