All India BSNL Pensioners' Welfare Association.

Congratulations !!! We won the Pension Revision Case

In the back ground of the Govt’s refusal to revise the pension with effect from 2017, we have filed the case in PB CAT Delhi on 10th September 2020. Our lawyers argued the case very well as per the inputs provided by Our CHQ President Com D Gopalakrishnan. This case was filed by the then General Secretary Com P Gangadhara Rao being he himself as applicant and Com P S Raman Kutty , Com Anupam Kaul, Com V Latha as co-applicants. It is a land mark judgement for BSNL pensioners. Our Case has been allowed by a judgement in our favour. CAT has upheld our view that the pension revision has nothing to do with pay revision of BSNL serving employees. It is now stands delinked. Today i.e 20-09-2023 is a good day for all BSNL Pensioners. The success belongs to entire membership of our Association. This is very precious for all of us.

As Hon’ble MOC has already shared his view that the demand of pension revision is genuine and justified with us when we met him in March 2022 and has been assuring us on the pension revision in subsequent meetings with him, we are confident that he will direct the DOT officers to process the case for approval with out resorting to appeal against historic judgement of PB CAT Delhi today. DOT officers should atleast now accept the genuineness of our demand and submit the note for Cabinet’s approval without further loss of time.

We congratulate all of you and all BSNL/MTNL leaders of other Pensioners’ Associations who have also filed the case on similar lines and fought this legal battle so victoriously.
