In a meeting of the members of other Branches in Delhi held on 16.11.2022 in the Committee Room of Delhi State Industrial & Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd, New Delhi, a Circle Branch for AIBSNLREA, Delhi Circle was formed. In the meeting, the members discussed about the problems being faced in availing benefits from BSNLMRS and CGHS. They also raised the pension revision issue. Various suggestions came from them on Organizational issues. Seven new Life Members were also enrolled during the meeting. General Secretary Shri S Basu, who was present in the meeting, in his speech touched upon various organisation and welfare issues. He explained the action taken by Association in respect of all the issues concerning the BSNL retirees in general and the retired BSNL Executives in particular. He had been it clear that claim by few Pensioners’ Association that we are Government pensioners, and our pension should be revised by applying 7th CPC fitment has no logic. DoT’s proposal for pension revision with ‘NIL Fitment” benefit found no favour from DoP&PW. They not only refused to get involved in a committee to be formed as proposed by DoT, but also advised DoT to take up their proposal for pension revision with DoE. DoP&PW also refused to accept the request to change the CCS (Pension) Rules. He also stated that even the Petition filed by one of these Associations in Ernakulam CAT with the same arguments now being advanced, has already been dismissed. Moreover, they did not even file their counter to the DoT’s reply in the CAT. It is regretted the despite all these hard facts, they are much noise is being made only to confuse the pensioners. Later, a Circle Body was formed with S/Shri R K Tiwari as Circle President, Devesh Kumar as Circle Secretary and K Yohannan as Circle Finance Secretary.  View the list of office bearers
