PENSIONERS' PATRIKA for March-April 2021 is posted from Chennai on 3-3-2021 to all.


The government wrapped up

an auction for fourth-generation, or 4G, airwaves,

generating Rs. 77,814.80 crore in proceeds,

or about 19% of the spectrum value put on sale.

It, however, claimed the auction was a success

as demand “far exceeded” its modest expectations.

Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd,

India’s largest telco, emerged as the top bidder,

cornering roughly three-fourths of the spectrum

sold in the two-day event, on 1-2, March 2021.



The Department of Pension & Pensioners' Welfare has released a new Booklet on retirement benefits of central govt. employees. It contains 192 pages.

BSNL Corporate Office has clarified that Income tax should be deducted from BSNL pensioners on account of medical claims only when actual payment is made. AIBSNLPWA and many other organizations had demanded that Income tax should not be deducted on medical bills as they are not income, but, only reimbursement of expenditure already incurred. The request is not accepted. Rather, many Circles were deducting the tax when the bills are uploaded in SAP, even without paying the amount.This wrong practice is rectified now.The Corporate Order is given below.
