There is no guideline/benchmark for PENSION REVISION to BSNL/MTNL absorbed pensioners who are getting the pension from GOI.

Hence We request him to take a positive decision to implement Hon.PB CAT judgement taking it as a guideline/benchmark.

We again requested him not to go for appeal since many pensioners are 70plus. Telecom Secretary told that he would brief Hon MOC and seek his approval ; consult the nodal department i.e. pension department and take a decision.
