Com. T P George, Circle Secretary reports:
Kerala Circle Adalat was conducted by CCA at Tiruvalla today.Circle President (Com. Pada Nair), Circle Secretary (T P George), District Secretary (Com. PMG Menon) and others represented our Association. Out of 19 items taken up, 16 were settled. Some information of general nature of the discussion is:
1.78.2% Cases: There are 8000 cases in total in circle.2500 cases have been received by DoT Cell from SSAs so far. 825 cases have been settled and authorization issued. The SSA-wise figures will be uploaded in the Website of Kerala CCA shortly. Priority is given to pre-2007 cases. Remedial action will be taken to avoid delay in the ‘dispatch section of DoT Cell’.
2.CCA will take up with concerned Postal authorities to avoid delay in grant of enhanced rate of IDA by post offices.
3.Extra increment cases: action is being taken to give the benefits to those pensioners placed in similar situation.Service books are required from the SSAS. Reminder will be sent to SSAs on the matter.
4. Action will be taken to improve the Website of CCA.
Com. R L Kapoor reports from New Delhi that the Anomaly Case was posted for today. But, as expected, it was once again postponed to 16-12-2016. This will be repeated again and again till our turn comes.
Dept of Telecom has issued fresh instructions that the corresponding Pay Scales and Grade Pay should be recorded in the PPO so that there should not be any problem in determining the rate of premium to be paid by the willing officials who want to avail the CGHS Facilities.

It is observed that in many Circles the process of payment of arrears on account of 78.2% benefit is very very slow. Many SSAs have not sent the cases in full to the DOT Cell. Processing the cases of pre-2007 retirees is simple and easy. Readymade Tables are available. Some SSAs have not completed that work even. It tells a lot about the efficiency of BSNL.
We know that processing the Post-2007 cases may take little more time. For that also, we have prepared a very useful Table. It is up to the BSNL authorities to use it.
I personally feel that all organizations representing BSNL retirees should take up the matter for some significant changes in the present system for payment of pension to the BSNL retirees. The ‘Pension sanctioning authority” should be transferred from BSNL to respective CCAs since 100 % liability lies with Government. Similarly the pension amount can be directly remitted/credited in the Accounts of pensioners by CCA offices. Since Department of Posts has started their own Bank, it is not difficult. What is required is a change of mindset. If we think in the traditional way it may be difficult; one can find so many obstacles, hurdles and pitfalls. We must change our way of thinking when the time changes.
Anything can be changed, if there is a will.
