==========================================================

REMITTANCES TO CHQ

After the recent merger of five subsidiary banks (including State Bank of Travancore,with whom our CHQ has the Accounts) in SBI, the Bank is levying unnecessary charges and putting unwanted restrictions. More than Rs 25000 can not be sent to a particular account per day. One branch transfers Rs. 25000 to CHQ account one day. Nobody else can transfer amounts on that day.If they transfer we have to pay unnecessary fines.

Use NEFT to transfer funds to CHQ account.First, deposit the amount in the account of the branch.Then using NEFT (National Electronic Fund Transfer system) you can transfer any amount without paying extra charges. Else, you can remit the amounts as DD or pan India Cheque.

DO NOT USE CHQ PAN NUMBER

Some Circle Units have opened bank account giving CHQ PAN. Now, the Tax is deducted for the total amount taking together all the deposits made by CHQ and Circles with the same PAN.We are made to pay huge amounts as Income Tax.So, Circle Units are requested to obtain separate PAN. It is urgent.

As reported earlier, due to our consistent efforts, the BSNL Corporate Office has restored quarterly medical allowance without Voucher for the Pensioners only. Now, SSA offices are collecting options from the pensioners.

Each and every Pensioner should calculate which is beneficial to him/her and then give option.

For those who retired before 1-1-2007, the quantum of medical allowance is the same what they were receiving earlier till 2011. From that, the monthly amount can be assessed.If the expenditure being incurred by a pensioner is higher than the said amount, it is better to opt for with voucher scheme.

In July 2016, the Cabinet decided to revise our Pension with 78.2% IDA. Last date prescribed to complete the work was 31-12-2016. Neither the DOT nor the BSNL honoured it. Then Member (F) of Telecom Commission extended the date up to 10-4-2017.One month has passed since the second date also. Some circles have not cleared the cases of those who retired in 2008 or 2009 even.

Now, the Corporate Office has asked the Circles to intimate number of cases processed and forwarded to CCAs by BSNL SSAs till 31-3-2017.

CO used to ask data from Circles very often.Most of the Circles do not comply with it.This is the BSNL efficiency.

As all of us know, the Seventh Central Pay Commission had suggested two options for granting parity in pension to senior pensioners retired before 1-1-2006 etc. Orders were issued in August 2016 and the Second Option was implemented. Then existing basic Pension of Central Pensioners (DOT pensioners) was revised by multiplying with 2.57.

The first Option suggested by CPC was not implemented saying it is not feasible . The matter was referred to a Committee of senior officers. Based on the report of the said committee, Cabinet has now approved revision of pension of old pensioners with a THIRD OPTION. It is little better than 2.57 formula. But it is quite unsatisfactory compared to the Option 1 suggested by CPC and rejected by the Government now.

The order dated 12-5-2017 is attached here. It is bit difficult to calculate and find out the benefit.
