advice to DOT on VRS in BSNL / MTNL: It
is understood that DOP&PW has given advice to DOT on
implementation of VRS in BSNL/MTNL i.e. VRS scheme
proposed by DoT is as per DPE guidelines and is relevant
for the employees of PSUs, who do not get pension under
CCS Pension Rule on Volunteer Retirement. The pension of
BSNL/ MTNL employees is regulated by CCS Pension rule
and the same is paid by the Govt. from Consolidate Fund
of India. Rule 37 A of CCS (P) Rule provides for
volunteer retirement after completion of 10 years
combined qualifying service these employees of BSNL/MTNL
could be encouraged to go on volunteer retirement under
the existing rule 37 A instead of offering the Ex gratia
in addition to the normal pensionary benefits available
in terms of rule 37 A of CCS (Pension) rules.
In accordance with the
rule 37 A of those rules, their pension is also be paid
by the Govt. DoT may, therefore, examine in consultation
with DoPT whether, instead of offering them a Special
Volunteer Retirement Scheme (VRS), these employees could
be transferred to surplus cell for redeployment in DoT
or other Govt. Departments of the Central Govt. for the
remaining period of their service in accordance with the
scheme of DoPT for redeployment of the surplus staff.
From the above, it seems that
DoP&PW is not in favour of imposing VRS to those
employees who have taken absorption in BSNL/MTNL and
opted for combined service and are governed for Govt.
pension under rule 37 A. Hence,
AIBSNLEA demands DoT/ Govt. to extent financial support
to BSNL/MTNL for their growth, maintenance & operations
as per the recommendation given by the GoM earlier in
with Shri O.P.Gupta, CGMT Rajasthan: Circle
Secretary, Com. M.K.Morodia and Circle President Com.

AIBSNLEA is opposing VRS?
You are aware that DoT,
under the instructions of PMO, has suddenly decided to
roll out VRS Plan for BSNL/MTNL employees. BSNL
Management has been assured that there will be no dearth
the money to give effect to VRS proposal. Almost 54000
existing employees of BSNL are supposed to go out the
roll of the BSNL on implementation of this VRS. This is
done under the pretext of “Revival of BSNL/MTNL”.
You are also aware that
all BSNL Unions and Associations barring a few, have
decided collectively to oppose this move of the
Government and AIBSNLEA is a party to this and
accordingly Notice has been issued to the DoT/BSNL to
hold protest demonstration on 12th April 2019.
The question is why have
we taken such decision? Does it mean, we as Associations
and Unions of BSNL do not have any concern for revival
of BSNL from the ongoing crisis? Or, is it that we are
indifferent about the interests of the individual
members? It is to everybody’s knowledge that the Unions
and Associations of BSNL are very responsible Trade
Union organizations and interest of BSNL is prime in
their minds. For last couple of years the Unions and
Associations have been constantly fighting for uplift of
BSNL in the arena of cut throat competition. We have
resisted every moves by the authority that be to inflict
harm to BSNL directly or indirectly. Years before we
have demanded to roll out 4G in BSNL to make it more
competition fit. Other demands having financial
implications e.g. payment of pension contribution on
actual basic pay instead of maximum of pay scale have
been demanded and pressed for by us. At the same time we
have opposed the move of VRS even earlier. Why?
Association is aware that
there may be individual members who, out of their own
unique situation or personal financial equation may feel
that VRS is up to his or her interest. AIBSNLEA is
sensitive to the interests of individual members.
But we must understand
that the issue like VRS at this crucial juncture cannot
and should not be viewed through a narrow prism of
individual gain or loss. We, the office-bearers at
various level must try to weigh it on broader
perspective. BSNL should stay healthy. There are
employees who have long service life left. They should
not be sacrificed for short term gain.
Our Association is not
opposed to VRS par se. We are aware that in PSU systems,
VRS is an accepted proposition. We are also aware that
in some organizations VRS is implemented to the
advantage of the organizations and the employees have
been benefited as well. It is a win win situation there.
In these organizations
where VRS is successfully implemented, the entire road
map is carefully chalked out on long drawn perspective.
VRS is planned 2-3 years before. The targeted employees
are identified carefully, mapping the need of the field
and the action for suitable replacement is initiated
well in advance. So that there is no shortage of man
The instant VRS proposal
is brought in a hurry and it is apparent that actual
purpose behind it is not the revival of BSNL but
something else. Just considered the situation how and
when such proposal is being hurriedly push through.
A few weeks/months before
unions and associations were demanding some important
issues related to well-being of BSNL, even DOT / BSNL
precipitated an agitation in BSNL . DOT and Ministry
were not in a mood to consider any of such demand. Even
at the instructions of the higher-ups payment of the
salary of employees was stalled. Now when the entire
country press into election mode and Model Code of
Conduct is affected. Suddenly all this proposals were
brought in the hasty move. BSNL Unions and Associations
and other stake holders of BSNL have never been taken in
to confidence or even consulted before taking such hasty
decision. What is the reason?
We are sure this may be
anything other than in the interest of BSNL. By such
move they want to harm BSNL and make it in a retrograde
situation in the competitive scenario. Privatization may
also be hidden agenda.
On the contrary, consider
the case of MTNL where VRS has been implemented twice so
far. But the net result is that MTNL became weaker and
weaker at this. Now when DOT is proposing VRS in MTNL
for the third time to reduce 10000 employees, MTNL is
having at present 22000 employees and already
experiencing acute shortage of working hands in the
field units. The revenue hits at the lowest bottom. The
strength of employees has been reduced drastically but
so is the customer base and revenue earning. None in
DOT/Govt is interested to look at it. It is as if,
reducing the employees is their ultimate objective and
not revival of MTNL. One can easily understand what is
going to happen in MTNL in coming few days.
For BSNL, VRS is being
thought of only from one angle. Let the strength of the
employees be reduced so that present wage bill is
reduced. But there is no consideration about the
resultant impact in the field units. We are certain that
minimizing the working hands by applying mindless VRS
without having any regard to its immediate retrograde
impact in the field, cannot serve any meaningful purpose
in the way of reviving of BSNL. It will go in MTNL way.
One VRS will follow another VRS but crisis will
continue. Unmindful reduction of staff will lead to a
situation where offloading of day to day maintenance
work will be assigned to the petty contractors. Cost
will be enhanced but efficiency will be reduced
resulting into steady loss of customers and revenue. We
cannot have opportunistic approach on such a vital issue
which will affect the BSNL and its employees.
