Frozen IDA

BSNL corporate office released an order on 27/10/2021 granting frozen IDA from 1/10/2000 to 30/6/2021 to non-executive employees. After seeing this order some members started asking queries about the impact of this order on pensioners.CHQ would like to clarify the following:-

  • 1) One should understand that citing covid-19 crisis, DPE issued OM dated 19/11/2020 freezing IDA from 1/ 110/2020 to 30/6/2021 freezing IDA to Executives & Non-unionized supervisors of CPSEs.It is obvious that the IDA for non-executives are not to be frozen.
  • 2) But unfortunately some CPSEs including BSNL freezed the IDA even to non-executive employees.
  • 3) By issuing 27, October 2021 order, BSNL C.O has corrected the wrong thing.
  • 4) But, the serving Executives of BSNL are not eligible to get the frozen IDA.
  • 5) In the case of absorbed BSNL retirees, pension including Dearness Relief is paid by Central Government and not by BSNL.So, this order will not have any effect on us.
  • 6) The Central Government has not granted the frozen DA or DR to its employees and pensioners.If that is done, we have a similar claim.

This is for the kind information of our members.

P.Gangadhara Rao, GS
