TILL TODAY MORNING, IT IS STRANGE THAT CORPORATE OFFICE OF BSNL HAS NOT GIVEN ANY INSTRUCTION ON BSNLMRS BEYOND MARCH 2018. APRIL IS GONE. MAY IS GONE. JUNE HALF IS GONE.

BUT NO DECISION....BSNL

14/06

BSNL CORPORATE OFFICE HAS LAUNCHED A NEW PORTAL TO RECORD GRIEVANCES BY PENSIONERS ON LINE.

HOW TO DO IT?

1. Open our Website

2. On the right side IMPORTANT LINKS are given. In that click on Intranet.

3. A new page will appear with some photos. On the right side, there is a box with a picture of Rose flower now.

below that there is a small box asking Lodge Grievances here (only for retired...)

4. click on it. Give all details.

Adhar Card No, Pan Card No. PPO No etc. are required.

Keep them with you and then open the Link.

07/06

The Corporate Office of BSNL has opened a new Grievance redressal Cell for Pensioners. Pensioners can register their grievances online and the above Cell will monitor the action taken on such registered grievances.

There is a similar Grievance registration system operated by Department of Pension in the name of CPENGRAMS. It is very effective.

But, I doubt if our BSNL Corporate Office will show that much efficiency, given their track record. Still pensioners can try and register teir grievances through the new Portal.

The Letter from BSNL CO is attached for your information and publicity among our members.

GRAMEEN DAK SEVAKS WON THE BATTLE.


The Grameen Dak Sevaks all over India were on strike for last 2 weeks. Departmental employees in Postal Dept. also went on strike for three days in Tamilnadu, Andhra etc. Majority of departmental Employees were on strike for 10 days in West Bengal.

The strike was total in Kerala for 10 days. All post offices in Kerala remained closed, paralyzing the postal services completely for ten days.

[ In Kerala, GDSs are not part time. They are fully dependent upon the meagre income from this job.]

This solidarity shown by regular employees is first time in history, and very unique.

Sensing the anger of GDS and the sympathy of general public to them, the government has come down and taken some decisions.

We congratulate the GDS, the Postal comrades for this victory. Though the decisions may not be fully satisfactory, there is some improvement. Extracts from a news item appeared in media are given below:

β€œOn 6-6-2018, the Union Cabinet approved raising the allowance of Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS) effective January 1, 2016. The arrears after the revised wages will be paid in one instalment for the period from January 1, 2016 till the date of implementation. Minimum allowance per month for the ED DA (village postmen) will be Rs. 10000.

The government will pay dearness allowance of 7 per cent on the basic pay as per 7th Central Pay Commission instead of 142 per cent paid at present. There are 2.6 lakh GDS who work for around 1.3 lakh rural post offices in the country. GDS work in shift of 3 hours, 3.5 hours, 4 hours, 4.5 hours and 5 hours and remain in service till the age of 65 years.

Hereafter there are only two categories of GDS. Branch Pos Master and Asst. Branch Post Master – BPM and ABPM.Timing of their work also is categorized into two.Those BPMs who work 4 hours will get Rs 12000. And those BPMs who work for 5 hours will get Rs 14500 p.m. Some allowances also will be hiked.”

We know the old story of Rip Van Winkle who slept for many decades......then woke up and stared at the world he saw.....

BSNL was formed in 2000. 17 years have already passed. Many people were appointed as JTOs in DoT, before BSNL was formed. They were subsequently absorbed in BSNL. Some of them became AGM and DGM also. After long 17 years when these AGMs and DGMs are going to retire soon, suddenly BSNL has wokeup to see that they were not yet confirmed as JTOs.!! Now orders are issued to immediately confirm as JTO. ....

This is our BSNL management....
