this issue would be placed for the approval of the Digital
Commission meeting, to be held on 05/02/2019, and that
thereafter it would go for the approval of the Cabinet, said the
DoT side. The AUAB stated that 5% fitment is very low and that
they could not accept it. Thereafter, the AST suggested that the
AUAB representatives could discuss the issue with the CMD BSNL
and could come back to him within a day or two.
Regarding 4G spectrum allocation to BSNL, AST mentioned that the
queries made by DOE & Niti Aayog have been replied by BSNL and
on that basis the matter will be discussed in the Digital
Commission Meeting which is scheduled to be held on 5th Feb.,

Meeting between CMD BSNL and the AUAB on
3rd Pay Revision issue.:
In the meeting held on 10.01.2019, the
Additional Secretary, Telecom, directed the AUAB to hold a
discussion with the BSNL Management on the 3rd Pay Revision
issue, and to come back to him for a meeting in the following
week. Accordingly, a meeting took place between the
AUAB and the CMD BSNL today. The Director (HR) was
also present in the meeting.
Discussion took place on the issue of
3rd Pay Revision. The AUAB representatives categorically
demanded that 3rd Pay Revision should be settled with 15%
fitment. The CMD BSNL also stated that the BSNL Management
sticks on to its earlier position that 3rd Pay Revision should
be settled with 15% fitment. The AUAB pointed out that the
notification for Parliament election would be issued any time in
the month of March, and that the available time for the
settlement of 3rd Pay Revision was very less.
The representatives also pointed out that

A Report: Meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction
(Institutional Mechanism) and meeting between the AUAB and
the Addl.Secretary(T), DoT:
Pay Revision : Detailed
discussion took place. The Addl. Secretary(T) told that the DoT
is ready to settle the 3rd Pay Revision. But, he categorically
told that it will be very difficult for the DoT to get the
approval of the Cabinet for 15% fitment, since BSNL�s financial
position does not allow payment of such high salary. He
requested the AUAB and the BSNL Management to discuss and take
viable decision and bring to DoT immediately so that this can be
taken in next Digital Commission scheduled to be held in the
first week of Feb., 2019.
4G spectrum to BSNL: As
regards the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, the Addl.
Secretary(T) confidently told that the DoT would do it�s best to
get the Cabinet approval for the allotment of 4G spectrum to
BSNL. He expressed hope that the Digital Commission meeting to
be held in the 1st week of February would give the necessary
clearance, after which it would go for the Cabinet approval.
Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay: As
regards the issue of Payment of Pension Contribution on actual
basic pay, the Addl. Secretary(T) told that the Department of
Expenditure (DoE) has sought certain details and that the DoT
has already written to the BSNL in this regard. The Director
(HR) replied that within 1 or 2 days, BSNL would send a reply to
the DoT. The Addl. Secretary(T) assured that thereafter prompt
action would be taken to get the approval of the DoE.
Pension Revision: On
this issue, the AUAB representatives expressed their
dissatisfaction and demanded that prompt action should be taken
by the DoT. Thereafter, detailed discussion took place with
regards to the fitment, etc. Finally, the Addl. Secretary(T)
requested Director(HR) to provide with copies of relevant
documents like Govt. orders related to the earlier pension
revision documents to the employees, etc.
items of 2nd PRC :At
the end of the meeting, the Addl. Secretary(T), DoT suggested
that the AUAB representatives could again meet him next week. In
addition to that left out items of 2nd PRC, Director(HR) BSNL
