For drawing the pension, the member need to pay 8.33% of Basic & DA in excess of Rs.5,000.00 [from 16.11.95 to 31.05.2001], in excess of Rs.6,500.00 [from 01.06.2001 to 31.08.2004] & in excess of Rs.15,000 [from 1.09.2014 till completing 58 Yrs] from the employer contribution. This can be done by transferring the amount lying under Employers PF amount. 

In addition to that they need to pay an additional 1.16% contribution on the differential Basic & DA , Government of India contributes at 1.16% towards the Pension only on the amount of  [Rs.5,000.00 from 16.11.95 to 31.05.2001, Rs.6,500 from 01.06.2001 to 31.08.2014 &  Rs.15,000 from 01.09.2014 onwards].

Further they need to pay interest on the differential amount so worked out as above. If the member is coming forward to accept this and the employer also comes forward to agree, then the member will be paid the Pension benefits on the average Basic & DA drawn by them from 54 Yrs to 58Yrs [5 Years average salary]

The calculation of pension will be worked out as follows :

Pensionable Service [No of Years of PF Pension contributed from 16.11.1995 up to completing 58 or 60 Yrs of age]  X Pensionable Salary / 70.

The Pension so worked out will be paid to the member on completing 58 years or 60 yrs as the case may be till the death of member. On death of Member, Pension will be paid at 50% [of the pension amount paid to the member up to his death] to the Spouse or a minimum pension of Rs.1,000/- pm.  . In case the children are less than 25 years of age, they will be paid up to the age of 25 years at 25% of the amount  of the Pension Paid to the spouse up to 2 children and so on.

  2. Implementation of 3rd PRC in MTNL--GS informed CMD that 3rd PRC recommendations have been submitted to the Govt and are likely to be accepted by govt  in next few months. Association asked him to implement 3rd PRC after the Govt orders in this respect. A brief discussion was held in which GS stressed that affordability should not be the criteria for PRC implementation, because employees are not responsible for dwindling financial condition of any PSU, the same views have been strongly conveyed to 3rd PRC which appreciated our views.
  3. Counting of training period for the purpose of drawing increment--Association took up this issue very strongly and conveyed the resentment of the officers who are being denied their legitimate right as per govt orders. CMD informed that he had noted on file to put up this issue for amendment in RRs, which is very much required to resolve this issue. He assured that he will ensure to get it approved in board, but the amendment in RRs will be from prospective date. It means that coming batches will be covered and for old batches ways and means will be explored how this benefit can be extended from retrospective date after amendment in RRs.
  4.  Changing SCF and Competitive quota as 75:25 instead of 50:50 for Sr Manager Promotion till MTNL promotion policy is revised in all disciplines--This issue was discussed in details and all the doubts of the CMD regarding this issue were cleared to his satisfaction and requested him to fill up the resultant vacancies to bring some relief to the officers who are stagnating in the same cadre for last twenty years. This time we were able to justify our demand and convince CMD that there is no problem if this is done. Let us hope for best. we keep fighting for justified demands
  5. Promotion of all AMs in different streams to DM by diverting LICE quota to SCF quota--Association stressed that the Number of AMs in every stream are less than the vacancies available in DM cadre in every stream, so there is no need to conduct the LICE, but by diverting LICE quota to SCF quota, all AMs can be promoted. But, CMD wants to LICE and said that LICE will be notified shortly.

27-12-16 Strike notice deferred after the Forum meeting with MTNL Management with CMD firm commitment to get 78.2% approved from DOT---

After  the long drawn protest and strike notice by Forum of MTNL Unions and Associations' indefinite strike notice w,e,f 28th Dec 2016, MTNL Management recommended to the government for extending the benefit of merger of 50% DA effectively amounting to 78.2%  in its meeting on 8th December 2016. But no firm commitment was given by management to get it approved from DOT and implement, so Forum continued with its protest action of work to rule, and mobilized employees and officers through Area general body meetings for indefinite strike w.e.f  28th December to get  our legitimate rights including 78.2% fitment and MTNL Revival/Survival. Various RLC conciliation meetings also held in RLC (Central) , New Delhi office. A big lunch hour central Area meeting was held in Corporate office, which was attended by more than 2000 employees and officers.

MTNL Management called a meeting of Forum representatives at 5 PM on 26th December  which was chaired by CMD Shri P K Purwar, and Dir (HR), GM(HR), ED, Delhi, GM(A) Delhi  and GM(IR) were present from management side.  GS MEA Shri V K Tomar and GS MTNLMS Shri Dharamraj Singh along with other office bearers Shri DPS Chaudhary AGS, Shri Sunil Kumar, CS Shri Subhash Gupta, Ex President MTNLMS attended the meeting. All India General Secretary, BMS, Shri Virjesh Upadhyay was also present in the meeting.

CMD explained that board recommendation has been sent to DOT, so there is no need to go ahead with strike. But GS, MEA & GS MTNLMS strongly raised that merely recommending to DOT and seeking financial support does not confirm the settlement of issue and wanted firm commitment from management that issue will be resolved in a stipulated time. CMD firmly assured that MTNL management will strongly pursue in DOT and get the approval to implement 78.2% fitment at the earliest and also assured that other issues will be discussed and resolved amicably in near future. He also agreed to to involve the Association and Union in the discussion and decisions to revive MTNL. After one week, a Joint meeting of Management and union/Association will be called to discuss the revival plan and improvement of services. At last CMD assured in writing that Management will pursue in DOT and appealed to withdraw the strike notice.

In view of firm commitment and positive approach of Managment to resolve 78.2% fitment and other issues, and also due participation of Association/Union in the process of MTNL revival, Forum has decided to defer the protest action of strike notice.

Congratulations and thanks to all office bearers and employees and officers for making all programmes a grand success. Keep it up

Association stressed on MTNL & BSNL merger. Secretary also agreed that merger is the only permanent solution of  MTNL revival and survival, but there are certain issues which need to be addressed before merger and it will take some time. GS asked him that till merger takes place, there is need to focus on certain issues to improve the financial condition of the MTNL and also made clear that employees are not responsible for today's condition of MTNL. Association stressed that first thing which is important for MTNL revival is regular CMD and proper coordination and trust amongst board of Directors, and also employees satisfaction, which is missing in MTNL.  And 2nd thing is the funds for expansion, up gradation and maintenance of services. Focus of the discussion was on these issues and Secretary said that chances are very rare that govt will provide financial support and funds will have to be generated by MTNL itself. He said that he wanted to reduce staff cost through VRS, but govt is not agreeing to give financial support in this respect. He said still he is making efforts to see that VRS is agreed by govt with financial support. He said assets monetization and converting short term loans into long term loans is being seen as  viable solution for funds generation and all efforts are being made in this direction. He said MTNL revival is the Top priority of DOT now a days. Association informed and assured him that employees and officers are doing their level best and ready to go to any extent to ensure the MTNL revival.  Association submitted to him a detailed MTNL revival plan which was shared by Dir (HR & EB) with the Association on the issues which were raised by Association time and again before MTNL management, DOT and Minister of communications..

MTNL board meeting was held yesterday 15-11-16, in which 78.2% fitment and M/S delloittee report on revival were the agenda point, but unconcerned management did not take any decision on these issues and deferred for next meeting. Get ready to fight to ensure MTNL revival and 78.2% fitment. We have failed to understand that what is the agenda of management, whether they really want MTNL to be revived ?. We neither see any action of the Management to improve MTNL services and its revenue, neither for employees satisfaction and motivation which is the key of revival of any company.

Meeting on MTNL Revival with MTNL Management--Meeting was held in committee room, Corporate Office on 11-11-2016. Meeting was chaired by Director (HR), other officers present in the meeting were, Director (Tech), Shri Sanjeev Kumar, GM(HR-I), GM(HR-II), GM(NB), GM(Fin) CO,EDDelhi, CGM(WS), PGM(D),GM(A), GM(IR), ED Mumbai along with other officers of Mumbai Unit and Executive Associations representatives of Mumbai were on video conferencing. GS, Sh V K Tomar along with Shri Praveen Passi, CHQ Vice President, Shri P K Gupta, CHQ Vice President, Shri D P S Chaudhary, AGS & Shri Sunil Kumar, CS Delhi attended meeting along with representatives of other Associations.  Shri P N Vasene CHQ President & Shri G P Yadav Circle Secretary Mumbai along with other office bearers were on video conferencing.

M/S Delloitte, a consultant appointed by MTNL management , submitted its report which  was taken for discussion. The basic salient point in the report was basically on as to how to revive the MTNL both operationally and financially. The time line suggested in the report for revival of MTNL was given to be in year 2024, which is not an acceptable preposition and Association asked to keep time line for 2 to 3 years.

The thrust was on reducing the retirement age to 58 years, so as to reduce the staff cost. In turn MEA suggested that instead of reducing the retirement age, emphasis should be on revenue growth by optimum utilization of manpower. As such, therefore, MEA along with other Associations categorically rejected the suggestion of reducing the age to 58 years in the report by M/S Delloitte but did not oppose the VRS proposal of management to reduce staff cost. ( if size of the shoe is short, you can not cut the foot to get fit in it, rather size of shoe is to be increased to get foot fit in it. Therefore revenue is to be increased to reduce staff cost)

Association also raised that the Delloitte report failed in fully appreciating the need of HR issues and staff satisfaction without which revival of MTNL shall be a distant dream. GS also raised certain issues to draw the attention on how management's negative  approach towards HR issues is demoralizing the officers, and asked to resolve pending HR issues to prepare and motivate officers to get MTNL revived.

GS also raised that reducing staff cost alone cannot work in revival of MTNL until and unless revenue is increased. We have seen that even after offloading the pension liability, MTNL financial condition has not improved, because our focus was on reducing expenditure not on increasing revenue.  Now time is to act on the revival plan aggressively with the focus on certain points like.

1.      Staff satisfaction/ HR issues

2.      Equity infusion by govt

3.     Land monetization to generate funds for expansion, up gradation & maintenance of network

4.      Participation in New govt projects like Digital India, smart city, cloud computing etc

5.      Exploration of new resources for more revenue generation

6.      Refund of Rs 2500/ crore of interest on BWA spectrum charges and other dues towards DOT

7.       Focus on high speed wired broadband ( Copper, FTTH and wi Fi)

8.      Partnership Model

Association assured full support and cooperation  in management’s endeavors to improve financial and operational condition of MTNL to get it revived in next 2 to 3 years and said that we have talked much and prepared revival plan, now action is required. In the absence of early action by management on revival plan, Association will launch protest action to save MTNL.  

Delloitte report on MTNL revival will be placed in board meeting on 15th November. Management has asked our comments in writing on this report.

<<our comments to managment)>>

 

   
08-11-16 MTNL management has called a meeting of all concerned persons to discuss revival plan on 11th November 2016. Please give your valuable suggestions on revival of MTNL before 11th November on General Secretary's mail ( gsmtnlea@yahoo.com) or whatsapp on GS's mobile.  The request letter from MTNL management is attached as follows .... <letter>.

20-08-16 Exclusive interview of Honbl'e Minister of Telecom Sh Manoj Sinha with First Post regarding current condition of telecom industry in India and also about MTNL & BSNL:

I am not the minister for just BSNL and MTNL but entire telecom industry. It is my responsibility to ensure consumer satisfaction and protect consumer interests. BSNL and MTNL have a lot of legacy problems. MTNL is worse. More than 70 Per cent of the revenue goes for salaries and pension. Some spectrum which they should not have procured, they had to take out of compulsion of being a government company. MTNL took a big loan whose interest is a burden to pay. Their financial condition kept deteriorating since 2008. In MTNL’s case, we are trying to revive it so that it can stand on its own. I believe that the existence of BSNL and MTNL is required to ensure healthy competition. we are not keeping them alive artificially. Employees of MTNL also realize this. The problem is that the average age of employees in MTNL is 54-55. We have to infuse new blood into the organisation. And we are working on that. Our intention is to make MTNL professionally-run, competent and efficient. <<<< click for full interview >>>>

He said that management has written to DOT to give financial support to implement 78.2%. We have informed him very clearly that it is the matter of the management how to arrange funds for the legitimate rights of the employees who  are not responsible for today's financial condition of the company, but it is  Govt and management who are responsible for it. It has also been conveyed to him clearly that by ignoring human resource of the company, no efforts can revive and survive the company.

He informed that Delloitte consultant has been hired to prepare the revival plan of the company. We have asked Dir (HR) to get company's future liabilities like 78.2% fitment and pay revision in this revival plan so that correct picture of can be projected before the govt.

Issues like parity of pay with BSNL in 2017, and freezing financial upgradation were also mentioned by Dir (HR). We have strongly opposed any such thinking of the management and warned stringent protest action to stop such ill motives of the management.

Make Full preparations to make Forum protest action a grand success to protect the company and welfare issues of the employees. We have achieved every thing in this department/ Company through our hard work and consistent struggle. Rise to the occasion to  protect our rights and achieve our legitimate demands. 

Make proper co ordination with Non Executives and stand strong for our cause.

   
 

NCOA Leaders with 3rd PRC Chairman and Members


 

NCOA presentation before 3rd PRC:

NCOA representing more than 1.6 lakh Executives of 264 CPSUs gave a detailed presentation before the 3rd Pay Revision Committee. On 03.08.2016 discussions held in the Committee room for about 01 hr 15 mts with Chairman  Justice Satish Chandra (Retd) and Members Sri Shailendra Pal Singh and Sri Madhukar Gupta,  Add Sec/DPE ,after detailed discussion, Chairman directed us to give a detailed presentation on all the issues before the full 3rd Pay Revision Committee on 04.08.2016 at 3 pm.

On 04.08.2016, NCOA had given an excellent presentation on various demands. As suggested by the PRC members, the presentation was made with full justification of the demands with possible solutions also. Eventhough the allotted time was only 20 minutes, the presentation and discussion took more than one hour. In addition to Chairman and all PRC members Shri Jugal Mohapatra, Prof Manoj Panda, Sri Shailendra Pal Singh and Sri Madhukar Gupta, Sec/DPE and officers from SCOPE also present in the meeting. All the issues discussed in detail. Chairman and PRC members had lot of queries and NCOA could clarify all the points to their satisfaction.

These are the some important issues deliberated in the meeting with PRC: Total presentation of 35 slides was made
 

1) PRC should be implemented for all the CPSUs without linking with affordability. Our main focus was on this important aspect. Employees having limited role in loss /profit of the company. They are depending on Govt/company policies, market conditions and other external factors. Balance sheet is prepared on the basis of several factors like depreciation. We explained with the example of BSNL where the operational profit is about 2000 Cr but due to huge depreciation value, balance sheet still shows losses. The Operating profit concept very much appreciated by the PRC. We could convince PRC that profit/loss alone cannot be the criteria for revision of Pay.

 Periodicity. It should be 5 years, co-terminus with Non executives.

  Pay Scales: New pay scales may be arrived with IDA as on Jan 2017 merged with basic Pay with fitment of 30% on basic Pay plus DA and rounded off to nearest 100. All pay scales should be open ended to address stagnation as recommended by 2nd PRC and 7th CPC.

  Fitment: Uniform fitment of 30%.

  Dearness Allowance: Present System of 100% neutralisation on quarterly basis, based on AICPI shall be followed.

  Annual increment shall be 4%. A uniform date of increment may be followed for all employees in the CPSU. Notional Increment on promotion shall be awarded and fixed in the next higher stage.

  House Rent Allowance: The present Rate of HRA shall be continued

  HRA shall be calculated based on Pay (Basic Pay plus DA) so that it is indexed

 Perks and Allowances shall be calculated based on emoluments(Basic pay plus DA). Present system of Cafeteria approach shall continue. The Ceiling on Perks and Allowances may be fixed as 50% of Pay (Basic plus DA). Bell Curve should be abolished as it is unscientific. Accenture, KPMG, IBM, Infosys, Wipro, TCS, CISCO, Microsoft, HCL Technologies, Google, Adobe have abandoned the bell curve based system, performance appraisal. All of them are switching to a continuous feedback process throughout the year to get a holistic view of performance and potential.

    Child care leave to be made mandatory for all CPSUs.

   Performance Related Payment (PRP) with an objective PMS. It should have two parts, Productivity linked PRP and Profit linked PRP.

Even for sick/loss making CPSUs except allowances all The Minimum Salary shall including Basic Pay plus IDA, HRA, Medical facility and Company contribution towards terminal benefits.

2) Superannuation benefit with fixed components PF, Gratuity, Employee Pension Scheme and Medical Benefits for Retired Employees. Our main focus was to make it mandatory like pay scale revision. CPSUs should not be given flexibility on deciding the quantum of contribution.

3) Automatic pension revision for the BSNL/MTNL pensioners absorbed from DoT as per CCS pension Rules 1972. Since the pension is paid on IDA scales, it should be covered by PRC as requested by DoT.

It was an excellent opportunity for NCOA as we could interact with the PRC for 02 Hrs 25 minutes in two days covering all the main issues. Com Baby Thomas, Secretary General/NCOA, Com V K Tomar, President NCOA GS, MEA, Com KSN Raju, Com K. Sebastin, GS/SNEA, Com Vidyasagar/BHEL, Com Lakhsmi Narayan/BEL and office bearers from other CPSUs participated
 
On 3-08-16 in the meeting with Chairman and other PRC member, when GS MEA/ President NCOA Sh V K Tomar introduced himself as General Secretary MTNL & President NCOA, Chairman PRC,Justice Satish Chandra started discussion on MTNL before starting meeting and shared his bad experience about poor services of MTNL, GS MEA got an opportunity to explain the total condition of MTNL before Chairman, Addl Secretary DOT and other members and explained how govt policies have ruined the MTNL. GS also explained the steps being taken to improve the quality of service of MTNL and assured to get things improved as suggested by him. GS could convince him that today's condition of MTNL is not because of employees but is because of Govt policies and also that MTNL services are not as poor as perception is being created.
