BSNL Corporate Office today circulated a copy of the DoT letter number 40-12/2004-Pen(T) (Pt.) dated 17.05.2017 for compliance by all units of BSNL. According to this letter, in order to process the pension case an undertaking from the retiring BSNL employees may be obtained to the effect that in case the court cases filed against the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 are decided in favour of DoT, the retiree shall refund the over-paid amount on account of grant of an extra-increment on post based promotion under the EPP of BSNL.
Since, the case for quashing the DoT order dated 05.07.2017 has been filed and won by AIBSNLEA but DoT continued to reduce the pay before retirement. Against that AIBSNLEA file a Contempt Petition in the Hon’ble PBCAT New Delhi. Notices have been issued to the respondents. The Contempt case is posted for hearing on 16.07.2018. In response to this, DoT has issued the letter as above to the CCAs now to fix-up the pension after taking an undertaking without reduction of the pay.
