  NOW NO TENSION FOR PENSION:- The DOT vide letter No.-40-13/2015-Pen(T), dt-20-07-2016 has withdrawn the 60:40 ratio for payment of pension to the absorbed employees. The 60:40 ratio was introduced vide letter No.-1-45/2003-B, dt-15-03-2005. The NFTE has been constantly representing and pursuing the matter for withdrawal of orders issued on 15-06-2006 at the instance of Ministry Finance. Due to this even pension of pre 13-06-2013 retirees was not being revised. The attention of Honble Prime Minister was finally drawn vide union letter No.-TF-11/3, dt-08-01-2016. The ceaseless pursuance by NFTE brought the result and now orders dt 15-06-2006 have been declared redundant. “Pension is no tension” now as Govt will pay the same.

        PLI and alleged controversy:-The NFTE is not at all interested in raising and mentioning the controversy on the issue of PLI. But fact remains that due to sustained persuation of NFTE the management first time agreed to pay the PLI for year 2014-15. Accordingly the meeting was fixed for 30th March, 2016 for the purpose. The official side placed a formula in accordance with which the amount was coming in neither one nor in two digits but beyond this. Despite this no agreement could be arrived at between NFTE and the management side. The BSNL HQR letter No.-BSNL/7-2/SR/2016 dt-06-07-2016 is proof of that. The NFTE’s stand is vindicated and it needs no further dilation form our side. We will be happy in case employees get one month salary Rs.4500/- as PLI. However, it should be noted that baseless accusations and abuses do harm unity including functional one. NFTE will continue to discharge it’s all responsibilities in the interest of employees. Sermon is not needed form such quarter which hurled abuses and accusations.   


        Organise Dharna and Lunch hour demonstration on 12th August 2016:- All Circle and District unions are requested to organize “Day Long Dharna” and lunch hour demonstration on 12th August at Circle and District Head quarters under the banner of “National Forum of BSNL Workers”.
