BSNL: A Sleeping Beauty ?
We all aware  that the wages of TSM / Casual Labourers Working in BSNL are determined on the basis of CDA Pay Scale as they are not eligible for IDA Scale due to their non- absorption in to BSNL. Their wage is actually similar to a Group D employee in the central government. Accordingly their wage needs to be revised automatically as and when Central Pay Commission revises the Pay Of Central Government Employees.
The Last Pay revision of Central Government employees was effected from 01-01-2016 as per the recommendations of 7 th CPC.
    But even after 32 months till now the poor Casual Labourers/ Temporary Status Mazdoors we’re not extended the benefits of Seventh Pay Commission. However the management has very promptly revised the salary of all ITS officers with effect from 01-01-2016 itself as they are Central Government employees working in BSNL. Till now the helpless TSMs are receiving wages on the basis of Sixth Central Pay Commission which was effected from 01-01-2006.
  NFTE took up this issue with Corporate management. But strangely the Corporate Office replied to NFTE that a committee will be formed and only on the basis of report of the said committee the revision of wages to TSMs/ Casual Labourers will be implemented. This is nothing but nonsense. Either the people sitting in Corporate Office are ignorant of administrative orders or deliberately not issuing orders for the revision of wages. Meanwhile the Corporate Office issued a clarification on to West Bengal Circle stating that only after finalisation of IDA Pay revision of non- executives in BSNL the revision of wages for TSMs will be taken up. It is foolish to say that TSMs wage revision will be done after IDA Pay revision.
    On our perusal we found out a order issued by DOT dated  05-03-18 which very clearly instructed to revise the wages of TSMs/ Casual Labourers with effect from 01-01-2016 in line with the recommendations of Seventh CPC. A copy of this particular order is sent to CMD/ BSNL on for necessary action. Yet it seems no officer/ official cared to act according to the instructions of the Department of Presonal Grievances and Pensions vide OM number 49011/ 2/ 2017- Estt ( C) dated 19-02-2017 .  BSNL officers are It seems telling some cock and bull stories to Union Leaders with out any responsibility and seriousness. This casual and irresponsible approach is highly condemnable. We demand revision of DOT instructions dated  05-03-2018 be implemented immediately and wages of TSMs and Casual Labourers is revised with effect from 01-01-2016 as per the recommendations of 7 th CPC.
