BSNLEU-CHQ-Nd Latest News-inf. by Ashok hindocha (M-9426201999)8

[15.07.2009] HOW FUNNY ! :- FNTO has put in its website a form asking workers to sign and submit it to management with regard to wage revision. In the letter it is stated that “Kindly award pay scales as recommended by second pay review committee.”

Second Pay Review Committee was appointed to recommend wage revision for executives only and it had no connection with the pay revision non-executives and not recommended any pay scales for non-executives. But interestingly FNTO is asking the workers to request the management to award pay scales recommended by the Committee !

Funny Indeed !

[15.07.2009]Due to Mismanagement

BSNL had to pay Rs.1000/- as extra interest - CAG Report

In what highlights mismanagement in government-run companies, BSNL failed to return a government loan of Rs. 7,500 crore when it had a disposable reserve of more than Rs. 18,000 crore. This resulted in the company paying an interest of over Rs. 1,000 crore.

The country's biggest telecom company parked its surplus funds in banks to earn an interest of 6% - 7% when it was already paying interest of 14.5% for the loan.

"BSNL failed to return government loan of Rs. 7,500 crore inspite of having adequate cash reserves of Rs. 18,829 crore as of March 2005 parked in bank deposits with average rate of return of 6.19% to 7.38% per annum against the rate of interest of 14.50% for the loan," a CAG report on BSNL tabled in Parliament on Monday said.

"This imprudent financial management resulted in excess expenditure of Rs. 1,089 crore on interest payment,” it added. [Source: The Times of India, dated 14.07.2009]

[10.07.2009] Utter Confusion ! They don’t know what they demand:- It is observed at FNTO (CHQ) website that they demanded to BSNL Management: “IDA Pay Scales of the non-executives w.e.f. 01.01.2007 in the same line and fixation formula adopted for executives without any periodicity.”

This actually means (apart from periodicity), they don’t want benefit of merger of 50% IDA, which has already been approved by DPE but not yet implemented for BSNL executives. Moreover, they want that non-executives pay scales be constructed in relation to present E-1 minimum pay of Rs.16,400/-, since proposed E-1 A pay scale has not yet been granted.


In their memorandum supposed to be signed by employees, they demanded: “Kindly award pay scales as recommended by Second Pay Review Committee.”

What a joke indeed !

2nd Pay Review Committee was for executives and its recommendations confined to executives only. No pay scale for non-executives recommended by 2nd Pay Review Committee.
